    Gold Coast, Australia (CNN)Adam Peaty and Chad le Clos, the two superstars of the Commonwealth Games, won gold on a record-breaking Saturday evening in the pool.

    London 2012 Olympic champion Le Clos made history by becoming the first man to win three consecutive 200m butterfly Commonwealth titles.
      England's Peaty, meanwhile, retained his 100m breaststroke title, though not with the ease many would have predicted for a man who set a Games record of 58.59 seconds in Friday's semifinal.
        The Olympic champion touched home in 58.84 seconds at the Gold Coast aquatics center, with his compatriot James Wilby (59.43) taking silver and South Africa's Cameron van der Burgh (59.44) bronze.

        It was four years ago, at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, where Peaty made his major breakthrough and the Englishman has had no equal since.
        The 23-year-old has not been beaten in the 100m breaststroke since Glasgow 2014 and in that time has amassed 26 medals, including 17 breaststroke golds.
          Peaty's times are the fastest 11 over the distance in history.
          "Even though it's a gold medal and it's four years undefeated and that's completed the circle, I'm not happy with that performance," Peaty, who will return to the pool Sunday for the 50m breaststroke, told reporters.
          "It's not the best version of me. I want to go out there on the 50 and try to get that better version."
          The world record holder added: "That's the first time ever where I've felt not in control of my race.
          "I think I let the event get to me too much and I was thinking about the end result instead of the process.
          "It's been a big learning curve here. My stroke feels nowhere near what it should feel like."
