Hello, and welcome to the penultimate day of London's Olympic

:01:54.:02:00.

Games. It's all nearly over. But today, 32 gold medals can be won,

:02:00.:02:06.

the most on offer in any day. So, can two of our biggest names top

:02:06.:02:11.

the podium, and end this fantastic fortnight in style?

:02:11.:02:15.

18-year-old Tom Daley has an old head on young shoulders. But, will

:02:15.:02:21.

he have a medal around his neck tonight, at the Aquatics Centre?

:02:21.:02:24.

A week on from that sensational Saturday, can Mo Farah light up the

:02:25.:02:32.

Olympic Stadium again, with a delightful double? It's 25 golds,

:02:32.:02:36.

and counting. Could canoe sprint deliver number 26 for Great

:02:36.:02:44.

Britain? Ed McKeever hopes so. And there's high expectations for

:02:44.:02:47.

European champions Jon Schofield and Liam Heath, in the kayak double

:02:47.:02:54.

later this morning. So here's what we have in store for

:02:54.:03:00.

The finals get underway at Eton Dorney at 9.30, with Ed McKeever

:03:00.:03:02.

first up. After that, we'll be off to the

:03:02.:03:05.

Aquatics Centre, for the semi- finals of the men's diving.

:03:05.:03:09.

It's back to the canoe sprint in between, with Jess Walker also in

:03:09.:03:11.

action. Later today, there's the final of

:03:11.:03:13.

the men's football: Brazil versus Mexico.

:03:13.:03:16.

Britain's men's hockey team get a chance to emulate the women, and

:03:16.:03:20.

claim a bronze medal, with an Ashes clash on BBC Three this afternoon.

:03:20.:03:25.

At 7.30 tonight, Mo Farah goes in search of 5,000 metre glory.

:03:25.:03:29.

Tom Daley will hopefully be back on the diving board for the final, at

:03:29.:03:31.

8.30. And Britain's Luke Campbell fights

:03:31.:03:41.
:03:41.:03:41.

Ireland's John Joe Nevin in the So, a big day here at the Olympics.

:03:41.:03:44.

But we start today with what's happening in the Aquatics Centre,

:03:44.:03:47.

where the latest stage of Tom Daley's Olympic journey unfolds. He

:03:47.:03:50.

became Britain's youngest ever champion in an Olympic sport when

:03:50.:03:55.

he won the world championship at 15. He has lived in the media spotlight

:03:55.:03:59.

ever since. So, after years of hype, has the 18 year old from Plymouth

:03:59.:04:09.
:04:09.:04:14.

From a height of 10 because, it takes Tom david swan 0.6 seconds to

:04:14.:04:22.

hit the water. He is judged by those who know diving inside out

:04:22.:04:27.

and upside down, at normal speed. For the rest of us, he has to be

:04:27.:04:35.

slowed down. Only then, do all the twists and turns of his life reveal

:04:35.:04:40.

themselves. So, there is a distortion to how we see the world

:04:40.:04:46.

of Tom Daley. From the moment he looked up at the age of seven at

:04:46.:04:50.

that platform high above Central Park School in his home city of

:04:50.:04:56.

Plymouth, and told his dad that up there is one -- where he wanted to

:04:56.:05:01.

climb, he has been this prodigy falling gracefully, unable to

:05:01.:05:07.

escape analysis and scrutiny. He began to make an impact at

:05:07.:05:11.

international competition at the age of nine. He was bullied at

:05:11.:05:17.

school. He went to the Beijing Olympics at the age of 14.

:05:17.:05:27.
:05:27.:05:28.

Brilliant. In 2009, he became individual world champion in Rome.

:05:28.:05:38.
:05:38.:05:38.

Tom, come here and give me a cuddle. He won individual gold at the

:05:38.:05:45.

Commonwealth Games, and in the synchronised. His companion, driver,

:05:45.:05:55.
:05:55.:05:56.

film-maker, best mate, his father, aged 40, died of a brain tumour.

:05:56.:06:00.

This year, Tom won the individual 10m platform in the European

:06:00.:06:06.

Championships. But, was he doing too much of this? And even in

:06:06.:06:12.

London, is there no escape of being visible, available to be insulted?

:06:12.:06:19.

He is up there with the best. This is his moment. But, can he beat Qiu

:06:19.:06:27.

Bo, his arch rival? For the twists and turns of Bint Tom Daley.

:06:27.:06:31.

Perhaps we will never see him as he truly is at normal speed, and we

:06:31.:06:35.

should only worry that he does not go the other way of other child

:06:35.:06:42.

stars. Except, falling is what Tom Daley does. How we see him is no

:06:42.:06:47.

more distorted than how he sees the world, from a handstand on the edge

:06:47.:06:51.

a rig platform 10m up there. Perhaps we should simply enjoyed

:06:52.:06:59.

Tom Daley and all he does, while it lasts. I was nine when I drew this,

:06:59.:07:08.

we are doing a handstand in London 2012. All 1.6 seconds of it.

:07:08.:07:11.

When Tom dives, the voice you hear commentating is Leon Taylor, Athens

:07:11.:07:21.
:07:21.:07:21.

silver medallist. And he's here now. It has been quite a journey for him,

:07:21.:07:25.

particularly since Beijing. Certainly, watching the video, it

:07:25.:07:30.

shows how long we have known about this young child prodigy. How he

:07:31.:07:37.

has grown, here he is in his second Olympic Games, at the age of 18. It

:07:37.:07:46.

is a tough, a rollercoaster. The nation is glued to the TV. He is in

:07:47.:07:53.

the semi-finals this morning. Last night wasn't great actually. He has

:07:53.:07:57.

had to cope with the loss of his father, someone incredibly

:07:58.:08:02.

important to him in his development as a diver. The great thing about

:08:02.:08:08.

Tom Daley, he seems way above his ears. Everything that life throws

:08:08.:08:14.

at him, in and out of the swindle macro, major life events, losing

:08:14.:08:21.

his father, which would rock anyone, he has managed that incredibly well.

:08:21.:08:28.

He is an inspiration. At the tender age of 18, lots of people are

:08:28.:08:37.

behind him. It is a big day. cannot be easy. British Olympians

:08:37.:08:42.

going into this, he is probably one of the best known, and he hasn't

:08:42.:08:49.

won a medal. Tom Daley is an example, he is so close to so many

:08:49.:08:59.
:08:59.:08:59.

of the young people. He is so accessible, so young. Four years

:08:59.:09:07.

ago, in Beijing. He has grown up now.

:09:07.:09:11.

Tom gets under way at 10am this morning. And we're now down to the

:09:11.:09:14.

last 18 divers, after last night's preliminary rounds. It's fair to

:09:14.:09:17.

say, though, it didn't quite go according to plan for Tom at the

:09:17.:09:27.
:09:27.:09:34.

COMMENTATOR: Here he comes. He hasn't a lot to smile about at the

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

that put him right back into the competition.

:09:44.:09:49.

It is fair to say it has taken a little while for Tom Daley to warm

:09:49.:09:59.
:09:59.:10:11.

crowd cannot believe what they are saying.

:10:11.:10:19.

Now, Tom Daley. Not a good start. There is no margin for error on

:10:19.:10:29.
:10:29.:10:40.

this dive. Just do it right and you Part of the Olympic Games is you

:10:40.:10:44.

have to go through three rounds before you get to the final.

:10:44.:10:51.

Normally, the semi-final doesn't have many competitors but this was

:10:51.:11:01.
:11:01.:11:05.

He only just scraped into this. was touch and go. Tom and Pete

:11:05.:11:09.

Waterfield, they both seemed relaxed. As soon as the competition

:11:09.:11:13.

started, they looked jittery, they didn't seem to be enjoying their

:11:13.:11:19.

moment. There was nowhere to hide, if you are feeling the pressure. It

:11:19.:11:26.

is such an accurate sport. If the nerves are affecting you, it is

:11:26.:11:33.

obvious. As Tom Daley mentioned, it is a long competition. Right at the

:11:33.:11:38.

end. The pressure was building. They were not able to stand up in

:11:38.:11:45.

the beginning. Tom made it through. It is a marathon of diving. The

:11:45.:11:50.

points do not carry, which is in his favour. This morning, they

:11:50.:12:00.
:12:00.:12:10.

start from scratch. He had some macro -- dives to last. The entry

:12:10.:12:17.

into the water needs to be vertical with as little splash as possible.

:12:17.:12:26.

As low as possible. And a vertical entry. That was marginally short of

:12:26.:12:33.

vertical. Anything far away from vertical is when the marks go very

:12:33.:12:43.
:12:43.:12:43.

low, we saw a few of those, and usually. Let us look at this one.

:12:43.:12:50.

3.6 degree of difficulty. A little bit weak on take-off. He wasn't

:12:50.:13:00.
:13:00.:13:04.

He was arching, which meant that the dive was not complete. He

:13:04.:13:09.

needed his last dive to kick him in. A few people last night were

:13:09.:13:18.

wobbling. Pete Waterfield didn't make it through. You know him very

:13:18.:13:26.

well, you want your medal together. His 4th Olympic Games. I spoke to

:13:26.:13:32.

him. This is the one that let him down. He said, adding to have any

:13:32.:13:39.

nerves Until I stood on the diving board and it hit me like a train.

:13:39.:13:47.

He really struggled after that. The enormity of the occasion. Whatever

:13:47.:13:53.

field you are in, no matter how much you prepare, you still don't

:13:53.:13:59.

know what that moment will feel like. You can't get 17,000 people

:13:59.:14:03.

to come in and watch you train, it is difficult to replicate those

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

conditions. I am hoping and wishing that Tom can perform as he can. I

:14:13.:14:19.

am not going to talk about medals. If I see him produce the

:14:20.:14:24.

performance he can, he will be very competitive. That's all you can

:14:24.:14:30.

ever ask for, in an Olympic final, be competitive. It has been such a

:14:30.:14:37.

long journey. You get scored for the way you execute a dive, and how

:14:37.:14:42.

hard it is. After last night, when he changed what he does in his

:14:42.:14:51.

choice? He definitely will not. In diving, you do six different dives,

:14:51.:15:00.

they are judged on execution, to give a total for a cumulative score.

:15:00.:15:05.

He will perform exactly the same, in the same order. He needs to get

:15:05.:15:10.

rid of those nerves and stop performing at the level he wants to.

:15:11.:15:17.

I am hoping the one thing I would say it is, put the smile on your

:15:17.:15:24.

face, that changes everything in the body. He cannot block out the

:15:24.:15:29.

crowd but you can let it is by you. Those who have done the best job

:15:29.:15:39.
:15:39.:15:50.

have stood on the diving board, Yes, Chinese divers were on fire

:15:50.:15:58.

for stopped judo was faultless. He finished 110 points ahead of Tom

:15:58.:16:06.

Daley. Qui Bo did not even need to perform his final dive to qualify

:16:06.:16:15.

for the semi-final. And they knew was up there as well. And the

:16:15.:16:19.

German gave an exceptional performance in the Pillar Mary's.

:16:19.:16:25.

It will be exciting. Be to is a very competitive field so the best

:16:25.:16:33.

of luck to Tom Daley. If Tom Daley, Mo Farah, Luke

:16:33.:16:38.

Campbell and Ed McKeever do top the podium, it is worth looking at the

:16:38.:16:43.

contrasting celebrations. We have seen all sorts of ways of enjoying

:16:43.:16:47.

a golden moment. Jason Muhammad thought he would seek out the

:16:47.:16:53.

special ones. The golden moment, everything wants

:16:53.:16:59.

it. What do you do when you have won it. Who has done the most

:16:59.:17:03.

stylish celebration of London 2012? They have had four years to think

:17:03.:17:11.

about it. The German discus champion rip his top off like the

:17:11.:17:17.

Hulk and then took to the hurdles. Ben Ainslie lifts up the Weymouth

:17:17.:17:22.

