Swansea swimmer Jazz Carlin has admitted she cried when coach Bud McAllister told his protégé he was leaving for a new role in Australia.

Carlin has worked with the American guru for the last seven years in Swansea but McAllister will now move to Perth for a new challenge next month.

McAllister told Carlin the news on Sunday and the 23-year-old revealed she was overcome by emotion.

“It is upsetting that Bud will not be here anymore and I cried when he told me,” said Carlin.

“It’s difficult because I came to Swansea when I was 16 and just a young girl.

“Now I am 23 and I have been with him seven years.

“But it’s an exciting new job for him and I wish him well.”
