Markus Rogan to help Austrian swim federation amid crisis


Three-time Olympian Markus Rogan has stepped forward to help rebuild the Austrian swim federation following a financial scandal.

The OSV is facing claims for compensation totaling nearly 580,000 euros ($628,000) after long-term misappropriation of funds by former officials. According to the federation general secretary, Thomas Unger, an investigation into the misused subsidies is ongoing.

Rogan tells Austrian broadcaster ORF on Sunday he has become an adviser to the new OSV executive committee as “it’s a historical chance. We are so deep in (trouble) that it can’t get worse.”
