Maybe I should leave it to the team's 'old boy', Josh Jefferis -
"We’re absolutely ecstatic, Melbourne in ‘06 we knew we had the potential to win that one and it was very disappointing and we wanted it so bad here now," he said.
"Now we’ve rewritten history, we’re the first Australian men’s team to win gold and it’s an amazing feeling to do it with such a great group of guys as well."
Or maybe National Champ Sam Offord?
"It was an amazing team effort... We have had a blast, and winning this gold was brilliant."

Stuff you might have missed at the end - Josh got a huge hug from Prashanth as he left the podium after rings. The boys got in a huddle and did an "Aussie Aussie Aussie Oi Oi Oi". As the final results came in, the boys posed for photos off to the side of the podium (see first photo above). They waved their sign-holder chaperone girls over to get in the shot too! Sam waved at the camera and rattled off a quick list of "thank yous".
The boys were interviewed on Channel Ten's "Good Morning Delhi" earlier this morning (medals and scarves on, very chuffed), it was followed up by an interview with Phil Rizzo who watched the competition in front of Ten's cameras. He certainly didn't indicate he'd be stepping away from the sport just yet.
