Day 4 of the Swimming competition will feature a busy schedule, including eight heats in the morning and five Finals in the evening session at the Sports and Aquatic Centre (SAC).

Heats commence with the Men's 50m Breaststroke, Women's 50m Backstroke, Men's 100m Butterfly, Women's 100m Breaststroke, Women's 100m Freestyle Elite Athletes with a Disability (EAD), Men's 100m Backstroke, Women's 50m Freestyle, and Men's 400m IM.

Among those in action will be South Africa's Natalie Du Toit, New Zealand's Moss Burmester and Australians Libby Lenton, Leisel Jones and Jodie Henry.

The Women's 100m Breaststroke world record holder, Jones, starts as a clear favourite for her pet event, after claiming gold on Day 1 in the Women's 50m Breaststroke. 

Burmester will be keen to impress in the Men's 100m Butterfly after his win in the Men's 200m Butterfly on Day 1, although team mate Corney Swanepoel qualified for the Games with the fastest time.

Australia's Michael Klim and Adam Pine are also expected to perform well.

The evening session, from 7pm, features the Women's 100m Butterfly Final, Men's 50m Breaststroke Semi Finals, Women's 50m Backstroke Semi Finals, Men's 100m Freestyle Final, Women's 100m Breaststroke Semi Finals, Men's 100m Backstroke Semi Finals, Women's 50m Freestyle Semi Finals, Men's 100m Butterfly Semi Finals, Women's 100m Freestyle EAD Final, Men's 400m Individual Medley Final, and the Women's 800m Freestyle Final.

The stand-out event of the evening session is the Men's 100m Freestyle Final. A tough contest is expected between Australia, England, Canada and South Africa, to see who will claim the top podium finish.

Swimmers to watch include Games record holder Roland Schoman and Ryk Neethling (South Africa), Eamon Sullivan and Kenerick Monk (Australia), as well as Canadians Brent Hayden and Yannick Lupien.
