4 sports join 2022 European Championships; still no swimming

MUNICH, Germany (AP) — Organizers of the 2022 European Championships on Thursday added four sports to the program for the games in Munich. The nine-sport line-up now includes the Olympic events of beach volleyball, canoe sprint, sport climbing and table tennis.

Swimming remains absent from what organizers said is a finalized program despite talks involving broadcasters to integrate it. The European aquatics body will hold its own championships in Rome on the same dates — Aug. 11-21 — as Munich also hosts track and field, cycling, gymnastics, rowing and triathlon.

The Olympic Park in Munich will be the focus of the multi-sport European Championships, which will involve 4,400 athletes from 50 countries.
