The Sapphires have completed their unbeaten run in the FIBA U17 World Championships with a 62 - 38 demolition of Italy in the final.
Leading from the tip off, the Sapphires produced their trademark potent offense with stifling defence to keep the Italians at bay.
Monique Conti let the charge with 18pts while centre Ezi Magbegor put in another towering game with 13pts, 9 rebounds and 3 blocks. They were helped out by Jasmine Simmons who finished with a double/double (14pts, 12 rebounds and 3 steals).
It was the first time in the FIBA U17 World Championships that a team other than the United States (who finished third) had claimed gold and the Sapphires did it with ease throughout the tournament.
Australia's dominance was rewarded with three players named in the All Star Five.
Unsurprisingly, Ezi Magbegor was also named the MVP of the tournament.
The Sapphires win is the third time an Australian women's team has claimed the world title following the U19s win in 1993 and the Opals in 2006.
