Scott Quin

"I am pleased to be an Ambassador because I would like to support athletes with learning disability and help them work with their coaches so their coaches can learn how to work with a mainstream athlete and a learning disability athlete. So they can have more insight on how a learning disability brain works compared to a mainstream athlete."

Midlothian S14 swimmer Scott is a British Champion and IPC World and European silver medallist in 100m Breaststroke.

In 2014, Scott won 100m Breaststroke silver (1:07.95) at the IPC Swimming European Championships in Eindhoven. This summer, he wowed his home crowd by winning another silver (1:07.99) on the opening day of the World Championships in Glasgow.

Scott was inspired to start swimming by his brother when he was seven years-old and has never looked back. He made his breakthrough in 2011 at the British Swimming Championships in Manchester.

In 2012, he won bronze (1:11.82) in the London Aquatic Centre at the British Nationals. He has since gone onto gain international medals and hold an unbeaten British Record of 1:07.45.

After another incredible year, Scott was confirmed as one of 22 elite swimmers on the British Para Swimming Podium Programme for 2016. He now has the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games in his sights.

Scott’s second passion is lawn bowls and when he retires he would like to put more time into lawn bowls to see how good he can get.

Scott would also like to work with organisations to help future athletes, including swimmers with disabilities to get involved.
