FINA Communications Department

Regarding the case of the four US swimmers whose behaviour at Rio 2016 has resulted in suspensions from the US Olympic Committee and USA Swimming, and now that the key facts have been established, FINA considers the sanctions applied as proportionate, adequate and sufficient. FINA notes the addition of Community Service, as imposed by the IOC Disciplinary Commission.

In light of these measures, FINA will not apply additional sanctions and will implement those now imposed on the swimmers at all FINA events.
