Commonwealth Games: Gururaja Poojary from Karnataka wins India's first medal

A section of the Indian contingent at the Commonwealth Games 2018 in Gold Coast in Australia

Best wishes to all Canadian athletes for much success at the Games.

Swimmer Aimee Willmott won England's third gold, beating Scotland's Hannah Miley in the 400m individual medley.

The gymnastics had provided England's maiden gold, meanwhile, as Max Whitlock, Nile Wilson, Courtney Tulloch, James Hall and Dominick Cunningham won the men's team event.

Blair Evans got the Australian swimming medal tally up and running with bronze.

Veteran Manoj Kumar (69kg) was the lone boxer in action on day one and the 2010 CWG gold-medallist hammered Nigeria's Osita Umeh to move into the pre-quarterfinals.

The 19-year-old said he could not believe how big and loud the crowds were.

Now that he has won silver at the Commonwealth Games Gururaja is all set to fulfil his childhood dream - buying tumbledown truck - not for his father, but for himself.

The women fared better in their race earlier in the day, with all three of their participants finishing in the top six, including a silver medal for Jess Learmonth.

Liam Schluter and Daniel Fox of Australia claimed silver and bronze respectively.

But there was controversy in the outdoor Southport pool when defending champion Ben Proud of England was disqualified from the men's 50m butterfly heats for a false start.

"Not being able to go out on that track and run for Australia is gut wrenching".

It proved to be somewhat of a procession for McKeon, Jack and the two Campbells as it quickly became apparently that no other team in the field could catch them.

The men reclaimed pursuit dominance over England in their perennial battle, powering home to clock three minutes 49.804 seconds and smash the mark set by Great Britain at the Rio Olympics by almost half a second.
