duncanscottPerth swimmer Duncan Scott admitted to feeling the effects of a long season after narrowly missing out on a medal at the Youth Olympic Games in Bejing.

After helping Team GB’s mixed 4x100m freestyle team finish sixth on Sunday, Scott, 17, was back in the Nanjing water 24 hours later.

Scott’s impressive performance wasn’t quite enough to see him climb the podium, as the Strathallan School pupil finished fourth, just 0.82 seconds off bronze.

And in a season that has already seen him win Commonwealth Games 4x200m freestyle silver, Scott insists that he can feel everything starting to catch up with him.

“I have mixed emotions about that final and I don’t really know how to feel to be honest,” he said.

“I tried a different tactic and went out there a bit harder but it just didn’t quite work out.

duncanDuncan Scott has already had a year to remember, but the Alloa swimmer isn't about to take his foot off the pedal with the Youth Olympic Games fast approaching.

Scott was one of the stars that helped make Glasgow 2014 the most successful yet for the home nation, helping the 4x200m freestyle team take silver behind Australia. However the 17-year-old didn't have time to celebrate after being selected on Team GB's 33-strong squad heading to Nanjing for the Youth Olympic Games, the competition getting underway on August 16.

It is not the first time Scott will have swapped Scotland colours for Team GB's, having left last year's European Youth Olympic Festival in Holland with a gold and silver medal for his efforts. And despite having shone already this summer, Scott is adamant he is far from done just yet.
