fantastic memories to look back on. It is final score in a week. Cannot

:00:05.:00:09.

wait! Modern pentathlon provides the last

:00:09.:00:13.

gold medal of the Games, that is coming up. Mhairi Spence and

:00:13.:00:21.

Samantha Murray are aiming to win for Great Britain.

:00:21.:00:26.

That will be coming up shortly. We will have the action live. Clare

:00:26.:00:30.

Balding is at Greenwich for the combined event.

:00:30.:00:36.

USA's dream team have been a fire in London and they aim to go out in

:00:36.:00:42.

glory against Spain in the men's basketball.

:00:42.:00:49.

Sweden and France go head-to-head in handball for men's gold.

:00:49.:00:53.

We will be live to the handball shortly, followed by the

:00:53.:01:03.
:01:03.:01:12.

On BBC Three you can watch the men's basketball live. It is

:01:12.:01:17.

tighter at the moment. Handball has been one of the big hits of these

:01:17.:01:22.

games. Today sees the final of the men's competition with Sweden

:01:22.:01:28.

taking on France. For the closing stages of the competition, the

:01:28.:01:34.

handball has moved from the Copper Box to be Basketball Arena. That is

:01:35.:01:41.

where we can watch the match live. Paul Bray is your commentator. It

:01:41.:01:51.
:01:51.:02:07.

off the foot. Sweden have possession. There is no change from

:02:07.:02:17.
:02:17.:02:19.

the referee. The ball is loose, he tries to throw it. Sweden are still

:02:19.:02:24.

on the attack, they trail by three. Really, it has been down to their

:02:24.:02:34.
:02:34.:02:52.

line player shoulder barges him. He was well positioned and used all

:02:52.:02:59.

his experience but he has paid the Price. There it is again. The

:02:59.:03:09.

shoulder was straight in under the chin. He was there too late. He

:03:09.:03:19.
:03:19.:03:21.

needed to move into the space. He is up and he plays on. He has

:03:21.:03:26.

scored 786 goals. Former world player of the Year - a huge

:03:26.:03:36.
:03:36.:03:38.

favourite. He went on his own. Fantastic player. A save. Right in

:03:38.:03:45.

front of goal. He has not had the best of championships. They paid

:03:45.:03:54.

the Price at the other end. He celebrates. He started it all with

:03:54.:04:01.

the great save off the line. He was allowed to go all the way through.

:04:01.:04:11.
:04:11.:04:13.

This time he slope to close the gap. -- he slowed. The defence

:04:13.:04:18.

specialist takes a breather was dug nearly passing to the line. He had

:04:19.:04:27.

to switch it back. It was nearly stolen. It was a French port. He

:04:27.:04:35.

deflected it out of play. They are looking a bit ragged. Sweden are

:04:35.:04:42.

defending really hard. It has been a low-scoring game. Again, Sweden

:04:42.:04:52.
:04:52.:04:53.

get the advantage. Eight saves. He looks up to the clock. Back incomes

:04:53.:05:03.
:05:03.:05:06.

Petersen. -- in comes. He went into his wing. He is being used as a

:05:06.:05:15.

wing at and a playmaker. It is deafening in the arena. -- a winner.

:05:15.:05:25.
:05:25.:05:40.

There will be moister on the ground. Save No. 8. -- moisture. That was

:05:41.:05:46.

not very well placed. Tilt it counts. 9.5 minutes played in the

:05:46.:05:56.

second half. -- still it counts. Again. If you give him the space,

:05:56.:06:04.

he will put it away. Now he has scored three in the second half. It

:06:04.:06:14.
:06:14.:06:27.

line. He has put one of his trademark shots into the back of

:06:28.:06:34.

the net. That was well defended. We are pass the ten-minute mark in the

:06:34.:06:44.
:06:44.:06:58.

The Swedish Royal Family approves. The king and queen are among the

:06:59.:07:08.
:07:09.:07:11.

spectators. That was a bullet of a shot - over 100 kilometres an hour.

:07:11.:07:19.

He failed with his single attempt so far. That passed to the line. A

:07:19.:07:29.
:07:29.:07:30.

free throw. -- that pass. In on the line again. Into the weighing. He

:07:30.:07:40.
:07:40.:07:43.

could not do anything with it. -- into the wing. He went in too hard.

:07:43.:07:52.

He has given the ball away will start -- the ball away. He put it

:07:52.:08:02.
:08:02.:08:04.

wide and not even on target. How could he missed it by so much? --

:08:05.:08:13.

missed it. 705 goals. It may well have clipped his shoulder. He has

:08:13.:08:18.

not been credited with a save but I do wonder. And cannot believe he

:08:18.:08:28.

put it quite so wide. Back come Sweden. He has a big shot. You need

:08:28.:08:38.
:08:38.:08:40.

to watch him. He was held up by the 35-year-old defender. There was

:08:40.:08:45.

criticism of his defending at the end of Euro 2012, when they failed

:08:45.:08:55.
:08:55.:08:56.

so miserably. They tried to put the ball to the line. It went out. He

:08:56.:09:06.
:09:06.:09:18.

16-13 to France. We're going to go back to the XL arena. Anthony

:09:18.:09:22.

Joshua was given the super- heavyweight gold on a countback.

:09:22.:09:28.

The Italians appealed. We have the results of that appeal. Let's get

:09:28.:09:36.

the results. Just a second ago, it feels like Joshua has won two got

:09:36.:09:41.

medals because the result has steered. Anthony Joshua is the

:09:41.:09:46.

super heavyweight Olympic champion. I think when they we scored it,

:09:46.:09:53.

they probably saw that Joshua won it on a wider margin. That was in

:09:53.:09:59.

the West's interests of the Italians. There was something funny

:09:59.:10:06.

about the scoring in the first two rants. The fact they went over it

:10:06.:10:10.

again, they probably said, there was a definite problem and it

:10:11.:10:20.
:10:21.:10:21.

should stand. So it should be. He won quite clearly. The second round

:10:21.:10:27.

I do not think he was three points down. In the last round he made up

:10:27.:10:33.

for it. He got the points comfortably. I'm sure he won by a

:10:33.:10:41.

wider margin. Quickly reflecting on what has been a terrific boxing

:10:41.:10:47.

contest. Anthony Ogogo picked up bronze. It has been incredible of.

:10:47.:10:52.

It has been very incredible - not only for the boxers but for the

:10:52.:10:56.

country and the next generation of boxes that will come up. The next

:10:57.:11:01.

generation of boxes, at seeing is in her home town and their home

:11:01.:11:07.

country, it will give them great inspiration. -- in their home town.

:11:07.:11:12.

Since 1908, we have not had four boxers in the finals. It is a

:11:12.:11:18.

brilliant achievement for British boxing. He is just about to pick up

:11:18.:11:24.

his gold medal of. This is a very special moment for him, isn't it?

:11:24.:11:30.

know he will feel very proud - a job well done. All this work was

:11:30.:11:36.

for gold. Or the hard work, he has been working hard. Sleeping early,

:11:36.:11:41.

not going out with friends. All those things. Big sacrifices was

:11:41.:11:48.

that it has paid up with the got Murdoch. Let's go to our commentary

Bronze medallist, representing The Azerbaijani was disappointed to

:12:36.:12:46.

be defeated in the semi-final, 13 points to 12 in the semi-final.

:12:46.:12:50.

Wonderful accomplishment for both of these men. Standing on the

:12:50.:12:57.

Olympic medal rostrum, receiving bronze medals in recognition. It

:12:57.:13:07.
:13:07.:13:24.

has been a wonderful tournament Silver medallist, representing

Italy, -- Roberto Camerelli. What an achievement exclamation that he

gets his third Olympic medal in this division. -- what an

:13:40.:13:48.

achievement! He has obtained a medal of each colour. A bronze from

Athens and gold from Beijing. medallist and Olympic champion -

representing Great Britain - Anthony Joshua! Anthony Joshua

pumps his best in celebration pulls but he acknowledges the crowd. They

:14:14.:14:20.

cheered him on to the hard fought victory. He has the Olympic gold

:14:21.:14:27.

medal placed around his neck. A proud moment for the 22-year-old

:14:27.:14:31.

from Finchley. He is the Olympic gold medallist in the super-

national anthem by a 10,000 strong crowd in London Docklands. Ladies

and gentlemen, the Olympic medallists. It is in recognition of

:15:48.:15:55.

the fact that Anthony judge-led, 22 years of age, is the Olympic

:15:55.:16:00.

champion. -- Anthony Joshua. What an achievement from this young man

:16:00.:16:06.

from Finchley in North London! Four years ago he did not know anything

:16:06.:16:13.

about boxing. He had no idea who James DeGale was. He did not watch

:16:13.:16:19.

his fellow Londoner stand atop the encrypt -- the Olympic rostrum in

:16:19.:16:24.

Beijing. After stepping into a wing for the first time four years ago,

:16:24.:16:30.

this magnificent all-round athletes ran 11 seconds for the 100m when he

:16:30.:16:37.

was a teenager. He went into boxing. With his intelligence, his

:16:37.:16:43.

incredible desire and his work ethic, Anthony Joshua has scaled

:16:43.:16:48.

the heights to big cat -- to be crowned the Olympic super-

:16:48.:16:53.

heavyweight champion. He has followed in the footsteps of such

:16:53.:16:57.

legendary names in the Olympic boxing ring like Lennox Lewis,

:16:58.:17:05.

Vladimir Klitschko. He emulates the accomplished ment of Audley

:17:05.:17:11.

Harrison from Sydney 12 years ago. When you consider that the super

:17:11.:17:17.

heavyweight division was not created until 1984, then the

:17:17.:17:25.

biggest men were often some of the brighter stars of the Olympic ring.

:17:25.:17:33.

That includes George Foreman and Smoking Jo Fraser. Anthony Joshua

:17:33.:17:39.

has just joined their rank as an Olympic title list. Anthony Joshua

:17:39.:17:44.

is the Olympic super-heavyweight champion at the Games of the 30th

:17:44.:17:54.
:17:54.:18:02.

Incredible scenes here as Anthony Joshua caps what has been the most

:18:02.:18:06.

memorable of Olympic Games with London 2012 proving a massive

:18:06.:18:10.

success. Anthony Joshua, despite the appeal from the Italian,

:18:10.:18:15.

getting his hands on that gold medal. It is a dream come true from

:18:15.:18:20.

the man who only took up boxing four years ago. The modern

:18:20.:18:25.

pentathlon is still to come later on. We could even add to our gold

:18:25.:18:31.

medal total of 29. We could talk about Anthony Joshua turning pro,

:18:31.:18:36.

that is for another day. Tonight belongs To Anthony Joshua, he is

:18:36.:18:42.

the Olympic gold champion here at London 2012.

:18:42.:18:52.

Thank you, to Manish Bhasin, Ron Waddell and -- which she would all

:18:52.:18:55.

and Ron Mackintosh. 90 no way it was the last time we came away with

:18:55.:19:05.
:19:05.:19:09.

so many gold medals -- 19 oh eight. We asked people why they eat it in

:19:09.:19:15.

the medals. A dish to show whether it is real gold. -- it is to show

:19:15.:19:20.

whether it is real gold. We can get back to the handball

:19:20.:19:30.
:19:30.:19:35.

final now. France have a slender receiving treatment after a heavy

:19:35.:19:45.
:19:45.:19:46.

fall. We have eight minutes or so remaining in the final. It is not a

:19:46.:19:52.

big lead. The defending champions, France, looking to become only the

:19:52.:19:57.

second team in the men's handball competition to retain their title

:19:57.:20:06.

after Russia did, albeit under a different title the second time.

:20:06.:20:16.
:20:16.:20:17.

Play resumes. Sweden have been defending superbly this game. That

:20:17.:20:21.

score will not count. The referee blew the whistle. He was under

:20:21.:20:26.

pressure being pushed away, making the restricting angle worse with

:20:26.:20:36.
:20:36.:20:57.

waited for the goalkeeper to jump and as the goalkeeper was dropping,

:20:57.:21:05.

he lobs it over the keeper. A team time-out is called by Sweden. They

:21:05.:21:15.
:21:15.:21:15.

have got back to be -- it back to within one, 15-16. But France have

:21:15.:21:20.

opened up the lead again. That was a fabulous goal. It is how long you

:21:20.:21:30.
:21:30.:21:52.

there. The Swedish coach is the motivator, the French one is a

:21:52.:22:02.
:22:02.:22:37.

the end to give them a three-goal lead as play resumes. The French

:22:37.:22:41.

goalkeeper was utterly brilliant in the match against Croatia, he made

:22:41.:22:51.
:22:51.:23:18.

19 saves. That was superb. French player was fouled on the

:23:18.:23:28.
:23:28.:23:38.

space and the number 7 player for Sweden was all over him until he

:23:38.:23:46.

knows he has got him on the floor. Kalman has to come out again. They

:23:46.:23:53.

will try and operate in behind him if they can. That was unlucky. He

:23:53.:24:03.
:24:03.:24:15.

inside the area. He took a step back as Petersen ran at him. He was

:24:15.:24:25.
:24:25.:24:28.

inside the area. Ekberg will take it. And he scores. With that goal,

:24:28.:24:38.
:24:38.:24:47.

Ekberg is once more top scorer with eight team that time-out is called

:24:47.:24:53.

by France. Both teams need time to marshal and to make some

:24:53.:24:59.

adjustments as we get into the critical phase of the game. They

:24:59.:25:05.

met in the group stages and France won on that occasion, 29-26. There

:25:05.:25:11.

was nothing in it. At half-time, the Swedes were leading and it

:25:11.:25:15.

looked good going into the second half. The crowds were able to exert

:25:15.:25:24.

pressure. It could go either way. Sweden have three times been built

:25:24.:25:32.

and -- beating in the final by Russia and Croatia. 12,000

:25:32.:25:35.

spectators are thoroughly enjoying this handball final here in the

:25:35.:25:45.
:25:45.:25:54.

remarkable. It is not all power either, as that shot shows, a

:25:54.:25:59.

little flick of the wrist to drop it over the shoulder of the keeper.

:25:59.:26:05.

Play resumes, five minutes and 40 seconds remaining in the final.

:26:05.:26:11.

