Commonwealth Games: Ariarne Titmus sees off challenge from Mollie O’Callaghan to win 200m freestyle gold medal

Swimming sensation Ariarne Titmus survived a mighty scare from her Australian Dolphins teammate Mollie O’Callaghan to secure her first gold medal of the Commonwealth Games.

The dual Tokyo gold medallist overcame a monumental challenge from O’Callaghan to set a new games record in the 200m freestyle of 1:53.89.

Just 0.12 seconds separated the duo at the finish line, with O’Callaghan matching Titmus’ last 50m stroke for stroke and even pulling alongside her, threatening to steal victory.
