Meanwhile, the Australian men beat their fierce English rivals to take top spot in the team pursuit cycling, beating the record Britain set at the Olympics.

Besides Cheptegei, Uganda will also look to win Commonwealth Games medals from Solomon Munyo Mutai who won a marathon silver medal at the 2015 World Championships in China, in-form U-20 World Cross Country champion Jacob Kiplimo and the five boxers.

Former Kincumber High School student and Olympic Gold Medallist Ellia Green is a member of the ground-breaking women's Sevens team as females compete in Rugby Sevens for the first time ever at the Commonwealth Games.

Australia won 7 Gold, 2 Silver and 6 Bronze in Cycling while England won 3 Gold, 2 Silver and 2 Bronze.

"I've dreamed of coming to the Commonwealth Games since I was a kid".

Canada's Taylor Ruck upset the fancied Australians Ariarne Titmus and defending champion Emma McKeon to win the 200m freestyle gold, and setting a new Games record of 1:54.81.

"Obviously it was painful but I wanted to make sure I was comfortably winning.it was my fastest ever 150m split and then I knew, with respect, that the rest was over". The 24 year old from Chittaway Point is set for a strong tilt at a Commonwealth Games Medal to add to his increasingly impressive resume.

Earlier, the Kiwis recorded the second fastest time of 4m 22.331s in qualifying, 0.153s ahead of Canada.

That was 0.374s quicker than a New Zealand foursome had gone before.

Wilmott, beaten by Miley in the 2014 Glasgow final, fought back tenaciously in the final freestyle leg to pip the Scot by 0.26secs with Australia's Blair Evans third. I was still a bit soft and slow in that first 200.

Australia lead the medal table in the pool on 32, with 11 golds.
