The president of Poland’s swimming federation (PZP) has apologised after six athletes were sent home from the Tokyo Games due to an administrative error.
Poland have sent six swimmers home from the Tokyo Olympics after selecting too many by mistake. Poland initially picked 23 athletes but had to cut to17 based on world governing body FINA’s qualifying rules. Someone needs to be held accountable.
What people are saying?
Engo Aw so sad. Imagine working that hard, achieving that dream then having it snatched away? 3 years guys. My fingers are crossed for you all to get back there.
Bhargav Kesavan I feel sorry for those six athletes. What a way to give them what they deserve and snatch it away from them!
Thomas Barringer There’s a really good tasteless joke here But I will refrain. I do feel sorry for those Polish athletes whose Olympic dreams are being dashed through no fault of their own.
