Welcome to Glasgow for the indoor

Grand Prix, the first track and

0:00:110:00:15

field of 2018 and perfect

opportunity to see the best of

0:00:150:00:19

British and the world's athletes

ahead of the world indoor

0:00:190:00:23

Championships in Birmingham on

Thursday. According to a recent

0:00:230:00:27

poll, athletics was voted the most

exciting sport to watch by the

0:00:270:00:30

British public and we hope over the

next three and a half hours we can

0:00:300:00:34

prove them right.

0:00:340:00:35

Great support from the home crowd.

That is what the crowd wanted to

0:00:410:00:46

see.

0:00:460:00:51

see.

She has done it! That is

enormous!

0:00:530:00:59

Here comes Andrew Pozzi. Andrew

Pozzi just got there in the end.

0:01:000:01:09

That is a huge jump.

0:01:090:01:20

Really good performance from Dina

Asher-Smith.

Dafne Schippers for

0:01:220:01:32

gold.

No doubt about the gold medal,

it

0:01:320:01:36

it was

0:01:360:01:36

gold.

No doubt about the gold medal,

it was written for her.

Well,

0:01:360:01:39

British athletics billet as the best

indoor athletics meeting of the

0:01:390:01:42

world. We will see big names,

multiple medallists like Dafne

0:01:420:01:49

Schippers of Scotland and Adam

Gemili, and Dina Asher-Smith. The

0:01:490:01:54

crowds are out to see some of the

big names like Elaine Thompson of

0:01:540:02:00

Jamaica there, who has come to enjoy

the Glasgow sunshine. We should be

0:02:000:02:05

outside, it is glorious! But we are

glad we are here.

0:02:050:02:09

outside, it is glorious! But we are

glad we are here. Seven track and

0:02:090:02:12

field shows on the BBC. From

Thursday we switched to Birmingham

0:02:120:02:17

with the world Indoors and we will

have the morning and evening

0:02:170:02:21

sessions on BBC Two, kicking off on

Thursday and the 3000 metres.

0:02:210:02:27

sessions on BBC Two, kicking off on

Thursday and the 3000 metres.

0:02:270:02:29

What a place Scotland was to arrive

yesterday evening after the Calcutta

0:02:290:02:35

Cup victory between England and

Scotland in the Six Nations. Looking

0:02:350:02:40

forward to top class athletics here,

as are we, and likely to be reunited

0:02:400:02:45

with Denise Lewis and Paula

Radcliffe. Paula Radcliffe and I

0:02:450:02:50

have been out freezing watching

cross country over the winter.

0:02:500:02:54

Denise Lewis is back. An opportunity

this season, with it being a

0:02:540:03:00

Commonwealth and European year,

athletes who got close in London can

0:03:000:03:04

get themselves up there on the

podium.

It is time to make the

0:03:040:03:09

transition. The athletes, the likes

of Pozzi and Dina Asher-Smith,

0:03:090:03:16

although she was injured last year,

she will look at this year, as with

0:03:160:03:20

all the British athletes, as an

opportunity to take medals. They

0:03:200:03:24

have bites of the Cherry and rightly

so. They should expect to raise

0:03:240:03:29

their game in a year.

The

Commonwealth Games, European

0:03:290:03:35

Championships. Some athletes we will

see today we will not see in the

0:03:350:03:40

world indoors, such as Dina

Asher-Smith, and some have made the

0:03:400:03:43

decision to go to the Commonwealth

Games or not do the Commonwealth

0:03:430:03:46

Games. It must be difficult with a

big indoor championships like the

0:03:460:03:51

World Championships because the

Commonwealth Games is early.

It is a

0:03:510:03:56

tricky stepping stone, managing year

with the Commonwealth Games in April

0:03:560:04:00

in Brisbane. Athletes have to manage

that with the world indoors and it

0:04:000:04:05

is only five weeks between the two,

then having a break and coming back

0:04:050:04:11

for the European Championships later

in the summer. You have athletes

0:04:110:04:14

like Laura Muir who have decided to

stay, partly because of her studies,

0:04:140:04:20

and training, she has decided to

forget the call of games and get

0:04:200:04:24

ready for the European.

And we have

the champion who is going for it.

He

0:04:240:04:30

has time to make up after a nasty

injury that kept him out of

0:04:300:04:36

athletics, but he is in form and

looking good. Why not? If you plan

0:04:360:04:41

this, as Paula hit the nail on the

head, you have hurt to have a good

0:04:410:04:45

plan in place and know how you will

approach this year. Some people will

0:04:450:04:50

opt to do the world indoors. But he

has an opportunity to keep racing

0:04:500:04:55

because some people have had to

sacrifice may be a good body of work

0:04:550:05:05

in training to do all three

championships.

It is about getting

0:05:050:05:07

the balance right. Laura is going

for the double at the world indoors

0:05:070:05:10

because of her veterinary studies

that finished this year, it is

0:05:100:05:13

important championship to cement

that title.

To build on that. She

0:05:130:05:17

announced herself a little bit with

the European double she did

0:05:170:05:22

convincingly. It will not be easy

for the world indoors. It has been

0:05:220:05:28

hard, competing for Scotland is

important so it was hard to say no

0:05:280:05:32

to the Commonwealth Games. Now she

wants to focus and make it count at

0:05:320:05:36

the world indoors because then she

will have to concentrate on studies,

0:05:360:05:40

get that out of the way before

building up to the European

0:05:400:05:44

Championships.

Greg Rutherford we

did not see much of last year.

0:05:440:05:48

Pretty much broke the season. The

won the British Championships last

0:05:480:05:53

week and is here today.

0:05:530:05:59

week and is here today. You get the

sense he is feeling his way this

0:05:590:06:01

season. If things go well we will

probably see him in Birmingham?

I'm

0:06:010:06:05

surprised he is managing to compete

at the British trials. He had

0:06:050:06:09

surgery on his ankle and for the

hernia new Mac that have been a

0:06:090:06:14

problem. He is back in here so

experienced, he has to make the

0:06:140:06:19

right choices. He is 31. He knows if

he gets close to the eight metres

0:06:190:06:24

mark he is in with a chance. Both of

the guys have jumped further than

0:06:240:06:30

him this season but he thinks, if I

am fit, anything can happen. He is

0:06:300:06:37

not intimidated. He knows if he is

fit and well he can surprise.

On the

0:06:370:06:42

global stage, he is not here today

but will be in Birmingham, Kristin

0:06:420:06:47

Coleman, just got a new world record

in the 60 metres. 6.34, smashing

0:06:470:06:53

Maurice Greene's world records so a

mouthwatering prospect.

It could be

0:06:530:07:00

incredible. I will not say it will

be the race of the tournament but it

0:07:000:07:05

is cracking. He is in fine form but

can he deliver when it matters?

In a

0:07:050:07:11

way, what happened in a metres in

London overshadowed his performance,

0:07:110:07:15

the headlines went other waves. He

is one of those who could be on the

0:07:150:07:23

global stage, replacing the likes of

Usain Bolt, Mo Farah.

He is in the

0:07:230:07:30

frame. A lot of people are ready to

step up and he is putting himself

0:07:300:07:34

forward and we have to underline he

ran that slightly at altitude in

0:07:340:07:40

Albuquerque. The times can be

quicker slightly for sprint at

0:07:400:07:44

altitude so it will be interesting

in Birmingham to see how it

0:07:440:07:48

translates.

Birmingham is not very

hilly!

0:07:480:07:52

translates.

Birmingham is not very

hilly! OK, this is how the afternoon

0:07:520:07:54

is going to shape up. The heats of

the 60 metres coming up with their

0:07:540:08:02

and their 400 metres with Doyle. Tom

Bosworth back in action. We will see

0:08:020:08:09

the undisputed world number one in

the high jump and we have heats and

0:08:090:08:14

a final in men's and within's 60

metres flat. The women's event

0:08:140:08:21

high-class with Dafne Schippers and

Dina Asher-Smith and Elaine

0:08:210:08:23

Thompson. Andy Pozzi is going over

the hurdles and after the finals of

0:08:230:08:33

the 60 metres, home favourite Lynsey

Sharp closes the meeting in the 800

0:08:330:08:36

metres. Next up, out on the track

for commentary. And there is the

0:08:360:08:49

athlete who won the US trials. I

will say hello to Steve Backley,

0:08:490:08:57

Kathleen Mary, Colin Jackson and

Andrew Cotter. COMMENTATOR: An

0:08:570:09:03

interesting day yesterday and a

great afternoon of athletics to look

0:09:030:09:07

forward to. This is the start list,

the first of two heats in their

0:09:070:09:13

women's 60 metres hurdles.

0:09:130:09:22

women's 60 metres hurdles. Marilyn

Nwawulor one of two British

0:09:220:09:27

representatives at the world

indoors.

0:09:270:09:32

indoors. She ran 8.13 to get the

qualifying standard. Raven Clay we

0:09:320:09:40

have talked about strength in depth

in American women's hurdling. Raven

0:09:400:09:47

Clay is not the finest of them but

still very strong. Megan Simons,

0:09:470:09:52

Jamaican champion a couple of years

ago, coached by Stephen Francis.

0:09:520:09:59

Owens, seventh in the US indoor

final. You think seventh but in the

0:09:590:10:04

US championships that is an

achievement. 7.94 she ran in

0:10:040:10:08

Albuquerque. And the US champion,

cherie canal this -- Sharika Nelvis.

0:10:080:10:24

And Isabel Pedersen. And Lindsey

Lindley of Nigeria, now an American

0:10:250:10:33

who runs for Nigeria. She ran in the

indoor meeting at Athlone recently

0:10:330:10:39

and won.

Three go through automatically from

0:10:390:10:45

the two heats and then the two

fastest losers, to the final, at

0:10:450:10:50

3:20pm.

The first of the senior track

0:10:500:10:55

events. We have had junior club

relays to warm us up.

0:10:550:11:04

The first of two heats in the

women's 60 metres hurdles.

0:11:040:11:17

Sharika Nelvis stumbled.

0:11:280:11:33

Sharika Nelvis, she did save it and

comes through to take second, just

0:11:330:11:39

ahead of Owens. Welcome to Glasgow,

Sharika Nelvis, watch your step.

0:11:390:11:45

Isabel Pedersen takes the victory.

It took an athlete of Sharika

0:11:450:11:52

Nelvis's quality to come back after

the early stumbled.

I was watching

0:11:520:11:56

carefully and they skidded back. She

lost traction at the beginning, the

0:11:560:12:01

most crucial part of the race, but

she kept her head, she knows how

0:12:010:12:06

good she is and she went past all

the rest of the field. She works

0:12:060:12:11

hard. Keeping a cool head, thinking

and my imposition, yes, I have

0:12:110:12:18

enough to see myself through but

next time in the final she has to

0:12:180:12:22

make sure the blocks are well fixed

in the floor, because that was the

0:12:220:12:27

problem, they skidded back. We can

look again. Everything shot back.

0:12:270:12:34

She lost everything you need to get

impetus going into the first hurdle,

0:12:340:12:38

but because of the quality of

athlete she is, she was able to do

0:12:380:12:44

that.

STUDIO: Wow, not the start Sharika

0:12:440:12:47

Nelvis was hoping for and to win the

US trials you have to be a talent

0:12:470:12:51

because that event is loaded with

talent. Coming up, we have the men's

0:12:510:12:56

60 metres heats and competing for

Great Britain are Adam Gemili and CJ

0:12:560:13:03

Ujah, Brothers in Arms last summer

at the World Championships.

0:13:030:13:05

Ujah, Brothers in Arms last summer

at the World Championships.

0:13:050:13:06

We believe we have always have the

ability to challenge the world's

0:13:110:13:16

best.

I knew I wanted to give the

team the best start. London, home

0:13:160:13:22

champs. I believed we would win it.

There was a calm demeanour.

Everyone

0:13:220:13:27

knew the work was done. We stuck

together and believed in each other

0:13:270:13:31

and it culminated in one of the best

nights of my life.

Add any

0:13:310:13:39

Championships, it is great to win

that we were lucky to do it in front

0:13:390:13:42

of a great crowd and a moment like

that will stay with us for ever. The

0:13:420:13:48

rest was pretty much a blur. It is

our time to step up and win medals

0:13:480:13:53

individually. We did it as a relay

that if you ask those guys, it is

0:13:530:13:58

about being an individual champion

and we have the talent across all

0:13:580:14:02

events.

Being number one in that

podium, that is the main goal. I

0:14:020:14:07

have achieved the little girls, like

achieving a relay gold medal with

0:14:070:14:10

the guys. Hopefully get that at the

Olympics, as well, now it is

0:14:100:14:17

individually.

What has brought you

to Glasgow?

This is a stepping stone

0:14:170:14:21

in preparation for the world

indoors. It would be nice to come

0:14:210:14:26

out of nationals to racing some of

the fastest guys in the world. Get a

0:14:260:14:32

little feeling, six and seven days

of rest and then we go again.

I am

0:14:320:14:36

still building and in quite heavy

training, building into the

0:14:360:14:39

Commonwealth Games but I will go and

test myself and use it to compete

0:14:390:14:43

with the best guys. It is a

world-class field. The British

0:14:430:14:48

athletes are there and a lot of guys

are using it for preparation for the

0:14:480:14:52

world indoors and I am using it as

preparation for the Commonwealth

0:14:520:14:56

Games.

I have the leeway where I can

race back to back weeks. I feel I am

0:14:560:15:05

getting faster every race.

Now it is

on to Glasgow and the world. I am

0:15:050:15:11

excited for Britain, especially

going into Tokyo. I expect to see a

0:15:110:15:15

lot of men and women. The women are

still building but they are

0:15:150:15:20

unbelievable athletes. We will see a

lot more medals. That is the hope.

0:15:200:15:27

Those men 60-metre heats go off just

after 4pm. It was such an exciting

0:15:270:15:31

day, that final day, in terms of

British sprinting success. There did

0:15:310:15:36

seem to be this rich talent that was

getting itself on the podium in

0:15:360:15:43

those relays but how easy or how

much inspiration will they get from

0:15:430:15:46

that in terms of taking that into

individual success?

They're going to

0:15:460:15:49

draw a lot of inspiration from that.

I can't begin to tell you what it

0:15:490:15:54

feels like when you stand on that

podium having all that belief and

0:15:540:15:57

all that expectation and

anticipation of that moment. What

0:15:570:16:04

you get from these guys, and the

women sprinters, is this

0:16:040:16:07

overwhelming sense of belief that

they are able. And a sense of

0:16:070:16:13

belonging. They don't fear anyone

but it will be difficult to make

0:16:130:16:15

that transition but mentally, how

can you become those world beaters?

0:16:150:16:22

Don't fear the Americans!

We saw the

changing of the guard in a way

0:16:220:16:29

because Jamaican sprinting seems to

be kind of coming over the other

0:16:290:16:32

side of the hill a little bit at

that World Championships and so

0:16:320:16:36

they're not invincible.

They're not.

It's about preparation, the mental

0:16:360:16:41

preparation. Being good, getting in

the right races. Today is a great

0:16:410:16:45

opportunity for both those guys in

their preparation for the year. I

0:16:450:16:48

think they're in a good place.

Just

after 4pm, their heats. Let's see

0:16:480:16:53

the second of these 60-metre heats.

0:16:530:16:59

Let's bring you up to speed with the

result of the first qualifier.

0:16:590:17:06

result of the first qualifier. Such

is the form of Sharika Nelvis,

0:17:080:17:10

automatically through.

0:17:100:17:17

So, the second heat in this women's

60-metre hurdles. Here's your full

0:17:210:17:24

list. The familiar name now of

Christina Manning of the USA in lane

0:17:240:17:30

five.

0:17:300:17:37

The first three and two thrusters

will join their fellow athlete in

0:17:370:17:40

the final. Beaks cropped, the

bronze-medallist from 2012 -- Beate

0:17:400:17:47

Schrott. She's in lane two. The lass

from Derby, Jasmine Miller -- Yasmin

0:17:470:17:53

Miller. Second at the indoor champ

Egypt last week in Birmingham. 8.17

0:17:530:17:58

seconds this indoor season. A

semifinalist in the US indoor

0:17:580:18:04

Championships in Albuquerque last

week, Jade Barber. Sub 13 second 100

0:18:040:18:08

metre hurdle in outdoor. Christina

Manning, third at the US indoor

0:18:080:18:15

Championships but she's equal sixth

on the all-time list. 7.73 seconds.

0:18:150:18:21

Lane six, last year's under 23

champion and the 100 metre hurdles.

0:18:210:18:29

Nadine Visser. 7.91 seconds this

season. The smile of the new British

0:18:290:18:35

champion, Megan Marrs, world indoor

abound. She's been invited by the

0:18:350:18:39

IAAF to compete next week in

Birmingham. Evonne Britton of the

0:18:390:18:44

USA starts in the outside lane. A

semifinalist in the US indoor

0:18:440:18:49

Championships last week. It's a tidy

line up.

0:18:490:18:58

Looking to join those automatically

through from the first heat of the

0:18:580:19:05

women's 60 metre hurdle. Christina

Manning didn't quite get the job

0:19:050:19:10

done last week in Albuquerque at the

US Championships. She finished

0:19:100:19:12

third.

0:19:120:19:19

A clean start. Fall on the inside.

Nice and easy, 8.04 seconds for

0:19:330:19:43

Christina Manning of the USA. The

battle

0:19:430:19:51

battle she's had with Nelvis are

looking set to continue. Good tidy

0:19:510:19:55

running.

Tidy, yes. That's the way

I've described that. Nothing too

0:19:550:20:00

sharp. She's a woman who's gone

under that 7.8 mark. You expect a

0:20:000:20:06

little sharper but remember from

those US Championships, she's had to

0:20:060:20:10

travel. She was probably feeling the

track here but that was incredible

0:20:100:20:15

from Yasmin Miller. Unfortunately

for the good Derby last, she crashes

0:20:150:20:18

to the floor whilst running takes a

comfortable victory. Right-hand side

0:20:180:20:25

of our screen, she clatters that

hurdle. Trips herself up, plunges to

0:20:250:20:30

the floor. She will be bitterly

disappointed. In contrast,

0:20:300:20:39

disappointed. In contrast, Manning

threw to the final.

This final will

0:20:390:20:41

be one to look forward to. Manning

and Melrose have had a close

0:20:410:20:46

competition. They've been training,

and as Andrew mentioned earlier,

0:20:460:20:54

just before 3:20pm, the women's 60

metre hurdle final should be a good

0:20:540:20:59

one.

0:20:590:21:06

Confirmation, then. Christina

Manning automatically through. As

0:21:090:21:15

our Nadine Visser and Jade Barber.

Want to look forward to.

These are

0:21:150:21:20

the qualifiers for that final.

Sharika Nelvis through despite the

0:21:200:21:31

stumble on the blocks. Lindsay

Lindley going through as the fastest

0:21:310:21:37

loser.

0:21:370:21:38

Lindley going through as the fastest

loser.

Sharika Nelvis' 7.70 in the

0:21:380:21:44

US trials, the third fastest of all

time. It tells you what kind of

0:21:440:21:48

shape she's in. The last person you

would expect to have a start like

0:21:480:21:53

that but it can happen to the best

of them.

Happens in hurdles, happens

0:21:530:21:56

all the time. What she has done this

year and so far in the season

0:21:560:22:03

all the time. What she has done this

year and so far in the season is be

0:22:030:22:05

consistently cool and consistent. It

was a real surprise, a real shock,

0:22:050:22:11

to see her do that. Just stumbling,

trying to drive out. Naturally you

0:22:110:22:16

have to drive out hard but she

didn't get her feet down in the

0:22:160:22:19

right place. Because she's such an

accomplished athlete, she can still

0:22:190:22:24

run and qualify.

You can't really...

That kind of stumble, you may as

0:22:240:22:30

well be better standing starting --

starting standing up. You have no

0:22:300:22:35

drive out of the blocks effectively

so you have to create that momentum

0:22:350:22:39

from nothing.

You lose all your

power and speed. She just had to get

0:22:390:22:42

back into it and start to pick up in

the latter stages of this race. It

0:22:420:22:48

does happen. We've seen it before.

We've seen Bolt do its time and time

0:22:480:22:53

again. That fine line between the

centre of

0:22:530:22:55

again. That fine line between the

centre of cavity and getting your

0:22:550:22:58

feet underneath you and driving

hard. She got it wrong.

There's no

0:22:580:23:02

difference between indoor and

outdoor technique in terms of the

0:23:020:23:04

blocks.

Not really. You don't have

to factor it in. This is about

0:23:040:23:08

power. People have to be consistent

and sometimes a slight adjustments

0:23:080:23:14

can have massive consequences.

We

mention Greg Rutherford is perhaps

0:23:140:23:17

using this event to gauge where he

is and how he's feeling. He says

0:23:170:23:22

he's not going to the Commonwealth

Games and he's arriving looking very

0:23:220:23:26

cool and relaxed, shades on for the

Glasgow sunshine. He'll be looking,

0:23:260:23:30

I think, for around the eight-metre

mark today to determine whether or

0:23:300:23:35

not he'll be in Birmingham next

week.

That's so hard to predict. It

0:23:350:23:40

really is. He's missed a lot of

work. He didn't jump much last

0:23:400:23:44

season and on top of that, only

having a few jumps in this season.

0:23:440:23:48

It's not easy for him. But if anyone

can, you can.

I love the field

0:23:480:23:53

events indoors. There's a change of

atmosphere that really makes those

0:23:530:23:56

events very tight and the whole

thing is very tight anyway because

0:23:560:23:59

the track is a lot smaller the pole

vault am I think, mostly my

0:23:590:24:04

favourite indoors. I don't know what

it is, Steve, but we're so close to

0:24:040:24:08

it now, it feels like it has a very

different atmosphere to an outdoor

0:24:080:24:13

event.

No doubt about that. A treat

for fans this afternoon. The world

0:24:130:24:22

number one, Katerina Stefanidi, is

up. A chance to check in with Sally

0:24:220:24:26

number one, Katerina Stefanidi, is

up. A chance to check in with Sally

0:24:260:24:28

Peake. First-time clearance at the

opening height of four metres. Only

0:24:280:24:32

her and her team-mate Molly Caudery

have entered the condition so far.

0:24:320:24:37

The bar is now 4.15 metres. Sally

Peake, first attempt. Big Bend, good

0:24:370:24:45

clearance. OK. Two Jones, two

clearances were Sally Peake. Good

0:24:450:24:50

memories in the past. Commonwealth

Games, 2014, silver-medallist. Off

0:24:500:24:58

to a good start this afternoon.

0:24:580:25:05

to a good start this afternoon. One

0:25:050:25:05

Games, 2014, silver-medallist. Off

to a good start this afternoon. One

0:25:050:25:05

of a clutch of bright youngsters,

Molly Caudery, just 17 years of age.

