New Commonwealth Games champion Olivia Breen overcame two fouls from her opening efforts to comfortably win the women’s T38 long jump final.
The 2017 world champion, this time competing in the colours of Wales, finally got on the board in the third round with a jump of 4.56m.
As it turned out, that would have been enough to secure her the title but the 21-year-old kept pushing and improved that mark to 4.86m with her sixth and final attempt.
That represented a new personal best and Commonwealth Games record and saw her top the podium by half a metre from Australia’s Erin Cleaver and Taylor Doyle.
“I’m over the moon to become Commonwealth champion. A massive thank you to my coach Aston Moore, my family and friends and the fantastic support from Team Wales. Thank you, Australia you’re amazing.”
Breen’s victory has taken Wales’ Gold Coast 2018 gold medal tally up to three – and eighth overall in the medals table – with six more days of the competition to come.
