.....London 2012 moment. Great Britain won six gold medals in their most successful day at an Olympics in 104 years. The rowers started the celebrations with gold in the men's four and the women's lightweight double sculls.The women's team pursuiters added track cycling gold in the London Velodrome. Then, Jessica Ennis, Greg Rutherford and Mo Farah capped a momentous day by winning the heptathlon, long jump and 10,000m at a jubilant Olympic Stadium. And I saw it all live on TV!
Jeff Henderson out-jumps Greg Rutherford: Great Britain's Greg Rutherford (R) failed to defend his Olympic gold and had to settle for a bronze after USA's Jeff Henderson took home the men's long jump title. Rutherford is the reigning world, European and Commonwealth champion and was a favorite to win this event.
Mitchell Watt celebrates winning silver in the final of the men's long jump. But in these Olympics, fate does not just meet Great Britain half-way, it home delivers. Red-headed Briton Greg Rutherford had already stuck what would survive as the gold medal winning jump. At 8.31, it was the shortest winning jump at the Olympics since Munich 1972. Watt twice leapt to better it, but could not. He knew it before Omega did. So Greg Rutherford won gold in the long jump.
