The third edition of the snowfins was held with TOMSK from November 15th to 20th. As the previous, this competition was prepared with a great professionalism by the team coordinated by Natalia GRECHIKINA and Andrey BURAKOV.

This year, four continents were represented, America, Africa, Europe, Asia for this unique competition in finswimming. “Unique” both for the organizers and the swimmers. This competition has a completely particular environment in this small swimming pool of 25M but makes it possible to the swimmers to be found at one period of the year, far from the great international expiries and thus in an excellent environment.
