SPEECH DROWNED OUT BY MUSIC

0:00:050:00:09

Welcome to Battersea Park, here in London,

0:00:270:00:29

where tonight we're going to be celebrating

0:00:290:00:31

a wonderful summer of sport at Team GB's Olympic Golden Ball.

0:00:310:00:34

With Rio, Great Britain enjoyed its most successful ever

0:00:340:00:37

away Olympics and became the first country

0:00:370:00:39

to win more medals four years after it actually hosted the Games.

0:00:390:00:42

Yeah, they surpassed their target.

0:00:420:00:44

They won 67. 27 of those were golds,

0:00:440:00:45

and tonight we'll be meeting some of the athletes

0:00:450:00:48

who helped make history possible.

0:00:480:00:50

And we'll also be finding out who'll be leaving with one of these,

0:00:500:00:54

in special recognition of some of their more outstanding achievements.

0:00:540:00:57

Yes. Much more of that later,

0:00:570:00:58

but first a little reminder of what makes the Olympics so special.

0:00:580:01:02

I want to get to the Olympics

0:01:050:01:06

and then hopefully win an Olympic gold medal.

0:01:060:01:09

And if I wasn't to win a medal,

0:01:090:01:10

it would drive me on to be in the next Olympics

0:01:100:01:13

and win that medal then.

0:01:130:01:14

If you dream at something and you have ambitions,

0:01:140:01:17

and you're willing to work hard,

0:01:170:01:19

you can achieve your dreams.

0:01:190:01:21

Every year that you do, every day you train,

0:01:210:01:24

is for the Olympics and to be at your best there.

0:01:240:01:26

They don't hand out Olympic gold medals for nothing.

0:01:260:01:29

Gold medals! Steven Redgrave, Matthew Pinsent...

0:01:290:01:32

Anyone sees me go anywhere near a boat,

0:01:320:01:34

you've got my permission to shoot me.

0:01:340:01:36

For Steve Redgrave, five in a row.

0:01:360:01:39

What a great Olympian!

0:01:390:01:41

Chris Hoy gets the gold medal!

0:01:420:01:46

The greatest all-round athlete in the world.

0:01:460:01:50

You little beauty!

0:01:500:01:51

Sebastien Coe is the Olympic champion again.

0:01:530:01:56

Great Britain's new heroine is Rebecca Adlington.

0:01:560:01:59

Glover and Stanning defend their Olympic title.

0:01:590:02:02

Bradley Wiggins is the Olympic champion.

0:02:020:02:06

And Gunnell gets the gold!

0:02:060:02:08

Well done, Ben Ainslie. Oh, he's done it!

0:02:080:02:11

The hockey history-makers!

0:02:110:02:13

What we are seeing right now is that dreams do come true.

0:02:130:02:17

You are the double Olympic champion, Kelly Holmes.

0:02:170:02:21

There was a huge amount of pressure coming into this, and I've done it,

0:02:210:02:25

and I can't believe I've done it!

0:02:250:02:26

Well, the band, as you can see, are here and warming up and,

0:02:300:02:33

pretty soon, this whole room will be filled

0:02:330:02:35

with British Olympic athletes.

0:02:350:02:37

Now, a short while ago, Nick's been chatting to the two people

0:02:370:02:40

who are key to making sure the whole night runs smoothly.

0:02:400:02:43

I'm here with the two hosts for tonight.

0:02:470:02:49

Claudia Winkleman - you might know her from TV - and Tom Daley.

0:02:490:02:52

-He's done a little bit of diving.

-Here or there.

0:02:520:02:54

Well, great to see you guys.

0:02:540:02:55

First of all, did you see the Olympics this summer

0:02:550:02:57

and what were your moments?

0:02:570:02:59

Erm, there were so many moments.

0:02:590:03:00

I was just, like, overspilling with pride.

0:03:000:03:02

Bearing in mind that I can't even do a hopscotch without

0:03:020:03:05

having a nap. Everything I watch, my mind just...almost exploded.

0:03:050:03:09

I loved the women's hockey team.

0:03:090:03:11

I could not believe it. I found myself in bed screaming,

0:03:110:03:15

throwing pillows, going, "They're amazing! They're amazing!"

0:03:150:03:18

You know, Maddie and Hollie, all of them,

0:03:180:03:20

-that was my probably stand-out moment.

-It was incredible.

