Yes! He is on route to gold and the world record. You can't be serious.

:01:40.:01:47.

That ball was on the line. pride of Sheffield, the pride of

We have John McEnroe! And double gold medallist Daley

:02:16.:02:21.

If that wasn't enough for you, we have gold medal heptathlete Jessica

:02:21.:02:31.
:02:31.:02:36.

I think you've been trying to avoid the crowds. This is amazing. It is

:02:36.:02:41.

brilliant, I am overwhelmed by the support. I am enjoying this

:02:41.:02:46.

Olympics. We are going to go inside in a minute so we can speak

:02:46.:02:52.

properly, but this has been a wonderful event. Every event in the

:02:52.:02:57.

Olympics has been like this. The races, the triathlon has. It has

:02:58.:03:03.

been brilliant. These guys have really made it. This has been the

:03:03.:03:07.

best Olympics. John McEnroe, Your loving this. It is just like

:03:07.:03:14.

Wimbledon. Her I wish it was like Wimbledon! This is incredible. It

:03:14.:03:20.

will be like this until the end. have got more from you coming up.

:03:20.:03:25.

We have got swimming, taekwondo, boxing and dressage, but we will

:03:25.:03:32.

start with the men's 200m final. The young pretender, Yohan Blake,

:03:32.:03:38.

and the one and only Usain Bolt. The moment of truth has finally

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

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 52 seconds

:03:48.:04:40.

to. Offices and the event he started at. The event where he bows

:04:40.:04:45.

dump -- burst onto the scene as a junior at the age of 15, winning

:04:45.:04:51.

the World Championships. He has dominated the world of sprinting,

:04:51.:05:01.
:05:01.:05:01.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 52 seconds

:05:01.:05:58.

takes silver. -- gold all the way. He is unique. You can't argue that

:05:58.:06:02.

he has no equal. He is incomparable he has no equal. He is incomparable

:06:02.:06:07.

in the world of sprinting. You wanted to come here and cement

:06:07.:06:13.

your legend. Tell me what it means. This is what I wanted and I got it.

:06:13.:06:19.

I'm very proud of myself. I had a rough season, I came here and did

:06:19.:06:22.

what I had to do. Is it more special to celebrate with these

:06:22.:06:28.

guys? Without a doubt. My coach will be going crazy right now. We

:06:28.:06:34.

pushed each other. This is the end product. Let me ask you, this year

:06:34.:06:39.

has not been the easiest of build up. You said you were 95% fit, but

:06:39.:06:49.
:06:49.:06:50.

you have still been able to do this. Sum up what this means. It is hard.

:06:50.:06:54.

I am really dedicated to my work and I know what London meant to me.

:06:54.:07:03.

I am happy. You are a legend. Per and have set it better myself!

:07:03.:07:09.

The first man to defend his title, his fourth Olympic gold medal. No

:07:09.:07:19.
:07:19.:07:20.

Incredible. Running out of superlatives for him. Did you enjoy

:07:20.:07:26.

that? It was incredible. We thought you needed an adrenalin rush, you

:07:26.:07:31.

haven't done much recently! A bit of a low. Let's talk about Usain

:07:31.:07:37.

Bolt. The first double double. always said he wanted to be a

:07:37.:07:42.

legend and in order to do that he would have to do the double double.

:07:42.:07:47.

I guess the legend continues. He is still easily the best. He can

:07:47.:07:52.

continue to be so for as long as he wants. I suspect he will lack a

:07:52.:07:56.

little bit of motivation because he likes doing other things. Michael

:07:56.:08:00.

Johnson said yesterday that when he interviewed him recently, he asked

:08:00.:08:04.

him questions about when he knew it was time to retire. Michael said

:08:04.:08:08.

when you start winning buy less. He looked like he was pushed by Yohan

:08:08.:08:13.

Blake. There was an element of pressure coming into this. You know

:08:13.:08:17.

about living up to expectation. People were a little bit worried

:08:17.:08:22.

and not sure about his form. He dominated everything for so long

:08:22.:08:25.

but then what Blake, Lun Gong and challenging him. But he is

:08:25.:08:35.
:08:35.:08:36.

incredible. He is a true champion. Brilliant to watch. I think he held

:08:36.:08:41.

back. People were wondering if he was injured or if he had lost it. I

:08:41.:08:45.

don't think there was ever a doubt. He was gone. Nobody would catch him.

:08:45.:08:51.

He knew it, everybody knew it. The guide is magic. He lights up the

:08:51.:08:55.

crowd. He has such a huge personality, he is brilliant for

:08:55.:08:59.

the sport. It in the last few years, our sport would have sunk without a

:08:59.:09:05.

trace without him. Everybody owes him a debt of gratitude. He is the

:09:05.:09:10.

guide that is bringing the crowds back. It would have been a funny

:09:10.:09:13.

dilemma if the guy that everybody wanted to see was not the best

:09:13.:09:22.

guide. Compare him to 2008, 200m there, can you see any difference

:09:22.:09:28.

in his tiny? He looked more under pressure tonight. -- his technique.

:09:28.:09:35.

It blows me away watching him. It is incredible. It is not comparable

:09:35.:09:40.

to anybody else. I was in the box after the race and he is so much

:09:40.:09:46.

bigger than these guys. It seems like... We are talking about what

:09:47.:09:51.

will happen in the next four years, but he can get better. I think he

:09:51.:09:58.

will be in Rio. It you think so? can't afford not to be. For Blake,

:09:58.:10:03.

to live in his shadow, arguably he would be the best in the world if

:10:03.:10:07.

it wasn't for Bolt, he will be pushing him. And you have Warren

:10:07.:10:11.

Weir. If he was from the UK, we would all be talking about him.

:10:11.:10:15.

Both of those guys are two or three years younger. They have time on

:10:15.:10:22.

their hands. With plate, having beaten him in the Jamaica trials, I

:10:22.:10:26.

think he will want to assert himself over the next few years. I

:10:26.:10:30.

think it will be really fascinating. Let's listen to the Jamaican

:10:30.:10:40.
:10:40.:10:42.

Off they go. Blake was up very quickly. Bolt ahead of the field

:10:42.:10:48.

already. Usain Bolt comes off the turn in front. The big man is in

:10:48.:10:58.
:10:58.:10:58.

charge. Blake is coming fast. Usain Bolt wins again! Look at the time.

:10:58.:11:01.

19.32. Usain Bolt wins the sprint double for the second Olympics in a

:11:01.:11:06.

row. Is there are thrown in England big enough to hold this man? I

:11:06.:11:11.

think not. These are the scenes in Jamaica House tonight. Everyone is

:11:11.:11:19.

Jamaican tonight! Jess and I were looking at the crowd earlier and

:11:19.:11:25.

families. Everybody wants a piece of the action. In London, you got

:11:25.:11:29.

so many different countries that have communities here and the fact

:11:29.:11:34.

that there's so much yellow and green in the stadium tonight.

:11:34.:11:37.

Jamaica have dominated. It is a very proud moment for their country.

:11:37.:11:43.

It is brilliant to see. They have taken the one-two-three. It is

:11:43.:11:46.

incredible to watch and the support they had in the stadium was just

:11:46.:11:50.

like we had. They have made sprinting their national sport.

:11:50.:11:54.

