Friday he progressed well to the finals where he broke 2 age group records. The 400 Freestyle record was held by his Stirling University team mate since 2007.

November 13 - 15th 2015
Duncan headed to Sheffield for the British Universities and Colleges Competition at Ponds Forge.
Friday night was a test of fitness with a 1500. Duncan finished 4th.
Duncan flew out to Doha in mid-October to train at altitude with a variety of Stirling University teammates. They were joined by members of the British team including Jimmy Guy and Cameron Kurle.
3rd of October was a busy day for Duncan. He trained in the morning and then set off for Manchester to be at the inaugural British Swimming awards. There was an expectation that those athletes with funding should be there. As he was unable to attend the Commonwealth Games Awards his parents were delighted to accept on his behalf. (10 years+ of driving to training and competitions – pay back )
At the moment Nigel Scott took to the stage to accept the Sir Peter Heatly trophy for the Young Sportsperson of the year from Hazel Irvine a text came through to say ‘Duncan was been awarded the emerging athlete of the year at the British Swimming awards’
