:03:39.:04:16.

The Games. You can see exactly what is on at any given moment and take

:04:17.:04:20.

your pick. What a night it was at Hampden

:04:21.:04:26.

Park, despite the challenging weather. And one particularly

:04:27.:04:34.

memorable moments, courtesy of Eilidh Child.

:04:35.:04:43.

Roar of Hampden Park hoping to carry Eilidh Child to a medal. She has

:04:44.:04:52.

started well. Spencer, watching for her. Can she produce the sort of

:04:53.:04:59.

performance she normally does. Eilidh Child running a great race.

:05:00.:05:10.

In second place at the moment. Spencer leading it. Spencer

:05:11.:05:17.

attacking it. Eilidh Child clear at the moment. Spencer almost climbing

:05:18.:05:27.

over that one. The last barrier for Spencer of Jamaica. She will take

:05:28.:05:33.

the gold medal and Eilidh Child of Scotland takes the silver. Russell

:05:34.:05:39.

of Jamaica, the bronze medal. 54.12, the winning time. What a moment for

:05:40.:05:50.

Eilidh Child. A huge roar from the crowd.

:05:51.:06:01.

And here she is. Congratulations. As you stood on the medal podium, did

:06:02.:06:15.

moment? I tried to take a deep breath and embrace it and take it

:06:16.:06:19.

on. Thinking back, it does feel a bit of a blur. So much was going

:06:20.:06:27.

on, I did my lap of honour and saw my family. It was a bit of a dream.

:06:28.:06:33.

Go back to the evening began, did you have a good feeling going into

:06:34.:06:42.

the race? I knew I had been in good shape. I have been working on my

:06:43.:06:46.

stride pattern. I just had to go out there and execute the perfect race.

:06:47.:06:53.

I just thinking in my head, running your own race. Thankfully that is

:06:54.:06:59.

what I did. I think we can see you running it again. Stride pattern is

:07:00.:07:04.

important because you have got to be in exactly the right position for

:07:05.:07:10.

the hurdles. It is important you don't lose any momentum off the

:07:11.:07:15.

hurdle. As soon as you back off, it gives another athlete the chance to

:07:16.:07:23.

get away. Do you know all the steps, are you counting as you go along?

:07:24.:07:28.

From which ever like I take the hurdle with, I know how many strides

:07:29.:07:33.

I have done. Then I felt my legs going and I was trying to get to the

:07:34.:07:39.

finish line as soon as possible. I did not know what was going on

:07:40.:07:43.

around me. I wanted to make sure that if I wasn't going to get the

:07:44.:07:47.

gold medal, I was definitely going to get the silver. And you did. It

:07:48.:07:52.

has been fantastic for all of the athletes at Hampden Park. But you

:07:53.:07:57.

are different, because it is your face on all of the posters across

:07:58.:08:00.

the city? When I ran face on all of the posters across

:08:01.:08:11.

different in the final, it went up a notch, and I did not expect

:08:12.:08:15.

different in the final, it went up a that allowed. Was it unnerving

:08:16.:08:16.

different in the final, it went up a because it goes Wyatt at the start?

:08:17.:08:23.

Yes, a couple of times when you have gone in there, they are shouting

:08:24.:08:32.

your name. There you are afterwards, supporters and your

:08:33.:08:36.

your name. There you are afterwards, family. My family, they were in

:08:37.:08:41.

different parts of the stadium. Every 20 metres I was meeting

:08:42.:08:44.

somebody I knew, either a friend or a member of my money. It was lovely

:08:45.:08:50.

to share that moment with them. How did you deal with the pressure? It

:08:51.:08:56.

is a privilege to be on the posters, but it means the expectation is

:08:57.:09:04.

immense? I have had a really good support network around me and my

:09:05.:09:07.

coach has kept me grounded. I did some work with a sport psychologist,

:09:08.:09:14.

and he has gone through things with me and help me deal with the

:09:15.:09:20.

pressure and expectation. What I have been trying to do is think

:09:21.:09:25.

about it as another race. I had done so many 400 metres in my career...

:09:26.:09:31.

Not easy to do that, to think about it as just another race? Fantastic

:09:32.:09:37.

profile for your event, but it does have its challengers? It really

:09:38.:09:44.

does. The last couple of days has been hard. I have been going through

:09:45.:09:50.

mixed emotions. Gone from feeling really nervous, to being calm. Then

:09:51.:09:54.

going back to being really, really nervous. When I went on to the

:09:55.:10:03.

starting line I was calm and it was about executing the race and making

:10:04.:10:08.

sure it went to plan. What happens next, you will carry on to compete?

:10:09.:10:16.

The 400 by 400 relay. I will not be running the heats, but I think the

:10:17.:10:20.

girls we have put in the heats will do enough to make the final and I

:10:21.:10:24.

will come in tomorrow so hope the Lee I can rest today. So hopefully

:10:25.:10:30.

you can experience Hampden Park again tomorrow and you will be doing

:10:31.:10:36.

more competition soon? We have the European competition soon, so just

:10:37.:10:42.

over a week before we leave for them. I will go back to my base in

:10:43.:10:48.

Bath and get back into training and refocus. This will help? It will

:10:49.:10:56.

give you a fantastic boost? Yes, I will go to the European

:10:57.:11:00.

Championships knowing it will not be as much expectation on me, but I

:11:01.:11:05.

will enjoy that. I don't know how much you will be able to enjoy the

:11:06.:11:09.

game is beyond your own sports, but how do you feel it has gone? It has

:11:10.:11:17.

gone so well, the Scottish report that has been shown to all of the

:11:18.:11:23.

athletes has been amazing. -- Scottish support. All the athletics

:11:24.:11:31.

team watched Hannah Miley on the first day, and it kick-started

:11:32.:11:39.

everything else. Such a good feeling in team Scotland at the moment. We

:11:40.:11:43.

have put on such a good show and a lot of other athletes have compared

:11:44.:11:50.

this to the London Olympics. It is a huge compliment to Scotland and to

:11:51.:12:02.

Glasgow. You have played your part in delivering 14 Scotland and your

:12:03.:12:13.

home country. Enjoy wearing your medal and good luck for the next

:12:14.:12:15.

stage of Tom petition. Thank you very much indeed.

:12:16.:12:16.

Time to get the first of the live action. Yesterday we had some

:12:17.:12:18.

terrific in the men's para bowls. We can go to Kelvingrove now, and see

:12:19.:12:25.

what is in store. It is a very big day at the Kelvingrove Centre. It

:12:26.:12:29.

has just started raining, which will affect the bowlers. We have the

:12:30.:12:35.

final of the men's four, England taking on Scotland. Later at about

:12:36.:12:40.

5:30pm we have the men's singles final. Darren Burnett of Scotland, a

:12:41.:12:45.

policeman who had to get special permission to be playing today and

:12:46.:12:52.

he plays the Canadian. But this morning it is the final of the

:12:53.:12:56.

women's pair. England won the gold medal in Delhi and they are

:12:57.:13:00.

represented by Natalie Melmore and Jamie-Lea Winch. They have made a

:13:01.:13:06.

good start, but since then it has all been South Africa. They have

:13:07.:13:11.

taken control of the match and lead 7-1 after four ends. It is the

:13:12.:13:16.

higher score aggregate after 18 ends that wins. Let's go to our

:13:17.:13:19.

commentators. Hopefully it will not get any

:13:20.:13:40.

heavier than this. Needed to drop down a little bit more. Very good

:13:41.:13:54.

effort. Lovely weight. Very well matched. South Africa have done very

:13:55.:14:02.

well in bowls over the last few years. Winning a lot of medals.

:14:03.:14:23.

Looking good. The country must be very proud of their bowlers.

:14:24.:14:42.

Just needs to break back. There it goes. Not bad and it gives the skip

:14:43.:14:52.

chance to push into things knowing there is a lack bowl in position. --

:14:53.:14:58.

back bowls. not want to be too tight. But it is

:14:59.:15:40.

a little too tight. She has pushed the England bowl in.

:15:41.:15:47.

No real damage done. But it will make it very attractive now for

:15:48.:15:51.

Natalie Melmore to reach this. She could sit it out, take the Jack

:15:52.:16:00.

back. Got one waiting for it.

:16:01.:16:08.

She is playing with controlled weight. Hooks await a little bit but

:16:09.:16:13.

it is holding, that will do. Goodness me. That through ball is

:16:14.:16:19.

now starting to look very lonely indeed.

:16:20.:16:40.

A very wide shot she was trying to play but she has lost her bowl, it

:16:41.:16:49.

was too heavy. Trying to bring the Jack back and disturb their head.

:16:50.:16:56.

It has gone. A great shot. A certainty.

:16:57.:17:14.

A not to smile about yesterday, she was brilliant. -- a lot. Making sure

:17:15.:17:25.

with a second, some extra weight. They have now only one bowl in the

:17:26.:17:36.

head so this is not easy. I am not sure if it will make too

:17:37.:17:42.

much difference, with four down. You are always conscious of not

:17:43.:17:50.

attacking too much. That is a horrible result. Totally

:17:51.:18:14.

horrible result. She came away from her own bowl. She has actually

:18:15.:18:17.

It was looking good all the way. forced her way through a

:18:18.:18:26.

