Colin Jackson has won his first gold

medal. He is the champion of the

0:00:080:00:12

world.

Athletic supporters are looking or

0:00:120:00:15

not just with admiration but in all.

Shakes Drayton for Britain!

0:00:150:00:24

He is the world champion!

0:00:290:00:35

Welcome to our coverage of the final

day of the world indoor athletics

0:00:390:00:43

Championships here in Birmingham. It

is a very sad day for the world of

0:00:430:00:48

athletics and, indeed, British and

world sport. Sir Roger Bannister,

0:00:480:00:52

the first man to run a four-minute

mile, has died at 88.

0:00:520:00:56

Here is Patrick Geary.

A windy, rainy day in Oxford. May

0:00:560:01:07

six, 1954.

The crowds were braving the

0:01:070:01:17

conditions. They had heard a British

medical student was set to challenge

0:01:170:01:23

a seemingly unbreakable record, the

four minute mile.

0:01:230:01:29

So when the weather brightened up at

the track, Bannister set off with

0:01:290:01:38

two friends acting as pacemakers.

When Chris chat away began to tire,

0:01:380:01:43

it was over to Bannister.

Makes joy

and anguish. My mind took over. --

0:01:430:01:51

makes to joy and anguish. I felt

that the moment of a lifetime had

0:01:510:01:56

come.

The Everest of athletics was

about to be conquered. Bannister

0:01:560:02:02

broke the tape in three minutes 59.4

seconds.

Am absolutely overwhelmed.

0:02:020:02:08

It is a great surprise to me to be

able to do it today, I think Ibis

0:02:080:02:13

very lucky.

He would never topped

what happens on the track that day,

0:02:130:02:17

but he became a major figure in

British sport. He shared the sports

0:02:170:02:22

Council and introduced the first

test for anabolic steroids. By the

0:02:220:02:26

time he appeared at the 2012 Sports

Personality Of The Year awards, he

0:02:260:02:31

knew he was suffering from

Parkinson's, a disease he spent most

0:02:310:02:34

of his life treating as a

neurologist. He was knighted for

0:02:340:02:43

services to medicine and sport.

Bannister regarded his medical

0:02:430:02:46

career as the greater achievements

but had strong memories of his day

0:02:460:02:48

in history.

I collapsed as I crossed

the tape but recovered sufficiently

0:02:480:02:52

to hear him announcing in a time

which, subject to ratification, will

0:02:520:02:59

be a new world record, three... And

after that the noise of the crowds

0:02:590:03:05

are obliterated the remainder of his

announcement.

0:03:050:03:11

Lord Sebastian: Steve Cram have

joined me to talk more about the

0:03:140:03:19

significance of that moment. -- Lord

Sebastian Coe and Steve Cram. And

0:03:190:03:26

also put into context how that day

perhaps transcends athletics and

0:03:260:03:30

sport. It was in an age of

pioneering. If you could put into

0:03:300:03:35

context for us exactly where he came

from in his athletics career and

0:03:350:03:39

what it was like for him?

He was

part of that Corinthian age where,

0:03:390:03:44

as you have heard in that film, for

him, athletics might not have been

0:03:440:03:48

the be all and end all but, as you

said rightly, there was a pioneering

0:03:480:03:54

spirit in the 50s.

0:03:540:04:03

spirit in the 50s. Roger was a great

athlete, he would tease said and I

0:04:030:04:05

about had he been around in our day

with better tracks, shoes and

0:04:050:04:08

training methods. He was a great

athlete. It was destined to happen.

0:04:080:04:12

We heard John Landy was going to try

to break the four-minute mile.

0:04:120:04:16

Everything came together on that

day. It was filmed. For the first

0:04:160:04:21

time the news of what happened very

quickly got out to not only the

0:04:210:04:25

British public but around the world.

It was one of the first sporting

0:04:250:04:29

events for that to happen. The

resonance of his achievement was

0:04:290:04:33

much greater than it might have been

if he had done its two or three

0:04:330:04:37

years earlier. He was always very

self-effacing about it but, for me,

0:04:370:04:43

and I am sure for Seb, the first

book my coach gave me was The Four

0:04:430:04:49

Minute Mile. The first film he made

me watch was those grainy pictures.

0:04:490:04:57

Scientist says people would die if

they ran a four-minute mile. Records

0:04:570:05:00

are there to be broken, but that

particular barrier was seen as

0:05:000:05:05

something that was medically almost

impossible?

It was. You are right,

0:05:050:05:10

people were writing learned treaties

and medical magazine saying if you

0:05:100:05:13

try to do that, it is

life-threatening. He was one of the

0:05:130:05:20

cleverest people I think I have ever

met. He was, in equal measure,

0:05:200:05:26

modest as well. He never really got

what he did. It was not a front. He

0:05:260:05:33

just said, he used the line there, I

am quite lucky. I don't think the

0:05:330:05:39

enormity of what he did came to life

for me until I actually had the

0:05:390:05:47

great privilege, and we both knew

him well, sitting in his sitting

0:05:470:05:50

room and we were comparing training

diaries. And I think it is fair to

0:05:500:05:55

say we were probably doing in a day

and a half, two days, but these guys

0:05:550:06:01

were to begin a week and a half,

maybe two weeks. Then you look at

0:06:010:06:04

the times he achieved off the back

of what was really quite thin

0:06:040:06:11

training, he and his colleagues were

beginning to use the science of the

0:06:110:06:14

sport and exploring it and he had a

medical background, but when you

0:06:140:06:18

look at the time... And people

dismissed the four minute barrier.

0:06:180:06:25

More people have individually

climbed Everest than run a four

0:06:250:06:28

minute mile. It is an extraordinary

achievement. Interestingly, in your

0:06:280:06:33

lovely little montage, somebody, I

think the voice-over, said he did

0:06:330:06:39

not achieve again on the track.

Actually, in pure racing terms,

0:06:390:06:45

winning the Commonwealth title

months later in Vancouver when he

0:06:450:06:48

again Peter John Landy, was one of

the greater mile races of all time

0:06:480:06:54

-- when he again Peter John Landy.

He turned down the chance to go to

0:06:540:06:58

the Olympics in 1948 because he was

studying, that tells you a lot about

0:06:580:07:02

what athletics was like.

He became a

volunteer in 48.

So at the sport was

0:07:020:07:10

important to him, no doubt, but not

the same sport we have now, clearly.

0:07:100:07:16

He was at university to study to

become a doctor, he always said, not

0:07:160:07:20

to become an athlete. Pursuing an

athletics career while he was there,

0:07:200:07:24

it could have been rowing or

something else, it was always going

0:07:240:07:28

to come to an end at a point when he

wanted to get on with his career. He

0:07:280:07:35

left this massive, massive legacy.

What did it do for you?

For all

0:07:350:07:42

young milers, I was born in 1960, it

happened a few years before I was

0:07:420:07:46

born, he was a bit older than me,

the first person that you are taught

0:07:460:07:52

to look up to was Roger Bannister.

Then after that you are looking at

0:07:520:07:59

times, all athletes do. When I was

15, 16, I was already thinking I

0:07:590:08:05

wonder if I could run a four minute

mile one day. That is still true and

0:08:050:08:10

that is where all athletes around

the world, one of the athletes at

0:08:100:08:18

the beginning of these World

Championships who was shown in the

0:08:180:08:20

titles, he came to the 50th

anniversary Championships, we had

0:08:200:08:25

Peter Snell, John Landy, Jim Wright,

all the greats. But that athlete was

0:08:250:08:30

bowing down to Sir Roger Bannister

in a way which I found really

0:08:300:08:35

touching. If a guy from Morocco in

the midnight is understood what

0:08:350:08:40

Roger Bannister meant to other

sports, to me that was really

0:08:400:08:44

heart-warming. And it still does too

many youngsters around the world.

0:08:440:08:48

There is no athlete of our vintage,

particularly in middle distance

0:08:480:08:54

running, that did not look at him as

the senior partner. The mile high

0:08:540:08:58

Dane Piedt history before Roger did

what he did, we had Walter George,

0:08:580:09:02

Sidney Goodison in the 30s, but that

race to the four minute secured the

0:09:020:09:09

mile as a British athletics

institution and we have a massive

0:09:090:09:14

debt of gratitude.

And a rich

heritage.

It is a rich heritage.

0:09:140:09:20

Steve is right. When I joined my

athletics club and dads to say I

0:09:200:09:24

wanted to run the mile, people

referred to him.

We should put into

0:09:240:09:31

context the work of his pacemakers

and how it was at team effort.

They

0:09:310:09:35

were great friends for the whole

life. Chris and Chris, he always

0:09:350:09:40

said I just took the credit for a

great piece of teamwork. They always

0:09:400:09:45

said they could not have taken that

are run and run the 3.50 nine. I

0:09:450:09:50

love that they became such good

friends and they were intrinsically

0:09:500:09:54

linked.

It feels to me like

conquering Everest going to the

0:09:540:09:59

South Pole, it is one of those

iconic things that man does.

In

0:09:590:10:05

large proper preparation was spent

in Scotland, walking and climbing

0:10:050:10:10

are just becoming great, great

friends. -- in large part of their

0:10:100:10:14

preparation. When we sadly lost

Chris chat away, it deeply affected

0:10:140:10:19

Roger. They were close friends.

He

said he did not hear anything beyond

0:10:190:10:25

three when the time was announced.

He talks about that moment, and Seb

0:10:250:10:33

will say this. I have met, he has

met, and I am sure thousands of

0:10:330:10:38

people around the country will say I

was there or knew somebody who was

0:10:380:10:42

there, that would probably add up to

100 or 150,000.

I think there were

0:10:420:10:49

around 15,000 people die. So many

people have a story. Roger is the

0:10:490:10:53

one in the middle of it all. I met

so many people over the years that

0:10:530:10:59

say the announcement was drowned out

by the cheering of the crowd. I

0:10:590:11:03

think it was voted one of the most

iconic moments of the 20th century,

0:11:030:11:07

rightly so.

It has been an

inspiration to athletics in sport,

0:11:070:11:13

the people have talked about the

four-minute mile in the context of

0:11:130:11:16

science or the arts, if you if you

think you can or you think you

0:11:160:11:19

aren't, you are probably right.

It

is one of our biggest national

0:11:190:11:23

moments. It is such a great sadness,

a national sadness. We have lost a

0:11:230:11:31

friend on the sport has lost a

senior partner.

He will continue --

0:11:310:11:35

it will continue to be an

inspirational moment for people

0:11:350:11:38

beyond the sport. Looking at the

list of times you guys run the mile

0:11:380:11:42

and held world records in, those

small increments, it is still in the

0:11:420:11:48

40s, within 40 seconds. He took his

own time down over the couple of

0:11:480:11:53

years beforehand and what must have

gone on in his mind.

He was a great

0:11:530:11:57

student even in the later years. I

was always amazed about how Internet

0:11:570:12:01

she still was with who was doing

what, particularly in the mile. He

0:12:010:12:07

was a scientist at heart, I guess.

Was it middle distance running in

0:12:070:12:14

particular?

I invited him to sit

next to me at the 1500 metre final

0:12:140:12:17

in London. He was reading the race

in exactly the way you were. He was

0:12:170:12:26

in touch, he had very feisty views.

He was a very challenging person,

0:12:260:12:31

but in a very good way. He wanted to

know about training methods,

0:12:310:12:37

altitude, why were people running

quicker and why are they not running

0:12:370:12:40

even quicker.

A cup of tea with

Roger was a trip to the osteopath,

0:12:400:12:44

you were really challenge.

You are

lucky I am privileged to have spent

0:12:440:12:49

the time with someone who has meant

so much to this country and the

0:12:490:12:53

world of sport. -- you are lucky and

privileged.

0:12:530:12:58

Thank you for sharing.

0:12:580:12:59

privileged.

Thank you for sharing. We have a

0:12:590:13:01

packed agenda, as always, on this

final day of the World Indoor

0:13:010:13:05

Championships. The men's pole vault

is coming into the arena, the

0:13:050:13:10

competition starts shortly. The

hurdles semifinals on the track

0:13:100:13:14

first up, featuring Andy policy of

Great Britain and Aries Merritt. The

0:13:140:13:19

women's long jump, I think we'll be

one of the events of these

0:13:190:13:23

championships. Ivana Spanovic, we

saw her in the indoors in Belgrade,

0:13:230:13:31

just supreme. How will Brittney

Reese respond? The 3,000-metre men's

0:13:310:13:34

final is at 3:35pm. Shelayna

Oskan-Clarke is going in a wide-open

0:13:340:13:41

eight injured metre final. --

800-metre final.

0:13:410:13:49

In between,

0:13:490:13:55

In between, hopefully Andy Pozzi

will have made it safely through to

0:13:560:13:58

the men's hurdles. We will also be

showing highlights of the London

0:13:580:14:04

Half. Mo Farah was first across the

line, we will see how that happened.

0:14:040:14:08

Let's go to the commentary box with

my lovely colleague Colin Jackson.

0:14:080:14:12

Good afternoon.

Good afternoon.

We're looking forward to

0:14:120:14:17

Good afternoon.

Good afternoon.

We're looking forward to seeing the

0:14:170:14:18

men's hurdles Andy Pozzi featuring

in the same heat as a Aries Merritt,

0:14:180:14:23

who you feel is perhaps the main

challenger?

It is interesting.

0:14:230:14:30

Jeopardy is involved courtesy of the

five barriers they had to take. And

0:14:300:14:34

he was very good yesterday. He got

out of the blocks really sharply.

0:14:340:14:39

And think about a Aries Merritt as a

main rival. Out the blocks very

0:14:390:14:43

quickly. Remember, he is just

getting over his kidney transplant.

0:14:430:14:50

I am seeing a really good,

competitive opportunity for areas to

0:14:500:14:53

get back on the global stage as a

winner. He has the capability, for

0:14:530:14:58

sure. -- a really good, competitive

opportunity for Aries

0:14:580:15:05

sure. -- a really good, competitive

opportunity for Aries.

But Andy has

0:15:050:15:07

looked very relaxed, really enjoying

these championships? Agazzi feels he

0:15:070:15:11

is in great shape, which is most

important. He worked really hard

out

0:15:110:15:16

of the blocks to get himself set up,

worked hard from every single

0:15:160:15:20

barrier. But sometimes causes you to

get a bit close. That is what

0:15:200:15:24

happened here. He literally had to

jump a bit higher than he would

0:15:240:15:30

necessarily like, but that will be

fixed by doing skill work in the

0:15:300:15:35

warm up. I think he should have a

flawless entrance into that final.

0:15:350:15:43

Let's hope so, and joining me in the

studio is Denise Lewis and Michael

0:15:440:15:49

Johnson. If I can take you away from

the hurdles for a second, and a word

0:15:490:15:54

about Sir Roger Bannister. As a

former world record-holder yourself,

0:15:540:15:59

you have been in that elite group

but the four minute mile in the

0:15:590:16:03

context of almost sporting history

and in terms of what mankind can

0:16:030:16:07

achieve, it was such a pioneering

moment, wasn't it?

It really was and

0:16:070:16:13

it goes beyond what he accomplished

with the 4-minute mile goes beyond

0:16:130:16:20

athletics. This was man on the moon

level stuff, it was amazing. Every

0:16:200:16:25

athlete owes a debt of gratitude to

Sir Roger Bannister for what he

0:16:250:16:29

meant to the sport and bringing the

sport outside of athletics and into

0:16:290:16:33

the world consciousness. And what

human performance is all about and

0:16:330:16:39

pushing boundaries. From that point,

you started to have Bob Beamon and

0:16:390:16:45

those sort of moment and Roger

Bannister is right at the top.

And

0:16:450:16:49

at the vanguard of that in so many

ways. Steve Cram made a great point

0:16:490:16:54

and said two years before we

wouldn't have seen it because we

0:16:540:16:58

wouldn't have had that footage. The

confluence of events that happened

0:16:580:17:02

that day, the weather, the

pacemakers, everything came together

0:17:020:17:07

and now in our age of being able to

see anything, whatever, it's almost

0:17:070:17:12

impossible to imagine what that was

like.

Completely, but you said it,

0:17:120:17:19

pioneering, ground-breaking, and as

a developing athlete he was one of

0:17:190:17:23

the leaders for us coming in as a

14-year-old really understanding

0:17:230:17:30

what he has done for British sport

and international sport. I never had

0:17:300:17:36

the honour of meeting him directly

but he was in that consciousness. He

0:17:360:17:40

represented endeavour and grit and

determination. That is what you hold

0:17:400:17:46

dear as a British athlete.

I have

read about it so many times over the

0:17:460:17:51

years, the idea that suddenly he got

wind of the Australian Lundy was

0:17:510:17:56

about to do it. It is such a magical

moment in history, isn't it?

0:17:560:18:05

Absolutely and that is that

competitiveness, you want to be the

0:18:050:18:08

first. It really did set up for

subsequent athletes the idea of

0:18:080:18:13

doing something special and

continuing to push boundaries of

0:18:130:18:16

human achievement. Like I mentioned

Bob Beamon, that was special for me

0:18:160:18:20

as well. Nobody had ever done the

200m and 400m at that level before

0:18:200:18:29

and that was special for me, pushing

the boundaries. It was inspired over

0:18:290:18:34

the decades by Sir Roger Bannister

and the 4-minute mile.

Let's get out

0:18:340:18:39

onto the track because it is the 60m

men's hurdles semifinals time and

0:18:390:18:44

Andrew Cotter is in the commentary

box.

0:18:440:18:49

COMMENTATOR: Stephen King going in

the first of these semifinals. A

0:18:490:18:55

very

0:18:550:18:55

the first of these semifinals. A

very tough line-up for him to try to

0:18:550:18:57

overcome.

0:18:570:19:04

overcome. Eaton is one of the

favourites.

0:19:040:19:10

favourites. Hough has just won the

Australian title for the fourth

0:19:140:19:16

time.

0:19:160:19:21

time. Manga of France, the French

champion. There is Eaton, ran 7.43

0:19:220:19:33

to win the US title. Baji, the

bronze-medallist in London. Look out

0:19:330:19:45

for this guy, 30 now but making his

mark on the world stage.

0:19:450:19:55

mark on the world stage. David King

gets his welcome. 7.63 in France

0:19:560:20:02

last month, needs to find a time

close to that or perhaps even

0:20:020:20:06

quicker, and Smet of the Netherlands

on the outside. Al-Malod drifted

0:20:060:20:16

into the lane on his left in

qualifying. He was clear in the

0:20:160:20:24

first round because the man on his

left was way behind but there could

0:20:240:20:32

be a little bit of sharing of

airspace in this heat so look out

0:20:320:20:37

for that.

0:20:370:20:43

for that. Two to go through

automatically over the three heats,

0:20:450:20:48

two fastest losers.

0:20:480:20:53

At the moment Eaton going strongly.

Well, just about on the line, Manga

0:21:000:21:09

takes it from Eaton. Great run from

the French champion.

0:21:090:21:17

the French champion. We were all

looking to Eaton. Manga came through

0:21:170:21:25

very well indeed to take the

victory. A good run from Manga,

0:21:250:21:31

David King further down the field,

but Manga and Eaton are the two who

0:21:310:21:39

will go through.

Yes, if they didn't

make any mistakes it was going to be

0:21:390:21:43

nearly clear for them. They were the

quality of this field.

0:21:430:21:51

quality of this field. Eaton started

making mistakes, and Manga came

0:21:510:21:56

through meaning he will get a better

laying in the final.

We want to look

0:21:560:22:02

at David King as well. Look how

close they are coming.

And if you

0:22:020:22:09

clash, arms will be tying up between

each other and that's the reason

0:22:090:22:14

that I say when you share the

airspace it is a problem for

0:22:140:22:17

athletes because you feel like you

are physically assaulted. It might

0:22:170:22:21

sound dramatic but it is the way you

field -- the way you feel.

The

0:22:210:22:35

French have Lagarde so the challenge

might be strong in the final. Manga

0:22:350:22:42

and Eaton going through is the

automatic qualifiers.

0:22:420:22:50

and Eaton going through is the

automatic qualifiers.

0:22:500:22:54

David, sixth place, are you happy

with your performance?

Not really, I

0:22:540:22:58

sat on the second or third hurdle.

