Hello and welcome to the 2012 gymnastics World Cup in Glasgow.

:00:32.:00:36.

The by new Emirates Arena is all set to host 16 of the world's top

:00:36.:00:40.

gymnasts in a one-day All-Around competition. And this is the first

:00:40.:00:44.

time members of the British team will be performing on home soil

:00:44.:00:54.
:00:54.:01:02.

since their hugely successful Beautiful routine! Thank you very

:01:02.:01:12.
:01:12.:01:15.

much! He has done the job. Wow, wow, wow. This is looking very good.

:01:15.:01:25.
:01:25.:01:28.

Yes! Great Britain take a bronze in the men's team final! That was

:01:28.:01:35.

super stuff. Lewis Smith, now is the time. That is superb. Lewis

:01:35.:01:40.

Smith and maxed between them, silver and bronze. Their entire

:01:40.:01:45.

gymnastic career has been building up to the next few moments. Beth

:01:45.:01:50.

Tweddle has an Olympic medal at long last. Those pictures are still

:01:50.:01:53.

give me goose bumps, and who better to reminisce with than the person

:01:53.:01:57.

who has been the face and body of British gymnastics for more than a

:01:57.:02:00.

decade, three-time world champion and our Olympic bronze medallist,

:02:00.:02:04.

Beth Tweddle? Great to see you again after a summer that I bet you

:02:04.:02:08.

and the team will not be able to stop talking about. It was an

:02:09.:02:13.

amazing summer. We knew we had a strong team, but nobody anticipated

:02:13.:02:18.

how well we would do. We knew the games were going to be baked with

:02:18.:02:24.

it being on home soil. But as soon as we all walked into that North

:02:24.:02:27.

Greenwich Arena, the crowd just erupted. It gave me goose pimples.

:02:27.:02:32.

You will never get a scenario like that again. We were all lucky

:02:32.:02:37.

enough to do our best performances. We came home with our Olympic dream,

:02:37.:02:43.

a medal. Four medals in all. The other day, I heard you of being

:02:43.:02:46.

talked about alongside the rower Katherine Grainger in the context

:02:47.:02:50.

of how much you have both done for women in your sport. How much of a

:02:50.:02:54.

relief was it for you to finally add an Olympic medal to your huge

:02:54.:02:58.

collection? It was a massive relief. Everyone knew before the Games that

:02:58.:03:03.

it was my last shot at an Olympic medal. It has taken me a long time

:03:03.:03:07.

to get there, but as soon as I saw my name next to third place, I

:03:07.:03:12.

looked at my coach and I could feel a massive weight being lifted off

:03:12.:03:17.

my shoulder. It was also great for my family. Everyone has worked hard

:03:17.:03:21.

to get me to those games, and I did not want to be remembered as the

:03:22.:03:25.

most successful gymnast that never picked up an Olympic medal.

:03:25.:03:29.

feels as though the medal has let you out of your cage and you have

:03:29.:03:33.

become a thrill seeker. Tell us about your adventures? The 20 years,

:03:33.:03:39.

it was all about gymnastics. Suddenly, I have a bit of freedom.

:03:39.:03:43.

The first thing I did was When walking, so I was upside down on a

:03:43.:03:48.

plane. My mum was more nervous than watching me at the Olympics. Then I

:03:48.:03:52.

did snowboarding and tried a bit of golf, lots of different things. I

:03:52.:03:56.

might find something I enjoy. hearing rumours of a reality TV

:03:57.:04:01.

show. You will have to wait and see. We look forward to hearing about

:04:01.:04:05.

that. Beth will be with us throughout the show. Let's see what

:04:05.:04:08.

else is coming up. The women's All-Around Features the

:04:08.:04:15.

youngest member of Team GB, Rebecca Tunney, and the 2006 all around

:04:15.:04:17.

were champion Vanessa Ferrari from Italy. A strong line-up in the

:04:17.:04:21.

men's competition includes two of the three all around Olympic

:04:21.:04:24.

medallists as well as Britain's Kristian Thomas and Dan Purvis.

:04:24.:04:28.

Angela Smith takes a break from dancing to tell us about life away

:04:28.:04:33.

from the gym. We start with the women's event, anti-Brits who have

:04:33.:04:39.

had very different fortunes in 2012 -- two Brits who have had very

:04:39.:04:45.

different fortunes. She is having a wonderful time here. You seemed to

:04:45.:04:49.

cope with that crowd so well at the Olympic Games. It did not seem to

:04:50.:04:53.

faze you, being the youngest, shortest and lightest member of

:04:53.:04:58.

Team GB. You seemed to take it in your stride. Were you as calm as

:04:58.:05:02.

you looked? You are always going to be nervous at competitions, even if

:05:02.:05:09.

it is just a little one. But we were all behind the judge there. We

:05:09.:05:14.

knew how to deal with it and keep each other calm. I was just

:05:14.:05:20.

oblivious to it all, because it was those are real. Everything just

:05:20.:05:30.
:05:30.:05:33.

happened, really. -- it was so so You were a reserve for the Olympic

:05:33.:05:37.

team, which meant you had a gap in training. Has it been difficult for

:05:37.:05:42.

you to get back into it? A lot more difficult than I thought. You don't

:05:42.:05:48.

expect it to be as hard as it is. You get your skills back quickly,

:05:48.:05:55.

but your fitness takes more time to build up. And confidence takes time.

:05:55.:06:03.

With it being so tough for you to not make the team for London 2012,

:06:03.:06:07.

has that give a new motivation to go for Rio 2016, or have you got

:06:07.:06:13.

other plans? You always have to look at it one step at a time. Not

:06:13.:06:17.

making this Olympics was emotionally hard. You have put

:06:17.:06:22.

years of your life into it, it was not just the year before, you

:06:22.:06:27.

worked your whole life for this one goal. Another four years is a long

:06:27.:06:32.

time. Gymnastics takes out a lot of your body. It is not just whether I

:06:32.:06:37.

can handle it, it is my body. If my body can't take it, I can't keep

:06:37.:06:42.

going. You have to look at each part of the year at a time. With

:06:42.:06:48.

the next competition coming up, can I make it? You can't lead at that

:06:48.:06:54.

far ahead. You're fantastic year means you have been shortlisted for

:06:54.:06:57.

Sports Personality of the Year 2012. How did you feel when you heard the

:06:57.:07:02.

news? I was a bit shocked. I remember watching it when I was

:07:02.:07:06.

younger and thinking wow, look at those celebrities on the telly. To

:07:06.:07:11.

be part of it is a great opportunity. It must feel a strange

:07:11.:07:19.

that at 16, you are not the little one any more. No, I am told now! --

:07:19.:07:25.

I am old now. Sorry. Rebecca Tunney has had an incredible year, hasn't

:07:25.:07:30.

she? It has been amazing. At the world championships last year, we

:07:30.:07:35.

would not have put her in our team for the Olympics. But she worked so

:07:35.:07:39.

hard, went to the Olympic trials, stormed them, became British

:07:39.:07:43.

champion and sealed a place. Then she went to the Olympics at just 15,

:07:43.:07:49.

the youngest member of Team GB, and withstood the pressure. It did not

:07:49.:07:54.

faze her. She rose to the pressure and had an amazing games. You have

:07:54.:07:58.

known the other Brit Performing today, Niamh Rippin, for years. She

:07:58.:08:04.

was so disappointed at not making the London 2012 team. What can she

:08:04.:08:07.

do to pick herself up and remain competitive within the women's

:08:07.:08:14.

team? It is always difficult when you don't make a championships, but

:08:14.:08:18.

she will have had a long think and thought to herself, I still love

:08:18.:08:22.

the sport. She has worked so hard to get back and be ready for the

:08:22.:08:27.

end of the season. She will show what she is made of. The cockroach,

:08:27.:08:32.

Amanda, is now the national head coach for the women's team -- your

:08:32.:08:35.

coach is now the national head coach. What changes do you think we

:08:35.:08:40.

will see? The outlook she has, she has so

:08:40.:08:44.

much experience. She is the only coach on the female side of

:08:44.:08:49.

gymnastics that has brought home medals. She knows what it takes to

:08:49.:08:53.

be at the top. She will be looking for the little pointers that will

:08:53.:08:59.

help bring the younger gymnasts Durran hopefully bring home medals.

:08:59.:09:02.

Moving on to today, Vanessa Ferrari from Italy is the highest ranked

:09:02.:09:06.

female here out of the age gymnasts competing. But she is not

:09:06.:09:13.

guaranteed to be on top of the podium? Definitely not. Last

:09:13.:09:15.

weekend, Elizabeth Price, one of the reserves for the Americans for

:09:15.:09:20.

the Olympics, was the top ranked one injured guard. I am sure she

:09:20.:09:24.

will want to take home another gold medal. Let's get on with watching

:09:24.:09:28.

some of the women's All-Around action. Are commentary team are

:09:28.:09:38.
:09:38.:10:07.

have got this afternoon, and it is about consistency. The better you

:10:07.:10:17.
:10:17.:10:25.

champion just a week ago. A very good all-round gymnast. Just missed

:10:25.:10:35.
:10:35.:10:46.

out on the Olympic Games. She is a makes it look easy. Lamb's one foot

:10:46.:10:55.

either side of the white line, beautiful height, beautiful flight.

:10:55.:11:05.
:11:05.:11:23.

Big smile from Elizabeth Price, and vaulting. That is a huge score, and

:11:23.:11:33.
:11:33.:11:33.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 46 seconds

:11:33.:12:20.

This vault can score a maximum of she will be delighted with that.

:12:20.:12:25.

