Olympic swimmer, Dan Wallace from Duns, is preparing to return to Scotland after winning a silver medal in the men's freestyle relay.
The swimmer helped Team GB win their first medal in the event since 1984.
They came second to team USA, which included Olympic legend Michael Phelps.
It definitely gives me some self confidence and really motivates me to keep going and keep pursuing my dreams. To have this medal, it just means the world to me so I'm definitely excited about the future."

Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs has spoken of his love of the Lake District in an interview about life after football.
He told the Sunday Times newspaper that he's been enjoying some downtime after 30 years at Manchester United.
As well as planning trips to visit various clubs abroad, the Welshman also described his love of walking.
He said, "I've done the Lake District, the Yorkshire Three Peaks..I'd like to go abroad and do different stuff."
With Olympic fever sweeping Great Britain, a sailing club has been running training sessions aimed at encouraging people to take up the sport.
The Annandale centre is based at Lochmaben's Castle Loch. Its chief instructor says the Games is the perfect time to take to the water:
"The children have been watching the results and things and we've been talking about the Olympic sailors who have come from this sort of background, learning to sail in boats just like these who are now sailing for medals in Rio".

Great Britain's Lauren Smith - who hails from Longtown - and Heather Olver are out of the women's doubles badminton after being beaten by Indonesian pair Nitya Krishinda Maheswari and Greysia Polii.
That's their second defeat of the competition and with the top two pairs progressing, it ends their hopes in Rio with one game to play.
Carlisle United get their home league campaign underway tomorrow when Plymouth Argyle visit Brunton Park.
The Blues have had an encouraging start to the season with a one-all draw away to Portsmouth last Saturday followed by a midweek win in the League Cup.
The manager is expecting another keenly fought contest:
I think it'll be a very aggressive, confrontational encounter with two teams where neither sets of players are going to go on the back foot. I think both teams want to play attacking football and I think the games that I've seen them play so far are very competitive, very aggressive from set-pieces - not too dissimilar to ourselves.
Dan Wallace is through to the 200m individual medley final at the Rio Olympics.
He'll be facing Michael Phelps, who will be in pursuit of his 22nd Olympic gold.
Wallace, who grew up in Duns, is the fifth fastest qualifier with 1min 57.97second qualifying time.
