November 24 - Former weightlifter Alan Ogilvie (pictured), who won three medals at the 1990 Commonwealth Games and represented Britain in two Olympics, was today jailed for three years for tricking young boys into "cybersex" sessions.


The 41-year-old Scot posed as a teenage girl on the internet to lure the teenagers into exposing themselves on webcams.


Edinburgh Sheriff Court heard he posted footage of teenage girls that the boys thought was a live webcam they could interact with.


Ogilvie would then record the boys performing sex acts.


Sheriff William Holligan said it was the third time Ogilvie, of Edinburgh, had breached a sexual offences prevention order.


He said: "There is some concern to the public interest and public protection and it is against that background I consider sentence."


Ogilvie was caught using a web chatroom in a police visit to his Edinburgh home.


He later told a nurse he had 10 clips of boys aged 14 to 15.


He previously did time for an incident with boys at a public toilet, and for a child porn conviction.
