LAC’s Tomoe Hvas disqualification overturned in Regular Season Match 8


This morning the International Swimming League appealed the disqualification of the LAC swimmer Tomoe Hvas during the 200IM event on 18 September 2021.

The Italian Swimming Federation (FIN) appeal board convened a meeting today, Sunday, 19 September, at 12.00pm in Naples, Italy.

The members of the appeal board present were:

1. Luca Piscopo
2. Walter Bolognani
3. Massimo Gomez

After reviewing the video footage of the race, the FIN appeal board accepted ISL’s appeal against the disqualification and reinstated the result of Tomoe Hvas.

Following the decision of the FIN appeal board the International Swimming League has recalculated the relative positions of the individual and team’s scores.
