LineFromTo

Now we are going to be velodrome. This is what is coming up. We have

:00:13.:00:17.

three gold medallists in action today. Jason Kenny will be first up

:00:17.:00:22.

in the semi-final of the individual sprint. We also have 20-year-old

:00:22.:00:26.

Laura Trott who won her first gold medal two days ago in the team

:00:26.:00:34.

pursuit. And also it Vicky Pendleton in the sprint. To show

:00:34.:00:42.

jumping is on BBC Three. We will see the gold medal decided.

:00:42.:00:46.

On the red button, the women's boxing continues. The quarter-final

:00:46.:00:56.

action. Also coming up later on, Basketball. It is China against

:00:56.:00:58.

Great Britain. Great Britain are trying to come back after the

:00:58.:01:02.

defeat against Australia. We are heading straight over to the

:01:02.:01:05.

velodrome. It is the moment of truth for Jason Kenny because he

:01:05.:01:10.

was the man who came in instead of Chris Hoy for this event. Let's

:01:10.:01:16.

find out more from Jake. Thank you. Can you a Maj-Gen

:01:16.:01:24.

Jamaica been told they had to choose one man to compete for them

:01:24.:01:27.

in the Sprint or the Americans having to choose between Michael

:01:27.:01:34.

Phelps and Ryan Lochte? That is the position that we were put into

:01:34.:01:38.

which -- because of the new rules which say you have to have run - No

:01:38.:01:43.

1 rider per country. The decision was Jason Kenny. He has to prove it

:01:43.:01:53.
:01:53.:01:58.

He is the quiet man on the team who is looking to create a roar in the

:01:58.:02:04.

velodrome later tonight. Victoria Pendleton is back on the

:02:04.:02:06.

bike again today after demonstrating she is in the form of

:02:07.:02:14.

higher life. And fresh from smashing of the world record and

:02:14.:02:20.

picking up gold in the women's team pursuits, Laura trot looks to match

:02:20.:02:27.

Ed Clancy and take a medal in the omnium. This is the way the

:02:27.:02:37.
:02:37.:02:46.

You must stick around for the women's omnium elimination race

:02:46.:02:51.

because that is a real crowd- pleaser. Alongside me once again

:02:51.:02:57.

his Jamie Staff and Mark Cavendish. Jamie picked up a medal in 2008 and

:02:57.:03:00.

Mark is the current sports Personality of the Year. A strange

:03:00.:03:04.

team for the cycling teams to have to make but I guess if you have to

:03:04.:03:08.

choose between Jason Kenny and Chris Hoy, that is not a bad

:03:08.:03:14.

position to be in, is it? really as they are the best in the

:03:14.:03:18.

world. It could be easy to say at least we have the two best to

:03:18.:03:21.

choose from but it makes for a difficult decision. Chris Hoy is

:03:21.:03:25.

the reigning champion, Jason Kenny is up and coming and could be

:03:25.:03:30.

champion now, will be champion, I believe. It is a bit of a strange

:03:30.:03:38.

decision. Gethin it is to give everybody a chance. I do not think

:03:38.:03:43.

anybody will have a chance at Jason! That is probably the point,

:03:43.:03:52.

you have to leave the best sprinters in the stands. Your man

:03:52.:03:56.

that you coached would not be there if it was not for these new rules?

:03:56.:04:02.

I can see the arguments and against. Personally, I think it is wrong to

:04:02.:04:05.

have one person representing each nation but those are the rules.

:04:05.:04:10.

There has obviously been a lot of thought coming into this for Team

:04:10.:04:15.

GB, who to pick. Speaking to them at the World Championships a few

:04:15.:04:19.

months ago, they were unsure. They are gathering so much information

:04:19.:04:24.

and training. Speaking to the coaches, he made it clear that

:04:24.:04:29.

Jason was the athlete to pick. That would have been based on data

:04:29.:04:33.

produced by the riders. I think Chris was a bit relieved. There is

:04:33.:04:39.

a lot of pressure for him to come here and get three golds again.

:04:39.:04:43.

Following his Twitter account, he seems pretty relaxed and calm. He

:04:43.:04:48.

wants to get on with the keirin. He is looking forward to that. There

:04:48.:04:53.

is no bad feelings. He was pretty happy with it. The decision was

:04:53.:04:56.

Jason Kenny and he has made it through now to the semi-finals.

:04:56.:05:00.

This is how the semi-final looks. You have to say he has probably had

:05:00.:05:07.

the easier semi-final. Jamie might disagree because he has coached his

:05:07.:05:13.

rival! This is the best of three. Their race against each other three

:05:13.:05:21.

times. This happened moments ago in the velodrome, let's join Hugh

:05:21.:05:31.
:05:31.:05:41.

from Trinidad. He is a real crowd- pleaser. There is the salute. He is

:05:41.:05:46.

21 years of age and he is up against Jason Kenny of Great

:05:46.:05:56.
:05:56.:06:03.

sprint. Listen to the raw. A silver medallist at the World

:06:03.:06:09.

Championships. A fantastic qualifying time. 8.7, absolutely a

:06:09.:06:16.

fire at the moment. Philip is a new man on the scene. Boy, has he been

:06:16.:06:22.

sprinting well. And he is a real showman as well, Philip. He has one

:06:22.:06:30.

or two salutes up his sleeve if he wins. I think he is really up

:06:30.:06:37.

against it here. Philip is coached by Janie staff but Kenny is the man

:06:37.:06:41.

of the moment. It was a very hard decision to decide but Kenny would

:06:41.:06:49.

get the sprint over Sir Chris Hoy. I think the selectors breathed a

:06:49.:06:55.

sigh of relief after he posted his qualifying time. They say a man

:06:55.:07:01.

with nothing to lose is a man to be feared. Jason Ken is showing a lot

:07:01.:07:08.

of respect for him. He is riding around the track and looking

:07:08.:07:13.

backwards, that is a fantastic skill. Just trying to confuse the

:07:13.:07:22.

opposition. Just bluff and counter bluff. Kenny looking backwards.

:07:22.:07:28.

Philip is the gold medal winner for the Pan-Am Sprint Championships but

:07:28.:07:32.

he is really up against it here. They are getting up against the

:07:32.:07:36.

sharp end of the first encounter and Kenny will take it off from the

:07:36.:07:42.

front. Kenny is starting to wind the gear up. Their approaching the

:07:42.:07:46.

back straight. Philip is being stretched to try and get up to the

:07:46.:07:51.

wheel of Jason Kelly. He will not do it. Chasing Kenny has ridden

:07:51.:07:58.

this magnificently and drawn first blood. 1-02 Jason Kenny. -- Jason

:07:59.:08:06.

Kenny has ridden this magnificently. Philip made a mistake there. He

:08:06.:08:13.

went higher and Jason Kenny said I am not coming with you.

:08:13.:08:19.

Unfortunately, Philip showed a little bit of experience there.

:08:19.:08:25.

That was the only opportunity he had there. He was drawn into that

:08:25.:08:30.

by Jason Kenny, trying to use the slipstreamed coming round. He could

:08:30.:08:37.

not get on terms. Very, very tactically astute, Jason Kenny. He

:08:37.:08:42.

commanded the race, controlled the race and delivered in majestic

:08:42.:08:49.

style to go one up. Good riding, just continue with that good form.

:08:49.:08:59.
:08:59.:09:01.

Jason Kenny wins heat one. Now we can move on to heat two. The

:09:01.:09:11.
:09:11.:09:14.

world champion is already out early. champion for this discipline. He

:09:14.:09:24.
:09:24.:09:25.

has been -- he is up against Shane Perkins. He has been a little bit

:09:25.:09:29.

off the pace in the world championships. He has come on

:09:29.:09:34.

tactically, Perkins, in the last 12 months. He is to be a rough

:09:34.:09:44.
:09:44.:09:58.

customer but now he is using his sprint. This brings together the

:09:58.:10:08.
:10:08.:10:10.

triple world champion, Gregory Bauge, nearest to us from France.

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

as was Philip. I think he will have to ride tactically in a straight

:10:31.:10:36.

track race. He cannot compete with the Frenchman. His tactics have

:10:36.:10:43.

really come on. He needs to stop him employing the steeper -- the

:10:44.:10:53.
:10:54.:10:55.

Super jump. He is approaching the straight. The early stage is always

:10:55.:11:03.

the preliminaries. Each rider tries to outwit the other. This is quite

:11:03.:11:13.
:11:13.:11:14.

a good speed. Shayne Perkins is watching Gregory Paul Shayne. --

:11:14.:11:21.

Bauge. Perkins has taken him armful stump he is starting to commit

:11:21.:11:29.

himself fully into the back straight. -- taken him up on. They

:11:29.:11:39.
:11:39.:11:46.

are shoulder to shoulder. Bauge Wins 1-0. I thought that with over

:11:46.:11:51.

a lap to go, Gregory poor shape would get more height. He was happy

:11:51.:12:01.
:12:01.:12:04.

to let Perkins dictate. -- Bauge. He sat on his shoulder all the way

:12:04.:12:11.

around the final bend. They are just inches from the white line.

:12:11.:12:16.

