Team GB's Olympic female medal winners

Take a good look at the women below, because they're in the process of changing the landscape of sport forever. Today's Olympic heroes and tomorrow's sporting legends, they're the female athletes who are leading Team GB's medal successes at the London Olympics 2012. From Jessica Ennis' smooth glide to gold medal victory in the heptathlon to Rebecca Adlington's hard-won double bronze in freestyle swimming, these women are proof that 'Girl Power' (the real, non-cringe-making stuff) exists, and is as strong, inspirational and downright determined to succeed as ever. Here, we pay tribute to Team GB's women - those who came, saw, conquered and took home a medal.
