Budapest to host extraordinary FINA World Championships
Budapest will host an extraordinary FINA World Championships in the summer, the international swimming federation said on Monday, according to a report by state news wire MTI.
The Hungarian capital will host the championships from June 18 until July 3, 2022.
The agreement on hosting the event, announced by Prime Minister Viktor Orbán and FINA President Husain Al-Musallam, "ensures athletes have a global aquatics championship to target in the summer of 2022".
A week earlier, FINA announced that the 19th FINA World Championships, initially scheduled to take place in Fukuoka, Japan, on May 13-29, 2022, were rescheduled for July 14-30, 2023. The measure was taken "due to the current health impacts of the Omicron COVID-19 variant and the pandemic measures currently in place in Japan", FINA said on Monday.
Budapest hosted the FINA worlds in 2017.