0:03:200:03:22

Tom, obviously that amazing bronze medal alongside Dan Goodfellow.

0:03:220:03:25

Any other highlights?

0:03:250:03:27

I mean, for us, the whole diving team did so incredibly well

0:03:270:03:30

and, you know, Jack and Chris, when they won the Olympic gold,

0:03:300:03:33

you know, it was one of those moments that I will never

0:03:330:03:35

ever forget. So, to be part of that team,

0:03:350:03:37

and just the fact that we're the most successful Team GB team ever

0:03:370:03:41

is just something... You know, it's amazing to be part of that.

0:03:410:03:44

Strictly Come Dancing,

0:03:440:03:45

we see Olympians doing well every single year.

0:03:450:03:48

What makes it so special for them?

0:03:480:03:50

I don't... They do incredibly well.

0:03:500:03:52

They're quite competitive, they're fit,

0:03:520:03:54

they're used to working with a brilliant team, and the best people

0:03:540:03:57

at Strictly are very happy to work as a gang, as a two,

0:03:570:04:01

but everyone else around them, and they just throw themselves in.

0:04:010:04:04

They do brilliantly.

0:04:040:04:05

-Who would you like to see in future editions?

-This one.

-Ha-ha!

0:04:050:04:08

I could tell him now he's going to win.

0:04:080:04:10

Look at that body. Ready for a rumba, ready for a waltz.

0:04:100:04:14

-Any special moves?

-Er, no sp...

0:04:140:04:16

-That will do.

-It's a start.

-That'll do.

-I just won there, right?

0:04:170:04:20

Someone give him the trophy. Done.

0:04:200:04:23

The athletes here tonight we're probably more used to seeing

0:04:270:04:29

in sports kit than black tie and ballgowns,

0:04:290:04:32

but they've all comes dressed for the occasion

0:04:320:04:34

and our fashion vlogger Meg has been on the red carpet to see

0:04:340:04:38

who might have a chance of taking the unofficial style award.

0:04:380:04:41

-We're talking about fashion...

-OK.

-You want us?!

0:04:420:04:45

You're talking to the wrong people, but, yeah...

0:04:450:04:47

A lot of my younger viewers want to know if you have any tips

0:04:470:04:49

about dressing to make yourself feel more confident for a night out.

0:04:490:04:52

Swimming's quite a hard one cos we are quite broad upper body and

0:04:520:04:55

more narrow towards the bottom,

0:04:550:04:56

so you kind of want to balance yourself out a bit, don't you?

0:04:560:04:59

If you feel comfortable wearing what you like then I'd definitely

0:04:590:05:01

go for it cos you're going to look the best if you're smiling.

0:05:010:05:04

We kind of look for things that balance out shoulders

0:05:040:05:06

and give you a bit more waist maybe.

0:05:060:05:07

We were on the internet about an hour ago

0:05:070:05:09

trying to work out how to do it, and I think I've done an all right job.

0:05:090:05:12

That's actually a really good attempt.

0:05:120:05:13

It's one of those life skills you just have, isn't it?

0:05:130:05:15

All the Strictly experience and the hair, the glitter, the make-up,

0:05:150:05:18

I was just like, "Yeah, bring it on!"

0:05:180:05:20

Do you have a signature dance move?

0:05:200:05:22

Well, I like twerking!

0:05:220:05:24

-A little sidestep. Sometimes you've got to...

-Love it.

-..break it back.

0:05:240:05:27

Lily does... She goes for this little half squat position.

0:05:270:05:29

-Oh, God!

-Like this, just like moves a bit.

0:05:290:05:32

This dress is so tight, I can't really...

0:05:320:05:34

I can't really twerk it.

0:05:340:05:36

Before we talk about the athletes, let's recognise the supporters.

0:05:400:05:43

The first award of the night is for Team GB's biggest fan.

0:05:430:05:46

Who went the extra mile when supporting Great Britain this year?

0:05:460:05:50

MUSIC: Get Lucky by Daft Punk and Pharrell Williams

0:05:500:05:53

Thank you so much, ladies and gentlemen.

0:06:000:06:03

Now it's time for the very first Team GB award.

0:06:030:06:05

These awards are to recognise the amazing efforts of everyone

0:06:050:06:10

in Team GB and the team behind them.

0:06:100:06:12

That's why our first award doesn't actually go to an athlete at all.

