World record progression 1500 metres freestyle

The first world record in the men's 1500 metres freestyle in a long course (50 metres) swimming pool was recognised by the International Swimming Federation (FINA) in 1908.[1] In short course (25 metres) pools, the world's governing body recognizes world records since March 3, 1991.
