Hello, and welcome to A Question Of Sport.
I think it's going to be a competitive show tonight,
looking at the teams. Let's meet them.
Joining Matt are middleweight boxer Anthony Ogogo
and European champion gymnast Becky Downie.
-CHEERING AND APPLAUSE
-Welcome to the show.
Welcome to the show. Welcome to the show.
And on Phil's team are England defender Matt Upson
and world champion sprinter CJ Ujah.
-CHEERING AND APPLAUSE
-Come on, lads! Come on, fellas!
And it's the Picture Board to start off tonight.
Matt, your team are going first.
OK, Sue, we'll start this evening
with number 12, please.
-Go on, then.
-Ooh, who's that?
-Ooh, erm, Mela... Melan... Melody.
Melanie. Melanie. Medoly.
-Oh, move on!
Oh, I know that one! Nine.
-Oh, Brett Lee.
Erm, that is...
Move on. I know that, don't I? Move on. Seven.
-Oh, erm, Naismith.
-Naismith? Six. Six!
-Erm, Nina Derwael.
-Four. Good shout!
Oh, erm, Luke...
-Oh, erm, Hal... Hey... Howham.
-Just lost time on Hunter Mahan.
And the gold medal-winning rower was Anna Watkins.
-Oh, it was!
And the tennis player - Madison Keys.
-Madison Keys. But you have scored
-Oh, my goodness!
-We could be in trouble here.
-Come on, let's do it.
Sorry, we could be in trouble.
The door is open a bit, then.
Wow. Crikey, if they're like that, it's going to stay open!
-I didn't get any of them.
Right, come on, boys. Confidence. Here we go!
-Ready to go?
-OK, Sue, number one, please.
-Oh. Oh, Westley.
-Good shout! Four.
-Wing Jong... Oh, dear!
What's his name?
-Oh! Ding Jong-wow.
No, move on. I know his name!
Five. Oh, that's a shame.
Erm... Oh, who's that?
-Yes, it is.
-Yes. Great shout. Eight.
-Bony, yes, yes! Nine.
-No, no. Oh!
-Move on. Ten.
Erm... Oh, move on! I don't know! 11.
-Oh, what's her name?!
-Marco Fu was his name! Marco Fu!
So, you meant Ding Junhui, yeah?
Ding Junhui and Marco Fu, and it came out as Ding Jong-Hoo!
-So, it was, in fact, Marco Fu.
-Yes, it was.
-And the other ones you missed out on.
-You ran out of time with Lizzy Yarnold.
-..F1 driver Max Verstappen.
And the Olympic sailor was Shirley Robertson.
-Oh, that's right!
Anyway, good start.
So, after the opening round, the teams are tied, both on seven.
It is Sports Action now,
so just try and take in as much as you can. Here we go.
Coming inside now.
Gets the pass away to Ozil.
She said in training the other day, this could be superb.
Shelley Rudman, a brilliant silver medal.
Katie Ledecky of the USA is going to obliterate her world record.
She's going to probably go 3.56. Look at this!
The world's champion becomes the Olympic champion.
Only 20 years old,
and his country's first Olympic boxing gold medallist.
Too short. Good shot. Four runs for Brendon McCullum.
Jack Sock continues to spring the surprises.
Narrow space, and Richie Gray will exploit it.
And Scotland have their score.
Now, I will ask a question and you must work out
which of these nine countries
is the right answer?
-OK? You are both playing along,
so once you've chosen your answer,
-just write it down on your tablets.
First up, it's football.
In which of these countries was Mesut Ozil scoring at the World Cup?
Look in your answers
when you're ready.
-Presumably, he scored there.
Yeah, I'm inclined to agree.
-I think we'll guess that one.
-All right, OK.
OK, let's reveal the answers.
-South Africa. And the right answer is
South Africa. Yes, well done.
-Well done. Well done.
The boxer you saw in action fought over 30 fights
in which country on the board?
Yeah? Sweet. Yeah?
