Wow what a day it was at Rio yesterday! Eight Golds, Six Silvers and Seven Bronze! I was kept well entertained all day and didn't go to my bed until coverage ended at 1am. Great stuff!
Lets start with the velodrome and it was gold for Lora Turnham and Corrine Hall!
Bronze in the same event for Sophie Thornhill and Helen Scott! Second medal of the games for them! Great performance!
Jody Cundy, Jon-Allan Butterworth and Louis Rolfe take gold in the team pursuit! What an exciting race it was...I was on the edge of my seat! Jon-Allan is the first former veteran to win gold for GB and on such a memorable day! *sniffles*
Silver for Neil Fachie and Pete Mitchell!
Athletics next and gold for the awesome Richard Whitehead in the 100 metres!
OK I admit it, I cried watching Dave Henson come from last to win bronze in the same race. For an injured soldier to take a medal on 9/11...that was so special. *blubbers*
Jo Butterfield makes it three for the military with gold in the club throwing!
Rowing next and it was gold for Rachel Morris!
The Coxed Fours take gold!
