Walking around Sydney Olympic Park over the past two weeks there have been constant reminders of Australia's dominance of world netball.
Footage of Australia's World Cup heroics play on loop on a big screen outside the stadium, repeating the Silver Ferns heartbreak of 1991, 1999, 2007 and 2011 over and over again. The fanzone offers a "cheer cam" where kids armed with confetti can get videos of themselves joining in the on-court celebrations from previous tournaments. And at every break in quarter play at the tournament the big screen plays ads featuring Diamonds skipper Laura Geitz talking about what it is to be a great Australian.
The Silver Ferns were last night delivered another brutal reminder of Australia's dominance of the event, effectively storming away with the World Cup in the opening quarter.
Cue more scenes of Diamonds jubilation, emotional players leaping into the crowd to embrace family, and confetti raining down on the women in gold.
