Good afternoon. Welcome to day 13 of the games, a day that sees 23

:00:53.:00:57.

gold medals up for grabs as plenty of sports which the business end of

:00:57.:01:02.

the competition. We will follow all the big stories here on BBC One,

:01:02.:01:06.

including BMX bikes crashing, horses dancing and 25 Women going

:01:06.:01:11.

for a dip in Hyde Park. That is the Olympic Games. Settle down for a

:01:11.:01:16.

busy few hours. Disappointment at the equestrian

:01:16.:01:20.

yesterday, but high hopes of another dressage gold in the

:01:20.:01:25.

individual event today. Britain's trio go from 3:20pm.

:01:25.:01:29.

Liam Phillips has recovered from a broken collarbone to make it to

:01:29.:01:36.

London. Can he follow Shanaze Reade into the BMX semi-finals?

:01:36.:01:39.

In three hours' time, Nicola Adams could become the first woman ever

:01:39.:01:44.

to be crowned an Olympic boxing champion, but only if she can

:01:44.:01:51.

overcome Ren Cancan of China. And it could be another golden day

:01:51.:01:55.

for Britain's sailors, although the weather is looking a bit too good

:01:55.:02:00.

at Weymouth at the moment. So it is disappointing that there

:02:00.:02:04.

is no sailing going on at Weymouth, but you only have to look behind me

:02:04.:02:07.

to realise that thousands of people here on the Olympic Park don't mind

:02:07.:02:11.

too much about the Sun being out. It is a wonderful day to celebrate

:02:11.:02:15.

a 13 of these Olympic Games. But before the lack of action on the

:02:15.:02:19.

water, let's catch up with what happened in the water in one of the

:02:19.:02:24.

most punishing Olympic disciplines, the gruelling 10k open-water swim.

:02:24.:02:28.

These are live shots off the spot that made his debut in Beijing.

:02:28.:02:32.

Keri-Anne Payne has had to wait for her big moment. She was the first

:02:32.:02:37.

British athlete to qualify for these games. She is now finally

:02:37.:02:41.

going for gold and go one better than the silver she managed in

:02:41.:02:46.

Beijing four years ago. The climax of the women's 10k open-water

:02:46.:02:50.

swimming will be live on BBC Two. We will join it for the closing

:02:50.:02:54.

stages. These are the live shots, and Keri-Anne Payne is still in

:02:54.:02:59.

with a chance of picking up victory. At the moment, the Hungarian is

:02:59.:03:04.

leading. Look out for the No. 15 for Keri-Anne Payne. Blue cap.

:03:04.:03:11.

Fingers crossed, she can make it to the front. She likes to lead in

:03:11.:03:16.

these races. She is an experienced swimmer. She is taking a break from

:03:16.:03:23.

a wedding to swim here, so it is important.

:03:23.:03:29.

Now, let's go to the south coast and the men's gold medal race in

:03:29.:03:32.

sailing's 470 class. Luke Patience and Stuart Bithell are guaranteed

:03:32.:03:36.

silver, but a convincing victory over Australia today, and that

:03:36.:03:41.

medal becomes gold. But to do that, they need to get on the water. So

:03:41.:03:45.

far today, that has proved problematic. Shirley Robinson is

:03:45.:03:49.

there for us. Can you explain the problem? Normally, we love it when

:03:49.:03:55.

the sun is out in this country. spectators are here, but as you say,

:03:55.:04:00.

no sailors yet. The sailing in Weymouth has been fantastic. We

:04:00.:04:06.

have had 12 days of great breeze and fantastic conditions. Today,

:04:06.:04:12.

light winds. Just not stable enough to set a course. I did speak to the

:04:12.:04:16.

GB meteorologist, and she is confident that by about 3:30pm,

:04:16.:04:21.

things will be good enough to send the sailors out and hopefully get

:04:21.:04:25.

that gold medal for GB. We are getting some wonderful shots of the

:04:25.:04:30.

crowds, young and old with a Union flags. 20th French flags as well.

:04:30.:04:34.

It's a shame they have not had the chance to see any sailing. How have

:04:34.:04:40.

they worked out that there is not enough wind? Five or six knots

:04:40.:04:44.

means that it is even for the course and fair for everybody.

:04:44.:04:49.

Earlier, we were out and it was classy, like a millpond. Today it

:04:49.:04:56.

looks better. I am optimistic that it will happen later. But the

:04:56.:05:02.

sailors are waiting and the tension is building. For those crowds and

:05:02.:05:08.

our viewers, once the action gets going, what can we expect from the

:05:08.:05:14.

sailing today? For the British duo, they have nothing to lose. They are

:05:14.:05:19.

guaranteed silver. When you speak to them, they are so confident. I

:05:19.:05:23.

asked what the strategy was, and they said attack, attack, attack.

:05:23.:05:28.

They will be going for the Aussies. The Aussies are favourites for this

:05:28.:05:32.

event. They are world champions, but they are on the back foot. They

:05:32.:05:37.

are used to be winning by miles, and now they will be in a street

:05:37.:05:42.

fight. There will be lots of Aussie flags and Union Jacks. We look

:05:42.:05:46.

forward to the big battle. Only a couple of days of sailing left. The

:05:46.:05:50.

Olympic Park is bouncing every day because of the success of Britain

:05:50.:05:54.

in the Games. How has it been down there? What is the feeling about

:05:54.:05:58.

how our sailors have performed? Maurer, we are also guaranteed a

:05:58.:06:04.

silver medal in the 470 women, and they are on equal points with the

:06:04.:06:10.

Kiwis for that gold medal. All in all, that will be five medals. If

:06:10.:06:14.

we don't pull it off today, we could be pulling it off tomorrow.

:06:14.:06:20.

There is a lot to look forward to. We will try and send thousands over

:06:20.:06:25.

to the red button to join you for the start of this life. So you

:06:25.:06:29.

expect there to be some racing later? Don't quote me on that, but

:06:29.:06:38.

you have time for it could have tea. -- a cup of tea. At least you will

:06:38.:06:42.

get a suntan if nothing else. So as you saw, lovely weather down

:06:42.:06:47.

there and here. Haven't we seen fantastic scenes at these -- these

:06:47.:06:51.

games at Greenwich? It has been one of the places to be if you want to

:06:51.:06:54.

see successful British action, despite a disappointing day

:06:54.:07:04.
:07:04.:07:04.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 55 seconds

:07:04.:08:00.

And in and it is going to be a Nick Skelton, at his very best. It

:08:00.:08:09.

is a wait and see game now. This could be the first gold since 1952!

:08:09.:08:14.

And Britain has got gold. Will they be here to see Britain win their

:08:14.:08:20.

first ever dressage medal? This is gold about to happen. She has made

:08:21.:08:30.
:08:31.:08:32.

It has been good, and Lizzie Greenwood-Hughes is down there as

:08:32.:08:37.

everything comes to an end. Before we talk about today, let's talk

:08:37.:08:41.

about yesterday. Nick Skelton, just as we thought he had done it, he

:08:41.:08:46.

knocked over that fence, which was disappointing. Where were you

:08:46.:08:51.

watching? I was watching down here, where the athletes get interviewed.

:08:51.:08:56.

I get -- kept getting troubled by all the other broadcasters. My arms

:08:56.:09:01.

would be in the air whenever anything happened. He was the 6-1

:09:01.:09:04.

favourite at the start of the competition to win their individual

:09:05.:09:14.
:09:15.:09:15.

a muddle. Then # God save our We really thought he was going to

:09:15.:09:18.

win the gold medal, so when it Skelton had that fence down,

:09:18.:09:23.

everyone was like, what? He was so upset. He was crying when he won

:09:23.:09:26.

the gold and he cried when he missed out on the individual. He

:09:26.:09:31.

was very close this year, but Nick Skelton is still a marvel. He had a

:09:31.:09:38.

hip replaced a couple of years ago. He has broken his neck before. Kind

:09:38.:09:42.

of a walking marvel. To be out there riding at his age and doing

:09:43.:09:47.

this well is amazing. The they are all superheroes. What amazing games

:09:47.:09:52.

at Greenwich. You have had a plum job. Talking of superheroes, the

:09:52.:09:59.

American dressage rider Steffan Peters, who is riding behind me, he

:09:59.:10:04.

is riding to Avatar music, or was. Lots of fun music. I was talking

:10:04.:10:08.

earlier to Matt Baker and I was not allowed to say what sort of music

:10:08.:10:13.

we have. It said a strict embargo until 12:30pm. But now I can tell

:10:13.:10:18.

you we have had Black Eyed Peas, Phil Collins, Avatar. But to come,

:10:18.:10:23.

we have some very patriotic music. We have lots of Gustav Holst and

:10:23.:10:31.

escape to victory and Big Ben Charlotte Dujardin is the hot

:10:31.:10:34.

favourite for Britain, part of the gold medal-winning team for the

:10:34.:10:40.

dressage a couple of days ago. She will be trying to nail it at 3:50pm

:10:40.:10:45.

in Greenwich. In football terminology, the Lionel Messi of a

:10:45.:10:50.

horse world is a stunning horse, the horse belonging to Charlotte

:10:51.:10:57.

Dujardin. She is lucky to have that horse. This level is like the

:10:57.:11:00.

Premier League of dressage. She has only been riding at this level for

:11:00.:11:04.

less than two years, so for her to be at an Olympic Games at the age

:11:04.:11:12.

of 26, which is pretty young in a horse turns, is pretty great. The

:11:12.:11:18.

two of them were part of Britain's gold medal-winning team in the

:11:18.:11:23.

Europeans. Lionel Messi has obviously been at the top for a

:11:23.:11:26.

long time, but Charlotte Dujardin has only been doing this for less

:11:26.:11:31.

than two years. Before we let you go, another big crowd there.

:11:31.:11:34.

Obviously plenty of British interest. The big question is, what

:11:34.:11:39.

is the reason for choosing your own music and doing this to music?

:11:39.:11:44.

is called the Grand Prix freestyle. Dressage has three different

:11:44.:11:48.

disciplines. You have the Grand Prix, the first part of the team

:11:48.:11:54.

test. Then you have the Grand Prix special, which is more difficult

:11:54.:12:00.

movements. Then you have the Grand Prix freestyle, when you can do

:12:00.:12:04.

what you want. They have six minutes to impress the judges. They

:12:04.:12:08.

are not just looking for technical ability, but also artistic

:12:08.:12:13.

impression. So it is important that they wow them with some good music.

:12:13.:12:18.

