Paralympic swimming blow for Swansea

The Wales National Pool will no longer be the base for elite Paralympic swimmers, the sport's governing body has announced.

British Swimming will relocate athletes to Manchester in a move to centralise training after what was seen as a poor performance at London 2012.

The Swansea pool board has asked the Welsh and UK governments, along with UK Sport, to get the decision reversed.