France lead 20-18. Sweden have opted for a more aggressive defence

:26:11.:26:21.
:26:21.:26:24.

with Kallman at the front. That was a foul. The Swedish captain number

:26:24.:26:34.
:26:34.:27:02.

sparingly in this game. And it is a goal for France. It comes with a

:27:02.:27:10.

two minute suspension. He shoots and while he is in mid-air, get a

:27:10.:27:19.

push by Kalman and the No. 6 is off. He is unhappy. Five minutes

:27:19.:27:29.
:27:29.:27:37.

number 64 Sweden, is off. That was exactly what they needed from

:27:37.:27:44.

Andersson, the former captain of the Swedish team, who after being

:27:44.:27:54.
:27:54.:28:04.

injured for a while, gave up the club and we will wait to see where

:28:04.:28:14.
:28:14.:28:35.

should have been an attacking foul. There was not a big gap and it was

:28:35.:28:45.
:28:45.:28:59.

after a backlash. There was a gap. -- after that clash. A change of

:28:59.:29:04.

goalkeeper for Sweden, they bring in the veteran Mutai S Andersson.

:29:04.:29:11.

He is 34 years of age. -- Mattis Andersson. He has not saved any

:29:12.:29:14.

penalties so far in this competition, this would be a good

:29:15.:29:24.
:29:25.:30:00.

time to start. It is of the post. way now, they have to get organised.

:30:00.:30:10.
:30:10.:30:29.

The referee is warning they have to saved! It was an awkward one. He

:30:29.:30:33.

shot lower normally be goalkeeper needs to see the arm of the shooter

:30:33.:30:42.

to judge. That was an instinctive reaction. In handball, when the

:30:43.:30:47.

goalkeeper puts the ball out behind the back lane, it is a goalkeeper

:30:47.:30:57.
:30:57.:31:25.

at the clock. It tells him he does strength put Kallman back at the

:31:25.:31:35.
:31:35.:31:48.

front. It is a full frontal attack Into the last two minutes. Two

:31:48.:31:55.

goals in it. Will Sweden make it 4th time lucky in a final all will

:31:55.:32:03.

France keep their title? It is deafening. The French supporters

:32:03.:32:13.
:32:13.:32:37.

are chanting. Saved. A two minute final team time out. Time for

:32:37.:32:47.

Sweden to close the gap. There is not much time left. He would have

:32:47.:32:53.

got away with it if he had not pushed back player pulls dug he

:32:53.:33:00.

looks on bemused. The goalkeeper has saved 11 shots. -- pushed that

:33:00.:33:10.

player. At the other end, he has made 13 saves. Both teams are level

:33:10.:33:18.

pegging. The French scoring has gone some -- Dan sum up with its

:33:18.:33:24.

accuracy. -- gone down somewhat with its accuracy. France will have

:33:24.:33:31.

to defend as if their lives depend on it. Sweden has a three -- a free

:33:31.:33:36.

throw. They have the extra player now, right through to the end of

:33:36.:33:46.
:33:46.:33:53.

the game. Only one minute and 36 has been given as a throw-in to

:33:53.:34:03.
:34:03.:34:06.

Sweden. It is a penalty. They could get back within one. The crowd up

:34:06.:34:15.

on their feet. Let's have a look! Were they right? There is the shot.

:34:15.:34:21.

It should have been a French a throw-in. Sweden get a penalty on

:34:21.:34:29.

the back of this will stop they are still remonstrating with the

:34:29.:34:39.
:34:39.:34:59.

referees. -- at the back of this wane. -- put away. We were inside

:34:59.:35:09.
:35:09.:35:10.

the last minute. It could go into extra time if it is tired. He has

:35:10.:35:16.

scored. France are two up again. Sweden, who had a chance Cup may

:35:16.:35:26.
:35:26.:35:37.

have blown it. They need to get a remaining. He needs to get back in

:35:37.:35:41.

goal. Team time out to France. 12 seconds remaining for France to

:35:42.:35:47.

hang on. You might say it may be poetic justice after the ball was

:35:47.:35:52.

knocked out by a Swede and given as eight their win and they scored

:35:52.:35:58.

from the resulting penalty. They have defended superbly, Sweden,

:35:58.:36:04.

throughout this game. They could have been in trouble. As in the

:36:04.:36:12.

group game, they have really dug in. 12th turnovers for France. There

:36:12.:36:19.

had been a lot of mistakes in this game. It has not been a technical

:36:19.:36:24.

masterpiece but it has been high in intensity, strong defence and now a

:36:25.:36:28.

drama. The Swedish fans are desperately hoping they can steal

:36:28.:36:36.

the ball and take this match to extra time. These are snared -- be

:36:36.:36:40.

suspended player will only see action again if it goes to extra

:36:40.:36:49.

time. The Swedes will defend the forecourt. They have an extra

:36:49.:36:59.
:36:59.:37:06.

player. 12 seconds. One mistake time for France. He looks at the

:37:06.:37:13.

clock. They are going to do it. That is it. The buzzer has gone. He

:37:13.:37:21.

raises his hands aloft. France have defended their title. They are

:37:21.:37:25.

Olympic champions again. Sweden with the power play at the end

:37:25.:37:34.

could not capitalise. Almost ripping his shirt off. The joint

:37:34.:37:41.

top scorer in the competition, for him, that will mean nothing. They

:37:41.:37:51.
:37:51.:37:54.

had tasted defeat again in an Olympic final. They scored the

:37:54.:38:01.

crucial gulp and France hung on. Incredible scenes in the arena. The

:38:01.:38:08.

crowd is on its feet. It is deafening. French flags are waving

:38:08.:38:15.

and so are Swedish flags. A huge 18 -- achievement for a team not

:38:15.:38:23.

expected to have made it through. That is it. Bronze for Croatia.

:38:23.:38:29.

France have retained their title with a win over Sweden in the final.

:38:29.:38:39.
:38:39.:38:40.

Brilliant scenes. Congratulations to France. The narrowest of

:38:40.:38:45.

victories. The agony and the ecstasy of the Olympic Games. Let's

:38:45.:38:51.

catch up today's headline makers. Super-heavyweight boxer, Anthony

:38:51.:38:57.

judge-led, has clinched Great Britain's 29th gold Murdoch of the

:38:57.:39:06.

Games after an appeal was rejected. There was a silver for Fred Evans

:39:06.:39:12.

after a comprehensive defeat by the Keswicks star Any boxer in a

:39:12.:39:22.
:39:22.:39:26.

welterweight final. Uganda got their second ever gold medal ahead

:39:26.:39:31.

of the much fancied Kenyans in the marathon. Let's go back to the

:39:31.:39:39.

modern pentathlon. This is how the standings look. Great Britain's

:39:39.:39:49.
:39:49.:39:51.

women are keeping up with the place. -- the pace. Samantha Murray is in

:39:51.:40:01.
:40:01.:40:11.

Coronado's Son. She won the title in Rome in May. She is a 9th place

:40:11.:40:16.

in the competition. Let's see how she can get on over these fences in

:40:16.:40:26.
:40:26.:40:38.

strong horse. Just going forwards a bit. She is trying to get him back

:40:38.:40:45.

between the fences. She is an experienced rider. She has had a

:40:45.:40:53.

pony club and triathlon background. She is managing well. She is

:40:53.:40:57.

getting him balanced, getting him back together between the fences.

:40:57.:41:05.

That is what she needs to do. He is tending to rush his fences a bit.

:41:05.:41:15.
:41:15.:41:31.

trying to hold him - trying to keep him back and stop him rushing and

:41:31.:41:36.

flattering over the spent - is back and the fences. Now she will pick

:41:36.:41:44.

up time penalties as well. -- flattering over and the fences.

:41:44.:41:51.

That was disappointing. Not the easiest horse. You can hear Mhairi

:41:51.:41:59.

Spence. She is quite vocal as she goes around the course. 104 penalty

:42:00.:42:09.
:42:10.:42:10.

Mhairi Spence not having the best of France. Let's cross over to

:42:11.:42:16.

Claire Balding who is at Greenwich for us today and see if she has any

:42:16.:42:21.

idea whether or not Mhairi Spence has spoken after that or not.

:42:21.:42:24.

not get interviews with the athletes between the five

:42:24.:42:30.

disciplines. We have the combined run shoots still to come. That is

:42:30.:42:35.

really expensive. That will cost her about 26 seconds. The next

:42:35.:42:40.

competitor has just started. Samantha Murray is in third place.

:42:40.:42:46.

It is a little bit luck of the draw. Her horse was really big and really

:42:46.:42:51.

strong. It was written already in the afternoon. It came in with all

:42:51.:42:56.

these people who were fantastically respectful and tried to clap

:42:57.:43:02.

quietly. That never really works. Coronado's Son became a bit of a

:43:02.:43:08.

nightmare ride for her. She battled with it as best she could. 104

:43:08.:43:16.

penalty points and 26 seconds. The run shoot is a fantastic

:43:17.:43:21.

competition. The leader at the end of this riding phase will start out

:43:21.:43:31.
:43:31.:43:35.

first on the run shoot. It is 3000m Let's rejoin the competition. We

:43:35.:43:41.

are getting into the key contenders. It is amazing, watching a different

:43:41.:43:48.

level of riding abilities. Every time I think someone well jump

:43:48.:43:54.

clear, something goes terribly wrong. It is the difficult thing to

:43:54.:43:59.

get on an unfamiliar horse, ride it for 20 minutes beforehand, and

:43:59.:44:05.

tried to jump these fences without having too many fences down. It is

:44:05.:44:10.

really hard. You say they have 20 minutes beforehand to try to get

:44:10.:44:15.

used to the horse. What can they do? There are some jumps out of the

:44:15.:44:21.

back. They can only jump five of them before they come in here. That

:44:21.:44:27.

is pretty quick to be able to pop on and say, I love you, do you let

:44:27.:44:33.

me? It is a very hard thing. It tests off assets of an athlete with

:44:33.:44:37.

the fencing, the swimming, the riding and then the run shoot.

:44:38.:44:44.

Women have only been able to compete since 2000. Steph Cook won

:44:45.:44:50.

the first Olympic gold medal. We also won a bronze at the next Games

:44:50.:44:58.

and also a bronze at Beijing. Where the only country to have won medals

:44:58.:45:06.

at all three pentathlon so at the Olympics. -- we are the only

:45:06.:45:16.
:45:16.:45:24.

country. Now let's rejoin the action. Margaux Isaksen Has re-

:45:24.:45:29.

entered the whip - has never the ring. It is the ultimate test of

:45:29.:45:37.

the Olympic sports man and, since 2000, sportswomen. The first person

:45:37.:45:44.

to win an Olympic gold Murdoch in Sydney was Steph Cook. She is

:45:44.:45:52.

sitting behind me. The American has been having an excellent day. Just

:45:52.:45:59.

20 years old. She was equal 4th in the fencing, 16th in the swimming.

:45:59.:46:07.

She will be riding Puck Glen. horses have all been written in one

:46:07.:46:15.

round already. She is the second rider to have this horse. The first

:46:15.:46:22.

rider ended with 356 penalty points. That is a mixture of jumping and

:46:22.:46:30.

time penalties. The American is really taking a flying round. This

:46:30.:46:37.

course is tight on time. She is certainly not hanging around at all.

:46:37.:46:41.

Perhaps she could do with bringing this horse back a little bit

:46:41.:46:49.

otherwise she risks bit flattering over the fences. There you see it

:46:49.:46:59.
:46:59.:46:59.

coming out of the combination. Two rails down and another one. This

:46:59.:47:09.
:47:09.:47:11.

course has been designed by Claire Forgat and is designed to test

:47:11.:47:15.

riding ability rather than the horse. There are turns on the cause

:47:15.:47:25.
:47:25.:47:28.

to test riding ability. American conceding 80 penalty

:47:28.:47:36.

points. Sorry, 60 penalty points. 1140 points, it puts her at the

:47:36.:47:40.

moment at the top of the competition. Maybe she was going at

:47:40.:47:46.

some speed but she spent her horse for giving a decent run around.

:47:46.:47:51.

That was a fairly respectable round. We have only seen one clear so far

:47:51.:47:57.

and that was Iryna Khokhlova. She had a relatively modest performance

:47:57.:48:01.

in the fencing and swimming earlier on today. Just letting her down a

:48:02.:48:09.

little bit. That was not a bad round by her. We're now into the

:48:09.:48:19.
:48:19.:48:23.

suffering a few injuries in recent years. The way things are going at

:48:23.:48:27.

the moment, if she has a decent round here, she could put herself

:48:27.:48:33.

in a good spot for the combined event which will be at about 6

:48:33.:48:39.

o'clock. This is her third Olympic Games. She finished 9th in Beijing,

:48:40.:48:45.

11th in Athens. She is also a triple world champion and double

:48:45.:48:52.

European champion. Plenty of experience behind her. This horse

:48:52.:48:56.

was ridden by tomorrow Vega from Mexico in the first-round. --

:48:57.:49:06.
:49:07.:49:17.

problems on the course. You can tell the experience of her riding

:49:17.:49:27.

coming out here. She turns right handed into this oxer. Closely

:49:27.:49:35.

followed by two uprights. They are both one metre 20 in height. Coming

:49:35.:49:43.

into the final line now. These are the highest fences on the course.

:49:43.:49:50.

20 penalty points there, just inside the time. She will be

:49:50.:49:58.

pleased with that. That was an excellent round. She looks slightly

:49:58.:50:02.

frustrated to have the one down but at the moment she has gone into the

:50:02.:50:12.
:50:12.:50:13.

lead of the competition. That will be a good position for her. As we

:50:13.:50:18.

go through, you will see the pentathlon points tot up. For every

:50:18.:50:23.

four points behind the leader, you will go one second behind them. The

:50:23.:50:27.

leader will go first and then we progress down the rankings. At the

:50:27.:50:34.

moment, Amelie Caze is at the top. Mhairi Spence is in 10th position.

:50:34.:50:44.
:50:44.:50:56.

