Instead, here is the Speed Endurance Watchlist for 2011 that includes names you might not have heard about.... As always, if there are any others that you feel deserve a mention, add them in the comments below.
Vladimir Morozov, Born 1992, USA - Currently in his first year at USC (training with Dave Salo), you will hear a lot more about Morozov when NCAA's roll around. Sprint Freestyle is his specialty although he can also swim a great fly and backstroke. With a 22.13 LC 50m Free effort in 2010, Morozov has a legitimate shot at making the US senior team
Andriy Govorov, 92, UKR - One of the more well known swimmers on this list after his 50m Fly silver at the World Short Course Champs. However, if you haven't heard of him, he is a lightning quick 18-year-old Ukrainian. Govorov was ranked 9th in the world last year over 50m LC Fly with 23.46 and was 28th in the 50m Free with 22.27.
Chelsea Chenault, 94, USA - The winner of the 200 and 400m Free at Jr Pan Pacs. Her best times of 1:58.52 and 4:09.80 ranked her 29th in the world in both events. Composure doesn't seem to be a problem after making the A Finals of US Nationals and then winning at Jr Pan Pacs. NBAC's Camryne Morris, also born 94, isn't far behind after posting 4:10.00 at the Mare Nostrum meet in Barcelona last year.
Yuuki Kabori, 93, JAP - Japan has a strength in depth that will suprise many and Kabori is one of their leading youngsters. He was impressive at Pan Pacs making the final of the 200m Free. His time of 1:47.92 from the Asian Games ranked him 25th in the world last year. He is also pretty handy at Fly (52.60 and 1:57.55 for the 100/200m Fly).
Anne Bochmann, 93, GBR - Starting to garner attention in England, whilst the rest of the world is still focusing on Adlington, Jackson and Carlin. She has the pedigree after winning European Juniors in 2008. Can also turn her hand to IM and swam an impressive 200m IM (2:13.80) in August. An improvement over 200m Free in 2011 could seriously boost Britains medal prospects in the 4 x 200m Free relay in Shanghai.
Evan Pinion, 94, USA - The young American won the 800 (7:58) & 1500m (15:17) Free double at Jr Pan Pacs and picked up a bronze in the 400m Free (3:52.56). At 16, those times are incredible in events that its not unusual to see large drops in time from year to year. A promising sign for US distance swimming is the fact that Pinion was still ranked behind Arthur Frayler, 93 (15:07) and Sean Ryan, 92 (15:04) in the 1500m Free in 2010.
Marie Kamimura, 95, JAP & Sayaka Akase, JAP, 94 - Women's Backstroke has a number of talented youngsters who are already challenging for major honours. Pelton, Franklin, Beisel and Bootsma are all now firmly established on the world stage, however Japan has two new women to add to the mix. Kamimura ranked 19th last year in the 100m Back (1:00.70) and 11th in the 200m Back (2:08.52), whilst Akase won the 100 and 200m Backstrokes at Jr Pan Pacs by some distance in 1:00.82 and 2:09.07 respectively.
Rino Hosada, 95, JAP - Jr Pan Pacs winner in the 100m Fly, her 58.45 at the Japan Open ranked her 19th in the world last year. She is just a second away from threatening the Top 5 in the world. Japan's second entry on the list.
Bence Biczo, 93, HUN - Biczo's 1:55.82 in the 200m Fly at European Juniors was good enough for 10th in the world in 2010. When Michael Phelps was 17 he swam 1:54.86. Pretty good company to be in. Commonwealth and World Short Course champion Chad Le Clos is a year older than Biczo and has attracted more attention this year, but the Hungarian still had the faster long course time by over half a second.
Anton Lobanov, 92, RUS - The young breaststroke ace has started to establish his name in 2010 and impressed at European Juniors and on the senior circuit towards the end of the year, culminating in a bronze medal at the European Short Course Championships. Equally adept at both 100m and 200m Breaststroke, he has the potential to outperform compatriot Grigory Falko in 2011.
