Can the British gymnasts live up to the Hydro Hype?

:00:48.:00:55.

England's Kristian Thomas goes in the men's vault

:00:56.:00:59.

He led the way in qualifying and is targeting his first

:01:00.:01:01.

Then, after Kristian Thomas exits the gymnastics.

:01:02.:01:10.

He's followed by teammates Claudia Fragapane and Becky Downie,

:01:11.:01:12.

and Wales's Lizzie Beddoe and Georgina Hockenhull,

:01:13.:01:13.

Over on BBC Three, it's Scotland v England, in the gold

:01:14.:01:18.

Gold has gone to South Africa, with Norland are -- Northern Ireland

:01:19.:02:23.

taking the bronze medal. And Liam Pitchford and Paul

:02:24.:02:34.

Drinkhall fell to Singapore. Drink all -- Pringle had a chance to make

:02:35.:02:36.

amends later. the women's single that is where we

:02:37.:03:05.

are going first Kirsty Gilmour looking to book a place in Michelle

:03:06.:03:15.

this will be a wonderful results for it is a good lift. She was late on

:03:16.:04:42.

that this is the best I have seen Kirsty Gilmour play in this

:04:43.:04:43.

tournament. It is the beautifully. Sinking well. Her shots

:04:44.:07:21.

are working. I know you have said Gilmore could

:07:22.:08:45.

not with the second game, I think if she gets a good

:08:46.:08:47.

I know you have said Gilmore could not with the second game, I start to

:08:48.:08:51.

the Demons of the last Mike play on the

:08:52.:09:10.

Yes. That is her chance at the moment. Gilmore is playing far

:09:11.:09:17.

better, and she is just, as I say, Michelle Chan will have to wait for

:09:18.:09:20.

that window of opportunity, and hope she can stay in the game long tough

:09:21.:09:25.

-- enough for Gilmore to get nervous. That has landed in. To do

:09:26.:09:31.

that, play the forehand side rather than the backhand side, because

:09:32.:09:36.

Gilmore has more options from that backhand side than her forehand

:09:37.:09:39.

side. Providing she plays the normal round the head shot. Yes. Yes.

:09:40.:10:23.

A little nod from Michelle Chan to her coaches, but... She missed it

:10:24.:10:28.

but she was happy with the rally. quite well. If she

:10:29.:12:04.

Keep going. So he, is haven't is convinced

:12:05.:12:11.

having long rallies, just like I, that an opportunity will come. This

:12:12.:12:13.

is one of them that was going wide. that an opportunity will come. This

:12:14.:12:18.

That was going well wide. Deflected by the cord and brought it back in.

:12:19.:12:22.

That is one of the small things you now and again need.

:12:23.:12:31.

Then it stopped. Well, she does seem to still be

:12:32.:12:52.

pumping the Well, she does seem to still be

:12:53.:13:00.

Gilmore deep backhand side, and you're shaking your head, more on

:13:01.:13:06.

the. Obviously, every player is having good and bad shots in this.

:13:07.:13:12.

That shot, actually landing in one of my favourite positions, and I

:13:13.:13:15.

would have pumped that clear down the line,

:13:16.:13:16.

would have pumped that clear down the really flat from the backhand

:13:17.:13:19.

side and down the line to that forehand side, but you know,

:13:20.:13:23.

everyone is having their own favourite shots and that was just

:13:24.:13:29.

one of mine. Backhand serve again. This time low.

:13:30.:13:30.

Good reply. Yes. Five. Seven. It sounds strange what

:13:31.:13:44.

I am going to say now, but I think even though that Gilmore lost this

:13:45.:13:46.

rally, it was still a good change. That was a good change from Chan.

:13:47.:14:04.

Oh my goodness. Trying to play that with a round the head action, surely

:14:05.:14:07.

he should have played a backhand. Yes.

:14:08.:14:11.

-- she should have played a backhand. He has to be ready now.

:14:12.:14:18.

Oh, my goodness! From that situation, two shots are

:14:19.:14:21.

coming, either the drive down the line, which we saw or the drop shot.

:14:22.:14:24.

That is the two shots that will come.

:14:25.:14:29.

It is looking good from Kirstie, you can follow the conclusion of this

:14:30.:14:36.

match on the website. The reason we are leaving the

:14:37.:14:40.

Emirates arena is because we heading to the Hydro, a packed crowd across

:14:41.:14:44.

the river yesterday, the world class athlete showing just why they are

:14:45.:14:48.

the best on the planet and what a day it was.

:14:49.:14:55.

There you go. That is so impressive. Another gold for Max Whitlock.

:14:56.:15:09.

And it is England Claudia Fragapane, she could get gold.

:15:10.:15:19.

Daniel Keatings is in with a chance for a medal.

:15:20.:15:27.

There is your golden boy! Scotland's Daniel Keatings!

:15:28.:15:33.

Max Whitlock with the silver, and Louis Smith with a bronze.

:15:34.:15:39.

Becky Downie. This is the impressive bit. Speeding up into the full

:15:40.:15:43.

twist. Rebecca Downie is Commonwealth

:15:44.:15:47.

champion! There you go, Daniel Purvis.

:15:48.:15:53.

Very nice. He takes the bronze medal.

:15:54.:16:01.

