You will be beauty, and a teenage kicking superstar is the Olympic

:00:46.:00:56.
:00:56.:01:08.

It is a lovely sight and we should savour it, the Olympic flame

:01:08.:01:16.

burning brightly, day 14. Almost over. 17 golds were given out today,

:01:16.:01:21.

17 dreams come true. That is the scene right now at the ExCel arena.

:01:21.:01:26.

It has been a day of boxing. We will be going there soon for

:01:26.:01:34.

Anthony Joshua's semi-final against Ivan Dychko's of Kazakhstan. And

:01:34.:01:44.
:01:44.:01:51.

now it is time to introduce you to What a got he is. -- what a God he

:01:51.:02:00.

is. The gold medal is hers. That has been a great performance by the

:02:00.:02:03.

youngest British boxer ever to win a medal.

:02:03.:02:10.

A big hello tip Amir Khan, Ian Thorpe and javelin champion from

:02:10.:02:15.

1984, Tessa Sanderson. We had Daley Thompson yesterday, you here today,

:02:15.:02:19.

it is wonderful to see you. Thank you, I am loving it. It is

:02:19.:02:24.

fantastic. I cannot believe how well Team GB is doing. And you look

:02:24.:02:32.

almost exactly the same as you did? Thank you! A lot older now. Here is

:02:32.:02:42.
:02:42.:02:45.

a taste of what is coming up We are live at the ExCel arena for

:02:45.:02:50.

his super-heavyweight clash. Anthony Joshua is hoping for a

:02:50.:02:55.

place in the semi-final. Lisa Dobriskey is looking to get

:02:55.:02:58.

herself in the medals for the 1,500m.

:02:58.:03:02.

Could Shanaze Reade and Liam Phillips dodge the dangers for the

:03:02.:03:08.

BMX? And what has happened to the Australians? A note of caution for

:03:08.:03:15.

Team GB. We have got great taekwondo action

:03:15.:03:19.

as well. Let's start with athletics. One of the feature races at any

:03:19.:03:26.

Olympics is the 1,500m. Following on from the victory in the men's

:03:26.:03:31.

race on Tuesday, all eyes were on the women. Lisa Dobriskey came an

:03:31.:03:36.

agonising 4th in Beijing, here she had high hopes for a medal. This

:03:36.:03:40.

has come after a remarkable return to fitness. She was told earlier

:03:40.:03:47.

this year to forget the Games after blood clots on her lungs. Laura

:03:47.:03:51.

Weightman recorded a personal best in qualifying and you cannot ask

:03:51.:04:01.
:04:01.:04:10.

for more than that. Favourite for The early part of the race was very

:04:10.:04:20.
:04:20.:04:31.

Jamal a shut it off and then another push. Look, oh, dear me? Is

:04:31.:04:41.
:04:41.:04:44.

that Meggan Usain the again? the back straight. Where is Lisa

:04:44.:04:51.

Dobriskey? She has got a problem now. She will have to work and try

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

and close the gap. She would have been able to work off the pace. Can

:05:05.:05:11.

Jamal summon something again? The Turkish athlete kicks again and

:05:11.:05:17.

Gamze Bulut also fighting to get there. It is turkey at the front.

:05:17.:05:21.

Asli Cakir Alptekin, the European champion is going to become the

:05:21.:05:27.

Olympic champion. Gamze Bulut takes the silver. That will be turkey's

:05:27.:05:35.

first ever Olympic athletics gold medal, men or women. A Turkish one,

:05:35.:05:45.
:05:45.:05:53.

That was really messy the race, but I gave it my all. I try to stay

:05:53.:05:59.

with it but I find myself, I did not have there. I'm really pleased

:05:59.:06:03.

that I have got into the Olympic final and my first major

:06:03.:06:07.

championship. I have nothing to complain about. I believe there is

:06:07.:06:11.

more from in the future and this is a good path -- platform to push me

:06:11.:06:15.

on now. A head of the race people were talking about you as a

:06:15.:06:18.

potential medallist, where you going in with that same kind of

:06:18.:06:22.

confidence? Definitely. It would have been a tough ask to get a

:06:22.:06:28.

medal but I always believed I could. I feel quite dejected and a bit

:06:28.:06:33.

disappointed now. Thank you for talking to us. Thank you.

:06:33.:06:38.

I think Laura Weightman will take a lot from that going forwards. A one,

:06:38.:06:43.

two for Turkey, the winner, Asli Cakir Alptekin was banned for two

:06:43.:06:47.

years. Steve said it in commentary not the result the athletics result

:06:48.:06:51.

-- world would like to see. I hate that, when someone gets band and

:06:52.:06:57.

then brought back into the sport. Are you all given lifetime bans?

:06:57.:07:03.

is such a fine line, all this now. It is just getting ridiculous, I

:07:03.:07:07.

think. People are run out have chances, yes, but I am still for

:07:08.:07:13.

that, if you have done something like that then take it out of the

:07:13.:07:17.

sport. I hated it. I knew I was competing against people who had

:07:17.:07:23.

taken drugs and I thought I had worked so damn hard, I went out

:07:23.:07:26.

there, I would compete against people who had beaten me and it was

:07:26.:07:31.

not fair. Where are you on this? think the band should be a lot

:07:31.:07:38.

harsher than a two year ban. Whether it is a performance-

:07:38.:07:41.

enhancing drug which is put in someone's system and they to get

:07:41.:07:45.

themselves, we look at lifetime bans. This is what we should do.

:07:45.:07:49.

The only argument I can make for shorter bans is if you did not

:07:49.:07:53.

knowingly put something into your body. This is becoming a grey area

:07:53.:07:57.

now because the rules have now changed. If you can prove you did

:07:57.:08:02.

not put something in your body then you can get off and I do not like

:08:02.:08:06.

that either. I liked that when you were responsible for everything

:08:06.:08:09.

that went into your body and the testing result was judge of that. I

:08:09.:08:14.

thought it was a better role. a shame when it is such a blue

:08:14.:08:19.

Riband event as the 1,500m. Let's move on to speed and

:08:19.:08:25.

excitement of the relay final. The US were in lane seven, Jamaica in

:08:25.:08:35.
:08:35.:08:41.

rise but gets off to a good start. So does Madison, the American is

:08:42.:08:46.

flying into the back straight. There goes Allyson Felix. They are

:08:46.:08:51.

being chased now by the Jamaicans. Sherone Simpson has a lot of work

:08:51.:08:55.

to do. The Americans are really going well here. On the third leg

:08:55.:09:01.

for the USA, Bianca night. She will hand over to Carmalita Jeter. This

:09:01.:09:07.

looks like the USA all the way. What can Kerron Stewart do? At the

:09:07.:09:12.

moment, nothing. The USA are storming away. Carmelita Jeter wins

:09:12.:09:18.

it for the USA, Jamaica in second. Ukraine in third. It is a new world

:09:18.:09:28.
:09:28.:09:29.

record! They have beaten the East German's record which they set way

:09:29.:09:34.

back in 1985. That is one of the longest-lasting world records ever.

:09:34.:09:42.

It takes East Germany of the record books forever. What a final. USA

:09:42.:09:52.
:09:52.:09:53.

get the gold medal in the women's Great Britain did not have a

:09:53.:09:57.

women's team because they messed up in the world championships. And

:09:57.:10:04.

talking of an Essex, the men's team tonight. -- talking of a mess UPS.

:10:04.:10:11.

I cannot believe it. We either drop the baton all run out of the box.

:10:11.:10:16.

Two of the infringements today. Adam Gemili is out of the box and

:10:16.:10:20.

then out of the lane. I thought it was a real shame for Adam Gemili

:10:20.:10:25.

because he is a youngster, his first major championships and I

:10:25.:10:31.

think inexperience, I felt, I am not an expert, should he have run

:10:31.:10:37.

the last leg. His hand was way up. There was no way he could have

:10:37.:10:45.

controlled. It is a real shame. is a shame because Gemili is a Big

:10:45.:10:53.

