Seventeen gold, seven silver and 22 bronze medals. The Tokyo Olympics proved to be Australia's second best-ever Games campaign.
It shapes as a tough act to follow for our Paralympians when they take the world's stage on August 24, but Brett Stibners insists that he's not feeling the pressure.
Stibners and Wollongong Roller Hawks teammate Tristan Knowles got the call-up for the Australian Rollers last month. It will be Stibners' fourth Paralympics and he knows what it takes to win, having secured gold at the Beijing Games in 2008.
"We're feeling pretty relaxed. It's fantastic (what Australia achieved in Tokyo), every day we were watching it. It gave us something to look forward to in lockdown," Stibners said.
"I don't know if there's pressure on us. There's been a lot of successful athletes in the Paralympics too and I'm sure they're going to do well. I think they'll surprise a lot of people and get those medals."
After that victory in 2008, the Rollers clinched silver in London four years later, before finishing sixth in Rio.
And while Stibners, 42, is a three-time Paralympian, he has never experienced a lead-up like this one. COVID restrictions have meant he spent minimum time with teammates in recent months.
"Me and a teammate have been training out at the University of Wollongong. We were lucky enough to get an exemption to train for a couple of hours a day, and we train a couple of hours a day at home on weekends. We had a selection camp about five weeks ago and I haven't seen everyone since, they've been back in their home states training," he said.
"We're ranked third in the world and we're trying to catch up with the two teams above us. But if a few things go our way, I think we can do really well in Tokyo.
"But it takes years and years of hard work (to prepare), and for the coaching staff too. It's about trying to find those right combinations. Because of the classification system in our sport, you're trying to fit the right guys on the court and trying to get that chemistry."
One teammate that Stibners is grateful to share the experience with again is Knowles, who is gearing up for his fifth Paralympics. Knowles claimed silver at the 2004 Games in Athens before Stibners joined the Rollers squad four years later.
The pair share a special bond, on and off the court.
"Tristan was a big believer in me when I first started. He's one of those really positive people and always sees the good in everything," Stibners said.
"I hit a couple of brick walls when I first getting close to the Aussie team, but he was very encouraging in me going overseas. And that turned out to be the best decision I ever made because I was then selected not long after into the team. So I have to thank him a lot for that."
Fellow Roller Hawk Hannah Dodd has also been selected to represent the Gliders women's side in Tokyo. It will be her second Paralympics, after competing in equestrian in 2012.
"I'm super excited to go back as a team athlete, rather than as an individual. I think that will be a really different experience," Dodd said.
"We're taking a really young team. The Gliders didn't qualify for Rio, so this is our first Games in nine years. We're stoked to be going, our main goal is to make crossovers. Anything after that will be a bonus."
