Actively seeking to avoid the kind of doping scandal engulfing track and field, USA Swimming is teaming up with the man who brought down Lance Armstrong.

U.S. Anti-Doping Agency CEO Travis Tygart will join former USA Swimming president Jim Wood for a meeting with FINA executive director Cornel Marculescu in Lausanne, Switzerland, next month to check in on the anti-doping efforts of the sport's governing body.

USA Swimming executive director Chuck Wielgus says "this is an effort to see if we can understand what's going on and maybe why certain decisions were made the way they were."
