FINA cancels day one of World Championships due to haze


SINGAPORE: Organizers on Saturday cancelled the first day of the Singapore leg of the FINA World Championships because of choking haze from agricultural fires on a nearby Indonesian island. Heats were held in the morning but organisers scrapped the finals scheduled in the evening after Singapore’s air quality worsened from “unhealthy” to “very unhealthy” levels. Fifteen events supposed to be held Saturday evening at an open-air swimming complex were cancelled, organizers said in a statement.