There is a row -- there is a roar as the finalists have entered. In this

:16:02.:16:07.

final, there is one Englishman and two Scotsman. From England, it is

:16:08.:16:15.

Kristian Thomas. There he is. He took in France paddle in the World

:16:16.:16:20.

Championships in 2003. Scott Morgan, the Canadian, being introduced will

:16:21.:16:26.

stop another gymnast from Scotland, Adam Cox, listen to the roar from

:16:27.:16:30.

the home crowd! Ashish Kumar is the next gymnast

:16:31.:16:38.

being induced. It is the young lad from Scotland

:16:39.:16:47.

next, Frank Baines. Kent Peterson from Australia.

:16:48.:16:54.

And Jaffray rounds off the finalists.

:16:55.:16:58.

Sitting beside me is Beth Tweddle. It is a big day for both of those

:16:59.:17:03.

lads, Kristian and Frank. They have been quiet on the

:17:04.:17:09.

individual medal fronts. They will want to go out and prove

:17:10.:17:16.

themselves as individuals. Frank has three finals, Kristian has

:17:17.:17:23.

two. Before we get down there, the gymnasts will be doing two vaults.

:17:24.:17:26.

gymnasts will be doing They both need to have different

:17:27.:17:33.

entries and the scores will be averaged. The difficulty especially

:17:34.:17:37.

with Kristian Thomas is unbelievable. He performs under

:17:38.:17:51.

pressure. All eyes are on the gymnasts in the

:17:52.:17:56.

arena, nothing else is going on apart from these individual finals.

:17:57.:18:00.

It really is nerve wracking. The first gymnast is Wah Toon Hoe.

:18:01.:18:13.

This is the first of his two vaults. Let us join your commentators.

:18:14.:18:19.

He qualified in fourth place. A double twist. 5.2 difficulty. Very

:18:20.:18:33.

nice opener. That will give him a good platform for his second

:18:34.:18:37.

attempt. A good first vaults, not the most

:18:38.:18:46.

difficult, scored out of 5.2. A bit of a deduction on legs apart. He

:18:47.:18:51.

snaps them together to make the two twists. A big step on landing. The

:18:52.:19:01.

execution scores, and of ten. I think the judges will be able to

:19:02.:19:08.

take a little bit off there. One vaults in the locker. Mentioning

:19:09.:19:14.

earlier, it is important they have a decent second vaults, a reliable

:19:15.:19:20.

second vaults, that is always the challenge.

:19:21.:19:23.

Actually, he landed quite well, just putting his arms out to stabilise.

:19:24.:19:30.

He stepped back and brought the foot back in, 0.1. Good in terms of

:19:31.:19:38.

direction. You will see a difficulty score. We

:19:39.:19:43.

already know that will be 5.2. Then an execution score which will

:19:44.:19:47.

be the one added, to make the difference.

:19:48.:20:04.

His second vaults, same difficulty, 5.2.

:20:05.:20:14.

I'd take a guess he will be going forward, obviously. It is a 5.2.

:20:15.:20:39.

That is his Commonwealth Games over. He was seventh on the floor,

:20:40.:20:45.

he has put in a very good bid for medal here.

:20:46.:20:50.

A lovely, clean gymnast. His first was a bit ragged.

:20:51.:20:56.

That one wasn't. It was but the direction was good. The height was

:20:57.:21:00.

good. This was even better. One wasn't. It was but the direction was

:21:01.:21:03.

good. The height was good. This was even better the landing, a tiny

:21:04.:21:07.

deviation from that red line down the middle. His legs a bit apart on

:21:08.:21:13.

the flight. But it is harder for the judges to spot when you are doing a

:21:14.:21:25.

forward vaults. -- vault. He came into the final as the fourth

:21:26.:21:31.

highest qualifier. You never know what is going to happen with the

:21:32.:21:33.

landings. That is right. Two good, steady

:21:34.:21:43.

vaults even with not the highest difficulty, could be better than

:21:44.:21:47.

chancing your arm. Very nice in the air.

:21:48.:21:52.

chancing your arm. average score that counts. It is the

:21:53.:22:02.

one at the top. Very good execution. Over 9.0. Keep your eye on that

:22:03.:22:07.

execution score. So, for England, Kristian Thomas. So

:22:08.:22:13.

off in Great Britain have relied on his expertise. But, today, it is all

:22:14.:22:19.

about him as an individual gymnast. A score of 6.0 on the difficulty

:22:20.:22:31.

school board -- score. Such an impressive vaulter. A double

:22:32.:22:39.

pike. Boat! He has overcooked it. You cannot hold onto that pike for

:22:40.:22:43.

too long because you will get an excess of rotation which is what

:22:44.:22:46.

happened. Huge disappointment, you can see it

:22:47.:22:51.

written all over his face. He has another vaults but it is the average

:22:52.:22:58.

of both which count. I was surprised, he blocked it and

:22:59.:23:08.

went up really well. He held on a little too long to the

:23:09.:23:12.

pipe. A fantastically difficult Vokes. His hips were behind his

:23:13.:23:17.

feet. He did not have a chance -- vault.

:23:18.:23:25.

He was dead centre as well. He held onto the pike for a little too long.

:23:26.:23:31.

