Lizzie Armitstead's family have expressed their delight after she claimed Great Britain's first medal of London 2012.
The cyclist from West Yorkshire, who did not get into cycling until she was 16, claimed silver in the women's road race after a sprint finish on the Mall.
"It is more than we can have hoped for."
Her grandmother, Marjorie Dunn, sporting a t shirt with "I'm Lizzie's Grandma" emblazoned across the front, added: "A granddaughter who is an Olympian is something very, very special."
"I was disappointed and delighted - I knew she wanted the gold. I am tearful, I am delighted."
Olympic medallist Rebecca Adlington is set to receive a special homecoming next month in her home town of Mansfield.
Yorkshire athletes won a total of 12 Olympic medals - more than many countries. The Tykes won seven gold, two silver and three bronze medals
