Tashkent, Uzbekistan, August 1, 2022: The Secretary General of the National Olympic Committee of Uzbekistan, Oybek Kasimov, and First Deputy Chairman Ravshan Irmatov held a Zoom meeting with officials of FINA’s Development Department on Saturday, July 30, to discuss cooperation plans to boost swimming in the country.

A number of topics related to the further development of swimming in Uzbekistan were discussed, including building a modern aquatic centre for water sports as part of the Asian Youth Games in Tashkent in 2025. Representatives of Uzbekistan’s Ministry of Sports Development also participated in the meeting.

The Zoom get-together was a follow-up to the high-powered meeting between Uzbekistan’s Minister of Sports Development, Adham Ikramov, and FINA President Husain Al-Musallam on the eve of the FINA World Championships in Budapest, Hungary in June. NOC Secretary General Kasimov was also present at that meeting.

Last Saturday’s discussions also centred on ways for FINA to provide technical expertise to train local swimming experts from six regions of the country.
