Welcome to the World Athletics Championships, thank you for joining

:00:15.:00:19.

us on BBC Two and if you have not been with us, you have just missed

:00:20.:00:26.

the final of the Gerashchenko, and that was won by Ramil Guliyev. That

:00:27.:00:32.

was possibly going to be redemption for Isaac Makwala or Van Niekerk but

:00:33.:00:43.

Guliyev, what a great run from him and what a great championship, 20.9.

:00:44.:00:53.

It was a fascinating race. It was just too much for Issac Luke one,

:00:54.:00:57.

the last two days had taken it out of him. And Van Niekerk looked like

:00:58.:01:03.

his attempt at the double had taken it out of him? It was always going

:01:04.:01:08.

to be a big risk and he seemed to be quite heavy with his silver medal.

:01:09.:01:16.

This was a race and a half, there was no big distances in these

:01:17.:01:20.

championships between the eight runners and it was the same here.

:01:21.:01:26.

Guliyev coming through the centre lane, he was the most relaxed

:01:27.:01:29.

towards the end and snatched that medal. Fantastic race, we wanted a

:01:30.:01:36.

close competition. Lots of men eagerly matched and one thing people

:01:37.:01:43.

will say looking at this is The Times were not very impressive and

:01:44.:01:50.

they were not running against any wind so the standard of the 200

:01:51.:01:57.

metres has gone down. And with Usain Bolt not there, both Jamaicans did

:01:58.:02:03.

not factor, there was no Gatlin, the grass is not in these championships,

:02:04.:02:09.

that did create a very close race and the guys were easily matched and

:02:10.:02:18.

I feel bad for Makwala, both races yesterday, he looked good but that

:02:19.:02:22.

takes its toll when you have to run both of them on the same day and

:02:23.:02:27.

then come back. He had a great start and fatigue sets in. The opposite is

:02:28.:02:36.

Wayde van Niekerk, he looked horrible yesterday, people that they

:02:37.:02:39.

should have closed the door on him yesterday and he barely got in and

:02:40.:02:44.

he gets the silver medal so he found something to be able to get back

:02:45.:02:49.

into this and he had a pretty good start. He was leading this for a

:02:50.:02:53.

while. But he started to fade because of the 400 metres rounds

:02:54.:02:59.

that he had to run earlier in the week. And Jereem Richards with the

:03:00.:03:04.

bronze medal, by one 100th of the second behind Van Niekerk. Young

:03:05.:03:15.

talent with a bright future. They will get comfortably underneath 20

:03:16.:03:20.

seconds. Mitchell-Blake, there was fatigue from the season that

:03:21.:03:25.

prohibited him being able to duplicate that 19 seconds he could

:03:26.:03:31.

accomplish earlier in the season as a personal best but he has some

:03:32.:03:35.

great championship experience, running in the US and that is a

:03:36.:03:40.

great atmosphere to compete in and fourth place is fantastic. In recent

:03:41.:03:45.

championships, Great Britain have had quite a few near misses in the

:03:46.:03:52.

200 metres. Hughes and 2015. Adam Gemili. Different names but

:03:53.:04:01.

Nethaneel Mitchell-Blake will be the name that can push on. It was weird

:04:02.:04:07.

seeing this race without Usain Bolt and the standard dipped a little

:04:08.:04:12.

bit. And it will not come back soon but that is fine, I don't care about

:04:13.:04:18.

The Times as long as I can see some tight races like this and quality

:04:19.:04:23.

races. And that is what you will see in the next couple of years.

:04:24.:04:30.

Championships in 19.9, 19.8. Maybe even 19.6 because some people are

:04:31.:04:35.

going to be capable of that. But you will not see The Times of Usain

:04:36.:04:43.

