No Open Water Swimming At The IPC World Championships

No Open Water Swimming At The IPC World Championships

While open water swimming events are being added to the Olympics, Special Olympics World Summer Games, the Universiade, and in events held throughout thousands of cities and coastal towns around the world, the IPC Swimming World Championships being currently held in Montreal, Canada elected not to include an open water swimming event.

We believe that Paralympians like Gideon Nasilowski of Namibia and his many disabled colleagues world would love to represent their country in an open water swimming event in the IPC Swimming World Championships.
