The First Fina Virtual Competition
FINA continues its series of virtual events for the training centres. On September 26, the first online competitions took place. Swimmers from the centres in Kazan (Russia), Florida (USA) and Phuket (Thailand) conducted swimming heats in pools at various events, and then shared their results.

In the Aquatics Palace in Kazan during the morning training session Arina Baikova (Latvia) swam 400m individual medley, Musa Zhalayev (Turkmenistan) and Davor Petrovski (North Macedonia) competed in 200m individual medley. Davor and Musa showed the best results at their events.
