Cape Town - South Africa's Martin Binedell has finished sixth in the final of the 200m backstroke at the Commonwealth Games on Australia's Gold Coast.
The 22-year-old, who was eliminated in the heats of the same event at last year's World Aquatics Championships, had qualified fastest for Monday's final.

Having started in lane 4, Binedell could not capitalise on his semi-final form.
He was never in contention and finished in a time of 1:57.87.
Australia claimed all three podium places with Mitch Larkin (1:56.10) winning followed by Bradley Woodward and Josh Beaver.
South Africa's Kate Beavon, meanwhile, finished last in her 800m freestyle final.
Australia dominated in that race too, winning all three medals again through Ariarne Titmus, Jessica Ashwood and Kiah Melverton.
Brady Tandy then gave South Africa something to celebrate when he qualified for the final of the 50m freestyle.
Tandy won his semi-final in a time of 21.92, qualifying second fastest for Tuesday's final (11:45, SA time) as South Africa look to build on their medal tally.
There was no such luck for Mariella Venter, who was knocked out of the 50m backstroke semi-finals after finishing last in a time of 29.58.
Erin Gallacher finished sixth in the 100m freestyle final in a time of 54.23 - an African record.