Traditionally, some of the dressage to music was a bit peaky blokey. My

:12:18.:12:22.

manager thought it would not be very good. But we had some Black

:12:22.:12:28.

Eyed Peas, and everyone was like, wow! Daegu of very good marks for

:12:28.:12:32.

their artistic impression. People make a living out of making music

:12:32.:12:37.

for dressage riders, so this is a big competition. It has been packed

:12:37.:12:41.

every day, but we probably have the most avid out today, because this

:12:41.:12:46.

is the favourite dressage competition for the spectators.

:12:46.:12:50.

Finally, what time can we expect the British riders out? Laura

:12:50.:12:57.

Bechtolsheimer does at 3:20pm. Car Hester is not far behind. He goes

:12:57.:13:01.

at 3:30pm and then Charlotte Dujardin is the last to go at

:13:01.:13:05.

3:50pm. We look forward to hearing the music and seeing the routines.

:13:05.:13:10.

We will bring you that live on BBC One. Now we returned to the

:13:10.:13:14.

Serpentine in central London. It is a stunningly beautiful location for

:13:14.:13:18.

a stunningly Britain event. 25 swimmers battling the water and

:13:18.:13:21.

each other to be the first of the finish line. Keri-Anne Payne is

:13:21.:13:31.
:13:31.:13:44.

the black hat. Anderson is closer to us from the USA. Keri-Anne Payne

:13:44.:13:51.

is in fourth position. Risztov has led all the way through. Will she

:13:51.:14:00.

get the gold? Risztov of Hungary gets it. Goodness me, the Proms has

:14:00.:14:04.

gone to grow mouldy of Italy. Keri- Anne was just behind in fourth

:14:04.:14:12.

position. -- the bronze went to go Malby of Hungary. So close, but the

:14:12.:14:18.

gold, deservedly, Eva Risztov of Hungary almost led from the gun.

:14:18.:14:26.

She is out already. How has she done that after so much effort? She

:14:26.:14:34.

led all the way. I don't know how she can walk, Andy. Congratulations

:14:34.:14:41.

to Risztov from Hungary. It is an example of how fit she is to hop

:14:41.:14:45.

straight out of water and hardly look out of breath. We have

:14:45.:14:48.

swimmers come out of the water and be wheeled away in wheelchairs.

:14:49.:14:51.

Keri-Anne Payne will be disappointed with fourth place. We

:14:51.:14:56.

know she picked up silver in Beijing four years ago. She was

:14:56.:14:59.

desperately hoping to improve on that and pick up the gold medal

:14:59.:15:03.

here. She has been an amazing open- water swimmer for the past few

:15:03.:15:09.

years. It is her specialist discipline. After 10 kilometres,

:15:09.:15:13.

Keri-Anne Payne was four seconds away from the winner. But that is

:15:13.:15:23.
:15:23.:15:25.

the way it goes. Well done for And well done to the crowds for

:15:25.:15:28.

turning up in Hyde Park. Yes, you can get tickets to be at the

:15:28.:15:32.

Olympic Park, but when events are free and people can turn up for the

:15:33.:15:37.

triathlon, road racing, wonderful crowds are there. Now, today at

:15:37.:15:40.

Wembley Arena, it is the qualifying stages in the women's all-round

:15:40.:15:45.

rhythmic gymnastics. Britain's Frankie Jones is desperate for home

:15:46.:15:48.

support to inspire her to something special. We will be on the road to

:15:49.:15:58.
:15:59.:15:59.

Wembley shortly. First, here is how All performances take place on the

:15:59.:16:03.

floor, a 30 metre square carpet laid over a sprung wooden base.

:16:03.:16:10.

There are four pieces of apparatus used. Hooper, a bore, club and

:16:10.:16:20.
:16:20.:16:33.

There are two distinct competitions, individual and group. 24 gymnasts

:16:33.:16:38.

perform four routines, one with each other apparatus. The top 10

:16:38.:16:42.

progress to the all-around final. Each individual routine lasts a

:16:42.:16:51.

maximum of 90 seconds. 12 groups of five gymnasts perform two routines

:16:51.:16:58.

and the top eight progress to the final. Routines last a maximum of

:16:58.:17:03.

2.5 minutes. For the first routine all groups use just one piece of

:17:03.:17:09.

apparatus and in the second they use a combination of two. Group

:17:09.:17:13.

exercises must show exchanges of apparatus between the gymnasts as

:17:13.:17:18.

well as intricate formations. If you would like to get involved in

:17:18.:17:28.

Olympic sports coat to the website. We said we had a mix of sport this

:17:28.:17:32.

afternoon. Before long we are back to Greenwich for the dressage and

:17:32.:17:38.

we have got BMX action as well. Now it is time to see Frankie Jones.

:17:38.:17:44.

She needs to get into the top 10 today to go through to the final.

:17:44.:17:54.
:17:54.:17:57.

Let's join Mitch Fenner and to the floor in the form of Frankie

:17:57.:18:07.
:18:07.:18:12.

Jones. We were not represented in Beijing, but here is Frankie Jones

:18:13.:18:22.
:18:23.:18:23.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 55 seconds

:18:23.:19:46.

in London. A fabulous piece of great start for a frank people stop

:19:46.:19:54.

two words, graceful and controlled. The audience are full of Union

:19:54.:20:00.

Jacks and they are not disappointed with that. That was a lovely start,

:20:00.:20:06.

probably her favourite apparatus. She negotiated it well. Not quite

:20:06.:20:10.

some of the huge difficulty we have seen from some of the more

:20:10.:20:19.

experienced competitors, but that was a really good performance.

:20:19.:20:23.

4th all-around in the 2010 Commonwealth and a silver medallist

:20:23.:20:27.

with hopes. She knows how to produce a performance under

:20:27.:20:37.
:20:37.:20:42.

pressure. Francesca Jones trains at Birmingham rhythmic gymnastics club.

:20:42.:20:47.

She has been a very committed gymnast over the years. Three years

:20:47.:20:52.

she worked full-time in centralised training. Really pushing herself

:20:52.:20:59.

here. It is a good score, it is difficulty that pulls her down. She

:20:59.:21:08.

It left her 4th at that stage and she eventually finished 21st and

:21:08.:21:15.

the aim is to be in the top 10. There was a partisan British crowd

:21:15.:21:22.

cheering -- cheering her on. Next she picked up a silver medal in

:21:22.:21:27.

this in 2010, so would it be enough to send her through? This is what

:21:28.:21:37.
:21:38.:21:42.

she did that on her first performance. Here is an apparatus

:21:42.:21:48.

that she got silver in the Commonwealth Games in 2010. Dare we

:21:48.:21:56.

hope for a higher score? We dare. I asked her before what was her best

:21:56.:22:02.

apparatus and she said this was the one she found the hardest. She has

:22:02.:22:12.
:22:12.:22:38.

confidence is showing through in this performance. Keep it up,

:22:38.:22:48.
:22:48.:23:24.

was a bit strange what the whistle. It is not a whistle, more a

:23:24.:23:28.

dramatic couture, indicating the end of the routine, but the music

:23:29.:23:34.

kept going. It is unusual because the music is very well timed and

:23:34.:23:40.

rehearsed and practice. Whether that was a slight problem or a

:23:40.:23:45.

technical hitch with the machines, it was a very clean, good

:23:45.:23:51.

performance. A very confident performance. She is building in

:23:51.:23:58.

confidence, you were right. She has certainly done herself and the

:23:58.:24:04.

sport very proud so far. Eight top 10 placing is a bit beyond her, but

:24:04.:24:10.

she will be looking to post two very good scores. It is the

:24:10.:24:16.

difficulty that will be a problem for her. Really good artistry and

:24:16.:24:22.

executions caused. She has achieved what she has set out to do,

:24:22.:24:32.
:24:32.:24:33.

Sitting 11th after those routines and doing herself proud. If you

:24:33.:24:38.

would like to follow that, you can press the red button. She has got a

:24:38.:24:45.

good array of teddy bears as well. Time to talk taekwondo. If it is

:24:45.:24:53.

new to you, this is what you need to know. The competition is divided

:24:53.:24:57.

into four weight categories for women and four men. Each division

:24:57.:25:03.

has 16 athletes who are competing for gold. Each competition date

:25:03.:25:07.

will feature one male and one female category. It is a straight

:25:07.:25:11.

knockout tournament with a repechage for bronze medal places.

:25:11.:25:18.

The final contest will decide who wins gold and who wins the silver.

:25:18.:25:22.

One point is scored by a powerful, accurate punch to the torso,

:25:22.:25:27.

although punching to the face is forbidden. One point is scored by a

:25:27.:25:32.

kick to the torso. The impact has to be with the ft below the ankle.

:25:33.:25:38.

Technical excellence is rewarded. If the athlete uses a continuous

:25:38.:25:45.

rotating movement, they will be awarded two points. Speed, timing

:25:45.:25:49.

and flexibility are required for head kicks. They are worth three

:25:49.:25:58.

points. The most spectacular are head kicks involving a continuous

:25:58.:26:05.

pain. They are worth four points. If you would like to get involved

:26:05.:26:13.

in Olympic sports, go to the website. If you do not fancy

:26:13.:26:18.

getting involved, perhaps this will inspire year. This was the

:26:18.:26:22.

preliminary round and competing for Great Britain was Jade Jones for

:26:22.:26:29.

Wales. She was victorious taking on her Serbian opponent. You can see

:26:29.:26:34.

the score on the screen, 15-1. Building up to this tournament she

:26:34.:26:39.

has had help from local businesses in a full-length in Wales so she

:26:39.:26:48.

could carry on competing. Here she is through to the quarter-finals.

:26:48.:26:58.
:26:58.:26:58.

But who would she face? In the Blue is Croatia's sportswoman of the

:26:58.:27:08.
:27:08.:27:32.

style. Hence the quick-fire start. The centre referees have been

:27:32.:27:39.

called in, sorry the centre referee has called in the corner judges.

:27:39.:27:46.

There is a head shot scored on the board. That is for the Croatian. I

:27:46.:27:54.

think the point has gone to the Japanese athlete. That is my take

:27:54.:28:04.
:28:04.:28:24.

on it anyway. It was the Croatian wrong way around, perhaps. We will

:28:24.:28:32.

find out. The video replay is designed for situations like this.

:28:32.:28:37.

We have got a view of it in the stadium and I am sure you will get

:28:37.:28:47.
:28:47.:29:22.

underneath, and that is why we need the centre referee and the video

:29:22.:29:32.
:29:32.:30:12.

the Japanese. This is an upset to the form book so far. That was a

:30:12.:30:22.
:30:22.:30:23.

good spin from the Croatian, but she did not get the distance right.