We are now into the top four of our She started badly in the fencing

:50:56.:51:01.

but she has pushed away up the leaderboard. She was 78 in the

:51:01.:51:09.

swimming competition, so not the strongest of swimmers -- 17th. She

:51:09.:51:19.
:51:19.:51:35.

is a mum. She has a little girl. because Laura Asadauskaite is very

:51:35.:51:39.

strong in the combined event. If she has a good round here, it will

:51:39.:51:44.

put her in a very good position coming into the final phase of the

:51:44.:51:49.

modern pentathlon competition. Her riding has been little inconsistent

:51:49.:51:59.
:51:59.:51:59.

in the past but she has really focused on it this year. She is

:51:59.:52:04.

riding the same horse as Sarolta Kovacs in the first round. She was

:52:04.:52:14.
:52:14.:52:40.

eliminated for taking the wrong Olympic Games. She is ranked number

:52:40.:52:50.
:52:50.:53:06.

championships and at the World Cup trouble there. This riding course

:53:06.:53:13.

has 12 fences, including two combinations, a double and a treble,

:53:13.:53:20.

making for 15 efforts in all. She has 20 penalty points at the moment

:53:20.:53:30.
:53:30.:53:34.

penalty points for her right, Asadauskaite will be well pleased

:53:34.:53:39.

with that and it puts her into an excellent position, prior to the

:53:39.:53:45.

combined event. Yes, she is currently leading the competition.

:53:45.:53:51.

And the horse got a little spooked on the way out of the ring. Better

:53:51.:53:57.

on the way out than in the round itself. These horses have been well

:53:57.:54:02.

schooled over these jumps. They can all jump them and they were

:54:02.:54:08.

selected originally from a pool of 150, from all around the country,

:54:08.:54:12.

from stables which are used to providing courses for show jumping

:54:12.:54:16.

and pentathlon competitions. They are used to having unfamiliar

:54:16.:54:21.

riders on their backs but it is all about the chemistry between the

:54:21.:54:25.

horse and rider. That was an extra fence there. This is Samantha

:54:25.:54:30.

Murray, currently lying third in the competition. She was joined

:54:30.:54:34.

16th after the fencing. She was second after the swim. She is a

:54:35.:54:39.

European bronze medallist. What a moment for her as she comes into

:54:39.:54:49.
:54:49.:54:49.

the ring. This horse was ridden by Chloe Esposito from Australia in

:54:49.:54:59.
:54:59.:55:04.

experience in riding. Her uncle owns a livery yard. She has grown

:55:04.:55:14.
:55:14.:55:51.

combination but she gets away with it all. Still Clear at the moment.

:55:51.:55:59.

Just got too close to that. The horse pop in an extra stride. That

:55:59.:56:09.
:56:09.:56:11.

is two fences down so far. The time penalties are starting to clock up

:56:11.:56:19.

as well. Two offences and 20 time faults as well. It started well for

:56:19.:56:27.

some Myrie who grew up in Lancashire. -- Samantha Murray. At

:56:27.:56:32.

the moment she is third place, only eight seconds off the lead as it

:56:32.:56:36.

stands at the moment. If she can keep her shooting together, she

:56:36.:56:42.

could be in for a podium finish but it will be really tight. We have

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

two more competitors to go here, Yane Marques and Adrienn Toth. What

:56:52.:56:57.

do you think? It is hard to say. It will be such a close and exciting

:56:57.:57:06.

competition. We have some really tough -- top athletes up in the mix.

:57:06.:57:10.

It will be really interesting to see which of the the athletes will

:57:10.:57:18.

be able to hold it together in the shoot. At the moment, it is Laura

:57:19.:57:22.

Asadauskaite in the lead from Lithuania. Amelie Caze is in second

:57:22.:57:29.

place and then Samantha Murray. Iryna Khokhlova is just behind her.

:57:29.:57:34.

We wait to see the last two riders and see if either of those two can

:57:34.:57:42.

take their place in the top three. This is Yane Marques of Brazil.

:57:42.:57:47.

is ranked third in the world. It is her second Olympic Games. She

:57:47.:57:55.

finished 18th in Brazil. This horse was ridden by Sabrina Crognale in

:57:55.:58:04.

the first-round. It is a careful little jumper. But unfortunately,

:58:05.:58:14.
:58:15.:58:28.

there, Marques needed to keep the fences on the course to get bigger

:58:28.:58:36.

so they are up to height at the end. There were a few hairy moments

:58:36.:58:46.
:58:46.:58:56.

the front legs. 40 jumping penalties and eight time faults as

:58:56.:59:00.

well. But she held that together pretty well, even though the time

:59:00.:59:05.

was starting to beat her towards the end of it. She will be in

:59:05.:59:15.
:59:15.:59:17.

second place at the moment. Nora Asadauskaite is still top. -- Laura

:59:17.:59:27.
:59:27.:59:37.

this combined event. It is no longer a straight run for the

:59:37.:59:44.

finish as it was when Steph won gold in Sydney. There are three

:59:44.:59:50.

kilometres with three lots of five targets with an air pistol to shoot.

:59:50.:59:53.

It is not only a test of the athlete's running ability and

:59:53.:59:58.

shooting ability, but also the ability to keep cool under pressure,

:59:58.:00:03.

to keep their heart rate down and it can really change around in the

:00:03.:00:09.

final section here. David Svoboda of the Czech Republic was the

:00:09.:00:19.
:00:19.:00:20.

winner of the gold medal yesterday. He had the better run on the hills,

:00:20.:00:29.

a very hilly course around Greenwich Park here. Adrienn Toth

:00:29.:00:39.
:00:39.:00:52.

than Adam Marosi yesterday who took the bronze medal for Hungary. She

:00:52.:01:02.
:01:02.:01:17.

points. It will turn it into a very close competition at the top. --

:01:17.:01:27.
:01:27.:01:54.

more rails down. And another two in That was five rails down, a total

:01:54.:02:00.

of 100 jumping penalties. It will be interesting to see where that

:02:00.:02:05.

puts her overall in the competition. She will be in 5th position. She

:02:05.:02:12.

was the final rider to go here. 1,100 points for Adrienn Toth. She

:02:12.:02:15.

looks disappointed with that because she was in such a good

:02:15.:02:19.

position as the leader going into the riding phase, but it just

:02:19.:02:24.

proves that this is where things are shaken up. We say that the

:02:24.:02:28.

cream does tend to rise at the top and at the top of the leaderboard

:02:28.:02:38.
:02:38.:02:42.

is Laura Asadauskaite. We will see she's very strong. They raised

:02:42.:02:49.

strong. -- shoot. The Laura Asadauskaite's markings on the same

:02:49.:02:56.

score, so they will set off into the lead. Amelie Caze, only two

:02:56.:03:02.

seconds behind. It is so close at the top. You can't get tighter than

:03:02.:03:09.

that. It really is very, very close. Look up the scores there. That is

:03:09.:03:17.

after the riding. Iryna Khokhlova were the only clear round. Samantha

:03:17.:03:25.

Murray was 13th place. A Elena Rublevska, who led early on, his

:03:25.:03:31.

own the 16th. So, the standings in the riding, in a few moments time,

:03:31.:03:36.

we will be able to tell you the order they will go off in the

:03:36.:03:46.
:03:46.:03:51.

happiest of times but Mhairi Spence, her hopes of repeating the success

:03:51.:03:56.

she had, have probably gone. We do see that happen in modern

:03:56.:04:01.

pentathlon. Lena Schoneborn, defending champion, right down

:04:01.:04:05.

there in the riding, so they are starting to clear the course away

:04:05.:04:14.

to prepare for the running course. Laura Asadauskaite, top of the

:04:14.:04:18.

leaderboard with Yane Marques, an equal number of points behind her.

:04:19.:04:23.

And then at Amelie Caze, who will go to seconds behind Samantha

:04:23.:04:28.

Murray. She would go eight seconds behind the leader, Adrienn Toth,

:04:28.:04:33.

and Mhairi Spence going down the leaderboard. She is well out of

:04:33.:04:37.

contention at the moment because she has improved her run and he

:04:37.:04:41.

shooting, but she will go 30 seconds behind the leader. It is

:04:41.:04:47.

going to be so fascinating. The very final medals at London 2012

:04:47.:04:53.

will be awarded at a roundabout 6:15pm after the combined event but,

:04:53.:05:03.
:05:03.:05:04.

A disappointing round there for Mhairi Spence, but Samantha Murray

:05:04.:05:09.

is in a good position. She has got a very good time for the combined,

:05:09.:05:13.

hasn't she? It doesn't look like Laura Asadauskaite will be caught

:05:13.:05:17.

by any body but has a much better time than a Amelie Caze and Yane

:05:17.:05:23.

Marques? Exactly, it will be very exciting. I'm fascinated watching

:05:23.:05:27.

the show jumping phase. Some of them of very, very good riders and

:05:27.:05:33.

others, less so. Some horses are easy and some aren't so it has a

:05:33.:05:37.

morbid fascination for me because so much can go wrong. This is the

:05:37.:05:40.

first time in the Olympic Games this has been combined, and they

:05:40.:05:44.

set off with the leaders going out first. We have joint leader setting

:05:44.:05:49.

off together, so will there be argy-bargy? Would it get quite

:05:49.:05:54.

physical as well? They run for a very short period, they stopped,

:05:54.:05:57.

and then to be shooting at the far end of the arena. They are using

:05:57.:06:01.

electric targets, so not actual bullets, but your accuracy has to

:06:02.:06:06.

be very good. Then they have a one, to run, they come back, should

:06:06.:06:13.

again, and repeated, twice. And the winner will be the first one across

:06:13.:06:18.

the line, so there is huge scope for those who are placed in the top

:06:18.:06:22.

10 to make up ground, because you are the target in front of you. You

:06:22.:06:28.

have got some body you are aiming at. We have seen Steph Cook, when

:06:28.:06:35.

she won in Sydney, you can really, particularly with a crowd and

:06:35.:06:40.

support, I think Samantha Murray will think she could still win it.

:06:40.:06:46.

Yes, she has good competitors ahead affair, and Amelie Caze is dangers,

:06:46.:06:51.

right in the mix. She's thinking it's a big chance. Amelie Caze's

:06:51.:06:55.

personal best is a minute and a half a slower than Samantha

:06:55.:07:00.

Murray's. Shooting will a major effect. That can change day-by-day

:07:00.:07:05.

and that is a real test of your ability to calm yourself down, to

:07:05.:07:10.

get a high adrenalin, and then slow your heart-rate down, take aim at,

:07:10.:07:15.

take your time and fire. The two combined, I think it makes it more

:07:15.:07:19.

unpredictable. Having them next to each other in the shooting, when

:07:19.:07:22.

they are catching up with each other, shoulder to shoulder, will

:07:22.:07:26.

be very interesting. I think it will be gripping, the last gold

:07:27.:07:32.

medal awarded. The last silver medal and bronze medal as well.

:07:32.:07:35.

What a magnificent end to the Olympic Games it would be of great

:07:35.:07:42.

Britain could manage to be on the podium. For Mhairi Spence, her show

:07:42.:07:47.

jumping has cost her dearly and she's an outside bet now but for

:07:47.:07:52.

Samantha Murray it's desperately possible. We will join you for that

:07:52.:07:56.

just before 6pm. Legacy was always a huge part of the London Games and

:07:56.:08:01.

just chatting to friends and family, so many of us already feel inspired.

:08:01.:08:05.

Thousands of people will take up new sports hopefully. If you went

:08:05.:08:15.
:08:15.:08:22.

to Tooting Bec Lida today you would I don't think anyone can deny the

:08:22.:08:25.

Olympic Games has been a fabulous success, Great Britain's third on

:08:25.:08:31.

the medal table. What about the important legacy? Ian Thorpe is

:08:31.:08:41.
:08:41.:08:45.

asking the same question in Tooting I like teaching people how to swim.

:08:45.:08:52.

I enjoy it. I don't do it very often. On Friday, I thought, maybe

:08:52.:08:58.

I will offer free swimming lessons. And all of these people came to the

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

Great Britain has done really well in terms of performance but what do

:09:10.:09:15.

you think the legacy should look like for Great Britain? It's a good

:09:15.:09:18.

time to actually have a conversation about it. It's a

:09:18.:09:21.

conversation that happens nationally, which needs to happen

:09:21.:09:27.

between government and also a leap sport. What role we play in this

:09:27.:09:34.

country for years to come? We have to look at the impact Sport has. In

:09:35.:09:38.

terms of an over burgeoning of the health budget, getting people

:09:38.:09:41.

involved in sport and exercise, I don't care what a corner, getting

:09:41.:09:46.

active, will save people money in the future. But I don't care what

:09:46.:09:51.

you call it. Children have been inspired by what they have seen on

:09:51.:09:57.

a television. If they have not been, Britain has a problem. The athletes

:09:57.:10:02.

have done well. What has been great be showcasing so many sports. And

:10:02.:10:09.

people saying, I can try that out. It's just fun, and it's something I

:10:09.:10:19.

It's a good opportunity to be taught proper swimming from an

:10:19.:10:26.

Olympic champion. You can improve so much. Have you seen the future

:10:26.:10:34.

Ian Thorpe? I hope not thought it If you would like to get involved

:10:34.:10:43.

in Olympic sports, go to the I think we would love a view Ian

:10:44.:10:50.

Thorpes here. What a great capacity has been. Baroness Sue Campbell,

:10:50.:10:55.

the chair of UK Sport, has come in to talk about legacy. First of all,

:10:55.:10:59.

the success of UK Sport in terms of the money you put into coaching and

:10:59.:11:03.

athletes for the and seeing the fruition of a here, it's a business

:11:03.:11:07.

where you can measure it, can't you? Yes, it's been fantastic, a

:11:07.:11:10.

ten-year journey to see the performances we have seen here

:11:10.:11:15.

today. The money we have invested as not has been invested in the

:11:15.:11:19.

medals for London, but building a high-performance system that can

:11:19.:11:23.

continue to grow and evolves through to Rio and beyond. That's

:11:23.:11:29.

really important. Legacy is about the next generation. I think we

:11:29.:11:32.

have built something here in high performance terms, which will be a

:11:32.:11:36.

very, very strong, sustainable system, and it would not be

:11:36.:11:40.

possible without the lottery and government money. But it's more

:11:40.:11:44.

than money. It's about building a system which looks at coaching,

:11:44.:11:48.

talent development, research, innovation, sports medicine,

:11:48.:11:52.

science is, all of those things which surround the coaches and

:11:52.:11:58.

athletes to make sure they can produce world-class performances.

