James Goddard claimed his second gold medal of the week when he led from start to finish to take the 200 metres individual medley title at the Commonwealth Games in Delhi.

The 27-year-old followed up his imperious victory in the 200m backstroke, one of the top performances at the Games this week, with victory tonight in one minute 58.10 seconds.

Goddard pulled away on the breaststroke leg and he was well clear at the finish with England team-mate Joe Roebuck going one better than his European Championship efforts to touch in second in 1min 59.86secs.
