FINA’s Video Description:
The 17th FINA World Championships will be held in Budapest and Balatonfüred from July 14th to 30th, 2017. Lining up almost 3,000 athletes in six different disciplines, competing in 75 contests over a period of 17 days, the FINA Championships will impose a huge challenge on its organisers, since the preparation period was curtailed to four years.
In Budapest, we’ll get a chance to see some of the breakout stars from the Rio Olympics take the stage again. Athletes from 6 different aquatic sports will be competing at the event:
- pool swimming
- open water swimming
- water polo
- synchronized swimming
- high diving
Pool swimming, synchro swimming, diving, and water polo will all take place at the newly constructed Palace of the Pools facility.
