Another victory.

Kiltie

might just about get there. Did he

win it?

And it's over.

And we will

see the world's fastest ever man

0:01:270:01:38

indoors, Christian Coleman in the

men's 60 metres. That is one of nine

0:01:380:01:42

events that are going to be decided

tonight. Laura Muir goes in the

0:01:420:01:49

final of women's 1,500 metres. The

women's 60 hurdles final promises to

0:01:490:01:56

be a final. The America women are

looking good, led by Kendra

0:01:560:02:03

Harrison.

0:02:030:02:10

Harrison. And the heptathlon with

the French athlete in the lead.

0:02:100:02:16

This is thousand evening pans out.

0:02:160:02:24

-- this is how the evening pans out.

0:02:240:02:31

We welcome this Saturday teatime,

Katarina Johnson-Thompson. Fantastic

0:03:390:03:48

to have you here.

I think I was

still doing the long jump yesterday.

0:03:480:03:53

Very fresh information to me when

people call me the world champion.

0:03:530:03:58

Did you get any sleep? I saw you

posting at an un-Godly hour you

0:03:580:04:03

should get some sleep.

Yes, I left

my alarm on from the day before and

0:04:030:04:10

it was a 7am wake up call and the

memories started flooding in. I

0:04:100:04:17

slept from 3 to 7.

I'm sure a lot

was going on h your mind. You had

0:04:170:04:25

family here. They must have been

Thripped to see you achieve that --

0:04:250:04:30

thrilled to see you achieve that?

Yes it was amazing, they came to the

0:04:300:04:36

hotel and spoke about the whole day

and it was a thing I will cherish

0:04:360:04:41

forever.

Can we have a look at your

medal.

I have just picked it up.

0:04:410:04:46

It's got...

It is lovely.

0:04:460:04:59

It's got...

It is lovely.

Spaghetti

junction there.

We have the library

0:04:590:05:01

there.

We want to talk about your

day and what going through your

0:05:010:05:08

head. Let's look back at how you won

that gold.

Is this an opportunity

0:05:080:05:18

for Katarina Johnson-Thompson? Not

the best of starts. Williams may win

0:05:180:05:24

this. 8.07. It is the time that is

important.

0:05:240:05:36

important.

Johnson-Thompson jumped

1.97 in Rio. That is more like it.

0:05:360:05:39

She is in the lead over all. Shot

put next. Moves to the back of the

0:05:390:05:47

circle. Legs involved. That is a

good effort.

That is huge. That will

0:05:470:05:54

make such a difference to her.

Johnson-Thompson very capable of

0:05:540:05:59

putting it out of reach here. Last

jump.

That looks much better.

She

0:05:590:06:05

should know if she runs to her

potential this will be not a lap,

0:06:050:06:11

but four laps of honour. In the gold

medal position. She says this is my

0:06:110:06:20

race, this is my time, this is my

title. She has the gold medal. She

0:06:200:06:25

is the world indoor champion.

You

said your alarm went off at 7. What

0:06:250:06:32

is going through your mind on the

morning with five events ahead of

0:06:320:06:36

you and you know you have a real

opportunity to get on top?

It is

0:06:360:06:42

something I have been overwhelmed

with in the past. Five events in one

0:06:420:06:46

day is a lot. But I was chilled and

I thought, I have just got hurdles

0:06:460:06:52

and high jump and I have some time

to do the shot put and I'm in the

0:06:520:06:57

mind set of taking things in

sections. I wasn't too worried. I

0:06:570:07:02

was just focussed

Was ate conscious

thing that in the past you were

0:07:020:07:08

looking ahead too much?

Yes,

especially even in the lead up, in

0:07:080:07:13

the the build up, I used to get

overwhelmed trying to think about

0:07:130:07:17

every technical event. I wouldn't

able to sleep maybe two nights

0:07:170:07:22

before. The Thursday night I slept

like a baby and woke up fully rested

0:07:220:07:27

and ready to go.

Is it too pre

presumptuous to say you looked like

0:07:270:07:37

you were enjoying yourself in the

shot put?

No, I had a very bad warm

0:07:370:07:42

up. People would have seen I wasn't

throwing very far. Two of aaunties

0:07:420:07:56

came on dance cam and one gave it a

go and it relaxed me. I I was like,

0:07:560:08:02

they're here and enjoying

themselves. I took my advice. Jonny

0:08:020:08:07

was there, my coach, to hell me do

the shot put. It built and built up

0:08:070:08:14

and my first throw was decent.

What

has been the difference out side of

0:08:140:08:21

aunties, you can't take them to

every competition. What has been the

0:08:210:08:24

difference in the competition and

previous ones, where you said this

0:08:240:08:28

one you didn't get so nervous and

were able to be more relaxed?

0:08:280:08:34

Exactly that, in the shot put

especially when I used to not do a

0:08:340:08:39

good warm up or a good first throw,

I would fall apart and think, I'm

0:08:390:08:44

never going to throw it. I feel like

I was able to understand where I was

0:08:440:08:48

on each of the event and be like, OK

I need to do this and build it and

0:08:480:08:53

just take it in my stride and not

panic. Because I know I'm capable of

0:08:530:08:58

doing it.

The high jump, you were

short of your best, still the best

0:08:580:09:03

in the field. Were you able to say,

I have lot a few points, and I'm

0:09:030:09:08

going to have to now pull something

out of bag in the shot put?

Yes, it

0:09:080:09:13

always feels like the case in the

shot put, my shot put cancels out my

0:09:130:09:20

high jump and I'm lucky because

nothing cancels out the long jump. I

0:09:200:09:29

found the high jump competition

difficult. My adrenaline went after

0:09:290:09:32

I knew I was the last one in. I'm

just happy I was able to, yeah... I

0:09:320:09:40

think that was the jump. I was

aiming for 1.94. So I didn't want to

0:09:400:09:47

celebrate. But it didn't come off. I

was happy with the way I bounced

0:09:470:09:52

back from the high jump.

We have

spoken about the ability of

0:09:520:10:01

heptathletes to leave baggage

behind, you seemed to manage it and

0:10:010:10:06

just park whatever happened in the

event before and move forward?

Yes

0:10:060:10:10

you have to, good or bad f you have

an amazing vent, you can't, I have

0:10:100:10:16

done that in the past, had an

amazing high jump and think

0:10:160:10:20

everything is going great. So I

tried take each event as they come

0:10:200:10:25

good or bad.

You have had some

difficult times in big global events

0:10:250:10:30

and big events for you haven't come

off, whether Beijing or in London

0:10:300:10:35

and it felt like yesterday was a

real redemption, you were righting

0:10:350:10:41

wrongs and proving to yourself you

can get to the top. Did you feel

0:10:410:10:44

yesterday was a break through

moment?

Yes, I felt break through,

0:10:440:10:49

the start of something hopefully. I

know I can compete at this level and

0:10:490:10:53

I have a gold medal. To me it is a

huge confidence boost to know I have

0:10:530:10:59

a global title and I'm working

towards something special in the

0:10:590:11:02

next couple of years and trying to

build.

I know she won't say, that,

0:11:020:11:10

making that transition and moving to

France, a lot of people, athletes

0:11:100:11:14

move, they do, but they tend to go

to countries, where they speak

0:11:140:11:18

English. That whole independence...

If they speak English.

Or this

0:11:180:11:25

moving to France, big adjustment,

upheaval and having to settle

0:11:250:11:32

yourself into a new regime shouldn't

be underestimated. I think you're

0:11:320:11:38

bearing the fruits of second winter

being in a positive environment with

0:11:380:11:41

a good training group. I think that

showed.

For sure, last year I think

0:11:410:11:46

it was too soon. I remember people

saying, don't be scared but I was

0:11:460:11:53

so, I wanted London 2017 so much.

This year's the first year I have

0:11:530:11:59

had the full winter training and

learned techniques and the direction

0:11:590:12:03

I want to go in and I think it is

coming together and I was happy I

0:12:030:12:07

was able to rectify it at home.

I'm

proud of you, the critics that

0:12:070:12:13

didn't believe you had the ability

to move forward. I think you have

0:12:130:12:18

demonstrated that you're ready.

I'm

stubborn. People wanted me to go to

0:12:180:12:25

single events, but I'm stubborn and

I believe in myself and I believe

0:12:250:12:30

I'm a heptathlete and I want to show

I can do this.

You talked of

0:12:300:12:36

sacrifice in your interview

yesterday, you take yourself to a

0:12:360:12:42

different country, settle in

somewhere away from the home

0:12:420:12:45

comforts and there must have been

times where you questioned whether

0:12:450:12:48

that was the right move or not.

Yes

for sure. It is inevitable that I

0:12:480:12:54

questioned it, especially after last

year where it didn't come together

0:12:540:12:57

in London. Now I know I'm on the

right path and it will be worth it.

0:12:570:13:02

What are you excited about for the

future? You have got Commonwealth

0:13:020:13:09

Games coming up and now you I think

you probably feel got that off your

0:13:090:13:16

back, what excites you about the

future?

I just want to do more of

0:13:160:13:20

what I did yesterday. I want to be

comfortable in my surroundings and I

0:13:200:13:25

want my body, I want to be confident

with my body, no injuries, training

0:13:250:13:32

and be here winning medals. I know

in the past I have concentrated so

0:13:320:13:36

much on points or scores or heights

and I just want to get into that

0:13:360:13:42

mentality where I want to win and

come here and be competitive. Like

0:13:420:13:48

you used when you were a kid.

Your

dogs and your mum are getting a bit

0:13:480:13:53

chubby?

I spoke to my mum yesterday

and, my Nan was with the nothings

0:13:530:13:59

watching that interview, she said,

they're my dogs.

You have lost your

0:13:590:14:06

dogs! The Commonwealth Games is a

few weeks away, you must take so

0:14:060:14:10

much confidence from that

performance into the heptathlon

0:14:100:14:15

there. Do you feel you have this new

mind set and putting it over two

0:14:150:14:19

days will be the next challenge. You

have got to bed and get up the next

0:14:190:14:24

day with the same mind set.

Yes it

will be interesting, it is only a

0:14:240:14:30

month and instead of breaking down

the training after the indoor

0:14:300:14:34

season, I'm trying to build on the

pentathlon and I am going to have a

0:14:340:14:39

week off and go back into training

and build it up. And then I have got

0:14:390:14:46

16 weeks until the Europeans and

this song will be on my play list!

0:14:460:14:55

This puts you in your happy place.

Three times yesterday.

Athletes

0:14:550:15:01

talked of plan about attempting this

year and we have three major

0:15:010:15:06

Championships, you want to go for

all three?

0:15:060:15:14

I'm just focusing on trying to build

my craft and working on building it

0:15:230:15:26

altogether.

We have discussed

various events over the last few

0:15:260:15:29

years the best way forward, I have

asked Denise is it to strengthen the

0:15:290:15:34

events you are weaker on, to go for

the events you are great at and not

0:15:340:15:38

worry about that. Have you had a

rethink at all?

I always try and

0:15:380:15:46

work on my throwing, it is an

ongoing process and I don't think I

0:15:460:15:49

will ever be finished, but for me my

strengths are so strong, I need to

0:15:490:15:52

make sure that those events, my high

jump and long jump that I didn't do

0:15:520:15:59

yesterday where they need to be. I

try not to get too down with myself,

0:15:590:16:04

and I know I'm competing with my

training partner, she did an amazing

0:16:040:16:08

throw yesterday, she got 15.50, and

it just shows that certain people

0:16:080:16:14

have certain strengths, and certain

people have certain weaknesses, and

0:16:140:16:18

she can throw that in training and I

can't even do that. She's just got

0:16:180:16:23

it, and she would ask me the same

for the high jump, so it is trying

0:16:230:16:26

to get to a place where I am happy

with.

And while there isn't another

0:16:260:16:31

global event this year, in the

European Championships hopefully you

0:16:310:16:34

will come up against W Thiem, which

is a wonderful opportunity, and if

0:16:340:16:40

things go right next month, more

good training under your belt, that

0:16:400:16:42

is a great opportunity for you.

Definitely, that is what I'm working

0:16:420:16:49

towards, and it will be a great

opportunity, especially with

0:16:490:16:52

Karolina Schaeffer from Germany as

well, so I definitely am going to do

0:16:520:16:56

the Commonwealth Games and have a

long time to build on both of those

0:16:560:17:00

competitions.

It is about taking one

step at a time, and she is right,

0:17:000:17:05

you have to get to that happy place

where there is an acceptance, at

0:17:050:17:09

this point she is not going to throw

15 metres in the shot, but she will

0:17:090:17:14

improve and be solid. But what has

let her down has been her strengths,

0:17:140:17:17

so that cannot happen. Every

heptathlete is walking that fine

0:17:170:17:24

line between giving, taking and

keeping the balance.

You can hear

0:17:240:17:27

the music behind us, which means

there is a medal ceremony about a

0:17:270:17:32

happen. It was the men's competition

this morning, won by Tomas Walsh of

0:17:320:17:37

New Zealand, so Steve Backley will

talk us through this.

0:17:370:17:46

COMMENTATOR: It was a very

entertaining competition, this. So,

0:17:460:17:57

in reverse order, Tomas Stanek, one

of the most consistent performers

0:17:570:18:02

before the championships, 21 metres

and 44 centimetres, made to look

0:18:020:18:09

rather ordinary by the standards set

by Tom Walsh. But a good performance

0:18:090:18:16

for Stanek. And David Storl, another

medal for his enormous collection,

0:18:160:18:27

twice world champion, three times

European champion, same distance,

0:18:270:18:31

silver and bronze, but went to a

carrot back to the next best throw,

0:18:310:18:36

and even that was just a few

centimetres. But the main man, Tom

0:18:360:18:40

Walsh.

CHEERING

0:18:400:18:46

A superb performance, Championship

record, the fourth best ever,

0:18:460:18:49

dominated all three throwers would

have taken the gold medal. He was a

0:18:490:18:56

talented rugby player growing up,

his mum wanted him to play for the

0:18:560:18:59

all Blacks. He says now he has made

the right decision, and you can't

0:18:590:19:05

argue with that. Jebet chip record,

22.31. And we will enjoy the New

0:19:050:19:13

Zealand national anthem. All smiles

from Tom Walsh.

0:19:130:19:19

APPLAUSE

0:20:130:20:19

Brilliant stuff for Tom Walsh,

another global title. Boy is he

0:20:190:20:27

going to be a handful in the

Commonwealth Games next month in

0:20:270:20:31

Australia.

0:20:310:20:34

STUDIO: Congratulations to Tomas

Walsh, and we will be having another

0:20:370:20:45

medal ceremony in a couple of

minutes, we have another couple of

0:20:450:20:50

minutes here with Kat. Has it been a

crazy

0:20:500:20:58

crazy 24-hour is?

Not really.

She is

laid-back.

She is, she is just happy

0:20:590:21:04

in her own space, right? It is just

the way she is.

Lets give a robbery

0:21:040:21:09

at home another look at that gold,

as you don't know, it could be the

0:21:090:21:13

only one Great Britain have, we hope

that there are more to come, but

0:21:130:21:17

look, the wonderful design of all

the famous buildings of Birmingham

0:21:170:21:22

there, and of course you got one

Commonwealth Games to go down to the

0:21:220:21:26

goalposts for, and in four years'

time you will be back in Birmingham

0:21:260:21:31

hopefully for the Commonwealth Games

again.

Yes, it will be my second

0:21:310:21:35

Commonwealth Games, this was my

first.

Are you going to do some more

0:21:350:21:38

in doors?

No, that is me done now.

But generally?

Yes, it definitely,

0:21:380:21:46

it is my second pentathlon of my

senior career, so this is my

0:21:460:21:49

favourite sort of arena to do it.

Clearly she likes in doors at!

0:21:490:21:57

Glasgow next year.

Thank you for

coming to chat to us, and best of

0:22:000:22:04

luck. It seems to be going the right

way, so best of luck, keep doing

0:22:040:22:08

what you are doing. Of course, it is

as I say the 60 metres medal

0:22:080:22:14

ceremony. For that fantastic final

last night. It was a one-two for the

0:22:140:22:23

Ivory Coast, and they are top of the

medal table after that magnificent

0:22:230:22:30

final. It all came right last night

after a tough few years the Murielle

0:22:300:22:39

Ahoure, she has won medals on the

first stage, the world stage, and

0:22:390:22:45

Steve Cram will talk us through the

medal ceremony.

0:22:450:22:47

If you look in the middle tables and

performances, she had the total

0:22:510:22:55

number of medals won back by her

country. And then they win another

0:22:550:23:04

two.

0:23:040:23:09

two. And joining them, Mujinga

Kambundji. Switzerland have never

0:23:100:23:16

won a medal in this event before.

When was Switzerland's last medal at

0:23:160:23:21

these Championship is? It was 2001.

Swiss 800 metres runner.

0:23:210:23:33

Swiss 800 metres runner.

Bucher.

Well done. And if Switzerland have

0:23:340:23:40

had to wait a long time for a medal

at these championships, then

0:23:400:23:46

suddenly for Ivory Coast, two come

along at once. And it is a new

0:23:460:23:55

personal best, Murielle Ahoure was

just a fraction away from her world

0:23:550:24:02

record. But the champion, winning

her country's first ever global gold

0:24:020:24:08

medal, from the Ivory Coast,

Murielle Ahoure, with a superb

0:24:080:24:17

performance, 6.97. You have to go

all the way back to the olden days

0:24:170:24:19

of the 1990s for a time given that,

Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce won four

0:24:190:24:25

years ago 64.90 eight. So if that is

any measure, then Murielle Ahoure is

0:24:250:24:31

right up there with a top-class

performance.

0:24:310:24:36

What a moment for her, and what a

moment for the Ivory Coast, gold and

0:25:520:25:56

silver in the women's 60 metres.

Murielle Ahoure and Marie-Josee Ta

0:25:560:26:02

Lou, her team-mate, and Mujinga

Kambundji for Switzerland taking the

0:26:020:26:05

bronze.

0:26:050:26:11

STUDIO: So far for Great Britain it

has all been about the women, hasn't

0:26:230:26:27

it? It has very much been ladies

night. We've just had a chat with

0:26:270:26:34

Katarina Johnson-Thompson, and we

saw Laura Muriel take a medal

0:26:340:26:46

earlier on, can she add to her

growing

0:26:460:26:52

growing collection of world and

European medals?

0:26:530:26:58

COMMENTATOR: Laura Muir stretches

away and comes to win the gold

0:26:580:27:02

COMMENTATOR: Laura Muir stretches

away and comes to win the gold medal

0:27:020:27:02

for Britain. Look how fast she is

going. She has now got two gold

0:27:020:27:08

medals. She is the champion again.

Laura Muir! Laura Muir has one last

0:27:080:27:17

effort. She has definitely got a

medal, but what colour will it be?

0:27:170:27:23

Indoors is something she excels at.

0:27:230:27:29

Steve Cram and Paula Radcliffe are

up in the commentary box. Good

0:27:290:27:32

evening.

Good evening.

Good to see

you both up there and enjoying the

0:27:320:27:37

light show going on behind you. This

is obviously a great opportunity for

0:27:370:27:41

Laura, because the tactics as you

pointed out, Steve, with the men and

0:27:410:27:45

the heats of the women the other

day, they are so important indoors,

0:27:450:27:49

and Laura navigated her semifinal

very well the other day. It was

0:27:490:27:51

always going to be tough, so how do

you see at playing out for her

0:27:510:27:56

tonight? How do you see her

approaching this one?

I think she is

0:27:560:27:59

probably going to have to be a

little bit patient again almost like

0:27:590:28:03

she was in the 3000. I don't think

she will want to make the first

0:28:030:28:07

move. She has got Dibaba again, and

she

0:28:070:28:23

she has got Chepkoech as well. I

think Laura just needs to be as

0:28:230:28:27

close as she can when the real move

comes on and see what she has got

0:28:270:28:32

left in her legs. She will fight for

a medal like she did in the 3000.

0:28:320:28:37

Have you spoken to her or her coach,

Paula? Do you know how she's

0:28:370:28:40

feeling, has she got it left in her

legs after the tough 3000 and in the

0:28:400:28:45

1500 coming less than 24 hours

later?

I haven't spoken to her, I

0:28:450:28:49

spoke to her after the race and she

was happy then, but I think they

0:28:490:28:52

feel it is a little bit less

pressure heading into the 1500

0:28:520:28:56

metres, just go in and enjoy

themselves. I did speak to Hassane

0:28:560:29:00

earlier, and she said she felt

better in the heats of the 1500 and

0:29:000:29:06

she had in the 3000, so I think it

will come down to who is the less

0:29:060:29:11

fatigued, and Chepkoech is obviously

the

0:29:110:29:13

fatigued, and Chepkoech is obviously

the one coming in with fresh legs.

0:29:130:29:16

The way that the three of them ran

that final half of the 3000 is will

0:29:160:29:21

undoubtedly have taken something out

of them, and if I'm honest, I think

0:29:210:29:25

the person who is more likely to

show the cracks is actually Dibaba.

0:29:250:29:31

I think Sam and Laura will be tired,

but they will fight through it.

0:29:310:29:37

Dibaba if she feels tired tends to

have that tendency to give up a

0:29:370:29:40

little bit or make the wrong

tactical decision.

That is where we

0:29:400:29:45

disagree, I think Dibaba will still

be strong. When it is not going

0:29:450:29:50

well, Dibaba just cracks, I do agree

with that, but I think she is the

0:29:500:29:53

one who will force this. Chepkoech

is capable, but if she will just

0:29:530:29:58

take this on, they will make it a

race that the 3000 women will feel

0:29:580:30:03

the 3000 in ie make it a 1500 metres

that is hard rather than to burn up

0:30:030:30:07

over the last few laps. If it is not

moving after five or 600 metres, I

0:30:070:30:14

think Dibaba will want to get

through. It is an intriguing race,

0:30:140:30:17

three or four great athletes in

there, so let's hope Laura can do

0:30:170:30:20

it.

A busy evening tonight, nine

finals, I have no doubt we will

0:30:200:30:24

speak to as the evening progresses.

0:30:240:30:29

The light show was for the pole

vaulters who are coming in and being

0:30:290:30:35

introduced. Stefanidi just has one

piece missing and it is this. You

0:30:350:30:42

would put money on her.

If you're a

gambling person for sure. She has

0:30:420:30:49

been fantastic last season. And that

hunger, that desire to add to her

0:30:490:30:54

collection is so important. She is

consistent.

They're just warming up

0:30:540:30:58

for that and we can just go back and

relive a bit of 60-metre... Let's

0:30:580:31:05

look at those... Heats. Which

happened this morning of course.

0:31:050:31:16

Christian Coleman had a stumble.

Yes, but he looked so in control,

0:31:160:31:20

even with the stumble. It gives an

indication of the calibre he has,

0:31:200:31:26

just the class of the field, the

world record holder. He will want to

0:31:260:31:30

get that right. The world champion

calibre athlete after making a

0:31:300:31:36

mistake. They want to show

themselves and prove to themselves

0:31:360:31:40

that I know what I'm doing here and

I won't make a mistake like that

0:31:400:31:43

again. It will be interesting, he

may lay down something to send a

0:31:430:31:52

message to anyone who may have

thought after this morning that he

0:31:520:31:57

is vulnerable.

The Chinese athlete

has this incredible start.

He has a

0:31:570:32:03

great start. If Coleman was to

faulter, he would be the one to get

0:32:030:32:11

in there. He has a good chance for a

medal, because of the way he starts

0:32:110:32:16

and his ability to drive out of the

blocks aggressively. I expect he and

0:32:160:32:22

Coleman will be just about even for

the first 20 metres are so. He is so

0:32:220:32:28

efficient and he has power. Pretty

quick. Good leg speed. Also just the

0:32:280:32:36

ability to create angles out of

blocks to give him that force to go

0:32:360:32:41

forward. That is good core strength

that allows him to do that.

They're

0:32:410:32:45

going off at 10 past 7 the

semi-finals. In Su's semi is Ujah,

0:32:450:32:51

what did you make of his

performance?

