After waiting 16 years for a male Kiwi swimmer to claim a Commonwealth Games gold medal, the next one arrived in less than 24 hours. Then another 20 minutes later.

Lewis Clareburt wasted no time in doubling his triumphant tally, winning gold in the 200m butterfly final in Birmingham.

Joshua Willmer also made it a special day for New Zealand in the pool winning gold in the men's 100m Breaststroke SB8 final shortly after Clareburt's victory.

Tupou Neiufi won silver in the women's 100m Backstroke S8 final with world champion Alice Tai taking the gold.

Meanwhile, Corbin Strong secured New Zealand's sixth track-cycling gold medal at the Commonwealth Games in the men's 15km Scratch Race.

Finally, the sevens teams don't leave Birmingham empty-handed with bronze medal victories.

Congratulations to all our athletes!
