Hello and welcome back to Melbourne for round two of Nitro Athletics,

:00:47.:00:52.

the bold new team event headlined by Usain Bolt and designed to bring a

:00:53.:00:56.

whole new audience to the sport, which last week saw the start of

:00:57.:01:00.

something a bit different. I knew Australia would come out and support

:01:01.:01:02.

and I'm happy everybody is here and I'm excited to get started. Wow, the

:01:03.:01:08.

best start possible in the Nitro series. She has taken off. What a

:01:09.:01:21.

team and what a run. Australia upstaged the Bald All-Stars.

:01:22.:01:35.

That is what Nitro is all about. Usain Bolt is of! It was awesome,

:01:36.:01:48.

the crowd was great. Thank you, Australia. Usain Bolt's All-Stars

:01:49.:01:55.

recovered from a slow start to finish ahead of Australia. The young

:01:56.:02:00.

English team did not fare so welcome of suffering an injury to Bianca

:02:01.:02:05.

Williams. Second place in the mixed death and medley relay proved to be

:02:06.:02:09.

their best result but with points on offer in another 12 event there was

:02:10.:02:12.

plenty to play for. A reminder of how it works. Six teams of 12 female

:02:13.:02:18.

and 12 male athletes go head-to-head over three days of competition.

:02:19.:02:20.

Traditional disciplines fit alongside more innovative events.

:02:21.:02:28.

Points are awarded according to position with the emphasis on team

:02:29.:02:31.

rather than individual performances. Bonus points are available in some

:02:32.:02:37.

field events and each team can use a power play to double their points in

:02:38.:02:41.

one nominated event. Places for the first two rounds go on to determine

:02:42.:02:45.

seedings and lame tours in the grand final. Let us know what you thought

:02:46.:02:52.

of it so far -- lane draws. But let's get over to the Australian

:02:53.:02:55.

because to describe the action and Rob Clancy to draw the Li talk you

:02:56.:02:58.

through There are individual men's and

:02:59.:03:18.

women's 100 metres races, 110 hurdles for the men, dew seeded para

:03:19.:03:27.

events and finally a mixed 4x100 relay, once again involving the

:03:28.:03:36.

indomitable Usain Bolt. This is the mixed 4x400 metres relay and

:03:37.:03:40.

Australia is using its power play. I am here with 400-metre legend

:03:41.:03:46.

Christine Ohuruogu, and you're nervous. For yourself or the team?

:03:47.:03:51.

It's weird because we have had a great build-up but we all agreed,

:03:52.:03:55.

It's weird because we have had a the 400 metre lot that there is

:03:56.:03:57.

nothing fun about it! No matter what the event, this event can make grown

:03:58.:04:04.

adults cry! I am a bit nervous but it's fun. You know the pain is

:04:05.:04:09.

coming! And what about Nitro as a whole, are you loving the team

:04:10.:04:13.

environment? It's fantastic, we had a great time, we have been dancing

:04:14.:04:18.

along and it is great to invite people into our world. People don't

:04:19.:04:21.

get the chance to see this side of us so it's a great idea. What more

:04:22.:04:26.

could you ask for? Time for you to get your game face on! Here we go.

:04:27.:04:34.

The second night of Nitro is underway and Luke Stevens goes out

:04:35.:04:39.

hard. This be strange to watch because three men and three women so

:04:40.:04:44.

expect the bolt All-Stars to be at the back because Marinakou is a

:04:45.:04:57.

long-distance runner. Cochrane of New Zealand is third supplement our

:04:58.:05:03.

one, two, three you would expect Stevens do have a lead. I think it

:05:04.:05:08.

helps Australia being drawn on the outside lane. He was able to use his

:05:09.:05:12.

speed to get the fund. But Oseto is running a great leg. -- to the

:05:13.:05:18.

front. A great performance and a bit of a surprise. Ishizuka gets it now

:05:19.:05:25.

and it is Rubie for Australia. Ohuruogu goes now. It is Japan,

:05:26.:05:34.

