FINA World Swimming Championships (25 m)

The FINA World Swimming Championships (25m)[1] or "Short Course Worlds" as they are sometimes known,[2][3][4] is an international swimming competition. It is swum in a short course (25m) pool, and has been held in the years when FINA has not held its main World Championships (currently this means in even years).[5][6]

Unlike the FINA World Championships, this championship is swimming-only (the World Championships feature all 5 Aquatics disciplines), and is contested in a short course, 25-meter pool (rather than a long course, 50-meter pool).

Editions

As of 2012, there have been 11 editions of the Short Course Worlds:[7]
