The Area would like to congratulate local hero Daniel Tranter on breaking the Commonwealth Games Record on the way to winning gold in the 200m IM in a time of 1:57.83.

The SMH wrote on 30 July 2014:
Commonwealth Games gold medallist Daniel Tranter's says everything in his life has pointed towards the swimming pool. From the day when as a young child he almost drowned when he jumped into a pool at a friend's birthday party and was saved by his mother Leanne, to being another asthma sufferer who has turned to swimming for exercise and, according to his own admission, being hopeless at any other sport that required hand-eye coordination.

Tranter however on Tuesday night won the 200m individual medley became Australia's final individual gold medallist of an incredibly successful campaign in the pool resulting in 57 medals, including 19 gold.
 
The unheralded and unassuming Tranter won on the back of an impressive breaststroke leg, in 1:57.83, from Scotland's Daniel Wallace (1:58.72) and South Africa's Chad le Clos (1:58.85) just pipping Australia's Thomas Fraser Holmes (1:58.85) for bronze.

The 22 year old had a massive release of emotion at the end of the race, yelling and encouraging his teammates to increase the volume of their cheering.

"It's just such an amazing feeling," Tranter said.

"I've been swimming since I was seven years old. I've always seen the Australian swim team and the success that they've had at the Olympic Games and especially Commonwealth Games, so to finally be part of that is a little but surreal.

"Everything that I saw those guys experiencing on TV I got to experience just then in a 10 minute period so it's pretty extreme and it's probably going to take a little while to come back down."
