A Day in the Life of Olympian Robbie Renwick

Later this summer Glasgow, Scotland will be hosting the 2014 Commonwealth Games. For Robbie Renwick, it will be a chance to compete on the international stage in his home country.

Renwick first came onto the international scene anchoring the silver medal winning 4 x 200 metre freestyle relay at the 2006 Commonwealth Games in Melbourne.

He won the 200 metre freestyle at the 2010 Commonwealth Games, and represented Great Britain at the 2008 Beijing Olympics in the 200m free and the 4 x 200m free relay.

Here we see a full day of training for Robbie and the City of Glasgow Swim Team, who have the benefit of training in the host facility — the Tollcross International Swimming Centre — for the Games later this summer. We follow Robbie as he does a couple sessions at the pool as well as some form and power work in the weight room at Emirates Arena, home of the SportScotland Institute of Sport.
