Hello again from the Olympic Park. It is estimated over 1 million
people have come into the Olympic Park in the past 10 or 11 days to
witness the London Games. An estimated 5 million people in total
have been to all the venues around the United Kingdom so far. An
amazing response from the British public. The estimate is hundreds of
thousands who watched a gold and bronze medal in the men's Triathlon
today at Hyde Park. It has been a day of marvellous highs and pretty
dreadful lows for some at these Games.
Alistair Brownlee in one the 19th gold medal of the games for Great
Britain with this victory in the Triathlon at Hyde Park. Joined on
the podium by his brother Jonny Brownlee who finished a third. More
medal success for Great Britain in Weymouth. Nick Dempsey has taken
silver to make up for the disappointment of finishing 4th in
Beijing. It is his second Olympic medal after a bronze in Athens.
Phillips Idowu has failed to qualify for the triple jump final
after coming up short this morning. He had been struggling with injury
this season and his final jump was the nine centimetres too short. And
disappointment also for China's champions Liu Xiang. He felt after
crashing into the first barrier, the second time he has failed to
clear the first hurdle in consecutive games. But Usain Bolt
looked imperious again as he cruised to victory. He booked his
place in the semi-final tomorrow. And we will reflect on all of the
events to date later in the programme. We go to Greenwich Park
where there are high hopes in the team dressage. The first stop is
the North Greenwich arena. It is the last four individual apparatus
finals. And we're under way in the finals. And we're under way in the
men's parallel bars final. The third highest qualifier is the
next to go. He has been world champion on this piece of apparatus
and is the current Chinese champion. Soft shoulders, ideal for this
apparatus. And a clean handstand. Double pike, high above the rails.
And no hesitation at all. Here is the big release. This is
great stuff. Another double pike. And that is
his superb performance. That is what you call a parallel bars
routine. It was incredible, ever think you could wish for. Will his
physique is made for the apparatus. It opens all sorts of possibilities
up for different types of work. Super-strong. He has to generate
the swing. But loughs that arm out as soon as possible. Beautiful
technique. A lot of people go to the upper arms, he goes to grip.
The double pike was just a dream. That was sober stuff.
qualification the highest score was 15.86. It is that 15.966. Feng Zhe
in the lead. Anti also has some different work.
Watch carefully for the does my. -- the dismount.
He is very exciting to watch. Incredible strength on the Rings as
well. He is an all round silver medallist.
A really sharp start. Those somersaults are so difficult to
perfect, but he has got them nailed. Great opening half of this routine.
Into that double. Lovely straight body.
Just to that tiny adjustment. Of such an exciting routine. But a few
tiny performance errors. For me he was absolutely on fire. I thought
at the start that he was swinging so well he was almost going to
accelerate off the bars! Affair a bit of talk about stars
siblings today and we have two brothers from Japan going in this
one. Can they get themselves on the podium as well?
Nice and clean. Almost missed with his left hand there. Double pike.
Goes into a pirouette. Secure in that handstand. Very nice
work indeed. It is a good one! What a good routine. It is a good one.
He is looking at something like 15.8. He did not give much away.
did not and another great does not. They're using the balance of these
bars so well to lift themselves into the air. He completely Tesco.
That was where he just had a little readjustment of the hand. That was
a nice neat double back. But the parallel bars came and surprise to
him a bit. Some of the gymnasts were a tiny bit higher.
There will be a little battle there between him and his brother!
It is going to be tough. There is nothing like sibling rivalry!
He is outside the medals at the moment.
15.567 is the score to get up into 15.567 is the score to get up into
15.567 is the score to get up into the medal position at the moment.
It is all about the Tanaka brothers It is all about the Tanaka brothers
for Japan. There again that softback. You have got to keep the
spring clean. Now he is back in control. The mid-
section of his body is crucial. Steady in the Haan stand. Big
double pike. I do not think that will be enough to get up into the
medal position. The top two routines were faultless, really.
Anyone who wants to get in it up amongst those, you have to really
be pushing the boat out to be challenging for those top two
medals. That just had too many errors. But technically the start
was very impressive. He has got his shoulders above the bar of. Lovely
technique in the under its wing. Every gymnast will tell you that if
you can do that, you understand the timing. This is a pretty heavy
deduction. That will cost him a fiver! I think that was just
conference. When you see the slow- motion, he was in perfect position
to land but he just lost confidence along the way. He was watching the
replay and I think he agreed. gymnast to go. One left to go.