Bolt. A little bird said to me, do you know that Michael Johnson's

:04:44.:04:54.

doubles were unbelievable. 19.7, you were able to reproduce those times

:04:55.:04:59.

with a double, why is it so difficult for these guys? Most

:05:00.:05:04.

people do not train for the double and Makwala fell into it, he ran 200

:05:05.:05:11.

metres very fast and he is built for that. I think Van Niekerk, 2015, he

:05:12.:05:19.

won the World Championship, his first World Championship and was

:05:20.:05:24.

taken off back the track on a stretcher and he talked about

:05:25.:05:27.

fatigue and was hating to run the 400, then you probably hate training

:05:28.:05:38.

for 400 and then take the 400 and is training and it is exponentially

:05:39.:05:42.

harder when you say you will run that at the World Championship and

:05:43.:05:47.

back that up with 200, you have a lot of short rest volume training

:05:48.:05:52.

and lactic acid is building up on a daily basis and when that is the

:05:53.:05:56.

case, you can accomplish the double but without that training you

:05:57.:06:03.

cannot. 22 years since this man did the double and it will be some time

:06:04.:06:07.

before Van gets another crack. We can hear from Nethaneel

:06:08.:06:15.

Mitchell-Blake. Looking back at the replay, and you realise you are

:06:16.:06:18.

fourth in the world. What is going through your mind? First of all, I

:06:19.:06:29.

am glad to get the medal, -- I was not good enough on the day. You came

:06:30.:06:34.

into the final tonight, where you looking at the medals? I wanted to

:06:35.:06:41.

win. I focused on winning my race, executing my own race but I left it

:06:42.:06:48.

all on the track today, I guess I will look back on this down the line

:06:49.:06:54.

but fourth place, it was just not enough. This is all relatively new

:06:55.:07:01.

for you but you must be so proud from last year until now, you look

:07:02.:07:06.

like you belong on this stage? I learned a lot last year, big

:07:07.:07:12.

learning curve, and you have to learn the hard way, I learned the

:07:13.:07:20.

hard way last year, full credit to my coach, and people that allow me

:07:21.:07:24.

to train and come over and they make it very easy. I encourage everybody

:07:25.:07:30.

to get active, it is a great summer, Great Britain, it is possible.

:07:31.:07:40.

Tremendous effort to be fourth in the world and it will only get

:07:41.:07:44.

better. And I would like to say thank you to the crowd, they were

:07:45.:07:49.

amazing. Great interview from Nethaneel Mitchell-Blake, if this

:07:50.:07:55.

has inspired you, go to the BBC Sport website. And think about that,

:07:56.:08:02.

in that moment, that was quite impressive from the young man.

:08:03.:08:07.

Britain has better facilities than ever before, especially for

:08:08.:08:13.

athletics, in some parts of the country, but all of them, but it

:08:14.:08:18.

takes more than just facilities, it is about attitude and stepping up.

:08:19.:08:25.

Christian Taylor, his training group, in the training groups, it is

:08:26.:08:29.

Olympic and world champions, Dafne Schippers, it is the environment and

:08:30.:08:35.

how that brings out the best in you. Every day on the track. He clearly

:08:36.:08:41.

has that mentality, he did not try to sneak the medal, he was aiming

:08:42.:08:48.

high? He went there to do the best he could, let the chips fall, fourth

:08:49.:08:53.

place was a good finish. We can hear from the world champion,

:08:54.:09:00.

Johnson-Thompson is with us. Can you put in towards what this gold medal

:09:01.:09:05.

means to you? I am so tired. But I made it. I made it. I believe if you

:09:06.:09:16.

want something so much, you will make it, yes. When you have done the

:09:17.:09:23.

lap of honour like that, any thoughts on your mind? All the hard

:09:24.:09:31.

work and sacrifice? It is going so hard. Many races. You need to make

:09:32.:09:43.

your job. If you make it all... You can say you made the maximum, if

:09:44.:09:48.

something went wrong, it is bad. And I made it all. What was the first

:09:49.:09:56.

feeling when you crossed the line and you realised you had one? First,

:09:57.:10:04.

was I first, second or third because when you are running you can see to

:10:05.:10:10.

the left and the right, you look in front, and your run and maximum. And

:10:11.:10:17.

you got the gold, congratulations. You mentioned it was slow, the

:10:18.:10:23.

