Media protocol

Media Protocol

The media protocol has been designed to help

achieve an understanding between all media

and those representing British Swimming. It

aims to create opportunities for the media as

well as appreciate the commitments of athletes

and staff. This media protocol will be utilised

leading up to and during all international

competitions. The protocol recognises that

everybody is present at a major competition to

do a job – whether they are athletes, coaching

staff or the media. Each group experiences its

own pressure to deliver, however, consideration

of each other’s circumstances, roles and

responsibilities will help ensure everybody has a

successful and productive experience.

ACCESS TO THE NATIONAL PERFORMANCE

DIRECTOR DURING COMPETITION

Media requests in relation to the National Performance

Director should go through the Media Liaison. Those

wishing to put a question to the National Performance

Director should provide as much notice as possible so the

Media Liaison can identify a window of opportunity to

respond. If the National Performance Director is unable

to respond in person, the Media Liaison will pass on their

views. During the competition the National Performance

Director will only give views on the performances of British

athletes and the team as a whole. Due to the demands of

the job at hand, the National Performance Director’s time

will be limited so as much prior notice to any requests

would be greatly appreciated.

ACCESS TO BRITISH COACHES DURING

COMPETITION

After the final event of the day a coach or coaches with

relevance to that evening’s finals will be available to the

media at a location within the venue. This will be coordinated

through the Media Liaison. These coaches will

only speak on their athlete’s performance. Comments on

the overall team performance will only be given by the

National Performance Director.

ACCESS TO ATHLETES OR COACHING STAFF

DURING COMPETITION

Requests for interviews with athletes or team coaching

staff must go through the Media Liaison. Whereas media

deadlines will always be considered, these interviews

will be arranged at a time the athlete or coach can be

made available. This is obviously due to the demands of

the competition on time. Athletes and team coaches will

only comment on their relevant performances. Overall

comments will be provided by the National Performance

Director via the Media Liaison.

www.swimming.org IPC SWIMMING EUROPEAN CHAMPIONSHIPS 2011


Media protocol

Access to athletes and coaches will be limited to the

official mixed zone, press conferences or through prior

arrangements made via the Media Liaison. All athletes

will be encouraged to speak to the media, however, due

to the need to recover by ‘’swimming/warming down’’

immediately after an event, time in the mixed zone will

be limited and it is envisaged the media will collect at a

good vantage point to be informed as a group rather than

as individuals. The swimmers have between three to six

minutes from the time they’ve finished their race to get to

the swim down pool. Within this time there is a need to

service all areas of the mixed zone - broadcast and

print - fairly.

The swim down pool is off limits to all media as indicated

by accreditation. No member of the British Swimming

squad will be available at swim down. The Media Liaison

will try to obtain quotes from athletes if, for whatever

reason, access has been limited further. These will

hopefully be provided before swim-down or drug testing.

If it is not possible to meet these needs then interviews

may take place following warm-down. Where a swimmer

has an event the next morning, there will be no post

swimdown interviews that evening.

If an athlete has achieved a notable result their specific

coach will also be encouraged to make themselves

available to the media at the end of the session. The Media

Liaison or Team Manager will be present during interviews.

The Media Liaison and Team Manager will always consider

special requests made by the media.

When an athlete has finished their final event of the

championships they will be free to consider additional

media requests made via the Media Liaison. Efforts will be

made to meet these as long as they don’t impact on the

rest of the team.

MEDIA NOT PRESENT AT THE CHAMPIONSHIPS

Not all media will be accredited for international events

but the Media Liaison and Media Team in the UK will

try to look after all enquiries via phone or email. The

same protocols should be followed. Athletes, staff or the

National Performance Director should not be contacted

directly. Their time is limited and therefore the Media

Liaison will arrange for information to be forwarded at a

convenient moment.

British Swimming encourages the sport to be covered

by all media, present or not present. However, all media

should understand that priority has to be given to those

who are in attendance at the event. Efforts will be made to

meet all requests and British Swimming asks that protocol

be respected at all times.

MISCELLANEOUS

All media requests will be considered on their individual

merits and decisions made in the best interests of British

Swimming. Several requests for separate interviews at the

same time will be dealt with in order of deadlines. Media

with the tightest deadline will be dealt with first.

If photographers require access to members of the squad

for non-action shots away from the competition then all

requests should be made through the Media Liaison.

For all media interviews, athletes and staff will only wear

British Swimming kit supplied for the event by the team

sponsor apart from unbranded swimsuits.

All interviews will only involve representatives of the British

Swimming team. No persons outside of the team will be

allowed to contribute to an interview involving a British

Swimming squad member.

No team member or programme-supported athlete is

allowed to be part of any media team during camps or

competitions, or to disclose or discuss activities during

these events.

There will be no access to athletes or coaching staff at the

team hotel. It is requested that this privacy be respected.

All media enquiries should be made to the Media Liaison.

If unavailable the media should approach the Team

Manager. The Media Liaison and Team Manager must both

be aware of all media activity.

Athletes can only talk about their own performance,

coaches can only comment on athletes in their own

specific group and not the overall team performance, the

National Performance Director can talk on the overall team

and all matters. Support staff are unable to comment on

perfrormance.

Newcomer’s guide

Newcomer’s guide to swimming

Swimmers often talk using their own

abbreviations and words that do not apply to

the outside world.

Below is a simple glossary of the most frequent

terms used:

PB: Personal Best time

Splits: This is the time at each 50m turn. Swimmers will

monitor these to see how they paced a race.

