In just a week's time, the IAAF world Championships takes place here

:00:50.:00:57.

in the London Stadium. Many stars are here and ready to thing June

:00:58.:01:04.

preparations. Wimbledon takes a rest and the baton has been passed to

:01:05.:01:08.

track and field. Here are some of the stellar names that will

:01:09.:01:09.

entertain. What a line-up we have today. This

:01:10.:01:47.

year's anniversary games is about looking forward. This day is

:01:48.:01:51.

significant for the British athletes who have not yet booked their place

:01:52.:01:54.

on the World Championship team. They are running out of time to impress

:01:55.:02:00.

the selectors. Not only is it important to perform, they have to

:02:01.:02:04.

reach the qualifying standards as well. Welcome. If you have came over

:02:05.:02:09.

from BBC Two, thank you frosting with us. A fantastic afternoon

:02:10.:02:16.

ahead. It has been an hour. I will introduce you to the guests who will

:02:17.:02:20.

be talking you through. We are joined by Brendan Foster in the

:02:21.:02:25.

studio and Denise and Paula are still here. Today is D-Day for many

:02:26.:02:30.

athletes. There is something to prove themselves but the selectors

:02:31.:02:34.

looking on at this stage, it could not be more appropriate that this is

:02:35.:02:38.

the stadium they will perform in in London. Some big names will feel

:02:39.:02:43.

that today is the day to put their names on that list. Anybody for whom

:02:44.:02:56.

the door is open, to come to this amazingly fast track with a great

:02:57.:02:58.

crowd and able to visualise what they are aiming for in a couple of

:02:59.:03:01.

weeks, there's not a better place to do it. This is the best chance to

:03:02.:03:05.

achieve those times. The men's 800 metres was a mess last week in terms

:03:06.:03:10.

of selection. Athlete had times but did not get positions. Pick out some

:03:11.:03:15.

runners. The men's 800 metres as the most contentious. Andrew Osagie is

:03:16.:03:20.

the only person with a time other than Jake Wightman who is in the

:03:21.:03:25.

race today. He does not want to do it. Andrew finished that. If they

:03:26.:03:33.

run at the time today, they do get that automatic discretionary

:03:34.:03:36.

selection. Kyle Langford finished third and has a chance of running

:03:37.:03:40.

the time. Andrew Assad Jay Haas to prove himself. Lots of tidying up to

:03:41.:03:45.

do. We have seen Dina Asher-Smith who has been carrying and have -- an

:03:46.:03:51.

injury and is recovering. More work for her. Zharnel Hughes looked like

:03:52.:03:55.

he would be the man to beat when it comes to the final but did not

:03:56.:03:59.

finish in the top two. He does has the time. When you expect him to be

:04:00.:04:04.

secure, today is another chance to tell the selectors, I am your man.

:04:05.:04:08.

Do not leave any doubt in the mind of the selectors. Racing at this

:04:09.:04:14.

track shows you are in form. He is. He got tighter in the closing stages

:04:15.:04:18.

at the trials. He has to step up to date and proved he has earned a

:04:19.:04:23.

spot. It is the perfect opportunity. It could not be better. Have went

:04:24.:04:27.

through the trials and put themselves in positions and now it

:04:28.:04:32.

is the time that they have to run. The atmosphere is fantastic and be

:04:33.:04:35.

stadium looks brilliant. We have already seen some fantastic action.

:04:36.:04:41.

It is wonderful to be here today. The pressure and the enjoyment. Some

:04:42.:04:48.

athletes are here to show off and others to qualify. Read about some

:04:49.:04:51.

great moments so far. One of those that we would not expect, a world

:04:52.:04:58.

record, before we had lunch. That was down to Tom Bosworth. It is the

:04:59.:05:10.

one-mile walk. He came here today and smashed the British record and

:05:11.:05:14.

the world-record. And smashed his own goals as well. Coming into it

:05:15.:05:20.

quietly talking to the past couple of days, he was looking something in

:05:21.:05:25.

the 5.4 zero. He was able to get by .3 one. There are some great

:05:26.:05:32.

athletes in the stadium. Serve -- Sebastian Coe and Denise Lewis. I

:05:33.:05:38.

wonder how many of them can run a five and a half minute mile.

:05:39.:05:42.

Sebastian Coe than six minutes 40 mile and were satisfied with that

:05:43.:06:01.

recently. It is about 2.2 five. Our mathematics are not exact. It is a

:06:02.:06:06.

quick marathon time. It is about showcasing how quick that looks on

:06:07.:06:11.

the track. To see the technique in action. Lap after lap. It was

:06:12.:06:16.

stunning. Never mind a quick marathon, it was equipped mile. I

:06:17.:06:22.

would be very happy if I could run one mile as quickly as that. And

:06:23.:06:27.

then we had the emotional moment when David Weir performed on the

:06:28.:06:31.

track for the last time. It was more a procession than a raise. He was

:06:32.:06:35.

given the opportunity to say goodbye to the track. The crowd understood

:06:36.:06:41.

what he has given to Paralympic sport. Six time Olympic

:06:42.:06:44.

gold-medallist and seven time London Marathon winner. The campaign has

:06:45.:06:55.

started to getting knighted. Do not be rude on television. He has done

:06:56.:07:02.

an amazing job. You can see the emotion today. Thank you to UK

:07:03.:07:08.

athletics forgiving him the chance to perform in this stadium, in

:07:09.:07:14.

manner, brilliant. I am still trying to work out who could run a five and

:07:15.:07:21.

a half minute mile. We had so much more to look forward to this

:07:22.:07:25.

afternoon. Here is a look for you to mark your card. International

:07:26.:07:30.

performances, British performances. One of my favourites, Kendra

:07:31.:07:42.

Harrison is going next. The women's 800 metres is the best of British.

:07:43.:07:47.

The high jump competition is world-class. And we mentioned

:07:48.:07:54.

Zharnel Hughes trying to secure his spot from London. We have the men's

:07:55.:07:59.

hurdles. A great women's long jump competition. Dafne Schippers looked

:08:00.:08:08.

fantastic in the heats for the 100 metres. She is up against the

:08:09.:08:14.

world's best, Elaine Thompson. And the men's 800 beaters, Jake Wightman

:08:15.:08:19.

is in great form this season. It all looks like a Laura Muir might be

:08:20.:08:23.

going for that British mile record will stop and Mo Farah will come on

:08:24.:08:32.

after that. Let us get down to the track. Katarina Johnson-Thompson is

:08:33.:08:37.

going in the first of the hurdles heats. COMMENTATOR: She knows she is

:08:38.:08:43.

outclassed in terms of the hurdles today but she wants to put herself

:08:44.:08:49.

in this position. Next month, she will be lining up in the stadium in

:08:50.:08:52.

her first event in the heptathlon with all of the pressure and she

:08:53.:08:56.

will need to get it right, this very technical event. This is a great

:08:57.:09:04.

rehearsal for her today. She is up against some of the best in the

:09:05.:09:13.

world. The first of two eats. We will see a woman in the past two has

:09:14.:09:20.

got it right in Kendra Harrison. She has also got it wrong in the past.

:09:21.:09:27.

Johnson-Thompson is now 29. A new personal best in the hurdles this

:09:28.:09:31.

year. That is the Belgian reckoned holder, just inside 13 seconds this

:09:32.:09:39.

season. Anne Zagre. This is such a strong event for the United States,

:09:40.:09:43.

Bridget Owens is not of the highest calibre. Kendra Harrison is at the

:09:44.:09:55.

very top. Broke the world record here last year. Did not realise she

:09:56.:09:58.

had done it initially because the timing was not quite right. Kristi

:09:59.:10:07.

Castlin is outside of, Olympics bronze-medallist but only finished

:10:08.:10:10.

in sixth place and the American trials. Jasmin Stowers ran 12.47 but

:10:11.:10:21.

only was in eighth place at the trials. And Nadine Visser, and the

:10:22.:10:40.

Austrian Stephanie Bendrat. Three to go through automatically in this

:10:41.:10:44.

first of two hit in the women's 100-metre hurdles. Kendra Harrison

:10:45.:10:49.

has not lost a race at any distance since finishing sixth in the US

:10:50.:10:56.

trials about this time last year. 19 successive victories over hurdles

:10:57.:10:57.

and 200 metres. She missed out on the Olympics which

:10:58.:11:08.

was the one, two, three for the United States.

:11:09.:11:38.

It is Kendra Harrison that takes it. The time is 12.40 eight. It is

:11:39.:11:46.

quick. It is such a quick time and made to look very easy. There are

:11:47.:11:58.

some very good athletes that she will have to face. Kendra Harrison

:11:59.:12:03.

on her day is a class apart. You are right, Andrew. She showed that to

:12:04.:12:08.

us, loud and clear. If anybody was doubting who is the favourite for

:12:09.:12:12.

the world title on this very track... You do not have to look any

:12:13.:12:18.

further than this young lady. I shaped -- I think she is technically

:12:19.:12:22.

better this year. More aggressive over the barriers and more

:12:23.:12:28.

controlled with her running. It will not surprise me if she beats that

:12:29.:12:37.

world-record. Look at Kendra Harrison Move over the barriers. Her

:12:38.:12:46.

world-record is 12.20 seconds. Normally in the women's hurdles, we

:12:47.:12:51.

would expect a tight finish but not when this junk lady is in the field.

:12:52.:12:55.

But she is head and shoulders above everybody. -- this young lady.

:12:56.:13:02.

Technically she is so effective over these barriers. She flicks per lead

:13:03.:13:06.

leg. She delays it long enough to get a good rhythm with her trail

:13:07.:13:10.

leg. She pulls it strongly in front of her and does not waste any time

:13:11.:13:16.

over the barrier whatsoever. She drives controlled aggression. This

:13:17.:13:22.

is just the heats. She safely made her way through the US trials this

:13:23.:13:27.

year so she will be in this stadium in three weeks' time and she will be

:13:28.:13:32.

certainly in the final later this afternoon. The gap between first and

:13:33.:13:40.

second. Johnson-Thompson was down at 13.45 seconds. ODE: That final is

:13:41.:13:47.

later born. She is a joy to watch. Let us get back out. The field is of

:13:48.:14:03.

high quality. COMMENTATOR: Perfect conditions for the field events.

:14:04.:14:08.

Especially the pole vault. Holly Bradshaw is under some pressure. She

:14:09.:14:13.

needs this to stay alive. Last attempt. It was not even close.

:14:14.:14:22.

Holly Bradshaw had three fouls. That look on her phase tells it all. I

:14:23.:14:28.

think it was a long step at the end, decelerating into the box are not

:14:29.:14:31.

able to put the energy and force into the pole. It is unfortunate but

:14:32.:14:38.

this junk lady is concentrating over the next 3-4 weeks about how to get

:14:39.:14:43.

into shape for the world Championships. Disappointing third

:14:44.:14:46.

time failure for Holly Bradshaw and knees to consolidate her

:14:47.:14:51.

early-season form. She has jumped 4.80 metres. Time for the discus.

:14:52.:15:02.

Last round. Daniel Stahl chasing down the lead of Fedrick Dacres.

:15:03.:15:13.

Great clash between these two. Showing us his guns. Good work,

:15:14.:15:21.

Daniel. I think it is close. 66.66 metres is the lead. Got his right

:15:22.:15:26.

hip onto that. De Laet as his arm comes through. His hip goes on and

:15:27.:15:31.

his armed followers. He is in great form. 71 metres this year. 66.73

:15:32.:15:38.

metres. That is a victory. Switzerland, Nicole Buchler goes

:15:39.:15:58.

clear. The women's pole vault coming to a climax. We still have the

:15:59.:16:07.

climax to come. And Stefanidi is still involved. But Nicole Buchler

:16:08.:16:12.

is clear at this height. 4.73, a really solid clearance for Nicole

:16:13.:16:19.

Buchler. A season's best. She has jumped higher in the past. Fist pump

:16:20.:16:29.

from her. Heat two of the women's 100-metre hurdles. We saw Harrison

:16:30.:16:35.

looking so quick. What a day for Yasmin Miller of Derby, 22 years

:16:36.:16:42.

old, finished second last week in the European Championships. In great

:16:43.:16:48.

company. Raven Clay replaced Prandelli in the 100 metres earlier.

:16:49.:16:56.

Sally Pearson, good to see Sally back and running well. The season 's

:16:57.:17:02.

best was still what she set in Australia. I'm sure she would like

:17:03.:17:09.

to go quick here, and former Olympic champion, Megan Simmonds,

:17:10.:17:12.

23-year-old from Jamaica. A semifinalist last year in Rio.

:17:13.:17:16.

Christina Manning is having a cracking year. The strength in depth

:17:17.:17:20.

of American hurdling is almost legendary, but she got into the

:17:21.:17:25.

team. Finishing third in the championships. The final wasn't a

:17:26.:17:30.

fast affair. Nia Ali, as consistent as ever. Olympic silver-medallist.

:17:31.:17:40.

But it was Sharika Nelvis who won the other night in Lausanne amidst

:17:41.:17:47.

some confusion in the commentary box. Pedersen, the Norwegian having

:17:48.:17:52.

a very good year. 12.75 is her new personal best. Just to remind you,

:17:53.:18:02.

the top three will go through. They will join Harrison, Natalie

:18:03.:18:17.

Visser and Jasmin Stowers. The Americans will have four at the

:18:18.:18:22.

World Championships. Megan Simmonds gets a very good

:18:23.:18:57.

start. Pearson going well. Raven Clay hitting the first couple of

:18:58.:19:03.

hurdles. It will be very tight. Pearson hangs onto a top place.

:19:04.:19:10.

Wasn't the cleanest of races. Manning went well. Did Nia Ali miss

:19:11.:19:14.

out? It might have been quick enough, it looking at the time. Not

:19:15.:19:19.

as quick as the winner of the first heat. The others were further

:19:20.:19:24.

behind. Much closer between the top four here, I would imagine they will

:19:25.:19:30.

all go through. Manning, not somebody when you look at the names,

:19:31.:19:37.

but running consistently well. Not much between them. This is the kind

:19:38.:19:42.

of sprint hurdle race we really expect from the women's event. Very

:19:43.:19:45.

close. You could almost throw a blanket over them. Sally Pearson, I

:19:46.:19:51.

think she could have run a season's best. She will not be far off. I

:19:52.:19:55.

think she was getting too close to the hurdles and was struggling to

:19:56.:19:59.

hold it all together. But a season Park best is still pretty good. But

:20:00.:20:06.

how tight it is. You can why Kendra Harrison is so far ahead of

:20:07.:20:10.

everybody else. This is all about silver. She's lent, did one of your

:20:11.:20:18.

finishes, and Manning stood up across the line. Didn't matter, she

:20:19.:20:23.

knew she was in the top three. I think Manning will go through also.

:20:24.:20:31.

She is so far ahead, does it upset everybody else's rhythm? Kenny is so

:20:32.:20:35.

good, takes herself so far out of the game, that really she doesn't

:20:36.:20:39.

affect the others in any particular way. They can concentrate on the

:20:40.:20:43.

battle for the silver medals. That's really strange when you think of

:20:44.:20:46.

world-class running and world-class performances, that we can just give

:20:47.:20:49.

a gold medal to somebody. But we always know. There is a top three,

:20:50.:20:57.

Nia Ali will definitely qualify, as will Pedersen and Castlin from the

:20:58.:21:02.

first heat. They will be the nine in the final later. The women's pole

:21:03.:21:11.

vault. Holly Bradshaw out in sixth place. This is the Olympic champion

:21:12.:21:18.

Stefanidi. A second attempt at this height and comfortable. Showed her

:21:19.:21:26.

class there. Matches the clearance we saw from Nicole Buchler of

:21:27.:21:34.

Switzerland. Very consistent, Tony. You see the speed of her on the

:21:35.:21:38.

runway. It's all about developing the speed and being able to put the

:21:39.:21:43.

energy in. Much more compact and a much tighter sprinter and carries

:21:44.:21:50.

the speed into the poll. The Olympic champion setting out her stall in

:21:51.:21:53.

the World Championships, in this very stadium, just a few weeks to

:21:54.:22:00.

go. She will go in as favourite. The athletes taking part in the long

:22:01.:22:05.

jump. Dan Bramble, most notably among the Brits. Ashley Bryant, the

:22:06.:22:12.

multi-event is starting off. Also Henderson, jumping last. Here is

:22:13.:22:22.

Jeff Henderson. Round two. He had a foul in the first round. Fast on the

:22:23.:22:28.

approach. Over eight metres the Henderson. Fifth at the US trials

:22:29.:22:38.

with 8.28. How has he got away with that? Surely it's a foul. I think he

:22:39.:22:43.

nicked the plasticine. Did he get one pass the judges? He got the

:22:44.:22:50.

white flag. The way he accelerates halfway down the runway. This event

:22:51.:22:57.

is all about speed. And these guys are jumping into headwinds. Eight

:22:58.:23:06.

point 17 there. The women's 800 metres in the London stadium. Not a

:23:07.:23:11.

Diamond League event, but has one of the best in the world this year.

:23:12.:23:17.

Charlene Lipsey in lane six, the American has been very impressive.

:23:18.:23:27.

Alexandra Bell getting a run out. Oskan-Clarke, a great performer on

:23:28.:23:30.

big occasions. Fifth at Beijing. A great Strieder. Won the UK

:23:31.:23:36.

Championships in Birmingham last weekend. And there is Charlene

:23:37.:23:43.

Lipsey. She and Wilson might be the three to dominate this event. Adelle

:23:44.:23:54.

Tracey took second by a fraction, taking the second automatic

:23:55.:23:57.

qualifying place ahead of Lynsey Sharp. Sharing lane four, Laura

:23:58.:24:11.

Rosler was fourth last year. Esther Guerrero, the Spaniard. Lynsey

:24:12.:24:19.

Sharp, sixth place in Rio. Disappointed to miss out in Rio.

:24:20.:24:33.

Angela Petty, the New Zealander. Capable of quickly goes in lane two.

:24:34.:24:40.

Williams, initially more of a 400-metre runner. Not only Charlene

:24:41.:24:53.

Lipsey, might be a contender for a medal at the World Championships, we

:24:54.:25:01.

have a domestic battle between Oskan-Clarke, Lynsey Sharp and

:25:02.:25:04.

Adelle Tracey, who duelled it out in Birmingham last weekend.

:25:05.:25:12.

The women's 800 metres under way. Watch how Lynsey Sharp runs in lane

:25:13.:25:20.

three. She was happy to be boxed in in Lausanne because she felt she

:25:21.:25:25.

didn't have to waste energy, going wide and making up the extra metres.

:25:26.:25:29.

She likes to run pretty fast from the offset. Very different watching

:25:30.:25:36.

Laura Muir and Hassan running the 800 metres at Lausanne, doing it

:25:37.:25:40.

differently, starting slowly and then picking off athletes. Very much

:25:41.:25:47.

a proving ground for Lynsey Sharp, racing here today. She needs to get

:25:48.:25:51.

her confidence back and race well. She needs to put herself in the

:25:52.:25:56.

right position within the race. She's in a great race against

:25:57.:25:59.

Charlene Lipsey, who ran so well and so quickly in Lausanne. Lynsey Sharp

:26:00.:26:05.

putting herself wide in a lot of races. Finally last week she got

:26:06.:26:11.

into the box. The form is there, but not quite the confidence. Kendra

:26:12.:26:16.

