The All-Russian Swimming Federation (VFTU) has launched an appeal on the possibility of Russians participating in water sports in Asian tournaments, a member of the Bureau of the International Swimming Federation (FINA) told . Vladimir Salnikov .
The Russians have been suspended from participating in competitions under the auspices of FINA amid the situation in Ukraine.
– We have launched a call on the possible performances of our athletes in all water sports during the Asian tournaments. This appeal was sent to the Asian federation. In fact, we already expressed this when we talked about the possibility of playing in Asia, but so far this request is really about the participation in Asian tournaments, not a transfer. The request was made by the All-Russian Swimming Federation, as it is the FINA affiliate of all our water sports.
We are waiting for a response and then we will consider all possibilities,” Salnikov said.
