Meet Michael Jamieson – founder of MJ Swim Academy
“I started out in All Saints School with Glasgow City Council, swam at the Glasgow School of Sport in Bellahouston Academy and City of Glasgow Swim Team as a developing age grouper, after beginning my club journey with Scotia in Bishopbriggs.
Throughout my professional career; travelling all over the world, competing and winning medals at every level of international competition, I always had an incredible amount of support from the people of Glasgow, so I felt very humbled and grateful to launch the Swim Academy in the city where it all began for me.
To have the opportunity to share everything I’ve learned along the way and give back to swimming by creating a similar experience for developing young athletes alongside an amazing team is truly special.
Being a product of the system gives me the platform to improve and enhance the learning of young swimmers here in Glasgow and Edinburgh. I’m extremely passionate about providing a learning environment to develop people through the sport of swimming.”