0:06:120:06:16

This is an award for Team GB's ultimate super-fan,

0:06:160:06:19

to acknowledge all the love and support

0:06:190:06:22

we get from everyone when we're competing.

0:06:220:06:24

Have that feeling and go to the Olympics and support Team GB

0:06:260:06:29

because, you know, they appreciate it.

0:06:290:06:31

We'd like to thank everyone for the support that they've been

0:06:330:06:35

-showing us.

-Keep it up.

-We want to hear all your support,

0:06:350:06:37

-all the way from Rio.

-It's time to step up for Team GB.

0:06:370:06:41

-ALL:

-Good luck, Team GB! Dab!

0:06:460:06:49

Zoe Hainsworth!

0:07:000:07:03

MUSIC: Cheerleader by Omi

0:07:030:07:06

-ZOE:

-It was pretty incredible.

0:07:070:07:09

We were out in Rio ourselves as volunteers

0:07:090:07:11

and to be invited to an event like this is just absolutely unreal.

0:07:110:07:14

Rio was my first trip to kind of follow Team GB

0:07:140:07:16

and just coincidentally we were out there volunteering in the hockey,

0:07:160:07:19

which was an unbelievable event. We ended up ball-girling as well,

0:07:190:07:22

so to be on the pitch for the Olympic final, where the girls won,

0:07:220:07:24

was just...out of this world

0:07:240:07:26

and more than I could ever imagine.

0:07:260:07:28

People keep saying, "How are you? How is retirement?"

0:07:310:07:34

But it's just such a nice feeling to have reflected back on my career

0:07:340:07:38

and now have this time to...

0:07:380:07:39

just relax and enjoy life, and do different things.

0:07:390:07:42

The past two years were, yeah, the toughest years of my career,

0:07:420:07:45

and I knew it was my last Olympics,

0:07:450:07:47

and I think deep down I knew it was the last time I'd step on

0:07:470:07:50

the track and compete in that environment,

0:07:500:07:52

so it was really special.

0:07:520:07:53

The team was incredible and...

0:07:530:07:56

Yeah, really, really emotional.

0:07:560:07:58

What kind of legacy do you think you've left and what do you see

0:07:580:08:00

British athletics in at the moment?

0:08:000:08:02

Generally, I think we're looking really promising

0:08:020:08:04

for the next four years and going into Tokyo.

0:08:040:08:06

And, for me, I just hope that I've helped inspire people to get

0:08:060:08:10

involved in the sport.

0:08:100:08:11

I've had an incredible time and, yeah,

0:08:110:08:14

enjoyed so many amazing championships

0:08:140:08:16

and I hope that there's many more young girls

0:08:160:08:18

who want to be heptathletes,

0:08:180:08:19

come into the sport and hopefully achieve similar kind of things.

0:08:190:08:22

To actually do it and sit there and hold that gold medal in my hand

0:08:220:08:25

and say, "That's it, we're Olympic champions,"

0:08:250:08:27

is something that I can't really get my head around yet, really.

0:08:270:08:31

I don't think I ever will, to be honest.

0:08:310:08:32

We were the first-ever people to win a gold medal,

0:08:320:08:35

and to do that alongside your best mate

0:08:350:08:36

is something pretty special, to be honest.

0:08:360:08:38

I mean, to stand up in that podium, have our family in the crowd,

0:08:380:08:41

hear the national anthem at the Olympic Games,

0:08:410:08:43

that's something that's never happened for Team GB.

0:08:430:08:45

So, you know, we've...

0:08:450:08:47

We've made history and I'm hoping that it will inspire

0:08:470:08:49

the next generations and stuff,

0:08:490:08:51

and what we've done for Team GB and for diving,

0:08:510:08:53

I'm hoping that it will spur people on to

0:08:530:08:56

try and replicate what we've done.

0:08:560:08:57

My year has been an absolutely dream year, to be quite honest,

0:08:570:09:00

as an athlete. I've walked away with a medal in every event I've been to

0:09:000:09:05

through the year - the European Champion going into the Games -

0:09:050:09:09

and then to come away obviously with silver in K2 with

0:09:090:09:11

John Scofield,

0:09:110:09:13

and gold in K1, it was absolutely unbelievable.

0:09:130:09:16

It was my first year internationally, really,

0:09:160:09:18

where I'd tried my K1 out and it worked out pretty well,

0:09:180:09:20

so I'm quite keen to...

