March 29, 2020— With just about every other swimmer around the world, 27-year-old Chad Le Clos of South Africa saw his Olympic preparation hurriedly disrupted with the unfolding of the coronavirus (COVID-19) global pandemic.

All athletes and coaches had roughly 36 hours to leave the country, knocking the original 6-7 week training plan completely off course. With a few days’ worth of reflection und ...

SWIMMING WORLD NEWS
March 19, 2020— This is the Swim Poll of the Week for Thursday, March 19, 2020, sponsored by Strechcordz Swim Training Products . In our last poll, we wanted to know: Should Sun Yang receive a lesser sentence in exchange for cooperation with doctors and FINA reps? Chinese swimming superstar was handed an eight-year ban on February 28 for tampering with a doping sample in September 2018. FINA let him off the hook and allowed him to compete at the 2019 World Championships, where he was met with jeers and protests on the podium for the medals he won. But now his career is effectively over.
