British Swimming have turned to Michael Phelps' former coach to help them find out what went wrong at the Olympics.

Bowman, who has been part of the United States team for the last three Olympics and coached Phelps to a record 22 Olympic medals, will join panel members Thomas Lurz, Conor O'Shea, Craig Hunter and Michael Scott as British Swimming begin to look ahead to Rio in 2016.
