variety here in Glasgow. We have some stunning gymnastics,

:00:50.:00:52.

spectacular diving, horrific boxing and three Olympic champions in track

:00:53.:00:55.

and field" Wolf story. You can coach had to jump further,

:00:56.:01:14.

run faster, throw further, but when the pressure is on and on time has

:01:15.:01:21.

come, will that be enough? The essence of the champion is something

:01:22.:01:28.

from within. You can't learn it, train for it or bottle it. It's what

:01:29.:01:32.

makes you who you are, blocking out those who stand in your way. What

:01:33.:01:42.

you know is yours and yours to take. You can't live in the past. The

:01:43.:01:51.

present is all that matters. New obstacles, new challenges, new

:01:52.:01:53.

surroundings, the price remains the same. -- the price. To be a

:01:54.:01:58.

champion. The top trio of Rutherford, Adams

:01:59.:02:10.

and James take centre stage but they are not the only big names in action

:02:11.:02:11.

tonight. In the men's 800 Metres, David

:02:12.:02:20.

Rudisha, star of London 2012. Northern Ireland's golden boy Paddy

:02:21.:02:33.

Barnes has his sights on a light flyweight semifinal spot. The

:02:34.:02:42.

English hopes in the gymnastics blue riband are led by Claudio cranky

:02:43.:02:48.

parley. But Lizzie Beddoe from Wales is also in the mix. It should be

:02:49.:02:56.

some light in the Hydro arena. -- some night.

:02:57.:03:04.

We will stop off with diving in a moment, and then we are at Hampden

:03:05.:03:13.

for the track and field after that. Just before eight, there is boxing

:03:14.:03:16.

then we are back to athletics for the men's 400 Metres final, then

:03:17.:03:22.

David Rudisha runs in the aged metres and we end with gymnastics

:03:23.:03:26.

and the women's all-around. -- the 800 Metres. Michael Johnson is at

:03:27.:03:29.

Hampden. We have to start with the event in

:03:30.:03:37.

which he still holds the world record, the 400 Metres. Amazing you

:03:38.:03:42.

still hold it but Kirani James is surely the man to watch tonight.

:03:43.:03:48.

Yes, he is. I think he will have his hands full. With the lane draw, he

:03:49.:03:54.

drew the outside lane, Lane 6. Martyn Rooney is in a great

:03:55.:04:00.

position, if we go back to last year, when Kirani James lost the

:04:01.:04:04.

World Championship to LaShawn Merritt, he got caught up in a

:04:05.:04:09.

situation where he was following LaShawn Merritt and got out of his

:04:10.:04:15.

race. I think this may bode well for him, he runs best when he runs his

:04:16.:04:20.

own race. There is no real content on his outside. But I think it is

:04:21.:04:26.

his to lose, I think he knows that and he is out for revenge for last

:04:27.:04:32.

year. What can we expect from Martyn Rooney? He ran well in qualifying. I

:04:33.:04:38.

certainly hope he can take advantage of this situation, he had a very

:04:39.:04:42.

good preliminary run, you followed it up with a really good semifinal

:04:43.:04:48.

yesterday where he was in control, and he was rewarded with a very good

:04:49.:04:53.

lane draw, Lane 5 just inside Kirani James. So everything is set up for

:04:54.:04:58.

him tonight and his attitude has been fantastic throughout these

:04:59.:05:02.

championships, he seems to be healthy and in the best shape we

:05:03.:05:05.

have seen him for a while. I would hope he can get a medal stop I think

:05:06.:05:11.

it's unrealistic to expect him to beat Kirani James unless something

:05:12.:05:14.

goes wrong with James or he gets it wrong, which we know he did last

:05:15.:05:20.

year. His beard is pretty impressive as well! You don't see too many of

:05:21.:05:25.

those in athletics! Do you think it could slow him down? Identikit will

:05:26.:05:31.

slow him down but it is very interesting, I like the look -- I

:05:32.:05:36.

don't think it will slow him down. It does along with the attitude, and

:05:37.:05:40.

maybe it's good luck for him. Whatever works! I was trying to

:05:41.:05:47.

think of some good runners with beards that were impressive and the

:05:48.:05:50.

only one we could come up with was Ed Moses. He had one for a while,

:05:51.:06:03.

Juantorena had one with an Afro, he ran the 400 and 800, you have to be

:06:04.:06:09.

tough to run those two! May be Martyn Rooney is onto something

:06:10.:06:13.

here. Looking forward to seeing David Rudisha tonight. You always

:06:14.:06:20.

get the question is a former athlete, who would you pay to see? I

:06:21.:06:24.

would pay to see him, he is a fantastic athlete. He runs the 800

:06:25.:06:30.

like lots of 800 Metres don't run it, many times at a championship

:06:31.:06:33.

like this you will see gamesmanship, you will see someone winning with a

:06:34.:06:40.

1.44, I don't expect that when he is in the race, he takes it out hard

:06:41.:06:45.

and runs the entire 800. He has had to come back from injuries. The

:06:46.:06:49.

other athletes in that field have been inconsistent whereas he has

:06:50.:06:53.

improved with every race this year. He won't be the Rudisha ran 1.40 in

:06:54.:07:01.

London, but he is getting into the best shape at the right time. We

:07:02.:07:05.

will join you later but we will start in the swimming pool. We have

:07:06.:07:10.

seen our fair share of diving, but hopefully what we will show you now

:07:11.:07:17.

will be more elegant. David Law was competing in the one metre

:07:18.:07:21.

springboard final and going into the final set of dives, Jaguar was in

:07:22.:07:25.

the lead. He has a chance of a medal for

:07:26.:07:56.

Jamaica in the one metre springboard for men here in Edinburgh. I

:07:57.:08:01.

wouldn't get too excited just yet, a lot of big names still to come but

:08:02.:08:10.

he is in a great position. Final dive for Langer. What a dive to

:08:11.:08:11.

finish! It has been quite frustrating for

:08:12.:08:22.

him, I imagine, but this is a sensational dive to finish on. He

:08:23.:08:27.

will get eights from the judges. I have only seen better from Jack

:08:28.:08:38.

Laugher. For those who have just joined us, the moment it looks like

:08:39.:08:41.

Jack Laugher is different territory and is on his way to a gold for

:08:42.:08:52.

England. It is so tight for the minor medals, we might possibly see

:08:53.:08:59.

a Jamaican medal, which would be a great credit to the city of Leeds.

:09:00.:09:05.

Liam Stone has had a great performance, finishing off with the

:09:06.:09:11.

reverse two and a half somersaults. Terrific dive from the 17-year-old

:09:12.:09:17.

Kiwi! Everyone has woken up in this last round! Up through the roof,

:09:18.:09:26.

beautiful wine into the water. Come on, judges. I know he's only 17, but

:09:27.:09:36.

look at that! 8.5s across the board. They don't produce many divers, New

:09:37.:09:41.

Zealand, been awhile since they have anybody on the world stage, but

:09:42.:09:45.

that's tremendous, really good from Liam Stone. Only 17 years of age. So

:09:46.:09:55.

much potential. The man currently in bronze medal position.

:09:56.:10:09.

What a dive! That is astonishing! I cannot believe that dive is possible

:10:10.:10:17.

on the one metre. When he needed it, that is right there. That man is

:10:18.:10:24.

going to get sevens on this dive, it is 3.6, goodness me, what a degree

:10:25.:10:29.

of difficulty. That is a medal for the Australian, for sure. Gets the

:10:30.:10:33.

job done. A lot depends on the remaining

:10:34.:10:51.

divers. Woodward is not in the mix, the evening has proved more

:10:52.:10:54.

difficult for the city of Sheffield diver. 3.1 the degree of difficulty,

:10:55.:11:01.

he will want to finish with a flourish.

:11:02.:11:10.

He does a good joke I am so impressed with, he was out there

:11:11.:11:18.

mixing it up this morning, a reflection of that on his inward to

:11:19.:11:22.

run the half, over rotating as he heads towards the water, he should

:11:23.:11:26.

be smiling, he is a star of the future. 6.5s across the board,

:11:27.:11:34.

multiplied by the degree of difficulty, gives you his final

:11:35.:11:38.

store. Now we are down to the sharp end of the final round. We know that

:11:39.:11:44.

Grant Nel has a medal. We don't know whether Chris Mears has.

:11:45.:11:54.

Outstanding! What a dive from Chris Mears! This is going to punch it

:11:55.:12:03.

right up, I have no idea whether this is going to be good enough for

:12:04.:12:07.

the podium. What a sensational final dive. It's going to be close to 400,

:12:08.:12:14.

not good enough to take out Grant Nel. I think that's a medal. It

:12:15.:12:23.

looks like bronze, probably, although we have Mitch to come and

:12:24.:12:29.

then we have checked temp two. -- Jack Laugher.

:12:30.:12:39.

Hello! Marvellous diver from Mitch. That is a magnificent final dive. So

:12:40.:12:51.

elegant. Two and a half twists, one and a half somersaults. That could

:12:52.:12:54.

be challenging his team-mate for the gold. He is very happy! It's all

:12:55.:13:05.

going off here. It's getting ridiculous. There are going to be

:13:06.:13:08.

two medals for Australia. Laugher needs just 31.75 marks to

:13:09.:13:18.

take the gold for England. A diving masterclass from this young

:13:19.:13:37.

Englishman. 19 years old, there is your Commonwealth champion, by a

:13:38.:13:43.

country mile. What a dive to finish from Jack. He is electric.

:13:44.:13:52.

We thought this morning was impressive, with thought this

:13:53.:13:57.

morning maybe couldn't be surpassed, he has done it by something

:13:58.:14:03.

ridiculous. That is truly world-class. He is a former world

:14:04.:14:12.

and European junior champion. He is now realising all that potential.

:14:13.:14:18.

Wisdom, congratulating him there, representing Jamaica, finishing in

:14:19.:14:24.

fifth place. In the end, only 12 points away from a medal, Chris

:14:25.:14:31.

Mears was seven points away. Jack Laugher, winning by a Street. Gold

:14:32.:14:39.

for England. Silver and bronze for Australia.

:14:40.:14:47.

Congratulations, Commonwealth champion, how does that feel?

:14:48.:14:52.

Absolutely amazing. I'm lost for words. This morning was great. To

:14:53.:15:01.

come out here and score almost 450 on one metre is amazing. I am

:15:02.:15:07.

ecstatic. You didn't do it the easy way, you kept us hanging on. With

:15:08.:15:16.

the nerves creeping Going last is hard so the first two were a bit

:15:17.:15:21.

shaky. As soon as I got into my rhythm, it went well. I am really,

:15:22.:15:28.

really happy. Bronze medal at the World Cup recently, or what is

:15:29.:15:32.

clicking? I am training hard, I have moved from home, I have my

:15:33.:15:36.

independence and I training full-time with my best friend Chris

:15:37.:15:40.

Mears. Bronze at the World Cup is amazing and to get Gold here is

:15:41.:15:44.

amazing. I am trying hard and it is paying off. Does this put the

:15:45.:15:49.

Olympics right? Definitely. It was tough doing that but I think you

:15:50.:15:54.

learn from your mistakes and make sure they never happen again. It was

:15:55.:15:58.

a horrible experience but I made the best out of it and I bounced back

:15:59.:16:03.

and got a double Gold at the Junior Championships. A three metre

:16:04.:16:10.

springboard, can you double up? Yes, and another with Chris. I would love

:16:11.:16:14.

to double up. I have not thought about it yet. So many thoughts in my

:16:15.:16:19.

head, I am so happy. I will try my hardest. Congratulations, well

:16:20.:16:28.

done, Commonwealth Gold. Thank you. Well done, indeed. A great

:16:29.:16:32.

performance. And England's Tonia Couch and Sarah Barrow won a silver

:16:33.:16:38.

medal in the synchronised ten metre but form. Canada took Gold. --

:16:39.:16:46.

platform. A great effort from the girls this

:16:47.:16:53.

morning. Laugher Silver medals round their necks. Great stuff. -- silver

:16:54.:17:00.

medals. And Tom Daley is in action on Friday. The ten metres

:17:01.:17:06.

synchronised final, he partners James Denny. And he will. The

:17:07.:17:11.

defence of his ten metre platform title on Saturday. -- start the

:17:12.:17:20.

defence. We will have that live. Saturday night is prime time,

:17:21.:17:25.

diving, Tom Daley, something is missing. I know!

:17:26.:17:30.

Very good! It is a shame you are busy on Saturday nights. Welcome to

:17:31.:17:35.

Hampden Park is for another fantastic athletics programme this

:17:36.:17:40.

evening. The sun was peeking through before and it has been a silver

:17:41.:17:44.

experience so far for England. They picked up silver medals yesterday

:17:45.:17:49.

and let's hope tonight has a Golden Globe, this is what is in store. --

:17:50.:17:56.

golden low. A golden boy from London, Greg Rutherford, the Olympic

:17:57.:18:01.

champion, in the long jump. We will bring you up to speed in a moment.

:18:02.:18:05.

He is the favourite, can the British record-holder hold it together best

:18:06.:18:09.

remark Eilish McColgan will feature in the steeplechase. -- hold it

:18:10.:18:14.

together? Come of it as a Commonwealth Gold medal winner. --

:18:15.:18:24.

home mother. Theisen-Eaton is in pole position for the 800 metres.

:18:25.:18:31.

And it is the women's javelin final featuring Goldie Sayers. And

:18:32.:18:39.

continuing with the golden theme, Olympic champion Kirani James.

:18:40.:18:44.

Martin Rooney is looking good for England. And David Rudisha, more

:18:45.:18:51.

Stardust to a fabulous line-up this evening. He is a crowd-pleaser. Greg

:18:52.:19:01.

Rutherford rogue the British record earlier this year and he has missed

:19:02.:19:05.

a couple of competitions -- broke. Let's see how he is getting on, with

:19:06.:19:09.

Steve. No matter what happens in future

:19:10.:19:21.

Olympic Games, nothing will come close to super Saturday. Everything

:19:22.:19:28.

went right and I got to experience the greatest moment of my life. As

:19:29.:19:34.

soon as I hit and I took off, and knew it was pretty good. It was the

:19:35.:19:41.

third best jump of my career. And it would take me on to becoming the

:19:42.:19:46.

Olympic champion, which is special and amazing. When you have done

:19:47.:19:57.

well, everybody expects you to do it every single time and no athlete in

:19:58.:20:00.

the world, possibly Usain Bolt, but apart from that, not many can get it

:20:01.:20:05.

right every time so when it does go wrong, you get more criticism and

:20:06.:20:10.

you have to deal with that and understand it. After the injury last

:20:11.:20:14.

year and how my body reacted at the World Championships, I was not sure

:20:15.:20:19.

if I would get back to the level I had been previously. How significant

:20:20.:20:26.

to you the Commonwealth Games? It is the biggest focus of 2014 and it is

:20:27.:20:31.

the focus since I came back from the injury, it has been going out in

:20:32.:20:36.

