LineFromTo

Another gymnast with a beautiful straight line through the back, but

:00:00.:00:00.

that swing was meant to be two-way handstand, and it was well off. The

:00:00.:00:09.

next element was very nice, and the somersault was ambitious, but when

:00:10.:00:13.

you have to swing backwards and forwards at the end of it, you lose

:00:14.:00:18.

all you have gained in doing it. Some flights there, a little and

:00:19.:00:23.

gamely, legs high on the catch. But he swings well. -- a little

:00:24.:00:26.

ungainly. Up into the dismount, double pike,

:00:27.:00:39.

well flighted. It is a good standard of gymnastics in this top 24, you

:00:40.:00:44.

know, from all the nations and regions we are seeing. Really great

:00:45.:00:49.

to it. As crisps head, his geography went a little bit awry. -- as Chris

:00:50.:00:56.

said. But he stuck with it, good dismount. It is interesting, when

:00:57.:01:03.

you talk about this new code, the changes in difficulty and execution,

:01:04.:01:07.

what an impact it has had on gymnastics from a global scale,

:01:08.:01:12.

Mitch. It has indeed, and now what the judges have done, they have gone

:01:13.:01:19.

full is Opel, back to focusing on E score rather than difficulty. --

:01:20.:01:26.

they have gone. Gulp. Now the E judges have really got their act

:01:27.:01:29.

together, and it is very tough to get a big score. That, in a way, is

:01:30.:01:40.

the responsibility of the sport to make sure everything is safely done.

:01:41.:01:44.

If you give more marks for execution and you do not encourage people to

:01:45.:01:48.

do skills they cannot do, you're being irresponsible.

:01:49.:02:24.

Some gymnasts take that out to handstand. He is swinging well, lots

:02:25.:02:34.

of speed. Adding the difficulty by increasing the turns. Let's see if

:02:35.:02:38.

he can time the dismount properly. He knows where he is in the air,

:02:39.:02:44.

that is the shore. That is good from the Indian gymnast. I think the body

:02:45.:02:50.

needs to get the oil pan out on that bar. You could hear its squeaking.

:02:51.:03:06.

Ashish Kumar is into 19th. Still a lot of gymnastics to come. Two more

:03:07.:03:19.

pieces. Kristofer Done, this is his halfway stage of the competition. He

:03:20.:03:24.

made those moves but he made them look hard. That is when the judges

:03:25.:03:26.

have a field day. He just catches the toes as he lifts

:03:27.:03:47.

into handstand. He needs to tuck his head in a little bit. You do not

:03:48.:03:53.

want to see the gymnast's ears. You want one straight line from fingers

:03:54.:03:59.

to toes. A good dismount. Such a popular dismount this double pike

:04:00.:04:05.

back somersault. He is delighted with that clean performance. You

:04:06.:04:09.

made the point earlier about the technique and style with the New

:04:10.:04:12.

Zealanders. They have really come on well.

:04:13.:04:26.

No doubt the judges will be having a good chat about the low deliveries

:04:27.:04:35.

on a lot of the moves. Yes, it changes the value of them, if it

:04:36.:04:39.

comes out to handstand it is one value, if it is out late, it is a

:04:40.:04:45.

different value. That is how the difficulty scores can one day be a

:04:46.:04:52.

little bit higher than the next. Keatings thinking ahead to parallel

:04:53.:04:58.

bars. His coaches to his right. It has been interesting in that team

:04:59.:05:07.

competition because Paul Hall, he is obviously keeping an eye on England

:05:08.:05:12.

as well at the same time, there was a battle between coaches in the team

:05:13.:05:16.

competition as well as far as the British team are concerned. The

:05:17.:05:27.

interesting thing is the coaches work in the same region and our

:05:28.:05:32.

close friends, one in each camp. The South African. Onto the bar. He is

:05:33.:05:35.

20 years old. You saw him changing to an ordinary

:05:36.:06:04.

forward grip. Smooth with a full term. He is swinging backwards as

:06:05.:06:14.

well. A full twisting double cup. A little bit easier than the full

:06:15.:06:19.

twist in the double straight division. He is happy to have gone

:06:20.:06:20.

through without any major errors. The last gymnast up on parallel bars

:06:21.:06:45.

in this rotation, the 24-year-old David Bishop.

:06:46.:06:58.

A very short routine from him. Very short. He might be carrying an

:06:59.:07:26.

injury or something but that was a very, very short routine. If the

:07:27.:07:33.

gymnasts actually do less than a certain number of moves that this

:07:34.:07:37.

score is cut in half so they will have all worked out to make sure

:07:38.:07:41.

they include the minimum number of moves, when today? They will have. I

:07:42.:07:49.

wonder if we came to that routine halfway through for some reason

:07:50.:07:56.

because it was extremely short. They have worked on the basis of the less

:07:57.:08:01.

moves you do, the less deductions you can get. If you are not great at

:08:02.:08:07.

it, make it short and sharp. One thing is the shore, the judges will

:08:08.:08:12.

not be long, which for the lads waiting to move on to

:08:13.:08:14.

not be long, which for the lads from fault will be well received.

:08:15.:08:21.

not be long, which for the lads Max Whitlock. He takes a little norm

:08:22.:08:26.

there. I am sure that as nerves, not boredom. -- yawn. Fire macro he is

:08:27.:08:32.

doing a fair bit of pacing. Keatings absolutely in the zone. He

:08:33.:08:51.

made his mistakes in the team final with the parallel dismount.

:08:52.:09:13.

The last gymnast up on the high bars, Siphesihle Biyase from South

:09:14.:09:21.

Africa. He is holding his nerves. South Africa have done well in the

:09:22.:09:26.

competition with three gymnasts in the final. That was a bit lopsided

:09:27.:09:36.

there. He had loads of swing to be able to go into the giant.

:09:37.:09:46.

That was his close bar element. He went for the forward circle. He did

:09:47.:09:54.

another one, much better that time. Quite a difficult element. He is

:09:55.:10:04.

swinging well now. A double twist, double straight. He built that

:10:05.:10:08.

routine very nicely. Very good attempt. As you say, the South

:10:09.:10:18.

Africans have posted a lot of potential in these Commonwealth

:10:19.:10:25.

Games. Very good in the team competition and he as an individual.

:10:26.:10:37.

Two thirds of the way through the competition. Whitlock still

:10:38.:10:50.

focusing. A mix of nations and all with the same joy at being here. It

:10:51.:10:59.

is a great arena and fabulous audiences. It has been full every

:11:00.:11:01.

day. So it is Keatings just behind

:11:02.:11:15.

Whitlock at the moment. I say just behind, there are two marks between

:11:16.:11:22.

them. And then Purvis is just outside the medals at the moment.

:11:23.:11:26.

All is not lost going into what is the fourth piece of apparatus. It is

:11:27.:11:32.

not. He had the slight step to the side but he has got the difficulty.

:11:33.:11:36.

He is one of the top scorers on vault so that is where he has pulled

:11:37.:11:42.

back his marks. Parallel bars is a strong piece for Daniel. This one

:11:43.:11:49.

will go down to the wire. As far as second or third is concerned. We saw

:11:50.:11:53.

Daniel Keatings of Scotland, with his head down, just trying to remain

:11:54.:11:59.

as composed as possible. He has gone superbly throughout this

:12:00.:12:04.

competition. He is having a fantastic competition. And

:12:05.:12:10.

obviously, the crowd will begin airing up even more. Does not help

:12:11.:12:15.

when he watches Max Whitlock vault out of his skin. We have talked

:12:16.:12:21.

about is it worth posting the difficulty but he posted a six. He

:12:22.:12:29.

is one of very few in the world who can do this fault. He is preparing

:12:30.:12:35.

ready for Rio and this year's World Championships. He really needs to

:12:36.:12:40.

keep doing it and getting the competition preparation. He can

:12:41.:12:45.

afford to take a few steps and use that experience. He in himself, he

:12:46.:12:52.

is looking nervous. We saw him taking on oxygen and for the first

:12:53.:12:58.

time we have seen him taking on pressure. The chase is more exciting

:12:59.:13:05.

than maintaining the level you are at. He is in a difficult part of his

:13:06.:13:10.

career. He has all the expectation on him and I have seen him a lot

:13:11.:13:17.

pacing. As you can see, Max Whitlock with two more pieces of apparatus to

:13:18.:13:20.

go is ahead of Daniel Keatings of Scotland, Nile Wilson of England,

:13:21.:13:27.

then back to Scotland with Daniel Purvis. It is wonderful to see all

:13:28.:13:33.

the home nations up there. Jelena grid three Scottish, two English and

:13:34.:13:40.

a Welsh guy all in the top seven. That is great for British

:13:41.:13:45.

gymnastics. Moving onto the parallel bars, it is seen as a similar piece

:13:46.:13:51.

to the pommel horse, because it is a supporting peace. You have seen a

:13:52.:13:56.

lot of them in the qualification go through the routines and maybe take

:13:57.:14:02.

the big step on the dismount and Daniel Keatings had a fall, so they

:14:03.:14:04.

have got to concentrate right down to the last minute. But step

:14:05.:14:07.

forward, step back or fall, could be the difference between a medal or

:14:08.:14:12.

not at these championships. It is all about the two bars here which is

:14:13.:14:17.

your forte as well. The lads get a bit of time to adjust it

:14:18.:14:19.

your forte as well. The lads get a bit of time because you can move the

:14:20.:14:23.

apparatus to suit you. Every gymnast will have their own wit. They put

:14:24.:14:29.

highly on it and they make a bit of time to make sure it is prepared.

:14:30.:14:35.

Going into this, it is obviously going to be Whitlock, Keatings,

:14:36.:14:44.

Wilson! Purvis is still there, he is only .5 behind. It is a strong

:14:45.:14:49.

piece. Do you know what, they all deserve it. They have all been up

:14:50.:14:54.

there at some stage. Nile is a junior, he is

:14:55.:14:55.

there at some stage. Nile is a junior, he only a few weeks out of

:14:56.:15:00.

the Junior Europeans. How is he doing it? He has done a lot of work

:15:01.:15:06.

alongside the senior boys so he has seen Howard they have been training.

:15:07.:15:12.

He was just incredible. He has got that focus and he is determined. He

:15:13.:15:16.

knows what he has got to do. The routines are so easy for him. Let's

:15:17.:15:22.

have a look at who is lining up and what order they will be going in on

:15:23.:15:27.

this piece of apparatus. The two Australian lads are chalking up the

:15:28.:15:28.

bar. Daniel Keatings and Nile Wilson have

:15:29.:15:44.

got a long wait. The vault was over pretty quickly so they had to wait

:15:45.:15:47.

and watch the rest of the gymnasts go round. And then him being the

:15:48.:15:51.

penultimate gymnast, that will play with his mind. But Daniel is an

:15:52.:15:58.

experienced gymnast. He will take himself off to a corner and prepare.

:15:59.:16:04.

He will have prepared for this. Doing the championships, that

:16:05.:16:07.

something you have to expect, sometimes you have to wait half an

:16:08.:16:14.

hour. How deflated you think Frank Baines will be feeling? It is

:16:15.:16:20.

difficult. He had a serious accident last year. He wants to perform to

:16:21.:16:24.

his best that he has another two apparatus to show he has the mental

:16:25.:16:30.

strength to get going. Let's get back to the action with Mitch and

:16:31.:16:31.

Christine in the commentary box. routine of Mikhail Koudinov. He has

:16:32.:16:48.

done very well, a very stylish gymnast, from New Zealand. Showing

:16:49.:16:56.

his style, holding the shape beautifully. Each gymnast is allowed

:16:57.:17:04.

to include one roll-out in their routine. He needs to land on his

:17:05.:17:12.

feet. A double twist. He does. Opened with a very nice straight

:17:13.:17:17.

front, Egypt double front somersault. Controlled and good for

:17:18.:17:26.

work. -- a double front. -- floor work.

:17:27.:17:34.

First up for Wales is Iwan Mepham. One of the youngest gymnasts here,

:17:35.:17:45.

17 years old, from Wales. Straight into his release element. Good

:17:46.:17:50.

flight. Another big release. Lovely technique.

:17:51.:17:57.

The turns are meant to be any -- as near to hand stand as possible, that

:17:58.:18:07.

was a bit late. But he is swinging with confidence. Building got the

:18:08.:18:17.

swing changes. He lives at high. -- holding up. That was a shame. One

:18:18.:18:24.

mark deducted. And it was going so well, he was swinging with

:18:25.:18:29.

confidence. What a shame. He has worked with confidence, he was very

:18:30.:18:34.

cross with himself. The leader of the men's competition is first. On

:18:35.:18:43.

parallel bars for this group. He is putting on some guards to show as he

:18:44.:18:47.

will do a lot of work in that position. -- to show is. Swinging

:18:48.:18:54.

from the shoulder. He has a bag of chalky rings -- of chalk that the

:18:55.:19:09.

rings from his own gym. He is taking his mind off things because whatever

:19:10.:19:12.

he watches will not do him any good. Go to a happy place! Do your

:19:13.:19:35.

routine. Max Whitlock leading this all-round competition. Two marks. A

:19:36.:19:36.

clean somersault. Double tuck. He is swinging. Nice

:19:37.:19:40.

shape selection. Forward swing. Down to one bar. A

:19:41.:20:14.

nice handstand from it. Double pike, and a skip back. He really is

:20:15.:20:24.

focused. He is looking so classy. We will see him again in the parallel

:20:25.:20:38.

bar final, the fifth piece -- the fifth highest score on that piece of

:20:39.:20:49.

apparatus in qualifications so far. It is the dream competition for six

:20:50.:20:58.

to floor. He looks totally in control. For all the pacing. -- Max

:20:59.:21:02.

