The venue for the swimming competitions is the Olympia-Schwimmhalle. Here under the world-famous tent-shaped roof, Mark Spitz collected seven gold medals in 1972 and thus secured a place in the history of the sport of swimming. In 2000 the eighth Masters world championship also took place here.
Neben den acht Bahnen im 50-Meter-Wettkampfbecken mit elektronischer Zeitmessung steht Euch in der Olympia-Schwimmhalle ein separates 50-Meter-Becken zum Ein- und Ausschwimmen sowie das Sprungbecken zur Verfügung, wenn Ihr zwischendurch einfach mal im Wasser herumplanschen wollt. Zur Entspannung könnt Ihr die große Liegewiese nutzen mit Blick auf den Olympia-See und den Olympia-Turm.
You will be able to use not just the 50-meter competition pool with its eight lanes and electronic time measurement. A separate 50-meter pool will be available in the Olympia-Schwimmhalle for warming up and cooling down, as well as the diving pool, should you from time to time simply feel like splashing about in the water. For relaxation you can use the extensive meadow with a view of the Olympia Lake and the Olympic Tower.
There will be plenty of room for all your fans, team colleagues, and friends in the large spectator stands. The Rainbow Village, the central hub for all of the EuroGames, is directly in front of the "Schwimmhalle". The venues for chess, dancing, football, wrestling, badminton and beach volleyball are all situated directly in this immediate area.
About the rules
Competition rules (WB), the legal regulations (RO) and the anti-doping regulations (ADB) of the German Swimming Association (Deutscher Schwimmverband) apply.
The one-start-rule will apply: this means that a false start will not be repeated, unless it is the fault of the of the refereeing panel. The false starter will be disqualified. The allocation to the individual races will be made exclusively according to the times supplied at registration. Those with the slowest times start earliest. The competitions will be assessed according to age groups (AK) (AK 20: 20 to 24 years old, AK 25: 25 to 29 years old, AK 30: 30 to 34 years old, ...., AK 100: 100 years old and upwards).
Competition passes should be brought to the "Schwimmhalle", and we reserve the right to inspect these. Competitors without competition passes should please inform the organizers in advance (by E-Mail).
A maximum of three individual competitions on one day are allowed. Cancellation Withdrawals must be made known to the competition referees before the start of competition.
The classification into age groups (AK) for the relays is as follows:

You will be given special forms for this at the meeting of team captains.
In mixed relay teams two women and two men take part. They may swim in any order.
The EuroGames encourage swimmers with special needs to take part in the competitions. As with all swimmers, allocation to the individual races will be made exclusively according to the times supplied at registration. Starting with the help of assistants is permitted. Participants are allowed to start in the water. The evaluation will be made according to age group, but without differentiating according to degree or type of disablement.
Swimmers who achieve one of the first three places in their age group will be awarded a medal. The awards ceremonies will be carried out by representatives of the EuroGames and the City of Munich during the competition. The EuroGames will make known the times of the awards ceremonies in good time.
During the interval in the competition a show will be presented by two teams of synchronized swimmers.
Please note: Times are approximate.