It is disappointing because I wanted

0:22:580:23:03

to come out in the semis and run

better than in the heat. Sometimes

0:23:030:23:08

it doesn't come together but it is

motivation to keep fighting.

As you

0:23:080:23:13

say, next time it could be the

Commonwealth Games, what have you

0:23:130:23:16

learned from this process is that

you can take forward?

It has all

0:23:160:23:21

been a really amazing experience.

For me running on two different days

0:23:210:23:25

I've never really done before in

heats and semis so I've learned to

0:23:250:23:29

handle that a little bit or at least

what to work on. Any international

0:23:290:23:40

experience is really good so it will

do me some good.

Thanks for speaking

0:23:400:23:43

to us.

Andy Pozzi going in the next of the

0:23:430:23:48

semifinals and it's so important,

there will be a final in two hours

0:23:480:23:54

and 20 minutes and he cannot leave

anything behind because you have to

0:23:540:23:58

get in the top two.

Yes, you have to

treat this as a final. Knowing

0:23:580:24:03

what's to come, he will have trained

for this understanding that you have

0:24:030:24:07

a quick recovery, you have to come

back and warm up again so he will

0:24:070:24:12

absolutely attack this as a final

knowing he cannot leave anything on

0:24:120:24:17

the table.

He has been here before,

he knows what he has got to do apart

0:24:170:24:21

from studying his mind and not

overthinking it. He is competitive,

0:24:210:24:27

his good. He just has to do his

thing.

He's in great shape, the

0:24:270:24:34

joint captain of the British team

and his fellow captain of course is

0:24:340:24:38

also in action today. It could be a

good day for the captains, Steve

0:24:380:24:42

Cram.

COMMENTATOR: Absolutely, and I know

0:24:420:24:47

everyone

0:24:470:24:47

COMMENTATOR: Absolutely, and I know

everyone talks about leading by

0:24:470:24:49

example but captains do have that

little bit of extra responsibility

0:24:490:24:52

to perform well. Andy is just going

to make sure here that he gets into

0:24:520:25:00

the final later with a solid

performance. I think as long as he

0:25:000:25:05

runs something like he ran in the

qualification he will be fine here.

0:25:050:25:12

Merritt, the Olympic champion in

2012, world indoor champion and

0:25:120:25:16

record holder in that year as well,

Merritt is showing signs of getting

0:25:160:25:21

back to his very best totally in

terms of times this year. Didn't

0:25:210:25:27

look quite so sharp in qualification

but he's a great competitor,

0:25:270:25:31

Merritt. So he goes in lane six,

Pozzi is in four. Only the first two

0:25:310:25:40

guaranteed, the fastest loser time,

to keep an eye on that.

0:25:400:25:53

Here is Constantino, the

23-year-old. A season's best of

0:26:060:26:15

7.60. If he is anywhere near that he

might have a chance of fastest loser

0:26:150:26:24

spot. Another one who improved his

personal best in qualification,

0:26:240:26:29

22-year-old from Cuba, Iribane.

0:26:290:26:35

22-year-old from Cuba, Iribane. This

is his moment, the European indoor

0:26:350:26:39

champion on two occasions has been

out of the

0:26:390:26:46

out of the medals. Very experienced

Greek athlete next to him.

0:26:460:26:56

Greek athlete next to him. Alongside

him, Merritt, as I was just

0:26:570:26:59

mentioning.

0:26:590:27:08

One or two false starts, of course

most pointedly CJ Ujah and it is not

0:27:110:27:18

commentator's curse here, I just

want to get that out of the way so

0:27:180:27:21

there's going to be no false start

here. Just nice, solid, clean

0:27:210:27:33

performance from Pozzi. He and

Merritt are the two expected to go

0:27:340:27:39

through here, and keep an eye on

Iribane in lane three.

0:27:390:27:50

Merritt just taking a little longer

to settle in.

0:27:520:28:03

A good start next to Pozzi. That is

a storming run! 7.45, just outside

0:28:110:28:21

his personal best. Well, I said he

only needed to be as good as he was

0:28:210:28:31

in qualification, he was better. Not

sure his start was quite as good but

0:28:310:28:34

once he got into his running, the

start from the guy next to him, the

0:28:340:28:42

big tall Cuban Iribane, he did get

the second place ahead of Merritt

0:28:420:28:48

but what about Andy Pozzi here,

Colin Jackson, very good indeed.

0:28:480:28:53

Yes, he was under pressure in his

mind to make sure he qualified well.

0:28:530:28:57

He has been desperate to get a fast

run, and to prove to everybody what

0:28:570:29:02

great shape he is in. He popped out

of the blocks, he didn't really

0:29:020:29:06

drive out but he prepared himself

well. He came off the first hurdle

0:29:060:29:11

nice and strong and dynamic and kept

a cool head. He didn't press, he

0:29:110:29:18

just knew -- just did what he knew

he was capable of doing. He also ran

0:29:180:29:26

himself a season's best and get

under the 7.50 mark. Just a nice,

0:29:260:29:33

controlled race. He knew he was

pulling himself away and if you look

0:29:330:29:36

at his face he is very relaxed, very

chilled. Have a look head-on, at the

0:29:360:29:43

right of our screen. Works hard into

the first hurdle but knows that he

0:29:430:29:47

needs to clear it well with no

mistakes whatsoever. In a nice

0:29:470:29:54

straight line so he can work

straight off it. Look at his face

0:29:540:29:58

after he comes off this barrier,

very easy.

He knew it, he knew he

0:29:580:30:04

had run well and very quick. That

has put him in prime pole position.

0:30:040:30:10

We have one more semi to come. Eaton

has run a tad quicker this year but

0:30:100:30:15

didn't look anywhere near as good in

the previous semi.

No, Andy is

0:30:150:30:20

looking very good. Of course the

final is to come and the person I

0:30:200:30:24

would say it would be his real

danger comes up next.

0:30:240:30:30

STUDIO: A very impressive run from

Andy Pozzi.

He seemed to pull the

0:30:360:30:39

way between hurdles two and three

and increase incrementally between

0:30:390:30:44

each hurdle. Did not have a bad

start.

Not at all. Looking at him

0:30:440:30:51

versus the other athletes other than

Aries Merritt, he was there, Merritt

0:30:510:30:54

versus the other athletes other than

Aries Merritt, he was there, Merritt

0:30:540:30:54

got a very good start. And you did

what he needed to do, solid all the

0:30:540:31:00

way through. I don't think he

touched any hurdles committee was

0:31:000:31:03

not at risk. A very clean race and

he picked up speed in between the

0:31:030:31:08

hurdles. Denise, you would know a

bit more than I do but it looked

0:31:080:31:17

fantastic to me.

It was a pleasure

to watch. Sprint hurdling is about

0:31:170:31:20

frequency. The rhythm into those

barriers and off, it is all about

0:31:200:31:28

driving that trail leg of each

hurdle. Like Mike says, a great

0:31:280:31:34

start from him. Really silky smooth.

We know this is what he can deliver.

0:31:340:31:40

Will Sutton .46 be enough? Will he

had to push harder in the final? --

0:31:400:31:49

will 7.46 be enough?

Do you do not

need to push harder. You want other

0:31:490:31:54

people to make mistakes. He feels

good, keep in mind fresh.

Look at

0:31:540:31:59

the confidence as he addresses the

camera. He is

0:31:590:32:02

the confidence as he addresses the

camera. He is in a good place.

He is

0:32:020:32:06

running with great confidence. I ran

into his brother last night outside

0:32:060:32:10

the hotel, who introduced in cells,

he said he is in a really good

0:32:100:32:15

place, and join being captain and is

really confident.

0:32:150:32:22

really confident. He has won the

prelim, won the semifinal and he

0:32:220:32:25

should be confident going into the

final.

Andrew Cotter, we saw him

0:32:250:32:30

petting a leader L's dog, Ben. He

was very relaxed.

0:32:300:32:34

petting a leader L's dog, Ben. He

was very relaxed.

Ben was relaxed up

0:32:340:32:38

meeting Andrew Cotter. Lagarde

looked pretty useful yesterday, so

0:32:380:32:43

many injuries, blighted by a foot

injury. Hurdlers run the gamut of

0:32:430:32:50

injuries. This is how they line up

for the third of the semifinals. As

0:32:500:33:01

Colin highlighted, look over Ronald

Levy of Jamaica. He had his injury

0:33:010:33:08

problems last year but he might be a

threat to Pozzi.

0:33:080:33:16

threat to Pozzi. That is the Polish

champion.

0:33:160:33:22

champion. The 27-year-old from

Shanghai is one of the fastest

0:33:220:33:25

losers from the first round. Petr

Svoboda, form made European indoor

0:33:250:33:29

champion.

Pascal Martinot-Lagarde, a big

0:33:290:33:38

figure. A cruel fourth place at the

World Championships in Beijing. And

0:33:380:33:43

the Olympics in Rio. Milan

Trajkovic, made the final at the

0:33:430:33:49

Olympics in Rio.

We did not really get a chance to

0:33:490:33:56

see what Ronald Levy could do in

London. 7.49 in his indoor debut in

0:33:560:34:02

Canada last weekend. The Canadian

used to run for the States, he has

0:34:020:34:07

dual citizenship. Erik Balnuweit has

just won the German title for a

0:34:070:34:14

sixth time. Two going through

automatically, the two fastest

0:34:140:34:20

losers at the moment are Aries

Merritt, 7.60, and Gabriel

0:34:200:34:25

Constantino of Brazil, 7.60 one.

Merritt hopes he can get through the

0:34:250:34:31

big names, mustering for the final

later. That is that 5pm.

0:34:310:34:40

later. That is that 5pm. -- at 5pm.

0:34:400:34:42

Clearly away. A little twitch from

Martinot-Lagarde. He has a lot to

0:35:020:35:06

do. Martinot-Lagarde leg... Worked

so well to take second between Milan

0:35:060:35:15

Trajkovic. A simple sit down address

job. Impassive. That was quick, 7.50

0:35:150:35:21

one.

0:35:210:35:26

-- birther. Martinot-Lagarde saves

it, it was a poor start and that is

0:35:310:35:39

a whole heap of ooh la la from

Martinot-Lagarde.

Those are exactly

0:35:390:35:45

the words I was thinking, ooh la la.

He must have been thinking, what

0:35:450:35:50

have I done?! All eyes were on levy

to see what he was capable of doing.

0:35:500:36:02

The two go through on the right-hand

side, middle now,

0:36:020:36:10

side, middle now, Martinot-Lagarde

and Trajkovic.

Even though you have

0:36:100:36:16

the reputation of running fast, it

is important to deliver the

0:36:160:36:19

performances when it really matters.

Goodness gracious, Pascal had to

0:36:190:36:26

fight to get bread. Different than

in the sprint. When you are

0:36:260:36:31

sprinting, you stay low, at least

you have the time to get up. When

0:36:310:36:34

you are faced with a 3.5 foot

barrier you have to rush. He was

0:36:340:36:40

good at keeping a good, clean head.

Working his way to the field, no

0:36:400:36:45

panicking, rewarded with a season's

best.

0:36:450:36:52

best.

Trajkovic, Serbian born but

settled in Cyprus, running for

0:36:520:36:56

Cyprus. He won the Greek indoor

title. Martinot-Lagarde, this is

0:36:560:37:02

certainly throwing everything into

this just to make the final.

I am

0:37:020:37:06

smiling because I know there will be

huge panic, what's Abhay Dunn, try

0:37:060:37:12

to work it through! He is very

skilful.

Or confirmation of

0:37:120:37:16

to work it through! He is very

skilful.

Or confirmation of that

0:37:160:37:18

with the new indoor Cypriot record.

-- I know there will be huge panic,

0:37:180:37:27

what have I done?!

0:37:270:37:35

Lots of finals to come, that is at

5pm. Only the 4x400 relay after.

0:37:530:38:01

There will be a pause in proceedings

in the arena as they pay respects.

0:38:010:38:07

We expect Seb Coe to say a few words

about the sad passing of Roger

0:38:070:38:14

Bannister, which we spoke about at

the beginning of the programme.

0:38:140:38:23

the beginning of the programme. Just

to reiterate the finals that we had

0:38:240:38:24

to look forward to, Pozzi into that

60 metres final.

0:38:240:38:29

to look forward to, Pozzi into that

60 metres final.

0:38:290:38:30

The men's pole vault competition is

under way. Seven athletes have a

0:38:300:38:35

global title past or present. The

first of those that we will see is

0:38:350:38:40

Barber of Canada. Five metres 45, a

very early hate. Good clearance. A

0:38:400:38:48

good start for him.

There are world champions, Olympic

0:38:480:38:59

champions, world record holders. A

really strong field. Probably the

0:38:590:39:03

best collection of vaulters we have

seen in the history of the events in

0:39:030:39:06

this pursuit of a world title here

this afternoon. Barber has a chance.

0:39:060:39:13

He is in the mix.

This man recently broke the world

0:39:130:39:19

junior record. A very solid

clearance. 18 years of age. A

0:39:190:39:26

Swedish Baltic, you might remember

his dad, the American, he was

0:39:260:39:33

jumping in the 80s, the early 90s.

There is your world champion from

0:39:330:39:38

last summer. Very high-class, hard

stepper, another world champion

0:39:380:39:41

walking away out of shot. This man

took the title last year, really

0:39:410:39:49

enjoys competing. He stamped his

authority last summer. Unbeaten last

0:39:490:39:56

year, Sam Kendricks. Looking to get

his competition to a clean start.

0:39:560:40:07

Five 45, Kendricks goes clear. The

huge margin.

Too easy, I think, for

0:40:070:40:14

him at these early heights. Just

carrying a bit of tape around his

0:40:140:40:20

knee, probably has a bit of problem

with his patella tendon, his

0:40:200:40:25

take-off leg. It is probably just a

precaution.

Kendricks and really

0:40:250:40:32

good shape. Raphael

0:40:320:40:41

good shape. Raphael Holzdeppe,

another champion from the past. A

0:40:410:40:46

great championship performer, got

sideways Ahmad but tidied it up

0:40:460:40:49

nicely. Solid clearance, no

casualties at these early heights.

0:40:490:40:54

Getting the measure of the run-up

speed, feeling their way through

0:40:540:40:59

heights toward six metres, 5.90 as

you can see at the right of your

0:40:590:41:04

screen. Look at that clearance from

the German, that is enormous.

He

0:41:040:41:10

works off the top of the pole so

well.

0:41:100:41:17

well.

At the world-record holder is

yet to start. Here are your

0:41:210:41:26

athletes.

0:41:260:41:33

I mentioned the French world

champion. Lisek is a double world

0:41:400:41:47

medallist. It will be a great

spectacle, this pole vault

0:41:470:41:50

competition. He is not the tallest,

he is not the strongest but he is

0:41:500:41:57

slick and capable when he gets it

right. His world record is six

0:41:570:42:03

metres and 16 centimetres,

Lavillenie. Konstantinos Filippidis

0:42:030:42:11

of Greece, the world Indoor

Championships when 4014. He has won

0:42:110:42:19

this title before, and goes well. --

the world indoor champion in 2014.

0:42:190:42:32

Shawn Barber, world champion in

2015. Fast on the approach. He takes

0:42:320:42:38

a long run-up. He just decelerated.

I think you are right. Slowed down

0:42:380:42:45

into the box, did not quite get into

the position he wants for the

0:42:450:42:49

take-off. That is the pole back in

the can, checks where his left foot

0:42:490:42:53

take office. Realises where he is

under board the jump.

Six-metre

0:42:530:43:02

Voltaire when he gets it right, is

Barber. -- six-metre vaulter. There

0:43:020:43:13

will be a pause in all competitions

to pay respects to Sir Roger

0:43:130:43:18

Bannister, who sadly passed away

yesterday. As you can see, the clip

0:43:180:43:25

of that incredible achievement in

1954 at the track in Oxford where he

0:43:250:43:31

broke the four minute smile, the

first man to do it, running 359.4. I

0:43:310:43:39

am sure many people in the arena

today for the matters and

0:43:390:43:44

inspirational moment. I do not just

mean the athletes, I mean

0:43:440:43:49

spectators. Any athletics fans would

know who Rogers -- Sir Roger

0:43:490:43:55

Bannister was and what he meant.

Sir Roger was a European and

0:43:550:44:00

Commonwealth world medallist, but he

will be best remembered for his

0:44:000:44:05

achievement on the 6th of May, 1954.

Seb Coe is on the track with other

0:44:050:44:09

dignitaries from the IAAF. Jeff

Wightman is explaining everything

0:44:090:44:16

that happens on that great stay. --

happened on that great stay.

0:44:160:44:23

It was as much a psychological

barrier as physical. His

0:44:230:44:28

achievements and legendary kindness

transcended sport and inspired

0:44:280:44:32

future generations of British

distance runners.

0:44:320:44:37

On this day, in Britain and

especially in the world of

0:44:370:44:41

athletics, ladies and gentlemen, we

remember the great Sir Roger

0:44:410:44:44

Bannister.

APPLAUSE

0:44:440:44:49

APPLAUSE

0:45:010:45:09

Thank you, everybody.

A nice

response from this capacity crowd in

0:45:300:45:37

the Birmingham indoor arena, and

seven of the IAAF council members

0:45:370:45:45

you saw there. Sadly missed, Sir

Roger Bannister.

0:45:450:45:52

you saw there. Sadly missed, Sir

Roger Bannister.

0:45:520:45:57

Another great field event

0:45:570:46:04

Another great field event under way,

Nettey the first athlete to set a

0:46:040:46:07

mark, the Commonwealth indoor

record-holder. The chance to set

0:46:070:46:14

that marker. Somewhere in excess of

6.50, 6.60 to give the rest of the

0:46:140:46:23

field something to think about. Her

personal best is 6.62. Trying to get

0:46:230:46:31

that run up right. A reasonable

start for the Canadian.

0:46:310:46:44

Bekh of the Ukraine. Fast on the

approach, good on the board. It is

0:46:490:46:55

over six metres. A foul on that

particular job.

0:46:550:47:00

The next event on the track is the

final of the men's 3000 metres.

0:47:000:47:05

There may be a chance of a clean

sweep by one nation, three

0:47:050:47:10

Ethiopians going here and certainly

three who are incredibly strong

0:47:100:47:14

contenders.

0:47:140:47:21

contenders. Barega, the very

talented youngster. And the

0:47:210:47:30

defending champion, Kejelcha, in the

line-up. They will get their

0:47:300:47:37

introductions to the crowd. This

could be a very interesting race.

0:47:370:47:42

Missing the US champion, a myriad of

athletes who was disqualified.

0:47:420:47:52

Bronze in the 5,000m in Rio, and

medallist at World Championships as

0:47:520:47:57

well. Oakley of New Zealand, 7.47

this season and run pretty well in

0:47:570:48:08

his first round to get into the top

four. Barega only turned 18 in

0:48:080:48:16

January and ran in northern France

recently and that was his first run

0:48:160:48:20

indoors.

0:48:200:48:28

indoors. Birgen with victory in

Glasgow, preferred to go for the

0:48:280:48:33

3000.

0:48:330:48:38

3000. Bouhin of Italy. Kiplangat.

Both he and Barega are huge talents.

0:48:390:49:00

The USA does have one representative

here, another Kenyan who now runs

0:49:020:49:08

for the US Army and for the United

States. He was advanced after being

0:49:080:49:13

a fastest loser.

0:49:130:49:19

a fastest loser. Essalhi. Kejelcha

warming up with a smile, still just

0:49:200:49:33

20 but such a familiar figure, the

defending champion.

0:49:330:49:40

defending champion. Bleistein came

through as one of the fastest

0:49:440:49:47

losers. And another Ethiopian,

Balew, checking the one-way system

0:49:470:50:01

and a leisurely jog. So Paula

Radcliffe alongside for this one.

0:50:010:50:05

It's fascinating. We always have so

many young talents involved often

0:50:050:50:10

from Ethiopia and Kenya but Barega

looks the real deal.

Yes, he does.

0:50:100:50:16

Many times we see these 18-year-olds

come out of Ethiopia and race

0:50:160:50:22

astonishingly well but the

difference is Barega seems like he's

0:50:220:50:26

learning and progressing with every

race and he seems to be putting that

0:50:260:50:30

into action and really showing the

same promise we saw back with Haile

0:50:300:50:36

Gebrselassie.

