Cape Town - South Africa's Natalie Du Toit on Thursday won her second gold of the Commonwealth Games, taking the women's 100m freestyle S9 race.

The 26-year-old led from the front to come home in a new Games record of 1:02.36. England's Stephanie Millward won bronze, with Ellie Cole of Australia in third.

Du Toit, who won the 50m freestyle S9 on Tuesday, lost her leg in a motorbike accident and is one of the world's best-known para-athletes.

She has dominated disabled swimming at the last two Commonwealth Games and Paralympics.

She has held the 50m and 100m freestyle Commonwealth title for elite athletes with a disability since Manchester in 2002, has 11 Paralympic gold medals and competed against able-bodied athletes in the Beijing Olympics.