0:09:200:09:22

Develop and see how fast I can go

0:09:220:09:24

over the next year and head towards a World Championship title

0:09:240:09:27

because that's the only one that's missing from my cabinet.

0:09:270:09:29

The next award is the Great Britain's Choice Award,

0:09:340:09:37

where the public have voted for their favourite athlete

0:09:370:09:39

or team of the Games.

0:09:390:09:41

There were so many incredible performances in Rio,

0:09:410:09:44

but this award is for the

0:09:440:09:46

individual or team who the public felt inspired

0:09:460:09:49

the whole of the country.

0:09:490:09:51

-COMMENTATOR:

-60 minutes of blood, sweat and ultimately tears...

0:09:510:09:55

one way or the other.

0:09:550:09:56

Oh, it's been saved.

0:09:560:09:57

And this time it's scored.

0:09:580:10:00

It's a goal for the Netherlands - 2-1 in front.

0:10:010:10:04

Crista Cullen brings Great Britain level.

0:10:040:10:07

The gold medal game is going to a penalty shootout.

0:10:070:10:11

Oh, she's hit the post.

0:10:110:10:13

Webb...

0:10:130:10:14

Scores!

0:10:140:10:15

Great Britain have won the Olympic gold medal!

0:10:150:10:19

APPLAUSE

0:10:240:10:26

It's an absolutely phenomenal honour.

0:10:270:10:29

It's been a fantastic evening and to...

0:10:290:10:31

to be given this recognition as a squad.

0:10:310:10:33

We won't get tired of saying it, but there's 31 amazing women

0:10:330:10:36

and staff that have been a part of this,

0:10:360:10:38

so it truly is an honour to be here this evening.

0:10:380:10:41

We just want to say thank you to everybody that's voted

0:10:410:10:43

and we really hope what the summer did

0:10:430:10:46

was put hockey out there on the map.

0:10:460:10:47

Tell us what it was like to be in that moment

0:10:470:10:50

and that shootout at the end.

0:10:500:10:51

Do you know what? It's nearly impossible to describe

0:10:510:10:54

the emotions within that moment

0:10:540:10:55

because we were very much in a bubble, weren't we?

0:10:550:10:57

And it wasn't very dissimilar to what we've been doing at Bisham

0:10:570:11:00

day in, day out, just training

0:11:000:11:01

and, you know, it was just another shootout,

0:11:010:11:03

another time to step up and do our job.

0:11:030:11:05

And then afterwards the chaos kind of hit,

0:11:050:11:07

and the reality hit home of what we'd actually done.

0:11:070:11:09

But I think it's testament to all the hard work we've done back home

0:11:090:11:12

to be confident in those moments, and we were ready.

0:11:120:11:15

Even though the result wasn't what I wanted,

0:11:190:11:21

it does give me immense pride to know that...

0:11:210:11:24

..the British public have just been so accommodating to me,

0:11:260:11:29

and to come back off that plane and be treated like a winner

0:11:290:11:33

has just been such a pleasure to me.

0:11:330:11:34

For that moment, it did seem to bring so many people together.

0:11:340:11:37

As corny as that sounds...

0:11:370:11:40

that does give me a lot of pleasure.

0:11:400:11:42

I was a half second away from being Olympic champion and

0:11:420:11:45

accomplishing my dream.

0:11:450:11:46

HE SOBS

0:11:460:11:49

I'm sorry, I don't want to cry on TV, but...

0:11:490:11:51

I'm so distraught.

0:11:510:11:52

What you saw there, in that interview,

0:11:540:11:56

was a lifetime of training, a lifetime of effort,

0:11:560:11:59

a lifetime of hard graft,

0:11:590:12:01

all put into one moment,

0:12:010:12:02

and for it to be taken away at the last second.

0:12:020:12:06

That's why, you know, it was uncontrollable

0:12:060:12:09

and that's why it was raw emotion.

0:12:090:12:11

It really is a dream come true,

0:12:110:12:12

and it's taken a while but it's starting to sink in a little bit.

0:12:120:12:15

And I have my moments, maybe when I'm driving my car,

0:12:150:12:17

it just suddenly sinks in and I get a bit emotional again.

0:12:170:12:20

But it's been absolutely fantastic since.

0:12:200:12:23

Absolutely amazing. I can't believe it, like...

0:12:230:12:26

Oh, I'm just so happy!

0:12:260:12:28

I just can't believe I've won an Olympic medal.

0:12:280:12:30

Yeah, just...

