Some did not think they'd live to see the day the British would trump gymnastics powerhouses Russia (and Japan for a couple of minutes!) in the sport's modern era, but my oh my did the young lads from Team Great Britain deliver.
Buoyed by a roaring, thunderous home crowd, Kristian Thomas, Sam Oldham, Daniel Purvis, Louis Smith and Max Whitlock gave the performances of their lives in the men's team final, driving home their worthiness of a medal with three stunning floor routines in the last rotation.
Team GB was lying second in the medals after that until an inquiry from Japan regarding Kohei Uchimura's pommel start value pushed the Japanese ahead and left the British with bronze (and the poor Ukranians out of the medals in fourth after 10 minutes of celebrations, surely among the most dramatic of team finals).
But, it was a stupendous finish for the Brits nonetheless, bringing a century-long drought of team medals to an end.
It was a difficult decision on who should top this list, but this bronze medal was as shocking as Maroney's silver, held even more historical significance, and was made all the more heartwarming given that this was the London Olympics after all.
Well done, Great Britain!
