You can go and cheer for them between 4 and 6 October at the Duna Arena.
FINA Swimming World Cup
Hungary gets to host another outstanding swimming event, namely, the FINA Swimming World Cup. The event series started on 7 September in Kazan, Russia, and lasted for two days.
The competition will continue in Doha, Eidenhoven, while Budapest will be the fourth stop of the event series.
The FINA Swimming World Cup will be held at the Duna Arena, between the 4th and 6th of October. The event is organised by the collaboration of the Hungarian Swimming Association and the Bp2017 Nonprofit Kft. You can find more information on the official site of the world cup.
First stop: Kazan, Russia
Visitors in Budapest will definitely see those Hungarian swimmers who performed remarkably at the first stop of the FINA Swimming World Cup in Kazan, Russia, including famous Hungarian sportsmen and sportswomen like Katinka Hosszú, Zsuzsanna Jakabos, Dávid Verrasztó and Dániel Dudás. Moreover, Boglárka Kapás, László Cseh and Tamás Kenderesi will most likely join the world cup as well, at its next stop in Eidenhoven.
In Kazan, Katinka Hosszú won five events and 11 medals: women’s 400 m Freestyle, 200 m Backstroke, 200 m Butterfly and 200 m and 400 m Medley.
