Welcome to BBC Two viewers who have joined our coverage. We are a few

:00:12.:00:18.

minutes away from the last event of the heptathlon, the 800 metres. Kata

:00:19.:00:23.

Rita -- Katarina Johnson-Thompson needs the run of her career. It is

:00:24.:00:31.

possible. On BBC One we will stay here to see this race so Poldark

:00:32.:00:36.

will follow on BBC One in five minutes. Athletics will continue on

:00:37.:00:44.

BBC Two. Let's join Steve Cram. Thank you. Let's look at the full

:00:45.:00:54.

start list. She's in fifth place. Vetter has had a brilliant

:00:55.:01:00.

competition. There's not much to choose between Vetter and Schafer.

:01:01.:01:08.

Four tenths of a second for Vetter to get ahead of Schafer. K J D would

:01:09.:01:14.

have to do something nobody has ever done before. -- KJ T.

:01:15.:01:23.

These are the athletes in descending order. Look at the personal best.

:01:24.:01:46.

KJT's personal-best is 2.0 six. The fastest ever heptathlon I can find

:01:47.:01:55.

in the final was two point 05. Jess has run 2.0 seven. She would have to

:01:56.:02:03.

go to war three seconds quicker to put any pressure at all on Vetter,

:02:04.:02:09.

who is not a good 800 metres runner. Rodriguez is in fourth place. She

:02:10.:02:16.

has a personal best of 2.12. We hope Kat can run quick enough to go into

:02:17.:02:23.

fourth. Vetter and Schafer look to be too distant, but, and it's a

:02:24.:02:27.

massive but, the slimmest of chances. Vetter and Chef -- Vetter

:02:28.:02:37.

and Schafer no medal is theirs. Thiam has been supreme, the Olympic

:02:38.:02:43.

champion. Nothing spectacular from the first event. Even that hurdles

:02:44.:02:48.

yesterday wasn't her best, but she's been solid all the way through and

:02:49.:02:53.

that high jump, oh dear, how much that has cost Katarina

:02:54.:03:00.

Johnson-Thompson. The final event of the heptathlon, the 800 metres. What

:03:01.:03:09.

does a coach say? There isn't any other instruction than just run as

:03:10.:03:13.

hard as you can. To do that in the 800, you have to be sensible. It's

:03:14.:03:20.

an interesting thought. I asked Jessica to be sensible another of

:03:21.:03:25.

times and the best of 2.07 summit she ran 59 seconds for the first

:03:26.:03:37.

400! Salman-Rath has run 28.75 for the first 200. To put that into

:03:38.:03:45.

context, that's 56 at the bell, two laps of that. 1.52? I don't think

:03:46.:03:52.

they will run 1.52 so rhythm is important. She has to run a big

:03:53.:03:59.

personal-best. Win this race, Johnson-Thompson, with the crowd

:04:00.:04:02.

behind her. She can't affect what happens behind her. The others have

:04:03.:04:12.

16 or 16 seconds. -- 16 or 17 seconds. Look at Rodriguez. She has

:04:13.:04:21.

a big gap between herself, she's in fourth place, and she's committed

:04:22.:04:26.

herself massively. She's gone with it. Schafer wants to put some

:04:27.:04:30.

distance between herself and Vetter so she can get silver. Katarina

:04:31.:04:35.

Johnson-Thompson responding. Has she got anything for the last 200

:04:36.:04:42.

metres? The German is out in front. Can she raise her game? She's giving

:04:43.:04:49.

it a go. The others are way too close for her to get a medal.

:04:50.:04:55.

Salman-Rath still leading. Katarina Johnson-Thompson trying to chase her

:04:56.:05:00.

home, doing her best, giving everything. Rodriguez is fading. We

:05:01.:05:05.

look for the battle behind. Watch the clock. It's going to be about

:05:06.:05:14.

2.07. Katarina Johnson-Thompson will be close to a personal best. Here

:05:15.:05:22.

they come behind. Vetter crosses the line in about 2.19. About 12

:05:23.:05:30.

seconds. Sadly it won't be enough to affect the medals. It means Schafer

:05:31.:05:35.

will move into the silver medal position. I don't know whether or

:05:36.:05:41.

not Rodriguez has moved up... He's shaking her head. Schafer will get

:05:42.:05:49.

bronze. Thiam the gold-medallist. Not always across the line first,

:05:50.:05:55.

but another supreme competition from the Olympic champion. A case of what

:05:56.:05:59.

might have been for Katarina Johnson-Thompson. (STUDIO) she gave

:06:00.:06:07.

it everything in that 800 metres, but it was just too big a gap for

:06:08.:06:17.

her. 2.07. That's it for the athletics on BBC One, time for

:06:18.:06:20.

Poldark. The athletics is on BBC Two. Join us on BBC Two.

:06:21.:06:41.

The Olympic Stadium in the Queen Elizabeth Park as night falls and

:06:42.:06:50.

the athletics programme for Day three is drawing to a close. Two

:06:51.:06:56.

days of events for the heptathlon have come to an end. Denise and Jess

:06:57.:07:02.

are alongside me, you both know the motion that goes through when you've

:07:03.:07:07.

put so much into seven events. This is the first time you've seen a

:07:08.:07:11.

major championship since retirement where you want the one everyone is

:07:12.:07:17.

hugging! I know exactly how it feels and you're physically exhausted,

:07:18.:07:21.

mentally drained. This is such a nice moment, to share it with the

:07:22.:07:29.

girls. You've got through the two days of gruelling competition. It's

:07:30.:07:34.

an amazing feeling and 40 amp to become well champion at the age she

:07:35.:07:39.

is, it's incredible. -- and four Thiam. She's a champion. She's had

:07:40.:07:47.

an incredible two years from 11 thin the World Championships in 2015,

:07:48.:07:51.

Olympic champion a year later and now well champion. There is some

:07:52.:07:57.

great talent bursting through and it promising -- aid promises to be an

:07:58.:08:02.

exciting few years ahead. She has so much potential to come. She hasn't

:08:03.:08:11.

tapped into all her ability yet. To have Carolin Schafer come through

:08:12.:08:16.

the way she has, "Months in the last two years, it bodes well for the

:08:17.:08:17.

event. Katarina Johnson-Thompson will be

:08:18.:08:28.

reflecting on the two days. She will know exactly what she's done wrong,

:08:29.:08:33.

exactly where she could have picked up more points and exactly what

:08:34.:08:37.

she's got to do if she wants to get these seven events together. She has

:08:38.:08:41.

the talent, she has the potential to get onto the rostrum. It's

:08:42.:08:47.

incredibly frustrating. I know Kat, she's run, she'll be thinking, what

:08:48.:08:54.

is it? Whiny again? -- wide me again. People will ask what if she

:08:55.:09:01.

could have got on the rostrum. Incredible javelin. Kat has to think

:09:02.:09:10.

long and hard about her progression. Everyone is moving forward and she's

:09:11.:09:16.

just standing still a little bit. We know she's got fantastic talent, but

:09:17.:09:21.

for the high jump where would she have placed? What was her potential

:09:22.:09:26.

now we know the results? Where could she have placed? Definitely a

:09:27.:09:32.

medallist. I wouldn't say gold, but maybe bronze or silver. She has

:09:33.:09:38.

changed, she's moved from Britain to France so there's a lot of

:09:39.:09:42.

information to ingest in the last six or seven months. A lot of

:09:43.:09:47.

technical changes. She's travelling two welds at the moment. I am

:09:48.:09:52.

confident with another good winter behind her, the confidence is clear

:09:53.:09:57.

that it's improving because the second day wasn't bad. Her second

:09:58.:10:01.

day was good, but it's a tough event, even when you're successful

:10:02.:10:05.

it's tough and it can grind you down. I worry for Kat because she's

:10:06.:10:12.

had so many setbacks. She keeps coming back, but the high jump she

:10:13.:10:17.

can work on, but the throwing and some of the other areas she needs to

:10:18.:10:23.

get them right to be on the podium. It's not my School of thought that

:10:24.:10:27.

you only focus on your strengths. You need to address those

:10:28.:10:31.

weaknesses. Her javelin was much better, but the shot, the model

:10:32.:10:36.

still is in there. You have to walk in the circle and trust your

:10:37.:10:41.

technique and she is not there yet. Her best events really let her down,

:10:42.:10:49.

