In detail

The twin misfortunes of losing his hair when he was 10 years and being dyslexic spurred Duncan on to becoming Olympic Champion. His sporting career continued after his retirement from swimming when he represented Great Britain in the 2-man and 4-man bobsleigh teams at the European Championships. Duncan's success with the BT Swimathon is well known. From its inception in 1988, Swimathon has raised over £10 million for worthwhile causes and is one of BT's most successful sponsorship campaigns. Since 1993, Duncan has been working with children to help develop youth programmes to create healthy lifestyles.