Very good start. Slightly to one side, but nothing too much. She was

:12:25.:12:35.
:12:35.:13:04.

twist, but it is a very difficult vault. She did not really explode

:13:04.:13:14.
:13:14.:13:15.

off the top of the horse. She was very briefly on it. Just lacking in

:13:15.:13:23.

that explosion from the top. Yes, that real dynamic approach. The

:13:23.:13:28.

most this can score his 15th. Ha run is not as powerful as the

:13:28.:13:38.
:13:38.:14:01.

previous two gymnasts, so she does The slow-motion replay will show us

:14:01.:14:05.

that the feet were not quite cleanly round for the second part

:14:05.:14:08.

of the twist, which caused her to need a couple of steps to recover

:14:08.:14:18.
:14:18.:14:22.

herself, but it was a gutsy worked so hard to get the double

:14:22.:14:32.
:14:32.:14:32.

twist. The landing caused the adjustment to the side. Yes, if you

:14:32.:14:36.

watched the slow-motion, she bends her arms a bit on the top of the

:14:36.:14:46.
:14:46.:14:59.

platform, so she does not get the Germany, a good all-round performer.

:14:59.:15:08.

She is the only gymnast not using the Van Gogh in front of the board.

:15:08.:15:13.

A straight somersault with half turn up. That is what we have seen

:15:13.:15:19.

on default more traditionally. She gets good height and flight, that

:15:19.:15:23.

has its own tariff. He is not as high as the double twist, but it is

:15:23.:15:31.

well performed. She did it very well. To get the proportion, the

:15:31.:15:37.

push back through the shoulders, that is not an easy task. She

:15:37.:15:47.
:15:47.:15:48.

pulled it round very nicely. Good, efficient faulting -- vaulting.

:15:49.:15:53.

There is a spring at the front of the platform, and she uses that to

:15:53.:16:03.
:16:03.:16:20.

the youngest Team GB athlete in London. Is she the youngest British

:16:20.:16:26.

champion ever? Negative macro. At one time, we could have them

:16:26.:16:34.

younger than 16. But she is in her first year as a senior. She was our

:16:34.:16:44.
:16:44.:16:48.

top scorer at the 2012 Olympics. Very clean. No problems. My great

:16:48.:16:56.

performance from Rebecca Tunney. The vaulting has been iffy apart

:16:56.:17:02.

from a Elizabeth Price. This is an opportunity for Rebecca to get into

:17:02.:17:10.

second place. She has got a great opportunity. Very purposeful in her

:17:10.:17:15.

approach. A good conversion upwards, nice and clean in the air. The

:17:15.:17:23.

double twist was completed. That was good for 10. It was one of the

:17:23.:17:29.

features of the British women at the Olympics, they upped their game.

:17:29.:17:34.

The double twists were needed to make the team final, and they've

:17:34.:17:44.
:17:44.:17:47.

responded fantastically. That has placed her into second place. The

:17:47.:17:57.
:17:57.:18:10.

Just a tiny loss of tension in the legs during the vault, but a lot of

:18:10.:18:16.

flight. She is always determined and competitive. I love watching

:18:16.:18:21.

her work, she is what the sport is all about. She loves it, she is

:18:21.:18:26.

aggressive, she attacks, she is competitive, and that was

:18:26.:18:31.

impressive. But when it beat Rebecca Tunney? I would not have

:18:31.:18:36.

thought so. It is a lower tariff. She was good and clean in her

:18:36.:18:41.

direction, she landed with her feet in the middle, and she hoped to

:18:41.:18:50.

decide. But she has bent knees before they need to be bent. She

:18:50.:19:00.
:19:00.:19:25.

Beth Tweddle may have been up to all sorts of exciting things while

:19:25.:19:29.

taking a break, but she has been missing her bars, so it earlier,

:19:30.:19:34.

the crowds here were treated to pay special performance from the

:19:34.:19:38.

Olympic bronze medallist to open up the whole event. She has now packed

:19:38.:19:43.

away her sparkly leotard again there to join Christine Still and

:19:43.:19:53.
:19:53.:20:13.

gymnasts in this competition, she has represented the company at --

:20:13.:20:17.

represented her country at five World Championships. We were there

:20:17.:20:27.
:20:27.:20:58.

routine. A few extra elements to stop it being at the top drawer,

:20:58.:21:05.

but this is good, strong twisting. It was businesslike, she never

:21:05.:21:11.

looked in danger. She looked very comfortable. She did not link some

:21:11.:21:16.

of the skills, but it was businesslike, every skill was with

:21:16.:21:22.

precision, she was not worried about anything. It is a premium

:21:22.:21:27.

rating, I have known her for a few years, she will get on with it.

:21:27.:21:37.
:21:37.:21:48.

That will have done her standing no plenty of time to control it. She

:21:48.:21:57.

has got height, she can see the bar before she puts her hands there. A

:21:57.:22:03.

slight leg separation. This is a very long routine, but she picks up

:22:03.:22:13.
:22:13.:22:27.

the difficulty throughout. A small Ferrari. The world and European

:22:27.:22:32.

all-round champion. Going back five or six years. And she is still

:22:32.:22:42.
:22:42.:23:04.

impressive. Another gymnast without delighted with that. That rating

:23:04.:23:10.

was fabulous. There were a few areas here and there, but to be

:23:10.:23:16.

able to put that dismount at the end, she will be pleased with that.

:23:16.:23:22.

You can see in the background the gymnasts are trying to chalk it up

:23:22.:23:32.

for need Ripon. -- for Niamh Rippin. She likes a bit less chalk. Denies

:23:32.:23:40.

height. The coach is standing in for the safety aspect. The smallest

:23:40.:23:46.

LED separation, but that is all the judges need. It was not quite a

:23:46.:23:54.

handstand there. She uses an extra swing to build up her speed into

:23:54.:24:04.
:24:04.:24:09.

the dismount. Then, the double front. The smallest hop on landing.

:24:09.:24:19.
:24:19.:24:32.

That takes her into second place. over the years. But she can perform

:24:32.:24:42.
:24:42.:24:57.

well, she has got very good basic has not taken any sort of extra

:24:57.:25:05.

swing. A double front dismount. A very deep landing, but well held.

:25:05.:25:10.

She will be pleased with that. had a few troubles last weekend, so

:25:10.:25:15.

she will be pleased with that. She will take a big reduction on the

:25:15.:25:19.

dismount, but she is a fighter, she got to her feet and presented to

:25:19.:25:26.

the judges. She is one of the team that took the silver medal at the

:25:26.:25:30.

European Championships in 2010. She has got a better pedigree behind

:25:30.:25:35.

her. She has had a couple of years of injury, she has had to fight

:25:35.:25:41.

hard to get back. It is nice and high, not a lot of production.

:25:42.:25:50.

Straight into the perfect handstand. Because that was connected, she

:25:50.:25:56.

gets the difficulty bonus. In her mind, she will think, I have got to

:25:56.:26:05.

concentrate for the dismount. It just set her off for the dismount.

:26:05.:26:15.
:26:15.:26:42.

The low landing will take a very swings with great power. Some of

:26:42.:26:52.
:26:52.:27:03.

them floater round, she how was her She is taking a swing between each

:27:04.:27:11.

release. She is not linking it. A lovely height, a lovely hands than

:27:12.:27:18.

shape. Each gymnast has to have a full pirouette in the routine. She

:27:18.:27:22.

missed a couple of connections, but for me, that is the best routine we

:27:22.:27:30.

have seen so far today. She is chasing Kim Bui, her team-mate.

:27:30.:27:36.

think that will score enough to overtake her team-mate. It is very

:27:36.:27:44.

powerful, everybody knows that she is a specialist. This is where she

:27:44.:27:48.

sometimes adds an extra full-term. She has played it slightly safer

:27:48.:27:57.

today. She can see the bar before she goes for the catch. Very big

:27:57.:28:07.

flight, this is what the judges want to say, lots of amplitude.

:28:07.:28:15.

When she is hitting the handstand, she is always in the perfect shape.

:28:15.:28:25.
:28:25.:28:59.

A great this mad, that is the the gymnastics club there. This is

:28:59.:29:09.
:29:09.:29:12.

the big combination. She is building a difficulty. This is what

:29:12.:29:17.

Beth Tweddle was talking about, you have to link your difficulty. We

:29:17.:29:27.
:29:27.:29:37.

have to see the full Pyrrha wet. -- beginning to end, she is linking

:29:37.:29:42.

everything. That landing at the end was perfect. So she is very happy

:29:42.:29:52.

with that, and her coach is also very happy. There was the nice

:29:52.:30:02.
:30:02.:30:02.

handstand. Nice height, gets plenty of time to see the bar before going

:30:02.:30:09.

down to the Loe Bar. Straight into the handstand. Great lines from

:30:09.:30:19.
:30:19.:30:24.

Rebecca. Straight into the dismount. And a big smile to finish it off.

:30:24.:30:29.

And she has put herself on top of the pile. But the USA are still to

:30:29.:30:39.
:30:39.:30:43.

come. That was a great performance from Rebecca. Elizabeth Price is a

:30:43.:30:53.
:30:53.:31:01.

very powerful, strong gymnast. Lovely flight. Full pirouette. She

:31:01.:31:11.
:31:11.:31:12.

took a little extra swing. Up into the handstand. Beautiful elements

:31:12.:31:22.
:31:22.:31:23.

linked together well. Up into a double somersault. That was the

:31:23.:31:29.

biggest difficulty we have seen from the girls on the dismount.

:31:29.:31:33.

is such a power for gymnast, and that really comes across in the

:31:33.:31:39.

releases. It is when gymnasts like her go up that it makes the other

:31:39.:31:45.

releases looked so much smaller. Luckily, she has gone last, so the

:31:45.:31:49.

judges did not have anything to compare against, but that was a

:31:49.:31:54.

fantastic routine. And Rebecca Tunney had to face that, and she

:31:54.:32:02.

did. So much height that she doesn't know what to do with her

:32:02.:32:09.

time. That was one of the most difficult combinations I have seen

:32:09.:32:15.

being done. Every skill she has, she just does with precision. Then

:32:15.:32:22.

she winds up into this difficult dismount. Just the smallest step,

:32:22.:32:26.

but there are not a lot of deductions in that routine for the

:32:26.:32:36.
:32:36.:32:37.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 46 seconds

:32:37.:33:19.

judges to take. She is reigning years old, from Stuttgart. Five

:33:19.:33:26.

world championship experiences. You can't buy that sort of nous. Good

:33:26.:33:36.
:33:36.:33:36.

feel for competition. She showed her experience there. She was

:33:36.:33:42.

slightly off, but she used her middle strength to pull herself on.

