Aquatic disciplines of drama and daring

The six sports in the World Aquatics Championships 2024 in Doha are highly diverse and adrenaline-filled. Athletes will twist, turn and splash in Doha’s cutting-edge sports arenas, as well as the open sea.

Artistic Swimming


Athletes demonstrate their mastery of a myriad of skills in creative routines — often while holding their breath. 


Springing into action, athletes have just seconds to complete their mid-air motions and enter the water accurately. 


Men and women compete across four strokes: freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke, and butterfly. Medleys and relays add exciting variety.

High diving

High divers reach speeds of nearly 90 kph when executing their exhilarating dives. Women launch from 20m and men from 27m.

Water Polo

Highly intense water polo teams have seven members who compete to score goals in dramatic 8-minute quarters.

Open Water Swimming

Takes place in natural bodies of water like the ocean, where open-water swimmers face unpredictable natural conditions.

Hotels and attractions close to the swimming action

Much of the championship will unfold at The Aspire Dome, and its neighbouring Hamad Aquatic Centre. This Sports City area lies in Doha’s Baaya district and offers a choice of hotels. Don’t miss the opportunity to see the canal at Villagio Mall, and take a trip to Doha Port and the Corniche to experience the sparkling skyline of this city that meets the water
