Double Commonwealth champion David Carry has announced his retirement from swimming after ending his career at London 2012.

Aberdeen-born Carry, who made his international debut at the Commonwealth Games in Manchester in 2002, swam to a new personal best time to qualify for the Olympics where he competed in the final of the men's 400m freestyle.

"After 10 years in the sport, I am thrilled with how I performed at the Olympics - it was a fitting end to my career," said the 31-year-old.

Michael Scott, British Swimming national performance director, added: "I would like to congratulate David on a successful career for Great Britain on the Olympic and world stage and for Scotland at the Commonwealth Games.

"To be a three-time Olympian, double Commonwealth champion and multi-world and Olympic finalist are all outstanding achievements."
