Laura Trott and Jason Kenny are the new king and queen of the Olympics.

Move over Simone Biles and Zac Efron, there’s a new Olympic power couple in town.

I know we, like, just crowned Simone Biles and Zac Efron the best couple in Rio, but this is the Olympics, people, and in the Olympics, you’re only on top for so long.

Not only that, but their wins Tuesday night made them Great Britain’s most successful female and male Olympians in terms of medals won. NBD.
