The 15th FINA World Championships (Catalan: Campionat Mundial de Natació de 2013, Spanish: Campeonato Mundial de Natación de 2013) were held from July 20 to August 4 in Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain.[1][2] The 2013 World Championships featured 6 aquatics disciplines: swimming, water polo, diving, high diving, open water, and synchronised swimming.

The Championships were originally awarded to Dubai, United Arab Emirates, in July 2009; however, Dubai withdrew as host in May 2010.[3] FINA then re-bid the meet, and Barcelona was selected on September 26, 2010.[4][5]

Venues[edit]

The venues that hosted the events were previously used for the 2003 World Aquatics Championships:[6]

Schedule[edit]

This was the first time the World Aquatic Championships included high diving.[7][8]

The opening ceremonies took place on July 19, 2013.[9]
