Swimmer Emma McKeon could become Australia's first dual gold medallist of the Tokyo Olympics on Monday.
Already with a 4x100-metre freestyle relay gold, McKeon is a genuine shot in the 100m butterfly final.
While China's Yufei Zhang was quickest into the medal race, McKeon wasn't far behind - and that swim came in a session when she also picked up relay gold.
McKeon is a contender for seven medals in Tokyo, which would be the most of any Australian at a single Olympics.
Australia enter Monday's competition with one gold, one silver and one bronze - all swimming.
But McKeon and fellow swimmer Ariarne Titmus are set to add to that collection on day three at the pool.
The 20-year-old Titmus, in the 400m freestyle final, takes on American megastar Katie Ledecky, the world's best-ever female swimmer.