It was looking good all the way. Going through the gap.

:18:27.:18:31.

She won't be happy with that one but Going through the gap.

:18:32.:18:36.

got nothing for that. The opportunity was always going to

:18:37.:18:49.

present itself, just a taking it.

:18:50.:19:00.

A freebie on offer, but she has missed it.

:19:01.:19:06.

Indicating a four to England. That cataracts the four they lost in

:19:07.:19:19.

the seventh end. -- second end. They will be feeling a lot happier. They

:19:20.:19:27.

haven't been getting the results. It has changed now. I would expect this

:19:28.:19:34.

game to be tight from now on. They have had the initial jousting

:19:35.:19:40.

against each other in the first few ends to get into some sort of

:19:41.:19:45.

pattern of play. The players seem to have found their

:19:46.:19:49.

line quite well. Switching a little bit in the first couple of ends.

:19:50.:20:03.

A much shorter name jack. -- length. It is an art in itself, casting the

:20:04.:20:21.

jack, one that is often forgotten. It is important when you have a

:20:22.:20:30.

weight change, that you can put it the length that the team wants.

:20:31.:20:53.

It makes the case for specialist leads, players who are used to

:20:54.:21:04.

casting the jack day in, day out, in batches. Bringing players in who

:21:05.:21:14.

skips. I always believe the lead in particular is a specialist position.

:21:15.:21:17.

I would certainly agree with that. It has got the weight, it looks

:21:18.:21:22.

good. Once a bowl gets in front of the

:21:23.:22:00.

jack, it is very difficult to get it away.

:22:01.:22:06.

I think that may have been heading towards her own bowl.

:22:07.:22:11.

We have now moved on. None of those are a long way from

:22:12.:23:02.

the jack, they are all short, making it a little difficult for the skips

:23:03.:23:11.

from the mat. The advantage of being down there is seeing the shots

:23:12.:23:24.

required. The players are generally staying

:23:25.:23:33.

away from playing heavy shots. Goodness me, that was an adventurous

:23:34.:23:35.

weight. It looked like it was tracking well.

:23:36.:23:50.

The edge helped. That gives Natalie a start. That

:23:51.:24:15.

would have been good. She might have been tempted with a forehand because

:24:16.:24:20.

it was her own bowl coming in, but a stain on the hand that is the most

:24:21.:24:23.

consistent. You can see from the line they have

:24:24.:24:29.

been taking, doing very well, all players.

:24:30.:24:33.

That has opened the door a little bit. Pushed the short one out of the

:24:34.:24:40.

way. And given Natalie a chance to come through.

:24:41.:24:49.

Just under it. She will be close to the jack. A super shot. The door was

:24:50.:25:00.

open just slightly by South Africa. And Natalie thought, I will have a

:25:01.:25:05.

piece of that, thank you very much. It trundled through. Taking all the

:25:06.:25:07.

danger away. Tracking well, it didn't have the

:25:08.:25:36.

weight. It has stopped short, second short. Not a lot of damage done.

:25:37.:25:45.

More importantly for England, after picking up a four, they have got a

:25:46.:25:53.

single. You always want to do that when you score.

:25:54.:26:02.

Look at that, picking up the jack. She knew it was there but it was

:26:03.:26:10.

hidden from the mat. She played down the length hoping for an edge.

:26:11.:26:27.

Jamie Lee bowling the jack a little further than Natalie would have

:26:28.:26:30.

liked. They are getting good bowls in there

:26:31.:27:09.

all the time. I have played with the odd lead way you are not sure where

:27:10.:27:24.

the jack will go. -- where. Just thinking back to recent matches I

:27:25.:27:28.

have played. Just play it wherever you want to!

:27:29.:27:38.

A better line. It has a chance. A little tap. Kept the bowl in.

:27:39.:29:19.

Finishing in a good position, it would have picked up the jack.

:29:20.:29:56.

lady was supporting. Good line as well. Starting to build up a little

:29:57.:30:02.

bit against South Africa. Caught the front bowl, but it has

:30:03.:30:29.

opened it up. Should be able to get through now. Down on a good line.

:30:30.:30:42.

Needs to miss the blue. That has closed it again! There was a gap.

:30:43.:30:49.

Just makes it a little bit more difficult in terms of judging the

:30:50.:30:58.

wait. Have two allowed the bowl to bend on the bias. This is all about

:30:59.:31:09.

contact. It was a good effort. Lovely weight to get to the jack.

:31:10.:31:20.

If Natalie can find a way just underneath that or give it a good

:31:21.:31:31.

push. Put the another shot. It is difficult to tell.

:31:32.:31:43.

Colleen Piketh is coming to look at this. Bowls have been catching and

:31:44.:31:54.

edging on everything. Best one has been round the front. That is not

:31:55.:32:02.

easy. It is not easy. They might be a shaft up on the other hand. --

:32:03.:32:15.

shot up. If you get caught on the front one with the draw, the bowl

:32:16.:32:21.

will stop dead. It is not easy to get out of. You have to play this

:32:22.:32:27.

with confidence. Got to be looking to draw four seconds on this

:32:28.:32:28.

occasion. -- for second. I am surprised she is going up to

:32:29.:33:02.

the management. She obviously has her ideas. Just wants to run it past

:33:03.:33:12.

him, I suppose. Three options. Take your choice. Draw the shot, hit it

:33:13.:33:19.

or play it through. It really isn't any more complicated than that.

:33:20.:33:30.

Might be just a bit of affirmation about what she wants to play. She

:33:31.:33:38.

certainly has a chance. Did not want that front one. Needed to be under

:33:39.:33:46.

that. Did not fancy that shot on the backhand. But she would have stayed

:33:47.:33:55.

on the forehand. -- thought she would have.

:33:56.:34:03.

STUDIO: A very tight match. This is the gold medal match. England facing

:34:04.:34:12.

South Africa. We are going to leave this for a moment but coverage

:34:13.:34:14.

continues on the red button if you want to carry on watching this

:34:15.:34:20.

match. The bronze medal match in the lawn bowls pairs is available to

:34:21.:34:26.

watch now and that is live on BBC Three. We will be going to the table

:34:27.:34:36.

tennis with the competition entering its final stages. Let's go out to

:34:37.:34:48.

the Scots screened SportsCenter. Tin-Tin Ho, who was in the mixed

:34:49.:34:53.

doubles. Today she is in the women's doubles and they are taking

:34:54.:34:59.

on Jian Lay and Miao Miao. The commentator is Paul Hand.

:35:00.:35:21.

She has another to consolidate and stretch the lead, Miao Miao.

:35:22.:35:32.

Splendid points. Fierce hitting from both teams. Caroline is studying

:35:33.:36:05.

law. She is a member of the Teeside University elite athlete's team.

:36:06.:36:11.

That includes funding, physio care and she speaks about making the game

:36:12.:36:12.

more aggressive now. quick, assertive doubles to conserve

:36:13.:36:57.

her energy for her up and coming semifinal. After this match we have

:36:58.:37:12.

men's singles third round. The Australians, two points from the

:37:13.:37:17.

opening game here in this best of five-game match. Bidding for a place

:37:18.:37:34.

in the quarterfinals. Game point, Miao Miao serving. What an emphatic

:37:35.:37:37.

put away from the 41-year-old. I haven't told the pen holder grip

:37:38.:38:31.

is sufficient close to the net. They can get good angles. As you see with

:38:32.:38:38.

the wrist manipulation and the grip they have. Real forte of Jian Lay,

:38:39.:38:54.

and Tin-Tin Ho, of course. Miao Miao on the Australian team, she is very

:38:55.:39:01.

much the killer on the team, as is Karina Le Fevre for the English

:39:02.:39:03.

team. Some say it is the slight chink in

:39:04.:39:41.

the armour of Jian Lay, her forehand can be a bit flat at times.

:39:42.:39:52.

Testament to what I was saying. Great forehand flick return.

:39:53.:40:00.

Testament to what I was saying. return winners. On it like a flash.

:40:01.:40:04.

Testament to what I was saying. Poised, full of intent. Picture of

:40:05.:40:16.

focus. While! Miao Miao on that as well. Great pounds. -- pounds. Three

:40:17.:40:27.

consecutive winners from the Australian team - make up for. What

:40:28.:40:34.

a run of points for the Australians. Getting all

:40:35.:40:55.

She is an aggressive player and she moves well but did not get her body

:40:56.:41:02.

around that one. The team that started as strong

:41:03.:41:32.

favourites, starting to race away with this a little. Just pegged back

:41:33.:41:36.

a bit there, Karina Le Fevre. They need to stem the tide of

:41:37.:42:07.

errors, the English duo in this race to three games. Tin-Tin Ho, with the

:42:08.:42:19.

second of the service. You can see the dexterity of Jian Lay's wrist.

:42:20.:42:29.

Hammering that return down the line. So versatile and tough to

:42:30.:42:36.

read. An expressionless. You don't get to know her emotions. Very

:42:37.:42:38.

difficult to play against in that regard. Two points away in the

:42:39.:42:47.

second game. That will put them two thirds on their way to the wind. --

:42:48.:42:59.

win. Experience telling. The green and gold are in the ascendancy. Two

:43:00.:43:04.

thirds of the way there. Solid start to this match. The youngsters with

:43:05.:43:10.

plenty to ponder against Jian Lay and Miao Miao of Australia.

