Camilla Looked Bored Rigid At The Commonwealth Games Opening Ceremony

Camilla Looked Bored Rigid At The Commonwealth Games Opening Ceremony

England's James Wilby and Aimee Willmott, however, ensured that Australia would not bag all the spoils as they won the men's 200m breaststroke and the women's 400m individual medley in fingertip finishes.

The Australians, who had won the title at the last six Games, were facing arguably their biggest threat in a Commonwealth final since they were beaten by England at the Victoria Games in 1994.

Earlier, the women pursuiters made history and buried some of their demons by winning the team's first gold medal of the Games.

Emily Seebohm must overcome world champion Kylie Masse of Canada if she is to claim an unprecedented third straight 100m backstroke Games gold.

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.

"It's nice to have a medal but I want gold - and with all the training I've done, I want to earn it".

The girls deliver huge ride but come up just short against Australia.

They had outshot the Wolverines , 7-4, to close the first period, and scored a power play goal in response just two minutes later. Notre Dame defeated MI 4-3 in the second semifinal with a thrilling finish, scoring the winning goal with five seconds remaining.

Manly said the gold medal made for a dream debut.

"It's the first time I think I've heard the crowd while I'm swimming", she added.

McCulloch rode with Anna Meares to win gold in the team sprint in Delhi eight years ago and has since overcome a career-threatening injury, selection pain and a battle with low motivation and depression to return to the top of her sport.

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.

"It's insane, we were pretty lucky to get to see the track endurance and tandems go before so it was cool once you got up there, you knew that noise was for us".

Buchanan said her team did their best to match it with their trans-Tasman rivals.

"I thought, "someone must be doing something special here" and I thought we were being caught, but it was us breaking the world record".
