Mark Foster talks to SportsvibeTV about everyday exercise and swimming, the Olympic legacy, the state of British swimming and the ‘SwimBritain’ initiative headed up by British Gas.
Six-time World Champion Mark Foster is calling on people to get out of their seats and into the pool, after a new survey found that 23% of people in Britain spend at least an average of 2.4 days of their working week sitting down. This equates to 2,760 hours or 115 days a year.
Foster launched the report, commissioned by the British Gas ‘SwimBritain’ campaign, on Tuesday alongside four-time Paralympic champion Ellie Simmonds.
British Gas wants to help create a healthier nation and get more people swimming regularly by 2015. ‘SwimBritain’ is a fun swimming relay challenge for teams of four, in the pool or open water.
