Taking a team that is less than half the size of some of the more successful swimming nations does not seem to be in line with exposing swimmers to tougher competition.

Good point (esp at euro s/c level where 4 pr nation were allowed in precisely to given exposure to those on their way up…)

Budget cut, short term goals put first.
Seems like one step forward & two back once again for British Swimming.