slowest since 1983, Calvert Smith. That gives Turkey their first medal

:10:24.:10:30.

in these championships, yet another nation stepping onto the medal

:10:31.:10:37.

table. It really is incredible. The United States well out in front at

:10:38.:10:44.

the top of the table. Kenya will at the top in Beijing and they are

:10:45.:10:48.

languishing behind the United States, and South Africa behind that

:10:49.:10:52.

and Jamaica, we would expect them to be near the top, they are in ninth

:10:53.:10:57.

place and Great Britain trust without gold medal from Mo Farah but

:10:58.:11:02.

there are a few days left, the relays still to come and some great

:11:03.:11:10.

performances. That was the fourth fourth! Come on, Great Britain! It

:11:11.:11:20.

has not in any way detracted from the enjoyment of these

:11:21.:11:25.

championships. Not at all! Well, not for you! It has been fantastic for

:11:26.:11:34.

the US. I expected the US not to do as well but they are on fire. Medals

:11:35.:11:39.

in places I did not expect the big crowd is fantastic, they love it, we

:11:40.:11:45.

see them every night on the way to the hotel and everybody is loving

:11:46.:11:49.

these jumping chips. Good stuff. Wonderful evening. We move on to the

:11:50.:11:56.

eighth day but before that, we go outside, I can hear the crimes, or a

:11:57.:12:08.

do-gooder must have just said hello. -- Ore must have said hello! Last

:12:09.:12:13.

night people could not get home quick enough because of the rain but

:12:14.:12:18.

tonight, we cannot keep them away! Say hello, some! Keep cheering! They

:12:19.:12:26.

have got flags. You have the camera the wrong way around, let us have a

:12:27.:12:34.

selfie. Live television! You're all on television! Say hello! They are

:12:35.:12:41.

like caged animals! It is lovely to have them and we had Sam ready in

:12:42.:12:47.

case Colin Jackson was not here in time but he is, like an absolute

:12:48.:12:53.

pro! You had a lot of stick yesterday for wearing a plain, black

:12:54.:13:01.

chopper. He is wearing his number ones today. What is that? Your best

:13:02.:13:10.

clothes! I am the only person here who has not done Strictly Come

:13:11.:13:18.

Dancing! We can reveal live that the fifth contestant on Strictly Come

:13:19.:13:23.

Dancing is... Not Tony! There is always next year! Great to have you

:13:24.:13:26.

here and the crowd. CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

:13:27.:13:32.

They will be featuring throughout the evening. Straight to the action.

:13:33.:13:39.

We will focus on Laura Miller and on Monday, that agonising fourth place

:13:40.:13:42.

in the 1500 metres and she was back with the 5K, Steve Cram and Brendan

:13:43.:13:46.

Foster doing the talking. Laura Muir is looking tired. She can

:13:47.:14:03.

surely raise her game over the last 200, tracking back inside. This'll

:14:04.:14:09.

be long and hard, she is looking hard. Obiri, then that gap. I fear

:14:10.:14:19.

for Laura Muir, Kiprotich is coming along. Kiprotich goes past Laura

:14:20.:14:30.

Muir. She has to keep going and hope that second is not as quick. Very

:14:31.:14:35.

tired Laura Muir are coming in. She is going to finish seventh, the

:14:36.:14:44.

winning time 14.56. Anxious wait. I think only five are going to go

:14:45.:14:59.

through automatically. Mccolgan is at the back of the group, she is

:15:00.:15:05.

holding on. In sixth place now, with five qualifying. She would have a

:15:06.:15:11.

bit of a chance to go through as the fastest loser but she would want to

:15:12.:15:17.

concentrate here. Mccolgan, can she so the pace over the last 200 metres

:15:18.:15:22.

that we've seen before? Closing in slightly on the leader, Huddle.

:15:23.:15:28.

Mccolgan is sixth. She's working on it. Huddle has some life in her legs

:15:29.:15:36.

but the gap is closing. Mccolgan is trying to get there alongside the

:15:37.:15:48.

