KAZAN, March 31. /TASS/. With Russia’s accommodating infrastructure, the International Swimming Federation (FINA) will continue holding its competitions in the country despite the cautious approach recently displayed by some international sports bodies, FINA President Julio Maglione said on Friday.
Maglione was attending on Friday the FINA/NVC Diving World Series, which kicked off in the Russian city on the Volga River on March 31.
Addressing a news conference on Friday, Maglione said that the Russian city of Kazan hosted in 2015 the best ever world aquatics championship in FINA’s history, adding that he was glad to be back here today for the start of another FINA event.
