FINA Communication Department

FINA naturally condemns and regrets the shocking events in Barcelona (ESP) on August 17, 2017, and expresses its sincere sympathy for the families and friends of the victims.

Concerning the case of the Spanish swimmer at the FINA World Masters Championships in Budapest (HUN), FINA was never informed about this particular request.

In case a formal demand was received, FINA would obviously immediately consider the minute of silence.
