In a dramatic U-turn, Julio Maglione, the president of the embattled international swimming federation, FINA, has withdrawn emergency rule proposals that he was instrumental in shaping after he was challenged for the top seat. The move follows Europe’s refusal to cooperate with executive powers that have been described as “unconstitutional”. The Italian opposing Maglione for the FINA presidency, Paolo Barelli, has seized on Maglione’s U-Turn as a chance to highlight what he describes as “unlawful proposals”, “irregular acts” and measures “perfectly suited in order to create turmoil ahead of the FINA General Congress”.