Coast line. We have had splashing swimmers,

:17:22.:17:30.

track kissing, medal kissing, medal biting, flag-waving. And if you

:17:30.:17:34.

want commitment, it does not get better than dancing Denise Lewis

:17:34.:17:39.

and the boys in the studio. But which golden moments have shone

:17:39.:17:47.

brightest? Was it this... SCREAMING: make some noise for the

:17:47.:17:50.

screening. Is your money on the move they have

:17:50.:18:00.
:18:00.:18:02.

been calling the move by Mo Farah. The feel the Love, Team GB, pure

:18:02.:18:06.

passion from a Victoria Pendleton. The moment of the sweetheart of the

:18:06.:18:12.

track gave us her heart. Pointing, Andy Murray mastered it. If he

:18:12.:18:18.

don't want to look up, hit the deck and cover your eyes. Lie back and

:18:18.:18:24.

think of Britain, Jessica, you deserve the rest. He had just won

:18:24.:18:28.

the gold medal, how do you celebrate? Chris Hoy likes to keep

:18:28.:18:36.

it old school. Chris Hoy gets the gold medal. He loves a hope, too.

:18:36.:18:42.

And we have seen lots of hugging. Most of it has been done by Sir

:18:42.:18:51.

Steve Redgrave. Keep on hugging! And there have been crying, it has

:18:51.:18:57.

been emotional. There is one celebration, one athlete who has

:18:57.:19:05.

captured the imagination with this... His signature move. So for

:19:05.:19:09.

all of you aspiring athletes, it is great to dream about the golden

:19:09.:19:13.

moment, but a unique to think about what you will do when you get

:19:13.:19:20.

there! -- you need to think. Some of those fantastic moments.

:19:20.:19:29.

There are so Steve Redgrave gets my boat for the hugging. Now to think

:19:30.:19:33.

about the four years of hard work that ends in disappointment and the

:19:33.:19:37.

finals of the BMX cycling went that way for the British psyche has,

:19:37.:19:45.

both Sinead read and her counterpart had at progressed well

:19:45.:19:55.
:19:55.:20:09.

Shanaze Reade. She came out with absolute confidence. The first

:20:09.:20:14.

rider to go sub 40, very nice work, Shanaze Reade. She is getting

:20:14.:20:20.

caught in traffic. She is in 6th position at the moment, so much to

:20:20.:20:27.

do. Bitter disappointment for Shanaze Reade. Difficult few days

:20:27.:20:34.

and she is with me. How are you feeling? It is starting to sink in

:20:34.:20:39.

that I did not come away with a medal that I had trained so hard to

:20:39.:20:45.

do so. But I have enjoyed the whole experience of these Olympic Games.

:20:45.:20:51.

The crowd have been so phenomenal. It has been incredible. What do you

:20:51.:20:55.

think went wrong in the end? Was it the pressure and it being

:20:55.:21:00.

overwhelming, but he did have a difficult start? I am not

:21:00.:21:08.

disappointed, because in the heats I had one of the hardest. I was

:21:08.:21:13.

battling with Caroline Buchanan from Australia. In the final I

:21:13.:21:16.

thought I would play it safe a little bit to get out of trouble on

:21:16.:21:22.

what was going on on the outside. I paused for the split second and

:21:22.:21:27.

everybody came across to get on the inside of the first corner. I felt

:21:27.:21:32.

myself trapped in and they could not do anything. The nature of the

:21:32.:21:38.

sport, you have a split second to make those decisions and it can

:21:38.:21:46.

then quickly? Yes, that is exciting part of the sport. It is a great

:21:46.:21:49.

spectacle for people to watch, because it is exciting from start

:21:49.:21:54.

to finish. It has been one of the hottest tickets. The only criticism

:21:54.:21:59.

I have heard is everybody flashes by too quickly and it is over so

:21:59.:22:04.

fast? If I could have had one more than one opportunity to go again

:22:04.:22:11.

after that, I would have. I was proud of myself how I did, and how

:22:11.:22:15.

my sponsors got behind me up to the Olympic Games. It has been

:22:15.:22:19.

phenomenal. I am gutted I did not come away with a medal, but I can

:22:19.:22:25.

hold my head up high and say added my best. You certainly can,

:22:25.:22:28.

Victoria Pendleton was there yesterday. You know her pretty

:22:28.:22:37.

well? Yes. And David Beckham? not see him, my eyesight is not the

:22:37.:22:43.

best. You do go by pretty quickly. It is good he came and watch.

:22:43.:22:50.

are only 23, so you have time? You will be back? Definitely. I will

:22:50.:22:57.

keep training to be the Olympic champion. I have the attributes to

:22:57.:23:02.

the Olympic champion and I just need to puts it together on the day.

:23:02.:23:06.

I am going to take it step back door few weeks and gather my

:23:06.:23:11.

thoughts and see where I go. But I definitely want to be in Rio.

:23:11.:23:17.

Whether it will be on the track, BMX, I do not know. He will

:23:17.:23:23.

consider track Cycling for real? Absolutely, it is a possibility.

:23:23.:23:28.

Victoria has retired and it leaves the door open for other British

:23:28.:23:31.

athletes coming through. I have demonstrated I am good at track

:23:31.:23:37.

cycling, getting the gold medal with Victoria. And you are also in

:23:37.:23:42.

one piece, which is not always the case. We have seen plenty of riders

:23:42.:23:46.

crashing. You have had your share of broken bones, how many injuries

:23:46.:23:54.

have you had? To name a few, I have broken my elbow, I have snapped the

:23:54.:23:59.

ligaments of my wrist, dislocated both shoulders, broken my knee,

:23:59.:24:04.

broken bones in my feet, my hands. It is not to put people off the

:24:04.:24:08.

sport, it is the nature of the sport. It doesn't always happen to

:24:08.:24:13.

everyone, but sometimes you can be caught out. Have they ever been a

:24:13.:24:16.

moment when you have wavered and thought, this is putting myself

:24:16.:24:22.

through too much? It is getting harder to cope with the injuries as

:24:22.:24:29.

you get older, but it is part and parcel. I started racing from the

:24:29.:24:34.

age of 10, and it is all I news. I was crashing from the beginning

:24:34.:24:37.

because you want to expand your skills and take chances. And I

:24:37.:24:42.

thought if this is what it is about, I have to put up with its. This has

:24:42.:24:47.

not ended the way you would have wished it, but when you look back,

:24:47.:24:53.

how we remember these two weeks? Probably the best of my life. It is

:24:53.:24:57.

such a contrast to Beijing when I went in and felt so much pressure,

:24:57.:25:04.

stress and anxiety. But it has been the opposite, I have been a very

:25:04.:25:09.

chilled every day, I have enjoyed the crowd, everything, the whole

:25:09.:25:13.

experience. It has not been the result that I wanted, I came away

:25:13.:25:18.

with six position, went away with 8th position in Beijing, so I guess

:25:18.:25:23.

it is a move up the ladder. But it has been the best two weeks of my

:25:23.:25:29.

life. The BMX has been fantastic to watch. You have some big decisions

:25:29.:25:35.

to make, but take your time in making them and well done.

:25:35.:25:39.

There was disappointment on the BMX track for Great Britain, but could

:25:39.:25:43.

there be happier times at Eton Dorney this morning? That is an

:25:43.:25:50.

event that has inspired a lot of medals for the rowers. Setting the

:25:50.:25:59.

scene in Berkshire, Helen Reeves. It is a glorious morning, if not a

:25:59.:26:04.

little windy which may have an effect on the canoeists. That will

:26:04.:26:10.

have a headwind in the faces of the guys and girls this morning? It all

:26:10.:26:16.

mean do tide won't be as fast. The weather forecast has said it might

:26:16.:26:21.

turn into a crosswind, and if that happens, lane seven and eight might

:26:21.:26:26.

be affected. Because it is in the grandstand and the tunnelling of

:26:26.:26:31.

the course, hopefully it won't have any effect on the racing conditions.

:26:31.:26:35.

This is the day when are strong as medal hopes are in action and it is

:26:35.:26:40.

Ed McKeever, the man dubbed the Usain Bolt of canoeing. He has

:26:40.:26:44.

looked impressive in the heats and semi-finals and has sacrifice so

:26:44.:26:49.

much in his personal life to go for the gold medal? He came out

:26:49.:26:54.

yesterday, dominated the heats and the semi-final. He will be under

:26:54.:27:01.

attack from other competitors. The Canadian was there. There will be

:27:01.:27:06.

competition, the 200m is incredibly tight. Ed McKeever was looking

:27:06.:27:13.

great. He has said he is coming here for the gold. He is so calm,

:27:13.:27:18.

despite the weight of expectation, he is taking it in his stride?

:27:18.:27:22.

seems to be in a focused frame of mind and maintaining it, which is

:27:22.:27:27.

incredible. He has not been affected by the crowd or anything.

:27:27.:27:33.

Fingers crossed. Give us an idea of his standing. He was world champion

:27:33.:27:37.

a couple of years ago, he has been the leader of the pack in Great

:27:37.:27:42.

Britain over this distance? Absolutely, he has dominated

:27:42.:27:47.

internationally and nationally. In 2010 he came out wanting everything.

:27:47.:27:53.

Got beaten a few times in the World Cups, but was European champion in

:27:53.:27:59.

2011. But I think it almost made him mentally stronger to come out

:27:59.:28:03.

here, having been beaten at the European Championships and stamp

:28:03.:28:07.

his authority in the early part of the rates. Jess Walker got through

:28:07.:28:13.

to the final of the women's kayak 200. She was counting how Lucky

:28:13.:28:17.

Star has. She said she could not believe it will stop she is a

:28:17.:28:22.

fantastic performer. She knew she was capable of it, but delighted to

:28:22.:28:27.

be in the final. Now she is in it, it is all about getting a good

:28:27.:28:32.

start and making sure she is in the pack. It will be a tough call to

:28:32.:28:37.

get a month the medalists, but once you are in the race. She is 22 and

:28:37.:28:42.

it is only her second or Olympics, and she is getting better? Yes, she

:28:42.:28:46.

is one of the youngest out there this morning. Pavlysh are well hold

:28:46.:28:51.

her nerve and deliver like she did in the semi-final yesterday.

:28:51.:28:57.

Liam Heath and Jon Schofield, we have high hopes for them in the

:28:57.:29:01.

kayak double. They have been on the podium in nearly every competition

:29:01.:29:07.

they had been in? In the European Championships, they were at the top,

:29:07.:29:10.

hearing the national anthem, which I ensure this is where they want to

:29:10.:29:16.

be today. But there is a strong Russian per in the semi-finals.

:29:17.:29:21.

They will be amongst five of them battling it out for the medal

:29:21.:29:26.

positions. But the British pair have had a taste of what the gold

:29:26.:29:30.

medal is and they will desperately be wanting it. They will want to be

:29:30.:29:34.

on the podium. I am confident in their ability to do that. High

:29:34.:29:38.

hopes of medals today at Eton Dorney, Ed McKeever, we hope for

:29:38.:29:43.

the gold medal for him is off at 9:37am.

:29:43.:29:49.

We will be back with you in a few minutes. Now to hear from the man

:29:49.:29:54.

himself. He said his first Olympic memories go back to Linford

:29:54.:29:58.

Christie and Chris Boardman. Now he aims to join them as the British

:29:58.:30:08.
:30:08.:30:09.

The 500-metre races have been replaced by the 200-metre races,

:30:09.:30:14.

and as a consequence that had improved your chance of a medal.

:30:14.:30:24.

yes, at think it has, I've been successful, silver medal at the

:30:24.:30:29.

World Championships, pretty much in every race I have done for the past

:30:29.:30:35.

three years. I am quite confident of my form going into this one.

:30:36.:30:42.

Tell me how you got into it, way back in 1995. I believe a school

:30:42.:30:51.

friend took you to raid canoe club. Yes, after school. In a small town,

:30:51.:31:00.

not much to do. I ended up wasting by afternoons at the canoe Club.

:31:00.:31:06.

hasn't been a waste, you are doing very well. I have read that you

:31:06.:31:14.

have been likened to the Usain Bolt of canoeing. I have heard that. But

:31:14.:31:23.

Philip I can go as fast as he does. -- Hopefully.

:31:23.:31:26.