You could argue Riu -- you could argue he had so much height, that is

:23:32.:23:36.

the reason why he over rotated. Yes. He probably felt, I don't

:23:37.:23:42.

believe I can beat this high, perfect technique. But, by the time

:23:43.:23:47.

he came round about now, he needs to be letting go of the legs... Not

:23:48.:23:52.

now, the first somersault, but about now. He waited until the feat almost

:23:53.:24:00.

landed before he let go. He obviously did not feel he was as

:24:01.:24:08.

high as he was. Kristian Thomas, his score. So,

:24:09.:24:16.

still a huge score. The Scottish team watching.

:24:17.:24:26.

This one is slightly easier, 5.6, but still incredibly difficult.

:24:27.:24:30.

This one is slightly easier, 5.6, will want to show everybody what he

:24:31.:24:35.

can do here. He has doubled backwards,

:24:36.:24:38.

doubles forward. That is more like doubles forward. That is more like

:24:39.:24:44.

it, just the pace. It is not easy to time the double front.

:24:45.:24:45.

He did that really well. disappointed after the first.

:24:46.:24:51.

Sometimes that might affect disappointed after the first.

:24:52.:24:54.

second but he didn't let it. He could still get a medal here.

:24:55.:24:59.

Yes, immense difficulty. That is one of the advantages. He could still be

:25:00.:25:07.

in with a chance. He gets the hand in really quickly,

:25:08.:25:12.

in with a chance. punches up, spins around twice,

:25:13.:25:16.

makes the landing. He will have wanted to play a little bit safe. It

:25:17.:25:20.

is easier to step forwards than back. His effectiveness of the top

:25:21.:25:25.

of the platform is wonderful. It is interesting the order you put

:25:26.:25:31.

those in, why would he go for the double pike backwards first?

:25:32.:25:38.

Because that is the one he competes with in competition. The double pike

:25:39.:25:45.

back. And this is his second. He would have done the one he is most

:25:46.:25:49.

confident with, first. Enormous height. To kill that

:25:50.:26:01.

rotation. You were quite right, a medal is

:26:02.:26:05.

definitely still on the cards because that second will stand him

:26:06.:26:09.

in very good stead indeed. And the first, other than the fall,

:26:10.:26:14.

there wasn't much to take off. It was still a good, high score.

:26:15.:26:22.

First gymnast ago watching the board eagerly.

:26:23.:26:26.

Kristian Thomas goes into the lead. A huge execution school, that second

:26:27.:26:33.

attempt. -- score.

:26:34.:26:41.

Scott Morgan here. Gold on rings, silver on floor.

:26:42.:26:46.

What has he got to offer? Power. Bucket loads.

:26:47.:26:54.

Look at that, he really does attack it. Very nice double twist and a

:26:55.:27:01.

straight front. Not as high, though?

:27:02.:27:07.

But massively long. Almost three quarters of the landing platform.

:27:08.:27:14.

Amazing length. But there will be some deductions for height. And he

:27:15.:27:19.

was slightly off line as well. The reason it was so long is he rolled

:27:20.:27:27.

his shoulders before he blocked off the top. But that is a really

:27:28.:27:34.

difficult vault. And he is a very powerful gymnast. A

:27:35.:27:39.

perfect illustration, the shoulders in front of the hands, the

:27:40.:27:42.

conversion upwards will be delayed. It would make this more easy to

:27:43.:27:52.

land, without over rotating. There should be deductions for lack

:27:53.:27:57.

of height because he almost levered it over.

:27:58.:28:06.

Huge power, though. Massive. ", he put up a difficulty of 5.6 for

:28:07.:28:15.

both attempts -- in the qualification, he put up a

:28:16.:28:17.

difficulty score. Likely to put in an extra half

:28:18.:28:35.

twist. 5.6 difficulty. Yes! That is a very strong bid.

:28:36.:28:55.

Consistent, and he knows it. Surely that is a third medal? For sure, he

:28:56.:29:03.

is absolutely delighted. He is very well orientated in that vault.

:29:04.:29:11.

Twisting it is not easy to land. He turns on, snapped the body and wraps

:29:12.:29:17.

in the 2.5 twists. Really strong work. A step to the side will be

:29:18.:29:23.

in the 2.5 twists. Really strong 0.1 deduction. And a slight lack of

:29:24.:29:24.

height. having. highest qualifier. Saw how

:29:25.:29:48.

wide his arms were onto the platform. He is a very strong

:29:49.:29:54.

gymnast. Uses his strength. You can see him look at the floor so he

:29:55.:29:59.

knows where he is so he can adjust his landing. No doubt, he takes the

:30:00.:30:07.

lead. He taken lead, 14 point 733 is the score to beat. Christian Thomas

:30:08.:30:30.

drops into second place. Adam Cox from Scotland introduced. This is

:30:31.:30:34.

his swansong. This will be the last time we see him. He will give it

:30:35.:30:51.

everything. Easier in the difficult to look good in the execution.

:30:52.:31:16.

Phillips on. But the twist in. It was one twist. Good extension

:31:17.:31:28.

through the shoulders. That will be a deduction, ending Brenes off. He

:31:29.:31:37.

uses a tapper and kick out technique. It will be interesting to

:31:38.:31:43.

see what he does with the order of vaults. He may have gone to the

:31:44.:31:47.

easier one first. It might be a technical error that they put the

:31:48.:32:00.

wrong vaults up first. I don't know how much of it he can see! Adam Cox

:32:01.:32:20.

with his second vault. Nothing wrong with that board system. Adam playing

:32:21.:32:28.

