About 6,000 aquatic sports fans older than 25 years are already competing or will compete in 59 events across five disciplines including competitive swimming, diving, water polo, open water swimming, and artistic swimming until the 18th.

During the championship period, the Gwangju City Government plans to offer various tour and culture programs for domestic and foreign visitors. Gwangju City tour buses will run on six routes, while various food, cultural and exhibition events will be held at the athletes' village, a street market at Nambu University and the May 18 Democracy Square.