Well, whichever way it goes for Ed McKeever, it will all happen

:31:26.:31:32.

quickly. 30 seconds that could define his career are about to get

:31:32.:31:39.

under way at Eton Dorney. The canoe sprint, there are two

:31:39.:31:48.

distinct types of boat. The kayak is raced by up to four competitors,

:31:48.:31:57.

known as K1, K2 and K4. Kayak Evans are contested by men over distances

:31:57.:32:07.

of 201,000 metres. Women compete over 205 hundred metres. The canoe

:32:07.:32:14.

is C1 and C2. It is also contested over 200, and 1000 metres. The

:32:14.:32:21.

canoe it is propelled using single blade paddles, directed by using

:32:21.:32:26.

one stroke on one side. The first to cross is a winner but a

:32:26.:32:32.

PhotoFinish is often required to confirm results. A dead heat in

:32:32.:32:35.

qualifying will see both competitors progress but they may

:32:35.:32:39.

be forced to race again if places are limited.

:33:07.:33:13.

Ed McKeever is the most calm and focused man down here. Yesterday,

:33:13.:33:18.

speaking to him after the semi- finals, despite the fact he was

:33:18.:33:26.

impressive, he didn't get carried away. He had some good times, the

:33:26.:33:32.

fastest time in the heats and semi- finals. His big danger is De Jonge,

:33:32.:33:38.

who has had the fastest time in the world over. Admittedly, and an

:33:38.:33:43.

official time, in the Canadian time-trials. He looked impressive

:33:43.:33:51.

as well. Ed McKeever, world champion two years ago. Impressive.

:33:51.:33:55.

Good winter training. Everything has gone to plan. All he needs now

:33:55.:34:02.

is a little bit of luck, a decent start. Heat is the favourite to win

:34:02.:34:05.

gold medal for Great Britain, to give us a great start to what could

:34:05.:34:13.

be an excellent start at Eton Dorney.

:34:13.:34:19.

He has looked fantastically strong in the heats and semi-finals.

:34:19.:34:26.

looks to be no witness to Ed McKeever. Earlier, talking to Helen,

:34:26.:34:31.

everything has been dedicated to this moment. He moved from Bradford

:34:31.:34:37.

upon Avon, to be close to a good training centre. He has been

:34:37.:34:42.

training at Eton Dorney for several months. He is used to this scenario

:34:43.:34:47.

and the bid situation. His preparation could not have gone any

:34:47.:34:53.

better. The fact he has been the best band in the world, and

:34:53.:35:03.
:35:03.:35:11.

excellent preparations, raises our The stage is set at Eton Dorney,

:35:11.:35:17.

the first of the finals of the day. Let us hand you over to our

:35:17.:35:27.
:35:27.:35:47.

army of fans here. Craviotto, second quickest in the

:35:47.:35:57.
:35:57.:36:04.

won his heat, his semi-final. What a challenge he will face from De

:36:04.:36:11.

Jonge, quickest in the semi-finals. Beaumont, second in his semi-final

:36:11.:36:20.

behind Ed McKeever. Novakovic, the European champion.

:36:20.:36:30.
:36:30.:36:38.

You know it is a good race when tension. The relative quiet before

:36:38.:36:48.
:36:48.:36:58.

with hope for Ed McKeever. That Britain might have a gold medal to

:36:58.:37:05.

celebrate. He will start fast, no doubt about that. They are away

:37:05.:37:14.

first time. Who gets out the quickest? Ed McKeever it is out

:37:14.:37:24.
:37:24.:37:25.

fast. Powering on. He has such great strength. Craviotto tried to

:37:25.:37:32.

get alongside him. Coming into the final 50m. Ed McKeever is still out

:37:32.:37:37.

in front, they will have to work hard. Coming up to the line, still

:37:37.:37:45.

holding on, it is gold for Great Britain, and the quiet man has let

:37:45.:37:51.

out a roar, as he becomes Olympic champion. He went up fast. He held

:37:51.:38:00.

on a strong, he has the gold medal. Absolutely fantastic. He blew the

:38:00.:38:06.

field a way as he powered away from that start bucket, his stroke rate

:38:06.:38:13.

up nice and high. Leaving everyone else to catch him up. He will be

:38:13.:38:21.

delighted, a fantastic three years of competition since his -- this

:38:21.:38:28.

200 metres race has come into play. Craviotto, confirmed silver medal.

:38:28.:38:34.

De Jonge, for the bronze medal. A man who was injured, who thought he

:38:34.:38:40.

might not be in the Olympic Games, after he broke his finger this year.

:38:40.:38:48.

Beaumont just missing out. A look at Ed McKeever go, he --

:38:48.:38:53.

they couldn't get near him. He maintained that need, I thought

:38:53.:38:59.

some of the others might come back. This is the start where he is

:38:59.:39:05.

renowned, that top speed, driving through, using that upper-body. The

:39:05.:39:13.

rotation through his body. Driving those blades into the water. The

:39:13.:39:18.

focus this man has his incredible. He hasn't been fazed by anything in

:39:18.:39:27.

this Olympic competition. Often, these races are close and

:39:27.:39:31.

settled by inches. That was a handsome victory. That is what it

:39:31.:39:37.

means to become Olympic champion. Some work in the west Country they

:39:37.:39:47.
:39:47.:39:48.

are celebrating raucously -- somewhere. What a performance from

:39:48.:39:55.

I am so happy. And, the moment you crossed the line? Relief, it sounds

:41:25.:41:35.
:41:35.:41:37.

stupid. Not a nation. Relief, that I could do it in front of the home

crowd -- not elation. You have put a lot of things on hold. But in

:41:43.:41:49.

front of a home crowd, it is worth it. It is brilliant. I woke up at

going to get those presence in a minute. To all those people

Ed McKeever, a four-mile world champion, he has just delivered

:42:53.:42:54.

great Britain's first gold medal of lead pretty much the whole way

:42:54.:43:04.

through. Crossing the line and taking Great Britain up to 26 gold

:43:04.:43:14.

medals. What a fantastic start to the day. Rishi Persad.

:43:14.:43:19.

There is no doubt in his mind he was ready for today. And the way he

:43:19.:43:26.

performed, if his nickname is the Ice man. He has delivered his

:43:26.:43:30.

sensational performance. If you were supporting Ed McKeever,

:43:30.:43:39.

watching from the start, you would He never relinquished that

:43:39.:43:43.

advantage. This new distance introduced to the Olympics, it has

:43:43.:43:51.

been perfect for Ed McKeever. He was very good at 500, at 200, he is

:43:51.:43:59.

simply the best. He was in control, he never looked overwhelmed by the

:43:59.:44:04.

expectation. 200 metres is about controlling

:44:04.:44:11.

that explosive power which is what he did. He got a great start and

:44:11.:44:16.

maintained his advantage. He is such a strong athlete. Heat is so

:44:16.:44:21.

intense, a combination of physical and mental ability. It all came

:44:21.:44:29.

together. When this canoe sprint started on Monday, all of the focus

:44:29.:44:37.

was on today. He has delivered. Two more chances, and hopefully they

:44:38.:44:45.

will take inspiration from what Hopefully they will be leading the

:44:45.:44:50.

pack and they will be boosted after seeing Ed McKeever. Fantastic for

:44:50.:44:57.

the crowd at Eton Dorney. When will we see those races? Jess Walker is

:44:57.:45:03.

at 10:21am. It is her second a Olympics, she was at Beijing aged

:45:03.:45:09.

18. She has outside chances of a medal, but with the inspiration of

:45:09.:45:19.

Ed McKeever, she can scrape into the medal spots. The Russians

:45:19.:45:24.

looked very good, and they beat the British pair can decently yesterday.

:45:24.:45:29.

But they feel if they have a better start than yesterday, they can claw

:45:29.:45:34.

back some of the advantage. Anything can happen. It has been a

:45:34.:45:39.

fantastic start to the day. Ed McKeever has delivered the first

:45:39.:45:43.

gold medal for Great Britain of the day. He is now the Olympic champion

:45:43.:45:47.

in the 200-metre kayak singles. in the 200-metre kayak singles.

:45:47.:45:51.

There he was just after he crossed the line. Thanks to him, this is

:45:51.:45:57.

what the medal table looks like. Great Britain in third place with

:45:57.:46:07.
:46:07.:46:13.

I imagine the Royal Mail will be starting work on the Ed McKeever

:46:13.:46:18.

stamps. There are plenty more opportunities for gold medals this

:46:18.:46:25.

weekend. It was a great day in the boxing ring at the ExCel.

COMMENTATOR: Luke Campbell, 20 seconds away from an Olympic final.

:46:37.:46:41.

His defence has been rock-solid all the way through, and he is going to

:46:51.:46:52.

win this. 10 seconds to go. Last couple of seconds. Olympic final

:46:52.:46:59.

for Luke Campbell. Without a single, shadow of a doubt. There is more to

:46:59.:47:09.
:47:09.:47:24.

He won the last round, 9-5! COMMENTATOR: Right hook would be

the order of the day. And he has to come back with the right hook. Fred,

competitive bout of the highest order. A great uppercut by Joshua.

He is proving impossible to discourage. He is finishing in a

:48:55.:49:02.

strong fashion in these closing seconds. This is Anthony Joshua's

round. He has won this round, he has won the contest, he has got to

and over the moon. I cannot believe what I had achieved. Every we go,

:50:43.:50:46.

people want an autograph and a photograph taken with you, it must

:50:46.:50:52.

be lovely? Yes, it is strange, I am used to being able to walk down the

:50:52.:50:58.

road and nobody pays any any mind. Now people want autographs, and

:50:58.:51:03.

photographs and it is such a nice thing to be recognised. A lot of

:51:03.:51:07.

people talk about you having a constant smile and you are so down-

to-earth. I am just a goal from leads and I am achieving my dreams.

Good morning. And Good morning. star treatment continues. Good

:51:31.:51:38.

morning. Welcome to the Savoy Hotel, what do you think? It is amazing.

:51:38.:51:43.

Can you imagine staying here? would be amazing, I have never been

in a place like this before. would be OK if this was your front

room? Yes and the piano as well. You can eat what they the ones that

:51:54.:51:58.

now. I don't know about that will start be don't have to worry about

:51:58.:52:05.

the weight. White did you want to be a boxer? Watching the greats at

:52:05.:52:12.

home, I thought I would love to be able to do that one day. -- why did

:52:12.:52:16.

you want to be a boxer. My mum took me to the boxing gym

:52:16.:52:21.

and I was only 12 years old. And that was it. You came to the

:52:21.:52:27.

Olympics, what was your hopes? was hoping for the gold medal.

:52:27.:52:31.

Everybody thought I would be able to get the gold even before I did.

:52:31.:52:38.

I started to believe in myself. I did it. When you boxed in the final

:52:38.:52:42.

you up against an opponent who had beaten you a couple of times. What

:52:42.:52:47.

were you thinking when you went into the ring? Just stay relaxed,

:52:47.:52:51.

feel the atmosphere with the crowd and use it to your advantage. I was

:52:51.:52:56.

thinking, this is my time in London. It had to be gold for me, it had to

:52:56.:53:05.

be. You knock her down in the second round? That was fantastic, I

:53:05.:53:10.

could not believe it. I wasn't expecting it to happen. When it did,

:53:10.:53:18.

I was like, "yes"!, I have got this one. What we are thinking in the

:53:18.:53:24.

closing seconds? I was thinking, don't be stupid just keep a close

:53:24.:53:34.
:53:34.:53:36.

guard. Nicola Adams has just made history. I was so overwhelmed. I

:53:36.:53:43.

remember hearing the crowd cheering. I was tapping my chest with the GB

:53:43.:53:47.

sign, and I was thinking I have done this for the country, and for

:53:47.:53:52.

Yorkshire. You will now be known as Nicola Adams, Olympic boxing

:53:52.:53:59.

champion. How good is that, my dream has come true.

:53:59.:54:04.

