Craig Lord and team move on to


On April 25, Craig Lord and team officially moved on to, in their own words because of the estate after SwimNews founder Nick Thierry being unsettled:

At the time Nick passed away in October last year after suffering a stroke, he had been looking forward to seeing the latest plans for a new look SwimNews on a modern platform. Sadly, Nick did not see our plans come to fruition. Though Nick left his swimming assets to the team closest to him at SwimNews, his estate is yet to be settled, such is the process of probate. We can wait no longer to forge ahead with the new world we are creating.

The new site focuses on pretty much the same things, news and world rankings:

Our new platform is the sequel for our coverage at SwimNews based on the plans Craigh Lord, Editor of SwimVortex, had been working on with SwimNews founder and proprietor Nick Thierry and our technical team at the time of his passing in Autumn 2012.
