Max Pendleton described his daughter Victoria's performance to take gold in the women's keirin as "staggering".
World champion Anna Meares made an early move as soon as the pace-setting bike went off the track, but Victoria Pendleton accelerated from one-and-a-half laps to go and took to the front before sensationally pulling away to claim her second Olympic gold.
Meares, of Australia, finished in fifth place.
Victoria Pendleton told the BBC: "I can barely believe it actually right now."
- GOLD: Victoria Pendleton, Great Britain
