To President of the Australian Olympic Federation Dear Sir As a leading sponsor of the Australian Olympic team I am writing this letter to you to express my disapproval in regard to the Australian Swimming Authoritys decision to disqualify one of our leading sportsmen Ian Thorpe out of the year 2004 Athens Olympics simply because he overbalanced on the starting blocks at the Olympic team trials in Sydney The decision is just simply unreasonable It seems that the Australian Swimming Authority is sacrificing Ian Thorpes opportunity to compete in the 2004 Athens to show how righteous the Authoritys decisions are So righteous that the Authority will eliminate our best hope just because he has accidentally fell in to the pool before starting breaking the ridiculous one false start and youre out rule Who doesnt make mistakes Knowing there is such a nonsensical rule Ian Thorpe would doubtlessly try his best effort to prevent making any mistakes during the trial and even during the competition More to this Ian Thorpe is a world class sportsman He is experienced and therefore it is unlikely he broke the rule deliberately Such severe punishment should not be given to someone who accidentally breaks the rule It is unfair to punish him if we think of the painstaking efforts that Ian Thorpe has put in for training for the past four years It will not only seize his opportunity to gain a medal for Australia in 2004 Athens it will also be a enormous setback in his swimming career which will also effect his performance in the future Perhaps the unwise one false start and youre out rule shouldnt be placed under the category of zero tolerance I hope that you will come to agree that this outrageous decision made by the Australian Swimming Authority is not favourable for Australia and I have faith that you will reconsider your decision