They have, and they've been good at it for a few years. They have

:11:55.:11:59.

turned the corner. They always had people that were talented

:11:59.:12:03.

physically, but now these guys seem to have the mental toughness to go

:12:03.:12:07.

with their talent. What I like about these guys is the fact that

:12:08.:12:13.

they have the joy of life. When they are not participating, they

:12:13.:12:16.

are having a good time and they are letting people know they are having

:12:16.:12:21.

a good time. That makes them really attractive. Hopefully Bolt will be

:12:21.:12:28.

left alone to a tiny degree in his country. I have seen him talk

:12:28.:12:34.

publicly about being able to be himself. He is such a superstar. It

:12:34.:12:38.

is a country of 2.5 million people. It feels like they are dominating

:12:38.:12:44.

the Games. They have less than 10 medals and it feels like they are

:12:44.:12:49.

at the top of the table. It is the Blue Riband events they are taking.

:12:49.:12:54.

Everybody sees it around the world. They enjoy themselves. He manages

:12:54.:13:02.

to pull a face on the blocks or making gesticulation with his hands.

:13:02.:13:08.

The kids love it. Nobody came into these games with more expectation

:13:08.:13:14.

from asked Van Jessica Ennis. But boy, did she deliver. Jessica Ennis

:13:14.:13:24.

has got the potential to set the The fastest time ever by a

:13:24.:13:34.
:13:34.:13:34.

heptathlete! Come on! One step closer to the gold medal for

:13:34.:13:44.
:13:44.:13:54.

Jessica Ennis. Just get Ennis is Jessica Ennis is the Olympic

:13:54.:14:01.

champion. The best all-round athlete in the world. What do you

:14:01.:14:05.

feel like when you see that? Be it is such a great feeling, I can't

:14:05.:14:11.

describe it. It is just really emotional. Just being there for

:14:11.:14:15.

those two days and for it to come together the way it did and now to

:14:15.:14:19.

be sat here, all of that pressure off my shoulders, with my medal and

:14:19.:14:24.

I can just enjoy every moment. have stayed for you, give them away

:14:24.:14:33.

for! They are brilliant. Everywhere you go, this is what it will be

:14:33.:14:38.

like. People just want to have a piece of you and talk to you and

:14:38.:14:42.

congratulate you and thank you. I've got a permanent smile on my

:14:42.:14:49.

face. My jaws are aching! Everyone has a buzz around the stadium. They

:14:49.:14:53.

are enjoying every minute of the Olympics. It is great to see how

:14:53.:14:58.

everyone has got behind all of us. It is just a brilliant feeling.

:14:58.:15:08.
:15:08.:15:10.

I've never managed to cope with it, but she is down to earth and has

:15:10.:15:14.

not spent her time in glamourous places, and when she's not spending

:15:14.:15:18.

her time in the chauffeur-driven limousines, she is very down-to-

:15:19.:15:24.

earth. When you came off the final straight, what was going through

:15:24.:15:33.

your mind? I was a little bit behind the two girls, and I thought

:15:33.:15:38.

this was my last big moment, something less in my legs -- left

:15:38.:15:42.

to my legs, and the last time I was beaten by her, so I was going to

:15:42.:15:48.

make sure I crossed the line first and finished with a victory.

:15:48.:15:51.

were such a crowd-pleaser at that moment, in more ways than one.

:15:51.:15:55.

There is a picture of you with the arms in your air, and you can feel

:15:55.:16:03.

the relief when you see that. see to within my Tennis Halle, Andy

:16:03.:16:07.

Murray at Wimbledon, so I imagine it was up by 10 times, because that

:16:07.:16:11.

is a lot different than Wimbledon. I congratulate you with being able

:16:11.:16:15.

to handle the pressure. Please get a little sleep. Have a wonderful

:16:15.:16:23.

vacation. Any plans to be in another event? For me, this year,

:16:23.:16:28.

I'm going to rest and recover and enjoy it for a bit. The then it is

:16:28.:16:32.

the World Championships in Moscow, so that is what I will aim for.

:16:32.:16:35.

were discussing your future last night. Michael Johnson and Denise

:16:35.:16:40.

Lewis were discussing your potential over the hurdles, and

:16:40.:16:44.

whether you might want to concentrate on just one event. The

:16:44.:16:51.

toll on your body, obviously, is so great as a malty event athlete. Is

:16:51.:16:57.

that something you are thinking about? -- multi- event. My mind is

:16:57.:17:01.

all over the place, but I feel like I want to carry on with the

:17:01.:17:07.

heptathlon and think if I can get to the 7,000. Mark. But eventually

:17:07.:17:10.

your body will say it has had enough and you pick up more

:17:10.:17:16.

injuries, but after that I would love to give the hurdles a real go.

:17:16.:17:20.

It is a band of brothers, you people doing all the events, the

:17:20.:17:23.

girls and the guys, you walk together, and I think we should

:17:23.:17:30.

remind ourselves of the great thing -- things you did, Daley Thompson.

:17:30.:17:40.
:17:40.:17:42.

Daley Thompson with a remarkable start. He is miles ahead it. Look

:17:42.:17:52.
:17:52.:18:04.

at the clock! Coming down nicely, It is another fine, fine start. The

:18:04.:18:09.

master is clear! Daley Thompson, the greatest all-round athlete in

:18:09.:18:18.

Daley Thompson was busy persuading her she should forget the

:18:18.:18:24.

heptathlon and not leave it. think there is unfinished business.

:18:24.:18:33.

If you are in fantastic shape on your first day... You're not too

:18:33.:18:43.

chubby. A banks, daily. The next two events, average for you. Don't

:18:43.:18:49.

get negative! She won the gold. know, but there is more. It is

:18:49.:18:56.

different in tennis, John. You are never looking for perfection.

:18:56.:19:00.

was great was seeing how much use to light up the crowd and you look

:19:00.:19:05.

like every event, every one of the 10 events, you were smiling. Even

:19:05.:19:11.

in the 1,500 metres you managed it. That was my happy place, being in a

:19:11.:19:15.

big competition, that was my happy place. That is where I enjoyed

:19:15.:19:20.

being. The training is hard and sometimes it's a bit miserable, but

:19:20.:19:25.

for me, if I couldn't be happy there, it wouldn't have been worth

:19:25.:19:30.

doing. What was the biggest challenge for you in the last six

:19:30.:19:33.

months? Signor face everywhere, becoming the pin-up girl of the

:19:33.:19:37.

Games, did he get to a point where you thought, they all want me to

:19:37.:19:42.

win this and I am feeling it? definitely felt it. I tried to

:19:42.:19:46.

block it out as much as I could. I was privileged to be in that

:19:46.:19:50.

position, more than anything, not being part of the last Olympics, so

:19:50.:19:55.

a great position for me. More than anything it was the training. The

:19:55.:19:58.

hard training, sitting in the gym, doing the running session and I

:19:58.:20:02.

wondered why I was doing it. Because you can be the greatest

:20:02.:20:07.

shape ever and then it comes to the Olympics and things go wrong. I was

:20:07.:20:13.

just really anxious about it. much as everybody wanted you to be

:20:13.:20:17.

in Beijing, to be in front of your home crowd and have that reception,

:20:17.:20:21.

especially on the first morning, so many people said it there we have

:20:21.:20:26.

seen so many Olympics where it is how boring in the morning session,

:20:26.:20:32.

but your first day was beautiful. That is what I expected, a few

:20:32.:20:37.

empty seats, because it was early, but to step out there and see a

:20:37.:20:43.

full stadium and the cheering was just amazing. And you have a lovely

:20:43.:20:47.

wedding to plan as well. He s, I have some things to do, fun things,

:20:47.:20:52.

and I can have a break, dress shopping, flower arranging, I love

:20:52.:21:00.

all that! Daley Thompson's face glazed over. John has had a few of

:21:00.:21:05.

those, to be fair. The second one was better, but good luck with the

:21:05.:21:12.

Jade Jones was fighting in the tae kwon do, and what a day the 19-

:21:13.:21:22.

