The first swimming competitions for adults were held on the basis of the fitness center “Olimp” (a part of Andrei Birzhin’s Glorax Group). Previously, the main specialization of the center was to conduct swimming stages for children. Professional athletes and amateurs from Moscow and Moscow region took part in the swims. The coaches, whose wards annually participate in swimming competitions for children in the FC “Olimp”, also came to the start.
As part of the competition Australian heats were held – sprint swim-off. Cups were awarded to the absolute winner among men and women, as well as to the oldest participant who turned 72 years old. The following competitions will be held at the end of 2019.
