Good morning, and welcome to the Olympic Park which, last night,

:01:50.:01:53.

witnessed history, as Usain Bolt claimed a unique sprint double. The

:01:54.:01:58.

first man ever to retain both the 100 and 200 metre titles. It was a

:01:58.:02:01.

memorable day for Great Britain as well, with three gold medals,

:02:01.:02:04.

including the first ever in taekwondo. And today, two more

:02:04.:02:13.

British fighters are hoping to continue that trend.

:02:13.:02:16.

It's been an emotional journey for Sarah Stevenson, who's looking for

:02:16.:02:26.
:02:26.:02:29.

a second Olympic medal. Could she make it a gold this time?

:02:29.:02:32.

Lutalo Muhammad finally has his chance at the arena, selected ahead

:02:32.:02:36.

of world number one Aaron Cook. Will he prove the doubters wrong?

:02:36.:02:39.

High hopes for Britain's boxers. This time, it's the men.

:02:39.:02:44.

Can they follow in Nicola Adams' footsteps?

:02:44.:02:47.

And it's another busy morning of canoe sprint. After a disappointing

:02:47.:02:56.

few days, can Great Britain find inspiration on the water?

:02:56.:02:59.

The action from Eton Dorney begins at 9.30, where we'll see Britain's

:02:59.:03:02.

former world champion Ed McKeever, as well as Richard Jeffries and

:03:02.:03:09.

Sarah Stevenson's last 16 contest begins at 10.30. Followed by Lutalo

:03:09.:03:10.

Muhammed. They'll both have afternoon

:03:11.:03:14.

quarter-finals, around 3.30, should they progress.

:03:14.:03:18.

There's a double bill of sailing, if the wind blows in Weymouth.

:03:18.:03:20.

Double medal hopes for Britain there in the 470 class.

:03:21.:03:24.

Shanaze Reade and Liam Phillips both feature in the semi-finals of

:03:24.:03:26.

the BMX. And, no action in the Olympic

:03:26.:03:30.

Stadium this morning. But the athletics tonight includes

:03:30.:03:33.

Steve Lewis in the pole vault, Sophie Hitchon in the hammer. And

:03:33.:03:39.

Lisa Dobriskey in the 1500 metre So, plenty for the home crowd to

:03:39.:03:42.

cheer on tonight. Last night, though, wherever you were from, you

:03:42.:03:52.
:03:52.:03:56.

simply had to sit back and admire a sprinting legend.

:03:56.:04:06.
:04:06.:04:06.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 47 seconds

:04:06.:04:54.

COMMENTATOR: The moment of truth This, the event where he burst onto

:04:54.:05:00.

the scene as a junior when he was just 15. Winning the World

:05:00.:05:10.
:05:10.:05:11.

Championships. He has dominated the world of its printing -- sprinting.

:05:11.:05:21.
:05:21.:05:39.

Not only at 200, but also at 100. clean start. Bolt out of the blocks

:05:39.:05:43.

well, he is already storming around the bend. Blake has a lot to do.

:05:43.:05:49.

Look at Bolt go. As they come into the home straight. Here comes Blake,

:05:49.:05:53.

running him down, but he's not going to catch him. Bolt is going

:05:53.:05:57.

to do it again. Watch the clock, 19.32. Gold all the way. Blake

:05:57.:06:07.
:06:07.:06:14.

argue that he has no equal. He is just incomparable in the world of

:06:14.:06:22.

Usain, congratulations, you wanted to come here and cement your

:06:22.:06:26.

legend,, you have done that, the double double. Tell me what that

:06:26.:06:31.

means. It is what I wanted, and I got it. I am very proud. I had a

:06:31.:06:35.

rough season. I came here to do what I had to do. Is it all the

:06:35.:06:39.

more special to celebrate with all these guys?. My coach is probably

:06:39.:06:42.

going crazy. We have been working hard all season, and pushed each

:06:42.:06:48.

other. We are happy. Finally, this year has not been the easiest of

:06:48.:06:53.

build-ups. You said you were 95% fit, and yet you have still been

:06:53.:06:57.

able to do this. Sum up what this means, in the context of the whole

:06:57.:07:04.

season? It is hard. For me, it was hard. I am really dedicated to my

:07:04.:07:09.

work and I know what London meant to me. For me, I'm happy. You are a

:07:09.:07:14.

legend. Usain Bolt!

:07:14.:07:20.

Couldn't have said it better myself. The first man to defend this title.

:07:20.:07:30.
:07:30.:07:36.

His fourth Olympic gold medal. No world records this time. What to a

:07:36.:07:44.

remarkable light. So, two golds for Usain Bolt. And, with all the

:07:44.:07:47.

Jamaican's on the podium, you wouldn't bet against medal number

:07:47.:07:50.

three coming tomorrow night in the relay. A fantastic time of 19.32,

:07:50.:07:54.

but no world record. That was left to Kenya's 800 metre star David

:07:54.:07:57.

Rudisha. For those who hadn't heard of him before these Games, last

:07:57.:08:07.
:08:07.:08:13.

night ensured that was about to An COMMENTATOR: This man is a very

:08:13.:08:23.
:08:23.:08:28.

special indeed, he is so dominant David Rudisha, the hottest

:08:28.:08:32.

favourite at these Games in track and field.

:08:32.:08:37.

David Rudisha, as ever, loves to be in front. That is a phenomenal

:08:37.:08:42.

opening. Can they hang on, they are starting

:08:42.:08:48.

to fade. Look at that. It is all about David Rudisha. Already the

:08:48.:08:53.

world record holder, already the world champion. Striding away to

:08:53.:08:58.

become the Olympic champion, how quick but it be, watched the clock?

:08:58.:09:07.

That is the world record! Unbelievable. The greatest ever

:09:07.:09:12.

800-metre race anybody has ever run that I have ever seen.

:09:12.:09:17.

This is the moment I have been waiting for, for a very long time.

:09:17.:09:21.

To come here and break the world record is something unbelievable. I

:09:22.:09:26.

had no doubt about winning, but I was waiting for a perfect finish.

:09:26.:09:36.
:09:36.:09:37.

Today, the weather was beautiful. David's father Daniel won a silver

:09:37.:09:42.

for Kenya, in the 4x400m team relay. And he was hoping to compete there

:09:42.:09:46.

too. But, with the early stages of that scheduled for yesterday

:09:46.:09:49.

morning, it was probably best he saved himself for that stunning

:09:49.:09:58.

performance last night. There's Great Britain's 4x400m team have

:09:58.:10:01.

made it through to that. It takes place at 9.20.

:10:01.:10:02.

Here's the full plan for the evening.

:10:03.:10:06.

At 7.45, it's the men's sprint relays, with Britain in the first

:10:06.:10:09.

heat, along with Jamaica. And around 8.40, it's the final of

:10:09.:10:14.

the women's 4x100m. USA are hot favourites, despite their baton

:10:14.:10:17.

issues at the last two Olympics. The world champions were top

:10:17.:10:20.

qualifiers, despite resting double sprint medallist Carmelita Jeter,

:10:20.:10:24.

and 200m champion Allyson Felix. And, as we mentioned earlier,

:10:24.:10:27.

plenty of British interest in the stadium in the pole vault, hammer

:10:27.:10:37.
:10:37.:10:38.

Now over in Weymouth. Olympic sailing has reached its final stage.

:10:38.:10:40.

And yesterday, there was disappointment, as the benign

:10:40.:10:45.

conditions prevented any racing at all. That does mean a bonus double

:10:45.:10:50.

bill today, as both Britain's 470 crews go in search of gold. Luke

:10:50.:10:53.

Patience and Stuart Bithell should be setting off about midday, wind

:10:53.:10:56.

permitting, with Hannah Mills and Saskia Clark in the women's race

:10:56.:11:06.
:11:06.:11:08.

about an hour later. Let's join I had better ask you for a weather

:11:08.:11:14.

forecast, is it more promising? looks a lot more promising, the

:11:14.:11:19.

direction of the winds should help the sea breezes build. Everyone is

:11:19.:11:24.

pretty confident that racing will happen. A very exciting today for

:11:24.:11:30.

Team GB, guaranteed two silver medals and in the hunt to upgrade

:11:30.:11:39.

those two gold medals. We will see both of these 470 crews in action.

:11:39.:11:46.

First, it is the men. They have to get one boat between them and the

:11:46.:11:51.

Aussies. A great battle which we all laugh. So, we might see them

:11:51.:11:55.

playing a round before the start, tried to get in front of each other,

:11:55.:11:59.

to make sure they start before the other one. I spoke to them

:12:00.:12:06.

yesterday, they said, we are going to attack the Aussies. The Aussies

:12:06.:12:10.

are world champions. They were the favourites coming into this event.

:12:10.:12:14.

But they are used to winning easily, they are not normally challenged

:12:14.:12:21.

like this. They might be on the back foot.

:12:21.:12:26.

If this is one of the smaller classes in the sailing competition?

:12:26.:12:35.

Yes, it is double-handed lightweight. They are small, the

:12:35.:12:45.

boats do not weigh very much. So it is very precise. It is hard to sail.

:12:45.:12:52.

A what about Hannah Mills and Saskia Clark later on?

:12:52.:12:57.

They have been on fire. They have done so well. They were pushed

:12:57.:13:03.

together a year ago, and Hannah Mills stepped in. She was a

:13:03.:13:08.

fabulous seller at youth level, a real talent at this level. She

:13:08.:13:12.

didn't think she would go to the Olympics. Here she is on the last

:13:12.:13:19.

day of the competition on equal points with the Kiwis. They are

:13:19.:13:26.

confident, enjoying the Olympic Games, no sign of nerves.

:13:26.:13:31.

You have been watching all of the sailing from the start. We know

:13:31.:13:36.

about Ben Ainslie. What has the overall Great Britain performance

:13:36.:13:42.

been like? It depends on today. They could be the top nation, with

:13:43.:13:48.

three gold medals, two and silver medals. If not, perhaps the

:13:49.:13:53.

Australians could be the top nation. Britain has been the top nation in

:13:53.:13:58.

sailing, since Sydney, so they will be disappointed to lose that crown.

:13:58.:14:05.

It is a big day in Weymouth, lots of anticipation. When you watch

:14:05.:14:10.

them go out, do you wish you were out there racing again or are you

:14:10.:14:15.

happy to be standing there, talking to us? It is hard work doing this

:14:15.:14:21.

as well. I suppose I know what is behind it, how hard they have to

:14:21.:14:27.

work, how much pressure there is on them. I do not miss that. But it is

:14:27.:14:33.

a beautiful sailing day to day. To put you on the spot, to think we

:14:33.:14:40.

might end up with two gold medals in sailing today? I really do.

:14:40.:14:48.

Their first Olympic Games, Stuart Bithell and Luke Patience. They are

:14:48.:14:54.

really confident. They have nothing Toulouse. I think the Aussies have,

:14:54.:14:57.

there is a lot of expectation on the Australians. They could well

:14:57.:15:06.

deliver. It is Hannah Mills's first Olympic Games. She is guaranteed a

:15:06.:15:13.

silver. They will be more relaxed because of that. Two gold medals

:15:13.:15:23.
:15:23.:15:35.

Sailing begins in Weymouth around midday. Now, let's talk about

:15:35.:15:40.

boxing because Nicola Adams from leads boxed her way to an Olympic

:15:40.:15:44.

milestone yesterday with her flyweight gold becoming the first

:15:44.:15:49.

the Olympic gold medal for women's boxing. Katie Taylor from Ireland

:15:49.:15:59.
:15:59.:16:07.

follow suit in the lightweight and COMMENTATOR: Nicola Adams

:16:07.:16:17.
:16:17.:16:20.

representing Great Britain has come out absolutely blazing. What a

:16:20.:16:25.

stunning right cross from Nicola Adams. A legitimate knockdown, the

:16:25.:16:35.
:16:35.:16:38.

counter will be issued. The lead has increased further. Nicola Adams

:16:38.:16:45.

has just made history. Olympic champion, representing

:16:45.:16:51.

