I’ve been swimming in local pools since I can remember and there’s no doubt those pools helped me win two Olympic gold medals.
Without the access I had, and that was available for everyone, I would not be able to do what I do. But it’s not just about the elite level, it’s really important to have as many pools as possible for everyone to use.
Swimming is not only fun, but a great way for the whole family to exercise. More and more pools around the country seem to be closing down and we have to fight it before it’s too late.