0:12:300:12:31

..speechless. I just can't believe it!

0:12:320:12:35

Can you put it into words now, what that achievement was like?

0:12:350:12:38

Erm, I think it was just so much emotion going through

0:12:380:12:40

me at one point. It was fantastic.

0:12:400:12:42

There was so much happiness, pride...

0:12:420:12:46

A little bit sad that it was all over.

0:12:460:12:48

Just absolute, kind of, elation.

0:12:490:12:51

What's next for you?

0:12:510:12:53

Getting back on the trampoline is my next step...

0:12:530:12:55

or my next leap or jump.

0:12:550:12:57

But then, after that, the World Championships

0:12:570:12:59

at the end of next year - they're my next large goal.

0:12:590:13:02

British Championships, qualification for that event.

0:13:020:13:05

And it's a stand-alone competition,

0:13:050:13:06

so I'd quite like to do well in that.

0:13:060:13:08

So it's kind of just getting back up to fitness,

0:13:080:13:10

um, learning some new skills, putting them into my routine,

0:13:100:13:12

so just improving and seeing where it can take me, really.

0:13:120:13:15

I just want to find out where my limits and my boundaries are

0:13:150:13:17

and just enjoy the journey for the next four years.

0:13:170:13:19

In Rio, it was more kind of a personal battle,

0:13:190:13:21

overcoming my surgery and injuries,

0:13:210:13:23

and it was really, really tough to get to that start line.

0:13:230:13:27

In some ways, it was more special to do it that second time.

0:13:270:13:30

I think, the next two years, I've got to try some different things,

0:13:300:13:33

experiment with a few kind of different distances of racing.

0:13:330:13:36

And like we said, some longer-distance kind of stuff.

0:13:360:13:39

But, of course, Tokyo is still in the back of my mind

0:13:390:13:41

and, in two years' time, this time in 2018,

0:13:410:13:44

I'm going to have to decide whether it's full steam ahead for Tokyo

0:13:440:13:48

or full steam ahead for the longer kind of racing.

0:13:480:13:51

As we've already said, it was a record-breaking foreign Olympics

0:13:540:13:57

for Great Britain in Brazil,

0:13:570:13:59

but who had the biggest impact on the athletes?

0:13:590:14:01

The next award is for Team GB Coach Of The Year.

0:14:010:14:04

Behind every great athlete, you know,

0:14:040:14:07

they say that you've got a great coach behind you.

0:14:070:14:10

-Yes, they say that.

-They do.

-Good.

0:14:100:14:11

And, you know, they should because it's true.

0:14:110:14:14

This next award goes to the coach whose hard work and dedication

0:14:140:14:18

helped their athletes' dreams come true.

0:14:180:14:21

Celebrate and enjoy, we stick to what we do.

0:14:220:14:25

The gold medal can be won now.

0:14:250:14:27

The story of this team is the personality of the team,

0:14:270:14:29

how they want to work for one another.

0:14:290:14:31

If they keep doing that...they work for one another,

0:14:310:14:34

we'll be in good shape.

0:14:340:14:35

-COMMENTATOR:

-That's the golden goal!

0:14:350:14:37

Great Britain are the Olympic champions and they

0:14:370:14:40

are on top of the world.

0:14:400:14:43

Danny Kerry is on the pitch to celebrate.

0:14:430:14:45

11 years I've kind of being doing this job and I've grown up

0:14:450:14:48

with these people, and I just can't even begin to describe the pride.

0:14:480:14:51

And they should be proud of themselves -

0:14:510:14:53

they have just been immense.

0:14:530:14:55

I'm very proud of the girls, they've been sensational,

0:15:010:15:04

and actually what they've done after the Games and since,

0:15:040:15:07

and how they've been getting out to the hockey community

0:15:070:15:09

and inspiring the next generation, so, yeah, really proud.

0:15:090:15:12

Really, really proud.

0:15:120:15:14

We saw, in Rio, the wonderful team spirit that exists among your squad.

0:15:140:15:17

I mean, where does your squad go from here?

0:15:170:15:19

I mean, do you keep them all? Do some stop? How does it work?

0:15:190:15:22

Yeah, some are definitely stopping there, and they're right to do that.

0:15:220:15:27

They've given an awful lot to the sport

0:15:270:15:29

and they'll go on to pastures new.

