BUDAPEST, Hungary — Russia and Hungary will host two future editions of the world championships in short-course swimming.

Swimming's world governing body, FINA, says Kazan will host in 2022 and Budapest in 2024. They beat bids from Hong Kong and Taipei City.

The 25-meter pool championships are staged every two years in December, and include hosting the FINA World Aquatics Convention.

The decision was announced Monday in Budapest, which is currently staging the two-yearly world championships over the full 50-meter distance.

Kazan in the Russian region of Tatarstan staged the previous 50-meter worlds in 2015.

Tatarstan sports minister Vladimir Leonov says: "We are known as the sport capital of Russia, and everyone in the FINA Family fully understands the meaning of this status."
