The final night of swimming at the 2018 Commonwealth Games will see nine gold medals go on the line, with a pair of relays and the 1500-metre event headlining. Join The Roar for live scores and coverage from 7:30pm (AEST).
It will all get underway with another chance for Ariarne Titmus though. The young Australian middle and long distance swimmer claimed gold last night in the 800-metre final and will have another chance in the 400.
While it’ll be English duo Holly Hibbott and Eleanor Faulkner challenging her, Titmus is a clear favourite with a qualifying time which was a second better than either of her rivals.
The middle-distance race will be followed up by a pair of sprint events, with Englishman Benjamin Proud the favourite in the 50-metre freestyle race. He will be challenged by three Aussies, with Cameron McEvoy, James Magnussen and James Roberts all qualifying for the final, while Bradley Tandy will also be there.
Mitch Larkin, who picked up gold in the 50, 100 and 200-metre backstroke events will be aiming to add another when he turns out in the 200 IM. Tiredness may be a factor, but he has qualified in Lane 4, with 400 IM champion Clyde Lewis also in the race alongside Scotland’s Daniel Wallace.
Emily Seebohm will be aiming for redemption when she turns out in the women’s 50-metre freestyle. The Australian has missed out in both the 100 and 200-metre backstroke, but will have to overcome Georgia Davies and Kylie Maase in the final.
In the men’s 1500-metre race, Mack Horton will be the heavy favourite. The Olympic silver medalist doesn’t have to compete with China’s Sun Yang this time and based on personal best times alone, has a four-second advantage to Daniel Jervis and an eight-second advantage to Jack McLoughlin.
The 4×100-metre medley relays will wrap up swimming at the Commonwealth Games, with Australia heavy favourites in both events.
