Glasgow, July 24 : Scotland's Hannah Miley set the pace at the Games here by overhauling her own Commonwealth record in qualifying for the 400-metre individual medley final on the opening day of competition Thursday.
The 24-year-old clocked four minutes and 38.27 seconds in the opening heat to beat her previous time of 4:38.83 set in winning the event in New Delhi four years ago, reports BBC.
"I was hoping to go in 4:40 so it's a lot quicker than I expected," she told BBC Sport. "Normally you feel the pressure but I loved every second."
The final for the event will take place later in the day.