Whitlock. That hands down on the dismount was costly. 14.1.

:21:03.:21:11.

Panagiotis Aristotelous, he did get into the high bar final in Delhi in

:21:12.:21:17.

the Commonwealth Games. How much work has he been putting on over the

:21:18.:21:26.

last four years? -- putting in. Shop and smooth to open with. Quickly you

:21:27.:21:35.

can make those pirouettes. His coaches hovering. Something big is

:21:36.:21:41.

going to come. -- his coach is hovering. He had to upstart out of

:21:42.:21:55.

it and it now looks like he is using an exit routine. Nice shape at the

:21:56.:22:09.

top. The gymnasts have to swing backwards and forwards. The

:22:10.:22:13.

shoulders plummeted. Double, double. He was a bit disappointed. There

:22:14.:22:17.

were too many errors. Even at the end, I do not know where his

:22:18.:22:21.

deductions would have stopped because he wandered up to the

:22:22.:22:25.

dismount and then he saluted the judges. 14.966. Very close to the

:22:26.:22:36.

golden 15. Max Whitlock now well ahead. Nice to have margins for

:22:37.:22:46.

error. Another battle is for silver and bronze. Daniel Keatings in the

:22:47.:22:53.

silver medal position. What a competition Clinton Purnell is

:22:54.:22:58.

having. In fifth position at the moment. Behind Daniel Purvis.

:22:59.:23:11.

Hesitation in the swing. Locked out the handstand nicely. Both those

:23:12.:23:19.

skills. He really needs to keep focused now because this is the best

:23:20.:23:24.

competition in terms of scoring and consistency that he has ever had at

:23:25.:23:35.

this level. He keeps the swing. A swinging half term. Double pike. He

:23:36.:23:43.

is keeping it up. He did well with that dismount to just have one pace

:23:44.:23:48.

back, it could have been a lot worse. It could, it was a bit flat.

:23:49.:23:55.

Others have sat down when they have landed like that. This is his terms

:23:56.:23:59.

and he is not going to throw it away. The score for Panagiotis

:24:00.:24:06.

Aristotelous on high bars. That takes him temporarily into fourth.

:24:07.:24:10.

When you said he wandered off, he almost said to the judges, that was

:24:11.:24:15.

rubbish. Utterly deflated. You have to keep the show up. The high bar

:24:16.:24:22.

lies in wait for the gymnast from Singapore. China starts his swing.

:24:23.:24:34.

-- Gabriel Gan. So many gymnasts choosing to start with that and he

:24:35.:24:38.

is showing as he cannot do it, missing it twice. -- showing others.

:24:39.:24:46.

It would have been better with his feet together at the beginning. Now

:24:47.:24:53.

he has got going much better. And a good dislocation. He has got very

:24:54.:25:01.

nice work, this gymnast. Double straight dismount. So nothing wrong

:25:02.:25:09.

with his feet on the landing. At that as a coach, you would like to

:25:10.:25:13.

get your hands on that gymnast. Huge potential, lovely shape. The shapes

:25:14.:25:18.

he is making without twists are perfect. The basic swing is

:25:19.:25:26.

beautiful. Talk .9. Clinton Purnell. -- 12.9. A young Nile Wilson watches

:25:27.:25:44.

on. Scott is the thumbs up. It is going ever so well for you, mate!

:25:45.:25:55.

Luke Wadsworth for Australia now, and he was not too shabby on this in

:25:56.:26:02.

qualification. Yes, he is a small man with soft and supple shoulders.

:26:03.:26:08.

That is why the apparatus suits him. A double move between gymnast and

:26:09.:26:15.

coach. He did well to rescue that. Slight bent arms on the first two

:26:16.:26:20.

elements and that is very difficult. A double grasp on one rail.

:26:21.:26:32.

Has he got his geography right? Back. In the right position. Good

:26:33.:26:44.

upgrades, this had better be a front. Nicely done, keeping good

:26:45.:26:53.

swing. Double pike. A pace back, and a few scary moments at the start. He

:26:54.:27:00.

sorted his arms out eventually. And he is preparing the bars for his

:27:01.:27:09.

team-mates. Good team spirit, salute and go back to the parallel bars and

:27:10.:27:13.

give as much preparation time as possible. And keep the competition

:27:14.:27:20.

moving. 10.933, the lowest high Bosco we have seen. Gabriel Gan. He

:27:21.:27:27.

had effectively two falls on the apparatus when he tried to straddle

:27:28.:27:31.

up to handstand twice, and that was very costly. Rakesh Patra. We have

:27:32.:27:39.

been so impressed with him. In any strong elements of the apparatus

:27:40.:27:43.

that requires strength. Not so much flowing in the swinging but maybe

:27:44.:27:49.

that will improve here, Chris. This will be a test for him and it looks

:27:50.:27:51.

like he is going for it. will be a test for him and it looks

:27:52.:27:55.

like he is With a half turn, lovely swing out. Not a gymnast to hold

:27:56.:28:07.

back, I do not think. He has used that skill twice. A half turn.

:28:08.:28:24.

best and that was it bit late on the dislocation. -- a bit. But the

:28:25.:28:30.

energy is really good. I hope the times this dismount properly. He

:28:31.:28:35.

kicks back, a fall twisting, that was good. What was a very optimistic

:28:36.:28:44.

routine from a difficulty perspective, he had a go. He had a

:28:45.:28:49.

go, but it was controlled, he knew what he was doing. It was not just

:28:50.:28:57.

wild. Rakesh Patra obviously putting in a lot of work in the gym. A hope

:28:58.:29:03.

for the future. One of the highest scores of his five so far, one more

:29:04.:29:09.

piece to go for him. Two more for this young man, 21 years old, and he

:29:10.:29:14.

will be the last gymnast on parallel bars so still a bit of a wait for

:29:15.:29:22.

Max. Naoya Tsukahara will set the pace and the tempo nice -- now.

:29:23.:29:28.

Beautiful to watch on this apparatus and the qualified with the fourth

:29:29.:29:37.

prize score in qualification. -- fourth highest score. It was a

:29:38.:29:43.

beautiful exercise. Can he bring it out again? Slight you short, it is a

:29:44.:29:52.

difficult skill. -- slightly short. And the second was slightly short.

:29:53.:29:55.

Not quite the edge he had in qualifying. But that was beautiful.

:29:56.:30:00.

He keeps the swing. Just squeezing it through. You can

:30:01.:30:27.

see the tension is not there that was there in qualifying. The double

:30:28.:30:36.

pike is impressive. He was in sixth position after the last rotation. A

:30:37.:30:41.

reminder that Max Whitlock of England's leaders after the last

:30:42.:30:47.

rotation. Daniel Keatings of Scotland in second. Nile Wilson of

:30:48.:31:05.

England in third. Ashish Kumar on high bar. He managed to get into the

:31:06.:31:12.

overall competition in Delhi in front of the home crowd. They can

:31:13.:31:18.

give a lift to their gymnasts. And he has impressed here.

:31:19.:31:35.

to grow an extra few centimetres to make that catch.

:31:36.:31:42.

Keep the swing going. He just over controlled it. The

:31:43.:31:47.

Keep the swing going. He just over controlled it. pace of the routine

:31:48.:31:50.

changes depending on what you want from it. You can see when he is

:31:51.:31:58.

going to turn, he brings his hands in close. Not the most difficult

:31:59.:32:05.

dismount but nice work. It floated away from the bar. It was a

:32:06.:32:12.

delightful dismount. A good view of the Pact Hydro arena.

:32:13.:32:26.

Tsukahara has one more piece of apparatus to go.

:32:27.:32:34.

Daniel Purvis is just .5 outside of the medals after the last rotation.

:32:35.:32:44.

This is a very, very important piece for him. And it is a good piece for

:32:45.:32:48.

him. He made a mistake but recovered

:32:49.:32:59.

well. Dan Purvis has got himself together

:33:00.:33:16.

after what could have been a big problem. Straddle front, nicely

:33:17.:33:18.

done. A double pike and he landed it

:33:19.:33:32.

nicely. There was a hairy moment right at the start of that routine.

:33:33.:33:40.

He has just got to hope that the judges will be kind. The difficulty

:33:41.:33:49.

will be down a little bit as he left at the one rail element. But he got

:33:50.:33:54.

through cleanly. I do not think it will be a good enough routine to

:33:55.:33:57.

make inroads if all the others work well. They have all got yet to go.

:33:58.:34:29.

He is quite tall gymnast, swinging powerfully. One and a half

:34:30.:34:44.

pirouettes. Up very nicely into handstand. The legs shot out at the

:34:45.:34:49.

right moment. A strong Tkachev with half turn.

:34:50.:35:05.

This is a very impressive routine. He was very late putting the twist

:35:06.:35:20.

in. A good landing. That is his fifth piece of apparatus over with.

:35:21.:35:24.

One more to go and the New Zealanders will finish on the floor.

:35:25.:35:31.

They really have made great strides, Christine, in terms of style and

:35:32.:35:36.

putting good exercise together. New Zealand are impressing at these

:35:37.:35:37.

championships. Oh dear, it will not be good enough.

:35:38.:36:03.

Every 10th is vital. I have just been doing some maths. It is not my

:36:04.:36:12.

strong point. Frank Baines for Scotland on his penultimate piece of

:36:13.:36:13.

apparatus. Very unusual preparation technique

:36:14.:36:32.

but it is paying off for him. He is swinging well in support. He

:36:33.:36:57.

sets up the double pike, very nice, very clean, well done. He has come

:36:58.:37:06.

back on song. Frank Baines, the highest qualifier on parallel bars.

:37:07.:37:11.

We will see him again and that routine again on the parallel bars

:37:12.:37:18.

final the day after tomorrow. But this is a crucial routine for Daniel

:37:19.:37:24.

Keatings. We will get Kristofer Done's score from high bar first. He

:37:25.:37:32.

is into seventh at the moment. It is a good score. Scores are hard to

:37:33.:37:37.

come by on high bar. David Bishop for New Zealand. Sean Ohara to

:37:38.:37:42.

follow him. A really good lift of the chest on

:37:43.:38:03.

that Tkachev. All these release and catches are done close to the bar or

:38:04.:38:09.

with lots of height and flight. If you have lots of height and flight,

:38:10.:38:11.

you get more marks. Good position! What a landing!

:38:12.:38:38.

Certainly one of the best landings we have seen on high bar. I think

:38:39.:38:45.

even he is surprised as well. It does bear repeating that New

:38:46.:38:50.

Zealanders have really thumped their style, their signature onto this

:38:51.:38:56.

competition. They have made such strides, not only in difficulty, you

:38:57.:39:00.

can see a lot of call work is done, a lot of basic skills have been

:39:01.:39:04.

hammered and they really know where they are. This is really good to

:39:05.:39:07.

see, good for the Commonwealth. Frank Baines preparing for high bar.

:39:08.:39:26.

We will see him again in the parallel bars final. I think he

:39:27.:39:32.

clipped his feet on the floor. This is a crucial routine for Daniel

:39:33.:39:38.

Keatings. He is currently in silver medal position. There was a mark

:39:39.:39:44.

between him and Nile Wilson in bronze but Nile Wilson has 0.7 on

:39:45.:39:49.

him on high bar. So just .3 to play with him. -- here.

:39:50.:40:05.

Very positive in the under somersault elements.

:40:06.:40:18.

A little bit of hesitation here from Dan Keatings.

:40:19.:40:50.

There were some errors there. It did not go to plan but he reassessed and

:40:51.:40:57.

he got what he could out of it. Will it be enough? We will have to wait

:40:58.:41:01.

until the end of high bar to find out. It was a good, good stylish

:41:02.:41:07.

performance. He covered his tracks well. He certainly major of this

:41:08.:41:15.

dismount, where he did not in the team qualification. He made sure he

:41:16.:41:36.

met the floor properly. If they give him all the difficulty, he will not

:41:37.:41:38.

suffer too badly. The second group on high bar from

:41:39.:41:50.

Australia. This is a nerve wracking peaceful

:41:51.:42:05.

spectator and gymnast alike. He was a little bit late on the

:42:06.:42:30.

pirouette. You can see the coach anxiously hovering underneath.

:42:31.:42:43.

A big pace forward. Quite a short routine. He just packed everything

:42:44.:42:51.

in as quickly as he could. He is having a few problems with his left

:42:52.:42:58.

hand. He has probably got a rip on his wrist. He will enjoy the carpet

:42:59.:43:06.

burns on floor to come. Daniel Keatings has got a very big parallel

:43:07.:43:13.

bar score. He has scored 16. That is his strong peas. That was his big

:43:14.:43:19.

card to play. Still a respectable score. If Nile Wilson is to go ahead

:43:20.:43:23.

of Keatings and give himself every chance on high bar, this is a

:43:24.:43:29.

much-needed parallel bar routine. He is just 18 years old.

:43:30.:43:40.

