Olympics: Fantastic Day One

Russia is off the mark with the first medal - Gold - in the Men's Judo, -60 kg. category but the first Gold of the Games went to China's Yi Siling in the Women's Shooting, 10 m. air rifle. On day one 13 records fell and the youngest medal winner was China's 16-year-old Ye Shiwen.

Aleksandr Vinokurov, from Kazakhstan, stunned the home crowds in the Surrey countryside sprinting up Box Hill and finishing the Men's Cycling Road race with the Gold. At 38 years of age, he is to date the oldest medal winner, over twice the age of the PR China's Ye Shiwen, 16 - Women's Swimming 400 metres individual medley - Gold, World Record.

The first Gold went to the PR China's Yi Siling, 23, who won the Women's Shooting 10m. air rifle over Poland's Sylwia Bogacka, whose mistake after the eighth shot saw her lose the lead, which she was never to regain.

13 records fell on Day One, 3 World Records and 10 Olympic Records in Swimming, rowing and archery, where the Men's team from the Republic of Korea shone through, Im Dong-hyun breaking his own 78-arrow record by three points and he, Kim Bibmin and Oh Jin-hyek broke the World Record by 18 points.
