Tsym stands down as head coach for British Synchro
22 Jan 2010
British Swimming today announced that Tatiana Tsym, Head Coach for Synchronised Swimming, has decided to leave her position within the sport.
Tsym joined the sport in 2008 and was integral to the success that the team enjoyed in Rome at the 2009 World Championships. The team returned to the UK with the sport’s best results from a World Championships in over ten years and enjoyed more success at the 2009 FINA World Trophy in December.
Tsym previously worked with Synchro’s number one nation – Russia and brought her experience and knowledge to the team.
National Performance Director Biz Price said: “Tatiana was the right person at the right time to assist us in our progression to the 2012 games and beyond.
“She excelled in teaching the athletes and staff technical synchro skills and I know they will continue to benefit the team after she has departed.
“Her contribution to the development of the team has been immeasurable and I am grateful for the time she spent with us.”
British Swimming and its principal partner British Gas wish her well in the future.
