The local swimmer took up the sport when he was 10-years-old following leg surgery and has barely looked back.

Out of the pool, Carter took part in the Queen' s baton relay ahead of the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, carrying the baton for his school, Bell Baxter High School.

Before the Covid-19 pandemic caused disruption to sport, the swimmer set a new Scottish record in the 50 fly at the Edinburgh International meet.