0:15:290:15:31

The good news is I've spent the last two months

0:15:310:15:33

looking at the next group

0:15:330:15:34

and I'm quietly optimistic about what's coming through.

0:15:340:15:37

I think we've got quite an exciting four years ahead of us.

0:15:370:15:40

It's absolutely a dream come true.

0:15:430:15:45

Obviously, it's been a lifelong dream to get first and second

0:15:450:15:48

at the Olympic Games, we didn't quite do it in London,

0:15:480:15:50

and I crossed the finish line, I said to Alistair, "We've done it."

0:15:500:15:53

So it's very, very special

0:15:530:15:54

and then I moved on quickly to other races,

0:15:540:15:57

so you didn't really have time to think about it,

0:15:570:15:59

but hopefully tonight,

0:15:590:16:00

it's a great opportunity to look back at the whole season.

0:16:000:16:02

What are the plans for the future?

0:16:020:16:04

We go to the Commonwealths in Gold Coast in 2018

0:16:040:16:07

and then hopefully Olympic champion or medallist in Tokyo

0:16:070:16:11

so I'm very much focused on Olympic distances for the next four years.

0:16:110:16:14

Four years ago, I was kind of sitting at home

0:16:140:16:16

wanting to be an Olympian and now I'm here as part of Team GB

0:16:160:16:19

celebrating our success in Rio,

0:16:190:16:21

not only as part of the team but as a medallist,

0:16:210:16:23

so it takes a bit of getting used to

0:16:230:16:25

but, definitely, it's going to be such an amazing night

0:16:250:16:27

to reunite with all of our team-mates that, well,

0:16:270:16:29

some of whom we haven't seen since the Games.

0:16:290:16:31

It meant so much to us,

0:16:310:16:32

not only because we were kind of forcing ourselves

0:16:320:16:35

onto the top tier of female sprinting but, at the same time,

0:16:350:16:39

we'd worked so unbelievably hard for that.

0:16:390:16:41

I mean, we'd been meeting up since January, been practising, we've been

0:16:410:16:45

altering our schedules to make sure that we had the time to practise

0:16:450:16:48

cos we knew that we had a unique opportunity with the talent

0:16:480:16:50

that we have in the UK right now, and with Rio being, well,

0:16:500:16:53

the Games were in the summer, so we really, really worked hard.

0:16:530:16:56

It was one of those moments where you work for something

0:16:560:16:58

and then you get it, and we were so unbelievably happy.

0:16:580:17:01

What went into winning that?

0:17:010:17:03

A lot of hard work, sweat, blood,

0:17:030:17:05

tears, laughter, happiness,

0:17:050:17:07

but, yeah, all in all,

0:17:070:17:09

it was an emotional medal, that's for sure.

0:17:090:17:11

What were your other highlights at the Games?

0:17:110:17:13

Making new friends from other sports.

0:17:130:17:16

I'm really friendly with Joe, the slalom canoeist.

0:17:160:17:20

We're arranging a little shooting get-together soon.

0:17:200:17:23

I can't see me trying the slalom canoe just yet,

0:17:230:17:26

I'll have to go for the flat stuff first of all but, yeah,

0:17:260:17:30

it's been great there meeting all the other athletes

0:17:300:17:34

from all the other sports and getting to know them.

0:17:340:17:36

Yeah, making new friends definitely is the highlight.

0:17:360:17:39

Gold medals for Laura Trott and Nicola Adams,

0:17:430:17:46

just two of the many fantastic moments from Rio 2016,

0:17:460:17:49

but the next award is the BBC Moment Of The Games.

0:17:490:17:53

You might have seen this one once or twice on telly.

0:17:530:17:55

It's the first time that Great Britain's women have ever

0:17:560:17:59

made it into the final, and they've done so in such style.

0:17:590:18:02

This has been a truly historic day for British women's sport.

0:18:030:18:08

The two teams have produced a dream final.

0:18:100:18:13

The golden opportunity.

0:18:140:18:17

The hockey history-makers!

0:18:170:18:20

That will be one of my moments of Rio.

0:18:200:18:23

Anybody that's been tuned in watching that on a Friday night,

0:18:230:18:27

that is something else.

