Kelly Holmes for Great Britain. What a performance. You absolutely

:00:52.:01:02.
:01:02.:01:09.

for the World Championships. So far it is proving to be their turn of

:01:09.:01:13.

the unexpected, especially where the British men are concerned. -- a

:01:13.:01:23.
:01:23.:01:25.

tale of the unexpected. We still have some chances to make our mark,

:01:25.:01:29.

including with Daniel Purvis, who can keep calm. He is the kind of

:01:29.:01:33.

man that can keep his head when all-around of losing theirs and

:01:33.:01:37.

blaming it on you. If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,

:01:37.:01:42.

but make allowance for their doubting, too. If you can dream,

:01:42.:01:47.

and not make dreams your master. If you can think, and not make

:01:47.:01:53.

thoughts your aim. If you can meet with triumph and disaster, and

:01:53.:01:59.

treat those two impostors just the same. If you can fill the

:01:59.:02:03.

unforgiving minute with 60 seconds worth of distance runner, yours is

:02:03.:02:09.

the Earth and everything that's in it. And what more, you'll be a man,

:02:09.:02:19.

my son. -- what is more. Poetry in motion. He has already

:02:19.:02:24.

had a good go when qualification but none of that matters. It is all

:02:24.:02:30.

about the final. Daniel Purvis for Great Britain. Come on, Daniel.

:02:30.:02:39.

Lovely height. Daniel Purvis! He is brilliant in the air. Very well

:02:39.:02:47.

controlled. A really strong performance from Daniel Purvis.

:02:47.:02:50.

are these emotions were flying around during a qualification round,

:02:50.:02:54.

you managed to keep your head and qualifier with the 6th highest

:02:54.:02:57.

score for the all-around competition. Was that quite a

:02:57.:03:02.

challenge, knowing the pressures going on in qualification? Yes, it

:03:02.:03:11.

was challenging. There were a few mistakes, but I try to think about

:03:11.:03:15.

what I have been doing in training and calm myself down. There were

:03:15.:03:23.

some pieces, like vault, Wi-Fi had overstepped, I could have fallen. I

:03:23.:03:28.

overcooked it, and I took the step. I still got a decent score. That

:03:28.:03:35.

added to it. He finished 5th at the World Championships last year. Can

:03:35.:03:42.

you don't hire? With the training I have been doing, I have increased

:03:42.:03:45.

my start values. I am confident that I can compete with the best in

:03:45.:03:53.

the world. You are starting on the floor. Is that order of events good

:03:53.:03:59.

for you? Yes, and I am with the top six gymnasts in the world so it is

:03:59.:04:03.

great to watch them. I did the same last year and I was in over my head.

:04:04.:04:08.

It was my first World Championships. Now I am more confident and I feel

:04:08.:04:12.

like I belong with the top in the world. What has gone through your

:04:12.:04:15.

mind in that year? It was a shock for you to be there with these guys,

:04:15.:04:18.

and now you have had the preparation and you know how it

:04:19.:04:22.

will feel. How different do you feel this year compared to last

:04:22.:04:28.

year? I feel more ready. I know what is expected. Last year I was

:04:28.:04:33.

really nervous. I did a clean competition but it was difficult. I

:04:33.:04:36.

hope to go more steady and do better this time, if everything

:04:36.:04:42.

goes well. Do you approach it with a tap? Do you try and feel it as

:04:42.:04:51.

you go? -- with attack. I just want to go and enjoy it. You do not know

:04:51.:04:55.

how many World Championships you will dude. I keep trying to do each

:04:55.:05:00.

routine as it comes. I do not want to worry about what other people

:05:00.:05:05.

are doing. If I go clean, I will be up there. Thinking ahead to the

:05:05.:05:08.

Olympics, what does this competition mean as far as the

:05:08.:05:14.

Olympics are concerned? If I can do well now, that puts it in the

:05:14.:05:19.

Judges' heads. And it is good running for the Olympic medal. I

:05:19.:05:26.

tried to do what I can. So the secret is to spend as much time as

:05:26.:05:32.

you can medicating in Japanese temples. But how will the immovable

:05:32.:05:36.

object compete with the unstoppable force of Kohei Uchimura of Japan?

:05:36.:05:46.
:05:46.:06:05.

He is proving to be one of the around gymnast that there has ever

:06:05.:06:15.
:06:15.:06:24.

The great Kohei Uchimura goes for his third consecutive all-around

:06:24.:06:30.

title. It has never been done before. He is in the same group as

:06:30.:06:34.

Daniel Purvis. He will be the first gymnast up to kick off this all-

:06:34.:06:42.

around final. We are very excited indeed. We have British hope.

:06:42.:06:49.

Daniel Purvis is currently ranked in 5th. Six pieces of apparatus and

:06:49.:06:59.
:06:59.:07:05.

that is the man that everybody is bronze medallist Daniel Purvis.

:07:05.:07:15.
:07:15.:07:44.

has got to be doing. He cannot long as they are nice and smooth. -

:07:44.:07:54.
:07:54.:08:15.

with no hand touch. Wonderful Daniel Purvis. One of the hardest

:08:15.:08:18.

routines that you will see in this final. Really impressive start from

:08:18.:08:24.

home. Every other gymnast knows that they have to be better than

:08:24.:08:34.
:08:34.:08:36.

pommel horse. He was just outside the medals at the last World

:08:37.:08:46.
:08:47.:09:06.

Championships and the one before feet are glued together. These are

:09:06.:09:09.

all of the things that the judges are looking to deduct four and he

:09:09.:09:19.
:09:19.:09:28.

but that was a very good start on a tough piece of apparatus. He made

:09:28.:09:35.

it look easy! Just a small glitch at the end. Daniel Purvis, 15.033.

:09:35.:09:45.
:09:45.:10:00.

Very good. Kohei -- Koji Yamamuro. Great on the reins and dynamic on

the floor. Very solid at the start. you rolled out instead of rolling

:10:49.:10:54.

forward. He did. That will be an error and the judges will pick it

:10:54.:11:04.
:11:04.:11:05.

up. Koji Yamamuro has given the tiny margin to deduct. The Tamblyn

:11:05.:11:15.
:11:15.:11:16.

was strong and solid, but there was that Enron. -- at the tumbling was

:11:16.:11:26.
:11:26.:11:33.

strong and solid but there was that but it has to be performed well. He

:11:33.:11:40.

does it. Double front somersault. But a shame that he allowed himself

:11:40.:11:50.

one pays for words. He landed well. -- one pace for words. I think he

:11:50.:11:56.

is the youngest gymnast in the competition. His shoulders were

:11:56.:12:03.

just too far in front of his feet on landing. Yes, but lovely height.

:12:03.:12:12.

The judges will be docked for the knees being pulled apart. That is

laid down the gauntlet there. impressive work. He is such a

:14:00.:14:04.

dynamic gymnast. You almost expect him not to be able to control his

:14:04.:14:10.

power but he has obviously worked really hard at it. Just one little

:14:10.:14:18.

mistake on for London with all of those tumbles. -- on the landing.