:30:23.:30:28.

If you are new to the sport, you probably will not know they are

:30:28.:30:34.

wearing electronic body armour. If you hit the body armour, you will

:30:34.:30:40.

get one point. You have seen a couple of head shots. Those are

:30:40.:30:44.

worth three points. If you do a spin before that, it would be worth

:30:44.:30:54.
:30:54.:30:54.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 55 seconds

:30:54.:32:19.

De Gracia looked as if she had grabbed one upstairs, but didn't.

:32:19.:32:25.

There was the body shot on their inside. Great head shot again from

:32:25.:32:35.
:32:35.:33:00.

But Hamada is looking strong and composed. She will have seen the

:33:00.:33:05.

efforts of her team-mate yesterday. She performed well. Didn't really

:33:05.:33:15.
:33:15.:33:33.

threaten the podium, but this is a differential here. Hamada looks

:33:33.:33:41.

much more powerful. That is the athlete in red, against the thin

:33:41.:33:51.
:33:51.:33:56.

air frame of the Croatian. Hamada looks strong. I eat my words there,

:33:56.:34:04.

as Hamada leads the foot of her opponent. The young Croatian has

:34:04.:34:12.

clawed herself back into this match here. Good attempt at a head shot

:34:12.:34:22.
:34:22.:34:23.

again from the Japanese female. That kyong-go was given by the

:34:23.:34:32.

Puerto Rican referee. Kyong-gos are a management. If you do anything

:34:32.:34:36.

that inhibits the fair process of the match, you take a kyong-go,

:34:36.:34:41.

just as both ladies take 8 point each there. Another push from the

:34:41.:34:48.

Croatian makes it nine to it. Those punishments, at the kyong-gos, can

:34:48.:34:58.
:34:58.:35:27.

lacking for Croatian support at this event. The Japanese athlete

:35:27.:35:33.

needs five good meals a day to keep the weight on. Five meals a day.

:35:33.:35:43.

Food heaven! Probably works fairly hard to keep the weight manageable.

:35:43.:35:47.

But every so often, competitors have to work hard to keep the

:35:47.:35:52.

weight of. For her, it is the other way round. She will be training

:35:52.:35:57.

three hours a day, two hours per session. So you need at least 6000

:35:57.:36:01.

calories to sustain that effort. It is understandable. Quite enviable

:36:01.:36:11.
:36:11.:36:21.

country's first taekwondo champion when she took the under 53 class in

:36:21.:36:31.
:36:31.:36:42.

shot over the top restores her lead. This is of mild significance to the

:36:42.:36:44.

potential British entrance today. If Jade Jones were successful, she

:36:44.:36:51.

would meet either of these two females in her next match. She has

:36:51.:36:59.

the Serbian, Gladovic, and that is coming up in a short while. She

:36:59.:37:05.

will fight against the Serbian. But it is back to Japan and Croatia

:37:05.:37:15.
:37:15.:37:28.

indicating that he thought it was a head shot in the flurry go exchange

:37:28.:37:38.
:37:38.:37:58.

yesterday. The Frenchman is on the right hand side. The other is a

:37:58.:38:08.
:38:08.:38:11.

Singaporean. They will both look at this. If that is the action that

:38:11.:38:21.

the Japanese coach has asked to review, well... You never like to

:38:21.:38:26.

be critical of a coach's efforts. They see different things than we

:38:26.:38:32.

do, but they're certainly looked to be limited or zero contact. Perhaps

:38:32.:38:38.

just touched to the back of the head. Successful. Well, I eat my

:38:38.:38:44.

words there yet again, because that has made the biggest difference.

:38:44.:38:52.

These video replays are coming to fruition here. There was the

:38:52.:39:02.
:39:02.:39:03.

mildest of contacts to the back of the head. That will be a three

:39:03.:39:11.

point a head shot. Hamada has done just enough. Can she sustain it?

:39:11.:39:21.
:39:21.:39:32.

Ana Zaninovic will be kicking Zaninovic. This is a three point

:39:32.:39:40.

game. A head shot would change it. Hamada staying active, and on the

:39:40.:39:50.

verge of upsetting things here. The oak, is that in the last second?

:39:50.:39:54.

Unbelievable taekwondo action. Don't look away, or you will miss

:39:54.:40:04.
:40:04.:40:04.

it. But it is taken away by the referee. The head shot was scored,

:40:04.:40:11.

but excellent refereeing from the Puerto Rican, are holding and

:40:11.:40:21.
:40:21.:40:35.

head shot. It was wiped away by the Centre referee. It is now 14-11. A

:40:35.:40:39.

video replay card has been used by the Japanese coach, and I am not

:40:39.:40:43.

going to criticise, because the last time he did it, he was spot on.

:40:43.:40:48.

But at this stage, because the points have been wiped away, it

:40:48.:40:53.

really is almost irrelevant. To be fair to me, he has now noticed the

:40:53.:41:00.

scoreboard. And after that frenetic exchange, the winner of the

:41:00.:41:10.
:41:10.:41:11.

contest... Hamada of Japan. That could change things for later.

:41:11.:41:16.

There may well be another Croatian medal at the end of today, but only

:41:16.:41:26.
:41:26.:41:30.

now if Hamada makes her way into Something of an upset there. Jade

:41:30.:41:40.
:41:40.:41:40.

is in action at 3:30pm against Japan's Hamada on BBC Three.

:41:40.:41:45.

Jade, you can't have asked for a much better start? Yeah, the points

:41:45.:41:50.

were going really good. The plan was perfect. I didn't feel at my

:41:50.:41:59.

sharpest. I felt sharper warming up. But the tactics were perfect.

:41:59.:42:08.

Stepping it up now? Hopefully. hair, the Japanese athlete, is she

:42:08.:42:12.

the fire to your expected? I was expecting Croatia to get through,

:42:12.:42:16.

but I have studied all of them, so I will go back through the tactics

:42:16.:42:23.

again. Talk me through that home crowd when he walked out for the

:42:23.:42:26.

first time? In it was amazing. I did not expect it when I came out,

:42:26.:42:33.

it was crazy, people shouting my name. The atmosphere is amazing.

:42:33.:42:37.

Congratulations to her. That is not the only good news for British

:42:37.:42:42.

taekwondo today. This is Britain's Martin Stamper, who was also in

:42:42.:42:46.

quarter-final action this afternoon. He fights later, after another

:42:46.:42:52.

impressive victory. He struggled towards the end. He was leading at

:42:52.:42:56.

one point and then got into trouble for running away from the Mexican.

:42:56.:43:00.

But with a couple of seconds left, he makes it through. More joy from

:43:00.:43:06.

the crowd. Martin, a tense couple of rounds,

:43:06.:43:12.

but you pulled it out of the last one. Yeah. It is really hard to

:43:12.:43:15.

score on the body armour. Maybe because they are brand new and they

:43:15.:43:20.

are quite hard. I just needed to bide my time. I was doing the right

:43:20.:43:24.

things. I thought I was unlucky with a few back kicks where I

:43:24.:43:28.

thought I hit the body armour. But I was doing the right thing. I just

:43:28.:43:33.

waited, and he was the first one to crack and take a risk. Then he was

:43:33.:43:39.

open to the head. How difficult is it to stay calm when you are at an

:43:39.:43:43.

Olympic finals and your scores are not hitting in the first couple of

:43:43.:43:48.

rounds? It was tough, but me and my coaches went back and decided to

:43:48.:43:53.

stick to the plan. Like I said, he took one risk and then he was

:43:53.:44:00.

opened. Stick with your coat and interact and make sure you stay

:44:00.:44:07.

calm under pressure. Serbia rather than Peru in the next round. Yeah,

:44:08.:44:11.

the one I beat in the Europeans. But he is really good, so I have

:44:11.:44:16.

got to go back, recover, look at some videos and do my best. Some of

:44:17.:44:20.

what it means to be out here at these Games after you missed out

:44:20.:44:27.

four years ago? It is unreal. I felt like dancing. I was just

:44:27.:44:33.

buzzing. The crowd just erupted, everyone chanting your name. It

:44:33.:44:38.

might have looked a bit of a boring fight, 0-0 for two rounds, but they

:44:38.:44:43.

still kept behind and took me through to the wind.

:44:43.:44:47.

If he is as good at one dancing as he is at taekwondo, I would like to

:44:47.:44:51.

see his dancing. If you would like to see him against the Peruvian,

:44:51.:44:58.

that is at 3:45pm. Jade goes at 3:30pm. The live taekwondo will be

:44:58.:45:01.

on BBC Three. If you are just joining us, I'm afraid to say there

:45:01.:45:06.

is disappointing news for Keri-Anne Payne. She would have been so keen

:45:06.:45:10.

friend medal in the 10k open-water swimming. She came in fourth, but

:45:10.:45:14.

she was up against the best swimmers in the world. She has

:45:14.:45:19.

interrupted preparations for her wedding to swim in this. Her fiance

:45:19.:45:23.

was watching. After 10 kilometres of swimming around the Serpentine

:45:23.:45:28.

in Hyde Park, Keri-Anne Payne came in in the blue hat in fourth place.

:45:29.:45:33.

Four seconds off the lead. Let's see how she is feeling after that

:45:33.:45:39.

exertion. It did not go my way from the start,

:45:39.:45:46.

unfortunately. I tried to lead, but it just shows that they played me

:45:46.:45:52.

at my own game by leading from the front. She did such a good job. The

:45:52.:45:58.

top 25 in the world are here, so to come forth is not too bad. It was

:45:58.:46:04.

really close as well. Not quite what I wanted for the crowd and all

:46:04.:46:10.

the people who have worked so hard to get me here, but yeah. It was a

:46:10.:46:14.

terrific effort. How much were you hurting during the last lap? I was

:46:14.:46:22.

hurting for most of the swim. have always said open water is

:46:22.:46:26.

about making the right decisions at the right time. I had to go and

:46:27.:46:31.

feed, and I missed the bottle. From then, I struggled to get back. I

:46:32.:46:36.

was probably working too hard compared to how I normally take the

:46:36.:46:41.

place. I did not have enough at the end. I know you have about 50

:46:41.:46:47.

family members here. David is here to. They are so proud of you.

:46:47.:46:54.

you. The support has been fantastic. I would like to thank my coach is

:46:54.:47:03.

and all the guys. Also Ben and Simon and lead and Sarah. And my

:47:03.:47:08.

family and Dave. I would not be here without them. Is that it the

:47:08.:47:16.

