Cate’s sister Bronte Campbell won silver in the event, tying with Canadian Taylor Ruck in 24.26. Ruck’s swim broke the Canadian Record.
Cate now has a pair of gold medals here on the Gold Coast, anchoring the Aussie women to a world record in the 400 free relay on night 1. She’ll look to add to her collection in the 50 fly, 100 free and 400 medley relay later in the meet.