:33:42.:33:52.
:33:52.:33:58.

Free cartwheel. These three elements are worth 0.4. Just a tiny

:33:58.:34:08.
:34:08.:34:13.

wobble, but controls it well. There are marks for artistry, rhythm. On

:34:13.:34:22.

the beam, they like to see fluency and not too many hesitations. It

:34:22.:34:29.

makes it easier to stop. The more fluent the routine, the more taxing

:34:29.:34:39.
:34:39.:34:43.

ates. But she is very precise with every element. You can always tell

:34:43.:34:50.

the dismount is coming - the Poor's, the concentration. She did well to

:34:50.:34:55.

hold onto that landed. Her hips were right behind the feet as she

:34:55.:35:05.
:35:05.:35:06.

landed. Scary Debach, very quick feet. Did a great job. Very focused

:35:06.:35:16.
:35:16.:35:16.

on the beam, and thought very quickly to rescue the dismount.

:35:16.:35:23.

This was then example of her experience, quickly adjusting. From

:35:23.:35:33.
:35:33.:35:36.

there in, she really did focus and concentrate. She needed this

:35:36.:35:46.
:35:46.:35:55.

performance at this stage. Good awareness. Strong performances to

:35:55.:36:05.
:36:05.:36:06.

come. The first of those is from her team-mate, Elizabeth Seitz. She

:36:06.:36:16.

is a tough competitor. She is the German national champion. She has

:36:16.:36:21.

been the leader of the German team for the last few years, more

:36:22.:36:26.

renowned for her work on the asymmetric bars. But look at the

:36:26.:36:36.
:36:36.:36:36.

power on the front somersault. Superb jumps, linked together.

:36:36.:36:41.

Strong on the free cartwheel. It is all about the middle tension,

:36:41.:36:50.

keeping the core of the body under tension. She did that well. She

:36:50.:36:55.

came out at the right time. The gymnasts have to count not only

:36:55.:37:00.

acrobatic moves, but also dance elements, leaps and jumps. At least

:37:00.:37:04.

three of their difficulty have to be spins and leeks, so if you can

:37:04.:37:14.
:37:14.:37:17.

add in the double spin, that is great. She gets good height on all

:37:17.:37:27.
:37:27.:37:30.

her elements. She really had to fight. It is a very difficult leap.

:37:30.:37:40.
:37:40.:37:44.

Double pike. But was a powerful routine. Sharp on the acrobatics

:37:44.:37:50.

and powerful elsewhere apart from one wobble. Ilott has -- Elizabeth

:37:50.:37:56.

Seitz was determined not to part company. She will have done her

:37:56.:38:04.

prospects no harm. This was very impressive stuff. Some of the

:38:04.:38:14.
:38:14.:38:30.

acrobatics were very sharp. Very launch yourself a bit and hope you

:38:30.:38:37.

come out at the right time. But her power on the dismount, again, a bit

:38:37.:38:47.
:38:47.:38:53.

Pike to on the landing, but that wasn't a strong performance. At the

:38:53.:39:03.
:39:03.:39:09.

moment, she is top of the pile. Two performances still to come. At 16,

:39:09.:39:16.

and Rebecca Tunney showed a measure of focus and concentration earlier.

:39:16.:39:26.
:39:26.:39:42.

Super hi front somersault. She is very powerful and light. Lovely

:39:42.:39:49.

sleep with the quarter term. -- lovely leap with the quarter turn.

:39:49.:39:59.
:39:59.:40:09.

She joins those leaps well. You can see her focus and determination.

:40:09.:40:16.

All the gymnasts have to join two acrobatic skills. Back-flip,

:40:16.:40:26.
:40:26.:40:29.

Somerset, and she was off. She was there. Just a little unsettled now

:40:29.:40:39.
:40:39.:41:12.

see her power. Just a bit of lack of precision in the middle. Still

:41:12.:41:21.

one apparatus to go. If she was disappointed, she did not show it.

:41:21.:41:26.

They need support at this stage after a mistake, but so high on

:41:26.:41:32.

that front somersault. She has got superpower. But she is quite tight

:41:32.:41:38.

in the Achilles, and it is difficult to absorb the landings.

:41:38.:41:48.

But she was well off. Hips completely in the wrong direction.

:41:48.:41:58.
:41:58.:42:30.

vault. Very accurate on bars. What with an easy mount, but this is not

:42:30.:42:40.
:42:40.:43:09.

easy. Full twisting Tabak, she joining the forward and backward

:43:09.:43:19.
:43:19.:43:39.

elements. That was rather tentative, is not particularly fluent. And the

:43:39.:43:49.
:43:49.:44:00.

double pike. That was beautiful. This was just so square, look at

:44:00.:44:10.
:44:10.:44:17.

that. Very impressive work. Absolutely packed with power, isn't

:44:17.:44:27.
:44:27.:44:27.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 46 seconds

:44:27.:45:11.

She is a confident tumbler. Nice double are buried -- double Arabian.

:45:11.:45:21.
:45:21.:45:21.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 46 seconds

:45:21.:46:20.

music with the movement, doing very well. Double pike, beautifully

:46:20.:46:30.
:46:30.:46:30.

performed. Well done, Niamh. She has had a really good competition.

:46:30.:46:38.

Comfort and performance. That was a brilliant routine. She has always

:46:38.:46:43.

been known as a powerful gymnast. And she has had a great competition

:46:43.:46:50.

today, to finish on that routine. This middle tumble, into the two

:46:50.:46:53.

and a half twists, unfortunately she just took a little step out at

:46:54.:47:00.

the end. The triple twist is fully credited, because it is all the way

:47:00.:47:10.
:47:10.:47:16.

she sells the fruiting well. Yes, and this is the last tumble. That

:47:16.:47:20.

is what the judges want to see. It is the final impression that the

:47:20.:47:25.

judges get before she finishes. She will be really pleased with her

:47:25.:47:33.

whole performance. Momentarily at least she finds herself on top of

:47:33.:47:43.

the pile. Vanessa Ferrari, stand by for some thrills. She is still so

:47:43.:47:51.

impressive. One of her favourite and most successful apparatus.

:47:51.:48:00.

Standby. It could be great. She was a finalist at the Olympics on the

:48:00.:48:10.
:48:10.:48:10.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 46 seconds

:48:10.:49:42.

line. Gymnasts have to stay inside knows how to land a tumble! Hugely

:49:42.:49:48.

impressive from Vanessa Ferrari. good finish to her competition, she

:49:48.:49:53.

will rue the fact that she made the error on the beam. That was great

:49:53.:49:58.

to come back after the error. But she is known for her powerful

:49:58.:50:03.

tumbling. She has downgraded slightly, but it is still a very

:50:03.:50:09.

impressive floor routine. Sh straight into the tucked back, that

:50:09.:50:17.

is a very difficult combination. would not exactly describe her as a

:50:17.:50:21.

beautiful dancer, but she sells her routine. Ever since I have known

:50:21.:50:27.

her, she has been able to show off. She is not the best that sat at

:50:27.:50:32.

there, but they have worked really hard on knowing exactly where to

:50:32.:50:37.

sell it. She has had a great set of leaps. Perhaps her difficulty has

:50:37.:50:47.

gone down on the tumbling, but she made up for it. She always knows

:50:47.:50:51.

where the floor is, to show the landings. That is what the judges

:50:51.:51:01.
:51:01.:51:14.

Ahead of Niamh Rippin. And ahead of Wakana Inoue. Can she moved up from

:51:14.:51:22.

fourth place, into the top three positions? She was a finalist on

:51:22.:51:26.

the floor at the European Championships. She can tumble very

:51:26.:51:36.
:51:36.:51:36.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 46 seconds

:51:36.:52:52.

perfect timing! How about that! She powerful flick, lovely double pike.

:52:52.:53:00.

She lands beautifully. A great comeback from Rebecca Tunney. She

:53:00.:53:10.
:53:10.:53:10.

is a great gymnast. She has put the disappointment of being behind her.

:53:10.:53:15.

That will do her no harm at all. A great way to finish the competition.

:53:15.:53:21.

She has done herself proud. She can afford a little smile. Well done

:53:21.:53:31.
:53:31.:53:31.

ended. She has got unique tumbling as. She nailed the landing, she

:53:31.:53:39.

knows exactly where it is. This is the Van Gogh into the one and a

:53:39.:53:46.

half twists. There was a slight hesitation, so she will not get the

:53:46.:53:52.

combination for that. A good landing again, into the straddled

:53:52.:54:02.
:54:02.:54:03.

jump. The last Tumble, into the double pike. She needs 13.767 to go

:54:03.:54:13.
:54:13.:54:16.

into the lead. She is just off it! She is just behind Vanessa Ferrari

:54:16.:54:26.
:54:26.:54:26.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 46 seconds

:54:26.:55:36.

good, high, for twisting double good Judge -- very good landings.

:55:36.:55:46.
:55:46.:56:06.

will have done her no harm at all, she gave very little away. Not the

:56:06.:56:14.

most artistic, but very few errors. She was in third place coming in,

:56:14.:56:21.

and she will be keen to hold on to that position. Very impressive

:56:21.:56:31.

height on the tumbling. It was brilliant throughout. Just a small

:56:31.:56:36.

hop on landing, but the power and determination, she knows where the

:56:36.:56:46.
:56:46.:56:46.

landings are. That is the required double somersault tumble. She has

:56:46.:56:50.

got great leaps, showing all this Blitz, which is what is required to

:56:50.:56:57.

get them counted. The choreography was brilliant, it fitted the music

:56:57.:57:07.

brilliantly. Straight into the double pike landing at the end.

