"I'm going to make sure I stop and take a couple of breaths to take in how special this moment is because not many people get to experience it".

Canada finished second, with England third.

Horton was the first Australian champion in the race, seen as one of the premier titles on the programme, since retired swimming great Ian Thorpe at Manchester in 2002. "I knew that this time it could have been me if I just swam the race a little bit better".

"I thought, "someone must be doing something special here" and I thought we were being caught, but it was us breaking the world record".

"This is the stuff of dreams and to have that a reality is something that I will never take for granted ever again", she said.

"I think that was really incredible".

Horton became Australia's first 400 metres freestyle victor at the Commonwealth Games since the great Ian Thorpe with his victory.

Local activists say over 100,000 civilians are trapped inside Douma, which has suffered catastrophic damage. The town is one of the last around the capital to hold out against the government.

Horton added a Commonwealth gold to his Olympic title, easily winning the 400 in 3:43.76, about 1.5 seconds ahead of Australian teammate Jack McLoughlin.

While Australia came away with two gold, three silver and four bronze from the pool, they were upstaged by an England team who took home four gold medals of their own.

"Just swimming in front of the home crowd is unreal", he said.

Barras also said that he was unsure how the bike had failed to pass technical checks after it had been deemed compliant at the Track World Championships in March, but said that the compression of the arm rest pads could have elongated the gap between the pads and the ends of the aero bars.

England's James Wilby and Aimee Willmott, however, ensured that Australia would not bag all the spoils as they won the men's 200m breaststroke and the women's 400m individual medley in fingertip finishes. "Ten thousand people cheering for you is pretty unreal". "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.

Meanwhile, Maddie Groves qualified fastest for Friday night's final of the 100m butterfly with a new Commonwealth Games record of 57.22.
