Duncan Scott - 2018 Cut Out.png

Duncan Scott returned a double silver medallist from his first Olympic Games in Rio and has won titles at back-to-back FINA World Championships as he continues to demonstrate world-class talent.

Scott returned from his second outing for Team Scotland as the most decorated swimmer ever at a Commonwealth Games, with six medals, his haul included gold, silver and four bronze.

He rounded off another busy season with three Continental titles and gold medals plus a silver in the 100m Freestyle at the Glasgow 2018 European Championships.

Budapest 2017 was Scott's second World Championships outing and he once again achieved medal success. Gold came in the Men's 4x200m Freestyle as the British quartet posted a new national record and made the finals of the 100m and 200m Freestyle.

On the final night of competition in the Hungarian capital, he was part of the silver medal-winning Men's 4x100m Medley Relay team that also set a new British record.

At 2017 British Swimming Championships, Duncan showed that he is a force to be reckoned with in the world of British Freestyle sprinting by retaining his title in the 100m Freestyle then backed up his performance with a silver and two bronze medals.

Two silver medals at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games when he was part of the Men's 4x200m Freestyle and 4x100m Medley relay team.

He also achieved a fifth-place finish in the Men's 100m Freestyle and set a new British record in the process of 48:01, the first British man to reach that final since Bobby McGregor in 1968.

2016 also saw Duncan compete at a home European Aquatics Championships and claimed two relay gold in the Men's and Mixed 4x100 medley relays.

Making his debut appearance at a World Championships in 2015, he came away with a gold medal as part of the men’s 4x200m Freestyle relay team.  Earlier in the year, Duncan made his first senior international team at the inaugural European Games, winning three golds and three silvers making him Great Britain’s most decorated athlete in Baku.

2014 saw him assist Team Scotland to a Commonwealth Silver in the 4x200m Freestyle relay at Glasgow 2014.
