Gold Coast: Australian boxer Taylah Robertson has become the first medallist of the 21st Commonwealth Games without even stepping into the ring after she got a bye straight into the 51kg category women's semifinals. Sam Welsford, Leigh Howard, Alex Porter and Kelland O'Brien made up the Aussie team.

Australia has smashed the men's team pursuit world record on way to Gold Coast Games gold.

Kennett was leading during the cycle at the Anna Meares Velodrome and was in line to win the bronze medal.

Games rookie Titmus, 17, claimed silver and McKeon bronze, with Canadian Taylor Ruck, also aged 17, capturing a surprise medal on the opening night of the swim program.

"I definitely felt it on the third 50 meters of that 200", Ruck said. "Ten thousand people cheering for you is pretty unreal".

Campbell's path back to the winners' circle began on Thursday when she anchored the Australian 4x100m freestyle relay team to a world record.
