Following his silver medal win in the men’s 200m individual medley on July 30th, Team GB’s Duncan Scott is now the most successful British swimming Olympian since the early 1900s.
The Glaswegian athlete is also on track to becoming the first British Olympian across all sports to win four medal at one Olympics.
He started the Tokyo Games strong, winning a silver medal in the 200m freestyle and then went on to win gold as part of the team that won the 4x200m freestyle relay on July 28.
His only downfall is that he missed out on the opportunity to win an individual gold medal, having placed second in the 200m free swim, where he was beaten by teammate Tom Dean and the 200m Medley which was won by Chinese swimmer, Wang Shun.
Despite feeling “initially really gutted,” the 24-year-old bounced back with incredible vigour and now, with two remaining events remaining, there’s every chance Scott will smash the record and then some.
How many medals has Duncan Scott won?
The swimmer has won three medals, a medal for each event he’s taken part in so far. He has the opportunity to win two more in the upcoming men’s medley relay and mixed medley relays.
When is Duncan Scott’s next event?
The first stage of the 4×100 metre men’s medley relay takes place at 13:15 UK time on Friday July 30 th . Scott will likely be swimming alongside teammates Tom Dean, James Guy and Matt Richards.
If the Team GB swimmers qualify against Japan France and Greece, they’ll compete in the final which airs at 03:35 am UK time on Sunday August 1.
