The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “Moment Tom Dean and Duncan Scott claim one-two finish for Team GB in men’s 200m freestyle final” – below is their description.
Team GB have secured their first ever one-two finish in an Olympic swimming event for 113 years, with Tom Dean beating Tokyo flat-mate Duncan Scott to gold by 0.04 sec in a dramatic finale to the men’s 200m freestyle.
After the excitement of Magic Monday, the gold rush continued early on Tuesday morning with the swimmers adding their second gold medal of the Games to take Team GB’s tally to four after only four days of Olympic competition. It makes it the best ever start to a summer Olympics.
Dean had twice contracted Covid-19 earlier in the last year, including a “very severe” infection in January, and the 21-year-old’s extraordinary victory also makes him the first British man to win an individual freestyle swimming event since Henry Taylor at the London Olympics way back in 1908.
