Kristen Armstrong (not related to Lance) in a breakaway- woke up to a rainy race day for the women's olympic road race A couple of crashes Huge crowds! A break in the weather, some sun for the ladies! More crashes more rain love how GB's Armistead wore her pearl earrings- so classy :D Breakaways attempted all day. Finally 3 women got away- Olga from Russia, Vos from the Netherlands and Armistead from GB! Vos looked the strongest Final sprint for the line Vos takes it! Emotion afterwards still not sure why she was chewing her glasses.. gets lots of hugs realization sets in rain and tears mix Team USA Kristen Armstrong looked beat GB's Armistead was humble and excited to get Silver (first medal for the UK!) Overall a great race! Bravo!
