It was a rough week for USA Swimming and the sport in general. This is not the kind of news this journalist enjoys reporting on, but it’s a pretty big part of the swimming scene these days. This is SwimSwam News for Friday September 21st.
Update: USA Swimming contacted Tom Ugast after this interview to clarify that they reached out to Curl Burke, via email, on July 24th, 2012. That’s the day Amy Shipley’s article on Rick Curl was published in the Washington Post, and a year and three months after USA Swimming started their investigation according to the timeline they released last week.