EU in open-water swimming? I don't know how things will go. It will be

:47:16.:47:22.

my last one for a while. I need a break. But we will say. It is not

:47:22.:47:32.
:47:32.:47:34.

David wants to say a word. That was so hard watching and that last bit

:47:34.:47:37.

you picked it up again and you did everything you could and we are

:47:38.:47:44.

also proud of you. Well done. Really quite emotional scenes and

:47:44.:47:48.

David Davies was the open-water swimmer who picked up a silver

:47:48.:47:55.

medal in Beijing. He tried to swim in the 1,500m and did not qualify.

:47:55.:47:58.

As far as Keri-Anne Payne is concerned now is not the time to

:47:58.:48:03.

look to the future, because making these decisions when you are so

:48:03.:48:08.

emotional is not the best thing to do. Elizabeth Simmonds says, you

:48:08.:48:14.

are a hero, well done, an incredibly tough race. Becky

:48:14.:48:18.

Adlington says, absolutely so proud of Keri-Anne Payne, I cannot

:48:18.:48:24.

believe I get to call her a friend. She is amazing, 4th in the world

:48:24.:48:31.

and such a tough event. She was quite emotional, but a strong and

:48:31.:48:34.

impressive performance from her. Let's hope it is not the last time

:48:34.:48:40.

we see her swimming. We are going live to the BMX a little bit later

:48:40.:48:46.

on and also the dressage. Right now a place on the top step of the

:48:46.:48:51.

podium and a place in the record books awaits Nicola Adams if she

:48:51.:48:55.

can overcome a current world champion and become the first ever

:48:55.:49:05.
:49:05.:49:16.

woman to claim an Olympic boxing I am a 15 kg and two-times world

:49:16.:49:21.

medallist. I was 13 years old, I was not nervous at all. I just

:49:21.:49:26.

could not wait to get in there. all started with her coming down to

:49:26.:49:33.

the gym with me. Did you intend to take her to a boxing session?

:49:33.:49:37.

did not realise they had boxing, she just went off and did her own

:49:37.:49:42.

thing. I knew she was not going to get hurt because they have got the

:49:42.:49:47.

trainers and the coaches there and it is something for the kids to do.

:49:47.:49:52.

It is very expensive, the choices we had to make, the equipment and

:49:52.:49:57.

everything and it has not been easy. The days of boxing being an Olympic

:49:57.:50:02.

sport for men only are over. Women boxers will be able to compete at

:50:02.:50:07.

the London Olympics. His women's boxing what we want in London 2012?

:50:07.:50:16.

A woman wants to box, she should be allowed to. I was not interested in

:50:16.:50:23.

women's boxing and I did not like to see young girls get hit. I could

:50:23.:50:30.

see the determination in the girl. Within 18 months we have got five

:50:30.:50:36.

in the world's top 10 in their weight. In the 2008 European

:50:36.:50:40.

Championships we got seven medals. How do you feel about women's

:50:40.:50:46.

boxing now? I love it. She has got this amazing smile, she has got a

:50:46.:50:50.

slight frame and she does not strike you as someone you would

:50:50.:50:55.

associate with boxing. Exactly, she has got flat feet and she is not a

:50:55.:51:00.

good runner, she has got asthma. She has got sheer determination and

:51:00.:51:04.

if it had not been for boxing, she would have been a little villain.

:51:04.:51:12.

Really? Yes. There was a time when it was nearly all over for you.

:51:12.:51:16.

had a serious back injury which left me in bed for a few months,

:51:16.:51:22.

which was frustrating because I am such a get up and go person. At the

:51:22.:51:26.

time the GB selections were going on and I could not train. I went

:51:26.:51:31.

from being able to do 300 sit-ups a day to not being able to do one.

:51:31.:51:37.

Did you think, this is it? That thought crossed my mind a few times.

:51:37.:51:42.

When I started punching again, I was so slow and I was overweight

:51:42.:51:47.

and I saw everybody else on the GB team fly up and down and I was like,

:51:47.:51:53.

how am I ever going to get back to like how I was before? I was saying

:51:53.:51:57.

to the coaches, will I be ready to come back to this level? They said,

:51:57.:52:04.

yes, you can do this. She wants to become the world champion, so she

:52:04.:52:13.

works hard to do that. It is because of girls like her that it

:52:13.:52:20.

is all going right. I have been boxing for so long and I have won a

:52:20.:52:26.

lot of tournaments. The European Championships, getting gold, and

:52:26.:52:31.

silver medals at the World Championships. What would it mean

:52:31.:52:37.

to have an Olympic gold medal? would give that Olympic medal a

:52:37.:52:46.

whole shelf. What a fighter and what a day for her. It is the first

:52:46.:52:51.

ever boxer to pick up a women's gold medal. You can see her this

:52:51.:52:59.

afternoon at 4:30pm. Her nickname his baby face, but she is a super

:52:59.:53:06.

tough fighter. But also Ireland's Katie Taylor has amazed us not just

:53:06.:53:16.
:53:16.:53:18.

with her talents, but with her considerable fan base as well.

:53:18.:53:22.

a long wait it has been it for the boxer wearing red representing

:53:22.:53:32.

Ireland, Katie Taylor. Unbelievable, I do not know if the viewers can

:53:32.:53:36.

appreciate this atmosphere, but it is blistering. It is more like a

:53:36.:53:46.
:53:46.:53:48.

football match. This is a dream come true for me. A standing

:53:48.:53:54.

ovation for a Katie Taylor. experience, her strength, her speed

:53:54.:54:01.

is shone through in that bout. feel like I'm in Heaven just now.

:54:01.:54:06.

The improvement she has made over a short period of time is immense.

:54:06.:54:16.
:54:16.:54:17.

Katie Taylor, absolutely superb. Who would bet against her? Big, big

:54:17.:54:23.

day for British and Irish boxing. Nicola Adams is an action at 4:30pm

:54:23.:54:27.

on BBC One and after that Katie Taylor from island steps into the

:54:27.:54:33.

ring. Let show you what is happening at the BMX area. It is

:54:33.:54:38.

next to the Velodrome which has given us some remarkable action.

:54:38.:54:41.

Today the men are in action and they are looking to make it through

:54:41.:54:47.

to their seeding round. You can see what an amazing course this is.

:54:47.:54:52.

Everything here has been built from scratch. There are just warming up.

:54:52.:54:58.

The men and the women compete on different courses. They are lovely,

:54:58.:55:02.

beautiful shots. Ian Phillips is going to be competing for Great

:55:02.:55:08.

Britain. We are also going to Greenwich for some dressage as well.

:55:08.:55:12.

Plenty of British interest. Many people believe we can pick up yet

:55:12.:55:17.

another medal. Hopefully a gold. Look how beautiful Greenwich is

:55:18.:55:22.

looking. What a wonderful idea to hold the equestrian action down

:55:22.:55:32.
:55:32.:55:49.

here. We can go live to see what is this year. This is a key test in

:55:49.:55:59.
:55:59.:55:59.

the build-up to the individual dressage medals. She has provided a

:55:59.:56:05.

very good start. I would say she is going better than she did in the

:56:05.:56:10.

Grand Prix Special and no major mistakes so far. Lovely half passes

:56:10.:56:18.

with the backdrop of the Queen's House. Sometimes a horse gets a

:56:18.:56:28.
:56:28.:56:31.

little bit downhill. We want to see him carrying himself. The extended

:56:31.:56:41.
:56:41.:56:42.

canter up to the judges' heart. -- heart. One-and-a-half pier West and

:56:42.:56:52.
:56:52.:57:13.

a slight loss of balance. No Three from Great Britain and one

:57:13.:57:20.

very strong contender from the Netherlands. This next hour or so

:57:20.:57:30.
:57:30.:57:35.

it is going to be electric before we get to those gold medals. As we

:57:35.:57:39.

come to the conclusion of her performance, it is her last chance

:57:39.:57:49.
:57:49.:57:49.

to really show the judges what the horse is made of. She has got the

:57:49.:57:53.

reins in one hand and turning the course, are showing she has got

:57:53.:57:57.

great control. A little loss of balance in the transition coming

:57:57.:58:07.
:58:07.:58:16.

out. The same again. That was a better transition. Some real

:58:16.:58:23.

highlights here. That is to keep the judges in a good humour as she

:58:23.:58:33.
:58:33.:58:33.

comes towards the end of her test. Equestrian theatre at its a very,

:58:34.:58:39.

very best. The Germans are not going to go down without a very

:58:39.:58:49.
:58:49.:58:55.

good fight. The three young ladies have started off in form. The score

:58:56.:59:01.

to be at the moment is 82%. The judges are marking for artistic

:59:02.:59:07.

impression and technical merit. This is the extended trot. The

:59:07.:59:12.

horse up slide across the arena with all four feet off the ground,

:59:12.:59:16.

controlled beautifully by this diminutive little rideable stop

:59:16.:59:26.

brought his hind legs together for a one stride. The judges will take

:59:33.:59:43.
:59:43.:59:44.

that into account. She looks very pleased. She is happy with her

:59:44.:59:49.

first Olympic Games. It is a very hot afternoon with very hot

:59:49.:59:56.

competition. Remember the leading Mark is 82% and that lead is with

:59:56.:00:04.

Holland at the moment. Adelinde Cornelissen is de to come, the

:00:04.:00:14.
:00:14.:00:17.

reigning European champion. Now there is the usual stewards cheque

:00:17.:00:23.

for the Spurs to make sure they are all within the rules. Those marks

:00:23.:00:28.

are coming in just a moment. We have got a little pause for 10

:00:28.:00:34.

minutes or so before we go into the last six. Everyone of the 21,000

:00:34.:00:38.

will be back in here for that very exciting finish to this Olympic

:00:38.:00:48.
:00:48.:00:50.

Games. The equestrian Olympics are better than ever. They go into

:00:50.:00:59.

second. That is a tremendous performance for this young 25 year-

:00:59.:01:05.

old Stark in what is her very first year in senior competition. A

:01:05.:01:10.

tremendous performance. Two more for Germany, three for Britain and

:01:10.:01:14.

one for Holland in the build-up to the individual medals for the

:01:14.:01:24.
:01:24.:01:25.

Germany have had such success in the press side over the years. I am

:01:25.:01:31.

as excited about the performance as I am over the music. Yesterday that

:01:31.:01:36.

BMX competition opened with a bang. One expert described the day as a

:01:36.:01:41.

success because no-one left the track on a stretcher. It is that

:01:41.:01:45.

kind of sport and the freshness of it has led to a lot of interest.

