Calum Jarvis broke the Welsh record twice in one day as he claimed bronze in the 200m freestyle final.
The 22-year-old secured his country's first swimming medal of Glasgow 2014, setting a new Welsh record of 1:46:53.
Jarvis had earlier in the day broken David Davies's Welsh record with a time of 1:47:10 to qualify as third fastest.
"It's a tough record to get but I've had my eye on it for a while now," he said.
Jarvis finished behind an Australian one-two of Thomas Fraser-Holmes and Cameron McEvoy while defending champion Robbie Renwick of Scotland finished fifth.
"There's been a lot of work been put into this," Jarvis said.
"I'm a bit shell shocked having just got a medal at a Commonwealth Games.
"It hasn't hit me yet but I'm really happy with that."
