Australia has its second gold medal at the Olympic Games after Libby Trickett won the women's 100 metres butterfly.
The ABC's Matt Brown reports from Beijing Trickett made her intentions clear from the start, racing to a convincing lead over the first fifty metres and holding on to win her first individual Olympic gold medal, and the news got better for Australia, with Jessica Schipper taking bronze.
