Michael Johnson storming away to another gold medal. Magnificent.

:00:25.:00:33.

Carl Lewis. That is history in the making. Jessica Ennis-Hill is back

:00:34.:00:41.

on top of the world. It's massive. A new world record. Champion of the

:00:42.:00:45.

world. Use sane Bolt. -- Usain. #1 One more time for Mo Farah. Time and

:00:46.:01:03.

time again he's delivered. In front of his home crowd, in the city he

:01:04.:01:07.

knows so well, the city that he loves. The track, that set him on

:01:08.:01:15.

this brilliant journey over the last five years and Mo Farah comes to the

:01:16.:01:20.

front. Mind games of the highest quality. He says, guys, it's been

:01:21.:01:27.

good, it's been hard, it's been tough, but is this all you've got so

:01:28.:01:31.

far? Because you need to find something else. Be careful, Mo, get

:01:32.:01:35.

on to the outside. It's never been as quick as this or as hard as this.

:01:36.:01:42.

Fancy chasing this? The British best with the heart pounding beneath it.

:01:43.:01:50.

Mo Farah stretches away. He's a one-man world super-power. It's gold

:01:51.:01:51.

for Farah. Incredible! Yep, it's been raining all day, cats

:01:52.:02:12.

and dogs. I'm sure where you are too. Certainly London has not seen a

:02:13.:02:19.

day this for quite a while. These championships haven't seen rain like

:02:20.:02:23.

this. The track is sodden and so are the fans. Bring a hat, bring a

:02:24.:02:29.

change of clothes, it's going to be a long night in this rain. Of course

:02:30.:02:34.

we will update you if the schedule changes which is expected for

:02:35.:02:38.

certain events. If you have a brolly and some toppers, then you can still

:02:39.:02:44.

have a good night here. We've some great athletics in spite of this

:02:45.:02:48.

great British summer we're experiencing right now. Welcome to

:02:49.:02:55.

England, Michael Johnson! LAUGHTER We've been fooling you with these

:02:56.:02:58.

clear skies for the last week or so I was like, where am I? Now I know

:02:59.:03:04.

where I am. Now you've got your vest on. Den east, Paula, welcome this

:03:05.:03:10.

wet evening. Exciting because Mo's back in town? He is. For the 5,000

:03:11.:03:17.

metres. Should be a pretty easy night. Distance guys are used to

:03:18.:03:21.

running in the rain. We get out and on with it. He has his heat and

:03:22.:03:26.

followed by Marc Scott and Andrew Butchart. Throwing is tricky. Men's

:03:27.:03:32.

hammer qualifying and three women in the long jump qualification. There's

:03:33.:03:36.

talk of that moving to the pit that is the driest rather than having two

:03:37.:03:40.

pits on the go. That's the sensible decision. We've high hopes for all

:03:41.:03:45.

of our three British girls getting into that final. It will be tricky

:03:46.:03:48.

out there. Slippy board. Very challenging indeed. And the 200m

:03:49.:03:54.

semi-finals. Will they be bothered by these conditions? They may be

:03:55.:03:58.

bothered but everybody has to run in the same conditions. It's raining in

:03:59.:04:04.

every lane. The issue of warm-up is difficult when it's raining for

:04:05.:04:07.

sprinters. You'd prefer cold over rain but you have to get on with it

:04:08.:04:13.

like the distance runners do. Little bit of needle between the two there.

:04:14.:04:18.

Love it! Last night was all about the men's 400m final. It was billed

:04:19.:04:22.

throughout the championship and build-up that it would be one of the

:04:23.:04:31.

great events of these championships with Neikerk going for the double.

:04:32.:04:36.

But there was twists and turns because of the non-start he missed

:04:37.:04:43.

200m heats and wasn't allowed to run in that 400m final. It was one of

:04:44.:04:51.

the most eagerly anticipated events of these championships. A showdown

:04:52.:05:02.

to save our. Neirerk against one lap wonder a bottoms Juan an intent on

:05:03.:05:06.

halting any immediate Coronation. Only for a bug in the system to

:05:07.:05:12.

create a right royal mess. Tonight at 6.00pm. Athletes at the World

:05:13.:05:21.

Championships hit by norovirus. The spread of gastroent right Is at the

:05:22.:05:29.

hotel saw Makwala fall ill. I had my 200 heats. They took me to the medal

:05:30.:05:33.

room. I waited for about 30 minutes. There was nothing. Makwala was

:05:34.:05:39.

forced to withdraw from the 200m heats denying him the chapel enon

:05:40.:05:48.

Niekerk. There was still to's 200m final. He couldn't race in that

:05:49.:05:53.

because of quarantine regulations. When he was told he had the illness

:05:54.:05:58.

he tried to leave. One of my other senior members of the staff brought

:05:59.:06:04.

him back in because we have an outbreak of gastroenteritis in the

:06:05.:06:11.

hotels and it is highly infectious. The Botswana delegation insisted

:06:12.:06:17.

Makwala was ready and fit to run. Had his heart rate which was 60 and

:06:18.:06:21.

body temperatures. He's fit and very well. He's prepared to run and he's

:06:22.:06:28.

being kept away from the IAAF. He turned up at the stadium last night

:06:29.:06:33.

making a pock Errie of the quarantine restrictions and was

:06:34.:06:37.

turned away. The IAAF put forward their case as to why Makwala could

:06:38.:06:44.

not compete. My responsibility is to ensure the health care of all the

:06:45.:06:49.

athletes. It is a virulent disease. The decision was based on public

:06:50.:06:55.

health issues but it is the manner on which this decision arrived on

:06:56.:07:02.

was disturbing. His absence was eventually issued at 9.45 when he

:07:03.:07:06.

would have been preparing to take his position in the blocks. 400m

:07:07.:07:15.

final. Wade van Niekerk with the empty lane already making up the

:07:16.:07:19.

stagger. This is where van Niekerk starts to go away. Gardener trying

:07:20.:07:26.

to come through. Van Niekerk looking for the line. Van Niekerk is the

:07:27.:07:34.

world champion again. After I saw him crossing the line I was like,

:07:35.:07:39.

there's something fishy they don't want to tell us here. Usain Bolt is

:07:40.:07:44.

here. They want somebody to be the face of it. There are a lot of

:07:45.:07:49.

fingers being pointed right now. I know he's ill. So much sympathy for

:07:50.:07:53.

him. I really wish I could give him my medal. This is sports. These

:07:54.:07:57.

things happen. Each and every one of us need to go out there and fight

:07:58.:08:01.

for our opportunities. It could have been any one of us. The South

:08:02.:08:06.

African will now chase 200m gold in a bid to emulate the great Michael

:08:07.:08:11.

Johnson as champion of the double. Makwala is simply left feeling sick.

:08:12.:08:18.

I feel disappointed for this. They broke my heart. That was Isaac

:08:19.:08:27.

Makwala talking this after in into. As this story's been so incredibly

:08:28.:08:31.

unbelievable and the twists and turns in the last 24 hours, you'd

:08:32.:08:34.

expect there to be another. There is. It happened around an

:08:35.:08:39.

hour-and-a-half ago when the IAAF issued this statement:

:08:40.:09:09.

So, Isaac Makwala lives to fight another day. We'll see him on this

:09:10.:09:15.

track tonight. It just feels it's 24 hours late in terms of all the

:09:16.:09:25.

aggravation and unnecessary upset it caused the Botswana ns. If that

:09:26.:09:28.

statement had been issued this time last night, it could have stopped

:09:29.:09:36.

all that? Absolutely. If we had gotten this information yesterday

:09:37.:09:39.

with this sort of detail, then, yeah, it would have saved a lot of

:09:40.:09:43.

people a lot of anguish, frustration and confusion. I think the primary

:09:44.:09:50.

beneficiaries of that would have been Isaac Makwala who showed up

:09:51.:09:55.

here last night confused and the IAAF who've come under intense

:09:56.:09:57.

scrutiny and criticism because of the way this was handled. It also

:09:58.:10:03.

would have helped us to provide accurate information to our viewers

:10:04.:10:08.

who were wondering why Isaac Makwala wasn't in the 200m heats the other

:10:09.:10:11.

day and not here last night in the final. We would have been better

:10:12.:10:17.

prepared to inform our viewers who are relying on us to let them know

:10:18.:10:21.

what's going on. The delegations came up to the studio to try and put

:10:22.:10:25.

their case to us. Clearly, a lot of people have been sick. They were the

:10:26.:10:30.

ones most vocal in terms of trying to get some justice, as they felt

:10:31.:10:35.

it, for their runner. Do you feel the right thing has been done? The

:10:36.:10:41.

words of van Niekerk in his interview, the opportunity for all

:10:42.:10:45.

athletes and Isaac Makwala will get an opportunity to show what he's

:10:46.:10:50.

got. It's tough. I'm sure he's been through an emotional roller-coaster.

:10:51.:10:54.

The speculations will continue. For eyes sack tonight, he gets a chance

:10:55.:10:59.

to show what he's got. He's prepared so well for these championships.

:11:00.:11:04.

Raced brill APTTly on the Diamond League championships. The guy's 30.

:11:05.:11:08.

Hopefully tonight he gets the opportunity to take that. A lesson

:11:09.:11:15.

learnt. Every permutation and avenue, something might happen, you

:11:16.:11:18.

need to think ahead about these things. This is a big lesson learnt

:11:19.:11:24.

for them? It is a big lesson learnt for everyone, to be honest. We

:11:25.:11:28.

probably need to learn lessons from it. The IAAF needs to. The

:11:29.:11:37.

organising committee. Paula, there's a lack of communication which led to

:11:38.:11:42.

all of this? The lessons weren't learnt before now this needs to be

:11:43.:11:48.

communicated. Athletes need to be sure. There are still lack of

:11:49.:11:52.

communation and different stories. It was communicated to him, I think,

:11:53.:11:57.

he was told his accreditation would be void if he came down and tried to

:11:58.:12:02.

compete last night and tried to go into the warm-up area. All of those

:12:03.:12:09.

errors and miscommunication, it was a really difficult swayings for

:12:10.:12:14.

everyone to adapt to. The easiest way in that situation is to be as

:12:15.:12:20.

open as possible, put as much communication and correspondent out

:12:21.:12:22.

there to explain to the athletes. They are the ones who are losing

:12:23.:12:27.

that chance. It could have been any one of them. In the statement it

:12:28.:12:32.

says as according to our rules. This could have been given out as a

:12:33.:12:39.

possible outcome yesterday if there is this possibility in existence?

:12:40.:12:43.

You would think so. They are saying they cannot do anything at this

:12:44.:12:47.

championships which doesn't fit within the IAAF rules. We've never

:12:48.:12:52.

seen this situation before? It fits their rules. We've a spare lane in

:12:53.:12:57.

the semifinal. We can advance him if he makes the time without penalising

:12:58.:13:02.

any other athlete in there. It can be done. Not going against any of

:13:03.:13:07.

the health advice given would have been an outcome that would have been

:13:08.:13:10.

possible to relay yesterday, 24 hours ago? Absolutely. It would have

:13:11.:13:15.

washed all the speculations. There were so many moving parts yesterday.

:13:16.:13:21.

So many changes. Even as the evening went on. We sit here trying to

:13:22.:13:25.

fathom it as we're working it all out. As I said, it's just about the

:13:26.:13:29.

athlete. I would fight tooth and nail to run out there if that was

:13:30.:13:35.

me. If I felt well, I would want to be on that track. They had aprobably

:13:36.:13:41.

have to put me in cuffs to stop me. I also think as the President of the

:13:42.:13:47.

bottoms Juan an federation articulated, they don't want to put

:13:48.:13:50.

anyone at risk and do whatever needs to be done in the interest of public

:13:51.:13:55.

health, it is the way it was communicated is what he had a

:13:56.:13:59.

problem with and we all had a problem with. No-one wants to pub

:14:00.:14:05.

public safety at health. The IAAF needed to do what they needed to

:14:06.:14:09.

protect athletes and officials involved. But you have to explain

:14:10.:14:15.

that to everyone clearly and up front and put all of the information

:14:16.:14:19.

out there so everyone understands what they're dealing with how these

:14:20.:14:23.

decisions have been made. At 6. 40, the gun will go. He'll run on his

:14:24.:14:30.

own a time trial. He'll have to run quicker than 20:53. Lima's time of

:14:31.:14:35.

Portugal. The slowest time. He can do that easily we know. He's a

:14:36.:14:40.

sub-20 runner in these conditions. At least one incidence of being ill

:14:41.:14:43.

and throwing up, do you expect him to be able to do that tonight? He

:14:44.:14:48.

should be. We have to say, you see he's going to have to run in the

:14:49.:14:53.

rain. It's a little bit cool. His conditions today are different to

:14:54.:14:58.

the conditions two days ago during the qualifying process when it was

:14:59.:15:01.

nice weather, warm and it wasn't raining. But, that's well within his

:15:02.:15:09.

capability. He's run 19.74 this year. It is difficult to run by

:15:10.:15:14.

yourself without the aid of competing against others. I'm sure

:15:15.:15:18.

he'll have a tremendous amount of support from this crowd. But he's

:15:19.:15:24.

going to have to also come back, provided he does make it, into the

:15:25.:15:28.

semifinal. He'll have to come back about two hours later to line up and

:15:29.:15:32.

run in the semifinal. I think that can happen. He will take this one

:15:33.:15:38.

round at a time. Deal with this and get to that semifinal first. The two

:15:39.:15:42.

hours later will have a bit of an effect on him. It will look a little

:15:43.:15:46.

weird. Athlete out there running by himself. We saw this last year in

:15:47.:15:54.

Rio during the Olympics with the US 4x100m team running for a qualifying

:15:55.:15:58.

time because someone knocked the baton out of their hand. China got

:15:59.:16:05.

disqualified. A fantastic start list there!

:16:06.:16:12.

Seven, because I have been told it is the driest. It gets a tiny bit of

:16:13.:16:20.

shelter from the roof. If anywhere, it is hardly even dry in here, the

:16:21.:16:26.

atmosphere is so damp! That is at 6.40pm and hopefully by then, a few

:16:27.:16:30.

more people will have come here because we have had some medal

:16:31.:16:34.

ceremonies and they will want lots of support. We can look at that 400

:16:35.:16:39.

metres final. Steve Cram called it. And where they go, the crowd rising

:16:40.:16:55.

for the last event tonight. Wayde van Niekerk, already making up the

:16:56.:17:01.

starter. Trying to get away from Gardner. He always goes through the

:17:02.:17:06.

first 200 quickly and he has to map again. Curly from United States is

:17:07.:17:13.

running well. Van Niekerk starting to go away. It is Wayde van Niekerk

:17:14.:17:24.

at the moment! Gardner is charging. But Van Niekerk is starting to tire

:17:25.:17:30.

out. But he is a world champion again! 43.9 eight. They did their

:17:31.:17:38.

best but they could not hang onto his shirt-tails. Lane 7 because that

:17:39.:17:45.

puzzling he was going to have originally, ironically the leg he

:17:46.:17:49.

was going to be in, and seven is his lucky number! -- that was the lane.

:17:50.:17:57.

We can hear from Van Niekerk after that

:17:58.:18:02.

Congratulations on another gold medal. All this hard work, how does

:18:03.:18:10.

this feel? It is very special, it is my third gold medal in three years

:18:11.:18:14.

and I give thanks to the Lord for blessing me with my talent and I

:18:15.:18:20.

thank God I took this opportunity. The warmth from the crowd was

:18:21.:18:25.

incredible, you are known globally and the embrace was just so warm? It

:18:26.:18:31.

was amazing, I had to put on a good show and it was tough but it might

:18:32.:18:35.

well. What did you know about Isaac Makwala not being allowed to

:18:36.:18:40.

compete? I am just as heartbroken as he is. And how hard he has been

:18:41.:18:46.

working. And his form has come together and it is a pity. And I

:18:47.:18:59.

wish himself and his running mate a speedy recovery. You must come back

:19:00.:19:04.

for the 200 metres tomorrow! Michael Johnson in the studio, going for the

:19:05.:19:11.

double, trying to copy him? Yes, it's not easy, lots of hard work,

:19:12.:19:17.

let us take this one by one, and if all goes well, I have the final, and

:19:18.:19:23.

I will give it more. We love seeing you running, congratulations, again.

:19:24.:19:30.

Thank you for the support. Six races in six days for Wayde van Niekerk,

:19:31.:19:35.

coming age of the end, semifinal tonight, did that take it out of him

:19:36.:19:40.

last night? I don't think so, he is capable of running much faster than

:19:41.:19:46.

last night, he was able to ease off at the end of the race, the issue in

:19:47.:19:51.

the past is just fatigue with the 400 metres and if he is recovered

:19:52.:19:57.

properly and has a good regeneration strategy then he should be fine. I

:19:58.:20:06.

think 200 metres, given the level this year, without Usain Bolt, Andre

:20:07.:20:13.

de Grasse is not in this race, that cleared a path for him. It will not

:20:14.:20:19.

be as difficult as it had been. Isaac Makwala has the fastest time

:20:20.:20:23.

in the world this year so depending on how he can recover from his

:20:24.:20:27.

situation and get through tonight, he could still challenge in the

:20:28.:20:32.

final. When you did this, it was eight races? Over seven days. Little

:20:33.:20:42.

bit harder? I know you don't want to say thanks Mike if I say that, it is

:20:43.:20:50.

a problem! How did you manage your own recovery? You have to train

:20:51.:20:54.

knowing that I am going to be going through eight different races in

:20:55.:20:58.

seven days and you have to train from that and it will take a great

:20:59.:21:03.

deal of endurance, not just in the race but over that period so you

:21:04.:21:06.

have to train for that. You train with short repetitions and recovery

:21:07.:21:14.

and employee recovery and regeneration strategies for every

:21:15.:21:17.

day after you finish those races, active recovery and massage and all

:21:18.:21:23.

that sort of thing. It is a lot of work. Long days. Once you finish the

:21:24.:21:30.

race, there is still a lot of work to do and that is how I was able to

:21:31.:21:36.

do that in 95. Thank you. We are moving because last night was also

:21:37.:21:43.

the men's 800 metres final. And Kyle Langford, who came here ranked 40th

:21:44.:21:47.

in the world, had high hopes for himself. Steve Cram and Brendan

:21:48.:21:49.

Foster... In middle distance running, tactics

:21:50.:21:59.

are crucial, you have to get things right and have a plan and you watch

:22:00.:22:04.

what others do and change if you have to. McBride will be thinking

:22:05.:22:09.

about getting out. I know that Amos and his coach will be shoving to get

:22:10.:22:15.

behind him, the Canadian is leading. And that is the pushing and shoving

:22:16.:22:20.

they were worried about. Always in the opening 200 metres, it is

:22:21.:22:26.

testing, you have to be very careful, you cannot go too quickly

:22:27.:22:31.

unless it catches up with you later. Amos does not want any more of that

:22:32.:22:37.

and begins to move close to take close order to the front running

:22:38.:22:41.

Canadian, Kyle Langford in a very good position. That is too quick,

:22:42.:22:48.

they are going to slow down and I think Kyle Langford coming from

:22:49.:22:55.

behind will get some opportunities. He has been sensible through the

:22:56.:22:59.

first 400 but he has to stay in touch because they are moving up.

:23:00.:23:05.

Faster moving up on the outside, look at him and trying to attack,

:23:06.:23:11.

Amos cannot get through. He can hold him off. Here they come, the

:23:12.:23:17.

Frenchman has got to the front. Langford still at the back Amos does

:23:18.:23:27.

not look like he has got much, here. Kyle Langford is coming! Bosse! In

:23:28.:23:35.

front! Langford is still coming. Bosse gets the gold. Kyle

:23:36.:23:47.

Langford... Almost... Almost got the bronze medal. I wish you had got it,

:23:48.:23:54.

mate, but I don't think you are quite there. A couple of inches.

:23:55.:24:00.

You can hear his voice, he has joined us in the studio. It was

:24:01.:24:10.

really annoying! That is putting things mildly! Running out of track

:24:11.:24:15.

like that. Another few metres and that was yours? It was a horrible

:24:16.:24:19.

thing because give me another ten metres and I would have been going

:24:20.:24:25.

for Gold! It is one of those things. How many times have you seen that

:24:26.:24:31.

already? I watched a bad YouTube video in the evening with my

:24:32.:24:36.

roommate, Elliot, it was very blurry and I watched it also a few times

:24:37.:24:43.

earlier. The BBC iPlayer! I have been busy all day! I have been off

:24:44.:24:50.

my feet! On Five Live you said you had not slept? And not today either.

:24:51.:24:59.

Anything can happen in this interview! Not sleeping because you

:25:00.:25:02.

were celebrating but stuff going through your mind? I were

:25:03.:25:08.

celebrating just being in my bed! Please fall to sleep! It did not

:25:09.:25:15.

happen. Adrenaline. Could I have done this or that? It was a mix of

:25:16.:25:22.

things, I don't really know. I did not know how to feel about the whole

:25:23.:25:29.

situation. I was feeling happy and privileged to be racing in the final

:25:30.:25:34.

but I knew going into the race that I wanted to win a medal. I said from

:25:35.:25:39.

the start of the season, something I really wanted to do and I felt like

:25:40.:25:45.

I could do it and being so close, just falling a little bit short, it

:25:46.:25:51.

is gutting. The cruellest of positions, the first time, so this

:25:52.:25:58.

she thought he was going to do at! So close! The more times you watch

:25:59.:26:04.

it, you think you are going to get their but that gives you the

:26:05.:26:08.

confidence to build on, if somebody said at the beginning of the year,

:26:09.:26:12.

you will be in the World Championship final in London and

:26:13.:26:16.

will finish fourth and just that close to the bronze medal, you would

:26:17.:26:20.

not have believed it but that will give you believe going forward? I

:26:21.:26:27.

think my brain works in a very weird way. At times I would take that end

:26:28.:26:34.

and sometimes, no way, I want to win. I don't know what it is, I am

:26:35.:26:40.

quite a bad loser. I am respectful of losing to my opponents. But I

:26:41.:26:45.

don't like to lose, I always want to win. I do not know if that is a good

:26:46.:26:52.

mentality. That is a great mentality and we love hearing young athletes

:26:53.:26:56.

staking their claim to what they want to be, you said you wanted to

:26:57.:27:02.

take over the mantle of Mo Farah. We have you next to his cushion! I just

:27:03.:27:09.

want to be the best I can be. I want to make a difference in athletics,

:27:10.:27:16.

on and off the track. I really love this sport. I could be a big help to

:27:17.:27:22.

Ed, hopefully. You have hopefully a very long and illustrious future.

:27:23.:27:26.

Paula Radcliffe had a look at the race. Significant moments. You can

:27:27.:27:35.

talk through from the way you were looking at this. You did not do

:27:36.:27:41.

anything wrong. You wanted to run similarly to the semifinal and at

:27:42.:27:46.

this point, it was well set up. What were you thinking? Had you noticed

:27:47.:28:00.

that Bosse was going? I do that Kushot was going to go at some point

:28:01.:28:04.

and I would have liked to have been further up, more boxed in. And I did

:28:05.:28:13.

not see Bosse going. I switched off a little bit and did not like where

:28:14.:28:22.

I was. Going back with 120 metres left, you are just one split second

:28:23.:28:27.

later following Kushot, was that intentional or the crowd helping

:28:28.:28:36.

you? It was a mixture of things. I could hear the crowd getting louder

:28:37.:28:43.

every metre and I think it was that I could feel myself and it was

:28:44.:28:50.

really good, I do not know if it was an experience in the way that I did

:28:51.:28:56.

not really know what to do because I was going through at the right pace,

:28:57.:29:03.

I did not know or expected was going to be so fast, it was cold and windy

:29:04.:29:07.

but I did not want to be at the back. What shall I do? I cannot

:29:08.:29:12.

believe so much is going through your mind! I was about to say that.

:29:13.:29:19.

This is a new situation for you, it will take a few more races of this

:29:20.:29:25.

calibre to work out where you sit, when do you attack, what is your

:29:26.:29:30.

strategy? I am sure you had one but such a fantastic race! It is nice to

:29:31.:29:36.

see an 800 metres runner having the place that you have, which is truly

:29:37.:29:42.

staggering. What have you done in the last few weeks or months to

:29:43.:29:47.

prepare yourself for this moment? It was a change from the heats to the

:29:48.:29:51.

semifinal, something clicked in my mentality over the last 100, before

:29:52.:30:00.

I always had an OK kick and I could carry that but it was not as good as

:30:01.:30:04.

others and I went back after the heat and I have been doing Hurdles,

:30:05.:30:12.

small Hurdles, driving my knees. We ended up looking at my races and

:30:13.:30:19.

there was no driving from my knees, my legs were just flinging at the

:30:20.:30:25.

back. I remember getting into the semifinal and the crowd was going

:30:26.:30:29.

crazy and I just thought, Hurdles drills, left my knees. I was just

:30:30.:30:38.

propelling forward. And I remember the last 15 metres, I was sinking, I

:30:39.:30:42.

looked at the clock, I will not get a personal best, and then I felt, I

:30:43.:30:53.

will have to qualify and I thought, I will have to recover for the

:30:54.:30:54.

final! In my head I was thinking, I've made

:30:55.:31:03.

this through. You need to store that up. You need to store where your

:31:04.:31:07.

mind was for the races to come. Where your mind was in the semifinal

:31:08.:31:14.

and the final was the right place. And the heats, maybe you put a

:31:15.:31:18.

little pressure on yourself. There was pressure coming in. Coming into

:31:19.:31:21.

the final you really had nothing to lose. Let's face it, two years ago

:31:22.:31:25.

you were winning juniors. Now you're up on the senior stage. It's a big

:31:26.:31:30.

jump. You've made a really strong jump. Now to consolidate there, the

:31:31.:31:37.

winner last night raced out of his skin but was fourth last year. Those

:31:38.:31:43.

progressions are within your reach now. The thing that gives me

:31:44.:31:48.

confidence is not that I come from the world stage, it's more how far I

:31:49.:31:54.

was away from actually winning. I watched the race back and think to

:31:55.:32:01.

myself, I could have won that if I positioned myself a little further

:32:02.:32:05.

up. I didn't feel any lactic going into the last 100. I don't know if

:32:06.:32:12.

it was the adrenaline in the crowd. I felt I could have gone a bit

:32:13.:32:17.

harder, got a bit more involved. These things I'll learn and take

:32:18.:32:21.

into the Commonwealth and world indoors. Are you going to stay with

:32:22.:32:29.

us? Yeah. Mo is back in the house tonight. Brendan Foster caught up

:32:30.:32:33.

with him the morning after he won the 10,000 metres on Friday. Caught

:32:34.:32:37.

up with him on Saturday morning. It was a bit drier then. They had a

:32:38.:32:39.

good old chat. Legend. Hey, I tell you what!

:32:40.:32:58.

COMMENTATOR: Time and time again, he's delivered. One more time for Mo

:32:59.:33:04.

Farah. In front of his home crowd in the city he knows so well, the city

:33:05.:33:09.

that he loves, the track that set him on this brilliant journey.

:33:10.:33:13.

Congratulations that was a fantastic performance last night. It was a

:33:14.:33:18.

pleasure to be there. Never nervous? Yesterday was different for me

:33:19.:33:23.

knowing it would be the last 10K. I was quiet yesterday. People were

:33:24.:33:28.

like, what's wrong, Mo? Yesterday, you were going pretty quickly. I was

:33:29.:33:34.

pretty close this year. I knew something was going to happen. The

:33:35.:33:39.

last ten years, they were saying how they'd beat me and what they were

:33:40.:33:43.

going to do. They never follow. Fair play to them, they followed this

:33:44.:33:47.

year. One of the toughest of my career.