:57:07.:57:12.

good job from Ken Berry. What a great competition she has had! You

:57:12.:57:22.
:57:22.:57:39.

can see it in her face. She can now we will see it again here. But that

:57:39.:57:44.

was right out the floor, that is very expensive, because she landed

:57:44.:57:53.

out of the floor. At least half a Mark off. But she comes back world.

:57:53.:58:03.
:58:03.:58:05.

Very clean. She bounced out of the triple spin. She will only be

:58:05.:58:15.
:58:15.:58:48.

element as well as backward elements. We have seen only

:58:48.:58:58.
:58:58.:59:04.

very costly. The two and a half twists outside the floor area will

:59:04.:59:12.

be a big reduction. It could all change, she is leading -- she is

:59:12.:59:22.
:59:22.:59:24.

needing 13 to take the lead from as you land out of the floor area,

:59:24.:59:32.

she was out of line and the judges will deduct heavily for that. It

:59:32.:59:38.

was a shame, because the rest of the routine was so precise and well

:59:38.:59:43.

choreographed. The audience were enjoying it. But with the triple

:59:43.:59:50.

spin, they will not credit that. It will only be a double spin. And

:59:50.:59:57.

there was a small hop at the end. She knows that mistake will be very

:59:57.:00:06.

costly. It could cost her a medal. A little dip in focus for Elizabeth

:00:06.:00:12.

Seitz. What a great competition Elizabeth

:00:12.:00:22.
:00:22.:00:27.

price has had. She has really given us a demonstration of power.

:00:27.:00:37.
:00:37.:01:07.

Beautiful height on the twisting Cleanly landed. We have seen two

:01:07.:01:17.
:01:17.:01:18.

very big tumbles so far. She was out as she landed. We saw the flag

:01:18.:01:28.
:01:28.:02:05.

well there. But I can't say I felt that was quite as classy a

:02:05.:02:11.

performance as her bars and bolt. The First tumble was excellent.

:02:11.:02:21.
:02:21.:02:21.

That was just another level of gymnastics. Not many gymnasts do

:02:21.:02:28.

that. That is your next level of tumbling. Then she was a small step

:02:28.:02:34.

out. It will only cost her a point, so it will make no difference in

:02:34.:02:44.

the standings. And again, precision on this landing. Then the Double

:02:44.:02:50.

Tongue, and One Foot seemed to land out, and that will cost her again.

:02:51.:02:55.

That was an emphatic performance. She faltered on the last apparatus,

:02:55.:03:05.
:03:05.:03:36.

but emphatic. A superb all-round front of a home crowd? The home

:03:36.:03:41.

crowd were amazing. It really helped. I enjoyed it. Rebecca, you

:03:41.:03:48.

looked like you were enjoying it, too. Yeah, I was proud to do those

:03:48.:03:53.

routines. It was like the Olympics. After such an incredible year, you

:03:53.:03:58.

must be looking forward to a break over Christmas. Definitely. It has

:03:58.:04:05.

been hard. But that is just one Chisnall -- gymnastics is.

:04:05.:04:10.

Elizabeth, congratulations on your gold medal. It felt like you nailed

:04:10.:04:15.

it pretty early on. Yeah, I think I had a good lead after the vault. I

:04:15.:04:23.

tried to keep calm so I could maintain that lead. So I won!

:04:23.:04:27.

is the secret behind you peaking at this time of the year? I am not

:04:27.:04:36.

sure. I was just training harder. I was peaking during the summer,

:04:36.:04:41.

during trials back home, and I tried to keep that going. It was

:04:41.:04:44.

impressive that you have kept it going, because so many people are

:04:45.:04:50.

tired from the Olympics. What are your plans now for 2013? How did

:04:50.:04:55.

you find it performing in front of a huge crowd like this? Is it was a

:04:55.:04:58.

great experience being able to come to Glasgow and be in the World Cup.

:04:58.:05:03.

I enjoyed it. For 2013, I would like to go to the world

:05:04.:05:10.

championships. That will be a great experience for me. What do you make

:05:10.:05:16.

of the final women's podium? It seemed like the beam was the game

:05:16.:05:26.

changer. It was. It changed the rankings. After the floor, the

:05:26.:05:29.

standings did not change. Price was out there in a league of her own.

:05:29.:05:38.

She just was not going to get caught. Rebecca Tunney has had an

:05:38.:05:43.

incredible year, an exhausting year. But she still chose to compete in

:05:43.:05:46.

Glasgow. Is that because of the experience events like this can

:05:46.:05:52.

give her? Definitely. She has had a tiring year, but she had a rest

:05:52.:05:56.

after the Olympics. Now that she has finished here, she will take

:05:56.:06:00.

Christmas to chill out and get ready for next season. But the

:06:00.:06:04.

experience from events like this will help her leading up to Rio.

:06:04.:06:10.

was great to see how much the home fans got behind both Rebecca and

:06:10.:06:13.

her Niamh. It was a sell-out crowd today in a history that already has

:06:13.:06:18.

such a great sporting heritage. Sports fans will have even more to

:06:18.:06:22.

cheer soon, as Glasgow gears up to host the 2014 Commonwealth Games. A

:06:22.:06:26.

major element in Glasgow's successful bid was the fact that

:06:26.:06:30.

70% of the planned venues are in place. As well as the Emirates

:06:30.:06:35.

Arena, stadia like a Celtic Park, Hampden Park and the Sir Chris Hoy

:06:35.:06:40.

velodrome are up and running. The gymnastics will be staged at a

:06:40.:06:44.

venue still under construction in the West End of the city. With the

:06:44.:06:47.

great British public likely to be out in force, it is a fantastic

:06:47.:06:52.

prospect for the home nation's athletes, who received such Arab

:06:52.:06:56.

support in London this summer. Competing in the Olympics was my

:06:56.:07:01.

first competition in front of a home crowd, and it was fantastic. I

:07:01.:07:05.

will never forget the standing ovation as we walked out of the

:07:05.:07:10.

arena and the immense atmosphere. It is a big thing. Dan Purvis, who

:07:10.:07:17.

competes for Scotland, is particularly looking forward to the

:07:17.:07:20.

2014 games and sees them as a crucial stepping stone on the road

:07:20.:07:27.

to Rio in 2016. I have got the 2014 and 2015 World Championships in

:07:27.:07:34.

Glasgow. It is a good lead up. And Dan Keatings is on the Scottish

:07:34.:07:41.

squad, so we have a good team. have been joined by Sam Oldham, was

:07:41.:07:46.

part of the incredible bronze medal-winning team in 2012. Doesn't

:07:46.:07:51.

an event like this after the Olympics start to gear you're up

:07:51.:07:55.

for Glasgow 2014? Definitely. At the London Olympics, the crowds

:07:55.:08:00.

were unbelievable. We really felt the home support. Today, with Dan

:08:00.:08:04.

Purvis and Kristian Thomas and the two girls, it will be a great event

:08:04.:08:08.

and will set the scene for two years' time. It is great to have

:08:08.:08:13.

the Commonwealth Games on home soil again so soon after the Olympics.

:08:13.:08:18.

Beth, 2012 has been a huge year for British sport and the public do not

:08:18.:08:21.

have to wait long before another home games. In his great. Everyone

:08:22.:08:25.

keeps asking what they should be after the Olympics, but with

:08:25.:08:29.

Glasgow just around the corner, we have something else to look forward

:08:29.:08:34.

to. Glasgow are hosting the Gymnastics World Cup and the

:08:34.:08:39.

velodrome was completed a few weeks ago. It is an opportunity to keep

:08:39.:08:43.

youngsters inspired. So I am, for you and the other gymnasts, you

:08:43.:08:49.

have this great road to Rio with another major championships here in

:08:49.:08:53.

Glasgow with the 2015 worlds here. It will be amazing having the 2015

:08:53.:08:57.

World Championships on home soil. That is where we qualify for the

:08:57.:09:01.

Olympic Games. To have the home crowd behind you really does help,

:09:01.:09:05.

as we have seen over the summer. So we have the Commonwealth Games in

:09:05.:09:10.

two years, so we will get used to the arena. Then the 2015 were

:09:10.:09:14.

championships should hopefully give us an advantage. Back here in 2012,

:09:14.:09:19.

we still have the men's all-around competition to look forward to. The

:09:19.:09:27.

Olympic champion in this event is not competing today. In London, the

:09:27.:09:30.

Japanese gymnast showed why he is the star of the sport. But behind

:09:30.:09:36.

him, the battle for bronze and silver went down to the wire.

:09:36.:09:43.

Everyone was expecting him to win. I wasn't. My goal was to knock he

:09:43.:09:48.

him off the throne. It was definitely a roller-coaster. I was

:09:48.:09:52.

not sure if I would be second or third, but first, I was not

:09:52.:10:02.
:10:02.:10:05.

expecting it. Started on the floor exercise. I was the first gymnast

:10:05.:10:13.

up. The floor went really well. started off well on the floor. I

:10:13.:10:21.

did a great routine. I had a difficult start on the pommel horse.

:10:21.:10:27.

Then I was in 24th place. I went to pommel horse, and for some reason,

:10:27.:10:32.

I was really tired. I don't know why. He made a big mistake on the

:10:32.:10:36.

pommel horse. He missed his dismount, which is a big deduction.

:10:36.:10:42.

I just did not have any more strength and they took off a lot of

:10:42.:10:47.

points. That ended up putting me down to a pretty low standing. I

:10:47.:10:53.

sat down and put the towel over my head and just went aaagh! To myself.

:10:53.:10:59.