Glasgow and becoming the Commonwealth champion. Everything I

:20:37.:20:38.

am doing is geared towards winning. Jessica Tappin on the runway!

:20:39.:20:57.

The men's Long Jump final. First to go is England's Greg Rutherford, the

:20:58.:21:02.

Olympic champion. He must at his bit to become a Commonwealth champion.

:21:03.:21:07.

Joined by two English team-mates. The skies have cleared and the wind

:21:08.:21:10.

has dropped. Showtime for Greg Rutherford. Round

:21:11.:21:19.

one. The men's Long Jump final. He looks quick on the runway and

:21:20.:21:49.

that is beyond eight metres. That is over eight metres. Heart in my

:21:50.:21:55.

mouth. I could feel the tension at Hampden Park, a lot of expectation

:21:56.:21:59.

for Greg Rutherford. The lead qualifier here yesterday and he has

:22:00.:22:09.

improved on that John yesterday. That is a decent start. Dash-macro

:22:10.:22:17.

three. He has set the mark. -- jump. Crucial he gets close. He has 14

:22:18.:22:23.

centimetres to spare. That is very sensible. That is a decent

:22:24.:22:32.

benchmark. He knows who will have two improved but he normally does

:22:33.:22:36.

feel his way into a competition. -- he will have to improve. He knew a

:22:37.:22:42.

jump beyond eight metres was put on the pressure. -- would put on the

:22:43.:22:50.

pressure. This South African was very impressive in qualifications

:22:51.:22:53.

yesterday. He jumped beyond eight metres.

:22:54.:23:06.

Registe We can expect him to be one of the main challenges to Greg

:23:07.:23:13.

Rutherford -- we can expect. That looks very similar to Greg

:23:14.:23:24.

Rutherford. The 22-year-old South African. A decent start also for

:23:25.:23:40.

South Africa and Samaai. Great height of the board. Good

:23:41.:23:50.

discipline. No fouls yet. Three down, three clean. Great

:23:51.:23:56.

acceleration. Look at the height, very impressive indeed.

:23:57.:24:02.

England's Chris Tomlinson. Second attempt. Currently in eighth

:24:03.:24:15.

position with seven metres and 95. That is better. That looks maybe

:24:16.:24:23.

just over eight metres. It sounded good, and that is the white flag to

:24:24.:24:29.

say it was behind the plasticine. Chris is looking across. 7.99. It

:24:30.:24:37.

moves him up to fourth place, that is how tight it is this afternoon.

:24:38.:24:44.

People have to jump beyond eight metres to get a medal. -- he will

:24:45.:24:57.

have to jump. Somebody has to take this competition and it may be best

:24:58.:25:03.

man. Visser, of South Africa. It is big, from the South African. It is

:25:04.:25:10.

good on the board. You got the impression the athletes were saying,

:25:11.:25:14.

who fancies this? 8.124 Rutherford in the first mount -- in the first

:25:15.:25:24.

round is maybe not enough. -- 8.12 the Greg Rutherford. Quick on the

:25:25.:25:28.

approach. Good on the board. Good acceleration. Possibly more to come.

:25:29.:25:37.

And that is zero centimetres. That has got to be close to a foul. His

:25:38.:25:42.

toes were over the plasticine. But did not make a mark. The jump is

:25:43.:25:49.

legal. Round three, at this Long Jump

:25:50.:25:54.

final. Greg Rutherford has been stood at the back of this runway --

:25:55.:26:01.

round three of this Long Jump final. He is so keen. Look at that! He knew

:26:02.:26:09.

he could take that lead back. Slightly jumping into a headwind.

:26:10.:26:19.

Greg Rutherford was the road as soon as he saw that big jump from Visser.

:26:20.:26:25.

8.20. That has wrestled the lead back away from the South African.

:26:26.:26:35.

Greg Rutherford of England, at the start of the third round, is in the

:26:36.:26:42.

lead. At the halfway stage. Quick on the approach, very committed. He

:26:43.:26:47.

hits that board. He looks so confident. He absolutely was bang on

:26:48.:26:55.

where he wanted to be. Excellent acceleration, he ran off the board.

:26:56.:27:07.

8.20. Well done, Greg. So that takes him to the top of that standings.

:27:08.:27:17.

Visser the second. In South Africa it in third also. -- in third. Chris

:27:18.:27:34.

Tomlinson is capable. We think Henry Frain has withdrawn after a foul in

:27:35.:27:43.

the first round. He won his Gold in London and he

:27:44.:27:47.

became the British record-holder this year, and a .20 might be enough

:27:48.:27:51.

or will the South Africans pushed him -- 8.20?

:27:52.:27:58.

The South Africans look great and they are moving well on the runway

:27:59.:28:03.

but there is something about Greg this season.

:28:04.:28:11.

was criticised about not being able to jump at the Olympics. I think

:28:12.:28:18.

that played on his mind. Now he has that in the back, he can relax and

:28:19.:28:24.

he has looked good on the runway. How he transfers his speed into a

:28:25.:28:29.

vertical left gives him the distance. He is good at that. --

:28:30.:28:35.

left. His ability to respond under pressure, you have just seen. It was

:28:36.:28:42.

not last year, he was a bit injured and you sensed he was not feeling

:28:43.:28:47.

the love. Like he wanted to be appreciated more. And because that

:28:48.:28:52.

was not the greatest distance in the Olympic Games and that was

:28:53.:28:55.

mentioned, it is like he wants to back-up that Gold with another to

:28:56.:29:00.

say that it was not a one-off, he is the real deal and he will be in

:29:01.:29:06.

contention in two years. There are some athletes who as a result of the

:29:07.:29:10.

Olympic championship and everything that goes with that, there is a lot

:29:11.:29:14.

of expectation and some deal with it better than others. Greg had a lot

:29:15.:29:20.

of expectation after that and people felt, it was not the best Olympic

:29:21.:29:25.

championships for a Long Jump and may be it was a bit of a fluke. --

:29:26.:29:32.

may be. So he had a bit of a chip on his shoulder. I am not sure he

:29:33.:29:37.

handled it the right way and it spiralled out of control in

:29:38.:29:40.

negativity, and now he is trying to come back. He does have a bit of a

:29:41.:29:46.

motivation because of that. And sometimes that is what an athlete

:29:47.:29:47.

needs. On super Saturday, the sometimes that is what an athlete

:29:48.:29:53.

needs. On super Saturday, one that Gold and it was the most wonderful

:29:54.:29:59.

night. -- the one that Gold. He was part of history and remembered

:30:00.:30:02.

because of that and he will forever be part of that wonderful evening.

:30:03.:30:07.

And last year, people questioned his motivation, was he going to go down

:30:08.:30:13.

the route of appearing on celebrity television and he was enjoying that

:30:14.:30:17.

part of his life, but he is back with a vengeance. Really and

:30:18.:30:22.

yesterday when we saw him leaving after his qualification rounds and

:30:23.:30:25.

he was lapping up the attention from the crowd and signing autographs and

:30:26.:30:27.

enjoying being on form again. appreciating the crowd, who were a

:30:28.:30:39.

lot of people too young for his autograph and he just took his time

:30:40.:30:46.

to do that. -- queueing up. The fact he won on super Saturday was

:30:47.:30:49.

double-edged because he will always be part of that moment in history

:30:50.:30:53.

and it was a very special day for British athletes but at the same

:30:54.:30:59.

time, he was also a bit overshadowed because Jess was the nation 's

:31:00.:31:02.

sweetheart and she was used in all of the campaigns, and she delivered

:31:03.:31:07.

and fully deserved that. She got a huge amount of recognition and

:31:08.:31:13.

publicity because of that, and Mo Farah accomplished something that

:31:14.:31:16.

had never been done before, so in some way, those two

:31:17.:31:19.

had never been done before, so in some way, those kind of upstaged

:31:20.:31:24.

Greg in a way that was unfair, because all you can do is beat who

:31:25.:31:27.

is there on the day and deliver the best performance in matters which is

:31:28.:31:33.

what he did. Sometimes, there is an expectation after winning the gold

:31:34.:31:41.

medal, and it doesn't always happen. Not only in athletics. We had a very

:31:42.:31:47.

successful games all round, people needed to digest that, and he did a

:31:48.:31:52.

lot of celebrity stuff, and that's fine to stop but in a way that is

:31:53.:31:57.

good for athletics, it puts it in the mainstream, which it has done to

:31:58.:32:06.

an extent. I think it ended up backfiring on him because of exactly

:32:07.:32:11.

what they said, you have to understand the situation you are in,

:32:12.:32:14.

there are different levels of Olympic champions. It's like the 100

:32:15.:32:22.

Metres, the heptathlon for Jess was like the 100 Metres. For Mo Farah,

:32:23.:32:29.

the double was like the 100 Metres. When you are the 100 Metres

:32:30.:32:33.

champion, lots of things come to you. The Long Jump is not that kind

:32:34.:32:38.

of event and it's unfortunate for Greg that he expected those things

:32:39.:32:42.

to come to him and he expected, I am an Olympic champion on par with Mo

:32:43.:32:47.

Farah and Jess Ennis, I should be. But that's not how the public or

:32:48.:32:53.

media are going to see it. He is going to be a father this year as

:32:54.:32:57.

well, things going very well in his private life. And there we have a

:32:58.:33:02.

show called, lining up the 3000 metres steeplechase. -- Eilish

:33:03.:33:11.

McColgan. She needs to look no further than her mother for

:33:12.:33:14.

inspiration as to how to win a Commonwealth medal, 1986. Huge

:33:15.:33:21.

inspiration from her mother and also her father, he still holds the

:33:22.:33:32.

Northern Irish record for that. Here she is, winning a Commonwealth title

:33:33.:33:37.

back in 1986. They don't look alike but they're running style... It is

:33:38.:33:44.

very similar. When I see a leash training, I just think, you are so

:33:45.:33:57.

much like your mum. She has battled back this year, she has had a rough

:33:58.:34:03.

year. She finding form. I know you went to see her last year, she came

:34:04.:34:07.

ninth in the World Championships and things were looking up for her but

:34:08.:34:11.

the heart palpitations and the training has not gone as she would

:34:12.:34:13.

have liked but she is in front of training has not gone as she would

:34:14.:34:18.

have liked but her own crowd. She has a strong line-up, the Kenyans,

:34:19.:34:22.

absolutely imperious at the steeplechase. Let's join the

:34:23.:34:26.

commentary team. A very proud Rachael Bamford as

:34:27.:34:40.

well, running for England. O Flaherty, going for Northern

:34:41.:34:49.

Ireland. These introductions, surely having an inspirational effect on

:34:50.:35:00.

these home home countries runners. Kipkemoi, by no means guaranteed to

:35:01.:35:05.

get a medal despite the great pedigree of the Kenyans. Another

:35:06.:35:07.

young lady who was delighted to be here, Philippa Woolven. Victoria

:35:08.:35:20.

Mitchell from Australia. And just listen to the rule for Lennie Waite.

:35:21.:35:24.

-- the raw. It has been a troubled year for

:35:25.:35:41.

Eilish, I am not sure what sort of performance we are going to get from

:35:42.:35:43.

her. Eilish, I am not sure what sort of

:35:44.:35:45.

performance At her best, she is our number one steeplechaser. She would

:35:46.:35:51.

have dreamt of this moment for a couple of years.

:35:52.:36:01.

The women's 3000 metres steeplechase final. Just over seven and a half

:36:02.:36:09.

laps of the track, the water jump is on the inside. The first time round,

:36:10.:36:18.

they miss it out. These three Kenyan athlete, they have the defending

:36:19.:36:26.

champion, and this event, only the third time it has been contested in

:36:27.:36:37.

the Commonwealth Games. Kirui is a former world junior champion. And

:36:38.:36:41.

the rather not this figure of Kipkemoi. It hasn't taken very long

:36:42.:36:50.

for the Kenyan female athletes to dominate this event like they do the

:36:51.:36:57.

men's event. Just looking at the back straight there, the crowd are

:36:58.:37:03.

getting really excited here, watching Eilish McColgan and Lennie

:37:04.:37:12.

Waite representing Scotland. Thereafter we could Australian

:37:13.:37:14.

athletes in this field, but the class of the field, probably the

:37:15.:37:21.

best in the last few years is Cheywa of Kenya. They are just keeping the

:37:22.:37:32.

pace how they wanted. Watch Eilish the water jump, she doesn't touch

:37:33.:37:38.

the barrier, but I think that motor down when she hits the other end. --

:37:39.:37:44.

slows down. A little bit of a handicap. At the back of the field,

:37:45.:37:49.

they talk about the Commonwealth Games and it is the friendly games

:37:50.:37:55.

but it's such a target the people, Rachael Bamford only just took up

:37:56.:38:00.

the steeplechase this year. She has improved 30 seconds already this

:38:01.:38:03.

year to go under ten minutes for the first time recently. What a chance

:38:04.:38:09.

for her. Imagine the start of the season, thinking about running local

:38:10.:38:13.

events, and then you find yourself at the Commonwealth Games. That's

:38:14.:38:18.

what it's all about, to have these athletes, to give them the taste of

:38:19.:38:23.

the international stage. A lot of them are inspired to move on to a

:38:24.:38:28.

new level. The pace, moving along steadily. At this point looks solid,

:38:29.:38:36.

not to excessively quick, there is Eilish McColgan, hurdling well. As

:38:37.:38:41.

they come into the water, she moves on to the outside, running fairly

:38:42.:38:48.

strongly, and I always watch her technique at the water. She doesn't

:38:49.:38:53.

touch the barrier, and always loses ground at every point. Still the

:38:54.:39:02.

early stages. McColgan at the back of the lead group. A busy night here

:39:03.:39:08.

at Hampden. Track and field finals. We will find out what is going on

:39:09.:39:10.

now in the High Jump. Second attempt at 2.25 for Chris

:39:11.:39:16.

Baker. Didn't look so good as his first

:39:17.:39:32.

attempt but very good on his second. Three other men have gone clear on

:39:33.:39:41.

the first attempt. The Englishman, the only one from the home countries

:39:42.:39:44.

left in this competition, finds himself in fourth place.

:39:45.:39:55.

He has had three jumps so far, first-time clearances at all of

:39:56.:40:04.

them. This should be a formality and it is. A huge favourite to take the

:40:05.:40:15.

title here. Just look at this, perfect High Jump technique,

:40:16.:40:19.

considered to be one of the best technicians in the world. The

:40:20.:40:23.

standard, very, very high. Four laps to go, three Kenyans and

:40:24.:40:34.

three Australians pulling away, you don't often say that in a

:40:35.:40:38.

steeplechase. The very talented Lacaze, with the blonde hair, and on

:40:39.:40:42.

the inside, the Tory Mitchell, hanging onto this Kenyan trio.