Great Britain - and Nicola Adams! I have been dreaming about this

:16:51.:16:56.

since I was 12 years old. The moment is finally here and I have

:16:57.:17:03.

my gold medal for Great Britain. was a fantastic performance, you

:17:03.:17:08.

must be surprised at how well it went, especially the knockdown?

:17:08.:17:14.

Definitely! I was very surprised. But this is what I worked for. We

:17:14.:17:19.

got the tactics spot on. I have trained hard and worked hard.

:17:20.:17:24.

Tactics have paid off. I got in there and got the points on the

:17:24.:17:29.

board. All those years of wandering and having a bad injury and

:17:29.:17:36.

thinking, will I be able to box. Now it seems like a dream, does it?

:17:36.:17:41.

After my injury, I never thought I would box again. To think I have

:17:41.:17:46.

come back and got a gold medal, I could not ask for more. This is

:17:46.:17:50.

what dreams are made for. I would like to thank my family, my mum and

:17:50.:17:55.

brother who have come here and supported. I spoke to your brother

:17:55.:18:01.

before and asked him how he felt. He said, I never knew nerves like

:18:01.:18:06.

this will stop but he needn't have worried? Absolutely not. Nicola

:18:06.:18:14.

Adams is from leads, which means another medals for Yorkshire. Now

:18:14.:18:19.

it is for the men, and it gets under way about 1pm at the ExCel

:18:19.:18:29.

arena. Also, the BMX, and over the first two days we have seen it all.

:18:29.:18:34.

Today it gets serious in the semi- finals. Shanaze Reade was the

:18:34.:18:39.

Olympic favourite in Beijing, but finished 8th. Could 2012 bring the

:18:39.:18:47.

gold medal to the goal from crew? - - girl.

:18:47.:18:52.

To win the Olympic Games is everything to me. I want to be the

:18:52.:19:02.
:19:02.:19:14.

COMMENTATOR: She has crashed! Beijing made me part of what I am.

:19:14.:19:18.

I have a fantastic support team. My coach has brought me back from the

:19:18.:19:23.

bottom. I was in a bad place from the Olympics. It is about the

:19:23.:19:28.

support team and getting the right people around you. That has been

:19:28.:19:32.

the biggest key of how I got over Beijing and moved on and learn from

:19:32.:19:39.

it, is the team around me. Beijing was a stop-off on the wake to the

:19:39.:19:44.

Olympics and London. Now London is here, it feels right. Some other

:19:44.:19:49.

athletes might be feeling the pressure, but I am excited. I have

:19:49.:19:54.

been round the track and it is a good course. It suits everyone, it

:19:54.:19:59.

has a bit of everything, technical and speed. It will make for great

:19:59.:20:04.

racing. You have got to be so relaxed and calm at the start gate,

:20:04.:20:10.

because if you are not things can go wrong. You have got to want to

:20:10.:20:16.

go out and get out in front, but also be very calm. Become be hard,

:20:16.:20:20.

but it is the final and everyone is lined up and all the other

:20:20.:20:24.

competitors want to do the same thing. You have to learn to control

:20:24.:20:30.

your mind. I think for a long time I did not think I was capable of

:20:30.:20:36.

being an Olympic champion. It was a dream. I used to think, I am a fast

:20:36.:20:41.

BMX rider but don't think I can pull it all together. There was

:20:41.:20:47.

doubt in my mind. But now, if I am watching TV, and so much sport on

:20:47.:20:51.

the TV, I can relate to the Olympic champions and I think I can do this

:20:51.:20:58.

now and be the Olympic champion. Good luck to Shanaze Reade. She

:20:58.:21:03.

starts at 3pm this afternoon with Liam Phillips shortly after that.

:21:03.:21:07.

The canoe sprint races are almost upon us. At Eton Dorney both canoe

:21:07.:21:16.

and Kayak heats are set to take place. We have Ed McKeever in the

:21:16.:21:25.

200m Kay one. He is a former world champion. We have Richard and Helen

:21:25.:21:29.

Reeves at Eton Dorney. We have perfect conditions for a

:21:29.:21:35.

regatta. We have Helen Reeves, Athens bronze-medallist in canoeing.

:21:35.:21:41.

A lot of our hopes in the 200-metre races a going. What are the chances

:21:41.:21:46.

of Jon Schofield and Liam Heath? They have been successful since the

:21:46.:21:51.

discipline was introduced as an Olympic category in 2010. They have

:21:51.:21:55.

been on the podium in every race. We are holding they can hold on,

:21:55.:22:00.

there is only one more race. What about the women's kayak single?

:22:00.:22:06.

Jess Walker has already competed, but this is her a strong event?

:22:06.:22:15.

has been training specifically over the winter and changed coaches. In

:22:15.:22:22.

the K-For, the stroke rate is very high, so she will be looking to

:22:22.:22:25.

come out this morning I used the experience she gained earlier in

:22:25.:22:29.

the week. She needs to get out quickly on this first race and I

:22:29.:22:35.

think it will give her confidence going into the semi-final. The 200-

:22:35.:22:41.

metre races is not so demanding, but it is about explosive power?

:22:41.:22:47.

Absolutely, they work on the gym on the power. Lifting tons of waits a

:22:47.:22:53.

week. And they do need to get muscles going. They don't have the

:22:53.:23:00.

opportunity to let it anything rest. They come out of the blokes --

:23:00.:23:06.

blocks, start their stroke strokes and it is who can hold on the

:23:06.:23:11.

fastest. Richard Jeffries, we saw him earlier in the week. He only

:23:11.:23:16.

has one speed, which is very fast, but that is not good over 1,000m,

:23:17.:23:22.

surely that will be a massive bonus for him? 200m is discipline and he

:23:22.:23:27.

was here to compete in the 1,000m. He will be in his comfort zone

:23:27.:23:34.

today. This is what he spends his time training to do. He will go out

:23:34.:23:38.

there and try and execute it will stop he is someone who came through

:23:38.:23:44.

the same talent spotting scheme Helen Glover did and she had gold

:23:44.:23:49.

medal success in these waters? I don't think he will get a gold

:23:49.:23:53.

medal, but he will be looking for the experience, for him it is about

:23:53.:24:01.

Rio in 2016. Ed McKeever is in the Kayak single, 200m and he will be

:24:01.:24:08.

first out. He has been likened to the Usain Bolt of canoeing? He is

:24:08.:24:14.

the fastest man in a canoe. He came out all guns blazing in 2010 and

:24:14.:24:19.

set a target. He will want to come out and show he is back on form. He

:24:19.:24:25.

has a heat with the guy he was top of the podium at the European

:24:25.:24:29.

Championships. He will want to go into the semi-finals which will be

:24:29.:24:33.

more of a competition to him. haven't had a medal down here in

:24:33.:24:38.

canoeing sprint, what do you think our chances are? We knew it was

:24:38.:24:42.

going to be about Friday and Saturday for British canoeing. We

:24:42.:24:50.

did hope we could get one somewhere else. Chances are great. We have

:24:50.:24:56.

decay one and the K2. Both have not been of the podium since 2010.

:24:56.:25:03.

McKeever goes at 9:37am. Also raising the nation's hopes.

:25:03.:25:08.

They will be fast and furious and on the water. Whether it is the

:25:08.:25:12.

career with the double ended blades and the canoeists with their

:25:12.:25:17.

singles. This is the guide from Eton Dorney.

:25:17.:25:24.

Canoe sprint, there are two distinct types. A canoe and Kayak.

:25:24.:25:31.

The Kayak his race by one, two or for competitors. Known as K1, K2

:25:32.:25:39.

and K four, and Kayak events are contested by men over distances of

:25:39.:25:47.

201,000 metres. Women compete over 205 hundred metres. There are one

:25:47.:25:54.

or two competitors are known as C1, and C2. It is contested over

:25:54.:25:59.

201,000 metres. It is propelled from a kneeling position using a

:25:59.:26:04.

single bladed pedals and using a stroke on one side. The first to

:26:04.:26:10.

cross the finish line is a winner, but a Photofit to confirm results.

:26:10.:26:14.

Dead heats during qualifying stages will see both competitors progress,

:26:14.:26:20.

but they might be forced to do the but they might be forced to do the

:26:20.:26:23.

race again if limited places. If you would like to get involved

:26:23.:26:33.
:26:33.:26:34.

: in terms of what you are about to see it is the shorter 200m you are

:26:34.:26:39.

about to see. It is dominated by Germany and Hungary. But there was

:26:39.:26:42.

a gold medal for Australia here so they, and we could see Great

:26:42.:26:47.

Britain doing well. There will be a series of heats with the best

:26:47.:26:51.

progressing to the semi-finals later. Let's start of a journey

:26:51.:26:55.

from the Olympic Park over to where it will all be happening at Eton

:26:55.:27:00.

Dorney, right over to the West of London. 25 miles West. It is the

:27:00.:27:04.

home of the growing so you will have seen this stretch of water

:27:04.:27:08.

from the start. Great Britain has done very well on this stretch of

:27:08.:27:14.

water. We will be starting with the men's 200-metre kayak singles. On

:27:14.:27:18.

the water, lookout for Ed McKeever, Great Britain's former world

:27:18.:27:24.

champion. He will be going in the second of the three heats. Let's

:27:24.:27:34.
:27:34.:27:38.

join Helen Reeves alongside Andrew Championships and the European

:27:38.:27:46.

Championships, but they off fast, explosive and buried exciting. We

:27:46.:27:56.
:27:56.:27:56.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 47 seconds

:27:56.:29:09.

4th Olympic Games. He was a world for Ecuador. Murray Stuart, we are

:29:09.:29:14.

told after his celebrations winning Australia so they, might be feeling

:29:14.:29:24.

fragile. The Tunisian, finished 5th in the K1 500m at the World Cup in

:29:24.:29:34.
:29:34.:29:34.

hungry last year. Conditions, just perfect for racing this morning.

:29:34.:29:39.

Tactics here, Helen Reeves is go out hard and hang on. Technique

:29:39.:29:45.

does come into it but there is raw power? Absolutely, they will get

:29:45.:29:49.

her strike-rate up very high. Then it will be about who can hold on to

:29:49.:29:59.
:29:59.:30:23.

the finish line. The first five go high. Canada, initially with the

:30:23.:30:29.

lead. Siemionowski hanging with them. Maybe with something in

:30:29.:30:39.
:30:39.:30:55.

reserve. De Jonge takes it for maybe the Tunisian, Mrabet.

:30:55.:31:01.

The De Jonge of Canada, winning that one, in just over 35 seconds.

:31:01.:31:07.

It is about making sure you are in there, and getting a decent lane

:31:07.:31:13.

for the semi-final. Those six going through. But Mrabet offered to

:31:13.:31:18.

busier, missing out. An explosive start, they can't

:31:18.:31:24.

afford to lose anything at the start of this 200 metres race.

:31:24.:31:30.

Getting that stroke rate extremely high. And that drive through those

:31:30.:31:40.
:31:40.:31:41.

paddle blades. Almost three strokes a second as they power out. Then it

:31:41.:31:47.

is about maintaining that speed. You can see Ed McKeever is one of

:31:47.:31:56.

the quickest starters of the game, one of the lighter men. There are

:31:56.:32:06.
:32:06.:32:17.

more powerful men but it is about fastest 6th place going through to

:32:17.:32:23.

the semi-final, so time is important. Siemionowski, the world

:32:23.:32:29.

champion from Poland looking comfortable. I think he had some or

:32:29.:32:35.

in reserve. In the semi-finals, will be looking for a decent lane

:32:35.:32:45.
:32:45.:32:51.

draw into the final. De Jonge going A couple more of these heat on the

:32:52.:32:56.

way. This is really an intense sprinting distance.

