Swimming

For the first time ever EuroGames and WorldPride have merged into one global mega event – Welcome to Copenhagen 2021!
When you sign up as an athlete for EuroGames, you will automatically be part of Copenhagen 2021, meaning you are signing up for a lot more than sports.
We are offering you a program packed with sports, culture, human rights, social events, parties, and Pride.
You will be part of a unique experience, including professionally-organized tournaments, a grand EuroGames Opening Ceremony where you will take the stage alongside thousands of other athletes, the chance to witness a remarkable show, and running the Mile of Pride. You will get access to our Sports Village, and you will have the opportunity to participate in many extraordinary events throughout your stay. This includes joining the WorldPride Parade with all the EuroGames athletes and around 60.000 other participants while 750.000 spectators will show their support.
So we urge you to stay for as long as possible and we promise you won’t get bored! We are looking forward to seeing you at Copenhagen 2021 where #YouAreIncluded.
