Update on Clarification of Rules for Awarding Medals

Please read the following update on rules for awarding medals at the Hertfordshire County Championships 2012 The Organiser, Promoter, Meet Director and Principle Referee have decided between them to override the -1 rule in relation to medals at this years County Championship.

This issue will be taken to the next Swimming Committee meeting for a proposal to be drafted and sent to the Management Board to remove this rule in future years. We believe swimmers in the following events will have been affected by this rule and would ask any swimmer who feels they have been affected to go to the medal desk this weekend to check if they are now entitled to a medal.

Event 1 800m Free Women 3 x 11yrs
Event 16 200m Fly Women 2 x 10yrs – Silver medal given out
Event 28 200m Free Men 2 x 9yrs
Event 34 200m Fly Men 3 x 10yrs
Event 45 400m IM Women 3 x 10yrs  

We hope people will appreciate the decision to overturn this rule.
