Hello and welcome to A Question Of Sport.
But which team will be victorious tonight?
Joining Matt this evening are
British athletics star Perri Shakes-Drayton
and England fast bowler Steve Harmison.
Happy with my team. Very happy with my team.
And on Phil's team are England and Lions hooker Jamie George
and Wimbledon wheelchair tennis champion Gordon Reid.
The first round is the Picture Board.
-Matt, your team are up first.
And we will start the clock when you hit the first number.
We'll start with number four, please, Sue.
-Oh, that is Tiam, Tame?
-No, not Thiem.
Teem, Tam... Don't know, move on. Two.
-Five. Don't worry, Perri, it's coming.
-There it is.
-Yes, it is!
-Oh, come on! In there!
Who was the tennis player there?
APPLAUSE DROWNS SPEECH
You only missed the tennis player.
It was Grigor Dimitrov.
Dimitrov, the good-looking fellow. Hate him.
But very well done. Great start. 11 points scored.
Well done. Well done, Harmi.
Don't worry about that, team. We can beat that.
-We just need a full house.
Ready to go, Sue. Number one, please, Sue.
-Retallick, yes. Ten.
Any good? No? Quickly.
-Was it Armistead?
-Yes, it is.
-Bron. LeBron James.
GB... Hoing, Wang, Dwong...
-No, he's British, he's British.
-Move on, move on. 12.
-Sharp, Lynsey Sharp.
We made ten! Good work!
Yeah, you got it. It was Lynsey. Lynsey Sharp, we were looking for.
You almost had it. And Luol Deng.
-Oh, Luol Deng.
-Good work, boys.
-But well done
to both teams. At the end of the round...
We'll take that. We'll absolutely take that.
It is Sport Action now and just make a note of as much as you can.
He's done it!
It is big! Oh, yes!
The Olympic silver medallist.
Scott with a cross. Good turn by Carter...
Well, she opens the scoring tonight in the ninth minute!
Great Britain have done it in the most spectacular style!
Andy Murray unbeaten.
Danny again. This is why he's been picked to start for England.
The crowds are about to cheer now
because Ben Ainslie wins his fourth Olympic gold.
He is the greatest sailing Olympian in the history of the games.
Now, I will ask a question and then you have to work out
which of these nine countries is the right answer.
You are both playing along so, once you've chosen your answer,
-if you write it down on your tablets, OK.
-So, here's your first question and it's on rugby union.
England were on their way to winning their 13th Grand Slam.
Which country from the board are second
on the all-time list of Grand Slam wins?
When you're ready, write it down.
So, have you locked in your answers? No, Tuffers is still writing.
He'll be doing a smiley face or something.
OK, let's see what you've gone for.
-Great minds. Wait for it.
-And you are correct.
-You are both right. Well done.
We'll have that, we'll have that.
Ben Ainslie was winning his fourth Olympic gold in London.
From which country was the silver medallist that Ben famously beat?
Oh, he wanted to fight him, didn't he?
Oh, where was he from? Here you are, boys.
-I think it was that or that.
-I think it was that.
-He was angry, he was angry.
-He was angry.
-He was angry.
You don't want to sail with me when I'm angry.
Yes, that's what he said.
Was it that one or that one?
-Oh, what are you choosing between?
-Denmark or Netherlands.
-Are you locked in?
-OK. Let's see the results.
-No, it was Denmark.
Which is the right answer?
It's Jonas Hogh-Christensen
Andy Murray was guiding great Britain to victory
in the 2015 Davis Cup.
Which country won it the following year?
Which one shall we go for? What would you go for?
-What would you go for?
-I'd go for that one.
-Would you? No, I'm going with the team.
I'll go with the team, I'll go with the team.
-Are we right there?
OK, have you locked in your answers both of you? Reveal.
The correct answer is
Argentina. Well done.
And finally, Phillips Idowu was winning Olympic triple jump silver,
but in which of the countries was he competing?
Go for it, go for it, go for it!
Yeah? Happy days. Boom.
-I'm locked and in.
-You're locked and in. Are you in and locked?
OK, let's have a look at the answers.
Ah, very good.
So, you have both gone with China
and the answer is China, so well done to both teams.
And at the end of that round...
Now it is time to see how much you are prepared to risk.
I'll ask a question that has multiple answers.
You'll get a point for each correct one.
However, if you get one wrong,
-you will lose all the points you've built up.
So, will you know when to freeze? That's the question.
So, Phil, your team are going first.
Thank you. LAUGHTER
And your question is on tennis.
Name five non-Europeans who have won
a men's Grand Slam singles title since 2000.
-So we've got Hewitt, del Potro.
-Hewitt, del Potro.
Think of countries. Think of other countries that...
-An American? Philippoussis?
