PR 69 - FINA Statement: Post-competition behaviour of swimmers at Rio 2016

FINA has been carefully following cases involving post-competition behaviour of swimmers at Rio 2016.

FINA obviously regrets that any such facts and the consequent news headlines they have caused may have detracted from the attention that should rightfully be focused on other athletes at the Olympic Games.

In accordance to its Constitution Rules and its Code of Conduct, FINA will carefully monitor on the actions taken by the IOC, USOC and USA Swimming, and will take the measures deemed necessary in such cases.