Chambers, the pacemaker, did her job. As to go in 57 seconds. 57.2

:26:17.:26:26.

to, nobody really going with her. Oskan-Clarke always judges her races

:26:27.:26:34.

so well. It Charlene Lipsey just ahead of Lynsey Sharp and moving

:26:35.:26:38.

through is Esther Guerrero, the Spaniard on the outside. A good race

:26:39.:26:46.

here. It's bunched up. Guerrero getting elbowed and checks her

:26:47.:26:50.

stride. Lynsey Sharp in a good position but being tracked all the

:26:51.:26:55.

time by Oskan-Clarke. Charlene Lipsey, one of the two very strong

:26:56.:27:01.

Americans with Wilson this season. Lynsey Sharp digging in. Trying to

:27:02.:27:05.

stay on. Here comes Oskan-Clarke once again. Lipsey with the win.

:27:06.:27:17.

It's interesting, I'm sure Lynsey Sharp will get a nod for the team,

:27:18.:27:21.

but once again, Shelayna Oskan-Clarke tends to judge the

:27:22.:27:26.

races so well. We wonder if she can challenge the big three. Lynsey

:27:27.:27:33.

Sharp gave it everything and just fading in the final 20. I think

:27:34.:27:39.

Lynsey Sharp will be selected. We also doing Oskan-Clarke a disservice

:27:40.:27:42.

when we talk about Lynsey Sharp as number one. She was number one last

:27:43.:27:47.

year, but this year Shelayna Oskan-Clarke has taken her racing up

:27:48.:27:51.

a level and has consistently, through the indoor and outdoor

:27:52.:27:55.

season so far raced well and put herself in the right places in races

:27:56.:28:00.

raced strongly. Lynsey Sharp may be over committing a little bit and

:28:01.:28:03.

maybe not having enough elected in the tank in the closing straight to

:28:04.:28:08.

fight to the line. But Shelayna Oskan-Clarke did that and raced

:28:09.:28:11.

really well, underlining her selection going to the World

:28:12.:28:15.

Championships. I think Lynsey Sharp will join her. Adelle Tracey might

:28:16.:28:19.

be disappointed with her run today. She was impressive in the trials

:28:20.:28:23.

last week but less so today. A good finish as well. Hedda Hynne, the

:28:24.:28:32.

Norwegian, just leaking through the gap. The only thing missing for

:28:33.:28:38.

Oskan-Clarke our times. But a season's best, going under two

:28:39.:28:40.

minutes for the first time of the season.

:28:41.:28:50.

Alexandra Bell, eighth place and a season's best time. STUDIO: We have

:28:51.:29:01.

some music on now, the start of something a little unusual, but

:29:02.:29:06.

sadly not unusual in. This is the quartet of the 4x400 metres, who

:29:07.:29:11.

came fourth in the Beijing Olympics in 2008 and have since been upgraded

:29:12.:29:15.

to a bronze level because of the disqualification of Russia. Today

:29:16.:29:21.

they are going to be presented with that bronze medal. There is a

:29:22.:29:25.

protocol, the anthem will be played, and they will get to have their

:29:26.:29:29.

moment. Denise, it's been said by many who have been upgraded, you

:29:30.:29:37.

never get that moment back, do you? The moment in the stadium when the

:29:38.:29:41.

adrenaline has been pumping and you race yourself to a podium position.

:29:42.:29:47.

No, you don't. This is the crime of the drug cheats who rob athletes of

:29:48.:29:50.

their moment to shine. I remember this four by four. The boys worked

:29:51.:29:58.

hard. Martyn Rooney battled well. But today has to be bittersweet for

:29:59.:30:03.

the athletes. It is time that they get the recognition, but it isn't

:30:04.:30:04.

the same. 'S protocol them. There will be

:30:05.:30:25.

deeply Grantham the Phantom Manor JJ Watt usually get with a bronze

:30:26.:30:29.

medal. I wonder what is going through the mind, thinking back to

:30:30.:30:44.

that day? There is also sponsorship. It could have made changes to the

:30:45.:30:49.

decisions they make. This mob that will give them something. I think

:30:50.:30:57.

Martyn Rooney will still be slightly angry. It did hurt. Nine years ago.

:30:58.:31:06.

He has gone on to have a very good career since. Who knows? It is not

:31:07.:31:11.

just the funding and sponsorship, it is the belief. When people cheat and

:31:12.:31:17.

take that away from you there is very little you can see to

:31:18.:31:23.

compensate. It is about the training. These boys went to the

:31:24.:31:28.

competition believing they could win the medal out right on the day.

:31:29.:31:33.

Believing that all the training was coming to the fourth. To get

:31:34.:31:37.

everything on the track and to be robbed like that, it is tough. Some

:31:38.:31:44.

of the boys have moved on and have forged different careers. That

:31:45.:31:48.

moment in the stadium was everything. I mentioned Jessica

:31:49.:31:57.

Ennis Hill. Hor medal was upgraded. Andrew Steele getting his moment. We

:31:58.:32:04.

will see so many moments in London. The sport is working very hard, the

:32:05.:32:09.

new ethics committee to make sure in the future that we don't. To make

:32:10.:32:16.

sure that people's faith in the sport is restored. And that they can

:32:17.:32:22.

believe. It is so you have somewhere to go so your case is heard. When

:32:23.:32:27.

you are robbed, it does not take nine years to get your medal. You

:32:28.:32:32.

mentioned a list of names. Kelly subaltern. Far too many athletes if

:32:33.:32:40.

you do not mind me saying. They will enjoy this anthem. ANTHEM: God Save

:32:41.:32:50.

The Queen. APPLAUSE

:32:51.:33:36.

. Bingham, Rooney, steel and Tobin. The Beijing Olympics 4x400 metres

:33:37.:33:42.

relay. You can run but you cant hide. The sport will catch it. Let

:33:43.:33:47.

us get out on the track for some middle distance running. The 1500

:33:48.:33:52.

metres. Steve Cram will commentate. And will comment on what you are

:33:53.:33:59.

seeing. COMMENTATOR: I was chatting earlier on. There are two messages.

:34:00.:34:04.

The positive message about these guys getting the medal that they

:34:05.:34:10.

fully deserved. It is also about the moment that was robbed from them. We

:34:11.:34:14.

have to continue the battle to make sure we do not have the ceremonies

:34:15.:34:19.

in the future, as good as they are. Let us hope we have less of them in

:34:20.:34:24.

the future. Well done, guys. Good moment for them. Colin and I was

:34:25.:34:32.

seeing, should they have not came out in the 2008 kit? I still have

:34:33.:34:43.

got my 1980 tracksuit top. It looks so small hanging in the wardrobe. My

:34:44.:34:52.

1972 top is very tight. Good to see the guys. We have got the 1500

:34:53.:35:02.

metres. Let us talk about selection. Charlie Grice, Jake Wightman, George

:35:03.:35:10.

Kerevan Chris O'Hare. They went to the British trials. Charlie did not

:35:11.:35:17.

perform well. It looks like Jake Reichmann would get the third spot.

:35:18.:35:22.

Charlie Grice has elected not to race today and hopes the selectors

:35:23.:35:27.

can be trusted for what he has so far. Charlie does not have many

:35:28.:35:32.

options. Kristy Oatley is guaranteed a place. He ran very smartly last

:35:33.:35:38.

week. I was enjoying Chris Brunt. He had a good race against Mo Farah at

:35:39.:35:47.

the start of the season. There are two canyons. You could see Vincent

:35:48.:35:51.

Kibet. And the frustrations that Charlie would have from not running

:35:52.:35:59.

well last week. He is running in Switzerland on Tuesday. Filip

:36:00.:36:09.

Ingebrigtsen is part of the family that is taking over. The young

:36:10.:36:21.

Norwegian ran a junior steeplechase. Watch out for his name.

:36:22.:36:33.

Please stand up, gentlemen. Back to the Ryan -- back to the line. False

:36:34.:36:43.

start in the 1500 metres. Charlie Grice in the frustrating situation

:36:44.:36:46.

to find himself in. The selections will be named tomorrow.

:36:47.:36:59.

Despite having the qualifying time, it was great to see the four British

:37:00.:37:07.

men running at 1500 metres. To have such a competitive Championships.

:37:08.:37:11.

This is a competitive race here. For Chris O'Hare, this is the race he

:37:12.:37:14.

will face in the world Championships. He needs to conduct

:37:15.:37:20.

himself well. That is all he needs to do. Learn from this race and

:37:21.:37:24.

conduct himself. He can go out with no pressure on himself. Ideal for

:37:25.:37:31.

Charlie Grice, he is the leading 1500 metre runner. He is a finalist

:37:32.:37:35.

in the Olympic Games and Commonwealth Games. The progress

:37:36.:37:40.

that he has been enjoying. Charlie Grice is down the outside. But

:37:41.:37:44.

progress has been interrupted by the bad race he ran in the trials. He

:37:45.:37:48.

will be burning with desire to run well today. The men he is running

:37:49.:38:00.

next to, Chris O'Hare, he is relaxed. We thank the Chris O'Hare

:38:01.:38:04.

will take a chance and run fast here today. Charlie has slotted in behind

:38:05.:38:10.

his team-mate Chris O'Hare. Robbie Fitzgibbon is just further back, his

:38:11.:38:17.

training partner. Bethel Bergen is wanting to press this. Kibet ran

:38:18.:38:27.

well in Switzerland last night. Paul Marshall has got himself up. Three

:38:28.:38:31.

British athletes very much in the top six or seven. Filip Ingebrigtsen

:38:32.:38:38.

moving out. They come through 700 metres. They are heading something

:38:39.:38:45.

for the 3.35 as long as they do not slow to much. There are two Kenyan

:38:46.:38:52.

athletes in second and third. Big race between Chris O'Hear in fourth

:38:53.:38:55.

place and right behind him and tracking him sensibly, Charlie

:38:56.:39:02.

Grice. He moves ahead of Chris O'Hare. He is telling him he is good

:39:03.:39:06.

enough. I think he is good enough. He has not won as well this year as

:39:07.:39:10.

he has in the pass. This is his chance to get in the middle of this.

:39:11.:39:16.

You can imagine that Jake Wightman on the warm up track will be

:39:17.:39:21.

watching this. All Charlie can do is run as well as he can.

:39:22.:39:35.

400 metres to go. Kibet starts to push on. Charlie Grice following on.

:39:36.:39:46.

Charlie Grice is running strongly, challenging Kibet. Filip

:39:47.:39:49.

Ingebrigtsen is moving quickly. Chris O'Hare on the inside. He

:39:50.:39:55.

slightly slowing. Charlie Grice has run a good race. Filip Ingebrigtsen

:39:56.:40:02.

has struggled so far this year. His younger brother has been gaining all

:40:03.:40:07.

of the headlines. Charlie Grice is still in a good position. Now Chris

:40:08.:40:17.

O'Hare finds the gap. It is Filip Ingebrigtsen who has stolen a march.

:40:18.:40:22.

Kibet is chasing. Look at Chris O'Hare with his blistering turn of

:40:23.:40:28.

pace. Chris O'Hare trying to get there. He is sprinting for this. He

:40:29.:40:33.

is going to get it. Chris oche wins at. Three

:40:34.:40:46.

he got a personal best and attacked too early. He normally times are

:40:47.:40:55.

very well. What he did not do last weekend, he doesn't panic. He got in

:40:56.:41:01.

a bad position. Chris does not panic and waits for the gaps to appear. He

:41:02.:41:07.

trusts himself and his pace and came away with the win. He comes on the

:41:08.:41:10.

finishing pace. He trusts his finishing. He battles in the

:41:11.:41:18.

finishing straight. He has not won it comfortably, he did it by working

:41:19.:41:24.

hard and sticking to it, by crossing the line, leaning forward and

:41:25.:41:28.

pushing every ounce. There he is moving quickly into the finishing

:41:29.:41:31.

straight. Charlie Grice had ran a fine race. He was fading away. It is

:41:32.:41:38.

down to three men. Who wanted to win it most? Chris O'Hare, the British

:41:39.:41:43.

champion, looking for the post before going to the world

:41:44.:41:46.

Championships. -- looking for the boost. Superb performance for Chris

:41:47.:41:54.

oche. Not his personal best but not far off it. Kibet and Filip

:41:55.:42:05.

Ingebrigtsen not far behind. Chris is now with Phil. Brendan Foster was

:42:06.:42:09.

talking about getting a boost before the World Championship. It is so

:42:10.:42:15.

much fun out here. Listening to the national anthem. Watching the boys

:42:16.:42:21.

get their medal. It gave me a boost. The pace was not comfortable. I was

:42:22.:42:28.

trying to keep working hard in training. My legs were not fresh.

:42:29.:42:37.

With 300 to go, I felt fine. I had to push out to get back into the

:42:38.:42:42.

race. And that determination is something above all else we have

:42:43.:42:46.

seen from you time after time, that fighting spirit you have got deep

:42:47.:42:51.

within you. You have to fight for what you want, nobody will give it

:42:52.:42:54.

to you. If you want to be the best you have to fight for that. What

:42:55.:42:58.

about being back here for the world Championships with this as a

:42:59.:43:03.

sendoff? It is amazing. That is going to be more people here for the

:43:04.:43:12.

Worlds. The crowd no how to get behind us. It will be magical.

:43:13.:43:21.

Congratulations. ODE: There are some athletes who raise their game. That

:43:22.:43:23.

was a great display. He puts together everything you need

:43:24.:43:37.

to be to be a top performer. He is really calm. He judged that

:43:38.:43:43.

perfectly. He took the bit between his teeth. He was impetuous and

:43:44.:43:49.

possibly attacked too soon. He timed it to perfection, Chris oche. To be

:43:50.:44:04.

healthy and racing well, coming into the home Championships. Charlie

:44:05.:44:10.

Grice had everything to win today. Chris O'Hare had a little bit to

:44:11.:44:15.

lose. He did not panic. He really deserved that victory. The man they

:44:16.:44:22.

all aspire to, that led the way to middle distance running for nearly a

:44:23.:44:26.

decade now, it'll be his farewell season on the track, Mo Farah.

:44:27.:44:33.

Reluctantly crowd at the starting line. Engines pumping in line. The

:44:34.:44:47.

green flag score up. It is Mo Farah. He is sprinting away. Bow to his

:44:48.:44:52.

superiority. Mo Farah wins the gold. He is striking for home now. Mo

:44:53.:44:59.

Farah is the world champion again. He is the double Olympic champion.

:45:00.:45:05.

Have you seen anything like that? He is going to get gold for Great

:45:06.:45:07.

Britain again. The double-double. Any seconds now we will see their

:45:08.:45:18.

men's 400-metre hurdles with Olympic champion Kerron Clement. The men's

:45:19.:45:32.

200 metres in includes Nethaneel Mitchell-Blake. And Aries Merritt is

:45:33.:45:40.

getting close to his best. The Olympic champion in the women's long

:45:41.:45:45.

jump, Bartoletta. Followed by the final of the women's 100 metres with

:45:46.:45:49.

Elaine Thompson and Dafne Schippers going head-to-head. Allyson Felix,

:45:50.:45:58.

another American legend here today. The men's 800 metres features Amos.

:45:59.:46:08.

The first of two sprint hurdles finals. Cameron Harrison recreate

:46:09.:46:14.

the record run from this time last year. Laura Muir is after Zola

:46:15.:46:19.

Budd's record in the mile, 30 years old. Mo Farah will be rounding off

:46:20.:46:26.

an amazing afternoon in the 3000 metres. We can get out. Andrew

:46:27.:46:31.

Cotter can talk us through the start of the 400-metre hurdles.

:46:32.:46:34.

COMMENTATOR: Jack Green just had his introduction. Kerron Clement, the

:46:35.:46:40.

Olympic champion, not great by his lofty standards this season, only

:46:41.:46:44.

seventh in the US championships but he's OK for the World Championships.

:46:45.:46:48.

He has a wild card is the 2016 Diamond League race when. Kyron

:46:49.:46:53.

McMaster from the British Virgin Islands. What an improvement this

:46:54.:46:57.

year. Went below 49 seconds for the first time, and then 47.8. Eric

:46:58.:47:04.

Futch won the US title in Sacramento last month in a personal best time.

:47:05.:47:10.

We have the one and two from the US trials because Michael Stigler was

:47:11.:47:13.

second in Sacramento, also a personal best there of 48.2 six. A

:47:14.:47:25.

very strong line-up. Mamadou Kasse Hann from France. The former

:47:26.:47:31.

Senegalese athlete. Quincy Downing has the second quickest time in the

:47:32.:47:35.

world this year, Duran that in Jamaica at the start of June, but

:47:36.:47:41.

only sixth at the US Championship. No Worlds for Quincy. On the inside,

:47:42.:47:49.

Jacob Paul. He was second at the UK Championships behind Jack Green.

:47:50.:47:55.

Green is in lane nine. Jacob Paul looking for the qualifying standard.

:47:56.:48:00.

Jack Green looking to get down into the 48s. He says he's feels

:48:01.:48:05.

comfortable at the low 49s. Wants to get back to where he was in 2012.

:48:06.:48:12.

Can he do it today? Strong line-up. The Diamond League points leader is

:48:13.:48:25.

not here. Jacob Paul on the inside. Downing, Hann, Stigler, Eric Futch,

:48:26.:48:29.

McMaster, Clement, Copello and Jack Green.

:48:30.:48:50.

Jack Green on the far outside running with nobody outside him, but

:48:51.:49:00.

Copello moves quickly alongside. McMaster in lane six, a barrier is

:49:01.:49:07.

clattered. McMaster is flying over the opening 200. Jacob Paul looking

:49:08.:49:13.

for a qualifying standard on the inside. Jacob Paul tends to finish

:49:14.:49:19.

races strongly. McMaster of the British Virgin Islands is a long way

:49:20.:49:23.

clear of the rest. He is the quickest man in the world this

:49:24.:49:29.

season. A little stumble from McMaster. Getting tired now. They

:49:30.:49:34.

are chasing him down. Stigler and Clement are both coming. McMaster is

:49:35.:49:42.

tiring. Just so well. Clement said he was struggling a bit this season,

:49:43.:49:46.

but perhaps he's timing this season as well as he timed that race. A

:49:47.:49:50.

slap on the backside, celebration Copello. Rate stuff from Clement.

:49:51.:49:56.

McMaster, we know his youthful exuberance and his talent, but he

:49:57.:49:59.

got it a little bit wrong in terms of judgment. Just went off too fast.

:50:00.:50:04.

Clement with a season's best time for victory. The right time to be

:50:05.:50:09.

turning it on and Kerron Clement is certainly doing that. This is where

:50:10.:50:12.

experience comes in. Clement has been around a long time. He will

:50:13.:50:16.

have seen all this in front of him with people going off and tearing

:50:17.:50:20.

round the first 300 metres and not being able to sustain it. He has a

:50:21.:50:25.

huge gap to make up, but the young man McMaster stumbled so badly off

:50:26.:50:30.

that barrier. He fell apart and crumbled. Watching him all away

:50:31.:50:36.

around, the master has to be very careful trailing. When he pulls his

:50:37.:50:41.

trailing leg around the barriers he sometimes doesn't clear it. He has

:50:42.:50:46.

to be careful. In some Championships that will be scrutinised and he

:50:47.:50:50.

could end up being discovered by. That was a tough 48.12 for him. A

:50:51.:50:58.

quick race, but Clement, the Olympic champion, takes it.

