Australia continued its dominance of the Commonwealth Games track events with a clean sweep of the gold medals on the third day of racing in Delhi, India. Australia earned gold in the women's sprint, men's sprint, women's 10km scratch race, and men's 4,000m team pursuit.

Australia's Anna Meares qualified fastest in the women's sprint and went undefeated on her way to earning her third gold of the 2010 Commonwealth Games. Meares bested Becky James of Wales in the gold medal round. Meares's compatriot Emily Rosemond claimed the bronze medal from fellow Australian Kaarle Mcculloch after Mcculloch received her second warning regarding entering the sprinter's lane and was disqualified.

Like compatriot Anna Meares, Shane Perkins qualified fastest in the men's sprint competition and went undefeated en route to his second gold medal of the 2010 Commonwealth Games. Perkins bested compatriot Scott Sunderland for the gold medal while Sam Michael Webster (New Zealand) topped countryman Edward James Dawkins for the bronze medal.

Megan Dunn (Australia) won the women's 10km scratch race to add another gold medal to her victory in the points race the previous day. Joanne Kiesanowski (New Zealand) and Anna Blyth (England) earned silver and bronze respectively.

Australia's men's 4,000m team pursuit squad set a new Commonwealth Games record on its gold medal ride, clocking 3:55.421 to beat New Zealand, who were caught by the Aussies on the last lap. Jack Bobridge, Michael Hepburn, Cameron Meyer and Dale Parker broke the Commonwealth Games record of 3:59.583 set by Australia in 2002.

Northern Ireland caught India to win the bronze medal in the men's team pursuit.

In the men's 10km scratch race qualifiers, Zach Bell (Canada) and Michael Freiberg (Australia) won their respective heats. The top 12 finishers of each heat advance to tomorrow's final.
