Commonwealth Games – Swimming highlights

Australia has finished the swimming in the commonwealth games on a historic high.  The final night of swimming saw Australia take home eight gold, one silver and four bronze medals, and another four Commonwealth Games records.

Ariarne Titmus took the first Games record of the evening in the 400m freestyle, followed by Mitch Larkin in the men’s 200m individual medley.

Our women’s 4 x 100m medley relay team came out on top in a very exciting race against Canada, with Bronte Campbell securing gold and a new Games record for Australia as the last leg of the relay in a thrilling duel against Canada.

Our men’s 4 x 100m medley relay team then finished the evening with gold and another Games record, with Kyle Chalmer’s edging out England in a fantastic freestyle finish.

An amazing end to a historic week of swimming, with a total of 73 medals – 28 gold, 21 silver and 21 bronze.

Huge congratulations to all of our swimmers, the best ever results by Australian swimmers in the entire Commonwealth Games!