Daiya Seto, 94, JAP - It is not often that a 16 year old male wins an event on the World Cup circuit, but that is exactly what Daiya Seto did in Stockholm. Winning the 200m Fly in a time of 1:53.57 put him 13th in the world last year short course. Seto finished down in fourth in the 200m Fly at Jr Pan Pacs this year, behind the winner Jayden Hadler, 93, AUS, who along with Kenneth To, 92, AUS and Mitch Larkin, 93, AUS represent Australia's most talented young male swimmers, and had a stellar year both LC and SC.
Alessia Polieri, 94, ITA - Silver medalist at the European Short Course Champs in the 200m Fly, she improved her time still further to make the World Short Course final in Dubai. Her short course time of 2:05.69 put her 12th in the 2010 world rankings. Time to step up long course in 2011. Also handy over 400m IM.
Emma McKeon, 94, AUS and Brittany Elmslie, 94, AUS - Compatriot Yolane Kukla receives the most attention of Australia's up and coming talent, but McKeon and Elmslie are not far behind in the sprint freestyle events.
Kousuke Hagino, 94, JAP - Remember what I said about Japanese strength in depth? Hagino was 18th in the world this year in the LC 200m IM with his time of 2:00.02. He also ended the year just behind Chaoseng Huang, 94, CHN in the 400m IM SC world rankings. Hagino and Huang both recorded 4:08 over 400m IM short course. Another young IM'er deserving a mention is David Nolan, 92, USA who won Jr Pan Pacs in a time of 2:00.61 and is emerging as one of USA's most versatile talents.
Li Zhesi, 95, CHN - Is emerging as a major talent in the sprint freestyle events. She finished 6th in the 50m Free and 10th in the 100m Free at the World Short Course Championships, as well as swimming 52.00 on the final leg of the Chinese 4 x 100m Free relay.
Li Xuanxu, 95, CHN took bronze in the 400m IM in Dubai behind compatriot Ye Shiwen as well as 6th in the 400m Free. She ended the year 4th in the LC rankings over 400m IM with her 4:34.59.
Yi Tang, 93, CHN, took 4th in the individual 200m Free in Dubai as well as playing an instrumental role in China's 4 x 200m Free world record and China's 4 x 100m Medley relay victory, where she overhauled Jessica Hardy on the Freestyle leg.
2011 might be too soon for the following swimmers, watch out for them to make an impact in 2012 and beyond
Ryan Murphy, 95, USA - 57.31 and 2:00.81 for the 100m and 200m Backstroke at 15 is fantastic. Nearly time to add the 'Next Aaron Peirsol' tag?
Lia Neal, USA, 95 - Took silver in the 100m Free at Jr Pan Pacs (not too far behind Kukla) in a time of 54.91.
Gillian Ryan, 95, USA - Swam 4:13.25 in the 400m Free last year, expect that time to come down this year.
Bonnie Macdonald, 95, AUS - Promising distance freestyler, swam 8:37.00 in the 800m Free and 16:29 in the 1500m Free.
Christian Scherubl, 94, AUT - Impressed at World Short Course with his 3:47.54 effort in the 400m Free.
Madeline Groves, 95, AUS - Possibly the next great female Australian 100/200 Flyer.
Rika Ohmoto, 97, JAP - Remarkable time of 2:15.78 in the 200m IM at Jr Pan Pacs won her silver at just 13 years of age.
Amelia Maughan, 96, GBR - Best times of 26.38 and 56.09 long course this year in the 50 and 100m Free. A big prospect for the British team in London 2012. When Fran Halsall was Maughan's age, she swam 26.15 and 56.70.
Beatriz Gomez Cortez, 94, ESP - Placed fourth at European Short Course in the 200m Breast in a time of 2:25.48. Another sign of Spain's improving team.
