Tokyo 2020 day five: All the Olympic golds and another triumph for the Terminator

A total of 23 gold medals up for grabs at the Games

Tokyo 2020 day five and the action ramped up again with 23 gold medals on offer.

There was plenty of action in the rowing, with extra events after a typhoon earlier in the week disrupted the programme.

And in the pool, Australian Ariarne Titmus said she proved anything is possible after winning the 200m freestyle, her second gold in Tokyo.

Titmus, dubbed the 'Terminator', accelerated in the final metres to touch just ahead of Hong Kong's Siobhan Haughey and finish way ahead of favourite Katie Ledecky, who she beat for a second time after winning the 400m freestyle on Monday.

"I'm just from a small town in Tasmania and it just goes to show if you believe you can do something, you can 100 per cent do it if you work for it," she said.

The 20-year-old won in a time of 1:53.50, an Olympic record, with Haughey, who had set the pace for most of the race, second in 1:53.92.

Canadian Penny Oleksiak took the bronze in a time of 1:54.70 while Ledecky, a five-times Olympic gold medal winner, finished fifth in a time of 1:55.21.