Australia, the All-Stars are a long way back but they come home with a

:05:35.:05:39.

strong runner. In the back straight, no surprise that New Zealand go

:05:40.:05:44.

past. This is Tom Moulai who is just 18 and he is leading by six or seven

:05:45.:05:52.

metres from Anneliese Rubie who was in the Olympics in the 4x400 final

:05:53.:05:56.

for Australia. She is a fine runner and she is getting a gap on Ishizuka

:05:57.:06:06.

in third place. It will be a strange feeling for Rubie having a boy

:06:07.:06:10.

flying past but she has held her form really well and she is passing

:06:11.:06:15.

it over to Alex Hartmann at speed. The change was put a stop change.

:06:16.:06:22.

Ohuruogu gives the bat over. Katherine Camp on the back straight,

:06:23.:06:30.

she was 25 on Monday. Alex Hartmann has gone straight past her on the

:06:31.:06:38.

back straight. Horii of Japan is in third place, a very good 400 metres

:06:39.:06:41.

man and the All-Stars are still long way back but making up some ground.

:06:42.:06:46.

Morgan Mitchell will go last for Australia but they have a very good

:06:47.:06:53.

lead. Horii are trying to run down apartment but Japan has a female

:06:54.:06:57.

athlete to go last, so does New Zealand.

:06:58.:07:00.

They get to Morgan Mitchell and Morgan is away. Clement is about to

:07:01.:07:08.

get it for the All-Stars but surely they are too far back. Australia

:07:09.:07:13.

with a power play stemming them in the face and they are leading in the

:07:14.:07:19.

back straight. Australia had definitely got the All-Stars under

:07:20.:07:22.

control because Clement is only just having the bat on right now. Morgan

:07:23.:07:29.

looks clear. The problem is the English team, Theo Campbell is

:07:30.:07:33.

finishing strongly. Morgan is going to have a hold her form. Theo

:07:34.:07:39.

Campbell is adopting the flight. She is lifting, they are cheering her

:07:40.:07:49.

home. Keep going, Campbell is going to get her! England have got up and

:07:50.:07:55.

come from nowhere. Over the line they go. Japan were third and China

:07:56.:08:02.

were forth. So much fun. New Zealand fifth and then the All-Stars. They

:08:03.:08:07.

are not good at the medley relay but don't worry. How good was that? What

:08:08.:08:11.

an amazing finish is, did you think you could get her? I knew it was a

:08:12.:08:19.

done deal, the team did a good job! We planned it and we knew it was

:08:20.:08:23.

going to happen that way! We were a bit behind, but a good team effort.

:08:24.:08:32.

And did you even lower case? I did! It is all fun! -- blow her a kiss. A

:08:33.:08:42.

great start, well done. England takes the opening victory with a

:08:43.:08:46.

thrilling finish in the mixed 4x400 relay but Australia take the lead in

:08:47.:08:50.

the points standings after using their power play. Next up is the

:08:51.:08:55.

60-metre sprint, men first and then women. The 60-metre sprint, Michael

:08:56.:09:02.

Frater is one of the big stars and he will go for the bolt All-Stars --

:09:03.:09:12.

bowled All-Stars. Fighter got a good start, Gao Ze is right up there and

:09:13.:09:23.

a great dip! Confidence Lawson, this was close, England have come with a

:09:24.:09:29.

rush. China and Jamaica and Japan. It changed in the last ten metres

:09:30.:09:36.

and this is desperately close. Gashi had a better forward lean -- Gao Ze.

:09:37.:09:43.

The English have started well. They have but Gao Ze has got it for

:09:44.:09:51.

China. This is the women 60 metres. Branding is properly favourite. --

:09:52.:10:05.

Prandini. Erin McBride is up para athlete. She has to run tonight

:10:06.:10:08.

because England have run out of runners will stop Prandini made a

:10:09.:10:15.

good start. She is clearly away. It is the All-Stars over China, Japan,

:10:16.:10:22.

