Australia's Ashlee Ankudinoff celebrates her team's gold medal win in the women's 4000m team pursuit finals track cycling event during the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games at the Anna Meares Velodrome in Brisbane on April 5, 2018.
Australia smashed world records in swimming and cycling on day one of the Commonwealth Games as they rebounded quickly from hurdler Sally Pearson's shock pull-out on Thursday.
That broke the mark of 3:30.65 the Aussies - including the Campbells and McKeon - clocked at the Rio de Janeiro Olympics in 2016.
But they fell off after 1000m and the Aussies powered through to catch the Kiwis on the last lap and seal the win by almost 10 seconds.
In the men's race, Olympic gold and silver medallists Alistair and Jonny Brownlee of England trailed home 10th and seventh as the 2016 bronze-winner Henri Schoeman accelerated away for gold.
"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.

Horton recorded a time of 3:43.76, with McLoughlin following in 3:45.21.Читайте также: Trump Defends Sinclair Broadcast Group Over 'Fake News' Anchor Script
"I want the gold medal and I am not going into the ring here to win bronze, said Robertson".
"That didn't happen so much in Rio".
In the opening race of the night, Willmott ended Scotland's Hannah Miley's two-Games reign as 400-meter individual medley champion by taking gold in a time of 4:34.90.
Chad le Clos of South Africa, now the gold-medal favorite in the race with Proud out, was the fastest semifinalist to quality for Friday's final. "I would have preferred it to be a full-distance race on a super-hard course", Alistair said, lamenting the decision to race over sprint distance, or half an Olympic course.
The rain didn't dampen the spirits of 35,000 spectators at the Commonwealth Games Opening Ceremony last night.