:43:11.:43:52.

The coach is particularly animated. He understands the gravitas of the

:43:53.:44:04.

situation. Things running away too quickly from an English. The

:44:05.:44:09.

Australians have only conceded nine points. Karina Le Fevre to serve.

:44:10.:44:16.

Beginning of the third game. Incredible turnaround. How did she

:44:17.:45:25.

get that smash back? Going to look at it again. What a reflex from Jian

:45:26.:45:35.

Lay. Incredible turnaround. Time-out has been called by Alan Cooke 14

:45:36.:45:45.

England. They are delighted at the way they are seeing the bowl.

:45:46.:46:09.

over this match already. They were favourites from the start. The

:46:10.:46:23.

fifth-seeded duo. Really imposing themselves out there now.

:46:24.:46:42.

Ever the aggressors, the Australians. The youngsters are very

:46:43.:46:51.

much up against it now, trailing four points in the third game.

:46:52.:47:01.

The school board is strangling and stifling their creativity and

:47:02.:47:16.

imagination reaction matched -- the score board is strangling their

:47:17.:47:18.

creativity and imagination. Two points away from the match, the

:47:19.:47:41.

Australian duo. Jian Fang Lay will be delighted. She has conserved her

:47:42.:47:50.

energy. They have played a really efficient, brilliant match, frankly.

:47:51.:47:57.

They got on the front foot from the start.

:47:58.:48:03.

There it is, then, in no time at all, the Australian duo when. --

:48:04.:48:23.

win. They are now assured a place in the semifinals. They will probably

:48:24.:48:28.

run into the second seeds. -- quarterfinals.

Australia, playing for a four -- for a place in the quarterfinals.

:48:40.:48:45.

Tin-Tin Ho is still in the mixed doubles. We saw her play in that

:48:46.:48:50.

yesterday. Her next match is a semifinal with her partner Liam

:48:51.:48:55.

Pitchford, later today. We will still see her compete in the table

:48:56.:48:56.

tennis. Follow all the action as it unfolds

:48:57.:49:13.

in Glasgow, share every moment with 17 streams of live sport. Keep

:49:14.:49:22.

up-to-date with medal alerts and tables, join the conversation. The

:49:23.:49:28.

Commonwealth Games, be part of it, across the BBC.

:49:29.:49:35.

I am excited about being in the tent.

:49:36.:50:20.

Nothing has changed here, it is incredibly tight. England got off to

:50:21.:50:27.

a good start. South Africa were leading 7-1 at one stage, but

:50:28.:50:33.

England got a big score. They took the lead briefly. Now, South Africa

:50:34.:50:40.

are level again. Nine ends. Natalie Melmore and Jamie-Lea Winch trying

:50:41.:50:47.

to win a medal for England. They are up against a very good South African

:50:48.:50:52.

pair in Tracy-Lee Botha and Collen Piketh. Let us rejoin our

:50:53.:50:57.

commentators Sharyn at David Gauke. Piketh. Let us rejoin our

:50:58.:51:06.

-- and A very good effort. A lot better,

:51:07.:51:45.

moving the jack towards the back bowl.

:51:46.:52:19.

Jamie-Lea has a chance, another touch of the jack.

:52:20.:52:39.

Collen Piketh. A very experienced player, from Johannesburg. She has

:52:40.:53:27.

been playing the game for a considerable time at the highest

:53:28.:53:28.

level. She may well have got a shot out of

:53:29.:53:52.

it. Her hobbies, reading, scrap

:53:53.:54:10.

booking. That is unusual. She will have something after this event for

:54:11.:54:13.

her scrapbook. A good effort.

:54:14.:54:28.

Natalie, not needing to change too much from her last.

:54:29.:54:36.

Colleen, coming down to have a look. Probably a good idea on this

:54:37.:54:55.

occasion, it has changed quite a lot since she delivered her first.

:54:56.:55:12.

Nothing from the marker at the moment to indicate the line.

:55:13.:55:21.

It could well be two for South Africa. If that is the case, there

:55:22.:55:29.

will be serious thoughts about the back position, dropping just

:55:30.:55:32.

slightly in the line. She has gone quite wide, so she may

:55:33.:56:12.

be looking to be around the back, for cover.

:56:13.:56:17.

That is a handy ball. Probably very wise. In that situation you either

:56:18.:56:23.

go deep or try to drop one in short. The blocker has to be

:56:24.:56:29.

absolutely perfect. The only problem is not playing the

:56:30.:56:43.

blog is you are leaving it wide open for Natalie Melmore to get into it.

:56:44.:56:50.

She is in the area. That is a help.

:56:51.:56:59.

It certainly got one. It could be a measure. Only getting one.

:57:00.:57:13.

Tracy-Lee, she has better eyesight than most of us! That is what our

:57:14.:57:25.

ring says as well. The last delivery sadly producing

:57:26.:57:33.

this one. It almost took the front bowl out as well.

:57:34.:57:39.

A nice little run for South Africa. Three ends in a row, picking four

:57:40.:57:42.

shots. A lovely opening bowl from

:57:43.:58:23.

Tracy-Lee. That is what you want to do. Get one

:58:24.:58:56.

closer. That is the way it works. In a bronze medal play-off. Northern

:58:57.:59:03.

Ireland have picked up a four, to level the scores.

:59:04.:59:11.

Very good bowling here. A heavy bowl.

:59:12.:59:46.

You get an idea how wide a line it is, it is coming down night, the big

:59:47.:59:55.

sweep. That is a good bowl.

:59:56.:01:32.

Giving it a chance. Just a slight edge. Too far. Unlucky. It is hard

:01:33.:03:03.

to criticise. I don't want to criticise, she had to draw in

:03:04.:03:09.

another shot. Could not afford to leave it. She wasn't a long way over

:03:10.:03:15.

with the weight. It was only just reaching. It is easy to criticise,

:03:16.:03:22.

but this is not a particularly easy rink. Needed to be under that. Her

:03:23.:03:32.

bowling behind, it just did not go her way that time. A lot of

:03:33.:03:39.

reaction. If you look at the mat and voles in the head, it is not easy

:03:40.:03:45.

the way it is sitting. -- bowls. Latterly moving onto the backhand.

:03:46.:03:54.

Going for the back position. It is hard to get it perfect but that is a

:03:55.:04:02.

good bowl. Colleen Piketh is going to have to play the same sort of

:04:03.:04:08.

all. I'll go bowls, by its very nature, quite complex because of the

:04:09.:04:14.

weather conditions. These greens have been immaculately prepared, but

:04:15.:04:22.

nothing is perfect. The margins are slightly different in terms of the

:04:23.:04:25.

out door game. Similar bowl. Has to trust the swing

:04:26.:04:49.

without putting extra weight on. Just put that extra bit of weight

:04:50.:04:59.

on. Little bit of a gift for England and they will not play their last

:05:00.:05:04.

bowl. We'll be happy to take the single. One shot. Always good to

:05:05.:05:24.

have a single in concrete. You like that statue don't you? It took me a

:05:25.:05:30.

long time to find out where that statue was. Then you discovered it

:05:31.:05:36.

was in Glasgow. Studio-macro we will be leaving this

:05:37.:05:41.

match for a little while on BBC One. There is about an hour to go. Very

:05:42.:05:51.

evenly matched they are. You can continue watching this I pressing

:05:52.:05:58.

the red button. There is another match in lawn bowls live on BBC

:05:59.:06:04.

Three now. Ron 's medal match, jersey taking on the Northern

:06:05.:06:13.

Ireland pair. Right now, the score is 9-9. Jersey are chasing their

:06:14.:06:20.

first medal of The Games. Only three days of competition left

:06:21.:06:24.

in Glasgow but many sports will be looking at their performance here is

:06:25.:06:28.

the focus shifts to the 2016 Olympics. Matthew Pinsent has been

:06:29.:06:32.

assessing their relative health with the opening ceremony in Rio 735 days

:06:33.:06:44.

away. In a few days, we will cross over an

:06:45.:06:49.

Olympic threshold and officially be closer to Rio 2016 than we are to

:06:50.:06:55.

London 2012. Glasgow has been a wonderful reminder of what we as a

:06:56.:07:04.

nation can do, both hosting and competing at a multisport events. It

:07:05.:07:10.

will be an English triathlon double. But elite sport is hard. Far from

:07:11.:07:16.

the medals and the cheering crowds, performance director 's will be

:07:17.:07:19.

assessing where we are on the road to Rio. How much information can we

:07:20.:07:27.

really get from the results in Glasgow? Daniel Keatings, swinging

:07:28.:07:35.

straight, swinging clean and keeping his rhythm. Gymnastics is definitely

:07:36.:07:43.

stronger than it was in London. It is a very exclusive club. Max

:07:44.:07:49.

Whitlock is over 90 consistently. So he is top three in the world. What a

:07:50.:07:57.

wonderful swim that is an team England win the final race. We have

:07:58.:08:05.

never won the men's 400 x 400 relay, the Australians have always

:08:06.:08:21.

wanted. There are some sports, that is good as the results have been,

:08:22.:08:25.

will not a contested in the Olympics. It is thank you from

:08:26.:08:31.

