Who are the BBC’s swimming commentators?

The two main BBC swimming commentators at the 2022 Commonwealth Games will be pool-side at the aquatics centre in Birmingham.

They are former competitive swimmer turned sports commentator Andy Jameson and fellow Olympian Adrian Moorhouse. Moorhouse won the gold medal in the 100m breaststroke at the 1988 Olympics in Seoul, South Korea.

Jameson won the gold medal in the 100m butterfly at the 1986 Commonwealth Games and the 1987 European Aquatics Championships. He won a bronze medal in the 1988 Olympics.

If you’re tuning into live swimming action, it’s Jameson and Moorhouse you’re likely to hear. Andy has been sharing updates on his Twitter account throughout the Games:
