SWIMMING WORLD NEWS
March 10, 2020—
The Italian Swimming Federation (FIN) has cancelled its Olympic Trials and a host of other aquatic national championships, in water polo, diving and synchronised swimming, as a result of the coronavirus (COVID-19) lockdown of a third of Italy. The swimming trials had been scheduled for March 17-21 in Riccione but will no longer take place on those dates. There is no alternative date as things stand nor as yet any proposal for how the Italian swimming team might be selected for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.