0:25:050:25:09

She took the British title in last

weekend. A lifetime best. 4.15

0:25:090:25:17

metres, second attempt. She got a

foul on her first. That's better.

0:25:170:25:24

Her indoor season going very well

indeed. She's the youngest member of

0:25:240:25:29

England's Commonwealth Games team to

travel to Australia in April. Four

0:25:290:25:36

point three metres will be her next

height. The next event on track is

0:25:360:25:39

the women's 400 metres. Straight

final. There is the line-up for it.

0:25:390:25:46

Phyllis Francis is the world

champion.

0:25:490:25:52

Good lane to have on the board.

Looking for five or six perhaps in

0:25:580:26:02

the 400 metres. Eilidh Doyle will

get the loudest cheer of the day in

0:26:020:26:07

front of the Scottish crowd. UK

indoor champion. Just inside her,

0:26:070:26:12

Phyllis Francis, the world champion

in London last year, in dread con --

0:26:120:26:21

dreadful conditions, what a race for

Phyllis Francis. Stephenie Ann

0:26:210:26:24

McPherson, now the world

bronze-medallist from Moscow back in

0:26:240:26:29

2013 after disqualification of a

Russian athlete. He is Anita Horvat.

0:26:290:26:37

21 years old. She is second in the

standings for the mini to where they

0:26:370:26:42

have, the IAAF indoor tour. Kaliese

Spencer, first-time indoors this

0:26:420:26:51

season. Another one better known as

a hurdler. Outstanding hurdler. 2014

0:26:510:26:57

Commonwealth champion. On the

inside, Anyika Onuora. This her

0:26:570:27:03

first the real year of running 400

metres indoors properly and felt a

0:27:030:27:08

bit hard done by at UK

Championships. Run 53.01, which is

0:27:080:27:13

inside the world qualifying

standards but disqualified for

0:27:130:27:17

running out of her lane. A very

different beast, the 400 metres

0:27:170:27:20

indoors. Break after the second bend

and then it

0:27:200:27:31

and then it can be confusing over

the lanes and breaking point and

0:27:320:27:35

athletes can fall foul of that.

Eilidh Doyle on the outside. Then

0:27:350:27:40

Phyllis Francis, Stephenie Ann

McPherson, Anita Horvat in lane

0:27:400:27:44

three, Kaliese Spencer into and

Anyika Onuora on the inside. The

0:27:440:27:49

women's 400 metres.

0:27:490:27:52

Eilidh Doyle knows that her main

challengers are just inside.

0:28:020:28:12

Stephenie Ann McPherson leaving a

bit of pace perhaps for the second

0:28:180:28:20

half of the race.

0:28:200:28:27

Eilidh Doyle wants that bleed and

the cheers and roars of the crowd.

0:28:280:28:31

Can she hang on?

0:28:310:28:34

Nowhere to for Stephenie Ann

McPherson. Ellis Frist takes the win

0:28:520:28:56

from Eilidh Doyle. Stephenie Ann

McPherson closed down and on balance

0:28:560:29:00

upset on the home straight. She

finishes in third. She might have

0:29:000:29:04

something to say about that but

there was no way through fourth her.

0:29:040:29:08

Eilidh Doyle did not open the gap

and Phyllis Francis strong enough to

0:29:080:29:14

take the victory.

It was an

interesting race and really messy,

0:29:140:29:18

as well. Phyllis Francis got the

advantage coming through the first

0:29:180:29:21

200 metres but didn't utilise it.

But Eilidh Doyle took advantage and

0:29:210:29:25

swept in down the back straight in

front of Frist and it looked like

0:29:250:29:30

Eilidh Doyle would run the perfect

race but the world champion was

0:29:300:29:34

going to dig deep, travelling over

year to Scotland. I'm not quite sure

0:29:340:29:39

what is McPherson was doing. You're

not going on the inside on a

0:29:390:29:42

400-metre race. Eilidh Doyle had her

eyes on the prize but the strength

0:29:420:29:49

of the world champion, Phyllis

Francis, pulled away in the end. The

0:29:490:29:51

only person who ran a tactically

good race for me there was Eilidh

0:29:510:29:54

Doyle but the world champion comes

away with the win.

She get herself a

0:29:540:29:59

great chance, Eilidh Doyle. Running

down the rail on the inside. Lactic

0:29:590:30:04

acid deliberate taking your toll.

Losing her balance and finding

0:30:040:30:07

herself right on the inside. A

message race from Stephenie Ann

0:30:070:30:11

McPherson but Phyllis Francis the

winner and Eilidh Doyle a good race

0:30:110:30:14

in second place.

0:30:140:30:19

unbelievable athletes. We will see a

lot more medals. That is the hope.

0:30:190:30:19

What a phenomenal final.

How was it

for you? It was great, first-time

0:30:190:30:24

running here, amazing, the

competition was great. Energy level,

0:30:240:30:28

amazing.

It was cool. That was bold,

how did it go free you?

Really

0:30:280:30:35

happy. I wanted to be aggressive

with the break and I think I was.

0:30:350:30:40

This is what is going to happen in

the world indoors. I came prepared

0:30:400:30:44

today and it puts me in good stead

for next weekend.

You will be taking

0:30:440:30:52

part in the 100 metres relay.

How is

the US team looking? Looking great,

0:30:520:30:57

I'm excited.

You? Serving. You have

come here, from Texas, what is it

0:30:570:31:03

like coming here and acclimatising?

It is no big deal. I had a day and a

0:31:030:31:09

half to adjust everything. It has

been great. The environment is cool

0:31:090:31:13

and we are ready to go next week.

You had to travel for this but you

0:31:130:31:20

are back on home soil?

I do not live

far away my family are here to watch

0:31:200:31:24

me which is lovely to have that for

a change.

A fantastic race to get us

0:31:240:31:30

started. Best of luck next weekend.

COMMENTATOR: A good

0:31:300:31:37

started. Best of luck next weekend.

COMMENTATOR: A good win for Francis.

0:31:370:31:38

The American team is strong.

0:31:380:31:44

STUDIO: Eilidh Doyle, she often uses

the 400 metres flat. Part of the

0:31:540:32:00

British outdoor quartet. She

particularly focuses on the indoor

0:32:000:32:04

season on

0:32:040:32:04

particularly focuses on the indoor

season on the 400 flat, looking in

0:32:040:32:06

good shape.

She has changed her

training base. She is training as

0:32:060:32:11

she always does very hard. Changed

her environment a little bit. What

0:32:110:32:17

you always expect and is constant

about her, is her commitment and how

0:32:170:32:22

she approaches races, especially

indoors. She knows how important

0:32:220:32:27

getting to the 200 mark first is as

she puts herself always in the right

0:32:270:32:33

position. For me, she

0:32:330:32:34

she puts herself always in the right

position. For me, she ran a good

0:32:340:32:34

race.

0:32:340:32:38

position. For me, she ran a good

race.

0:32:380:32:44

race. Eilidh Doyle here dominant,

taking her time. Making sure she is

0:32:440:32:48

giving herself every opportunity to

watch and respond should she need

0:32:480:32:51

to. I think she is confident

indoors. She runs a good relay and

0:32:510:33:02

make sure she is a member of that

quartet.

0:33:020:33:10

quartet.

Known as Eilidh Child, of

course. She has been British captain

0:33:100:33:15

as well. Heading into a season of

the world indoors and Commonwealth

0:33:150:33:20

Games, she has complete confidence

and comfortable demeanour

0:33:200:33:24

Games, she has complete confidence

and comfortable demeanour on this

0:33:240:33:24

stage. Going into Championships she

knows how to prepare. She is a

0:33:240:33:29

reliable athlete.

She has a wealth

of experience on and off the track.

0:33:290:33:34

What she needs to do and she knows

it, it is very small, finding that

0:33:340:33:40

extra bit of speed she can take

indoors and consequently outside for

0:33:400:33:45

the hurdles.

OK it is the turn of

0:33:450:33:47

indoors and consequently outside for

the hurdles.

OK it is the turn of

0:33:470:33:47

the men.

COMMENTATOR: It is indeed. We saw

0:33:470:33:55

some messy running in the winner's

400 metres but the home crowd buoyed

0:33:550:34:01

by the running of their home star

Eilidh Doyle. Another men. It should

0:34:010:34:08

be an interesting race, because the

athlete in lane number five, Fred

0:34:080:34:13

Kerley from the USA, starting to

talk about a possible world record

0:34:130:34:17

in Glasgow which is a big ask. 44.57

seconds set in 2005. There he is,

0:34:170:34:25

Fred Kerley in lane number five.

Good British representation.

0:34:250:34:32

Athletes going to the world indoor

Championships for Great Britain in

0:34:320:34:36

the relay in lanes 1-3. In number

six, from Slovenia, European under

0:34:360:34:49

23 champion last year, Luka Janezic.

The world number four.

0:34:490:35:00

The world number four. 45.18

seconds, third at the US indoor

0:35:000:35:03

Championships. Had a tactical

nightmare last week in Albuquerque.

0:35:030:35:08

The fourth fastest athlete of all

time. Over 400 metres. Dontavius

0:35:080:35:15

Wright in lane number four.

Outdoors, just over 45 seconds. And

0:35:150:35:20

a trio of British athletes. Jamal

Rhoden-Stevens, third at the UK

0:35:200:35:27

Championships last week. Going to

Birmingham next weekend. Owen Smith,

0:35:270:35:34

the Welsh athlete, twice world

champion. And on the inside, from

0:35:340:35:43

Sheffield, Grant Plenderleith.

Fourth at the UK Championships. A

0:35:430:35:50

big cheer for him. The men's 400

metres UK champion Lee Thompson

0:35:500:35:58

concentrating on the world indoor

Championships next weekend. So, Mr

0:35:580:36:02

Fred Kerley, fourth fastest of all

time. He said he is feeling good.

0:36:020:36:08

Looking for something special here.

0:36:080:36:16

Fred Kerley in five starting fast.

Outdoor over 200 metres he ran 22.24

0:36:380:36:45

seconds last year and he has drawn

back the stagger on Janezic outside

0:36:450:36:50

him. Around the top bend. In lane

four, tracking Kerley. Looking

0:36:500:36:57

comfortable for the American and

through the bell. A breakaway of

0:36:570:37:04

three athletes in this 400 metres.

The event favourite Fred Kerley of

0:37:040:37:10

the USA, not putting a gap between

him and his team-mates Dontavius

0:37:100:37:15

Wright is the moment. Janezic in

third. He puts his foot down and

0:37:150:37:21

takes deeper. A burst of

acceleration. Well, 45.86 seconds is

0:37:210:37:29

not the world record in Glasgow here

today for Fred Kerley. But, job done

0:37:290:37:34

in a reasonable time, Andrew.

Yes,

45.80 six. He has a curious style

0:37:340:37:44

Fred Kerley but he was too good for

the rest. Two races between Kerley,

0:37:440:37:51

Janezic and Fred Kerley and the

three British athletes were

0:37:510:37:55

separated. Janezic timed it well.

Forward leaning and limited on

0:37:550:38:03

carriage but a powerful athlete,

Fred Kerley. The strength of men's

0:38:030:38:08

400 metres running in the US, he

will not be at the world indoors.

0:38:080:38:13

Dontavius Wright could not get back

to him and Janezic was able to

0:38:130:38:18

finish the stronger. A good time by

Fred Kerley. A comfortable win. Look

0:38:180:38:24

at the power he possesses. The

second half of the race that is

0:38:240:38:28

where Dontavius Wright thought he

would get back. He was working Fred

0:38:280:38:32

Kerley all the way but does not

possess the power Fred Kerley house.

0:38:320:38:38

There is always that great strength

in the competition in America. You

0:38:380:38:42

do not sometimes know who will be at

the major championships. A good run

0:38:420:38:47

from Kerley.

It was, it is a win in

Glasgow. Stadium record. Fred

0:38:470:38:54

Kerley. The American was dominant,

maybe not as quick as he liked, but

0:38:540:38:58

it was a victory.

0:38:580:39:05

Long jump time. Jazmin Sawyers

getting ready to start the

0:39:060:39:15

competition off hopefully in good

shape. Maybe just over six metres

0:39:150:39:22

that. They look to the crowd. Her

coach

0:39:220:39:37

Kelly Southerton. Class opposition

in the form of Ivana Spanovic.

0:39:380:39:45

Jazmin Sawyers, a wobbly start to

her 2018 indoor season. A valid

0:39:450:39:51

jump.

0:39:510:39:58

Now we turn to Christabel Nettey.

Slightly below her best, this year,

0:40:000:40:06

the 26-year-old. Good on the board.

That is much further in towards six

0:40:060:40:13

and a half metres.

0:40:130:40:21

6.50 six. Fourth at the 2015 World

Championships. Probably her best

0:40:210:40:32

performance to shout about, the

Canadian. A record-holder. It will

0:40:320:40:37

take the lead.

0:40:370:40:43

take the lead. 6.17, Jazmin Sawyers'

jump. Christabel Nettey goes into

0:40:430:40:47

first place.

0:40:470:40:53

first place. Venetia Birks of the

United States, also a very capable

0:40:530:40:58

60 metres

0:40:580:41:03

60 metres sprinter -- Quanesha

Burks. 22 years of age and capable

0:41:040:41:06

of taking the lead in the first

round and it looks like she has done

0:41:060:41:11

exactly that. She drifted off

towards the left. 2015 Collegiate

0:41:110:41:15

champion. Based in Alabama. Way

behind the board. That bodes well

0:41:150:41:25

for the rest of her competition. You

can see her drifting off left which

0:41:250:41:30

maybe shows a lack of balance, so a

bit of tidying up for her. 6.65

0:41:300:41:37

takes the lead for the American.

0:41:370:41:42

STUDIO: Coming up we will see the

world champion in the winner's high

0:41:420:41:49

jump where Britain's Morgan Lake is

in action. The women's 60 metres,

0:41:490:41:56

Dina Asher-Smith against Dafne

Schippers. The men's 60, CJ Ujah and

0:41:560:42:01

Adam Gemili and Reece Prescod

featuring. And after his fourth

0:42:010:42:04

place

0:42:040:42:09

place in London, can he impress in

the 800 metres? The British Walker

0:42:100:42:15

Tom Bosworth provided one of the

most agonising images of the World

0:42:150:42:19

Championships when he was

disqualified for lifting his feet.

0:42:190:42:22

He had hopes of a medal and was

distraught when he received a third

0:42:220:42:27

red card, but he has vowed to come

back stronger and we will see him in

0:42:270:42:31

the 3000 metres walk. Andrew.

0:42:310:42:33

back stronger and we will see him in

the 3000 metres walk. Andrew. There

0:42:330:42:38

is no doubt of the talent and

achievements of Tom Bosworth,

0:42:380:42:42

bringing the sport more into the

public consciousness. There was the

0:42:420:42:47

high-profile disqualification at

London. He is a man of achievement,

0:42:470:42:51

holder of a world best over the

mile. This is the line-up. Callum

0:42:510:42:57

Wilkinson, they train together. At

the race walking training centre in

0:42:570:43:04

Leeds. Wilkinson and Bosworth part

of that but Tom Bosworth should be a

0:43:040:43:08

class apart here and looking for a

time against so

0:43:080:43:17

time against so many -- time. So

many people not familiar with

0:43:170:43:21

racewalking. He is a character with

great celebrations in the final

0:43:210:43:25

stages of his win at the indoor

Championships. And there is Callum

0:43:250:43:31

Wilkinson, who was disqualified in

the British Championships. That is

0:43:310:43:36

an occupational hazard of race

walkers. About one in eight in a

0:43:360:43:40

race can be expected to be

disqualified. There will be three

0:43:400:43:45

judges checking for a couple of

things we will talk about. The

0:43:450:43:51

Italian could be strong. Diego

Garcia, a former under 23 champion

0:43:510:43:55

in Europe.

0:43:550:44:00

in Europe. Cameron call Bush lead.

Tom Partington. And Christopher

0:44:010:44:14

Snook. With 3000 metres, Tom

Bosworth is looking for below 11

0:44:140:44:24

minutes. Looking for a Commonwealth

best time which he holds, 10.50

0:44:240:44:30

eight. For those not familiar with

racewalking, there is one rule above

0:44:300:44:35

all, the one the judges will be

keeping an eye on which is not

0:44:350:44:42

visible loss of contact of one foot

is touching the ground, the other

0:44:420:44:47

one can be in the air but you cannot

have loss of contact on the ground.

0:44:470:44:53

Visible loss of contact is down to

the naked eye done by the judges.

0:44:530:44:57

The other is the advancing leg must

be straightened at the moment of

0:44:570:45:01

first contact with the ground until

the vertical upright position, so

0:45:010:45:06

effectively when it passes under the

body it has to be straight. Walkers

0:45:060:45:10

have a concave knee towards the end

of the stride. We talk about the

0:45:100:45:19

speed Tom Bosworth moves at.

0:45:190:45:24

speed Tom Bosworth moves at. He can

move a lot faster walking than most

0:45:240:45:30

people can run. You see the pacey is

shifting out at the moment.

0:45:300:45:37

Absolutely. The danger is that they

get pulled into that. Pulled into

0:45:370:45:44

the quick pace that Tom Bosworth is

setting and if their technique isn't

0:45:440:45:47

quite up to it, that strength isn't

there, that is where we see the card

0:45:470:45:51

and that was a card out there that

we saw already acting for Tom

0:45:510:45:55

Bosworth. The grimace on his face,

he's trying to get onto the pace. He

0:45:550:45:59

went through the first lap in 44

seconds. That's about

0:45:590:46:07

seconds. That's about bank on 3.40

pace. Yesterday not for the British

0:46:070:46:10

record and I think he has in his

sights the world best. Maybe all so

0:46:100:46:15

even the world best which goes back

to 2001.

Another yellow card comes

0:46:150:46:22

in for Marius Dugas of Lithuania.

Three cards to the chief judge and

0:46:220:46:29

you'll be disqualified. When you're

talking 3000 metres it's a quick

0:46:290:46:34

pace. They are at the limit. Another

card that Arius UCAS, he is on

0:46:340:46:42

borrowed time at the moment, I

think. -- for Marius Dugas. Looking

0:46:420:46:48

ahead to this long jump. Tianna

Bartoletta of the USA. Low-key start

0:46:480:46:57

to her indoor season so far and

didn't seem to have any left on

0:46:570:47:00

that, either. That jump of her

team-mate, 6.65. Doesn't look as

0:47:000:47:08

though she will threaten that. No

real giveaway in her facial

0:47:080:47:12

expression, at least. Bit of space

on the board. Double world champion,

0:47:120:47:21

Bartoletta. Olympic champion from

2016. A brilliant record but...

0:47:210:47:30

Below what she's capable off here in

Glasgow.

0:47:300:47:39

Here's our rising talent. Khaddi

Sagnia of Sweden. 23 years of age,

0:47:390:47:49

improving this winter. She knows --

we know she's in great shape. She's

0:47:490:47:55

jumped 6.85 already this year and

it's around that kind of distance,

0:47:550:47:59

looks just below seven metres. She

likes it. Sagnia also a heptathlete.

0:47:590:48:06

Very capable all-rounder is the

23-year-old Swedish jumper. Said she

0:48:060:48:15

was improving. Look at the height,!

That's a beautiful long jump.

0:48:150:48:22

Waiting for this, this is going to

challenge her indoor best ever. It

0:48:220:48:29

does indeed. A national record the

Sagnia. 6.92 metres in the first

0:48:290:48:35

round. Brilliant stuff. So, then...

He is someone who can respond and

0:48:350:48:42

that type of distance. She's jumped

one centimetre further last week in

0:48:420:48:48

Belgrade. Ivana Spanovic, the

European indoor champion.

0:48:480:48:51

Brilliantly consistent. It looked a

bit flat, but it's way out into the

0:48:510:48:57

sandpit. Looked a little cagey

there. She's got that left ankle

0:48:570:49:03

strapped. The take-off leg. Be

giving back a little bit of that

0:49:030:49:09

week in jumping for that season's

best last weekend. A lot of

0:49:090:49:16

rotational force when you get caught

a bit sideways off the board like

0:49:160:49:18

that. Spanovic 27 years of age now.

6.81 and she goes into second place.

0:49:180:49:28

Five jumps remaining.

0:49:280:49:35

Moorfield event action as all eyes

turn to the pole vault. Sally Peake,

0:49:350:49:44

4.3 metres. This is to stay in.

Third and final attempt.

0:49:440:49:49

4.3 metres. This is to stay in.

Third and final attempt. Another big

0:49:490:49:50

Bend and it's too much today.

0:49:500:49:59

Bend and it's too much today. Three

fouls, unfortunately, her best this

0:49:590:50:01

afternoon 4.15 metres. Her

afternoon's work is over fourth

0:50:010:50:09

Dunn. . Fourth place and ignore that

because the best haven't even joined

0:50:090:50:14

yet. We're back with the walk and

Tom Bosworth is a long time in

0:50:140:50:20

front. While you were away, the

yellow cards have been flying. We

0:50:200:50:25

don't know who and how many. I think

Tom Bosworth might, Callum Wilkinson

0:50:250:50:31

does. Is the board showing which

athletes have -- the board shows but

0:50:310:50:39

it is turned away from us. Tom

Bosworth is looking for the pace of

0:50:390:50:43

10.5 eight.

Will get a better idea

when they go through 2000 metres.

0:50:430:50:49

1000 metres in 3.31 which is a very

quick. Almost on pace to set the

0:50:490:50:54

world record which currently stands

at 10.31. That was back in 2001.

0:50:540:51:01

Andreas Germany. Tom is working

hard, he's checking his watch

0:51:010:51:04

regularly.

A yellow there. We saw

the judge coming in. One on the back

0:51:040:51:10

straight, one on the home straight,

one on the bend, as well. Another

0:51:100:51:13

yellow but it's not how many he has,

two War one. It's a grimace rather

0:51:130:51:19

than a grin. His record, which was

set years ago, that was at 5.30 one.

0:51:190:51:28

He is a long way ahead, 14 seconds

ahead of that pace.

He's just gone

0:51:280:51:35

through 2000 metres in 7.03, so

slowed slightly but only by a

0:51:350:51:40

second. It's close and he's already

on two warnings, we think. May have

0:51:400:51:45

just got his third.

That panel may

have said two on it. Tom Bosworth

0:51:450:51:52

gain is right on the edge here.

These walkers live right on the edge

0:51:520:51:55

all the time. Tom Bosworth moving

ground. He's going to win this

0:51:550:52:00

comfortable. It's about the time.