0:50:360:50:41

Gebrselassie.

Best wishes to Andrew

Butchart, who continues his

0:50:410:50:45

convalescence with a broken foot.

The final of the men's 3000 metres

0:50:450:50:51

under way, a reminder that US came

with high hopes for Paul Chelimo but

0:50:510:51:02

just one port on the infield in

qualifying and he was disqualified.

0:51:020:51:10

Some people consider a lot of the

qualification is harsh but the rules

0:51:100:51:13

have been strictly adhered to at

these championships and some big

0:51:130:51:17

names have suffered.

It's definitely

had an impact on the quality of the

0:51:170:51:21

field in the final and maybe it is

something that needs to be looked

0:51:210:51:24

at, the nature of indoor racing

needs to be respected more and maybe

0:51:240:51:29

a different set of rules for indoor

racing as opposed to outdoors. But

0:51:290:51:33

we will see if the team tactics come

into play.

Not raising much at the

0:51:330:51:39

moment, sort of trotting around

slowly so we often wonder who might

0:51:390:51:43

change the pace.

We know that

Bleistein did it in the heat. It is

0:51:430:51:54

a different prospect in the final

and the main protagonists are all at

0:51:540:52:00

the back, the three Ethiopians. They

are the ones... Kiplangat now moves

0:52:000:52:04

to the front.

It's interesting when

people look at national vests and

0:52:040:52:13

say they must be working as a team.

0:52:130:52:25

Some of them are part of different

training setups.

There is an a

0:52:280:52:33

different coach here as far as I'm

concerned. The Kenyans often

0:52:330:52:38

struggle to get their act together

to work as a team but the Ethiopians

0:52:380:52:42

tend to come into it with a plan.

Having said that it is rare to have

0:52:420:52:47

a plan that involves doing any work

in the early stages. It is usually

0:52:470:52:51

reacting to something the others

throw down. We have seen they are

0:52:510:52:56

not prepared to so it is looking for

somebody's nerve to snap and

0:52:560:53:01

somebody to decide to do something

about it and put some work in.

0:53:010:53:07

Mechal could challenge with a decent

finish. It is still very pedestrian,

0:53:070:53:16

you can always tell when it is close

together and congested, and this is

0:53:160:53:21

when people get nervous as well.

That's why we see three Ethiopians

0:53:210:53:25

at the back staying out of any

potential trouble. Stay away from

0:53:250:53:33

all of that and bide your time.

It's

almost like they are a little bit

0:53:330:53:37

lost. They need to start reacting

because they are just turning it

0:53:370:53:46

straight into a 1,500m race. Birgen

have the choice coming into these

0:53:460:53:51

championships if he wanted to race

in the 1,500m or the 3000 metres.

0:53:510:53:57

There are lots who can do that but

there are also lots who can't so why

0:53:570:54:03

don't they give that they go here

because they might as well have

0:54:030:54:06

continued their warm up inside.

0:54:060:54:11

continued their warm up inside.

Now

it just starts to lift a bit,

0:54:150:54:18

everyone is on guard, everyone is

watching. Kejelcha having to go very

0:54:180:54:22

wide round the outside as Mechal

lifts it. The place has suddenly

0:54:220:54:33

quickened.

Yes, we were talking

about Barega learning with every

0:54:330:54:36

race, I think he made another

discovery there that you have got to

0:54:360:54:41

be alert. If you are going to jog

round at that pays you have got to

0:54:410:54:45

be ready to react because when

somebody does, they will put the

0:54:450:54:48

hammer down hard and start to break

up the field.

And here comes Barega

0:54:480:54:52

moving round the outside.

0:54:520:55:00

moving round the outside. As the

pace picked up, it now seems to have

0:55:000:55:03

slowed a little again but Barega

comes into third place. A little bit

0:55:030:55:08

of barging. It was Oakley just

clearing away for himself on the

0:55:080:55:13

inside, I think that was fair

enough. The pace has now studied so

0:55:130:55:18

everybody has come back together

again.

Yes, I think Mechal wanted to

0:55:180:55:26

react and raise the pace. To pick it

up a little bit and aim for somebody

0:55:260:55:30

else to come by and take that on and

that hasn't happened so we are

0:55:300:55:36

almost back to stage one. Somebody

else will try another surge, then

0:55:360:55:41

they will react again, then they

will start to get mixed up over

0:55:410:55:45

which will be the real surge when

somebody means business but this

0:55:450:55:48

could be it now.

In 1,500m race, the

pace and jostling is dangerous. Look

0:55:480:55:56

at Kejelcha on the outside. The

three Ethiopians hit the front. The

0:55:560:56:04

United States athlete coming

through.

0:56:040:56:19

Yes, holding his hand down, saying

don't push me.

So Kejelcha now

0:56:190:56:29

leading, that all familiar figure we

have seen for the last couple of

0:56:290:56:31

years often shadowing Mo Farah on

his way to victory.

0:56:310:56:40

his way to victory. Kenya now

running for the United States and

0:56:400:56:44

two Kenyans beside him. Mechal has

muscled his way in. The Ethiopian

0:56:440:56:50

drifting back to fourth from the

back but everyone still very much

0:56:500:56:53

involved in this race.

Yes, but

there's a lot of pushing and

0:56:530:56:57

shoving. Barega is badly boxed, but

boxed by his own countrymen so they

0:56:570:57:02

might do him a favour and let him

out. You can see him sitting behind

0:57:020:57:09

Bouhin. Kejelcha is controlling it

from the front and we are almost

0:57:090:57:13

starting to see a relay. Is the next

Ethiopians going to take a turn?

700

0:57:130:57:20

metres remaining and only now the

strain beginning to be felt by

0:57:200:57:25

Bleistein at the back. Barega

0:57:250:57:32

Bleistein at the back. Barega passed

Kejelcha who responds and keeps him

0:57:330:57:35

at bay. Only now the strain

beginning to show.

0:57:350:57:42

beginning to show. Kiplangat coming

round the outside, who had that fast

0:57:420:57:46

finish in the qualifying, and now a

real race.

I think Mechal is badly

0:57:460:57:53

boxed, he might be able to work his

way out of it but he might find it

0:57:530:57:57

tough. The Ethiopians might have had

a plan coming into it but very much

0:57:570:58:02

they want to come through.

400m

remaining and Kejelcha turns the

0:58:020:58:13

screw and lift the pace even

further. And Kipchirchir, who only

0:58:130:58:18

scraped into the final, starts to

feel the heat. The two Kenyans

0:58:180:58:25

shadowing just behind Birgen but is

the Ethiopians looking for a clean

0:58:250:58:29

sweep. Birgen starts to make his

move now.

He looks good. Mechal

0:58:290:58:37

looks desperate.

The bell sounds and

the noise from the crowd lifting.

0:58:370:58:45

Can Barega get back in fourth place,

can company macro start to kick?

0:58:450:58:52

Mechal trying to keep pace. Birgen

running hard. Kejelcha, winner two

0:58:520:58:59

years ago, looking for world indoor

title again and he will have it by a

0:58:590:59:03

distance. It is Barega who comes

through, just, and Birgen is close

0:59:030:59:10

for bronze. No doubt about the

winner, once again it is a dance of

0:59:100:59:20

celebration from Kejelcha, world

indoor champion over 3000 metres. A

0:59:200:59:24

slow time but a very good race.

In

the end he managed to squeak inside

0:59:240:59:32

a personal best. It was fierce and

fast and furious in the closing

0:59:320:59:37

stages and the man who reacted the

best super surges and put himself in

0:59:370:59:41

the best place was Kejelcha and he

wasn't willing yet to step aside and

0:59:410:59:46

allow Barega to come through, and

Barega have to fight hard to get

0:59:460:59:50

into second place.

It was very close

for bronze. Is any Ethiopian 1-2-3?

0:59:501:00:02

Kejelcha a long way clear, but have

a look at this, Paula.

Yes, it's

1:00:021:00:08

like he realised in the closing few

strides he had the chance of making

1:00:081:00:12

it any Ethiopian clean sweep at the

medals, I don't think we've have

1:00:121:00:16

that yet in the championships. He

didn't quite manage it, Birgen

1:00:161:00:20

managed to keep running enough but

it was the disappointment of seeing

1:00:201:00:24

the silver medal snatched from him

and he backed off a little bit too

1:00:241:00:27

much and you cannot do that when you

have people finishing as desperately

1:00:271:00:32

as Mechal.

1:00:321:00:37

We were asked to pick our athletes

for the future. Cachopa has a bright

1:00:371:00:43

future ahead of him. Once again

defending his title. -- Yomif

1:00:431:00:51

Kejelcha has a bright future ahead

of him.

1:00:511:01:00

Back to this women's long jump

final, we saw Christabel Nettey of

1:01:001:01:08

Canada, six metres 49. Nobody has

really woken up yet. Quanesha Burks,

1:01:081:01:13

the runner-up in the US trials. That

is a bigger effort. The white flag

1:01:131:01:21

is raised as a valid jump. Chasing

bad lead of six metres 49. If her

1:01:211:01:27

left hand lands outside the pits...

I am not happy with that.

You have

1:01:271:01:32

raised a very interesting point. It

is a pity we can get a sideways

1:01:321:01:38

view. If that hand lands to further

back... She has opened up with a

1:01:381:01:45

personal best, but if that hand is

landing further back than her feet,

1:01:451:01:49

the jump ought to be measured from

birth.

6.81 was followed, taking the

1:01:491:01:56

lead. Her team-mate wreath, a little

stutter. -- her team-mate, Reese.

1:01:561:02:07

She crowded the board a little bit.

If you watch Brittney Reese, she

1:02:071:02:12

shortens her strides to increase

frequency speed. She really attacks

1:02:121:02:16

over the last six metres. Six

strides in, she really attacks.

1:02:161:02:25

6.76, just shy of the lead-off

Burks. The last jumper of the first

1:02:251:02:32

round is the Ivana Spanovic. The

European indoor champion was

1:02:321:02:35

incredible last year. She was third

in Glasgow last weekend. Spanovic,

1:02:351:02:41

first round.

That looks really flat

as a take-off, but she leans back.

1:02:411:02:51

It is a legal jump. She is

efficient, runs across the board.

1:02:511:02:57

Does not get a lot of lift.

Did not

get the hide, but it is a long way

1:02:571:03:03

into the pits.

1:03:031:03:09

into the pits. This takes into first

place, 6.89, at the end of round

1:03:091:03:13

one.

What a night it was last night. It

1:03:131:03:21

was a night of drama on and off the

track. Disqualifications and

1:03:211:03:25

medallists waiting for their

opportunity to get onto the rostrum.

1:03:251:03:31

Earlier Giles thought he might get a

medal in the 800, and he did not. We

1:03:311:03:35

did not have time to present the

medals for the 60 metres, and what a

1:03:351:03:39

race that was.

Everybody was talking about what

1:03:391:03:45

Christian Coleman could do when he

came to these championships, and the

1:03:451:03:49

world-record holder did not let

anybody down. The world number one

1:03:491:03:55

from last year has had to play

second fiddle to Christian Coleman

1:03:551:04:01

this year, and he was pipped for the

silver

1:04:011:04:10

silver medal by Chan of China. -- by

Bingtian Su of China.

1:04:141:04:30

Bingtian Su of China. You could

argue this is the fastest official

1:04:301:04:37

sea-level time. The world-record to

set a couple of weeks ago was in

1:04:371:04:41

Albuquerque, at altitude. -- the

world record he set a couple of

1:04:411:04:48

weeks ago. 6.30 seven. An incredible

performance from Christian Coleman,

1:04:481:04:53

winning his first global title. A

silver medal outdoors last year

1:04:531:04:57

behind Justin Gatlin. This time he

is the champion.

1:04:571:05:06

NATIONAL ANTHEM OF THE USA PLAYS.

1:05:111:05:22

NATIONAL ANTHEM

OF THE USA CONTINUES.

1:05:331:05:41

Five gold medals for the USA

yesterday. They will hope for more

1:06:191:06:23

today. For the time being, Christian

Coleman can concentrate on the

1:06:231:06:28

summer season ahead. The World

Championships and the Olympics to

1:06:281:06:32

come. Can he turn an indoor title

into an outdoor one over the next

1:06:321:06:37

couple of years? STUDIO: Michael

Johnson, in answer to Steve, is he

1:06:371:06:41

the forerunner, the man they will be

chasing?

I am not ready to say that.

1:06:411:06:46

If you remember back two years, the

Olympic Games, Andree Degrassi was

1:06:461:06:52

the heir apparent to Usain Bolt,

before that was Andre Joubert 's C

1:06:521:07:00

and Trey von who were tied. They

have both

1:07:001:07:04

and Trey von who were tied. They

have both suffered injuries under

1:07:041:07:05

coming back. What we are in store

for is a real treat over the 100

1:07:051:07:10

metres as opposed to can Usain Bolt

win it and will he break the world

1:07:101:07:13

record again, we will see some great

young sprinters who I think have the

1:07:131:07:19

ability to battle it out in those

championships and go back and forth

1:07:191:07:22

over the next couple of years. I

like Christian Coleman, I think he

1:07:221:07:28

is a fantastic talent and I think

you can win some championships

1:07:281:07:31

outdoors and take this world record

and this World Championship and

1:07:311:07:34

parlay that into success outdoors,

but it will not be easy and just

1:07:341:07:39

because he is the one we are talking

about does not leave he is

1:07:391:07:43

automatically the error apparent.

1:07:431:07:51

automatically the error apparent.

No

more global championships for the US

1:07:511:07:52

athletes, he will focus on the

Diamond League and we will see him

1:07:521:07:55

back in a couple of weeks?

We might

see him dabble in the 200 metres,

1:07:551:07:58

here's a great 200-metre winner.

1:07:581:08:06

here's a great 200-metre winner. --

here's a great 200-metre runner. I

1:08:061:08:10

think the other guys will all be

there, we might get some sense the

1:08:101:08:16

summer of what is to come.

A New

Year.

1:08:161:08:18

summer of what is to come.

A New

Year. There are two very exciting

1:08:181:08:22

field competition is under way.

Steve? COMMENTATOR: The pole voters

1:08:221:08:26

have been beavering away. Sam

Kendricks is a brilliant competitor,

1:08:261:08:32

he seems to have developed a way of

seducing his opponents into

1:08:321:08:36

believing they cannot win.

1:08:361:08:42

believing they cannot win. 5.60,

massive clearance. Perfect so far,

1:08:441:08:48

two jumps, two clearances. Five

metres 60. I suppose when you have

1:08:481:08:54

jumped 5.93, as he has this year

already, you expect that kind of

1:08:541:09:00

clearance. His campaign to take the

world indoor title is going very

1:09:001:09:05

nicely indeed. Off to a great start

for the American.

1:09:051:09:12

STUDIO: The Women's 800-metre final

is coming up shortly on the track.

1:09:121:09:17

Paula Radcliffe in the commentary

box will talk to us about Shelayna

1:09:171:09:21

Oskan-Clarke Great Britain. Looked

very good in qualifying. There is

1:09:211:09:26

quality there, when you look at the

defending indoor champion,

1:09:261:09:30

potentially the one she will have to

get close to to get into the medals,

1:09:301:09:33

it is more than achievable for her

to be on the rostrum?

It is within

1:09:331:09:39

her compass, she can take a shot. I

think the defending champion,

1:09:391:09:48

Niyonsaba, is the favourite.

1:09:481:09:55

Niyonsaba, is the favourite. I think

if Shelayna gets it right, which she

1:09:551:09:58

has proven time and time again that

she can do and get into the right

1:09:581:10:02

places in the final, if she makes

those decisions right she will have

1:10:021:10:06

a chance.

In qualifying she proved

it, she said it was not how she had

1:10:061:10:10

planned it but she responded so

well. Her experience of these big

1:10:101:10:16

championships, it is crucial in the

middle distances, your tactics?

You

1:10:161:10:21

had to be learning on your feet all

the time

1:10:211:10:28

the time and put it into place and

make those decisions quickly. That

1:10:311:10:33

is what she did in qualifying, she

did not expect it to go so fast. She

1:10:331:10:36

got herself in trouble a couple of

times but got out of it.

We saw

1:10:361:10:40

earlier Giles come forth in the 800

metres, there was an appeal which

1:10:401:10:45

was overturned. They will hope their

camp can bear some fruit. Shelayna

1:10:451:10:50

Oskan-Clarke is the joint captain,

with Andy Pozzi. She has enjoyed

1:10:501:10:55

back?

Yes, and she has enjoyed

seeing the team perform well. Now

1:10:551:10:59

she wants to play her part in it.

Thank you, Paula. We will catch up

1:10:591:11:06

with the long jump, Steve?

COMMENTATOR: The women's long jump

1:11:061:11:11

is starting to hot up. Brittney

Reese, her first leap was 6.70 six.

1:11:111:11:18

She is in fourth place. Spanovic of

Serbia, 6.89, is the target.

1:11:181:11:29

Serbia, 6.89, is the target. She

likes it.

It is a good jump. She

1:11:291:11:33

likes it. Just sinks and lifts, that

is how she jumps. There are

1:11:331:11:38

differences between style and

technique, you either have a

1:11:381:11:41

straight leg where you run off the

board or you bend, either way you

1:11:411:11:45

had to lower your hips and raise

them. You can do that by lengthening

1:11:451:11:49

your stride or sinking at the knee.

We have seen various styles.

No

1:11:491:11:58

improvement, 6.61, Reese still in

fourth. Here is your event leader.

1:11:581:12:03

Medals at five global championships,

a bronze and a silver at these

1:12:031:12:10

championships, but never the gold.

Can Spanovic extend her lead?

Tips

1:12:101:12:19

forward a little, the body leans

into the box. She lost a bit of

1:12:191:12:23

momentum as she accelerated and

dropped off. Not as good. Needs to

1:12:231:12:28

stand up tall on the board.

As you

said earlier, Tony, just not getting

1:12:281:12:34

up off the board, maybe did not get

that Upward propulsion and the

1:12:341:12:38

height we have seen from her in the

past. She is in the lead. 6.89, no

1:12:381:12:43

improvement.

That long jump continuing, but back

1:12:431:12:49

on the track the 800-metre women's

final. Here is the start list.

1:12:491:12:56

Francine Niyonsaba is probably the

favourite. Raevyn Rogers has been

1:12:561:13:01

very busy at these championships.

Here come the introductions.

Lights

1:13:011:13:08

go down.

First of all, twice

European indoor champion for

1:13:081:13:12

Switzerland, Selina Buchel.

Has won

the European indoor Championships

1:13:121:13:18

anti occasions. Me and sat there is

definitely in that sort of shape. --

1:13:181:13:27

frenzy Niyonsaba is in that sort of

shape. Ajee Wilson of the United

1:13:271:13:34

States, US record-holder, won silver

in Portland and a bronze outdoors

1:13:341:13:38

last year in London. Shelayna

Oskan-Clarke...

A great reception

1:13:381:13:50

for Shelayna.

1:13:501:13:55

for Shelayna. A lame as Ethiopia, a

great young talent.

1:13:561:14:06

great young talent. -- Alemu of

Ethiopia, a great young talent.

1:14:061:14:10

Rogers was never slated to run the

final in the four by 400, she helped

1:14:101:14:16

her team qualifier and will win a

medal if they, as he expects, win.

1:14:161:14:20

Anyway, she has the 800-metre final.

She is in the same training group as

1:14:201:14:26

a Wilson, I think. She has left

university. -- the same training

1:14:261:14:31

group as Ajee Wilson. Niyonsaba is

the defending champion.

1:14:311:14:35

The women's 800-metre final, four

lapse indoors. -- laps.

1:14:441:14:55

I was looking for lane infringement,

I did not see any. Shelayna is in a

1:14:561:15:02

decent position, Alemu catching the

heels of Wilson. Shelayna is tucked

1:15:021:15:07

on the curb.

The girls were very

careful for lane infringements.

1:15:071:15:12

Rogers took a long time to come off

the curb and come back in. She is

1:15:121:15:17

settled at the back and watching

Wilson dictate this race and control

1:15:171:15:21

this race.

1:15:211:15:26

this race. Ajee Wilson has grown in

composure and stature. When

1:15:261:15:30

Niyonsaba tries to take back

control, she is not having any of

1:15:301:15:34

it.

