Australia on top of Commonwealth medal table

Australia's 4x100-meter women's freestyle relay team has done it again, breaking its own world record on the opening night of the swim program at the Commonwealth Games.

"I felt like the adrenalin was still going", Jack said.

They posted a blistering three minutes 30.05 seconds with Cate Campbell bringing home the world record with a flying final leg of 51.00secs.

"The mechanics are not feeling particularly great about it but at the end of the day it's my responsibility to make sure we put legal bikes on the tracks", said Barras. "When we set the world record (at Rio) it was a really quick time and we weren't expecting to get near it tonight".

Horton became Australia's first 400 metres freestyle victor at the Commonwealth Games since the great Ian Thorpe with his victory.

Horton, the Olympic champion in the event, took the lead in the last 100m to win from McLoughlin, a 23-year-old from Brisbane making his Commonwealth Games debut.

"I told the boys to back off a bit because the shark was right next to us", he added.

"It's good. Just swimming in front of the home crowd is unreal".

"My parents were in the stand, and they've travelled all this way to support me and I just really, really wanted a gold medal".

"That didn't happen so much in Rio".

It was Horton's third career Commonwealth Games medal after winning 4x200m freestyle gold and 1,500m freestyle silver in Glasgow in 2014.

Martin Barras said he was disappointed about the NZ men's pursuit team being disqualified from their bronze medal race in Brisbane.

Canada's Taylor Ruck, however, ended a potential Australian gold rush and temporarily sucked all of the frenzied expectation out of the venue when she held off a fast-finishing Ariarne Titmuss in the women's 200m freestyle.

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