:32:56.:33:02.

Yes, indeed. I spoke to Ed McKeever, going for Great Britain in the next

:33:02.:33:11.

heat. He said, aerobically, it doesn't require that much. But what

:33:11.:33:19.

it does require is plenty of power, you need to be flying from the

:33:19.:33:25.

start. Ed McKeever is the fastest man, the best in the world. He was

:33:25.:33:31.

world champion and European champion, silver this year. He has

:33:31.:33:36.

said that has made him more hungry to win the gold medal here at the

:33:36.:33:42.

Olympics. He has put everything to one side, including his impending

:33:42.:33:48.

marriage in September. He has led her to plan anything on her own, to

:33:48.:33:52.

concentrate on winning a gold medal for Great Britain. It's not the

:33:52.:33:59.

first time I have heard that kind of story. A few more days before he

:33:59.:34:06.

can do that. How well does he have to do in this heat? He is almost

:34:06.:34:13.

guaranteed a spot. What is important is you want to do well

:34:13.:34:18.

because you want a decent lane draw in the semi-finals. There won't be

:34:18.:34:25.

much easing down as you have seen from Usain Bolt. Because over 200

:34:25.:34:30.

bidders, you have to go hard from the start and everyone is flat out.

:34:30.:34:37.

You said yesterday, it was the Germans and Hungarians dominating

:34:37.:34:44.

the longer distances. This is a little more shared, Poland

:34:45.:34:51.

providing the main challenge to Ed McKeever. Later on, John Schofield

:34:51.:35:01.
:35:01.:35:07.

and Liam Heath have a huge chance. 90 strokes within that time. The

:35:08.:35:13.

chance of something going slightly wrong will have a huge impact. We

:35:13.:35:19.

know that Ed McKeever, Liam Heath and John Schofield have proven in

:35:19.:35:23.

the past they are capable of being the best in the world and we hope

:35:23.:35:30.

they can prove that today. Their heat is coming up in a moment.

:35:30.:35:38.

Getting ready for that heat, let us join our commentators.

:35:39.:35:46.

A roar from the crowd for this man in lane five. A real hope for a

:35:46.:35:50.

gold medal, he hasn't been away from the podium in the last few

:35:50.:35:59.

years. Du gus macro, almost one foot

:35:59.:36:09.
:36:09.:36:18.

taller than the keeper macro -- but with tremendous upper-body

:36:18.:36:26.

strength. He has a fast start, as the slightly lighter man. He will

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

invariably be leading at 100 metres. He, the Siemionowski, and Ronald

:36:37.:36:42.

Rauhe from Germany, they are the real medal contenders.

:36:42.:36:52.
:36:52.:36:53.

It is the first five, plus the fastest six, will go through. Tim

:36:53.:36:57.

Hornsby has gone into the wrong lane, not the ideal start for the

:36:57.:37:07.
:37:07.:37:30.

first three strokes, that is what he is concentrating on, initially.

:37:30.:37:39.

A roar from the largely British crowd. Ed McKeever leads at the

:37:40.:37:49.
:37:50.:37:51.

moment from no vac macro. Into the second half of the race -- Novak.

:37:51.:38:00.

The Serbian, just moving up, alongside the cleaver macro. --

:38:00.:38:10.
:38:10.:38:17.

More to come from him. Job done again. He gets out so well.

:38:17.:38:22.

jumped out from the start. You could see a little bit towards the

:38:22.:38:30.

end, an attack coming through. He will be pleased. The Serbian won

:38:30.:38:36.

the European Championship ahead of him earlier this year.

:38:36.:38:46.
:38:46.:38:51.

Just over 35 seconds. But pushed hard. You can see the power, the

:38:51.:38:58.

boat swaying and jumping from side to side. They really use their legs

:38:58.:39:04.

hard, driving everything. It is important to get out the connection

:39:04.:39:11.

and that timing and to hold on to that good technique down the course.

:39:11.:39:17.

He has a long reach, just five feet eight inches. He has won a couple

:39:17.:39:27.
:39:27.:39:29.

of World Cup events this year. European champion. Two years ago.

:39:29.:39:36.

He has a fine pedigree. A fine hope for the home fans. Waving to the

:39:36.:39:40.

crowd as he moves through to the semi-finals this morning. Looking

:39:40.:39:50.
:39:50.:39:51.

good. This fairly quiet man from the west Country. Once he gets in

:39:51.:40:01.
:40:01.:40:02.

the boat, a different beast. Just easing him into the semi-finals.

:40:02.:40:10.

Siemionowski, also looking good. Expect it also Ronald Rauhe in the

:40:10.:40:17.

next heat, and Beaumont, to figure for the medals. As we said, he

:40:17.:40:22.

hasn't been off the podium at any level of competition in the last

:40:22.:40:28.

three years. Announced in 2090 it would become an Olympic event. He

:40:28.:40:33.

wasn't so strong over the longer distances. Using his speed in the

:40:33.:40:42.

latter stages. The 200 metres has been a blessing for them. A new

:40:42.:40:51.

Olympic best. He is safely through Very well done indeed, when in that

:40:51.:40:56.

heat. A good start to the day at Eton Dorney for Great Britain. What

:40:56.:41:02.

did you make of it? It was very impressive, just what he wanted.

:41:02.:41:07.

Easing a fraction in the closing stages. He is the dominant force

:41:07.:41:12.

over 200 metres. He looked very good from the start. Straightaway,

:41:12.:41:18.

the start is vitally important, he has dominated. Chatting to him a

:41:18.:41:23.

few days ago, he was saying he wanted to be explosive out of the

:41:23.:41:29.

start, on top of every one. He was talking about taking on opposition,

:41:29.:41:34.

how he views the opposition, you want to destroy the opposition. He

:41:34.:41:40.

has got that in his armoury. He was the world and European champion in

:41:40.:41:48.

2010. He remains the best among the world in the last 12 months. He

:41:48.:41:52.

hasn't got the amount of gold medals he wanted in the last 12

:41:52.:41:56.

months. But it is all about the London Olympics and the next 24

:41:56.:42:02.

hours. What we have seen is an impressive start. The semi-finals

:42:02.:42:10.

budget at 11:15am and he has put himself in end -- an excellent

:42:10.:42:15.

position for a good lane. We are expecting to be on the podium for

:42:15.:42:21.

Great Britain. 11:15am is the time of this semi-final. You can see how

:42:21.:42:28.

much power goes into this. These athletes, at peak condition. Indeed.

:42:28.:42:33.

I was thinking about perhaps taking up his bought myself but when I

:42:33.:42:39.

look at the physique of these men, I am so puny in comparison, and do

:42:39.:42:45.

not think I would get past 50m. The lactic acid would have destroyed me

:42:45.:42:49.

at that point. They are in tremendous shape. It is all about

:42:50.:42:56.

strength. Helen was saying it is about working out in the gym,

:42:56.:43:00.

building up that explosive power. This is what they are good at over

:43:00.:43:07.

these short distances. Extremely strong and powerful. It is the tide

:43:07.:43:10.

of spot where you don't need to do lots of running or endurance

:43:10.:43:15.

training. You need to be extremely strong. I don't think I'll be able

:43:15.:43:22.

to do that. I do not know, I feel a potential 2016 Rio journey coming

:43:32.:43:46.

white boat, for Germany, in a lane five. The man who has won medals at

:43:46.:43:56.

the three Olympic Games. On the K2 with his partner. A force to be

:43:56.:44:03.

recognised. The way they go in this final heat

:44:03.:44:11.

in the 200 metres. Five to go through. Craviotto from Spain

:44:11.:44:15.

making a promising start. Ronald Rauhe leaving himself a little to

:44:15.:44:23.

do. Beaumont in the blue, for France, going strongly. Craviotto

:44:23.:44:33.
:44:33.:44:34.

taking them out. The final 60m. Ronald Rauhe being taken over. All

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

of those four go through. It was close at the end. Just six in this

:44:49.:44:55.

race, everyone going through. The real winner, Craviotto, he took it

:44:55.:45:05.
:45:05.:45:17.

ease off too much. That was very close. When we get to the semi-

:45:17.:45:23.

finals and the finals we will see a lot of that. It is a race that is

:45:23.:45:30.

one by inches and feet. This is an indicator about the form people are

:45:30.:45:40.
:45:40.:45:42.

in. Cram Rio toe has had a lot of success with Perez. Using the

:45:42.:45:47.

length of his arms as he was driving the pedal into the water up.

:45:47.:45:57.
:45:57.:46:00.

He was leaning forward more than some of the other athletes. Saving

:46:00.:46:05.

some think that the semi-finals later on today. I am sure there is

:46:05.:46:15.
:46:15.:46:37.

plenty more in the lock-up. The those times. 35.55 to. About half a

:46:37.:46:47.
:46:47.:46:50.

second slower than Ed McKeever. -- 35.552.

:46:50.:47:00.
:47:00.:47:08.

That's the third of the heats. 11:15am is the time to see Ed

:47:08.:47:13.

McKeever in his semi-final. He has been on fantastic form this morning

:47:13.:47:22.

and we will have the canoe single heats coming up. Later, we will be

:47:22.:47:29.

looking to taekwondo, because Sarah Stevenson and Italian Muhammad will

:47:29.:47:33.

be in action. It yesterday is anything to go by, it will be worth

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

a watch. -- Lutalo Muhammad. A COMMENTATOR: Jade Jones ahead in

:47:47.:47:54.

this Olympic final. Jade Jones of Great Britain has

:47:54.:48:01.

something very special. The gold medal is getting closer and closer.

:48:01.:48:10.

The countdown will begin. You little beauty! A teenage kicking

:48:10.:48:20.

superstar from North Wales is the Olympic champion.

:48:20.:48:24.

It feels crazy, it doesn't feel real. I have dreamt about it for

:48:24.:48:32.

ages. It is amazing. The crowd have been amazing. You have won a use

:48:32.:48:37.

the Olympic gold medal before, how does this compare? That was special

:48:37.:48:43.

at the time, because I was a junior. But this is amazing. To win an

:48:43.:48:48.

Olympic gold is special, but to my family been here, my friends. At

:48:48.:48:55.

home they had pictures up, it has gone crazy. Jade Jones, Olympic

:48:55.:49:01.

champion - congratulations! I can get used to hearing that.

:49:02.:49:05.

deserves that success. It was a gruelling day for her, her first

:49:05.:49:11.

fight was in the morning and a gold medal fight did not happen until

:49:11.:49:16.

10:15pm. So a fantastic effort from Jade Jones, the first taekwondo

:49:16.:49:21.

gold medal for this country. Idowu will be high hopes for Britain's

:49:21.:49:27.

two fighters today. It represents the moment of truth for Lutalo

:49:27.:49:30.

Muhammad and de taekwondo selectors who took the controversial decision

:49:30.:49:37.

to select him and not Aaron Cook. don't think being selected over

:49:37.:49:42.

anyone made much of a difference. But been selected for the home

:49:42.:49:49.

Olympic Games, I am a Londoner, it is fantastic. I was elated, over

:49:49.:49:54.

the moon when it was announced. I still am, I am excited going into

:49:54.:50:00.

this. My preparation is going well and I feel I am ready to deliver

:50:00.:50:05.

results. When we have met at tournaments or abroad, it has

:50:05.:50:10.

always been very civil and friendly. Very courteous. We are both

:50:11.:50:15.

athletes in the same weight category and we both do really well.

