Quick fire Q&As and media duties for GB’s para swimmers
To kick off a busy week of events for Promote, Ruth headed up to the British Para Swimming National Performance Centre in Manchester for a media and content gathering day with some of the GB squad.
Channel 5 and ITV attended the team’s training camp to talk to the GB athletes about their preparations for the upcoming World Para Swimming Allianz Championships, now less than a month away. In addition to the interviews, media were also granted to access to film the team training in the water.
We also used to the event to capture content with the para swimmers that can be used across stakeholder channels in the lead up to the event, which starts on the 9th September. In pairs, we asked the athletes a series of quick-fire questions with the aim of bringing audiences closer to the athletes and getting to know them better, as well as finding out about their ambitions for the World Championships, Tokyo 2020 and their inspiring stories.
The 2019 World Para Swimming Allianz Championships takes place from 9-15 September at the London Aquatics Centre. Tickets are still available for just £5: www.seetickets.com/go/2019worldparaswim