:33:48.:33:51.

COMMENTATOR: He orchestrates the race. I'm telling the people, I've

:33:52.:33:56.

got the whole nation behind me. What do you have that can help me out?

:33:57.:34:02.

Never been as quick or hard as this. 3,000 metres I was hurting and

:34:03.:34:06.

tired. A lot of elbows. That race was crazy.

:34:07.:34:08.

COMMENTATOR: This is phenomenal racing. 800 m out and I kneel got a

:34:09.:34:14.

couple of trips. I thought, they're not going fast enough to beat me.

:34:15.:34:18.

Try to control it where you feel good and have something left for the

:34:19.:34:22.

last lap and go for it. That was my plan.

:34:23.:34:24.

COMMENTATOR: The British best with the heart pounding beneath it. When

:34:25.:34:28.

you crossed line, tell us? It was beautiful. Beautiful. I really

:34:29.:34:33.

enjoyed it. That one moment which can't be forgotten. It won't be

:34:34.:34:40.

forgotten, Mo, it was a great race. COMMENTATOR: Super power. Gold for

:34:41.:34:45.

Farah. Are you excited about next weekend? Arsenal. Away to Leicester?

:34:46.:34:54.

Right? Not Arsenal. Sorry. Mo Farah, 5000 metres. Physically OK? Few

:34:55.:34:59.

scratches. Few bruises. Will have to take care of it. I have to rest up

:35:00.:35:04.

now and think, whatever happens, happens. It is a new race. Heats

:35:05.:35:09.

tonight for Mo although not much heat around here, let me tell you.

:35:10.:35:14.

You said you want to emulate him, Kyle. That's what you have to do. A

:35:15.:35:21.

lot of golds there. Easy! You better get started soon! I know. How can

:35:22.:35:26.

you not be inspired by that? Just the way he is. I don't know, I envy

:35:27.:35:32.

it. A wonderful person for you as a 21-year-old athlete to have to look

:35:33.:35:37.

up to. He's moving on after these championships. There will be a void?

:35:38.:35:44.

Middling distance in general's looking really, really good in

:35:45.:35:48.

Britain. The 1500 this year has been amazing. The 8 stepped its game up.

:35:49.:35:52.

There are a lot of youngsters coming through. I think we're on the verge

:35:53.:35:57.

of breaking through something really special here. That was one question

:35:58.:36:04.

I was going to ask you, how difficult has it been transitions

:36:05.:36:08.

from the juniors? A few athletes have come through. Has it helped you

:36:09.:36:15.

prepare for the stage? The futures helped me massively. When there was

:36:16.:36:20.

a problem and I didn't know who to go for futures was there. It helped

:36:21.:36:24.

sort out my injuries. Jo Jennings was the person behind it. She was

:36:25.:36:29.

great. She helped. I was doing testing. I got out to Kenya. That

:36:30.:36:37.

really got me from my junior stage, pushed me on. I remember 2015 and I

:36:38.:36:43.

ended up running in Beijing, my first senior competition. That

:36:44.:36:47.

really, really helped me. It is a really, really good programme for

:36:48.:36:51.

these youngsters to help pursue their career. We saw your mum and

:36:52.:36:57.

dad last night. Your family were so enthusiastic, so supportive of you

:36:58.:37:01.

ahead of the race. They were going to give away free chips today if

:37:02.:37:06.

there was a medal. Did they extend it to fourth? I don't know. I kind

:37:07.:37:11.

of get to the point, like a couple of weeks before the competition, I

:37:12.:37:15.

just don't speak to anyone. That looks lovely. Don't! If Kyle has

:37:16.:37:24.

inspired you and, remember, it's not that long ago he was a young junior

:37:25.:37:30.

runner, running out there in probably cross country, school

:37:31.:37:33.

races, you fancy it and think you've talent go on to the BBC Sport

:37:34.:37:39.

website and it will tell you where you can join a running club. My son

:37:40.:37:45.

is a realing fan. You're lighting up lights across the country. Thank you

:37:46.:37:48.

so much for coming in and joining us here. Continue the good work. Next

:37:49.:37:53.

year, Commonwealths and European podium finishes for you? Definitely.

:37:54.:37:57.

I will be very disappointed if I don't. That's what I'm striving to

:37:58.:38:01.

do. Thank you for having me. Thank you. A pleasure. You're going to

:38:02.:38:07.

Watford? No, I'm going to stay here. It's a little rainy. I'm bit of a

:38:08.:38:12.

girl when it comes to that! Let's get out on the track. It is a little

:38:13.:38:16.

bit rainy. How are these conditions going to affect eyes sack Makwala?

:38:17.:38:22.

It was always the loneliness of the long distance runner but the

:38:23.:38:26.

loneliness of the short distance sprinter tonight?

:38:27.:38:31.

COMMENTATOR: He'll get a lot of support from the crowd. Most people

:38:32.:38:35.

surely following his story. Been in touch with his camp over the last

:38:36.:38:39.

half hour or so. They say he's feeling good. He's been a bit

:38:40.:38:44.

stressed, understandably. He hasn't been told exactly what will happen.

:38:45.:38:50.

He'll get lane 1 in the semi if he does run 24.53. He's been given lane

:38:51.:38:55.

7 because that's what he was drawn in the heats. The fact he wasn't in

:38:56.:39:02.

the heats meant the young junior Italian got through into the

:39:03.:39:07.

semifinal. If it is semifinal 3 with Danny Talbot in, it is really tough,

:39:08.:39:12.

van Niekerk's in that one as well, the normal protocol is you go into

:39:13.:39:16.

the last of the semi-finals. They might look at that. The only time I

:39:17.:39:21.

can remember this, we've talked about the relay. In 2002 in Munich,

:39:22.:39:30.

Paul Brizzel ran into a camera, impeded, he came back in the

:39:31.:39:33.

afternoon and ran on his own in lane 8 or 9. He didn't get through, I

:39:34.:39:40.

remember. So, Makwala, much easier task for him. Lane 7. It's raining

:39:41.:39:45.

heavily but it's dry where he starts. Dry around the bend. He'll

:39:46.:39:49.

get wet about 50 metres from the line. I think... Well, as long as he

:39:50.:39:58.

can concentrate on himself, that's all he can do. There's a start list.

:39:59.:40:06.

A bit odd, lane 7, Isaac Makwala. Time trialling, athletes do that all

:40:07.:40:11.

the time, run on their own. But it's still got to be difficult

:40:12.:40:14.

psychologically? He has to pick himself up. He's had a tough couple

:40:15.:40:18.

of days. For him, it will be refocusing on the job in hand. He

:40:19.:40:25.

has a specific time, 20.53. He has to beat that. In lane 7. Pretty dry

:40:26.:40:30.

most of the way. The crowd are just starting to cheer him now. They know

:40:31.:40:33.

his story. Don't worry about the fact he has to return in a couple of

:40:34.:40:38.

hours. He is that 400m runner. He has the endurance. He should be

:40:39.:40:44.

fine, Steve. Might help him. A bit more warmed up than the others.

:40:45.:40:51.

Isaac Makwala, denied the chance to run in the 400m final. All of the

:40:52.:40:58.

story that's unfurled over the last 48 hours, just incredible. It boils

:40:59.:41:03.

down to this. He has to run 20.53 seconds or quicker. Given that he's

:41:04.:41:10.

run 19.77 this year, admittedly much better conditions than this that he

:41:11.:41:15.

is facing this evening, he has a lot of room for error. Please don't make

:41:16.:41:27.

a fallings start, Isaac. CHEERING

:41:28.:41:36.

It's been a dramatic two days for the wrong reasons for Makwala

:41:37.:41:45.

Botswana. He just needs to concentrate and then we'll see him a

:41:46.:41:52.

bit later on, I'm pretty sure. The crowd will undoubtedly try to row

:41:53.:41:54.

him home here. Safe start. Listen to the crowd.

:41:55.:42:01.

They really are getting behind him. Don't run on the line either Isaac.

:42:02.:42:05.

Don't run on the line. Here he comes around the bend. He's going well. In

:42:06.:42:10.

fact, he's going very well indeed. What a sight this is. A lone athlete

:42:11.:42:16.

on his own against the clock. Athletics at its best. 20.20! Had.

:42:17.:42:30.

Ha, ha, ha. That is a message to the IAAF saying, I'm fit and healthy.

:42:31.:42:40.

Well, well, well. How bizarre. I don't think there's anything other

:42:41.:42:44.

than goodwill towards Isaac Makwala each from the IAAF. I saw the letter

:42:45.:42:52.

sent to the bats Juan an team officials saying good luck to Isaac.

:42:53.:42:56.

We want him to succeed. I think you're right. No hard feelings. It

:42:57.:43:02.

was an unusual circumstances. Difficult situation. None of us had

:43:03.:43:06.

seen it before. They were trying to create something that was right for

:43:07.:43:10.

all. Actually seeing him on the track now and performing in this

:43:11.:43:15.

way, I think he should be happy he's through and the IAAF will breathe a

:43:16.:43:19.

sigh of relief feeling they've done the right thing. Which semifinal

:43:20.:43:26.

does he go into? Michelle Blake is in the first semifinal. Van Niekerk

:43:27.:43:33.

in the third. The third is very, very tough. Were he do go into that

:43:34.:43:40.

one he'd meet Danny Talbot and van Niekerk. The British team must be

:43:41.:43:44.

thinking, one of the big contenders not there. He is there now though.

:43:45.:43:51.

He will be there. Perhaps semifinal 3. It will be interesting. Looks how

:43:52.:43:57.

he proves he's fit, ready to go. Hitting those press-ups hard. Steve,

:43:58.:44:04.

can you do press-ups like that? I can do loads more than that. Was it

:44:05.:44:11.

three? I can do at least eight! The first time I've seen slow motion

:44:12.:44:17.

action replays of press-ups. Some of those would be disallowed in a

:44:18.:44:28.

Supperstars. He's just run 200ms. Remember that! I don't think we have

:44:29.:44:37.

a result caption. I think we know what happened there. It was quick,

:44:38.:44:42.

wasn't it? Well done Isaac Makwala. For a moment there on the bend, I

:44:43.:44:47.

thought he'd go out of his lane. It must be hard not having another body

:44:48.:44:52.

next to you? It is. You don't have that guide to go off of. It was

:44:53.:44:58.

interesting listen to Crammy, it's going really well. How can you tell.

:44:59.:45:02.

There's nothing to measure against the fantastic opportunity for him.

:45:03.:45:07.

I'm so pleased he's been allowed to get himself back into this 200

:45:08.:45:12.

metres. This is tough. To go out there and run alone by yourself, I

:45:13.:45:17.

mean, to get out there, it's a strange situation. I'm sure he's

:45:18.:45:20.

never done this before. Yeah, you just run. Athletes will run time

:45:21.:45:24.

trials from time to time in training. You have to look at it

:45:25.:45:29.

that way. He's a veteran. He knows what to do. He's very quick. You

:45:30.:45:35.

just have to try to treat it like a time trial and practice. Work on,

:45:36.:45:40.

it's all speed and it can kneeing at that point. Just executing the

:45:41.:45:44.

strategy. There's no racing, no competition. Just some analysis of

:45:45.:45:51.

that, I think, maybe there are five push-ups there, three of them maybe!

:45:52.:45:56.

There's van Niekerk watching. I'm sure he would have wanted Makwala to

:45:57.:46:05.

be in that race as well and will as he said in his press conference,

:46:06.:46:10.

wishes he could give him his own medal. You want your top competition

:46:11.:46:14.

there. We'll have that now at least in the semifinal. It will be

:46:15.:46:16.

interesting to see how they determine which one he goes into.

:46:17.:46:20.

Hopefully, it won't take too much out of him for the final. Should he

:46:21.:46:24.

make it through the semifinal tonight. Thank you, Michael. Den

:46:25.:46:31.

eyes, you're delighted he did it and got himself that time?

:46:32.:46:36.

It what you want to see. You want to see them getting the chance. The

:46:37.:46:43.

best who have all year been producing the goods, you want them

:46:44.:46:47.

to be on the biggest stage. It is about medals and there is a medal

:46:48.:46:50.

ceremony about to take place behind me. You might recognise that music.

:46:51.:46:56.

It is the men's 3,000 metre steeplechase. Andrew Cotter.

:46:57.:47:04.

So the winner on the podium. Kenyan born athlete. They have dominated

:47:05.:47:13.

this event. 39 medals in the 3,000 metre steeplechase and 30 have been

:47:14.:47:16.

won by Kenyanser or Kenyan born. It is Kenya's gold again and it is

:47:17.:47:29.

Kipruto who will hear the National Anthem.

:47:30.:48:43.

They don't have flags being raised. They are just there but the American

:48:44.:48:50.

with the bronze. The Moroccan the silver. The gold for Kenya. Kipruto

:48:51.:48:59.

the Olympic champion takes the world title now.

:49:00.:49:08.

Aston Northern Irishing record they have in the steeplechase, Kenya, and

:49:09.:49:12.

it continues here, in London. There is the result of what do you

:49:13.:49:27.

call it, I don't know, the rerun, 20.2. The time trial for Isaac

:49:28.:49:31.

Makwala, which I have been on the computer there, they have not yet

:49:32.:49:35.

changed or added him to the semifinalist for this evening. Those

:49:36.:49:39.

are the qualifier, as I said Mitchell-Blake is in the first of

:49:40.:49:43.

the semifinals, he has been drawn in, Danny Talbot has van Niekerk

:49:44.:50:01.

again, and he has Guliyev. Zharnel Hughes and Blake in there as well.

:50:02.:50:11.

Names to watch out for. And then, tz fastest pleaser, the reason it was

:50:12.:50:15.

20.53, you can see that qualifying time. He couldn't match that, then

:50:16.:50:23.

there would have been a tie. So he has had to run 20.53. We will keep

:50:24.:50:26.

an eye on the computer for the semifinals.

:50:27.:50:33.

Just going to stay out for the medal ceremony of the men's 800 metres. We

:50:34.:50:38.

have just been listening to Kyle, what a great race from him. Can't

:50:39.:50:43.

believe he hasn't gone to seize his girlfriend race in Watford tonight,

:50:44.:50:49.

a right soft clart! He thought he was ahead there. Had a chat earlier

:50:50.:51:07.

on with Kszczot. He was still pleased to have got the Silver

:51:08.:51:10.

Medal. This young man here, the junior

:51:11.:51:15.

champion, we will hear more of him, didn't run a great race. An untidy

:51:16.:51:26.

one for him. I was chatting to Nigel's coach and says there was a

:51:27.:51:32.

bit of pushing with them. It is important, he knows how to do that

:51:33.:51:37.

well. A great race. That is two Silver Medals in a row. He won the

:51:38.:51:44.

silver in Beijing two years ago. Made it a European one-two. Nearly a

:51:45.:51:51.

European one-two-three if Kyle had sneaked in.

:51:52.:52:05.

The World Champion... From France. Was a bit of pushing with them. It

:52:06.:52:14.

is important, he knows how to do that well. A great race. That is two

:52:15.:52:17.

Silver Medals in a row. He won the silver in Beijing two years ago.

:52:18.:52:19.

Made it a European one-two. Nearly a European one-two-three if Kyle had

:52:20.:52:21.

sneaked in. The World Champion... From France.

:52:22.:52:23.

Was a bit of pushing with them. It is important, he knows how to do

:52:24.:52:26.

that well. A great race. That is two Silver Medals in a row. He won the

:52:27.:52:29.

silver in Beijing two years ago. Made it a European one-two. Nearly a

:52:30.:52:32.

European one-two-three if Kyle had sneaked in.

:52:33.:52:33.

The World Champion... From France. "The Boss". I don't know if you had

:52:34.:52:36.

a chance to look at his post race interview, not one with us but he

:52:37.:52:39.

was entertaining, in some of his comments, he is a real character.

:52:40.:52:41.

And he was at his best afterwards, and why not? What a Gold Medal, what

:52:42.:52:44.

a performance from him. He sort of stole it. He was brilliant.

:52:45.:53:02.

Brilliant. He sang every single word and each step, he said when I got to

:53:03.:53:48.

the front I thought I might win this. He said I got to the home

:53:49.:53:51.

straight and thought I can win this and so he did. He was cheered home

:53:52.:53:58.

round the top end. Look at that. Gold Medal for France. Brilliant run

:53:59.:54:10.

from Bosse. Well, the rain keeps on coming, the

:54:11.:54:16.

rollers are out, trying to clear sections of the track, and the

:54:17.:54:20.

runway for the long jump to make them a bit more safe, a little bit

:54:21.:54:23.

faster. Matthew Hudson-Smith. 400 metre

:54:24.:54:39.

runner, must be a bit of relay practise out there tonight Denise. I

:54:40.:54:43.

assume so. Get the legs moving, but, it is wet out here, isn't it. It is

:54:44.:54:48.

miserable. It is not nice for the athlete this is part of sport, they

:54:49.:54:52.

have to get on with it. It is not affecting his fame, clearly.

:54:53.:54:57.

Oh, the hedgehog is getting soaked as well.

:54:58.:55:17.

So to the ceremony for the men's 400 metre final. We saw Wayde van

:55:18.:55:25.

Niekerk sitting in the stands beneath, watching Isaac Makwala

:55:26.:55:29.

qualify for the 200 semifinal, that is where we will see van Niekerk

:55:30.:55:37.

later on of course. It wasn't a vintage run for him. He ran as well

:55:38.:55:43.

as he needed to. He said he wanted to make sure he conserved energy

:55:44.:55:46.

through all the round, he will be a busy man. Taken on the double here.

:55:47.:55:53.

This was his main event. This is his number one event, which he was never

:55:54.:55:57.

going to relinquish, even without Makwala. He was always the

:55:58.:56:04.

favourite. There was a surprise for the bronze

:56:05.:56:11.

medal. A former Sudanese athlete who finished quickly. He did in the

:56:12.:56:18.

rounds on the outside. I think he was in Matthew Hudson-Smith's semi

:56:19.:56:21.

and in the final, he finished quicker than anyone, he was last at

:56:22.:56:26.

the top of the home straight and yaim away with the bronze. Of course

:56:27.:56:31.

next World Championships they will be in his home country as it were.

:56:32.:56:37.

In Doha, 2019. I am sure Steven gardener will be there, he is one of

:56:38.:56:44.

the bright talents. Ran sub 44 in the semifinal. A good performance to

:56:45.:56:48.

take the Silver Medal. Not as quick, looked as though the semi took a bit

:56:49.:56:54.

out of him. He is a nice athlete to watch run as

:56:55.:57:01.

well. The Olympic champion. And the two

:57:02.:57:06.

time World Champion. Wayde van Niekerk of South Africa.

:57:07.:57:15.

Collecting gold medals. Still young, still improving. This year, he has

:57:16.:57:22.

run I think that is his third time under 44. Maybe fourth time. I would

:57:23.:57:27.

have to check. But, more work for him to come but for now can enjoy

:57:28.:57:29.

his Gold Medal. So he is the world champion again,

:57:30.:59:02.

he has more work do, he will be back in two hours for the third semifinal

:59:03.:59:08.

for the 200. He won't face Makwala because he has been drawn in lane

:59:09.:59:12.

one of the first heat, which is Mitchell-Blake's heat, that is going

:59:13.:59:15.

to make that one interesting as well. But for the time being van

:59:16.:59:20.

Niekerk can go away and prepare, but it is Mitchell-Blake who will face

:59:21.:59:31.

Makwala. And that is at 8.55 tonight. I have

:59:32.:59:37.

looked and it doesn't appear to be any drier at nine to nine tonight.

:59:38.:59:42.

The rain keeps on coming and the medals keep on coming for South

:59:43.:59:46.

Africa. That is four for them now, their second gold, will there be

:59:47.:59:49.

more for van Niekerk, you would think so, what colour will it be?

:59:50.:59:55.

Be? America US still topping the table with 11 medals in total. A

:59:56.:59:59.

slow start it has been for Great Britain, with all those fourths and

:00:00.:00:03.

near misses, it is still just me of's gold.

:00:04.:00:08.

-- Mo Farah's gold. Plenty to come this evening for you.

:00:09.:00:17.

It is women's long jump qualification and there a twin

:00:18.:00:21.

American threat with Brittney Reese and Bartoletta.

:00:22.:00:27.

Late addition to the GB squad Shara Proctor will want to recreate her

:00:28.:00:36.

World Championship silver. Also Jazmin Sawyers in this event. Mo

:00:37.:00:43.

Farah returns to the track. It is 5000 metre heats time. He is joined

:00:44.:00:49.

in his heat by a fellow Brit who finished sixth in Rio last summer.

:00:50.:00:53.

Wayde van Niekerk and Danny Talbot get reacquainted in the 400 metres

:00:54.:01:01.

semifinals. Kerron Clement is attempting to become the first in

:01:02.:01:06.

history to win three world titles in his event. Alison Phillips is aiming

:01:07.:01:07.

to make it ten world titles. We are kicking off at 7:05pm with

:01:08.:01:28.

that 3000 women's steeplechase. Featuring Britain's Lennie Waite and

:01:29.:01:36.

Rosie Clarke. Shara Proctor, Lorraine to get in and Jazmin

:01:37.:01:38.

Sawyers are the home hopes in the long jump. Mo Farah has been

:01:39.:01:51.

recovering in a cryo sauna since the 10,000 metres final last Friday.

:01:52.:01:57.

Let's hope he is fully rested for tonight's Keyte. Michelle Carter is

:01:58.:02:01.

the headline act in the women's shot put final. The newly qualified

:02:02.:02:15.

Makwala is going to be in heat one of the 200 metres semifinals. Next

:02:16.:02:20.

on track is the men's 400 metres hurdles final. And come patriot

:02:21.:02:27.

Allyson Felix is in the women's 400 metres final to round off the night.

:02:28.:02:33.

Lennie Waite is somewhere out there in the rain, getting ready to start

:02:34.:02:39.

this 3000 metres steeplechase set of heats. I imagine it will be a little

:02:40.:02:46.

bit tricky out there out there -- for them on the barriers. Is there

:02:47.:02:50.

anything they can do? A massive towel! No, nothing you can do. A lot

:02:51.:03:00.

of water is involved anywhere. All of the athletes heard all the

:03:01.:03:04.

barriers, so they are not going to put their foot on it. It's just the

:03:05.:03:12.

water jump where they do. The rest of them they will hope to negotiate.

:03:13.:03:21.

It is just making it miserable and cold for everybody out there, the

:03:22.:03:27.

conditions. The track is a bit wet. Especially the inside lanes. The

:03:28.:03:30.

configuration of the roof here means that the outer part of the track,

:03:31.:03:37.

round the top bend, is dry, but not the area they go through for the

:03:38.:03:41.

steeplechase. They pretty much have a full lap with a wet track. Shara

:03:42.:03:47.

Proctor, over on the far side there. The long jumpers are keeping dry,

:03:48.:03:53.

thankfully. Just. You can see the rain coming under the lip of the

:03:54.:03:58.

shelter. The two parallel runways for the long jump qualifying. Shara

:03:59.:04:04.

Proctor and Jazmin Sawyers warning up there. It is 2.70 metres to

:04:05.:04:21.

qualify. Pretty tough qualifying in this steeplechase. Plenty of names

:04:22.:04:29.

in there. Jepkemoi of Kenya. Krause, medallist last time as well. Lots of

:04:30.:04:34.

names I will talk about when we are getting going. Kirui. It will make

:04:35.:04:47.

it hard for Lennie Waite. Lennie had to get an invite because she didn't

:04:48.:04:53.

make the qualifying time. There are insights given to home country

:04:54.:04:59.

athletes by the IAAF, so she was the recipient of one of those. Rosie

:05:00.:05:05.

Clarke for Great Britain is going in the next heat. The defending

:05:06.:05:11.

champion on the inside, Jepkemoi. She is in great form this year. And

:05:12.:05:16.

Ruth Jebet, the Olympic champion, going in the next one. She has had

:05:17.:05:25.

one or two problems. Just over 7.5 laps of the track. The water jump is

:05:26.:05:30.

on the inside of the track here in the London Stadium. They don't take

:05:31.:05:36.

the water jump first time round, so they will be dry for a short period

:05:37.:05:42.

here. Just coming back to the point, while they are jogging off here. I

:05:43.:05:49.

read overnight that the French athlete put in another protest in

:05:50.:05:56.

the men's steeplechase final, that another athlete had put his feet on

:05:57.:06:01.

the line. The referees said, yes he did, but it was on the straight part

:06:02.:06:06.

of the steeplechase. I cannot believe they are looking at it again

:06:07.:06:10.

to get another medal. It is disgusting to me that he would do

:06:11.:06:16.

that. He completely missed the boat to be able to get a medal. Finished

:06:17.:06:22.

very tidily and very fast, and then he is immediately looking at footage

:06:23.:06:27.

to see if he could get a medal. If we did that every time, you wouldn't

:06:28.:06:33.

feel like you had learnt a bronze medal if you took it away from

:06:34.:06:39.

somebody else. For the second year in a row, they put a protest in.

:06:40.:06:44.

They were successful in the Olympics, but not so this time. The

:06:45.:06:49.

pace is not as quick as you would expect. I've mention Peru me. And

:06:50.:06:57.

Krause, the German, who ran very well two years ago. The European

:06:58.:07:04.

champ in has been building into form this year. She didn't start very

:07:05.:07:12.

well. She is a big exponent of altitude training, and went to

:07:13.:07:16.

Ethiopia for it. She has got herself into good form to get into these

:07:17.:07:22.

championships. She did. She looked good winning the European team

:07:23.:07:25.

championship, but she looked like she moved on a level from that race

:07:26.:07:30.

in Rabatts. So peaking at the right time. Colleen Quigley sitting on her

:07:31.:07:41.

shoulder there. She hasn't seen her compatriot get a medal, so she will

:07:42.:07:45.

be looking to advance from these heats. Trying to drive the track

:07:46.:07:52.

there! Tough qualifying conditions. The first three only to go through

:07:53.:08:01.

in what is a hard heat. The problem with the slow pace is that you

:08:02.:08:06.

cannot cite the barriers very well, particularly in the pack. So it is

:08:07.:08:17.

good to move out. Getent of Bahrain moving out, the former Ethiopian.

:08:18.:08:22.

Assefa absolutely sat in the water almost there, came to a complete and

:08:23.:08:27.

utter stop. One of the most experienced athletes in this, in the

:08:28.:08:33.

green and yellow of Ethiopia. Came to a complete stop in the water

:08:34.:08:44.

jump. Quigley, a very good American. Coached by the same coach who also

:08:45.:08:50.

coached Jager, who won the bronze yesterday. It might be the Moroccan

:08:51.:08:59.

athletes there who has taken the lead, Madane. She has seen her

:09:00.:09:04.

compatriot get a silver medal there. She was one of the athletes who

:09:05.:09:08.

walked out and looked the least happy to compete in these

:09:09.:09:14.

conditions. But she has opened up a gap behind her. They are not that

:09:15.:09:20.

keen to go with her. The others need to take the challenge, because it's

:09:21.:09:23.

better for the likes of Quigley and Krause to move with her. She's not

:09:24.:09:31.

going to completely run away from them. Quigley looking for a bit of

:09:32.:09:35.

room. The Kenyans are not bothered, because they will assume they can

:09:36.:09:39.

move into the top three on the last lap anyway. But there's too many

:09:40.:09:45.

good athletes here. Getent, Krause, Assefa. Madane has at least got this

:09:46.:09:57.

moving a bit. Plenty still in with a chance. The second semifinal.

