A Dapto mum who was not allowed to swim at Port Kembla Olympic Pool because she was wearing too much clothing for the lifeguard’s liking has lodged a complaint with Wollongong council, citing discrimination.

Body-conscious Katherine Pulo wore a rash vest and a stretchy, lightweight dress as she approached the pool with her two sons about 11.45am yesterday.

She told the Mercury she was stopped by a council lifeguard who told her: “I can only let Muslims in the pool in dresses.”