:14:18.:14:24.

Fabulous technique. The first tumble, two twists, one somersault

:14:24.:14:31.

straight. He grabbed the floor with his toes. A tiny bit of direction.

:14:31.:14:36.

The final tumble. The beautiful shape in this double straight

:14:36.:14:46.
:14:46.:15:04.

somersault. He just absorbs all of did not quite get round clearly

:15:04.:15:14.

enough. It was feet-first but the you are totally committed. You just

pull and hope... That was very close but he worked so hard.

:15:27.:15:32.

Squeezed it tight. Kept his head a foot off the floor. That will be

:15:32.:15:42.
:15:42.:15:50.

a score of 16. But don't be too fooled by those vaulters. It is

:15:50.:15:57.

such a high-scoring piece of apparatus. Leyva in 8th. His score

:15:57.:16:07.
:16:07.:16:09.

is down. John Orozco was the second highest

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 41 seconds

qualifier in the all-around That's a feature of his work. He

:17:00.:17:10.
:17:10.:17:18.

works clean rather than with great his legs at the end. That will be

:17:18.:17:21.

quite expensive. Everyone is having a little wriggle on the floor but

:17:21.:17:29.

he seems to be the calmest of the American gymnasts.

:17:29.:17:38.

John Orozco is lying in 12th. Well, the Arena is absolutely

:17:38.:17:43.

packed and this is the man that the majority of people have come to see,

:17:43.:17:48.

the current world champion going for his third consecutive all-

:17:48.:17:58.
:17:58.:18:14.

around title. being hit, and so far he is proving

:18:14.:18:19.

that. Picked up really well from the flick to the double Arabian. He

:18:19.:18:25.

really is looking good tonight. Once again that's a solid landing

:18:25.:18:35.
:18:35.:18:58.

you don't waste any deductions for landing.

:18:58.:19:05.

Triple twist and that's the sort of landing he can do! That was amazing.

:19:05.:19:10.

Wow! He's got the glue on his feet tonight. What a routine. He really

:19:10.:19:15.

did not give a tenth away. Where on earth are the judges going to

:19:15.:19:21.

deduct in that routine? What a start to his competition! He

:19:21.:19:27.

had such a wonderful routine. He never waited. Just went through one

:19:27.:19:33.

after another, and just incredible. Respect from everybody here.

:19:33.:19:39.

Everyone knows how difficult it is to handle the pressure to execute

:19:39.:19:44.

everything perfectly. That's just what he did. The full twist into

:19:44.:19:49.

the double twist, absolutely met the floor perfectly. Timed

:19:49.:19:54.

everything so well. Half turn in, double front-piked and when he sees

:19:54.:19:59.

the floor, makes the half turn out and lands just as if he had jumped

:19:59.:20:04.

off a bench. Perfect precision. He's only got

:20:04.:20:11.

inchs to spare. He had a big think about the final

:20:11.:20:16.

tumble. Flared the arms out to decelerate and finish that triple

:20:16.:20:26.
:20:26.:20:34.

hasn't let anybody down. 15.566. I can't wait for pommel horse.

:20:34.:20:38.

Philipp Boy from Germany took silver at last year's all-around

:20:38.:20:48.
:20:48.:20:48.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 41 seconds

:20:48.:21:36.

dynamic power, two-and-a-half twists into front somi with full

:21:36.:21:41.

twist. Each landing has had a little bounce on. Probably a 0.3

:21:42.:21:48.

deduction off east. Maybe a 0.1 if it is little. Now he has to

:21:48.:21:52.

concentrate. A triple twist. A very good routine but there were little

:21:52.:21:56.

deductions. He didn't have much none in the team final but he seems

:21:56.:22:04.

to be thriving on this energy created by the previous competitor.

:22:04.:22:14.
:22:14.:22:47.

Mykola Kuksenov, he could threaten disappointed with that start.

:22:47.:22:57.

Mykola Kuksenov, 1500 on pommel. A The world medal continues on pommel

into the dismount. That was a very good opening challenge. Like a

Bullet Train wasn't he, going around there. Wonderful posture,

:24:55.:24:59.

super hips driving it forwards. Unbeliever n.

:24:59.:25:05.

This is Rafael Martinez of Spain. 27 years old.

:25:05.:25:15.
:25:15.:25:48.

to rescue that. One-and-a-half twists in the double-tuck

:25:49.:25:56.

somersault. He did so well. Using all of his experience.

:25:56.:26:06.
:26:06.:26:06.

Yamamuro. He awaits his fate. Rafael Martinez 13.891. He's

:26:06.:26:16.
:26:16.:26:21.

disappointed. 14.666 for Koji Yamamuro. He even

stepdad bouncing around. You will see him on high bar later on trying

:27:27.:27:34.

to get some extra points! Marcel Nguyen. Such a slight figure

:27:34.:27:44.
:27:44.:27:44.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 41 seconds

:27:44.:28:35.

the double straight. He was perfectly times. The swing on that

:28:35.:28:45.
:28:45.:28:48.

was so well done. 14.333. Pommel horse for Leyva. Quite a heavy

:28:48.:28:53.

routine, that one. In the team final there is such a buzz around

:28:53.:28:56.

the American team. There seems to be something missing from the

:28:56.:29:06.
:29:06.:29:30.

Americans this this individual all- Up to that handstand. Very good.

:29:30.:29:37.

He's been very impressive on the support pieces.

:29:38.:29:42.

Look at the lovely lift and body shape as he comes round on all of

:29:42.:29:47.

these circles. Travels well. Has to keep the hands

:29:47.:29:55.

in line as he travels. Oh, my goodness me, and that will

:29:55.:30:00.

be very costly at the end. He went out the other side door

:30:00.:30:10.
:30:10.:30:13.

really, didn't he, Mitch? Going back to that dismount he will

:30:13.:30:18.

probably lose the bell over it, because he will get the C for the

:30:18.:30:22.

first bit but you need to finish with a da.. He might lose the whole

:30:22.:30:29.

thing. -- finish with a D. He might lose the whole thing. Everyone has

:30:29.:30:39.
:30:39.:31:03.

ranks. Amazing. He can twist. They have named it after the guy that

:31:03.:31:12.

did it first. Lopez. This is just unbelievable. Unbelievable to come

:31:12.:31:17.

out of it and spot the landing and stop the twisting. I was going to

:31:17.:31:23.

say that. It took a lot of force to stop. It is a massive score! He is

:31:23.:31:33.
:31:33.:31:47.

This competition has had more twists and turns than a gymnastics

:31:47.:31:57.
:31:57.:31:57.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 41 seconds

:31:57.:32:57.

finish. 6.3 or 6.4. That man is on form. So secure. He has qualified

:32:57.:33:02.

for the pommel horse individual apparatus final, he is that good.