:50:59.:51:06.

Stefanidi, unbeaten so far in 2017. The Olympic champion. Comfortable

:51:07.:51:18.

again. Tony, she's really taken control of the competition. Great

:51:19.:51:25.

speed into the poll. This is the height she comfortable at. We will

:51:26.:51:29.

see where she goes next. 4.73, the bar will go to 4.81 next. Stefanidi

:51:30.:51:43.

going clear at this site. This is 4.81 just to confirm. First-time

:51:44.:51:47.

clearance for Stefanidi. Looking really good ahead of Morris, the

:51:48.:51:50.

silver-medallist from Rio. Another field event underway, the

:51:51.:52:03.

long jump with Dan Bramble chasing automatic qualification of 8.15, but

:52:04.:52:08.

jumping into a slight headwind. Has jumped eight metres already this

:52:09.:52:14.

year, just below it there. Hasn't quite got into that form today. His

:52:15.:52:19.

best so far is 7.4 nine. This looks a little better. Just shy of eight

:52:20.:52:25.

metres, Tony. Just forward rotating a little bit. Much better speed. 12

:52:26.:52:31.

centimetres is the difference on the board, a bit of wasted distance.

:52:32.:52:35.

Drops his head and comes in early. Keep his chest and head up and he

:52:36.:52:40.

will have a better chance of getting up to the 8.15 he needs. 7.8 four.

:52:41.:52:50.

Looking to get himself fit, Greg Rutherford. Dan Bramble hoping to

:52:51.:52:57.

join Rutherford. Henderson, his compatriot. The two Americans out in

:52:58.:53:01.

front. Michael Hartfield was seventh at the US trials with 7.94, such is

:53:02.:53:07.

the strength. He would make the team in any other in the world. Apart

:53:08.:53:16.

from North America. Michael Hartfield, quick, isn't he? Quick

:53:17.:53:21.

and a much flatter trajectory at take-off. We saw Dan Bramble go up

:53:22.:53:26.

and down and stole a bit. This chap carries more speed across the board

:53:27.:53:32.

and carries it into the pit. 7.99 for Hartfield. Nicole Buchler to

:53:33.:53:38.

stay in the competition and match the clearance of Stefanidi. She has

:53:39.:53:45.

two fouls, this is a final try. Can't do that. The red flag pops up.

:53:46.:53:51.

Even without taking off, that's a foul. New territory for her. That

:53:52.:53:57.

would have been a lifetime best. But it was a good performance ahead of

:53:58.:54:03.

Morris. Stefanidi takes the win ahead of Nicole Buchler. Morris, the

:54:04.:54:09.

reigning world champion, same height as Holly Bradshaw. Zharnel Hughes is

:54:10.:54:16.

coming up next in the men's 200 metres. He came fourth in the trials

:54:17.:54:23.

last week in Birmingham. He had the qualifying time. He had a fantastic

:54:24.:54:30.

heat, but it didn't quite happen for him in the final, Denise? It didn't.

:54:31.:54:34.

This was a man looking so easy in the heats and for all intents and

:54:35.:54:38.

purposes he ran a really good turn. Just where we are expecting him to

:54:39.:54:46.

kick on, he panics. The panics, sees Talbot and Mitchell-Blake and then

:54:47.:54:52.

others go past him. I think he overcooked it. He can't overthink

:54:53.:54:57.

the race today. He is quick enough, he has the talent. He has to enjoy

:54:58.:55:01.

the race and prove to the selectors that he is a worthy candidate. His

:55:02.:55:06.

shoulders are rocking and rolling and he's starting to fight at this

:55:07.:55:10.

point. He needed to stay relaxed and perhaps he would have secured a

:55:11.:55:16.

better position than he did. He'd had such an exemplary run here.

:55:17.:55:21.

Looked absolutely relaxed, his running style is so natural. What

:55:22.:55:27.

would be successful for him today in terms of doing enough for the

:55:28.:55:33.

selectors? Is it to take the scalp of his potential team-mate

:55:34.:55:35.

Mitchell-Blake to show his racing is on track? The danger for him is that

:55:36.:55:40.

he shouldn't get into the race in battle. Not focus on the domestic

:55:41.:55:44.

battle. He is gifted, he has trained well. He looks the part. He has to

:55:45.:55:50.

do attacked the bend and just stay relaxed. The selectors will know he

:55:51.:55:56.

can perform on the big stage. Fifth at the Beijing World Championships

:55:57.:56:00.

in 2015. What will that stand in terms of his credit when they think

:56:01.:56:04.

of whose name will be on the selector's sheet? Steve Cram. He is

:56:05.:56:11.

out in lane nine. He will hope he can run his own race here. If you

:56:12.:56:17.

are looking for new names in athletics, Fred Curley. A superb

:56:18.:56:20.

season in 400 metres, the American champion. A massive talent. His

:56:21.:56:29.

first ever Diamond League meeting. Christophe LeMaitre, well-known in

:56:30.:56:35.

Diamond League meetings and a European bronze-medallist.

:56:36.:56:38.

Mitchell-Blake is in superb form. Most of his racing in the US but is

:56:39.:56:44.

now staking a claim as a big member of the British team. Dan Talbot

:56:45.:56:48.

having a great season. A great runner on the bend. In the form of

:56:49.:56:54.

his life and getting closer to the 22nd mark, which would be the holy

:56:55.:57:05.

grail for the 200-metre runners. Isiah Young has made the

:57:06.:57:09.

Championships for the US in recent years. Never performs well there.

:57:10.:57:14.

Produces fast times but rarely runs well at the championships. Rasheed

:57:15.:57:19.

Dwyer from Jamaica in lane two. Tougher as we move to the inside

:57:20.:57:25.

lanes. Another sub 22nd man. And Commonwealth Games champion as well.

:57:26.:57:30.

And Martina, another well-known figure in European 200-metre rowing.

:57:31.:57:38.

A former medallist. 33 years old, on the inside. No Adam Gemili. So for

:57:39.:57:45.

Zharnel Hughes, stake your claim here, run your race, run fast, and

:57:46.:57:51.

hope the selectors see that as a performance to merit selection, and

:57:52.:57:56.

Adam Gemili will be hoping he gets more time. Mitchell-Blake and Dan

:57:57.:58:07.

Talbot, no worries for them. Looking for good performances against

:58:08.:58:10.

world-class opposition. Ameer Webb, the American champion, in lane four.

:58:11.:58:22.

Yeah, well, we were almost heading for that. I was watching the outer

:58:23.:58:43.

lanes. Colin, it was a long time before they went to the set

:58:44.:58:46.

position. I know we have to wait until everybody is ready but you

:58:47.:58:50.

think it was Isiah Young. It was uncomfortable watching that. It was

:58:51.:58:55.

really long, an extremely long time. I was trying to look at what the

:58:56.:58:59.

officials are doing to see if they were checking peoples fingers. It

:59:00.:59:03.

was really tough. You have good eyes still! Isiah Young, he's in lane

:59:04.:59:07.

three. Lane one was all so close. Isiah

:59:08.:59:25.

Young coming up as a negative. Must have moved before. The pressure pad

:59:26.:59:29.

is very sensitive. They are checking it out.

:59:30.:00:04.

is going to get gold for Great Britain again. The double-double.

:00:05.:00:08.

was a very long holder before they went to the set position.

:00:09.:00:39.

It is very tight. 20.14. Fred Kerley would be delighted if he got second.

:00:40.:01:20.

The others were around 20.3. That is your winner. It is interesting. When

:01:21.:01:27.

a 400-metre runner can come to the 200 metres and run a personal best.

:01:28.:01:32.

You have to think, what is wrong? It is an event that has not come alive

:01:33.:01:38.

for me this year. He is the main contender to take the gold in the

:01:39.:01:41.

World Championships anti-is a great 400-metre runner. He is an

:01:42.:01:51.

phenomenal 400 metres ship. And he has ran 19.84 for the 200 metres. He

:01:52.:02:00.

is head and shoulders above everybody. The three British

:02:01.:02:04.

athletes were very close. Mitchell-Blake and Danny Talbot. It

:02:05.:02:11.

has Danny Talbot is fourth on the screen in the stadium. I do not

:02:12.:02:14.

think that is right. Mitchell-Blake surely is fourth. It is close for

:02:15.:02:21.

Zharnel Hughes and Danny Talbot after that. Good run from Fred

:02:22.:02:29.

Kerley in second. It might well be Hughes ahead of Danny Talbot. We are

:02:30.:02:34.

having some problems in here with the technical aspects of this. The

:02:35.:02:40.

result is appealing on the screen are not correct and some of the

:02:41.:02:45.

media have been struggling with some of the results. That is how we see

:02:46.:02:50.

it. Mitchell-Blake confirmed in fourth place. That British battle,

:02:51.:02:57.

Hughes ahead of Daniel Talbot. Is that good enough? Let us pose the

:02:58.:03:04.

questions to the man himself, is that good enough for the selectors

:03:05.:03:07.

to give you the third pick? I think it was good enough for me. Hopefully

:03:08.:03:12.

they can select me and give me a chance. Myself and my coach have

:03:13.:03:20.

some bits and pieces to work on right now. I trust that everything

:03:21.:03:27.

will be fine for me. I will come to the World Championships and the

:03:28.:03:30.

liver. You read on the outside lane, lane nine, what is going through

:03:31.:03:35.

your line on what you need to do? It is getting off the bend and staying

:03:36.:03:40.

focused. Not going to close to the inside lane. After that, stay

:03:41.:03:47.

relaxed in the home straight, power my way through and hold on. It is

:03:48.:03:50.

their frustration and you could not get the place last week, you have to

:03:51.:03:55.

go through this process? It was frustrating. On that today, I did

:03:56.:04:03.

not execute the race I wish I'd could have. I messed up coming

:04:04.:04:08.

around the bend. It cost me in the home straight. I am in great shape.

:04:09.:04:12.

It is for me to go out and prove that at the World Championships. We

:04:13.:04:16.

wish you well. Thank you. Have a good day. COMMENTATOR: In the last

:04:17.:04:27.

round of the long jump. Henderson went from fourth to first in the

:04:28.:04:33.

Olympics last year. He is already in the lead at these anniversary games.

:04:34.:04:39.

This is the last jump. It looks to be bang on the mark that he set in

:04:40.:04:46.

the second round. He is in shape but not guaranteed to go to the World

:04:47.:04:52.

Championships. If he does, he is a contender. I think so. If you look

:04:53.:04:56.

at his speed. The way that he gathers his stride, he stands up on

:04:57.:05:04.

the board. Look at his leg speed. He is running into a headwind. Just not

:05:05.:05:09.

able to generate the speed that he needs. This is the pet that took

:05:10.:05:18.

Greg Rutherford to gold five years ago. Let us hope he can return to

:05:19.:05:26.

action from that angle injury. -- ankle injury. He has won the

:05:27.:05:31.

competition. It is one, two, three for America. There is the final

:05:32.:05:44.

result. Some unravelling of the best Americans that will contest for the

:05:45.:05:48.

World Championships. Bramble looks to be a long way off. Another great

:05:49.:06:04.

field event. Look out for Marriott Mass at Skinner. She is competing

:06:05.:06:18.

unattached. Mariya Lasitskene is the unattached athlete. Morgan Lake is

:06:19.:06:23.

easily capable of this. More like it. Some nerves from Morgan. She

:06:24.:06:32.

will be happy with that. The competition continues and she can

:06:33.:06:36.

settle in. She might have needed that as a secular. Morgan Lake, 1.80

:06:37.:06:42.

clearance. Morgan Lake cleared 1.96 to take the

:06:43.:06:58.

British title last week. We know she is in form. She jumped 1.93 in

:06:59.:07:11.

Switzerland during the week. This is 1.85. Moving up to watch what she is

:07:12.:07:16.

capable of. Very good. Perhaps she has settled on? I think so. I think

:07:17.:07:20.

it is difficult coming from Switzerland. Finding your river am a

:07:21.:07:27.

little bit in this stadium is something she will have to get used

:07:28.:07:35.

to. Last year she jumped nine times over 1.90. And apart up and coming

:07:36.:07:47.

star, Vashti Cunningham. She is the daughter of Randall Cunningham. The

:07:48.:07:56.

great quarterback. Her dad was a great superstar, Philadelphia Eagles

:07:57.:08:02.

quarterback. Her coach will be happy with that and so does she. Some

:08:03.:08:11.

absentees from the men's 110 metres hurdles. Jake Porter goes for

:08:12.:08:26.

Britain. So does David Omoregie. Michael Thomas from Trinidad and

:08:27.:08:35.

Tobago. 13.33 this season. Eddie Lovett is from the US Virgin Islands

:08:36.:08:41.

now. A couple of Americans in this line-up. Jarret Eaton was fourth in

:08:42.:08:50.

the indoor Championships. Seventh at the US trials. And the Birchall

:08:51.:08:57.

Harrier, Jake Porter. Finished third in the UK Championships. That was

:08:58.:09:09.

won by David King. That is Garfield Darien. 13.09 last month. Fourth

:09:10.:09:21.

quickest in the world this year. And Milan Trajkovic from Cyprus is just

:09:22.:09:27.

inside him. He run well in the Paris Diamond League race. Aaron Mallet

:09:28.:10:04.

from the United States in lane two. David Omoregie just takes it. 13.44

:10:05.:10:13.

four David Omoregie. That was untidy from if you athletes. It was very

:10:14.:10:18.

noisy. You can see the scattered debris on the track. David Omoregie

:10:19.:10:24.

was the least untidy of all. Just about taking it. Decent finish as

:10:25.:10:30.

well from Jarret Eaton. It was close. Little look across from Milan

:10:31.:10:33.

Trajkovic. Three go through automatically. You have described

:10:34.:10:40.

that so well. It is the body on the track. It is pure carnage. Look at

:10:41.:10:47.

all the hurdles that abound. Lots of athletes have clattered the barriers

:10:48.:10:50.

and have taken them out of the race by hitting the barriers. We remember

:10:51.:10:57.

that David made that crucial trial at the -- crucial mistake at the

:10:58.:11:01.

trials. More than capable of getting the automatic place. He pulls

:11:02.:11:05.

himself through antiques this heat which is important. It will give him

:11:06.:11:11.

a goodly drop in the final. He just needs to run a clean race, do not

:11:12.:11:16.

put yourself under pressure. I think we will see him return to this

:11:17.:11:21.

stadium. He will be back for the final in about one hour. Look at him

:11:22.:11:28.

again. You might see some barriers getting knocked by all and sundry.

:11:29.:11:34.

The first barrier, straight into it. That is the most crucial. We want to

:11:35.:11:38.

generate speed. We do not want to make any mistakes for the first

:11:39.:11:43.

three hurdles. After that if you crash into them it is not too bad

:11:44.:11:47.

because you already have your pace and verve. A clean race is still the

:11:48.:11:57.

best race. He defeated some good quality athletes in Garfield Darien.

:11:58.:12:05.

And Jarret Eaton. The three who qualify are David Omoregie, Milan

:12:06.:12:13.

Trajkovic and Jarret Eaton. Personal best for Jake Porter in seventh

:12:14.:12:14.

place. Mariya Lasitskene, neutral athlete,

:12:15.:12:33.

in brackets, Russian. 1.85. Look at that. She is dominant on the Diamond

:12:34.:12:37.

League and is unbeaten this year. She was the world champion last

:12:38.:12:48.

year. She is the favourite to take the world title again this year.

:12:49.:12:57.

Matthew Hudson-Smith. Ran a superb race at the British trials last week

:12:58.:13:05.

in the 400 metres. He went under 45 seconds. He is the only person who

:13:06.:13:14.

has cemented his place. Martyn Rooney is European Champion. He is

:13:15.:13:18.

designated to be eligible if you brush to have the qualifying time.

:13:19.:13:24.

And the man who surprised everybody, the man who won the European team

:13:25.:13:36.

Championships. Matthew Hudson-Smith in lane five. Michael Cherry

:13:37.:13:40.

insight. Matthew Hudson-Smith stopped and then tripped. It looks

:13:41.:13:44.

like he felt it was a false start. Let us hope he is OK. Big gap in the

:13:45.:13:51.

middle. Martyn Rooney trying to chase down Rabah Yousif. Martyn

:13:52.:13:59.

Rooney has been smooth through the first 200. And also Michael Cherry.

:14:00.:14:04.

Kevin Borlee trying to get into this. Tony McQuay is the one going

:14:05.:14:19.

well. Look at Michael Cherry. The storms away. Good performance from

:14:20.:14:27.

Renny Quow. Closest to the camera. The best of the British athletes.

:14:28.:14:32.

That will be another quick time. Renny Quow keeps getting better.

:14:33.:14:37.

They are not going to the World Championships but the two of them

:14:38.:14:40.

ran so fast that the American trials and that not have to go so quickly

:14:41.:14:42.

to win today. That was earlier as he made the

:14:43.:14:57.

transition from BBC Two to BBC One. Phil Jones has news on Matthew

:14:58.:15:01.

Hudson-Smith. And it's good news. When Matthew stumbled out of the

:15:02.:15:05.

box, he initially clutched his hamstring. Looked like it could be

:15:06.:15:09.

trouble, but as he walked off, he said it was no injury, he was

:15:10.:15:13.

embarrassed more than hurt and he will be fine to be at the World

:15:14.:15:19.

Championships in London. Just checking behind to see the men

:15:20.:15:24.

lining up for the second of the 110 metre hurdles heats. It's good news,

:15:25.:15:32.

Denise, when we saw earlier we thought there was panic for Matthew

:15:33.:15:35.

Hudson-Smith. It is good news. He had injuries last season but he's

:15:36.:15:39.

fit, great, the winner of the trials, so he has is qualifying spot

:15:40.:15:44.

anyway. That's good. We can get down there and Steve Cram can talk you

:15:45.:15:49.

through the second heat of the men's 110 metre hurdles. COMMENTATOR:

:15:50.:15:54.

Going back to the 400, Callan with another personal best. -- Cowan with

:15:55.:16:07.

another personal best, doing himself a lot of favours for selection.

:16:08.:16:11.

David King goes in lane two in this one, winner of the British

:16:12.:16:15.

Championships, going to the World Championships. Shane Brathwaite, the

:16:16.:16:20.

bronze-medallist from the Commonwealth Games, 31 this year,

:16:21.:16:26.

not quite going as fast as he would like. Aries Merritt, what a good

:16:27.:16:32.

year he's having. If you are not aware, this man had a kidney

:16:33.:16:36.

transplant adverse comeback in superb form. Devon Allen had a

:16:37.:16:44.

pretty obvious. In Paris. An American football talent, now

:16:45.:16:52.

focused on athletics. Ali Karas won the trials. If you do that in

:16:53.:16:56.

American high hurdles, you're not doing bad at all. Still has to run

:16:57.:17:00.

the times to go with that. Yet to break 30 -- 13 seconds. Wenjun Xie

:17:01.:17:14.

of China. Nicholas Hough of Australia, and then Koen Smet of the

:17:15.:17:18.