They are in excess of 40 miles an hour. The powerful shoulders and

:12:16.:12:23.

arms are keeping the line of the bike. The world champion goes up by

:12:23.:12:33.
:12:33.:12:34.

one here, in their first encounter. We are expecting them to meet in

:12:34.:12:40.

the final. Jason Kenny really is letting the selectors know they

:12:40.:12:50.

made the right decision. 10 seconds dead for the last 200 yesterday.

:12:50.:13:00.
:13:00.:13:00.

Today the same. He went from flat and he was not event accelerating

:13:00.:13:06.

and tell about 20 metres before. He did 10.1 and 10 yesterday closed up

:13:06.:13:16.
:13:16.:13:17.

he is on fire. It is going to be a really big task taking on Jason.

:13:17.:13:21.

Jason has more speed and more acceleration. I told him he needs

:13:21.:13:31.
:13:31.:13:31.

to play with him on the track and tried to keep him off guard. -- try.

:13:31.:13:38.

He was trying to confuse Jason a bit. What Kenny is doing, he is

:13:38.:13:44.

keeping him on his shoulder and looking back. It is pretty hard.

:13:44.:13:49.

For him to do that the entire way around the track, you are not

:13:49.:13:55.

giving him any chances to make a surprise attack. I think that Jason

:13:55.:14:02.

knows that. He is keeping a close eye on his opponent. They are

:14:02.:14:08.

playing around a bit. They want to keep the race short. You were

:14:08.:14:17.

telling him to keep an eye on Jason. In fact, it was role-reversal. You

:14:17.:14:23.

pick a card before the race which turns into where you start. It will

:14:23.:14:30.

flip around in the next ride. We will see how he races Jason. At

:14:30.:14:39.

this point Macro, Jason Kenny is so much faster. It is not just the

:14:39.:14:45.

speed, he is a great tactical rider and getting better all the time.

:14:45.:14:50.

Absolutely. He was young in the last Olympics and has had four

:14:50.:14:58.

ideas to ride here. There were three laps of the track and most of

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

it was with his chin on his shoulder. He can retaliate straight

:15:08.:15:17.

away. We will see him trying later in the next ride. Well done, Jason!

:15:17.:15:25.

So far so good. He is not the only British rider to have a gold medal.

:15:25.:15:29.

Laura Trott is riding in the women's omnium. This is how it

:15:29.:15:34.

looks. The first event is flying around the track as fast as they

:15:34.:15:39.

can. It is the flying lap. That is followed by five further events.

:15:39.:15:43.

Stay with us through to the elimination race because it really

:15:43.:15:50.

is quite special. Let's see how she gets on in her first event. We join

:15:50.:15:56.

her with three to go. We are looking at the world champion. This

:15:57.:16:02.

is Laura Trott from Great Britain. The 20-year-old, who is getting a

:16:02.:16:08.

massive Ovation. She has one got medal in her pocket and that came

:16:09.:16:17.

from the team spent. She is getting ready to post her time. She has to

:16:17.:16:25.

be top three. That is what she is looking for. She is trying to break

:16:25.:16:31.

the time of Sanchez. But she has got off very quickly. The crowd is

:16:31.:16:37.

lifting her around. Five thousandths of a second shy of the

:16:38.:16:47.
:16:48.:16:48.

time of Sanchez. Brilliant! She shaves by thousands of the time of

:16:48.:16:55.

Sanchez. Only two more competitors to Gove. The two together are not

:16:55.:17:02.

the best at this discipline. -- to go. Nearly half a second up on her

:17:02.:17:07.

time at the World Championships. I did not at expect her to get near

:17:07.:17:17.

the time of Sanchez. A very good time by Laura Trott. She is on fire,

:17:17.:17:24.

pin-sharp. Edmondson of Australia was first at the world's Inez and

:17:24.:17:34.

Laura Trott was second. -- at the World Championships. This is the

:17:34.:17:41.

penultimate competitive to their, Tara Whitten. She excels more in

:17:41.:17:48.

races such as the points and the pursuit. She is riding further

:17:48.:17:54.

around the track and she needs. She is already 0.2 of the pace. The

:17:54.:18:02.

Canadian is stopping the clock on a time of 14.5 to go 6th. That is the

:18:02.:18:07.

position she occupied in the flying lap at the World Championships. She

:18:08.:18:13.

needs every point she can grab. Perhaps not what she was hoping for.

:18:13.:18:23.
:18:23.:18:23.

I think she will be disappointed. She is in 6th position with one

:18:23.:18:31.

competitor to go. Sarah Hammer also not a fan of the flying lap.

:18:31.:18:36.

Generally slightly better than Tara Whitten. Looking at the final

:18:36.:18:41.

competitor to go, the opening discipline of the women's omnium.

:18:41.:18:47.

This is Sarah Hammer, at the 29- year-old American. Lookout for her

:18:47.:18:53.

when they come to the 3000 metre pursuit. She got the bronze medal

:18:53.:18:59.

in the World Championships, which took place in April. Coming up to

:18:59.:19:05.

the line. Not particularly a specialist in the one lap sprint.

:19:05.:19:10.

Will she challenged the time of Laura Trott? Let's have a look at

:19:10.:19:19.

the split. No comeback in this one. She went backwards. What a great

:19:19.:19:24.

start for Laura Trott! A real positive start for the world

:19:24.:19:34.
:19:34.:19:35.

champion. She has scored one point. She does not really have a weakness

:19:35.:19:37.

in this disciplined - B omnium. To take that sculp was really

:19:37.:19:45.

something. Youth should -- you could not have a better start than

:19:45.:19:53.

that. We will see more of Sarah Hammer in the pursuit and the

:19:53.:19:59.

distance events. A positive start for Laura Trott, the world champion.

:19:59.:20:09.

She wins the opening discipline in convincing style. There is the

:20:09.:20:14.

result of the one lap time trial. You can see Laura Trott ahead of

:20:14.:20:24.
:20:24.:20:31.

the rest of the competitors. Not the first time we have heard

:20:31.:20:39.

the Velodrome going wild. Margins are not much finer than one

:20:39.:20:46.

thousandth of a second. thousandth of a second is not a lot.

:20:46.:20:55.

It is not about time, it is about position. It is in her favour.

:20:55.:21:02.

Sanchez is a specialist sprinter. She does the sprint in AQIM. Laura

:21:02.:21:12.
:21:12.:21:13.

Trott has beaten her. She is an Endurance rider. How much on the

:21:13.:21:21.

track is a thousandth of a second? Not a lot. It makes it dramatic as

:21:21.:21:27.

well. Laura Trott seems to have a real punch in us that you need for

:21:27.:21:37.
:21:37.:21:40.

these kind of events. -- punchiness. She was identified as a sprinter

:21:40.:21:46.

but she was pushed more down the route of Endurance. She will have a

:21:46.:21:52.

really quick acceleration. Her first split was the fastest. She

:21:52.:21:56.

was a bit behind Sanchez on the second. The endurance element

:21:57.:22:02.

probably helped on the final stretch. Just to remind you that

:22:02.:22:08.

Laura Trott is an expert up against the clock. That is next up for her.

:22:08.:22:13.

Now from one British success to another. The second round in the

:22:13.:22:23.
:22:23.:22:36.

first semi-final of the men's sprint. Jason Kenny and Gregory

:22:36.:22:46.
:22:46.:22:52.

be proud. His opponent is from Trinidad. -- at the crowd. He is a

:22:52.:23:00.

flamboyant rider but has quite a challenge ahead of him. In terms of

:23:00.:23:10.

experience, dace and Kenny is way ahead of the Trinidadian. -- Jason

:23:10.:23:20.
:23:20.:23:21.

Kenny. They are away for heat two. If Philip wants to take this to a

:23:21.:23:28.

decider, he has to take this. Tactics are the only chance. He is

:23:28.:23:33.

in the right place to deploy it any tactics he can think of. Holding

:23:33.:23:41.

him at the front and stalling him for as long as possible. Kenny has

:23:41.:23:46.

been second in Beijing and has not dropped off that kind of form in

:23:47.:23:52.

four years. He has tons of experience. One thing I will say

:23:52.:23:57.

about the Trinidadian, he is not fazed by reputations. He has

:23:57.:24:05.

nothing to lose. He has got further in the competition than he expected.

:24:05.:24:12.

It is almost as if they had won. He will do the best he can. Here goes

:24:12.:24:20.

Jason Kenny. Look at the acceleration! There was nearly a

:24:20.:24:26.

crash when Philip just flicked at but Kenny wrote it magnificently.

:24:26.:24:35.

Now it is all over. You are into the final. Brimming over with

:24:35.:24:41.

confidence. 10.1 for the closing 100. I am sure we will see that

:24:41.:24:48.

again on replay. He did not take his. The gas at all. He almost

:24:48.:24:58.
:24:58.:25:03.

ignored Philip. -- foot off. That little hook by Philip and I think

:25:03.:25:08.

the commissars would have frowned upon that. They do not have to be

:25:08.:25:14.

inside the last 200m. Once the sprint has started, you are not

:25:14.:25:18.

allowed to come out of your lane or endanger your competitors. Kenny

:25:18.:25:26.

would have been awarded that anyway. Kenny never flinched. He went

:25:26.:25:31.

around the long way and he is into the final, having disposed of the

:25:31.:25:41.
:25:41.:25:51.

for the next contest, you are looking here at heat two, raced two

:25:51.:25:56.

and out early and ready for business is Shane Perkins is off

:25:56.:26:04.

