If the CAS can over-rule a selection policy to allow someone to compete because they have met FINA conditions but not their country's, chaos would surely ensue with people challenging the right of country's to select at trials rather than fastest qualifiers at any qualifying competition and all sorts.
Sorry, just saying.
Not sure this is any different to BS altering their Nationals selection policy to allow targeted swimmer to enter targeted events.
Actually given the Policy is obviously flawed and unfair being over-ruled is the only solution.
