Glasgow to host 2015 world swim meet

Glasgow will host the 2015 IPC Swimming World Championships, the International Paralympic Committee has announced.

Tollcross International Swimming Centre, the 2014 Commonwealth Games pool, will host the event, which is expected to see more than 650 athletes from over 50 countries in competition.

The awarding of the event was originally stated as a European Championships but with a change to the IPC calendar the competition was upgraded to a World Championships.

British Swimming chief executive David Sparkes said: "The Paralympics in London introduced the world to the quality of swimming and I hope that audience will embrace this competition in the same way."

The 2013 IPC Swimming World Championships will be staged in Canada next August.
