the last time check, now he is six seconds the other way. It does not

:00:00.:00:00.

bode well for Dowsett. I am surprised about that. Yes, Dennis is

:00:00.:00:13.

firing on all sinners. -- firing on all cylinders. The ride in fourth,

:00:14.:00:21.

Jesse Sergent of New Zealand, 38 seconds back. Suddenly, it is clear

:00:22.:00:28.

who is in this for the medals. It has gone from 76 in the last time

:00:29.:00:34.

check, now we are back to three riders contesting this. That middle

:00:35.:00:37.

section has cracked the field and shown how it is who will be vying

:00:38.:00:43.

for a podium spot. Every second you can gain on a corner, sprinting down

:00:44.:00:48.

towards the city centre, could make all the difference for those three.

:00:49.:00:55.

I would say that Thomas is heading for at least a second place here

:00:56.:01:00.

because Dowsett faded over that middle section which we were not

:01:01.:01:04.

really expecting. We may pull something back on the fast downhill

:01:05.:01:08.

run to the park here but Thomas is still looking strong. It is between

:01:09.:01:15.

those three. Dennis is yet to have his bad patch. If that comes, he

:01:16.:01:28.

could also be overhauled. He has not quite gone through yet, David

:01:29.:01:33.

Millar. He is still in ninth position overall. Over a minute out

:01:34.:01:37.

of the game now so it is between these three. Thomas is the first of

:01:38.:01:46.

the contenders to get through the 32 K check. 38.37 is the time to beat.

:01:47.:01:57.

That 32 kilometre check is on the way back in. They will go straight

:01:58.:02:08.

back on towards town. That is an aerial shot of Dennis. Still looking

:02:09.:02:14.

pretty good. He is working hard, the gear tends to get bigger. It is a

:02:15.:02:23.

good part of the Kia -- of the course to dig deep. If you are going

:02:24.:02:30.

to start dying away, this is the right to rain. A wet morning has

:02:31.:02:38.

turned into a lovely sunny afternoon for this meant's time trial. -- the

:02:39.:02:43.

right to rain. If he can get over this and he gets a macro rest, he

:02:44.:02:49.

will drive hard. -- a small rest. This will be a close race. It would

:02:50.:03:01.

just be a short rest, nothing more. Geraint Thomas, the fastest time so

:03:02.:03:06.

far. Dennis had the advantage at the last time check. The best part of

:03:07.:03:13.

six seconds ahead. He is starting to suffer now. It is going to be very

:03:14.:03:22.

close. Thomas has eaten into it. Geraint Thomas is not out of this.

:03:23.:03:29.

He has eaten into it by a couple of seconds. Scraping away.

:03:30.:03:31.

He has eaten into it by a couple of Thomas is great on the final couple

:03:32.:03:35.

of corners. This will go down to the wire. What a fantastically close

:03:36.:03:44.

competition. At the first time check, Thomas was seven seconds from

:03:45.:03:51.

the pace. He was ahead of Dennis. He was behind Dennis at the next check

:03:52.:04:01.

by three seconds. Then he moved to within two microseconds. It is so

:04:02.:04:05.

close between these riders now. This is Geraint Thomas coming back into

:04:06.:04:14.

the centre of Glasgow. He has a left-hand turn and he will head

:04:15.:04:18.

towards Glasgow Green. Can he gain seconds on these corners? It is not

:04:19.:04:24.

over yet for him. The chance of a Gold medal which would be the third

:04:25.:04:29.

only macro by a Welsh cyclist in the Commonwealth Games, the chance has

:04:30.:04:35.

not gone yet. Attitude is everything in these closing kilometres. Who

:04:36.:04:41.

wants it the most? They are all close to the Gold medal. In the

:04:42.:04:45.

final corners, you have to select gears carefully. Stay on top of it.

:04:46.:04:52.

He wants it the most? Coming towards the finish, the fastest time has

:04:53.:04:59.

been set by Marcus Christie of Northern Ireland. The big boys are

:05:00.:05:04.

coming in now in Svein Tuft is one of them. We are about to see a new

:05:05.:05:11.

fastest time -- in Svein Tuft. The fastest time has been set by Steve

:05:12.:05:19.

Cummings. Svein Tuft, he is set to beat the time of Steve Cummings. The

:05:20.:05:25.

Canadian is top of the leaderboard by 49 seconds but he will not read

:05:26.:05:33.

for long. A good strong ride by him. The battle on the road is between

:05:34.:05:42.

these riders. Alex Dowsett looks a lot smoother, like he has recovered

:05:43.:05:47.

slightly. The fastest through this next time check is Rohan Dennis, at

:05:48.:05:55.

32 kilometres. Geraint Thomas is for microseconds lower. Alex Dowsett is

:05:56.:06:02.

starting to dig in now, they are all suffering but who can suffer the

:06:03.:06:07.

fastest? He is shifting around on the saddle, we have not seen that

:06:08.:06:11.

yet. Still in contention but not as smooth as he was earlier. That was a

:06:12.:06:15.

knowing look on your face as you looked at Alex Dowsett. You will

:06:16.:06:20.

know what he is going through. He would just want it to be over. It is

:06:21.:06:26.

Geraint Thomas for Wales. One big sprints towards the line. Hoping,

:06:27.:06:30.

just hoping it might be a sprints to fix three. -- is rent. Surely it is

:06:31.:06:40.

a sprints to a medal -- ace rent. Excellent ride from the Welshman. Up

:06:41.:06:49.

to the line, 47 minutes, 55 seconds, the new fastest time for Geraint

:06:50.:06:52.

Thomas. He will have to sit and wait to find out if it is enough. There

:06:53.:07:01.

was passion. When you see a sprint like that, you can see he

:07:02.:07:08.

desperately wants it. In third position now at the final check is

:07:09.:07:12.

Alex Dowsett so he has it all to do. He is in the bronze medal position.

:07:13.:07:22.

He is in arrears by one second. So Rohan Dennis leading the way at the

:07:23.:07:28.

last checkpoint. Thomas is second, in the silver medal position. Just

:07:29.:07:32.

over five seconds separating the top three. Jesse Sergent now out of the

:07:33.:07:41.

running for a medal. Amazing how it has changed around. It did that in

:07:42.:07:46.

the women's event as well. Its changes and changes. They have also

:07:47.:07:52.

that down this final section. This is Jesse Sergent, from New Zealand.

:07:53.:07:57.

Heading on towards the finishing area. He has got to go around

:07:58.:08:03.

Glasgow Green and along the banks of the River Clyde. And he will come at

:08:04.:08:09.

the final 250 metres to the finishing line. -- he will, up to

:08:10.:08:20.

the final. --, opt. He has two big a job to get onto the podium. He is

:08:21.:08:24.

being challenged for the fourth position. They are coming in all the

:08:25.:08:37.

time. All eyes and nose at the top. Bailey, from Guernsey. -- all eyes

:08:38.:08:47.

are on those. Now we are back with Rohan Dennis. He is really labouring

:08:48.:08:53.

now. He has hardly anything left. They have all looked the same way.

:08:54.:09:01.

He is wavering in it. -- a bit. The stiff breeze could be affecting him.

:09:02.:09:07.

David Millar is way off the pace. Disappointment for David Millar

:09:08.:09:12.

today. Still cheered by everybody at the roadside. 1.75 minutes down.

:09:13.:09:21.

Jesse Sergent starts to sprint here. Geraint Thomas has the time to beat.

:09:22.:09:29.

Jesse Sergent digging deeper. Just for the final metres. And it is a

:09:30.:09:37.

good ride. It is, he has picked up over this final section. Not what I

:09:38.:09:42.

expected. He has got to come around the park but it is still a strong

:09:43.:09:49.

ride. 45 seconds after they get to the park. He is further away than I

:09:50.:09:56.

thought he was, Jesse Sergent. He is now coming into the finishing

:09:57.:10:00.

straight. Sweeping curve, he took that well. Excellent technique.

:10:01.:10:10.

Quick, strong. Technically good. He is in fine form and it has been an

:10:11.:10:14.

excellent lover macro 460 macro today, of New Zealand, but it will

:10:15.:10:18.

not be quite good enough -- an excellent ride by Jesse Sergent. He

:10:19.:10:27.

will be pushed down a place, he will lose a position to Svein Tuft. Back

:10:28.:10:35.

in the closing stages with Rohan Dennis. Svein Tuft in silver medal

:10:36.:10:43.

position. Thomas has done his job, it is about these two now. Alex

:10:44.:10:50.

Dowsett and Rohan Dennis. What can they do? Nothing more the Welshman

:10:51.:10:54.

can do except see what happens. He has just got to wait and see. Dennis

:10:55.:11:01.

has had a tough time over this final section. He has driven hard. The

:11:02.:11:08.

gear has gone up now as he sets himself up for this right-hand turn.

:11:09.:11:13.

Narrow section, easy to make a mistake. He is fighting. Really

:11:14.:11:22.

showing the fatigue. What has he got left? For the last minute or so.

:11:23.:11:30.

Rohan Dennis. Can he keep his nose in front as it has been for a little

:11:31.:11:36.

while? Geraint Thomas. He is just waiting. At least he can relax in

:11:37.:11:41.

the knowledge he has done a superb ride and he could not have done

:11:42.:11:47.

more. That is the Australian camp. Anxious moments for Wales and for

:11:48.:11:54.

Geraint Thomas. I think it is still going to be close. I think Dennis is

:11:55.:11:59.

doing a ride here. He has finished well. He is heading towards the two

:12:00.:12:08.

right-hand bends. It is around 40, 45 seconds. I think Dennis will do

:12:09.:12:15.

it but it will be close and it could come down to the sprint. Excellent

:12:16.:12:21.

finish to the women's raise and an excellent finish to the man's raise.

:12:22.:12:26.

Rohan Dennis is one of only two people who can deny Geraint Thomas

:12:27.:12:31.

the Gold medal for Wales. It will be very close but Dennis might just

:12:32.:12:37.

about make it. Towards the line, he keeps that advantage over Geraint

:12:38.:12:41.

Thomas. And Dennis crosses the line. 47.51. Geraint Thomas into the

:12:42.:12:46.

silver medal position. Ennis will have to wait until Alex Dowsett

:12:47.:12:52.

crosses the line to find out if that is good enough for Gold. Three

:12:53.:12:59.

quarters of an hour of hard work and four seconds in it, and only this

:13:00.:13:04.

man can spoil the party. It will come down to the corners. It was so

:13:05.:13:11.

close at the less cheque. Dashed checkpoint. -- checkpoint. Can he

:13:12.:13:26.

find five seconds from somewhere in a relatively short space of time? We

:13:27.:13:31.

have rarely seen anybody dig as deep as Rohan Dennis just did. He was

:13:32.:13:38.

trying so hard. Alex Dowsett has his work cut out. He always looks smooth

:13:39.:13:42.

and collected but he lost time over the last two chat points. Can he

:13:43.:13:50.

finish strongly? -- checkpoints. I do not think he can. He will be

:13:51.:13:56.

outside here. It will be close. He will fight to the line. It is going

:13:57.:14:03.

to be close. It might not be close enough for Alex Dowsett. He has to

:14:04.:14:07.

lay it on the line around the park at Glasgow Green. Look at his face!

:14:08.:14:16.

Alex Dowsett. Straining in pursuit of Gold. Trying to go one better

:14:17.:14:21.

than in Delhi. Four years ago when he was beaten by David Millar. In

:14:22.:14:25.

the blistering heat on that jewel carriageway. He was heavy on the

:14:26.:14:32.

brakes on that corner. And -- that can cost you seconds. He needs every

:14:33.:14:36.

bit here. Round the finishing circuit. It is going to be close. It

:14:37.:14:42.

is going to be close. A sprint for the line, with Alex Dowsett and

:14:43.:14:47.

Rohan Dennis. He has finished strongly. We said this last downhill

:14:48.:14:53.

section would suit him at than anybody else but he has not taken

:14:54.:14:59.

advantage of that style to poll it back. What a finish this could be.

:15:00.:15:05.

He is definitely within a chance of the Gold medal. It is going to come

:15:06.:15:12.

down to this sprint. Can he do it or will Gold go to Australia? 250

:15:13.:15:17.

metres to go. Alex Dowsett grits his teeth, is this a ride for Vic three?

:15:18.:15:23.

I think it is. Alex Dowsett towards the line, the last couple of metres,

:15:24.:15:28.

he has pulled it out of the bag! Silver four years ago, Gold in

:15:29.:15:32.

Glasgow for Alex Dowsett. For England. Just under ten seconds

:15:33.:15:38.

faster than rowing Dennis of Australia. -- Rohan Dennis. It has

:15:39.:15:47.

won him the Gold medal. Fantastic and Alex Dowsett. That is an

:15:48.:15:51.

experienced time trial. He did not think about the others. He allowed

:15:52.:15:56.

himself to lose time over the middle section. He had to keep something

:15:57.:16:00.

back for the river and that is what he did. And he took some time back

:16:01.:16:05.

but also a huge amount out of the ten seconds.

:16:06.:16:20.

