In a relatively off day at the 2018 Commonwealth Games, South Africa’s Chad le Clos gave spectators a show by closing off the fifth finals session with a swift 50.65 in the 100 fly. This lowered le Clos’ own CWG record and earned him the gold ahead of England’s James Guy (51.31).

Aussie duo of Grant Irvine (51.50) and David Morgan (51.94) touched third and fourth, respectively.

Scotland’s Sean Campsie took eighth in a 53.51.
