Lausanne (SUI), December 1, 2011 – FINA launched today a new section in its website devoted to the profile of our top-stars in Swimming, Diving, Water Polo, Synchronised Swimming and Open Water Swimming. 

In this biographies’ section will be displayed the top performances of the competitors, as well as many facts and figures related to their successful career. The access to this section will be free of charge for all those – media or fans in general – interested in knowing better the top aquatic athletes in the planet.