J Jones, British Olympian, and an emphatic winner in the first round,

:21:22.:21:27.

and she has sprinted into the tae kwon do quarter finals. Wales is

:21:27.:21:33.

finding itself a pocket-sized battling heroin. She is into the

:21:33.:21:39.

Olympic semi-finals. Jade Jones is an Olympic finalist! And if there

:21:39.:21:42.

has been a fine a moment in the history of tae kwon do in this

:21:42.:21:49.

country, none of us have ever seen it. Jade Jones won three fights

:21:49.:21:53.

through the day, and the 19-year- old was going for goal at The Excel

:21:53.:21:57.

Arena tonight. She was up against the Chinese world champion and we

:21:57.:22:07.
:22:07.:22:08.

will join it at the start of the The final round of the Olympic

:22:08.:22:13.

final, the final two minutes. Just two minutes standing between Jade

:22:13.:22:21.

Jones, and you know what. She is up against one of the sports deadliest

:22:21.:22:31.
:22:31.:22:37.

exponents. Jade Jones in the blue, Attacking back kicks, but she looks

:22:37.:22:47.
:22:47.:22:48.

weary in her legs, the Chinese. That young lady is giving her a

:22:48.:22:53.

head full of problems at the moment. The database running in the

:22:53.:22:58.

background, subconsciously, they have to choose what distance to

:22:58.:23:01.

throw at, when to do it, how to do it, but it is all about Jones at

:23:01.:23:08.

the moment. Two points is not a lot at this stage. Another caution

:23:08.:23:13.

against the Chinese for the pushing and that could be costly. Jade

:23:13.:23:17.

Jones has got one against her, so she cannot hang back. The Chinese

:23:17.:23:27.

was looking, but Jones has scored again. 3-0! The Chinese athlete

:23:27.:23:35.

takes it, and that helps Jones even more. 4-0. Not time to start

:23:35.:23:38.

believing, because tae kwon do has caused can rattle up in the blink

:23:39.:23:43.

of an eye but we are into the final minute and James Joe -- Jade Jones

:23:43.:23:48.

is on the brink of something special. She has conceded a point

:23:48.:23:52.

penalty, so the lead is back to just three, but she is within reach

:23:52.:23:59.

of a head shot, but not any more. Four points clear! Point by point,

:23:59.:24:05.

that gold is getting closer and closer. Paul Green can barely

:24:05.:24:09.

contain himself. As I suspect few of you back home it will be able to

:24:09.:24:18.

do. Who thought she could get sowing -- excited about tae kwon

:24:18.:24:22.

do? That is the beauty of sport and the beauty of the Games. That is

:24:22.:24:28.

the gift of the game's from tae kwon do. It is all about Jade Jones,

:24:28.:24:32.

in a dominant form. She picks up another point and she is on the

:24:32.:24:38.

cast. It has been brought back to four. Very quickly. But she is on

:24:38.:24:42.

the cusp. Never has a British tae kwon do player been able to call

:24:42.:24:46.

themselves Olympic champion. The countdown will begin. She has to be

:24:46.:24:53.

careful. Three points will concede the gold medal and she's just two

:24:53.:25:03.
:25:03.:25:06.

points ahead now. Keep an eye on You little beauty! And the teenage

:25:07.:25:10.

keeking superstars -- superstar from North Wales is the Olympic

:25:10.:25:18.

Jade Jones the first ever Olympic tae kwon do champion for Team GB,

:25:18.:25:23.

how does that feel? It is crazy. I have dreamt about it for ages and

:25:23.:25:30.

it is amazing. The crowd have been just amazing. You have won a Youth

:25:30.:25:33.

Olympic gold medal, but how does this compare? That was special at

:25:33.:25:40.

the time because I was only a junior, but this is crazy. How have

:25:40.:25:44.

you remained calm? He won 19 years old, in front of an incredible

:25:44.:25:50.

crowd, and delivered a incredible performance. My coach, Paul Green,

:25:51.:25:55.

he is a legend. I wouldn't have been mean with at -- near without

:25:55.:26:05.
:26:05.:26:07.

Jade Jones getting her gold medal today. 19 years old, our first ever

:26:07.:26:12.

Olympic gold medallist in tae kwon do. And what an incredible feeling

:26:13.:26:17.

that must be. What is it like when it goes round your neck? It is the

:26:17.:26:20.

best feeling in the world, especially when the crowd is there

:26:20.:26:26.

and you hear the national anthem, it's a brilliant feeling. Well,

:26:27.:26:36.
:26:37.:27:15.

The this is the scene at now, and there is Jade Jones, doing the

:27:15.:27:20.

classic biking of the gold medal. I am sure you did a few of those.

:27:20.:27:24.

don't remember trying to bite one, but I do have a nice little

:27:24.:27:31.

collection. Rafael Nadal lights -- likes to bite the Cup, so he

:27:31.:27:35.

probably did that in 2008 when he won the gold. I'm not quite sure

:27:35.:27:40.

why people do that. Is it an instinctive reaction? They have

:27:40.:27:49.

seen people, so they do it again. Did you fall for it, Jessica?

:27:49.:27:57.

An amateur mistake. She won't do it next time. What a day. She started

:27:57.:28:02.

at 10:30am, and Imry end at 11pm, or even a few minutes after -- it

:28:02.:28:06.

might end. It is like when you do so many events, you have to keep

:28:06.:28:11.

building up. It is a long day and the adrenalin is pumping and you

:28:11.:28:15.

are nervous and anxious. You're on a massive roller-coaster, down for

:28:15.:28:23.

those hours, then up for those days. You know what this means, folks. We

:28:23.:28:27.

had none of the yesterday, but now we can have a little blast of

:28:27.:28:37.
:28:37.:28:38.

Spandau Ballet! Yes,, you can move the arrow. 23 goals, John. More

:28:38.:28:48.
:28:48.:28:54.

Will we get to 35? I doubt we will get to 35. Don't be a pessimist.

:28:54.:28:59.

But there's not many days left. They will have to be events we have

:28:59.:29:06.

never previously won or even entered in the categories? He John

:29:06.:29:10.

turned up for the 100, they would have given a house. There was a

:29:10.:29:16.

feeling that we had come to expect the success in his games, and we

:29:16.:29:20.

were reminded of a few Olympics ago where we weren't quite so dominant

:29:20.:29:25.

in many sports, but it is a good feeling. I think the British have a

:29:25.:29:31.

problem with success. First of all we started with the fact that we

:29:31.:29:34.

were worried we would not win anything, now we are worried we are

:29:34.:29:40.

winning too much. Let's enjoy it the right and see what comes.

:29:40.:29:46.

Jones enjoying it, being grabbed, and hopefully exported over to

:29:46.:29:52.

being to start an interview. Daley Thompson hit the nail on the head.

:29:52.:29:56.

They were a couple of days where it was a bit bitchy. That is just down

:29:56.:30:01.

to the timetable and the good events -- a bit itchy. Let's hear

:30:01.:30:10.

Talk to me about the experience on the podium. It was amazing, I sang

:30:10.:30:16.

the national anthem. The best moment in my life. Take a look at

:30:16.:30:19.

it and talk it -- talk me through what it means. Be it is crazy, I

:30:19.:30:24.

have seen pictures, I have watched people getting this week and I

:30:24.:30:28.

wanted one so badly. To finally have it around my neck, I still

:30:28.:30:31.

don't believe it. Have you been inspired by the British

:30:31.:30:37.

performances this week? 100%. Britain has done amazing. Everyone

:30:37.:30:43.

has made me think I want that. To become the first ever one to do it

:30:43.:30:48.

in taekwondo is the cherry on the cake. Can you believe it when you

:30:48.:30:55.

look at the crowd and the response. It is amazing, taekwondo is such a

:30:55.:30:58.

low-key sport. Hopefully this will increase the profile. The

:30:58.:31:04.

supporters just amazing. People will expect it in Rio now. Yeah! I

:31:04.:31:08.

will have a bit of time off first and get mentally sorted and bring

:31:08.:31:16.

on Rio. Showed the people you're medal. Congratulations. Can I say a

:31:16.:31:20.

big thank you to my coach, without him I would be nowhere near where I

:31:20.:31:24.

am today. He is a legend and he pushed me so hard. Some days you

:31:24.:31:31.

are tired and you're crying, he has dealt with all sorts. He is amazing.

