Mark Foster talks swimming with SportsvibeTV


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.
