Kathryn Mitchell has won the gold medal and smashed the Australian women's javelin record in the Commonwealth Games final.
The 68.92m effort in the opening round on Wednesday night continued a remarkable start to the 2018 season for Mitchell, who has three times bettered the Australian record previously held by Kim Mickle.
Fellow Australian Kelsey-Lee Roberts claimed silver with a 63.89m throw and the bronze went to South African Sunette Viljoen (62.08m).
The first gold medal at a major international meet was a long time coming for 35-year-old Mitchell.
She blew Wednesday night's competition wide open with what turned out to be the gold medal-winning throw in the opening round.
After settling her adrenaline, the 2016 Olympics finalist hurled a second-last effort of 68.14m that was also well past the Games record set by Mickle four years ago in Glasgow.
"It was pretty f***ing awesome," Mitchell said.
"You hope for this type of result and I've worked a lot this season trying not to focus too much on results and more on the process.
"It's been working and it's worked again tonight. It's a little bit unbelievable."
It's been a long time coming for Mitchell, a perennial bridesmaid to Mickle who attributed her sudden success to a change in mindset.
"The paradox of sport is the less you focus on results the better the results come.
"That's what I've tried to do this year. I put all distances out of my mind. I knew I could throw the Australian record eventually. I told myself to just allow it to come.
"Everyone has started to talk about 70m and that will come but I won't try for 70m. As soon as you start to try for it it's less likely to happen."
Roberts improved one spot from her bronze-medal effort at the 2014 Glasgow Games.
It was a fourth straight Commonwealth medal for Viljoen, who won gold in 2006 and 2010 and silver in 2014.
