<p><strong>CHILDREN in North Lanarkshire are being given the once-in-a-lifetime chance to race one of Scotland’s most successful athletes.</strong></p>
<p>Duncan Scott will be challenging youngsters to test their speed against him in a knockout competition during his visit to celebrate the success of an initiative that is already helping 5,500 kids in the region to learn to swim.</p>
<p>The Olympic medallist, World, Commonwealth and European Champion will join 40 children who are part of the national Learn to Swim Framework which operates in eight pools across the region.</p>
<p>Delivered by North Lanarkshire Leisure, in partnership with Scottish Swimming and Scottish Water, the Learn to Swim Framework teaches children of all abilities from birth upwards.</p>
<p>The official event will take place on the 2<sup>nd</sup> February at Tryst Sports Centre in Cumbernauld, and will see Duncan and the children showcase a Learn to Swim lesson.</p>
<p>There will also be a question-and-answer session to quiz Duncan on his life and sporting experiences, and learn more of his top swimming tips.</p>
<p>Duncan, who proudly takes on the role of Learn to Swim Ambassador, said: “I’m keen to see if there are any contenders who’ll be able to match my speed.</p>
<p>“I’m really looking forward to meeting the kids in North Lanarkshire to share my passion for swimming as it’s such an important sport: it’s fantastic for your health, it’s good fun and it’s a key life skill that’s important to learn from a young age.”</p>
<p>Kids in the area are also being invited to a free afternoon of fun in the water as Tryst Sports Centre will be rolling out a giant inflatable obstacle course for everyone to play on.</p>
