Six swimmers have been sent home from Poland’s swimming squad after the country selected too many of them.
Those sent home are Alicja Tchorz, Bartosz Piszczorowicz, Aleksandra Polanska, Mateusz Chowaniec, Dominika Kossakowska and Jan Holub.
The president of Poland’s swimming federation has since then apologized for the error. He claimed they made mistake because they wanted as many swimmers as possible to participate.
“I express great regret, sadness and bitterness about the situation related to the qualification of our swimmers for the Olympic Games in Tokyo,” Slominski said in a statement.
“Such a situation should not take place, and the reaction of the swimmers, their emotions, the attack on the Polish Swimming Federation is understandable to me and justified.”
