Swimming: Rebecca Adlington sparks talks
Thursday 06 December 2012
Rebecca Adlington and British Swimming's chief executive, David Sparkes, have held talks following the dual Olympic champion's criticisms of the governing body.
Adlington accused British Swimming of "ignoring" the swimmers following the inquest into Great Britain's performance at London 2012 and spoke with Sparkes on the phone, with a further meeting involving senior swimmers set for the new year.
A British Swimming statement read: "A healthy debate took place where Sparkes listened to and responded to the issues raised by Becky in the media this week.
"Sparkes will now meet the British Swimming athlete leadership group next month to update on actions from the report and to ensure enhanced two-way communication with the group."
