FINA Extraordinary General Congress 19 Jun 2022
|Duration||3 20 Minutes 45 Seconds|
|Description||FINA Member Federations voted in support of a new FINA policy on gender inclusion presented at the FINA Extraordinary General Congress 2022. The vote, which was 71.5% in favour of the new policy, took place after Congress heard speeches from representatives of a working group that was set up in November 2021. This working group consisted of three specialist groups - an athlete group, a science and medicine group, and a legal and human rights group. After analysing the conclusions of these groups, FINA developed a new policy that will apply at all FINA events. The policy will also be followed for world record ratification, wherever the competition took place. The full FINA gender inclusion policy can be found at https://bit.ly/3y3Xy2R Included in the policy are proposals for an open competition category. FINA will establish a new working group that will spend the next six months looking at the most effective ways to set up this new category. The new FINA gender inclusion policy comes into effect on 20 June 2022.|