Kenyan athletes, Kipkemboi. Only five go through. Huddle may be

:15:49.:15:52.

spent, Hassan passing her. Mccolgan is there. Hoolahan for the United

:15:53.:16:02.

States. Hassan will qualify. Five from six people here, dipping for

:16:03.:16:11.

the line. Mccolgan goes through. The Norwegian will go through with that

:16:12.:16:17.

time. STUDIO: That first 5000 metres heat that Laura Muir featured in was

:16:18.:16:23.

seriously fast and the girl was pushed to her limits, she was on the

:16:24.:16:27.

floor for about 15 seconds regaining her composure. Pushed as far as she

:16:28.:16:34.

could go, after the 1500. I think that was her first 5000 outdoors all

:16:35.:16:40.

season. Jele legs, running three miles there. Credit to her, through

:16:41.:16:47.

to the final. I like that she stuck to her game. Everyone was saying,

:16:48.:16:51.

don't do it, you've had injury, but she wanted to do the 15th and the

:16:52.:16:56.

five K and I'm glad she's done to it and is in the final. It can build on

:16:57.:17:01.

what she has planned for the future. Interesting that she said afterwards

:17:02.:17:06.

that despite being so shattered, she regained her composure, she said I'm

:17:07.:17:11.

all right, Quercus loser, I'll be there for the final. Mccolgan as

:17:12.:17:17.

well, personal best. Fantastic effort. Two Scots flying the flag

:17:18.:17:27.

there. Superb. Good pedigree. Congratulations to Andy Young, the

:17:28.:17:32.

coach of Laura Muir. She didn't even realise how fast she was going! She

:17:33.:17:38.

said she didn't realise the 15 minute pace. That's a good sign I

:17:39.:17:42.

think. You could tell that she was in it, she was racing, doing what is

:17:43.:17:46.

necessary to get to the final and she got a PB. Great stuff. Says a

:17:47.:17:52.

lot about the London Stadium crowd, pushing on the home favourite.

:17:53.:18:02.

Congratulations to Laura Muir. Even cheering the slow ones here! It was

:18:03.:18:08.

a fast show including the highly anticipated women's 200 metres. Here

:18:09.:18:09.

is the story of the semifinals. Silence then cheering from 60,000

:18:10.:18:25.

people. Schippers powering away. Stevens just waving that arm. Look

:18:26.:18:29.

at Schippers, she got half a metre away from Stevens. Looking around

:18:30.:18:35.

already, in periods, comfortable, moving towards the final. Strolling

:18:36.:18:39.

over the line. Stevens in second place. Safely away this time.

:18:40.:18:49.

Miller-Uibo is never the sharpest out of the blocks. They see starting

:18:50.:18:53.

quickly around the bend and so is Kambundji. Look at Kambundji. She's

:18:54.:19:02.

still trying to fight a little bit. Coming quickly, Duncan. It is these

:19:03.:19:08.

two, Miller-Uibo and Duncan and can bogey scrambling but Facey gets

:19:09.:19:15.

third. -- Kambundji scrambling. Asher-Smith is already moving well

:19:16.:19:25.

alongside Ta Lou. These three starting to separate themselves.

:19:26.:19:34.

Emmanuel has work to do. Ta Lou takes it, Asher-Smith holding on for

:19:35.:19:39.

second and she goes through. These are the qualifiers for the final.

:19:40.:19:45.

Schippers and Miller-Uibo and Ta Lou starred as the favourites, two

:19:46.:19:48.

Americans as well. Asher-Smith is in the final. Another season's Best Buy

:19:49.:19:58.

Asher-Smith, she is incredible. CHEERING

:19:59.:20:07.

They will cheer anything! We've only got so many credits. Dina

:20:08.:20:13.

Asher-Smith, you cheer her on because after the year she has had

:20:14.:20:17.

through, when she was on one foot for crying out loud and now she's in

:20:18.:20:22.

the Championship final. The bionic woman, two screws in her foot.

:20:23.:20:27.