:01:45.:01:50.

You cannot get a ticket to watch it live, but we will show you the

:01:50.:02:00.
:02:00.:02:00.

Each race features 8 riders competing on a track with jumps,

:02:00.:02:04.

bumps and corners. The race that starts on an eight metre-high ramp

:02:04.:02:09.

and usually lasts about 40 seconds. The bikes are equipped with just

:02:09.:02:16.

one gear and one break. As a contact sport, collisions are not

:02:16.:02:19.

uncommon in BMX, although competitors must not deliberately

:02:19.:02:25.

impede one another or force another off the track. The lead rider may

:02:25.:02:29.

choose their line around the track, but on the final straight is not

:02:29.:02:35.

allowed to block the line of any rider trying to pass. The Grands

:02:35.:02:43.

Prix one as the front wheel crosses the finishing line. -- the race is

:02:43.:02:47.

won as the front wheel crosses the finishing line. 48 riders are

:02:47.:02:51.

competing for just two gold medals, one for the men and one for the

:02:51.:02:55.

women. The competition begins with a time trial qualification one

:02:55.:02:58.

where each rider races solely against the clock to determine

:02:58.:03:03.

their seeding for the main competition. A complex series of

:03:03.:03:07.

races follows, cutting the field down to two semi-finals. The top

:03:07.:03:11.

four from the semi-finals will enter the final to race for the

:03:11.:03:16.

medals. If you would like to get involved in Olympic sports, go to

:03:16.:03:19.

the BBC Sport website for more information.

:03:19.:03:23.

There are so many variables with this. We saw Shanaze Reade crashing

:03:23.:03:27.

out in Beijing. She did the same at the World Championships. She was in

:03:27.:03:31.

action yesterday and perform well, but it is quarter-finals day today

:03:31.:03:35.

for the men and Britain's Liam Phillips is looking to make his

:03:35.:03:38.

first Olympic semi-final. He needs to go quicker than he did weeks ago

:03:38.:03:42.

in the world championships, when he crashed and broke his collarbone.

:03:42.:03:47.

But in BMX racing, when you fall off, you get straight back on and

:03:47.:03:53.

go again. Helen Skelton is with Jamie staff at the Olympic Park. We

:03:53.:03:58.

are getting a wonderful shot of the BMX track. This is one of the

:03:58.:04:04.

hottest tickets on the Olympic Park today. He there are families who

:04:04.:04:08.

have never been to the Olympics who were desperate to come to the BMX

:04:08.:04:12.

because it is something kids relate to. You see banners all over the

:04:13.:04:18.

place saying, inspired a generation. That is fitting, because this is

:04:18.:04:21.

the one sport born out of kids being inspired by motocross. This

:04:21.:04:26.

is the quarter-finals, the first elimination phase for the man. By

:04:26.:04:29.

the end of today, 50% of the men's field will end their Olympic Jenny.

:04:30.:04:36.

Shanaze Reade -- Shanaze Reade competes tomorrow. With me now is

:04:36.:04:41.

Jamie staff, former BMX world champion and track gold medallist.

:04:41.:04:45.

Liam is in foreign gruelling day, because the quarter-finals is done

:04:45.:04:54.

over five runs, not to mention the competition. Yes, he has a tough

:04:54.:05:00.

day. He has also had surgery to deal with. Hopefully, he will be

:05:00.:05:05.

going fast. Yesterday, we saw most of the riders just wanting to get

:05:05.:05:09.

round in a safe manner. Unfortunately, we saw a few

:05:09.:05:12.

accidents and a couple of minor injuries. But all the guys will be

:05:12.:05:17.

ready for today and the girls for tomorrow. Not to scare people, but

:05:17.:05:21.

to give the riders the respect they deserve, we are mentioning the

:05:21.:05:27.

injuries. You cannot downplay the lottery element. In Liam's 8, he is

:05:27.:05:31.

alongside seven other riders, including some who have suffered

:05:31.:05:37.

massive injuries. These injuries are getting worse. As the tracks

:05:37.:05:42.

have got bigger, the accidents are getting worse. We are starting to

:05:42.:05:46.

get internal injuries to organs. Guys' hearts have stopped beating,

:05:46.:05:51.

we are tearing livers and kidneys. It is getting pretty hardcore. You

:05:51.:05:57.

have to give these guys their due. But after a few weeks of surgery,

:05:57.:06:00.

they are back on the track doing what they love. They deserve

:06:00.:06:06.

respect. I will let you hot tear it up to the commentary position.

:06:06.:06:09.

Jamie will be alongside the Ed Leigh throughout the quarter-finals.

:06:09.:06:14.

A long day for Liam Phillips. He will hope to be in the top two

:06:14.:06:18.

after three runs. If he is, he goes straight through to the semi-finals.

:06:18.:06:23.

It is blisteringly hot. You cannot back on what will happen. You can

:06:23.:06:27.

only be certain that the reception for Lynn Phillips will be as warm

:06:27.:06:32.

as the tarmac. -- the reception for Liam Phillips. I wonder what the

:06:32.:06:36.

atmosphere is like up there, because there is also the mountain

:06:36.:06:39.

biking up there. How much are they feeding off what we have seen on

:06:39.:06:44.

the road and in the velodrome? and Shanaze Reade have a constant

:06:44.:06:48.

reminder. Over my shoulder, you can see the velodrome. When they leave

:06:48.:06:54.

the gates, that will be on their horizon. So I hope it provides them

:06:54.:06:58.

with inspiration. I was with Annie Last at Hadleigh Farm the other day,

:06:58.:07:02.

and she has only been to the Olympic Village ones. It is hard

:07:02.:07:07.

for them not to get distracted. Shanaze Reade is in an Olympic

:07:07.:07:10.

apartment block alongside Victoria Pendleton. No doubt Victoria

:07:10.:07:14.

Pendleton has been celebrating, but that makes it difficult for Shanaze

:07:14.:07:19.

Reade. Those guys are trying to keep their focus. Do we expect Liam

:07:19.:07:25.

to go through today? He is a dark horse. He bounced back from that

:07:25.:07:30.

collarbone, but the guys behind the scenes are calling him a dark horse.

:07:30.:07:37.

He has strong competition. Pick a expect one of the others to take a

:07:37.:07:42.

medal. I was speaking to a multiple world champion earlier who won all

:07:42.:07:46.

his world titles when he was not the fastest. Liam is not the

:07:46.:07:50.

fastest. Anything could happen. Particularly in front of a home

:07:50.:07:53.

crowd. A soap, Helen will gear herself up

:07:53.:07:57.

for the action. Jamie is off to the commentary box and we are nearly

:07:57.:08:01.

ready to go there, but first, let's hear from him Phillips himself. He

:08:01.:08:11.
:08:11.:08:20.

You can't throw yourself off a hill and jump 40 ft jumps, being scared.

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

You will not win, simple as that. It was always going to be difficult.

:08:31.:08:36.

It was going to be tough. Time away allowed me to come to terms with

:08:36.:08:41.

the fact that if I am to do this sport, you are going to get hurt. I

:08:41.:08:45.

was training with some of the best bike riders in the world, but

:08:45.:08:48.

ultimately, there was a passion about it. It was always going to be

:08:49.:08:58.
:08:59.:09:01.

tough. Good start by Phillips. Oh, what a crash! Phillips has gone

:09:01.:09:09.

down. That look too bad to me. was a pretty hard for. It is the

:09:09.:09:17.

infamous step up. Crashed at the World Championships. But I am

:09:17.:09:21.

thankful that I have overcome that. It has been and gone. I have had

:09:21.:09:25.

the surgery and had the collar bone fixed. Afterwards, there were other

:09:25.:09:32.

injuries. There were bits and pieces that went undetected. It is

:09:32.:09:37.

the Olympics in your home country. I have seen the way in which

:09:37.:09:42.

everybody reacts to major sporting events - the football, the Rugby.

:09:42.:09:46.

Managers refer to the team having an extra man when they are playing

:09:46.:09:51.

at home. That is something to draw on. To be at the centre of that is

:09:51.:09:59.

cool. I can't believe the accident we

:09:59.:10:09.
:10:09.:10:11.

just saw was only weeks ago. You can follow him on twitter. He said,

:10:11.:10:17.

I can't wait to get out there again. Weeks ago, he broke his collarbone.

:10:17.:10:21.

Today he looks to make it through to the next round in the men's BMX.

:10:21.:10:25.

We will be there in a few moments. If you were tuning in this

:10:25.:10:28.

afternoon to watch the sailing, it is beautiful weather here on the

:10:28.:10:33.

Olympic Park. Lovely and calm, hardly a cloud in the sky, but not

:10:33.:10:38.

good for the sailing. In the men's 470, it is GB against Australia.

:10:38.:10:43.

They are racing for gold, but at the moment, there is not any racing

:10:43.:10:47.

going on. But those flattering -- fluttering flags are surely good

:10:48.:10:54.

news. Shirley told us they expect to get going around 3:30pm. We will

:10:54.:10:59.

keep you updated. Elsewhere on the BBC, you can see water polo on BBC

:10:59.:11:07.

take you to the brand new BMX track that has been built on the Olympic

:12:58.:13:02.

Park especially for these Olympic Games. It is right next to the

:13:02.:13:06.

velodrome. As Helen Skelton told us a few moments ago, that is a

:13:06.:13:11.

constant reminder of the success of British cycling at the moment. Dave

:13:11.:13:14.

Brailsford, the brains behind British cycling, is not just behind

:13:14.:13:18.

what happens on the track and the road, he is also behind the

:13:18.:13:22.

mountain biking and the BMX. Fingers crossed that can rub off on

:13:22.:13:27.

