The FINA Open Water Swimming Grand Prix race in Serbia was cancelled for 2013.

Plivački maraton Jarak-Šabac is the pride of Šabac and Serbia, but the costs of the marathon organization has exceeded our abilities to host the FINA race.

We hope that next year, the situation will be much better,” explained long-time race director Vojislav Mijic. “After 43 years of marathon racing, the amateur race at the Jarak-Šabac Marathon Swim will continue with the professionals expected back in 2014.”
