The FINA Short Course World Swimming Championships are due to be held from 11th-16th December in Hangzhou, China.

This year is the 14th year of the FINA World Swimming Championships and the event has its own website. FINA or Fédération internationale de natation (English: International Swimming Federation) is the international federation recognised by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) for administering international competition in water sports. It is one of several international federations which administer a given sport or discipline for the IOC and international community. It is based in Lausanne, Switzerland.

What is the FINA World Swimming Championships?

Launched in 1988, the FINA Swimming World Cup gathers world-class swimmers in a series of two-day meets organised between August and November each year. Across nine locations, the circuit is structured in clusters (Middle East, Europe and Asia) and distributes a total of prize money reaching US$ 2.5 million.
The brand mascot for this event is Jelly the Jellyfish

This year there were 7 qualifying events held throughout September and October, with the grand finale being the FINA World Cup in December. 
With a busy 6 day schedule of swimming competitions the event required lots of preparation, and a great set of cameras and crew to film the swimming.
