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.

That's right — the sun has set on Zacmone's moment in the sun because engaged British duo Jason Kenny and Laura Trott fucking dominated their event finals last night.

YUP, THAT'S FIVE MEDALS BETWEEN THE TWO OF THEM, JUST FROM THIS YEAR.

They're both track cyclists, and last night, Trott won gold in women's omnium and Kenny got a gold for men's keirin, cementing their status as legends.

Here they are freaking out when they realized that they're officially the Beyoncé and Jay Z of the goddamn Olympics. Kenny had already won golds for team and individual sprint races, and Trott won her team pursuit competition.

To put their dominance in perspective, if these two were a country, they would rank 13th on the list of countries with the most golds — higher than host country Brazil.

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.

Their cumulative Olympic gold medal count is 10: Trott also won two at the 2012 Olympics, and Kenny picked up two in London and one in Beijing in 2008. And don't worry, they're planning on breeding lots of future Olympians, too.

This is all a very nice latest chapter for the couple who was sucking face RIGHT BEHIND DAVID BECKHAM during a beach volleyball match at the 2012 Olympics.

They're getting married in September, so yeah, their wedding will probably have a cameo from Prince William or some shit.
