Day five of the Olympics turned out to be extremely rewarding for the highly motivated athletes in Team GB, taking home a total of six medals. Compared to the London 2012 Olympics the team has already secured more medals at this point, but there are still more events to come.
In the cycling, category, Chris Froome powered through securing a modest bronze in the time trial finishing in 1:13:17. Joe Clarke left his competitors stuck in the water after setting an unbeatable time in the canoe slalom category, claiming a gold for Britain. Team GB also picked up another bronze medal in the shooting category thanks to the incredible accurate sharpshooter Steven Scott.
Moving into the Judo category, Olympic athlete Sally Conway secured a bronze medal. Max Whitlock was able to secure a bronze medal in the men’s all-round gymnastics category.
And finally, Team GB made even more history yesterday in the synchronised diving title. Jack Laughter and Chris Mears brought home the first-ever title in the synchronised 3m springboard. Day five was a rather successful day for Team GB; now we await the results of Day Six and the potential for more medals.
