Cate Campbell to sprint for gold on day five of Comm Games

Cate Campbell will be hoping to secure another gold medal when she competes in the women’s 100m freestyle today at the Commonwealth Games.

The 25-year-old has already won three gold medals – the 50m freestyle, 50m butterfly and 4x100m freestyle relay – and is likely to win another this evening after she broke the Games record in the semifinal (52.64).

Campbell’s biggest competition is Canadian Taylor Ruck who is the second fastest qualifier and has won gold in the 200m freestyle, as well as four silver medals and a bronze.


Another Aussie female hoping to secure gold in the pool today is Ariane Titmus in the final of the women’s 800m freestyle.

Titmus already has a silver medal from the 200m freestyle on Thursday and a relay gold medal.

Nine gold medals will be awarded at the Optus Aquatic Centre today – the second last day of the swimming competition at the Games.
