The stunning Aquatics Centre, home to some of the most dramatic sporting moments during the Olympic and Paralympic Games, is a fitting setting for these flagship international championships. Together with the London Legacy Development Corporation, we’ll now be working hard with British Swimming to ensure this event is a roaring success.”
