One of the special attraction of the FINA 2017 Championship is going to be the High Diving, which kind of competition has never been organised here before.

One of the special attraction of the FINA 2017 Championship is going to be the High Diving, which kind of competition has never been organised here before. The reckless competitors perform from the height of 27m -men- and 20m -women-, who arrive by the speed of 80 km/h near the water. Men competitors start their brave performance – with twists and somersaults- at the height of a building with 10 floors.

Balázs Fürjes, government commissioner, responsible for the development of the venues of the WCH 2017, together with the national and international federations, and with the OC decided last year, that the competition of High Diving is going to be held at the Buda side, opposite to the Parliament, and the lower and upper quay. It is sure, that the view going to win gold medal as well!

For the building of the tower candidate building companies in a public procurement procedure, which is going to be held after the closing of the planning procedure. It is going to happen probably in the third quarter of 2016.

Under, and connected to the tower is established a special pool, which has a minimal depth of 5,5 m. For the higher security, the bottom of the pool is going to be filled with a soft material. The venue in Budapest is going to be special, because competitors do not arrive in the River Danube, in natural water but in a round pool. According to the plans, the pool is going to suit to the lower quay, and going to end at the line of the upper quay.  According to this plan, from the temporary spectators terrace, spectators going to get such a feeling, like competitors would dive in the Danube.