Very clean to somersault from handstand to upper arms. He had an

:43:41.:43:50.

identical start Keatings. I have to say, it is better at this stage.

:43:51.:43:54.

There is the healy out. double pike back. I will not sit on

:43:55.:44:32.

the fence, he should get a higher score than Daniel Keatings for that

:44:33.:44:38.

routine. The routine, the execution was great. But whether the

:44:39.:44:43.

difficulty was quite as high, we will have to wait and see. Sam

:44:44.:44:54.

Oldham is watching on. Uncanny to produce this majority when a few

:44:55.:45:02.

weeks ago he was a junior. The scores are very hard to come by. I

:45:03.:45:11.

had the opportunity to watch Nile train and I watched him prepare for

:45:12.:45:15.

the Junior Europeans, he works like that in the gym all the time. A

:45:16.:45:22.

first look at floor in this rotation.

:45:23.:45:37.

Clean landings so far. It is short of the straight line in that

:45:38.:45:47.

handstand. Very good, smooth. All these tumbles have got

:45:48.:46:12.

difficulty value. They pack it in. If they can work quickly, they can

:46:13.:46:15.

put more difficulty in. around. So many of these gymnasts

:46:16.:46:35.

performing fees. -- please. No doubt about the level of the competition,

:46:36.:46:48.

very high indeed. 13.5. Aditya Rana. What has he done? 15.433. It was a

:46:49.:47:03.

superb form and is from Nile Wilson, -- superb performance. Well

:47:04.:47:09.

deserved. Much higher than anyone scored in qualification. The top

:47:10.:47:17.

score in qualification was 14.9 so that is some score from Nile Wilson.

:47:18.:47:24.

Max Whitlock in front. Daniel Keatings in second. Daniel Purvis

:47:25.:47:30.

has dropped a bit. Clinton Purnell has dropped to seventh and he will

:47:31.:47:34.

want to go up the rankings with a high bars. -- the high bars. It is a

:47:35.:47:44.

given Max Whitlock is well ahead but the battle is silver and bronze. 4.4

:47:45.:47:50.

in it which is very close, knowing Nile Wilson beat Daniel Keatings in

:47:51.:47:56.

qualification. We knew it would be close, but not

:47:57.:48:05.

this close. This is Nile Wilson's routine. The pressure, yet again.

:48:06.:48:11.

Knowing that this is his chance to claw back and give himself a chance

:48:12.:48:18.

on the high bar. It shows you how well he knows his routine. Scott was

:48:19.:48:22.

speaking to him and he will you saying, you know what you have done

:48:23.:48:28.

in the gym, do the same and forget you are in this major pressurised

:48:29.:48:32.

environment. He is such a classy gymnast to watch. Every skill. The

:48:33.:48:38.

legs locked together. The toes pointed, the arms straight and there

:48:39.:48:43.

is no wobble, he holds a handstand position. He is the junior European

:48:44.:48:49.

champion on high bar. And he will come out of the blocks giving it

:48:50.:48:53.

everything. He well, he has nothing to lose, it is his first year in the

:48:54.:48:58.

senior competition. He is definitely going to come away with a medal,

:48:59.:49:00.

that is a given. How must Daniel Keatings be feeling

:49:01.:49:09.

knowing he let the pressure get to him again? His routine was not too

:49:10.:49:14.

bad, there were some errors. In his eyes, it could be better. You could

:49:15.:49:20.

see his face, he was not happy, he had not given enough to have that

:49:21.:49:27.

advantage. How will the order affect him here? Daniel Keatings is going

:49:28.:49:30.

ahead of Nile Wilson which could come into play. It would be better

:49:31.:49:35.

for Daniel Keatings to be first. Max Whitlock will finish the

:49:36.:49:45.

competition of and deservedly so. And how do you think he will go? He

:49:46.:49:51.

has got nothing to lose again. He has gone out there and I do not

:49:52.:49:58.

expect it to be different with the high bar. He will have his routine

:49:59.:50:01.

and they will not bother changing it to make it easier for him to win a

:50:02.:50:07.

title. These other gymnasts warming got behind us. -- these are the

:50:08.:50:12.

gymnasts. Mail Wilson just focusing on the high bar. -- Nile Wilson.

:50:13.:50:21.

Just throw at, do a couple of twists! -- throw him. Our youngest

:50:22.:50:30.

member in the making. Look at how relaxed years. He is getting a feel

:50:31.:50:37.

for the bars. Even stylish in warm up. Yes, there is nothing to deduct.

:50:38.:50:43.

He has the difficulty and execution on his side. The first gymnast is

:50:44.:50:51.

ready to go on the floor. Panagiotis Aristotelous, from Cyprus. One of

:50:52.:50:54.

the older gymnasts in the competition. We were talking how

:50:55.:51:00.

wonderful it was to see Naoya Tsukahara on the world stage, at

:51:01.:51:05.

this lad equally as old, at 27. -- but this lad. Over to commentary for

:51:06.:51:12.

the last piece of apparatus for this meant's team final. All to play for

:51:13.:51:17.

on this high bar. -- men's. A very popular series of moves.

:51:18.:51:24.

Front somersault. The 1.5 backwards into the front, with half. A

:51:25.:51:33.

compulsory element that the gymnasts have to do. An Arabian half turn.

:51:34.:51:50.

build difficulty. A full twist in front, an immediate dive roll. --

:51:51.:51:53.

twisting. A good double twist. That was not a

:51:54.:52:06.

hugely difficult routine and he looked a bit unhappy throughout.

:52:07.:52:13.

Complaining about his hand slipping. We saw him not terribly happy on

:52:14.:52:24.

high bar as well. Clinton Purnell from Wales has had a storming

:52:25.:52:28.

competition. He was in seventh on the last rotation and he will be

:52:29.:52:33.

looking to get every point the camp on Frank Raines, in sixth. Naoya

:52:34.:52:42.

Tsukahara six. For now, it is all about this.

:52:43.:52:46.

Good on the full turn. A good start. 1.5 turns. Nice and leisurely. Into

:52:47.:53:08.

the inverted swing. This can catch people out. A little bit late,

:53:09.:53:19.

without a turn. He is of with a full twist double straight. And that was

:53:20.:53:25.

a very secure competition from Clinton Purnell, he will be

:53:26.:53:30.

absolutely delighted. His second Commonwealth Games and he made the

:53:31.:53:35.

most of it. You cannot ask for anything more than six pieces

:53:36.:53:39.

without a major error. And in this company, to be coming in around

:53:40.:53:44.

seventh is not bad at all. The head is fixed between the arms.

:53:45.:54:16.

He releases for the double straight. High above the bar. The legs are

:54:17.:54:24.

locked together. He sees the floor. He springs the arms out to steady

:54:25.:54:26.

the body. Delighted with his all-round

:54:27.:54:39.

competition. Panagiotis Aristotelous. A score of 12.7.

:54:40.:54:56.

Gabriel Gannon now, from Singapore. -- Gabriel Gan. I think we will see

:54:57.:55:02.

some twisting here, Chris. I do not know. The first tumble. Beautiful,

:55:03.:55:09.

classy, there is obviously some problem. That was better. If front

:55:10.:55:16.

somersault with 1.5 twists. -- a front.

:55:17.:55:27.

A little bit of double circle work. He looks much happier in support.

:55:28.:55:44.

Good wide and handstand. Held for the required time. -- white

:55:45.:55:49.

handstand. Are we are going to see something

:55:50.:56:06.

more exciting to finish with? Yes, double twist to finish with. I think

:56:07.:56:12.

he is maybe nursing an ankle problem because if you think about the

:56:13.:56:16.

dismounts, he certainly has played safe. He said earlier that he is

:56:17.:56:25.

ready to add a difficulty to his repertoire if he is not going to

:56:26.:56:31.

will. -- to add difficulty to his repertoire if he is not going well.

:56:32.:56:36.

That is not too shabby for Clinton Purnell. That is a good score. Very

:56:37.:56:48.

respectable. Luke Wadsworth, his last piece of apparatus. Such a test

:56:49.:56:58.

of strength and some -- and stamina. A little bit of hesitation. The

:56:59.:57:12.

swinging element from it. Half turn. Very carefully placing his hands. A

:57:13.:57:19.

little bit late. But this is very difficult.

:57:20.:57:29.

Very well done indeed! So he has had a consistent competition as well,

:57:30.:57:42.

Luke Wadsworth. He lands the sixth piece as he would have hoped, you

:57:43.:57:47.

dream about a dismount like that at the end of a round. The consistency

:57:48.:57:57.

has been capped Ching. -- catching. 10.933. He is consistent. Sorry, I

:57:58.:58:08.

gave the high bar score. That felt like quite a high score. Rakesh

:58:09.:58:15.

Patra now, on floor. The power house. Completely different style.

:58:16.:58:21.

The double Iranian, half turn into a double front. Nothing leisurely

:58:22.:58:27.

about this gymnast. -- double Arabian. Half turn.

:58:28.:58:36.

I am not sure that was held quite long enough.

:58:37.:58:44.

A double twist. He just loses his head a bit on his twisting which

:58:45.:59:05.

means he ends up hiking down. He meets the floor and he rolls

:59:06.:59:11.

forwards. Not the best shape in the handstand. We getting now? -- what

:59:12.:59:22.

are we getting now? He goes for it but he lost himself. He lost where

:59:23.:59:29.

he was and a hands down at the finish. Talking about the power, he

:59:30.:59:35.

lost -- you started the last tumble three quarters of the way up. -- you

:59:36.:59:39.

started. A poor construction of exercise. Luke Wadsworth, for the

:59:40.:59:51.

high bar. The next gymnast as Naoya Tsukahara. -- the next gymnast is.

:59:52.:59:58.

He is the current all-round Australian champion. Residency in

:59:59.:00:12.

Australia since 2013. An interesting classic addition to the Australian

:00:13.:00:21.

team. Classic, indeed. You can expect to see on this apparatus, the

:00:22.:00:24.

Japanese are really good on the high bar. A full turn. He has rescued it.

:00:25.:00:43.

So much time in the turn. And on the one and a half. Great to watch. A

:00:44.:00:47.

bit flat. But a nice kick out. A full twist. They do have a special

:00:48.:01:06.

style. The Japanese have an aura about them. The three-time Olympian

:01:07.:01:14.

finishes as he has done many an all-round competition with style.

:01:15.:01:26.

but the sort of gritty performer has gone now. Nearly every piece that

:01:27.:01:35.

has been the odd error as well. He just tucked the leg up on the long

:01:36.:01:39.

swing when he did not have enough swing. That, I guess, is the

:01:40.:01:50.

difference from when you are at your absolute peak, a veteran of three

:01:51.:01:51.

Olympics. That final twist proved too tricky

:01:52.:02:25.

for Rakesh Patra. Ashish Kumar finishes his six piece of apparatus

:02:26.:02:26.

on floor. What a shame. He was just too

:02:27.:02:38.

controlled. He is just not quite round, gave the

:02:39.:03:02.

judges opportunity to deduct. That is a nice controlled handstand

:03:03.:03:03.

though. As he met the floor, his legs were

:03:04.:03:16.

extending. Good style, legs beautifully

:03:17.:03:30.

together. A bull twist to finished, very

:03:31.:03:53.

clean. -- a pull twist to finish. -- triple twist.

:03:54.:04:17.

The raw for Daniel Purvis from Scotland, rounds off his all-around

:04:18.:04:26.

competition on high bar. It will be impressive. Yes, he will not be

:04:27.:04:32.

faint-hearted, he will go for it. Late on the want with five twist but

:04:33.:05:00.

he is absolutely determined here to go out with a flourish. -- 1.5

:05:01.:05:16.

twist. Quite technique. A double double, nice landing, well done, Dan

:05:17.:05:24.

Purvis. He lands with absolute respect from the crowd here at the

:05:25.:05:28.

Hydro but he will not threaten for a medal. He was two marks going down

:05:29.:05:35.

-- two marks down going into this apparatus. Scotland's hopes lie with

:05:36.:05:45.

that man, Daniel Keatings now. He has been a bit in and out through

:05:46.:05:50.

these championships, Dan Purvis, which is not what we have come to

:05:51.:05:55.

respect. He has been Mr reliable over the last few years for the

:05:56.:05:59.

British team. He has had little mistakes everywhere. The law was

:06:00.:06:04.

great, that was one of his best pieces. -- floor was great. Ashish

:06:05.:06:13.

Kumar with his best score yet. Mikhail Koudinov, the last gymnast

:06:14.:06:46.

to go on pommel horse. We saw him with the air on high bar but I'm

:06:47.:06:50.

sure he has got all his preparations in order for this piece. He starts

:06:51.:06:57.

with a very nice handstand. A little bit of hesitation as he came down

:06:58.:07:01.

but this is lovely work. He split his legs but recovered for

:07:02.:07:21.

the dismount. The story of many other gymnast on the pommel horse. A

:07:22.:07:28.

good display of gymnastics from the New Zealanders. Indeed, they have

:07:29.:07:40.

impressed, good strides forward. Dan Purvis contemplates what could have

:07:41.:07:41.

been. That is not the best all-around

:07:42.:07:57.

score he has had. He is in the 90 plus club. This lad is also in a

:07:58.:08:04.

high bar final. He has some moves on this bit of kit.

:08:05.:08:16.

