Before signing off on Molloy after a memorable few days in Australian swimming, Channel 7 and Sunrise's Grant Hackett was asked who's left with a chance of winning gold in Tokyo over the next few days.

Our Australian swimmers have won seven medals - three gold, one silver, three bronze - to date, with Ariarne Titmus one of those in an enormous victory over one of the best swimmers of all time in Katie Ledecky in the 400m freestyle.

And Hackett says Titmus might not be done winning medals just yet with two events coming up.

"We've seen the women dominate, they're going to continue to do that," he explained.

"Look out for Kyle Chalmers. He swam an amazing anchor leg (in the 4x100m freestyle). The American who he's going up against who's like the Katie Ledecky of the team, Caeleb Dressel, it's going to come right down to the wire."