I think. To see her happy with 6.56, it's not like Kat and normally she'd

:10:50.:10:53.

be disappointed. These scenes are lovely. The points are in. Steve,

:10:54.:11:04.

take us through the final result. It was a busy two days for the

:11:05.:11:08.

heptathlete is culminating in that 800 metres. It didn't go smoothly

:11:09.:11:14.

for Katarina Johnson-Thompson, as we'd hoped. The high jump this time

:11:15.:11:19.

was what let her down. Here are the final results. Johnson-Thompson, if

:11:20.:11:28.

she had gone clear at 1.95 in the high jump, which she did comfortably

:11:29.:11:33.

last year, she would have been right behind Nafi Thiam chasing the gold

:11:34.:11:37.

medal. The almost 200 points she lost in the high jump cost her dear.

:11:38.:11:47.

The athlete at the top, Thiam, world champion.

:11:48.:11:52.

This is a look back at the pole vault that took place a few moments

:11:53.:12:03.

ago. Ekaterini Stefanidi, the Olympic champion. Unbeaten in 2017.

:12:04.:12:08.

She's been flawless again this evening. 4.82. She is so consistent.

:12:09.:12:16.

Not her best clearance, a fair rattle, but the bar stayed aloft.

:12:17.:12:22.

She just finds a way of winning. She is not necessarily the best on

:12:23.:12:27.

paper, but she wins time and time again because of her consistency. As

:12:28.:12:33.

it turns out, she didn't know it at the time, but that was the gold

:12:34.:12:42.

medal winning jump. Morris passed at 4.80 nine. -- 4.89. She adds another

:12:43.:12:52.

gold medal to her outstanding collection. Sandi Morris had to

:12:53.:12:56.

settle for silver in Rio and same result here. She had to go clear

:12:57.:13:03.

here at 4.89. She got a bit sideways on that. Silver for Morris.

:13:04.:13:15.

That was all a few moments ago. 4.91, the bar has been raised to.

:13:16.:13:32.

The championship record is 5.01. 4.91. Wow! That is a world leading

:13:33.:13:43.

jump and it underlines her dominance. Icing on the cake. She's

:13:44.:13:51.

already won. That's a really impressive jump. No one really

:13:52.:13:56.

doubted it. The world leading jump so far was hers at 4.80 five. Gold,

:13:57.:14:03.

on top of the world in every sense. Ekaterini Stefanidi. A failure at

:14:04.:14:17.

4.89 but then 4.91. A fist pump from her coach. Gold for Greece. It's the

:14:18.:14:23.

kind of consistency that brings medals. A hug from Sandi Morris in

:14:24.:14:30.

silver. It's all getting rather busy now.

:14:31.:14:43.

It's time for the 800 men. Three very tough semifinal is coming up.

:14:44.:14:48.

Adam Kszczot Boland, the two-time European champion. Polish 1500

:14:49.:14:53.

champion. Our 1500 champion, Elliot Giles, but he's better at 800. He

:14:54.:15:02.

will know how tough the task is with only two to qualify. Nijel Amos, one

:15:03.:15:08.

of the favourites for the gold-medal, back to the sort of form

:15:09.:15:12.

that saw him chase home David Rudisha in this stadium in 2012.

:15:13.:15:17.

Isaiah Harris of the United States. The Americans have three very good

:15:18.:15:27.

runners in the semifinals. Rotich. Ferguson Cheruiyot Rotich. Named

:15:28.:15:28.

after Alex Ferguson. Guy Learmonth, a month ago you might

:15:29.:15:48.

not think he was going to be here, because of the season he was having.

:15:49.:15:52.

He went to the British Championship, came in the top two, got the

:15:53.:16:02.

qualifying time and got through. And so did Elliott Giles. The other we

:16:03.:16:08.

haven't seen in Kevin Lopez. Top two, two fastest through to the

:16:09.:16:13.

final. Kyle Langford goes in the next one. They will want to have

:16:14.:16:25.

somebody take it up quickly with Amos in this. Ayouni has gone

:16:26.:16:31.

quickest through the first 150 metres. Amos now coached by Mark

:16:32.:16:37.

Rowland and he will want to control this. Rotich. A bit of pushing and

:16:38.:16:45.

shoving. It is slower than they wanted. It is the Kenyan Rotich in

:16:46.:16:53.

the front. It almost has to slow down. This is a difficult task for

:16:54.:16:58.

the two British athletes. You want them to get amongst them. Get as

:16:59.:17:02.

high as they can and hope the basis fast enough. The two qualifiers will

:17:03.:17:06.

be very difficult to beat. The first two and two fastest losers. 52 for

:17:07.:17:15.

the opening lap and Amos following Rotich. Giles is in a good position.

:17:16.:17:21.

Behind them Learmonth, who has been running well. Harris coming out

:17:22.:17:32.

wide. Rotich is pushing and shoving and Amos pushes out. Learmonth gets

:17:33.:17:46.

himself out. The Poll striking for home. Two Brits in fourth and fifth.

:17:47.:17:56.

The Poll is doing what he does best. He wins it. Amos second. I don't

:17:57.:18:13.

think Learmonth obviously technically has still got an

:18:14.:18:20.

opportunity. Brendan, you know, when they run 53 or 52.95, this guy puts

:18:21.:18:30.

himself in the right place. Learmonth was fifth in the end.

:18:31.:18:35.

They're both out. Fifth and sixth. You look at your semi and you see

:18:36.:18:41.

how tough it was, they did well in the heats. I don't know what else do

:18:42.:18:51.

you do. You're right. Rotich there Amos on the outside of him. Amos is

:18:52.:19:02.

running into the outer lane. Amos is a real

:19:03.:19:23.

talent. The two British runners are doing well. Moving into fifth and

:19:24.:19:29.

sixth. But the pace wasn't fast enough.

:19:30.:19:42.

I would be surprised if any other than the top two will qualify.

:19:43.:19:59.

Here are the times. Rotich will have an anxious wait. Kszczot and Amos

:20:00.:20:30.

safely through. The time of 1. 46. 49 for Rotich looks vulnerable. Tom

:20:31.:20:37.

Walsh of New Zealand is having a good competition here. Here is a

:20:38.:20:42.

look back to what he did in the third round. He is in the lead with

:20:43.:20:51.

21.64. Used to work 30 hours a week as a body builder. That was a slight

:20:52.:21:02.

improvement. The Americans at the moment, Kovacs and Crouser sitting

:21:03.:21:12.

behind the Kiwi. Times it perfectly. Really good example of rotational

:21:13.:21:18.

shot put technique there from Tom Walsh. He is only 1.85 tall. Very

:21:19.:21:32.

fast, very powerful. And this is Kovacs's response in that round

:21:33.:21:39.

three. Another big effort from him. Suffered with a groin injury all

:21:40.:21:45.

year, the raivening world champion -- reigning world champion. He is

:21:46.:21:50.

down on what he can do. Much quicker, more athletic in many ways.

:21:51.:21:56.

But it is down on Walsh's throw. He is in the silver medal position at

:21:57.:22:03.

the moment. That was a throw of 21.66. Very close for the medals.

:22:04.:22:05.

Three throws remaining. This is the second semi-final. And

:22:06.:22:20.

Kupers does not start. That is to the advantage of others. Kupers

:22:21.:22:29.

would have been challenging. The others have a greater chance to go

:22:30.:22:33.

through as one of the automatic qualifiers. Kyle Langford waits for

:22:34.:22:42.

his introduction. He knows he rode his luck to come through. Can he

:22:43.:22:46.

find something, and get himself closer to the mix with a couple of

:22:47.:22:50.

hundred metres to go? He is going to find something special to go

:22:51.:22:55.

through. But he has given himself a chance.

:22:56.:23:10.

The Americans have three runners through. What a good run from

:23:11.:23:25.

Kszczot. Lewandowski has also been a great strength for Polish middle

:23:26.:23:34.

distance running. Windle third at the US Championships and with the

:23:35.:23:41.

pedigree to move through here. Brandon McBride, the Canadian

:23:42.:23:42.

champion was second in Monaco. Korir, no David Rudisha. But this

:23:43.:23:56.

man for Kenya, what a talent he is. Gakeme of Burundi. Alzofairi, the

:23:57.:24:21.

new Asian champion. And then Kyle Langford waits for the noise of

:24:22.:24:34.

60,000. This track brought his personal best in the Diamond League

:24:35.:24:40.

meeting last month and he will need something beyond that go through. To

:24:41.:24:43.

give himself a chance and get himself close. Not rely on a kick

:24:44.:24:49.

finish. Which would have served him well in years past as a junior. But

:24:50.:24:55.

this a far bigger stage. The second semi-final in the men's 800 metres.

:24:56.:25:05.