Australia. And also on track is the big powerful Frenchmen, Gregory

:26:04.:26:14.
:26:14.:26:14.

Bauge. Perkins has got nothing to lose. He might try and take the

:26:14.:26:19.

Frenchman by surprise which is what Kenny did at world championships.

:26:19.:26:23.

It nailed the Frenchman to the floor. It did not quite come off

:26:23.:26:31.

but it was so close. This is a race two of Pete two of the men's semi-

:26:31.:26:40.

final sprints. Gregory Bauge from France against Shane Perkins from

:26:40.:26:46.

Australia. Perkins is one down after the first race. We have got

:26:46.:26:52.

to work out what he can do? Being at the back is not the place where

:26:52.:26:57.

he will want to be. The Frenchman will just hold him. It is so much

:26:57.:27:05.

further to go around the outside. They ride at a fast pace around the

:27:06.:27:12.

banking, then accelerate, hold them on the shoulder in the bends. Bauge

:27:12.:27:17.

knows how to do that. Perkins has got to do something special, either

:27:17.:27:23.

take him by surprise with a long one or try and get in front. 10.3,

:27:23.:27:32.

the winning time in heat 1, race 1. That was 69 kilometres per hour. It

:27:32.:27:39.

is all about trying to outwit your opponents here. Could Perkins

:27:39.:27:45.

possibly take a scalp and go to the best of three. If they go to the

:27:45.:27:50.

best of three, we have seen that Bauge is slightly vulnerable.

:27:50.:27:55.

controlling this race now. It is hard to see the Frenchman being

:27:55.:28:00.

beaten. Perkins tries to go around the outside but the Frenchman will

:28:00.:28:08.

accelerate. As you can see, Perkin strives to get some more speed and

:28:08.:28:14.

height. Bauge matches him trying to keep him in position. Is Bauge

:28:14.:28:19.

happy leading this one out and will Perkins's be happy trying to race

:28:19.:28:23.

him from second will? The speed is beginning to lift. To it is being

:28:23.:28:31.

dictated at the moment. Bauge has got to try something here and he is

:28:31.:28:36.

falling into the hands of the French rider. Bauge has his hand on

:28:36.:28:44.

the tiller here. Can Perkins challenge? Here comes the challenge

:28:44.:28:52.

of Perkins. Can he come round the outside? No, Bauge is too strong.

:28:53.:28:57.

It set up a final between Jason Kenny and Gregory Bauge which will

:28:57.:29:01.

be a repeat of the world championship clash earlier this

:29:01.:29:10.

year. Bauge dictated throughout, didn't he. Two riders have been

:29:10.:29:15.

stamped out in this competition. Bauge and Kenny deserve to be in

:29:15.:29:19.

the final. Both of them I think are head-and-shoulders above the

:29:19.:29:26.

opposition. They have gone for two clean rides to get them into the

:29:26.:29:34.

final. That was a repeat of the world final in 2010 and Bauge won

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

We have already discussed the contentious decision not to allow

:29:45.:29:49.

countries to have more than one rider in the event. But we do have

:29:49.:29:53.

two men in the final, this two men who fought out the world

:29:53.:30:01.

championship not too long ago. Bauge looks ominously good. He eat

:30:01.:30:08.

his and tactically very good. as a man who sprinted from living

:30:08.:30:12.

there now coaches the sprinters, the power that Jason Kenny showed,

:30:12.:30:16.

we do not want to draw on it too much because we know you coached

:30:16.:30:20.

Njisane but he rode around the outside without breaking a sweat.

:30:20.:30:26.

Yes, Njisane comes from Trinidad where they do a lot tactically.

:30:26.:30:31.

There is a lot of good racing down there. He threw everything he could

:30:31.:30:41.
:30:41.:30:42.

at him. He has gone further in this competition than I hoped. I know he

:30:42.:30:46.

is proud already and hopefully he will give Perkins a run for the

:30:46.:30:50.

bronze which would be amazing if he could top Perkins. But even there I

:30:50.:30:56.

think he has got his work cut out. Are a good competition so far and

:30:56.:31:02.

no major surprises. There is a guy from Trinidad and Tobago who is

:31:02.:31:06.

getting a chance to ride, not only in front of this crowd but in front

:31:06.:31:14.

of a global TV audience. When we go to World Cups, there are so many

:31:14.:31:18.

people in the competition, quite often these guys, people like

:31:18.:31:23.

Njisane, he has been severed at a World Cup and here he is fighting

:31:23.:31:28.

for a bronze. That is the thin by the Olympic Games, it should be for

:31:28.:31:31.

the best riders in the world, it is the pinnacle of the sport and I

:31:31.:31:37.

think the best riders in the sport should get to fight. We do not want

:31:37.:31:40.

the world championships to be seen as the pinnacle because it will

:31:40.:31:46.

tarnish the Olympic Games. So Bauge against Kenny in the final here

:31:46.:31:51.

this evening. But the lady who has been dubbed Queen Victoria is here

:31:51.:31:56.

on the track now. She is through to the quarter-finals of the women's

:31:56.:32:06.
:32:06.:32:08.

Hair opponent is not really a sprint specialist. She has had a

:32:08.:32:15.

few medals but I think Victoria has no problems. Let's see how this one

:32:15.:32:20.

pans out. Once again, it is the best of three. Back to you hue and

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

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 46 seconds

:32:30.:33:16.

here, leading this one out. Victoria is saying, if you are

:33:16.:33:19.

giving me space, I will start accelerating and see how much rope

:33:19.:33:23.

you are prepared to give me. She has taken it down to the bottom of

:33:23.:33:29.

the track, weaving around. She has to be vigilant. She cannot afford

:33:29.:33:34.

to make any serious mistakes. Surely, the sheer size of engine

:33:34.:33:44.
:33:44.:33:45.

will win this for Pendleton. Pendleton will be aware of how good

:33:45.:33:55.
:33:55.:33:56.

her opponent is. Their accelerating down the back straight. Pendleton

:33:56.:34:01.

is at the front with the greatest strength. The crowd are loving it.

:34:01.:34:10.

Pendleton takes it. She is such a cute tactician. It is hard to know

:34:10.:34:20.
:34:20.:34:34.

what to do against that. No options there was no way at all that

:34:34.:34:44.
:34:44.:34:47.

Again, tactically very strong. Vicky was dominating the track.

:34:47.:34:55.

Absolutely. They were riding around the lap. She accelerated and held

:34:55.:35:00.

her and there. One of the things we have been enjoying his checking

:35:00.:35:05.

Twitter because track cycling is something that many people only see

:35:05.:35:12.

four years. Many people on Twitter are saying, why don't you just go

:35:12.:35:15.

off as quick as you can. Can you put a few people out of their

:35:15.:35:22.

misery? Three laps for the women, that is probably going on a 50

:35:22.:35:26.

seconds, that is a long time. As soon as you start pushing really

:35:26.:35:32.

hard, your energy systems are being drained dramatically. You will last

:35:33.:35:37.

20 seconds at full on gas and then you will start to fatigue. As long

:35:37.:35:41.

as that rider can get behind you, they are saving about 30 % in

:35:42.:35:46.

energy. Then as soon as you started tier, they will go past the. We

:35:46.:35:50.

have seen some people who have gone from the gun. It has happened a

:35:51.:35:57.

couple of times. Somebody tried it against Chris Hoy not too long ago.

:35:57.:36:03.

It does happen. But you really have to catch that person not looking.

:36:03.:36:07.

If they see it coming, they will latch on to a wheel and sit there

:36:07.:36:12.

and let you do the work and then pass. There you go, questions

:36:12.:36:17.

answered. Your thoughts on the form of Victoria Pendleton. She is in

:36:17.:36:21.

cruise control right now, not even trying. Make sure you join us later

:36:21.:36:26.

on because the women's omnium is about to hot up and we will seek

:36:26.:36:30.

Jason Kenny riding for that gold. Sue, another exciting afternoon in

:36:30.:36:36.

the velodrome but I gather excitement elsewhere as well.

:36:36.:36:40.

Yes, we are going to head over to Greenwich Park because another gold

:36:40.:36:45.

medal was decided in be Team showjumping. There were two teams

:36:45.:36:48.

tied for gold and silver, the Netherlands and Great Britain. All

:36:49.:36:53.

four members of the team took part in the jump off. Quite simply, it

:36:53.:37:03.
:37:03.:37:26.

So much experience here, he will want to put it all to use. He is

:37:26.:37:36.
:37:36.:37:47.

ground. He needs to stay clear now. He is going very wide up to this

:37:47.:37:57.
:37:57.:38:03.

oxer. Just the double and the last to jump for team gold. Down to

:38:03.:38:13.

Tower Bridge for gold. This could be the first goal for Great Britain,

:38:13.:38:19.

and Britain have got gold! Up come the arms. What a tremendous round

:38:19.:38:28.

for Peter Charles. The round of his life! It has not gone well for him

:38:28.:38:33.

before. The man for the occasion has won gulled. Unbelievable

:38:33.:38:37.

pressure and the coolest man in the stadium was Peter Charles. Foot

:38:37.:38:47.
:38:47.:38:48.

perfect, what a piece of riding. The team leader, the team captain,

:38:48.:38:58.
:38:58.:38:59.

