Close Camaraderie Of Competition

Close Camaraderie Of Competition

As more and more high-level swimmers compete in the open water, physicality continues to be the name of the game.

Experienced open water swimming referees understand how incidental contact frequently occurs. Objectively and properly officiating the physicality between two intensely focused competitors in the open water is extremely difficult.

But calls and non-calls must be made.
