FINA/Midea Diving World Series stops in Guadalajara (MEX) and Mexico City (MEX) this May
The FINA/Midea Diving World Series is a high-profile competition which offers an annual meeting opportunity for the world’s brightest diving stars. Launched in 2007 with three host organisers (Great Britain, China and Mexico), other countries have since joined the club (Qatar, Russia and the United Arab Emirates), definitely adding an international dimension to the event.
For the sixth edition in 2013, the World Series will consist of six meets: No1 in Beijing (CHN) from March 15-17, No2 in Dubai (UAE) from March 21-23, No3 in Edinburgh (GBR) from April 19-21, No4 in Moscow (RUS) from April 26-28, No5 in Guadalajara (MEX) from May 17-19, and No6 in Mexico City (MEX) from May 24-26.
The diving programme for men and women includes 3m springboard, 10m platform, 3m springboard synchro and 10m platform synchro.
This prestigious, exclusive event promotes awareness about which countries are renowned for the sport, while fostering the discipline’s growth in the host nations and other parts of the world. Overall, the Series also aims to increase international exposure to the sport of diving, which has been an Olympic sport for men since 1904 and women since 1912.
