No stopping our champ Kyle

10 April 2018

CHAMPION Kyle Chalmers again delivered big time in the pool with three gold medals and a silver at the Commonwealth Games despite not being able to shrug off a persistent cold and a niggling back ailment.

Chalmers, 19, enjoyed an outstanding Games. He won gold in the men's 200m, men's 4 X 200m free and 4 X 100m and then shared silver with Chad Le Clos in just going under in the men's 100m to Duncan Scott of Scotland.

But Chalmers wasn't about to make excuses for his narrow defeat in the 100m final, preferring to focus on other rising stars.

Ever the team player, Chalmers was keen to talk about the prospects of the relay teams heading towards the Tokyo Olympics in 2020.

''To come out here and break the Games' record with these boys is awesome,'' Chalmers said.

''We have a good couple of years coming up. Hopefully we can stick together as a team and really do something special in Tokyo.''

Chalmers was expected to line up in the 4 X 100m medley final to finish his Games' campaign.

Chalmers is regarded as one of the superstars of Australian sport. He is a SASI scholar and trains under SASI head swimming coach Peter Bishop at the Marion club.
