Swimming

Just keep swimming

The Swimming tournament will take place at Hallenbad Wyler, a 25 metre pool with five lanes and an additional pool for warming up.

A sport defined by a strict gender binary, we look forward to offering a third gender category for nonbinary athletes. Male categories are open to all who identify as male and female categories are open to all who identify as female.

The disciplines in the Swimming competition include the following disciplines:

  • Freestyle: 50, 100, 200, 400, 800 and 1500
  • Breaststroke: 50, 100 and 200
  • Backstroke: 50, 100 and 200
  • Butterfly: 50, 100 and 200
  • Individual medley: 100, 200, and 400

If you participate in the Swimming competition, you can compete in a relay as well. The disciplines in the relay are:

  • Freestyle: 4×50, 4×100 and 4×200
  • Medley: 4×50 and 4×200

The relay teams will be formed on the day of the competition. You can indicate without obligation during registration whether you are interested in a relay start or not.

A specific timetable will be published in June 2023. The tournament is governed by the FINA rules.
