Jo urges local residents to ‘back the bid’


Jo Swinson MP for East Dunbartonshire is calling on local residents to ‘back the bid’ and show their support for the 2018 Youth Olympic Games in Glasgow

Jo 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.

Commenting Jo 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.

“Local residents can visit www.glasgow2018.com and join the over 30,000 people who have already clicked the ‘Back the bid’ button on the top right corner. 

“You can also show support by tweeting and posting positive messages on Twitter and Facebook and downloading the twibbon for your Twitter or Facebook profileshttp://bit.ly/2018twibbon.”
