Team GB Gold Medal winner Jessica Ennis prepares for the long jump during the heptathlon in the London 2012 Olympics I am wonderfully privileged to be in the same species as these people!

Team GB had the night of all nights as Jesssica Ennis (heptathlon), Greg Rutherford (long jump) and Mo Farah (10,000m) all won gold to send the crowd crazy in the Olympic stadium. Jessica Ennis got things started with a great 1500m victory to win the heptathlon title in style. That was followed by the shock result of the night - Greg Rutherford leaping a huge 8m 31cm to win gold in the long jump. Mo Farah capped the night off with a magnificent victory in the 10,000m final.
