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 “not 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.
