Ross Murdoch announced himself on the scene of international Breaststroke with his stand out performance at the Commonwealth Games in 2014. He backed up his title by winning world bronze in 2015, a 2016 Olympic Games call-up and a Gold Coast 2018 silver.
Murdoch claimed silver at his second Commonwealth Games in the Men's 200m Breaststroke followed by a fifth in the 100m event. He was also part of the 4x100m Medley relay that finished fourth on the final night of racing.
His 2018 season concluded with the European Championships where he posted the third fastest time in the 100m Breaststroke heats but due to the two per nation rule he was unable to progress leaving him ranked 17th. He placed fourth in his preferred 200m breast event and in the single lap breaststroke event he finished tenth.
The Budapest 2017 World Championships saw Murdoch finish fourth in an incredibly close Men's 200m Breaststroke. He also reached the final of the Men's 100m Breaststroke, finishing eighth and collected a relay silver for his part in helping the British quartet reach the finals of the Men's 4x100mn Medley Relay.
At the 2017 British Swimming Championships, Ross put in a strong 200m Breaststroke performance to win the gold and claim his first British title in the event. He also won the silver medal in the 100m Breaststroke.
Ross made his Olympic Games debut following a successful start to 2016 including two trips to the podium at the National Championships, silver and bronze in the 100m and 200m breaststroke respectively. Final preparations ahead of Rio included a European title in the Men's 200m Breaststroke and he collected a further two medals in the 50m and 100m Breaststroke.
2015 saw Ross have another strong season at the top level of British Swimming, culminating with a bronze medal at the World Championships in Russia in the men’s 100m Breaststroke and he also helped GB on the way to a gold medal in the mixed Medley relay after his swim in the heats.
Earlier in the season he claimed three medals the domestic championships in London, including silver in the 50m and 100m Breaststroke events.
In 2014, Ross truly underlined his status as a world-class performer, winning 200m Breaststroke gold and 100m Breaststroke bronze for Scotland on his Commonwealth debut at Glasgow 2014, then adding silver over both 100m and 200m Breaststroke at his European Championship debut in Berlin the following month.
He topped the podium again in 2013 at the British Championships with a win the 100m breaststroke and a bronze in the 50m Breaststroke. A month later, Ross made his senior international debut at the World Championships in Barcelona, reaching the semi-finals of the 100m Breaststroke.
