A few weeks ago registrar Flom announced its inner Pettini

:00:51.:00:56.

including Alistair Brownlee and his brother and then it is cycling got

:00:57.:01:01.

on the act this week. Now the attention turns to athletics, who

:01:02.:01:06.

will be the stars? Well, 40 days until the opening ceremony at the

:01:07.:01:12.

Olympics and it is welcome to the Alexander Stadium in Birmingham and

:01:13.:01:13.

the final day of the Olympic trials. It is hard to believe it is four

:01:14.:01:55.

years since we were here in 2012 but we are back and let me tell you the

:01:56.:01:59.

attention is every bit as big. The athletes signing in and these are

:02:00.:02:00.

very nervous mums. A just the final preparations as they

:02:01.:02:11.

get ready to come out into the stadium. As they come out to book

:02:12.:02:19.

their place on the plane. It was super Saturday four years ago. And

:02:20.:02:26.

we really expect the super Sunday athletics. Paula Radcliffe and Colin

:02:27.:02:35.

Jackson know all about competing, Jessica Ennis not here, Mo Farah not

:02:36.:02:40.

here either but nonetheless a real sense of anticipation. It is

:02:41.:02:43.

heightened even more because it is the Olympic trials as well as the

:02:44.:02:48.

British title. Some of these athletes will have been aiming for

:02:49.:02:51.

this since this appointment may be last time round and somewhere had

:02:52.:02:56.

just come into the focus the last year or less and be aiming to book

:02:57.:03:01.

their place. There will be some good racing. British titles up for grabs.

:03:02.:03:07.

All of us remember winning our very first British title and going back

:03:08.:03:11.

to your club and saying proudly that you are the British champion. And it

:03:12.:03:20.

is the Olympic trials as well. Let's have a look at the timetable, so

:03:21.:03:24.

much to look forward to. Pick out your favourites. This is the third

:03:25.:03:31.

day and will be showing highlights of the first two days. Just pick out

:03:32.:03:33.

your favourites. Building up to a great final last

:03:34.:03:48.

hour with the men's 200 metres finishing it off. What are you

:03:49.:03:54.

looking forward to most, Paula? Like you said some great races but the

:03:55.:03:57.

men's 800 will be exciting. What I like is the likes of Ben Greenwood,

:03:58.:04:03.

17 years old, snatching a place in the final. Against Anthony Whiteman,

:04:04.:04:12.

who has been here, I have lost count, seventh Olympic trials,

:04:13.:04:17.

44-year-old. That will be a great race. Unfortunately Jo Pavey is not

:04:18.:04:26.

here, she has chosen to chase the 10k in Holland. Eilish McColgan has

:04:27.:04:32.

switched distances and then we have Laura Whittle and Steph 12. Let's

:04:33.:04:38.

look at how athletes will get selected from the trials for Rio.

:04:39.:04:56.

In terms of flats, do you think that is reasonable. The important thing

:04:57.:05:08.

is you have clarity, you do not want any confusion. You want to know

:05:09.:05:12.

exactly what you have to do. With some of the events they already know

:05:13.:05:17.

what is at stake. Now we will focus on the women's 100 metres yesterday

:05:18.:05:23.

with Andrew Cotter and Steve Cram. COMMENTATOR: That is the line-up for

:05:24.:05:31.

the women's 100 metres. Dina Asher-Smith concentrating on the 200

:05:32.:05:45.

metres. Henry has been going well. Cleanly away, Asha Phillip out so

:05:46.:05:51.

quickly. Desiree Henry trying to come back. Asha Phillip a long way

:05:52.:05:56.

clear and she takes the victory. Into a slight wind. It was a big win

:05:57.:06:08.

Philip. Asha Phillip out in the lead and then it is a race for second and

:06:09.:06:11.

you are right, Desiree Henry tightening up as a 19-year-old and

:06:12.:06:20.

Nieta not even dipping, saying I have got second. I thought that was

:06:21.:06:29.

a little bit relaxed. Henry again dominating the heats and the

:06:30.:06:33.

semifinal but in the final, she might still go, it is up to the

:06:34.:06:39.

selectors, but the two guaranteed to go to Rio are Asha Phillip and

:06:40.:06:45.

Daryll Nieta. Decent season's best for Philip. She beat Asher-Smith

:06:46.:06:54.

indoors this year and she says it for the big moments. You delivered

:06:55.:07:01.

when it mattered most. Thank you, Rocky start the but I know how to

:07:02.:07:08.

compete at championships, I did not care where I came today, first or

:07:09.:07:13.

second, get on the plane to Rio. This is the one where I'm actually

:07:14.:07:19.

going. I am so happy. I saw your reaction, can you sum it up? I am

:07:20.:07:25.

overwhelmed, I did not expect to be in this position now. A lot of hard

:07:26.:07:31.

work and I am so happy. Are you ahead of schedule? Thies, it has

:07:32.:07:36.

always been there but I'm happy to do it. Both going to Rio. I will

:07:37.:07:44.

start crying. It is our dream, we work so hard through the year. The

:07:45.:07:49.

fact we have done it and got on the plane, I am so happy, she is so

:07:50.:07:56.

young, and the relay team is out of this world right now.

:07:57.:08:01.

Congratulations to you both. STUDIO: Two very excited young ladies and

:08:02.:08:05.

Asha Phillip just pulled out of the first event today, the 200-metre

:08:06.:08:10.

heats and Colin, we have Dina Asher-Smith going in this one and

:08:11.:08:14.

perhaps she is the one we are most excited about. Massive and through

:08:15.:08:22.

last year. She was superb in the major championships, the final in

:08:23.:08:27.

Beijing, phenomenal time. I am very excited about her potential. Good

:08:28.:08:32.

afternoon to Denise Lewis and Steve Cram. COMMENTATOR: Afternoon

:08:33.:08:39.

Jonathan, afternoon everybody. The sun shining, maybe a little rain

:08:40.:08:43.

later on and certainly a stiff breeze down the home straight. Dina

:08:44.:08:55.

Asher-Smith goes here in Lane 5. The qualification is fairly

:08:56.:09:01.

straightforward. The winner of each heat and four fastest losers go

:09:02.:09:05.

through to the final. A shame that Asha Phillip has only just pulled

:09:06.:09:10.

out. She decided not to double up because she went so well in the 100.

:09:11.:09:15.

That leaves it clear almost, three major contenders, Dina Asher-Smith

:09:16.:09:21.

in this one, Desiree Henry in Heat 3 and Jodie Williams in Heat 4. The

:09:22.:09:28.

likes of Bianca Williams, talking over the top of these girls as they

:09:29.:09:32.

are introduced, Bianca Williams perhaps one who might think she can

:09:33.:09:41.

rediscover some form from 2014 - 15. No worries for Dina Asher-Smith I

:09:42.:09:46.

would not thing. Her only 200 was in Stockholm in the wind and rain a

:09:47.:09:51.

week ago. She will be looking first of all just to qualify comfortably.

:09:52.:10:07.

Shannon Hylton shares the same coach as Dina.

:10:08.:10:13.

Made the decision not to run the hundred, alluding to that a couple

:10:14.:10:19.

of minutes ago, this is the only event she wants to contest in Rio.

:10:20.:10:24.

Of course the relay squad, places up for grabs in that one as well for

:10:25.:10:29.

all of the sprinters. Dina Asher-Smith in Lane 5. The winner,,

:10:30.:10:41.

fires ultimately. -- qualifies. Dina Asher-Smith gets a really good

:10:42.:10:45.

start. Hylton in Lane 3 moving through with her but Dina

:10:46.:10:48.

Asher-Smith already showing the class between her, the Gulf in class

:10:49.:10:54.

really between her and the others. Hylton doing well to try to hang on

:10:55.:10:59.

to higher. Enjoying the conditions down the home straight, backing off

:11:00.:11:04.

as she comes through in a fairly swift 22.96. That was effortless.

:11:05.:11:10.

Really good start. I do not know what you think, did knees, but

:11:11.:11:15.

sometimes you are concentrating, yes you can fact off five she give their

:11:16.:11:20.

have the fifth of staff, really good from then and then favour flats in

:11:21.:11:26.

the home straight. -- you can back off will stop does not matter how

:11:27.:11:30.

much experience you have got coming to your booking your place is

:11:31.:11:34.

crucial in these few days. She did not want to mess around. Anxious

:11:35.:11:39.

wait, she has been looking forward to running. And she has made the

:11:40.:11:47.

running look very, very easy indeed. We know what she is like out of the

:11:48.:11:54.

blocks. Very dynamic and quick, always a great Bend runner. She

:11:55.:11:58.

handles the curve superbly and from this moment on it is about relaxing.

:11:59.:12:05.

Feeling the track again. Getting into her stride length. She knows

:12:06.:12:11.

she has done everything she needs to do. I mean obviously you do not need

:12:12.:12:19.

fast times but she will want to win. Henry going in Heat 3. Williams to

:12:20.:12:27.

come. She is our best 200-metre runner at the moment but I think the

:12:28.:12:32.

other two will want to make their spot. Only two of those three can

:12:33.:12:36.

guarantee their spot here. Absolutely and as you mentioned

:12:37.:12:42.

Desiree Henry finishing third in the 100 metres, bitterly disappointed.

:12:43.:12:47.

Looking very good in the heats and didn't quite do enough to get the

:12:48.:12:52.

automatic space so she will have a point to prove. Comfortable win for

:12:53.:13:01.

Dina Asher-Smith, she can go and relax and she will be back later, a

:13:02.:13:05.

lot later, really, for the final at 4:20pm. Under 23 seconds, the wind,

:13:06.:13:18.

keep an eye on that, that will be crucial in terms of Olympic

:13:19.:13:22.

qualifying. Slide following wind. Season's best for Shannon Hylton in

:13:23.:13:30.

second and personal best for F Dobbin. -- Beth. Good crowd in today

:13:31.:13:42.

as you would expect. Decent crowd yesterday. Perfume author Dave on

:13:43.:13:46.

super Sunday. We are hoping the rain will hold off. -- a few more to the

:13:47.:13:59.

on super Sunday. Lots of drama as well, we have talked about places up

:14:00.:14:03.

for grabs obviously but it is being able to cement your team. 11 people

:14:04.:14:10.

yesterday but their flight to Rio. All ages, the interest in athletics,

:14:11.:14:16.

all ages. It is great to see the turnout. Trials have been fiercely

:14:17.:14:19.

contested but it has been said that this is possibly one of our best

:14:20.:14:24.

Olympic trials we have seen in the long time. I think very competitive

:14:25.:14:28.

and by the way, that looks nice. I have not had my lunch yet. The

:14:29.:14:35.

women's 800 later, seven people yesterday with the qualifying mark.

:14:36.:14:37.

Andrew. Onto heat two of the women's 200

:14:38.:14:55.

metres. Interesting to see how Louise Bloor goes.

:14:56.:15:02.

Six runners. Lucy Evans who took the Welsh title this year. Running in

:15:03.:15:11.

the green, red and white of sale Harriers.

:15:12.:15:16.

Amanda Shaw, Wakefield Harriers. A similar sort of time. And inside

:15:17.:15:31.

her, the Trafford athlete... And in March, a stress fracture in her back

:15:32.:15:35.

was diagnosed. Very unfortunate timing. Interesting to see what sort

:15:36.:15:44.

of form she isn't. Kimberly Baptiste inside her... This athlete studying

:15:45.:16:00.

in Oklahoma. Has reached qualifying standard previously in the USA. And

:16:01.:16:04.

in your clock... Inside 24 seconds. Four heats. Only one goes through

:16:05.:16:21.

automatically. Plus the four fastest losers.

:16:22.:16:26.

Very interesting to see what sort of form Louise Bloor is in after her

:16:27.:16:30.

injury. Pipi quite well away. Louise Bloor

:16:31.:16:52.

working strongly down the bend. Pipi alongside. Ten Pack three out in

:16:53.:16:58.

front, Bloor working hard down the straight. Pipi a long way out and it

:16:59.:17:04.

will be Pipi, comfortable winner of this heat. Taking the qualifying

:17:05.:17:13.

spot and the wind had dropped. 23.84, not as quick as she might

:17:14.:17:16.

have liked for that second qualifying spot but she has a place

:17:17.:17:22.

in the final. You might not have seen too much of Pipi, she is based

:17:23.:17:27.

in the United States at the moment, but running very well, Berry

:17:28.:17:31.

consistently. When you are competing there, when you are in the United

:17:32.:17:36.

States, that gives you a lot of raising experience which she showed.

:17:37.:17:40.

Absolutely, she came to these championships full of running.

:17:41.:17:46.

Making a very good 200 metres, putting together a decent race. She

:17:47.:17:50.

got out well. What you are looking for in the bend is they are curbing

:17:51.:17:54.

the turn and she drifted a little, stays sort of centre but could have

:17:55.:18:00.

her but that lane a little tighter. She comes into the home straight,

:18:01.:18:05.

looking for relaxation, looking for a comfortable turnover and as you

:18:06.:18:09.

said, Andrew... Lots of running has been done over in the States. So she

:18:10.:18:15.

is fresh, knows what she has got to do and made her qualification and

:18:16.:18:23.

very easy indeed. A real shame for Amy Allcock. But Pipi coming down

:18:24.:18:32.

the street, looking comfortable. Louise Bloor, missing a little bit

:18:33.:18:35.

of running in those legs after that stress fracture injury. But Pipi, as

:18:36.:18:41.

we mentioned, studying over in Oklahoma. Looking ready good for a

:18:42.:18:47.

challenge in the final. The pace, a little bit down, as you would expect

:18:48.:18:53.

on that of Dina Asher-Smith. Some quick runners to come. Jody

:18:54.:18:58.

Williams, Bianca Williams... Pipi, an easy winner of that. Head of

:18:59.:19:05.

Kimberly Baptiste. The four fastest losers will go through, a personal

:19:06.:19:09.

best for Kimberly Baptiste as we can confirm...

:19:10.:19:26.

The discus... Aiden Francis is out in front. This is round five. On

:19:27.:19:35.

home turf. The best this year, 55.8 five. Let's look at this. Writing

:19:36.:19:44.

hard off the left leg, hitting hard on the heels. Chasing down...

:19:45.:19:49.

Looking closer to the 60-metre line than the 50-metre line, Olympic

:19:50.:19:56.

qualifying is 61 metres, and a season's best for her. That was a

:19:57.:20:00.

few moments ago. In the final round, taking the lead,

:20:01.:20:12.

just shy of 60 metres. Making great ground this year. Qualifying for the

:20:13.:20:18.

pics. That will be enough. The British champion. On the plane to

:20:19.:20:27.

Rio de Janeiro. That has assured her place on Team GB. What a great

:20:28.:20:32.

throw, decent throw, not great, actually, I will take that back.

:20:33.:20:35.

Very high standards this year. Second best ever. Jade Lalli. And

:20:36.:20:43.

below 60 metres. Into a slight headwind. Looks pleased enough.

:20:44.:20:50.

Victory ie three metres for Jade. Celebrations all round.

:20:51.:21:01.

The British champion, six qualifier marks, that is sure is a place in

:21:02.:21:16.

the team for Rio de Janeiro. Aiden Francis, decent enough performance.

:21:17.:21:19.

A good win for Jade. So we move onto heat three in the

:21:20.:21:35.

women's 200 metres. If you were with us some minutes ago, disappointment

:21:36.:21:39.

that Asha Philip will not start, after winning the 100 metres

:21:40.:21:45.

yesterday. Desiree Henry in lane three.

:21:46.:21:56.

She has the distinction of being the oldest in the field but we won't

:21:57.:22:13.

talk about that. And now, the youngest in the field. Chloe

:22:14.:22:23.

Lambert... Third in the Commonwealth youth games a few years back. A lot

:22:24.:22:28.

of Scottish athletes having a good weekend. Joey Duck in lane five,

:22:29.:22:40.

trying to get back to form. And a big opportunity for a Desiree Henry,

:22:41.:22:45.

still just 20 years of age, real talent. So disappointed, Denise was

:22:46.:22:52.

right, ran very well, I was here on Friday night, but ran so good. In

:22:53.:22:57.

the heat... She just seemed to run out of steam a little bit in the

:22:58.:23:01.

final of the 100 metres, finishing third.

:23:02.:23:05.

No Ashlee Nelson. Problem for her in terms of injury. An opportunity to

:23:06.:23:16.

get to the final four Henry and she could cement for a spot in the 200

:23:17.:23:24.

metre team later. Away they go... Not the best start. Sometimes Henry

:23:25.:23:29.

is not the best out of the blocks. Running a very good bend, tried to

:23:30.:23:35.

relax. The youngster going well. Henry with that lovely action...

:23:36.:23:40.

Those are working, and this is what she looks like when she is relaxed.

:23:41.:23:44.

When there is a little bit of pressure, things can go a little

:23:45.:23:50.

awry. 23.15. Easing off, relaxing down the home straight. She looks

:23:51.:23:56.

happy. It is really hard, isn't it, Denise? When an opportunity like she

:23:57.:24:02.

had in the 100 metres seems to slip through your fingers, she could

:24:03.:24:07.

still yet be selected. And you have to gather yourself, come out again,

:24:08.:24:11.

put that this appointment behind you, get back on the bike as it

:24:12.:24:17.

were. The heats are a good way to do that. Absolutely, she knows she is

:24:18.:24:21.

in great shape, a beautiful looking runner, I like Armour over the 200

:24:22.:24:26.

than I do over the 100 because you get to see that lovely technique in

:24:27.:24:31.

full flow but what this proves to you, when you come to these Olympic

:24:32.:24:35.

trials, you cannot underestimate anybody. A lot of youngsters here

:24:36.:24:40.

this weekend trying to take that next step, book their place, get a

:24:41.:24:45.

personal best and I think maybe she switched off, maybe a little bit

:24:46.:24:49.

ruffled white Asha Philip taking out the 100 but this young lady has a

:24:50.:24:53.

great opportunity, she is looking good and she just needs to remain

:24:54.:25:02.

confident. Just one more heat to go. The final at 4:20pm, don't miss it,

:25:03.:25:07.

should be fantastic. Let's catch up with more of the highlights from

:25:08.:25:08.

yesterday. Unfinished business in the men's

:25:09.:25:22.

triple jumper Julian Reed. And Nathan Douglas. Both have the

:25:23.:25:28.

qualifying standard last year, still didn't get selected for the World

:25:29.:25:32.

Championships. Read took second place in the trials yesterday but

:25:33.:25:36.

needs another jump over the Olympic qualifying standard to guarantee

:25:37.:25:40.

selection this year. Douglas won the UK Crown bodies in a the same

:25:41.:25:48.

situation, have time to go beyond 60 metres 85 and give the selectors no

:25:49.:25:53.

options. The women's hammer could offer Britain's best hope for a

:25:54.:26:02.

throwing medal. For Sophie Hitchen, it is job done, heading to a second

:26:03.:26:07.

Olympics and is only 24. Sometimes when you are the favourite it can be

:26:08.:26:11.

difficult, but it's about executing, doing what I needed to do. But it is

:26:12.:26:18.

about going into the next few competitions, hopefully I will be

:26:19.:26:22.

able to pull together. You'd note you are going to Rio de Janeiro,

:26:23.:26:26.

that feeling of representing Great Britain, it must give you a huge

:26:27.:26:30.

thrill. It has come round that fast, it doesn't seem that long ago since

:26:31.:26:35.

2012. It has come round again. It's always nice to see. A few of the

:26:36.:26:43.

results and performances so far in the Championships and this,

:26:44.:26:46.

confirmation of the last heat in the women's 200 metres. Henry, a big

:26:47.:26:52.

winner, quick enough time. A long way clear of Joey Duck.

:26:53.:27:00.

That was heat three. We have seen big wins for Desiree Henry and Dina

:27:01.:27:11.

Asher-Smith. Good conditions at the moment, it is tried, I think that

:27:12.:27:14.

was contrary to the forecast. The breezes picking up and dying away.

:27:15.:27:23.

That is affecting times. We want to keep things legal in terms of the

:27:24.:27:27.

wind and times as we look ahead to the fourth and final heat. A very

:27:28.:27:36.

young line-up. Three 18-year-olds in their but we will be looking out for

:27:37.:27:42.

the Williams... Jody Williams and Bianca Williams, the latter in lane

:27:43.:27:43.

three. On the outside lane, Bailey, from

:27:44.:27:53.

Corby. Ella Barrett, we were talking about

:27:54.:28:04.

the 18-year-olds. That Yorkshire champion over 100 and 200. Another

:28:05.:28:10.

other youngsters, Selina Henderson, from Falkirk. 25 points 30, modest

:28:11.:28:22.

time this season. Jody Williams... She has the qualifying standard. As

:28:23.:28:28.

does Bianca Williams, silver-medallist in the Europeans

:28:29.:28:31.

and Commonwealth Games. Jazz Crawford, 18.

:28:32.:28:38.

24.51 this season. Bianca Williams. Silver-medallist and

:28:39.:28:45.

bronze-medallist here in the Commonwealth Games two years ago.

:28:46.:28:52.

She has the qualifying standard. 23 points 27 this season from Bianca

:28:53.:28:58.

Williams. Only one to go through automatically. You would think about

:28:59.:29:05.

Jody Williams for that. Always a concern, she was protecting her

:29:06.:29:10.

hamstring, pulled out of the world relay. How will she run?

:29:11.:29:16.

The final heat of the women's 200 metres. Jody Williams away nicely,

:29:17.:29:24.

Boyata Williams on the extreme outside, pushing hard. Jody Williams

:29:25.:29:29.

out in front. One to go through only. Automatically, Jody Williams

:29:30.:29:32.

by a couple of metres from Bianca Williams. Jody Williams looking

:29:33.:29:37.

around, looking easy, comfortable, she will take the victory, the

:29:38.:29:43.

automatic place. 22 points 99. The wind dropping a little bit, legal

:29:44.:29:48.

time. Staring to the camera, looking good. Bianca Williams, I suspect,

:29:49.:29:54.

her time will be good, four fastest loser is to go through. She will

:29:55.:29:59.

certainly go through without, Jody Williams, good to see such a good,

:30:00.:30:03.

young talent, problem with injuries but looking constable.

:30:04.:30:07.

She looked well within herself but she will have looked at the draw

:30:08.:30:14.

this morning knowing that comfortable codification, she has

:30:15.:30:17.

been training well. She indicated she has had some problems this

:30:18.:30:21.

season but finding her form and looking to replicate the magical

:30:22.:30:27.

season she had in 2014. Always so important to make sure you have a

:30:28.:30:33.

great bend and Jody does just that. You would expect Bianca Williams in

:30:34.:30:37.

Lane 3 to start to come through that both of them looking nice and easy.

:30:38.:30:43.

