Bob Bowman: Will join a London 2012 performance debrief panel

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

Bob Bowman, who coached Phelps from 1996 to 2012, will join a London 2012 performance debrief panel to discover the reasons for the under-achievement of British swimmers at London, where their only successes were Michael Jamieson's silver medal and two bronzes for Rebecca Adlington.

Rio

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.

"We are sure he will make a massive contribution to our review."

British Swimming's chief executive, David Sparkes, said: "Bob is a coach with a wealth of experience and a proven track record of turning talent and hard work into medal success.

"We are sure he will make a massive contribution to our review."
