We'd dubbed today "Super Saturday" because the British press corps had high hopes of a strong performance today by Team GB.
Sure enough, Great Britain enjoyed a great morning messing about in boats, winning 3 medals before breakfast in what's sure to be remembered as an historic day for British sport.
Cath Bishop and Katherine Grainger won silver in the coxless pair and Sarah Winckless and Elise Laverick took double sculls bronze.
But the best story of all, of course, is Matthew Pinsent claiming his fourth Olympic gold, pipping Canada in the coxless four by the narrowest of margins.
Team mate James Cracknell summed up the entire Olympic experience -- endurance, expectation, elation -- in one sentence. "There are four years of emotion gone into that six minutes," he said.
Its been an unforgettable morning -- and it's going to be a busy afternoon.
