There’s a high school swimming controversy in Alaska after a state swimming champion had a win taken away – because she had a wedgie.

Anchorage School District officials disqualified the girl, a 17-year-old state champion, for violating modesty requirements due to a ‘suit wedgie’ which did not fully cover her buttocks. But girl’s suit was a school-issued uniform, just like her teammates wore.

One coach said the swimmer is being punished for her athletic physique and that most competitive swimsuits don’t cover the buttocks.  The school says it’s investigating the situation.
