Back A Rising Star:

ROSS MURDOCH really announced himself on the scene of international Breaststroke with his stand out performance at the Commonwealth Games in 2014 and he backed up his title by winning world bronze in Kazan in the summer of 2015.

2015 saw Murdoch have another strong season at the top level of British Swimming, culminating with a bronze medal at the World Champioinships in Russia in the men’s 100m Breaststroke. Earlier in the season Murdoch claimed three medals the domestic champs in London, including silver in the 50m and 100m Breaststroke events.

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.

He topped the podium again in 2013 at the British Championships with a win the 100m breaststroke and a bronze in the 50m breast, both in new Scottish record times. A month later, Murdoch made his senior international debut at the World Championships in Barcelona, reaching the semi-finals of the 100m Breaststroke.

The Scot made his first breakthrough in 2012, reaching the 200m Breaststroke final at the British Gas Swimming Championships courtesy of a seven-second personal best at London Aquatics Centre. His 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.
