Here We Go Again – FINA Disregards High Temperature Rule In Open Water

Commentary by Brent Rutemiller. 

The swimming community should never forget the tragic death of USA Open Water swimmer Fran Crippen, who died in 2010 during an Open Water competition due to excessively warm water temperatures.

A FINA task force was established. Changes were made and new temperature rules were put into place.  Crippen’s tragic death alerted the swimming community that changes needed to be made regarding safety regulations for open water races. Following his death, FINA implemented rule OWS 5.5 stating that the water temperature cannot be below 16 degrees Celsius (60.8 F) and cannot be above 31 degrees Celsius (87.8 F).
