Ross Murdoch’s first taste of elite competition came at the 2013 World Championships in Barcelona where he raced in the 50m and 100m breaststroke as well as the 4x100m medley relay.
His real breakthrough came a year later when he took 100m breaststroke bronze and 200m breaststroke gold for Scotland at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.
He won World 4x100m mixed medley gold with Great Britain in Kazan in 2015 and picked up an individual bronze in the 100m.
At Rio 2016, he just missed out on qualifying for the final, finishing ninth overall in the 100m breaststroke.
Murdoch enjoyed a successful 2016 European Championships in London, claiming golds in the 200m breaststroke and 4x100m medley, as well as silver in the 100m and bronze in the 50m before a silver in the 4x100m medley in the 2017 World Championships in Budapest.