South and enjoying the moment. That is it for Adam Cox 's. He will now

:32:29.:32:36.

retire. He soaks up the feeling and what appealing to leave gymnastics

:32:37.:32:42.

with, Chris? What are failing to do in your own home city, make the

:32:43.:32:49.

finals and float into a perfect landing, what a way to finish. It

:32:50.:32:57.

was a dream of a vaults. It was, not very difficult because he did not

:32:58.:33:02.

add any twists. It is a great feeling to float through the air,

:33:03.:33:07.

knowing you will not be scrabbling for a landing. I think when gymnasts

:33:08.:33:16.

retire, one of the things they miss the most will be flying through the

:33:17.:33:20.

air. I remember it well, flying through the air. Let's rechristen

:33:21.:33:27.

this, flying Friday for all of the X gymnasts who remember that feeling.

:33:28.:33:35.

Adam Cox 's: Congratulations on a wonderful career. Happy retirement.

:33:36.:33:46.

We all know what this means. Scott Morgan, the current leader watches

:33:47.:34:09.

on. Stand by your bed is everyone. Double pipe. He has got to keep the

:34:10.:34:25.

pike otherwise it drop to 5.6. I was a little bit nervous watching this.

:34:26.:34:28.

The all-around competition, it wasn't great. This was very nice. It

:34:29.:34:37.

will be interesting to see what the judges said. It was a pike verb but

:34:38.:34:53.

the second was a somersault. Here is the view. Legs straight. I don't

:34:54.:35:00.

think they are straight enough. It should be a five .6 will stop but

:35:01.:35:13.

full marks for determination. Fabulous flight. I think the same

:35:14.:35:16.

happened with Fabulous flight. I think the same

:35:17.:35:32.

gave him 5.6. Slightly lower than Christian Thomas's first vault.

:35:33.:35:58.

He was way too early kicking that one out. Could there be a zero? You

:35:59.:36:10.

have to get your feet down to get a score. Let's look at the replay.

:36:11.:36:37.

Surely that would have taken the wind out of his sails? Definitely.

:36:38.:36:53.

It will have jolted him. Good block. He brought his knees back in the

:36:54.:37:03.

wrong direction. He probably knew he had done that. He plummeted. Baled

:37:04.:37:20.

out early, no choice. What a shame. He is having exactly the same

:37:21.:37:26.

conversation, he did not get his heels over. No time to put that

:37:27.:37:35.

right now, his Commonwealth Games 2014 is over. There is your leader

:37:36.:37:43.

at the moment, Scott Morgan. Of Kristian Thomas from England. Frank

:37:44.:37:57.

Baines for Scotland. He is in all three finals today so a very busy

:37:58.:38:03.

day ahead for him. But Frank Baines is certainly in he knows he could

:38:04.:38:17.

get a medal. This is a 5.6 difficulty. An extra half twist can

:38:18.:38:36.

do the damage. I think the problem is he tries to be too perfect. It

:38:37.:38:41.

was so high, waited for the pure moment to wrap the

:38:42.:38:45.

was so high, waited for the pure moment to twist in, it was too late.

:38:46.:38:52.

He goes on, up high. Perfect technique. Sometimes you have to

:38:53.:39:00.

compromise a bit. His feet were way down on the deck. That twist was

:39:01.:39:12.

started very late. I am sure everyone will appreciate his

:39:13.:39:14.

absolute style as we see the slow motion. Just unfortunately for him,

:39:15.:39:20.

the floor was not low enough! Technically beautiful. Lovely line.

:39:21.:39:31.

Look at that. You could almost see it in his face. When he saw the

:39:32.:39:39.

floor he probably knew it was a little bit too high without

:39:40.:39:49.

rotation. Still plenty of medal chances for him today. No doubt,

:39:50.:39:59.

Chris, he will be thinking compromise in his mind here? Go for

:40:00.:40:15.

landing on the feet! Well done! He got the roach. He really got that.

:40:16.:40:21.

Perfect timing with his heels over his head. He got his feet down

:40:22.:40:30.

first. That will be significant, if he can make a bigger vault like

:40:31.:40:34.

that, it will lift his chances of pressing into the senior British

:40:35.:40:42.

men's team. This is a big day for Frank gains. He times that very

:40:43.:40:50.

nicely. He is such a good gymnast. He is just not quite a seasoned

:40:51.:40:56.

competitor. He hasn't found the way to make it work. 19 years old, it is

:40:57.:41:07.

worth noting, in a gymnast's career, you have those growing spurts,

:41:08.:41:17.

having a smaller body is easier to rotate. Suddenly the bigger gymnast

:41:18.:41:24.

wake up one day and they are an inch taller. It did not happen to me! It

:41:25.:41:29.

is an interesting point, Chris? He has grown while he was injured. He

:41:30.:41:35.

is stronger. He has got a man's body now. When he was competing as a

:41:36.:41:43.

junior, he was very slight. Talk about rockets off the top. Frank

:41:44.:41:52.

James, 14.0 16 puts him into fourth. He will be back on the high bars.

:41:53.:41:59.