Super slow Mo. Everyone seeing that

0:52:000:52:08

there is clear air. It's down to the

naked eye of the judges. That's a

0:52:080:52:13

loss of contact, but it's down to

the naked eye of the judges as he

0:52:130:52:16

moves round at that great pace

there. Tom Bosworth, you see that

0:52:160:52:21

this close eye and scrutiny of the

judges, no, emus at that particular

0:52:210:52:26

line safely and Tom Bosworth still

some way to go but he's way ahead of

0:52:260:52:30

record pace. One more yellow card

and he will be disqualified.

He's

0:52:300:52:35

definitely walking a fine line now.

He has the advantage of the fact

0:52:350:52:39

that he's lapping the walkers in

front of him. He has then to draw on

0:52:390:52:43

and maybe almost hide amongst, as

well, and he can use them to pull

0:52:430:52:47

himself on as he can but it's not

now a question of how much energy he

0:52:470:52:51

has left and how fast he can go but

how well he can maintain his

0:52:510:52:55

technique as he starts to fatigue.

You see his pace as he moves past

0:52:550:53:00

Christopher Snook who is a very good

race walker. You may pass! All is

0:53:000:53:05

well. He may just, now that he's on

two yellows, he may just drop the

0:53:050:53:11

pace. The River reference -- the

video referees would be the end of

0:53:110:53:17

them all but he's still with us and

racing towards the record at the

0:53:170:53:21

moment. He's doing great things for

racewalking in this country because

0:53:210:53:25

suddenly these events are featured

in major British beatings and it's

0:53:250:53:29

because of Tom Bosworth and his

efforts. He's out in front of the K

0:53:290:53:34

mark and the 20-kilometre walk at

the World Championships. There you

0:53:340:53:39

look in real time and did so, so

difficult to see. That's what the

0:53:390:53:42

judges are looking for. He comes

passed one more judge, past, and

0:53:420:53:47

moves on. Looks to be pretty good.

The pace looks really good. You can

0:53:470:53:53

tell he's trying to work harder and

maintain the technique. The

0:53:530:53:57

collision between him and the

second-place athlete is still

0:53:570:54:00

growing not as quickly as it was and

I think he has decided he can either

0:54:000:54:05

risk it all and really go to try and

beat that world best, or he can just

0:54:050:54:10

aim for a British record and the

best of the world so far this year

0:54:100:54:14

and tried to walk a clean race now

for the remaining lap, just over a

0:54:140:54:17

lap.

0:54:170:54:22

lap.

Is so Giorgio Rubino in the

distance and he can talk himself

0:54:260:54:30

into the pace and it takes a

tremendous toll on the body. Tom

0:54:300:54:33

Bosworth facing 10.58.21, the

British best. He is certainly going

0:54:330:54:38

to beat that and as other athletes

hear the bell, Tom Bosworth here's

0:54:380:54:44

the noise of the crowd cheering him

around to what will be another mark

0:54:440:54:47

to add to his collection, beating

his own British best. Look at the

0:54:470:54:52

speed that he moves past! The world

record is 10.31 and he's not far

0:54:520:54:57

from that. He has it! World best

time by Tom Bosworth. We thought he

0:54:570:55:04

was chasing only the British best,

but 3.26 the final kilometre. Three

0:55:040:55:13

.26 for the final kilometre and his

arms are a lot as he realises he has

0:55:130:55:16

that world best time, which have

been held by the German going back

0:55:160:55:23

to 2001. It goes now to Tom Bosworth

Mehidy Hasan it again. Another great

0:55:230:55:27

achievement by this great race

walker. Again, it's worth stressing

0:55:270:55:33

that final kilometre in 3.26, to

walk at that pace, some achievement.

0:55:330:55:40

What a time, what a race by Tom

Bosworth.

0:55:400:55:44

That seemed very clinical and was a

world record. How do you feel?

Oh,

0:55:480:55:54

man, I can't believe it! I thought

man! With five laps to go I thought

0:55:540:55:59

I wasn't going to get it. I saw a

couple of cards and thought, I don't

0:55:590:56:03

want London to happen again. Oh,

man! I feel sick as hell!

You

0:56:030:56:08

clearly, out today with that.

These

athletes don't get is not demarche

0:56:080:56:16

--. Get enough from. I'm over the

moon to have set that today in front

0:56:160:56:20

of this crowd, the crowd are awesome

and I love performing.

You've

0:56:200:56:24

mentioned London already. That

disqualification, how much is that

0:56:240:56:27

driving you? How much are you

thinking about that as you are

0:56:270:56:31

competing?

Absolutely every single

training session and race, but I've

0:56:310:56:34

learned from it. I've come on from

it and just want to get better.

0:56:340:56:40

People at home will be posing their

TV saying the walkers have beat off

0:56:400:56:43

the ground but it doesn't matter,

it's all down to the human eye, the

0:56:430:56:47

judges are seeing it. If you are

walking, got a straight leg. All I

0:56:470:56:51

wanted to do was put on a good show

and I broken world record!

You can

0:56:510:56:56

tell from your face that it is

gruelling it's very disciplined.

0:56:560:57:00

Exactly. I could feel in the second

kilometre that my legs were going

0:57:000:57:04

and I thought, right, just bogus and

push off and keep up walking

0:57:040:57:07

technique to the best you possibly

can. At that speed, you know... It's

0:57:070:57:12

going to be really difficult and I

thought, to be honest, I'd be happy

0:57:120:57:15

with the British record, so to smash

that... Banks to these guys, my

0:57:150:57:20

family, you guys at home. It means

so much.

Tom, fantastic to watch.

0:57:200:57:24

Best of luck for the Commonwealths.

What a great thing to get him going

0:57:240:57:30

out to the Gold Coast for the

Commonwealth Games, to take that

0:57:300:57:33

world record. A good point there

about people pausing and we were

0:57:330:57:37

showing you the shots as well of

feet above -- of the ground. It is

0:57:370:57:42

down to the judges. They do say I do

if the athlete needs a yellow card.

0:57:420:57:49

Tom Bosworth encapsulated their not

just the physical side of it but

0:57:490:57:52

it's such a mentally taxing event,

isn't it? The focus of thinking, and

0:57:520:57:55

my take on an Apple TV might

technique? In the way you don't in

0:57:550:58:01

any other event.

It's holding the

technique for so many laps and the

0:58:010:58:05

distance that he does. It's

incredibly tough, but what a great

0:58:050:58:08

character he is and what a

formidable athlete. To get the

0:58:080:58:14

opportunity to raise into doors and

show how skilful he really is is

0:58:140:58:18

brilliant.

-- race indoors. Well

done, Tom Bosworth. A world record

0:58:180:58:25

that will take some beating at the

moment for the day to get that our

0:58:250:58:30

first hour. Next on the track, two

para events. Sophie Hahn and Olivia

0:58:300:58:36

Brean are going in this and both

athletes have been involved recently

0:58:360:58:41

in a debate surrounding the

classification of IPC events. JJ

0:58:410:58:46

Chalmers reports regularly on

parrots bought so is all across this

0:58:460:58:49

story. -- Para sports.

You think

back a few years when Olivia Brean

0:58:490:58:59

was the next big talent in British

sprinting at the Paralympics.

0:58:590:59:02

Shortly after that, Sophie Hahn came

on the scene and she's to be

0:59:020:59:06

five-time world champion. Olivia

Breen has found her place in the

0:59:060:59:11

last year but this has hit the

papers and been quite controversial

0:59:110:59:15

because Olivia Breen's father

Michael alleged to a parliamentary

0:59:150:59:18

committee that he had been told that

Sophie Hahn was in the wrong

0:59:180:59:23

category and was benefiting from

that classification error. Having

0:59:230:59:26

said that, both of these athletes

are really... They've been put in a

0:59:260:59:31

classification by the IPC, they'll

turn up and run their race

0:59:310:59:34

regardless.

Is a classification

going to be a continuing issue,

0:59:340:59:39

though, in Para sport going forwards

quiz yellow it's contentious.

When I

0:59:390:59:46

spoke to the potential future

presidents last year that would take

0:59:460:59:49

over from Sir Philip Craven, a job

that went to Andrew Parsons, and

0:59:490:59:53

ultimately, every single one of them

said it was one of the top issues.

0:59:530:59:56

Allah classification is broken down

but hows how athletes are placed

0:59:561:00:01

within those categories. Having said

that, there will always be the issue

1:00:011:00:04

which is some nations will look for

athletes who sit on the fringes of

1:00:041:00:09

their classification to gain an edge

against the nations because that's

1:00:091:00:13

not illegal, it's simply a great

area and an area where they can get

1:00:131:00:17

competitive advantage.

Some might

say it goes against the spirit of

1:00:171:00:21

those events. You feel this is an

issue that's not going to be put to

1:00:211:00:26

bed quickly. Those races coming up

very soon. The field goes on.

1:00:261:00:31

people can run. You see the pacey is

shifting out at the moment.

1:00:311:00:36

This is Molly Caudery as the pole

vault progresses.

1:00:361:00:44

vault progresses. What can she do on

her third attempt? It is good. Great

1:00:451:00:48

stuff.

1:00:481:00:53

stuff. For the 17-year-old. That is

a new indoor best. That is very

1:00:531:01:00

impressive off the back of her

British Championships victory last

1:01:001:01:03

weekend.

As we turn our

1:01:031:01:12

attention to the athlete placed

tenth in Rio. Another long effort.

1:01:181:01:25

We have seen Tatiana Bata letter off

the

1:01:251:01:32

the pace but really good quality.

Athletes trying to find former head

1:01:351:01:42

of the world indoor Championships.

1:01:421:01:52

of the world indoor Championships. A

contender for a medal for sure. She

1:01:521:01:58

waits for her second attempt. A big

season's best. Goes into second

1:01:581:02:02

place.

1:02:021:02:07

Behind Sagnia. And now the women's

60 metres T 37-38, for athletes with

1:02:121:02:23

coordination impairment, cerebral

palsy or similar.

1:02:231:02:32

In lane number one. 29-year-old Ali

Smith, coached by Paul McGregor. A

1:02:361:02:42

wonderful opportunity for

para-athletes. Bethany Tucker. 9.25

1:02:421:02:55

seconds indoors three seasons ago.

And a big cheer for this athlete.

1:02:551:03:02

Dunbar's Maria

1:03:021:03:08

Dunbar's Maria Lyle, starting in

lane three. 18 on Valentine's Day.

1:03:081:03:13

And the ever smiling Olivia Breen,

the world champion last year in the

1:03:131:03:16

long jump. And here is the focus of

Sophie Hahn in lane five. The

1:03:161:03:27

Paralympic champion and double world

champion and record holder outdoors.

1:03:271:03:31

The familiar face of Katrina Hart.

She runs in the T37 classification.

1:03:311:03:41

And in lane number seven from

Middlesbrough, Amy Carr. 18 years

1:03:411:03:45

old. 9.35 seconds a few seasons ago.

And completing the line-up, Abbie

1:03:451:03:54

McNally from Inverness. Just 16

years old. Two world champions in

1:03:541:04:02

this race. Olivia Breen on your

right. The long jump world champion.

1:04:021:04:08

Sophie Hahn, 100 metres and 200

metres world champion.

1:04:081:04:16

The ever evolving row in terms of

classifications in Paralympic sport

1:04:211:04:28

will continue, but this is what it

is all about.

1:04:281:04:37

A clean start from Sophie Hahn. 7.94

seconds! The magical eight second

1:04:421:04:55

barrier for Sophie Hahn has been

smashed in Glasgow today.

1:04:551:05:05

smashed in Glasgow today. She could

not stand until she was two years

1:05:051:05:09

old and it took until after her

third birthday to be able to walk

1:05:091:05:13

and talk. A wonderful run by Sophie

Hahn. She's going to the

1:05:131:05:16

Commonwealth Games to make her

debut. But it was a fast start.

1:05:161:05:22

Sophie Hahn, eyes down, good

technique. The right side of her

1:05:221:05:26

body is weaker. She struggles with

coordination. Sometimes she cannot

1:05:261:05:33

tie her shoelaces, she said. Olivia

Breen had a good run in second

1:05:331:05:36

place. 8.40 for Olivia Breen. One

100th of a second outside her

1:05:361:05:46

lifetime best performance. Hahn and

Olivia Breen off to the Commonwealth

1:05:461:05:51

Games. It will be a 100 metres event

down under. Kadeena Cox entered for

1:05:511:05:59

England, as well. And Katrina Hart.

Yes, she enjoyed it!

1:05:591:06:04

England, as well. And Katrina Hart.

Yes, she enjoyed it!

That was a

1:06:041:06:07

beautiful performance, you broke the

eight second barrier.

I am

1:06:071:06:10

delighted. I had some training this

week. That is what I run in training

1:06:101:06:20

and to do it on the track is

brilliant.

We are used to seeing you

1:06:201:06:24

in the outdoor over 100 metres.

How

do you find 60 metres? I do not mind

1:06:241:06:29

60 metres. If I get a good start it

is great, but if it is an OK start,

1:06:291:06:35

it is harder.

How you feeling

against the Commonwealth Games?

I am

1:06:351:06:40

so excited. I will train hard and

get ready for the Commonwealth

1:06:401:06:44

Games.

Fantastic, excellent to watch

it. Congratulations.

1:06:441:06:53

There is confirmation. A lifetime

best national record for Sophie

1:06:571:07:00

Hahn. Off to the Commonwealth Games.

Olivia Breen picking up second and a

1:07:001:07:08

host of personal best s over the

distance. It is the focus and drive.

1:07:081:07:14

A familiar shot of Sophie Hahn. What

a great opportunity for our T 37-38

1:07:141:07:23

athletes to take part in this

meeting. She looks at the clock. She

1:07:231:07:27

said she had done it in training and

needed to do it in competition. That

1:07:271:07:30

is a good run.

1:07:301:07:37

COMMENTATOR: Back to the long jump

competition. Jazmin Sawyers followed

1:07:381:07:44

up her first-round jump with two

fouls. We are now in round three.

1:07:441:07:53

Quanesha Burks almost missed the

pit. An optical illusion. Putting in

1:07:531:07:59

a good series. Let's look at this.

It will be beyond it. It looks as

1:07:591:08:06

though she has improved. Still has

space on the board and still going

1:08:061:08:11

sideways. The hand was out of the

pit, but it is a valid jump. I am

1:08:111:08:16

not sure why it stands with that

hand. If it was behind, it would be

1:08:161:08:22

contentious. Improvement and

season's best. 6.70 two. Tianna

1:08:221:08:30

Bartoletta. Really at of sorts is

the only way to explain what she has

1:08:301:08:37

done so far. 6.52 is her season's

best. Over half a metre down on what

1:08:371:08:43

she is capable of. 32, oldest in the

field. And feeling it at the moment.

1:08:431:08:50

The youngsters snapping at her

heels, and quick on the approach as

1:08:501:08:55

ever. She is a brilliant sprinter.

Twice Olympic champion in the relay

1:08:551:09:01

and in the long jump. Double world

champion. She has done everything.

1:09:011:09:05

But not going her way in Glasgow.

6.52 remains her best because the

1:09:051:09:15

6.39 in round three.

COMMENTATOR: Next on the track,

1:09:151:09:27

British athletics are running this

event. The women's T 43-4460 metres.

1:09:271:09:34

The familiar names with Sophie

Kamlish in four. Blade Runner is now

1:09:341:09:40

have their own classification. T

61-64. For athletes, amputees,

1:09:401:09:53

movements with similar patterns.

Fleur Jong starting in lane number

1:09:531:10:00

three. Sophie Kamlish, her flower in

her hair. The world record holder.

1:10:001:10:08

World champion over 100 metres. 8.35

seconds this season. Outside Sophie

1:10:081:10:16

Kamlish, Irmgard Bensusan, the T44

athlete. Triple Paralympic silvers

1:10:161:10:21

is what she won in Rio. And Laura

Sugar.

1:10:211:10:29

Below the knee condition. Iris

Pruysen had her leg amputated

1:10:351:10:49

following a gas explosion. A Marlene

van Gansewinkel, the 22-year-old

1:10:491:10:56

with a Paralympic bronze medal at

Rio in the long jump. So, 60 metres.

1:10:561:10:59

So

1:10:591:11:04

So me -- Sophie Kamlish in lane

four.

1:11:041:11:11

A wonderful world para championships

by Sophie Kamlish in London. The

1:11:111:11:17

gold medal in the final.

1:11:171:11:24

It was a good start by Laura Sugar.

The tall German in the centre lane.

1:11:341:11:44

The triple Paralympic

silver-medallist in Rio. Well, we

1:11:441:11:50

have those season's best or lifetime

best over the 60 metres distance for

1:11:501:11:57

Irmgard Bensusan. A lifetime best

has been recorded. 8.24 seconds for

1:11:571:12:05

Irmgard Bensusan. But Sophie

Kamlish, 8.47 seconds. A lifetime

1:12:051:12:12

best. A wonderful start by Laura

Sugar in lane six. But the German

1:12:121:12:17

with the long stride pulled away.

Sophie Kamlish on the right of your

1:12:171:12:25

shot. Sophie Kamlish not as clean

away.

1:12:251:12:34

away. Irmgard Bensusan, tall,

powerful, in between the two British

1:12:341:12:41

athletes. She is rewarded with a

personal best of 8.24 seconds. The

1:12:411:12:47

German T44 athlete. Victory in

Glasgow. Sophie Kamlish picking up

1:12:471:12:55

second. We can confirm that result.

Personal best for Irmgard Bensusan.

1:12:551:13:03

National record for Sophie Kamlish.

A good run by the British athlete

1:13:031:13:07

but

1:13:071:13:07

A good run by the British athlete

but Germany take the spoils.

A

1:13:071:13:11

national record but you are

disappointed? I did not get the best

1:13:111:13:15

start. I am usually faster out of

the blocks. I was a bit out of it,

1:13:151:13:20

but I am all right.

Running on a

prospective, the start and getting

1:13:201:13:25

up to speed is crucial.

And in the

100 you have longer to make up for

1:13:251:13:31

mistakes. If you get a bad start in

the hundred, it is over, the same

1:13:311:13:34

with the 60. Not super pleased, but

if it is a personal best, I cannot

1:13:341:13:41

complain.

World champion last year,

how has your confidence built?

It

1:13:411:13:45

has gone well. In the build-up to

2017 it was off the back of not

1:13:451:13:53

doing what I could have done in 2016

in terms of medals. Going back to

1:13:531:13:59

university in second year, training

every day and being at university

1:13:591:14:04

every day, I am motivated. I want to

feel what it is like to be champion

1:14:041:14:09

again, specifically in Tokyo.

We

want to watch you being a champion.

1:14:091:14:14

Congratulations. National record.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend.

1:14:141:14:18

Thank you.

1:14:181:14:19

The pole vault competition started

over an hour ago. Katerina

1:14:271:14:37

Stefanidi, the world Olympic

champion has not come in yet. This

1:14:371:14:40

is a second attempt. Got it right

that time. She is pleased with that.

1:14:401:14:48

The first athlete to go clear at the

new height. It took two jumps.

1:14:481:14:58

new height. It took two jumps. She

was record holder until Katerina

1:14:581:15:00

Stefanidi took grips of this event.

But Katerina Stefanidi has not

1:15:001:15:04

started yet. It was a good

clearance. 4.40 five. She has jumped

1:15:041:15:13

4.61 this year and you can see why.

4.81 was her best from two years

1:15:131:15:19

ago.

1:15:191:15:24

So, then, a lifetime best already

this afternoon for Molly Caudery.

1:15:241:15:32

She can throw caution to the wind

and really attack this. This will be

1:15:341:15:37

a bonus, should she be able to

propel herself over this new height.

1:15:371:15:44

Attacks it really well, but not

today. A smile from her and a solid

1:15:441:15:53

afternoon of work for the youngster.

I said earlier the youngest athlete

1:15:531:15:58

on the English team and experiences

like this will put her in good

1:15:581:16:03

stead, jumping in the spotlight is

different and she has done it again

1:16:031:16:05

very, very well. A lifetime best 4.3

to add to her British title last

1:16:051:16:15

weekend and winter's work is

exceptionally well indeed. -- going

1:16:151:16:21

exceptionally well. Rights, then.

Looking to get things back on track

1:16:211:16:32

here. She's in sixth place as we

head into the next round. That's

1:16:321:16:36

looking a little better. I think she

knows it's better than the 6.52 she

1:16:361:16:41

jumped in round two. But such is the

strength and depth in this

1:16:411:16:47

competition here today. Still got

Sagnia out in front. Lots of

1:16:471:16:59

athletes closing in on seven metres.

Jazmin Sawyers has had to pack her

1:16:591:17:05

bags. She was unable to get into the

top eight. She takes no further

1:17:051:17:09

part. Bartoletta, no improvement on

her blazing, but a 6.61 season's

1:17:091:17:14

best. Christabel Nettey, 6.62 in the

previous round will stop looks as

1:17:141:17:22

though she's faster on the approach

here. Similar kind of distance for

1:17:221:17:28

Nettey. Thoughts go to Lorraine

Rubensson, pulled her handsprings

1:17:281:17:41

hamstring. She hopes to make it back

before the Commonwealth Games.

1:17:411:17:46

Lorraine, if you're watching, I know

you could take care of this. Take

1:17:461:17:49

care of your hamstring for now.

Nettey, no improvement there. 6.6

1:17:491:17:55

zero.

1:17:551:17:58

This is the final day of the world

indoor. Conclusions to come. No

1:18:021:18:09

improvement for Nettey.

STUDIO: Coming up, it is the women's

1:18:091:18:18

60 metres hurdles final. The first

two events on the track with us two

1:18:181:18:22

heats where we saw the out and out

favourites have a stumble out of the

1:18:221:18:30

blocks and she has to put that to

one side and get her start right

1:18:301:18:34

here because it is a strong field.

This is where the mental game really

1:18:341:18:38

kicks in. It hasn't been that wrong

two long since been heats. You can't

1:18:381:18:42

overthink it. You can't over analyse

because you know she can start, it

1:18:421:18:47

you know she has that capability and

she is the fastest in the world. She

1:18:471:18:52

has just got to put that to bed now

and get out as she has done all

1:18:521:18:56

season.

That in just a moment.

Inside, just to our right here is an

1:18:561:19:05

inside arena and in about an hour or

so Greg Rutherford will be out there

1:19:051:19:10

in the mens the

1:19:101:19:14

we didn't see much of great last

year and he hopes he can get himself

1:19:171:19:20

back in shape this season. Sharika

Nelvis there, who stumbled in her

1:19:201:19:25

heat, hoping to rectify her start

COMMENTATOR: She has firmly fixed

1:19:251:19:31

her starting blocks. She is buying

for the overall IAAF title. The

1:19:311:19:38

standings going into this race,

Sharika Nelvis on 27 points.

1:19:381:19:42

Christina Manning on 24. They will

be at the world indoor

1:19:421:19:52

Championships. Sharika Nelvis is

going as US champion and Harrison

1:19:521:19:57

was second at those championships.

Christina

1:19:571:20:02

was second at those championships.

