We would like to point out that the athletes after the 15th World Short Course Swimming Championships (25m) on the background of physical and moral fatigue has managed to once again improve the results that can not please us!!!!

It is important for us that there were also athletes who did not manage to participate in the World Short Course Swimming Championships, but were able to perform well at the Vladimir Salnikov Cup, namely: Abeku Jackson, Colins Obi Ebingha, Fahim Anwari.

All three athletes at the end of the year were able to please themselves and the coaches with their improved results and national records! Well done!

Dear athletes,
FINA Development Center congratulates you on the end of the swimming season!
We have new goals, new challenges in 2022!
We wish to achieve the highest results, to be the best and invincible!