Glasgow but no thank you in Rio for netball, bowls and squash. The gold

:08:32.:08:39.

medal goes to Nick Matthew. The sports but do crossover, both

:08:40.:08:44.

Commonwealth and Olympics have shown up varying degrees of success and is

:08:45.:08:49.

concerned. Sir Bradley Wiggins and England have to settle for the

:08:50.:08:54.

silver. Always watershed moments, London was going to be it. Lost

:08:55.:09:01.

leadership, big talent and it will take time to rebuild and it is not

:09:02.:09:10.

certain it will happen in time for Rio. Coming of age for the

:09:11.:09:18.

20-year-old. We have a whole new crop of people coming through, which

:09:19.:09:21.

is encouraging. New names, 19, 20 years of age and at Rio, what they

:09:22.:09:25.

have learned here will stand them in good stead in two years. Olympic

:09:26.:09:26.

sport is shaping up. They are confident we are benchmarking at

:09:27.:09:32.

least as well at this point as we were out of London. It is a good

:09:33.:09:36.

sign. Well Glasgow has offered healthy competition, not all events

:09:37.:09:41.

are world-class, banks to the absence of some superpower,

:09:42.:09:47.

non-Commonwealth nations. That is not to say some performances would

:09:48.:09:50.

not stand up when the world comes calling. This is the Commonwealth

:09:51.:09:54.

Games and not the world Championships. All we can look at

:09:55.:09:59.

the times swimmers are doing. They are world-class. We had four

:10:00.:10:04.

swimmers ranked number one in the world. The competition within the

:10:05.:10:10.

British team is so strong, not only are they

:10:11.:10:10.

British team is so strong, not fighting for places to get on the

:10:11.:10:16.

team to go to places like the world Championships and the Olympics, but

:10:17.:10:19.

they are so dominant and the whole world is looking at our home nations

:10:20.:10:25.

and asking how are they getting those results and producing these

:10:26.:10:29.

performances, not only with such difficulty but such good execution.

:10:30.:10:36.

One thing is for sure in sport, you cannot stand still. So for all of

:10:37.:10:40.

the success and disappointments, there is always room for improvement

:10:41.:10:45.

or a medal of any colour could be further away than ever. It is good

:10:46.:10:49.

to have ambition and I hope we come back with medals from Rio. But it

:10:50.:10:55.

will be tougher and we should not be naive about it. It is a tall order.

:10:56.:11:00.

Athletics will never bring you 12 medals. But I can see is winning two

:11:01.:11:07.

or three gold medals and five or six other medals and improve what we did

:11:08.:11:12.

in London. Jodie Williams gets the silver medal. Bianca Williams, the

:11:13.:11:20.

bronze medal. Lots of swimmers have stepped up to the plate. They will

:11:21.:11:25.

be in their prime in two years time, if not, they have another four years

:11:26.:11:38.

until the next Olympics. What it was from 2007 through to two -- 2012,

:11:39.:11:43.

cannot be the same again. They are trying to find out what that is.

:11:44.:11:49.

They don't have the strongest leadership in place to make the

:11:50.:11:52.

right decisions. He has pulled it out of the bag. Now, we are getting

:11:53.:12:01.

more specialists. You have Louis Smith, who you will always associate

:12:02.:12:06.

with the pommel horse. Now we have Louis Smith on six pieces of

:12:07.:12:10.

apparatus, so it means we have a shout on every piece. Where does

:12:11.:12:25.

that leave us? UK Sport have been public to be the first nation to win

:12:26.:12:29.

more Olympic medals at The Games after hosting. That, by any measure

:12:30.:12:36.

comes under the heading of ambitious.

:12:37.:12:42.

I am delighted Dame Kelly Holmes, ambitious.

:12:43.:12:55.

president of team England is here. How many positive lessons can we

:12:56.:13:01.

take from Rio because this is not a fully global competition? You are

:13:02.:13:07.

right. I think what we can take from the experience of Glasgow is that

:13:08.:13:11.

each of the teams for me seem better prepared. In a cycle of four years

:13:12.:13:18.

from Olympics to Olympics, there are a lot of changes. There are those

:13:19.:13:26.

who retire and it opens up doors for new blood. When you have a

:13:27.:13:28.

Commonwealth Games, which is the only other multisport event outside

:13:29.:13:32.

of the Olympics, the nations are split. We have seven nations and the

:13:33.:13:38.

Great Britain athletes are split across but it allows the sport to

:13:39.:13:42.

add extra athletes into the teams to see how they do. So more people get

:13:43.:13:48.

the chance to compete at a Commonwealth Games than they do at

:13:49.:13:52.

the Olympics. The conclusion Matthew Pinsent came to, gymnastics and

:13:53.:13:57.

swimming have been the ones who have taken people by surprise?

:13:58.:14:02.

Gymnastics, swimming and judo, I would add into that. That has been

:14:03.:14:09.

really good for the teams across the board. Gymnastics is an amazing

:14:10.:14:13.

event where people are so in awe of the capabilities of these young

:14:14.:14:18.

people and what they have done. We have seen across the nations,

:14:19.:14:20.

especially England and Scotland, some good, good talents. Because

:14:21.:14:29.

they are young, it bodes really well the Rio, because this is a big

:14:30.:14:36.

platform to move forward. Also fantastic experience of competing

:14:37.:14:40.

under this spotlight? Absolutely. It is the only other multisport event

:14:41.:14:45.

outside of the Olympic Games. It allows you to have experience of the

:14:46.:14:50.

Olympics and a sense of the village. It is an amazing experience that can

:14:51.:14:57.

blow it or make it for an athlete. Anything about the Commonwealth

:14:58.:15:01.

Games is a replica of the Olympics, but on a smaller stage. It enables

:15:02.:15:07.

them to have the atmosphere to work with other people from sports who

:15:08.:15:12.

are established, so they have been to these major championships. You

:15:13.:15:18.

have young blood in with champions. You are all part of a team. It was

:15:19.:15:23.

like that or you because you had a major breakthrough at a Commonwealth

:15:24.:15:29.

Games in 1994? You have made me feel old now, but 20 years ago...

:15:30.:15:37.

Experience. I was 24 years old but new to the senior scene because I

:15:38.:15:43.

was a full-time soldier as well. When I went to the Commonwealth

:15:44.:15:48.

Games, it Lumia way. That opportunity to be part of a team.

:15:49.:15:54.

One of my abiding memories was not just winning gold medals, but

:15:55.:15:57.

sharing an apartment with Sally Gunnell. She was Olympic champion

:15:58.:16:02.

from 1992, world Championships and world record-holder from 1993 and I

:16:03.:16:09.

was in the same apartment. I remember thinking, I cannot believe

:16:10.:16:12.

I am in the team let alone sharing with Sally Gunnell. What happens on

:16:13.:16:20.

the sidelines, does it feed into performance? We did not have eyes

:16:21.:16:25.

that's back then, but she used to have a cold shower. I don't do cold

:16:26.:16:33.

or cold water, but on this occasion she went and won her gold medal. I

:16:34.:16:44.

was going out for my 1500 metres so I had a cold shower before and I

:16:45.:16:52.

won. And I thought, I have learned something from somebody. Now, all

:16:53.:17:03.

these athletes have a wheelie bin three quarters full of ice. That is

:17:04.:17:12.

a simple one now. Now sports have become so professionalised, you have

:17:13.:17:22.

hot and cold baths, hot and cold therapy. What you don't not see is

:17:23.:17:28.

behind-the-scenes preparation -- do not see. All of the in-depth

:17:29.:17:36.

preparation that goes on right until we see them form here. Everything

:17:37.:17:42.

from reassessments with the physiotherapists, nutrition, making

:17:43.:17:47.

sure their warm up is perfected. It is much more professionalised.

:17:48.:17:53.

Across all the sports, really. Some sports are struggling still with

:17:54.:18:00.

funding, shooting, squash, netball, because they are not in the

:18:01.:18:06.

Olympics. Sports have a different set up, different influence, funding

:18:07.:18:12.

does make a big difference. It is the finer detail. When you come to a

:18:13.:18:17.

village like this, we are help -- we can help them prepare better.

:18:18.:18:25.

I want to ask you particularly about athletics, the fantastic

:18:26.:18:30.

performances we have seen. Last night, also from the early days of

:18:31.:18:36.

athletics. Adam Gemili was stunning when we saw him in Hampden Park.

:18:37.:18:43.

Jodie Williams. Bianca Williams. They were amazing. I was so pleased

:18:44.:18:53.

for Adam. He is such a nice guy. Such a nice man. But he seems very

:18:54.:18:58.

professional. He really wants it and he gives it all. It was so nice for

:18:59.:19:04.

somebody who has everything that it takes to be a champion, actually

:19:05.:19:08.

feel like they are achieving through that work. Getting a medal gives you

:19:09.:19:12.

hope for the next one. Your time is crucial. Even if you

:19:13.:19:18.

finish on the podium, you and your performance directors have to look

:19:19.:19:22.

at your time and assess your chances in the Olympics.

:19:23.:19:25.

What is different in the common while James is sports have different

:19:26.:19:32.

standards. But there will be qualifications for the Olympics. For

:19:33.:19:36.

some sports, they may not have hit the standard required for the

:19:37.:19:39.

