Carlin fully focused on Olympic dream

19 December 2014 / 14:31

After proving herself on the biggest stages in 2014 swimmer Jazz Carlin says she only has one focus for the next 18 months- Rio 2016.

The 24-year-old has been a frequent visitor to the podium this year after claiming double European gold in the 400m and 800m freestyl, as well as world short course silver and two medals at the Commonwealth Games.

And, as she prepares to stake her claim for a spot in Rio, Carlin has opted to move from Swansea to Bath to team up with coach David McNulty.

“I still have a big dream of competing at an Olympic Games and I am still very determined to achieve this. My only focus now is preparation for 2016,” she said.

“I really want to thank all of the staff and coaches at Swim Wales for their support over the years.

“It has meant so much to me and has helped me to achieve so much in my career to date.

“It’s been a tough decision to make the move to Bath. But I'm really looking forward to working with David [McNulty].

“I've worked with David a lot this year as a coach in the build up to the European Championships and World Short Course Championships, and I am confident that Bath currently offers the best programme for me.”
