Winning six medals, Duncan was star of the pool at Gold Coast 2018, becoming Scotland’s most decorated athlete at a single Games and the first Scottish swimmer to win gold in the 100m Freestyle.

His performance showed the progress he had made since winning silver for Team Scotland in the 4x200m Freestyle Relay at the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games at the age of 17. He followed up with gold at the 2014 Youth Olympics, but it was the following year that he hit the headlines, taking three gold and three silver medals at the inaugural European Games in Baku. 2015 also saw him make his World Championship debut, swimming in the heats for the gold medal winning GB team in the 4x200m Freestyle Relay.

The Rio 2016 Olympic Games saw a phenomenal performance from Duncan as he won silver in both 4x200m Freestyle and 4x100m Medley relays and took 5th in his individual 100m Freestyle. He was named Male Athlete of the Year at the 2017 Team Scotland Scottish Sports Awards following World Championship gold and silver in the relays plus 4th and 5th places in his individual Freestyle events.
