An Olympic star has slammed sick trolls who streamed porn into a free online swim session for kids.

One parent was reduced to tears while another fumed that her child couldn’t “unsee” what had happened, Edinburgh Live reports.

The live session was being hosted by Scottish Swimming and had around 300 people logged in when X-rated footage began to be streamed into the virtual room.

Ace Scots swimmer Duncan Scott, 22, who won two silver medals at the 2016 Olympics, was left fuming at the incident which forced the session to be shut down.

Duncan said: “Our open invite workout date was cancelled due to a sick individual. I am sorry for what everyone and more importantly for what the kids that were part of the workout had to see.”

One parent said: “My 11-year-old says he can’t unsee it. Feel so angry that people can be so awful knowing it’s something aimed at kids.”

The swim event had to be cancelled despite 300 people beginning logged in

Another parent, Lyndsey Elliot, said: ” I was in tears afterwards from shock and anger. I did some serious swearing to get it out of my head.”

Scottish Swimming has since apologised.

A statement from Scottish Swimming reads: “Scottish Swimming sincerely apologises for the incident that happened this morning during an organised Zoom event.

At the end of last week we shared information about the workout across our social media platforms, asking those interested in participating to log into a link that was shared publicly this morning.

Scottish Swimming called in police and apologised after an open online workout with athletes was hijacked with “disturbing content”

“Unfortunately it was ‘Zoom-bombed’ with disturbing content shared with circa 300 people that had signed in to the event. The video was immediately shut down and referred to the police.”

Zoom bombing is an increasing problem as people look for new ways to meet during the coronavirus lockdown.
