Dozens of swimming records, including three world standards and more than 20 European marks have not been ratified because of bureaucratic bungling and a lack of care in registering new standards. In the case of two world records, the anti-doping samples provided were destroyed many months before blazers woke up and asked ‘why are these records still ‘pending’ nine months on’?”

This is just too crazy to comprehend…

Swim standards, swimmer respect and performance integrity are not at the forefront of the Blazerati mindset. They are not even on the far horizon. They are not even a consideration. They are irrelevant and you, Craig, are a decided irritant when you keep mentioning them. Fie on you. Just stop it. Go away.

Actually, keep up the good (great) work 🙂
