Australia break women's 4x100m freestyle world record

Australia break women's 4x100m freestyle world record

Morgan was nearly two and a half seconds behind le Clos while Irvine appeared set to claim bronze but was touched out by Scotland's Duncan Scott.

Team Australia have rounded off day three in the pool at the Commonwealth Games with a record-breaking gold in the women's 4x200m freestyle relay.

The biggest cheer of the night erupted in the final race when Australia's sprint world champion Matt Glaetzer obliterated the field in the men's keirin, with Lewis Oliva of Wales taking silver and the Kiwi Edward Dawkins bronze.

"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 that is what we have done".

Canada narrowly beat England in the ride for bronze.

"It's been fantastic, really good".

Under pressure from his nationalist base, Netanyahu says he will seek alternative plans to repatriate the African migrants . Since 2012, Israel has deported roughly 20,000 African migrants and asylum-seekers who had entered the country illegally.


"Most of them are faster than at trials and that was the plan. I can't choose a medal but they're all special".

Australia's victory comes two years after three of the current side were involved in a crash just three days out from competing in Rio's Olympics.

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.

Campbell continued her sizzling form at the Gold Coast meet with another record in the 50m freestyle semifinal.

Hanson, an anti-immigration firebrand known for her outspoken views, said the ceremony's opening sequence was "over the top", but denied her views were racist. "To swim a sub-24 seconds is something that only a handful of people can do, and have done in history".

The result caps another excellent day for Australia, who now have a total of 32 medals from their exploits in the pool, including 11 golds.

The men's team sprint title went to New Zealand with England again pipped into silver.