My dad came up to me and was like, relax. Nothing happened. Trust your

:10:59.:11:09.

training. You will be great. then encounter vault, that is my

:11:09.:11:17.

make-or-break event. Unfortunately for me, that they did not quite pan

:11:17.:11:22.

out. The coach said to me, if you had landed that, there would have

:11:22.:11:29.

been a medal in it. It is one of those things, but that is sport. I

:11:29.:11:33.

remember watching Dan Purvis and thinking if he could keep it

:11:33.:11:40.

together, he had a chance at a medal. Then he messed up. I was

:11:40.:11:44.

aiming for a medal, but unfortunately, I went to pieces and

:11:44.:11:54.
:11:54.:11:58.

could not make a comeback. But gymnastics is like that. I just

:11:58.:12:05.

went on rings, did a good routine. Did a good vault. On the parallel

:12:05.:12:09.

bars, I had a different mindset. I did not know where I was in the

:12:09.:12:13.

standings and I was not watching anyone, but I just told myself to

:12:13.:12:23.

have fun and show-off. And I did it. I saw some of the other routines. I

:12:23.:12:29.

saw who was first and second in the table, of course. So I knew what I

:12:29.:12:39.
:12:39.:12:40.

had to do. I tried to make a good performance. He is one of the real

:12:40.:12:50.

class performers. In such a high- pressure situation, you know there

:12:50.:12:57.

will be competition from everyone. My goodness me. How easy to let a

:12:57.:13:02.

medal slip away. On the high bar, I did what I felt was a really good

:13:02.:13:09.

routine. I did not know where I was until I finished. Then I looked up

:13:09.:13:15.

and saw myself go up into second. I was ecstatic. For the floor routine,

:13:15.:13:19.

I knew if I made a good one, I could get a silver medal. It was an

:13:19.:13:25.

amazing feeling, because it was the Olympic Games. I knew I had done

:13:25.:13:33.

enough on the floor. A brilliant performance gives the German a

:13:33.:13:43.

silver medal! When I was up there, it felt like a dream. That was

:13:43.:13:50.

probably the happiest moment of my life. Let's see who can steal the

:13:50.:13:54.

show in Kohei Uchimura's absence. Our commentary team are poised and

:13:54.:14:03.

ready to go. The first of six apparatus for the

:14:03.:14:13.
:14:13.:14:41.

the last minute. First up, floor exercise, from Japan, Kazuhito

:14:41.:14:51.
:14:51.:15:00.

emir for this big opening tumble. Two somersaults in one series. That

:15:00.:15:08.

makes the difficult to rise. Every move is given its own difficulty

:15:08.:15:16.

rating. The best 10 moves are added together to give the difficulty

:15:16.:15:26.
:15:26.:15:27.

score. So, the name of the game is 10 difficult elements. Absolute

:15:27.:15:36.

control on the fairly basic skills like handstands. Beautiful landings,

:15:36.:15:46.
:15:46.:15:46.

making sure that the judges cannot take any points away. Very clean so

:15:46.:15:53.

far. Just a tiny hop back on the landing, but that was a pretty

:15:53.:15:57.

impressive floor routine. Not the highest difficulty, but great

:15:57.:16:04.

execution. Very clean, and that is what it is all about. Take your

:16:04.:16:14.
:16:14.:16:28.

a wonderful, clean gymnast. He is not too shabby on the floor. Very

:16:28.:16:32.

clean and difficult. We missed the double straight somersault that he

:16:32.:16:40.

started with, they will see it on replay. Not only dynamic but very

:16:40.:16:50.

strong in the lifts. The very precise. A nice half term, a simple

:16:50.:16:58.

forward combination. It is important to stamp control. A bit

:16:58.:17:08.
:17:08.:17:10.

awry on the dismount. A hop to the side. He is renowned for accurate

:17:10.:17:16.

landing. He has had a couple of dodgy ones so far. He has undercut

:17:16.:17:23.

it. Signs of nerves. He missed his start, but I am sure you will

:17:23.:17:29.

Torcross through it. He attempted to finish with a double strike, so

:17:29.:17:39.
:17:39.:17:39.

possibly this is his first tumble. Cliff two twists. That is something

:17:39.:17:44.

we did not want to miss. It is the stamina that is a problem for the

:17:44.:17:53.

gymnasts. They will have absolutely peak for the Olympics, and to get

:17:53.:17:59.

yourself back into shape within six months, five months, it is very

:17:59.:18:09.
:18:09.:18:26.

round gymnast, parallel bars as well. Fast across the floor,

:18:26.:18:36.
:18:36.:18:39.

beautifully done. No effort at all. A little bit low, but a very good

:18:39.:18:49.
:18:49.:19:25.

game. So far, this is why he is worthy of a silver medal. Superb

:19:25.:19:35.
:19:35.:19:36.

work. He just lost it a little at the end. But he has not even warmed

:19:36.:19:41.

up. He got in last thing last night, and if he can produce that, what on

:19:41.:19:48.

earth...? He looks in great shape. My concern in the last year,

:19:48.:19:57.

watching him, was that he looked so slight, his body weight, he was

:19:57.:20:02.

carrying no fat cattle, but now, he looks a bit heavier. I think that

:20:02.:20:09.

has increased his power greatly. This is fabulous tumbling.

:20:09.:20:14.

Everything looked secure. There was no scrabble to fall would walk out

:20:14.:20:21.

of the somersaults. Really strong. He is obviously very light, they

:20:21.:20:29.

can handle his body very easily. So dynamic as well. He just bounced

:20:29.:20:39.
:20:39.:20:44.

back, so that his 0.1 at least deducted. That is not a bad score.

:20:44.:20:50.

He is substantially in the lead at the moment, ahead of Yusuke Saito.

:20:50.:20:59.

Kazuhito Tanaka is in third place. Kristian Thomas, the Olympic bronze

:20:59.:21:02.

medal-winner and European team champion, such an important member

:21:02.:21:12.
:21:12.:21:22.

crowd, the first taste of Great Britain. He led the British team to

:21:22.:21:31.

the bronze medal. A super start. Then immediate rebound into the

:21:31.:21:41.
:21:41.:21:41.

roll-out. The double Arabian. He is a tall gymnast. He has to be very

:21:42.:21:45.

measured with everything. It is easy to bounce out of the floor

:21:45.:21:55.
:21:55.:22:13.

area when you are as tall as he is, and rolls out. Very precise work so

:22:13.:22:23.
:22:23.:22:24.

far. He licks his elements so well. But this is the tester, where is

:22:24.:22:32.

the stamina? It is, no doubt! He meets the floor with absolute

:22:33.:22:40.

control. Well done, Kristian Thomas. You will not remember a sixpence,

:22:40.:22:47.

but he landed on it twice, amazing, accurate. He opened and finished

:22:47.:22:52.

with total accuracy, a fabulous start to the competition. His coach

:22:52.:23:02.
:23:02.:23:15.

it, a kick out from the legs, fabulous start. He almost ambles

:23:15.:23:22.

into his tumbles, but so much under control with his landings.

:23:22.:23:27.

absolutely uses technique. Some gymnasts charge across the floor

:23:27.:23:32.

area and just use speed, but with him, it is all technical stopped a

:23:32.:23:38.

great technique. What a way to finish, a double the radiant, he

:23:38.:23:48.
:23:48.:23:51.

plonked it on to the floor. Very stylish work. What a great start.

:23:51.:24:00.

The German is in the lead at the moment. But that is a colossal

:24:00.:24:10.
:24:10.:24:22.

score for a fabulous floor exercise. very impressive young Spaniard, 20

:24:23.:24:32.
:24:33.:24:41.

years old. He has got a great sense Spaniards at the Olympic Games, and

:24:41.:24:46.

that is a lovely start. The bit deep on the landing. But it is

:24:46.:24:56.
:24:56.:24:56.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 46 seconds

:24:56.:25:41.

The judges are hot on the lumpy eighths! He was ninth all around in

:25:41.:25:48.

the Olympic Games, a young man with a great future. That was a very

:25:49.:25:58.
:25:59.:26:07.

measured performance. Very well ever seen a gymnast go cleaner to

:26:07.:26:12.

the edge off the floor. You cannot properly see it, but he was within

:26:12.:26:19.

a millimetre of the end. He did it again on one of the side passes. I

:26:19.:26:24.

think that trouble was pretty nearly round. You are the most

:26:24.:26:34.
:26:34.:26:47.

severe judge that has ever walked With just one performance to come.

:26:47.:26:54.

That performance is from Daniel Purvis. He has won this event, he

:26:54.:27:03.

won it last year. He has taken up a bronze medal on the floor in the

:27:04.:27:08.

world championships as well, that was in 2010. An amazing gymnast, a

:27:08.:27:15.

great performer. Starting with an incredibly difficult front

:27:15.:27:24.

somersault. Really speedy. Just a tiny Hopps on landing, which is not

:27:24.:27:31.

like him, he is usually very precise. He works out of that won

:27:31.:27:39.

cleanly. He is really very good at building height. When he does one

:27:39.:27:44.

of these multiple somersault runs, the first somersault is not too

:27:44.:27:50.

high, and the second one is higher, that is what is really impressive.

:27:50.:27:54.

He is really gaining strength nowadays. You can see the power in

:27:54.:28:02.

her shoulders in that handstand. A lovely style, and he is quite well

:28:02.:28:09.

known for that. Taking the momentum from the somersault to get him up.

:28:09.:28:16.

A deep breath here, he needs to concentrate, the big hands brink.

:28:16.:28:22.

He did not have quite enough in the locker to make the last tumble.

:28:22.:28:26.

Unfortunate for Daniel Purvis, but there are five events still to go,

:28:26.:28:34.

and he has an all-round mentality. We talk about thinking about the

:28:34.:28:40.

next thing it, and he has got that mentality. He is favouring the

:28:40.:28:50.

hamstring. A double somersault combination. A double pike to open.

:28:50.:29:00.

He normally has great security in his work. There are signs of nerves.

:29:00.:29:10.
:29:10.:29:33.