New Zealand, Australia and Erin McBride getting 40 points by going

:10:23.:10:28.

to the line. Jenna Prandini's class carried her through. It is

:10:29.:10:32.

sensational having you supporting the event, what does it mean to you

:10:33.:10:38.

and how can it improve? It is a really important staging post for

:10:39.:10:42.

athletics, we have got to challenge ourselves. We have not done enough

:10:43.:10:45.

in past years to attract young people into the sport and we have

:10:46.:10:50.

begun to pay a high price for that. What I love about this is that it is

:10:51.:10:55.

fun and intimate, the athletes are interacting with the crowd,

:10:56.:10:58.

particularly the young people. And we have challenged ourselves to do

:10:59.:11:01.

something different. I challenged everybody and I'm so pleased that

:11:02.:11:04.

Australia took it up and you do these things really well and thank

:11:05.:11:09.

you. Next up it is the women's pole vault. This is Aoshima from the

:11:10.:11:16.

national champion at four metres and a big clearance. They have three set

:11:17.:11:26.

heights, 3.70, 3.80, and four metres. That was four metres which

:11:27.:11:31.

is the third height in the order. This is Nina Kennedy for the

:11:32.:11:37.

All-Stars. Just 19 years of age and Usain is on the sidelines watching

:11:38.:11:42.

and she went clear at four metres. Those were the two athlete to go

:11:43.:11:45.

clear at four metres and then they can pick their own height. This is

:11:46.:11:53.

Aoshima, the 26-year-old national champion and she had selected 4.10

:11:54.:12:00.

metres. Here she goes in a final attempt. Up, up and over! The rising

:12:01.:12:12.

sun rises up and goes clear! That a great jump and it puts Nina Kennedy

:12:13.:12:16.

under the pump, pushing her back into second place as things stand.

:12:17.:12:24.

Nina Kennedy, former Acrobat, former world junior record holder, just 19

:12:25.:12:29.

years of age. This is to tie for first place. She needs to go clear.

:12:30.:12:34.

Training partner of Liz Parnov who is still to come. Right now she is

:12:35.:12:42.

the energy Anna Kennedy is clear! That is a big clearance. Should she

:12:43.:12:52.

have gone for 4.20 metres? I reckoned she had it in her and she

:12:53.:12:59.

had been too conservative. The big man Usain Bolt said to be

:13:00.:13:02.

conservative and I don't think that is her style. Come on, you say, you

:13:03.:13:07.

need to fill your charges with joy and excitement! Look at that

:13:08.:13:12.

celebration. That is a great jump. Nina Kennedy goes clear at 4.10

:13:13.:13:19.

metres. She shouldn't have listened to Usain! Next up is Abigail Roberts

:13:20.:13:25.

from England, this is at four metres having cleared 3.85 but she will

:13:26.:13:32.

have to settle with that, the Sheffield competitor.

:13:33.:13:39.

Australia can share the points here if Liz Parnov can go clear at 4.10

:13:40.:13:44.

metres. In she comes... Up she goes but no!

:13:45.:14:01.

Wow, that is problematic for the Australian team but good news for

:14:02.:14:06.

the bold All-Stars who share the points with Japan. Are you with the

:14:07.:14:18.

big man? I am with Usain Bolt and Nina Kennedy. What have you got to

:14:19.:14:22.

say? I'm very proud, she came through. I was never worried! Can

:14:23.:14:27.

you confirm you told her to take the conservative route and jump four

:14:28.:14:33.

metres ten? We have to be smart! It is all about winning, as long as we

:14:34.:14:39.

get the win. And we've got it. Are you happy you get the captain happy?

:14:40.:14:41.

I am! Good points for the All-Stars. The bolt All-Stars and Japan are

:14:42.:14:53.

joint winners of the women's pole vault. That result is enough to lift

:14:54.:15:01.

Japan into third overall, ten points behind China. Australia still lead

:15:02.:15:02.

the field. A third of the way through this

:15:03.:15:13.

event, a three minute challenge for the men and then the women. Bolt

:15:14.:15:26.

