Swimming star Jazz Carlin has revealed the backroom support she receives in Wales persuaded her to stay in Swansea.
The Swansea pool lost its Intensive Training Centres (ITC) status at the end of last year from British Swimming.
Carlin watched former training partners Jemma Lowe and Georgia Davies relocate to Bath and Loughborough respectively.
But the double Commonwealth Games medallist decided to stay in Wales with coach Bud McAllister after enjoying a rejuvenated 2013.
