Local Paper Secures Olympic Blogger

A regional news website will offer a poolside view of the Olympics after securing the blogging services of a local swimmer.

Todd Cooper will be posting regular updates from his Beijing vantage point throughout the course of the summer games.

The Kidderminster Shuttle editor is the man behind the masterstroke to sign up Cooper, who will be competing in the butterfly events.

Clive Joyce told HoldtheFrontPage.co.uk that the Kidderminster-born swimmer still counts on the support of his hometown.

“He has not forgotten where he’s come from and still has loads of friends and family on the patch.”

Joyce added: “Because he has quite a lot of support locally, he jumped at the chance to tell people about his efforts when we asked him to write the blog.”
