title. They eased through their heat to reach Thursdays semi-finals.

But it was a disappointing morning for British judo. Danny Williams

and Sarah Clark lost their belts and are now out of the competition.

-- bouts. Already a very dramatic morning. This is how the afternoon

:02:29.:02:34.

looks. In a moment will go -- we will grow to Greenwich for the

:02:34.:02:39.

three-day eventing. There's been a great performance by Nicola Wilson

:02:39.:02:49.
:02:49.:02:58.

Let's start with the eventing. It has been a really tense first

:02:58.:03:02.

couple of days with very little split in the field. Before we go to

:03:02.:03:09.

Greenwich, some of you might find Eventing is an equestrian

:03:09.:03:17.

competition made up of three different elements. Dressage.

:03:17.:03:23.

Cross-country. And showjumping. Eventing developed as a military

:03:23.:03:26.

exercise designed to reflect the range of challenges horses faced in

:03:26.:03:31.

the army. To win the competition, riders had to accumulate the

:03:31.:03:36.

minimum amount of penalty points. The individual and team

:03:36.:03:39.

competitions take place simultaneously. Riders compete on

:03:39.:03:45.

the same horse in each of the three elements. Teams are made up of five

:03:46.:03:49.

riders with the best three total scores counting towards the team's

:03:49.:03:55.

final total. The medallists in the eventing team competition by

:03:55.:04:01.

decided during the first round of the showjumping. The top 25

:04:01.:04:05.

competitors proceed to the second round of the showjumping, where the

:04:05.:04:09.

medallists in the individual competition are decided. If you

:04:19.:04:20.

would like to get involved in That is the education, now for the

:04:20.:04:23.

entertainment. Yesterday the horses discipline was tested in the

:04:24.:04:27.

dressage, tomorrow at their speed and agility is under the microscope

:04:27.:04:32.

in the jumping, today it is endurance in cross-country. It is

:04:32.:04:35.

one of the tightest Olympic competitions ever with Great

Britain currently sitting third in the team event, Mary King is the

:04:39.:04:45.

best place British rider in 12th. After Royal Greenwich now a Zara

:04:45.:04:50.

Phillips is riding just after 3pm. It is a wonderful location with

:04:50.:04:54.

views over the Thames and towards St Paul's Cathedral. The

:04:54.:04:58.

competition is so close, any time penalties could be very costly

:04:58.:05:03.

indeed. 10 minutes until Mary is under way so let's join Ian Stark

:05:03.:05:13.
:05:13.:05:17.

Australia. He was on 45.4. He has already had two lives. He is

:05:17.:05:22.

finding it quite slippery. He nearly fell as he turned into the

:05:22.:05:28.

first water. He had a heart- stopping moment in the second water,

:05:28.:05:37.

but he is now in the Greenwich Para drop. Making nothing of that. He is

:05:37.:05:47.
:05:47.:05:53.

still clear. How is he on the on the course. Huge crowds

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

supporting the teams. Makes nothing of that water. This is rider number

:06:06.:06:15.

two for Germany. This is the horse that won the big French four-star,

:06:15.:06:23.

a top event. We are hearing of a loose horse in the start terrier.

:06:23.:06:27.

Whether that is a faller, we will have to wait and see, or whether it

:06:27.:06:31.

is very close to where the horses are taken for the start and finish.

:06:31.:06:41.
:06:41.:06:43.

There it is. Is it Sam's course? Sam Griffiths? It might be. He he

:06:44.:06:50.

was just coming to the flat ground at the top when we last saw him.

:06:50.:07:00.
:07:00.:07:10.

What drama has happened on the Extraordinary that they both had to

:07:10.:07:13.

stop at fence three. It makes you wonder if the line they were

:07:13.:07:19.

planning to ride was feasible. The riders will probably have to go out

:07:19.:07:25.

and have another look. He got away with it, but a bit of a late

:07:25.:07:35.
:07:35.:07:44.

Burton's time. He had had a stop as well so that would have wasted a

:07:44.:07:50.

lot of time. It is a very good point to see on the course. He the

:07:50.:08:00.
:08:00.:08:05.

Frenchman now comes to the second there all day so far, dare I say it.

:08:05.:08:15.
:08:15.:08:31.

