And while fans at the Gold Coast Aquatic Centre sang the national anthem of Australia on six occasions, the success wasn't limited to the pool, with cyclists Stephanie Morton and Matthew Glaetzer and weightlifter Tia-Clair Toomey also triumphing on a night when Australia surged to the top of the medal tally.