:33:02.:33:07.

He looks so in control of everything, doesn't he? He changed

:33:07.:33:12.

the tempo during the routine. Sometimes fast, sometimes slower.

:33:12.:33:18.

He could control each of the elements that he was performing. He

:33:18.:33:27.

really looks in superb shape. And in fantastic control. Like you said,

:33:27.:33:35.

real swinger. No strength. He looks like he is enjoying himself. You

:33:35.:33:39.

come to the arena in front of your home crowd and there will be

:33:39.:33:42.

pressure, but his smiles are getting bigger as the apparatus

:33:42.:33:52.
:33:52.:34:15.

is what Kohei Uchimura is after. He will be over 16, sin. -- soon.

:34:15.:34:20.

will be on for 91 if he keeps this up and his best pieces are still to

:34:20.:34:29.

come. Philipp Boy has a little word to himself. Can he lay to rest the

:34:29.:34:34.

ghosts that haunted him in the team final? Every team has got their

:34:34.:34:38.

problem. And for the German team it was the pommel horse. That is

:34:38.:34:48.
:34:48.:35:03.

This is more like the man that was European champion and silver

:35:03.:35:09.

medallist. The rhythm here will be very important. Can he keep going?

:35:09.:35:15.

Well done indeed. Look at the relief on his face. I am relieved

:35:15.:35:21.

for him! Absolutely. We saw him struggle so much in team

:35:21.:35:25.

qualification. They started on pommel horse in qualification and

:35:25.:35:29.

they were all over the place, and again in team finals. It is so good

:35:29.:35:34.

to see the gymnast pull themselves together. A couple of areas that

:35:35.:35:39.

were deductible. That was not one, it was very good. Psychologically

:35:39.:35:44.

he will be in a good place. He had one problem, but he got over it and

:35:44.:35:48.

he is getting through his routine. That makes you think that Lady Luck

:35:48.:35:55.

could be on your side. You can just see the relief on his face. If you

:35:56.:36:05.

are going to come good, now is the time to do it. Soo Myun Kim is up

:36:05.:36:15.
:36:15.:36:15.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 41 seconds

:36:15.:37:23.

element. That is a good position. And a solid handstand. Now he is

:37:23.:37:30.

regaining a bit. He controlled it well. Into the front somersault

:37:30.:37:34.

which is very difficult and quite unusual. That was an efficient

:37:34.:37:38.

routine. That is the word that I think epitomises this guy,

:37:38.:37:48.
:37:48.:37:51.

efficiency. He was in 9th after the first rotation. Another one that

:37:51.:37:56.

you cannot write off. He was impressive. He will be in the top

:37:56.:38:02.

10, comfortably. His 4th all round. He will get better as the

:38:02.:38:12.

competition goes on. -- 4th all- around. His weakness of the

:38:12.:38:19.

strength positions. He is an elegant swinger. That double pike,

:38:19.:38:29.
:38:29.:38:54.

this particular rotation and the gymnasts will be moving on. First

:38:54.:39:00.

group will go to rings, the second to vault, the third to parallel

:39:00.:39:10.
:39:10.:39:21.

bars, and the 4th group should be Lots of height. He has done such a

:39:21.:39:26.

good job for the Chinese team. Since 2003 he has been there,

:39:26.:39:35.

reliable always. The only gymnast from China to qualify for the all-

:39:35.:39:42.

around. They went for the team title, successful of course. Lovely

:39:42.:39:52.
:39:52.:39:53.

style. He is proving his worth. That is a great vault. Two-and-a-

:39:53.:40:03.
:40:03.:40:11.

half twists. 15.6334 Teng Haibin. Kohei Uchimura is living up to

:40:11.:40:21.
:40:21.:40:40.

on the pommel horse meant he had a long way to go. John Orozco did

:40:40.:40:45.

some damage on the pommel horse as well. What are your thoughts so

:40:45.:40:51.

far? Kohei Uchimura is just amazing. He is incredible, isn't he?

:40:51.:40:55.

Fantastic. I think that Japan are back with a vengeance after

:40:55.:41:00.

slipping in the team final. Kohei Uchimura smashed the floor, and did

:41:00.:41:04.

his routine beautifully. What we your thoughts on the pommel horse?

:41:04.:41:11.

You will be up against that. think he is just tried to put in

:41:12.:41:14.

good scores because if he goes through safely, he will get the

:41:14.:41:19.

title. Nice to see Philipp Boy clinging on. He had a nightmare in

:41:19.:41:23.

the team final but individually things are going all right for him.

:41:23.:41:27.

A few people had some estate in the team final, but they have sharpened

:41:27.:41:33.

up in the all-around. Philipp Boy has got his routine. I think it is

:41:33.:41:36.

tough to start in the top group with the best gymnasts. He is

:41:36.:41:40.

keeping his nerve well. He got through the pommel horse routine

:41:40.:41:44.

and he will be happy with that. Another gymnast in that top group,

:41:44.:41:48.

Dan Purvis. He stayed on the pommel horse and got through. Consistency

:41:48.:41:53.

is the key with six pieces. He is keeping the men's spirit alive in

:41:53.:41:57.

this competition. He did fantastically well. He paced his

:41:57.:42:04.

floor routine. He is nervous to start with the big boys. There was

:42:04.:42:09.

a slight split on his pommel horse routine but he got a 14 at the

:42:09.:42:16.

score. Really good. What do you think about his spirit? I think he

:42:16.:42:20.

is really good. After his floor routine, he clapped his hands, and

:42:20.:42:24.

after the pommel, he looked at me and his coach was clapping away. I

:42:24.:42:28.

think he has got a good ride. In the third rotation he has relaxed a

:42:28.:42:35.

bit and got into bed swing of things. I think that he can contend

:42:35.:42:45.
:42:45.:42:45.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 41 seconds

:42:45.:43:44.

for a medal. Watch this space, Dan feet first, that is very well done

:43:44.:43:52.

indeed. He has killed the swing, absolutely brilliant. Full twist,

:43:52.:43:56.

double straight. Not the best of routines, but controlled and

:43:56.:44:00.

focused and he brought it back. That was great. I think he shows

:44:00.:44:06.

one of the best handstand shapes on rings. Really good style in that

:44:06.:44:12.

situation. That is quite typical of the younger gymnasts. They have a

:44:12.:44:22.
:44:22.:44:26.

really strong handstand shape in double straight. He whips around.

:44:26.:44:31.

He just wants the feet as high as the hits on that. And the hips as

:44:31.:44:41.
:44:41.:44:46.

low as the shoulders to get before Mark for that position. -- all of

:44:46.:44:56.
:44:56.:45:35.

the marks for that position. He did bent arms.

:45:35.:45:40.