:50:15.:50:20.

Obviously there is a respect for each other, but I have no problems

:50:20.:50:25.

with him and I would like to think he has no problems with me. My

:50:25.:50:29.

focus is winning the gold medal. I'm almost thinking beyond that, I

:50:29.:50:35.

want to focus on the job at hand. It would mean the world to me and

:50:35.:50:39.

it is what I have been dreaming about since I was a little buoy.

:50:39.:50:45.

will be in action at 10:45am. We will have one of the most poignant

:50:45.:50:50.

moments of London 2012 as Sarah Stevenson enters the ExCel to get

:50:50.:50:55.

her taekwondo title hopes under way. She won a bronze in Beijing but has

:50:55.:50:59.

struggled with fitness after suffering a cruciate knee injury in

:50:59.:51:04.

February. It will be an emotional day for the world champion who

:51:04.:51:10.

hopes to dedicate that any medal to her parents who both died last year.

:51:10.:51:14.

In the name of all the competitors, I promise we shall take part in the

:51:15.:51:18.

Olympic Games, respecting and abiding by the rules which govern

:51:18.:51:24.

them. I cannot explain it, it was amazing.

:51:24.:51:30.

It was very scary. Everyone asked me, you did not looked nervous at

:51:30.:51:38.

all. My hands were shaking, my legs were shaking. You do still think of

:51:38.:51:43.

yourself as a person who has had nothing and then all of a sudden

:51:43.:51:52.

you are an inspiration. People say to me, because of Beijing do you

:51:52.:51:58.

owe it to yourself to win, put everything right? No, it is a

:51:58.:52:02.

competition like every other competition I have been two. But it

:52:02.:52:07.

is my dream to win and I it will do my best and go for it. I cannot put

:52:07.:52:12.

everything right, it is not my God given right to do that. It you

:52:12.:52:17.

think an amazing mum and dad, they were amazing. They gave me

:52:17.:52:22.

everything I needed, helped me to get everywhere I am. They kept me

:52:22.:52:29.

grounded. Definitely kept me grounded! There was no getting

:52:29.:52:36.

above my station, ever. 2011 the was horrendous. I use that now to

:52:36.:52:41.

put things in perspective. If I am moaning about that, I say to myself,

:52:42.:52:45.

this time last year, you had just lost your dad and you had been told

:52:45.:52:53.

your mum was not going to be around. One specific day I had last year, I

:52:53.:52:59.

went through with my husband. I stopped and I said to him, the

:52:59.:53:06.

Olympics is nothing, taekwondo is nothing. I would quit, I wanted

:53:06.:53:15.

someone to keep me the option to quit. I would swap it to keep my

:53:15.:53:20.

mum and dad. This is a competition, just a competition. Hopefully this

:53:20.:53:25.

will help me to do my best. I want to do my best on the day and had no

:53:25.:53:31.

regrets and go for it. And I don't think I can lose, no matter what.

:53:31.:53:35.

The incredible journey of Sarah Stevenson. She was the first person

:53:35.:53:40.

who ever won a taekwondo Olympic medal for Great Britain, and has a

:53:40.:53:43.

special place of being a trailblazer for her sport in this

:53:43.:53:50.

country. We will be watching her as it begins at the ExCel at 10:30am.

:53:50.:53:54.

Hopes for a gold medal for Sarah Stevenson, and later we will be

:53:54.:53:57.

joined by two British women who won individual medals in dressage

:53:57.:54:03.

yesterday. Charlotte Dujardin and also Laura Bechtolsheimer who won

:54:03.:54:08.

the bronze medal. We will be welcoming them in a moment. Now

:54:08.:54:11.

back to Eton Dory as Richard Jeffries goes in the men's canoe

:54:11.:54:17.

single. Richard, I am getting my head around these different races.

:54:17.:54:22.

Now it is the canoeists? Yes, the kayak his word the

:54:22.:54:29.

canoeists sit in the Kayak and a pedal with a double bladed Kayak.

:54:29.:54:34.

Canoeists have the single bladed pedal. Richard Jeffries, he was

:54:34.:54:37.

disappointed in his race earlier in the week. But it is not his main

:54:37.:54:43.

event, he said he was using it to gain some experience of the course.

:54:43.:54:48.

Normally he competes in front of a couple of birds, but they have

:54:49.:54:53.

thousands of people shouting at him. There is a huge contingent from the

:54:53.:54:58.

Isle of Wight where Richard Jeffries is from. This is more his

:54:58.:55:03.

event in the 1,000m, after he raced in the week, I asked him what it

:55:03.:55:09.

was like. He said I only know one speed, and that is to go fast. Not

:55:09.:55:15.

so good over the 1,000m. Richard Jeffries came through the same

:55:15.:55:19.

talent spotting scheme as Helen Glover. Richard was heading towards

:55:19.:55:25.

rowing, but did not cut its, so he was directed to canoeing. He has

:55:25.:55:31.

proved to be quite adept at it. As Helen Reeves was saying, this will

:55:31.:55:36.

be a stepping-stone to Rio. But we are hoping for a good showing from

:55:36.:55:41.

Richard today. It is fantastic to see thousands of people out there

:55:41.:55:46.

to support the canoe sprint events. This is the last couple of days of

:55:46.:55:55.

this competition, so it later on, the semi-finals. How common is it

:55:55.:55:59.

people move from one distance in people move from one distance in

:55:59.:56:02.

these races to another? A number of the Great Britain athletes have

:56:02.:56:09.

moved from 1,000m down to 200m. We saw Richard Jeffrey its in the

:56:10.:56:15.

1,000m and is now in the 200. They do have their specialities. Most of

:56:15.:56:21.

our specialists are over 200 and best medal chances are over 200m.

:56:21.:56:25.

But we have athletes from other countries who have the option of

:56:25.:56:29.

switching. It is something that happens often. We are hoping

:56:29.:56:34.

Richard Jeffries approves of the 200m is his No 1 effort. He and the

:56:34.:56:39.

others are out there on the water, getting ready and over to a

:56:39.:56:43.

commentators. The noise there was for Richard

:56:43.:56:48.

Jeffries. He may struggle, not in this heat, everybody goes through,

:56:48.:56:54.

it is just about getting the numbers right for the semi-final.

:56:54.:56:59.

Richard Jeffries looked more as I hoped for Rio been for years.

:56:59.:57:06.

Sebastien Brendel who has won the 1,000m, the European champion in

:57:06.:57:12.

this distance for the last three years as well. The Mexican, we are

:57:12.:57:18.

still reeling from the last heat where we saw Mallon team them in a

:57:18.:57:23.

coat from Azerbaijan, the current world champion finished 7th. In

:57:23.:57:27.

that heat we are assured it is the first six to go through. Unless he

:57:27.:57:34.

knows something, he is ill or injured, because he struggled badly.

:57:34.:57:39.

So as we understand it, he is out already. But everybody in this heat

:57:39.:57:49.
:57:49.:58:06.

will go through. It is a chance to at the moment, he is been told to

:58:06.:58:13.

go forward. He is just struggling, wasn't quite in the right line. He

:58:13.:58:17.

tried to line himself back up. think he went into the wrong lane

:58:17.:58:23.

as well as the American did before. He has got to reverse and do a

:58:23.:58:28.

three-point turn and come back again. Maybe he is a little bit out

:58:28.:58:35.

classed here. But everybody going through. You like to Bangor your

:58:35.:58:45.

boat depending on which side you pedal on. The -- angle your boat.

:58:45.:58:48.

You don't want to lose too much pace in trying to steer at the

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

start. Here we are in the second heat. About 40 seconds they will

:58:58.:59:08.
:59:08.:59:09.

cover this 200m. Richard Jeffries going out hard. At the moment it is

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

these three. Richard Jeffries is in third place at the moment. It

:59:20.:59:30.
:59:30.:59:30.

perhaps just about conserving a bit of energy. The German has a long

:59:30.:59:37.

strokes. He is picking the pace up as he charged towards the line.

:59:37.:59:46.

Just dips the stern. Richard Jeffries in third. He will be

:59:46.:59:51.

pleased with that. He got out well and got himself in touch with the

:59:51.:59:58.

top runners and held on. The winner is a class act in this discipline.

:59:58.:00:02.

He will be going through to the semi-final and the final which

:00:02.:00:07.

plate -- takes place tomorrow. Things will get more interesting in

:00:40.:00:47.

steady yourself in the start pocket. I am not quite sure he was event in

:00:47.:00:55.

it when it went down. These canoes are incredibly difficult to get a

:00:55.:01:00.

stable platform. The top guys make it look easy as they get that

:01:00.:01:07.

balance between their front leg which is flat on the bottom of the

:01:07.:01:17.
:01:17.:01:18.

boat and the back leg kneels. Tremendous power and the lunch. We

:01:18.:01:22.

have had it confirmed that the current European and world champion

:01:22.:01:29.

from Azerbaijan is out. A big shock in the heats. Apart from that it is

:01:29.:01:33.

business as usual. Everybody you would expect to go through and some

:02:26.:02:30.

the heats in the canoe competition. There is plenty going on at Eton

:02:31.:02:37.

Dorney this morning, so we will be back there. At 11:15am there is the

:02:37.:02:42.

semi-final involving Ed McKeever. Let show you more of a friend of

:02:42.:02:48.

our morning show, Charlotte Bouchard than he won the individual

:02:48.:02:53.

dressage competition. She was the last rider to go out in Greenwich

:02:53.:02:58.

yesterday and needed to score over 88.196 to claim the individual

:02:58.:03:08.
:03:08.:03:25.

title in front of an expectant the end. 18 months ago this girl

:03:25.:03:31.

had not ridden at serious international level. Here she is on

:03:31.:03:41.
:03:41.:04:06.

the edge of a potential individual pirouette, but she came out in time.

:04:06.:04:16.
:04:16.:04:18.

She goes in for the double pirouette and gets it. It will all

:04:28.:05:22.

rest on this line. She did the she needs to go for a bit more.

:05:22.:05:31.

What a performance, what a temperament. She has really not

:05:31.:05:39.

come from a background which would put her in this situation, but

:05:39.:05:49.

sheer talent has been spotted. Here she has put a performance in which

:05:49.:05:59.
:05:59.:06:00.

Not just touching distance, it was a gold and that was her reaction

:06:00.:06:08.

when she realised she had not only won the gold, but broke the Olympic

:06:08.:06:15.

record with her horse Valegro. A very stirring routine with Land of

:06:15.:06:21.

Hope and Glory and the Big Ben chimes. I am delighted to welcome

:06:21.:06:26.

her back this morning. And your team-mate Laura Bechtolsheimer.

:06:27.:06:31.

Congratulations, you won the bronze. How did it feel to be both on the

:06:31.:06:38.

podium to get there? It was amazing. To do it the first time round was

:06:38.:06:44.

very special. Obviously to do it again individually and to have the

:06:44.:06:49.

gold and Laura to have the bronze was very special, very emotional.

:06:49.:06:53.

It must have been. Do you help each other? Have you watched her routine

:06:53.:07:01.

a million times. I got to watch her test because I had already finished,

:07:01.:07:05.

so I was pretty emotional and had my fingers crossed so hard for her.

:07:05.:07:11.

I had not seen the Dutch girl, but I hurt it was a good routine. I was

:07:11.:07:19.

riding all of her changes with her and all of her pirouettes with her.

:07:19.:07:25.

If anyone was going to win gold I wanted it to be a Brit. Charlotte

:07:25.:07:29.

trains with Carl Hester and it was very emotional for all of us.

:07:30.:07:34.

whole nation was thinking, how on earth do you get the horse to do

:07:34.:07:39.

this? Talk us through it. Anyone out there who is thinking maybe

:07:39.:07:44.

