Biography

Robert Duncan was the winner of the 1912 Scottish Olympic Trials at 100 and 200 and Scottish champion at 100 y (1909-10) and 220y (1910-11). His four victories (1908, 1910-12) at 220 y in the Scotland vs. Ireland international match indicate that he was rather better over the longer sprint.

Personal Bests: 100y – 10.2 (1910); 100 – 11.4 (1908); 200 – 22.2 (1912).
