Welsh Olympic Gold #1 - Nicole Cooke

This nearly passed me by ... Nicole Cooke, Gold Medal at the Beijing Olympics 2008 for winning the Women's 78.5-mile Road Race in 32 minutes and 24 seconds.

Her reaction to being the first Welsh gold since 1972 ...


PS: Keep an eye on the other Welsh hope, David Davies, who's up for gold in the 1,500m freestyle (current Commonwealth holder beating arch nemesis Grant Hackett (Aus) and bronze in Athens) and the crazy sounding Olympic 10k open water in the rowing water.
