That the Parliament congratulates the University of Stirling’s Duncan Scott on being one of four swimmers who have been pre-selected to participate in the 2021 Tokyo Olympics; praises both Duncan and the University of Stirling for this magnificent achievement; notes the many accolades and accomplishments that Duncan has already earned in the sport of swimming, which includes becoming the most decorated swimmer ever at a Commonwealth Games after finishing Gold Coast 2018 with six medals to his name, and welcomes this acknowledgment of his continued hard work, commitment and international standing as a highly accomplished athlete.