Jodie looking like she might do business in the final. Such a talent

:30:44.:30:49.

as a junior, then as you mentioned coming through and that amazing year

:30:50.:30:56.

but for those injuries, she is the purest 200-metre runner Britain has

:30:57.:31:00.

produced in the last few years. She has great attributes for 200, great

:31:01.:31:07.

speed endurance. As a junior we were looking for her to come through will

:31:08.:31:11.

stop as so many of these athletes are tested with injury it is how you

:31:12.:31:15.

deal with that and how you put together your race plan. To allow

:31:16.:31:21.

you to be in the best possible shape you can being at these trials and

:31:22.:31:33.

beyond. Bianca Williams will be through with that one you would

:31:34.:31:41.

think. STUDIO: Very confident looking Jodie Williams. The next

:31:42.:31:48.

action on the track will be the 400 metre hurdles with a little oil, and

:31:49.:31:58.

now we will take -- a league Eilidh Doyle. We will talk about drugs.

:31:59.:32:06.

Let's start with Russia, the IAAF upholding the ban with a few

:32:07.:32:12.

exceptions. Were you first of all surprised at Mark no, not really. I

:32:13.:32:22.

think once we saw the programme, and then the feedback from Russia.

:32:23.:32:29.

Russia are refusing to acknowledge there was a problem. I do not think

:32:30.:32:35.

there was a choice. I think they had to be strong. And not allow Russia

:32:36.:32:40.

to compete until the changes come in and that will take a couple of

:32:41.:32:45.

years. The bizarre thing Steve almost seem to be that Russia did

:32:46.:32:49.

not take this seriously. Bell I agree. They have obviously been

:32:50.:32:55.

sidestepped in terms of their own attitude towards this. There is lots

:32:56.:33:04.

of little things. I think even on the IAAF side we are talking about

:33:05.:33:09.

this discussion with the IOC about allowing proven innocent athletes to

:33:10.:33:16.

compete either under a neutral flag or even has Russia so it is not

:33:17.:33:21.

really sorted out. Even that process when the IAAF suspended Russia some

:33:22.:33:26.

months back it might have been helpful if they had said to the

:33:27.:33:31.

athlete, you might want to start thinking about getting out of the

:33:32.:33:33.

system because we don't think Russia will take this seriously. Russian

:33:34.:33:36.

athletes have been caught in between. Perhaps not being quite

:33:37.:33:48.

aware of how they, if they are innocent, there must be some clean

:33:49.:33:50.

athlete, we presume. It looks difficult for them to get to Rio

:33:51.:33:57.

now. I think Russia are where they deserve to be. What I good evening

:33:58.:34:00.

there has been a change, there was an interesting intervention from the

:34:01.:34:10.

commission president and Becky Scott from Wada, Russia thought they would

:34:11.:34:19.

be let back in again, but now it seems things are out in the open and

:34:20.:34:22.

decisions are being made. I think what we are seeing is a ground swell

:34:23.:34:30.

of the athletes themselves standing up and saying it is our sport and we

:34:31.:34:35.

need to stop the politics. Get the athletes point of view across. We

:34:36.:34:43.

want these governing bodies, to do their principal job which is

:34:44.:34:46.

protecting clean athletes and ensuring they can compete on a level

:34:47.:34:50.

playing field. And the crowds watching can believe what they are

:34:51.:34:55.

watching. The ISC talked about Kenya and their noncompliance on and they

:34:56.:34:59.

have to go through a process if they want to be selected for Rio. Yes,

:35:00.:35:05.

that's a little easier for the Kenyan athletes because their doping

:35:06.:35:09.

system has been under the auspices of the IAAF for a while because of

:35:10.:35:13.

the issues around doing effective testing in Kenya and that has been

:35:14.:35:17.

recognised for a while. There is a fair few athletes will be able to

:35:18.:35:21.

meet that much better than perhaps some of the Russian athletes. It is

:35:22.:35:26.

an issue for Kenya but I do not think we will see some of the bigger

:35:27.:35:31.

names we would expect to be in Rio as part of the Kenyan team not being

:35:32.:35:34.

allowed to compete because they have been tested regularly. They are on

:35:35.:35:43.

the circuit regularly competing. And undergoing fairly brittle and

:35:44.:35:47.

testing, the likes of Kiprop and Rudisha. So we are in a really

:35:48.:35:58.

interesting situation. Bit like post-Brexit... Don't mention it.

:35:59.:36:04.

Everybody looking at the middle of a changing period. The Olympics coming

:36:05.:36:09.

along in the middle of that. Some big decisions having to be taken

:36:10.:36:12.

quite quickly and we have to be careful about that. We cannot allow

:36:13.:36:18.

the Olympics to interfere in really looking at what the issues are in

:36:19.:36:23.

country after country where the labs are not meeting the criteria. That

:36:24.:36:27.

is partly the fault of Wada as well, going back to check labs, they will

:36:28.:36:35.

say perhaps they need more funding. But if there are lots of countries

:36:36.:36:39.

out there including Kenya, Mexico, a whole bunch of them not complying.

:36:40.:36:44.

Even the Rio lab three days ago was declared noncompliance. They will

:36:45.:36:50.

have to fly them back to Switzerland to do the testing for the Olympics.

:36:51.:36:57.

That brings us onto Sochi, another ongoing investigation, allegations

:36:58.:37:06.

that they tampered with specimens in the Olympic testing lab. If those

:37:07.:37:11.

are proven to be true then this supersedes anything we have been

:37:12.:37:17.

talking about. Is it an entire Russia ban? Definitely, that is what

:37:18.:37:20.

has woken up the IOC athletes commission to put the reports

:37:21.:37:25.

forward because suddenly the saw these other sports. Looking back at

:37:26.:37:31.

November when the first McLaren Dick Pound report came out the other

:37:32.:37:36.

sports should have looked at this, it was never just athletics. Trying

:37:37.:37:42.

to do something before Rio it is too late but I do not understand why it

:37:43.:37:46.

is taking so long, it should have been done by now. Those people

:37:47.:37:50.

should never be involved in sport again because that is tampering with

:37:51.:37:53.

basically everything we can believe in. Another recent thing in the news

:37:54.:38:03.

was the barber 1500 metre world record-holder, EPO steroids found in

:38:04.:38:05.

his hotel. -- terrorist for all of the Russia ban and things

:38:06.:38:16.

are changing, how are people going to view Rio. Greg Rutherford in the

:38:17.:38:26.

long jump. How are people going to respond. It is important we do not

:38:27.:38:36.

get sidetracked by Rio, the battle to find the coaches and managers and

:38:37.:38:41.

athletes must go on. We cannot back off. If Dibaba's coach is found to

:38:42.:38:53.

be, there has been a long term invitation. That needs to be

:38:54.:39:00.

publicised. An ongoing investigation into Jama Aden. The public need to

:39:01.:39:05.

understand that all sport hopefully should be trying their best to root

:39:06.:39:10.

out not just the athletes, they make the headlines but it is people

:39:11.:39:14.

behind-the-scenes, the same way we are accusing the Russian Federation

:39:15.:39:19.

and banning them, there is instant full out on the athletes, we should

:39:20.:39:22.

be looking at coaching groups. If there is a culture we think has been

:39:23.:39:26.

cheating, that group somehow has to be following the same route as the

:39:27.:39:34.

Russian athletes. It can be and are -- an analogy if you like. If you're

:39:35.:39:38.

hanging round had to where the coach has syringes, whether they claim

:39:39.:39:43.

they are there is not. No athlete wants to be seen as King would hang

:39:44.:39:49.

around that scenario, would you? I think there is a lot happening but

:39:50.:39:53.

we also have to make sure we are still chasing those people to get

:39:54.:39:57.

rid of them. On final thought before we move on to Jess Ennis and

:39:58.:40:04.

Germany. Testing samples again seems to be a fantastic thing, eight years

:40:05.:40:08.

down the road but now we have introduced the fact that the Olympic

:40:09.:40:17.

high jump champion from 2012 had a negative B sample. It is not chaos,

:40:18.:40:32.

we had it with Bernard Lagatla, it is there to be a second chance to

:40:33.:40:46.

check things. We will leave it there, some better news, Jess Ennis

:40:47.:40:54.

in Germany. -- Bernard Lagat. We can take a look at day one and the first

:40:55.:41:00.

two events of the two and at the moment she is well ahead of the

:41:01.:41:05.

total she got in Beijing to take the gold-medal. 84 points ahead and in

:41:06.:41:11.

particular look at the long jump, 6.63 is a personal best. One person

:41:12.:41:17.

who knows all about multi-events is the Olympic champion from Australia,

:41:18.:41:23.

Denise Lewis. This is a pretty fantastic performance from someone

:41:24.:41:28.

who we do not know if she was fit. The question for Jess is selecting

:41:29.:41:32.

the competition. She has had her injury problems but almost

:41:33.:41:38.

inevitably athletes do not make the right decisions. The performance she

:41:39.:41:46.

has put together so far is testament to the decisions she has to make. In

:41:47.:41:57.

terms of what you have seen, do you start hanging the gold-medal around

:41:58.:42:07.

her neck? I am very confident, the most aggressive was the highlight.

:42:08.:42:12.

The long jump has been so temperamental for her over the last

:42:13.:42:17.

few years. After the great things we have seen from her, 6.63 is

:42:18.:42:26.

outstanding. I do think hanging a medal around her neck, that is of

:42:27.:42:31.

its end. But she is definitely favourite. One athlete who had a

:42:32.:42:38.

disappointing start was Katarina Johnson-Thompson, where is she at

:42:39.:42:42.

the moment? Again athletes get injured, it throws them into

:42:43.:42:47.

disarray. I think the greatest battle for her now is where she is

:42:48.:42:52.

mentally. She still has to believe she can go out there and give Jess a

:42:53.:42:57.

real good run for her money and let's not just say there are other

:42:58.:43:07.

athletes out there. The wife of Ashton eaten is also world leader

:43:08.:43:12.

perhaps not so after this weekend, but she has put in a good

:43:13.:43:21.

performance this year. We know the potential Kat has. Great speed

:43:22.:43:26.

injuries but she needs to put it together. And if she goes to the

:43:27.:43:32.

start line in Rio healthy she will be dangerous. When we get that 800

:43:33.:43:38.

metre result from Germany we will let you know. Next on track is a

:43:39.:43:43.

Eilidh Doyle. This year she has really stepped up to the point where

:43:44.:43:51.

maybe we think she could win a medal in radio. COMMENTATOR: I am sure she

:43:52.:43:59.

has the potential to do that. She started the Diamond League season

:44:00.:44:08.

with a bang. It looked like a soft entry here. The American trials next

:44:09.:44:14.

week will give us an idea of what she needs to get into the final. In

:44:15.:44:19.

the final of this one out with Andrew Coltart. COMMENTATOR: Since

:44:20.:44:24.

the injury to Perri Shakes-Drayton, we will see her later on, this event

:44:25.:44:28.

has been demoted in British terms by this one-woman, Eilidh Doyle,

:44:29.:44:35.

formerly Eilidh Child. She lines up in lane six.

:44:36.:44:43.

Lookout for Shauna Richards and Jessica Turner has been running

:44:44.:44:52.

well. She goes in lane four. Meghan Beesley is an absentee, she is out

:44:53.:44:59.

with an Achilles problem. She is hoping for selection in the European

:45:00.:45:02.

Championships and see how she goes from there. Abigayle Fitzpatrick,

:45:03.:45:10.

under 23 champion. Definite close, the youngest in the line-up, 20

:45:11.:45:15.

years old, personal-best 58 point 74.

:45:16.:45:21.

No such worries on that front for Eilidh Doyle, defending champion,

:45:22.:45:28.

world-class, European champion. Silver at the Commonwealth Games.

:45:29.:45:35.

And Philip below, in lane five. Has got her personal best down to 58.0

:45:36.:45:47.

three. Jessica Turner. 57 seconds flat in Poland at the beginning of

:45:48.:45:51.

the month. Still just 20. Shauna Richards, also 20, world junior at

:45:52.:46:00.

silver-medallist two years ago, 56.05 in the European Under 23

:46:01.:46:02.

Championships and Estonia this time last year, needs to try and find

:46:03.:46:08.

that form again. There will be big support for Ese Okoro, Birchfield

:46:09.:46:12.

Harrier, two years ago, there were five siblings competing at these

:46:13.:46:17.

championships, an athletic family. Hayley Mclean from Chelmsford,

:46:18.:46:18.

former European junior championship. Shauna Richards... Mentioned, the

:46:19.:46:33.

world junior silver-medallist, setting a British junior record.

:46:34.:46:39.

Finding that sort of form, the qualifying standard is 56.20. Hasn't

:46:40.:46:48.

managed to reach 57 seconds the season. Eilidh Doyle... Dominant in

:46:49.:46:53.

the British 400-metre hurdling. Adam on interrupted winter training.

:46:54.:47:05.

She is sometimes slow to start the season but she says this year has

:47:06.:47:06.

been just about her best. The final of the women's 400 metres

:47:07.:47:13.

hurdles. Most eyes looking to Eilidh Doyle

:47:14.:47:33.

and how she paces this race. Moving up on Bethany Close, alongside her

:47:34.:47:39.

now. Looking strong and comfortable. Eilidh Doyle already taking huge

:47:40.:47:45.

chunks out of the rest of the field. Richard is running pretty well in

:47:46.:47:48.

lane three. Three from the right. What time can she manage? Eilidh

:47:49.:47:54.

Doyle controlling the race, keeping the stride even, her stride pattern

:47:55.:47:58.

is consistent, look at the lead, this is a gulf in class for her and

:47:59.:48:02.

the rest of the field. Without Meghan Beesley year. Temp act one, a

:48:03.:48:09.

class apart. Richard is... And Jessica Turner doing battle for

:48:10.:48:12.

second and third, Turner just in front. Eilidh Doyle, ten metres more

:48:13.:48:17.

than that clear of the rest of the field, it is all about her victory

:48:18.:48:26.

and the time she runs. 54.93, Jessica Turner taking second. She

:48:27.:48:32.

barely looks out of breath, Eilidh Doyle. My goodness! What a dominant

:48:33.:48:38.

performance, we expected it, the UK champion again. No one really can

:48:39.:48:41.

touch her in 400-metre hurdling terms. In Britain at the moment. A

:48:42.:48:48.

familiar smile, we have seen so many times as she gathers medals in

:48:49.:48:52.

European and Commonwealth terms and here, she takes the British title

:48:53.:48:56.

very comfortably. It is one thing being the favourite but you still

:48:57.:49:00.

have to go out and deliver and things can happen in hurdles, even

:49:01.:49:05.

in the 400 metres and that was a performance race. It was really good

:49:06.:49:13.

to see. You know, the way she started was spot on, she has had

:49:14.:49:18.

flawless preparation which allows her to come out very well at the

:49:19.:49:21.

beginning of the year, in the diamond league in Joe Hart, taking

:49:22.:49:25.

their first race, that is important for any of these world-class

:49:26.:49:34.

athletes. Settling into the season. -- Doha. Get that with an early. It

:49:35.:49:38.

is difficult sometimes to push yourself when you are so dominant

:49:39.:49:45.

but good rhythm, good style, and for her, she will really enjoy the fact

:49:46.:49:48.

that she is going to go to Rio now, this guarantees her spot and she can

:49:49.:49:53.

focus on getting through to the final and attacking those metal

:49:54.:49:57.

places. Interesting what you are saying, she can only push yourself,

:49:58.:50:02.

that is why it is a shame, it would be nice to see Meghan Beesley coming

:50:03.:50:05.

back and running, she is one person who can get close to Eilidh Doyle.

:50:06.:50:12.

Ahead on does not do it justice, the margin of victory... She is the

:50:13.:50:18.

champion, a bit of a store, under 55 seconds, the UK champion again and

:50:19.:50:22.

she talks now to fill. Congratulations on that. A sense of

:50:23.:50:28.

relief, you know you are a class apart from this field but you needed

:50:29.:50:33.

to get the job done? I never take anything for granted, I have to go

:50:34.:50:36.

out and anything can happen in hurdles, that was the main focus. I

:50:37.:50:40.

needed to show tonight, get the qualifying. I can get the plane to

:50:41.:50:46.

Rio. We know you are European champion and you have been fifth and

:50:47.:50:50.

sixth... The way you are running this year I think people are

:50:51.:50:54.

suggesting you might get a medal at the Olympics. How do you feel things

:50:55.:50:58.

are going? I am confident, the hurdles is open this year, got to

:50:59.:51:03.

keep plugging away and working hard. I do not give away medals easily but

:51:04.:51:08.

I am going to try and fight for one. How much is there a sense of

:51:09.:51:12.

celebration in making the team and how much is ticking a that is it,

:51:13.:51:17.

everyone talks about the Olympics but until you have cemented the

:51:18.:51:21.

selection you cannot focus too much honoured, I can go away now know I

:51:22.:51:26.

will be there. Listen, I know you have run so well this season but in

:51:27.:51:30.

a race like today, do you ever wish you could be pushed more on the

:51:31.:51:35.

British stage? When you do hurdles, it's all about the stride pattern,

:51:36.:51:39.

sometimes it becomes irrelevant, it's all about your own performance,

:51:40.:51:43.

I don't take anything for granted, great race today. Great race,

:51:44.:51:47.

congratulations on booking your place for real.

:51:48.:51:52.

It's interesting talking about the prospects, as Steve was alluded to,

:51:53.:51:57.

the US trials, five Americans have run quicker than Eilidh Doyle. Look

:51:58.:52:03.

at the margin of victory for her. Jessica Turner in second place and a

:52:04.:52:10.

personal best for it Bethany Close. Well done to Eilidh Doyle. Denise

:52:11.:52:16.

Lewis has found a chair, but Paula, you are doing well at keeping your

:52:17.:52:20.

cheer here! Good performance from Eilidh Doyle. It is easy to go out

:52:21.:52:26.

and focus on your own race in the hurdles but it's the mental side,

:52:27.:52:29.

getting yourself up for race you know you are going to win?

:52:30.:52:34.

Absolutely and she does it so well, so much championship experience, at

:52:35.:52:38.

these of trials and she has had to get used of taking those races,

:52:39.:52:43.

almost like a time trial, doing the job and getting it done. I don't

:52:44.:52:48.

know whether I would agree with... Sometimes you need those races, it's

:52:49.:52:52.

testing your stride pattern and your ability to keep a cool head in

:52:53.:52:57.

really quick races and... It varies for some athletes quite

:52:58.:53:01.

dramatically. Nice to see her here, Pollock, she is the sort of athlete

:53:02.:53:04.

who might have woken up in the middle of the week and said my

:53:05.:53:09.

hamstring is sore, I do not fancy it. Absolutely and it's great to see

:53:10.:53:13.

her here, the crowd appreciate it and it's great to see her coming out

:53:14.:53:18.

and running well. A beard will inspire more kids to go down to the

:53:19.:53:28.

local track and try the 400 metres. The men's 400-metre hurdles is out

:53:29.:53:34.

on the track behind us. Denise, contrasting to the women's race,

:53:35.:53:39.

this is as hard as you like. It is hard and it is wide open. All the

:53:40.:53:44.

guys running here, welcome back to Rhys Williams, running again. Jack

:53:45.:53:49.

Green has had his issues but he is also in the line-up and you cannot

:53:50.:53:55.

call it, if I am honest. It will be a testament to who wants it the

:53:56.:54:02.

most. Just seeing Eilidh Doyle still carrying on her celebrations, we

:54:03.:54:05.

will go back to get ready and changed and then get ready for the

:54:06.:54:12.

presentation. There is Jack Green. Unfortunately, Dai Greene did not

:54:13.:54:17.

make the final... Paul. He knew he was up against it. Had a long way to

:54:18.:54:23.

come back. He gave it his best shot but he wasn't able to be there in

:54:24.:54:27.

the final today. But I think you can walk away knowing he gave it his

:54:28.:54:31.

best. The unenviable task of trying to call the blanket finish, with me,

:54:32.:54:35.

it's Steve Crown! Let's go for the duvet. I will try

:54:36.:54:45.

and set this out. Anybody... Certainly any one or two out of four

:54:46.:54:50.

men are guaranteed a place. Let's begin with Flannery. The

:54:51.:55:09.

defending champion, qualification marks from last year. Mind it can go

:55:10.:55:15.

all the way back to the 1st of May 2015, he has two qualification marks

:55:16.:55:20.

so a top two for him, sorted. He goes to Rio. Jacob Hall, the

:55:21.:55:26.

youngest, 21, new personal best. In qualifying for the final could he

:55:27.:55:30.

sprang a surprise? You would have to drop another big personal best. Rhys

:55:31.:55:37.

Williams. He has done that time once this year. Needs to finish in the

:55:38.:55:44.

top two and run 49 point for quicker. That would guarantee his

:55:45.:55:50.

spot. Similarly, Tom Burton. Last year, ran 49.3 six. He will need to

:55:51.:56:00.

repeat that here today. A bit more difficult for Sebastian Rodger.

:56:01.:56:02.

Perhaps the most consistent this year. Hasn't been able to drop a

:56:03.:56:08.

time and get that qualification mark. Jack Green... He has done.

:56:09.:56:16.

Having Jack Green probably in the best position, if he can produce the

:56:17.:56:18.

sort of form he has shown already. Needs to finish in the top two. The

:56:19.:56:29.

city of Sheffield club. The former world champion, Jack Calton. His

:56:30.:56:35.

team-mate from the same club, Rick Yates. As often performed so well.

:56:36.:56:46.

In the rounds to qualify, Jack Green... Perfectly fine. Tom Burton

:56:47.:56:54.

looked pretty good. And Rhys Williams... Niall Flannery

:56:55.:57:00.

struggling a little bit. That is why he finds himself out in lane eight.

:57:01.:57:05.

Green is in three. Tom Burton in five.

:57:06.:57:31.

Safely away. Flannery probably has to get out there pretty hard. In the

:57:32.:57:37.

400-metre hurdles you cannot change much in terms of your rhythm and

:57:38.:57:42.

stride pattern. It's going to be about the home straight. Jack Green

:57:43.:57:46.

going well already, Tom Burton in the middle. The green vest of

:57:47.:57:52.

Tamworth. Flannery rising first. Hardly anything to choose between

:57:53.:57:56.

them, Sebastian Rodger in this, Jack Ring struggling, losing a couple of

:57:57.:58:00.

metres. Rhys Williams, Burton, Sebastian Rodger, Flannery...

:58:01.:58:05.

Sebastian Rodger leading. Rhys Williams trying to get in, here

:58:06.:58:11.

comes Jack Green. Jack Green trying to get there but Sebastian Rodger

:58:12.:58:17.

leading. Still holding a metre. Sebastian Rodger Windsor from Jack

:58:18.:58:25.

Green, 49.40 six. What a shame. Sebastian Rodger had been the most

:58:26.:58:31.

consistent this year. Jack Green confirming his place in real but

:58:32.:58:36.

600th of a second shy of an Olympic qualifying mark. Sometimes the

:58:37.:58:41.

consistency of performing reasonably well... Sometimes you cannot just

:58:42.:58:47.

drop a time, for him, it's a bit easy down that back straight but he

:58:48.:58:52.

attacked it. Nothing to choose between the first 200 metres, ran

:58:53.:58:57.

really well through the top bend. Had that lead, under pressure, stood

:58:58.:59:02.

up well. I was a little bit nervous for him coming into the final

:59:03.:59:06.

barrier. Attacking it so aggressively but as you said, that

:59:07.:59:12.

consistency that you have under your belt is and always great in these

:59:13.:59:15.

circumstances. When the pressure is on, you know you have the confidence

:59:16.:59:20.

to clear the final barrier is, put yourself in a good position to go

:59:21.:59:29.

driving into the line. Sebastian Rodger had been quite nervous of

:59:30.:59:33.

some people, he opens his stride, into the crown of the bend, pushing

:59:34.:59:39.

well, here we go, driving. I am strong and focused, I will keep my

:59:40.:59:43.

rhythm. I know there is pressure, I am going to be steaming, look how he

:59:44.:59:52.

works hard into that tape. Gutted that he just missed the qualifying.

