To finish off a sensational Commonwealth Games for our F-Teamers, Jack McLoughlin, a "star of the future" according to Kieren Perkins, made the swimming world sit up and pay attention with a Silver medal finish in the 400m freestyle and a Gold medal performance in the last individual race of the Games, the grueling 1500m freestlye. Jack lead for the entire race, from the first 50m until he touched the wall with a strong finish in a time of 14:47.09.
