Australia wins men's team pursuit gold in world-record time

Are you watching the Commonwealth Games on TV or do you plan to attend on the Gold Coast?

Chad le Clos and Tatjana Schoenmaker gave South Africa two gold medals, while England's Adam Peaty continued his four-year unbeaten run in the men's 100m breaststroke and Canada's Kylie Masse held off Emily Seebohm in the 100m backstroke.

All indications suggested they would need to go faster in the final after Australia set their first Games record of the day with 4m 17.218s. Brianna Throssell took the bronze.

Friday's result followed the silver she won in the 200m butterfly at the Rio Olympics, when Spain's Mireia Belmonte beat her by 0.03 seconds and her career, it seemed, was only going up.

England are a distant second on 14 total medals, seven of which are gold.

"I've got nothing against the Aboriginal people but I'm sick and exhausted of being made to feel as if I'm a second-class citizen in my own country".

Canada's Taylor Ruck upset the fancied Australians Ariarne Titmus and defending champion Emma McKeon to win the 200m freestyle gold, and setting a new Games record of 1:54.81.

"We're now focused on how we can use this race to see what we can do in the future".