Scott Morgan from Canada leads this field. Kristian Thomas in second

:42:00.:42:03.

place for England. Wah Toon Hoe hanging on in at the brands medal at

:42:04.:42:12.

the moment. -- bronze medal. He got a silver at the championships this

:42:13.:42:30.

year. Seventh highest qualifier. It was deep but he got it right. He is

:42:31.:42:39.

so relieved. He did get it down but he also sat on the floor at the end

:42:40.:42:43.

of it. If you sit down, what deduction are you talking? A

:42:44.:42:52.

hallmark, I would think. You'll get another view in a second. He did

:42:53.:43:09.

touch. Just scraped it. Nothing like the height Frank Baines achieved.

:43:10.:43:14.

What he really speeds. Look how closely he gets his head into his

:43:15.:43:21.

knees. That increases the rotation. We will probably see here... Feet

:43:22.:43:36.

down. Difficult to tell. Yes, one marker off. But that is still a

:43:37.:43:41.

score. They didn't take a mark of. Wah Toon Hoe in bronze medal

:43:42.:44:12.

position will be watching this very closely. Pieterse with his second

:44:13.:44:27.

vaults. 1.5 twists will stop a little bit off-line but that was not

:44:28.:44:35.

in doubt. Much less dynamic as well. First was saved, and he got a

:44:36.:44:42.

good score for it. -- safe. Half well. First was saved, and he got a

:44:43.:44:53.

good score for it. -- safe. turns on this time. Straight body, 1.5

:44:54.:45:00.

twists. Lack of control on the landing.

:45:01.:45:08.

this time. Straight body, 1.5 twists. Lack of Wraps in a 1.5.

:45:09.:45:10.

Manages to control it. Pleased with his work. His average will be quite

:45:11.:45:30.

impressive. 14.099 for Kent Pieterse as he gives an invitation for the

:45:31.:45:35.

next games. That guarantees Kristian Thomas a medal. At Lois a bronze

:45:36.:45:44.

with one gymnast left to go. -- at least a bronze. -- Aizat Bin

:45:45.:45:55.

Muhammad Jufrie will be the last to go.

:45:56.:46:08.

The front somersault straight. And they have done well, the gymnasts

:46:09.:46:12.

from Singapore. . Very well indeed. they have done well, the gymnasts

:46:13.:46:17.

Both the men and the women, very much improved. This was a bit untidy

:46:18.:46:22.

I think. Legs apart at the start. Snap

:46:23.:46:28.

I think. deep, in the pike, when he landed.

:46:29.:46:32.

I think. Legs were apart on that turn on.

:46:33.:46:36.

They were together in the twist off, so the double twist. Yes,

:46:37.:46:40.

interesting you so the double twist. Yes,

:46:41.:46:43.

twist because of the one hand if front of the other approach, but to

:46:44.:46:45.

my mind I have always front of the other approach, but to

:46:46.:46:47.

that is is a handspring with one hand in front of the other.

:46:48.:46:53.

Technically it was a double twist. Yes, I agree, Mitch, for my mind,

:46:54.:46:58.

that is like a handspring, but, in the code, in the jumping manual, if

:46:59.:47:01.

you make one hand in front of the other it is considered to be a turn

:47:02.:47:06.

on, and then a double twist off. Absolutely.

:47:07.:47:15.

14 scored then, for Aizat Bin Muhammad Jufrie's first vault. He

:47:16.:47:25.

need an outreach of over 14.195 to get up into the medals.

:47:26.:47:30.

So everything, then on this last vault, for Jufrie.

:47:31.:47:36.

A 5.2 difficulty. He will be concentrating on

:47:37.:47:39.

execution here. He has got to absolutely nail it.

:47:40.:47:48.

Well, there you you go. That was a handspring, one-and-a-half twist.

:47:49.:47:54.

Same vault with one hand, I am not happy, I never have been. I am

:47:55.:47:59.

picking up on that, both vaults have to have a different entry, you are

:48:00.:48:03.

saying one hand is a bit further in front of the other. Yes. As oppose

:48:04.:48:09.

to making a turn on. It is a bit of a loophole in the judging manual,

:48:10.:48:15.

this time you see he goes on both hands parallel, one-and-a-half

:48:16.:48:18.

twists off. And it really was very similar to the first vault, but it

:48:19.:48:24.

is allowed, and he performed it really quite, I think he performed

:48:25.:48:27.

this vault better than the other one. He blocked well; buzz his chest

:48:28.:48:32.

was right down on that landing. That is where the marks will be lost.

:48:33.:48:49.

Little delay coming off. The rotation stopped. Shoulders down and

:48:50.:48:52.

he piked his feet down, and that is, that is the big deduction, it can be

:48:53.:48:57.

as much as half a mark for landing like that is You were saying

:48:58.:49:02.

howening shurks how wonderful the Singapore gymnasts have been, that

:49:03.:49:08.

puts him into sixth. His compatriot from Singapore, he will take the

:49:09.:49:12.

bronze medal. But there is your Commonwealth

:49:13.:49:17.

champion on vault, Scott Morgan from Canada, to match his gold on rings

:49:18.:49:24.

and a silver he got on floor, but what a moment for Wah Toon Hoe. He

:49:25.:49:30.

takes the bronze medal. And England's Kristian Thomas, he takes

:49:31.:49:35.

the silver here. In the men's vault final.

:49:36.:49:42.

Celebration indeed, another step forward. Huge moment for Singapore.