0:18:270:18:29

APPLAUSE

0:18:330:18:36

We definitely weren't expecting it, it's a massive surprise,

0:18:380:18:41

and I think getting the Public's Choice award was amazing

0:18:410:18:45

because, obviously, the public have voted for it

0:18:450:18:47

so that's super-special and, yeah,

0:18:470:18:49

getting the Moment of the Olympics as well is incredible,

0:18:490:18:51

and Danny rightly deserved to get the Coach Of The Year award

0:18:510:18:54

but, yeah, it's quite unbelievable that hockey got three awards here

0:18:540:18:57

when there were so many fantastic athletes as part of Team GB

0:18:570:19:00

that competed in Rio.

0:19:000:19:02

What kind of impact do you think that gold medal's going to have

0:19:020:19:05

on hockey as a whole and inspiring more youngsters to get involved?

0:19:050:19:08

All of us have seen it first-hand.

0:19:080:19:09

We've all been at hockey clubs and schools all over the country

0:19:090:19:11

and actually I went to one the weekend before last,

0:19:110:19:14

and I got a card off a little girl and it said,

0:19:140:19:16

"I want to go to the Olympics and win a gold medal just like you did.

0:19:160:19:19

"This is the reason I play hockey."

0:19:190:19:21

And we've had so many messages just exactly the same as that,

0:19:210:19:25

and that has been THE best thing since the Olympics,

0:19:250:19:28

the amount of kids, youngsters, girls, boys,

0:19:280:19:31

people of all ages actually that have started playing hockey

0:19:310:19:34

or restarted playing hockey because of what we did at the Olympics

0:19:340:19:36

and that's super-special.

0:19:360:19:38

Waking up the next day with that medal under my pillow,

0:19:420:19:45

I was like, "Oh, my God, it's actually still there!"

0:19:450:19:47

I was pinching myself a little bit, I thought,

0:19:470:19:49

"No, it's real and now I've got to go out and support the other guys

0:19:490:19:51

"and try and get them a gold as well."

0:19:510:19:53

What does the future hold? I mean, you want to be defending that title,

0:19:530:19:56

and I'm sure winning some more European and world honours?

0:19:560:19:58

Yeah, people say to me, "Where do you find the motivation because

0:19:580:20:00

"obviously your dream was to win the Olympic Gold medal and you've

0:20:000:20:03

"done that now, so where's the motivation coming from?"

0:20:030:20:05

For me the motivation comes from nobody has ever done it twice in my

0:20:050:20:08

category, so that's a new aim.

0:20:080:20:10

You've got to reassess, re-evaluate and obviously work towards Tokyo

0:20:100:20:13

and to try and defend that title, which will be...

0:20:130:20:16

It's going to be tight, like it was in Rio,

0:20:160:20:19

so got to really start pushing on and making those marginal gains,

0:20:190:20:22

but it is exciting.

0:20:220:20:23

I don't think words could ever do

0:20:230:20:26

that feeling justice.

0:20:260:20:28

I think it showed in our reaction

0:20:280:20:30

and laughter and how we enjoyed

0:20:300:20:32

that moment, how it felt.

0:20:320:20:34

All you had to do in Rio was finish that race in the 470,

0:20:340:20:37

what was going through your mind at that time?

0:20:370:20:39

It was awful. I absolutely hated it.

0:20:390:20:42

You just think anything that can go wrong will go wrong.

0:20:420:20:44

Just anxious, just want it done.

0:20:440:20:47

Yeah, it wasn't a very nice feeling.

0:20:470:20:48

Obviously the feeling of almost winning was nice but,

0:20:480:20:51

it was just stressful. I was so, so relieved when it was over.

0:20:510:20:53

It's a long four years, a lot of work to go to Tokyo,

0:20:530:20:56

what are the plans from now?

0:20:560:20:58

Yeah, it is.

0:20:580:21:00

Saskia is retiring, which leaves me alone, which is really sad.

0:21:000:21:04

We've had an amazing six years sailing together.

0:21:040:21:07

We've had an amazing journey together so I'm trying new

0:21:070:21:10

things, new boats and, yes, on a crew search, to find my next crew.

0:21:100:21:15

Max Whitlock is now a double Olympic champion.

0:21:150:21:20

You know, I haven't even sat in my living room and watched the whole

0:21:200:21:24

thing back yet. I really need to make time to do that,

0:21:240:21:27

but it still feels so surreal.

0:21:270:21:29

It feels crazy that it's all finished, all done and

0:21:290:21:32

everyone is looking forward to the next thing that's coming round.

0:21:320:21:34

It's an amazing feeling knowing what we've done.

0:21:340:21:36

How would you describe the stature that we have now in the world game?

