SwimVortex brings its current series on Safe Sport to a conclusion with a wrap of coverage and some observations from the trail of asking many questions, getting too few answers and reading conjecture and supposition that raise more questions not just about those who knew enough to have done far more than they did to prevent abuse but about those failing to join dots inconvenient to their own agendas in good to purported efforts to get to the truth. In the mix some great work, great outcomes. Yes, deal with the sexual abuse cases put in place all the measures that stack up to "never again". But there is a bigger picture and a fine chance to shift something that has needed shifting for a long time: hire a conference room, gets swimmers, coaches their lawyers and thinkers to agree to be there. Lock the doors and let the wrangling begin. In that room, cover every aspect of all the things FINA never wants to face and never does face. What do they find impossible: reconciliation and dealing with a past they have very good reason to leave behind. Where do they find strength: in the places where they find you divided, so much so that the FINA director manages, without breaking down in hysterical laughter before being carted off in a straitjacket, to say that the international federation shows clear moral leadership. Pour scorn on the very notion, then get the job done.
