The Australian quartet of Shayna Jack, Emma McKeon and sisters Bronte and Cate Campbell were roared home by a fervent crowd to clock three minutes, 30.05 seconds and break their own record of 3:30.65 set at the Rio Olympics. Australia's Pearson, the 100m hurdles world champion and a Gold Coast resident, earlier said she was in tears when she realised she had to withdraw, but added: "My health comes first".

England's James Wilby and Aimee Willmott, however, ensured that Australia would not bag all the spoils as they won the men's 200m breaststroke and the women's 400m individual medley in fingertip finishes.

She thought that Titmus had beaten her at the wall.

"I knew I had to mow him that last 200".

"I probably feel more emotion here than in Rio because the whole crowd is cheering for you", Horton said.

"It's nice to have a medal but I want gold - and with all the training I've done, I want to earn it". "I think that as perfectionists we can always look for the next thing and we don't stop and appreciate the incredible moments when they happen and this is one of those rare and incredible moments". Horton recorded a time of 3:43.76, with McLoughlin following in 3:45.21. Blair Evans of Australia took the bronze.

Hello and welcome to the live coverage of the XXI Commonwealth Games being held in Gold Coast, Queensland. Australian Matt Willis took the bronze.

Proud, who is also the reigning Commonwealth champion in the 50 butterfly and 50 freestyle, won his preliminary heat by almost a body length but that was annulled after a referee disqualified the Englishman for movement on the starting blocks.

According to stuff.co.nz, the bike failed a pre-race inspection by UCI commissaires ahead of the team's qualifying run, with adjustments made by team mechanics not doing enough for it to pass a post-race inspection after the team of Regan Gough, Nicholas Kergozou, Campbell Stewart, and Tom Sexton had set the third fastest time.
