The woman who went viral for accidentally exposing her bottom during Wednesday’s Commonwealth Games opening ceremony hopes everyone had a "cracking" night.

Brisbane dancer Georgia Lear has taken to social media to reveal she was the woman in a purple dress whose bum went around the globe during a performance by singer Ricki-Lee Coulter.

"Last night I was feeling really bummed… butt that’s all behind me now!" Ms Lear wrote on her Instagram page.

Ms Lear’s mishap lit up social media during the ceremony with several labelling the event a "cracker of a show".

Flora Duffy of Bermuda wins 1st Commonwealth Games gold

The Bermuda athlete, who started competing in triathlons when she was just seven years old, won the sprint race Thursday by 43 seconds to take the first gold medal at the 21st Commonwealth Games.

”I felt very good today, very consistent in every part of the race,” Duffy said. ”And pretty cool that I won the first gold medal of these games.”

Duffy, 30, came out the opening 750-meter swim leg just behind Jessica Learmonth, both around 9 minutes, 35 seconds. But Duffy quickly caught the English racer and the pair staged their own duel for much of the 20-kilometer bike leg – four laps around the Broadwater Parklands – trading places numerous times.

Cycling is Duffy’s strongest leg – so strong that she is entered in the mountain bike competition on April 12.

Under sunny skies and a temperature of 27 Celsius (81 Fahrenheit), Duffy and Learmonth finished the cycle leg together in 39.23.
