Read BBC

British Swimming’s head coach has called for the ending of selection trials at Sheffield’s Ponds Forge after claiming the pool is “too fast”.

Bill Furniss said he wanted qualifying events for the Olympics and other competitions switched to other venues.

His comments came after the Great Britain team won just one medal at the World Championships in Barcelona.
