In the history of the FINA Artistic Swimming World Series, it will be Budapest’s first time to host the competition. After the great success of the 17th FINA World Aquatics Championships, which was held in Budapest and Balatonfüred, the best athletes of artistic swimming will return to the Hungarian capital’s new jewellery box, the Duna Arena.
If you remember last year’s grand event, the 17th FINA World Aquatics Championships (the main happenings of which you can recap on if you click here), you will know that Budapest gives its best when it comes to hosting sporting events. The event last July attracted great international interest with star swimmers competing in the Hungarian capital city, Budapest. A dedicated arena was built for this purpose, the Duna Arena, but all of the venues were perfect examples of Hungary’s dedication.
Now, after the 17th FINA World Aquatics Championships, and the 17th FINA World Masters Championships, the FINA Artistic Swimming World Series arrives in Budapest in May. Check out the program and see you there!
