High Above the Kremlin Tops – 2015 FINA World Championships


High diving - Kazan

High Above the Kremlin Tops

Here in my hometown of Kazan the 2015 FINA World Championships started on July 24th and will conclude on August 9th. This has been a great pleasure for me since I used to be a spring board diver in my younger years. Visiting this event has meant a short walk down to the Kazanka river to watch my favorite sport. This is the 16th year of the Championships – those who will be participating in the event was revealed in Mexico earlier with Orlando Duque taking first place, he will be defending his title against those in the following roster. This also includes the women who qualified as well. See more here.

  1. Opening Ceremony (in HD) (in rus)

    Overview:

    Main part (HD)

    Some say very interesting and beautiful, however imho it is not very good… senceless wasting of money. Russia has a lot of other more urgent things to finance than this senceless prseudo-theatre.
    We should stop to try to prove someone something and concetrate on functions and targets.
    For what Russia needs such huge and expensive show?
    We must become more wise in money spendings.
