The Flying Scott takes Silver at the IPC World Swimming Championships!

The Flying Scott takes Silver at the IPC World Swimming Championships!

Scott Quin continued this year's impressive form at the IPC World Swimming Championships at Tollcross Swimming Centre, Glasgow - with the man from Loanhead, Midlothian claiming silver and only losing out to the ever impressive Marc Evers from the Netherlands.

The Flying Scott qualified second fastest from the SB14 100m Breaststroke heats behind Dutch Swimmer Evers and this pattern was set to continue during the evening's final.  Quin, who was superbly welcomed poolside by his Warrender Baths Club colleagues and the majority of the partisan Tollcross crowd, looked great going into 50 meters where he lost some momentum on the turn and ultimately couldn't quite make the distance up - posting a time of 1.07.10 and touching at exactly the same time as current World Record holder, Yasuhiro Tanaka of Japan.  Quin, the current LDS Sports Person of the Year, was in great company on the podium for his first medal at World level and explained after the race, 'I'm feeling in the right place.  Everything is going good' before adding, 'To be honest, it is quite surreal to think how much I've came on being a late developer in the sport.'

The man with the lucky trunks will be hoping he gets the chance to wear them in Rio next year - it's all looking good!!
