Sisters Bronte and Cate Campbell, Emma McKeon and Shayna Jack clocked a time of 3 minutes, 30.05 seconds to break the world record in the 4x100-meter women's freestyle relay.

BRISBANE, AUSTRALIA - APRIL 05: Gold medalists Ashlee Ankudinoff, Amy Cure, Annette Edmondson and Alexandra Manly of Australia celebrate during the medal ceremony for the Women's 4000m Team Pursuit Gold Final during the Cycling on day one of the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games at Anna Meares Velodrome on April 5, 2018 in Brisbane, Australia.

Cate Campbell said 10,000-strong home crowd at the Gold Coast Aquatic Centre.

"I think there is something to be said for home-crowd advantage, we've never had that before, and now we can see what it does for us".

Australia beat out Canada and England for their second swimming gold of the opening night after Olympic champion Mack Horton won the 400m freestyle final earlier in the programme.

Australia's victory comes two years after three of the current side were involved in a crash just three days out from competing in Rio's Olympics.

"I think that was really incredible". James Guy of England took the bronze. That didn't happen so much in Rio, so it's just unreal.

"To come back from a year off and to be part of something where you're the best in the world is a pretty special moment", she told reporters.

Their male counterparts claimed bronze after a disappointing semi-final loss where Australia couldn't recover from a starting mishap.

"I am in the shape of my life and am gutted to miss out on the opportunity to show what I can do", Proud said.

While Canada's Alexia Zevnik had given her team a flying start, Bronte Campbell took over the race for the host nation and then McKeon, who had already swum two individual races, got them within sight of the world record as she destroyed Oleksiak by 1.34 seconds on the third leg.
