Gold Rush for Great Britain – Six in One Day!

Super Saturday Great Britain Olympic Gold Medals 2012 The Vibes

Team GB won six gold medals and a silver on Day Eight of the Olympics, taking the Great British Goldrush to 14, with 7 silver and 8 bronze. Super Saturday marks the UK’s best performance in the Olympiad for over a century. The crowd in the stadium went wild as Mo Farah and Jessica Ennis stole the show. There’s a wonderful sense of pride in Britain tonight, not least because we are the host nation, and on every television there are tears of joy, shock and awe as the athletes realise their own achievements.

Women’s Heptathlon – Jessica Ennis
Men’s Longjump – Greg Rutherford
Men’s 10,000m – Mo Farah
Women’s Lightweight Double Sculls – Sophie Hosking and Katherine Copeland
Men’s Four – Andy Triggs Hodge, Pete Reed, Andy Gregory and Tom James

Kind of makes up for the Japanese complaints about their gymnastic placing, depriving Britain and the Ukraine of their original medals. Japan, you were really crap. (So much for good grace and sportsmanship…)

  1. Awesome, Awesome day for GB.

    Shame about the GB footballing. We are cursed when it comes to penalties, lol. I was actually laughing by the end of it.

    • Well we can’t take it all too seriously! Unless it’s me trying to bump up my daily traffic by mentioning The Olympics. Not that I’d do that 😉

  2. Impressive! I love to see Great Britain moving up the medals count

    • Yes, and we got another one today! At this rate the Closing Ceremony is going to be the best night of the year. And Pink Floyd live! I must be dreaming….

Let me know what you think...