He is on 39.8, one of the top leading team, but is also the

:08:32.:08:36.

trainer of the leading Japanese individual rider overnight ever

:08:36.:08:46.
:08:46.:08:46.

dressage. -- after dressage. Still awaiting news of some Griffiths. I

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

have a feeling it might have been sunlight, there are several dark

:09:05.:09:08.

areas on this course which will make it a little bit more difficult

:09:08.:09:14.

for the horse. Fear anything from that point of view is that the

:09:14.:09:18.

horses have been here for a wig and they have been walking about and

:09:18.:09:28.
:09:28.:09:38.

getting used to these shadows of up We are running about 15 minutes

:09:38.:09:43.

late. Mary King will come later than scheduled, somewhere after

:09:43.:09:49.

tomb topped -- 2:15pm. The Frenchman is that the most

:09:49.:09:55.

beautiful end of this park. Sumps super rose gardens of there. Some

:09:55.:10:05.
:10:05.:10:11.

lot of people were wondering if they would get an extra stride in.

:10:11.:10:15.

In fact, the horses are so opened up, if anything they are finding

:10:15.:10:25.

the distance quite short. This is the German. A little bit of a

:10:25.:10:32.

hiccup into the approach of that fence, but he sat a beautifully.

:10:32.:10:37.

The interesting thing, we've not had any news of Sam Moa Griffiths.

:10:37.:10:43.

Frankly, we've got to believe that he has had a fall for topped and

:10:43.:10:53.
:10:53.:10:54.

that he is out. That is a Bikey Cup for Australia. Do -- a big hiccup

:10:54.:11:04.
:11:04.:11:13.

Thomsen went round, he added 26 to his score. Correction, 5.2 to his

:11:13.:11:19.

score. We can now confirm that Sam Griffiths has been eliminated. I'm

:11:19.:11:28.

sure that is because of a fall. That is dramatic news. Australia

:11:28.:11:31.

with five here. That round of Christopher Burton's could well be

:11:31.:11:39.

crucial. Sam Griffiths is out and it will be Andrew Hoy and Lucinda -

:11:39.:11:45.

- Clayton Fredericks that Australian fate will depend on.

:11:45.:11:51.

not terribly sure that he is necessarily be up on the clock. It

:11:51.:11:55.

will be interesting when he comes into the arena. He's in a lovely

:11:55.:11:59.

rhythm, but he doesn't it like he's going that fast, but it could be

:11:59.:12:09.
:12:09.:12:10.

deceptive. Over the East End flour built by Andrew Hunter. He ran the

:12:10.:12:17.

British country... A way goes if a clerk for Ireland. She will not

:12:17.:12:26.

hang about. Just getting fat picture of Australians and

:12:26.:12:32.

Griffiths. He had a fall at fence 21. One of the very simple fences,

:12:32.:12:42.
:12:42.:12:54.

dare I say. Not dissimilar to the We will get an idea of his time. He

:12:54.:13:00.

was quick enough through the arena. This is the Frenchman finessing.

:13:01.:13:10.
:13:11.:13:22.

39.6. That includes a refusal. The cool surroundings to of the

:13:22.:13:32.
:13:32.:13:42.

seconds slower than Christopher Burton been the main arena. He will

:13:42.:13:46.

have to be able to gallop on at the end if he is going to make up that

:13:46.:13:51.

time. I reckon he will be another one with some time penalties. It is

:13:51.:13:56.

not really what the German team were looking for. Peter Thomsen is

:13:56.:14:01.

home safe and dry. They really need to get some horses closer to the

:14:01.:14:11.
:14:11.:14:12.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 60 seconds

:14:12.:15:12.

crucial. Sit back and let the horse married to Simon Clark. By she is

:15:12.:15:21.

nicely through. She is 31 years old. The horse is 12 years old. 48.9

:15:21.:15:28.

dressage. Now back with Dirk. on this great galloping stretch at

:15:28.:15:32.

the top and the horse looks like he has quickened up. It is whether he

:15:32.:15:42.
:15:42.:15:42.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 60 seconds

:15:42.:16:24.

has the stamina to keep up the think he is. It was such a great

:16:24.:16:28.

shot of seeing a horse galloping under the trees. It is what cross

:16:28.:16:37.

country is all about. In 2009 in the Europeans and then in the

:16:37.:16:40.

world's in 2010, the Germans had some mistakes on some fairly easy

:16:40.:16:47.

fences. Dirk Schrade playing quite safe, making sure he didn't make a

:16:47.:16:51.

mistake as he now goes to the rose garden and jumps that very well.

:16:51.:17:01.
:17:01.:17:23.

best performer in the dressage. Owned by the very popular Terry and

:17:23.:17:33.
:17:33.:17:55.

to go inside the time on this to me if he's going to get some

:17:55.:18:02.

time faults. Although he is making time, he's still got this Saxon

:18:02.:18:12.
:18:12.:18:19.

Awad has had a fall at fence three and a horse has gone spare. We

:18:19.:18:29.
:18:29.:18:38.

