Nanny's swimming police have been on patrol again. This time they have decided that Roland Grimm, a man who has swum (or is it swam?) in more swimming pools than I've had gin and tonics (and that's saying something!), is inappropriately dressed.
Goggles to you!
He has a special set of goggles that stops water going up his nose, with a single eye piece which does not press against his face.
The Health and Safety Gestapo at his leisure centre in Swiss Cottage (where he has swum/swam for 30 years) have banned his goggles.
Centre manager Gary Dark said:
"Non-shatterproof panels in enclosed environments can cause facial injury on impact with pool surfaces or other bathers and may pose a further hazard in relation to broken glass remaining on the pool floor.
Full face masks that cover the nose can also cause breathing difficulties if water is swallowed and may restrict vision which can cause an accident."
One small point, it seems that the goggles are not glass but plastic. Isn't this ban a wee bit excessive?
I know that there are a number of regulars here who are keen swimmers, what's your take on this?
