ELIZABETH Pollard, a fourth year pupil at Shawlands Academy, has joined the Glasgow Youth Olympic Bid team at the Emirates Arena.

Elizabeth was representing the views of Glasgow’s young people as the team made a presentation to the International Olympic committee via a videoconference.

Glasgow made the IOC shortlist of candidate cities for the 2018 Youth Olympic Games on February 13. It is now on a shortlist of three cities, with Buenos Aires in Argentina and Medellin in British Columbia, Canada.

The International Olympic Committee will announce the winning city on July 4.
