New Delhi - South African swimmers have won two golds, a silver and a bronze on an action-packed day of swimming at the Commonwealth Games.

Natalie du Toit led the way as she raced to gold and a Commonwealth Games record in winning the S9 100m freestyle final, before Chad le Clos won his second gold of the Games.

Du Toit, winner of the S9 50m freestyle, was never troubled in swimming 1:02.85 to give South Africa a fourth gold medal.

Within a few minutes Le Clos showed the future of South African swimming has an exceptional talent when he added a 400m Individual Medley gold to his 200m butterfly win on Monday.

Le Clos also has two bronze relay medals and has the chance to win a fifth medal in the last two days of swimming.

If Le Clos is the future, then Du Toit will leave a legacy of a glorious past.

She still has one event left in her Commonwealth Games career before retiring after the London Olympics in 2012.

Riaan Schoeman took bronze in the 400m Individual Medley, and Wendy Trott rounded off proceedings with silver in the women's 800m freestyle.
