O’Connor and Halsall land Commonwealth titles in Glasgow

27 July 2014

England’s Siobhan-Marie O’Connor and Francesca Halsall topped the podium with British records on day four of the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games.

O’Connor won her fifth medal and first gold of her debut Games in the 200m Individual Medley, slicing a second off her personal best to dominate the final.

The 18-year old ultimately clocked 2:08.21 to win gold by more than two seconds ahead of Australia’s world and Olympic silver medallist Alicia Coutts (2:10.30).

Scotland’s Hannah Miley – who defended the 400m Individual Medley title on the opening night in Glasgow – landed her second medal of the meet with bronze in 2:10.74.

Halsall became the first female swimmer to complete the Commonwealth 50m Freestyle and 50m Butterfly sprint double at a Games with victory in the latter.

The 24-year old lowered her British record to 25.20 to take the touch from the Bahamas’ Arianna Vanderpool Wallace (25.53) and win the 10th Commonwealth medal of her career.

The Scottish men’s 4x200m Freestyle Relay quartet of Daniel Wallace (1:47.37), Stephen Milne (1:47.17), Duncan Scott (1:47.18) and Robbie Renwick (1:47.46) set a national record 7:09.18 for silver while Liam Tancock (24.98) won 50m Backstroke bronze and 13-year old Erraid Davies (1:21.68) scooped bronze in the SB9 100m Breaststroke.
