Griffith graduate Katrin Garfoot (right) has struck gold on the familiar roads of the Gold Coast in the Women’s Individual Time Trial this afternoon.

In a very dominant performance, road cyclist Katrin powered her way to another Commonwealth Games medal, adding to the bronze she won in Glasgow four years ago.

The 36-year-old, who completed a Graduate Diploma in Secondary Education, brings Team Griffith’s haul of gold medals to a round dozen.

Elsewhere on day six of the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games, Bachelor of Public Relations and Communication student Skye Nicolson guaranteed herself a boxing medal after outpointing Cameroon’s Christelle Aurore Ndiang in the Women’s 57kg category. She’ll next face Canadian Sabrina Aubin-Boucher in Friday night’s semi-final.

In the athletics at Carrara Stadium today, emerging Australia sprinter Riley Day finished third in her heat of the 200m to qualify for the semi-finals tomorrow night (Wed).

Sport Management student John Lane’s prospects of a medal tonight in the decathlon were boosted by a judgement error by runaway leader Damian Warner who had three fails in the pole vault, and fell to sixth place as a result. The decathlon reaches its grueling climax tonight with the javelin and 1500m to come.

Tonight also sees Business student Madison de Rozario going for gold in the Women’s T54 (Wheelchair) 1500m Finaljust after 8pm.
