Corrie Scott

2019 Inductee

Making a splash at her first Commonwealth Games aged 17, Corrie Scott has since established a glittering swimming career, full of national records, prominent titles and three Commonwealth Games, including a medal in Glasgow 2014.

A prodigious junior, Corrie’s first Commonwealth Games was in Delhi 2010 before coming to the University to study Chemistry and joining our fledgling Performance Swimming Programme. She has since established herself as one of Scotland’s most decorated, successful, and enduring female breast-stroke swimmers.

At the 2014 Glasgow Commonwealth Games, Corrie gave the home crowd something to shout about as she secured a magnificent bronze medal in the 50m breast-stroke in what would become a longstanding Scottish record time of 30.64 seconds. She also reached the final in the 100m breast-stroke and the 4x100 medley relay.

Corrie returned to the Games in 2018, this time on Australia’s Gold Coast, competing in the 50m and 100m breast-stroke events, and claiming a fifth-place finish in the 4x100m medley relay in another Scottish record time.

Corrie also holds several other prominent records over the shortcourse and long-course events in 50m and 100m breast-stroke, and the 4x100m Medley relay. On top of this, she is a serial winner at Scottish national level with 20 individual titles, as well as earning a string of medals at British Championships and British Universities and Colleges Sport (BUCS) events.

Throughout her career as a Scottish and GB international, Corrie was a vital member of the University’s Performance Swimming Programme before announcing her retirement from the sport in 2018. During her tenure she received the Eva Bailey Cup for the University’s Female Athlete of the Year in 2014, and a University Blue in 2017.