:40:43.:40:51.

Eilish McColgan, just trying to get back onto them, if she can stay with

:40:52.:40:56.

them, I think one of the Kenyans is not as good as the other two.

:40:57.:41:06.

Kipkemoi is vulnerable. I think the Australians know that, they have

:41:07.:41:09.

been thinking about that, 06 athletes pulling away from Eilish

:41:10.:41:16.

McColgan, she is going through a bit of a bad patch. She has had a really

:41:17.:41:20.

tough year, with the heart palpitations, you don't know how

:41:21.:41:23.

that will affect you when you are running. Once again, McColgan not

:41:24.:41:34.

going brilliantly over the water. Kirui, probably the second best in

:41:35.:41:45.

this field. The Australian team of three, with Victoria Mitchell of the

:41:46.:41:48.

back of the group, trying to hang onto the Kenyans. They are giving

:41:49.:42:00.

them a run for their money. Purity Kirui, the former world junior

:42:01.:42:06.

champion. On the outside, the defending champion, Cheywa, she

:42:07.:42:11.

finished third in the Diamond League. It shows you can get amongst

:42:12.:42:20.

the African runners in this event. Eilish McColgan, still working

:42:21.:42:23.

hard, leading the British challenge but it's a challenge which is a

:42:24.:42:30.

distant one now. No chance of living with the Australians, who are mixing

:42:31.:42:35.

it up here. Victoria Mitchell just dropping off the back of that pack

:42:36.:42:41.

now. Lacaze beat her team-mate Heiner recently and she might be

:42:42.:42:45.

hoping as they get to the latter stages, you start to think about

:42:46.:42:50.

medals now, you are in this group and yes, there is real Kenyan talent

:42:51.:42:54.

there but now they start to believe a little bit. Heiner, not overawed

:42:55.:43:02.

at all. Cheywa, with the strapping on her leg, she is starting to move

:43:03.:43:10.

to the front with Kirui. There is McColgan and Woolven and Bamford,

:43:11.:43:17.

all the running together. That will be another race. McColgan, hurdling

:43:18.:43:23.

well over the barriers. The three Kenyans, settling in the first three

:43:24.:43:25.

positions. Just a gradual wearing down of the

:43:26.:43:37.

field. Now Lacaze looks like she might be the only wanted to stay

:43:38.:43:42.

with the Kenyans, Heiner starts to get under pressure. The Australians,

:43:43.:43:50.

doing a great job here of getting amongst the Kenyans and the weaker

:43:51.:43:56.

of the three, Kipkemoi, is showing that she has got something here,

:43:57.:44:02.

with less than 600 to go. A variety of techniques in the water jump, and

:44:03.:44:10.

Heiner was the most effective. Kipkemoi, the weakest of the three

:44:11.:44:13.

Kenyans in terms of her personal best time, instructing off the back

:44:14.:44:25.

but Cheywa, now hitting the front. She will try to attack and lead

:44:26.:44:31.

here. Heiner of Australia, running powerfully in second. That's a

:44:32.:44:37.

really decent performance in that second place by the other Kenyan.

:44:38.:44:43.

Medals, still not settled here. Kirui hits the front now, a

:44:44.:44:47.

resurgent Kipkemoi trying to go with her team-mates, the defending

:44:48.:44:53.

champion moves back onto the shoulder of Kirui, the Australian

:44:54.:44:59.

athletes still have a chance. With 200 to go, the defending champion

:45:00.:45:00.

moves ahead with Kirui. to go. The Gold medal is to be

:45:01.:45:18.

decided between the defending champion and Kirui. Cheywa moves out

:45:19.:45:26.

wide. Kirui tries to kick hard on the inside. Kirui kicks away. Gold

:45:27.:45:35.

for Kirui. Kipkemoi just holds of the Australian. And Lady Makro with

:45:36.:45:42.

a resurgent Rachel Bamford of England behind her -- a Liz

:45:43.:45:48.

McColgan. Another big personal best, congratulations. -- Lady Makro. A

:45:49.:45:59.

brave front given the season she has had. Never able to come to be used

:46:00.:46:03.

championships in the shape she would have liked to contest. The winning

:46:04.:46:09.

time is around 9.30. That is a race I am sure she would think she will

:46:10.:46:14.

one day be able to run that time, but not today. One, two and three

:46:15.:46:23.

for Kenyan -- Kenya. And a brave effort by Australia. A difficult

:46:24.:46:28.

time for McColgan but she acquitted herself well. That is a time she can

:46:29.:46:44.

approach. She will think, if I had had a chance, I could be amongst it.

:46:45.:46:49.

So the champion was beaten by her team-mate. Those are the three

:46:50.:46:55.

Kenyans. As we expected. Not the result we expected. That is the

:46:56.:47:08.

result. The Australian first. A favourite second. The reigning

:47:09.:47:21.

champion. World Champion last year at the injury has hampered her. But

:47:22.:47:27.

Cheywa is out to win this. Look how smoothly Kirui runs past her. Good

:47:28.:47:32.

acceleration. A good hurdle on the back straight by career. Cheywa is

:47:33.:47:38.

working hard to defend that title. The three Kenyans are racing and

:47:39.:47:42.

pulling away. But a brave effort from the two Australians. Another

:47:43.:47:50.

affect -- attempt by the Australian. Watch the water jump and the

:47:51.:47:55.

techniques. Look how they literally split the field. This is Kirui.

:47:56.:48:02.

Cheywa on the outside. A bit of a slip from Kipkemoi. The Australian

:48:03.:48:09.

under pressure now. What a battle! The two Kenya is, the defending

:48:10.:48:12.

champion on the outside hits the front and tries to what -- to run

:48:13.:48:20.

away. -- the two Kenyans. Kirui on the inside it's the World Champion,

:48:21.:48:25.

another Gold medal for Kenya. -- beats. The defending champion came

:48:26.:48:30.

here and she gave it her best shot which he was not good enough today.

:48:31.:48:34.

-- but she was not. I wonder how that experience was,

:48:35.:48:48.

this was a massive part of your year and you performed admirably. At the

:48:49.:48:53.

start of the year, I did not think I would be racing. I have had one will

:48:54.:48:58.

-- one illness after another. I am racing, fit and healthy, I could not

:48:59.:49:05.

be happier to be here. My mum and dad are in the stadium and they will

:49:06.:49:08.

be proud of me and the fact I have made it. It was not as good as what

:49:09.:49:12.

I would have liked tonight that it is still the quickest I have run all

:49:13.:49:16.

year. It is definitely an improvement, maybe just I have run

:49:17.:49:21.

out of time for this championship. Rachel, how was it for you? Amazing,

:49:22.:49:27.

I cannot put it into words. What a crowd! Uke -- you have, in strides,

:49:28.:49:37.

congratulations to you both. --, and in strides. -- you have come on in

:49:38.:49:47.

strides. That is Laura Weightman of England.

:49:48.:49:52.

And only one person we need to speak to, Steve Cram. Have you recovered?

:49:53.:50:01.

Sorry! I was trying to watch Laura. Her mum and dad were here, they have

:50:02.:50:06.

run away. It was great last night and Laura did incredibly well. We

:50:07.:50:13.

are so proud of her, as is Northumberland. And everybody who

:50:14.:50:17.

has worked with her. Andy Henderson, he has helped with her conditioning.

:50:18.:50:24.

And her physiotherapist. There is always a team of people behind any

:50:25.:50:29.

athlete and her mother and father and family who are so proud of her.

:50:30.:50:33.

She did a great race last night and is rewarded with the silver medal.

:50:34.:50:38.

She had a great lap of honour last night. I will take her back to the

:50:39.:50:56.

hotel and by her a burger tonight! The Gold medal once again going to

:50:57.:50:58.

that great African running nation. Steve, I have heard you talking in

:50:59.:51:58.

the last 24 hours about the plan you put in place with Laura and the

:51:59.:52:05.

strategy. How she was to cope with that. It is one thing telling an

:52:06.:52:09.

athlete that but delivering it must be very satisfying as a coach

:52:10.:52:15.

because she raised with great intelligence last night. She did and

:52:16.:52:20.

I was teasing Jonathan and saying we like to say that 1,500 metre runner

:52:21.:52:25.

is the most intelligent. It is not one plan, you need an awareness of

:52:26.:52:30.

what might happen. If you go hard from the beginning, what do you do?

:52:31.:52:35.

The Kenyans might go slow, what do? We talked a lot about 500m to go, if

:52:36.:52:42.

nothing has happened, you go. Have a go. If you feel like it, though to

:52:43.:52:51.

the front. -- go to the front. Medals won and lost high temps of a

:52:52.:53:00.

second. She saw an opportunity. -- by temps. It was a case of being

:53:01.:53:06.

strong. She followed Kibiegon around and was rewarded with the silver

:53:07.:53:11.

medal. So much progress in the two years since we saw her in the London

:53:12.:53:16.

Olympics. How much further can you go in the next two years to

:53:17.:53:19.

translate these medals and the global stage? The first time you

:53:20.:53:25.

have a chance at the major championships, you learn a lot of.

:53:26.:53:31.

She has got stronger. -- you learn a lot. She got injured at the trials

:53:32.:53:37.

last year. She is a really strong girl mentally. That gives you a lot

:53:38.:53:43.

to work with because she can train hard, a lot of people can train

:53:44.:53:48.

hard, it is translating that into this arena. Standing on the start

:53:49.:53:52.

line and thinking you can do it. This is a tough event. The standard

:53:53.:53:57.

is high in the world and if she wants to continue to be competitive

:53:58.:54:01.

in finals, she will have to keep training harder and getting better.

:54:02.:54:05.

We can do that bit but it is up to her in the arena and she showed

:54:06.:54:09.

everybody watching that she can do that when it matters.

:54:10.:54:15.

Congratulations again. I think she got a lot of fans last night. She

:54:16.:54:20.

has such a brave approach to the race and that sheer determination.

:54:21.:54:22.

Let's remind ourselves how she did it.

:54:23.:54:26.

12 women, two world-class Kenyans, they are the favourites. Can anybody

:54:27.:54:37.

else get among them? The two Kenyans in front. Kibiegon. There is a

:54:38.:54:41.

struggle behind them. Hannah England. Kibiegon kicking from the

:54:42.:54:50.

front. Can they chased them down? Canada is coming through. Kibiegon

:54:51.:54:57.

takes the Gold. Laura Weightman the silver. The Canadian,

:54:58.:55:03.

congratulations. She gets the bronze. What a performance and what

:55:04.:55:07.

a delightful Laura Weightman! Yet another silver for England at

:55:08.:55:15.

Hampden Park, will they turn those into Gold medals tonight? Greg

:55:16.:55:20.

Rutherford could do that, he has just had his fourth jump. Over to

:55:21.:55:23.

Steve Backley. And you, and Greg has taken control

:55:24.:55:33.

of this. He led from the start -- thank you. Visser as to question and

:55:34.:55:40.

he responded. This is the fourth round. -- he asked a question. This

:55:41.:55:50.

was a better job. 8.30. But it was a red flag. Look at how close this is.

:55:51.:55:58.

That is the cross, it will not be measured. That is a shame because

:55:59.:56:02.

that may have put the competition out of reach of the rest of the

:56:03.:56:08.

Commonwealth athletes. Excellent execution. He is the best on the

:56:09.:56:14.

runway. -2 centimetres, that is so close. He is the best technician and

:56:15.:56:24.

as a result, he is in the lead. Two more to go, we will keep you

:56:25.:56:28.

up-to-date with that and the men's High Jump. But back to Gary.

:56:29.:56:37.

A change of direction now. Gymnastics. Always great. Coming up

:56:38.:56:44.

live later, the conclusion of the women's all-round final. But the

:56:45.:56:48.

men's individual title has been decided in spectacular style.

:56:49.:56:54.

The men's individual all-round final.

:56:55.:57:02.

To the gymnasts, he has been tipped as the champion already. Starting

:57:03.:57:12.

his all-round competition in exactly the way he would have wanted. They

:57:13.:57:17.

call the pommelhorse the great leveller, to him, it is just a piece

:57:18.:57:24.

of apparatus. World class from Daniel Keatings, look at the smile!

:57:25.:57:32.

He can swing, this young man. He is looking unaffected by everything

:57:33.:57:35.

going on around him. The leader so far, Max Whitlock. And how important

:57:36.:57:43.

is this fault for Scotland's Daniel Keatings? The medal could well

:57:44.:58:00.

within reach. -- the medal could well be within reach. He really is

:58:01.:58:07.

focused. He is looking so classy. It could not have been any better! Yes!

:58:08.:58:20.

He is absolutely nailing all six pieces of apparatus. And he has just

:58:21.:58:28.

landed on a Gold medal. Some goals to England's Max

:58:29.:58:38.

Whitlock, silver for Dan Keating is and bronze denial Wilson -- and

:58:39.:58:45.

bronze goes to Nile Wilson. -- so the Gold goes to. Beth Tweddle joins

:58:46.:58:52.

us, along with matt baker. That was a spectacular competition, and Max

:58:53.:58:58.

Whitlock is a star! He is world-class. You put in a score of

:58:59.:59:05.

over 90, that is a very exclusive club on the world stage -- he put

:59:06.:59:10.

in. I am still reeling from this. It was just sensational. It was such an

:59:11.:59:16.

amazing atmosphere. Max had all the pressure but he withheld it and he

:59:17.:59:23.

just commanded from the beginning. Daniel Keatings, it was so important

:59:24.:59:28.

to come and to prove himself. He has had so many important injuries and

:59:29.:59:35.

this was important for him and he just delivered. -- serious injuries.

:59:36.:59:41.

Especially as he was left out for the Olympics. This map X Whitlock

:59:42.:59:52.

getting to -- is Max Whitlock a challenger in the World

:59:53.:59:55.

Championships? Very much so, he has worked so hard. A lot of this award

:59:56.:00:00.

have rested on their laurels. But Max is only 20 -- on what of the

:00:01.:00:09.

squad. He has worked his way up. He is still a bit of the top pace but

:00:10.:00:16.

at 21, he has got a future ahead of him.

:00:17.:00:33.

They know in the back of their minds, they have tried a lot of new

:00:34.:00:42.

stuff in preparation for the World Championships and then are looking

:00:43.:00:48.

ahead to reopen in 2016. The women are in action soon, can they emulate

:00:49.:00:56.

the man? I think they can. How top qualifier will be going out there.

:00:57.:00:59.

I'm not sure she will feel the pressure. Then you have Hannah

:01:00.:01:05.

Whelan who has done so many all-around competitions. And the

:01:06.:01:18.

