Tatjana Schoenmaker dominated the women's 200m breaststroke at the 2022 Commonwealth Games to win the gold medal while compatriot Kaylene Corbett claimed bronze.

Swimming in lane 4, Schoenmaker did not disappoint as she powered to a commanding lead throughout the race.

The duo's success wasn't the only medals that Team SA won on the day. Earlier Chad le Clos bagged a silver medal for the country.

The 200m world record holder touched the wall in 2:21.92 to seal gold for South Africa.

It was gold and bronze for Team SA, as Olympian Kaylene Corbett had a strong final 50m as she captured third position in 2:23.67.

Australia's Jenna Strauch separated the two South Africans as she took silver in 2:23.65

Team South Africa has now won five medals in Birmingham and all in the pool so far.