:09:58.:10:02.

Thereof six fastest loser spots available. Rosie Clarke is in the

:10:03.:10:10.

second heat. After stringing it out, Sidi Madane, she has let the pace

:10:11.:10:15.

dropped now, and has relinquished the lead to Kirui. The pace does

:10:16.:10:24.

need to be pushed a bit. When you are in the first heat, you are at a

:10:25.:10:30.

distinct disadvantage if it goes slow, because in the second heat,

:10:31.:10:33.

they will know what pace they need to go at and will have a better

:10:34.:10:38.

chance of getting into the six fastest losers. In the top for

:10:39.:10:44.

there, you have the Commonwealth champion in two roomy. You have the

:10:45.:10:47.

defending world champion Jepkemoi in there. And you have the defending

:10:48.:10:52.

world champion, Assefa, in there as well. There's plenty of ability

:10:53.:11:05.

there. Assefa is not the quickest in the latter stages, so she might

:11:06.:11:09.

start thinking that she needs to make this a bit of a longer run. It

:11:10.:11:16.

is flowing again, Paula. They are queueing up. Look how wide they are

:11:17.:11:21.

as they are moving out to get a good site on the barriers. Nobody is

:11:22.:11:24.

happy being at the front of this race. More relevant in finals. If

:11:25.:11:31.

you are at the front, you have to do something with it. Sidi Madane is

:11:32.:11:35.

all too late in the pace of it, surging and then letting it drop.

:11:36.:11:41.

Colleen Quigley on her inside looks relaxed. But she will be thinking,

:11:42.:11:46.

there are too many people in this group, and if somebody does not make

:11:47.:11:51.

a move soon, somebody like Assefa or Quigley needs to start pushing the

:11:52.:11:58.

pace on. This is so slow. Plenty of athletes in here who are around 9.40

:11:59.:12:08.

also. They will be looking round thinking, here I am. Lennie Waite

:12:09.:12:13.

still in that group. This is where the sort of accidents can happen.

:12:14.:12:18.

There's too many people just gathered and no pace on. Jepkemoi

:12:19.:12:23.

looking behind and looking where Assefa is. On the inside, Quigley.

:12:24.:12:34.

There is also Getent of Bahrain there. I think Bahrain have got

:12:35.:12:41.

three athletes declared in this. Getent is looking very easy. She has

:12:42.:12:46.

kept as dry as she can in this weather in this race. She has

:12:47.:12:51.

covered any moves and starting to push that gap that has opened up

:12:52.:13:02.

between Lennie Waite and Danois. Assefa looks like she might be

:13:03.:13:07.

moving a bit. Sanchez of Spain in the red and yellow. The French

:13:08.:13:17.

athlete, Danois, still hanging in a bit, but faltered a bit there.

:13:18.:13:21.

Lennie Waite starting to struggle as the pace starts to pick up. 600

:13:22.:13:28.

metres to go. The water jump for the penultimate time. Only three can

:13:29.:13:32.

qualify. Lennie Waite the last through of that group. She will have

:13:33.:13:38.

to finish as quickly as she can, but I suspect there will not be too many

:13:39.:13:43.

fastest losers from this heat. She will need a long, hard run in.

:13:44.:13:46.

Krause moved inside from a good position, but I

:13:47.:14:02.

think it was to sites that barrier. Now she is in a position... Sidi

:14:03.:14:05.

Madane has moved across. Kirui, the Commonwealth champion, now

:14:06.:14:06.

struggling. Not looking very comfortable. The front five starting

:14:07.:14:17.

to pull away. Kirui, the Commonwealth champion, really

:14:18.:14:21.

struggling to hang onto this. Krause getting some room on the inside. Got

:14:22.:14:26.

to the barrier properly. Hurdles it well. Kirui desperately trying to

:14:27.:14:36.

get back into this. Assefa there. Krause looking for some room on the

:14:37.:14:41.

inside. The water for the last time. Krause takes it well. There goes

:14:42.:14:50.

Krause. She's so good at this. The last barriers. Started into it, but

:14:51.:14:58.

took it OK. Krause is going to go through. Jepkemoi and Quigley

:14:59.:15:07.

definitely. The time is 9.39. I think, as Lennie Waite comes in,

:15:08.:15:13.

going to be around 9.52 by the time she gets to the line. I'm not sure

:15:14.:15:17.

that anyone who is not in the top three here cannot even hope... They

:15:18.:15:24.

can hope that the others go as slow as they have. Once you get as low as

:15:25.:15:31.

9.40, the ones in the other race have a chance. What about

:15:32.:15:36.

Krausestrong, out kicked of the defending world champion there.

:15:37.:15:45.

She really had to work to guard her position as well. We will have a

:15:46.:15:51.

look at them coming into the final water jump. Krause takes that one

:15:52.:15:56.

well. Sees the space on the inside but had to fight to hold it. Quigley

:15:57.:16:06.

follows through in the gap Krause opened end and got into third place.

:16:07.:16:17.

Those three are clear there. It's the battle really behind for

:16:18.:16:20.

Gabourey Sidibe. -- Sidi Madane. They know they needed to get into

:16:21.:16:26.

that position. Krause, id it didn't matter, it was the first three that

:16:27.:16:35.

would go through, Jepkemoi, and Krause.

:16:36.:16:47.

And the rain keeps on pouring, but it continue affect the long jumpers.

:16:48.:16:52.

Is a loaded field forethem and Mo Farah, it is the heats of the 5,000

:16:53.:17:00.

metres in 45 minutes time. He is used to these conditions, he will

:17:01.:17:03.

have had plenty of rain in London. This is nothing for Mo.

:17:04.:17:13.

Two long jump run ups are being used this evening, and we are all over

:17:14.:17:25.

this competition. We are on the dry side fortunately. Here comes Shara

:17:26.:17:32.

Proctor. In the long jump qualification. He

:17:33.:17:35.

is looking for support from the crowd. It is damp. Cool. Proctor

:17:36.:17:44.

round one. That is just over six metres. It is

:17:45.:17:48.

greasy, slippy, not great conditions, Tony. It will tough.

:17:49.:17:52.

They are running into a head wind. It is wet, that makes you cold. You

:17:53.:17:56.

are trying to sprint as best as you can, it would be better if you are

:17:57.:18:01.

warm. On a pen ultimate, it needs to be active on the board. A bit too

:18:02.:18:06.

much vertical so went too high. Needs to keep it flatter to

:18:07.:18:14.

penetrate into the pit. 6.07. Shy of what she will need.

:18:15.:18:28.

First round. Klishina. It's a lodger effort. Klishina, the only athlete

:18:29.:18:40.

last year jumping in the Rio Olympics, came ninth.

:18:41.:18:47.

Said she was bullied on instra gram and branded a traitor for competing

:18:48.:18:52.

in a neutral vest as a Russian athlete.

:18:53.:18:56.

In her interview before the World Championships, Klishina is a

:18:57.:19:02.

contender. 7.05 at her very best. 6.51. Best jump so far.

:19:03.:19:09.

Jazmin Sawyers then. Always a bright light, looking up to this as she

:19:10.:19:17.

will need to be, her best this year, 6.55. She will need all of that and

:19:18.:19:21.

some more. To go through to the final on Friday.

:19:22.:19:27.

Good height. Maybe lacked a bit of speed. Probably too much height. It

:19:28.:19:32.

is speed to carry her, every time she goes too high, you go up but you

:19:33.:19:37.

fall, gravity brings you back down. It needs a flatter take off. Her

:19:38.:19:44.

great ability is her ability to recoil, that strength, that tight

:19:45.:19:50.

spring. Board, OK you can get a few more, in these wet conditions, half

:19:51.:19:54.

op half off will give you a bit more grip.

:19:55.:20:00.

So Kelly Sotherton coaching now, 6.17 for Jazmin Sawyers in the first

:20:01.:20:06.

round. Possibly Britain's best chance of a

:20:07.:20:11.

medallist in this long jump is Lorraine Ugen.

:20:12.:20:16.

Her first jump, to try and make that final. Look at that big PB. That is

:20:17.:20:24.

from last year. 6.97 when she gets it right. That is a big effort. The

:20:25.:20:30.

blue line is that auto qualifying and that is close to it. That is

:20:31.:20:34.

very good. That is a very good opener that. Just shortened up the

:20:35.:20:38.

last stride so you quicken and elevate. Much better shin angle,

:20:39.:20:44.

right on top. Just a sink and pull but that is active. Whirls the arms

:20:45.:20:49.

round a bit. Comes in a bit premature, that may be good enough

:20:50.:20:52.

to get through, I would have thought. 6.63. Bartoletta, one of

:20:53.:21:04.

the favourites for the title here. Olympic champion last year. Reigning

:21:05.:21:12.

World Champion in her first attempt. Oh way down on what we thought might

:21:13.:21:19.

happen there but Bartoletta may be struggling in these condition,

:21:20.:21:21.

doubting her foot position on the board maybe. It is is a tough

:21:22.:21:25.

business getting your foot down on the board and not slipping. The

:21:26.:21:29.

difference is she has more speed on the board than anybody else. You can

:21:30.:21:35.

see how quickly the cadence, the way she comes in and quickens. It is

:21:36.:21:38.

difficult out there, you are coming out, it is wet, you are cold. You

:21:39.:21:42.

want to get qualifying done and dusted and back in doors as quickly

:21:43.:21:50.

as possible. That is the idea. Get the qualifying and Lorraine Ugen,

:21:51.:21:56.

good stuff from her. Here is the other American bit anyReese.

:21:57.:22:03.

Champion of 2011 -- Brittney Reese. Expecting a ding-dong battle between

:22:04.:22:06.

the two American, we would love Lorraine Ugen to get involved in

:22:07.:22:11.

that. Brittney Reese getting in pursuit of 6.70 or better and is

:22:12.:22:14.

also shy of it. So they are struggling. It underlines how good

:22:15.:22:21.

that jump was of Lorraine Ugen. A centimetre behind Bartoletta. Reese

:22:22.:22:27.

looks shy of that. Dropped her feet in a built early. Drives the knee, a

:22:28.:22:33.

sink and step there, just drops her feet in bait early. Body gets

:22:34.:22:37.

forwards, from that. They are running into a head wind as well, so

:22:38.:22:42.

they haven't made it easy to get the 6 metres 706789 No qualifiers in the

:22:43.:22:48.

first jumps. The news from the first semifinal is that was result and you

:22:49.:22:52.

will probably notice the name of Quigley has been missed off. He did

:22:53.:22:57.

finish in third place in the qualifying place. She has been

:22:58.:23:02.

disqualified, which is, the infringement is for a lane

:23:03.:23:05.

infringement, so she has stepped off the line, so she has been

:23:06.:23:09.

disqualified. Second one to come now. Under way and as Steven and

:23:10.:23:14.

Paula mentioned, you probably saw how slow that first heat was as

:23:15.:23:18.

well. Immediately it seems to be a bit sharper here. Again the

:23:19.:23:20.

advantage of going in the second heat or the third which is still to

:23:21.:23:27.

come, and Rosie Clarke goes in the third heat. No British involvement

:23:28.:23:33.

here. 9.54 would get you into the fastest of the losers here, because

:23:34.:23:36.

there was no real pace about that first one. But the athletes to look

:23:37.:23:58.

out for the Ken grand. Such a strong runner and alongside Fente. It is

:23:59.:24:04.

easily within the compass of a few to go through if not automatically

:24:05.:24:08.

as fastest losers. They have a distinct advantage. It is crazy

:24:09.:24:12.

because the first heat was the toughest of the heat, you would

:24:13.:24:17.

expect something to give it a go and to at least get the pace moving

:24:18.:24:23.

along within that race. This by contrast has gone out quicker. Jebet

:24:24.:24:33.

moving out to the front. Jebet ahead of Chepkoech two of the favourites

:24:34.:24:39.

are. Beginning to Tring this out at a good pace. Pace: That is fent the

:24:40.:24:46.

Ethopian, you see the dangers of what can happen in the water jump.

:24:47.:24:50.

You can Coll a halt. The slope is angles up. The further you go the

:24:51.:24:55.

shall we are the water but if you get it wrong you can come to a halt.

:24:56.:25:01.

It is not just about your pace over 3,000 metres it is your technique

:25:02.:25:04.

and Fente got it wrong. A brilliant performancer Spanovic.

:25:05.:25:24.

We think about the chances for the British jumpers. Spanovic first

:25:25.:25:28.

attempt. Slightlily dropped back there, in

:25:29.:25:32.

her leg shoot. We put her put a series of jumps in the European

:25:33.:25:37.

indoors that was quite incredible. Maybe hasn't quite transferred that

:25:38.:25:42.

to the outdoors this summer, but Spanovic, one to watch. Shy of that

:25:43.:25:49.

auto qualifying line. Still no-one beyond that 6.70 that would give

:25:50.:25:52.

them the comfort of taking the spikes off. Going back in the dry.

:25:53.:25:56.

Spanovic waiting for her measurement. It is 6.62. A

:25:57.:26:02.

centimetre behind Lorraine Ugen, and Bartoletta. Shara Proctor, I think

:26:03.:26:09.

that is. I think it is. That is our guess. When she turns round we will

:26:10.:26:14.

know. So 6.02 the start. Jazmin Sawyers

:26:15.:26:19.

will need more. The best of British so far is Lorraine Ugen with 6.63.

:26:20.:26:25.

Two jumps remaining. A different heat here in the women's

:26:26.:26:32.

steeplechase. The pace is really being set hard by Jebet and chip

:26:33.:26:44.

coke. -- chip coke. Very close to sub nine minutes. They are, they are

:26:45.:26:51.

doing it safely a stutter from Jebet. She has a side on technique a

:26:52.:26:57.

few athletes favour. They are having a bit of race here, Paula. They are.

:26:58.:27:03.

There is not really any need to do this. They went through in 3.02.

:27:04.:27:07.

That is quicker than the first heat went. So as quick as they needed to

:27:08.:27:13.

go. They only enjoyed to be in the first three, these two can relax,

:27:14.:27:19.

keep that buffer and the real race is happening behind. The others need

:27:20.:27:27.

to keep going because they are clearfully the qualifying positions

:27:28.:27:43.

and will knock out the first six. She knows they raced well, these two

:27:44.:27:47.

now may be can work together to try and make sure that if one goes

:27:48.:27:53.

through, as the third automatic qualifier, the other has a good

:27:54.:27:58.

chance of being the fastest loser. It is still Jebet and Chepkoech out

:27:59.:28:03.

in front. They have separated themselves in third and fourth,

:28:04.:28:07.

behind these two now, so we have the American and you have the Jamaican

:28:08.:28:15.

brought. Jebet and Chepkoech, they only don't need to worry about them.

:28:16.:28:20.

They are racing among themselves, they don't need to waste any energy

:28:21.:28:25.

here, ahead of the final on Friday. They are well aware of how clear

:28:26.:28:29.

they are. They are not opening the gap any further, but it's a good

:28:30.:28:33.

race behind them. They are not opening the gap any further. They

:28:34.:28:37.

have decided to look at the screen and take the foot off the gas a bit.

:28:38.:28:44.

Now they have built up that cushion, the only danger comes from the not

:28:45.:28:54.

too great hurdling technique. There is a battle further back. Trying to

:28:55.:29:03.

get back, leading the group of four, trying to get back to the two in

:29:04.:29:08.

third and fourth. They are the ones we want to look at. The American.

:29:09.:29:20.

Also brought from Jamaica who has dope a lot of her racing in the US

:29:21.:29:25.

college circuit. They will qualify. It is this group here, I say group,

:29:26.:29:31.

a group of two if you can have such a thing. The group behind them, is

:29:32.:29:37.

about 10, 15 metres and they are not losing contact. It is only three to

:29:38.:29:42.

go through automatically. It's a good tussle behind the two out in

:29:43.:29:47.

front. It is like two battles going on with two in front. They are going

:29:48.:29:52.

to go through and qualify. The battle behind that is between

:29:53.:30:05.

brought. It is significant but it is not impossible to close down in the

:30:06.:30:12.

next two laps. A good race led by Fente. They are trying to get back

:30:13.:30:16.

to those two in third and fourth but chase a time. This heat is much

:30:17.:30:20.

quicker, at least from the top two, than the first heat was, and again,

:30:21.:30:24.

a very sluggish first heat with the last of the fastest losers at the

:30:25.:30:32.

moment, down 9.54. Three heats in total and Rosie Clarke goes in the

:30:33.:30:33.

next. Jebet has a very ungainly stand. It

:30:34.:30:46.

makes you wince as she comes down. If you contrast the style of Jebet

:30:47.:30:59.

with others, it is evident they work on the barriers. Jebet represents

:31:00.:31:07.

Bahrain, but she still trains in her native Kenya. Trains with Chespol,

:31:08.:31:15.

who comes in the next heat. Three go through automatically. Frerichs, the

:31:16.:31:23.

American, tries to lift the place. That Praught is still just behind

:31:24.:31:31.

her, the Jamaican. At the moment, Aisha Praught is going to be clear,

:31:32.:31:36.

but probably the next behind her are likely to go through as well. The

:31:37.:31:42.

danger is the people coming out in the third heat. It is easy for these

:31:43.:31:50.

two at the moment. The first two, Chepkoech and Jebet. And behind,

:31:51.:31:55.

Courtney Frerichs of the United States, second in the US trials. A

:31:56.:32:00.

gap opening out between her and Aisha Praught of Jamaica. The two

:32:01.:32:08.

leaders, out in front, along way clear. Frerichs in the water for the

:32:09.:32:15.

last time, and does it well. Aisha Praught with the chase now to try to

:32:16.:32:19.

get that last automatic qualifying place. Out in front, Chepkoech and

:32:20.:32:25.

Ruth Jebet, the Olympic champion. Chepkoech with a great record in

:32:26.:32:34.

this event. As does Kenya. The time is much, much quicker than the first

:32:35.:32:40.

heat. Frerichs over the line. Praught in about 9.25, which is a

:32:41.:32:46.

good deal faster than the fastest leaders from the first heat. Fente,

:32:47.:32:53.

and Kaya coming through. They are all fast. Perhaps even the Danish

:32:54.:32:59.

athlete coming through there. It is going to be tight. But Jebet, the

:33:00.:33:06.

Olympic champion, is off to have a chat with a few people. Chepkoech

:33:07.:33:12.

has done her job as well. They are safely through, as is Courtney

:33:13.:33:20.

Frerichs. With unrelenting rain, Shara Proctor

:33:21.:33:25.

takes to the runway for her second attempt to try and reach the

:33:26.:33:33.

qualifying mark of 6.70. Needs to find more. A better height. Slightly

:33:34.:33:37.

better distance, maybe. Proctor is behind. It is terrible

:33:38.:33:55.

conditions. Unlike Clichy will need the 6.70 that is automatic

:33:56.:34:00.

qualifying. Somewhere in the 6.20s. She's going to need more than that.

:34:01.:34:06.

Thinking on the penultimate and going out too high. Not going across

:34:07.:34:12.

the board horizontally. There is an optimum angle. There is a vertical

:34:13.:34:18.

element, and a horizontal. Look at that. 13th place. Only 12 make the

:34:19.:34:26.

final. Lorraine Ugen, looked really good in the first round. The second

:34:27.:34:31.

best jumper of this qualifying process so far. Behind Bartoletta.

:34:32.:34:39.

She knew she had gone over on the plasticine. She looks good. Running

:34:40.:34:46.

hard, running a bit rocky. Just over a extended there. 6.63. Second

:34:47.:34:54.

place. That might be good enough to get through. Almost certainly, given

:34:55.:35:03.

the conditions, but a foul for Lorraine Ugen. One more chance for

:35:04.:35:08.

automatic qualifying. You can see the pitch just on the edge of the

:35:09.:35:12.

shelter. Going well for Lorraine Ugen. Shara Proctor and Jazmin

:35:13.:35:20.

Sawyers the wrong side of the cut. Only 12 athletes to go through.

:35:21.:35:34.

Fifth place is likely to be enough to. It is tough there.? Is

:35:35.:35:47.

underfoot. Just to retain contact with the ground. And that is better.

:35:48.:36:01.

There is the white flag there. Just backs of the board there, Klishina.

:36:02.:36:07.

Just citing the board and running a little bit. She had the room,

:36:08.:36:14.

really. Got to run at the board and accelerate. But a lot tend to

:36:15.:36:18.

decelerate towards the end, but that is where you want to have a quick

:36:19.:36:25.

one, two rhythm of the board. Tough when it's raining. It puts an

:36:26.:36:29.

element of doubt in your mind. It is the best we've seen so far. 6.66 for

:36:30.:36:36.

Klishina. But still shy of automatic. A higher qualifying

:36:37.:36:45.

standard here. Maybe the conditions playing a part, in the fact that no

:36:46.:36:50.

athlete has gone beyond automatic qualifying. So Jazmin Sawyers. We

:36:51.:36:54.

have seen her raise her game when she needs to in the past on so many

:36:55.:37:00.

occasions. She is going to have to find half a metre here to improve

:37:01.:37:08.

her round one distance. Decelerated and jammed her foot in there. Hips

:37:09.:37:19.

back at the board, and slammed her foot in. That decelerated her at the

:37:20.:37:27.

board. You need 6.35 to be in the top 12 as it stands at a moment.

:37:28.:37:35.

Running in. It just blocks. You have to have a backward movement

:37:36.:37:44.

underneath you to carry the speed. Another field event under way. Nick

:37:45.:37:48.

Miller in the hammer. Another event that is going to be compromised in

:37:49.:37:54.

these conditions. Down the left sector for Miller there. A good

:37:55.:38:03.

start. Really good start. Bang on that auto qualifying line. Just in

:38:04.:38:09.

the centre. Just held on to this. Trying to make sure with his feet,

:38:10.:38:15.

maybe. In the conditions, that is a really good throw for Nick Miller.

:38:16.:38:23.

24 years of age. The British record-holder. 75.52, auto

:38:24.:38:29.

qualifying. A brilliant start for Nick Miller. Kept his arms really

:38:30.:38:36.

long on the turns. You just have to let the hammerhead go. The hammer

:38:37.:38:41.

releasing at around 60 miles an hour. He qualified so well at the

:38:42.:38:44.

World Championships last time around. That is job done. Job done

:38:45.:38:52.

indeed for Nick Miller. Books his place for Friday's final. Another

:38:53.:39:01.

chance of a medal. We haven't managed to convert on so many

:39:02.:39:06.

occasions. Just that one gold medal for Mo Farah, of course. Can Nick

:39:07.:39:10.

Miller do what Sophie Hitchon did last year? His lifetime best is

:39:11.:39:15.

going to be the kind of distance he needs. That is possibly one of his

:39:16.:39:22.

best throws ever, for me. Possibly. The only concern is that it was down

:39:23.:39:28.

the left-hand side. But in these wet conditions, job done. In you go. We

:39:29.:39:37.

are now lining up for the third heat of the 3000 metres women's

:39:38.:39:47.

steeplechase. All of those from Fente to Kaya are in qualifying

:39:48.:39:53.

positions. Much faster than the first heat. Rosie Clarke. Not the

:39:54.:40:03.

preparation she would have liked. She is new to the steeplechase.

:40:04.:40:08.

Started last year. A good 1500 metre runner. Ran her personal best. Then

:40:09.:40:15.

injury since then has affected her preparations. She is fit and healthy

:40:16.:40:24.

now, but a tough qualification for her. Top three, or six fastest

:40:25.:40:32.

losers. She's got Emma Coburn, the Olympic bronze medallist, against

:40:33.:40:35.

her. Fabian Schar lamp from Switzerland. Rosie got a great

:40:36.:40:51.

introduction. She's got some very good African runners, including this

:40:52.:40:57.

18-year-old, Chespol. A new African record-holder as a junior and as a

:40:58.:41:03.

senior. Phenomenal running earlier in the year. She won the Kenyan

:41:04.:41:08.

trial as well. Emma Coburn as well. Another couple of very good

:41:09.:41:13.

youngsters. Yavi, a Kenyan who now runs for Bahrain. We have Chemutai

:41:14.:41:23.

of Uganda, 18 years old. Where ever you let, some bright talents in this

:41:24.:41:31.

event. And Rosie Clarke. She picked up an injury back in May after the

:41:32.:41:38.

run in Stamford. Had a curtailed preparation. But she has a chance

:41:39.:41:54.

now and has to run. She were to finish fourth or fifth in this heat,

:41:55.:41:58.

that would be an incredible achievement. To get to the final is

:41:59.:42:04.

a tall order. It is. She missed a little bit of training, but then she

:42:05.:42:09.

was back out with the group in France, and it was good training. I

:42:10.:42:14.

saw some very good sessions from her that indicated she could go close to

:42:15.:42:18.

her personal best. She's going to have to do that, and keep moving if

:42:19.:42:23.

people don't keep the pace moving well. Something around 3.10 would be

:42:24.:42:33.

helpful. 3.10 would give you nine point 30, which is a little bit

:42:34.:42:39.

quicker than rosy's personal-best. She just needs to keep improving,

:42:40.:42:45.

getting quicker. She is a very good runner. If she gets to grips with

:42:46.:42:53.

the... O! She has fallen! I'm not quite sure what happened there.

:42:54.:42:59.

Don't panic. Don't panic. She will have got a bit of a shock there. She

:43:00.:43:06.

just needs to settle. Let's have another look. Let's see them coming

:43:07.:43:14.

into the barriers. I think LaCaze just came across a bit. Did she

:43:15.:43:21.

slipped? She lost all the Menton and went down onto her knees almost

:43:22.:43:26.

there. I wonder if she hurt her ankle as she landed on it. As she

:43:27.:43:32.

landed, you could see the pain on her face. She needs to not panic

:43:33.:43:38.

now. She is running well, so it is clearly not too serious. She just

:43:39.:43:44.

needs to get back in control of herself, stay in touch, and just to

:43:45.:43:47.

try to get that surge of adrenaline she will have got as she stumbled

:43:48.:43:53.

under control. She takes the barriers well, but she has been

:43:54.:43:59.

stuttering into them a bit. Once a better site of them. Her pace is

:44:00.:44:04.

pretty good. It's not really quick, but it is enough, if you like. A lot

:44:05.:44:10.

of the youngsters in there. Still coming to a stop there. She has got

:44:11.:44:15.

to stretch out off that barrier and pushed through. It is the energy you

:44:16.:44:21.

waste. It is OK recovering in these early laps, but you will pay for it

:44:22.:44:28.

in later laps. Chemutai and Yavi ahead of her. Yavi, the 17-year-old.

:44:29.:44:36.

I saw her pacemaking in Oslo and she actually missed the water jump. I

:44:37.:44:42.

think Assefa took her out. Rosie Clarke trying to hang on as the pace

:44:43.:44:47.

picks up. Still in this at the moment. America's Brittney Reese,

:44:48.:44:56.

champion in this stadium five years ago, lost out to Olympic gold last

:44:57.:45:03.

year to her team-mate by just two centimetres. A very tentative start

:45:04.:45:08.

to her world title campaign in the first round. Just shortened their

:45:09.:45:14.

slightly maybe. That looks like no improvement.

:45:15.:45:20.

She is putting the brakes on. Almost perfect, board, maybe she thought

:45:21.:45:27.

she was going to bow. Crowded herself a bit on the line and lost

:45:28.:45:33.

her leverage, take off. Tends to be slightly on top of herself when she

:45:34.:45:39.

jumps. 6.46. No improvement. Still in sixth place.

:45:40.:45:47.