Nick Skelton, you have an Olympic It has taken me 54 years. I'm

:38:59.:39:05.

speechless. Unbelievable. Was it easier being in their yourself than

:39:06.:39:11.

watching Peter? I wish I could have gone four times. The lads have done

:39:11.:39:15.

great, absolutely brilliant. Chief and for you, given the carry you

:39:15.:39:20.

have had and the injuries you have had, this is extraordinary. I know.

:39:20.:39:24.

I have got a wonderful horse, wonderful owners, a dream come true.

:39:24.:39:29.

And you could have individual gold? Absolutely brilliant, great for the

:39:29.:39:35.

country, great for our sport, it has taken all these years.

:39:35.:39:39.

Well done for Nick Skelton! What a story that is. His 6th Olympic

:39:39.:39:44.

Games. He has never got above 5th before. But he has come here and

:39:44.:39:50.

won his first Olympic medal and it is gold. The first one for 60 years.

:39:50.:39:55.

So cool under pressure. That takes Great Britain on to 17 gold medals

:39:55.:39:58.

at these Games and maybe another to come at the velodrome later on. If

:39:59.:40:08.
:40:09.:40:09.

we can get back there and we -- we You have had plenty of Olympic

:40:09.:40:14.

experience and you know what it is like to have a gold medal in your

:40:14.:40:19.

hand. How do you rate these games? You have been here with the

:40:19.:40:23.

American team? Like I put on Twitter, I have been overwhelmed,

:40:23.:40:29.

more so from the volunteers and the staff. Everyone has been so polite,

:40:29.:40:33.

so friendly. Just the atmosphere, you can feel that energy just

:40:33.:40:38.

walking around the shopping centre here. Unbelievable. Even the

:40:38.:40:42.

weather's helping us out a bit. There is a bit of sun here and

:40:42.:40:46.

there. I have been blown away. I'm fortunate, I didn't think I would

:40:46.:40:51.

see a summer games in my home town. It has been fantastic. Even though

:40:51.:41:01.

you're starting to sound like an American! We have spoken that the

:41:01.:41:08.

volcano Drem has left a lasting impression. I know you were in the

:41:08.:41:13.

stadium. I know Ed Clancy was saying you will be riding in Rio.

:41:13.:41:18.

Maybe that is news to you. No it wasn't news to me. But it is news

:41:18.:41:24.

to me that it is creating an impression among the other riders.

:41:24.:41:30.

That is great to know that every cyclist. When are we going to see

:41:30.:41:35.

cycling on breakfast television a few years ago? It shows the

:41:35.:41:39.

interest there. It shows the interest across all sports. We're

:41:39.:41:44.

doing particularly well. And we have won 17 gold medals and we will

:41:44.:41:50.

win more. As a small nation, it is proud to be part of it. Our first

:41:50.:41:57.

road race world champion since 1965 wins on the Tour de France. How big

:41:57.:42:05.

is the hole left by an lemp medal. In terms of as a professional road

:42:05.:42:11.

cyclist, road cycling, profession ls couldn't compete until 1996 in

:42:11.:42:16.

the tradition, the Olympics had never figured too high. As a

:42:16.:42:22.

British citizen and as a patriotic man, it is a big thing. The

:42:22.:42:27.

Olympics are a big thing when you're British. On a personal level,

:42:27.:42:36.

on a professional level it is not too big. Well I was saying about

:42:36.:42:40.

borrowing Geraint Thomas's medal. He didn't have a photo with it,

:42:40.:42:44.

because he wants one of his own. Now it is Jason Kenny with his eyes

:42:44.:42:53.

on the prize. He will rise -- ride in the sprint final against Gregory

:42:53.:43:01.

Bauge. Let's get to know the man behind the mask. Here he comes,

:43:01.:43:07.

beginning to turn on the style. Oh he has got it. Gold medal number

:43:07.:43:13.

four. Chris Hoy. He will be the best in the world in a short space

:43:13.:43:17.

of time. This is the man that is going to win in London. He is over

:43:17.:43:23.

the top and down the finishing straight, Kenny takes it. He beats

:43:23.:43:28.

the Olympic champion, Sir Chris Hoy. I wouldn't want to be the first to

:43:28.:43:34.

tell Chris Hoy that she is not going ride in the Olympics. I gave

:43:34.:43:40.

my best, but Jason was going better in Melbourne and he has carried on

:43:40.:43:45.

that improvement until now and he has done well. I don't want to jinx

:43:45.:43:50.

him, but he is going to be up there and he is our best chance of a gold.

:43:50.:43:54.

It is a shame only one person can ride. But once you have accepted

:43:54.:43:59.

that, it is just sport and the way it is. We have got to get on with

:43:59.:44:05.

it now. How did they give you the news? I just got called in for a

:44:05.:44:08.

meeting and said I have been selected for the sprint. I thought

:44:08.:44:13.

I was in trouble. Because I usually am when I get called in for a

:44:13.:44:19.

meeting. So it was nice that I wasn't getting shouted at. There

:44:19.:44:28.

isn't a big man to beat and that is Bhuj. Bauge on his day is

:44:28.:44:31.

phenomenal and he has proved to be head and shoulders above everyone

:44:31.:44:35.

in the strength department. But we have been working hard and we have

:44:35.:44:39.

made some massive gains and hopefully we will be in a place

:44:39.:44:45.

where we can race him and hopefully beat him. There is something

:44:45.:44:49.

appealing about Jason Kenny. You have ridden with him. He is such a

:44:49.:44:53.

quiet guy. What is he like away from the cameras. He is the same. I

:44:53.:45:01.

roomed with him prior to to go to Beijing. A very nice guy, like your

:45:01.:45:06.

average kid off the street. He has worked his way up the ranks in the

:45:06.:45:11.

team. The funniest thing is he walks so slow. It is hilarious.

:45:11.:45:16.

rides so fast? Yes. He was riding his bike towards the velodrome and

:45:16.:45:21.

he passed me. But I caught him up as he was going over the bridge and

:45:21.:45:26.

I was close to him and we had a chat. We were walking and he is so

:45:26.:45:32.

slow. I put a Twitter out there, I said to Ian, I announced he is

:45:32.:45:37.

walking very slow. So he is going to be very fast. He is conserving

:45:37.:45:42.

his energy for hen he needs it and when he needs it is when he is up

:45:42.:45:45.

against Gregory Bauge. You mentioned what happened at the

:45:45.:45:49.

worlds. We should see it for ourselves. This is awe dishes

:45:49.:45:59.
:45:59.:46:03.

sprinting. Bauge is a big guy. He uses his energy and his lactic acid

:46:03.:46:08.

levels fill up. If he gets the gap. He has a gap that Bauge can't get

:46:08.:46:12.

in the slip stream and Jason went and it will take so much energy out

:46:12.:46:18.

of boith. But Jason can recover for the next round. It is the best of

:46:18.:46:24.

three and he has to go up a few minutes later. If Jason can wipe

:46:24.:46:31.

his energy level's out. But it is not just about speed. You have got

:46:31.:46:37.

to stick by the rules and despite that ride, Jason was disqualified.

:46:37.:46:43.

We saw him popping out of lane. didn't try to do it as deliberate

:46:43.:46:49.

as that. It took the speed out of Bauge and the picture on their

:46:49.:46:55.

faces was excellent. It hurts. looked at first that Bauge didn't

:46:55.:47:00.

get going. He couldn't believe what he was seeing. Jason set out to do

:47:00.:47:04.

that and would have put on appropriate gear and the smaller

:47:04.:47:10.

than what he usually races on. Bauge rides big gears. So Kenny is

:47:10.:47:14.

accelerating and Bauge is trying to get this huge gear going. So does

:47:14.:47:21.

Jason Kenny do the same thing in the final? I wouldn't put it past

:47:21.:47:27.

him. Not in the first ride. Maybe these two know something? But if

:47:27.:47:31.

you stick us with, you can see the final in the men's sprint. You will

:47:31.:47:36.

see it after this race, because this is the sec event in the omnium

:47:36.:47:44.

and we will show you stapbgsd. Laura Trott is competing for

:47:44.:47:45.

Laura Trott is competing for Britain. The aim is to have the

:47:45.:47:52.

least number of points at the end of the six events. We're going to

:47:52.:47:58.

join the points race and our commentators, Chris Boardman and

:47:58.:48:04.

Hugh Porter. COMMENTATOR: There are three laps to go to the first

:48:04.:48:14.
:48:14.:48:21.

sprint in this women's points race. Laura trot has made a great start.

:48:22.:48:29.

Sanchez of France is second and Edmondson is third. Is in is the

:48:29.:48:33.

first sprint, it has been a very pedestrian pace. Nobody wanted to

:48:33.:48:43.
:48:43.:48:47.

take it on. Now at the front from Spain is Oliver Rhea. On the line

:48:47.:48:57.
:48:57.:48:57.

five, three, two and one. The Canadian taking with her Edmondson

:48:57.:49:03.

of Australia. These are the first two over the line. Edmondson gets

:49:03.:49:12.

the five-three. Looked the two going to the Spanish rider. Laura

:49:12.:49:18.

