25m World Swimming Championships

The FINA World Swimming Championships (25m) is commonly known as the "Short Course Worlds", particularly by the swimmers themselves. This event is for swimming only, and is held between the FINA World Championships currently every two years. The swimming events are contested in 25-meter pool (rather than the Olympic size 50-meter pool), hence it is called a short course.
