Best Answer

It is Micheal Phelps.

The world's fastest swimmer would have to be Michael Phelps because he holds 30 ( i think) world records in swimming.

Breaking 37 world records, Michael Phelps is generally considered the greatest swimmer of all time.

Currently (2009), France's Frederick Bousquet holds the 50m freestyle record at 20.94 seconds. Britta Steffen holds the women's 50m freestyle record at 23.73 seconds. Although Caleb Dressel has a 18.23 freestyle.

Answer The fastest swimmer on earth is seamus sazuki on the japenise swim team. he has beat michale phelps in the 100 backstroke and won 15 gold medals.
