Dave Roberts appeal has been unsuccessful
British Swimming can confirm the appeal by Dave Roberts has been unsuccessful following a review by the National Performance Director of his original discretionary decision not to select him.
Chief Executive David Sparkes said: “After a robust and independent appeals process, British Swimming followed the recommendations of the independent Appeals Committee and after receiving an independent medical report we believe Dave has not met the standards set out for selection to the Paralympics Games.
“Obviously we are sorry that Dave will not be there and we all wish him well for the future. I am sure that he along with all of us wish the whole Paralympic team good luck for the Games.”
