Rowers Helen Glover and Heather Stanning have brought home Team GB's first gold medal of the Olympics.

The pair were favourites to win and dominated the women's pair final from start to finish.

They're the first British women to win Gold in rowing. They've never competed in an Olympics before and Helen only started rowing four years ago.

Australia got silver whilst New Zealand, the defending World Champions, took bronze.