All-Stars lead. This looks to be pretty quick to me. This does look

:15:27.:15:37.

like a genuine 800 metres race. Ramsden is a 6-foot four athlete, he

:15:38.:15:43.

has got that long, leggy stride. He just knows the others have really

:15:44.:15:47.

good leg speeds. He has stretched them out. Rimmer will not be liking

:15:48.:15:54.

this pace. He will suffer a little bit of the backend. Are you happy

:15:55.:16:02.

with where Luke is? Good work, Luke! I think he

:16:03.:16:12.

stretched early. I reckon Ramsden is trying to run him off his feet so he

:16:13.:16:17.

cannot kick. Buddy can't do that forever. Ramsden holds Matthews for

:16:18.:16:29.

the moment. You can see the English team jeering -- cheering Rimmer on.

:16:30.:16:38.

He has got to go. He goes. He moves alongside Ramsden. This has been

:16:39.:16:49.

great running. This is tough, they get there and Ramsden just holds off

:16:50.:16:50.

Matthews. Because of the 25-metre gap with

:16:51.:17:10.

macro --s that's not because of the 25-metre gaps, the women come up.

:17:11.:17:17.

She is a terrific relay runner. She made the African Championships last

:17:18.:17:23.

year. You've got 200 metres! Let's go!

:17:24.:17:33.

Let's go! Linden stretches it to a few metres. You feel she might be

:17:34.:17:39.

the one. One last throw on the dice. We know England can come with a run.

:17:40.:17:49.

Ten seconds, nine, eight... Australia are going to do it again.

:17:50.:18:07.

Linden Hall. Just a great race. It is just brilliant. The host nation

:18:08.:18:14.

takes out a thrilling three-minute distance challenge ahead of England

:18:15.:18:26.

and Bolt All-Stars. Up next is the mixed two by 300 m relay.

:18:27.:18:33.

Australia had a great result here on the opening night. Mitchell and

:18:34.:18:45.

Stephen Sabac up again. -- Stevens are up again.

:18:46.:18:55.

Has Stevens got one more big run in him? Taniguchi is 18 years old, the

:18:56.:19:12.

Japanese runner. Stevens has to hang on. Williams quickly goes up and

:19:13.:19:17.

take skill. Stevens accelerates. He is covering more ground. The Bolt

:19:18.:19:25.

All-Stars added again. Stephen gives it to Morgan Mitchell. Margreitter

:19:26.:19:31.

Dolly and Morgan Mitchell stretch away. -- .ca. She has gone hard and

:19:32.:19:41.

early. Mitchell will be strong in the last 50. She ran in the relay

:19:42.:19:53.

but was a reserve in Rio. England and Australia. Exactly as it was in

:19:54.:19:57.

the first race tonight. Morgan Mitchell is going to win again! What

:19:58.:20:06.

a performer. New Zealand finished third, then Japan.

:20:07.:20:12.

A long gap to the Bolt All-Stars. What a fantastic finish. You just

:20:13.:20:15.

set redemption. It must feel pretty good? You have no idea. I was pretty

:20:16.:20:24.

gutted earlier. I wanted to come home hard. One more for a stroller,

:20:25.:20:30.

let's keep going. Another Australian win in the two by three and a metre

:20:31.:20:35.

relay. Tonight you're a little bit more

:20:36.:20:39.

subdued, man. The first night you were out and about. What are you

:20:40.:20:46.

arguing about? I was over there with my pole vaulter. You look serious! I

:20:47.:20:57.

can't be happy when I'm losing! You have to believe in your team. I know

:20:58.:21:04.

you don't. We are doing the maths. It's not really adding up. We are

:21:05.:21:09.

taking our time. You can't talk too much if you're not sure you are

:21:10.:21:13.

going to win. Now the women's long jump.

:21:14.:21:24.

This is the 24-year-old from China. Third in the national championships.

:21:25.:21:28.

A very good jumper. Around the 6.30 mark. Yes, 6.30 one. -- 6.3 one.

:21:29.:21:42.

Quite tricky conditions. Here is my favourite, Kelsey Berryman. Close to

:21:43.:21:51.

her personal best. 5.99 in their opening job. She has more speed on

:21:52.:21:54.

the runway than a lot of her competitors. This is big. That looks

:21:55.:22:02.

close to the 6.2 three. 6.29, a lifetime best.

