THE countdown is on to another top sporting event heading for Glasgow.

Today marks one year until the city hosts the 2019 LEN European Short Course Swimming Championships at the Tollcross International Swimming Centre.

The 20th edition of the event will close another big year for the city for hosting sport, with the European Athletics Indoor Championships also heading to Glasgow in 2019.

Short course swimming is a fast-paced event and is promises to have crowds energised from start to finish.

Taking place between December 4 and 8, fans will watch as European Champions are crowned over five days in Glasgow as swimmers compete in 40 events.

Races are competed in a 25m pool, requiring swimmers to complete more turns, so crowds will see competitive, adrenaline-fuelled races.

Billy Garrett, Glasgow Life’s Director of Sport and Events, said: “Tollcross International Swimming Centre has a track record of hosting truly unmissable events, and the LEN European Short Course Swimming Championships will be no different.

“Glasgow is among the top five sporting cities in the world and really is the perfect host for the 20th anniversary of the event.

“Fans are guaranteed a spectacular event with some stunning competition from world-class athletes.”
