Elizabeth Armitstead

Britain's Elizabeth Armitstead rides through the drizzle during the women's cycling road race. Armitstead's silver was a boost for Britain after the team's men, including top sprinter Mark Cavendish, failed to make the top 20 in their road race on the first day of the games.STEFANO RELLANDINI / AFP
