AUDIO: Team Scotland’s Falkirk factor in the pool

Falkirk had a real influence over the Team Scotland 4x100 m swimming relay team.

Both Kieran McGuckin and Duncan Scott swam the final after Jack Thorpe had competed in the heats on Friday morning.

Scotland qualified as third fastest from the heats, setting a new record in the process with a swim of three minutes and 20 seconds.

And they shaved more time off that time in the Friday evening final - but it wasn’t enough to take the Commonwealth podium at Tollcross International Swimming Centre.

Former Falkirk Otter McGuckin swam the third leg behind Robbie Renwick and Richard Schafer and was followed home by Scott, who trains at Grangemouth.

McGuckin hailed the Glasgow crowd when he spoke to www.falkirkherald.co.uk after the final.