I'll have a go at a bit of freestyle Desai's. How do you do

:07:44.:07:50.

it? It takes a long time. We have been riding these horses were a

:07:50.:07:57.

very long time. I have had my horse for eight years. He was very good,

:07:57.:08:01.

but you start at very low level learning how to control a horse and

:08:01.:08:06.

do the basic movements. It takes years of training to get a horse

:08:06.:08:12.

together to perform all of the Grand Prix movements. On the other

:08:12.:08:16.

side of it they have to have the strength and the balance and the

:08:16.:08:22.

co-ordination to physically perform those movements. They have to be

:08:22.:08:31.

about nine or 10 years old. Why did you choose that music? The Lion

:08:31.:08:36.

King takes me back to my childhood. And Kenya is my favourite country

:08:36.:08:40.

and I have been there a few times on holiday and it makes me feel

:08:40.:08:47.

happy and comfortable and I think it does the same for the horse.

:08:47.:08:54.

have worked a lot with Valegro and he is incredible and we have heard

:08:55.:09:01.

him named the Lionel Messi of dress size. You start training with the

:09:01.:09:05.

basic movements and then you decide the music, do you put the medley

:09:05.:09:15.
:09:15.:09:17.

together? Yes, we get the chance to choose our own music. I was

:09:18.:09:22.

competing at another championship and there was a British thing over

:09:22.:09:27.

there and I had the great escape before some of my music over there,

:09:27.:09:33.

which gave me the idea to have the British theme here. I thought it

:09:33.:09:39.

would be great to have that music with the home crowd. You can have

:09:39.:09:46.

music which people know as well. Obviously, it has to fit the horse.

:09:46.:09:51.

The horse has to settle in with the music and it does not have too many

:09:51.:09:57.

bass notes. So some horses do not like that? Yes, they can react a

:09:57.:10:03.

little bit to the music. It depends on your horse. It depends what kind

:10:03.:10:08.

of music you can take. When you say they can react, that means they get

:10:09.:10:15.

thrown off kilter? Yes, they get tension and it upsets their

:10:15.:10:20.

performance. We need to keep them relaxed and calm to be able to do

:10:20.:10:25.

what we need to do. You decide on the music and then what happens? Do

:10:25.:10:32.

you try it out and see if the horse takes to it? You try and write the

:10:32.:10:36.

colour -- choreography that suits your horse. You have to perform all

:10:36.:10:40.

of the Grand Prix movements, but you can choose what order you show

:10:40.:10:44.

them in and you can add more funky stuff to make it more difficult

:10:44.:10:48.

because you get marked out of difficulty as well. Once you have

:10:48.:10:54.

got your routine sorted, you get someone to put their music together.

:10:54.:11:02.

Is it about you particularly training and the team effort? Can

:11:02.:11:07.

somebody else take the horse out and put him through his paces?

:11:07.:11:12.

Most riders at the top would be able to get on your horse and do

:11:12.:11:18.

the same. It will not work as well probably. Only the fact we have

:11:18.:11:23.

been riding our horses for about eight years and they know us inside

:11:23.:11:28.

out. Everybody rides differently and everybody has different buttons

:11:28.:11:35.

and the horses have to adapt to each rider. Laura, you said

:11:35.:11:39.

yesterday that your horse is coming to the end of its dressage live. It

:11:39.:11:45.

is one of the older horses. Could it be back for Rio de Janeiro?

:11:45.:11:51.

he might have another championship next year in him. I do not know. I

:11:51.:11:57.

will see how he feels, he is 17 so another Olympics is out of the

:11:57.:12:02.

question. You are looking for another horse? I have got some

:12:02.:12:10.

young horses I am producing at home, so hopefully for Rio de Janeiro I

:12:10.:12:15.

will have one too fell 1/2's big shoes. What happens next for you?

:12:15.:12:20.

am at the same. I have other horses and I am very lucky to be able to

:12:20.:12:27.

have another string of horses and hoped to go onwards and upwards and

:12:27.:12:32.

hopefully again to be in the team with Laura and Carl Hester. I want

:12:32.:12:36.

to ask you about the relationship. There is a bit of healthy

:12:36.:12:41.

competition. He did not end up on the podium yesterday. Are you still

:12:41.:12:47.

talking? Absolutely, he is great, he is so supportive. He has helped

:12:47.:12:57.
:12:57.:13:00.

me so much. I owe a lot to him. I have a great relationship with him

:13:00.:13:06.

and I want to stay with him. He has been my inspiration from the start.

:13:06.:13:10.

What better way to learn than to be with somebody like him. I have

:13:10.:13:17.

still got so much more to learn. He is the person I want to learn with.

:13:17.:13:20.

I think you can start at the teaching ends now, rather than at

:13:20.:13:25.

the learning end up a your performance yesterday. One of the

:13:25.:13:28.

things people have been asking Clare Balding a lot, and she knows

:13:28.:13:37.

everything there is to know, is why do you wear a top hat? You do not

:13:37.:13:44.

wear a top hat when you go out. is going to be a rule for wearing a

:13:44.:13:53.

crash hat. I fell off and fractured my skull not through wearing a hat.

:13:53.:14:01.

I was so lucky to escape from that. Now it is something I always do. I

:14:01.:14:06.

feel unsafe without my hat on. People say you do not always need

:14:06.:14:12.

it, but for me especially in these atmospheres, you never know what

:14:12.:14:18.

can happen and I always stick with my crash hat. In is it time for you

:14:18.:14:26.

to trade the pop across to mark I probably should set an example.

:14:26.:14:31.

do not know, I fear it looks wrong wearing a crash helmet especially

:14:31.:14:36.

with my tail coat. It is vanity really. Obviously I wear a crash

:14:36.:14:42.

helmet when I am at home training and things like that. But I guess

:14:42.:14:47.

it is a personal choice. I have to say I am quite relieved to see you

:14:47.:14:52.

both here. You did tell Gary that you were off to a big party on the

:14:52.:14:56.

river last night. It is great that you are still bright and early this

:14:56.:15:06.
:15:06.:15:09.

morning. Thank you very much and it So, it has all been very exciting

:15:09.:15:13.

in those equestrian events, but it is now time to talk taekwondo. We

:15:13.:15:18.

will be off to the ExCel shortly, because there are two British

:15:18.:15:24.

fighters in the Arena today. Before we take you to today's action, he

:15:24.:15:34.
:15:34.:15:37.

The taekwondo competition area is eight metres square with a safety

:15:37.:15:40.

boundary around the outside. Fights are contested over three two-minute

:15:40.:15:43.

rounds with a minute's rest in between. If the score is tied after

:15:43.:15:46.

three rounds, the fight goes into a sudden death 4th round. The scores

:15:46.:15:50.

are reset to nil and the first point to score wins the contest.

:15:50.:15:53.

The aim of taekwondo is to land kicks and punches to your

:15:53.:15:56.

opponent's scoring zones. Moves are worth between one and four points

:15:56.:16:01.

depending on the mode of attack. The referee oversees the action

:16:01.:16:04.

which is scored by three judges. At least two judges have to call a

:16:04.:16:10.

point in order for it to be valid. Competitors wear protective

:16:10.:16:14.

equipment including a head guard and a chest protector. The chest

:16:14.:16:16.

protector validates points when a powerful, accurate kick is

:16:16.:16:23.

All athletes wear sensored socks which protect your feet and

:16:23.:16:27.

register points. Points can also be recorded through penalties - half-

:16:27.:16:30.

point penalties called Kyong-gos and full-point penalties known as

:16:30.:16:38.

:16:50.:16:55.

to see Sarah Stevenson and also Lutalo Muhammad. Before we show you

:16:55.:16:59.

those, time to show you one of the really fantastic stand out

:16:59.:17:04.

Olympians in this sport, and it is Steven Lopez of the United States.

:17:04.:17:08.

He has been in action today against a Ramin Azizov of Azerbaijan, and

:17:08.:17:13.

if he wins, he will be the most decorated Olympian in taekwondo of

:17:13.:17:23.
:17:23.:17:28.

Steven Lopez, the two-time Olympic champion. He is a figurehead in the

:17:28.:17:38.

sport. He is facing the top seed from Azerbaijan. One more muddle

:17:38.:17:45.

for Lopez of any colour and he will become the most decorated

:17:46.:17:49.

competitor in taekwondo that the world has ever known. He had to

The first time he has been able to You won't always see the fireworks

and the explosive stuff straight away. Straight away they have got

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

into close range stuff. We talk before about having a metre of Matt

:18:31.:18:38.

between you. These men here have about half of that distance here.

:18:38.:18:48.
:18:48.:18:49.

There are looking for options. They Lopez is just feeling his way into

:18:49.:18:57.

this match here. It is very unusual for Steven Lopez to have a taller

:18:57.:19:02.

opponent. He is noted as a head kicker when he gets into the right

:19:02.:19:12.
:19:12.:19:30.

The penalty going against the name of the American. As early as it is

:19:30.:19:36.

in the match, those details can prove crucial, because Steven Lopez

:19:36.:19:46.
:19:46.:20:05.

is a master who used to win games The ability to win a plea is just

:20:05.:20:13.

as important as the fantastic kicks we have seen. Ahead right on the

round. His sister Diane just missed a featherweight medal yesterday.

His brother is the coach doing the talking now. This is Azizov talking

:20:37.:20:44.

about that. He had a painful defeat in Manchester in May. It was 11-all

Lopez realised the energy was wrong, conserved the energy, didn't throw

:22:36.:22:46.
:22:46.:22:56.

As expected, it is not going to be a high-scoring encounter just yet.

:22:56.:23:06.

But Lopez is beginning to find the Azizov has a big, long, jabbing

:23:46.:23:51.

The contest between two men who haven't embraced the final yet. It

:23:51.:23:59.

is a shame that one of them has to go out so soon. I F -- I expect it

:23:59.:24:04.

is a fair assumption that whoever wins this may well go on to the

:24:04.:24:14.
:24:14.:24:15.

final and bring the other back into You never know just how much this

:24:15.:24:21.

can take out of the tank. There are a lot of other fighters there, let

And that closed the stance with the same league leg in front, it offers

:24:58.:25:08.
:25:08.:25:13.

Lopez is going to have to up the ante. Now we are going to see the

:25:13.:25:18.

fighting style of Steven Lopez. He has a minute and a half to do

:25:18.:25:28.
:25:28.:25:42.

something. But if you rush in, you All the years of dominance,

sun is beginning to set on the glittering career of Steven Lopez.

:27:43.:27:47.

That was a victory for Azerbaijan, and a disappointment for Steven

:27:48.:27:53.

Lopez. He could still get a medal if he goes through the repechage

:27:53.:27:57.

round, we are not certain how this could work, but he does end up with

:27:57.:28:02.

a bronze, he will become the most decorated Olympian in taekwondo

:28:02.:28:07.

ever. But it is a big day for Great Britain in taekwondo, because we

:28:07.:28:17.
:28:17.:28:19.

will see both Lutalo Muhammad and Sarah Stevenson. Many Shashin is

:28:19.:28:29.
:28:29.:28:31.

watching it over at the ExCel arena. Many of the athletes involved in

:28:31.:28:35.

London 2012, there are stories of inspiration and courage, and for

:28:35.:28:38.

Sarah Stevenson, it is certainly no different, because after what she

:28:38.:28:42.

has gone through, everybody will be cheering her on for the next four

:28:42.:28:47.

fights potentially to see her claim gold. She will never want to go

:28:47.:28:51.

through the year 2011 again, when she lost both her parents to cancer

:28:51.:28:57.

within the space of three months. You could have forgiven her for

:28:57.:29:01.

leaving the sport altogether, if not at least taking a break. But

:29:01.:29:05.

she has been spurred on by her mum's quotes to her, one of her

:29:05.:29:10.

final words was to go to London 2012 and try to win gold for me.

