Members of the AIDA Assembly, I would like to provide you with information for this year’s AIDA Individual World Championships: competition dates; early training; pre-competition (Depth only); and wild card invitations. This information will also be posted on AIDA International’s Facebook page.

There will be a pre-competition (with World Record status) on September 6, 8 and 10 (three competition days); the cost of the pre-competition (including training on September 5, 7 and 9) will be EUR 360.
Wild Card Invitations
For each AIDA Individual World Championship, the top ten athletes per sex per discipline from the preceding year receive wild card invitations from AIDA International: these athletes are not counted toward the maxima (if any) for their countries, and do not need to qualify for their countries. AIDA International extends wildcard invitations for 2015 to each of the athletes in the attached list, for the event(s) under which their names appear. (E.g. if an athlete’s name appears under DYN and DNF, but not other disciplines, then the invitation is for DYN and DNF).
Please feel free to contact the organizer with any specific questions you may have, and to reserve accommodations and competition spaces. Please note that reservation deadlines apply (in order to prepare, and work with hotels), and that reserving after the deadline may result in a higher cost. We will provide you with information regarding reservation deadlines as we receive it; the organizers will also post this information to their websites.
Vice President, AIDA International
