Wimbledon’s Sophie Hosking and teammate Kat Copeland produced an outstanding display to win the women’s lightweight double sculls and secure Team GB’s fourth rowing gold medal of London 2012.

Former Kingston Grammar School student Hosking and partner Copeland have only been rowing as a double for a year, but they looked like seasoned veterans as they destroyed the rest of the field in stunning style.

20-year-old track cyclist Laura Trott from Cheshunt claimed a gold medal in the women’s team pursuit on Saturday.

It was her first experience of a final at the Games, but it didn’t perturb the former Turnford School pupil one bit as she charged around the track with GB team-mates Dani King and Joanna Rowsell.

Today she is back at the velodrome for the women’s Omnium and a chance of becoming only the second woman in history to claim two gold medals at the same Olympics.