:59:53.:59:57.

But the thing is, now he has come within the top two he has until to

:59:58.:00:02.

lie the 11th to run the mark and the fact he is so close, he will have to

:00:03.:00:06.

fight some races, the European Championships are an option, not too

:00:07.:00:11.

many meetings around, but can he run the time twice to guarantee

:00:12.:00:15.

selection or will he get picked anyway, the fact he has run here

:00:16.:00:20.

today. He needs to get at least one qualifying mark. Came close, but the

:00:21.:00:25.

main thing for him, he has given himself an option and a chance and

:00:26.:00:30.

Jack Green, he can be very happy, the fact he has qualified.

:00:31.:00:39.

I think we can tidy up the result before talking to the two of them.

:00:40.:00:46.

Winning time for Sebastian Rogers, just out five hundredths of a

:00:47.:00:59.

second, Jack Green 49 point 49. The two guys with Phil. We can talk

:01:00.:01:07.

about permutations now. Jack has secured his place and it is a

:01:08.:01:10.

question of chasing times or convincing the selectors you should

:01:11.:01:14.

go regardless, you are so close today. It is out of our control

:01:15.:01:18.

really, we did not want to go down to this but it has done, one of

:01:19.:01:23.

those things. Willie Targett the Europeans or what will be the game

:01:24.:01:27.

plan being to get the times once and nudge selectors? That is the only

:01:28.:01:32.

way I can go, I will go to the Europeans and see what side can do

:01:33.:01:36.

there. I will have to see to be honest. Tremendous performance as

:01:37.:01:40.

congressional is taking the British title. I'm over the moon to be.

:01:41.:01:50.

People are so supportive. Everything has come together so I'm very happy.

:01:51.:01:55.

Wild Jack making the team, you are there in 2012 so unfinished

:01:56.:02:02.

business? Yes I've barely run in the last four years so today was a job,

:02:03.:02:06.

I would like to wear but I really don't care to be honest, I'm going

:02:07.:02:09.

to Rio and about what today was about. It is nice to be going. Age

:02:10.:02:15.

were discovered by, we wish you well. -- tremendous comeback. Jo

:02:16.:02:30.

Blair chasing down the lead. She has hit that hard. A big efforts from Jo

:02:31.:02:39.

Blair, her lifetime best is 54 91. It looks to be beyond that. Slightly

:02:40.:02:46.

short of the arm, knows about that flight well though. She has hit that

:02:47.:02:52.

very hard indeed and has gotten a lot out of it. 57 metres, 44

:02:53.:03:01.

centimetres, a lifetime best and takes the lead. A few months ago,

:03:02.:03:08.

Goldie Sayers finds herself in second place. Looking to chase the

:03:09.:03:16.

lead of 57 metres 44, Jo Blair and that when challenger. Best so far

:03:17.:03:28.

54.70 three. She has an Olympic qualification place from last year

:03:29.:03:30.

but she would need one to improved form. That won't do that, 54.98.

:03:31.:03:40.

Lands heavily, no separation there, all comes flooding through together.

:03:41.:03:45.

Nothing on it, no power going through the javelin. Slight

:03:46.:03:50.

improvement but still in second place for Goldie Sayers. Long jump

:03:51.:03:59.

also underway. No Greg Roman Rutherford. Hit the board by the

:04:00.:04:06.

sounds of it, looks to be over seven metres. Early stages, nothing to

:04:07.:04:17.

worry about with Greg Roman food. We hear he is just playing its careful

:04:18.:04:30.

ahead of Rio. -- Greg Rutherford. A best this year of 61 for Jegede, 30

:04:31.:04:36.

years of age now. That takes the lead, up to his season 's best.

:04:37.:04:44.

Looking at the other side of the stadium they are readying themselves

:04:45.:04:48.

for the men's 200. Three heats in this event. A shame we will not see

:04:49.:04:53.

at Mitchell Blake after his overnight withdrawal. This is the

:04:54.:05:01.

line-up for the first heat and add generally is in there. -- add

:05:02.:05:11.

generally. He has recently run and two for Chris Clarke and Tommy

:05:12.:05:13.

Ramdhan has been running quickly as well. -- Adam Gemili. Kyle Ennis

:05:14.:05:26.

goes on the outside, Newcastle best 20.0 four. Inside him the Liverpool

:05:27.:05:39.

Harrier James Williams. The qualifying standard for this is

:05:40.:05:43.

25.0. Chris Clarke is capable of that's, 20.22, his personal best.

:05:44.:05:54.

Sam Watts of Woodford Green Essex, a semifinalist at the NCAA, studying

:05:55.:06:05.

over in Texas. Permanently with a smile on his face. The European

:06:06.:06:10.

champion, has never won a senior UK title and there is Tommy Ramdhan,

:06:11.:06:15.

the 19-year-old who won the UK junior title in Sweden last summer.

:06:16.:06:28.

Peter Shand, on home soil. New personal best for him this season

:06:29.:06:40.

outside 21 seconds. On the inside. The first two go through

:06:41.:06:43.

automatically and the two fastest losers over the three heats. Sam

:06:44.:06:49.

Watts is on a quick time as well, his personal best is 20.65. They

:06:50.:06:59.

Woodford Green athlete. Adam Gemili in four there. The first of three

:07:00.:07:05.

heats in the men's 200 metres. Clearly a way and Adam Gemili making

:07:06.:07:20.

huge ground, Sam Watts behind it. Adam Gemili in a good position at

:07:21.:07:24.

the moment. Tommy Ramdhan with the ground to make up, Chris Clarke

:07:25.:07:28.

moving nicely. Gemili out in France, had a glance to the right and left,

:07:29.:07:34.

nobody there. A long way clear, Chris Clarke just takes a second

:07:35.:07:41.

place, 26.0. The wind helping a fraction for Adam Gemili. Nice to

:07:42.:07:46.

see him running quickly where things went wrong just over a year ago and

:07:47.:07:52.

ended soaked going of -- ended his hopes of going to the World

:07:53.:07:54.

Championship at he is through to the final. It is nice to see him back

:07:55.:07:59.

and moving so well, yes we know it is only a qualifying round but he is

:08:00.:08:04.

a really good competence printer now Adam. That smile as you say, people

:08:05.:08:12.

love him, enjoyed seeing him perform because when he is at his best very

:08:13.:08:16.

competitive against all the top sprinters in the world. Here is that

:08:17.:08:25.

European champion, Adam managed to do that and Heery is right in the

:08:26.:08:29.

centre of the picture running a very common to all cagey turn, no

:08:30.:08:34.

pressure on him, puts his foot down as he comes off the bench, users

:08:35.:08:40.

away smoothly. Of course stopped the clock around that 20 point six mark.

:08:41.:08:48.

A natural sprinter, not hugely massively, just faster. You wonder

:08:49.:08:55.

how quickly he may have gone last year but the hamstring injury. Again

:08:56.:09:01.

looking easy and able to have those glances around. A strong contender

:09:02.:09:06.

he will be despite the fact there are very quick runners to come. This

:09:07.:09:14.

is a pretty loaded event. This will be one of the hot races here this

:09:15.:09:19.

weekend. Don't worry, these guys are full of action and are looking to

:09:20.:09:24.

run fast and of course obviously have the best seat on the plane.

:09:25.:09:33.

Looking easy, comfortably through. The final is at 445, confirmation of

:09:34.:09:40.

that result, Gemili and Chris Clarke go through automatically but Gemili

:09:41.:09:51.

a long way clear of his rivals. Adam Gemili through so today's needs to

:09:52.:09:55.

go away and get worn down, a bit of a massage, it is only 200 metres but

:09:56.:09:59.

at that speed it takes a bit out of you. Not only the physical aspect

:10:00.:10:06.

but mentally, getting up for the 200, so much at stake and it is so

:10:07.:10:09.

competitive as some of these races are this weekend. Adam has a point

:10:10.:10:14.

to prove to himself, has not had the best start to the season, still

:10:15.:10:20.

recovering from that awful hamstring injury so he needs sharpness and

:10:21.:10:23.

needs to find that turnover of speed again. Let's look at the race, he

:10:24.:10:28.

got out well, it is difficult to tell it what is essentially a

:10:29.:10:34.

semifinal he is so far ahead of everybody else. He is but when you

:10:35.:10:42.

have been racing lightly it is important to try and repeat what you

:10:43.:10:45.

have been doing in training and what he remember and what you feel. It

:10:46.:10:50.

ought to be the great execution of a race and that was not too far off

:10:51.:10:53.

but as you said nice and easy and comfortable. He very much those he

:10:54.:10:59.

has to perform in the final, some events are strong, despite the fact

:11:00.:11:06.

Blake is not running and James Ellington, he ran in the 100

:11:07.:11:09.

yesterday, we will show it surely so don't miss it, he still needs to

:11:10.:11:15.

produce. Still needs to produce a performance and not only to try and

:11:16.:11:19.

book his place for Rio but also to prove to himself that he is going in

:11:20.:11:25.

the right direction. What I like about Adam, for all of the difficult

:11:26.:11:29.

times he has had, the trauma last year, the smile on his face, it is

:11:30.:11:34.

like he is a novice at Fleet at his first Championships. He has come

:11:35.:11:39.

from football so in terms of trading days, he probably is a novice

:11:40.:11:44.

compared to someone like Doyle and others. He is still learning and

:11:45.:11:48.

still feeling his way and will probably be wondering why people

:11:49.:11:54.

adore him so much, it is that smile and we know the potential that is

:11:55.:12:00.

there. No Blake as I mentioned, 95 he has done this year, that is a big

:12:01.:12:07.

disappointments but in terms of the selection and for the selectors, it

:12:08.:12:10.

gives the maroon problem doesn't think was like it does. The whole

:12:11.:12:18.

point is for people to show up and beds to heads of some important and

:12:19.:12:22.

when you have your two fastest runners not showing up, it gives

:12:23.:12:28.

them a real dilemma because they have to prove fitness, they have the

:12:29.:12:33.

qualifying marks but then what do you do should James Ellington who I

:12:34.:12:40.

think is showing up in the next round heats, whether he will get the

:12:41.:12:44.

place or whether Adam will. It makes a very tricky indeed. Mitchell Blake

:12:45.:12:50.

has been told that in his same prove his fitness and form because he has

:12:51.:12:57.

been running in America and baby the European Championships are an

:12:58.:13:04.

option? -- maybe. They have been very lukewarm, it is a good way of

:13:05.:13:09.

putting it about who can and cannot compete in those championships. In

:13:10.:13:16.

his case very much necessary that he should show his going in the right

:13:17.:13:17.

direction. Time for heat number two. We can look at the start list, this

:13:18.:13:24.

the easier of the three. Just to remind you, the top two

:13:25.:13:51.

going to the finals later. Chris Stone 21-year-old, indoor champion

:13:52.:14:03.

this year. Yet to break 21 seconds. Sam Landsborough, the Northern

:14:04.:14:06.

champion, those northern Championships three weeks ago, new

:14:07.:14:14.

personal best at 21.33, James Alaka ran yesterday, looking good and not

:14:15.:14:17.

too far away from the qualifying mark. Personal best is inside 21.

:14:18.:14:29.

Elliott Powell of Leicester. Reece Prescod, the 220 rods in lane four

:14:30.:14:31.

and five, Powell and Prescott. And Confidence Lawson, again a

:14:32.:14:45.

semifinal in the 100 metres. And right on the inside of Lane two, a

:14:46.:14:51.

very talented youngster, Connor Wood, very good at the 200 and 400

:14:52.:15:03.

metres. 47, 45 and 21 point 08. The amount of people who have hit the

:15:04.:15:10.

qualifying mark in the 200 metres, it sometimes looks a bit soft

:15:11.:15:17.

compared to other events. But we have quite a few who are not hit the

:15:18.:15:21.

opportunity, you never know one of these guys may get the final.

:15:22.:15:28.

Top two to go through them. Started pretty well, James Alaka and the

:15:29.:15:40.

inside. Connor Wood trying to get himself in the race. Rhys Prescott

:15:41.:15:50.

starting to come through. It is Rhys Prescott who comes away. Elliott

:15:51.:15:56.

Powell gets ahead of him. 20.80, the winning time. James Alaka went out

:15:57.:16:06.

quickly. Ran a very good bend and then faded as Rhys Prescott came

:16:07.:16:13.

into it. Rhys Prescott, showing he has set a personal best. Elliott

:16:14.:16:19.

Powell, the 20-year-old coming through to take second spot. I was

:16:20.:16:27.

thinking about the opportunity these youngsters have with some of the big

:16:28.:16:32.

names out. But Prescod looks good. When he comes down the final 40

:16:33.:16:38.

metres, look at the rhythm. Nice, bouncy. Looks really control. A time

:16:39.:16:46.

of 20.8 and he didn't run a particularly tough bend. Little bit

:16:47.:16:54.

of adrenaline, you never know what can happen. This still makes the

:16:55.:17:01.

event exciting, even though we have had a couple of big major

:17:02.:17:11.

withdrawals. The long jump, Daniel Gardner in round one. 7.59, the best

:17:12.:17:25.

so far. Gardener, north of England champion in the long jump.

:17:26.:17:31.

Perfection on the board. A faction behind the plasticine. It looks a

:17:32.:17:36.

long way into the pit. It looks like it will threaten the lead. 7.67 into

:17:37.:17:42.

first place in the early stages. Five jumps remaining. Chris

:17:43.:17:48.

Tomlinson said this may be his last competition. 34 years of age now.

:17:49.:17:55.

What can he do in this first round? That looks closer to seven metres

:17:56.:18:08.

than eight. He has jumped 8.35. Way behind the board, so some

:18:09.:18:14.

adjustments to be made. Seven point 20. What is wrong with that, other

:18:15.:18:21.

than the 20 centimetres or so behind the plasticine. Lacking a bit of

:18:22.:18:29.

height, maybe? Chris, 7.20 and fourth place at the end of the first

:18:30.:18:37.

round. Looks like Chris's dad is coaching him. The men's high jumpers

:18:38.:18:44.

are out. Yesterday it was the chance for the women high jumpers to show

:18:45.:18:52.

what they could do and the women's pole vault is as well. Representing

:18:53.:19:03.

Britain in the Olympics has been a childhood dream for Morgan Lake. She

:19:04.:19:07.

hasn't quite got heptathlon events, but she will

:19:08.:19:14.

still be going to rear, if only in the high jump. Her nerves well and

:19:15.:19:20.

truly conquered. I was really nervous in the cool room. It is not

:19:21.:19:28.

about the height, but getting as high as you can in the medals.

:19:29.:19:33.

Championship performance, always a bit different. Happy to get the win.

:19:34.:19:39.

My mum doesn't usually watch my competitions and she was there

:19:40.:19:44.

today, so it was nice. It is very exciting. Holly was Bleasdale in

:19:45.:19:49.

2012. Her boyfriend proposed the day of the London Olympics final. Now

:19:50.:19:53.

she is a Bradshaw. She is Rio Grande. It is a good relief to know

:19:54.:20:03.

I am going now. Trying to get in the groove and getting more dieldrin, it

:20:04.:20:11.

is a big relief. Form wise, you showed some decent form. You know

:20:12.:20:17.

there is plenty more to come? I have been struggling with form in

:20:18.:20:21.

competition. I am jumping well in training, but poor in competition. I

:20:22.:20:27.

am confident when it comes to Rio, I will be able to perform. Just to

:20:28.:20:34.

tidy up the results of the second heat of the men's 200. Comfortable

:20:35.:20:38.

when for Rhys Prescott. Elliott Powell took second and James Alaka

:20:39.:20:47.

and Chris Stone will not be in the fastest losers' spots. Heat three is

:20:48.:20:55.

a bit stronger. You would look to the names of Danny Talbot and

:20:56.:21:09.

Zharnel Hughes. Evans had a run out in the 400 metres semifinal

:21:10.:21:15.

yesterday. Just outside 21 seconds this year for 200. Jordan

:21:16.:21:23.

Kirby-Polidore, former English schools champion in 2011. There is

:21:24.:21:31.

Leon Reid, Bristol and West athlete that ran for Northern Ireland in the

:21:32.:21:40.

Commonwealth Games. Zharnel Hughes, hasn't raced to much this season.

:21:41.:21:45.

When he has, a few meetings in Jamaica and Barbados. Fifth at the

:21:46.:21:49.

World Championships last year over this distance. Patrick Kari Kari,

:21:50.:21:59.

just outside 21 seconds, new personal best. Danny Talbot, so

:22:00.:22:06.

familiar with this track and a big competition as well. When this title

:22:07.:22:16.

two years ago. 21.32 in Geneva a couple of weeks ago and there was a

:22:17.:22:23.

strong wind against him. David Bolivar, semifinal at this distance.

:22:24.:22:37.

Christian Jones. Still just 18. Two to go through automatically from

:22:38.:22:42.

this one. I suspect if few will fancy their chances as the fastest

:22:43.:22:48.

loser. Two of those. 21 point 15 would get you in. Zharnel Hughes,

:22:49.:22:55.

the defending champion, the tall figure in lane five. First

:22:56.:23:01.

appearance in Europe this season. Danny Talbot will be hunting him

:23:02.:23:03.

down from lane three. The final heat of the men's 200

:23:04.:23:19.

metres. Zharnel Hughes, slow out up up -- slow out up the blocks.

:23:20.:23:27.

Zharnel Hughes with a lot of work to do. Danny Talbot is clear. Here

:23:28.:23:33.

comes Hughes now. Zharnel Hughes, just taking the second automatic

:23:34.:23:38.

place. Slight headwind, but no doubt who look the better there between

:23:39.:23:43.

Danny Talbot and Zharnel Hughes. Danny Talbot, a long way clear. If

:23:44.:23:52.

Zharnel Hughes was saving some for the tank but the final, it was a

:23:53.:23:57.

risky move. Danny Talbot will go through and will be a strong

:23:58.:24:02.

contender in the final. But Zharnel Hughes, the defending champion, in a

:24:03.:24:07.

bit of bother. He is through, but it did look good. Was a real contrast

:24:08.:24:15.

of performance. You expect Zharnel Hughes to be more aggressive around

:24:16.:24:20.

the bend. Remember last year. That is all we saw of him. Beautiful,

:24:21.:24:27.

easy running gait. But not so great today. Complete contrast in lane

:24:28.:24:31.

three. Danny Talbot out of the blocks. He is a real workhorse,

:24:32.:24:36.

Danny. Keeps his focus. That is important in the 200 metres, don't

:24:37.:24:40.

worry about what is happening around you. Keep your eyes on the job. And

:24:41.:24:46.

the job, but this young man, was qualification. It was a very good

:24:47.:24:51.

piece of running. Sprinters are determined to look to the side to

:24:52.:24:55.

say they are comfortable in their environment. I think Leon Reid will

:24:56.:25:03.

go through as one of the fastest losers. Zharnel Hughes, a rueful

:25:04.:25:09.

smile. Because commonly is through, but he has a lot of improvement.

:25:10.:25:16.

This man was a long way clear, Danny Talbot. The man who won this title

:25:17.:25:23.

last year was fifth in the World Championships and Zharnel Hughes is

:25:24.:25:28.

nowhere near that form. He will be in the final, but a lot of work to

:25:29.:25:35.

do. Round two of the long jump will stop Hamilton, chasing 7.67. It is a

:25:36.:25:46.

big jump. Think he likes it. Second spot is 7.50 nine. Hamilton, 23

:25:47.:25:55.

years of age now. Good height, it may be slight forward rotation,

:25:56.:26:03.

difficult to tell. 7.56, Hamilton. Goes into third place. Still to come

:26:04.:26:15.

this afternoon, we have the men's 800 metres. Michael Rimmer looking

:26:16.:26:25.

for a place on the plane to rear. Then we have the steeplechase. In

:26:26.:26:32.

the 1500 metres, C Bryce against Chris O'Hare. That is over three and

:26:33.:26:38.

three quarters laps of the track. Lots to look forward to, including

:26:39.:26:43.

the final of the men's 200 metres at 4:45 p.m.. Denise, let's analyse

:26:44.:26:51.

what we saw in those three heats. We have this young lad, nobody knew

:26:52.:26:58.

much about, Prescod, who nobody knew much about, ambled through. Use

:26:59.:27:04.

standard here thinking, who is his coach? Can we get some more

:27:05.:27:12.

technical information to him. As a specimen, as a runner, it was

:27:13.:27:20.

dutiful. You look at Usain Bolt, the height and the power, he looks like

:27:21.:27:27.

a strong kid and I am assuming he hasn't done much training over the

:27:28.:27:33.

years. He looked like a talent to me. The man who trains with Usain

:27:34.:27:37.

Bolt, Zharnel Hughes, Danny Talbot won it and Zharnel Hughes was

:27:38.:27:41.

struggling, was he trying to be too clever? Contrast to the young kid

:27:42.:27:45.

who looked fresh and ready to run, Zharnel Hughes did not look like

:27:46.:27:51.

that. It was like he was giving everything. Good stride length but

:27:52.:27:57.

there doesn't seem to be any power. It was all just frequency and turn

:27:58.:28:03.

our, but nothing very impressive. We will see in the final. Yesterday was

:28:04.:28:10.

a great final over 100 metres. The wind was blowing and it created

:28:11.:28:14.

something special. This is the start list for the men's 100 metres. As I

:28:15.:28:21.

say, the wind was blowing and they went quick.

:28:22.:28:36.

James Allington trying to get back. It is going to be incredibly tight.

:28:37.:28:55.

9.90 four. It was very, very close. No doubt about the winner. I think

:28:56.:29:03.

James Allington might have just pipped second spot. We felt the

:29:04.:29:12.

breeze in the stands. We knew it was going to be quick and illegal. But

:29:13.:29:18.

what a race it was, ignore the times. Watch Ellington finish. That

:29:19.:29:29.

is a big story for James Allington. -- Ellington. Confirmation of the

:29:30.:29:34.

result, three men under ten seconds but the time isn't legal because of

:29:35.:29:45.

the wind. We will have another period to wait until selections are

:29:46.:29:51.

confirmed on July the 11th. What a performance from these two guys,

:29:52.:29:56.

doing the business. James, UK champion, but more importantly you

:29:57.:30:01.

are on the plane to Rio and a sub ten second time as well. I felt the

:30:02.:30:13.

guys coming back at me but I had to push towards the line. The goal was

:30:14.:30:21.

to make it on board the plane. I managed to do that and running that

:30:22.:30:28.

time was a bonus. I am happy with today. Tremendous performance.

:30:29.:30:31.

James, you're 100-metre form that day has been fantastic. Was it

:30:32.:30:34.

within you today? Definitely, going on previous years I have always done

:30:35.:30:39.

it too early, I went for the safe option and did the two. I thought I

:30:40.:30:49.

would jump in the mix. It paid off. Tremendous performance,

:30:50.:30:50.

congratulations, you are both heading to Rio.