Korir, the 22-year-old talent can afford to sit at the back and let

:25:06.:25:10.

the others watch. Just seven going. Kupers is missing. Two places and

:25:11.:25:15.

two fastest losers and there is a chance to be a fastest loser, it

:25:16.:25:22.

wasn't a fast first semi-final. A new stage for Langford. He has also

:25:23.:25:26.

got the biggest support he will ever get. Now the key to this race is to

:25:27.:25:33.

keep going at this sort of pace. They know 1. 46 is a time all they

:25:34.:25:40.

can run faster than. There is some talent around Langford. He looks

:25:41.:25:46.

good. We saw Kszczot steal this one and his team mate Lewandowski

:25:47.:25:50.

getting ready. This is an important part of race for Kyle. He has got to

:25:51.:25:55.

stick to his task. He has some rare talent around him. He has to hold it

:25:56.:26:02.

there and let's hope he can do that. The crowd try and lift him. Kyle

:26:03.:26:13.

Langford digging in. But Lewandowski coming past him. He is trying to get

:26:14.:26:18.

back, but ahead of them a few paces ahead McBride and Korir. Two to go

:26:19.:26:25.

through and the rest looking for fastest losers placer. Korir is

:26:26.:26:32.

starting to struggle a bit. His head is bobbing as Lewandowski hunts him

:26:33.:26:39.

down. Korir is in trouble. Lewandowski chasing and Kyle

:26:40.:26:42.

Langford gets second place and goes through to the World Championship

:26:43.:26:48.

final! He has done it. He has run it. What happened to Korir? That is

:26:49.:26:53.

not a concern for Kyle Langford. Because he has judged so many races

:26:54.:26:57.

in the past perhaps not so wisely. But that one was judged perfectly

:26:58.:27:03.

and Kyle Langford's record is a place in the final. Well, a truly

:27:04.:27:11.

deserved final spot. The men's 800 metres, one of Britain's favourite

:27:12.:27:15.

events and it is great to know we will be represented in the final. I

:27:16.:27:19.

don't like the finals going out without British athletes. I wouldn't

:27:20.:27:24.

have liked the men's 800 without a British athlete. When he was

:27:25.:27:28.

introduced there was a roar. But there was such a roar in the home

:27:29.:27:33.

straight. It wasn't for McBride, who has run famously. Korir, we expected

:27:34.:27:40.

so much from him and in the finishing straight he is propelled

:27:41.:27:45.

by the fact he is in the straight and chasing down Lewandowski and

:27:46.:27:50.

Korir. He has been a junior winner and this is the best race he has run

:27:51.:27:54.

in his life. Second place in the semi-final and we are looking at

:27:55.:28:00.

some athletes ahead of him who should have been ahead of him. But

:28:01.:28:04.

there was a switch and another gear for Kyle Langford and a performance,

:28:05.:28:08.

I'm delighted to see the young man, 21 years of age, and that roar, he

:28:09.:28:12.

will never hear the like of that again. This was a fantastic

:28:13.:28:18.

performance. Great finishing speed. Holding his form, holding his style

:28:19.:28:23.

and he made 60,000 people very, very happy. A great performance by the

:28:24.:28:28.

young man. A controlled performance in the finishing straight. Korir,

:28:29.:28:34.

who promised such a lot, had nothing left in that finishing drive.

:28:35.:28:38.

McBride was comfortable. Langford into the time. Well done, Kyle.

:28:39.:28:45.

Brilliant. He said he was going to run his heart out and he did that

:28:46.:28:51.

and he will go through to the final. Brendan saying brilliant, I think we

:28:52.:28:55.

all echo that. Describe that last hundred metres for you. Well, I feel

:28:56.:29:06.

a bit shattered, I was thinking stay down, good contention, see what p

:29:07.:29:13.

happens. I was feeling good. But I got a bit cramped up again. With the

:29:14.:29:19.

group. And... Got to the last hundred I felt good and me and John

:29:20.:29:23.

it was before, we were doing a drill with cones and it was remember the

:29:24.:29:27.

drills, keep your knees up and I did it. I brushed up on the the mistakes

:29:28.:29:33.

yesterday and showed I'm still learning. I had a bad run yesterday.

:29:34.:29:40.

Better today. What about the realise that yourself a World Championship

:29:41.:29:44.

finalist in London? It is my goal to get into this final. From the start

:29:45.:29:48.

of season. It has been rocky. Burr I'm here now and -- but I'm here

:29:49.:29:55.

now. Well done. Thank you. What a run and Kyle Langford will go

:29:56.:30:00.

through to the final. Brandon McBride ran an impressive race. It

:30:01.:30:09.

is not all over for Korir. He might be in the final, because he is one

:30:10.:30:11.

of two fastest losers as it stands. Just a reflection on that

:30:12.:30:25.

heptathlon. This is Belgian's first gold medal in the World

:30:26.:30:29.

Championships. It's taken a long time, they've had some great

:30:30.:30:35.

athletes, but Nafi Thiam wins their first gold medal. Katarina

:30:36.:30:38.

Johnson-Thompson in fifth place and cheese chat -- chatting to fill.

:30:39.:30:43.

Fifth place in the world is a tremendous thing normally. But with

:30:44.:30:48.

the talent you've got and the kind of athlete you are and the kind of

:30:49.:30:52.

high jump you could have achieved, it's what might have been. It always

:30:53.:30:57.

seems to be that way with me. I've got a lot of talent and I feel like

:30:58.:31:01.

one of these days it will happen for me. I knew it was always going to be

:31:02.:31:08.

difficult bouncing back. I feel like I've done a good job trying to find

:31:09.:31:13.

myself and now I feel a bit defeatist. I've tried to change my

:31:14.:31:18.

attitude and I feel like I came back and showed that even though I had a

:31:19.:31:23.

difficult time in the second event I'm a fighter. You had a stellar 200

:31:24.:31:27.

metres and then released wrong second day. Maybe long jump you

:31:28.:31:32.

could have found more, but generally a really good second day. The first

:31:33.:31:37.

time I've ever thrown over 40 in the javelin three times in a row. 800, I

:31:38.:31:44.

haven't had a time like that since Moscow in 2013 so I'm happy with

:31:45.:31:48.

that. The long jump is solid but I know I'm better than that. Denise

:31:49.:31:53.

Lewis talking about the big change you made going from Britain to front

:31:54.:31:59.

and taking in that information, technical changes. Not only the

:32:00.:32:02.

mental attitude but the technical side as well, getting it right is

:32:03.:32:07.

gay. It's been stripped down, my mental attitude. Bas macro getting

:32:08.:32:17.

it right is key. London 2017I wanted it to come together, but I feel

:32:18.:32:23.

positive for the future. We appreciate you talking to us. All

:32:24.:32:27.

the best. I hope she can take something from

:32:28.:32:35.

this. One or two shocks already in the 800 metres. Kyle Langford into

:32:36.:32:41.

the final is the best shot. This has Donavan Brazier, one of my favourite

:32:42.:32:45.

athletes to watch at the moment. Kipyegon Bett, the world junior jab

:32:46.:32:57.

before. Bosse will be a danger. Aman not in the best of form. Andre is a

:32:58.:33:05.

good runner. He was fourth in the world junior Championships in 2014.

:33:06.:33:14.

This guy broke the United States junior record which belonged to the

:33:15.:33:19.

great Jim Ryan. He's been under 1.44 this year. A really nice looking

:33:20.:33:26.

runner. Mohamed Aman, world champion in Moscow in 2013. World Indoor

:33:27.:33:33.

Championships on two occasions as well. Michal Rozmys.

:33:34.:33:42.

Let's have a look at the introduction for peer Ambrose Boss.

:33:43.:33:55.

A bit of a character. Watch this. -- Pierre-Ambroise Bosse. That's his

:33:56.:33:58.

own tribute, that's nice. Here we go. This is the last of the

:33:59.:34:16.

semifinals. Two fastest losers. 1:45.90 three. One of the preevent

:34:17.:34:23.

favourites for tenure, will he go out? It will depend on the pace they

:34:24.:34:28.

set. None of these are natural frontrunners. Bosse will want to sit

:34:29.:34:34.

there. Bett has gone to the front. It's what happens from here. If they

:34:35.:34:40.

go to slow from the next 300 metres, the fast time will go and they have

:34:41.:34:46.

slowed. 24 seconds and then they slowed. The last heat is an

:34:47.:34:51.

advantage because you know what to do. They are capable of 1.45. Four

:34:52.:35:00.

could qualify from here. Bosse on the outside. A genie and hasn't

:35:01.:35:07.

automatically qualified in the men's 800 metres yet and that's a

:35:08.:35:10.

surprise. -- a Kenyan. I'm a bit worried for brazier. Bosse

:35:11.:35:25.

is in good form after some injury problems. Have they got enough to

:35:26.:35:30.

kick? Where is brazier going? Looking in trouble. He's such a

:35:31.:35:38.

talent. Bett kicks from the fund. Aman finds something. It's all about

:35:39.:35:44.

the clock. Donavan Brazier with a terrible run. Bosse may have done

:35:45.:35:55.

enough. We may have all four. We'll just watch the clock. Kipyegon Bett

:35:56.:36:06.

may have just made sure that his two team-mates, Ferguson and Emanuel

:36:07.:36:09.

career have not made it through to the final by going quickly.

