WOODY CHASING SECOND GAMES MEDAL

Brad Woodward has a strong chance to win a second individual medal – qualifying third fastest for the 200 metres-backstroke on the Gold Coast.

The Shelly Beach teenager – seen here at the Commonwealth Games trials – stopped the clock in just over one-minute 58 to comfortably win his heat.

South Africa’s Martin Binedell and Aussie Mitch Larkin were almost half a second faster, and will start in the middle lanes for tonight’s final.
