New Zealand topped the medal table at the end of their home round of the UCI Track World Cup, although they didn't taste any gold on the final night of racing on Sunday. 

The home nation had enjoyed five gold medals across the opening two days of racing, and on Sunday two bronze medals - courtesy of Ethan Mitchell in the men's individual sprint and Racquel Sheath and Rushlee Buchanan in the women's Madison - were added to make a total of seven. 

Australia and Hong Kong were the next most successful nations, each claiming two gold medals. In Hong Kong's case, it was all down to Lee-Wai Sze, who backed up her sprint victory on Saturday with a win in the Keirin on Sunday.

Australia's second gold came on Sunday from Nathan Hart in the men's individual sprint. After qualifying second fastest behind Mateusz Rudyk, he met the Pole in the final and dispatched him 2-0.

In the women's Madison it was the star duo of Jolien d'Hoore and Lotte Kopecky who took gold for Belgium, while in the women's scratch race Martina Fidanza (Italy) sprinted clear on the final lap to win gold.

The men's Omnium went right down to the wire, with just one point separating first and second place. Consistency proved to be the key for Switzerland's Claudio Imhof, who was fourth in the scratch race, third in the tempo race and third in the elimination race before keeping Raman Tsishkou (Belarus) at bay in the points race to seal the victory.
