We already have a fairly good base here in the UK - it would be 'easy' to build
on this. I think 2000 is more realistic aswell. Unfortunately, here in the
UK, us swimmers have very little in the the way of backing (did I say very
I meant none. Haha - only serious).

HOW MUCH!? $300,000 is ALOT of wedge (I think) - and how come it has come
available here in the UK - that must be more than is currently spent on the
whole of UK competitive swimming!!!