:30:51.:30:56.

What can you say about a picture like that?

:30:57.:30:58.

LAUGHING What do you make of it? Apart from

:30:59.:31:08.

the lovely decorations: that was one of the best races I've seen from

:31:09.:31:12.

long time. James Ellington, what a surprise that was. We did not expect

:31:13.:31:20.

about it today and any does that and then he does that. For James I think

:31:21.:31:26.

it feels like he has been in the game for a little while and has been

:31:27.:31:30.

to a lot of championships, has participated in relays but that 100

:31:31.:31:33.

metres for him would do him the world of good, this confidence is

:31:34.:31:44.

soaring. There was the lovely moment when he caught the winner. Very

:31:45.:31:50.

dramatic. I heard the times comes through and I thought this is

:31:51.:31:58.

fantastic. Slightly disappointing for the guys with the wind but

:31:59.:32:04.

irrelevant, the two James's... CJ you thought would be top two, he has

:32:05.:32:08.

that nervous wait now and has probably done enough but does he

:32:09.:32:13.

have to prove himself? I don't know, the dangerous is to overcook it. He

:32:14.:32:20.

has proved time and time again that he is up for the challenge and

:32:21.:32:25.

deserves a place. It is important the selectors communicate to him

:32:26.:32:29.

exactly what he needs to do because what he doesn't want is some sense

:32:30.:32:35.

of uncertainty. Do I need to beat this athlete that athletes. Let him

:32:36.:32:38.

know so he could get preparations right. That is right, the athletes

:32:39.:32:43.

need to know if they are on the cusp, the last thing you want is you

:32:44.:32:51.

go into a heavy stint of training and people say we need one more

:32:52.:32:58.

race. An interesting line up to the men's 800 metres. Ben Greenwood 23

:32:59.:33:07.

and Anthony Whiteman over 40. He is the compete with us. He has been

:33:08.:33:12.

around a very long time. It's great to see athletes like that still here

:33:13.:33:15.

and still within a shot of doing something special. The man to look

:33:16.:33:22.

out for is Michael Rimmer. Anthony Whiteman quite a performance and 44

:33:23.:33:28.

years old, this might be a comment on the state of British etude Rita

:33:29.:33:33.

running but we leave it at that. We all have a lot of time for Michael

:33:34.:33:38.

Rimmer, he has not achieved what we hope and thought he would though.

:33:39.:33:45.

That's a fair analysis. The one thing with Michael is he puts his

:33:46.:33:49.

heart on the line. He trains hard and has been here a long time. It

:33:50.:33:53.

would be great if you could book his place but he has his work cut out.

:33:54.:34:02.

Just before that the results of the 200 metres 30s. A good run from

:34:03.:34:15.

Danny Talbot. Leon Reid has gone through as one of the two fastest

:34:16.:34:25.

losers. Interesting comments there. I agree with the state of men's 800

:34:26.:34:31.

metres: Michael Rimmer will be hoping to go to his third Olympics

:34:32.:34:40.

he is running consistently well. Anthony Whiteman wearing his masters

:34:41.:34:43.

less, over the age of 40 and very proud of that and he would say he is

:34:44.:34:48.

there because they are not good enough at the moment. Only three men

:34:49.:34:56.

in the UK have run under 147. -- 1.4 seven. Some good talented.

:34:57.:35:10.

Sean Molloy from Tonbridge. A 20-year-old still improving although

:35:11.:35:19.

his personal best goes all the way back to 2012. Elliot Giles,

:35:20.:35:27.

Birchfield Harriers, has real potential, won the under 23

:35:28.:35:32.

championships last week. Jamie Webb, very good indoor season. From

:35:33.:35:39.

Liverpool, won the championships and as I said three men under 1.47 and

:35:40.:35:48.

he is one of them. James, a very strong 800 metre runner. Then

:35:49.:35:53.

Michael Rimmer who looks arena yesterday. As Jonathan said, has the

:35:54.:36:00.

two qualifying marks and easily the best eight age metre runner in

:36:01.:36:09.

Britain at the moment. This guy never seems to have any problem

:36:10.:36:15.

Anthony Whiteman. I love seeing him chasing people down with rope gusto

:36:16.:36:24.

to make it through to the final. 17-year-old Ben Greenwood from

:36:25.:36:34.

Perth. The 17-year-old, a huge talent, new personal best 1.49.50

:36:35.:36:46.

stop he makes the final. Michael Rimmer looking to confirm his place,

:36:47.:36:47.

seven men. He doesn't need to do anything here,

:36:48.:36:57.

no need to take it out hard, will be interesting to see if anyone fancies

:36:58.:37:00.

pushing on and even getting somewhere near the time 1.46 would

:37:01.:37:06.

be personal best for everyone but Rimmer. Always good to see some

:37:07.:37:14.

young talent coming through. Keeping an eye on him to see if he wants to

:37:15.:37:18.

give it a go to get the qualifying time. Dropping towards the back of

:37:19.:37:23.

the film, even behind Anthony Whiteman who is right where we

:37:24.:37:27.

expect him to be, just hanging on on the first lab animals close them

:37:28.:37:35.

down on the next. If Ben Greenwood can run the time... Ben Greenwood at

:37:36.:37:40.

the back moving alongside, the oldest and the youngest at the back.

:37:41.:37:46.

James Bowness trying to make it a strong run here. Michael Rimmer

:37:47.:37:50.

perfectly placed. Can Elliot Giles strop sometime here? Jamie Webb

:37:51.:37:57.

moving the shoulder. Looking to push things on here. It is Michael Rimmer

:37:58.:38:04.

who glides past. Starting to pull away from the other spell. Michael

:38:05.:38:09.

Rimmer has a little glance, he just wants to keep control of this.

:38:10.:38:14.

Elliot Giles put similar pressure, still not three flying here so Webb

:38:15.:38:23.

trying to hang on. Rimmer looking relaxed but has Elliot Giles got

:38:24.:38:28.

anything here to try to push him on the home straight, he is not finding

:38:29.:38:31.

anything, Helix across an Elliot Giles are starting to kick away.

:38:32.:38:40.

Webb is kicking away, Elliot Giles take the title. Then Jamie Webb.

:38:41.:38:45.

Unbelievably Michael Rimmer has not managed to do the simplest of

:38:46.:38:50.

things, or what looked like the sinister things on paper. -- the

:38:51.:38:58.

simplest of things on paper. He has a qualifying time but that will not

:38:59.:39:02.

mean the selectors have to pick him and he now will have an anxious wait

:39:03.:39:07.

to stop what did you make of that slow race? It looked like he was

:39:08.:39:11.

cruising at when he put his foot down nothing there? It's hard to say

:39:12.:39:15.

he did anything wrong other than not having anything left in his legs. He

:39:16.:39:19.

was making the right moves and was on the right place, all you to do

:39:20.:39:24.

was defend it. It looked like he could not find the reserves in the

:39:25.:39:27.

home straight and started to panic and tightened up even more. The

:39:28.:39:31.

other two sensed it so the minute Elliot Giles sense that, Jamie Webb

:39:32.:39:37.

knew what he had to do. Let's take nothing away from Elliot Giles, very

:39:38.:39:41.

proudly putting on-the-fly, he is the UK champion. That is a big

:39:42.:39:48.

surprise here, Giles was not in contention unless your job is a

:39:49.:39:51.

massive personal best in terms of Olympic selection but he can now

:39:52.:39:58.

going and have a go at it. This led to business as usual for Rimmer. He

:39:59.:40:06.

is checking around, looking for danger, look as though he's about to

:40:07.:40:10.

put his foot down but when he does, he doesn't get the answer he was

:40:11.:40:15.

expecting. You can see his face and shoulders tighten up an Elliot Giles

:40:16.:40:19.

moves past and, he panics even more, Jamie Webb sees that and seizes the

:40:20.:40:23.

initiative and knows he can pull in. Michael Rimmer knows his chance of

:40:24.:40:33.

going to Rio is in jeopardy. Sometimes, Michael is an experienced

:40:34.:40:39.

guide, I do know if you relax too much and in these types of race if

:40:40.:40:45.

you give these guys something and you run the slide, to go out and run

:40:46.:40:49.

a bit harder, it would have put them under pressure instead of himself. I

:40:50.:40:54.

wonder if maybe he was carrying something, the only thing from the

:40:55.:40:57.

side angle was his left leg dragging a little bit. He has had back

:40:58.:41:03.

problems in the past, maybe he was not getting the fire he expected. He

:41:04.:41:08.

is pacing around like a caged tiger but anyway he is obvious or not

:41:09.:41:12.

happy but a man who is very happy is Elliot Giles, the UK champion.

:41:13.:41:17.

I can update your Michael as well, he is devastated, he doesn't want to

:41:18.:41:23.

talk and we understand. Elliott is a happy man. Can you put it into

:41:24.:41:35.

words? I can't... I saw you getting emotional after the finish and now

:41:36.:41:41.

you are in the flag, what did you imagine what is possible today? I

:41:42.:41:47.

don't know what to say. I'm just so grateful. I don't ever think I would

:41:48.:41:55.

be British champion, I'm lost for words, completely lost for words.

:41:56.:41:59.

I'm so happy right now, I wish I could complete the words. Sorry I

:42:00.:42:04.

can't even speak properly. It's OK we love the emotion, it shows what

:42:05.:42:09.

it means. Michael is disappointed but when you saw him at the front he

:42:10.:42:12.

thought it was a foregone conclusion? What were your thoughts

:42:13.:42:20.

was worth I knew if I was in the bag I could go on... I knew when I had

:42:21.:42:28.

300 to go... On the down straight and the back straight I was

:42:29.:42:33.

confident and I got onto the back straight and I thought I had one at

:42:34.:42:39.

and I was able to kick again and I maintained and about 30 metres

:42:40.:42:42.

before the line it crossed my mind I could be British champion and I got

:42:43.:42:47.

quite scared and it hit me just before across the line and it was

:42:48.:42:52.

the best feeling ever. I wish I could put it into words. I feel like

:42:53.:42:59.

I'm worth a million bucks right now. Congratulations tremendous

:43:00.:42:59.

performance. That emotion is something we love to

:43:00.:43:11.

see, someone who has done something special in terms of his performance

:43:12.:43:16.

in winning the UK Championships. Maybe not yet able to make the team

:43:17.:43:20.

for Rio but what a day for Elliot Giles. Jamie Webb getting ahead and

:43:21.:43:27.

while Michael Rimmer has an anxious wait, he does have a qualifying time

:43:28.:43:30.

and could be named Birt automatic altercation has eluded him here.

:43:31.:43:39.

The men's pole vault is all done and dusted, here's a look at the Kear

:43:40.:43:49.

assaults. -- key results. This was Lewis, his third attempt.

:43:50.:43:55.

Unfortunately Steve Lewis fifth in the last Olympic Games but there was

:43:56.:44:09.

this man, Luke cuts. -- Luke cuts with multiple clearances and it

:44:10.:44:12.

looked as though he would be the sole competitor in the pole vault:

:44:13.:44:18.

Olympic Games. Steve Lewis in second place.

:44:19.:44:25.

We move onto the 3000 steeplechase. One name stands out and one figure

:44:26.:44:44.

should dominate, Lenny wait. Really she is out and clear in this, may

:44:45.:44:48.

have some competition with Rosie Clarke. -- Lennie Waite. Some events

:44:49.:44:57.

there are a great strength and depth and in this one, Gemili is head and

:44:58.:45:03.

shoulders above the rest. -- Lennie Waite.

:45:04.:45:18.

Born in Paisley, Scottish father, English mother. Rosie Clarke. And

:45:19.:45:36.

that is Nicole 's Taylor. Stacy Taylor is also in here. The

:45:37.:45:47.

Kilmarnock athlete. Stacy Taylor is not on the start line. Couple of

:45:48.:45:54.

athletes missing. But Lennie Waite has brought her personal best. 9.35

:45:55.:46:07.

this season. She had the IAAF standard for the World Championships

:46:08.:46:11.

last year but wasn't given qualification. Wasn't selected by

:46:12.:46:16.

the GB selectors. Looking forward to Rio, if she should get there. She

:46:17.:46:23.

will have far too much for the rest of the field here. Paula Radcliffe,

:46:24.:46:28.

Rosie Clarke, good 1500 metre pedigree. If you have good pace over

:46:29.:46:36.

1500, are the athletes reluctant to try the steeplechase? But there must

:46:37.:46:40.

be an avenue for a few good athletes to try it and think it might be the

:46:41.:46:49.

event for them? Absolutely. That is what you see with the strength of

:46:50.:46:55.

the canyons. They see it as an individual event, rather than I am

:46:56.:46:59.

not good enough over the other distances. They do concentrate

:47:00.:47:02.

specifically on it. But if you are struggling and not making the team

:47:03.:47:06.

over the 1500 metres, or 5000 metres, try the 3000 steeplechase if

:47:07.:47:12.

your body can cope with it. One of the athletes had injuries and she

:47:13.:47:21.

has had to leave it. That is the downside of it. They come through

:47:22.:47:28.

the water jump together. Liz McLaughlin said her body can't stand

:47:29.:47:34.

up to the constant impact. She was down at 9.35, a lot of training done

:47:35.:47:40.

inside, training in the pool. The impact of training on the track and

:47:41.:47:44.

going over the barriers was too difficult. In a lot of her training,

:47:45.:47:51.

she only went over the barriers when she raced. There is a brittle edge.

:47:52.:47:57.

Lennie Waite is down to about the same times, 9.35 this season. You

:47:58.:48:03.

want to find another ten seconds but she is the best Britain has at the

:48:04.:48:10.

moment. With the steps forward she has taken this year, she is showing

:48:11.:48:16.

the potential of finding the ten seconds. It will put her into

:48:17.:48:20.

contention in Diamond League races and with the hope of being in the

:48:21.:48:26.

final. We have seen the level of steeplechasing the women globally

:48:27.:48:29.

taking huge step forward, but she could be up there challenging and

:48:30.:48:33.

getting into the final is the first step. It is still a fairly new event

:48:34.:48:43.

in women's terms. I suppose in the last 20 years, it has come in, not

:48:44.:48:53.

even that. It is new and that is why times are improving all the time.

:48:54.:48:58.

Again it is an event which women could try. The key thing is, because

:48:59.:49:04.

it is a new event, you haven't got youngsters who have grown up wanting

:49:05.:49:09.

to be a steeplechase. They have moved from other bands. Now we are

:49:10.:49:12.

getting the first generation who have had it as an event to blame

:49:13.:49:25.

for. -- aim for. Come on, Chris Tomlinson. 34 years of age, looking

:49:26.:49:34.

to dig deep and improve on the 7.20 first round. Might be a slight

:49:35.:49:39.

improvement. The lead is still Daniel Gardiner. We are now in the

:49:40.:49:52.

third round. It looks ragged. Fifth in the Athens 2004 Olympic Games.

:49:53.:49:57.

Better height on that, I have to say. That was better. Something to

:49:58.:50:05.

go with. Smile from him. Improvement, fifth place, seven

:50:06.:50:19.

point 43 and five jumps remaining. Nothing starting that will threaten

:50:20.:50:23.

the qualifying time unless they pick it up now. Into the home straight

:50:24.:50:29.

again and also in the FirstGroup of three is Louise Webb from

:50:30.:50:36.

Southampton junior bronze-medallist. And Rosie Clarke, who we expected to

:50:37.:50:44.

be pushing on. The raised they are running is not close to the

:50:45.:50:49.

qualifying time, but close to the personal best of rosy wrap, who is

:50:50.:50:54.

having a greater run out there today. -- Louise Webb. Rosie Clarke,

:50:55.:51:03.

European indoor finalists last year in Prague. Fifth in the Diamond

:51:04.:51:08.

League meeting here over the 1500 meetings. She has plenty of pace as

:51:09.:51:17.

1500 metre runner. Hoping the pace doesn't lift too much. She wants a

:51:18.:51:24.

quick time but in terms of winning the title, if it remains steady and

:51:25.:51:29.

slow, she has a chance. She absolutely has. It is very blustery

:51:30.:51:34.

out there today so they are sticking together. Many times you race at

:51:35.:51:38.

Birmingham, it isn't windy, but the longer they stay in the pack, you

:51:39.:51:44.

will draw the benefits from that and Lennie Waite knows she can raise the

:51:45.:51:54.

pace and get away from them easily. Little stutter from Rosie Clarke.

:51:55.:52:02.

Lennie Waite, in front. I wonder when she will begin to lift the

:52:03.:52:08.

place. Louise Webb, hanging on well. She is doing everything she can to

:52:09.:52:15.

ensure a new personal best. If she can live with these two. We will get

:52:16.:52:26.

an idea when we see the two Kalama to split. It is hard to judge when

:52:27.:52:34.

the water jump is on the outside. But it should be coming up that they

:52:35.:52:43.

stay on that pace. We know the form Lennie Waite is in, she ran her new

:52:44.:52:48.

personal best in Portland in Oregon. A lot of training and studying. She

:52:49.:52:56.

is at college in the United States as well and works over there are a

:52:57.:53:02.

lot of. At the moment, leading this group of three. Rosie Clarke is

:53:03.:53:07.

tucked in behind them. Louise Webb, 25-year-old with a personal best of

:53:08.:53:11.

10.10. Tritium much the same pace. Pretty much spot on. You would

:53:12.:53:16.

expect to see Lennie Waite stretch it out, as she is doing. Maybe she

:53:17.:53:22.

was waiting until the last kilometre to make it into a bit up tempo.

:53:23.:53:29.

Rosie Clarke is working hard go with her. Louise Webb, sorry, struggling.

:53:30.:53:33.

But hanging on at the moment. 800 metres to go. Lennie Waite, Rosie

:53:34.:53:37.

Clarke and Louise Webb still going. Looking for a big personal best and

:53:38.:53:43.

you suspect the battle for the title be between the two women in front.

:53:44.:53:50.

The pace has not been brutal. As a 1500 metre now, she will fancy their

:53:51.:53:55.

chances. Lennie Waite, tries to lift it again. Rosie Clarke moved a bit

:53:56.:54:01.

wider, to cite the barrier easier, but also she is letting them know

:54:02.:54:11.

she is still there, she is taking those barriers better than Lennie

:54:12.:54:17.

Waite. At the moment, just under six and had metres remaining. Lennie

:54:18.:54:22.

Waite has come to the water again. Rosie Clarke moving out in front at

:54:23.:54:29.

the moment. Louise Webb is still there. We are having a real race.

:54:30.:54:33.

Lennie Waite, highway and clear. The best steeplechaser in Great Britain

:54:34.:54:37.

at the moment. But she is a couple of metres behind Rosie Clarke at the

:54:38.:54:43.

moment. She is focusing her eyes on the back of Rosie Clarke and trying

:54:44.:54:50.

to stay with her. Hopefully she feels she has something else and

:54:51.:54:54.

then she will move back in front. But Rosie Clarke was not going to

:54:55.:55:01.

let that time slip away, she has her personal best in her sights. Louise

:55:02.:55:08.

Webb is doing her best to stay on to these two. Top two will be enough

:55:09.:55:15.

for Lennie Waite to book her place in Rio. But she wants this title.

:55:16.:55:19.

Rosie Clarke alongside her once again. It seems every time she goes

:55:20.:55:23.

down that back straight, she does struggle. Every time she takes that

:55:24.:55:32.

aria with 300 metres to go, Lennie Waite struggles a bit. Every time

:55:33.:55:39.

she tries to lift and click, Rosie Clarke responds. Rosie Clarke has

:55:40.:55:44.

gone round the outside. She has enough to go round the outside of

:55:45.:55:49.

Lennie Waite. They take the water very well. I am not sure Lennie

:55:50.:55:55.

Waite has anything to give. She looks around. Rosie Clarke to the

:55:56.:56:00.

final barrier. This was supposed to be Lennie Waite's title. Almost a

:56:01.:56:05.

smile now from Rosie Clarke. Lennie Waite has nothing left. Rosie Clarke

:56:06.:56:10.

is going to take the title. She is the UK champion, the 3000 metres

:56:11.:56:14.

steeplechase. Great run from Louise Webb, who will have a big personal

:56:15.:56:20.

best. But the smile, celebration and the victory belongs to Rosie Clarke.

:56:21.:56:25.

She shadowed Lennie Waite all the way and had enough to take the

:56:26.:56:31.

title. You can see what it means. It is a lock-up pure delight. Taking a

:56:32.:56:37.

risk moving to a new event. This could be a new event which could be

:56:38.:56:43.

a whole new start. She has run a personal best I couple of seconds.

:56:44.:56:50.

It is more of the manner that will give her confidence. Whether she

:56:51.:56:54.

gets to qualifying standards in the next 15 days, remains to be seen.

:56:55.:57:00.

Lennie Waite should be qualifying. There is a girl who has found a new

:57:01.:57:04.

event. Lennie Waite probably stunned. We all expected her to win

:57:05.:57:12.

this title today. But Rosie Clarke, it is celebration and surprise. A

:57:13.:57:18.

personal best, taking the title. Louise Webb has run a big personal

:57:19.:57:25.

best of under ten minutes. Just over the water for the last time and

:57:26.:57:31.

Rosie Clarke, you could see she almost began to realise what was

:57:32.:57:36.

about to happen. The confidence when she realised she was going away

:57:37.:57:40.

gives her more energy. She was rapidly increasing the gap over

:57:41.:57:46.

Lennie Waite. Her last kilometre, she may not have had the qualifying

:57:47.:57:51.

time but she ran the last kilometre at the place she would need to to

:57:52.:57:58.

secure the time easily. Rosie Clarke takes the victory. She is the UK

:57:59.:58:04.

champion with a personal best, head of Lennie Waite and Louise Webb in

:58:05.:58:09.

third lace. All about the victory, forget about Rio. She may have done

:58:10.:58:14.

something to achieve that, but this is about becoming the UK champion.

:58:15.:58:19.

She is down with Lennie Waite talking to fill. Delighted, change

:58:20.:58:25.

of events and a British title. What it meant when you cross the line?

:58:26.:58:34.

Over the moon, it has been a really hard process, but I am so happy.

:58:35.:58:40.

Andrew was saying at the end of the commentary, people chasing real

:58:41.:58:44.

places, but sometimes it is about becoming British champion for the

:58:45.:58:48.

first time? Everything is at a different stage. This was one of my

:58:49.:58:56.

big challenges for the year. I would like to chase for Rio, obviously,

:58:57.:59:02.

but we will see. You will be going to Rio, congratulations. I cannot

:59:03.:59:07.

believe it. I am disappointed I couldn't win today. But I felt the

:59:08.:59:15.

weight of the world on my shoulders. I had two people with me, not in a

:59:16.:59:22.

great place, wanting to avoid messing things up and get to the

:59:23.:59:28.

finish line. I have my ticket, but I was disappointed I didn't win today.

:59:29.:59:33.

No such show selection problem, you are there. Such a relief. Last year

:59:34.:59:42.

didn't go down as well, but I am proud of myself for not letting it

:59:43.:59:51.

make me quit or doubt myself. To get back on the horse and make my way to

:59:52.:59:58.

