Great Britain enjoyed a mammoth day of action on Thursday, claiming five medals, including two gold, with the country's big guns threatening more success.
The medal rush was kicked off by the men's lightweight four, who claimed silver in a sensational final on Dorney Lake.
The four man crew of Chris Bartley, Rob Williams and brothers Richard and Peter Chambers were pipped to the gold by world champions South Africa, but could not be faulted in their efforts as they brought more success to the water for Team GB.
After a slow start, they soon found their rhythm and overtook leading crew Denmark, who started slipping away as the race hit it's climax. However, following in their wake was the powerful South African side, who kept their power dry for a final burst for glory.
The silver kicked off what would be a great day for Team GB, and was soon followed by another silver and a brilliant gold, as Britain cleaned-up in the C2 canoe slalom.
Spurred on by their shortcomings in the individual event, Richard Houslow and David Florence powered through the Lee Valley course to secure silver, behind the dominant Etienne Stott and Tim Baillie who grabbed gold in impressive form.
While the nation rejoice in Britain's ruling of the waves, top marksman Peter Wilson made it four golds for Team GB, as he added the Olympic title to his world record in the double trap shooting.
The 25 year-old took control of the competition from the start, taking a three point leading into the final. In a tense final shoot-out he missed five shots, but his opponents failed to take advantage, and he took the crown.
An excellent day for Team GB was made better as Gemma Gibbons picked up an unlikely silver in the women's 78kg judo final, where she impressively beat Audrey Tcheumeo in the semis.