Oh-ho-ho! Yeah, straight in!
OK, answers locked in? Let's reveal them.
Both gone for Germany.
Both right again! Yes. APPLAUSE
Shelley Rudman was winning Winter Olympic silver in 2006
in which country?
The last one was...
The last one was that, wasn't it?
So, that would be then, wouldn't it?
-That'd have been, erm...
-I think... I think we're here.
I don't know, but I'm just... That's a guess.
-That's a guess.
-Let's go with that.
-So, let's reveal.
-USA. Italy. Ooh, at last!
And one of you is right,
-and that's Matt.
-Well done, team. Well done.
And final question -
Darren Clarke was winning the Open Championship,
but players from which country on the board won it
in the years either side of him?
Oh, my goodness!
What year was that?
I'm not wholly sure.
-I don't know whether it's that.
-Are you in?
-Are you done?
-I'm not, I'm not...
I'm not throwing it in yet.
I've written something down...
-..but I'm not prepared to say that's my final answer yet.
Tell me the last time
that you remember an American...
How long ago did Clarke win that?
-It'll be time for the 2018 Open!
All right, then, sorry. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Go on, I'm in, I'm in.
-I'm in, I'm in. Sorry.
-Are you happy with your answer now?
-OK, let's reveal the answers.
-Once again, one of you is right.
-And I'm wrong.
Correct. Matt is right. LAUGHTER
That was the new stadium.
Matt gets the point, which means, at the end of the round -
Phil is on nine, Matt in front on 11.
This round is On The Buzzer, and everyone is in play.
On the screen, you will see a picture,
I will ask a question,
and then the picture will slowly reveal.
The quicker you buzz in, the more points you can win.
But be careful - if you buzz in and get it wrong,
-your whole team will be frozen out.
-Oh, wow. OK.
Fingers ready. Here comes your first one.
Where did this match take place? Where did this match take place?
Where's that? Where's that? Where's that?
-Oh, he's just done it.
Is the right answer! Two points. Well done.
Here's the next one. Who is this?
No. No. Who's that? This is...
-It is Nile Wilson. Well done, Becky.
Come on, boys. We need one here!
-Yes! Another one for you now.
-Have to get this one.
In which year was this taken?
-In which year was this taken?
-Oh, my goodness. No.
SHE CHUCKLES Is the right answer!
-He's a machine!
-You guys can play if you want.
Yeah, the Dream Team in Barcelona.
-Who is this?
-Right, it's a jockey.
Oh, I don't know.
-Yes, it is.
APPLAUSE Well done.
Yes, Tuffers, well done. On the board on that round.
So, now we move on to Home or Away?
And, Anthony, coming to you first. Home question or Away?
-What do you reckon?
-Yeah, Home question.
-Go Home, yeah? Stay?
-Home, please, Sue.
After beating Jarrod Fletcher for the vacant WBA middleweight title,
who made four successful defences before losing the belt in 2017?
Take your time. Take your time.
It's tough, that, because the WBA, they've separated their title
to Regular Champion and Super Champion,
and this is referring to the Regular Champion.
Erm... This is the thing - if you go Away and get it wrong, it doesn't matter.
If you go Home and get it wrong, it's embarrassing!
-All right, erm, 2017.
-Well, it will be a little bit more embarrassing
as you challenged the rest of us to join in with you.
Well, no, no. Not us. Them.
-So, Fletcher - does that ring any bells?
-Yeah. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Australian middleweight.
Who lost the belt in 2017?
I can't think who else it can be.
Yeah, it's got to be Jacobs. Got to be Danny Jacobs.
Danny Jacobs, please!
Danny Jacobs is...
-..the right answer.
-CHEERING AND APPLAUSE
-There it is.
-Course it was!
-Matt, over to you. Home or Away?
-Away, please, Sue.
-Come on. Come on, boys.
-Come on. Ooh!
Three people with the surname Scott won medals for GB at Rio.
Name the sports in which they won.
-Won medals for GB.
-Won medals for GB at Rio.
