Dave McNulty appointed Head Coach of Bath Intensive Training Centre

Olympic medal-winning coach Dave McNulty has been announced as the Head Coach of the soon to be established British Swimming Intensive Training Centre (ITC) at the University of Bath. McNulty, who coached Jo Jackson to a bronze medal in the 400m Freestyle at the Beijing Olympics, will head up one of a new nationwide network of five ITCs designed to provide a world-class daily training environment for swimmer development and to build on the success of Beijing as the sport looks towards London in 2012.

The former Durham Aquatics coach, who has spent the past six months at Loughborough University, is looking forward to the challenge.

"I'm very excited about this British Swimming opportunity to work as head coach of the Bath ITC," said McNulty."This ITC will provide all of the daily training requirements for high performance athletes in a world class environment. It will help to build on the success of the Beijing Olympics by looking forward to 2012 and beyond. I take up this position in October and I'm looking forward to working with everyone at TeamBath. By working together with TeamBath we will have a system in place that underpins the ITC and offers opportunities for all."

Melbourne

Women 10m Synchro final

Tonia Couch (Plymouth Diving) and Stacie Powell (Southampton Diving) had highs and lows at the World Championship pool in Melbourne after making the Women's 10m Synchro final impressively and then finishing a disappointing ninth overall.

A missed fourth dive did the damage for the British pair, who were lying in fourth place after round three, and in trying to make up too much ground on their final dive they slipped to ninth.

Women 3m Synchro Springboard Final

Tandi Gerrard (City of Leeds) and Hayley Sage (City of Sheffield) teamed up for their second successive World Championships, finishing eighth in a strong field that failed to feature the Canadian Olympic bronze medallists Blythe Hartley and Emilie Heymans in the final.

Gerrard and Sage finished with a total 294.36 points. Only 60 points separated the top eight, with gold going to the Chinese divers Minxia Wu and Jingjing Guo with 355.80 points, giving the 2008 Olympic host nation their eighth gold medal of the Championships. German pair of Ditte Kotzian and Heike Fischer took silver with 318.45 with bronze going to Briony Cole and Sharleen Stratton of Australia with 313.14 points.
