A Dimond High School (Anchorage, Alaska) swimmer touched the wall before any of her opponents in the 100-meter freestyle.
It was the 17-year-old’s second race of the meet. She had won the 200 IM to open her day, and would later compete in two more races.But as Annette Rohde, an official working the meet, prepared for the teen to receive the victory, she saw the swimmer had been disqualified.
The teenage swimmer was disqualified due to what was described as a uniform violation. A female referee told Rohde her the bottom of the girl’s suit “was so far up I could see butt cheek touching butt cheek.”