Our new leader in this third heat is Emma Coburn. She is a bit of a hero

:45:48.:45:52.

of American distance running Emma Coburn, a bit of a poster girl for

:45:53.:45:56.

everything they have been doing over the last year, the medals they have

:45:57.:46:02.

been winning. Jager won a medal in the men's vent. She knows what that

:46:03.:46:08.

feels like. He will hope she can do better. The young African athlete,

:46:09.:46:18.

Yavi just 17. Chespol, only 18, run under nine minutes. Lacaze is

:46:19.:46:23.

committed. Rosie Clarke is still in. She is moving better now. Taking the

:46:24.:46:27.

barriers better. She is passing athletes. The pace was good enough.

:46:28.:46:33.

It is on her personal best, she would have to finish strongly, but

:46:34.:46:36.

she is running well. That will give her confidence as she is catching

:46:37.:46:42.

people. Taking the water jump better: I watched to see how she

:46:43.:46:46.

took that. The barriers on the flat. She has been hurdling them well. She

:46:47.:46:51.

is a good hurdler, but when he hit that water jump so badly, the NEC

:46:52.:46:55.

couple of times she stuttered going into it and looked uncomfortable

:46:56.:47:00.

landing. She looked better on that one, you can see the look of

:47:01.:47:04.

determination on her face, she knows she needs to move up and get more in

:47:05.:47:08.

contact with the group in front and pick off every one of those she can.

:47:09.:47:17.

I reckon if she could get in the top six finishers, maybe second or third

:47:18.:47:22.

fastest and run about 8.56 you would go through, but she will have to

:47:23.:47:27.

pick it up. The pace is going well now. Emma Coburn just slotting on to

:47:28.:47:33.

the back. Lacaze is in a great position, which is a long way back,

:47:34.:47:36.

Rosie Clarke, that effort she made in the mid 8, you can see they have

:47:37.:47:43.

picked up, the 3.9 kilometre and Rosie is struggling. She seems, she

:47:44.:47:49.

really fell, because I thought she had been back on the shoulder. She

:47:50.:47:54.

just didn't see that, that is a real shame. She had got back and now she

:47:55.:47:59.

needs to really really fight hard, but it is a tough, tough ask of her

:48:00.:48:04.

from here. I think that might be her World Championships over unless she

:48:05.:48:08.

can really find something big, now, over just two laps. Apologise to

:48:09.:48:13.

Rosie, I didn't see that down the back straight. Behind the hammer net

:48:14.:48:18.

as we look across. The pictures were on the leaders and it happened out

:48:19.:48:22.

our vision, that is why she had fallen away, you cannot pick up from

:48:23.:48:26.

that. It was, she was moving so well at that time. And certainly was in

:48:27.:48:30.

with an opportunity, as I said I was scanning to see what she needed to

:48:31.:48:34.

do. Sadly that opportunity seems to have gone. So Lacaze in the fourth

:48:35.:48:39.

qualifier or still in with a chance of coming in the top three here. The

:48:40.:48:44.

one who has dropped off is Diro, the young Ethopian who was fifth in the

:48:45.:48:48.

London Olympics is starting to go well. Chespol and Yavi, the two

:48:49.:48:54.

teenagers with that terrible technique but which is standing her

:48:55.:48:56.

in reasonable stead. Emma Coburn looks in control of this

:48:57.:49:13.

one, although she is struggling to stay with that gap. She doesn't

:49:14.:49:18.

enjoyed, she looks at the screen. We see Rosie Clarke looking down at the

:49:19.:49:23.

track. It is a substantial distance she has 20 make up. You can see her

:49:24.:49:30.

in the background entering into the home straight, and Chemutai is

:49:31.:49:34.

fading badly. She could have got Health Service up into conten tiong

:49:35.:49:38.

it is a shame. Most are chasing fastest loser spots but there is

:49:39.:49:42.

four at the front. I think they are going to go through. Probably Diro,

:49:43.:49:47.

so Lacaze probably doesn't need to worry. She is looking at the clock.

:49:48.:49:51.

I don't know how aware she is of whether she needs to sprint and

:49:52.:49:56.

chase them. These the three contenders. Chespol. Yavi, Coburn.

:49:57.:50:06.

The American, but Lacaze has run very well here indeed. She recently

:50:07.:50:13.

celebrated, think this week it was her birthday, turned 28 and running

:50:14.:50:17.

a big race here, so these four look safe. Three of them will qualify by

:50:18.:50:23.

rights. Lacaze will be pretty sure guaranteed a spot. She will be,

:50:24.:50:29.

looking at the clock. She is going to try and outsprintawayy. Do they

:50:30.:50:39.

take it safely? Yes. Chespol. Cow burn and Lacaze, the clock stopped

:50:40.:50:44.

about 9.27. Yavi will go through, Diro will and behind them, it's a

:50:45.:50:53.

scrap on, we will teaty that up. That is sad for Rosie Clarke,

:50:54.:50:57.

without that fall, she wouldn't have been too far away. She, two

:50:58.:51:03.

incidents for Rosie, the first time round in the water jump where she

:51:04.:51:06.

pretty much stopped herself landing on two feet and a really bad clatter

:51:07.:51:12.

into the hurdle on the back straight behind the hammer net. Put paid to

:51:13.:51:19.

any chance she had. I think we are go, we will accept there will be

:51:20.:51:22.

more opportunities for Rosie Clarke, she is just learning the event, and

:51:23.:51:29.

well, for her chances, they disappeared there, so sad, all the

:51:30.:51:33.

hard work she has put in, to get there, Paula. It is going to be

:51:34.:51:36.

tough, we will come back to in in a second. Long jump first. Yes, Great

:51:37.:51:41.

Britain's Shara Proctor is on the runway for the third time. She knows

:51:42.:51:48.

exactly what she needs to qualify. At the moment, 6.43 is in 12th

:51:49.:51:57.

place. You can see she is in... So this the final chance to get

:51:58.:52:01.

involved. A final on Friday. Than is very

:52:02.:52:06.

high. It is better. This is going to be close. This is a nervous wait at

:52:07.:52:11.

this point. You want to see, it gets a white flag. That is the critical

:52:12.:52:16.

thing. So better speed. Better commitment.

:52:17.:52:22.

Reaching there, she was way more committed in this jump Had that knee

:52:23.:52:27.

injury at the British champs. It is like a car accident that resulted in

:52:28.:52:31.

damage to her knee, and hasn't competed since. It is 6.45 for Shara

:52:32.:52:37.

Proctor. A nervous wait for her. Because she is in 12th place, that

:52:38.:52:42.

may still not be enough, because there is lots of jumpers who can go

:52:43.:52:47.

beyond that. At the moment she is in, but it is not guaranteed. It a

:52:48.:52:54.

nervous wait. There are 15 people after you. Some are ahead, you have

:52:55.:52:59.

that wait and Jazmin Sawyers as well, so can a Brit not knock a Brit

:53:00.:53:08.

out? We saw Nick Miller qualify in his

:53:09.:53:12.

first throw. Something this man couldn't do.

:53:13.:53:26.

She fallible. Didn't qat -- qualify. This looked better for Fajdek. He is

:53:27.:53:43.

such a resounding favourite. But has shown that he can get it wrong. 12

:53:44.:53:49.

consecutive wins last year and then a loss and no qualification in the

:53:50.:53:52.

Olympics. Doesn't like qualifying, I don't think. He will be happy with

:53:53.:54:01.

that. Lead qualifier. They don't even have to collect

:54:02.:54:08.

their own hammers. Look at that. When it gets back there there will

:54:09.:54:12.

be somewhere with a towel that cleans it, hangs it back up. You

:54:13.:54:16.

don't get them in training though. No. I will let the athletes fetch

:54:17.:54:21.

their own. Did you fetch your own javelin

:54:22.:54:27.

Steve? More of that in a second. Lorraine Ugen. She is taking her

:54:28.:54:35.

third attempt here, surprisingly, I have to say because she is the third

:54:36.:54:38.

best qualifier overall, maybe just wanted to check this run out. This

:54:39.:54:42.

is fast on the approach. That is is a big jump. I think it's a foul

:54:43.:54:47.

though. That was really committed. She looks good. I am optimistic

:54:48.:54:53.

about her. The difficulty is when she runs faster her stride lengthens

:54:54.:54:56.

and that will creep you into the board. Yes she committed but you can

:54:57.:55:01.

see that lengthening and slight deceleration into the board, but,

:55:02.:55:06.

fingers crossed 6.63 will be good enough. It is likely, well it is

:55:07.:55:13.

almost assured to be good enough. Third best qualifier so far.

:55:14.:55:20.

Lorraine Ugen looking really good. The rain has really been persistent

:55:21.:55:26.

here this afternoon. Jazmin Sawyers, taking shelter, ahead of her third

:55:27.:55:33.

attempt. Terrible condition, but something

:55:34.:55:36.

for the athletes to try and make the best of. While we are waiting for

:55:37.:55:42.

Jazmin Sawyers, this was Rosie Clarke, this was early on. Just came

:55:43.:55:48.

to a bit of a stop then, a bit of a stumble, landed with two feet. And

:55:49.:55:56.

then, a worse fall, much worse fall later, so she finished 9.69 this

:55:57.:56:02.

ninth plate. Three fastest losers from that heat. Sadly Schlumpf of

:56:03.:56:06.

Switzerland just missing out. Another foul. Look at the rain

:56:07.:56:32.

running off the flag there, that was a solid jump from Klishina. He is

:56:33.:56:40.

looking in good shape. And the main protagonist Reese, Bartoletta, two

:56:41.:56:46.

previous World Champions, Klishina, way beyond the board there for

:56:47.:56:50.

Klishina. She is the lead, that 6.66 on the

:56:51.:57:00.

second round is the best. So we have got another medal ceremony and big

:57:01.:57:05.

smile from the American sap Kendricks in what was a thrilling

:57:06.:57:19.

final yesterday evening. So Kendricks stands on top of the

:57:20.:57:25.

world, ahead of the Pole. Surprise silver. Another World Championships

:57:26.:57:28.

has eluded hip. Bubka. He competed flawlessly last night.

:57:29.:57:43.

And now he has his National Anthem to enjoy that gold medal.

:57:44.:58:03.

The third time we have heard the American National Anthem. It was

:58:04.:59:12.

Gatlin in the sprint and Kendricks now, another gold for the USA, the

:59:13.:59:25.

world record holder. Great performance there, but the man of

:59:26.:59:31.

the moment, is Sam Kendricks, he has been brilliant all summer and

:59:32.:59:34.

managed to convert it here at the World Championships.

:59:35.:59:38.

And as expected take that gold medal.

:59:39.:59:44.

Watching on from the studio seeing his fellow Frenchman pick up the

:59:45.:59:53.

bronze there, is Pierre Bosse who is the proud owner of a World

:59:54.:59:58.

Championship medal. Congratulations. It doesn't fit me well. Sorry about

:59:59.:00:00.

that. slightly maybe. That looks like no

:00:01.:00:07.

improvement. The great thing about goals is that

:00:08.:00:17.

it goes with anything. It looks better on you! It was an amazing

:00:18.:00:22.

race, and for you to come from the fourth in Rio last year, and then

:00:23.:00:27.

find yourself at the top of the podium... What has happened in the

:00:28.:00:31.

last year? Many things. Nobody knows, but I had a very bad car

:00:32.:00:37.

accident in October, so it was a very long trip to come back, after

:00:38.:00:42.

all of the trouble that came back after that. I changed also my coach.

:00:43.:00:45.

I've been in Australia two months, I've been everywhere, and I've

:00:46.:01:04.

discovered many things. This is my face you see now. My hair is moving!

:01:05.:01:07.

Never mind your hair! What about your race tactics? They came off,

:01:08.:01:10.

didn't they? At this point, I knew, somehow, that I was going to win. A

:01:11.:01:13.

feeling came over everything. I was dreaming at this point. What were

:01:14.:01:20.

you dreaming? It was a good dreams. I was saying, you know this

:01:21.:01:24.

nightmare where somebody is chasing you that never catches you? You know

:01:25.:01:30.

about this nightmare. Everybody has it. Somebody is behind but never

:01:31.:01:35.

catches you, and you wake up and you are sweating because he never catch

:01:36.:01:40.

you. You are running and sweating, but it never happened. You were

:01:41.:01:46.

having an anxiety dream as you were running? Yes! But when it was over,

:01:47.:01:52.

I couldn't believe it. I'm learning a lot about 800 metre runners. Kyle

:01:53.:01:58.

Langford was with us a few minutes ago, who came fourth. I love that

:01:59.:02:03.

guy. He was describing what went through his head. For the two laps

:02:04.:02:11.

of that race, you do think of a lot! I have known that guy for a long

:02:12.:02:16.

time. I think we have the same age. He used to train in Paris a couple

:02:17.:02:23.

of weeks ago. So I crossed him there in Paris where I train. We are

:02:24.:02:30.

friends of the track, but we are enemies on the track. This guy, it

:02:31.:02:35.

is like the power of the crowd. The crowd love this guy, Mo Farah. Of

:02:36.:02:43.

course. But Kyle Langford is better! Kyle Langford wants to be the new Mo

:02:44.:02:49.

Farah. I think so, of 800. But he needs to beat me before that. That's

:02:50.:02:59.

true. But he will. Pretty soon. He's a talented guy. The way he overtook

:03:00.:03:05.

everybody on the last line. He deserved a medal, actually. .

:03:06.:03:10.

Incredible. And hopefully you will experience that home crowd when the

:03:11.:03:14.

Olympics come to Paris. Tell me about your friend who travelled for

:03:15.:03:20.

13 hours to come to watch you. My friend? It actually wasn't my best

:03:21.:03:28.

friend. He missed a date, a really bad date, so he called me before the

:03:29.:03:31.

final, the night before, about midnight. He had a beer in his hand,

:03:32.:03:42.

and he said, you need to get out here, man. You need to relax. You

:03:43.:03:48.

need to party with me, I said. He said, no. Yes. And that was it. He

:03:49.:03:54.

just came. He was on the train for hours later. A great friend. He will

:03:55.:04:00.

probably want to follow you around the world now. You are world

:04:01.:04:06.

champion. Enjoy it! I do, but I can't. Nobody told me how! Michael,

:04:07.:04:14.

tell me how to do it! Michael Jonsson is in homework corner. it

:04:15.:04:24.

fits you. You wear it well. I think it is sinking in. He is a great guy.

:04:25.:04:31.

You should hang around here more often. We are enjoying having you.

:04:32.:04:39.

Thanks. I appreciate it. You were next door on Japanese TV a moment

:04:40.:04:45.

ago, but I'm glad you came in. To speak English is always good to try,

:04:46.:04:50.

for French men. You are doing very well. Thanks to my girlfriend in

:04:51.:04:56.

Australia right there. Because of her, I speak English. Glad she got a

:04:57.:05:02.

mention! Lets get back on the track for the 5000 metre heats. Mo time!

:05:03.:05:11.

Steve Cram. From one boss to another... I told

:05:12.:05:18.

you that he was a character, Bosse. Mo Farah has one gold medal, like

:05:19.:05:26.

him. We have to heats of the men's 5000 metres. The first five and the

:05:27.:05:30.

five fastest will go through to the final. I think this heat is a bit

:05:31.:05:41.

tougher. The other Brit is probably pleased that Mo is in this one. Mo

:05:42.:05:48.

never worries about his heats. I saw him yesterday. Looked very relaxed.

:05:49.:05:53.

Said he had recovered and was looking forward to it. He has plenty

:05:54.:06:00.

of good opposition here, including Rop, the former Kenyan running for

:06:01.:06:06.

Bahrain. The world indoor champion as well. I saw him run a very good

:06:07.:06:18.

1500 metres. Here is Mo's training partner, Bashir Abdi. Wherever Mo

:06:19.:06:24.

goes, he goes. Except in the races. Not quick enough. To Lang on the

:06:25.:06:32.

inside. One or two to watch out for. Kiplangat. Address very good, the

:06:33.:06:39.

Ethiopian. Some very good Ethiopians. We have Jacob Kiplimo of

:06:40.:06:47.

Uganda as well. People have been getting

:06:48.:07:04.

disqualified all over the place for standing on the line. One or two

:07:05.:07:10.

tonight as well. A lot of young talent here. A bit of a Changing of

:07:11.:07:17.

the Guard of 5000 metres. I don't think it will happen quickly enough

:07:18.:07:21.

to challenge Mo Farah, but we might see a couple of the youngsters in

:07:22.:07:26.

this race coming on and developing. For the time being, Mo Farah is

:07:27.:07:32.

still the man to beat. He won't mind these very British conditions. Chile

:07:33.:07:40.

and wet. There are 12 men in this heat to have run under 13.15 this

:07:41.:07:46.

year. If they wanted to, they could make this a tough heat. Tire them

:07:47.:07:52.

out a little bit more, because he's run the 10,000 metres. There is

:07:53.:07:57.

another race to come, so why hang around. A bit of rain is not bad for

:07:58.:08:05.

distance running. No surprise perhaps that Kifle has gone out

:08:06.:08:10.

hard. These are great conditions for distance running. A cool, rainy

:08:11.:08:16.

evening for the new and Essex Beagle. Mo Farah doing what he's

:08:17.:08:20.

done many times in this part of London, running round the streets

:08:21.:08:29.

round here. We are looking forward to him going through the motions

:08:30.:08:34.

tonight, and then emerging in the top five, or one of the fastest

:08:35.:08:40.

losers. This is a hard event to run, because every single lap of this

:08:41.:08:49.

track tires you out, and all you get for it is the chance to run another

:08:50.:08:54.

12.5 times around the tracks for the final. You have to keep your

:08:55.:08:59.

concentration, because sometimes you think it is easy, but it isn't.

:09:00.:09:05.

Kifle got them moving, and he has stepped aside. You wouldn't expect

:09:06.:09:11.

to Lang to be able to push them on, but Kifle ran in the 10,000 metres.

:09:12.:09:17.

He's decided to keep them going. The long jump qualifying is still going

:09:18.:09:25.

on. Jazmin Sawyers knows she has a chance here. She will need a jump

:09:26.:09:32.

further than the 6.45. The coach watching on. A purposeful look on

:09:33.:09:39.

the face of Jazmin Sawyers. The last jump of qualifying. No. That's not

:09:40.:09:50.

going to be enough. No, unfortunately. Again, gets very high

:09:51.:09:55.

and drops. Hasn't worked out well this year. Last year, Jazmin Sawyers

:09:56.:10:01.

worked with a different coach. Changed coach this year. Going up

:10:02.:10:07.

too high and not carrying the speed across the board. Second in the

:10:08.:10:12.

Commonwealth Games, eighth in the Olympics last year. She is a major

:10:13.:10:22.

champs competitor. 6.34, not enough. 18th place. Her world champs is

:10:23.:10:27.

over. The race is on here in the 5000

:10:28.:10:34.

metre heats. Mo Farah having to keep moving. The crowd is responding to

:10:35.:10:43.

it. Kejelcha, a very good Ethiopians. The pace has moved on.

:10:44.:10:54.

Kifle picked it up. Fifa got things moving again. Kiplimo, the

:10:55.:11:00.

cross-country champion, also. It was not that quick the first few hundred

:11:01.:11:06.

metres. It was 600 before they got moving. They have moved it on a bit

:11:07.:11:12.

now. That is the right thing to do. They are giving themselves extra

:11:13.:11:15.

chances, because there are some very good athlete in this field. The

:11:16.:11:22.

world Junior cross country champion, Kiplimo. He's only 16, half the age

:11:23.:11:29.

of Mo Farah. We will see a lot of him in the future. Kifle from

:11:30.:11:35.

Eritrea. They are making it a little bit hard for Mo. He knows what he

:11:36.:11:41.

has to do. To Ethiopians ahead of him are talented athletes as well.

:11:42.:11:47.

He's got to be on his game and apply himself. He's not got to resent the

:11:48.:11:53.

fact that he's got to run 12.5 laps of the track to get into the final.

:11:54.:12:02.

You've got to do it. Never too much to worry about for Mo, if he keeps

:12:03.:12:07.

on his feet. He will keep an eye on where the qualifying positions are.

:12:08.:12:12.

He will keep an eye on the ones he has to worry about. Ibrahimov just

:12:13.:12:24.

behind him, who in years gone by, almost outkicked Mo Farah, but not

:12:25.:12:31.

any more. Ibrahimov, sounds like a football name! Eric Jenkins is

:12:32.:12:39.

having a good season, the American in the all blue in about six place.

:12:40.:12:47.

Kip gel car will stop I saw him run a 1500 metres before. It was against

:12:48.:12:54.

a very fast guy, and he almost out kicked him. Why do we not see that

:12:55.:13:04.

in the 5000 metres from kip gel car? He has the pace. Mo never seems to

:13:05.:13:13.

worry about him. On paper, you wonder if he could give Mo Farah

:13:14.:13:22.

some problems. His 1500 metre pace is getting closer to Mo Farah's, but

:13:23.:13:27.

I don't see him as anything to worry about. He is proving he can win

:13:28.:13:35.

races, and tonight, he is latching on to Mo Farah and will just follow

:13:36.:13:41.

him. You can see the Eritrean deciding to push it along. And Mo

:13:42.:13:49.

Farah. Being tracked by those useful... More than useful,

:13:50.:13:57.

actually! Two Ethiopians are extremely good runners. Mo Farah

:13:58.:14:03.

doing what he needs to do. He loves the stadium. On a wet night in

:14:04.:14:07.

Newham, he has been here many times before. Watching in the studio is

:14:08.:14:16.

Paula. This is playing once more into Mo's hands. They have slowed

:14:17.:14:22.

down. It's definitely is. He's doing absolutely what he needs to do and

:14:23.:14:27.

nothing more than that. You can hear a roar. Is that for him? He is

:14:28.:14:33.

controlling them, and not doing anything at all to test him. You

:14:34.:14:44.

probably wouldn't expect them to. Good news for Andy Butchart. He will

:14:45.:14:49.

be keeping an eye on this in the tunnel. They have slowed again.

:14:50.:14:55.

Kiplimo, the youngster. There are three or four very good youngsters

:14:56.:15:00.

in this. Mo Farah tucked in the middle with his training partner,

:15:01.:15:08.

Abdi, on his right. The Ethiopian, Rop, getting closer on his outside.

:15:09.:15:14.

Sometimes it takes a while to extricate himself, but once he gets

:15:15.:15:18.

moving, he's pretty quick. Five to go.

:15:19.:15:22.

Gisamoda leading on the inside. Ibrahimov, kej, Mo Farah, side

:15:23.:15:31.

stepping there neatly, he has been tripped a few times in the final of

:15:32.:15:36.

the 10,000 metres and if Rio, and during the heats of the 5,000 last

:15:37.:15:41.

time. He has such strength, inner body strength, his core stability is

:15:42.:15:46.

really strong, so when he does get off balance he can balance himself

:15:47.:15:53.

up again. His speed is never in question, and it is going through

:15:54.:15:58.

the motions here, but the pace, beginning to lift a little. The last

:15:59.:16:02.

200 metres is beginning to lift. That lap of 66 is not doing any

:16:03.:16:06.

damage to anybody. It is comfortable for the vast majority of this field.

:16:07.:16:11.

A bit of pushing and shoving. The Canadian Knight got a bit of an

:16:12.:16:16.

elbow from Edris, he is trying to follow Farah. Edris can get.

:16:17.:16:20.

Kejelcha can kick, of course Mo Farah can kick, what about the

:16:21.:16:23.

others though, they are lining up, four laps to go. Gisamoda, trying to

:16:24.:16:28.

put a bit of pace on at the front. They are not interested in him. It

:16:29.:16:38.

St these two Ethopians. Ibrahimov on the inside. Kiplimo coming out. The

:16:39.:16:42.

young cross-country champion looking for some room. They are all still

:16:43.:16:46.

there. They are bunched. They have a chance. There is too many of them.

:16:47.:16:52.

Far too many here. Now, when you get in a group like this, you know there

:16:53.:16:55.

is only five to qualify. The advantage goes to the second heat.

:16:56.:16:58.

They can see what time you have to run and they can work it between

:16:59.:17:02.

them. Now, some of these athletes are going to panic. Somebody is

:17:03.:17:13.

going to try and make a run for it. Mow is in a good position. Edris,

:17:14.:17:18.

and Kiplimo there, but really there is far too many for comfort here as

:17:19.:17:22.

they come down the straight, three laps to go.

:17:23.:17:28.

Kiplimo having a look across at Mo Farah. Rop has always been in a good

:17:29.:17:35.

position. Kejelcha, dangerous. In more ways than one, the long legs of

:17:36.:17:42.

his sometimes can be a danger. Mow likes to keep out of trouble, make

:17:43.:17:46.

others come wide. Give himself room. Exactly the right thing do when you

:17:47.:17:50.

are in a group like this. They are all lining up behind Mo Farah. Look

:17:51.:17:54.

at McDonald, the Australian who has had a cracking year, he thinks we

:17:55.:17:59.

need to get this moving. Jenkin, Edris,ed Ritz has been back and

:18:00.:18:04.

forward and an elbow in the tummy from Rop. Some pushing and shoving.

:18:05.:18:10.

A few words exchanged. 11 minutes through 4,000 metre, so that is not

:18:11.:18:15.

very quick at all. Mo Farah knows, it is only first five to qualify.

:18:16.:18:19.

Now he moves on the outside. He looks ahead. He has been watching

:18:20.:18:23.

the screen all round and the screen has only been telling him one thing,

:18:24.:18:26.

you can't relax, there is too many here for comfort. Here they go. Two

:18:27.:18:32.

laps to go, ebbmove starts to make a move on the inside. Kejelcha goes

:18:33.:18:38.

with him. Edris is loitering. Mo is in a good place. He drifts yards the

:18:39.:18:42.

front. Put himself right and he will make sure that he will only do

:18:43.:18:46.

enough on the last lap and three-quarters.

:18:47.:18:52.

I get the feeling there will be one of the bigger names comes a cropper

:18:53.:18:55.

here. I don't mean in terms of falling over or anything, I just

:18:56.:18:58.

mean there is always someone when it is this slow who is quicker than you

:18:59.:19:03.

think. Not expected to be able to sprint but can. Kejelcha and Farah.

:19:04.:19:08.

Edris on the outside. Abdi on the inside. Kifle is there. The tannian

:19:09.:19:14.

still getting a shove there and moves round the outside. Gisamoda.

:19:15.:19:18.

So mow controlling it. He doesn't want to lose that position now,

:19:19.:19:22.

there is still plenty in with a chance. He does this really well

:19:23.:19:26.

though, when he gets near enough to the front and he starts to decide it

:19:27.:19:29.

is time to take control, now you will watch him, he won't want to

:19:30.:19:33.

concede any position here. He won't want to do anything that makes him

:19:34.:19:37.

have to have an extra hard run on the last lap. 12.32. Let us see how

:19:38.:19:43.

fast it is. Kejelcha looks comed forable. Mo looks strong. On the

:19:44.:19:47.

outside he is having to pass an athlete. A that is the danger. His

:19:48.:19:52.

training mate on the inside and Edris coming, Mo is looking and

:19:53.:19:56.

counting. There is still one too many. Only five to go through by

:19:57.:20:01.

rights. They are lapping runners all the time. Farah checking his

:20:02.:20:05.

training partner on the inside. Rop is coming on the outside. Kiplimo is

:20:06.:20:10.

there. Jenkinses of the USA is coming. So is Knight up, Canada.

:20:11.:20:19.

