The head coach admitted he may be interested in the Great Britain role "in the future", adding that although he does not want the job at the moment he is excited about the prospect of gaining experience leading a full international squad in Turkey next week.

In addition to Jamieson, other high-profile athletes competing at the

include 2011 world silver medallist Hannah Miley, as well as London Olympians Francesca Halsall and Elizabeth Simmonds.