Very clean, very high, lovely technique.

:08:17.:08:45.

A little deep touch with the knees. I don't think he touched. A fine

:08:46.:09:17.

display of technique and difficulty from Frank Baines. It is really the

:09:18.:09:20.

connection where he is lacking a bit, Chris. I think it is

:09:21.:09:27.

confidence. He did have a nasty injury six months or so ago. When

:09:28.:09:32.

you say nasty, he broke his back. Yes, it affected his confidence plus

:09:33.:09:37.

he has grown a lot when he was injured. He was a junior and he has

:09:38.:09:44.

come into the senior ranks. It has just taken its toll bit. But I think

:09:45.:09:50.

he will come back strongly and give him another year or so, Frank

:09:51.:09:53.

Baines, and I think he will be a force to be reckoned with.

:09:54.:10:07.

Looking for power and style here on floor. He starts off well.

:10:08.:10:35.

The gymnasts try to rebound from one somersault to the next so they do

:10:36.:10:41.

not have to take so many landing deductions. It is also a good way to

:10:42.:10:48.

build your difficulty, two moves together. That was a nice handstand.

:10:49.:11:14.

That was a difficult combination. Worth a lot but not if you put your

:11:15.:11:21.

hand down because that is one full mark off. He waves to the Hydro and

:11:22.:11:28.

that is him done for now. But he will be back tomorrow in the floor

:11:29.:11:34.

final. It is a punishing schedule, this, for the gymnasts.

:11:35.:11:47.

Frank Baines, that is his six piece is done and some valuable lessons

:11:48.:11:54.

learned, no doubt, in front of this huge crowd as Daniel Keatings is

:11:55.:11:59.

introduced. Now, you will have to produce some magic here, my man.

:12:00.:12:02.

This for a silver medal. Keatings is going very well. If ever

:12:03.:12:45.

he needed to produce work like this, it is right now. Here is the

:12:46.:12:57.

dismount, a full twist. Well done, Mr Keatings! It could not have been

:12:58.:13:02.

any better, he has done what he can. He just has to hope we will now see

:13:03.:13:07.

itching in the armour of Nile Wilson. That was absolutely

:13:08.:13:13.

fabulous. The whole crowd willing him on. He did every move to his

:13:14.:13:23.

maximum. Goodness me. A little bit of congratulations passed on from

:13:24.:13:28.

Nile Wilson as he makes his way over to the chalk bin. A lot of people

:13:29.:13:34.

watching might have doubted his consistency, Christine, but he

:13:35.:13:39.

produced it. Look at this. A full stretch, he really gave it

:13:40.:13:43.

everything, didn't he? Interestingly, he has got two

:13:44.:13:49.

different guards on there. Interesting to you, Matt, but it

:13:50.:13:56.

might be his favourite guard. One is with a Velcro wrap and one is with

:13:57.:14:01.

buckles. No, I find that very interesting! You may not, Mitch. You

:14:02.:14:11.

have got to get out more. Yes, he says. He knows he has done

:14:12.:14:13.

everything he can. Nile Wilson will have to wait a

:14:14.:14:41.

moment or two for Sean Ohara, 23 years old.

:14:42.:14:53.

We know he has got power, we have seen it on vault. It is difficult

:14:54.:15:03.

for the gymnasts to stay in the square but he has.

:15:04.:15:18.

He is taking time to think about his tumble.

:15:19.:15:29.

Quite a lot of the gymnasts are choosing not to use the whole of the

:15:30.:15:44.

diagonal, just taking a short run. He had a quick look at the score to

:15:45.:16:06.

make sure he is not under time, and he is not. That is a very nice

:16:07.:16:10.

finish from Sean Ohara. performance on floor. Daniel

:16:11.:16:31.

Keatings is waiting. To see what the judges would think. It is 14.766.

:16:32.:16:50.

88.298. Nile Wilson here with it all to do. He was in bronze medal

:16:51.:17:02.

position. Daniel Keatings has laid down the gauntlet. We may see

:17:03.:17:10.

pressure for the first time from this young man. Emphatic in the

:17:11.:17:21.

release. Emphatic in the full twist. And confident. No sign of nerves at

:17:22.:17:37.

all. The pirouette is close. Another release which was confident. And

:17:38.:17:40.

another is coming up. A little bit flat but it does not

:17:41.:17:54.

matter, the inverts were nicely done. Watch the shape change. A kick

:17:55.:18:08.

up the front. Mr Wilson, have you done it? He needs something in the

:18:09.:18:16.

region of 15.1 to do it. Daniel Keatings, 14.766. He looks to the

:18:17.:18:22.

sky with hope. Is it still for all runs? Well, whatever, he has had a

:18:23.:18:30.

fantastic, addition. -- is it silver or bronze. What a gymnast. Two, here

:18:31.:18:38.

and to perform in the way he has is not just good news for him but for

:18:39.:18:49.

British gymnastics -- to come here. They bring gymnast through from

:18:50.:18:55.

junior rankings, not many nations can do that. A thumbs up from Sam

:18:56.:19:03.

Oldham who can only applaud. And he was Junior European champion once as

:19:04.:19:11.

well. And these young lads have come through for the last six years from

:19:12.:19:16.

the junior teams. He kept his form on that. His knees locked together.

:19:17.:19:26.

He is a sophisticated technician. I think he is a really natural

:19:27.:19:29.

gymnast, he has that natural feel. That step upwards was the one error

:19:30.:19:37.

we have seen today. -- backwards. I am sure people watching of thinking,

:19:38.:19:41.

how is he doing his moves at such a young gauge? It is quite remarkable.

:19:42.:19:50.

-- age. Hours of training, so much dedication. Will he be rewarded with

:19:51.:19:59.

a silver medal? No, he has not. It says second, but Daniel Keatings is

:20:00.:20:07.

leading. He is happy with a medal. Daniel Keatings will take silver and

:20:08.:20:17.

Nile Wilson bronze. Daniel Keatings just glanced at the scoreboard. The

:20:18.:20:24.

Gold medal will surely go to Max Whitlock? Will he go all out for

:20:25.:20:36.

difficulty? Will he keep this going? Or will he for the first time play

:20:37.:20:41.

safe? Max Whitlock with a chance of old in the men's all-round at the

:20:42.:20:45.

Commonwealth Games. The advice would be, do what you have trained. Do not

:20:46.:20:51.

try to cut down or to step up, do what you have trained.

:20:52.:21:03.

A bit wide. A full turn. Lovely. He is not compromising.

:21:04.:21:21.

Nicely locked out from the shoulders. A leisurely turn. A full

:21:22.:21:31.

turn. He changes shape. The next swing. And the landing! He has

:21:32.:21:41.

absolutely nailed all six pieces of apparatus. Max Whitlock has just

:21:42.:21:49.

landed on a Gold medal! What a star! They have all been great. Sparkling.

:21:50.:22:00.

Absolutely brilliant performance from 65 map pro and he did not hold

:22:01.:22:07.

back. -- from Max Whitlock. You have to say in that situation, do what

:22:08.:22:11.

you have trained. That is not his style. There was never going to be

:22:12.:22:17.

any holding back. If he was going to hold back, it would have been on the

:22:18.:22:22.

vault. Wrist yen and Louis Smith delighted. -- Christian. It was

:22:23.:22:28.

stratospheric. He kept his head, there was a lot of ritual between

:22:29.:22:32.

the apparatus to keep his focus and it paid off! The current British

:22:33.:22:41.

champion has not defended his title this year. It is always tougher to

:22:42.:22:47.

defend than to win in the first place. -- has defended.

:22:48.:22:54.

A good swing. Not so much one of his signature pieces, the high bar, but

:22:55.:23:07.

very efficient. And this, for what we have come to know him so well

:23:08.:23:14.

for, his multiple twists. A double twist at the end of that double

:23:15.:23:20.

straight. Now he can smile. That is lovely. Team-mates. Most of the

:23:21.:23:29.

time. Rivals today. You would never believe it from that shot. Fantastic

:23:30.:23:33.

camera Roger Eve. And absolute respect for one another. --

:23:34.:23:44.

fantastic camaraderie. Confirmation, he finishes with a bang. 15.1. A

:23:45.:23:59.

world-class score. He is in the Super League. He really is. He has

:24:00.:24:05.

got his eye on making inroads in the World Championships. I am thrilled

:24:06.:24:13.

for Daniel Keatings. What a cracker of a competition.

:24:14.:24:23.

Look at that total. 90.6. Two days in a row he hit the 90 barrier. It

:24:24.:24:35.

is incredible, Daniel Keatings is two marks behind but Max stole the

:24:36.:24:42.

show. I thought, is he going to play safe? Why risk it? I knew he would

:24:43.:24:48.

not play it safe, he knows what he is going to do. And you do not want

:24:49.:24:53.

to mess with a gymnast's mind too much. Why starts taking stuff out to

:24:54.:25:00.

mess with it? Let's treat ourselves to it one more time. He came into

:25:01.:25:06.

this with an element of a relaxed feel but he wanted to nail that 90.

:25:07.:25:12.

He did, and that is the big thing, going into the World Championships.

:25:13.:25:16.

Everything was done to the maximum, it was not played safe. A bit

:25:17.:25:22.

scrappy on that at that was the only wild things throughout the routine.

:25:23.:25:24.

-- at. The wild things throughout the routine.

:25:25.:25:27.

-- at. handstand, near enough perfect. Height on the releasing

:25:28.:25:36.

catch, and the legs locked together, straight arms. He has great flair

:25:37.:25:41.

and style throughout the routine. When the order is put together on

:25:42.:25:46.

this final, the highest qualifier normally wraps up the competition

:25:47.:25:51.

and they go last. So all eyes on him and he knew that when he launched

:25:52.:25:56.

with this this month. Goodness me! You want to nail this routine. I was

:25:57.:26:05.

watching his coach. As soon as he landed and nailed it, Scott was

:26:06.:26:10.

jumping up and down. You have done that so many times, what does it

:26:11.:26:13.

feel like when you see your feet are perfectly positioned and you have

:26:14.:26:15.

nailed it? It is relief that the hard work and

:26:16.:26:24.

tears to get to that point has finally paid off. I spoke to him in

:26:25.:26:30.

2011 at the World Championships, he was named as reserve and he was so

:26:31.:26:35.

disappointed. I said, your time will come, do not panic, and he has

:26:36.:26:40.

proved it. As the boot -- has he peaked too early for the World

:26:41.:26:44.

Championships? I do not think so, he has great support, they will have a

:26:45.:26:50.

bit of downtime after this game is and they will go back in preparation

:26:51.:26:54.

for the World Championships. Which is not far away. It is the beginning

:26:55.:27:00.

of October so they will have a bit of downtime but he will keep his

:27:01.:27:04.

stamina and his fitness going. And will he stick with the same

:27:05.:27:10.

routines? Yes, that was the purpose of this competition. The reason he

:27:11.:27:14.

put out the triple twist on the vault and the difficulty on

:27:15.:27:18.

pommelhorse is to prepare for the World Championships. This was his

:27:19.:27:22.

chance to try let and if it did not work, they could go back to the

:27:23.:27:26.

drawing board. The world is watching, what will everybody be

:27:27.:27:32.

making of a young Nile Wilson? They will be worried. Do they know that

:27:33.:27:38.

we have got more coming through the ranks? We have, and there are more

:27:39.:27:46.

after Nile Wilson. We cannot at some of his performance. We keep saying

:27:47.:27:50.

this, we talk about the composure but he knew what was at stake.

:27:51.:27:56.

You can see the relief on his face at the end of the routine. There is

:27:57.:28:05.

not even a lake separation in it. Does he even impressed you? -- leg.

:28:06.:28:12.

He does, and the somebody to keep an eye on. British gymnastics will be

:28:13.:28:17.

looking after him and his coach will have a plan of action leading up to

:28:18.:28:26.

2016. For the men, it is usually a bit later in their career that they

:28:27.:28:32.

produce. Max Whitlock is only 21. He did the same four years ago in

:28:33.:28:36.

Delhi, he shot onto the scene. Now it is the turn of 66 map row and

:28:37.:28:40.

hopefully he will win the Commonwealth title -- Nile Wilson.

:28:41.:28:48.

What will this mean to Daniel Keatings? Everything to him. He

:28:49.:28:52.

missed out on London 2012, this is the home Games for him. As soon as

:28:53.:28:59.

he landed that dismount, he had that elation on his face. He is such a

:29:00.:29:05.

stylish gymnast. The top three, it is down to position. He did not do

:29:06.:29:10.

himself favours and parallel bars. He did it the hardware it by having

:29:11.:29:15.

a couple of wobbles. That is where experienced shows through. --

:29:16.:29:21.

experience. He can pick himself back up and he has one piece of apparatus

:29:22.:29:26.

to prove himself on and as soon as he lands his dismount, it you see

:29:27.:29:33.

the reaction. -- you see. He has been one of the real stars of

:29:34.:29:37.

British gymnastics. And you know the way you always need somebody to

:29:38.:29:45.

chase? That person you are working towards is so important and crucial,

:29:46.:29:50.

and Daniel, in my eyes, has been that person. He has had an

:29:51.:29:56.

incredible career. Medal after medal. But not in the past couple of

:29:57.:30:03.

years. It was 2009, 2011. He had the disappointment of not going to

:30:04.:30:06.

