Australia To Host 2022 FINA World Short Course Championships – Swimming World Magazine

Australia Poised To Replace Kazan As Host Of the 2022 FINA World Short Course Swimming Championships
Australia is poised to stage the 2022 FINA World Short Course Swimming Championships in December this year according to reports published in Sydney today.
The Sunday Telegraph report said that FINA had confirmed that it is in advanced, exclusive discussions with Swimming Australia to host the 16th FINA World Swimming Championships (25m) in December 2022.
“Both FINA and Swimming Australia expect to announce more details on the exact location and dates of the event in short order,” FINA told the paper.
Australia would host the Championships for the first time, replacing Russian city Kazan, stripped of the Championships by FINA, as part of the major international sporting events fallout after its invasion of Ukraine.
FINA has already announced that Peru’s capital Lima had been awarded this year’s World Junior Swimming Championships, also replacing Kazan – host city of the 2015 World Long Course Championships.
It would be a major coup for the proud swimming nation with Swimming Australia announcing just last week the return of a fourth Duel In The Pool meet with arch rivals the USA, to be contested in Sydney as part of a Festival of Swimming, in August.
Australia has also played hosts to three successful FINA World Long Course Championships in Perth in 1991 and 1998 and Melbourne in 2007.
Sydney, along with Melbourne and Hobart have also hosted previous successful FINA World Cup meets (25m).
Australian swimmers also have a celebrated history in the World Short Course Championships– having competed in each of the previous 15 FINA World Championships over 25m.
The Dolphins have won the champion nation pointscore on five occasions – in Rio (1995), Gothenburg (1997), Hong Kong in 1999, Moscow (2002) and Shanghai (2006).
Tokyo golden girl Ariarne Titmus won World Short Course titles in Hangzhou in 2018 over 200 and 400m freestyle and holds the world record for 400m freestyle at 3:53.92.

Wonderful news.

The LCM pools used for meets in AUS are all short, so will anyone notice the difference?
