The World Aquatics Swimming World Cup 2023 will visit three European cities over three consecutive weeks with three days of action-packed long course (50m) racing at each stop this October.
The Swimming World Cup 2023 will be qualifying events for the World Aquatics Championships – Doha 2024 and Paris 2024 Olympic Games. Three destinations for nine days of racing:
- Berlin (GER) 6-8 October
- Athens (GRE) 13-15 October
- Budapest (HUN) from 20-22 October
From Athens, the series heads to the iconic Duna Arena venue in Budapest. Fresh off hosting the World Aquatics Championships twice in six years, the aquatics hotbed has held three Swimming World Cups (2021, 2019, 2018) and the Champions Swim Series in 2019.
Count World Record holder Kristóf Milák among those targeting a return to Duna Arena.
“For me, it’s always special to swim in the Duna Arena at a highlighted international meet. I have only fond memories of racing in this palace, I consider lane four my second home. I broke the world record last year here, won world titles, European titles,” Milak said. “I also train here every day, so being part of World Cup action once more in the Arena will be fabulous. I can’t wait to compete in front of our home crowd, our fantastic fans, that’s really unique and uplifting.”
