Scottish swimming legend David Carry caused a splash when he dropped in to Midlothian Swimming Club bronze squad at Penicuik Centre pool last Tuesday. Recently-retired David is a three time Olympian. He offered to come and train with a local swim team via Twitter and Midlothian swimming Club were lucky enough to be selected.Staying for the full training session, he demonstrated dives from the block, streamlined swim shapes and turning – before having a few fun races with some of the team. Youngsters had a chance to ask him some questions, including:

Who is the most famous person you’ve met? To which he replied: “I’ve had quite a long chat with the queen.” What do you eat before morning training? “Porridge or rice krispies bananas and hot milk.” What was the best swimming advice given to you? and who gave it? His dad told him to, just to enjoy swimming.
