Top Scottish swimmer Ross Murdoch, who is sponsored by ACT Construction (UK) Ltd , is just days away from competing in the European Championships 2018 in Glasgow.

He will take part in the 200m, 100m and 50m men’s breaststroke events. His first race is tomorrow in the 100m. Ross will be defending his 200m breast-stroke title.

We caught up with Ross, who lives in Stirling, last week, who told us he is feeling “pretty good for the competition”.

He added: ”I am really happy with my preparation and feeling set to go next week.

“It is going to be hard to defend the title but I am looking forward to giving my best on the day.”

According to stats, Ross is ranked second in the 200m based on his time in Budapest last year and third this year.

He said: “I am going to stick to the race plan I have and I believe I will be good. I don’t want to over think it and I want enjoy the championships in my home country.

“It’s getting really exciting and the buzz is definitely building in Glasgow. I am going to let the crowd bring me home and not take me out.”

Ross won bonze in the 100m breaststroke final at the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games.


We wish Ross all the best in his races and we will be following his results throughout Glasgow 2018.
