PHOENIX, Arizona, October 12. OUR new poll this week focuses on the recent document created by the Centers for Disease Control, in particular a portion of the document that recommends that racing starts be held in pools 6 feet 7 inches deep or deeper. USA Swimming and other national federations only require a depth of 4 feet for non-national championships, and the CDC has said this recommendation wouldn't be a mandate.
Do you think the CDC's recommended depth of 6 feet 7 inches is too deep, not deep enough, or just right? Go to swimmingworldmagazine.com/poll to place your vote. You have until next Friday.
As more news surfaces about allegations of sexual misconduct about coaches in the era before USA Swimming came into existence, we wanted to know if you thought the organization should be held liable for any accusations that occurred before USA Swimming began. In our latest poll, 80 percent of you said no, while 20 percent said yes.
