A local swimmer has made history on the Gold Coast with his sixth medal win at the 2018 Commonwealth Games.

Former Strathallan School pupil Duncan Scott has bagged a silver Down Under, this time in the 200m individual medley.

Scott won a gold in the 100m freestyle on Sunday in what was a remarkable day for Scottish athletes.

He secured his fifth medal of the Games only a few hours later in the men’s 4x200m freestyle relay.

Scott, of Stirling, is now the most medalled Scottish athlete at a Commonwealth Games ever.

Speaking to BBC Sport after the race, Scott seemed disappointed at getting “so close” to a second gold on Tuesday, having missed out to fellow competitor Mitch Larkin of Australia.

He added: “That was a great battle. There was a lot of people in there that could have won that. It was exhausting. I enjoyed that but it was really tough.”

Fifer Mark Szaranek finished fourth in the 200m individual medley.

Scott narrowly missed an opportunity to take his medal haul to seven later on Tuesday with Team Scotland finishing fourth in the 4x100m medley relay alongside Szaranek, Ross Murdoch and Craig McNally.

However, the swimmers managed to set a new Scottish record in the event.

Elsewhere Aberdonian Neil Stirton bagged a silver medal for his efforts in the men’s 50m rifle prone shooting in Australia on Tuesday.

There were also bronze medals for Ian Shaw and Sandy Walker in the fullbore rifle pairs shooting event.

And Perth’s Eilidh Doyle is through to the 400m hurdles final after winning her heat earlier today.

Team Scotland no
