"We admire the courage and determination of young Lori to enter and complete the triathlon".

"The green was pretty slow and doughy for the night game this time, but she was just more up and at it than I was and that was the difference", she said.

"I wanted to get the "three-peat" because nobody's ever won three before at the Commonwealth Games".

It means the Brownlee brothers leave the Gold Coast without a gold medal, with world champion Alistair and Jonathan combining with Jess Learmonth and Vicky Holland to get the silver.

Australia's Kookaburras, the gold-medal favorites, opened with a 4-0 win over South Africa.

Etoundi injured his left biceps on his second attempt in the clean and jerk but didn't want to let his coaches know how badly he was hurting.

Australia's Matthew Glaetzer, favorite to win the men's sprint gold, crashed out of the knockout rounds at the Anna Meares Velodrome after making a tactical blunder when racing Malaysia's Muhammad Sahrom.
