Wellington swimmer Lewis Clareburt has won his second gold medal at the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham.

Clareburt finished first in the 200 butterfly this morning, a race he hadn’t initially intended to enter.

Clareburt had to come from behind to beat former Olympic and defending Commonwealth Games champion, Chad le Clos of South Africa with …. James Guy of England third.

He was fourth after 100 metres and third at the final turn.

“Surprising to be honest, I didn’t think that would happen tonight,” he said afterwards.
