Again a nice battles between some big names are coming. I like the fact that this is not too serious and stars can compete against each other in a relaxed way. This photo tells it all, if a car has room in the backseat for Frenchman, Spaniard, American and Dane, it can’t be too serious :):

I’d have hoped that they reverse the schedule at the next World Cup meet. They didn’t and same events are swum on first and second days.

With regard to venue for 2014 Euro Champs they are going to have swimming events in the adjacent velodrom building. You can see nice photos of the venue here:

I think it’s a quite good size for swimming, but a temporary pool is needed once again.