Liam Phillips, who is going for Great Britain. Let's hand over to

:13:27.:13:37.
:13:37.:13:46.

the intrigue and interested in each. We will have five races

:13:46.:13:50.

for each quarter final. The riders will score points according to

:13:50.:13:54.

their positions in each race. If you come first, you get one point,

:13:54.:13:59.

if you come second, two and so on. The riders with the lowest points

:13:59.:14:04.

then go straight into the semi- finals. We will have the final two

:14:04.:14:11.

races with just six riders. They will then join the others in the

:14:11.:14:16.

semi-finals. Five races in total. After three races, we take two out

:14:16.:14:22.

and then we have just two races with another two riders. Looking

:14:22.:14:27.

through the course, the track splits after the first turn. Jamie,

:14:28.:14:31.

we have been looking at this finish straight here. It is a lethal

:14:32.:14:36.

finish straight. A lot of the riders commentator on that

:14:36.:14:41.

yesterday. It does not look challenging from where we are stood

:14:41.:14:46.

and on TV. But there are some pretty steep transitions. And it is

:14:46.:14:50.

a bit technical. It has been catching riders out, so it will be

:14:50.:14:54.

interesting to see what happens. Hopefully, the riders have figured

:14:54.:15:00.

it out. The reigning Olympic champion said there are a lot of

:15:00.:15:04.

lips and some compressions coming through. Some riders have nicknamed

:15:04.:15:11.

the first obstacle the widow Maker! Hopefully, it is not! They will

:15:11.:15:15.

have taken a closer look in practice. These guys have been

:15:15.:15:21.

training for several days. A typical BMX rider puts a lot of

:15:21.:15:25.

effort into the first, second and third straight and does not focus

:15:25.:15:29.

so much on the last straight, but they will have paid attention after

:15:29.:15:39.
:15:39.:15:40.

the accident yesterday. We are in the start date with the first of

:15:40.:15:50.
:15:50.:16:15.

Quentin is one of the riders to look out for. The Australian is the

:16:15.:16:19.

wild child, absolutely covered in tattoos. But a lot of people are

:16:19.:16:29.

tipping him for great things. main man to watch is the rider in

:16:29.:16:39.
:16:39.:17:16.

Gate One. They are under starter's was trying to squeeze through, and

:17:16.:17:23.

he has dropped back. The Brazilian Renato Rezende has had a fantastic

:17:23.:17:28.

race. Khalen Young went down hard just there on the rhythm section.

:17:28.:17:38.
:17:38.:17:42.

Just got it wrong. So, van der Biezen in first. The Latvian Edzus

:17:42.:17:48.

Treimanis went down very hard yesterday. That was a very, very

:17:48.:17:58.

good race for van der Biezen. But Khalen Young has taken a big hit.

:17:58.:18:02.

That's very bad news for him. We mentioned him as one of the wild

:18:03.:18:12.

cards. Yes, he just could not quite get the inside line. For some

:18:12.:18:18.

reason, he had a big accident down on that third straight in the

:18:18.:18:21.

rhythm section, whether he just lost focus. You just have to lose

:18:21.:18:26.

focus for a split-second, and you're going down. It is such a

:18:26.:18:30.

technical sport, there is no room for error.

:18:30.:18:34.

ED LEIGH: We had a couple of people tweeting yesterday asking about the

:18:34.:18:39.

gearing on the bikes... Here we go. JAMIE STAFF: He just mistimed it,

:18:39.:18:47.

he hit the next lip, which sent him flying over the bars. But he is up

:18:47.:18:51.

and walking around, I think he is going to be OK. Hopefully he will

:18:51.:18:57.

be able to challenge for the next ride. He is a big man, he is

:18:57.:19:01.

wrapped in plenty of muscle, I reckon he should be able to shake

:19:01.:19:08.

that off. So, confirmation of that first run. The Brazilian, a total

:19:08.:19:13.

outsider, no-one saw that coming. He capitalised on Khalen Young

:19:13.:19:17.

going down. Then you have got the Ecuadorian in third place, Falla

:19:17.:19:27.
:19:27.:19:47.

Buchely. Over to the second heat. Fields, with Jimenez in the second

:19:47.:19:57.
:19:57.:19:59.

lane. JAMIE STAFF: Lane is still a good

:19:59.:20:09.
:20:09.:20:19.

official will say, riders ready... Within five seconds, the gate will

:20:19.:20:29.
:20:29.:20:46.

with a great start. Beautiful start. But coming up on the inside is

:20:46.:20:52.

Connor Fields. Connor Fields is leading. Good battle going on

:20:52.:20:58.

between the Frenchman and the Belgian. The Canadian Tory Nyhaug

:20:58.:21:04.

in third position. He had his spleen removed about 2.5 once ago,

:21:04.:21:08.

so he is just ecstatic to be here. But at the moment, fantastic race

:21:08.:21:18.

for Connor Fields. Tory Nyhaug came in in third place, and Liam

:21:18.:21:25.

Phillips got second. What a start from Liam Phillips Jason Day it was

:21:25.:21:29.

an amazing start, he got so much speed coming off the ramp, but

:21:29.:21:33.

unfortunately, Connor Fields just beat him to the first turn. How

:21:33.:21:40.

much of that was to do with the gate? Yes. It is important. But on

:21:40.:21:44.

the start, you have got to be super alert, and he was, and he got a

:21:44.:21:53.

brilliant start. But Connor Fields just got him for the first turn.

:21:53.:22:02.

The guy who broke his neck, Jelle van Gorkom, down in seventh. The

:22:02.:22:12.
:22:12.:22:24.

Latvian, Rihards Veide, was in for the podium, Connor Fields,

:22:24.:22:30.

finished first in that heat. Now, onto the next one. Remember, there

:22:30.:22:34.

are five races for each quarter final, so this is just the start,

:22:34.:22:41.

but consistency is the key. Yes, consistency is rewarded. After the

:22:41.:22:46.

first three rides, if you fall in the first two, then you transferred

:22:46.:22:51.

to the semi-final, you do not have to ride the remaining two. And that

:22:51.:23:01.
:23:01.:23:39.

powerful. Consistently one of the picked the inside lane. Gates down,

:23:39.:23:49.
:23:49.:23:49.

and they are out. The New Zealander just getting out in front. Big

:23:49.:23:59.
:23:59.:24:00.

crash there! He has taken the whole field with him! This is BMX, ladies

:24:00.:24:08.

and gentlemen, anything can happen, and anything did happen! That is

:24:08.:24:15.

absolutely unreal. I am pretty sure it was Nicolas long that went down

:24:15.:24:20.

first. I think he might have done his collarbone, which would be

:24:20.:24:30.
:24:30.:24:34.

typical. The two US guys have gone down. From what I saw, it looked

:24:34.:24:41.

like David Herman actually caused that crash, when his front wheel

:24:41.:24:51.
:24:51.:24:52.

just grabbed. That was phenomenal. We need to see a replay of that.

:24:52.:25:02.
:25:02.:25:04.

Willers, The only rider who escaped! Everyone's searching for

:25:05.:25:09.

the same line in that first turn, so if one rider goes down, they all

:25:09.:25:19.
:25:19.:25:20.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 55 seconds

:25:20.:26:10.

These guys are clipped in, so they at the start of Euro Olympics.

:26:10.:26:14.

huge blow for the Americans. Under starter's orders for the fourth

:26:14.:26:24.

the top ranked rider in the world, caught up! He managed to stay clear

:27:41.:27:51.
:27:51.:28:04.

crossing the line, you cannot do that in BMX. This is unbelievable,

:28:04.:28:08.

all of these riders so desperate for a good start, they are putting

:28:08.:28:14.

it all on the line. Kirkham eventually crosses in seventh. But

:28:14.:28:19.

I think it was the German who really struggled, he went down so

:28:19.:28:29.
:28:29.:28:34.

hard. Kirkham did not have a second to react, he actually ran him over.

:28:34.:28:42.

Willoughby Was unable to keep the league in that race. They come

:28:42.:28:47.

round, and you can see the German in third, losing his front wheel.

:28:48.:28:52.

And Kirkham goes straight through the back of him. It is phenomenally

:28:52.:28:59.

quick. We saw this at the World Championships, just silly mistakes,

:28:59.:29:03.

and don't forget, these guys have practised this track time and time

:29:03.:29:09.

again. Whether they are just super anxious, not focusing 100%, but

:29:09.:29:19.
:29:19.:29:19.

silly mistakes are happening. Interestingly, we have got three

:29:19.:29:23.

matchmm of limestone on the top, I don't think that will be making it

:29:23.:29:27.

any more slippery, but certainly, we have got guys brushing it down

:29:27.:29:37.
:29:37.:29:44.

accident for the Colombian. Helen, I think that has summed up BMX

:29:44.:29:50.

racing, four races, three big accidents. There is only one word

:29:50.:29:55.

to describe what we have seen so far, and it is absolute carnage.

:29:55.:29:59.

Liam Phillips is fine, he is in one piece at the moment. We have done

:29:59.:30:04.

just one run out of five which we will see in the quarter-finals. In

:30:04.:30:09.

the third heat, we saw an absolute monster. Everybody went out apart

:30:09.:30:17.

from the first rider. In the end, it was the New Zealander Willers

:30:17.:30:21.

who got his get out of jail free card. He looked over his shoulder

:30:22.:30:25.

and it looked like he could not believe what was going on, you just

:30:25.:30:29.

saw everybody else picking up the pieces of their bikes. It has been

:30:29.:30:33.

difficult to watch, difficult for anybody who knows anybody out on

:30:33.:30:36.

the track, exciting for those who are coming to this for the first

:30:36.:30:41.

time. I think this should have come with a public health warning before

:30:41.:30:48.

we put it on to BBC One. Let's just focus on Liam Phillips for a moment.

:30:48.:30:51.

The aim of BMX racing is to stay out of trouble, as we have seen,

:30:51.:30:56.

which is exactly what he did. Phillips did fantastically well on

:30:56.:31:00.

his first run. He got out early, which is what they want to do, to

:31:00.:31:04.

get clear of the traffic. Liam Phillips and Shanaze, because they

:31:04.:31:08.

have not raced that much this year on the World Cup series, some

:31:08.:31:11.

people have been saying that they have not got enough experience in

:31:11.:31:15.

traffic. But he was able to get away from the pack and put in a

:31:15.:31:25.
:31:25.:31:26.

really fast time. He did really well in the Time Trial, but you do

:31:26.:31:31.

not get a medal for that, unfortunately. Just worth reminding

:31:31.:31:34.

people that Liam Phillips is still recovering from not just a big

:31:34.:31:44.
:31:44.:31:49.

Birmingham in May and crashed on a corner, and snapped his collarbone.

:31:49.:31:57.

The awful thing about this sport is a broken arms and, Bourne's --

:31:58.:32:04.

collarbones are kinder for par for the course! I expect there is

:32:04.:32:09.

another broken collarbone out there already. People can see that live

:32:09.:32:13.

on the red button at just after half past three. Don't get too

:32:13.:32:20.

close to the action! I will try and hang out over here. I will take one

:32:20.:32:25.

step away from the rail and let the action unfold as safely as possible

:32:25.:32:34.

behind me. You can see that on the From the BMX track to the dressage

:32:34.:32:40.

arena, only at the Olympics! As the riders get to choose the music in

:32:40.:32:45.

the form to, I'm looking forward to see who opts for Justin Bieber. No

:32:45.:32:53.

scores are carried forward, we have some good hopes for Great Britain,

:32:53.:33:00.