Christina Manning will go in as

1:20:021:20:04

runner-up or as winner. There is the

line-up for this final. American

1:20:041:20:10

dominated. And an American running

for Nigeria on the inside. Isabelle

1:20:101:20:15

Pederson and Nadine Visser will

certainly look to upset the

1:20:151:20:18

Americans.

1:20:181:20:20

Lindsay Lindley now running for

Nigeria. Gained a Nigerian passport

1:20:241:20:30

and the right to run through her

uncle who married someone from

1:20:301:20:34

Nigeria. Evonne Britton is down to

run in the 60 flats as well but came

1:20:341:20:38

through the heats here. She's

running in the final. Christina

1:20:381:20:44

Manning of the United States. Fifth

at the World Championships last year

1:20:441:20:50

in London and bird that the US

Championships, so hoping still for a

1:20:501:20:55

selection for Birmingham next

weekend. Sharika Nelvis recovered

1:20:551:20:59

well from the awful start. Isabelle

Pederson of Norway profited, won

1:20:591:21:09

that heat with the misfortune of

Sharika Nelvis. Alongside her,

1:21:091:21:15

Nadine Visser. She's found that

hurdling is perhaps her forte.

1:21:151:21:21

European under 23 champion in the

100-metre hurdles. Brigitte only

1:21:211:21:30

fossils -- Bridgette Owens-Mitchell,

7.94 this season. Jade Barber also

1:21:311:21:38

beat USA, the 24-year-old on the

outside. One of only three athletes

1:21:381:21:46

who have not gone under eight

seconds this season. Eight seconds

1:21:461:21:50

and 60 hurdles for women is really

the benchmark.

1:21:501:21:57

Staring down the track at the Barry

is ahead of the final of the women's

1:22:161:22:21

60 metres hurdles. -- at the

barriers.

1:22:211:22:30

A comfortable, clean and very quick

win. 7.77 Christina Manning. She'll

1:22:401:22:49

take victory in the IAAF indoor tour

and she'll be heading to the world

1:22:491:22:55

indoor Championships. She will get

$20,000 for her troubles for winning

1:22:551:22:58

that overall title.

1:22:581:23:03

that overall title. Very, very quick

time and a very good run.

Very

1:23:031:23:06

strong run. There's a lot on the

cards from selling Christina

1:23:061:23:13

Manning. She knew she had to win to

be guaranteed the spot at the world

1:23:131:23:18

indoor Championships. Really

exploding out of the blocks. Saying

1:23:181:23:21

if you want to take this from me you

have to work much harder than bat.

1:23:211:23:25

She took the lead early, worked hard

all the way through and a very fast

1:23:251:23:31

time.

It may just come down to the

fact that she wanted and needed the

1:23:311:23:34

win more.

You're spot on.

Desperately. If you run 7.73 and the

1:23:341:23:40

US Championships and finish third,

it's really a sign! It's incredible

1:23:401:23:46

sign. It's incredibly fast. We'll

see the fastest three women in the

1:23:461:23:52

world at those indoor champ issues.

They're all-American and I couldn't

1:23:521:23:55

call who's going to take the title.

It gives them a greater chance of

1:23:551:23:59

one, two, but of course Sally

Pearson who will be competing for

1:23:591:24:07

Australia there, too. That promises

to be a great event at the world

1:24:071:24:11

indoor championship but Christina

Manning taking the victory at 7.79

1:24:111:24:16

ahead of Sharika Nelvis.

1:24:161:24:18

Christina Manning with

1:24:251:24:26

Christina Manning with the victory

and is heading

1:24:261:24:27

Christina Manning with the victory

and is heading to Birmingham next

1:24:271:24:27

weekend.

You seriously needed that

went to book your place.

And feeling

1:24:271:24:37

good, blessed. I came here to win.

1:24:371:24:41

went to book your place.

And feeling

good, blessed. I came here to win.

1:24:411:24:43

You'll be going to Birmingham now.

What do you need to do between now

1:24:431:24:46

and then to prepare yourself?

Everything from year to then is

1:24:461:24:51

mental. The work is in. There's no

change or nothing!

How much of the

1:24:511:24:57

benefit is it to be able to come

over to the UK, get the competition

1:24:571:25:00

in and really acclimatised to the

conditions here?

It's really good,

1:25:001:25:03

you know, because got here Friday, I

woke up tired this morning, I was

1:25:031:25:09

tired yesterday. Came to the track

yawning. It's good.

Can you win the

1:25:091:25:14

World Indoors?

Of course. Yes, I

can. I can.

I love your confidence.

1:25:141:25:21

Look forward to seeing you next

week.

Thank you so much. Thank you.

1:25:211:25:32

Third attempt for Morgan Lulu of the

United States. She made the flight

1:25:321:25:37

across from the US and her polls

didn't make it. She's borrowing

1:25:371:25:40

across from the US and her polls

didn't make it. She's borrowing

1:25:401:25:43

polls. Always adds a bit of doubt

but on the third time of asking, 4.4

1:25:431:25:46

five. Gets it! Better. She's

thrilled.

1:25:461:25:57

As she should be because we've only

seen a couple of athletes go clear

1:25:571:26:00

at this height. I need to remind you

that the world Olympic champion

1:26:001:26:05

editor really Stefanie Fee hasn't

joined the competition yet.

1:26:051:26:13

joined the competition yet. Back to

the long jump.

1:26:141:26:20

the long jump. Moguenara is in

second place chasing the lead of

1:26:201:26:26

Sagnia. The body language tells you

everything you need to know there.

1:26:261:26:33

Looking down just to check the foot

positions. It's another decent

1:26:331:26:39

effort, though. Jumping really

nicely here in Glasgow this

1:26:391:26:45

afternoon.

1:26:451:26:54

It's 6.55 four Moguenara. No

improvement.

1:26:561:27:03

improvement. This is Khaddi Sagnia.

Jump the national record in the

1:27:031:27:05

first round of 6.9 two. Still in the

lead.

1:27:051:27:15

Has she hurt herself? I really hope

not. I think she looks OK. Just

1:27:151:27:21

missed time to that. I think she's

already let forward to the World

1:27:211:27:25

Indoors next week. Damage limitation

is. Knee strap removed. Just looking

1:27:251:27:31

after herself. Take no risks. She's

in the lead. One or two athletes

1:27:311:27:37

with jumps remaining good challenge.

STUDIO: So, let's stretch out with

1:27:371:27:46

this is once again. It's time for

the men's 1500 metres. 7.5 laps on

1:27:461:27:51

an indoor track. 13 athletes in

total. Should be a very competitive

1:27:511:27:58

race, this.

1:27:581:28:04

13 athletes in total will line-up.

Dale King-Clutterbuck will be the

1:28:081:28:14

pacemaker for Great Britain and

Northern Ireland on the outside.

1:28:141:28:21

There he is on the outside, you'll

be setting the race. Bethwel Birgen,

1:28:231:28:30

world indoor finalist in 2013.

Vincent Kibet, his team-mate, next

1:28:301:28:37

to him, the world indoor finalist in

Portland two seasons ago. 3:36.86

1:28:371:28:42

indoors in this world indoor

championship year. There is Ryan

1:28:421:28:50

Gregson. Four times now the

Australian 1500 metre champion.

1:28:501:28:55

Always battles with injuries. Back

in decent form. We saw the best of

1:28:551:29:02

Garrett Heath from the USA. There's

Tom Marshall from Cardiff. 28 years

1:29:021:29:08

old now, 3.42 at his best.

1:29:081:29:16

old now, 3.42 at his best. That was

done last season in 2017. Keep an

1:29:161:29:19

eye on JK Wood, as well, the Welsh

athlete in superb form. Drew Piazza

1:29:191:29:25

starts for the USA on the inside

line. The men's 1500 metres, as I

1:29:251:29:30

mentioned, 7.5 laps of the Emirates

Arena. A packed field here in

1:29:301:29:36

Glasgow. It's a packed field, Paula

Radcliffe, and a very competitive

1:29:361:29:42

one, as well.

It is. Safely away,

which is a good thing when there's

1:29:421:29:47

13 athletes in the field.

1:29:471:29:53

It should be a safer run for

everybody.

1:29:561:30:02

everybody. A little bit further back

in the yellow, you can see Garrett

1:30:031:30:06

Heath. Usually down the road in

Edinburgh running cross-country, but

1:30:061:30:14

a very good runner. He will be quite

happy it is gone out fast.

1:30:141:30:22

King-Clutterbuck doing his job, six

laps to go in this 1500 metres. It

1:30:221:30:27

is Birgen on his shoulder. As I

mentioned, 3:30.37, that was five

1:30:271:30:35

seasons ago now. Gregson is in the

mix. So is Kibet. A breakaway of

1:30:351:30:41

these five lap leads led by Dale

King-Clutterbuck.

It is a clean

1:30:411:30:49

break away. The chasing pack being

led by Lopez, very dangerous in a

1:30:491:30:54

slow race but this isn't a slow

race. Holusa also not looking very

1:30:541:30:58

good so far.

1:30:581:31:06

good so far.

3.33 .76 in the

marathon recently. 25.6 seconds as

1:31:061:31:10

the lap time. King-Clutterbuck doing

his job. Birgen looking very

1:31:101:31:17

comfortable.

Dale King-Clutterbuck

needs to move aside a little bit,

1:31:171:31:24

they are getting anxious behind him,

biting at his heels. Clutter but

1:31:241:31:30

moves aside and now the real race

will start. The chasing pack

1:31:301:31:36

starting to close ground.

Birgen

leading the way. He has done a

1:31:361:31:42

couple of the world tours, all

indoor ones have been in February. A

1:31:421:31:50

busy programme indeed. Birgen

seconding Dusseldorf over the

1:31:501:31:56

3,000-metre distance. Dropping down

today in the 1500 metres.

Ryan

1:31:561:32:03

Gregson looking good start in second

place. He looked really strong

1:32:031:32:06

earlier in the week to run well and

is mixing it here with Birgen and

1:32:061:32:10

Kibet. The Belgian athlete as well,

running very well so far. Making big

1:32:101:32:18

inroads on his personal best.

So,

two laps to go in a men's 1500

1:32:181:32:23

metres. Keeping an eye on Jake

Heyward, the young athlete from

1:32:231:32:26

Cardiff, he is in superb form having

broken the junior record over 3000

1:32:261:32:32

metres this winter. Could take the

indoor junior best over this

1:32:321:32:38

distance. We will keep an eye on

him. But Birgen sitting it in the

1:32:381:32:44

front, behind Clutterbuck and now

the pace increases in this men's

1:32:441:32:48

1500 metres.

Bethwel Birgen tries to

load it from the front, Gregson

1:32:481:32:54

trying to move a little wide. Has he

saved something?

Kibet looking good.

1:32:541:33:00

A 3-way battle down the back

straight in Glasgow here. It is

1:33:001:33:04

Kenya leading the way. Ryan Gregson,

the Australian Olympic finalist, has

1:33:041:33:08

he got anything left to charge

Birgen? He is going to take the

1:33:081:33:17

victory in Glasgow and, 3:37.75

seconds. Well, he was in total

1:33:171:33:24

control in that men's 1500 metres.

Put under a little pressure from

1:33:241:33:29

rags and Kibet in the end but that

well Birgen officially clocks a

1:33:291:33:34

season best of 3:37.76 seconds.

Looking very good and very dominant

1:33:341:33:40

in doing that. He led it from the

front, did a lot of the work, making

1:33:401:33:44

sure the pace was maintained after

Clutterbuck stepped aside and was

1:33:441:33:49

able to hold off a very late

challenge from Vincent Kibet, who

1:33:491:33:53

probably left it a little too late

and try to come on the inside where

1:33:531:33:56

there was not space to do that.

So,

Birgen takes the victory. No major

1:33:561:34:01

British representation here. The

British champion last week will be

1:34:011:34:07

going to the British Championships.

Look at that, the wide eyed look

1:34:071:34:14

from Birgen. Gregson grits his

teeth, but it was the Kenyan's date.

1:34:141:34:23

Jake Heyward, incidentally, finished

with a personal best. STUDIO: Next

1:34:231:34:30

up we have the heat of the women's

60 metres. It is loaded, featuring

1:34:301:34:35

three of the top four from the World

Championships. Dafne Schippers, Dina

1:34:351:34:44

Asher-Smith in the mix. COMMENTATOR:

The final of the women's 200 metres.

1:34:441:34:51

She will start to power, Dina

Asher-Smith went very quickly

1:34:511:34:56

indeed. Now here comes Dafne

Schippers. It is Dina Asher-Smith at

1:34:561:35:04

the moment, can she hold on? The

American trying to come through.

1:35:041:35:09

Dina Asher-Smith going for bronze.

It is Schippers ahead! Dina

1:35:091:35:19

Asher-Smith fourth at the World

Championships, and it is 22.07 for

1:35:191:35:24

Dafne Schippers, the champion defend

her title. She is champion again.

1:35:241:35:31

STUDIO: And of course, it was one of

those races of many races in London,

1:35:311:35:37

we saw that young talent getting so

close, so close to medals.

1:35:371:35:41

we saw that young talent getting so

close, so close to medals. Dina

1:35:411:35:42

Asher-Smith had had the most

terrible season in terms of the

1:35:421:35:45

injury, the timing of injury, which

happened about a year ago the

1:35:451:35:50

burning indoor championship and that

saw her miss huge points for the

1:35:501:35:53

season. She was coming late into

London in many ways we felt if it

1:35:531:35:57

was two weeks later even, she would

have been pushing herself right into

1:35:571:36:00

those medals. It was in many ways a

breakthrough championship for her.

I

1:36:001:36:05

think it was breakthrough for so

many reasons. I think a lot of

1:36:051:36:08

people thought she wouldn't even

make it back for this championship

1:36:081:36:12

but the majority and the

relationship between her, the coach,

1:36:121:36:14

the medical team, that really

crafted that journey right to the

1:36:141:36:20

Championships and boy did she

compete very well. Converting the

1:36:201:36:24

fifth place she had in the past

fourth, so she's going in the right

1:36:241:36:28

direction. That wonderful medal she

got with the relay team as well.

A

1:36:281:36:32

good year in the end. British

athletes having to make strategic

1:36:321:36:36

choices this is, do they go all out,

do the indoor season, the worlds

1:36:361:36:40

next week in the Commonwealth Games

sacrifice one of those questioned

1:36:401:36:43

what she is one going out early to

Australia next week, because she

1:36:431:36:47

will miss the world indoors and

focus on the Commonwealth Games.

1:36:471:36:52

This is her last meet indoors. It is

important, such an important

1:36:521:36:57

stepping stone for young athletes,

but in her case, an experienced

1:36:571:37:02

championship athlete but she wants

those medals.

Elaine Thompson just

1:37:021:37:06

there on her left hand side, who of

course, double Olympic champion bust

1:37:061:37:10

up one of the Jamaicans who didn't

reach their potential in London but

1:37:101:37:15

she is still very much a world-class

athlete. Andrew Cotter.

What a

1:37:151:37:22

line-up over the two hits for the

women's 60 metres. Schippers and

1:37:221:37:28

Elaine Thompson alongside Dina

Asher-Smith and Jamile Samuel. One

1:37:281:37:35

of the strongest events here, so

let's fill you in with the runners

1:37:351:37:41

of the strongest events here, so

let's fill you in with the runners

1:37:411:37:41

and riders in this first heat.

Evonne Britton does not start, as we

1:37:411:37:46

suspected. She just ran in the final

of the hurdles and finished eighth.

1:37:461:37:50

They do line-up as follows:

1:37:501:38:00

there is Fabunmi-Alade. She ran in

Lea Valley last month, a new

1:38:041:38:11

personal best for her. The

23-year-old who is making great

1:38:111:38:18

strides. Jamile Samuel, you think of

Dutch sprinters, indoors as well,

1:38:181:38:21

you think back to the 80s. Jamile

Samuel a great starter as well. In

1:38:211:38:30

the relay squad also. Elaine

Thompson, the Olympic champion in

1:38:301:38:34

Rio in 100 metres and 200 metres,

disappointing World Championship.

1:38:341:38:38

She was ill and finished fifth in

the 100 metres. And Dina Asher-Smith

1:38:381:38:45

will smile and will get the noise of

this Glasgow crowd.

Dina

1:38:451:38:51

Asher-Smith!

APPLAUSE

What a year last year, the injury

1:38:511:38:56

around about this time before the

Birmingham meeting and then a race

1:38:561:38:59

against time to be fit and then

finishing fourth in the 200 metres.

1:38:591:39:04

Rosangela Santos of Brazil, the

South American record-holder. She

1:39:041:39:10

won in the north of France recently.

Calvert-Powell of Jamaica. Unlike

1:39:101:39:16

many of the Jamaican athletes, she

has run a pretty full indoor season,

1:39:161:39:20

first in North America and then

across to Europe. And Raven Clay of

1:39:201:39:24

the United States.

1:39:241:39:30

the United States. In the zone.

1:39:301:39:34

So we have lost one from this heat

with Evonne Britton not running. It

1:39:351:39:40

is Fabunmi-Alade, the Swansea

Harrier in two, Samuel on three,

1:39:401:39:45

Elaine Thompson in four, Dina

Asher-Smith alongside her and Santos

1:39:451:39:48

of Brazil, Calvert-Powell of Jamaica

and Raven Clay. Two hits, three to

1:39:481:39:55

go through automatically. Elaine

Thompson running 6.98 this time last

1:39:551:40:01

year, how fast can she go here?

1:40:011:40:07

Set...

A little twitch at the blocks for

1:40:071:40:13

Asher-Smith, she went very quickly.

Elaine Thompson left at the moment.

1:40:131:40:17

Asher-Smith going to the line, 7.07.

Impressive. Elaine Thompson was

1:40:171:40:23

dog-eared towards the end but that

is a very, very strong for Dina

1:40:231:40:26

Asher-Smith. Again, you wonder what

sort of form people are in at this

1:40:261:40:29

time of the season. We talked about

her going to be Commonwealth Games

1:40:291:40:33

are not the world indoors that 7.07,

and you just tucks in behind only

1:40:331:40:38

Asha Philip has run faster indoors

in UK terms. Just 100th of a second

1:40:381:40:43

behind. That is a very, very quick

time.

A great time in the heat, as

1:40:431:40:48

you said. 7.08 it's then rounded up

to, equal to her best performance.

1:40:481:40:55

No messing about, a very

professional job. Worked hard at the

1:40:551:40:59

blocks, kept my try head, brilliant

to see that. Let's hear what she has

1:40:591:41:03

to say.

1:41:031:41:07

You are happy and you should be, it

was impressive?

Thank you, I'm

1:41:071:41:11

happy. I felt good coming to this

competition. I knew I wanted to put

1:41:111:41:14

together a good performance in front

of the home crowd. Scottish crowd,

1:41:141:41:18

but still home crowd and I'm happy

to have done that. I've alike have

1:41:181:41:21

got a little bit more in different

bits to kind of give, but I am

1:41:211:41:24

looking forward to the second round.

What did you think of that heat?

It

1:41:241:41:29

was very loaded? So many talented

athletes. Was just concentrating on

1:41:291:41:34

my own late race and lane and do

what I have been doing in training,

1:41:341:41:39

and happy.

Adil Rana hold you too

much because of a final but what

1:41:391:41:43

between now and the final?

Have a

snack, chat with my physios and

1:41:431:41:48

friends and relax and then focus and

ready to hopefully go a little

1:41:481:41:52

quicker in the final.

A little

quicker, we can't wait to see that!

1:41:521:41:56

Thank you.

Snack time. Dina

Asher-Smith, 7.08 it has been

1:41:561:42:04

rounded up to. A long

1:42:041:42:05

Asher-Smith, 7.08 it has been

rounded up to. A long way clear of

1:42:051:42:07

Elaine Thompson. Interesting to see

how much Elaine Thompson has in the

1:42:071:42:10

final, felt she was running on

herself after the sluggish start.

1:42:101:42:13

Jamile Samuel also going through

automatically.

1:42:131:42:22

automatically. The last round now of

the long jump. Nettey. Barter letter

1:42:221:42:29

is one place behind her. Nettey

trying to improve on faith.

1:42:291:42:40

High-class competition. Where is

that? 6.62, her best so far in the

1:42:401:42:46

third round. Been very consistent.

She has had jumps of 6.55 and 6.6

1:42:461:42:54

zero. It is another jump in that

vicinity.

1:42:541:43:01

vicinity. Nettey, well, it's a funny

competition. You get the athletes

1:43:011:43:05

are jockeying for position ahead of

the world indoor Championships,

1:43:051:43:08

feeling their way in. 6.62, matched

the same distance she jumped on the

1:43:081:43:13

third round but stayed in fifth.

Another North America, Quanesha

1:43:131:43:22

Burks of the USA. One place ahead of

the Canadian. Unorthodox start,

1:43:221:43:30

strides out hard, drives the arm,

sprinting... It was very quick.

1:43:301:43:38

Through the jump. Maybe didn't quite

get the height but Burks has jumped

1:43:381:43:44

6.72 so far and again, that left

hand coming out the pit, not happy

1:43:441:43:50

with that, but loads of space to

spare. Let's look at her left

1:43:501:43:54

hand... If it lands before her feet

it would assist her. Not sure of

1:43:541:43:59

that. I will have a look at my rule

book in a moment. 6.72, fourth

1:43:591:44:03

place, it is an improvement. 6.73 a

season best.

1:44:031:44:13

season best. So, Madden are passed

after the halfway stage.

1:44:151:44:19

There is a winner, Sagnia, a young

Swede, one to look forward to be

1:44:191:44:24

World Championship next weekend. Big

smiles from her and a win in

1:44:241:44:26

Glasgow. So then

1:44:261:44:35

Glasgow. So then that two Heights

where she has needed two jumps to

1:44:351:44:39

get over, now at the height of 4.4

five. Her team-mates still hasn't

1:44:391:44:46

entered the competition. Over an

hour and a half since we started.

1:44:461:44:48

She has got clear this time on the

first time of asking. Powerful

1:44:481:44:53

stuff.

1:44:531:44:58

She had a year out last year for the

birth of her daughter, her first

1:44:581:45:02

child. She's back in great shape.

His season's best. But, as I say,

1:45:021:45:10

her team-mate has kept her powder

dry. Good clearance therefrom

1:45:101:45:17

Kiriakopoulou. Goes into the World

Indoors as a medal contender. Good

1:45:171:45:26

celebrations from her.

STUDIO: So we know that Dina

1:45:261:45:34

Asher-Smith, winner of the first

heat. Use your line-up for the

1:45:341:45:38

second heat of the women's 60

metres.

1:45:381:45:45

The two fastest in the field are

lining up to qualify along Elaine

1:45:461:45:52

Thompson and others for the final.

Diani Walker will start in lane one.

1:45:521:45:57

7.35 seconds her best last season.

