“One of the most exciting things, with me being an older member of the team, is the younger athletes coming through,” he said.

“There are some young athletes that could really make themselves household names, it’s  exciting to unearth some genuine superstars.”

There were scattered showers throughout the evening, but the steady trickle of Gold Medals kept the crowd at the Gold Coast Aquatic Centre excited.

Earlier in the night, Clyde Lewis won Gold in the 400m Individual Medley and Mitch Larkin took top honours in the Men’s 100m Backstroke.

Timothy Disken managed to take the top spot in the Men’s S9 100m Freestyle para-race.

S9 is the classification for para-athletes with severe weaknesses or amputations in the legs.

In the women’s 100m Butterfly the Aussies had a clean sweep on the podium with Emma McKeon taking Gold, Maddie Groves winning Silver and Brianna Throssell getting the Bronze medal.
