2nd Olympic Gold for the UK in Athens

Cyclist Chris Hoy has this afternoon won a Gold medal in the men's cycling 1km time trial, with a time of one minute 0.711 seconds - the fastest-ever time at sea level. He has his own official website here, although the photos are VERY slow to load, but the wait is worth it (for other fine looking Olympians, you can visit Hot Olympians - link thru BoiFromTroy).

To bring this back down to earth, the first Gold for the UK was won yesterday in the Yngling class Sailing competition by our team comprising Shirley Robertson, Sarah Webb and Sarah Ayton.

Congratulations to all four of these Gold Medal winners and to the other UK medal winners. Good luck for the rest of the Athens Games!
