FORMER Olympian and Rockhampton resident Duncan Armstrong will return to his home turf tomorrow to star in a film.

Capricorn Enterprise is undergoing a long term project to produce a campaign video to bid for Pre Event Training in the lead up to the 2018 Commonwealth Games at the Gold Coast.

Rockhampton and Capricorn Coast have some of the best sporting facilities in regional Queensland and are in a perfect position to host pre event training.

The campaign will feature a number of local athletes who have appeared at both the Commonwealth and Olympic Games, and thus far filming has included Anna Meares (Olympic Gold Cyclist), Karni Liddell (Paralympic Bronze Swimmer) and tomorrow, Olympic swimmer, Duncan Armstrong will return home so he can also feature in the bid.
