British Cycling performance director, Stephen Park, said: "We've been pleased by the performances of British riders on the Gold Coast, which have once again demonstrated the talent, determination and strength in depth that we have within British cycling".

"I think there's a few key things around our ability to convert all our changes and I think the outcomes need to be better but that's something we can work on".

"We can only show the pictures that are provided by the actual host broadcasters".

It wasn't just the 63 Aussie para-athletes swooping on 15 golds that elevated the goodwill but competitors like blind para-sprinter Ananias Shikongo, who took inclusion to another level as Namibia's flag-bearer at the opening ceremony. "They are the ones who drive me".

The event also provided an opportunity for the community to connect with local sporting clubs and organisations, and learn about the many different sports and activities available in Toowoomba.

Robertson said it's awesome to see our athletes fight for and win medals at the pinnacle of their discipline.

One less speech from me would have helped, ' he told Today presenter Karl Stefanovic on Monday morning.