Star for the future and we hope. will have a lot of pressure because

:10:53.:10:58.

he is in London and he will have the crowd behind him and he will be

:10:58.:11:01.

nervous. The crowd that there has been brilliant, making anyone want

:11:01.:11:06.

to get up and go. I think he must have got a bit excited and anxious

:11:06.:11:11.

and poor devil, if he thought he had better go. It is straight

:11:11.:11:16.

forward in the pull. Relay changeovers, we took that thousands

:11:16.:11:21.

of a second. You can still do it wrong. It was but that was painful

:11:21.:11:26.

to watch. It is a bit that penalty shoot-outs. The baton and penalty

:11:26.:11:29.

shoot-outs, we cannot seem to get right. We just have to learn from

:11:29.:11:36.

it and put it right. The changeover in the 4 X 4 is more

:11:36.:11:39.

straightforward. Great Britain have not won a medal in 16 years but

:11:39.:11:45.

they qualified as third-fastest. We join in the last leg with Dai

:11:45.:11:55.
:11:55.:11:57.

Greene handing over to Martin What is his flat speed like? Cuba

:11:57.:12:05.

have pulled up. There is a big gap. Look at the ground which is being

:12:05.:12:11.

eaten up by Jonathan Borlee. Can Dai Greene hang on and give Martin

:12:11.:12:18.

really a chance on the last lap? Trinidad are treading water. Here

:12:18.:12:24.

comes Dai Greene. Belgium have got a fantastic run on the last leg.

:12:24.:12:30.

The USA changeover first, then the Bahamas, then Trinidad and Tobago.

:12:30.:12:35.

What has Martin really got on this last leg? He is in 5th place at the

:12:35.:12:43.

moment. The USA are going for title number 17, Angelo Taylor has a huge

:12:43.:12:50.

amount of experience. His light rain and Mellor, a semi-finalist.

:12:50.:12:56.

Martyn Reaney is still in chance with a medal. -- Martin Rooney is

:12:56.:13:02.

still in with a chance of a medal. The Bahamas are challenging the

:13:02.:13:10.

United States. Martyn Rooney is into 4th, can he make a third?

:13:10.:13:15.

Bahamas will be the champions, USA second and Great Britain just run

:13:15.:13:25.
:13:25.:13:26.

What an incredible gold for the Bahamas. They have 1% of the

:13:26.:13:31.

population of the US, and to produce a team like that was great

:13:31.:13:36.

to see. Clearly, the Americans have almost been put down to match

:13:36.:13:39.

before this competition so it was still a good run from them as well.

:13:39.:13:44.

The Caribbean and West Indian islands are doing so well. In years

:13:44.:13:51.

gone by, or the Bahamas have had good 400m runners as well. Not that

:13:51.:13:55.

I'm against the US, but it was a great surprise to see them win that.

:13:55.:13:59.

Our guys, it is a shame that they were behind. Dai Greene does not

:13:59.:14:05.

seem to have been on it in these Olympics. I think these days, the

:14:05.:14:10.

days of Roger Black and Kriss Akabusi and the 400m runners, I

:14:10.:14:15.

think tonight, Rini ran really well. He was looking for some kind of

:14:15.:14:20.

redemption. He ran a super leg but for the others, it was OK and we

:14:20.:14:27.

need more than OK. Let's move on now to the women's 5,000m and

:14:27.:14:30.

Ethiopian Tirunesh Dibaba was aiming for the double after winning

:14:30.:14:35.

the 10,000m a week ago. In fact, she was aiming for the Double

:14:35.:14:41.

Double, after her exploits four years ago. Her arrival was be

:14:41.:14:45.

Vivian Cheruiyot of Kenya, Jo Pavey and Julia Bleasdale of Britain. We

:14:45.:14:55.
:14:55.:14:59.

join the race as it starts to wind- the screen. Here she comes up

:14:59.:15:03.

against her great rival, Meseret Defar. Has she got the power that

:15:03.:15:09.

she showed in the 10,000m? It really is important. Here comes

:15:09.:15:15.

Vivian Cheruiyot on the outside. Meseret Defar is on the outside. Is

:15:15.:15:22.

the champion going to defend her title? Meseret Defar, the former

:15:22.:15:25.

Olympic champion. Tirunesh Dibaba, the current Olympic champion. They

:15:25.:15:30.

are fighting hard to make history. Vivian Cheruiyot is gathering

:15:30.:15:38.

confidence. The Kenyon is close now. Dibaba is under pressure. Vivian

:15:38.:15:42.

Cheruiyot is looking for a bit of run. Now the two of them go toe-to-

:15:42.:15:47.

toe down the home straight. If it will be Meseret Defar. Vivian

:15:47.:15:50.

Cheruiyot finishing quickly. Meseret Defar, after winning here

:15:50.:15:58.

years ago, comes back to take the Olympic title. What a shock. Vivian

:15:58.:16:05.

Cheruiyot, then to Barber. 7th for Jo Pavey and Bleasdale in eighth

:16:05.:16:15.
:16:15.:16:21.

place. A good run from the two believe it because she has been

:16:21.:16:28.

second best to drum up for so long, and then Cheruiyot previously. --

:16:28.:16:36.

second best to Tirunesh Dibaba. Something of a surprise winner, but

:16:36.:16:40.

Tirunesh Dibaba, just not for her tonight. That historic double-

:16:40.:16:50.
:16:50.:16:50.

double? No. Absolutely incredible! I cannot remember if they are twins.

:16:50.:16:55.

Every time I see those little girls run, so much strength. They are

:16:55.:17:02.

fantastic. And they train hard. You know what it is like? Yes. I am

:17:02.:17:07.

sure they trained very, very hard, getting up early in the morning.

:17:07.:17:12.

are talking over 120 miles a week. That is incredible! But the

:17:12.:17:17.

strength when you see them running, and sort of like the hunker of

:17:17.:17:27.
:17:27.:17:30.

wanting it. You can see every time they run. And Tirunesh Dibaba, who

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

Bob won it... Well, she didn't. hoping -- I hope it in time we will

:17:42.:17:52.
:17:52.:17:58.

be able to step up. I really feel that he could do the double. It is

:17:58.:18:01.

great he took his stride pattern by the horns and changed it and got

:18:01.:18:06.

the gold. He has got so much more confidence, Mo Farah, and I think

:18:06.:18:13.

he will get it. You love him, don't you? Yes, Mo is a good friend and

:18:13.:18:19.

he will have the crowd behind him. I love him. It has shown tonight

:18:19.:18:24.

with Tirunesh Dibaba that it is not easy to get that double. And if we

:18:24.:18:28.

are talking about crowds and that sort of thing, they can play havoc

:18:28.:18:34.

with athletes. You don't know what the response will be. A noisy crowd

:18:34.:18:41.

there, but all of the venues. But it worked! Right on cue! It was the

:18:42.:18:48.

men's pole vault final tonight. Some good performances, and Steven

:18:48.:18:53.

Lewis managed to finish 5th overall. He will be disappointed but I think

:18:53.:18:59.

he did very well. The competition is always tough. And a new Olympic

:18:59.:19:09.
:19:09.:19:11.

record tonight for the winner, Renaud Lavillenie. Outstanding! I

:19:11.:19:18.

think our guy should be really pleased. It was a fantastic win for

:19:18.:19:22.

Greg Rutherford in the long jump. Are you satisfied the field events

:19:22.:19:26.

we have are coming through and that we are pushing the talent in the

:19:26.:19:31.

right direction? I am not exactly satisfied. It is good to see some

:19:31.:19:36.

of our bills coming through, the hammer throw and things like that.

