Well, since Friday's Team Sprint gold medal, Team GB has swept the board in the cycling at the Olympics!
It makes us feel so proud at the University of Southampton to have helped the team achieve this. Everything from low-drag skinsuits, to optimising each cyclists position in the wind tunnel, has boosted both the performance and confidence of these world-beating athletes.
Of course, all of this comes down to solid engineering, so if you want to learn how to do this, or design Formula One cars or America's Cup yachts, why not study engineering.
Team GB's success may well change society, here's to more success in the run-up to London 2012!