Russian parallel bars champion. not be surprised if he squeezes in
amongst those medal places. Because he has got a lovely body line.
Excellent combination to start. Lovely clean technique. Keeping
body tension. This is very good. to be in amongst the medal
positions were that. I think the important issue will be the start
value. How difficult the routine lift and you get a good beat into
the somersault. Watch it. Very quick hands, thatst a very
difficult skill and people don't give it the credit it deserves.
It's a var impressive way to get yourself above the bars, that was
smooth front somersault. Just the tiny hop here, now that will be a
0.3 deduction, the two-footed hop back. Every 0.1 going to matter.

Ladies and gentlemen, the Olympic medallists. Alistair Brownlee has
collected Team GB's 19th gold of the London 2012 games. The silver
to Gomez. Two brothers on the Olympic podium with Jonathan taking
the bronze, after a dramatic Olympic triathlon race. Gold and
bronze for the Brownlee family of West Yorkshire and for Great
Britain. Now we are zipping straight to Greenwich because we
were in the final stages of the team dressage event, Great Britain
has nerve won a medal in Olympic dressage, they lead the standings
going into the all-important last three rounds here. Carl Hester is

this man has led Britain to the European Championships, last year,
a tremendous team performance with Laura Bechtolsheimer and Charlotte

the gauntlet and really challenge Germany? This is the moment Carl
Hester, for Great Britain, with horse will have every advantage.

them. Careful here. Watch this spooky corner. It is where the
horse made a mistake in the Grand Prix. No, fine. Lovely piece of
riding. One of the finest horse men in the world, this man. Really
forward in that trot. Look at my base himself here in Great Britain
who sent him to Barcelona on the first of his four Olympic Games. It
looks as if he might creep over the 80%, and the team are happy. The
team are happy. Remember, just one year ago, helped Britain to their
first ever team gold, her Royal Highness the Princess royal with
her husband there, watching and Peter Philips. Has he gone to the
80%? Yes, he has gone to the 80%. They won team gold in the European.
It is first time Britain had done that. They won two individual
silvers. Is it going to be gold. Look that the extension! That is
fantastic. Look at that power in that horse. Flying down that arena.
And the one time changes here. This is what it is all about. Power,
speed, elegance. Control. Yes. And that is a young laid di, and that
is Charlotte Dujardin, and she, in less than two hours, will be the
third rider for Britain. The crowd are on their feet. Dare I put it
this way, but is it first blood to Britain? It is looking good, but, I
know who is the expert on the piaf and the passage and it is clear
and the passage and it is clear balding. She is there now. Clear,
after wonderful scenes there yesterday, 50 something is the new
cool of the age Olympic Games after seeing those boys go yesterday. Can
you explain in dress sadge terms, what the judges are looking for
from these performances today? and I will tell you that Carl is 45
and the two girls on the team Laura Bechtolsheimer Charlotte Dujardin
both in their 20s so similar to Nick Skelton going out first in the
showjumping team. He has set a marker there. And remember, he is
coming in on a horse that ways over 100 stone. It is picking up its
feet as if they are light as a feather. The judges are looking for
rhythm. Precision in the movements. They are looking for elegance and
that X Factor, they are looking for a horse and rider that come in and
say qvingspt "Look at me, this is a performance this is something I can
show off to you. The fluency of the movement. That was a really good
test. That will make that whole British team feel calm. Remember,
Germany have been unbeaten in the Olympics over the last seven
Olympic Games. They have set a standard that is so high no-one
thought they would get beat, but over the last few years the
training led by Carl Hester because he owns two of the horses competing.
He owns half of Charlotte Dujardin's horse. He has made sure
British dressage is the envy of the world. The next rider is in the
arena, we have two more to come. We are in a very very good position.
Thanks to that start from Carl Hester. Thank you clear. I will
Laura backdoor Scharner is going at about 20 past three. But it is
looking good because Germany and the Netherlands are chasing Great
Britain for the gold. But we moved once again to the north Greenwich
arena. Matt Baker is looking forward to the women's been final.
What nerve and skill and balance it takes to win a gold medal on this
takes to win a gold medal on this piece of apparatus. Just 10
centimetres wide. The dimensions of the balance beam
demand accuracy as well as artistry. It has a sprung servers to aid
acrobatic skills. But it is the narrowest of all Olympic platforms
so attention to detail is a must. Gymnasts have 90 seconds to perform
a variety of moves connecting one skill to the next. They use the
whole length of the beam to displayed steps. Jumps. Acrobatic
elements. And turns. Poor technique and fighting a losing battle
against balance will need to a deduction in points. Every routine
requires dance elements including a jump with legs in a 180 degrees bit.
There must be acrobatic moves, one of them has to be as somersault.
And a perfectly performed dismount. Any unplanned fall to the floor it
leaves the gymnast with 10 seconds to dismount.

