Press release from the LEN Office …
LEN informs that the 2012 European Swimming Championships that were to take place in Antwerp (BEL) have been reallocated to the City of Debrecen (HUN) and will be held on the same dates as previously planned, from May 21st to 27th.
The event will take place at the Debrecen Swimming Pool Complex that hosted the European Short Course Swimming Championships in 2007.
As previously announced, the corresponding Diving Championships will be held in Eindhoven (NED) from May 15th to 20th.
The Synchronised Swimming discipline, originally intended to take place in Antwerp, has also been reallocated, with its continental titles now to be contested in Eindhoven. LEN appreciates the Dutch cityâ€™s availability on such short notice and the constant contribution of the Royal Dutch Swimming Federation. The exact dates of this competition have yet to be reconfirmed.
LEN also wishes to express gratitude to the Hungarian Government and Sports Ministry, the City of Debrecen, as well as the Hungarian Swimming Association for the outstanding support that they again demonstrate toward European Aquatics, and on this particular occasion in offering their experience and resources to once more welcome the LEN Swimming Family to Hungary.
