Hurrah for Henri as Schoeman grabs Games gold

Team South Africa got off to a golden Commonwealth Games start as Henri Schoeman won the men’s triathlon event on Thursday’s first day of competition, writes MARK ETHERIDGE in Gold Coast, Australia.

Schoeman shrugged off a dreadful start to his year, when he was incorrectly accused of doping at the Rio Olympics, and stood proud after a consummate victory in the men’s triathlon.

The tiny Durbanite dominated the 750-metre swim, 20km cycle and 5km run from start to finish, winning in 52min 31sec – seven seconds clear of local favourite Jake Birtwhistle.

GOLD! Third gold in the pool for @TeamSA18 on the night as @chadleclos breaks the Commonwealth Games record that he'd set in 2014 with a 50.65 performance. That's his 3rd gold to go with a silver

GOLD! And another one! @TRSchoenmaker smashes the African record and wins her 2nd gold of the Games with a 1:06.41. That's the 100/200 double and @pennyheyns record from 1999 now falls too #TeamMzansi

van den berg won in 26.58 did not get the games record. adam peaty still holds the games record at 26.48 i watched it live. i think the commentator got a bit excited and announced games record when it wasn't.