Germany are beginning to be in a situation where they could be

:18:38.:18:43.

caught. I think you are right. It is putting a huge amount of

:18:43.:18:47.

pressure on the final three rider macros, because they're going to

:18:47.:18:55.

have to come up with the goods and get as near round possible -- as

:18:55.:19:04.

possible. For Ireland, Clark. She was very cautious at that fence

:19:04.:19:14.
:19:14.:19:29.

their rather than the three. She Christopher Burton, so this looks

:19:29.:19:37.

like a pretty impressive round so far for the Irish team. The time of

:19:37.:19:43.

Christopher Burton is remarkable. There is Bennett-Awad. What

:19:43.:19:53.
:19:53.:19:54.

disappointment for her. This is a thoroughbred mare out on the course.

:19:54.:20:04.
:20:04.:20:12.

Sadly, when he scored it will be none braver than this lady. Didn't

:20:12.:20:16.

get a great line there. That's a dangerous thing to do. She was very

:20:16.:20:21.

aware of that offence. She wanted to be straight and let the horse

:20:21.:20:31.
:20:31.:20:48.

see the step out, and she even we thought was going to be required

:20:48.:20:52.

for this course. There was a test event earlier this year and

:20:52.:20:56.

everyone came away saying they wanted fit, Little, athletic horses

:20:56.:21:06.
:21:06.:21:06.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 60 seconds

:21:06.:22:21.

that could be easily controlled. She is delighted. 3.6 penalties.

:22:21.:22:29.

But an exceptional round. That will please the Irish coach. It

:22:29.:22:34.

certainly will. Ireland, who didn't qualify as a team here, they just

:22:34.:22:39.

missed out in the Europeans by a matter of a few points. Not to

:22:39.:22:42.

qualify as a team so they had qualified enough riders, they had

:22:42.:22:51.

to qualify five. As a result, they've got a very competitive team.

:22:51.:22:55.

Certainly as competitive as they had for many years. There is Simon

:22:55.:22:59.

Clark alongside her, her husband. He will be delighted. He is a

:22:59.:23:04.

helicopter pilot. He takes famous people all around the country. He

:23:04.:23:12.

took Lord Coe to an Olympic meeting very recently. As you can see,

:23:12.:23:17.

competition delay that the moment for that four of Bennett-Awad. The

:23:17.:23:24.

control of this competition at the start and finish, it is quite a

:23:24.:23:29.

complex affair but it's very well done. The team up there are very

:23:29.:23:34.

experienced, headed by Richard Clapham and others. Richard has

:23:34.:23:40.

controlled two Olympic games prior to this. But it's got to be a good

:23:40.:23:44.

communication system that immediately takes decisions and the

:23:44.:23:47.

appropriate actions to get the right people in the right place, to

:23:47.:23:53.

make sure horse and rider macro are looked after to the very highest

:23:53.:23:59.

possible standard. We don't know how many people are in here but it

:23:59.:24:09.
:24:09.:24:12.

could well be around the maximum could well be around the maximum

:24:12.:24:19.

A mention their of the 50,000 people all standing around watching

:24:20.:24:24.

the dramatic action, and it was dramatic. Horses having problems,

:24:24.:24:28.

competitors being thrown off and the competition delayed. As soon as

:24:28.:24:32.

it gets going we will let you know. We will be over there because Mary

:24:32.:24:36.

King is going this afternoon and Zara Phillips as well. You can see

:24:36.:24:40.

that with us here later. We are going to get an update on the

:24:40.:24:46.

sailing in a few moments. Before that, just how much of a difference

:24:46.:24:56.
:24:56.:24:59.

even in the winter, because you met your friends, there was lots of

:24:59.:25:04.

adventures, you could sail to the island or role. It was a great kind

:25:04.:25:10.

of Swallows and Amazons place, we have a lot of fun. I wasn't

:25:10.:25:15.

brilliant at school sport. But with sailing it was different, I

:25:15.:25:19.

instantly found something I loved. I think I was that sort of child

:25:20.:25:23.

that if I found something I really enjoyed, I wanted to get better and

:25:23.:25:30.

better at it. I remember the first time going on the boat on my own,

:25:30.:25:34.

attached with a rope. And then when the rope was eventually taken off,

:25:34.:25:39.

that amazing sense of freedom you get. I couldn't have gone on a bus

:25:39.:25:43.

on my own or a train. I could only cycle round the block where the

:25:43.:25:48.

lift. But there was an incredible responsibility and sense of freedom

:25:48.:25:53.

to sail all by yourself. It's lovely that nothing's really

:25:53.:26:00.

changed. One weekend the club organised proper instruction. They

:26:00.:26:06.

came from the Royal Yachting Association. At the end of that

:26:06.:26:10.

weekend I could steerer boat or by myself. It was a real turning point

:26:10.:26:17.

for me because I suddenly realised, actually, I can do this, I can sail

:26:17.:26:21.

on my own. I don't think I ever really sailed with my dad every

:26:21.:26:24.

game since then. I remember the other end of the Lockerbie miles

:26:25.:26:33.

away. It was like an ocean. Now it's just there. With no money or

:26:33.:26:38.

funding, sport was really different then. No coaching either. It was

:26:38.:26:42.

hard but I knew that I had to dedicate everything to make this

:26:42.:26:52.
:26:52.:26:55.

