Scotland has revealed its 24-strong line-up of swimmers and Para swimmers for this summer’s Commonwealth Games.
The nation’s most decorated Olympian of all time, Duncan Scott, leads the roster as a pre-selected athlete, while the likes of Ross Murdoch, Lucy Hope, Ross Murdoch, Mark Szaranek and Stephen Milne are headed to their third Commonwealth Games appearances.
Also named to the roster is Craig McNally, with the Scot bound for a 4th consecutive Commonwealth Games.
On the opposite end of the experience spectrum, 13 of the 24 swimmers are making their Games debut with 16-year-old Holly McGill representing the squad’s youngest member.
Elinor Middlemiss, Team Scotland Chef de Mission, said of the team, “We are delighted to welcome such a mix of experience and youth to Team Scotland with this exciting team of swimmers and divers.
“Aquatics is one of Scotland’s most successful Commonwealth Games sports and, with the new facility at Sandwell providing a great venue, I’m sure we can count on a fantastic atmosphere and tough competition in Birmingham.”
At the 2018 edition of the Commonwealth Games in the Gold Coast, Australia, the nation of Scotland finished 6th in the overall swimming medal table with 9 total medals. The sole gold came in the form of Scott’s podium-topping performance in the men’s 100m freestyle.
