Ross Murdoch has made remarkable progress since making the 200m Breaststroke final at his British Gas Swimming Championships debut courtesy of a seven-second personal best at London Aquatics Centre.
The Scot's performance in London earned him a spot on the team for the 2012 European Junior Championships in Antwerp where he continued his progress with silvers over 50m and 200m Breaststroke.
The following season, he topped the podium again, winning 100m Breaststroke gold and 50m Breast bronze, both in Scottish records, at the British Gas Swimming Championships in Sheffield.
A month later, Murdoch made his senior international debut at the World Championships in Barcelona, reaching the semi-finals of the 100m Breaststroke.
In 2014, Murdoch truly underlined his status as a world class performer, winning 200m Breaststroke gold and 100m Breaststroke bronze for Scotland on his Commonwealth debut at Glasgow 2014, then adding silver over both 100m and 200m Breast at his European debut in Berlin the following month.