Ruby Harold. You have seen your legacy, they must all be inspired by

:01:19.:01:25.

you. The generation before me started to make finals, I then got a

:01:26.:01:28.

medal and showed the younger generation that with a lot of hard

:01:29.:01:32.

work and determination and focus, you can achieve it, now they are

:01:33.:01:40.

taking it on. It's very important in the sport, when you have people

:01:41.:01:44.

being successful, youngsters want to go out there and be like them. No

:01:45.:01:50.

doubt about it. You have so many world finalists, Olympic medallists

:01:51.:01:54.

in that British team, to have them around you, the older lads are

:01:55.:01:59.

getting involved in the coaching, so when I tell you that the juniors,

:02:00.:02:03.

the quality of those lads, it's out of this world. Wilson is a good

:02:04.:02:08.

example of that, he has been up in the senior ranks for a couple of

:02:09.:02:14.

weeks. He posted a near 87 in qualifying. It is just so exciting.

:02:15.:02:22.

I cannot wait for the next few years. We are looking forward to

:02:23.:02:28.

going back to you later, thank you both for now. We will have the last

:02:29.:02:36.

two apparatus at around 9:15 p.m.. It begins on BBC Three at about 815.

:02:37.:02:42.

Here are some headlines from day seven.

:02:43.:02:51.

Nicola Adams guaranteed herself a medal by easing into the women's

:02:52.:02:54.

flyweight semifinal. Flyweight Michaela Walsh will also

:02:55.:03:13.

be in the semifinals of. Her opponent's day job was a prosecutor.

:03:14.:03:20.

It was a closer affair for her team-mate. But the Northern Ireland

:03:21.:03:30.

show fighter found her way through. She has also secured a medal.

:03:31.:03:39.

Staying with boxing, Paddy Barnes was fighting a Papua New Guinean

:03:40.:03:40.

opponent. Pretty impressive opening round, he

:03:41.:03:54.

has produced all the way through this particular tournament.

:03:55.:04:03.

First Irish boxer to win medals at successive Olympics, aiming to be

:04:04.:04:08.

the first Northern Ireland boxer to win successive golds. If he gets

:04:09.:04:15.

through, he would be the fifth Northern for the semifinals. Four

:04:16.:04:23.

years ago, Northern Ireland ended up with five medals, three gold medal

:04:24.:04:27.

is and two silvers. Would you bet against gold here? If you watch him,

:04:28.:04:39.

there is more holes in his opponent's guard. With Barnes, he's

:04:40.:04:41.

difficult to get through. There are a few openings for Barnes

:04:42.:04:53.

to land, and land he does on the inside there. He has got good

:04:54.:05:01.

timing. He's just a little bit leaky with the god, this man in red.

:05:02.:05:06.

Having a bit more success there in the second round, but Barnes getting

:05:07.:05:13.

back. Seems to have all the time in the world, Paddy Barnes. He just

:05:14.:05:20.

eases out of the way. Barnes for books like this all day long,

:05:21.:05:24.

especially if the southpaw doesn't want to move. You will find the gaps

:05:25.:05:29.

in his guard. He is working very well with that left up to the body.

:05:30.:05:42.

A great right-hander to the head, he has really hurt him. That has got to

:05:43.:05:49.

be account. We were just talking about how good his left to the body

:05:50.:05:54.

was. What short, little, destructive right hand he produced. And another

:05:55.:06:04.

one. This could well be stopped. Paddy Barnes stopped his first

:06:05.:06:08.

opponent in the opening round. He is threatening to do it earlier here. I

:06:09.:06:15.

am sure one more will call the end of it. There is still time. Bit of

:06:16.:06:29.

frustration there from Barnes, wants to get on with it. His change of

:06:30.:06:36.

tactic to stand and trade with Barnes is an awful one. Keama keeps

:06:37.:06:44.

getting caught. Hattie got one more to settle it completely? He has got

:06:45.:06:48.

him again with the right hand. He may just survive, Keama. Barnes has

:06:49.:06:54.

put in a blistering third minute of this round. Terrific little display

:06:55.:07:05.

there from Barnes. Just waiting for his opportunities and taking them.

:07:06.:07:08.

Caught his opportunities and taking them. Court the combinations were

:07:09.:07:13.

good. They will be more than pleased in his corner. This man will find

:07:14.:07:18.

his way through, he waits, he is patient. What a belting shop that

:07:19.:07:24.

was. It started the ball rolling. Then he will work to the body. This

:07:25.:07:34.

is right at the end of the round, five, six, seven shots going

:07:35.:07:41.

through. A good display from Barnes. Doesn't get any better than those

:07:42.:07:49.

scores. Such was Barnes's superiority, there was no option.

:07:50.:07:55.

Third and final round. The defending gold wedding list from Delhi four

:07:56.:07:58.

years ago in this light flyweight division, Paddy Barnes has boxed

:07:59.:08:07.

from September in the higher division, the 52 kilograms

:08:08.:08:11.

division, was rated number three in the flyweight division in the

:08:12.:08:14.

world, he is now back to the weight he enjoys the most. Barnes, in blue,

:08:15.:08:23.

has been the better boxer all the way against the man who had his

:08:24.:08:27.

moments in the second round, Charles Keama from Papua New Guinea. What a

:08:28.:08:36.

right-hander! Barnes raises his hand aloft. I don't know that he is badly

:08:37.:08:42.

hurt. The referee has the look in his eyes. Back they come again. I

:08:43.:08:49.

think if Barnes does it again, he will have to stop it. That is

:08:50.:08:53.

exactly what happened to his first opponent. It's the quality and the

:08:54.:09:02.

accuracy of the shots. Lots of blows coming in from Keama but none of

:09:03.:09:05.

them hitting the target. Whereas Barnes waits for his opportunity,

:09:06.:09:10.

and then he strikes. Gets him again with the right hand. Keama took that

:09:11.:09:17.

one well, he has taken them all well. The very tired boxer from

:09:18.:09:28.

Papua New Guinea. Into the second half of this third and last round,

:09:29.:09:35.

it has been Barnes all the way. 10-9 all the judges in the first, 10-8

:09:36.:09:42.

all the judges in the second. Keama chose the wrong tactics, I think.

:09:43.:09:49.

The referee is going to stop it soon. He is getting more and more

:09:50.:09:57.

tired. Andy has stopped. -- and he has stopped it.

:09:58.:10:07.

beat. Very economical in his style, destructive and clever punching all

:10:08.:10:15.

the way through. Charles Keama, who came through against a boxer from

:10:16.:10:19.

Botswana, has been simply outclassed by Paddy Barnes who is in sparkling

:10:20.:10:24.

form. It's the precision of his work. Very quick, accurate, he has

:10:25.:10:33.

got power. His opponent got more and more tired and the gaps started to

:10:34.:10:35.

appear. Punch perfect. I think we can describe that as

:10:36.:10:48.

emphatic! So he's guaranteed bronze and could well win Northern

:10:49.:10:51.

Ireland's first win of the games. Boxing is one of the sports that

:10:52.:10:56.

gives double medals for third place, there are all sorts of numbers and

:10:57.:10:59.

statistics but my favourite is the games Village housekeeping staff

:11:00.:11:05.

expect to change 3600 bed sheets every day. A lot of male athletes

:11:06.:11:11.

will be astonished to hear that the sheet can be changed every day!

:11:12.:11:33.

Nobody is catching the world champion! Kirani James is going to

:11:34.:11:47.

take Olympic gold! Total dominance. That is coming up at 8:30 p.m.. Very

:11:48.:11:58.

soon, though, the final act, the seventh event of the heptathlon.

:11:59.:12:02.

Let's remind you how it has gone. Already you see, moving away from

:12:03.:12:27.

the rest, Zelinka. The time for Zelinka, 12.4.

:12:28.:12:33.

The initial athletes know that the bronze medal is up for grabs. -- the

:12:34.:12:37.

English athletes. Theisen-Eaton, huge favourite to

:12:38.:12:47.

take the title here. Good clearance. The two Canadians, way out in front.

:12:48.:13:26.

The three English athletes try and get amongst it, last event of day

:13:27.:13:27.

one in the heptathlon. That is a very impressive run from

:13:28.:13:33.

Theisen-Eaton. events down, the seventh is upon us,

:13:34.:14:22.

it is the 800 Metres. This is the woman who is going to

:14:23.:14:33.

win gold barring a miracle in the 800 Metres from someone else.

:14:34.:14:37.

Theisen-Eaton has dominated from start to finish. She leads by a

:14:38.:14:43.

handsome margin and she's a very good 800 Metres runner. Jessica

:14:44.:14:51.

Taylor, in bronze medal position, although Slack could get there if

:14:52.:14:52.

she beats by five seconds or more. Sometimes, personal bests for

:14:53.:15:07.

heptathlon in the contributors can live a bit. But we know

:15:08.:15:10.

Theisen-Eaton is going to win and Zelinka is going to get the sober.

:15:11.:15:28.

We knew the Canadians would run away with this. The surprise package has

:15:29.:15:38.

been Jessica Taylor, of England. This is the seventh event, the 800m.

:15:39.:15:46.

with this. The surprise package has been Jessica Taylor, of Jessica

:15:47.:15:48.

Taylor, if you had told her at the start of this year that she would be

:15:49.:15:49.

lining up ready to run the 800m for it runs medal, she would not have

:15:50.:15:51.

believed you because she has improved. Jessica Taylor to the left

:15:52.:15:56.

of the screen. And this is a wonderful informants. --

:15:57.:16:04.

performance. She has been horrific. The Canadians have set the pace,

:16:05.:16:10.

very talented 800-metre runners. All Jessica Taylor has to do is not let

:16:11.:16:15.

the Jamaican in front of her get too far in front. Five seconds is a

:16:16.:16:24.

decent space so she is in the bronze medal position at the moment. Slack

:16:25.:16:31.

opening the gap a little. That is the gap and that is not bigger --

:16:32.:16:39.

big enough at the moment to close the gap. Tappin Stan well of

:16:40.:16:51.

Australia needs only eight seconds -- Stan well. This is going to be

:16:52.:16:58.

tight. Jessica Tappin get the roles of the crowd. Theisen-Eaton says,

:16:59.:17:05.

this victory is mine. Ash the roar of the crowd. She takes the overall

:17:06.:17:10.

victory. Jessica Taylor will get there, she will get the bronze

:17:11.:17:15.

medal. Slack crosses now. Jessica Taylor collapses in a heat but the

:17:16.:17:20.

Gold belongs to this woman from start to finish as her compatriot

:17:21.:17:27.

Damian Warner did in the decathlon, Canada have ruled in the

:17:28.:17:32.

Commonwealth Games in these events. England have a bronze medal. But the

:17:33.:17:44.

Gold goes to Theisen-Eaton. We have talked about the legacy of different

:17:45.:17:48.

athletes and in the wake of Denise Lewis, Gold medallist in this event,

:17:49.:17:54.

we have seen Jessica Ennis, and Katrina Johnson-Thompson.

:17:55.:17:58.

Disappointed, it you cannot help thinking you would have loved her to

:17:59.:18:05.

run away with victory. And Morgan Lake in the world juniors. But

:18:06.:18:09.

congratulations to Jessica Taylor for taking the bronze. I am sure it

:18:10.:18:16.

would have been a good contest with Katarina Johnson-Thompson. Jessica

:18:17.:18:29.

Zelinka takes the silver medal in Jessica Taylor the bronze medal. --

:18:30.:18:38.

and Jessica Taylor. And it helps to be called Jessica if

:18:39.:18:42.

you want to be successful in the heptathlon! But she is Theisen-Eaton

:18:43.:18:46.

and she has Gold at last. Denise Lewis, a silver-medallist indoors

:18:47.:18:52.

and outdoors in the world, which she has got a Gold medal today. It would

:18:53.:18:57.

have been a fantastic contest with Katarina Johnson-Thompson which you

:18:58.:19:01.

can only perform your best across those seven disciplines -- at. You

:19:02.:19:07.

have to keep away from anybody with designs on your Gold. Going into a

:19:08.:19:11.

competition as favourite does not help when you would have loved that

:19:12.:19:18.

battle. We spoke to her husband, the world-record holder for the

:19:19.:19:24.

decathlon, and he said she was gutted when Johnson-Thompson was not

:19:25.:19:28.

able to compete. It has been hard, she has led from start to finish.

:19:29.:19:33.

She has had ups and downs but she has been in control. It takes a

:19:34.:19:40.

great mindset to stay focused. The High Jump in particular was

:19:41.:19:43.

challenging because she had to wait over an hour before she started.

:19:44.:19:47.

Which she is delighted. The first global Gold medal which she craved,

:19:48.:19:54.

it is fantastic. I am delighted for the English girls, they have done

:19:55.:19:59.

brilliantly. Getting the opportunity to be here and to experience this

:20:00.:20:03.

crowd. That personal best by Jessica Taylor to get that runs medal is

:20:04.:20:11.

fantastic. Jessica Taylor of sale, and when you are in such a rich vein

:20:12.:20:15.

of form in the heptathlon as Britain has got at the moment, Louise Hazel

:20:16.:20:23.

one of the Gold a couple of years ago and there are so many girls

:20:24.:20:30.

ahead of her now. It is fantastic to see what has come behind. And now we

:20:31.:20:36.

have another medallist, Michael. Yes, and that is what happens when

:20:37.:20:42.

you have somebody like Denise who sets the stage and young girls wants

:20:43.:20:50.

to be like her. Like we have with the Jamaicans in the sprint. We have

:20:51.:20:54.

Morgan Lake, the World Junior champion as well. And we hope to see

:20:55.:20:59.

Johnson-Thompson competing in the Long Jump in Z?rich in the world --

:21:00.:21:05.

in the European Championships. It is a gruelling two days. We can head

:21:06.:21:10.

over to the Long Jump to see how that is going for Greg Rutherford.

:21:11.:21:16.

Just one man is standing between Greg Rutherford taking a Long Jump

:21:17.:21:26.

Gold. A Commonwealth Gold to add to his Olympic Gold should this man not

:21:27.:21:36.

jump beyond his best so far. That is below, he knows that is below. It is

:21:37.:21:45.

below Greg Rutherford's jump. It will be measured. If it is below

:21:46.:21:49.

8.20, Greg Rutherford is the Commonwealth champion. That is

:21:50.:21:57.

anxious. Yes! That is a celebration for Visser, he's pleased with a

:21:58.:22:03.

silver medal. But somewhere, Greg Rutherford, the penny will have

:22:04.:22:10.

dropped. There he is! He is an outdoor she is allowed another jump.

:22:11.:22:19.

-- he is allowed another jump. What that must mean after taking the

:22:20.:22:29.

