Seventh Medal – Gold, awarded to the fabulous Bradley Wiggins as he finished first place in the cycling time trial.

Eighth Medal – Bronze, awarded to the incredible Christopher Froome in the same cycling time trial as Brad Wiggins.

Today’s victories have meant that Team GB have leapt from place 21 to place 10! GO TEAM GB!

Away from all the serious medal competition comes some trivia that we’ve heard about the games.

• BOTTLES of Pepsi cola and Nike T-shirts won’t be allowed inside Olympic venues, it has turned out due to the fact that their Olympic sponsors and well known rivals have donated so much to the games, organisers don’t want to upset them.

• McDonald’s have opened up their biggest restaurant at the Olympic site however it has received some really mixed reviews as some people think it’s ironic to offer such ‘unhealthy’ food to the world’s top athletes!

• Over 10,000 fake Olympic flags were seized at Heathrow this week after LOCOG (London Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games) confirmed they were not the real deal.

Ok so here are the must-watch events tonight involving GB athletes:

• Men's hockey: GB vs South Africa at 4:00pm

• Men's beach volleyball: GB vs Norway 5:30pm

• Men's football: GB vs Uruguay at 7:45pm

• Men's gymnastics all-round: Finishes at around 6:45pm and Kristian Thomas is in medal contention

• Women's volleyball: GB vs Italy starts ANY SECOND NOW

• Swimming: With Michael Jamieson an enormous chance for gold in the men's 200m breaststroke
