Britain continued to dominate in the velodrome on Monday, as Jason Kenny claimed gold in the men's sprint.
The 24 year-old ended the jinx that had seen him lose every single race against his nemesis Gregory Bauge at the right time
He did it in front of his home crowd and on the sport's biggest stage to win track cycling's marquee event in supreme fashion and extend Britain's domination at the London Velodrome.
Kenny gave the British track cycling squad its fifth Olympic gold medal out of seven possible after outclassing Bauge in the final of the men's sprint.
The Bolton cyclist could not have dreamt of a better scenario for his maiden win against the three-time world champion, living up to huge expectations and proving that the British team made the right decision by entering him in the event instead of defending champion Chris Hoy.
"I just thought, 'If Chris is in my shoes, there's no way he loses this one.' It was just about justifying my place," Kenny said after dispatching Bauge with a 2-0 win in the best-of-three final.
"It felt amazing. It feels a bit surreal. It hasn't sunk in yet, getting dragged here, there and everywhere."
Meanwhile, Victoria Pendleton's Olympic odyssey was set to continue into the final day of the London track programme after she advanced to the semi-finals of the women's sprint.
Defending champion and six-time world sprint champion Pendleton advanced with a 2-0 best-of-three quarter-final win over Olga Panarina of Belarus.
Laura Trott won her second event in the women's omnium with victory in the elimination race.
