LEN in mourning: TSC Member Tatiana Zhukova died

LEN has learnt with immense sadness that member of the Swimming Technical Committee Tatiana Zhukova has died in a tragic car accident.

Tatiana has been a highly appreciated member of the international swimming community, she has been appointed to the LEN TSC and to the same body in FINA in this current cycle. Even bigger the loss is for the Belarusian Swimming Federation where she served as General Secretary – the accident also claimed the life of Executive Director Jeanne Isaine.

As the obituary of the national federation reads, “the contribution of these women to the development of the Belarusian voyage cannot be overestimated, it is the result of great work, real pedagogical talent and the energy of remarkable people.”

In these tragic moments the LEN Family offers its deepest condolences for the families and friends of Tatiana Zhukova and Jeanne Isaine.
