Jessica Ennis, Mo Farah and Greg Rutherford set the country alight on "Super Saturday" after each winning gold medals in what is surely one of the most historic nights in British sporting history.
Ennis set the ball in motion after storming to victory in the heptathlon, claiming victory in the last event, the 800m.
Britain's golden hour of athletics continued when long jumper Rutherford surprised the entire stadium with his fantastic winning jump of 8.31m.
Then it was Mo Farah who sent the country into ecstasy, winning gold in the 10,000m - the first time a British man has ever won at that distance in Olympic history.
The Olympic stadium erupted into noise, screams, shouts and tears as a "Magic Mo" brutally took to the task of grinding down his opposition.
The Olympics stadium was buzzing so much that most spectators hardly noticed the women's 100m final.
The results pushes Team GB into third place in the medals table, behind China and the USA.
For Ennis, her victory was never really in doubt throughout the two-day event after smashing the hurdles record on day one.
Almost 80,000 fans roared the 26-year-old to the finishing line in the 800m, which sealed a fantastic Olympics for the Sheffield athlete.
Earlier in the day, tens of thousands of British fans cheered on Ennis in the long jump and javelin (traditionally her weaker events) and helped her all but secure a win.
In what were widely expected to be two of the toughest rounds of the contest for Ennis, she put in a 6.48m long jump, making her just one of two athletes to earn more than 1,000 points in the sandpit.
She then threw a personal best of 47.49m in the javelin as her success continued.
Ennis, the face of the Games, showed her gratitude to the 80,000 fans in the Olympic Stadium, waving as she received a standing ovation from the crowd as she left.
Meanwhile Farah, 29, running in one of the marquee events in track and field, became the first British man to win at the distance in Olympic history.
Earlier on Saturday, Ethiopia's two-time Olympic 10,000m champion Haile Gebrselassie predicted that the event would be a race between Farah and his fellow countrymen, with Kenenisa Bekele, the world and Olympic record holder in the 5,000m and 10,000m, the main threat to the Brit.
In a stunning display of tenacity, talent and speed he beat Kenenisa Bekele, the Ethiopian 5,000m and 10,000m World and Olympic record holder, to win the Olympic 10,000m title.
His wife Tania, who is pregnant with twins, and daughter Rihanna came on to congratulate him on the track. Farah looked stunned but delighted as the crowd roared.
The packed stadium was already buzzing from Jessica Ennis's gold in the heptathlon and a surprise victory from Greg Rutherford in the long jump at the Olympic Stadium.
