Poland would not have been able to crush them any more when it came to their Olympic swimming team.
Poland has sent 23 innovators to the Tokyo Summer Games this year. However, six swimmers had to be sent home because they did not qualify based on FINA’s qualification rules.
Polish swimming federation I should apologize for the epic mistake in a statement. PZP President Pawel Slominski said:
“We express great regret, sadness and bitterness at the situation in relation to the qualification of our swimmers for the Tokyo Olympics. Such a situation should not happen, and the reaction of the swimmers, their emotions, the attack to Polish Swimming. The Federation is understood by me and justified. “
Alicja Tchorz, Bartosz Piszczorowicz, Aleksandra Polanska, Mateusz Chowaniec, Dominika Kossakowska and Jan Holub have all been identified as batsmen sent home by the Olympics.
“I am deeply shocked by what has happened and it is an absurd situation for me that should never have happened. In fact, I hope to wake up from this SORROW eventually! In a word, I am terribly bitter and sorry that, because of incompetent people of PZP, both in Poland and not the capital of Japan, ”Chowaniec wrote on Instagram (according to Google Translate).
Tchorz was playing too on Facebook (translation with Google Translate):
“Imagine dedicating 5 years of your life and striving for the next principle to the most important sporting event, giving up a revolutionary training, giving up your private life and work, sacrificing your family, and so on. Your dedication results in a total flop.Six days before the grand finale, it turns out that you have been stripped of your dreams due to the incompetence of third parties.It is difficult to gather my thoughts, and we have several hours left to pack my suitcase “.
It’s hard to imagine a bigger or more damaging mistake coming from a country’s Olympic administration. What a tremendous fate for the swimmers who were sent home after they had high hopes.
