U.S. group seeks change after Crippen’s death
Without assistance or cooperation from the world governing body, USA Swimming is pressing forward with proposals that would place limits on water temperatures and require adequate rescue personnel and other safety improvements at open-water meets after the death of American star Fran Crippen.
A five-member panel headed by former International Olympic Committee vice president Dick Pound released its report Wednesday, though it couldn’t address exactly what happened to the former University of Virginia standout during a 10-kilometer race in the United Arab Emirates on Oct. 23.
That’s because FINA, which governs the sport around the world, denied repeated requests for any information related to Crippen’s death.