:31:31.:31:39.

And also Brian Green, his dad. He is a legend as well. Well done.

:31:39.:31:43.

A flash of recognition across your face. Crying and moaning, shouting

:31:43.:31:53.
:31:53.:31:54.

or coaches. All of those emotions! My coaches normally crying. Maybe

:31:54.:31:57.

the Iain Teaz view it gave away a couple of things that might be

:31:57.:32:03.

coming up later in the show. Martin stamper was also in action,

:32:03.:32:06.

fighting in the under 68 kg category and rose to the occasion

:32:06.:32:13.

and enjoyed great success. He got through to the semi-finals. He came

:32:13.:32:17.

up against the top speed and with a succession of spinning kicks,

:32:17.:32:23.

pushed him all the way, but sadly lost 9-6. It meant Martin went into

:32:23.:32:31.

the contest with -- for the bronze. In a tight and tense about, Martyn

:32:31.:32:41.
:32:41.:32:44.

We are going to go to boxing next. The first women's final. We will

:32:44.:32:48.

concentrate on a good Yorkshire girl who packs as much of a punch

:32:48.:32:51.

as our jess. Nicola Adams, the Leeds-born

:32:51.:32:55.

flyweight, is the last over of three girls standing and is one win

:32:55.:33:00.

away from gold. Whatever happened today, she would get a guaranteed

:33:00.:33:05.

silver. She beat Mary, yesterday in the semi-final and today faces

:33:05.:33:11.

Cancan of China, who has beaten her in that last two world finals, the

:33:11.:33:19.

last of those in May. She was looking to take the lead role today

:33:19.:33:22.

and win the first gold to be handed and win the first gold to be handed

:33:22.:33:27.

out for boxing in the Olympic Games to women. She started in fire and -

:33:27.:33:31.

- fine style and won the first round. The crowd were right behind

:33:31.:33:34.

her. She started the second on the front foot and that is where we

:33:34.:33:42.

will joint it. -- join it. Into the second round in this

:33:42.:33:47.

women's 51 kg for Olympic flyweight final between the No. 1 and No.2

:33:47.:33:51.

seeds in the tournament. This is a rematch of the World Championship

:33:51.:34:01.
:34:01.:34:03.

final from last year. Nicola Adams has come out blazing. We saw three

:34:03.:34:12.

phases of attack. Amazing boxing by Adams. Cancan is struggling to

:34:12.:34:16.

workout this speed and these combinations. A beautiful left jab

:34:16.:34:21.

from Adams and the decibel level rises at the ExCeL Arena in

:34:21.:34:25.

London's Docklands. It has been a sell-out crowd for every session of

:34:25.:34:35.
:34:35.:34:36.

boxing. An historic day, the first time that women are competing in

:34:36.:34:41.

the Olympic Games for a gold medal. What a stunning right cross from

:34:41.:34:45.

Nicola Adams! Driving Cancan back towards the ropes. What an amazing

:34:45.:34:50.

shot. If that hasn't caught the eyes of the judges, I don't know

:34:50.:34:57.

what will. Amazing shot! Cancan is on the canvas. A legitimate knock-

:34:57.:35:03.

down, the count will be issued. It is only one point in Olympic boxing.

:35:03.:35:07.

As we approached the closing 30 seconds, the momentum is in favour

:35:07.:35:12.

of Nicola Adams. She is in the ascendancy. You suspect that at the

:35:12.:35:17.

close of this round, Cancan, the reigning world champion and world

:35:17.:35:21.

number one, is going to have a significant deficit to try to claw

:35:21.:35:27.

back. Adams is content to box on the back foot and use that sublime

:35:27.:35:36.

footwork that we all know she She can't afford to get as excited

:35:36.:35:41.

as we are. She has to keep her discipline and keep her hands high.

:35:41.:35:49.

This is a brilliant performance by Adams. She needs to keep it up.

:35:49.:35:53.

end to the second round. Nicola Adams has extended her advantage.

:35:53.:36:01.

It now stands at five. 9-4 after two rounds of boxing. Fan knocked

:36:01.:36:05.

down but Nicola well in control. She won the third round and

:36:05.:36:10.

continued to impress. Going into the fourth and final round, she was

:36:10.:36:20.
:36:20.:36:22.

As we move into the fourth and final round of this women's 51 kg

:36:22.:36:32.

flyweight final. Only two minutes of boxing stand between Nicola

:36:32.:36:37.

Adams and Olympic immortality. She is leading the reigning and three-

:36:37.:36:47.
:36:47.:36:50.

time World Championship gold Unless Cancan can produce a punch

:36:50.:36:54.

to bring about to finish and but Adams on the canvas and keep her

:36:54.:36:58.

there for 10 seconds, one suspects that Nicola Adams is on her way to

:36:58.:37:04.

Olympic gold. Concentration will be absolutely crucial. She doesn't

:37:04.:37:11.

want to let the occasion get to her. She will have to stay in the moment.

:37:11.:37:16.

She will not want to be thinking about the outcome. Her focus will

:37:16.:37:22.

remain on the task at hand. This is absolutely admirable discipline.

:37:22.:37:26.

She knows she has a comfortable lead, but she still maintains a

:37:26.:37:31.

very tight guard. She is picking her shots. Another tremendous right

:37:31.:37:37.

hand as she moves forward. She is not being complacent. She knows

:37:37.:37:43.

that Cancan is a danger until the last bell. Nicola Adams began

:37:43.:37:50.

boxing at the age of 12. She struggled to find opponents. Her

:37:50.:37:55.

mum took her down to an after- school club in Leeds. Nicola was

:37:55.:37:59.

running around and Dunn done it to her mother, she got inside a boxing

:37:59.:38:05.

ring and tried it out. It was there that her talent was first

:38:05.:38:09.

discovered. She is now on the cusp of claiming the first ever women's

:38:09.:38:14.

Olympic boxing gold medal. Just seconds away. The crowd begin to

:38:15.:38:24.
:38:25.:38:25.

count it down by clapping their hands and stomping their feet. As

:38:25.:38:29.

the closing bell sounds, Nicola Adams produces a fast fisted flurry

:38:29.:38:38.

just underline her superiority. Now the celebrations begin in earnest

:38:38.:38:43.

because there's no doubt in that blue corner, in the Great Britain

:38:43.:38:48.

corner, that Nicola Adams has just made history. Ladies and

:38:48.:38:58.
:38:58.:38:58.

gentlemen... The winner by a score of 16 points to seven, and Olympic

:38:58.:39:04.

champion, in the blue corner, representing Great Britain, Nicola

:39:04.:39:12.

Adams! Nicola Adams of Great Britain has just made sporting

:39:12.:39:18.

history. She is the first Olympic boxing champion in history in the

:39:18.:39:24.

women's tournament. Nicola Adams is the Olympic champion. It is like a

:39:24.:39:29.

dream come true. I have wanted this all my life. To have finally done

:39:29.:39:34.

it, I'm finally here, with all of this support, it has really made my

:39:34.:39:39.

day. I would like to thank all of the supporters here, all of the

:39:39.:39:44.

supporters back home. I am bringing that gold medal back to Leeds.

