This week, Olympic bronze medallist Jo Jackson joined East Riding of Yorkshire Council and Sport England in Bridlington to officially open the first legacy pool from London 2012.
One of nine training pools from the Olympic park, the swimming pool was used by athletes during the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. Each has been dismantled and is being relocated across the country with Bridlington being the first community to benefit from this Olympic legacy.
On 1 March 2014 Sunderland will host the British Gas GBR Men's Water Polo team's home leg of the LEN Men's Water Polo European Championships play off against Romania.
