International Swimmers' Alliance welcomes FINA Reform Report

International Swimmers Alliance Logo

The International Swimmers’ Alliance welcomes FINA’s recently released reform committee report. The report identifies many of the widely held criticisms directed at the international federation that oversees aquatic sports on a global scale. The report also recommends steps that the organization can take to address the shortcomings and improve its overall performance.  

One area that the report comes up short that is of particular concern to the ISA however is the aspect of athlete involvement in the process. In order for FINA to achieve its stated objective - “restore public and stakeholder confidence” - it is essential that the voice of the athletes, from across all of FINA’s aquatic disciplines, be included in every step of this process. The reform report comes up short in this regard.

The ISA looks forward to helping FINA implement these reforms, and to ensuring that athletes are included in a meaningful way going forward.