:39:44.:39:47.

Surely you will get that medal, what will it be like?

:39:47.:39:54.

absolutely amazing. To have a flag lifted, I can't wait. I'm so happy

:39:54.:40:02.

and overwhelmed. Well done. Gold medallist and Olympic champion,

:40:02.:40:12.
:40:12.:40:16.

Nicola Adams can barely contain her joy as she makes history by

:40:16.:40:23.

becoming the first women's Olympic boxing champion. What better place

:40:23.:40:31.

to do it than before her home crowd in London at the Games of the 30th

:40:31.:40:36.

Olympiad. STUDIO: Another Yorkshire girl.

:40:36.:40:41.

is incredible. She is such a lovely girl. She trains really hard in

:40:41.:40:45.

Sheffield so it is great to see her do well. She has spent a lot of

:40:45.:40:50.

time in Sheffield. A lot of people want to own a little bit of fur.

:40:50.:40:55.

What she will do for women's boxing will be fantastic. It has been a

:40:55.:40:59.

big success and some people were sceptical. Because? They didn't

:40:59.:41:02.

know whether or not women should be on the programme, the boxing

:41:03.:41:09.

programme. Why not? I would not like to fight her! Technically the

:41:09.:41:13.

women have proven how good they are. You were there today. In it was

:41:13.:41:17.

awesome. There were three great fights, I will not discuss what

:41:17.:41:22.

happened after this. She beat her up, the Chinese girl, the number

:41:22.:41:27.

one. For the other people she should possibly think of the Irish

:41:27.:41:31.

fans because the place was at least three-quarters full of Irish men

:41:31.:41:36.

and women. Along with maybe a quarter Britain. Hopefully you guys

:41:36.:41:41.

are getting along quite well right now. Just fine. You quite liked the

:41:41.:41:46.

women's boxing, I understand. not? We are one of the fuse sports,

:41:46.:41:51.

in tennis, that has equal prize money. That sets a great example.

:41:51.:41:56.

I'm assuming that in the next Olympics, you will have even more

:41:56.:41:59.

divisions for women and you will see bigger and better things and

:41:59.:42:05.

hopefully the women boxers... She is a star. There's a potential to

:42:05.:42:08.

turn professional because in America there's a professional

:42:08.:42:13.

circuit. She might want to keep on the Olympics until Rio. How well

:42:13.:42:18.

her life changed? A lot. Experiencing the past few days

:42:18.:42:23.

after competing, it is madness. She will enjoy every minute of it. It

:42:23.:42:25.

will be great for her to get back home and see her family and

:42:25.:42:29.

celebrate. I'm sure you would like to see this. We did a Yorkshire

:42:29.:42:37.

table the other day and it has improved. If Yorkshire were a

:42:37.:42:41.

nation, and I say this with a little bit of interest as a

:42:41.:42:43.

little bit of interest as a Yorkshire girl, Yorkshire would be

:42:43.:42:49.

11th. A few people today have told me that perhaps Gloucestershire,

:42:49.:42:53.

because they have done very well in equestrian, should also have a

:42:53.:42:56.

table. We can't do it for every region, but there must be something

:42:56.:43:00.

region, but there must be something in the water. Pudding! Quite

:43:00.:43:05.

possibly. I'm very happy with that statistic because I'm working for

:43:05.:43:10.

on Australian Channel nine. Every day I go in and see 400 very, very

:43:10.:43:19.

sad Aussies. I pulled up this statistic the other day about them

:43:19.:43:21.

being behind the sporting powerhouse of Yorkshire and they

:43:22.:43:26.

are very upset. But they are taking it gracefully, for once. At really?

:43:26.:43:31.

Let's do one more of these. It is your turn to go up and move the

:43:31.:43:37.

arrow. And no problem. Nicola Adams's gold medal takes us to a

:43:37.:43:42.

total of 24 gold medals. The record was 19 from Beijing. We passed that

:43:42.:43:47.

a while ago. 24 today. If you had to make a prediction now, what

:43:47.:43:56.

would you say? I think we will go up to 28. OK. Come back and join us.

:43:56.:44:00.

Thank you is so much for coming in. You are massively in demand and

:44:00.:44:05.

having some of your time has been wonderful. Gold fingernails.

:44:06.:44:08.

thought you are going to say have you noticed how tightly she is

:44:08.:44:12.

gripping the medal! Tell us what you are saying about the

:44:12.:44:17.

fingernails. I literally did not want to have anything gold before

:44:17.:44:21.

these games. I didn't want to pay my nails gold, but now I can relax

:44:21.:44:27.

and enjoy it. Give us a close-up. You can wear those for at least the

:44:27.:44:33.

next four years. Tel Rolette to send that bright colour watch! --

:44:33.:44:38.

Rolette. A gold wedding dress, anything! Could like with ever

:44:38.:44:43.

think and enjoy your time off. Staying with the Queens of the ring,

:44:43.:44:47.

Ireland's Katie Taylor had the expectations of a whole country on

:44:47.:44:51.

her shoulders. She is their big gold medal hope of the Games and

:44:51.:44:54.

after qualifying for today's lightweight final, she was also

:44:54.:45:00.

favourite to win gold. Among the gathering green army desperate she

:45:00.:45:05.

would win was Dara O'Briain, a resident of the same town Katie

:45:05.:45:15.
:45:15.:45:15.

hails from. This is his special and There is a saying in Irish, that

:45:15.:45:19.

which is rare is wonderful, and four Olympic medals, that tends to

:45:19.:45:25.

apply. But not this year. In the general gold rush of Team GB,

:45:25.:45:29.

Ireland is about to win five this year, which is the greatest we have

:45:29.:45:34.

every down, tying with 1956 in Melbourne. Even more rare and

:45:34.:45:40.

beautiful than that, is it lies in the hands of a genuine world-class

:45:40.:45:50.
:45:50.:46:03.

For the last four years, Katie Taylor has been a her world

:46:03.:46:06.

champion in the weight division, but she is widely regarded as the

:46:06.:46:10.

best pound-for-pound boxer in the sport. Women's boxing is a new

:46:10.:46:14.

sport, with the first Olympics, and in need somebody good as Katie

:46:14.:46:19.

Taylor to establish it. Katie is from the same small town from where

:46:19.:46:25.

I'm from, so she's not only fighting for Ireland, she is

:46:25.:46:29.

fighting for County Wicklow, but she is also fighting for the future

:46:29.:46:33.

of the sport. So if you are wearing green, this is the hottest ticket

:46:33.:46:39.

in the Olympics. Joining me it is noted, the flyweight, Ed Byrne.

:46:39.:46:46.

Have you been following the boxing? Religiously. Why are the weaknesses

:46:46.:46:49.

of the woman Katie Taylor is fighting today? A I would say it

:46:49.:46:54.

would be her face. By that will be proven to be a weak point. Luckily

:46:54.:47:02.

the padding will save her. I am not saying this out of the position of

:47:02.:47:12.
:47:12.:47:24.

superiority,, but she is winning it. Come on, there you go. Thanks for

:47:24.:47:29.

coming along. Now the women's 60 kilogram lightweight final in the

:47:29.:47:36.

boxing tournament is under way. Katie Taylor, wearing red, with the

:47:36.:47:40.

orthodox stance, when she takes to the boxing ring to demonstrate her

:47:40.:47:50.

vast array of skills, the entire nation comes to a standstill.

:47:50.:48:00.
:48:00.:48:01.

the combination in! Break it up, Very tight. The at was any bodies

:48:01.:48:11.
:48:11.:48:22.

Come on, Katie! The good left hand from Ochigava or was followed by

:48:22.:48:27.