0:21:360:21:40

By an absolute mile, it's the best place we've ever been in.

0:21:400:21:43

We can go forward actually being known as one of the world's

0:21:430:21:46

best teams, and we've proved that so many times now

0:21:460:21:48

so we can go forward with so much confidence.

0:21:480:21:51

Look at we've done, look at the experience we've brought up

0:21:510:21:54

and move forward with that.

0:21:540:21:56

There's so much more we can do, hopefully.

0:21:560:21:59

I always, as you know, success breeds success.

0:21:590:22:02

So hopefully what we've done can make the younger gymnasts

0:22:020:22:05

believe what is really possible.

0:22:050:22:07

We've already seen so much success celebrated tonight but the

0:22:110:22:14

final award is a particularly special one.

0:22:140:22:16

It's the Olympians' Olympian so who from Team GB excelled more

0:22:160:22:20

than the rest?

0:22:200:22:21

This is our final award of the night, the Olympians' Olympian,

0:22:210:22:24

and the only people to vote in this award were

0:22:240:22:27

the competitors at the Rio Games, so this is the athletes' athlete.

0:22:270:22:33

-Who did you vote for, Tom?

-Well, that would be telling, wouldn't it?

0:22:330:22:36

OK, just so you know, I'd have voted for you too.

0:22:360:22:38

If I could come out with anything, any medal of any kind here,

0:22:400:22:42

it would probably be my greatest achievement.

0:22:420:22:45

This is a sensational performance!

0:22:450:22:47

Great Britain's Thornley and Grainger getting Olympic

0:22:470:22:51

silver medal.

0:22:510:22:54

This performance stands testament to the power of self-belief and

0:22:540:22:57

sheer hard work.

0:22:570:22:59

To be standing here finally in the Rio sunshine with a big medal round

0:22:590:23:02

-our necks has made it all worthwhile.

-Tokyo?

0:23:020:23:04

Mum and Dad, I promise, I'll never put you through that again.

0:23:040:23:08

APPLAUSE

0:23:080:23:11

Of all the awards to win,

0:23:170:23:19

what an incredible award, when it's voted by your own peers.

0:23:190:23:22

That just makes it so, so special, I can't say enough.

0:23:220:23:25

This team has been my life for 20 years,

0:23:250:23:27

being part of the British Olympic team, so to be voted for

0:23:270:23:30

by the team to be...this award is very special.

0:23:300:23:33

I think the Rio medal for me was the hardest one of my five to win.

0:23:330:23:37

We were both determined to come away with a good result and

0:23:370:23:40

our coaches believed in us and our team believed in us.

0:23:400:23:42

I think once we believed in each other, then we were in the

0:23:420:23:45

right place for it.

0:23:450:23:46

What I'm not hearing is you saying

0:23:460:23:48

a Sir Steve Redgrave, "shoot me if I get back in that boat."

0:23:480:23:51

I genuinely feel so lucky to have done this for 20 years.

0:23:510:23:53

I did five Olympic Games, that's more than most people get

0:23:530:23:56

a chance to do - and successfully as well - so I do feel within myself

0:23:560:23:59

I know it's time for other people to chase that dream now.

0:23:590:24:03

I'm very, very content with my career.

0:24:030:24:05

So the women's hockey team, the big winners on the night with

0:24:100:24:14

three awards underlining what a huge achievement that gold medal was.

0:24:140:24:17

Before we go, let's head back down to Meg

0:24:170:24:19

to find out who, in her eyes, stole the show on the red carpet.

0:24:190:24:22

Everyone just looked absolutely amazing and it's so tough

0:24:270:24:30

to pick a favourite, but for women I have to say Sam Murray.

0:24:300:24:32

Her dress was just absolutely knockout and she looked like

0:24:320:24:35

an absolute ten out of ten.

0:24:350:24:36

Her make-up was flawless as well

0:24:360:24:38

and she matched her lipstick to her dress. She just looked beautiful.

0:24:380:24:41

For guys, it has to be Lutalo Muhammad because he looks

0:24:410:24:43

so dapper and he's so charming and lovely as well.

0:24:430:24:46

So those are my two top style picks of the night.

0:24:460:24:49

There may still be a few years to go to till the Tokyo Games

0:24:530:24:55

in 2020, but there's only just over 12 months until the next

0:24:550:24:58

Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea.

0:24:580:25:01

Hopefully plenty more to celebrate then.
