All the Olympic venues were packed with activity – but the Olympic Park in particular was flooded with fans and supporters from all over the world eager to support their country and cheer on their favourite athletes.
Canadian fans saw their women’s Track Cycling team win a bronze medal in the Team Pursuit at the Velodrome: 'We filmed it all, it was amazing. We had goose bumps, it was so electrifying – a big day for us!'
Meanwhile, Usain Bolt fans dressed in Jamaican colours to see him qualify for the next round of men's 100m in the Olympic Stadium.
Fans of women’s Hockey had a great time at the Riverbank Arena watching Japan go head to head against Belgium, and then GB against China: 'It’s quite festivally, a really good buzz!', they said of their experience.
As well as thousands of fans, plenty of famous faces could be spotted in the Olympic Park today –including Team GB kit designer Stella McCartney, who watched on as her father Paul lead a rendition of ‘Hey Jude’ in the Velodrome. Cycling fans not only enjoyed a Beatles song, but also saw GB's Joanna Rowsell, Dani King and Laura Trott smash the world record on their way to victory in the women's Team Pursuit. One spectator exclaimed: 'It was electric when the girls won their gold. Absolutely brilliant!'
All in all, today will be a hard act to follow – but tomorrow there are an additional 23 medals to win, bringing the total for the weekend up to 48.