Rogers is tired from the four by

four yesterday. Ajee Wilson making

1:15:341:15:40

sure she kept control. Did not want

Niyonsaba, who really wanted to get

1:15:401:15:45

to the front. It has been

controlled. 59 to 400 metres.

1:15:451:15:50

Oskan-Clarke is still in with a

great chance. Five women are

1:15:501:15:53

contesting, Shelayna has to come

into contact.

She had a little bit

1:15:531:16:00

of a barge with Michelle, Shelayna

was letting her know that would not

1:16:001:16:04

happen. She looks tired and needs to

fight. Ajee Wilson is responding to

1:16:041:16:10

everything Niyonsaba tries.

It is

between Niyonsaba and Ajee Wilson.

1:16:101:16:15

Niyonsaba try to get back the

defending champion again. Really

1:16:151:16:19

wants to get in front. Wilson doing

a cracking job of holding her.

1:16:191:16:24

Niyonsaba tries again. Alemu is in

the sight of Shelayna Oskan-Clarke

1:16:241:16:28

stop Shelayna is moving into third.

The crowd are going crazy. Niyonsaba

1:16:281:16:35

is going to defend her title

superbly well. Niyonsaba wins a

1:16:351:16:41

great 800 final. It is a bronze the

Shelayna Oskan-Clarke, who stuck to

1:16:411:16:45

her task well. Could see that the

surge with which Niyonsaba and

1:16:451:16:51

Wilson had dragged first of all

Alemu and Selina Buchel, Buchel went

1:16:511:16:58

first and then Shelayna had a

different target as Alemu tired.

1:16:581:17:03

Hats off to Niyonsaba, a very good

performance from her. Ajee Wilson

1:17:031:17:08

did her best to hold her wrath, it

was a great scrap. 1:58.31, negative

1:17:081:17:15

spreads, a really good performance

but shall Aina Oskan-Clarke joins a

1:17:151:17:20

list of Jane Finch in the first

indoor Championships and Joe

1:17:201:17:25

Fanning, Jenny Meadows who got moved

on to a silver medal in 2010. Good

1:17:251:17:32

pedigree in the women's 800.

Shelayna Oskan-Clarke delivering a

1:17:321:17:34

bronze medal.

1:17:341:17:40

Huge congratulations to wall free

women. Congratulations to Ajee

1:17:411:17:47

Wilson, she held off Niyonsaba and

made it as difficult as possible for

1:17:471:17:52

her to retain her title. They were

both working hard down the back

1:17:521:17:56

straight and at this point Ajee

Wilson is just trying to focus and

1:17:561:17:58

hold on. But Shelayna Oskan-Clarke

judged this perfectly. She was only

1:17:581:18:05

starting around the bend and I'm

sure the noise of the crowd must

1:18:051:18:09

have given her a boost. We felt she

was closing in on Alemu before we

1:18:091:18:14

saw it on our screens. Once you

start reeling someone in and you can

1:18:141:18:21

see they are tired, it is a huge

confidence boost, even though

1:18:211:18:24

Shelayna must have been tired as

well, running negative splits, and

1:18:241:18:29

that is a hard way to run the race

but she deserved that and it will

1:18:291:18:35

give her a boost moving into the

rest of the season.

So Shelayna goes

1:18:351:18:41

under two minutes, a personal best

and she becomes the six British

1:18:411:18:45

woman to go under two minutes

indoors for the 800m and she is

1:18:451:18:51

rewarded with a bronze medal. Ajee

Wilson will be disappointed, a

1:18:511:18:59

personal best but she will be

disappointed she couldn't hold off

1:18:591:19:03

Niyonsaba. That was a cracking race,

.

1:19:031:19:11

Back to the pole vault, Holzdeppe

has a foul at this height. He has to

1:19:111:19:23

go clear here. 5.60, second attempt.

Much better. Made a mess of the

1:19:231:19:31

first one but showed real character

coming back with a solid clearance,

1:19:311:19:37

and the German's campaign continues.

Nice jump that for the German. Next

1:19:371:19:45

height, 5.70.

1:19:451:19:51

height, 5.70. This is the only

athlete not to have jumped yet, the

1:19:511:19:55

Frenchman world record-holder, as we

turn our attention to the world

1:19:551:19:59

junior record-holder, Duplantis.

5.60, also goes clear at the second

1:19:591:20:08

time of asking. Showing some

competitive metal there, the young

1:20:081:20:14

Swede. His mum is Swedish, his

father is American. As I mentioned

1:20:141:20:21

earlier, a vaulting family.

1:20:211:20:29

earlier, a vaulting family. Barber

of Canada in trouble. Two

1:20:291:20:33

consecutive fouls and you are out so

he has to go clear. Last chance

1:20:331:20:39

saloon. He's out. A bit of a

surprise, three fouls at a pretty

1:20:391:20:47

low height for Shawn Barber.

You

have got to get the pole up and out.

1:20:471:20:59

A shame for the young lad.

Not his

afternoon.

1:20:591:21:11

Shelayna is quite rightly lapping up

the moment, the crowd loving her

1:21:111:21:15

performance there. Really bullied

her round the home straight. Paula

1:21:151:21:22

Radcliffe, she played it so well

because she didn't panic at all, did

1:21:221:21:25

she?

No, she didn't panic,

1:21:251:21:34

she?

No, she didn't panic, at one

point it looked like she was more

1:21:341:21:36

towards the back of the field but

she kept her composure. She used her

1:21:361:21:41

nous to keep her space and stop

people cutting her up and then

1:21:411:21:45

judged it well. Down the back

straight was when she really made

1:21:451:21:49

the surge and started to make a big

impact on Alemu and was reeling her

1:21:491:21:54

in. The crowd must have given her a

boost and knowing she had a medal

1:21:541:21:59

down the back straight, and got a

personal best to boot.

And a

1:21:591:22:04

fantastic PB because the sixth woman

from these shores to go under two

1:22:041:22:09

minutes indoors which really puts

her amongst some of the great and

1:22:091:22:12

will give her confidence going to

the Commonwealth Games. A season

1:22:121:22:16

that she can get some medals,

Oskan-Clarke.

Yes, and she's proving

1:22:161:22:21

that with every season, her

confidence is getting stronger but

1:22:211:22:28

also her strength is getting better.

As she gets stronger, she will take

1:22:281:22:31

a break and build back towards the

Commonwealth Games, then back for

1:22:311:22:38

the European Championships.

And one

day we will hear her when she's not

1:22:381:22:43

having a massive lactic deficit in

her interview where she was bent

1:22:431:22:47

over! Obviously speaking to

Katharine Merry in the infield, we

1:22:471:22:51

will hear her in a moment speaking

and I'm sure she will be more

1:22:511:22:56

composed by then. We will see her in

the papers tomorrow no doubt but

1:22:561:23:00

let's speak about the men's 1,500m

coming up next on the track because

1:23:001:23:04

we saw Chris O Hare after his heat

in a terrible state with his foot.

1:23:041:23:10

He said he was feeling the effects

of an injury and obviously went off

1:23:101:23:17

disappointed not

1:23:171:23:22

disappointed not knowing about the

disqualification, then being

1:23:221:23:25

reinstated. He is down to race, do

you have any news on that?

Yes, I

1:23:251:23:30

had a message from him yesterday.

Had an MRI on his foot showing

1:23:301:23:35

inflammation but nothing that would

be damaged further by racing on it

1:23:351:23:38

today so as far as I'm aware he's

planning on coming out and giving it

1:23:381:23:41

his best go today.

We are looking

forward to this one. Steve Cram is

1:23:411:23:49

your commentator, and it is quite an

impressive field.

1:23:491:23:54

COMMENTATOR: Yes, and over the years

we've had some great winning this.

1:23:541:24:04

You can go back to the great old

days, I remember Marcus O'Sullivan,

1:24:051:24:12

a great Irish runner who won this on

three occasions, and wonder whether

1:24:121:24:16

we can get some British success

here. Kibet of Kenya made the final

1:24:161:24:21

two years ago. Oskan-Clarke, one of

the US' best 1,500m runners.

1:24:211:24:37

Lewandowski dangerous in a slow

race, others might want to make sure

1:24:371:24:40

he's not able to use his pace. The

man who I think will be a big

1:24:401:24:46

danger, looked very comfortable in

qualification, almost back to the

1:24:461:24:50

sort of form he was showing two or

three years ago. He has a happy

1:24:501:24:55

knack of winning medals in

Championships. Wote, another who

1:24:551:24:59

knows what it's like to get on the

rostrum in this event. Craig Engels

1:24:591:25:10

played a canny game yesterday. He

still has that moustache though. And

1:25:101:25:15

Chris O'Hare, as you heard Paula

laying, has decided to come and

1:25:151:25:19

compete and run.

1:25:191:25:30

Tefera broke the world indoor record

in France in January. But in

1:25:341:25:42

Wightman Britain have an excellent

contender along with Chris O'Hare,

1:25:421:25:46

looked superb in qualification

winning his heat. A very well

1:25:461:25:49

controlled race. In the form of his

life heading towards the

1:25:491:25:55

Commonwealth Games where you

represent Scotland. Chris O'Hare

1:25:551:26:00

also heading in that direction,

hopefully. So, two Brits here with a

1:26:001:26:07

very good Ethiopian, Niyonsaba of

Morocco with a lot of experience.

1:26:071:26:15

The youthful exuberance of Tefera to

contend with. When he broke the

1:26:151:26:26

record it was his first indoor race,

no indoor tracks of course in

1:26:261:26:31

Ethiopia. And Lewandowski, well both

Chris and Jake know him well. Jake

1:26:311:26:43

ran a personal best in preparation

for this, which is a great way to

1:26:431:26:48

set yourself up.

1:26:481:26:53

set yourself up. This foot injury

has set Chris O'Hare back a little

1:26:551:26:59

bit, hopefully he can put that to

one side.

On your marks...

So the

1:26:591:27:06

men's 1,500m final. Seven and a half

laps of the track indoors, again we

1:27:061:27:14

don't have any natural front runners

here. Wote might be the one who gets

1:27:141:27:18

uncomfortable when it is too slow,

that all Ethiopian at the back.

1:27:181:27:24

Tefera, the youngster, we are

waiting to see how he conducts

1:27:241:27:28

himself here. Wightman has a good

tactical brain. Niyonsaba just

1:27:281:27:36

jogging through this first couple of

hundred metres very slowly indeed.

1:27:361:27:39

Yes, when Niyonsaba goes to the

front we don't know if it's anything

1:27:391:27:45

but to control it or slow it down.

He will be a front runner in the

1:27:451:27:53

race, so too will be Lewandowski.

They might as well walk now!

I think

1:27:531:27:58

I could keep up with this, just

about. You have got to go back all

1:27:581:28:03

the way to another Scot, David

Strang who won a medal in the 1990s.

1:28:031:28:11

Jake is looking anxious. This is

where you have got to keep your

1:28:111:28:15

nerves. They are just about jogging

and this is not what you are used

1:28:151:28:19

to. It makes you feel uncomfortable,

you are worried about getting

1:28:191:28:23

tripped. You don't want to be the

one to change the pace, you try to

1:28:231:28:28

coax someone else into doing it,

that is what Chris is doing there.

1:28:281:28:33

But nobody wants to. Tefera, even

though he's 18, he doesn't want to

1:28:331:28:39

be the one either. Nobody wants to

commit first.

Oskan-Clarke doesn't

1:28:391:28:43

want to be there. Even if Engels

wanted to do it he cannot get out

1:28:431:28:50

from where he is. When someone's

nerve snaps, they will go hard and

1:28:501:28:54

there will be a quick scramble, and

that is when it is dangerous because

1:28:541:28:59

people tried to extricate themselves

from the boxes they are in.

The key

1:28:591:29:03

also is not to panic when the pace

comes on. We saw Shelayna, sometimes

1:29:031:29:10

you have to build your effort. We

saw Laura Muir do that and come away

1:29:101:29:18

with two medals. Jake is in in good

place around the outside. He's in a

1:29:181:29:23

very good position. For the first

time Tefera get things moving.

Yes,

1:29:231:29:33

Jake moved out wide to allow himself

to get a better view of where people

1:29:331:29:37

were in the field. Having said that,

the work he did to get himself in a

1:29:371:29:42

better position was just undone.

And

he has to stay there and get to this

1:29:421:29:49

position and not give this up. Chris

O'Hare at the back now so it is

1:29:491:29:56

Tefera in the lead. Wightman in a

good sport. Chris O'Hare at the back

1:29:561:30:02

at the moment and they are just

picking it up.

This is where it

1:30:021:30:07

shows if you get yourself a good

position at the start. If Tefera

1:30:071:30:15

keeps running wide...

Would have

liked to have seen Jake hold off

1:30:151:30:22

Wote, now he will have to check out

and come back. This is good from

1:30:221:30:29

Jake Wightman, an excellent move.

Wightman. The three heat

1:30:291:30:38

Wightman. The three heat winners,

1-2-3 at the moment. Wightman has

1:30:391:30:43

told the inside, Lewandowski

challenging. This is his territory.

1:30:431:30:49

It is Niyonsaba, and Tefera the

youngster, Lewandowski of Poland.

1:30:491:30:55

Wightman has got to hang in. Tefera

going to try and strike, but has

1:30:551:31:03

Niyonsaba got enough strength to see

it through? Tefera gets the gold,

1:31:031:31:09

Lewandowski with silver, Niyonsaba

gets a bronze medal.

1:31:091:31:17

The youngster who broke the world

and 20 record on doors in January in

1:31:171:31:22

his first-ever indoor race is the

champion. Lewandowski must be

1:31:221:31:27

absolutely delighted that turned

into a 800-metre race. The two

1:31:271:31:31

British man, that meant that the big

sprint that came, there was a big

1:31:311:31:37

change in position. If you were not

in the perfect place that made it

1:31:371:31:40

difficult, but it was about pace at

the end and we did not have enough.

1:31:401:31:45

Words just missing out, coming

forth, Iguider hanging on for the

1:31:451:31:49

bronze. -- Wote just missing out.

Mahtre Lewandowski made the decision

1:31:491:31:56

he was going to commit to the 1500

metres, might have regretted that

1:31:561:32:01

when he saw the 800-metre line-up,

but it turned into less than an

1:32:011:32:05

800-metre race. It was about being

in the right place and what you had

1:32:051:32:10

in the home straight. He was evenly

placed with Jake Wightman on the

1:32:101:32:13

inside, who was maybe in a better

position to track through the Heinz

1:32:131:32:20

Tefera, but Lewandowski managed to

stay patient, to wait around the

1:32:201:32:24

bend where it is still wide open for

the three battling for the bronze

1:32:241:32:28

medal, probably gold and silver were

gone at this point in their mind.

1:32:281:32:37

Looking at the pictures afterwards,

Iguider was happy. But Samuel

1:32:371:32:44

Tefera, let's see what he can do

outdoors and build on this.

1:32:441:32:48

A very exciting prospect. Ethiopia

have a feud. We have seen arrogant,

1:32:481:32:55

Cajal Kerr, now Tefera. Great

athletes coming through. -- we have

1:32:551:33:01

seen Salamon Braegger, Yomif

Kejelcha.

1:33:011:33:08

There was a 55 seconds 400 before

that. They ran out of legs little

1:33:091:33:16

bit.

The two Brits finished

1:33:161:33:23

bit.

The two Brits finished sixth and

1:33:231:33:23

eighth and join us.

That was a serious race. You please

1:33:231:33:30

with your performance?

Not really. I

was hoping to be going for a medal.

1:33:301:33:37

I did not get my positioning right.

I was struggling in the last 50

1:33:371:33:42

metres.

You are having to fight for

position in a few times. It looked

1:33:421:33:46

like you would get the break and

slipped back.

I did a bit too much

1:33:461:33:51

work at points, something I was

hoping not to have to do. To make

1:33:511:33:54

the final was a tick for me, but I

wanted more, I am gutted.

I will not

1:33:541:34:04

lie, after our conversation

yesterday, your foot injury, I did

1:34:041:34:07

not think I would see you. It was

bowled coming out.

I had an MRI last

1:34:071:34:14

night, went pretty much from the

track to the hospital. Do you know

1:34:141:34:18

what, I am happy to be here. I don't

like to say that, but with what

1:34:181:34:24

happened yesterday and by last

couple of weeks I am happy I was

1:34:241:34:28

able to run. Just could not get my

knees up. I thought it is OK, more

1:34:281:34:36

jogging. I thought I was all right

added. When we kicked off, I was all

1:34:361:34:43

out the back, could not get my knees

in front of me. The power was not

1:34:431:34:47

there. That is a shame. But it is

good to have two Brits in the final,

1:34:471:34:54

we will get there.

Great to see you

both in action, thank you for

1:34:541:34:59

speaking to us. STUDIO: A cracking

race but still no medal from a

1:34:591:35:03

British man in these championships.

It has all been down to the women.

1:35:031:35:08

We have had another one from

Shelayna Oskan-Clarke method took

1:35:081:35:11

bronze in the aid had metres

earlier.

1:35:111:35:13

JJ caught up with her. A personal

best, bronze medal and you have

1:35:131:35:18

broken the two minutes barrier,

which only six women in Britain have

1:35:181:35:22

ever done. A day of accomplishments.

I would not say it was the best

1:35:221:35:27

race, I was a bit out of control for

the first part, but I had to dig

1:35:271:35:31

deep and know I could catch the

girls at the end. I am happy to

1:35:311:35:39

girls at the end. I am happy to get

a medal.

You said yesterday the race

1:35:401:35:41

did not go to plan, what did you

make today?

It is quite hard when

1:35:411:35:44

all the girls are quite close, they

went out fast. You will possibly get

1:35:441:35:49

boxed in, you had to be aware. Which

kind of happened to me, and I was

1:35:491:35:54

stopping and starting but I managed

to hold my own and be confident in

1:35:541:35:59

being able to catch the girls back.

When you enter the chase round the

1:35:591:36:05

back bends, you were riding on a

wave of sound from the crowd. How

1:36:051:36:11

incredible was that?

Normally I face

everything out, but it is and

1:36:111:36:15

encouraging that you can did not

hear it. -- normally I phase

1:36:151:36:21

everything out.

You have been the

captain this week in a team that has

1:36:211:36:24

done so well, what is it like

balancing your roles and

1:36:241:36:30

responsibilities? Nerve-racking? Has

it build you up?

It was definitely

1:36:301:36:34

nerve-racking up the start because I

had to do my speech and I really

1:36:341:36:38

wanted to inspire the team. Now it

is congratulating them and making

1:36:381:36:43

them aware of their performances and

saying good luck, but has not been

1:36:431:36:48

too draining, I have had to keep

focused on what I came here to do.

1:36:481:36:53

You have lead by example, thank you

for speaking to us.

1:36:531:36:56

You have lead by example, thank you

for speaking to us. COMMENTATOR:

Back to the pole vault, Filippidis

of Greece, a good clearance at the

1:37:011:37:07

previous height. The new height five

metres and 70, he will be the first

1:37:071:37:11

athlete to have a go at this new

heights. First attempts by previous

1:37:111:37:16

champion. Very good. Confident

stuff.

1:37:161:37:27

stuff. Probably not getting towards

medal awarding heights just yet, but

1:37:271:37:31

his competition continues nicely. I

don't know if he has much more to

1:37:311:37:36

give. He looks like he is right at

the end. A good clearance at five

1:37:361:37:44

metres 74 Filippidis. -- five metres

70, four Filippidis. STUDIO: Eilidh

1:38:051:38:08

I spoke to them both earlier. Thank

you so much for coming in to join

1:38:081:38:14

this coming huge congratulations to

you both. It has been a brilliant

1:38:141:38:18

few days. I saw a wonderful tweeter

of the pair of you are enjoying the

1:38:181:38:23

success. Does it mean a bit extra

that you are also Scottish

1:38:231:38:27

team-mates, you have come through

the system together, to have this

1:38:271:38:31

moment together when you have known

each other so long must be lovely?

1:38:311:38:36

Not only are we team-mates but we

are from the same town, we went to

1:38:361:38:40

the

1:38:401:38:50

same school, Laura got there. It is

really nice we have this bond and

1:38:511:38:53

were able to share it last night.