Rio, it is the best feeling ever. Congratulations. And Rosie,

:59:59.:59:59.

congratulations on the title. Rosie Clarke with a victory. Many

:00:00.:00:11.

congratulations to Louise Webb, new personal best. Really interesting as

:00:12.:00:21.

was the men's 800 before. We can speak to Steve Cram now, let's talk

:00:22.:00:27.

about the steeplechase, Lennie Waite, felt the weight of not being

:00:28.:00:30.

selected for Beijing altered the performance? It was almost coming

:00:31.:00:37.

back to Michael Rimmer Haswell, when you look the list and you think

:00:38.:00:41.

you're better than everyone on the list, it can be a negative thing. In

:00:42.:00:51.

the sense that the only bad thing, something bad can happen, you could

:00:52.:00:55.

ship over a barrier so you are not racing how you normally are. That is

:00:56.:01:04.

what happened to Rimmer, not executed properly, if he had run a

:01:05.:01:09.

good hard race as normal he would have been fine. Struggled in that

:01:10.:01:14.

respect. But well done to Rosie Clarke. In terms of Rosie Clarke and

:01:15.:01:22.

selection, you need to be selected to times, but an athlete like that

:01:23.:01:29.

who has changed events, maybe you look at one and the potential? There

:01:30.:01:34.

is the option if someone gives one qualifying mark that they can select

:01:35.:01:40.

them come July. We have been talking a lot about automatic selection, the

:01:41.:01:46.

top two marks here. She might have the chance to run one: she is

:01:47.:01:52.

improving all the time and is developing athlete in a new event.

:01:53.:01:57.

They may well look favourably upon it. In terms of Michael Rimmer, you

:01:58.:02:06.

wonder if selection might be too far, do you look at him and think we

:02:07.:02:10.

will give him another chance or perhaps not, I don't know? Neither

:02:11.:02:16.

do why. I think in a year where there were other options, his chance

:02:17.:02:23.

might have gone. Sadly we don't have too much in terms of options at that

:02:24.:02:27.

event, that doesn't mean they will look kindly because he has had a

:02:28.:02:33.

good career. He didn't deliver today an type of race where he should be

:02:34.:02:36.

able to deliver, he will know that more than anybody else. He hasn't

:02:37.:02:42.

made it, he hasn't exactly given the selectors a headache. If he does get

:02:43.:02:47.

selected in July and then he would have a lot to thank them. White will

:02:48.:02:59.

wait to see on that, Chris O'Hare to Charlie Grice? Head-to-head. Lee

:03:00.:03:06.

Emanuel tends to run well in America has just missed the qualifying time

:03:07.:03:10.

and did not looked so good in the heat. Certainly Chris O'Hare and

:03:11.:03:17.

Charlie are in the book seats, they have qualifying times and won a

:03:18.:03:21.

finish in the top. Jake has been there or thereabouts and I think he

:03:22.:03:24.

will want to upset the party today and hope you can get the qualifying

:03:25.:03:29.

mark so really looking forward to. The great tactical race we are in

:03:30.:03:32.

store for and it will come down to who has the best kick I think.

:03:33.:03:42.

There is Charlie and Jake next to one another. The two Norwich and

:03:43.:03:49.

very well and Jake has run a lot of races this year. His dad is doing

:03:50.:03:57.

the announcing here in the arena. They took the chance to send over

:03:58.:04:01.

for a race in America where he has certainly run a lot better than he

:04:02.:04:07.

have so far. He was in the same heat is Charlie and look good as

:04:08.:04:10.

qualifying. Chris O'Hare looked very strong as well. And Tom Lancashire.

:04:11.:04:14.

There is the full list. A race full of the best talent, Joss

:04:15.:04:33.

Kerr from Edinburgh to. The junior champion. That might josh. There he

:04:34.:04:41.

is, good to see him in the final. Chris is the one who normally runs

:04:42.:04:46.

the better tactical race. That is the one thing you would put in his

:04:47.:04:50.

camp if you like to say Chris usually runs a very good smart race.

:04:51.:04:57.

Lee Emanuel knows he has it in him to run. Charlie Grice has a

:04:58.:05:04.

qualifying time, a great win in the international mile. At the end of

:05:05.:05:10.

May. As I said Jake popped over to the US to run in Boston. Ran a

:05:11.:05:16.

season 's best just outside the qualifying mark.

:05:17.:05:22.

And then we go all the way through Cameron Boyek, his British vest from

:05:23.:05:33.

his time at the European under 23 championships. It'll be interesting.

:05:34.:05:40.

I expect Tom Lancashire will want to leave it until the last 2-300. Tom

:05:41.:05:46.

at is best of course, a man who has won this title before. An intriguing

:05:47.:05:54.

men's 1500 metres final. Chris O'Hare and Charlie Grice with a

:05:55.:05:58.

chance to cement their place and Jake Wightman and Tom Lancashire

:05:59.:05:59.

hoping to get in the top two. Straightaway Charlie Grice going to

:06:00.:06:12.

control it and write on his shoulder Josh Kerr, the future to represent

:06:13.:06:17.

Great Britain in the world Junior Championships. Finished fiveth. He

:06:18.:06:22.

is out there to gain some championship experience and maybe

:06:23.:06:26.

see how he can put races back-to-back with a view to

:06:27.:06:34.

performing in the final. As Lee Emanuel decides not to hang around

:06:35.:06:37.

completely, he moves to the front but still looks slow. Jake Wightman

:06:38.:06:42.

moving up a bit so the main contenders, Tom Lancashire sitting

:06:43.:06:46.

off a bit. Scotland have a chance to have more people in the Olympic team

:06:47.:06:50.

than they have ever had before so Josh Kerr another one. Chris O'Hare,

:06:51.:06:57.

another Scot hoping to get it right here. What this does do is give all

:06:58.:07:01.

of the guys a good chance to learn those tactics of racing. Racing

:07:02.:07:07.

without pacemakers as it would be in a heat of a Championships and in the

:07:08.:07:13.

final. Some of them like you say are better than others. Chris O'Hare

:07:14.:07:15.

very good at making the right decisions under pressure and putting

:07:16.:07:19.

yourself in the right place to respond to any move as it happens.

:07:20.:07:27.

Charlie Grice a little boxed in. Tom is on the outside of that, almost

:07:28.:07:33.

like a box and you don't want to be in the middle. Two laps to go and

:07:34.:07:39.

Jake White with a little boxed in. Chris O'Hare will always use the

:07:40.:07:46.

elbows to get through. Just eases himself through the ant always

:07:47.:07:48.

putting yourself in the right position. Charlie on the inside,

:07:49.:07:53.

Jake Wightman, Tom Lancashire following and keeping an eye. The

:07:54.:08:00.

race has not got going yet. He comes Tom Lancashire, suspect he thinks he

:08:01.:08:04.

will have a better chance with a longer run for home. That is what we

:08:05.:08:09.

have seen in a couple of races, people moving away to make a move

:08:10.:08:13.

down the back straight and realise how windy it is. A bit of a stumble

:08:14.:08:19.

there, Chris O'Hare, his back legs caught up but nobody has gone down.

:08:20.:08:24.

Everything we said about Chris almost becoming, Lancashire on a

:08:25.:08:33.

good position. Charlie Grice looking for room, Jake Wightman in a great

:08:34.:08:38.

place as they hit the Bell, the five big names all here. This is a big

:08:39.:08:44.

sprint, who has the best 400 metre pace, that is what it is boiling

:08:45.:08:50.

down to here. Just over 300 to go. Chris O'Hare looks poised, Jake

:08:51.:08:53.

Wightman in a good spot, J Grice won't want to -- Charlie Grice, Tom

:08:54.:09:03.

Lancashire goes. Jake Wightman keep clear of the trouble, Chris O'Hare,

:09:04.:09:12.

Charlie Grice tries to follow. The top two to guarantee a place. Jake

:09:13.:09:15.

Wightman is trying to upset the party for those two and give himself

:09:16.:09:19.

a chance in Olympic selection. Charlie Grice ready to go again, as

:09:20.:09:23.

Jake Wightman gone too early with that burst? Charlie Grice looks as

:09:24.:09:29.

though he will hang on birds Chris O'Hare, top two is good enough.

:09:30.:09:35.

Charlie Grice and Chris O'Hare. The two men who knew that a top two

:09:36.:09:41.

finish would be good enough to live on and they have guaranteed a spot

:09:42.:09:49.

in Rio. A scrappy race, not a great race in terms of times, we were not

:09:50.:09:54.

expecting that but they did what they had to do. I must say Tom

:09:55.:10:00.

Lancashire will feel aggrieved because he was pushed over down the

:10:01.:10:04.

back straight and of course if that was deliberate or deemed to have

:10:05.:10:07.

been delivered by Charlie Grice and that officials might have a look but

:10:08.:10:10.

let's hope not. The question I was going to ask was do you finish in

:10:11.:10:16.

the top two if you are disqualified? Tom Lancashire would feel aggrieved

:10:17.:10:19.

because he was hard done by. He ran well yesterday. He was making all

:10:20.:10:25.

the moves and did not deserve to go down there and it is hard to see

:10:26.:10:32.

that happen to an athlete. They were all looking for room, it was getting

:10:33.:10:36.

close and Charlie realised he was in a bad place there and then it's more

:10:37.:10:42.

of a clip than anything, he did put half a hand on the back but then a

:10:43.:10:45.

clip from behind, he was panicking a little bit and that is really bad

:10:46.:10:51.

luck for Tom Lancashire, these things do happen in the 1500 metres.

:10:52.:10:55.

Especially when people start to panic. Jake Wightman burn a bit too

:10:56.:11:01.

hard here going past Chris O'Hare. A brave effort to get there. With Jake

:11:02.:11:07.

the adrenaline surge from that for maybe spurred him into making his

:11:08.:11:11.

move a bit too early and he ran well but was not able to hold off Chris

:11:12.:11:16.

O'Hare P even though he probably will feel a bit aggrieved he still

:11:17.:11:21.

kept fighting all the way because he knew he could get a top two finish

:11:22.:11:28.

and guaranteed selection for Rio. You can see there, the two we would

:11:29.:11:31.

expect to finish have done that but I'm not sure the race was how we

:11:32.:11:39.

wanted to see it happen. There we go, Charlie Grice and Chris O'Hare

:11:40.:11:43.

booking places in Rio Amrabat luck for Tom Lancashire. Clearly

:11:44.:11:52.

delighted to have secured a place, the pressure is always on, must be a

:11:53.:11:58.

thrilling thing? Mien Chris pulled through today, it is a fair result

:11:59.:12:01.

but I feel bad because I clip Tom Werner back straight but that is

:12:02.:12:07.

racing and I'm happy to get the job done today. What do you remember

:12:08.:12:12.

what happened? Just a line of people and I tried to move out and I clip

:12:13.:12:20.

Tim. -- clip Tim. Part and parcel of him. You are battling all the way

:12:21.:12:31.

Chris, you don it? I was trying to wait for 180 to unload Bert Jake and

:12:32.:12:35.

Charlie went by me and it caught me a little bit off-guard, but I'm glad

:12:36.:12:41.

I managed to rally back and get second just to secure that spot.

:12:42.:12:47.

Congratulations are in order because a baby is on the way? The end of

:12:48.:12:53.

October I and my wife are expecting, gives us the extra motivation to

:12:54.:12:57.

make the world a bit brighter. Congratulations to you both.

:12:58.:13:03.

The two we expected but not as we expected? That is what you expect

:13:04.:13:13.

from middle distance racing, it is very unfortunate and I know Tom

:13:14.:13:17.

Lancashire worked so hard and he seemed to have been in the right

:13:18.:13:20.

place at the right time but this is where the incident takes place and

:13:21.:13:25.

Charlie for me, looks like he is trying to steady himself, he does

:13:26.:13:30.

clip them birds we see this so often. I wouldn't want to apportion

:13:31.:13:34.

blame there, bitterly disappointing though. We will leave that insulin

:13:35.:13:40.

apart, what he saw at the end was Charlie Grice actually looking very

:13:41.:13:47.

much the strongest of the two. Charlie Grice that good. He did. I

:13:48.:13:54.

just think these two really do excite me, I have watched in a

:13:55.:13:58.

couple of championship star, it has to be said that Chris O'Hare tends

:13:59.:14:03.

to get itself in the right position but Charlie Grice is a real talent.

:14:04.:14:07.

If he runs the rights race at the championships then you never know

:14:08.:14:17.

what he can do. 110 meter hurdles next,, great to see Andrew Pozzi

:14:18.:14:24.

back. Yes what a torrid time he has had over the last four years, coming

:14:25.:14:29.

into the prime of his career where you think well this guy is really

:14:30.:14:32.

talented, a good Goode hurling technique and then he has had a

:14:33.:14:36.

string of injuries that has prevented him from showing his best.

:14:37.:14:38.

-- good. Again not quite sure, he looked so

:14:39.:14:52.

good in the qualifying heats, very fluid over the hurdles, maybe it is

:14:53.:14:58.

just again that cycle that they find themselves in. Final of the men's

:14:59.:15:01.

hurdles. Great to see him back, Andrew Pozzi.

:15:02.:15:17.

Running consistently quickly as well. Coming into these

:15:18.:15:22.

championships, he had three out talk races. We will see how he goes here.

:15:23.:15:34.

Let's tidy that up. What about Josh Kerr, the 18-year-old finishing in

:15:35.:15:41.

fourth. Great run from him. But Tom Lancashire, he did cross the line,

:15:42.:15:47.

really sad at the he had worked so hard to get himself into a

:15:48.:15:52.

challenging position. An intriguing final in prospect here. Two men,

:15:53.:16:03.

Lawrence Clarke and Andrew Pozzi. William Sharman, we saw him

:16:04.:16:07.

struggling with his hamstring at the end of the heat, which he did win.

:16:08.:16:18.

He doesn't start. David Omoregie, he goes on the outside as well. You

:16:19.:16:28.

never know in sprinting hurdles, just run a good race and strange

:16:29.:16:35.

things might happen. Khai Riley-La Borde, very talented youngster.

:16:36.:16:42.

There is Lawrence Clarke. The defending champion. Such a

:16:43.:16:49.

consistent athlete. Is there something quicker for him today?

:16:50.:16:54.

Will it be enough in this race question mark David King is on the

:16:55.:17:03.

outside of him. Still just 22. New personal best this season. Great to

:17:04.:17:10.

see him running again and three times in the 13.30 this year. 13.32

:17:11.:17:20.

in Loughborough last month. Joseph Hylton goes in lane seven. Former

:17:21.:17:24.

Welsh champion. On the outside, David Omoregie. The lane of

:17:25.:17:54.

William Sharman is empty. Andrew Pozzi has looked so good in

:17:55.:17:56.

qualifying this season. The long jump is carrying on with a

:17:57.:18:25.

little bit of noise. Just asking them to settle once again. No

:18:26.:18:30.

William Sharman, he did look pretty good in his qualifying. But he has

:18:31.:18:37.

had those problems. I suspect he has pulled out with his hands scream --

:18:38.:18:45.

hamstring. Lane three is empty. Lane number four is filled by the

:18:46.:18:49.

defending champion, Lawrence Clarke. He is a man who makes few mistakes.

:18:50.:18:56.

Doesn't run too many ragged races. Doesn't have the same raw speed as

:18:57.:19:02.

Andrew Pozzi. Lawrence Clarke and Andrew Pozzi have qualifying times.

:19:03.:19:12.

So finish in the top two and a trip to Rio is guaranteed. The final of

:19:13.:19:21.

the men's 110 metres final. Cleanly away.

:19:22.:19:32.

It is Andrew Pozzi. Back to all those injuries, he comes back and

:19:33.:19:39.

take the title 13.31 into a strong breeze as well. It is a new personal

:19:40.:19:46.

best and he is back to his best and better. Andrew Pozzi is the

:19:47.:19:51.

champion. Such a popular victory. Takes it from Lawrence Clarke. They

:19:52.:19:58.

are both heading to Rio. The champion is Andrew Pozzi. It was

:19:59.:20:04.

superb. All he has gone through in hurdling terms. Colin Jackson knows

:20:05.:20:08.

all about the in trees that can happen. It can be very hard event on

:20:09.:20:16.

the body. And for him to take the title in that time is very

:20:17.:20:22.

impressive. Good to see him back on the track. Training is difficult for

:20:23.:20:27.

this man. I cannot reiterate to anyone have virtually impossible it

:20:28.:20:31.

is for him to do what he is doing. He is just incredible. Spends very

:20:32.:20:37.

little time doing any hurdling because of problems with his

:20:38.:20:41.

thoughts. His consistency is always going to be up and down. He knows

:20:42.:20:48.

that and keeps it in his mind. Every time he runs a race, it is a

:20:49.:20:54.

brand-new challenge. Great to see what he's keeping strong, aggressive

:20:55.:20:57.

and was at it. With all of those problems he has had through all his

:20:58.:21:05.

career, for him to come out and still produce prominences like this

:21:06.:21:09.

is outstanding. It tells you what quality this young man is over these

:21:10.:21:14.

hurdles. I just only wish he could get the real whole season of the

:21:15.:21:20.

winter work behind him, when everything is absolutely perfect.

:21:21.:21:24.

You are always looking at the hurdling technique, but it is the

:21:25.:21:28.

speed between the barriers as well, and Andrew Pozzi had more zip? He is

:21:29.:21:34.

a natural sprinter. He hasn't had the opportunity to do as much sprint

:21:35.:21:42.

work as he could. If he could do that, he would be around the 13

:21:43.:21:47.

seconds. People would be thinking, no way, but trust me, I know what

:21:48.:21:54.

this boy is capable of. Here are the two guys heading to Rio.

:21:55.:21:56.

that, he would be around the 13 seconds. People would

:21:57.:21:56.

two guys heading to Rio. Congratulations. Wearing the British

:21:57.:21:59.

best today proudly and delivering a final performance worthy of the

:22:00.:22:03.

place, and? It has been the best performance of my season. I have

:22:04.:22:09.

struggled to find my rhythm, but I am delighted. I like coming here to

:22:10.:22:14.

Birmingham. Alas trials I did was for the last Olympics, so I'm glad

:22:15.:22:21.

to be back here for years later. What a long road back it has been

:22:22.:22:28.

but we have seen how talented you are. Lawrence, great memories of the

:22:29.:22:34.

last Olympics view, you are back for another go? Andrew and I finished

:22:35.:22:39.

last year and a great competitor. Adverse conditions, so it will be

:22:40.:22:43.

great for the summer. We wish you both for Rio and in the next few

:22:44.:22:49.

weeks for your preparation. Well done.

:22:50.:22:56.

Confirmation of that result. Andrew Pozzi and Lawrence Clarke are

:22:57.:23:09.

heading to Rio. That looks better. Chasing a lead of

:23:10.:23:15.

the opening jump. It looks as though he may have given

:23:16.:23:36.

the lead a bit of a look at. Swings the arm hard. Looks like his best so

:23:37.:23:46.

far in the fifth round so far, Otuonye. Just one centimetre behind

:23:47.:23:53.

Daniel Gardiner. But competition is over, Daniel Gardiner, the smallest

:23:54.:24:00.

possible margin ahead of Otuonye. No Greg Rutherford, head of the Olympic

:24:01.:24:08.

Games. Daniel Gardiner will have to jump 8.15, should he want to join

:24:09.:24:13.

them. Chris Tomlinson is alongside me.

:24:14.:24:19.

This takes me back in time because I remember coming to join your group

:24:20.:24:26.

in 1994, 90 five. So much has happened to both of us since then.

:24:27.:24:31.

In terms of your performance, you were on social media and you said if

:24:32.:24:38.

you didn't qualify for Rio, that was it? I can say, if I am not coming

:24:39.:24:44.

out and jumping over eight metres, which I haven't done for a few

:24:45.:24:50.

months, it would probably be it. So realistically, this is probably it.

:24:51.:24:55.

It is quite emotional, it has been a few years, my first Great Britain

:24:56.:25:01.

international was 2001. I have loved representing the country and I have

:25:02.:25:06.

very much warm my heart on my sleeve and I have tried my best. I have had

:25:07.:25:13.

an incredible journey. Your dad was here today, is he coaching you now

:25:14.:25:19.

or just to support you in what potentially was your last

:25:20.:25:22.

competition? He has been there to support me, a bit of coaching. I

:25:23.:25:27.

have been coached by some great coaches, Peter Stanley and I have

:25:28.:25:32.

been around these coaches year in, year out for over 15 years. I

:25:33.:25:38.

basically copied a lot of their training models. The reality is, it

:25:39.:25:44.

is not in the body any more. It happens to all others what next?

:25:45.:25:49.

Great question. I have my personal training qualifications in the

:25:50.:25:52.

sport. I enjoy going round schools. Maybe something like that. I might

:25:53.:25:57.

relax for a few weeks. I will keep yourself busy. If I go out and get a

:25:58.:26:06.

so-called proper job, I will have to have a shave and a haircut. The

:26:07.:26:09.

women's 1500 metres. so-called proper job, I will have to

:26:10.:26:11.

have a shave and a haircut. The women's 1500 metres. Perhaps the

:26:12.:26:16.

drama we saw in the men's. Two names are dominating. You look at the

:26:17.:26:27.

experience of Hannah England if she can come back from those injuries.

:26:28.:26:40.

Charlene Thomas has done well. There is Thomas. There is Laura Wakeman.

:26:41.:26:52.

It is evens between Laura Wakeman and Laura Mule. Laura Wakeman,

:26:53.:26:58.

wonderful to see her on the start line. Great spell in 2014. Hannah

:26:59.:27:12.

England. Laura Mewhort. The defending champion. Leon Pryce in

:27:13.:27:21.

the Welsh vest. The final of the women's 1500

:27:22.:27:37.

metres. You look at the tall figure of Hannah England who was a world

:27:38.:27:42.

silver-medallist in 2011. But so many injuries and illness last year.

:27:43.:27:49.

Jessica Judd has switched from the 800 to the 1500. Laura Muir and

:27:50.:27:56.

Laura Wakeman biding their time at the back at the moment. What are you

:27:57.:28:04.

expecting, Paula? It should come down but them to come through this

:28:05.:28:10.

race. What we have seen with Moultrie, is a bit of nerves. It is

:28:11.:28:17.

risky when the pace goes out a really slow, especially in women's

:28:18.:28:22.

races. There is a lot of bumping and barging. She has decided to go and

:28:23.:28:28.

make this an honest race and she has decided to stay out of trouble. She

:28:29.:28:34.

is staying out of trouble at the moment, Moultrie. You wonder if that

:28:35.:28:39.

is a bit of adrenaline that will cost her later on in the race. Back

:28:40.:28:45.

in the pack, Hannah England and Bobby Clay, what a consistent runner

:28:46.:28:50.

she is. Look out for Sarah Macdonald in the black vest. But Jo Moultrie

:28:51.:28:57.

is a long way clear at the moment. Nobody has decided to go with her.

:28:58.:29:07.

It is not like she has gone out at a crazy pace. It is nothing startling.

:29:08.:29:12.

