- Start Lists/Results
The Vienna International Swim Meet will double as the Viennese Long Course Championships this year, while the competition also serves as a FINA qualifying meet for this summer’s World Championships.
As such, we’ll be seeing some of Austria’s elite vying for spots on the World Championships roster, although the Austrian 2019 World Championships Selection Criteria states that the qualification timeframe for the Austrian Federation QTs has passed and athletes must achieve FINA A cuts from here on out (until June 13th) if they want to qualify for Gwangju.
But Austrians aren’t the only ones hitting the Vienna pool this week at the meet, as a host of other athletes stemming from nations such as Slovakia, Czech Republic, Switzerland, Italy, Germany, Latvia and Slovenia will also be contesting events over the 4-day meet.
