Great Britain's rowers claimed a fine four golds and a silver on the final day of the Australian Youth Olympic Festival in Sydney.

The women's quadruple scull took the first gold, with the women's four quickly following suit.

Their male counterparts matched that with a two-length win from New Zealand before the women's eight struck gold.

The haul meant the GB rowers topped the final medal table with a total tally of six golds, five silvers and a bronze.

It was also a golden day for the women's hockey team, who clinched the title with a 4-2 win over Australia.

The men's team were tied 2-2 with Australia at full-time in their final but agonisingly lost 7-6 in the penalty shoot-out and had to settle for silver.

In other sports, Paul Drinkhall and Darius Knight claimed gold in the doubles table tennis, while Drinkhall also took silver in the singles.

Thomas Daley and Callum Johnstone took silver in the 10 metre synchronised diving final while their female counterparts Suzanne Collins and Tonia Couch claimed bronze.

In gymnastics, Kristian Thomas won a silver medal in the men's vault, while Louis Smith and Danusia Francis finished third on the high bar and beam respectively.

Lee Campion took silver in the men's trap shooting event while the badminton team finished with four bronze medals, Michelle Cheung taking third in the women's singles.
