“Scott is an athlete for the modern age; utterly fearless, frighteningly dedicated and hugely talented” – Tom English, BBC

Duncan Scott is a double Olympic Silver medallist and the most successful Scottish swimmer ever at any Commonwealth Games. Just 21 years old, he balances his international swim training commitments whilst studying for a degree in business and sports studies at the University of Stirling in Scotland.

In 2014, at the age of just 16, Duncan burst on to the international swimming scene winning a Commonwealth Games silver medal in the 4x200m Freestyle Relay for Team Scotland in Glasgow.

In 2015 he made his first appearance at the European Games, winning three golds and three silvers to become Great Britain’s most decorated athlete in Baku. Later that year, at his debut appearance at a World Championships, he took home the gold medal as part of the men’s 4x200m Freestyle relay team.

Prior to the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Duncan competed in the European Swimming Championships in London, where he claimed two gold medals in the men’s and mixed 4×100 Medley Relays.

The summer of 2016 cemented Duncan’s status as a rising star of the international swim scene when he returned from the Olympics as a two-time silver medallist as part of the Men’s 4x200m Freestyle and 4x100m Medley relay teams that finished narrowly behind the all-star USA team led by Michael Phelps.

A testament to his huge potential, Duncan also achieved a fifth-place finish in the Men’s 100m Freestyle, in the process setting a new British record of 48.01 seconds and becoming the first British man to reach the Freestyle final since Bobby McGregor in 1968.

This success continued into 2017 as Duncan won a silver medal in the 4x100m Medley relay before successfully defending his 4x200m Freestyle relay title at the World Championships in Budapest.

Now 21 years old, Duncan has amassed the highest ever total of medals achieved by a Scottish swimmer in a Commonwealth Games. The 2018 Gold Coast event saw Duncan win a total of six medals: one gold, one silver and four bronzes.

In honour of his incredible contribution to Scotland’s largest ever medal tally (44), Duncan was selected as Team Scotland’s flag bearer at the Games’ closing ceremony and has cemented his position in the Team GB squad for the European Championships in August 2018.

Duncan trains with coach Steven Tigg at the National Swimming Academy, Scotland.