Trott happy to monitor affairs. Often the people with a breakaway,

:49:18.:49:22.

they don't figure, because they have expended a lot of energy. She

:49:22.:49:32.
:49:32.:49:32.

rolls through to keep the speed high. Happy to watch and wait.

:49:32.:49:38.

is the rider with the most points that is the winner of the second

:49:38.:49:48.
:49:48.:49:51.

discipline. If they gain a lap, they get a 20-point bonus. That is

:49:51.:50:00.

often what decides it. Edmondson denied witten the five points. Now

:50:01.:50:05.

on the first watching is Laura Trott and as we have said she may

:50:05.:50:09.

well find the burden of being the world champion a challenge, because

:50:09.:50:15.

nobody will want to go with her. She has demonstrated with that

:50:15.:50:18.

blistering first lap, flying lap, that she did for the opening event

:50:19.:50:22.

that she is on form. You may find that when the attacking starts,

:50:22.:50:30.

they will look to thror do the claising. -- to do the chasing. Her

:50:30.:50:36.

form is there. Four laps is the real danger point. That is where if

:50:36.:50:41.

somebody attacks you won't have the legs left to recover. They're

:50:41.:50:47.

watching each other like hawks. Nobody at all wants to ignite the

:50:47.:50:52.

burners. Sarah Hammer, the American, four times the world individual

:50:52.:50:58.

pursuit champion and one who likes to get stuck in. It looks as though

:50:58.:51:03.

Hammer is likely to set the pace here. In the inside Wild of the

:51:03.:51:11.

Netherlands as well. The way Hammer normally whips is to wind it up and

:51:11.:51:17.

go for long ones. This isn't a great style of race for Laura. She

:51:17.:51:21.

would like to see an attacking race. It is a dangerous way the ride,

:51:21.:51:26.

they're going around the banking slowly and it is easy to slide down.

:51:26.:51:30.

Nobody wants to attack. Quite unusual at this level of racing

:51:30.:51:36.

that nobody wants to take it on yet. Lee of Korea is near the front.

:51:36.:51:46.
:51:46.:51:47.

Whitten is there and the Spaniard. It looks like somebody is beginning

:51:47.:51:52.

to gather themselves the Belarus rider has come alongside the

:51:52.:51:57.

outside and she may launch herself into an attack. She is trying to

:51:57.:52:03.

position herself for the next sprint. So is Gar see yafplt what a

:52:03.:52:10.

steady way of approaching the sprint this is. They're dropping

:52:10.:52:16.

their foot on the pedal. Two to go for the second sprint. 5 hundred

:52:16.:52:22.

metres to go to decide the points. On the head is Lee. But Trott is

:52:22.:52:27.

moving through and the crowd are getting animated here. Laura Trott

:52:27.:52:31.

has Wild on her shoulder. But she is in a good position. She can get

:52:31.:52:38.

a run for the line. And Trott has gained a perfect lead. And that is

:52:38.:52:44.

what the world champion wants. Laura trot has read the move

:52:44.:52:49.

perfectly. Can she get around the lead out rider and get the five

:52:49.:52:55.

points? Oh very close on the line. She may well have got those five

:52:55.:53:01.

points. We will wait for confrlation, but she road --

:53:01.:53:09.

confirmation, but she rode that beautifully. Trott has attacked.

:53:10.:53:14.

Edmondson spotted it and you can see Trott is going, come on, I'm

:53:14.:53:19.

ready if you are. But it is too early in the race. Trott did get

:53:19.:53:23.

the sprint. It was close. She pushed Garcia into second. Thiss

:53:23.:53:29.

how close it was. Look at that. That is the time to launch your

:53:29.:53:36.

effort in the closing stages. That is what Trott did. She play be

:53:36.:53:42.

young, but that belays the way she rides. There is the coach. He is

:53:42.:53:46.

happy. An attack goes underneert. Once they roll up to the

:53:46.:53:50.

opportunity, they allow the opportunities. It is the Polish

:53:50.:53:57.

ride we are D'Hoore of Belgium. They're straight into their pace-

:53:57.:54:03.

making. Some hesitation has given them some daylight. There is the

:54:03.:54:08.

result of sprint number two and we have now a brace of riders tying on

:54:08.:54:13.

five and the first two sprints. Those two riders will with -- be

:54:13.:54:20.

the top top contenders at the end. Laura Trott is to the head.

:54:20.:54:24.

Everyone goes with her and says, we don't want to do the chasing. She

:54:24.:54:28.

has got to bluff. All the riders have something to lose and they

:54:28.:54:32.

have all swung to the top of the track. That is the point your were

:54:32.:54:37.

making. Now let's look at this. In the back group we have Edmondson

:54:37.:54:41.

and Whitten. So there are two big favourites there. The American

:54:41.:54:47.

Hammer is there as well. And we have Sanchez at the front. Sanchez

:54:47.:54:57.
:54:57.:55:21.

had a good time trial and is Sharakova, she has seen the danger

:55:21.:55:27.

and she is taking Tara Whitten with terrors well. They have been paired

:55:27.:55:34.

in the peloton. Those five are riding a very steady pace behind.

:55:34.:55:40.

They will keep riding consistently here. Yes, they are in the sprint

:55:40.:55:46.

lap now. The Belgian is leading and she is being challenged as they

:55:46.:55:53.

come up to the line. This is where the points will be decided. They

:55:53.:56:00.

have gained a laugh as well, so that is a very useful move. Hammer

:56:00.:56:10.
:56:10.:56:29.

has gone straight on the attack for a while. They picked up the points

:56:29.:56:33.

for the lap, then closed down the 20 metres to bridge to the back of

:56:33.:56:41.

the peloton. That means they got the five, and the 24 gaining the

:56:41.:56:51.
:56:51.:57:00.

lap. A very dangerous for reforming at the front, allowing Tara Whitten

:57:00.:57:06.

to get off the front, and Sarah Hammer is absolutely... Well, it is

:57:06.:57:12.

such a dangerous move. Laura Trott has spotted the danger, but she is

:57:12.:57:16.

so heavily marked. Everyone is trying to raise the pace. If they

:57:16.:57:21.

don't get on top of this quickly, it could be a very dangerous move.

:57:21.:57:27.

If these three are allowed to get some points, it could have an

:57:27.:57:32.

effect on the overall standings. These are the big players for the

:57:32.:57:42.
:57:42.:57:48.

final positions. Tara Whitten Prom with the best omnium rider we have

:57:48.:57:58.
:57:58.:58:06.

had. An attack off the front again. Wojtyra, trying to win this race.

:58:06.:58:10.

Everybody looking around at each other. Nobody wants to do the

:58:11.:58:20.
:58:21.:58:22.

chasing. This is what happens when there are just two or three riders.

:58:22.:58:27.

And that has now been tidied up for us. Because of the points they have

:58:27.:58:31.

picked up in the race, in means they have slotted into the overall

:58:31.:58:38.

standings. Hammer at the moment is lying in equal seventh, and Laura

:58:38.:58:43.

Trott is equal ninth. Come on, Laura Trott, she will have to get

:58:43.:58:49.

on terms with these riders. If she can't gain allowed herself, that is

:58:49.:58:59.
:58:59.:59:05.

as high as you can finish. -- gain a lap. The quartet have slipped

:59:05.:59:10.

away. If she was to finish in ninth place in this event, added to the

:59:10.:59:16.

first place you got in the time- trial, it would give her an overall

:59:16.:59:23.

tally of 10. That would mean Sarah Hammer and Tara Whitten could leap

:59:23.:59:28.

over her. At the moment, they are lying in seventh place and third

:59:28.:59:33.

place. It is not desperate if it remained like that. They are

:59:33.:59:37.

getting a chance to recover now, which again does not work in the

:59:37.:59:44.

favour of Laura Trott as another attack goes from the front of the

:59:44.:59:54.
:59:54.:00:12.

bunch. The latest attacker off the front having a crack is Romanyuta.

:00:12.:00:18.

Just attacking ones and twos all of the time. Laura Trott has an

:00:18.:00:23.

opportunity now, spotted straight away by Tara Whitten. She has got

:00:23.:00:29.

herself on the front foot by gaining a lap so she can ride

:00:29.:00:35.

defensively. This race is becoming very complicated. If I can try to

:00:35.:00:40.

simplify it, this is one of the reasons it was dropped actually

:00:40.:00:45.

from the Olympic Games. The ultimate aim is to obviously sprint

:00:45.:00:51.

and contest each of the sprints which take place every 10 laps. It

:00:51.:00:56.

you gain a lap, you get a point bonus. We have had two groups in

:00:56.:01:02.

different times going away. At the moment Laura Trott is so heavily

:01:02.:01:10.

marked out, the only points she has gained is won by right in the

:01:10.:01:16.

sprint. She has got to try to work out a formula to get clear to get

:01:16.:01:22.

that lap back. So a Sarah Hammer he is becoming stronger on the outside.

:01:22.:01:27.

She recovers so well, and Laura Trott has gone after her. Laura

:01:27.:01:32.

Trott is now chasing down Sarah Hammer, and that is the head of the

:01:32.:01:39.

race. Hammer get the five and Laura Trott gets the three. He she can

:01:39.:01:49.
:01:49.:01:56.

keep going, she really needs to try to get a lap back. Annette

:01:56.:02:06.
:02:06.:02:22.

