“We must value our history”, stressed Enric Bertran, its president, in a ceremony that took place this Wednesday at the Old Damm Factory in Barcelona. To commemorate the anniversary, celebrated a year after the centenary of the Royal Spanish Swimming Federation, also formed in Catalonia, the Catalan entity presented a series of activities that will challenge COVID-19, which is hurting a sport that has suffered the closure of its facilities for longer than other sectors.

The FCN announced that it wants to honor the 250 Olympians and, as usual, they will continue to bet on the City of Barcelona swimming trophy organized by the CN Sant Andreu in June, just one month before the Games, and for one of the tests of the World Series of artistic swimming (synchronous). “Between all of them, one hundred years”, is his motto. The FCN brings together 128 clubs and 17,000 licenses, in addition to organizing several technification centers of its different disciplines that are the quarry of future Olympians.


The event was attended by ambassadors of this centenary, such as the swimmer Gemma Mengual, the water polo players Dani López Pinedo and Maica García or the swimmer Jessica Vall. All of them European and world medalists, also Olympians in the case of the water polo player and the synchronized swimmer.
