Duncan Scott



Duncan Scott was one of Britain's busiest in the Tokyo 2020 pool, capturing one gold and three silver medals making him Team GB’s most decorated Olympic swimmer of all-time.

Duncan- who trains under Steve Tigg at the University of Stirling – also claimed two golds and three silvers at his most recent major meet, May's European Championships.

The University of Stirling athlete became the most decorated swimmer ever at a Commonwealth Games after finishing Gold Coast 2018 with six medals to his name. That tally included gold in the 100m Freestyle, a 200m Individual Medley silver and four bronzes.

Duncan made a memorable Olympic bow at the Rio 2016 Games, as he secured a duo of silvers by playing a part in the Men's 4x200m Freestyle and 4x100m Medley Relay quartets.

In 2014, his first Commonwealth Games saw him assist Team Scotland to a silver in the Men's 4x200m Freestyle Relay - his first senior international medal.

In 2018, he won a public vote to be crowned National Lottery Athlete of the Year.
