Preliminary rating of participants will be published on October 1

Dear friends! XII International swimming competition “Vladimir Salnikov Cup” will take place in St. Petersburg Swimming Centre on December 21-22. The tournament has already been discovering new stars of world swimming for 12 years. Join us!

I would say the biggest achievement of all was the athletic edge, the struggle for victory, the sporting atmosphere, and the drive that everyone — the athletes, the honoured guests and the spectators — all felt.
