The Court of Arbitration for Sport is set to adjudicate in a row at the heart of the FINA leadership – between three vice-presidents and a fourth member of the ruling Bureau no less – that exposes bitter political infighting. CAS is being asked to decide if FINA stuck to its rules when it refused to refer a dispute to the Ethics Panel of the international federation. At the heart of the matter are: conflicts of interests; the FINA leadership’s refusal to allow the federation’s Ethics Panel to consider the dispute; and alleged American and Kuwaiti interference in European elections against the constitution and rules of the international swimming federation.
