Budapest will host the "Evening of the Stars"

There are of course the medals, the records, the celebration, the podium ceremony, the joy or the tears. The FINA competitions are made of great Stars, which produce amazing performances and create unforgettable moments in all aquatic disciplines. They are the best of the best, the superb champions of our Sport. They are on all TV screens, they are national heroes in their respective nations, they are true references for the youth of the world.

For 2015, the “Soirée des Etoiles” will be organised in Budapest (HUN) January 31th, 2016 and, in order to establish objective criteria for the designation of the best of the best, FINA has put in place a system by which the classification in our main events will provide points. The competitors with the highest number of points in the end of the year will naturally be elected the “FINA Best Athletes of 2015”. In a month or so, we will already know who are the "new" heros..

These are the Criterias in 2015
