On the heels of Katinka Hosszu’s call for professional swimmers to unionize, World Swimming Coaches Association (WSCA) executive director John Leonard is asking interested athletes to contact him and the WSCA.
Yesterday, Mr. Barelli answered some questions we had regarding Hosszu’s call for a pro swimmers’ union and weighed in on the consequences of the World Cup rules changes.
Hosszu is not the first swimmer to float the idea of an athlete’s union, but she is by far the highest-profile one to do so. Hosszu has a total of 17 World Championships to her name, along with 3 Olympic gold medals, 21 European Championships.
An overwhelming majority of SwimSwam voters disagreed with FINA’s new World Cup rules, which will limit each swimmer to 4 individual races per World Cup stop.
