Swimming: Chief coach stands down
Wednesday 30 September 1992
TERRY DENISON, the chief coach of the British swimming squad for the past four years, hopes that his refusal to continue in his position will prompt far-reaching changes in the sport.
The City of Leeds coach will not be seeking re-selection when his agreed four-year term is completed at the end of the year.
Denison was in charge of the British squad in Barcelona, where Nick Gillingham's solitary bronze medal represented Britain's worst Olympic performance for 20 years.
Denison argues that 'some fundamental changes' are needed to make Britain successful again. He said: 'I hope that by making it clear that I won't stand at the end of the year, I will force people to face up to this issue and seriously consider whether we should appoint somebody full-time.'
