Highlights on day three of the Commonwealth Games

Gold Coast: Mack Horton gave Australia a golden start before their women's 4x100m freestyle relay team smashed the world record as the hosts grabbed two titles on the first day of swimming at the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games on Thursday. Sam Welsford, Leigh Howard, Alex Porter and Kelland O'Brien made up the Aussie team.

Earlier, the Kiwis recorded the second fastest time of 4m 22.331s in qualifying, 0.153s ahead of Canada.

It was one of three gold medals for Australia at the Anna Meares Velodrome in Brisbane on the opening night of track cycling competition.

Gold medalist Cate Campbell of Australia, silver medalists Bronte Campbell of Australia and Taylor Ruck of Canada on the podium.

The Gold Coast is staging the 21st edition of the Commonwealth Games, but cycling and shooting events are being held in refurbished Brisbane venues that were initially built for the 1982 Games.

Horton, who upset Chinese defending champion Sun Yang to snatch gold at Rio two years ago, joined five-time Olympic champion Thorpe, who was the last Australian man to win the 400m free in Manchester in 2002.




"I definitely felt it on the third 50 meters of that 200", Ruck said.

"Obviously it was painful but I wanted to make sure I was comfortably winning.it was my fastest ever 150m split and then I knew, with respect, that the rest was over".

"Rio is cool. But home crowd is always going to win - having 10,000 people cheering for you is pretty unreal".

"I've raced against Hannah in every meet and I've been second every time".

Cate Campbell (24.24 seconds) was quickest, followed by Jack (24.50) and Bronte Campbell (24.87).
