ALLOA’s Duncan Scott has been named in Team GB’s Olympics squad for the Tokyo games this year and insists his own expectations are greater than external pressure.

Duncan will look to add more Olympic medals to his tally at the games which will run from July 23 until August 8.

University of Stirling-based Scott won two relay silver medals on his Olympic debut at Rio 2016 and will be a strong favourite to feature on the podium again in Japan.

But while much is expected of Scott after recently winning three titles at the British Swimming Selection Trials, he’s not worried about what anyone else thinks.

He said: “My internal expectations are far greater than any external pressure that anyone can put on me so it’s the same, I go in with the same attitude as I did in 2016.

“Obviously my PBs are a little bit quicker and I’m a little bit older, thankfully now at the end of my university degree so I’d say for me, my approach is pretty similar.

“I have a little less spots on my face but other than that I would say I’m pretty similar in the sense of the attitude that I’ll go into races and the things I want to try and achieve.

“Fortunately I have got a couple more events but I have a lot more experience since the last time I was at an Olympics but I’m just going there to enjoy it, it’s the pinnacle of our sport.

“I absolutely loved it the last time so I’m really looking forward to it. That’s why I swim, I swim because I enjoy it and I love competing on the international stage and racing the best athletes.

“I’d say that’s priority number one and then priority number two is to go there and swim well, swim fast, there’s things I want to achieve in each of the events that I’m doing.”
