Gold, gold, gold for record-breaking Aussie cyclists

Gold, gold, gold for record-breaking Aussie cyclists

A small band of protesters have labelled the Games on Australia's Gold Coast the "Stolenwealth Games" and are using the event to protest a number of injustices suffered by the Aboriginal community, among the most disadvantaged in the country.

"Pretty cool that I won the first gold medal of these games", she said.

On Thursday, Canada finished second, almost four seconds behind. "I think that's important to realize".

"A few more years (towards Tokyo) is going to be hard to stay up in the top end but the depth in Australian cycling is awesome, the culture is incredible and I'm so proud to be part of the team, and hopefully in the next few years we can step up again and show the world what our country is all about". "From start to finish I didn't feel great".

Gururaja failed in his first two attempts in the clean and jerk round, but he lifted 138 kg in his third.

"It's nice to have a medal but I want gold".




The men's team pursuit's disqualification concluded a hectic period at the velodrome, with it initially being announced over the velodrome PA that it was the women's team pursuit who had been disqualified.

Australia, with sisters Bronte and Cate Campbell, Emma McKeon and Shayna Jack, clocked a time of 3 minutes, 30.5 seconds Thursday night at the Gold Coast Aquatic Centre.

The New Zealanders picked up their first gold medal on the track with a victory over England in the men's team sprint.

Around a hundred indigenous protesters blocked a road outside the stadium hosting the Commonwealth Games as the opening ceremony got underway in Australia on Wednesday evening.

11 YEARS YOUNG: Anna Hursey made her Commonwealth Games debut at the age of 11, and drew plenty of attention as the youngest athlete competing at the Gold Coast.

PROUD OUT: World champion Proud was disqualified from the 50-meter butterfly after winning his morning race in the preliminaries. "I would never have dreamt it (20 years ago)".