Superb. I was a nonbeliever, I didn't think she'd get to the World

:20:28.:20:30.

Championships but she's in the final. Well done to her and her

:20:31.:20:36.

coach. Who would have called that she would be in the final of the

:20:37.:20:41.

World Championships, not just in the team? Incredible performance. I hope

:20:42.:20:44.

she appreciates what she has achieved. Hopefully she can enjoy

:20:45.:20:49.

the final tomorrow night. Dafne Schippers, looking nailed on?

:20:50.:20:54.

Incredible. I thought that could be the one, two, three there on the

:20:55.:21:03.

graphic. Schippers, it's going to take a lot to beat her. She is hot.

:21:04.:21:10.

We saw the men's 200-metre final not long ago, van Niekerk is the man

:21:11.:21:12.

many people thought would be coming out on top. We caught up with the

:21:13.:21:19.

emotional silver-medallist. Congratulations on another medal. I

:21:20.:21:23.

saw your reaction when you saw you had won the Silver, it seemed to be

:21:24.:21:28.

great delight. Some achievement. Yeah, I mean... OK?

:21:29.:22:07.

Yeah... I really feel that I worked hard for tonight. I gave it my all.

:22:08.:22:19.

And I think I've proven over and over again that I deserve what I've

:22:20.:22:26.

achieved. It was a tough week for myself. Also after the 400 metres,

:22:27.:22:32.

quite a lot of people who felt I didn't deserve it. I'm glad I could

:22:33.:22:37.

come out today and put on a good fight. I really believe this is the

:22:38.:22:41.

beginning of so much more that I can achieve. Is that where the emotions

:22:42.:22:47.

are coming from? Yeah, definitely. I worked as hard as any other

:22:48.:22:53.

competitor. I got beaten. I showed everybody else respect. I think I

:22:54.:22:57.

didn't get the respect I deserved after the 400-metre hurdles. I'm

:22:58.:23:03.

glad I came through today and put on a good show. I believe this is the

:23:04.:23:06.

beginning. There is so much more that I can provide. Like I said, it

:23:07.:23:13.

is only the beginning. I'm going to put in so much more hard work and

:23:14.:23:17.

show my dominance. Seems strange that anybody could remotely question

:23:18.:23:22.

you went as a world champion and record holder, they wouldn't see you

:23:23.:23:26.

as a worthy winner. Where were you getting that sense from? It is no

:23:27.:23:33.

secret, my finals, a lot of people felt that the results would have

:23:34.:23:38.

been the other way but I have proven everyone wrong today. Like I said,

:23:39.:23:44.

I'm going to prove it over and over again that I deserve to be where IM

:23:45.:23:50.

and what I've achieved -- where I am. And the talk the other day of

:23:51.:23:58.

the conspiracy, the IAAF conspiracy? Did you hear that and what did you

:23:59.:24:04.

think when you did? I think it is very unfair, it is not an overnight

:24:05.:24:08.

success that I've achieved, I've been coming through the rankings

:24:09.:24:14.

over the last few years. I feel that I've worked for where I am today. I

:24:15.:24:19.

guess everyone is going to be angry and people will be upset, the way

:24:20.:24:26.

things work out but this is a competition, we have come out here

:24:27.:24:29.

for one thing, medals. Congratulations on your performance.

:24:30.:24:36.

Thanks, take care. It is easy, as viewers to watch them at the top of

:24:37.:24:40.

their field and think that they go through the motions, winning medals

:24:41.:24:43.

and going home and it is a days work. Just an idea of how much it

:24:44.:24:49.

means, he does not feel he gets the respect he deserves. Interesting

:24:50.:24:53.

statement that he's made but you can understand why because people were

:24:54.:24:58.

thinking, they were favouring Makwala, that there was a conspiracy

:24:59.:25:02.

and athletes read into it, they aren't immune to the information

:25:03.:25:05.

that's out there. You could he how upset he is, that he feels he didn't

:25:06.:25:12.

get his reward. He's a brilliant athlete, he'll be one of the ones

:25:13.:25:15.

we're going to look at in the future to pick up the sport so it's quite

:25:16.:25:19.

devastating to see him there where he's so emotional about the whole

:25:20.:25:26.

thing. I hope he gets over it. That's what everybody wants to see.

