Scott opened his account well in the Olympic Games qualifying round, launching the big metal ball 19.75m. However, two fouls followed and Scotts 2008 Olympic campaign was over, finishing 10th in Group A with only one valid attempt.

At the 2009 world titles Scott recorded a best distance of 19.52m to place 25th overall, missing out on a berth in the final.

Brief artist background notes: (extracted from "Artist has brush with thieves", MacArthur Advertiser, January 2004)Currans Hill artist Phil Carrero started as an impressionable 16 year old drawing charcoal portraits through the streets of Buenos Aires. He worked his way up from drawing to painting and begun to sell his works around that time.Coming to Australia in 1973 , at the age of 23, Mr Carrero continued his studies in Art and completed an apprenticeship for four months to get himself better acquainted with portraiture painting. Meanwhile, for almost ten years produced and sold ma ny ship portraits and marine paintings.-After that I begun getting around 12 commissions a year for just portraits. That's the point when I begun to make a living out of painting-, he said.He paints in the Traditional, Realistic style ... English and Italian schools, his portraits can resemble, by petition, the Grand Manner style of the 19th and 20th centuries in England and later, America.His paintings can be categorized into the following areas: * A Portrait of Sculpture * Australian Actress * Church * Drawings * Historical and Archival. * Landscapes * People * Pole Vault * Seascapes * Sporting Heroes stolen. * Still Life
