World 100m freestyle champion James Magnussen added the Commonwealth Games title to his collection by edging out fellow Australian Cameron McEvoy in a time of 48:11sec.

McEvoy had surprisingly beaten Magnussen at the Australian trials in April, but made amends despite having to come from behind after a sluggish first 50 metres.

Tommaso D'Orsogna claimed bronze to make it an all-Australian podium.
