The World Junior Synchronised Swimming Championships will be held at Mäkelänrinne Swimming Centre, Helsinki from 30 July to 3 August. Competitors from 34 countries and four different continents will be taking part. The Clean Win programme will also be present at the competition, encouraging both swimmers and spectators to reflect on the ethics and values of sport.
The competitors in the World Junior Synchronised Swimming Championships are 15 to 18 years of age. The competition is an excellent opportunity to see real swim stars, as the best junior swimmers are very near the international top of the discipline and many of the participants will be competing in the 2016 Olympics in Rio. The events in the world championships will include Solo, Duet, Team and Combination.
The Clean Win programme stand will be present at the world junior championships on Saturday 2 August and Sunday 3 August from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. At the Clean Win stand young athletes can take part in the World Anti-Doping Agency’s (WADA) quiz and win a fantastic golden water bottle. There will also be raffles for the public and an excellent opportunity to discuss the values of sport and antidoping work.
The Clean Win programme was launched in May 2008. The programme honours clean athletes and the values of fair play. It invites Finnish sports fans, sporting organisations, the friends and relatives of athletes and the athletes themselves to get involved in fair play.
