Commonwealth Games 2014: Ben Proud lands butterfly gold
Proud burst onto the international scene last year when he blew Mark Foster's 10-year-old British 50m butterfly record out of the water
Ben Proud ended England's wait for their first gold medal in the Glasgow 2014 pool when he triumphed in the 50m butterfly final.
The Londoner was up against former Olympic and world champion Roland Schoeman but a new Commonwealth Games record time of 22.93 earned him victory.
Another South African, Chad Le Cross, had to settle for bronze as the second night of swimming action got underway at the Tollcross Swimming Centre.
Proud burst onto the international scene last year when he blew Mark Foster's 10-year-old British 50m butterfly record out of the water.
But his Commonwealth victory was the biggest win of the 19-year-old's fledgling career as romped home in the sprint event by eight hundredths of a second.
