Notably, this Championships will serve as a qualifying opportunity for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games, which are set to kick-off in July.
This edition of the World Aquatics Championships was originally set to occur in November 2023, but was delayed due to the fact that the 2021 edition of the Championships was pushed back from 2021 to July 2023. Due to this delay, the number of swimmers who actually intend on attending these Championships is still up in the air, as many have expressed concern with the meet’s proximity to the Olympic Games next summer.