:22:03.:22:09.

The result keeps Australia in the lead from China are at the head of a

:22:10.:22:14.

title chasing pack. Coming up next, the elimination

:22:15.:22:22.

mile. A fast and frenetic four laps of the track were the pressure is on

:22:23.:22:26.

every step of the way. Keep your eye on the back of the pack as well as

:22:27.:22:32.

the front. We lose a runner every lap. If you are in last place at the

:22:33.:22:40.

end of a lap, your race is over. Athletes will be eliminated after

:22:41.:22:46.

laps one, two and three. And then the focus shifts to the final lap.

:22:47.:22:52.

The remaining three athlete head to head, with the first across the line

:22:53.:22:54.

taking 100 points. So the elimination mile. If you're

:22:55.:23:06.

watching on Saturday night, you will know all about it. One unlucky

:23:07.:23:11.

runner, the one at the back, drops out after the first lap, the same

:23:12.:23:15.

for the second and third, until we get down to three. The top three

:23:16.:23:32.

battle it out for 100 points. Or Keita is an 800-metre runner from

:23:33.:23:33.

Japan. -- Akita. Heidi See will want to make sure she

:23:34.:23:47.

is in the front. She has not got raped -- race fitness in her legs.

:23:48.:23:51.

You just don't want to be at the back. She is in a great position.

:23:52.:23:56.

She has fast athletes behind her. We can see the battle. The Bolt

:23:57.:24:04.

All-Stars, do they drop out? I think they will. No, they won't! I think

:24:05.:24:17.

Akita is the one to go. I think she actually got past Akita. There you

:24:18.:24:29.

go. They say Japan is eliminated on the scoreboard. The thing is, she

:24:30.:24:34.

was never going to get back onto that pathway. She made a fatal

:24:35.:24:39.

error. We haven't seen anything like this before. They she is on the

:24:40.:24:44.

bottom left-hand corner. She looks very upset. Incredible. She kept

:24:45.:24:53.

running. With her strength, she probably would have got stronger.

:24:54.:25:07.

These four will survive this lap. Are you pretty hot -- happy with

:25:08.:25:11.

Heidi Sofer? Yes. She didn't have to worry too much on that lap. She

:25:12.:25:16.

doesn't want to lose touch at the front it is at the end of the day it

:25:17.:25:19.

is the first person who crosses the line at the end. She is doing really

:25:20.:25:25.

well. She is in your group. How is she training? I think she is the

:25:26.:25:31.

best person in this event tonight. She is fit, strong and she has

:25:32.:25:38.

natural speed. Steve, let's go to Nathan. She has just rejoined the

:25:39.:25:47.

race after missing that lap. That's not legal, is it? No. She should

:25:48.:25:53.

have waited for the decision of the judges. She thought it was her who

:25:54.:25:58.

had been eliminated but it was Japan. We have an official at the

:25:59.:26:03.

100 metres to take you off the track if you are unsure. Nathan, they have

:26:04.:26:11.

to get Bosque off the track because it will be chaos if they don't. She

:26:12.:26:17.

has to go. This will completely change everything here. She

:26:18.:26:24.

shouldn't be there. Thomas should survive. What should happen here,

:26:25.:26:34.

Thomas, Heidi See should be left to go. Heidi See leads. Busk has been

:26:35.:26:46.

eliminated. A great story for a Heidi See. For me, the Bolt

:26:47.:26:56.

All-Stars will only get 50 points. It is hard to get your head around

:26:57.:27:02.

it! It says that Heidi See is in great shape, which is fantastic for

:27:03.:27:12.

Australian athletics. This is great. Look how beautiful she looks. She is

:27:13.:27:16.

getting stronger as the laps come on. She will get going in the final

:27:17.:27:20.

straight. This has been a great performance. Yes, Heidi! Let's go!

:27:21.:27:33.

All the way. Heidi See coming through. She wins easily. Second

:27:34.:27:45.

placing will be Thomas of Great Britain. And third will be the

:27:46.:27:49.

