Loanhead swimmer Scott Quin joined Minister for Commonwealth Games and Sport, Shona Robison, and children from Edinburgh’s Preston Street Primary School last week on a visit to the Royal Commonwealth Pool to mark the 1,000 day countdown to the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games.

The Royal Commonwealth Pool is currently undergoing major refurbishment to provide a world class facility for hosting the Commonwealth Games diving events in 2014, and leave a lasting legacy for future generations.

Scott, 21, who swims with the Warrender Swim Club, is a hopeful for the London 2012 Paralympics and has his sights set on competing in the Commonwealth Games in 2014.
