High school swimming champion disqualified over swimsuit "modesty rule"

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — A race judge at an Alaska high school swim meet disqualified a state champion swimmer after concluding that that her team-issued swimsuit did not meet modesty requirements.


The decision outraged a competing coach and the Anchorage School District announced it will review the decision that disqualified the 17-year-old Dimond High School swimmer from a heat victory at a meet Friday, Anchorage television station KTUU reported .


"If we find that this was an error in judgment by an official, we are going to definitely ensure that there are steps in place so that it doesn't happen again," said Kersten Johnson-Struempler, the district's senior director of secondary education.


The district on Monday confirmed that the swimsuit was considered to be in compliance with national rules and had been used without incident at three prior meets.


The National Federation of State High School Associations in August notified high school coaches of a rule change that allows for disqualification of an athlete if a uniform is not within guidelines.


"There is a growing trend in high school swimming and diving of athletes wearing training and competitive suits in a manner that contradicts with the intention of their original design and manufacture," NFHS executive director Karissa Niehoff wrote in a memo. "Specifically, suits are being worn in such a way as to expose the athlete's buttocks. This issue is not gender-specific and is occurring in various states across the country."


The Alaska School Activities Association on its website published the NHFS letter outlining the "modesty rule." The association also published an illustration showing inappropriate suit coverage. Local sporting associations have some flexibility to determine implementation according to community standards.


West High School swim coach Lauren Langford over the weekend published an online account of the disqualification. Langford said the Dimond student-athlete was punished for her athletic physique, a combination of genetics and years of training to gain strength and speed, she said.


"The rest of her team was wearing the same uniform, and she was the only one disqualified," Langford said. "It is my opinion that she has been targeted and singled out over the course of the last year."


The cut of most competitive suits is not in compliance with the rule, Langford said, noting a V-shape angle on the backside of women's competitive suits sold by most manufacturers.


"Before these suits even get on an athlete's body, the cut of them isn't in compliance with the modesty rule," Langford said.


Calls and emails to the referee who made the disqualification were not returned.


The goal is not to have officials focus on the backsides of male or female swimmers but to provide guidance for compliance, said Sandy Searcy, director of sports for the National Federation of State High School Associations.


"What we're attempting to do is try to define the parameters of the problem that quite frankly has been brought to us by adults who are uncomfortable being on deck with young men and young ladies who are not appropriately covered," Searcy said by phone from Indiana.


Langford said the renewed emphasis on modesty is well-intended but has gotten out of hand, especially when the rule is vague.


"It does not state that that coverage of the buttocks needs to be full coverage," Langford said. "That's something that we have gotten carried away with. If we are going to police this rule and if it's not a thong or a G-string, then it is in compliance."


Tennis champion and longtime women's rights activist Billie Jean King criticized the decision to disqualify the swimmer.


King tweeted Tuesday: "One of Alaska's top swimmers who had just won her race was disqualified by a ref because of how her school-issued swimsuit fit her body. The constant policing of women's bodies is offensive, sexist, and wrong. This must end."
