Windsor 2016

The Championships in 10 clicks

December 05th, 2016


Florent Manaudou (FRA) swam the fastest race in the history of the Championships: 50m free in 20.26 in Doha (QAT, 2014)


One of the strongest images in the history of the Championships: the triumph of Alia Atkinson (JAM) in the 100m breast in 2014 in a WR time of 1:02.36


Number of WR established by Katinka Hosszu (HUN) in 2014: 100m back, 200m back, 100m IM and 200m IM

Maxi Gold

Brooke Hanson (AUS) is the only woman so far with six gold medals in a single edition of the Championships: in 2004, she won the 50m, 100m and 200m breast, 100m and 200m IM, and the 4x100m medley


Doha 2014 was the edition of all superlatives: record of WR (23) and of participation (966 athletes from 168 countries)


Recently retired, Therese Alshammar (SWE) is one of the best athletes in the history of the Championships: over 13 years, she earned 17 medals, including 10 gold


The team of Brazil was the first ever winner of the 4x50m mixed medley relay in FINA's history: it was in 2014, in a time of 1:37.26


Ryan Lochte (USA) is the most successful swimmer in this competition: 38 medals, since its first participation in 2004


The venue of the 2010 edition of the championships is definitively an "exotic" one: in the desert of Dubai (UAE), the Hamdan Aquatic Centre is nevertheless a superb facility
