We Fight for Iowa Swimming

Two quotes from a great read: Leaders Eat Last

These concepts epitomize why the greater swim community is so offended with the decisions from the Iowa Athletic Department.

The present and former Hawkeyes know Barta and Harreld continue to violate every aspect of what it means to be a leader.

  • "Leadership is about integrity, honesty and accountability. All components of trust.”
  • “If our leaders are to enjoy the trappings of their position in the hierarchy, then we expect them to offer us protection. The problem is, for many of the overpaid leaders, we know that they took the money and perks and didn’t offer protection to their people. In some cases, they even sacrificed their people to protect or boost their own interests. This is what so viscerally offends us. We only accuse them of greed and excess when we feel they have violated the very definition of what it means to be a leader.”
