Tech Suits For the Win!
After FINA passed down its magical retroactive ruling over the weekend, USMS went into action to decide how to apply it to our membership in regards to the Short Course Yards season that only exists here in America. The Rules Committee and the Executive Committee hashed it out and decided to keep the tech suits alive until the end of SCY Season. As a suit lover I’m biased, but I think this was a good call because if nothing else the SCY season has already started and we might as well finish with the same rules we started it with. Just a reminder… when it comes to meters the new suit rules apply immediately.
Here’s the notice of Emergency Rule Change from USMS: http://www.usms.org/rules/20100119swimsuits.pdf