Olympic title and having a bit of a job -- dodgy 2013, with injury. To

:22:30.:22:36.

take the Commonwealth title two years later, well done, Greg. Well

:22:37.:22:47.

done to Greg Rutherford, a big smile from Denise Lewis. That pressure for

:22:48.:22:54.

him to back up Olympic Gold and to prove the British record he set this

:22:55.:22:59.

year, that he is definitely the number one and he will take that

:23:00.:23:07.

forward to the next cycle. Olympic Gold is what we crave and he has got

:23:08.:23:11.

that which you can see what this medal means to him. I thought he was

:23:12.:23:15.

going to have a moment, and out test of emotion. I think it is testament

:23:16.:23:25.

to his character. -- an outburst of emotion. He has changed his training

:23:26.:23:30.

base and his coach. Getting his life back on track, taking ownership of

:23:31.:23:37.

his athletics career. He did not even jump two weeks ago because of

:23:38.:23:43.

an injury and it gave us an indication that he was not prepared

:23:44.:23:46.

to risk anything because this was his aim, Paula, this medal and this

:23:47.:23:52.

moment. I met him on a flight back from the diamond league in Glasgow

:23:53.:23:58.

and he said the injury he had, it was not too bad because he had it

:23:59.:24:03.

ten days before he jumped the British record this year. He said

:24:04.:24:10.

things were still on track for the Commonwealth Games and that was his

:24:11.:24:14.

aim and everything he was focusing towards. He has almost had to manage

:24:15.:24:18.

his body. He has a lot of niggles. It is learning how to do it and went

:24:19.:24:22.

to do it and taking calculated risks. Sometimes it upsets people we

:24:23.:24:27.

have to be the master of our own destiny. We will hear from Greg

:24:28.:24:32.

Rutherford, Commonwealth champion, very soon. The men's 400m final is

:24:33.:24:40.

next on the track. And if you want to know how to run a perfect 400m,

:24:41.:24:44.

you are in luck, we have the world-record holder!

:24:45.:24:52.

This is the 400m at the race can be won or lost on here. -- bot. Seven

:24:53.:25:02.

other athletes in this small space before the race. I actually enjoyed

:25:03.:25:08.

this, it is the one thing I miss about competing because this was the

:25:09.:25:12.

intense time when I knew in most cases I could win the race but I did

:25:13.:25:16.

not know if I was going to win and I knew I was competing against other

:25:17.:25:20.

people who were going to lose it right here. You might think with the

:25:21.:25:28.

400m because it is a long is rent that the start is not as important

:25:29.:25:33.

but it is just as important here as it would be in 200 m -- a long

:25:34.:25:39.

sprint. You have to react to the garden and executed to perfection.

:25:40.:25:45.

50 metres later, you are still accelerating and you have to get up

:25:46.:25:49.

to pace as quickly as possible. That is dauntingly knowing you have

:25:50.:25:54.

400m. When I broke the world-record in the 400m, this was key to that

:25:55.:26:01.

record. At this point, it you can start to look at the other athletes

:26:02.:26:07.

and you can see your position she can start. You have not slowed down

:26:08.:26:12.

but you relax now. -- you can start. 150 metres, you have to start to

:26:13.:26:18.

make decisions based on what your competition is doing. It pays to

:26:19.:26:26.

know your competitors and that helps you make a better decision. When

:26:27.:26:29.

Kirani James lost the World Championship, this was critical. He

:26:30.:26:35.

saw what his opponent was doing and he made an adjustment. Adjustments

:26:36.:26:42.

are sometimes necessary but you have to make the right one. You are

:26:43.:26:47.

starting to give a bit more effort as you are getting into this 200 m

:26:48.:26:54.

own. You cannot just turn on the turbo boost. -- 200 m zone. You have

:26:55.:27:01.

to give more effort. With every step, you need to know how much

:27:02.:27:04.

further you have to go until the finish line as well as what you have

:27:05.:27:11.

got left to get to it. 50 metres from the finish, down the home

:27:12.:27:16.

stretch, if you have got it right to this point, and you are not going to

:27:17.:27:22.

be accelerating here, you are trying to hold form and technique and hope

:27:23.:27:26.

somebody in front of you if anybody is in front, that they are

:27:27.:27:32.

decelerating quicker than you. I know the 400m looks very simple but

:27:33.:27:39.

it is extremely complex, a lot going on in every athlete's mind for the

:27:40.:27:43.

entire 400m, and we will see that player tonight.

:27:44.:27:49.

So that is how you do it. You teased us, you put on your trainers and I

:27:50.:27:55.

thought we would see you do a quick lap. But that information is going

:27:56.:28:01.

round in the head of Kirani James. He has got to execute this race well

:28:02.:28:06.

because when it came to the big stage last year in Moscow, he let

:28:07.:28:10.

himself down. Absolutely, that is what is going on in his head. He is

:28:11.:28:16.

running that race in his mind now and he is thinking what he needs to

:28:17.:28:20.

do, the areas he has made mistakes before, and how he is going to

:28:21.:28:25.

handle that. He is not thinking about competition, hopefully. I

:28:26.:28:30.

think given the fact he is in lane six, the comparison to last year

:28:31.:28:34.

when he threw it away and made the critical mistake was that he was

:28:35.:28:41.

inside his main competitor. He was in lane five and Merrick was in

:28:42.:28:47.

sixth. Tonight, Kirani James is in six -- in six. Rooney will be his

:28:48.:28:54.

main competitor and Gordon, from Trinidad Tobago. This is a good

:28:55.:29:00.

position for him. His coach would have been delighted when he saw the

:29:01.:29:05.

draw. He knows Kirani James will run his own race. He has run 43.7 this

:29:06.:29:11.

year, a personal best. Nobody is close to that this year and he has

:29:12.:29:17.

been healthy so he just has to execute his race the way he has done

:29:18.:29:25.

it all season. How can Martin Ren?e -- Martyn Rooney use Kirani James?

:29:26.:29:30.

He should use Kirani James, he is in a great position down that

:29:31.:29:34.

backstretch and it is critical for Martyn Rooney. He can relax a lot

:29:35.:29:39.

better having a main competitor on his outside. Relaxation is key. What

:29:40.:29:45.

we saw him do the other night in the semifinal is to relax at one point

:29:46.:29:51.

in the race and tonight he can relax down the backstretch. It gives him

:29:52.:29:57.

the opportunity to slingshot himself around the bend and position himself

:29:58.:30:00.

where he wants to be and bring it home. There will be huge support for

:30:01.:30:06.

him and for Kirani James, here is Steve Cram.

:30:07.:30:16.

title is introduced to the crowd. Who can even get close? Will it be

:30:17.:30:24.

Martyn Rooney. The Commonwealth Games in Melbourne in 2006 was when

:30:25.:30:29.

this man came to prominence for the first time. He ran his personal best

:30:30.:30:33.

at the Olympic Games in 2008 and since then it has been a struggle to

:30:34.:30:39.

fulfil his potential. Van Niekerk actually ran in the 200 Metres heats

:30:40.:30:43.

this morning, he's also going in that event. A bit of a surprise

:30:44.:30:49.

seeing as he has a decent chance in this final. Bronze-medallist from

:30:50.:30:54.

the Olympic Games in London, Lalonde Gordon. Three men from that country.

:30:55.:31:05.

Renny Quow in Lane 2. This man picked up a bronze medal in 2009

:31:06.:31:15.

when he burst onto the scene. Chris Brown made it to the final but

:31:16.:31:18.

sadly, the veteran is not able to start. Right on the outside,

:31:19.:31:24.

Williams of the Bahamas. So for Kirani James, 2011, the world

:31:25.:31:39.

champion, 2012 the Olympic champion, now in 2014 attempting to become the

:31:40.:31:49.

Commonwealth champion. Can Martyn Rooney finally fulfil some of that

:31:50.:31:53.

huge potential he has? Can follow this man to a medal? Kirani James is

:31:54.:32:02.

expected to win this party now has two deliver. Van Niekerk of South

:32:03.:32:08.

Africa started very quickly. He may well pay for that. Rooney has to be

:32:09.:32:16.

patient. Lalonde Gordon will finish quickly, but Rooney is well out of

:32:17.:32:21.

this at the moment. Van Niekerk of South Africa, putting Kirani James

:32:22.:32:25.

under some pressure, will he be able to last it with the big man? Kirani

:32:26.:32:30.

James and van Niekerk, stride by stride down the home straight.

:32:31.:32:34.

Lalonde Gordon finishing very quickly. Van Niekerk starting to

:32:35.:32:38.

fade and Rooney will finish quick but it won't be good enough. Kirani

:32:39.:32:42.

James takes the gold medal, new games record. The gold in the title,

:32:43.:32:50.

once more go to Kirani James, it was a brave effort by then the Kirk to

:32:51.:32:56.

try and stay with him. -- van Niekerk. But this man has so much

:32:57.:33:05.

ability. At the age of 14 he ran a world best, at the age of 15 he ran

:33:06.:33:09.

a world best, he continued to improve. He won the world title in

:33:10.:33:17.

2011. The Olympics, he was superb. After a difficult 2013, he has

:33:18.:33:24.

bounced back. Top of the world again. Kirani James. That was hard,

:33:25.:33:31.

I wonder what he was thinking when this young man was right inside him,

:33:32.:33:35.

he gave LaShawn Merritt scare earlier

:33:36.:33:37.

this young man was right inside him, he gave LaShawn Merritt scare in the

:33:38.:33:41.

season and he gave Kirani James a bit of a scare to. Martyn Rooney did

:33:42.:33:48.

his best, I am not sure he got into the race in the early stages, when

:33:49.:33:53.

van Niekerk came storming past him, it was difficult. He tried to stay

:33:54.:33:58.

patient but Gordon finished quickly and took the bronze medal.

:33:59.:34:09.

Try once more in the grenade in flight. -- draped once more in the

:34:10.:34:23.

grenade in flag. I just wonder what Michael thought of that, whether you

:34:24.:34:31.

were thinking, is van Niekerk going to give him something to think

:34:32.:34:36.

about? It looked like he would last out but surely he went too hard.

:34:37.:34:43.

Yes, I'm not sure, I was watching the 200 Metres this morning and saw

:34:44.:34:50.

van Niekerk running in the preliminaries, so that is quite a

:34:51.:34:53.

feat, to run into those in the morning and then run the 400 final,

:34:54.:34:57.

but I thought this race was faster than it was. I thought Rooney was a

:34:58.:35:03.

good position, I thought here he needs to pick it up and I wondering

:35:04.:35:08.

if James and van Niekerk would hold their position, but it wasn't as

:35:09.:35:14.

fast as it looks. Kirani James took control from the beginning, very

:35:15.:35:18.

impressive by van Niekerk, staying with him, I wonder if he is

:35:19.:35:22.

thinking, maybe it wasn't such a good idea to run the 200

:35:23.:35:27.

preliminaries this morning, it had to have taken a little bit out of

:35:28.:35:31.

him tonight which may have been enough to stay with Kirani James and

:35:32.:35:36.

run a personal best and take the gold medal. James got a very quick

:35:37.:35:48.

start. Then you can relax on the back stretch, he gets into his

:35:49.:35:53.

relaxation bit here the long stride, it becomes a real advantage for an

:35:54.:35:58.

athlete in the 400 Metres because he is covering more ground than

:35:59.:36:04.

everyone else. Now he starts to put in more effort, he still doesn't

:36:05.:36:07.

know where the guys are, it is nowhere Rooney is, with 120 litres

:36:08.:36:17.

to go -- metres to go, he knows where van Niekerk is, but now you

:36:18.:36:24.

see the symmetry, left to right. His torso is not moving around a lot,

:36:25.:36:28.

that's what you want and that's what he has got to do to get his

:36:29.:36:30.

that's what you want and that's what he has got to do to get times down.

:36:31.:36:30.

He ran a personal best this year, he has got to do to get times down.

:36:31.:36:32.

He ran a personal best this 43.7. He he has got to do to get times down.

:36:33.:36:38.

still has a bright future, world Champion, Olympic champion,

:36:39.:36:42.

Commonwealth champion, I'm sure the world record will be next for him.

:36:43.:36:47.

It was a tough one for Martyn Rooney, he was never in the race.

:36:48.:36:53.

You have to go into it with your own plan, Gordon from Trinidad almost

:36:54.:36:58.

got the silver medal, had to settle for bronze. But back to Rooney, you

:36:59.:37:03.

have to make the decision whether you compete against the other

:37:04.:37:07.

athletes all you stay with your own race plan to stop what he saw the

:37:08.:37:11.

athletes on the back stretch starting to get away from him, you

:37:12.:37:16.

need to make that adjustment and he did not make the adjustment. He

:37:17.:37:21.

thought as I did that they were going too fast, and they would come

:37:22.:37:27.

back to him at some point, that's obviously turned out to be a mistake

:37:28.:37:31.

and it was a costly one for him because this was a great opportunity

:37:32.:37:37.

for him to win a Commonwealth Games medal and get himself back on top

:37:38.:37:43.

and continue the fantastic season he has been having to this point will

:37:44.:38:04.

I am sure Martyn Rooney will be disappointed despite running well.

:38:05.:38:12.

The first time that grenade have won a gold medal.

:38:13.:38:22.

man inside me, Olympic champion in Britain and now Commonwealth

:38:23.:38:31.

champion in Britain. I am just happy for the country, happy will for

:38:32.:38:36.

everyone who is affiliated with us, this win is for everybody back home.

:38:37.:38:43.

He pushed you hard. I glimpsed him, I knew I had to stay composed, make

:38:44.:38:51.

sure, so I try to stay relaxed. I ended up with a great time. You must

:38:52.:38:56.

want to race in Britain all the time! Yes, the crowd is fantastic, I

:38:57.:39:02.

love it here, the crowd really cancel out the

:39:03.:39:02.

love it here, the crowd really cancel weather. It is good to be out

:39:03.:39:10.

here and read front of a crowd like this. You come in as a favourite did

:39:11.:39:17.

you go through the rounds with consummate ease, you deal with us

:39:18.:39:20.

with consummate ease, you are a true gent. Thank you. God placed a lot of

:39:21.:39:28.

great people in my corner to help me with that. Everyday I get coaching

:39:29.:39:33.

in life and I'm happy that coach helps me out, I have grown up

:39:34.:39:38.

friends back home at help me with that. I just have to give thanks.

:39:39.:39:43.

Congratulations. I think he will be everybody's

:39:44.:39:52.

favourite Caribbean sprinter! Loving the crowd here. And loving competing

:39:53.:40:00.

on British soil, very good memories for him, from London and now

:40:01.:40:06.

Glasgow, what a charming man he is. There is already a Kirani James

:40:07.:40:12.

Boulevard back in Grenada. Buildings, airports... ! He's a

:40:13.:40:19.

great young man, I met a few years ago, he is very respectful, focused,

:40:20.:40:23.

works really hard. I'm sure that was a difficult defeat for him last

:40:24.:40:27.

year, he said that, I'm sure this was a bit of indication. A great

:40:28.:40:32.

race, great champion, we have another one to hear from now.

