VIDEO: Medals unveiled for Glasgow 2019 swimming championships

Scots swimmers Hannah Miley and Scott McLay have helped unveil unique medal designs as the countdown continues to next month’s LEN European Short Course Swimming Championships in Glasgow.

Top athletes from across the continent will compete at the city’s Tollcross International Swimming Centre from December 4 to 8, hoping to take home one of the prizes as a memorable souvenir.

Featuring a three-dimensional ripple effect, engraved individual event titles and iconic Glasgow landmarks, the medals were designed with the help of Triple-Olympian Hannah in her role as Official Championships Ambassador for the event.

As her design was unveiled, she said: “I was delighted to be involved in designing the Championship medals, and it was great to input some ideas from an athlete’s perspective.

“The medals will be something athletes from all around the world will treasure forever, and a great reminder of what I’m sure will be an amazing event in Glasgow.

“I’m so excited for Scotland to host another major international sporting event and can’t wait to see it all come to life over the next few weeks.”

Scotland’s most successful Commonwealth Youth Games athlete of all time, Scott McLay, was also in attendance at the medal unveiling.

Scott, who made his senior debut at this summer’s FINA World Swimming Championships in South Korea, will look to continue his progress in the senior ranks.

Having set personal bests in both Glasgow and Gwangju already in 2019, he’ll hope to finish his year on a high at Tollcross, and maybe even clinch one of these extra special medals.

Scott said: “The Commonwealth Youth Games medals I have are pretty iconic but I think Glasgow and Hannah have done a great job in the design of these.

“Having made my first GB senior team in the summer and seen a number of my teammates picking up medals, it has only stoked the fire even more and I’d love to get my hands on one of these in a months’ time.”

The LEN European Short Course Swimming Championships, taking place over five days, will see swimmers compete in 40 different events.

Races are competed in a 25m pool, requiring swimmers to complete more turns, so crowds will see competitive, adrenaline-fuelled races.