:29:10.:29:17.

She says she is holding on to not grieving both her parentss' losses

:29:17.:29:27.

quite yet until after 2012. Away from that, as if she has not had

:29:27.:29:32.

enough to deal with, fitness concerns also for Sarah Stevenson,

:29:32.:29:36.

because she suffered cruciate ligament injury back in February,

:29:36.:29:41.

which meant she couldn't retain her European title in May, so she maybe

:29:41.:29:44.

lacks a certain amount of match fitness, considering her last

:29:44.:29:49.

competitive match was over 12 months ago in May 2011. Those are

:29:49.:29:55.

her main concerns, but she puts it all in stark perspective. She has

:29:55.:29:59.

got experience, and bags of it. This is her 4th Olympic Games. She

:29:59.:30:07.

picked up bronze in Beijing in 2008, and victory at London 2012 will be

:30:07.:30:10.

cheered on. And that bronze was such a

:30:10.:30:13.

milestone for taekwondo in this country, because it was the first

:30:13.:30:17.

ever Olympic medal in the sport that Great Britain had one. It will

:30:17.:30:21.

be quite a gruelling day for her if she does progress all the way

:30:21.:30:31.
:30:31.:30:34.

through. The beginning end it is Yes, they came back with a record

:30:34.:30:39.

paid tribute to Sarah in her interview. We are going through a

:30:52.:30:59.

rich spell in taekwondo as far as GB medal hopefuls are concerned. I

:30:59.:31:03.

think Sarah will be coming out shortly. She takes on a Paige

:31:03.:31:08.

McPherson of the United States. Nobody will be more worthy of gold

:31:08.:31:12.

than her. It is her 4th Olympic Games and she will be so desperate

:31:12.:31:20.

to do theirs. We are looking down at the arena where will be seeing

:31:20.:31:23.

the Sarah Stevenson who will come out in a moment for that fight

:31:23.:31:28.

against Paige McPherson. It is looking absolutely packed. Yes, it

:31:28.:31:37.

is. Massive support for taekwondo here. That is the cheering for

:31:38.:31:42.

Sarah Stevenson. It goes against all the publicity that the sport

:31:42.:31:49.

received in London in the run-up to London 2012 with Aaron Cook being

:31:49.:31:55.

excluded and Lutalo Muhammad coming end. But they reckon he is a real

:31:55.:32:05.
:32:05.:32:05.

medal hopeful. I am looking over my shoulder and this could be Sarah

Britain's big hope in this category of taekwondo.

This is the first lady of British taekwondo, despite Jade Jones'

Olympic medal. This is her American opponent, Paige McPherson, a 21

:32:48.:32:56.

year-old marking her first Olympic Games. A quarter-finalist in last

year's Korean championships. It is barely 10 hours since those who

:33:03.:33:07.

were here last night to watch Jade Jones filed out into the London

:33:07.:33:16.

night full of their memories. Is this 29 year-old from Doncaster or

:33:16.:33:26.
:33:26.:33:31.

going to give this lot memories to take away with them today? The

:33:31.:33:35.

American has gone through her routine this morning, braiding her

hair and reading passages from the Bible. Sarah suffered a cruciate

knee injury in February and there was a brief time when we wonder at

opponent, it is a closed stance. But the open stance drawers in the

just as important to drop the hands. Establishing a lead is important,

but maintaining it is equally soap. Sarah Stevenson weighing up how

close she can be without conceding Before her mother dive, she told

her daughter to go to London and win it for them. She has got a

tattoo that says, because of you. Paige McPherson is a tough, little

21 year-old. If she has got nerves, she is covering them up well.

:39:37.:39:42.

has indeed. She has got the tactics right, but also mentally in terms

:39:43.:39:50.

of dealing with this arena with the partisan crowd. Macpherson has

:39:50.:39:58.

operated well in the distance. It is all about distance. Her legs,

:39:58.:40:08.
:40:08.:40:22.

That is her coach and her husband. She has got two minutes left to

:40:23.:40:29.

save her Olympic bacon. Sarah Stevenson from Great Britain in the

:40:29.:40:36.

red. From the States in the blue, Paige McPherson. Positive signs in

:40:37.:40:46.

this opening exchange. Sarah Stevenson beginning to find her

:40:46.:40:53.

range. She needs to get on with it, because time continues to take a

:40:53.:40:58.

weight in this third and final round. Still she is four points

:40:58.:41:04.

adrift. That was a back kick attempt, but a tribute to Paige

:41:04.:41:09.

McPherson, her tactics and her timing has been spot on. She has

:41:09.:41:17.

not been injured and she looks like that sitter of the two. Sarah

:41:17.:41:22.

Stevenson was convinced that mist. She is going to pick up a penalty

:41:22.:41:28.

because she put the appeal in herself. It needed to come from the

:41:28.:41:33.

coach, Stephen Jennings, her husband, but she is prepared to

:41:33.:41:39.

take the penalty to have a look at this video replay. If you watched

:41:39.:41:46.

this yesterday, you will know how this works. The referee goes across

:41:46.:41:51.

to the head of the team and he will go across to his two friends and

:41:51.:41:56.

explain what they are looking for it. We are looking to see whether

:41:56.:42:06.
:42:06.:42:09.

Sarah Stevenson was hit on the head. I think that mist. The technical

:42:09.:42:17.

delegate have fired cameras to look at. The appeal is successful, a

:42:17.:42:26.

very good appeal. He has kept his wife Sarah Stevenson in the hunt at

:42:26.:42:36.
:42:36.:42:38.

these Olympics. It is time for Sarah Stevenson to go to work will

:42:38.:42:43.

stop she will need to find a head shot of her own. Paige McPherson is

:42:43.:42:53.
:42:53.:42:55.

using the ring and moving around and covering well. She wants to and

:42:55.:43:03.

she is right. An extended short kick from Paige McPherson. Explain

:43:03.:43:08.

why they kick she put in two first and did not show up on the

:43:08.:43:13.

scoreboard. If there is not enough power and sustained impact, it will

:43:13.:43:23.
:43:23.:43:27.

not register. It is not the domain of objective -- subjective scoring.

:43:27.:43:31.

It is one of the vagaries of the sport that you can hit somebody in

:43:31.:43:40.

the stomach and not get a point for it. It she has been brushed by an

:43:40.:43:46.

American toe, she will concede three points. That is on the

:43:46.:43:54.

shoulder. She has avoided it again. What did we do before it video

:43:54.:44:01.

replays? We had controversy. It is because of Sarah Stevenson that we

:44:01.:44:07.

have replaced. We all remember what happened four years ago. The

:44:07.:44:17.
:44:17.:44:28.

And for someone of Sarah's skills, The American is closing the ring

:44:28.:44:38.

Sometimes the Hollywood ending doesn't happen. And after all Sarah

Macpherson who fought brilliantly Macpherson who fought brilliantly

:45:00.:45:04.

takes her place in the quarter- finals. And we may yet see Sarah

:45:04.:45:08.

Stevenson fight for a bronze medal right at the end of the day, but

:45:08.:45:12.

that would rely on Macpherson going all the way to the final, and she

:45:12.:45:19.

is going to have to keep it up now. Jennings, the husband, and share --

:45:19.:45:27.

Sarah Stevenson just sharing a hug there. Let's not get too heavy

:45:27.:45:30.

about this, but it is one of the things that Sarah was talking about

:45:30.:45:35.

ahead of these games. It is taekwondo, and after all she's gone

:45:35.:45:38.

through, it is not the most important thing in the world, and

:45:38.:45:43.

maybe that is running through her mind. Yes, you have to maintain a

:45:43.:45:51.

bigger picture perspective here. The entire programme of taekwondo

:45:51.:45:55.

was built on the back of her success, and youngsters like Jade

:45:55.:46:00.

Jones have built on that. But when you have done you cruciate ligament

:46:00.:46:04.

in February, this is a massive ask, and even somebody with her

:46:04.:46:10.

recovering powers, it was just too much. Did she fight to her best, or

:46:10.:46:14.

did the injury play its part, or was it just the American was just

:46:14.:46:20.

too good? A definite combination of all of that. She couldn't have

:46:20.:46:24.

given any more. Page Macpherson couldn't have fought any better.

:46:24.:46:33.

That is why we have the result. was a glory night for British

:46:33.:46:39.

taekwondo yesterday, and stare sit -- Sarah Stevenson might yet end up

:46:39.:46:49.

Sarah is with us now. Very unlucky, not the opening fight you are

:46:49.:46:58.

hoping for. There must admit, I did do near enough my best, and that is

:46:58.:47:03.

all I can do. It has been hard, hard build up, so my aim was to

:47:03.:47:13.

come here and go for it, and I felt like I did. That's it. Nobody would

:47:13.:47:18.

have blamed you, you have done your best year for all that went on in

:47:18.:47:27.

2011. Did they cruciate ligament injury spark? Not today. It has

:47:27.:47:31.

been a mental fight every single day for the last 18 months, every

:47:31.:47:39.

single day. And I did my best, and I just came here, my dad would want

:47:39.:47:45.

me to be here, so I am here, and I know they would be proud. You do

:47:45.:47:48.

realise you are a source of inspiration that everybody watching.

:47:48.:47:53.

Taekwondo is not at the top of your priorities right now. To be here at

:47:53.:47:57.

London 2012 is in itself a massive achievement, almost beyond words.

:47:57.:48:03.

Yes. I would have been forgiven to quit and sit in a corner and cry,

:48:03.:48:09.

but I am not a quitter, and I would never have quit. I have no regrets,

:48:09.:48:13.

and I want to wake up tomorrow and have no regrets, and I think I

:48:13.:48:17.

might be able to do that. Obviously I am a bit disappointed, but that

:48:17.:48:24.

was my aim. There is a ray of hope, and there is the avenue of the

:48:24.:48:28.

repechage for you. Yes, and I will keep going and hope she gets

Mohammed, and this is his opponent Low Otello Mohammed is an Olympian,

:49:43.:49:51.

and he is fighting against Farkhod Negmatov from Tajikistan. He has

:49:51.:49:54.

got that flexibility with the front leg, and the speed over the

:49:54.:50:01.

shoulder. Negmatov is going to have to cover higher. That athleticism

:50:01.:50:09.

that Muhammad brings, as we mentioned before, he is at full

:50:09.:50:15.

strength. He has just come down a weight, and Negmatov is coming up

:50:15.:50:25.
:50:25.:50:26.

He is the attempted shot from Muhammad. They are both tall

:50:26.:50:36.
:50:36.:51:04.

The winner of this will be into the quarter-finals. There is the double

:51:04.:51:12.

kick, two kicks consecutively in mid-air from Negmatov. He drops

:51:12.:51:22.
:51:22.:51:35.

And the dynamic quickness of Lutalo And the dynamic quickness of Lutalo

:51:35.:51:39.

Muhammad, so important. It has been a nervy, cagey opening two minutes.

:51:39.:51:44.

A young man who has had to put up with a lot. He got criticism which

:51:45.:51:49.

didn't seem entirely fair, the selection decision wasn't his, but

:51:49.:51:53.

he has had to put up with more than anyone looking forward to

:51:53.:51:59.

representing his country. Aaron Cook was here yesterday to watch

:51:59.:52:05.

Jade Jones when her gold medal. He is not here today. I think he has

:52:05.:52:14.

got tickets from the basketball. He couldn't bear to be here today, but

:52:14.:52:24.
:52:24.:52:26.

this is Lutalo Muhammad's day. Negmatov's name was apparently last

Tajikistan athletes. He is Muhammad's first-round opponent in

:52:36.:52:41.

this Olympic taekwondo competition. This is the men's welterweight, 80

:52:41.:52:50.

kg, around 12 and a half stone. 21- year-old Lutalo Muhammad hails from

:52:50.:53:00.
:53:00.:53:06.

