Michael Jamieson believes his heart scare could provide an unlikely boost to his chances of success at this year’s Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.
The Scotsman had to have his heart restarted last November after pushing himself too hard during training, with his heart beating irregularly and too quickly as a result of his exertions.
But Jamieson believes his health problems are evidence of his desire to win, even if that means putting his health on the line.
“I think that was a boost if nothing else,” said Jamieson, who finished runner-up to Germany’s Marco Koch in a 200m breaststroke at the Berlin International earlier this month.
“I think it shows just how much is being put into preparing for this summer.

A safety warning from the Dougherty County police about fishing or swimming in retention ponds. [...]
“Just like the retention pond we are at right now, when it fills up with water, parts of the ground are going to get very mushy and soggy and you can actually get stuck in that and you don’t know at any time an alligator could be in any of these ponds at any time,” says Captain Tom Jackson, with the Dougherty County Police

A video released by an amateur videographer on Monday shows employees of Burger King using the box of one of the chain stores like pool water.
The video shows three half-naked employees bathing and playing in the water tanks that sits on top of the Burger King in Faria Lima Avenue, prime area of São Paulo.
In a moment, another official attitude seems to rebuke. Even so, the “pool bath” continues.
According to Burger King, the filming was done while the store performed washing your water tank. Also according to the company, during the process, the water supply to the cafeteria was suspended until the boxes were emptied, cleaned and stocked again and the entire contents of the boxes was discarded without being used by the restaurant.
In a statement, Burger King declared that “the procedure adopted by the employees was off the guidance and company standards and that appropriate measures will be taken to ensure that events like this are not repeated.”

Read the interview with Danish national coach Nick Juba here on svoem.dk, where he evaluates the performance of the Great Danes team at the 3e Meeting Open Méditerranéen in Marseille, France.
How would you say the overall performance of the group has been at Mom Meet?
Much better than in Antwerp (Flanders Cup, red.)! This Great Danes initiative will, without a doubt, be a long journey and a difficult, soul-searching process, but the Mom Meet at least got us beyond first base! In general the group were more skillful, more together, and much tougher, than previously.
