GOLD, GOLD, GOLD! Aussies Dominate Pool On Day Two

Australia has surged to the top of the 2018 Commonwealth Games medal table after a dominant night in the swimming finals at the Optus Aquatic Centre.

The Aussie men and women claimed six Gold medals, four Silver and four Bronze throughout the night on Day Two.

The performances were capped off with a Gold medal winning effort by the Men's 4 x 100m Freestyle relay team.


Elsewhere it was a quinella in the final of the Men's 200m Freestyle, with Kyle Chalmers finishing first and Mack Horton in second.

In the Women's 100m Butterfly it was a clean sweep by the Aussies with Emma McKeon claiming Gold, Madelines Groves winning Silver and Bronze for Brianna Throssell.

Mitch Larkin won the Gold in the Men's 100m Backstroke, followed by Bradley Woodward in second, while Clyde Lewis was left breathless after taking Gold in the Men's 400m Individual Medley.

Meantime up at the Anna Meares Velodrome in Brisbane, Stephanie Morton stormed home to claim the Gold in the Women's Sprint, with Kaarle McCulloch Bronze.

While Matt Glaetzer won the Gold in the Men's Keirin, Rebecca Wiasak and Annette Edmonson finished with the Silver and Bronze medals respectively in the Women's 3000m Individual Pursuit, and Dylan Kennett Bronze in the Men's 4000m Individual Pursuit.

And in the weightlifting finals, Tia-Clair Toomey smashed out Gold in the 58kg class.