It was mostly downhill from the 32 kilometre mark. He absolutely flew

:16:21.:16:25.

over the closing kilometres. Here comes Luke Durbridge for Australia.

:16:26.:16:31.

Not his day. His day will come. A real powerhouse of a rider. Still

:16:32.:16:38.

just 23 but Durbridge not in contention for the medals this

:16:39.:16:43.

time. He has come out of this a little bit tired. The pedigree is

:16:44.:16:48.

there but a bit fatigued. Still a strong performance in the top ten.

:16:49.:16:59.

Absolutely. A high-quality field. A big variation in the times for the

:17:00.:17:02.

riders. 60 riders taking part here. There is Alex Dowsett. What a ride.

:17:03.:17:08.

Here comes Michael Hutchinson for Northern Ireland. Lastly experienced

:17:09.:17:18.

over 30 national time trial results under his belt. He has had a very

:17:19.:17:28.

solid performance but certainly not near the podium. It is not a great

:17:29.:17:33.

course for Michael Hutchinson. He prefers a flatter one as we saw out

:17:34.:17:40.

in Delhi. This is Berry much a road man circuit. Here comes Michael

:17:41.:17:47.

Hutchinson. A little over 50 minutes, the time. He crosses the

:17:48.:17:55.

line. His time will be good enough to move him into 11th place on the

:17:56.:18:04.

leaderboard. That was a ride which certainly hurt. We are waiting for

:18:05.:18:19.

David Millar now. Here comes David Millar. Not the result they were

:18:20.:18:24.

hoping for. His career heads towards its close. The pride is still

:18:25.:18:34.

driving him on in the final few metres of this ride. He has had many

:18:35.:18:43.

great days on the bike. Sadly for him, this was not one of them. It is

:18:44.:18:49.

still a good ride and eighth place for David Millar. Two and a quarter

:18:50.:19:03.

minutes down on Alex Dowsett. Alex Dowsett was beaten into second place

:19:04.:19:07.

by David Millar four years ago. But he came on so close in the closing

:19:08.:19:12.

stages of this ride. Just as it looked to be slipping away, he

:19:13.:19:16.

really turned it around in the closing half dozen kilometres or so.

:19:17.:19:21.

We have watched it all day. As long as you are in touch within ten

:19:22.:19:25.

seconds, it is all possible. It keeps ebbing and flowing, depending

:19:26.:19:29.

on which part of the course suits which rider. He will have looked at

:19:30.:19:34.

the course carefully, knew how to spend his effort and knew how much

:19:35.:19:37.

damage he could do on the run back into town. He turned around the best

:19:38.:19:43.

part of 15 seconds from the final check. Quite an incredible ride. We

:19:44.:19:53.

know what he's capable after the individual victory in the jury to

:19:54.:20:00.

tally. That was a tough course in Tuscany. He beat Bradley Wiggins

:20:01.:20:06.

that day. He really delivered there, Alex Dowsett. A frustrating

:20:07.:20:13.

summer. He was recovering from illness. He is back on top here with

:20:14.:20:20.

a superb ride. Geraint Thomas had a very strong

:20:21.:20:43.

ride, back from the Tour de France. Some big names further down the

:20:44.:20:50.

field, Luke Durbridge is another one from the Tour. The field contained

:20:51.:21:00.

60 riders but there was one who was the class of that field and that is

:21:01.:21:04.

Alex Dowsett who wins the gold medal for England.

:21:05.:21:12.

Quite a remarkable race. It looks like he had perhaps gone out too

:21:13.:21:18.

fast, too soon. Geraint Thomas, after three weeks on the Tour de

:21:19.:21:22.

France, what a heart he has on the bike. I remember last year in the

:21:23.:21:26.

Tour de France he had a broken pelvis but rode through for his

:21:27.:21:29.

team. We thought perhaps he was focusing on the road race but he

:21:30.:21:33.

cycled his heart out, gave everything he had for third place.

:21:34.:21:39.

And Rohan Dennis who was perhaps the favourite beforehand, again, finding

:21:40.:21:43.

a really good effort. I think we can go to jail now. She has been

:21:44.:21:53.

speaking to David Millar. -- we can go to Jill Douglas now. In fact, I

:21:54.:21:57.

have a handful of cyclists here. I will start with the gold-medal man,

:21:58.:22:02.

Alex Dowsett. No one wanted that more today than I did. A silver in

:22:03.:22:07.

Delhi, disappointment at not being picked for the Tour de France. I

:22:08.:22:12.

have been angry this whole month. I usually pull something out of the

:22:13.:22:18.

bag when I am really, really angry. So it is pretty special that. Let's

:22:19.:22:25.

have a word with you as well. You were in that gold medal position for

:22:26.:22:30.

a moment or two but this fellow was able to pull you back. Yes, I was of

:22:31.:22:36.

its prized on the radio when I could hear five seconds up. Then he just

:22:37.:22:43.

beat me again. A little bit disappointed, to be honest. Second

:22:44.:22:48.

every time this year. It is getting a bit annoying. I am sure you will

:22:49.:22:53.

come out fighting after that. And they word for you, Geraint, one of

:22:54.:22:57.

the quotes of the Tour de France was let's smash it and see what happens

:22:58.:23:03.

and I think that is what you did there. I was a bit unsure what to

:23:04.:23:07.

expect today really. Fortunately, I was just able, I just felt strong. I

:23:08.:23:14.

did not feel zippy or fresh but I was able to smash it. I think for

:23:15.:23:18.

the next time trial, I will send him some flowers and make sure he is

:23:19.:23:23.

happy and maybe we will have a chance! You guys have to go to the

:23:24.:23:27.

podium. I will let you go. I will have a word with this guy. You have

:23:28.:23:33.

had to ruling the short Commonwealth crown but what an amazing reception

:23:34.:23:38.

you have had here at Glasgow Green. It is like the Tour de France.

:23:39.:23:41.

Scottish flags everywhere and everyone sharing my name. There were

:23:42.:23:47.

brief moments, it was amazing. Not your day to day. When did you

:23:48.:23:51.

realise perhaps this would not be your day? When a motorbike went

:23:52.:23:57.

ahead. When I realised there was no point in watching me any more! I am

:23:58.:24:03.

not as good as I was when I was younger. This is a younger man's

:24:04.:24:08.

game. Do you think if you had ridden the Tour, you would have been

:24:09.:24:15.

fresher? Stronger but not fresher. You cannot predict. You can see with

:24:16.:24:20.

Geraint, he is on his hands and knees and gets third. I was very

:24:21.:24:25.

realistic about today. My time trialling has not been so good for

:24:26.:24:28.

the last couple of years. We look forward to seeing you on Sunday.

:24:29.:24:36.

Yes, we look forward to seeing David Millar on Sunday and Geraint Thomas.

:24:37.:24:41.

First of all, Chris, what a ride from Alex Dowsett. It was an

:24:42.:24:46.

incredibly polished performance. He had a bit of everything there. He

:24:47.:24:51.

stayed with them on the climbs. He had to look after himself through

:24:52.:24:55.

the technical section and then drove down the descent. Peopled back 15

:24:56.:25:03.

seconds which is quite remarkable. And Rohan Dennis, perhaps the more

:25:04.:25:08.

measured of the medallists. He faded towards the end. You could see it in

:25:09.:25:12.

his body language. The cadence goes down, the gear goes up as you force

:25:13.:25:16.

it to happen, but he fought courageously all the way to the line

:25:17.:25:22.

there. And talking of courage, Geraint produces a ride like that!

:25:23.:25:28.

You could see he really wanted it and he really dug deep. Dowsett and

:25:29.:25:35.

Dennis, they were going to be the powerhouses on the way down. He

:25:36.:25:39.

really needed to make a big offer in the middle. All three of them fought

:25:40.:25:45.

courageously. And a word on David Millar, he was quite phlegmatic as

:25:46.:25:50.

he always is in his interviews. I was quite disappointed for David. He

:25:51.:25:55.

really wanted to go out on what was his last major competition and do

:25:56.:25:58.

something, but physically, it was not there. He knows how to handle

:25:59.:26:03.

the bike technically but the legs were not there. Chris, thanks.

:26:04.:26:10.

Jason, it is back to you. Congratulations to Alex Dowsett but

:26:11.:26:14.

you do have to say well done to Geraint Thomas, straight into the

:26:15.:26:17.

men's time trial after the Tour de France. But some going. That is it

:26:18.:26:23.

from me. I will hand you over to Hazel Irvine. Do you know that there

:26:24.:26:28.

are some in our presentation team who are women and men of many

:26:29.:26:33.

talents. Do give iPod, one of our co-presenters on BBC Three, I found

:26:34.:26:37.

out that not only will he be presenting programmes on Sunday

:26:38.:26:41.

afternoon, he will then grab his drumsticks and go to Hampden Park

:26:42.:26:47.

and line up as a drama -- Dougie Vipond. I am a super fan of Deacon

:26:48.:26:53.

blue. I think he is arranging a meeting with Ricky Ross for May. I

:26:54.:27:01.

think it will be fantastic. So many talented men and women on BBC Three

:27:02.:27:04.

broadcasting alongside us. Not only a world-class line-up at Hampden

:27:05.:27:08.

Park. We will also have Kylie Minogue, Lulu and so many others but

:27:09.:27:13.

also world-class performances in the gymnastics that we are all about

:27:14.:27:18.

today. It is the hydro, here we come again.

:27:19.:27:33.

Max Whitlock is the man of the moment.

:27:34.:27:51.

The uneven bars was the event that Beth Tweddle once ruled. Rebecca

:27:52.:27:57.

Downie would like to inherit the crown. She will have a tough tussle

:27:58.:28:05.

with the Aussies. One of the undisputed stars of the games will

:28:06.:28:09.

be Max Whitlock. We will see him later but we also have the 200

:28:10.:28:13.

metres this evening. I mention Max Whitlock. He's going for a treble

:28:14.:28:23.

gold today, after a gold in the individual all-around. The team

:28:24.:28:25.

event is over at the Hydro. There could be a sack full of medals

:28:26.:28:31.

because he is also qualified for six events. We have the floor, pommel

:28:32.:28:35.

and rings final for the men's and the vault, and uneven bars for the

:28:36.:28:41.

women. There could be a highly profitable afternoon in store for

:28:42.:28:47.

the home nations gymnasts. Max Whitlock was the top qualifier for

:28:48.:28:55.

the floor event. Daniel Keatings has two silvers for Scotland so far. He

:28:56.:28:59.

has qualified in third place. Kristian Thomas comes in for the

:29:00.:29:05.

injured Sam Oldham. Over we go and we will join Mitch Fenner, Christine

:29:06.:29:07.

Still and Max Baker. It is very important to make the two

:29:08.:29:51.

second hold, which he does. That was a good routine, a good

:29:52.:30:32.

start for him. He is putting everything into this. Not many

:30:33.:30:37.

deductions. What a benchmark to have set. Not much room for error, Chris?

:30:38.:30:45.

Not much room. Like we were talking earlier, you have got to married

:30:46.:30:53.

difficulty with quality. If anything, you would say the New

:30:54.:30:57.

Zealand team have aired safety first, but they have been very

:30:58.:31:01.

classy in their performances, men and women. So, lovely technique.

:31:02.:31:10.

Really keeps the head well fixed. Spots the floor and extends out.

:31:11.:31:14.

That was a lovely example of how you should extend the legs out before

:31:15.:31:17.

you role. expect his East score to be very

:31:18.:31:40.

good. -- E score. Very precise. Technically. Somebody has had a word

:31:41.:31:48.

in the camp and it is showing here. The difference between two

:31:49.:31:52.

Commonwealth Games is very noticeable. He scored 14.3 in

:31:53.:32:06.

qualification. He has gone up. 14.55. Execution is close to nine.

:32:07.:32:17.

Very impressive. That could sneak into bronze. A sterling effort for

:32:18.:32:30.

Wales over the last couple of days. Clinton Purnell. 25 years old. Very

:32:31.:32:40.

experienced gymnast. This will not be the last time you see him because

:32:41.:32:44.

he has also made the pommelhorse final and the rings final. The fifth

:32:45.:32:52.

highest qualifier on the floor. Nicely kicked out.

:32:53.:32:58.

A double twist. A half turn. So good to see him working at this level.

:32:59.:33:05.

And consistently. Successfully into the twisting

:33:06.:33:23.

element. So far, very good. A bit shaky. Those handstands are so

:33:24.:33:27.

important. Working with great control and pace.

:33:28.:33:52.

Secure, and he is holding his focus after a long, long competition.

:33:53.:34:04.

Clinton Purnell! The score to be is 14.550. Just posted by David Bishop.

:34:05.:34:13.

And he has gone a long way to achieving a better score, Chris.

:34:14.:34:19.