:19:36.:19:42.

-- our girls. Unfortunately we did not get any medal. I was devastated

:19:42.:19:45.

for Goldie Sayers. I did not know whether I would make the decision

:19:45.:19:53.

to say, no, don't go in. Would you not even have started? Seeing her

:19:53.:19:57.

throat, that was nothing like her at all and I don't know whether one

:19:57.:20:05.

should have made the decision to say, no, the injury is too bad. --

:20:05.:20:13.

seeing her throw. I saw nothing like that, bless her. She had to

:20:13.:20:22.

have thrown away in the 60s to clinch the position. She probably

:20:22.:20:27.

could have got a medal if she had been OK. Sophie Hitchon was

:20:27.:20:32.

throwing tonight as well. She qualified in 10th. A former

:20:32.:20:36.

ballerina, and there is a transference of skills! Tonight,

:20:36.:20:44.

sadly, she finished 12 out of 12, but what an experience, the final,

:20:44.:20:48.

and what an experience for her. You throw a personal best and get into

:20:48.:20:55.

the Olympic Games. Yes. Getting to the finals and getting in is great.

:20:56.:21:00.

But I have yet to put my finger on it. I don't know whether it is the

:21:00.:21:05.

type of training we are doing, as such. Not even the hours, but the

:21:05.:21:12.

technicalities. Not just the power. She was a ballerina and the speed

:21:12.:21:17.

worked well for me. The supporters would have helped her. But also the

:21:17.:21:24.

aggression and hunger. Tatyana shen Co ended up with the gold. Let's

:21:24.:21:34.
:21:34.:21:36.

have a look at her. -- Tatyana Tatyana Lysenko. -- Tatyana Lysenko.

:21:36.:21:41.

I think going from a hammer thrower to a ballerina - that would be

:21:41.:21:51.
:21:51.:21:58.

interesting as well! sports the other day. Because

:21:59.:22:05.

Caroline Wosniacki was talking about how she loved the gymnastics

:22:05.:22:10.

and she meant the rhythmic gymnastics. We are going to do a

:22:10.:22:14.

bit more later on and we can talk about mashing up many other sports,

:22:14.:22:20.

but it is live boxing now - Anthony Joshua. He has already proved he

:22:20.:22:30.
:22:30.:22:50.

He really has been a remarkably rapid rise. Auto shot by Joshua!

:22:50.:22:59.

is now a guaranteed Olympic medallist. -- what a shot. Yeah,

:22:59.:23:04.

super heavyweight Anthony Joshua, and, of course, he is one of the

:23:04.:23:10.

magnificent seven fighting in London. The guarantee of a medal

:23:10.:23:15.

and we will catch up with the others later. Freddie Evans and

:23:15.:23:21.

Anthony Ogogo. But now is all about Anthony Joshua. The atmosphere

:23:21.:23:29.

there, well, it has been electric tonight. Soaking it up and calling

:23:29.:23:39.
:23:39.:24:18.

Great Britain, Anthony Joshua! Joshua has received ahead of this

:24:18.:24:28.
:24:28.:24:35.

super-heavyweight final. In front minute round in this Olympic semi-

:24:35.:24:39.

final between the box-set in blue, representing Britain. Anthony

:24:39.:24:47.

Joshua. And his opponent, the tallest boxer in the tournament,

:24:47.:24:55.

representing Kazakhstan. Anthony Joshua stands 6 ft 6 but he is

:24:55.:25:04.

towered over by a good tour and a half inches by his opponent. 6 ft 9.

:25:04.:25:10.

-- a good 2 and a half inches. Anthony Joshua, the reigning world

:25:10.:25:18.

silver medallist from Azerbaijan last year. Yes. A new situation for

:25:18.:25:24.

Joshua here, in that year's Boxing somebody significantly taller. --

:25:24.:25:30.

in that he is boxing. Don't let him settle into his own rhythm behind

:25:30.:25:36.

that jab. With the boxing distance, he has to close that gap down. And

:25:36.:25:46.
:25:46.:25:46.

then throw that right hand. four seeds made it through to the

:25:47.:25:56.

semi-finals. Again, Joshua being cheered to the rafters by the fans

:25:56.:26:02.

here at the ExCel Centre in London. East London, London's Docklands,

:26:02.:26:06.

but everybody getting behind Anthony Joshua from Finchley in

:26:06.:26:13.

North London, and competing at a home and Olympic Games. These two

:26:13.:26:17.

have sparred many times and Anthony Joshua does get the better of those.

:26:17.:26:23.

But this is different. It is a semi-final of the Olympic Games. It

:26:23.:26:27.

could come down to is in the better physically and mentally strong

:26:27.:26:33.

shape. I think that his Anthony Joshua were. Demonstrating

:26:33.:26:39.

wonderful movement. He worked effectively on the back foot and

:26:39.:26:45.

the front, showing a wide variety of shots, and because of that

:26:45.:26:49.

towering height, no opponent has been really successful at putting

:26:50.:26:55.

him under pressure. But Anthony Joshua, one of the strongest

:26:55.:27:00.

heavyweights in boxing. He has the tactics, the technique and, indeed,

:27:00.:27:06.

the temperament to do that. wants time and space. That is why

:27:06.:27:13.

Anthony has to put him under pressure. The third contest for

:27:13.:27:23.
:27:23.:27:30.

both of these boxes. A good Rover has 1-2. Right-left. Joshua,

:27:30.:27:35.

operating out of the centre ring into a clinch. The end to the first

:27:35.:27:42.

round of boxing and there is nothing between them. It is tied at

:27:42.:27:52.
:27:52.:28:01.

gets caught with their right hand. In this situation comedy comes back

:28:01.:28:08.

with a clever short, mid-range punch. -- in this situation, he

:28:08.:28:15.

comes back. Look at the height and reach by both boxers, but there he

:28:15.:28:25.
:28:25.:28:37.

bit more pressure. Into the second round we go in these men's 91 kilos

:28:37.:28:47.

plus heavyweights semi-final. Anthony Joshua, wearing blue,

:28:47.:28:52.

representing Great Britain. And his opponent, from Kazakhstan, who has

:28:52.:28:58.

been put under serious pressure in the first round. Beginning to get

:28:58.:29:06.

through with hard lefts and rights. Can the jab and a range find him?

:29:06.:29:13.

He has to bring that right and home. Beautiful left hand to finish that.

:29:13.:29:23.
:29:23.:29:25.

That from Joshua. He just has to allow his head to clear. Anthony

:29:25.:29:34.

Joshua, 6 ft 6. Towering figure of a boxer. And his opponent has a

:29:34.:29:44.
:29:44.:29:45.

good 1-2 of his own. The third out for both boxers here at the semi-

:29:45.:29:55.
:29:55.:30:08.

at the quarter-final stage. Anthony Joshua were had a really difficult

:30:08.:30:13.

encounter against his Cuban opponent. Just getting over the

:30:13.:30:17.

finish line in front before producing a winning good

:30:17.:30:20.

performance to eliminate the reigning Olympic silver medallist

:30:20.:30:26.

from China. He dropped him heavily during the course of that contest.

:30:27.:30:36.
:30:37.:30:41.

So we are here at the semi-final Josh has to upset that rhythm. He

:30:41.:30:48.

has to take him out of his comfort zone. He is starting to work better.

:30:48.:30:52.

When he is able to do that as he has been in his opening two bouts,

:30:53.:30:59.

he is a very difficult proposition indeed. Anthony Joshua started the

:30:59.:31:03.

round by disrupting the routine that Ivan Dychko was displaying.

:31:03.:31:10.

is waiting too long. He has got to get back on that front foot, work

:31:10.:31:20.
:31:20.:31:21.

with that jab, and set himself up for the big red. Ivan Dychko popped

:31:21.:31:31.
:31:31.:31:39.