:11:58.:12:01.

talk with Ian Thorpe about Australia's dropping off, a little

:12:01.:12:06.

bit, since Sydney. A lot of coaches left, systems were disbanded, and

:12:06.:12:10.

was never as good as people thought. From the outside, it looked like a

:12:10.:12:13.

mystery project going on at the Institute of Sport, but it's

:12:13.:12:18.

important, in a business, a sports organisation, to have some bawdy

:12:18.:12:22.

good at the top. Somebody needs to come through which includes coaches,

:12:22.:12:27.

doesn't it? It does. One of the things we are proudest of in the

:12:27.:12:32.

last 10 years, is we have done a really good work around both play a

:12:32.:12:36.

part ways, really doing a health check of the talent pathway for

:12:36.:12:41.

each sport, but also matching it to really strong, powerful well-

:12:41.:12:46.

managed coaches. So, in the early days, we imported foreign coaches

:12:46.:12:51.

to really help us take a step up, and now we are developing British

:12:51.:12:55.

coaches underneath which can take their place. I think we have built

:12:55.:12:59.

something very special here. A lot of people think somehow this is

:12:59.:13:04.

going to be the moment that we were at our best. I don't think so, I

:13:04.:13:08.

think we can move on. David Cameron has said this morning he will

:13:08.:13:15.

continue to fund be on the 2014. The money was in place until then

:13:15.:13:19.

but now you have assurances that that level of funding will be there

:13:19.:13:26.

until 2016 it. That must be a huge relief? It's massive. Most

:13:26.:13:31.

importantly, its massive to the Sports, because of these four year

:13:31.:13:35.

programmes are exactly what they say, and it's very hard if you

:13:35.:13:38.

start with uncertainty, you may have less money for the following

:13:38.:13:41.

two years, so the Government's announcement today is terrific,

:13:41.:13:47.

very welcome, and the athletes and coaches, and us, we are grateful

:13:47.:13:51.

because we know our planning for the Olympics in Rio can be the best

:13:51.:13:56.

possible. There is tangible evidence which may back up why that

:13:56.:13:59.

may happen because if you look at how host nations of third in the

:13:59.:14:05.

years afterwards, there is a decline -- host nations have fared

:14:05.:14:09.

in the years afterwards, there is a decline. There is a peak in Athens

:14:09.:14:15.

and then a tailing off and even China, the superpower it was in

:14:15.:14:19.

Beijing, has dropped off somewhat. Some of their medals have gone to

:14:19.:14:28.

great Britain. Other nations get stronger. 29 Metals now. A Anthony

:14:28.:14:34.

Joshua one there are heavyweight. was there. How do inshore this not

:14:34.:14:41.

a tailing off. A home crowd stands for lot. Mo Farah said the crowd

:14:41.:14:45.

got him over the line. It's been a contributing factor, so there has

:14:45.:14:50.

to be a slight accounting for that. Powell do make sure it does not

:14:50.:14:54.

take off like Australia? Again, it's about building a system which

:14:54.:15:00.

is very resilient and sustainable. In the past, what Britain has done,

:15:00.:15:04.

it invested in individuals and coaches but not builders system so

:15:04.:15:09.

as those individuals move on, you can continue to build. I think

:15:09.:15:13.

we're in a great place. We have won more medals this time in more

:15:13.:15:20.

sports, which was one of our promises. 16 different sports. Six

:15:20.:15:25.

more than Beijing. This still scope for improvement in some sport and

:15:25.:15:28.

are still sports which are not quite at the World Class level yet

:15:28.:15:34.

but, but the right investment, they can take a step up, I have been in

:15:34.:15:39.

every arena and the home crowd has been immense. They had been immense,

:15:39.:15:43.

not just for athletes, but they're just such a knowledgeable people,

:15:43.:15:48.

it's been a terrific. They have given our athletes an edge, but I'm

:15:48.:15:54.

very positive that we can celebrate where we are, enjoyed, and then

:15:54.:15:59.

push on again until Rio. I think there is a real commitment in the

:15:59.:16:03.

system. Our performance directors and coaches are looking for the

:16:03.:16:07.

next step up, so I'm excited. ultimately take responsibility for

:16:07.:16:11.

what goes on in their sport so if we look at how they fared against

:16:11.:16:21.
:16:21.:16:30.

their targets, in athletics was a The stand-out sport, which seems to

:16:30.:16:36.

be no where near its target,, you say it's the most disappointing

:16:36.:16:40.

return. They are very disappointed. I sat with a chief executive

:16:40.:16:46.

yesterday and I know they are devastated. They are instigating a

:16:46.:16:50.

review. What we do after every Games is sit down with each sport

:16:50.:16:54.

and have a thorough look at what happened. And what is possible

:16:54.:17:00.

going forward for that judo said the fact they had won medals, was a

:17:00.:17:04.

relief for their funding. It's catch 22 for the desert swimming

:17:04.:17:14.

now get penalised for not attaining its target? It's a conversation we

:17:14.:17:18.

have to have but we introduced no compromise approach, one of the

:17:18.:17:22.

first things I did when I came in, and that's tough, but the world of

:17:22.:17:26.

the elite sport is tough for that I remember after Athens, cutting the

:17:26.:17:29.

gymnastics budget very significantly because they just

:17:30.:17:33.

hadn't got sufficient people in this system to warrant that kind of

:17:33.:17:38.

investment. And look where they are now. They went into Beijing and did

:17:38.:17:42.

well and they are on that trajectory. Sometimes you have to

:17:42.:17:46.

go backwards to go forwards, so it's not about penalising but

:17:46.:17:51.

investing public money in the most effective way to get the best

:17:51.:18:01.
:18:01.:18:05.

Is that any inquiry that will go on into swimming and is it open?

:18:05.:18:09.

believe in open and transparent ways of working. Everybody

:18:09.:18:13.

understands how we work and how things are invested. And we do that

:18:13.:18:17.

for every sport. Even Dave Brailsford, with all his success,

:18:17.:18:22.

he is still accountable and has to be. He is a wonderful example of

:18:22.:18:27.

somebody who keeps on innovating and pushing on. And we want that in

:18:27.:18:32.

the system. Another strength from the last four years has been how

:18:32.:18:37.

good the sports have been at sharing best practice. Yes, many

:18:37.:18:42.

would love to tap into what Dave Brailsford has done. Yes. Thank you,

:18:42.:18:52.
:18:52.:18:57.

Sue. In the end, four medals for the athletes in track and field.

:18:57.:19:00.

How would you assess the performance of the team from your

:19:00.:19:09.

perspective across the board? have mixed feelings about it. It is

:19:09.:19:13.

clear we are below eight medals. So a bit mixed about it but there is

:19:13.:19:18.

plenty to celebrate and to remember the iconic moments. We finished in

:19:18.:19:25.

the medal tally, which is exceptional for us. I think we made

:19:25.:19:31.

the nation proud and we can look back at it for a long time.

:19:31.:19:34.

mention the eight medals and it has been well publicised that you said

:19:34.:19:38.

you would consider your position and may be resigned if you did not

:19:38.:19:42.

hit your target. Are you now re- evaluating in light of what you

:19:42.:19:49.

have said, about being in the medal table, and delivering four out of

:19:49.:19:55.

six? It is a slightly different scenario? Yes. It is. I have taken

:19:55.:20:02.

the advice of a few friends and the CEO. We need to go on a break first,

:20:02.:20:11.

for a few weeks. And then take some distance and re-evaluate and look

:20:11.:20:17.

back rationally. So it is something I will get back to in a few weeks.

:20:17.:20:20.

I know you talked about the credibility issue of setting a

:20:20.:20:25.

target and not eating it and then not staying on. I will come back to

:20:25.:20:35.
:20:35.:20:36.

that. -- not meeting it. Do you think it changes as they thought

:20:36.:20:46.
:20:46.:20:48.

people's -- changes people's perspective of these Games? We lost

:20:48.:20:52.

our credibility collectively over the last 15 years and I think

:20:52.:20:58.

people are proud now, so I am happy with that. Nevertheless, I have

:20:58.:21:03.

made the point many times, when I was asked, what do you do when the

:21:03.:21:09.

target is not hit? So for me at the moment, it does not change. But I

:21:09.:21:13.

promise to leave that for a while. And I will get back to that when

:21:13.:21:23.

the time is there. Today is about the athletes. That is what they

:21:23.:21:27.

deserve. Charles van Commenee. It will be a bit of time before he

:21:27.:21:33.

makes his decision. Would you like to see him stay on? Yes. He has not

:21:33.:21:36.

been there very long considering how long it takes to shape a

:21:36.:21:44.

performance systems. I think he has brought a discipline and

:21:44.:21:48.

organisation to track and field and he has a huge amount to contribute.

:21:49.:21:52.

We hope he does think very seriously and hopefully he stays

:21:52.:21:57.

with us. We have got the World Athletics Championships in 2017. A

:21:57.:22:02.

great target for him as well as Rio. It would be great to have him with

:22:02.:22:09.

us in the system. And if it is on Saturday, it will be great, because

:22:09.:22:14.

that happens every night! Yes. I don't know that we will see another

:22:14.:22:21.

athlete winning the five and the 10. We all wanted it so much. Special

:22:21.:22:25.

moments and special athletes. What are your stand-out moments? You

:22:25.:22:31.

have been too many venues and seen lots of sports? Probably my most

:22:31.:22:35.

tearful moment was Kath Grainger. I have seen her through three

:22:35.:22:39.

Olympics to get that silver and I know how much this meant. Everybody

:22:39.:22:45.

around me was crying. And such a story coming into this. Everybody

:22:45.:22:50.

was willing her and her partner, Anna Watkins, over the line. Yes!

:22:50.:22:56.

We should not forget her! We are so focused on Kath Grainger. But we

:22:56.:23:05.

think the cycling at the velodrome was immense. Chris's final gold...

:23:05.:23:10.

Yes, that has been mentioned so much. And I loved seeing Nicola win

:23:10.:23:15.

that boxing medal. She won the first ever woman's boxing medal. I

:23:15.:23:21.

saw her do that. And what a wonderful event it has been.

:23:21.:23:24.

Anybody who was not sure about women are on the agenda has been

:23:24.:23:29.

blown away by the standard of the women boxers. Yes. I don't know a

:23:29.:23:33.

great deal about boxing but who was standing around aficionados of the

:23:33.:23:43.
:23:43.:23:44.

sport and they were saying, this is so good. -- but I was standing. And

:23:44.:23:49.

such a fantastic person to go with it. Working on a building site and

:23:49.:23:56.

here she is in an and Olympic championships. I understand boxing

:23:56.:24:05.

will expand the winning events. I think it will be five. Yes, five by

:24:05.:24:10.

the time we get to Rio. They did very well. I sat next to the

:24:11.:24:15.

chairman at Joshua's fight just now and he kept reminding me how well

:24:15.:24:20.

we have done! So I am sure we will do a review. Thank you so much for

:24:20.:24:24.

coming in. Good luck for the next four years.

:24:24.:24:28.

Let's move on to the final of the men's basketball. Not surprisingly,

:24:28.:24:37.

it is the model of the 2012 US Dream Team. They pass the 100 point

:24:37.:24:42.

barrier in five of their seven games, including an Olympic record

:24:42.:24:47.

of 156 points against Nigeria. They took on Spain today in a climax of

:24:47.:24:56.

what has been a dramatic basketball Welcome to London 2012 and the

:24:56.:25:06.
:25:06.:25:18.

it! Goes up with the two hands and stuffs it with some anger! This

:25:18.:25:25.

game has been out of control for a while. There's your All-Stars

:25:26.:25:35.

showing up. And Spain has defeated Russia, and they will advance to

:25:35.:25:42.

the gold medal game. Now let's Durant, and he hits it. The actor

:25:42.:25:52.
:25:52.:25:57.

is a thing of beauty. Team USA is They are out in the Olympic Park to

:25:57.:26:07.
:26:07.:26:18.

the north of Greenwich arena. The will the US come out? And how will

:26:18.:26:28.
:26:28.:26:33.

Spain come out and react? Calderon brings the ball up. And Anisya

:26:33.:26:39.

Kirdyapkina gets it from Fernandez. But Chandler came out to shut him

:26:39.:26:49.

out. And now they start over. Navarro driving and then they miss

:26:49.:26:56.

the rebound. It is interesting they chose to pass the ball out. I like

:26:56.:27:00.

that play but instead of a shot you have a shot 15 freed from the

:27:00.:27:10.
:27:10.:27:13.

basket. That is a tough shot. Nothing but net. Four-point game.

:27:13.:27:23.
:27:23.:27:28.

Calderon brings it back for Spain. Backing in Ron Tyson Chandler.

:27:28.:27:37.

does that so well. He really does have an arsenal in his post. He

:27:37.:27:40.

started off every quarter closely but that was brilliant defence

:27:40.:27:47.

there. A great hand in the face. Over to James and gives a bumper to

:27:47.:27:57.
:27:57.:27:58.

Ibaka. Durant tries to stuff it through and he will be fouled. That

:27:58.:28:05.

is his first. And he's going for that from deep. The US bench is up

:28:05.:28:12.

in recognition of that. From about the time he took the stuff to

:28:12.:28:22.
:28:22.:28:45.

step... Yes, they were anticipating lead for the US. Navarro cutting

:28:45.:28:55.
:28:55.:28:55.

through. Again, backs in on Chandler. It is in, and the foul on

:28:55.:29:05.

Chandler. One thing it seems is that Paul is more effective on the

:29:05.:29:09.

basket. I think he has a bit of both. But when he faces the basket

:29:09.:29:16.

that is when his quick advantage comes into play. We have seen in

:29:16.:29:21.

previous games, the last game we watched, the bronze medal match, a

:29:21.:29:26.

constant help was coming even if it was not a solid double. It was

:29:26.:29:32.

making the post player think. But this time Gasol has all the time in

:29:32.:29:39.

the world to think about what he is going to do next. No way to go...

:29:39.:29:49.
:29:49.:29:49.

Fernandez comes down with the rebound and runs. Fernandez looking

:29:49.:29:59.
:29:59.:30:02.

for a pass. And Spain is in the lead. I have the say, the USA looks

:30:02.:30:07.

a little tight now. Not so free and loose. It is not that that is what

:30:07.:30:11.

