Discover Hungary by swimming!
The Open Water Tournament (OWT) is a unique open water swimming tournament that pits swimmers against each other over a number of different distances and water types, allowing them to experience Hungary’s diverse aquatic environment while using it as a sports venue. At the end of the tournament, the champions of Hungarian open water swimming will be selected, but every participant will finish with a much clearer picture of the type and distance of open water they perform the best in.
“…there is no march in mud, no avoiding buoys, or accumulated mass of water, only the finish line, the aquatic environment and YOU!”
