Budapest to host 2022 World Aquatics Championships
It will be the second time after 2017 that Budapest hosts the event, FINA said in a statement.
Sandor Wladar, head of the Hungarian Swimming Association and leader of the organising committee, told a press conference that the event would use already existing facilities only, therefore, the high-diving event will not be included.
Events of the championships will be held in Budapest, Sopron, Debrecen, and Szeged.
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.
