  JILL STIDIVER
Huge congratulations to Jill Stidiver the County’s Disability Swimming Manager who last night was announced as the East Midland’s BBC Sports Personality of the Year – Unsung Hero.  This award is in recognition of Jill’s near 60 years dedication to helping children with special needs learn to swim and succeed in and out of the pool.  This award is very well deserved.

We wish Jill good luck as she attends the main BBC Sports Personality Award in Glasgow in December where the overall Unsung Hero will be announced from all the regional winners.  The County will be rooting for you Jill!

19 Jan   RULES AROUND 'SEPARATED HANDS'
British Swimming have now received official notification of the statement of the FINA TSC:

Related to the new FINA Rules about separated hands as mentioned in SW 7.6 (Breaststroke) and SW 8.4 (Butterfly) please note the statement of the FINA TSC as agreed at the FINA TSC at the Meeting in Bangkok (THA) on 6 & 7 December 2013:
”Separated” means that the hands cannot be stacked one on top of the other. It is not necessary to see space between the hands. Incidental contact at the fingers is not a concern.

An image illustrating this interpretation can be found on the Officials page under Useful Documents and Links.