:36:10.:36:13.

Lewandowski will be hanging onto the next time. Bosse and Andre, third

:36:14.:36:19.

and fourth here, we'll go through to the final. That's a shock. Brazier

:36:20.:36:29.

has gone. Cheruiyot has gone. Correa has gone. It's opened up. It has

:36:30.:36:35.

opened up. Some athletes you expected to be on the rostrum aren't

:36:36.:36:41.

even in the final. Bett is the only Kenyan in the final. He wasn't going

:36:42.:36:48.

to be beaten. Aman of Ethiopian has been struggling with his form, with

:36:49.:36:54.

everything. Bosse keeping to the task. The Brazilian athlete coming

:36:55.:37:00.

through as well. Brazier out of it. Bett looks good and strong. Aman

:37:01.:37:06.

always looks under pressure. Bosse has done well to get back. Andre

:37:07.:37:11.

from Brazil has come through. The good news is there's one Kenyan in

:37:12.:37:14.

the final, there's always a Kenyan in the final of the men's 800

:37:15.:37:21.

metres! And a Brit in the final. We can look forward to the men's 800

:37:22.:37:26.

metres. Bosse and Andre, fastest qualifiers. That's the event leader

:37:27.:37:37.

in the shot put final, Tom Walsh. Just three throws remaining in the

:37:38.:37:44.

final round. Stipe Zunic of Croatia is guaranteed a bronze medal. Can he

:37:45.:37:52.

improve? Kovacs is ahead of him. It's not going to threaten. I think

:37:53.:37:57.

he might have fouled. He looks pleased with that. The Croatian is

:37:58.:38:05.

the national record-holder from earlier this year. A former world

:38:06.:38:11.

junior kick box champion so he can do what he likes! Nobody will stop

:38:12.:38:18.

him. He moved to athletics in 2008. He tried javelin and then shot put.

:38:19.:38:27.

Zoo Nick, bronze medal. Slightly surprisingly. Crouser probably the

:38:28.:38:34.

biggest upset so far. He's in sixth place. His competition is over. His

:38:35.:38:41.

best of the evening was 21.20. Last chance to challenge the lead of Tom

:38:42.:38:46.

Walsh for Joe Kovacs. Massive! But it's a red flag. He doesn't like it.

:38:47.:39:01.

He's not happy. The American reigning champion. We need to see

:39:02.:39:08.

this. I'm sure the man with the red flag is right. It's just an

:39:09.:39:12.

emotional response. He hit the top of the stock board. Not in the

:39:13.:39:18.

recovery but during the throw. That's as close as it gets. Over 22

:39:19.:39:26.

metres. Joe Kovacs has to settle for silver. What a dramatic end to the

:39:27.:39:30.

competition. He's really not happy, but it was a foul. I wouldn't like

:39:31.:39:37.

to tell him! Shall I pop down and have a word? Here is the champion of

:39:38.:39:44.

the world. Bronze medal last year at the Olympics. A brilliant series. He

:39:45.:39:54.

left his best until last as well. What an excellent finish.

:39:55.:40:04.

Congratulations from Kovacs. What a victory that is. A surprise victory.

:40:05.:40:20.

22.03. Bronze last year. Gold ahead of two highly fancied Americans.

:40:21.:40:23.

America have been so dominant in this event in the past. Joe Kovacs,

:40:24.:40:31.

Reese Hoffa, Adam Nelson, CJ Hunter. A long list of American world

:40:32.:40:36.

champions. But not good enough today. Tom Walsh of New Zealand

:40:37.:40:40.

finishing off with his best of the evening. A gold medal. Kovacs, a

:40:41.:40:52.

controversial end. He had to settle for silver. I didn't think he would

:40:53.:40:58.

accept it at one point. It was a long effort, 21.66. Nice to see a

:40:59.:41:09.

New Zealander, a member of the Commonwealth, winning a gold medal.

:41:10.:41:13.

Commonwealth Games in Australia next so he won't have far to travel.

:41:14.:41:24.

Well, great gold medal for New Zealand. Where is the gold medal

:41:25.:41:32.

going in this 800 metres? This was the result of the last semifinal.

:41:33.:41:36.

Donavan Brazier, I'm told his shoelaces were undone all the way

:41:37.:41:40.

through. That was a surprising performance from the talented

:41:41.:41:51.

American. It means that Britain's Kyle Langford, 21 years old, has

:41:52.:41:57.

made it through to the final. Amos is the favourite, but who knows what

:41:58.:42:01.

might happen. (STUDIO) Kyle Langford's parents run

:42:02.:42:06.

a Chipi. If you go in tomorrow, you might get an extra large portion of

:42:07.:42:14.

chips with your fish! This music signals that it's time to get out of

:42:15.:42:20.

here. At 9:50pm, the fastest woman in the world will be crowned. Let's

:42:21.:42:27.

have a look at the eight contenders after the three semifinals.

:42:28.:42:43.

Barry Jose Ta Lou, 10.87. -- marry Jose Ta Lou.

:42:44.:42:59.

As expected, Thompson easing back. What about Sam Cross?

:43:00.:43:13.

Elaine Thompson of Jamaica is the outstanding candidate. Those trying

:43:14.:43:41.

to beat her are two athletes from Trinidad and Tobago and two from the

:43:42.:43:46.

Ivory Coast. Dafne Schippers of Europe holding up the European flag.

:43:47.:43:54.

It's interesting how the global swing in sprinting is happening. Who

:43:55.:44:00.

can beat Elaine Thompson? Her effortless style, Michael, and the

:44:01.:44:03.

way she's cruised through the heats and semifinals she looks unbeatable.

:44:04.:44:10.

Looks impressive. Marie-Josee Ta Lou has looked very good this year.

:44:11.:44:14.

She's been very consistent. She will be quick out of the blocks. She's in

:44:15.:44:19.

lame four. Elaine Thompson has most of the big names, Tori Bowie being

:44:20.:44:27.

the biggest, to her right. We could see a situation like Justin Gatlin

:44:28.:44:29.

last night where the surprise comes from the far side of the track. Tori

:44:30.:44:33.

Bowie is running great and she will have something to say. Elaine

:44:34.:44:39.

Thompson, it's her race to lose and she executes pretty well. I haven't

:44:40.:44:44.

seen her put a foot wrong in these championships. She does what is

:44:45.:44:50.

expected. She has that very jovial, relaxed mindset and emotional state

:44:51.:44:53.

before she gets on the blocks and then it's all business.

:44:54.:45:02.

It is Jamaican independence day and I think Thomas is head

:45:03.:45:17.

and shoulders over everyone. I think she could give a good race. It is

:45:18.:45:26.

the big walk on. Are you a fan of the showbiz entrance. I do like

:45:27.:45:32.

watching them. But I don't know how much I like doing them. Baptiste

:45:33.:45:37.

giving it some. She is enjoying that. A lovely smile and she is

:45:38.:45:50.

milking that. Tori Bowie. She's gone. I'm just so nervous when I

:45:51.:45:59.

come out. I don't want to smile. No smile from her!

:46:00.:46:12.

Ahye always likes some show business. Santos of Brazil. She has

:46:13.:46:21.

had a great Championships. A huge personal best. We will have to watch

:46:22.:46:29.

for her as well. They just want to get to the start line. They want to

:46:30.:46:36.

check their blocks and get into the zone. What can this girl do, she has

:46:37.:46:42.

an electric start. Can she hold her form. I think she can. She held it

:46:43.:46:49.

at the end. But it will be difficult against this woman, she will be

:46:50.:46:56.

coming. So many contrasting styles and ways to run the event. She does

:46:57.:47:03.

it the best in terms of style and two contrasting style, Ta Lou and

:47:04.:47:08.