Some of these girls soon need to make up their minds. Because she

:29:13.:29:17.

probably has gone too fast and will die a little bit, but it is too big

:29:18.:29:27.

of a gap to believing in the British Championships. If your chance does

:29:28.:29:31.

not lie in the sprint finish, this is the best way to run it. Jo

:29:32.:29:37.

Moultrie is still a long way clear. Even athletes with the calibre of

:29:38.:29:41.

Laura Weightman and Laura Mule, will realise that the pace has got to

:29:42.:29:45.

lift. Who will be the first great because you will leading the race to

:29:46.:29:53.

poll Jo Moultrie back end. It is not quick and she is probably thinking,

:29:54.:30:00.

come on what are you doing? We saw Laura Weightman to look at Laura

:30:01.:30:07.

your to decide if they are going to go. They are quickly now reeling her

:30:08.:30:15.

in. They are capable of doing it but it was a battle to see who would

:30:16.:30:18.

crack first. Ten seconds off her personal best,

:30:19.:30:37.

ran 4.07 point 18, it is Laura Weightman and Laura Muir who are at

:30:38.:30:44.

the front. As they go through the ballot is the battle we expected

:30:45.:30:49.

with Charlene Thomas well-placed, Bobby Clay will be struggling and

:30:50.:30:53.

has Hannah England got enough pace to get yourself back up? There you

:30:54.:30:59.

see the change of pace. Laura Muir putting on a show and what a gap,

:31:00.:31:05.

Charlene Thomas is hanging onto the back of Laura Weightman who has to

:31:06.:31:09.

finish in the top two to guaranteed Olympic qualification. Laura Nouble

:31:10.:31:14.

take the title as she did last year, look at the gap -- Laura Muir. Laura

:31:15.:31:22.

Weightman looking round and digging in and gritting her teeth, this is

:31:23.:31:27.

the battle for second that she has to win to guarantee selection, Laura

:31:28.:31:32.

Muir into home straight and looking for the victory. Behind the race on

:31:33.:31:37.

and Laura Weightman as Charlene Thomas, spice, she tries to dig

:31:38.:31:42.

again, Laura Muir takes the victory, Laura Weightman comes again and take

:31:43.:31:47.

second place. It was the top two we expected but not perhaps in the

:31:48.:31:51.

fashion we thought, Laura Muir a long way clear, the British champion

:31:52.:31:55.

once again and perhaps she is a class apart from the rest in these

:31:56.:32:00.

terms. What an effort from Laura Weightman to get second place

:32:01.:32:03.

because it looked for all the world that Charlene Thomas had it coming

:32:04.:32:09.

down the home straight. One thing you can always say is she will never

:32:10.:32:12.

give up on it and she knew she needed to to get on the plane for

:32:13.:32:17.

Rio and to keep everything on track. She was able to fight back, maybe

:32:18.:32:20.

she paid the price for being the person to lead the group. Maybe she

:32:21.:32:26.

was not feeling good today but certainly someone who was feeling

:32:27.:32:28.

good was Laura Muir who showed that this issue has taken another big set

:32:29.:32:43.

forward to get on top. You can see there she still wants to get a quick

:32:44.:32:46.

Time out of the lab, indeed she ran a 60 flat in the last lap but the

:32:47.:32:52.

big battle is going on behind her. In an third. Laura Weightman casinos

:32:53.:32:59.

she is behind, Charlene Thomas maybe went a bit too early or maybe Laura

:33:00.:33:04.

Weightman wanted it a bit more. That was a great race and a great race

:33:05.:33:11.

from Laura Muir and behind her. She is world-class Laura Muir and she

:33:12.:33:19.

has a domestic victory again. Look at the effort behind to take second

:33:20.:33:24.

place. The two Laura's are down with Phil. Both are clearly frilled to be

:33:25.:33:31.

going to Rio, they tremendous performance Laura. Thank you I just

:33:32.:33:42.

wanted that today to qualify. A show of intent that you're not just here

:33:43.:33:45.

to win a title bids you out in Rio to do business there and maybe get

:33:46.:33:51.

on the podium? Definitely. I want to stay in the top five, I wanted to

:33:52.:33:59.

get to Rio and I've done today. Wonderful to see you continue to

:34:00.:34:02.

develop and the same for you Laura, one thing we know about you the guts

:34:03.:34:08.

and the determination. The goal here today was to get top two to go to my

:34:09.:34:13.

second Olympic Games, an incredible achievement and me and Laura will

:34:14.:34:17.

hopefully go there, perform well for Great Britain and I'm excited for

:34:18.:34:21.

the championships now. Congratulations to you both, we will

:34:22.:34:22.

see you in Rio. A look back at the best throw of the

:34:23.:34:35.

shot put this afternoon. 16 metres .60 seven. Not able to break the 70

:34:36.:34:45.

metre mark. Equal with Angela Littlewood, there is a name from the

:34:46.:34:51.

past. Rachel Wallader, successful defence of the UK title. Didn't go

:34:52.:34:58.

over 70 but didn't need to. A comfortable victory there ahead of

:34:59.:35:01.

Sophie Mckinna. You may have been with us earlier

:35:02.:35:16.

for the women's javelin, his confirmation of the result. Lifetime

:35:17.:35:25.

best for Joe Blair. Goldie Sayers settles for second place.

:35:26.:35:36.

A good race in the women's 1500, the dominant performance, Laura Muir but

:35:37.:35:43.

what efforts by Laura Weightman for second place ahead of Charlene

:35:44.:35:48.

Thomas, to guarantee a place to Rio. Her coach will be reasonably happy.

:35:49.:35:54.

Woman's 5000 metre coming up next but first a bit of reflection with

:35:55.:36:00.

Paula Radcliffe. A statement of intent from Laura Muir, smashed it.

:36:01.:36:08.

Laura Muir knows she's great shape this year, she ran a very quick mile

:36:09.:36:14.

time in Oslo with a four-minute fact that 1500 splits. She knows she is

:36:15.:36:22.

in good shape and could go out and control it and what she showed there

:36:23.:36:25.

was the change of pace over the last lap which Laura Weightman is not

:36:26.:36:29.

able to live with just yet. Fought very hard to hold onto second place

:36:30.:36:34.

and keep the spot for Rio. Isn't Laura Muir a real contender in Rio?

:36:35.:36:41.

I think so. It'll be a tough race. It always is that she showed last

:36:42.:36:45.

year she finished fifth and it was the manner she did, the frustration

:36:46.:36:51.

she showed not being able to get into the medals that has kept a

:36:52.:36:54.

fired up working hard over the winter. If both produced their best

:36:55.:37:01.

in the final in Rio than they are both in with a shout there. Next up

:37:02.:37:08.

the women's 5000 metres. Have you recovered after that last hundred

:37:09.:37:15.

metres? Never in doubt. I would rather commentate on the race and

:37:16.:37:19.

watch it but anyway those to have cemented their place in the team for

:37:20.:37:24.

Rio. We have another Laura who may have a chance in this one, Laura

:37:25.:37:30.

Whittle. As indeed does Stephanie 12. -- 12. There are others who may

:37:31.:37:42.

hope they can get closer -- Twell. No Joe Pavey today, we are told she

:37:43.:37:45.

would try to make the 10,000 metre team. Just missed the qualifying

:37:46.:37:50.

mark in America recently. No Jess Carlson either. A leash McColgan

:37:51.:38:00.

moving from the steeplechase, did very well so far, will be looking to

:38:01.:38:06.

come into the top two here. A big field. It'll be interesting if you

:38:07.:38:14.

can see Laura Whittle in the second line back there, two in from the

:38:15.:38:21.

side next to Charlotte Arter. Whether Laura Whittle here can

:38:22.:38:25.

reproduce the sort of race that she ran to run a very good 15 minutes

:38:26.:38:31.

eight seconds in her personal best. Run at the Commonwealth Games and

:38:32.:38:34.

would love to be an Olympic team no doubt. A lot of people in the

:38:35.:38:39.

stadium tonight will be hoping that this lady, Steph Twell can underline

:38:40.:38:46.

the return to form which we have been enjoying. Almost got close to

:38:47.:38:55.

an 800 best a few years ago, the terrible injury to her ankle, she

:38:56.:39:01.

struggled over the last four years or so to get back and finally. 12

:39:02.:39:09.

and a half laps of the track, the qualifying time which I don't think

:39:10.:39:18.

will come into much reckoning today is 15.24 exactly that it is between

:39:19.:39:28.

Eilish, Twell and Laura. And it's like the mens rea says though to

:39:29.:39:34.

some extent although there was a real battle yesterday, here there

:39:35.:39:41.

are three qualifiers Paula so if you are Laura, if you are Twell or

:39:42.:39:46.

Steph, Steph will think she can out kick so she might not be too

:39:47.:39:53.

bothered so what do the others do? Maybe see how it settles over the

:39:54.:39:56.

first couple of laps and aside from there, no reason to make any

:39:57.:40:00.

stunning move over the first two laps. If it carries on slide they

:40:01.:40:07.

would need to react to that Bert we are enjoying the return of Steph

:40:08.:40:11.

Twell, what has been great for her is that was a PB on 800 metres and

:40:12.:40:18.

the first she has set since 2010 so it shows she is back and back with

:40:19.:40:22.

speed as well which is what she was struggling to get the most after the

:40:23.:40:27.

injury. Why she moved towards the five K in the first place away from

:40:28.:40:32.

1500. Now she is getting that pays comeback a bit. She is really

:40:33.:40:39.

enjoying that and that is a boost of confidence giving her more options

:40:40.:40:44.

in a race situation. I would look to Laura Whittle and then Eilish before

:40:45.:40:54.

Steph. Early pace as expected, it is a bit breezy as well although it

:40:55.:40:59.

seems to have dropped a little. The feathers in the hair of the

:41:00.:41:02.

Brazilian dancers giving out the medals wafting in the wind on the

:41:03.:41:08.

home straight. That is why you are looking at the dancers.

:41:09.:41:11.

LAUGHING You have to look somewhere to test

:41:12.:41:15.

the strength of the wind. Emma Clayton on the inside leading

:41:16.:41:28.

through. A good group in Leeds. Pleased to see Emma Clayton there

:41:29.:41:31.

who is more of a cross-country race on the track here today. One of two

:41:32.:41:35.

others in a similar position I guess. No Joe, Jess Carlson, at one

:41:36.:41:46.

point this would look like a really tasty 5000 but it is still in a good

:41:47.:41:50.

one in the sense of these three but only two will be able to definitely

:41:51.:41:54.

go. In terms of anyone else selection wise, is there anyone you

:41:55.:41:59.

think could possibly come into the reckoning? It is difficult to see

:42:00.:42:05.

when these three had turned out today with the two qualifying times

:42:06.:42:09.

that they have essentially done everything has to have them and

:42:10.:42:12.

there are only 15 days before it closes so to see someone come out

:42:13.:42:18.

and run to qualifying times in that period is a tough asp which is why

:42:19.:42:23.

we have seen Joe Pavey make the decision, she missed out on the

:42:24.:42:26.

first and realise she cannot make the 2/5000 metre so maybe she can

:42:27.:42:30.

get one tenth thousand metres and stands a bit more of a chance.

:42:31.:42:44.

Men's high jump one of the eagerly anticipated field events. 2.23 that

:42:45.:42:57.

is. A successful clearance at all the previous heights. As you can see

:42:58.:43:02.

their a good start from his campaign. Chris Baker 2.36 indoors,

:43:03.:43:12.

that equals his best outdoors, sorry to point to six best outdoors. --

:43:13.:43:22.

2.2 six. In second place if he gets it this time. That's better. Olympic

:43:23.:43:30.

bronze medallist from London 2012, world indoor silver from this year.

:43:31.:43:38.

He has the full set with the bronze. Let's have a look at this. Robbie

:43:39.:43:46.

Grabarz. Much better. Olympic bronze medal European gold, but can anyone

:43:47.:43:56.

else join those two? They are the only qualifiers so far. Allan Smith.

:43:57.:44:06.

Joined him at 2.2 three. Just to market the card it is 2.2 nine. Some

:44:07.:44:15.

work to be done but a successful clearance at the last time of Askin

:44:16.:44:21.

for Allan Smith. 23 years of age, two centimetres shy of his season 's

:44:22.:44:23.

best. Brilliant clearance for Chris Kandu.

:44:24.:44:40.

20 years of age. Absolutely showing some competitive edge there. His

:44:41.:44:48.

event continues. Four many clear at 2.23. Chris Kandu, the last of those

:44:49.:44:56.

four. He is pleased with that isn't he.

:44:57.:45:05.

He had not missed too much in the women's 5000 -- you have not missed.

:45:06.:45:14.

The pace has been pretty slow and if you want the kind of benchmark, the

:45:15.:45:17.

first mile was 5.40. It wasn't as windy as it was today

:45:18.:45:32.

and we have not seen anybody really make any moves just yet. You can see

:45:33.:45:37.

Eilish just moving gradually into fourth place just to get a bit

:45:38.:45:42.

nearer to the front. Twell sitting on the shoulder of Laura Whittle,

:45:43.:45:48.

they are the ones to watch but we just need to finish in the first

:45:49.:45:53.

three, no other reason to get moving quickly yet. 78 second lap so they

:45:54.:46:07.

have gone through a bit quicker. As Paula said, the main contenders here

:46:08.:46:15.

the ones in order once you have the opportunity to get their rear

:46:16.:46:16.

selection. If anything, is it getting any

:46:17.:46:42.

slower, Paula? The better athletes, sometimes the slower you run, we

:46:43.:46:47.

were talking about it earlier with Lennie Waite 's, the slower you run,

:46:48.:46:53.

it makes you feel worse. When you are used to running at a certain

:46:54.:47:01.

pace, you are trained to run at that pace, and then when you run slower,

:47:02.:47:09.

it is hard to raise the pace and respond when someone who has

:47:10.:47:13.

practised that a bit more and can quickly increase the pace and do

:47:14.:47:18.

damage. Eilish McColgan is saying, is anybody else going to pick this

:47:19.:47:25.

up a bit cos it is a little bit too slow. We have our tradition is

:47:26.:47:42.

working on this race. It has got slower. That was 80 seconds. They

:47:43.:47:50.

are all bunching up. Emma Clayton in front. Laura Whittle, for the first

:47:51.:47:56.

time looks like she might be interested with six laps to go. At

:47:57.:48:01.

least moving it along a little bit. That's the first thing, extricate

:48:02.:48:07.

yourself from everybody else. For those of finishing in the top two is

:48:08.:48:14.

a special occasion, we go back to Elliot Giles in the 200. Very slow

:48:15.:48:19.

race, you are racing to coalfields to get in the top two. I would be

:48:20.:48:28.

very surprised to see Laura Whittle to let this go with five laps to go

:48:29.:48:34.

before she increases the pace here. Back to the high jump. Robbie

:48:35.:48:40.

Grabarz, preparing himself. As to take the lead. It stays on! It was

:48:41.:48:52.

precarious. He gave it a wallop. It stays put. It is a good attempt.

:48:53.:49:03.

First man we have seen go clear at 2.26. Let's have another look. Gives

:49:04.:49:15.

it a wallop. But that is OK. It is a valid jump. Chris Baker, same

:49:16.:49:24.

height, third attempt. Flat, but he has got it. Two is filed -- two

:49:25.:49:35.

files, followed by the narrowest of clearances. Season's best. Good jump

:49:36.:49:46.

for him. Takes after a long way away. It is a good attempt. Very

:49:47.:49:52.

good for Chris Baker, looking to recapture the form we saw in doors.

:49:53.:50:01.

In second place. Behind Robbie Grabarz, courtesy of his second

:50:02.:50:07.

attempt and Chris Baker's third. Neither could go any higher. It was

:50:08.:50:17.

a successful defence of his title from Robbie Grabarz, and assured of

:50:18.:50:22.

a place in Team GB for the Olympic Games.

:50:23.:50:29.

Back with the 5,000m. Still no change. Still the pace, very gentle.

:50:30.:50:38.

Emma Clayton, who has been given the job, I would hardly say pacemaking,

:50:39.:50:44.

she has just been running in front. In second place. Stephanie Twell,

:50:45.:50:53.

keeping an eye on the other two. I am sure she will just wait. Laura

:50:54.:51:01.

Whittle has suddenly lost her position. Katrina Wootton on the

:51:02.:51:10.

inside. Paula, getting nervous for them with three and a half laps to

:51:11.:51:18.

go? It is still messy and it gives the potential for people to get

:51:19.:51:23.

clipped and go down. People are worrying about staying in the right

:51:24.:51:26.

position and maintaining that. Stephanie Twell, her top time goes

:51:27.:51:32.

back a few years. She knows she should be able to react quicker than

:51:33.:51:40.

them. But when it comes down to it, they have run at a very slow pace.

:51:41.:51:47.

It is lifting now. They are worried about it a little bit. Emma Clayton

:51:48.:51:53.

has been a windbreaker but the last how many laps. Pretty much, three

:51:54.:51:59.

laps to go. Laura Whittle, less comfortable looking. Eilish

:52:00.:52:03.

McColgan, people might have watched a lot over the years, she is quicker

:52:04.:52:10.

than a lot of people might think. She can sprint and I think herself,

:52:11.:52:16.

she has a fair bit of confidence in her ability to add kick Laura

:52:17.:52:21.

Whittle, if not Stephanie Twell. We are heading for a bit of a burn up

:52:22.:52:29.

in the last 500, 600 metres. The question is who breaks first. Laura

:52:30.:52:33.

Whittle has shown she doesn't intend to make this an early run for home.

:52:34.:52:38.

Everyone is pushing and shoving for a bit opposition. Laura Whittle is

:52:39.:52:45.

still not responding. Lauren Deadman trying to come round the outside.

:52:46.:52:51.

What was good to see was the experience of Stephanie Twell, who

:52:52.:52:55.

reacted at the right time. She sensed that Laura Dedman was coming

:52:56.:52:59.

round the outside and she maintained herself in pole position. Laura

:53:00.:53:05.

Whittle has decided, I need to make a move. Something needs to start to

:53:06.:53:11.

get moving. The only danger is, looking at the styles, because

:53:12.:53:15.

Eilish McColgan is so tall, that is when the danger comes. The length of

:53:16.:53:21.

her stride, she will get clipped. She is better off running wide out

:53:22.:53:25.

of trouble on the outside. We have just seen the first three moving

:53:26.:53:31.

away without them even starting to make a move. Elinor Kirk is still in

:53:32.:53:39.

the group as well. Stephanie Twell will be making sure nothing silly

:53:40.:53:46.

happens. They all know what they have to do. It is Stephanie Twell,

:53:47.:53:51.

Laura Whittle, Eilish McColgan, just beginning to move away. Only two up

:53:52.:53:58.

these three can be sure of Olympic selection after this race. Stephanie

:53:59.:54:04.

Twell, gradually moving away. Eilish McColgan might decide this is a race

:54:05.:54:09.

between myself and Laura Whittle per second. They come round with one lap

:54:10.:54:16.

to go. They hear the bell. Stephanie Twell with the lead. Laura Whittle

:54:17.:54:22.

picks it up again and Eilish McColgan is under pressure.

:54:23.:54:26.

Stephanie has this under control. Laura Whittle trying to find a bit

:54:27.:54:32.

more. She has the danger of Eilish McColgan sitting on her shoulder.

:54:33.:54:35.

They had this battle in Stamford earlier this year. It isn't over

:54:36.:54:42.

yet. Those long legs of Eilish McColgan. I said when she gets

:54:43.:54:47.

moving, she is pretty quick. Now she is chasing down Stephanie Twell. No

:54:48.:54:54.

response from Laura Whittle. Stephanie Twell won a medal in Delhi

:54:55.:55:01.

in the Commonwealth Games. Eilish McColgan is sensing she can run

:55:02.:55:05.

Stephanie Twell down. They are well clear of Laura Whittle. Stephanie

:55:06.:55:09.

Twell has saved a little bit extra. It is going to be victory, perhaps

:55:10.:55:15.

as expected, but Stephanie Twell. She will be the UK champion. Great

:55:16.:55:23.

return for her. She will be going to Rio, joined by Eilish McColgan. They

:55:24.:55:30.

did what they had to do. Laura Whittle, or want to lose out in

:55:31.:55:36.

terms of automatic selection. She finished third and as Paula said it

:55:37.:55:42.

might be good enough. She will have to wait because the other two now

:55:43.:55:48.

know. It is a great story the Stephanie Twell. People who don't

:55:49.:55:51.

know, horrendous injury when she broke her ankle. A plate and screws

:55:52.:55:57.

in her ankle, so many complications. A lot of people, I think a lot of

:55:58.:56:05.

athletes who went to what she went through, might have given up. But

:56:06.:56:11.

not Stephanie. When you are as good as she was in her earlier career,

:56:12.:56:18.

you might thing you would never get back to that. So well done. Louise

:56:19.:56:24.

Small, one of her team-mates, she knows what Stephanie has been

:56:25.:56:29.

through. A lot of girls on the team do know that. That is why she is

:56:30.:56:34.

such a popular athlete. She has rediscovered the form she had before

:56:35.:56:38.

the horrific injury. It wasn't just one break, there was a number of

:56:39.:56:45.

them. The amount of physiotherapy and getting the metal removed and to

:56:46.:56:51.

see her coming back and to be able to dominate in the way she has

:56:52.:56:57.

today, but also to know she has lifted herself and fought back to

:56:58.:57:01.

this level. She deserved that spot. So does Eilish McColgan, who has

:57:02.:57:05.

also come back from pretty bad ankle injuries. Yes, that is true. We talk

:57:06.:57:12.

about the journey athletes make. But this has been a long one of the

:57:13.:57:18.

Stephanie Twell to get back to poll on the British vest at the limpid

:57:19.:57:23.

games. Congratulations to her and to Eilish McColgan.

:57:24.:57:23.

injuries. Yes, that is true. We talk about the journey

:57:24.:57:23.

games. Congratulations to her and to Eilish McColgan. Stephanie Twell,

:57:24.:57:26.

after all you have been through. To make this must be special? I am

:57:27.:57:34.

here, marking myself as a senior. I feel ready for the competition at

:57:35.:57:38.

world level and going to the Olympics is exactly where I want to

:57:39.:57:45.

be. You are so confident the way you took business? I was quite tense,

:57:46.:57:49.

running through the race in my head a thousand times but then also

:57:50.:57:54.

trying not to think about it. I think I will sleep well tonight.

:57:55.:57:57.

Eilish, you have been through so much, switched events and now you

:57:58.:58:02.

are on the plane to Rio? We have been similar situations with

:58:03.:58:07.

surgery. I cannot explain how happy I am today. You think coming second

:58:08.:58:12.

in the race, you should disappointed, but behind Stephanie,

:58:13.:58:16.

she is world-class. I am going to start crying, I am so happy. It has

:58:17.:58:22.

been something I have thought about but so long. I didn't think I would

:58:23.:58:29.

be running busier, said the fact I am here and running as well as I

:58:30.:58:36.

have, I am over the moon. Can't believe I'm going to my second

:58:37.:58:38.

Olympic Games. Congratulations, well done. Action should be the women's

:58:39.:58:44.

400 metres. But we will look back to another event from yesterday which

:58:45.:58:49.

was a sister act that the women's 100-metre hurdles.