Zealander. The microphone has been dropped by

:27:50.:28:03.

the big guy. I looked at the screen and I was

:28:04.:28:12.

like, or, God! Morgan Mitchell starring. She has been outstanding.

:28:13.:28:16.

Now getting into the swing of it, the fun of it, as we come to the 100

:28:17.:28:25.

metres from men and women. Jack Hale, the 18-year-old Australian,

:28:26.:28:31.

Jarrion Lawson, an outstanding American.

:28:32.:28:38.

J Cale got away pretty well. Lawson is slowest out. -- Jake Hale. Miller

:28:39.:28:49.

is going to get through! J Cale back in sixth. The Bolt All-Stars really

:28:50.:28:56.

struggling. Joseph Millar. What an effort. He looked great in the 150

:28:57.:29:02.

the other night. Look I relaxed he is. Riley Day closest to us. Look at

:29:03.:29:15.

this great crowd. Everybody waiting. Riley Day got a pretty good start.

:29:16.:29:21.

Morrison away. Day is having a good run. Morrison goes to the front. It

:29:22.:29:28.

is Morrison! Baguette 's second! At 16 years of age. -- day gets second.

:29:29.:29:36.

A great run by Morrison. Riley Day was awesome.

:29:37.:29:42.

Victories for New Zealand and the Bolt All-Stars in the 100 metres

:29:43.:29:47.

sprints. The Kiwi 's move into second place overall, just 40 points

:29:48.:29:50.

behind Australia, with England further back in third.

:29:51.:29:57.

This is the 110 hurdles, the power play for Japan and it is a cracking

:29:58.:30:04.

race. Gabriel Odujobi of England in the middle. This is such a line-up.

:30:05.:30:09.

Power play for Japan. Not the best out from Wilson.

:30:10.:30:24.

Merlino is a fair run. Wilson is struggling, Merlino getting back,

:30:25.:30:30.

Xie gets through from Odujobi and maybe Wilson and Henry. No huge

:30:31.:30:40.

surprise that Xie Wenjun has come through. What a great result for the

:30:41.:30:48.

bold All-Stars, Justin Merlino faded away as well -- bolt All-Stars.

:30:49.:30:54.

-- you can see the handicaps. O'Neill as the big start. Look how

:30:55.:31:15.

far back terrace and Wallace are, surely they cannot get to Will

:31:16.:31:21.

O'Neill. Reardon is taking some ground of him. O'Neill is hanging

:31:22.:31:33.

on. He beats Reardon and Ikeda. Perris and Wallace could not get

:31:34.:31:36.

there. Will O'Neill has done the double.

:31:37.:31:44.

The staggered distance is not so far, just out to 12 metres.

:31:45.:31:53.

Pardy from the outside and Isaac is next to her. McBride trying to come

:31:54.:32:02.

back on Ayanbeku. This is going to be close. Pardy has had a good first

:32:03.:32:10.

hundred. Grimaldi coming home hard and so is McBride. McBride and

:32:11.:32:16.

Grimaldi are coming at Herbert is hanging on. Half a metre in front

:32:17.:32:24.

and she didn't did but I think so. McBride did dip and it is close.

:32:25.:32:32.

Grimaldi cannot quite get there. McBride dips. And England have got

:32:33.:32:43.

it! McBride has been able to get her torso over the line in front of Ella

:32:44.:32:51.

Pardy. The javelin and this is Hamish Peacock, his second throw in

:32:52.:32:56.

the competition and he is leading with 76.30 metres from its first

:32:57.:33:02.

throw. He has let this one rip and a puff of dust and it was dead

:33:03.:33:09.

straight and that is 82.12 metres. That is a serious throw. They go for

:33:10.:33:17.

bonus point in the final round with accuracy but 82.12 is finals in the

:33:18.:33:22.

Olympics stuff. In the final round, that is the bonus distance which

:33:23.:33:25.

start at about 60 metres and it goes out in a V neck

:33:26.:33:29.

. That is in! It's in! That is the distance for Joseph Dunderdale. He

:33:30.:33:47.

got the 15 bonus points. Look at that, it is right in the narrowest

:33:48.:33:53.

spot. Very impressive. Liu from China, 75.02 so far. He was third in

:33:54.:34:01.

the national championships and he can launch it close to 70 metres.

