ANCHORAGE (KTUU) - A disqualification of a state championship swimmer during a high school swim meet in Anchorage Friday has turned into a tense dispute over the fit of athletes' swimsuits . Athletes Breckynn Willis and Dreamer Kowatch, sisters, pose with their athletic trainer

Lauren Langford, a lifelong swimmer and high school swim coach, shared the story on Medium, explaining this isn't the first time Willis has been targeted.

According to Langford, a team parent took photos of Willis' backside in her swimsuit without her knowledge or consent last year, then emailed the images out "as evidence that [Willis'] attire is immoral."

Willis' sisters have also been targeted for their swim attire, with Langford suggesting the mixed-race teens are being singled out for their curvier, fuller figures.

In fact, the referee who disqualified Willis had previously criticised her younger sister and fellow swimmer, Dreamer Kowatch, for the fit of her own swimsuit.

The girls' mother, Meagan Kowatch, wants Willis' victory reinstated and her disqualification overturned, and has requested the referee in question is kept away from her daughters' races.

Though there is currently an investigation underway into the circumstances of Willis' disqualification, Kowatch has yet to hear the outcome.

"If we find that this was an error in judgment by an official, we are going to definitely ensure that there are steps in place so that it doesn't happen again," Kersten Johnson-Struempler, Senior Director of Secondary Education for the Anchorage School District, told KTUU.

There are concerns that the disqualification has already had a major impact on the teen, and demonstrates sexism in the competitive swim environment.

Yet officials like Sandy Searcy, Director of Sports for the National Federation of State High School Associations, disagree.

"What we're attempting to do is try to define the parameters of the problem that quite frankly has been brought to us by adults who are uncomfortable being on deck with young men and young ladies who are not appropriately covered," she said.

Searcy's suggestion that adult referees are "uncomfortable" around teen swimmers is concerning and has raised questions over the sexualisation of minors simply participating in their sport.

"If you do not like the way that swimsuits fit on these girls' bodies then don't look; they are minors, children, and no one should be looking at them anyway," Langford wrote.

Langford added the 'modesty rule' needs rethinking as it is currently vague, and suggested that all swimsuits that are not thong or g-string styles should be permitted.