He has found the range of his leg. But for the cover skills of

:53:06.:53:16.
:53:16.:53:26.

But as much as he is good in attack, Muhammad has to be resolute in

:53:26.:53:36.
:53:36.:54:00.

Negmatov knows that he cannot rush It is Negmatov trying to stepping,

:54:00.:54:10.
:54:10.:54:14.

the reverse turning kick there. A The referee let it go without a

:54:14.:54:24.
:54:24.:54:31.

Kyon-go, taekwondo's penalty. The sport is spoken in the language of

:54:32.:54:41.
:54:42.:54:53.

That left leg came chopping down on the head of the two cheeky Stan

:54:53.:55:03.
:55:03.:55:12.

He has been very good on defence. He has kept in that open stance,

:55:12.:55:20.

giving Negmatov less chance to score. The coach will have to give

:55:20.:55:25.

some good advice to his athlete here, because continually trying to

:55:25.:55:28.

do the same thing again and again and expecting a different result

:55:28.:55:35.

doesn't always played dividends. It hasn't been an easy introduction to

:55:35.:55:45.
:55:45.:55:48.

this arena for Muhammad. There was the attempted reverse. And there's

:55:48.:55:54.

the chop. Just avoided by the the chop. Just avoided by the

:55:54.:55:57.

merest of margins. I think that might have been worth a video

:55:57.:56:02.

replay card. I think the toes just caught the the side of the blue hat.

:56:02.:56:12.
:56:12.:56:25.

I wonder where Utoeya Mohammad -- Lutalo Muhammad's dad Joseph is. He

:56:26.:56:30.

brought his son into the sport when he was just three. He was around

:56:30.:56:40.
:56:40.:56:50.

It is tough watching at the moment, because Negmatov has his tactics

:56:50.:56:55.

perfectly. This could come down to a Kyon-go match, come down to

:56:55.:57:05.
:57:05.:57:05.

As yet, the scoreboard is yet to be brought into operation, and it is

:57:06.:57:10.

the final round. Negmatov is far from one of the favourites here,

:57:10.:57:16.

but he is having a favourable round. Lutalo Muhammad, that was the Kyon-

go, both of them have got it. word from the referee to get on

:57:21.:57:29.

with it. They came here to fight, and are trying to do that now.

:57:29.:57:34.

There is the chop from a Muhammad, and he is ahead! That was the three.

:57:34.:57:38.

Head shot, it has taken the best part of five minutes, but finally

:57:38.:57:43.

the big moment belongs to Britain. But he needs to keep his wits about

:57:43.:57:49.

him. What a perfect time to score it. He has a three-point advantage

:57:49.:57:59.
:57:59.:58:00.

over Negmatov, who will have to And the British League is now up to

:58:00.:58:10.

A flurry of limbs, and we watch the clock ticked down, but the flurry

:58:10.:58:14.

once again works in the Britain's favour. He is now six points clear

:58:14.:58:24.
:58:24.:58:28.

And he is heading into the quarter- finals. The young man at the centre

:58:28.:58:33.

Olympic quarter-finalist. Magic is beginning to rise again inside the

:58:37.:58:44.

beginning to rise again inside the ExCel. It was a difficult opponent,

:58:44.:58:47.

but he pawn on the pressure and stuck to his tactics, and that is

:58:47.:58:55.

what made the difference. He really got his act together in that third

:58:55.:59:02.

round. The first couple of rounds were, to be frank, pretty dull. As

:59:02.:59:05.

soon as the referee told them to get on with it, he thought, right,

:59:05.:59:14.

I will be the first to get on with it. That will do his confidence a

:59:14.:59:22.

lot of good. He handled the occasion well. He is still a little

:59:22.:59:25.

confused and over awed by the occasion, but the more time you

:59:25.:59:32.

spend on the mat, the better you get. Negmatov got the tactics right,

:59:32.:59:39.

but it was the flexibility in the end, the second kick, that was the

:59:39.:59:49.
:59:49.:59:51.

double tap shot that the British It was a bit of a trouble --

struggle in the end the 21-year-old Latika Muhammad, but he can

:59:55.:00:05.
:00:05.:00:07.

contemplate a place in the Olympic You left it late, didn't you?

:00:07.:00:12.

but I am glad to have got through. I feel much more confident going

:00:12.:00:16.

into the next round. You are looking a bit shocked by it all,

:00:16.:00:22.

are you OK? Yes, it is OK, the a as fear is fantastic, but I feel a lot

:00:22.:00:27.

better I have got it out of the way. Does that relieve come up with what

:00:27.:00:33.

has gone on to the build-up to these Games? No, not at all. It is

:00:33.:00:39.

like any other tournament and I do not feel any different. I am in the

:00:39.:00:43.

quarter-final and hopefully I can progress. You talk about the

:00:43.:00:48.

reception of the fans, it was a terrific reception. I am from east

:00:48.:00:56.

London, born and bred and I want to give the crowd a gold medal. Well

:00:56.:01:02.

done, Lutalo Muhammad. That was a decisive final few moments in his

:01:02.:01:08.

bout. He is through to the quarter- final which will happen at about

:01:08.:01:12.

3:45pm this supplement. Everything is packed into one day for all of

:01:12.:01:17.

the fighters. If he gets through to the final, it will be tonight. He

:01:17.:01:22.

will be hoping to emulate what Jade Jones did yesterday. Sarah

:01:22.:01:26.

Stevenson in the women's fight still has the possibility of a

:01:26.:01:29.

bronze medal if her opponent makes it through to the final tonight. We

:01:29.:01:35.

will have to wait and see what happens there. Plenty of excitement

:01:35.:01:40.

at the taekwondo. Just before we move on, we can remind you that

:01:40.:01:48.

there will be no rest for at Manish Bhasin at the Excel centre because

:01:48.:01:58.
:01:58.:02:31.

they will be football continuing It is hard to imagine the football

:02:31.:02:40.

season is almost upon us. It kicks off a week on Saturday on BBC One.

:02:40.:02:44.

There are still three days of Olympic action to enjoy, so let's

:02:44.:02:54.
:02:54.:03:22.

get back to Eton Dorney. Next up in Only one drops out. Lane 34 China

:03:22.:03:32.
:03:32.:03:34.

is looking strong. The Spaniard is ahead, but Jess Walker is going

:03:34.:03:44.
:03:44.:03:47.

strong in lane three. Nice smooth, long strokes. The Spaniards takes a

:03:47.:03:57.
:03:57.:04:03.

lead in this race. Jess Walker came in third, I think. The Spaniard

:04:03.:04:13.

takes the wind. Six go through. She looked very strong, almost a length

:04:13.:04:18.

clear at the finish. She had a great start as well. We have

:04:18.:04:21.

already commented about how important it is to get that great

:04:21.:04:29.

start at the 200m and then get the pace up as quickly as you can,

:04:29.:04:34.

generally hit it at 50m and then hang on. The Spaniard has been

:04:34.:04:44.
:04:44.:04:46.

world champion, but that was 2002 and 2005. Just getting in in third

:04:46.:04:56.
:04:56.:05:02.

place. Jess Walker is in fourth place and that gets a cheer from

:05:02.:05:06.

the crowd as it is announced. The Spaniard looks very impressive

:05:06.:05:16.
:05:16.:05:38.

A good result for Jess Walker of Great Britain who is into the semi-

:05:38.:05:42.

finals. William Heath and Jon Schofield are beginning their quest

:05:42.:05:47.

for gold in the men's kayak double. They are European champions and

:05:47.:05:52.

world silver medallists. They start their campaign in lane five of the

:05:52.:05:56.

second heat and the top five will make it through to tomorrow's semi-

:05:56.:06:06.
:06:06.:06:30.

for the last three years, but this is a step up. The Belgians are more

:06:30.:06:40.
:06:40.:06:45.

1,000m specialists really. The second heat, the final heat in the

:06:45.:06:55.
:06:55.:07:15.

men's KT22 hundred metres. Five to looking to get away strong need.

:07:15.:07:21.

They are out quickest at the moment. But Argentina are also going

:07:21.:07:27.

strongly in yellow. Belarus are coming back at them and they are

:07:27.:07:37.
:07:37.:07:39.

leading as they come into the final 100m. And Belarus finishes strongly.

:07:39.:07:49.

Liam Heath and Jon Schofield were in second place. Belarus are

:07:49.:07:58.

looking strong, two very powerful figures. We will know more when we

:07:58.:08:04.

come to the semi-finals. It is a tough competition out there with

:08:05.:08:14.
:08:15.:08:16.

Belarus. They are quite a contrast to our two, who are lighter and

:08:16.:08:22.

smaller framed. I did not feel we got as good a start as we sometimes

:08:22.:08:30.

do. They might look at that. Belarus with a couple of metres on

:08:30.:08:40.
:08:40.:08:44.

the British boat. It is Sarah Murphy to the K1, 200m. -- similar.

:08:44.:08:54.
:08:54.:09:03.

They get out very quickly and then hang on a little bit. There is a

:09:03.:09:13.
:09:13.:09:22.

difference in their physique as you Certainly fast and furious as we

:09:22.:09:27.

imagined at the start of the day. We are now into the semi-final

:09:27.:09:32.

phase of the day and there are lots of races in the next hour. Ed

:09:32.:09:39.

McKeever's is about 11:20am. One of the voices you heard in commentary

:09:39.:09:43.

was Helen Reeves. Over the course of these Olympics we have been

:09:43.:09:47.

trying to tell the stories of the members of our BBC team and about

:09:48.:09:57.
:09:58.:10:07.

how they got into their particular I first got into canoeing through

:10:07.:10:11.

my brother. He saw a programme on the television and decided he

:10:11.:10:17.

wanted to have a go. Being a younger sister I got dragged to

:10:17.:10:23.

gone -- along. When I got there I got about half a metre away from

:10:23.:10:27.

the bank and burst into tears, so it was not the most successful

:10:27.:10:31.

start to my canoeing Korea. The canal was only a couple of hundred

:10:31.:10:36.

metres up the road, so I used to walk from my house to the canal,

:10:36.:10:41.

but the older I got there more embarrassing this became an

:10:41.:10:45.

particularly when I got to college age. It was not a cool thing to be

:10:45.:10:51.

doing. There are ate a lot of very competent canoeist who took her

:10:51.:10:55.

under their wing and saw her potential very quickly. My friends

:10:55.:10:59.

at school thought I was crazy, but they were incredibly supportive and

:10:59.:11:02.

would sit there with their umbrellas watching the car around

:11:02.:11:10.

in circles. As time went on at they thought I was less crazy. Helen was

:11:10.:11:15.

a very good all-round athlete anyway, so was always very well co-

:11:15.:11:20.

ordinated and a very good runner. Once she got the basics she got

:11:21.:11:27.

success very quickly. The Olympic experience was so much bigger than

:11:28.:11:33.

