FORO ITALICO - ROMA
AUGUST 8th - 9th 2017
Energy for Swim is a new and innovative sports event for the swimming world, which for the first time combines both sport and entertainment. An event, which reaches beyond sport, and reaches out to the non-profit, solidarity community.
On the 8th and 9th of August at the spectacular location of the Foro Italico Swimming Pool in Rome, the best international athletes will be diving into the pool, not only to win victory or beat records, but to support specific solidarity projects and organizations that sustain the protection and care of children.
The four competing teams ENERGY STANDARD TEAM, TEAM ITALY, TEAM USA and TEAM AUSTRALIA, will contend for the final victory after two evenings featuring a new competition format: athletes will accumulate points for their team, not for individual medals as is standard for swimming events.
At the end of the competition, the team that has accumulated the most points will be awarded the trophy, therefore awarding each team member, bringing the focus of the competition on the team rather than the single individual.
World-class artists will perform both evenings making it a must-see event for swim enthusiasts and for an intrigued audience wishing to be part of a new, special event.
Energy for Swim is a world-class event and will have global television coverage: there will be more than 100 countries following the event live from the Foro Italico in Rome.
Beneath the summer stars of the Eternal City the water will unleash the power of extraordinary athletes by challenging their bodies, generating strength, joy, beauty and energy rivalrous waters will release new energy, giving new strength to solidarity
Two evenings of unforgettable sport and extraordinary entertainment
