The Tokyo Olympic Games have been our most successful yet.

New Zealand athletes have collected one more medal than our record of 18 at the last games in Rio.

Lisa Carrington's led the way with her three gold medals, as the country reaches a total of 19, with more predicted to come.

Olympic Committee President Mike Stanley told Mike Hosking Tokyo has been an outstanding success.

“If we just look at New Zealand, how people have been glued to watching our athletes perform. How they’ve performed, not only in terms of their results, but also how they have represented us as a nation.”