:25:27.:25:30.

Not many people have been through emotions like Isaac Makwala and he

:25:31.:25:35.

spoke to Phil Jones after the race. Sixth place in the 200-metre final,

:25:36.:25:40.

I know you said to me yesterday, the 400 is your event. How would you sum

:25:41.:25:45.

up how the last few days have gone for you? By newcomer like I said

:25:46.:25:57.

before, 400 is the one that I put all my money on. 200, sometimes I go

:25:58.:26:08.

for that for speed only. I don't consider it like the 400. I never do

:26:09.:26:14.

the blocks, you know. So I'm happy, I was happy I was in the final.

:26:15.:26:19.

Going into the final, did you think you could win a medal? Yeah, it's

:26:20.:26:30.

one of those things. Difficult racing yesterday during the day.

:26:31.:26:35.

You're going to leave the World Championships with plenty of regret,

:26:36.:26:40.

though? Yeah, leaving with my heart broken, you know, yeah. Thank you

:26:41.:26:51.

for your time over the last few days. I know it's been difficult for

:26:52.:26:57.

you. Thanks very much. He's been through a roller-coaster, Isaac

:26:58.:27:00.

Makwala, but he's still doing his thing and hopefully more to come

:27:01.:27:04.

from him. Yeah, definitely. He came out for the final he was smiling and

:27:05.:27:09.

the crowd were behind him which would have helped him feel good. So

:27:10.:27:13.

much anticipation about the men's triple jump this evening. So many

:27:14.:27:19.

people hoping and expecting to see a world record. Christian Taylor was

:27:20.:27:22.

the man everyone was looking forward to seeing, Toni. Not quite a world

:27:23.:27:27.

record but one heck of a competition. Sorry, I thought we

:27:28.:27:36.

were going to a BT! Taylor, superb. Going into the lead -- going to a

:27:37.:27:42.

VT. Getting that critical final jump ahead of Claye, his team-mate.

:27:43.:27:50.

Superb. His coach, rain either, has a gold medal with Christian Taylor

:27:51.:27:53.

and a bronze medal with Dafne Schippers. If Rainer Ryder was on

:27:54.:28:01.

the medals table he would be above Great Britain, so great work by the

:28:02.:28:05.

American Dutchman! Doing very well. For the first time in two days we

:28:06.:28:11.

can put a head on the board. Please, Toni, give him a cheer, everybody!

:28:12.:28:14.

CHEERING Just to remind you that the crowd is

:28:15.:28:20.

here. We'll only have British medallists here, international

:28:21.:28:24.

gold-medallists and Usain Bolt! Lets finish off with a guy who has been

:28:25.:28:28.

the superstar of the competition so far, not Usain Bolt, not CJ just

:28:29.:28:37.

yet. Toni, you as well. Hero the is everybody's favourite, have you seen

:28:38.:28:42.

him doing his thing? -- the hedgehog. Doing his thing in the

:28:43.:28:46.

water during the steeplechase, holding Usain Bolt, ooh! As Andy

:28:47.:28:54.

Carter put it, ending his lineage, there! -- Andrew Cotter put it. How

:28:55.:29:03.

do you do that? That's incredible! LAUGHTER

:29:04.:29:12.

This is a serious mascot. I wonder what he does in his day job? That

:29:13.:29:18.

needs to be a main event! The ring slide. Hero, you are a hero. Thank

:29:19.:29:26.

you very much, too Toni and Colin and the crowd, once again. Dina

:29:27.:29:29.

Asher-Smith going in the 200

:29:30.:29:30.

Continued live coverage, plus Gabby Logan and Ore Oduba are joined by special guests to look back on the night's action with Michael Johnson providing the analysis.

Three more world champions were crowned tonight, including a changing of the guard in the men's 200m in the absence of the soon-to-be-retired Usain Bolt.
