Nine’s Wide World of Sports will dive in to broadcast the 19th FINA World Championships in Budapest, exclusively Live and Free on 9Gem and 9Now.
In the swimming titles across eight days from June 18-25, the Australian charge will be led by Kaylee McKeown, Shayna Jack, Madison Wilson and Abbey Harkin in the women’s events.
In the men’s races, Kyle Chalmers, Zac Stubblety-Cook, Mack Horton and Mitch Larkin will provide Australia’s best gold medal chances, before our relay teams hit the water.
The greatest female distance swimmer of all time, Katie Ledecky, will be out to halt an Australian gold medal haul along with her American counterpart Caeleb Dressel, England’s Adam Peaty and Hungary’s Kristof Milak.
Making the announcement live on Sports Sunday this morning, dual Olympic gold medalist swimmer Bronte Campbell said: “We’re sending a ripping Aussie team to Budapest and I can’t wait to see how they perform against the best in the world. Our Men’s team is in great form and our Women will lead from the front as they have in all the major tournaments. I’ll be feeling jealous watching them race but cheering my loudest along with the rest of the Australia.”
Diving, water polo, artistic swimming and open water swimming will make up the Wide World of Sports coverage of every event from Budapest, running until July 4, and all available to live stream on 9Now.
