FINA 2009 World Championships Swimming - Day 3 Morning Session

David Davies took five seconds off the 800m Freestyle British record as the British Gas swimming team secured one final and three semi-final places after strong performances through the heat session. Davies took to heat four alongside Italian Federico Colbertaldo and Robert Hurley (Australia) and was looking to post a quick time to reach the final next day.

The Olympic silver medallist dominated the first half of his race but as the race entered the final 400m Colbertaldo began to close in on the British Gas swimmer. Davies showed his strength in the final 100m as he touched in a time of 7:45.89 to knock five seconds off his own British record time and qualified in fourth place for the final.

Licensing and Swim 21

There are 3 factors regarding Licensing and the Swim 21 Accreditation programme that has led to the belief that a procedure for Swim 21 and Licensing is required:

  • The new Swim 21 programme, launched in April 2006, refers to Teachers and Coaches throughout the modules, as being ‘licensed’.
  • Since the introduction of the ASA Licensing scheme, there has been no minimum operating guidelines for Swim 21, stipulating who within a Swim 21 club should gain a license and how this is evidenced.
  • Since no guidelines have been in place, the dependency of a coach license to achieve S21 has varied at Regional Panels.

Accreditation, Revalidation and Re-accreditation Dates
