The Australians rounded off a superb performance at the 2011 Track World Championships, taking more gold medals on the final day of competition on Sunday. What Great Britain did in Majorca in the last Olympic cycle, the Australians did in Apeldoorn.

The Cyclones won eight gold medals in total, six of which were in Olympic events. Anna Meares was the star of the show, winning gold in all three Olympic sprint events and setting herself up as the standout favourite, 17 months out from London 2012.
