WEE COUNTY hero Duncan Scott has made Commonwealth Games history after winning an incredible five medal’s at this year’s Gold Coast games.

The 20-year-old has now become a record-breaker as he is now the only Scot to have won five medals at one Commonwealth Games, eclipsing Gregor Tait’s record of four which he won in Melbourne in 2006.

In a raw display of power and speed at the back end of the race, the Alloa man delivered a truly superb swim to cap off an already successful week for himself and his team.

Turning in 6th place, the Alloa man shot through the field, timing his charge to perfection to take the first ever gold by a Scottish athlete in this event.

He finished with a time of 48.02, beating the Olympic Champion and home crowd favourite, Kyle Chalmers in the process.

After winning the gold, he said: “I’m absolutely delighted. Today was about executing my own race and doing the job I knew that I could do and put in a performance that would deliver.

"There are so many different ways of swimming the 100m Freestyle as you could see in that final. I just focused on what I know I’m good at and bring it back strong."

The University of Stirling student then won a bronze with the 4x200 relay team to add to the three other bronzes he earned earlier in the games.

He added: “I’ve not given any thought to my own medal count. That’s the second medal I’ve picked up in relay events so my medal tally wouldn’t be what it is without the support of a number of other athletes.

“There are a lot more events to come and I think we can carry that momentum on and challenge for more medals in the final two days.”

The delighted Scott also told BBC Sport: "I'm absolutely delighted my family's here. It's a dream for me for them to see that. I'm so happy.

"So far, so good. It's very exciting for two years' time after beating the Olympic champion. I'm delighted to swim that fast."

Scott could yet add two more gongs to his haul with the 200m individual medley and the 4x100 relay medley to come tomorrow.

Elsewhere, Seonaid McIntosh claimed 5th place in the Women's 10m Air Rifle Finals.

The Dollar woman will join her sister Jennifer in the Women's 50m Rifle Prone Finals later this week.