He looked good. He gets

0:32:510:32:55

faster. You will notice, unlike the

others, he gets faster as the race

0:32:550:33:03

gets going. He starts to pull away

later. What is impressive and it

0:33:030:33:08

wasn't what I saw in that race, but

speaking with him before I came here

0:33:080:33:13

in the lobby, he just seemed like he

is in a mind set that he knows this

0:33:130:33:18

is an opportunity for him. He said

he felt good this morning and felt

0:33:180:33:23

good about this afternoon. But he

knows he has work to do. And his

0:33:230:33:27

mind set seems like he understands

what is ahead of him and he feels

0:33:270:33:31

confident of what he needs to do and

that he can do it. But he knows it

0:33:310:33:36

is tough.

It is a great place to be.

Glasgow last week, he wasn't at his

0:33:360:33:41

best and I was concerned, because he

started to talk about winning. I

0:33:410:33:45

want to see the old CJ where he is

focussed on being himself and just

0:33:450:33:50

running his own race.

That is to

come. Now the turn of the hurdlers.

0:33:500:33:58

First the women's semi-finals.

Andrew Cotter.

0:33:580:34:05

COMMENTATOR: The great hope rests

with Pearson.

0:34:130:34:23

with Pearson. Plotitsyna there.

Charlton has had a good season.

0:34:230:34:37

Amusan can threaten the medals. If

she makes the final. Manning one of

0:34:370:34:45

three very strong Americans. Fifth

in London at the World

0:34:450:34:49

Championships. Won the Tour title

after her victory in Glasgow. Herman

0:34:490:34:57

of Belarus, a world junior champion

a couple of years ago and Kozak of

0:34:570:35:05

Hungary.

0:35:050:35:10

Hungary. On the inside we saw

Loncarek of Croatia.

0:35:150:35:29

Christina Manning goes in lane 6.

Look out for Amusan and Charlton

0:35:330:35:41

alongside her.

0:35:410:35:50

And well only two go through. It is

tight for second. But Christina

0:35:510:35:57

Manning ran a good race and a

determined race to take her through.

0:35:570:36:02

Amusan with a smile as well.

Manning, we talk about the

0:36:020:36:09

imponderables, the things that can

go wrong in hurdles and negotiating

0:36:090:36:13

the barriers and the pit falls,

Christina Manning and Charlton has

0:36:130:36:21

second place with a national indoor

record.

We have got to look at that

0:36:210:36:25

third place time as well. Very swift

running by the Nigerian. Wasn't

0:36:250:36:33

Manning great? Very good out of the

blocks. She is aggressive, the gun

0:36:330:36:41

goes, crack, head down, she focuses

on the hurdle. She runs off hard,

0:36:410:36:47

powerfully and strong. Keeping it

nice and calm. Not rushing anything.

0:36:470:36:52

Just relying on the times and times

she has done hurdle clearances. She

0:36:520:36:56

has done this well. Comes off the

final barrier and cruises into a

0:36:560:37:02

lovely 7.83.

And 7.91 for Amusan the

Nigerian. You would suspect that

0:37:020:37:09

might be good enough with the two

fastest losers going through. A good

0:37:090:37:15

run by Charlton. She goes through

with Christina Manning.

0:37:150:37:22

STUDIO: We are lucky we have seen

one gold medal in the studio, I'm

0:37:220:37:29

delighted the women's 60-metre cold

medal winner is with us, Murielle

0:37:290:37:36

Ahoure. We loved your victory last

night.

Thank you.

You ran so well.

0:37:360:37:43

Your progress through the whole day

was fantastic. You must have felt

0:37:430:37:47

like you had so much energy, because

you hit the board at the end and ran

0:37:470:37:52

straight back again. I think you ran

200 metres.

I was so excited, I

0:37:520:37:57

couldn't believe it. I have trained

so hard for this from the beginning

0:37:570:38:01

of the season. My coach Alan Powell,

I train in Texas, he told me I could

0:38:010:38:07

do this and we tried two times

already and I came out with two

0:38:070:38:11

silvers. We were just excited. Our

goal was to definitely to get gold

0:38:110:38:19

this year. So third time, I'm so

happy.

It proves that patience is a

0:38:190:38:29

virtue. When you talk about age, but

you have been in the game a while.

0:38:290:38:33

Those celebrations.

The cameraman

almost pulled his hamstring, trying

0:38:330:38:39

to catch you!

Oh, my goodness.

That

patience to keep coming back was so

0:38:390:38:46

fantastic.

Thank you so much. It has

been amazing. It has been a tough

0:38:460:38:50

last couple of years for me from

injury and last year my father

0:38:500:38:55

passed away from cancer after

battling for two years. So I went

0:38:550:39:01

through depression and different

things. But God put people in my

0:39:010:39:05

life. My mentor. She also died from

breast cancer. It was good to have

0:39:050:39:13

uplifting people with her and my

coach.

0:39:130:39:21

coach.

When your dad died you sad

you could hardly get out of bed.

I

0:39:220:39:28

know I don't know how I got the

first place in the world charp ships

0:39:280:39:32

last year. I was not there at all.

Just a total fog. So the leader was

0:39:320:39:37

there with me and talked me through

and she gave me her energy and you

0:39:370:39:42

know my coach again, we talked

through face time, 24/7. Probably

0:39:420:39:47

too much. But it is good.

Stay with

-- stay us with. Now back to the

0:39:470:39:57

60-metre hurdle and Steve Cram. And

we have two potential medal winners.

0:39:570:40:07

STEVE CRAM:

You have the reigning

European champion and Sally Pearson

0:40:090:40:14

and Harrison, the world record

holder. Harrison looked superb in

0:40:140:40:22

qualifying yesterday. Didn't even

win the US champs. This is the

0:40:220:40:27

question against Harrison, it is

when the chips are down, can she

0:40:270:40:31

perform? This is how they line up.

Lindley

0:40:310:40:46

Lindley of Nigeria ya, Kerekes,

Talay. Lindley of Nigeria, a new

0:40:460:40:53

personal best this year. She won in

Ireland. Kerekes of Hungary. The

0:40:530:41:07

Hungarian indoor champion. Talay,

not almost back to her best. She won

0:41:070:41:16

a bronze medal indoors in 2012 and

outdoors in 2015. So Harrison, is

0:41:160:41:22

this her chance to win the global

title? Looks a little nervous. Sally

0:41:220:41:30

Pearson looks like she means

business as ever. Mixing an outdoor

0:41:300:41:39

and indoor season. Heading back to

the Commonwealth Games in our home

0:41:390:41:44

patch.

0:41:440:41:49

patch. Roleder of jarmy. And Boons

of the Netherlands. She was second

0:41:520:41:57

in Ireland to Lindley. And Neziri of

Finland. Just the top two. So the

0:41:570:42:08

fastest loser time for Amusan was

7.91. So if either of these, well

0:42:080:42:15

there is three, Roleder, Pearson and

Harrison, who ever finishes third

0:42:150:42:22

needs to be quick.

0:42:220:42:27

A Championship record, Jones, goes

back to Doha in 2010. That could be

0:42:370:42:44

under threat today.

0:42:440:42:47

It is going to be Harrison. Roleder

comes through. 7.77. The third will

0:42:530:43:04

probably be quick enough. One more

semi-final to come of course.

0:43:040:43:10

Harrison was not as quick as Pearson

out of the blocks. By the time she

0:43:100:43:16

got the first hurdle she was on her

way. That is taken up to 7.79.

0:43:160:43:23

Pearson at the moment is a hundredth

slower.

That 7.92 could be vital.

0:43:230:43:34

She is hanging on. Kendra Harrison

is a brilliant all-round athlete.

0:43:340:43:43

She handled Pearson well. Sally's

always great, drives hard. Nearly

0:43:430:43:48

perfect over this barrier. But

Kendra has that leg speed. Look how

0:43:480:43:55

aggressive she is. When her trail

leg hits the floor, she pushes on.

0:43:550:44:01

That shows she is confident in her

technique and can marry the leg

0:44:010:44:05

speed with good solid technique and

that gets her to the line most of

0:44:050:44:09

the time first.

How do you compare

to that the run in the heats? That

0:44:090:44:18

looked more of an effort. Let's do

the result first.

0:44:180:44:27

And what an exciting final that will

be at 8:55pm. There is a story doing

0:44:340:44:40

the rounds that last night when you

win to get your flag to do the lap

0:44:400:44:43

of honour, there was no Ivory Coast

Flag around, so you took an Irish

0:44:430:44:47

flag?

Yes, and I just flipped it

upside down, so it is just the

0:44:470:44:52

opposite.

We can work with this! I

love the idea, you can't tell the

0:44:520:45:01

difference.

We have to do is a thing

about that, there should be some

0:45:010:45:08

Ivory Coast flags out here, because

you are on the rise.

The Irish are

0:45:080:45:14

very happy!

0:45:140:45:21

very happy!

There is a resurgence of

sprinters that you guys have, with

0:45:210:45:27

Murray and Ta Lou.

We have three,

but one couldn't make it here.

0:45:270:45:33

Before when I started in the Olympic

is, I was totally alone and scared

0:45:330:45:40

out of my mind, but every year,

people keep coming, so we are so

0:45:400:45:45

excited, the team is growing, we

have heard Liz and shot put is. --

0:45:450:45:54

hurdlers and shot puts.

And you top

the medal table at the moment, and

0:45:540:46:03

you are the first African sprinter,

male or female, to win the 60 metres

0:46:030:46:07

title, so a real pioneer.

It is

crazy. In 2013, I was the first

0:46:070:46:13

African woman to medal, so to be

able to do this boar years later

0:46:130:46:19

after every I have been through is

unbelievable.

So what is next?

My

0:46:190:46:26

coach wants me to focus on the 200

metres this year. I don't like it

0:46:260:46:31

too much, but it makes my 100 metres

better, so I will go back and do

0:46:310:46:35

some heavy training.

I'm sure you

will carry forward wonderful

0:46:350:46:39

experiences here.

Thank you so much

for having me, I appreciate it.

St

0:46:390:46:45

Patrick's Day is coming up soon, so

if you fancy it a visit to Dublin!

0:46:450:46:52

Thank you. Let's get back out there

for the third and final semifinal of

0:46:520:46:59

these women's 60 metres hurdles.

COMMENTATOR: United States have two

0:46:590:47:04

from two so far, Christina Manning

and Kendra Harrison winning so far

0:47:040:47:09

can Shinnie canal -- Sherrock

0:47:090:47:18

can Shinnie canal -- Sherrock Nelvis

do it as well? Overall this is a

0:47:190:47:22

very strong event, the 60 hurdles,

and there is the line-up for this

0:47:220:47:25

one.

0:47:250:47:28

Sharika Nelvis certainly the athlete

to watch in lane three, two go

0:47:310:47:39

through automatically, and I would

stick minor character and say that

0:47:390:47:42

the fastest losers might be OK with

7.91 and 7.92. Eline Berings, still

0:47:420:47:58

running close to eight seconds. I

think you will have to go below

0:47:580:48:01

eight seconds. Mrs Rita Hurske of

Finland. And the fastest in the

0:48:010:48:09

world this year, 7.70 she has run,

two hundreds outside the world

0:48:090:48:21

record. Isabelle Pedersen equalled

her personal best in the first

0:48:210:48:27

round. Stephanie Bendrat at, the

Austrian champion, usually a quick

0:48:270:48:34

starter. And Nadine Visser, won the

European under 21 title last year.

0:48:340:48:46

Another one who is a good

multi-event, Karolina Koleczek of

0:48:460:48:56

Poland, silver in the European under

23s.

0:48:560:49:07

23s. And Andrea Ivancevic in the

outside lane. So, two to go through,

0:49:070:49:13

and we have had two very clean races

so far. The fastest losers at the

0:49:130:49:19

moment, and only two will go

through, they are Amusan of Nigeria.

0:49:190:49:28

Sharika Nelvis has watched her

team-mates Manning and Harrison go

0:49:340:49:36

through. She will try and take her

place in the final. That is just

0:49:360:49:43

before nine o'clock this evening.

0:49:430:49:51

The last semifinal in the women's 60

metres hurdles.

0:49:510:49:59

A good start by Isabelle Pedersen,

and also by that rat. And under

0:50:020:50:10

pressure here, that was close, and

Sharika Nelvis almost eased back on

0:50:100:50:15

the line. 7.83 for the winner, so

all three will go through, but what

0:50:150:50:20

a run for Nadine Visser. She has

been running well, but 7.83, that is

0:50:200:50:28

a big personal best for the Dutch

athlete. And Stephanie Bendrat and

0:50:280:50:33

Sharika Nelvis as well. I think

Nelvis knew that she was going to go

0:50:330:50:42

through, but down into second place

there. What a run from Nadine

0:50:420:50:45

Visser, Nelvis has more to spare,

but that was a good race.

It was,

0:50:450:50:51

can you imagine when read the others

into that? Nelvis look like she

0:50:510:50:58

clattered that first hurdle. No, she

clears that one well. It was in lane

0:50:580:51:04

two, that caused that upset for her.

She never got into the groove, I

0:51:040:51:08

thought she had made a mistake early

on. To accelerate through, chilled

0:51:080:51:13

at the end that is a risk to take

when people are right your.

Pedersen

0:51:130:51:17

and Visser have run good personal

races. They really pushed Nelvis all

0:51:170:51:26

the way.

This is what we like to

see, people arriving at these

0:51:260:51:31

championships coming into great

form, making competitive races right

0:51:310:51:34

the way through. This is going to be

a red-hot final.

And that run by

0:51:340:51:39

Isabelle Pedersen in third place is

going to knock out Sally Pearson,

0:51:390:51:43

because she will go through,

Isabelle Pedersen, with Amusan as

0:51:430:51:47

the fastest loser.

0:51:470:51:54

the fastest loser. It was a good run

by Visser to make sure things, and

0:51:540:51:57

she goes through with Sharika

Nelvis.

0:51:570:52:03

Let's have a look at Nelvis from

here. She is the fastest woman in

0:52:030:52:09

the world, remember. Works fast into

that first hurdle. Takes it well,

0:52:090:52:12

and I think she didn't look as

aggressive as the other two Arican

0:52:120:52:18

-- Americans coming off the

barriers. I think she has a lot more

0:52:180:52:23

in the tank, if I'm honest, and I

think this is just a little sign

0:52:230:52:29

that she is going to say, I can

still run 7.8 and I will cruise

0:52:290:52:32

through.

And I'm glad I stuck my

neck out and said I thought that

0:52:320:52:36

Sally Pearson would be fine, she is

not, she is gone, because Isabelle

0:52:360:52:41

Pedersen ran a great personal best

to go through. This, Nelvis and

0:52:410:52:50

Pedersen are all qualified, but

Sally Pearson is not true. She is

0:52:500:52:52

focused on the Commonwealth Games,

but she would have loved to have

0:52:520:52:57

been in the final here. Not quite an

form to challenge here, but once you

0:52:570:53:01

are into the finals, you never know,

and those are the women who will

0:53:010:53:06

contest the final later on this

evening.

0:53:060:53:11

Thank you, Andrew. Let's pick the

bones out of that lot, and we talk

0:53:110:53:16

about the differences with 60

metres, 100 metres, but would you

0:53:160:53:23

say the 60 metres indoors is a more

true reflection of the long event in

0:53:230:53:27

terms of their is not as much

advantage?

I think the 60 metres

0:53:270:53:32

hurdles on the 100 metres hurdles

are very similar, I do think there

0:53:320:53:34

is much of a difference at all.

Do

we see more of the usual names?

0:53:340:53:39

Exactly. I don't think that a better

start in the hurdles will have an

0:53:390:53:45

advantage over someone who is not as

good a start in the hurdles. I think

0:53:450:53:50

the hurdlers who are more mistake

prone will have an advantage at 60

0:53:500:53:53

because it is fewer hurdles, you

don't have as much opportunity...

0:53:530:54:01

And I think taking into account the

speed and endurance

0:54:010:54:03

And I think taking into account the

speed and endurance element at the

0:54:030:54:07

end of hurdles eight, nine and ten.

I am thinking of Tiffany Porter at

0:54:070:54:13

this moment in time, fantastic

indoors, clean and strong up to the

0:54:130:54:17

eighth hurdle, but sometimes you see

her tiring, I think fatigue kicks

0:54:170:54:21

in. But you have got to start

indoors, you have got to be strong

0:54:210:54:25

and get that first hurdle cleanly.

Let's go through the heats in order,

0:54:250:54:30

then. Christina Manning in the first

heat, Michael.

0:54:300:54:33

then. Christina Manning in the first

heat, Michael.

Think she feels there

0:54:330:54:36

is something to prove that this

championships.

0:54:360:54:42

championships. She was able to get

in here by her performance on the

0:54:420:54:45

circuit. And she ran very, very

clean here, she did well through the

0:54:450:54:51

rounds and is really determined,

very clean through this race and

0:54:510:54:54

seem to control it from the very

beginning all the way through to the

0:54:540:54:57

end. So she certainly will figure

into the medals. Third fastest time

0:54:570:55:04

this year of all the 60 metres

hurdles women, and it's not about

0:55:040:55:09

times, though. It is about place.

And I think she feels that she has a

0:55:090:55:14

real opportunity. With her time she

will be in the middle of the track,

0:55:140:55:17

and the other Americans will be

there along with a Visser in the

0:55:170:55:20

middle.

She is making up for lost

time, she had a couple of years of

0:55:200:55:25

injury, but since last

0:55:250:55:31

year, and definitely indoors, she

has look formidable.

And how great

0:55:370:55:39

to have her here because she did so

well in the circuit, she got a bonus

0:55:390:55:43

play, see you don't want any of the

American athletes to miss out on

0:55:430:55:45

this stage. The second heat, and the

greatest of all in terms of world

0:55:450:55:49

records, that is Kenny Harrison.

A

little jump in the blocks, but she's

0:55:490:55:51

always smooth, came under a little

bit of pressure on that first hurdle

0:55:510:55:53

from Sally Pearson, but acquitted

herself well. She is so quick

0:55:530:55:58

between the hurdles, just

unbelievable, she was able to

0:55:580:56:00

overcome that slight deficit to the

first hurdle, just a little bit

0:56:000:56:07

quicker, but then Kenny Harrison

just able to make up ground in

0:56:070:56:10

between the hurdles, because she is

just so quick and so fast. But she

0:56:100:56:16

has had problems in the past, not

able to make the Olympic team in

0:56:160:56:20

2016 when she was overwhelming

favourite last year out of the

0:56:200:56:23

medals at the World Championships,

coming into that championship. So I

0:56:230:56:28

think similar to a KJT situation,

you want that global medal, and this

0:56:280:56:36

is an opportunity for her.

Coming

through the rounds.

To acquit

0:56:360:56:39

herself of some of those demons.

And

backing up that time, superfast.

0:56:390:56:47

Sally Pearson and Kenny, you see

they are both two technically

0:56:470:56:50

proficient hurdlers, and Sally was

able to raise her game, so it was a

0:56:500:56:56

little bit much like a revenge race

for those two, and Kenny came out on

0:56:560:57:01

top. She is looking dangerous for

me.

She is looking great, and I

0:57:010:57:05

think this may be a good situation

for her, because she doesn't come

0:57:050:57:08

into this with the fastest time, so

maybe Sharika Nelvis who we saw in

0:57:080:57:12

the next heat came in with a fastest

time, 7.70 four the year, that might

0:57:120:57:18

have taken the pressure off Kenny.

I

think so, because it is that final

0:57:180:57:23

when there's fast girls are lined

up, can she keep her composure.

0:57:230:57:27

Let's have a look and complete the

triptych. Nadine Visser looks like

0:57:270:57:33

the one perhaps who could be

breaking up the American dominance.

0:57:330:57:37

I think not only this but also

leader from Germany. If you

0:57:370:57:49

leader from Germany. If you look at

this, she looks like she is running

0:57:520:57:53

with the handbrake, and I know Colin

Jackson suggested she was holding

0:57:530:57:57

something back, but she doesn't look

as confident as she has so far this

0:57:570:58:02

season, so I am just wondering how

she is going to get her mind in the

0:58:020:58:05

right place to deliver yet another

devastating performance.

I will ask

0:58:050:58:08

you to pick your one, two, three for

me later on. The final is five to

0:58:080:58:16

nine, but we are now entering into

the men's heats, and plenty of

0:58:160:58:21

Easter come. -- plenty of these to

come. The first has a Brit involved,

0:58:210:58:28

Jonathan King.

0:58:280:58:36

I think Dave King will think he has

a good chance of going through here,

0:58:370:58:43

we have one nonstarter, the athlete

from Iraq not in this. King is in

0:58:430:58:51

four.

0:58:510:58:56

four. This is Milan Trajkovic from

Cyprus, won earlier this year, has

0:58:570:59:05

been very good on the circuit.

Nicholas Hough just missed out on a

0:59:050:59:10

medal in Glasgow.

0:59:100:59:15

medal in Glasgow. Zebroski from

Poland, and then David King. UK

0:59:160:59:22

outdoor champion last year, second

in the indoor Championships.

0:59:220:59:29

And then Vladimir Vukicevic from nor

me, and Aurel Manga, had a chance in

0:59:340:59:43

what could be an open event. Smit

from the Netherlands, the Dutch

0:59:430:59:49

champion. So, top four to go through

here. If you look on times, they are

0:59:490:59:54

certainly in the mix, but it is

going to be close. It depends on who

0:59:540:59:59

delivers the performance here. Hough

has not run indoors, the Australian.

0:59:591:00:08

King may well qualify. 7.57. He

continues what has been a good

1:00:391:00:44

season. He got a reasonable start.

King got a good start in the middle.

1:00:441:00:49

There was one or two hitting

hurdles. Hough didn't perform well.

1:00:491:00:54

Well done David King, into the

semi-final. The winning time 7.56.

1:00:541:01:00

He will be pleased, he was on the

edge on paper for qualification.

Yes

1:01:001:01:07

I was talking to a journalist about

his potential and I said he has been

1:01:071:01:12

good. And being in that outside

lane, you can concentrate and get

1:01:121:01:17

away from the mess happening. There

is a lot of hurdles being clattered

1:01:171:01:25

and David King managed to do that.

But it was a fast race. For me, I

1:01:251:01:29

think David maybe a bit disappointed

he didn't get closer to the top end,

1:01:291:01:34

get closer to that 7.60 mark. But I

think that may be enough. I'm going

1:01:341:01:39

to keep scanning down and see

exactly where he is for

1:01:391:01:44

qualification.

He makes it through

in the top four, Collin,. He is not

1:01:441:01:56

quite at the top. Was he hampered.

Zebrowski was clattering hurdles.

1:01:561:02:08

When people clatter hurdles, they

come into you and you naturally

1:02:081:02:12

extend your stride and then you

literally have to jump to it clear

1:02:121:02:17

it. David could have suffered from

that.

But he is through. 7.69 his

1:02:171:02:23

time. He is with JJ.

You're through,

how do you feel?

It was good.

1:02:231:02:30

Executed pretty well. I just needed

more urgency over the first. But I

1:02:301:02:35

did what I needed to do. So I'm

happy.

Coming into this you said

1:02:351:02:40

consistency was key, did you feel

consistent?

Yes definitely.

1:02:401:02:45

Something I struggled with last

year. I dropped a time last year.

1:02:451:02:50

But this year I'm consistently in

the 7.6s and looking for that drop

1:02:501:02:55

now and if I time it right hopefully

it will come.

It your first World

1:02:551:03:03

Championships, how is it living up

to your expectations?

It's great. I

1:03:031:03:08

have always loved coming to

Birmingham. Now with a big home

1:03:081:03:12

crowd it is incredible.

Thank you

for talking to us. Best of luck

1:03:121:03:15

tomorrow.

One or two won't be happy.

Hough did get a personal best and

1:03:151:03:23

I'm told he is in the Australian

team for the Commonwealth Games in

1:03:231:03:28

April.

1:03:281:03:35

Some pole vault action getting under

way and Sandi Morris about to jump.

1:03:441:03:53

We have Stefanidi, the Greek

athlete. We enjoyed watching her

1:03:531:03:57

jump in Glasgow. And Nageotte is

there. These events have been

1:03:571:04:07

competitive and this looks as though

it is going to go that way. Sandi

1:04:071:04:11

Morris. 4.50.

1:04:111:04:19

Morris. 4.50. That is a brilliant

clearance. A succession of silver

1:04:191:04:23

medals for Morris at world and

Olympic level. A good start for her.

1:04:231:04:34

Eliza McCartney has had Achilles

problems. But that is a good start.

