“We apologize for any offence this old information may have caused” – Swim England

A Swim England spokesperson disclosed to BBC Sport: “This was an old web page from 2010 that does not represent the views of Swim England.

“As soon as the article got to our attention, we removed the page.

“And we are also in the process of replacing it with more appropriate information.

“Swimming is one of the most accessible activities for people of all ages and abilities.

“We want everyone to feel comfortable in the water.

“And that is so that they can take advantage of the many benefits swimming has to offer.

“We apologize for any offence this old information may have caused.
