Nikon is pleased to announce its official partnership with the Fédération International de Natation (FINA) at the 16th FINA World Championships - KAZAN 2015, to be held from July 24th to August 9th, in Kazan, Russia.
As an official FINA partner, the Nikon logo will be visible throughout the event, and at the pool side.
A special website, FINA/Nikon Gallery, will also be launched to showcase images of the athletes and championships.
Furthermore, Nikon Professional Services (NPS) will set up a service center to offer support and services, including equipment inspections, cleaning, minor repairs and the loan of equipment, to professional photographers covering this event.
The FINA World Championships is a prestigious biennial aquatic sports event hosted by FINA, which is made up of 208 member federations. The Championships, which are recognized as an important international contest, will feature a total of 75 events in six aquatic sports, namely swimming, open water swimming, diving, water polo, high diving and synchronized swimming, which this year will include mixed synchronized swimming. More than 2,000 top athletes from some 180 countries worldwide will participate in the Championships and, as on previous occasions, it is sure to attract worldwide attention.
Nikon first partnered with FINA in 2007 and since then has continued to support both the FINA World Championships and the FINA World Swimming Championships (25m).
The partnership is another effort from Nikon in the brand’s constant support for athletes who are continuously challenging the limits, and to establish its strong branding presence for numerous sporting events worldwide.
