Impressive performances from the first GB medallists - judo bronze and taekwondo silver. :)

Add to that a triathlon silver! (Why the heck did they start the race when half the field still had a large boat in front of them?!)

Also, the France v South Africa men's football match was a good one!

That was a crazy back-and-forth match!

And now we have a gold. What a machine Adam Peaty is!

Peaty is a machine - he just seems like he will never stop.

The swimming rivalry with Australia is heating up nicely! 😄 Both teams have had successes to brag about so far. First, congratulations to Ariarne Titmus for doing something no other female swimmer has done against Katie Ledecky - finish in front of her! 😄 Australia also won the Women's 4 x 100m Freestyle Relay too! We held up our end of the bargain by winning the Men's 4 x 100m Freestyle Relay and the Men's 400m Individual Medley (and got the silver in the same event). Lots more head-to-head action to come...

At the moment, we have 6 golds, 2 silvers, and 4 bronzes - great work so far!

Gold medals coming out of our ears this morning! So happy for Tom Daley who finally got one at his fourth Olympics - I was in tears watching their celebrations! Then we got another in the mountain biking (our first ever medal in that event). And we have a second taekwondo finalist later - will it be gold or silver?

Agreed, it is lovely to see Tom Daley finally achieve that gold. Well done to him and his dive partner. 

It feels like the British team are finding their stride now, in a range of different events. 

Also, can we give a shout-out to the women's street skate-boarding medallists, who have just made history for the youngest trio of medal winners? Gold and bronze went to Japan with a 13 year old and 16 year old, and the silver medallist from Brazil is also only 13. Amazing to be achieving Olympic medals at such young ages.

And I haven't even mentioned Sky Brown yet, who'll be competing for GB in the park skateboarding and will set a record as our youngest ever Olympian as she's only 13 as well. Good job the Games are in the summer holidays so it doesn't disrupt anyone's school schedule :D

It was another silver, and we have also picked up a second in the triathlon!