:34:02.:34:06.

The crowd are hoping to see a target. I could scream and it is

:34:07.:34:13.

close and it's in! It is long and accurate! 76.55, that it is best

:34:14.:34:29.

throw so far and 15 bonus points. That is fantastic stuff. Another

:34:30.:34:33.

Australian victory with Hamish Peacock taking the javelin from Liu

:34:34.:34:40.

Qizhen. That strengthens the Australian lead with China in second

:34:41.:34:44.

and England and Japan sharing third place. But Bolt's All-Stars are yet

:34:45.:34:52.

to use their power play and with the 4x100 still could we could yet be in

:34:53.:34:54.

for a photo finish. The elimination mile for the men, it

:34:55.:35:10.

was chaotic in the Williams. So much is riding on the captain for

:35:11.:35:17.

Australia. -- in the women's. Cornish is 28 tomorrow, Weir is

:35:18.:35:23.

pretty experienced. Kipchirchir getting around gout and he will work

:35:24.:35:39.

up quickly -- around Gao. He is at the front on the inside, Gregson,

:35:40.:35:44.

and that was frustrating in Rio, we all wanted him to get out and get

:35:45.:35:49.

that free run and uses great kick. I think this sort of risk will suit

:35:50.:35:54.

him because he does have a vast kick at the back end. Kipchirchir has to

:35:55.:36:01.

be careful here. They will hang on, the All-Stars but it is tight and

:36:02.:36:06.

Weir is out. Ryan Gregson is leading. What's of tactics did Ryan

:36:07.:36:14.

have? It looks like he is front running. He is not normally a front

:36:15.:36:20.

runner but this is a different race of the elimination, and he will not

:36:21.:36:24.

give up the lead easy. He will not let the back runners catch him. Go

:36:25.:36:30.

on, Ryan! He will not give anyone too much of a chance. When we do our

:36:31.:36:35.

sons, I think if Ryan wins we cannot lose to the Bolt All-Stars tonight

:36:36.:36:40.

unless there is a disaster in the relay. We work it out, we have to

:36:41.:36:45.

state 120 points in front. So far it looks good. Safe here because it

:36:46.:36:55.

looks like Gareth Andrew is going to be off the back -- Gao Tongyou. Does

:36:56.:37:03.

he usually listen to you? I don't think he is listening now! Gregson

:37:04.:37:12.

is leading Kipchirchir, Cornish is in third place and then a long gap

:37:13.:37:20.

to Kawamura. You make a lot of sense here because in awake and he doesn't

:37:21.:37:23.

have to spend too much energy because he is pretty safe. And he

:37:24.:37:28.

told me to let him know how safe he is because he doesn't want to blow

:37:29.:37:34.

up. He has plenty of room. Plenty of room, you're safe! Keep this

:37:35.:37:39.

control! Get ready for the last lap! It looks like it is going to come

:37:40.:37:43.

down to the three at the front. I think the Japanese runner has fallen

:37:44.:37:47.

off the back. Cornish is interesting, he will be stoked to

:37:48.:37:50.

make it to the final lap because he has had a tough year with x-rays and

:37:51.:37:54.

sicknesses so he is happy to be racing but it is between Gregson and

:37:55.:38:01.

Kipchirchir who ran the three Nordtveit is earlier. Ryan is head

:38:02.:38:04.

and shoulders above the field -- the 300 metres earlier. He comes in with

:38:05.:38:16.

great confidence. And if I had Jen shouting at me, I would be running

:38:17.:38:21.

faster! If Australia can win it, I think they will win the whole night.

:38:22.:38:26.

Cornish will get the third place. This last 300 metres could determine

:38:27.:38:30.

if the Australian teams win. Let's go, Ryan! Your fine! The last 150!

:38:31.:38:42.

