James Magnussen led an Australian sweep of the medals in the 100m freestyle as his nation continued its dominance of the swimming pool at the Commonwealth Games on Sunday.

Magnussen edged out compatriots Cameron McEvoy and Tommaso D'Orsogna with an impressive swim of 48.11 seconds.

The 23-year-old Magnussen, who won a silver and bronze at the London 2012 Olympics, now has two Glasgow golds, having won the 4x100m freestyle relay on Friday.

"For me, it was a two-man race," Magnussen told reporters.

"The plan was to sit next to Cam (McEvoy) and switch it up when I needed to. I felt like I took a lot of pressure off myself and I was able to enjoy it."

South Africa ended New Zealand's dominance of the Commonwealth Games rugby sevens with a 17-12 victory at Ibrox Stadium on Sunday to win the gold medal.

New Zealand had not lost a Commonwealth match since the sport made its debut in 1998 and they looked to be heading for a fifth consecutive gold when Sherwin Stowers crossed in the first half.

South Africa, who beat Samoa 35-7 to reach the final, came storming back and Seabelo Senatla grabbed two quick tries either side of halftime before Cecil Afrika scored with three minutes remaining.

Joe Webber pulled a late try for New Zealand, setting up a nervous few minutes for Neil Powell's side but the Africans held on for victory.

"It could have gone either way," New Zealand captain DJ Forbes told reporters.

Rugby will make its return to the Olympics in its abbreviated format in Rio in 2016.

Australian Michael Shelley and Kenya’s Flomena Cheyech Daniel took gold in the men’s and women’s marathons as the Commonwealth Games took to the streets of Glasgow on Sunday.

Shelley, who won silver four years ago in Delhi, became the first Australian to win the Games marathon for 20 years and the first to claim consecutive medals in the event since Steve Moneghetti in 1990 and 1994.

Kenya’s Stephen Chemlany clinched silver and Abraham Kiplimo of Uganda took bronze, both winning the first medals for their countries in Glasgow.

It was also Uganda’s first Games medal ever in the men’s marathon.

Australia Jess Trengove added to her country’s burgeoning medal tally when she crossed the line for bronze to cheers from a large crowd on a drizzly day in Scotland.

"I've got to pinch my self, it is very exciting,” Shelley told reporters.

“To come back and actually win is indescribable. Now I have had a bit more experience, to come away with my first win is indescribable.

"You just try to run the best you possibly can and it was a dream to be honest. I'm still buzzing, I can't believe it. It probably wasn't until a kilometre out that I got a bit of a feeling.

"I just kept pushing on. My main idea was to stay relaxed and I was always there in the lead group. At 35 kilometres there was a surge. I just had to stay strong and it paid off."

Caleb Ndiku raced to gold and the first track medal at the Commonwealth Games as Kenya snatched a one-two in the men's 5,000m final on Sunday.

Ndiku, 21, the world indoor 3,000m champion, took advantage of Olympic and world champion Mo Farah's absence to produce a performance to match his golden hair.

He won a pulsating final in 13 minutes, 12.07 seconds on a drizzly night at HampdenPark.

Compatriot Isiah Koech took silver in 13:14.06 as the Kenyan pair overtook New Zealand twins Jake and Zane Robertson, who had led for much of the race.

Zane took the bronze in 13:16.52, a season's best.

Farah, who won the 5,000m and 10,000m titles at the London 2012 Olympics and the world championships in Moscow last year, withdrew from the Games last week due to illness.
