Great Britain's rowing pair Helen Glover and Heather Stanning won the first UK’s gold medal today, after they stormed to victory in front of 25,000 screaming fans at Dorney Lake. Glover, a former PE teacher Stanning and a Royal Artillery captain, from Lossiemouth, dedicated their success to the "whole country".
Here are the jubilant pair in their boat just after the race just finished. Heather Stanning lies back in the boat completely exhausted. Then it’s over to the podium where the pair receive their Olympic Gold medals and Helen is so overcome with emotion that Heather puts her arm round her. In honour of their achievement Postage stamps featuring Glover and Stanning will go on sale on Thursday.
The medal tally also has a bronze from The British men's eight rowing team, which includes 40-year-old Greg Searle.
And elsewhere Team GB’s have another busy day ahead of them. The men’s cycling time trials are currently going on over at Hampton Court with Bradley Wiggins and Chris Froome hoping to get a gold. Although it was sad news for the women’s Cyclists, Emma Pooley and Lizzie Armitstead as they failed to win a medal in the cycling time trial. Michael Jamieson and Andrew Willis will be taking part in the men's 200m breaststroke. And in gymnastics Dan Purvis will be hoping to achieve a podium finish in the individual all-around event.
