Matthew Glaetzer claimed silver in the keirin, as did Anna Meares and Stephanie Morton in the team sprint.

The men's team pursuit squad of Daniel Fitter, Jackson Law, Alex Porter, Callum Scotson and Sam Welsford added bronze.

The final day of racing saw Glaetzer take fifth in the sprint, behind the winner Denis Dmitriev of Russia, while Morton finished seventh in the women's keirin which was won by UCI World Champion, Kristina Vogel.

"The day didn't start off so great but I managed to end the day with some really solid performances," Morton said.

"It's not often we get to race at this level so I really made the most of it and soaked up as much as I could.

"I learned a lot which is the main thing. Overall I'm really happy with the start of the 15/16 season.

"I've put down some solid performances and times so hope to keep doing that as the season rolls on."

Welsford finished twelfth overall in the omnium after winning the flying lap and Elissa Wundersitz finished 24th.

Daniel Fitter and Jackson Law rounded out the competition finishing sixth in the Madison.

Germany finished as the top team at the event after victories in the Men's Team Sprint, Men's Individual Pursuit, Men's and Women's Keirin as well as the Madison, ahead of Russia with China and Great Britain tying for third.

Australia's best will now turn their attention to the second round of the UCI Track World Cup Series which will be held closer to home in Cambridge, New Zealand from 5-6 December.
