Omar Díaz González informed us of the Mexican Swimming Federation's (Federacion Mexicana de Natacion) 3-part plan to select the top Mexican open water swimmers who will compete at the World Swimming Championships in Rome this coming July.
The Mexican 5K trials for the World Swimming Championships will be held this weekend in the beautiful sea off of Cancun. The world championship trials for the 10K will be on March 28 in Chiapas. The 25K trials will be held concurrently with the 15K FINA Open Water Swimming World Cup on April 18th in the beautiful Sumidero Canyon.
From tropical seas to scenic rivers, Mexico is challenging its athletes in a variety of open water settings in preparation for Rome.
