If you take a trip to your pool, you may want to think twice before pulling out your nail polish. From now on, Australian, US and Japanese competitive swimmers could face a lifetime ban from the sport if they dye their hair or have brightly decorated nails. Why?
Well officials say, "We have had many recent controversies with marijuana in sport and at universities, and this is about swimming taking a stand on its own initiative." Riiiight.
Drugs. Nail Polish. Not really in the same league now are they? What do you think? Is this standard necessary or is it a step too far?