Still haven't got themselves clear. Top five, Kejelcha, Farah, Edris, Mo

:20:20.:20:23.

is having to work hard but he is checking round. Kifle is there, Abdi

:20:24.:20:28.

trying to hang in, Knight of Canada, finishing quickly, he will get in

:20:29.:20:35.

the top five. Kejelcha, Farah, Edris, Knight, Kifle, they are your

:20:36.:20:45.

top five. 13.30. Do you know, you just... When you

:20:46.:20:50.

watch races like this you are waiting for something to happen, you

:20:51.:20:53.

know, whether someone is tripping or falling. I get nervous when there is

:20:54.:20:58.

so many of them, you know, they know where they want to be, nobody wants

:20:59.:21:04.

to run that hard on the last lap, if mow is included in that, I am sow

:21:05.:21:08.

pleased. It is almost a sense of leaf he has got through OK. The most

:21:09.:21:12.

nervous I got is when you said somebody is going to come a cropper.

:21:13.:21:18.

I know you meant it from qualifying. I thought my goodness, remember hen

:21:19.:21:23.

he got tripped in Rio. That was comfortable running from Mo Farah.

:21:24.:21:27.

Here they r Kejelcha, looking comfortable. Mo checking inside.

:21:28.:21:32.

Outside, Edris is ready there, Abdi on the inside. His training partner.

:21:33.:21:38.

Here comes Kifle andmove was pushed and stumbled there Mo is relaxing,

:21:39.:21:43.

he knows he has done enough and Knight is coming through, Kifle on

:21:44.:21:48.

the inside, in the green vest, Mo doing enough, Kejelcha trying to

:21:49.:21:51.

prove a point but Mo didn't recognise that. Didn't let him, you

:21:52.:21:57.

are got going to psychological benefit from that. You didn't beat

:21:58.:22:01.

me. You beat me but I am not bothered. Kejelcha, a very good

:22:02.:22:06.

athlete. Edris, very good. Mo looking round, in control as we have

:22:07.:22:12.

seen him so often. Comfortable but 5,000 metres heats. No matter how

:22:13.:22:17.

steady you run, you rush at the end, it really does tire you. It is a

:22:18.:22:21.

tiring one but now he has qualified for the final. That is the one we

:22:22.:22:25.

are waiting for. Kejelcha will be a danger, Edris will be a danger but

:22:26.:22:29.

Mo, there he is saying he will come through, you can't control it in the

:22:30.:22:33.

home straight, it doesn't matter what else happens. Well done,

:22:34.:22:39.

comfortable qualification, we can rook forward to Saturday with

:22:40.:22:42.

excitement. It was Knight the Canadian who

:22:43.:22:46.

surprised everybody, the 21-year-old gets in there in the top five. The

:22:47.:22:50.

others will have to wait and see, whether or not how fast the second

:22:51.:22:55.

race goes. Let us hear his view on that race.

:22:56.:23:03.

Well done. You have the adoration of the crowd and reDevly so. How is the

:23:04.:23:08.

body? A bit tired, but it is all good. I have to recover now, and, it

:23:09.:23:13.

was a tough run from the 10k, to come out again, to qualify, it is a

:23:14.:23:17.

good thing. I could just go back and rest up and see what I can do.

:23:18.:23:21.

Mentally how difficult is it when you had the big high of a 10k win

:23:22.:23:25.

and you have to level just out to do it again? It is pretty difficult to

:23:26.:23:30.

pick yourself back up again, but this is what it is about. You have

:23:31.:23:33.

to pick yourself up. You are not going to win. You have to recover,

:23:34.:23:38.

switch off, turn the lights off and get into the zone. You have done it

:23:39.:23:42.

time and time again, we have seen that. I know Brendan was talking

:23:43.:23:47.

about every step is like a reluctant step. A necessary evil? You have to

:23:48.:23:51.

do it. That is what it takes as he said, no-one is going to get it for

:23:52.:23:55.

you, do it for you for the rounds, you have to do it through the

:23:56.:23:59.

rounds, the rounds are the hardest part because you have done it and to

:24:00.:24:03.

come back. For the final and another piece of history if you can do the

:24:04.:24:08.

double again. You cement your place in history again, how about that?

:24:09.:24:13.

Definitely. Everything is possible. That is what I said. That is my

:24:14.:24:19.

philosophy, that is how I have been training. That is what the Kenyans

:24:20.:24:23.

say, you can't dream of something unless you do something about it. I

:24:24.:24:27.

have been given a chance in life. I work hard for it and I achieve what

:24:28.:24:31.

I have to through hard work and keep grafting. To the kids out there you

:24:32.:24:35.

can be like me and we have to start thinking about how we can get the

:24:36.:24:41.

next generation and see if we can leave a legacy behind. You are a

:24:42.:24:48.

true inspiration Mo. Good luck in the 10k -- in the final.

:24:49.:24:53.

While all that was happening there was some bad news over in the long

:24:54.:24:58.

jump. For Great Britain. Shara Proctor, she was in 12th place, with

:24:59.:25:06.

a jump of 6.45 but the multi-eventer Pratt of Germany did this.

:25:07.:25:14.

-- Rath. Did this. It was enough to knock Shara down into 13th place.

:25:15.:25:23.

Only 12 make qualifying, so real disappointment to come so close,

:25:24.:25:28.

Salman-Rath, that jump six metres 52. Justed 6.5 in the heptathlon.

:25:29.:25:36.

Finished eight overall, it is only a few days ago she was running an 800.

:25:37.:25:41.

A bit long on the last step but enough to carry her in. Look how

:25:42.:25:47.

happy she is. Sixth best qualifier and well, only one Briton, there she

:25:48.:25:55.

is. Lorraine Ugen, really good jump. Look, nobody jumped beyond 6.70. The

:25:56.:26:01.

auto qualifier. We can't remember the last time that happened.

:26:02.:26:08.

Klishina the best of the jumpers and two Americans Reese and Bartoletta,

:26:09.:26:11.

definitely contenders for gold as is Lorraine Ugen, goes into Friday's

:26:12.:26:17.

final. So the rain continues to fall, but

:26:18.:26:23.

the athletics is coming thick and fast, some hot action still to come.

:26:24.:26:29.

Mo Farah there, you know, great, a great line from Bren. You have to do

:26:30.:26:34.

it to get in the final. In a way it's a procession but it is still

:26:35.:26:37.

hard work for him. It is. It is hard work because anything can happen.

:26:38.:26:41.

You need to stay out of trouble. There was a big bunch of people, Mo

:26:42.:26:46.

controlled that race, it probably will have, he would have liked to

:26:47.:26:51.

have his legs to have a run out. Without a doubt, down that last

:26:52.:26:57.

200-metre he was looking out for his training partner, Abdi and trying to

:26:58.:27:01.

to make sure he didn't cut him off. Abdi was run out by Knight. He was

:27:02.:27:06.

looking over his shoulder to make sure he was doing the best he could

:27:07.:27:11.

for him, which not dodgy tack Dix because he was fine in in and in

:27:12.:27:15.

control, but wear and giving himself a bit more to think about perhaps.

:27:16.:27:19.

It shows how comfortable he was and how much in control. The danger was

:27:20.:27:23.

they were lapping runners and as they were people would not have

:27:24.:27:28.

space to come through, as they settled after they went round. That

:27:29.:27:32.

is where he was making sure. Butchart is going in the next one

:27:33.:27:37.

and Mark Scott. Andy Butchart has made great progress over the last

:27:38.:27:42.

year, and looking in great shape, through the winter, and, coming

:27:43.:27:45.

through the seasons so far, he will expect to make this final and push

:27:46.:27:50.

Mo and the rest all the way. He will expect to make this final, he needs

:27:51.:27:55.

to run it well, he needs to judge it right but they have theed advantage

:27:56.:27:59.

of knowing what they are aiming for for the fastest losers spot. He is

:28:00.:28:06.

from Dunblane. You don't get a tan like that, do you Andy? You can go

:28:07.:28:13.

to a salon. It is not a big place, just north of Stirling but what a

:28:14.:28:20.

sporting pedigree it has, the Murray brothers and Andy Butchart. If you

:28:21.:28:23.

look at the season's bests time, we will talk about it in a moment.

:28:24.:28:27.

There are six men who have gone quicker this season in this heat.

:28:28.:28:33.

The big news as we look at the line up is Gebrhiwet is not starting. He

:28:34.:28:40.

is still rocking the tash, you can barely see it but it is there.

:28:41.:28:45.

Ringer the German and Menjo, not a strong Kenyan line up over the to

:28:46.:28:50.

heats. Mark Scott the Yorkshireman, who is at college in the States at

:28:51.:28:56.

the University of Tulsa. He has a good kick, so I think his best

:28:57.:29:00.

chance might be if this is a slower heat, and he can take his chances to

:29:01.:29:05.

the end, but again, everyone here knows what has to be done in terms

:29:06.:29:16.

of times. You saw Rutto. Hill gets the full introduction, a man not far

:29:17.:29:24.

away from 13 minutes. Barega. The world youth champion

:29:25.:29:30.

here over 3,000 metres. The Ethopian talent comes through at 17, 18, 19,

:29:31.:29:36.

it is astonishing and Andy Butchart up against this line up. So too Mark

:29:37.:29:42.

Scott. We saw in Rio with that sixth place finish, what Butchart can do.

:29:43.:29:49.

To make the final was his first objective, and then see what happens

:29:50.:29:59.

in that final. Six place in the Olympics was great for Butchart, but

:30:00.:30:04.

it made a lot of people think that he was the next Mo Farah. There's

:30:05.:30:09.

not going to be another Mo Farah in Great Britain for a long time, but

:30:10.:30:15.

he is a great British athlete. He is, and that run in Rio was

:30:16.:30:19.

absolutely fantastic. The confidence he picked up from that has good him

:30:20.:30:28.

in good stead. Every one of these athletes apart from one has one well

:30:29.:30:40.

faster than 13.30 four 5000 metres, which is the speed of the previous

:30:41.:30:45.

heat. So they could well qualify. I think it would be a good idea if

:30:46.:30:49.

they worked the lap between them. They are well on schedule. 65 second

:30:50.:30:59.

laps, they will run well under 13.30, which would mean that ten of

:31:00.:31:04.

these athletes could qualify. I would advise these athletes to share

:31:05.:31:16.

the place, and keep it faster no faster than 65. There is an

:31:17.:31:19.

advantage to running the second heat, and tonight these guys have

:31:20.:31:24.

that advantage, and it's a big one. The first heat was slow, and this

:31:25.:31:29.

one is going faster. It's down to a few of these athletes to do what

:31:30.:31:34.

they need to do. The Ugandan out in front. Rutto. He won the Kenyan

:31:35.:31:48.

trials. Had a quick run in Boston in June, just outside 13 minutes. But

:31:49.:31:53.

some very disappointing runs as well. The Norwegian decides to pick

:31:54.:31:59.

up the pace a little bit, Moen. He knows what he has to do. He thinks

:32:00.:32:05.

his only chance is to go through as one of the fastest losers, so lifted

:32:06.:32:12.

the pace a bit. Bay can easily run 65 seconds for these 12.5 laps, and

:32:13.:32:18.

so they should, apply themselves and share it between them. It makes it

:32:19.:32:25.

much easier task. We could have two Britons in the final, to add to Mo

:32:26.:32:30.

Farah. It would be wonderful to see two or three Brits in the final of

:32:31.:32:39.

the 5000 metres. 2.44 for the first 1000 metres. That is OK. If you are

:32:40.:32:50.

looking at the splits, 2.40. All of these athletes know, they will have

:32:51.:32:58.

seen the times, and they know what needs to be done. Most of these

:32:59.:33:01.

athletes are capable of going below 13 point 30, the winning time of

:33:02.:33:11.

that previous heat. Andy Butchart in sixth place at the moment. Five go

:33:12.:33:17.

through automatically. On the inside there, a very confident young

:33:18.:33:21.

Scotsman with a great future ahead of him, Andy Butchart. I know how he

:33:22.:33:30.

feels about distance running. I know how he feels about his future.

:33:31.:33:36.

Certainly, he has chances to take over the mantle that will come when

:33:37.:33:41.

Mo steps of the track. This young man has a great future ahead of him

:33:42.:33:46.

on the track, on the roads and for the country, following that recent

:33:47.:33:53.

tradition of developing athletes in Scotland. They have some real top

:33:54.:33:57.

athletes in Scotland, and he's definitely one of them. Moen doing a

:33:58.:34:05.

good job in the lead. Mark Scott is one of them as well, from Richmond

:34:06.:34:09.

Harriers. His first major international event.

:34:10.:34:22.

The women's shot put final about to start. It's going to be a real

:34:23.:34:38.

ding-dong battle. If it's anything like the men's, it's going to be a

:34:39.:34:46.

real tussle. I mentioned Yang Gao. This is Lijao Gong, the world

:34:47.:34:54.

leader. Anything over 18 metres in these conditions would be very good

:34:55.:35:00.

to start with. This will take the lead so far. The lead so far is

:35:01.:35:09.

Anita Marton, with 18.50. Yang Gao, lots of silvers and bronzes over the

:35:10.:35:15.

last arcade. Never has she taken gold in a global major. This is

:35:16.:35:21.

probably her best chance, with the reigning champion just having had

:35:22.:35:27.

twins, and Valerie Adams missing, expecting her first baby in October.

:35:28.:35:34.

Michelle Carter has really proven she can compete when it matters

:35:35.:35:40.

most. The last throw of the Olympic final in Rio took the title there.

:35:41.:35:46.

Quite a simple technique. Sets her top half up well and drives hard

:35:47.:35:53.

with her legs. But... I reckon that is short of Lijao Gong's efforts.

:35:54.:36:05.

Carter does take a few rounds to get going. It popped out left on her.

:36:06.:36:11.

Difficult conditions, as we've seen, in this even being session. It has

:36:12.:36:19.

not stopped raining right from the start. Carter goes into second

:36:20.:36:23.

place. A very different feel to this second

:36:24.:36:27.

heat in this men's 5000 metres. You don't have some of the athletes

:36:28.:36:32.

falling off and getting lapped in the latter stages. A much more

:36:33.:36:37.

compacted field. Pretty good strength throughout. The Ugandan who

:36:38.:36:45.

was silver behind Mo Farah in the 10,000 metres was supposed to run in

:36:46.:36:50.

this, but it is Kissa of Uganda running in this. Mark Scott, the

:36:51.:36:56.

Yorkshireman, at the back and trying to maintain contact at the moment.

:36:57.:37:06.

More of a marathon runner than Butchart. Around five seconds

:37:07.:37:10.

quicker than the first heat, so that is one of the things they will be

:37:11.:37:17.

looking out for. Chelimo, the US champion, who destroyed the field in

:37:18.:37:22.

Sacramento. A big talent, and maybe a threat to Mo Farah in the final.

:37:23.:37:27.

You're right. We know how good he is. Olympic silver medallist behind

:37:28.:37:36.

Mo in Rio. And the young Ethiopian, Barega, the junior champion last

:37:37.:37:39.

year. He has taken the lead and is moving it along. The group is

:37:40.:37:45.

slightly smaller. There's still a lot of them there. They need to keep

:37:46.:37:52.

the pressure on, as they come onto the 3000 metre mark. The time is

:37:53.:37:58.

comparatively quick. Now they have a bit to do. 2.41, a faster kilometre.

:37:59.:38:07.

They are doing the right thing. If they hadn't run like this, their

:38:08.:38:14.

coaches would have gone mad at them. A stumble by Chelimo, and a little

:38:15.:38:20.

bit of an argument there. There's no point doing that. You need to

:38:21.:38:27.

concentrate on running. He is having an argument with Balew, the EEC

:38:28.:38:30.

apian running for Bahrain at the moment. A bit of an argument going

:38:31.:38:37.

on. I don't think Balew is going to get involved in any discussion.

:38:38.:38:45.

Kissa, a 13.13 man. In third place right now. Down goes Chelimo! He

:38:46.:38:53.

needs to get himself back in here. He would be a danger to Mo Farah if

:38:54.:38:58.

he could get through to the final. It's happened just about early

:38:59.:39:03.

enough, if Chelimo can get back in. It was a pure accident that time. I

:39:04.:39:12.

know that was an -- there was an argument last time, but not there.

:39:13.:39:18.

Chelimo is good enough and strong enough, but he's got to control

:39:19.:39:25.

himself. Think about it. Don't use any of the anger caused by this fall

:39:26.:39:30.

and the argument. He hasn't had a smooth ride and his coaches will not

:39:31.:39:37.

be very happy with that. They are going fast enough to qualify. There

:39:38.:39:42.

is another one. They need to start thinking about track discipline. You

:39:43.:39:47.

don't just dive in and dive out. You've got to take it smooth. You

:39:48.:39:52.

might get in trouble, but somebody else is going to get in trouble as

:39:53.:39:58.

well. Andy Butchart just stepping away from a clip on the heels. All

:39:59.:40:03.

the time you are thinking, if you are Julie Mo, I've fallen, and you

:40:04.:40:09.

panic. He will be thinking, what have I spent here that will cost me

:40:10.:40:19.

later in the race? He is back in there now. We are looking at the

:40:20.:40:23.

pace. It is a little bit faster there. The top five go through, and

:40:24.:40:34.

the five fastest losers. You've got to do some sums when you are

:40:35.:40:42.

running. 10.49 for 4000 metres, so ten seconds faster than the first

:40:43.:40:47.

heat. Ten of these athletes, if they keep going at their regular pace,

:40:48.:40:53.

will qualify for the final. So he needs to qualify for the race and

:40:54.:40:58.

not settle any arguments. You can settle arguments after the race, not

:40:59.:41:05.

now. Rutto coming on the outside. Andy but chart must know now what

:41:06.:41:14.

he's got to do. They are racing. Some probably haven't been paying

:41:15.:41:18.

enough attention to the overall pace. Maybe they don't know what

:41:19.:41:23.

happened in the previous heat, but the messages, keep moving, keep

:41:24.:41:27.

doing what you're doing, and ten could go through. It is a bit of a

:41:28.:41:35.

race, but an easier one now, with 600 metres to go. The King at

:41:36.:41:42.

numbers of about 14, 16 there, but Moen the Norwegian is about...

:41:43.:41:52.

Dropping back. Have D from Eritrea comes round. -- Habte. Rutto is

:41:53.:42:03.

trying to free himself. Still a bit of danger. It is a bit cluttered. It

:42:04.:42:11.

is. These athletes are experienced, but are really losing their track

:42:12.:42:17.

discipline. Andy but Butchart doesn't have to do anything. It is

:42:18.:42:26.

about holding position now. You don't have to be in the first five,

:42:27.:42:32.

but just alongside them. There is the qualification. Ten of these

:42:33.:42:37.

athletes, and ten are pulling clear. Andy Butchart able to pull through.

:42:38.:42:49.

Back to Ryan Hill, the American, so ate there, and then two from the

:42:50.:42:56.

others. Chelimo has done very well to get himself back into this after

:42:57.:43:00.

a nasty fall, but it was just early enough for him to get back in and

:43:01.:43:08.

get a qualifying place. Barega is there, and Balew. Having a chat

:43:09.:43:13.

there with Chelimo, but a friendly chat. A lot of barging going on. I

:43:14.:43:18.

don't think Butchart was involved at all. Andy Butchart was comfortable.

:43:19.:43:30.

Mark Scott coming down the home straight now, and enjoying his World

:43:31.:43:34.

Championship experience. He was waving to the crowd and saying, make

:43:35.:43:40.

a little noise for me. He has enjoyed his experience, but was some

:43:41.:43:48.

way off. But Andy Butchart is safely through. A well calculated race

:43:49.:43:54.

there from Andy Butchart. He obviously was aware of what was

:43:55.:43:59.

going on. He is now telling Chelimo, don't worry about that fall, don't

:44:00.:44:06.

get angry, just leave it alone. It was an accident, it's what happens.

:44:07.:44:10.

Chelimo doesn't seem to agree with that, so I'm sure there will be some

:44:11.:44:16.

conversations in the tunnel. There is Barega, a very strong athlete. He

:44:17.:44:24.

is going to be a danger. Tiernan ran well. He set the pace going. But the

:44:25.:44:32.

union of distance runners decided that 13.30 was a time they could

:44:33.:44:36.

run. Ten actually ran faster than that. Andy Butchart had it all

:44:37.:44:44.

calculated and knew what he had to do. Ran alongside Chelimo telling

:44:45.:44:49.

him, we're all right, we've qualified. A smile in the home

:44:50.:44:56.

straight. Let's hope we see a smile in the home straight on Saturday.

:44:57.:45:00.

Well done, Andy. Comfortable qualifying. Comfortable in

:45:01.:45:07.

qualifying and able to have a chat and a smile with Chelimo on the way

:45:08.:45:14.

home. You must be pleased. Yes, just get back, freshen up, come back for

:45:15.:45:19.

the final. As a distance runner, you must have been thrilled with the

:45:20.:45:24.

conditions. I love to run in the race. These guys run hard, so it was

:45:25.:45:30.

choppy with some water in your face. You had to do some hurdling at one

:45:31.:45:36.

point as well. Chelimo was in front of me, but because it was a slow

:45:37.:45:42.

race, it was bouquet. Tell me about the mathematics. You were trying to

:45:43.:45:45.

keep an eye on your position and the time. 13.30 was the time for the

:45:46.:45:56.

next fastest loser. So I was just counting the numbers and looking at

:45:57.:45:59.

the big screen. I could see I was clear. What were you saying to

:46:00.:46:08.

Chelimo as you came in. I said, chill, we are through. He was a bit

:46:09.:46:17.

angry. We chat quite a bit, so... And what could you do in the final?

:46:18.:46:21.

You were impressive in Rio in the final last year? It is nice to get

:46:22.:46:27.

to a world champs final. We don't know what will happen in the final.

:46:28.:46:33.

Mo is there. Who knows what will happen if we work together. I would

:46:34.:46:38.

be happy to manage fourth place like the rest of the guys. All the best.

:46:39.:46:41.

Scott. We saw in Rio with that sixth place finish, what Butchart can do.

:46:42.:46:46.

This is turning into a war of attrition. Gong Lijao leads with

:46:47.:46:53.

19.16. The on athlete who has gone beyond 19 metres so far. We are into

:46:54.:46:58.

the second round. Gong looking to extend her lead. Maybe closer to 20

:46:59.:47:05.

metres. A big scream from her. Taking on terrible conditions.

:47:06.:47:11.

Pretty well at this stage. Her team-mate you can see, Gao.

:47:12.:47:17.

18.03. Her best so far. She is in sixth place. Michelle Carter is in

:47:18.:47:23.

bronze with 18.82 and Anita Marton with 18.50.

:47:24.:47:31.

Gong has then 19.35. Still out in front. So Andy Butchart safely

:47:32.:47:40.

through following Mo Farah from that first heat, and Butchart just

:47:41.:47:44.

telling fill Phil what he was saying to Chelimo. Chelimo is in the US

:47:45.:47:50.

Army. So if all the people, you don't want to mess with, it is him.

:47:51.:47:56.

But it was fractious. It was, I was worried at one stage, because when

:47:57.:47:59.

Chelimo went down Butchart was caught up in that and he was

:48:00.:48:06.

struggling. It looked like he was limping so I am happy to see him

:48:07.:48:09.

joking round. He is is a great character, a big part of the team

:48:10.:48:13.

and I know he did take Langford under his wing a bit. So Kyle has

:48:14.:48:18.

given him a run for his money in the tash department. And that cheeky

:48:19.:48:21.

comment about the fourth place, he does have aspirations to get himself

:48:22.:48:25.

among the medals He mows he is many great shape. He ran really well last

:48:26.:48:29.

year in lie owe, but he is another of those in the aim way that Kyle is

:48:30.:48:37.

talking about what he want tots aim for next, Callum Hawkins, Andrew

:48:38.:48:40.

Butchart isn't happy with sixth place, he knows he is can do better.

:48:41.:48:45.

He has worked with Mo, he knows where he is in relation to Mo's

:48:46.:48:49.

training and he knows what he is capable of. Saturday night Mo

:48:50.:48:54.

Farah's last ever track race in a Championship. He will be appearing

:48:55.:49:00.

on the track but his last chance of another global gold. If you have

:49:01.:49:05.

been with us, you will know the saga of Isaac Makwala, it took another

:49:06.:49:13.

turn this evening. When the IAAF released this statement.

:49:14.:49:41.

In evening when it was light but definitely raining Isaac Makwala

:49:42.:49:47.

came out on the track, on his own, in lane seven Michael Johnson and

:49:48.:49:51.

did exactly what he had to do. He did. It is great to see that he had

:49:52.:49:57.

this opportunity and he had fantastic support from the crowd,

:49:58.:50:02.

that was here, to witness this, cheering him on, to a 20.2 single

:50:03.:50:09.

run, maybe a world record for a single run out of Championships.

:50:10.:50:14.

Followed by a few push ups. Michael Johnson and did exactly what he had

:50:15.:50:17.

to do. He did. It is great to see that he had this opportunity and he

:50:18.:50:20.

had fantastic support from the crowd, that was here, to witness

:50:21.:50:22.

this, cheering him on, to a 20.2 single run, maybe a world record for

:50:23.:50:25.

a single run out of Championships. Followed by a few push ups. "I am

:50:26.:50:28.

fit". Doing the push up, he will be in the semifinal. So it is a great

:50:29.:50:31.

opportunity for him to hopefully make it into the final eventually.

:50:32.:50:33.

Watched by Wayde van Niekerk there as well, who had spoken last night

:50:34.:50:36.

about his sadness of not competing against him in the 400-metre final.

:50:37.:50:39.

He is out on the track. Two hours later, he is in the first of these

:50:40.:50:41.

heats, Michael. We have no idea, obviously that will have taken

:50:42.:50:44.

something out of him because he was sick a couple of days ago. We will

:50:45.:50:47.

have to see whether it has taken a lot out of him or if he has enough

:50:48.:50:50.

left to make it through to the final. What do you think? From what

:50:51.:50:54.

I saw, I think, I mean I think he will be OK, I think he will start

:50:55.:50:59.

running off adrenaline at this point, he has got the sympathy of

:51:00.:51:03.

the world, and certainly everyone in this stadium, that is rooting for

:51:04.:51:07.

him to get into that final. I think than given that earlier this year,

:51:08.:51:16.

he ran very quick in the same day in Madrid, he is definitely in great

:51:17.:51:20.

shape and great condition this year, that is certainly an indication he

:51:21.:51:24.

can come back from a race, 400 metres and come back and run a fast

:51:25.:51:29.

200 metres so today he has had to run a 200 and come back and run

:51:30.:51:36.

another 200. There is a Brit in each of these heats. Mitchell-Blake is

:51:37.:51:41.

starting to realise that potential that we knew he had. He has run

:51:42.:51:47.

consistently this year, we saw him in the trials, very confident run,

:51:48.:51:51.

you know, he is still relatively unknown to the British public, but

:51:52.:51:55.

these are the Championships that could establish him as a firm

:51:56.:51:59.

British favourite. Phil Jones caught up with him ahead of the

:52:00.:52:04.

Championships. Can I ask you to do a loud clap.

:52:05.:52:11.

That is for no other reason that... I would have been surprised.

:52:12.:52:23.

