ALLOA’S Duncan Scott claimed his third medal of the 2020 Olympic Games earlier today with a second silver medal.

Scott was pipped by China’s Wang Shun to the gold in the Men’s 200m Individual Medley at the Tokyo Aquatics Centre.

It's the third Tokyo 2020 Olympic medal for Scott after clocking in at 1:55.28 in the 200m individual relay.

The 24-year-old has shaved off .37 seconds to break his own record, however, missing out on gold today, the British swimmer didn't hide his disappointment.

He said: "I think initially [I felt] just really gutted.

“The times at this meet, and in an Olympic final almost go out the window for me.

"I haven't really had time to think about it a bit more and let it sink in.

"It's a massive personal best again. I've dropped over a second and a half in this event this year, and I'm still learning it a lot. But just not enough, again."

With a heat on Friday evening, Sunday morning could provide Scott with the chance to make history.

One more medal would make Scott the first Team GB athlete to win four medals at one Olympic Games.

He is already the first British swimmer to win three medals at one Olympic Games since Henry Taylor more than 100 years ago.