Yes, he has. A similar type of difficulty, he qualified with. It

:34:20.:34:24.

was very good, there were no noticeable errors. No big steps and

:34:25.:34:33.

landing, nothing. He punches a floor. He is landing the more simple

:34:34.:34:42.

half turn -- he punches the floor. This was very impressive. The blind

:34:43.:34:49.

twist landing. The 1.5 into the full twist. So well rehearsed. Let's give

:34:50.:34:56.

an idea of the kind of deductions the judges will be giving. He has

:34:57.:35:02.

slightly loose legs. A lack of height on each tumble. It depends on

:35:03.:35:12.

the competition sometimes. Steps on landing, but he hardly had any of

:35:13.:35:23.

those. Clinton Purnell. 14.366. Just behind David Bishop.

:35:24.:35:34.

Kristian Thomas for some old who injured his left foot. -- some old.

:35:35.:35:43.

But he did live I with the six highest score on the floor. -- he

:35:44.:35:51.

did qualify. He is big but he handles his size very well. Arabian.

:35:52.:36:05.

He lost that. You must landing. -- he lost the landing. But straight

:36:06.:36:18.

back into a controlled series. It takes your breath away.

:36:19.:36:38.

Very nice and very low. Showing strength as well as control.

:36:39.:36:51.

He started with a pike and he finished with a top. Very

:36:52.:36:59.

uncharacteristic to roost -- to lose his footing. But such a stylish and

:37:00.:37:10.

powerful gymnast. Heat puffed his cheeks a bit and he did not do it

:37:11.:37:14.

well in qualification either -- he puffed. I think he lost where he

:37:15.:37:21.

was, but that is very unusual. We will see what did happen. That is

:37:22.:37:29.

the first tumble, so effective, that kick out. It is this tumble here.

:37:30.:37:39.

You can see he just flicked his head and he lost as orientation.

:37:40.:37:41.

You can see he just flicked his head and he lost as He stopped at 1.5 and

:37:42.:37:45.

he thought, I will put another half in. His head was wild. This is very

:37:46.:37:56.

clean. Very confident finish. I think he normally does 1.5 and that

:37:57.:38:02.

is what happened, he did not open out at the right time. It did look

:38:03.:38:09.

as if he stalled at the 1.5 and the extra did not work. Such a shame for

:38:10.:38:18.

Christian. He knows is attempt at a medal is out of the window. -- his

:38:19.:38:22.

attempt. He will put this down to experience. It shows you how easy it

:38:23.:38:30.

is to lose your way. When you see somebody like Max Whitlock twisting,

:38:31.:38:34.

you think, how does he know at the right moment to break out? 13.366.

:38:35.:38:46.

Thomas is in third. Another chance for a Gold medal for England's Matt

:38:47.:38:55.

-- Max Whitlock. 21 your old European champion. He took Gold in

:38:56.:39:02.

the all-around final. He missed a twist. It was square around after

:39:03.:39:10.

the full twist setup. That was very impressive. 3.5. A half turn out. To

:39:11.:39:25.

make absolutely sure of where he is. Posh hard... There you go! So many

:39:26.:39:31.

gymnasts have tried to imitate that, it is not easy. Lovely control.

:39:32.:39:42.

Short diagonal, they have to include that. One and three.

:39:43.:39:57.

He just wraps those in like it is nothing! Superb technician. And a

:39:58.:40:11.

triple twist. What a performance! And he is just not faltering.

:40:12.:40:16.

Breathtaking gymnastics, every single move was never in doubt. And

:40:17.:40:22.

I think he has become quite a bit more stylish. That was where he

:40:23.:40:28.

perhaps was lacking. He had untidy legs. That was very well performed.

:40:29.:40:36.

The mind boggles! How can a human do that? Only one other guy in the

:40:37.:40:40.

world can do that, the Japanese man. He has a particular way with

:40:41.:40:52.

his twisting. He almost does not set the somersault up at all, he is so

:40:53.:40:58.

powerful. The snap out of the round of, getting his chest up, he does

:40:59.:41:07.

not have to lift his arms. Very rare to see such solid technique. A lot

:41:08.:41:11.

of them just amble through it, but very good technique and that is why

:41:12.:41:17.

he can do this. 3.5 twist. Another somersault. Three and a half twists!

:41:18.:41:25.

He just throws the arm. He takes the weight on the right. Transfers very

:41:26.:41:34.

quickly. That is so, so impressive! He scraped the floor, but forgive

:41:35.:41:38.

him that! That will be the little deductions. It is like a gymnastic

:41:39.:41:48.

robot! A robot with feeling. Unbelievable! Max Whitlock. 15.533.

:41:49.:42:01.

That is the score to beat. This lad has certainly got some

:42:02.:42:26.

moves. Can he contain that power? That is the challenge ahead. Kumar.

:42:27.:42:33.

I hope so, he has not hit it well all week. He just put a foot out.

:42:34.:42:45.

But very impressive stuff. He made the two and a half from it. He

:42:46.:42:50.

frightened us to death in Delhi. But he has had control since he has

:42:51.:43:02.

settled down. Very confident gymnast.

:43:03.:43:08.

He is measured. He has got the skills. He put his hands down. That

:43:09.:43:26.

is a landing deduction, he did not need to do it. He made sure of that,

:43:27.:43:31.

he said. And this is the final tumble.

:43:32.:43:36.

It is a pity because good skills, he just put his hands down for no

:43:37.:43:47.

apparent reason. This was not to be. It is difficult to follow Max

:43:48.:43:52.

Whitlock, let's be honest. Just a different class completely of

:43:53.:43:55.

gymnastics. A similar opening tumble. , -- not the opening tumble,

:43:56.:44:04.

this is the link tumble. But this is fantastic skill. -- the opening

:44:05.:44:11.

tumble. The next one, when he went for the two and a half twists, Max

:44:12.:44:16.

was completely round and he was three quarters. This was a bit

:44:17.:44:24.

better. But this was so strange, that will probably cost him a medal.

:44:25.:44:29.

Technically, that was a landing. That should be one marked deduct

:44:30.:44:34.

did. I imagine it will be. Dashed deducted. -- deducted. Such a shame,

:44:35.:44:42.

a medal for India would have been very significant. They may be kind

:44:43.:44:50.

and they may not give him a hallmark. -- one mark. That was

:44:51.:45:00.

interesting in slow motion of the two and a half. He looks over the

:45:01.:45:04.

shoulder. 7.3 for execution. The score is

:45:05.:45:22.

down. 13 point eight. Dashed 13.8. He goes into fourth and still a lot

:45:23.:45:26.

of gymnastics this final. Dashed 13.8. The Jack -- the next gymnast

:45:27.:45:38.

now. The 25-year-old. He also made the vault final and he squeezed into

:45:39.:45:45.

the top eight. 14.3666 was his qualifying score. Very light.

:45:46.:46:00.

That is very nice. A very light gymnast, very quick across the

:46:01.:46:09.

floor. that the shoulders are on the

:46:10.:46:37.

landings. It is very busy. He was light, he was quick. And he

:46:38.:47:05.

is capable of potentially squeezing up into medal contention. There are

:47:06.:47:15.

two gymnasts still to go. I liked the tempo of that routine. Those

:47:16.:47:25.

starters around will be quite costly. I would be surprised if he

:47:26.:47:30.

went ahead of David Bishop. He twists very well indeed.

:47:31.:47:44.

That was the best one. Just a little the blend with where the arms are to

:47:45.:47:58.

steady the landing. This guy is on his way, he has a lovely twisting

:47:59.:48:00.

technique. The currently do, Max Whitlock. He

:48:01.:48:31.

leads David Bishop and Clinton Purnell currently in third place --

:48:32.:48:32.

the current leader, Max Whitlock. The question is, is Dan Keatings

:48:33.:49:02.

going up on a six difficulty that he posted in qualification. These days,

:49:03.:49:09.

the yardstick is a six difficulty, did that well and take it from

:49:10.:49:17.

there. It is thing for Wah Toon Hoe. -- fifth.

:49:18.:49:28.

So now it is Dan Keatings for Scotland.

:49:29.:49:53.

Here's not messing about. He is fairly zooming across the floor.

:49:54.:50:07.

I think that was out. As long as he is on the line, it is OK. He does

:50:08.:50:22.

the combination into Russian, very nicely done. And you would expect it

:50:23.:50:27.

from someone who has taken the European gold medal on pommel.

:50:28.:50:46.

Keep your focus, Dan Keatings 's. A little skip to the side. He was in

:50:47.:50:58.

control of that. Well, he zipped through it to get as much difficulty

:50:59.:51:04.

as he possibly could. But the bad news that a red flag did go up. He

:51:05.:51:11.

was out but how costly will that be? A score of 14.366 for a bronze.

:51:12.:51:21.

Well, that was a classy routine. Lots of energy to it. .1 for

:51:22.:51:25.

stepping out and that tumble had a bit of a deduction on the landing,

:51:26.:51:30.

didn't it? But I think that will score quite well. I do not think it

:51:31.:51:35.

will beat Max Whitlock but I would not be surprised if it was the

:51:36.:51:41.

second-highest score so far. I think he is safe. He is in a medal. Look

:51:42.:51:46.

at the way he is really piling it in there. It is this relatively

:51:47.:51:52.

straightforward double twist. He almost rushed into that tumble

:51:53.:51:58.

little bit quickly. I like this as well. It is a gymnastic link they

:51:59.:52:04.

have to include. What was clever here is if he had parked at their

:52:05.:52:08.

his feet would have been out of the area so he walks forward slightly

:52:09.:52:22.

and then drops his feet down. Lovely to see him working like this. I like

:52:23.:52:28.

to see routines that show a variety of twisting and rotating skills. He

:52:29.:52:33.

shows us a clue that there. Twisting and rotating. Two twists, two

:52:34.:52:46.

somersaults. Well, if you see a number two on the side of the

:52:47.:52:49.

scoreboard, he is guaranteed a medal. It is third at the moment.

:52:50.:52:59.

There is one gymnast still to go. It is that 0.1 out which is the

:53:00.:53:08.

difference between second and third. Will the Canadian upset the home

:53:09.:53:14.

nation party? Scott Morgan, 25 years old. He has a difficulty value of

:53:15.:53:18.

6.4. This is power personified. He just

:53:19.:53:36.

floated upwards, a double straight, is punch one and he lifted. And then

:53:37.:53:44.

open the parachute to land. Dear, oh dear, oh dear, he means business.

:53:45.:53:57.

Significantly controlled here. That is a nice pace. He will take a

:53:58.:54:07.

little breather. He did not really kick it out but managed to roll down

:54:08.:54:11.

from the soldiers which is what the judges will be looking for. Here's

:54:12.:54:18.

wrapping in the twists. He is really meaning business here. Worth every

:54:19.:54:29.

10th. The absolute precision on the twisting double. I tell you what,

:54:30.:54:35.

that difficulty must go up. Surely, that must be a medal? The question

:54:36.:54:44.

is, what colour? David Bishop knows he is guaranteed a medal because he

:54:45.:54:49.

is up in second. That has to be a medal. I think it will come close to

:54:50.:54:55.

Whitlock's score. Whitlock scored 15.533. That was super work, Chris.

:54:56.:55:04.

Very clean and really good variety in this routine. Into the punch, one

:55:05.:55:19.

and a quarter to a prone position. There were not any landing

:55:20.:55:25.

deductions there. From a style perspective, he is not in the same

:55:26.:55:31.

class as Whitlock. Know, especially when you see the slow motion. There

:55:32.:55:36.

are some bent legs. But the judges do not have slow motion. They do not

:55:37.:55:42.

but I think you can see the bent legs. He has just piled it in. But

:55:43.:55:57.

there is room for deduction. While we are talking difficulty, Max

:55:58.:56:04.

posted a difficulty score of 6.7. I have not got my calculator but I

:56:05.:56:09.

think he has stepped up from 6.4. That was amazing, the way he

:56:10.:56:16.

launched and kicked out. In my eyes, I think Max just has the edge. Oh,

:56:17.:56:27.

yes. I would say so. Our debate will go on but I think the judges have

:56:28.:56:33.

come to a decision. There it is. It is silver medal for Scott Morgan.

:56:34.:56:41.

David Bishop will take the bronze medal, pushing Daniel Keatings from

:56:42.:56:46.

Scotland down into fourth. What a floor final. Cracking. That is

:56:47.:56:51.

world-class performance. Less than .1 ahead of Dan Keatings.

:56:52.:57:15.

The step out on the floor lost him the medal. Potentially the circle of

:57:16.:57:23.

the arms could have done that. Yes, he rushed a little bit, Dan

:57:24.:57:29.

Keatings. But what a performance from David Bishop from New Zealand.

:57:30.:57:32.

We have been talking about how impressed we have been with the New

:57:33.:57:36.

Zealanders and the work they have put in, they have reaped their

:57:37.:57:44.

reward with a bronze medal on floor. Somerby has had a talking to. There

:57:45.:57:48.

is Max Whitlock, confirmation. There is your leader, Max Whitlock, the

:57:49.:57:55.

gold medallist. And yet another gold medal, that is gold medal number 34

:57:56.:58:02.