Schippers. And Schippers, the way she has run through the

:47:09.:47:12.

championship, Michael. She Schippers has been laboured and has not been

:47:13.:47:16.

sharp. Maybe she has got race sharp leading into the final. We will see.

:47:17.:47:21.

She is out of blocks, Ta Lou to the left. Ta Lou quick and fluid and

:47:22.:47:28.

Schippers starting to labour and get tight in her shoulders and she slows

:47:29.:47:34.

down quicker than Ta Lou. But again Ta Lou, this is what we are going to

:47:35.:47:41.

see in the final. Got great drive phase, gets a great start. Much more

:47:42.:47:46.

efficient. Denise talked about whether she can hold that. She did

:47:47.:47:50.

in the semi-final. She started to open the gap. We will see if she can

:47:51.:47:55.

do it against the others in the final. Elaine Thompson who, has the

:47:56.:48:01.

most natural, beautiful, if you want to copy any style in this

:48:02.:48:04.

Championship, you would go for her wouldn't you? It is not the quickest

:48:05.:48:11.

start. But just at this point she is pulling a bit to the right of the

:48:12.:48:17.

lane. That is significant in a semi-final. Quick out of the blocks.

:48:18.:48:22.

Great drive phase. But effortless here. This is what you want. The

:48:23.:48:26.

more efficient you can get down the track, with speed, which she has,

:48:27.:48:30.

the quicker you're going to run. That is what with we see. She can do

:48:31.:48:36.

it better than anyone and it is nothing something you can

:48:37.:48:40.

necessarily coach. It is just a natural stride and natural body

:48:41.:48:43.

position that she has and technique she has and it is a great weapon for

:48:44.:48:48.

her. If you have been a Jamaican sprinter in the last decade, you're

:48:49.:48:56.

lost the spotlight to a certain Mr Usain Bolt. Perhaps if she was from

:48:57.:49:04.

another nation she would have g more recognition. With the events of last

:49:05.:49:09.

night it is time for her to shine and with no gold medal they would

:49:10.:49:13.

love it on independence day. Yes they were quiet last night. I spoke

:49:14.:49:17.

to my uncle and they were quiet. This is the moment they can make a

:49:18.:49:21.

difference. Andrew Cotter take it away. COMMENTATOR: A less familiar

:49:22.:49:28.

look to this final. Two from the Ivory Coast and two from Trinidad

:49:29.:49:32.

Tobago and only one from the United States and one from Jamaica. But it

:49:33.:49:38.

that is Jamaican in lane 6 who all will be trying to beat. Elaine

:49:39.:49:42.

Thompson starts as the clear favourite. Tori Bowie behind her in

:49:43.:49:52.

Rio. Ta Lou impressive in qualifying again. Thompson waits in two. First

:49:53.:50:07.

to be introduced is Kelly Ann Baptiste. World bronze-medallist in

:50:08.:50:15.

2011. She has served a drug ban. Back and running very quickly. And

:50:16.:50:32.

Michelle Lee Ahye there. Marie Josee Ta Lou delivers on the big stage. In

:50:33.:50:37.

Rio, a personal best in five of her six races. And what about Santos of

:50:38.:50:45.

Brazil? A huge slice off her personal best. The south American

:50:46.:50:50.

record. But where there was Usain Bolt last night, Jammeh can turns to

:50:51.:50:58.

Elaine Thompson. The Olympic champion over 100 and 200 in Rio.

:50:59.:51:03.

Not doing the 200 here. It is all on this. Tori Bowie will run the 200. A

:51:04.:51:08.

good start, she could get close to Thompson. It has not been a great

:51:09.:51:13.

day for Americans qualifying on the track. Murielle Ahoure goes in lane

:51:14.:51:24.

8. Had one very quick time this season of 10.83. And Daphne

:51:25.:51:31.

Schippers, just a shade off her very best. She will go in the 200. If she

:51:32.:51:38.

can get a quick start and get herself moving in the latter stages,

:51:39.:51:41.

she could challenge for a medal. 50,000 or so will fall silent for

:51:42.:52:03.

the final track event of this evening. Baptiste and Ahye and Ta

:52:04.:52:12.

Lou, Santos, Thompson, Bowie and Ahoure and Schippers.

:52:13.:52:28.

Thamp son with a stumble and she has gone. Ta Lou will take it. The

:52:29.:52:40.

golden boy who falls to earth, but the gold belongs to Ta Lou. What an

:52:41.:52:44.

upset and Elaine Thompson was nowhere in it. Marie Josee Ta Lou

:52:45.:52:54.

rules the world in the women's 100 metres. In fact, no, Torre Bowie has

:52:55.:53:01.

been given it on the line by 100th of a second. Ta Lou thought she had

:53:02.:53:08.

it. I thought she had it. But Tori Bowie will get to her feet and see

:53:09.:53:12.

she is the world champion over 100 metres. Elaine Thompson offers her

:53:13.:53:18.

congratulations. What happened to Thompson? And instead it is Tori

:53:19.:53:25.

Bowie who turns silver from the Olympics into gold. So many

:53:26.:53:29.

questions for Thompson. But it is Bowie's gold and we will watch the

:53:30.:53:36.

replay and wonder what happened. From the gun Ta Lou is out. We

:53:37.:53:42.

expected that. She has to hang on. Bowie has the ability to claw her

:53:43.:53:46.

back in. We saw that in the semi-finals. She had things in the

:53:47.:53:51.

bag. But Elaine Thompson could not get in the race. Huge surprise.

:53:52.:53:58.

United States takes the men's 100 and the women's 100 metres. That is

:53:59.:54:04.

a dip from Tori Bowie to take it. What a way to win it. Elaine

:54:05.:54:09.

Thompson, you think she is going to pick up. But there was a bit of a

:54:10.:54:15.

half wobble there from her. Yeah, it looked like she missed a stride,

:54:16.:54:19.

missed a step and that was part of her acceleration and she was just

:54:20.:54:25.

left completely left. What is interesting, she cruised through to

:54:26.:54:30.

a time in the semi-final that was faster than what won that title

:54:31.:54:35.

there. So she will be asking herself exactly what did go wrong. Marie

:54:36.:54:42.

Josie Ta Lou may have thought she had it. But it gold for the United

:54:43.:54:47.

States and Tori Bowie and you think of the dip from Miller in the 400 in

:54:48.:54:53.

Rio to take gold from Felix. That was as much due to tired legs. But

:54:54.:55:01.

that was a perfect dip. Gold for Bowie, silver for Ta Lou. And it was

:55:02.:55:07.

Daphne Schippers who sneaks in to take bronze. Would that have been

:55:08.:55:12.

the first three, would you have said that would be the first three? Well

:55:13.:55:18.

Elaine Thompson not in the medals and she is talking to Phil. A great

:55:19.:55:24.

surprise for us, what about you? I'm feeling great. I mean, I have to

:55:25.:55:31.

give the three girls a lot of credit. I tried to ex-cute. I

:55:32.:55:41.

planned it too. But I'm healthy. Was there anything in particular that

:55:42.:55:46.

didn't go right for you? Well I tried to get a start. The first run,

:55:47.:55:51.

I got a start, but I don't know what happened. I will have the look back

:55:52.:55:56.

and watch. I had a good race. In terms of quality of field, you know,

:55:57.:56:01.

you run with these girls on the Diamond League circuit and you beat

:56:02.:56:06.

them all the time. So... Can you quite put it into context? Well as I

:56:07.:56:13.

said, it was a strong field I have competed with these girls all

:56:14.:56:19.

season. I have to give Tori and Ta Lou credit. Thank you for talking to

:56:20.:56:26.

us. You're welcome. She is remaining very sanguine about it. But that was

:56:27.:56:32.

everyone saying who can beat Elaine Thompson. Just there, she falls

:56:33.:56:37.

back. She seemed to lose a stride. It is whether when she was extending

:56:38.:56:42.

one bit and one bit went shorter. But whatever happened, it completely

:56:43.:56:48.

confused us all. Let's see if there is any specific. She gets out well.

:56:49.:56:53.

You don't expect her to fly out of the block. Just something gives to

:56:54.:57:02.

Elaine and stops her. Ta Lou is driving hard. Bowie is running hard

:57:03.:57:07.

to the line. Knowing she has that opportunity. The camera goes to Ta

:57:08.:57:17.

Lou, she thinks she has got it. But by 100th of a second. How close that

:57:18.:57:25.

is. But the gold goes to the United States. Ta Lou almost celebrating

:57:26.:57:29.

and not dipping for the line. That cost her. Silver for Ta Lou, which

:57:30.:57:39.

she still celebrated. A great bronze for Schippers.