He holds the handstands well. Pirouettes cut a little movement

:45:40.:45:47.

there, a shuffle of the hands. Very nice full pirouette on the

:45:47.:45:51.

upward swing. A difficult dismount, the double front. More difficult

:45:51.:45:56.

than the double back. He didn't really make a mark on last year's

:45:56.:46:04.

World Championships. Danell Leyva, 14.341.

:46:04.:46:08.

Belyavskiy didn't really make a mark last year but this year he's

:46:08.:46:13.

leading after two pieces of apparatus.

:46:13.:46:20.

This is Nguyen's third piece. lovely, stylish gymnast. But that

:46:20.:46:25.

is very costly. Although he landed on the mat, the deduction won't be

:46:25.:46:30.

as big as if he landed off it. But the big step to the side, at least

:46:30.:46:40.
:46:40.:46:54.

foot right. That will really cost him.

:46:54.:47:00.

15.133 says he is up in second place. But don't take that for

:47:00.:47:10.
:47:10.:47:41.

lovely two-and-a-half twist. The flip-on allows the gymnasts to lift

:47:41.:47:45.

purely and straight into the air. It makes direction easier for them

:47:45.:47:50.

than from the half turn on. The Ukrainian qualifyed with a

:47:50.:48:00.
:48:00.:48:00.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 41 seconds

:48:00.:49:22.

score of 15.8166. there is that fantastic landing

:49:22.:49:27.

again. He's halfway round and I will tell you what, I said the

:49:27.:49:31.

smile's getting bigger after every piece! I can't imagine what he's

:49:31.:49:37.

going to be like after the high bar. I will tell you what, that is

:49:37.:49:42.

phenomenal. He's an all-around gymnast. Look at the line there,

:49:42.:49:49.

Chris. So in control of everything. Now you can see the feet as high as

:49:49.:49:57.

the hips. That's a good angle to see. Holding that body out straight.

:49:57.:50:01.

So difficult. And this, the somersault, straight and killed

:50:01.:50:09.

into the strength position. Really impressive work. Swinging on

:50:09.:50:13.

beautifully straight arms. Turning the rings, but this is what

:50:13.:50:19.

impresses me most. He just doesn't flicker on landing. Even that

:50:20.:50:24.

tucked position, it is straight with bent legs. It's wonderful

:50:24.:50:34.
:50:34.:50:35.

positioning. 15.166. He's up above that golden

:50:35.:50:44.

He will feel he's got a fair bit to prove to the crowd tonight after a

:50:44.:50:52.

disappointing performance in the team final. 16.033 for Mykola

:50:52.:51:02.
:51:02.:51:02.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 41 seconds

:51:02.:51:43.

so a tiny deduction. A super dismount. He was fifth after two

:51:43.:51:53.
:51:53.:51:56.

pieces of apparatus. He's a great gynnast. Very modest. -- gymnast.

:51:56.:52:00.

Very modest. Works hard. Good technique here but you can see

:52:00.:52:07.

knees and feet croced again. Wrinklings his toes up for the

:52:07.:52:17.
:52:17.:52:31.

handstand. Gets up sharply in the piece. He will move on to high bar.

:52:31.:52:39.

He's popped down into sixth. Philipp Boy now on the rings.

:52:39.:52:49.
:52:49.:52:49.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 41 seconds

:52:49.:53:47.

done. Not as smooth as he would like, but he's battling through it.

:53:47.:53:57.
:53:57.:54:02.

Three for three, a lot better than twisting vaults so well. Really

:54:02.:54:09.

lobbed that into the air. Wrapped the twists in. The use of this

:54:09.:54:14.

platform in this last cycle has become so impressive on vault.

:54:14.:54:22.

Philipp Boy 14.5. Going back to that thought on the

:54:22.:54:27.

vault, from the long box that we saw. Then it became the horse, then

:54:27.:54:35.

this table, which is a metre square. It is a lot safer. Safer and much

:54:35.:54:39.

more block, so if he hit the right point and work with the table, they

:54:39.:54:49.
:54:49.:54:51.

can get enormous lift. Rafael Martinez 16.1. He'll be

:54:51.:54:57.

delighted with that. Such a brilliant twister and turner

:54:57.:55:07.
:55:07.:55:07.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 41 seconds

:55:07.:55:55.

on floor and vault. Hopefully we'll vault. No, he slapped the floor,

:55:55.:55:59.

didn't he? That's his next piece, now, so he will be focusing on the

:55:59.:56:09.
:56:09.:56:11.

runway. He's watching his team-mate, the

:56:11.:56:21.
:56:21.:56:21.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 41 seconds

:56:21.:57:11.

last gymnast in the top group to go him working to try and straighten

:57:11.:57:20.

it out. That must have been a huge strain

:57:20.:57:30.
:57:30.:57:30.

to binge that back on-line. -- bring.

:57:30.:57:36.

He did well. Just overtipped him at the end. Once you start swinging,

:57:36.:57:45.

unless you get in charge of it, it bring that back. Not only did he

:57:45.:57:50.

have a forward and back southward swing, but a side to side as well.

:57:50.:57:56.

To try and stop yourself swinging in that position... You can see the

:57:56.:58:03.

power in his shoulders and arms. This really is the event that tests

:58:03.:58:08.

your upper body strength to its limit.

:58:08.:58:14.

Every muscle straining. That is lovely. Shoulders well down.

:58:14.:58:20.

He has to show the swing as well as the strength. You can see how he is

:58:20.:58:30.
:58:30.:58:34.

just swaying a little bit from side to side. Dismount, all important.

:58:34.:58:40.

He's probably a little bit disappointed. He's been waiting to

:58:40.:58:44.

show his skill on that apparatus. He will have to wait for the

:58:44.:58:52.

individual apparatus finals. Hing he's a very dynamic -- I think

:58:52.:59:02.
:59:02.:59:08.

he's a very dynamic gymnast. Koji Yamamuro 15.125. He's into ninth.

:59:08.:59:11.

Vault is their next piece of apparatus. Everything should sort

:59:11.:59:21.
:59:21.:59:23.

itself out after that. Daniel Purvis qualifyed with the

:59:23.:59:28.

sixth-highest score. He was ranked fifth because gymnasts can't

:59:28.:59:38.
:59:38.:59:38.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 41 seconds

:59:38.:00:19.

compete if there is more than two see his score go over 16. He tried

:00:19.:00:23.

in vault with seven in qualification. Will he hold back

:00:23.:00:33.
:00:33.:00:36.

here, one wonders? -- worth seven. There is his number. 6.6. He is

:00:36.:00:42.

holding back. The reserved character of Kohei Uchimura.

:00:42.:00:52.
:00:52.:00:54.

shows you how much he wants the gold medal. Do you blame him?

:00:54.:01:04.

Look at his wonderful set-up. Seeing that line. Focus the vault

:01:04.:01:13.

on that line. Two-and-a-half twists. Fabulous landing. We need to close

:01:13.:01:18.

up to see if he was dead in line but it looked it from our angle.

:01:18.:01:24.