I

expect the phone call from head of

1:38:531:38:56

PE for speech day this year. To be

so close together and said Dibaba,

1:38:561:38:59

making that step from bronze to

silver, now you are breaking through

1:38:591:39:03

on the world stage. It has been

pretty monumental, these last few

1:39:031:39:07

days? About such a relief. I have

been there or thereabouts for the

1:39:071:39:13

past few years, getting the European

medals last year was great

but it

1:39:131:39:17

has been my first medals in the

world stage against really top

1:39:171:39:21

competition, really pleased.

From day one to yesterday, did your

1:39:211:39:27

belief system increase from the

first medal?

1:39:271:39:34

first medal? Did you really see

yourself pushing through? About just

1:39:371:39:39

being so close and being in

contention, I thought I could do

1:39:391:39:42

well in 1500. We are going to do

good today, it is a matter of racing

1:39:421:39:45

smart and finishing strong. I came

out with silver.

1:39:451:39:48

Hats off, Eilidh, you racist smart

and pushed into a fantastic

1:39:481:39:54

position. Almost managed to hold off

and go for silver.

1:39:541:40:02

and go for silver. -- hats off,

Eilidh, you raced smarter.

I lost my

1:40:021:40:08

rhythm and my stride in another

race, I did not want that in the

1:40:081:40:12

final. Gave myself the best possible

chance to be in the medals,

1:40:121:40:16

thankfully it paid off.

Heading to

Australia soon for the Commonwealth

1:40:161:40:21

Games, Eilidh. Laura, heading back

to your veteran area studies. Has a

1:40:211:40:25

bit if you felt so good here that

you would like to go to the

1:40:251:40:31

Commonwealth Games?

This has been in

the planning for three or four macro

1:40:311:40:37

years that I would not be able to do

the Commonwealth Games. But the

1:40:371:40:42

Scottish team is so strong, the

likes of Eilidh.

When you are going

1:40:421:40:46

for really cold runs in Scotland and

they are out there, a little bit of

1:40:461:40:50

you will be watching that with a bit

of old, God...?

A couple of weeks

1:40:501:40:56

ago there was sleet in my face, my

face was numb...

I could be in

1:40:561:41:01

Australia! You have made the right

decisions for you, going through

1:41:011:41:05

with your studies. In your

veterinarian to greet wraps up soon?

1:41:051:41:10

-- and your veteran I read degree

wraps up soon?

Yes.

Eilidh, heading

1:41:101:41:21

back over the hurdles?

Can't wait to

get back.

It was a joy to meet your

1:41:211:41:28

gorgeous Rottweiler, Ben. You must

have missed him?

I will need to

1:41:281:41:31

leave him for five weeks when I go

to Australia, that will be hard.

1:41:311:41:36

Thank you so much and best of

1:41:361:41:37

to Australia, that will be hard.

Thank you so much and best of luck.

1:41:371:41:41

COMMENTATOR: Brittney Reese not

having the best afternoon, one of

1:41:411:41:44

the most decorated athletes at the

World Indoor Championships, she has

1:41:441:41:48

won this title three times before,

her best so far was 6.76, in fourth

1:41:481:41:53

place. Into round three.

A better

run of the board. Did not really

1:41:531:42:01

carry the speed across but seemed to

have more room. She really needs to

1:42:011:42:06

take off and drive her hips across

her foot. Out into the pits.

She

1:42:061:42:15

produces it when it matters most but

she has lots to spare. Another

1:42:151:42:20

almost 20 centimetres, 6.70 seven.

Slight improvement, still in fourth

1:42:201:42:25

place. -- 6.7 seven.

1:42:251:42:34

place. -- 6.7 seven. The Australian,

Filippidis increases the only man

1:42:381:42:41

clear so far. What a good attempt

that was, a good clearance.

That

1:42:411:42:48

will take him into joint first

place.

1:42:481:42:55

place.

Tenth in Rio, seventh in

London, 20 years of age, Kurtis

1:42:551:42:59

Marschall, going well. The

athleticism needed to move yourself

1:42:591:43:08

over five metres 70, up in the air.

Next up is the women's 4x400 metres

1:43:081:43:16

relay. First to meet the crowd,

Poland will go in late one.

1:43:161:43:27

Poland will go in late one. That is

three quarters of the team which won

1:43:271:43:29

in Belgrade.

One replacement. Italy in lane two.

1:43:291:43:40

Here are Great Britain and Northern

Ireland.

Meghan Beesley, Hani

1:43:461:43:54

Williams, Allcock and know a veto.

-- know a litre oil.

1:43:541:44:06

Strong favourites, the United

States. They may be able to push the

1:44:151:44:19

world record of Russia.

1:44:191:44:27

Jamaica gets stronger. MacPherson

and Jenkins coming in. Jenkins was

1:44:281:44:36

fifth in the individuals.

1:44:361:44:38

Jenkins in her first indoor heat

yesterday.

1:44:431:44:50

I think the United States, if they

are to get close to the record of

1:44:501:44:54

Russia, would need a good, honest

push from Jamaica as well. Jamaica

1:44:541:45:00

will have designed other than

helping the United States to a world

1:45:001:45:03

record. Meghan Beesley is enjoying

something, she switches to the

1:45:031:45:10

lead-off leg. So Lee Clark will run

the anchor leg. I think all the

1:45:101:45:16

British women have gone for a Dutch

platter, I am told. By those who

1:45:161:45:20

know!

1:45:201:45:26

Hannah Williams, sister of Jody

Williams, running on the second leg.

1:45:261:45:30

There is another Dutch plat. Amy

Allcock. In the Relay, we are

1:45:301:45:41

keeping an eye out for everything.

Because so many in the 400

1:45:411:45:47

individual and the Relay changeovers

as well, the handovers. So plenty to

1:45:471:45:52

look out for. Great Britain and

Northern Ireland in with the chance

1:45:521:45:55

of a medal, but Poland will be

strong and the United States are

1:45:551:46:00

favourites. Jamaica might give them

a good race.

1:46:001:46:06

a good race. Ukraine with a strong

quartet as well. So the final of the

1:46:071:46:12

women's 4 x 100m Relay. Meghan

Beesley to lead off the home four.

1:46:121:46:30

Meghan Beesley has gone out very

quick indeed. She does this often

1:46:311:46:36

and is running 400 fast and closing

down on the Ukrainian Melnyk and for

1:46:361:46:43

the United States, Quanera Hayes

taking them out. Jamaica with a bit

1:46:431:46:46

to do at the moment, Tovea Jenkins

settled and hoping to finish

1:46:461:46:51

strongly. Poland in a good position

and Italy with so much to do

1:46:511:46:55

already.

The form book says at USA

to win and a struggle for silver and

1:46:551:47:01

bronze with the backend they have,

the United States are the hot

1:47:011:47:05

favourite and Jamaica have got

McPherson. So imported Meghan

1:47:051:47:11

Beesley digs in deep. She's

struggling in the last 50 metres and

1:47:111:47:15

she has got to give Hannah Williams

a chance to be involved, with

1:47:151:47:20

Poland, Jamaica and Italy. Like she

was yesterday, Williams has got to

1:47:201:47:24

chase here, to try and not panic at

this point on the first leg and keep

1:47:241:47:29

closing that gap. Get as close to

those medal positions as possible.

1:47:291:47:35

Finalist at the Olympic Games in the

hurdles in 2012, Georganne Moline,

1:47:351:47:41

leading the United States, with

another hurdler Janieve Russell

1:47:411:47:44

closing down and for Poland,

Patrycja Wyciszkiewicz closing down,

1:47:441:47:47

a lot of work for Hannah Williams to

do and Ukraine are faring badly in

1:47:471:47:51

the handover and propping up the

field. The crowd roaring Hannah

1:47:511:47:55

Williams on to close the big gap to

the top three. And that is trouble,

1:47:551:48:03

Georganne Moline has hit the curb.

Something to keep an eye on. Russell

1:48:031:48:07

hands of Jamaica to Anastasia

Le-Roy, Poland close behind and Amy

1:48:071:48:14

Allcock with work to do for Great

Britain and Northern Ireland.

The

1:48:141:48:17

three teams too far ahead at the

moment. Perhaps Poland, they do have

1:48:171:48:25

a very experienced competitor on the

last leg, but that is a big gap to

1:48:251:48:29

close. The USA, Jamaica, but the

only question is, did Moline put a

1:48:291:48:35

foot inside the curb or stagger or

stumble to avoid stepping on it?

1:48:351:48:40

United States leading bass and

Jamaica so close, Anastasia Le-Roy

1:48:401:48:43

on the final leg. United States

leading, Jamaica, Poland third and

1:48:431:48:53

these two clear of Great Britain.

Great effort by Poland to get clear.

1:48:531:48:58

And who knows, the United States

could be in for trouble with the

1:48:581:49:01

judges once again. It could be a

shame to see, two disqualifications,

1:49:011:49:08

United States a stronger act.

Jamaica giving them a fierce race.

1:49:081:49:11

On the anchor leg, individual

champion in the 400m, Courtney

1:49:111:49:18

Okolo, close to world record pace

and Stephenie Ann McPherson was

1:49:181:49:22

disqualified in the individual and

has something to prove. A long way

1:49:221:49:27

clear of the rest. Great Britain and

Northern Ireland are working hard in

1:49:271:49:32

fourth place at the moment, is its

third or fourth, who knows? Right

1:49:321:49:38

front is Courtney Okolo. McPherson.

Chasing gold is Courtney Okolo.

1:49:381:49:43

McPherson has not given up, Poland

and third place. McPherson digging

1:49:431:49:47

in, closing a bit, but it goes to

the United States. Not quite a world

1:49:471:49:54

record. A championship record. Just

outside the Russian world-record

1:49:541:50:00

3.20 three. It is gold for the

United States. As we expected. And

1:50:001:50:08

also as we expected, Jamaica gave

them such a good race. But again,

1:50:081:50:13

you have to say with a caveat

because there will be a close look

1:50:131:50:18

at Georganne Moline on the second

leg for the United States. The

1:50:181:50:23

United States deserved to win that.

They are the strongest four, but the

1:50:231:50:28

judges had been draconian at these

championships. And at the moment,

1:50:281:50:31

Great Britain and Northern Ireland

of finishing in fourth place. So we

1:50:311:50:39

will wait and see.

Yes, we will.

What a great race! To within half a

1:50:391:50:45

second of the world-record.

Phenomenal race from both Jamaica

1:50:451:50:51

and the United States. Jamaica go

third on the all-time list, it

1:50:511:50:56

United States second. And Poland's

performs as well.

1:50:561:51:03

performs as well. Quicker than any

British team has ever run, 3:26.09.

1:51:031:51:07

So no shame. So did Georganne Moline

put a foot inside the curb, no, I

1:51:071:51:14

think she was just avoiding doing

that. The Pole Vault Matt was in the

1:51:141:51:20

perfect position for as not to know.

Anyway, I think she was just making

1:51:201:51:26

sure, a little off-balance and tired

at that point. She looks a was a bit

1:51:261:51:31

nervous.

I think they are OK. And

there will be some people watching

1:51:311:51:34

at home who was perhaps wish to see

a medal for Great Britain and

1:51:341:51:40

Northern Ireland. We have seen too

many disqualifications and many

1:51:401:51:44

great performances and old.

Georganne Moline just behind the

1:51:441:51:49

Pole Vault bed. Courtney Okolo just

outside the Russian world-record in

1:51:491:51:55

2006, Stephenie Ann McPherson

disqualified in the individual,

1:51:551:52:00

desperate to make amends, but could

not quite do it.

That is a

1:52:001:52:03

Commonwealth record for Jamaica as

well. So records all over the place.

1:52:031:52:08

A solid and good performance as well

for the British women, and a 3.30.

1:52:081:52:16

United States gold medal, Poland

with a good brands.

1:52:161:52:22

A slight improvement for the

Americans in that round. Brittney

1:52:231:52:28

police is unbeaten this year as she

settles herself ahead of her fourth

1:52:281:52:31

round jump. Fastest ever on the

approach. That looks a better

1:52:311:52:39

take-off.

Still not driving the

Freeney, that gives you left. That

1:52:391:52:44

converts the speed. But starting to

get used to the runway here.

Yes,

1:52:441:52:52

feeling her way into this

competition. She has improved twice

1:52:521:52:55

already.

1:52:551:53:02

already. 6.89 and police goes into

the lead.

1:53:021:53:05

Well, what a

1:53:051:53:10

Well, what a moment this is. I sure

she'll have a thought for her old

1:53:101:53:14

coach who sadly died a couple of

years ago. Turned into a great 800m

1:53:141:53:23

runner and her coach has kept on the

great work. Apart from being one of

1:53:231:53:28

the most popular members of the

team, she is a great inspiration to

1:53:281:53:33

many because she always produces her

best at the championships and a

1:53:331:53:38

bronze medal in what was a cracking

800m final. Wilson ran bravely and

1:53:381:53:46

she fought with great tenacity to

try and hold of the defending

1:53:461:53:49

champion. It was a fast last 200m

off a good pace and she was awarded

1:53:491:53:56

with a new personal best.

1:53:561:54:02

with a new personal best. But this

athlete moved to be coached by Mark

1:54:071:54:11

Rowland, a great steeplechaser in

his own rights, world medallist

1:54:111:54:13

himself. Back in the 1980s. Doing a

great job with his group.

1:54:131:54:22

great job with his group. Niyonsaba

Burundi taking the gold medal in a

1:54:241:54:25

quick time.

1:54:251:54:30

NATIONAL ANTHEM PLAYS

1:54:461:54:54

So she defends her title in fine

style. That really was a race to

1:55:561:55:59

revel in. Articulate the

1:55:591:56:06

revel in. Articulate the performance

of Oskan-Calrke. She said she was

1:56:091:56:14

jealous of Eilidh Doyle treating her

pictures. Well, she has got one now

1:56:141:56:17

and she could look a bit happier!

She is absolutely delighted. Well

1:56:171:56:22

done, great performance.

And Steve said that, Denise, great

1:56:221:56:28

championship performer.

Absolutely.

She leaves everything on the track.

1:56:281:56:34

You talked about her tactical brain.

Her ability to raise her game within

1:56:341:56:39

championships. And that is just a

fantastic medal and hopefully it

1:56:391:56:42

will elevate her through the rest of

the season. Fantastic job.

Let's go

1:56:421:56:49

out because Steve Backley, we have

been treated to great field over the

1:56:491:56:53

last couple of days and it will

continue for the next couple of

1:56:531:56:55

hours.

It has been good, Gabby. And the

1:56:551:57:00

Long Jump is living up to

expectations so far.

1:57:001:57:09

expectations so far. Spanovic in

second place chasing that lead, at

1:57:091:57:13

the moment.

Better left and better

speed, for me. Drives the Freeney.

1:57:131:57:22

Drives the right leg up into the air

a bit more and gets a bit more left.

1:57:221:57:26

Not as flat as we have seen.

Normally, have I should, parallel to

1:57:261:57:31

the ground. But it is working for

her.

Good on the board and a really

1:57:311:57:38

good leg shoot but she enters the

sand and this will challenge the

1:57:381:57:41

lead. World leading jump. Out in

front. Spanovic takes control in the

1:57:411:57:48

fourth round.

1:57:481:57:53

fourth round. On the opposite side

of the Arena in Birmingham,

1:57:571:57:59

Duplantis getting ready for five

metres and 70, getting towards the

1:57:591:58:07

world junior record we saw. Look at

that!

Good clearance. This has been

1:58:071:58:12

a World Championships where we have

seen a lot of youngsters coming

1:58:121:58:14

through. We saw the young Cuban in

the Long Jump. The age difference

1:58:141:58:20

between the oldest and the youngest

is 13 years so I think we will see a

1:58:201:58:25

lot more of this young man.

18 years

of age, showing some stability under

1:58:251:58:30

pressure. Duplantis, really good

clearance. The reigning champion,

1:58:301:58:40

Sam Kendricks, looking to go from

outdoor champion last summer to

1:58:401:58:46

indoor champion here in Birmingham.

Kendricks. 5.70. Such a clean

1:58:461:58:54

jumper.

It is too easy! Lovely

textbook pole vaulting.

Perfect for

1:58:541:59:07

Sam Kendricks. First-time clearances

carrying no foul, that bodes well

1:59:071:59:14

for his placings should he be

challenged for height.

Flawless so

1:59:141:59:19

far. Good, isn't it?

1:59:191:59:24

far. Good, isn't it?

So finally, the

only athlete to have passed every

1:59:271:59:30

height so far, to match the

clearance of Kendricks, and he does.

1:59:301:59:34

Just goes off a little bit to the

light touch to the right, he should

1:59:341:59:39

come straight in the 12 o'clock, but

it's so low, he does not need to.

It

1:59:391:59:44

is game on, the Frenchman Lavillenie

looking good, so is Kendricks. The

1:59:441:59:49

Pole Vault going exactly to plan.

This is going to go down to the

1:59:491:59:52

wire. Great competition.

1:59:522:00:00

wire. Great competition. Lavillenie,

champion two years ago in Portland.

2:00:002:00:02

Looking to defend.

2:00:022:00:10

Back to the long jump, where

Brittney Reese was in the lead

2:00:122:00:16

momentarily. But I Ivana Spanovic

wrestled it away from her.

She

2:00:162:00:25

dropped her feet in early.

Reasonable speed. And then just

2:00:252:00:28

didn't get her feet out ahead of

centre of gravity, really. She

2:00:282:00:34

drives the knee, goes up. Pulls back

down from the knees. The shins go

2:00:342:00:40

into the ground.

That bodes well for

a last round jump. That will maybe

2:00:402:00:47

not challenged. It is not her best

job. But she has got to be

2:00:472:00:51

optimistic going into the final

round. There is a cut in round five.

2:00:512:01:03

Let's see if Quanesha Burks does it

again with the left-hander. Huge

2:01:032:01:07

rotation.

Fouled it. It tipped

forwards.

2:01:072:01:17

forwards. If your feet land before

you touch outside the pitch, that is

2:01:172:01:20

fine. As long as that hand is

further forward, or further away

2:01:202:01:29

from the long jump board than the

first contact with the sand, that is

2:01:292:01:33

fine. I hope that makes sense!

Clear

as mud.

Or sand!

More big news to

2:01:332:01:43

bring you. It wasn't the United

States who were ultimately

2:01:432:01:47

disqualified for Georgeanne Moline's

foot. Jamaica have been

2:01:472:01:50

disqualified. The waiting athlete

being in the wrong position for the

2:01:502:01:57

incoming athlete. We will look at

things. It does mean that Great

2:01:572:02:00

Britain and Northern Ireland will

get a bronze medal. Jamaica, who had

2:02:002:02:04

earned the silver, will not get the

silver. Another disqualification at

2:02:042:02:10

these championships. But a different

rule infringement. Steve, you have

2:02:102:02:15

been keeping an eye on this as well.

This does happen occasionally.

It

2:02:152:02:21

happens. It has happened to Great

Britain before. Back in 2006 at the

2:02:212:02:27

Commonwealth Games, England were not

in the right order. You get placed

2:02:272:02:31

in order at the changeover line

based on where they are in the back

2:02:312:02:35

straight. Normally outdoors it is at

the 200 metres mark. It doesn't

2:02:352:02:40

matter if your runner comes past.

She wasn't in second place around

2:02:402:02:47

the back straight with 100 to go.

You have to line up where the

2:02:472:02:52

officials walk you out. She was

walked out in third place. She

2:02:522:02:57

jostled into second. That is why she

has been disqualified.

Let's look at

2:02:572:03:02

the second changeover. That is fine.

They are brought out in those

2:03:022:03:10

positions and they stay there. But

it was the first changeover from

2:03:102:03:13

Jenkins to Russell. Jamaica, who

were several -- silver-medallist,

2:03:132:03:21

have been disqualified under the

rule. And it means that Great

2:03:212:03:25

Britain and Northern Ireland get the

bronze medal. Meghan Beesley, Hannah

2:03:252:03:29

Williams, Amy

2:03:292:03:35

Williams, Amy Allcock and Zoe Sharp.

2:03:352:03:38

bronze medal. Meghan Beesley, Hannah

Williams, Amy Allcock and Zoe Sharp.

