Ross stunned everyone, most of all himself, by taking 200m Breaststroke gold at the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games, ahead of Team Scotland team mate and pre-race favourite Michael Jamieson. Ross also took bronze in the 100m Breaststroke in Glasgow before going on to take two silver medals at the European Championships to round out a fantastic 2014.

In 2015 he landed his first World title with gold as part of the 4x100m Medley Relay team, also taking bronze in the 100m Breaststroke. He went on to compete at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games and shone at the 2016 European Championships where he took two gold, one silver and one bronze. 2017 saw him back on the World Championship podium with silver in the 4x100m Men’s Medley Relay.
