Gold for Australia at Rio 2016

Day 1 – Rio 2016

Australia has had a very good day, winning gold in the pool x 2 and taking down superpowers China and the United States.

1. Mack Horton

With his spectacles on right out of the pool, Mack Horton is an instant national hero, winning gold in the 400 meters freestyle final.

He defeats rival, China’s Sun Yang. The Clark Kent lookalike is in instant international hit.

2. Australia’s Golden Girls 4 x 100

The team of sisters Cate and Bronte Campbell, Emma McKeon and Brittany Elmslie smashed the world record in the pool, defeating the United States handily. Smashed them like guitars.

We’re number one on the medal tally!