2:03:382:03:42

21 disqualifications at these

championships. After the athletics

2:03:422:03:45

are over just after half past five,

we will have a bigger chat about

2:03:452:03:49

that. Some of these toe the line

maybe. Maybe we are all suspicious

2:03:492:03:56

of that. But this was a clear rule

infringement.

I'm always wondering

2:03:562:04:00

if the athletes are told and warned

beforehand before they go out there.

2:04:002:04:05

This is one of those obscure rules.

It is one that can of goes against

2:04:052:04:08

common sense when you are there. You

are thinking, my athlete is coming

2:04:082:04:13

in second, we are going to have to

cross one another. Let's make it

2:04:132:04:18

easier. So yeah, she's moving in.

This athlete is saying, no, belong

2:04:182:04:23

there. She knows the rules. It's one

of those things, it is a clear rule.

2:04:232:04:33

I would agree this to -- with this

disqualification based on the rules.

2:04:332:04:39

But you saw the official stepping

onto the track to correct the

2:04:392:04:44

movement. She should have enforced

it, been a bit stronger. It was

2:04:442:04:47

definitely a mistake by the

Jamaican.

I think she tried to. She

2:04:472:04:51

was trying to say, you go back where

you were placed.

Node disagreement

2:04:512:04:57

here.

2:04:572:04:57

you were placed.

Node disagreement

here.

2:04:572:04:57

Long jump time. Steve Backley. We

are in the final round. Brittney

2:04:572:05:03

Reese has one final chance to

convert her second place to a gold

2:05:032:05:07

medal. She did exactly this two

years ago. That was in the last

2:05:072:05:12

round of these championships. See as

won it three times. She is chasing

2:05:122:05:16

six metres 96.

She decelerated and

slowed down into the board. She gets

2:05:162:05:24

a white flag. No, I think she knows

that is not enough. Those hand

2:05:242:05:30

gestures. Sinks on the penultimate

step and that slows down.

6.64 it

2:05:302:05:39

is. She has got to settle for a

silver medal. She's not used to

2:05:392:05:46

that. Three times champion. Her work

is done.

2:05:462:05:53

Six metres and 85 at second man.

2:06:002:06:11

The only athlete left who can stop

Ivana Spanovic.

2:06:112:06:19

Ivana Spanovic.

A lot of height. But

not enough speed across the board to

2:06:202:06:25

take into the pit. She slowed down

and really went to lift. It

2:06:252:06:29

converted the speed to lift and

dropped.

Ivana Spanovic takes gold.

2:06:292:06:35

It was bronze four years ago. Silver

two years ago. And now she has got

2:06:352:06:40

the full set. That will look good in

the medal cabinet, wanted?

I haven't

2:06:402:06:49

got a medal cabinet. Have you got

one?! Brilliance scenes. You can see

2:06:492:06:54

what it means to her. She was

incredible last year taking the

2:06:542:06:59

European indoor title. Maybe not

quite in that same shape but good

2:06:592:07:03

enough to be the best in the world.

The German wins bronze. That is what

2:07:032:07:17

it feels like to come second.

2:07:172:07:28

There is a confirmation of the

medallists. I Ivana Spanovic, a

2:07:292:07:33

world leading jump.

2:07:332:07:38

world leading jump. She beats a

previous champion.

2:07:402:07:51

Andrew Pozzi with the season's best

time indoors.

A cracking start. And

2:07:552:08:03

he wins it. A smile from Aries

Merritt, will also go through. Much

2:08:032:08:12

better from Pozzi. That is a

stunning run.

2:08:122:08:19

stunning run. The last individual

event on the track is upon us.

2:08:202:08:23

stunning run. The last individual

event on the track is upon us. And

2:08:232:08:25

it involves Andrew Pozzi.

He will be

expected to push himself to the

2:08:252:08:31

front of this race. This is here for

him, isn't it? He could win this?

He

2:08:312:08:38

could win this. He has run really

well throughout the rounds. He ran

2:08:382:08:43

fantastic in the semifinal. Team

captain. No medals yet for team GB.

2:08:432:08:48

There is a lot that he could do for

himself and this team. He is well

2:08:482:08:52

positioned to do it. It is a matter

of running the same type of races we

2:08:522:08:56

have seen him run over the rounds.

This semifinal, a good clean start.

2:08:562:09:01

Clean over the hurdles. Nice and

efficient. No real issues. That is

2:09:012:09:07

what he needs to do. I think it is

all he can do. Obviously the French

2:09:072:09:11

athlete is fantastic and has run

amazingly. I don't think there is

2:09:112:09:18

anything Andy can do about that.

He

has to run his own race.

2:09:182:09:24

Martinot-Lagarde had a stumble and

pulled himself back. That must be a

2:09:242:09:29

slight worry from a British

perspective because he looks very

2:09:292:09:32

good indeed?

He looked good, but

unfortunately for him he can be

2:09:322:09:38

quite inconsistent. He touched the

little bit on the blocks there which

2:09:382:09:41

caused him to not react as well as

he should have. But because he is so

2:09:412:09:45

tall and he is so powerful, he was

able to use the frequency and power

2:09:452:09:52

of the fraud to pull himself back

into second place. He is dangerous.

2:09:522:09:56

Using his long legs there to get

Trajkovic back in.

In that

2:09:562:10:05

frequency, given that rhythm going

his what is best. I think from a

2:10:052:10:09

Andrew Pozzi can get out and stay

relaxed under pressure. If you can

2:10:092:10:14

do this, this could be a fantastic

race for him.

There's anybody who

2:10:142:10:18

knows what it is like to run fast

indoors it is the word's fastest man

2:10:182:10:22

ever over the hurdles indoors. Colin

Jackson still holds that time.

2:10:222:10:28

Colin, we saw a very fast time from

Andy Pozzi. Does he need to run any

2:10:282:10:32

quicker? Row will that time be

enough?

He needs to keep their very

2:10:322:10:38

cool head. He is in the same lane in

the final as he was in the

2:10:382:10:41

semifinal. He has to get out of the

blocks, as Denise said, well, and

2:10:412:10:46

hold it all together. He will not

have to press whatsoever. Even if

2:10:462:10:53

people challenging, let them

challenge and perhaps make mistakes.

2:10:532:10:55

He should be out there in front from

about hurdle three. He needs to hold

2:10:552:11:00

on.

It has been a good few days for

the British team. They have picked

2:11:002:11:05

up some medals, some good

performances. Andy Pozzi would be in

2:11:052:11:09

that group going forward through

this next cycle that we would expect

2:11:092:11:13

big things from. This could be a

real breakthrough for him?

Yes, I

2:11:132:11:17

think so. He regularly wins on the

European stage. This is a step up to

2:11:172:11:26

the world stage. It will be imported

free to go out there as favourite

2:11:262:11:29

and perhaps take this title. He is

more than capable doing that.

2:11:292:11:34

The athletes coming out in just a

moment. But Steve

2:11:342:11:37

The athletes coming out in just a

moment. But Steve Backley, the

2:11:372:11:38

pole-vault competition is hotting

up.

2:11:382:11:42

Yes, it is taking its time to get

towards the business end. But we

2:11:422:11:46

getting there. Emanuel paralysis of

Greece, who held the world junior

2:11:462:11:49

record briefly.

2:11:492:11:55

record briefly. Armand Duplantis

with the world junior record. He

2:11:552:12:01

goes clear at 5.8 zero. How about

that! He loves it.

2:12:012:12:11

that! He loves it.

He just snaked

its way around the bar. Look at it

2:12:112:12:14

means to him.

Brilliant clearance

from the Greek youngster. He did

2:12:142:12:22

hold of the world junior record very

briefly. That would be the world

2:12:222:12:25

junior record. What a clearance. A

lifetime best in a World Indoor

2:12:252:12:32

Championship saw an 18-year-old.

What a bright future he has in this

2:12:322:12:38

event. Great scenes.

2:12:382:12:45

event. Great scenes.

Well, at 20

years of age, there is a crop of

2:12:452:12:49

youngsters. Kurtis Marschall from

Australia looking to match that

2:12:492:12:52

clearance. And he does! The

pole-vault indeed hotting up.

2:12:522:13:04

pole-vault indeed hotting up.

A real

talented crop of youngsters going

2:13:042:13:06

very nicely indeed.

The atmosphere

continues to build inside this arena

2:13:062:13:13

in Birmingham as we near the end of

these World Indoor Championship sand

2:13:132:13:17

and eagerly anticipated final to say

the least. Gabrielle Constantine of

2:13:172:13:22

Brazil. Introduced to the crowd.

Roger Iribarne of Cuba. He came

2:13:222:13:36

through just ahead of Aries Merritt.

What about Pascal Martinot-Lagarde?

2:13:362:13:43

Writes Andy edge the semi. -- he was

right on the edge in the semifinal.

2:13:432:13:50

If he guesses start right he may be

the favourite. Manga did not get it

2:13:502:13:55

wrong and is semifinal. He ran

beautifully to take a victory. He is

2:13:552:13:58

the French champion. Talking of good

runs, Milan Trajkovic the second

2:13:582:14:06

quickest qualifier.

2:14:062:14:15

quickest qualifier. He had to rely

on being a fastest loser to make the

2:14:152:14:19

final, Aries Merritt. Former Olympic

champion. Current world record

2:14:192:14:24

holder. Jarret Eaton, the second

American in this line-up. Came in

2:14:242:14:28

with great hopes. Just occasionally

fails to deliver.

2:14:282:14:37

fails to deliver. He is the joint

team captain. He is very local.

2:14:372:14:43

Effectively a home track. Certainly

a home crowd who will rue -- willing

2:14:432:14:46

to victory. What competition he is

against. Because for other events I

2:14:462:14:52

have seen some of the biggest names

not here, or perhaps those who did

2:14:522:14:56

come failing. This event is strong.

Perhaps a shame that Omar McLeod

2:14:562:15:02

could not make the trip. Apart from

that it is loaded.

2:15:022:15:11

So Andrew Pozzi focused. The centre

of attention for so many here. But

2:15:152:15:25

up against Aries Merritt

Constantino. Martinot-Lagarde.

2:15:252:15:35

Constantino. Martinot-Lagarde. Milan

Trajkovic and Jarret Eaton.

2:15:362:15:43

Back they come. It was Milan

Trajkovic and Jarret Eaton. A gasp

2:16:002:16:09

from the crowd as the second gunshot

cracked.

2:16:092:16:19

cracked. Looking at Trajkovic in the

light blue, Milan Trajkovic. And he

2:16:192:16:27

will be out.

Holzdeppe, of Germany. First

2:16:272:16:38

attempt. 5.8 two. He gets it as

well, so he joins Marschall, of

2:16:382:16:45

Australia. First-time clearances of

five metres 80. And the event

2:16:452:16:53

continues.

Back to have a look at

this and Trajkovic, alongside Jarret

2:16:532:16:59

Eaton. And very sadly.

We will

disqualify the athlete in lane six.

2:16:592:17:07

The bell tolls for him. That is one

where he perhaps did not know

2:17:072:17:15

because it was close. He will have

felt it was on the edge. And

2:17:152:17:19

reaction time does not lie. A warm

applause for Trajkovic, from the

2:17:192:17:25

Birmingham crowd, but little

consolation. Trajkovic has gone and

2:17:252:17:28

he had a chance. He has been going

so well, the second quickest

2:17:282:17:34

qualifier at 7.50 one. And down to

seven. -- 7.5 one.

2:17:342:17:48

It just adds to the nerves and

tension these men will be feeling.

2:17:482:17:53

Aries Merritt, Gabriel Constantino,

Pascal Martinot-Lagarde flanking

2:17:532:18:00

Pozzi. Jarret Eaton and Roger

Iribarne, of Cuba, in lane eight.

2:18:002:18:12

Silence and they are settling once

again.

2:18:122:18:24

Ready now for the final of the men's

60 metres hurdles.

2:18:252:18:37

This time, they go,

Martinot-Lagarde, Pozzi leading at

2:18:442:18:49

the moment. Jarret Eaton is coming

through, Pozzi across the line.

2:18:492:18:57

7.46, who went that time to win the

gold medal? So tight between Andrew

2:18:582:19:04

Pozzi and Jarret Eaton. They don't

know. They look together. All eyes

2:19:042:19:09

turn to the big screen. For the name

to appear. And it is Andrew Pozzi

2:19:092:19:18

has the gold medal. Pozzi has it by

100th of a second from Jarret Eaton,

2:19:182:19:24

the crowds don't know yet, they do

now and Pozzi knows. The first man

2:19:242:19:30

of Great Britain and Northern

Ireland to winning gold at these

2:19:302:19:33

championships. And how they

celebrate! For their captain. Pozzi

2:19:332:19:40

with gold. European indoor champion

and now champion of the world, what

2:19:402:19:46

a win, what a race! Jarret Eaton

with the silver. But it all belongs

2:19:462:19:52

to Andrew Pozzi.

What a tremendous

run by this young man! We have

2:19:522:19:58

waited time and time. We have known

what he is capable of and we decided

2:19:582:20:01

on so many occasions that if he can

shake off those injury problems he

2:20:012:20:05

has, he is truly a world beater. He

has come here to Birmingham, his

2:20:052:20:10

home track, delivered a great heat.

Wonderful semifinal. And now when

2:20:102:20:15

the pressure is on it even though he

made some mistakes, he still kept a

2:20:152:20:19

cool head. He pulled himself back

into contention and he came off the

2:20:192:20:24

last barrier and he drove very hard

for the line. And what a well

2:20:242:20:30

deserved victory for Pozzi.

The

smile of a champion, cries of Pozzi

2:20:302:20:36

around the arena. Look at this gold

medal winning run.

Out from the

2:20:362:20:40

blocks, he is focused. Shakes of

Martinot-Lagarde early and look at

2:20:402:20:45

Jarret Eaton, absolutely flying. And

at this stage, it was his race. He

2:20:452:20:51

makes a mistake going into this

barrier and clatters it with his

2:20:512:20:53

lead like and drags him right back,

Pozzi going forward and he works

2:20:532:20:58

hard. He was not going to lose that

on the lip. It wasn't flawless. He

2:20:582:21:04

stands on the hurdle, reverses at

the crucial end of the race making

2:21:042:21:09

sure that Pozzi just takes a great

victory.

Watching Pozzi here, that

2:21:092:21:19

last barrier from Jarret Eaton, as

the shot widens out.

2:21:192:21:28

the shot widens out. Pozzi's race,

and early start up. It was clean, it

2:21:282:21:30

makes such a difference, clean over

the final barrier, Jarret Eaton was

2:21:302:21:34

not and that is the difference,

winning by 100th of a second.

2:21:342:21:38

Brilliant performance from him. You

are anxious when somebody hits the

2:21:382:21:42

barrier during the acceleration

phase which is one, two and three.

2:21:422:21:47

Andrew smashed that hurdle and that

is when you saw the big gap appear

2:21:472:21:50

instantly. Because Jarret Eaton did

not do that. He goes out and takes

2:21:502:21:57

control well, but he is with that

lead leg, it throws him back. And

2:21:572:22:04

when you take your weight back, it

is difficult to recover. As well as

2:22:042:22:09

this young man did. He kept a cool

head and he definitely will have

2:22:092:22:15

seen Jarret flying in front of him.

It is horrible for Martinot-Lagarde

2:22:152:22:18

because he got a decent start,

Pascal Martinot-Lagarde, and he

2:22:182:22:21

could have been the favourite. Clean

over the barrier.

He hammers that

2:22:212:22:26

barrier, doesn't he? He tries to

recover but instead of taking it

2:22:262:22:30

higher, he decides to take a risk

and cream the barrier. It didn't

2:22:302:22:34

work and he goes backwards. Pozzi

fighting for the line. He wanted

2:22:342:22:39

this title. He knows what he is

capable of in himself and his heart

2:22:392:22:43

and he so wanted this. Look how he

dives for the line! Lean, Andrew,

2:22:432:22:49

lean! Brilliant, brilliant, Billy

and!

Lean, he did and when he did.

2:22:492:22:55

And this is when he found out,

Jarret Eaton knew before it and he

2:22:552:22:59

was already congratulating him.

There it is, the celebrations of the

2:22:592:23:03

first British man to win a medal at

these championships. The women still

2:23:032:23:08

leading 6-1. Aurel Manga with

bronze, for France. And by 100th of

2:23:082:23:16

a second, Andrew Pozzi, champion of

the world.

2:23:162:23:21

STUDIO: Some gold medals just make

you feel really good. It is always

2:23:212:23:25

great for the home crowd to see a

British at the Excel, but that was

2:23:252:23:31

fantastic, Denise, from Andrew

Pozzi.

Just outstanding. He clearly

2:23:312:23:36

arrived at these championships in

great form, but to consistently

2:23:362:23:39

deliver what we asked of him, what

he has asked of himself in these

2:23:392:23:43

championships is brilliant, valiant

hurdling.

Michael, he did not get

2:23:432:23:49

rattled by what was going on around

him, Martinot-Lagarde was falling

2:23:492:23:54

apart.

And he proved himself from

the beginning, if I just go and run

2:23:542:24:00

my race and I run it clean, that is

the best I can do. It puts him in a

2:24:002:24:05

great position, so he will go into

the finals and do it again and that

2:24:052:24:09

he has done each round, he has been

very consistent and it has worked

2:24:092:24:13

really well and it's great to see

that pay off at the World

2:24:132:24:19

Championships in the last individual

event of these championships.

2:24:192:24:23

Fantastic that the men have finally

got themselves their medal. They had

2:24:232:24:26

to wait until the last individual

event. But it means Great Britain

2:24:262:24:31

now on seven medals in total,

including the 4 x 400m, but in Great

2:24:312:24:39

Britain to third in the medal table,

which is impressive, just picking

2:24:392:24:42

them up slowly. Would this be in

excess of what they targeted?

No,

2:24:422:24:50

they set their targets high, they

were well aware that it is a double

2:24:502:24:55

championship season because they are

moving on to the Commonwealth Games

2:24:552:24:58

and they have had to make those

decisions. To get the two gold

2:24:582:25:02

medals, that has made a big

difference.

2:25:022:25:03

It has set off on the right note and

we have seen Laura Muir getting so

2:25:062:25:11

close and not getting that and the

rest of this team see her get it and

2:25:112:25:15

you think, Andrew Pozzi, I have been

close, this is my time. And once

2:25:152:25:19

that. Rolling, it picks up momentum.

Yes, Andrew Pozzi and Shelayna

2:25:192:25:28

Oskan-Clarke clearly popular to be

voted Captains. They held their

2:25:282:25:30

positions and they have delivered

and Andrew Pozzi will send this home

2:25:302:25:36

crowd happy. But first of all, it is

the medal ceremony, Steve Cram, we

2:25:362:25:42

are all very happy with that.

2:25:422:25:50

What a way to finish a cracking

championships. We know we set our

2:25:512:25:55

targets high, as Paula said. As we

see the roster. Despite the fact

2:25:552:26:01

there were absentee athletes and

qualifications -- disqualifications.

2:26:012:26:07

1,500 metres, very precocious

talent, Tefera, just 18 years of

2:26:072:26:16

age, taking another gold for

Ethiopia. Lewandowski takes the

2:26:162:26:19

silver.

2:26:192:26:28

NATIONAL ANTHEM PLAYS

2:26:282:26:36

APPLAUSE

2:27:192:27:25

Well, six weeks ago, this young man

had never run an indoor race. He is

2:27:252:27:29

now the world record-holder for

juniors, indoors. And the World

2:27:292:27:34

Indoor Championships Samuel Tefera,

of Ethiopia.

2:27:342:27:44

STUDIO: Chris O'Hare and Jake

Wightman win that 1,500 metre race,

2:27:452:27:49

Paula Radcliffe, Jake Wightman said

he was upset and disappointed with

2:27:492:27:54

his performance in that.

Yes, I think what Jake did, he

2:27:542:27:58

reacted a little bit too much to the

mood. In a race like that when it is

2:27:582:28:02

going to go really fast at one

stage, you kind of only need to make

2:28:022:28:06

that big move ones. And he did it

two or three times and he surged a

2:28:062:28:11

bit and he will kick himself when he

looks back at the times because he

2:28:112:28:15

finished faster.

He will definitely

learn from this experience.

2:28:152:28:19

Well, the new indoor champion of the

world over the 60-metre hurdles is

2:28:192:28:24

with JJ.

