Brazil’s swimmers may be forced to race under the FINA flag at the World Championships in Budapest next month unless FINA responds well to a plea from athletes for it to recognise the new leadership of the national federation in the wake of the arrest of the old regime on corruption charges.

The hole FINA are digging just got a whole lot deeper. FINA protecting the”Family” ie Nunes and his 3 co-conspirators while they remain in custody????

Who did they think was going to run the show while these 4 remain in custody or are actively defending themselves?

Apart from the gross lack of leadership and ethics, it displays FINA’s true colours; defend the indefensible, look after the corrupt inner circle and ignore the swimmers, coaches and true stakeholders.
