A query has arisen recently regarding the number of manufacturers’ logos that are permitted on a swimsuit.
An amendment to the bylaw was made in 2011 and FINA have confirmed that this was omitted from the current handbook as a result of an error by the printers.
The FINA website will shortly be updated but for ease of reference the previous wording was:
BL 7.1.1 Swimsuits:
• One (1) manufacturer’s logo of a maximum size of 30 square centimetres when worn. Where one-piece body suits are used, two (2) logos of the manufacturer shall be permitted, one above the waist and one below the waist of a maximum size of 30 square centimetres each when worn. These two (2) logos of the manufacturer shall not be placed immediately adjacent to each other. Where two-piece body suits are used, the two (2) logos of the manufacturer shall be placed on one part each.
