Duncan moves to TLA with Rob Woodhouse.

After a few weeks off swimming Duncan moved back to training full time in October.

He had a busy time on his return from Rio. The end of August he and teammate Dan Wallace turned up at the National Hockey Centre as part of the Team GB encouraging kids into sport.

He visited Redwell Primary School, Kilmaurs Primary, Larbert High and Strathallan.

The 2016 Games opened on the 5th August, and by Sunday 7th Adam Peaty had broken his world record and won gold in the 100m Breastroke. Team mate Jazz Carlin had also bagged silver.

August 9th

Duncan’s Olympics started two days later.

Buoyed by those fantastic wins he broke his own personal best, the Scottish record and British record to secure a place in the 100 Freestyle Semi - finals.

Later that session he swam final leg in the 4 x 200 freestyle relay with all his team mates from the 4 x 200 Commonwealth Games silver medal winning Scottish team of 2014. They won their heat breaking the Scottish record (4.06.31) and were fastest into the final. All knew the team would change for the evening finals bringing in James Guy.

The evening session started with Duncan racing for a place in the 100 free final. He made it. An extraordinary accomplishment making him the first British swimmer in a 100 Freestyle final since 1968.
