The French Swimming Federation (Fédération Française de Natation) has issued entry information for the 2024 Meeting Nice Camille Muffat which acts as qualification for the Finale Giant Open.
The two meets span six days of racing in Nice and Saint Germain-en-Laye, a suburb of Paris, with the former running from 17-20 March before concluding in the capital on the weekend of 23-24 March.
Prize money totalling 100,000 euros will be awarded to the medallists in each race in the Finale Giant Open plus the three best performances in the World Aquatics rankings.
It is the second time the Giant Open tour will be staged following the inaugural edition in 2023 which was held across Marseille, Nice and Paris.
Participation is limited to 300 swimmers who achieve the qualification times during the entry period which runs from 7 February to 7 March.
Any swimmer who is a member of a club from the FFN or foreign associations is entitled to enter and there is no limit to the number of events in which athletes participate.
As a European Aquatics and World Aquatics-approved event, judges, starters and referees will be appointed by the FFN in compliance with the AQUA List.
The 2023 meet featured top performances by the likes of Sarah Sjostrom, Maxime Grousset, Marrit Steenbergen, Tes Schouten and Arno Kamminga.
This year’s competition – held at the Piscine Jean Bouin in Nice before the finale at the Piscine Le Dôme – offers a great opportunity for spectators to see the French swimmers, four months before they compete in a home Games at Paris 2024.
