The heart of our coverage will be live Twitter updates during prelims and finals, as well as our industry-leading individual event recaps on swimmingworld.com. Our articles will be supplemented with photographs from Jean Marc Bosch, who has been bringing you spectacular photos for the past week from Barcelona and will have plenty of great action shots to showcase from the Palau Sant Jordi.
Jeff Commings, the host of "The Morning Swim Show" on SwimmingWorld.TV, will be the chief on-site reporter in Barcelona, bringing you firsthand insight from the arena with daily commentary articles on swimmingworld.com. He'll also continue to host "Streamlined News" from Barcelona, giving you the lowdown on action from preliminaries during each of the eight days of competition. We also will bring you video press conferences and interviews with notable names, and those will be available on our event landing page.
Also scheduled for video coverage from worlds is our popular Race Day show, sponsored by Speedo. After each finals session, host Tiffany Elias will discuss the day's events with Commings, offering analysis on the races contested that day. Our lively discussion and pointed opinions are just two reasons why Race Day is one of our most-watched shows during major championships!
New to our video coverage next week will be a special show streamed live to swimmingworld.com from Casa Arena each day at 4 pm Barcelona time (10 am Eastern in the United States, 7 am Pacific). Hosted by and sponsored by Arena, a surprise guest will join Commings each day on the live show, so be sure to stop by and see who visits the Casa Arena!
Another new aspect of our coverage of the world championships will be a live discussion on swimmingworld.com during each finals session. The discussion will be led by Commings from the media area of the Palau Sant Jordi as he gives you extra insight into the goings-on inside the building. The live reports are scheduled to begin one hour before each finals session, so come to swimmingworld.com each day at 5 pm Barcelona time (11 am Pacific time in the United States, 8 am Pacific).
We look forward to bringing you the most complete coverage of the biggest meet of the year!
