Australia, will host the FINA World Swimming Championships (25m) 2022


For the first time, the 16th edition of this famous 25-meter event will be held in Melbourne at the state-of-the-art Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre. On the shores of Albert Park Lake, the city will host more than a thousand swimmers from more than 180 nations for six days of world-class competition.
“FINA is thrilled that Australia will host the inaugural FINA World Swimming Championships (25m),” stated FINA President Husain Al-Musallam. “Australia has a rich swimming history, and we are excited to return to Melbourne. I am confident that this will be another highly successful FINA event that provides the ideal setting for the world’s greatest short-course swimmers to compete at their absolute best. We are really appreciative to our hosts for volunteering to host this renowned gathering.
After FINA moved the short course world championships from Kazan, Russia, because Russia invaded Ukraine, Melbourne put in a bid to host the event.
The “Garden City” of Australia has hosted numerous important aquatics competitions, including the 2007 FINA World Championships and multiple FINA Swimming World Cups. Other FINA tournaments that took place in Australia were the World Championships in 1991 and 1998, which both took place in Perth.
