2011 FINA/ARENA Swimming World Cup

Dates: 7-8 October 2011
Location: Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Sports Complex


World class swimming  returned to Dubai in October as some of the planet’s finest athletes converge on the Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Sports Complex for the FINA/ARENA Swimming World Cup 2011.

The Dubai competition, took place on October 7-8, and was the first of the seven-leg World Cup series, which then saw the action moving on to Stockholm, Moscow, Berlin, Singapore, Beijing and Tokyo.

The FINA/ARENA Swimming World Cup series is contested in a 25m pool and sees both men and women vying for prize money in each event. The two-day World Cup consists of 34 races where the winner of each individual event is awarded US$1,500; second place receives $1000 and third place $500, meaning the UAE Swimming Federation will provide a total prize pool of US$102,000.

Another incentive for the top-class swimmers taking part is that a bonus of US$10,000 is on offer for each new world record set at the event, meaning there’ll be plenty of incredible speed on display in Dubai come October.
