Duncan Scott has been named as one of the first swimmers selected for the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games.

He has been name alongside Kathleen Dawson as the opening pick.

Scott learned to swim at Troon swimming pool, and he claimed major success by becoming the British Olympian with the highest total of medals at a single Olympics, by winning three silvers and one gold.

At Gold Coast 2018 Duncan Scott hit the headlines, becoming the first Scottish swimmer ever to win the Men’s 100m Freestyle title and breaking the record for the most medals won by a Scot at a single Commonwealth Games, stepping onto the podium an incredible six times.

Looking ahead to next year, Duncan said: “I am delighted to be selected for a third Commonwealth Games.

“We don’t get the chance to compete under the Scotland banner too often, and being part of the wider group at the last couple of Games has been great.

“It’s such a close-knit team and everyone knows each other – a lot of us have enjoyed success together in the past and shared those experiences.

“I’ve been really pleased with how this year has gone, and hopefully it will be another big one in 2022.”
