The FINA World Championships is a prestigious biennial aquatic sports event hosted by FINA, which is made up of 208 member federations. The Championships, which is recognized as an important international contest, will feature a total 75 events in six aquatic sports, namely swimming, diving, high diving, water polo, open water swimming, and synchronized swimming. Approximately 2,500 top athletes from approximately 190 countries and areas worldwide will participate in the Championships.

As an official FINA partner, the Nikon logo will be conspicuous throughout, appearing on the men's bibs, photographers' bibs and at the pool side. Moreover, Nikon branding will be present during the championships and the Nikon 100th anniversary logo will be visible to celebrate the 100th anniversary of its establishment.
