Scots on Team GB: Day Nine

August 1, 2021

Day Nine of the Tokyo Olympics saw Duncan Scott make history with a fourth medal in the pool. We take a look ahead to what’s coming up on Monday.


Duncan Scott’s fourth medal of Tokyo 2020 was the standout performance in the pool on Day 9, taking silver in a new European record alongside Luke Greenbank, Adam Peaty and James Guy in the 4 x100m Medley Relay. He becomes the first British athlete ever to win four medals at a single Olympic Games.

With the swimming programme now concluded, Monday sees diver James Heatly in qualifying for the 3m Springboard (07:00).


Monday will see Laura Muir get her 1500m campaign underway at 01:35.

Beth Dobbin is in action in the 200m heats (02:30) with semi-finals scheduled for later in the day (11:25).


Team Pursuit qualifying begins with three of Team GB’s gold medal winning quartet from Rio 2016 back in action. Katie Archibald teams up with Laura Kenny, Elinor Barker and Josie Knight in the qualifying round at 07:54 on Monday morning, with fellow Scot Neah Evans also part of the squad.


Team GB’s women’s hockey side, including Scot Sarah Robertson, take on Spain in Monday’s semi-finals (13:00).