Katie Taylor's impersonation of the Ali shuffle. As we stand here on

:48:27.:48:32.

this historic women's Olympic boxing finals, how many youngsters

:48:32.:48:42.
:48:42.:48:45.

will take inspiration from these And for the first time in the

:48:45.:48:49.

course of the Olympic tournament, the No. 1 seed, Katie Taylor, is

:48:49.:48:59.

trailing. One punch down. What a cracking right cross. Following a

:48:59.:49:09.
:49:09.:49:09.

blazing left jab. Come on! Come on! A cracking combination again.

:49:09.:49:14.

in stronger now, certainly. He much better by Taylor. In and out

:49:14.:49:18.

without getting caught on the counter. This is her boxing, this

:49:18.:49:23.

is where she is at home. And this is what she needs to do to overcome

:49:23.:49:32.

Archie gave or -- Ochigava and her account of boxing style. -- account

:49:32.:49:38.

of boxing style. Yes! Look at the reaction of the Irish fans in

:49:38.:49:46.

attendance. And what that signify is as well. Two more minutes,

:49:46.:49:56.
:49:56.:49:57.

Katie! Come on! Jesus, the place erupted. I cannot call it. As we

:49:57.:50:01.

begin the 4th and final round. The tactics will change from Ochigava,

:50:01.:50:05.

because she will have to take the contest from Taylor, but her

:50:05.:50:10.

schoolwork is sublime. Staying out of harm's way but she will have to

:50:10.:50:17.

concentrate on her own boxing. Katie needs to remain concentrated,

:50:17.:50:22.

but she catches Ochigava or with a flying left hook. Slightly off-

:50:22.:50:26.

balance. Managing to hold the clinch. By think the Russian has

:50:26.:50:33.

have the best of this round. Come on, Katie! She needs to do

:50:33.:50:40.

something in this final 30 seconds. And not that. The crowd are

:50:40.:50:47.

counting down the final seconds. And that the final bell, Katie

:50:47.:50:51.

Taylor beats her chest in celebration and receives a hard of

:50:51.:50:56.

congratulations from her coaching team. Jesus, this could go either

:50:56.:51:03.

way. Ladies and gentlemen, the winner by a score of 10-9, and the

:51:03.:51:13.
:51:13.:51:19.

Olympic champion, in the red corner, Yes! She has just been crowned the

:51:19.:51:26.

Olympic champion. The culmination of a lifetime of work and the fans

:51:26.:51:36.

on hand at The Excel Arena are in Russia. K T Taylor! Are in rapture.

:51:36.:51:46.
:51:46.:52:03.

Brilliant stuff. You were there, soaking it up, digging down into

:52:03.:52:09.

your Irish roots. Definitely. I felt part Irish and half of the

:52:09.:52:14.

country were there. Unbelievable support for Katie Taylor, Barry

:52:14.:52:20.

Maginn there, and the crowd was totally in to it. -- Barry McGuigan.

:52:20.:52:23.

That was an extremely close fight that could have gone either way, so

:52:23.:52:28.

in this case the crowd might have influenced the judges a little bit

:52:28.:52:34.

because from what I understand, it wasn't her best day. A little bit

:52:34.:52:38.

more tense than she might have been put she came through it. And

:52:38.:52:42.

exactly the kind of example as to why it it is on the Olympic agenda.

:52:42.:52:47.

She is a repeat world champion. If your discipline was not on the

:52:47.:52:51.

programme for a woman, but it was for a man, you would be aggrieved.

:52:51.:52:55.

I think these days they think they should be an equal balance, and I

:52:55.:52:59.

think she probably trains as hard as any man and fights as well, so

:52:59.:53:05.

why shouldn't she? Her dad was a box and he trains her. The home

:53:05.:53:09.

town scenes in County Wicklow, you could see the tension when they

:53:09.:53:14.

finally realised she had the gold. The first gold medal for Ireland

:53:14.:53:23.

since 1996 in Atlanta or. And for a whole nation to be rejoicing.

:53:23.:53:28.

an American Irishman, why wasn't she wearing green? All the boxers

:53:29.:53:33.

wear red and blue. We were discussing that today. There is the

:53:33.:53:37.

Irish House in London, a massive Irish community in London and all

:53:37.:53:41.

over the UK. Pockets of the community celebrating everywhere.

:53:41.:53:44.

They have to wear red and blue and it would be nice to wear the

:53:44.:53:49.

national colours and a rare -- where those head protectors.

:53:49.:53:54.

Ireland is going through a tough time, so for a country it is pretty

:53:54.:53:57.

important to win a gold medal, so that is really going to spur them

:53:57.:54:04.

on. Boxing is struggling in general, I think. The women, for the first

:54:04.:54:08.

time are even in the Olympics, so I think this is a great Forum for

:54:08.:54:13.

boxing to try and get back in the mix. I think it has given it to

:54:13.:54:18.

boost. Olympic boxing is special. To have the women on to the

:54:18.:54:22.

programme has given it a bit of a lift. Yes, I think it opens at out

:54:22.:54:28.

to more people to play and watch. And as a former fitness all women,

:54:28.:54:32.

it is a fantastic way to keep fit. I believe the first time ever that

:54:32.:54:38.

the US did not get any medal in the men's, so thankfully you can go to

:54:38.:54:43.

the next bout, because we are going to show all of that. We are not

:54:43.:54:46.

showing that tonight, but you can tell us about that Seventeen-year-

:54:46.:54:51.

old. She is incredible. She was a middleweight, the Third Division,

:54:52.:54:58.

and she dominated the and she has, like Nicola, she has a personality,

:54:58.:55:04.

so I hope for great things. Good to have you as our women's boxing

:55:04.:55:08.

correspondent. From the physicality of boxing to horses dancing to

:55:08.:55:13.

music, that is what the Olympics is about, variety. Great Britain has

:55:13.:55:17.

excelled on horseback and today was the individual dressage final. Our

:55:17.:55:20.

three riders were beautifully placed for an assault on the

:55:20.:55:30.
:55:30.:55:32.

individual members -- medals. two days ago, Carl Hester, Laura

:55:32.:55:35.

Bechtolsheimer and Charlotte Dujardin won our first ever Olympic

:55:35.:55:39.

medal, taking the team gold, but today they went head-to-head, and

:55:39.:55:44.

which one of them, if any, could do the double? Having placed well in

:55:44.:55:48.

the qualifiers all three were in the last six to ride and Laura was

:55:48.:55:58.
:55:58.:56:04.

than so far? I am holding my breath, but I am happy so far. You get the

:56:04.:56:08.

feel that they are dancing together to the music. You certainly do.

:56:08.:56:17.

Fantastic! That is one of the best tests I have ever seen from a

:56:17.:56:25.

British rider in freestyle, and she knows it! 84.33. She goes into the

:56:25.:56:32.

lead. So, a happy Laura was in the gold medal position with three

:56:32.:56:36.

riders to go up. Two of them were her team-mate, and first up was

:56:36.:56:43.

Carl Hester on Utopia. A small loss of rhythm coming out. So slight

:56:43.:56:48.

errors cost him dearly and left him in third. And after an impressive

:56:48.:56:56.

round by the Dutch rider put her into the lead it was all about what

:56:57.:57:01.

27-year-old Charlotte Dujardin, riding her horse could do. Her

:57:01.:57:07.

rousing patriotic choice setting the tone. It there was ever time to

:57:07.:57:12.

ride for your life, it is now, Charlotte. She is doing it, Judy,

:57:12.:57:22.
:57:22.:57:22.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 52 seconds

:57:22.:58:10.

she's doing it. She's going for temperament! She has done it!

