After three World Records were broken following outstanding performances at the FINA Mastbank Swimming World Cup 2014 – Doha, the capital is set for a thrilling Festival of Swimming from November 29 to December 7, 2014, as preparations for the 3rd FINA World Aquatics Convention and the12th FINA World Swimming Championships (25m) continue.
The FINA Convention is scheduled from November 29 to December 1 at The Ritz-Carlton Hotel, Doha, and precedes the World Swimming Championships (25m), which will be held from December 3 to 7 at Hamad Aquatic Centre.
The Convention will place Doha once again at the centre of sport development, uniting world leaders in aquatics during a comprehensive conference programme and exhibition. The third edition includes the FINA Extraordinary Congress, a session to determine future innovations and rule changes in the sport, and the 2nd FINA Gold Swimming Coaches Clinic, a knowledge-sharing opportunity for top-level coaches.
“We are delighted to welcome FINA back to our city,” said Khaleel al-Jabir, President of Qatar Swimming Association and CEO of Doha 2014. “Both the Convention and Championships offer a chance for businesses to network and share best practice with the international Aquatics industry, and to promote FINA’s disciplines to the Qatari population, engaging them in aquatic sports. We look forward to demonstrating and celebrating Qatar as a hub for Aquatics and a destination for all sport.”