Thomas leads the pack in this very did not turn Louis Smith into a

:29:33.:29:37.

household name, strutting his stuff on Strictly certainly has. The

:29:37.:29:40.

three-time Olympic medallist had a fantastic run and introduce

:29:40.:29:50.
:29:50.:29:59.

Just swing like there is nobody watching. The come on. Keep your

:29:59.:30:06.

head. Goodness me, he did not let anybody down. 2012 has been an an

:30:06.:30:10.

extraordinary year, not just for me, but the British public and the rest

:30:10.:30:15.

of the world. With the Queen's Jubilee and the Olympic Games,

:30:15.:30:19.

there was so much talk about it beforehand about whether it would

:30:19.:30:27.

work. It was such a positive ride. It was such an amazing thing. And

:30:27.:30:32.

on a personal level, having done so well at the Olympic Games in the

:30:32.:30:36.

team and individual, then going into Strictly. It has just been

:30:36.:30:42.

crazy. It has been a whirlwind. the Pall Mall final, you were so

:30:42.:30:46.

close, could not have been closer. How do you reflect on that now?

:30:46.:30:52.

There was a sense of disappointment, because the Olympic Games was

:30:52.:30:56.

fantastic for everybody in Great Britain. So many gold medals were

:30:56.:31:02.

won. But I have to look at the bigger picture. I have a single-

:31:02.:31:06.

parent mum who sacrificed so much of her time to help me. My coach

:31:06.:31:10.

sacrificed time. I have had sponsors who helped me get to where

:31:10.:31:14.

I am. So to be able to do the routine I did under that pressure,

:31:14.:31:19.

with everybody watching, it was the main reason why I was at the

:31:19.:31:23.

Olympic Games, that pommel horse routine. For it to go the way it

:31:23.:31:30.

did and for the result to happen, to even get a medal, I am just so

:31:30.:31:34.

grateful, because it could have gone the other way. I am used to

:31:34.:31:38.

doing six days a week in a gymnastics Jim, 32 hours a week,

:31:38.:31:43.

training hard. It is very different to Strictly training. There is a

:31:43.:31:47.

lot of work on my feet. I am not supporting myself on my hands,

:31:47.:31:52.

which I am used to. So my physique is changing. I am not overweight,

:31:52.:31:55.

but I am definitely picking up aches and pains that I do not

:31:55.:31:59.

normally get when training in gymnastics. You said you saw some

:31:59.:32:03.

of your team-mates this week. Have they been teasing you, saying you

:32:03.:32:08.

are getting soft? Or are they admire you? They know where their

:32:08.:32:12.

boundaries are! I think they can appreciate that I am not just doing

:32:12.:32:17.

this for myself, but also bringing awareness to the sport. British

:32:17.:32:21.

gymnastics has had a fantastic profile after the Olympic Games.

:32:21.:32:26.

They are all very supportive. I think a few are even voting for me.

:32:26.:32:33.

Do you miss gymnastics? I do miss it, yeah. Normally when I wake up,

:32:33.:32:40.

for the last 19 years of my life, it has been gymnasium orientated. I

:32:40.:32:45.

have had holidays for maybe two weeks at a time, but I have never

:32:45.:32:48.

had this long of the sport, so I look forward to get in back in the

:32:48.:32:53.

gym and getting some training done. Are you thinking about Rio? At this

:32:53.:32:58.

moment in time, we'll is too far away to think about. I am looking

:32:58.:33:02.

forward to get in back in the gym and training. And if the spark

:33:02.:33:08.

comes when we get to real, it comes. Once Strictly is finished, I

:33:08.:33:18.
:33:18.:33:40.

believe the sparkles here. -- I horse. Is it going to be your day?

:33:40.:33:50.
:33:50.:34:01.

building up a combination. This is nice work. Goodhand a placement.

:34:01.:34:08.

Quick on the triple Russian. Or was it a double Russian? Look how

:34:08.:34:16.

accurate his hands are. I'll, and he almost lost it at the end. That

:34:16.:34:24.

will be relief for Purvis. really rescued that at the end. I

:34:24.:34:28.

think that was a bit of a step up on pommel horse for him. He looked

:34:28.:34:34.

much more confident. There were a couple of new elements in there.

:34:34.:34:40.

That was really nice, clean work. You want to keep the body as

:34:40.:34:47.

straight as possible. A little flair of the arms. He looked as if

:34:47.:34:56.

he enjoyed it. Very sharp, good hand placement. What will the

:34:56.:35:05.

deduction be for the slight loss of leg form at the finish? It will be

:35:05.:35:15.
:35:15.:35:37.

three tenths, I would say. That is is not that tall, but he looks tour.

:35:37.:35:47.
:35:47.:36:14.

his legs a little. Good catch up with the hands. Smoothly into the

:36:14.:36:19.

handstand. Good performance. A tiny bit of danger in the middle, but he

:36:19.:36:25.

gritted his teeth. He is actually a very stoic performer. He was night

:36:25.:36:30.

all round at the Olympic Games, and you can see why. He is very

:36:30.:36:35.

efficient. He doesn't look like he wants to throw things away. He does

:36:35.:36:40.

not look too stressed by it all. He looks like he enjoys it. That was

:36:40.:36:50.

very quickly and well performed. For 20 years of age, he has a lot

:36:50.:36:58.

going for him. This young man has five years to capitalise. You saw

:36:59.:37:02.

the little split of the legs, but he did not let that throw his

:37:03.:37:10.

rhythm. He kept it going. He is a good technician. Good character for

:37:10.:37:20.
:37:20.:37:22.

competition. Gonzalez, 20 years old, finds himself top of the pile at

:37:23.:37:32.
:37:33.:37:44.

the moment. This is a big challenge They have got to stay flatter them

:37:44.:37:54.
:37:54.:37:55.

that. -- than that. He seems to be settled now, but that was a shorter

:37:55.:38:04.

route team from him. Yes, he's zipped through. It was as if to say,

:38:04.:38:10.

I will not subtle and less a mistake comes, but it was ragged.

:38:10.:38:14.

And it was not as difficult a routine as others. But he seems

:38:14.:38:19.

very happy to have got it over and done with. It is not one of his

:38:19.:38:27.

favourite pieces. But that was good. He carried on at great speed, but

:38:27.:38:34.

his style was not the greatest. Gymnasts should keep the body as

:38:34.:38:43.

flat as possible. Very expensive, three tenths from each of those

:38:43.:38:50.

swings, at least. I would be very surprised to see Marcel top of the

:38:50.:38:56.

pile after this. But he made that look impressive. Very quick, very

:38:56.:39:06.
:39:06.:39:20.

top three. He is in fifth at the moment, but there are still four

:39:20.:39:28.

apparatus to go. Kristian Thomas was top of the pile after the floor

:39:28.:39:38.
:39:38.:40:06.

event. He is last on the pommel He has made the two and a half

:40:06.:40:16.
:40:16.:40:16.

Russian, but he is losing the swing. He went for a big difficulty, but

:40:16.:40:20.

you could see he was struggling with the swing and almost lost

:40:20.:40:30.
:40:30.:40:30.

momentum in the middle. This is the tough bit. 30 seconds to get back

:40:30.:40:40.
:40:40.:40:43.

on. Decision time. To pick it up from where he fell off? He has

:40:43.:40:48.

tried it again, and that was not the thing to do, Kristian. Look up

:40:48.:40:58.
:40:58.:41:00.

to the heavens. You have got to do that dismount. So a wrong decision,

:41:00.:41:05.

but he has now completed the dismount with a couple of

:41:05.:41:10.

pirouettes. Unfortunate for Kristian, but it is tough and that

:41:10.:41:15.

apparatus takes no prisoners. thinking as he came up, having done

:41:15.:41:22.

so well on the floor, and therefore being last on the pommel horse, it

:41:22.:41:30.

was almost a tough call. He was really Pie King on the swing. You

:41:30.:41:36.

have to be as stretched as you can. And he went for it again. Unlike

:41:36.:41:46.
:41:46.:41:47.

Kristian to make an incorrect decision. That was an expensive

:41:47.:41:51.

episode for him, but he rescued with a good dismount. His face says

:41:51.:42:01.
:42:01.:42:01.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 46 seconds

:42:01.:42:49.

it all. A real uphill job for him strong apparatus. Olympic silver

:42:49.:42:59.
:42:59.:43:02.

medallist. The rings suit him well, because he has a light weight.

:43:02.:43:12.
:43:12.:43:12.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 46 seconds

:43:12.:43:55.

Excellent strength to weight ratio. forward, but that is the class of

:43:55.:44:02.

Marcel Nguyen. To come back from quite an indifferent pommel horse.

:44:02.:44:07.

That was really super rings work. An uncharacteristic slip on the

:44:07.:44:13.

landing. That is not usually a thing he is worried about. But he

:44:13.:44:23.
:44:23.:44:29.

is really broad-shouldered, with a like that and killed the swing into

:44:29.:44:38.

the cross position. Superbly and work. Lovely flair on the dismount.

:44:38.:44:48.
:44:48.:45:11.

