Fina renews with Chinese partner

Fina, the global governing body of aquatic sports, has extended its partnership with Chinese swimwear company Hosa.

The new four-year partnership will run until the end of 2021. The agreement covers the ongoing Diving World Series in Beijing, and the newly-renamed Fina/Hosa Marathon Swim World Series.

Hosa retains its position as a sponsor of the Diving World Series and the title sponsor of the Marathon Swim World Series, having first partnered with Fina in 2015.

Hosa chairman Shi Hongliu said: “We will continue our international strategy with Fina and provide more efforts on promoting aquatic sports in the world. We will try hard to train more young talents, venue building, competition management. We will make it our priority to make aquatic sports stronger and more popular.”

Fina last week sealed a deal for China National Sport Group to title sponsor the Diving World Series as part of a four-year agreement with the organisation.