Charlotte Dujardin and, is that still the case, having seen the

:33:00.:33:03.

competition out there? It is certainly getting a lot tighter.

:33:03.:33:07.

The British riders are going to have to ride out of their skin,

:33:07.:33:12.

probably achieving a PB, because the marks of the Olympics are much

:33:12.:33:16.

lower than you would see in general competition. We are down to the

:33:16.:33:21.

business and, the top six riders have been in action in the last

:33:21.:33:28.

third of the action, Germany had just gone into the lead, with a

:33:28.:33:34.

very, very high score. Not an Olympic record, but not far off it.

:33:34.:33:42.

A few minutes until Laura Bechtolsheimer rides, her mark is

:33:42.:33:48.

expected to be a liar. I have got to know my voice because I will --

:33:48.:33:53.

lower my voice to do so will be told off it by end to nowt. They

:33:53.:33:58.

are going all out for the individual competition, Germany are

:33:58.:34:03.

leading and also have the bronze medal position as well. But five

:34:03.:34:08.

forces are left to go, we will know in about half-an-hour. One more

:34:08.:34:11.

question, when we watch the cross country, we understand it is all

:34:11.:34:15.

about getting over the obstacles in the quickest time, and the show

:34:15.:34:19.

jumping, we understand getting over the fences. For people new to this,

:34:19.:34:24.

explain what we are looking out for. Slightly more complicated with the

:34:24.:34:28.

freestyle, because the writers can do what they want and are marked

:34:28.:34:32.

accordingly. But they do have to perform a certain number of things

:34:32.:34:39.

in it, when you think about ice- skating, you have to perform some

:34:39.:34:44.

things to get a good mark. They will be trying to perform with

:34:44.:34:48.

artistic impression, and there is no Justin Bieber, I have got to

:34:48.:34:52.

tell you. The better and more dynamic than music, the more the

:34:52.:34:58.

marks 10 to creep up. That is where Charlotte Dujardin will capitalise,

:34:58.:35:04.

we have got pond and circumstance coming, she has died Big Ben chimes,

:35:04.:35:10.

hopefully the judges will love it. We saw, plenty of smiles and flag-

Let hand you over to our commentators. Fingers crossed for

afternoon. We are into the last horses. She will be riding to the

music of the Black Swan. We are expecting AA very good score. The

:36:10.:36:20.
:36:20.:36:21.

three-time Olympic champion is in second place at the moment. The 18-

:36:21.:36:26.

year-old horse is due to retire after these Games. We have now got

:36:36.:36:37.

freestyle performances, her best performance last April, 87.6, which

:37:58.:38:04.

was her British freestyle record, but it has been beaten. What can

:38:04.:38:12.

she do? Her music comes from the Lion King soundtrack. The first of

:38:12.:38:22.
:38:22.:39:00.

of the leaderboard with three to go, and would mean Britain would

she beats 84.303 per cent, Britain will win an individual medal for

certain, with two more for -- to come. Fantastic! That is one of the

:44:53.:44:59.

best tests I have ever seen from a British rider in freestyle. And she

:44:59.:45:06.

knows it. She comes from Gloucestershire. And now, this

:45:06.:45:16.
:45:16.:45:26.

crowd have suddenly come a week. -- world too often. Could those gold

:45:26.:45:36.
:45:36.:45:55.

getting. A can't believe the focus this horse had today. Just having a

:45:55.:46:02.

wonderful time. And let's remember, four years ago when they first went

:46:02.:46:08.

to the Olympics, this horse was younger and a lot more spooky.

:46:08.:46:12.

Spotted the big screens and didn't give of his best. But today, on the

:46:12.:46:22.
:46:22.:46:46.

Here come the Marks... She goes into the lead. 88% artistic score,

:46:46.:46:50.

which means Britain will definitely win an individual medal, but what

:46:50.:46:58.

colour will it be? There are two more British riders to come and one

:46:58.:47:07.

from Holland. Oh, dear, it's going to be another very, very exciting

:47:07.:47:12.

competition! Now, Carl Hester, the man who has inspired British

:47:12.:47:22.
:47:22.:47:28.

dressage, the man born in Sark, and they are going to have a gold-

:47:28.:47:38.
:47:38.:48:14.

painted postbox there. What can he Britain, Carl Hester, and Utopia.

:48:14.:48:18.

This is the first time we have seen this, but I have had very good

:48:18.:48:24.

reports of the music. It certainly sounds like a good beginning.

:48:24.:48:34.
:48:34.:48:35.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 55 seconds

:48:35.:51:39.

wow! Both horse and rider have such mistake there. Back into another

:51:49.:51:49.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 55 seconds

:52:51.:52:51.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 55 seconds

:52:51.:53:54.

he has made up for that tiny little from one of the best riders in the

:53:54.:54:03.

world? A tremendous performance, and let's put it into perspective.

:54:03.:54:09.

If he does more than 84.303%, Britain will have at least two of

:54:09.:54:12.

the three individual medals, and that has to be a strong possibility,

:54:12.:54:22.
:54:22.:54:23.

after that test. That was fantastic. A man who has just completed his

:54:23.:54:33.
:54:33.:54:33.

fourth Olympics, 12th time in the British team. He rode in Barcelona,

:54:33.:54:37.

Sydney, Athens, and now here. And the crowd are on their feet yet

:54:37.:54:47.

again. He was part of that wonderful European Championship win

:54:47.:54:57.
:54:57.:54:59.

in Rotterdam on this lovely horse. And he could be on for an a Olympic

:54:59.:55:09.
:55:09.:55:11.

medal here. So, one rider still to come. Carl Hester is pretty

:55:11.:55:18.

emotional, which is quite a surprise. He is such a superlative

:55:18.:55:23.

rider. Two riders to come, a strong challenge from the Netherlands, and

:55:23.:55:31.

of course, then, the young 26-year- old Charlotte Dujardin, a pupil, a

:55:31.:55:35.

stable rider, of this very man coming out of the ring now, Carl

:55:35.:55:40.

Hester. Everyone looking to the scoreboard. Let's have a look at

:55:40.:55:44.

some of the movements for the moment. This was the real highlight,

:55:44.:55:54.
:55:54.:56:31.

the extended trot, this horse is wonder whether he will be just a

:56:31.:56:38.

shade disappointed with that. But one more British rider to come.

:56:38.:56:42.

That score means that Laura Bechtolsheimer is guaranteed an

:56:42.:56:48.

Olympic medal here in London. Fingers crossed it gets confirmed.

:56:48.:56:51.

I was hoping I could come home with a medal today after that

:56:51.:56:57.

performance. I get emotional thinking about it. He is 17 years

:56:57.:57:02.

old, and he has given me so much. That was the best performance of

:57:02.:57:06.

the week for us. He was just beautiful to ride, so powerful, but

:57:06.:57:16.
:57:16.:57:20.

so easy. I was just thinking and he was doing it for me. He is always a

:57:20.:57:25.

big, powerful horse, but music has never been his favourite thing. In

:57:25.:57:29.

this last 12 months, he has really knuckled down to it. They cannot

:57:30.:57:33.

practise music that often, and this music I have only practised once in

:57:33.:57:38.

competition. I have been through it 1,000 times in my head. But he did

:57:38.:57:42.

exactly what I asked, he dealt with the atmosphere, he dealt with the

:57:42.:57:46.

loud music, he gave me his heart and soul today, and it makes me

:57:46.:57:51.

very proud of him, because at the end of the day, it is a living

:57:51.:57:55.

animal, which you have worked very hard to have a partnership with.

:57:55.:58:03.

When they fight for you like that, it means everything. You have got

:58:03.:58:08.

Charlotte Dujardin to come last - what are your chances for a gold?

:58:08.:58:15.

To be honest, I have no idea. I just hope that, touch wood, I would

:58:15.:58:20.

get to stand on the podium at the end. If anybody is to beat me,

:58:20.:58:25.

obviously, I wanted to be Charlotte, she has had such fantastic rides

:58:25.:58:28.

over the last few days. She has done a fantastic job with that

:58:28.:58:33.

horse. I do not wish anyone anything bad, but if anyone is

:58:33.:58:43.
:58:43.:58:50.

going to be above me, I hope it is with Parzival, the challenge from

:58:50.:58:54.

the Netherlands, and it is a strong one. She won the European

:58:54.:58:58.

championships last year, ahead of the British riders. She also won

:58:58.:59:04.

the World Cup Finals, with a brilliant performance. The horse

:59:04.:59:09.

has been off during the summer, he was brought into the team quite

:59:09.:59:14.

late because of health reasons - will he be at his best? If he is,

:59:14.:59:24.
:59:24.:59:39.

produce some fantastic work. The lovely music from the Nutcracker

:59:39.:59:49.
:59:49.:59:52.

Suite as well. The get tremendous height there, really bouncing. I

:59:52.:59:56.

think this is all going to be down to little mistakes and errors, in

:59:56.:00:06.
:00:06.:00:44.

little bit tight in his neck, unlike Uthopia. But this horse has

:00:44.:00:54.
:00:54.:01:10.

other highlights. Lovely extended two, they have had five years of

:01:10.:01:20.
:01:20.:01:50.

international experience competing rather big. -- that appear or

:01:50.:02:00.
:02:00.:02:00.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 55 seconds

:02:00.:04:44.

music? Per fitly in time. -- Netherlands has done a great test.

:04:45.:04:52.

They are very, very happy. Well, now the marks are going to be very,

:04:52.:04:57.

very interesting. Let's put you in the picture again. Laura

:04:57.:05:07.
:05:07.:05:09.

Bechtolsheimer, on 84.339 per cent. Carl Hester for Britain with a

:05:09.:05:19.
:05:19.:05:21.

2.857. -- 82.857. Laura Bechtolsheimer, waiting to see the

:05:21.:05:25.

mark. She is the current leader. She will definitely win at a medal

:05:25.:05:32.

for Great Britain. Britain will definitely get a medal. What colour

:05:33.:05:37.

it will be remains in the balance, with one Test to come from

:05:37.:05:45.

Charlotte Dujardin. Yes, and what a fantastic performance she has given.

:05:45.:05:49.