London and he took it hard but he knew he had this to focus on. It was

:30:07.:30:12.

his home Games. I am so pleased for him, his mum and dad will be in the

:30:13.:30:17.

audience and they have supported him so much. What will this competition

:30:18.:30:23.

do for his chances for the British team selectors? Eddie will be in the

:30:24.:30:26.

audience and he will have been looking at that group. He will be

:30:27.:30:32.

thinking he is quitting for the World Championship. And Frank

:30:33.:30:40.

Baines, as much as anybody here, he has learnt the most. Because

:30:41.:30:44.

sometimes, you need to come out on a stage like this and if it does not

:30:45.:30:48.

go your way, you learn more. He is still so young and he had a major

:30:49.:30:53.

injury last year so he has had to come back for it. He has not

:30:54.:30:57.

necessarily had the same preparation time as the others. The woman a lot

:30:58.:31:02.

from this and he is one to look out for in the future. We are waiting

:31:03.:31:07.

for the gymnast to come out for the medal ceremony. We have two England

:31:08.:31:14.

gymnast and a Scot. They might be looking for a second England flag.

:31:15.:31:16.

These are the results. score is astonishing. Daniel

:31:17.:31:34.

Keatings has a well-deserved silver medal and Nile Wilson with the first

:31:35.:31:38.

of what I'm sure will be many medals.

:31:39.:31:48.

Every gymnast does not always have their moment and unfortunately Dan

:31:49.:31:55.

Purvis had a couple which put him out of the medals. That can be our

:31:56.:32:00.

sport and it can be hard at times. He has been there, he has had the

:32:01.:32:06.

highs and lows. They will all be back in preparation together ready

:32:07.:32:10.

for the World Championships. We have to look ahead to the winning's

:32:11.:32:13.

competition tonight. It is a bit strange really because it is split

:32:14.:32:19.

into two. You have the top 24 and the first 12 will be going second.

:32:20.:32:27.

From an England perspective, Scotland, Wales, one of Christine's

:32:28.:32:33.

gymnasts is in it as well. Do you think it will be closer than the

:32:34.:32:38.

men? I think there will be fewer people contending for the top

:32:39.:32:45.

medals. They are all really close. It is a case of who can hold their

:32:46.:32:50.

nerve on the night. That is the point. Claudia was saying it did not

:32:51.:32:56.

go to plan. It was her senior debut and I thought, give yourself a

:32:57.:33:02.

break. I think she has come here with quite high expectations of

:33:03.:33:08.

herself. She has. They are already on the third day of competition. It

:33:09.:33:17.

is tough to go up, down, get back to the village, eat and get recovered,

:33:18.:33:24.

we will have to see how all the gymnasts react. Back in your day, as

:33:25.:33:29.

far as the Commonwealth Games were concerned... Back in my day? The

:33:30.:33:36.

Commonwealth Games. It was back in my day! You are going there at as an

:33:37.:33:47.

individual perspective. When you go as a team and then switch your focus

:33:48.:33:52.

and say, it is all about me now. The No everyone gave everything for the

:33:53.:33:56.

Commonwealth title yesterday. It was incredible to watch. Overnight they

:33:57.:34:21.

will have had time to reflect. Max will be going out there tomorrow. It

:34:22.:34:24.

is whether his body will recover mentally to come and be double

:34:25.:34:29.

Commonwealth champion and then have to go back into another day's

:34:30.:34:34.

competition. It will be the fifth day of competition by the time he

:34:35.:34:37.

comes to the parallel bars and high bar final. He has got the support

:34:38.:34:43.

behind him to get him fully recovered. I'm sure a lot of people

:34:44.:34:47.

looking at the overall medal table will be seeing how England are

:34:48.:34:51.

closing in on Australia. And now looking at gymnastics to help them

:34:52.:34:56.

do that. That is something where Team England will be able to pull

:34:57.:35:00.

back from Australia. It is unlikely they will pick many medals up. On

:35:01.:35:06.

the girl's side, I'm sure Team England will pick up more than

:35:07.:35:11.

Australia. It is time to add three medals to the medal table now as the

:35:12.:35:16.

Piper marches into the arena. It looks as if he is about to go and do

:35:17.:35:21.

a floor routine but he goes up the stairs. He is aiming for the circle

:35:22.:35:26.

right in the middle of Glasgow. He is well practised at this. I watched

:35:27.:35:34.

him yesterday. I feel like we are commentating on him, beautiful right

:35:35.:35:38.

turn, aiming for the centre. He will nail this dismount, watch. Perfect.

:35:39.:35:52.

So the stage is set. The sounds of the bagpipes which will pre-empt the

:35:53.:36:05.

entry of the notorious gladiators. Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome

:36:06.:36:37.

the medal ceremony for the gymnasts from the all-around final. Three

:36:38.:36:44.

superb all-round performances. Lots of drama throughout the competition.

:36:45.:36:51.

The use of Nile Wilson, the comeback of Daniel Keatings and the supremacy

:36:52.:37:07.

of Max Whitlock. It is quite an interesting trio. We saw Max

:37:08.:37:14.

Whitlock go to Beijing. He was the new kids like Nile Wilson is now --

:37:15.:37:21.

we saw Daniel Keatings go to Beijing. The next one to come along

:37:22.:37:26.

now is Max Whitlock. And now the next generation are making their way

:37:27.:37:31.

here. It is really a great comment on British gymnastics, these three

:37:32.:37:37.

gymnasts. Absolutely right, Chris. It is not right to call it a

:37:38.:37:41.

production line but that is what it is, it is a stream of talent and it

:37:42.:37:49.

just keeps on emerging. He was focused all the way through that now

:37:50.:37:50.

he is relaxed. We had a world-class score at the

:37:51.:38:09.

end of the competition and a good tussle behind that for silver and

:38:10.:38:15.

bronze. It just had everything. It really did. A young man with a

:38:16.:38:25.

fabulous guaranteed future, Nile Wilson, just weeks ago, a junior

:38:26.:38:37.

medallist. At this global competition, the Commonwealth Games,

:38:38.:38:41.

he takes a bronze medal. What a future he has. Nile is from Leeds

:38:42.:38:57.

Gymnastics Club. Nile Wilson takes the bronze.

:38:58.:39:07.

There were doubters in the gymnastics fraternity. The doubts

:39:08.:39:25.

were unfounded. He is back emphatically, Daniel Keatings takes

:39:26.:39:29.

a silver medal and so, so well-deserved. Dan Keatings is back

:39:30.:39:33.

on track. Everyone is delighted to see him on

:39:34.:39:58.

the rostrum. So well-deserved, Scotland is proud.

:39:59.:40:18.

You do run out of superlatives but there is one we have not used, this

:40:19.:40:26.

young man is amazing. He just, for six pieces, kept his head. He has

:40:27.:40:35.

made good his weaker apparatus. He kept his focus and he has emerged

:40:36.:40:43.

with a gold medal and a world-class total of over 90. What a

:40:44.:40:54.

Commonwealth champion he is. The whole country is proud of you.

:40:55.:41:00.

An absolutely wonderful performance. Telling the world just how good he

:41:01.:41:07.

is. A solid gold performance, a solid gold reward. Ladies and

:41:08.:41:12.

gentlemen, the National Anthem of England.

:41:13.:41:46.

A great day for the home nations. All medals split between Scotland

:41:47.:42:49.

and England. A brilliant day for gymnastics and for the other

:42:50.:42:54.

nations. Such a rousing anthem, Jerusalem. That felt incredibly

:42:55.:43:02.

emotional. What a picture that is. What a picture. And do you know

:43:03.:43:06.

what, looking at Nile Wilson there, you can just sense that he knows

:43:07.:43:11.

more is to come. You could see the elation he had when he took that

:43:12.:43:20.

bronze. It is Max's turn to take the title and Daniel Keatings filling in

:43:21.:43:24.

with the silver but I am so pleased for all three of them. They have all

:43:25.:43:31.

been working so hard together. When you know what has gone into it and

:43:32.:43:35.

you know how much sacrifice, and you are watching, it is a remarkable

:43:36.:43:41.

feeling. It is all smiles and happiness. You know what these lads

:43:42.:43:47.

have been through. You could see each one of them as they were stood

:43:48.:43:52.

waiting for their name, they were watching with emotion. Max

:43:53.:43:59.

especially has had to keep his head down and he was just staring into

:44:00.:44:04.

that flag thinking, all that hard work and the tears and sweat, the

:44:05.:44:08.

down days and the good days have all been worth it. I think it is fair to

:44:09.:44:16.

say it has turned out how the lads would have hoped. Keatings would not

:44:17.:44:20.

have been going into this thinking, I could get gold. Not at all.

:44:21.:44:26.

Everyone thought it would be Max or Sam. And fortunately, we did lose

:44:27.:44:31.

Sam. But they have got so much support behind them with their

:44:32.:44:36.

families. All three have got such supportive parents. British

:44:37.:44:40.

gymnastics, the medical support, the psychological support, everything

:44:41.:44:42.

which has helped them get here today. Weighed you think, Beth, that

:44:43.:44:51.

British gymnastics can go? As far as the Commonwealth is concerned,

:44:52.:44:54.

absolute domination. Ten years ago we were not rated in the

:44:55.:44:58.

Commonwealth but now we are dominating underworld medal. -- now

:44:59.:45:05.

we are dominating on a world level. We are looking for not just one

:45:06.:45:11.

final but six, seven, eight finals. And then I do not know how many

:45:12.:45:16.

medals. There are so many members on that team who are capable of medals.

:45:17.:45:22.

It is not just one member. When you are training in a gym which has

:45:23.:45:26.

medallist in it and even world finalists in there, there is a

:45:27.:45:31.

different vibe going on. It just raises the bar. They are currently

:45:32.:45:37.

pushing each other. If someone see someone doing a new element they

:45:38.:45:42.

think, how is he doing it, I need to move up again. When you look at Nile

:45:43.:45:47.

and how much he is enjoying this experience, it is not intense for

:45:48.:45:51.

him. That is a joy to see that he is coping with it. Actually, he is

:45:52.:45:59.

relishing it. Look at this! Daniel is so proud and has always been

:46:00.:46:02.

proud to represent Scotland. He has done it from a young age,

:46:03.:46:08.

Commonwealth junior level and European junior level. He is always

:46:09.:46:12.

the first to acknowledge that Scottish link. Stay there longer,

:46:13.:46:17.

that is your time! They will each get their photo taken. The English

:46:18.:46:25.

do not want to feel left out. There are their flags. Very shortly, we

:46:26.:46:36.

will hear from the gymnasts. After they have felt a love! For the

:46:37.:46:42.

spectators who want to see a sports, and watch and be amazed... -- a

:46:43.:46:49.

sport. The amount of messages, this is people's first time at a given

:46:50.:46:55.

Astec event, and they had been such a supportive crowd -- gymnastics

:46:56.:47:01.

event. They knew how much hard work it took to get here so they were

:47:02.:47:06.

appreciative of every performance. And the risk. At the risk of

:47:07.:47:11.

sounding derogatory, it is almost circus like at times. It is, you

:47:12.:47:19.

have to take the risk, do you go for difficulty or go safer and for clean

:47:20.:47:26.

execution? Some old went for the risk yesterday and it did not quite

:47:27.:47:32.

pay off. Max went for the risk with some difficulty and it did pay off.

:47:33.:47:38.

I have never seen a bigger smile and Daniel Keating is face. -- and

:47:39.:47:46.

Daniel Keatings's face. He knew it was his chance to save to selectors,

:47:47.:47:59.

I am still very happy here. We will hear from them shortly but they are

:48:00.:48:04.

enjoying that moment. We will bring you therein to view later. What an

:48:05.:48:07.

all-round competition this afternoon. -- that interview. It has

:48:08.:48:14.

been fantastic and they are milking it, and they showed. They have

:48:15.:48:20.

worked so hard that they deserve to take pictures and let everyone see

:48:21.:48:24.

how pleased they are. And there is so much modern mystics to come from

:48:25.:48:29.

here at the Hydro. For now, we will hand back to you, Hazel. -- so much

:48:30.:48:34.

more gymnastics. It was breathtaking, I enjoyed every

:48:35.:48:39.

second and I will enjoy tonight because the women's all-round will

:48:40.:48:43.

be taking place. Claudia Fragapane, 16, from England, is leading the

:48:44.:48:50.

standings. You could say she is favourite and she will top the

:48:51.:48:56.

order. You can see that later from nine o'clock on BBC One. And if this

:48:57.:49:06.

is inspiring to you, why not? Why not go to the BBC website? So much

:49:07.:49:10.

information is available. Local clubs in your area. Claudia

:49:11.:49:17.

Fragapane is only 16. If you are six and over, it could be you.

:49:18.:49:21.

Yesterday was the end of the shooting event at Carnoustie. I have

:49:22.:49:27.

a quartet of English Gold medal winners this afternoon. Steve Scott.

:49:28.:49:36.

