British Swimming chiefs Spice and Furniss promise to make changes after Worlds



British Swimming’s national performance director Chris Spice and head coach Bill Furniss insist they can make the changes required to win medals.

The team claimed just one medal at the recent World Championships in Barcelona – a 50m freestyle bronze for Francesca Halsall.

It was GB’s lowest medals tally since the 1998 Worlds in Perth, Australia.

Furniss said: “It’s been disappointing because we came here expecting to do much better than we have.”

GB finished level with Finland and Trinidad & Tobago,  20th in the medal table in Barcelona.