Max Whitlock. Will the medal count continue for him? Surely. How many

:58:03.:58:11.

finals has he got? He could potentially have six. That is to

:58:12.:58:25.

restrict. -- that is terrific. I did say David Bishop could potentially

:58:26.:58:33.

get bronze. Yes, you did. And Morgan, the last gymnast, he had a

:58:34.:58:38.

long wait and that can play on your mind, Chris, because if you are

:58:39.:58:42.

debating Shaddai up my difficulty or not, it can be a tough ten or 15

:58:43.:58:51.

minutes? Yes, it could be. The thing is, I think he thought he could not

:58:52.:58:56.

beat Max. He knows he has not quite got that difficulty. But with the

:58:57.:59:02.

difficulty he has got, he could take the others. I think you went for

:59:03.:59:08.

that safety. Just looking at Max on that 3.5 twist, the shoulders were

:59:09.:59:11.

absolutely square. Amazing awareness. Well, Max Whitlock

:59:12.:59:20.

without doubt, the gold medallist. Scott Morgan takes silver and David

:59:21.:59:24.

Bishop from New Zealand is more than happy with bronze.

:59:25.:59:35.

STUDIO: Yes, Max Whitlock's third gold medal means he has one more

:59:36.:59:42.

gold medals than anyone else at these games. The golden hat-trick,

:59:43.:59:47.

England's 40th at these games and he has still got two more chances to

:59:48.:59:52.

come this afternoon. The 24-year-old from Hemel Hempstead is making

:59:53.:59:57.

himself at home on the top step of the podium. Another wonderful

:59:58.:59:59.

performance from Max Whitlock. that. It is a major achievement but

:00:00.:01:34.

I have to focus on the next events. It looked like you are showboating

:01:35.:01:37.

at one stage. You are just incredibly talented, how much

:01:38.:01:41.

confidence does that give you going into the other apparatus? A lot of

:01:42.:01:45.

confidence and it makes me chill out.

:01:46.:01:50.

I can enjoy the rest of the experience and stay as relaxed as I

:01:51.:01:56.

can. Two left and a battle coming up. Are you looking forward to it?

:01:57.:02:03.

I am really looking forward to it, they are great competitors and

:02:04.:02:06.

hopefully it will be a great competition but I just want to be

:02:07.:02:11.

happy with what I do. Good luck with the next two.

:02:12.:02:16.

Pommelhorse and the rings final this afternoon for him. There was also a

:02:17.:02:22.

golden hat trick on offer today for the new store of the English team

:02:23.:02:26.

and British gymnastics between macro. She is 16, fourth at seven,

:02:27.:02:32.

but she took the title last night and pulsate in style. -- for Claudia

:02:33.:02:43.

Fragapane. Wonderful scenes last night. And now she has another busy

:02:44.:02:49.

afternoon because she's about to take part in the women's vault

:02:50.:02:56.

final. She was the top qualifier the other day on the opening day of

:02:57.:03:01.

qualification and also included is like. And Kirsten Beckett is also

:03:02.:03:09.

fancied. Kelly Simm looking for her first medal. And good to see Emma

:03:10.:03:16.

White in the final. Back to the Hydro now with our commentary team.

:03:17.:03:25.

The gymnasts have been warming up outside, no time here in the arena

:03:26.:03:31.

which makes all the difference for those gymnasts going later. So

:03:32.:03:37.

George Rose Brown first from Australia. The sixth highest

:03:38.:03:45.

qualifier. A tall, elegant gymnast, beautiful style. The straight twist

:03:46.:03:52.

on the vault, simple but beautifully performed.

:03:53.:04:05.

This is the first of two. She will have to make a different entry to

:04:06.:04:34.

the vault. Still looking for a similar difficulty value of around

:04:35.:04:40.

five. Lovely contact. Look at the technique in the twist. Oddie macro

:04:41.:04:45.

together. Fully extended. Lovely style in the end -- legs together.

:04:46.:05:01.

Georgia Rose Brown with her second vault. Her first was 14.1. Her

:05:02.:05:08.

second now. Georgia Rose Brown saluting the

:05:09.:05:24.

judges ready for her second vault. This is slightly easier. 4.6, value.

:05:25.:05:32.

Interesting vault. A half turn. Front somersault.

:05:33.:05:46.

She has to make sure she is square and she did that very well. A half

:05:47.:05:56.

turn, very effective. You have to be very quick on this turn. Very

:05:57.:06:03.

square. Well done, good vault. Again, not a lot of deduction.

:06:04.:06:12.

Really strong. A bit of line. -- off-line. That is quite often the

:06:13.:06:19.

problem. She does not quite get square as she makes that turn. So

:06:20.:06:31.

quick of the top. -- off the top. I thought she was square but slightly

:06:32.:06:41.

to the left hand side. An average will be taken. 13.833 is the final

:06:42.:06:47.

score for Georgia Rose Brown, from Australia.

:06:48.:06:54.

The second gymnast now. Listen to the crowd. Scotland's Emma White.

:06:55.:07:09.

She was sixth on this apparatus in the Commonwealth Games in 2010. A

:07:10.:07:14.

strong and powerful approach. Good technique. Beautiful extension. Just

:07:15.:07:30.

one step. Good vault for number one. A lot of power and determination.

:07:31.:07:36.

Just as she has approached this competition. One hand is slightly in

:07:37.:07:49.

front of the other on contact. But very nice and very clean. Very good

:07:50.:07:56.

alignment. Good and straight. Landing as you are meant to, one

:07:57.:08:03.

foot either side of the red line. I thoroughly -- she thoroughly enjoyed

:08:04.:08:06.

her experience. She is making the most of this. She needs to stretch

:08:07.:08:16.

at this point, keep stretching. A full twist. The shoulders come up.

:08:17.:08:26.

This is a battle of the execution score. Brown's best execution was

:08:27.:08:37.

9.1. This is eight point eight. -- 8.8, execution. In qualification,

:08:38.:08:47.

she did a 4.8. This is the same. She needs to execute this is precisely

:08:48.:08:57.

as possible. -- as precisely. This is generally the less favoured

:08:58.:09:04.

vault. That was a shame, the big step. That was a very nice vault.

:09:05.:09:14.

Half turn. She punches really high. Pike front somersault. There is

:09:15.:09:23.

nothing more she can do now. She has to wait and hope that she scores

:09:24.:09:32.

over 13.833. She gets extra points for the pike shape. Similar vault

:09:33.:09:39.

but in the pike shape. Very nice. She just overcooked it at the end. I

:09:40.:09:49.

watched her in training and she landed on straight legs. I could see

:09:50.:09:56.

she was anxious not to allow that to happen again. Taking into

:09:57.:10:03.

consideration that they do train beforehand, having a bad session can

:10:04.:10:06.

play on the mind, Chris. Yes, it can. Which he performed that well.

:10:07.:10:12.

She just looked on her knees to early. -- took ten. They will give

:10:13.:10:19.

her the four, eight, but that propelled her forwards and it

:10:20.:10:26.

increased her rotation. Emma White, silver medal position at the moment.

:10:27.:10:34.

The. Behind the current leader, Georgia Rose Brown. -- she is

:10:35.:10:43.

behind. Kirsten Beckett could get into the medals. She qualified with

:10:44.:10:46.

the third highest score. Gymnast from South Africa. Also in the floor

:10:47.:10:57.

final and the bars final. A very powerful and purposeful gymnast.

:10:58.:10:59.

Very nicely done. One and a half twist, that increases the score.

:11:00.:11:10.

Quite a large debt forward at the end. How costly world that he? If

:11:11.:11:17.

you step and you join your feet, that is a .3. If she had stepped

:11:18.:11:26.

back to the landing place, that would have been a .1. That is a.

:11:27.:11:33.

Full. Very good contact, the feet low. -- that is a fall point. The

:11:34.:11:58.

hardest vault we have seen so far. They go up in increments of three.

:11:59.:12:06.

5.3 is given. The execution is over nine. Second vault is still to come.

:12:07.:12:15.

She got good height and flight and they do deductions for a lack of

:12:16.:12:16.

height. This is good and powerful. they do deductions for a lack of

:12:17.:12:22.

height. This is A lot riding on this vault. Really strong. Quite a lot of

:12:23.:12:32.

difficult than the flip entry. She looks very relieved. I doubt she

:12:33.:12:37.

does those many times in competition. Using that approach, it

:12:38.:12:43.

is harder to get the height you need, Chris. It is, so it is given a

:12:44.:12:50.

greater tariff. She cannot contact with the feet so low when you make

:12:51.:12:58.

the half turn like that. Some gymnasts have a wide base with the

:12:59.:13:02.

arms and some quite close, and she was quite close, I thought. Quite

:13:03.:13:10.

good technique, isn't it? The feet are already quite high above you so

:13:11.:13:14.

you cannot rocket off the top the same way. That is why she is trying

:13:15.:13:21.

to create that wide base. To give the conversion upwards. Enough

:13:22.:13:29.

airtime for the full twist. She would want a bit more if she was

:13:30.:13:33.

putting an extra half on that twist. Good vault, I thought. That is two

:13:34.:13:46.

vaults done. 13.833 is the score to beat, and she does it. 14.1664

:13:47.:13:57.

Kirsten Beckett. -- 14.166, Kirsten Beckett. That could push the leading

:13:58.:14:13.

score into third. A powerful gymnast, very good indeed. Brought

:14:14.:14:24.

in to help the England team for the rest of the Commonwealth Games and

:14:25.:14:28.

it worked a couple of days ago. Total aggression in the approach.

:14:29.:14:37.

Double twist. Sliding to one side. To get two twists, her feet must

:14:38.:14:45.

have been low on contact. Very good. A very fast gymnast. When she

:14:46.:14:48.

contacts the platform, her elbows locked. She bounces off and up. That

:14:49.:14:55.

gives her the time for the two twists. And it really is an all or

:14:56.:15:01.

nothing about, it can go so wrong, especially at such a high level. I

:15:02.:15:11.

said it before, if you match airtime with rotation and twisting... And

:15:12.:15:16.

she does it very well indeed. Yes. There will be a deduction for the

:15:17.:15:23.

chest down but it is so fast and dynamic, it is difficult for judges

:15:24.:15:30.

sometimes to see that. She has gone up slightly, 14.633. She could be on

:15:31.:15:39.

target for a medal here. If she can land this next vault. A five

:15:40.:15:49.

difficulty. So slightly easier. She really needs to focus, it has to be

:15:50.:15:55.

precise. Very well done. The front somersault with a half turn, that

:15:56.:16:00.

was a great vault. And that is going to challenge. It definitely will.

:16:01.:16:08.

She is coached by Keith and Debbie Richardson, Simm. Very experienced

:16:09.:16:13.

coaches. Once again, the aggression. A half turn. Two before have done

:16:14.:16:19.

this and she did it with a twist. Plenty of attack. I mean business!

:16:20.:16:33.

They do not get the credit they should do. It is very complex

:16:34.:16:44.

twisting for these gymnasts. You can see the extension through the

:16:45.:16:50.

shoulders really powers up. That is what is missing in so many vaults.

:16:51.:16:56.

That was good vaulting. Consistently difficult. And consistently

:16:57.:17:06.

accurate. Kelly can now enjoy her experience. She and all the other

:17:07.:17:13.

vaulters can do no more. Just waiting.

:17:14.:17:28.

Will it be good enough for a medal? That was close. Yes. She is ahead by

:17:29.:17:43.

.0 83. Ellie Black hoping to put right what went wrong yesterday. A

:17:44.:17:50.

big first vaults. She hung in the air, made it look very easy. A very

:17:51.:17:58.

good style. You could see it in her face, the absolute determination.

:17:59.:18:05.

She means business today, Chris. She was a finalist in the Olympics. A

:18:06.:18:12.

really good style, Mitch. Absolutely dead centre. She can twist and come

:18:13.:18:26.

out nicely. That is great vaulting. Look how precise that was. It is a

:18:27.:18:34.

5.4 difficulty. This gymnast has made every individual final. A very

:18:35.:18:43.

tough schedule for Ellie Black. But she starts superbly.

:18:44.:18:55.

She needs now to keep this consistency if she is to go ahead of

:18:56.:19:01.

Kelly Simm. She really needs lots of speed to

:19:02.:19:24.

drive her feet into the board. Lovely! She is really on fire today.

:19:25.:19:34.

Where will the judges deduct from on this because it looked incredibly

:19:35.:19:39.

smooth. It is incredibly difficult to do these Tsukahara base fault

:19:40.:19:45.

with one and a half twists. The arm well forward. A nice base, spot on.

:19:46.:19:56.

She had a starter yesterday but today, this was perfectly landed.

:19:57.:20:08.

The textbook style. Potential may be lack of height. And may be tucking

:20:09.:20:13.

the knees up a little early on that last half twist. But I would be

:20:14.:20:17.

surprised if that has less than nine for execution. Look at that broad

:20:18.:20:25.

base. Chris, you're quite right, a little bit loose at the of the

:20:26.:20:31.

knees. But we can see this in slow motion and it was a very fast vault.

:20:32.:20:42.

