The FINA Athletes of the Year 2014 and 2015 were unveiled in Doha (QAT) and Budapest (HUN) respectively in a memorable Gala “Soirée des Etoiles” (Evening of the Stars).

The 2014 edition of the Gala was held after a successful two-day FINA World Aquatics Convention and FINA Swimming Coaches Golden Clinic. Less than two days before the start of the 12th FINA World Swimming Championships (25m) also being held in the Qatari capital from December 3-7, the Aquatics Family paid a sincere tribute to its great stars in the six aquatic disciplines.

As for the 2015 edition, the evening celebrations were held as a stand alone event on Januray 31 in the city which will host the FINA World Championships 2017.