Netherlands. The top three and the three fastest go through. We had a

:17:19.:17:27.

messy race in heat one. With this one, three Americans, you would be

:17:28.:17:30.

surprised if it's not those three. But you never know.

:17:31.:17:41.

This race suffered from the withdrawal of Pozzi and McLeod was

:17:42.:17:51.

going to be here as well. The guy who won in Paris, and surprised

:17:52.:17:56.

everyone, he was another one hoping to be here. The defending champion

:17:57.:18:04.

isn't here, but will be when they come back in August. Devon Allen

:18:05.:18:14.

right in the middle, lane five. Two team-mates either side, Aries

:18:15.:18:17.

Merritt and Aleec Harris. Devon Allen gets the best start.

:18:18.:18:34.

Being left a little bit is the American champion. These two pulling

:18:35.:18:38.

away with Brathwaite, who will be the top three. 13.24. No

:18:39.:18:46.

histrionics. Fairly straightforward. What on earth happened to Harris?

:18:47.:18:52.

Maybe Colin saw, he never got going. It left Brathwaite able to come

:18:53.:18:57.

through for the third spot. We can pick up with Harris. Aries Merritt,

:18:58.:19:02.

Olympic champion and world record holder. All of that in the two or

:19:03.:19:09.

three years, and then going through something which in anybody 's life,

:19:10.:19:14.

a kid in transplant, but he has come back consistently good, Colin. I

:19:15.:19:18.

spoke to him just before and just after his transplant and he's always

:19:19.:19:23.

in a positive mind frame. He always felt he could return, and return he

:19:24.:19:30.

has. One of the things Harris has, he's blessed with a flawless,

:19:31.:19:34.

smooth, liquid like technique. He glides over the barriers. He made it

:19:35.:19:40.

look like a huge gap between him and the hurdles, that's fine. What you

:19:41.:19:44.

don't want to do is raise or lower your centre of gravity. Keep it as

:19:45.:19:47.

close to your sprinting form as you can, and he managed to do that. Long

:19:48.:19:51.

legs and he's the world-record holder. Wenjun Xie will go through

:19:52.:20:01.

as well. Probably too from the other heat that will go through as fastest

:20:02.:20:11.

losers, to the final. Morgan Lake, 1.9 zero. Second chance. That's

:20:12.:20:19.

better. She ran at that. A little bit bouncy, Tony. I think she's

:20:20.:20:26.

struggling to find her rhythm. Those failures in competition like the

:20:27.:20:29.

World Championships will count. A little wobble there, again over

:20:30.:20:35.

1.90. Again, showing consistency here. First round of the javelin.

:20:36.:20:43.

Elizabeth Gleadle of Canada. Season's best of 62 metres. Just

:20:44.:20:49.

accelerated on that. That's a decent throw. I thought that had stalled,

:20:50.:20:55.

but the javelin levelled out mid-flight. Her eyes are up in the

:20:56.:20:59.

air. The javelin follows that, but somehow lined it up. It looks like

:21:00.:21:05.

Elizabeth Gleadle could be closing down her lifetime best, that was

:21:06.:21:14.

64.93 a couple of years ago. She knew she got that right, Tony. The

:21:15.:21:21.

tattoo says keep your feet on the ground and your eyes on the stars. I

:21:22.:21:25.

think she was looking at the stars there, higher than you would say.

:21:26.:21:31.

But gets it out with a good opener. Season's best, Elizabeth Gleadle

:21:32.:21:36.

takes the lead. Ashley Cunningham in the high jump. She's already had two

:21:37.:21:42.

fouls. Good. Whatever was the problem on those first two attempts,

:21:43.:21:46.

she has managed to sort it out. She's only 19 years of age. A young

:21:47.:21:52.

indoor champion. Hugely talented American. Maybe she will be around

:21:53.:22:01.

for many years to come. And maybe this year's World Championships.

:22:02.:22:04.

Cunningham continues in the women's high jump. The women are out for the

:22:05.:22:09.

100-metre final. The heats were earlier today, the silver-medallist

:22:10.:22:17.

from the Rio Olympics, flying Dutchwoman Dafne Schippers. She

:22:18.:22:24.

looked amazing in this hundred. She was gliding, when she's in top mode

:22:25.:22:28.

she's beautiful to watch. Gliding past everyone. A new season's best.

:22:29.:22:36.

I was worried about her earlier in the season. Even watching over the

:22:37.:22:40.

200 where she did not seem like the Dafne Schippers of last year. But

:22:41.:22:45.

she has put that behind her. Running a fast time earlier in the week. But

:22:46.:22:50.

over 100, when she runs smoothly, I think she's great to watch. She is

:22:51.:22:56.

looking strong, quick. Over the last few weeks you might have looked

:22:57.:23:01.

heavy and slow, but this should be a really good final. Used to be a

:23:02.:23:04.

heptathlete and made the transition a couple of seasons ago to focus on

:23:05.:23:10.

the sprints, 100 and 200 metres. Elaine Thompson, I don't know what

:23:11.:23:13.

this means and the difference it would make to her time, but I was

:23:14.:23:19.

reading after the race, where she looked great, that she was only in

:23:20.:23:23.

racing flats, not spikes. That can't be true. That would be incredible.

:23:24.:23:29.

As relaxed as she is to get through. She might do that in heats in 1500

:23:30.:23:35.

metres, but in 800 metres, but she wouldn't do that, surely. She might

:23:36.:23:39.

be nursing an injury, but usually you do not see that in sprints, not

:23:40.:23:44.

at this level. You would expect her to have her spikes on now and

:23:45.:23:49.

pushing for her very best. It's time for the race and he is Andrew

:23:50.:23:52.

Cotter. COMMENTATOR: Unlike the men's sprint we get that chance here

:23:53.:23:58.

to see the best of women's sprinting coming together. Dafne Schippers is

:23:59.:24:04.

a little bit further down the list. Oliveira Santos, already won in

:24:05.:24:10.

Lausanne during the week. Morolake Akinosun. The American is one of

:24:11.:24:17.

four women to go Lo 11 seconds this season in this line-up. Daryll

:24:18.:24:30.

Neita, there is a British tussle between her and Asha Philip.

:24:31.:24:37.

Okagbare-Ighoteguonor, she finished strongly in her heat. Also in the

:24:38.:24:44.

long jump. Dafne Schippers, another great 200-metre runner. Schippers

:24:45.:24:50.

has always been powerful, looks even more muscular this season, but when

:24:51.:24:53.

she gets her speed up she's very hard to catch. Michelle-Lee Ahye

:24:54.:24:58.

looks distracted, but focused, I'm sure. Second fastest in the world

:24:59.:25:05.

this year, running 10.82. Alongside, is rare to see her in lane seven,

:25:06.:25:08.

but she just jogged through their feet, Elaine Thompson. Schippers has

:25:09.:25:14.

never beaten Elaine Thompson over 100 metres. It's not a bad lane for

:25:15.:25:21.

Thompson, she is next to the flying starter, Asha Philip. She needs to

:25:22.:25:33.

go closer to her personal best of 11.10 to get closer to these

:25:34.:25:39.

runners. And Murielle Ahoure is a nonstarter.

:25:40.:25:49.

Just trying to see... I think Elaine Thompson is running in flats again.

:25:50.:26:02.

Colin Jackson is looking and saying, I think they are flats. Maybe she is

:26:03.:26:10.

protecting something. Her feet or Achilles. Asha Philip is away very

:26:11.:26:18.

quickly. Thompson now leaving her. Schippers looking to come through.

:26:19.:26:23.

The American is looking to come through. Thompson gets it, just.

:26:24.:26:29.

10.95, into a little bit of a breeze as well. Thompson takes the victory.

:26:30.:26:35.

I think she wanted that to say, with three weeks' time on this track,

:26:36.:26:39.

can't go with a psychological disadvantage of being beaten here.

:26:40.:26:43.

Dafne Schippers bested at the line by Elaine Thompson. It's rounded

:26:44.:26:51.

down to 10.94. Asha Philip didn't get her best start this time. Elaine

:26:52.:26:56.

Thompson was smartly out. Again, the wind into their faces, 1.4 metres

:26:57.:27:05.

per second. A season's best time for Okagbare-Ighoteguonor. Below 11

:27:06.:27:11.

seconds. Schippers would have loved to get her first victory over 100

:27:12.:27:18.

metres over Elaine Thompson. Still the woman to beat. And it's the

:27:19.:27:23.

window I have been impressed with, the women running under 11 seconds

:27:24.:27:29.

into a strong headwind. We are looking at performances around the

:27:30.:27:35.

10.8 mark in good conditions. Looking closely at her shoes, quite

:27:36.:27:41.

chunky heels on them. It could be that she's in flats or something

:27:42.:27:48.

similar that. She has run 10.94 on a pair of old Dunlop Green flats. If

:27:49.:27:54.

Dafne Schippers can't beat her with that sort of position after 30 or 40

:27:55.:27:59.

metres, it is unlikely to come. Elaine Thompson coming back, not

:28:00.:28:03.

sure if she is struggling, but good enough there are. Good enough

:28:04.:28:13.

indeed. In with Dafne Schippers and Elaine Thompson. Being in this

:28:14.:28:16.

stadium ahead of the World Championships has given you a taste

:28:17.:28:20.

of what's to come. It's perfect. I love the atmosphere. Great people

:28:21.:28:24.

here. It was a good race is the green in terms of your form building

:28:25.:28:27.

to the World Championships, are you aware of who you need to beat? Of

:28:28.:28:32.

course. I will work on the last parts and we will be OK. Look

:28:33.:28:37.

forward to seeing you at the World Championships. Elaine Thompson, well

:28:38.:28:41.

done. You came bursting through in typical style. We saw you were

:28:42.:28:45.

running in flats, are you all right? I'm OK. I'm not comfortable in my

:28:46.:28:51.

new spike trainers. So I'm doing it in these flats. I'm trying to get

:28:52.:28:55.

used to it, even though it feels weird. I just want to execute. After

:28:56.:29:01.

the double gold medal success in Rio last year, you are the big star of

:29:02.:29:07.

athletics. How are you looking forward to the World Championships?

:29:08.:29:10.

Really looking forward. The track feels great and the crowd is

:29:11.:29:14.

awesome. I get that drive already. Trying to pave the way to the

:29:15.:29:19.

Worlds. You know you will get incredible support here. You said in

:29:20.:29:24.

2012 that you will feel the same love. You know that a lot of

:29:25.:29:33.

Jamaicans are in London. To feel the crowd, I just want to execute and

:29:34.:29:37.

give them all my love. Great to see you here and we look forward to

:29:38.:29:38.

seeing you back. ODE: She is an effervescent

:29:39.:29:54.

personality. She was in trainers, practically. She must have some

:29:55.:30:04.

spikes. They are not ordinary trading shoes. They are very light

:30:05.:30:09.

and will suit her. This is a woman who has ran 10.70 so we do expect to

:30:10.:30:18.

see how move through the field that we expect too. Very relaxed and

:30:19.:30:23.

beautiful running. Clearly confident. Such incredible upper

:30:24.:30:30.

body strength. And courage. You look at Dafne Schippers, different body

:30:31.:30:36.

type. Elaine Thompson is very light. She glides across the floor. She is

:30:37.:30:43.

beautiful to watch. Dafne Schippers is a powerful runner and makes great

:30:44.:30:51.

use of her stride length. I think she looks really strong. She is

:30:52.:31:01.

possibly racing in the racing flats with the carbon fibre plate. You

:31:02.:31:05.

certainly feel like you are sprinting faster than them. There

:31:06.:31:11.

must be some sort of Spike grip on the bottom, surely, to run that

:31:12.:31:16.

quick. The sprinters are so sensitive to the changes in the

:31:17.:31:21.

footwear. For her to run that quickly, it is pretty impressive. It

:31:22.:31:26.

is ominous for one month's time. Let us get back to the high jump and

:31:27.:31:33.

Steve Backley. The high jump is hotting up. Erika Kinsey, the

:31:34.:31:37.

relatively unknown Swede. Looking to clear the new height of 1.94 and

:31:38.:31:49.

does, just. That is a seasoned's best for her. That will go into the

:31:50.:31:59.

lead. First time clearance. Mariya Lasitskene. The world leader goes

:32:00.:32:09.

clear also. That is the first time clearance. She has knocked the bar

:32:10.:32:13.

off at a lower height and will be in second place to the Swede. She

:32:14.:32:22.

jumped 2.06 the few days ago. She is in great shape.

:32:23.:32:40.

COMMENTATOR: This is an interesting race because of the appearance of

:32:41.:32:47.

Allyson Felix. Natasha Hastings did her best and did not make it into

:32:48.:32:52.

the team. Some new names in the American team as we head towards the

:32:53.:32:57.

World Championships. Allyson Felix is the defending champion so she did

:32:58.:33:03.

not have to contest. She has only run one race this year. She ran the

:33:04.:33:09.

200 metres at the American Championships. Really interesting to

:33:10.:33:15.

see how Allyson Felix does. Shericka Jackson has finished in third to

:33:16.:33:20.

Shaunae Miller and Allyson Felix at the US Championships. Novlene

:33:21.:33:28.

Williams-Mills is 35 and still running well. Emily Diamond cemented

:33:29.:33:32.

her place at the World Championships work the fine run behind is a Lee

:33:33.:33:36.

Clark. She is not here today. Those two have made the team. And we see

:33:37.:33:44.

this young lady. Shamier Little. Roulette 400-metre hurdler. She is

:33:45.:33:49.

now ninth best in the world ever at 400-metre hurdles. And Verone

:33:50.:34:01.

Chambers on the inside. The British scenario, Perri shakes Drayton,

:34:02.:34:07.

continued her good return to form, 32.7 Elliott in the week. Young

:34:08.:34:16.

Nielsen has the time. She is going to the under 20 fees.

:34:17.:34:24.

Only Emily Diamond in this for Great Britain. Allyson Felix in lane six.

:34:25.:34:39.

The world champion. Interesting to see how well she goes here.

:34:40.:34:52.

Cleanly away. Jackson inside Allyson Felix, trying to chase through the

:34:53.:35:02.

first 100 metres. Those two away quickly. Allyson Felix already

:35:03.:35:08.

making ground on Natasha Hastings. Hastings try to hold onto the collar

:35:09.:35:17.

of the American. Jackson is getting closer. Allyson Felix relaxing

:35:18.:35:22.

around the bend. Courtney Okolo is taking it to them. Allyson Felix now

:35:23.:35:29.

starting to dominate. She moves into the home straight with that lovely

:35:30.:35:35.

action that she has. And no Allyson Felix is stretching away from the

:35:36.:35:39.

field. Shamier Little doing well in lane two. Allyson Felix will win

:35:40.:35:47.

this from Courtney Okolo and then Shamier Little. Quickest in the

:35:48.:35:51.

world this year. I was interested to see how well she does. Shamier

:35:52.:35:57.

Little was running well. Those two are the standout 400-metre runners.

:35:58.:36:03.

Is Allyson Felix still capable of dropping a time? That is your

:36:04.:36:09.

answer. Yes. She looked very impressive, especially in the last

:36:10.:36:14.

120 metres. Good performance. She had a great battle with Shami --

:36:15.:36:24.

Shaunae Miller. Allyson Felix, there were questions about how she could

:36:25.:36:29.

run. She always looks so impressive. She has a grace. Ale of running. She

:36:30.:36:34.

is not slowing down over the last metres as much as you would expect

:36:35.:36:45.

to. Good run by Shamier Little. The hurdler has got great strength

:36:46.:36:49.

coming down the stretch and was impressive over the flat. This is a

:36:50.:36:54.

great angle to watch the style of Allyson Felix. She has got a long

:36:55.:36:59.

stride that does not tighten up. When she comes round the bend, she

:37:00.:37:05.

opens the stride length without increasing the cadence. Her speed of

:37:06.:37:11.

exploration is very deceptive. -- of acceleration. Well done, the world

:37:12.:37:19.

lead, you must be thrilled? I am rounding into shape so I am happy.

:37:20.:37:24.

You have the automatic spot on your World Championship win, you did not

:37:25.:37:29.

have to compete in the trials, how have you planned it? I wanted to be

:37:30.:37:33.

gradual this year. A very tough last year. Just easing my way into it.

:37:34.:37:38.

How did it feel being back out there, the London atmosphere. I love

:37:39.:37:45.

racing here, felt good to be back. And for the World Championships,

:37:46.:37:50.

adding to gold medals. I am still enjoying the sport. I am still going

:37:51.:37:55.

to keep fighting hard. We wish you well. Good luck.

:37:56.:38:02.

COMMENTATOR: Morgan Lake, the British champion, under pressure.

:38:03.:38:11.

Two files. I was expecting more. That did not look bright. Seemed to

:38:12.:38:18.

lose them. Put in a big stride and then tried to run at the bar. Ended

:38:19.:38:23.

up running straight at it instead of maintaining the curve. Not the

:38:24.:38:27.

free-flowing movement that we saw at the Nigel Championships when she

:38:28.:38:34.

cleared 1.9 six. -- National Championships. The long jumpers are

:38:35.:38:40.

right. That is your starters. Johnson-Thompson. That is a great

:38:41.:38:46.

field. This is Christabel Nettey to get

:38:47.:39:02.

things under way in the first round. That is around 6.60. Reasonable

:39:03.:39:15.

start. Christabel Nettey, 26, Canadian. The men jumped into a

:39:16.:39:21.

slight headwind. The athletes can expect that. She goes into the lead.

:39:22.:39:34.

6.63. I've felt she was busy on the runway. She was oscillating forward

:39:35.:39:38.

and back. Johnson-Thompson, first round. Bang on that leading mark.

:39:39.:39:47.

What is your reaction? I think from that point view, running better than

:39:48.:39:53.

previously on the runway. She dropped her feet in early. It was

:39:54.:40:00.

lazy. Just finding her marker. There is a lot more. You can see the track

:40:01.:40:07.

out as she follows, there is lots of energy. If she stays up in the air

:40:08.:40:12.

and brings her chest down, hold the landing position, she can get more

:40:13.:40:16.

distance. Good opener, in second place. There is an intriguing men's

:40:17.:40:23.

800 metres coming up. Intriguing for the men. So much still to sort out.

:40:24.:40:27.

Why is Jake Wightman going for this today? I think Jake has made a

:40:28.:40:35.

decision for his preparation moving forward to London. He was

:40:36.:40:38.

disappointed with the result and the trials. He turned out when lots of

:40:39.:40:48.

people did not in the European team Championships. He came back tyre

:40:49.:40:53.

that the trials. He has decided to race best that the World

:40:54.:40:57.

Championships, he needs 800 metres now. You can assume he will not be

:40:58.:41:01.

up for selection for the 800 metres at the moment. Andrew Osagie needs

:41:02.:41:09.

to be swell. Elliot Giles needs 18. Kyle Langford needs a time. If they

:41:10.:41:14.

get it, they put themselves into the reckoning. Should be expected quick

:41:15.:41:19.

race? COMMENTATOR: They are expecting for the quick race. The

:41:20.:41:32.

British athletes involved. Asbel Kiprop, he is having a bash at the

:41:33.:41:40.