Surely she have to lead the field? The current leader Kelly Simm looks

:20:43.:20:50.

up. Three gymnasts to go. One of which is Claudia Fragapane. She goes

:20:51.:21:02.

into first place. The trick is to have both vaults as good as each

:21:03.:21:08.

other. The second Canadian in this final, Maegan Chant. An interesting

:21:09.:21:14.

start. A real no-nonsense approach to this

:21:15.:21:28.

vaulting. You could see in the way she did that, it was quite a

:21:29.:21:33.

different style to that of Ellie Black. She means business. Was it

:21:34.:21:39.

piped or straight? Very nice technique. She hits the

:21:40.:22:03.

platform, extends, opens those hips and then comes into a pike. I think

:22:04.:22:10.

she holds the park. If she had piked and then extended out, they would be

:22:11.:22:14.

giving it a straight but I think that is just the pike. My old coach

:22:15.:22:21.

used to say pike extension, hip rotation.

:22:22.:22:32.

I think they are having that debate, is it pike or straight? They need to

:22:33.:22:39.

have a word with your coach, Mitch! That was lovely. That was another

:22:40.:23:14.

Tsukahara vault. Neither of the Canadians opting for the more

:23:15.:23:19.

popular flip on. That was arguably better than the first one. A lovely

:23:20.:23:32.

shape. She really held her shape. Interestingly, the same technique on

:23:33.:23:36.

the top of the table. Almost as centrally landed. A lovely

:23:37.:23:43.

conversion of power. Whether it will be enough to go ahead of Ellie Black

:23:44.:23:53.

is one point. Kelly Simm is second at the moment.

:23:54.:24:11.

gymnasts. Canada have not had a very happy time at these Commonwealth

:24:12.:24:14.

Games, in terms of medals and success. Very close between second

:24:15.:24:18.

and third at the moment. It is second. She scores exactly the

:24:19.:24:52.

same for both vaults, as does her compatriot. Dipa Karmakar next.

:24:53.:25:13.

Again, the Tsukahara with full twist. She just got her head stuck a

:25:14.:25:20.

little bit and struggled with the second half. Nothing like as strong

:25:21.:25:28.

a quality with that vault. She made it difficult than herself because

:25:29.:25:35.

she stayed piked. An ideal shape is the straight shape to twist. You can

:25:36.:25:40.

see the break of the hips and it wriggled a little bit and destroyed

:25:41.:25:46.

the flight. She did not quite get those feet right over her head from

:25:47.:25:51.

the beginning. However, it was a good solid vaults. Deductions for

:25:52.:25:53.

legs apart on. A really unorthodox technique, we

:25:54.:26:20.

would say there. Technically, a little bit lacking.

:26:21.:26:29.

Look at the scoreboard there. That gives you an idea of how difficult

:26:30.:26:40.

this vault is. A seven! Chris is wincing.

:26:41.:26:53.

And she made it! She made it! How about that? Absolutely fantastic! I

:26:54.:27:04.

have not seen that in 20 years. Well done! That is her moment.

:27:05.:27:14.

Absolutely. To get that round. She had maybe an inch between her bum

:27:15.:27:17.

and the mat. a deduction for brushing the floor

:27:18.:27:39.

but definitely feet first. Huge delight.

:27:40.:27:51.

This is fabulous vaulting. Courageous and it paid off. We did

:27:52.:27:57.

have our hearts in our mouths little bit up here but that was great. She

:27:58.:28:05.

is delighted. A seven difficulty obviously gives her a big, big

:28:06.:28:10.

cushion. Ellie Black leads the field. Kelly Simm is hanging on for

:28:11.:28:18.

England in bronze medal position. Dipa Karmakar is in silver medal

:28:19.:28:36.

position for the moment. One gymnast is still to come and it is

:28:37.:28:43.

England's Dipa Karmakar -- Claudia Fragapane.

:28:44.:28:56.

That was a good, strong vault. Well, Chris, weighed you think the

:28:57.:29:06.

deductions will come from there? Little bit slack knees. Her knees

:29:07.:29:13.

are little bit bent and the direction. She very cleverly lands

:29:14.:29:19.

to one side and jumps in but she gets that because she bends one

:29:20.:29:23.

elbow on the contact and that is where the deviation comes. It is

:29:24.:29:29.

fabulous vaulting. She is a tiny gymnast. It is the right arm which

:29:30.:29:34.

bends. She just attacks it. A lot of good stuff. She lands with

:29:35.:29:57.

her chest well up. She is cleanly round. Very impressive vaulting from

:29:58.:30:09.

Claudia. She scored 14 points six in qualification. She has gone up on

:30:10.:30:10.

that score. Nile Wilson watches on. Very good vaulting. It will be a

:30:11.:30:42.

child end. It will be very, very close this. -- it will be a

:30:43.:30:52.

challenge. I am sure it was good enough. Very, very courageous. Did

:30:53.:30:57.

not hold back. The second vault was equally impressive.

:30:58.:31:11.

legs. The power and the height and the attack is fabulous. Definitely a

:31:12.:31:18.

medal. Yes, her energy, will look at this. -- look at this. Power and the

:31:19.:31:27.

determination she overcomes it. The somersault with the half turn. And a

:31:28.:31:32.

characteristic smile. There is no doubt that is not straight. This

:31:33.:31:37.

starts straight. You have to hold the shape for half of it. That could

:31:38.:31:50.

be a deduction. We will blow them to give it. -- we will wish for them to

:31:51.:32:08.

give it. Will we see a number one? Everybody is eagerly awaiting the

:32:09.:32:14.

result including Ellie Black who is in the lead with a score of 14.433.

:32:15.:32:21.

The judges are keeping us in suspense. Her only final today, she

:32:22.:32:39.

has floor tomorrow. She got 14.2666 qualification to become the highest

:32:40.:32:45.

qualifier. -- 14 .266 in qualification. They are making her

:32:46.:32:55.

weight. The suspense is too much for Claudia Fragapane. Her eyes are

:32:56.:33:08.

glued on the scoreboard. That debate between pike or straight. Calm down!

:33:09.:33:24.

The judges are not sure and they can as to watch the video. -- they can

:33:25.:33:31.

asp. Dipa Karmakar is definitely guaranteed a medal. Great news for

:33:32.:33:37.

India. I think they are watching things back. Dipa Karmakar is in

:33:38.:33:47.

second. Ellie Black is third. They will have to wait longer as Claudia

:33:48.:33:56.

decides to take a seat. The Hydro have started to clap. To encourage

:33:57.:34:04.

the judges story up. -- to hurry up. The emotion of yesterday is that!

:34:05.:34:12.

Here we go. She got Gold in the all-around yesterday. And

:34:13.:34:19.

confirmation, she has got Gold here in the women's vault final. An

:34:20.:34:30.

average score of 14.633. Fragapane, the Golden bowl once more! -- the

:34:31.:34:36.

Golden girl. She is only 16 and four foot seven

:34:37.:34:41.

and a giant of these Commonwealth Games. Fabulous performance gain

:34:42.:34:45.

from Claudia Fragapane. We will go to the man's more horse

:34:46.:34:52.

final shortly. We have Louis Smith and Daniel Keatings. They are

:34:53.:34:55.

running 15 minutes late at the Hydro so we were fair in about ten

:34:56.:35:04.

minutes. That gives us time to go to the Emirates Arena. We are enjoying

:35:05.:35:12.

the man's badminton. The English number one, the silver-medallist

:35:13.:35:16.

from Delhi, is trying to get into the quarterfinals. He is up against

:35:17.:35:24.

the man from Singapore. It is eight all in the second game.

:35:25.:35:48.

Getting nicely out of that, he was in deep problems all the way. That

:35:49.:36:13.

was a good shot, a camera shot. It is not a badminton shot.

:36:14.:36:55.

He is getting to it very early. On this forehand. That is very nicely

:36:56.:37:07.

played. Ouseph is under great pressure. He cannot reach him,

:37:08.:37:08.

despite his long legs. That is nice. Exactly the same score

:37:09.:37:33.

as in the first game interval. Ouseph leading 11-10.

:37:34.:37:52.

First-time Ouseph has had a two point advantage in this game. What a

:37:53.:38:08.

chance! He took a long swing here. Ouseph was lucky to get away here

:38:09.:38:13.

and I think he knows it. That was not well constructed.

:38:14.:39:25.

He has pushed that long. Ouseph did well to get out of the way here.

:39:26.:39:40.

That was straight down the middle. Once again, I feel Ouseph is really

:39:41.:40:00.

sort of edging away. Gliding away. Gliding away! I feel he is slowly

:40:01.:40:12.

but surely adding on the margin one point at a time. Nice and easy. It

:40:13.:40:30.

will possibly now go to 17-12. It is always good fun to guess now and

:40:31.:40:34.

again! What worries me is that you are normally right! I get many

:40:35.:40:38.

right! But sometimes I also get them painfully wrong!

:40:39.:40:59.

You see? You said it was going to be 17-12. It was close! One point, yes.

:41:00.:41:14.

He got the first. You were 50% right! Good to defence from Ouseph

:41:15.:41:27.

here. -- good defence. Huang taking nice control of this rally. Ouseph

:41:28.:41:33.

will have to react to whatever is thrown at him. But at that. That is

:41:34.:41:41.

a beauty. -- look at that. Nice to see he is taking the pace away from

:41:42.:41:47.

that shot, he is the reverse drop shot rather than going for the big

:41:48.:41:52.

smash. But at how effective that was. -- look at. Ouseph is nowhere

:41:53.:41:56.

near it. We can have a highlight of the

:41:57.:42:26.

expressions of Huang! He is having delightful expressions! Well

:42:27.:42:31.

intercepted. Good anticipation here. Another one is long. These are five

:42:32.:43:49.

match points. The Ouseph. -- for Ouseph. Yes! Interesting way of

:43:50.:44:01.

changing his mind at the last moment. Ouseph is through to the

:44:02.:44:09.

quarterfinals and it will be a battle between England and Scotland.

:44:10.:44:15.

Awaiting him in the last eight is Kieran may release.

:44:16.:44:22.

England against Scotland. And Kieran is Ouseph's training partner.

:44:23.:44:28.

Stand-by, it is time for the man's pommelhorse final, one of the most

:44:29.:44:34.

eagerly anticipated events. Louis Smith was the main man a couple of

:44:35.:44:38.

years ago when he took silver in the Olympics in this event and he became

:44:39.:44:42.

part of sporting royalty in this country. But the man who finished

:44:43.:44:47.

one place behind him in bronze was map Chris Whitlock a couple of years

:44:48.:44:53.

ago -- Max Whitlock. And he has created more pain nearing moves than

:44:54.:44:59.

even the Louis Smith achieved. -- pain nearing. And Daniel Keatings is

:45:00.:45:03.

the reigning British champion in this list two silver medals so far.

:45:04.:45:10.

So sit back and enjoyed the man's pommelhorse final. -- and enjoy.

:45:11.:45:57.

the home nations will prevail and keep this medal winning that we are

:45:58.:46:07.

seen? I do not want to keep -- put my money on anyone. Max has had an

:46:08.:46:15.

amazing competition. He has already been out here. This dominance is

:46:16.:46:25.

continuing, because down below us, 28 has received a gold medal -- Amy

:46:26.:46:57.

Regan. -- Amy Regan. -- Matt Claudia Fragapane. -- Claudia Fragapane.

:46:58.:47:24.

APPLAUSE. This moment is all about English National Anthem -- Claudia

:47:25.:47:57.

Fragapane. She has been on a high and she has had to pick herself up.

:47:58.:48:02.

She does not seem to get fazed by anything. Going last it is a long

:48:03.:48:09.

way. She was composed and off she went. Here are the bolts. -- vaults.

:48:10.:48:29.

She was likely off to the side. This is the second one. She is

:48:30.:48:45.

incredible. I had to have her, Black gets the first bronze and India

:48:46.:48:53.

McPeak gets the bronze -- Black gets the silver macro -- silver medal --

:48:54.:48:59.

India McPeak. McPeak gets the bronze -- Black gets

:49:00.:49:21.

the silver macro -- -- -- Dipa Karmakar. We cannot discount Daniel

:49:22.:49:57.

Keating 's. He had a great day. It might give him that fight. He is

:49:58.:50:27.

penned sharp in his execution. The score is split between difficulty in

:50:28.:50:31.

execution. Those gymnast who want to push it, there is a risk there. Well

:50:32.:50:58.

Lewis know that he can go 64 nine. All we had to go on was his

:50:59.:51:01.

qualification routine, none of us had Seaman was going to be like. On

:51:02.:51:10.

the execution point, talk us through this. He did swing very smoothly. He

:51:11.:51:18.

had a 7.2 in the locker he was determined to move. He has been

:51:19.:51:23.

criticised in the past, but he has claimed that out. Also, the fluid

:51:24.:51:32.

nurse of the swing, when he gets into the air, -- fluidity, he keeps

:51:33.:51:38.

them in a parallel line. He has worked on his score. I think he has

:51:39.:51:48.

got the edge. Here, when he sets the dismount, there is no hesitation.

:51:49.:51:58.

Superb work. The difficulty billed as the whole routine continues.

:51:59.:52:03.

