Dear Carifta Judges

As we begin the countdown to Carifta 2010 we have been looking at the rules as outlined in the FINA 2009-2013 handbook. To bring you up to par with everyone else here are the rules of the day.

SWIMMING RULE OF THE DAY

Backstroke
SW 6.3

Some part of the swimmer must break the surface of the water throughout the race. It is permissible for the swimmer to be completely submerged during the turn, at the finish and for a distance of not more than 15 metres after the start and each turn. By that point the head must have broken the surface.
