The majority of these were wrong. The right ones had formatting inconsistencies, or the wrong time.  Only a couple were completely right so I just redid the list. I kept them in the same order they are currently in, hopefully it isn't too hard to edit.

Many records have fallen in the past couple of years, some of these have been rebroken quickly. The suit era times are finally being surpassed. After the banning of certain suits (extremely aerodynamic, masterpieces of engineering, nearly impossible to put on), we went many years with very little action in terms of new swimming world records. Now that the athletes have caught up to those now-illegal suits, we are seeing a lot of records being broken in rapid succession. I will try to keep up :).

As you can see, Sarah Sjostrom, Katie Ledecky, and Katinka "Iron Lady" Hosszu have been particulary active. I think the Ledecky records may stand for quite some time when she is done breaking them herself, much like those of Janet Evans did.  I'm watching that 58.00 in the 100 backstroke, there are a couple women I'm sure will want to be first sub-58 in that event.

Would love for Ledecky to break 8 minutes in the 800, but I'm not sure she will be able to.

Sorry for the crazy formatting and errors.  Thanks again!

I must have been rushing... 100m Individual would be impossible in long course.

Fixed the medley and added the freestyle. The other 3 are causing me grief. They won't add so I have to figure out why not before I can add them.
