Olympic silver medalist Michael Jamieson has been reunited with his Olympic kit which he left on a train thanks to keen nosed detective work by staff at ScotRail and First Great Western.
Michael won the silver medal in the 200 metres breaststroke at the 2012 Summer Olympics. In despair he tweeted: ‘Left my suitcase on the train a few days ago – had some Olympic kit in it and a new pair of sneakers… gutted! Help plz!’
Michael Jamieson from Glasgow lives and trains in Bath. His case, which included a Team GB wash bag and tracksuit bottoms, was tracked down to the lost property office at Paddington, where Michael had originally set off by train to Bath.
Says Michael, ‘I had been to London and was going home quite late. I just got up and walked off the train without it. I never thought I would see it again, but it’s great to finally have it back.’
Michael was re-united with his luggage at Bath Spa. Peter Rignall, Station Manager said, ‘It’s so pleasing to be able to help this young star out and have his case returned to him.’ Michael is a sports performance student and trains at the British Swimming Bath Intensive Training Centre at the University of Bath.
