Twenty-four hours after she won gold in the women's omnium, British cyclist Laura Trott scored an even more enviable prize – a date with Prince Harry.
Harry watched Laura, 20, ride to victory and was so impressed with her athleticism he asked her out the following day.
The prince took Laura to the final of his favourite sport, the women's beach volleyball, where they spent the day laughing and chatting.
Laura, a double gold medal winner, is certainly Harry's type – the prince almost exclusively dates leggy blondes.
Harry and Laura seemed to get along like a house on fire.
