The gap year in between the Olympics is always an interesting year in the sport of swimming. There are no Olympics or World Championships at the long course level. It’s almost like the “regional” year in swimming with all the countries competing at different meets during the year. There were the Commonwealth Games in Australia, the European Championships in Great Britain, the Pan Pacs in Japan, and the Asian Games in Indonesia.

When picking a Newcomer of the Year, it was a bit difficult to choose since there wasn’t a world stage that everyone competed on. But Swimming World ultimately decided on Canada’s Taylor Ruck as the Newcomer of the Year for 2018.

Ruck, 18, has been a name on the rise ever since she won six medals at the 2015 World Junior Championships. In 2016, she suffered from bronchitis during the Olympic Trials and competed at the Olympics as a relay only swimmer for Canada. She won bronze medals in both free relays.