Well we have already seen the parallel bars. And there is a lot
to come this afternoon. This is the event that has seen one of the
Champions' like Nadia Comaneci. And Gabby Douglas of the United States
already has the two gold medals and she is in this one as well. Can she
she is in this one as well. Can she she is in this one as well. Can she
make it a third? It is a good question. Before we
talk about gymnastics, we were just watching the dressage and you are a
massive fan's? I was almost a national champion
but I left to go to the United States. You said about the dressage,
it is very much a piece of cake! We're just expecting the gymnasts
to come in for the big final. We spoke about Gabby Douglas. But
others are in contention. There is a lot of tough competition. The
Romanian who was the Athens's Olympic champion.
Then Russia, the United States and China.
This been is just the width of a house brick. How do you make it
look so easy? For a gymnast if you have to think about how wide it is
then you will fall off it. You start on the floor and then on the
smaller beam and then you go until you get to this level.
The apparatus has changed quite a bit since you're Olympic debut back
in 1972. But then it was just a solid piece of wood.
When I do a turn, you can hear that. Before, I had a lot of bruises!
You were the first gymnast to do this somersault on the beam. This
was the first time in an Olympic Games. Was it always your aim to do
that bodied you think it was a crazy moved to try to do a
somersault? Everyone said it was dangers. Now
everybody is doing it. Before 1970 to be said, nobody will do that. I
said, we will see. And this has happened.
Gymnastics has come on a lot since when he last competed. And the
somersault collection is now a required skill. You will see many
impressive somersaults today. the same with a confidence thing,
if you do not think about how narrow it is? You just have to
think about the pointers for each skill that you coach may remind you
about. You do not think about what might go wrong but what you have to
do to get it right. And how do you weigh up the difficulty with the
execution? How much do you go all out and how much to think, I will
stay within my reach and do it as perfectly as possible? You can do
the most difficult routine but it is less likely then that you can
perform it as well. I have tried many different skills but you want
to get them right when you compete. You need to be confident that he
can do them well. And if not then do easier skills and perform them
better. We have spoken about that confidence. We have the former
Olympic champion coming up next. She is now 24 years old. Experience
is a big plus. The first time you are competing, it is more difficult.
Coming out there in that big coat, keeping her body as warm as
possible. Gabby Douglas has had a wonderful competition so far. Can

