2008 Olympic Games - Women's Time Trial Results

Kristin Armstrong wins Olympic gold.

Armstrong crossed the mid-race time check in second place, just 3 seconds behind Pooley.  But by the time Armstrong crossed the line, she had managed to make up the few ticks necessary to claim the gold, and then some, stopping the clock at 34:51.72.  With 6 competitors in the 25-rider field yet to finish, Armstrong waited until one by one each rider finished, failing to eclipse the standard Armstrong had set.