Not just Nicola Adams, Olympic boxing champion, but someone who

:54:04.:54:08.

has it place in Olympic history because her gold medal was the

:54:08.:54:16.

first ever awarded to women boxers. We have already had a fantastic

:54:16.:54:20.

moment for Great Britain this morning at Eton Dorney, because we

:54:20.:54:26.

have finals in the canoe sprint. Ed McKeever's gold came in the kayak

:54:26.:54:33.

singles. Now it is time for the canoe single final. We can show you

:54:33.:54:43.
:54:43.:55:03.

roar of the crowd. De Ayala going well. Yuri Cheban is out strong. He

:55:03.:55:13.
:55:13.:55:24.

is half-a-length a. Yuri Cheban is finishing strongly. Yuri Cheban

:55:24.:55:30.

from the Ukraine takes it. Jevgenij Shuklin still coming through for

:55:30.:55:37.

the bronze. But Yuri Cheban wins it for the Ukraine. Didn't he control

:55:37.:55:44.

that race? He left everybody else waiting to catch him. He took it

:55:44.:55:50.

out there from the very beginning. It is all about getting a fast

:55:50.:55:57.

start, getting the boat at running smoothly. He has a long stroke but

:55:57.:56:00.

he maintained his rhythm and pace and kept gliding through the wall

:56:00.:56:05.

tough. Almost a bit like he was a tiring up towards the end but he

:56:05.:56:11.

knew he was almost there. The times are so low. He was very quick

:56:11.:56:16.

yesterday. He was the quickest in the semi-finals. Jevgenij Shuklin

:56:17.:56:25.

coming through to take the silver. Just ahead of Ivan Shtyl' from

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

We will be back at Eton Dorney in a few minutes because we still have

:56:35.:56:39.

two more finals. It will feature Jess Walker of Great Britain. We

:56:39.:56:45.

will be looking at that race. Time down to her to the aquatic centre

:56:45.:56:49.

because Tom Daley is back in action. This is the semi-finals of the ten-

:56:49.:56:56.

metre platform diving. Let's join Leon Taylor. How is it going to

:56:56.:57:01.

work for Tom Daley this morning, do you think? The crowds are filling

:57:01.:57:07.

up behind me, watching that divers completing their warm-up. Tom Daley

:57:07.:57:11.

has just been announced to the audience. It is an extraordinary

:57:11.:57:18.

atmosphere, the warm ups are done, it is time to make the next six

:57:18.:57:24.

dives count, the noise is incredible. Obviously, he will have

the level of support, because it you were telling me it slightly

:57:31.:57:37.

unnerved him yesterday? Yes, he looked a bit shaky when he started.

:57:37.:57:42.

I am hoping he can take it in his stride, as a we are so accustomed

:57:42.:57:50.

to seeing him do. He has six dives to do. He needs to be in the top 12

:57:50.:57:55.

to go through to the final. He needs to smile and enjoy it, and

:57:55.:58:02.

set this place on fire. Six dives, does every divert do the same six,

:58:02.:58:07.

or can they choose the best? They have to cover six different groups

:58:07.:58:16.

of dives, forward, backward, in woods, reverse, way you stand

:58:16.:58:22.

forward and spin back. Twisting, and also the on stand, were you

:58:22.:58:27.

balance on the end of the board. They can choose the order, so it is

:58:27.:58:33.

often a game of tactics. When do you do your best dive, when do you

:58:33.:58:39.

do your weakest dive? We will be with you in the aquatic centre.

:58:39.:58:46.

This is the moment of reckoning for Tom Daley. He only scraped into the

:58:46.:58:51.

semi-final in 15th place and only 18 made it through. And only 12

:58:51.:58:55.

will go through to the final. We heard earlier how he had drawn a

:58:56.:59:01.

picture of himself competing at London 2012. Nine years on, that

:59:01.:59:07.

dream is a reality. Or will there be a happy ending?

:59:07.:59:13.

# He is here again. # The man with the child in his

:59:46.:59:51.

is a big moment for the divers. reduced them to 18. Sadly we have

:59:51.:59:54.

lost Peter Waterfield from the original line-up. We have lost a

:59:54.:59:59.

lot of big names along the way. We nearly lost Tom Daley. He got into

:59:59.:00:03.

7th place and then faltered. We are looking for a bigger programme from

:00:03.:00:07.

home this morning. Matthew Mitcham is in the middle of the pack with

:00:07.:00:12.

an outstanding performance last night. The two Chinese and do not

:00:12.:00:20.

discount the two Germans. Martin Wolfram was great. Liam Taylor

:00:20.:00:23.

joins me now. There were some consistent dives, some consistent

:00:24.:00:30.

ones. Bobby Ball we did not expect, as well. -- from people we did not

:00:30.:00:38.

expect. The Mexicans, for example. Absolutely. The Mexicans were

:00:38.:00:48.
:00:48.:00:49.

running hot. And then some people were faltering. Of course it starts

:00:49.:00:59.

an zero, a new day, and all six dive scout. Yue -- or six dieds

:01:02.:01:12.
:01:12.:01:26.

Andy, his coach. Can we have a few words with him? He knows what he is

:01:26.:01:31.

doing. He has been here before. It is time to make it count. World

:01:31.:01:36.

Champion in 2009, lest we forget. European champion this year once

:01:36.:01:41.

again. We know that he is in decent form. We did not really see it last

:01:41.:01:48.

night. We will mark the card as we go again, the dives as they

:01:48.:01:55.

correspond to last night. Dive number five was really his undoing.

:01:55.:02:01.

We will be looking for that later in the programme. We will see each

:02:01.:02:09.

dive in reverse order. 18 goes first and first goes 18th. There

:02:09.:02:12.

will be some big-name casualties going into the final, almost

:02:12.:02:21.

certainly. Matthew Mitcham not quite on his game, the champion.

:02:21.:02:26.

David Boudia only just snuck into the semi-final and he will be first

:02:26.:02:29.

up. If the Mexicans get their programme together, they have a

:02:29.:02:33.

difficult the effort of 4.1. David Boudia is starting with a high

:02:33.:02:42.

tariff himself, through 0.6. His opening gambit in the semi-final. -

:02:42.:02:52.
:02:52.:03:12.

- 3.6. Arms stand back double Very confident. Very confident to

:03:12.:03:16.

start with the arm stand. Divers can do the dive in any order, but

:03:16.:03:21.

they all have to do a hand stand, an inward, reverse and a twist. We

:03:21.:03:27.

will explain those as we go along. This is incredibly difficult, 3.6.

:03:27.:03:31.

David Boudia has opened his campaign with a high scoring dive

:03:31.:03:39.

and that will be in the high eighties. 88.20. He nearly did not

:03:39.:03:43.

come back today but he is right out there. It is above what we are

:03:43.:03:50.

expecting from others because they have lower tariff dives. Like Jose

:03:50.:03:56.

Antonio Guerra. The oldest by six years. That was lovely. He was the

:03:56.:03:59.

comeback King yesterday. His second dive in the preliminaries nearly

:03:59.:04:04.

failed. He managed to pull it all together and scrape back through in

:04:04.:04:12.

17th. He will be looking to up his game today. He did some marvellous

:04:12.:04:15.

dives but then that glaring error meant it was nearly all over. A

:04:15.:04:25.
:04:25.:04:28.

wealth of experience. The 33. -- 33 years of age. Many of you know the

:04:28.:04:31.

scoring system by now, but for the converts to diving, of which there

:04:31.:04:40.

have been many, we will explain it. Gleb Galperin of Russia. Not quite

:04:40.:04:46.

as good as yesterday's opening. He is over vertical as he enters the

:04:46.:04:51.

water. The judging works like this. Seven Execution judges mark it out

:04:51.:04:56.

of a maximum of 10. The two highest and two lowest are discounted to

:04:56.:05:02.

make an average. The total is multiplied by the degree of

:05:02.:05:08.

difficulty, 3.2 in this case. That gives the total of 81.6. Easy when

:05:08.:05:16.

you know how! The crowd expected, the crowd wanting Tom Daley to open

:05:16.:05:26.
:05:26.:05:34.

up more impressively than he did same, the back two-and-a-half

:05:34.:05:44.
:05:44.:05:44.

somersault with pike. Well, it is not a sensational start that we

:05:44.:05:48.

were hoping for. He is marginally short of vertical but it is a step

:05:48.:05:52.

up from last night. He might get over 80. But it depends how mean

:05:52.:05:57.

that judges are feeling. Two-and-a- half twists, just finishing low in

:05:57.:06:02.

the water. Much more like it from Tom. There is more in the tank but

:06:02.:06:07.

that was a steady start. He over rotated in the brilliance. He is

:06:07.:06:12.

playing it safe in the semi-final. -- he over rotated in the

:06:12.:06:16.

preliminaries. They are fighting against gravity. They go into the

:06:16.:06:26.
:06:26.:06:27.

shower to keep warm. Yes, more than 80. 81. 7.5 will count towards the

:06:27.:06:37.
:06:37.:07:13.

year. He thought about that. You could really hear a pin drop. He

:07:13.:07:18.

did the very good job with it. A good dive in his preliminaries, but

:07:19.:07:25.

faltering in two out of six. That is a very good start, 3.2

:07:25.:07:31.

difficulty. It is why he wants to be. They are bunching up already.

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

The 81.6, just ahead of Tom Daley but behind David Boudia. Now the

:07:42.:07:47.

Colombian, Ortega Serna. We nearly wrote him off but he came back with

:07:47.:07:52.

a flourish in the preliminaries. Two-and-a-half somersault, 1.5

:07:52.:07:58.

twists, 3.2. That is a low degree of difficulty. It is the twist dive

:07:58.:08:07.

and all drivers must perform one in this group. -- divers. 3.2 and it

:08:07.:08:14.

needed to be good. Unfortunately, he let it over rotate. He stayed in

:08:14.:08:18.

the pike too long. Too much splash because of the over rotation. That

:08:18.:08:28.
:08:28.:08:33.

puts him bottom of the pack six dives own. -- in. 68.8. You cannot

:08:33.:08:40.

afford to be off your game. 18 will be reduced to 12. Some have done

:08:40.:08:45.

very well to get here in the first place. But the Kohl will take place

:08:46.:08:55.
:08:56.:09:05.

in an hour-and-a-half. Anton are starting very confidently. They

:09:05.:09:09.

are opening with the lower the degree of difficulty. The head is

:09:09.:09:13.

close to the diving board sometimes. It is not dangerously close but I

:09:14.:09:18.

would not want to see them any closer. The judges do not get to

:09:18.:09:23.

see the replay, just to remind you. Yes, a little bit too close for

:09:23.:09:27.

comfort. There is a fine line between jumping too far away and

:09:27.:09:30.

not making the dive and of course staying too close to the diving

:09:30.:09:36.

board. We get the benefit of three lovely replace. The judges see it

in real time only. -- three lovely He is 21. Very low on difficulty,

the end of the diving board, just wet towel does provide some more

:11:04.:11:12.

grip. The judges have their watchful eye. They input their

:11:12.:11:17.

scores instantly. The crowd will see it just before you, so you can

:11:27.:11:30.

hear them shouting and groaning. The defending champion from Beijing,

:11:31.:11:34.

the three-and-a-half somersault with pike. That is more like it. He

:11:34.:11:38.

looked a little bit fatigued in the preliminaries. He was not quite as

:11:38.:11:45.

sharp. That was better. He is quite tall for a diver which makes it

:11:45.:11:50.

more challenging. He has a low degree of difficulty in comparison

:11:50.:11:56.

:13:43.:13:47.

has always been thereabouts over the past couple of years but at the

:13:47.:13:51.

grand old age of 18 he seems to be ready coming into his own. He is

:13:51.:14:01.

one to watch. We did not know which was the youngest competitor, but

:14:01.:14:04.

with two born on the same day we will have to find out what time

:14:04.:14:09.

they were born. Oleksandr Bondar has got a decent opening score, as

:14:09.:14:19.
:14:19.:14:20.

most of them have been so far. Born on 26th October. Garcia Navarro of

Mexico is going for a Ripper. nice indeed! Such confidence for

:14:33.:14:38.

this magnitude of dive. We will see lots of the boys performing this

this morning. It is so important that you control the dive. Garcia

doing a fantastic job. He seems to make it so easily. Just a touch

:14:51.:14:55.

over but he will get a lot of eights. He will go into the lead

:14:55.:15:00.

for sure. The highest mark so far. Not totally happy because he would

:15:10.:15:41.

like nine but he gets 8s. He has with this dive. You cannot see

:15:41.:15:45.

through to the final. Starting at zero, like everyone, having to

build it all back up again. marks are OK. As always, we get a

:18:07.:18:17.
:18:17.:18:35.

