Wiggins takes Gold

Congratulations to Bradley Wiggins who followed up his Tour de France victory with olympic gold in the cycling men's time trial event, finishing in 50 minutes 39 seconds for the 44km course.
This gave him a 42 seconds lead over Germany's Tony Martin who took silver. Congratulations also to Chris Froome, runner-up to Wiggins in Paris, who took the bronze.

Today's win takes Wiggins to seven Olympic medals - four golds, a silver and two bronzes - passing the six medal haul of rowing champion Sir Steve Redgrave.
Congratulations also to team GB swimmer Michael Jamieson who has won a silver medal for Britain in the 200m breaststroke event, setting a new  British record of two minutes 8.2 seconds for the event in his semi-final.