-When did he win it?
Give us your banker. Go for one point.
Go Lleyton Hewitt?
-Lleyton Hewitt is on the list, yes. Well done.
-Right, jolly good.
So, that is one point. Are you going to gamble for two?
Juan Martin del Potro is also on the list, yes.
Are you going to move on?
I have to ask you each one because you could lose your two points.
-You're definitely going on?
-Confident with Roddick? Yes.
-Yeah, I'm pretty confident.
-Yeah, confident with Roddick?
-Yeah, all happy. Roddick, Sue.
Yes, I'm happy too, yes. It is Andy Roddick. Number three.
Are you going to risk it? If you're not sure, you could lose all three.
-Anyone since McEnroe?
-No, that's too old.
Steady on. LAUGHTER
-Shall we stick?
-Stay in the game?
Sue, we're going to freeze.
Three points is yours, so well done.
Well done, boys.
There were four you could have had.
And the other two, you'll kick yourself.
Andre Agassi and Pete Sampras.
He only just crept in there but, still, you got three points.
We'll take that. We'll take that.
Your team are next, and your question is on Commonwealth Games.
Since 1990, name five countries
that have won two or more medals in the men's 100 metres
at the Commonwealth Games?
Commonwealth. You're thinking
-Linford there, aren't you, surely?
-Linford and Darren Campbell, got to be.
-Jamaica's got to be in, surely. Happy with Jamaica?
-Thank you very much.
-So, one point. Are you going on?
-I think so.
-Of course you are.
-So, that's two points.
-Are you going to risk three?
-Yeah, Trinidad and Tobago?
-Yes, yes. Yes, him.
-I can see his face.
-Kim Collins was St Kitts?
Oh, come on. He won the Olympics.
-OK. Go on, do it. Canada.
Er, but not Donovan Bailey.
Oh, he's done again! He's done it again!
He is Canadian but he didn't win a Commonwealth medal.
But Bruny Surin and Pierre Browne did.
-Oh, yes, they were on the list.
-So jammy, so jammy!
-So, you're on three.
-That's a lot to lose, that is. That's a lot to lose.
-Leave it, just leave it. Leave it.
-We're going to...
And, er... But we would have gone with St Kitts.
-What would his name have been?
He did win a gold and he won nothing else,
so you would have lost all the points if you'd gone with St Kitts.
Yeah, the only person he did know,
the only person you did know would have lost you the points!
But the other ones you could have gone for,
Namibia - Frankie Fredericks.
Trinidad and Tobago
and Nigeria were the other ones.
Nigeria. But you made the right decision.
And at the end of the round...
APPLAUSE DROWNS SPEECH
Now, for the guests, it's a choice of Home or Away
-and, Perri, coming to you first. A home question?
Who, in London, won her first World Championship gold medals
with victory in the 400 metres and the 400 metres relay?
-I know who it is but I can't...
-I know the face.
-Well, we'll get it.
-I can't describe her face!
-Yes, we're going to get it!
-I know her surname begins with an F.
-But I don't know...
-I don't know her name.
-Well, we'll find it out.
Cos you can't have that many letters.
-Open your mind.
-Yeah, it's Phyllis.
-Dylis. It's Dylis.
-Phyllis Ferguson or something.
That's a great running name!
Great running name - Phyllis Francis. No?
-That's a good name though, isn't it?
-I don't want to say anything.
You've got to say it.
-Sue, I'm going to say it.
-Go on, then. Go on.
I'm going to say Phyllis Francis, but...
Just as well you did. It's right!
LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE
The very first name you said, "Francis," and you went, "No."
And I thought, "Oh, no." Well done, Perri.
-You got the point, that's important.
-How are they leading?
They actually don't know any of the answers.
-Jamie, coming to you. Home or Away?
In April this year, who became only the second forward
to score 50 Premiership tries
a month before his club won the title?
And the only bloke who scored a lot was Thomas Waldrom.
-He played for Leicester before that.
-Yeah, OK? Number eight, isn't he?
-Number eight, yeah.
-The Tank, isn't he?
-The Tank, yeah.
-Go on, then, go on, then.
Yes, it is, with the Exeter Chiefs. Well done.
Harmi, home? Home, please, Sue.
New Zealand's all-time top ten wicket takers in Test cricket
feature three current bowlers.
Tim Southee and Trent Boult are two. Who is the other one?
-It's got to be him.
-Is he still playing Test cricket?
Yeah, I'm not sure if he's just retired.
-He's the only one I can think of.
Is it Jeetan Patel?
No, it isn't. Who did you think?
I thought Patel, who plays for Warwickshire,
-who's now come back to play for New Zealand.
-New Zealand, yeah.
No, it is Neil Wagner.
-I didn't think he'd have enough wickets to be in the top ten.
