Australia break women's 4x100m freestyle world record

Frenchman won't be tried for killing Britons in Australia

Australia slowly overpowered the English riders and powered home in three minutes 49.804 seconds to shave almost half a second off the 3:50.265 record which Great Britain set in Rio two years ago.

A home boxer is already guaranteed to win a medal at the Commonwealth Games in Australia - without even throwing a punch.

The Australians also triumphed in the women's team pursuit and women's team sprint-each time over New Zealand-to carry home three of the four golds up for grabs on the first day of cycling action on the track.

Swimming - Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games - Men's 400m Freestyle - Heat 2 - Optus Aquatic Centre - Gold Coast, Australia - April 5, 2018. Australia's McKeon, who won the race in Glasgow four years ago, finished third. "My coach said 'the atmosphere out there is electric, go out, soak it up.' I think that is what we have done".

"This is the stuff of dreams and to have that a reality is something that I will never take for granted ever again", she said.

They won 10 medals, with just one gold to Emily Seebohm in the women's 200m backstroke, to finish eighth on the table - their worst position since 1991 - and the Commonwealth Games has been seen as a step to regroup for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.

"Then I looked up at the board and I saw that I'd won", she said shortly after receiving her gold medal from Prince Charles, who is representing his mother, Queen Elizabeth II, at the games.

"I think I'm still in shock".

Canada narrowly beat England in the ride for bronze. That didn't happen so much in Rio, so it's just unreal. "Ten thousand people cheering for you is pretty unreal". Blair Evans of Australia took the bronze. "I left no stone unturned to get out here and race for Australia in the 100m hurdles and the 4x100m relay", Pearson said. "I know I have a lot of fans who were wanting to watch me race".

"I was devastated after not winning a medal at the Rio 2016 Olympics, and since then I have made it my life's mission to become the best in my sport", Mirabai said.

There was some controversy in the morning qualifying when world champion Ben Proud was disqualified from the 50-meter butterfly at the Commonwealth Games on Thursday and lost an appeal against the decision.
