Scotland at the Paris Olympics 2024: 12 Scottish athletes tipped for medal success at the summer Olympics

These are the Scots who will be dreaming of gold in Paris.

More than 10,000 of the word’s greatest athletes are bound for France to take part in this year’s Summer Olympics - taking place from July 26-August 11.

They’ll be competing in a total of 329 events across 32 sports, including breakdancing which is making its games debut.

In the last Olympics Scottish athletes won 16 of Team GB’s 65 medals, with Duncan Scott, Katie Archibald, Kathleen Dawson, Jack Carlin, Angus Groom, Harry Leask, Neah Evans, Laura Muir, Anna Burnet, Sarah Robertson, and Josh Kerr all taking podium places.

That included three gold medals - for Duncan Scott in the 4x200m freestyle relay, Katie Archibald in the women’s madison, and Kathleen Dawson in the mixed 4x100 metre medley relay.

Here are 12 of Scotland’s best medal hopes for this summer.