Edmondson gets the two and Kiesanowski one get the one. We

:02:22.:02:27.

must stress have to remember this is a competition of six events, six

:02:27.:02:32.

different disciplines, and if you win one of them you gain a point.

:02:32.:02:36.

You are up your points and it is the rider with the least amount of

:02:36.:02:44.

points after the six disciplines that is crowned the winner. There

:02:44.:02:52.

are two very happy ladies but let's get back to the points race and

:02:52.:02:57.

Tara Whitten started in seventh place in this because she was

:02:57.:03:02.

actually in seventh place in the time-trial. At the moment she is

:03:02.:03:07.

lying fifth in this points race, so if it was to remain like that their

:03:07.:03:17.

cumulative points would be 12. She is sitting 10th in the moment. All

:03:17.:03:21.

is not lost but you have got to try to be consistent. She would have

:03:21.:03:26.

liked a better performance in this particular discipline, but at the

:03:26.:03:30.

moment she is almost resigned to having to write this one off. She

:03:30.:03:36.

is not allowed to make a move, everyone is watching her. Sorry,

:03:36.:03:41.

Chris, but it is exactly what you said - her reputation is a burden

:03:41.:03:45.

here because they know she is the red hot favourite, the world

:03:45.:03:50.

champion, so every time she moved they are all over her. It has also

:03:50.:03:55.

been noted that Annette Edmondson has been watching Laura Trott very

:03:55.:04:00.

closely as well. While there have been watching each other, the rest

:04:00.:04:06.

of the world has slipped away so it has neutralised again. I think this

:04:06.:04:11.

was Laura Trott's worst discipline at the World Championships where

:04:11.:04:18.

she didn't figure in the top five, but she still won the title. It is

:04:18.:04:22.

interesting to note that Annette Edmondson his 11th place in this

:04:22.:04:32.
:04:32.:04:39.

race, one. Just one point shy of Laura Trott. Laura Trott is already

:04:39.:04:43.

ahead so it doesn't matter now. It is not depriving her of opposition

:04:43.:04:53.
:04:53.:05:01.

in this race. So, 21. With just one point between them, she has to

:05:01.:05:06.

figure in these sprints or she will drop another place. A look at Laura

:05:06.:05:16.
:05:16.:05:18.

Trott, she is riding the wheel of Tara Whitten. Remember, what it

:05:18.:05:23.

means now it is that Annette Edmondson and Laura Trott are tying

:05:23.:05:33.
:05:33.:05:33.

on the same points. They married will now because she was one point

:05:33.:05:37.

shy of Laura Trott. There is the result, these are the overall

:05:37.:05:43.

standings. We are trying to simplify this as much as we can. I

:05:43.:05:48.

know this raises difficult to follow. A Laura Trott he needs to

:05:48.:05:53.

better the Australian if she can. As more riders slipped away off the

:05:53.:05:57.

road, that might help Laura Trott because it will take the points a

:05:57.:06:05.

way of course. The Laura Trott is still intense place equal with

:06:06.:06:09.

Annette Edmondson. If they are equal at the end, Laura Trott will

:06:09.:06:18.

be given the sport. For that's right, it goes to count back to the

:06:18.:06:28.
:06:28.:06:34.

sprints, where you finished. This is astonishing. Annette Edmondson

:06:34.:06:37.

chasing this one down. She wants the opportunity to score more

:06:37.:06:47.
:06:47.:06:51.

points. The they are not persisting with the pacemaking. If they do

:06:51.:07:01.
:07:01.:07:01.

swing up, now would be a good opportunity to attack. The two

:07:01.:07:08.

riders are just off the front here. 14 laps to go, four away from the

:07:08.:07:16.

penultimate sprint, and at the moment the Korean is leading. They

:07:16.:07:23.

have got a handsome lead. The thing is, it is so tactical this race,

:07:23.:07:27.

this is why we have had the situation with little groups

:07:27.:07:32.

developing. Tara Whitten in shot now, lying in second place at the

:07:32.:07:42.
:07:42.:07:55.

moment. Wojtyra could win this. has certainly had an aggressive

:07:55.:08:00.

ride, taking advantage of the fact the other riders are wary of each

:08:00.:08:06.

other. Tara Whitten has managed to slip away from the others. We have

:08:06.:08:12.

these two riders ahead now, as they are approaching the back straight,

:08:12.:08:20.

the penultimate sprint. Annette Edmondson has come to the front of

:08:20.:08:30.
:08:30.:08:31.

the peloton again. She has got to come round. I think she did it, she

:08:31.:08:38.

got over Kiesanowski, but not Annette Edmondson so it means the

:08:38.:08:44.

Australian, Annette Edmondson, was third, so she got the two points

:08:44.:08:54.
:08:54.:08:55.

and Laura Trott got one. It could all come down to the last sprint.

:08:55.:09:05.

gasp from the crowd as the riders nearly touched wheels. We said this

:09:05.:09:09.

might happen. She is an out and out sprinter. She was lucky to hold

:09:09.:09:17.

that. How on earth did Kiesanowski stay up right there? She brushed

:09:17.:09:22.

the back wheel of the Australian but nobody came down. If Laura

:09:22.:09:27.

Trott could figure strongly in the final sprint and get herself five

:09:27.:09:34.

points, she would go ahead of Annette Edmondson. We were just

:09:34.:09:39.

saying, she is an out and out sprinter so no surprise she had a

:09:39.:09:44.

great performance in the time-trial and these are the events in which

:09:44.:09:52.

she will really struggle. Just one sprint to go in this race. Tara

:09:52.:09:56.

Whitten is leading clearly. She started with seven points after the

:09:56.:10:02.

time trial. I can tell you that Annette Edmondson, the Australian,

:10:02.:10:08.

is in 10th place at the moment and Laura Trott is in ninth place so

:10:08.:10:12.

she needs to beat Annette Edmondson if she wants to remain ahead of her

:10:12.:10:22.
:10:22.:10:28.

in the overall standings. Five laps on the wheel of Edmondson. She

:10:28.:10:32.

needs to go on the offensive. reference to Hammer, the American,

:10:33.:10:38.

she is three points behind Whitten in the points race. She starting

:10:38.:10:42.

here in fifth position after the time trials. It could be Hammer

:10:42.:10:51.

ahead of Whitten. She is lining up for this next sprint. She likes to

:10:51.:10:57.

wind it up and no one can get around here. Ed monthson is in the

:10:57.:11:02.

worst position. She is stuck in the wheels low in the track and Trott

:11:02.:11:08.

has a clear run on the outside. She could steal a march on Edmondson as

:11:08.:11:14.

they have two to go. Look out around the outside here. They're

:11:14.:11:18.

trying to come around and steal some points. Two laps to go. Here

:11:19.:11:25.

they go. Warming up for the final sprint and Whitten comes over the

:11:25.:11:32.

top. She is leading this points race and gone for an early strike.

:11:32.:11:37.

Trott is coming through. They have wound up the pace early. One lap to

:11:37.:11:42.

go. Sharakova over Whitten. Brilliant riding by Trott. There is

:11:42.:11:48.

a good chance she could get second in this sprint. What has she got?

:11:48.:11:55.

Sharakova is leading and was it trot snt it was so close. That is

:11:55.:12:01.

the final sprint and very difficult to split them. What it does mean is

:12:01.:12:06.

that Trott will go ahead of Edmondson in the final standings in

:12:06.:12:11.

the points race. Without gaining that lap, that is the best position

:12:11.:12:16.

she could hope for. It came down to the final sprint. Let's look at the

:12:16.:12:26.

result. It is very tight. There is Laura Trott. She timed her effort

:12:26.:12:29.

perfectly and she is a very smart rider. She saw the wheel that she

:12:29.:12:35.

was going to follow and she did. It was a matter of did she beat

:12:35.:12:40.

Sharakova on the line for that final sprint. That has been

:12:40.:12:46.

rejigged and law tra Trott did get that tenth position. She was only

:12:46.:12:51.

eighth at the World Championships when she went on to win. Probably

:12:51.:12:55.

her worst discipline out of the way. That is no at bad finishing

:12:55.:13:00.

position for her, tenth as we look at some of the images. We will

:13:00.:13:05.

confirm the overall standings after that final sprint. But Hammer and

:13:05.:13:13.

Whitten are figuring strongly. have got something of a gift and

:13:13.:13:19.

were allowed to infiltrate, Whitten was able to infiltrate that

:13:19.:13:24.

breakaway. Sarah Hammer did well to gain that lap. That is going to

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

keep this competition I think very close all the way to the finish now.

:13:34.:13:38.

Laura trot didn't want to lose that lap. Everyone was waiting for her

:13:38.:13:43.

to do the chasing. If she had, she would have been finished and they

:13:43.:13:48.

would have attacked her more. So a victim of her own success. We see

:13:48.:13:56.

the photograph. It was close. 4,000th of a second splitting them.

:13:56.:14:03.

How valuable will that point be at the end? Here it is now. I think we

:14:03.:14:10.

have got the results. A chance to see the finish again. That is what

:14:10.:14:19.

4,000th of a second looks like! Laura Trott had us gasping there.

:14:19.:14:24.

