London 2016 Arena European Masters Championships


The Arena European Masters Championships 2016 will run from May 25-29 in the iconic London Aquatics Centre at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park with swimmers, divers and synchronised swimmers from across the continent expected to compete.

In an historic first the Masters event will be held together with the elite LEN European Swimming, Diving and Synchronised Swimming Championships to form the LEN European Aquatics Championships 2016.

For the first time in three years athletes across multiple age groups from 25 to over 100 will get the opportunity to compete for medals and records straight after Europe’s elite, most of which will then head to Rio for the 2016 Olympic Games.

The LEN European Masters Championships were last held in Eindhoven in 2013 while the last time the event was staged in the UK was in 1991 in Coventry. The inauguration of the Championships came in 1987 in Blackpool.
