Appeal to residents in Milngavie and Bearsden to support Youth Olympic Games bid

Local people are being urged to ‘back the bid’ and show their support for the 2018 Youth Olympic Games in Glasgow.

Jo Swinson MP for East Dunbartonshire is adding her voice to Glasgow 2018 Bid Champions Sir Chris Hoy, Katherine Grainger, Michael Jamieson and Jade Jones to highlight why out of all the candidate cities Glasgow is the best choice to host the world’s leading sporting event for young people.

Ms Swinson said: “The 2018 YOG would be the perfect way to continue the legacy of the 2014 Commonwealth Games and last year’s Olympics in London.

“Glasgow is more than up for the challenge thanks to the preparations already under way for next summer’s games.”
