Olympians tackle Silverburn

OLYMPIC fever hits Giffnock on Friday as the torch arrives on East Renfrewshire soil, but on Saturday and Sunday residents have the chance to meet members of Team GB themselves.

Two surprise guest athletes from the team will visit Silverburn shopping centre throughout the weekend, offering live discussions, demonstrations and even the chance to test your speed against theirs.

The shopping centre will also have a podium, on which shoppers can have their photograph taken in front of the Team GB image.

Manager David O’Neill commented: “With the Olympics upon us, everyone is looking to get some more ideas on how to keep fit.

“The interactive elements should help our shoppers get on the right track”.