If there is any ray of hope for the British it is that the horse

:05:49.:05:54.

sometimes comes behind the vertical, and is not always as good in the

:05:54.:05:58.

mouth as it might be. But no mistakes, she has not left anything

:05:58.:06:08.
:06:08.:06:08.

to chance. You see that appear wet from above, really amazing. -- that

:06:08.:06:18.
:06:18.:06:35.

won at its first ever dressage medal earlier in the week, it would

:06:35.:06:40.

be icing on the cake for British dressage if they could win another

:06:41.:06:47.

gold medal. It is not going to be easy, because this Dutch lady has

:06:47.:06:51.

done a very good test. Laura is looking to the scoreboard, waiting

:06:51.:06:58.

for the mark. These anxious moments, waiting for the results to go up.

:06:58.:07:08.
:07:08.:07:09.

It seems an age. Here it is, it is an enormous one. Now, Charlotte

:07:09.:07:14.

Dujardin has got to produce her own personal best. Laura will be a

:07:14.:07:18.

little disappointed. The best she can do is a bronze, with one to

:07:18.:07:26.

come. It is all in the hands of the last British rider. A Ricky a year

:07:26.:07:36.
:07:36.:07:38.

ago, going for gold, she has got to beat 88.25, she has done it, but to

:07:38.:07:44.

do it in her first final would be something else. Here comes

:07:44.:07:54.
:07:54.:08:01.

depending on what this lady does -- Laura could still get silver. She

:08:01.:08:06.

came to ride when she left school, she knows this wonderful young

:08:06.:08:12.

rider inside out. But then Charlotte went to Carl Hester, he

:08:12.:08:22.
:08:22.:08:22.

realised her potential, he put her on this lovely, lovely horse. None

:08:22.:08:28.

has Blewbury, he is only 10. They are partnership which Britain has

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 55 seconds

:11:17.:13:14.

And she is doing it, she is doing months ago, this girl had not

Perot wet, but came out just in bit more now. Well, what a

:15:09.:15:18.

performance, what a temperament. She has not come from a background

:15:18.:15:25.

that would put her with money to buy horses worthy of a title like

:15:25.:15:31.

the Olympic gold medallist, but sheer talent speaks volumes. It has

:15:31.:15:36.

been worked by the likes of Carl Hester, and here she is but a

:15:36.:15:41.

performance in which is in touching distance of a gold. She has got to

:15:41.:15:51.
:15:51.:16:05.

be the score of 88.196. -- beat the cheers knowing if she has one gold,

:16:05.:16:09.

or could it be this girl? She certainly has lived up to all the

:16:09.:16:16.

expectations. She got a 90% of British record in Gloucestershire,

:16:16.:16:24.

if she does that again, she could win the gold medal. Has she? She

:16:25.:16:34.
:16:35.:16:40.

has a very big score to beat, it is the back. It will be the crowd that

:16:40.:16:46.

tells her, I suspect, who has won. At the moment, Adelinde Cornelissen

:16:46.:16:56.

is in the lead. In third place at the moment, Helen Langehanenberg,

:16:56.:17:05.

with Damon Hill. This horse has lovely, correct work, but did not

:17:06.:17:15.
:17:16.:17:26.

have the power, and that one fallen absolutely silent. She has

:17:26.:17:36.
:17:36.:17:44.

done it! Charlotte Dujardin has iced the cake in style! What a

:17:45.:17:52.

performance! Britain wins gold and bronze in the last of the

:17:52.:17:59.

equestrian Olympic disciplines, the Individual Dressage! Well, that is

:17:59.:18:02.

something which is very special to be witnessing here this afternoon.

:18:02.:18:10.

And it must be so special for you. It is incredible. I did not think

:18:10.:18:15.

she had done enough. The great thing is that the judges have

:18:15.:18:20.

really rewarded this horse's correct training, and the harmony

:18:20.:18:27.

that they had together. There's the man who said, come and work for me,

:18:27.:18:33.

Charlotte. Oh, and why don't you try it on this lovely horse

:18:33.:18:41.

Valegro? And now, she is Olympic champion! This lady has got a story

:18:41.:18:49.

to tell! Richard Davidson, who has done so much for the sport. And

:18:50.:18:59.
:19:00.:19:00.

there is Mum. These are magical moments. There's the owner, and

:19:00.:19:03.

what an owner she has been. And one has to say, the lottery funding has

:19:03.:19:09.

also played a huge part, not just in the success of dressage, but

:19:09.:19:15.

indeed in all of the Olympic medals we have won, right back to the

:19:15.:19:23.

silver in eventing. The lottery has really shown what support can do.

:19:23.:19:27.

The world-class performance manager there, he has been so much part of

:19:27.:19:33.

putting the structure in behind the riders. He will have a big smile on

:19:33.:19:43.
:19:43.:19:44.

his face. You do not often see a smile on Will's face, but we have

:19:44.:19:53.

got one today. Charlotte has got such a temperament, a temperament

:19:53.:20:00.

which has brought her the gold medal! Charlotte Dujardin has won

:20:00.:20:10.
:20:10.:20:16.

Well, that's absolutely magical. She promised me she would not cry

:20:16.:20:22.

is she won gold. I am joined now by Charlotte's mother. She was

:20:22.:20:27.

phenomenal. Absolutely. The pressure was really on her. I am so

:20:27.:20:34.

proud, it is just unbelievable. is important to point out that

:20:34.:20:37.

you're not a family with jet loads of money, you have worked really

:20:37.:20:44.

hard to get to this point. Yes. We had a transition from show ponies

:20:44.:20:48.

to dressage, and we never had the financial backing. When my mum died,

:20:48.:20:51.

I was lucky enough to have some inheritance money, and I knew that

:20:51.:20:57.

I had to put that towards buying Charlotte a horse, and fortunately,

:20:57.:21:05.

she was able to make a donkey do anything. She made her first horse

:21:05.:21:10.

into a great horse. After that, thank goodness, I managed to get

:21:10.:21:17.

hold of Carl Hester, to put her in the right hands from then on in.

:21:17.:21:22.

Every parent wants lessons for their child, I just knew she needed

:21:22.:21:26.

a lucky break. She had the talent, but I never had the financial

:21:26.:21:31.

backing. So many times, you see children that cannot afford to go

:21:31.:21:36.

forward, and if you get a lucky break, which truly we had, it is

:21:36.:21:40.

just unbelievable. The British performance director has called her

:21:40.:21:45.

the ultimate Olympian, he says she is so focused, she does not see the

:21:45.:21:50.

razzmatazz of the Olympics - where does that come from? When we used

:21:50.:21:54.

to do showing, the big competitions, I used to tell her, it is just

:21:54.:21:59.

another show. So maybe it has just come from that grounding, who

:21:59.:22:07.

knows? She is a cool customer. team gold medal was incredible, and

:22:07.:22:10.

you and I had a conversation about how incredible it would be if

:22:10.:22:13.

Charlotte could win gold, but you must have been a bag of nerves.

:22:13.:22:18.

was. Everybody expects it, and that is the thing, when you know she can

:22:18.:22:23.

do it, as well as the combination of horse and rider, it is

:22:23.:22:30.

phenomenal. And what about the music? Yes, she did a pre- run of

:22:30.:22:34.

the test, with the music by Tom Hunter. We talk about doing

:22:34.:22:38.

something patriotic, because it was on home ground, and he did a

:22:38.:22:48.
:22:48.:22:53.

fantastic job. And so did your Isn't that lovely? Not the first

:22:53.:22:58.

proud mother we have seen at these Olympic Games. And this is what it

:22:58.:23:02.

means for the medal table. Those two medals have taken us up to the

:23:02.:23:12.

half-century. It is our 23rd gold medal. Lizzie Greenwood-Hughes - so

:23:12.:23:15.

many people across the country will think, dress size is not something

:23:15.:23:20.

which is open to me, but this shows it can be? I think that is really

:23:20.:23:25.

important. We saw the German rider earlier, but it is very hard to

:23:25.:23:30.

keep hold of these horses. Carl Hester, you have worked very hard

:23:30.:23:36.

to keep hold of Uthopia, as well as Valegro, you have managed to keep

:23:36.:23:40.

them in Britain... It has been emotional for us to keep the horses

:23:40.:23:47.

going. Anybody who works with horses will know that without the

:23:47.:23:56.

horse, we are nothing. To keep two horses at this peak, to finish in

:23:56.:23:59.

the top five at the Olympics, is very hard, it takes a lot of

:23:59.:24:04.

management. In the last few weeks, we have really had to cross our

:24:04.:24:08.

fingers. Every morning, you walk out into the yard and you think,

:24:08.:24:11.

please let them be all right this morning. You know that when you

:24:11.:24:17.

wake up as an athlete, or as a rider, you know how you feel, but

:24:17.:24:22.

the horse obviously cannot tell you. We have had so much back-up. Thank

:24:22.:24:27.

goodness for the lottery, and for the world-class team behind us.

:24:27.:24:30.

Because we treat them as super athletes, and I think they have

:24:31.:24:33.

repaid everybody with what they have done for Great Britain and for

:24:33.:24:39.

the team. You have done so much for British dressage, you were part of

:24:39.:24:42.

the gold medal-winning team earlier in the week, but it was

:24:42.:24:47.

disappointing for you not to get an individual medal today. It is not

:24:47.:24:51.

that disappointing, actually, because Charlotte is obviously my

:24:51.:24:58.

other half, so... Not literally, but my other half of my work side,

:24:58.:25:03.

we rely on each other. I always said that would give me a huge

:25:03.:25:08.

pleasure, and I always said that she was the gold-medallist. He is

:25:08.:25:11.

the best horse in the world, and Uthopia does not quite have what is

:25:11.:25:17.

needed on this last day, which is what happened to me today, I think,

:25:17.:25:22.

I just struggled a bit to keep his energy up. But Valegro is just the

:25:22.:25:28.

consummate professional. Well done, and if you're going to be beaten, I

:25:28.:25:35.

suppose, be beaten by the lady you have trained!

:25:35.:25:39.

Well done to Carl Hester, and huge congratulations to Charlotte

:25:39.:25:48.

Dujardin. Here she is, soaking up the applause. I must also say well

:25:48.:25:51.

done to Laura Bechtolsheimer, who picked up the bronze medal. We must

:25:51.:26:01.
:26:01.:26:02.

not forget her. It has been a remarkable Games for our Equestrian

:26:03.:26:09.

riders. Yes, it is an amazing story with Charlotte, the fact that she

:26:09.:26:13.

only competed in this style for the first time in January of last year,

:26:13.:26:17.

in the Grand Prix Freestyle. It is a meteoric rise. You have had a

:26:17.:26:22.

real mix of sport this afternoon. Yes, it is not often you go from
