Between 3 and 4 February, the 19th Dachau Open Swimming Cup in the Masters category was held in Dakhau, a city 20km from Munich. 278 sportsmen from 63 clubs in Austria, Germany, Russia, Romania, Syria, and Slovenia took part in the contest. Our country was represented by 26 sportsmen, including Yury Perin, a swimming coach at VSU.
The sports facility in Dakhau has the electronic timing system and adjustable turning panels, same as at VSU’s swimming pool. Such equipment is required for a swimming pool to host international competitions.
Yury Perin competed in three backstroke distances (50m, 100m, and 200m), and won all three.
