Scots on Team GB: Day Four

July 27, 2021

Duncan Scott has been the man of the moment with his Olympic silver medal performance, but how are our other Commonwealth Scots doing? We have a look at the latest from Tokyo.


Scott was agonisingly close to a gold medal, with just 0.04 seconds separating him from Team GB teammate Tom Dean, but the pair will be teaming up in the 4x200m freestyle final, scheduled for 04:26 BST on Wednesday morning. The 200m individual medley heats will take place later on Wednesday, with Duncan in Heat 6 (12:12).

Kathleen Dawson missed out on a medal in the 100m backstroke final, finishing in sixth position in a fiercely contested swim.

Ross Murdoch qualified for the semi-finals of the 200m breaststroke after finishing fifth in his year – the semis are scheduled for 03:21.


Kirsty Gilmour started her bid for a medal with a strong performance against Pakistan’s Mahoor Shahzad, winning 21-14, 21-14. She’s back in action at 01:00 against Japan’s Akane Yamaguchi.