Ivan Dychko has settled into a rhythm and boxed effectively. That

:31:39.:31:44.

is why the scoreline remains tied. It was four points apiece. After

:31:44.:31:54.
:31:54.:32:01.

one round of boxing, it is tied at been a point up going into this

:32:01.:32:06.

last round. Ivan Dychko definitely came back in that last minute also.

:32:06.:32:13.

He landed with a shot. Joshua slowed his feet down and neglected

:32:13.:32:23.
:32:23.:32:36.

construction, be more active with it. Trough, come on. -- Josh, come

:32:36.:32:43.

on. The crowd I doing their best to raise the activity limit of Anthony

:32:44.:32:48.

Joshua. He is three minutes away from a place in the gold medal bout

:32:48.:32:52.

but the boxer wearing red from Kazakhstan is equally determined to

:32:52.:32:57.

book his place in the final as well. Two are highly skilled amateur

:32:57.:33:02.

boxers competing for all they are worth on the grandest stage of all.

:33:02.:33:06.

It is the Olympic Games, the games of the 30th Olympiad here in London

:33:06.:33:10.

and their contest is tied at eight points apiece after two rounds of

:33:10.:33:15.

boxing. The winner will progress to the gold medal bout. The other

:33:15.:33:23.

person will have to settle for bronze. There were cries of Joshua,

:33:23.:33:33.

Joshua, wringing out all around the ExCel Arena in Docklands.

:33:33.:33:37.

fantastic boxing match. I think Ivan Dychko is more vulnerable when

:33:37.:33:44.

he is put under pressure. That is what Anthony Joshua has to do. That

:33:44.:33:49.

was a super punch from Joshua. There was a trace of punch coming

:33:49.:33:58.

from his nose. The stinging left to jab is starting to increase the

:33:58.:34:06.

flow of blood. How much will that change things? The momentum now is

:34:06.:34:11.

beginning to tilt in Joshua's favour. Ivan Dychko is keen to hold

:34:12.:34:15.

on in the centre ring. It is important he starts to double up

:34:15.:34:25.
:34:25.:34:26.

his attacks. He has to go again, Ronald. Four years ago, when James

:34:26.:34:29.

DeGale was winning his Olympic title, Anthony Joshua was not even

:34:29.:34:35.

watching. He knew next to nothing about amateur boxing. He only

:34:35.:34:40.

started boxing when he followed his cousin who won a heavyweight title

:34:40.:34:45.

down to Finchley Boxing Club in north London. In the space of four

:34:45.:34:49.

years, he stands just over a minute away from NO-SPACE in the Olympic

:34:49.:34:56.

boxing finals. -- from a place in the Olympic boxing finals. Ivan

:34:56.:35:02.

Dychko is definitely tired. This will suit him, this rest. He is

:35:02.:35:08.

holding now. That blood is the result of those fast jabs from

:35:08.:35:13.

Joshua. The momentum is with the man in blue. He has to step on the

:35:13.:35:19.

gas. The Fellow in red is tiring. We are inside the final minute of

:35:19.:35:24.

this Olympic semi-final. Anthony Joshua of Great Britain is doing

:35:24.:35:29.

his utmost to book his place in the Olympic super-heavyweight semi-

:35:29.:35:34.

final, in an effort to emulate Audley Harrison who took the title

:35:34.:35:41.

in 2000. Ivan Dychko is on the retreat. That was a good right

:35:41.:35:45.

uppercut on the inside from Joshua. The momentum has tilted in Joshua's

:35:45.:35:55.
:35:55.:35:57.

favour. He is proving impossible to discourage. He is different on the

:35:57.:36:03.

back for it. This is Anthony Joshua's round now. If he wins this

:36:03.:36:07.

round he will have won the contest. He has definitely scored with more

:36:07.:36:16.

punches. Inside the closing seconds. He is finishing in strong fashion.

:36:16.:36:25.

A three punch combination. As he returns to his blue corner, Anthony

:36:25.:36:29.

Joshua has surely done enough to book his place in the Olympic

:36:29.:36:36.

super-heavyweight final. Ivan Dychko was a formidable adversary.

:36:36.:36:41.

He is the tallest man in the tournament. Anthony Joshua produced

:36:41.:36:49.

a spirited effort in the final round. Joshua's desire was perhaps

:36:49.:36:54.

greater, his fitness was perhaps superior and he got home with the

:36:54.:36:58.

more accurate punches in that crucial, critical third and final

:36:58.:37:05.

round. Joshua certainly sensed he was starting to get through. That

:37:05.:37:10.

gave him the momentum. He kept going forward. For me, there was

:37:10.:37:16.

only one winner in that round, that man bear. Both boxers now standing

:37:16.:37:26.
:37:26.:37:27.

awaiting the decision. Ladies and gentlemen, the winner with 13

:37:27.:37:34.

points to 11, in the blue corner, Anthony Joshua! Anthony Joshua is

:37:34.:37:40.

beaming from ear to ear, because he has just booked his place in the

:37:40.:37:44.

Olympic super-heavyweight gold medal bout. He is through to the

:37:44.:37:48.

Olympic final. He is guaranteed at least a silver medal and just

:37:48.:37:52.

listen to the reception, the ovation, that he is receiving from

:37:53.:37:58.

this ExCel crowd that is filled to capacity. He takes his time to

:37:58.:38:04.

acknowledge the support he is receiving and how crucial was that

:38:04.:38:07.

support in inspiring, in encouraging Anthony Joshua over the

:38:07.:38:13.

finishing line because the bout was tied at eight points apiece.

:38:13.:38:17.

Anthony Joshua summoned up a supreme effort. He beat his chest

:38:17.:38:25.

in celebration because he has just booked his place in the Olympic

:38:25.:38:28.

super-heavyweight about. Celebrations in the blue corner.

:38:28.:38:34.

Their man has done it. He has the chance to emulate Audrie -- Audley

:38:35.:38:41.

Harrison may become the Olympic champion. Anthony Joshua is an

:38:41.:38:47.

Olympic finalist. Let's not forget Robert McCracken, the national

:38:47.:38:51.

coach. He has produced three finalists here at these Games.

:38:51.:38:57.

Congratulations. What a wonderful scene here at the ExCel Arena in

:38:57.:39:02.

London. Anthony Joshua continues to be cheered as he makes his exit. He

:39:02.:39:07.

makes his exit from the arena knowing he will be back here on

:39:07.:39:11.

Sunday to compete in the final contest of the Olympic Games boxing

:39:11.:39:17.

tournament. That is the privilege, the honour of afforded to the

:39:17.:39:21.

super-heavyweight final list. Well done, Anthony Joshua. You are in

:39:21.:39:31.
:39:31.:39:35.

What a night for British boxing. We have seen Fred Evans secure a place

:39:35.:39:39.

in the final on Sunday, now this man has made it through to an

:39:39.:39:43.

Olympic final. Was that the game plan to that, to wear your opponent

:39:43.:39:50.

down? A bit. Once again, the best atmosphere I have ever boxed in. It

:39:50.:39:57.

has boosted us up. I dedicate a win to my captain, he is a legend.

:39:57.:40:00.

Unfortunately, he did not get the decision against the Mongolian so

:40:00.:40:07.

that is for Tom. What did they say to going into that round, go for

:40:07.:40:12.

it? Never just go for it. Used all your attributes and get the win.

:40:12.:40:18.

I'm glad it paid off, I was determined to get the win. Once you

:40:18.:40:23.

got the job working, you had the big man in serious trouble. He is a

:40:23.:40:27.

great fighter. I took it away from him, I thought I would box at my

:40:27.:40:34.

distance instead of his. defending champion showed big heart

:40:34.:40:40.

in the previous final by coming back to win, are you ready to win?

