Bradley Wiggins and Chris Froome have added two medals to the Team GB tally today in the mens Olympic time trials.

Wiggins cruised to victory to take gold with Froome finishing in third to bag a bronze medal for the squad.

Wiggins’ gold medal also broke Steve Redgrave’s historic medal winning record of five gold medals at Olympic events.

The Tour de France winner clocked in at 50 minutes and 39 seconds for the 44km course.

“I don’t think my sporting career will ever top this now,” said Wiggins.

“That’s it. It will never, never get better than that. Incredible.”

He added: “It had to be gold today or nothing. What’s the point of seven medals if they’re not the right colour?

His win has put renewed faith in to the Team GB squad, which had no gold medals before today’s events.

Ex-British cyclist, Chris Boardman who inspired a young Bradley Wiggins said, “His sporting performances this year have been unprecedented,”

“The greatest British cyclist of all time, I have no qualms about saying that. One of the top British sportsmen, also.”

Team GB also landed a gold medal in the Womens rowing earlier on today, leading from start to finish and completing the race in a time of 27.13 seconds.