:57:40.:57:49.

STUDIO: Tori turning silver into gold in another dramatic 100-metre

:57:50.:57:59.

final. Two nights running, Michael Johnson, a Jamaican has been

:58:00.:58:03.

overturned by an athlete by the United States. That was a fantastic

:58:04.:58:07.

race to watch. Beside the fact of who is winning the races and the

:58:08.:58:13.

personalities and all of that, this is fantastic to see. This is what

:58:14.:58:19.

people should want to see with athletics, competition, there is

:58:20.:58:22.

nothing better and nothing gets people on their feet like a race and

:58:23.:58:28.

a finish like this where you don't know who is going to win. Tori Bowie

:58:29.:58:35.

a great race. Kalou, we said she would be in it. She is going to

:58:36.:58:40.

regret she didn't have it a bit of a better lean and an ability to get

:58:41.:58:45.

across that line before Bowie. But fantastic race. I think that Elaine

:58:46.:58:52.

Thomson, she held her drive phase a long time. And then when she

:58:53.:58:57.

realised that, she had to come out of it quick, as opposed to being

:58:58.:59:01.

patient and when you bring your head up, it throws all of that forward

:59:02.:59:08.

momentum back and we saw her stop making momentum and making a gain on

:59:09.:59:11.

the field and going back. I think she will be able to see that as she

:59:12.:59:14.

said, just not sure what happened. But she will look at the race and

:59:15.:59:18.

will be able to see what happened when she reviews it and will know

:59:19.:59:23.

that was a mistake. We will look back and see if there is that

:59:24.:59:29.

defining moment. There did seem to be a recognition almost in her face

:59:30.:59:37.

that happened. But it is the heptathlon medal ceremony. Jessica

:59:38.:59:40.

Ennis-Hill has been around this and Denise. Many times. Two days of

:59:41.:59:45.

hard, hard graft and work and it is great they get their medals tonight.

:59:46.:59:51.

Steve Cram? Yes there is nobody happier that Anouk vetter, a new

:59:52.:00:00.

national record for the Netherlands. A gutsy 800 at the end. She didn't

:00:01.:00:07.

get a personal best in that. She was passed by Carolin Schafer. What a

:00:08.:00:11.

developing athlete she is. What a year she has had. Not as many points

:00:12.:00:17.

as she scored before. But solid all the way through. A good 800 metres

:00:18.:00:25.

to finish. A good javelin. Never really challenging the Olympic

:00:26.:00:39.

champion. Nowhere near 7000 points this year pitch she didn't need to

:00:40.:00:44.

be. Belgium's first ever world title. Nafi Thiam. 6784 points. What

:00:45.:00:59.

a talent she is. Her high jump, 1.95, not as high as she achieved in

:01:00.:01:05.

Rio last year, but didn't need to. She was able to stroll the 800

:01:06.:01:11.

little bit. For the first time in the World Championships, the

:01:12.:01:12.

national anthem of Belgium. You get the feeling we're going to

:01:13.:02:11.

hear that jaunty little tune a few times over the next few years

:02:12.:02:15.

because she is still developing, still improving. She didn't need to

:02:16.:02:20.

be at her absolute best that these World Championships. A word again

:02:21.:02:24.

about Katarina Johnson-Thompson, surely her time will come one day.

:02:25.:02:32.

There was a medal there. 6636 was a great performance from there to in

:02:33.:02:39.

bronze but it was within reach for Johnson-Thompson. Nafi Thiam adding

:02:40.:02:42.

to her Olympic gold by becoming world champion.

:02:43.:02:48.

(STUDIO) thank you, Steve. Jessica Ennis-Hill is with me. We always say

:02:49.:02:54.

it when we sit up here and watch the last event, there is real

:02:55.:03:01.

camaraderie, this sisterhood in the heptathlon where you guys have to be

:03:02.:03:04.

fierce rivals for two days, but we know what you've been through. It is

:03:05.:03:10.

a unique experience and that's something I miss. You come together

:03:11.:03:14.

and celebrate what you've achieved over the two days. There's genuine

:03:15.:03:18.

respect for each other. To see those three girls on the podium, how hard

:03:19.:03:24.

they've worked this year, particularly Thiam, Olympic champion

:03:25.:03:27.

last year and coming back and backing it up this year and becoming

:03:28.:03:35.

world champion isn't easy. We hope Rodriguez and Johnson-Thompson

:03:36.:03:37.

pushing her, how much can she dominate? Have they got an

:03:38.:03:46.

incentive? I think they will push and continue to improve. I don't see

:03:47.:03:52.

anyone beating her at the moment, it she's got so much more to come and

:03:53.:03:58.

she's so young. I see her dominating for a few years. Katarina

:03:59.:04:01.

Johnson-Thompson spoke to fill afterwards and she was quite

:04:02.:04:04.

philosophical and quite pleased with the fact she had managed to in her

:04:05.:04:09.

head put to bed the disappointment of the high jump and get on with it.

:04:10.:04:13.

What advice would you give her? What does she need to do? Her interview

:04:14.:04:20.

was great and she was taking the positives. She's determined athlete.

:04:21.:04:24.

She will go away and work hard and she will hopefully come stronger. I

:04:25.:04:30.

would say, take what you've taken from these championships, like every

:04:31.:04:34.

Championships, to learn from it and to continue working in France, which

:04:35.:04:39.

is a new experience for her. It can take one or two years to make the

:04:40.:04:44.

change. She's got to trust in what she's doing and come back and

:04:45.:04:49.

believe she can perform and get on the podium. You've watched her from

:04:50.:04:53.

a very different perspective. Have you seen a growth and an increasing

:04:54.:04:59.

maturity from where you've watched here? It's a very different

:05:00.:05:03.

viewpoint. I was competing alongside her and I didn't see much detail

:05:04.:05:06.

like you do when you're sitting here. I definitely see a difference

:05:07.:05:15.

in her. She's disappointed, but you can see she's taking the positives.

:05:16.:05:20.

She's not being defeatist or thought, this is it, I've not jumped

:05:21.:05:24.

the 905I'm used to jumping, I'm going to call it a day. She's

:05:25.:05:32.

carried on fighting. Do you see the difference, Michael? Not so much.

:05:33.:05:42.

Not as much as I would like to see. I'd like to see a bit more. Let's go

:05:43.:05:49.

back to the 100 metres. We can have some analysis to look in particular

:05:50.:05:55.

at Elaine Thompson. I don't know if we should be completely shocked. She

:05:56.:06:02.

put down a 10.71 this year so she was the favourite. Tori Bowie and Ta

:06:03.:06:07.

Lou are obviously great competitors and will challenge. I think she held

:06:08.:06:15.

the drive phase to long. Each athlete is driving out of the

:06:16.:06:19.

blocks. You will notice that Tori Bowie is starting to come up, but

:06:20.:06:24.

Elaine Thompson is still down. She realises she's held it to long. She

:06:25.:06:33.

jerked her head up and all the momentum goes backwards. Now she's

:06:34.:06:37.

trying to catch up and the pressure is on. Like we saw with Usain Bolt

:06:38.:06:43.

last night, now you're under pressure and that nice, relaxed,

:06:44.:06:47.

easy form we typically see she's struggling to get back into it.

:06:48.:06:53.

Against this field and with the sort of gap that Ta Lou and Chloe already

:06:54.:06:59.

had, it was impossible to catch up. How pleased I you've Tori Bowie?

:07:00.:07:04.

She's been working very hard, she was close last year and she's a

:07:05.:07:09.

fantastic athlete over 100 and 200 and this was her time. She too good

:07:10.:07:14.

vantage of the opportunity and ran a season 's best when it counted.

:07:15.:07:19.

That's the difference between Bowie and Thompson. Elaine not even close

:07:20.:07:24.

to her season 's best and Tori Bowie running a season 's best. Let's see

:07:25.:07:29.

what that has done to the medal table. I think you'll be quite

:07:30.:07:34.

pleased, I know you're not parochial, but it's looking good for

:07:35.:07:37.

the United States of America already.

:07:38.:07:48.

Tonight was a bit as appointing for Great Britain in terms of potential

:07:49.:07:56.

medal targets. -- a bit disappointing. You would have had

:07:57.:08:01.

hopes for Holly Bradshaw, Thomson Johnson -- Johnson-Thompson. I think

:08:02.:08:10.

this could have been a really great night and unfortunate to see how

:08:11.:08:15.