Let's hope there are no tears from Komova in this final. This is set
interesting line-up. The top nations.
The gymnasts just making the beans how they like it. It has become
something that they like to do. It is a ritual.
Sui Lu, the first we see. What can we expect? She is the current world
champion. We know that she can deliver. Pike front somersault
immediately back into the flip. Super high front somersault with
half turn. She is the only one to perform it at this level.
Straight into the back flip. That is the first little hesitation.
Control on the spin. She is moving like that. She is going for
everything. That gives her a little bonus point. This has been a superb
routine. We need a sopor dismount as well. - first Super. That was a
great start and she is going to be very difficult to beat. Very
accurate. Just a couple of little adjustments.
She really attacks this. Very impressive. The head goes right
back. She gets her foot to the height of her head so the judges
will give credit for that. It is an E element.
She really set that double pike. Remarkable composure to perform
those moves one after the other. To link the Mall and to get through
the routine. It must be a feeling of relief. These gymnasts do a huge
number of proteins. It is the piece of apparatus that it is very
difficult to produce a good routine under pressure. You talk about the
penalty shoot-out and this is the ultimate test. Just posted a 15.5.
That will be very difficult to beat. Catalina Ponor knows what it is
like to win gold on this apparatus. It is very important for her to get
hurt rhythm. She works so fast. Just a little pause for the double
spin and that was just a little fairer. -- error.
Straight into the flip. She is on her way now.
As long as she works with this with him, she is OK. Another is of a
combination of three skills altogether. Artistic arms, she is
elegant. That was a fight. She has covered it well but the errors are
there. Two jumps that have to be included.
This was the gymnast that everyone expected to win beam. She has gone
for broke. That was one of more difficult skill than she competed
in qualifying. But I do not think she got the balance right. I would
say no, but we have got to keep the tension here! Budgeted some lovely
work. -- but she did. This could still get a medal position. But it
will not beat the first gymnast because they were too many areas
where she gave away deductions. You were talking about the double
spin earlier on in the routine as could see there was a wobble with
it. She only did 2.5 and you get credited in full ones. If it was a
triple it would have been worth more. They are very demanding, the
judges. If you're going to go for this work, you have to go for it
exactly. She had to do it if she was going to make an effort. But
there we are. She is down on her team final score. I very much doubt
whether that will be enough for a medal. You cannot tell because
others still have to come out and perform. Tiny Deng Linlin is up
next. She is 20 years old. She has been world champion. She did a
super qualifying been but has not the end of the beam at. Then a

Woods if they can. She is being precise with everything. Not quite
the same artistry with the arms and the body. There is a spin which has
That is a strong challenge. I could not see any errors. There was
nothing negative so surely that was a huge challenge. There was a
little step on dismount. Christine is the walking Code of points and
she did not make one negative comment. Here is a negative
comment! No, I was going to say the only thing the judges may pick up
on his there have points for rhythm, of the surety of performance and,
this is lovely, she did just pause quite a bit. The mere fact that the
whistle blew meant she was a bit slow on her routine than perhaps
the coach would want. It was a bit stilted. She might lose 0.1 or 0.2

her, to try and hang on. If she could have held the feet steady and
controlled it without moving the feet, she would have had a better
chance. Once you move your feet, but this was super. It was a pity.
It would have made a great competition of it all. Such high

The elegance, Chris. interestingly, her qualifications

I thought it was a lovely dismount. She might have taken a step back
but we have seen some with the chest down on landing so that will

lovely dismount. It was not to be on the been but she has had a great
championships. Indeed, I think it is fair to say she came here for
that all-round gold. She is an all- round gymnast. She is not a
particular specialist on one apparatus. The day she needed to be
on song, she was. That was interesting, a quick shot of
Catalina Ponor, literally clinging on to that bronze medal at the
moment. We did say it might be enough for the minor medals. She
did not get the foot behind. The back for it is meant to go behind
the front one and she had it at the side so it slipped down. Many a
gymnast will know that feeling. You are quite blind when you land like
that. It is knowing it is coming, here comes the pain. That is right.
But she is so athletic, really She will not have the third highest
score. This beam final has been surprising. There have been a
couple of spills. It all there's very quiet. Only one piece of
apparatus is being worked at a time. It is a test of nerves. The seating