Semifinalist at UK indoor champ

1:45:571:46:03

digits last weekend. Asian games

champion over 100 metres in 2014.

1:46:031:46:15

Quanesha Burks of the USA. US long

jump champion back in 2015. Second

1:46:151:46:24

at the US Championships indoors last

weekend. Then the tall, familiar

1:46:241:46:29

figure of the flying Dutchwoman

Dafne Schippers. Twice the world

1:46:291:46:33

champion at 200 metres and a list.

7.09 seconds this season. She'll

1:46:331:46:39

start in lane number four. Shorter

in height but similar in speed.

1:46:391:46:45

Marie Josee Ta Lou of the Ivory

Coast. Fourth in Rio. Doubles over

1:46:451:46:53

last year. 7.07 this season.

Christiana Williams of Jamaica will

1:46:531:46:59

start in sixth. Olympic finalist in

Rio. 7.19 seconds outdoor over 60

1:46:591:47:07

metres this year. Imani Lansiquot of

Great Britain in lane seven. Fifth

1:47:071:47:13

on the tour this year over the

60-metre distance will stop Shaneil

1:47:131:47:19

English completing the line-up.

18-year-old. Personal-best this year

1:47:191:47:24

7.61 seconds. The two fastest in the

field are Dafne Schippers in for and

1:47:241:47:33

Marie Josee Ta Lou in five. They do

battle all the time, the fastest

1:47:331:47:37

women in the world. Their first task

is to get into the top three to

1:47:371:47:42

automatically qualify for the final

later. Just before 5pm. What a treat

1:47:421:47:46

it would be to have Dina

Asher-Smith, Thomson, Schippers,

1:47:461:47:53

lining up later in Glasgow. Second

heat of the women's 60 metres.

1:47:531:48:05

A clean start.

1:48:051:48:12

Dafne Schippers is out of automatic

qualifying.

1:48:121:48:19

A touch of appreciation from Marie

Josee Ta Lou. Dafne Schippers had a

1:48:191:48:28

false start in Gent. She was the

Bush champion, but not automatically

1:48:281:48:35

in a qualifying spot, Dafne

Schippers. So we await the results.

1:48:351:48:47

7.16 seconds. A personal best for

staining Quanesha Burks. Williams of

1:48:471:48:57

Jamaica third in automatic

qualifying.

I was watching Dafne

1:48:571:49:01

Schippers very closely. She just

ambled out of the blocks. There was

1:49:011:49:04

no real Drive, grit or

determination. Of course when you

1:49:041:49:08

are up against someone like Marie

Josee Ta Lou, you can't mess about.

1:49:081:49:16

She no -- we know she's capable of

the drive. She works hard, looks

1:49:161:49:20

nice and bouncy, but a real

struggle.

1:49:201:49:29

struggle.

She's been in decent form.

7.09. Her start let her down and you

1:49:291:49:35

can't have that over a 60-metre

indoor distance.

Not at all. We know

1:49:351:49:39

what she's capable of. She's gone

close to the seven second mark

1:49:391:49:43

before. She ran 7.09 English

championships so we do expect a lot

1:49:431:49:48

more from her but let's see what

happens.

The results are scrolling

1:49:481:49:52

through. I think Dafne Schippers,

who lets out the air because she

1:49:521:49:59

didn't run well.

1:49:591:50:02

I think by the skin of her Dutch

teeth, Dafne Schippers has got a

1:50:111:50:16

fastest non-automatic qualifying

spot with 7.29 seconds and will join

1:50:161:50:23

Imani Lansiquot of Great Britain and

Northern Ireland. The second bite of

1:50:231:50:27

the cherry potentially for

1:50:271:50:28

Northern Ireland. The second bite of

the cherry potentially for the Dutch

1:50:281:50:29

athlete. Dina Asher-Smith with 7.08

seconds. Will she challenged the

1:50:291:50:36

British record later?

1:50:361:50:37

seconds. Will she challenged the

British record later? She looked in

1:50:371:50:39

great shape. Very comfortable in

deeper. Schippers was shaking your

1:50:391:50:46

head, it didn't quite go right for

her. She is more dominate than in

1:50:461:50:52

100-metre running. This shorter

distance, it's that much more

1:50:521:50:55

difficult for endurance runners

because you used to gaining ground

1:50:551:50:58

later in the race but it looked more

than that.

I don't know. She's

1:50:581:51:03

better over long distances. When

you're running shorter distances,

1:51:031:51:09

her weakness is her blocks and I

know she's been working on that

1:51:091:51:13

consistently. But it will get

exposed over the shorter distances.

1:51:131:51:16

She seemed to be running a lot of

high-frequency but with no power or

1:51:161:51:21

a length to it at all. She just got

left and luckily she just got in by

1:51:211:51:26

the skin of her teeth.

We want to

see her. She is a global medallist

1:51:261:51:30

and world champion. We want to see

her in the final. Let's get back

1:51:301:51:33

outside because Steve Backley the

pole vault competition is reaching

1:51:331:51:38

its crescendo.

1:51:381:51:40

pole vault competition is reaching

its crescendo.

1:51:401:51:40

COMMENTATOR: Certainly is.

1:51:401:51:46

COMMENTATOR: Certainly is. The

Olympic world champion, she has

1:51:461:51:51

dominated the event in recent years,

Katerina Stefanidi. She carries a

1:51:511:51:55

dominated the event in recent years,

Katerina Stefanidi. She carries a

1:51:551:51:55

foul at this height of 4.6 five. Her

team-mate went clear. She needs to

1:51:551:52:02

improve year. She does. As

suspected. I can only put that down

1:52:021:52:06

to the way it she's had. She

1:52:061:52:10

suspected. I can only put that down

to the way it she's had. She needed

1:52:101:52:11

to get back in and maybe warm up

again. 18 consecutive victories

1:52:111:52:16

coming into this competition for

Stefanidi. Her team-mate is putting

1:52:161:52:21

out the best challenge and this is

well within her capabilities. 4.65,

1:52:211:52:30

a good clearance at the second time

of asking.

We've mentioned Great

1:52:301:52:36

Britain had a number of fourth-place

finishes and last year's

1:52:361:52:40

Championship but not many close to a

bronze than Kyle Langford. Is late

1:52:401:52:44

surge took him to in four 100th of

second of that bronze medal. He's

1:52:441:52:47

back here today looking to improve

on that in a field that is

1:52:471:52:53

high-class in the 800 metres, which

would be a few more laps than he's

1:52:531:52:57

used to.

COMMENTATOR: It's a good season for

1:52:571:53:03

Kyle Langford after that

fourth-place. More attention on him,

1:53:031:53:06

more profile. Folding his arms,

looking up, waiting for the

1:53:061:53:08

introduction. He has run well this

indoor season already. 1:46.43.

1:53:081:53:18

Seventh on the all-time list, but a

very powerful line-up here. Two

1:53:181:53:23

great Polish athletes.

1:53:231:53:30

He is up against it here.

1:53:301:53:34

Just going off for a further warm

up. Every fast raised needs a Bram

1:53:421:53:49

Som. He was European champions

himself eight years ago. He's been

1:53:491:53:57

fulfilling role of pacemaker for a

good few years. He's taken a 400

1:53:571:54:02

metres in 51 seconds. Again, this

line-up, it's interesting when you

1:54:021:54:06

look at Kyle Langford. He's almost

made for indoor running, as well.

1:54:061:54:09

He's very powerful. I get the

impression he enjoys the cut and

1:54:091:54:16

thrust of the more confined space.

I

think he does but I also think he

1:54:161:54:20

has some Dunn something to learn

tactics wise. It is a good learning

1:54:201:54:26

game for him, indoors. Certain

looking ahead to the Commonwealth

1:54:261:54:28

Games. Get just into it with racing

and where he needs to put himself in

1:54:281:54:34

the race.

He didn't race in the UK

indoor Championships. Elliot Giles

1:54:341:54:41

won that. Kyle Langford

concentrating on other things and

1:54:411:54:46

raced well in New York where he ran

1:46.40 three. He was ill just ahead

1:54:461:54:51

of Boston's had to pull out there.

Erik Sowinski just next to the pace,

1:54:511:54:59

Bram Som. Marcin Lewandowski isn't

1:54:591:55:05

Twice World Championship, silver

medal, a great 800-metre winner now

1:55:111:55:17

for a few years. He tells to get it

right on the big occasions. Judges

1:55:171:55:20

it so well. Jake Wightman and Kyle

Langford. They share lane four.

1:55:201:55:31

Kyle Langford, still just 22 and

learning all the time. So many

1:55:381:55:44

tactics and experience today.

Lewandowski. He'll be using this as

1:55:441:55:49

a trial.

1:55:491:55:55

a trial.

I think a lot of next week

will be decided in this race.

1:55:551:56:04

will be decided in this race.

The

Liverpool Harrier Jamie Webb is the

1:56:041:56:07

UK indoor champion from a couple of

years ago. Webb goes on the inside.

1:56:071:56:15

Langford looks surprised to be here.

He's wondering. He'll be held for a

1:56:251:56:33

while then he had to do another one

up and ready to go now in the men's

1:56:331:56:36

800 metres. A little bit of noise

there with the field events going on

1:56:361:56:42

unsettled them.

1:56:421:56:50

Incredulously from Kyle Langford.

What on earth is going on? He and

1:56:521:56:59

Jamie Webb set off together.

Incredibly strong finish in the 800

1:56:591:57:06

at the World Championships outdoors.

Sometimes that spell from 400 to six

1:57:061:57:10

metres a users to switch off a

little bit. He's getting himself in

1:57:101:57:15

a good position, having to just ease

his way out into the open at the

1:57:151:57:20

moment. Nobody really is going with

Bram Som.

One thing you can say

1:57:201:57:26

about Bram Som is he will get to 400

metres in the pacey was asked to do

1:57:261:57:30

but the rest of the field not keen

to go with him. Erik Sowinski trying

1:57:301:57:38

to make up from the frustration of

not making the team. I'd like to see

1:57:381:57:42

the British guys move a bit closer.

It's not Som's responsibility. He

1:57:421:57:51

will run at the pacey is asked to.

Only Sowinski going with him at the

1:57:511:57:57

moment. Others just looking up at

the screen.

1:57:571:58:08

Jake Wightman has paced this well so

far.

1:58:131:58:20

It's a bit busy. Sowinski looks to

be beaten.

1:58:331:58:44

A Polish one, two with Jake Wightman

in third and Langford a little bit

1:58:481:58:53

too far behind and to which to do in

the latter stages.

In fairness, Kyle

1:58:531:58:58

Langford was ill in Boston. Wasn't

able to take part in the race that

1:58:581:59:01

after he had run so well the week

before. Maybe he started to recover

1:59:011:59:06

from that and looks as though he was

trying to track and if you're going

1:59:061:59:09

to pick someone to track, that's the

right thing to do. Gase shot could

1:59:091:59:19

be beaten. Is busily running really

well off that and looking good going

1:59:191:59:26

into the World Championships next

week. Lewandowski made a good

1:59:261:59:30

decision to make up there. A

personal best by Jake Wightman. He

1:59:301:59:36

judged that race very well. He may

be burnt a little bit too much of

1:59:361:59:42

his energy trying to make up the

ground and the gap that Sowinski had

1:59:421:59:48

built up early on. Kyle Langford

trying to move out wide. Just can't

1:59:481:59:55

quite pull the finish he usually has

in the closing stages and Jake

1:59:551:59:59

Wightman plays that very well and

judged him very well.

He always

1:59:592:00:05

judges it so well. These are two of

the best and most experienced

2:00:052:00:09

middle-distance runners in the world

and have been for a while.

2:00:092:00:15

Lewandowski doesn't quite have the

pace. Alan Keyes sought rarely gets

2:00:152:00:21

it wrong.

2:00:212:00:26

it wrong. Lewandowski has a decision

to make on which distance he will

2:00:282:00:31

run at the World Indoors, 800 1500.

He was second to his compatriot

2:00:312:00:35

here. Adam run that last 400 metres

in 54.5 for the victory.

2:00:352:00:46

Very good run from Jake Wightman.

STUDIO: The men's long jump

2:00:462:00:54

competition coming up just after

4:15pm, featuring Greg Rutherford,

2:00:542:00:58

who missed most of our season

because of growing and ankle

2:00:582:01:01

injuries. He has had surgery this

winter and is making his comeback at

2:01:012:01:04

the moment. Dropped himself in a

good position last week, taking the

2:01:042:01:10

British title and has decided he is

going to use today perhaps to see

2:01:102:01:14

exactly where he is. If he makes an

appearance at the world indoor

2:01:142:01:19

Championships next week we will see

but Colin Jackson spoke to him about

2:01:192:01:22

the challenges he is having.

2:01:222:01:24

but Colin Jackson spoke to him about

the challenges he is having.

It is

2:01:242:01:26

lovely to be back, nice to be an

athlete against it as part of my

2:01:262:01:30

body definitely don't feel very

athletic at the moment. Had a bit of

2:01:302:01:33

a rough time of last year, I think

it was documented that I was dealing

2:01:332:01:37

with a lot of injuries. Remarkably,

mid-January comes around and I was

2:01:372:01:43

probably jumping better than last

summer! We turned around and said,

2:01:432:01:45

we will give it a go and see what

happens.

Commonwealth Games, the

2:01:452:01:50

Championships directly after the

world indoors, any decision is fully

2:01:502:01:53

on that or are you still up in the

air?

I haven't officially pulled

2:01:532:01:58

myself out of it. If I don't feel I

have the ability to do it, then it's

2:01:582:02:01

not right to do, I think. By doing

the Commonwealth Games as well, I

2:02:012:02:06

risk hugely pushing myself back for

a summer... If I win the European

2:02:062:02:10

Championships again, which I think I

can, I become the first long jumper

2:02:102:02:14

to do three on the trot.

I don't

really know how to say this but of

2:02:142:02:19

all the stats, you're the only one.

I'm finding myself like the old man

2:02:192:02:27

now hanging around. I walk around on

kids, Golden Tate because some of

2:02:272:02:31

them are! I'll be honest, I was

considering it. If I get to a point

2:02:312:02:37

where my body is telling me that I

can't do it, I will get out. But it

2:02:372:02:41

would be nice to go to a fourth

Olympics.

What would please you this

2:02:412:02:46

weekend?

I will know if I am going

over eight metres this weekend that

2:02:462:02:49

I will go and be competitive. If I

can do that, I will be thrilled.

2:02:492:02:54

That will be, even for me, one of

the fastest turnarounds from a rough

2:02:542:03:00

period of injuries and surgeries.

Fingers crossed!

Hopefully.

STUDIO:

2:03:002:03:05

It is not about the rest of the

field today but Greg pitting himself

2:03:052:03:09

against his own body and ceiling

where he is after those injuries.

2:03:092:03:14

That just after 4:15pm. Let's get

back out on the track for the

2:03:142:03:18

fastest men in the Emirates Arena

today. It is the men's 60 metres

2:03:182:03:25

heat one and Adam Gemili, world

champion in the 4x100 metres

2:03:252:03:28

heat one and Adam Gemili, world

champion in the 4x100 metres goes on

2:03:282:03:30

this one. COMMENTATOR: He does

indeed, lining up in way number six

2:03:302:03:34

in this first heat of the men's 60

metres. Nonautomatic finals will go

2:03:342:03:38

to the final just after five

o'clock. Adam Gemili, Commonwealth

2:03:382:03:44

Games bound in 2018, that is how he

is starting off his championship.

2:03:442:03:50

6.62 seconds this season, just a

little outside his lifetime best. He

2:03:502:03:54

will be looking to put on a good

performance, as will the Mander,

2:03:542:03:58

bouncing up and down there, shaking

and dancing in main number four. The

2:03:582:04:05

athlete from China, unbeaten in six

races this season, the preevent

2:04:052:04:09

favourite coming into this men's 60

metres. There is your fall line-up.

2:04:092:04:15

British representation in abundance,

as you would expect. Their blocks

2:04:152:04:18

have been set. Here is your line-up,

and a number two, Ryan Shields of

2:04:182:04:25

Jamaica.

2:04:252:04:31

Jamaica. 34 years old now. In-line

number three, the UK champion over

2:04:312:04:35

100 metres last year. He went on to

reach the world final in London,

2:04:352:04:41

Reece Prescod. 21 years old. What

has the young man got in 2018? Inlay

2:04:412:04:48

number four, 20 and Sue of China,

the world number three. An Asian

2:04:482:04:53

record. He has been on fire on the

IAAF world indoor tour this year.

2:04:532:05:01

Outside of Su, lane five, Bryce

Robinson making his European indoor

2:05:012:05:06

debut here. We welcome you to

Glasgow inlay number five. For that

2:05:062:05:11

the US Championships last again.

Then there will be a bleak Glasgow

2:05:112:05:15

Royal -- big Glasgow Royal for Adam

Gemili, a member of the gold winning

2:05:152:05:20

relay squad. Just missed out on

bronze in Rio. In-line number seven,

2:05:202:05:25

world indoor bound, second at the UK

Championships last weekend, Andrew

2:05:252:05:31

Robertson. 6.62 seconds this season.

Completing the line-up, from the

2:05:312:05:39

Netherlands, Churandy Martina.

2:05:392:05:45

Netherlands, Churandy Martina. 43

years old, and still going strong!

2:05:452:05:48

So, hits number one of the men's 60

metres. -- heat number one. Prescod

2:05:482:05:55

in three. Su in four.

2:05:552:06:02

in three. Su in four. Gemili there,

Robertson in seven. The first three

2:06:022:06:04

guaranteed a place in the final. We

have had some super running in 2018

2:06:042:06:10

so far over men's 60 metres. We are

looking for that to continue.

2:06:102:06:17

So, pretty even start. Robertsone

away reasonably well. The American

2:06:242:06:28

going well in lane five. Well, Su of

China, I said he has been unbeaten

2:06:282:06:34

in six races in three hits and three

finals. Just grabs the win, 6.57

2:06:342:06:40

seconds. He has been a revelation

this year, Colin Jackson, indoor so

2:06:402:06:46

far.

Really sensational. I was

wondering how he was going to take

2:06:462:06:51

this first heat because normally he

doesn't run particularly fast in the

2:06:512:06:54

first round will stop a really

competent run. But when it comes to

2:06:542:06:59

the final, he steps it up to another

gear. Again, as you see, didn't

2:06:592:07:04

really get out, did he, Su? Not a

normal starter in that sense. Adam

2:07:042:07:09

Gemili always strong at the end.

Third place, just ahead of Reece

2:07:092:07:15

Prescod, I think. But Su takes that

and eases his way into the final. I

2:07:152:07:19

still think there is a couple of

metres left in that man.

Well, by

2:07:192:07:24

one hundredth of a second, Su of

China keeps his unbeaten run going.

2:07:242:07:28

He will be in the final later. There

is confirmation.

2:07:282:07:36

is confirmation. Prescod grabbed the

third automatic qualifying spot.

2:07:362:07:40

Adam Gemili will have to wait.

2:07:402:07:47

Only two athletes remain in this

pole vault competition. Out in front

2:07:472:07:58

is. Carrying two fouls at 4.75, as

is her team-mate. It will be a great

2:07:582:08:13

one, two. Very slow in the bend that

at 4.75 to

2:08:132:08:24

at 4.75 to much for Nikoleta

Kiriakopoulou. That is a foul, she

2:08:242:08:27

crossed the line at the bar. Three

fouls. But she is in the lead. So,

2:08:272:08:36

to protect and 18 strong winning

streak Katerina Stefanidi. She has

2:08:362:08:50

to remain clean here. The world

Olympic champion under some pressure

2:08:502:08:56

when the going gets tough. Good

heavens, brilliant!

2:08:562:09:06

heavens, brilliant! Stefanidi, maybe

she just needed that extra bit of

2:09:062:09:12

pressure from Kiriakopoulou. Her

work is done. Stefanidi, this is

2:09:122:09:16

only her fifth jump of the

afternoon, only her second

2:09:162:09:20

successful jump. A bit of a sloppy

competition, but Stefanidi has been

2:09:202:09:25

utterly dominant and she does it

through consistency and delivering

2:09:252:09:29

when it matters. She is not

necessarily miles above the

2:09:292:09:33

opposition, but she is just a

supreme competitor and she proves

2:09:332:09:36

once again.

2:09:362:09:39

So then, ahead of the world indoors

it looks like the great jumpers are

2:09:422:09:46

in great shape. Meanwhile, there's

suspense builds ahead of the men's

2:09:462:09:54

second heat of the 60 metres. A very

tight race, the first heat. This but

2:09:542:09:59

line-up for the second... Edoburun

looking to make up for the indoors.

2:09:592:10:07

Kim Collins going in lane two.

2:10:072:10:13

They will run shortly but we will

head back to the field, because

2:10:132:10:18

Stefanidi has won the competition,

and this is her third chance to

2:10:182:10:24

improve a season's Best Buy just one

centimetres. She jumped 4.83 in

2:10:242:10:30

France eight days ago. She has

improved in every competition so far

2:10:302:10:38

this year.

2:10:382:10:41

Getting some close-up shots of the

Olympic champion. She has been

2:10:432:10:50

dominant. She won here last year in

this event, I should say. Great view

2:10:502:10:58

there of the reverse angle of her

approach. You can see she stands 30

2:10:582:11:02

metres or so back from the uprights.

Two fouls so far, and she has to

2:11:022:11:12

master every positive thought, of

course, in preparation to go clear.

2:11:122:11:17

Hard to tell really any technical

challenges she has had, but it has

2:11:172:11:24

been a sloppy competition so far by

her own standards. Look at all of

2:11:242:11:29

the crosses, the fouls so far. So,

4.84, third time of asking for

2:11:292:11:35

Stefanidi. Too much! May be saving

it for next week, it matters more

2:11:352:11:40

there. The victory is hers. A Greek

one, two. Stefanidi with a jump of

2:11:402:11:49

4.75 wins here in Glasgow.

2:11:492:11:51

Sprinters are just waiting for

Stefanidi and the pole vault to

2:11:532:11:58

finish thereafter than's work and we

are just about ready for the second

2:11:582:12:02

heat in the first round of the men's

60 metres. The final at 5:08pm. It

2:12:022:12:07

is the line-up. To guard a on the

inside. -- Otugade on the inside.

2:12:072:12:20

Kim Collins runs in lane two.

Ageless. Except he's not, he's 41.

2:12:202:12:30

Andrew Fisher, the Jamaican who runs

the Bahrain goes in lane three. A

2:12:302:12:42

very, quick starter. Ujah, he's

doing it the other way, prioritising

2:12:422:12:45

world indoors are not going to the

Commonwealth Games. A man in great

2:12:452:12:53

form, Mike Rodgers, he could

challenge for the indoor title.

