Deal secures elite swimming future in Swansea


Read BBC News

Elite swimming in Swansea had only been guaranteed until this summer’s Glasgow Commonwealth Games.

Budget cuts following a poor London 2012 by Britain’s swimmers meant that British Swimming removed Swansea’s status and funding as an Olympic and Paralympic training centre.

But now elite swimming will continue and it is hoped top athletes will stay.