2:28:242:28:25

When they make a movie about this

competition, it will involve you, a

2:28:282:28:34

Birmingham local, trying to win the

first British medal at this

2:28:342:28:37

championships in the final race on

the track, then A false start, then

2:28:372:28:40

a photo finish and you go away with

the gold, can you believe it?

No, my

2:28:402:28:45

heart stopped at the end, I knew at

the fifth hurdle, was behind and I

2:28:452:28:49

can't believe how much I wanted it,

throwing my body up the line. I just

2:28:492:28:54

about got there. This championships

has been amazing and to be voted

2:28:542:28:59

co-captain for this championships is

the biggest honour of my life. Every

2:28:592:29:03

single member of this team has just

been perfect. And I am just a later

2:29:032:29:08

that I could win at the end.

Coming

into this championship, there is a

2:29:082:29:12

lot of talk including from yourself

about how you needed to come away

2:29:122:29:15

with a medal from this, how is it

coping with that and what is the pay

2:29:152:29:19

off like?

Every interview we have

done this year, I have said I am in

2:29:192:29:24

great shape. I did in with the

fastest time, I was ranked tenth,

2:29:242:29:30

11th, but consistently, in training,

am running well and is trying to be

2:29:302:29:34

as confident as possible and

enjoying the atmosphere. I knew that

2:29:342:29:37

was coming but I knew it would be so

competitive so to win in a great

2:29:372:29:41

time is just perfect.

Becoming a

World Champion, what that will do

2:29:412:29:44

for your confidence, should Colin

Jackson be quaking in his boots?!

2:29:442:29:49

No! He has helped me an awful lot

with my career and I have the

2:29:492:29:53

benefit of having the world

record-holder helping me out.

Is

2:29:532:29:57

this a springboard for the outdoors?

Absolutely. I think I am only here

2:29:572:30:02

for a week and we go to the gold

Coast to prepare for the

2:30:022:30:06

Commonwealth Games. There is no way

I could turn down coming to

2:30:062:30:10

Birmingham for this World Indoor

Championships, an absolute delight!

2:30:102:30:14

It has been a delight to watch,

congratulations and enjoy your medal

2:30:142:30:17

ceremony.

2:30:172:30:20

He will think it is a very good

decision to do both major

2:30:202:30:24

championships. Some athletes

deciding to forego these

2:30:242:30:28

championships. Everybody has their

own personal journey and they juggle

2:30:282:30:31

their season. Laura Muir is putting

your educational needs first this

2:30:312:30:39

year. If you can win a gold medal

and go to the Commonwealths and back

2:30:392:30:43

it up, then to the European

Championships, this is the kind of

2:30:432:30:47

season you really can breakthrough.

We have talked about that since day

2:30:472:30:51

one. These championships are an

opportunity for many athletes,

2:30:512:30:54

whether it is those trying to strike

-- crack -- scratch and claw their

2:30:542:31:00

way onto the medal podium and

consistently failed to live up to be

2:31:002:31:03

potential they have shown in the

past. And then athletes like Andy,

2:31:032:31:07

just waiting for the right

opportunity and for everything to

2:31:072:31:11

happen at the right time. Frame to

be in the best shape of his life and

2:31:112:31:14

to have the right mindset. That came

true for him today. The timing is a

2:31:142:31:20

little bit odd for this season for a

lot of these championships. But for

2:31:202:31:24

some athletes it will work really

well. Like Andy Pozzi. He will go to

2:31:242:31:28

the Gold Coast. It will not be next

year when he starts to build of

2:31:282:31:35

these championships. It will be next

month. And that is a real good

2:31:352:31:39

opportunity for him.

I think

athletes spend a lot of time

2:31:392:31:44

planning about what they do and when

they do it. They have to be ready

2:31:442:31:48

when they are ready. There are so

many championships. From what I have

2:31:482:31:55

seen so far from the athletes so far

come they have managed to step up.

2:31:552:32:00

They have delivered when it matters

and utilise all the experience that

2:32:002:32:03

they have had over the years,

whether it has been a -1, but this

2:32:032:32:09

pressure has been positive. And Andy

Pozzi epitomises that from me.

Some

2:32:092:32:16

of the best in the world were here.

This is one of the events where you

2:32:162:32:19

can translate this to the outdoors.

There is little difference.

There is

2:32:192:32:25

very little difference in terms of

start and technique and speed

2:32:252:32:28

between the hurdles. This will just

continue on for another 40 metres.

2:32:282:32:33

50 metres.

2:32:332:32:38

50 metres. But you do have to look

at this situation. It is a unique

2:32:382:32:43

situation in that this is a

situation where Andy doesn't have to

2:32:432:32:47

be the fastest in the world. He just

needs to run the best race he can

2:32:472:32:50

and be clean over the hurdles. Aries

Merritt is not at his best. The

2:32:502:32:56

fastest person in the world this

year is not hear from the US. We

2:32:562:33:00

have to be honest and be realistic

about what this means for the

2:33:002:33:04

outdoors. It is great for a

confidence booster. But Andy will

2:33:042:33:08

know, he knows the best hurdlers in

the world, and this will give him

2:33:082:33:12

the confidence to compete with them.

Yes, he has to work on things

2:33:122:33:17

physically, from a speed and hurdle

perspective, to be better, to be

2:33:172:33:21

faster. Mentally, I can compete with

the best.

His mental attitude has

2:33:212:33:27

been very impressive, Pollock?

Yeah,

and you can only beat who turns up

2:33:272:33:33

on the day. That is what he has

done. That is what is important. He

2:33:332:33:37

has pulled it back. Even he said at

hurdle five he thought it was gone

2:33:372:33:42

but he was still fighting for it.

Then it comes down to how much you

2:33:422:33:45

really wanted and how much you are

focused on that big target and what

2:33:452:33:48

you are prepared to do to get there.

I think he probably said thank you

2:33:482:33:56

to: because that was a Jackson did

at the end as well!

You talk about

2:33:562:34:01

Colin and you talk about arriving at

the Championships. It is raising

2:34:012:34:06

your game. You want to take the

opportunity. Always arrive at the

2:34:062:34:13

Championships absolutely fit, you

don't always arrive. He has been

2:34:132:34:17

really good, really focused. It is

great to watch.

The pole vault

2:34:172:34:25

competition is proving, as we said

about so many of these events, it is

2:34:252:34:28

proving there is a really exciting

young crop of pole vaulters on the

2:34:282:34:33

world stage. They are using this

Arena, this platform, to just show

2:34:332:34:37

us what they are about,

2:34:372:34:39

Arena, this platform, to just show

us what they are about, Steve

2:34:392:34:39

Backley.

It bodes well, doesn't it?

Very much

2:34:392:34:43

so. They are taking their time

though. This has gone on beyond what

2:34:432:34:48

was expected. I think it was

midnight in Rio. I don't think it

2:34:482:34:52

would be that bad. But it is two

hours and 20 minutes since he

2:34:522:34:55

started this competition. And nine

athletes are still involved.

2:34:552:35:01

Including the world champion. San

Kendricks carrying a foul already.

2:35:012:35:06

5.80.

2:35:062:35:11

Filippidis agrees get ready. -- of

Greece. One of my favourite

2:35:172:35:26

performances from those Rio

Olympics, it had an entire country

2:35:262:35:31

celebrating in the street after

anyone gold in an historic

2:35:312:35:35

competition. But he has to go clear

here. This was a few moments ago.

2:35:352:35:42

But he couldn't. He couldn't do what

he did two years ago in performing

2:35:422:35:48

under pressure. The Olympic champion

not quite in shape. He has had some

2:35:482:35:54

problems since taking that title. As

we come back to see Filippidis. One

2:35:542:36:01

of the oldest. 31 years old now. The

same age as the Frenchman. First

2:36:012:36:12

attempt. Too much. This may be the

height that starts to sort out the

2:36:122:36:20

medal contenders. Nine athletes have

jumped five metres, 88 or better

2:36:202:36:25

this year. A second consecutive foul

for Filippidis. Three and he is out.

2:36:252:36:34

He will only get one more attempt at

its height. He needs to clear it. Or

2:36:342:36:40

he can pass again and go to the next

tide. He can debate that for a

2:36:402:36:44

little while.

So then, starred Yacob

of Sweden.

2:36:442:36:58

of Sweden. -- three consecutive

fouls. This is the last chance for

2:36:582:37:01

the Swede to stay involved. He has

jumped very nicely indeed this

2:37:012:37:05

afternoon. The 24-year-old. This

would be a massive lifetime best.

2:37:052:37:15

5.78 is his personal best from this

year. Outdoor personal best of 5.70.

2:37:152:37:23

Very much in new territory as he

stands back looking up at the

2:37:232:37:28

highest bar he has ever attempted.

If you think you can, you are

2:37:282:37:34

halfway there. Does he believe? 5.8

five. Final attempt.

2:37:342:37:47

five. Final attempt.

He didn't get

the poll out early enough and put

2:37:492:37:52

the energy into it. He probably

would have been quite nervous. 5.80

2:37:522:37:57

would have been a personal best for

him indoors. He has gone for it. He

2:37:572:38:02

has thought, if I can clear 5.85

that will make me competitive for

2:38:022:38:07

muddle. It is not about the

performance, it about winning.

2:38:072:38:12

Unfortunately it didn't happen for

him today. But he will live to fight

2:38:122:38:16

another day.

The Swede is done. As

we see a man, a young man, Emmanouil

2:38:162:38:28

Karalis. He went absolutely bonkers

when he went clear at five metres

2:38:282:38:35

and 80.

That was a personal best for

him. It may have been a Greek junior

2:38:352:38:40

record for him as well. That kind of

performance, we can understand why

2:38:402:38:44

he was a little happy.

5.78 was a

junior record. It stood for two

2:38:442:38:50

weeks this winter. Good attempt.

That was excellent. I loved the

2:38:502:38:59

energy. The poll may have been soft.

What I mean is when it bends it

2:38:592:39:04

takes too long to uncoil. Because it

is still uncoiling it goes past the

2:39:042:39:09

bar and knocks it off. He jumped

5.78 earlier this winter. It was on

2:39:092:39:15

the 25th of February. Armand

Duplantis of Sweden jumped 5.8 it.

2:39:152:39:22

So he held the world record for two

weeks. That has to be some kind of

2:39:222:39:27

record in itself. The coach is

looking at the video. He has got his

2:39:272:39:32

phone in his hand. He will have been

videoing and double checking before

2:39:322:39:35

making that final comment.

Kurtis

Marschall. Another young man who is

2:39:352:39:46

jumping very nicely indeed.

Experienced 20-year-old. I say that

2:39:462:39:51

because he is very good at

championships. He has proved that

2:39:512:39:57

when he was 18 at Rio and he came

tenth. 19 when he came to London

2:39:572:40:04

last summer in the outdoor version

of these championships. A strong

2:40:042:40:10

looking cut. That tiny glitch at the

start. It has been perfect sense. He

2:40:102:40:20

has not jumped indoors. So it is a

seasoned's best. World junior

2:40:202:40:24

silver-medallist two years ago. No

one clear yet at 5.80 five. Still no

2:40:242:40:33

one clear.

The bottom and was not

straight enough in front of him to

2:40:332:40:39

put the bend into the poll. Another

Australian herder -- Polter. There

2:40:392:40:47

have been quite a crop of

Australians pole vaulter. Steven

2:40:472:40:52

Caulker. -- Steve Hooker. He has got

two more attempts at this height.

We

2:40:522:41:05

have still got nine athletes

involved.

2:41:052:41:11

involved. All the big names and some

youngsters. And this man, Raphael

2:41:112:41:18

Holzdeppe. Previous champion. 28

years of age now. 5.80. He was clear

2:41:182:41:27

at the first jump. And if he can do

that again now, he will take himself

2:41:272:41:33

into the lead. For athletes have

attempted this height. All four of

2:41:332:41:39

them have failed. 5.85 then. We

haven't seen a clearance now for

2:41:392:41:49

about six, seven jumps. The pole

vaulter has gone a bit tepid at the

2:41:492:41:57

moment.

The first person who clears

this height puts themselves in the

2:41:572:42:01

medal, obviously.

2:42:012:42:10

medal, obviously. The best attempt

so far. But another foul.

From tepid

2:42:102:42:15

to Luke warm, do you think? He was

close.

It wasn't the best we have

2:42:152:42:20

seen so far. Raphael Holzdeppe in

second place. It will be the Swede

2:42:202:42:28

next. And then San Kendricks. Who

once this most? A clearance here may

2:42:282:42:39

do the job. Who knows?

I definitely

think so.

2:42:392:42:48

think so. So the full line-up there.

The last medals to be contested at

2:42:482:42:56

this world indoor Championships.

Great Britain with a young, well

2:42:562:43:01

they're not all youngsters, but

certainly an inexperienced team,

2:43:012:43:07

shall we say. Can they produce

something here a little bit special.

2:43:072:43:12

The women ended with a bronze medal

after the disqualification of

2:43:122:43:15

Jamaica. This is a good team,

Trinidad and Tobago. They were not

2:43:152:43:23

as good as we thought they might be

in qualification. Full of great

2:43:232:43:26

experience. The Czech Republic.

Maslak, because of two

2:43:262:43:38

disqualifications in the final of

the individual event, which Spain

2:43:382:43:43

won so impressively. Spain not in

this. A change because Lee Thompson

2:43:432:43:49

comes in to join these three men,

who ran superbly well. Plenderleith

2:43:492:43:55

will now be on the second leg. Jamal

Rhoden-Stevens and Lee Thompson.

2:43:552:44:02

Poland have a very strong squad.

They will be tough, very tough. I

2:44:022:44:07

expect them to be among the medals.

A real scrap for the medals, which

2:44:072:44:13

will include Belgium. Which include

three members of the same family.

2:44:132:44:23

And then the United States, who have

kept their one in four from

2:44:232:44:29

qualification.

2:44:292:44:36

qualification. So the United States

will start as favourites. But

2:44:362:44:40

there's Poland team looks good.

Belgium with a lot of experience.

2:44:402:44:43

But Great Britain, with a

performance are not even sure they

2:44:432:44:48

might have expected in

qualification, they run the fourth

2:44:482:44:52

fastest time ever by a British

quartet. -- ran. They will be led

2:44:522:44:59

off by Owen Smith. A Welshman.

Coached by Matt Elias, who was him

2:44:592:45:05

self pretty good in the relays. He

is going to hand to ground handily.

2:45:052:45:15

-- Grant Plenderleith. The former

footballer. He is on the second leg.

2:45:152:45:20

He ran the last leg yesterday. Then

Rhoden-Stevens. And Lee Thompson.

2:45:202:45:29

Plenderleith and Lee Thompson from

the same club. Sheffield.

2:45:292:45:35

We are just hearing news, the women

just winning a medal and the British

2:45:392:45:44

women have been disqualified. It is

on our computer and we will follow

2:45:442:45:48

that up. The Bretton -- the Great

British women's 4 x 400m team who

2:45:482:45:54

thought they had been advanced to a

bronze medal at Dina disqualified

2:45:542:45:58

for bumping and barging. There is

the graphic. That is for obstruction

2:45:582:46:12

or for pushing.

2:46:122:46:17

or for pushing. OK, we will get back

to that. So, Owen Smith on the first

2:46:172:46:26

leg. Kerley for the USA, Borlee, for

Belgium. Zalewski for Poland.

2:46:262:46:41

Belgium. Zalewski for Poland. Owen

Smith doing a great job in the

2:46:412:46:45

leader leg and he has to match these

big stars for pace. We are watching

2:46:452:46:54

4-lane infringements and everything,

Eagle eyes on everybody. Kerley of

2:46:542:46:58

the United States, they are the

favourites, Poland will make life

2:46:582:47:02

difficult and Owen Smith here. Great

Britain have to stave off as much as

2:47:022:47:07

they can and hope Lee Thompson

brings them a medal. Great Britain

2:47:072:47:13

just behind Trinidad and Tobago.

Fred Kerley so frustrated not to

2:47:132:47:18

make the individual, third at the US

championships and he will hand over

2:47:182:47:21

to the man who won the US title,

Michael Cherry and give them a big

2:47:212:47:28

lead. But the Polish quartet in a

good position in second place. Great

2:47:282:47:33

Britain and Northern Ireland with

work to do. In third place at the

2:47:332:47:38

moment and trying to close in on

Belgium, Plenderleith.

USA

2:47:382:47:42

absolutely flying. At that clock is

correct, on the first leg, they are

2:47:422:47:49

the world record holders, twice

broken the world records in these

2:47:492:47:52

championships. Last time was... They

have won their last six gold medals

2:47:522:48:01

after some discord occasions. The

USA leading, Poland getting closer.

2:48:012:48:05

Cherry looking a little tired.

Michael Cherry handing over to

2:48:052:48:15

Aldrich Bailey and the usual

confusion in the handover to avoid

2:48:152:48:19

the outgoing athletes. But it is

Bailey. And for Trinidad and Tobago,

2:48:192:48:25

it is Asa Guevara. And for Great

Britain, Rhoden-Stevens trying to

2:48:252:48:31

get chased on Jonathan Sacoor,

Belgium. We bought the United States

2:48:312:48:34

might go further clear but they are

being reeled in by Poland. A good

2:48:342:48:39

like by Asa Guevara for Trinidad and

is Tobago, but how much do they have

2:48:392:48:47

left?

USA, Poland, Trinidad and

Tobago, Belgium still in this, Great

2:48:472:48:51

Britain and long way to go at this

point with the baton safely in the

2:48:512:49:00

hands of Vernon Norwood. And Poland

have a great runner on the last leg

2:49:002:49:04

with five metres to chase them down.

Inside world-record pace at the

2:49:042:49:09

moment. And they are flying. Can

Vernon Norwood bring this home? A

2:49:092:49:15

lap to go, a proper battle for the

silver and bronze. United States in

2:49:152:49:19

the lead. Norwood, Zalewski, Poland.

Against Borlee, who is trying to get

2:49:192:49:29

in return. Poland moving away from

the battle for brands, USA in front,

2:49:292:49:34

Vernon Norwood coming under

pressure, look at Zalewski trying to

2:49:342:49:37

close him down! It is going to be

Poland's gold medal! Poland win it

2:49:372:49:42

in a new world record as well!

Poland stun the world of 4 x 400m

2:49:422:49:51

running. Zalewski. Sorry, Jakub

Krzewina running a brilliant last

2:49:512:50:00

leg. Look at the joy and the

surprise of one or two Mako of his

2:50:002:50:06

team-mates. We said Poland would be

amongst the medals but who knew they

2:50:062:50:14

could go that quick? The first leg

the United States were leading and

2:50:142:50:20

we saw Krzewina could finish

strongly. Norwood is probably going

2:50:202:50:25

to think, I have thrown this away

for my team, they were inside

2:50:252:50:29

world-record pace. But the last two

runners were not as strong as they

2:50:292:50:34

could have been and Great Britain

could never get on pace. A great

2:50:342:50:39

performance and the Borlee brothers

have run quick to drag their team

2:50:392:50:43

through but barring

disqualifications, bold to Poland,

2:50:432:50:46

at United States have to settle for

silver and Belgium take the bronze,

2:50:462:50:52

in a new national record for them.

You said to look out for this Polish

2:50:522:50:56

quartet before this started, at the

United States in the men's 4 x 400m

2:50:562:51:02

have a target on their back but we

have highlighted Krzewina, he just

2:51:022:51:06

missed out on a place on the

individual final and we highlighted

2:51:062:51:09

how strong he is in the closing

stages. He muscled his way past

2:51:092:51:15

Norwood, who is a high ad lib.

Krzewina bringing it home. And that

2:51:152:51:19

is as unexpected as it was widely

celebrated by Poland, astonishing

2:51:192:51:24

row. Great Britain and Northern

Ireland some way down and they could

2:51:242:51:29

not live with the pace of the

others, and great run for Belgium.

2:51:292:51:33

This is the United States's medal to

lose and what a run from Krzewina!

