Jo Swinson MP for East Dunbartonshire and Deputy Leader of the Scottish Liberal Democrats is supporting Glasgow's bid to host the 2018 Youth Olympics.
The decision on which of the five cities will win the bid will come in July 2013.
Commenting Jo said:
"I am 100% behind Glasgow's bid to host the 2018 Youth Olympics. With the Olympics on in London and Glasgow 2014 coming up this would be an amazing way to keep the legacy going and keep young people interested in sport.
"The success of local Olympic stars Katherine Grainger and Michael Jamieson, and of course Scots tennis hero Andy Murray, is a great springboard to encourage more kids to take up sport.
"Bringing the Youth Olympics to Glasgow in 2018 would continue to inspire a whole new generation of young people.
"I encourage everyone to visit http://www.glasgow2018.com/ and pledge their support."
