Maisie Summers-Newton took gold and Grace Harvey silver in the women’s 100m breaststroke SB6 final.

The gold medalist said, “I’m really, really happy. After the World Championships, it’s a pretty tight deadline, only five weeks. Worlds was definitely our main focus, but coming here and getting gold is what I wanted to do.

“It’s a bit of a shame that we didn’t have the playoffs this morning. It would have been great to show the crowd what Para swimmers can do even more, but just to come here in front of a home crowd and get a gold and silver medal is amazing.

Nick Brett surpasses his ‘Wonderbowl’ to win Commonwealth gold for England

String quartet covers and polite applause aren’t the usual England v Australia soundtrack.

We’re used to seeing bitter battles unfold in hostile environments like the Homebush or the Gabba, where no Poms are welcome.

The scenic surroundings of Victoria Park in Leamington Spa, the spiritual home of lawn bowling, was the setting for the latest iteration of the rivalry as England’s Nick Brett, Louis Ridout and Jamie Chestney won gold in the men’s triple at the Games of the Commonwealth.

You’d be hard-pressed to find three guys more consistent than these three.

The comparison to their Australian counterparts was stark – all bleached blonde hair, a tradition for reigning Commonwealth champions – which wouldn’t look out of place in Bondi.

There’s nothing normal about Brett’s ability to create scoring chances and bend the bias to his will.

He was the latest man to send the sport viral, with his ‘Wonderbowl’ being watched by millions within hours in 2019.

The 48-year-old official had shots at Leamington Spa that far surpassed that bowl which saw him dubbed the ‘Brad Pitt of Bowls’, and now Brett hopes he will be better known as the gold medalist of the Commonwealth.

Adam Peaty didn’t seem too worried about whether or not he had won gold in the 50m breaststroke, pointing out that he was still in the early stages of his recovery work and the goal was Paris 2024. He also noted his frustration with the tee shot taking too long.

“I’m still a second away. They really need to do something about this departure, I’m not one to complain, but it’s getting ridiculous now. We’re on this block for 50m, and you’re like that. And you’re never held that long anywhere. We just have to adapt to that, hopefully tomorrow will be a bit better,” he said.

“It’s just a 50m breaststroke [final tomorrow], I’m not going to think about it too much. It’s a swim length. It’s not amazing but it’s not bad either.

“It will probably be my last attempt tomorrow [at this race in the Commonwealth Games]. I do not care. In the grand scheme of things, it’s about two years [at the Olympics]. It’s not disrespect [to here] but… I’m still four weeks into my program, so I can’t expect too much from myself.