And others. Welcome to Glasgow. You have been at Carnoustie, what do you

:49:37.:49:42.

make of the host city, Charlotte? It is amazing, we have been stuck out

:49:43.:49:46.

in Dundee which has been lovely but it is lovely to get involved with

:49:47.:49:50.

the rest of the team. It is different because in a satellite

:49:51.:49:55.

venue, how was Carnoustie and the Barry but arrange? Some people call

:49:56.:50:02.

buttons! -- Barry Orden range. It was fantastic. The tricky conditions

:50:03.:50:07.

that we had, that delayed some of the competition. We got rained on

:50:08.:50:11.

ones but that was not too bad because we expected more rain --

:50:12.:50:18.

once. I had water proofs but I did not have to win them. Five Gold

:50:19.:50:22.

medals for England, 20 in total for the home nations. Steve, you got was

:50:23.:50:30.

underway on Saturday in the double trap. Absolute perfection. -- you

:50:31.:50:36.

got us. 30 out of 30. Correct, I was pleased with that. I shot 30 out of

:50:37.:50:41.

30 in a qualifying round and I repeated that looked performance in

:50:42.:50:47.

the final. Matthew French shot extremely well as well for 29. A

:50:48.:50:54.

great day. And that is the skill, to produce it on the way -- on the day.

:50:55.:50:59.

Charlotte, and remember you as a 15-year-old in 2002 -- I remember.

:51:00.:51:06.

This is your fourth Gold medal, how do you keep producing these

:51:07.:51:07.

performances? do you keep producing these

:51:08.:51:11.

Commonwealth Games and it just seems to happen. I love competing at the

:51:12.:51:15.

Commonwealth Games, these are my third Games. My first Games were at

:51:16.:51:22.

15. It is great. You were born to do it, your parents have been involved

:51:23.:51:27.

in the sport for a long time and they own a shooting range. They have

:51:28.:51:33.

a range in Sussex and that is why I got into it. It was just a nice

:51:34.:51:36.

sport that the family could do together. You and Steve used

:51:37.:51:41.

shotguns, it you are hitting moving targets. But for the other two, it

:51:42.:51:51.

is about keeping still. You want together in the cause -- in the

:51:52.:51:57.

Queen's prize. How does the team together work? I shoot first and

:51:58.:52:09.

David coaches me. He leads me. I've via the trigger and he tells me when

:52:10.:52:14.

to do it. Wind conditions. -- I fire. He makes the decisions and

:52:15.:52:21.

after I have finished, David has a go and I coach him through it. You

:52:22.:52:28.

need to shoot well also. So you really are a team. You are shooting

:52:29.:52:33.

up to 1,000 yards, so from here to the Hydro, how far is that? About

:52:34.:52:41.

halfway, so it is twice that far. And how much can the shots move in

:52:42.:52:46.

that distance? What sort of range of movement would you have to

:52:47.:52:51.

accommodate? Yesterday was particular difficult. The wind was

:52:52.:52:57.

changing, shifting it from about five foot drift one-way to three

:52:58.:53:03.

foot drift the other way. Extraordinary. And you are given

:53:04.:53:07.

warm up shots to figure this out. Do you get a natural feel for it after

:53:08.:53:14.

a while? It is a natural feel. It is something you need to spend a lot of

:53:15.:53:19.

time on. There wind flags along the range. -- there are wind flags. And

:53:20.:53:25.

you can see the heat through the telescope. And you are looking at

:53:26.:53:29.

other targets from the other shooters. It is an extraordinary

:53:30.:53:35.

sport, it you need a telescope! Steve, have you tried the other

:53:36.:53:44.

rivals -- rifles, and have you tried a shot and? I have tried a rifle,

:53:45.:53:54.

but our target is still. I shoot rifles for fun and I have been to a

:53:55.:53:59.

couple of clubs. And international training camps. We have a bit of

:54:00.:54:04.

banter between shooters and you have a go. I do it for fun. There is a

:54:05.:54:11.

big difference. But both are just as enjoyable. You just naturally find

:54:12.:54:17.

out what you are best at. One of the most intriguing things was yesterday

:54:18.:54:22.

went David won his second Gold. And you were carried on a chair! To the

:54:23.:54:33.

ceremony. What is this about? It is a judicial and Dick -- it is a

:54:34.:54:40.

tradition dating back 150 years. The winner is carried by his

:54:41.:54:46.

competitors. And you experienced this in Delhi? I did, in Delhi. I am

:54:47.:54:52.

pleased David Tuck the title from me because he is one of my closest

:54:53.:54:59.

friends. When we knew you were coming in, my friends and colleagues

:55:00.:55:04.

were desperate to ask questions and I have some here. Charlotte,

:55:05.:55:11.

actually, this is about the shooting jackets you are using. What function

:55:12.:55:16.

do they perform and why do you use them? They keep you still. The

:55:17.:55:22.

jacket has a sling attached, that clips onto the rifle and it allows

:55:23.:55:27.

you to keep it still for long periods. You have to keep it very

:55:28.:55:35.

still. Half an hour, 40 minutes. The jacket helps to support you. And the

:55:36.:55:40.

blinkers. You sometimes cover one eye. They painted sometimes, what is

:55:41.:55:51.

their function? Dashed a painted. -- when -- they are painted. If you

:55:52.:55:57.

close the other eye, your ability is diminished. You have to keep both

:55:58.:56:01.

eyes open and if you have them both open, depending on the dominant eye,

:56:02.:56:08.

you may or may not have trouble. It is such a fascinating contrast with

:56:09.:56:13.

what you do, Charlotte. It is about quick reactions with things coming

:56:14.:56:17.

from different directions. Completely different, you could not

:56:18.:56:21.

get much different, I could not do what these guys do, I could not sit

:56:22.:56:28.

still but long. Another question, a lot of athletes get up in the

:56:29.:56:32.

morning and they have to get the adrenaline going. Complete opposite

:56:33.:56:38.

of that, it you are trying to keep still, how do you manage that? --

:56:39.:56:45.

you are trying. That is a myth, we form at our best when we have a bit

:56:46.:56:51.

of excitement. -- perform. We knew it was going to be difficult

:56:52.:56:55.

yesterday and we would get excited beforehand. It is getting the

:56:56.:57:01.

balance right. If you get too excited, you will not shoot well. A

:57:02.:57:07.

fascinating subject and it has been fascinating to watch you and you are

:57:08.:57:12.

going home with medals again. Thank you.

:57:13.:57:18.

That was wonderful. What is going to be great tonight is to see the

:57:19.:57:21.

conclusion of the heptathlete at Hampden Park. We saw the conclusion

:57:22.:57:27.

of the decathlon last night. The champions are among the most revered

:57:28.:57:33.

in the Games. You look at Dame Mary Peters of Northern Ireland for

:57:34.:57:36.

example, Daley Thompson. And there was a certain man from Canvey

:57:37.:57:41.

Island, Dean Macey, held together with sticking tape towards the end,

:57:42.:57:45.

but this was his magic moment in Melbourne.

:57:46.:57:50.

When I was younger, maths, English, science, I wanted to be anyone else

:57:51.:57:57.

in the class because I was so slow, lazy most of the time. But in PE,

:57:58.:58:04.

everybody else wanted to be me. I was annoying, I hit 60s in cricket

:58:05.:58:08.

for a laugh and I hit javelins miles because it came naturally. I was an

:58:09.:58:17.

annoying sporty kid. But I wanted to do something more individual. I

:58:18.:58:21.

remember when we played a Cup Final and I laid well and we lost,

:58:22.:58:25.

everybody was in the changing room miserable and I thought, I was $1

:58:26.:58:32.

million! I remember going to athletics competitions and my

:58:33.:58:36.

parents threatening me they would keep me in my bedroom if I did not

:58:37.:58:41.

compete. I would win the javelin, the triple jump, the 100m, and I

:58:42.:58:46.

would think, this is the best. A couple of weeks later, I cannot be

:58:47.:58:51.

bothered. I took it seriously when I won a silver medal in 1996, I was

:58:52.:58:56.

second in the world! To go to sit me thinking I would go one step that

:58:57.:59:01.

was a bit naive. Either 1,500 metres, my coach said that I had to

:59:02.:59:08.

run as much as I could. -- by the 1,500 metres. I ran my sick second

:59:09.:59:14.

personal best. Dean Macey, the clock stops now! My

:59:15.:59:21.

feelings straightaway was, that has to be enough. Does Dean Macey get a

:59:22.:59:28.

medal? He has not got a medal. He has lost it.

:59:29.:59:34.

By those five seconds. To be so close to miss out was

:59:35.:59:38.

heart-wrenching. I have not competed for nearly seven

:59:39.:59:42.

years. I still feel like I have got the magic.

:59:43.:59:45.

The reason my physique has a bit of a minus to it, if you look at it

:59:46.:59:50.

like a plank of wood, short and chunky, you cannot rake it. Long and

:59:51.:59:57.

thin like me, it will snap a lot. And over my career, my body broke

:59:58.:00:03.

quite a bit. I had my elbow rebuilt three times because of Joplin --

:00:04.:00:10.

javelin, I have a plate and screws in my foot, I had a bone removed

:00:11.:00:15.

from my foot, but I did it for the right reason. The Commonwealth Games

:00:16.:00:18.

in Manchester was massive. Three weeks beforehand when I run 400

:00:19.:00:23.

metres to tell my hamstring to the point where there was no coming

:00:24.:00:27.

back, it was the lowest point in my career. I was planning to get

:00:28.:00:30.

married that year, that went out the window. Everything, I could not deal

:00:31.:00:37.

with it. And four years later for the Commonwealth Games in Melbourne,

:00:38.:00:41.

I added an extra couple of months onto my preparation to make sure I

:00:42.:00:43.

was healthy. place, doing all my technical work

:00:44.:00:58.

and here, three strides from the pole vault on my last job before

:00:59.:01:04.

Melbourne, my hamstring went bang. Different event that exactly the

:01:05.:01:09.

same what happened four years before in Manchester. I remember lying

:01:10.:01:13.

unceremoniously, like this, on the bed, with everybody just running

:01:14.:01:17.

around, not knowing what to do. Winning went at the window at this

:01:18.:01:20.

point. Just getting me on the start line was the main thing.

:01:21.:01:26.

COMMENTATOR: How is he feeling? How will the respond? We are cheering

:01:27.:01:30.

for Dean Macey as well. Coming around the last bend, for the first

:01:31.:01:38.

time in my life I had cramp in my biceps running 1500m. At last he has

:01:39.:01:46.

delivered! From there on in it was just fighting back tears. I just

:01:47.:01:52.

thought, you lucky boy. And Dean Macey at last is a champion! He will

:01:53.:02:00.

treasure this moment for a long time to come. He probably won't stop

:02:01.:02:05.

talking for the next 24 hours. There we go. I look like I need a big

:02:06.:02:10.

bunch of flowers in this hand as well. The first thing I thought when

:02:11.:02:15.

they put it brand there was it was a bit cold on the back of my neck. I

:02:16.:02:20.

thought, blimey, that is quality. I stood on that rostrum and I thought

:02:21.:02:23.

about every single person throughout my entire career that have played

:02:24.:02:29.

the smallest part right to the biggest part. It was almost perfect,

:02:30.:02:37.

it really was. I don't think I done bad from a lanky, bald guy from

:02:38.:02:46.

Essex. It's not bad. Not bad at all. In the heptathlon, five of the seven

:02:47.:02:50.

events have been completed. Just the travelling and 800m to go. A

:02:51.:02:56.

Canadian if they run away favourite for gold. It is a fantastic line-up

:02:57.:03:01.

this evening and part. The likes of Greg Rutherford in the long jump

:03:02.:03:05.

final, Ronnie James. Valerie Adams of New Zealand in the shop. And

:03:06.:03:14.

Eilish McColgan in the 3000m steeplechase. Her race is about

:03:15.:03:19.

7:35pm. We are heading over to the SECC now because the boxing events

:03:20.:03:23.

are really getting to the sharp end. Before today, ten of the boxes from

:03:24.:03:28.

the Home Nations were guaranteed medals, three from Scotland and

:03:29.:03:33.

Northern Ireland, two each from Wales and England. More could follow

:03:34.:03:35.

in the quarter finals of the remaining weight divisions today. It

:03:36.:03:39.

is women's flyweight first for us and it is Nicola Adams, the hot

:03:40.:03:44.

favourite to add to the Olympic title she won two years ago. She is

:03:45.:03:49.

facing the Nigerian today. Nicola Adams switches on to the

:03:50.:04:07.

business of the 51 kilos final. There is the opening bell to

:04:08.:04:17.

schedule the first round. Nicola Adams, wearing red, boxing in the

:04:18.:04:22.

orthodox stance. Her opponent, in blue, is the silver of Sri Lanka. 28

:04:23.:04:27.

years old. Three-time runner-up at National

:04:28.:04:46.

Championships, Da Silva. She's certainly giving it a go, taking it

:04:47.:04:50.

to Adams. But just at the moment Adams is that little bit sharper.

:04:51.:04:54.

Catching her bed with a lovely power jab. Skipping left and right, not

:04:55.:05:03.

letting Da Silva settle. -- catching her there with a lovely power jab.

:05:04.:05:11.

Adams is forcing Da Silva back to her own corner and catching her with

:05:12.:05:17.

snaking shots. Adams can smell blood. If she thinks

:05:18.:05:32.

she's caught you, she will go batty. -- she will go at you.

:05:33.:05:46.

Left hook from Da Silva Cop three. -- got through. What a left hand

:05:47.:06:03.

from Nicola Adams! Da Silva sent to the canvas.

:06:04.:06:08.