2:12:532:13:06

Edoburun got it wrong last time. He

has run very quickly this season,

2:13:062:13:16

6.5 eight. Sam Gordon, what a run he

had in Birmingham at the UK

2:13:162:13:24

Championships, third behind

Robertson and Ujah. 6.67 his

2:13:242:13:28

personal best. On the outside from

Slovenia, Bujna. Slovakia, I

2:13:282:13:37

apologise.

2:13:372:13:43

apologise. Very, very different

countries! Bujna is on the outside.

2:13:432:13:46

Rogers alongside Goodger. Kim

Collins, the great Kim Collins,

2:13:462:13:54

former world champion in lane two.

2:13:542:13:58

Look out for these two, Ujah and

Mike Rodgers alongside each other.

2:14:002:14:05

Three go through automatically. Keep

an eye on the times because Gemili's

2:14:052:14:09

time in the first heat hanging on as

one of the fastest losers. And

2:14:092:14:15

Andrew Fisher, keep on running. He

knows there will be no need to have

2:14:152:14:24

to wait and get the card, but...

Andrew Fisher knows, holding his

2:14:242:14:35

finger to his lips owing some noise

put him off, Colin.

It is always

2:14:352:14:40

worth giving that ago in seeing what

the officials do but I'm not sure

2:14:402:14:43

he's going to get away with that, if

I'm honest.

I was briefly unsighted.

2:14:432:14:52

She will have none of it.

2:14:522:14:54

I disagree strongly with your

actions, says Fisher, but the card

2:15:032:15:08

is near. Fisher is no more. One of

the clueless false starts you will

2:15:082:15:13

see. It did not seem to be too

noisy.

2:15:132:15:22

Let's have another look, just for

prosperity.

2:15:252:15:36

prosperity. -- posterity. There is

no argument. We are not hearing the

2:15:362:15:43

sound but there is no argument.

2:15:432:15:49

It is a good start by Rodgers. CJ

Ujah trying to get back. Kim Collins

2:15:512:15:56

running well. A very good run by

Michael Rodgers. CJ Ujah and

2:15:562:16:03

Edoburun after all that. It is a

quick enough time as well. We look

2:16:032:16:06

at the times of the others. I think

Adam Gemili will be OK to go

2:16:062:16:12

through. Michael Rodgers is so

experienced. He has been around for

2:16:122:16:15

so long. He is such a quick starter.

Edoburun in second place, Ujah in

2:16:152:16:23

third. Kim Collins will go through

with Gemili is the two fastest

2:16:232:16:27

losers. It was a decent run. We are

looking at Ujah

2:16:272:16:37

looking at Ujah categories UK title,

but Rodgers left a little bag -- a

2:16:372:16:39

little.

You expect that from

Rodgers. He works hard for the first

2:16:392:16:41

30 metres. Ujah has to concentrate

and not get paid. He can haul

2:16:412:16:46

himself through and get the

qualification, which is what he has

2:16:462:16:49

got.

You are through to the final

but how do you feel about that

2:16:492:16:55

performance?

I sat in the blocks a

bit. It is nice to qualify and get

2:16:552:16:59

ready for the final.

You say you sat

in the blocks, there was a false

2:16:592:17:05

start, how does that play with your

main?

As a professional athlete, you

2:17:052:17:09

have to go again, it does not play

with my mind.

I have got to get

2:17:092:17:14

ready for the next round.

What is

the process? Taken it up more, turn

2:17:142:17:19

up and win the you.

2:17:192:17:26

See JJ is safely through, second

best on that the cage into Edoburun.

2:17:262:17:30

I did run for him. Just outside his

personal best. Michael Rodgers

2:17:302:17:36

heading them all. Kim Collins also

through, with the same time as Adam

2:17:362:17:42

Gemili. Those two will be the

fastest losers. These are the final

2:17:422:17:47

hours. That is just after five

o'clock.

2:17:472:17:51

Rodgers and Bingtian Su going for

the overall title. It is a great

2:17:582:18:02

line-up.

Young Morgan Lake looking for some

2:18:022:18:07

support from the Glasgow crowd. The

barriers at 1.88 metres. Really

2:18:072:18:14

nicely. A good clearance. -- the bar

is at. She has changed lots of

2:18:142:18:23

aspects of her jumping this winter.

More of her in a while as we turn

2:18:232:18:31

our

2:18:312:18:37

our attention to Lasitskene. A

neutral athlete, and a solid

2:18:372:18:40

clearance. She is not happy with

something. It is a good start for

2:18:402:18:45

the double world champion. Highly

expected to win. Another challenger.

2:18:452:18:53

Lavern Spencer. She has equalled her

national record this year. Also 1.88

2:18:532:19:03

metres. The athletes have gone

clear.

2:19:032:19:07

We are racing through the programme

but there is plenty to come. Greg

2:19:072:19:10

Rutherford is back on our screens

shortly in the long jump, preparing

2:19:102:19:14

for next week's World Indoors.

Another medal Corp in Birmingham is

2:19:142:19:20

Andrew Pozzi. We will see in the 60

metres hurdles. Some of the fastest

2:19:202:19:24

women in the world will contest the

final of the 60 metres flat

2:19:242:19:29

including Dafne Schippers. And

Lynsey Sharp is back on home soil,

2:19:292:19:34

hoping to thrill the Scottish crowd

in the 800 metres.

2:19:342:19:43

The next event on the track is the

men's 3000 metres. It has been

2:19:442:19:48

weakened slightly with a couple of

big names withdrawing. A couple of

2:19:482:19:55

athletes are gone. This is how they

line up. Look out for Paul Chelimo,

2:19:552:20:02

the US champion. A strong British

representation as well. Reuben Bett

2:20:022:20:06

as well, one of the impressive

Kenyans in the line-up. In terms of

2:20:062:20:16

the overall IAAF World Indoor title,

that means that Kejelcha will be

2:20:162:20:22

champion. Gebrehiwot is pulled out.

Chelimo is running so well,

2:20:222:20:30

representing the US Army. He won the

US title. He is alongside Kejelcha.

2:20:302:20:37

They are strong favourites for this

race. Davis Kiplangat represented

2:20:372:20:44

Kenyatta World Championships last

year at 5000 metres well still a

2:20:442:20:47

junior. He is only 19 years old.

Andrew Heyes. Justus Soget of tenure

2:20:472:20:55

as well. -- Kenya.

2:20:552:21:03

as well. -- Kenya. Nick Goolab did

lots of the frontrunning at the UK

2:21:052:21:08

Championships trying to get the

qualifying standard. He paid the

2:21:082:21:12

price a little bit. Britain's

representative in the 3000 metres at

2:21:122:21:19

the World Indoors, Jonathan Davies,

who ran the qualifying time in

2:21:192:21:21

Boston.

2:21:212:21:29

Vincent Letting and Reuben Bett or

the two pacemakers on the outside.

2:21:302:21:37

The men's 3000 metres or under way.

Paula Radcliffe is alongside keeping

2:21:372:21:41

a close eye on this. I have watched

Chelimo recently and he is so

2:21:412:21:46

strong. He Breust Mo Farah hard in a

couple of races as well and had a

2:21:462:21:51

good run in the World Championships.

He is the great American hope. Years

2:21:512:21:55

and he's getting stronger and more

confident with every race. He won

2:21:552:21:58

the double in the US indoor

Championships and will compete only

2:21:582:22:02

over the 3000 metres. He will

compete in Birmingham next week.

2:22:022:22:07

They have asked for a quick pace,

2.32 through the first thousand

2:22:072:22:12

metres. They are aiming for 7.35

pace. We will see a willing people

2:22:122:22:21

are to go with this. Kejelcha is

slotted in behind the pacemakers and

2:22:212:22:25

the rest of the field are strung

out.

Reuben Bett is the pacemaker

2:22:252:22:30

and ban them, Vincent Letting. Then

the Kenyans and the tall figure of

2:22:302:22:36

the Ethiopian, Kejelcha.

2:22:362:22:41

the Ethiopian, Kejelcha. Then we

have Davis Kiplangat, the Kenyan. As

2:22:422:22:46

you would expect for the British

athletes, you do not want to burden

2:22:462:22:49

yourself by going at a pace which is

beyond you. You have got to run your

2:22:492:22:53

own race, to a certain extent but it

is useful to have a certain pace to

2:22:532:22:58

feed from.

The athletes from Britain

are trying to sit on the train as

2:22:582:23:03

long as they can, basically.

Morgan Lake is eyeing up the new

2:23:032:23:11

height. 1.92 metres. She has seen

Lasitskene also go clear that the

2:23:112:23:20

same height. She sits behind her in

second place at the moment. She gets

2:23:202:23:27

it. A brilliant jump. That is a

season's best for the 20-year-old.

2:23:272:23:35

Great stuff. The next eight is

metres. That is really good.

2:23:352:23:47

metres. That is really good. -- next

height is 1.95. That is a good

2:23:472:23:52

clearance. I am pleased for her. I

mentioned Lasitskene. Massively

2:23:522:24:01

dominant. 36 successive victories

and a clean sheet so far. Look at

2:24:012:24:05

that. She does not give much away.

She made that looked very average.

2:24:052:24:18

1.95 metres, let's expect that. She

has had six jumps in excess of two

2:24:182:24:24

metres this season, such is her

brilliance.

2:24:242:24:30

Meanwhile, the 3000 metres continue,

just as Reuben Bett drops out, the

2:24:312:24:35

first pacemaker was supposed to take

them through 1000 metres, and he was

2:24:352:24:41

not far away from the required time.

He did a good job. He was checking

2:24:412:24:46

over his shoulder, and he did a good

job of stepping off the track and

2:24:462:24:50

handing over to the second

pacemaker. The leading group is down

2:24:502:24:55

to six.

Five are starting to move

away. The man losing contact at the

2:24:552:25:00

back is the Dutch athlete Benjamin

De Haan. You can see in labelling

2:25:002:25:06

slightly in the white vest. The

British athletes are another ten

2:25:062:25:09

metres by running their own race,

being sensible. Kejelcha is just ban

2:25:092:25:16

the pacemaker, Vincent Letting. Then

it is Chelimo. The Kenyan athletes

2:25:162:25:21

in the Ethiopian, then the Kenyan

who runs for the United States in

2:25:212:25:24

Chelimo. He is in fourth place on

the track, but effectively third,

2:25:242:25:29

just ban Kiplangat.

2:25:292:25:35

just ban Kiplangat. -- just behind.

Then another Kenyan, Justus Soget.

2:25:352:25:38

He is in the orange vest. Then an

Ethiopian, Dida. Soget just begins

2:25:382:25:47

to move and makes it look easy as

well. Kejelcha looking strong bank

2:25:472:25:53

to pacemaker in second place,

Vincent Letting.

2:25:532:25:56

It is a big day for the main man,

Greg Rutherford. He has said the

2:26:052:26:10

rest of his season depends on what

he does here this afternoon. The

2:26:102:26:16

World Indoors is a possibility. The

only medal that has eluded him so

2:26:162:26:22

far in what has been a brilliant

career. He is 31. There are some

2:26:222:26:28

hungry youngsters who want to enjoy

the successes that he has over the

2:26:282:26:34

past five or six years. Longer.

Rutherford said anything over eight

2:26:342:26:42

metres and he will be delighted.

2:26:422:26:48

metres and he will be delighted. He

jumped 7.8 metres to take a British

2:26:482:26:51

title last weekend in Birmingham. He

said he was terrified of the

2:26:512:26:54

competition. It is much more

impressive today. The first jump for

2:26:542:27:02

Rutherford. Looking for something

around eight metres. He squeezes

2:27:022:27:05

everything out of that. It is around

eight metres. It is good on the

2:27:052:27:11

board. I think he will like this. He

is not celebrating too much. It is a

2:27:112:27:18

red flag. I have just saw that. It

is a shame. That was a decent

2:27:182:27:22

effort.

2:27:222:27:27

effort. Just a marginal foul, but a

good start. Five jumps remaining.

2:27:282:27:32

Back to the high jump. Mariya

Lasitskene, a clean sheet so far. A

2:27:392:27:49

two-metre plus jump on so many

occasions. 1.95 metres again made to

2:27:492:27:55

look so comfortable.

2:27:552:27:57

500 metres remaining in the 3000

metres. The pace continues to left.

2:28:012:28:08

Two Ethiopians, two Kenyans and the

American, Paul Chelimo. Chelimo, the

2:28:082:28:15

American champion, looking

comfortable.

Kejelcha strides around

2:28:152:28:19

the outside. We have missed a lot in

this race, toing and froing. The

2:28:192:28:23

pace you're going between 30 and 32

second laps.

They are getting ready

2:28:232:28:32

to make their move. As we expected,

these two going to the front.

2:28:322:28:40

Chelimo and Kejelcha. Kiplangat in

behind. It might be down to the

2:28:402:28:44

three, Chelimo, Kejelcha can

Kiplangat. They hear the bell.

2:28:442:28:52

Kejelcha so familiar in this

position is well in major

2:28:522:28:56

championships. Chelimo look to his

outside. He sees Kejelcha but he

2:28:562:29:02

responds, Chelimo. Kejelcha, the

head bobbing. The young Kenyan is

2:29:022:29:07

not finished yet. Soget. Kiplangat

hits the inside and stumbles.

2:29:072:29:16

Chelimo has to go again. He should

not have looked around. He has given

2:29:162:29:21

the race away. Soget might have

stolen it on the line. Chelimo

2:29:212:29:25

thought he had on it, he was looking

to either side and the east of just

2:29:252:29:30

a fraction. He has been picked on

the line by Soget, who ran through

2:29:302:29:37

the tape and took the victory.

I

think he was beaten. We said that

2:29:372:29:41

Chelimo was growing in confidence.

Maybe that was overconfidence. He

2:29:412:29:47

saw the danger too late. He saw the

danger coming from Soget on the

2:29:472:29:51

outside and he was not able to

respond. It is a stadium record. On

2:29:512:30:01

hundredth in it. It was

mis-judgement. Chelimo should've won

2:30:012:30:03

that race. He wrapped it up too

soon.

2:30:032:30:11

soon. He give it away.

2:30:142:30:18

That's how it ended but let's see

how it got to that point. Chelimo

2:30:182:30:22

was in total control of that race,

the 18-year-old, should be the least

2:30:222:30:28

experienced here. Chelimo has all

that experience and Soget, 18 years

2:30:282:30:32

old. You can see him here. I thought

he was gone. Fire Ringo on the back

2:30:322:30:37

straight.

Yes, 18 years old but he

has an amazing future ahead of him

2:30:372:30:43

if he maintains what he is doing

now. He waited, didn't go too wide,

2:30:432:30:50

then gave it everything he had in

the straight. You can see Chelimo

2:30:502:30:54

starting to stumble. Just that look

aside, realised he had nothing left,

2:30:542:31:02

not enough time to be able to react

and do anything about the surge of

2:31:022:31:07

Soget. Don't think he even realised

he had a chance until this point.

2:31:072:31:11

Easing fractionally and then he

tries to go Gambhir T can't go

2:31:112:31:14

again, can't build up to the speed

Soget has coming down the outside. A

2:31:142:31:18

great finish. Chelimo, you can see

him looking round all the time.

2:31:182:31:26

Think he is aware of what everyone

is but Soget has an entirely

2:31:262:31:30

different look on his face.

Further

down the field, a personal best by

2:31:302:31:35

Andrew Heyes and Lewis Moses.

Not

often an 18-year-old gives a lesson

2:31:352:31:45

to Paul Chelimo but Soget has done

so there. Let's confirm that and the

2:31:452:31:53

times as Paula said, very good times

all the way down the list. Justus

2:31:532:31:57

Soget beating Paul Chelimo, the US

champion, who will remember this for

2:31:572:32:02

a while. Kejelcha would take the

overall tour title. A personal best

2:32:022:32:09

for Andrew Heyes and Lewis Moses.

Great from them.

2:32:092:32:16

One more chance for Morgan Lake to

add one centimetre to her lifetime

2:32:162:32:20

best. She already has a season's

best, the 20-year-old athlete. She

2:32:202:32:30

loves the pressure. She is an

Olympic finalist, double world

2:32:302:32:34

junior champion, but 1.95 too much

for her to day. Three fouls she has

2:32:342:32:41

done, but a season's best. A shake

of the head, clearly wanted that.

2:32:412:32:48

She believes she can and that is

important. Her coach watching on,

2:32:482:32:56

and says she is in great shape, and

running at it so well. Looking

2:32:562:33:00

forward to seeing how she

progresses.

2:33:002:33:07

Colin Jackson has won his first gold

medal! He is the champion of the

2:33:072:33:11

world!

Athletic supporters are

looking on not just with admiration

2:33:112:33:16

but in awe.

Listen to this cheer!

Jess Ennis.

2:33:162:33:27

Jess Ennis.

This guy is on fire!

This stadium has been set alight!

I

2:33:282:33:40

think you might just about get

there. He is the world champion!

2:33:402:33:45

STUDIO: Yes, the world indoor

Championships begin on Thursday. All

2:33:452:33:49

four days live on the BBC.

2:33:492:33:54

The Winter Olympics have come to a

close, of course, the final today at

2:33:572:34:00

the games tonight at 7pm. At

midnight, highlights from the

2:34:002:34:07

women's Six Nations on BBC Two. On

Tuesday we bring you live coverage

2:34:072:34:12

of Swansea against Sheffield

Wednesday in their FA Cup replay.

2:34:122:34:16

Shortly on the track, not next up,

but very shortly the fastest women

2:34:162:34:21

here will be lining up for the 60

metres final. We saw some impressive

2:34:212:34:26

running from Dina Asher-Smith in her

heat a little

2:34:262:34:28

running from Dina Asher-Smith in her

heat a little earlier on. She made

2:34:282:34:29

that look very comfortable, didn't

she?

The hard work is paying off.

2:34:292:34:34

Effortless, an effortless piece of

running from a young lady who has

2:34:342:34:38

great championship experience but

putting it to good effect today.

2:34:382:34:41

Just look at the daylight between

her and the others. Amazing piece of

2:34:412:34:47

running cost of her cadence

beautiful, very composed, very

2:34:472:34:51

relaxed and happy.

And of course on

the other heat we saw Dafne

2:34:512:34:56

Schippers with a slightly more

challenging race, in terms of her

2:34:562:35:01

own personal form. Stuttering may

be.

Stuttering at the start, she

2:35:012:35:07

can't afford to do that over 60

metres because she is surrounded by

2:35:072:35:11

very quick goals and it will cost.

That is coming up shortly. The men's

2:35:112:35:16

long jump competition is underway.

Greg Rutherford of Great Britain is

2:35:162:35:19

looking to see just where he is at.

2:35:192:35:23

COMMENTATOR: We might be about to

find out, because he has taken to

2:35:252:35:30

the runway. For

2:35:302:35:34

find out, because he has taken to

the runway. For the second time of

2:35:342:35:36

asking. His first jump was a foul,

but it was a long foul. He said

2:35:362:35:43

before the competition began that he

wants to go in excess of eight

2:35:432:35:46

metres, if he does that he will

consider the world indoors. Based on

2:35:462:35:50

what we saw a few minutes ago, looks

capable. He suffered that ankle

2:35:502:35:56

injury and couldn't walk in

November, it's amazing. He has

2:35:562:36:00

defied the doctors in just being

here. There is the offending ankle.

2:36:002:36:08

So, Rutherford, second round. The

leader at the moment four

2:36:082:36:16

. It is brilliantly long,

brilliantly good, it is a white flag

2:36:202:36:23

this time. Rutherford, that looks

beyond eight metres. Thumbs up. Good

2:36:232:36:34

on the board, good extension. If it

is not over, it is bang on. He can't

2:36:342:36:39

be far off. He made the necessary

adjustment. He is a great

2:36:392:36:44

competitor. He has proved that time

and time again. 7.89, goes into

2:36:442:36:50

second place. A season's best and a

good start for Greg Rutherford.

2:36:502:36:56

STUDIO: So a season's best for Greg

Rutherford in the men's long jump.

2:37:032:37:08

Next is the women's 1500 metres, a

full field once again, 14 athletes

2:37:082:37:13

due to be lined up for the 1500

metres here in Glasgow.

2:37:132:37:26

Chepkoech the ability possibility of

winning the trip Matt Green set

2:37:302:37:34

herself up for the world indoor

Championships next week. There is

2:37:342:37:39

Chepkoech, best known for the U-turn

she performed at the world

2:37:392:37:44

steeplechase final last year in

London. Missed it completely.

2:37:442:37:53

Cichocka from Poland, European 1500

metre champion a couple of seasons

2:37:542:37:57

ago. There is Embaye from Ethiopia,

world silver in 2015. Looking

2:37:572:38:10

relaxed, looking good to go. 4:5.64

this season. For Great Britain,

2:38:102:38:18

Stephanie Twell, off to the

Commonwealth Games down under.

2:38:182:38:20

Missed last week because she was

poorly but she has completed her

2:38:202:38:27

teaching degree. She is smiling and

back well. Snowden, and there is

2:38:272:38:36

Sarah McDonald. Also Commonwealth

Games bound. Fifth in Boston. In

2:38:362:38:41

good form. And Krauss lined up on

the inside the Germany. Maybe one to

2:38:412:38:50

watch in this women's 1500 metres.

So we have had some truly

2:38:502:38:55

competitive world-class athletics,

as you would expect here in Glasgow.

2:38:552:38:59

That is what we are expecting now in

this women's 1500 metres. A big

2:38:592:39:03

field. Mezulianikova will set the

pace. How are we reading this one?

2:39:032:39:12

Hopefully the pace will be set well.

We see straightaway Chepkoech wants

2:39:122:39:18

to go with her pace and sit behind.

Chepkoech miss the water jump in the

2:39:182:39:26

World Championships in London and

then fell later in the race and

2:39:262:39:30

obstructed Krause pretty badly.

Krause further back in the blue vest

2:39:302:39:33

on the inside. Ran very well in the

week that maybe has a bit of a...

2:39:332:39:40

Not a grudge to settle but she would

like to run well here and put the

2:39:402:39:43

disappointment of that race in

London behind her and get back

2:39:432:39:46

racing well.

So it is Chepkoech that

has gone with the pace. Five points

2:39:462:39:53

behind the leader on the tour. The

winner of these IAAF tour events are

2:39:532:39:58

guaranteed a place in the indoor

Championships, which means it could

2:39:582:40:01

be a pretty fierce line-up for the

likes of Laura knew, who will run

2:40:012:40:07

over 3000 metres on the first night

of action in Birmingham next week.

2:40:072:40:11

The field is coming back, they face

has been set. The Czech Republic

2:40:112:40:16

athlete looking comfortable and

didn't control.

Doing a good job so

2:40:162:40:19

far. Chepkoech doing well so far. A

big gap back to Chebet, who has

2:40:192:40:28

decided to drop back and leave the

chasing pack. Stephanie Twell

2:40:282:40:32

sitting behind her. Only just got

back to running in the week after

2:40:322:40:36

that illness last week.

