The Baltic States Swimming Championships is an annual swimming competition between best swimmers from Baltic states: Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia.


Highest ended 2 swimmers from each nation collect points for their team. Even though there is a lot of competing swimmers only 6 swimmers in each event end up collecting the points in individual events: 2 from Estonia, 2 from Latvia, 2 from Lithuania, those 6 swimmers distribute points among themselves in this order: 1st place – 7 points, 2nd place – 5 points, 3rd – 4 points, 4th – 3 points, 5th – 2 points, 6th – 1 point. In relay competition only one team per nation can score the points, which are 14 points for 1st place, 10 points for 2nd place and 8 points for 3rd place in nations classification. If a relay team (or a swimmer) did not start, did not finish or get disqualified country automatically receives 0 points penalty for that event. Country with the most points wins overall championships.[1]