That is one of my more favourite experienced. He has a light frame,

:45:11.:45:21.
:45:21.:45:32.

and it suits the shrink to weight performance of his team mate. Can

:45:32.:45:42.
:45:42.:45:47.

he do likewise? We will see. That is a very impressive start. Believe

:45:47.:45:57.
:45:57.:45:58.

it or not, that will cost him 0.1. A good upstart to leave a very

:45:58.:46:08.
:46:08.:46:11.

simple and very impressive Pike body press. Those combinations are

:46:11.:46:16.

notoriously difficult to control. He put a giant handstand on the end

:46:16.:46:26.

of them. It is quite a virtuoso performance. Full twist and the

:46:26.:46:33.

double straight, no nonsense about that. A good performance. Yes, both

:46:33.:46:37.

of the Japanese gymnasts really looking very impressive on the

:46:37.:46:44.

reins. They looked a little off the boil on the floor, but they are

:46:44.:46:50.

sharing their class on the rings. The Japanese culture is about the

:46:50.:46:57.

all-round performer. They are coming through very well. The third

:46:57.:47:03.

apparatus, they are coming to the fore. This is an apparatus that

:47:03.:47:10.

suits their physique. Like frames,... Look at that. That is

:47:10.:47:17.

beautiful swinging. You see double France quite commonly, but the

:47:17.:47:22.

double back, this is good. Interestingly, both of them have

:47:22.:47:26.

struggled a little bit on the handstand phase, which some of the

:47:26.:47:36.
:47:36.:47:59.

winner of this event last year. Here he is, the top scorer on the

pommel horse. He needs to be impressive on rinks. He starts with

:48:05.:48:12.

good strength and control. Shoulders beautifully down. He is

:48:12.:48:18.

definitely gaining strength and power. Could it lead position on

:48:18.:48:28.
:48:28.:48:40.

beautifully performed. A double bubble to finish, a double twisting

:48:40.:48:45.

double back. That is a really compact retain. Very delighted with

:48:45.:48:51.

that performance. And so he should be. That is really good work from

:48:51.:49:01.

Daniel Purvis. He was second in stuck Court last week. He is

:49:01.:49:08.

chasing the German. He performed within himself all the way through

:49:08.:49:12.

the strength and swing the parts, and he surpassed himself when he

:49:12.:49:20.

got to the dismount. He is a very good competition performer under

:49:20.:49:25.

pressure. This combination is good. He nailed the swing to handstand

:49:25.:49:34.

from it. Good control. The Double Double, plonked, well done, Daniel

:49:34.:49:44.
:49:44.:49:50.

Purvis. Look at the score. Fabian Gonzalez, if he had to pick a week

:49:50.:49:56.

gritting, this would be it. He is very slight. This is his personal

:49:56.:50:06.
:50:06.:50:19.

challenge. The leader after two. Forwards again. He cannot rely on

:50:19.:50:29.
:50:29.:50:34.

strength. That is almost a junior school. He has got some work to do

:50:34.:50:42.

on this apparatus. But his swing is superb. The Double Double, just a

:50:42.:50:46.

little skip to the side. Once he puts the strength into his

:50:47.:50:51.

conditioning regime, he will be a force to be reckoned with. That is

:50:51.:50:55.

the difference at the moment. quite a lengthy gymnast, he is

:50:55.:51:00.

quite tall, so you have got to become powerful in the shoulders to

:51:00.:51:04.

control the long body on the reins. It is quite a tough apparatus for

:51:05.:51:12.

the taller gymnast. For Kristian Thomas,... He is supposed to be in

:51:12.:51:19.

a straight line, horizontally. Not vertically! But he is a great high

:51:19.:51:25.

bar worker, and he showed it with the lovely swinging. As soon as he

:51:25.:51:33.

gains the strength and power, and picks the rings up, he will be a

:51:33.:51:43.
:51:43.:52:19.

kicks off the fourth apparatus from six for the men. He is in seventh

:52:19.:52:27.

place, going in, but it can change after this. Such a dynamic fault,

:52:27.:52:34.

you have to go for broke. It is out of seven. He was of direction right

:52:34.:52:41.

from the word go. It difficult decision. You have to marry the

:52:41.:52:47.

height and the strike. He squeezed it, overcooked it, and not a happy

:52:47.:52:56.

day. He was off line from the beginning. Yes, he came way to the

:52:56.:53:02.

side, he polled really hard. You have to be square. You have to time

:53:02.:53:12.
:53:12.:53:37.

it very accurately. As he hits the pulse rate a little. It will not be

:53:37.:53:46.

the most difficult, but he needs a good, strong vault. A double twist,

:53:46.:53:55.

and he may also go. That is just what he needed. They are not going

:53:55.:54:02.

to take an awful lot of that. coach and stepfather highly

:54:02.:54:06.

delighted. He has not had too many things to cheer about this

:54:06.:54:12.

afternoon. He will be deducted a little bit for lack of height, but

:54:12.:54:20.

nothing for other things, like legs apart. He is dead down the middle,

:54:20.:54:25.

right on the white line, no steps on landing. Look at the shape when

:54:25.:54:30.

he comes out of the twist. It is a very good fought indeed, that is a

:54:30.:54:40.
:54:40.:54:42.

big score coming up. Have a look at that school. That will give him the

:54:42.:54:46.

lead over Kristian Thomas. That is just the performance that Danell

:54:46.:54:55.

Leyva needed. I have been very impressed with this young man.

:54:55.:55:05.
:55:05.:55:23.

whipped patina. That was super. He lifted high, and he wrapped the 2

:55:23.:55:28.

1/2 twists in. He has got such elegant lines. He twists

:55:28.:55:35.

beautifully. Long, lean, and very efficient. This was grateful to end,

:55:35.:55:42.

a leisurely approach, he converted beautifully. Immaculate LED form,

:55:42.:55:46.

the two-and-a-half twists, this was beautiful Saltend from Fabian

:55:46.:55:56.
:55:56.:55:57.

Gonzalez. The platform has really aided could fall to end. If they

:55:57.:56:02.

can meet the platform with straight arms, they can rocket off.

:56:02.:56:12.
:56:12.:56:27.

impressive from the rings, but not so impressive on the pommel horse.

:56:27.:56:33.

He was in third place at the halfway stage. It is very important.

:56:33.:56:43.
:56:43.:56:53.

It needs to be a good fault, it very efficiently into the two-and-

:56:53.:57:01.

a-half. He is a very experienced performer, he is 25, it is coming

:57:01.:57:06.

good for him lately. He got a silver medal at the Olympic Games.

:57:07.:57:11.

He made sure of two-and-a-half twists. He stepped forward at the

:57:11.:57:20.

end. This is good, clean, efficient. He is pacing himself. This could

:57:20.:57:30.
:57:30.:57:30.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 46 seconds

:57:30.:58:12.

make a little difference to him. He is still up for grabs. He played a

:58:12.:58:22.
:58:22.:58:22.

little bit safer. That is from 16.2. When you play state, you have to

:58:22.:58:30.

perform perfectly. For as we saw from the German and the American,

:58:30.:58:33.

they went for slightly less a difficulty, but they worked

:58:33.:58:39.

perfectly. This was lovely, but it was an untidy landing. He made a

:58:39.:58:44.

bit of a meal of it, really. He got Super distance, he really travelled

:58:44.:58:54.

a long way. In the air, it was very nice indeed. Really tight and clean.

:58:54.:59:04.
:59:04.:59:11.

He did not print the arms out to Spanish at ahead of the Japanese.

:59:11.:59:21.
:59:21.:59:30.

Here was the leader at the halfway been there a few times. He is good

:59:30.:59:40.
:59:40.:59:43.

under pressure. Super two and a half twists, very nicely performed

:59:43.:59:48.

in did. Lovely hiked in flight. Excellent under pressure from Dan

:59:49.:59:58.

Purvis. 6.6 difficulty. He did not hold back. The characteristic shrug

:59:58.:00:07.

of his shoulders. He is quite pleased with himself. Accelerates

:00:07.:00:11.

into the board, good conversion upwards. Look at the way he

:00:11.:00:21.
:00:21.:00:21.

measured the run, punches hard from the top of the platform. That was

:00:21.:00:31.
:00:31.:00:31.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 46 seconds

:00:31.:01:22.

pedigree. Can he bring something very fresh to parallel bars?

:01:22.:01:26.

Straight up to the handstand. This is usually where the swinging

:01:26.:01:36.
:01:36.:01:53.

stuttered a bit on he has hand placement. It is all there, but it

:01:54.:02:02.

does not look as secure as we have seen it sometimes. Oh! I was going

:02:02.:02:06.

to say a nice little Pike, but then he ricocheted off on to his

:02:06.:02:16.
:02:16.:02:17.

backside. Another double pike. He laid the shoulders back to try and

:02:17.:02:21.

rotate, but there is evidence of how that guy approaches the

:02:21.:02:31.
:02:31.:02:36.

apparatus. Today it did not work, but he is such a good gymnast.

:02:36.:02:44.

Simple work. Lost with them slightly. -- lost the rhythm

:02:44.:02:54.

slightly. But he is swinging and pirouetting. Great stuff to watch

:02:54.:03:04.
:03:04.:03:04.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 46 seconds

:03:04.:04:15.

when it comes off. That score shows precision. There was never a moment

:04:15.:04:25.
:04:25.:04:25.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 46 seconds

:04:25.:06:01.

arms on all the work. Really What has impressed me with a Nguyen

:06:01.:06:05.

is that he has modified his routines. He is working at slightly

:06:05.:06:10.

below his absolute maximum, so he is able to come out and give a

:06:10.:06:14.

measured performance. He knows it is a six-piece event. You do not

:06:14.:06:18.

have to win every event, so he has cut back on difficulty so that he

:06:18.:06:24.

can give a confident performance, and that has worked for him. He is

:06:24.:06:34.
:06:34.:06:57.

very sharp on his techniques. No lead. Marcel Nguyen finds himself

:06:57.:07:07.
:07:07.:07:21.

almost a mark ahead of the Japanese four. Going into apparatus five.

:07:21.:07:31.
:07:31.:07:40.

Can he hold on? Lovely full pirouette. Very well controlled.

:07:40.:07:50.
:07:50.:07:58.

Nice, precise work. Lovely front somersault. Lovely double pike

:07:58.:08:03.

dismount. That was a very good routine. We have seen him faltered

:08:03.:08:08.

once or twice on parallel bars. That looked much more confident.

:08:08.:08:18.
:08:18.:08:26.