800. Bram Som is the established pacemaker of the circuit. He has

:41:41.:41:47.

been asked to do 49 seconds. Nijel Amos is back to form, won the

:41:48.:41:51.

Diamond League in Paris, medal behind David Rudisha in that famous

:41:52.:41:55.

race five years ago. Never the prettiest to watch but looking good

:41:56.:42:00.

again in terms of times. Andrew Osagie was involved in that final

:42:01.:42:04.

and dragged along to personal bests. He would've liked that UK

:42:05.:42:09.

Championships to be quicker. He has the standard. You could get into top

:42:10.:42:15.

two. Donavan Brazier of the United States. 20 years old. That is

:42:16.:42:25.

Kiprop. Very tall figure. Nicer Elliot Giles to share a lean with

:42:26.:42:30.

the great man. Asbel Kiprop was the Olympic champion in Beijing's over

:42:31.:42:36.

1500 metres and the World Championship the last feedback

:42:37.:42:45.

times. And Adam Chris Scott. Great a hundred metres runner. Very fast

:42:46.:42:57.

finisher. Erik Sowinski. Jake Wightman, the Dream Mile. It was

:42:58.:43:03.

such a high quality field that he defeated. That is why he is in prime

:43:04.:43:08.

position to go to the World Championships at 1500 metres. And

:43:09.:43:12.

Mark English from Ireland has been quick this season. It will be a

:43:13.:43:20.

quick race if the goal with the pacemaker. Bram Som. Elliot Giles

:43:21.:43:28.

looking for the qualifying time. What can they manage? The final of

:43:29.:43:36.

the men's 800 metres. Kyle Langford was disappointed in Birmingham, just

:43:37.:43:40.

outside the top two. And Andrew Osagie was in fifth place but he is

:43:41.:43:45.

better than that. All the main British protagonists in the 800

:43:46.:43:50.

metres are here. Bram Som reads them out. This is fascinating from a

:43:51.:43:54.

British point of view. Kyle Langford is pushed by English. On the

:43:55.:44:02.

outside, the tall figure of the three times world champion over 1500

:44:03.:44:10.

metres. Asbel Kiprop is moving. If the pace is 49 seconds, it is too

:44:11.:44:17.

fast for most of the field. Nigel Amos, the Olympic silver-medallist

:44:18.:44:23.

in second place. They are being sensible, not going with the

:44:24.:44:27.

pacemaker. Nigel Amos is capable of living with that but still quick for

:44:28.:44:32.

Nigel Amos. Asbel Kiprop in fourth place. The British contenders are

:44:33.:44:36.

doing what they have to do, hanging back. That is right. Can Nigel Amos

:44:37.:44:44.

do anything like he did previously in this stadium? Two races, one for

:44:45.:44:48.

selection for the British athletes. And the race at the front is

:44:49.:44:53.

different. Nigel Amos in front and Donavan Brazier as well as Asbel

:44:54.:45:00.

Kiprop. Nigel Amos stretching out his stride. Nigel Amos is coming

:45:01.:45:09.

away and looking good. He was the silver-medallist five years ago and

:45:10.:45:13.

might be a contender in three weeks. He will take the victory with a

:45:14.:45:22.

quick time. 1:43.19. The British athletes might of been dragged along

:45:23.:45:24.

for that qualifying time. That was great to see. Remember that

:45:25.:45:35.

great race we saw here against David Rudisha. David broke the world

:45:36.:45:41.

record and ran one of the great races of all time. The interesting

:45:42.:45:47.

thing from a British point of view, Elliot Gyles ran strongly, he

:45:48.:45:51.

qualified. Almost ran a personal best. Behind him, Kyle Langford has

:45:52.:45:56.

come through and he looks quick as well. We're watching Amos, a

:45:57.:46:00.

controlled athlete, the Olympic silver-medallist. At the same time,

:46:01.:46:05.

in third place, the tall figure of Asbel Kiprop. Amos looking good

:46:06.:46:09.

there, and that makes this an exciting return to form. Should be a

:46:10.:46:13.

great race in this stadium, maybe not like we had last time around,

:46:14.:46:19.

but interesting race. Elliot Gyles with a personal best, I'm pretty

:46:20.:46:24.

sure. It has just been confirmed. Elliot Gyles with a personal best.

:46:25.:46:28.

He has the qualifying standard and when he gets his breath back he will

:46:29.:46:34.

be chatting to fill. World leading time for Nijel Amos. That's the

:46:35.:46:41.

qualifying standard. Elliot Gyles will be here. Good race and good

:46:42.:46:44.

times from the British athletes. We can hear from a couple of them now.

:46:45.:46:52.

We will start with Nijel Amos. What a race that was, after all your

:46:53.:46:56.

injury problems it must delight you. Coming to this stadium, for me I

:46:57.:47:01.

just want to keep my moment to live here. Every time I step here don't

:47:02.:47:08.

want to change anything. You have been through some trouble sometimes.

:47:09.:47:12.

What's been the key in getting you back to this kind of form? I kept my

:47:13.:47:17.

faith, kept on praying and working hard and knowing one day things

:47:18.:47:21.

would come together. You had your Olympic silver here. We wish you

:47:22.:47:25.

well for the World Championships in a few weeks. Thank you. Elliot

:47:26.:47:33.

Gyles, a qualifying time and a personal best. You will definitely

:47:34.:47:39.

be on the team. It's great. I was some way back, and I thought I was

:47:40.:47:46.

in the place for a 39 five. It took me by surprise. A bit more

:47:47.:47:49.

experience and hopefully I can latch onto those guys and not try to push

:47:50.:47:55.

on when I felt the gap was made in the first lap and nowhere else. I

:47:56.:48:02.

need to learn a bit more. APB of 1.3 four. I don't know when I will wake

:48:03.:48:06.

up, it is I'm dreaming. I need to start winning and go from there.

:48:07.:48:11.

Well done on getting that time. We will see you back here soon. Guy

:48:12.:48:24.

Learmonth is here as well. Equally delighted, sharing the delight with

:48:25.:48:27.

your mate Elliot Giles. What's it like when you go to a race like

:48:28.:48:31.

this, a race within a race sometimes and you need to do a specific thing.

:48:32.:48:38.

I have never run these times before. I have lost my breath and voice, I

:48:39.:48:42.

apologise! Don't want to get too carried away. Felt good at 600,

:48:43.:48:46.

faded a little bit. Just hanging in. I knew it was quick, so gave it my

:48:47.:48:51.

all in the last hundred. Next time I will just keep progressing.

:48:52.:48:55.

Hopefully not on the door of 1.44 soon enough. It's a breakthrough and

:48:56.:49:01.

I will be back here next month. I'm over the moon. Maybe a bit quicker,

:49:02.:49:08.

but it's a huge lifetime best. I'm absolutely delighted. You are part

:49:09.:49:12.

of the record contingent from Scotland. We wish you well for

:49:13.:49:17.

London. I just want to say to my coach, Henry Gray, he's really

:49:18.:49:19.

believed in me in the last few years. There have been ups and downs

:49:20.:49:24.

and he stuck with me. And my little brother has been my pacemaker the

:49:25.:49:28.

whole year. Thank you so much. It's kind of cleared up some things, that

:49:29.:49:33.

race. We know Guy Learmonth and Elliot Giles definitely take the

:49:34.:49:37.

first two places because they were first and second but it leaves a

:49:38.:49:44.

selectors' headache. It's a selectors' nightmare. It's great for

:49:45.:49:47.

men's 800 metre running in Great Britain, four personal bests in that

:49:48.:49:56.

race. Elliot Giles, it's great for Guy Learmonth to pass the selector,

:49:57.:50:01.

but he was the last British racer across the line. The selectors have

:50:02.:50:07.

to pick from the youngster Kyle Langford coming through, who is

:50:08.:50:10.

scarily good but very erratic, and Andrew Osagie. It's the quickest men

:50:11.:50:20.

in the stadium today at the AA Anniversary Games who will be going

:50:21.:50:26.

next. We can cost a Steve Cram with news from the start line.

:50:27.:50:32.

COMMENTATOR: He will be wanting to show that the third spot should be

:50:33.:50:36.

his. Rhys Prescott was a surprise winner. James Dasaolu is here. CJ

:50:37.:50:43.

Ujah was very fast in the semifinal of the British Championships but

:50:44.:50:49.

didn't run. Adam Gemili is sitting in the wings. Who can take this and

:50:50.:51:05.

push their case here? James Dasaolu, quietly went about his business at

:51:06.:51:13.

the trials. I think he thought he would win but Prescott came through

:51:14.:51:20.

late. James Dasaolu is in the team. We have Beejay Lee, don't know too

:51:21.:51:25.

much about him, a new American name. Unlike Kim Collins, 41, who has been

:51:26.:51:31.

around for a long time. World champion of 2003 and still running

:51:32.:51:38.

fast. A very popular man. Richard Kilty, illness meant he missed a few

:51:39.:51:46.

weeks at an important part of the season but wants to stake a claim

:51:47.:51:54.

for a place in the relay squad. Harry was third at the championships

:51:55.:51:59.

himself individually. Again, an event where plenty of qualifiers,

:52:00.:52:06.

James Dasaolu, Prescott, they got their spots. CJ Ujah, who to be fair

:52:07.:52:11.

is having a very good year, very consistent on the Diamond League

:52:12.:52:13.

circuit as well. Pretty impressive in Rome. Second in the Oslo Diamond

:52:14.:52:19.

League. This is not a Diamond League event here. But he will want to win

:52:20.:52:29.

this, to be fair, CJ. He's in lane four.

:52:30.:52:39.

Well... Joel Fearon? We didn't mention him at the start. Had a

:52:40.:52:52.

cracking year last year. He will be the least disappointed not to make

:52:53.:52:56.

the team because he has other things to think about, the Winter Olympics

:52:57.:53:01.

coming up. He's part of the Bobsleigh squad. Colin, what about

:53:02.:53:08.

this, is it the far side? I couldn't see it. Kim Collins was rocking and

:53:09.:53:14.

rolling, not stable in the box in lane eight. Interesting to see what

:53:15.:53:22.

they say. Beejay Lee is just having a word with one of the starters

:53:23.:53:27.

marksmen. Being gas to get back quickly. At the moment there is no

:53:28.:53:31.

indication there will be a disqualification. But the Burchfield

:53:32.:53:37.

harrier, Joel Fearon, fifth that the British Championships, looking a

:53:38.:53:46.

little sheepish. If it's not a false start, we will see if we can get on

:53:47.:53:51.

with this. Just waiting to see. Which colour? I am teasing you a

:53:52.:53:59.

little bit, it will be the black and red will stop here we go. Colin is

:54:00.:54:06.

laughing. It's the card of doom, really. It is, but I think he knew

:54:07.:54:12.

anyway. Joel Fearon has already walked off. We have the American

:54:13.:54:23.

Brandon Carr is in round two. Then Harry and CJ Ujah, the British

:54:24.:54:32.

athletes. Isiah Young, James Tisolo, Beejay Lee, Kim Collins and Richard

:54:33.:54:33.

Kilty in his first race back. Harry gets out pretty well. CJ Ujah.

:54:34.:55:03.

Brandon Carr on the far side was quickest. It's going to be CJ. He

:55:04.:55:09.

gets it from James Dasaolu. That might be enough. You suspect that's

:55:10.:55:17.

just a continuation of the season for him. Consistent around the ten

:55:18.:55:21.

second mark. Would look to get sub ten with the wind slightly

:55:22.:55:25.

following, but good, solid, consistent 100 metre running from

:55:26.:55:29.

this man. We are not the selectors, but it makes it difficult for them

:55:30.:55:34.

to look anywhere else. I would say not to look further than this young

:55:35.:55:38.

man. He's had an exceptional year. Sometimes we get carried away with

:55:39.:55:42.

times. We think people should be under the ten second barrier, but

:55:43.:55:46.

ultimately the most important thing is to come to these big races and

:55:47.:55:50.

take the victories. And if you can win on the Diamond League circuit,

:55:51.:55:56.

people start to know your name. They recognise your performances, and

:55:57.:56:01.

they fear you. CJ is coming here, running consistently around the ten

:56:02.:56:06.

second mark. And he's taking the victories. Those are by far the most

:56:07.:56:10.

important things. It's nice to see him return from that little problem

:56:11.:56:14.

he had at the trials. He has put that behind him and I would say

:56:15.:56:18.

fingers crossed that's more than enough to impress the selectors.

:56:19.:56:29.

Harry faded a bit. James Dasaolu coming through strongly at the end.

:56:30.:56:35.

Good enough for second. He's running pretty consistently as well. I think

:56:36.:56:38.

you will be pretty happy with that performance. 10.06 coming up for

:56:39.:56:48.

him, a season's best. CJ coming through with another win of a good

:56:49.:56:52.

opposition and confirming his very good form. Just outside ten seconds.

:56:53.:57:00.

We will confirm the result... 10.02 equals his season's best. Harry in

:57:01.:57:05.

fourth. Richard Kilty on his comeback in seventh. Equalling the

:57:06.:57:11.

season 's best and taking the victory. No doubt you are heading to

:57:12.:57:15.

the World Championships. Hopefully, we will have to see. It was a nice

:57:16.:57:19.

race. Unfortunately I didn't get to race in the final. I would love to

:57:20.:57:27.

have raced in Birmingham. You were really disappointed not to be able

:57:28.:57:32.

to do that final. I was in fine shape. I wanted to come out there

:57:33.:57:36.

and hopefully grab a personal best. But there are bigger things that I

:57:37.:57:40.

can move towards. Last year you wanted to push hard in the semi. It

:57:41.:57:45.

replicates what you need to do in the World Championships. I have been

:57:46.:57:50.

running fast every round out this year. You need to do that. That's

:57:51.:57:53.

what we are getting in place and hopefully I can do it at the World

:57:54.:57:57.

Championships. It's showing. Every time you come out you hit your

:57:58.:58:00.

stride and get consistently fast times. He will go under ten again

:58:01.:58:06.

soon. Definitely. I didn't get a good start, but with a bit more

:58:07.:58:11.

sharpness in a few weeks. Very well done today CJ. We look forward to

:58:12.:58:19.

the World Championships. A second attempt in the high jump.

:58:20.:58:25.

Comfortable clearance, one of the most dominant, as we were saying

:58:26.:58:29.

earlier, looking for another victory here. Unbeaten through the year.

:58:30.:58:34.

Good clearance at 1.97 to take her into the lead with daylight to

:58:35.:58:41.

spare. As you would expect when you jump two metres and six centimetres,

:58:42.:58:44.

fifth on the world all-time rankings. First round of the long

:58:45.:58:52.

jump for Spanovic of Serbia. Round one. Just shy of the seven-metre

:58:53.:59:02.

line. A little frown on her face. Is she OK? We saw her put together an

:59:03.:59:07.

amazing series at the European indoor Championships. Limping away

:59:08.:59:13.

from the first round, Spanovic. We will have a look at this. Tony, I

:59:14.:59:19.

don't know what to make of it. It's a long effort, but clearly not

:59:20.:59:24.

comfortable. We are seeing that from her expression as she comes out

:59:25.:59:28.

limping, holding herself down, possibly a problem with her ankle.

:59:29.:59:32.

Maybe that's why we haven't seen eight great deal of her this season.

:59:33.:59:36.

Still a season's best. We hope she's OK. Vashti Cunningham of the United

:59:37.:59:44.

States looking to go clear. Last chance, and does. Good high jump

:59:45.:59:50.

competition brewing up with the two main contenders going head to head

:59:51.:59:53.

now. Lasitskene and Vashti Cunningham. 19 years of age, third

:59:54.:00:01.

time of asking, showing competitive mettle. Good clearance at 1.97.

:00:02.:00:11.

Morgan Lake went out at 1.90. A solid week.

:00:12.:00:21.

These will be the athletes contending for medals at the world

:00:22.:00:32.

Championships. Over to the javelin. Sara Kolak was the surprise Olympic

:00:33.:00:38.

champion. She is over 65 metres comfortably. She has had a good

:00:39.:00:44.

week. She had a personal best in Switzerland a few days ago. 68.43.

:00:45.:00:54.

Her left foot strikes down hard on solid. The Olympic champion has

:00:55.:00:59.

found a groove. Good timing after her surprise when last year, putting

:01:00.:01:05.

together a textbook season. Timing her run into the World Championships

:01:06.:01:10.

perfectly. That is close to 70 metres. Waiting for this distance to

:01:11.:01:25.

come up. It is 67.83. It takes the lead. Jazmin Sawyers in the long

:01:26.:01:35.

jump. Into the third roundabout. For best so far of 6.39. That is in last

:01:36.:01:44.

place. She needs lots more. She looked to be laboured on the

:01:45.:01:50.

approach. Not quite comfortable. It is kind of the way that she jumps.

:01:51.:01:57.

She comes in that pays. As soon as hush shin becomes vertical, she

:01:58.:02:02.

becomes vertical. She goes up and drops short. She needs to have a

:02:03.:02:06.

flat take-off and to carry her speed. 6.44. The final of the

:02:07.:02:19.

women's 100-metre hurdles. This is an example of the strength of depth

:02:20.:02:23.

of the Americans. There are six Americans in the final. That is Miya

:02:24.:02:30.

Ali. Silver-medallist last year at in Brazil. Sally Pearson. Gold here

:02:31.:02:39.

five years ago. She has had injuries over the last couple of years. She

:02:40.:02:43.

had a terrible fall in Rome where she injured her wrist. And then

:02:44.:02:52.

hamstring problems. Kendra Harrison took the world record of the

:02:53.:02:55.

Bulgarian but missed out on the World Championships. Jasmin Stowers

:02:56.:03:01.

was just eighth in the US Championships and she missed out on

:03:02.:03:07.

the Olympics as well. Christina Manning, third in the US trials. She

:03:08.:03:13.

will be heard any few weeks' time. But Sharika Nelvis will not. 12.53

:03:14.:03:25.

this season as her best time. The Dane Vilas from the Netherlands. She

:03:26.:03:32.

has got heptathlon experience. -- Nadine Visser. For her to make the

:03:33.:03:42.

final was something of an achievement here. Six Americans, one

:03:43.:03:48.

that Norwegian, the Australian Sally Pearson and Nadine Broersen from the

:03:49.:03:49.

Netherlands. Harrison was in lean six when she

:03:50.:04:00.

set the world record last year. How fast can Harrison go is the

:04:01.:04:09.

question here. Sally Pearson, what a run. Dragging

:04:10.:04:44.

that out from her memories of days gone by. That was Sally Pearson not

:04:45.:04:49.

quite back to her very best but what a run from the Australian to give

:04:50.:04:54.

Harrison quite a raise. Kendra Harrison is the winner again. 12.39,

:04:55.:05:01.

she will be the woman to beat at the World Championships. Great race.

:05:02.:05:08.

Looking down on the track, that is Jasmin Stowers who crashed into the

:05:09.:05:12.

barriers at the back end of the race. These women run so quickly, it

:05:13.:05:17.

is unforgiving, you just have to clip it and that throws you

:05:18.:05:23.

sideways. Sally has sprinted quite nicely already, 11.25, this year.

:05:24.:05:32.