2:51:332:51:37

And I think when you look at the

scrap going on, at 100 separating

2:51:372:51:46

third and fourth. Krzewina out here,

just watch his team-mate crossing

2:51:462:51:51

the line. You'd think the USA have

won this the last six times, the

2:51:512:51:55

previous three when they did not

when they were disqualified, and the

2:51:552:51:59

time before that, they broke the

world record. This is that event,

2:51:592:52:04

they always win this event. Not this

time, Poland win it, a new

2:52:042:52:10

world-record, gold to Poland. United

States take the silver. And a new

2:52:102:52:15

national record for Belgium and

Trinidad and Tobago. The British

2:52:152:52:18

team ran a little quicker than they

did in the heats, I have excelled

2:52:182:52:24

themselves, in sixth place.

The women's result has changed, as

2:52:242:52:31

we mentioned. Great Britain and

Northern Ireland have been

2:52:312:52:37

disqualified now. Disqualified under

that rule that is barging, bumping,

2:52:372:52:44

obstruction is the official word.

United States take the gold, Poland

2:52:442:52:48

take the silver and Ukraine move up

to bronze because Jamaica, who

2:52:482:52:51

thought they were seconds, they were

disqualified, and Great Britain

2:52:512:52:55

moved up to third, but they were

disqualified.

2:52:552:53:00

Right, back to the Pole Vault and we

have seen a succession of fouls.

2:53:002:53:06

Piotr Lisek Kendricks and Renaud

Lavillenie the three favourites, the

2:53:062:53:12

next three athletes to try this

height of 5.85. Nobody clear yet.

2:53:122:53:22

Piotr Lisek goes clear finally. A

big jump from the big man, world

2:53:222:53:26

indoor tour winner. Very consistent.

He has jumped high SO he may have

2:53:262:53:36

more to give, but he goes into first

place.

The giants of the Pole Vault

2:53:362:53:42

have woken. Good determination. He

scared me a bit with that scream at

2:53:422:53:47

the top of the runway! Heat dashing

is more powerful than the other

2:53:472:53:55

athletes, carries the biggest poles.

Used them to good effect. But

2:53:552:53:59

Kendricks carries the shortest. But

he is so athletic on the top of the

2:53:592:54:05

pole. World outdoor champion. He has

a fail at the previous height. Now

2:54:052:54:13

5.85, the first attempt from

Kendricks and he gets it.

So

2:54:132:54:16

athletic off the top of the pole,

both him and the Polish athlete,

2:54:162:54:22

Lisek, they are confident enough

that they link 5.85, they can just

2:54:222:54:30

go to 5.85 and be confident to clear

it. They are confident and toying

2:54:302:54:36

with the competition.

Good

clearance, the next height is 5.90.

2:54:362:54:43

Earlier today in London, Sir Mo

Farah competed in the inaugural

2:54:432:54:48

half-marathon in London ahead of his

preparations for the London Marathon

2:54:482:54:51

next month and Chris Denise was

watching.

2:54:512:54:56

Away we go in the wheelchair race

and David Weir again renewing his

2:54:562:55:00

rivalry with the silver bullet in

the centre of the picture, who will

2:55:002:55:05

come out on top this time. Away we

go in the inaugural vitality

2:55:052:55:12

because, Sir Mo Farah doing battle

against Callum Hawkins, the British

2:55:122:55:17

number two, in the shades. And the

reigning London Marathon champion

2:55:172:55:22

from Kenny. Mo Farah has been

training hard at altitude

2:55:222:55:29

immediately and five miles and, is

this a decisive break? Patient in

2:55:292:55:37

the early stages, Sir Mo Farah has

opened up a gap already. There is

2:55:372:55:43

situation pack, Josh Griffis leading

the way and the gap is considerable.

2:55:432:55:51

It was just a surge. Mo Farah is

reeled in. And Callum Hawkins is

2:55:512:55:59

much closer. Shall Perdue and Louis

Partridge going straight to stride,

2:55:592:56:06

they know each other well. And it is

Callum Hawkins's turn to make a

2:56:062:56:12

brace -- a break, approaching Tower

Bridge. And Mo Farah playing his

2:56:122:56:17

part. Solid -- Charlotte Perdue has

been in great form and training in

2:56:172:56:25

Australia. Just beyond halfway. And

the three main runners in the men's

2:56:252:56:29

race still stride for stride, coming

off the bridge, with Hawkins again

2:56:292:56:34

doing the lion's share of the work.

They will do a left turn into

2:56:342:56:39

Southwark. The chasing pack again

with a lot of ground to make up.

2:56:392:56:48

Charlotte Perdue and Louis Partridge

still going together. Team-mates

2:56:482:56:51

with a bit of colour for company.

And Mo Farah, who has been quite

2:56:512:57:00

content to keep quiet at the back

and let the other two Mako do the

2:57:002:57:04

work, looking very comfortable

indeed, as if he is out for a Sunday

2:57:042:57:07

morning jog on the streets of

London. Perdue and Partridge coming

2:57:072:57:13

over Tower Bridge, still

inseparable. Have been in great form

2:57:132:57:19

in 2018. And is this Wanjiru's turn

to make his presence felt? Mo Farah

2:57:192:57:27

has been quite content to let the

others do the work. But David Weir

2:57:272:57:32

beaten once again, a comfortable

victory for the Olympic champion.

2:57:322:57:39

Victory on the streets of London

once again. Callum Hawkins making

2:57:392:57:46

another surge, will this one be

decisive? He has put in a great

2:57:462:57:50

effort today. Sally, Lily Partridge

has been dropped by Perdue and is

2:57:502:57:56

playing catch-up. And there is

Perdue, who ran so well in Japan

2:57:562:58:03

just before Christmas. Mo Farah, the

clubs are of physically and may be

2:58:032:58:08

metaphorically. Is this him saying,

enough is enough, time to get

2:58:082:58:12

racing? And they are still racing

over Tower Bridge. 200m to go, Mo

2:58:122:58:18

Farah edging in front. Half a

shortage of the track. We know all

2:58:182:58:22

about his finishing speed from his

track days, can he turn it on here?

2:58:222:58:27

Final twists and turns as we entered

Greenwich. The Cutty Sark interview.

2:58:272:58:34

Mo Farah, Wanjiru still on his

shoulder. I laughed and turn, a

2:58:342:58:39

right-hand turn, and Mo Farah, can

he turn on the style and the speed

2:58:392:58:43

for the home crowd? And there he is,

a big finish from Mo Farah in the

2:58:432:58:48

big half. He wins this race. He

wanted the win, it looks like he has

2:58:482:58:53

got the win, and Mo Farah once again

winning on the streets of London.

2:58:532:59:01

And it was all about getting the

victory here today. Charlotte

2:59:012:59:06

Perdue, what a performance. Huge

personal best. Other in minute

2:59:062:59:10

sliced from her previous lifetime

best. Small in stature, but a huge

2:59:102:59:16

talent and huge guts and we will

look out for her once again in the

2:59:162:59:19

London Marathon next month.

2:59:192:59:26

London Marathon next month. But

today was all about this man, Mo

2:59:262:59:29

Farah winning a in London. So

against all the odds, a big half

2:59:292:59:35

managed to beat the big chill.

Victory for Mo Farah, perhaps he

2:59:352:59:39

would have referred a stiffer test

today, but he looks in good shape

2:59:392:59:44

ahead of the London Marathon.

Likewise, Charlotte Purdue with a

2:59:442:59:48

huge personal best. And a Swiss

double in the wheelchair race.

2:59:482:59:54

Mo Farah winning in the inaugural

London half and we have a hotline to

2:59:573:00:01

the Farah camp because Paula

Radcliffe's husband is coaching and

3:00:013:00:07

involved with Mo's new career on the

roads, how are things going? What is

3:00:073:00:10

the word inside the camp?

3:00:103:00:15

I think training has gone well. He

is in good shape. I know that he

3:00:153:00:20

doesn't particularly enjoy running

in cold conditions. Today was

3:00:203:00:22

probably about getting the job done.

He now has got another hard block of

3:00:223:00:27

training to knuckle down to and he

needs to get back working on that

3:00:273:00:31

one.

Was he secretly hoping that

would be called off because of the

3:00:313:00:37

snow?

No. It is part of the build-up

plan. Especially when you have flung

3:00:373:00:42

back from Ethiopia to take part.

That was slightly facetious. What

3:00:423:00:46

busy finding lifelike? I did some

television with at the end of last

3:00:463:00:53

season. The producers have -- said,

he has retired, hasn't he? And I

3:00:533:00:59

said, no, think it will be more in

terms of milage when he trains. How

3:00:593:01:05

does it work now, his new life?

It

is working different systems. I

3:01:053:01:10

think he kind of got a little bit of

a shop in 2014 when he tried the

3:01:103:01:15

London Marathon. He knew there were

certain changes he needed to make.

3:01:153:01:19

He accepted the training would be

difficult and he wanted to take that

3:01:193:01:22

challenge on. He's really happy with

how he has adapted and how things

3:01:223:01:25

have moved on in the last couple of

months. I know he is really excited

3:01:253:01:29

about going on the streets of

London. He got a little taste of

3:01:293:01:32

beer with the crowds this morning.

It will be a much bigger stage than

3:01:323:01:35

that in April. He wants to be ready.

April 22. Anything can happen in the

3:01:353:01:41

next month in this country with the

weather. It could be 70 degrees by

3:01:413:01:47

then. Let's stay inside. We have

still got a great pole vault

3:01:473:01:54

competition to bring you.

Steve

3:01:543:01:56

competition to bring you.

Steve Backley.

A little look back.

3:01:563:02:02

We saw Kendricks of the United

States and the polish volta go

3:02:023:02:05

clear. Renaud Lavillenie has spent

less energy than anybody else at

3:02:053:02:12

this point. One height cleared,

5.70. 5.8 five. Very comfortable

3:02:123:02:20

indeed.

He means business. Much

straighter going towards the 12

3:02:203:02:26

o'clock at the top of the pole.

3:02:263:02:32

o'clock at the top of the pole. Two

voltas in them one half hours. Not a

3:02:333:02:36

bad day's work. That may be an

important factor because he has not

3:02:363:02:41

spent energy and everybody else has.

The business end of this competition

3:02:413:02:45

is about to unfold probably between

San Kendricks of the United States

3:02:453:02:50

and Renaud Lavillenie. Can Raphael

Holzdeppe join them? 5.90. First

3:02:503:02:59

attempt.

Didn't get that right at

all.

A bit of a mess. At full

3:02:593:03:10

stretch. He fouls.

3:03:103:03:21

stretch. He fouls. Season's best is

five metres and 80. So he is in new

3:03:213:03:25

territory and it is showing.

3:03:253:03:28

five metres and 80. So he is in new

territory and it is showing.

3:03:283:03:31

You may have heard the British women

have been disqualified from the

3:03:313:03:35

4x400 medal that they only got

because of a disqualification to

3:03:353:03:39

Jamaica. They finished fourth.

Jamaica were disqualified. Now

3:03:393:03:43

Britain have been disqualified. We

have looked forensically at the

3:03:433:03:47

footage and we can't find anything

that would indicate why. We know the

3:03:473:03:52

rule but we can't see anything. It

does add a up to 22

3:03:523:03:56

disqualifications in total. All the

talk last night was about how many

3:03:563:04:02

there had been for a foot over the

line infringement, which is not rule

3:04:023:04:08

163. That is obstruction. I will

remember the number in a minute.

3:04:083:04:11

This was only matched by the last

time the world in thes were held in

3:04:113:04:17

Birmingham. In the meantime, there

have only been one, three, four,

3:04:173:04:24

four. This is by far the worst

place, it would seem, are the best

3:04:243:04:28

place, depending on how you want to

look at it, for disqualification is.

3:04:283:04:30

Why would that be? I asked some

people this morning. I still didn't

3:04:303:04:37

get a very good answer. I was told

with regard to the lane

3:04:373:04:40

infringements that there is an area

on the track that should be flat but

3:04:403:04:44

it has curveds. I didn't get any

more information than that. It

3:04:443:04:49

didn't make sense to me. So don't

blame me. That is what I was told.

3:04:493:04:55

Regardless of that, I believe the

IAAF will have to do something about

3:04:553:05:02

this. The problem with the lane

infractions, this was at an absurd

3:05:023:05:08

level. If you step on the line one

time, there are probably shouldn't

3:05:083:05:12

be an infraction because you are not

gaining that much of an advantage. I

3:05:123:05:16

understand the rules and I

understand if you cut the line you

3:05:163:05:20

gain an advantage. No problem. I

understand that. But when it amounts

3:05:203:05:26

to this number of disqualifications

and confusion, I think the fans get

3:05:263:05:29

to a point after a while where they

have checked out watching the event.

3:05:293:05:36

And they are like, I think I know

who won but I'm not quite sure and I

3:05:363:05:40

just watched the race. That is no

fun for the fans.

It spoils the

3:05:403:05:45

enjoyment, it's confusing and it is

just no fun. Athletes don't

3:05:453:05:48

deliberately try to bend the rules

in that way on the track. I don't

3:05:483:05:53

know if you remember in 95, you were

there in Gothenberg, that one

3:05:533:06:00

outdoor competition that I remember

competing in heptathlon, there were

3:06:003:06:08

55 disqualifications of various

orders in that won championships.

3:06:083:06:11

Gwen Torrence. Maria Bartolo. It

does happen. -- Maria Metella. It

3:06:113:06:20

has been bad here as well.

It is a

Catch-22. You have to enforce the

3:06:203:06:26

rules, otherwise there are athletes

who will try to take advantage of

3:06:263:06:28

that. But you have to make sure that

it works in the best way for the

3:06:283:06:32

sport as well. There are two issues.

We are talking about the lane

3:06:323:06:38

infringementss and the jostling and

the bumping and barging. They are

3:06:383:06:43

the main reasons. Bumping and

barging as part of the indoor

3:06:433:06:45

racing.

3:06:453:06:46

barging as part of the indoor

racing.

3:06:463:06:46

Thank you. San Kendricks about to

go. We will return to this.

3:06:463:06:53

This could be a critical job. Five

metres and 90. Second place at the

3:06:533:06:59

moment. First attempt. Not today.

Kendricks unable to go clear. We

3:06:593:07:08

have had five athletes attempt this

new height already. Five failures.

3:07:083:07:13

Only Renaud Lavillenie left to try.

He may have just got the Brighton

3:07:133:07:21

wrong place. Just goes through the

bar. You can move the bar back and

3:07:213:07:29

forth. 80 centimetres back and 40

centimetres forward. You may catch a

3:07:293:07:35

glimpse of another clock out there

with a red frame on it which is got

3:07:353:07:39

the numbers on it. That indicates

worthy competitors the bar.

3:07:393:07:45

Kendricks does have good memories of

competing on British soil. Champion

3:07:453:07:49

last summer in London. As does this

man, champion in the Olympics in

3:07:493:07:56

2010. Renaud Lavillenie, a perfect

card. And he knows because of the

3:07:563:08:06

faileds of his competitors, if he

goes clear at this height, this

3:08:063:08:10

could be a gold medal winning jump.

Two jumps, Mata clearances. He is in

3:08:103:08:23

first place anyway. This to extend

his lead and possibly extend it.

3:08:233:08:33

Great speed on the runway. I want to

see that a second time. He was great

3:08:353:08:42

over 5.80 five. You want to see what

the differences between the two.

He

3:08:423:08:48

seemed to be in the band for a long

time. I don't know if his pole is

3:08:483:08:52

soft. It seems for a fraction of a

second it didn't catapult him up.

He

3:08:523:08:58

may need to change poles. Get a

stiffer pole. It will uncoil

3:08:583:09:07

quicker. Obviously you have got to

run fast and put the energy in as

3:09:073:09:10

well.

He is so meticulous in his

methods, Renaud Lavillenie. So we

3:09:103:09:19

have still got six athletes. The

young man, a manual chorale is

3:09:193:09:33

looking for silence. -- Emmanouil

Karalis. This is his last attempt.

3:09:333:09:39

Three consecutives and you out. This

is that moment for the youngster. He

3:09:393:09:44

asked for silence and he has got it.

Now he wants the crowd to join in.

3:09:443:09:48

He is in control.

I think so. Every

athlete goes through their own

3:09:483:09:56

little rituals as to what they want

and how they compose themselves and

3:09:563:09:59

get their mind ready before they

compete.

3:09:593:10:06

compete.

This for a new world junior

record. A big ask for the young man

3:10:073:10:11

from Greece. That was a good jump.

It was. He didn't get the pole away

3:10:113:10:18

early enough. It was low on his

right hand in terms of planting.

3:10:183:10:21

That way you go underneath the pole

and you don't get the energy to

3:10:213:10:26

penetrate. Great attempt.

Fifth in

the world Championships at 18 years

3:10:263:10:33

of age is pretty impressive in

itself. Looking down the card,

3:10:333:10:42

noughts and crosses across the

screen, Renaud Lavillenie out in

3:10:423:10:46

front. 5.8 five. Still no unclear at

this height. Emmanouil Karalis

3:10:463:10:57

appreciative of the support. I look

forward to seeing how his career

3:10:573:11:00

progresses. A big prospect.

3:11:003:11:08

This pole competition, as thrilling

as it is, unfortunately means we

3:11:113:11:14

will not get the medal ceremony for

Andy Pozzi's gold. As soon as we go

3:11:143:11:21

off air, we will have the rest of

the pole vault and the ceremony on

3:11:213:11:25

the BBC's website. You will be able

to see it. We have a couple of

3:11:253:11:29

minutes left. 25 hours of live

coverage of these World Athletics

3:11:293:11:34

Championships. I guess highlights is

the final thoughts, Michael?

For me,

3:11:343:11:40

oddly enough for these

championships, one of the first

3:11:403:11:43

where I can remember at all of the

field events. They were extremely

3:11:433:11:47

competitive. As in the pole vaulter

which we are seeing right now. Very

3:11:473:11:51

competitive in the high jump. Right

through with the triple jump

3:11:513:11:56

yesterday. It has been great, the

field events. The quality of the

3:11:563:12:03

competition but also the

competition.

3:12:033:12:08

competition.

We want to tie

competitions where the leads are

3:12:083:12:11

changing every time. The field

events have delivered. It has been

3:12:113:12:15

fantastic to watch. I think Britain

have stepped up massively. I am

3:12:153:12:19

pleased with the medal haul. I think

I said we would be light on the

3:12:193:12:23

ground but they have been fantastic.

The fact that certain individuals

3:12:233:12:27

knocking on the door, Laura Muir

etc, have pushed themselves through?

3:12:273:12:35

Yes, this time they have delivered

and they have delivered in a big

3:12:353:12:38

way. Laura Muir and cagey tea have

really done that. So special to see

3:12:383:12:46

Laura come through.

And your city of

Birmingham has done you proud,

3:12:463:12:54

Denise. Like the rest of the country

we have had some terrible weather

3:12:543:12:57

here in the last few days but the

crowds have enjoyed this?

They have

3:12:573:13:01

battled through the snow, the slides

and the awful conditions to be here.

3:13:013:13:07

Athletics is a very popular sport in

this city. We have our trials. This

3:13:073:13:13

is another reflection of what for me

has been a really good

3:13:133:13:15

Championships.

Michael, you are

coming back with us for the

3:13:153:13:20

Commonwealth Games.

I look forward

to it.

We are doing that in Salford.

3:13:203:13:25

Don't be getting a plane to

Australia. I would have been gone!

3:13:253:13:29

Thanks so much. And to the

production team, who make all of

3:13:293:13:34

these things so successful. We leave

you with images and memories of a

3:13:343:13:41

great British icon, Sir Roger

Bannister.

3:13:413:13:43

From all of us, good night.

-- goodbye.

Well, I remember it very

3:13:433:13:48

well. The main problem was that the

weather was so bad. What I was told

3:13:483:13:55

by Mike coach in the morning, he

said, "I think you can run a 3.56,

3:13:553:14:01

and if you don't think -- take this

opportunity when it is presented,

3:14:013:14:06

for the rest of your life you may

never forgive yourself.

3:14:063:14:08

"

3:14:083:14:14

When I overtook Chris chat away, I

began to feel the pain.

3:14:153:14:29

I collapsed as I crossed the tape.

But then I recovered sufficiently to

3:14:293:14:36

hear him announcing...

Ladies and gentlemen, here is the

3:14:363:14:41

result.

R G Bannister.

Subject to

3:14:413:14:48

ratification would be a new world

record, three... And after that the

3:14:483:14:52

noise of the crowd blizzard --

obliterated the remainder of his

3:14:523:14:57

announcement.

3:14:573:14:59
