What are the best universities for Sport?

I am a swimmer and I want to compete at a high level whilst at university. Which university is best for sport and has excellent coaches and facilities for swimming?

Check the BUCS website at:

BUCS stands for British Universities & Colleges Sports. The organisation produces a league table of all universities, overall and for each sport. That should give you some idea of the best unis for sport.

Off the top of my head I know that Durham, Loughborough, and Bath are well up there for sport overall. More info about each:
