Shelly-Ann Fraser took Olympic gold in the women's 100m, leading home an unprecedented clean sweep for Jamaica.
Fraser finished in a time of 10.78 seconds, with her compatriots Sherone Simpson and Kerron Stewart sharing the silver medal after a dead heat.
"I'm so excited. I never dreamed this could happen to me," Fraser said.
Britain's Jeanette Kwakye was the only European athlete to make the final, and she performed above expectations with a personal best time of 11.14 for sixth.