This is Lin Yue. Take-off was superb, just faltering slightly in

:18:35.:18:45.
:18:45.:18:50.

difficulty, but he builds and builds through the programme, the

:18:50.:18:56.

same as his team-mate, coming next. We saw him getting 101 of his dives

:18:56.:19:01.

yesterday, but not this time. -- getting 100 points in one of his

:19:01.:19:11.
:19:11.:19:33.

yesterday. Not expected to in this water. Stamping his authority on

:19:33.:19:38.

the semi-final. Makes a dive so easily, kicking out, feet pointing

:19:38.:19:48.
:19:48.:20:13.

to the ceiling, and drills into the diving on the red button. Tom Daley

:20:13.:20:18.

is in 9th position. He will be doing his second dive in a moment,

:20:18.:20:22.

and we will be back at the Aquatics Centre. But at the moment, they are

:20:22.:20:27.

lining up for the next final at Eton Dorney. Jess Walker is in this

:20:27.:20:37.
:20:37.:21:11.

paddles. They about so quickly, and to get there quicker start? -- who

:21:11.:21:21.
:21:21.:21:50.

she going to hold on? She gets the gold medal! It looked as if the

:21:50.:21:53.

silver medal for the Ukraine, but no doubt about it, Lisa Carrington

:21:53.:21:58.

has won the gold medal for New Zealand. She came through a bit

:21:58.:22:02.

later than I would have had expected her to. She picked up the

:22:02.:22:12.

pace and the 200 -- the 100m. She held on from there to the finish.

:22:12.:22:15.

We are getting confirmation coming through that Lisa Carrington has

:22:15.:22:25.
:22:25.:22:41.

won. And the bronze medal goes to Hungary. Natasa Janics-Douchev also

:22:41.:22:50.

performed well. Lisa Carrington confirmed it from 50m. Natasa

:22:50.:22:59.

Janics-Douchev almost getting through for the silver medal.

:22:59.:23:02.

was an explosive start. We did not see a Lisa Carrington featuring

:23:02.:23:12.

straight away until the later part. And her face as she crosses the

:23:12.:23:16.

line and realises she has just become the Olympic champion!

:23:16.:23:20.

Confirmation as well, Jess Walker finished in 7th position, but she

:23:20.:23:25.

did very well to reach the final, which was won by a Lisa Carrington,

:23:25.:23:34.

A great result for New Zealand, that was their 5th gold medal of

:23:34.:23:39.

the Olympic Games. Thank you to Lisa Carrington. In the Aquatics

Centre, here is Tom Daley who is about to do the second of the six

:23:43.:23:53.
:23:53.:24:13.

something to shout about! There is his mum, she knows it is good. That

:24:14.:24:18.

is much more like it. This is what we are here to see. Well done, Tom

:24:18.:24:26.

Daley. Beautiful entry into the water. There are still more to come,

but that is much more like it. being, into second place. A good

:24:48.:24:53.

start from Tom Daley. His best dives came in the next couple of

rounds last night. This is Victor to cram into four-and-a-half

:25:07.:25:17.

but he kept the splashdown. The judges will give favourable marks

:26:58.:27:05.

on this. It is a huge dive. This is the one at Tom Daley faltered on,

:28:08.:28:13.

dive was straight up-and-down. It is a 3.6 degree of difficulty.

see the splash being thrown up. That will reflect in the score.

Quite a differential there. Six marks up to eight marks. He is

finding himself slipping down. Matthew Mitcham, the Olympic

champion from four years ago. He has not been in that form recently,

and too cowed most of last year. -- from Tom Daley. He is stepping up a

gear. Just drifting away from the diving board a little bit too far.

opted for one and a half. -- some at so many dropped dive today may

:31:44.:31:54.
:31:54.:31:55.

well exclude them from continuing in the competition. -- is so any

:31:55.:32:03.

dropped dive. I have no idea how he manages to control that dive so

:32:03.:32:11.

well. He launches himself. He should enter the long jump! He just

:32:11.:32:20.

about manages to control it. Maybe a seven for that. He has come away

:32:20.:32:24.

relatively unscathed but it could have been much worse. You would

:32:24.:32:33.

expect that from a springboard not a platform. 77 total score because

:32:33.:32:37.

of a high degree of difficulty but Marks will be deducted from the

:32:37.:32:47.
:32:47.:33:03.

fact he nearly landed in the precise from the Mexican once again.

:33:03.:33:08.

The Mexicans are really coming in to challenge the supremacy of some

:33:09.:33:15.

of the top diving nations. Exciting young divers. Just so exciting to

:33:15.:33:19.

watch. Over the past couple of years they have been doing these

:33:19.:33:23.

big dives but they have been here and there without impacting on the

:33:23.:33:27.

standings but now they are mixing it up with the very best. Fantastic

:33:27.:33:33.

from Sanchez. They have a very high tariff programme which can go

:33:33.:33:37.

terribly wrong. It can be a remarkably right when it is on its

:33:37.:33:47.
:33:47.:34:07.

pair of them used in the synchronised event. 3.8. It is so

:34:07.:34:11.

complicated. The triple twist. Then you have got to get yourself into

:34:11.:34:15.

the pike shape and get into the water. He does it so well. Because

:34:16.:34:21.

of the degree of difficulty, that will go well over 85 points. That

:34:21.:34:25.

will keep him well up in the business end of the field. I have

:34:25.:34:32.

not seen many 90s so far but here comes one. Not a high is that he is

:34:32.:34:35.

going to go to. There will be a 4.1 from both of them I didn't before

:34:35.:34:44.

we finish and if they come off, they are absolutely spectacular. --

:34:44.:34:54.
:34:54.:35:03.

from both of the Mexicans before we technically proficient from Germany.

:35:03.:35:08.

Giving himself plenty of time to come out of the dive. He points his

:35:08.:35:12.

toes up towards the ten-metre and has plenty of time to look at the

:35:12.:35:16.

entry. The spray is disturbing the water so the driver can see exactly

:35:16.:35:26.
:35:26.:35:30.

where they want to go. German efficiency? German efficiency, OK.

:35:30.:35:33.

Martin Wolfram is trying to motivate himself by clapping and

:35:33.:35:43.
:35:43.:35:50.

Sascha Klein. We were wondering if any of the wheels would come off

:35:50.:35:54.

for the divers that are performing exceptionally well in the

:35:54.:35:58.

preliminaries, but this was decisive. High risk, the high

:35:58.:36:04.

degree of difficulty, and he has got it all going on. That is two

:36:04.:36:08.

out of two for Sascha Klein. It is bunching up in the business end of

:36:08.:36:18.
:36:18.:36:19.

the field. More of an inclined than a decline for Sascha Klein. We are

:36:19.:36:24.

registering some more 90s now. They can still improve. We can improve

:36:24.:36:34.
:36:34.:36:37.

upon it tonight, probably. That was just spot on. A little bit of

:36:37.:36:42.

splash yesterday but none there this time. He jumps away from the

:36:42.:36:46.

diving board a safe distance and squeezes into the top shape. He

:36:46.:36:51.

just disappears into the water. Just his sheikh let him down,

:36:51.:37:01.
:37:01.:37:39.

flattering his feet. -- his shape off was good. He entered the war to

:37:39.:37:47.

keeping the body tension, -- the water. A little bit early, a little

:37:47.:37:52.

bit flash. He needed to hang on a little bit. He was giving the

:37:52.:37:56.

impression that it was easier than it was. When Qiu Bo makes an error

:37:56.:38:00.

it is only slight and he will still get it to for points. Is that right

:38:00.:38:10.
:38:10.:38:12.

for that dive? -- gets 85 points. Yes. We expect efficiency and total

:38:12.:38:15.

accuracy from the Chinese and that was just a little bit off which is

:38:15.:38:20.

why they are not in the top three. Martin Wolfram. Who would have put

:38:20.:38:24.

money on him leading after round to? He has been so precise in

:38:24.:38:34.
:38:34.:38:54.

everything he has done in the first chance of making the top 12 apart

:38:54.:38:58.

from Gleb Galperin. Round three of six in the men's ten-metre platform

:38:58.:39:06.

semi-final. Tom Daley, time to get going in the preliminary is a

:39:06.:39:15.

little bit. He is currently 9th with 18 divers. Some big tariffs

:39:15.:39:21.

still to come. Tom Daley's biggest dive still to come. David Boudia

:39:22.:39:29.

will open round three, the American, in 6th place at the moment. This

:39:29.:39:34.

dive has become the staple diet of divers at this level, the forward

:39:34.:39:44.
:39:44.:39:55.

so difficult. The governing body of diving rejigged the degrees of

:39:55.:40:00.

difficulty to make this even more valuable. It used to be 3.5 and it

:40:00.:40:05.

is now 3.7. It was just too tempting for the divers to resist.

:40:05.:40:09.

It is high risk. It can all go wrong, but not for David Boudia

:40:10.:40:15.

today. Sailing over 90 points to 94.35. The beady different from

:40:15.:40:23.

last night. -- completely different. You can see why he has so many gold

:40:23.:40:33.
:40:33.:40:48.

top, 3.2 difficulty. He has come out all guns blazing this morning,

:40:48.:40:54.

with another fantastic dive. Technically spot on. The pike is

:40:54.:41:01.

just a touch short of vertical for a 10 but he should get nines. He

:41:01.:41:06.

continues with the successful campaign so far. Three out of three

:41:06.:41:11.

for Jose Antonio Guerra. Getting nines is not too far away and he

:41:11.:41:17.

has gone up to second. The 2007 World Champion is having his

:41:17.:41:22.

problems. He started so well last night and faltered. He is faltering

:41:22.:41:31.

early on, Gleb Galperin. It is a very good dive, but as we have been

:41:31.:41:35.

discussing, 3.0 does leave you off the pace, especially if the other

:41:35.:41:41.

divers perform before four-and-a- half, which is 3.7. His arms Stand

:41:41.:41:48.

went drastically wrong and he has got a lot of work to do. That will

:41:48.:41:58.
:41:58.:41:58.

not move him off the bottom spot. 72 is solid but semi-finals of this

:41:58.:42:08.
:42:08.:42:40.

Daley! Just a little bit loose as he entered the water but he did

:42:40.:42:46.

keep the splashdown. The all- important entry into the water. His

:42:46.:42:52.

mother is watching on nervously. Tom moving away from the diving

:42:52.:43:01.

board. He just sneaks it in, good enough for 80 points. This is the

:43:01.:43:08.

super slow-motion, squeezing in. Just entering the water. Trying to

:43:08.:43:12.

keep the splashdown and he does a great job. Well done, that man.

:43:12.:43:22.

Three out of three in a semi-final for Tom Daley. He goes into second

:43:22.:43:32.
:43:32.:43:55.

top, 3.2 difficulty. It is good. Thinking about it a lot seems to

:43:55.:44:00.

work for him. Some divers go much quicker. He stands there for what

:44:00.:44:06.

seems to be an eternity. Entering the water just marginally short of

:44:06.:44:10.

vertical. Clean but not as good as Tom Daley. He will be middle of the

:44:10.:44:20.
:44:20.:44:20.

pack but good enough to make it through to the all-important top 12.

:44:21.:44:27.

79.2, below Tom Daley with a succession of eight.

:44:27.:44:31.

STUDIO: Tom Daley has done a third of the six dives that he will do.

:44:31.:44:36.

We will go back in 10 minutes' time with every single one of his dives

on BBC One. But it has been a golden start at Eton Dorney this

:44:40.:44:45.

morning in the canoe sprint. Ed McKeever ended up winning his race,

:44:45.:44:50.

which makes in the Olympic champion in the 200m kayak singles. A

:44:50.:45:00.
:45:00.:45:12.

fantastic victory for Ed McKeever. champion, world champion, and has

:45:12.:45:16.

won a World Cup events, but he now has the Olympic title and the gold

:45:16.:45:24.

medal around his neck. And that focused face we have seen all week

:45:24.:45:34.
:45:34.:45:35.

now breaks into a brilliant big smile. He dominated the field since

:45:35.:45:45.
:45:45.:45:45.

