Piper clinches 200m breaststroke
Piper nearly lost out on the gold

Australia's Jim Piper led from start to finish to win the men's 200m breaststroke.

Piper, the favourite for the race, set out at a sharp pace and nearly paid for expending most of his energy when South Africa's Terence Parkin closed in.

The Australian just managed to touch home in front of Parkin in a time of two minutes 13.10 seconds.

Parkin finished in 2:13.34 while Canada's Michael Brown took bronze with a time of 2:13.82.

England's Adam Whitehead came fourth, Northern Ireland's Andrew Bree took fifth while Scotland's Ian Edmond finished sixth.
