Lizzie Armitstead wins Team GB's first medal
Success in the women's road race brings Team GB their first medal.
Elizabeth Armitstead has won Team GB's first medal of the 2012 Olympics, claiming silver in the women's cycling road race.
Battling it out on the rain-soaked streets of London, Armitstead rode a fantastic race to cross the line behind Marianne Vos.
"I'm a bit shocked... I'm so happy it came off," a breathless Armitstead said afterwards, crediting her decision to go with the early breakaway.
Bronze was taken by Russian Olga Zabelinskaya who was the third member of a breakaway group that held off the chasing pack for the final hour of the race.
"Lizzie did a really good job in the break and she also had a good sprint but I'm really happy with the win," said Vos
Well done Lizzie. I felt sick with excitment. Well done to all the Ladies. Don't know how you do it. From Elle Ford.
Well bone Lizzie . What a disgrace that the BBC didnt even iterview you after your success.