:49:43.:49:52.

I am sure that it is not the colour that Kristian Thomas was off but he

:49:53.:49:57.

will be happy with a medal. And individual medal. It shows his

:49:58.:50:00.

quality as a vaulter when you can make a mistake like that and still

:50:01.:50:06.

take the silver medal. Well, Scott Morgan, you absolutely

:50:07.:50:13.

see he is delighted. He is having a storming Commonwealth competition.

:50:14.:50:18.

But for Wah Toon Hoe, they will always remember Glasgow 2014.

:50:19.:50:33.

So a 28th gold medal for Canada, wonderful atmosphere inside the

:50:34.:50:38.

Hydro and also, today. We will be popping back to the Hydro

:50:39.:50:42.

in about 15 minutes time for the women's beam final. In the meantime

:50:43.:50:45.

I'm going to bring you up to date with what has been happening at

:50:46.:50:47.

Glasgow Green, we with what has been happening at

:50:48.:50:51.

to the gold medal match in the women's hockey. Is there no stopping

:50:52.:50:55.

Australia? They have made it through to the final. Beating South Africa

:50:56.:51:00.

7-1. South Africa couldn't keep up with Australia's pace and energy.

:51:01.:51:05.

Australia scored somel xent goals in the second half. They have scored 32

:51:06.:51:12.

goals in five games, some excellent. Led by Adam Commons that are coach,

:51:13.:51:15.

they are heading for the gold medal by the looks of it.

:51:16.:51:24.

On BBC Three, in just a few mopes time, you will be able to watch New

:51:25.:51:29.

Zealand taking on England. That is the other semifinal, Australia

:51:30.:51:33.

waiting in the final then, will it be Danny Kerry's England, can he

:51:34.:51:37.

lead them to the final? What a final that would be, England against

:51:38.:51:39.

Australia in the gold medal match. So that is on BBC Three very

:51:40.:51:44.

shortly, and the reason it is not on yet is because it is a Scotland

:51:45.:51:47.

versus England bat in the lawn bowls, in the men's pair, and

:51:48.:51:52.

Scotland lead 14-15 after 11 ends, so basically if you want the women's

:51:53.:51:58.

hockey, what you need to do is go to the website.

:51:59.:52:07.

Well, let us go to the SECC now, and in boxing, there could be a real

:52:08.:52:11.

gold rush of medals for the Home Nations, over the weekend. What we

:52:12.:52:15.

are going to focus on is the men's bantamweight semifinal line up. It

:52:16.:52:20.

is box office stuff for the bout between Michael Conlan, he is taking

:52:21.:52:23.

on the defending champion Sean McGoldrick of Wales. England's Qais

:52:24.:52:36.

Ashfaq. We start in round two, Conlan ahead

:52:37.:52:43.

of all three cards. First round to the taller man in

:52:44.:52:50.

red. Michael Conlan's Northern Ireland, boxing in his second

:52:51.:52:56.

Commonwealth Games. He lost a controversial round in Delhi to

:52:57.:53:02.

Jason Maloney. It was ten points apiece and Maloney got the nod

:53:03.:53:06.

because of his superior work rate. Connor looks -- Conlan looks as if

:53:07.:53:11.

he is about to pick that up. McGoldrick has that problem of

:53:12.:53:14.

getting inside the longer reach of the Northern Irish man, the boy from

:53:15.:53:24.

Belfast, boxer out of the St John Boscoe Club. McGoldrick used to move

:53:25.:53:28.

his head more. Conlon is working well with his jab. He is

:53:29.:53:32.

concentrating on bent arm work. He has to quicken his feet up. There is

:53:33.:53:38.

demonstrating there from Conlon he is prepared the work on the inside

:53:39.:53:42.

as well. That will give chance there to McGoldrick, but he has to take

:53:43.:53:47.

the opportunity tons inside. Again another single shot came in from the

:53:48.:53:52.

Welshman in blue. Conlan, throwing more leather as they say in the pro

:53:53.:53:58.

game. Good right hand into the ribs by Conlan. Lost in the semifinal of

:53:59.:54:02.

the Olympics in London a couple of year ago to the eventual gold medal

:54:03.:54:09.

winner Ramirez, one of those difficult Cuban, midway through the

:54:10.:54:12.

second. Again, Conlan just slipping that left hand into the ribs of the

:54:13.:54:17.

Welshman and being first after the break. He is boxing as a southpaw

:54:18.:54:23.

now, switching back to orthodox, so he is confident, trying to confuse

:54:24.:54:25.

McGoldrick a bit. McGoldrick, he is confident, trying to confuse

:54:26.:54:28.

feet are too slow. He is too far out, that is his problem, his

:54:29.:54:32.

problem is closing that gap down, without getting hit, and that is why

:54:33.:54:34.

he needs. to work.

:54:35.:55:32.

There has to be tactic change from both boxers. McGoldrick has to get

:55:33.:55:36.

on the front foot but Conlan has to box at distance and protect that

:55:37.:55:40.

eye. Look at McGoldrick, all he is focussing on is the right eye of his

:55:41.:55:45.

opponent Conlan, who is having trouble seeing out of that eye. That

:55:46.:55:50.

is main worry. Conlan is boxing well. They will look at it again and

:55:51.:55:54.

this is not looking good for Michael Conlan, the number two ranked

:55:55.:55:59.

bantamweight in the world. Ooh. He is shaking his head. He is shaking

:56:00.:56:05.

his head. It is the blood running into the eye that is the problem. He

:56:06.:56:10.

wipe as much of it away as possible. He stopped it. It has been stopped!

