Michael Jamieson

Michael Jamieson is one of the most succesful British swimmers of his generation, having won medals at Olympic, World and Commonwealth level.

He made his big international breakthrough in 2010, following an encouraging 10th over 200m Breaststroke on his European Championship debut in Budapest with silver in the same event for Scotland at the 2010 Commonwealth Games in Delhi.

Jamieson continued to build momentum in 2011, finishing fifth in the 200m Breaststroke final at his debut World Championships before landing bronze at the European Short Course Championships in Szcezcin, Poland.

He gained national recognition in 2012, winning the 200m Breaststroke silver medal at the London 2012 Olympic Games then backing that performance up with the same result at the 2012 World Short Course Championships in Istanbul.

Despite on-going injury problems in 2013, Jamieson landed his fourth British title then repeated his 2011 result with a fifth-place finish at the 2013 Worlds in Barcelona.

Competing in his home town at the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games, Jamieson bounced back on to the international podium, repeating his result from four years before to win silver in the 200m Breaststroke.