Sharakova must have thought she has got this. But here comes Laura,

:14:24.:14:31.

just beating her. Edmondson had ridden so well. She was bobgsd in

:14:32.:14:40.

and could not get out. -- boxed in. So Laura is in third now. We're

:14:41.:14:48.

going to confirm the result. There it is. Wojtyra was the winner of

:14:48.:14:55.

the points race. Whitten in third. D'Hoore and Hammer and Trott tenth.

:14:55.:15:01.

We will need to skrol the points on. And you will see that Trott is

:15:01.:15:07.

still well in contention. We will show you the overall standings as

:15:07.:15:16.

Wojtyra rolls away. She gained a lap and stayed clear. Whitten tying

:15:16.:15:23.

with Hammer for the lead. Trott is with Hammer for the lead. Trott is

:15:23.:15:28.

third. We know the aim of the game to have the fewest points and Laura

:15:28.:15:32.

still in contention and it is not something that she excels in, that

:15:32.:15:40.

race. Yes, she started off well. But I think it took its toll at the

:15:41.:15:46.

end. You culled see every sprint she is up there and got the best

:15:46.:15:50.

result out of the people who didn't gate lap in the race. That showed

:15:50.:15:54.

she is sprinting well and should go well in the other race. The points

:15:54.:15:59.

race is different. It is a weird race. It is easy to make it neutral

:15:59.:16:05.

and you could see Laura and Edmondson marking each other out of

:16:05.:16:09.

it. But a points race, because there is a sprintive ten laps, you

:16:09.:16:16.

can't chase down and you have to kaep it going. And the race should

:16:16.:16:22.

evolve like that. That put them on the back foot. But she is in the

:16:22.:16:28.

top ten. She hasn't lost as many points as kwhransy lost. So Laura

:16:28.:16:36.

has made sure her nearest rivals, they were her first priority and

:16:36.:16:40.

allowing others to breakaway is less of a concern. Yes you're

:16:40.:16:45.

keeping your eyes on those that you think later on tomorrow, who you

:16:45.:16:50.

will be fighting for medals. It is quite confusing for people at home.

:16:50.:16:54.

But it is difficult, you're trying to balance what you can do

:16:55.:16:58.

physically with what you need to do in the events that are still to

:16:58.:17:03.

come and marking people out if they're your rival and keeping your

:17:03.:17:08.

eyes on the bigger picture. Is it as confusing when you're in the

:17:08.:17:13.

race? No when I watch at mom on television, the points race you

:17:14.:17:18.

can't follow it. Even when you're in the stands it is hard to follow.

:17:18.:17:22.

The easiest place to follow it is in the race. You know where people

:17:22.:17:27.

are and how many laps you have done and where people are on the track.

:17:27.:17:31.

So it is easy to follow there. understand. I think as far as Laura

:17:31.:17:37.

goes, she is will be happy with that race. Now we go on to things

:17:37.:17:43.

that suit her better. Yes the better vents for Laura coming up.

:17:44.:17:50.

We have proved, we have done the maths on this and basically if you

:17:50.:17:56.

can finish fifth, within third to fifth in each event, you can win.

:17:56.:18:02.

It is about the average. Even to the end that sprint could have a

:18:02.:18:12.

huge bearing on the way it pans out. It didn't affect the result there.

:18:12.:18:16.

Whereas the decathlon or the heptathlon track in track and field,

:18:16.:18:23.

it is about your individual score in each event. On the omnium in the

:18:23.:18:27.

velodrome it is about your position in the actual race. It makes no

:18:27.:18:33.

difference if you get more or less points in a points race. It is your

:18:33.:18:38.

finishing position that will affect the outcome. This is that final

:18:38.:18:42.

sprint and you saw Laura just manage to take that final sprint.

:18:42.:18:47.

But not the most crucial thing in the race. But I hope we have

:18:47.:18:52.

managed to show how confusing the points race can be. So Laura Trott

:18:52.:18:57.

still in contention. Somebody else with his eyes on the prize is Jason

:18:57.:19:03.

Kenny. He is just running around preparing himself, gearing up to

:19:03.:19:09.

take Bauge, a man who knows what it takes to win the World Championship.

:19:09.:19:19.
:19:19.:19:34.

Now to celebrate another medal for sprint. Just being swro Dawesed is

:19:34.:19:41.

-- introduced is Phillip and his opponent from Australia is Shane

:19:41.:19:49.

Perkins, the 25-year-old Australian. On paper, you would have to favour

:19:49.:19:57.

Perkins. As really Phillip is a newcomer to us. He has won a gold

:19:57.:20:04.

in the Pan Ams, but Perkins has more experience. But who knows?

:20:04.:20:09.

has been up against some of the world's best sprinters. It has been

:20:09.:20:13.

a fantastic learning opportunity. He must be delighted to get through

:20:13.:20:22.

to a medal ride off and he has a good shot at one as well. Perkins

:20:22.:20:31.

may need to take the lead. Try to dictate the race to the Australian.

:20:31.:20:40.

The spripters are razor sharp. The way they react. There is not a lot

:20:40.:20:47.

in it between the two opponents. Evenly matched in style actually.

:20:47.:20:53.

Yes. And of course always in the best of a three contest, it's such

:20:54.:21:00.

a morale booster to draw first blad. Perkins still leading this one out.

:21:00.:21:07.

Two more laps to go. No commitment at the moment. Just the finessing,

:21:07.:21:11.

trying to outwit each other. Perkins looks as if he would like

:21:12.:21:15.

to keep his opponent in the second position. It is harder then you

:21:15.:21:20.

have the long way to come around. But this is the attack. Oh yes, a

:21:20.:21:25.

good move by Phillip of Trinidad. He caught Perkins napping. Can he

:21:25.:21:30.

hold off the challenge? He is accelerating. Look at this now,

:21:30.:21:37.

Perkins having to close down. As they come into the finishing line.

:21:37.:21:43.

Can Perkins do it? I think Perkins did it. The final lunge for the

:21:43.:21:50.

line. But what a great race by Phillip. He really did commit to

:21:50.:21:54.

that move. Perkins thought it was a feint and didn't accelerate and

:21:54.:21:58.

found himself where he didn't want to be fpblt but he didn't panic and

:21:58.:22:05.

in the end he had superior physical form. I hope we can see that again.

:22:05.:22:10.

Because the young man from Trinidad rord is well, but didn't have the

:22:10.:22:15.

power to hold him off. Here it is. Out of the saddle down the back

:22:15.:22:21.

straight. I was thinking he may come out of the sprinter's lane.

:22:21.:22:26.

But he knew he would be penalised for that. It came down to

:22:26.:22:36.

horsepower. But a great race. Australian coach indicating how

:22:36.:22:42.

close it was. And we can confirm the result for you. Shane Perkins

:22:42.:22:51.

goes one up. Now we wait for this. This is the one we have been

:22:51.:22:57.

waiting for. This is a repeat of World Championship final that took

:22:57.:23:03.

place in Melbourne earlier this year. It was Gregory Bauge that won

:23:03.:23:08.

on this occasion. I think this is a better Jason Kenny that we're

:23:08.:23:10.

seeing. He was fast in qualification. I think he has got

:23:10.:23:16.

the edge this time. Look at the support he has got. Kenny, you're

:23:16.:23:26.
:23:26.:23:33.

right there. The 24-year-old tr Bolton. A double Olympic gold medal

:23:33.:23:38.

winner. There is the coach, who worked out how he thought he could

:23:38.:23:46.

beat Bauge in Melbourne and he nearly did it. It was only an

:23:47.:23:52.

infringement that cost him. And there three times the world

:23:52.:23:57.

champion, Gregory Bauge. A big change in British sprinting when

:23:57.:24:02.

the German world champion came across. Physically he got on the

:24:02.:24:05.

track with them and taught them the craft. They were great at

:24:05.:24:11.

conditioning, but they added that element and Jason Kenny has spent

:24:11.:24:16.

some years in high competition. Very experienced now. This is race

:24:16.:24:21.

one in the ride for the gold and silver medals in the men's sprint.

:24:21.:24:26.

Bauge at the front. Three times the world sprint champion, against

:24:26.:24:30.

Jason Kenny of Britain. This is a repeat of world final that took

:24:30.:24:36.

place earlier this year. Kenny already with a gold from these

:24:36.:24:43.

games. Coming in that world record ride in the team sprint. But

:24:43.:24:48.

conditiony I think in even better form than he was in those World

:24:48.:24:58.
:24:58.:25:08.

time Jason Kenny caught the French man by surprise, almost got away

:25:08.:25:15.

with it. He crossed the line first, it was closed between them, but now

:25:15.:25:19.

they are so evenly matched it is hard to know how they can ride.

:25:19.:25:29.
:25:29.:25:29.

Similar abilities as well. Gregory Bauge was given a fight when Jason,

:25:29.:25:39.
:25:39.:25:42.

a -- Jason Kenny rode his fastest time ever. Great Britain have

:25:42.:25:48.

nailed the gold once with Chris Hoy in Beijing. We always knew this

:25:48.:25:52.

would be a tactical affair. Greg Greene would like to keep it made

:25:52.:25:57.

and to jump hard. Jason Kenny doesn't want that to happen so he

:25:57.:26:03.

is winding it up early with a laugh and a half to go now. Go credit for

:26:03.:26:08.

the adrenalin rush. Gregory Bauge still at the front, and he is

:26:08.:26:14.

beginning to inject pace. They come up to the white strip, the 200m

:26:14.:26:20.

marker. Here comes Jason Kenny right on the shoulder, into the

:26:20.:26:27.

finishing straight here. Shoulder to shoulder, Jason Kenny takes it.

