Raised in the Central Queensland town of Rockhampton, Duncan Armstrong rose to national and international fame at the Seoul Olympics in 1988, when he broke the world record to win the Gold medal in the 200 metres freestyle.

Duncan formed a winning relationship with madcap coach Laurie Lawrence which spanned 10 years and collected Gold at the Commonwealth Games, Pan Pacific championships and numerous National and International competitions.

During his stellar career Duncan also won a host of honours out of water including Young Australian of the Year, and an Order of Australia Medal.

After representing Australia at two Olympic Games, Duncan retired the pool in 1993 to pursue a career in media and corporate coaching. Duncan is currently contracted with Fox Sports and presents all their swimming coverage. Athens 2004 will be Duncan's third Olympics as a commentator and he's set to bring you all the action poolside with Radio 2GB.

Duncan faces the future with his usual energetic youthfulness, and promises to deliver on every facet of his career. Media commitments will keep him well and truly in the limelight, whilst he will be continuing to develop great corporate and community programs with his long-term business partners Westpac Banking Corporation and Telstra.
