– Gold medalist Victoria Pendleton spoke to the BBC
It was really hard with the excitement of the great job the girls did qualifying with a world record and then the guys smash the world record and win a gold medal - I was just, like, 'Focus, Vic, focus. You've still got a race'. But it was so hard. I can't believe it.
Thank you so much to everyone who's helped me get here. The crowd have been fantastic and it really helped me today.
Great Britain's Victoria Pendleton rode to glory in the women's keirin beating rival Anna Meares to take the gold at the velodrome in Olympic Park.