So, the lead

phrase proper -- race proper sits on

2:40:362:40:44

behind the pacemaker, Chepkoech. As

Paula said, put herself in a good

2:40:442:40:50

position. Chebet, Krause and

McDonald holding the inside line.

2:40:502:40:57

Four laps to go on this women's 1500

metres. Down the back straight at

2:40:572:41:03

the Emirates arena. We know what is

up for grabs in this women's 1500

2:41:032:41:07

metres on the pace is starting to

increase but two separate races.

2:41:072:41:11

Absolutely. Chepkoech and Embaye at

the front and further back, Sarah

2:41:112:41:18

McDonald, who has now got herself in

a good position on the shoulder of

2:41:182:41:23

Chebet. Stacey Smith tracking her.

That is Katie Snowden as well, who

2:41:232:41:29

ran very well for second place and

looking to improve her personal best

2:41:292:41:36

this year, if she can.

So a

breakaway from the race leader.

2:41:362:41:41

Chepkoech has put her foot down.

First that the Kenyan Commonwealth

2:41:412:41:46

Games trials over the 1500 metres.

That 31 second lap by Chepkoech has

2:41:462:41:55

done the damage, very impressive

running from a woman who first and

2:41:552:41:59

foremost is a steeplechase and

stepping down to the 1500 metres

2:41:592:42:01

here.

2:42:012:42:07

here.

A nice little battle here for

the minor places. Chebet still

2:42:072:42:13

leading the way. Smith is in the mix

as well but it is a huge lead, 32.31

2:42:132:42:20

seconds for that lap.

Backing off a

little bit now. This is a very

2:42:202:42:26

impressive run. Doesn't even look

like she is working hard from her

2:42:262:42:30

face. But you can see how much

damage it is doing and to the

2:42:302:42:33

runners behind. Sarah McDonald

trying to go and Stacey Smith

2:42:332:42:42

running well.

The lead is in no

doubt. Chepkoech, the 26-year-old

2:42:422:42:50

Kenyan is going to get a big win

here today in Glasgow. Keeping an

2:42:502:42:54

eye on the clock as well. Just over

four minutes, 4.02 point 21.

2:42:542:43:05

Chepkoech in the women's 1500

metres. Embaye comes on in second. A

2:43:052:43:16

battle for the minor places in that

women's 1500 metres. The

2:43:162:43:23

Chepkoech was kind of on her own in

that.

Her own pacemaker in the

2:43:272:43:32

closing stages. She worked hard for

that. Through in a hard surge in the

2:43:322:43:36

1,000-metre mark and held on and

kept running very strongly through

2:43:362:43:40

to the finish. She won the Kenya

Commonwealth Games trials. Seems to

2:43:402:43:52

have found her distance where she

doesn't need to find a way to the

2:43:522:43:57

water jump.

Second fastest time in

the world this year, and it looked

2:43:572:44:06

very good indeed the Chepkoech. --

the Chepkoech. She arrived as the

2:44:062:44:14

world number three and she's gone

quicker here by two tenths of a

2:44:142:44:21

second to move herself up the world

rankings. A good win in the women's

2:44:212:44:27

1500 metres and it really was a

battle. Embaye was on her own for

2:44:272:44:30

second place, but you can see Chebet

and Cichocka fighting for third

2:44:302:44:40

place and it was Cichocka who

finished in third.

2:44:402:44:49

Chepkoech, a Kenyan victory today in

the women's 1500.

2:44:502:45:00

This is a look back at what happened

in the first round of the long jump

2:45:022:45:06

competition. It has been all about

Greg Rutherford so far, but Dan

2:45:062:45:11

Bramble, his team-mate, started the

competition nicely indeed. He hit

2:45:112:45:16

the board well. That was 7.84

metres. Five centimetres by end of

2:45:162:45:22

the jump from Rutherford. This is

the event leader. He did this in the

2:45:222:45:29

second round. The Jamaican. He uses

that speed very well indeed. You can

2:45:292:45:34

see the speed on the approach. He

reaches out to 7.99 metres, ahead of

2:45:342:45:40

Rutherford.

2:45:402:45:42

Mariya Lasitskene, the last chance

to go over two metres. Too much for

2:45:502:45:53

her today. You almost come to expect

it but it was not meant to be, but

2:45:532:45:59

it was a victory for the dominant

Russian athlete. Three fouls at two

2:45:592:46:06

metres.

2:46:062:46:11

metres. There is confirmation of the

victory.

2:46:112:46:18

The season is best for Morgan Lake.

Greg Rutherford. Round three in the

2:46:262:46:37

long jump. Chasing 7.99 metres. That

has got to be the wrong side of the

2:46:372:46:46

Pleistocene. Yes, look at that. A

Farrell. Another big effort. He is

2:46:462:46:56

attacking it well. I like to see

that. We know he is nervous because

2:46:562:46:59

he's coming back from injury, but

that is a good show of intention,

2:46:592:47:03

what is going on inside. He is going

after this, he wants it.

2:47:032:47:10

He is in second place. A couple of

no jumps for Greg Rutherford but the

2:47:102:47:14

distance is looking better than we

were expecting on the form that he

2:47:142:47:17

had been building us up to expect.

Yes and remarkably he looks great on

2:47:172:47:22

the runway. He is lacking overall

speed by the is there or

2:47:222:47:26

thereabouts. He just needs to be on

the board.

He has a few more jumps

2:47:262:47:31

to give himself confidence in the

decision-making process ahead of the

2:47:312:47:34

World Indoor Championships. We are

hoping that Andrew Pozzi can shine

2:47:342:47:39

at those championships, just as he

did in Belgrade last year. The

2:47:392:47:43

European indoor champion. So many

seasons have been disrupted because

2:47:432:47:47

of injury. He finally got a run

together last year and should is the

2:47:472:47:51

kind of potential we thought had

been there. Colin Jackson speaks

2:47:512:47:57

highly of him, his work ethic and

his hurdling ability.

He just needs

2:47:572:48:01

to get that break. He missed the

finals last year that the World

2:48:012:48:04

Championships. This could be his if

he gets it together.

The world

2:48:042:48:10

record holder and former Olympic

champion Aries Merritt is in this

2:48:102:48:14

one, as is Great Britain's David

King as well, and Eaton from the

2:48:142:48:22

United States.

Another very strong line-up. A

2:48:222:48:24

straight line up for the final,

including some of the best in the

2:48:242:48:30

world. Jarret Eaton, Andrew Pozzi.

That is the full line-up. On the

2:48:302:48:38

inside, Riley-La Borde, third at the

UK. He was behind Pozzi and King.

2:48:382:48:46

King alongside him. It will be King

and Pozzi represent Britain at World

2:48:462:48:52

Indoors. He was second behind Pozzi

last week and he has got the

2:48:522:48:58

standards he will be at Birmingham

next weekend.

2:48:582:49:06

next weekend. He has run his second

quickest time since his all

2:49:062:49:10

conquering year in 2012, Merritt. He

is a well liked figure. Pozzi, he

2:49:102:49:17

did win the indoor European title

last year but missed out in a place

2:49:172:49:21

in the final of the World

Championships. Ronald Levy, we

2:49:212:49:25

thought he in the World

Championships last year, but he was

2:49:252:49:28

injured in his heat and the Jamaican

went no further. Jarret Eaton, the

2:49:282:49:34

best in the world this year.

2:49:342:49:41

best in the world this year. Among

the medals at the last World

2:49:412:49:42

Indoors. Petr Svoboda of the Czech

Republic close in lane seven. He got

2:49:422:49:50

the bronze medal last year in doors.

And Johnathan Cabral of Canada.

2:49:502:49:58

A line-up that would grace any

athletics event, any final. Merritt

2:50:062:50:13

and Pozzi alongside each other, and

Levy, the quick Jamaican. Eaton

2:50:132:50:19

insects. Those are the four to look

out for.

2:50:192:50:25

-- Eaton in six. The men's 60 metres

hurdles here in Glasgow.

2:50:302:50:42

It is a clean start, I did start by

David King, by the dips his head.

2:50:462:50:53

Levy is coming well.

2:50:532:50:58

Levy is coming well. Merritt takes a

victory. The big story is the man

2:50:592:51:03

trying to an -- trying to untangle

himself from the barriers. -- Levy

2:51:032:51:11

takes a victory. There was a gasp in

the crowd is Eaton went down. A

2:51:112:51:17

smile and congratulations from Aries

Merritt. Levy takes a victory. Pozzi

2:51:172:51:21

could not get there. You can see how

well hurdles can be done by Levy,

2:51:212:51:28

and what can go wrong as well.

Lies

and Levy from the gun. He is

2:51:282:51:34

explosive. He puts on a massive gap

on the run is very early. They are

2:51:342:51:40

doing is trying to chase but trying

to keep composed. Very scrappy

2:51:402:51:42

behind them. Eaton came out the

worst. He smashed into this. He

2:51:422:51:50

staggers to the barrier and tries to

take it but there is no way he's

2:51:502:51:54

going to do it. He hates the Dagg

very hard. He will be sore for a

2:51:542:51:59

couple of days. Now there is the

battle between Andrew Pozzi and

2:51:592:52:03

Aries Merritt. Merritt just leans

further than Pozzi for second spot.

2:52:032:52:09

For the winner, it was a strong

victory. Comfortable. Setting

2:52:092:52:14

himself up very well for next

weekend's World Indoor

2:52:142:52:17

Championships.

2:52:172:52:23

Championships.

Well, victory and a

victory in your very first indoor

2:52:232:52:26

event.

How does it feel?

Amazing, it

felt good. What do you make of the

2:52:262:52:33

Indo environment, the crowds, the

neutral environment?

I did not

2:52:332:52:41

expected to be cold.

It was really

good. What about travelling to

2:52:412:52:45

Scotland?

Has that been?

From

Jamaica, it is long. Andrew, what do

2:52:452:52:52

you make of your performance?

It was

not a great performance, I got left

2:52:522:52:57

at the start and clattered a couple

of hurdles. It is not the race I was

2:52:572:53:01

looking for, but it is the one I got

so we will carry on with their

2:53:012:53:05

preparations for Birmingham.

It is

probably better to make the mistakes

2:53:052:53:09

-- make the mistakes here and have

the weaker race. What will you take

2:53:092:53:13

from here to take to Birmingham?

I

will have to have a look, I am in

2:53:132:53:16

good form but I have missed a few

races. It has not slotted into place

2:53:162:53:21

yet but the rains, all being well in

Birmingham, I will not make the same

2:53:212:53:24

mistakes.

Last year you became

European indoor champion.

How much

2:53:242:53:29

confidence does that give you? It is

good, I am a good 60-metre hurdler

2:53:292:53:35

indoors. I am in -- I am in as good

a shape as last year but I have not

2:53:352:53:41

quite fine form in racing yet.

That

is still to come.

Pretty close to

2:53:412:53:46

home as well? Absolutely. I grew up

in Stratford-upon-Avon, down the

2:53:462:53:49

road from Birmingham. I cannot wait

to compete.

2:53:492:53:57

to compete.

Thanks. The victory for

Ronald Levy, with the new Glasgow

2:53:572:54:00

record. Ahead of Aries Merritt and

Andrew Pozzi just behind in third

2:54:002:54:05

place. Jarret Eaton was the fall,

the favourite coming into the race,

2:54:052:54:10

but he fell into the barriers.

We see it time and time again, fine

2:54:102:54:17

margins in hurdling. Levy not an

indoor specialist, the first time he

2:54:172:54:23

has competed in this environment,

but he looked majestic. The Chris

2:54:232:54:27

Lowe. Last year was a breakthrough

year frame. We know he has the form,

2:54:272:54:33

the background to have a potentially

good World Championships. In the

2:54:332:54:37

middle of that, when you see Andrew

Pozzi getting caught up a little and

2:54:372:54:40

chasing, that is where the mistakes

creeping.

Yes, it is a cliche, you

2:54:402:54:47

have to try and stay in your own

lane, but it is difficult to do when

2:54:472:54:50

the person next to you just moves

away from you within the first

2:54:502:54:53

couple of metres. It was not a bad

start, but he seemed to be

2:54:532:55:00

stretching into that hurdle. From

then, he was chasing. His interview

2:55:002:55:06

suggest he was bitterly disappointed

but he is not far away from where he

2:55:062:55:09

needs to be. In literally a few

days' time he can turn this around.

2:55:092:55:13

It is such a difficult season, to

get the peak just right but the

2:55:132:55:18

athletes have to do that.

How do the

rounds help? You have got to measure

2:55:182:55:27

the rounds so well and gauge

performance, but also you do not

2:55:272:55:32

want to make any mistakes and be

out.

With the rounds, especially in

2:55:322:55:37

hurdles, you have got to still race.

You have the same amount of

2:55:372:55:41

barriers, so you have to do what you

have to do.

It is the same for these

2:55:412:55:45

women next, but on the flat. Dina

Asher-Smith will not be there. She's

2:55:452:55:50

heading out to the Gold Coast ahead

of the Commonwealth Games. She was

2:55:502:55:54

very impressive in the heats earlier

on. She will be looking to take away

2:55:542:55:58

a victory.

She will be looking for a

good time.

Her eyes are on bigger

2:55:582:56:03

prizes.

Katharine Merry, take it away. That

2:56:032:56:07

is the question, Dina Asher-Smith in

the form of life, going the

2:56:072:56:09

Commonwealth Games. If she wins a

big race here, maybe that is a

2:56:092:56:15

decision that she may wish would

have been different. This is the

2:56:152:56:19

line-up of familiar names. The final

of the women's 60 metres. The

2:56:192:56:29

qualifying has been done. In lane

number one, Lansiquot for Great

2:56:292:56:39

Britain and Northern Ireland. In

good form this year. She will start

2:56:392:56:45

next to the staff from the

Netherlands, Dafne Schippers. She

2:56:452:56:49

showed nothing in qualifying budgies

twice the world champion and we know

2:56:492:56:53

what the Dutch women has got. Lane

number three, Quanesha Burks of the

2:56:532:57:01

USA. Fourth in the long jump here

today. Then a big cheer from the

2:57:012:57:09

Glasgow crowd, Britain's fastest

ever woman, Dina Asher-Smith, the

2:57:092:57:13

fastest in qualifying, 7.08 seconds,

equalling her lifetime best. She is

2:57:132:57:19

in lane number four. In number five,

Ta Lou, the Ivory Coast athlete. A

2:57:192:57:30

double silver medal at the World

Indoor athletics Championships.

The

2:57:302:57:35

sprinters will have to wait a second

because Greg Rutherford has taken to

2:57:352:57:39

the runway for his fourth attempt.

He has been pushed into third place.

2:57:392:57:46

Changzhou Huang of China. He has

landed awkwardly. It is another

2:57:462:57:51

file. The best for Rutherford so

far, getting him in third place.

So,

2:57:512:58:00

if file for Greg Rutherford.

2:58:002:58:05

if file for Greg Rutherford. This is

Elaine Thompson. The quickest in the

2:58:092:58:12

field over 100 metres. 10.07

seconds. Again, not on fire yet in

2:58:122:58:18

qualifying. In lane number seven,

Jamile Samuel of the Netherlands,

2:58:182:58:24

the second Dutch athlete in the

field. And completing the line-up,

2:58:242:58:31

Christania Williams of Jamaica. A

100 metres finalist in Rio de

2:58:312:58:35

Janeiro. Five women in this field

have run 11 seconds are under in the

2:58:352:58:41

life for the 100 metres.

2:58:412:58:44

Dina Asher-Smith was flying in

qualification for this final. But we

2:58:502:58:56

know the form and the class of Ta

Lou, Schippers and Thompson. The

2:58:562:59:00

final of the women's 60 metres.

2:59:002:59:04

It is a clean start. Pretty even.

Asher-Smith Bidwell. Ta Lou in the

2:59:272:59:32

middle. It is Ta Lou. The double

world silver-medallist, Marie Josee

2:59:322:59:38

Ta Lou. A stadium record. That is a

lifetime best it confirmed for the

2:59:382:59:45

athlete for the Ivory Coast.

2:59:452:59:50

It was a wonderful race, a pretty

even start and it's been given to Ta

2:59:502:59:56

Lo, just by two one hundredths

beating Dina Asher-Smith.

A good run

2:59:563:00:03

by Dina Asher-Smith, is a final and

you are under added pressure.

3:00:033:00:06

Everyone focusing because she ran so

well. Backing up her previous time

3:00:063:00:12

of another 7.09 in a world-class

field. Let's not forget the talent

3:00:123:00:16

in here. We have world champions and

Olympic champions, some of the

3:00:163:00:20

fastest women who have ever graced

this planet in this race and Dina

3:00:203:00:25

Asher-Smith is right up there

competing with them. For me, to go

3:00:253:00:29

down to Strinic, to continue her

trading for the Commonwealth Games,

3:00:293:00:33

no better place to finish right now.

Alker blocks, look at her, working

3:00:333:00:38

hard, focused. She knows there is

quality all around her. I think she

3:00:383:00:43

appreciates the fact she is truly

one of the fastest women on the

3:00:433:00:47

planet. With that in mind, it's

given her more confidence to take on

3:00:473:00:51

these type of competition and

challenge right at the front. Great

3:00:513:00:54

running. You could see she was

aggressive all the way. Boy, oh boy,

3:00:543:00:59

what a future she has.

Indeed she

has. Look at the start of

3:00:593:01:06

determination from Ta Lo. Thompson

came in third in the women's 60

3:01:063:01:10

metres. Dina Asher-Smith almost

grabbed victory here in Glasgow but

3:01:103:01:14

I think she will be a bit

disappointed with that but it was a

3:01:143:01:19

good run. That was quite a race,

what a final, how do you feel?

3:01:193:01:24

Really pleased, I didn't expect to

do that time. It is OK for me. Most

3:01:243:01:32

important is World Championships. I

will be training for that.

3:01:323:01:35

important is World Championships. I

will be training for that.

Dina, you

3:01:353:01:36

are laughing right now so you must

be happy with your performance?

Very

3:01:363:01:40

happy. I knew I was in good shape

coming into this performance. I did

3:01:403:01:45

want a little faster than that time.

When we looked at the clock we were

3:01:453:01:49

like, yes, sometimes it doesn't work

like that. Still a good performance.

3:01:493:01:55

World Championship you have your eye

on. How important has it been

3:01:553:01:59

getting here, being in the UK and

getting the victory ahead of it?

3:01:593:02:04

Only one week before the World

Championship so it is important to

3:02:043:02:07

look how I'm feeling and what is my

time. Training before the World

3:02:073:02:13

Championship, and I hope to be in

the top three for the championship.

3:02:133:02:17

I didn't try to have a medal but I

think 60 metres is good for me now.

3:02:173:02:24

Dina, this is about preparing for

the Commonwealth Games?

Yes, I have

3:02:243:02:28

the Commonwealth Games at the

beginning of April. I am off to

3:02:283:02:32

Sydney next week to finish my

preparations, doing 100- 200s. Good

3:02:323:02:40

luck to you. I'm really excited.

Definitely going to be watching.

3:02:403:02:43

Thank you for talking to me and

putting on such a show!

3:02:433:02:47

They

3:02:493:02:49

They did put on a show, a super

final sprint event. Schippers on

3:02:493:02:54

right finished fifth in the end. 7.2

two. The battle was in the middle

3:02:543:03:02

lanes, Asher-Smith, world-class,

major championship finals. But Ta Lo

3:03:023:03:05

grabbed the victory here. That will

be an event on fire next week, one

3:03:053:03:11

of many events on fire next week at

the world indoor Championships. The

3:03:113:03:15

fastest woman in Glasgow, Ta Lo, a

stadium record of 7.07 seconds.

3:03:153:03:24

Here to bring you up to speed with

some of the jumps that preceded Greg

3:03:263:03:32

Rutherford's fourth attempt, Huang

of China. A bronze-medallist a few

3:03:323:03:41

years ago in the indoors. It was a

big effort in that fourth round, his

3:03:413:03:46

best so far. He had 7.83 in the

first round before this fourth

3:03:463:03:52

attempt. Just two jumps remaining,

remember. Huang, that sleep was

3:03:523:04:00

measured at 7.99, so exactly the

same distance as Damar Forbes of

3:04:003:04:05

Jamaica. So that would push

Rutherford down into third place.

3:04:053:04:10

Now Dan Bramble. Having a good

afternoon. 7.84 opener. Got closer

3:04:103:04:17

to eight metres, because that was

7.8 eight. Just one centimetre

3:04:173:04:24

behind Rutherford. What is it? 11

certain to beaters separating four

3:04:243:04:31

athletes, two of them British.

Forbes,, Rutherford and Dan Bramble

3:04:313:04:37

in that order. Two jumps remaining

for the Rutherford has chosen to

3:04:373:04:43

pass the fifth round. See what he

has for the final jump... Bramble

3:04:433:04:48

also looking good, season's does.

3:04:483:04:51

STUDIO:

3:04:543:04:56

STUDIO: The women's 60 metres final,

what was interesting was the body

3:04:563:05:00

language, Dina Asher-Smith, when she

crossed the line until the time you

3:05:003:05:03

could see she looked disappointed in

the time and that she perhaps had

3:05:033:05:08

been pipped on the line. She is

always happy to chat afterwards but

3:05:083:05:12

I think on reflection she thought

there was a bit more there in her

3:05:123:05:16

performance.

I think that is fair to

say but she has to remember that Ta

3:05:163:05:23

Lou has specifically prepared for

the indoor season to get to this

3:05:233:05:26

stage. Dina is raced sparingly in

preparation for her Commonwealth

3:05:263:05:34

Games. Two athletes at different

stages but I think that was a really

3:05:343:05:37

good run. Great runs back to back

from Dina.

She says she will head

3:05:373:05:43

out to Australia next week in

preparation for the Commonwealth

3:05:433:05:46

Games. She really is targeting that

as a championship where she can make

3:05:463:05:50

her mark on the global stage. What

will she do in the interim? Will she

3:05:503:05:57

keep training? There will be a

circuit in Austria for her to race

3:05:573:06:02

on?

Yes, she will be training hard,

getting sharper and sharper. She

3:06:023:06:06

will also be doing some competitions

to test herself over the longer

3:06:063:06:10

distance. There will be a lot to do,

acclimatisation a big part of that

3:06:103:06:15

preparation as well, preparation

camp. She will be getting herself in

3:06:153:06:21

the zone. Her sprinting, that is one

event she is almost world-class with

3:06:213:06:27

the Caribbean athletes also present

at the Commonwealth Games. She has

3:06:273:06:30

her work cut out.

But it would be,

if she can get herself on top out

3:06:303:06:36

there, so important for her. We

spoke earlier by the men's 4x100 and

3:06:363:06:40

now they have they believe they can

cut it with the best in the world.

