Q How are the events going to be held in venues that do not have pools?
Temporary pools will be installed in Marine Messe and all the other venues for the World Championships. The tournament utilises the compact urban structure of the city, aiming to save time on travel for athletes, to liven up the event, and efficiently run the Championships.
Some existing pools will be used for the World Masters Championships as well.
QWhy are parts of the World Masters Championships taking place in Kumamoto and Kagoshima?
About 10,000 people from all around the world will participate in the World Masters Championships. They will not only compete in the tournament, but also enjoy the sights and culture of the host cities. Accordingly, the decision to host the Championships across the three cities is expected to help spread the enthusiasm for sports and bring economic benefits to the local areas.
The collaboration between Fukuoka, Kumamoto and Kagoshima, which are major cities in the Kyushu region, are connected vertically with the Kyushu Shinkansen line and will surely spread the economic effects of the event to the whole of Kyushu, leading to the development of the entire region.
