Focus switches back to results; SPORT SHORTS SPORT SHORTS SWIMMING.

WHILE swimming has enjoyed more column inches than it is accustomed to recently, it will be with some relief that attention finally turns to action in the pool when the World Short-Course Championships start today in Istanbul.

Performance at the Olympics fell below expectation with three medals - two bronzes from Rebecca Adlington and a silver from Michael Jamieson. Adlington hit out at British Swimming, accusing them of ignoring the swimmers.

Eyes now turn to the meet in Sinan Erdem Dome, where Jamieson spearheads a 19-strong British squad. The 24-year-old would not let himself get distracted by events out of the pool. He said: "I am just looking forward to hopefully posting some good results and do my talking in the pool."