:40:33.:40:38.

Congratulations. I saw you collapse to your knees in delight and relief,

:40:39.:40:45.

all the pressure on you to win it, you have done it! Absolutely. It's

:40:46.:40:51.

never an easy road and after last year, I was never sure if I would be

:40:52.:40:56.

able to carry on jumping. I have come here and come away with another

:40:57.:40:59.

title, it's what it's all about for me. I'm over the moon. A lot of

:41:00.:41:05.

people thought I was a one-hit wonder but I'm here trying to prove

:41:06.:41:09.

I can still do it and I will do it many more times. This place was out

:41:10.:41:15.

of this world tonight, got completely behind us, it really

:41:16.:41:21.

helped. A bit gutted about my fourth round, thought I had a monster there

:41:22.:41:26.

and it was a bit of a foul, but I'm super happy. I'm going to go to the

:41:27.:41:31.

Europeans and try and do it again. It's incredible. I just want to get

:41:32.:41:39.

out there and winning titles stop what is it say about you that you

:41:40.:41:46.

can rice to the vacation time after time? I think which Ball

:41:47.:41:52.

Championships in Britain! I love the big stadiums, the crowds, I enjoy

:41:53.:42:01.

being out there. I found myself smiling I was having fun out there.

:42:02.:42:06.

I felt I could have got a big jump again, but this isn't like the

:42:07.:42:11.

Olympics of two years ago, I still have something to focus on. So I

:42:12.:42:16.

can't kill myself and not be right for that. I love these

:42:17.:42:21.

championships, and I would also love to say, people try and write off the

:42:22.:42:26.

Commonwealth Games and say it's not important, try saying that to anyone

:42:27.:42:31.

who has won here tonight, any athlete who has completed, these are

:42:32.:42:36.

hugely important for all kinds of athletes at all levels, and long may

:42:37.:42:41.

it continue. If we have crowds stadiums and competitions like this,

:42:42.:42:45.

it will continue for a long time. Let me ask you about people writing

:42:46.:42:50.

you off, how much did it get under your skin, do you feel you have

:42:51.:42:57.

something to prove? It's one of those tough ones. People are always

:42:58.:42:59.

going to have things to say about you. The Olympics came as a shock to

:43:00.:43:07.

some people, but I was the only one who wasn't shocked, I had been

:43:08.:43:10.

working so hard, and everything came together. I have been working beyond

:43:11.:43:17.

hard this year, I have had a nice, consistent year and that has shown

:43:18.:43:21.

again today. When you are consistent, you can go out there and

:43:22.:43:26.

win the medals. That's what it's all about. When you get written off and

:43:27.:43:31.

you kill yourself in training, that's the thing, nobody else sees

:43:32.:43:38.

that. But when you come out and win medals, it proves the point. The

:43:39.:43:42.

best answer possible, another gold medal, congratulations.

:43:43.:43:49.

Great words and sentiment about the importance of the Commonwealth Games

:43:50.:43:54.

to him and all the athletes and where it can lead to in their

:43:55.:43:58.

careers, to some it's a stepping stone, for Greg it is cementing what

:43:59.:44:05.

it is in the Olympics. A jump of 8.20, do you think he will have to

:44:06.:44:08.

jump further to get the European Championships? I don't think it

:44:09.:44:14.

matters. He said it all, he has his Olympic title, the British record,

:44:15.:44:19.

we know he wants to jump further but an athlete 's career is defined...

:44:20.:44:26.

There will always be tough competition, it only takes a couple

:44:27.:44:31.

of no jumps and you are under pressure, but people want to collect

:44:32.:44:35.

medals, they want to win time and time again. The pipers, piping them

:44:36.:44:44.

out for this medal ceremony for the Long Jump. Another medal to add to

:44:45.:44:54.

the collection, Michael, at the end if your career when you look back

:44:55.:44:58.

you don't say, I jumped really far that night, you say, these are the

:44:59.:45:06.

medals I wonder. It is about the championship. It is for people who

:45:07.:45:14.

are part of the Commonwealth. I have not heard the ball talking about

:45:15.:45:21.

what the Commonwealth is. I have as to buy every media person, is the

:45:22.:45:28.

Commonwealth relevant? -- people. I have not heard anybody saying, the

:45:29.:45:33.

Commonwealth Games, not that good. It is not a valid situation. The

:45:34.:45:38.

Commonwealth Games has its place but it is a great opportunity for up and

:45:39.:45:42.

coming athletes, which we have seen, make their mark and go on and do

:45:43.:45:48.

great things. I hope that is the situation for Adam Gemili. And this

:45:49.:45:51.

is an opportunity for somebody like Greg Rutherford to do something

:45:52.:45:56.

great and on home soil. It is something he will never forget for

:45:57.:46:01.

the rest of his life. People in the stadium and watching at home and

:46:02.:46:04.

around the world will appreciate athletes are competing and nobody is

:46:05.:46:10.

giving away medals here. That is not happening. Everybody understands

:46:11.:46:15.

this is relevant. The Commonwealth Games changed my life in 1994. I was

:46:16.:46:21.

trying to make my way in athletics and until I got that medal, this was

:46:22.:46:26.

an affirmation I could be good at this and make a difference. I

:46:27.:46:30.

changed my training group, I looked at what I could improve and it did

:46:31.:46:35.

bolster my confidence about who I was and what I wanted to achieve.

:46:36.:46:40.

There are two things that can give you confidence. Winning a medal at a

:46:41.:46:44.

championship does not matter, come of Games, Indoor Championships,

:46:45.:46:50.

whatever, and also to produce the times -- Commonwealth Games. But you

:46:51.:46:56.

can win a championship. Watching you Paula, I would say probably echoing

:46:57.:47:03.

a lot of stuff to me said, it was a major breakthrough. It was my first

:47:04.:47:07.

championship title on the track and that meant something. And Greg now

:47:08.:47:13.

has the Olympic and Commonwealth title. He has a chance of the

:47:14.:47:17.

European title, how many people have done those three? And he has a

:47:18.:47:21.

chance of a world title, not many people have got those four. It could

:47:22.:47:28.

be a grand slam this time next year, he could be going to China for the

:47:29.:47:33.

World Championships. I just think it makes a difference. Look at his

:47:34.:47:41.

face. He is beaming. As I said, this means as much to him as the Olympic

:47:42.:47:46.

Games. Fantastic. Let's take a moment for him and the stadium here

:47:47.:47:49.

at Hampden Park to enjoy the atmosphere.

:47:50.:48:02.

He looks so relieved. He put a lot of pressure on himself to deliver

:48:03.:49:07.

tonight. He did, he needed this. He really needed this. Not the

:49:08.:49:14.

distance, but for his confidence going forward. To know he has made

:49:15.:49:19.

the right decisions to get to the stage. I think he will go to Z?rich

:49:20.:49:25.

and go very far. In a couple of weeks time, the European

:49:26.:49:29.

Championships in Z?rich. He was injured a couple of weeks ago and he

:49:30.:49:32.

did not compete here in the Diamond League. Injuries last year, but Greg

:49:33.:49:38.

Rutherford is back smiling, on the top of the podium. You probably

:49:39.:49:43.

think that he always wins and you do not see the stories behind if you do

:49:44.:49:48.

not watch regularly. What he has been through a lot and he is back on

:49:49.:49:58.

top. -- what he has been. Let's get back out onto the field for the High

:49:59.:50:01.

Jump competition, with Steve Backley.

:50:02.:50:07.

Great scenes for Greg Rutherford but it is Englishman baker who got into

:50:08.:50:17.

the top four in the High Jump, and this was his final attempt. -- Chris

:50:18.:50:23.

Baker. The High Jump always ends on a fail. But it was a success at

:50:24.:50:31.

2.25. Chris Baker match Michael Mason, of Canada. -- matches.

:50:32.:50:49.

This is the favourite who has dominated throughout the

:50:50.:51:00.

competition. Queen clearances, and this that -- to 31. He became the

:51:01.:51:05.

10th man in history to go higher than 2.40, Drouin, earlier this

:51:06.:51:15.

year. Watch this, that is fantastic. If you are a budding High Jump, just

:51:16.:51:20.

do it like that. Perfect technique -- High Jump. There was only one man

:51:21.:51:39.

who could have stopped that. It was the Cypriots. He had a foul and he

:51:40.:51:49.

opted to pass. -- the Cypriots. Three fouls and you are out. So this

:51:50.:51:55.

opening jump was the only chance for Ioannou to go clear. The pressure.

:51:56.:52:06.

It ended up silver for the Cypriot, with a big season's best, a previous

:52:07.:52:15.

world medallist. So that led to the success and Gold for Drouin. So

:52:16.:52:33.

Drouin, the Commonwealth champion. And here is confirmation. Chris

:52:34.:52:37.

Baker down in agonising fourth place. It was the countback that got

:52:38.:52:48.

him. So two medals for Canada and success for Drouin.

:52:49.:52:57.

Drouin is one of the best in the world at the moment, leading a group

:52:58.:53:02.

of men who are consistently on top. That man is one of the great

:53:03.:53:06.

athletes of all time. That moment in London when he took Gold and a world

:53:07.:53:13.

record. Seb Coe said it was his favourite moment of the Games, and

:53:14.:53:18.

so many people appreciated the class he brought that night. And he

:53:19.:53:24.

continues to. Last year, he was injured and he is back this year. He

:53:25.:53:30.

is going to run 1.42, he said, he has done that already. How much

:53:31.:53:34.

lower can he get? This is the semifinal tonight. Paula? He can

:53:35.:53:40.

definitely go faster this season, I do not think he is going to attack

:53:41.:53:45.

this like he did the Olympics in terms of a world record. In terms of

:53:46.:53:49.

the World Championships, he will be happy to go away with the

:53:50.:53:51.

Commonwealth title and focus on running faster and regaining his

:53:52.:53:56.

fitness levels by the end of the season. It is a chilly night

:53:57.:54:10.

tonight. His aim, Denise, will be to get to the final. We saw the

:54:11.:54:14.

documentary which had footage from over ten years of David Rudisha and

:54:15.:54:21.

his progress and his training to get to that moment in London. It was

:54:22.:54:25.

just a fascinating insight. I loved it, it was riveting. An insight into

:54:26.:54:31.

his world. The preparation, the disappointments, his relationship

:54:32.:54:37.

with his brother. It was fantastic. A lot of people who did not see him

:54:38.:54:47.

in London... Disappointment Usain Bolt will not be running on his

:54:48.:54:53.

own, but he is as big a draw. He is, there are big stars in athletics.

:54:54.:54:59.

Usain Bolt, Shelly Ann Fraser-Pryce, Mo Farah. But this man is certainly

:55:00.:55:06.

one of those superstars and he is fantastic. That race, that was one

:55:07.:55:13.

of the most amazing I have seen, in London. I have always been a fan of

:55:14.:55:16.

the 800m. As a London. I have always been a fan of

:55:17.:55:27.

the 800m. 400-metre runner, you are amazed watching these guys! He is a

:55:28.:55:37.

great person. We talked about Kirani James earlier, a great young man.

:55:38.:55:42.

This is the same situation with David Rudisha. He is a very charming

:55:43.:55:47.

individual and he has that intelligence that you were talking

:55:48.:55:51.

about, Denise, the other night. Like Adam Gemili. He has that in terms of

:55:52.:55:56.

the way he approaches the race and the way he dissects it. One of the

:55:57.:56:01.

things I enjoyed about competing is the mental aspect of it, and he does

:56:02.:56:07.

as well. We can go to Steve Cram for this 800m race.

:56:08.:56:13.

I am sorry I have not had chance to tell you about the other seven men

:56:14.:56:17.

in this race, David Rudisha does have to beat them to get through.

:56:18.:56:28.

Three of them will go through. Another very good Kenyans in here.

:56:29.:56:33.

David Rudisha will have to be on his guard -- union. -- Kenya. He is not

:56:34.:56:43.

100%. He is not at this stage he was at a couple of years ago. He still

:56:44.:56:48.

should be good enough to qualify without any problem. What can the

:56:49.:57:01.

others do? David Rudisha, the only way for him is that front. He has a

:57:02.:57:09.

compatriot is next to him, Ferguson. 52.2, steady running. That is a big

:57:10.:57:17.

bump. The Australian on the outside. He asked for that, to be honest, he

:57:18.:57:26.

was obviously in too tight. That can seriously affect the race. That is

:57:27.:57:30.

why it David Rudisha has developed the technique of running at the

:57:31.:57:37.

front. -- that is why David. Looking strong with his team-mate. Really

:57:38.:57:44.

moving. What a great race for the Scotsman here. Three will go through

:57:45.:57:52.

to the final. Running the race of his life at the moment, can he

:57:53.:57:57.

hadn't gone? They are all struggling. The Australian is

:57:58.:58:02.

finishing quickly. Can he do it? The Kenyans, one and two, who will be

:58:03.:58:09.

third? So close! Ricardo Cunningham of Jamaica finishing so fast. If

:58:10.:58:16.

this man makes it to the final... Come on, he says. He is looking at

:58:17.:58:19.

the score board, the flags waving. Come on, he says. He is looking at

:58:20.:58:24.

the David Rudisha is in the race but the Commonwealth Games are about

:58:25.:58:28.

people like this making it to the final. And he has done it. Well done

:58:29.:58:39.

to him, the race of his life. Learmonth. That is why these guys

:58:40.:58:46.

are here, they have inspired the young man. He was determined, he was

:58:47.:58:52.

very lucky early in the race at the bottom. This is David Rudisha. A

:58:53.:59:01.

site we are familiar with. He still looks the part, not at his best.

:59:02.:59:03.

site we are familiar with. He still looks the part, His team-mate will

:59:04.:59:09.

be a danger in the final. 54 for the second lap. Look at Learmonth in the

:59:10.:59:17.

finishing straight. Look at the yellow vest of Australia coming

:59:18.:59:21.

quickly. The Jamaican coming is coming quickly. -- Cunningham.

:59:22.:59:31.

Inches at the finish. Cunningham in second place. David Rudisha decides

:59:32.:59:39.

at this pace, I can watch the television. He is not looking

:59:40.:59:47.

around, and that makes sense. Learmonth running the race of his

:59:48.:59:53.

life, what it is time and -- what a time and place to do it, and he can

:59:54.:00:01.

now look forward and relax. He has earned his place in the Commonwealth

:00:02.:00:05.

Games. Well done, died Learmonth, we look forward to seeing you tomorrow

:00:06.:00:10.

