Golden Jones eases to win

Teenager Leisel Jones showed her superiority by winning the 200m breaststroke at the Commonwealth Games.

The 16-year-old Australian won in a time of two minutes 25.93 seconds.

South Africa's Sarah Poewe took silver in 2:27. 47 while another Australian, Keilli Waite, took bronze with a time of 2:28.58.

Jones, who won two Olympic silvers in Sydney at the age of 14, took a very early lead and never let go of her advantage, eventually winning by nearly two lengths.