:58:10.:58:18.

has got the gold. 19.89. Charlotte Dujardin has iced the cake in style

:58:18.:58:28.
:58:28.:58:29.

So no, Charlotte, who 18 months ago he and never ridden in a grant Prix

:58:29.:58:34.

event secured a British first, double Olympic gold -- grand prix

:58:34.:58:39.

event. Laura Bechtolsheimer took bronze, and Carl Hester finished

:58:39.:58:45.

5th overall, topping off what has been the equestrian team for Great

:58:45.:58:49.

Britain's most successful Olympics ever. And the thing I really love

:58:49.:58:54.

about that story, Carl Hester was competed on the same team, and he

:58:54.:58:57.

was against a in the individual and he gave her that horse and said

:58:57.:59:04.

that the horse was like blind or And sea search. There's growing

:59:04.:59:07.

concern for 59-year-old Gregory Last seen at 11am yesterday morning

:59:07.:59:17.
:59:17.:59:22.

I saw him today, and I did not give him the time of day. He was in the

:59:22.:59:29.

stadium. He sends his love. There are horse and rider have a

:59:29.:59:33.

different relationship. The rider is in charge of the horse, and he

:59:33.:59:39.

is waiting outside. How long has that grudge been going on? When you

:59:39.:59:42.

are part of a team, you do you think she would not normally do.

:59:43.:59:50.

And if he is old enough to make a decision... You used to lend

:59:50.:59:55.

rackets to Jimmy Connors, didn't you? I am staying out of this one.

:59:55.:00:05.
:00:05.:00:11.

He it is time for another blast of I am not going to trot on. Take it

:00:11.:00:18.

to 25 on the board. Very good. We are getting there. We already got a

:00:18.:00:22.

hint that was coming early on after the taekwondo, but we didn't know

:00:22.:00:27.

where they would be coming from. A great win for Charlotte and a

:00:27.:00:37.
:00:37.:00:40.

bronze to Laura. News today it of a First to go, Langehanenberg with

:00:40.:00:44.

Damon Hill. We joined Damon Hill at the top of the circuit going into

:00:44.:00:52.

the right-hander. Dropping downhill to the hairpin left hander. Damon

:00:52.:00:57.

has driven an absolutely immaculate race. Approaching the end of the

:00:57.:01:01.

last lap. Damon Hill Exits the chicane and I have to stop because

:01:01.:01:06.

I've got a lump in my throat. Hill has put down a very, very

:01:06.:01:13.

strong challenge. I know that the Germans have got a very wicked

:01:13.:01:17.

sense of humour, but where do you think Damon Hill for a horse came

:01:17.:01:23.

from? Do I think he's scrubbed up rather well. If there's any

:01:23.:01:28.

confusion at home, we've sorted it out. That is Damon Hill, the

:01:28.:01:34.

Formula One driver, and that is Damon Hill fossils. What about

:01:34.:01:42.

Lewis Hamilton? You got horses. Thankfully at this time in my life

:01:42.:01:47.

I'm waiting to pick the right course. I am going to see what the

:01:47.:01:50.

great British team and the Germans, who seem to have the market on the

:01:50.:01:54.

top horses, they are going to start selling them after the Olympics.

:01:55.:01:59.

With the money I'm making from BBC late night, I am going to buy these

:01:59.:02:04.

great causes. Who will ride them? My daughter. She will be in the

:02:04.:02:08.

Olympics in eight years. You can't be serious, that would be a good

:02:08.:02:13.

name. Right! And the Serpentine is normally the preserve of voting

:02:13.:02:19.

Taurus and ducks, but today it hosted the brutal race over 10

:02:19.:02:23.

kilometre or open water. Keri-Anne Payne had great hopes for Great

:02:23.:02:27.

Britain. She is the world champion and silver medallist from Beijing.

:02:27.:02:35.

She -- could she bring GB's first swimming gold medal of the game's?

:02:35.:02:45.
:02:45.:02:53.

Rowing, sailing, cycling, equestrian, canoeing, we've won so

:02:53.:02:56.

many gold medals in a lot of different sports. Swimming has got

:02:56.:03:05.

one more chance. Bring on the pain. Keri-Anne Payne is in slot No. 15.

:03:05.:03:13.

She has a very, very clear tactic. She is going for it. She has gone

:03:13.:03:18.

with the Hungarian. Farepak looks like it's trying to hold on to

:03:18.:03:22.

Keri-Anne Payne. I remember watching her in Beijing when she

:03:22.:03:27.

won silver. There was hardly a soul there apart from in the grandstand.

:03:27.:03:31.

It is completely different here, but it is like the slowest Mexican

:03:31.:03:38.

wave coming down. With pretty much 30 minutes gone, there will be

:03:38.:03:44.

almost a quarter of the race gone. About 2,500 metres done. 7,500 to

:03:44.:03:52.

go. 10,000m. That is six laps of the Serpentine in Hyde Park. They

:03:52.:03:57.

can stop for a drink or some food at the feeding station. But

:03:57.:04:01.

basically this is non-stop action. Keri-Anne Payne is there or

:04:01.:04:07.

thereabouts. Looking good at the moment. Brilliant to see so many of

:04:07.:04:12.

the GB swimmers here coming to support Keri-Anne Payne. In the

:04:12.:04:17.

middle, who Wells, the Prime Minister! To just over half way.

:04:17.:04:22.

She is still in there but she is in the pack, not her normal place. She

:04:22.:04:29.

is usually leading. She has gone now. I have to say it is not

:04:29.:04:33.

looking good for Keri-Anne Payne. She is in fourth or 5th, but

:04:33.:04:37.

there's quite a gap to the leader. Come on! She is Delyn fourth

:04:37.:04:41.

position. Just off the pace for the gold medal, but may be in

:04:41.:04:51.
:04:51.:04:54.

The Hungarian gets it. The Silver has gone to Andersson of the USA.

:04:54.:05:00.

Bronze has gone to Italy. Keri-Anne Payne in fourth position. After

:05:00.:05:05.

10,000m, nearly two hours of swimming, so close! I just made a

:05:05.:05:09.

really bad decision on the third lap when I went in to feed. It all

:05:09.:05:14.

went wrong and I had to work really hard to get back to where I was and

:05:14.:05:19.

I worked too hard. It is not quite what I wanted for all of these

:05:19.:05:25.

people and my family and everybody that has worked really hard for me.

:05:25.:05:31.

When I go away, my dream was to win an Olympic medal, which I have done

:05:32.:05:36.

in Beijing. I can't be too upset, I have done what I set out today. I

:05:36.:05:41.

wanted to win the gold medal, but I will always be a Olympic silver

:05:41.:05:49.

medallist and world champion. doesn't go right for everybody.

:05:49.:05:54.

is sad. Everybody wants to win. There's only three medals at all

:05:54.:06:01.

there. She had high hopes, being the world champion. We used to have

:06:01.:06:07.

a world of sports in the States and I, along with many people, got

:06:07.:06:13.

sucked into that race. The crowds looked incredible. That is a brutal

:06:13.:06:17.

way to lose, by about a second for the bronze and three or four

:06:17.:06:22.

seconds to gold after two hours of swimming. It can come down to the

:06:22.:06:27.

finest margins. That is the beauty of sport. There's a winner and

:06:28.:06:31.

unfortunately there have to be some people, even if they do well, they

:06:31.:06:36.

don't get first. Daniel fog is going in the men's open water

:06:36.:06:40.

tomorrow. No joy for Keri-Anne Payne and no joy for the British

:06:40.:06:44.

men's hockey team either. They were aiming to reach the final for the

:06:44.:06:48.

first time since their gold medal win over Germany in 1988, but they

:06:48.:06:53.

were soundly beaten by the Netherlands. The final score was 9-

:06:53.:06:56.

