Australian 4x100m mixed medley swim team win Commonwealth gold… while England secure bronze medal at the Sandwell Aquatics Centre

Australia picked up another gold medal at the 2022 Commonwealth Games after winning the 4x100m mixed medley on Tuesday evening.  

The team managed to win the final at the Sandwell Aquatics Centre despite the ongoing rumblings over the awkward love triangle within the Australian squad.

The gold medal-winning team consisted of Mathew Temple, Zac Stubblety-Cook, Kaylee McKeown and Emma McKeon – while Kyle Chalmers and Cody Simpson were omitted.

As a result of their success in the 4x100m mixed medley, Australia have now surpassed the 100-medal mark.  

Meanwhile, England – who managed to secure bronze during the hard-fought race on Tuesday evening – have reached 78 medals in total. 

Earlier in the day, McKeon won a record-equalling 18th Commonwealth Games medal despite being pipped to gold in the women’s 100m freestyle final by fellow Aussie Mollie O’Callaghan.

O’Callaghan was the shock winner of a race that saw a 1-2-3 Aussie finish, with Shayna Jack also finishing ahead of McKeon to win silver.

Nevertheless, McKeon took her tally of swimming medals at a single Commonwealth Games to six – one behind the record – as well as joining South Africa men’s star Chad le Clos on 18 Commonwealth medals.
