Editorial: Australian head coach Jacco Verhaeren has resigned from the coaches commission of FINA, the International Swimming Federation, in protest at what he describes as a lack of leadership and backing for clean sport. “I don’t think me leaving will make any difference but at least I am giving a signal to the world swimming community that this needs to improve.” Snap. Good for him. Now, over to you Matt Dunn, Athlete’s rep on the FINA Bureau, and many more who know that what Verhaeren says is the truth of it. What are you doing about it? When do you suppose you might conclude that the gravy train has left the tracks on substantial issues and you ought to either press for serious change or join the Dutchman and others in making the point that a federation refusing to listen to its stakeholders is not one worth supporting.
