De Rozario broke clear of a group of four athletes in the lead pack with five kilometres of the race left to grab gold in 1:44:00. 

"I thought 'I'm out the front, I may as well not help anyone', so I got out there," she said.

De Rozario was part of the leading group from the start before moving up to the gold medal position at the 25km mark

This was also the first time the T54 Marathon has been part of a Commonwealth Games.

"It's an amazing feeling, I didn't know what was going to happen," De Rozario said,

"This is my first Commonwealth Games and to do it in front of a home crowd is incredible - they were amazing.

"I was nervous going into it, but I'm definitely looking forward to relaxing now," she said.

Australia also claimed the silver via Eliza Ault-Connell.
