A ‘curvier’ high school swimmer won — only to be disqualified because of a ‘ suit wedgie’. Over the years, the conservative one-piece swimsuits traditionally worn by competitive female swimmers have been phased out in favor of a higher -cut style that has less fabric and is more hydrodynamic

Willis' suit reportedly fit all these requirements, and she had worn the same suit at three prior meets this season without issue. However, the referee claimed the suit exposed too much of her buttocks.

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.

Man charged after NSW boy's death

Man charged after NSW boy's death A man has been charged with manslaughter after a 12-year-old Sydney boy was fatally hit by a car on his way to school. Emergency services were called to Forest Road in Hurstville on Friday morning after the Sydney Technical High School student was struck during the busy morning drop off. The boy was trapped under a Toyota Corolla - outside the nearby Hurstville Public School - before witnesses helped free him and began performing CPR. He was taken to Sydney Children's Hospital but was pronounced dead on arrival, NSW Police said in a statement.

The top-ranked 17-year-old swimmer , who is expected to compete at the collegiate level in the future, was the only athlete disqualified at the meet, despite wearing the same swimsuit as her teammates.

After winning at a swim meet, a high school swimmer in Alaska was disqualified over a "wardrobe violation" for showing too much skin — even though she wore the same swimsuit as every other girl on the team, and had done so at previous competitions, CBS affiliate KTVA-TV reports.

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.

Lamgford wrote that the 'modesty rule' and its enforcement has led young swimmers, especially girls, to feel "needlessly self-conscious" and is designed to police their bodies, not their uniforms.

A top high school swimmer in Alaska was disqualified after winning a race when a referee deemed her official school swimsuit too revealing.

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.
