Great Britain was ecstatic as rowers Helen Glover and Heather Stanning won the first gold medal of the London 2012 Olympics for Team GB in the women's pair.

Clocking just seven minutes 27.13 seconds, it’s surprising to learn that duo only joined forces two years ago, and prior to 2008 Helen had never even stepped in a rowing boat.

From the start they dominated the competition and at one point were a full length ahead of their closest competitors Australia, who took silver, and New Zealand who were awarded bronze.

Heather, a captain in the Royal Artillery, told BBC Sport: “I want to collapse I'm so overjoyed.”

Her teammate Helen added: “We kidded ourselves that there was no pressure. The last thing we said to each other was 'it's just for us, it's just for us', but it was for the whole of the team and the whole of the country.

"Now we've finished we can say there was pressure; there was expectation. It's just brilliant. I hope the crowd really enjoyed today."
