Bangabandhu 30th National Swimming, Diving and Water Polo Competition will get underway at the Syed Nazrul Islam National Swimming Complex in the capital on Friday.

The three-day competition, which is named after the Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman to mark his birth centenary, will end on Sunday.

The last national swimming competition was held in March 2019.

Meanwhile, Shahid Sheikh Russel 37th National Junior (age-level) Athletics Competition will also begin on Friday at the Army Stadium.
