CBAY: Caroline Bay Trust Aoraki Aquatic Centre

Timaru's new professional swimming coach for CBay should be announced shortly.

The Timaru District Council has confirmed it has a successful applicant after interviewing for the position but is awaiting a signed contract before announcing who it is.

The Herald understands the coach has been involved with New Zealand teams but not in a lead role.

The council had originally appointed Christchurch-based Paralympic coach Roly Crichton to the position but he failed to front on his first day of work and sent a one-line email to the council of his change of mind. Crichton has since apologised.
