Swimming 101 - Courtesy of NBCOlympics.com:
Pool swimming at the Olympic Games takes place inside a 50-meter-long swimming pool divided into eight lanes. Swimmers race each other at varying distances using one (or all, for medley events) of four strokes: freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke and butterfly. All swimmers competing in a given race start simultaneously at the sound of a tone. The winner is the first to touch the wall of the pool after swimming the set distance, which can be as short as 50m (one lap) or as long as 1500m (30 laps).

There are 17 total Olympic swimming events per gender. New to the Olympic program for Tokyo is a mixed medley relay, which will include teams of two male and two female swimmers per country.