Just before the bell. There are those piston shot there. He can

:06:09.:06:16.

punch, this girl. My goodness, she is so strong. Just as Da Silva has

:06:17.:06:20.

found herself a little trip to the canvas, and the bell there signs the

:06:21.:06:28.

end of that first round. There was the left hand. It was the final shot

:06:29.:06:34.

of the three punch combination. Final left-hand right on the button.

:06:35.:06:45.

Da Silva losing her balance. She was deposited on the canvas just before

:06:46.:06:48.

the Dell sounded to conclude number one. Two judges their scoring 810-8

:06:49.:06:58.

in favour of judge delivered Nicola Adams, the third judge saying 10-9.

:06:59.:07:13.

We move into the second round. Terrific atmosphere. Nicola Adams

:07:14.:07:22.

took the opening round in decisive fashion, ending it by dropping the

:07:23.:07:24.

Silva from Sri Lanka. -- Da Silva. Such written by Nicola Adams. Still

:07:25.:07:45.

predominantly by one of her first coaches, Belcher, whose main focus

:07:46.:07:52.

is put work, and she has benefited from that throughout her boxing

:07:53.:07:58.

career. She allows Da Silva to this she punishes her on the second phase

:07:59.:08:08.

of her character shop. -- countered shot. De Silva did have her moments

:08:09.:08:23.

of success during the previous exchange. Beautiful rear hand as

:08:24.:08:33.

well. Such strong shots. Left jab is a really jolting weapon from Nicola

:08:34.:08:37.

Adams. Sometimes it is from the beltline, sometimes from the

:08:38.:08:41.

shoulder. So much for writing the most basic of punches and Nicola

:08:42.:08:52.

Adams uses it terrifically well. Lohan is from Nicola. Really

:08:53.:08:56.

relaxing into this. That 1-to their knocking the head back of de Silva.

:08:57.:09:03.

It could hurt tremendously. Corkscrew right and then a left over

:09:04.:09:08.

the top as well. Real quality boxing being exhibited by the reigning

:09:09.:09:16.

Olympic champion. The manner of which she is boxing, you can see why

:09:17.:09:24.

she is number one. So all will become in the red corner because

:09:25.:09:27.

it's been another good display during the course of the second

:09:28.:09:32.

round. There is that corkscrew punch over the top and the big left hook

:09:33.:09:36.

towards the end of round number two. Just snapping back the head of Da

:09:37.:09:41.

Silva, and she comes back with a body shot. That is why Adams is a

:09:42.:09:44.

true limbic champion. -- a true Olympic champion. All

:09:45.:09:53.

three judges in favour of Nicola Adams. No trip to the canvas for de

:09:54.:10:04.

Silva in the second round, but the judges still in favour of Adams.

:10:05.:10:10.

Moving to the second half of this 51 K flyweight quarterfinal. The place

:10:11.:10:15.

on the medal podium is the prize that await the picture.

:10:16.:10:19.

on the medal podium is the prize rounds, Adams is in complete

:10:20.:10:23.

control. She flawed de Silva in Round 1. Now turning southpaw. It

:10:24.:10:28.

was a left -right, although the left hand was a backhand on that

:10:29.:10:32.

occasion, as it was during that final forward the red by the Olympic

:10:33.:10:33.

champion. So versatile, Nicola Adams, she

:10:34.:10:43.

boxes in southpaw and orthodox stance.

:10:44.:10:54.

De Silva cleaned to -- keen to initiate a clinch because that shot

:10:55.:11:06.

not have backwards. Adams has picked up and she's effectively. Nice

:11:07.:11:14.

tactics by de Silva, holding on, seeing if there is anything she

:11:15.:11:19.

could do on the ropes there. Just trying for breathing space from the

:11:20.:11:20.

onslaught from Adams. The referee finally issues a call

:11:21.:11:31.

stop but de Silva holding on. She is perhaps feeling the pace a bit heap

:11:32.:11:35.

into this third round. She is taking a lot of shots.

:11:36.:11:45.

Fair play to de Silva. She is still throwing back. She is still

:11:46.:11:51.

attempting to throw those shots towards Nicola, but she just didn't

:11:52.:11:55.

make it pay that time. Rabbit punch administered from

:11:56.:12:13.

Erandi de Silva, but again a wonderful performance in Round 3

:12:14.:12:18.

from Nicola Adams. She goes back to the red corner to receive

:12:19.:12:27.

instructions. Just misses her there, those shots, Adams. Cann stumbling

:12:28.:12:37.

back. Decisive shots from Adams. -- de Silva stumbling back.

:12:38.:12:46.

Again, two judges scoring at 10-8. Not sure what that Sri Lankan corner

:12:47.:12:58.

can say to turn the tide. Sitting in the red corner is the world number

:12:59.:13:01.

one, the reigning Olympic champion, Nicola Adams. She has found her

:13:02.:13:08.

prison instantly in this, the second part of her Commonwealth Games

:13:09.:13:14.

tournament. Expect de Silva to come out charging hard in this fourth and

:13:15.:13:17.

final round. She has conceded each of the opening three rounds. Adam

:13:18.:13:23.

Strauss have backwards immediately. Punching power can be a great talent

:13:24.:13:28.

to any boxing tent and coming forward. Adams has exhibited

:13:29.:13:31.

accurate, precise, powerful punching. Almost immediately, de

:13:32.:13:36.

Silva onto the back foot. Good left-hand but again from Adams,

:13:37.:13:46.

shooting from the beltline on that occasion.

:13:47.:14:02.

De Silva getting tired, swinging fresh air.

:14:03.:14:11.

Nicola finishing the combination and giving herself plenty of space back

:14:12.:14:18.

into the centre of the ring. The opening bout macro of the tournament

:14:19.:14:23.

but de Silva, as the boxes exchange jabs. Adams got through with a cork

:14:24.:14:32.

in right hand and then a left to follow up. De Silva swivelled

:14:33.:14:35.

sideways. She is under increased and sustained

:14:36.:14:49.

pressure from Adams. She now gets back to distance and switches to the

:14:50.:14:55.

orthodox stance. Sensible. Adams could have kept the pressure on, but

:14:56.:15:01.

she knows she has done enough. Incredible jab. Rising jab from the

:15:02.:15:07.

hip. There was the shuffle from Adams. Again, Nicola Adams just

:15:08.:15:16.

drinking up the applause and encouragement from the crowd.

:15:17.:15:20.

Congratulations from the Sri Lankan corner. And Nicola Adams has surely

:15:21.:15:28.

just secured her place in the middle stages of the Commonwealth Games. A

:15:29.:15:31.

wonderful display during the course of this last eight bouts in the

:15:32.:15:33.

flyweight division. right up until the final bell that

:15:34.:15:46.

the variety from Adams demonstrated shots from every angle.

:15:47.:16:03.

there from Nicola Adams. Incredible resourcefulness. Switching her

:16:04.:16:07.

stances. Another excellent performance from Nicola Adams of

:16:08.:16:22.

England. Now through to the semifinal, England's Nicola Adams!

:16:23.:16:37.

Nicola Adams receives a standing ovation from the crowd here at the

:16:38.:16:43.

SECC. She has guaranteed herself a Commonwealth Games medal. What

:16:44.:16:49.

colour will it be? Will it be the English National Anthem playing on a

:16:50.:16:54.

medal day? She has booked a place in the final four. She will get a medal

:16:55.:16:59.

of some description. She will be aiming for nothing less than a gold

:17:00.:17:04.

medal in her division. That is the moment it was confirmed will stop a

:17:05.:17:09.

bowl to all sides of the arena. And now familiar celebration, with a

:17:10.:17:20.

punch perfect display against Erandi de Silva. The best people in all

:17:21.:17:29.

sports make it look so easy. I love the sport, I have a passion for it.

:17:30.:17:35.

I love the movement, I love the technique, speed, the skill, is

:17:36.:17:42.

beautiful. What she knew, it was like I was watching Usain Bolt, it

:17:43.:17:48.

was about entertainment as well. It is important, I love to entertain

:17:49.:17:55.

the crowd. If they are happy, I am happy and I have the medal already.

:17:56.:18:02.

Creating history all the time. It almost feels, it is the first time

:18:03.:18:06.

women have been boxing in the Commonwealth Games, but it feels

:18:07.:18:11.

like that is almost history already. Do you feel is established now?

:18:12.:18:17.

Definitely. I feel like women's boxing has moved on since 2012 and

:18:18.:18:20.

this is just the beginning. Congratulations. Thank you.

:18:21.:18:30.

Nicola Adams will fight the Canadian. Laura Weightman, won a

:18:31.:18:44.

silver medal last night. Congratulations. Is it sinking in?

:18:45.:18:50.

Slowly it is beginning to sink in. I do not think it will fully set in

:18:51.:18:56.

until I am on the podium tonight. During the race, it is all a blur

:18:57.:19:01.

and a whirlwind of emotions. The night after, you do not sleep. You

:19:02.:19:06.

do not know what you have achieved. How many times do you reckon you

:19:07.:19:16.

have rerun the win? I got the chance to watch the race back. She is right

:19:17.:19:34.

on your shoulder. I could send someone was coming up. I felt

:19:35.:19:41.

someone there. I wanted to get that medal. The noise was phenomenal.

:19:42.:19:51.

People were cheering for you and Laura Muir. It was like a Mexican

:19:52.:19:57.

wave of noise. The noise was incredible. I took it as mine and

:19:58.:20:07.

embraced it all and really enjoyed that. We first saw you at London

:20:08.:20:16.

2012 and it was an interesting moment when Steve Cram was assessing

:20:17.:20:20.

your progress. He is sure coach and there was a lot of talk about how he

:20:21.:20:34.

became your code. I was developing as an athlete and I was improving

:20:35.:20:39.

all the time and I was not happy with the setup I had. Steve was a

:20:40.:20:44.

local legend. I approached him and asked him for advice. I am lucky

:20:45.:20:51.

that since then, we have improved and I would not be sat here without

:20:52.:21:02.

him. No doubt about it. What is he like as a coach? Who

:21:03.:21:13.

him. No doubt about it. What is he together. -- we work well together.

:21:14.:21:25.

It is a great partnership. I am very lucky to have someone so experienced

:21:26.:21:31.

by team. You are a bit young to remember Steve in his heyday, but I

:21:32.:21:37.

wonder who best influencing new when you were growing up, I am thinking

:21:38.:21:43.

about Dame Kelly Holmes. Was she on your radar? One of my very first

:21:44.:21:51.

sporting memories was when Paula Radcliffe ran her world record. She

:21:52.:21:57.

is a hero of mine. Then Kelly Holmes winning the double gold. Those

:21:58.:22:02.

performances were incredible and it was great to see two of my heroes.

:22:03.:22:08.

It really inspires me when I am performing. I want to be like that.

:22:09.:22:18.

Distance running for women is brilliant. How much better is it

:22:19.:22:26.

becoming? It is hugely strong. The four of us in the final, we are

:22:27.:22:32.

running world-class times. British athletes have not run that quickly

:22:33.:22:37.

for a few years. It is good. You're getting up, training, you are wary

:22:38.:22:42.

about what the British athletes are doing, that gets you out of bed --

:22:43.:22:51.

worrying. Your phone must've been ringing off the hook. It has been

:22:52.:22:58.

crazy. I have been overwhelmed by the support. It has been crazy.

:22:59.:23:04.

Doing my lap of honour, to see so many friends and family that I did

:23:05.:23:08.

not know would be there, people from where I live, schoolteachers,

:23:09.:23:15.

reporters, it was incredible to see everyone. That is wonderful. Enjoy

:23:16.:23:24.

your moment on the podium. I get my medal at 7:45pm. We are going back

:23:25.:23:39.

to the boxing. It is four and this is her opening bowl in the

:23:40.:23:56.

competition -- -- Alanna Audley-Murphy. She is up against as

:23:57.:24:04.

Dominican boxer. She is 33 years of age and she is from London. Alanna

:24:05.:24:39.

Audley-Murphy is operating out of the orthodox stance. Her opponent is

:24:40.:24:52.

Valerian Spicer. She is catching her with a couple of

:24:53.:25:04.

hoax. Landing there with a power jab. -- hoax. Both boxers in the

:25:05.:25:17.

centre of the ring. Ashman hooks. Valerian Spicer comes back with her

:25:18.:25:23.

own left hook, nicely landing -- hooks. Beyond the midpoint of this

:25:24.:25:31.

opening round, both boxers looking for overhand rights. The final shot

:25:32.:25:42.

of that exchange from Valerian Spicer, a strong right cross will

:25:43.:25:51.

stop nudging left uppercut. Up was from Alanna Audley-Murphy. -- a

:25:52.:26:11.

strong right cross. Left hand from the right left combination got

:26:12.:26:16.

through for the boxer in blue. Uppercut success on the inside from

:26:17.:26:20.

Alanna Audley-Murphy. There is the Bell to end round number one. Not a

:26:21.:26:29.

lot to choose between the two. I think Valerian Spicer landed more

:26:30.:26:32.

eye-catching shots. It will be interesting to see how that round is

:26:33.:26:45.

scored. Alanna Audley-Murphy landing with her left but getting a straight

:26:46.:26:53.

counter back from Valerian Spicer. The three judges have decided that

:26:54.:26:56.