:40:41.:40:47.

I will be on Sunday. I know we talk bedroom finals, but this is a dream,

:40:47.:40:52.

isn't it, a London boy, London Olympic final? I am buzzing but I

:40:52.:40:57.

have got to ride that steady roller coaster. I cannot get too high.

:40:57.:41:01.

When it goes wrong, I will not get to lead. Focus on Sunday. I hope

:41:01.:41:05.

you can come out on Sunday and support us. You are guaranteed a

:41:05.:41:09.

silver but you're going for gold. Thank you.

:41:09.:41:14.

Well done to Anthony Joshua and he will fight the defending champion.

:41:14.:41:18.

He beat him last year in the world championship quarter-final so he

:41:18.:41:23.

has got that in his head. That will help him be on his side because he

:41:23.:41:27.

will know how to beat him. He knows what his style is all about so why

:41:27.:41:30.

am sure he will go into the fight confident and after beating him

:41:30.:41:35.

last year, that will give him an excellent -- an extra confidence.

:41:35.:41:40.

He boxed really well today. The Kazakhstan opponent was a lot

:41:40.:41:44.

taller than him. The first two rounds were very close. They were

:41:44.:41:49.

tied. That is right. In the first- round he seemed very nervous.

:41:49.:41:53.

Slowly, his nerves seemed to settle. In the last round, I'm sure he was

:41:53.:41:58.

told to put the pressure on and push the Kazakhstan the back and he

:41:58.:42:03.

won by two points. This was from the last round when Ivan Dychko got

:42:03.:42:08.

a bloody nose as well. It does not matter if you get someone's nose

:42:08.:42:12.

bloodied because you put the pressure on and try and hurt them a

:42:12.:42:16.

little bit more because you know the person is hurt anyway. You can

:42:16.:42:24.

see he was very hurt there. surprised me a bit earlier on, Ian

:42:24.:42:30.

Thorpe, you were a bit of a boxer in your day? I boxed. I just worked

:42:30.:42:35.

out, if I had boxed in the Olympics I would be in the super-heavyweight

:42:35.:42:40.

division which is probably why I boxed in private. You can laugh but

:42:40.:42:45.

seriously, the movements in boxing, use the same muscles as you do in

:42:45.:42:49.

swimming. For a higher intensity, I loved it, loved boxing. I did not

:42:49.:42:54.

love it when they hit me back so I hit them back harder. So you did

:42:54.:42:59.

not just do the training? No, I learnt how to do it from a boxing

:42:59.:43:06.

coach. Don't be surprised to see him in the next Olympics!

:43:06.:43:13.

It is the over 91, not the A grade category. Are you saying I am

:43:13.:43:19.

told?! He has been learning to speak Yorkshire because he is a bit

:43:19.:43:22.

aggrieved with Yorkshire being above Australia in the medal table

:43:22.:43:28.

but we will talk about that later on. Now for some Olympics sport

:43:28.:43:38.
:43:38.:43:48.

Sorry, we could not resist it, it was the final of the BMX. Great

:43:48.:43:52.

Britain's Shanaze Reade was looking to right the wrongs of Beijing

:43:52.:43:56.

Wenxiu crashed at in the final. And for Liam Phillips it was a chance

:43:56.:44:04.

to improve on his 2008 quarter- final. -- when she crashed out in

:44:04.:44:09.

the final. This is fast and furious and high-energy. It is one of the

:44:09.:44:13.

only action sports to make the summer Olympics programme. Do not

:44:13.:44:18.

look away because anything can happen. Ladies and gentlemen, this

:44:18.:44:28.
:44:28.:44:32.

It is a fantastic start. They are showing everyone a clean pair of

:44:32.:44:39.

heels. The Olympic velodrome behind a has

:44:40.:44:44.

already proved a happy hunting ground for Team GB and here at the

:44:44.:44:50.

BMX track, Britain's hopes are high. They rest on Shanaze Reade and Liam

:44:50.:44:54.

Phillips. Cometh the hour, cometh the woman,

:44:54.:45:04.
:45:04.:45:06.

Shanaze Reade. Today is finals and understand. The top three go to the

:45:06.:45:12.

finals. Liam Phillips was looking really good for such Shanaze Reade,

:45:12.:45:17.

I'm sure she will be one of the top once. It is mental confidence and

:45:17.:45:22.

belief that you will make that turn first, you will not hesitate and

:45:22.:45:28.

you will not give way. This is the first of the three runs.

:45:28.:45:31.

Heat one is the semi-finals, one where Shanaze Reade it is important

:45:31.:45:41.
:45:41.:45:51.

Nice, easy, finish straight. first of the men's semi-finals.

:45:51.:46:01.
:46:01.:46:02.

Expect a big roar here. Liam Phillips. He has gone down. If oh,

:46:02.:46:12.
:46:12.:46:16.

massive, massive crash! Liam safely through. The second of heat one.

:46:16.:46:26.
:46:26.:46:31.

Another great start for Shanaze. Neck and neck down the last

:46:31.:46:40.

straight. Smart riding there by Filippidis. And the third race of

:46:40.:46:48.

the semi-finals. -- smart riding there by Phillips. As Liam Phillips

:46:48.:46:58.
:46:58.:47:00.

makes his way up into third she can her if she wants. So, Liam Phillips

:47:00.:47:09.

has done enough. Looking good for the British riders. And then in

:47:09.:47:16.

lane one, she has been in this position before in Beijing. Shanaze

:47:16.:47:20.

on the inside but coasting at the back. She is getting caught in

:47:20.:47:29.

traffic. Bitter disappointment for Shanaze Reade. Today's schedule has

:47:29.:47:34.

been pretty hard with back-to-back laps. I have just tried to stay

:47:34.:47:41.

focused and do my best. Today it just wasn't to be. The gate is down

:47:41.:47:44.

and it is a fantastic start for Liam Phillips. Liam Phillips in

:47:44.:47:54.

bronze... Liam Phillips is down! Maris Strombergs is a double

:47:54.:48:00.

Olympic medallist. The best start of my life. That is what you aim to

:48:00.:48:04.

do at the Olympics but you cannot compete with them if you make a

:48:04.:48:10.

mistake. So, sadly no a British medal on two wheels today, but

:48:10.:48:13.

hopefully they have inspired a new generation to take up this exciting

:48:13.:48:23.
:48:23.:48:25.

Down there at the BMX, they have more medics to than at any other

:48:25.:48:34.

sport, over 24 stop and over half of them are anaesthetists. Brittle.

:48:34.:48:40.

-- brutal. Yes. You see some of those crashes. I saw a girl

:48:40.:48:47.

crawling because she couldn't walk and she was concussed today. Not

:48:47.:48:51.

the best performance today for Shanaze Reade. She looked boxed-in

:48:51.:48:58.

as well. The start seems to be integral as well? Yes. And she had

:48:58.:49:07.

a higher frequency than usual. fan? I liked the BMX when I was

:49:08.:49:17.

little. They look like they have the smallest bricks, though! But it

:49:17.:49:25.

is so recent. No such thing back before 1984. Absolutely not! But it

:49:25.:49:29.

really is exciting to have something like this now. For

:49:30.:49:34.

youngsters can do can recognise this. And there are all having a

:49:34.:49:44.

global stock -- the youngsters. -- and they are all having a go.

:49:44.:49:49.

like boxing. I think every sport is dangerous. An element of it. And

:49:49.:49:54.

that is what drives us. sometimes we play to save him. We

:49:54.:50:00.

have to get out there and have a go. Don't stand in the wake of Tessa's

:50:00.:50:07.

javelin! Today, Britain's hockey team met

:50:07.:50:13.

