Lauren Boyle wins gold in 400m freestyle
Swimmer Lauren Boyle has turned the tables on Wales' Jazz Carlin to win the gold medal in the women's 400m freestyle at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.
Boyle clocked a Games record of 4 minutes 04.47 seconds to beat Carlin by 0.69s on Tuesday night.
Third was Australian Bronte Barrett.
In the 800m final the previous night, Carlin pushed Boyle into second place after a titanic battle.
In the 400m, it was Barratt who led early before Boyle upped the pace at the 150m mark.
The 26-year-old Aucklander, who had been the fastest qualifier from the morning's heats, pulled in front and was never headed again.
It is her fourth Commonwealth medal, after a silver in Delhi and a bronze in Melbourne in relay events.
