A bathing suit decency rule that disqualified an Alaska high school swimmer from a race has been eliminated.
KTVA reports the board of directors of the Alaska School Activities Association voted to remove penalties for swim uniforms that officials deemed â€œnot of decent appearance.”
In September, a 17-year-old swimmer from Dimond High School in Anchorage was disqualified after winning her race because an event judge ruled that her school-issued swimsuit did not meet modesty requirements.
The swimmer’s win was ultimately reinstated.