2010, but slipped back a little in 2012, but he has found himself a in

# Long to reign over us. He smiles broadly. The Olympic

champion in the men's 200m kayak That was Britain's 26th gold medal

of the Games. That is how the day began at Eton Dorney. It is where

:46:59.:47:09.
:47:09.:47:21.

The 200-metre races coming up now. We have yet to have a really close

:47:21.:47:31.
:47:31.:47:41.

race here, and 200m were close in the heats. Piatrushenka and Makhneu

:47:41.:47:47.

are ones to watch. Under French beer, world champions for the past

through for Russia. They are powering away. No one is going to

:48:24.:48:34.
:48:34.:48:35.

catch them here. Heath and Schofield has all are just hanging

:48:35.:48:44.

on to silver. Boss to die and dieting go have dominated the heats,

:48:44.:48:54.

:48:54.:48:59.

Bella is get the silver and Great Britain get the bronze medal.

:48:59.:49:03.

There have dominated the heats, semi-finals, and I said they had

:49:03.:49:07.

more to give, and they have just demonstrated that. They just blew

:49:07.:49:12.

away the field. Fantastic champions. What a fantastic result for Great

:49:12.:49:16.

Britain, the bronze medal. paddle of Jonnie Schofield has

:49:16.:49:24.

given up the ghost. They take the bronze medal. And Russia, my

:49:24.:49:34.
:49:34.:49:41.

goodness me, they were in PVS. -- imperious. A bronze medal for Heath

:49:41.:49:49.

and Schofield is a great achievement. They could not have

:49:49.:49:54.

expected much more than that. executed the start really well, but

:49:54.:50:00.

here is the Russian pair, they worked so well and did not give

:50:00.:50:10.
:50:10.:50:11.

anything away. They dominated it and make sure that title was theirs.

:50:11.:50:16.

They have dominated the World Cup events, and won two out of the

:50:16.:50:24.

first three. Here, working in unison, having a look across, and

:50:25.:50:33.

celebrations begin across the line. The Olympic champions, Postrigay

:50:33.:50:42.

and Dyachenko. I think we half- expected it. Especially during the

:50:42.:50:46.

early stages here at Eton Dorney. But they did not leave anything to

:50:46.:50:50.

chance. The Brits got out really strong within, but then they pulled

:50:50.:51:00.
:51:00.:51:13.

away. This is confirmation of the Schofield and Liam Heath, they have

:51:13.:51:18.

always been on the podium. They got together in 2010, and have had

:51:18.:51:24.

enormous success together. European titles, world champions, World Cups,

:51:24.:51:29.

they have been brilliant. Liam Heath is due to get married a

:51:29.:51:38.

couple of weeks, and he proposed to his fiancee with a pot of ice-

:51:38.:51:43.

cream! Hopefully he can do more for her now. The Russians were

:51:43.:51:48.

outstanding. But Liam Heath and Jon Schofield can hold their heads up

:51:48.:51:54.

high. They both live in Maidenhead, near by, so this would have been a

:51:54.:51:58.

special moment to compete for their country on the water here at Eton

:51:58.:52:07.

Dorney. They have done They attended the same university,

:52:07.:52:14.

and did lots of stuff together. they have rarely shown that when we

:52:14.:52:18.

have watched them. Fantastic team work. You get a sense of the close

:52:18.:52:25.

relationship. Their bronze medal takes us to 59 medals altogether.

:52:25.:52:29.

Fantastic the way they did that, given how strong the Russian gold-

:52:29.:52:33.

medallists were. Yes, the Russians were brilliant yesterday, they were

:52:33.:52:39.

so good in the heats and semi- finals. When I spoke to them

:52:39.:52:46.

yesterday, I asked them how to claw it back, and they said the only way

:52:46.:52:49.

they could was to make a good start. They made a good start but the

:52:49.:52:54.

Russians were immense from the start. They were so good and

:52:54.:52:58.

extended their advantage. Normally when you make a good start it leads

:52:58.:53:01.

you vulnerable in the closing stages, but they were so strong at

:53:01.:53:11.
:53:11.:53:13.

the end, that was very impressive. Hats off to Liam and John. -- Jon.

:53:13.:53:17.

This was a new distance for London 2012. How did it go down? We are

:53:17.:53:22.

very happy with it! Bronze medal for them, and Jessica Walker

:53:22.:53:27.

getting to the final earlier. Altogether it has gone down pretty

:53:27.:53:32.

well for us. For the sport, it has gone down well because the 200-

:53:32.:53:39.

metre races are so much more exciting, they provide excitement,

:53:39.:53:44.

and it has proved very popular down here at Eton Dorney. They are just

:53:44.:53:50.

about to make their way here, and we saw John looking worse for wear

:53:50.:53:56.

after that. Here they come now. We're going to have a word with

:53:57.:54:02.

them. Tremendous. A very good performance, we knew that the

:54:02.:54:05.

Russians were going to be tough, but you gave it everything and we

:54:05.:54:11.

are all proud of what you have done. That was a really long race. Their

:54:11.:54:15.

head wind like that, that adds a few seconds on which does not sound

:54:15.:54:21.

much, but when you are going at that pace, it drags out. I am so

:54:21.:54:31.

pleased. This is the golden couple of canoeing, Jon Schofield and

:54:31.:54:41.
:54:41.:54:43.

Rachel Cawthorn. A lovely moment for Rachel to be here. Let us get

:54:43.:54:49.

your reaction to that performance today. We knew how much that two

:54:49.:54:54.

out of you. Yes, that was a long race. I did not think we would make

:54:54.:54:58.

it to the end. The last day has been horrible, we were not happy

:54:58.:55:03.

with the heat and we were worried coming into this. But Liam Heath

:55:04.:55:08.

goes quiet, thinks, and comes out with the right reaction. That start

:55:08.:55:14.

was amazing, and we held it. Major, how proud Are You of them? I am so

:55:14.:55:20.

proud of them. I have been living with Liam for the last year, and

:55:21.:55:23.

every single day they have been the most professional athletes you

:55:23.:55:28.

could find anywhere, working on every single little thing to get as

:55:29.:55:33.

fast as they could. I was so nervous watching, but it was great.

:55:33.:55:37.

I am going to let you go, but that was a tremendous performance. You

:55:37.:55:45.

always win medals, well done! What a boost for the canoe sprint

:55:45.:55:49.

team. The day started with the gold medal for red meat cleaver in the

:55:49.:55:56.

single event, then the bronze medal in the Kayak Double event. This is

:55:56.:56:00.

the final day of the competition, and we had four finals all over the

:56:00.:56:06.

shorter and new Olympic distance of 200m. It is all happening in the

:56:06.:56:09.

Aquatics Centre, Tom Daley and all the divers are in the middle of the

:56:09.:56:19.
:56:19.:56:30.

six dives that they have to do in in their performance. Now, the two

:56:30.:56:40.
:56:40.:56:51.

push 100 points. This is near on perfect. He is marginally short of

:56:51.:56:55.

vertical, but that is the only thing wrong. Will he get over 100

:56:56.:57:05.

points? What a dive! What have the judges seen, remember they do not

:57:05.:57:10.

get the benefit of replays from different angles, they only see it

:57:10.:57:20.

in real time. There is one score of 10 points. That will not count.

:57:20.:57:25.

That is putting pressure on his Chinese team mate. This is chi ball,

:57:26.:57:35.
:57:36.:57:51.

reversed the 1/2 somersaults. -- change out of 9.5s on that. Use

:57:51.:57:54.

just tipping over from vertigo, which is the only thing wrong. --

:57:54.:58:04.
:58:04.:58:43.

night, but his third today. There is not a huge gap between the top

:58:43.:58:53.
:58:53.:59:00.

German Sanchez has a 4.1 difficulty still to come, and there is Tom

:59:00.:59:05.

Daley going through his preparations. Change of judges at

:59:05.:59:15.
:59:15.:59:29.

judges go off, and the second group of judges come on. This is David

:59:29.:59:39.
:59:39.:59:44.

in the preliminaries, silver medal at the Shanghai World Championships.

:59:44.:59:50.

Reverse jumping away from the diving board, straight up and down

:59:50.:59:55.

into the water. Mid-80s for him. Very consistent this morning. That

:59:55.:00:00.

will keep him in the Top End, behind the two Chinese. I wondered

:00:00.:00:04.

where he was last night, because we expected him to do what he did in

:00:05.:00:14.
:00:15.:00:48.

Those in the crowd will do. The very well. Just leaving the dive

:00:48.:00:51.

and little bit short but the entry have no splash. That is very

:00:51.:00:55.

difficult. You have to be courageous and a bit crazy to do it.

:00:55.:00:59.

You have got to cut through in between your hands and the platform

:01:00.:01:06.

and spin around three times, holding on. He needed to wait a

:01:06.:01:15.

little bit longer in the shape but he will get 8s. This is a serious

:01:15.:01:19.

question. What will they have had for breakfast? The Olympic Village

:01:19.:01:22.

offers all sorts but they will have had to have something like, I

:01:22.:01:31.

expect, because you do not do that on a full English! A uncomfortable!

:01:31.:01:35.

It was a serious question because I do not know what divers have one

:01:35.:01:45.

there is only a 12 hour turnaround. Gleb Galperin will be getting

:01:45.:01:48.

cheering from his team-mates because that was spot on but he has

:01:48.:01:52.

left too much to do because you faltered on his second dive. You

:01:52.:01:56.

cannot make a big mistake like he did, even though that really gets

:01:56.:02:02.

90 points. It is not good enough to drop one as drastically as he did

:02:02.:02:12.
:02:12.:02:39.

in round two. 89.1 should cheer him low on the water but he played the

:02:39.:02:45.

waiting game. He pops out, stays tight in his body and gets it. It

:02:45.:02:50.

was good last night and even better today. He has been consistent. This

:02:50.:02:56.

will get over 85 points as well. A high degree of difficulty. Four out

:02:56.:03:01.

of four for Tom Daley. He needs to squeeze into the top shape making

:03:01.:03:06.

himself as small as possible to complete all the rotations. He does

:03:06.:03:13.

well to hold on tight. Plenty of fans in here will be delighted to

:03:13.:03:23.
:03:23.:03:27.

behind David Boudia. That is much more like it. We were concerned

:03:28.:03:37.
:03:38.:04:03.

bit. Steady balance in the armstand. Twitching in the toes to get ready.

:04:03.:04:11.

Two-and-a-half twists, his pike is too fierce and over he goes. It

:04:11.:04:19.

will keep him in contention because of the degree of difficulty. I

:04:19.:04:29.
:04:29.:04:31.

think he will scrape into the 80s. You judges, new pairs of eyes. 81.0.

:04:31.:04:41.
:04:41.:04:54.

truck. Very good but low on the degree of difficulty. His next two

:04:54.:04:59.

will be relatively low which will leave him off the pace. The

:04:59.:05:03.

execution is very good but it will not move him up the field. Great

:05:03.:05:08.

that he has made it through. One of the surprises for me to see in the

:05:08.:05:18.
:05:18.:05:28.

semi-final, especially so high up. those that have will probably get

:05:28.:05:38.
:05:38.:05:48.

indeed, Anton Zakharov. Sometimes he shows inconsistency. Today he is

:05:48.:05:55.

solid. Four out of four will put in their or thereabouts. Behind Tom

:05:55.:06:05.
:06:05.:06:07.

Daley, probably. -- put him there or thereabouts. 84 point 15, yes,

:06:07.:06:17.
:06:17.:06:18.

just behind Tom Daley by four marks. This man is flirting with exclusion

:06:18.:06:28.
:06:28.:06:38.

and inclusion depending on how this with 3.3 difficulty. -- triple

:06:38.:06:42.

somersault. Superb from Riley McCormick just when he needed it.

:06:42.:06:49.

He is in contention but just outside in 13th with the top 12

:06:49.:06:52.

making it through. This was decisive. Just tipping over a

:06:52.:06:58.

little bit as he goes in. It depends how much the judges

:06:58.:07:05.

penalised him for over rotating. Looking to get into the 80s.

:07:05.:07:15.