Now, there is a massive deduction -- bills. There has to be a constant

:52:04.:52:16.

flow. That has a knock-on affect on the final score. When they get into

:52:17.:52:20.

that routine, they are thinking they have to land. Lewis is determined to

:52:21.:52:37.

go out with 272, is he ready? He has been preparing since the beginning

:52:38.:52:40.

of the year. He was starting to get fit at the beginning of last year. I

:52:41.:52:52.

cannot call this one. The lads are out. Louis Smith was sat up

:52:53.:52:58.

watching. Now, he is ready, he has his tracksuit on. Let us look at the

:52:59.:53:05.

competitors. Anderson kicks this off. The Scottish competitor is

:53:06.:53:18.

third up. Jack Davis for Wales and then Louis Smith. Then Daniel Purvis

:53:19.:53:26.

and Max Whitlock will round things off. How crucial is this order?

:53:27.:53:43.

Daniel Keatings will be edgy. He can go out there and get his job done

:53:44.:53:50.

and sit and relax. He is setting the benchmark for Louis Smith to come

:53:51.:53:54.

up. Max will not be watching. He will take themselves into a corner

:53:55.:53:59.

and do his own thing, he will hear the reaction from the crowd. Louis

:54:00.:54:05.

Smith already has Commonwealth gold. He has been there and done it. He

:54:06.:54:12.

has nothing to lose. Max already has three gold medals and has nothing to

:54:13.:54:17.

lose. It will be a battle of difficulty. Louis Smith is looking

:54:18.:54:21.

relaxed. I spoke to him the other day and he said that his goal was to

:54:22.:54:26.

come here and prove he was ready. The final is a different story. You

:54:27.:54:31.

want to get into that final and Louis Smith will say he does not

:54:32.:54:35.

want that title, but every athlete is here to win. This is the men's

:54:36.:54:54.

pommel horse final and it starts with Anderson Loran from Canada. You

:54:55.:55:09.

have to close your legs at the top. Deductions. He has to keep his hands

:55:10.:55:14.

together. If you do not have your hands parallel, he keeps them on the

:55:15.:55:23.

dismount. On pommel horse, that is a level field. It is great when the

:55:24.:55:30.

first person starts off well. It sets the tone. That was probably the

:55:31.:55:37.

most important routine. Well executed, good style am a little

:55:38.:55:43.

brushes on the handles, there will be deductions -- and little brushes.

:55:44.:55:51.

You can see on the screen, the execution score. He is doing very

:55:52.:56:00.

well. He is very cleverly using the handles. They cannot deduct you for

:56:01.:56:03.

having one hand in front of the other on the handles. A good

:56:04.:56:14.

exercise. His qualification score was 13 point 66. He did well to go

:56:15.:56:23.

through. He will put the pressure on the rest. If you go through, you

:56:24.:56:33.

have set a marker. A lot of people fall off. 13.6. As you say, the

:56:34.:56:44.

benchmark has been set. Clinton Parnell for Wales. -- Clinton

:56:45.:57:14.

Purnell. He got a 5.14 difficulty. Clinton Purnell for Wales. Forgive

:57:15.:57:19.

me for saying, I remember him as a tiny lad. This is not his favourite

:57:20.:57:24.

and he is delighted to make this final. He has made a very solid

:57:25.:57:38.

start. Look how far the hands are part, that is deductible. He has to

:57:39.:57:44.

keep them together. He is keeping the swing. The rhythm is good. And

:57:45.:57:51.

he has to keep it now. That is the pause you did not want to save. He

:57:52.:57:56.

could lose the value of the dismount. Tough, but a fact. Well,

:57:57.:58:04.

we have to point out there has been a lot of gymnastics going on, but in

:58:05.:58:10.

the individual finals, nothing else is happening, it just that one

:58:11.:58:17.

performance and all eyes are focused in on the gymnast. That is quite

:58:18.:58:26.

nerve-wracking. Lovely overhead shot. You can see him brushing the

:58:27.:58:35.

handles. The overhead shot gave us a good look at how straight the body

:58:36.:58:41.

was. You can see a little bit of a hike and that was the problem. He

:58:42.:58:47.

used strength rather than swing. He will get add deduction. -- a

:58:48.:59:00.

deduction. A little resigned smile. Good work on the apparatus. He did

:59:01.:59:07.

not fall off. Watch the left hand, he will tap it in quickly. Good

:59:08.:59:14.

technique. He has got good technique -- attack. -- tuck. Daniel Keatings

:59:15.:59:28.

waits for the judges to put up the score for Clinton Purnell. I doubt

:59:29.:59:36.

they are deliberating on the dismount. It is in, 12.966. A little

:59:37.:59:48.

shrug. Daniel Keatings. He has been European champion. He is in with a

:59:49.:59:58.

chance of a medal, but the tiniest of mistakes pushed him out of the

:59:59.:00:02.

medals on the floor. The smallest margin. The smallest mistake. He has

:00:03.:00:13.

a lovely swinging style. Nice pick-up, into the stretch body

:00:14.:00:26.

swing. Keeps the swing. Such a difficult one to control. This is a

:00:27.:00:35.

great start. Hands are absolutely parallel. Very nice work indeed.

:00:36.:00:47.

Into another triple Russian. Very good work indeed. Travelling back,

:00:48.:01:03.

keep the swaying! That is huge! -- swing. Daniel Keatings is through.

:01:04.:01:19.

He has laid down the gauntlet now. Louis Smith knows he has a job to

:01:20.:01:29.

do. As does Max Whitlock. He did not hold back. That was so difficult.

:01:30.:01:36.

And so elegant. That was the best I have seen Daniel Keatings swing on

:01:37.:01:40.

the pommel horse. Look at that style. For so many years, he has

:01:41.:01:46.

been in the shadows but this could well be his moment. It is easy to

:01:47.:01:57.

forget that this guy companies with the best, trains with the best, has

:01:58.:02:04.

won an Olympic medal. The adjustments will tell you, it is

:02:05.:02:09.

three tenths every time you do it. Look at him, is he smiling? He

:02:10.:02:24.

knows! Yes! He is smiling there. You come here with an idea what it is

:02:25.:02:30.

you want to achieve and to absolutely deliver with your own

:02:31.:02:35.

expectations must be the best feeling. Absolutely. You can do no

:02:36.:02:50.

better. 16.058! The gymnasts in this pommel horse final have real work to

:02:51.:03:01.

do. Max and Louis Smith cannot hold back. Dear oh dear. Davies now for

:03:02.:03:12.

Wales. 18 years old. The youngest in this final. Very nice. His flop.

:03:13.:03:24.

Interesting that they call it that. A triple Russian in the middle. This

:03:25.:03:30.

is good swinging. Nicely extended at the front. There are each confident

:03:31.:03:37.

work. This is a good routine. Driving forward. Good discipline

:03:38.:03:44.

with the hand placement. Come on, don't lose the rhythm. Lift your

:03:45.:03:49.

hips and lift your feet. Yes, that was a lovely routine. Jac Davey is

:03:50.:04:00.

going for a very high execution score. He looks a little bit

:04:01.:04:13.

lightweight as he is swinging. I have known the coach for many years

:04:14.:04:21.

and he will be delighted. He wasn't overawed in any way at all. Just

:04:22.:04:29.

came to work on the pommel horse, it was the only PC did. Quite often

:04:30.:04:32.

that can be quite nerve wracking. But not for this young guy. I do not

:04:33.:04:39.

think that the difficulty level will be quite a seven but it was very

:04:40.:04:46.

well executed. Lovely hip discipline. Watch the hand

:04:47.:04:51.

disappear. That is a sign of good technique. If you get the hand

:04:52.:04:57.

behind the hip. A lovely line. And look how he kept it here. Again! You

:04:58.:05:14.

can see the elation! The relief. You just don't want to make a complete

:05:15.:05:18.

fool of yourself in front of these people. 14.8. A very respectable

:05:19.:05:30.

score in this company. When you think of a six difficulty. Louis

:05:31.:05:38.

Smith for England. He has put so much work in the gym for his

:05:39.:05:47.

comeback. Now is his time to shine. The question about difficulty will

:05:48.:05:57.

soon be answered. When he gets onto this one handle, you need a double

:05:58.:06:04.

stretched circle. He is going well. See when he stretches. There is the

:06:05.:06:11.

first. No, he has played safe there. Clean in the spindle. And he is

:06:12.:06:22.

flaring on, picking up the circle. This is where the difficulty is

:06:23.:06:23.

coming up a bit. Mikey. This is crucial. He has lost the

:06:24.:06:41.

rhythm. That will be the difference. The dismount will be a question. It

:06:42.:06:54.

will only be a. It may not be gold this time for Louis Smith but it was

:06:55.:07:02.

all about proving he can come back. It was a really impressive routine

:07:03.:07:07.

until the very end. I was thinking how are the judges going to split

:07:08.:07:21.

them? He did their job for them. He really did have a go here. The

:07:22.:07:26.

second handstand was a little bit short. Let's have a look at it. But

:07:27.:07:35.

he got onto the end. Step up. And we watch leg Trail. And it is good

:07:36.:07:44.

night, Irene once that happens. But mostly very successfully done. He is

:07:45.:07:51.

a big man, you know. He is very sure about hand placement on the handle.

:07:52.:08:02.

You wonder how Paul feels with two such brilliant performers in this

:08:03.:08:08.

final. The execution of his work through the routine. There is the

:08:09.:08:14.

pause. That is the moment. That is not a dismount. They might give him

:08:15.:08:27.

a C. But in this company and with the fault on the handle before. He

:08:28.:08:42.

goes into second. It is a score of Dan Keatings for Scotland leads.

:08:43.:09:04.

Gabriel Gan. He was just outside of the medals at the Olympic Games. The

:09:05.:09:15.

struggle in the values it a little bit but nice and clean. -- the

:09:16.:09:29.

straddle in the values it a little bit. A very good final so far. And

:09:30.:09:40.

he didn't hesitate through the sequence to give him a clear

:09:41.:09:52.

dismount. A similar approach to Davies from Wales. It will be

:09:53.:09:55.

interesting to see the battle between those two. He didn't qualify

:09:56.:10:03.

with anything like such a score. But a good line, light and slight, that

:10:04.:10:11.

is the name of the game for easy pommel work. Absolutely. To swing

:10:12.:10:21.

straight. He reminds me of the Australian who used to swing very

:10:22.:10:26.

quickly. Another small man. Look how that hand is hidden behind the

:10:27.:10:32.

hips. Good extension. Lovely shape in side support as well. This is

:10:33.:10:40.

very good quality work. I am keen to see the difficulty score. Whether or

:10:41.:10:42.

not it will see the difficulty score. Whether or

:10:43.:10:48.

be higher than by four. It needs to be to get up to Davies. That is good

:10:49.:11:07.

work from him. High quality. Davies in third at the moment with 14.8. It

:11:08.:11:19.

is 14.266. He had a go. He knew he had to if he was going to have any

:11:20.:11:25.

success in this final. Somebody else who will have a very good go is

:11:26.:11:30.

Daniel Purvis for Scotland. He posted a 6.1 difficulty earlier. He

:11:31.:11:37.

has been in the 15th before. He is no stranger to it. He cut it short.

:11:38.:11:45.

Variation. Very swift in the Russian. Pike. I tell you what,

:11:46.:11:58.

there is a determination in this. Through the Russians on the end.

:11:59.:12:06.

Travelling through. Keep the rhythm, young man! There is another one.

:12:07.:12:12.

Another one through. Lovely work from Daniel Purvis. It is going to

:12:13.:12:20.

be the top end of 14. Can it creep into 15? Will that put him into

:12:21.:12:29.

third? Are you excited? What a pommel horse final we are

:12:30.:12:37.

experiencing here. Come on down! Good to see him. He has faltered a

:12:38.:12:41.

bit in this championship but he was really at his fighting best here. He

:12:42.:12:49.

has been criticised for being pike at the front but he kept the swing

:12:50.:12:57.

going. This has proved crucial. To be able to keep rhythm in any

:12:58.:13:03.

handstand, including the dismount. It is hard to be critical but the

:13:04.:13:07.

judges have two separate them somehow. What is your prediction? I

:13:08.:13:17.

would like to see him get a 15. What is his difficulty? His difficulty is

:13:18.:13:26.

6.1 in qualification. He needs an 8.9. I think it was good. Are the

:13:27.:13:33.

judges seeing it? He took as by surprise in parts of his routine

:13:34.:13:38.

because he navigated his way differently to what he has done

:13:39.:13:42.

before. He wondered whether to put another turn in there but he thought

:13:43.:13:47.

he would play it safe. Get off, while you are winning! I have to

:13:48.:13:55.

say, technically, not quite as stretched as some of them. The last

:13:56.:14:09.

man up is Max Whitlock, adjusting the pommel horse. He is fourth.

:14:10.:14:33.

14.516. Execution down at 8.4. That is harsh in my book. The judges are

:14:34.:14:34.

doing a good job. They are sticking to the new rules. Hand placement.

:14:35.:14:35.