You are not going to say no BBC. I was born in East London, then I

:52:24.:52:29.

moved to Jamaica when I was 13. Resided there for five years and

:52:30.:52:35.

then I got a track scholarship to a universe any the States where I

:52:36.:52:39.

studied international trade and finance. I made youth, European

:52:40.:52:44.

juniors and made the European senior team and now World Championships. At

:52:45.:52:48.

the worlds in your event, it seems it is pretty much wide-open, is that

:52:49.:52:55.

fair to say Yes, I believe every event is wide-open. In previous

:52:56.:53:02.

year, the numbers were higher, so I believe everybody believes within

:53:03.:53:04.

themselves they can do something special. How important is it for you

:53:05.:53:10.

to know you are one of those guys that can run sub 20? I know I've

:53:11.:53:18.

done it and I know I am in better shape than last year. It is about

:53:19.:53:23.

piecing it together. What matters is getting top two finish and in the

:53:24.:53:28.

final ultimately get a medal. What about that experience from Rio, did

:53:29.:53:32.

it surprise you being on the global stage, did you learn a massive

:53:33.:53:37.

amount from it or not. I learn every day, Rio was a big learning curve

:53:38.:53:41.

for me and I think I needed it. It has helped me become the person I am

:53:42.:53:46.

this year, it has helped me understand the sport on a world

:53:47.:53:49.

leave, what it takes to compete with the world's best.

:53:50.:53:54.

And to have the Championships in London, it is going to give it that

:53:55.:53:58.

added edge, excitement and especially when you are from that

:53:59.:54:01.

area in the first place, as you are, so how special is it for you? Second

:54:02.:54:06.

to none. I believe it is everybody dreams in the sport to be able to

:54:07.:54:11.

compete in front of their home crowd, for that to come true is

:54:12.:54:16.

something I am not taking for granted and looking forward to.

:54:17.:54:23.

College education in America, part of his childhood in Jamaica, but he

:54:24.:54:27.

is very proud to be representing Great Britain in front of his home

:54:28.:54:31.

crowd and hoping to make it through that final. Steve Cram. Well, his

:54:32.:54:37.

task has been made harder by the inclusion of Isaac Makwala in this

:54:38.:54:41.

first semifinal. He would have woke up this morning thinking yes, he

:54:42.:54:44.

looks at that start list and thinks I have a great chance, he still has

:54:45.:54:49.

a great chance, it has been made that bit more difficult.

:54:50.:54:56.

Or even a lot more difficult because Makwala, although he is in lane one,

:54:57.:55:03.

isn't just there, and he is the world's fastest 200-metre runner of

:55:04.:55:07.

the year, everyone in lane one he will be a threat. As will Simbine

:55:08.:55:12.

who finished fifth in the 100-metre final. This the man who made it

:55:13.:55:16.

through because Makwala didn't turn up. He finished third at 100 metres

:55:17.:55:27.

in the junior championship Tortu. Lima goes in lane two. Then Makwala,

:55:28.:55:33.

I am sure he will get a huge, huge reception from the crowd. He does.

:55:34.:55:50.

So outside of Mitchell-Blake, we haven't seen Greaux or Young. Iizuka

:55:51.:55:59.

of Japan and Dwyer the Commonwealth champion. Mitchell-Blake needs to be

:56:00.:56:05.

at his best. He has run 20.04. A season's best, not far outside that

:56:06.:56:10.

in qualification. She Britain's second fastest at this distance

:56:11.:56:14.

behind John Regis, he needs to be quick here.

:56:15.:56:20.

Omit the toll two to go there -- only the top two to go through to

:56:21.:56:21.

the final. He gets a good start does

:56:22.:56:28.

Mitchell-Blake. Inside. Simbine gets a good start. Makwala going well and

:56:29.:56:34.

Young. Mitchell-Blake is in the race, Makwala has run a brilliant

:56:35.:56:37.

bend. Makwala. Mitchell-Blake, trying to charge, he is going to go

:56:38.:56:42.

some. These three are pulling away, Makwala just tiring a bit. It is

:56:43.:56:48.

going to be Makwala, and Young, Mitchell-Blake third, what a

:56:49.:56:53.

performance from Makwala. Lane one, and he is still in the rain, he is

:56:54.:56:57.

splashing through the puddles, is quick enough and good enough. He has

:56:58.:57:01.

just finished behind Young. Young won it. Mitchell-Blake ran well. He

:57:02.:57:07.

has to wait now, 20.19, there are two fastest loser spots available.

:57:08.:57:12.

It is cold, wet, he didn't get in the top two, these semis are tough,

:57:13.:57:16.

they are very very tough indeed. I don't think he could really think he

:57:17.:57:21.

did too much wrong, maybe not quite as good off the bend as we have seen

:57:22.:57:25.

from him in the past. He was charging at the end. Talk through

:57:26.:57:28.

this. Makwala, what about him in lane one. You can't forget him. He

:57:29.:57:34.

has that 200 in him already. We are wondering what he could do,

:57:35.:57:37.

two-and-a-half hours later, that is what he has done, put himself in

:57:38.:57:40.

that final. But you are right, Steve. I was watching

:57:41.:57:46.

Mitchell-Blake, I was seeing if he could hang on in there. His didn't

:57:47.:57:51.

do too much wrong, you are right Steve. I think the others in front

:57:52.:57:56.

of him were just too good on this particular day. 20.19? It may be

:57:57.:58:09.

enough. 20.19. You should be able to make the final. Isaac, come on in as

:58:10.:58:14.

well. Come and have a chat to us as well. Isaac. Fastest loser, if I get

:58:15.:58:24.

it I give get it but I wanted automatic qualification. And as far

:58:25.:58:28.

you your second race of the day I sacks you ran on your own to qualify

:58:29.:58:31.

for this position, how was that first of all? You know, first of

:58:32.:58:38.

all, God is great. I put everything on good. After what happened. You

:58:39.:58:44.

know. So I thank God for what, all this. You said only earlier you were

:58:45.:58:50.

heartbroken at not being able to run the 400, what does it mean to be

:58:51.:58:54.

challenging for medals and the crowd's reception. I am still

:58:55.:59:01.

running with the heartbroken. I wish I had run the 400 first. I was ready

:59:02.:59:07.

for running the 400. Then I could run the 200. I don't know what

:59:08.:59:12.

decision they take for me to not run the final 400. That is the race I am

:59:13.:59:18.

training for. 200 I do it some time, you know, so, I will be fine.

:59:19.:59:22.

What do you think of this man and what he has been able to do?

:59:23.:59:26.

Mentally one of the toughest guys in the sport. It is not easy to go flu

:59:27.:59:30.

what he has been through, I am happy he is in here, he deserves to be in

:59:31.:59:34.

the final. Are you running with anger inside you? Yes, I still want

:59:35.:59:41.

my 400 you know. That is my race. 400 is my race, you know. Isaac, you

:59:42.:59:46.

have come back so well, today, the crowd obviously adore you, we wish

:59:47.:59:50.

you well for the 200 going forward. Thank you. I wish to thank the IAAF

:59:51.:59:57.

to give me another chance and the crowd is so amazing, they did me to

:59:58.:00:03.

believe. The crowd, I want to than than crowd. It is so amazing. We

:00:04.:00:07.

will let you talk to world's press. One last word from a British

:00:08.:00:11.

perspective from you, I know you wanted to get in the automatic two

:00:12.:00:15.

place, the fact that Isaac was here made it more difficult for you, when

:00:16.:00:20.

did you learn about that? My coach told me when I started warming up,

:00:21.:00:29.

but, it doesn't phase me, you know. It is a waiting game now but you

:00:30.:00:33.

have acquitted yourself, the crowd adore you. It has been sensation a.

:00:34.:00:39.

Thank you for everyone cheering for me I appreciate it. Thank you for

:00:40.:00:41.

talking to us and for your patience. Let's have a look at this race

:00:42.:00:56.

again. Nathaniel put himself right in it. You cannot ask for more from

:00:57.:01:05.

anybody. He was very good in the last 50, but coming off the terms,

:01:06.:01:13.

they had him. Back and put you under pressure when you are charging

:01:14.:01:19.

towards the line. He did all his work down the home straight, so this

:01:20.:01:25.

is just the way he runs. He's going to get better, more experienced, and

:01:26.:01:28.

go on the circuit. That will give him more confidence to push on round

:01:29.:01:35.

that Ben. I think, in these conditions, it's going to be

:01:36.:01:39.

anxious. There's lots of good athletes in the other semi finals.

:01:40.:01:46.

That is a very good third place. I don't think we are going to see

:01:47.:01:50.

anything under 20 seconds. The winds are just plus 22. That could have

:01:51.:02:02.

been a factor. His bend does look deceptively slow compare to the

:02:03.:02:06.

other athletes. Michael, can you explain that? McNeil? He loves the

:02:07.:02:17.

100. Some guys come from the 100 and really don't want to attack that

:02:18.:02:21.

bend, which you have to do if you are going to run in world-class 200

:02:22.:02:27.

metre races. You have to attack that bend and have the confidence from

:02:28.:02:34.

your training to hold that. Otherwise, you run a first 60 or 70

:02:35.:02:42.

metres fast, and then take a small break. It is not slowing down, just

:02:43.:02:49.

a small relaxation. You can't just coast around the bend and then

:02:50.:02:53.

think, I'm going to catch them down the home straight, because the race

:02:54.:02:59.

is over. It isn't going to be a very relaxing ten minutes for him,

:03:00.:03:02.

because he will be watching the other heats and hoping his time will

:03:03.:03:06.

be quick enough. Zharnel Hughes will know that and hope he can get to an

:03:07.:03:12.

automatic qualification spot. Spots of rain on the track, that's for

:03:13.:03:18.

sure. Yohan Blake of Jamaica in this one as well. Pro I think the danger

:03:19.:03:26.

to Nethaneel Mitchell-Blake comes from the third heat. Yohan Blake

:03:27.:03:38.

goes here. So long in the shadow of Usain Bolt. In the 100, he was in

:03:39.:03:44.

fourth place. Sidney Siame from Zambia. The 19-year-old who equalled

:03:45.:03:48.

the Zambian record in the first round. There is Jereem Richards.

:03:49.:04:02.

He's gone 19.97 this season. He won his heat. I don't think we will see

:04:03.:04:08.

times as quick as that this evening. King was fourth at the US trials.

:04:09.:04:17.

That was won by Ameer Webb. Here is a Zharnel Hughes. He was fifth in

:04:18.:04:26.

Beijing a couple of years ago. Ran sub 20 that year. Last year had a

:04:27.:04:32.

knee injury and did not find that form again this year. Alex Wilson,

:04:33.:04:39.

the Jamaican who moved to Switzerland at 13. With all the

:04:40.:04:49.

shenanigans going on from here rode the hedgehog. Good times. The second

:04:50.:05:04.

semifinal of the 200 metres. Sani Brown, the 18-year-old Japanese

:05:05.:05:10.

athlete, goes on the outside. Zharnel Hughes has to find some of

:05:11.:05:14.

that form he had a couple of years ago. Looks like he is trying to keep

:05:15.:05:21.

warm. Very, very chilly. The rain still teams down. The time of

:05:22.:05:29.

Nethaneel Mitchell-Blake 20.19. Two to go through automatically.

:05:30.:05:44.

Zharnel Hughes explodes away from the starting block. Yohan Blake

:05:45.:05:51.

moving along as well. Quicker in the outside lanes at the moment. On the

:05:52.:05:57.

outside, Sani Brown, the Japanese athlete. Sani Brown coming through,

:05:58.:06:07.

taking the second automatic qualifying place. There will be

:06:08.:06:13.

nobody there to challenge Nethaneel Mitchell-Blake. What happened to

:06:14.:06:19.

Yohan Blake? Richards is through. Abdul Hakkinen Sani Brown, the

:06:20.:06:22.

18-year-old Japanese, through as well. Yohan Blake will not go

:06:23.:06:28.

through. Big surprise not to see Yohan Blake in that final. A time of

:06:29.:06:39.

20.52. Really struggled. In contrast, Richards, ran a really

:06:40.:06:44.

strong bend and reacted well. The gun goes, crack. A tall, leggy

:06:45.:06:51.

athlete from Trinidad. Gets those really high knees going, even around

:06:52.:06:55.

the turn, reminding me of Don Quarry. Looks very relaxed and in

:06:56.:07:04.

control. He's in search of opposition, and it's not happening.

:07:05.:07:09.

He's so far clear, it's incredible. Easy victory for him. Talking about

:07:10.:07:19.

American sprinting and the 200, it's not a vintage crop at all. King was

:07:20.:07:25.

struggling as well. And a great finish by Sani Brown on the outside.

:07:26.:07:31.

What a great finish by the Japanese. He is known as a 100 metres runner.

:07:32.:07:36.

A surprise to see him run so well and put so many good athletes behind

:07:37.:07:43.

him, but he's in that final. STUDIO: In the next heat, double

:07:44.:07:48.

Olympic champion Wayde van Niekerk of South Africa, one of the huge

:07:49.:07:52.

stars of athletics, being big duck by none other than Usain Bolt.

:07:53.:08:09.

Three abreast. Wayde van Niekerk has gone out very quickly. Can he hold

:08:10.:08:18.

on? He has gone clear. Van Niekerk takes it. A new world record. It

:08:19.:08:24.

gives me a lot of excitement to see what lies in store for me, but I

:08:25.:08:29.

know there's a lot of responsibility to go out there and work for where I

:08:30.:08:35.

want to be. It's one thing for someone to say that we can be the

:08:36.:08:39.

next big thing, but it's another thing working for it. The thing

:08:40.:08:44.

about van Niekerk is what he brings to South Africa. He's more than a

:08:45.:08:49.

medallist and a captain. He's an inspiration. He has those qualities

:08:50.:08:55.

that make him a hero of our generation and generations come.

:08:56.:09:00.

COMMENTATOR: They are chasing down van Niekerk. The South African in

:09:01.:09:06.

front. Gold for South Africa! A stunning performance. Back in

:09:07.:09:11.

Beijing, I would have settled for a final or even a bronze, and I ended

:09:12.:09:18.

up with gold. I thought maybe reopen would be my gold medal, but it

:09:19.:09:22.

happened earlier. Then at Rio, I had to back up what I did earlier. I

:09:23.:09:29.

decided to do better what I did last year. So I decided to challenge

:09:30.:09:37.

myself in both 200 and 400. COMMENTATOR: Wayde van Niekerk is

:09:38.:09:40.

the world champion again. It may not have been the best we've seen from

:09:41.:09:45.

van Niekerk, maybe had the 200 metres in his legs from yesterday.

:09:46.:09:50.

He's just so much better than everybody else. If you put a

:09:51.:09:57.

challenge in front of him, he will go 100%, sometimes 110%. And he's

:09:58.:10:05.

got a very, very strong mindset. If he decides he wants that, he will go

:10:06.:10:14.

full out for it. I feel quite confident. My coach has shown she

:10:15.:10:20.

can make me produce at the big competitions, so I have full faith

:10:21.:10:25.

in what she has done. It's for me to go out there and lay it down on the

:10:26.:10:31.

track. He's very humble, but very confident. His aim is to go out here

:10:32.:10:36.

and set a world record. That's what he tries to do every time he gets

:10:37.:10:41.

out on the track, to be better than everyone else and improve. This is

:10:42.:10:49.

track and field. It is a dream I need to fight for. If that means I

:10:50.:10:56.

put out some great times in the 100, 200 and 400, I know I will have

:10:57.:11:02.

achieved their goals I wanted to as an athlete. I would love to reach

:11:03.:11:07.

the heights that Usain Bolt has. He turned 25 a few months ago. How big

:11:08.:11:15.

can he be? There's lots of comparisons to Usain Bolt, but you

:11:16.:11:21.

have to look at at what can text. Can he be the biggest name in this

:11:22.:11:26.

sport? Can he do what Usain Bolt did and transcend the sport, and bring

:11:27.:11:31.

people into the sport that otherwise wouldn't be watching? He will have

:11:32.:11:34.

to do something really special. You can't just be the champion and the

:11:35.:11:39.

world record holder to do that. Usain Bolt was doing things in the

:11:40.:11:44.

sport that were unprecedented, and he had a personality that was so

:11:45.:11:50.

magnetic and dynamic that it just captured people. That's not Wayde

:11:51.:11:54.

van Niekerk, and nor should he try to be that. He should be himself. He

:11:55.:12:03.

is a very humble man. He was shaking hands with all his opponents, one of

:12:04.:12:07.

whom is Danny Talbot of Great Britain. They enjoyed running next

:12:08.:12:10.

to each other in the heats, Steve Cram. They did. Very impressive by

:12:11.:12:17.

Danny Talbot. Not fazed by van Niekerk and ran a personal best.

:12:18.:12:22.

Moved up the British all-time list by a couple of notches. They were

:12:23.:12:27.

looking at each other as they crossed the line. Danny Talbot is a

:12:28.:12:35.

great bend runner. He knows this is a massive opportunity. What a

:12:36.:12:40.

semifinal this is for him. He's got van Niekerk, he's got the Olympic

:12:41.:12:45.

runs medallist, van Niekerk is attempting to do his double and win

:12:46.:12:54.

gold. Ameer Webb, the American champion. Nobody has been talking

:12:55.:12:59.

too much about him. The Americans struggling a little bit at this

:13:00.:13:05.

event. No Jamaicans will be in the final. When's the last time we saw

:13:06.:13:13.

that? The Turkish athlete will be a big danger here. Formally running

:13:14.:13:20.

for Azerbaijan. In great form. Looked very impressive in

:13:21.:13:25.

qualification and made the Olympic final. Koffi from the Ivory Coast.

:13:26.:13:39.

Pretty straightforward here. In terms of qualifying, its top two.

:13:40.:13:44.

And then Mitchell-Blake is in the qualifying position as a fastest

:13:45.:13:49.

loser at the moment. Unbelievably, you go all the way back to Yohan

:13:50.:13:55.

Blake. So you could come third here in about 20.23, or even fourth, but

:13:56.:14:04.

you would have to be inside 20.2. We will sort it out at the end. The

:14:05.:14:11.

simple thing is, come in the top two. Danny Talbot, van Niekerk,

:14:12.:14:12.

Ameer Webb,... Danny Talbot gets a very good start,

:14:13.:14:28.

and so does Ameer Webb. Lemaitre right in there.

:14:29.:14:38.

Only the top to go through. Lemaitre finishing very quickly. It's going

:14:39.:14:47.

to be Guliyev and Ameer Webb. Mitchell Webb will make the final.

:14:48.:14:48.

Who else? Coll link look at Webb on the bend,

:14:49.:14:59.

on the line, that is one thing to look out for, fatigue for van

:15:00.:15:03.

Niekerk, obviously, after last night's 400-metre final, his fifth

:15:04.:15:07.

race in five day, no speed for him today in a race that was won well

:15:08.:15:12.

outside 20 seconds. Guliyev continues to imprefs. Danny Talbot

:15:13.:15:19.

ran well but that with a tough semi. It was a tough semi. When we saw the

:15:20.:15:29.

start list. Check out how he is going round the

:15:30.:15:33.

bend. It looks fine. Once he comes in that straight he is absolutely

:15:34.:15:38.

fine, but he is still ahead, with about 50, 60 metres to go. Here

:15:39.:15:43.

comes Guliyev. We have seen him time and time and time again at

:15:44.:15:47.

Championships, come out with big performances and he has achieved

:15:48.:15:52.

that again. Taking the semifinal, with an incredible time there,

:15:53.:15:57.

20.17, and it is hammering down with rain out there, so for me, boy, that

:15:58.:16:01.

was a tough old semi, we thought that. Van Niekerk, we think is

:16:02.:16:07.

definitely qualified, along with our Nethaneel Mitchell-Blake, it is good

:16:08.:16:09.

we have a British athlete in that final.

:16:10.:16:13.

Danny Talbot, I think he has done a good job. This was a tough semi for

:16:14.:16:15.

him. It has gone your way but you have

:16:16.:16:33.

had a tough few days, it has taken a lot out of you? It was tougher than

:16:34.:16:38.

I thought it would be. I knew it was going to be a big challenge. I had

:16:39.:16:45.

to dig quite deep, and, seeing my name the finals is it a real

:16:46.:16:48.

pleasure UK, I have time now to recover, and then give it my all

:16:49.:16:52.

tomorrow. For you Danny, disappointment not to make the

:16:53.:16:55.

final, cold, damp conditions not helping, what about the race itself?

:16:56.:17:03.

Yes, it is difficult, I came here to make the final, but, I ran I ran it

:17:04.:17:08.

how I wanted to but I didn't have the legs, it is something I have to

:17:09.:17:13.

work on in training and come back, it is not just one first round, I

:17:14.:17:17.

could do two or three. What is you learned most from this? I think I

:17:18.:17:23.

need toe have more self-belief, on Monday, in the heat I showed I can

:17:24.:17:30.

mix it with the guy, got a personal best, today I don't think I had the

:17:31.:17:35.

true belief in me. It is something I have to learn. I am not young, I am

:17:36.:17:40.

starting to reach my peak. I want to challenge for medals so it is

:17:41.:17:43.

something I have to work on and I will. We appreciate your time. Thank

:17:44.:17:49.

you. We are into round five of the shot

:17:50.:17:54.

put final. They have been drenched. Michelle Carter in second place.

:17:55.:18:01.

With her third round effort of 19.14, chasing Gong's lead. Just

:18:02.:18:08.

saved that I think. Gong, 19.35 the lead. A foul from

:18:09.:18:14.

Carter, just one throw remaining. Trying to stay dry. Carter can get,

:18:15.:18:22.

19.14 her best. That was a foul. Carter we know can throw well in the

:18:23.:18:27.

last round. She has done that on many occasions in the past. So to

:18:28.:18:32.

complete round five, Gong Lijao, a big shout from her. That is the best

:18:33.:18:40.

throw we have seen so far. Celebrations from the Chinese

:18:41.:18:46.

contingent. Gong celebrating but Carter does have a history of saving

:18:47.:18:53.

her best till last. She will need it if she is going to challenge this

:18:54.:18:59.

throw. 19.94. It has extended her lead. That is a big effort. She has

:19:00.:19:05.

thrown over 20 metres this year, 20.11. She is the only athlete to

:19:06.:19:10.

have done that. Gong extending her first place position.

:19:11.:19:15.

It wasn't first place for either of those two. Van Niekerk will go to

:19:16.:19:23.

the finals as the fastest loser with Mitchell-Blake. They will get lanes

:19:24.:19:27.

two and three if it goes on times Mitchell-Blake will get lane three

:19:28.:19:31.

and van Niekerk lane two. Two. What can he do in lane two in the final?

:19:32.:19:40.

The times, given the conditions, obviously may not as quick as we

:19:41.:19:46.

would have thought, there is confirmation, 21.17 with Webb. He

:19:47.:19:51.

came off the bend, the head on showed he was nowhere near the line.

:19:52.:19:55.

Let us look at the qualifiers. Richards, he is the only one who was

:19:56.:20:01.

easing down across the line. Mitchell-Blake through though, well,

:20:02.:20:04.

now that van Niekerk is on the inside in the final, we will wait

:20:05.:20:08.

for the draw. Makwala is in there, he won't get one of the better lanes

:20:09.:20:12.

because he was second. Who is the favourite there. Take your pick.

:20:13.:20:20.

No Jamaican in that 200-metre final. We have one in the studio. Omar,

:20:21.:20:28.

congratulations on your medal. We were hoping to get you with your

:20:29.:20:32.

mum. Your amazing mum and your celebrations made us smile. She is

:20:33.:20:35.

understandably, with this weather flown back to Jamaica. Yes, she has.

:20:36.:20:41.

She has got out of here. Yes, she has to lead, she had things to do

:20:42.:20:48.

back home, take care of my brothers who had to go back to school. She

:20:49.:20:53.

wanted to stay until the weekend but she had to go home. You are part of

:20:54.:20:59.

the squad for the relay? . I am. I have relay practise tomorrow. How

:21:00.:21:03.

delighted are you to be the Olympic and World Champion, it must be an

:21:04.:21:08.

incredible feeling? It is. I haven't come to terms as yet, but overall I

:21:09.:21:14.

am feeling great. What I did, I know it was exceptional, historic and

:21:15.:21:18.

like said, didn't just do it for me. I wanted to bring the spark back in

:21:19.:21:25.

the Jamaica camp, especially after what happened to Usain Bolt and

:21:26.:21:28.

Elaine Thompson. I took it on myself to change that, I wanted to change

:21:29.:21:32.

it, and I think I did that, I am happy. It must be an unusual feeling

:21:33.:21:39.

in the Jamaican camp! Camp! Trust me, it was. I think Jamaica, we are

:21:40.:21:45.

proud with the gold medals and I remember last year when Usain Bolt

:21:46.:21:48.

won and Elaine won, I used that to propel me for my race, didn't have

:21:49.:21:53.

that, so it was OK, I need to shine my own light here. So I had to go do

:21:54.:21:57.

it. And it was very impressive. Shall we have another look at your

:21:58.:22:01.

race. Yes, thank you. Nothing is ever certain in a high

:22:02.:22:08.

hurdles final. They Not at all. What I noticed. Some times in the Diamond

:22:09.:22:15.

League you can clatter them, this for me, was completely a clean race,

:22:16.:22:19.

at least you didn't hit anything, it was just, majestic. Yes, at a major

:22:20.:22:24.

Championship, the winner always boils down to who has the cleanest

:22:25.:22:28.

race. Every Championship it boils down to that. I knew I had to get

:22:29.:22:34.

out, do it my way and take it. There goes mummy.

:22:35.:22:43.

It is so lovely. Thank you so much. I was so tired.

:22:44.:22:48.

But I knew I had to take control of the race, I had to fete the start

:22:49.:22:52.

and lead from the start to finish. I am glad I could do that. There talk

:22:53.:22:57.

of you having an experiment with the distances, is that right? Yes, 200

:22:58.:23:02.

is my favourite. I Riley like the 200. A lot of people don't know

:23:03.:23:09.

that. There is a void now! Warren just retired today. We need a

:23:10.:23:18.

Jamaican 200 runner. Why not experiment? I want to be historic. I

:23:19.:23:26.

am not just about hurdles. I did the four hurdles in high school. I

:23:27.:23:30.

really hate the event but I can do it. I really hate it. Let us see

:23:31.:23:35.

what the future has in store for me. You have a couple of dogs at home. I

:23:36.:23:42.

do. You are probably missing them I have a Border Collie and a shih tzu.

:23:43.:23:47.

Stay with us, we will get back out for more field action.

:23:48.:23:59.

We are in the last round of the shot put final. Anita Marton. Currently

:24:00.:24:08.

in fourth position. The row they for. Big throw. Well, look at this.

:24:09.:24:19.

What a put in the final stages. It has almost been a wash out but Anita

:24:20.:24:27.

Marton in the last round. She has a best so far of 18.89. The lead is

:24:28.:24:36.

Gong. 19 metres... 19.49. Goes into second place, ahead of Carter. What

:24:37.:24:41.

a throw for Marton. Silver medal position as we stand. She has pushed

:24:42.:24:52.

Carter into the bronze medal position. Carter's best so far

:24:53.:24:57.

19.14. So then, can she do what he did last year in the Olympics and

:24:58.:25:02.

save her best for the final round. Composes herself. At the back of the

:25:03.:25:07.

circle. Left side came away again there.

:25:08.:25:10.

I don't think it is enough. It won't be. She knows it. Michelle Carter,

:25:11.:25:23.

the Olympic champion. Threw season's best here this evening, but it don't

:25:24.:25:27.

look like it is going to be enough. Under 19 metres.

:25:28.:25:31.

Just lost that, you can see she lost connection with the spot there. It

:25:32.:25:35.

is not surprising, look at the rain coming down. Carter, 18.97. Getting

:25:36.:25:45.

bronze, so Marton takes is till very, that confirmed Gong Lijao of

:25:46.:25:50.

