Duncan Scott was the standout performer of the 2019 British Swimming Championships as he walked away with three gold medals and two silvers in a successful week of competition.
The event was held at Tollcross International Swimming Centre, where the LEN European Short Course Swimming Championships will take place later this year.
The University of Stirling swimmer proved unbeatable in his preferred freestyle events, while also adding a medley title and a pair of butterfly medals.
The pick of the performances came in the 100m freestyle, with Scott breaking the British record as he touched home in 47.87 to announce himself as one of the very best in the world.

Scott also enjoyed a friendly rivalry with James Guy over the course of the week and while Guy got the better of him in both fly events, Scott took home the 200m freestyle.
Elsewhere Adam Peaty was a class apart in the breaststroke events, winning both the 50m and 100m, while James Wilby took home the 200m after silver in the 100m.
On the women’s side, both Georgia Davies and Alys Thomas were in fine form as they took 50m and 100m golds in the backstroke and butterfly respectively.
Meanwhile Freya Anderson broke a British age group record in the 100m freestyle on her way to the title and Aimee Willmott emerged victorious on the opening night in the 400m medley.
Finally, there was double glory for Dan Jervis in the 400m and 1500m freestyle, the latter a particularly impressive swim as he touched home in 14:46.51.