:58:50.:58:49.

have, I am over the moon. Can't believe I'm

:58:50.:58:50.

was a sister act that the women's 100-metre hurdles. There is the

:58:51.:58:54.

line-up. It is the lanes in the middle, the likes of Tiffany Porter,

:58:55.:58:58.

Lucy Hatton and Cindy Philly. Still holding onto the hope she can

:58:59.:59:04.

produce something special here. Tiffany Porter gets away well. It is

:59:05.:59:20.

Tiffany Porter. Big Sister winds. The two will join each other in the

:59:21.:59:28.

British Olympic team. 1292 with a following wind. No doubt, the two

:59:29.:59:37.

who have finished first and second. Was very close at the end. To me, it

:59:38.:59:51.

looks like it is Tiffany Porter. Close at the finish. Confirmation,

:59:52.:59:57.

it has been confirmed, it Tiffany Porter taking it just on the far

:59:58.:00:02.

side from her younger sister. But it was one at the start. Looking at

:00:03.:00:12.

lane six. So much work to do. Past Lucy Hatton. She is gaining and

:00:13.:00:19.

bearing down on her older sister all the time. Just looks to have more

:00:20.:00:23.

raw speed than Tiffany Porter. Now on track Perri shakes Drayton.

:00:24.:00:39.

Her new career has just gun but the results of the women 5000 festival.

:00:40.:00:41.

Dutchman just begun. It is the win for Twell. Laura

:00:42.:00:56.

Whittle will look at her 15.08 and hope selectors look favourably on

:00:57.:01:03.

that. A fascinating race and prospects, some very strong

:01:04.:01:14.

contenders and big stories here as well. We caught a glimpse of Perri

:01:15.:01:22.

shakes Drayton and Emily Diamond has been running very well, just outside

:01:23.:01:29.

her is Serin buddy Davis. Onuora on line six.

:01:30.:01:40.

Llanfair Nielsen on the outside, junior champion last year, perhaps a

:01:41.:01:47.

disappointing season because a huge potential in talent inside her merry

:01:48.:02:02.

at he key -- merry. The qualifying standard is 50.2 to, this year came

:02:03.:02:11.

at the Diamond league meeting when she finished just behind Davies.

:02:12.:02:23.

Here she is, really on the rise to anchor Britain to the bronze last

:02:24.:02:29.

year. Emily Diamond in the red first she has the quickest time in the

:02:30.:02:39.

field. 51.23, she has taken a big chunk off her personal best and

:02:40.:02:44.

there is Shakes-Drayton and we will listen to the applause. Who would've

:02:45.:02:50.

thought when she was close to the top of the world back in 2030 she

:02:51.:02:53.

would not run again until the start of this month and she is getting

:02:54.:03:03.

quick over 400 flat. Margaret Adderley

:03:04.:03:11.

dot-mac Kelly Massey had her first race at the end of May, that

:03:12.:03:16.

Achilles problem in the second half of last year at the start of this.

:03:17.:03:24.

Perry Shakes-Drayton is running so strong at the moment, so to Emily

:03:25.:03:27.

Diamond, very similar times this year. Onuora the defending champion

:03:28.:03:35.

those outside them both in six Bert Perry Shakes-Drayton, has only

:03:36.:03:46.

started racing again recently. Already showing the talent she had

:03:47.:03:48.

on the hurdles. A false start. I think it was right

:03:49.:04:09.

on the outside. Was it on the outside? I'm looking at the reaction

:04:10.:04:15.

times their nothing on that, everyone is out with 0.1 that is

:04:16.:04:23.

allowed. She got the best start and whether or not that was a false one

:04:24.:04:27.

we will have two Tansey, on the reaction we see, she looks a bit

:04:28.:04:31.

anxious doesn't chew. I hope not for the sake of the youngster, a huge

:04:32.:04:37.

talent. The chance to see a replay. We have had one or two problems with

:04:38.:04:43.

the starters equipment. There we go, just a green card. Everyone survives

:04:44.:04:52.

to race another day. A rare false starts, they do happen in 400 but

:04:53.:04:59.

not too often. We heard the helicopter buzzing around, I wonder

:05:00.:05:01.

if that disrupted things. Clearly away this time, though bit

:05:02.:05:30.

of a delay from Bundy-Davies Bert into running quickly getting the

:05:31.:05:33.

long stride going, good start as well from Margarets, she has gone up

:05:34.:05:39.

very quickly, perhaps burning herself out a little bit. Keeping

:05:40.:05:45.

good pace on the outside temp 1-macro. Emily Diamond outside,

:05:46.:05:57.

Perry Shakes-Drayton has gone. Her leg strap breaks down and she is

:05:58.:06:01.

out, sad to see. Emily Diamond leads them home and Perry Shakes-Drayton

:06:02.:06:09.

is there, Onuora trying to make ground. Perry Shakes-Drayton has no

:06:10.:06:14.

response and Emily Diamond comes home for the victory. 51.94, Diamond

:06:15.:06:23.

has the victory. Bundy-Davies couldn't get there but held on for

:06:24.:06:28.

second place. The celebrations for two women to Rio. So many stories in

:06:29.:06:33.

there, very sad to see Perry Shakes-Drayton breaking down and

:06:34.:06:40.

still smiling but still, we have seen her battling through the race

:06:41.:06:43.

in World Championships three years ago when her knee had gone and now

:06:44.:06:48.

hobbling around the track, we hope it is not too serious. Emily

:06:49.:06:55.

Diamond, out in front and it was at that point coming down the home

:06:56.:07:00.

straight where you thought with Onuora and Perry Shakes-Drayton not

:07:01.:07:04.

close behind that they would reel in but not, great victory for Emily

:07:05.:07:10.

Diamond. Another piece of great drama, Emily Diamond who missed most

:07:11.:07:14.

of last year with a hamstring injury, she really went up strongly,

:07:15.:07:21.

Perry Shakes-Drayton did not get out nor did Onuora and with those two

:07:22.:07:25.

chasing, once Perry Shakes-Drayton was out, she didn't look like she

:07:26.:07:28.

was running at all and look at this now. Emily Diamond is committed but

:07:29.:07:33.

will they run head down? No, she stays strong and is having a great

:07:34.:07:38.

season, she is seeing Rio in her eyes, running for the line and a

:07:39.:07:42.

good performance from her. Perry Shakes-Drayton gritted her teeth, if

:07:43.:07:53.

we see her head-on we will see her sensing Onuora decider, trying to go

:07:54.:07:56.

with Emily Diamond who looks more relaxed and then the battle for

:07:57.:08:01.

these three for those two spots, Perry Shakes-Drayton nails her spots

:08:02.:08:10.

as well. The big question now is Onuora, did she do enough to tell a

:08:11.:08:14.

selector she should get the third spot because Perry Shakes-Drayton is

:08:15.:08:19.

injured. That'll be for the selectors to decide that for today

:08:20.:08:27.

Sarah Bundy-Davies and Emily Diamond through. The elation is across the

:08:28.:08:35.

line, tell me about the moment? It has been a difficult 12 months, last

:08:36.:08:38.

year I was out with an injury, I moved coach and it has been a tough

:08:39.:08:44.

one. I live in Bath and my coach lives in Scotland so I've been

:08:45.:08:47.

working down with James Hillier in Bath and it has worked so well, I'm

:08:48.:08:53.

so happy, it has been such a long time coming and I wanted to, my aim

:08:54.:08:59.

of the year was to try to make the team and be a running athlete and

:09:00.:09:03.

then when I ran my PB in Germany I thought maybe I can get the

:09:04.:09:08.

individual and to win here today, such a bonus and I am ecstatic.

:09:09.:09:13.

Congratulations, Sarah you are fighting all the way holding off

:09:14.:09:24.

Anyika. I felt it was really windy and I felt Emily on me straightaway,

:09:25.:09:27.

she has a great 200 speed so I wanted to keep my head. I'm to light

:09:28.:09:32.

it to get a qualification for Rio, really happy. You can both take it

:09:33.:09:38.

in now, you are both on the plane to Rio.

:09:39.:09:45.

I saw the elation and the relief when she came across the line. Sarah

:09:46.:09:54.

Bundy-Davies and Emily Diamond heading to Brazil, interesting

:09:55.:09:59.

selections to come. The defending champion Anyika not there. The men's

:10:00.:10:16.

hammer. A big shout from Mark drive. Watching its sale Byeong-Hun An 70

:10:17.:10:21.

metres. 76 metre man. -- sale beyond. That is in the second round.

:10:22.:10:30.

Just two centimetres dry of the lead from Chris Bennett. Chris Bennett

:10:31.:10:37.

72.74, tight competition. Here is the favourite Nick Miller. Went on

:10:38.:10:44.

to become 11th there. The third round now. Another throw Byeong-Hun

:10:45.:10:55.

An 70 metres for Mick Miller. 72 point 21. -- another throw beyond 70

:10:56.:10:57.

metres. Chris Bennett is the man in form.

:10:58.:11:11.

Recently moved up into the top ten. That is a big throw. I said he was

:11:12.:11:23.

in form, 76.45 is best, this will be close to that. It is 75.67, that

:11:24.:11:30.

takes the lead. We have just had the women and now

:11:31.:11:42.

it is the turn of the men in the one that special.

:11:43.:11:53.

Three men again, sorry four men have the requisite to qualify. One of

:11:54.:12:05.

them Mark Rooney Babs after easing down in the home straight yesterday

:12:06.:12:09.

and Nigel Lavigne gets lane five because he won that semifinal --

:12:10.:12:17.

Levine. Rooney does not mind Lane eight but in this field, against his

:12:18.:12:23.

main British rivals he may have wanted to be in a better one. Dwayne

:12:24.:12:33.

Callan, Matt Hudson Smith. Another athletes returning from real injury

:12:34.:12:41.

problems. A local lad from Birchfield Harriers. Nigel Levine

:12:42.:12:48.

still going strong, he is still 27 were feels like he has been around a

:12:49.:12:53.

lot longer. Looked good in pushing Mark Rooney for the qualifiers. Last

:12:54.:12:58.

year this was the surprise of the championship, Yousif Bkheit, he

:12:59.:13:12.

stormed through to win 45.01. Jarrod Bowen, European team champion --

:13:13.:13:21.

Jarryd Dunn. And then Theo Campbell from the Bristol and West club, in

:13:22.:13:28.

lane two. PB said 46.02. On the other side, what a good week and

:13:29.:13:36.

they are having in terms of Championships, Jamie Bouley. --

:13:37.:13:51.

Bowie. Yousif Bkheit has two qualifying marks as those Dunn and a

:13:52.:14:01.

few others, their form has been not that brilliant but now is the

:14:02.:14:06.

opportunity, top two will definitely go, will be a third? That remains to

:14:07.:14:09.

be seen. Rooney really has to get out harder

:14:10.:14:22.

here and give the other something to look at, cannot take it too easy and

:14:23.:14:30.

he has come out hard, Yousif Bkheit running fast. Yousif Bkheit trying

:14:31.:14:36.

to stay in contact. All of the contenders still in with a great

:14:37.:14:42.

opportunity and Hudson Smith has the first 200 metres better. Yousif

:14:43.:14:47.

Bkheit tries to make inroads in lane for Bert Smith with Rooney and

:14:48.:14:53.

Yousif Bkheit contesting second place and stop Hudson Smith

:14:54.:14:57.

continues and it is Yousif Bkheit who looks like he will come through.

:14:58.:15:03.

Rooney nowhere. Hudson Smith wins its, Yousif Bkheit second. The top

:15:04.:15:12.

two win at their places Bert Hudson Smith running 44.88, a fantastic run

:15:13.:15:18.

from him and I think that performance, the hard running from

:15:19.:15:22.

him through 200, through 300, keeping it going all the way made

:15:23.:15:27.

the others look like they were in what is on every street, especially

:15:28.:15:30.

Rooney who I think must be ruling that semifinal run. Once Hudson

:15:31.:15:37.

Smith went past, he had nothing left and it was ten two who came through

:15:38.:15:41.

strongly. Rooney said he would like to go through. He will be hoping the

:15:42.:15:48.

selectors look on his past record I'm sure. Individually, this man is

:15:49.:15:52.

back. Not far off his personal best. Great approach. He went out much

:15:53.:16:11.

quicker than he did in the qualifying. Martyn Rooney with that

:16:12.:16:15.

amount to do. But Matthew Hudson Smith was in control. Great to see

:16:16.:16:20.

him coming back from those injuries because he is getting close to his

:16:21.:16:30.

best. The gap is clear. Martyn Rooney on the outside. Perhaps

:16:31.:16:35.

paying a little bit for not being a bit quicker and qualifying. But

:16:36.:16:42.

Matthew Hudson Smith wasn't labouring coming down the final

:16:43.:16:50.

stretch. He will be a contender for the finals in Rio. He is the flag

:16:51.:16:55.

bearer now for British men's 400 metre running. What a wonderful

:16:56.:16:59.

title to win. So much metre running. What a wonderful

:17:00.:17:02.

title to win. So much adulation down here, great to see the athletes

:17:03.:17:07.

celebrating and getting to the Olympic Games, you did it in style,

:17:08.:17:14.

tell me about that? I don't know how to react. The conditions were

:17:15.:17:20.

amazing. I felt good. I kicked on. We so what you could do last year,

:17:21.:17:25.

World Championship Kelhar now Olympic year and it is a great

:17:26.:17:30.

height again? We have been working on different things. I have got the

:17:31.:17:38.

standards. I am going to the Olympic Games. That is all that matters. One

:17:39.:17:48.

final word, what does it mean to make it to the Olympic Games? It is

:17:49.:17:56.

fitting I am starting my career again here. It means the world to

:17:57.:18:02.

me, in front of my home crowd. As usual, thanks to everybody that

:18:03.:18:06.

helped me through my journey. Thanks for this great top. Happy birthday

:18:07.:18:12.

to my brother. I will get your present tomorrow. He delivered a

:18:13.:18:16.

greater present right there. Thanks, guys. He has a pretty good excuse

:18:17.:18:21.

for not greater present right there. Thanks,

:18:22.:18:22.

guys. He has a pretty good excuse for not having got a present. Maybe

:18:23.:18:27.

that is good enough, his brother is going to the Olympic Games and what

:18:28.:18:33.

a performance. Great run in the Diamond League announcing he was

:18:34.:18:35.

back, but that was even better. Two great 400 metres, Emily Diamond

:18:36.:18:52.

winning willingly and then another level from Matthew Hudson Smith. It

:18:53.:18:58.

was a fantastic performance. Where we are, we saw them set off. They

:18:59.:19:06.

went up very fast, nobody was tentative in their performance. As

:19:07.:19:11.

soon as Matthew came to the crown of the bend, with 150 metres to go

:19:12.:19:19.

commie had the real sense of, I have got this. He started to push on and

:19:20.:19:27.

extend the stride length and keep his form. He crossed the line, and

:19:28.:19:33.

he is not breathing. That is the beauty of this young man, his stride

:19:34.:19:38.

is so quick. People don't realise how quickly he is moving. When you

:19:39.:19:42.

see the time of 44.88, he is shifting. Lots more to come

:19:43.:19:45.

including the women's 200 metres. They are just about getting ready.

:19:46.:19:49.

Dean Ashley Smith and Jodie Williams. Isn't it great. It is

:19:50.:19:55.

great we have so many wonderful women sprinting so well and so

:19:56.:20:01.

strongly. It will take around 22.7, 22.6 to take this title. Cold and

:20:02.:20:10.

drizzling a little bit, but it is world-class. The final of the

:20:11.:20:13.

women's 200 metres. This is going to be special. It is getting cooler and

:20:14.:20:26.

there is drizzle in the air. What can Dean Ashley Smith do here? She

:20:27.:20:29.

there is drizzle in the air. What can Dean Ashley Smith do here? She

:20:30.:20:33.

goes in lane six. A look at the final line-up. Gina Ashley Smith in

:20:34.:20:40.

lane six. She is there to be targeted because her main rivals are

:20:41.:21:00.

Bianca Williams, the bronze-medallist at the Commonwealth

:21:01.:21:16.

Games. 22 now. Shannon Hylton, one of two teenagers in this line-up.

:21:17.:21:28.

There is her twin sister. Dina Asher-Smith, targeting the 200

:21:29.:21:32.

metres and looking forward to Rio over this distance. Jodie Williams

:21:33.:21:39.

has always been a 200 metres specialist and was a

:21:40.:21:42.

silver-medallist in the Commonwealth Games and Europeans over this

:21:43.:21:47.

distance. Desiree Henry, was disappointed to finish third in the

:21:48.:21:53.

100 after looking so good in the heats. Can she make amends here?

:21:54.:22:01.

There is Ama Pipi, who studies in The States and has been running over

:22:02.:22:07.

there. 20 years old, but won her heat uncomfortably. Ella Barrett,

:22:08.:22:17.

just 18 years old. On the inside, the English under 23 champion and

:22:18.:22:24.

one recently in Bedford, Beth Dobbin.

:22:25.:22:35.

Conditions not ideal for sprinting. Damp in the air and the wind

:22:36.:22:44.

continues to blow a bit. We have seen a very quick time in the 400

:22:45.:22:50.

just run by Matthew Hudson Smith. What can they do here. Beth Dobbin

:22:51.:22:57.

in one, Ella Barrett in two, Ama Pipi in three. Desiree Henry in

:22:58.:23:04.

number four, Jodie Williams number five. Very clean me and quickly from

:23:05.:23:15.

Dina Asher-Smith. Desiree Henry is trying to keep up with her at the

:23:16.:23:24.

moment. Desiree Henry is just about getting back. She is there. These

:23:25.:23:28.

two side-by-side. Dina Asher-Smith just gets it. Desiree Henry and

:23:29.:23:35.

Jodie Williams. They were trading first position it seemed in the home

:23:36.:23:39.

straight. But Dina Asher-Smith, it looked, just held on for the

:23:40.:23:45.

victory. What a good race coming in as the favourite and delivering.

:23:46.:23:50.

Went through the first 100 so quickly, but Desiree Henry making up

:23:51.:23:56.

for her third place in the 100. So close to the victory, but I think

:23:57.:24:02.

that goes to Dina Asher-Smith. I think so, what a fantastic race.

:24:03.:24:07.

Desiree Henry proving that she is able to hold that technique when it

:24:08.:24:10.

matters. Came through really well. But the woman of the moment is Dina

:24:11.:24:16.

Asher-Smith. It has been confirmed. She took that race. It looks like

:24:17.:24:29.

she she was nervous at the start, but did enough. Photo finish. Dina

:24:30.:24:36.

Asher-Smith get it. Not a quick time, but we didn't think it would

:24:37.:24:41.

be in these conditions, which are deteriorating. But she did go out

:24:42.:24:45.

heart, Dina Asher-Smith. This is what we expected. I wonder if this

:24:46.:24:53.

lane draw would actually give something, show us something about

:24:54.:24:57.

the quality and the mental state of these athletes. We know Dina

:24:58.:25:03.

Asher-Smith goes out hard in the first 100 metres, but I wanted to

:25:04.:25:10.

see how would Desiree Henry respond. She does train, but she managed to

:25:11.:25:19.

hold the technique and we saw the beauty of the running action from

:25:20.:25:24.

Desiree Henry. She just starts to tip forward a little bit, but Dina

:25:25.:25:29.

Asher-Smith is straining for the line and willing it to come. Jodie

:25:30.:25:33.

Williams was perhaps moving quickest of all towards the end, but had to

:25:34.:25:41.

settle for third. It will be Dina Asher-Smith and Desiree Henry he

:25:42.:25:45.

will be guaranteed to go to the Olympics in this event. The Dina

:25:46.:25:48.

Asher-Smith is the champion. Desiree Henry, second place.

:25:49.:25:49.

Olympics in this event. The Dina Asher-Smith is the champion. Desiree

:25:50.:25:52.

Henry, second place. We are going to look and something else I do looked

:25:53.:25:57.

overwhelmed at the finish, so it sums up what this means to make it

:25:58.:26:05.

to Brazil? Since I was small, I have wanted to be an Olympian. Today, it

:26:06.:26:11.

didn't matter about the times, the crucial thing was getting in the top

:26:12.:26:16.

two and I am so emotional and I'm happy I will be an Olympian. You

:26:17.:26:22.

came so close in the 100, to nail it in the 200? Yesterday was a

:26:23.:26:28.

roller-coaster. It didn't go as well as I thought it would, but there is

:26:29.:26:36.

a chance for me to be in the Olympics, so it was about shaking

:26:37.:26:40.

myself off and coming back today and executing and getting my guaranteed

:26:41.:26:48.

spot. I am so glad I was able to do that because it has been really hard

:26:49.:26:55.

these last few weeks. Why am just so glad I'm going to the Olympics. You

:26:56.:27:01.

helped light the cauldron in 2012, now you will be running. I cannot

:27:02.:27:06.

believe it, it is a dream come true, ever since I was a kid I have wanted

:27:07.:27:15.

to do this. I want to thank my original coach at home, when I was

:27:16.:27:21.

16 John said I would be running. John, we have done it. Thank you.

:27:22.:27:27.

You have a lot of people to thank, more action to get to, enjoy the

:27:28.:27:30.

moment. Congratulations. John, we have done it. Thank you.

:27:31.:27:31.

You more action to get to, enjoy the

:27:32.:27:32.

moment. Congratulations. Women's long jump. She was brilliant last

:27:33.:27:44.

summer, Shara Proctor. Looks in control here. Extending her lead, it

:27:45.:27:55.

looks. Space on the board. 6.56, her best so far. 27 years of age now,

:27:56.:28:02.

Shara Proctor. Great contender for the medals in Rio. Not quite back to

:28:03.:28:10.

where she was last year. 6.65. That is her best so far.

:28:11.:28:19.

Jazmin Sawyers is having a great season so far. 6.42 her best, until

:28:20.:28:29.

now. Look at that! Jazmin Sawyers, 22 years of age. That not only might

:28:30.:28:40.

take the lead, but if it is beyond 6.70, it will book her place in the

:28:41.:28:46.

British team for the Olympic Games. Because she has one qualification

:28:47.:28:50.

already. If this is beyond 6.70, it will take the lead. Give Shara

:28:51.:28:55.

Proctor something to think about. But also, she knows. It is 6.70

:28:56.:29:06.

five. Jazmin Sawyers joins Shara Proctor, look at that, a lifetime

:29:07.:29:12.

best. Absolutely brilliant. Wonderful stuff. What a time to do

:29:13.:29:20.

it. Stefanie Reid, Paralympic silver-medallist. What a brilliant

:29:21.:29:29.

petition, she will be looking to respond and build on the tension,

:29:30.:29:35.

the nerves and the excitement down there. Slight following wind. 5.43,

:29:36.:29:42.

her best in the opening round. Lost a little bit on her landing

:29:43.:29:51.

possibly. This is the last round. It is by .40 three. No improvement.

:29:52.:29:58.

Eighth place, but good jumping from her.

:29:59.:30:08.

Dry. That is a big throw for Mark Dry. Their best so far in the

:30:09.:30:21.

previous round. Bennett entrance, Miller the favourite in third place.

:30:22.:30:32.

