No rest for world record-holders in Commonwealth Games pool

Aussie swimmers set early pace at Games

The New Zealand men's pursuit team were disqualified from their bronze medal ride against Canada due to one of their bikes not meeting the regulations in qualifications at the Commonwealth Games in Brisbane tonight. And Stephanie Morton and Kaarle McCulloch, who made up the women's team sprint pair, won their event, also beating NZ.

Titmuss had been tipped to become the first woman to win the 200-400-800 freestyle treble at the same Commonwealth Games since fellow Australian Karen Moras did it in 1970.

"I've been second nearly every single time", Wilmott said. "With fans in the crowd, I wanted to give them something to cheer about by delivering a fast time".

"I've raced against Hannah in every meet and I've been second every time". "I knew that this time it could have been me if I just swam the race a little bit better". Gold medalists Shayna Jack, Bronte Campbell, Emma McKeon and Cate Campbell of Australia celebrate on the podium.

Cate Campbell brought home the world record with a flying final leg of 51.00secs after sister Bronte was under world record pace with her second leg of 52.03secs.
