The FINA Bureau met on 14 January 2022 and discussed the repeated failure of the Mexican Swimming Federation to comply with FINA’s good governance standards.
In line with FINA’s commitment to all aquatics athletes and to ensure that aquatics athletes in Mexico are treated with the greatest respect and provided equal opportunities, the FINA Bureau has confirmed the implementation of a Stabilization Committee.
Activated in the best interests of all Mexican athletes, the Stabilization Committee will ensure that the Mexican Swimming Federation adheres to the highest standards of good governance and transparency.
The Committee will be chaired by Mr Javier Diaz, an Olympian that competed for Mexico at the Sydney 2000 and Athens 2004 Games.
The Stabilization Committee’s engagement is effective immediately.