Blowing the cheeks and no smile. Not totally happy. Body language

:07:15.:07:25.
:07:25.:07:48.

indicates he is agonising about half twists. Very precise. He has

:07:48.:07:53.

left themselves too much to do, back down in 16th. The writ entry,

:07:53.:08:01.

splash of the century. It sounds like you are tearing the Water Park.

:08:01.:08:11.
:08:11.:08:13.

Rolling very -- tearing the water apart. Rawling very quickly. Very

:08:13.:08:23.
:08:23.:08:35.

good dive nonetheless. He has middle board and the big board, but

:08:35.:08:42.

he is not bored judging by his face! The former Olympic champion,

:08:42.:08:52.
:08:52.:08:52.

Matthew Mitcham. Wonderful dive. He is just starting to turn it on.

:08:52.:08:58.

Write about the time he needs it as well. He was 11th after three

:08:58.:09:03.

rounds as well. He is showing is the motion, which not many do.

:09:03.:09:12.

Beautiful dive from the Olympic champion. He is gradually cranking

:09:12.:09:22.
:09:22.:09:34.

emotion. Unusual for divers to celebrate in between dives. He got

:09:34.:09:44.
:09:44.:09:59.

110 but it does not count towards Matthew Mitcham and this is exactly

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

the same dive. He has just scored 9.5, and Nicholas McCrory is not

:10:10.:10:14.

quite as good. Over rotation and more splash, but still holding it

:10:14.:10:19.

together under the pressure. Fighting fiercely for a spot in the

:10:19.:10:27.

final. This is a tough competition. 89.1. That is one mark and a half

:10:27.:10:31.

less than Matthew Mitcham, which could be very important at the end

:10:31.:10:34.

of things when we tot up the standings at the end of round six.

:10:34.:10:44.
:10:44.:11:01.

Shanghai. Sneaky! I thought he was going to over rotate because he

:11:01.:11:08.

stayed in the top shape very long. He managed to fix it. He jiggles

:11:08.:11:14.

about in such a way that he plonks it right on his head. 90. For this

:11:14.:11:24.
:11:24.:11:28.

young man as well. And nobody giving anything away. It to 9.10,

:11:28.:11:38.
:11:38.:11:39.

that button getting worn out by the judges. -- 89.10. The Mexicans do

:11:39.:11:49.
:11:49.:12:21.

not even think about the 3.1 and This will be in the 80s as well. He

:12:21.:12:30.

held the armstand for quite a long time. Up into the double twist.

:12:30.:12:33.

Double somersault, two-and-a-half twist, just tipping over past

:12:33.:12:39.

vertical, so he will be penalised. 7 and a half from the judges but a

:12:39.:12:44.

high degree of difficulty. Over 80 is just fine for why he needs to

:12:44.:12:54.
:12:54.:12:57.

qualify. -- for where he needs. That is his weakest dive so far.

:12:57.:13:04.

4.1 time everybody! Don't put the kettle on. In with 4 and a half

:13:04.:13:14.
:13:14.:13:36.

somersaults. I find it incredible when he went into the water but he

:13:37.:13:46.
:13:47.:13:47.

completes the dive. Such ease. Four! Just letting his feet go when

:13:47.:13:53.

he gets in so the judges will penalise for the big splash but he

:13:53.:14:02.

will sail over 80 points because it is 4.1 degree of difficulty. His

:14:02.:14:06.

coach is conferring for what he needs to do next time. But will he

:14:06.:14:15.

get another next time? He is 11th now. High gambling stakes. It is

:14:15.:14:25.
:14:25.:14:31.

nowhere near as big as he would pike for Martin Wolfram. He has

:14:31.:14:36.

nailed another one. Very consistent last night. Faltering marginally on

:14:36.:14:42.

his third round dive but this one much better. This is a dive that

:14:42.:14:50.

Tom Daley was faltering on last night. Martin Wolfram is very much

:14:50.:14:54.

in contention. Sanchez made a mistake on his third round dive

:14:54.:15:02.

which is why he has points to make- up. 86.4, so no concerns for Martin

:15:02.:15:12.
:15:12.:15:29.

who he looks up to a lot. Sascha since the preliminary. Six out of

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

six, and that has four out of four, in this morning's semi-final. Just

:15:40.:15:44.

over 90 points when you do it like that. Fantastic diving from Sascha

:15:44.:15:54.
:15:54.:16:15.

Klein. He will be a medal contender place, but not for much longer.

:16:15.:16:22.

had a 100 dive in the previous round, and another spot on dive. He

:16:22.:16:32.
:16:32.:16:48.

tuck the shape. This is a little bit split. But it is a good dive.

:16:48.:16:58.

So difficult to keep up. He is not happy with the marks. He is being

:16:58.:17:08.
:17:08.:17:29.

harsh on himself. That is pretty times. But the time I see him in

:17:29.:17:36.

training, he is so consistent. -- every time I see him. China will be

:17:36.:17:46.
:17:46.:18:03.

first and second at the end of this standings? Chain Bar first and

:18:03.:18:11.

second, as you might expect. David Boudia, then Sascha Klein them, --

:18:11.:18:21.
:18:21.:18:39.

Sascha Klein, M Martin Wolfram, Tom little bit of room, but everyone

:18:39.:18:43.

else from Sascha Klein all the way down, eight points separates him

:18:43.:18:49.

all the way down to Matthew Mitcham. Looking for a good finish in the

:18:49.:18:53.

semi-final to get a good order to dive win in the final. They dives

:18:53.:19:03.
:19:03.:19:28.

day. He was faltering and the prelims, so he is the first diver

:19:28.:19:33.

in the semi-final. He has another 3.6 difficulty to come, but this

:19:33.:19:37.

was the riskiest. He has done a good job. He will get over 80

:19:37.:19:42.

points. Just tipping over as he goes, keeps the splashdown, but not

:19:43.:19:49.

quite. That is the lowest mark he has got today, which is pretty

:19:49.:19:59.
:19:59.:20:15.

impressive. There is a smile on the with tuck. -- 3.5 somersaults.

:20:15.:20:25.
:20:25.:20:30.

is very good. Hardly any splash. goes into the water. -- short of

:20:30.:20:38.

vertical. That could prove critical for him, because he is in the fight

:20:38.:20:45.

for the minor places in the final, and that is not going to help.

:20:45.:20:53.

Mark is not bad, but if you get less than 8.5, you are on the brink

:20:53.:21:03.
:21:03.:21:07.

of exclusion, and it is probably Galperin. But he has left himself a

:21:07.:21:15.

lot to do. This is going to get 90 points. You can see how far off the

:21:15.:21:22.

pace years from where you should be. No one is faltering enough for him

:21:22.:21:26.

to climb back up the field. Appreciation for that dive, it is

:21:26.:21:36.
:21:36.:22:14.

gone to their feet, and so they should be. That is the dive of the

:22:15.:22:19.

competition so far for this young man. Finally finding his form. This

:22:19.:22:23.

is the kind of promise he has been showing for four months coming into

:22:23.:22:31.

these Games, and when he needed it, he goes over 90 points. You can

:22:31.:22:41.
:22:41.:22:45.

relax in Plymouth. Job almost done. This is Victor Minibaev. 12th place

:22:46.:22:55.
:22:56.:23:19.

time before he starts his dives. It seems to work for him. I used to

:23:19.:23:25.

get tired if I stood there for too long, wanting to crack on. But

:23:25.:23:31.

Victor Minibaev did a good job, it was the same dive as Tom Daley, but

:23:31.:23:36.

he was marginally over. You can start to compare and contrast. And

:23:36.:23:46.
:23:46.:24:08.

asked how the degree of difficulty is calculated. If you do a back to

:24:08.:24:12.

the 0.5 somersault, in a tuck position, it carries a 3.3

:24:12.:24:16.

difficulty, but in the paper position it carries a 3.6 degree of

:24:16.:24:26.
:24:26.:24:27.

difficulty. It is more difficult in the paper position, -- pike

:24:27.:24:37.

position. A differential of 10 points between him, Tom Daley and

:24:37.:24:43.

Victor Minibaev. That is the penalty he will have to pay for not

:24:43.:24:53.
:24:53.:24:56.

going for a higher tariff. This is a back trouble somersault. That was

:24:56.:25:01.

tricky. He has his head in his hands. You cannot make a mistake

:25:01.:25:05.

like that and then make it through. He was on fire. You have to flick

:25:05.:25:12.

towards the tower with your feet, and this is the risk that you take.

:25:12.:25:16.

It is easy to mess up these difficulties. That is what he has

:25:16.:25:22.

done. We're looking for her mid-80s, but he has got 36. He has lost 50

:25:22.:25:28.

points on that. That will allow a Riley McCormick, provided he backs

:25:28.:25:38.
:25:38.:25:50.

it up with added dive of his own, very neat and tidy, but marginally

:25:50.:25:54.

short as he goes in. He will have been looking for an entry without

:25:54.:26:04.
:26:04.:26:07.

splash. That is going to get him eights. It is coming out to the

:26:07.:26:11.

final dive, as it often does in these contests. The boys have all

:26:11.:26:15.

woken up and are starting to dive at the best of their abilities.

:26:15.:26:20.

Much more pleasant to commentate on. With standards like this, you

:26:20.:26:30.
:26:30.:26:38.

Anton Zakharov has gone below them. -- he will move up a place. You

:26:38.:26:48.
:26:48.:26:49.

include a weary, three-and-a-half somersault. -- Jeinkel Aguirre.

:26:49.:26:53.

had great preliminaries, but he is being outclassed. This is where you

:26:53.:26:57.

stand for words, jumbo away from the diving board, it is so

:26:57.:27:06.

difficult. You can only see where you have been. He came out too

:27:06.:27:16.
:27:16.:27:22.

and that will be it in terms of his competition. Matthew Mitcham has

:27:22.:27:25.

made his way up the standings, but he was in danger of not making it

:27:25.:27:35.
:27:35.:27:51.

through. He has given himself a see him in 8th position after the

:27:51.:28:01.
:28:01.:28:05.

4th round. He has thrown up to much splash. A massive impact, 35 mph.

:28:05.:28:13.

He rotated a little bit slowly, did not quite get the correct entries.

:28:13.:28:23.
:28:23.:28:36.

McCrory is too close for comfort, however, in terms of progression.

:28:36.:28:46.
:28:46.:29:07.

McCrory absolutely nails his back spot on. I think it was worth a

:29:07.:29:17.
:29:17.:29:31.

little bit more than that. But them do not count, then the rest

:29:31.:29:41.
:29:41.:29:42.

are added together under multiplied he has stepped up and delivered

:29:42.:29:48.

when he needed to. Right on the cusp of qualification. He just

:29:48.:29:58.
:29:58.:30:00.

watched his team-mate Mika hotch potch of his dive. One more good

:30:00.:30:04.

dive away from a place in the Olympic final. I thought you said

:30:04.:30:14.
:30:14.:30:26.

hot port for a moment! -- hot pot! Jose Garcia, also -- Ivan Garcia,

:30:26.:30:36.
:30:36.:31:06.

with tuck. Well, he has had four good dives in the 80s but that one

:31:06.:31:12.

might not. Just over rotating as he goes into the water. The take-off

:31:12.:31:22.
:31:22.:31:22.

is good. Yes, that is the worst dive we have seen from Garcia. With

:31:22.:31:26.

some good ones being mobbed by his competitors, that could move in

:31:26.:31:36.
:31:36.:31:55.

down the standings. -- move him did for him. This needs to be good.

:31:55.:32:05.
:32:05.:32:14.

watched his team mate make a mess of this exact same dive. That is a

:32:14.:32:19.

bit harsh. He faltered. Sanchez has got some work to do. His third

:32:19.:32:24.

round dive only scored 36 and he has left himself way off the pace.

:32:24.:32:28.

He needs to be close to 90 and if it is, he is getting the combat

:32:28.:32:38.
:32:38.:32:40.

going. He is in 10th place at the moment. With the Chinese to come,

:32:40.:32:50.
:32:50.:33:13.

easily, if anything too easily, over rotating as he went in. The

:33:13.:33:17.

two-and-a-half twists, into the two-and-a-half somersault. It is

:33:17.:33:20.

all good and he tucks his chin and let it go over slightly into the

:33:20.:33:25.

water. Because of the degree of difficulty that will get mid- 80s.

