which is not good for a nail technician. I know. People are


probably biting their nails at home too especially if you have a


Lottery ticket. It's time to cross over to Lottery HQ for the Lotto


draw. Welcome back. Loving that new rinse.


What will it be, �16,000, �25,000 or �40,000 for Charl and Faye?


We'll find out soon. But first, it's only 20 days now


until the Olympic Games begin, which is promising to be our most


successful Games ever. National Lottery players have


helped fund the development of so many of our talented Olympic


athletes. The funding isn't going to end


after London 2012, it will go on to help them prepare for Rio 2016 and


for many Games to come. Tonight, we meet 2016 boxing


My name is Qais Ashfaq, I'm a boxer. I box for Great Britain. I was nine


years old my cousin and my uncle took me to the gym. It felt like I


was meant to be there. I loved it. I've been going training ever since.


You have just got to be determined and focused and train hard really.


If you train hard you will improve on your speed, strength foot work.


If you work hard you will get better and better. Two years ago I


go the on the GB team. I was boxing really well. I was best at the


weight in Great Britain. Now I'm Lottery-funded. I think without


that I don't think I would be able to improve as much as I have been


doing recently. I was a bit off track when I was a bit younger. You


learn a lot of discipline through boxing. I don't know where I would


be without boxing now. I help out with the kids. I teach them how to


box. It keeps the kids off the streets and makes sure they are not


messing around. They haven't been in the sport that long they look up


to me. I'm there to help them out whenever they need. In the amateur


game, it's not a long time. When you are in a ring it feels like a


long time. It's not just throwing punches it's in and out really fast


speeds. You do feel it by the end of it. Once I go through the ropes


and into the ring I'm like another person. I try my best not to get


hit. When you do get hit sometimes you get a buzzing in your ears. The


way I box, I'm a counter puncher. I have to be relaxed and patient.


That is how I have always been. By the 2016 Olympics I will be 23. By


then I will have all the experience of the worlds, Europeans and


winning. And I will go to the Europeans confident and come back


with the gold medal. My name is Qais Ashfaq and with your help one


day I can become an Olympic champion. Qais Ashfaq hashtag fit,


I'm sure you will agree, ladies and gentlemen.


If you missed basketball ace, Jo Leedham's film last week, you can


catch it online, just follow the links.

Back to tonight and now it's time for Lotto.

775 rooms in Buckingham Palace. You threw it away. Envelope 11 is of no


interest. What we are interested in is your secret fortune. Your secret


Their is a cheque made out with your names to the tune of �40,000.


Who will hold on to it? There we go. That is a bit of a souvenir. The


Houses of Parliament have another 300 rooms. For everybody at home,