Louis Smith is guaranteed a medal. But what colour? Will it be gold and

:14:36.:14:42.

time again for Max Whitlock? He is more than capable but a big score to

:14:43.:14:55.

beat. Handstand, very secure. One Russian, two Russians. He really

:14:56.:15:06.

needs that 7.3. If anything, so far he is even more stretched. The same

:15:07.:15:12.

mistake as in qualifying but he has picked it up. There is the spin.

:15:13.:15:20.

Very difficult work. Good placement of the hands. Still going. Go one.

:15:21.:15:31.

There we go. He keeps his rhythm. He is going back again. He really got

:15:32.:15:42.

hold of it. It was the execution quite as good as Daniel Keatings?

:15:43.:15:54.

Not to my eye. I don't know if it will creep into the 16? It is easy

:15:55.:16:07.

for us, but 31-macro went through something special. -- Daniel

:16:08.:16:20.

Keatings. He will hold onto that gold medal. You saw a little brush

:16:21.:16:28.

there. I see this as a silver medal. I am a great admirer of Max.

:16:29.:16:38.

Beautiful work. Confident on one handle. There, you could see that

:16:39.:16:46.

was a big break and a big hike at the back. -- pike. He had a break of

:16:47.:17:03.

a line and picked it up again. That is due to his great strength that he

:17:04.:17:07.

is able to think quickly and adjust his body quickly. He had to know

:17:08.:17:13.

whether the judges are sharp enough to pick up on the shapes. We are

:17:14.:17:20.

told that you need to pick up on the quality of shape. C. It is silver

:17:21.:17:37.

for Max Whitlock. -- let us see. There is golden, Daniel Keatings. We

:17:38.:17:47.

thought the smile was big yesterday when he got a silver medal, but to

:17:48.:17:53.

achieve at this medal and in this company, they were all here, Louis

:17:54.:18:05.

Smith, Maxwell Clark... -- Max Whitlock. Daniel Keatings would have

:18:06.:18:25.

been the least likely. Max Whitlock really went for it. Louis Smith did

:18:26.:18:45.

so well to make that final. He ran out of steam little bit. -- a little

:18:46.:18:56.

bit. You lose a bit of your edge when you are competing. He will know

:18:57.:19:05.

that the right man took a gold medal. Any other competition

:19:06.:19:15.

involving the pommel horse, Max Whitlock would have won. Louis Smith

:19:16.:19:23.

did not get the medal he wanted, but he gave a very good account of

:19:24.:19:28.

himself to win the bronze medal. Brilliant to show that sort of form.

:19:29.:19:37.

What a final, we have all waited and wondered what the outcome -- outcome

:19:38.:19:47.

would be. The lads did not disappoint, joining us here,

:19:48.:19:54.

Scotland's only gold medallist at the Commonwealth Games. He has just

:19:55.:20:03.

had that title taken away. It is now an exclusive club that Daniel

:20:04.:20:08.

Keatings is a part of. I am delighted for him. The time had to

:20:09.:20:15.

come and see it happen here, it was absolutely incredible. I am so

:20:16.:20:20.

happy. You were delighted for him yesterday, but how different is the

:20:21.:20:27.

gold medal? It is incredible. The expectation and pressure was on him

:20:28.:20:31.

and under that pressure, he pulled it off in front of the home crowd.

:20:32.:20:38.

We were saying, for so long, Daniel Keatings has always been there, he

:20:39.:20:43.

has taken on a lot of the pressure, pushed British gymnastics forward,

:20:44.:20:50.

but it feels right that here, in front of a home crowd, he has done

:20:51.:20:56.

it. He has had his ups and downs, but he has used that will stop it is

:20:57.:21:04.

unbelievable, because he was first up, he did not have a benchmark to

:21:05.:21:10.

follow. Then Louis Smith and Max Whitlock came in and knew they had

:21:11.:21:18.

to up their difficulty. It did not work. With the score of 16, let us

:21:19.:21:25.

treat ourselves to another look at what was close to perfection. It

:21:26.:21:35.

starts well, it had this real flow. There was real tempo and rhythm. It

:21:36.:21:42.

really helped him to do that floor routine and when it came to the

:21:43.:21:47.

pommel horse, he did not need to worry about adjusting to the

:21:48.:21:51.

atmosphere. There was no part where he -- were you thought he was losing

:21:52.:21:57.

rhythm. Obviously, you have to wait to the end because the dismount

:21:58.:22:02.

could be costly. It is so crucial, you have to remain calm on the

:22:03.:22:08.

pommel horse. He is swinging, going with the flow, going for the gold

:22:09.:22:14.

medal. He punches the air in delight. A special moment. It is

:22:15.:22:23.

worth mentioning that Max beat the gymnast that pushed Louis Smith out

:22:24.:22:27.

of the gold medal position in the Olympics. The quality of gymnast

:22:28.:22:35.

that we have is second to none. -- gymnasts. How will this compare to

:22:36.:22:42.

the other medals he has won? It is a massive achievement. It was not just

:22:43.:22:47.

a normal final, this was hotly contested. This is the one he

:22:48.:22:53.

wanted, this was the anticipated final. We had two Olympic medallists

:22:54.:23:00.

going for a gold medal and it was amazing. A word on Louis Smith, this

:23:01.:23:06.

was his big moment coming back stop you could see in his face that he

:23:07.:23:14.

would give it a good shot. You could see that he was adding the

:23:15.:23:17.

difficulty throughout the routine. The whole routine was so clean and

:23:18.:23:22.

tidy, he had that flair we have seen so many times. There was real

:23:23.:23:30.

determination. Yes, he was going for broke, not holding anything back. He

:23:31.:23:36.

has such a great character. He was swinging, he was calm. He finishes

:23:37.:23:45.

off the routine and I think he knows that he gave it is best shot. -- his

:23:46.:23:55.

best shot. We have seen him in other championships and was a focus on

:23:56.:24:00.

getting their medal, but here it has been different. It was different

:24:01.:24:07.

pressure, he wanted to put the critics write and show that he was

:24:08.:24:13.

not living a celebrity lifestyle and he had focused on his gymnastics and

:24:14.:24:17.

still has that passion. Max Whitlock, he has been having a

:24:18.:24:21.

storming competition, but it goes to show, a tiny bend in the arms and

:24:22.:24:31.

the placing changes. Going last is pretty bad macro putting yourself

:24:32.:24:34.

under pressure. It is a difficult place to be. You have to find the

:24:35.:24:40.

best within yourself. It is not an easy place to be. Are you part of

:24:41.:24:48.

this schedule? You have been part of the bed will stop is this your fault

:24:49.:24:52.

that the gymnasts are working every single hour? -- bid. To see the

:24:53.:25:07.

development of the gymnast, they believe in themselves. They are

:25:08.:25:10.

standing on the podium and getting the rewards they deserve, the hours

:25:11.:25:14.

in training they put in, it is wonderful. I think Max might be

:25:15.:25:21.

tired. The bend in the arms might be a result of that. He has more finals

:25:22.:25:30.

to come. It is split over a week. If you have made the team finals and

:25:31.:25:34.

the individual finals, it is a tough task. The gymnasts are out to

:25:35.:25:43.

receive their medals and once again, it is a home nations are fair. Louis

:25:44.:25:48.

Smith, Daniel Keatings and Max Whitlock -- affair. What a final it

:25:49.:26:06.

was. Louis Smith leads out three world class performers on the pommel

:26:07.:26:13.

horse. Daniel Keatings has found the miracle of form just at the right

:26:14.:26:19.

time. Max wedlock, we know all about him, he is on a roll, it he is

:26:20.:26:32.

focused -- Max Whitlock. The man that everyone wanted to come out, he

:26:33.:26:39.

is such a nice guy, Daniel Keatings emerges on top of the pile. The

:26:40.:26:47.

medals will be presented by the Earl of Wessex. There is the Earl of

:26:48.:27:02.

Wessex. Alongside Helen Phillips who has done so much for a Welsh

:27:03.:27:09.

gymnastics, as well as in her role for the Commonwealth -- for Welsh

:27:10.:27:13.

gymnastics. The winner of the Commonwealth medal, Louis Smith. He

:27:14.:27:24.

came here to prove something to himself. Lots of us who know the

:27:25.:27:29.

sport know he has nothing to prove. himself. Lots of us who know the

:27:30.:27:35.

This is to show that is hard is still in gymnastics. That bronze

:27:36.:27:40.

medal is so well-deserved. -- heart. Great stuff. Louis Smith

:27:41.:27:56.

takes a bronze medal to out to his considerable collection. The winner

:27:57.:27:59.

of the silver medal, representing England, Max Whitlock. A silver

:28:00.:28:09.

marvel to add to three gold medals. Whichever way you look at it, he has

:28:10.:28:23.

had a great games -- Games -- medal. He was 15.966, as close issue can

:28:24.:28:32.

get! That was a superb performance -- as close as you can get.

:28:33.:28:38.

get! That was a superb performance -- as close Max Whitlock, gymnast

:28:39.:28:43.

extraordinaire. Max Whitlock takes the Silver medal for the pommel

:28:44.:28:52.

horse. Gold medallist and Commonwealth champion, representing

:28:53.:29:01.

Scotland's, Daniel Keatings. No need to say his name -- Scotland. He has

:29:02.:29:13.

joined the exclusive 16 stratospheric club. A man who can

:29:14.:29:19.

score over 16 on the pommel horse. A golden performance. He accepts his

:29:20.:29:27.

medal in the way only he can. Humbly and gratefully. Daniel Keatings is a

:29:28.:29:48.

great sportsman. He is the pride of Scotland. Ladies and gentlemen, the

:29:49.:29:59.

National Anthem of Scotland. Scottish National Anthem.. --

:30:00.:30:02.

Scottish National Anthem. Let's celebrate our Commonwealth

:30:03.:31:30.

Games gold medallist. Emotional moments as Scotland get

:31:31.:32:10.

their gold and Daniel Keatings restores his status as one of our

:32:11.:32:15.

very best gymnasts in the whole of Great Britain. Good to see him back

:32:16.:32:22.

and what a final it was. Max Whitlock taking the silver and Louis

:32:23.:32:27.

Smith proved to us that his heart is still with us to take the bronze.

:32:28.:32:39.

What a final it was. In our heart of hearts, I think that was the order

:32:40.:32:45.

we wanted. I know his mother and father are in the crowd. Paul Hall

:32:46.:32:50.

was with him. They have gone through that tough time with him, so it is

:32:51.:32:57.

great and to do that in Scotland and become only the second ever gold

:32:58.:33:03.

medallist is a massive achievement. There is the confirmation. Flower of

:33:04.:33:12.

Scotland sounds really good in here. It is amazing. I am so happy for

:33:13.:33:18.

Dam, he is only the second man to do this. It is wonderful to see. I

:33:19.:33:23.

don't know if your microphone was up at the time but Beth and I were

:33:24.:33:29.

treated to a wonderful rendition of flower of Scotland from you, Steve.

:33:30.:33:34.

He has such a wonderful smile on his face. Yesterday with the silver, and

:33:35.:33:40.

about gold just means so much. How do you think Louis Smith will be

:33:41.:33:46.

feeling? You can see that he is pleased for Daniel, they have been

:33:47.:33:50.

together since they were four or five years old. They have been

:33:51.:33:56.

training for a long time. I am pleased for him. His coach Paul Hall

:33:57.:34:02.

has had a big influence on him. It is hard because he has got to of the

:34:03.:34:07.

best pommel workers in the country and he has taken them both to medal

:34:08.:34:12.

status. European Championship. He has had a big influence on both

:34:13.:34:18.

their careers. What do you think this will mean an Daniel Keatings

:34:19.:34:24.

from a selector 's point of view? I think it turns the table. He was

:34:25.:34:29.

performing under pressure and he has pulled it off. It is going to make

:34:30.:34:34.

the selectors think again about that team selection. We are going to lose

:34:35.:34:40.

you very shortly. You have duties to do as Scotland's first gold

:34:41.:34:46.

medallist. You will always be that. I am looking forward to it. I am

:34:47.:34:51.

presenting the rings medal. It is going to be a great honour to pass

:34:52.:34:58.

it onto our gold medallist on the rings. It is the discipline for

:34:59.:35:02.

which you received a gold medal. I think we might have a photograph.

:35:03.:35:10.

That we are. Look at you there. I remember watching that. It was

:35:11.:35:14.

straight after my final. That's right. I remember. Seeing images

:35:15.:35:22.

like this. You will have seen so many images. The year that you got

:35:23.:35:27.

to that you got about gold medal, annual Keating 's was born. It is

:35:28.:35:38.

incredible. I suppose everybody needs somebody to look up to. Sorry

:35:39.:35:44.

to cut you off. We have been wondering what Daniel is thinking.

:35:45.:35:52.

Here we go. We are in an incredibly privileged position watching these

:35:53.:35:56.

three perform. It was the one to watch. It was the one that you were

:35:57.:36:00.

looking forward to and you delivered on the big stage. It was amazing

:36:01.:36:07.

being in front of a home crowd and doing one of the best routines I

:36:08.:36:13.

have done. I upped my game to a seven point to start and I hit it.

:36:14.:36:18.