1:04:351:04:41

Also the Olympic bronze medal fris

Rio. Big -- bronze-medallist from

1:04:411:04:48

Rio. Here is a previous world

champion. Silva, world champion in

1:04:481:04:59

2015. So these early heights just to

sort out your run up, get rid of the

1:04:591:05:05

nerves maybe. But Silva under

pressure. Has that stayed on? It

1:05:051:05:09

does. It is a successful clearance.

But needs a bit of a tidy up.

1:05:091:05:18

They're the main protagonists. We

haven't seen Stefanidi yesterday.

1:05:181:05:24

The Greek athlete is the favourite.

Now to the men's 60 metres hurdles.

1:05:241:05:32

Here is how they line up.

1:05:321:05:38

Baji ran a clean race to win bronze

at the World Championships last

1:05:501:05:54

year. Thomas of Trinidad & Tobago.

He has been around a long time. 30

1:05:541:06:02

now. But a new personal best this

season.

1:06:021:06:10

season. Czykier. And there is Ben

Reynolds from Ireland. He goes in

1:06:101:06:19

lane 5 alongside, well, I was going

to say the fastest in the world.

1:06:191:06:28

Jarrett Eaton starts favourite.

Parokhonka of Belarus and Iribarne

1:06:281:06:37

of Cuba has been running well this

season. I said Jarrett Eaton is the

1:06:371:06:45

favourite, but he was going so well

and then hit a barrier and didn't

1:06:451:06:51

finish in Glasgow last weekend.

Shortly after taking the US title.

1:06:511:06:56

He will want a clean run to feel his

way back in. You see some great

1:06:561:07:01

names down there.

1:07:011:07:07

names down there. Robles and

Holloway, who can forget them?

1:07:071:07:11

LAUGHTER.

Four to go through

automatically.

1:07:111:07:20

Cleanly away and Eaton out strongly.

Thomas is all over the shop. Coming

1:07:271:07:36

through is Iribarne. Eaton takes

from it Iribarne. That is what Eaton

1:07:361:07:44

wanted after that run in Glasgow,

because he had been going so well,

1:07:441:07:50

took the US title and hit that

barrier and it can play with your

1:07:501:07:53

mind a bit. To have a decent run,

all that he was wanting.

He probably

1:07:531:08:00

had a good warm up preparing for

this after the mishap of Glasgow. I

1:08:001:08:03

will say. When he smashed the hurdle

and hit the deck. You need that bit

1:08:031:08:08

of a confidence-run. Even when you

have been running well all year. You

1:08:081:08:12

need to remind yourself about the

barriers and sometimes how they can

1:08:121:08:15

give you a bit of a bite if you

don't do them well.

Watch Thomas

1:08:151:08:23

second from the right, he tries to

bound to the first barrier and boom,

1:08:231:08:28

your race is gone.

Of all the

hurdlers he is the shortest I know,

1:08:281:08:33

but he is powerful. When you get it

wrong, you end up in problems like

1:08:331:08:38

that.

We saw the name of Robles and

Iribarne maybe another great Cuban

1:08:381:08:49

talent coming through. Reynolds

couldn't get quite there. We have

1:08:491:08:55

been looking at the strength of

women's hurdling from the United

1:08:551:09:00

States and Eaton laying down a

marker here. So the

1:09:001:09:10

This athlete has made a big break

through. Katie Nageotte. Carries a

1:09:261:09:34

foul here though. Tidies that up

nicely at 4.50. A bit of a wobbly

1:09:341:09:40

start. Under a bit of pressure. Big

smiles from her. World leader.

1:09:401:09:51

smiles from her. World leader. The

youngest competitor in the field,

1:09:511:09:54

Nina Kennedy, just 20 years of age.

Getting close to her lifetime best

1:09:541:09:57

now. 4.60. Oh, yes. A shriek from

her! She is pleased with that. The

1:09:571:10:07

Australian goes into the lead with

that.

1:10:071:10:13

that. Some athletes with bigger

potential to come. Nina Kennedy,

1:10:131:10:18

great vaulting there. Clean plant.

Rocked back. Good drive upwards. All

1:10:181:10:24

in line. Good balance.

1:10:241:10:33

in line. Good balance. Eliza

McCartney. No-heighted at her last

1:10:331:10:38

competition. Bronze-medallist in

Rio. Surprise bronze-medallist. A

1:10:381:10:43

big break through that was for her.

1:10:431:10:48

What a good clearance that was. Came

down on it and gave it a wobble. But

1:10:481:10:52

only because the bar was not quite

in the right place. Seemed to have

1:10:521:10:57

plenty of height.

1:10:571:11:03

plenty of height. McCartney joins

Kennedy, the Kiwi and the Australian

1:11:041:11:06

both going very nicely indeed. But

we still wait for Stefanidi. The

1:11:061:11:13

Olympic and world champion. To join

the competition.

1:11:131:11:21

the competition. McCartney only came

in on Monday. Shook off a bit of jet

1:11:211:11:25

lag. So as we turn our attention to

a previous world champion. Silva,

1:11:251:11:35

now 30 years of age.

1:11:351:11:38

This is her first competition this

winter. A clean plant and oh, yes.

1:11:421:11:48

Kind of stretching everything out of

that.

She is gripping down on the

1:11:481:11:54

top of the pole. What I mean is her

top hand, there is a lot of pole

1:11:541:11:58

behind it. In doing that, gripping

lower on that pole, it makes it

1:11:581:12:02

stiffer. So again checking where her

left foot it. Previously they were

1:12:021:12:09

concerned where her takeoff position

was.

1:12:091:12:17

Now the next heat of 60-metre

hurdles.

1:12:171:12:26

hurdles. Ronald Levy ran 7. 49

winning in Glasgow. That put him in

1:12:281:12:32

contention. As a possible medallist,

if not the gold-medallist. Who

1:12:321:12:38

knows? A long way to do for all of

that. First four will do through.

1:12:381:12:47

Contreras of Spain.

1:12:471:12:55

Contreras moved from Cuba to

represent Spain a couple of years

1:13:001:13:03

ago.

1:13:031:13:08

ago. The Spanish champion. Dahl

Molin. Close to going sub 13 seconds

1:13:081:13:19

last year outdoors. Maholtra of

Indonesia.

1:13:191:13:28

Indonesia. Contan stantino of

Brazil. Javier McFarlane hopes

1:13:321:13:41

He hopes to usurp his brother in

this event. Thingalaya has a good

1:13:451:13:52

chance here. A couple of

performances in the United States.

1:13:521:14:00

Given himself a season's best of

7.83. Its more experience as well

1:14:001:14:05

which counts for a lot. This man,

although he has only had one indoor

1:14:051:14:11

race this year, it was good enough

to impress a lot of people.

1:14:111:14:18

Constantino of Brazil and McFarlane

of Peru, the South American

1:14:181:14:24

representatives will have something

to say about qualification here.

1:14:241:14:33

They get away safely, it is a good

start.

1:14:481:14:59

7.62, Al-Molad wins it. And Leavy,

sometimes I think when it looks so

1:15:001:15:11

easy to qualify, you should be

winning your heat. If he wants to be

1:15:111:15:14

a medal contender, he should, even

though Al-Molad ran well, you should

1:15:141:15:23

be winning your heat, getting into

the winning habit.

You do want to

1:15:231:15:27

win your heat, because it makes

things a little more complicated

1:15:271:15:31

later on, when they do the new draw,

you could end up in a loaded

1:15:311:15:36

semifinal. But Levy did make a

mistake going into that barrier, and

1:15:361:15:41

that could have cost of a little.

When you get dragged back for

1:15:411:15:45

hurdle, it is really off-putting

because it takes you out of your

1:15:451:15:47

rhythm. He is going well, but he

catches that barrier with the top of

1:15:471:15:52

his hamstring and his trail leg, and

it just pulls him back and causes

1:15:521:15:56

him a little bit of grief. He is

tall and rangy, seven strides going

1:15:561:16:03

into this barrier, takes it well, he

is lovely and fluid when he gets it

1:16:031:16:08

right, and I know there has been a

real buzz about him in training, but

1:16:081:16:12

you see how he caught that with the

back of his hamstring, it causes his

1:16:121:16:16

hips to drop. You lose so much speed

when you do that. A little rusty,

1:16:161:16:22

but he will get that out of the way.

I have a question for you. Let's

1:16:221:16:28

concentrate on the guy who wins

this, Al-Molad. He is hurdling so

1:16:281:16:34

close to the others, is he hurdling

the wrong hurdler?

He is swinging

1:16:341:16:40

his lead leg a little bit around his

barrier, but where he will come into

1:16:401:16:44

trouble later on when are people

next to him running at the same

1:16:441:16:47

pace. He is quite slight and may get

beat up.

We will watch for that. He

1:16:471:16:53

is through, there are the top men,

Levy and Contreras join him.

1:16:531:17:05

So, Sandi Morris, perfect job so

far, just that one attempt at 24.50,

1:17:051:17:12

just one attempt needed. Super job,

possibly the best we have seen so

1:17:121:17:19

far, good clearance from Sandi

Morris, still kind of jockeying for

1:17:191:17:24

position. We expect the medals to go

for 80 plus. Sandi Morris is

1:17:241:17:32

certainly a contender. Certainly by

the margin of this clearance, it

1:17:321:17:35

would suggest that. She is way over

that. So, Sandi Morris going strong.

1:17:351:17:43

Sadly, Great Britain's Holly

Bradshaw who we would have loved to

1:17:471:17:51

see competing here, injured at the

moment. We hope she will be back for

1:17:511:17:54

the Commonwealth Games. Next up, a

man who has had his fair share of

1:17:541:18:04

injuries, didn't quite carry his

early speed through when he won his

1:18:041:18:08

European title, but this is another

big opportunity for him. He is drawn

1:18:081:18:14

in lane eight, and I wonder if in

the hurdles that is a good thing to

1:18:141:18:19

be away from any potential trouble

in the middle?

I like to think he is

1:18:191:18:22

focusing on his lane and getting

out. As long as he runs a smooth

1:18:221:18:27

race, whatever lane you are in

shouldn't really make a difference.

1:18:271:18:31

It is nice to be in the middle, but

this allows him to focus on his

1:18:311:18:36

lane, he has got what should be a

comfortable qualification.

And merit

1:18:361:18:41

is there, the world record-holder

outdoors.

Hopefully his mental state

1:18:411:18:45

is in a good place.

When he got back

to the hotel after the morning

1:18:451:18:49

session, he went out for a relaxing

walk, he looked very relaxed.

This

1:18:491:18:54

is a very open event right now, so I

think his opportunity is right there

1:18:541:18:59

in front of him for him to grab, and

he will have Merritt in his heat,

1:18:591:19:04

but I don't think there is anyone

else who will give him a real

1:19:041:19:07

problem. He just has to get clean

through this round and get to the

1:19:071:19:11

next one, and that is where it will

crank up a little bit and you will

1:19:111:19:14

have to be more competitive.

Andrew

Cotter has this one.

1:19:141:19:17

ANDREW COTTER: Thank you. Andy

Pozzi, a lot of spectators have come

1:19:171:19:25

to see how he fares this evening, a

big talent, and also a very popular

1:19:251:19:31

man is a Aries Merritt, very popular

American in lane four.

1:19:311:19:42

Here is chill one -- Cheung from

China, Aries Merritt, what a

1:19:471:20:05

wonderful hurdler he is, few have

had as good a season as he has,

1:20:051:20:13

world record outdoors. Getting back

to that sort of form as well. Al

1:20:131:20:20

Mandeel alongside him has

1:20:201:20:26

Mandeel alongside him has just won

the Asian championship.

1:20:261:20:31

the Asian championship. Xie took

over the mantle of Chinese champion.

1:20:331:20:38

And Pozzi takes the roar of the

crowd. He has been close to medals

1:20:381:20:44

in 2012 and 2014, a lot of injury

problems since then. Last year,

1:20:441:20:48

European indoor champion, but didn't

quite get it right at the World

1:20:481:20:52

Championships in London. So, highs

and lows last year, looking to start

1:20:521:21:01

his season well. Great performance

at the world indoors. But Aries

1:21:011:21:07

Merritt after his great year in

2012, ran 7.43 indoors then, 7.46

1:21:071:21:13

this season, so not too far away

after all his health issues.

1:21:131:21:21

So, Cheung on the inside, then

Douvalidis. Pozzi is in lane eight,

1:21:211:21:32

four to go through automatically,

one more seat after this.

1:21:321:21:34

Cleanly away again, and Aries

Merritt very strong, Pozzi going

1:21:411:21:45

well, they are clean at the moment.

Douvalidis going well, and it is

1:21:451:21:52

7.54, a very smooth run from Andrew

Pozzi, no troubles at all and he

1:21:521:21:58

looks sharp. He ran a cleanly, and a

smile from Aries Merritt, who will

1:21:581:22:02

also go through. He will have more

to spare, didn't quite get it right

1:22:021:22:07

on that occasion. Balnuweit was

going well as well. He has seasons

1:22:071:22:15

best time indoors, Pozzi, and that

is the way to do it, Colin.

Yes, no

1:22:151:22:22

messing about from Andrew Pozzi. He

is out on his own, lane eight, can

1:22:221:22:27

just concentrate on the barrier in

front of him. He knows he is in

1:22:271:22:30

great shape. He has really not done

as much racing as he would like to

1:22:301:22:36

have done, but it really doesn't

show here. He has come with a

1:22:361:22:40

season's best, exactly what you want

from your British athletes. There he

1:22:401:22:44

is on the left of the screen, drives

hard, seven strides to that first

1:22:441:22:49

hurdle. A little bit of rock and

roll as he comes off hurdle four,

1:22:491:22:55

but no worries, he is safely

through.

1:22:551:22:58

Let's have another look at it out of

the blocks, and

1:22:581:23:07

the blocks, and again, Xie on his

left, but he has freed around him.

1:23:071:23:10

That is a luxury on these first

rounds where you can concentrate on

1:23:101:23:14

your own race. He has done a good

warm up and this is a one-off race,

1:23:141:23:18

but he clattered that barrier just

with his ankle, and that tugs you

1:23:181:23:21

back a little bit. So on reflection,

season's best, 7.53, with those

1:23:211:23:30

little mistakes, that is a very good

run.

1:23:301:23:36

Andrew, not mucking about?

No, I

have said it every time we have

1:23:371:23:40

spoken, I am in good nick and I'm

coming into these championships in

1:23:401:23:43

good shape, and I just had a great

time out there, really enjoyable.

1:23:431:23:48

What about your drawer, lane eight,

didn't affect you?

No, it's fine, it

1:23:481:23:53

is just such an amazing atmosphere

in this The Hive Stadium. I have

1:23:531:23:56

raced out of lane nine before.

Actually with this arena, no, it is

1:23:561:24:02

no problem.

You have raced in every

lane here, because you have grown up

1:24:021:24:08

here.

At least a decade, and a lot

of big milestones in my career have

1:24:081:24:13

been here, so I'm just delighted to

be here, and that was a good first

1:24:131:24:18

run. I maybe got too close to four,

and just tipped it, but it was nice

1:24:181:24:23

to be relaxed.

Quick word about your

team, you had your best man's speech

1:24:231:24:28

at the beginning of this, how do you

feel it is going?

I am loving it. I

1:24:281:24:34

have been watching mainly from the

hotel, but they are just incredible.

1:24:341:24:38

So many performances, and everyone

in that team has conducted

1:24:381:24:44

themselves amazingly, so it has

really been good to watch.

Thank you

1:24:441:24:48

for speaking to me, best of luck

tomorrow.

1:24:481:24:51

That is a good run for Pozzi, he

goes through with Aries Merritt and

1:24:511:24:57

Douvalidis and Balmy

1:24:571:25:08

-- Balnuweit.

He led like a captain, and that was

1:25:081:25:11

a very good heat indeed. Denise,

that is what you want at a major

1:25:111:25:16

championship, a seasons best, to

raise your game, he can rest up

1:25:161:25:19

tonight, semis and finals tomorrow,

you were impressed?

I was, he looked

1:25:191:25:24

good. Rattled a few hurdles, but

confidence, exude in confidence and

1:25:241:25:29

really drawing from the crowd. He

talks about important this stadium

1:25:291:25:34

is in his life and his career.

It

was a good start and he was very

1:25:341:25:40

clear and handled this the way we

expected. He wasn't going to get a

1:25:401:25:45

lot of pressure from anyone, you can

see Xie hit that hurdle, but he was

1:25:451:25:51

still able to get himself through to

the next round. Andrew really

1:25:511:25:54

getting through this with no

mistakes, taking his time, being

1:25:541:25:58

patient, doing what he needs to do.

I'm sure he understands and knows

1:25:581:26:03

that that next round will crank up

and he will need to be ready, but

1:26:031:26:05

that should give him some

confidence, finishing ahead of Aries

1:26:051:26:10

Merritt and running a really clean

race through this first round.

And

1:26:101:26:14

let's go to the next heat, shall we?

Steve Cram, and Pascal

1:26:141:26:22

Martinot-Lagarde in this one, the

Frenchman is still only 26, and I

1:26:221:26:29

feel like he has been here for a

long time.

1:26:291:26:35

Yes, he is walking around like he

was 86, at first I thought he was

1:26:351:26:41

hurt, gingerly walking around, busy

just getting himself prepared

1:26:411:26:42

mentally. He is a big unit, and he

is very good at this event indoors

1:26:421:26:49

as well as outdoors, of course.

Fourth at the Olympic Games and in

1:26:491:26:56

the World Championships back in

2015. He has these injury problems,

1:26:561:27:00

probably hasn't been able to fulfil

all of his potential, but he is

1:27:001:27:04

lining up here against a think maybe

one of the toughest of the heats,

1:27:041:27:07

and he should be a cake, but you

have Masuno, love it, Joseph,

1:27:071:27:18

Svoboda.

1:27:181:27:25

Svoboda. Masuno hasn't run indoors

yet this year, semifinalist

1:27:251:27:27

outdoors. This man, as I said, had a

silver medal at these world indoor

1:27:271:27:35

Championships on the last two

occasions, would love to go one

1:27:351:27:39

better here. Eddie Lovett from the

US Virgin Islands. And the man from

1:27:391:27:46

Switzerland, Jason Joseph, European

junior champion last year, he is

1:27:461:27:48

only 19. Svoboda, the European

indoor champion a few years back,

1:27:481:27:54

came back and picked up a bronze

medal, a surprise bronze medal, with

1:27:541:28:00

good performances. Fofana of Italy,

and then Jonathan Cabral, knew from

1:28:001:28:11

the USA, hurdling for Canada. Tough

to make the US team.

1:28:111:28:20

to make the US team. Tevenino in

lane eight. So, just to remind you,

1:28:211:28:23

top four to go

1:28:231:28:29

top four to go through, 7.77, that

is the so far fastest losers.

1:28:291:28:36

So, Martinot-Lagarde will spring

into action here. 7.54 is his

1:28:361:28:44

season's best. He hasn't run under

7.50 in his career, but he is

1:28:441:28:50

perfectly capable of getting in

amongst things.

1:28:501:28:52

Martinot-Lagarde gets a cracking

start, Svoboda going well in the

1:29:101:29:15

middle. Cabral of Canada coming

through, but it is Martinot-Lagarde

1:29:151:29:19

of Canada who will win it from tech

Maxwell and Svoboda -- from Cabral

1:29:191:29:27

and Svoboda. When he is going well,

Martinot-Lagarde, he is going to be

1:29:271:29:32

a handful. I'm not sure there are

any outright favourites in this, but

1:29:321:29:39

we saw Andrew run very well in the

previous heat. A lot of familiar

1:29:391:29:43

names, Colin.

The most important

thing here is to be able to handle

1:29:431:29:47

the pressure. If you can do that and

run a clean, smooth race, sometimes

1:29:471:29:51

it may be the sensible thing just

come off the pedal a little bit to

1:29:511:29:55

make sure you have a clean run,

because when it comes down to it,

1:29:551:29:59

right at the end, it will be the

person who is the smoothest,

1:29:591:30:02

cleanest run who will take this

title. Let's have a look at Pascal.

1:30:021:30:09

He is one of the few Europeans who

has gone under 13 seconds outdoors.

1:30:091:30:14

No real pressure on this, he is not

coming in as French champion, he was

1:30:141:30:20

runner-up in their trials, so the

him to come here now, he can ease

1:30:201:30:23

his way through it uses reputation

and the fact that he is good, he has

1:30:231:30:26

a bit of class about him, to see him

through these early rounds.

1:30:261:30:32

Does his height hinder him. He is

very hunched when he runs. He can't

1:30:321:30:38

use his full height.

Every hurdler

has his own style and you take the

1:30:381:30:45

barriers the way you can do it. The

way your body is designed. His

1:30:451:30:50

technique is not trained. That is

the way he does it.

OK, we'll take

1:30:501:30:56

that! He is not trained! Let's just,

we are waiting for the result and

1:30:561:31:02

now to the pole vault.

This is

Sidorova, the Russian cleared to

1:31:021:31:12

compete as a neutral athlete. It is

her opening height.

1:31:121:31:17

That is good. Very good indeed.

1:31:181:31:26

She has jumped 4.87 this year. In

really good shape. Throws her hat in

1:31:261:31:33

the ring as another contender. It

will go down to a real battle

1:31:331:31:37

between four or five athletes.

Including Katie Nageotte. She has

1:31:371:31:45

shown she can compete.

1:31:451:31:52

Very nicely indeed. First time

clearance that. Looking comfortable.

1:31:551:32:07

The next height 4.70.

1:32:081:32:09

The result of that fifth heat we saw

7.6 #2shgs Martinot-Lagarde's

1:32:121:32:20

winning time.

1:32:201:32:27

Fairly straight forward in term of

qualification, nice to see Pozzi is

1:32:301:32:39

heading up the qualifying. He is

heading the qualifiers.

1:32:391:32:50

heading the qualifiers. So many

familiar names. David King making

1:32:501:32:53

it. He was in the first heat. He is

through to the semi-finals. That is

1:32:531:32:59

when it will get tough.

STUDIO: The semis and the final are

1:32:591:33:05

in the final session which is

tomorrow, we are on air from 2.45.

1:33:051:33:10

Colin Jackson will be in the

commentary box. He can have a quick

1:33:101:33:14

word with us now about the heats and

it is lovely to see Andy Pozzi

1:33:141:33:20

running so well. Who do you think is

going to be challenging him?

This

1:33:201:33:26

will be a close race. We saw what

Jarrett did. He had a clumsy run in

1:33:261:33:33

Glasgow but he has returned well.

Never write off merit. Levy will be

1:33:331:33:39

strong in the semi-final tomorrow.

So you know at the moment for me it

1:33:391:33:44

will be the person with the cleanest

race, keeps their head.

Assess Pozzi

1:33:441:33:52

run, it looked like he got

everything right?

Yeah, I don't

1:33:521:33:56

think Andrew needs to step up much

more. The little mistakes he made,

1:33:561:34:02

he got close to a couple of

barriers, he can resolve that by

1:34:021:34:08

doing a slightly drill session in

his warm up. Although he made the

1:34:081:34:12

mistakes they will cost him perhaps

five or six hundredth and when it

1:34:121:34:15

comes down to the final, those five

or six hundredths could be crucial.

1:34:151:34:19

Thank you Colin. We are going to

head back to the pole vault

1:34:191:34:22

competition. Because Steve Backley,

the New Zealander, Eliza McCartney

1:34:221:34:33

is going very well? COMMENTATOR: Yes

a good day for New Zealand. But she

1:34:331:34:40

has her work cut out at 4.70 now.

1:34:401:34:45

There was a big bend on that and she

has come down on the bar. Too much

1:34:471:34:55

of this new height. I think we will

see some casualties at this height.

1:34:551:35:03

McCartney, mum was a gymnast. Her

dad was a high jumper. That is the

1:35:031:35:09

first big recipe to make a pole

vaulter.

1:35:091:35:18

She drifted off side ways. Needs to

tidy that up a bit. First time fail

1:35:181:35:26

as with all of the vertical jumps it

is three consecutive fouls and

1:35:261:35:37

you're out.

1:35:371:35:42

you're out. Sfud

STUDIO: On the track Ujah is getting

1:35:441:35:47

ready for his semi-final.

1:35:471:35:54

ready for his semi-final. He will

want to get in the top two.

He would

1:35:541:35:58

want to be in the top two. If he is

not, that will actually dent his

1:35:581:36:03

confidence going into the final.

