The stars of Team GB's swimming team are beginning a nationwide tour hoping to encourage thousands of children to get into the pool.
The tour is part of the legacy of the London 2012 Olympic Games.
Speaking to Sky News, Rebecca Adlington, Keri-Anne Payne and Michael Jamieson admitted they were having "a bit of post-Olympic blues" but said they were getting busy with the tour to try and get children interested in swimming.
Adlington said: "The Games for us were absolutely amazing. Obviously from a performance target as well, but, at the same time just to inspire kids to get involved is something that means a lot to all three of us."

Payne was asked if her disappointment at missing out a medal on the 10k outdoor swimming race was mitigated by her new role.
She admitted: "I am still a bit gutted about my performance. But our aim as swimmers is to try to inspire the next generation, as well as trying to get everyone else in the water as well."
Jamieson said it was "important to maintain the momentum around sport in the UK, leading into the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow in a couple of years, and beyond that".
The team said their aim was to interact with the children as much as they could by helping out, giving them a few tips, talking to them to see what strokes they liked and trying to see what the children themselves wanted to gain.