-Tough one there.
-Gordon, over to you. Home or Away?
-Home, to draw level.
-Go home, yeah.
Who, having won gold in Athens, Beijing and London,
won a medal at a fourth successive Paralympics,
by winning bronze in the men's wheelchair doubles in Rio?
Well, it's 50-50, cos I'm pretty sure we beat them in the semis.
Lovely! Carry on. So, there's two, cos it's doubles.
I'm going to go with Shingo Kunieda.
Yes, went with the right one. Well done, you get the point.
Well done. Level, level.
Now, in this round, you will be combining the surnames
of sports stars to form something from one of these categories, OK.
So, Matt, your team can have first pick.
Which category would you like to choose?
-Pick a category, please, Perri.
-Go for it.
-So, the surnames of the sports stars form an attraction.
-It is an attraction you can visit.
-How many have you got there?
-Do you know any of them?
And then something, something, something, Haye.
And do you think that's just a plural of the same person
or that they are identical twins,
doing exactly the same pose at exactly the same time?
It is a plural.
It's a plural, OK. Now, do I know that cyclist?
Emma. Her name's Emma. Emma...
Oh! Oh! Oh-oh-oh!
-Have you got it?
-They've got it over there.
-It's so easy!
-We're thinking too hard.
-It's so easy when you know the answer!
-It's one of those.
No, no. Haye...
-Blackpool, Blackpool, pool.
Emma Poole! Emily Poole! Emily Poole!
-That's her name! Emily Poole!
I love you!
It is, it's Emily Poole. Emma Poole? Emily Poole.
It's Poole anyway. It is Poole.
What is it? Black... Blackpool... Come on, come on.
I think everybody in this room knows what it is!
LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE
Oh, that hurt so much!
Yes, it's actually Emma Pooley.
-Pooley, Emma Pooley.
And then Lu, Mann, Haye and Shun.
But two well-earned points there.
-Pick a category.
-Song lyric, please.
-Song lyric. OK.
Right. Mane to start with.
Oh, that's Khan.
-# Mane, Khan... #
-That's Khan, I'm sure.
No, Zaheer Khan, his name is, yeah. So, that's Mane, Khan...
-Oh, yes, I've got it! We've got it, we got it!
-No, I don't know the...
-Who's the golfer?
-Sing it again.
# Mane, Khan... #
Please tell me everyone's got this.
-Right, so, I know exactly how you felt.
-Who's the golfer?
Oh, it's Seve, is it?
Go on, sing us that song. Sing us that song.
And who's the...? Is that Justin Bieber?
Money. Money Khan... Oh!
Is that Davis Love?
Mane, money, Khan, Bye... That must be Mee.
Oh, it's Mee. And that's Davis Love.
-"Money can't buy me love".
-Yeah, Ben Mee. Yeah, absolutely.
APPLAUSE DROWNS SPEECH

And, at the end of that round, the teams are tied.
And, Matt, your team are up first in this round.
Who is the captain of the ship?

Oh, of course it is! Course it is. Yes, she is, yeah.
She's married to Steve Backshall.
Yeah, go for it. Go on.
Yes, yes and yes.
-Helen Glover? Let's have a look.
Yes, it is the Olympic champion. Helen Glover.
And, Phil, your team. Who is this, bouncing around?
MUSIC: Tidal Wave by Sub Focus feat Alpines
He either looked like Brad Barritt
or James Horwill, maybe, you know, the Australia captain?.
That's a great shout. Go with your instinct, mate.
-Going with James?
Let's have a look. Are you right?
-Yes, you are. Well done.
The rugby union player James Horwill.
Very well done.
This has being close all the way through
and, at the end of the round,
the teams are tied on 22.
So, it will all be decided with the final round, the Sprint Finish.
-And, Matt, you are going first.
-Right, here we go. Come on!
Are you ready? Time starts now.
-OK, you love this.
-It's not on the golf course
but it's on the practice...
Oh, I'll be running in a relay and I would do this...
-Baton. Pass the baton.
-Oh, you've taken one of those.
-No, you've just taken one.
-It's called a...
-Yeah, but an over, in an over...
Oh, he was the England manager. His name...
Oh, no, he was the England manager.
West Bromwich Albion manager as well.

Rangers play there in Scotland.
-Yes. Oh, what's this...?
-No, what am I on?
No, gymnastics, piece of equipment.
-Move on, move on, move on.
Oh, he was one.
Oh, in that, you mess it up a couple of times.
Oh, in your game...
-Good work! Good work!
-We got there, didn't we?
-I don't know.
I think you would have been better if you'd said tie-break in tennis.
-What did I say?
And the balance beam was the one that you missed out on.
But you needed five to tie.
You have scored six. You win by one point!