China, is the gold-medallist. She will have one more effort in the

:25:51.:25:54.

knowledge that she is the champion. I don't think it has hit her yet.

:25:55.:25:59.

She was fourth five years ago in the Olympics. Didn't celebrate that

:26:00.:26:04.

rostrum finish she was eventually awarded with the disqualification,

:26:05.:26:06.

this is her last round. Look at that! Nearly 20-metre, I was saying

:26:07.:26:13.

she was fourth in the 2012 Olympics, she has since then because of

:26:14.:26:17.

disqualifications been awarded a silver medal. So, never took the

:26:18.:26:23.

rostrum here, and the World Championships, five years on, it is

:26:24.:26:31.

Gong Lijao of China. 19.89. She is champion of the world.

:26:32.:26:37.

You feel for them because it has been tough in these condition, but

:26:38.:26:45.

it is not so tough if you want do do a bit of inflatable sliding. It is

:26:46.:26:50.

perfect for that. That should have been me out there. That looks fun. I

:26:51.:26:55.

want to ask you about your gospel singing, is it true you have a

:26:56.:27:00.

really high note? Who told you that? I done my homework. Yes, I do a bit

:27:01.:27:05.

of singing but I'm not going to do any singing. I was hoping you might

:27:06.:27:10.

sing! So, you have said about wanting to mix it up and see whether

:27:11.:27:15.

you can do the 100, you love the 200, what about the world record, is

:27:16.:27:20.

that in your sights? Yes, definitely for sure, I have won him tick title,

:27:21.:27:26.

the world title. Why not go for the world record. I am still young. I am

:27:27.:27:31.

excited about the future with hurdling wise. Will we see you at

:27:32.:27:36.

the Commonwealth Games, that is another big event? Yes, Is that on

:27:37.:27:41.

your radar, which event will it be do? I think I want to do the

:27:42.:27:50.

sprints. These are the men in the 400-metre hurdles final. Do you like

:27:51.:27:54.

this It is good for the sport. I really like that. Did you have a

:27:55.:28:00.

signature move when you came out? I did a little funky dance. It was

:28:01.:28:06.

great. I lose myself sometimes and then I did the mind thingy. Nice!

:28:07.:28:12.

Mowatt from Jamaica of course, but you are targeting this event so he

:28:13.:28:16.

will watch out for you coming? Yes. For sure.

:28:17.:28:23.

Look at that guy in the glass, You don't need those in England in the

:28:24.:28:26.

rain. Maybe it is a superstition. Right. The field now taking to the

:28:27.:28:33.

track in these condition, not easy, Denise, is it for any of the track

:28:34.:28:38.

athletes. It is not, but this is part of athletic, you have to deal

:28:39.:28:42.

with it. You have to get your mind in the right frame. These guys are

:28:43.:28:48.

used to it so it is about staying focussed, composed and executing

:28:49.:28:53.

your race really well. Once you get in it. It is tough

:28:54.:28:57.

getting the approach when you are going out to the track. Having to

:28:58.:29:01.

warm up in the rain, get on the ground, in the rain, I am going to

:29:02.:29:06.

have to, you know, deal with all of the water in my eye, once you get in

:29:07.:29:10.

it you block all those things out and you get on with it, and it is

:29:11.:29:14.

warming up and preparing like any other race, but it is once you get

:29:15.:29:19.

in there, you, why does it have to be raining? It is just a bit of a

:29:20.:29:24.

downer, once you get in it you you are good. But you would rather be

:29:25.:29:32.

running in the heat, Omar. Yes. Hopefully it will be if you get

:29:33.:29:39.

involved in that relay. Take your good fortune forward into the

:29:40.:29:43.

Jamaican squad. Thank you for having me. Let us get back outside for that

:29:44.:29:49.

rainy 400-metre hurdle final with Andrew Cotter and Colin Jackson. Let

:29:50.:29:56.

him get back to his Border Collie. The rain is still, it is getting

:29:57.:30:00.

heavier if anything. Some of these Fleetwoods are in the wet, it is a

:30:01.:30:05.

good lane to have lane nine. Hussein is in the outside and it is pretty

:30:06.:30:14.

dry. -- athletes. Since then they have flooded again.

:30:15.:30:18.

This event lost the quickest in the world at the very first stage. He

:30:19.:30:26.

was disqualified for running out of his lane. The USA still with two

:30:27.:30:33.

challengers one the Olympic champion Kerron Clement. Do Norway have a

:30:34.:30:40.

hope of gold for Warholm. He will bury himself in the first 200. He is

:30:41.:30:46.

from the west coast of Norway, he is not unfamiliar with this type of

:30:47.:30:51.

weather. But he runs hard, over the first stages of the race and the way

:30:52.:30:56.

Clement and TJ homes they tend to come back. Like Mowatt and Samba.

:30:57.:31:00.

This might be a fascinating race. Kerron Clement, the Olympic

:31:01.:31:11.

champion, who has won this title twice before, in 2007 in Osaka and

:31:12.:31:19.

2009 in Berlin. He is the old man of the line-up, at 31. It's such a

:31:20.:31:27.

brutal event as well, and takes its toll on your body. It is. They

:31:28.:31:34.

called this the man killer. That is its nickname, the 400 metre hurdles.

:31:35.:31:39.

The technical side of it, the speed and endurance side of it. A lot of

:31:40.:31:44.

hard work to get these guys to the final. Looking at the list, it's

:31:45.:31:52.

hard to call. You set it up beautifully, because you did list

:31:53.:31:57.

the people who are going to be heading out early, very aggressive

:31:58.:32:00.

over the first eight hurdles. Then with Kerron Clement flooring them

:32:01.:32:06.

all back. That's what we expect to happen, but will it be enough? Don't

:32:07.:32:11.

forget Warholm as well. Very talented. It's going to be excited.

:32:12.:32:17.

Santos on the outside as well. All the finalist in the men's 400

:32:18.:32:31.

metres hurdles, let's meet them. Hussain, we mentioned him on the

:32:32.:32:37.

outside, who was roared home from his home crowd in Zurich three years

:32:38.:32:43.

ago to win the title. One the Diamond League as well. He's got a

:32:44.:32:49.

chance here. Copello, runs for Turkey now, European champion. TJ

:32:50.:33:04.

Holmes. I do not know where the letter J comes from. Won his heat,

:33:05.:33:16.

won his semifinal. Samba of Fatah. Don't know if he's going to run in

:33:17.:33:22.

the cap and shades. Originally from Mauritania, 21 years old. And this

:33:23.:33:28.

man, Norway's rising star, who will whip himself up into a frenzy. He's

:33:29.:33:37.

all energy and noise. Norway dreaming of their first medal, their

:33:38.:33:42.

first gold. And Kerron Clement, the Olympic champion. He'd just got

:33:43.:33:52.

Karsten Warholm on the line in the semifinal. Both were gumming pretty

:33:53.:34:00.

full out. Kemar Mowatt, runs on the US circuit, at university in

:34:01.:34:05.

Arkansas. Tends to finish strongly. And Juander Santos. His older

:34:06.:34:15.

brother took silver here in 2012. A pretty wretched lane to have on the

:34:16.:34:19.

inside anyway in the hurdles, because it's a bit tighter, but

:34:20.:34:26.

tonight it's wetter as well. Samba of cat are is going to run in the

:34:27.:34:35.

baseball cap. That is a bit of a first, but keeping the rain out of

:34:36.:34:41.

his eyes. I suppose there's a thinking behind it. Juander Santos

:34:42.:34:45.

of the Dominican Republic in lane two. Mowatt, Clement, Warholm,

:34:46.:34:59.

Samba, Holmes, Copello and Hussain, the final of the men's 400 metre

:35:00.:35:00.

hurdles. How fast will Karsten Warholm go in

:35:01.:35:15.

lane five? Look at him powering through the rain and powering over

:35:16.:35:22.

the bend. TJ Holmes being swallowed up by Warholm. He is digging in.

:35:23.:35:26.

We'll have to find something in the home straight. Copello is going

:35:27.:35:34.

well. Warholm in front at the moment, but Clement making a move.

:35:35.:35:39.

TJ Holmes a long way back. Has Warholm spent too much? He's a long

:35:40.:35:47.

way clear but there is a long way to go. Clement chasing him down.

:35:48.:35:48.

Warholm hanging on. Warholm takes it from Clement and

:35:49.:36:03.

Copello. Karsten Warholm, his face says it all. He is the world

:36:04.:36:08.

champion and has Norway's first gold. Clement couldn't get there.

:36:09.:36:16.

Karsten Warholm with a time, 48.35. In these conditions, what a run that

:36:17.:36:22.

is to take the world title. Tricky conditions, but what they run by

:36:23.:36:27.

this young man. Incredible. Committed from the beginning. He

:36:28.:36:32.

decided he was going to take it out, and they would have to run him down

:36:33.:36:38.

to take the title. Put himself in an excellent position. He has hung on

:36:39.:36:43.

before. People know what he's capable of. I think it was a risky

:36:44.:36:49.

business to let him get off to that kind of start without challenging

:36:50.:36:54.

him a bit earlier. No event has a more fascinating event than the 400

:36:55.:36:59.

metres hurdles, and Samba knows that. He died a death in the last

:37:00.:37:07.

200 metres. This year, Warholm has just been concentrating on the

:37:08.:37:13.

hurdles and has left all other events behind. The Norwegian fans

:37:14.:37:18.

can celebrate. You can see the power that Warholm has. Some thought

:37:19.:37:23.

Clement was going to get there, but not this time. We have seen Clement

:37:24.:37:27.

leaves bigger gaps than that before and managed to come through to take

:37:28.:37:33.

the title. But not on this occasion. Look at that young man. He is

:37:34.:37:41.

enjoying that now, isn't he? It will be interesting to see him on the lap

:37:42.:37:46.

of honour. Let's look at this again. He was out so quickly, moving up on

:37:47.:37:52.

Samba by the first barrier, who had a good race himself in the latter

:37:53.:37:59.

stages. He committed himself early, and has a gap with Clement early.

:38:00.:38:05.

The key is keeping your stride pattern but increasing your

:38:06.:38:08.

frequency. Get more turnover but keep your stride the same. As you

:38:09.:38:14.

start to open up that stride length, it gets more comfortable. At this

:38:15.:38:19.

stage, he will have no problems, because the fatigue will not have

:38:20.:38:24.

set in. When he can see the finish and not feel anybody around him, he

:38:25.:38:31.

has to think, hold on in there. Samba started to rock and roll

:38:32.:38:35.

there. Hit the barrier, and that was his race done. Clement, and Copello,

:38:36.:38:45.

couldn't get there. Really good to see this. An impressive performance

:38:46.:38:50.

from this young man. When he won the Diamond League in Oslo, when he

:38:51.:38:53.

thought he was good, but now he's come to London and shown he can take

:38:54.:39:02.

on the best in the world, perform at an event like this, and beat them.

:39:03.:39:07.

When you lose your leg at the 400 metre hurdles you are gone, and

:39:08.:39:16.

Samba drags across the line. Copello on the outside was keeping his form

:39:17.:39:21.

well. We thought Warholm was going to fade, but he had more than enough

:39:22.:39:28.

to stay clear of Copello and Clement and take victory. Norway's first

:39:29.:39:33.

told. Don't know if he thought it was a bit closer than that. Looking

:39:34.:39:39.

up for confirmation. Realisation that you are the world champion.

:39:40.:39:51.

Actually terrifying. He is the 400 hurdles champion, beating the

:39:52.:39:55.

Olympic champion in the process. Norway can celebrate. They will

:39:56.:40:04.

celebrate for a long time. So the result of the men's 400 metre

:40:05.:40:09.

hurdles. It's been pointed out to me that that is Norway's track gold

:40:10.:40:24.

since 1987. Warholm, the gold. Bronze for the Olympic champion,

:40:25.:40:29.

Clement. STUDIO: Karsten Warholm, former

:40:30.:40:34.

decathlete, former European decathlete champion. Made the

:40:35.:40:38.

transition to the 400 metres hurdles. An incredible successful

:40:39.:40:44.

one so young, and to start the event so late. Starting the event late,

:40:45.:40:49.

but I save time and time again, combined events is a great platform

:40:50.:40:54.

for any athlete to launch themselves. There are a few

:40:55.:40:58.

heptathlete and decathlete who have gone on to do single events. I'd

:40:59.:41:05.

like to know how many there are. We have a statistical team! What a

:41:06.:41:10.

fantastic, commanding performance. And another nation on the board in

:41:11.:41:17.

these truly wide-ranging World Championships. We have seen Chinese

:41:18.:41:23.

take the gold in the shot put, which is China's first gold. What a

:41:24.:41:28.

fantastic achievement for one so young, from Norway. He did run the

:41:29.:41:37.

perfect race, but still, you've got the Olympic champion in there. It

:41:38.:41:43.

says everything. It's just a reaction. Terrifyingly beautiful.

:41:44.:41:48.

It's everything that's beyond his wildest dream. But he did it tonight

:41:49.:41:54.

in those conditions. Wonderful, wonderful scenes. Norwegian could,

:41:55.:42:02.

Norwegian Wood. And he did. Next up, a single lap on the track, but there

:42:03.:42:11.

are no hurdles. The women's 400 metre final coming up, when those

:42:12.:42:17.

Viking hats have had enough. Going to join Michael now in the homework

:42:18.:42:23.

corner. Shaunae Miller-Uibo and Allyson Phillips had that amazing

:42:24.:42:32.

duel in the Olympic final. Felix is the world champion from 2015. Is it

:42:33.:42:40.

all about these two? Primarily, yes. Both are 200 metres specialists. We

:42:41.:42:45.

have known Allyson Felix better as a 200 metre runner over the years.

:42:46.:42:51.

Let's have a look at Shaunae Miller-Uibo in her semifinal. We can

:42:52.:42:55.

compare and contrast Miller-Uibo and Felix. Miller-Uibo runs the race in

:42:56.:43:04.

an even pace and stride frequency all the way around the track. She

:43:05.:43:08.

doesn't really get out hard and then take that break. She is very evenly

:43:09.:43:15.

paced, which really works for her with that long stride she has. A

:43:16.:43:22.

very tall, rangy athlete. No real movement. Running the same pace,

:43:23.:43:29.

same technique, same stride. Positions herself perfectly here in

:43:30.:43:35.

the semifinal, and is able to ease home, already relaxing in her

:43:36.:43:39.

semifinal. She will have a lot left in her tank from the semifinal a

:43:40.:43:45.

couple of days ago, so will be quite fresh for her final tonight. Looking

:43:46.:43:55.

at Allyson Felix in contrast. In her semifinal, she runs a little bit

:43:56.:43:59.

different. Comes from a 200 metres specialist background, and Olympic

:44:00.:44:03.

and world champion at 200 metres. Get out hard. Starts to relax a bit

:44:04.:44:08.

down the back stretch. Nice, long stride. She is not as tall as

:44:09.:44:14.

Miller-Uibo, but she has really long legs. Short torso, long legs. She

:44:15.:44:20.

starts to take a bit of a break there, as a 200 metres specialist,

:44:21.:44:33.

not having the endurance that Miller-Uibo has. Then starts to

:44:34.:44:35.

really push coming home. Because she is in the semifinal, she starts to

:44:36.:44:39.

relax, and relaxes too much. Then you see Naser coming up, and Felix

:44:40.:44:45.

notices her as well. That was a different way to qualify and took a

:44:46.:44:50.

bit more out of her, but the two of them run differently, so we have two

:44:51.:44:57.

different approaches. The athlete we saw there, Naser, only 18 from

:44:58.:45:02.

Bahrain. She has run personal bests every round in this championship, so

:45:03.:45:08.

she has potential for a medal as well. Could she be an interloper?

:45:09.:45:15.

She is very young, only 18. But she has acquitted herself very well

:45:16.:45:19.

here. Doesn't have championship experience. You have to ask how long

:45:20.:45:24.

that will last, those personal bests. In terms of reading the race,

:45:25.:45:32.

what you said about the two contrasting styles of Miller-Uibo

:45:33.:45:36.

day and Felix, at what part of the race can you tell who has the

:45:37.:45:43.

advantage? Once they get around 250, you will start to see... The only

:45:44.:45:52.

problem, in lanes two and seven, they are quite far apart. When they

:45:53.:45:57.

get 250 metres into the race, we will see who has the advantage. It

:45:58.:46:01.

should play very well down the home stretch. This will be a fantastic

:46:02.:46:09.

race. We saw an amazing finish last year with Miller-Uibo diving across

:46:10.:46:12.

the finish line to take the gold medal. We could see another tonight.

:46:13.:46:19.

Let's get outside, because they are coming out, making that spectacular

:46:20.:46:23.

showbiz entrance they do. The final event of the night, the women's 400

:46:24.:46:30.

metre final. Is it going to be a straightforward battle for gold and

:46:31.:46:36.

silver with Miller-Uibo and Allyson Felix, or will there be a surprise

:46:37.:46:37.

here? I think it is down to those two.

:46:38.:46:46.

Allyson Felix has been specific with her preparation for these

:46:47.:46:48.

Championships she hasn't raced too much. She had that ankle injury last

:46:49.:46:53.

year, there was a slight delay. She wants it. She was upset she was

:46:54.:47:00.

beaten last year, I think the experience, the hunger, is going to

:47:01.:47:05.

see her through. She is one of the most popular female athletes I think

:47:06.:47:12.

for an age. She is so popular. Very popular, one of the top medallists

:47:13.:47:17.

at the Championships over the history, I think she is the third

:47:18.:47:23.

ranked in terms of most medals. I talked to her, she is soft spoken

:47:24.:47:28.

but she really perked up when we started talking about this and how

:47:29.:47:33.

much she wants a World Championship at 400 metres. She has nine World

:47:34.:47:38.

Championship medals Allyson Felix, nine gold, she wants the tenth, is

:47:39.:47:42.

today her day? Steve Cram is calling this one.

:47:43.:47:47.

Her superb career as a 200-metre runner, when she moved up to four,

:47:48.:47:54.

looked at attempting the double. I say only she has won that 400-metre

:47:55.:48:04.

title and pipped last year by just seven hundredth of a seconds by

:48:05.:48:08.

Shaunae Miller-Uibo. She hasn't won a world title at 400-metre, this

:48:09.:48:12.

would be her first at this distance. Shaunae Miller-Uibo. She is

:48:13.:48:16.

attempting to become the first to win a double at the World

:48:17.:48:20.

Championship, the 200 and 400. Both on their own quest, because she has

:48:21.:48:27.

had to run a round of the 200 already, Shaunae Miller-Uibo, she

:48:28.:48:32.

had that extra race but she has looked to me, supremely confident,

:48:33.:48:38.

and, the one to beat for me. So Shericka Jackson on the inside for

:48:39.:48:43.

Jamaica, then the veteran 35-year-old Novlene Williams-Mills,

:48:44.:48:46.

of Jamaica, she was in the final in 2007, when just pipped by Christine

:48:47.:48:54.

Ohuruogu, be mind me with -- behind me with our radio colleagues.

:48:55.:49:00.

Phyllis Francis in six. Shaunae Miller-Uibo, Mcpherson and then in

:49:01.:49:05.

the lane nine Mupopo of Zambia. The African champion from last year,

:49:06.:49:11.

has got a new personal best of 200. She may go hard. Mcpherson will

:49:12.:49:15.

chase her home. The bronze-medallist from 2012. She received that in a

:49:16.:49:21.

ceremony at the beginning of the Championships because of a drug

:49:22.:49:25.

disqualification. At the age of 16 she won the world junior title. The

:49:26.:49:32.

world youth the year after. Here she is heading for her second global

:49:33.:49:39.

gold medal for her. Phyllis Francis of the US UK, fifth in that final in

:49:40.:49:46.

Rio last year. She is the defending champion, Allyson Felix. Semifinal

:49:47.:49:58.

defeat but can she take this world title again? Naser. Such a talent.

:49:59.:50:07.

Charging down the home straight in that semifinal. Two national

:50:08.:50:10.

records. Already at these Championships.

:50:11.:50:17.

I said that race in 2007, she almost had it won, didn't she. With 15

:50:18.:50:24.

metres to go, then, Christine Ohuruogu snatched it away. Shericka

:50:25.:50:37.

Jackson. Two bronze medals in the last two global finals. This time

:50:38.:50:40.

for her it will be tough on the inside. But she has been close to 50

:50:41.:50:47.

seconds this year. So the women's 400-metre final, the

:50:48.:50:56.

three medallists from Rio. Shaunae Miller-Uibo the favourite. Naser,

:50:57.:51:05.

the new youngster, can she get among it in lane four?

:51:06.:51:22.

Shaunae Miller-Uibo started quickly in seven. Felix will be aware of

:51:23.:51:28.

that and will try and hang on to her in the back straight. Also started

:51:29.:51:34.

quickly is Mupopo of Zambia. Felix is on terms with Shaunae

:51:35.:51:36.

Miller-Uibo. Naser is is a long way behind at the moment in the red of

:51:37.:51:46.

Bahrain. Through 200 metres. Metres. Look at Shaunae Miller-Uibo.

:51:47.:51:49.

Stretching round that top bend. Taking the advantage. Francis coming

:51:50.:51:54.

back, Naser will finish quickly, Jackson on the inside. But it's the

:51:55.:51:58.

Olympic champion, striding away at the moment, can she last this out.

:51:59.:52:04.

Francis is finishing very quickly. Felix could be out the medals.

:52:05.:52:07.

Shaunae Miller-Uibo has pulled. Francis is going to take it. Naser

:52:08.:52:13.

gets the silver. Well I don't think she pulled a

:52:14.:52:21.

muscle but she completely collapsed. I have never seen anybody of that

:52:22.:52:25.

stature chur and that ability in a 400-metre final, with just 20 metres

:52:26.:52:38.

to go, completely fall apart. What a turn up. Incredible Phyllis Francis

:52:39.:52:43.

is the World Championship and a new personal best. Naser came through

:52:44.:52:47.

for the silver, just ahead of Felix, who I thought wasn't going to get a

:52:48.:52:52.

medal 25 metres from the line. They are all looking at the board,

:52:53.:52:57.

they are all looking at the screen, trying to wonder what happened

:52:58.:53:01.

there, and I have never seen a more subdued World Champion. She can't

:53:02.:53:04.

believe it. Have you ever seen anything like that? I have never

:53:05.:53:08.

seen anything like that, she is running great at this point, as we

:53:09.:53:12.

expected. Down the back stretch this is shaping up at this point to be a

:53:13.:53:18.

fantastic race. Allyson Felix is giving chase, she has her eye on

:53:19.:53:24.

her, and at 200, Shaunae Miller-Uibo had a slight lead but it would seem

:53:25.:53:28.

that Allyson Felix has the advantage being on two lanes on the inside,

:53:29.:53:32.

but, at this point I felt Shaunae Miller-Uibo doesn't look like she is

:53:33.:53:36.

going to come back, you wonder if he has gone out too hard. She looks

:53:37.:53:41.

strong, you feel she is not coming back, she is Saturdaying to pull

:53:42.:53:44.

away. Allyson Felix on the right side is starting to fade. You see

:53:45.:53:48.

Francis coming up on the inside with a storm and the young 18-year-old

:53:49.:53:53.

Naser coming up as well. There is a, that is either a hamstring, or a

:53:54.:53:58.

strain of some muscle, maybe just a cramp that pulled and let go, when

:53:59.:54:02.

an athlete buckles like that and hops up in the air, that means that

:54:03.:54:06.

one muscle went, you feel it, and you hop up in the air, to try to

:54:07.:54:11.

relieve the pressure, as opposed to continuing the stride. Let us just

:54:12.:54:16.

watch this again. Everything looks fantastic at this point. She is on

:54:17.:54:20.

her way home, no issues. Just continued this. Through to the

:54:21.:54:25.

finish line and you are good but there it starts to go. Right. There,

:54:26.:54:30.

it starts to go. That is a hamstring or something, it is obviously not a

:54:31.:54:37.

major pull or grade through strain because you wouldn't be able to

:54:38.:54:41.

continue running. It will be best interesting to air what happened you

:54:42.:54:45.

can't take away anything from Francis in the middle. She has been

:54:46.:54:50.

running great this year and took advantage of the issue with Shaunae

:54:51.:54:54.

Miller-Uibo but took advantage and took over Allyson Felix who we

:54:55.:54:59.

expected to be first or second in this race, but, was never going to

:55:00.:55:03.

catch Miller until that happened. You see the strain, you see at that

:55:04.:55:11.

point... That is just, I mean, you don't know exactly what it was at

:55:12.:55:15.

that point, but there was something that happened with Shaunae

:55:16.:55:18.

Miller-Uibo but Francis is now the World Champion and I am sure that

:55:19.:55:21.

Allyson Felix will be disappointed in her performance.

:55:22.:55:27.

If you had said to Allyson Felix, your team-mate is going to finish

:55:28.:55:32.

ahead of you, and, Miller won't be in the top three, she would have

:55:33.:55:36.

givendown of those Miller-Uibo but Francis is now the World Champion

:55:37.:55:38.

and I am sure that Allyson Felix will be disappointed in her

:55:39.:55:39.

performance. If you had said to Allyson Felix,

:55:40.:55:42.

your team-mate is going to finish ahead of you, and, Miller won't be

:55:43.:55:45.

in the top three, she would have givendown of those looks, that would

:55:46.:55:48.

have said "You have to be kidding me.". I think, maybe she has

:55:49.:55:50.

overcooked that bit. Michael will know better. This would never have

:55:51.:55:52.

happened to Michael. At this point, you know, that whole, I have nothing

:55:53.:55:55.

left, she is locking at the screen, her foot drags there and that drag,

:55:56.:55:58.

you know, she can't pick her knees up. When you do that you lose that

:55:59.:56:01.

momentum, she manages to keep it going, whether it was something

:56:02.:56:04.

caused that or whether it was utter fatigue, you are trying to keep

:56:05.:56:08.

driving to the line and just wasn't able to, when she dragged her foot,

:56:09.:56:13.

and lost all that momentum, the little bit of momentum she had left,

:56:14.:56:21.

not much. But you cannot fault Phyllis Francis. Watch her focus

:56:22.:56:25.

here, she doesn't know anything else but focussing ahead, doesn't matter

:56:26.:56:29.

what is going on around her, she knows she is passing Felix, thinking

:56:30.:56:35.

I have a medal. All a sudden smaun smaun -- Shaunae Miller-Uibo goes

:56:36.:56:38.

and she is in the front. It happens so quickly, and the last 20 metres

:56:39.:56:45.

but she is the World Champion. Gold for America, but not to whom we

:56:46.:56:50.

might have thought, had Shaunae Miller-Uibo faltered. She did, big

:56:51.:56:55.

style. Didn't get a medal. Allyson Felix gets the bronze. Awe new

:56:56.:57:02.

national record for Naser, the teenager getting on the rostrum and

:57:03.:57:09.

Phyllis Francis is the new champion and a new personal best. What an

:57:10.:57:15.

extraordinary race. We could have salt there and thought about perm

:57:16.:57:18.

theys for two days and we would not have come up with the way that

:57:19.:57:22.

finished. I have no idea what happened. As I look at the replay,

:57:23.:57:29.

typically, if an athlete is starting to fatigue that the point, you would

:57:30.:57:33.

see fatigue. We didn't see any fatigue and she would have kept

:57:34.:57:37.

doing what she is doing, but, I don't know if she tripped over her

:57:38.:57:42.

own foot, and I don't know how do you that, I just don't know how that

:57:43.:57:47.

would have happened. Would she caught her toe? I wonder whether it

:57:48.:57:55.

is the cap accept that cramps. You can't lift your knee up if that

:57:56.:58:00.

happened. That may be why she released. If it was the ham string

:58:01.:58:05.

you are down on the ground. That is true, you might have a point there.

