Speaking to BBC Sport, Gold medal-winning rowers Kat Copeland and Sophie Hosking were still to fully take in the scale of their achievements:
Kat Copeland: "I can't believe this is real, that we just won. We just won the Olympics! We're going to be on a stamp tomorrow! I've been trying all week not to think about it because it made me cry. I know this isn't the Oscars, but can I thank my mum and dad?"
Sophie Hosking: "It's something that we've been working on for so long, and there are so many people to thank. I just can't believe it's happened."

Sophie Hosking and Katherine Copeland have won gold in the women's lightweight double sculls at Eton Dorney.
The men's four have spoken about their win:
Alex Gregory: "It didn't feel real to be honest - we just did the race. It just doesn't feel real."
Pete Reed: "Double Olympic champion, I can't believe it. You run through everything in your mind before the race, you never think about afterwards. The hours we do, the hours the pain - it's all worth it."
Tom James: "I knew when we got off at the start and we got in to a rhythm that was good. It was unbelievable. It started chucking down with rain and I though 'this is for us, this is what we do' it's always chucking down with rain. It was our day."
Andrew Triggs Hodge: "This guys are the best rowers we have, we executed our plan - it was our masterpiece. It took four years to make that, four years training everyday.
"Every person here shouting, every person at home, every person who's picked up the floor each day. our families friends, you cannot believe how big the support group is. We owe a debt of thanks to everyone who helped us on our way."
Taking the lead from the start the British team kept just ahead of Australia throughout, leaving the Australians with silver and USA with the bronze.
Britain's Mark Hunter and Zac Purchase compete in the final of the lightweight men's double sculls today and they will be attempting to defend the title they won in Beijing four years ago.
Elsewhere, Alex Gregory, Tom James, Pete Reed and Andrew Triggs Hodge will battle it out in the men's four final.
Katherine Grainger and Anna Watkins told ITV News their triumphant victory in the women's double sculls was a tough race. Watkins said the home crowd was really helpful, and made the second half of the race much easier.
Grainger said winning her gold medal in front of a home crowd was "more special than I could ever hope it to be."
