Kristen Katchadourian started this petition to International Swimming Federation and

Swim Caps from Soul Cap, which are made for Black people with Natural hair, have been banned from the Olympics stating that the caps did not fit “the natural form of the head” and to their “best knowledge the athletes competing at the international events never used, neither require … caps of such size and configuration”.

Natural hair is much different from other types of hair, getting much dryer and needing greater care. These caps help those with hair that does not fit nor is best protected with the types of caps the International Swimming Federation deems acceptable. 

This is a huge disappointment to Black swimmers everywhere. Sign this petition to let the International Swimming Federation know of this injustice and to allow Soul Cap caps.
