Reasons for signing

  • My granddaughter is competing, would love to see it televised, these people put so much work into what they do.
  • important for the country to support our swimmers and the events should be televised so the nation can do so.
  • disgraceful that it is not on TV. Whoever is responsible in British Swimming for promoting swimming is not doing a very good job
