  5. ^ The French Swimming Federation (Fédération Française de Natation, FFN), was created on November 20, 1920; and declared official on December 9, 1920 according to the (French) Statuts et Règlements de la FFN page (trans: Rules and Regulations) of the FFN. This is after its affiliation date with FINA, which most likely means that an initial body/group was a member in 1908 on FINA's founding and that group later changed into/became FFN, upon its official recognition by the Government of France.
  6. ^ Note on ISV: The United States Virgin Islands are referred to as simply "Virgin Islands" and not some variant with a "US" reference in them. This is most likely because for a time the USVIs were the only Virgin Islands that were a member of either the International Olympic Committee or FINA. When the British Virgin Islands became an IOC and FINA member (2008), they were given a separate country code (IVB); however, the U.S. Virgin Islands country label was not changed--it has remained "Virgin Islands".