-- three. Look out what that means to him. -- well done, Learmonth. He

:00:11.:00:20.

will be back to contest the 800-metre final. Let's find out what

:00:21.:00:21.

he thinks about that. It has been an incredible last

:00:22.:00:31.

couple of minutes, through to a mage or final in Hampden Park, can you

:00:32.:00:33.

describe it -- major final? best. He was just like, run for the

:00:34.:00:52.

place, the time will come, and that is what I did today. The time is not

:00:53.:00:59.

that quick but I don't care, I'm in the Commonwealth final. At home.

:01:00.:01:02.

They could not ask for anything more. What about the famous Royal at

:01:03.:01:09.

Hampden Park? Just listen to it, that is what pulled me through. I

:01:10.:01:15.

have enjoyed myself. I am in the final and I cannot thank everyone

:01:16.:01:20.

enough. The Scots, the fans, everyone that is here. I can't

:01:21.:01:26.

explain it. The energy that I get from everyone is amazing. Well done.

:01:27.:01:36.

Brilliant performance. STUDIO: What a performance by Guy Learmonth. It

:01:37.:01:39.

shows Judy effect of the home crowd and what it can do. That is what

:01:40.:01:46.

getting into the Commonwealth Games final means to someone like Guy

:01:47.:01:50.

Learmonth, it is a huge step up and I think everyone in the stadium was

:01:51.:01:54.

blowing him down the straight. Just to push across the line. That was

:01:55.:01:59.

really close and he did well to hold on. He did well not to be involved

:02:00.:02:08.

in all of the bumping. He did. Sometimes it is just about staying

:02:09.:02:11.

out of trouble. The 800 metres comes with a lot of argy-bargy and pushing

:02:12.:02:19.

and shoving. That was an incredible race. You have to take your

:02:20.:02:24.

opportunities. World class at the front of the race, David Rudisha

:02:25.:02:30.

crossing the line first. Congratulations on reaching another

:02:31.:02:33.

final, you were expected to do that but you have to live up to the

:02:34.:02:40.

expectation? Yes. You know, today it was a bit tough. I had to take it

:02:41.:02:54.

with a lot of caution. I lead from the front as I traditionally do and

:02:55.:02:59.

I controlled the race. What kind of shape I you in approaching the

:03:00.:03:02.

final? I feel as though I'm getting better every time. My body is really

:03:03.:03:10.

responding well. Now you have negotiated a couple of rounds, what

:03:11.:03:14.

kind of mindset are you in for the big showdown in the final? Well, I

:03:15.:03:19.

am expecting another good race. In the final we have really tough guys.

:03:20.:03:30.

It is going to be a little bit turf, it will be a tactical

:03:31.:03:37.

championship race. You must feel as though your own front of a home

:03:38.:03:42.

crowd? The crowd has been fantastic here. They love you and they

:03:43.:03:47.

appreciate you being here. The for the final. Ira Lee-Lo the crowd,

:03:48.:03:55.

they are fantastic. -- I really love it. He did not look troubled, he

:03:56.:04:04.

looked very relaxed. He looks so relaxed, I was concerned as they

:04:05.:04:09.

went through the bell, he looked as though he was frowning which was not

:04:10.:04:12.

characteristic of the way that he runs. But he was totally in control.

:04:13.:04:19.

He had time to check the screen. He eased off enough to still dominate

:04:20.:04:22.

and the other guys still know that you are the best but he was

:04:23.:04:27.

conserving energy for the final. Stiff opposition coming from the

:04:28.:04:34.

next semifinal, Amos was behind him in London but has since emerged into

:04:35.:04:39.

a world beater. Yes, he was one of the ones who came passed him in

:04:40.:04:44.

Monaco recently. This is the race in Monaco. He led into the straight but

:04:45.:04:50.

he does not quite have the fitness from the training that he missed

:04:51.:04:54.

with his knee injury. He was almost racing himself into shape this

:04:55.:05:00.

year. Amos came past. He ran amazingly well to take the French

:05:01.:05:05.

record in race. Rudisha will have come on strongly from that race. It

:05:06.:05:08.

would also have fired him out because nobody likes to be beaten.

:05:09.:05:12.

He wants to re-establish himself over Amos. Amos from Botswana.

:05:13.:05:26.

Botswana of course, now we see great athletes from Botswana putting

:05:27.:05:29.

themselves at the top of the world table in their events. The female

:05:30.:05:36.

athlete missing out, but Amos will want to stake a claim. Absolutely.

:05:37.:05:42.

He carried the flag for Botswana in the opening ceremony and this is

:05:43.:05:46.

important to him, he is racing one of his idols. He also wants to win

:05:47.:05:55.

the title. What I love about the Commonwealth Games is that you hear

:05:56.:05:59.

the stories about the facilities in Botswana, it is tough for these

:06:00.:06:02.

guys, but they come on the circuit to make their mark and he is here

:06:03.:06:08.

with a chance to make the final. Let's handover to the commentary.

:06:09.:06:14.

COMMENTATOR: Rudisha may well be leading, but Amos is the favourite,

:06:15.:06:20.

he is close to his best. Let's wrap up the first heat. Guy Learmonth is

:06:21.:06:30.

through automatically. Two go through as the fastest losers. This

:06:31.:06:40.

is how they line up in the second semifinal. Amos leading the way. He

:06:41.:06:46.

is head and shoulders above the rest but a few of them have similar

:06:47.:06:54.

season bests. Michael Rimmer in line seven, he is the UK champion,

:06:55.:07:00.

winning it for a seventh time this season. Nigel Amos, so much has been

:07:01.:07:10.

said about him. He was 18 when he won his silver medal when he

:07:11.:07:13.

equalled the great Marcotte Sebastian Coe. Evans Kipkorir of

:07:14.:07:21.

Kenya. The 20-year-old. The Kenyan prisons Champlin, that does not

:07:22.:07:24.

sound ground but it is fiercely contested. -- champion. The training

:07:25.:07:33.

partner of Nigel Amos, Andre Olivier, the South African. He is a

:07:34.:07:34.

real threat here. Alberto Mamba is just 19, he may be

:07:35.:07:54.

struggling for pace here. Aaron Evans will be hoping for a slightly

:07:55.:08:01.

slower pace than the more fancied names outside are capable of. Out in

:08:02.:08:06.

lane eight as well we have Joe Thomas going for Wales, he came

:08:07.:08:11.

through after the disqualification in the first round. Andrew Osagie

:08:12.:08:17.

disqualified. He has got the turn of speed, the second semifinal of the

:08:18.:08:23.

men's 800 metres. Three go through automatically plus the two fastest

:08:24.:08:28.

losers for tomorrow's final. What a great race we had in the first

:08:29.:08:33.

semifinal, the large figure of Andre Olivier will lead out his training

:08:34.:08:42.

partner Amos. Amos just looking across as they break. Olivia is

:08:43.:08:49.

setting the pace. -- Olivier. It is good to see Michael Rimmer moving

:08:50.:08:57.

into second place. We know that Amos has a fantastic finish and he will

:08:58.:09:04.

be happy to follow winner. -- Michael Bremmer. Let's face it, we

:09:05.:09:12.

will look at the performance of Amos. Look to see how he finishes

:09:13.:09:18.

the race the race tomorrow in the final, shaming he gets there,

:09:19.:09:21.

against David Rudisha could be the race of the games. -- Ashley Ming

:09:22.:09:24.

that he gets there. -- assuming. Under pressure from ten one', from

:09:25.:09:44.

Uganda. -- Musagala. Trying to keep pace at the moment. The Kenyan Evans

:09:45.:09:48.

Kipkorir is coming through as well. Sitting behind Michael Rimmer.

:09:49.:09:54.

Olivier and his training partner Amos. Just drifting off the back. He

:09:55.:10:01.

cannot get there. It will be these three going through automatically

:10:02.:10:03.

add Michael Rimmer is losing the battle for fourth place as well. --

:10:04.:10:17.

and tears. -- and he is. I am not sure Michael Rimmer was quick

:10:18.:10:23.

enough. We will wait and see. A bit of a disappointment for Michael

:10:24.:10:27.

Rimmer. He ran a solid race but when he came under pressure, they were

:10:28.:10:30.

too strong for him. He could not really hold on. Looking at the

:10:31.:10:39.

finishing times. This man here, he set the pace, with Olivier. Amos, on

:10:40.:10:44.

his knees, I am sure he will challenge David Rudisha tomorrow.

:10:45.:10:53.

Paula just said yes, he has made it. I was just going over my notes. He

:10:54.:11:05.

is in fifth place. The two fastest losers and I got the fastest losers

:11:06.:11:06.

at we will call that for you officially

:11:07.:11:18.

in a moment. Paula is normally good with these things. He would join Guy

:11:19.:11:24.

Learmonth, the home nation representatives tomorrow. Paula

:11:25.:11:32.

Radcliffe is a mathematical genius and marathon runner. That concludes

:11:33.:11:35.

the athletics for tonight but it continues on BBC Three. We have seen

:11:36.:11:41.

great stuff with Greg Rutherford winning gold and Kirani James

:11:42.:11:45.

winning the 400 and beating the Commonwealth Games record of Ewan

:11:46.:11:49.

Thomas which had stood for 16 years. This was his response!

:11:50.:11:57.

I am not sure he is looking into it or throwing up on it! He's probably

:11:58.:12:08.

a bit disappointed. -- tucking in. Now, let's go to the Hydro to see

:12:09.:12:12.

who will be crowned the women all around champion.

:12:13.:12:27.

COMMENTATOR: Going for the big double twist. Not a problem. Really

:12:28.:12:36.

mature performance, there. Cracking routine from her. Very nice work.

:12:37.:12:48.

The crowd here are just loving the performances. Absolutely first

:12:49.:12:54.

class. Well, prepare to be entertained.

:12:55.:13:07.

That is the scene at the Hydro and there to build up to one of the

:13:08.:13:13.

moments of this or any games is former world and Commonwealth

:13:14.:13:14.

champion Beth Tweddle alongside Matt Baker.

:13:15.:13:20.

What a story that has been unfolding, Ruby Harrold qualified in

:13:21.:13:25.

third and she is now leading the field with two more pieces of

:13:26.:13:28.

apparatus remaining. England won until at the moment. Ruby Harrold,

:13:29.:13:35.

cloudy Fraga Pana, and then the Canadian Elizabeth Black in third.

:13:36.:13:38.

-- Claudia Fragapane at. What a performance from Elisabeth

:13:39.:13:50.

Beddoe of Wales. Hannah Whelan in sixth position. She has not given

:13:51.:13:55.

away many deductions. It goes to show how tight the competition is.

:13:56.:14:01.

Yes, the difference between first and sixth place is not a lot. Her

:14:02.:14:08.

strongest pieces, Hannah, are still to come, so she can make up the

:14:09.:14:14.

difference. Claudia Fragapane, she is her normal consistent so fingers

:14:15.:14:19.

crossed they can keep it going. Claudia is up first on the beam and

:14:20.:14:25.

she has got a difficult routine. She has a standing full twist right near

:14:26.:14:30.

the end of her routine. She performed superbly yesterday. She

:14:31.:14:32.

helped our team to the gold medal but who knows. Megan Chant from

:14:33.:14:41.

Canada. She is in with a real chance of a medal. She qualified in seventh

:14:42.:14:50.

for the flare final. It is all really still to play for here. Just

:14:51.:14:57.

a quick note ahead, how good is Black on the beam? She can be very

:14:58.:15:04.

good oral... It really does make or break the overall final -- or... And

:15:05.:15:14.

finishing on the floor, the medal contenders. Florida is the nicest

:15:15.:15:19.

1-2 finish on, you can engage with the crowd and use the atmosphere and

:15:20.:15:22.

the adrenaline. It is always the nicest piece. The Show will Ruby

:15:23.:15:36.

Harrold feeling, knowing these are not her strongest aces? She will be

:15:37.:15:46.

looking forwards. She has got to perform on beam. So Megan receives

:15:47.:15:52.

the applause from the crowd. White did ever so well for Scotland, but

:15:53.:15:56.

all eyes will be at the other end of the Hydro arena. You can see the

:15:57.:16:08.

beam just in the background there. It is Claudia Fragapane E, who is in

:16:09.:16:13.

silver medal position in the all-round competition.

:16:14.:16:34.

negotiated. -- two leaps. The backflip. The straight somersault.

:16:35.:16:38.

Oh, what a shame. She just hesitated. This has not been her

:16:39.:16:47.

strongest piece that she was so positive yesterday. She has to put

:16:48.:16:49.

that behind her man. -- she has to put that behind her

:16:50.:16:55.

now. Two backflips, dismantle great. She

:16:56.:17:50.

did so well to put the fall behind her. She must be absolutely

:17:51.:17:56.

destroyed inside. She will keep control of herself. She knows it's

:17:57.:18:04.

all new for her. She really was not far off. She tried to react a little

:18:05.:18:13.

bit too much. But as you say, a real shock, and then to continue and pull

:18:14.:18:16.

out difficulty like the full twisting somersault to land... And

:18:17.:18:23.

she will you went for it. Some impact on her leg there as well.

:18:24.:18:31.

Maegan Chant. The scores are growing for her.

:18:32.:18:42.

Presenting, projecting. And now preparing.

:18:43.:19:23.

Two and a half twists, she skipped to the side. She controlled that

:19:24.:20:37.

well. Well done. As she was on beam, just as graceful on floor.

:20:38.:20:50.

Beautiful, elegant, graceful work. Performed to the music. You can see

:20:51.:20:59.

these gymnasts have made friends. The chance of a medal for Claudia

:21:00.:21:10.

Fragapane con. -- has gone. The rest have to do better.

:21:11.:21:15.

From South Africa, Beckett, 18 years old.

:21:16.:21:40.

The acrobatic series is the best we have seen. The backflip and tuck

:21:41.:21:45.

back. Very smooth, good written to this

:21:46.:22:01.

routine. There have been little wobble is as well. - good written.

:22:02.:22:08.

She just did not give enough energy to that side somersault. Her legs

:22:09.:22:14.

just didn't go right overhead. I wonder, for some of these

:22:15.:22:32.

gymnasts, if the three competitions three days in a row is taking its

:22:33.:22:39.

toll a little bit. Big double back. They are very efficient on these

:22:40.:22:43.

dismounts. Building the difficulty all the way to the end. There are

:22:44.:22:50.

proving to be quite a few casualties really in this all-around and

:22:51.:22:57.

petition. Some 50 to do actions. So who knows, Fragapane can still be in

:22:58.:23:07.

a chance of a medal. The highest score so far in this all-round

:23:08.:23:08.

women's competition. The Australian will go out with all

:23:09.:23:22.

of the entertainment value she has got here. She loves to please the

:23:23.:23:23.

crowd. The floor performance in the team

:23:24.:23:31.

competition was strangely lacking. but the tumbling is much, much

:23:32.:24:26.

better than she did in the team competition.

