"People say for road cycling that the Commonwealth Games aren't that big a deal but I am a Commonwealth Games champion and it is a big f***ing deal," Hosking told Channel 7.
It will be the famous words road cyclist Chloe Hosking will be remembered for after her post-race interview.
Hosking took the gold in this morning's women's road cycling with the help of her teammates who allowed her to sweep past the leading group in the final 200m.

It was an emotional win for the 27-year-old who eight years ago collected bronze in Delhi.
"To stand on the podium with the flag being raised and the anthem being played for me was just incredible," Hosking said.
"It's something I'll never forget," she said.
It was only at the start of April when Hosking was laying in a hospital bed in Belgium after a crash during the Tour of Flanders.
She was supposed to be heading back to Australia the following day to continue Commonwealth Games preparations.
While Hosking was on the ground after the crash thinking she might not be able to compete at a home Games, the doctors had other thoughts.
"The doctor sent me in for a scan really quickly, and then pretty much told me I was just being a drama queen," she said.
However, after everything that has happened in 2017 to Hosking, she is thankful her teammates were there to help her along.
"I wish all six of the girls could have 'Commonwealth Games winner' on their CV," she said.
"I really couldn't have won without them."
