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 unable to respond in person the media manager will pass on their views during the competition the national performance director and head coach 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 and head coach s time will be limited so as much prior notice to any requests would be greatly appreciated 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 head coach or national performance director via the media manager access to athletes and coaches will be limited to the official mixed zone press conferences or through prior arrangements made via the media manager 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 manager 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 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 manager these coaches will only speak on their athlete s performance comments on the overall team performance will only be given by the head coach or national performance director access to the national performance director and head coach during competition media requests in relation to the national performance director and head coach should go through the media manager those wishing to put a question to the national performance director and head coach should provide as much notice as possible so the media manager can identify a window of opportunity to respond if the national performance director and head coach is access to athletes or coaching staff during competition requests for interviews with athletes or team coaching staff must go through the media manager whereas media deadlines will always be considered these interviews will be arranged at a time the athlete or coach can be www.swimming.org 30th len european championships ­ media protocol >

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 www.swimming.org 30th len european championships ­ newcomer s guide >