:56:11.:56:16.

Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear, from Michael Conlan, can you believe

:56:17.:56:19.

that? A terrific contest shaping up there, but it might come down to a

:56:20.:56:24.

technical decision if it was with the head, we will have to wait and

:56:25.:56:26.

see. If it was with the head it will the head, we will have to wait and

:56:27.:56:32.

go to the judges' scores. Conlan was certainly leading, but if it was

:56:33.:56:35.

done with a punch it will be a stodge and McGoldrick will go

:56:36.:56:40.

through to the final and Conlan will have to settle for bronze. Now was

:56:41.:56:46.

this the head? I think it was. Definitely was the head. Definitely

:56:47.:56:48.

was the head. What we said Definitely was the head. Definitely

:56:49.:56:53.

tournament. You have to be lucky, you have to go through five contests

:56:54.:56:57.

without receiving a head clash, that is very very difficult indeed. Even

:56:58.:56:59.

with Conlan's is very very difficult indeed. Even

:57:00.:57:02.

long range, here they come together, and he is just unfortunate. If they

:57:03.:57:08.

had head guards on that wouldn't have happened.

:57:09.:57:13.

Well, Michael Conlan has raised his hand. Heck cobbed it was caused by

:57:14.:57:17.

the head and therefore they are going to go to the judge -- judges'

:57:18.:57:24.

scores. Our referee has stopped this contest in round number two, we

:57:25.:57:29.

therefore go to the judges' score cards, the winner, by unanimous

:57:30.:57:33.

decision, and through to the final, in the red corner, Michael Conlan.

:57:34.:57:42.

That is a nasty looking crescent shaped cut above his eye, to have

:57:43.:57:47.

only 24 hours to work on it. But Michael Conlan has gone through, and

:57:48.:57:51.

having been disappointed in Delhi four years ago, he will be

:57:52.:57:54.

disappointed with the outcome that in terms of what it meant to him.

:57:55.:57:57.

Michael Conlan is the first Northern Irish boxer through to the finals

:57:58.:58:02.

here in Glasgow 2014. A bit of controversy about it, there is no

:58:03.:58:06.

question he was the wetter boxer all the way through, and Michael Conlan

:58:07.:58:10.

knows he is badly cut and he knows a lot of skill is going to be

:58:11.:58:13.

required. And Shaun McGoldrick who got to the final four yearses ago

:58:14.:58:18.

and was given the gold medal will have to settle for bronze. What an

:58:19.:58:23.

end to the contest, none sat factory you could say but Michael Conlan has

:58:24.:58:29.

-- unsatisfactory you could say. Michael was taken away for treatment

:58:30.:58:32.

due to that bad cut. You will notice the women fighters will still wear

:58:33.:58:36.

head-guard in this Commonwealth Games whereas the men don't. The

:58:37.:58:40.

boxing authority say male fighters are more likely to suffer concussion

:58:41.:58:44.

if they wear protection, a consequence, we have seen a bit of

:58:45.:58:49.

blood in the ring, unlike as recent Commonwealths, so to the men's

:58:50.:58:56.

flyweight. In the first of two semifinals, Waseem of Pakistan beat

:58:57.:59:06.

Omar. We join the second one, mechanic fan -- McFadden versus

:59:07.:59:13.

Moloney. So moving to the third and final

:59:14.:59:20.

round. 52 kilogram flyweight semifinal action. McFadden wearing

:59:21.:59:26.

red. Looking to book his place in the final, he has talked of being a

:59:27.:59:30.

man of destiny. He has used the crowd and the atmosphere in and the

:59:31.:59:34.

energy throughout the course of this tournament. But this is a hugely

:59:35.:59:39.

tactical and cagey encounter against the man in blue from Australia.

:59:40.:59:55.

Everything to compete for. The prize of cause is a gold or silver medal.

:59:56.:00:09.

Minute gone in this third and final round and the cagey pattern

:00:10.:00:28.

continues. The referee warned him for being low. McFadden onto the

:00:29.:00:49.

front foot. Lovely shot from McFadden. Here is where the crowd

:00:50.:00:57.

can play a part. Beyond the halfway stage. McFadden has landed perhaps

:00:58.:01:22.

the more eye-catching shots. Body shot success from McFadden. Very

:01:23.:01:28.

often the boxer who leads is often the one who gets caught with the

:01:29.:01:36.

shots. This is where he has got to go to work on the inside now. The

:01:37.:01:55.

final 30 seconds will be crucial. His opponent steps away now and

:01:56.:02:00.

again with a low left hand. McFadden took a quick glance to his corner.

:02:01.:02:11.

It is going to be furious finish. Back to the ropes. Setting a trap

:02:12.:02:25.

for Maloney again. Comes forward. McFadden feels he has done enough.

:02:26.:02:31.

Going into the third and final round it was tied. One judge had it in

:02:32.:02:37.

favour of McFadden. Just looking to see if there is a slight cut on his

:02:38.:02:45.

eye. I think this might be split. Just did the better work for me. It

:02:46.:02:51.

was nothing in it. Very close. Maloney still did not want to commit

:02:52.:02:58.

but that made McFadden come forward. Maybe one or two getting through.