I think they need right now but they seem to have a comfortable

:30:11.:30:17.

swagger about their game that is not currently present. Durant is

:30:17.:30:22.

off. Fernandez was boxed out by Gasol. That was a good defensive

:30:22.:30:30.

set from the US. And that came right on the buzzer, as you saw.

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

And Bryant could not get anywhere. That went off his rut. And a bit

:30:41.:30:51.

unlucky there. Because that is not what they wanted. Per -- off his

:30:51.:31:01.
:31:01.:31:05.

foot. As we always say, until the well is dry... Now, instead of a

:31:05.:31:15.

layer, you get that shot. This ball turns things up for the US. Kevin

:31:15.:31:25.
:31:25.:31:30.

Love for three. The anti- misses. - - and he misses. Spain is up by

:31:30.:31:40.
:31:40.:31:42.

three. If anybody was wandering whether that was legitimate, it was.

:31:42.:31:52.

Paul left before James. He picked it up. That is quick. Should not be

:31:52.:32:02.
:32:02.:32:11.

legal for somebody that big to be went off Toby Bryant. The US does

:32:11.:32:19.

look tight. You are right. Defensively. Rudi Fernandez put his

:32:19.:32:28.

head down and kicked it out. It is that away by it Love. I think

:32:28.:32:37.

that's a good call, too. Maybe you get away with it. But that's a good

:32:37.:32:47.
:32:47.:33:09.

ball. Maybe Love reflected on not see Kevin Grant moving over to the

:33:09.:33:19.
:33:19.:33:34.

Spain up by two. Kobe Bryant drives. Go 68-68. And again, you just have

:33:34.:33:40.

to wonder, the defence is so porous, where these drives can happen. You

:33:41.:33:50.
:33:51.:33:59.

have got to be able to step up and from seeming like the Spanish team

:33:59.:34:09.

had taken control, but that's good. The USA looking like they were back

:34:09.:34:15.

into it. Back into their rhythm. Both teams are looking as if

:34:15.:34:19.

they're getting the shots they wanted. That's the question for the

:34:19.:34:27.

defence, because it's so easy. Chris Paul, reaching an, and there

:34:27.:34:33.

:34:43.:35:39.

lead, halfway through the third the court, with his arms spread,

:35:39.:35:49.
:35:49.:35:51.

asking for the foul. That is the third on James. Williams has a

:35:51.:36:01.
:36:01.:36:20.

three. Love has three. Anthony has able to play. In a sense, they

:36:20.:36:27.

could be playing better without him. They have to go with Pau Gasol all

:36:27.:36:32.

the time. Maybe it's a better match up defensively for them. It's not

:36:33.:36:38.

necessarily that I think he's not a good unit on the fraught but he

:36:38.:36:45.

does bring them some toughness on the inside. Lately, the USA have

:36:45.:36:55.
:36:55.:36:56.

played for the basket unchallenged. Marc Gasol can stop that from

:36:56.:37:02.

happening. A but even it was in the game, he would not be able to step

:37:02.:37:12.
:37:12.:37:24.

up. Rodriguez is in for Spain. earth stopping him going for a

:37:24.:37:31.

basket. No, but was a done deal for some time but it was bad defence. I

:37:31.:37:37.

had know why -- I have no idea why he was playing so far too high side.

:37:37.:37:42.

Straight into the basket. Good a shot by Bryant. He's been doing the

:37:42.:37:50.

simple things so well. Remarkable. In this tournament, he's done

:37:50.:37:58.

amazing things, he's done so well. As a defensive specialist, he's

:37:58.:38:02.

great. It must be nice to the Continent week -- complementary

:38:02.:38:10.

player who can contribute in such a good way. A little bit of mopping

:38:10.:38:15.

up going on under the basket. Now Kobe Bryant will take two foul

:38:15.:38:25.
:38:25.:38:54.

go out and Darren Williams will come in for the USA who now lead by

:38:54.:39:04.
:39:04.:39:04.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 56 seconds

:39:04.:39:50.

of a fast break basket. They managed to get back so quickly.

:39:50.:40:00.
:40:00.:40:00.

Rodriguez lost it. Pau Gasol could not get the dinner. Ibaka, he is

:40:00.:40:05.

running the court and it's a two point game. It's been a good

:40:05.:40:12.

recovery by Spain, but if people start watching this game like a

:40:12.:40:15.

tennis match and see the ball going back and forth, back and forth so

:40:15.:40:23.

quickly, that is of the USA's case. Darren Williams, stolen away by a

:40:23.:40:33.
:40:33.:40:36.

Rodriguez. And Spain's Pau Gasol is taking a rest. They know it's a

:40:36.:40:46.
:40:46.:41:00.

mismatch. Key we have seen that tightness. 83-80. And there it is.

:41:00.:41:07.

1.5 minutes to play in this third period. Rodriguez. It was kicked by

:41:07.:41:17.

Darren Williams. Spain, on the shot blocked. Do you know what I think

:41:17.:41:21.

will hurt the Spanish team? Every time I watch Pau Gasol, he's got

:41:21.:41:29.

his hands on his knees. He's tired. He's being put on defence. Even in

:41:29.:41:33.

the zone, he's guarding two or three different people and having

:41:33.:41:43.
:41:43.:42:15.

to recover and offence, he asked to is the break he needed. I don't

:42:15.:42:25.
:42:25.:42:37.

Spain wants to run. When they get the rebound by her Rodriguez into

:42:37.:42:47.
:42:47.:42:50.

the corner. 14 on be shot clock, 30 on the game clock. The foul will be

:42:50.:43:00.
:43:00.:43:01.

on page Iguodala. That what they needed, to stop this game. Kobe

:43:01.:43:11.
:43:11.:43:11.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 56 seconds

:43:11.:44:02.

point game with 27 seconds left of the quarter. Ibaka is out at the

:44:02.:44:11.

three point line. We to means he's not out there to help on defence.

:44:11.:44:19.

We Liam's working, working, five on the clock. -- a Williams. Rodriguez

:44:19.:44:26.

picks it up. He will fire a long shot. It comes off the back board.

:44:26.:44:36.
:44:36.:44:37.

We saw him as he walks both before wagging his finger. The it was one.

:44:37.:44:47.
:44:47.:44:51.

The it's a real cat and mouse encounter. Every time the USA get

:44:51.:45:01.
:45:01.:45:37.

get two or three passes, each team is getting better looks at the

:45:37.:45:42.

basket. And then they become more stagnant, and both teams looked

:45:42.:45:52.
:45:52.:45:57.

good. Marc Gasol. He is re-entering the game which is good for Spain. I

:45:57.:46:02.

think they need to go back to basics. Pau Gasol on the post and

:46:02.:46:05.

anybody else in a good space, because that's what worked for them

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

in the first. And they had Juan- Carlos Navarro to carry them

:46:16.:46:20.

through the first quarter. The Spanish team have kept pace with

:46:20.:46:25.

the USA throughout. They have refused to allow the Americans to

:46:25.:46:35.
:46:35.:46:53.

this tournament, you can talk about cheating are more often than not.

:46:53.:46:59.

The balance of good shooting his defence. Sometimes, bad teamwork.

:46:59.:47:06.

It's about shot selection. And the quality of the defence. Try and get

:47:06.:47:14.

the best possible quality shot even against these good, solid defences.

:47:14.:47:19.

Love was hit after the shot by a Fernandez. He got away with it

:47:19.:47:27.

twice in this game. I'm not sure that's a smart foul. K B Bryant is

:47:27.:47:32.

a Grade should do, but I'm not sure why that's a good idea. -- A Greek

:47:32.:47:42.
:47:42.:47:50.

there in his face. Just a foul on the elbow there that time. So what

:47:50.:47:56.

was not even like he was going to take him out for the game. Misses

:47:56.:48:06.
:48:06.:48:18.

he has four. Yes, he does. And that could cause problems for him

:48:18.:48:28.
:48:28.:48:32.

defensively. He makes the ball. Six minutes to play. And it is now one

:48:32.:48:42.
:48:42.:48:44.

never for the Gasol brothers. -- now or never. It is a really simple

:48:44.:48:49.

but smart play. They just run across screen with what you would

:48:49.:48:59.

imagine is the primary post guy, Gasol, screaming away from the side.

:48:59.:49:09.
:49:09.:49:30.

the rebound. Out to Navarro. A double screen. Great pass. That is

:49:30.:49:37.

the set to play their love to work. Yeah, and they do it well. But, boy,

:49:37.:49:47.
:49:47.:49:59.

do you need to make that shot in does differently. So not quite as

:49:59.:50:09.

bad as when he goes off. Will they stay big or small? I would almost

:50:09.:50:16.

bet they don't go with Chandler. Eight-point game. First ball as we

:50:16.:50:26.

approach the halfway point of the final quarter. Cross-court a Paul.

:50:26.:50:36.
:50:36.:50:52.

inside. He has just got to play, Durant. Regardless of the foul or

:50:52.:50:58.

not. He has got to get technical or he will be thrown out of this game.

:50:58.:51:08.
:51:08.:51:08.

He is still on the ground... And that was Bryant with the shot. He

:51:08.:51:18.
:51:18.:51:18.

hits! Anthony is still feeling the pain. Still hobbling. And this does

:51:19.:51:23.

not suit it either team well. When a player is about to shoot, the

:51:23.:51:27.

defender runs right to buy them rather than trying to get down in

:51:27.:51:37.
:51:37.:51:48.

front and played deep. -- runs the shot. Antibiotics it in. It is

:51:48.:51:58.
:51:58.:52:09.

a six-point game again. -- and he Bryant and Spain takes possession

:52:09.:52:19.
:52:19.:52:27.

again. -- tips it to Bryant. can see he takes a half step back

:52:27.:52:33.

because he knows both US players are going to come in. Then he is in

:52:33.:52:39.

perfect position. But if Bryant had pursued, too, he would have been

:52:39.:52:49.
:52:49.:52:51.

there to stop it. And that defence was picture-perfect on Bryant.

:52:51.:52:56.

But that pass was definitely errant. You have to teach players to get

:52:56.:53:06.

into a position where you can foul. He had to move into the passing no.

:53:06.:53:15.

Yes. And my question is, previously, they inbound the ball and if you

:53:15.:53:22.

are up by 10 with four minutes to play, were due not on the clock to

:53:22.:53:27.

not start immediately and used as much time as you could? -- would

:53:27.:53:36.

you not want the clock? I have a feeling most of those guys know

:53:36.:53:44.

something I don't, though! The US up by six with three minutes to

:53:44.:53:52.

play. A high-scoring game by both teams in this Olympic final. Spain

:53:52.:53:56.

have two silver medals in their Olympic history, including the one

:53:56.:54:06.
:54:06.:54:07.

from Beijing four years ago. The pass was deflected by Durant and

:54:07.:54:17.
:54:17.:54:28.

there will be 12 seconds on the brothers and Carlos Navarro. In and

:54:28.:54:34.

out. They tried to keep it him play but only as far as Durant. You saw

:54:34.:54:42.

that there. That is a hard ball. Yes. That is OK. And that is how

:54:42.:54:51.

the game is played. Gasol is now going with the up and under. So he

:54:51.:54:58.

has just got to go back to the sweeping ball, the one-piece moved.

:54:58.:55:06.

That is what you don't want to do! Create a one-way system for them.

:55:06.:55:16.
:55:16.:55:26.

And by that I mean "wow"! A double and it was good. Great pass behind

:55:26.:55:32.

the back to Gasol. They have had a number of star performances and

:55:32.:55:39.

they're doing everything they can. What you were saying before, Gasol

:55:40.:55:48.

cannot challenge, not that he would want to, because he has four forts.

:55:48.:55:58.
:55:58.:55:58.

And he'd get sit through. Six points. -- and he gets it through.

:55:58.:56:08.
:56:08.:56:08.

Over two minutes to play. The US slowing things up. Per boy, this

:56:08.:56:18.
:56:18.:56:22.

feels dangerous! He hits it! James for three. That is huge.

:56:22.:56:31.

STUDIO: Well, the lead proved unassailable in the end. The USA's

:56:31.:56:36.

20th Olympic gold in the basketball. It is closer than the final they

:56:37.:56:41.

had against Spain four years ago. They are catching up, but the USA,

:56:41.:56:51.
:56:51.:56:53.

just so dominant. James, the MBA star, enjoying his Olympic medal.

:56:53.:57:02.

And Bryant, both of them huge global stars. And afterwards, he

:57:02.:57:10.

Once again, you have got a gold medal around your neck and I can

:57:10.:57:15.

see from the smile on your face what this means to you guys! Yes.

:57:15.:57:21.

To be here now, representing our country, it is unbelievable.

:57:21.:57:28.

have you guys gel to become such a great team? We know about you

:57:28.:57:38.

individually but together? We share the ball and to try to take the

:57:38.:57:43.

shots. If and you have got such support. How much have you enjoyed

:57:43.:57:48.

being in London? It has been great. London has done a fantastic job for

:57:48.:57:54.

the Games. The City has done a fantastic job. I saw you getting a

:57:54.:57:59.

bit emotional at the final. Can you tell us why this is so tearful for

:57:59.:58:07.

you? This is my last round. So it is always emotional. Time flies!

:58:07.:58:13.

Here I am now, and it is just a great opportunity to be able to

:58:13.:58:20.

enjoy it. And you have been a hero to so many. Can you tell us what it

:58:20.:58:25.

means to have had those Stars and Stripes on your Jersey? It just

:58:25.:58:31.

means so much. A dream come true. Enjoy the moment, enjoy the gold

:58:31.:58:37.

medal. You are Olympic champions again. A thank you.

:58:37.:58:46.

Well done, USA. There is a bit of movement around the Olympic Park.

:58:46.:58:50.

The French and Swedish teams have been in the Basketball Arena and we

:58:50.:58:53.

also suspect people are coming in now for the Closing Ceremony as

:58:53.:58:59.

well, and you cannot see this, but I have seen some shots of what is

:58:59.:59:03.

going on in the stadium at the moment. They are rehearsing and you

:59:03.:59:08.

have probably seen the Spice girls photos in the papers. I have just

:59:08.:59:12.

seen a bit of a rendition of what they are going to do. It is going

:59:12.:59:19.

to be an amazing show. Let's bring you the headlines of today.

