Medical Information Update 

Received from Swimming NZ 15/12/2016

We have had a number of queries surrounding the qualifying criteria of the Individual Medley for the Division II Competition. It has been made apparent to us that there are swimmers with medical conditions such as knee problems that prevent them from doing certain strokes that would allow them to gain an IM Qualifying time to attend Division II Competition. It has been decided by the Events Advisory Committee that a dispensation will be considered for swimmers that are faced by this situation if they can provide a medical certificate stating that they are not able to perform a certain stroke, preventing them from gaining the IM time needed to qualify for Division II Competition. This is not for swimmers with short term injuries but is for swimmers with a medical condition that prevents them from performing a stroke of the IM.


Also from the 1st January 2017 for all national meets, swimmers with strapping must provide documentation from a relevant registered health practitioner or physiotherapist and be reviewed by the Meet Director prior to swimming. Any swimmers without such documentation will not be permitted to swim.
