“It was an honour and a privilege for the City of Windsor to host this international swimming competition,” said Mayor Drew Dilkens. “This was the first time the event was held in Canada, and Windsor definitely made our country proud. These championships showcased the world’s top athletes, highlighted what can be accomplished through hard work and determination, created a sense of civic pride, and inspired younger athletes to chase their dreams and find success on the world stage. This is a great opportunity for FINA fans to own a unique piece of local history.”