Because that would be below par for

1:36:031:36:06

him. He should be top two.

1:36:061:36:14

him. He should be top two.

Su will

be out on him quickly.

You don't

1:36:181:36:22

worry about lanes at this point. It

is getting through the rounds,

1:36:221:36:30

running your best race. He will want

to send a message that I'm here for

1:36:301:36:36

medals.

In terms of Su's season,

because he is such a good indoor

1:36:361:36:43

athlete, he will be wanting to get

to the top of the rostrum. This will

1:36:431:36:47

be the biggest thing he could

achieve this year.

I think he feels

1:36:471:36:50

this is a real opportunity to win a

gold medal at a Championship, at a

1:36:501:36:57

World Championship. He is so

consistent and goes into this and if

1:36:571:37:02

he gets to the final with a lot of

confidence. Because he can rely on

1:37:021:37:06

his consistency. He knows that he is

in that position where he just has

1:37:061:37:11

to execute his best race and let the

chips fall where they may. He

1:37:111:37:15

doesn't make mistakes. He wouldn't

have to be concerned about

1:37:151:37:20

overcoming any confidence issues or

thinking I have to improve. He just

1:37:201:37:24

has to run his best race.

Here is

his heat. Focus on his start.

You

1:37:241:37:33

will notice diagonal angle is much

better than anyone else. He is very

1:37:331:37:38

focussed and efficient and very

clean with his technique. Upper body

1:37:381:37:43

and lower body. No wasted motion.

You don't see any rocking from side

1:37:431:37:47

to side. You see just power and

efficiency. That is a great

1:37:471:37:51

combination for him and it works

really well.

1:37:511:37:59

really well. From 60 to 100 outdoors

he can't dupe duplicate the same

1:38:011:38:08

power. Ujah, he is an outdoor

athlete.

He won the Diamond League

1:38:081:38:17

and that was a big step up to get

known among the top athletes.

It was

1:38:171:38:24

so consistent last season, that he

got better and better. That is

1:38:241:38:29

confidence that he would have gained

from being the Diamond League winner

1:38:291:38:34

set him in good stead. Now he wants

to take that step forward. He had

1:38:341:38:41

that fantastic relay run as well.

But he will be looking to be

1:38:411:38:47

success.

They said that moment in

London where they won the gold in

1:38:471:38:54

the 4x100 has given them a taste of

it.

That is refreshing to hear.

1:38:541:39:00

Unlike in America, you could live

off a relay medal in this country

1:39:001:39:04

and these athletes I have heard them

I want more than that. This is not,

1:39:041:39:09

they don't get in the sport to win

the relay. It is an individual

1:39:091:39:13

sport. It is refreshing to hear them

say, yeah, I want more. That gave me

1:39:131:39:19

confidence. Now it also made me more

hungry.

There is more on the table

1:39:191:39:24

for them here and Steve Cram will

see if Ujah can get through to the

1:39:241:39:28

final. COMMENTATOR: Thankfully it is

a straight line in terms of

1:39:281:39:34

navigating. He just has to do it as

fast as he can. Given the

1:39:341:39:38

performance in qualifying, he has

every chance. He looked good and

1:39:381:39:42

strong. So did Su, they are the two

we expect to come through. Others

1:39:421:39:49

will hope they will go through. De

Grace is the record holder. This is

1:39:491:40:00

Rodriguez, a very experienced

Spaniard. His best is a few years

1:40:001:40:06

back. Cisse looks sharp. He won't be

too far away. Ujah, a nice clean

1:40:061:40:18

start and perform the way he did

earlier would be fine. Good

1:40:181:40:24

reception for him. Olszewski from

Poland.

1:40:241:40:34

Poland. Su, this pocket rocket, just

explodes out of the blocks. Nobody

1:40:341:40:41

really gets through that first 20

metres than him. Clarke of Jamaica

1:40:411:40:47

will be a danger. Didn't look so

good, it took him a while to get

1:40:471:40:55

going in the heats this morning.

Safo-Antwi, a former British

1:40:551:41:04

competitor. He is in lane 8.

1:41:041:41:09

Only the first two will definitely

make it through to the final. Our

1:41:171:41:23

last event tonight is at 10 past 9.

CJ will so be hoping he will be

1:41:231:41:29

there. Expecting to be there. Su in

6. Watch ought for Cisse. Oh, no.

1:41:291:41:46

Well, that is about as clean a false

start you're ever going to see. Can

1:41:461:41:54

you believe that, Colin?

I'm so

disappointed for that young man. He

1:41:541:42:02

has worked hard to be here. But look

at that.

I mean, you know, CJ's got

1:42:021:42:09

plenty of experience. I know he is

neven nervous. He only had to have a

1:42:091:42:17

decent start.

Please disqualify lane

4.

How can he think that is a

1:42:171:42:23

surprise? Sorry CJ. But unless you

think something set you off, that

1:42:231:42:28

was as clear a false start as you

can see.

Very disappointed for him.

1:42:281:42:33

But part of 60-metre race and all

sprinting is the discipline of the

1:42:331:42:37

start. You have got to be prepared

to sit in your blocks and just wait

1:42:371:42:43

for the starter's gun.

Yet another

global final goes begging for CJ

1:42:431:42:52

Ujah. This time a false start. And

really. I bet he is thinking can I

1:42:521:43:00

please rewind the clock? So now

somebody else will step into these

1:43:001:43:07

shoes. Because that was a spot in

the final just waiting for him

1:43:071:43:11

really. Just quickly look at this.

He is away. There was a little move

1:43:111:43:23

from Olszewski next to him. But

you're just got to wait. Su not one

1:43:231:43:30

of his best starts. Su

1:43:301:43:39

of his best starts. Su makes it

through and Safo-Antwi has taken

1:43:391:43:45

advantage of CJ's major mistake.

1:43:451:43:51

So Su.

Su, yes, I always watch him

in the early rounds and he doesn't

1:43:571:44:05

do anything sensational. He prepares

himself for the big final race. He

1:44:051:44:10

tends to run around 6.5 mark and

then he drops into the 40s. You

1:44:101:44:17

would expect him when you can see

the pace he can run that he could

1:44:171:44:20

step on it. Look how he moves away

and keeps that frequency going from

1:44:201:44:27

40 to 50 and 60 and pulls away.

Great run by Safo-Antwi to take

1:44:271:44:35

second spot. Su out of blocks, we

know he is a good starter. That is

1:44:351:44:40

very, very clear. He works hard.

Because at this stage he is not

1:44:401:44:44

quite heading the field. He will be

thinking, I need to step up a bit.

1:44:441:44:50

When he does, he just accelerates

effortlessly. He just gets leg speed

1:44:501:44:57

from nowhere.

He looked really

relaxed. He puts it all together

1:44:571:45:04

like you said and we could be in for

something fast. We have the other

1:45:041:45:08

big names yet to come. The two men

through Su and Safo-Antwi.

1:45:081:45:20

You can't believe it, the first of

those semifinals and we looked to

1:45:231:45:27

the start, we thought that this

would be quite straightforward, they

1:45:271:45:34

could easily qualify from this, that

you also said earlier on today?

1:45:341:45:40

Earlier today I said, he is in the

right mindset, and I said to him

1:45:401:45:44

when I saw him in the lobby,

somebody always does something

1:45:441:45:48

stupid, make sure it's not you. And

I just can't believe this, because

1:45:481:45:53

it seemed like he was in a good

space, and I'm not sure what he was

1:45:531:45:58

thinking. Just for people at home,

this is not difficult. I know you

1:45:581:46:04

see a lot of false start is, but it

is not difficult. I never fault

1:46:041:46:11

started in a race. We saw Usain Bolt

do it once, and he is the best there

1:46:111:46:17

has ever been, but this is not hard

to do, and especially when you get

1:46:171:46:20

that feed in the semifinal, this is

a semifinal when he wouldn't even

1:46:201:46:24

have had to have run his best. You

didn't have to get a blazing start

1:46:241:46:30

here in order to get through. So you

just don't take the chance,

1:46:301:46:35

especially knowing the rules, you

are out if there is a false start.

1:46:351:46:39

You sit there, reacts to the gun,

don't try to anticipate it, be in as

1:46:391:46:44

higher state of focus as you

possibly can, and when the gun goes

1:46:441:46:49

off, you run.

It is discipline, but

it happens to the best of us,

1:46:491:46:52

Linford Christie did it. But I just

feel for him right now. No

1:46:521:47:01

justification. And Christian

Coleman, the world record-holder,

1:47:011:47:02

going in this.

And he is alongside an empty lane,

1:47:021:47:08

because Collins doesn't run.

Christian Coleman, the world

1:47:081:47:12

record-holder, looking to tidy up

his start from the first round.

1:47:121:47:16

Silver medallist at the world

outdoors last year behind Justin

1:47:161:47:19

Gatlin in London. Emre Zafer Barnes,

former Jamaican schools champion, he

1:47:191:47:27

looked good in qualifying as well.

China might have two in the final,

1:47:271:47:35

because Xie, the 200 metres record

holder in China is running well over

1:47:351:47:40

the shorter distances. And what

about the Ivory Coast, because they

1:47:401:47:42

have the gold and silver from the

women's 60 metres, and Meite going

1:47:421:47:48

here, Arthur Cisse is leading in the

heats. Good times for the Ivory

1:47:481:47:56

Coast. Kimmari Roach from Jamaica

goes in seven, and rows of Sweden.

1:47:561:48:08

-- Rose of Sweden on the outside.

So, Coleman gathers himself.

1:48:081:48:20

And we have seen

1:48:221:48:32

intense Su so far looking pretty

impressive, but he just needs to

1:48:321:48:35

nail that start this time. Two to go

through automatically to the final.

1:48:351:48:45

And it is a good start from

Christian Coleman, he dipped a

1:48:491:48:52

little but is straight into his

running, Christian Coleman, 6.40

1:48:521:48:58

five. Barnes was there, that is fast

to say the least. I think he knows

1:48:581:49:04

that there are things he can pick up

on, 6.45, though, and if he gets it

1:49:041:49:10

right in the final, no one can

really catchy and matches raw pace.

1:49:101:49:14

But that was impressive once again

from Christian Coleman.

Very

1:49:141:49:20

impressive. Still wasn't the best

out of the blocks, and someone like

1:49:201:49:25

Su will look at that and say, if I

can maximise my start, put him under

1:49:251:49:29

pressure early so he is not running

so smoothly, he feels like he has to

1:49:291:49:33

chase me and we can have a race.

And

that it is the question, because he

1:49:331:49:38

is running free and on his own,

nobody challenging him, but if

1:49:381:49:41

someone were able to get a Su

Bingtian style start alongside him,

1:49:411:49:51

put him under pressure...

He has

done 6.30 already this year, so it

1:49:511:49:58

may be hard for somebody to get onto

his shoulder. Let's watch the start

1:49:581:50:02

again, this is still a little messy

for him. He gets down again, doesn't

1:50:021:50:07

really get his feet under him, but

when he is upright, he is already

1:50:071:50:12

switched off and he is just thinking

to himself, where is the finishing

1:50:121:50:15

line? He doesn't even realise how

fast he is going. Crosses the line,

1:50:151:50:20

probably thinks that is a nice 6.6

mark, and it is the 6.45 mark.

6.45,

1:50:201:50:30

extraordinary. The championship

record is 6.42, Maurice Greene back

1:50:301:50:33

in 1999. That will be more than

under threat in the final, I think

1:50:331:50:39

it will go. China will have two

athlete in the final, Barnes at the

1:50:391:50:44

moment is one of the fastest losers,

Meite misses out to Cisse, his

1:50:441:50:54

fellow countrymen, who is still in

one of the fastest loser positions.

1:50:541:50:58

Christian Coleman looking

untouchable, and that word also

1:50:581:51:02

describes this athlete, etc Nice

Defra

1:51:021:51:13

Defra needy -- Ekaterini Stefanidi.

Almost, little shaky on the bottom

1:51:171:51:20

hand, but she had to wait 90

minutes, because they took them off

1:51:201:51:23

the track and had to reintroduce

them. She has waited for an hour and

1:51:231:51:30

a half to do her first vault. She

didn't quite get that hand ahead of

1:51:301:51:35

her in front, so there is a little

slack. What a professional. What a

1:51:351:51:42

champion. She can deal with it at

these early heights.

She is the

1:51:421:51:48

Olympic champion. Here is another

athlete who can give her something

1:51:481:51:53

to think about.

1:51:531:51:58

to think about. This is Anzhelika

Sidorova, a neutral athlete, also

1:52:011:52:02

with a clean card. Looking to match

the height of Stefanidi. That is a

1:52:021:52:10

great clearance, just two athlete we

have seen go clear at this new

1:52:101:52:14

height of 4.70 metres. Everyone else

has had a foul, including Sandi

1:52:141:52:20

Morris. The two Americans have

fouled at this fight,

1:52:201:52:30

fouled at this fight, so Sidorova

and Stefanidi are the only two

1:52:301:52:33

athlete is to go clear.

She is

wearing that pink tape, so maybe a

1:52:331:52:39

little niggle in the knee just

needing additional support.

1:52:391:52:41

And before the final 60 metres

semifinal heat, let's have a quick

1:52:411:52:47

word on Coleman. That strange

replication of the start. What is

1:52:471:52:50

going on?

I had a chance to really

look at it. Look at the right foot

1:52:501:52:55

when it comes out of the block. When

the right foot comes off the block,

1:52:551:52:59

he tries to shorten that step, and

when he tries to shorten that step,

1:52:591:53:04

it throws him off, I'm not sure why

he is trying to do that. What you

1:53:041:53:08

can sometimes do when you get that

shorter step is get more power from

1:53:081:53:11

it and it propels you forward, but

what it is doing for him is it is

1:53:111:53:15

throwing his balance off because it

is not a normal thing, not a normal

1:53:151:53:19

stride. And so we saw this morning

there was an over exaggeration on

1:53:191:53:26

the left side that caused him to

collapse that. This time there was a

1:53:261:53:30

little bit of a hitch again, didn't

work for him but he was able to

1:53:301:53:35

recover. It wasn't as dramatic this

time. Obviously he is the class, and

1:53:351:53:40

he looked amazing recovering from

that, but we see now that he doesn't

1:53:401:53:44

do that. He gets that part of it

right, that could be another world

1:53:441:53:48

record, because he looks incredible

once he does get out.

1:53:481:53:51

Let's hope he gets it right on the

night later on. Andrew Robertson,

1:53:511:53:59

the only Briton left in the 60

metres.

1:53:591:54:00

STEVE CRAM: Andrew wearing arm

warmers, he wasn't this morning,

1:54:001:54:09

probably fairly fortunate not to

have been. That himself this

1:54:091:54:13

morning, so we will see how he goes.

There we saw Dominik Zalesky of the

1:54:131:54:20

Czech Republic, and this is Ronnie

Baker, who was chased Christian

1:54:201:54:25

Coleman home this year. He was

number one in doors last year in the

1:54:251:54:28

world. Warren Fraser from the

Bahamas. I'm not sure we will see

1:54:281:54:37

him contending for the second spot

here, it is really Baker compared to

1:54:371:54:41

the rest. Mohammed from Saudi

Arabia, the 21-year-old. Michael

1:54:411:54:53

Pohl from Germany, and then somebody

I was quite impressed with today,

1:54:531:54:57

the freshfaced Iranians Hassan

Taftian, 6.51 this year. He looked

1:54:571:55:06

good this morning, has he got some

more in the tank? So there is a good

1:55:061:55:12

line-up. . Two, don't forget, so we

expect Baker to go through, but who

1:55:121:55:23

will join him, and will we have any

more. ? I wonder if those act like

1:55:231:55:28

blinkers, like you get a horse

focused ahead. Because it is not

1:55:281:55:34

cold in here.

1:55:341:55:37

Robertson does get a very good start

this time. They are forging away.

1:55:521:55:57

Hassan Taftian on this side going

well, it is going to be those two,

1:55:571:56:02

Hassan Taftian joining Baker, 6.53.

It is kind of business taking care

1:56:021:56:07

of the Baker, no more than that.

Didn't need to be quick, as we just

1:56:071:56:12

saw with Coleman, he knew he had a

comfortable semi from his point of

1:56:121:56:15

view. The question was always going

to be who is going to join him, and

1:56:151:56:19

it was indeed the Iranians who is

very happy, look at him. He is

1:56:191:56:22

through to the final.

Taftian was

very good. Behind Baker it was a

1:56:221:56:31

very competitive race, so for him to

come through that, I think with a

1:56:311:56:37

best performance from him as well.

He is in lane eight, closest to us

1:56:371:56:41

there, and he had to work his way,

passing of a body inside of him, and

1:56:411:56:47

Baker was chilling all the way

through. I think you said it right,

1:56:471:56:50

he knew he had this race under this

belt, he worked hard for the first

1:56:501:56:55

15-20 metres, and once you could

settle down, that's exactly what he

1:56:551:56:57

did.

Just a quick word on Andy

Robertson, he is just walking off.

1:56:571:57:04

He finished in fifth place.

Let's

have a look again. The winner right

1:57:041:57:11

in the centre of the picture for us,

Baker of the United States. Good,

1:57:111:57:17

competent 60 metres runner. No

stress or strain. Andy was running

1:57:171:57:21

hard on the inside, trying his best,

but it wasn't his today. Out of the

1:57:211:57:28

blocks, he works hard, doesn't he? I

think he would love to be back in

1:57:281:57:31

that same type of form that we saw

him in when he was running those

1:57:311:57:37

6.54s in Belgrade, he was capable of

winning medals were. He might be

1:57:371:57:42

disappointed, but he got as far as

he could do, semifinal was a good,

1:57:421:57:46

solid performance from him.

1:57:461:57:54

OK, so the result is 6.52 and 6.57

for the two qualifiers, and Jan

1:57:541:58:05

Volko with that 6.58 will go

through. Just querying that, because

1:58:051:58:11

I wasn't sure that was quick enough,

but it is Barnes and Volko who go

1:58:111:58:16

through as the fastest losers. The

others must be kicking themselves.

1:58:161:58:29

Only two athletes have gone clear so

far at this new height of 4.70

1:58:291:58:33

metres,

1:58:331:58:38

metres, Stefanidi of Greece, and

Sidorova, the neutral athlete. And

1:58:391:58:49

that is a really nice jump from the

American, Sandi Morris. Ignore that

1:58:491:58:59

for now, more jobs to come, it has

been going up in ten centimetres

1:58:591:59:03

increments, but the next fight is

4.75, it slows down a bit. Morris

1:59:031:59:08

has bought herself some more jumps.

1:59:081:59:14

Now to her team-mate, who beat

Morris in the US trials, and is the

1:59:141:59:20

world leader. But also carrying a

foul at this height of 4.70,

1:59:201:59:29

Nageotte. Second time of asking, she

goes clear. So the Americans maybe

1:59:291:59:33

not quite what they would have

wanted, but they are in the mix. We

1:59:331:59:37

have only got four clear now, it is

a 4.70, and Nageotte in fourth

1:59:371:59:44

place. The Americans going strong

still.

Just pushing the polar way,

1:59:441:59:53

has height and keeps going. A little

different from Sandi Morris, she

1:59:531:59:58

tends to pull down on her top hand

and create more of the Bend instead

1:59:582:00:02

of pushing the poll to create the

bend, she pulls down. That makes the

2:00:022:00:06

poll soft, so my money is on

Nageotte, I think, going higher.

2:00:062:00:12

STUDIO: The next final on the track

is the men's 800 metres featuring

2:00:122:00:17

Elliot Giles of Great Britain who

looked very good indeed in the

2:00:172:00:21

semifinals, and Paula Radcliffe is

in the common shoe box for us. You

2:00:212:00:25

can see it is at 7.30 5pm on the

track, and the heptathlon 1000m will

2:00:252:00:31

be an exciting race, because Damian

Warner is hot on the heels of May,

2:00:312:00:35

very similar times in their personal

bests, and as the evening goes on,

2:00:352:00:39

that final that you should mark your

card for, the 1500m at 8.35, Laura

2:00:392:00:47

Muir looking for that, but it will

be down to the tactics. Then the

2:00:472:00:54

fastest men in the world indoors

this year lining up just after nine

2:00:542:00:58

o'clock. Paula, Elliot Giles looked

so good in his heat, and if you look

2:00:582:01:05

down the list, very evenly paced the

time, this field. There is not a lot

2:01:052:01:09

between them obviously. We know that

Kszczot has got the speed, but

2:01:092:01:17

Elliot Giles could get himself on

the rostrum.

2:01:172:01:24

He has, he's got the best

opportunity of getting a global

2:01:242:01:27

medal on the main stage. He is aware

of that, he's running very well. He

2:01:272:01:31

showed that in his semis, in his

seats, he needs to go out there,

2:01:312:01:36

keep his head and race it really

well. Similar to the way he did in

2:01:362:01:41

keep his head and race it really

well. Similar to the way he did in

2:01:412:01:41

qualifying, where he judged his run

to perfection, didn't let himself

2:01:412:01:44

get carried away by what others were

doing but concentrated on running

2:01:442:01:47

his own race. Behind Adam Kszczot,

who really has his best shot of a

2:01:472:01:58

global first medal, a gold medal,

it's wide open. De Arriba is a big

2:01:582:02:09

risk, especially if it's not quick

enough but Elliot Giles is in the

2:02:092:02:12

best shape he's been. He is building

up well from here to the

2:02:122:02:15

Commonwealth Games and who needs to

seize this opportunity.

It was his

2:02:152:02:20

attitude, what he said, you felt it

was a man who is focused and has got

2:02:202:02:26

himself a PB, he wants to go better

than he wants to go faster, he's not

2:02:262:02:30

settling until he leaves here with

some metal in his pocket.

Oh, that's

2:02:302:02:34

a really good sign, he knows what he

needs to do, he knows what he's

2:02:342:02:39

capable of doing, he's trained well

and now needs to put the finishing

2:02:392:02:43

touches to it all.

Thank you very

much, we'll be heading down to Steve

2:02:432:02:47

Cram for commentary on that shortly

but Steve Backley, the pole vault.

2:02:472:02:55

Four athletes clear of 470 so far.

This will be a new lifetime best if

2:02:552:03:07

she can go clear and join the

athletes already gone over. And she

2:03:072:03:13

has! Great jump from the Canadian, a

lifetime best, in the World Indoor

2:03:132:03:18

Championship.

I'm so impressed by

that. What you won't have seen

2:03:182:03:21

earlier is her second attempt. She

was stood on the runway ready to go,

2:03:212:03:25

then they made her sit down and when

she did finally get on the runway

2:03:252:03:31

she went and ran under the bar, so

to come again, build the adrenaline

2:03:312:03:35

in there and focus again and get

over a personal best at the World

2:03:352:03:40

Indoor Championship is, that's

quality. A quality performance to

2:03:402:03:44

recompose herself.

So the

pyrotechnics start and we're going

2:03:442:03:54

to see some fireworks, I'm sure, in

this 800-metre final. Adam Kszczot,

2:03:542:04:04

saw Walden as Spain, two Spaniards

in this final. -- Saul Ordonez. No

2:04:042:04:13

Donovan Brazier of the USA, but they

do have Drew Windle, who could be a

2:04:132:04:17

threat if it's a little bit slow.

Smaili must be delighted he's in

2:04:172:04:21

here, although he didn't win a

bronze at the world Junior

2:04:212:04:24

Championships two years ago. A

threat in the closing stages if he's

2:04:242:04:29

closing of, De Arriba as run closely

this year, a bronze-medallist at the

2:04:292:04:36

European indoors last year. Elliot

Giles gets a huge roar from this

2:04:362:04:43

crowd. His family are in here

watching him tonight and as Paula

2:04:432:04:47

was saying, what an opportunity

here. He's a great athlete, a great

2:04:472:04:52

talent, and he knows that with how

these rounds have gone, we've had

2:04:522:04:57

some disqualifications, had one or

two others who didn't perform, but

2:04:572:05:02

he did. Although there were only ten

men contested the heats, which I

2:05:022:05:05

don't think I've ever seen to World

Championship, World Indoor

2:05:052:05:09

Championship, he did what he had to

do and got into the final here. Ten

2:05:092:05:13

became six and this is now the and

events which Tom McKean won a good

2:05:132:05:18

few years back. Andrew Osagie, our

most recent medallist, bronzes from

2:05:182:05:24

him, can Elliot Giles join them?