You can throw a hat over them. Mark Dry 74.92, it was a big throw but

:30:33.:30:42.

not enough. Second place though. There is confirmation that Chris

:30:43.:30:50.

Bennett is on a roll. No one had the Olympic qualifying of 77 metres yet

:30:51.:31:04.

though. So next on the track, just before that a result to tidy up.

:31:05.:31:17.

Women's long jump, confirmation of the win for Jasmine Sawyers. Shari

:31:18.:31:25.

Proctor unable to revive. Jasmine Sawyers, a gold for her, brilliant

:31:26.:31:26.

performance. And the result of the 200 just

:31:27.:31:38.

before we get towering in the 800, Gina Asha Smith taking it. -- Bina.

:31:39.:31:45.

Jody Williams will look for some generosity from the selectors but

:31:46.:31:49.

she look in good form. Now we are ready, they have been out

:31:50.:32:01.

there a few moments, the penultimate track race. 200 metres for the men

:32:02.:32:06.

too, after this and a couple of great races to finish off the

:32:07.:32:10.

British Championships. Five women with a chance. Rowena Cole, Barrow

:32:11.:32:19.

then Sharp, Leonard, Oskan-Clarke, Jenny Meadows, Walcott-Nolan, Alex

:32:20.:32:24.

Sandro Bell on the outside. She is having a great season. Alexandra

:32:25.:32:33.

Bell. Has a chance of going if she will find a top two finish and

:32:34.:32:36.

another qualifying time. Only has one so far. Walcott-Nolan,

:32:37.:32:46.

21-year-old from Luton. She will be hoping she can continue her

:32:47.:32:51.

improvement. Jenny Meadows float Serena yesterday in qualifying it

:32:52.:32:55.

has to be said. Is there one last hurrah for her. Oskan-Clarke, a

:32:56.:33:02.

finalist last year in Beijing and a brilliant series of races there.

:33:03.:33:09.

Looking to cement her place. Alison Leonard threw herself back in the

:33:10.:33:13.

reckoning with a dominant run in the heats, she has two qualifying marks

:33:14.:33:22.

as does Oskan-Clarke as does Jenny Meadows and sharp. The defending

:33:23.:33:32.

champion, Commonwealth silver medal, European silver medal in 2014, Leia

:33:33.:33:43.

Barrow in lane two. And then Rowena Cole on the inside.

:33:44.:33:48.

As ever all afternoon we have been saying straightforward enough, a

:33:49.:33:58.

great race where we have a whole series of permutations possible if

:33:59.:34:02.

you like. A strong event over the last few years for Britain, Jenny

:34:03.:34:07.

Meadows and her experience can it help? Then Lynsey Sharp of course.

:34:08.:34:14.

The one they will all be looking to because she is the class acts

:34:15.:34:17.

really, already Walcott-Nolan look so she will go out hard she may have

:34:18.:34:23.

watched what happened to Michael Rimmer, not that easy to choose

:34:24.:34:31.

between the five here. Tactics intriguing, we would normally expect

:34:32.:34:33.

to see Jenny Meadows attacking misfits we can see she has let

:34:34.:34:44.

Lynsey go through. A good group air who will be racing and there will

:34:45.:34:48.

not want to put a foot wrong. You could say possibly the likes of

:34:49.:34:53.

Leonard will be in difficulty on the last lap. She does have a tendency

:34:54.:34:59.

to give up but the others will fight, and they will have to because

:35:00.:35:04.

they are close today. Great to see Jenny back in the shape dominating.

:35:05.:35:10.

Walcott-Nolan controlling at the front. Slow through the first 400 so

:35:11.:35:19.

she will be hoping the change of pace for her will be there when she

:35:20.:35:25.

as for it. Bella moving on the outside, Jenny Meadows not making a

:35:26.:35:29.

move, she will want to do it sooner than later. They all have chances

:35:30.:35:35.

here. They are all there or thereabouts, three big names at the

:35:36.:35:38.

front with Leonard trying to squeeze through. It is Lynsey and

:35:39.:35:46.

Oskan-Clarke, only two will be guaranteed a spot. Lynsey Sharp look

:35:47.:35:53.

strong. Alison Leonard tries to push out Oskan-Clarke. Lynsey Sharp,

:35:54.:36:00.

attempt 1-macro, Alison Leonard on the inside and Lynsey Sharp

:36:01.:36:06.

struggling a little. Here comes Oskan-Clarke. She will get there,

:36:07.:36:13.

she wins it. Lynsey Sharp second and Alison Meadow third. -- Alison

:36:14.:36:19.

Leonard. Last year she really would show what ability she had and for

:36:20.:36:25.

her it has been a massive journey over the last few years and that you

:36:26.:36:30.

showed their when it comes to big races, championship races, she is

:36:31.:36:34.

very good at getting the best and then just biding her time and

:36:35.:36:41.

letting Lynsey to dictate. Didn't panic and was impressive in the home

:36:42.:36:46.

straight. Alison Leonard was there but have filly not have enough and

:36:47.:36:57.

the end stop. She showed the talent she has on rising to the big

:36:58.:37:01.

occasion when winning matters. She too big strides last year but issues

:37:02.:37:06.

again taking in her first national title and dominating. It wasn't as

:37:07.:37:11.

if Walcott-Nolan ran badly, she did everything right, she probably

:37:12.:37:16.

thought she would Betty pull away from Oskan-Clarke -- Lynsey. Once

:37:17.:37:22.

she sent she was gaining it gave her more confidence and momentum and she

:37:23.:37:27.

was able to read her in as Walcott-Nolan can sense and is

:37:28.:37:36.

starting to tense up. -- Lynsey. I'm sure Lynsey Sharp will be

:37:37.:37:39.

disappointed to lose her title but that'll be tempered by the fact she

:37:40.:37:44.

knows she is in Rio and Oskan-Clarke really strong in the home straight,

:37:45.:37:47.

Alison Leonard missing out, the closest of the others. I start with

:37:48.:37:55.

Lynsey, you will be in the Olympics yet again. I know you would want to

:37:56.:38:00.

defend a title again today but securing a place does that temper

:38:01.:38:06.

not winning the title? Obviously this weekend was about securing

:38:07.:38:09.

selection and I managed to do that so I'm happy. I would've to have

:38:10.:38:16.

defended the title but it was tied up a bit, it was hard when you know

:38:17.:38:21.

you're being chased down. It is much easier to chase them be chased the

:38:22.:38:26.

something I will work on. A second Olympics, the excitement starts

:38:27.:38:31.

building now I take it? Selection was more complicated last time so it

:38:32.:38:35.

is nice to have it all straightforward and now I can look

:38:36.:38:41.

forward to it. Congratulations. You are also on the plane to Rio well

:38:42.:38:46.

done, you must feel very proud right now? Very happy, I just wanted to

:38:47.:38:52.

secure my Olympic place that getting a win is amazing. I'm in really good

:38:53.:38:57.

shape and I have been rehearsing over the last couple of weeks about

:38:58.:39:01.

what I wanted to do and it has come out on top. Very happy. You have

:39:02.:39:07.

peaked perfectly for the World Championships and we know you can do

:39:08.:39:12.

so what about the prospects for Rio? I would like the same repeat

:39:13.:39:15.

performance or better, I know I can run faster and I'm gearing up try to

:39:16.:39:21.

peak at the right time. Congratulations on making it.

:39:22.:39:31.

The results again, the time is not relevant. Oskan-Clarke coming away

:39:32.:39:39.

much better than everybody else. Lynsey doing what she had to do,

:39:40.:39:44.

Alison Leonard is in tears down here finishing in third spot. One or two

:39:45.:39:49.

others might have seen that and for the race would be run differently

:39:50.:39:54.

but not Oskan-Clarke. Really is showing what a championship

:39:55.:39:59.

performer she is. The last 45 minutes also. Races have all been on

:40:00.:40:09.

the line, no one knows if they will go to Rio or not, no guarantees,

:40:10.:40:15.

these athletes came him not knowing and they have made selection lists,

:40:16.:40:20.

it is fantastic. Not knowing and not sure but at the same time like she

:40:21.:40:25.

just said it is getting mentally prepared and focused for the job in

:40:26.:40:29.

hand. She demonstrated that, she can do that and as you said, the other

:40:30.:40:34.

athletes, they have all performed really well. Andrew Pozzi included

:40:35.:40:40.

in the men's 110 meter hurdles, fantastic and raising their game

:40:41.:40:46.

when it counts. Lynsey leading it out there but Oskan-Clarke showed

:40:47.:40:49.

composure, that mental preparation came forward. For her she is still

:40:50.:40:55.

quite new getting into these were Championships, last year, doing what

:40:56.:41:01.

she needs to do and she is able to put herself in the right position,

:41:02.:41:05.

write speed which you need in these middle-distance races because they

:41:06.:41:09.

can bail your out when you need it. She kept a composure, didn't panic

:41:10.:41:16.

and got the job done. Jenny Meadows we can see the, for her towards the

:41:17.:41:22.

end of a career she would be hoping to go to Rio but it will not happen.

:41:23.:41:27.

Doesn't seem that way, she has been a great ambassador for women's

:41:28.:41:31.

middle distances, a great person to know, always positive with a smile,

:41:32.:41:34.

even when things have gone against her. And an athlete who has suffered

:41:35.:41:40.

at what we now know was state-sponsored Russian cheating. A

:41:41.:41:49.

bitter pill to swallow. No words can put it heal her scars and do write

:41:50.:41:56.

to the horrible things that have been done to her. One left, the

:41:57.:42:01.

men's 200 metres, the finale here and really quite something to look

:42:02.:42:12.

forward to. First of all this talk about Adam Gemili, a journey to come

:42:13.:42:16.

back here? That's right, not just physical scars but the mental

:42:17.:42:24.

barriers he has to overcome to trust that hamstring again and open up and

:42:25.:42:28.

let go in training and to pick the time to start. When do I start

:42:29.:42:34.

putting myself on the line again and he has maybe been a bit disappointed

:42:35.:42:38.

in what he has shown thus far but it is the long game he has to think

:42:39.:42:46.

about. In terms of the competition we expect to see Blake that he is

:42:47.:42:52.

injured, Hughes the training poll delay map partners of Bolt. He

:42:53.:43:01.

looked rusty, looks like yet done enough speed work. It's that cold

:43:02.:43:06.

that Denise is crying, I've just been watching it for. He does not

:43:07.:43:14.

look like he has been coming here in the best possible shape but he is a

:43:15.:43:17.

guide that knows how to races game, he has proved that it it is

:43:18.:43:24.

important that Gemili runs his own race and does not get drawn into the

:43:25.:43:28.

battle around him, this is about him. A quick word about Reece

:43:29.:43:36.

Prescod, an unlikely contender? I like the look of the sky, bags of

:43:37.:43:42.

potential. Let's see if he can hold his nerve.

:43:43.:43:47.

An intriguing race really. As we look down at Stalinist you mentioned

:43:48.:43:55.

Reece Prescod is a surprise package but it is Gemili and Danny Talbot

:43:56.:43:59.

who are in the best position. Dani Osvaldo about his business quietly

:44:00.:44:07.

-- Danny always. Zharnel Hughes was trying to keep people on how easy

:44:08.:44:11.

the qualification was I think but we shall now find out. Elliott Powell

:44:12.:44:16.

on the outside, the European junior semifinalist from last year at this

:44:17.:44:18.

event. Chris Clarke certainly if he is

:44:19.:44:31.

back, people thought he could really come on at 200 and 400 and move into

:44:32.:44:39.

wild rankings. Danny Talbot as I said, quietly goes about his

:44:40.:44:45.

business. He will be expecting to cement his place in the team. So

:44:46.:44:50.

does Zharnel Hughes but not this year. 20.62 is his best. He was

:44:51.:44:57.

maybe trying more than he was letting off but we need him. Adam

:44:58.:45:06.

Gemili all smiles as ever. He could do with not only coming in the top

:45:07.:45:12.

here but running under 20.5. Not the best conditions to do this but it

:45:13.:45:16.

would mean he would not have to worry about anything else.

:45:17.:45:33.

Reece Prescod, can he run a bit quicker here. Kyle Ennis. Then Leon

:45:34.:45:51.

Reid on the inside. All of the problems for Gemili of last year,

:45:52.:45:59.

hopefully behind him. He ran 20.55 in the qualifying heats. Just missed

:46:00.:46:07.

the second qualifying mark. It was 25.0 and maybe this is an

:46:08.:46:15.

opportunity for him? Hughes is in between Gemili and Danny Talbot. Top

:46:16.:46:23.

two only definitely go to Rio. 200-metre final. They get away

:46:24.:46:37.

cleanly. Zharnel Hughes is going well. Look at Gemili and Danny

:46:38.:46:46.

Talbot. Gemili coming away from Danny Talbot. Danny Talbot coming

:46:47.:46:52.

back. Gemili wins it. Double bonus. It is good enough. The two of them

:46:53.:46:59.

will go. Gemili dipped under the qualifying mark again. Danny Talbot

:47:00.:47:05.

came with a late surge. Not good enough in the end but as we

:47:06.:47:11.

suspected with Zharnel Hughes, he has two convince. We have Mitchell

:47:12.:47:16.

Blake and others who have two convince the selectors. These two

:47:17.:47:23.

are going, Gemili and Danny Talbot, definitely going. The question is,

:47:24.:47:27.

who will get the third spot? What did you make of that, Colin? Gemili,

:47:28.:47:35.

good pressure and just had enough in the end? The temperature has

:47:36.:47:40.

plummeted for these sprinters. You have got a hardy on. I am still in

:47:41.:47:47.

my shirt. But you are from the north-east, stronger than others

:47:48.:47:54.

Welsh. The next target was Danny Talbot. Danny kept a cool head. He

:47:55.:48:01.

is one of these meticulous athletes. He kept the rhythm going, which made

:48:02.:48:08.

him gain ground. Blog as we get close to the line. He was right

:48:09.:48:16.

there. Good run from both of them. It is all about getting into the

:48:17.:48:23.

team, making sure they are on the plane. Now they can do the

:48:24.:48:28.

polishing. They will go away and decide the races they need to do. It

:48:29.:48:35.

is good they have come to the top of their game. This is the field you

:48:36.:48:42.

want to be in, getting there, arriving, qualifying marks in these

:48:43.:48:44.

conditions. Good, competitive racing. It is looking great for

:48:45.:48:47.

these sprinters, Steve. Concentration from the two. Hughes,

:48:48.:48:52.

he lost third place to Reece Prescod. It doesn't do him any

:48:53.:49:01.

favours at all. Gemili and Danny Talbot, two happy men, I am sure.

:49:02.:49:15.

Job done. All day, we have been speaking to people who have made the

:49:16.:49:21.

plane to Rio. Two more happy men. Adam, such a close race? Danny has

:49:22.:49:29.

been running great this year. It was a very tough race. Came down to the

:49:30.:49:37.

wire and wasn't sure who won it. Glad to have got the victory and it

:49:38.:49:44.

is another stepping stone to Rio and we have more improvements to make to

:49:45.:49:51.

get more competitive with the other guys in the world, but it is a good

:49:52.:49:56.

start. Colin Jackson was saying, you have booked your place, it is about

:49:57.:50:03.

fine tuning now? Yes, we want to be competitive. It is good to come here

:50:04.:50:10.

and take our place and be the best in Britain. As a nation we have been

:50:11.:50:18.

getting better and that it is time to step up and win medals. What

:50:19.:50:22.

about the strength and depth across 100, 200 and the relay? The guys

:50:23.:50:27.

have stepped up. We are a new generation of sprinters coming

:50:28.:50:31.

through. We are hoping to go there and challenge for a medal,

:50:32.:50:36.

especially in the relay. We will do our best and hopefully we will come

:50:37.:50:41.

back with a medal. Congratulations. A lot of hard work goes in from a

:50:42.:50:46.

lot of people, volunteers and British athletics. Thanks to all of

:50:47.:50:51.

those guys. Well done, guys. Great pictures, we have seen so many happy

:50:52.:50:57.

athletes. There will be lots of disappointment for those who haven't

:50:58.:50:58.

made it. Some will have to disappointment for those who haven't

:50:59.:51:01.

made it. Some will have to gather themselves for another day and hope

:51:02.:51:05.

they can gain selection. There is still time. But for Adam Gemili and

:51:06.:51:12.

Danny Talbot, the one, two positions and also the time for Adam Gemili,

:51:13.:51:23.

impressive. Zharnel Hughes, has been totally unimpressive. They are

:51:24.:51:30.

guaranteed to go to Rio. The selectors have interesting decisions

:51:31.:51:33.

to make your wells will be there. Let's take a look. From gun to take

:51:34.:51:41.

from the 200 metres, a great start from Adam, Dennis? He did struggle

:51:42.:51:46.

towards the end, you would feel? I would say, yes. I cannot put into

:51:47.:51:53.

words how important it is for any athlete to get into the race routine

:51:54.:51:58.

and the race rhythm. He has missed it. His winter work would have been

:51:59.:52:04.

compromised. It is the speed endurance missing from the back end

:52:05.:52:11.

of his race. As he said, the job was done, qualification in the bag and

:52:12.:52:15.

good training to be done and competitions. The important thing to

:52:16.:52:19.

notice is the weather isn't great. You might enjoy it doing and

:52:20.:52:22.

long-distance run, but the sprinters are not enjoying it? They definitely

:52:23.:52:27.

don't, but they might have defaced these conditions anywhere in the

:52:28.:52:32.

championships and possibly Rio. They have to be able to perform up the

:52:33.:52:37.

right level whatever the conditions. Adam Jamelia guaranteed his place on

:52:38.:52:43.

the plane. Let's have a look at what has happened. These are the athletes

:52:44.:52:47.

who have made it and are guaranteed. The others will have to wait and

:52:48.:52:58.

see. Matthew Hudson Smith, one of the great performances over 400

:52:59.:53:06.

metres. Look at the women now. 22 women. Very strong on the female

:53:07.:53:16.

side? It is reflective of the last few years. British women have been

:53:17.:53:21.

getting stronger. They are making finals and collecting medals. There

:53:22.:53:25.

is a groundswell of the competitiveness. You know that good

:53:26.:53:28.

performances breed that competitiveness, which you need at

:53:29.:53:32.

the training venues and British Championships. One of the great

:53:33.:53:38.

performances was Jazmin Sawyers in the long jump. Great reaction to the

:53:39.:53:40.

personal performances was Jazmin Sawyers in

:53:41.:53:41.

the long jump. Great reaction to the personal best and afterwards she

:53:42.:53:44.

spoke to Phil Jones. What a performance, you needed to to pull

:53:45.:53:51.

out a performance of your life and you have done it. But can you

:53:52.:53:59.

believe it? No. But I am tentative to believe that I have done it and

:54:00.:54:07.

it counts and I am going to Rio. I can't believe it. The trials is a

:54:08.:54:13.

different experience, it is an Olympic year, different vibe about

:54:14.:54:16.

it and everyone knows how important it is. I have come here and

:54:17.:54:22.

delivered the gob with a lifetime best, I cannot be happier. You have

:54:23.:54:28.

done it at the youth Olympics, and also Commonwealth Games. But to get

:54:29.:54:34.

to the Olympic Games, it takes it up to a whole new level for you? The

:54:35.:54:41.

Olympics is the pinnacle and it is what you dream of. All the other

:54:42.:54:47.

things are amazing and I have loved my career up to now, but now I can

:54:48.:54:56.

say I am going to the elliptic games is awesome. We can see the joy.

:54:57.:55:01.

Congratulations and enjoy the experience.

:55:02.:55:02.

It wasn't the performance of the day, certainly the reaction. Steve,

:55:03.:55:06.

it was a lovely moment? It was brilliant. To see someone deliver a

:55:07.:55:09.

performance at an Olympic trials, she's such a popular athlete and a

:55:10.:55:15.

good character. To beat a world silver-medallist and get herself on

:55:16.:55:20.

the plane to Rio, it is great to watch. Overall, in terms of the

:55:21.:55:26.

field of hands, perhaps not the strongest? I was reflecting back

:55:27.:55:29.

with highlights, we are struggling a little bit. There was some decent

:55:30.:55:33.

stuff, nothing great. The men's hi Jim didn't turn into what we hoped

:55:34.:55:37.

with Robbie Grabarz and Chris Baker. In the hammer, it was competitive.

:55:38.:55:40.

Reflecting on the field events, maybe not as strong as we would

:55:41.:55:45.

like. Without Greg Rutherford, of course. Getting himself ready and

:55:46.:55:50.

was absent to the men's long jump. It has been a solid weekend without

:55:51.:55:56.

being incredible. A lot of the athletes have been here trying to

:55:57.:56:00.

qualify and one athlete guaranteed is Jessica Ennis-Hill. She has been

:56:01.:56:03.

performing at heptathlon since Beijing. Her performance, finishing

:56:04.:56:14.

off and 6.63 in the long jump. Denise Lewis, your reaction to that

:56:15.:56:19.

performance? Very good indeed. I have to say, for Jessica, it is an

:56:20.:56:30.

mark in the sand from which they can progress and accelerate her

:56:31.:56:34.

preparation into Rio. You would assume there is so much more she can

:56:35.:56:41.

put down in terms of speed. Weather conditions were not great. But it

:56:42.:56:46.

will give her a lot of peace in mind, having overcome injury

:56:47.:56:49.

problems. Now she can really put the foot down and motor. Steve, your

:56:50.:56:54.

reaction? It is exactly what she would have been looking for. The

:56:55.:57:02.

target was 67, which she has done. She can add another 100 points. If

:57:03.:57:08.

she does, I don't think there is anyone in the world who can touch

:57:09.:57:15.

6000 800 points. No one can beat her at that level. Paula, what was your

:57:16.:57:21.

performance of the day? It is tough. My heart, seeing Stephanie Twell

:57:22.:57:26.

coming back. But for the performance, Clarke in the 800 and

:57:27.:57:30.

Matthew Hudson Smith. performance, Clarke in the 800 and

:57:31.:57:32.

Matthew Hudson Smith. Let's tell you when the next athletics is coming up

:57:33.:57:39.

on the BBC. It is the anniversary games and we're back at the Olympic

:57:40.:57:45.

Stadium. We then moved to BBC Two at 8pm and on Saturday, coverage across

:57:46.:57:50.

the BBC during the afternoon. Then of course, it is Wimbledon. It

:57:51.:57:54.

starts tomorrow at 11:30am on BBC Two and five live. NSW 19 double

:57:55.:58:01.

provide us with some great moments, for sure. But is it from the Olympic

:58:02.:58:09.

trials. Thanks to you guys and in a world of sport, which can be pretty

:58:10.:58:16.

depressing, it has been great to be here to see the reaction of the

:58:17.:58:20.

athletes and also the disappointment when they haven't quite made it. We

:58:21.:58:26.

will be there in 40 days' time for the opening ceremony. Thanks for

:58:27.:58:28.

your company in Birmingham. Thanks for watching. That's what it means

:58:29.:58:37.

to him. He has just done what he does best. The world number one wins

:58:38.:58:43.

it very comfortably indeed. What does it have in store for us this

:58:44.:58:50.

year. That is a huge jump.

:58:51.:58:52.