Komova up after her performance. It is such a disappointment with her
standards and targets she was aiming for. This one could make it
all fine. That was not a very promising start. She is such a
perfect physique for gymnastics. Long legs, very supple. Beautiful
feet. She looks like a prima ballerina and she has superpower as
well. She really has been disappointed. Half turn into rate
front somersault. She is so powerful. Those legs of belie
tremendous strength. She has had silver medals. She has made it very
clear that is not what she wanted to go home with. She threw in the
towel, didn't she? Always a bit of effortless, doesn't it? That is the
marker of a really talented performer. This is very difficult.
She sits that out as well. Two vaults. Not the way she would have
wanted to walk away from the Olympic Games. What about the way
she just seemed to give up? What will they say about that?
Russian coaches these days seem very tolerant. I have watched her
in training be quite difficult. That was the first little sign.
They will have wanted to have come home with medals - the Russian team.
She has not chosen not to do well. If it is going good, she will be on
fire. Absolutely! Her mother was a gymnast. She was in the Soviet team
in 1985. From the cradle, she has been destined to be the great
gymnast. In the American team, you have to fight your way through
three or place. She is a typical gymnast. -- threw for your place.
So much promise. She will come again. I do hope so. She is a
special performer. Suspense for Catalina Ponor. There is one
gymnast left. You talk about fight and the next gymnast definitely has
that. We will have to wait and see. Viktoria Komova has no chance of
getting up into the medals. reminds me of Lukin. She had to
fight and she became the best in the world. That is the bit what the
Russian team has to find. She tried again to get into the listing. She
had to fight for a place and, at this time, she was not good enough.
Selection was proven correct. They have come here and stormed the team
title. They had won the individual all-around. One gymnast who picked
her to replace on the team is next. She knocked out Jordyn Wieber for a
place in the top 24. She knocked at her team-mate, the current world
champion. There is Alexandra Raisman, ready and hungry. What
will the next few minutes have in store for of Alexandra Raisman and
Catalina Ponor? She has at least managed to not cry today. That is a
step in the right direction. Deng Linlin leads with a score of 15.6.
Sui Lu has 15.5. The last gymnast in the women's been Olympic final,
Alexandra Raisman. This potentially for a medal. Of course a different
style altogether. Punchy. She has not got long leggy supper nurse but

got the join nicely. A leap into the tuck back. And this spin. Not
quite such a perfect straight pointed Tobe but no wobble. This is
a very important dismount. Double Arabian. She is there will start
that is a strong challenge. A very strong challenge. -- she is a bear.
-- she is there. If they could bottle their grit, they would get a
fortune. This combination - she had her hands down on the beam in the
ball around and it cost a medal. She was not chancing it this time.
She was quite low on the free cartwheel. This is super stuff,
isn't it? Double Arabian. Beautifully done! What a tense wait
for her and a tense wait for Catalina Ponor. Deng Linlin leads.
Sui Lu, what could have been for her? She performed very well. I am
surprised to see tears. She is hoping. She is hoping. All eyes are
up there. Goodness me! This is a tense few moments. The gymnasts can
do nothing more. It is all in the hands of the judges. Just a
reminder, the school she needs is over 15.066. Will she go ahead? No.
It is 14.966. Alexandra Raisman finishes the competition force.
Just as in the ball around. -- all around. Tears of sorrow for Sui Lu.
It is great to see great champions of the past getting a bronze medal.
Felix Sanchez is certainly in the mix. We saw his tears of joy last
night. It is definitely eight games -- a Games for the old people. We
are back to Greenwich. We saw Carl Hester set the standard in the team
dressage. That has got the Germans and the Dutch thinking. Laura
Bechtolscheimer is next to go. She was born in Germany and raised in
Gloucestershire. Her first pony was called Peacock when she was three
years old. She is in position to strike gold if her score and that
of Charlotte Dujardin will count. Hojris, her second Olympics. Her
first was in Beijing. Her horse did not like the big screens on that
occasion. She has done so much since. A team gold and individual
bronze at Windsor. And then, in Kentucky, team gold and individual
silver in the World Equestrian Games. Then the big one when a won
team gold for the first time ever in the Europeans and then beat
individual bronze for this combination. So, she was national
champion at 20 years old. Now the test of her life. She is trained by
her father. She is advised by the twice Olympic gold-medallist. This
is very definitely trying to put Britain in a position for gold in
the 2012 Olympics. That would be the first time ever. Steely
determination in her eyes as she sets off. She is a bit disappointed
with high marks. I am sure she will try to make up for that and show
everyone what this horse is made of. Good, powerful extended trot.