:33:25.:33:29.

His campaign to get into the Olympic final at the age of 20 is

:33:29.:33:36.

very much alive. Just one dive to go. One more of a similar standard

:33:36.:33:46.
:33:46.:33:50.

and he will be in his first Olympic experienced German. Reverse the and

:33:50.:33:59.

a half somersaults. Faltering. and a half somersaults. His coaches

:33:59.:34:07.

clapping but it is polite rather than rapturous. The war to smacking

:34:07.:34:15.

him on the back of his legs. -- the water. That will be mid-70s, moving

:34:15.:34:25.
:34:25.:34:29.

him down from where he once was. Bunching up even more now. He is in

:34:29.:34:39.
:34:39.:34:54.

4th place. Two points ahead of the standings so far. You do not

:34:54.:35:01.

expect to see that form. Almost emptying the pool. Top bombing.

:35:01.:35:05.

That is not what we expect from this young man. He has been

:35:05.:35:11.

exemplary until now. He missed his hands as he went in. They slipped

:35:11.:35:15.

apart. That feels like somebody smashing a baseball bat on the top

:35:15.:35:18.

of your head. He will be dizzy after that and he will be dizzy

:35:18.:35:23.

when he sees the scoreboard. If you get the chance, he will put it

:35:23.:35:33.
:35:33.:35:48.

right tonight. He is just ahead of from Qiu Bo this morning or last

:35:48.:35:57.

night but it is good enough. It is an error, but only slight from this

:35:57.:36:02.

consistent young man. He will still get over 90 points. When you make

:36:02.:36:08.

an error and still go over 90, it is still very good indeed. He stays

:36:08.:36:18.

so tight and he gets that clean entry. It is handy being World

:36:18.:36:24.

Champion, that is all I say! little generous to Qiu Bo, shall we

:36:24.:36:32.

say? That is the highest Tom Daley has been in a preliminary is or the

:36:32.:36:42.

semi-final. Up to 4th place. -- in the preliminaries. Look at that

:36:42.:36:49.

scrap for 12th place. Matthew Mitcham just in, Nicholas McCrory

:36:49.:36:57.

Justine. It is mighty tight. Tom Daley has only got as many marks in

:36:57.:37:05.

this competition now as he got last night. 448.45 last night. 432 with

:37:05.:37:10.

one to go. That shows how under par he was last night. He was certainly

:37:10.:37:13.

feeling it last night and it is nice to see him relaxed and

:37:13.:37:20.

enjoying his diving and enjoying the occasion and shining. He will

:37:20.:37:30.

be forced up in the final round. -- 4th up. There is a reasonable gap

:37:30.:37:40.
:37:40.:37:49.

between him and those scrapping for semi-final. Perfectly good this

:37:49.:37:56.

morning. He is opening up the semi- final. His last dive to get the

:37:57.:38:02.

spot last night, he certainly earned it with a great performance.

:38:02.:38:05.

He will smash the 500 barrier, as are many of the athletes this

:38:05.:38:11.

morning. The boys really coming out tonight in the final. Will they

:38:11.:38:21.

hold this or will be step it up a gear again? -- will they? David

:38:21.:38:26.

Boudia is the first with 531. will see many of them going over

:38:26.:38:36.
:38:36.:39:02.

12th and he knows how close it is for the final. This is 3.6. Lots of

:39:02.:39:11.

them will use it to finish. It is big. If he gets 90 points, it will

:39:11.:39:18.

make him difficult to nudge out of the final. After a disastrous

:39:18.:39:21.

preliminary, Jose Antonio Reyes wearer was lucky to make it through.

:39:21.:39:31.
:39:31.:39:32.

I think you have done enough. should be enough. He broke 500 as

:39:32.:39:42.
:39:42.:39:55.

That second dive was really botched. He left himself way too much to do.

:39:55.:40:04.

That two-and-a-half twist, 3.6, it is good to finish. Not good enough

:40:04.:40:14.
:40:14.:40:25.

to get through to the top 12 for Aquatics Centre. They are trying to

:40:25.:40:35.
:40:35.:40:44.

Yes, Tom Daley is through! No question about that. Make no

:40:44.:40:48.

mistake. Tom has responded in exactly the way he needed to. He

:40:48.:40:53.

went to bed last night thinking, my goodness, what is it like? Now we

:40:54.:40:57.

has responded. He is going to smash the 500 barrier and he will

:40:57.:41:01.

definitely be in the top five, putting him in the business end of

:41:01.:41:06.

the field. The divers will dive in the reverse order. Consistent from

:41:06.:41:16.
:41:16.:41:18.

Tom Daley. 89 to finish. compared to 440 in the

:41:18.:41:23.

preliminaries. Still 40 shy of the total that he got in the European

:41:23.:41:29.

Championship earlier this year when he was the gold medallist. Through

:41:29.:41:39.
:41:39.:41:52.

to the final is all we needed. Well two-and-a-half twists. A great dive

:41:52.:41:59.

to finish. Tom Daley opted to use a 3.3 in the final round. He opened

:41:59.:42:03.

the programme with this dive. This is the best thing we have seen from

:42:03.:42:10.

Victor Minibaev. He absolutely spank it. 90 plus on this.

:42:10.:42:14.

Certainly a safe passage into the final. We have four members of the

:42:14.:42:18.

500 club already and there are still plenty to come. What a

:42:18.:42:28.
:42:28.:42:45.

strongly. He is going to be towards the bottom of the 18. He has just

:42:45.:42:55.
:42:55.:42:57.

been out last today. -- outclassed. The big guns have been firing and

:42:57.:43:00.

Victor does not have the ability to keep up. He has done remarkably

:43:00.:43:05.

well to keep up to this stage in the competition. He finishes with a

:43:05.:43:09.

big smile and a big thumbs-up, happy to be in the semi-final at

:43:09.:43:17.

the Olympics. And why wouldn't you be? 439 his final mark. Anton

:43:17.:43:27.
:43:27.:43:31.

Zakharov was there and he seems to have thrown it away. That was good

poor fifth-round dive. He only scored 36. If you think that this

:43:42.:43:47.

will get nearly 90 points, just marginally over as he goes in, but

:43:47.:43:53.

spot on. He will have an agonising wait to watch the rest of the

:43:53.:44:00.

contest unfold to see if he scrapes through. 91.8. He has done pretty

:44:00.:44:05.

much all he could to get in. We have on our computer screen the

:44:05.:44:09.

marks. We get a little mark beside the names of the people that have

:44:09.:44:13.

definitely qualified and there is only one name on their so far,

:44:23.:44:40.

place to be. It was now or never and it was now! Magnificent! Just

:44:40.:44:46.

when he needed it. He has been dancing around from 10th to 14th

:44:46.:44:49.

and this will be good enough to make it through to the final.

:44:49.:44:57.

Superb. He is going to get way over 90 points. When the pressure is on,

:44:57.:45:04.

and you really needed it, he dug into his toy box and found that.

Daley and Victor Minibaev have all performed four years ago to snatch

the Olympic medal. He was 11 of after the 5th round, and we have

:47:21.:47:31.
:47:31.:47:36.

seen some good performance in this round. Matthew Mitcham could have

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 47 seconds

thrown it all away on the final dive. -- 11th. There is a high

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

price on this final dive for the Ukrainian diver. I am not sure who

:48:50.:48:55.

that is, actually it is Matthew Mitcham, he knows he has not done

:48:55.:49:00.

enough to get through. Helicopter legs flicking around about the

:49:00.:49:10.

place. I think that will be good enough to get through. He is OK. He

:49:10.:49:17.

is OK with that 79.2. Not a particularly high mark, but it is

:49:17.:49:27.
:49:27.:49:36.

finance efficient. -- that is fine, has let him run over a little bit.

:49:36.:49:41.

There is so much to do in this dive, you have to get a lot of for

:49:41.:49:49.

momentum in order to get through the twists. He let it run over a

gets close to 80, that will be Matthew Mitcham for that place.

:50:40.:50:44.

Matthew Mitcham faltered. This young man started off with 85, then

:50:45.:50:53.

91, then he blew out with a 36, but responded well. This is going to

:50:53.:50:58.

get more than 85, but will it be enough? Has he left himself too

:50:58.:51:02.

much to do? This is going to be close. No wonder Matthew Mitcham

:51:02.:51:06.

had his head in his hands. There will only be five points separating

:51:06.:51:16.
:51:16.:51:17.

them. The judges say 88.8. He is five points behind, but Riley

:51:17.:51:27.
:51:27.:51:38.

McCormick has qualified. That means but he nails it. Just marginally

:51:38.:51:42.

short. Very impressed with this young man, the younger of the

:51:42.:51:52.
:51:52.:51:57.

German divers. More than 85 points to finish, into the 500 club. Very

:51:57.:52:07.
:52:07.:52:12.

impressive. Better than the Tufty Club! Martin Wolfram has gone into

:52:12.:52:20.

third position. Riley McCormick has made it through, German Sanchez is

:52:20.:52:30.
:52:30.:52:36.

not there yet. Matthew Mitcham is end. But he has done enough. He has

:52:36.:52:45.

moved down to the middle of the pack. That is not as sharp as

:52:45.:52:50.

yesterday, waiting at over rotate. He is just about going to scribble

:52:50.:53:00.
:53:00.:53:16.

better tonight, but he has gone over 500. This is the penultimate

:53:16.:53:20.

diver in the semi-final. It is a battle between the Chinese as to

:53:20.:53:30.
:53:30.:53:31.

who will emerge the top dog. who will emerge the top dog.

:53:31.:53:41.

entry into the water. He will finish above David Boudia and Tom

:53:50.:54:00.
:54:00.:54:14.

leads Tom Daley by 10. That is going to change after this.

:54:14.:54:17.

Providing nothing untoward happens here, Matthew Mitcham is not

:54:27.:54:56.

doubt. Matthew Mitcham, the met 90s. A great dive to finish.

:54:56.:55:00.

563, which is pretty much what Tom Daley did at the European

:55:00.:55:10.
:55:10.:55:14.

Championships. He wins the semi- not be able to defend his title

:55:14.:55:20.

tonight because he does not return. Matthew Mitcham is in 13th place,

:55:20.:55:26.

missing out by one spot. Missing out in the end by 13 points. These

:55:26.:55:36.
:55:36.:55:36.

are the ones returning. Tom Daley performed much better than last

:55:36.:55:45.

night. Two Germans there, and the ecstasy and the agony on one page.

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

Up to 12 are happy, after 12 are last position, but it is Tom Daley

:55:59.:56:04.

who will return pushing for the medals in the final, and the

:56:04.:56:14.
:56:14.:56:14.

They certainly are. What a fantastic morning in the Aquatics

:56:14.:56:20.

Centre. Tom Daley is comfortably through to the final tonight. He is

:56:20.:56:24.

with Nick hope now. Congratulations. Much better than

:56:24.:56:34.
:56:34.:56:35.

last night. Yes, it was a lot qualified for the final, so I have

:56:35.:56:42.

completely turned around my performance, as did David Boudia.

:56:42.:56:48.

We turned around a long it. In the prelims yesterday, was there any

:56:48.:56:55.

effect from the synchronised? You got so close to a medal there.

:56:55.:56:59.

it feels weird going into another competition knowing the

:56:59.:57:03.

disappointment been so close yet so far away. Going into the individual,

:57:03.:57:09.

I wanted to prove a point, give it my best shot. It was difficult, but

:57:09.:57:13.

I am happy that I made the semi- finals and now the final. Anything

:57:13.:57:19.

can happen tonight. 521 is a good score, but you are capable of 565,

:57:19.:57:25.

which she got in Europe. Can you recapture that? I am getting

:57:25.:57:29.

sharper and sharper, and it is hard to compete in a pre-let and semi-

:57:29.:57:32.

final when it does not count to the medals, but you need to do enough

:57:32.:57:36.

to qualify. That is the toughest part done, so now have done that I

:57:36.:57:46.
:57:46.:57:59.

am going to give it my best shot MUSIC: "The Man With The Child In

Well done, Tom Daley. He is in the final which is at 8:30pm. Here is

the medal table because there have been two medals this morning for
