Duncan Scott Chasing More Golden Days on Road to Paris; 100 Freestyle Could Be Future Target


Duncan Scott Chasing More Golden Days on Road to Paris; 100 Freestyle Could Be Future Target

Coming off a four-medal haul at the Olympic Games in Tokyo last summer, Duncan Scott joined the Inside With Brett Hawke Podcast to discuss his performances and what might be on the horizon. The British superstar was superb at the Games, as he secured a pair of individual silver medals (200 freestyle/200 individual medley) and fueled Great Britain to gold in the 800 freestyle relay and silver in the 400 medey relay.

As Scott chatted with Hawke, whose podcast has attracted many of the biggest names in the sport, he reviewed his status on the global stage and analyzed the 200 freestyle. The Scottish star also discussed his relationship with and the work he has done under the watch of coach Steve Tigg. Many more topics were covered with the six-time Olympic medalist, who has the Commonwealth Games later this year on the road to the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris.

At one point during the interview, Hawke had some fun with Scott concerning the 100 freestyle, as the two-time Australian Olympian and host tried to persuade Scott into tackling the event. Although Scott is best known for his current prowess in the 200 freestyle and 200 individual medley, he was fifth in the 100 free at the 2016 Olympics and owns the second-fastest 100 freestyle split in history at 46.14. Scott noted that while the event is not a current focus, it could garner his attention down the road.

The one question I wanted to hear was not asked. Tom Dean wins the 200 and yet 24 hours later leads off the 800 FR in a significantly slower time, beaten by several – thus depriving the team of the World Record. Duncan’s thoughts about his ‘mate’?
Just goes to show how an Olympic title is just who is best in one race on one day in 4 years and why they should not be used as a yardstick over longevity when comparing the career success of swimmers.