New Zealand in the bronze-medal match. Could they get the heavy-

:50:13.:50:23.
:50:23.:50:38.

corner. Yes! Perfect delivery from Kate Walsh. 1-0 for Great Britain

:50:38.:50:48.
:50:48.:50:48.

and thoroughly deserved. Another penalty corner. Crista Cullen.

:50:48.:50:51.

Keeping the ball low but enough height off the ground to make it

:50:51.:50:59.

awkward for the goalkeeper. Another penalty corner! So upright. She has

:50:59.:51:08.

exposed both of her feet. And she will take the corner. Touched in!

:51:08.:51:14.

On the post! Absolutely brilliant! Brilliant control by Sarah Thomas,

:51:14.:51:23.

and that is what it means. And this is what it means to the Duchess of

:51:23.:51:28.

Cambridge. They have come here and shown real character and produced a

:51:28.:51:33.

really excellent performance. have always known that the hurt we

:51:33.:51:38.

have been through in the last 48 hours and there was no way we were

:51:38.:51:42.

going to leave with nothing today. So to get this today was such a

:51:42.:51:48.

reward. We have trained hard and we know each other inside out. We came

:51:48.:51:51.

to his game knowing we were ready and the best-prepared we could be

:51:51.:51:56.

and we have come away... We knew we were not leaving that pitch without

:51:56.:52:06.
:52:06.:52:17.

OK, and here they are! Great Britain's Olympic bronze medal-

:52:17.:52:22.

winning team lining up for us outside the studio. What an

:52:22.:52:30.

incredible achievement. And the captain here, K Walsh. After that

:52:30.:52:33.

semi-final, could you have ever imagined the feeling of elation you

:52:33.:52:37.

have now? I knew the girls would do everything to make sure they got

:52:37.:52:41.

over that semi-final to be prepared for the bronze medal match and we

:52:41.:52:47.

have no doubt we would go home with a medal. A but the emotions, the

:52:47.:52:52.

swinging up-and-down, the tears the other night, and look at you now?

:52:52.:52:56.

think it just shows how professional we are and with sport,

:52:56.:53:03.

you have the highs and lows. will you take this lot with you?

:53:03.:53:09.

The support in the stadium has been wonderful! Unbelievable! 16,000

:53:09.:53:14.

people every time we walked out, shouting and chanting for us. It

:53:14.:53:19.

made a huge difference and it was amazing for them to be here for us

:53:19.:53:23.

tonight. It is so special for any athlete performing at a British

:53:23.:53:33.
:53:33.:53:33.

Olympics. 20 years since for Britain's women have brought back a

:53:33.:53:37.

medal with a hockey. How awe- inspiring is that? Is it has been

:53:37.:53:46.

so awe-inspiring for me and I hope it will be for everybody else.

:53:46.:53:50.

woman have done so well. Congratulations. Give them a big

:53:50.:53:59.

cheer! Thank you so much for coming down. They can go off and celebrate.

:53:59.:54:04.

And we should tell you that Holland won their gold medal, beating

:54:04.:54:10.

Argentina. Let's go down to Weymouth, because

:54:10.:54:20.
:54:20.:54:20.

yesterday there was no wind. Could the men and women unhook upgrade to

:54:20.:54:29.

gold? -- cut the men and women upgrade? -- could the men and

:54:29.:54:39.
:54:39.:54:50.

The atmosphere is electric and there is Australia. It is the

:54:50.:54:58.

British team who have the stronger start. I am with Stuart's mum, and

:54:58.:55:07.

how are you coping? Terribly! is a boat between them and the

:55:07.:55:12.

Australians. The tension is almost unbearable. Everybody has their

:55:12.:55:20.

binoculars out. It is so, so close. The British team have gained.

:55:20.:55:26.

last lap, it could not be tied up. They have got to put a boat between

:55:26.:55:32.

themselves and the Australians. is gold number three for Australia.

:55:32.:55:39.

Great Britain, a superb competition. Olympic silver for Great Britain.

:55:39.:55:46.

John, it was not gold but your boy has Dom prowled? Absolutely! It is

:55:46.:55:56.
:55:56.:56:05.

is done up here, and it is not gold but there is plenty of time. We are

:56:05.:56:11.

young boys and we will be coming back. The second of the day's

:56:11.:56:20.

medals deciders were getting out on the water. The British team have

:56:20.:56:25.

had a great start. They had boats around them so they had to go left

:56:25.:56:35.
:56:35.:56:37.

and now what is just a case of which side is going. It is London

:56:37.:56:44.

Olympic gold for the New Zealand team. Olympic silver for Hannah

:56:44.:56:50.

Mills and Saskia Clark. We have had a wicked 18 months. When we started

:56:51.:56:56.

sailing, we put everything in, so to come away with a metal, it has

:56:56.:57:03.

been up and down and a wear. We have had a wicked time! -- and a

:57:03.:57:10.

away. So, double silver delight for

:57:10.:57:14.

Britain's sailors on the last day of the regatta. The party will last

:57:14.:57:24.
:57:24.:57:26.

Well done to the 470s. My heart has just about got back to normal. But

:57:26.:57:31.

let's go downstairs because they are still partying there! The

:57:31.:57:36.

hockey girls! We may go down there tonight, so get your party gear on.

:57:36.:57:42.

That is for you, Ian! The sailing concludes tomorrow. Britain have

:57:42.:57:51.

won five medals, including Ben Ainslie's gold. Australia have had

:57:51.:57:59.

great success but their success there has masked not such a good

:57:59.:58:06.

performance overall. Sydney 2000 - Cathy Freeman's run

:58:06.:58:13.

United a whole nation. The Aussie swim squad established

:58:13.:58:19.

them as a global force. I cannot believe it! What a God he

:58:19.:58:25.

is! And the world took notice. In the medal table and again in Athens,

:58:25.:58:35.
:58:35.:58:36.

punching way above the weight of were being exported across the

:58:36.:58:41.

sports market. So what has happened to the Aussies in 2012? Gone are

:58:41.:58:48.

the days when they will do pool. Many must have thought the medal

:58:48.:58:57.

table looked upside-down. There are at and downs and unfortunately, we

:58:57.:59:06.

seem to be on a downpours stop -- there are ups. -- we seem to be on

:59:06.:59:12.

a down. There has been a huge amount of soul-searching in the

:59:12.:59:16.

Aussie press this week. Questions over how much money is being

:59:16.:59:21.

ploughed into sport. Just 12 years after Sid be hosted the Olympic

:59:21.:59:27.

Games. Some are even stronger. -- after Sydney hosted the Olympic

:59:27.:59:37.
:59:37.:59:43.

Games. Swimming has been a disaster. This -- the swimming bosses had

:59:43.:59:48.

home early to investigate. Australia Jim Reid dominates at the

:59:48.:59:52.

Olympic Games. Maybe it is this simple - other countries have

:59:52.:59:59.

caught up. Oh I think Australia is improving but other countries are

:59:59.:00:05.

improving fast. In many cases, may have employed our coaches. Britain

:00:05.:00:10.

had some wonderful small boat medals, and who coaches them?

:00:10.:00:18.

Australia. The Olympic time-trial coach is being coached by an

:00:18.:00:23.

Australian. It seems much of their top coaching talent has been

:00:23.:00:28.

poached by other nations. We shed our nation -- our knowledge with

:00:28.:00:34.

Great Britain and they are using it wisely. -- we shared our knowledge.

:00:34.:00:40.

A loss of coaches and inquiries already underway. Already they have

:00:40.:00:45.

slid out of the Olympics superpower league. Team GB must make sure that

:00:45.:00:54.

12 years from now, they will be at I think one of the important

:00:54.:00:59.

reasons we want to look at this because in three Olympics time, we

:00:59.:01:03.

want to grow one our performances and clearly there has been a

:01:03.:01:07.

retraction in terms of Australia. If you put medals on the table,

:01:07.:01:12.

there has been a slipping down the table. I thought I would have to

:01:12.:01:16.

learn all of this Yorkshire lingo because at one stage Yorkshire was

:01:16.:01:20.

ahead of us on the medal tally. There are lessons to be learnt here.