2:05:242:05:31

him, can Elliot Giles join them? So

Elliott is just going to have to see

2:05:322:05:34

how this race unfurls. I don't think

the problem is here there are no

2:05:342:05:38

front runners, there are no natural

front runners. Windle likes to come

2:05:382:05:43

from the back, you can see the

Spanish athlete De Arriba already at

2:05:432:05:48

the back, so probably there's a

reluctant leader here, Smaili is

2:05:482:05:51

going through a fairly pedestrian

first 200. They settled down. I

2:05:512:05:57

reckon they'll run I don't know,

54-55 seconds for the first 400,

2:05:572:06:04

which will make it a kickers' race.

That will play into the hands of

2:06:042:06:09

Adam Kszczot and De La Riva as well,

probably Elliot Giles, who needs to

2:06:092:06:14

get itself in the right position but

it reduces it from an 800-metre race

2:06:142:06:19

to a 400-metre race and it becomes

key that you are in the right spot

2:06:192:06:23

to be able to respond to it.

55.77

and Elliot Giles getting caught in

2:06:232:06:30

the pushing and shoving, Windle

grabbing took on to the shorts of

2:06:302:06:36

Windle. It's become a sprinters'

race. Ordonez is trying to make him

2:06:362:06:40

run wide. Elliot Giles should try to

shut off and he does, good, well

2:06:402:06:44

done, gives yourself a chance. He's

given De Arriba the job to go wide.

2:06:442:06:49

Elliott has given himself a huge

opportunity here.

He's put self in

2:06:492:06:53

there with a really good chance,

look at the composure of Adam

2:06:532:06:57

Kszczot, he doesn't do anything

before he needs to.

Stretching it

2:06:572:07:01

out from the front, Adam Kszczot has

never won a gold medal at a major

2:07:012:07:07

event apart from the Europeans, he's

looking for a world title. Elliot

2:07:072:07:14

Giles is third, can he hang onto it?

Kszczot is coming away for the gold,

2:07:142:07:17

Windle will get the silver, Ordonez

gets bronze, Elliot Giles run out of

2:07:172:07:23

it. Well done Adam Kszczot, an awful

lot of people in athletics will be

2:07:232:07:28

absolutely delighted for him, he's a

really nice guy, a popular guy, and

2:07:282:07:31

he's tried to win this medal on so

many occasions, it seems. It's been

2:07:312:07:37

silver in the past, outdoors and

indoors, and now he's the world

2:07:372:07:42

champion. Perfectly judged

performance from him. He's a

2:07:422:07:47

classical tactical 800-metre runner.

I think Elliot got himself caught up

2:07:472:07:51

in some of the pushing and shoving,

didn't have as clean arrays, he made

2:07:512:07:55

a good move when he held De Arriba

off but got himself into a push and

2:07:552:08:00

shove with Drew Windle, who we knew

would finish quickly. I think

2:08:002:08:05

Elliott must be thinking, goodness

me, that was a huge chance, a great

2:08:052:08:13

opportunity, didn't quite happen.

He

will definitely learn, I don't think

2:08:132:08:17

he did a lot wrong, he got caught up

in the tactical battle in the push

2:08:172:08:21

is shows which zap a bit of your

energy, I've just been told by Mark

2:08:212:08:28

Butler he ran 25.07 for his last 200

metres and that was when he'd

2:08:282:08:32

already conferred a little bit

before them, you can see what that

2:08:322:08:35

means to him, how many times has

been second or third, so to finally

2:08:352:08:39

get that global medal is so

deserved. He's so impressive, the

2:08:392:08:43

way he moved to the front and urged

the pace on. He wasn't willing to go

2:08:432:08:48

and commit to it and when he does

commit, that's when just thrown down

2:08:482:08:52

and they have a split second to

react. At this point Drew Windle had

2:08:522:08:56

not reacted well, he was right up

the inside but he managed to pick up

2:08:562:09:00

and he was running into the back of

the runners in front of him. All he

2:09:002:09:03

did was raise his hand there to

steady himself against Elliot Giles,

2:09:032:09:07

but he had more in his legs and

Elliot used that burst of energy too

2:09:072:09:13

soon and was not able to find any

more in the straight.

Yeah, it was

2:09:132:09:20

at this point here I think Giles was

thinking I've got the bronze medal

2:09:202:09:24

here and Ordonez surprised all of

us. We thought De Arriba, but when

2:09:242:09:29

Windle comes past Elliot has nothing

left. Had he been able, he'd will

2:09:292:09:37

say better than us, but when the

pace really came on he didn't seem

2:09:372:09:41

to have enough endurance almost to

keep going at that fast-paced. He

2:09:412:09:46

ran out of legs a little bit, or he

thought the medal was his. You see

2:09:462:09:50

him holding his head in his hands,

the worst place to come is fourth,

2:09:502:09:55

he's come very close to winning a

medal. That was a huge opportunity.

2:09:552:09:59

If you said to him, by the way, you

just have to beat Ordonez and Drew

2:09:592:10:03

Windle to win a medal he'd have

said, yes, I'll take that, thank you

2:10:032:10:10

very much. Didn't quite happen. The

times are irrelevant in a tactical

2:10:102:10:14

race like that, at a popular gold

medal for Adam Kszczot of Poland,

2:10:142:10:21

Drew Windle, as advised silver medal

for the USA, and indeed also for

2:10:212:10:28

Ordonez, winning a medal for Spain,

who gets it ahead of Elliot Giles.

2:10:282:10:33

Your face as you came

2:10:332:10:34

who gets it ahead of Elliot Giles.

Your face as you came across

2:10:342:10:34

who gets it ahead of Elliot Giles.

Your face as you came across the

2:10:342:10:35

line really said it all. It's

heartbreak.

2:10:352:10:43

heartbreak.

Yeah, you have to deal

with the set of cards you've been

2:10:432:10:45

dealt with and I got caught out a

few times. No excuses, the other

2:10:452:10:50

guys put themselves in better

positions today. I'm gutted, because

2:10:502:10:54

I believe I could have medalled but

it's pointless me saying that

2:10:542:10:57

because I didn't. It's tough.

How do

you feel about your performance? You

2:10:572:11:03

were having to really fight for your

position within that race.

Yeah, it

2:11:032:11:08

was messy. The Spanish guy was

headless, I could tell he would be

2:11:082:11:13

scrappy because of how ready he was

to surge. I thought I'd sit there

2:11:132:11:19

rather than try to go round him. I

don't know what happened but I think

2:11:192:11:23

how was in third going off the last

bend and I don't know, I stood up as

2:11:232:11:27

opposed to leaning forward and saw

someone come straight past me and it

2:11:272:11:32

was just then, it is gut-wrenching

but it's part of the process and if

2:11:322:11:36

you didn't lose some you wouldn't

get to the top one day. Hopefully

2:11:362:11:39

this is part of what is meant to be.

A fantastic attitude. Obviously want

2:11:392:11:43

to come away with a medal but you

are local boy. What has it been like

2:11:432:11:48

being able to come out to a place

you know so well, with these

2:11:482:11:51

incredible crowds, who have probably

gone as well for you than anybody

2:11:512:11:56

this weekend?

I mean, being in front

of a crowd, to be honest, even if I

2:11:562:12:04

did get that bronze medal I'd feel

sad because you are still not

2:12:042:12:07

winning, are you, but it would have

been nice to have won just for my

2:12:072:12:11

home crowd. I'll have to wait until

the Commonwealth is now to get my

2:12:112:12:15

next shot and that's 2022, I think,

so I've got a long wait before I get

2:12:152:12:21

to see the crowd, so hopefully round

two and go again.

Commiserations,

2:12:212:12:27

thank you for speaking to me and

what a wonderful attitude you have.

2:12:272:12:30

Pleasure.

2:12:302:12:34

what a wonderful attitude you have.

Pleasure.

2:12:342:12:35

COMMENTATOR:

Back to the pole vault, Eliza

2:12:352:12:37

McCartney of New Zealand, already

has that national record, the bar

2:12:372:12:43

has been raised to 4.75 metres. This

will be a new lifetime best if she

2:12:432:12:49

can get it. She does. That's a

magical jump, considering her

2:12:492:12:55

preparation has been, well, less

than perfect. First-time clearance

2:12:552:13:01

and the first athlete to go clear

and McCartney goes into the lead as

2:13:012:13:08

we get to the sort of heights where

medals are going to be contested.

2:13:082:13:13

Six athletes still remain, Newman of

Canada, McCartney we've seen go

2:13:132:13:17

clear, Morris, a Katerina Stefanidi,

Anzhelika Sidorova and the pole

2:13:172:13:26

vault is hotting up.

2:13:262:13:33

vault is hotting up. We see Sandi

Morris, who has been good apart from

2:13:332:13:35

one glitch at the previous height.

Her first try, it's superb. She'd be

2:13:352:13:41

looking so impressive will stop in

all of the Heights, just that tiny

2:13:412:13:45

glitch that may count of course,

when it comes to sorting out the

2:13:452:13:50

medals. But that now goes into the

lead. Determination etched on her

2:13:502:13:56

face there, drives up hard and high.

A really good clearance, 4.75

2:13:562:14:01

metres, and the 20 centimetres over

that, takes you into, well, world

2:14:012:14:06

beating territory.

2:14:062:14:11

beating territory. So a Katerina

Stefanidi after that long wait

2:14:122:14:16

cleared at 4.70, the previous

height, but has made a mess of that.

2:14:162:14:24

That's unusual for her. She's

usually so consistent. That's a

2:14:242:14:32

secret weapon. She's only ranked

fourth in the world but a foul at

2:14:322:14:38

4.75, questions being asked of the

Olympic and world champion.

2:14:382:14:44

GABBY LOGAN:

Coming up to 1000 metres, the final

2:14:442:14:47

event of the men's heptathlon and

Kevin Mayer in the lead from Damian

2:14:472:14:53

Warner and there's just three

seconds in terms of points between

2:14:532:14:57

them in the 1000 metres. They have

almost identical PBs as well and the

2:14:572:15:02

reason it's so tight is because,

well, Damian Warner had an

2:15:022:15:07

absolutely fantastic pole vault, for

him, and here he is, Denise, about

2:15:072:15:12

to clear 4.90. This is above perhaps

what he would have expected.

It was

2:15:122:15:18

way more than he would have expected

we would have expected. We don't

2:15:182:15:21

know how well his training has been

going, but what a clearance. This

2:15:212:15:24

was possibly one of his weaker

events in this two Day competition

2:15:242:15:31

and...

Couple that with a man who is

a fantastic pole vault, Kevin Mayer,

2:15:312:15:35

having a bit of a shocker.

Absolute

shocker. He passed the next heights,

2:15:352:15:42

so this clearance, or failure was a

shock, a real shock. You know, he's

2:15:422:15:49

such a competent and confident pole

vault. You can see how much that

2:15:492:15:55

means to him.

But it is that a

fantastic finale because it's the

2:15:552:15:58

two of them going for it in terms of

a race with each other, because it's

2:15:582:16:03

almost the winner takes the spoil.

Gilbert men absolutely, we said it

2:16:032:16:07

will be a thrilling heptathlon and

it has played out that way. Let's go

2:16:072:16:11

back out to the women's pole vault

because a Katerina Stefanidi, the

2:16:112:16:16

world, Olympic, European indoor

champion just had a failure at 4.75.

2:16:162:16:20

She will go again, Steve Backley.

2:16:202:16:27

She is unbeaten for a year and has

been dominant in this event. The

2:16:272:16:33

secret is consistency and timing of

her jumps. Needs this and a second

2:16:332:16:40

chance at 4.70 five. Better.

That is

better. Sidorova gets into a rhythm

2:16:402:16:47

baguettes the

2:16:472:16:52

baguettes the poll out early and

over. She won't get a chance again

2:16:522:16:56

until the bar goes up to four metres

80. That is the next height.

2:16:562:17:03

Stefanidi, a Chellini clearance at

the second time of asking. -- a

2:17:032:17:11

clean clearance. So, Stefanidi, as

we stand, in the bronze medal. The

2:17:112:17:16

next height is 4.80.

We will keep

abreast of everything that is

2:17:162:17:25

happening in the pole vault. Now for

the final event in the heptathlon.

2:17:252:17:30

1000 metres ahead of the and that is

all up full grabs for the bronze

2:17:302:17:36

medal. Only 1.5 seconds separating

two competitors. The gap of 30 four

2:17:362:17:48

points between Damian Warner and

Kevin Mayer.

2:17:482:17:57

Kevin Mayer. 2.37 or thereabouts. We

only have nine left standing.

2:17:572:18:02

Dolezal is in ninth place. Ruben

Gado.

2:18:022:18:16

Gado. Dominik Distelberger will be

the next one out. I think the key is

2:18:162:18:21

going to be, I am always interested

in the decathlon when pacing

2:18:212:18:28

yourself in a way that is against

the clock a little bit because that

2:18:282:18:33

is based on the sort of times that

you know you normally run also being

2:18:332:18:37

aware of what your competitors are

trying to do. Kevin Mayer needs to

2:18:372:18:42

keep Damian Warner in his sights, I

guess. Three seconds doesn't sound a

2:18:422:18:46

lot but it is quite a lot over a

thousand metres. Uibo has had a

2:18:462:18:53

brilliant competition.

2:18:532:19:02

brilliant competition. Kazmirek was

ten centimetres less and closed the

2:19:022:19:04

gap to 13 points. Here we go. Damian

Warner, Commonwealth champion back

2:19:042:19:12

in 2014, of course. Let's not forget

that in this commonwealth year. The

2:19:122:19:19

world champion, Olympic

silver-medallist, giving himself a

2:19:192:19:21

bit of a concern after that were

pole vault. Indoors, it is five laps

2:19:212:19:29

of the track. I am looking Steve and

Tony in theirs. If you have to make

2:19:292:19:40

up three seconds in a thousand

metres, and you are not used to

2:19:402:19:46

doing this all that often, if you

know what I mean, what to think

2:19:462:19:49

Warner will try to do, if anything?

I think it will be a steady pace.

I

2:19:492:20:00

was speaking to Michael Smith, the

current coach for the Canadian

2:20:002:20:05

Bridge David only needs to run 2.42

to break. They've worked this way to

2:20:052:20:12

get close to Kevin Mayer. The last

time he ran was around 2.40 one.

2:20:122:20:17

We're not sure how good he is, even

though they have equal PB is. It was

2:20:172:20:22

a couple of years ago that Kevin ran

his PB. He will slowly turn the

2:20:222:20:30

screw lap by lap.

Here we go in the

final event, the thousand metres, in

2:20:302:20:36

the pentathlon. David Warner needs

to somehow find a way to put

2:20:362:20:41

pressure on the Frenchman, who has

slotted into second place behind

2:20:412:20:46

Sintnicolaas. Kazmirek, the other

two we are watching. The difference

2:20:462:20:54

is not much full that they are quite

well matched if you look at personal

2:20:542:20:58

bests. It is about how you feel on

the day. Warner will be thinking he

2:20:582:21:07

has too forced the issue a little

bit.

The race is on. Fascinating

2:21:072:21:13

watching. Warner knows he have to

stretch out there. He has something

2:21:132:21:19

to work off but does he had the

ability? Warner is a better runner

2:21:192:21:27

than me. Look at the gap opening up!

Three seconds has to be the

2:21:272:21:33

difference for the Canadian to

overhaul the French athlete. May I

2:21:332:21:39

cannot let him get much further

ahead. Warner is picking up the pace

2:21:392:21:44

was that it is really stretching out

a couple of seconds. -- up the pace

2:21:442:21:53

Dash it is really stretching out a

couple of seconds. The pace would

2:21:532:21:58

get him into the 2.37 Web 2.0 38.

You're probably think that is what

2:21:582:22:02

he needs to do and hope that cannot

run 2.40, 2.40 one. My worry is that

2:22:022:22:11

he is going quick in the middle. He

really has to build the pace. He is

2:22:112:22:18

not going to break me. He is doing a

good job and Uibo is helping him.

2:22:182:22:26

Getting close now on Damian Warner,

who may have gone too quick, too

2:22:262:22:34

early.

It is so difficult to be the

man out in front. Very good to see

2:22:342:22:39

where Warner can find the extra

second and a half from that final

2:22:392:22:45

lap. Looks like he will do enough

here in the final hundred metres.

2:22:452:22:51

Warner has just found a little bit

extra and starts to kick away as

2:22:512:22:55

Meier starts to tire. They are all

starting to kick hard. It will be a

2:22:552:23:02

couple of seconds. Will it be three?

Damian Warner has found something

2:23:022:23:06

extra. Watch the clock! That is one,

two, three. It will be very tight.

2:23:062:23:17

Kazmirek has lost the bronze medal.

We don't will get that. Who has won

2:23:172:23:23

the gold medal? What a performance

from Warner?! He slowed and then

2:23:232:23:30

picked up again when he realised he

had a little bit left. You have to

2:23:302:23:35

be careful about how they do the

rankings. That time for Warner has

2:23:352:23:40

just gone up. It is gold medal to

Kevin Mayer by five points. Meier

2:23:402:23:45

has won it. The thousand 348 points.

That is the equivalent of a couple

2:23:452:23:54

of intents a second. -- tenths of a

second. He threw himself at the line

2:23:542:24:08

and had nothing left to give. There

is the bronze-medallist. You have to

2:24:082:24:14

hand it to the silver-medallist,

Damian Warner, for having a crack at

2:24:142:24:21

it.

If the women's pentathlon was

clear-cut in the order did not

2:24:212:24:25

change in the final event, that is

an extraordinary race. Talking of

2:24:252:24:31

the lactic build-up for these

athletes who have been competing so

2:24:312:24:34

hard... Coming here Warner found a

bit more running in his legs towards

2:24:342:24:42

the end. To lose by five points is

cruel. Have a look at me as he comes

2:24:422:24:48

down the final 30 metres or so. This

lactic build-up he has, he was

2:24:482:24:54

fading, wading through a snow drift

towards the end. Warner is still

2:24:542:24:59

full of running belatedly speaking.

Watch me in fourth place. --

2:24:592:25:07

relatively speaking. It comes down

to five points overall. Warner has

2:25:072:25:12

nothing more to give but look at

Kevin Mayer and the effort required,

2:25:122:25:17

because of the pole vault, to help

himself at the line will stop

2:25:172:25:22

ultimately, to take gold. -- at the

line and ultimately to take gold. We

2:25:222:25:33

will know shortly that he has the

gold medal and how close it was.

2:25:332:25:38

Warner thought he might have done

enough. It has been a great

2:25:382:25:43

championship for Warner. He really

has delivered. Meier was at bit

2:25:432:25:50

below his best. He did enough, just

enough will stop

In the end, the gap

2:25:502:26:00

between the two of them was two and

a half seconds. There is the result

2:26:002:26:07

of the 1000 metres. Kevin Mayer in

fourth place doing enough to hang

2:26:072:26:16

on. We vote taking the bronze with a

superb run. -- Uibo taking the

2:26:162:26:26

bronze.

2:26:262:26:28

Damian Warner was so close with a

new record for him.

2:26:302:26:40

new record for him. Uibo, a record

for him as well with 6205.

Back to

2:26:402:26:49

the women's pole vault. Sidorova

chose to pass at the previous

2:26:492:26:55

height. 480 and the first attempt.

Gets it. That is a brilliant

2:26:552:27:08

clearance for Sidorova, the neutral

athlete. The first athlete we have

2:27:082:27:14

seen broke clear at this height. She

seems pretty relaxed about it. Maybe

2:27:142:27:20

more to come. Stefanidi and Morris

were good at the previous height.

2:27:202:27:31

The jumps are starting to count as

we turn our attention to the triple

2:27:312:27:35

jump. DOS Santos is the leader. He

only started competing at the end of

2:27:352:27:44

last year and has improved ever

since. He used to have high jump.

2:27:442:27:48

First round of the triple jump. He

is still learning the event. So many

2:27:482:27:58

people are talking about his

potential. It is enormous and he

2:27:582:28:02

improves every time he jumps. He has

long levers, it used to good effect.

2:28:022:28:12

Chasing the lead. 17.22 takes the

lead.

2:28:122:28:25

lead.

Well we are going to show you

a new result for the 800 metres for

2:28:252:28:31

men with Elliott Giles in the bronze

medal position. The reason for that

2:28:312:28:38

is the American has been

disqualified. Drew Windle was on the

2:28:382:28:47

inside. I think it might have been

on the last bend. I am not sure it

2:28:472:28:54

is here. Elliott Giles is as much to

blame for that. I mentioned that in

2:28:542:29:03

commentary at the time that he was

hanging onto the pants of an athlete

2:29:032:29:08

but you have to obstruct an athlete.

There was a time when... I know he

2:29:082:29:16

pulls that shirt. That is not an

obstruction. He is pulling his

2:29:162:29:25

shirt. He has been disqualified for

jostling and obstruction. I think

2:29:252:29:33

that is a bit harsh on Drew Windle.

I know it gives the bronze medal to

2:29:332:29:39

Elliott Giles. This is more relevant

to me. No, the guy on Ian Sadler is

2:29:392:29:45

trying to force him into a position

that was not there. -- on the

2:29:452:29:49

inside. Smiley was trying to come

through on the inside when there was

2:29:492:29:55

not room to do that. There was also

another incident on the last bend.

2:29:552:30:01

We will try to work out what that

was for and whether or not that will

2:30:012:30:05

stand. At the moment, Elliott Giles

has the bronze medal.

2:30:052:30:11

GABBY LOGAN:

Extraordinary scenes, as you know,

2:30:112:30:16

our studio is whether podiums are.

We heard this news a few minutes

2:30:162:30:21

ago, that Windle would be

disqualified and then we saw Windle

2:30:212:30:24

walk up with the other two athletes,

no Elliot Giles, so we figured

2:30:242:30:29

perhaps this wasn't happening at the

knees and Michael, then

2:30:292:30:32

extraordinary beyond belief, Elliot

Giles walks up behind him so we

2:30:322:30:35

currently have four athletes to our

right-hand side is waiting for a

2:30:352:30:39

medal ceremony. We haven't seen Drew

Windle leave, we have seized the --

2:30:392:30:43

we have seen the evidence, if you

like, that Steve Cram was talking

2:30:432:30:47

about there. What do you make of it?

2:30:472:30:49

like, that Steve Cram was talking

about there. What do you make of it?

2:30:492:30:51

The behaviour is very odd, I would

imagine the US team is trying to

2:30:512:30:56

make the case for why Drew Windle

pulled the other athlete's jersey,

2:30:562:31:00

maybe he had a legitimate reason for

it, maybe they are trying to make up

2:31:002:31:04

and manufacture a legitimate reason

for it but on the surface it seems

2:31:042:31:08

not very sportsmanlike and it could

affect that runner's progress and

2:31:082:31:13

stride, so that would be impeding

that athletes, and he would deserve

2:31:132:31:17

to be disqualified based on what it

looks like.

One of our crew here has

2:31:172:31:22

just been unspoken and Elliot Giles

and he said, right now, he has no

2:31:222:31:26

idea what's going on. He doesn't

know what's happening, he is as

2:31:262:31:29

confused as the rest of us.

Would

will he have seen that piece of

2:31:292:31:34

footage? He probably hasn't. I think

Michael is right, there is some sort

2:31:342:31:39

of counterprotest going in.

He

hasn't been told that he's going to

2:31:392:31:43

be gifting a medal, so obviously I

think we can surmise the American

2:31:432:31:47

team are putting in a counter

complaint.

Right, he's probably been

2:31:472:31:51

told there's a protest otherwise,

he's being, someone is under

2:31:512:31:58

investigation and they are sorting

out now and they hope to have it

2:31:582:32:01

sorted before the actual ceremony

and that's probably what is

2:32:012:32:04

happening.

OK, we will bring you

news when we have news. The pole

2:32:042:32:09

vault hopefully

2:32:092:32:10

news when we have news. The pole

vault hopefully is a bit more

2:32:102:32:11

straightforward, Steve?

I wouldn't

count on it, it gets complicated

2:32:112:32:14

with these fouls and clearances but

we know one thing, Anzhelika

2:32:142:32:18

Sidorova, the neutral athlete, is

that Nick lead. She's the only

2:32:182:32:23

athlete to have gone clear at 4.80

metres. Stefanidi of Greece is

2:32:232:32:28

capable of joining her, a second

chance to get this height. 4.80,

2:32:282:32:33

it's too much. As we said earlier

she's never, well, she hasn't lost

2:32:332:32:40

in over a year now, Stefanidi, the

Olympic champion from Rio, the world

2:32:402:32:46

champion from London last summer,

outdoors.

