62days before the Cup

I would say the biggest achievement of all was the athletic edge, the struggle for victory, the sporting atmosphere, and the drive that everyone — the athletes, the honoured guests and the spectators — all felt.

The IХ International Vladimir Salnikov Cup Swimming Competition will be held in St. Petersburg as per tradition on the 18 and 19 of December

This year the Vladimir Salnikov Cup will be held on the 18 and 19 December in the swimming center on Hlopina street. The tournament is open to athletes who have qualified as masters of sport. 250 participants who are the strongest in the current rating have been invited by the Organizing Committee. The only exception is the additional opportunity for masters of sport of St.Petersburg: the city has an additional quota because it is one of the organizers of the competition. The Vladimir Salnikov Cup has been considered for many years to be one of the most major European events for professionals taking place in Russia and is included in the LEN calendar. 

The program will remain unchanged: 36 sets of medals will be awarded, including the Vladimir Salnikov "Star"distance - 1500 m freestyle. Also remaining in the program is the Mixed Relay, which for a third year will delight the audience and provides a rare opportunity to see the rivalry between the Russian and international teams of the best swimmers of Russia and the world. 

The winners on aggregate points - one male and one female -, in addition to the prize money, will receive the main competition Cup, the "shark". 

Registration has already started via the competitions website, and the list of athletes invited by the Organizing Committee will be published in the second half of November. Entrance for spectators is free of charge.
