Today, we join Swimming World in highlighting yet another issue that FINA, the international swimming federation, and its member national federations, including USA Swimming, have failed to deal with for 40 long years. The anniversary of Montreal 1976 looms and the first Olympic charge of a team of young GDR athletes abused by their guardians and linked by dripped to State Plan 14:25 without their knowledge took almost all women’s events by storm. More than 40 years on, and two years beyond a request from SwimVortex and Swimming World, backed by unanimous vote of the FINA Press Commission to consider a reconciliation ceremony that would help set to rest the ghosts of a woeful past, FINA is yet to respond (nor has it even acknowledged the request)