She lost some of her technical ability at the back end of the grace

:05:33.:05:38.

which makes a big difference in terms of performance. That was a 12

:05:39.:05:44.

point four performance from Sally Pearson. Harrison clattered one of

:05:45.:05:53.

the barriers in the middle of the race. She battled to get back into

:05:54.:05:56.

it. She could feel the presence of Sally Pearson but would not get --

:05:57.:06:09.

let's Sally get past a shoulder. Harrison ran smoothly. Great run

:06:10.:06:15.

from Sally Pearson. Harrison clattered into that barrier. She

:06:16.:06:20.

dropped off the side of the hurdle. She still maintained her poise and

:06:21.:06:24.

belief that she can get back into the race. Focus again and

:06:25.:06:30.

concentrate. That was an ugly way for Jasmin Stowers to finish and she

:06:31.:06:33.

smashed into the floor. That was a terrible fall. Harrelson taking the

:06:34.:06:40.

victory ahead of the season 's best for Sally Pearson. Sally told me

:06:41.:06:50.

that she has to -- often catch a flight. Congratulations on this

:06:51.:06:55.

return to form for you. I cannot believe it. I knew I was in good

:06:56.:07:01.

shape when I ran 11.2 if you weeks ago in the 100 metres. I was trying

:07:02.:07:08.

to get my rhythm right. Kendra Harrison has done amazing things.

:07:09.:07:15.

And she has put the belief back into our bed for the females. I am

:07:16.:07:18.

excited that I have been able to prove to myself watch it I am in.

:07:19.:07:24.

And you have a chance to get back here for the World Championships,

:07:25.:07:28.

the place where you won the gold medal for Australia. England is

:07:29.:07:31.

special for me. Not just because of the Olympics but I am welcome, my

:07:32.:07:36.

family is here and they get to see me run. I am just so happy. You

:07:37.:07:42.

deserve to be happy. Go catch your flight. Thank you to Sally. She was

:07:43.:07:48.

very generous to you. She is a great inspiration for you, you are taking

:07:49.:07:55.

the sport to new heights? She pushed me as much as I pushed her. I hit a

:07:56.:07:58.

few barriers. I could feel her next to me so we both gave all we had.

:07:59.:08:03.

What is it like to be in the place where you set the world record and

:08:04.:08:08.

you have 121 in a row since then. I am blessed to be back. To have an

:08:09.:08:13.

injury one month ago and to be on such a fast track. And about in such

:08:14.:08:20.

great plans. I am so excited, my second World Championships. I am

:08:21.:08:24.

going to give everything I have. Good luck for the World

:08:25.:08:29.

Championships. COMMENTATOR: Good win for Kendra Harrison. Good news but

:08:30.:08:34.

that -- Jasmin Stowers after that fall at the last barrier is OK.

:08:35.:08:42.

Mariya Lasitskene, the Russian, she has one file at this height of two

:08:43.:08:50.

metres. She has got it. The only athlete in this field of a lifetime

:08:51.:08:56.

best higher than two metres. She has cleared two metres in 20

:08:57.:09:00.

competitions. No other athlete has done that hate this year. She

:09:01.:09:07.

continues her dominance. That secures the victory and another

:09:08.:09:11.

diamond lead when four Mariya Lasitskene. She is competing as a

:09:12.:09:16.

neutral athlete. She was cleared by the IAAF to compete this year.

:09:17.:09:27.

Vashti Cunningham for a lifetime best by one centimetre. She got too

:09:28.:09:32.

close to the bar and had no space. She hands of the victory to Mariya

:09:33.:09:38.

Lasitskene. She has a poker as ever. That is her celebrating. Cunningham

:09:39.:09:46.

in second place, 1.97, she is rounding into good shape as well.

:09:47.:09:59.

Last round of the javelin. The lead for the Olympic champion, Sara

:10:00.:10:04.

Kolak. The previous Olympic champion in the last round has really let

:10:05.:10:08.

loose. That is a big role. She knows it. She is appreciative of some

:10:09.:10:20.

support here, Barbaro spor tag of, champion here five years ago. --

:10:21.:10:27.

Barbara spor took over. That is how to do it. She has a six feet, two

:10:28.:10:41.

inches frame. 72.28, not quite out to that distance. It is a confidence

:10:42.:10:46.

booster going into the World Championships. 68.2 six. She takes

:10:47.:10:56.

the lead. Back to this long jump competition. We saw a Ivana Spanovic

:10:57.:11:08.

retire, she was frowning. Johnson-Thompson had 6.61 and a and

:11:09.:11:15.

then she had two Phil attempts. She was far beyond the board. She is

:11:16.:11:24.

only long jumping this afternoon after the sprint hurdles. Fourth

:11:25.:11:34.

round for Johnson-Thompson. Again the undercarriage coming down early.

:11:35.:11:39.

I think so. She did not really have the speed. Following two fouls,

:11:40.:11:46.

where she struggled with the runway, she is getting back on the board.

:11:47.:11:51.

She still has 20 centimetres to spare and that would relate to 60

:11:52.:11:58.

points in the heptathlon. It is about getting the run we acted it.

:11:59.:12:02.

This is a good points scoring event for Johnson-Thompson. This and the

:12:03.:12:12.

high jump. 6.47, just behind her first effort. 6.61 is her best

:12:13.:12:19.

effort so far. GABBY: this is to update June that

:12:20.:12:24.

Jasmin Stowers did get up and walked off the track. She took a nasty fall

:12:25.:12:29.

and that 100 metre hurdles race. She looked like she had given herself a

:12:30.:12:35.

nasty hit to the head. I am sure the medical team are checking over but

:12:36.:12:39.

it is great to see her walking off. Let us get down to the track. We

:12:40.:12:44.

have the men's 110 metre hurdles final. COMMENTATOR:. A Leighs Mallet

:12:45.:12:54.

is a very popular figure. -- Aries Merritt. Devon Allen, twice the US

:12:55.:13:08.

collegiate champion. Jihadi false start in Paris in the diamond lead.

:13:09.:13:13.

He was disqualified. -- he had a false start. David Aldridge takes

:13:14.:13:29.

the applause of the crowd. Shane Brathwaite of the -- of Barbados.

:13:30.:13:37.

And Jarret Eaton of the United States. There are some absentees.

:13:38.:13:42.

The US champion did not make it through. You're missing McLeod.

:13:43.:13:52.

Otago as well. The field is weakened. It is a chance for David

:13:53.:13:58.

Domej is to show what he can do. Aries Merritt not quite back to his

:13:59.:14:02.

best. The best that he had in 2012, he was outstanding.

:14:03.:14:58.

13.11. Aries Merritt looking good. He knows he has run quicker in the

:14:59.:15:04.

past but it is good to see him winning again and smiling again. He

:15:05.:15:08.

will challenge at the World Championships. There are some big

:15:09.:15:17.

names messing. 13.09, it was rounded down. He will be a contender in the

:15:18.:15:20.

World Championships. He knows how to win. This was the

:15:21.:15:30.

home of his victory at the Olympics. Flawless performance from him. All

:15:31.:15:37.

Aries Merritt needs to do is concentrate in that final when it

:15:38.:15:42.

comes to the World Championships, because he makes very little mistake

:15:43.:15:45.

is. When it comes to the backend of the race on the pressure is on, if

:15:46.:15:50.

you can keep your technique solid, you will have a good opportunity.

:15:51.:15:54.

Again, the first barrier was the undoing of David Omoregie. From then

:15:55.:16:02.

on he was chasing the race. Far too much to do. He will be disappointed

:16:03.:16:06.

with that. He would love to be in a race like this and be competitive.

:16:07.:16:11.

He has the capability and talent. Smashed the first hurdle and tipped

:16:12.:16:16.

him all over the shop. He spent his whole time recovering instead of

:16:17.:16:19.

focusing on the barriers he was going to approach next. A complete

:16:20.:16:24.

contrast to Aries Merritt, who was flawless in his performance. David

:16:25.:16:33.

Omoregie looking elsewhere. There is the result, Aries Merritt with a

:16:34.:16:41.

season's best to take the victory. This must conjure up so many

:16:42.:16:45.

fantastic memories every time you step on this track. Of course it

:16:46.:16:49.

does, I won Olympic gold in 2012 here. I couldn't be more thankful to

:16:50.:16:56.

be running here at this time. You picked in 2012. You've had more than

:16:57.:16:59.

your ups and downs on the way back. Only a couple of years since major

:17:00.:17:04.

surgery. Here you are with a major contender for gold. There are a lot

:17:05.:17:10.

of great athletes out there now. Me running in 12.80 has raised the

:17:11.:17:13.

standards. A lot more people are running 12 and 13.0, but I'm really

:17:14.:17:18.

confident in my training and we are picking at the right time. We will

:17:19.:17:26.

have six weeks of speed work by the time we come back for the World

:17:27.:17:31.

Championships. We will see if Omar McLeod is back for Jamaica. He's had

:17:32.:17:35.

an injury problem that should be fine. Do you see it as the two of

:17:36.:17:39.

you going head to head? Of course, he's an amazing athlete and very

:17:40.:17:43.

fast on the flat. He's switched coaches, working on his technique.

:17:44.:17:49.

He will be a major contender, as is everybody else. Andrea Pozzi is

:17:50.:17:54.

running fast, Lee Valley of Jamaica is running fast. -- Levi of Jamaica.

:17:55.:18:04.

Next up on the track is the women's mile. Laura Muir is going for a

:18:05.:18:09.

British record that is held by Zola Budd. The 1500 metre record holder,

:18:10.:18:14.

got that from Kelly Holmes last year. European indoor 3,000-metre

:18:15.:18:19.

record holder. Can she get this today in preparation for the Worlds,

:18:20.:18:24.

Paula? She's definitely capable of it. She will undoubtedly have

:18:25.:18:30.

watched Dibaba run quick plastic. That would be in her sights as well.

:18:31.:18:35.

But she has Jenny Meadows pacemaking. Laura doesn't really

:18:36.:18:39.

need a pacemaker, she is capable of pushing herself hard on her own, but

:18:40.:18:43.

she has Jenny there. Watch out for Jenny Simpson and Kate Grace as

:18:44.:18:48.

well. She ran a quick 800 metres in the week. Talking about doubling up

:18:49.:18:57.

in London. But with the 1500. Yes. This promises to be competitive with

:18:58.:19:02.

Jenny Simpson in there looking for a US mile record as well perhaps.

:19:03.:19:08.

Steve Cram. COMMENTATOR: There might be a few national records because

:19:09.:19:11.

the mile isn't run that often these days. I might be right thinking

:19:12.:19:15.

Paula was in the race when the record was broken. I hope I'm right.

:19:16.:19:21.

Laura Muir has it. The stage is set, certainly from a British

:19:22.:19:28.

perspective. I think Hellen Obiri, the Kenyan in good form, she will be

:19:29.:19:37.

the one to watch. She is a very good 1500 metre runner and in good form

:19:38.:19:40.

this year, Olympic silver-medallist at the 5000. The race is set up for

:19:41.:19:48.

Laura Muir. In Lausanne, Dibaba wanted to go out really hard and

:19:49.:19:52.

Laura Muir panicked about what she wanted to do. I think she wants to

:19:53.:20:01.

come home strong and go out more sensible. The record held by Zola

:20:02.:20:10.

Budd, 4.17, point 57. Not many women running under 4.20, so it would be a

:20:11.:20:18.

really good record. Anything in the 4.16 range would break the British

:20:19.:20:21.

record and that would be a good performance from Laura Muir. Given

:20:22.:20:24.

the 800-metre time she had the other day, she must be full of confidence.

:20:25.:20:32.

An injury scare after running in Eugene and having a couple of weeks

:20:33.:20:36.

off. But came fully back into training. Didn't have to hang around

:20:37.:20:40.

to pick up. We saw evidence that the other night. Laura Muir set to go

:20:41.:20:43.

with a host of other British athletes. Laura Weightman guaranteed

:20:44.:20:52.

her spot and Jessica Judd also in the team. One other spot is

:20:53.:20:57.

available. Sarah McDonald has decided not to come to this. She was

:20:58.:21:01.

third at the British Championships. We have an embarrassment of those

:21:02.:21:07.

doing qualifying times, including Melissa Courtney and Kate Snowden.

:21:08.:21:12.

They will hope they can do something special following Laura Muir. Laura

:21:13.:21:18.

Muir pre-selected as the Diamond League champion. And what a

:21:19.:21:22.

reception for Laura Muir. Fast becoming a big star of British

:21:23.:21:27.

athletics. Jess Judd and Laura Weightman joining her in the team.

:21:28.:21:33.

Helen O'Meara E will be there as well, the Olympic silver-medallist

:21:34.:21:43.

at 5000 metres. -- Hellen Obiri. The former world champion Jenny Simpson,

:21:44.:21:46.

she ran so well in Rio to come away with bronze. Laura Muir and Laura

:21:47.:21:58.

Weightman both in that final. Katie Snowden wanting to go out quicker if

:21:59.:22:05.

she can. It's a mile, not 1500 metres, but the 1500 metre time will

:22:06.:22:11.

be taken. There is a photo finish cell 90 metres from the finishing

:22:12.:22:15.

line up the home straight. Here we go with the mile. Laura Muir going

:22:16.:22:19.

for the British record. Deep breath...

:22:20.:22:31.

It's rarely run these days for the women, but Jenny Meadows knows what

:22:32.:22:37.

she's doing. Laura Muir will not hang around, slotting in straight

:22:38.:22:42.

behind. We expect a decent pace, Brendan, nice and even, that's

:22:43.:22:45.

what's required. And they're looking for a strong performance from Laura

:22:46.:22:49.

in the last 500 metres. Jenny Meadows knows what to do, and Laura

:22:50.:22:53.

Muir knows what she wants to do, getting right behind her, get in her

:22:54.:22:57.

slipstream and get as close as she possibly can. Getting to an even

:22:58.:23:02.

pace, a hard run race. Right behind her you have the strength of Kenya

:23:03.:23:09.

and then Laura Weightman and Jess Judd. All be protagonists, the

:23:10.:23:13.

athletes you mentioned, apart from Jenny Simpson, laying it down. This

:23:14.:23:19.

is a record attempt. Hellen Obiri is following Laura Muir, that's the

:23:20.:23:24.

right place for her to be. Her strength will tell in the later

:23:25.:23:34.

stages. You have to have yards, the old imperial measurements. It's a

:23:35.:23:39.

tad quicker than what was asked. You can see why the rest of the field

:23:40.:23:43.

were just behind. Jenny just going a little bit quick. 62.3 for the first

:23:44.:23:51.

400 metres. Laura Muir looking strong, but she must have been

:23:52.:23:55.

really excited the other night. She said she wanted to run a two minute

:23:56.:24:00.

800 metres and ran 1.58 and in the process she beat a fellow

:24:01.:24:07.

Scotswoman. Lynsey Sharp. That will give her confidence. Looking at the

:24:08.:24:11.

range of her performances, under two minutes at the 800, under four

:24:12.:24:18.

minutes for the 1500. No British athlete has ever run strength over

:24:19.:24:26.

that range, 800 to 5000, she could be the new superstar of British

:24:27.:24:29.

athletics. She has a few more weeks of training to prove it and get

:24:30.:24:34.

ready. Laura Muir following Jenny Meadows, who will probably step off

:24:35.:24:39.

shortly. Hellen Obiri has not been more than half a metre behind. Peter

:24:40.:24:46.

Grace has moved into third. Laura Weightman up to fourth. Garcia is

:24:47.:24:55.

also moving up. They slowed down on the second lap, so I think Laura

:24:56.:24:59.

needs to gather. She knows Hellen Obiri will keep the pressure on, but

:25:00.:25:02.

make sure you have something for the final lap. The record is still on.

:25:03.:25:07.

That's the position a true, strong, confident distance runner likes to

:25:08.:25:12.

take. British distance runners have often run like this. But she knows

:25:13.:25:16.

it's her against the clock. She has the Olympic silver-medallist behind

:25:17.:25:19.

her, tracking her every inch of the way. Laura putting a loss of

:25:20.:25:24.

pressure on herself. Hellen Obiri closes the gap. She couldn't have

:25:25.:25:29.

asked for a better pacemaker. Laura Muir is out there pushing along.

:25:30.:25:35.

Hellen Obiri tracking her. There is a gap back to Kate Grace, Simpson,

:25:36.:25:42.

Laura Weightman. They have probably gone through 400 to go, around 3.30,

:25:43.:25:53.

a big last lap needed, but she has Hellen Obiri to content with. She

:25:54.:25:57.

has Hellen Obiri and the final lap and the place to contend with, but

:25:58.:26:01.

she is trying to do it the hard way, trying to do it from the front,

:26:02.:26:05.

trying to do it by wearing down the opposition as well as trying to run

:26:06.:26:09.

quick. A fascinating race, Steve. Laura Muir at the front, gritting

:26:10.:26:13.

her teeth with Hellen Obiri sitting where she has for the whole race

:26:14.:26:24.

behind her. Laura Muir at the moment, she has to find something in

:26:25.:26:27.

the home straight. This is a battle she will want to win because Hellen

:26:28.:26:30.

Obiri is moving on to her shoulder. What does she have? Hellen Obiri has

:26:31.:26:34.

been in superb form this year and showing it here. Hellen Obiri is

:26:35.:26:39.

awake and gone. Laura Muir fighting for the record still. But Hellen

:26:40.:26:43.

Obiri showing why she will be one of the favourites for the World

:26:44.:26:47.

Championships. I think Laura will be just outside the record. That was an

:26:48.:26:59.

indication for Laura Muir of what will happen, and bear in mind this

:27:00.:27:07.

woman will race the 5000 metres. Face has broken the Kenyan record by

:27:08.:27:14.

a couple of tenths. She had the mile record for Kenya. It'll be a new

:27:15.:27:19.

national record for Hellen Obiri. Laura Muir the British record. Winny

:27:20.:27:33.

Chebet, all of them getting dragged round in good times. But if Laura

:27:34.:27:39.

Muir didn't know beforehand, she will know how hard it will be now.

:27:40.:27:43.

That's not how to prepare for the World Championships. She rang brave,

:27:44.:27:47.

strongly, the second fastest time ever by a Briton over a mile, but

:27:48.:27:52.

she has laid it all out. She was the perfect pacemaker for Hellen Obiri,

:27:53.:27:56.

who couldn't believe her luck. She has a great athlete running the 1500

:27:57.:28:02.

metres, laying it down for her. She has followed, a class athlete,

:28:03.:28:04.

Olympic silver-medallist. She's going for the 5000 in a few weeks at

:28:05.:28:14.

the World Championships, as is Laura Muir. There's the warning. An

:28:15.:28:17.

athlete finishing on the up, Hellen Obiri, looking forward to the 5000

:28:18.:28:20.

in the World Championships. A class performance, running strongly,

:28:21.:28:23.

running well, and then Laura Muir battling in the finishing straight

:28:24.:28:25.

and now it's back to the drawing board, thinking again, this isn't

:28:26.:28:29.

the way you finish. You finish on the up going to a championship, she

:28:30.:28:33.

hasn't. She will be disappointed with that, but she is a strong,

:28:34.:28:38.

brave runner and athlete. Let's hope she can gather herself. She's

:28:39.:28:44.

downstairs talking to fill. Brendan saying you will be disappointed with

:28:45.:28:48.

that going to the World Championships. I'm actually pretty

:28:49.:28:54.

happy. I missed the record but it's a personal best for me. It's faster

:28:55.:29:00.

than my mile last year. I'm really happy. I think considering where I

:29:01.:29:05.

have been, I'm really happy with where I'm at. That's great to hear.

