As the acton drew to a close in Rio last August, Bill Furniss, the head coach of Britain celebrating the nation’s finest result in the Olympic pool since the age of pioneers more than a century before, shot a cannon ball across the bows of FINA and the International Olympic Committee for failing to protect clean athletes. Could the blazers please explain to most of the seven charges who finished fourth in Rio why they had failed to deliver clean sport. One of the seven is gone, retired, six remain and will take to their blocks once more in pursuit of honour and fair play at the British Championships in Sheffield this week
