I just read on the meet registration form that FINA may not recognize times swum at the IGLA meet at U of Md for inclusion in FINA Top Ten or FINA records. Seems pretty bogus for a big international meet in a first rate pool. Apparently, USMS is working with FINA. What's FINA's basis for refusing to honor times? It's run by IGLA? Is IGLA not a USMS equivalent governing body? Seems like a very non-PC blunder ... would definitely piss off a lot of folks.