Absolutely extraordinary. Number four. This is just the ultimate,

:01:24.:01:32.

ultimate performance. Absolutely. So cool under pressure. The huge

:01:32.:01:37.

weight of expectation on him. He ambles down at the runway and

:01:37.:01:46.

harnesses it beautifully. Central Armando. Two-and-a-half twists to

:01:46.:01:54.

make it 6.6. -- central on landing. Look at the height. We can call

:01:54.:02:00.

these landings the natural landings. I have never seen anything like it

:02:00.:02:06.

in my life. Not a natural! If the judge thought it was perfect, he

:02:06.:02:16.
:02:16.:02:16.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 41 seconds

:02:16.:03:02.

will score 16.6. I defy them to and then the control at the top of

:03:02.:03:12.
:03:12.:03:25.

many times that consistency is the key. He was going well. Two more to

:03:25.:03:33.

go. To change groups can be difficult, but he seems to be doing

:03:33.:03:38.

it very easily. He lost the shape, but ferry clean half-turn, which

:03:38.:03:48.
:03:48.:03:49.

can be difficult. -- very clean. Soggy at the back, but he tidied it

:03:49.:03:59.
:03:59.:04:02.

up nicely. He is in third. He is having such a good competition.

:04:02.:04:07.

never looks phased. He always looks like he is performing well within

:04:07.:04:15.

his capabilities and grasp. Very much the measure of the well-

:04:15.:04:25.
:04:25.:04:25.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 41 seconds

:04:25.:05:50.

skip and jump forward at the end. That was his best piece of

:05:50.:05:56.

apparatus. Good lift out of that back-flip. The half-turn into the

:05:56.:06:03.

double front somersault. Very nice and clean work. The gymnast has to

:06:03.:06:09.

be well above the floor there. The round-off where he changes

:06:09.:06:19.
:06:19.:06:19.

direction. It is very difficult, the 2 and a half twists, it to land.

:06:19.:06:29.
:06:29.:06:29.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 41 seconds

:06:29.:07:47.

That is why so many do a somersault the middle. He got the silver at

:07:47.:07:51.

the World Championships on parallel bars. But that was a super dismount.

:07:51.:07:58.

He is a good gymnast. Many years ago he saved the Chinese gold medal

:07:58.:08:04.

by producing a very good high bar. That is doing no favours at all. He

:08:04.:08:09.

was a little bit short on most of his pirouettes. He did not really

:08:09.:08:16.

lock out on straight arms enough either. The only Chinese gymnast in

:08:16.:08:22.

the all-around final, surprisingly. I think they were saving the team.

:08:22.:08:30.

I think he was possibly the only one who worked all pieces. Pascal

Bucher is up into the top 10 with His knees buckled a bit, but he

:10:02.:10:06.

controlled it well. He is very efficient when he hits the platform,

:10:07.:10:13.

his shoulders are open and he rockets of the top. He is so

:10:13.:10:23.

focused. Very sharp off the top. Deep on the landing. The conversion

:10:23.:10:29.

up words was so efficient. And look at the liner, through hips and feet

:10:29.:10:39.
:10:39.:10:46.

and toes. -- line. A very good vault all round. Daniel Purvis

:10:46.:10:51.

scores 16 and that put CERN into third! In the words of the great

:10:51.:11:01.
:11:01.:11:05.

Japanese legend, go on, my son! -- that puts him into third. You have

:11:05.:11:10.

been waiting two hours to say that! You are like an excited little boy.

:11:10.:11:17.

I cannot believe you did not say it two years ago. He has been waiting

:11:17.:11:27.
:11:27.:11:27.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 41 seconds

:11:27.:12:25.

third after the last rotation. He got 14.6 in the team final. Cyril

:12:25.:12:35.
:12:35.:12:51.

has had ups and downs tonight, but so much energy on that vault. He

:12:51.:12:55.

really wrapped it round. He went to decide to compensate, which was a

:12:55.:13:05.
:13:05.:13:05.

pity. -- to the side. He went for a really difficult vault. The

:13:05.:13:09.

direction was good, but he lifted one shoulder a little bit more than

:13:09.:13:17.

the other. Eventually it went wrong, on the landing. These are such

:13:17.:13:22.

impressive vaults. They are just so high, they accelerate into the

:13:22.:13:29.

ceiling. He wraps his arms in tight and brings them out to control the

:13:29.:13:33.

landing but he did not bring the left arm out quickly enough to kill

:13:33.:13:43.
:13:43.:13:45.

the spin of the twist. 16.066. That little step to the side was a shame,

:13:45.:13:51.

but it is the bar of 16 and that will keep him ahead of Dan Purvis.

:13:51.:14:01.
:14:01.:14:25.

out. Not having a night to remember. The way he attacked the run was

:14:25.:14:31.

amazing. He just took it all up. You have to marry height and

:14:31.:14:38.

rotation. It was all up into the air. He did not get his heels over

:14:38.:14:46.

fast enough. It all went up, and there was not enough to take him to

:14:46.:14:50.

his feet. He landed with his shoulders behind his feet and there

:14:50.:14:54.

is nothing that you can do about that, really, however determined

:14:54.:15:04.
:15:04.:15:09.

that you are. That sparked is just not there. -- spark. 14.8. That is

:15:09.:15:19.
:15:19.:15:19.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 41 seconds

:15:19.:16:11.

champion on the parallel bars, twisting double. You don't get many

:16:11.:16:16.

of those to the pound. That's improved a lot since we last saw

:16:16.:16:20.

him on the world stage. But I don't think the content of the routine

:16:20.:16:26.

has improved that much. A little bit untidy, Mitch. That's a shame,

:16:26.:16:34.

because she a good parallel worker. There are too manyer overs here.

:16:34.:16:44.
:16:44.:16:44.

He's a -- There are too many errors here.

:16:44.:16:53.

And there is the dismount. Fabulous. Nguyen 15.2 for the European

:16:53.:17:03.
:17:03.:17:15.

parallel bars champion. He's up Uchimura is 1.942 ahead of his

:17:15.:17:20.

team-mate, Yamamuro. Daniel Purvis is in bronze medal

:17:20.:17:27.

position, ahead of Philipp Boy in fourth. The cushion is 0.034.

:17:27.:17:31.

Two pieces to go. Daniel Purvis in third. Can he hold on? We are

:17:31.:17:36.

thinking P bars, with the high bar to come. I think the best thing

:17:36.:17:42.

about Dan is he's a cool-headed guy. He doesn't buckle under the

:17:42.:17:46.

pressure, we saw that in qualification. And the routines, he

:17:46.:17:51.

is comfortable with. What we can hope is that someone else will make

:17:51.:17:56.

a mistake and Daniel will go through. What do you make of Kohei

:17:56.:18:00.

