The wind will increase tomorrow, which may cause difficulties for the swimmers, but it also have favourable effects.

The water of the Lake Balaton is of high quality and has ideal temperature for the men's 5 km race at the 17th FINA World Championships. Szabolcs Fodor race director said that they have been doing measurements for days before the open water swimming competition, which revealed that Saturday's event will be held in high-quality water. The northwest wind will increase, which, according to Fodor, may cause difficulties for the swimmers, but it also have favourable effects. The wind is now expected to cool down the water to 23 degrees Celsius, so it is going to be ideal for swimming. Fodor said that waves are counted only in the outer parts of the track, and the proximity of the stands can be novelty for the swimmers. "At the end of the track, the audience can create a mood as if they were in a pool contest," Szabolcs Fodor explained.