I had anticipated. We had lots of talks about how it would be a

:11:33.:11:37.

different experience and I did not believe half of it. I thought I

:11:37.:11:42.

would just turn up and I would do what I do every time, but it was

:11:42.:11:47.

just incredible. When you first go out into the stadium, there is this

:11:47.:11:52.

big stand in front of you and I thought, Oh, my goodness, this is

:11:52.:11:58.

all for us. The day I remember of the final I remember having this

:11:58.:12:03.

massive rush of energy and I thought, this is it. The countdown

:12:03.:12:09.

felt so slow. Then I went off the start and I hit the gate three. I

:12:09.:12:15.

thought, I have to keep it together. There was a disastrous part where I

:12:15.:12:21.

actually missed the gate. The commentators said there was no

:12:21.:12:29.

chance of a medal. I ended up in fourth place. The end was nerve-

:12:29.:12:34.

racking because of the way the results came. It was like a mistake,

:12:34.:12:40.

so to finish 4th is good, but it is disappointing. Halfway through that

:12:40.:12:44.

interview I heard a screaming noise from my physio and I looked across

:12:44.:12:49.

and it had popped up that I was third. Do you want to chat with

:12:49.:12:56.

them? I have got a medal somehow. From that point it was a roller-

:12:56.:13:01.

coaster. Fantastic news, Helen Reeves has got the bronze medal and

:13:01.:13:07.

the French are relegated into 4th. That felt like a gold medal to me.

:13:07.:13:14.

If he would like to get involved in the sport, get along to the website.

:13:14.:13:19.

That is Helen's story, the story behind her success and she is part

:13:19.:13:29.
:13:29.:13:34.

of our commentary team. Let's join we she Daz Rishi Persad.

:13:34.:13:42.

Ed McKeever goes in the semi-finals of his event at 1123. One of his

:13:42.:13:52.

big rivals is Poland. It came through the quickest in his heat

:13:52.:13:56.

and was very impressive and is one of the outstanding 200m kayak

:13:56.:14:01.

singles competitors in the world. The way he performed, the confident

:14:01.:14:06.

manner in which he started, and he was able to ease off in the last

:14:06.:14:10.

few metres and it suggests he is in great shape going into the semi-

:14:10.:14:16.

finals. It has looked absolutely beautiful at Eton Dorney would be

:14:16.:14:20.

the poor weather, but also are the conditions on the water difficult

:14:20.:14:25.

with the wind today? It that you look behind me at the flags, they

:14:25.:14:31.

are barely flattering. It is perfect conditions at Eton Dorney.

:14:31.:14:39.

Lovely sunshine, hardly a breath of wind. It is perfect for a regatta.

:14:39.:14:44.

When the canoeists go down to the start, because the races are over

:14:44.:14:48.

200m, they are basically in a tunnel anyway and there is not that

:14:48.:14:53.

much of an effect. It would not be too bad for the canoeists and

:14:53.:15:03.
:15:03.:15:04.

everything is set for some fast Now it is the turn of the canoe

:15:04.:15:09.

sprinters. It is just about time for this next semi-final to begin,

:15:09.:15:14.

so let's join Andrew Cotter and Helen Reeves.

:15:14.:15:24.
:15:24.:15:25.

Things start to get serious nerve. It is the first four -- four From H

:15:25.:15:35.
:15:35.:15:43.

rather new, and the atmosphere has been fantastic. They go down to

:15:43.:15:53.
:15:53.:15:57.

near silence at the start, and a drumbeat to ramp up the tension.

:15:57.:16:07.
:16:07.:16:23.

Lookout for the Spanish and the competitor is just leading ahead of

:16:23.:16:33.
:16:33.:17:12.

extremely tight finish. I think he just, just got it. It is very hard

:17:12.:17:20.

to tell. This title may be settled by a matter of inches. We will

:17:20.:17:30.
:17:30.:17:31.

confirm that on a photo finish. We are actually getting our results,

:17:31.:17:41.

which are unofficial, the Canadian getting it. It will be decided.

:17:41.:17:51.
:17:51.:17:59.

They went off very strongly at the start. De Jonge Just got it on the

:17:59.:18:09.
:18:09.:18:11.

Well, we will have more semi-finals from the Ecco Newsprint coming up,

:18:11.:18:15.

but we are also keeping an eye on another watery seemed a Olympic

:18:15.:18:19.

event, the men's open-water swimming, which is going to take

:18:19.:18:25.

place once again in the Serpentine in Hyde Park. Let's join Clare

:18:25.:18:30.

Balding he was down there today. Thanks, Michelle. Again, taking

:18:30.:18:34.

place in beautiful conditions, and with me is Keri-Anne Payne who

:18:34.:18:40.

finished 4th yesterday. How are you today? I am gutted about yesterday,

:18:40.:18:45.

to be honest. When you just work so hard and trained for so long, and

:18:45.:18:49.

so much people have put time and energy into you, I feel gutted

:18:49.:18:54.

about that. But this has not been a great season for me with injuries

:18:54.:18:58.

and illnesses, and a change of coach as well, so I am really proud

:18:58.:19:06.

of where I came. It is a brutal race. Look at Keri-Anne Payne's me,

:19:06.:19:10.

all bandaged up. After the race she found it a bit of the struggle to

:19:10.:19:15.

walk. I have never had a problem with my knees before, but I went

:19:15.:19:19.

back to the hotel and laid down for five minutes, and when I got up and

:19:19.:19:24.

started walking around, it hurt really badly. I don't know why.

:19:24.:19:29.

They don't think it affected anything in the race. But it shows

:19:29.:19:33.

how much your body is put through on a race like this, and things you

:19:33.:19:40.

didn't feel worse or yesterday are absolutely killing me today.

:19:40.:19:43.

have been discussing the things that happened, that you are still

:19:43.:19:47.

having flashbacks to, and one of the moment was the Fien station on

:19:47.:19:53.

lap three, trying to get over there to get your energy drink. Yes,

:19:53.:19:56.

there is always a great moment in sport, a moment you have to do, at

:19:56.:20:02.

the moment to me was that I had to go and feed. It is always part of

:20:02.:20:06.

my plan. The the station wasn't in the best position, because

:20:06.:20:10.

everybody had to be on the right to turn the corner, but the station

:20:10.:20:16.

was on the left, so my choice was to feed or not and hope that I had

:20:16.:20:21.

enough energy. So I made the choice to try to do that, and I was

:20:21.:20:25.

getting pushed constantly, and I struggled to get across to the left,

:20:25.:20:29.

and I missed the bottle the first time, and by the time I grabbed the

:20:29.:20:35.

second time, the girls behind caught up and swam over me, and I

:20:35.:20:39.

got kicked a couple of times and disorientated, and before I knew it

:20:39.:20:44.

I had gone from first to 7th or 8th, and I had to work hard to get back

:20:44.:20:50.

to a position where I was in fresh out. And I was -- you are not a

:20:50.:20:54.

naturally aggressive person, are you? You are almost too nice for

:20:54.:21:00.

this. Yes, we have done that some bits and pieces with a psychologist,

:21:00.:21:06.

and am definitely a lover and not a fighter, so I try to get out in

:21:06.:21:10.

front and be away from the pack fighting, but it is a great tactic

:21:10.:21:15.

because it worked for the Hungarian yesterday. She was definitely the

:21:15.:21:21.

best athlete on the day. But I did absolutely everything that I could

:21:21.:21:29.

yesterday, and I was so close, 0.4 of a second away from a medal. I am

:21:29.:21:33.

really proud of where I have come and how I got here. You have done a

:21:33.:21:37.

terrific job, and they know how much the crowd lifted you back. You

:21:38.:21:43.

will be part of the crowd today cheering on downfall. What you hope

:21:43.:21:49.

for? I think the boys will be hoping a bit more of the race than

:21:49.:21:52.

yesterday. We had the same conditions we did in Beijing, and

:21:52.:21:56.

we were three minutes quicker, so I think everybody will be a bit on

:21:56.:22:06.

age. We have pool swimmers in there, but also some big champions in

:22:06.:22:09.

open-water swimming, so it'll be interesting to see which one takes

:22:09.:22:14.

it out, and how fast the last lap will be. We are really looking

:22:14.:22:20.

forward to watching it. Thomas alerts is probably the favourite.

:22:20.:22:23.

Coverage starts on BBC Three at 3 o'clock.

:22:24.:22:29.

That description of what it is like, so difficult for the athletes. We

:22:29.:22:33.

go straight back to Eton Dorney, because this is going to be Ed

:22:33.:22:43.
:22:43.:22:48.

McKeever's semi-final in the men's four to go through to the file. De

:22:49.:22:55.

Jong won the first semi-final. McKeever was quickest in the heats.

:22:55.:23:05.
:23:05.:23:06.

He goes in lane five for Great Britain. And they are away so

:23:06.:23:12.

quickly. Ed McKeever has a good power-to-weight ratio that carries

:23:12.:23:22.
:23:22.:23:28.

him forward. He is setting the pace a little at Ed McKeever. Ed

:23:28.:23:33.

McKeever is hanging on as they come into the final 50. In fact, his

:23:33.:23:40.

lead is stretching a little. Ed Nikki Gregg takes a victory in the

:23:40.:23:43.

second semi-final, and we will wait for exact confirmation of a time,

:23:43.:23:48.

but he looked comfortable and strong. He is safely through to the

:23:48.:23:55.

final and he has done it in winning style. Fantastic, he jumped out of

:23:55.:24:03.

the bucket and got himself up and running. A real dominant

:24:03.:24:10.

performance there from Ed McKeever. We were concerned about the form of

:24:10.:24:16.

the world champion from Poland. And there is the time, just a fraction

:24:16.:24:26.

slower than the first semi-final. Beaumont took second. The defending

:24:26.:24:32.

world champion who had a wrist injury is in fact out. Not so

:24:32.:24:37.

McKeever. Just look at the style here. Just dipping his head,

:24:37.:24:42.

reaching forward and powering on. Sometimes he is a little more

:24:42.:24:47.

ragged. There is plenty of raw power there. It is difficult to

:24:47.:24:52.

make sure you keep the control and technique throughout the 200m.

:24:52.:24:57.

Lactic acid starts kicking in with around 50m to go, and your arms are

:24:57.:25:07.
:25:07.:25:16.

just hanging on to get the last few years ago, silver last year in the

:25:16.:25:26.
:25:26.:25:28.

world championship. Szymanowski is out. McKeever, his work is done.

:25:28.:25:31.

delight he was fighting with those guys, don't touch the boat.

:25:32.:25:39.

Precious cargo. There is the confirmation. Ed McKeever is

:25:39.:25:47.

through, just ahead of Beaumont. Ed McKeever is through to tomorrow's

:25:47.:25:57.
:25:57.:25:58.

Ed McKeever is just going to grab a drink before he comes to have a

:25:58.:26:06.

chat with us here. He has had to wait a little bit. He went off with

:26:06.:26:09.

the Great Britain commuting to Barcelona in preparation for this

:26:09.:26:15.

event. They have missed being at a hotel with the rollers. But he said

:26:15.:26:18.

that they were keeping an eye on what was going on, and it has

:26:18.:26:24.

helped to inspire the team. Ed, we all just eulogising about that

:26:24.:26:29.

tremendous effort. It seems you are coming to your peak? Yes, it is

:26:29.:26:33.

good. We are coming back from a good training camp, feeling good

:26:33.:26:37.

and looking forward to racing tomorrow now. You had to almost

:26:37.:26:41.

keep yourself caged for the first few days, watching the other guys

:26:41.:26:45.

compete. It has been really frustrating watching everyone else

:26:45.:26:50.

go out and Great Britain winning so many medals, and it is just

:26:50.:26:58.

annoying. Quickest time overall in the semis? Yes, and hopefully we

:26:58.:27:02.

will see what happens tomorrow. Well done, and we will see what

:27:02.:27:05.

happens tomorrow. Thank you very much.

:27:05.:27:10.

A Ed McKeever, a strong performance from him in the morning's heat. His

:27:10.:27:14.

final will take place at about half-past nine tomorrow morning, so

:27:14.:27:19.

we will hope perhaps for an early middle from Great Britain. The

:27:19.:27:22.

canoe sprint action will continue with the rest of those semi-finals

:27:22.:27:25.
