IMPRESSIVE swimmers from the University of Stirling, led by Duncan Scott, brought home an impressive haul of medals and records from Sheffield.

The team was at Ponds Forge for the BUCS Short Course Championships, breaking a dozen records and winning 36 medals.

Duncan returned with eight medals to his name with golds in the 50m, 200m, 400m and 1,500m freestyle, the 200m and 400m medleys as well as 200m butterfly with the addition of a silver in the 100m butterfly.

He also broke the Scottish records in the 200m butterfly and 50m freestyle events and was part of the 4x50m freestyle relay team alongside Scott McLay, Calum Bain and Marty Walton – the quartet delivered a new national club record.

The latter three were joined by Craig Benson as they recorded the fastest ever time in the 4x50m medley relay.

Benson also claimed a hat-trick of golds in the 50m, 100m and 200m breaststroke.

Jon Law and Ollie Carter also earned new national bests in the S13 100m butterfly and the S10 100m butterfly and 100m breaststroke.

Law collected two golds and Carter earned one while Keanna MacInnes won in the 200m butterfly and Walton also claimed a gold in the 50m backstroke.

Cassie Wild, Craig McLean and Calum Bain also secured individual podium finishes whilst there were further relay medals for the men’s 4x50m medley B, women’s 4x50m medley and mixed 4x50m medley teams.

Steven Tigg, head performance swimming coach at the university, said: “We’re really pleased for the team and there were a few standout performances across the weekend.

“However, this group is always striving to get better and we’ve identified certain areas that we’ll be working on as we build towards the European and Scottish championships next month.”
