In the space of half an hour on the final night of competition, Australia claimed three gold medals – through Stephanie Morton, Amy Cure and Matthew Glaetzer – to take our overall GC2018 track gold tally to 10.
Stephanie Morton announced herself as a superstar in her own right – not just the next Anna Meares - snaring her third gold medal of the Gold Coast Games.
Morton powered to victory, just ahead of her surging teammate Kaarle McCulloch who took silver.
"Probably equal (best performance)," said Morton of her three gold and one silver medal wining performance” said Morton. "I wanted to win the sprint, team sprint and the keirin. 500 I just wanted to ride a pb. I rode out of my skin to get close to Kaarle.
"I literally ticked every box I wanted to coming into these champs, I'm just so happy.
“There has been a lot of work behind the scenes but we have such a great squad. We've got no prima donnas or people that are hard work and that environment is flourishing on the track,
“We get behind each other and that internal pressure is working wonders – everyone has come out and been really dominant.