Olympics even if they got a medal here, which is based on times and

:19:40.:19:44.

selections. That does not mean they don't have a chance for that. They

:19:45.:19:50.

have the European Championships, that becomes the next level of

:19:51.:19:55.

accommodation for some events. Then the World Championships. -- level of

:19:56.:20:00.

competition. Looking last night at Hampden Park,

:20:01.:20:07.

people like Jodie Williams, Jazmin Sawyers. There was no expectation

:20:08.:20:14.

Jazmin Sawyers would get a medal and she was able to enjoy it. It will

:20:15.:20:20.

never be like that for her again. That is where things change. Some

:20:21.:20:24.

people are able to deal with the expectation and pressure from being

:20:25.:20:30.

in the limelight. There are a lot of athletes here who would have

:20:31.:20:38.

performed out of their skin and put themselves out in the public

:20:39.:20:45.

domain, being a medallist. It is now them to almost take it to that next

:20:46.:20:50.

level. In their individual sport will know where they sit within the

:20:51.:20:56.

global landscape. Is important. Those who have stepped up in

:20:57.:21:00.

commonwealth status hopefully have ambition to go further.

:21:01.:21:05.

With the right support. Looking at swimming, we have seen then proud,

:21:06.:21:18.

Ross Murdoch. -- Ben Proud. What is the key to developing them?

:21:19.:21:25.

My personal opinion is, when you have achieved something at this

:21:26.:21:28.

level, you have to know this is your starting point and not your end

:21:29.:21:36.

point, if you are new to the sport. You have to keep that hunger and

:21:37.:21:41.

belief you can be better. It is right to look at the

:21:42.:21:45.

belief you can be better. It is and asked what your ambition is. A

:21:46.:21:49.

sport like swimming, it has had its ups and downs. It wasn't as

:21:50.:21:52.

sport like swimming, it has had its successful as it could have been at

:21:53.:21:56.

the Olympic games. It was a low point. This has been good to them,

:21:57.:22:01.

the Olympic games. It was a low it has enabled them to look across

:22:02.:22:05.

the board, to look at all of the nations, there is a mass of swimmers

:22:06.:22:08.

doing so well. A critical time nations, there is a mass of swimmers

:22:09.:22:13.

of making that transition nations, there is a mass of swimmers

:22:14.:22:17.

identifying talent to keeping it and making it better.

:22:18.:22:24.

There have been so many fantastic spectator moments. How important is

:22:25.:22:33.

that for the athletes. Clare Balding was seeing if we host more swimming

:22:34.:22:36.

in this country, you provide platforms for these swimmers which

:22:37.:22:42.

spurred them on. Yes, recognition and exposure is

:22:43.:22:45.

vital for sport, across influence on what happens. Funding

:22:46.:23:00.

comes from success, definitely. But also, when a sport is high-profile,

:23:01.:23:07.

it allows people to think people are interested with, we should make sure

:23:08.:23:16.

we have champions come through. Glasgow had put on edge medicine,

:23:17.:23:20.

Web games. I have competed in three myself. They have pulled it off. The

:23:21.:23:29.

fans have been fantastic. The venues have been great. The fans have been

:23:30.:23:31.

cheering for have been great. The fans have been

:23:32.:23:38.

worried it would be about blue and white, but not at all. The

:23:39.:23:45.

volunteers making the Games successful. Having performances you

:23:46.:23:50.

can cheer on. I have been cheering everybody. I love performance,

:23:51.:23:57.

seeing the expression of joy, seeing talent. I know what detail goes into

:23:58.:24:02.

performing, the hours, heart ache, the glory, combined. When you do

:24:03.:24:09.

something well, it makes it worthwhile.

:24:10.:24:14.

If we look at the medal table, England are at the top.

:24:15.:24:20.

We are used to seeing Australia at the top.

:24:21.:24:24.

We are, at this point. I have to be careful what I say. I personally

:24:25.:24:36.

think that England have done brilliantly. They really have.

:24:37.:24:41.

Australia, of course, are a nation to be recognised, they are always

:24:42.:24:48.

number one by a lot more medals. I cannot say it is not going to change

:24:49.:24:52.

but I can say I think that England have done better than they have done

:24:53.:24:58.

in this stage of the Games, we are so far ahead, we have a good chance

:24:59.:25:03.

of winning. Can England get another medal at the

:25:04.:25:11.

athletics, the 800 metres final? We have Jessica Judd and Jenny

:25:12.:25:16.

Meadows from England, Lynsey Sharp from Scotland. Watching the heats,

:25:17.:25:24.

we have the Kenyan who would probably be written down as

:25:25.:25:27.

favourite. But if Jessica Judd continued running, a young girl with

:25:28.:25:35.

a mature head, she can win a medal. And the weather does make a

:25:36.:25:38.

difference. All of them are running in the same

:25:39.:25:45.

weather. It is about tactical awareness, not getting boxed in,

:25:46.:25:48.

having confidence. With Jenny Meadows, she is an established

:25:49.:26:01.

athlete. She has won medals before. I think she won't give up the

:26:02.:26:06.

fight. If I look at current form, Jessica Judd looks on form. The last

:26:07.:26:21.

100m for Sharp, it was do or die, and she went storming down. She was

:26:22.:26:30.

lucky to get a fastest loser place. We will be watching Hampden Park

:26:31.:26:34.

closely today. Thank you. You are going to the athletes village.

:26:35.:26:41.

I am going to the dining hall, every food from around the nations. I am

:26:42.:26:46.

not an athlete anymore so I can have what I want!

:26:47.:26:57.

Thank you for coming in. Let us go to the Scotstoun Sports Centre and

:26:58.:27:04.

the men's single, Ryan Jenkins taking on for drink or of England.

:27:05.:27:06.

Commentating is Paul Hand. Paul Drinkhall the first game. They

:27:07.:27:33.

are having a time out. We join them as they go into the second.

:27:34.:28:18.

Simply brilliant from Jenkins! Position hitting -- precision.

:28:19.:28:50.

Despite the loss of that very first -- close first game. Both men are

:28:51.:28:53.

demonstrating such mental fortitude.

:28:54.:29:11.

Fortune favours the brave, they say, none more so than Paul Drinkhall. It

:29:12.:29:20.

is a real treat. Jenkins not coming out the right

:29:21.:29:35.

side of the big points at the moment. It is costing him dear. It

:29:36.:29:44.

is frustrating for him. He knows, you had to admire Paul drink all,

:29:45.:29:48.

his ability to come through the crunch. I guess that is why his

:29:49.:29:51.

ranking is 85, and Jenkins is 250. Nicky Jarvis, the coach, there. The

:29:52.:30:17.

father of Matt Jarvis. A sporting gene which is very strong running

:30:18.:30:18.

through their family. Drinkhall, in the ascendancy. Both

:30:19.:30:57.

games have been tightly contested. Has Jenkins got more in the tank?

:30:58.:31:18.

Not entirely happy with the ball. Noticed something just prior to

:31:19.:31:22.

serving. We'll have a change and a little

:31:23.:31:36.

knock up. We will resume, Ryan Jenkins with

:31:37.:31:56.

his second serve will stop. Little shout of disapproval verse

:31:57.:32:31.

from Drinkhall. As hard as Ryan Jenkins has tried,

:32:32.:33:08.

he cannot seem to extend the lead any more than the margin of one

:33:09.:33:09.

point. Can he build from here? Drinkhall

:33:10.:33:27.

has done so well to contain him. So far!

:33:28.:34:25.

than Paul Drinkhall. 35, against the 24-year-old. Plays in Germany. As do

:34:26.:34:47.

so many players now. Loves spending time with friends and Amberley when

:34:48.:34:54.

he is away from the table, Drinkhall. -- friends and family.

:34:55.:35:18.

You have two credit Drinkhall for containing this man. He has played

:35:19.:35:20.

brilliantly today. Terrific loop backhand from Jenkins.

:35:21.:36:01.

The man who does so well, into the ninth of ten days and has been

:36:02.:36:06.

watching 80% of his compatriots matches. To do that and take care of

:36:07.:36:17.

a performance like this is Admiral. Still cannot put a run of more than

:36:18.:36:25.

two points together consecutive league against Paul Drinkhall. --

:36:26.:36:36.

consecutively. Frustration beginning to show with Jenkins. Furious

:36:37.:36:44.

missing that, which leaves Drinkhall two points away from a quarterfinal

:36:45.:36:49.

place in this meant's singles events.

:36:50.:36:56.

Brilliant redirection up the line from Jenkins. Look at that.

:36:57.:37:24.

Margins in this game are so minimal, it is frightening. Just a

:37:25.:37:34.

millimetre here, you miss the target or find the net. A laps in

:37:35.:37:40.

concentration, a moment of luck and the whole game can just swivel on

:37:41.:37:49.

its axis. 9-9 here. Brilliant from Jenkins.

:37:50.:38:02.

Game point to Jenkins, only for the second time in the match. He could

:38:03.:38:09.

not convert the last one, can he do so here?

:38:10.:38:22.

