DOHA TO HOST MEGA SWIMMING CHAMPIONSHIP
The city prepares to welcome the athletes competing in the 3rd FINA World Aquatics Convention and the 12th FINA World Swimming Championships between November 29 and December 7.
Organised in even years, the championships will draw 1000 athletes from over 160 countries and the world's fastest swimmers are decided during a five-day showdown in a 25-metre pool. Forty six events (34 individual and 12 relays) are featured on the competition programme. For the first time during the championships, Doha will run a Youth Programme for 350 young swimmers organised by Qatar Olympic Committee and FINA. With the goal of inspiring and motivating future stars of tomorrow, young swimmers and potential champions from their respective countries will be given the opportunity to experience the World Championships first-hand and gain exposure to major international events.
