The commonwealth games have been on in the Gold Coast and the streak of lined up activities have been really intriguing and fulfilling. Having athletes striving to make the best out of every round of the competition and having competitors celebrate victory all over the place has really been worthwhile and priceless.
Countries and their sports participants have been caught up in heated moments and athletes have been seen expressing emotions after victory in some cases.
There are outstanding performances so far in the games by some participants and one of such athlete is Duncan Scott of Scotland who finished second in the 200m individual medley, picking up his sixth medal so far in the Commonwealth Games.
The 20-year-old Scot has been awesome in bagging more medals than his Scottish counterparts. He won the 100m freestyle and has four bronze medals from the 200m freestyle, 200m butterfly, 4x100m freestyle and 4x200m freestyle and is said to be the most decorated Scottish athlete at a single Commonwealth Games.
Here’s what the excited athlete said after the race: “It was a great battle and a PB (personal best) as well, so I’m happy with that. It’s a tough event, one that I’m getting used to and getting better at.”
There were three Scots in the 200m individual medley final, with Mark Szaranek in fourth place and Dan Wallace sixth.
The Scot athlete finished the race in one minute 57.86 seconds, 0.21 secs behind Australia’s Mitch Larkin.
