The Women's Cycling

The women's cycling on Sunday was a thrilling race. Here are the three medalists in the order they crossed the finishing line. Marianne Vos of the Netherlands won the gold, Lizzie Armistead the silver, and winning Great Britain's first medal of the game. The bronze went to Olga Zabelinskaya of Russia. The weather was not great with heavy rain, and many riders just had bad luck with so many punctures and several tumbles. It was a hard race, a well deserved win for these three.

I watched it on the telly, was hoping that Emma Johansson would do one better from Peking where she won Silver, but unfortunately she had a flat tire at the end of the race. Congrats to Lizzie.

Great action photo, Mo. I was hoping that the weather would be better for the games, but it appears that London's rotten 2012 weather has returned.