:24:27.:24:54.

She is tumbling so much better. Rising to the occasion. But I don't

:24:55.:25:05.

know, Chris? The choreography definitely has a theme to it. It is

:25:06.:25:11.

telling a story, but I don't find it terribly attractive or appealing.

:25:12.:25:16.

She was in eighth position. Let's see if she can move up the rankings.

:25:17.:25:27.

Who knows? The music was from the Amazon jungle I think. I think it

:25:28.:25:29.

had an aboriginal theme. Hannah Whelan has been European

:25:30.:25:40.

bronze medallist on this piece of apparatus. She needs all the marks

:25:41.:25:43.

she can get. Hannah has what so many of the other

:25:44.:25:57.

gymnasts do not, rate fluency on the beam.

:25:58.:26:02.

-- great clemency. She has gone for broke. No wonder she took a pause.

:26:03.:26:33.

The skill that gave her a big wobble yesterday that she was much more

:26:34.:26:37.

precise on that performance. It is a performance on the beam,

:26:38.:26:46.

rather than just a series of moves. Two and a half, a super, super

:26:47.:27:13.

performance from Hannah Whelan. She could well be in with a shout here.

:27:14.:27:20.

She wants a medal as much as anyone. This is her peace and she didn't

:27:21.:27:26.

really do very well yesterday. So she really wanted to show everyone

:27:27.:27:31.

what she could do today. Two layouts from the free cartwheel.

:27:32.:27:47.

She's very consistent with her scoring today, the Australian.

:27:48.:28:05.

Canada on floor. She produced a good beam.

:28:06.:28:14.

A tiny buckle on the pike but so far nothing serious. Well done indeed.

:28:15.:29:44.

So she's picked up on the last two apparatus, beam and floor have stood

:29:45.:29:52.

her in very good stead indeed. One more to go for the 16-year-old. The

:29:53.:29:59.

all -around competition is over very quickly. Hannah Whelan is on her

:30:00.:30:06.

way. She's building. She has had two very good scores.

:30:07.:30:30.

She rushed slightly into that change.

:30:31.:30:38.

She was in forthcoming into this rotation.

:30:39.:30:50.

little bit rattled after falling off on something that was easy for her.

:30:51.:31:12.

She needs to get into her rhythm now. That was a super double spin.

:31:13.:31:31.

And she gets the connection, the free walkover into the jump.

:31:32.:31:46.

Good dismount, good one and a half, she did so well to get the early

:31:47.:31:53.

fall behind her. The Welsh contingent, there. What a day they

:31:54.:32:00.

had in the all-round, getting the historic bronze medal, maybe that

:32:01.:32:08.

has taken it out of her a little. They all stayed on the beam in that

:32:09.:32:11.

qualification competition. There was talk that she did not get quickly

:32:12.:32:15.

enough into the second leap and she tried to speed it up. Onyshko moves

:32:16.:32:29.

up into fourth but for how long? Charlotte Sullivan is up next. One

:32:30.:32:36.

of the youngest gymnasts here. Just 16. But she has qualified for the

:32:37.:32:42.

flare final. -- floor. Nicely controlled. Can she keep it

:32:43.:33:00.

up through the tumbling? Triple twist. Easy. And a double pike. A

:33:01.:33:18.

couple of tumbles to set her away. She will be well pleased with this

:33:19.:34:17.

performance on floor, but she did not land it. She touches down, one

:34:18.:34:23.

hallmark away, what a pity. She was going so well. -- whole mark. She

:34:24.:34:31.

gave the judges licensed to deduct. She was thinking the same as you,

:34:32.:34:35.

when she was going up to the tumble, and sometimes you can lose

:34:36.:34:38.

concentration and before you know it, your hands are down. Elizabeth

:34:39.:34:47.

Beddoe. She is staying in fourth at the moment. Well, the leader of this

:34:48.:35:00.

competition, Ruby Harrold. With her beam routine, now, how much pressure

:35:01.:35:05.

is she under here? She knows that this is the piece that matters. If

:35:06.:35:10.

she can do her best here, she has got a chance. Probably the piece

:35:11.:35:25.

that Ruby has two work hardest at. -- has two work. Nice height and

:35:26.:35:35.

flight on the leaps. Punching... Oh. Goodness me. That surprises me.

:35:36.:35:41.

She looked so strong and positive, she dipped her shoulder on take-off.

:35:42.:35:52.

My word! APPLAUSE Very secure with the combination.

:35:53.:36:04.

The acrobatic series. She has become a bit jittery now. She has to keep

:36:05.:36:09.

her focus. Change leg ring, the judges would

:36:10.:36:26.

have to be generous to feel that her touch tax base foot touches her

:36:27.:36:32.

head. Strong in the free cartwheel. -- per

:36:33.:36:40.

Lift, find the floor, she did. Well done. Right at the beginning of the

:36:41.:36:49.

routine. How costly will befall proved to be? There is not long to

:36:50.:36:55.

wait to find out. -- will that fail proved to be?

:36:56.:37:02.

Just the left shoulder dipping write-down. You can see Beth's

:37:03.:37:16.

expression. The dismount had a few deductions yesterday, that was much

:37:17.:37:23.

better. So, Elizabeth Black has watched the two gymnasts ahead of

:37:24.:37:27.

her making mistakes. 11.84 Charlotte Sullivan.

:37:28.:37:33.

The last gymnast on floor, Georgina Hockenhull. She starts with a

:37:34.:37:52.

difficult leap. This is a difficult time Bill. She needs all of her

:37:53.:37:57.

concentration and confidence. Double Arabian. Easily performed. --

:37:58.:38:09.

difficult tumble. But this takes all of her skill. One and a half,

:38:10.:38:13.

walk-out, needs to be smooth into the doubletalk. What a shame. --

:38:14.:38:20.

double tuck. Good leaps, the change leg ring. She

:38:21.:38:38.

has do hit the splits here. Good half term. She needs to forget her

:38:39.:38:42.

last problem and make sure that she concentrates for this tumble. --

:38:43.:38:50.

turn. She moves out. Not being precise enough on this piece. Very

:38:51.:38:59.

powerful young gymnast. She struggles to always harness her

:39:00.:39:25.

power. Double pike to finish, that is more like it. APPLAUSE

:39:26.:39:31.

She has left us with the impression of the wonderful dismount, the

:39:32.:39:32.

tumble, double pike. You must be very proud? Yes. Ruby Harrold, she

:39:33.:39:43.

will stay ahead of Fragapane. We'll she stay ahead of this lady? -- will

:39:44.:39:52.

she. Elizabeth Black was in bronze medal position. Coming into the

:39:53.:39:57.

rotation. But now she has her sights set on gold. This is a difficult

:39:58.:40:22.

routine. The highest difficulty score in the competition. She

:40:23.:40:24.

negotiates the double spin. That was their problem in the team

:40:25.:40:36.

competition. Very strong and positive on the pike front

:40:37.:40:40.

somersault. Backflip layout. She is very light far powerful gymnast,

:40:41.:40:40.

good, light landings. -- for a powerful gymnast. Now, this is very

:40:41.:40:57.

difficult. Backflip, fault West. -- full twist. It is very risky as

:40:58.:41:13.

well. Change leg leap. Change leg half. A little bit untidy, both of

:41:14.:41:31.

those leaps. That was strong, the tuck front somersault. She stamps

:41:32.:41:42.

those out so well. Just the dismount to come. Two and a half twists,

:41:43.:41:53.

nicely performed, that dismount. Goodness me, it has run through the

:41:54.:42:00.

group. The problems on the beam have set up a grandstand finale on the

:42:01.:42:08.

last rotation, that's for sure. It was a bit of an epidemic. It is not

:42:09.:42:13.

good to see anyone fall, but when you see three major contenders, here

:42:14.:42:16.

we are, this is so difficult. She looked online when she set up.

:42:17.:42:21.

Probably a bit short. On-air time. That was well controlled. Nothing

:42:22.:42:25.

wrong with the two and a half twists. What a cracking final piece

:42:26.:42:29.

of operators we will have here. Georgina Hockenhull scored 11.966.

:42:30.:42:44.

-- of apparatus. STUDIO: We wondered before the competition started

:42:45.:42:51.

whether it will be close, and it turns out you need some kind of

:42:52.:43:10.

accountancy degree to work out who needs what in the final round. Beth,

:43:11.:43:15.

you have been doing the sums. Between Ruby Harrold and Fragapane

:43:16.:43:21.

there is 0.133 and between Ruby Harrold and Hannah eight is only

:43:22.:43:23.

1.2. Such small fractions. And obviously Fragapane has a massive

:43:24.:43:25.

score after posting 14.7 yesterday. Cloudier, she did think, that's it,

:43:26.:43:28.

it is over for me, but obviously she packed her beam routine with extreme

:43:29.:43:34.

difficulty. Even though she fell, because the routine was so

:43:35.:43:41.

difficult, you know, she could afford to give a bit away? We are

:43:42.:43:50.

still awaiting the Canadian score. It will be so close between all four

:43:51.:43:55.

of them. She literally went for the wobble, her foot slipped, and she

:43:56.:43:58.

did everything do save it. That was the hardest move. To keep her nerve

:43:59.:44:01.

for the full twisting tuck, that shows nerves of steel. They will be

:44:02.:44:03.

needed on the last piece of apparatus Budgie has a good floor,

:44:04.:44:09.

Fragapane. Incredible. -- but she has. She was almost a full mark in

:44:10.:44:15.

front of her English team-mate yesterday. Yes

:44:16.:44:44.

front of her English team-mate beam and felt, it has gone, but now

:44:45.:44:47.

that she has seen she is still in with a chance, she will go out for

:44:48.:44:52.

the floor with dynamic power, and the judges are looking for the

:44:53.:45:02.

massive powerful tumbles to stay within the lines. The mixture of

:45:03.:45:15.

jumps and leaps and also the artistry. Fragapane has got it all.

:45:16.:45:28.

She has a bit of body popping in her routine. She will go last and the

:45:29.:45:37.

crowd will be hoping she takes the title. You used to play on that as

:45:38.:45:50.

well, get your castanets out and have everyone clapping away, with

:45:51.:45:54.

your Spanish feel. It is the 1-piece way you can do crowd interaction. On

:45:55.:46:02.

floor, you take the energy and you do have this control of the energy.

:46:03.:46:10.

Can Ruby Harrold cope with this? I think she can. She has done it at

:46:11.:46:15.

major championships be. She has been in world and European finals.

:46:16.:46:23.

Between all four of them there is literally 0.3. And she could climb

:46:24.:46:29.

back up there as well, Hannah. Yes. And to have three of our English

:46:30.:46:33.

girls out of the four in medal contention, that would never have

:46:34.:46:38.

happened a few years ago, so it's great for British gymnastics, and

:46:39.:46:43.

obviously Beddoe and Wales have a great standing here as well. Don't

:46:44.:46:48.

go anywhere. The final piece of apparatus in the women's all-around

:46:49.:46:54.

competition. Beckett from South Africa.

:46:55.:46:59.

meant to be a second leap there. You have to have a leap passage and

:47:00.:47:43.

without it she would lose 0.5. A double-take at the finish. --

:47:44.:48:23.

double tuck. Not the sparkly floor routine we would have expected from

:48:24.:48:28.

her. You have to be a bit more professional than that when you are

:48:29.:48:33.

disappointed. These gymnasts have experienced all kinds of emotions in

:48:34.:48:38.

a short period of time. That is what most of them are not used to, and it

:48:39.:48:44.

is if the court to get yourself together afterwards. She just caught

:48:45.:48:50.

her foot and she was going to go. We understand that Elizabeth Black has

:48:51.:48:55.

put in an enquiry on the last piece of operators dealt with apparatus,

:48:56.:49:05.

and her school. Yesterday she scored a lot more for a routine that was

:49:06.:49:07.

similar with one fall. This will be her last piece of

:49:08.:49:13.

apparatus. A five the difficulty. Lovely presents all the way through

:49:14.:49:34.

this competition. That is how she wraps it up. A nice full twist and a

:49:35.:49:40.

broad smile. What a way to finish and all- around competition. She has

:49:41.:49:45.

had a great time and won a few friends. Look at this.

:49:46.:49:53.

Dead centre. Nice, clean lines. Good, sharp twist. Stretch through

:49:54.:50:05.

the knees. Lovely vault. Good way to finish.

:50:06.:50:13.

Kirsten Beckett finishes with an 11.633.

:50:14.:50:23.

Well, Hannah Whelan got a bronze at the European Championships on this

:50:24.:50:29.

piece of apparatus. She is qualified with the third highest score for the

:50:30.:50:36.

floor final and my word, does she need the performance of her life

:50:37.:50:37.

here. That is exactly what England

:50:38.:52:10.

ordered! A beautiful routine, packed with difficulty. And absolute

:52:11.:52:20.

perfection. Real entertainment. And the too performance marrying a dance

:52:21.:52:29.

with the tumbling. Super stuff. It could be a late charge. Such an

:52:30.:52:39.

atmosphere, and she just built it there. The whole audience was with

:52:40.:52:41.

her. Terrific stuff. 13.933. The scores kept building.

:52:42.:52:58.

And she has certainly made a lot of friends here, the Malaysians.

:52:59.:53:06.

The Australian was joking to me a few days ago she has not vaulted for

:53:07.:53:09.

ages. She has got attitude. She is loving

:53:10.:53:35.

every minute. She is the oldest on the team and is loving every second.

:53:36.:53:42.

minute of this competition. Elizabeth Black has put in that

:53:43.:54:05.

enquiry for her school and it has been rejected, so I think she's

:54:06.:54:11.

going to have to change her attitude here, going into this last piece,

:54:12.:54:15.

because there is no point in dwelling on it. Absolutely not, and

:54:16.:54:21.

she's got a big floor. Hannah Whelan, 13.5, goes into first place

:54:22.:54:24.

for the moment. Lizzie Beddoe seventh coming into

:54:25.:54:41.

this final rotation. She did win floor at the British Championships

:54:42.:54:42.

this year. finish for her. Well, she may move

:54:43.:56:14.

up from seventh. But that's it. She can do no more. All pieces done.

:56:15.:56:19.

That is the all-around competition over. She led the Welsh team so

:56:20.:56:26.

effectively to their bronze medal. Full twist. Nice in the air. Good,

:56:27.:56:58.

confident, clean. A good last two apparatus.

:56:59.:57:06.

Plenty of attack. Good conversion. Slightly off centre, but so much

:57:07.:57:18.

power. A great job. Four pieces done. Good line. Lifted the chest. A

:57:19.:57:30.

really nice conversion. Snaps well. Good extension through the

:57:31.:57:36.

shoulders. Look how she lifts the shoulders up. To try to make the

:57:37.:57:40.

most of the dismount. STUDIO: A critical stage in the