Uchimura? The atmosphere in this place is incredible. He must be

:18:00.:18:04.

under enormous pressure. He's doing fantastically well. He's got great

:18:04.:18:09.

expectations on him. Everyone looks at him as the top guy. We are in

:18:09.:18:14.

his back yard. He looks like it is a walk in the park for him. He

:18:14.:18:17.

makes gymnastics look easey. It is a joy to watch and he deserves to

:18:17.:18:22.

win. He's got the high bar last, which he fell off from in the team

:18:23.:18:29.

final. Do you think that will be on his mind? It will be preying on his

:18:29.:18:33.

mind somewhere, but when you are a top gymnast you have to wipe the

:18:33.:18:37.

slate clean in each competition. He's comfortable with his routines.

:18:37.:18:42.

He hasn't got the risk of making a mistake for the rest of the team.

:18:42.:18:46.

He's out for him. I think the bar will be a big piece, in terms of

:18:46.:18:50.

where Purvis will finish and the other guys. Do you think Dan will

:18:50.:18:57.

be able to remain calm? He must be excited now with two pieces to go,

:18:57.:19:04.

knowing he will be in with a chance. He will do his routines. We've got

:19:04.:19:10.

some big high bar routines before the final. If Dan can make the

:19:10.:19:14.

others nervous, something should happen. If he betters fifth place

:19:14.:19:19.

that will be something. He will be happy doing the six pieces clean. I

:19:19.:19:26.

wish him all the best. Thank you. Cheers.

Flavius Koczi from Romania. His the top of the handstand. That

:20:12.:20:21.

spoils the line. Three-and-a-half twists into a

:20:21.:20:26.

front somersault with another full twist. It is those hugely difficult

:20:26.:20:29.

moves, three-and-a-half twists, he will be the only person that

:20:29.:20:33.

performs that here. Linked to another full twist. That really

:20:34.:20:39.

gives him big, bonus scores. This will knock his star value

:20:39.:20:46.

right up but he has to land, just a triple twist. He has a little

:20:46.:20:51.

wrestle but that is very impressive. What more would you expect from the

:20:51.:21:01.
:21:01.:21:23.

his palms. If you are wondering what his pedigree on parallel bars

:21:23.:21:33.
:21:33.:21:33.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 41 seconds

:21:33.:22:14.

is like, he's got a bronze at the work. Look at the line! And that's

:22:14.:22:19.

the first time he skipped his feet back, but that was a wonderful

:22:19.:22:25.

performance. Goodness me! The pressure must be building.

:22:25.:22:32.

Wow! Surely... He's looking a bit stressed now. He's got the high bar

:22:32.:22:37.

to go. But the pleasure is evident. He didn't seem quite so thrilled

:22:37.:22:41.

with that performance as the others. He just had to work a little bit

:22:41.:22:48.

harder. The thing I like about him so much

:22:48.:22:54.

is he's got such wonderful rhythm to his work. Nothing looks strained.

:22:54.:22:59.

Look at the height of that dismount. Difficult work done well is

:22:59.:23:07.

unbeatable. 15.366 for Flavius Koczi. He's in

:23:07.:23:16.

the lead. But for how long? Uchimura's score hasn't come in yet.

:23:16.:23:24.

He has to be the finest all-around gymnast there's ever been, has to

:23:24.:23:30.

be. If he does three in a row it proves it. 15.56. A massive

:23:30.:23:37.

parallel bar score. One to go. He wasn't totally sure about that.

:23:37.:23:44.

The smile came when he saw the score. He wanted it confirmed by is

:23:44.:23:48.

the judges. Philipp Boy just behind Daniel Purvis.

:23:48.:23:58.
:23:58.:23:58.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 41 seconds

:23:58.:24:46.

disappointed with that, but the work on the apparatus was very good.

:24:46.:24:54.

This is the competition we are looking at, Boy versus Purvis.

:24:54.:25:04.
:25:04.:25:04.

competition. The pride of France. Very nice work there.

:25:52.:25:58.

Boy keeps checking that scoreboard. There's a tenth in it between him

:25:58.:26:02.

and Daniel Purvis. Dan is on P bars next.

:26:02.:26:12.
:26:12.:26:14.

It's a score of 14.566. Boy can't believe it. He scored in qualifying

:26:14.:26:24.
:26:24.:26:24.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 41 seconds

:26:24.:27:06.

15.133. Sorry, 15.233. That was he does that! He needed that. My

:27:06.:27:12.

word, to stay ahead of Philipp Boy he needs a score of 14.533. He's

:27:13.:27:19.

got to get that. He was so clean. There was a tiny hesitation when he

:27:19.:27:24.

did the little hop to the top, locking under in one of the semy,

:27:24.:27:34.
:27:34.:27:43.

to get the score. He needs every tenth he can get here, because Boy

:27:43.:27:50.

has a highly difficult routine on high bar. That's the first time

:27:50.:28:00.
:28:00.:28:01.

I've ever seen Daniel Purvis look pressurised. Purvis looking for

:28:01.:28:10.

14.533. And it's a 15.2! It's good news for

:28:11.:28:20.

Daniel Purvis. Just high bar to come.

Koji Yamamuro prepares to swing his back. He really did zip off the bar

:29:21.:29:31.
:29:31.:29:35.

there is. This is getting really exciting.

:29:35.:29:40.

He's got such a zippy energy about him. And we are so used to gymnasts

:29:40.:29:45.

really lifting off the bar. He lifted off the bar beautyly there

:29:45.:29:51.

for the straddle-front somersault. Lots of energy in that. But the

:29:51.:29:55.

dismount, he just sort of dropped off the parallel bars and descended

:29:55.:30:01.

to the floor. David Belyavskiy on the floor.

:30:01.:30:11.
:30:11.:30:32.

And the double-backed somersault. He really lift.

:30:32.:30:35.

The judges can deduct for lack of height. They certainly wouldn't

and-a-half marks behind his team- with that. He was in 7th after the

:32:49.:32:57.

last rotation. That should have gone out right in turn. This was

:32:57.:33:02.

the earlier move when he was loose. You can see the bent legs when he

:33:02.:33:06.

kicks. The move itself is very good, the full twist, but the catch was

:33:06.:33:12.

uncomfortable. The one and a half turn. He keeps his eyes on his

:33:12.:33:21.

hands. He just loses body form when he kicks into the dismount. The

:33:21.:33:25.

judges will deduct for that, even though it was a very high it

:33:25.:33:35.
:33:35.:33:45.

is growing! -- he is behind Daniel Purvis. David Belyavskiy is also

:33:45.:33:55.
:33:55.:33:59.

behind Dan Purvis. He is clinging recovery. He was a long way back

:34:52.:34:58.

Each move is meaningful. That is just what I mean. Straight into the

:34:58.:35:08.
:35:08.:35:32.

dismount. A good piece of apparatus difficult skill. And then a lovely

:35:32.:35:41.

double pike. Flying, clean, stylish routine. This is the last gymnast

:35:41.:35:47.

on parallel bars, and he scores 15.366. All of the gymnasts will

:35:47.:35:54.

now rotate to their last piece of apparatus. Kohei Uchimura has a

:35:54.:35:59.

score of 77.931 and is leading the field by over 2.5 marks. Koji

:35:59.:36:04.