-Name the sports in which they won.
-I should know this.
-Go on. Go on, just think.
-Take your time. Take your time. Take your time.
Sort of like... Is this one kind of swimming? Swimming?
-Or something like, er...?
-Something like shooting or something?
-Definitely won in, like, sailing or something.
-Definite medals in swimming.
Could be sailing. Well, give us a...
What sort of events are there in the Olympics?
We definitely won medals in equestrian.
-Some form of equestrian, didn't we?
-Yeah, but that wasn't a Scott.
-That was Dujardin and Nick Skelton and everyone.
-So, let's go sailing, swimming...
That's a good shout. It's a good shout.
-Yeah, that's a really good shout.
Right, Sue, we've got three.
We are going to go with sailing, swimming and cycling.
Sailing is right.
Swimming is right.
-Unlucky. Good effort, though.
-What, we don't get any points?
-Two. We get two.
So, a chance to steal a point.
Phil might kick himself.
-Yeah, he might.
Because you've got Dujardin and Skelton...
-Oh, it WAS equestrian.
-Equestrian is your answer?
It isn't. But you might kick yourself cos you did mention it.
Steven Scott won a bronze in shooting,
Duncan Scott won a silver in swimming,
and Giles Scott won a gold in sailing.
So, you got two points.
So, Becky, Home or Away?
13 years after winning three Olympic gold medals in Athens,
which gymnast won her fifth European title on the beam
in her home country?
-Yeah, got this.
-Got that? Have you?
-Oh, I like the cheeky laugh there, as well!
-I don't know how to spell it.
"I'm not even going to write anything down." I like it.
-Yes, it was. Of Romania. Well done.
-CJ, Home or Away?
-It's up to you, man. It's up to you.
-What do you reckon?
-Oh, well, we need to get back in the game.
-I'm going Away.
-Ooh, go on, then!
-Going for Away?
-Are you sure?
-Yeah, I'm sure.
-Come on, then. Let's have it.
-Let's go, let's go. Let's have it.
Washington has a team in each of the Big Four leagues in America.
-Name three for a point each.
-What's the basketball? Do you know the basketball stuff?
It's definitely Redskins in the NFL, isn't it?
-That's definite. There's your one point.
Go on, that's not a bad shout. Not a bad shout.
-Put the Chiefs in.
-Yeah. You know?
-Redskins and Chiefs.
-What about Cowboys, as well?
No, that's Dallas. That's Dallas.
Chiefs and, er... Go on.
Why not try that? Here you are.
It's not, but at least we've got some answers.
-Right, OK. Ready, Sue.
Washington Redskins, Cavaliers and Chiefs.
And no surprise, one of them is right.
-Yes. The Redskins. So, over it goes.
-Is it 100%?
-I think so.
Washington Wizards. Basketball.
Yeah, Wizards are the basketball team.
Yes, you get the bonus point. Well done.
What was your other suggestion?
-Wild, is it?
-That's Minnesota Wild.
-It was the Capitals.
-Oh, course it is!
Yeah, in the ice hockey. And Nationals in baseball.
-No, I'd never have got that.
-I never had anything like that.
No. Not to worry. Up next, it's Formula 1.
On the board are nine drivers.
You must avoid the driver
that has won the most F1 races
in their career.
There's a point for each answer that you give that ISN'T that driver.
If you do pick the most successful driver,
then the other team get a bonus point.
-And, Phil, as you're trailing, you can pick first.
So let's go Andretti, Sue.
-That's one point.
Yes. Well done.
And over to Matt.
-He hasn't won the most, has he?
-No, but he can't have won the most.
-I don't think so.
Is another point, yes.
Well done. Back to you, Phil.
Nico Rosberg, Sue.
That is a point also.
-Little trickier now.
-I don't... I don't know if he'd won...
-Never really heard of him before, so...
Hill? Damon Hill.
Well done. Yes.
-Nigel Mansell, Sue.
-Is another point.
CHEERING AND APPLAUSE
-What do you reckon?