3:06:403:06:44

For incremental steps, pushing her,

yourself onto the roster and mixing

3:06:443:06:49

with the best in the world.

She has

been a phenomenal junior athlete.

3:06:493:06:52

She is used to winning medals. Yes,

she has that relay medal but it is

3:06:523:06:57

so important, the medals, fast times

are great but at the end of your

3:06:573:07:02

career you want to look back and see

what you have in terms of

3:07:023:07:04

silverware. She will be looking to

get that.

This is her first full

3:07:043:07:09

season as a full-time athlete. She

graduated last year and now she is

3:07:093:07:13

focusing 100% on her athletics. That

transition period is always tough.

3:07:133:07:17

It sounds like the promised land,

but it is learning how to balance

3:07:173:07:21

your time. What do you do in your

downtime? All that stuff is new.

It

3:07:213:07:30

all comes into play. Not showing too

much but getting enough out of the

3:07:303:07:35

training that you need. Dina will

still be reading a book somewhere,

3:07:353:07:39

knowing her! It's about a

professional attitude to her

3:07:393:07:43

training.

One man who has been doing

that for a very long time is Kim

3:07:433:07:48

Collins, 41 years old. One of the

first athletes being introduced to

3:07:483:07:52

the crowd now for the men's 60-metre

final. Andrew, you might razzmatazz,

3:07:523:07:57

you can take

3:07:573:07:59

final. Andrew, you might razzmatazz,

you can take this one. COMMENTATOR:

3:07:593:08:02

A bit of razzmatazz. Kim Collins has

had his introduction. Adam Gemili.

3:08:023:08:08

Go on Adam! Straight through to the

final. The fastest was. This is

3:08:083:08:15

Bryce Robinson, fourth at the US

championship with 6.51. The four

3:08:153:08:23

Britons in this final, Ujah with a

point to prove. Not selected for the

3:08:233:08:31

Gold Coast. He will be out for the

scalp of Ujah and other Britons.

3:08:313:08:37

Mike Rodgers. Vying for the tour

title, the next two athletes. Mike

3:08:373:08:45

Rodgers looking for that title which

will bring him selection for the

3:08:453:08:49

world indoors. Su will be there

anyway. Every inch the build and

3:08:493:08:54

style of an indoor specialist.

Unbeaten this year. Ujah, I said he

3:08:543:09:01

sat on his blocks a bit in the heat,

needs to get out quickly in the

3:09:013:09:04

final. The UK champion has 6.53 this

season. Reece Prescod will be the

3:09:043:09:13

final man introduced to the Glasgow

arena. The UK title over 100 metres

3:09:133:09:18

last year. Made the World

Championship final. A tall figure

3:09:183:09:23

enters the arena. And we will

prepare ourselves for the final of

3:09:233:09:29

the men's 60 metres and in the

meantime head back to the field. The

3:09:293:09:34

sprinters are all in but

3:09:343:09:40

sprinters are all in but it is Shi

on the runway. He has improved

3:09:413:09:47

through the competition. Shi goes

big. What is this? No one so far

3:09:473:09:56

beyond eight metres. Shi...

Struggled looking across to gauge

3:09:563:10:03

how long these jumps up, I have over

egged them slightly so far but I

3:10:033:10:07

think that looks in excess of eight

metres. He has seen his team-mate

3:10:073:10:16

Huang jumped 7.8 nine. Two athletes

on that same distance. Shi, 19 years

3:10:163:10:20

of age has gone into first place. A

season's does. Look at that, where

3:10:203:10:26

did that come from? 8.13 in the last

round. Is it good enough for the win

3:10:263:10:31

question let's see.

Maybe a Chinese

victory in the long jump and it may

3:10:313:10:34

be in the men's 60 metres as well

because Su, who goes in lame sixes

3:10:343:10:39

unbeaten this season. But Mike

Rodgers will pressurise him from

3:10:393:10:44

lane five. That is how they line up.

The final of the men's 60 metres.

3:10:443:10:50

Away they go, clean, good start by

Robinson. Su is surely going to take

3:10:503:10:56

this, he does. Another victory for

Su ahead of Rogers, who cannot take

3:10:563:11:02

the overall title and will not go to

the world indoors. Su is imperious

3:11:023:11:09

and unbeatable over the 60-metre

distance this season. He may well be

3:11:093:11:12

a threat in Birmingham to Christian

Coleman, because he is a wonderful

3:11:123:11:18

indoor specialist. He is so

powerful, so explosive and so quick

3:11:183:11:21

out of the blocks and Rogers simply

couldn't get there.

He really,

3:11:213:11:27

really pay systems. That's what's

remarkable about him. He leaves the

3:11:273:11:30

best until the very end when it

really matters, these big finals.

3:11:303:11:33

Each time I have seen him run during

the indoor season, he has just

3:11:333:11:38

qualified with a quick time but only

reasonably fast. Come the final,

3:11:383:11:43

like today, it explodes out of the

blocks. Works hard for those first

3:11:433:11:46

ten metres, gets himself to that

really fast pace he has and he just

3:11:463:11:53

-- just means nobody can get close

to him. Switching off as he gets to

3:11:533:11:57

the back end that race. Everyone

else waiting to see what happens.

3:11:573:12:00

Let's look again. Already, away,

taken the lead. No one is really

3:12:003:12:06

pressuring him. Everyone going tight

behind him. When you are as

3:12:063:12:09

comfortable and competent as he is

with his 60 metres running, it's

3:12:093:12:13

difficult for anyone to get close to

him in the world.

From that point

3:12:133:12:17

on, 60 metres to 100, others would

come back. A good 100-metre runner

3:12:173:12:28

but not one of the world's best but

over 60 metres he is a match for

3:12:283:12:31

anyone. Christian Coleman running

extraordinary times but he runs

3:12:313:12:34

consistently, Su.

This is the

biggest advantage he has had. He has

3:12:343:12:36

raced so much on the circuit. As his

opponent so well. I am excited about

3:12:363:12:39

that 60-metre race next weekend.

3:12:393:12:44

opponent so well. I am excited about

that 60-metre race next weekend.

A

3:12:443:12:45

personal best, how you feeling?

I am

OK. It is nice, out and equal your

3:12:453:12:52

PB but technically, not the best.

That's what these meetings are for,

3:12:523:12:55

learning and making mistakes when

you get to the championships, there

3:12:553:12:58

are no mistakes. I am happy. I will

take it through for my preparation

3:12:583:13:02

for the Commonwealth Games.

Looking

forward to it. What about yourself,

3:13:023:13:05

how you feeling?

Not too bad. Still

recovering from last weekend but

3:13:053:13:11

nevertheless, 57, I will take it,

recover and get ready for the world

3:13:113:13:14

indoors.

That is a big thing, what

are you taking away from today?

I

3:13:143:13:21

need to react, man. From 30 yards on

60 on doing all right but the first

3:13:213:13:25

bit, I'm not moving.

What about

yourself, not world indoor view but

3:13:253:13:29

commonwealths you are aiming for, a

little bit of time?

Yes, my second

3:13:293:13:34

indoor race, I'm not my busier but I

have to use this race to get ready

3:13:343:13:40

for the Commonwealth Games. Looking

forward to it. Build the start,

3:13:403:13:44

that's where I'm losing a lot of

time. Still got a lot of work to do.

3:13:443:13:49

I will go back to the drawing board

and do that.

Brilliant, well done

3:13:493:13:52

guys, great watch and great to see

British sprinting going the way it

3:13:523:13:56

is.

Cheers!

But they had to give

second best to Edoburun.

3:13:563:14:04

is.

Cheers!

But they had to give

second best to Edoburun. He had

3:14:043:14:07

fooled place behind Su, Rogers and

Bryce Robinson. Su takes the overall

3:14:073:14:14

indoor title.

3:14:143:14:16

This is how it happened. You can see

the power of Su once again. The

3:14:193:14:24

build with him and Rogers, short men

but powerful sprinters. CJ talked

3:14:243:14:29

about his start and leaving a bit

too much to do. Prescod, his

3:14:293:14:34

strength lies in the longer

distances outdoors. Consistent

3:14:343:14:37

running by the British athletes but

a little behind the world's

3:14:373:14:41

favourites of Su and Rogers.

Last round, last jump for Dan

3:14:413:14:46

Bramble. He is in fifth place, as

you can see. He has jumped very well

3:14:463:14:55

so far. Bramble, last chance to take

more scalps. Not to be.

3:14:553:14:59

He just ran out of steam. But here's

got to be pleased with his

3:15:033:15:09

performance this afternoon. 7.84

metres opener. Over striding, the

3:15:093:15:16

cardinal sin of decelerating. That

is not what he would have wanted. A

3:15:163:15:22

decent jump. 7.88 metres is best in

the fourth round, one centimetre

3:15:223:15:28

behind Greg Rutherford. Bramble,

Shaftesbury Harrier, has jumped over

3:15:283:15:35

eight metres in the past, both

indoors and outdoors. A good series.

3:15:353:15:43

Let's go with that. His indoor

season is progressing. Rutherford,

3:15:433:15:48

looking very purposeful indeed. He

skipped round five. His last chance

3:15:483:15:56

to improve his position. He is in

fourth place. It is flat, and it is

3:15:563:16:02

not long enough. He did not get the

height. He knows it. Appreciating

3:16:023:16:06

the support. A massive jump from

Yuhao Shi of China. 8.13 metres.

3:16:063:16:15

Massive in the context of today at

least. Rutherford looks like he will

3:16:153:16:19

have to settle for a best of 7.89

metres. I do not think he will

3:16:193:16:24

improve on that distance. He is

behind Changzhou Huang of China in

3:16:243:16:31

third place, and Yuhao Shi of China,

and dom artforms of Jamaica. So,

3:16:313:16:39

Rutherford not in the position we

have grown accustomed to seeing him

3:16:393:16:41

in, dominating in the past. But his

work is done. 7.81 metres in the

3:16:413:16:49

last round, fourth place for

Rutherford. As we turn our attention

3:16:493:16:54

to demand for this. He looks as

though he has popped his car. That

3:16:543:16:59

is nasty. -- his calf. That is a

shame, he was jumping pretty well.

3:16:593:17:10

He had his lead taken away from him

a few moments ago. Insult to injury,

3:17:103:17:14

literally. The more Forbes'

afternoon ends in disappointment.

3:17:143:17:21

That is our sole wrapped up. Yuhao

Shi, right in the last phase. Look

3:17:213:17:27

at this, rate as he was driving out.

He would not have seen that coming,

3:17:273:17:32

the sniper got him from the back of

the stand. There is a winner, 19

3:17:323:17:38

years of age, Yuhao Shi, 8.13

metres. He takes a good victory in

3:17:383:17:44

Glasgow.

So, the final track event of the

3:17:443:17:50

afternoon is arranged as such

because of strong Scottish

3:17:503:17:54

involvement in the women's 800

metres, not just with Lynsey Sharp

3:17:543:17:57

but Mhairi Hendry ran well in the UK

Championships. There is little

3:17:573:18:01

line-up.

3:18:013:18:06

line-up. -- there is the film

line-up.

3:18:063:18:13

Ayala from Spain is the pacemaker.

Looking to take them through 400

3:18:173:18:21

metres in 59 seconds. It will be

interesting to see who will go with

3:18:213:18:28

that. A few in this line-up like to

place their own races. Halova, from

3:18:283:18:35

Latvia.

3:18:353:18:40

Latvia. Mhairi Hendry, one-time

athlete, from just outside Glasgow.

3:18:423:18:46

-- a hometown athlete. Adelle Tracey

shares

3:18:463:18:58

shares lane four with Danaid Prinsen

of the Netherlands. Just 22 years

3:19:023:19:06

old, new personal best this season.

3:19:063:19:08

A very warm welcome to Lynsey Sharp

who's been watched by her training

3:19:133:19:22

partner and life partner, Andy

Butcher. He is injured, sadly.

3:19:223:19:26

Lynsey Sharp struggling with that

news, finding it very difficult.

3:19:263:19:29

Katerina Halova of the Czech

Republic, alongside

3:19:293:19:37

Wolters-Verstegen of the

Netherlands. Romero of Spain on the

3:19:373:19:43

inside. Andrew Bridge is you're

watching Lynsey Sharp. I have not

3:19:433:19:47

been able to see him. He suffered

that injury in New York at the start

3:19:473:19:51

of the month. Sharp was talking

about how difficult it was to go out

3:19:513:19:55

on training runs, leaving him behind

in his protective boot. The women's

3:19:553:20:00

800 metres under way, the final

event in the track in Glasgow. Sharp

3:20:003:20:07

likes to run from the front, but the

pacemaker from Spain, Ayala, round

3:20:073:20:12

the outside, looking for 59 seconds.

Adelle Tracey settling into third in

3:20:123:20:17

the race behind the pacemaker in

front. She went out to five UK

3:20:173:20:21

chance last week.

3:20:213:20:27

chance last week. Hendry ran really

well there last week and she will be

3:20:273:20:29

looking to build on that performance

today.

Velvere effectively the

3:20:293:20:35

leader binder pacemaker, just a

paces clear. Then Wolters-Verstegen

3:20:353:20:40

of the Netherlands and Adelle

Tracey, who is ahead of Lynsey Sharp

3:20:403:20:45

and Mhairi Hendry, the strong figure

on the outside who would love to

3:20:453:20:48

take the scalp of her fellow Scot,

Lynsey Sharp. They have all come to

3:20:483:20:54

see Sharp and expect her to feature

strongly but Hendry is in good form.

3:20:543:20:59

She has been raising personal best

after personal best. She is tracking

3:20:593:21:03

Sharp. Sharp is a confidence runner

and that confidence has been not so

3:21:033:21:09

far this winter, particularly with

the injury to Andrew. She will be

3:21:093:21:14

well supported by the crowd and she

will want to set herself up well for

3:21:143:21:17

the Commonwealth Games.

Velvere

begins to fade, the Latvian athlete.

3:21:173:21:25

Adelle Tracey hits the front but it

is a long way home. Hendry a couple

3:21:253:21:30

of paces back. Wolters-Verstegen

looking strong. It is Tracey ahead

3:21:303:21:34

of Sharp. Lynsey Sharp is shadowing.

Velvere has something left, she

3:21:343:21:42

hates the front. Lynsey Sharp has to

respond. Hendry trying to find

3:21:423:21:46

something further back. Velvere

stretching clear. I am not sure

3:21:463:21:53

Lynsey Sharp can get there. Velvere

look strong. Sharp grits teeth in

3:21:533:22:00

digs in but it will be the victor of

Velvere, Lynsey Sharp in second

3:22:003:22:05

place, and Danaid Prinsen in third.

Lynsey Sharp did not give the crowd

3:22:053:22:09

the Scottish victory to end the day,

but a great run from Liga Velvere,

3:22:093:22:15

and we thought it looked like she

was beginning to fade when Adelle

3:22:153:22:18

Tracey when Pastor, but she had more

to give in the race. What a run from

3:22:183:22:23

Velvere and Lynsey Sharp second in

Glasgow.

Velvere judge did very

3:22:233:22:29

well. Adelle Tracey ran slightly

wide around the next Lars Bender and

3:22:293:22:33

left the door open. Velvere seize

the opportunity and came through. We

3:22:333:22:39

can see them approaching the bell.

Adelle Tracey has made her move.

3:22:393:22:43

Around the bend she is on the top of

line on and she leaves the space on

3:22:433:22:48

the inside and Velvere grabs the

opportunity. Lynsey Sharp has to go

3:22:483:22:53

wide and higher. She's starting to

lean back a little and her

3:22:533:22:56

shoulders. She's starting to tighten

up. Prinsen is coming from behind,

3:22:563:23:06

moving the fastest, making up ground

on Lynsey Sharp. She runs out of

3:23:063:23:09

track. Sharp was strong but she

needs to believe in herself more.

3:23:093:23:15

Velvere judge did really well and

judged the dash and took the

3:23:153:23:19

opportunity when it was presented to

an undeserved victory.

It was a good

3:23:193:23:24

run from Velvere, she has run a new

national record by 0.2 seconds.

3:23:243:23:29

Lynsey Sharp in second place and she

is talking to JJ.

3:23:293:23:36

Second place. Are you feeling? I

would love to have got the victor in

3:23:363:23:41

such -- in front of such a great

crowd, but I did not get it right.

3:23:413:23:45

You say such a great crowd, your

training in San Diego, but this is

3:23:453:23:49

home for you. What is it like to be

able to compete your?

I do not get

3:23:493:23:53

the chance to compete in Scotland

very often so I am disappointed I

3:23:533:23:57

could not get the victory, but it

meant so much to come back and

3:23:573:24:01

compete. We have travelled a long

way from San Diego today.

It was

3:24:013:24:05

worth it. This is your preparation

for the Commonwealth Games. You're

3:24:053:24:09

keen to step up from that silver

medal?

For sure. It is each race I

3:24:093:24:14

can get in before the commonwealths,

it is not about indoors, just about

3:24:143:24:18

race is under way the Gold Coast.

Thankfully I can get an outdoor

3:24:183:24:23

track now.

That is the last indoors

on. Thank you. Thank you.

3:24:233:24:30

Disappointment from Lynsey Sharp but

what to run it was from Liga

3:24:303:24:33

Velvere. To take a victory with a

national record, she used to be a

3:24:333:24:40

400-metre hurdler. We talk about the

strength those hurdlers have in the

3:24:403:24:45

closing stages. She sure that they

are very good victory, the biggest

3:24:453:24:49

of her career. Confirmation of it

with the Latvian national record.

3:24:493:24:53

And this is the final result of the

long jump competition. It was a good

3:25:073:25:11

last line for Yuhao Shi China, as

season's best. Greg Rutherford in

3:25:113:25:17

fourth place, but I think he jumped

a little better than that distance

3:25:173:25:20

suggests. He had some decent fouls

and looks in decent shape to me. So

3:25:203:25:27

a victory for Yuhao Shi.

3:25:273:25:28

As we've seen from the results, it

was fourth, 7.89 metres your best

3:25:323:25:37

for the day.

Are you feeling? Quite

tired. After the nationals last week

3:25:373:25:42

and found I was taking a long time

to recover. I came here with the

3:25:423:25:46

game plan that if I go get over

eight metres I would be close to

3:25:463:25:51

where I to be. That has not happened

today but there were a few positives

3:25:513:25:54

for sure. I am the moment, I am a

speed base jumper, I am not quite

3:25:543:25:59

there. I am probably six-week Spain

from the surgery but I felt quicker

3:25:593:26:03

today. My run-up started moving back

which is a positive which means and

3:26:033:26:09

getting quicker again. Week by week,

it is getting better, but in five

3:26:093:26:14

days' time it is meant to be the

World Championships. Today was going

3:26:143:26:17

to be a decider for whether or not

I'd definitely go. We will have to

3:26:173:26:22

debrief. I am teetering on the edge.

I am there to try and win medals,

3:26:223:26:26

not make up the numbers. I need to

make sure I will be in with a chance

3:26:263:26:30

of that happening.

Thank you for

speaking tours.

We really hope to

3:26:303:26:34

see you at the worlds.

I appreciate

that, thank you. Greg Rutherford not

3:26:343:26:39

committing one were another as to

what today is done to make his mind

3:26:393:26:44

up about the World Championships. He

thought eight metres would be the

3:26:443:26:48

mark that would have swung it for

him.

Do you think we will see him in

3:26:483:26:52

Birmingham? I think so. I think he's

a little more confident every time

3:26:523:26:55

he competes. The only worry I have

is when he says he is struggling to

3:26:553:27:00

recover after events. When you're

struggling to recover it makes it

3:27:003:27:03

more difficult.

Would you go along

with that? I think it is fair to

3:27:033:27:07

say. He has to listen to his body.

His body has been fried gel but it

3:27:073:27:12

appears confident, he has got to go

for it. He said that he is here for

3:27:123:27:18

the medals, not to make up the

numbers.

He has done everything in

3:27:183:27:22

his career, he is not going to make

up the numbers. A mixed bag from a

3:27:223:27:27

British perspective but there was

one that stood out for you for the

3:27:273:27:32

performance of the day.

It was

definitely Tom Bosworth. He was

3:27:323:27:36

fantastic. We do now get to see

enough walking. He is leading the

3:27:363:27:40

way, world record and look at that

face, it says it all.

It is about

3:27:403:27:45

the Commonwealth Games for him,

heading out to Australia and getting

3:27:453:27:48

among the medals at the Commonwealth

Games, to try and deliver

3:27:483:27:53

disappointment he suffered last year

in London. For the other British

3:27:533:27:56

athletes today, who will be pleased

with their performance and who will

3:27:563:27:59

be feeling they are not worthy they

want to be quite right now?

I think

3:27:593:28:04

Dina Asher-Smith should be pleased

with her performance. When you're in

3:28:043:28:07

the best shape of your life it is

difficult to produce personal bests

3:28:073:28:11

all the time. She needs to race to

get under the seven second barrier.

3:28:113:28:15

I think she's capable of that but

when you're coming off one-off hits,

3:28:153:28:21

you should not be disappointed with

your performance. Her time was

3:28:213:28:24

great.

Andrew King run a lot better

than he ran today. We're going to

3:28:243:28:29

see in Birmingham at the World

Indoor Championships. We're not

3:28:293:28:34

going to see all the athletes we saw

here. Lynsey Sharp will not run in

3:28:343:28:39

Birmingham. Shady British athletes

be confident of getting medals in

3:28:393:28:43

Birmingham?

You have got to. It does

not matter what the performances are

3:28:433:28:48

going into those championships, you

have to raise your game in the day.

3:28:483:28:51

There will be a great atmosphere in

Birmingham.

They've got to be

3:28:513:28:54

hopeful.

We're expecting packed

crowds. Absolutely, we are talking

3:28:543:28:59

about Birmingham.

Denise lose's

hometown. She will be telling us

3:28:593:29:04

where to go and eat and drink in the

evenings. We will be there, Colin,

3:29:043:29:08

you will be there as well, today was

her -- for the day, this was about

3:29:083:29:14

the Commonwealth Games but we will

be at the World Indoor Championships

3:29:143:29:19

in Birmingham on Thursday. You can

see every minute on the BBC and we

3:29:193:29:22

hope that you will join us.

3:29:223:29:25

A world best time by Tom Bosworth.

He has it.

3:29:323:29:35

Gabby Logan introduces live coverage from the highest-profile indoor Grand Prix on the circuit as some of the biggest stars in athletics fine-tune their preparations for the World Indoor Championships.

Adam Gemili, Nethaneel Mitchell-Blake and CJ Ujah, who were all part of the men's gold-medal winning 4x100m relay team at the World Athletics Championships in London, compete individually in the 60m race.

Former Olympic and world long jump champion Greg Rutherford also makes his competitive return from injury.
