Australia Day: 4×100 Quartet Deliver 5th Gold & 9th Medal Of Day For The Dolphins

Australia 4x100m quartet celebrate - Kyle Chalmers in the water and (l-r) Jack Cartwright, James Magnussen and Cameron McEvoy - Commonwealth Team Australia

There was never any doubt – barring a false start – that Australia would win the last race of day 2, it being the 4x100m freestyle and the home quartet having a 47sec swim each between them from a standing start and that, at least in textile, a first for any nation.

What couldn’t have been known until the session panned out was that Cameron McEvoy (48.91), James Magnussen (48.09) Jack Cartwright (47.71) and Kyle Chalmers, on 48.25 for a combined 3:12.96 triumph after his 1:45 win in the solo 200m final earlier, would be collecting Australia’s fifth gold and ninth medal of the day.
