GOLD – Super Saturday Winners!

What with all the gold medals flying about yesterday and The Sportist having to go out and be sociable we can barely keep up congratulating all the amazing women who became Olympic winners yesterday. However we’ll give it a go now!

Great Britain’s ladies cycling team continued the nation’s Gold Medal success on Saturday with victory in the women’s team pursuit.The three lady team of Dani King, Laura Trott and Diana Roswell clocked a world record time of 3:14:051 to beat out nearest competitors, the USA, by more than 5 seconds.

 Following Katherine Copeland and Sophie Hosking’s victory in the lightweight double sculls (and my new favourite people in the world), Great Britain’s women continue to shine across these Olympic games.  If you haven’t seen Copeland and Hosking’s post race interview and medal ceremony click this now for an example of just what it means to get gold at the Olympics.
Kudos, girls!
