    Hi Evan, can you reach out to me via email? I'm sending out an email to all the swimmers I know are going and the coaches. Trying to get a list coordinated now.

    I pretty sure you have to all be on the same team within a country.

    Hi Mary,

    Reach out to me at jkyff@optonline.net. I'm assembling a FINA Worlds email in the next day to all the swimmers I know and coaches.

    Does anyone know what will happen when we arrive? My first event will be the open water swim and I'm not sure where I'm suppose to go. I'm going to email them in the next day but I was wondering is the new pool home base for the event?

    For sure you will have to check-in in order to receive your credentials. I'm betting that will be at the new pool, but I imagine we will hear more from the meet organizers once the entries have closed.

    I imagine you know that the open water venue is Lake Balaton in the town of BALATONFÜRED. This is 135 km (1 hour 30 min drive by car), southwest of Budapest.

    Yup, looked at a map awhile ago. Just was curious where I had to go for registration when I arrive, the shuttle for this event etc..... I'll let you know if I find anything out.

    in Ricconni you could use your bus pass to get to the openwater...it was just a few stops down the main road in the adriadic sea

    in Montreal it was also a short bus ride to the venue (olympic rowing basin)

    for the openwater in Medelin - PanAm's 2015 - it was actually in Guatape and was 2hrs by bus. we had motorcycle police escort us both ways from Medelin to Guatape and back. 1st wave of busses was for 1st wave of swimmers/spectators and 2nd set of busses for 2nd wave of swimmers/spectators. it was actually very well planned out.

    i can give lots of tips, but if you want to be in the "medal" wave at worlds...enter with a impossibly fast time. as an example there were 5 in my age group that entered in 30:00 for a 3000m openwater. i entered in a respectible time and didnt make the top 50 wave cut. i tried to appeal being moved to the top50 after placing 3rd in the 800m and was flat out told NO!

    like i said, i can give lots of info on what to plan for and what to avoid.
    ultimately you have to chose:
    1) are you going there to swim fast
    or
    2) are you going there to have fun
    it's an exclusive OR