:59:19.:59:22.

Super-heavyweight boxer Anthony Joshua has clinched Great Britain's

:59:22.:59:27.

29th gold medal of these Games it after the Italian appeal from his

:59:27.:59:33.

opponent was rejected. But Welsh boxer Fred Evans had to

:59:33.:59:39.

settle for silver of a comprehensive 79 defeat by his

:59:39.:59:43.

opponent in the welterweight final. The winner was absolutely

:59:43.:59:52.

magnificent. And Stephen Kiprotich became the

:59:52.:59:58.

victor in the men's marathon over the much-fancied Kenyans.

:59:58.:00:01.

The final medal of the Olympic Games is going to be given away in

:00:01.:00:05.

the next half-hour, and Clare Balding is at North Greenwich for

:00:05.:00:10.

the combined event of the women's modern Pentathlon, and Samantha

:00:10.:00:19.

Murray is in a really good position, Clare? Yes, she is. The leader from

:00:19.:00:24.

Lithuania is very, very strong, so it would be quite a turnaround for

:00:24.:00:31.

Sam Murray to win this. But what a fantastic way to finish the Games.

:00:31.:00:37.

Remember, the women's Pentathlon only came in in 2000 in Sydney, and

:00:37.:00:41.

Britain won gold on that occasion, Stephanie Cook making up bags of

:00:41.:00:47.

time. Then it was a shrewd followed by a run. Now those are combined,

:00:47.:00:52.

and you can see the competitors sorting themselves out. -- it was a

:00:52.:01:02.

shooting event. Sam Moray, eight seconds behind the leaders. They

:01:02.:01:07.

stop to shoot and it is a laser gun and an electronic bleep registered

:01:07.:01:16.

sued. Then they run for a 1,000 metres and then come back to shoot.

:01:16.:01:21.

The winner will be the first one to cross the line. Here we go. The

:01:22.:01:31.
:01:32.:01:43.

shooting range. Shortly, you will see Sam Murray of Great Britain

:01:43.:01:48.

lining up in position number four. And it is all about getting those

:01:48.:01:58.
:01:58.:02:05.

Yane Marques is out before her. You can see the likes of Murray. She

:02:05.:02:12.

manages to get out of the range. But a good lead already for Yane

:02:12.:02:19.

Marques. What kind of a runner is our current leader? Not the best

:02:19.:02:24.

runner in the field, Yane Marques. Her best time for this event is

:02:24.:02:30.

about one minute slower than the top in this event. So I would

:02:30.:02:38.

expect her to be caught by some of the faster runners. Certainly

:02:38.:02:45.

Murray is a stronger runner, as is Amelie Caze. But she benefited from

:02:45.:02:51.

that shoot. She is building up a commanding lead already. This is a

:02:51.:02:57.

very hilly course. She has run out of the arena in front of us in

:02:57.:03:03.

Greenwich Park and she is on a wave. Don't forget that further down the

:03:04.:03:09.

leaderboard was Mhairi of Spence, 14th going into this final combined

:03:09.:03:19.
:03:19.:03:27.

Asadauskaite chasing up the Hill, trying to catch up with Yane

:03:28.:03:32.

Marques. They are out on to the hilly part of the course in

:03:32.:03:37.

Greenwich Park. It will benefit the better runners in the field. The

:03:37.:03:42.

times will be slower than we might be expecting to see because of the

:03:42.:03:50.

nature of the course. That was a glimpse of one of the British girls

:03:50.:03:54.

- that was Mhairi Spence. The final runners are heading out into the

:03:54.:04:01.

firing range. It has become a very different test. Not only is it

:04:01.:04:06.

about running three kilometres as fast as you can, it is about going

:04:06.:04:11.

into the shooting range, keeping your nerve, firing at the targets

:04:11.:04:15.

and getting back out what others around you are coming in. Perhaps

:04:15.:04:22.

your nearest rivals are right next year and not shooting down the

:04:22.:04:28.

targets. Yane Marques comes back into the stadium in front of us. We

:04:28.:04:35.

will be able to see her very shortly. She is followed by Laura

:04:35.:04:40.

Asadauskaite. The Lithuanian is making a good time already on Yane

:04:40.:04:44.

Marques. Normally I would expect Laura Asadauskaite to shoot better

:04:44.:04:49.

than she had. There was Samantha Murray going past her. Some of the

:04:49.:04:59.
:04:59.:05:04.

athletes coming through now. The Australian is another one to look

:05:04.:05:11.

out for. Coming into the stadium, Laura Asadauskaite closing up on

:05:11.:05:21.
:05:21.:05:22.

Yane Marques. Yen Marquette -- Yane Marques had a great shoot. She is

:05:22.:05:28.

back out into the lead. The world number one, the leader in this

:05:28.:05:33.

field. 1000 metres completed. They are coming back in for the second

:05:33.:05:38.

session of shooting now. It is all now about keeping their nerve.

:05:38.:05:43.

Their heart rates will be high. Breathing rates will be higher.

:05:43.:05:48.

They will be used to shooting under these sorts of conditions. Samantha

:05:48.:05:54.

Murray is coming into the shooting range. She will be in position

:05:54.:06:00.

number four. Laura Asadauskaite and back cat as well is Yane Marques.

:06:00.:06:06.

It is a battle between these are two as well. That is more of the

:06:06.:06:12.

issued we would have expected from her. She earned the midst a couple

:06:12.:06:22.

of shots. Sam is a wave from the range and again. We can hear the

:06:22.:06:30.

applause from the crowd. -- at Sam is away from the range again.

:06:30.:06:35.

a nerve-racking end to the modern pentathlon Dave. We got under way

:06:35.:06:40.

it on the fencing and then it was into the swimming pool. Then there

:06:40.:06:46.

riding phase and now the combined man and shoot. It only became part

:06:46.:06:53.

of the Olympics in Beijing when it was a straight run to the line.

:06:53.:06:58.

They have had to adapt themselves to this particular discipline and

:06:58.:07:04.

the demands it makes on embodies. Samantha Murray is starting to run

:07:04.:07:09.

up those hills. The British team have been training at altitude in

:07:09.:07:13.

the French Pyrenees. This course should not hold any fears for some

:07:13.:07:20.

and the married. Laura Asadauskaite is starting to take the lead from

:07:20.:07:30.
:07:30.:07:46.

World Championships in Rome. She was run down on the cause that day

:07:46.:07:52.

by Mhairi Spence. She has had a disappointing day by her standards.

:07:52.:07:58.

She really struggled with the horse she was given. We are seeing Laura

:07:58.:08:05.

Asadauskaite now. I think this is our leader and she looks so

:08:05.:08:12.

confident. This is a specialism for her. She became a mother last year.

:08:12.:08:21.

Two years ago. She has the young daughter. She is married to a

:08:21.:08:24.

format modern pentathlon world champion and Olympic silver and

:08:24.:08:31.

bronze medallist. There is Samantha Murray in third place at the moment.

:08:31.:08:36.

She has to go into the shooting range one more time and hit those

:08:36.:08:42.

five targets. Britain has a very proud record since it became an

:08:42.:08:52.
:08:52.:09:00.

Murray as she comes into the stadium. They ran at a little loop

:09:00.:09:06.

of the course. Yane Marques is in second place. Samantha Murray is

:09:06.:09:11.

closing all the time on Yane Marques. She has trained so hard.

:09:11.:09:19.

She is so determined. She really is. She will be giving it her all. Her

:09:19.:09:24.

running has improved immensely. It is a question of her being able to

:09:24.:09:28.

hold it together on the range in the shoot was stabbed here comes

:09:28.:09:38.
:09:38.:09:39.

the Laura Asadauskaite now. -- in a shoot. This is the final Test. She

:09:39.:09:45.

has one down, two down. She is really hitting these targets

:09:45.:09:51.

absolutely. That is four down. The pressure is on Yane Marques. She

:09:51.:09:58.

has to control her breathing and hit the targets. Samantha Murray is

:09:58.:10:03.

in a shooting range as well. Laura Asadauskaite is leaving the range.

:10:03.:10:08.

She is well out ahead. Yane Marques is struggling with her shoe.

:10:08.:10:15.

Samantha Murray has four down. She has five Dan. She would chase after

:10:15.:10:21.

the Brazilian, Yane Marques. Now it is a race to the line. Samantha

:10:21.:10:26.

Murray is in the silver-medal position at the moment. She is 22

:10:26.:10:33.

years old. From Nick Clitheroe in Lancashire. She has grown up in the

:10:33.:10:39.

Lancashire countryside. She is so good at this modern pentathlon.

:10:39.:10:45.

Laura Asadauskaite of Lithuania is out in front. She is the leader. It

:10:45.:10:50.

would be astonishing for Samantha Murray to run her down from here.

:10:50.:10:55.

The hills are taking a toll on the legs. Laura Asadauskaite is

:10:55.:11:01.

starting to breed a bit here. Her husband is a former Olympic silver

:11:01.:11:07.

and bronze medallist. Samantha Murray is in second place. Yane

:11:07.:11:13.

Marques is behind her - not that far behind her. Samantha Murray is

:11:13.:11:19.

going down health. She knows where the arena is. It is just to the

:11:20.:11:25.

left. When she re-enters the arena in Greenwich, you will hear the

:11:25.:11:30.

crowd roar her home. There is Laura Asadauskaite, the leader on the

:11:30.:11:35.

final loop of this grassy, hilly course in Greenwich Park. What a

:11:35.:11:40.

wonderful venue this has been at the Olympic Games. She has a

:11:40.:11:47.

massive lead. Up where is Samantha marry? She is out in the

:11:47.:11:53.

countryside. -- Samantha Mario Sepulveda. Laura Asadauskaite, as

:11:53.:12:01.

she comes round, she will take the final loop into the arena. That is

:12:01.:12:08.

the Chinese athlete, further back in the field. That looks like

:12:08.:12:14.

Samantha Murray with Yane Marques behind her. As Laura Asadauskaite

:12:14.:12:20.

makes her way round, she will come into the arena in a few moments,

:12:21.:12:27.

just up the final Hill. Round the course. She enters the arena now,

:12:27.:12:33.

Laura Asadauskaite, of Lithuania. The Olympic champion elect. She

:12:33.:12:40.

will be making her way round the course now. She is already

:12:40.:12:44.

celebrating. Here comes Samantha Murray. She is entering the arena.

:12:44.:12:50.

You will hear the crowd for her in in a few moments. Yane Marques is

:12:50.:12:54.

behind her comeback in the bronze- medal position. The Lithuanian is

:12:54.:12:59.

going to win gold. Samantha Murray is in the stadium now. You can hear

:12:59.:13:06.

the crowd cheering her on. The flags are waiting for her. She is

:13:06.:13:10.

following Laura Asadauskaite around the course. Yane Marques is not

:13:11.:13:15.

that far behind her. Samantha Murray has a silver medal in her

:13:15.:13:21.

sights. She is very close. Laura Asadauskaite crosses the line

:13:22.:13:27.

Ingold medal position. It is still there for Samantha married. She is

:13:27.:13:36.

a true Lancashire lass pulls up -- it is a silver medal for Samantha

:13:36.:13:44.

Murray. After 16 remarkable days of competition, it is a 65th Olympic

:13:45.:13:52.

Madog for Samantha Murray. The tradition of modern pentathlon for

:13:52.:13:57.

British women is continued. Samantha Murray is an Olympic

:13:57.:14:05.

silver medallist. As we watch the other athletes crossing the

:14:05.:14:10.

finishing line, Laura Asadauskaite looks like she has gone for a

:14:10.:14:16.

stroll in the park. Samantha Murray got the bronze medal in the World

:14:16.:14:22.

Championships. She always had it in her mind that an Olympic medal was

:14:22.:14:26.

possible. We're going to seek Mhairi Spence entering the arena

:14:26.:14:36.
:14:36.:14:37.

shortly. Laura Asadauskaite taking the gold medal. We're going to see

:14:37.:14:46.

Leena Schoneborn as well entering the stadium. She is being applauded

:14:46.:14:51.

across the line by the spectators. A Mhairi Spence, 21st in the

:14:51.:15:00.

Olympic Games was not her target. Samantha Murray, at just 22 years

:15:00.:15:06.

old, is an Olympic silver medallist. Steph Cook, you have held it

:15:06.:15:12.

together so well today. Just tell us was dug you must be so proud

:15:12.:15:17.

that the tradition you started in Sydney has been continued. -- just

:15:17.:15:25.

tell us. For Sam to come and take the silver medal, it was fantastic.

:15:25.:15:30.

She did not have the best start this morning that has put it right.

:15:30.:15:36.

She held it together so well on the shooting range. The pressure must

:15:36.:15:43.

have been immense. In the running, she gave it her off. She overhauled

:15:43.:15:50.

Yane Marques. Laura Asadauskaite, a worthy winner. Just to match left

:15:50.:15:59.

to do to close in on Laura Asadauskaite. -- just too much to

:15:59.:16:06.

do. It takes so much out are the athletes. The sport was founded 100

:16:06.:16:15.

years ago. The history of British women's modern pentathlon is such a

:16:15.:16:21.

great one. It continues here in London. It is suitable that this

:16:21.:16:26.

most hysterics bought at the Olympic Games - the modern

:16:26.:16:32.

pentathlon - produces the final medallist. Samantha Murray hugs her

:16:32.:16:38.

supporters in the crowd. We can all feel very proud of 22-year-old

:16:38.:16:48.
:16:48.:16:56.

When she was a teenager she was kicked out of the programme. She

:16:56.:17:01.

was not sure if she wanted to continue. She got advice from a

:17:01.:17:08.

sports psychologist. She found love again for her sport. She dug deeper.

:17:08.:17:14.

She attacked those hills. What fantastic scenes at Greenwich

:17:14.:17:23.

today! I had to say, a gold medal to the crowd. They were sensational.

:17:23.:17:28.

They helped her chase down the leaders, at moving up from 4th to

:17:28.:17:34.

second place. This medal rush for Great Britain, which started with

:17:34.:17:40.

