A comment from the Nicosia Grand Prix Race & Performance Director, Stavros Michaelides:

Dear Friends Welcome to Cyprus and the Nicosia International Swim meet.

For many years we ‘ve been wanting to host an international swimming event in our capital city and this year it’s becoming a reality. Using the “if you build it, they will come “motto we want this inaugural edition of our swim meet to become established as an institution and a celebration of the sport of swimming for many years to come.
We want to offer fast swimming in a great competitive fun environment in the Nicosia Olympic Aquatic complex. An Olympic size 50m pool with a new generation timing system and starting blocks by ALGE.
