WA javelin star Kim Mickle returned to Perth last night, still finding it hard to believe she had won a world championships silver medal.
Still wearing the jacket her Australian teammates had soaked in champagne the night before, Mickle greeted cheering friends and family fresh from her Moscow triumph.
And the likeable 28-year-old was ready to celebrate.
"Being a Tuesday night it is pretty rough for my family because they all have to work tomorrow but yeah, look, I am keen for anything," she said.
"I am high on life so anywhere and everywhere we'll go."
Mickle said she had been overwhelmed by the response to the highlight of her career, joking she had achieved a personal best in her status notifications.
"I opened up my Facebook and my hotmail today and it was ridiculous," she said.
"I haven't been able to get through all the messages and reply to anyone.
"The overwhelming support is amazing and I can't believe this has happened to me."
Mickle said her success would take time to sink in.
"Every time I close my eyes I dream about it, but they were my dreams before the event so it kind of just feels like I am still hoping for it," she said.
"It is a dream come true.
"I reckon having a few days at home and let it sink in."
And she already has her eye on Louise McPaul-Currey's national record of 66.8m and Commonwealth Games glory.
"I will have a couple of weeks of down time, rest the old body and then straight back into it," she said.
"My goal for this event, funnily enough, was to break the Australian record, not to win a medal.
"So now my new goal is to win Com Games and get that Aussie record."When that last throw came out and it was 66.6 and the Australian record is 66.8 I thought I had it. It was almost a bit disappointing but it was such a great moment."
