RIO DE JANEIRO -- Forget Super Saturday, this is now weve-run-out-of-superlatives Sunday.Fresh off the back of three gold medals on Saturday, the most remarkable cross-sport performance from Great Britain saw them soar to second in the medal table. The British bulldog spirit relegated China to third with only the U.S. ahead of them.Fans didnt dare breathe, let alone turn away from the Olympics action as those in blue, red and white stuck their flag into the heart of the Games with a run of six golds, beginning with Max Whitlock making history and ending with Andy Murray making history, with Justin Rose making history in between for good measure.It was a day that heralded in the new guard, both in a sporting and individualistic sense, across a remarkable range of sports.The focus traditionally switches to the track and field in the second week, but at the halfway mark in these Games, Great Britain are looking to exceed their medal target of 48, with 38 -- excluding Giles Scotts pending gold in sailing, which will be confirmed on Tuesday -- already guaranteed. That tally surpasses the 37 medal haul at the end of the corresponding day at London 2012 and the 25 in Beijing.At this rate, they will be charged for excess baggage on their flights home from Rio.But it was the day of firsts, which makes this extra special. Golf was a tournament shunned by some of the top players in the world under the cloud of the Zika outbreak yet Rose bought into the Team GB mentality from the start.He wanted to be in the Village, he wanted to be in and around his GB teammates and ensured he was at the opening ceremony. He spent time as a fan at the swimming on opening weekend. He wanted to glean everything possible out of the Olympic experience, including gold.On Thursday, he struck the first hole-in-one in Olympic history. On Sunday afternoon, his score of 16-under secured the first Olympic golf gold since 1904. He is the sports modern Olympics pioneer. Even Jordan Spieth, back home in the U.S., tweeted his desire to compete at Tokyo 2020.Olympic champion? That has a cool ring to it, Rose said afterward. I have had a few fitness issues this year and in the back of mind I have wanted to be 100 percent for Rio. I have done a lot of hard work, sacrificed a lot of hours in the gym to get myself to feel good.Things started to trend up this week, I felt really strong, my recovery was great, each day I came out playing my best golf.Honestly this is just a dream come true, I have been thinking about Rio for a long, long time. It is just crazy, just so good.While Rose was making history on the Olympics golf course, gymnast Whitlock was carving out his own slice. First, he triumphed in the mens floor, an event in which he had thought bronze was no more than an outside possibility, as three of his fancied rivals stumbled and slipped in a rraucous arena.ddddddddddddWhitlock was actually jeered at the end of his routine because the partisan Brazilian crowd were desperate for their heroes, Diego Hypolito and Arthur Mariano -- who took silver and bronze -- to succeed. It was, at least, a backhanded compliment.Then he had to find some calm and reset, to take on the pommel horse and his fierce rival: fellow Briton Louis Smith. Whitlock did so in style with an impressive routine, celebrating while a distraught Smith, who took silver, could only look away.After becoming the first Briton to win an all-round gymnastics medal in 108 years earlier in these Games, Whitlock becomes the first from his nation to win a gymnastics gold. Two in two hours is simply audacious.Ive completely outdone myself. Its incredible, he said. The floor was a surprise. It was quite difficult to come back for the second event -- I couldnt take in what I had just done. This has outdone all of my expectations and I am proud to say I have made history.A few miles away in the open Brazilian air, Giles Scott, who narrowly missed out on the one spot for the sailing in London, filled the void left by four-time gold medalist Sir Ben Ainslie to secure his place at the top of the leader board on the waters of Marina da Gloria. All he has to do is fulfill the formalities of the medal race on Tuesday to get that gold medal around his neck.But it was not just about the new faces. Established heroes were showing their desire had not waned a fraction.In track cycling, Jason Kenny also joined British heroes of Saturday. Those days of Atlanta 1996 where Sir Steve Redgraves gold alongside Matthew Pinsent was the only GB one of the Games seemed an eternity ago as Kenny secured Britains 14th here in Rio, beating teammate Callum Skinner in the mens sprint.In doing so, Kenny drew level with Redgrave and Sir Bradley Wiggins as a five-time Olympic champion. Now one behind Sir Chris Hoys record of six, he will aim to match that on Tuesday. He is in the company of knights and surely it will be a case of only a few months before Britains humble, media-shy hero is crowned Sir Kenny.It is strange, Kenny said. People keep saying I have won five but I dont feel any different from the other day when I only had three. Ive still got the keirin to go. Ill relax for that and give myself the best chance I can.And then Murray.Britains pioneering two-time Wimbledon champion and reigning Olympic champion defended his title in an emotional win over Argentinas Juan Martin del Potro.While there will be talk of complacency being kept at bay, these are remarkable achievements -- one of those decade-defining days. The truly great thing for Great Britain? There are still seven days to come. ' ' '
