British Gas have been supporting British Swimming’s quest to bring our Olympic Heroes from London 2012 to local pools across the country, inspiring a generation of young swimmers. This August and September we’ll be giving kids the chance to get in the pool and up close and personal with their heroes from swimming, diving, synchro and water polo as they learn about what it takes to become an athlete.
The tour kicked off in London on the 17th August, and we went down with aquatic bloggers Simply Swim, who got involved with the activities on offer and chatted to Olympians Rebecca Adlington, Keri-Anne Payne, Simon Burnett, Steve Parry, and many more along the way.
Following their day at The Heroes Tour with us, Simply Swim have put together this brilliant show reel documenting the day’s events
