(SNO) — The Saint Lucia Amateur Swimming Association is no more.
World governing body, FINA, recently requested that all national associations affiliated to FINA should amend their name to include the word “aquatics” thus being fully responsible for all water sports governed by FINA, i.e. swimming, water polo, artistic swimming and open water.
According to a release by the local national association: “At a congress held on 13th December, 2018 in Hangzhou, (China), and in accordance with the FINA Rule C7.4, the FINA Bureau considered the request made by Saint Lucia for the change of name from Saint Lucia Amateur Swimming Association to SAINT LUCIA AQUATICS FEDERATION. The approval was granted and signed by Cornel Marculescu, FINA Executive Director.”
The Saint Lucia Aquatics Federation has already changed its logo, and will now have to undergo the task of re-branding its social media and web presence, as well as physical assets, such as uniforms and equipment.