Yamamuro, his team-mate, in second. Daniel Purvis from Great Britain

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 41 seconds

highest high bar score of the whole everything. That really is a

:38:08.:38:12.

challenge. Well done, Philipp Boy. He could not have done much more

:38:12.:38:18.

than he did. He fought his way through. He had some bad luck, but

:38:18.:38:23.

that was all about skill. He did not hold back for one minute. He

:38:23.:38:29.

really went for everything. Look at that fantastic body shape. Legs

:38:29.:38:32.

together in the full twist. Straight back somersault over the

:38:32.:38:39.

bar. Same move again with the legs tucked. Really impressive work. He

:38:39.:38:43.

went for 100%, knowing that was the only way he could possibly

:38:43.:38:48.

challenge for a medal, by giving it everything. He just showed us the

:38:48.:38:58.
:38:58.:39:08.

tough competitor that he is. There is a high five. It is 16.066!

:39:08.:39:12.

It is massive. He got himself silver at the last World

:39:12.:39:22.
:39:22.:39:42.

Championships. Dan Purvis has quite at the World Championships. -- to

:39:42.:39:52.
:39:52.:40:31.

really good job. Has he given away too much? That was a great

:40:31.:40:35.

performance from Dan Purvis. He could not have done any more. If it

:40:35.:40:40.

is not difficult enough, he just goes home and worked harder to make

:40:40.:40:44.

it more difficult. That was wonderful style. He did not hold

:40:44.:40:54.

back. He gave the routine every bit of determination. Wonderful

:40:54.:41:00.

pirouette skills. Linking them together. He lifts high, it super

:41:00.:41:05.

full twist in the double straight. What a competition from Daniel

:41:05.:41:15.
:41:15.:41:21.

Purvis. Will the judges be kind? Come on, come on, come on. They

:41:21.:41:31.
:41:31.:41:31.

have been very strict. It is not enough to stay ahead of Philipp Boy.

:41:31.:41:35.

14.8. He may not have shown the difficulty but he has certainly

:41:35.:41:40.

shown at the effort. Fantastic performance from Dan Purvis on all

:41:40.:41:50.
:41:50.:41:50.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 41 seconds

:41:50.:42:55.

that enough? Koji Yamamuro is happy. What a time he has had in this

:42:55.:43:02.

arena. Huge appreciation in the crowd. Philipp Boy, talk about

:43:02.:43:07.

saving the best till last. This young man can do more difficult

:43:07.:43:13.

work. He left out some. He is determined to get into those medals

:43:13.:43:23.
:43:23.:43:23.

on style. Playing it safe. Nice. He was late with their head. He did

:43:23.:43:32.

very well to catch up. -- with the head. One little hop backwards but

:43:32.:43:42.
:43:42.:43:42.

he played safe. Was that the right tactic? We will find out. Well!

:43:42.:43:48.

14.866. He has not gone ahead of Philipp Boy. You do have to say

:43:48.:43:52.

that the high bar routine that Philipp Boy it did was so full of

:43:52.:43:57.

difficulty and so exciting, that it really does deserve to be rewarded

:43:57.:44:04.

the way that it has been. Looking at the gymnasts to follow, there is

:44:05.:44:13.

nobody that can threaten that. Amazing performance from Philipp

:44:13.:44:23.
:44:23.:44:26.

Boy. He has come from that other apparatus to finish on. You are

:44:26.:44:36.
:44:36.:45:11.

well indeed. A very brave effort from David Belyavskiy. He's had a

:45:11.:45:14.

good competition. He's had a good Championships actually all in all.

:45:14.:45:21.

I think we are going to see a lot of this kid in the future.

:45:22.:45:26.

thoughts exactly. He would like it to be better. Although he's done

:45:26.:45:30.

his best, he would like to be up there fighting for the medals. I'm

:45:30.:45:34.

sure he will come back with the difficulty needed to do that next

:45:34.:45:44.
:45:44.:45:46.

year. Zips along the pommel horse. Strong technique. Just a little bit

:45:46.:45:56.
:45:56.:45:59.

wild there at the finish. He's one to watch, for sure.

:45:59.:46:09.
:46:09.:46:10.

He has youth on his side. What a job he's done, good gosh.

:46:10.:46:18.

It's terrific., "You can't come this way!" Well, that's Japan for

:46:18.:46:24.

you. Lovely people, but if your name's not down, you're not coming

:46:24.:46:32.

in. But rules are rules, Matt. Yamamuro I think is still quite

:46:32.:46:39.

dumbfounded by that. It didn't have the difficulty. He did play safe,

:46:39.:46:48.

and that's the gamble you take isn't it. Look at him.

:46:48.:46:51.

I bet Philipp Boy didn't think he was going to be in this position at

:46:51.:46:56.

the start of this competition, because he had an awful competition

:46:56.:47:06.
:47:06.:47:25.

so far. 14.733. A good pommel score qualifier. We could see some

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 41 seconds

:47:36.:48:17.

Danell Leyva take a nasty fall of double straight to finish. A big,

:48:17.:48:22.

big smile from a very impressive young man. Indeed. If only the

:48:22.:48:25.

first half of this competition would match the second half, he

:48:25.:48:30.

would be up in the medals. He would indeed. Very unassuming in his

:48:31.:48:39.

demeanor but his work is superb. A full twist in the Tkachev.

:48:40.:48:46.

Beautiful work. Two goes at getting his hand on but he was absolutely

:48:46.:48:56.
:48:56.:48:57.

firm. Really nice work. Full twist in the double. It is only a 6 -4,

:48:57.:49:07.
:49:07.:49:08.

6-5 difficult. Wait until he puts the hard stuff in.

:49:08.:49:16.

Can he get up into the top ten? So many of these gymnasts on the

:49:16.:49:26.
:49:26.:49:26.

floor are coached by former Soviets. 15.366. He's into fourth, behind

:49:26.:49:34.

Daniel Purvis. It's worth noting that Purvis is only 0.323 behind

:49:34.:49:44.
:49:44.:49:44.

Yamamuro. APPLAUSE Listen to the crowd. Kohei

:49:44.:49:50.

Uchimura is the highest on floor, the highest on pommel, on rings and

:49:50.:50:00.
:50:00.:50:27.

parallel bars. What has he got in Superb. Do not hold back, young man.

:50:27.:50:30.

Keep it going. You're the best in the world, just

:50:30.:50:36.

prove it now, go out with a real flourish.

:50:36.:50:42.

Superb work, this. A big wind-up. Go on. Yes! That was fantastic!

:50:42.:50:48.

