Natalie scored wins in the multi-disability 50 and 100m freestyle events, and in the S9 100m freestyle at the Manchester Aquatics Centre.

"Since I made my debut here at the 2002 Commonwealth Games, this has been a lucky pool for me,” Natalie told BBC Sport.

Natalie, who lost her lower leg in a motorbike accident six years ago, was in superb form to bring her career gold tally at the event to eight.

She is still aiming for a place in South Africa’s Olympic team in the 800m freestyle and 10km open water race, but admitted she enjoyed the challenge of the sprints.

"I’m primarily a long-distance swimmer so I just went out there and had fun and it was great to continue my good form here," she said.
