Olympian Carry to join British Swimming Board

8 Feb 2018

Commonwealth Games Gold medallist and triple-Olympian David Carry has joined the British Swimming Board.

Carry represented Scotland at the 2002, 2006 and 2010 Commonwealth Games winning gold in the 400m freestyle and 400m medley in Melbourne. He also represented Great Britain at the Athens, Beijing and London Olympics, retiring shortly after the 2012 games.

Since then he has taken his pool experience into the boardroom as co-founder of two businesses: Track Record, an international leadership coaching business and Triscape, a swimming coaching business setup with his wife, Keri-Anne Payne, inspiring people into the open water. He was appointed to the Scottish Swimming Board back in 2013.

Of his appointment, David said: “I’m delighted to be joining the board of British Swimming.

“During my four years at Scottish Swimming I was involved in several projects I’m particularly proud of, including improvements to performance centres and developing a strong commercial partnership with Scottish Water.

“As an ambassador for Glasgow 2018, I am looking forward to working towards Birmingham 2022 in what is an undoubtedly exciting time for aquatics.”

As a result of this appointment, David will step down from his role on the board at Scottish Swimming with immediate effect.

Maurice Watkins CBE, Chairman of British Swimming, said: “David brings a wealth of experience to our board from his time both in and out of the pool.”

“We are confident he can add an extra level of energy and first-hand knowledge that can be used to support British Swimming’s progress over the coming years.

“I am very pleased to welcome him into this vital role.”