What a routine and what a way to win the World Championship? He is a

:50:48.:50:56.

superstar. CHEERING AND APPLAUSE He could have

:50:56.:51:00.

played it safe. He wore his heart on his sleeve, and look at this

:51:00.:51:05.

place. Everyone is on their feet, including us. Come on, get up,

:51:05.:51:11.

Mitch. I can't stand after that. Absolutely unbelievable.

:51:11.:51:17.

What a champion's performance. Fantastic, and Matt is correct. The

:51:18.:51:23.

greatest gymnast we've ever seen. CHEERING That is wonderful to do

:51:23.:51:31.

that in front of this packed house. Come on, Matt. You've run out of

:51:31.:51:37.

words. I am gob smacked with that. We've watched him go around piece

:51:37.:51:41.

after piece and just look at the style and the grace which he works

:51:41.:51:46.

that bar. So good to see him do the whole

:51:46.:51:52.

routine. Not hold back. He only needed to score a 12 to win. He

:51:52.:51:58.

could have done just half a routine, but he went out with fantastic

:51:58.:52:04.

style. Really showing us the great champion he is. Just unbelievable.

:52:04.:52:10.

What a final landing. It is like he press as button somewhere. It is

:52:10.:52:20.
:52:20.:52:23.

15.7. It's by far enough and my word. It is remarkable. Philipp Boy

:52:23.:52:29.

is on the phone. Everybody's over the Moon.

:52:29.:52:37.

Boy oh boy what a performance from him. That is truly remarkable for

:52:37.:52:41.

Philipp Boy, whose Championship has been so dismal so far, but he

:52:42.:52:47.

turned it on at the right time. Thrilling. The men's all-around

:52:47.:52:54.

final, Kohei Uchimura absolutely world class.

:52:54.:52:59.

93.631. Philipp Boy takes silver for the

:53:00.:53:04.

second year running. Koji Yamamuro, bronze. Daniel Purvis settled

:53:04.:53:14.
:53:14.:53:29.

row, Kohei Uchimura. Yamamuro, bronze.

:53:30.:53:35.

This golden moment belongs to that man.

:53:35.:53:41.

Philipp Boy unsurprisingly is emotional. The medal was at his

:53:41.:53:44.

fingertips for the majority of his competition. He got his hands on it

:53:44.:53:54.
:53:54.:53:59.

for the national anthem of Japan. The representing country of Kohei

Championships, the men's all-around APPLAUSE

:55:10.:55:14.

A fourth place for Great Britain's Daniel Purvis. Dan, how are you

:55:14.:55:18.

feeling after that, man? feeling really good. I went out

:55:18.:55:22.

there and hit my routine. I'm really happy. Talk us through from

:55:22.:55:26.

the beginning? I was first up on floor. I was pretty shaky but I

:55:26.:55:32.

managed to do my routine. I was pleased with that. From there it

:55:32.:55:37.

went pretty good. He to keep my focus. It went more than pretty

:55:37.:55:40.

good, let's be honest. I don't think kite have asked for much

:55:40.:55:44.

better. It was a great feeling at the end. When you were feeling

:55:44.:55:50.

shaky on the floor, what did you do to keep calm? I tried to slow

:55:50.:55:57.

myself down. In my head I thought, keep yourself calm. And the pommel

:55:57.:56:02.

horse, you stayed on, that's the main goal. That's everyone's

:56:02.:56:07.

nemesis in gymnastics. To stay on, it was going in the right direction.

:56:07.:56:11.

How did you cope from the pressure of Uchimura's side of things? He

:56:11.:56:15.

was pretty impressive. Everybody here, the atmosphere was phenomenal.

:56:15.:56:21.

It was awesome. It's probably been the best competition I've been to

:56:21.:56:25.

atmosphere-wise. Uchimura is in a league of his own. Second or third,

:56:26.:56:31.

it was for the taking. I tried to hit my routines. I was hoping for a

:56:31.:56:38.

medal, but it wasn't far off. were things when moving from P bar

:56:38.:56:43.

to high bar. You knew Philipp Boy had the difficulty and was going to

:56:43.:56:48.

go for it? I've competed with Philipp Boy a few times. His

:56:48.:56:52.

routine, he either hits it or he doesn't. Fair play to him. I

:56:52.:56:55.

focused on my routine. It's a bittersweet feeling coming fourth

:56:55.:56:59.

but it is still great to be fourth in the world. You were fifth last

:56:59.:57:03.

year, fourth this year, what's happening they can year? I'm not

:57:03.:57:08.

sure. The Olympics coming up. The team is looking good. We are going

:57:08.:57:12.

to be training through Christmas for the test event. Be very good.

:57:12.:57:16.

You've got to take a massive amount of confidence from. This just for

:57:16.:57:20.

you, for the experience, going forward for 2012. It is great to be

:57:20.:57:25.

up there with the best. It is great, a dream come true. Thanks to my

:57:25.:57:30.

coach, Jeff Brookes, and the national coach. They've worked so

:57:30.:57:34.

hard. British gymnastics have been behind me as well. The leap from

:57:34.:57:38.

the juniors to the seniors, Mitch. I watched this young man in Glasgow.

:57:38.:57:43.

He had the better of Boy there, a great performance there, got over

:57:43.:57:46.

90 points in an international against France the other week. You

:57:46.:57:51.

are up from now. It is fantastic to see it. And to get almost 90 in

:57:51.:57:56.

this Arena tonight, how did you feel about that? It is an amazing

:57:56.:58:00.

performance. It is great. Anyone hitting 90 will be looking at the

:58:00.:58:09.

best in the world. And that's you! Yes. I'm made up. I think it will

:58:09.:58:14.

sink in tomorrow morning. Speaking of tomorrow morning we've got Louis

:58:14.:58:20.

Smith to talk about, another medal hope for the pommel horse final.

:58:20.:58:28.

Great Britain's Lewis Smith. This is so under control.

:58:28.:58:35.

Lovely confidence. Keep the rhythm, Lewis. This is

:58:35.:58:41.

fabulous. That is superb. You can see

highlights of that competition on BBC Two at 4730, but if you want to

join live commentary you can on- line and and the Red Button at 5.20.

Trust me, it is worth getting up for. Porridge and pommel horse, a

:58:58.:59:02.

great combination. In training he's been looking good. He is defending

:59:02.:59:07.

his silver medal. Do you reckon he will go for the hardest routine in

:59:07.:59:12.

competition? I think it will depend a lot on his warm-up. He will be

:59:12.:59:16.

exciting to watch. Mitch, your predictions? If he hits that full

:59:16.:59:20.

routine, a couple of handstands, staying longer on one handle, he

Matt Baker introduces action from the Men's All-Around final from the Gymnastics World Championships in Toyko. Great Britain's Daniel Keatings won a silver medal at the 2009 championships in London, but he is still building up to full fitness following the terrible knee injury that kept him out of top-class competition for over a year. As well as going for gold here, at the forefront of the gymnasts' minds will be qualification for the 2012 Olympics in London.