Brilliant under pressure. Not fazed at all. Very impressive. Goodbody

:08:26.:08:36.
:08:36.:08:42.

line. He works with accuracy. This is good work under pressure. Nguyen

:08:42.:08:52.
:08:52.:08:53.

was trailing a little. A tiny bit laboured through to the handstand,

:08:53.:09:03.
:09:03.:09:03.

but he pulled it together for the dismount. Daniel Purvis finds

:09:03.:09:09.

himself ahead of Marcel Nguyen, with one apparatus to go. What a

:09:09.:09:19.
:09:19.:09:50.

performer on high bar. -- the male labour is a great guy on high bar.

:09:50.:09:57.

He has had a wild day so far. has not been his usual, consistent

:09:57.:10:07.
:10:07.:10:17.

self. But high bar is a speciality of his. Lovely, straight arms. Oh,

:10:17.:10:23.

he kicked too late and kicked over the bar. I saw him train several of

:10:23.:10:32.

those yesterday. But still, when he releases, he throws the arms out to

:10:32.:10:42.
:10:42.:10:45.

the side with style. When the arms came back, the FA had just moved a

:10:45.:10:48.

centimetre in front of him. watched him when he was training

:10:48.:10:54.

and the one he court, he made the hip open action much earlier down

:10:54.:11:01.

the backswing. He has to pull himself together now, make sure he

:11:01.:11:10.

doesn't have any more errors. Are we getting it again? Yes, he opened

:11:10.:11:20.
:11:20.:11:28.

the hips much earlier. He is packing it all in now. Giving us a

:11:28.:11:38.

bit of a treat. Swings with excitement. Beautiful, straight

:11:38.:11:46.

line. Well, he has not had the best of days, but he is one very

:11:46.:11:56.

exciting gymnast. Even when he makes mistakes, you can still trace

:11:56.:12:05.

the class. It is obvious. What a performer he is. He has some

:12:05.:12:15.
:12:15.:12:15.

marvellous touches. Watch the arms fly out, back in. That is the

:12:15.:12:25.
:12:25.:12:44.

trademark. He has quality. Put a mark on that, and you are looking

:12:44.:12:54.
:12:54.:13:00.

at a very classy routine indeed. Now, Fabian Gonzalez from Spain.

:13:00.:13:10.
:13:10.:13:10.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 46 seconds

:13:10.:13:58.

This, without doubt, is his most style on high bar. That was really

:13:58.:14:08.
:14:08.:14:30.

great. That is his favourite and There was no interruption to the

:14:30.:14:39.

swing. Very good work. He really enjoys this high bar, you can see.

:14:39.:14:49.
:14:49.:15:12.

moment about doing a turn out of it. moment. Three big performances

:15:12.:15:22.
:15:22.:15:42.

knows he still has a job today. Third place coming in. He has got

:15:42.:15:52.
:15:52.:16:19.

to keep contact with the bar. the full twist. That was quite a

:16:19.:16:29.
:16:29.:16:44.

in the forward struggle. Measuring it, opening the hips, lifting into

:16:44.:16:50.

the double twisting, double straight this mad. That was a very

:16:50.:16:56.

controlled performance. He knows exactly what he had to do, he wants

:16:56.:17:02.

to hang on at least a third place. He opted for consistency. He played

:17:02.:17:11.

a bit safer. He has a great mental attitude. The Japanese really have

:17:11.:17:17.

a team mentality, they know they have to stay solid all the way

:17:17.:17:27.
:17:27.:18:04.

top of the swing. Very nice. The double double. With the little

:18:04.:18:14.
:18:14.:18:15.

stagger forward to. A great end to the competition for Kazuhito Tanaka.

:18:15.:18:25.
:18:25.:18:28.

With two performances to go, 89.998. To beat him, the other two have got

:18:28.:18:34.

to get into the 90s, which is truly world class. The pressure really

:18:34.:18:44.
:18:44.:19:03.

He needs to perform accurately and in a spectacular fashion. Very

:19:03.:19:11.

clean in the one arm. That went the wrong way. He put an extra turn in.

:19:11.:19:16.

He should have put it in after the full term, but he has covered it

:19:16.:19:26.
:19:26.:19:28.

very cleverly. A big release. Shuffling along the bar. A good

:19:29.:19:38.
:19:39.:19:51.

He did not hold back much there, we put all of the difficult, exciting

:19:51.:19:56.

somersaults in, and he has laid the gauntlet down, if Daniel Purvis

:19:56.:20:02.

wants to beat him, he has got to be excellent. They had to lose one of

:20:02.:20:10.

his combinations. He meant to do a full turn, he had to think fast,

:20:10.:20:17.

but the rest of it was still impressive. He swings with

:20:17.:20:24.

virtuosity, with excitement. He wanted to go forwards out of the

:20:24.:20:28.

swing, but he put in the difficult... He played that a bit

:20:28.:20:38.

safe. He was not going to let go of the bar. Bent arms on the long

:20:38.:20:44.

swing after the somersault catch. He really lifts up strongly into

:20:44.:20:51.

the double twisting dismount. He could easily have tipped forward on

:20:51.:21:01.
:21:01.:21:10.

the 90 Plus Club. 90.098. He has set the target for Daniel Purvis. A

:21:10.:21:20.
:21:20.:21:29.

bit of pressure on the young man. He has done it before. He needs to

:21:29.:21:38.

do it again. What a thrilling finish, the last man up. Can he win

:21:38.:21:43.

the Glasgow World Cup event for the second year in succession? We will

:21:43.:21:51.

find out in 40 seconds. excitement has built. Nothing but a

:21:51.:21:59.

clean routine will do. A very nice swing. That has gone the wrong way,

:21:59.:22:09.
:22:09.:22:11.

I think. Like the German, he will have lost the combination. If all

:22:11.:22:21.
:22:21.:22:51.

He really pulled something out there. He made the same combination

:22:51.:23:01.
:23:01.:23:05.

error as the German. It will be close. He does not know. He will

:23:05.:23:12.

need 14.475, something like that. It was going well, but this

:23:12.:23:18.

combination, it does bring problems. He went the wrong way. He had to

:23:18.:23:26.

swing back. Exactly as the German had to spit the combination... He

:23:26.:23:31.

was a bit ragged in some of the Pyrrha what skills, and a bit late.

:23:31.:23:40.

I hope he has done enough. It will be mighty close. The hop forward

:23:40.:23:50.

after the double double. What a job for the judges to sort that one out.

:23:50.:23:59.

It is not enough. The German has pipped him on the last apparatus.

:23:59.:24:05.

That was great, two fabulous all round gymnasts. It went to the very

:24:05.:24:15.
:24:15.:24:16.

last performance. It went to the wire. The German emerges victorious.

:24:16.:24:22.

Daniel Purvis has slipped to third place. What a shame. To be leading

:24:22.:24:26.

into the final event, finishing third, behind the German and the

:24:26.:24:36.
:24:36.:24:37.

Japanese, but it was a thrilling The crowd was absolutely deafening

:24:37.:24:43.

when you work on each bit of apparatus, could you hear them?

:24:43.:24:49.

through the competition, they were behind us 100%. It was a long

:24:49.:24:54.

competition. I was really proud of the crowd, they did a fantastic job.

:24:54.:24:59.

Another medal on home soil, a lovely way to end the year. It has

:24:59.:25:03.

been a great year, a dream come true. To finish off in Scotland

:25:03.:25:08.

with a medal, a great end to a great year. It was always come in

:25:08.:25:12.

to be tough, competing after the Olympics, building up my fitness

:25:12.:25:18.

back up. I had a month off. It was always going to be a struggle. But

:25:18.:25:23.

I am still disappointed, I wanted to compete well. It was not my day-

:25:23.:25:29.

to-day, but I will be back next year. It was quite a good

:25:29.:25:33.

competition, I did not make big mistakes. It was not the perfect

:25:33.:25:38.

competition, but really good, without big mistakes. That was my

:25:38.:25:43.

golf. Great to see Daniel Purvis coming away with a medal, but the

:25:43.:25:49.

German got the gold medal. It was really close, incredibly tight into

:25:49.:25:55.

the last apparatus. Marcel made a mistake, and Dan almost made an

:25:55.:25:59.

identical mistake. Dan has done incredible this year, it has been a

:25:59.:26:04.

really longed year, we started with the test event in January,

:26:04.:26:10.

everybody has done well. It was not Kristian Thomas' day. That is how

:26:10.:26:17.

it goes sometimes, he has had an amazing year, called at the

:26:17.:26:19.

European Championships, Proms at the Olympic Games, so it has been a

:26:19.:26:24.

long year for everybody. That was not his day to day, but he will

:26:24.:26:31.

bounce back. Everybody will get the break. Huge Games next year,

:26:31.:26:35.

starting with the European Championships. It is not that big a

:26:35.:26:40.

break, because the trials will start in February/March. It is a

:26:40.:26:45.

vital year, it is about individual apparatus, so the specialists will

:26:46.:26:51.

be looking to take their place on the rostrum. With it being the year

:26:51.:26:54.

after the Olympics, it is so important to make your place ready

:26:54.:26:59.

for the next cycle. The European Championships are in Moscow in

:26:59.:27:05.

April, and we will have full coverage of those, as well as the

:27:05.:27:09.

World Championships from Antwerp in the autumn. Before that, plenty of

:27:09.:27:19.
:27:19.:27:19.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 46 seconds

:27:19.:28:07.

I cannot wait for that. That is it from the gymnastics World Cup in

:28:07.:28:11.

Glasgow. It was great to see some of the stars of the London Games

:28:11.:28:16.

Sonali Shah presents Britain's only round of this year's World Cup series, in which the world's top artistic gymnasts compete by invitation only.

2012 Olympic Team GB stars, Kristian Thomas - a bronze medal winner in London, as well as a European team champion - and Rebecca Tunney, Team GB's youngest member and the senior British all-around champion, showcase their talent in Glasgow. Niamh Rippin, the 2012 British floor and vault champion, is also competing.

Big international names include Italy's Vanessa Ferrari and Romania's Larisa Iordache in the women's event, and Germany's Marcel Nguyen and Danell Leyva, from the United States, in the men's competition.
