Olympic medallist Michael Jamieson in Glasgow on 'inspirational' tour
Olympic medal winner Michael Jamieson will be diving into a Glasgow swimming pool with the aim of inspiring young people to take up his sport.
Jamieson, from Glasgow, took silver in the 200m breaststroke at the 2012 London Games.
The 23-year-old will be at Scotstoun Pool later as part of the British Swimming Heroes Tour.
Fellow Great Britain team-mate Craig Benson, from West Lothian, will also be at the event.
Speaking ahead of the visit, Jamieson said: "London 2012 was an amazing experience with huge crowds, and if we as Olympians can inspire more children to get in the pool as part of the legacy of the Games that will be incredible.
"It's great to be involved with the Heroes Tour and I hope all the kids taking part across the country have a fantastic time.
"Hopefully they will continue in the sport and some may even be lucky enough to experience an Olympics or Paralympics."'Wonderful spirit'
The swimmer said he hoped to win a Commonwealth gold in his home town of Glasgow in 2014.
Jamieson's medal in London was the first by a British male in the pool at an Olympics since Steve Parry took 200m butterfly bronze in Athens in 2004.
Ashley Howard, CEO of Scottish Swimming, said: "We are delighted that athletes from across our sport are part of this tour.
"We believe the commitment, focus, and wonderful spirit of our Olympians and Paralympians will be contagious, leaving a lasting impression with Scotland's youngsters and inspire them to get in the pool."
The tour is taking place in cities across the UK throughout August and September.
