Starting the season our first stop is in Golfo Aranci, Sardinia. This will mark the first time Italy has hosted a World Aquatics Open Water Swimming event. Taking place from the 20th to the 21st of May.  

Olympic and FINA World Champion Paltrinieri is among those eagerly anticipating next season’s competitions.

It’s a great feeling to hear that next season we’ll start in Sardinia, racing in Italy is always special. I’m sure we’ll get a lot of fans and friends coming over to Sardinia to cheer us on. Sardinia is a beautiful place, especially for open water swimming. I’m really glad that a World Aquatics event is back in Italy.

World Aquatics President Husain Al-Musallam also expressed his excitement for next season’s competition calendar. “We have the right mix of familiar hosts together with a new host and competition venue to add to our open water swimming racing calendar in 2023,” the FINA President said. “From our start in Sardinia, to the season’s end in Eilat, we can continue to see some of the best performances and closest finishes ever in open water swimming throughout the World Aquatics Open Water Swimming World Cup 2023."
