National Centre for Swimming
Team Bath is home to one of just two of British Swimming’s National Centres for Swimming.
The network of centres was created by British Swimming to provide athletes with a fully integrated training programme at each location and provide a daily world-class training environment for swimming development, offering a full range of pool and land-based facilities.
The centre at the University of Bath is led by David McNulty under whom London 2012 Olympic silver medallist Michael Jamieson, and Rio 2016 Olympic medallists Jazz Carlin, Siobhan-Marie O’Connor and Chris Walker-Hebborn have trained or currently train.
Many of the successful Olympic swimmers who have been based at Bath’s NCS have combined training with studying at the University. For example, Jamieson combined training for the Olympics with studying for a Sports Performance degree and Rio Olympian Andrew Willis is studying Chemical Engineering here.
Full biography profiles of the NCS swimmers who base their training at the University of Bath can be found on our athletes’ biographies page.
