Best Answer

When an olympic swimmer wins a race and has the letters OR listed next to their name, it stands for ' Olympic Record ". An olympic record means that no swimmer has ever swum a faster time at the olympic games. However, the time is still slower than the world record, denoted by the letters WR. The world record can be set at any official race at any time in the world.
