The opening ceremony of the ongoing Gwangju World Masters Championships will be held at 7:30 p.m. on Sunday at Nambu University. Under the theme "Wave of Harmony", the 80-minute ceremony will feature various music performances.

 

The competition officially began on Monday, but the opening ceremony will be held one day before the competitive swimming event starts when the largest number of athletes are expected to arrive in Gwangju

 

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.

 

The masters event will be held at the same venues of the FINA World Championships in Gwangju and Yeosu, except for a high diving facility at Chosun University.

 

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.