:01:21.:01:25.

I think everyone has assumed our programmes are better than they are

:01:25.:01:28.

as well. I think people have given us too much credit for programmes

:01:28.:01:33.

they think exist which do not really. Like identification of

:01:33.:01:36.

young athletes, I do not think we are doing a job which is good

:01:36.:01:41.

enough in that area. But looking at the last Olympics, going from

:01:41.:01:46.

Sydney, Athens and Beijing, we have 47 gold medals in those Olympic

:01:46.:01:51.

Games which is more than a third of our entire total in history. We are

:01:51.:01:55.

now 17 at this Olympics. I think we have seen a bit of the benefit from

:01:56.:02:00.

an increase in funding leading to the Sydney Olympics and that has

:02:00.:02:03.

flowed on to Athens and potentially a little bit of that went into

:02:03.:02:07.

Beijing. But I think we have stepped back. I think we used some

:02:07.:02:11.

sneaky images there because I know some of those athletes, the

:02:11.:02:15.

difference between agony and joy is quite close. And some of those

:02:16.:02:20.

athletes were happy with winning a silver medal. Are you saying that

:02:20.:02:25.

is a bad thing Oregon thing or OK? It does not seem to be the Aussie

:02:25.:02:30.

way. We seem to be used of the win at all costs. What has been

:02:30.:02:34.

terrible is when an athlete has been criticised for winning a

:02:34.:02:38.

silver medal. That is completely not right. Especially when an

:02:38.:02:42.

athlete has gone above what they expected. We are saying silver is

:02:42.:02:47.

not good enough. I think what has happened in Australia is we have

:02:47.:02:50.

become too accustomed to being too successful and assuming that these

:02:50.:02:54.

results will happen. A lot of hard work goes on to these results and

:02:54.:02:58.

we should be more appreciative. realise what special times they

:02:58.:03:04.

have. I do not want to embarrass you and say you were part of that

:03:04.:03:08.

in 20021004, exceptional athletes come along once in a lifetime and

:03:08.:03:14.

you were happy to have those kind of figures. We really have to look

:03:14.:03:16.

at what do you do for the individual athlete with their coach

:03:16.:03:20.

and get back to those kind of basics. One of the things I have

:03:20.:03:24.

liked with Team GB's programme is being able to allocate funds

:03:24.:03:29.

directly into something which is quite specific. Somebody being

:03:29.:03:33.

accountable for that. I think we have layers of bureaucracy in sport

:03:33.:03:37.

which detract from where some of the performances could go. I think

:03:37.:03:40.

there are lessons to be learned in the Australian model and what has

:03:40.:03:46.

happened. For Team GB looker what it does in the future. You have had

:03:46.:03:50.

Sally Pearson and Anna Meares, the Golden girls on the track cycling

:03:50.:03:54.

and Sally over the hurdles, rowing has been a bit disappointing,

:03:54.:03:59.

hasn't it and arguably, track cycling as well. And swimming. This

:03:59.:04:05.

is the big one. There have been some disappointing results. Within

:04:05.:04:09.

those results they have been some things where you go, maybe we were

:04:09.:04:14.

unlucky. Jack is winning the big disappointment for you? It probably

:04:14.:04:19.

is. And it is probably the disappointment for GB as well.

:04:19.:04:23.

disappointment is and the results. I'm not disappointed with the team.

:04:23.:04:29.

I am proud of the team. Especially in Australian swimming, our team

:04:29.:04:34.

actually is more than one competition. We have a history in

:04:34.:04:37.

this team and we will come back from this result. We will be

:04:37.:04:42.

working out exactly how to do it. We need you to be good, Tessa,

:04:42.:04:50.

because we like that competition, that Antipodean cousin we enjoy

:04:50.:04:56.

having a contest against. Yes, because there has been USA, USA,

:04:56.:05:01.

USA, we like having the Aussies in the competition and Team GB as well.

:05:01.:05:09.

We miss you, come back. Are you still swimming? I think the

:05:09.:05:13.

important conversation which needs to take place in Australia now and

:05:13.:05:17.

what needs to happen after the Games here in the UK is basically,

:05:17.:05:22.

what role will government play in sport? Icy government's role in

:05:22.:05:26.

sport is looking as putting as much money as possible into sport and

:05:27.:05:31.

across a number of spots and look at it as being one of the greatest

:05:31.:05:35.

preventative measures of decreasing the future health bill. I think

:05:35.:05:38.

over the next few weeks, one of the legacies here will be pressure on

:05:38.:05:43.

government to make sure that happens. Engage these kids who was

:05:43.:05:50.

so enthused. I totally agree. move on to taekwondo now. Lutalo

:05:50.:05:55.

Muhammad was selected ahead of world champion Aaron Cook completed

:05:55.:06:05.

today. Reached the quarter-finals. He was sadly beaten in the quarter-

:06:05.:06:11.

final by Nicolas Garcia Hemme from Spain. He then won the repechage to

:06:11.:06:21.
:06:21.:06:30.

set up a fight for bronze. Here is 21-year-old Lutalo Muhammad from up

:06:30.:06:34.

the road in Walthamstow, if he can win a bronze here, Britain will

:06:34.:06:40.

have doubled its medal tally in the space of 24 hours. He calls himself

:06:41.:06:44.

an east London have. This is his part of the world, doing what he

:06:44.:06:51.

does best, doing what he does very well. First 30 seconds and he has

:06:51.:06:57.

caught the crown of the Armenian. Lutalo Muhammad is 4-1 up against

:06:57.:07:04.

the Armenian. He has gone for a big one there! He has got the big one.

:07:04.:07:09.

That might be costly for Armenia and very profitable for Great

:07:09.:07:15.

Britain. Lutalo Muhammad is less than two minutes away from claiming

:07:15.:07:20.

a bronze medal. Five miles from home, five miles from Walthamstow,

:07:20.:07:26.

they are cheering his name in the Olympic arena. The other man in the

:07:26.:07:31.

great taekwondo selection story has the last word and it is set in

:07:31.:07:41.
:07:41.:07:42.

I am really great full and happy for this opportunity. I was able to

:07:43.:07:47.

come away with a medal. It is unfortunate that it was not God but

:07:47.:07:51.

I am grateful that I managed to get a medal. The crowd's reception was

:07:51.:07:56.

fantastic. The crowd was tremendous. I am a London boy so it makes it

:07:56.:08:01.

more sweeter. I really wanted to deliver and bring a gold medal home.

:08:01.:08:07.

I am happy I was able to get the bronze and excite the crowd a bit.

:08:07.:08:12.

Congratulations to Lutalo Muhammad won his bronze medal. There he is

:08:12.:08:17.

on the rostrum. All the furore which happened about Aaron Cook not

:08:17.:08:22.

been selected, it was nothing to do with Muhammad but it must have

:08:22.:08:27.

added pressure to his shoulders. There he is wearing his bronze, a

:08:27.:08:33.

great sight to see. The bronze medallist from Beijing, Sarah

:08:34.:08:38.

Stevenson, was sadly beaten in the first-round. Other news, Tom Bailey

:08:38.:08:43.

has qualified for tomorrow's ten- metre platform finals. He got

:08:43.:08:47.

through in 15th place and sadly his synchro partner Peter Waterfield

:08:47.:08:52.

missed out. Let's go back to boxing. Earlier,

:08:52.:08:58.

we saw Anthony Joshua reached the final. Let's see how the other

:08:58.:09:02.

finals went concerning our magnificent seven. First, we will

:09:02.:09:12.
:09:12.:09:12.

seek bantamweight Luke Campbell. He has been in great form. He was well

:09:12.:09:18.

fancied against his opponent who serves in the Japanese army. He did

:09:18.:09:23.

not waste time to assert his authority. He powered through to

:09:23.:09:32.

win the first round. He took the third round to win by an impressive

:09:32.:09:36.