:58:06.:58:10.

The only reason that I wonder about that, Denise, is because she looked

:58:11.:58:15.

like, herself, like what happened. I don't know what happened. She

:58:16.:58:17.

doesn't look like she understands what happens. You can see it's the

:58:18.:58:23.

left leg causing the problem. Something happened there and she was

:58:24.:58:28.

uncomfortable. It was very shocking right. It was bizarre. Five metres

:58:29.:58:34.

from the finish line. She had it won, but amazing what we have got

:58:35.:58:42.

here, is a 18-year-old World Championship silver mid list, who

:58:43.:58:48.

ran a fantastic series of races, throughout this Championship, to get

:58:49.:58:52.

herself in silver medal position for Bahrain, Nateser. The world youth

:58:53.:58:56.

champion so she has been at the top of her game and shown that potential

:58:57.:59:02.

for a while but at 18, we talk about the young athletes getting

:59:03.:59:06.

experiences, she didn't need that. She came to her first major and has

:59:07.:59:11.

delivered. There Francis has done one better, she has taken the bold.

:59:12.:59:16.

As you said she has -- gold, you would never have suspected she would

:59:17.:59:20.

have finished the top of the pile with Shaunae Miller-Uibo down in

:59:21.:59:24.

fourth. We would never have suggested that. I would hope Francis

:59:25.:59:31.

was hoping she would win. She needed to do what she did. You can't take

:59:32.:59:36.

anything away from her. She ran a personal best. A personal best to

:59:37.:59:41.

win this. You can't take anything away from her h took advantage of

:59:42.:59:47.

the issue with Shaunae Miller-Uibo, she beat Allyson Felix straight up,

:59:48.:59:52.

fair and square, and Alison did not have a great race there. She was

:59:53.:59:57.

fifth in Rio, he is a gold-medallist in the relay team of course, great

:59:58.:00:02.

big time experience she she has had. She has had a lot of experience.

:00:03.:00:07.

Sometimes you have an athlete with the calibre of Felix and you can

:00:08.:00:11.

decide this race is her, but she ran her race, she was strong, she was

:00:12.:00:16.

confident, personal best, it is a great run for her, really well done.

:00:17.:00:27.

Let's have a little look at what that has done. I'm so pleased,

:00:28.:00:34.

because the USA really needed another medal! I'm so glad that they

:00:35.:00:41.

have added to their tally. Did you predict that for the US? 28th. We

:00:42.:00:50.

are getting close, moving all the time. It was so nearly the first

:00:51.:00:56.

gold, for the Bahamas, but not to be. We saw Norway get their first

:00:57.:01:03.

goals, and China as well. First gold in the shot put. What a spread of

:01:04.:01:09.

nations. And the Bahraini athlete getting the silver. That's on there.

:01:10.:01:20.

A silver and a gold for Bahrain. Shall we go over to the touch screen

:01:21.:01:28.

and one final piece of analysis? Let's take a look at this 400 metre

:01:29.:01:34.

final again. It was quite bizarre. We knew this was going to be a

:01:35.:01:40.

fantastic race, just didn't expect to end it the way it did. Felix in

:01:41.:01:46.

the middle of the track gets out quick. We knew that would happen.

:01:47.:01:50.

Miller-Uibo got out a little bit quicker than I expected. I think

:01:51.:01:57.

that shocked Allyson Felix a little bit, maybe that was a bit of

:01:58.:02:02.

strategy. She may not have been expecting Miller-Uibo to run that

:02:03.:02:07.

quick, and what could have happened to Allyson Felix is, having that

:02:08.:02:13.

unexpected pace from Miller-Uibo, Allyson Felix made it a bit tighter

:02:14.:02:18.

giving chase. Miller-Uibo is in a perfect position to win this race. I

:02:19.:02:24.

expected higher at this moment to cross the finish line first. There

:02:25.:02:32.

it is again. Just a trip. We do know that her foot did actually

:02:33.:02:37.

tripped... She did have the spike off of that right foot. See this?

:02:38.:02:43.

The left foot actually hit the track? That would never happen. You

:02:44.:02:50.

would never hit the track with your toe when you are sprinting, because

:02:51.:02:55.

you have your foot up. So maybe something happened with her quad. We

:02:56.:03:02.

see her start to grimace there before she actually tripped with the

:03:03.:03:07.

left foot. She started to grimace, which would indicate that something

:03:08.:03:11.

went wrong and she felt pain somewhere. I think it may be exactly

:03:12.:03:17.

what Denise indicated, which was cramp in the quadricep, which would

:03:18.:03:22.

cause your toe to go down, and as you auto hits the track, she pops

:03:23.:03:28.

up, and then she is feeling the pain and cannot recover. The most

:03:29.:03:35.

terrible, terrible timing for poor Shaunae Miller-Uibo. Thank you,

:03:36.:03:40.

Michael, as always. We will bring you more on that as we hear it.

:03:41.:03:45.

Denise, thank you very much. We are going to have lots of hot chocolate

:03:46.:03:50.

and get warm. First, let's remind you of the action coming your way

:03:51.:03:56.

tomorrow. We will be on BBC Two from 6am. More action to come tomorrow

:03:57.:04:02.

night, including captain Eilidh Doyle going in the 400 metres

:04:03.:04:09.

hurdles. And that wonderful triple jump final. The temperature is

:04:10.:04:14.

supposed to be a lot warmer and not raining tomorrow. Will Christian

:04:15.:04:20.

Taylor you're finally propel himself towards Jonathan Edwards' world

:04:21.:04:25.

record? If he wins by two centimetres, like in the women's, it

:04:26.:04:30.

definitely will be. We are off for hot chocolate. Where are you? We are

:04:31.:04:38.

waiting for you to bring the hot chocolate over to us. The team are

:04:39.:04:45.

here. Tony is showing he is a hard and individual. Colin and I, we

:04:46.:04:50.

don't care, just as long as we are warm. We are wearing the coats.

:04:51.:04:56.

There are a few hard-core fans waiting with us here. All seven of

:04:57.:05:06.

them making a noise. That's fine. That's my family! The rest of them

:05:07.:05:12.

couldn't get home more quickly. Let's talk about long jump first.

:05:13.:05:17.

Starting with a British qualifier in the final, Lorraine Ugen. Superb,

:05:18.:05:27.

really. Took all three jumps, though probably didn't need to. Here we see

:05:28.:05:33.

her on film. It was so wet out there. Difficult for them. If you

:05:34.:05:38.

could dream up conditions, this would be right up there. Let me make

:05:39.:05:43.

it difficult for you to qualify. I will run you into a headwind, with

:05:44.:05:49.

the rain and the cold. The celebration into the board, but job

:05:50.:05:53.

done, Lorraine. -- the celebration into the board. Does she have the

:05:54.:06:03.

leading distance after this evening? Nobody got the qualifying distance,

:06:04.:06:12.

so she did well. Competing for a neutral flag, Kenny Shah. I have

:06:13.:06:26.

been working for a long time today. Not only Olympic champion, but has

:06:27.:06:30.

the 100 and 200 metres title to her name. It is important, isn't it, to

:06:31.:06:39.

get that good sprint, especially when it is so wet. It is. Here is

:06:40.:06:48.

Spanovic on the runway. Creates the speed at the right moment, going

:06:49.:06:53.

into the board and accelerating off. She had a great indoor season. You

:06:54.:06:58.

can see how difficult these conditions are. Grade seven metre

:06:59.:07:04.

jumpers are struggling in these conditions. Hopefully, it will dry

:07:05.:07:14.

out. Lorraine Ugen, yes. But unfortunately, Shara Proctor and

:07:15.:07:17.

Jazmin Sawyers, not a good night for them. Proctor has not competed since

:07:18.:07:24.

that car accident she had that her attorney. Going off a little bit too

:07:25.:07:29.

high off the board and not carrying her speed across. It has been tough

:07:30.:07:34.

for her, coming back from injury. She was in that top spot right

:07:35.:07:43.

until... Jazmin Sawyers said she was very disappointed. She has not been

:07:44.:07:49.

in the form we have seen her in the previous year. Not a lot of speed on

:07:50.:07:55.

the runway. She was invited to these championships, she didn't qualify.

:07:56.:08:00.

So good on her for being here. The guys were impressed with Lorraine

:08:01.:08:06.

Ugen's speed. Going into that final, with good conditions, could she have

:08:07.:08:11.

a child? I think so. It is about holding your nerve when you get to

:08:12.:08:18.

the final, and who wants it more. Friday evening that final, Lorraine

:08:19.:08:23.

Ugen going at 7:10pm. Let's have a look at the men's hammer. Nick

:08:24.:08:29.

Miller going for Great Britain. Got himself automatic qualification

:08:30.:08:34.

pretty quickly. This was fantastic. It was more like a swimming pool.

:08:35.:08:42.

Went off to the left, but did it, first round, thank you very much.

:08:43.:08:46.

For all of the events out there in these conditions, is the hammer the

:08:47.:08:53.

worst one? There was talk about suspending the competition

:08:54.:08:59.

completely until 930, -- 9:30pm, which... A couple of people fell

:09:00.:09:05.

over in the rain, but Nick Miller trained really well. Trains with

:09:06.:09:09.

Sophie Hitchon out there in California, and this is not

:09:10.:09:14.

Californian weather. This is an incident that didn't go quite

:09:15.:09:18.

bright. You've got the benefit on me. I have not seen that. This is

:09:19.:09:26.

what can go wrong with the hammer. Straight into the cage. Do we wait

:09:27.:09:30.

for that to come down before we registered the distance? If they get

:09:31.:09:39.

hooked up in there, normally they just bring out a ladder. It is a

:09:40.:09:45.

very big cage. You can't leave it up there. She's got a stick! These

:09:46.:09:51.

volunteers did not sign up for this. I don't know if they passed an exam

:09:52.:10:02.

for it either. You have a 7.25 kilos all hanging above your head. You

:10:03.:10:08.

just have a stick! And he's like, why have you not got my hammer down?

:10:09.:10:17.

Did it stay there? After the show, me, Tony and Colin will be in the

:10:18.:10:24.

stadium, trying to get it back. Good luck. Shall we move things on. Let's

:10:25.:10:33.

get back to some proper action. Mo Farah back on track after his 10,000

:10:34.:10:41.

metre gold on Saturday. He was alongside Andy Butchart of Great

:10:42.:10:44.

Britain in the 5000 metres. Here is what happened.

:10:45.:10:56.

COMMENTATOR: Mo controlling it. Doesn't want to lose that position

:10:57.:11:02.

now. There's still plenty in with the chance. He does this really

:11:03.:11:07.

well. When he decides to take control. He will not want to concede

:11:08.:11:14.

any position here. He will not want to do anything to give him a hard

:11:15.:11:22.

run on the last lap. 12.32. Mo looks strong. He is having to pass

:11:23.:11:29.

athletes, and that is a danger. Mo is looking and counting. Only five

:11:30.:11:37.

to go through by lights. They are lapping runners all the time.

:11:38.:11:42.

Checking his training partner on the inside. Still haven't got themselves

:11:43.:12:00.

clear. Top five. Mo is having to work quite hard here. Knight of

:12:01.:12:08.

Canada finishing quickly. He would get in the top five. Kejelcha,

:12:09.:12:14.

Edris, mower-macro... -- Mo.... Andy Butchart, at the back of that

:12:15.:12:31.

big group. Just needs to settle down and not do too much at all. He can

:12:32.:12:37.

run the last lap 70 seconds and still qualify. 65 seconds, I mean.

:12:38.:12:44.

It's not about gauging holding position. You don't have to be in

:12:45.:12:50.

the top five. There is the qualification. Ten of these

:12:51.:12:57.

athletes, and ten are pulling clear. Andy Butchart doing some counting

:12:58.:13:01.

now. Chelimo has done some maths as well. Ate there, and two from the

:13:02.:13:12.

other group. Chelimo has done very well to get himself back into this

:13:13.:13:18.

after that nasty fall. It was just early enough for him to get back in

:13:19.:13:23.

and get himself a qualifying place. Bar you and Andy Butchart is just

:13:24.:13:30.

having a chat with Chelimo. There was a lot of barging going on.

:13:31.:13:40.

So, mauve fire and Andy Butchart safely through. -- Mo Farah. Mo

:13:41.:13:50.

going for another gold medal on Saturday in the 5000 metres. It will

:13:51.:13:58.

be his final championship race. He only wants to go out in one way,

:13:59.:14:07.

doesn't he? He does. He's laughing! He really wants to go out with a

:14:08.:14:13.

victory. What was interesting was to see how he ran that race. Very safe,

:14:14.:14:19.

very cautious. Didn't really want to make mistakes or hit the deck. That

:14:20.:14:24.

was the thing, keep it safe and sound so he can do what we want him

:14:25.:14:31.

to do in the final. We need it for the benefit of this highlights

:14:32.:14:35.

programme, because there are no faces on our board! It will be great

:14:36.:14:41.

to decorate it more. It was a dangerous race, because of the

:14:42.:14:46.

conditions, because it got jagged in the 10,000 metres as well, and Mo

:14:47.:14:52.

talks about how tired he was after it. You get those races. Everybody

:14:53.:14:58.

jostling, getting a bit close, the rain splashing in their face.

:14:59.:15:04.

Unfortunately, as we see here, as they come out... He slips there. Has

:15:05.:15:14.

a little conversation and says, excuse me. Politely! Some jostling.

:15:15.:15:20.

People didn't want to run too fast. Wanted to save energy. And then down

:15:21.:15:26.

he goes. A pure accident. And then it's, can he get back? The legs come

:15:27.:15:32.

up. You cannot trip somebody behind you. Everybody else slips down and

:15:33.:15:37.

goes down a bit like dominoes. The thing here is to be calm and

:15:38.:15:41.

collected and try and wind the pack back in.

:15:42.:15:48.

Colin has agreed he will grow a pus attach if Andy Butchart gets a

:15:49.:15:59.

medal. Shall we see if there is a hash tag Colin's tash, Jackson tash?

:16:00.:16:05.

Let me ask the crowd. Do you all want to see Colin Jackson...?

:16:06.:16:09.

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE Your public have spoken. I didn't

:16:10.:16:13.

need to finish the question. They want to see you grow a tash for the

:16:14.:16:19.

final and the chants continue. Backed by popular demand, we didn't

:16:20.:16:22.

get on air last night. This is what you get. This is what you get. If

:16:23.:16:29.

you are naughty Ali sends you out here. She a friend Al of ours. Let

:16:30.:16:35.

us move on to the 200 meet e the story, the reason we weren't on

:16:36.:16:37.

yesterday because we were talking about Isaac Makwala and the fact

:16:38.:16:42.

that the IAAF decided he wasn't healthy enough to run in the 400

:16:43.:16:47.

metres so we saw him in the 200 metres in a time trial. This is what

:16:48.:16:53.

happened earlier. About 6.30 we got him on track and, whoever was in the

:16:54.:16:57.

stadium, had only one person to root for and they did. They certainly

:16:58.:17:03.

did. 18.o 40 was the time. Everyone was looking to see if he could run

:17:04.:17:09.

fast enough to get a place in the semifinal. He did that, he did that

:17:10.:17:13.

really well. He didn't stop there. Watch this.

:17:14.:17:21.

One, two, three, four, five. There you go, a little salute to say I'm

:17:22.:17:26.

healthy, feeling good and go through to the next round. He had a point to

:17:27.:17:31.

prove. Two hours later he was in the semifinals, along with the rest of

:17:32.:17:38.

him. Here is what happened. Gets a good start does

:17:39.:17:41.

Mitchell-Blake, inside him Simbine gets a good start. Makwala going

:17:42.:17:46.

well and yuck o. Mitchell-Blake is in the race. Makwala has run a

:17:47.:17:51.

brilliant brend. Young, Makwala, Mitchell-Blake trying to charge, he

:17:52.:17:53.

has to go some to get in the top two. These three are pulling away.

:17:54.:17:59.

Makwala tiring a bit. It will be Makwala and Young. Mitchell-Blake

:18:00.:18:04.

third, what a performance from Isaac Makwala.

:18:05.:18:09.

Zharnel Hughes explodes away from the starting block and Blake will

:18:10.:18:15.

move along. It is even in the outside. Good run by Richard, and

:18:16.:18:21.

the outside Iizuka. The Japanese athlete. Zharnel Hughes is trying to

:18:22.:18:29.

get through. Blake is struggling. Richards and Sani Brown takes the

:18:30.:18:36.

second automatic qualifying place. They get away. Storming round the

:18:37.:18:44.

bend. He mate in there. Webb almost on the line, the American. He is

:18:45.:18:48.

leading it though and here comes Guliyev. Van Niekerk out of it at

:18:49.:18:52.

the moment. Only the top to to go through. It is going to be Guliyev

:18:53.:18:58.

and Webb. Van Niekerk third. Let us look at the qualifier, riches, if

:18:59.:19:02.

anything was the most impressive. He is the only one easing down across

:19:03.:19:06.

the line. Mitchell-Blake through though. That is, now that van

:19:07.:19:11.

Niekerk is on the inside in the final, we will wait for the draw,

:19:12.:19:15.

Makwala is in there. He won't get one of the better lanes because he

:19:16.:19:19.

was second. Who is the favourite there? Take your pick.

:19:20.:19:23.

As we have been saying all day, because it has been raining since

:19:24.:19:28.

about 9.00 this morning conditions awful but for Isaac Makwala, two

:19:29.:19:32.

hours after he did his time trial in there, showing everybody that, mine,

:19:33.:19:36.

what a story it would be if he was to take the gold medal tomorrow. He

:19:37.:19:40.

is the fastest in the world. Conditions were slightly different

:19:41.:19:44.

when he ran the fastest time of 19.77. I think his semifinal here

:19:45.:19:48.

was really nice and controlled, he had a difficult lane to take with

:19:49.:19:53.

being lane one but he did everything just right. He didn't blast round

:19:54.:19:58.

the bend, use a lot of energy which means he would run out of energy, he

:19:59.:20:02.

kept cool, calm and worked his way through the field. He is going to be

:20:03.:20:06.

very dangerous. I haven't seen the lane draw for tomorrow, yet, but

:20:07.:20:09.

that will have a big difference to where he is positioned on the track,

:20:10.:20:13.

come the final but he is looking very impressive and also he is

:20:14.:20:18.

running angry. He said that himself. He is frustrated and angry, that can

:20:19.:20:24.

make a man dangerous. He is heartbroken, angry, dangerous is one

:20:25.:20:28.

thing and fast is what it will be, would be he has competition, the

:20:29.:20:33.

likes of Young who won that first heat will be difficult and also

:20:34.:20:39.

Richards as well. Each one of the winners if you are first, those

:20:40.:20:44.

three plus best second placer, they draw those for lanes three, four,

:20:45.:20:50.

five and six, so van Niekerk, there is a likelihood he could end up in

:20:51.:20:59.

the inside lane, one, two or nine. I will start again! They won't get the

:21:00.:21:04.

tight lane one, but van Niekerk could be on the inside or running

:21:05.:21:10.

blind out in lane eight. What about van Niekerk, because he had to

:21:11.:21:14.

qualify as one of the fastest losers and we were talking about those guys

:21:15.:21:19.

doing those double sprints. Fatigue seems to be playing a part. And

:21:20.:21:24.

also, Ore the conditions that are here, they are not conducive for

:21:25.:21:29.

good warming up. When you have fatigue legs from being hammered, it

:21:30.:21:34.

will be its part, so he really struggle and he said it took more

:21:35.:21:38.

out of him than he thought it would do, to do so many round, so I think

:21:39.:21:43.

it was a surprise for him. The winner of that race, Guliyev, he

:21:44.:21:47.

will be very very dangerous. I mean, he is strong, he has run big

:21:48.:21:51.

Championships before, he has been on this occasion where he has the

:21:52.:21:55.

opportunity, now, before r it was Usain Bolt was the man that was

:21:56.:22:01.

there, now, I think you can get this title. Michael Johnson did the

:22:02.:22:08.

200-400 double but he got to practise tip at the US

:22:09.:22:10.

Championships, so he had the experience and knew what the volume

:22:11.:22:15.

of work was, from that point of view and he was a 200-metre runner

:22:16.:22:21.

stepping up to fours. Van Niekerk is more of a 400-metre runner stepping

:22:22.:22:28.

down to four. He does look a bit fatigued, but, got to practise tip

:22:29.:22:32.

at the US Championships, so he had the experience and knew what the

:22:33.:22:35.

volume of work was, from that point of view and he was a 200-metre

:22:36.:22:37.

runner stepping up to fours. Van Niekerk is more of a 400-metre

:22:38.:22:40.

runner stepping down to four. He does look a bit fatigued, but, maybe

:22:41.:22:42.

it is gamesmanship. Got to practise tip at the US Championships, so he

:22:43.:22:45.

had the experience and knew what the volume of work was, from that point

:22:46.:22:48.

of view and he was a 200-metre runner stepping up to fours. Van

:22:49.:22:50.

Niekerk is more of a 400-metre runner stepping down to four. He

:22:51.:22:53.

does look a bit fatigued, but, maybe it is gamesmanship. "I'm going to go

:22:54.:22:56.

in as the fastest runnerment". We haven't had a chance to Taub about

:22:57.:22:58.

Nethaneel Mitchell-Blake. He is through to the final as a fastest

:22:59.:23:00.

loser and he was dints disappointed he didn't get through as an

:23:01.:23:05.

automatic runner. He has done the double at the collegiate system, the

:23:06.:23:09.

one-two victory and gone under 20 secs so he is experienced over this

:23:10.:23:13.

particular distance, now this is is a different level for him to come to

:23:14.:23:16.

a World Championships and be in the running are, he has the potential

:23:17.:23:21.

also, to get a medal. He will look at it and think I can do this, I can

:23:22.:23:25.

really get on that rostrum. If he believes it and keeps a cool head

:23:26.:23:30.

and doesn't get carried away I see no reason why he couldn't make it.

:23:31.:23:40.

He is such a breath of fresh air. He has such a great personality, he is

:23:41.:23:44.

a lovely guy and the season he has come to, that is a tough season, to

:23:45.:23:53.

come here and do it. Zharnel Hughes? He has struggled all year. What he

:23:54.:23:58.

delivered when he first arrived, he was a big name, doing the big

:23:59.:24:03.

performances, training with the superstar, training with Usain Bolt.

:24:04.:24:06.

Beautiful fluent runner, so when you see all those thins you put them

:24:07.:24:11.

together, you think this guy has a bright future, injury has stopped

:24:12.:24:15.

him from taking another step forward. How did you find... Zharnel

:24:16.:24:22.

Hughes went to the Olympics, that is a tough train a draining year, how

:24:23.:24:26.

did you find the year after the Olympics? I won my first world title

:24:27.:24:32.

so I found it find! That proves a point. Absolutely fine. Emotionally

:24:33.:24:40.

it is tough. Remember, it is tough. I had a tough Olympic Games so I was

:24:41.:24:46.

really up for come back. We haven't got long. Have a look forward, if

:24:47.:24:51.

that is OK. Ten to ten 200-metre final tomorrow nigh. Let talks about

:24:52.:24:57.

the 400-metre hurdles tonight. We thought it would be a an American on

:24:58.:25:01.

the top of the podium, it was a very different result. Let us see what

:25:02.:25:04.

happened. It is the final of the men's 400

:25:05.:25:15.

metres hurdles. How fast will Warholm go out in lane

:25:16.:25:21.

five? He has Kerron on the inside. Look at him powering through the

:25:22.:25:29.

rain and round the bend. Up alongside Samba with TJ Holmes.

:25:30.:25:34.

Warholm is digging in. Clement has left a huge amount to do. Something

:25:35.:25:39.

flies off him. Warholm out in front. Clement beginning to make a move.

:25:40.:25:44.

Samba still there as well. Warholm now, has he spent too much? Has he

:25:45.:25:48.

given too much? He is a long way clear but there is still a long way

:25:49.:25:53.

to go for Warholm. Clement is now going to chase him down, hunt him

:25:54.:25:58.

down, Warholm hanging on, driving on, for the line, Samba has gone,

:25:59.:26:06.

Warholm, for the victory, he takes it from Clement, and Warholm his

:26:07.:26:10.

face says it all, he is the World Champion and he is Norway's first

:26:11.:26:15.

gold. Well, that was some surprise he

:26:16.:26:23.

couldn't be more in disbelief. He is in a lot of pain. Lactic acid is

:26:24.:26:28.

flowing through his veins. I think said in commentary we saw what he

:26:29.:26:32.

did in the Diamond League. He is capable. . We knew he could run

:26:33.:26:38.

fast. Could he do it adds a major Championships? I think conditions

:26:39.:26:44.

certainly favoured him coming from the east side of Norway, they are

:26:45.:26:48.

used to these condition, so for him it worked so perfectly well,

:26:49.:26:52.

magical, magical moment. Let us hope he can go from strength to strength.

:26:53.:26:58.

It is nice to see a first time medallist. What it means. There is

:26:59.:27:07.

214 nations competinger for Norway to get a medal is amazing. There is

:27:08.:27:19.

the spread. Great Britain, still in that one medal, one gold, 11th spot

:27:20.:27:23.

for now, Mo Farah could be one of them, we could be talking about and

:27:24.:27:28.

Nethaneel Mitchell-Blake in the 200 metres tomorrow, adding to that

:27:29.:27:33.

tally, but that is the state of play after day five here in Rio. In Rio?

:27:34.:27:44.

It feels like Rio. I went to a very different place. You want to be in

:27:45.:27:49.

Rio. I would love to be. I don't mind where I am with you. Guys thank

:27:50.:27:56.

you very much indeed. What you might not have seen or heard earlier, is

:27:57.:28:02.

that this lot were chanting for both Toni and Colin.

:28:03.:28:13.

And go on, keep it going. 50,000 people streamed straight past

:28:14.:28:16.

us earlier, in the rain, thinking do you know what we don't want to hang

:28:17.:28:20.

out with those two, we had seven at the start of the programme, we have

:28:21.:28:25.

upped the Toni Minichiello family to 50. Thank you to them for coming

:28:26.:28:30.

down and watching us. We have been talking about Singin' in the Rain.

:28:31.:28:33.

It is too easy, see you tomorrow. Goodbye.

:28:34.:28:35.

Gabby Logan introduces day six of the World Championships in London, with Mo Farah beginning his quest for a third successive 5,000m title and the medals being decided in the women's 400m, men's 400m hurdles and women's shot-put.

It is also the semi-finals of what looks to be a wide-open men's 200m event, while Britain's world indoor bronze medallist Lorraine Ugen attempts to secure safe passage to the women's long jump final.

Farah came into these championships seeking a fifth successive global 5,000m-10,000m double. Five days after his exploits in the 10,000m, the 34-year-old is expected to reach the 5,000m final without any alarm.

Reigning women's 400m champion Allyson Felix proved her form and fitness at this venue last month by setting the fastest time of 2017, making her the favourite to win a tenth world title. In the men's 400m hurdles, world leader Kyron McMaster is vying to win a first medal of any colour for the British Virgin Islands, with Olympic champion Kerron Clement among those he has to beat.

Michael Johnson leads the analysis, with Steve Cram, Andrew Cotter, Brendan Foster and Steve Backley among the commentators. And Ore Oduba is joined by special guests to look back on the day's highlights.