Lizzie Armistead in the road race, now finishing with a fabulous

:17:40.:17:44.

silver medal for Samantha Murray in the modern pentathlon. Four years

:17:45.:17:50.

ago she was working in a cafe, watching the Beijing Olympics on

:17:50.:17:57.

television. Her absolute idol is Steph Cook. She won the first gold

:17:57.:18:02.

in the modern pentathlon. It was the first time they could compete

:18:02.:18:07.

in 2000. Great Britain is the any country to have won medals in the

:18:07.:18:14.

modern pentathlon and every single time. What a gruelling, exciting

:18:14.:18:18.

competition. Having watched the showjumping and then to see then

:18:18.:18:22.

set off as they do, the pressure of standing next to each other to

:18:22.:18:25.

shoot and knowing that the person next to you is getting their

:18:25.:18:29.

targets and setting off again and tried to chase them down and there

:18:29.:18:34.

hills as well, coming in here to run on the surface designed for the

:18:34.:18:40.

dress such horses and show jumpers, quite difficult. It has bring in it.

:18:40.:18:45.

To finish in this arena in Greenwich is so appropriate. A

:18:46.:18:55.
:18:56.:19:00.

And you can see how things can change so quickly, with

:19:00.:19:05.

Asadauskaite. The whole competition, Murray had a difficult ride and a

:19:05.:19:12.

difficult fence. So things can change through the day? Yes. You

:19:12.:19:18.

are right. What a difficult horse Spence had to ride. Not an awful

:19:18.:19:23.

lot she could do about it. 104 penalty points in the showjumping.

:19:23.:19:29.

I was worried for Sam Murray as well. She had eight seconds off the

:19:29.:19:34.

pace, but, my word, she has come through strongly. I am hoping we

:19:34.:19:39.

will grab a word with her as she comes through before going on to

:19:39.:19:47.

the final medal presentation. It is quite emotional! I might ask you to

:19:47.:19:51.

tap into your favourite moments. But if anybody can grab her, you

:19:51.:19:55.

can! I will be back with you shortly.

:19:55.:20:00.

So, 29 gold medals for Great Britain. It has been Alan pigs that

:20:00.:20:05.

has provided us with countless inspirational moments. -- it has

:20:05.:20:15.
:20:15.:20:26.

# I'm going to call that number, so far across the sea, # I wish I were

:20:26.:20:35.

in my land, that is where I want to # That is where I want to be.

:20:35.:20:44.

And it is great Britain's first gold medal of this Olympics!

:20:45.:20:50.

# Please don't you forget me, I am so in love with you.

:20:50.:20:56.

# It won't be long now, even though I know, # Eyes seemed to leave my

:20:56.:21:06.
:21:06.:21:06.

heart behind me every time I go. # I am going to call that numbers

:21:07.:21:15.

so far across the sea... You are an Olympic champion!

:21:15.:21:22.

Olympic gold! The crowd were absolutely incredible! This is what

:21:22.:21:27.

I have dreamt of my entire life! The look at the crowd, every seat

:21:27.:21:33.

is taken and it is filled with Union flags. I am just taken away.

:21:33.:21:37.

Unbelievable! It has just been an amazing experience. Just listening

:21:37.:21:47.
:21:47.:21:49.

to the crowd. # I am thinking of you, lover.

:21:49.:21:54.

# May be when it's over... Both Brownlee brothers on the Olympic

:21:54.:22:01.

podium. # I am going to call that number,

:22:01.:22:10.

so far across the sea. # It is where I want to be. They

:22:10.:22:16.

have gold! Farah is going to make it two gold medals for Great

:22:16.:22:26.
:22:26.:22:29.

Britain! What a ride by Trott! # It's where I want to be. I am

:22:29.:22:39.

just shocked. Everybody is supporting me so much. It has just

:22:39.:22:49.
:22:49.:22:50.

been the most unbelievable Emotional, exhilarating, heart

:22:50.:22:55.

warming. Plenty more of that coming up this evening, I promise you. But

:22:55.:23:00.

Clare has caught up with a final medallist, the silver medallist in

:23:00.:23:06.

the women's modern Pentathlon, Sam Gary Neville stop here is the

:23:06.:23:16.
:23:16.:23:18.

Finnistere list of London 2012. Sam at Murray. The final silver

:23:18.:23:24.

medallist. I am so pleased. My legs, I kept running, they kept running

:23:24.:23:30.

for me! Up the hills as well. They were so steeple stop and I just

:23:30.:23:36.

kept working so hard. This Games has inspired a generation. Just

:23:36.:23:41.

explain what you have done to get to here? Four years ago, I was

:23:41.:23:46.

still at school. I was training but by no means performing at

:23:46.:23:51.

international level. I went to the University of Bath in September

:23:51.:23:56.

2008 and that is when my coach, Emma, took me up. And since then I

:23:56.:24:00.

have just progressed through the ranks, made the team. And I made it

:24:00.:24:07.

to the Olympic Games. A lot of hard work. So, yeah, if you're goal,

:24:07.:24:13.

anything you want to achieve in life, don't let anybody get in your

:24:13.:24:20.

way because you can do it. Find the path you want in life and stick to

:24:20.:24:25.

wit and achieve it. I am a normal girl. Anybody can do anything they

:24:25.:24:34.

want to do! Auto fantastic message of. Thank you so much to everybody,

:24:34.:24:42.

UK Sport, my coach, all the squad. Everybody at the training village.

:24:42.:24:51.

My family, thank you, everybody. I love you all.

:24:51.:24:56.

You are right, Clare for Stockport a grim message. Athletes taking

:24:56.:25:06.
:25:06.:25:06.

what they have done. -- you are right, Clare, what a great message.

:25:06.:25:12.

What has encapsulated this for you? I think in terms of big messages, a

:25:12.:25:16.

lot of people seeing strong, powerful, competitive swimming

:25:17.:25:21.

through these Games. The message that, if you first don't succeed,

:25:21.:25:31.
:25:31.:25:38.

try, try again. But also the moment for its, -- for its comedy man U,

:25:38.:25:45.

Chad's dad. --, devalued. He was still hot with the paternal passion

:25:45.:25:54.

of success. The way he reacted to the shots of his son. For me that

:25:54.:25:57.

was a moment you don't get very often he and I think it connected

:25:57.:26:03.

with everybody. And think parents have made me cry more than anybody

:26:03.:26:07.

else, because the pride and joy they get out of seeing their

:26:07.:26:11.

children, knowing what they have done to get to here, it never fails

:26:11.:26:17.

to get the eyes watering ever-so- slightly! But, Clare, you have been

:26:17.:26:20.

at the heart of so many great moments and thank you so much. You

:26:20.:26:26.

will be here tonight with so many unsung heroes, the volunteers. And

:26:26.:26:29.

anybody who has a privileged come to any of the venues, the

:26:29.:26:33.

volunteers have been integral to making this such a successful Games.

:26:33.:26:39.

So you will be getting them on the telly later? Yes. A he it seems

:26:39.:26:44.

quite a long time ago Britain won its first gold medal of the Games.

:26:44.:26:48.

It was Helen Glover and Heather Stanning at Eton Dorney. The

:26:48.:26:52.

regatta was over and they had time on their hands, so they headed into

:26:52.:26:56.

town and Gary Richards caught up with them. And he was influential

:26:56.:27:06.
:27:06.:27:11.

enough to get them an appointment Olympic champions! They have pumped

:27:11.:27:19.

the air. They shake their heads. Great Britain have the Olympic

:27:19.:27:24.

champions and it could not have gone to two more worthy women. We

:27:24.:27:34.

So, you have not only won Britain's first gold medals of the Olympics

:27:34.:27:40.

but you also get a visit Buckingham Palace. This is so surreal. It has

:27:40.:27:46.

been brilliant! We're going through the front door as well, not the

:27:46.:27:53.

trade entrance. That is incredible. A real honour. It looks slightly

:27:53.:27:58.

different from this side. It is absolutely massive, isn't it?

:27:58.:28:02.

moment, when they put the gold medal around your neck, can you

:28:02.:28:07.

relive that for us? Well, I was crying like a baby and she was

:28:07.:28:10.

singing the national anthem at the top of her lungs! I was

:28:10.:28:16.

concentrating on not breaking down. But we were stood in front of our

:28:16.:28:22.

friends and family, right in front of us, just watching our flag go up

:28:22.:28:27.

as the national anthem played. It was amazing.

:28:27.:28:37.

This is the grand staircase, and, my goodness, it is grand. And this

:28:37.:28:41.

is where you would come if you were visiting a state occasion, a ball,

:28:41.:28:47.

for example. It is beautiful. wouldn't want to be the window-

:28:48.:28:57.

cleaner here! Don't know how you get to it! Your race, you lead from

:28:57.:29:02.

start to finish. That moment, what was it like? As good as you thought

:29:02.:29:08.

it would be? Yes, more. The moment we heard the cheering from the

:29:08.:29:13.

crowds, that is when we knew. It was phenomenal. All did you say to

:29:13.:29:19.

one another at that moment? Can you remember? -- what did you say?

:29:19.:29:28.

said, sorry, because she knocked my sunglasses off my head! I said, it

:29:28.:29:38.

is fine. But I kept saying, we have done it! I was in disbelief. These

:29:38.:29:41.

belonged to Queen Elizabeth and they would have been commissioned

:29:41.:29:45.

for the coronation of Her Majesty the Queen. And they would have been

:29:45.:29:51.

placed in Westminster Abbey. That reminds me of Only Fools and

:29:51.:29:59.

horses! That chandelier! Not a bad fireplace, is it? A chance to think

:29:59.:30:04.

and reflect about what you did. How much have you been doing that?

:30:04.:30:09.

catch pictures of ourselves or secrets on television. -- we catch

:30:09.:30:15.

a. A few quiet moments but not many. A bit of a whirlwind as well.

:30:15.:30:24.

you got a scrapbook? You ice, my parents gave -- yes, my parents

:30:24.:30:31.

gave me one but I think it has overflowed in the last few days!

:30:31.:30:40.

Thank you. And we see your medals? Of course you can. It is really

:30:40.:30:50.

heavy, isn't it? Were crying! as well. A fantastic song. It is

:30:50.:30:54.

the last one I listen to before we went out in the Olympics. I really

:30:54.:31:02.

like it. It was a really uplifting song, for the Queen and the

:31:02.:31:07.

Commonwealth. It gets you in the moment. It gives you a bit of

:31:07.:31:17.

something in the heart. Lots of gold in there! And people will want

:31:17.:31:20.

to keep on having a little look at their medals over the months and

:31:20.:31:25.

weeks ahead. No doubt, there are still celebrating. But there is

:31:25.:31:29.

another side to win in gold when all of hard work has paid off and

:31:30.:31:36.

the moment of triumph has passed. It is sometimes not the fairy-tale

:31:36.:31:40.

ending. The top of an Olympic podium is, in

:31:40.:31:45.

many ways, the ultimate destination in sport. It is the dream of

:31:45.:31:49.

millions and the privilege of just a tiny few. But it begs a question

:31:49.:31:56.

- what does winning gold actually feel like? You imagine life is

:31:56.:32:05.

going to be changed and you are going to be hugely rich and famous.

:32:05.:32:10.

It is. Everybody imagines it is. At a I didn't sleep for weeks. Weeks!

:32:10.:32:20.
:32:20.:32:26.

Perhaps we do mythologise what it is to win gold. We are seen getting

:32:26.:32:32.

to the top of the podium is like a fairy tale. Is human psychology

:32:32.:32:39.

quite so simple? I remember being chauffeured back in the bus to the

:32:39.:32:45.

athletes village. I did all my press conferences. I was thinking,

:32:45.:32:51.

what are you going to do now? You have done it. What are you going to

:32:51.:33:01.
:33:01.:33:01.

do now? That made me kind of a bit depressed. Fantastic. We had won.

:33:02.:33:08.

The whole world is moving on. There is another event coming and we have

:33:08.:33:16.

to go. You make no plans after your event finishes. For many sports

:33:16.:33:23.

people, winning gold is not just an occupational ambition, it is a

:33:23.:33:30.

motivation. Coaches demand nothing left -- less. Is it any wonder so

:33:30.:33:36.

many gold medal winners feel an overpowering sense of emptiness?

:33:36.:33:41.

Their entire life is wrapped up in getting this one thing. They

:33:41.:33:46.

believe this will be the answer. They need to get there. The lucky

:33:46.:33:51.

ones get there and find heard it is not. Then they looked in the right

:33:51.:33:57.

place to find satisfaction and happiness. It is not wrapped up in

:33:57.:34:02.

a gold medal. It does not mean all other aspects of your life are set

:34:02.:34:06.

and you are not going to have another problem in life. It is odd

:34:06.:34:12.

for me, having lost my face, to quote the Bible. Without vision,

:34:12.:34:17.

people perish. If you do not have something to lead you on, the

:34:17.:34:22.

journey finishes. Three hours after the race, I was in the Olympic

:34:22.:34:28.

village, on the end of my bed with my Olympic gold medal in my hand. I

:34:28.:34:36.

thought, that is it. I have done it. Winning is undeniably and publicly

:34:36.:34:42.

a highlight. It is as high as you can go up in almost any Olympic

:34:42.:34:48.

sport. Everything else will be down. A sense of anti-climax is not

:34:48.:34:53.

exclusive to sport. National lottery winners have talked about

:34:53.:34:59.

extreme lows after the initial high. Perhaps this is not a bad thing.

:34:59.:35:04.

Maybe a lull hopes -- helps to set someone up for the next challenge,

:35:04.:35:10.

the next summit. Maybe this is the ambition of so many great sports

:35:10.:35:14.

people - that they go for their next gold medal so soon after

:35:14.:35:20.

winning the last one. If you work euphoric for ever, it would be like

:35:20.:35:25.

having the best steak to eat. You pick your best meal but it is a

:35:25.:35:31.

curse to have that for the rest of your life. There is not a set way

:35:31.:35:38.

to react to victory or defeat. We respond differently. If athletes

:35:38.:35:43.

were to force a motion, that is the problem. Except how you feel at

:35:43.:35:49.

that moment. That is OK. If you have never achieved that great

:35:49.:35:55.

level of success, how you know how you feel? At one level, it is

:35:55.:36:00.

obvious that the gold medal is not a panacea for life itself. Just

:36:00.:36:05.

because an athlete is fantastic at sport, does not mean they will have

:36:05.:36:11.

all the answers that lie beyond the field of play. I cannot imagine

that I would not have just a little bit of a smile and a good feeling

:36:15.:36:21.

when I think about that moment when I won Olympic gold medal so. Does

:36:21.:36:27.

that make everything else in my life perfect? Absolutely not.

