Hetta skrivar Craig Lord á SwimNews.com, við orðarættum tíðindaskrivi frá LEN. Len hevði jú annars avgjørt at halda seg til fyrra FINA lista, men nú er støðan so aftur broytt, eina góða viku áðrenn stevnuna.
On June 24th an erroneous communication was sent out from LEN Office concerning swimsuit use at the European Junior Swimming Championships to be held in Prague (CZE) from 8 to 12 July.
Unfortunately this correspondence ignored the LEN Bureau decision taken in Chania (GRE) on May 16th which was made public through a LEN Press Release dated May 29th stating:
- LEN follows FINA Rules and Regulations (LEN General Event Rule E 1.2) and will therefore prohibit the use of new generation swimsuits that are not on FINA’s regularly updated list of approved models at LEN Events.
Therefore, the latest published list (FINA PR46, June 22nd) of approved swimsuits will be respected at all LEN Events (including Open Water Swimming events) until further notice from FINA.
We apologise for the confusion incurred. Sincerely,
Nory Krutchen, LEN President.