:29:06.:29:11.

Tell me about the race and how it unfolded from your perspective. I

:29:12.:29:15.

knew Jenny would do a good job so I stuck with her and try to push as

:29:16.:29:18.

hard as I could, but the last hundred metres, it was tough! But I

:29:19.:29:23.

love being out here. I got a great reception. You had in the taster

:29:24.:29:29.

with the crowd today. It will be more packed, the World Championships

:29:30.:29:34.

and they will be behind you. What's that like? The reception here is

:29:35.:29:40.

amazing. We can hear the crowd. It's so exciting for a month's time.

:29:41.:29:43.

Thank you for talking to us. Laura Weightman is here. Having seen

:29:44.:30:01.

Laura Muir taken out so hard, she said it was not bad, personal best.

:30:02.:30:08.

I felt really good. I just lost it a little bit. In the last bit of the

:30:09.:30:16.

last lap. It is nice to run confidently, being more aggressive

:30:17.:30:21.

in races, going out and see what I have got. Good to see you performing

:30:22.:30:24.

so well. We will see you back here soon.

:30:25.:30:31.

GABBY: that is Mo Farah about to run the final event on the track. The

:30:32.:30:38.

3000 metres. With the World Championships in mind, talking about

:30:39.:30:41.

preparation, what will Mo Farah want to get from this race? A victory,

:30:42.:30:47.

that is all he is looking for. He was disappointed with the 10,000

:30:48.:30:52.

metres, despite getting the victory. He felt he needed to add something

:30:53.:30:58.

in training for preparation. This is about ticking boxes. He will put in

:30:59.:31:03.

more training. Then he will see what he can do over 1500 metres. He

:31:04.:31:10.

always comes out on these big occasions, whether it is indoors,

:31:11.:31:15.

Olympic Games, World Championships. He gave a candid interview

:31:16.:31:18.

yesterday, stating he is not quite where he wants to be. Is that

:31:19.:31:26.

normal? Is it unfamiliar for him? I think it is normal for him. He wants

:31:27.:31:30.

to be absolutely ready and you can not be always ready. It is better

:31:31.:31:34.

for him to be chasing, at the same as Laura Muir, still something to

:31:35.:31:40.

add. Let us get over to Brendan and Steve Cram. COMMENTATOR: It might be

:31:41.:31:49.

the last race ahead of the World Championships for Mo Farah. He will

:31:50.:31:53.

be heading home tomorrow. He was the believe he could run in Monaco and

:31:54.:32:01.

get some speed work. He makes the task look very easy.

:32:02.:32:07.

APPLAUSE Is Mo Farah just once a good, solid

:32:08.:32:12.

performance in front of this home crowd. Get used to this atmosphere

:32:13.:32:21.

again. Andy Butcher, 40 years he had. We have seen the moustache!

:32:22.:32:35.

Keep working on it. Hassan Mead. The Spanish athlete, Adel Mechaal is

:32:36.:32:45.

having a very good season. Ryan Hill in the past has went quick. 7.30, it

:32:46.:32:54.

was last year. And Riley Masters on the inside. It is usually up to Mo

:32:55.:33:03.

Farah of showing he wants to put on. Adam Clarke does lots of peacemaking

:33:04.:33:08.

for Mo Farah ahead of championships. He will help with the pace. And then

:33:09.:33:16.

Reuben Bett take over. The men's 3000 metres, 7.5 laps of the track.

:33:17.:33:28.

It is the last June up for Mo ahead of the World Championships. Bringing

:33:29.:33:33.

in Brendan, what did you make of his 10,000 metre run? He went out with

:33:34.:33:38.

real intent but did not run as fast as he wanted to. It was a good

:33:39.:33:43.

victory when you look back it. You do not need a fast 10,000 metres on

:33:44.:33:49.

the build-up to a Championships, you want to do 10,000 time trials. Look

:33:50.:33:54.

at the difference between Mo and watching Laura Muir. Laura Muir set

:33:55.:34:02.

of every ounce of energy in the first couple of hundred metres. Mo

:34:03.:34:10.

has drifted to the back and that is because he is confident. There is a

:34:11.:34:14.

difference in the personality but it is a different approach. Mo appears

:34:15.:34:21.

to be relaxed. Early stages of the 3000 metres. Over to the long jump.

:34:22.:34:29.

It is the world and Olympic champion, Tianna Bartoletta. She is

:34:30.:34:34.

in third place. That looks to be around the seven-metre mark and if

:34:35.:34:38.

it is, it will take the lead in this fifth round. The jump of 6.88 by

:34:39.:34:48.

Ivana Spanovic in round two is the best so far. 6.71 is her best so

:34:49.:35:01.

far. She won the US trials. Tianna Bartoletta is looking to defend her

:35:02.:35:07.

world title. Waiting for her distance, it is 7.01, it is the

:35:08.:35:14.

meeting record and edit equals whole season 's best. Mo has got himself

:35:15.:35:20.

moving. Peace is keeping an eye on his team-mate, Andrew Butchart. His

:35:21.:35:29.

best is only 7.45, he ran that Blaha. There he is in the yellow

:35:30.:35:38.

shorts in fifth place. Andrew Butchart, he knows Mo well, the

:35:39.:35:46.

add-in training together. Andrew Butchart is a tough competitor and

:35:47.:35:50.

he will want to go quick today, give Mo something to think about. He was

:35:51.:35:56.

sixth in the Olympic Games. He is a confident young man, Andrew

:35:57.:36:01.

Butchart. He came of age in the Olympic Games last year. He was in

:36:02.:36:05.

contention with just over one lap to go. He should be in contention

:36:06.:36:11.

today. These are the sort of faces that Andrew Butchart should be

:36:12.:36:14.

competing in. And having the chance to run against Mo Farah, he will not

:36:15.:36:20.

get many more chances. What he should be doing is moving out and

:36:21.:36:26.

following Mo. Mo will provide the opportunity for him. He is stepping

:36:27.:36:30.

out on the shoulder of Mo Farah and getting next to him. Mo Farah is

:36:31.:36:35.

looking relaxed, at home in his favourite stadium. This is the last

:36:36.:36:40.

race we will see him in before the World Championships and the World

:36:41.:36:45.

Championships are the last time we will see him on the track. Just a

:36:46.:36:51.

couple of races for Mo. In his favourite stadium. He is relaxed on

:36:52.:36:54.

the middle, with Andrew Butchart on his soldier. The first 1000 metres

:36:55.:37:14.

is 2.32. We are running well under 7.40 pace. Going back into the pack

:37:15.:37:20.

is able me shall. They gather around Mo because he is

:37:21.:37:39.

the boss. If he moves then the move. The thing about Mo Farah, he is

:37:40.:37:45.

relaxing coming down the home straight. There are three laps to

:37:46.:37:52.

go, he is drifting out front. The code are being given something to

:37:53.:37:56.

shout about. The key for Andrew Butchart is to stay in the right

:37:57.:38:00.

possession. He does not need to be leading, he could be right beside

:38:01.:38:06.

Mo. With the sprint finish, Mo Farah knows he has the weapons. He has the

:38:07.:38:12.

code on his side. And he now needs to concentrate and make the best of

:38:13.:38:19.

this moment. The fourth lap was very slow, 65 seconds. That is why Andrew

:38:20.:38:22.

Butchart wants to push on. He did not want to see the chance of a good

:38:23.:38:29.

time slip away. Moving outside the 7.40 range now. Andrew Butchart

:38:30.:38:37.

said, I want to get moving, do not want to leave it to the kick.

:38:38.:38:41.

Kiplangat, the 18-year-old Kenyan moves up. There are good runners

:38:42.:38:51.

behind. They are on all -- now all in single file. Moving up to the

:38:52.:38:56.

shoulder of Mo Farah. Two laps to go. Andrew Butchart reading. Mo

:38:57.:39:02.

Farah enjoying the day out in London from second place. Andrew Butchart

:39:03.:39:07.

trying to impose himself on this race. I am enjoying watching him. He

:39:08.:39:13.

runs strongly from a long way out. He has made this break for home and

:39:14.:39:19.

have to hold it as long as he can. Mo is moving towards on the back

:39:20.:39:24.

straight. The beautiful sight of Mo in full flow, we will not see it

:39:25.:39:29.

many more times. We should enjoy it most we can see it. The greatest

:39:30.:39:35.

distance runner we have ever had. In my view, the greatest sportsman that

:39:36.:39:38.

Britain has ever had. On the shoulder of his team-mate. Andrew

:39:39.:39:44.

Butchart is doing his best to stretch everyone out. Mo Farah picks

:39:45.:39:59.

up and aid only child goes with. That was the 59th penultimate lap.

:40:00.:40:12.

Mo likes to go from a fair way out. Down the back straight, Mo Farah in

:40:13.:40:17.

the anniversary games with the crowd on his side. Watching everything

:40:18.:40:22.

that is going on and the weight of everything. Mo Farah with evident in

:40:23.:40:28.

-- with 200 metres to go and with Adel Mechaal behind him. These two

:40:29.:40:35.

are pulling away. Adel Mechaal has not been gotten rid of. Mo Farah

:40:36.:40:44.

kicks again. Huge egos. Mo Farah cheered on by this huge crowd. He is

:40:45.:40:51.

going to win by seven metres. He takes it at 7.35. Andrew Butchart

:40:52.:41:02.

held on for third place. We never surprised by that because that is

:41:03.:41:06.

what he does and what he can do. I think he will be pleased. That will

:41:07.:41:14.

blow away the cobwebs. 7.35 is well within his comfort zone. The last

:41:15.:41:19.

100 was very fast. Just what he needs before his last preparations

:41:20.:41:23.

ahead of the championships. Absolutely right. He told you

:41:24.:41:28.

earlier that that could be his last race before the championships

:41:29.:41:31.

because he needs more trading. When I look at that phrase, 55 for the

:41:32.:41:37.

last lap, Mo digging deep. Andrew Butchart recognising the master. I

:41:38.:41:43.

think Mo is right, I think he does need a little bit more. On the last

:41:44.:41:48.

lap, Mo Farah in a major championship, he has run faster than

:41:49.:41:52.

that before. Just put on the finishing touches. We do not need to

:41:53.:41:57.

see you running any more. We will wait until you come back to the

:41:58.:42:01.

Olympic Stadium. We will wait for that and look forward to that

:42:02.:42:06.

happening. Mo Farah in the full flow, brilliant finish and brilliant

:42:07.:42:10.

performance. A relaxed winning time. That is how to prepare for a major

:42:11.:42:15.

championships. He was under pressure and digging deep. Looking over his

:42:16.:42:20.

shoulder. Doing whatever he can. And then he decides, you will not beat

:42:21.:42:27.

me but he is flat out, absolutely flat out. He needs some more touches

:42:28.:42:32.

to his speed work. No more races are needed. We will look forward to

:42:33.:42:35.

seeing him in a few weeks' time. He will be happy, let us find out.

:42:36.:42:41.

Always great to see you performing so well in the Olympic Stadium. We

:42:42.:42:45.

will not see you many more times, how much did you relish it? It was

:42:46.:42:50.

amazing, thank you to the code. Great atmosphere. I love London and

:42:51.:42:55.

there is no place like home. Thank you to everybody who has came out to

:42:56.:42:58.

give me massive support. I love you all. I just need to get my head

:42:59.:43:05.

down, my phone off, focus on the race. That is what I enjoy, bracing

:43:06.:43:10.

and representing my country. Not other stuff. Talking about

:43:11.:43:15.

distractions, you had more like it this week, what is it like the view

:43:16.:43:19.

in the newspapers, doesn't distract you? No, not at all, I control my

:43:20.:43:26.

legs and what I do. I love my sport. I will never failed a test. People

:43:27.:43:33.

who know who I am, how hard I work. I do it year after year, I enjoyed

:43:34.:43:39.

it. There's not much more you can do apart from one and do what you love.

:43:40.:43:44.

I love being on the podium and feeding the national anthem, and

:43:45.:43:49.

making so many people happy and to be British. You always give back to

:43:50.:43:54.

the British crowd. We see you on the indoor track and also outdoors. You

:43:55.:43:59.

love it. I love what I do and I am going to enjoy it with a smile. That

:44:00.:44:04.

is all you can do, you can not worry about other stuff. With the World

:44:05.:44:07.

Championships coming up, you will get a taste of that. We had it in

:44:08.:44:14.

2012, it will be elected. It will be incredible, I am proud to be British

:44:15.:44:19.

and do it for my country, make so many people proud. Enjoyed it. I

:44:20.:44:31.

know that Mo Farah things you'll have to run a hard 10,000 metres in

:44:32.:44:35.

those championships. He thinks the Kenyan 's will take it too. He will

:44:36.:44:42.

go away to prepare for that. Lots of personal bests behind Mo Farah,

:44:43.:44:47.

including Andy Butcher, another big performance for heaven, that is a

:44:48.:44:48.

big chunk of his best. In the final round of the long jump

:44:49.:45:00.

competition. Katarina Johnson-Thompson, this looks better.

:45:01.:45:05.

Quicker on the approach, Tony. Much better on the approach and more

:45:06.:45:09.

accurate. Hit the board there. Even when you get hit the board, you get

:45:10.:45:16.

more recoil from it. It gives you more spring and it makes it easy to

:45:17.:45:26.

get off the top. Much better. 6.75 for Johnson-Thompson. That bodes

:45:27.:45:31.

well for the World Championships. Interesting, the second Briton this

:45:32.:45:33.

year who has jumped the horrifying distance. That's fantastic to see.

:45:34.:45:42.

Season's best for Johnson-Thompson, moving up to fourth place, as the

:45:43.:45:49.

graphic told us. Confirmation of the final results. Bartoletta is the

:45:50.:45:53.

only athlete beyond seven metres. Decent job from Johnson-Thompson,

:45:54.:45:59.

Lorraine Ugen and Jasmine Sawyers slightly disappointing. Mo Farah

:46:00.:46:12.

enjoying the celebrations. All the volunteers. Seb Coe, hopefully back

:46:13.:46:15.

for the World Championships where we will see Mo Farah hopefully win to

:46:16.:46:20.

gold medals. He has been presented with a piece of the track from 2012.

:46:21.:46:27.

Obviously a couple of very special nights in particular he had on that

:46:28.:46:31.

track. He's looking for a few more in about four weeks' time. You think

:46:32.:46:35.

at this stage of his career when he knows the end of the track is coming

:46:36.:46:38.

in the summer he will savour every moment. We heard in the postrace

:46:39.:46:42.

interview a heart on the sleeve Mo Farah. Very pumped up. He was very

:46:43.:46:48.

emotional. We saw that with David Weir earlier as well. As he nears

:46:49.:46:54.

the end of his career, if you are at the stage where Laura is at now...

:46:55.:47:05.

Laura Muir is in the studio, I should say. At the end you start to

:47:06.:47:10.

think I want to savour these moments a bit more. Take a bit more to

:47:11.:47:14.

remember with me. He has a piece of the track to remember 2012, as if he

:47:15.:47:19.

needs it, because I'm sure he will have it in his mind, first and

:47:20.:47:23.

foremost when he steps out here in a couple of weeks for the World

:47:24.:47:27.

Championships. We saw that transition in him last year, he was

:47:28.:47:31.

more relaxed, so tight. Paula is right, when you come to the end of

:47:32.:47:34.

your track career, because we know he's going to the roads, it's about

:47:35.:47:39.

saving those moments. So many of us get caught up in the moment. It's

:47:40.:47:43.

everything at that time. You have to remember that it's supposed to be

:47:44.:47:47.

fun as well. That's what he wants to remember, that he's having fun with

:47:48.:47:52.

it. It's beautiful to see so many team-mates, past and present, Derek

:47:53.:47:57.

Redmond. Lawrence Clarke is there. It shows you how much people have

:47:58.:48:01.

enjoyed and have embraced Mo Farah's journey as one of the greatest ever

:48:02.:48:06.

distance runners we have seen. He has been dominant on the global

:48:07.:48:10.

stage since his first global gold in 2011. Since then, eight years of

:48:11.:48:15.

continuously finishing first where it matters. How incredible it has

:48:16.:48:21.

been that his body has stayed fit, he has mentally been able to cope

:48:22.:48:26.

with the pressure. He has seen people try, the Kenyan assault as a

:48:27.:48:30.

trio trying to unbuckle him. Ethiopian attempts to push him out

:48:31.:48:35.

of his stride. America as well. And nobody has found a way through. Then

:48:36.:48:42.

it comes on a domestic level, he comes under attack today from

:48:43.:48:45.

somebody like Andrew Butchart who he has inspired to come through. A lot

:48:46.:48:49.

of the guys celebrating personal bests in that 3,000-metre race had

:48:50.:48:55.

to say thank you to Andrew Butchart for taking it on in the last three

:48:56.:49:00.

laps. And that's Andrew watching Mo Farah training, and not being afraid

:49:01.:49:04.

of it and trying to step up to that level. Not so much saucer and

:49:05.:49:08.

apprentice, but it's wonderful timing for their careers. Mo Farah

:49:09.:49:12.

moving on and Andrew thinking he can step up to take that mantle and take

:49:13.:49:18.

the baton. Laura Muir in the studio, congratulations on your race today.

:49:19.:49:23.

Watching this, what does it make you feel watching these scenes? It makes

:49:24.:49:28.

you proud. The team is amazing. We all get on so well and it's a great

:49:29.:49:34.

atmosphere. You can see there everybody is together supporting

:49:35.:49:38.

everyone. It's great to have that team morale when you go to the

:49:39.:49:42.

championships. The talk today was you were going for the British

:49:43.:49:46.

record. The pacemaking. Did the first lap feel a bit too hot for

:49:47.:49:52.

you? It's hard to look at it at the time, but looking at the splits now,

:49:53.:49:56.

the first lap was a little bit quick. My legs fell off in the last

:49:57.:50:01.

hundred metres. Saying that, it's a personal best on the mile I ran last

:50:02.:50:04.

year in Oslo. I'm going in that direction. I won last year having

:50:05.:50:12.

run a slower time. Having a couple of weeks out of your preparation

:50:13.:50:15.

with injury, that's always unsettling, but it doesn't seem to

:50:16.:50:18.

have thrown you off too much. What were you doing in those weeks rest

:50:19.:50:23.

in yellow working my backside off. I was in the pool for two weeks, but I

:50:24.:50:29.

was in the pool at least twice per day. I was in the gym, trying to

:50:30.:50:33.

keep my fitness up as much as possible. We were worried about the

:50:34.:50:37.

speed but luckily the 800 went pretty well. You know sadly what

:50:38.:50:42.

it's like to be in preparation and have it disrupted. What advice would

:50:43.:50:47.

you give Laura now for the next few weeks before the championships? I

:50:48.:50:50.

don't think she needs the advice from me. The big thing is when you

:50:51.:50:54.

have an injury like that and the injury is far enough away from the

:50:55.:50:57.

championships that it doesn't put it in danger but makes you appreciate

:50:58.:51:02.

you can be there and be running as well as you are, in two weeks you

:51:03.:51:05.

will have lost nothing, she will only have gained in the frustration

:51:06.:51:09.

at the injury and missing racing. And now getting back out racing.

