The Greatest Night in British Athletics History.

That about says it all. In front of a raucous, partisan crowd the British athletes ran and soared to a night none of the 80,000 in attendance will ever forget.

Here are your Gold Medalists of the Night:

  • Jessica Ennis- Britain Golden Girl blows away the field in the Heptathlon
  • Greg Rutherford- British Long Jumper stuns the home crowd with a win
  • Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce- Diminutive Jamaican repeats in the Women's 100-meter dash
  • Mo Farah- An emotional moment as British 10,000 runner powers home to gold with USA's Galen Rupp a magnificent silver