Valerian Spicer was dominant in that round. Valerian Spicer takes the

:26:57.:27:04.

opening round in unanimous fashion. Receiving instructions from Stewart

:27:05.:27:10.

or corner -- steward O'Connor in the blue corner. What is he likely to be

:27:11.:27:20.

saying -- Stewart? She needs to be dominant and start and end the

:27:21.:27:26.

exchange. A little bit more of the same, good start by Valerian Spicer.

:27:27.:27:31.

Moving into the second round. Alanna Audley-Murphy in red, 29 years of

:27:32.:27:37.

age, the reigning Northern Ireland champion. She is taking on Valerian

:27:38.:27:43.

Spicer, of dominator from the Islington boxing club in North

:27:44.:27:58.

London. -- Dominica. Valerian Spicer took the opening round in unanimous

:27:59.:28:02.

fashion. The referee allowing the boxers to work away. Alanna

:28:03.:28:09.

Audley-Murphy attempted to do so. Valerian Spicer just got caught

:28:10.:28:14.

there. Both boxers need to work on the clench. They are waiting for the

:28:15.:28:18.

referee to break them which is old-style. -- clinch. You have to

:28:19.:28:28.

make the most of being in range. Throw in your body shots. Beyond the

:28:29.:28:36.

midpoint of the second round, what a right hand from Alanna

:28:37.:28:38.

Audley-Murphy. Valerian Spicer initiates a clinch. Right-hand

:28:39.:28:45.

attempted by Alanna Audley-Murphy again. A couple of body shots. Wide

:28:46.:28:53.

off the mark with that right left combination was Alanna

:28:54.:28:55.

Audley-Murphy. We are into the final 30 seconds. She slips to the left.

:28:56.:29:03.

Alanna Audley-Murphy should not rely on that. There were a couple of

:29:04.:29:10.

swinging shots. Lovely left hook just missing their from Valerian

:29:11.:29:18.

Spicer. Ten seconds. A good right hand from Valerian Spicer, it

:29:19.:29:22.

appeared to get through. Round 2 ends. Valerian Spicer -- Alanna

:29:23.:29:31.

Audley-Murphy got some good shots. Yes, she was better there. She slips

:29:32.:29:37.

to the left there, forcing Valerian Spicer to hold on. We have a split

:29:38.:29:46.

in the decision of the judges. Two judges going for Alanna

:29:47.:29:50.

Audley-Murphy, one deciding that Valerian Spicer had it. It is tied

:29:51.:29:58.

for two of the judges. Valerian Spicer is up by two rounds. A strong

:29:59.:30:04.

response from Alanna Audley-Murphy. We are at the midpoint of this

:30:05.:30:24.

quarterfinal. So we move into the second half of this contest.

:30:25.:30:57.

Beautiful straight right hand from Spicer. This is a battle of the rear

:30:58.:31:09.

hands by both boxes. Both slipping to the rest, throwing the left-hand

:31:10.:31:14.

punch over the top. Audley-Murphy had the best feet in second round.

:31:15.:31:23.

Spicer started with the same shot in this round. -- she had the best of

:31:24.:31:32.

it in the second round. A little bit messy now. Lots of grappling,

:31:33.:31:41.

scrapping on the inside. Good left-hand from Audley-Murphy. " As

:31:42.:31:47.

once more but neither boxer able to walk away effectively. They both

:31:48.:31:52.

need to get that behind the jab. Little being made of the job there,

:31:53.:31:59.

apart from their from Spicer. -- the jab. It keeps your opponent at

:32:00.:32:08.

distance, at arms length, and allows you to come back. A cheeky little

:32:09.:32:14.

uppercut from Spicer and a response from Audley-Murphy with the right

:32:15.:32:23.

hand. The left jab from Audley-Murphy to end the round.

:32:24.:32:29.

Hugely competitive one. That flurry from Audley-Murphy. Will it be

:32:30.:32:32.

enough to tip the judges in her favour in this round?

:32:33.:32:46.

High intensity. Indicative of the intensive quality of the round.

:32:47.:32:59.

Important for the judges to see this kind of shots. Not able to bring you

:33:00.:33:09.

the score at this moment, but that was a hugely competitive round,

:33:10.:33:14.

given that the second was split, how will the judges have scored that

:33:15.:33:15.

third round? The fourth and final round. Women's

:33:16.:33:25.

50 kilograms lightweight action. -- 60 kilograms. A podium finish is at

:33:26.:33:38.

stake for the picture. -- for the winner.

:33:39.:33:50.

Good use of the legs from Spicer, causing Audley-Murphy to fall short.

:33:51.:34:01.

Neither boxer working away, but electing to hold and grapple,

:34:02.:34:06.

testing the strength of one another. Spicer has the strange over

:34:07.:34:10.

Audley-Murphy. She has lovely straight shots. She just needs to

:34:11.:34:15.

use it. Making it much easier for the judges to decide between the

:34:16.:34:20.

two. If they are stored here in a clinch, it is much easier for the

:34:21.:34:26.

judges to decide. Nobody working away when they are on shoulder to

:34:27.:34:31.

shoulder. The referee not issuing the instruction to break. This new

:34:32.:34:35.

interpretation of the rules under this new style of Olympic boxing

:34:36.:34:40.

where the head cards have been removed for the men and a ten point

:34:41.:34:42.

system is in effect. Who can produce a big finish to

:34:43.:34:58.

influence the judges? This work on the inside is a completely different

:34:59.:35:01.

skill that perhaps traditional women's boxing is not used to

:35:02.:35:06.

dealing. You have to work on the inside, make the most of those

:35:07.:35:09.

clinches. Really secure it with the judges.

:35:10.:35:20.

Scrappy conclusion to the fourth and final round. Given that we could not

:35:21.:35:26.

bring you the score officially of that third round, well, a hugely

:35:27.:35:31.

competitive contest as you would expect. Nothing less than a place on

:35:32.:35:38.

a medal podium is at stake. Will it go in the direction of Audley-Murphy

:35:39.:35:45.

or Spicer? Spicer took the opening round in unanimous fashion,

:35:46.:35:46.

Audley-Murphy responded brilliantly to take the second round for two the

:35:47.:35:51.

three judges. Here is a nice uppercut right on the inside from

:35:52.:35:56.

Spicer. Then an exchange of hooks. Absolutely a tight out, there.

:35:57.:36:04.

Stuart O'Connor in the corner and the Dominican coach, almost fighting

:36:05.:36:13.

with the girls in the corner. We have just seen the final, fourth of

:36:14.:36:19.

two -minute rounds. The score is only just been

:36:20.:36:35.

delivered to the arena so this could take some tabulating and working

:36:36.:36:39.

out. Will it be a split decision? Will it be unanimous?

:36:40.:36:44.

northern Irish flag that is waving proudly up in the stand. It is

:36:45.:37:30.

Alanna Audley-Murphy from this site club who has gone through. Just look

:37:31.:37:34.

at what it means for automatic. She will take her place on the medal

:37:35.:37:39.

stand here in Glasgow 2014. Valerian Spicer has been eliminated. She

:37:40.:37:44.

competed keenly but that is the verdict she did not want to hear, a

:37:45.:37:49.

loser by split decision at the quarterfinal stage, but she has most

:37:50.:37:53.

certainly made a mark with her impressive boxing and committed

:37:54.:37:57.

performances, to kill elite victory over the Olympian in her preliminary

:37:58.:37:58.

round about. -- concluding in her victory over

:37:59.:38:14.

the Olympian in the preliminary round bout.

:38:15.:38:27.

Watts from Australia. One more fight in this decision and it is Charlene

:38:28.:38:31.

Jones of Wales, the reigning world champion. She is the first Welsh

:38:32.:38:35.

woman ever to step into the ring in a major multisport event like this.

:38:36.:38:39.

She beat her Sri Lanka opponent yesterday and is up against an

:38:40.:38:46.

Indian fight on. -- Indian fighter now.

:38:47.:38:52.

COMMENTATOR: The 60 K lightweight final is against two boxers at

:38:53.:39:04.

opposite ends of the experience spectrum. The Indian is 32 years of

:39:05.:39:12.

age, the world champion back in 2006. She took a World Championship

:39:13.:39:17.

gold medal. Her opponent is 23 years of age, Charlene Jones from Wales.

:39:18.:39:21.

Both these boxers taking in their second bad here at the Commonwealth

:39:22.:39:25.

Games tournament and both were impressive indeed during the course

:39:26.:39:32.

of their opening contests. Jonas just attempting to edge the Indian

:39:33.:39:36.

back towards the ropes at she comes back with her own combinations.

:39:37.:39:43.

Marching forward with a shot. And she comes back there with a

:39:44.:39:56.

left-hand rear hook. Scheduled for four twos, in women's boxing.

:39:57.:40:06.

Right-hand success from Jonas to end that encounter. Both boxers flat

:40:07.:40:17.

footed. Plenty of The Scream and sparring with the jab. -- plenty of

:40:18.:40:24.

fainting and sparring with the jab. There is the bell to end round

:40:25.:40:55.

number one. Both boxers possessed brilliant speech.

:40:56.:41:01.

-- brilliant speed. Both boxers excelling during this quarterfinal.

:41:02.:41:18.

A tentative round at times. All judges have favoured Jones after

:41:19.:41:30.

that first round. Colleen Jones issuing the instructions to Charlene

:41:31.:41:31.

Jones in her corner. -- Colin. So we go into the second round.

:41:32.:41:52.

Charlene Jones is wearing blue, representing Wales. Took the opening

:41:53.:41:57.

round in unanimous fashion. Devi of India, the world champion gold

:41:58.:42:02.

medallist from back in 2006, she has got a couple of bronzes from that

:42:03.:42:06.

tournament as well so she is experienced and accomplished. Jones

:42:07.:42:21.

is trying to fight off the ropes. She took a couple of shots flush to

:42:22.:42:28.

the head from Devi. But she came back with her own shots from the

:42:29.:42:29.

ropes. Devi more often than not on the

:42:30.:42:42.

front foot. Jones uses her legs are effectively

:42:43.:42:55.

to get away from the punching of Devi. Good double jab. The second

:42:56.:43:04.

one got through from Jones. When Devi launches those attacks, Jones

:43:05.:43:11.

needs to step off to the side rather than go backwards. Then she can

:43:12.:43:35.

throw her own counters. Right-hand counter as Jones came in from Devi

:43:36.:43:37.

was really effective. There is the bell to end round

:43:38.:43:53.

number two. Boxes touching gloves in respect. Another competitive round

:43:54.:43:56.

that Devi, having conceded the opening round, came out strong in

:43:57.:44:02.

that second. She did exactly what she needed to do that, increased the

:44:03.:44:06.

tempo, the pace, the volume of shots. She caught Charlene Jones

:44:07.:44:12.

with a number of eye-catching shots. Four, five shot combination.

:44:13.:44:22.

Charlene Jones trying to fight back but as we suspect, all three judges

:44:23.:44:26.

have favoured Devi after the second round. So at the halfway stage, we

:44:27.:44:33.

have parity. Devi taking the second round in unanimous fashion. So

:44:34.:44:37.

everything to compete for in the second half of this lightweight

:44:38.:44:38.

quarterfinal. So be moved into the second half of

:44:39.:44:52.

the contest. Charlene Jones conceded the second round and has come out

:44:53.:44:57.

blazing at being met head on by an opponent equally determined. Furious

:44:58.:45:03.

exchange. Both boxers enjoying success and the last fusillade of

squaring up to each other. Devi just getting the better of that very long

:45:17.:45:20.

exchange at the beginning of the third round. Hard single right-hand

:45:21.:45:27.

got through from James. A couple of shots got through from the flashing

:45:28.:45:38.

fists of Devi as well. Charlene Jones just succumbing to the speed

of Devi as well. Left-hand success but then counter

right-hand success from Jones. It is all exchanges and they are operating

in centre rain. Not using the space or perimeter of the ring at all --

:46:06.:46:15.

ring. Told to toe exchanges. Jones needs to change this -- tow. She

:46:16.:46:22.

needs to allow Devi to throw instead of exchanging, because she is not

getting the better of these exchanges. The contest being fought

at a terrific tempo. There is ten seconds. A firefight occurring. Good

:46:39.:46:50.

movement from Jones to allow those shots from Devi to fail over her

:46:51.:46:57.

head. Good competitive boxing. Lots of action. I suspect the judges will

:46:58.:47:03.

have favoured Devi. Charlene Jones can make it easier for herself if

:47:04.:47:10.

they could stand and throw sharks, head hunting, very little going for

the body. -- throwing shots. Two judges favouring Devi, one judge

left-hand success from Jones, but a left-hand counter image on leave

:48:27.:48:37.

box intelligently. What an amazing shot by the Indian. She needs to

:48:38.:48:43.

find the angle. She needs to change her tactics and forced Devi to miss

:48:44.:48:48.

and capitalise on the counter. -- force. She is trying to repel the

:48:49.:48:55.

shots. We are inside the final minute of the final round. Both

boxers looking to get themselves on the medal podium. There is a cheeky

:49:03.:49:11.

right hook from Jones. Devi falls short with her response. Devi is

using the ring better. Jones needs to forced Devi to fall in and come

:49:19.:49:26.

back with her counters. Devi fighting with her back close to the

that will resonate with the judges ayes and other exchange, left
