Fina World Swimming Championships

The 15th Fina World Swimming Championships are set to happen at the state-of-the-art Etihad Arena for the first time in history.

Over 1,000 swimmers from across the globe will be in the capital competing in 44 different swimming events between 16 to 21 December 2021.

The event will feature men’s and women’s events in all four strokes – freestyle, breaststroke, backstroke, and butterfly – along with the individual medley and relays.

Fun fact- the world logo of the championships features a swimmer constructed from pearls who is powering through the water, pointing to the city’s proud pearl-diving history and the competitive nature of the tournament itself.