Which names have you heard of, out of those four?
Out of the top one? This one.
Right, so, we'll... Well, see, that's a good barometer.
-And that one, I'd heard of.
-That's a good barometer.
-Right, we'll avoid that.
-Are we going this one?
That is also a point.
Nelson Piquet, Sue!
That is a point again.
-So, will it be a point, or will you hand over a point?
-Take your pick.
Did they have as many races...
..in Niki's era?
Mm. Thinking outside the box.
-I like that.
-They've got 20 races now.
To win a championship, you're going to win nine or ten.
Go with what you know. I don't know.
Big man, you're the governor.
-Go for it.
-Yeah? So, we'll probably...
Are we edging towards this guy as being the most?
I think, after your expert reasoning,
-I think we are.
So, we think Fernando has the most,
and therefore we'll pick Niki.
-You're going for Niki Lauda. That is...
-..the right one.
-Yes, you get the point.
That's cos you knew him. That's cos she knew him.
Just for your information, Alonso - 32, Mansell - 31.
-It was quite tight.
-And at the end
of that round, Phil is on 17, but Matt's in front on 23.
Next up, it's an Observation Round.
For this game, it's all about balls. HE LAUGHS
Make a note of the number you see and the sports you see them in,
and I'll wish you the very best of luck.
I think you may need it. SHE CHUCKLES
MUSIC: Canned Heat by Jamiroquai
-Oh, man! I've had a meltdown.
-I've had an absolute meltdown.
-So, hold on.
-I've got the tennis sorted, I think.
So, Matt, your team are going first.
How many tennis balls...
-I wrote down!
-..did you see?
-Throughout the whole...?
-It can go on offer.
-Oh, it can?
-Oh, yes, it can!
-How many tennis balls did you see?
The wheelchair had three.
Yeah, there was one when they picked up one from the floor by her foot.
-And then Isner had three.
He had three in his hand and one on the racket. That's four.
Were there any other clips?
Roger had three.
-Rafa, at the end, headed one.
-Headed one, yeah.
-Yeah, I can't think of any more.
-Happy with that?
-Are we happy with that?
-I think we're going to go with nine, Sue.
Are you sure that's wrong?
-I think so.
-It is wrong.
-It is wrong.
-And the correct answer is...?
-I think it's 12, Sue.
-Ooh, did I miss some?
-CHEERING AND APPLAUSE
Right, that's me done cos I didn't write anything else down!
For your team, how many golf balls were there?
Any ideas? Sergio Garcia.
There was the one on the putting green at the end,
but there was one that ran in the background.
-So, two there.
-Yeah, yeah, yeah.
-Hmm, I think five.
-Go on. Go on.
-Both gone with five?
Yes, it was five. APPLAUSE
It may go downhill now, because, finally,
write down how many balls you saw in total.
-And the team that is closest will get a point.
Definitely at least 20 on the first...
That was the snooker. That's exactly what I saw.
-OK, go on.
-That's what I did.
So, tot them up.
22. So, 22 plus...
-20 plus four.
-We've got the tennis. That was 12.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, but I just wrote...
-I just literally...
-Go on, then. Go on. Tot them up, mate.
-Did you do it? What have you got?
-No, but yours looks...
-Yours looks a lot neater.
What's your tactics there, Matt? Are you just adding up?
-30, 33, 36...
-How many did you say were in the...?
-I've got 30, 32...
-When you've got your answer, if you write it on your tablet.
-Let's go that. Let's go that.
OK, let's have a look at the answers.
-58 and 61. There's not much in it.
-We might be spot-on.
One team is spot-on. AUDIENCE GASPS
-I reckon it's them.
It's Matt, yes! APPLAUSE
And at the end of that round, Phil is on 19, Matt in front on 24.
The end of the show. On the buzzer. There are 60 seconds on the clock.
It's one point if you buzz in and get it right,
but one point away if you get it wrong.
Everyone understand? Fingers at the ready. Here we go.