little with utopia. She needs a bit more energy and activity. She can
be more down on her hands if she is not careful. She has got him back
up again. This is one of his highlights. Good boy! It is amazing
how this horse has developed his confidence and partnership with the

trampoline. Coming up the home Mistral Hojris Hojris, the number
two for Britain! That is her father, Wilfred. The Princess Royal I'm
sure we'll be delighted with that. We are here to see -- they were
here to see his are we in the team silver medal, now well they see
Britain win the first dressage medal and will it be gold? Look at
that. A fabulous extended trot which showed all that grit and
determination. Look at him, he is changes. We did not see the mistake,
but, I did not want to see the mistake again. STUDIO: It all looks
German's right now. Clare, how healthy is the advantage with only
Well, it is healthy enough because we have just one horse and rider
remaining. That riding Charlotte Dujardin who only started riding
Grand Prix last year. Horse she discovered last year, called
Valegro, is one of the best in the world. He set a grand prix stalk
last year of 88 %. If she can do anything like that then the gold is
in the bag. The lead is certainly enough. 3:55pm is when Charlotte
will be performing on Valegro. We have had good news from the sailing
regatta today. Another silver medal from a snake Dempsey, the
windsurfer. There was also a chance in the men's 470. -- Nick Dempsey.
This was from a Luke Patience and Stuart Bithell. Let's see how they
conclusion of this contest for now. Australia have done enough. You can
just see them through the binoculars there. It is another
terriers against the experience of the Australian double-act who have
dominated this class for the last three years. They are the world
champions, no one has touched them. Australia will go into the medal
race guaranteed a silver and leading the fleet. Australia will
be the gold medal favourites. Great Britain, the only way is up because
the British team had secured silver. There will be celebrations in the
British camp. Luke Patience and Stuart Bithell have sailed an
immaculate series, better than any other British sailor. They have had
an incredible series so far, cannot say enough how consistent, how well
they have performed to be matching the Australian's head to head all
the way through this, with the experience they have and the number
of world titles. For these guys to come out in this big event, taking
second place in the last of the fleet races, it will be an
intriguing final medal race for Well played because that means a
guaranteed sold at least when they go in the medal rise on Thursday.
There will be a straight fight for gold with the Australian duo there.
I also have some news, I'm afraid it is pretty disappointing from the
Oldie's perspective. I was talking about Catalina Ponor and how
everyone was delighted with the bronze medal on the beam. That has
been a protest by the American gymnast and it has been upheld from
Catalina Ponor's perspective. Alexandra Raisman has been upgraded.
Catalina Ponor in her thirties goes home without anything. One of the
great. Super Tuesday, it is one of these things we talk about every
few years in American elections, the primaries before the
presidential election, but I think we could hijack it this afternoon,
possibility of three gold medals in the velodrome would be very CBE
Tuesday, wouldn't it? He would, following on from Super Saturday.
We are set for a golden afternoon in the velodrome for tea and GB,
Chris Hoy, Victoria Pendleton and Laura Trott are planning to have a
record-breaking medal haul. There are other options. We have been
hearing about the gymnastics. That continues now and coming up in a
moment it is the men's horizontal bar finals. That will follow this
medal ceremony and it is the women's floor final after that over
on BBC Three. On the dressage, you just saw the wonderful performance
from Laura Bechtolsheimer. Charlotte Dujardin is due to go at
3:55pm. Gold medal -- Great Britain is in the gold medal position at
the moment. That is live on the red button. On Saturday evening we
witnessed one of the most memorable evenings in British sport. Now we
are poor used for another couple of hours. Is the velodrome is in the
gold medal position for being the loudest a venue. They will lift the
