All of the Links You Need to Follow the 2013 FINA World Junior Championships

The 2013 FINA World Junior Championships begin on Monday in Dubai, UAE, and a slew of the world’s best swimmers will be in attendance for the 6-day meet.

FINA has touted this meet as the most participated meet in the four-version history of the meet with 900 athletes from 95 federations. This is not a flippant statistic, given the open qualification standards for the meet.

Here’s a dumb question – why an age minimum?

(I assume to keep out a billion ten year olds from random countries, but ya could always enforce qualifying standards for girls under 14 and boys under 15.)

Certainly glad the covertly tapped ‘event that could change the course of history ‘ has disappeared in only 2 weeks.

Don’t suppose they will tell us what it was. 🙁

Carry on . All is well.
