Welcome to the World Athletics Championships, thank you for joining


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


prohibited him being able to duplicate that 19 seconds he could


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


won the World Championship, his first World Championship and was


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


before Van gets another crack. We can hear from Nethaneel


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


Britain has better facilities than ever before, especially for


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


in these championships, yet another nation stepping onto the medal


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


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


languishing behind the United States, and South Africa behind that


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


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


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


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


has not in any way detracted from the enjoyment of these


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


here and the crowd. CHEERING AND APPLAUSE


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


alongside Ta Lou. These three starting to separate themselves.


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


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


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


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


Asher-Smith, she is incredible. CHEERING


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


she appreciates what she has achieved. Hopefully she can enjoy


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


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


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


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


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


emotional silver-medallist. Congratulations on another medal. I


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


show my dominance. Seems strange that anybody could remotely question


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


for one thing, medals. Congratulations on your performance.


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


CHEERING Just to remind you that the crowd is


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


do you do that? That's incredible! LAUGHTER


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


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


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


Asher-Smith going in the 200


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.
