The Olympic hosts enjoyed a huge day, leading all nations with 10 medals earned. After a somewhat slow start to these Summer Games, Great Britain is gaining steam.
The men's and women's cycling squads added to the program's growing medal collection, as both earned gold in team pursuit. Edward Clancy secured an individual cycling medal in the men's omnium.
Christine Ohuruogu won silver in the women's 400-meter run. Although gymnastics favorite Louis Smith failed to win gold on the pommel horse, he took silver and GB teammate Max Whitlock won bronze.
On the water, Ben Ainslie won gold in sailing (men's finn) and GB took silver in men's star.
The mixed doubles tennis tandem of Andy Murray and Laura Robson grabbed a silver medal. Of course, the story of the day must be Murray's domination of Roger Federer for the men's singles gold.
Finally, Murray was able to hear his home crowd roar as he won at the All England Club.
"It has been the best week of my tennis career by a mile," said Murray, as quoted by the AP. "I've had a lot of tough losses. This is the best way to come back from the Wimbledon final. I'll never forget it."