:26:27.:26:32.

He wrote that magnificently. just didn't take his foot off the

:26:32.:26:37.

gas that tall. Gregory Bauge tried to control that race and the

:26:37.:26:43.

mistake came when Jason Kenny threw him some bait, Gregory Bauge went

:26:43.:26:47.

down to the bottom of the track, Jason Kenny kept his height and

:26:47.:26:54.

forced the French man to lead him out. Beautifully done. Let's take

:26:54.:27:00.

another look at it. Jason Kenny is literally on fire. Pin-sharp, and

:27:00.:27:05.

not afraid of the reputation of Gregory Bauge. Acceleration down

:27:05.:27:10.

the back straight. He forced the French man to lead out, went into

:27:10.:27:18.

the slipstream, and it was all over with a lap to go. Even though he

:27:18.:27:23.

was on his shoulder on the final bend, he was carrying the speed.

:27:23.:27:28.

What kind of psychological bonus will that be? Gregory Bauge will be

:27:28.:27:35.

warming down, talking to the coach, and doubt will be in his mind.

:27:35.:27:41.

is happy with that. One thing that will not happen at the World

:27:41.:27:51.
:27:51.:27:55.

Championship, Gregory Bauge will Sport is all about talent, form,

:27:55.:28:02.

and momentum. At the moment all three are with Jason Kenny, and the

:28:02.:28:06.

same goes for Victoria Pendleton. She took the victory earlier on

:28:07.:28:11.

against Olga Panarina, and Anna against Olga Panarina, and Anna

:28:11.:28:16.

Meares also won her first heat. Here she goes taking to the track.

:28:16.:28:20.

We are now enjoying the quarter- finals for the team sprint.

:28:21.:28:27.

Victoria Pendleton is up next. Out onto the track, here it is Olga

:28:27.:28:34.

Panarina. She is one down, and Victoria Pendleton, the defending

:28:34.:28:40.

Olympic champion, she has been six times the winner of the world title,

:28:40.:28:44.

and when you think this is her signature event and it is her

:28:44.:28:48.

signing off event as well because she is retiring after these

:28:48.:28:55.

Olympics. What a way to retire, if she gets the gold here, she has

:28:55.:29:05.
:29:05.:29:20.

been a triple Olympic champion. Her opponent, Olga Panarina from a low

:29:21.:29:30.
:29:31.:29:33.

-- Belarus. It is hard to know what Olga Panarina can do here. I think

:29:33.:29:41.

you are right. Raced two getting under way. Victoria Pendleton right

:29:41.:29:49.

into the wheel of her opponent. Just a few laps away from a semi-

:29:49.:29:59.
:29:59.:30:02.

final appearance. I must admit, throughout the competition she has

:30:02.:30:08.

been shining like a beacon. Her performances have just steeples

:30:08.:30:16.

over the competition. 31 year-old still in second place, but that is

:30:16.:30:22.

just how she likes it. We can see that she is keeping the height and

:30:22.:30:27.

the second-placed rider always does that. I am going to keep the height,

:30:27.:30:34.

then I can take you by surprise. Olga Panarina hasn't noticed the

:30:34.:30:37.

acceleration of Victoria Pendleton. She will come straight around on

:30:37.:30:43.

the back straight now. She completely missed that. We to his

:30:43.:30:49.

academic, isn't it? She tickles the paddles, than Queen Victoria moves

:30:49.:30:55.

into the semi-finals. It couldn't have been more comfortable than

:30:55.:31:05.
:31:05.:31:06.

that. You has -- she has expended very little energy. I don't think

:31:06.:31:11.

there was anything Olga Panarina could have done. She did miss the

:31:11.:31:15.

fact that Victoria Pendleton was holding her height and accelerating

:31:15.:31:21.

as they came into the home straight with a lap to go, and it meant she

:31:21.:31:26.

could drop down in the penultimate banking, accelerate on the back

:31:26.:31:31.

straight, and we around for the final bend. Nothing she could do

:31:31.:31:37.

there. A really good ride for Victoria Pendleton because she gets

:31:37.:31:47.
:31:47.:31:48.

through with the least expenditure of energy. Coming into the home

:31:48.:31:58.
:31:58.:31:59.

straight, she was not even wanting to expand that energy. Olga

:31:59.:32:06.

Panarina will go into the ride off for the minor places. On the track,

:32:06.:32:12.

we are looking at Anna Meares, nearest to us, from Australia.

:32:12.:32:21.

is riding against Lyubov Shulika from the Ukraine. Anna Meares is

:32:21.:32:27.

well suited to the Olympics system. Normally the sprinting is very

:32:27.:32:32.

condensed over two days. It is spread out over the Olympic Games,

:32:32.:32:40.

and that will suit her. The more rest she can get, the better.

:32:40.:32:43.

Lyubov Shulika is a strong competitor but Anna Meares should

:32:43.:32:53.
:32:53.:32:54.

put her way. This is the second heat of the second quarter-final in

:32:54.:32:58.

the women's sprint and there is work to do for Lyubov Shulika

:32:58.:33:08.
:33:08.:33:09.

because she is trailing Anna Meares 1-0. Anna Meares is the only woman

:33:09.:33:18.

actually to have won every single sprint discipline. 500, keirin,

:33:18.:33:24.

Team sprint, individual sprint, but I must admit her form in the keirin

:33:24.:33:28.

certainly did disappoint me. But her time in qualification here was

:33:28.:33:34.

very quick so it looks very much to me as though she could get through

:33:34.:33:42.

to the concluding stages. That is Anna Meares, just trailing Lyubov

:33:42.:33:52.
:33:52.:33:56.

Shulika. She comfortably won the first race. Like you said in the

:33:56.:34:01.

previous race, Chris, what could Olga Panarina do to Victoria

:34:01.:34:06.

Pendleton - you ask the same question here? What can Lyubov

:34:06.:34:13.

Shulika do to beat Anna Meares? a lot, really. It has happened many

:34:13.:34:17.

times that the strong competitor has been caught out through

:34:17.:34:24.

complacency. They just drop their guard slightly. These mistakes

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

happen. She is a versatile rider, Lyubov Shulika. She was a member of

:34:34.:34:40.

the Ukrainian team that actually won silver in the world

:34:41.:34:47.

championships in 2008 when they took place in Manchester. She is

:34:47.:34:53.

using her sprinting speed here to try and deny Anna Meares a victory

:34:53.:35:03.
:35:03.:35:04.

through to the semi-finals. It is just about the limit of the pace

:35:04.:35:09.

when you get to that position on the track. Lyubov Shulika feels as

:35:09.:35:14.

if she has caught Anna Meares napping, but she has seen the move

:35:14.:35:21.

and she is reacting now. Lyubov Shulika is going to go for a

:35:21.:35:27.

complete lap. It is a big ask. Meares is completely confident. You

:35:27.:35:32.

could see from the moment she went, she was happy to let her do that,

:35:32.:35:42.
:35:42.:36:04.

to roll through. Anna Meares wins No problems for Anna Meares, and as

:36:04.:36:08.

far as Victoria Pendleton is concerned, she strikes again. At

:36:09.:36:14.

the moment the two big sprinting rivals have made it through to the

:36:14.:36:19.

semi-final and you can see that unfolding tomorrow afternoon. Let's

:36:20.:36:24.

talk about that performance from Victoria Pendleton. Once again, her

:36:24.:36:28.

opponent was simply unable to live with her. It has got to be

:36:28.:36:32.

extremely frustrating for the opponents. Great Britain just

:36:32.:36:38.

brings it to the table when it counts. Especially the first and

:36:38.:36:43.

second gear after Beijing, it kind of fell off the mark a little bit,

:36:43.:36:46.

but they were just building and developing stuff ready for this

:36:46.:36:52.

event now. Mentally as well, people at home have got to realise there

:36:52.:36:56.

is so much mental energy, and obviously physical as well, that

:36:56.:37:01.

goes into performing here and you can't do that for four years

:37:01.:37:06.

straight. You have got to take your foot off the accelerator, and build

:37:06.:37:12.

up again, and Victoria is hungry. She can have some dinner now then,

:37:12.:37:18.

because we are about to disappear over to BBC Two and we have Jason

:37:18.:37:21.

Kenny one win away from becoming the Olympic champion, and it is all

:37:21.:37:28.

about how they recover. Absolutely, he might do it in the next round

:37:28.:37:33.

but I doubt it. It is more like they do it in the first one. I

:37:33.:37:38.

think we will see a cat-and-mouse chase again. It was good - he held

:37:38.:37:43.

him on the bank and he knew exactly what he was doing. Let's see what

:37:43.:37:51.

happens. When Mark Cavendish mentions the long one, he means

:37:52.:37:59.

Jason Kenny could possibly go all the way round for an extra lap.

:37:59.:38:05.

That would be incredible. Already Britain has won its 17th

:38:05.:38:10.

medal of these Olympic Games, and before we head over to BBC Two

:38:10.:38:20.
:38:20.:38:25.
