As the London 2012 Olympic Games press on, Saturday and Sunday's exciting events propelled British athletes to the forefront.

Although China leads with the most medals – 61, including 30 gold, 17 silver and 14 bronze – Team GB's victories helped boost the host country's morale with an outpouring of spirit and success during days 9 and 10 of the Games.

Team USA experienced highs and lows as well, as the medal count grew to 57 – 27 gold, 14 silver and 16 bronze – with Serena Williams taking home two gold medals and fan favorite McKayla Maroney's surprising finish in the women's vault final.

Andy Murray Defeats Roger Federer to Win Olympic Gold

Andy Murray Defeats Roger Federer to Win Olympic Gold

Originally posted 08/05/2012 12:30PM

Tennis player Andy Murray won Olympic gold (and revenge!) Sunday when he unseated world champion, Roger Federer, who beat him at Wimbledon last month.

After four losses (three to Federer) in the Grand Slam finals, Murray surprised spectators when he defeated Federer 6-2, 6-1, 6-4 to win the men's single finals at the Summer Games.

"The atmosphere was unbelievable," Murray, who is Scottish, said of the crown in London. "They helped me get a few extra miles an hour on the last couple of serves, that's for sure. The adrenaline was pumping. I went for some big serves and got them. To be fair the whole week they've been amazing."

Federer won the silver medal for Switzerland while Juan Martin del Potro of Argentina was awarded bronze.

It was something of a sister act for the Duchess of Cambridge on Sunday at Wimbledon: She had Pippa by her side when she cheered on Brit Andy Murray at the men's final.

Big tennis fans (and players), Kate, 30, and Pippa, 28, clapped enthusiastically as Murray took the early lead against Roger Federer, and they were seen sharing a giggle in the royal box above Centre Court.

In the end, though, Federer bested Murray and took home his seventh Wimbledon title, and the sisters stood as Murray gave an emotional speech after his defeat.
