This is getting more and more ridiculous by the minute. I don’t know what else to say, but no word really can describe what FINA is.

And perhaps Efimova will be allowed back too… Dont condemn the stars for minor doping offences…… all pun intended!
Its a real shame…. FINA needs a total overhaul…. I actually think African dictators like Robert Mugabe have better leadership than FINA… Mugabe to his credit has been consistent in his attack of the west… FINA cant seem tl demonstrate any form of consistency in any decision they make… Makes them look lije puppets dancing to the tune of their paymasters….