Opportunity snuffed out by Drinkhall again. He has played the big moments

:38:23.:38:30.

admirably. Brilliant point from Drinkhall. Got

:38:31.:38:46.

on the front foot early in the rally. Took the Welshman's time and

:38:47.:39:00.

space away. Match point, Drinkhall. Beg your pardon, it is not it is the

:39:01.:39:02.

best of seven. So it is game point. Brilliant from Paul Drinkhall.

:39:03.:39:21.

Demonstrating such mental strength to the delight of Joanne in the

:39:22.:39:27.

stands. Studio-macro Paul Drinkhall in

:39:28.:39:47.

control. This is the third round of the men's singles in the table

:39:48.:39:51.

tennis. We will bring you back to this later on. Let's go back to

:39:52.:39:56.

Kelvingrove because we have been watching the gold medal match in the

:39:57.:40:01.

women's pairs of the lawn bowls and it was proving impossible to call

:40:02.:40:09.

it. How is it looking now? It is still very tight. England leading

:40:10.:40:16.

16-14 after 15 ends, but there is not much between these talented

:40:17.:40:23.

teams. Jamie-Lea Winch and Natalie Melmore trying to win the gold medal

:40:24.:40:27.

like they did in Delhi four years ago but up against them Colleen

:40:28.:40:38.

Piketh and Tracy-Lee Botha. Not much to choose between them. Let's join

:40:39.:40:42.

our commentators to see how this unfolds. Sharyn Renshaw and David

:40:43.:40:53.

Caulker. Two plays with input from the management. I think she must

:40:54.:40:57.

play a forehand now and try and get the ball through the gap. More

:40:58.:41:04.

chance of the ball going on to the jack on the backhand. But the

:41:05.:41:08.

backhand offers a more reliable shot. This is not easy.

:41:09.:41:39.

She got it absolutely perfect. She could not have got the edge of this

:41:40.:42:05.

better. Good bowl, good results. Get a lot of credit from me for even

:42:06.:42:09.

attempting it on the forehand. This will be pushing in with weight, I

:42:10.:42:17.

would expect. They have good back bowls. They are well protected from

:42:18.:42:25.

behind. Last role of the end. Got to be in

:42:26.:42:35.

the area but does not want to be too wide. What a result! I thought she

:42:36.:42:40.

was on the high side but pushed the front bowl in.

:42:41.:42:54.

Just clipping the front bowl. The jack was always going back. It did

:42:55.:43:05.

not bounce off it. She knew it. She knew as soon as she got the angle

:43:06.:43:15.

right that it was coming in. Two great bowls from the skips. Big

:43:16.:43:25.

turnaround on that one. Massive turnaround. Getting some really good

:43:26.:43:30.

shots towards the end of each end. It is all to do with bowls in their

:43:31.:43:36.

head again? They are creating the opportunities.

:43:37.:45:39.

Playing a better line this time. Chance for a connection, it pushed

:45:40.:46:10.

the ball through, opens up the jack. A very good bowl.

:46:11.:46:26.

Good leading. It has given her skip every opportunity to win this match.

:46:27.:47:19.

Looking good. Just pulling up a little short.

:47:20.:48:07.

South Africa need to get this one in.

:48:08.:48:21.

Taking it may be too far through. Certainly, the shot to play. We will

:48:22.:48:33.

have to wait and see who lies. It is indicating two to South Africa.

:48:34.:49:11.

Natalie is playing down on the back and, rather difficult. -- backhand.

:49:12.:49:26.

I'm not quite sure if she could see. This is going to be a very

:49:27.:49:28.

interesting last hand. The difficulty for clean is that the

:49:29.:49:45.

backhand is safer, but if she moves the jack, she could possibly give it

:49:46.:49:58.

away -- Colleen. The forehand is more reliable and more likely to

:49:59.:50:03.

sweep into the jack. The percentage is on the forehand shot.

:50:04.:50:12.

You would have to think they could be more reliable. You are going into

:50:13.:50:21.

the last end one down, which is great. Give yourself every chance.

:50:22.:50:27.

If you are going to play the forehand on the sweep, you have to

:50:28.:50:31.

be careful of your weight. You do not want to be anything above jack

:50:32.:50:41.

hi. You can afford to be below it. -- jack high.

:50:42.:50:48.

She is down on that side. A very safe line. No change.

:50:49.:51:00.

I don't think there is any change, anyway.

:51:01.:51:10.

They are going to measure it. Taking one out. It was indicated it

:51:11.:51:15.

was two to South Africa very quickly and early. It really hasn't changed.

:51:16.:51:22.

I can understand them wanting to be sure. Yes! So can I. You don't want

:51:23.:51:29.

that hanging over your head going into the last end.

:51:30.:51:39.

I don't think that was much of a measure. More wishful thinking. A

:51:40.:51:48.

psychological thing. Let us play absolutely safe.

:51:49.:51:52.

Two to South Africa. This is going absolutely safe.

:51:53.:51:54.

Two to South Africa. This is going to be a very interesting last end.

:51:55.:51:56.

Yes. A little team conference needed. To

:51:57.:52:12.

discuss the length. The length they feel they want to play. Maybe a bit

:52:13.:52:20.

of encouragement to each other. They haven't scored in this

:52:21.:52:23.

direction for some considerable time. You have to go back to that

:52:24.:52:28.

little run they got in the eighth, ninth, 10th end. After that it has

:52:29.:52:34.

been going in other direction. I can understand why they are having this

:52:35.:52:39.

chat. A little bit on the shorter side, the jack. So, England are in

:52:40.:52:48.

front 17-16. And this is the last end of the match.

:52:49.:52:55.

Of course, if South Africa can score a single, it will be a tide end, and

:52:56.:53:07.

a one and shoot out effectively. -- tied.

:53:08.:53:15.

That is a lovely opening bowl from Tracy-Lee.

:53:16.:53:47.

Jamie-Lea, behind the jack, as normal. Sophie

:53:48.:53:58.

her team to another gold medal. Definitely the women's

:53:59.:54:03.

her team to another gold medal. England squad is doing very

:54:04.:54:13.

Bobby Donnelly, from South Africa. Also a gold medallist here. Didn't

:54:14.:54:22.

go well in the singles. One of the few that Jamie-Lea has

:54:23.:54:41.

played short of the jack. Neither of the Leeds have played too

:54:42.:54:46.

many short. I think this has been a very good

:54:47.:54:49.

game, good leading, good skipping, no weaknesses.

:54:50.:54:59.

Colleen Piketh will be saying, well done, lead, you have done your job.

:55:00.:55:26.

It got the wrong bowl. There really only one shot

:55:27.:55:31.

It got the wrong bowl. There Colleen, to get behind the jack. It

:55:32.:55:36.

is not Colleen, to get behind the jack. It

:55:37.:55:41.

while! I know you were happier with the last end. You have played

:55:42.:55:54.

while! I know you were happier with position. One of the best in the

:55:55.:55:55.

world at the moment. They really

:55:56.:56:08.

this one. The only danger is that the back of it. She is white. She

:56:09.:56:22.

doesn't want to be short. -- wide. Natalie will have a chance.

:56:23.:56:42.

Just to let you know, the last end of the bronze play-off is level at

:56:43.:56:49.

14 - 14. So, two really good matches. Just dropping inside. I am

:56:50.:56:57.

not sure if I would go near that. The second shot is definitely

:56:58.:57:02.

beatable. You don't want to make it easy for Natalie Melmore. She has a

:57:03.:57:06.

good weight shot on her. She is more than capable of coming into it.

:57:07.:57:12.

The last thing you want to do is sit one level with the jack or slightly

:57:13.:57:18.

short, which could be used. Trying to encourage that one around.

:57:19.:57:30.

It is protected. This is a big bowl. Needs a second shot with this.

:57:31.:57:36.

She has gone through. Colleen, don't go near it. It is a big bowl for

:57:37.:57:44.

Natalie to draw that. Just go deep. Anything short would be bad news.

:57:45.:58:06.

That is a very wise decision. She did not need to go to the manager to

:58:07.:58:11.

discuss that one. Keep it deep. The last thing you want to do is drop

:58:12.:58:17.

one short. It would make it easier. -- easier for them.

:58:18.:58:26.

I would try to draw for second. She has had two attempts already.

:58:27.:58:34.

So may look for a different option. I think you are right. There is no

:58:35.:58:39.

guarantee of getting the front bowl on. If you get the wrong age of it,

:58:40.:58:45.

you are only going to promote it. I think she needs to draw the second

:58:46.:58:49.

one. For me, she has been one of the best players in this event with her

:58:50.:58:56.

last bowl, in the singles as well. Initial bit of destruction from the

:58:57.:59:05.

other end, she will regroup. -- distraction. A good idea to take her

:59:06.:59:12.

time. Movement from one area catching her eye. She is going for

:59:13.:59:19.

it. Playing weight. She is good at this shot, looking for a percentage

:59:20.:59:25.

on it. Oh! The bowl followed, but she saved the match. It is one to

:59:26.:59:37.

South Africa. That was a gutsy shot. She played the weight shot. Well...

:59:38.:59:46.

The marker has already indicated it is one to South Africa.

:59:47.:59:52.

It is close. Even having the camera at the top, I

:59:53.:00:01.

wouldn't like to discuss this too much, let them get on with it.

:00:02.:00:14.

