With the sun setting on a scintillating couple of weeks of Commonwealth Games action in Birmingham, Welsh athletes make the short journey home with 28 medals for their efforts.

It's eight shy of the 36 they won in Gold Coast in 2018 and in Glasgow in 2014, but is well clear of the 19 won in Delhi in 2010.

It also places Wales ahead of some pretty major sporting nations, including South Africa, Kenya and Jamaica.

Such was the wide-ranging success of Team Wales in Birmingham, it's difficult to pin down the stand out moment from the games for those wearing the dragon.

Was it Olivia Breen's infectious smile as she took her lap of honour in the Alexander stadium after winning 100m gold? Could it have been Aled Davies finally securing gold in the colours of Wales?

Perhaps it was away from Alexander Stadium? Gemma Frizelle won gold in style in the gymnastics hoop, while the Croft twins take two medals back to Crymych.

Take a look back on all 28 medals Team Wales have won over the last 12 days.
