游泳比赛,泳衣暴露也算犯规?!

大家都知道,游泳运动员的泳衣都是剪裁合身、用料讲究的。泳衣质量或多或少会影响到游泳选手的表现。为了减少与水的摩擦力,有些款式的泳衣,暴露皮肤的面积较大,那也是合理之中。

不过,美国阿拉斯加州的17岁高中生游泳运动员布雷肯·威利斯(Breckynn Willis),却被指责泳衣过于“暴露”,而在获胜后被裁判取消资格。裁判的理由是,她看到该学生游泳时“屁股碰到屁股”(butt cheek touching butt cheek)。而这件游泳衣是学校游泳队提供的。

A high school swimmer in Alaska had her 100-meter freestyle victory overturned after a referee determined she committed a "uniform violation" when her swimsuit revealed too much of her backside.

阿拉斯加一名高中游泳运动员在100米自由泳比赛中获胜,却由于她的泳衣暴露了太多的臀部,裁判判定她违反了“制服规定”,她的胜利被推翻了。

According to the Anchorage Daily News, the swimmer from Dimond High School competed in four events at the meet on Friday, but was disqualified in only one. A meet official said the referee who disqualified the girl said she could see "butt cheek touching butt cheek."

据《安克雷奇新闻日报》报道,这位来自戴蒙德高中的游泳运动员在上周五的比赛中参加了四项比赛,但只有一项被取消了资格。一名比赛的官员表示,取消这名女孩比赛资格的裁判说,她看到女孩游泳时能“屁股碰屁股”。

安克雷奇学区本周二表示,他们将努力扭转该名学生被取消资格的情况,以及取消这名裁判的资格。

It said the referee's decision was “targeted based solely on how a standard, school-issued uniform happened to fit the shape of her body.”

声明称,裁判的决定“仅仅是基于一件标准的校服如何碰巧适合她的体型。”

“We cannot tolerate discrimination of any kind, and certainly not based on body shape,” the district said in a statement to the newspaper.

“我们不能容忍任何形式的歧视,当然更不能容忍基于体型(的歧视),”该学区在给《安克雷奇新闻日报》的一份声明中说。

根据美国高中协会联合会的规定,男生必须遮住臀部,女生必须遮住臀部和胸部。

School district officials said the disqualified swimmer was wearing an "approved, school-issued suit" during the meet.

学区官员表示,这名被取消资格的游泳运动员在比赛中穿着“经批准的学校发放的游泳衣”。

The school district also vowed to try to change that rule, saying it was "ambiguous and allows the potential for bias."

该学区还誓言要尝试改变这一规定,称其“模棱两可,可能存在偏见”。

学区很快就对裁判的裁决提出了上诉。

与此同时,那名裁判的决定也遭到了该地区另一名教练的抨击。

"This young lady and her sisters are being targeted not for the way they wear their suits but for the way those suits fit their curvier, fuller figured bodies," West High coach Lauren Langford wrote in a blog post Monday.

“这名女孩和她的姐妹们之所以成为攻击目标,不是因为她们穿衣的方式,而是因为这些泳衣适合她们更丰满、更有曲线的身材,”West High的教练劳伦·兰福德周一在一篇博客中写道。

"If lots of girls are wearing them, and they’re cut in a way that is 'immodest,' why has only one swimmer been disqualified?"

“如果很多女孩都穿着这些泳衣,而且这些泳衣的剪裁‘不得体’,为什么只有一名游泳运动员被取消资格?”

学区提出上诉后,阿拉斯加学校活动协会(Alaska School Activities Association)站在了学区一边。

The school district appealed the ruling, and the Alaska School Activities Association sided with the district, finding that rules require that the coach be notified of illegal attire before the heat or dive — and in this case, that did not happen.

学区对裁决提出上诉,阿拉斯加学校活动协会站在了学区一边,发现规定要求在比赛或入水前,教练应被告知着装不合法——而在本案中,这种情况没有发生。

"All evidence gathered, including the statement provided by the official, indicated the official did not notify the coach prior to disqualifying the student," the Alaska School Activities Association said in a statement.

阿拉斯加学校活动协会在一份声明中说:“所有收集到的证据,包括这名官员提供的声明,都表明这名官员在取消这名学生的资格之前没有通知她的教练。”

The disqualification was made in error and is being overturned, it said, and “all team and individual points shall be restored to both the individual swimmer and the Dimond High School Swim team."

声明说,这一取消资格的决定是错误的,并正在被驳回,“所有团队和个人积分,都将恢复给她本人和她所在的戴蒙德高中游泳队。”