What a gutsy shot. She is so good with that last bowl. I thought she

:00:15.:00:22.

was coming off the front edge. But, jack movement. You have two

:00:23.:00:31.

attempts to draw. Drop one well short, one behind, look for another

:00:32.:00:32.

option. There were three in it, taking one

:00:33.:00:43.

way wasn't good enough, she had to get movement on the jack. It was a

:00:44.:00:50.

speculative shot. It had to be hit perfectly.

:00:51.:01:14.

in by so much. I cannot blame them measuring, it is for gold medal.

:01:15.:01:29.

There it is. Absolutely perfectly onto that. Great contact. Solid

:01:30.:01:41.

bowl, no edges. She thought she had it. But she saved the game and that

:01:42.:01:49.

this stage that is what she wanted to do. That was her first target,

:01:50.:01:59.

save the game. 17-17. England, for the first time in the match have

:02:00.:02:05.

brought the mat up the rink. Have not seen this so far. Has been up a

:02:06.:02:14.

little bit before but not as much as this. So a definite change for the

:02:15.:02:19.

tight It shows the quality of Natalie

:02:20.:02:59.

being able to do something. She does it in the singles, so many times

:03:00.:03:03.

with the last bowl. Scratching out something. Northern Ireland in the

:03:04.:03:13.

bronze medal position of one bowl away from lifting the bronze medal.

:03:14.:03:28.

Good opener from Tracy-Lee Botha. There is cheering in the background.

:03:29.:03:45.

It is the girls from Northern Ireland who have won the bronze in

:03:46.:03:51.

the pairs. They are absolutely delighted, and so they should be.

:03:52.:04:09.

Too much weight, but giving it a chance to take the jack will stop.

:04:10.:05:01.

It is under. That is an massive bonus to get the edge of the jack.

:05:02.:05:16.

Reaching up and giving it a chance. Now she is in a good position.

:05:17.:05:30.

Here is the last role from Tracy-Lee Botha. Just edging the jack out and

:05:31.:05:42.

Here is the last role from Tracy-Lee putting it in a very good

:05:43.:05:52.

Holding. She has opened it and she has the back position. Won't be easy

:05:53.:06:05.

to beat that back position if she ditches the jack. I would not bet

:06:06.:06:11.

against Natalie Melmore to do that. This bowl has to be behind. It is

:06:12.:06:17.

going under. You have got three shots, you don't need one in there.

:06:18.:06:23.

Wasted. This jack is going to end up in the ditch. So strong with the

:06:24.:06:37.

running role and it is on the favourite hands, the forehand. Just

:06:38.:06:45.

holding off. South Africa have got a choice. They either block it, which

:06:46.:06:51.

I would not do because the backhand is available. Or go as deep as you

:06:52.:06:55.

possibly can. The worst thing they is available. Or go as deep as you

:06:56.:07:04.

could do is get one around it. Surely that is just going in amongst

:07:05.:07:08.

all the rest. They only need one, not five. Has to go again. She will

:07:09.:07:20.

adjust for this one. Half jack or better. Almost certainly will ditch

:07:21.:07:28.

it and hold onto it for the gold medal. Just missed it. South Africa

:07:29.:07:35.

will take the gold medal. What a fantastic match. Brilliant game. All

:07:36.:07:44.

the way down to the last end. Congratulations Tracy-Lee Botha and

:07:45.:07:49.

Colleen Piketh. They played really good bowls. So did England.

:07:50.:07:54.

Jamie-Lea Winch and Natalie Melmore both played extremely well. It came

:07:55.:08:00.

down to that site end. So little in it. A brilliant performance by South

:08:01.:08:07.

Africa to win this match. They just keep doing it at major events. They

:08:08.:08:16.

really do. Come to the Commonwealth Games and take gold medals.

:08:17.:08:37.

Commiserations but I think it should also be congratulations to the

:08:38.:08:43.

England team. Wonderfully played match. Scoreboard just coming up.

:08:44.:09:05.

South Africa have beaten England 20-17.

:09:06.:09:11.

STUDIO: South Africa take the gold medal in the women's pairs at

:09:12.:09:16.

Kelvingrove. An absolutely gripping match. These two teams were so

:09:17.:09:25.

finely matched all the way through. It was just in those last stages

:09:26.:09:29.

with an extra end South Africa managed to take the gold medal. I

:09:30.:09:35.

know as a fan of them, you have been following this the sometime, but

:09:36.:09:42.

some of us will be thinking that lawn bowls could be so dramatic? I

:09:43.:09:47.

hate to say I told you so, but I have told you how exciting the sport

:09:48.:09:53.

is. Disappointing for England in the end, it was a fabulous match to

:09:54.:10:00.

watch. The England team had their opportunities and led with one end

:10:01.:10:04.

to go. We have to give credit to sell Africa, a tremendous fightback

:10:05.:10:09.

to claw their way back into the match. They have one their fifth

:10:10.:10:16.

gold medal at these games in lawn bowls. And the combination of Tracey

:10:17.:10:19.

both and Colleen Piketh have produced some tremendous stuff.

:10:20.:10:27.

Natalie Melmore was also beaten in the final of the singles. She will

:10:28.:10:31.

be disappointed, but she has won a couple of silver medals. Jamie-Lea

:10:32.:10:36.

Winch was part of the fours team that lost to South Africa in the

:10:37.:10:40.

quarterfinals earlier in the week. She will also be a bit crestfallen.

:10:41.:10:47.

Hope leet we will be able to speak to them. Descartes being

:10:48.:10:53.

commiserated right now. But there was the bronze medal match going on

:10:54.:10:56.

as well between Northern Ireland and jersey. Everyone from jersey hoping

:10:57.:11:04.

for a first medal of The Games. Unfortunately they came up short

:11:05.:11:07.

because Northern Ireland have won the bronze medal. Another tight

:11:08.:11:12.

match, 14-14 going into the final end. Northern Ireland are merged on

:11:13.:11:19.

top so the quest for a first medal for jersey continues.

:11:20.:11:24.

Congratulations to Barbara Cameron and Mandy Cunningham of Northern

:11:25.:11:32.

Ireland. Another tight, dramatic match. We think the players are

:11:33.:11:38.

coming to is very shortly. We will be able to interview them, but back

:11:39.:11:44.

to Michelle. Final day of the lawn bowls competition at Kelvingrove.

:11:45.:11:50.

Let's talk to our Lee Williams who has been our social media guide to

:11:51.:11:56.

The Games. How was the reaction to last night at Hampden Park, the

:11:57.:11:58.

weather was dismal but stunning performances? Eilidh Child ripped

:11:59.:12:05.

everybody, online as well as TV. Judy Murray leading the tribute

:12:06.:12:12.

saying, she is a typically understated Scottish superstar.

:12:13.:12:20.

Jessica Ennis-Hill said, brilliant run, lots of pressure. Jessica

:12:21.:12:27.

Ennis-Hill dealt with the most pressure at London 2012 knew what

:12:28.:12:32.

Eilidh Child was facing. Dai Greene said they should have changed the

:12:33.:12:37.

timetable so Eilidh Child could have had an hour of singing the

:12:38.:12:42.

proclaimers. It was a fantastic atmosphere. She might be still

:12:43.:12:45.

competing so we might see more of her. How is the 71 club going?

:12:46.:12:52.

Incredibly well. We have managed to get hold of two athletes at the

:12:53.:13:02.

village. It is the challenge to interview at least one athlete from

:13:03.:13:08.

each of the 71 nations competing here. We have done the Seychelles,

:13:09.:13:16.

Bangladesh, New Zealand, British Virgin Islands, and Scotland, I

:13:17.:13:22.

think they are called. Scotland are the last? You would think you would

:13:23.:13:29.

be able to find somebody to talk to. Where are you going to go to find

:13:30.:13:33.

the more elusive ones? Bangladesh have a gymnast which we will be

:13:34.:13:38.

watching this afternoon. New Zealand, we have not figured which

:13:39.:13:43.

one we will speak to. The British Virgin Islands, we are hoping to

:13:44.:13:49.

tempt into the studio tonight. We will get an update later as usual.

:13:50.:14:02.

Tonight at The Games, every night on BBC One at 10:40pm with Clare

:14:03.:14:09.

Balding and Mark Chapman. Now, so far this morning we have had a very

:14:10.:14:16.

morning, table tennis, dramatic times at the lawn bowls. Now we will

:14:17.:14:21.

go to diving. It has some of the high-quality fields. We will see

:14:22.:14:25.

jack Law in action in the three-metre springboard final when

:14:26.:14:32.

he is partnered with Chris Mears. At first a reminder of what you need to

:14:33.:14:41.

watch out for. Individual and synchronised event

:14:42.:14:46.

take place on the three-metre springboard and the ten-metre

:14:47.:14:49.

platform. Individual athletes contest the one metre springboard

:14:50.:14:55.

competition. The synchronised springboard diving,

:14:56.:14:57.

competition. The synchronised adjacent boards are used. They

:14:58.:15:01.

measure 4.8 metres long and 50 centimetres wide.