Let's go! And he does go, putting the foot down, look at this. The

:38:43.:38:46.

first Australian to make an Olympic 1500 metres men's final in 40 years

:38:47.:38:54.

in Rio and he is flying away and the Australians are going to get maximum

:38:55.:38:58.

points. How good is this? I've got to get to the finish line! You had

:38:59.:39:04.

better run quickly, young lady! The captain is flying and so is the

:39:05.:39:12.

Australian team! The co-captains are about to get together. What a run!

:39:13.:39:21.

Kipchirchir was second and Cornish was third. It has been a remarkable

:39:22.:39:25.

night from the Australian team and so many of the young athletes have

:39:26.:39:28.

been inspired by the veterans. Beautiful, lovely. Australia claims

:39:29.:39:37.

another win but will it be enough to hold off the Bolt All-Stars who will

:39:38.:39:40.

use their power play in the final event of the night and their

:39:41.:39:45.

favourite, the 4x100 metre relay, featuring the man himself, Usain

:39:46.:39:50.

Bolt. The main show is still to company will run the bend tonight.

:39:51.:39:55.

Nobody has ever run a bend like him, world record-holder in the 200

:39:56.:39:58.

metres as well as the 100 in those relays. It is all business for him.

:39:59.:40:06.

He is getting the tape to tell him where he needs to take off. Because

:40:07.:40:11.

we have females going into males and males going into females, those bits

:40:12.:40:16.

of tape are important. We are about to conclude now. Day got away on the

:40:17.:40:23.

outside and she has already had a spectacular start, branding is going

:40:24.:40:28.

quick in the middle. Prandini has probably had the best and she gives

:40:29.:40:33.

it to Powell. Look at Asafa Powell go, running down hail and also

:40:34.:40:41.

Zhang. They are waiting, the Aussies are in trouble! We might be

:40:42.:40:48.

disqualified! Bowled flying to Morrison who has to wait but he is

:40:49.:40:55.

now await, the All-Stars are awake. Jenneke get it, I'm holding my

:40:56.:40:59.

breath. China will be second, third will be England, Japan are in fourth

:41:00.:41:04.

place and then New Zealand and Australia have made a mess of it.

:41:05.:41:08.

Have we been disqualified? I'm not sure. We will have to wait and see.

:41:09.:41:15.

Do Australia get 40 points which is what we need to win? Jack Hale is

:41:16.:41:21.

about to pass the button to the Breeze Lapierre. He has no chance of

:41:22.:41:29.

getting it -- Fabrice Lapierre. They are well outside the changeover box.

:41:30.:41:36.

Not good. Back to you. Make, you have seen the replay, it is clear

:41:37.:41:41.

that Australia ran out of the box which means you are victors the

:41:42.:41:42.

night will Jess! Perseverance is the key! Push

:41:43.:41:51.

hard and anything is possible! I said earlier, anything is possible

:41:52.:41:57.

and we won. How do you always get it done, you were happy and then angry

:41:58.:42:02.

and you got the job done? We have a good team and they pushed on and

:42:03.:42:05.

tried their best and that is the key thing. You were quite confident they

:42:06.:42:12.

ran out-of-the-box? I could see the yellow line. I have been doing track

:42:13.:42:16.

and field for years, there Arter yellow lines, one at the start and

:42:17.:42:19.

one at the end and it was clearly outside. We can see it here. That's

:42:20.:42:25.

it out! It's over! Cancel Christmas! outside. We can see it here. That's

:42:26.:42:32.

That is Fabrice Lapierre and he was keen to run against you. That is why

:42:33.:42:40.

he went out to quick but I was too far ahead! I will get confirmation

:42:41.:42:44.

to make sure you get the overall victory. That means you have a huge

:42:45.:42:48.

lead going into Saturday night. We're winners, that's what we do, we

:42:49.:42:52.

always win! It's an all-star team! Well done tonight, you got it done.

:42:53.:43:00.

What a race and what a result. With the Bolt All-Stars taking the

:43:01.:43:05.

bigotry in sensational circumstances -- the victory.

:43:06.:43:10.

Athletes also wear microphones and heart rate monitors to bring a new perspective to the sport.

Introduced by Gabby Logan, the competition is points-based with an overall winner crowned in the Grand Final in the next episode.
