Decision to disqualify teen swimmer over swimsuit is overturned
Breckynn Willis was disqualified for a wardrobe violation last Friday after winning the 100 meter freestyle event at her Dimond High School home swim meet in Anchorage, Alaska.
Guidelines say the suits must ‘be worn in the appropriate size as dictated by that manufacturer’s specifications for the athlete’s body type and shall remain unaltered. Boys shall wear suits which cover the buttocks, and girls shall wear suits which cover the buttocks and breasts.’

Sandy Searcy, Director of Sports for the NFHS, said: ‘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.’
I’m not saying it was racist… but, oh hell yes, I am saying it was racist.

‘The disqualified athlete was wearing the approved, school-issued suit during the race. In the first three meets this year, the Dimond swim team has had no disqualifications related to the wear of the swim uniform.
