Maybe like Napoleon he should have just declared himself Emperor.

Very nice John.

The Robert Mugabe of swimming perhaps?

Thomas Downer

This is why small teams and others think FINA, 1. NO LONGER represent anything pertinent , swimming, management or action, etc.
2. Will NOT support any actions on their agenda until they are ready to again be a representative agent of the community they purport to represent

Lawrie Cox

Just to correct something that is stated in the article Julio only committed to one term in 2009 not two. It was part of the commitment for him to replace Mustafa and change the rule to cap the term of office for future Presidents to two. The rule change should be refused and the IOC age limits inserted as a requirement on all positions.

So the draft section about FINA Leadership and other members of Committees having to swim in a Masters meet in their age group twice each year has been stricken?

Craig Lord

🙂 Not entirely, Steve, I think just tweaked to allow them to swim in an age band two above their real one to take account of the fatigue they suffer from all that luxury travel and shifting about, not to mention the strain of lifting one’s arm to vote…
