In order to promote, spread and develop water sports, the Ministry of Youth and Sports, together with the Azerbaijan Swimming Federation and the Baku City Circuit Operating Company, will next hold a mass swimming competition in open water. It should be noted that open water swimming competitions are organized for different distances in open water bodies (rivers, lakes, seas and oceans).
According to İdman.biz, anyone over 12 years of age who can swim from all regions and cities of our country can participate in the swimming competition called "Crossing the Kur", which will be organized between the two banks of the Kur River on September 2.