:02:59.:03:05.

Very close indeed. I just think McFadden has got the nod. We have a

:03:06.:03:13.

split decision. In favour of the winner, now through to the final, in

:03:14.:03:25.

the blue corner Andrew Moloney. Andrew Moloney jumps the joy. Just

:03:26.:03:30.

booked his place in the gold-medal bout. The fairy tale run of Reece

:03:31.:03:38.

McFadden comes to an end at the semifinal stage but the 19-year-old

:03:39.:03:44.

from Motherwell acknowledges the crowd because he has illuminated

:03:45.:03:50.

this tournament with his skill, tenacity and comes away with a

:03:51.:03:57.

Commonwealth Games bronze medal. Just 19 years of age and most

:03:58.:04:03.

certainly a name we will see in huge international tournaments

:04:04.:04:04.

representing Scotland and Great Britain. From Belarus... I promised

:04:05.:04:12.

at the start we had some wonderful boxing from the SEC see. It has

:04:13.:04:17.

proved and it looks like we will have a gold rush of medals for the

:04:18.:04:23.

home nations. We will go back to the Hydro and Kristian Thomas and see

:04:24.:04:31.

him getting his silver medal. Well done to Kristian Thomas. England's

:04:32.:04:39.

only representative, led the way in qualifying and had a great chance to

:04:40.:04:42.

win his first individual Commonwealth Games medal. Canada's

:04:43.:04:51.

Scott Morgan winning the gold. He won silver on the floor and gold on

:04:52.:04:55.

the rings. Many congratulations to Kristian Thomas. Canada have now won

:04:56.:05:04.

their 28th gold medal. There are the three medal winners.

:05:05.:05:25.

Scott Morgan, Kristian Thomas There are the three medal winners.

:05:26.:05:45.

right. Just incredible. It all goes well for the future. They have

:05:46.:06:04.

organised themselves in Singapore. Rewards of a bronze medal will see

:06:05.:06:10.

them in good stead. We are awaiting the arrival of the gymnasts for the

:06:11.:06:19.

beam final. We have got two English gymnasts and two Welsh gymnasts

:06:20.:06:30.

going in that particular final. Home nations doing incredibly well. There

:06:31.:06:44.

could be a chance of another Welsh medal. Christine, your gymnasts,

:06:45.:06:51.

Georgina Hockenhull. What a work have you been doing? The beam is her

:06:52.:07:00.

best piece and we are delighted she has made the final. Realistically

:07:01.:07:05.

there are perhaps three or four others with higher starter scores.

:07:06.:07:14.

Sometimes she can get a little bit nervous? She can, she worked first

:07:15.:07:21.

in the individual all-round. Rebecca Downie, Lauren Mitchell and Claudia

:07:22.:07:32.

Fragapane aim have the big difficulty value. It is a piece of

:07:33.:07:40.

apparatus you can never call. It is a story of who stays on? And also

:07:41.:07:48.

who stays on without wobbles. Quite often to get your star value you

:07:49.:07:52.

have two link two elements. If often to get your star value you

:07:53.:07:54.

first one does not go well, you don't do the second. Here are the

:07:55.:07:59.

top eight don't do the second. Here are the

:08:00.:08:11.

Rebecca Downie, Claudia Fragapane E. Elisabeth Beddoe from Wales.

:08:12.:08:15.

Georgina Hockenhull from Wales and Ellie Black from Canada, who

:08:16.:08:17.

Georgina Hockenhull from Wales and the last one to go in this final. We

:08:18.:08:22.

watched Rebecca warming up this morning and she was looking sharp.

:08:23.:08:31.

She is beautiful on the beam. I think if she goes without major

:08:32.:08:35.

error she will probably is the first gymnast post is scored the others

:08:36.:08:42.

will struggle to beat. But she is coming into the arena, you don't

:08:43.:08:48.

warm up in the arena. Rebecca being introduced to the Hydro arena.

:08:49.:08:59.

Maryanne Munton, the Australian beam champion. She has just watched her

:09:00.:09:18.

compatriot take gold. Georgina Hockenhull for Wales. Ellie Black,

:09:19.:09:29.

who has already had a silver medal in vault. Ellie Black has the most

:09:30.:09:37.

difficult routine. If she hits everything she has the highest

:09:38.:09:40.

difficulty score. But it is difficult and she cannot always hit

:09:41.:09:47.

it. I think it will suit their keep being first appear, Chris? Yes, I

:09:48.:09:54.

do. She has a plan in her mind, she just walked straight into this arena

:09:55.:10:01.

here and we'll just go for it. Of course, she won the gold medal on

:10:02.:10:06.

the bars yesterday. Commonwealth champion, European champion on the

:10:07.:10:11.

bars, so she should be feeling the positive vibe. First gymnast to go

:10:12.:10:25.

in the women's beam final. Rebecca Downie for England. Steadies her

:10:26.:10:35.

nerve. Slow, quiet start. Just splits. She has a wonderful range of

:10:36.:10:41.

movement. Has to focus hard on this first summer self. She didn't get

:10:42.:10:49.

both feet on. She made the same error in qualification but got back

:10:50.:10:53.