:36:27.:36:33.

of the greatest sportsmen look back with pride on the sending the top

:36:33.:36:39.

of the podium. Many others have expectations that simply cannot be

:36:39.:36:45.

met. If it is not a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, what is?

:36:46.:36:49.

What has been really fascinating in presenting the evening show is

:36:49.:36:54.

seeing some of the medallists coming in to make up almost hours

:36:54.:37:00.

after they have won their medals. For some, it is relief and others,

:37:00.:37:06.

joy. It depends on expectation. Tom Daley yesterday with the smile on

:37:06.:37:12.

his face. Michael Johnson was looking at him. He was speeding off

:37:12.:37:19.

that smile and tapping into his own emotions. -- feeding. It has been a

:37:20.:37:24.

privilege. The Olympic stadium is a hive of activity in preparation for

:37:24.:37:29.

tonight's closing ceremony. None of the bands are rehearsing at the

:37:29.:37:35.

moment. It is a veritable feast of British musical talent over the

:37:35.:37:40.

last 30 years. Outside, the queues are forming. They're getting ready

:37:40.:37:46.

to go in and have the taste of what is to come over the hours ahead.

:37:46.:37:51.

Danny Boyle earned worldwide praise for the unique opening ceremony.

:37:51.:38:01.
:38:01.:38:03.

The man who followed in that is Kym DA then. -- Gavin. I wanted to

:38:03.:38:09.

create a party. Music in our culture has been an amazing export.

:38:09.:38:15.

I have wanted to create a Symphony of British music. You have an

:38:15.:38:20.

unbeatable choice of music. How do you get that down to a smaller

:38:20.:38:26.

playlist? We started with a list of songs that we thought people were

:38:26.:38:30.

saying. One criteria was I wanted people to synch in the audience and

:38:30.:38:35.

have cameras seeing people sing along because they know the words.

:38:35.:38:42.

It would not be fair to call it a pop concert. It is more than that.

:38:42.:38:47.

We start with an amazing sequence, where we really do bring in

:38:47.:38:54.

probably a most busy cast right at the beginning. We have a London

:38:54.:38:59.

tunes event. Teens which resemble London and say where we are in the

:38:59.:39:05.

world. Then we move on to British music, culture and fashion.

:39:05.:39:10.

opening ceremony went down so well, it was really impressive. How much

:39:10.:39:15.

pressure does that put on you? woke up the following day and

:39:15.:39:22.

thought, it is me next. The pressure was on Dani. No one knew

:39:22.:39:28.

how the Games would go. Everyone was hoping for a great spirit. Of

:39:28.:39:32.

course there was a pressure. The biggest pressure was getting into

:39:32.:39:35.

the stadium when the sport has finished and trying to put

:39:36.:39:43.

something together. I feel the show is very exciting. I am excited

:39:43.:39:47.

watching. It is important to tell viewers that they will enjoy the

:39:47.:39:50.

music but there are important elements coming up after the

:39:50.:39:55.

musical section. It makes the ceremony at a ceremony and what it

:39:55.:40:01.

is. I have always wanted to make sure that we did not try to steam

:40:01.:40:08.

roll those bits. At the end, it is the extinguishing of the flame. I

:40:08.:40:14.

think that was probably one of my starting points. I wanted to make

:40:14.:40:18.

that a really great moment. At the time when I started to create that,

:40:18.:40:27.

I knew what the idea was. This wonderful flame, that is now a

:40:27.:40:33.

fantastic piece of engineering, I thought, that is very exciting.

:40:33.:40:38.

When I saw the idea of the design, I thought you really do need to

:40:38.:40:43.

make this moment. We have created a special moment and his special

:40:43.:40:49.

artist to be part of that. It will be a great show. We will wrap up

:40:49.:40:54.

the rest of today's medal. It is their medals ceremony over in

bronze medal in the World Championships at Rome in May. Now

:42:17.:42:24.

she is an Olympic silver medallist. What a collection already at the

age of 22! She has worked so hard. The team behind her, we have to

give credit to the whole team. The performance of director and coach.

:44:55.:45:00.

Congratulations to Britain's latest modern pentathlon medallist. The

:45:00.:45:08.

medal run continues with Samantha Murray at London 2012. That was the

:45:08.:45:14.

last Murdoch of the day. The last boxing gold to be given away here

:45:14.:45:20.

was the super heavyweight category. Anthony Joshua had never even laced

:45:20.:45:30.
:45:30.:45:32.

up a bluff four years ago. Today the winner takes all. -- a bluff.

:45:32.:45:42.
:45:42.:45:44.

The names go on and on, or in this division. -- all. The opening bell

:45:44.:45:50.

to determine the final gold medal in the Olympic boxing tournament.

:45:50.:45:54.

We're in the super-heavyweight division between the man wearing

:45:54.:46:01.

red representing Italy, the reigning defending her Olympic

:46:01.:46:07.

super-heavyweight champion, against the man in blue colour competing in

:46:07.:46:13.

his first Olympic Games book stub seeded number eight two in the

:46:13.:46:21.

tournament, Anthony Joshua. -- first Olympic Games. Anthony Joshua

:46:21.:46:28.

prevailed securing the most significant victory in the history

:46:28.:46:32.

of British Amateur Boxing en route to his World Championship silver.

:46:32.:46:41.

Style wise, this could be perfect for Anthony Joshua. That punch is

:46:41.:46:47.

very important. Get a few points on the board and get the Italian to

:46:47.:46:54.

come forward. He will come on to the right hand. Mid, at long range

:46:54.:47:00.

boxing and nothing else. A victory over him was at the quarter-final

:47:00.:47:07.

stage in Azerbaijan last year. This is the final bout of the Olympic

:47:07.:47:11.

boxing tournament. It will determine the destination of the

:47:12.:47:15.

Olympic super-heavyweight gold medal. Which go to Great Britain or

:47:15.:47:25.
:47:25.:47:32.

might have beaten me before, but you will not be me here. But this

:47:32.:47:42.
:47:42.:47:43.

deepens his belief, his self- confidence. The desire is all there.

:47:43.:47:48.

Could double right hand from Joshua. Snaps the head sideways of Roberto

:47:48.:47:57.

Cammarelle. That's what he has got to do. He has got to throw more

:47:57.:48:01.

jabs and keep the movement going, because that is confusing Roberto

:48:01.:48:10.

Cammarelle. It will make clever bit easier if he comes into it. -- make

:48:10.:48:18.

life a bit easier. And he is using that jab from none other than

:48:18.:48:24.

Lennox Lewis. The champion in Seoul of 1988. Joshua is trying to fight

:48:24.:48:29.

back now but he has been rocked by a quick-fire combination from the

:48:29.:48:36.

reigning Olympic champion, Roberto Cammarelle. Joshua, his work

:48:36.:48:40.

getting a bit ragged towards the final bell at the end of that first

:48:40.:48:46.

round. And perhaps that flurry of success for shots from Roberto

:48:46.:48:54.

Cammarelle was enough to give him a one-point advantage. He leads by 6-

:48:54.:49:02.

5 over Joshua. STUDIO: Well, and he Joshua was

:49:02.:49:06.

behind in the second round as well. We start this at the third. --

:49:06.:49:16.
:49:16.:49:26.

and his opponent, Anthony Joshua, just 22 years of age, and this man

:49:26.:49:31.

has made a meteoric rise through the ranks of boxing. And he finds

:49:31.:49:36.

himself competing on the grandest stage of all. Being cheered on by

:49:36.:49:41.

the crowd but he finds himself trailing by three as we enter the

:49:41.:49:46.

third of final-round of what is the biggest fight of his life bar none.

:49:46.:49:53.

And he has got a target now as Roberto Cammarelle comes forward.

:49:53.:49:57.

And that shot into the midriff of Roberto Cammarelle. That is what

:49:57.:50:03.

you should be practising. He has got to work again. Drives Roberto

:50:03.:50:09.

Cammarelle back to the far corner. He tries to bring him back to the

:50:09.:50:15.

centre of the ring. The referee asking both boxers to move away.

:50:15.:50:19.

That work being done at close quarters will favour Roberto

:50:19.:50:26.

Cammarelle. And now the two fight is engaging in a rather untidy

:50:26.:50:35.

exchange, and you suspect this contest is becoming tricky in this

:50:35.:50:43.

final round. Moore left hand success from Joshua. As we passed

:50:43.:50:47.

the halfway mark of this final round. It is important he moves his

:50:47.:50:51.

feet now, Joshua. Because his opponent will be looking to move

:50:51.:50:57.

around the left and side and that gives him the space to punch again.

:50:57.:51:07.

For -- left hand side. We approach the final minute and there of three

Olympic champions in attendance today at this excelled centre. In

:51:13.:51:23.

the Docklands. -- at the ExCel Centre. Anthony Joshua is trying to

:51:23.:51:30.

emulate them. But he was trailing by three coming into this third and

:51:30.:51:37.

final round. The boxers are exchanging misses at the moment.

:51:37.:51:42.

has got to work hard on the inside. This is really close now. That is

:51:42.:51:47.

better, though. Roberto Cammarelle appears to be feeling the pace. He

:51:47.:51:51.

has had a difficult tournament and this is a spirited rally from

:51:51.:51:57.

Anthony Joshua. It brings a great response, as you would expect, from

:51:57.:52:01.

a great champion like Roberto Cammarelle. He is the got medleys

:52:01.:52:06.

from Beijing four years ago. And as the closing bell sounds, Anthony

:52:06.:52:10.

Joshua raises his hands immediately because he feels he has done enough

:52:10.:52:15.

to overturn the man in the red corner. Roberto Cammarelle. And

:52:15.:52:20.

prevent him from successfully defending his title. But there is

:52:20.:52:22.

jubilation in the Italian corner because they feel their man has

:52:22.:52:26.

just made history by successfully defending his super-heavyweight

:52:26.:52:30.

gold medal after a really hard fought super-heavyweight final.

:52:30.:52:40.
:52:40.:52:41.

Yeah. I think he won the last round, Anthony Joshua. It was a better

:52:41.:52:45.

last round for him. A good right hand there with the left. He feels

:52:46.:52:55.
:52:56.:52:58.

he has done enough. Very, very but just look at the response in

:52:58.:53:05.

the Italian corner. They are dancing. At the end of the round,

:53:05.:53:09.

in recognition of the sterling work he feels his mum produced, Anthony

:53:09.:53:15.

Joshua raised his hands immediately as well. -- he feels his man

:53:15.:53:25.
:53:25.:53:25.

produced. The decision will be decided by the five judges ringside.

:53:25.:53:32.

And they give the verdict... Ladies and gentlemen, the judges scored it

:53:32.:53:37.

level and 18 points apiece. The winner and the super heavyweight

:53:37.:53:46.

champion, in the blue corner, Anthony Joshua! Anthony Joshua is

:53:46.:53:50.

the Olympic super-heavyweight champion! A wonderful achievement

:53:50.:53:56.

by this 22-year-old from Finchley in North London. He has overturned,

:53:56.:54:02.

once again, the defending Super heavyweight champion. The second

:54:02.:54:06.

victory is enjoyed over Roberto Cammarelle. And what it means is

:54:06.:54:11.

that on the grander stage of all, this powerful young super-

:54:11.:54:16.

heavyweight has just scaled the heights to be crowned the Olympic

:54:16.:54:25.

super-heavyweight champion. -- on the grandest stage of all. This, in

:54:25.:54:28.

celebration, of the crowd who cheered him on to a hard fought

:54:28.:54:35.

victory. STUDIO: Well done, Anthony Joshua.

:54:35.:54:45.
:54:45.:54:46.

Andy started boxing four years ago. The Italian made an appeal but it

:54:46.:54:56.
:54:56.:55:00.

was overturned, and that means the 65 medals in total. The United

:55:00.:55:07.

States' top of the lot. China 38 golds. Australia just make the

:55:07.:55:16.

John McEnroe has been an invaluable member of the team here but he has

:55:16.:55:21.

also been doing work for NBC. Arguably one of the biggest

:55:21.:55:31.
:55:31.:55:37.

characters of this Games, Usain vulnerable again today? Usain Bolt

:55:37.:55:43.

is coming along. It is Tyson Gay. It is Bolt! Usain Bolt explodes and

:55:43.:55:52.

he is still the king of the 100 Una Elvis Presley? He is like the

:55:52.:55:59.

American Bob Marley. -- you know? And every time he turned, everybody

:55:59.:56:03.

took a picture with the cameras. And I saw that in the 200. You have

:56:03.:56:09.

got to be aware of that? Yes. It is funny. Every move you make,

:56:10.:56:19.
:56:20.:56:27.

Was it like when you won the 200? lot of people were doubting me this

:56:27.:56:32.

season so I was really focused on going out and doing it. One-sided

:56:32.:56:39.

that, I thought, you can stop talking now. -- once I did that. I

:56:39.:56:47.

am a legend. Usain Bolt is second. That is a big

:56:47.:56:56.

win for Yohan Blake. Muhammad Ali had something he called the Roper

:56:56.:57:02.

dope. And that was like at the Jamaican trials for you? T I went

:57:02.:57:06.

there does to qualified and my training partner, Yohan Blake, were

:57:06.:57:12.

cut me up and said, this is the Olympics, you need to get serious.

:57:12.:57:22.

-- he woke me up. I think your idol was Michael Johnson. Michael Phelps

:57:22.:57:32.
:57:32.:57:34.

was in the mix. So many champions. But you are there? Yes. Definitely.

:57:34.:57:37.

These guys were the greatest in their sport and they have done so

:57:37.:57:42.

many great things over the years, so for me to be mentioned in the

:57:42.:57:49.

same sentence is just amazing. is just a joy, and as we be due

farewell, the sport is now over and the Closing Ceremony is almost upon

to Tom Daley as he held his nerve and won one of the closest diving

:58:16.:58:20.

finals. The tears of Chris Hoy, the laughter of Laura Trott. As a

nation, we are so proud of our Olympians as they have given all of
