New Delhi - Australia on Saturday won the men's 4x100m medley relay at the Commonwealth Games in a new record time.

The foursome came from behind after a strong backstroke leg by world champion Liam Tancock of England to finish in 3:33.15, about half a second inside the previous best set in Melbourne four years ago.

South Africa won silver with England in bronze.

Tancock - the double 50m and 100m backstroke champion - put England in a strong position going into the breaststroke leg. But Brenton Rickard, fresh from winning the 200m gold, pulled Australia into pole position.

The 100m butterfly champion Geoff Huegill then powered the Aussies into a commanding lead that left the chasing pack with an uphill task to get back on terms with Eamon Sullivan.

Australia's men have now won the event on the last five occasions.