:51:10.:51:13.

It's controlling all of that, not panicking and keep doing what she's

:51:14.:51:17.

doing. Are you still set on the double, or is that up in the air?

:51:18.:51:23.

Still set on it. The Hydro sessions are going really well. In good shape

:51:24.:51:28.

to do the two. Is Hellen Obiri going to be the main challenger? I think

:51:29.:51:34.

so this year. She looks really good. Over a short distance as well, her

:51:35.:51:42.

world times over five K. At this stage it's about not overcooking it.

:51:43.:51:46.

Clearly there has been the interruption but you have done the

:51:47.:51:49.

bulk of the good work. It's trusting in your ability at this stage and

:51:50.:51:53.

not overthinking it. I was lucky to have a solid winter and indoor

:51:54.:51:57.

season, not missing a day. We knew that was in the bank, so we had a

:51:58.:52:01.

couple of easy weeks before getting back onto it. My body is in good

:52:02.:52:04.

shape and its building on that in the next month. Also the

:52:05.:52:09.

preparations for this, a home championships, the likes of which

:52:10.:52:12.

you haven't experienced on that scale before. How does it feel in

:52:13.:52:17.

comparison to the build-up to Rio, are you noticing more intensity? I

:52:18.:52:22.

think so. You can't beat home championships, and a World

:52:23.:52:27.

Championships as well. I wasn't at London 2012, but watching it on

:52:28.:52:30.

television, you got a sense of the reception the athletes got. It's

:52:31.:52:34.

really exciting. I hate running against home athletes because they

:52:35.:52:37.

always pull it out of the bag. I think we will have some surprise

:52:38.:52:40.

performances. It's about looking to the championships, and who will be

:52:41.:52:44.

the backbone of the team, the people you look towards? You are definitely

:52:45.:52:48.

one of those people. I think it's real growth, and you have done your

:52:49.:52:55.

bit on social media. People get behind the athletes now because they

:52:56.:52:58.

are the stars of the future. Today a personal best for you and 4.18 in

:52:59.:53:03.

the mile. Earlier today, walking a mile on the track was Tom Bosworth,

:53:04.:53:07.

going for a British record, and he got a world record. He walks five

:53:08.:53:14.

minutes 31 for a mile. As somebody who just ran a mile, put that into

:53:15.:53:20.

context. I don't even... That is fast. I can't even put it into

:53:21.:53:27.

words. It's amazing. If I get a 5.30 mile, I think, that's fast. For him

:53:28.:53:32.

to walk that is amazing. Putting it into perspective, you have probably

:53:33.:53:35.

trained in the same altitude training camp where Tom has been.

:53:36.:53:39.

You will have been running around and a lot of athletes run on the

:53:40.:53:44.

grass inside the track. When the walkers do their speed work you are

:53:45.:53:47.

going as fast as them on their steady run. That's why it's one of

:53:48.:53:53.

my performances of the day. He was incredible. The crowd got a treat. I

:53:54.:53:59.

challenge you to try and run even a six minute mile. A great way to

:54:00.:54:04.

introduce walking to the Diamond League circuit as well. Hats off to

:54:05.:54:08.

the organisers who put a big step by putting walking on the track, and he

:54:09.:54:13.

delivered. He will be walking 20 kilometres in the World

:54:14.:54:15.

Championships. Normally walking further than the mile, but it must

:54:16.:54:20.

have put the idea in the organisers' minds, and it's a good way of

:54:21.:54:23.

bringing the walkers into the mainstream and not seeing it as a

:54:24.:54:26.

separate event. That's what's happening live right now.

:54:27.:54:31.

Celebrations going on down there. Mo Farah with all the team around him,

:54:32.:54:39.

all doing the Mo-bot. It's a swansong, a long swansong of his

:54:40.:54:42.

track career that we will enjoy over the next few weeks. He hasn't yet

:54:43.:54:46.

decided if he will run Monaco. He might do it before the Worlds, but

:54:47.:54:50.

he will certainly run on track in London for the last time during the

:54:51.:54:57.

Worlds. He might pop up there. Was that rude, Paula? I'm glad he

:54:58.:55:01.

decided the Mo-bot was his long-term celebration and not that. Denise.

:55:02.:55:07.

It's great scenes in the crowd. I think Mo Farah is enjoying it. What

:55:08.:55:17.

an ambassador he's been. As Denise has said, Tom Bosworth is the Muller

:55:18.:55:22.

performance... INAUDIBLE Hopefully we'll see a lot more of

:55:23.:55:27.

him in London. We have just under four weeks until the start of the

:55:28.:55:31.

championships, starting on Friday the 4th of August, three and a half

:55:32.:55:35.

weeks. What happens with you over that period of time, apart from

:55:36.:55:39.

wrapping yourself in cotton wool to stay safe? Pretty much. I have two

:55:40.:55:45.

races. I will have them and then race in Monaco as well. Then we will

:55:46.:55:50.

have a training camp before coming back to London. Thank you so much

:55:51.:55:56.

for coming to join us. Best of luck in the next few weeks for your final

:55:57.:56:00.

preparations. We are all really excited about what you can achieve

:56:01.:56:04.

in London. Great performances from British athletes here today,

:56:05.:56:09.

including Laura, Mo Farah, they are still out there lapping up the crowd

:56:10.:56:14.

adulation. He is the current double world champion, and over the years

:56:15.:56:18.

Great Britain have had so many fantastic golden World Championship

:56:19.:56:19.

winners. Steve Cram bleeding. He's got it.

:56:20.:56:30.

Three yards clear. He wins the World Championships. -- Steve Cram

:56:31.:56:35.

leading. How does it feel to be world champion? A little bit

:56:36.:56:38.

unbelievable. Daley Thompson is clear! I take great pride in my

:56:39.:56:43.

performance. I always want to improve.

:56:44.:56:50.

That's a very big throw, about 76.5 metres. Fatima Whitbread is the

:56:51.:56:54.

world champion. Liz McColgan, a mother in the last

:56:55.:57:06.

few months. This has been a display of confidence and courage and self

:57:07.:57:11.

belief. For me, David, that's the greatest run in the history of

:57:12.:57:15.

British distance running. Can Kriss Akabusi do it? And the American is

:57:16.:57:24.

beaten. Akabusi has made it. Gold for Britain. I had the chance, and I

:57:25.:57:30.

kicked their buts! Away first time. Colin Jackson at

:57:31.:57:44.

the first hurdle. Jackson going away. Jackson takes it. I make that

:57:45.:57:53.

a new world record for Colin Jackson. Linford Christie comes

:57:54.:57:55.

through. Jonathan in the first round. It's

:57:56.:58:07.

huge, massive. My goodness, that's fantastic. 18 metres 16. A world

:58:08.:58:18.

record for Great Britain and Jonathan Edwards. A tough act to

:58:19.:58:22.

follow, but he's done it again! Bear will be a big smile on his face any

:58:23.:58:27.

minute now. Jonathan Edwards has made history again!

:58:28.:58:35.

Can he hold it here? Colin Jackson as taken it at the Worlds. Jonathan

:58:36.:58:45.

Edwards, the world record-holder... That's a huge jump again. One of the

:58:46.:58:52.

longest jumps in history. Jonathan Edwards is the world champion. This

:58:53.:58:58.

is the moment Paula Radcliffe has waited so long for. It's going to be

:58:59.:59:02.

a gold medal for Great Britain. Paula Radcliffe becomes the world

:59:03.:59:09.

champion at last. Christine Ohuruogu coming through. Christine Ohuruogu

:59:10.:59:17.

with the gold! She is the world champion. Sensational story. It's

:59:18.:59:25.

you, you are the world champion, Christine Ohuruogu.

:59:26.:59:31.

Come on. Hop and step, oh yes! That could be the biggest jump of

:59:32.:59:37.

Phillips and those's career. Great Britain has found another

:59:38.:59:52.

star. The Gero from the city of steel. Here is the chance for

:59:53.:00:01.

agreeing to seal the moment. The winds. What a performance from Mo

:00:02.:00:14.

Farah. Mo Farah is going to get there. This is more domination for

:00:15.:00:23.

Mo Farah. He is the world champion. Christine is coming. She might just

:00:24.:00:32.

make it. She never gives up. I cannot believe it. Mo Farah is

:00:33.:00:38.

sprinting for gold. Mo Farah is going to get there again. Mo Farah

:00:39.:00:43.

wins it. Another incredible performance from Mo Farah.

:00:44.:00:53.

8.29 is his lead. Looking to extend it. That is big. 8.41. Greg

:00:54.:01:07.

Rutherford takes gold heard in the Bird's Nest. I cant believe it. They

:01:08.:01:12.

are not good enough, Mo Farah is best. Mo Farah is champion again.

:01:13.:01:21.

She storms pass the Canadian to win the 800 metres. Jessica Ennis-Hill

:01:22.:01:27.

is back on top of the world. They have got nothing for him, Mo Farah

:01:28.:01:34.

streaking away. To be able to continue and in the same category as

:01:35.:01:37.

so many legends, it is amazing. Wasn't that great to watch? The

:01:38.:01:49.

eagle eyed amongst you would recognise two Gold Medal that were

:01:50.:01:57.

not in there. 1997, because of drugs violations. And Jessica Ennis-Hill

:01:58.:02:02.

in 2011. Beware retrospectively awarded. We hope to see more Gold

:02:03.:02:09.

Medal appearances. That is across the BBC from Friday, the 4th of

:02:10.:02:14.

August. The Diamond League moves on next Sunday. That is repeated on

:02:15.:02:23.

July the 17th. And then the World Cup of rowing from Switzerland. And

:02:24.:02:34.

Wimbledon is back tomorrow. I am delighted to see that Katarina

:02:35.:02:37.

Johnson-Thompson has joined us in the studio. She was hurdling and

:02:38.:02:41.

long jumping today. You watch that with some smiles. I always love

:02:42.:02:48.

watching montages like that. My favourite thing to do is what people

:02:49.:02:55.

achieve their dream. We would love to see you adding to that montage in

:02:56.:02:59.

a few weeks' time. What did your performances today tell you about

:03:00.:03:07.

where you are? I am starting to come out of a training block. I was happy

:03:08.:03:11.

with my performances as a whole and I feel I am in a better place.

:03:12.:03:17.

Things were going well in training but unfortunately I could not show

:03:18.:03:22.

that today. Denise is raising her eyebrows. I am not sure I agree with

:03:23.:03:27.

you. I think that long jump was great. It would've been nice to see

:03:28.:03:32.

it earlier on in the competition. When you are working on lots of

:03:33.:03:36.

different things, you're still into a heavy block and have not tapered

:03:37.:03:41.

off, that is back to the old Katarina Johnson-Thompson, it must

:03:42.:03:46.

give you confidence. The long job is weird I need to go away and work on

:03:47.:03:50.

it. I did want to get that in the first three jumps. Because I got

:03:51.:03:58.

that end, I went for that. I was able to get the long jump in the

:03:59.:04:04.

seasons best in the sixth round. Let us have a look at your hurdles. Have

:04:05.:04:10.

you seen it back? Have a look and tell us about your forum. I got left

:04:11.:04:17.

in the blocks. I felt like I was floating up in the air. I was

:04:18.:04:26.

against the world-class athletes. It is not one of my stronger events. I

:04:27.:04:32.

feel like I am happy. You have to put yourself into different --

:04:33.:04:36.

difficult situations to become a better athlete. I feel so much more

:04:37.:04:42.

confident now going back on. That is the worst situation I could have put

:04:43.:04:47.

myself in. Heptathlon hurdles should be a breeze now. I watched you

:04:48.:04:52.

perform. What you said made sense. Heavy block of training but sure

:04:53.:04:58.

rhythm is there. That will come with your timing. As you get sharper, you

:04:59.:05:05.

will get lower and slicker over the barriers. You put yourself under a

:05:06.:05:08.

lot of pressure going into a true world-class field. You did not come

:05:09.:05:13.

out badly. You have learned a lot and you add in a good place,

:05:14.:05:21.

seriously. The long job at 6.75, make sure only the second British

:05:22.:05:25.

athlete to get the qualifying distance if you wanted to compete

:05:26.:05:33.

this year. Talk us through this. You could feel the wind as you were

:05:34.:05:43.

starting to hit this spot. You went on to the board very well. I am

:05:44.:05:52.

surprised. I always feel like I am faster than Outlook. Does help that

:05:53.:06:00.

you are nearly six feet tall? I am happy with that. Normally my feet

:06:01.:06:06.

land apart. I am happy with the long jump. That is a season 's best.

:06:07.:06:12.

Hopefully it can make the difference. Big changes in your life

:06:13.:06:18.

over the last 6-7 months. We have taken two -- taking yourself to

:06:19.:06:22.

France. A new training group and lifestyle. You look like you're

:06:23.:06:25.

enjoying the beauty of where you are. It looks like it has gone

:06:26.:06:35.

smoothly. How has it been for you? It'll never be completely smooth,

:06:36.:06:40.

according to a different country. It was difficult when I did not have an

:06:41.:06:44.

apartment. Everything has started coming together. The coaches

:06:45.:06:55.

understand me more now. How is your French? That is the question that

:06:56.:07:08.

everyone asks me. It is OK. I am doing French lessons now so everyone

:07:09.:07:13.

is happy about that. I do not want to speak to any French journalist

:07:14.:07:18.

because I am not at that level yet. What are the major differences in

:07:19.:07:23.

terms of your training setup. Visit the bulk of training you can do? It

:07:24.:07:28.

is completely different. I am toothing twice per day now. I am

:07:29.:07:34.

away from my family and my dogs. I do not go back to Liverpool which is

:07:35.:07:46.

sad for me. Everything is different. Hopefully it'll work out for me this

:07:47.:07:53.

year. I think what you have seen and heard from Mo, Katarina

:07:54.:07:59.

Johnson-Thompson, British athletics and how athletes operate. It is

:08:00.:08:03.

different. It is about being immersive and finding your way to

:08:04.:08:07.

the results you want. That takes courage, to move from your comfort

:08:08.:08:11.

zone, to immerse yourself in a foreign place. The USA is farther

:08:12.:08:24.

away. Did you take your dogs? I cannot take my dogs. It is the south

:08:25.:08:35.

of France. I live in an apartment. They would never make it up the

:08:36.:08:40.

stairs with the little legs. I have to carry my bicycle up three floors.

:08:41.:08:49.

Thank you for the moment. It is great to see you smiling. Good

:08:50.:08:54.

performance today. We will chat with Steve who is in the commentary box.

:08:55.:09:00.

Today, we set out today stating that there were lots of decisions yet to

:09:01.:09:04.

be made for British athletes in terms of qualification for the World

:09:05.:09:07.

Championship, what is being made clearer for you today? I think CJ

:09:08.:09:16.

did enough to cement his place. It is not good news for Adam Gemili. He

:09:17.:09:22.

might look at the result will fuse in the 200 metres, he could ask for

:09:23.:09:29.

more time. They may not be 100% convinced he has earned the third

:09:30.:09:36.

spot. Guy Learmonth, that was a surprise in the 800 metres. He

:09:37.:09:40.

sneaked through with the time. It reads Kyle Langford in the best

:09:41.:09:46.

place. For Andrew Osagie, running well, but two weeks any role he has

:09:47.:09:51.

been beaten by Kyle Langford. In the criteria, head to head is important.

:09:52.:09:59.

Jake Wightman is OK in the 1500. And Sarah McDonald should get the third

:10:00.:10:04.

spot. I am not a selector. It has become clearer. The other selectors

:10:05.:10:09.

will meet tomorrow and make an announcement on Tuesday. They will

:10:10.:10:12.

be if you place is open until the 24th of July. The million-dollar

:10:13.:10:19.

question, aside from Mo Farah, we should the viewing public expect

:10:20.:10:25.

British medals? Laura Muir, Katarina Johnson-Thompson sitting with you,

:10:26.:10:31.

plenty of medal chances. Mo is a standout in terms of a gold medal

:10:32.:10:36.

opportunity. The really races will be strong. You look at the people

:10:37.:10:40.

that Brendan was seeing a racing game coming into the world

:10:41.:10:43.

Championships. There are some open events. I am not sure about the

:10:44.:10:50.

women's pole vault, it could be tough for Holly. Robbie Grabarz and

:10:51.:10:55.

the high jump. People who can perform on the stage who are ranked

:10:56.:11:03.

7-10 can get into the medals. How many surprises in Brazil last year?

:11:04.:11:08.

I think 5-6 medals would be a good result. Any more than six people

:11:09.:11:13.

have done very well. Thank you very much, Steve. We were topping

:11:14.:11:17.

domestically. The bigger picture. Usain Bolt is going to be having his

:11:18.:11:24.

farewell on the track. And also Mo getting the adulation today. It will

:11:25.:11:28.

be an amazing atmosphere. What kind of shape is he on? For him, it is

:11:29.:11:35.

weird he just wants to be. He is always supping with a bad back and

:11:36.:11:48.

slight injuries. Everybody expects him to have a blistering performance

:11:49.:11:53.

and go sub ten seconds. All he does is pull themselves back into the

:11:54.:11:56.

lead and does enough to cross the line. As you see him go through the

:11:57.:12:01.

rounds in the World Championships, he will progress through and put his

:12:02.:12:05.

foot down in the final. I still favour him for the title. He said

:12:06.:12:10.

after this race, I know what I have to do, I have been here so many

:12:11.:12:14.

times before. If there is anybody that can say that with conviction it

:12:15.:12:18.

is him, and perform on the bigger stage. Are you targeting a medal? Of

:12:19.:12:25.

course. In London, all the British athletes should. That magic can

:12:26.:12:32.

happen. The athlete will come into the stadium, you will hear the crowd

:12:33.:12:37.

this weekend, then anything can happen. Thank you for joining us.

:12:38.:12:44.

Denise, great to see you. Colin as well. We will be back here on Friday

:12:45.:12:49.

the 4th of August for the start of the live coverage of the World

:12:50.:12:52.

Championships. We hope you will join us.

:12:53.:13:01.

COMMENTATOR: Usain Bolt has done it. It is a new British record. It is a

:13:02.:13:11.

mammoth job. A stunning performance. Sophie Hitchon, what an effort. It

:13:12.:13:19.

is going to be Dafne Schippers. That is huge. Johnson-Thompson. David

:13:20.:13:27.

Rudisha is going to win the world title. Beautiful jump. Laura Muir,

:13:28.:13:32.

she has smashed the British record. Mo Farah wins the gold.

:13:33.:13:48.

Join us live, and follow the world's wildest animals...

:13:49.:13:53.

..across the most challenging of terrains...

:13:54.:14:03.

..as they gather for nature's biggest summer feast.

:14:04.:14:10.

Experience one wild week of adventure.

:14:11.:14:13.

Gabby Logan introduces live coverage of the London Anniversary Games, where a host of British athletes compete in a star-studded field ahead of the World Championships.

Mo Farah returns to the scene of his double Olympic 2012 triumph to run in the 5,000m and 10,000m, and Katarina Johnson-Thompson and Greg Rutherford are also competing. Six-time Paralympic champion David Weir competes in his final race, fittingly in the stadium which saw him win a trio of gold medals at London 2012.
