The International Swimming Federation (FINA) Artistic Swimming World Series Super Final is set to be held in the Greek capital of Athens with it planned to be the final competition in the discipline before the World Championships next month.

This year’s three-day Super Final is open to all National Federations due to the reduced number of events held.

Just three legs of the FINA Artistic Swimming World Series have been staged, which is one less than scheduled.

The event planned in Kazan in Russia was cancelled after FINA imposed sanctions on the country in retaliation to the invasion of Ukraine.

Russian and Belarusian swimmers were originally allowed to compete under the banner of the Independent FINA Athletes but has since been prohibited from being able to compete from all FINA events until the end of the year.

The United States enter the final as the most-successful team from the three legs with eight golds and three silvers.

Megumi Field and Natalia Vega are two of America’s star performers having won every women’s duet free event.

Spain are slightly behind having won six golds, three silvers and one bronze across the events.

Fernando Díaz del Río Soto was responsible for claiming back-to-back golds in the men’s solo free discipline.

Action is scheduled to begin tomorrow with the women’s solo technical, men’s solo technical and the women’s team technical at the Aquatics Centre at the Olympic Sports Complex of Athens.

Saturday (May 21) is due to see the men’s solo free, women’s solo free, women’s duet technical, mixed duet technical and women’s team free take centre stage.

The women’s duet free, mixed duet free, mixed team highlight, and mixed team combination are expected to be held on Sunday (May 22) – the final day of the competition.

The Super Final represents the final leg of this year’s world series
