The Alaska School Activities Association has decided to overturn the disqualification of a Dimond High School swimmer who the Anchorage School District said was targeted during a meet last week.
ASD said in a release Tuesday it found the swimmer was singled-out based on how a school-issued uniform happened to fit the shape of her body.
"We cannot tolerate discrimination of any kind, and certainly not based on body shape," the district said. "This disqualification was heavy-handed and unnecessary."
