From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The FINA World Championships or World Aquatics Championships are the World Championships for aquatic sports: diving, swimming, open water swimming, synchronized swimming and water polo. They are run by FINA, and in the pool swimming events are contested in a 50 m, or "long course", pool.

The event was first held in 1973 and is now held every 2 years. From 1978-1998, the World Championships were held every four years, in the even years between Summer Olympic years. From 2001 on, the Championships has been held every two years, in the odd years.

There should be more female events following the inclusion of the female-only synchronized swimming competition, but there is not. Also, there were most like 20 pool events per gender in 2003.