2:32:462:32:52

outdoors. Right then, we are into

the third attempt now of this height

2:32:532:32:58

of 4.80, Eliza McCartney of New

Zealand. To stay involved. She came

2:32:582:33:04

down on that, had the height, didn't

have the penetration through, and

2:33:042:33:09

McCartney, well, currently in the

bronze medal position because of her

2:33:092:33:15

first time clearance of 4.75, the

previous height, and national

2:33:152:33:21

record, continental record.

McCartney, bronze in Rio, may have

2:33:212:33:28

another global bronze here. But

there's a couple of athletes who can

2:33:282:33:34

deprive her of that medal. There's

nothing else she can do, she is out,

2:33:342:33:39

three fouls, her work is done. A

great performance. A from the coach

2:33:392:33:46

but Sandi Morris has an attempt, the

two Americans both have one more

2:33:462:33:52

chance, and of course Stefanidi as

well. Stefanidi the background,

2:33:522:33:55

there's Sandi Morris in the

foreground, will be the next

2:33:552:34:00

athlete. It's been a really tough

competition for the pole vault is.

2:34:002:34:04

Real stop start, the cone comes out,

the bar is re-raised, with all the

2:34:042:34:12

sprinting going on it's been very

disruptive. The athletes have been

2:34:122:34:16

ready to go, then they've been asked

to pause and weight, so a lot of

2:34:162:34:20

patience and composure needed. Once

again, Sandi Morris, they are used

2:34:202:34:25

to that, by the way. That is part

and parcel of world-class pole

2:34:252:34:27

vaulting. Sandi Morris, two fouls at

4.80, height she has cleared

2:34:272:34:37

comfortably this year. 4.90 is her

season's vest, 4.95 her lifetime

2:34:372:34:46

best, so she knows she is capable.

She has to commit to this 100%.

2:34:462:34:55

Morris, for a medal, she's in second

anyway. And gets it! Sandi Morris

2:34:552:35:04

has produced a beautiful job. She

may have hurt her right elbow, I

2:35:042:35:08

think will stop she's been the best

so far and has produced something

2:35:082:35:13

really special there.

I think so, a

super job, composed herself really

2:35:132:35:19

well in her mind. A little kick from

the poll, I think. As the poll

2:35:192:35:26

unwinds, it kicks back and hits you

in the forearm. She will be used to

2:35:262:35:30

those kind of stingers.

2:35:302:35:37

Oh, yeah, just ouch, ouch, I think

we will favour. The

yeah, caught her

2:35:372:35:45

elbow on the top of the pole on the

way down. I hope she's OK to

2:35:452:35:52

continue, because she's clear. She's

in second place, third time

2:35:522:35:57

clearance for Morris, first time for

sift -- -- for Sidorova. Stefanidi,

2:35:572:36:04

last chance, she gets it as well!

The Katerina Stefanidi, such a

2:36:042:36:12

brilliant jumper and proves her

brilliance once again!

I think she

2:36:122:36:17

was a little lucky, I'm not sure she

planted well, it was kind of a

2:36:172:36:21

double hit. The pole went in and

moved across. There was a little

2:36:212:36:26

judder but she managed to ride

through it and get up and over the

2:36:262:36:29

bar. I think she realises she might

have been a bit fortunate there.

She

2:36:292:36:34

has looked tense throughout this

competition. A question of how she

2:36:342:36:39

is handling the pressure, the

fielding pressure, the expectation,

2:36:392:36:42

we know she is used to that and it

builds on that unbeaten record of 18

2:36:422:36:48

or 19 competition is now under

year's worth of them is building and

2:36:482:36:52

she is the target. It is well and

truly placed on her back. Sidorova,

2:36:522:36:58

the neutral athlete, the only

athlete with a clean card, is in

2:36:582:37:01

front and Morris and Stefanidi, the

American and Greek jumpers, share

2:37:012:37:06

second place and that knocks

McCartney eyed amazingly out of the

2:37:062:37:09

medals.

Is no bronze medal, there's

two Silvers but the bar will go up,

2:37:092:37:16

4.85. Time to reset and go again. It

is a height these ladies are capable

2:37:162:37:23

of.

It isn't over yet. 4.85, the

next height. There it is, being

2:37:232:37:33

raised. On the opposite side,

parallel to that pole vault runway

2:37:332:37:37

as the triple jump, Nelson Evora.

17.14 metres in the first round. Dos

2:37:372:37:50

Santos of Brazil leading. This is

big, that was a lovely jump, held

2:37:502:37:55

his speed through the phases

beautifully. Ten years since he took

2:37:552:37:58

gold in the Olympics. Let's have a

look at this.

Look at how active he

2:37:582:38:09

is on the floor, reaches, poles, as

a sideways glance at the scoreboard

2:38:092:38:13

and decides where he wants to land.

Brilliant.

17.2 to the lead, its

2:38:132:38:21

17.40, he goes into the lead.

STEVE CRAM:

2:38:212:38:31

Zoey Clark are introduced to the

cloud ahead of the women's 400

2:38:312:38:34

metres final.

2:38:342:38:39

metres final. Into the arena, Eilidh

Doyle. A chance of a medal here, I

2:38:392:38:46

think the Americans that are about

to be introduced might control this

2:38:462:38:50

final. Shakima Wimbley, gold in the

four by four in London last year,

2:38:502:38:58

had a great battle with this woman,

Courtney Okolo in the United States

2:38:582:39:04

championships. It was decided by

100th of a second and Okolo took it,

2:39:042:39:11

Wimbley second and those two may the

women to beat here. I'm sure if they

2:39:112:39:15

have their own private show they

will be close behind them. You look

2:39:152:39:19

at Eilidh Doyle and Justyna

Swiety-Ersetic. Jenkins of Jamaica

2:39:192:39:25

on the inside.

2:39:252:39:30

on the inside. Again, in the women's

400, not quite as bad as it was on

2:39:312:39:35

the mend's 400, but to an extent

dominated by disqualifications.

2:39:352:39:42

MacPherson in the semifinal went

out, which lets Zoey Clark in and

2:39:422:39:46

Lee Springer -- Lea Sprunger, who

was going so well, was disqualified.

2:39:462:39:54

An opportunity now for Clark, who

thought it was about the

2:39:542:40:01

Commonwealth Games this year and

here she is in the world indoor

2:40:012:40:04

final and for Doyle to take her

first individual medal on the world

2:40:042:40:08

stage. But Courtney Okolo and

Shakima Wimbley are the two to beat,

2:40:082:40:15

the Americans, in the outside lanes.

The final of the women's 400 metres.

2:40:152:40:29

Eilidh Doyle able to target and try

and work off the Americans outside.

2:40:322:40:37

Shakima Wimbley and Courtney Act

Coro are so strong. -- Courtney

2:40:372:40:44

Okolo. Wimbley looking for the lead

at the break, Doyle has gone out

2:40:442:40:48

strongly, so too has Zoey Clark.

Justyna Swiety-Ersetic, the Polish

2:40:482:40:53

athlete, is waiting. Doyle is

jostling with Wimbley at the moment.

2:40:532:41:00

Doyle in between the two Americans,

Wimbley, in the pink hairband will

2:41:002:41:06

come again. Clark in fourth place.

There is the roar from the cloud.

2:41:062:41:11

Trying to hold on, Wimbley, has she

got anything left? Doyle is in the

2:41:112:41:17

silver medal position, Wimbley on

her shoulder. Wembley comes through

2:41:172:41:22

for silver, bronze to Eilidh Doyle

just ahead of Justyna

2:41:222:41:26

Swiety-Ersetic, so there's a medal

for Eilidh Doyle but Courtney Okolo,

2:41:262:41:29

we thought it might be a close

battle but not so, Courtney Okolo a

2:41:292:41:34

long way clear. She has the gold

medal. Eilidh Doyle has bronze in

2:41:342:41:39

the world indoors, behind Shakima

Wimbley. American one - two, close

2:41:392:41:48

to silver for Eilidh Doyle but

bronze will eventually be

2:41:482:41:51

celebrated, celebrated by Doyle,

because that is some achievement. It

2:41:512:41:54

was always going to be about the two

Americans but in the end about one,

2:41:542:41:58

Courtney Okolo.

2:41:582:42:04

Courtney Okolo. Eilidh Doyle won

that medal by being aggressive after

2:42:042:42:07

the first 200 metres, getting a

place on the inside, holding off

2:42:072:42:11

Wimbley and being strong, so strong,

and she so deserved that. Again,

2:42:112:42:17

there are medals that are given a

championships and then there are

2:42:172:42:19

ones that are received not only by

the athlete but received really well

2:42:192:42:23

everybody else as well but not in

Eilidh Doyle to win an individual

2:42:232:42:28

medal at these championships is

superb. There it is, right now, had

2:42:282:42:33

she lost out she would have had to

check out, come background but she

2:42:332:42:37

holds it there. She will come under

pressure later run and she knows

2:42:372:42:40

that but she stays strong. She

pushes on once more, makes Wimbley

2:42:402:42:44

have to wait and be patient. Wimbley

has nothing else and has to come

2:42:442:42:49

again. Now Eilidh Doyle had to hang

in, hang in, hang in, hold on for

2:42:492:42:54

the medal. It's there, a brilliant

performance from Eilidh

2:42:542:42:59

the medal. It's there, a brilliant

performance from Eilidh. I'm so

2:42:592:43:01

pleased for her. Some athletes don't

seize an opportunity, it was an

2:43:012:43:06

opportunity admittedly given to her

by others not performing and making

2:43:062:43:08

it to the final but once she was in,

boy, she grabbed the opportunity.

2:43:082:43:12

She grabbed the opportunity. We

believe is a great talent, 22 years

2:43:122:43:19

old and was always going to threaten

to come past and take the silver, as

2:43:192:43:23

she did but Doyle, at the break, at

the bell, at the 200-metre mark, you

2:43:232:43:27

saw her keeping her line, holding

off Wimbley and making Wimbley

2:43:272:43:32

worked very hard for the silver

medal. Courtney Okolo, a personal

2:43:322:43:36

best, just behind the quickest time

of another American who is not here

2:43:362:43:42

but Okolo and Wimbley, and for alien

model -- for Eilidh Doyle, a bronze

2:43:422:43:49

medal.

Back to this triple jump

final, a great atmosphere here in

2:43:492:43:59

Birmingham. A bit of a lacklustre

first half of the competition, his

2:43:592:44:05

best so far in sixth place,

silver-medallist at the Olympics,

2:44:052:44:13

Will Claye. He knows it, that's much

better. Let's have a look at this,

2:44:132:44:17

Will Claye. Because the lead is

7.40, Nelson Evora, we saw that a

2:44:172:44:28

few moments ago. A really slow

start. A lot of the athletes taking

2:44:282:44:32

their time to feel their way into

the competition.

That was great

2:44:322:44:36

speed into the board and he carried

it, stood the board, was leaning

2:44:362:44:40

back. Right on top of his foot,

drove himself flat down the triple

2:44:402:44:44

jump runway and into the pit.

Its

17.43, Will Claye takes the lead.

2:44:442:44:52

Where did that come from?

All from

the running, all from the speed he

2:44:522:44:56

generated on the runway, loads of

speed which you can convert into a

2:44:562:45:00

great hop, a great active is that I

kept it going into the sandpit.

Back

2:45:002:45:05

to the pole vault. Anzhelika

Sidorova, 4.85, gets it! Oh my

2:45:052:45:14

goodness, that has got to be a gold

medal winning jump! It's not

2:45:142:45:18

confirmed, but we've seen Sandi

Morris and Katerina Stefanidi foul.

2:45:182:45:24

The first chance, first-time

clearances, right across the board.

2:45:242:45:32

Perfect jumping.

2:45:322:45:37

She looks to be on form. That could

easily go to 4.90. She is looking

2:45:392:45:49

unbeatable at the moment. Morris has

been jumping really nicely, capable

2:45:492:45:54

certainly going clear. But the first

clearance is very significant

2:45:542:46:00

because the other athletes will have

to jump higher to go ahead of

2:46:002:46:07

Sidorova, twice European champion

indoors and out. So, athletes can

2:46:072:46:14

choose to pass. I think Morris is

doing a bit of a strategic

2:46:142:46:18

assessment.

That is interesting,

shaking the hand of your opposition.

2:46:182:46:27

She might have been passing that she

gave her opposition well done and

2:46:272:46:32

prepared herself. That is the spray

they put on top of the pole to give

2:46:322:46:38

them some extra tacky so they can

hold on to the pole.

Morris in your

2:46:382:46:46

shot is in second place, joint with

Stefanidi, who has fouled. We know

2:46:462:46:52

the three medals but we do not know

where they are going. Morris has

2:46:522:46:56

chosen to pass, as we expected. A

real cat and mouse now.

You have got

2:46:562:47:05

silver, pretty much guaranteed.

Stefanidi files in this height...

2:47:052:47:10

That is the tactic. Can you outjump

Sidorova and go to 90 which Sidorova

2:47:102:47:16

has not done this year but Morris

has? It is cat and mouse. Gets to be

2:47:162:47:24

a bit of a chess game in the end.

A

new

2:47:242:47:32

new height of 4.90. Looks like

Morris will be the first athlete to

2:47:322:47:35

attempt the height. If you get it,

you have a really good chance of

2:47:352:47:43

getting gold.

Sidorova will get

three chances but the other two

2:47:432:47:53

girls will only get two. Back

carried, that bowel.

2:47:532:48:06

carried, that bowel. Three

consecutive fouls. -- that carried,

2:48:062:48:09

that foul. Three silvers in global

competition, including this one, and

2:48:092:48:23

the Olympics, and the outdoor World

Championships. Often referred to as

2:48:232:48:29

the bridesmaid. A bit unfair because

she has produced brilliant jumps

2:48:292:48:33

when it matters time and again but

never quite got on the top spot. And

2:48:332:48:39

she do it this time around? Morris

of the United States. The first

2:48:392:48:44

athlete to attempt this new height.

She has come down on that.

That was

2:48:442:48:53

absolutely great. She pulled down on

the pole for me a little bit and

2:48:532:48:57

that forced her to go straight up

and not penetrate in. You can move

2:48:572:49:04

the upright. That top and pulling

like a lever, you get a bit more

2:49:042:49:09

bend and it takes longer to uncoil

but its sacrifices the momentum

2:49:092:49:14

forwards into the bed and that puts

the bar in the wrong place.

I liked

2:49:142:49:18

the look on her face. It is not look

of disappointment but of optimism.

2:49:182:49:24

She knows she is capable of getting

that.

A nod from her coach. She has

2:49:242:49:32

done this before. She has a personal

best of 4.95 and she has cleared

2:49:322:49:42

4.90 this year. She must be

confident and go for it.

Stefanidi

2:49:422:49:49

in exactly the same position as

Morris, carrying that foul from the

2:49:492:49:52

previous height. This is the only

title she has never won. This, to

2:49:522:50:02

complete the set. And, I said

earlier that she tends to produce it

2:50:022:50:10

when it matters. What an

understatement but that time is now.

2:50:102:50:17

Stefanidi with a really good chance

of taking gold issue goes clear at

2:50:172:50:20

this attempt. 4.90, first time of

asking. No comments did not like it.

2:50:202:50:30

She has not looked her consistent

self. She had a cold last weekend

2:50:302:50:39

and looked a little out of sorts and

was under pressure but responded

2:50:392:50:42

well. She does not look on top of

her game this evening.

Not really. I

2:50:422:50:48

would have to agree with that. And

it is not going well, she has the

2:50:482:50:55

stand set at 18, which means the bar

is as far back as it would go at 80

2:50:552:51:00

centimetres. Again, that means the

polls she is using is a bit soft.

2:51:002:51:10

polls she is using is a bit soft. --

pole.

2:51:102:51:16

pole. Next the 400 metres final for

men. The United States with a couple

2:51:162:51:20

of athletes but I am not sure they

will be heading for a one, two in

2:51:202:51:27

this one.

2:51:272:51:36

this one.

The Trinidad and Tobago

athlete, Deon Lendore. Aldrich

2:51:362:51:46

Bailey Junior took second in the US

Championships, running in that the

2:51:462:51:50

race. The Americans had many, many

high-quality athletes in this event.

2:51:502:51:57

Michael Cherry, the US champion. He

and Bailey Junior are somewhat damn

2:51:572:52:03

the rankings in terms of time this

year. -- down the rankings. Mass

2:52:032:52:12

lack is only half a second off the

time that brought him the world

2:52:122:52:16

record.

2:52:162:52:21

record. -- Maslak. Santos got the

silver medal at London. He might be

2:52:222:52:27

the man to beat, Oscar Husillos.

2:52:272:52:38

the man to beat, Oscar Husillos. A

good evening for Spain so far. They

2:52:382:52:43

took silver in the 800 metres. The

ever-changing 800 metres. Much

2:52:432:52:51

attention focused on Maslak as he

goes for a hat-trick of world indoor

2:52:512:52:55

title. Can he find that form? He

improved from the first round where

2:52:552:53:00

he got it slightly wrong. He was

better in the semifinal and went out

2:53:002:53:05

harder but Husillos in lane six has

been running so, so strongly. He cut

2:53:052:53:11

his Spanish indoor record yesterday.

What can Michael Cherry do in lane

2:53:112:53:19

three, the US champion? Bailey

inside him, the two Americans going

2:53:192:53:23

in two and three outside. Lendl and

Maslak goes in four.

2:53:232:53:37

Maslak goes in four. The men's

hundred metres. Look at Maslak in

2:53:372:53:45

lane four! Already alongside Santos.

I am sure that Michael Cherry has

2:53:452:53:52

hit the line. Is he racing for

nothing at all us something better

2:53:522:53:55

than that? Now staring down at the

cones as they break. Husillos from

2:53:552:54:06

Santos and then Maslak and Ben

Cherry. Santos trying to chase him

2:54:062:54:12

down. Michael Cherry alongside. A

long way clear and looking for

2:54:122:54:17

Spanish gold in the 400 metres.

Santos is not going to get there, or

2:54:172:54:24

is he? Husillos holds on with Santos

in second and Maslak inferred.

2:54:242:54:33

44.93, a championship record. He

gets quicker and quicker. From first

2:54:332:54:38

round to semifinal and final now.

What a way to win gold and red gold

2:54:382:54:42

at the world indoors for Spain and

Oscar Husillos, he was the man to

2:54:422:54:47

beat. The Spanish fans celebrate for

the gold for Oscar Husillos. In fact

2:54:472:54:55

it is a European record as well. It

was long held by the great German

2:54:552:55:01

athlete going back to 1988 and

Husillos has taken that as well.

2:55:012:55:07

Championship record, European

record, gold medal in the Spanish

2:55:072:55:10

flags can at last.

2:55:102:55:16

flags can at last. Maslak and Santos

were in the bronze medal position.

2:55:162:55:21

Cherry from the United States might

be disqualified in any case. You

2:55:212:55:28

were watching in an earlier round

and you said this man looks good and

2:55:282:55:32

didn't heed tonight?!

We were

chatting thing who we thought would

2:55:322:55:41

win and I thought Husillos would be

the boy. He had the pace to attack

2:55:412:55:47

the first 200 without overextending.

Now he has done it in new territory,

2:55:472:55:52

to be honest. This is a superb

display of how to run indoor 400

2:55:522:55:57

metre running. He stayed strong on

the last lap. Only in the last ten

2:55:572:56:03

did his legs start to buckle. What a

return to form by Santos. They have

2:56:032:56:10

to hand it to Husillos. That is a

world shattering performance to run

2:56:102:56:16

sub 45 seconds. Absolutely superb.

Gold for Spain.

2:56:162:56:23

Gold for Spain.

Morris, a second

chance to go clear at this new

2:56:252:56:29

height. No one yet has got it.

Morrison silver medal position. She

2:56:292:56:33

has been I her elbow. --

2:56:332:56:42

has been I her elbow. -- icing her

elbow. Morris of the United

2:56:422:56:50

elbow. Morris of the United States,

4.90. She gets it. Possibly a gold

2:56:502:56:54

winning medal jump. A beautiful

jump. Morris... Two athletes remain.

2:56:542:57:03

For now though, cheered out in

front. -- she is out in front.

2:57:032:57:14

Choosing to pass at 4.85, 4.90 is

equal to the championship record and

2:57:142:57:25

puts her in the gold medal spot.

For

now. We still have Sidorova.

2:57:252:57:40

Stefanidi also still to take her

last attempt. Remember she carried

2:57:402:57:47

that foul, so that was the last

chance. Stefanidi, to match that

2:57:472:57:51

jump.

That was close, so close.

Stefanidi bowels out with a bronze

2:57:512:58:01

medal. --

2:58:012:58:08

medal. -- bows out. She has to

settle for bronze. At the moment, it

2:58:082:58:17

is Morris who has gone into the gold

medal position and Sidorova, who has

2:58:172:58:24

looked very cool, calm and collected

at all of the heights so far. Just

2:58:242:58:32

that one foul, or failure, at this

height.

If she clears 4.90, she goes

2:58:322:58:41

back into first place because she is

on one foul against her name

2:58:412:58:46

compared with Morris, who has six

fouls, I think.

Total fouls at the

2:58:462:58:53

current height. The present height

is 4.90.

Five fouls in fact.

2:58:532:59:01

Apologies. So, Sidorova to go back

into the lead. Silence around the

2:59:012:59:10

stadium. That was a good effort. It

is the second failure. She is not

2:59:102:59:18

out yet because, as Tony pointed out

little while ago, she did have a

2:59:182:59:23

clearance at the previous height.

So, that is two fouls. She may pass

2:59:232:59:29

because she needs more to go back

ahead of Morris.

I think if she

2:59:292:59:34

clears 4.90, she goes back into the

lead. So, she has one more.

Bextor

2:59:342:59:41

show you the result from the men's

400 metres, unofficial at the

2:59:412:59:46

moment. It might not matter to

Michael Cheryl.

2:59:462:59:56

Michael Cheryl. Oscar Husillos,

championship record and European

3:00:013:00:04

record. An extraordinary run for the

gold medal.

3:00:043:00:12

Next up on the track, the women's

1500 metres final, featuring a

3:00:123:00:18

Scottish runner.

COMMENTATOR:

3:00:183:00:25

Laura Muir stretches away and comes

to win the gold medal for Great

3:00:253:00:28

Britain. Look how fast she is going.

She's now got two gold medals. She's

3:00:283:00:37

a champion again!

Laura Muir.

Laura

Muir, one last effort! She's

3:00:373:00:45

definitely got a medal. What colour

will it be?

Indoors is something she

3:00:453:00:51

excels at.

GABBY LOGAN:

3:00:513:00:57

A bronze on might one, 1500 metres

tonight. She will be inspired by her

3:00:573:01:04

Scottish team-mate Eilidh Doyle

taking

3:01:043:01:05

Scottish team-mate Eilidh Doyle

taking the bronze tonight in that

3:01:053:01:07

400 metres and she's more than

capable of mixing it herself onto

3:01:073:01:11

the podium tonight, Laura?

She is,

you've called it, it's all about

3:01:113:01:15

tactics, it's about being in the

right place at the right time to

3:01:153:01:18

strike. If anyone can do it, Laura

can. But it's about staying focused.

3:01:183:01:23

She's in good shape, she's in good

enough shape to challenge here for a

3:01:233:01:36

medal but going to be really tough

out there.

This is her last major

3:01:373:01:40

championships for a while, she's not

running in the Commonwealth

3:01:403:01:42

Championships. We haven't updated

you on the mend's 800-metre medal

3:01:423:01:44

ceremony that isn't happening at the

moment because of a disqualification

3:01:443:01:46

that is still standing, but Sidorova

is about to go. Here's Steve

3:01:463:01:49

Backley.

3:01:493:01:49

is about to go. Here's Steve

Backley.

3:01:493:01:50

COMMENTATOR:

She looks like she will have her

3:01:503:01:54

third attempt at 4.90, she's just

watched Sandi Morris go clear. There

3:01:543:01:59

she is on the right, with Katie

Nageotte.

3:01:593:02:10

Nageotte. Sidorova, I to nothing,

third attempt at 4.90, she does.