:15:02.:15:03.

adjacent boards are used. They measure 4.8 metres From the diving

:15:04.:15:06.

tower, competitors will dive side-by-side from the same ten-metre

:15:07.:15:12.

platform. This surface is six metres long and three metres wide. There

:15:13.:15:17.

are six different types, forward, backwards, reverse, inward, twisting

:15:18.:15:44.

and arm stand. So now you now how it work,

:15:45.:15:47.

impressive to watch, sometimes terrifying. Helen Skelton is over at

:15:48.:15:52.

the Royal Commonwealth Pool in Edinburgh where the diving action is

:15:53.:15:55.

happening. Terrifying it certainly is. It is a

:15:56.:16:01.

goosebump inducing place to be, today we have three finals on day

:16:02.:16:05.

three of the diving. Plenty of opportunities for Team England to

:16:06.:16:08.

add to their medal stash, so far we have two gold, two silver and one

:16:09.:16:14.

bronze, we have had a preliminary round already, we are getting ready

:16:15.:16:20.

to see a synchro three metre final that involves Jack Laugher and Chris

:16:21.:16:23.

Mears, he said to me after last night "I am going to rip it up

:16:24.:16:27.

today." We will see if he can do that. Tonight we have the women's

:16:28.:16:32.

Springboard final. All three English girls and Scottish girl are through

:16:33.:16:35.

to the final. At 19 minutes past seven, we have the men's

:16:36.:16:42.

synchronised ten metre platform final which will include Tom Daley.

:16:43.:16:47.

Olympic bronze medal list at London 2012. Tonight he will be diving with

:16:48.:16:52.

James Denny. It is the first time we will have seen them in competition.

:16:53.:16:56.

But Tom Daley, he is a global star and what a time he has had similar

:16:57.:17:00.

since the Olympics in London, 2012. Here is a reminder.

:17:01.:17:09.

Oh, yes, it is a good one, we can't do any more than that. The crowd are

:17:10.:17:16.

on their feet. Tom Daley has done absolutely everything he can. Tom

:17:17.:17:21.

Daley, you would not have done any more. It is out of your hands now.

:17:22.:17:36.

2013 was a rough year for me, riddles with injury, 2000 is has

:17:37.:17:40.

come with a lot of changes, I have moved to London, I have a new coach,

:17:41.:17:46.

I am doing lots of exercises, I have changed my techniques, the

:17:47.:17:48.

competitions are going well. I have a personal best in Mexico, and came

:17:49.:17:53.

away with a silver medal. Like, gradually, making the step between

:17:54.:17:56.

being good, to try and get into the excellent category.

:17:57.:18:05.

You mentioned that personal best, what has been the difference to get

:18:06.:18:10.

that extra special score? To break a personal best is something you

:18:11.:18:16.

strive for. The littlest things make a massive difference, if I don't

:18:17.:18:19.

point any toe, if I go slightly over from vertical. The smallest mistake

:18:20.:18:29.

can cost you a personal best. -- my toe. There you go, Tom Daley.

:18:30.:18:34.

He goes into the water, hardly any splash, give him some tens. Well,

:18:35.:18:39.

get in! What was special about the Commonwealth gold? The Commonwealth

:18:40.:18:42.

Games is something that has been a massive event on the diving

:18:43.:18:46.

calendar, to be able to compete in his first one in Delhi and come away

:18:47.:18:50.

with two gold medal, I was over the moon, I couldn't wait for another

:18:51.:18:53.

four year tos get the chance to do another one.

:18:54.:18:56.

-- to get the chance to do another one.

:18:57.:19:02.

It is not so good. He lost it on the take off. Running out of room there.

:19:03.:19:13.

Maybe the flashes put him off. That was about the demon dive, the

:19:14.:19:17.

twister. Everyone has a dive they are scared of. For me it is the back

:19:18.:19:20.

twister. But I have done a lot of work on it. I have been doing

:19:21.:19:25.

everything I can, to get me to a stage where I with do it as well as

:19:26.:19:29.

I can. I am optimistic about the Commonwealth Games I will be able to

:19:30.:19:33.

nail that divement Am I right in saying you have seen a therapist and

:19:34.:19:36.

psychologist There is so many things to talk about, whether it is diving,

:19:37.:19:40.

outside of diving. It a crucial part of being able to be at the top of

:19:41.:19:44.

your game, you have to be able to mentally be in the position, to

:19:45.:19:48.

think that you can win, and also be in the position where you don't have

:19:49.:19:50.

any worries about the sport you do. To get another Commonwealth gold

:19:51.:20:05.

medal would mean so much. It only happens once every four year, it is

:20:06.:20:08.

not like an event you can do it one year and think OK, I can try next

:20:09.:20:13.

year to see if I can win. You do all those years of training, four years

:20:14.:20:17.

and you get six dives to make it count. If you mess up one dive, you

:20:18.:20:22.

are out. There is still a lot of work to be done, by the time the

:20:23.:20:25.

Commonwealth Games actually happens, I am on the end of the board,

:20:26.:20:33.

hopefullily be in with a chance. -- hopefully I will be in with a

:20:34.:20:39.

chance. So Tom Daley defends his title tonight, with new partner

:20:40.:20:44.

James Denny. The reason I am saying in that dramatic way, they have

:20:45.:20:49.

never dived together before, they don't, they don't train together

:20:50.:20:52.

very much. Why have they been put together? Tom has been focussing on

:20:53.:20:57.

his individual, that is where his computer focus has been, the synchro

:20:58.:21:02.

they have been trying to match him with a suitable partner. James Denny

:21:03.:21:05.

and Tom were in together in the dry land and they were matched

:21:06.:21:08.

effectively together, so the somersaults they do. They were OK,

:21:09.:21:11.

James has the degree of difficulty, which is the same as Tom, so there

:21:12.:21:15.

is the potential there. They did work on the lower level boards and

:21:16.:21:18.

it was noted these two are potential, so we need to trial them

:21:19.:21:24.

at some stage. Tom was on the word series stage, James Denny wasn't, he

:21:25.:21:28.

was concentrating on Springboard. They didn't have the chance to get

:21:29.:21:31.

together now. It was deemed by the powers that be and the boy, we want

:21:32.:21:35.

to give this a go. Let us see how it goes. They have been put themselves

:21:36.:21:39.

together on the ten metre and they look good. I was talking to Tom's

:21:40.:21:45.

new coach, who said for them it is all about the Olympics, she has come

:21:46.:21:49.

over, she has left Houston after 24 years to build up to the Olympics,

:21:50.:21:52.

am I right in saying this partnership is a practise for that

:21:53.:21:55.

as well? Yes, you have to explore the option, Tom, as you know, hasn't

:21:56.:21:59.

been matched with the synchro partner, we have been testing his

:22:00.:22:03.

British diving to try and find someone suitable 6789 James Denny is

:22:04.:22:07.

suitable. But obviously focussing on the individual as well, in Tom's

:22:08.:22:10.

case. But he is in Leeds, James Denny, Tom

:22:11.:22:16.

is in London. James Denny good mates with Jack Laugher and Chris mere,

:22:17.:22:20.

they have the best bromance ever, don't they. Chris Mears and Jack

:22:21.:22:23.

Laugher, they are always hanging out. They might be buying a house

:22:24.:22:28.

together! Jack Laugher and Chris Mears, diving today, in this final,

:22:29.:22:34.

three metre, let us talk about Jack Laugher, he blew the field away.

:22:35.:22:37.

Didn't go to plan for him last night. A real shame. He was the man

:22:38.:22:42.

to beat and he did five good dives but made a mistakes on one, it is

:22:43.:22:46.

interesting, his performance was exceptional but he made one mistake,

:22:47.:22:50.

that dive was pretty good. The reverse one-and-a-half,

:22:51.:22:51.

two-and-a-half twists, he is still in it on that one, it went wrong on

:22:52.:22:57.

the next one, his fifth round dive. The four Ward four-and-a-half, which

:22:58.:23:02.

is 3.8 difficulty. As he comes into the end, he doesn't get the good

:23:03.:23:06.

hurdle step and the dive gets away from him. -- forward. That is a

:23:07.:23:12.

disastrous mistake, it cost him the gold medal. He will be looking for a

:23:13.:23:16.

gold today with Chris Mears. For people who are new to diving, the

:23:17.:23:20.

hurdle step is the last step at the end You need to be in perfect

:23:21.:23:23.

balance with your feet on the end of the board. It is o common for divers

:23:24.:23:28.

to be hanging ten, all ten toes over the end of board which makes it more

:23:29.:23:33.

difficult. He said I am looking forward to be being back out with

:23:34.:23:37.

Chris, tomorrow I am going to rip it up. They have competition from the

:23:38.:23:41.

English boys, haven't they, how is this going to shape up? The

:23:42.:23:45.

Australian pair of Mitcham and Nel will be strong. It will be a tough

:23:46.:23:49.

contest. All six Dais can't make any error, let us wait and see. This is

:23:50.:23:54.

Chris earlier in the week in his individual competition. Just missed

:23:55.:23:59.

out on a medal. He will be keen to get on the podium Absolutely, they

:24:00.:24:02.

said

:24:03.:01:44.

Mishal Husain and Jason Mohammad present live coverage of day nine of the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.

There's table tennis action from inside the Scotstoun Sports Campus, with semi-finals in the women's singles and men's doubles. Historically, Singapore has been way ahead in this sport, while India, Australia, and England have been consistent performers.

Plus, the semi-finals in the women's hockey.