You say it was the Olympics that you never had. You seemed to thrive in

:36:19.:36:25.

the atmosphere. Yes. I have had my best results in front of a home

:36:26.:36:30.

crowd and I was happy to continue that here. I am ecstatic with the

:36:31.:36:36.

win. Was it extra special being up against your mates, two of the best

:36:37.:36:41.

pommel horse workers in the world. Definitely. All three of us have the

:36:42.:36:46.

highest start scores in the world at the moment. The medal could have

:36:47.:36:50.

gone to any of us. I was just happy to be in the final with these guys.

:36:51.:36:55.

I am sure you are going to revel in it. And the rings to come later.

:36:56.:37:03.

Max, another medal. A silver. A huge achievement. I am very happy. Such a

:37:04.:37:10.

great final to be a part of. Scoring 16 is huge in front of a home crowd.

:37:11.:37:15.

Well done. This competition has been great. You have been taking on a lot

:37:16.:37:23.

of stuff. Three outrageous finals. Did you feel like anything from the

:37:24.:37:28.

early apparatus are affected you? It helped to chill me out and kept me

:37:29.:37:33.

relaxed. I am starting to get tired after my fourth day in a row. I have

:37:34.:37:39.

one more piece to focus on. Well done. We are looking forward to

:37:40.:37:44.

watching you. Louis Smith, you seemed to enjoy that. I had a

:37:45.:37:51.

brilliant time out there. The crowd has been fantastic and it has been a

:37:52.:37:56.

brilliant pommel horse final. I went for a harder routine, I had nothing

:37:57.:38:01.

left to give. I was quite tired. It didn't go my way but I have come

:38:02.:38:08.

third. I am happy. Unlucky for the Welsh guy who did a brilliant

:38:09.:38:13.

routine and came fourth. You were cheering and clapping of every

:38:14.:38:16.

minute. Everybody was looking forward to seeing all of you. What

:38:17.:38:21.

was it like to be amongst your friends in this arena with thousands

:38:22.:38:26.

of people cheering you on? It has been unbelievable. There are not

:38:27.:38:30.

many pommel horse finals I have thoroughly enjoyed but this was

:38:31.:38:36.

brilliant. It was an intense experience, the anxiety and it was

:38:37.:38:41.

such fun. I am glad I am back and I am looking forward to carrying on

:38:42.:38:45.

training. That is the question. Are we going to see you more on the mat?

:38:46.:38:52.

After what I have done at this Commonwealth Games, it would be

:38:53.:38:55.

silly to give up so I am looking forward to doing more. Thanks to all

:38:56.:39:04.

of you. Huge congratulations to all three lads. We will have a chat with

:39:05.:39:12.

them later. The line-up now for the women's uneven bar.

:39:13.:39:28.

Elizabeth Beddoe is the first to go from Wales. She has the mat to go

:39:29.:39:37.

but for the moment she concentrates on the uneven bars. Very nice full

:39:38.:39:48.

pirouette. That is an error. Very difficult for these inexperienced

:39:49.:39:57.

gymnast to come straight in. She didn't quite get the swing into the

:39:58.:40:02.

somersault. In this format, the gymnasts have no warm up in the

:40:03.:40:09.

arena. Well, they did about three hours ago but they have been in the

:40:10.:40:14.

gym training while they are waiting for their go. Elizabeth, although 18

:40:15.:40:20.

years old will not have done a massive amount of finals like this.

:40:21.:40:33.

Down to the low bar. With the half term, very well performed. Handstand

:40:34.:40:40.

and a big swing up. Needs a good dismount. She does. That was such a

:40:41.:40:46.

shame. The difficult work she did fairly well. She was just unsettled

:40:47.:40:53.

on the hop. It is a pity. A fine gymnast. Once you lose your rhythm,

:40:54.:41:00.

Chris, and she did, it is very hard to get it back. She hopped on the

:41:01.:41:07.

way. This is the one that worked. Then she struggled to early and

:41:08.:41:14.

didn't get her heels pop. Her hips lead and not their heels. That made

:41:15.:41:19.

the somersault quite low and she didn't cling on to the bars. The

:41:20.:41:24.

judges have to decide whether she had a momentary hang. From the

:41:25.:41:31.

reaction of the bar, she might get away with it. If so, it is a

:41:32.:41:40.

decision that is worth about one marks. A lovely dismount. She is a

:41:41.:41:50.

fine gymnast. The Welsh women did fantastically. There is Tracy, the

:41:51.:41:57.

national coach for Wales. Most of the gymnasts are training at the

:41:58.:42:03.

National Centre. She was British champion aged nine and ten.

:42:04.:42:13.

Elizabeth Beddoe. 11.633 was the score. Chalked up and ready to go is

:42:14.:42:38.

England's Becky Downie. She has a similar dilemma to the lads on

:42:39.:42:47.

pommel horse she has a difficult routine and another one. Which will

:42:48.:42:51.

she do first? Full pirouette, straight into the pike to catch up.

:42:52.:43:01.

A move named after her, the Downie. Another release. Back down to the

:43:02.:43:09.

low bar. She has got to get back up to the high bar. She makes the turn

:43:10.:43:18.

just right. Needs to speed the Giants are up. Well done, Becky

:43:19.:43:25.

Downie. That is a routine that will be hard to beat. A commanding

:43:26.:43:29.

performance. She hit every handstand. I was relieved that you

:43:30.:43:34.

said it was the difficult routine because that was just immense. She

:43:35.:43:40.

missed one link. Sometimes she can get the second catch but she didn't

:43:41.:43:48.

chance it. She did be easier routine in qualification. She obviously

:43:49.:43:53.

thought very quickly. Original, courageous. As European champion on

:43:54.:44:02.

this apparatus you would expect her to produce under pressure and that

:44:03.:44:16.

is exactly what she did. She did a tall Katchev in the pike position

:44:17.:44:20.

and that is the move named after her, the Downie. She does a clear

:44:21.:44:35.

circle into Katchev. You have to be so clean. Accuracy on the timing and

:44:36.:44:42.

the shapes have two be right. That is great stuff. She is going to need

:44:43.:44:53.

a score in the high 14s for the gold. This should hover towards the

:44:54.:45:09.

15s. I would have hoped for her. We have seen Becky be a bit

:45:10.:45:17.

inconsistent when she was younger. Like Dan Keatings she went to the

:45:18.:45:24.

Olympics in 2008 and didn't get the selection in 2012. She was teetering

:45:25.:45:28.

on whether to fight back and she has done so and is now reaping the

:45:29.:45:35.

rewards. Larissa Miller will be the gymnast after her. The

:45:36.:45:42.

second-highest qualifier. Becky was the highest qualifier. 14.683. The

:45:43.:45:59.

difficulty down a little bit? 16.4! 14.666, she is up on qualification.

:46:00.:46:10.

Representing Australia, Larrissa Miller. A finalist at the World

:46:11.:46:30.

Championships. She qualified second. Jumps straight to the high bar,

:46:31.:46:41.

lovely extension. Huge catch. Links two releases together. A pike in and

:46:42.:46:50.

out. Super high somersaults. Three big releases already. Locked solid

:46:51.:46:59.

handstand. Lovely line on the handstands. Increases the swaying,

:47:00.:47:16.

Phil, twisting, that is a strong bed -- swing. It is going to be very

:47:17.:47:24.

close. Not a highly difficulty score, but her execution was clean.

:47:25.:47:30.

Lovely line, clean. The precision... Quality of swaying,

:47:31.:47:38.

quality of line and accuracy. Will it be a winning formula? -- swing.

:47:39.:47:45.

We will have to wait and see. Focus and determination. Lovely, look at

:47:46.:48:04.

that. Keep the swing on the transfer. So many gymnasts struggle

:48:05.:48:10.

there. Beautiful line. It is worth talking about the handstand, because

:48:11.:48:16.

with those turns, you have to be at 12 o'clock. If you cannot include

:48:17.:48:28.

too many turns, you can do better. Lovely dismount. Lovely turn. They

:48:29.:48:36.

both included one peril wet, her and Rebecca Downie. -- piroutte. The

:48:37.:48:56.

score for Rebecca Downie is 14.666. It is not good enough. 14.5664

:48:57.:49:07.

Larrissa Miller. Rebecca Downie holes on. 38. -- Elsabeth Black. She

:49:08.:49:36.

is a great gymnast. She spends that somersault straight down to the low

:49:37.:49:41.

bar. Really building her difficulty up. She was really right above the

:49:42.:49:51.

bar, there was no question. There is the full piroutte. Love the

:49:52.:49:56.

dismount. Straight body with a half turn. Lovely work. She set up that

:49:57.:50:05.

beautifully. Lovely technique on the dismount. In qualification, she

:50:06.:50:18.

posted a 5.4. I think difficulty will be what makes the difference. I

:50:19.:50:30.

think there will be a similar score. She linked that very well. Two

:50:31.:50:45.

difficult moves. Lovely straight arms, good body shape. This was

:50:46.:50:56.

impressive, look at the height. She has very good energy. She creates

:50:57.:50:58.

energy. Lovely technique. has very good energy. She creates

:50:59.:51:08.

energy. Lovely Because these buyers are wooden or fibreglass, they do

:51:09.:51:15.

their hand and the gymnasts can use the bend of the bar 's -- bar 's. --

:51:16.:51:30.

bars. Different bars have different bounce. It is an anxious wait for

:51:31.:52:05.

Rebecca Downie. The first to go. Elsabeth Black, 13.7, a difficulty

:52:06.:52:12.

of 5.5, but execution very similar to the previous gymnasts. Now, the

:52:13.:52:32.

South African, Kristen Beckett. -- Kirsten Beckett. Leisurely turn,

:52:33.:52:39.

another gymnast who works with great energy. Into the forward element,

:52:40.:52:46.

stretches out, he was out, good work. -- heels out. She was the

:52:47.:52:58.

eighth highest qualifier. A good showing, second final of the day.

:52:59.:53:03.

She will not have such a high difficulty score. It was a good

:53:04.:53:15.

performance. Nice. Nice rotations. It enabled her to swaying from it --

:53:16.:53:35.

swing. It was a clean routine. Heads the handstand on the transfer. --

:53:36.:53:45.

hits. Just a question of difficulty. Look at that. The release was

:53:46.:53:55.

perfectly timed. Their heels driving backwards to give her rotation. --

:53:56.:54:08.

the heels. The coach there. The coach is allowed on the podium to do

:54:09.:54:15.

that. Did she not miss that in one of the competitions? She missed the

:54:16.:54:20.

dismount last night. She set it up well there. These gymnasts have had

:54:21.:54:27.

to turn around quickly. They were competing last night until after

:54:28.:54:31.

nine o'clock and they are back in again. Kirsten Beckett 12.933, she

:54:32.:54:39.

is in fourth place. Rebecca Downie leads. He is a gymnast who could

:54:40.:54:53.

threaten for medals. -- here is a gymnast. Georgia-Rose Brown, the

:54:54.:55:04.

third highest qualifier. This is her favourite apparat is. Lovely long

:55:05.:55:19.

line. -- apparat is. Passion apparatus. Front somersault --

:55:20.:55:31.

apparatus. Her feet are not quite above her head on the handstand.

:55:32.:55:37.

This is usually very nice. Beautifully done. Double front. She

:55:38.:55:42.

may not have the highest difficulty, but she will certainly

:55:43.:55:52.

be well up on execution. Superb dismount, what a way to wrap it up.

:55:53.:56:09.

A very tall gymnast. There it is, the connection there. Very nicely

:56:10.:56:30.

done. Into the fold turn, a fraction late will stop -- fool turn. -- full

:56:31.:56:42.

turn. Plenty of room for clearance.

:56:43.:56:54.

Slightly bent arms. You could not see it quite so much at normal

:56:55.:57:01.

speed. Her arms were quite bent. That was a cracker. Best landing so

:57:02.:57:18.

far. Georgia-Rose Brown is in fourth place. Rebecca Downie is still

:57:19.:57:26.

leading a head of Larrissa Miller. Still two more gymnast to come,

:57:27.:57:35.

including Ruby Harold. -- gymnasts. We have to change channels. Before

:57:36.:57:39.

we go, a brief reminder of the headlines. Some magical moments.

:57:40.:57:49.

Alex Dowsett one the gold medal in the members macro time trial with

:57:50.:57:54.

Geraint Thomas taking the bronze -- won. There was a third gold medal

:57:55.:58:02.

for Max Whitlock as he added the floor title to his individual, all

:58:03.:58:06.

around and team triumphs this afternoon. There was a golden

:58:07.:58:20.

hat-trick for Fragapane. Daniel Keatings has made history with

:58:21.:58:24.

Scotland's second ever gymnastics gold medal which came on the pommel

:58:25.:58:30.

horse. He says he will continue in the sport. Historic moment for

:58:31.:58:39.

Daniel Keatings because it was 12 years ago that they claimed a gold

:58:40.:58:45.

medal, Scotland is macro only other gold medal in gymnastics. He will be

:58:46.:58:51.

there to see him today -- Scotland's. A few years ago Daniel

:58:52.:58:57.