3:02:103:02:17

It's a brilliant job.

That's

pressure, isn't it? That's pressure.

3:02:173:02:22

Clapping her hands, there is a

mixture of emotions there, well done

3:02:223:02:26

for clearing 4.90, but I'm a bit

upset you cleared 4.90! Competition

3:02:263:02:32

continues.

She equals the

Championship record. Sidorova

3:02:323:02:36

showing some character. But still in

second place, so I say jump to

3:02:363:02:43

nothing, it did of course keep her

in the competition and now she gets

3:02:433:02:47

three chances at the next height,

which will be 4.95. Sandi Morris

3:02:473:02:53

will get to go first. Morris is

still in the lead, because she

3:02:533:02:58

cleared at the second time of

asking, Sidorova at the third time

3:02:583:03:01

of asking. Relief for Sidorova and,

well, it's going to take a new

3:03:013:03:11

Championship record to decide

between the two possibly.

3:03:113:03:20

STEVE CRAM:

Extraordinary news from the 400

3:03:243:03:27

metres, Oscar Soliz is, the

long-awaited Spanish gold and

3:03:273:03:33

amazing run, has been disqualified

-- Oscar Husillos. Santos thought he

3:03:333:03:45

had the silver, he's been

disqualified. As it stands, Pavel

3:03:453:03:49

Maslak has the gold medal, has a

third gold medal. An entirely

3:03:493:03:54

bizarre circumstances, Maslak will

get the gold, Michael Cherry the

3:03:543:03:59

silver, Deon Lendore the bronze and

disqualifications just come thick

3:03:593:04:03

and fast at these championships.

Spain will counter protest, I'm sure

3:04:033:04:06

they will, but its official now.

Oscar Husillos has nothing, he's

3:04:063:04:10

been disqualified after thinking he

had everything, the gold medal, the

3:04:103:04:15

European record, the championship

record, extraordinary.

3:04:153:04:18

GABBY LOGAN:

During the race I thought I saw Bush

3:04:183:04:21

During the race I thought I saw Bush

budget

3:04:213:04:22

GABBY LOGAN:

During the race I thought I saw Bush

3:04:223:04:22

budget was a lane infringement, the

same that -- the same rule that has

3:04:223:04:27

netted 16 disqualifications, that

would make it 18. Have you ever

3:04:273:04:30

known anything like this?

Know, and

we should have known when an entire

3:04:303:04:35

heat was disqualified yesterday in

the 400 metres that this was going

3:04:353:04:39

to get crazy, and it has got crazy.

Ultimately as a championships you

3:04:393:04:43

want the rules to stand and athletes

need to abide by the rules, but this

3:04:433:04:47

needs to be looked at, because now

you've got so many, you know, people

3:04:473:04:51

just saw arrays but it didn't finish

the way they saw it. The results

3:04:513:04:54

don't reflect what they saw and

that's a problem. I don't know what

3:04:543:04:59

the lane infringement is... You

know, should you allow...

Is a lane

3:04:593:05:06

infringement doesn't affect somebody

else's race?

You can gain an

3:05:063:05:11

advantage by being too far on the

inside of the lane, that is why the

3:05:113:05:14

line is there but maybe you might

need to look at this and maybe it's

3:05:143:05:19

two feet on the line, two steps on

the line or something, because

3:05:193:05:22

ultimately you can't continue to go

this way, where you have all of

3:05:223:05:26

these disqualifications.

It's too

late though, you can't have these

3:05:263:05:29

flexible rules come you can't change

it.

Not going back and changing

3:05:293:05:34

these results, but I'm saying going

forward you don't want the next

3:05:343:05:36

indoor Championships you don't want

this...

Nobody...

People won't come!

3:05:363:05:44

Yerbury is not just in the 400s,

three in the 3000, one in the 800

3:05:443:05:50

metres.

3:05:503:05:50

three in the 3000, one in the 800

metres. Here it is, you've got

3:05:503:05:54

Aldrich Bailey on the inside,

Michael Cherry on the inside, so the

3:05:543:05:59

winner was Husillos on the outside.

So far he's getting close to the

3:05:593:06:03

line, then off the line... I didn't

see anything there.

I think the

3:06:033:06:12

incident happened earlier on, on the

first bend, actually, Michael. You

3:06:123:06:16

could see him all to his running

style as he came out of the blocks

3:06:163:06:20

and ran the first turn, because this

is at the break. I think the

3:06:203:06:24

incident happened before that. You

saw him physically alter, like, oh

3:06:243:06:28

my goodness, I'm close to the line.

Must have happened at the first

3:06:283:06:33

curve.

Maslak has been promoted to

gold, which makes him the three-time

3:06:333:06:36

winner

3:06:363:06:41

winner of the indoor 400 metres, but

not in the way he expected maybe.

3:06:423:06:45

It's time now for the 1500 metres.

Stay in your lanes, ladies! Of

3:06:453:06:47

course Laura Muir of Great Britain,

bronze-medallist at the 3000 metres,

3:06:473:06:51

going in this. Steve Cram, what an

extraordinary night.

3:06:513:06:55

STEVE CRAM:

I agree with Michael, it's become a

3:06:553:06:57

bit of a farce and we can't see any

judges out there, this is all being

3:06:573:07:02

done from television, as far as we

are aware, from video. It's not

3:07:023:07:07

helpful, to be perfectly honest. I

don't think any athletes are

3:07:073:07:09

deliberately cheating. If they are,

yes, you

3:07:093:07:20

yes, you disqualify them, if thou

getting an advantage, disqualify

3:07:203:07:22

them, but it spoiled it for the

public and everybody watching as

3:07:223:07:24

well. The rules are rules, I guess,

that is what they will say to us.

3:07:243:07:27

Let's hope they all stay on their

feet, they don't push and shove and

3:07:273:07:30

they managed to not step on the

line, on the inside, as we see

3:07:303:07:34

Beatrice Chepkoech who may have an

opportunity to upset the apple cart

3:07:343:07:40

here. Asia brought, recently married

to the American 1500 metre runner,

3:07:403:07:47

hopefully he's given some helpful

thoughts here. Jens B Dibaba, the

3:07:473:07:52

gold-medallist in the 3000 metres.

-- Ginza be Dibaba. Winny Chebet had

3:07:523:07:59

to run the 800 metres this morning,

she was registered for that as well,

3:07:593:08:02

so she ran 2.18, had a trot around.

Shelby Houlihan was in the 3000

3:08:023:08:10

metres final, finished fifth, but a

dangerous athletes and can finish

3:08:103:08:14

quickly. Colleen Quigley, her

team-mate, has been a little bit

3:08:143:08:19

critical of some of the facilities

here.

3:08:193:08:25

here. Sifan Hassan, the silver medal

in the 3000 for her, and she of

3:08:263:08:31

course the defending champion in

this particular event, the 1500

3:08:313:08:33

metres.

CHEERING

3:08:333:08:37

I great reception for Laura Muir,

has medal now in her bag to take

3:08:373:08:43

home. Can she make it two? Arafi

from Morocco, very experienced,

3:08:433:08:50

could be a danger if any of the big

names. Then we've got an extra one,

3:08:503:08:55

Meraf Bahta, well, she wasn't

disqualified. She was advanced into

3:08:553:09:00

the final because somebody pushed

her. She wasn't pushed, to be fair,

3:09:003:09:05

Colleen Quigley accidentally caught

her legs and she fell, so she has

3:09:053:09:08

been advanced to this final. Well,

Laura Muir knows Hassan and Dibaba

3:09:083:09:19

really well and we know that on more

than one occasion she has beaten

3:09:193:09:26

them. But they've beaten her as

well. Dibaba has it within herself,

3:09:263:09:31

the world record holder in this

event indoors and Laura Muir knows

3:09:313:09:38

this is going to be tough. We are

just getting and note that the jury

3:09:383:09:45

of appeal are going to meet to

discuss that 800 metres scenario

3:09:453:09:50

with Drew Windle, who at the moment

still remains disqualified. We have

3:09:503:09:54

and have the medal ceremony for that

event. We'll keep you up-to-date

3:09:543:09:58

with what they decide. So Laura,

she's in great shape. That's 3000

3:09:583:10:04

metres was a tough race.

3:10:043:10:10

metres was a tough race. She will

still have that in her legs a bit,

3:10:113:10:14

but all of them train for this. The

other endurance athletes come back

3:10:143:10:19

after the heats and will have had

another 24 hours to refresh. Kenyan

3:10:193:10:23

champion will be a threat. The

women's 1500 metres final. So I'm

3:10:233:10:33

not sure how quick they are going to

go here, Paula, but given that they

3:10:333:10:38

ran 4.4 for the last 1500 in the

3000 metres and 2.37 for the last,

3:10:383:10:45

we may see a similar race, worries

about the last 800 metres.

The first

3:10:453:10:53

lap looks slow because they are

bunched up. It looked like Chepkoech

3:10:533:10:57

may go to the front to take the race

by the scruff of the neck but this

3:10:573:11:02

is the kind of face we see in a

10,000 metre race, so it's playing

3:11:023:11:05

into the hands of the sprinters.

You

never want this slow. They were

3:11:053:11:09

almost walking, almost tripping over

each other. 40 seconds for the first

3:11:093:11:14

200, and this is where your nerve

has to hold. You don't train to run

3:11:143:11:18

40 seconds for the first lap, but

bear in mind Laura Muir has run

3:11:183:11:28

bear in mind Laura Muir has run a

sub... Laura Muir plays into her

3:11:293:11:31

hands a little bit but there are big

fast kickers here and Dibaba won't

3:11:313:11:36

let this hang around too long at

this sort of pace. Your Babineaux,

3:11:363:11:39

she won't let this hang around too

long and Laura Muir has run that but

3:11:393:11:45

Hassan and Dibaba in Beijing, 1.57

in the middle of a 1500 metres, so

3:11:453:11:50

they are capable of kicking away

from this and the other girls in

3:11:503:11:53

this field have to be aware of that.

If you're in there and you don't

3:11:533:11:57

think you can run a sub 200 minutes

8-ender as you should be trying to

3:11:573:12:01

do something and make it into a 1500

metre race. Am not sure Chepkoech

3:12:013:12:05

has that sort of pace, here we go,

Dibaba has said enough is enough, we

3:12:053:12:10

are off and she backs herself to run

from the flood. She backs herself to

3:12:103:12:14

be stronger, she backs herself to be

able to run the finish out of

3:12:143:12:19

everybody else. She has gone really

hard, she is beginning to wind this

3:12:193:12:21

up. That was a 33. The next 200 will

be quicker. Hassan just a little

3:12:213:12:27

nudge from Arafi to Chepkoech, Laura

Muir in a good place. She will be

3:12:273:12:32

patient here, doesn't want to get

too involved when the big surges

3:12:323:12:37

come, try and stay in contact and

see what she can pick off in the

3:12:373:12:41

latter stages. Dibaba leads,

Chepkoech, then Hassan. Laura Muir

3:12:413:12:44

running sensibly at this point.

She

has slotted herself back in, she's

3:12:443:12:49

given a nudge to say you are not

cutting in front of me and she had

3:12:493:12:53

to go around her but she has allowed

her past in front and she looks as

3:12:533:12:57

though is she struggling to hang

onto this group of five now? By

3:12:573:13:00

bombing Laura Muir has to stay in

contact here, no worries yet, she is

3:13:003:13:06

realising the pace is on -- Laura

Muir has to stay in contact here.

3:13:063:13:14

The four athletes we thought would

contest the medals are in the first

3:13:143:13:19

four positions. Dibaba, Hassan, the

defending champion, Laura Muir

3:13:193:13:25

moving into third ahead of Chepkoech

and Bay Street could pull clear

3:13:253:13:28

because I don't know if Chepkoech

has the pace to go with them.

Now

3:13:283:13:34

they are moving faster Laura Muir

looks so much better. She needs to

3:13:343:13:37

wait and be patient. These two are

going...

They are going flat out,

3:13:373:13:45

Dibaba is stretching them, Laura

Muir has to stay strong and find

3:13:453:13:47

something in the last 50 metres.

She's never been this close to these

3:13:473:13:52

two at these stage so Dibaba and

Hassan and Laura Muir, has to keep

3:13:523:13:57

working hard here. Has got to keep

pushing. Look how fast they are

3:13:573:14:01

going here. It's remarkable. Flat

out, a lap to go. Dibaba goes again.

3:14:013:14:07

This is what she did in the 3000

metres. Laura Muir still hanging on.

3:14:073:14:12

Hassan is letting a gap to go there.

Laura can go past Hassan. Dibaba is

3:14:123:14:17

going away. She can still get their!

She has to try to get close! Half a

3:14:173:14:26

metre closer, Dibaba goes again. The

Ethiopian has got too much. Dibaba

3:14:263:14:32

makes it a double gold medal

performance. Laura Muir wins her

3:14:323:14:36

second medal, it's a silver for

Great Britain. A superb run from

3:14:363:14:41

Laura Muir. Sifan Hassan the bronze,

just for a moment I thought that

3:14:413:14:47

maybe Dibaba was going to come under

real pressure from Laura Muir. Let's

3:14:473:14:53

hand it to Dibaba, two brilliant

races and she ran the legs out of

3:14:533:14:57

everybody else. She made in the way

we thought she would, just wind it

3:14:573:15:01

up, wind it up. Laura was great.

Didn't overcommit too early, waited

3:15:013:15:05

for a chance to get past Hassan, did

her utmost best, as she always does,

3:15:053:15:11

to try to chase down Dibaba. Dibaba

was just too good but goodness me, a

3:15:113:15:16

bronze and now a silver medal, great

racing from three women, three top,

3:15:163:15:21

top endurance women who have given

us a great show in both events.

3:15:213:15:27

Yeah, a really great race. I do know

is Laura Muir might have run a

3:15:273:15:30

personal best for the last 800

metres of that race because

3:15:303:15:32

certainly she was moving very, very

quickly. She just managed to reverse

3:15:323:15:37

the medal position with Hassan from

the 3000 metres and did it by

3:15:373:15:42

judging the race to perfection.

Dibaba had taken it by the scruff of

3:15:423:15:45

the neck, she was winding it up,

winding it up, more and more each

3:15:453:15:49

lap and that's a very hard way to

run. You can see the damage it was

3:15:493:15:58

doing to the field. Chepkoech looked

so easy running 4.02 last week,

3:15:583:16:00

couldn't keep with that. Laura Muir

waited and waited, Hassan tried to

3:16:003:16:05

move it to close to Dibaba at that

point. It could have been forgiven

3:16:053:16:10

for thinking it was finishing a lap

earlier here, all three of them were

3:16:103:16:14

sprinting flat out. It was just

hanging on. Laura doesn't even check

3:16:143:16:19

up at the screen down the home

straight, her eyes are focused in

3:16:193:16:22

front. She's not worried about

danger from behind. She's trying

3:16:223:16:25

muster everything she can to give

one last attack on the final lap.

3:16:253:16:35

Even at this point he would think

that Hassan made out kick Laura

3:16:373:16:41

Muir. Having got the medal in the

3000 metres as well. Maybe she is

3:16:413:16:51

determined to dig a little deeper.

She is focusing on Dibaba. She has

3:16:513:16:57

never at any point settled on the

silver medal. She was not quite good

3:16:573:17:01

enough tonight to get back at

Dibaba.

Two brilliant races from

3:17:013:17:09

three wonderful women. What about

Laura Muir law! She is full of

3:17:093:17:14

determination and talents and now

she is getting the timing right. Her

3:17:143:17:20

race brain is working superbly well.

Here, she is getting closer and

3:17:203:17:26

closer, has Dibaba got anything

left? Yes, she has. She has left

3:17:263:17:31

something. She is the redoubtable

competitor herself, particularly

3:17:313:17:34

running from the front when it is

going well. A stunning piece of

3:17:343:17:40

running by all three women,

particularly Laura Muir, a great

3:17:403:17:44

reward. A bronze and silver. I have

to say, I am sure Laura, and her

3:17:443:17:54

coach, Andy Young, this is the medal

that will mean a little bit more. A

3:17:543:17:59

1500 metres runner. She can do the

long distance and the short distance

3:17:593:18:03

but this is where her heart is.

Winning a silver medal, superbly

3:18:033:18:07

done. Dibaba up with two gold medals

for her and Ethiopian. What an

3:18:073:18:18

incredible couple of days for Laura

Muir. On Thursday morning she was in

3:18:183:18:22

a lecture. She had to get in a car,

which was difficult with the snow

3:18:223:18:29

full stop she got here late and

competed in the 3000 metres on

3:18:293:18:33

Friday. Here we are on Saturday with

the silver medal. Paul alluded to

3:18:333:18:41

it, that confidence and taking on

the big names, the names that will

3:18:413:18:46

be outdoors. These are the name she

will beat in the big championships,

3:18:463:18:51

if to get herself on to the rostrum

in the future. She has had an

3:18:513:18:54

amazing few days.

She has had an

amazing couple of days. Listening to

3:18:543:19:01

Paul comic you do not know what she

is capable of because she is so

3:19:013:19:05

talented and she can push on from

here. For all intents and purposes

3:19:053:19:10

she is not in tiptop shape, she is

in good shape. Juggling studying and

3:19:103:19:17

training has been difficult.

By her

own admission she said she has not

3:19:173:19:23

done the volume of training she did

for Belgrade. It'll be interesting

3:19:233:19:27

to see what she can do when she can

devote more time to the sport.

This

3:19:273:19:32

will give her a big boost of

confidence. She has come here and

3:19:323:19:37

won a couple of medals and got ready

for the outdoors. Next you'll be a

3:19:373:19:43

real opportunity for her. She a

potential medallist. Going into next

3:19:433:19:49

year and the next two years.

Now for

a very exciting pole vault. Steve

3:19:493:19:57

Backley. Morris is in the lead. Two

fouls at this height. Both her and

3:19:573:20:05

Sidorova have equalled the

championship record of 4.19 metres.

3:20:053:20:11

They have both fouled twice. -- 4.90

metres. It probably means a

3:20:113:20:18

clearance here or either of them to

take the gold, if both of them have

3:20:183:20:25

fouled, then Morris will be handed

the gold. Morris to go first for the

3:20:253:20:30

USA. This looks really committed.

Has it stayed up? It has. Morris

3:20:303:20:39

with a beautiful jump. A smile on

the face of Sidorova will stop she

3:20:393:20:44

can respond but Morris, beautiful!

Has she sucked the wind out of the

3:20:443:20:54

sails of Sidorova? The bar is still

wobbling and the judge waited until

3:20:543:21:00

he was satisfied. They will study

the bar I make sure it is on

3:21:003:21:04

properly for the attempt of

Sidorova. -- and make sure.

Surely

3:21:043:21:10

that is enough now. She has been a

standout jumper, even from the other

3:21:103:21:17

side were looking with the naked eye

across the arena at Birmingham. She

3:21:173:21:23

looks a class apart from the rest of

the boulders. Sidorova has already

3:21:233:21:28

taken to the runway. Even if

Sidorova goes clear and matches this

3:21:283:21:33

currency is still in second place.

Just looking at her wryly smile, she

3:21:333:21:42

still has to go.

3:21:423:21:48

still has to go. -- matches this,

she is still in second place. Will

3:21:493:21:52

they make Sidorova wait while they

present their hurdles athletes? That

3:21:523:21:59

will be cruel.

3:21:593:22:05

will be cruel. Their positions have

been reversed. Sidorova, as we saw,

3:22:073:22:13

a little while ago, if she goes

clear, it will be a new lifetime

3:22:133:22:17

best she has already done that this

evening that she will stay in second

3:22:173:22:22

place. Silence again. 4.95 will stop

that was really close.

It was really

3:22:223:22:29

close will stop gold for Morris.

3:22:293:22:37

close will stop gold for Morris. --

it was really close and gold for

3:22:373:22:41

Morris. A succession of silver

medals and finally she takes the

3:22:413:22:48

gold. Sidorova as to settle for

second but with the new lifetime

3:22:483:22:54

best. Very entertaining. Gold for

Morris and the USA. Congratulations

3:22:543:23:00

all round.

I feel sorry for

Sidorova, having a clean record all

3:23:003:23:07

the way up to 4.85 and then

producing a personal best. You

3:23:073:23:12

cannot ask for more than that in a

major championships. An absolute

3:23:123:23:17

best at the championships. That is a

nice scene. They have been

3:23:173:23:23

congratulating each other all

through this competition. That

3:23:233:23:27

camaraderie is brilliant to see.

These are the gold and

3:23:273:23:31

silver-medallists. Is up for a

brilliant competition. Hugely

3:23:313:23:36

entertaining. -- bands up. Morris,

the best in the world, indoor

3:23:363:23:44

champion.

We have just seen the

vault again. We're just seeing on

3:23:443:23:53

the scorecard, the bar is being

raised to 5.04 metres.

3:23:533:24:01

raised to 5.04 metres.

The lights

dim around the arena and ready for

3:24:043:24:07

the introduction of the finalists in

the women's 60 metres hurdles. Three

3:24:073:24:14

Americans go here. Can anyone

challenge them? They are about to be

3:24:143:24:22

introduced to the Birmingham crowd.

Charlton, how well she has run so

3:24:223:24:31

far. The new record so far in the

semifinal, 7.80 nine.

3:24:313:24:42

semifinal, 7.80 nine. -- 7.89. The

youngest in the final, Amusan, the

3:24:473:24:53

Nigerian.

3:24:533:25:01

Nigerian. Cindy Roleder, the

reigning European champion, won the

3:25:013:25:08

indoor title in outdoors a couple of

years ago. Nadine Visser is

3:25:083:25:15

separating the Americans in the

line-up. An astonishing run from

3:25:153:25:23

this. Christina Manning seems to be

on a mission here. Third at the US

3:25:233:25:30

championships. Here because she won

the overall indoor tour title.

3:25:303:25:37

Nelvis, the fastest in the world

this year. Kenny Harrison, we know

3:25:373:25:46

she is fast. Can she deliver in a

championship final? That is the one

3:25:463:25:51

query about her. Harrison holds the

world record outdoors over 100. We

3:25:513:26:00

are looking at the possible world

record going here.

3:26:003:26:12

7.86, and Jones has the championship

record. The chance for the first

3:26:133:26:21

ever medal sweep at the World

Championship. It has never been done

3:26:213:26:25

before. The wild card system allowed

Manning in. So, Harrison, Nelvis and

3:26:253:26:32

Manning. This set in the middle,

flying in the semifinals. Pedersen

3:26:323:26:37

of Norway, alongside Nelvis. One of

the highest quality fine as we have

3:26:373:26:43

had at the world indoor

Championships.

3:26:433:26:51

This, the final of the women's 60

metres hurdles.

Stand up, please.

3:26:513:27:03

Showing a green card, please.

This

is the first time we have really had

3:27:033:27:08

the athletes being told to stand up

and reset themselves. Colin Jackson

3:27:083:27:14

alongside. Talking about Harrison,

the beautiful hurdler. So fast. It

3:27:143:27:19

is about doing it in the finals

though.

She is a dynamic hurdler.

3:27:193:27:30

She has good technique. You hope she

is not vulnerable when it comes to

3:27:303:27:34

the highly pressured situations. She

deserves a title. Will this be the

3:27:343:27:40

one.

3:27:403:27:47

one.

They settle once more. Ready

for the final.

3:27:473:27:58

Harrison has taken it on the line.

7.70 and a championship record.

3:28:053:28:13

Beats the time of Jones. We should

never have doubted her ability to

3:28:133:28:20

deliver on this stage. How fast she

can run as Commissioner now she has

3:28:203:28:23

the gold medal. -- how fast she has

run! Manning celebrates her silver.

3:28:233:28:32

A great run from Harrison. Just

looking, will it be a one, two,

3:28:323:28:44

three? No, what around from the

Dutch athlete, Nadine Visser.

3:28:443:28:49

Finally she has the title she has

craved for so long.

A very

3:28:493:28:55

competitive run. Exactly what we

would expect. The challenge

3:28:553:29:01

initially by Manning. She could not

hold on to the leg speed

3:29:013:29:07

demonstrated by Harris. Let's have a

look again. They both get out

3:29:073:29:13

tremendously strong with a good

technique. They are trying to hold

3:29:133:29:17

their form and keep strong under the

pressure. It pulls Harris ahead of

3:29:173:29:24

the rest of the field.

