The 8th edition of the FINA World Junior Swimming Championships will commence on 30th August 2022 and will go on till 4th September 2022. The competition which will witness numerous talented young swimmers will be held in the city of Lima, Peru.

Preview

India has not been able to clinch a medal at the World juniors, but there's a little hope with the presence of some really promising youngsters in the contingent. Vedaant Madhavan is perhaps the biggest star in the team given his sparkling form leading up to the competition.

The 17-year-old has been collecting medals as well as national records this year. Back in April, he shone in the Danish Open 2022 by winning a gold medal in the 800m freestyle category. Later in the year, the Maharashtra local created a new meet record at the Junior National Aquatic Championship in the 1500m freestyle event.

Another promising swimmer is Apeksha Fernandes. Last month, Fernandes broke five national records in five days in the Junior Nationals. She made the breaststroke and butterfly events her own.

Both Madhavan and Fernandes are strong medal hopefuls for India while others like Sambhav Rao, Aryan Nehra, Aneesh Gowda, and Ridhima Veerendrakumar aim to make their marks at the meet as well.

In the 7th edition of the competition which was held in Budapest in 2019, USA came out as table toppers with 37 medals which included 18 gold.