20 points to 11. Gold or silver is now guaranteed.

:09:36.:09:46.
:09:46.:09:53.

He in the final he will face Jonjo What a fight in prospect. What an

:09:53.:09:57.

electric atmosphere that promises to be. We saw the Irish with Katie

:09:57.:10:03.

Taylor. That will be big. We know the Irish can make noises and the

:10:03.:10:09.

crowd will go crazy. You have a British fighter verses and Irish

:10:09.:10:15.

fighter. I had seen both fighters. They have faced each other before.

:10:15.:10:23.

Call it. If I have to call it I give it to the British fighter,

:10:23.:10:27.

Luke Campbell. He is a good friend of mine. I used to being amateurs

:10:27.:10:32.

within back in the day. He is a class fighter, strong and he had a

:10:32.:10:37.

great performance today. Both fighters are good. There is

:10:37.:10:42.

something tellingly that Luke Campbell will take the fight.

:10:42.:10:47.

good. Next up is welterweight Fred Evans.

:10:47.:10:53.

Standing in Fred's way and a shot that the gold is the reigning world

:10:53.:10:58.

champion, Taras Shelestyuk of the Ukraine. That would be a tough

:10:58.:11:02.

fight for Fred. Reputations did not intimidate him. He got off to a

:11:02.:11:08.

great start winning 4-1, then it was 4-4. We will join it with Fred

:11:08.:11:18.
:11:18.:11:21.

in blue at the start of the last go in this welterweight semi-finals.

:11:21.:11:25.

As Fred Evans was about to move towards the centre of the boxing

:11:25.:11:31.

ring, you head encouragement being issued by his coach days away. He

:11:31.:11:35.

stands three minutes away from a place in the Olympic final full

:11:35.:11:39.

stark Taras Shelestyuk, the reigning world champion, the world

:11:39.:11:44.

number one and tournament number one seed is sure to mount a furious

:11:44.:11:49.

rally, in an effort to book his place in the gold medal bout. Evans

:11:49.:11:57.

is being encouraged by the capacity crowd once again. The tempo set by

:11:57.:12:02.

Evans has suited him down to the grant. He has got to keep it going

:12:02.:12:07.

now. He got caught with a shot their earlier but he must respond

:12:07.:12:12.

to his corner. He is fresh enough to do this. He has got to step on

:12:12.:12:17.

the gas. That is better. And a minute gone in this third and final

:12:17.:12:23.

round. Taras Shelestyuk continuing to find a way inside to land his

:12:23.:12:27.

own shot. A beautiful combination from Evans, finished with a

:12:27.:12:33.

corkscrew right hand. Excellent work from the young man from Wales.

:12:33.:12:39.

Taras Shelestyuk is closing his man down. Evans is remaining

:12:39.:12:44.

concentrated in this third round to date. He was in the third round

:12:44.:12:47.

against crustier Clayton in the quarter-finals when he appeared to

:12:47.:12:57.
:12:57.:12:58.

switch off and which of -- Custio Clayton. That is better from Evans.

:12:58.:13:03.

He has got to keep the movement going. The gumshield came out there.

:13:03.:13:08.

He has got to keep the movement going here. That creates that

:13:08.:13:14.

elusive target. Then he must stand momentarily and fire two or three

:13:14.:13:19.

shots. That will keep the referee happy. The referee will want him to

:13:19.:13:24.

punch. Taras Shelestyuk chasing shadows as a new movement of Fred

:13:24.:13:28.

Evans continues to leave out of punching range and slightly

:13:28.:13:32.

bamboozled as we approached the final minute of this third round.

:13:32.:13:42.
:13:42.:13:47.

Fred Evans first walked into a concentration or getting ragged. He

:13:47.:13:57.
:13:57.:14:08.

must stay in the moment and remain right hook. Come on, Fred, keep

:14:08.:14:13.

working, you can do this, you can beat the world number one. What a

:14:13.:14:17.

momentous victory this would be but it is not in the back by a stretch

:14:17.:14:21.

of the imagination next. Taras Shelestyuk will continue to push

:14:21.:14:30.

until the final bell. Fred Evans must remain focused. The crowd are

:14:30.:14:34.

on hand here beginning to count down the closing seconds of this

:14:35.:14:40.

third and final round. As the bell sounds, Fred Evans raises his hand

:14:40.:14:44.

in celebration because he feels he has done enough and surely he has

:14:44.:14:49.

done enough to book his place in the welterweight gold medal bout

:14:49.:14:55.

here at the Games of the 30th Olympiad. Ladies and gentlemen, the

:14:55.:15:00.

winner by a score of 11 points to 10, in the blue corner, it

:15:00.:15:06.

representing Great Britain, Fred Evans. He has done it. Great

:15:06.:15:10.

Britain's Fred Evans has booked his place in the 69 kilogram

:15:10.:15:20.
:15:20.:15:22.

welterweight final, the reigning I had a game-plan. I thought I had

:15:22.:15:29.

a point to prove. Stuck to my game plan and I went good. Oldham have

:15:29.:15:32.

to see the Olympics and it has always been a dream to see if I can

:15:32.:15:42.

get there. -- are old enough. will face the Kazakhstan me in the

:15:42.:15:49.

final. Also in the ring, Anthony Ogogo up

:15:49.:15:54.

against the bronze winner at the World Championships last year.

:15:54.:15:58.

Anthony had a really good first round and the two boxes could not

:15:58.:16:07.

be split in the first round. -- boxers. He led 9-6 going into the

:16:07.:16:14.

third round but in the final round, he could not get back into it. But

:16:14.:16:20.

no doubt, proud of his efforts. Reading him on Twitter, you said he

:16:20.:16:30.
:16:30.:16:30.

gave it absolutely everything. -- he said.

:16:31.:16:40.
:16:41.:16:42.

And sadly, Michael also found his Cuban opponent too much. End of a

:16:42.:16:48.

very tight match. Quite a few appeals for this one. -- another

:16:48.:16:52.

very tight match. Are you happy the decisions were as correct as they

:16:53.:16:58.

should be? There are some decisions that have not gone to whoever

:16:58.:17:07.

should have won. Now it is computer scoring, half the time the judges

:17:07.:17:10.

don't score and it is within a second that they have to press the

:17:10.:17:18.

buzzer. Not an exact science? Exactly. There have been a lot of

:17:18.:17:22.

arguments about it and there are talking about changing it. Great

:17:22.:17:27.

Britain could win three boxing golds here. Australia have never

:17:27.:17:37.

won bop a boxing gold. -- have never won. This man wants to be a

:17:37.:17:43.

Yorkshireman! I will show you the medal table as we go through. Five

:17:43.:17:53.
:17:53.:18:02.

medals for Team GB today. No gold can do the taekwondo there. And,

:18:02.:18:07.

Tessa, you can do the girls. People might be disappointed we have not

:18:07.:18:12.

got their faces individually but just putting them on. A lovely shot

:18:12.:18:20.

of them celebrating. And Anthony Ogogo on the bronze. And silvers

:18:20.:18:30.
:18:30.:18:31.

for our 470 sailors. Anyway you can find his spot. Stop! They are old!

:18:31.:18:41.

Phew! And Stuart as well. While Tess is doing that, she might be

:18:41.:18:47.

here tomorrow. Thank you so much. Thank you for coming. Ian, it has

:18:47.:18:54.

Gabby Logan and her guests reflect on the late night action and the stories of the day in the company of some of the headline makers. Sixteen medals have been decided, and the stage is set for a rousing final weekend.
