Golden day for France - London 2012 - Swimming
France enjoyed a wonderful night in the pool with two Olympic golds while the second evening of competition also saw two world records smashed in the Aquatics Centre.
In October 2016, Zulfiya CHINSHANLO of Kazakhstan, competing in the Women's 53kg Weightlifting event, in which she ranked first and for which she was awarded the gold medal, has been disqualified from the Games of the XXX Olympiad.
Camille Muffat clinched the women's 400m Freestyle title with a wonderfully aggressive swim - as Great Britain's Rebecca Adlington took bronze - before, in the final race of the night, Yannick Agnel powered past USA's Ryan Lochte in the final 10m to hand them gold in the 4 x 100m Freestyle Relay.
The evening's action started with an equally-stunning display from USA's Dana Vollmer, who smashed the world record - she swam 55.98 - to claim gold in the 100m Butterfly.
Another world record went in the men's 100m Breaststroke as South African Cameron van der Burgh obliterated the opposition to win in 58.46.
Although the French, who have plenty of NBA-calibre talent in their squad, were able to match them for the first quarter, the defending champions quickly began to wear them down thereafter.
Kevin Durant led the Americans with 22 points while Kevin Love had 14 and Kobe Bryant 10. Durant added nine rebounds.
Marianne Vos edged out Lizzie Armitstead in a thrilling sprint finish to win the women's Road Race.
Vos, 25, needed all of her power to deny Great Britain star Armitstead a home victory at London 2012 after they and Russian Olga Zabelinskaya were left after a four-strong breakaway, guaranteeing themselves at least a medal after a wet 140km ride.
And it was Dutchwoman Vos who ended her six-year wait to add to her 2006 world title after five World Championship silvers with a time of 3:35.29.
China notched their sixth gold to continue their domination of the medals table.
Guo Wenjun was the recipient after coming first in the women's 10m Air Pistol.
Shooter Kimberly Rhode set US Olympic history as she won gold in the women's Skeet.
The 33-year-old set a new Olympic record in qualifying, with 74 hits out of 75, and went on to equal her own world record with a perfect 25 in the final for a total of 99 in front of a packed shotgun range at the Royal Artillery Barracks.
It means Rhode is the first American to win an individual sport medal at five consecutive Olympic Games.
Georgian Lashas Shavdatuashvili claimed the men's -66kg title with a narrow win over Hungarian Miklos Ungvari.
Wu cemented her place as one of the greatest female divers of all time as she also drew level with former synchro partner Guo Jingjing, who she teamed up with to win the past two Olympic crowns, with a record six medals at the Games.
The 26-year-old, whose early career was blighted by injury, could even surpass that mark next week when she and He go head-to-head in the individual springboard.
Lee Sung-jin, Ki Bo-bae and Choi Hyeonju defeated Chinese trio Cheng Ming, Fang Yuting and Xu Jing 210-209 on the last arrow in wet and windy conditions.
Hungary's Aron Szilagyi continued Hungary's impressive record in the men's Sabre Fencing by beating Italy's Diego Occhiuzzi in the final.
At Wimbledon, Novak Djokovic came from a set down to beat Italy's Fabio Fognini but women's second seed Agnieszka Radwanska was a shock first-round loser - going down 7-5 6-7 (5/7) 6-4.
