15th FINA World Championships – Barcelona 2013

15th FINA World Championships – Barcelona 2013

Will the Old Guard (swimmers over 30 years old like Thomas Lurz and Angela Maurer) be able to hold the Newcomers (like Richard Weinberger and Becca Mann) at the 15th FINA World Championships in Barcelona, Spain?

We will soon see if the hunger of youth can out-duel the wisdom of veterans. It will be especially interesting in the interesting courses that are set up in Barcelona.

This is the schedule:

July 19th: Technical Meeting for 5 km, 10 km & 5 km Team Pursuit events
July 20th: Women’s and men’s 5 km race
July 21st: Rest day July 22nd: 10 km men’s race
July 23rd: 10 km women’s race
July 24th: Open Water Swimming Promoters Meeting
July 25th: 5 km Team Pursuit
July 26th: Technical Meeting for 25 km
July 27th: Women’s and men’s 25 km race

July 27th is also the same day as the FINA Open Water Swimming Grand Prix event in lac St-Jean, the Traversée internationale du lac St-Jean in Quebec, Canada.
