Medal haul rises again

hoy and the boys

Team GB’s “superb performances” have given them “great momentum”, sports minister Hugh Robertson has said as they leapt up the Olympic medal table.

They took first and second place in the men’s canoe slalom and minutes later won a gold in the shooting. The other silvers came in judo and rowing.

Cyclist Sir Chris Hoy’s sprint team took GB’s third gold of the day.

But Victoria Pendleton and Jess Varnish were disqualified from the women’s team sprint for an infringement.
