2016 Olympics - and tonight we go behind the scenes on the final
Plus, another Olympian will be pushing the Lotto Button.
Our draw master tonight is Tony Born and the draws are being overseen
In the last week ?3.2 million has been paid out in Thunderball prizes.
No messing about, here we go. But total of 39 balls to pick from in
the first machine, you just choose five, that is how the game works.
Three opportunities to play this game, Wednesdays, Fridays and
Saturdays. Finally, from this, our first
machine. Do you have as part of your selection number 14?
For the top prize of half ?1 million, we can draw one of them.
Around and around they go. These are the Thunderball numbers again, in
ascending order. The Thunderball tonight is number
eight. Now, the Rio Olympics
have officially begun, and the hundreds of Team GB athletes
about to take part, have visited a National Lottery funded
pre-Olympic games training camp. We took our cameras behind

We are in Belo Horizonte, one hour north of Rio, getting ready for the
Olympic Games. I've exceeded what I expected to see when I got here. You
want the best facilities and you wanted to be a nice comfortable
environment and what we have here in Belo Horizonte is amazing. We are so
fortunate to train here, indoor 50 metre Paul -- pool and we are so
close to where we are actually competing. My job is to measure we
have everything we need and the athletes have the preparation they
need to deliver their best performance. Having the coaches here
and the support staff and good training equipment means I can make
sure that everything is going to be ready for Rio, it is really
important. The prep has been amazing, we have physios and
doctors, strength and conditioning coaches, it is the extra 1% which
makes you an all-round elite athlete. National Lottery funding
makes the world of difference to any athlete competing. If it wasn't for
you guys we would not be here, you find the training camps and
competitions, this amazing facility -- fund. They are bringing back
medals for your future, for the kids and for everyone, so the next
generation can have the treatment we are getting right now. Let the
Olympic Games begin. You can find more about the Lottery
funded athletes that you support, out at the Rio Olympics
