Medal emotions: Team GB's winning reactions
Have you ever wondered what it feels like to win an Olympic medal?
Whether it is delight, shock or relief the full range of emotions have been seen across the faces of the Team GB athletes.
We've seen joy on the faces of some silver medal winners, while others could not hide their disappointment of missing out on gold.
After working and focusing for four years on the Olympics, when that finish line is crossed the moment comes when the athletes realise what they have achieved.
Take a look through the images below to get an idea of how some of the Team GB athletes have felt when they know they have won a medal, whether it is gold, silver or bronze.
Thankyou team GB and athletes from the rest of the world for what has thus far been a fantastic sporting spectacle and a much needed escape from the relentless economic doom. Politicians take note - Legacy is not something to use as political spin. If you put in half as much work, dedication and sacrifice as any one of these athletes then maybe you would justify the vote that put you where you are. Go team GB !
Third in the medal league table – an amazing result, well done team GB. A great example of what can happen to a countries standing when it is willing to invests in its young talent, when it is willing to believe in its own people’s ability to be among the best in the world. We are seeing the results and benefits of our willingness 10 years ago, via lottery and treasury funding, to invest & support sport – If we were willing to do the same for our industry, manufacturing and infrastructure maybe our whole economy could return to its place as the third largest in the world
8 spam, MSN get your act together this is pathetic!
Apart from that, fantastic Olympics, great results from Team GB even the guys who did not get the medals they were going for, all performed superbly! We are so proud of you all!
Why do a page like this, if it's not going to get updated with the rest of the winners?
Brilliant to see the moment when the athlete realises what has been achieved, but why not complete the job?
Why not update, with the rest of the winners?

Seems a bit messy but you're not allowed to post links!
You can see all the medal winners.
Thanks MSN, or whoever took the time to put it all together.
