President of the International Swimming Federation (FINA) Husain Al-Musallam has expressed thanks to Hungary for hosting the 19th World Aquatics Championship.
He said after the last event of the championship, the men’s waterpolo finals, that all venues involved in Hungary had been “perfect” and thanks was due to the Hungarian government, to Budapest and to the authorities for organising the event in a short time.
He welcomed the fact that in five years, Hungary will again host the FINA World Aquatics Championship.
The World Championship was originally due to be held in Fukuoka in May, which was postponed from last year, but the international federation announced in early February that the event would be postponed further, with Fukuoka hosting in 2023 and the Doha World Cup in November 2023 postponed to January 2024. On 7 February, FINA also announced that the newly announced 2022 World Cup will be hosted and headquartered in Budapest.