The Americans

had been hoping for a one, two,

3:29:243:29:32

three but Nelvis losing her balance

at the end of the race and this was

3:29:323:29:36

able to come through.

She clattered

that barrier which meant she could

3:29:363:29:42

not going into a proper sprinting

action off the final hurdle. She was

3:29:423:29:45

not really getting into that race.

Being away from the field would have

3:29:453:29:50

had a bit of an effect. These two,

the gold and silver-medallists.

3:29:503:29:57

This, the bronze-medallist to the

right of the screen. You can see how

3:29:573:30:02

she pushes away. That is what drags

into the next barrier. Nice and

3:30:023:30:08

aggressive. It is controlled. Allows

her to really get to the strong,

3:30:083:30:13

sprinting speed that is necessary.

Christina Manning just smiles and

3:30:133:30:19

thinks, well done mate you have got

me today!

The smile of a champion

3:30:193:30:25

and two stars and stripes fly

alongside the Dutch flag. A great

3:30:253:30:30

run by this to take the bronze

medal. Nothing for Nelvis of the

3:30:303:30:35

United States were no clean sweep.

Not too bad to have gold and silver

3:30:353:30:39

and gold for Harrison.

3:30:393:30:45

So just to tidy it all up for you,

Harrison with a championship record,

3:30:453:30:52

eclipsing the mark Gough Lolo Jones.

The Stena Manning with the silver,

3:30:523:30:57

Nadine Visser with the bronze,

Sharika Nelvis just out of things in

3:30:573:31:01

fourth place. Ewan-macro Sandi

Morris has won the competition and

3:31:013:31:08

now she gets a chance to have a

crack at a new, well, it would be a

3:31:083:31:14

world record. Have a chat with Tony

Minichiello as to what the world

3:31:143:31:20

record is because there is

confusion. 5.02, or 5.0 three.

3:31:203:31:26

Officially 5.02 because the

world-record holder jumps both those

3:31:263:31:33

heights, I'll explain more in a

second. A new world record, when

3:31:333:31:37

sideways on that. -- she went

sideways on that. So Sandi Morris,

3:31:373:31:47

two more chances. A nod from her

coach. Here's a little look back at

3:31:473:31:55

the triple jump. We saw this

earlier. This was Will Claye's

3:31:553:32:02

fourth round jump. The double

Olympic champion if it wasn't for

3:32:023:32:09

his team-mate. He knew that was

brilliant. We knew he'd done really,

3:32:093:32:19

really, well, taken it beyond the

reach of the best of the rest.

3:32:193:32:23

Slightly below what we've seen in

the past. Will Claye, well, I think

3:32:233:32:28

he's fairly pleased with that. World

leading jump, 17.43, ahead of Dos

3:32:283:32:35

Santos, a new lifetime best for him.

3:32:353:32:46

MUSIC

3:32:543:33:04

Gabby Adcock --

GABBY LOGAN:

3:33:213:33:22

He's the man to beat in the 60-metre

final coming up shortly. Christian

3:33:223:33:30

Coleman, silver-medallist in London,

is now Steve Cram can take you

3:33:303:33:33

through the medal ceremony for the

heptathlon. What a thrilling end to

3:33:333:33:37

this it was, Steve.

Yeah, it was a

superb last event, the 1000 metres,

3:33:373:33:44

Kevin Ryan on doing so well in the

pole vault and also a bronze medal

3:33:443:33:48

going to Maicel Uibo, who had a

great competition all the way

3:33:483:33:50

through. Damian Garner, Warner,

excuse me, almost did enough, almost

3:33:503:33:56

took the silver but there is the

champion adding to the world title

3:33:563:33:59

he took last year and Steve, he

wasn't at his best. He was to begin

3:33:593:34:03

with and then normally have a

cracking second day but not today.

3:34:033:34:07

Well, do you know what, it was

similar to Kat Johnson-Thompson's

3:34:073:34:13

performance in many ways, he got the

job done. He trains with Kat in the

3:34:133:34:16

South of France. A solid

performance.

Ladies and gentlemen,

3:34:163:34:22

the national land of France. --

National anthem of France.

3:34:223:34:32

FRENCH

NATIONAL ANTHEM PLAYS

3:34:403:34:50

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

A very emotional Kevin Mayer of

3:35:203:35:25

France, Liam Finn ringing around the

arena here in Birmingham -- the

3:35:253:35:34

anthem ringing around the arena here

in Birmingham. He is the double

3:35:343:35:38

world champion, outdoors and

indoors, in the heptathlon and

3:35:383:35:41

deserving winner by one of the

smallest margins, five points ahead

3:35:413:35:44

of Damian Warner, Maicel Uibo taking

the bronze forest Dhoni. A bit of

3:35:443:35:50

news for you, in the 800 metres we

are hearing that the American Drew

3:35:503:35:55

Windle has been reinstated. They are

going to have that medal ceremony

3:35:553:36:00

very shortly indeed. Elliot Giles

will not be receiving the bronze

3:36:003:36:04

medal, sadly. It's not good news

from a British perspective, but

3:36:043:36:07

probably a fair result in the end.

GABBY LOGAN:

3:36:073:36:14

Thank you very much, Steve, one

medal that is secure is a silver for

3:36:143:36:19

Laura Muir in the 1500 metres. We

spoke to her.

3:36:193:36:23

I spoke to you after 3000 metres,

bronze, you said you would use that

3:36:233:36:28

medal to inspire and improve your

performances. That worked quickly,

3:36:283:36:32

didn't it?

Yeah, that bronze gave me

confidence. I can battle it out with

3:36:323:36:37

these girls and control the race and

I felt so strong in a last lap I

3:36:373:36:41

just went for it.

There was a

crucial moment when it broke down to

3:36:413:36:44

the three of you.

3:36:443:36:51

the three of you. Did you know it

was just the three of you at that

3:36:533:36:56

point?

No, I didn't dare look back.

I ran as far as I can, it doesn't

3:36:563:37:00

make a difference if we've broken

away or not. I tried as hard as I

3:37:003:37:03

could.

That was it, it was such a

massive final lap. How incredible

3:37:033:37:06

did it feel as you passed into the

silver position and knew you would

3:37:063:37:09

continue this through.

I didn't know

until the finish line, Hassan is a

3:37:093:37:14

top-quality athlete, a multiple

medallist, so I didn't take anything

3:37:143:37:16

for granted once I passed. I knew

she would be fighting behind me.

3:37:163:37:22

When you started this week, you were

at university, did you honestly

3:37:223:37:25

believe you would be finishing the

week is a double world medallist?

3:37:253:37:31

Honestly, no. The competition was so

tough I thought if I could medal in

3:37:313:37:35

one it would be in a great

achievement and to medal in two and

3:37:353:37:38

get a silver is, I'm so pleased. Why

the athletes UberEats there, they

3:37:383:37:44

will be on the outdoor season as

well. I asked you before the 3000,

3:37:443:37:51

these two medals, what will it mean

to you to know you can come here and

3:37:513:37:55

you can challenge the best in the

world? It's such a confidence

3:37:553:37:58

booster. I've been there or

thereabouts, fourth, fifth, sixth,

3:37:583:38:03

seventh in global championships

prior to this and it's about time I

3:38:033:38:05

got on the podium and I've done the

double here.

You are finishing up

3:38:053:38:09

your studies, he will be moving into

full-time athlete. Your performances

3:38:093:38:14

will only improve as a result,

surely?

I hope so. It certainly

3:38:143:38:19

means more recovery. I hope to

continue the veterinary alongside it

3:38:193:38:23

may be in all true role. It will

give me an opportunity to recover

3:38:233:38:27

better between sessions and get away

or training trips which will be

3:38:273:38:30

really useful.

Thank you, Laura. You

can go and enjoy this one finally.

3:38:303:38:36

Thank you, cheers.

GABBY LOGAN:

3:38:363:38:40

Confirmation

3:38:403:38:40

GABBY LOGAN:

Confirmation that Drew Windle was

3:38:403:38:43

reinstated, it was almost quite

farcical going on, Drew and Elliot

3:38:433:38:47

Giles waiting imposition at the

medal ceremony to wait for the news,

3:38:473:38:53

they were waiting for 45 minutes but

sadly Elliot, it was probably the

3:38:533:38:59

right result in the end as Steve

said. Earlier on this evening we saw

3:38:593:39:04

Eilidh Doyle, captain of the British

team so many times and a real post a

3:39:043:39:10

goal for Scotland in the

Commonwealth Games, she's done so

3:39:103:39:12

well with the 4x400 but tonight was

her night as an individual. She's a

3:39:123:39:17

hurdler but over the flat she took

bronze medal and we

3:39:173:39:21

hurdler but over the flat she took

bronze medal and we spoke to her

3:39:213:39:23

afterwards.

Eilidh Doyle, the last time I spoke

3:39:233:39:25

to you in this mix zone I was

commiserations and you were out of

3:39:253:39:29

your door on the way to the pub. 24

hours later, bronze medal. Wow, what

3:39:293:39:35

a twist of emotions.

3:39:353:39:45

I I mean, last night I didn't quite

believe it until anything had been

3:39:463:39:50

sorted because the disqualifications

came through, there were appeals. I

3:39:503:39:51

was apprehensive about whether I

would be in the final or not. Then

3:39:513:39:54

it was confirmed, to have another

opportunity, a great opportunity and

3:39:543:39:56

if I could dig deep and try to win a

medal I had a chance to do that.

A

3:39:563:40:01

week ago we saw you in Glasgow, you

were really aggressive and that's

3:40:013:40:04

what you were today. It was being

aggressive that put you in

3:40:043:40:07

contention and got you that bronze.

Your bobbin yeah, I tried to work it

3:40:073:40:13

on the bend and I knew if I got

ahead I could carry on my running

3:40:133:40:17

nice and smoothly and not have to

chop too much. I tried to hang on

3:40:173:40:21

and get the silver. The calibre of

athletes in that race, in particular

3:40:213:40:25

two Americans, to be so close to

them, I'm really happy with that.

3:40:253:40:34

STEVE CRAM:

Now we move straight from a

3:40:363:40:38

delighted Eilidh Doyle to the

anticipation of one of the biggest

3:40:383:40:41

events of the weekend, the

3:40:413:40:43

anticipation of one of the biggest

events of the weekend, the men's

3:40:433:40:43

anticipation of one of the biggest

events of the weekend, the men's 60

3:40:433:40:43

metres. Misses Emre Zafer Barnes

competing for Turkey, then we're

3:40:433:40:49

going to get to some of the big

names here. Zhenye Xie, they are not

3:40:493:40:57

coming out in lane order. We'll get

the big names in a second, he needs

3:40:573:41:03

to be pointed where the star is.

It's up that way. What a great

3:41:033:41:08

performance from this man to make it

into the final, Hassan Taftian and

3:41:083:41:12

if you weren't with us earlier, CJ

Ujah. To the semifinals. In 2017 he

3:41:123:41:18

was top man in 60 metres. Ronnie

Baker, not this year, he's quick,

3:41:183:41:23

he's quick, he's very quick. He will

want to medal here. What about this

3:41:233:41:28

man here? Bingtian Su, a superb

60-metre runner from China. Can he

3:41:283:41:34

upset the apple cart and upset the

man who is the fastest ever in the

3:41:343:41:38

world at 60 metres, Christian

Coleman of the USA?

3:41:383:41:47

Coleman of the USA? Well, the last

time the world record was broken in

3:41:473:41:50

this championship was all the way

back in 1988, 1987 actually, a

3:41:503:41:55

certain Ben Johnson, and he was

disqualified, the world record was

3:41:553:42:00

given to Lee McRae, who finished

second. That was 6.50, a

3:42:003:42:05

championship best performance for

Rhys Green 6.4 two. Can Christian

3:42:053:42:10

Coleman go quicker than that here?

First of all he needs to beat those

3:42:103:42:13

meant to win the gold medal. -- beat

those men. When you are as good and

3:42:133:42:19

quick as he is there's always the

chance of something extra. It's a

3:42:193:42:23

fast track. There's a great

atmosphere tonight. We've had all

3:42:233:42:26

sorts going on. Are we in for

something special in this 60-metre

3:42:263:42:32

final? Jan Volko in lane one, Barnes

lane two, Zhenye Xie in five, Ronnie

3:42:323:42:43

Baker of United States in six,

Hassan Taftian in Iran in seven and

3:42:433:42:48

Sean Safo-Antwi in lane eight.

3:42:483:42:54

Sean Safo-Antwi in lane eight. The

men's 60-metre final.

3:42:573:43:07

Coleman wins it, a championship

record, 6.37. It was a great race.

3:43:093:43:20

They were closer than you might have

expected. Coleman is the world

3:43:203:43:24

champion. Adds it to his silver

medal V won outdoors last year. It

3:43:243:43:29

was quick, it was very, very quick.

But the other guys put in a superb

3:43:293:43:35

performance to make sure that he

couldn't relax at all. Ronnie Baker

3:43:353:43:38

and Bingtian Su, close. It's

Bingtian Su who gets the silver

3:43:383:43:44

medal. But Christian Coleman thou

got a good start. Never ever was

3:43:443:43:48

able to relax -- he was never able

to relax, he had to keep his foot

3:43:483:43:54

down all the way through. They kept

him honest. They ran really, really

3:43:543:43:57

well. Bingtian Su rewarded with a

silver medal. Baker got the bronze.

3:43:573:44:06

6.37, a championship record, 6.37 is

the official time. Well, something

3:44:063:44:14

special will stop

if anybody was

there in doubt about what this young

3:44:143:44:18

man is capable of I think they've

all be Lynn eliminated. He handled

3:44:183:44:23

the pressure well. He came into this

as a favourite. He didn't only run a

3:44:233:44:27

very quick time, he won this gold

medal with the pressure on him.

3:44:273:44:32

That's what is the most impressive

thing about this performance for me.

3:44:323:44:36

Repeat, repeat, repeat, that's

what's necessary. Bang, out of the

3:44:363:44:42

blocks, hard, well, no real mistakes

this time. It could still be a bit

3:44:423:44:46

better, he could get his feet under

him much quicker than that which

3:44:463:44:49

will assist his performance, but

look at everybody charging with him.

3:44:493:44:53

There was no let up, there was no

way that he could truly relax in

3:44:533:44:57

this field. For me, that's a good

sign, showing wraps when it comes

3:44:573:45:04

down doors, when the pressure is on,

this time around he may be able to

3:45:043:45:07

hold it together. He is working much

harder than we saw him in the early

3:45:073:45:10

rounds, that's pretty clear, but

it's a final and he's running one of

3:45:103:45:13

the fastest times we've ever seen on

this planet.

3:45:133:45:20

If you look at Christian Coleman

here, he is doing everything he

3:45:243:45:29

needed to do and exactly what we

expected of him will stop the

3:45:293:45:33

situation here for him was not to

make any mistakes. He knew he had

3:45:333:45:38

the ability to win this race and to

break the world record again if the

3:45:383:45:43

opportunity was there. This was all

about winning medals. He was

3:45:433:45:49

consistent. Repeat, repeat, repeat.

A couple of little stumbles, trying

3:45:493:45:54

to do the short step out of the

blocks. No real issues here. Both

3:45:543:46:01

these athletes, both Berry

efficient.

3:46:013:46:13

efficient. Su is very powerful but

for Christian, it is all about that

3:46:133:46:17

speed. The ability to pick up his

feet and put them down quickly.

3:46:173:46:23

Close at the line for second and

third. Ronnie Baker from the US in

3:46:233:46:28

third spot. The Chinese art on the

rise. Xie was force in that race

3:46:283:46:37

with a new record.

Morris for an

undisputed world record. That was

3:46:373:46:47

possibly her best. She'll ready had

the gold medal wrapped up. A great

3:46:473:46:55

performance earlier this evening.

Possibly went off the boil a little

3:46:553:47:00

bit but a great evening's work, all

the same. A gold medal for Morris

3:47:003:47:05

and a championship record, equalling

her lifetime best indoors. No world

3:47:053:47:12

record. Maybe that is something she

can build on. Three hours and 15

3:47:123:47:17

minutes since the start of that

competition and for Morris, the gold

3:47:173:47:20

medal.

It was quick for Chris

Coleman in the 60 metres. His

3:47:203:47:28

parents said, when he was little,

when he was two, he used to be

3:47:283:47:34

frightened of the Hoover. Whether

this is something special for him

3:47:343:47:40

going forward when he will be

cleaning up the gold medals

3:47:403:47:44

hopefully in the future. Excellent

from Su and Ronnie Baker in third

3:47:443:47:54

with .40 four.

Begins sprinter who

truly came to our attention in the

3:47:543:48:00

middle of that genetic evening when

Usain Bolt was different -- de

3:48:003:48:08

droned by Warren Gatland, he did not

get the plaudits he deserved. He was

3:48:083:48:17

22 on Tuesday could be talked about

what potential he could have over

3:48:173:48:21

100 metres.

3:48:213:48:27

100 metres. -- and we talked. He

wanted to be an American footballer.

3:48:273:48:31

I don't think he will regret his

change of career now.

He made it

3:48:313:48:38

through the American system as a

collegiate athlete. He came onto the

3:48:383:48:42

scene of the 100-metre runner and

had a very impressive race. We

3:48:423:48:47

showed how far out he was at 50

metres in that race against Usain

3:48:473:48:54

Bolt and Justin Gatlin 's. He had

real potential.

3:48:543:49:02

real potential. Now Championship

ownership will be an interesting

3:49:023:49:11

Championships. Just the ability to

run against the best but this is

3:49:113:49:16

great execution. He was very

consistent. Time and again we see

3:49:163:49:19

him do the same things. That is the

mark of a world-class athlete who

3:49:193:49:23

has the opportunity to win medals

time and again over his career

3:49:233:49:27

because he is very consistent and

has the right attitude. Very

3:49:273:49:33

level-headed in terms of his

emotions. That is the sort of

3:49:333:49:37

mindset that most champions are made

up, especially early in their

3:49:373:49:40

careers, like he is forced we may

see some personality coming out of

3:49:403:49:45

him later, that would be fantastic

will stop once he gets into his

3:49:453:49:49

career amateur oils... He is doing

the right thing right now. -- and

3:49:493:49:55

Michels. He doesn't want to put

additional pressure on himself.

The

3:49:553:50:03

best thing to do is to keep winning.

He is learning to do that. I have

3:50:033:50:08

seen him interviewed. He is dusty to

learn. He is not intimidated. He

3:50:083:50:16

loves being here, to be at his best.

We would talk about Su and the

3:50:163:50:23

Chinese sprinting dynasty that is

coming. Two and four they finished.

3:50:233:50:28

Right now the women's 400 metres

medal ceremony, featuring Eilidh

3:50:283:50:38

Doyle for Britain and Scotland.

A

great run for a litre oil. Better

3:50:383:50:42

known as a hurdler. She has medals

that that discipline that she will

3:50:423:50:46

have one on the flat here. She very

nearly got in between the two

3:50:463:50:53

Americans for a silver. It will be

bronze for a litre oil in an event

3:50:533:50:58

where America is strong favourite.

-- it will be bronze for Eilidh

3:50:583:51:06

Doyle. Silver in the Commonwealth

Games. Over 400 metres flat, she has

3:51:063:51:14

a bronze at the world indoors now.

Used her expedience and very nearly,

3:51:143:51:23

not split the Americans, 22 and

another great talent but so many

3:51:233:51:31

have come through the American

system with the numbers they have.

3:51:313:51:35

Wimbley was second in the US

Championships behind the

3:51:353:51:54

Carlow -- Okolo. She takes the

title. There might have been

3:51:553:52:00

stronger competition had to people

not been disqualified. She won by

3:52:003:52:07

owners to second from Wimbley. Gold

for Okolo and gold for the United

3:52:073:52:15

States.

And a word for Zoey Clark who made

the final as well in the women's 400

3:53:323:53:36

metres. She and Eilidh Doyle will go

into the relay squad and strengthen

3:53:363:53:44

that. Phyllis Francis as well

perhaps flooding into the American

3:53:443:53:50

quartet. The world record might be

under threat tomorrow. Bronze medal

Congratulations to a

Scottish athletes step up onto the

podium shortly. -- to Eilidh Doyle.

3:54:113:54:17

We have time to hear from the new

champion of the world over 60

3:54:173:54:21

metres. Christian Coleman is with JJ

charmers.

3:54:213:54:24

You have been so dominant in this

championship. You are an undisputed

3:54:283:54:33

world champion.

It feels pretty

good, especially when you say it

3:54:333:54:37

like that. I have been working so

hard and it is paying off.

You have

3:54:373:54:43

come through there he is very

comfortably. There were stumbles

3:54:433:54:46

along the way. How does it feel to

run such a clean race for the final?

3:54:463:54:53

That is what the rounds off for. You

have to work through the kinks. I

3:54:533:54:57

felt pretty good. I took the race

and I am pretty happy.

In the final

3:54:573:55:08

it was the most challenging have

been today. Did you know you had it

3:55:083:55:11

all the way?

I felt pretty good out

of the blocks and I had some

3:55:113:55:16

clearance. I could get in. I feel

like I executed it pretty good.

3:55:163:55:25

You've got the silver before and

there was some talk about that and

3:55:253:55:30

the retirement of Usain Bolt that

you got lost in that noise. How does

3:55:303:55:33

it feel to be here and know that you

will be the future of the sport?

3:55:333:55:41

Nobody really remembers second. I

used that as fuel coming into this

3:55:413:55:48

season, working really hard. I

wanted to come out with a few golds.

3:55:483:55:55

Thank you for talking to me.

I

appreciate it. The very relaxed

3:55:553:56:02

Christian Coleman, who made light

work of winning his first gold on

3:56:023:56:07

the major stage, making it look

easy. That is usually the mark of

3:56:073:56:13

brilliance. It was a fantastic run

by him, as it was by Laura Mule,

3:56:133:56:21

winning her second medal in two

days. -- Muir.

Hassan wins another

3:56:213:56:33

medal at the global level. It is not

the defence of her titles she would

3:56:333:56:36

have wanted. She would have loved to

have won the gold medal again. She

3:56:363:56:45

will be pretty happy with that.

Coached by Alberto Salazar these

3:56:453:56:51

days and based in the US. She knew

she was in another tough race. In

3:56:513:56:59

2003, the only other medallist in

the women's 1500 metres was Kelly

3:56:593:57:02

Holmes, who then went on to win the

Olympic title. Who knows? Laura

3:57:023:57:11

Muir, world indoor silver-medallist.

A superb performance by her. Two

3:57:113:57:17

medals from two great races.

World

indoor champion...

3:57:173:57:32

indoor champion... Dibaba can be

added to the very short

3:57:323:57:40

added to the very short list of

multiple winners. She did it in the

3:57:413:57:44

style she has become known for, run

away from Avebury made it so hard in

3:57:443:57:48

the last few laps. She got quicker

and quicker. -- ran away from

3:57:483:57:55

everybody and made it so hard in the

last few laps.

3:58:253:58:33

APPLAUSE

3:58:553:59:02

Three wonderful women who gave us

two brilliant races. I am sure this

3:59:023:59:07

is not the last time we will see

these three on a global rostrum.

3:59:073:59:14

Dibaba the gold, Laura Muir the

silver. We have had some

3:59:153:59:25

extraordinary sessions of athletics

over the years but tonight will take

3:59:253:59:29

some beating. That was an incredible

few hours. The crowd was treated to

3:59:293:59:35

some top-class athletics.

I don't

know where to start for that this is

3:59:353:59:39

why I love athletics. It is

thrilling.

Do you think she looks a

3:59:393:59:48

bit peeved?

How will she be Dibaba?

She tries. It is difficult outdoors

3:59:483:59:55

and difficult indoors as well.

Laura

Muir will find herself also asking

3:59:554:00:01

that question. How do you find a way

past Dibaba? She is either freezing

4:00:014:00:10

cold or fed up with Dibaba was

getting in her way.

Highlights for

4:00:104:00:16

you? Interestingly, the highlight

were the field events and it has

4:00:164:00:19

been throughout the championship.

The triple jump with the

4:00:194:00:25

championship record and the pole

vault going back and forth.

In one

4:00:254:00:29

word?

Eilidh Doyle. The women are

doing fantastically well. Join us

4:00:294:00:36

tomorrow night. The final session

starts at 2:45pm on BBC Two. It will

4:00:364:00:42

be fantastic.