Holly performed in the final. She could have got a bronze medal. Kat

:08:16.:08:21.

could have got a bronze medal. But it's Championships. With athletics,

:08:22.:08:26.

it's the process. You train for however long, all those hours and

:08:27.:08:30.

those months, and it's these one-off moments we have and if it doesn't

:08:31.:08:33.

come together, it doesn't come together and it's not happened for

:08:34.:08:38.

us. We've loved having you here and seeing you tonight to pick up your

:08:39.:08:43.

medal from day goo. What are you up to in the next month? I'm going to

:08:44.:08:51.

kick back and relax! You're welcome back on the sofa any time you like.

:08:52.:08:57.

We've loved having Jess here. It's been great having you here. Think of

:08:58.:09:00.

us while you're kicking back! You'll be watching! I'll be watching. Thank

:09:01.:09:08.

you. I think we should head outside and find out what's being discussed.

:09:09.:09:19.

Lots to discuss and I want to thank Jess for being part of the coverage

:09:20.:09:24.

and giving me tips for having children. Chaos was the word she

:09:25.:09:29.

gave me so thanks for that. Interesting day. Denise and Colin

:09:30.:09:34.

with me. Up and down day for the British athletes, unexpected results

:09:35.:09:39.

and lost to discuss. We have our troop of supporters watching us on

:09:40.:09:46.

the way out from the stadium. Either they really like ask or they just

:09:47.:09:50.

don't want to go to work tomorrow. Either way it's lovely to have them.

:09:51.:09:54.

Let's talk about British athletes and a little bit of disappointment.

:09:55.:09:59.

We've seen Nafi Thiam take a world title, truly deserved, but Katarina

:10:00.:10:05.

Johnson-Thompson should have been on one of our boards. She ended up in

:10:06.:10:10.

fifth. Where would you like to start with today? The long jump for me was

:10:11.:10:19.

a solid job. We know she can jump much further than she produced

:10:20.:10:24.

today. But it was tired legs. That issue of two fouls from the last

:10:25.:10:31.

World Championships. It was about getting a safe one in. You see her

:10:32.:10:36.

reaction. Please, please, please let it be valid and it was. Nice to see

:10:37.:10:43.

her trying to push that positivity. Nice to see the fighting spirit

:10:44.:10:46.

because that's what she needed to display after such a disappointing

:10:47.:10:54.

first. She said afterwards that she was really happy to throw over 40

:10:55.:11:01.

metres in the javelin. She said she was really trying to change her

:11:02.:11:05.

attitude. It's difficult for her after injuries and disappointments

:11:06.:11:09.

at major events. It's the first time I saw her smile so much Gerry

:11:10.:11:14.

McGarvey addition which was nice to see. Perhaps that's a starting

:11:15.:11:18.

point. It could be a breakthrough in the way she feels about her

:11:19.:11:21.

performance. She needs to get her mind right. It's seven events and

:11:22.:11:27.

not one event and she is gelling them better. I'm hoping she's

:11:28.:11:31.

finishing it with the right frame of mind. It may not be a medal, but if

:11:32.:11:37.

the mind is coming together, it's a good start. It's the best starting

:11:38.:11:40.

place. It doesn't matter what talent you have, you have to get physical

:11:41.:11:47.

and mental in harmony. She's improving. Her coach said to her, I

:11:48.:11:52.

want you to be free through the heptathlon. I think she has

:11:53.:11:56.

displayed that despite the disappointment. She got involved

:11:57.:12:00.

with the girls, this is always the lovely part of the heptathlon. She's

:12:01.:12:06.

got a little rice smile. I know inside she'll be bitterly

:12:07.:12:11.

disappointed. -- wry smile. She should be disappointed because we

:12:12.:12:14.

want her to move on. It's not always easy to go to a new country, new

:12:15.:12:19.

coaching, she's changed so much. For her to compete the way she did and

:12:20.:12:23.

end up with a bit of a smile is a solid start. We were hoping she

:12:24.:12:29.

might deliver for many a year. It doesn't just come like that and

:12:30.:12:34.

hopefully she will come good in the end. Somebody full of consistency,

:12:35.:12:38.

delivering time after time, let's talk about Nafi Thiam. So young, so

:12:39.:12:45.

astute and so good. So good and so confident. I always wondered how she

:12:46.:12:50.

would cope with the pressure and the expectation. She is now the poster

:12:51.:12:55.

girl of Belgium. This was probably not a vintage hurdles race for her,

:12:56.:12:59.

but it was solid and that was all she needed to do in the first event.

:13:00.:13:06.

High jump, always guaranteed success for her because she has competed in

:13:07.:13:11.

single in this event. She delivered. 1.95. As we were watching the high

:13:12.:13:19.

jump, the commentators were talking about her taking on the heights.

:13:20.:13:23.

Maybe that might affect her physically. If you are on a positive

:13:24.:13:29.

role, it takes the momentum through for the other offence. Absolutely,

:13:30.:13:35.

she displayed another good shot put. There are no weaknesses. That's what

:13:36.:13:39.

you want from the champion. A Habitat light that can aways keep it

:13:40.:13:46.

together. -- a heptathlete. Her 200 and hurdles speeds are coming on.

:13:47.:13:53.

You do forget how young she is. She's doing all right. More than all

:13:54.:14:02.

right. Bags of talent. What about the progress in just two years.

:14:03.:14:07.

2015, 11 thin the World Championships. Olympic gold and

:14:08.:14:12.

world gold in two years. We'd all like that but we haven't got that

:14:13.:14:18.

talent. The three of us, I haven't got that talent! She's already hit

:14:19.:14:24.

7000 points. She could really dominate for a long time.

:14:25.:14:29.

People forget she was the European bronze-medallist and we have been

:14:30.:14:37.

watching her for a while. It is not having those weaknesses. A big

:14:38.:14:41.

50-metre throw. That kind of talent and she is just starting. She is

:14:42.:14:45.

still learning. We have got many years of watching that Nafi Thiam.

:14:46.:14:54.

This was the last event, 800 metres. She had already done it. She run an

:14:55.:15:00.

eight the way I would. She takes her time. It must be a pleasure to be

:15:01.:15:05.

running the 800 thinking, I won't be that far behind and the title is

:15:06.:15:12.

mine. Well, Catharina Johnson Thompson did everything she could to

:15:13.:15:17.

stay in contention. Fifth wasn't too bad. The disappointment was easy to

:15:18.:15:24.

see. But Nafi Thiam was the world champion. Congratulate wakeses to

:15:25.:15:31.

her - congratulations to her. And Denise can put a second face on our

:15:32.:15:40.

pretty thin gold medal board. It got these guys going, Denise doesn't

:15:41.:15:46.

have to do much to get them going. Yesterday she showed us more than we

:15:47.:15:50.

all thought. And they have come back. And pole vault and again

:15:51.:15:59.

someone who we hoped might doing something special in Holly Bradshaw.

:16:00.:16:04.

You come into the wormed Championships and she -- into the

:16:05.:16:13.

World Championships and she had been making some strides. This was a

:16:14.:16:19.

crucial final jump and we touched on the physicality of it. In the past

:16:20.:16:23.

she has failed at the crucial moment. Here she did a good

:16:24.:16:28.

clearance and I can see her thinking, why didn't I do that the

:16:29.:16:32.

jump before? It was such a clean take. The jumps were going to count

:16:33.:16:42.

her out. We will see. It was 4.75 she went for. That was telling in

:16:43.:16:46.

the end. It is a height she should be able to do in her sleep. She is

:16:47.:16:51.

more than capable of jumping this height and she was so close. Those

:16:52.:16:59.

early failures at 4.65 cost her a medal and it is the decisions you

:17:00.:17:03.

make in split moments that can take you out of the medals. But she will

:17:04.:17:06.

learn from this. There is more to come from her. As it happened, Holly

:17:07.:17:13.

was inconsolable, because it was that clearance at 4.65. On count

:17:14.:17:21.

back, had she cleared it earlier she would have got bronze. This was her

:17:22.:17:25.

reaction straight after knowing the result. But we were watching when

:17:26.:17:30.

she was doing the jumps, her coach and they have a certain language. He

:17:31.:17:37.

was making hand signals. The time was all counting down. We were

:17:38.:17:43.

thinking, just jump. But they have their routine. Us as watchers can

:17:44.:17:50.

get flustered with that. Ten seconds is a long time and we were watching

:17:51.:17:54.

the clock and she was checking to make sure it was the right time to

:17:55.:17:59.

move. In the end she would have made the call. She is the athlete. She is

:18:00.:18:04.

going to make that call. I see a lot of her training in Cardiff. She

:18:05.:18:09.

trains in the same gym I train in. She has improved so much physically

:18:10.:18:13.

this year and her attitude has been spot on. Personally I'm a bit

:18:14.:18:19.

disappointed. But it does set her up well for being a bit more hungry and

:18:20.:18:24.

not making those mistakes again. So it is not the end for this year.

