4th LAT41° Tournament
Oct 30 – Nov 1 all-day
4th LAT41° Tournament @ Rome | Lazio | Italy

Gruppo Pesce Roma and CDE Halegatos present the fourth edition of “LAT41° Aquatic LGBT Tournament”, this year in Italy.

LAT41 is the parallel joining Rome and Madrid, but it is also the product of a common idea: the desire of two teams, Gruppo Pesce Roma and Halegatos Madrid, to put their tournaments “AquaRomae” and “Sungames” together, setting an annual event with two alternative sites each year, Madrid and Rome.

After the success of the 2014 edition, held in Madrid, now the tournament returns to Italy, in the Rome city.

With more than 300 swimmers coming from sports clubs from across Europe in its previous years, the 2015 edition is certainly an event not to be missed!
