Women's Cycling Individual Time Trial: Kristin Armstrong Give U.S. Another Gold Medal

Kristin Armstrong gave the United States its 10th gold medal of the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, winning the women's cycling individual time trial with a time of 37:34.82 on Wednesday. She took first place by nearly six seconds over silver medalist Judith Arndt of Germany and 23 seconds over bronze medalist Olga Zabelinskaya of Russia.

Armstrong more than made up for a 35th place finish in the road race Sunday. She turned in the fasted third lap Wednesday, coming in a full eight seconds faster than Arndt, who had the second fastest final 8.6 kilometers.

American Amber Neben also competed in the race, coming in seventh place at 1:10.35 back from Armstrong. The 38-year-old Armstrong also won the time trial at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing.
