Crossword Genius

Element of victory? (4)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

gold

I believe this is a double definition.

'element' is the first definition.
(I know that gold is a precious metal)

'victory?' is the second definition.
(gold can mean victory in sporting events)

'of' acts as a link.

(Other definitions for gold that I've seen before include "Thin sheet of precious metal" , "Colour of archery target's centre" , "Valuable metal" , "Au - metal" , "Element (Au)" .)

I've seen this clue in The Mirror.