Taper: A swimmer will ‘taper’ prior to any major

competition. What this means is that they will rest. They

will cut back the amount of training they do each day and

decrease the intensity also. A swimmer may swim over 12,

000m a day during heavy training, however they will swim

as little as a few hundred metres the day before an event.

Free: Freestyle or front crawl.

Breast: Breaststroke.

Fly: Butterfly.

Back: Backstroke.

I.M: Individual Medley (Butterfly, Backstroke, Breaststroke,

Freestyle). In a medley relay, the order is changed so that

backstroke is first. This addresses the fact that backstrokers

cannot do a dive to start a race. Four swimmers compete

in one of the following strokes in the following order;

backstroke, breaststroke, butterfly, freestyle.

Swim-down: A recovery exercise that takes place several

minutes after a swimmer completes their race.

They will swim at a low intensity in another pool in order to

rid the body of lactic acid, which would have accumulated

in the muscles after high-intensity swims.

Long Course: Long Course events are those held in a

50m pool.

Shaving-down: Most swimmers shave the hair from their

bodies for a big meet. Although they will remove almost

all of their body hair, the actual intention is to remove

the top layer of skin from the body. This increases the

sensitivity and “feel” for the water. Even though many

swimmers wear all-over body suits, shaving remains a key

psychological measure in getting prepared for a race.

The eight fastest swimmers from the heats will compete in

the final. The lane order for the finals is decided from times

in the heats or semi-finals. The fastest qualifier will swim

in lane 4, the second fastest in lane 5, third fastest in lane

3, fourth in lane 6, fifth in lane 2, sixth in lane 7, seventh

in lane 1 and eight in lane 8. Theoretically, this creates a

spearhead format in the race.

For the duration of the World Championships, the onestart

rule will apply. Should any swimmer perform a false

start they will be disqualified from the race. Any swimmer

who is moving before the start will be disqualified at the

end of the race. The start should go ahead regardless of

the disqualification.

Beginner’s guide

to classification

Beginner’s guide to classification

Swimming is the only sport that combines

the conditions of limb loss, cerebral palsy

(coordination and movement restrictions), spinal

cord injury (weakness or paralysis involving any

combination of the limbs) and other disabilities,

such as Dwarfism; major joint restriction

condition across classes.

Classes 1-10 are allocated to athletes with a physical

impairment.

Classes 11-13 are allocated to athletes with a visual

impairment.

The Prefix S to the Class denotes the class for Freestyle,

Backstroke and Butterfly.

The Prefix SB to the class denotes the class for

Breaststroke.

The Prefix SM to the class denotes the class for

Individual Medley.

The range is from the athletes with a more severe

impairment, S1, SB1, SM1, to those with a lesser

impairment, S10, SB9 and SM10.

In any one class some athletes may start with a dive or in

the water depending on their impairment. This is factored

in when classifying an athlete. The following examples are

only a guide - some conditions not mentioned here may

also fit the following classes.

FUNCTIONAL CLASSIFICATION SYSTE M

S1 SB1 SM1: Athletes in this class would usually be

wheelchair users and may have a higher dependency for

their every day needs. Examples: Athletes with very

severe coordination problems in all four limbs or have

no use of their legs, trunk, hands and minimal use of their

shoulders only.

Usually only swim on their back.

S2 SB1 SM2: Examples: The athlete is able to use their

arms with no use of their hands, legs or trunk or have

severe co-ordination problems in all four limbs.

S3 SB2 SM3: Examples: Athletes with reasonable arm

strokes but no use of their legs or trunk; athletes with

severe coordination problems in all four limbs and athletes

with severe limb loss to all four limbs.

S4 SB3 SM4: Examples: Athletes who use their arms and

have minimal weakness in their hands but have no use of

their trunk or legs; athletes with coordination problems

affecting all four limbs but predominantly in the legs;

athletes with limb loss to three limbs.

S5 SB4 SM5: Examples: Athletes with full use of their

arms and hands but no trunk or leg muscles; athletes with

moderate coordination problems.

S6 SB5 SM6: Examples: Athletes with full use of their

arms and hands with some trunk control but no useful leg

muscles; athletes with coordination problems (usually these

athletes walk); athletes with major limb loss of two limbs;

Achondroplasia (dwarfism < 130cm for women and 137cm

for men).

S7 SB6 SM7: Examples: Athletes with full use of their

arms and trunk with some leg function; coordination or

weakness problems on the same side of the body; major

limb loss of two limbs.

S8 SB7 SM8: Examples: Athletes with full use of their arms

and trunk with some leg function; limb loss of two limbs;

athletes with the use of one arm.

S9 SB8 SM9: Unless there is an underlying medical

condition usually all of these athletes will start out of the

water. Examples: Athletes with severe weakness in one

leg only; athletes with very slight coordination problems;

athletes with one limb loss.

www.swimming.org IPC SWIMMING EUROPEAN CHAMPIONSHIPS 2011


Beginner’s guide

to classification

S10 SB9 SM10: Examples: Athletes with very minimal

weakness affecting the legs; athletes with restriction of hip

joint movement; athletes with both feet deformed; athletes

with minor limb loss of part of a limb.

S14 SB14 SM14 swimmers with a Learning Disability

Swimmers must have an IQ of 75 or less to meet

the criteria

VISUALLY IMPAIRED CLASSES

S11 SB11 SM11: These athletes are unable to see at all

and are considered totally blind. They must wear blackened

goggles if they swim in this class. They will also require

someone to tap them when they are approaching a wall

for turning and finishing.

S12 SB12 SM12: These athletes can recognise the shape

of a hand and have some ability to see. There is a large

range of vision ability within this class.

S13 SB13 SM13: Athletes who are the most sighted but

are legally considered to be blind.