:18:25.:18:33.

Still plenty to come. Catriona Stefanidi, is the Olympic champion

:18:34.:18:40.

and showed everybody why. She has been in formidable form. Unbeaten in

:18:41.:18:45.

the Diamond League. Today, she rose to the occasion again. Jumping 4.91.

:18:46.:18:53.

A huge jump. With all the pressure. All the expectation. It was nice to

:18:54.:18:57.

see it. I was around some of the Greeks, they were going ballistic

:18:58.:19:02.

when they saw her going over. It is great to see good athletics, when

:19:03.:19:06.

sports people are doing well. She is at the top of her game and

:19:07.:19:11.

delivering. This is why I love athletics, because you know you

:19:12.:19:14.

cannot predict which country is going to win, you have got a whole

:19:15.:19:19.

host of different countries getting and vying for medals. It is an

:19:20.:19:26.

international event. Congratulations to Catriona Stefanidi. Colin, it is

:19:27.:19:33.

your moment. He is going to try and do what Denise did. Stefanidi on the

:19:34.:19:38.

gold medal podium if you wouldn't mind! There is more! We like that.

:19:39.:19:47.

I'm not the one to call it. But I think Colin won that one. We have

:19:48.:19:52.

got three gold-medallist on our podium. Before we move on, shall we

:19:53.:19:59.

hear from Holly Bradshaw. Oh, we haven't got her any more. She has

:20:00.:20:04.

gone. But she was very disappointed. There was so much going on today.

:20:05.:20:10.

And there was one competition that is hotting up, the men's 400 metres

:20:11.:20:14.

is one to watch. Kerwin mustn't be fazed by Kerley.

:20:15.:20:44.

Kerley beginning to make his move. Gardiner putting pressure on Allen.

:20:45.:20:53.

Kerley and gardener. Look at the style as he fires down the home

:20:54.:20:58.

straight. Allen coming through. Only two to go through automatically. The

:20:59.:21:03.

Americans being run out of it. Gardiner and Allen and Kerley will

:21:04.:21:08.

have to hope for the top. He has gone hard in the semi-final.

:21:09.:21:21.

LaShawn merit outside. Who redrew the heats have given us a nice one.

:21:22.:21:33.

There is challengers. Van Niekirk has started well. Gordon in the red

:21:34.:21:41.

has gone quickly through 200. Smith going well on the the inside. Hudson

:21:42.:21:51.

Smith is right in the mix. He is past van Niekirk. Can he keep that

:21:52.:21:58.

going. Haroun finishing quickly. Van Niekirk wins. Hudson just loses out

:21:59.:22:13.

to Haroun. He has the speed and great 200 metres speed. Robinson

:22:14.:22:20.

started quickly, the USA athlete in lane 7. A big gap appearing. It may

:22:21.:22:32.

well be the action is in the outside lane. Roberts will try and react.

:22:33.:22:45.

Makwala continues to go away. And that lovely action of his holding it

:22:46.:22:49.

together. Makwala has time to look around. 44.30. Roberts third. 43.89,

:22:50.:23:06.

a new national record. . Allen with a personal best. Maybe those four

:23:07.:23:11.

with Gardiner, I don't know. I won't say. Van Niekirk is the favourite.

:23:12.:23:17.

But it will be a brilliant race. Everybody here is looking forward to

:23:18.:23:24.

the 400 metres final on Tuesday. It will be a hot ticket, of course van

:23:25.:23:29.

Niekirk is the man to beat, but he won't have it all his own way? No,

:23:30.:23:36.

remember, he doesn't have a day off. He has the 200 metres, but Makwala

:23:37.:23:41.

is doing the 200. So they're battling for the double. Who will

:23:42.:23:49.

win. Will bit from the Bahamas? Gutting for Matt Hudson Smith, who,

:23:50.:23:56.

one place oud, out, or he would have been in the final. Before you joined

:23:57.:24:06.

us, we talked of women's 100 metres and another shock, another Jamaican

:24:07.:24:10.

we were expecting to win. Still trying to work out what happened.

:24:11.:24:14.

She was the favourite and I have never seen her run like this. We

:24:15.:24:21.

have to question is something wrong. But a great victory from Ta Lou.

:24:22.:24:25.

Look at that reaction. But this was the winner in the end. What... It

:24:26.:24:32.

was a perfect dip from Tori Bowie. If there was an great timing of a

:24:33.:24:36.

dip that was it. She will have to recover from that to run the 200.

:24:37.:24:41.

Sometimes when you pitch like that, you can knock yourself out. There is

:24:42.:24:47.

a bit of strachs on the should -- scratches on the shoulder as well.

:24:48.:24:53.

But she doesn't care. Well done on a wonderful performance. A gold medal.

:24:54.:24:57.

What is it like to be world champion? Thank you so much. I mean

:24:58.:25:04.

it is a wonderful feeling like... I'm so happy and... You know I feel

:25:05.:25:09.

like the hard work has finally paid off. I couldn't be more happy. The

:25:10.:25:15.

night is perfect. It is like it is still trying to sink in, seep in

:25:16.:25:21.

maybe? Yes, I'm sure once I leave the track I will go, am I really the

:25:22.:25:26.

world champion. It hasn't sunk in. But I'm so grateful and thankful and

:25:27.:25:32.

tonight is one of best nights of my life. What a dip as well! What a

:25:33.:25:40.

night, most of things I have won have been with with a dip. So now

:25:41.:25:46.

the dip's the night. Are you, you are in one piece. You have had some

:25:47.:25:52.

treatment and you're OK. I haven't had treatment, I'm a bit sore, but

:25:53.:25:57.

nothing major, just bruises. We want you to celebrate pain-free. That

:25:58.:26:01.

won't happen, but I will be fine tomorrow. Enjoy it. Thank you. She

:26:02.:26:09.

went from exhausted to disbelief to hysterical to feeling the pain,

:26:10.:26:13.

Denise, but she is holding the stars and stripes proudly. It was a

:26:14.:26:17.

surprise win, but you have got to deliver on the day. It was a

:26:18.:26:23.

surprise. It was close. But Bowie was the bridesmaid last year at the

:26:24.:26:28.

Olympics, golden girl tonight. Well done to her. Next an event close to

:26:29.:26:42.

Colin's heart, the 110 hurdles. Harris got left. Darien leading. And

:26:43.:26:52.

Shubenkov coming back into it. Darien holds on to second behind the

:26:53.:27:04.

Olympic champion. Left a bit and Allen going through. Pozzi hits the

:27:05.:27:09.

front. Ove it is so close. He has been run out of it I think of

:27:10.:27:18.

automatic qualifying and only 13.28. Four to the line just about together

:27:19.:27:22.

and Pozzi was leading the way with a barrier to go. But he may have been

:27:23.:27:33.

edged out of that. A good start by Baji. He is so pure over the

:27:34.:27:38.

barriers. Baji, in the middle, running well. And it is Baji taking

:27:39.:27:48.

it. A look across. Not as impressive from Merritt as it was in the first

:27:49.:27:57.

round. Tomorrow's final, McLeod will start as favourite. Shubenkov is

:27:58.:28:03.

going through as one of the fastest losers.

:28:04.:28:14.

Colin, before the Championships, the Jamaicans would have had probably

:28:15.:28:21.

lists of guaranteed gold-medallist, all sprinters, two haven't

:28:22.:28:27.

delivered. Omagh McLeod has more pressure on him now? Yes he is the

:28:28.:28:36.

No 1 sprinter. So he is looking better technically and much more Sol

:28:37.:28:41.

Sid and consistent. -- solid and consistent. So much disappointment

:28:42.:28:45.

for Andrew Pozzi, who in his semi-final was that close from

:28:46.:28:49.

getting his place and leading before he clipped a hurdle. He was just

:28:50.:28:55.

that, it was just that ninth hurdle. He hit it with his lead and trail

:28:56.:29:00.

leg and he probably lost 400th of a second and he is out of final. And

:29:01.:29:07.

unfortunately for Andrew, another British disappointment. But so much

:29:08.:29:12.

to look forward to on day four. They're also hanging out. Have you

:29:13.:29:17.

all had a good day? CHEERING AND APPLAUSE. If they say so ewe have to

:29:18.:29:23.

take it as read. Join us again tomorrow.

:29:24.:29:29.
