Tokyo Olympics 2021: Every Team GB medal winner so far as Tom Dean and Duncan Scott take gold and silver

Tokyo Olympics 2021: Every Team GB medal winner so far as Tom Dean and Duncan Scott take gold and silver

Great Britain has become accustomed to Olympic success.

In Rio in 2016, Team GB won 67 medals - 27 of them gold - to finish in second place in the medal table behind the United States and ahead of China.

That record haul was two more medals than they managed at London 2012, which followed on from 51 medals won by British athletes in Beijing in 2008.

UK Sport, the body which funds the Olympic programme through National Lottery funding, has said in the build-up to the Games that there is likely to be a dip of sorts in Tokyo and has set a broad target range of between 45 and 70 medals.

Reaching the heights of five years ago looks unlikely but Team GB have still arrived in Japan with plenty of leading medal contenders.

After no medals on day one, GB got off the mark two on Sunday, with judoka Chelsie Giles claiming -52kg bronze following her win over Switzerland's Fabienne Kocher and Bradly Sinden having to settle for taekwondo -68kg silver following a dramatic final defeat by Uzbekistan's Ulugbek Rashitov.

On what has now been christened ‘Magic Monday’, the dominant Adam Peaty successfully defended his 100m breastsroke title, Tom Daley finally ended his wait for Olympic gold alongside Matty Lee and Tom Pidcock claimed glory in the cross-country mountain biking before Lauren Williams took silver in the women’s taekwondo -67kg division.

Then early on day four, GB’s Georgia Taylor-Brown fought back from a puncture in brilliant fashion to take silver in the women’s triathlon. There was another stunning result in the pool as Tom Dean and Duncan Scott secured Britain’s first one-two finish in an Olympic swimming event since 1908 in the men’s 200m freestyle final.

Here is a full list of medals won for Britain in Tokyo so far...

Tom Dean (gold) - men’s 200m freestyle

Adam Peaty (gold) - men’s 100m breaststroke

Tom Daley & Matty Lee (gold) -men’s synchronised 10m platform

Tom Pidcock (gold) -men’s cross-country mountain biking

Duncan Scott (silver) - men’s 200m freestyle

Georgia Taylor-Brown (silver) - women’s triathlon

Alex Yee (silver) - men’s triathlon

Lauren Williams (silver) - women’s -67kg taekwondo

Bradly Sinden (silver) - men’s -68kg taekwondo
