No sooner had Emily Seebohm caught her breath after gold in the 50m back than her sweetheart Mitch Larkin gave her another reason to be cheerful by adding a fourth gold at these Games to his own vault: a 1:57.67 Games-record victory made Larkin the golden boy of the Gold Coast gathering: each win a solo one, with the medley relay to come promising a fifth gold to leave no doubt. Scot Duncan Scott collected his sixth medal of the Games in 1:57.86 to ensure that, whatever happens in the medley relay, he will emerge from these Games the most medalled among men. Bronze went to the hosts, too, Clyde Lewis, the 400IM champion, on 1:58.18.
