FINA leaders were delighted to hear, that the venue-list of the FINA 2017 Budapest is complete
The locations of the FINA BP2017 will be the river side by the Parliament, the Castle Garden Bazaar, and the Ice-ring of the City park „Városliget”. The FINA is also satisfied with the decision. The executive director of the FINA, Cornel Marculescu finds the idea and the plan of a temporary pool at the Ice-ring in the “Városliget” a suitable solution for the venue of the synchronised competitions.
„ I informed immediately the FINA executive director, Cornel Marculescu and his colleagues of the decision of the President of the Organising Committee, Miklós Seszták, and other members of the Committee, that the historical venue of the City-park, the Ice-ring has been chosen as the location of the synchronised competition. It is not a question, that the reaction of FINA was positive! I can say, we got a green light to use the Ice- ring as a location!” -told Tamás Gyárfás, the Co-President of the OC of FINA BP2017 to the official website of the Championship.
Tamás Gyárfás highlighted, that not just two beautiful sights – the Parliament and the Castle Garden Bazaar- of Budapest, but the Ice-ring of the Városliget and the Vajdahunyad-castle will be an imposing background of the competitions and will show some of the most beautiful parts of Budapest.
