British Swimming has its date in court with FINA on December 15: at stake are world records from 2014 that the international federation refuses to ratify because European swimming authorities overlooked the need for anti-doping samples to be tested for the blood booster erythropietin (EPO). The Court of Arbitration for Sport in Switzerland will decide if the standards can be recognised as world records or not after the hearing 10 days before Christmas.
