In some days this 2019 will be closed, but never forgot. It has been one of the hardest and probably the longest season of all times, with the Finswimming Asian Championships held in China only one week ago. It will be also remembered also for the incredible performance recorder by the Russian Pavel Kabanov, who swam 13,70 in 50 apnea during the Finswimming European Championship in Ioannina (Greece). Another high level performance by an ultra experienced finswimmer from Hungary, who at the age of 43, Denes Kanyo swam 400sf in the unbelieavable time of 3.00,81!
But let’s see what 2020 will be like…
