Sir Chris Hoy
Six-time Olympic cycling champion on BBC One
It was phenomenal from GB's women's pursuit team. USA attacked at the start, but the Brits responded. Laura Trott produced a two-lap spell that turned things around, America lost a rider and the gap got bigger and bigger.
So much work has gone into this and it is great to see the hard work paying off.
Laura Trott may only be 24 but she became the first British woman to win three Olympic gold medals as Great Britain's women set a new world record to retain their team pursuit title in Rio.
Trott, Joanna Rowsell-Shand, Elinor Barker and Katie Archibald clocked four minutes 10.236 seconds to beat the United States in the final.
Trott won gold in the team pursuit and omnium at London 2012,
She could add a fourth when she defends her title in the latter on Tuesday as she closes in on Sir Chris Hoy's record of six Olympic gold medals.

Olympics + kindness of strangers = emotional kryptonite to the most shriveled of human spirits.
Ellis Hill's son Darrell is competing in Rio, throwing the shot-put for the United States.
A month ago his taxi driver dad was going to be watching from home in Pennsylvania, unable to afford to get out to Brasil.
Then he picked up passed passenger Liz Willock, who was excited to hear of she was being driven by the father of an Olympian and then gutted that Hill was going to miss out on seeing his son's finest moment in person.
"I believe you and I were fated to meet and I'm going to try to make this happen," Willock told Hill.
One online appeal, £5800 and two days later and Hill senior is off to watch his son.
Well done world. You did good.

Greg Rutherford proved his major championship mettle once again as he rose to the occasion after an injury-hit build up to Rio.
His final-round leap of 8.29m grabbed a bronze medal, just nine centimetres behind American gold-winner Jeff Henderson.
"I'm very disappointed. Bronze is not good enough for me," said Rutherford.

Mo Farah's gold medal was thrilling, wasn't it? But so was the commentary of Mike Costello inside the stadium for BBC Radio 5 live. Have a listen - it's epic.
Last night was London 2012's Super Saturday reloaded.
While Mo Farah defended his 10,000m title, Great Britain's other two gold winners from that heady summer's evening in the capital could not quite repeat their feats of four years ago.
Since then Jessica Ennis-Hill has married, had a baby, made a comeback and world gold.
However she was just edged out by Nafi Thiem of Belgium, who strung together personal bests in five of the seven events, including each of the last three to overhaul the defending champion by 35 points.

British athletics has never seen his like before.
It will be a long, long time before we see his like again.
Mo Farah won his third Olympic distance gold last night, to add to a collection that already includes five world titles.
Never mind entering the pantheon of greats. That was long ago.
Now, he is so at home that he is sizing up for new curtains.