2. In the second half their heads dropped a little and they conceded

:06:56.:07:01.

three goals in around five minutes. But they will play Australia for

:07:01.:07:06.

the bronze medal on Saturday. We wish them the best. The Dutch are

:07:06.:07:10.

much fancied to take both gold medals in this tournament. Bad news

:07:10.:07:20.
:07:20.:07:24.

for hockey and more headline makers The women's football final was won

:07:24.:07:30.

for a third time by the USA. They beat Japan 2-1. Carly Lloyd scored

:07:30.:07:34.

both goals in front of 80,000 at Wembley, a record for the women's

:07:35.:07:39.

final. The men's beach volleyball gold

:07:49.:07:54.

medal has been won by Germany. They And on a dramatic crash field day

:07:54.:07:59.

in the BMX, Liam Phillips booked his place in Friday's semi-finals.

:07:59.:08:09.
:08:09.:08:16.

There was no sailing today because of a lack of wind so it is time for

:08:16.:08:26.
:08:26.:08:26.

Gerat Britain's group and rhythmic gymnasts were in action. They had a

:08:27.:08:31.

huge battle to get here. They fought their own governing body

:08:32.:08:38.

odour confusion after their requirements. They moved from all

:08:38.:08:41.

areas from the UK so they could train together. They received an

:08:41.:08:45.

incredible response from the Wembley crowd. They will not get a

:08:45.:08:49.

medal, but it is the taking part that counts. Well done, girls, and

:08:49.:08:54.

good luck tomorrow. Let's get back to tonight track and

:08:54.:08:59.

field. The 800m next. Britain last won gold in 1980 with Steve Ovett

:08:59.:09:04.

beating Seb Coe. Tonight 24-year- old Andrew Osagie lined up for

:09:04.:09:10.

Britain in the race of his life. David Rudisha was the hot favourite

:09:10.:09:20.
:09:20.:09:25.

and world record holder. Steve Cram race of his life. It is against the

:09:25.:09:30.

world record holder and world champion, who is now attempting to

:09:30.:09:34.

become the Olympic champion, David Rudisha. He loves to be at the

:09:34.:09:44.
:09:44.:09:51.

everybody thought would happen. Rudisha in the front. And he is

:09:51.:09:57.

stretching it out. A fast opening 300 metres. He is looking for a

:09:57.:10:04.

decent, solid 52nd time. Kaki is following him. The medals may be

:10:04.:10:10.

decided by the people that don't follow. A phenomenal opening and he

:10:10.:10:14.

knows about performances. There might have been world records set

:10:14.:10:22.

in the Olympic Games at the 800m. Osagie was through in 50 seconds.

:10:22.:10:28.

David Rudisha, the great athlete that he has. They have gone with

:10:28.:10:33.

him down the back straight. Can they hang on? Look at this. That is

:10:33.:10:39.

really, really quick through 600. Amos moves into second place. Kitum

:10:39.:10:45.

is moving into third. Osagie trying to get forward. It is all about

:10:45.:10:49.

David Rudisha. Already the world record holder, already the world

:10:49.:10:55.

champion. Striding away to become the Olympic champion. How quick

:10:55.:11:05.
:11:05.:11:15.

will it be? World record! greatest-ever 800m race anyone has

:11:15.:11:22.

ever run, that I've ever seen: obviously. What a privilege to be

:11:22.:11:32.
:11:32.:11:38.

here. That is a world record. Seb Coe beat the world record all

:11:38.:11:43.

those years ago. A personal best fit Timothy Kitum. Andrew Osagie,

:11:43.:11:47.

1:43.77, a new personal best for 1:43.77, a new personal best for

:11:47.:11:53.

him. I'm very happy. This is the moment I've been waiting for for a

:11:53.:11:59.

very long time. To come here and break the world record is something

:11:59.:12:05.

unbelievable. What a fantastic race. What an elegant runner as well. The

:12:05.:12:10.

first world record. The performance of the athletics track so far. It

:12:10.:12:16.

was an unbelievable race. The times and the rest of the race were

:12:16.:12:20.

unbelievable. The fastest times for each position. A few people said

:12:20.:12:24.

the conditions were lovely, there was not much wind, and ice

:12:24.:12:29.

temperature. People were thinking about the 200m. A you need the

:12:29.:12:35.

right guys. The only thing I'm a little sad about is that what was

:12:35.:12:40.

basically the best performance we've had so far is going to get

:12:40.:12:45.

overshadows by Usain Bolt. -- overshadowed. Athletics purists

:12:45.:12:51.

will probably... Poor of the headlines tomorrow will be about

:12:51.:12:58.

Usain Bolt. Not if Seb Coe has a thing to say about it! I think it

:12:58.:13:03.

was pretty gutsy. The guy came out and said I will set a world record

:13:03.:13:10.

and he did. Andrew had a fantastic race. His time is the four fastest

:13:10.:13:15.

ever, behind Elliott, Seb Coe and Steve Cram. He smashed his personal

:13:15.:13:18.

best. Is there a dearth of middle- distance runners? Doesn't

:13:18.:13:27.

disappoint you? These things are cyclical. All sports have to go out

:13:27.:13:32.

and find their future champions. You're right, it has been a good

:13:32.:13:40.

few years... 20 since we have had a man in the 800m final. Exactly. He

:13:40.:13:44.

ran a personal best, there is nothing more you can do. It was the

:13:44.:13:51.

best race ever. Doesn't he need a rivalry? They always help. Maybe if

:13:51.:13:59.

somebody was coming up behind him. Another story is his coach. He was

:13:59.:14:03.

a missionary who went over to Kenya and met Brendan Foster's brother

:14:03.:14:08.

and he suggested he should start coaching kids. That is how they met.

:14:08.:14:15.

A nice story. I thought it was! can go to Newcastle and find some

:14:15.:14:20.

runners. Your final event, the decathlon, 1,500m, you never looked

:14:21.:14:25.

like you enjoyed that. You're right. I'm glad I'm not doing it now.

:14:26.:14:30.

did it tonight because it was the final of the decathlon. Ashton

:14:30.:14:34.

Eaton, the man who broke the world record coming into this, was

:14:34.:14:38.

looking to break the Olympic record here. He is an interesting

:14:38.:14:42.

character because he only found has bought six years ago. He has done

:14:42.:14:49.

remarkably well. Been a lot of sports, every 10 years you get

:14:49.:14:54.

somebody that is the next generation. He is clearly that. He

:14:54.:14:58.

is so much better than all of the people around at the moment. Let's

:14:58.:15:08.
:15:08.:15:12.

look at what he has done over the yes, he has got the speed. A couple

:15:12.:15:15.

of tenths of his best, but more than enough to beat the best of the

:15:15.:15:21.

world at the moment. In the long jump, just over 80 metres. His shot

:15:22.:15:29.

putter is a little funky, because he uses a technique from the 50s.

:15:29.:15:34.

The high jump was OK. But here, he is powering away in the 400 metres.

:15:34.:15:39.

That was the end of the first day. Starting today on the hurdles.

:15:39.:15:45.

little bit of a shot. He is a fantastic hurdler -- a little bit

:15:45.:15:52.

of a shock. He is throwing his his weak point. The poll vault, very

:15:52.:16:00.

good, 5.2. I used to watch -- love watching you won the pole vault.

:16:00.:16:05.

Thank you, I used to like watching you as a gymnast! He threw a

:16:05.:16:10.

personal best in the javelin. And then I think it caught up with him

:16:10.:16:14.

because he did not have any sparkle left and he was just running for

:16:14.:16:19.

the goal. He was not going for any times or any records. Is he still a

:16:19.:16:29.
