Jamieson named British Gas Ambassador
18th December 2012
British Gas has signed London 2012 Olympic silver medallist and newly-crowned world short course silver medallist Michael Jamieson as a swimming ambassador for the next two years.
Jamieson will help to promote British Gas’s sponsorship of swimming from grass roots to elite level.
We are delighted to welcome Michael to the British Gas team as a swimming ambassador.
British Gas has been the principal partner of British Swimming since 2009 and supports swimming at all levels in Britain. This summer over 141,000 people took the plunge with the British Gas Free Swims for Britain campaign, which encouraged the public to support the elite swimming athletes in return for free swims.
British Gas also supported the post London 2012 British Swimming Heroes Tour, which saw Jamieson, Rebecca Adlington and Britain’s elite athletes from all aquatic disciplines, holding special master classes around the country to inspire children to get involved in aquatic sports.
British Gas Brand Director Susie Plume said: “We are delighted to welcome Michael to the British Gas team as a swimming ambassador.
“Michael trains at the British Gas ITC in Bath and we have followed his progress closely during the three years of our swimming sponsorship.
“It was fantastic to see his great performance in London this summer and his swim in Istanbul last week reinforced his status as a great role model and ambassador for the sport.”
