Man, Moscow loses the 2012 Olympic Games race and wants this championship. Don't know if it will get this one or not.

The birth of the new Swimming Pole to Tor Vergata will be a fundamental push for the increase of the entire roman sport movement. The Stage of the Swim of the Foro Italico will be upgraded with further tribunes from 14.000 places; moreover two swimming pools for synchronized swim will be constructed and that will rise to the inside of the Stage of Tennis. The contests of swim in open waters will carry out in the extraordinary Ostia beach scene for the occasion upgraded in all its hospitalities, while it will assured free accomodation and flights to all the athletes and the totally tv coverage by Rai.

to host the 13th Fina hampionship Rome has been engaged to modernize the Foro Italico (the sport complex created for the Olympic Games of 1960) and to create a new swimming complex in Tor Vergata that will be called "city of the sport" and that it will represent the third great roman sport complex.

The new swimming pole will rise in Tor Vergata within the summer of 2007 and will comprise the Palace of the Swim that will be able to accommodate until 14.000 spectators.

the complex will rise in the comprensorio of the University of Tor Vergata and will collect approximately 8.000 spectators, of which 4,500 (the totaly capacity with removable tribunes will arrive until to 14.000 places) will be accommodates in the "Palace of the Swim" wch will also compromise a field of soccer, one of basket, a park with athletics track and an arena for the special events. Soon we will have the swimming complex dedicated to all the aquatic specialties: from the swim until to the educational activities.

I think Rei means WATER POLO for "swimming pole."  Right, Rei?  

Your mailbox is full.  ("pole" is un poste (come gli posti degli gondolieri); "Pole" e un Polacko" excepto el "North Pole."  (Si, inglese e un po loco...)

CHE CASINO!  :D

POLE.. I believed that it has the same thing of the italian POLO.. but I was wrong.. otherwise when I was referring to the word "POLE" I mean a KEYPOINT, a CENTRAL SPACE where are concentrated many buildings.. in this case it's a place where are concentrated swimming pools and all infostructures needed to host all the swimming disciplines..

OK; then a 'swim' complex or in older Latin terms, a 'natatorium.'

Wonder if these championships will go to Australia every so often because of the depth of its swimmers and its national program?

Nope.

Montreal was chosen over an American bid as host for 2005, despite the US being the No.1 swimming nation.

I guess Dubai must have a rubbish bid - they lost to Melbourne in the 2007 contest (despite Perth having hosted twice already), and now they've lost again to Rome.

I realize that. However, what about every "four or five editions" of it? Besides, I can't believe that this year is only the ELEVENTH edition of it. Where were the others held? I only know of Barcelona in 2003.