Robinson. That smile, doesn't that just say it all! Shirley Robinson

:26:55.:27:00.

has the gold for Great Britain. was incredible. Shirley Robinson,

:27:00.:27:04.

gold medal for Stam I can't really believe it myself. If I watch it

:27:05.:27:12.

now, it's sort of weird it happened to me. What a moment this is for

:27:12.:27:18.

Shirley Robinson. Here we are where I grew up, just a very small family

:27:18.:27:24.

club, this is where it all began. That is a big grin! A very happy

:27:24.:27:34.
:27:34.:27:51.

Wonderful. Born in Dundee, 32 years later voted as the greatest female

:27:51.:27:54.

sailor in the world. Lets joined Shirley right now, doing what she

:27:55.:27:59.

does best, bobbing up and down on a boat somewhere off the Jurassic

:27:59.:28:03.

Coast for us usually, but today she is looking a bit calmer, she is not

:28:03.:28:08.

out on the water. Shirley, when you are out on the water now watching

:28:08.:28:12.

those boats competing, how do you feel as a double Olympic champion

:28:12.:28:16.

to be watching? You feel their nerves and stress. You know how

:28:16.:28:21.

important it is to them. When they have a tough race it sort of gets

:28:21.:28:25.

too deep inside. You feel the elation when they do well. It means

:28:25.:28:29.

everything to all the competitors at the Olympic Games. I know how

:28:29.:28:36.

much it means to them. A lifetime's work. Lots of empathy. Living and

:28:36.:28:40.

breathing the whole experience with them through the week. Particularly

:28:40.:28:43.

the young sailors out there, do they see you as something of a

:28:43.:28:47.

mother figure in a few ways, do they ask for advice and help about

:28:47.:28:51.

how to approach an Olympic Games from someone who has been there and

:28:51.:28:57.

done it and been so successful? Some do but there's -- they are so

:28:57.:29:01.

much more professional and experience. Take Hannah Mills,

:29:01.:29:05.

she's only 24 but has been racing at the very highest level since she

:29:05.:29:09.

was 10, 11, 12 years old. She's got plenty of experience and doesn't

:29:09.:29:13.

need that much advice from me. Let's talk about what's been

:29:13.:29:17.

happening on the water today. I'm sure there has been a great British

:29:17.:29:20.

contingent cheering them on, because there's been more than just

:29:20.:29:25.

Ben Ainslie looking to defend his title today. It's been hectic. We

:29:25.:29:30.

have to be managing to keep up. Ben has just started his third race.

:29:30.:29:35.

He's got two more races today. He was struggling when I heard last,

:29:35.:29:39.

he hadn't had the best start and was caught up in the pack. The case

:29:39.:29:44.

that he has his incredible downwind speed. So often you see him catch

:29:45.:29:52.

up. First up in the Daily it was the fastest boats here, they fly on

:29:52.:29:57.

top of the water. Stevie Morrison and Ben Rhodes didn't have the best

:29:57.:30:02.

start. They really struggled in the first race. In the next race they

:30:02.:30:06.

were up among state. They had a bad leg, dropped down to 12. A hard

:30:06.:30:12.

start for them. There -- but in the 49s, they have a lot of races

:30:12.:30:17.

before they get to that final. Plenty more to go. In the Laser

:30:17.:30:22.

class, Paul Goodison looking to class, Paul Goodison looking to

:30:22.:30:25.

defend, how did he do? Pretty good. There are 49 of them, so it's very

:30:25.:30:29.

hard to get your own waves and a bit of freedom to make your own

:30:29.:30:32.

decisions. But he managed to get free of the pack eventually and

:30:32.:30:37.

finished 7th. Everybody is predicting a duel between him and

:30:37.:30:43.

the Australian. He did extremely well, second in the first race.

:30:43.:30:46.

Everyone is expecting that big battle, Australia versus Great

:30:46.:30:56.
:30:56.:31:02.

going in their third and fourth races. What do you expect from

:31:02.:31:07.

them? They will have fire in their belly. Yesterday a tenth and a

:31:07.:31:12.

photo finish, just got second, pipped by the Brazilians. Everyone

:31:12.:31:20.

is predicting a Clash Of The Titans between these two teams. The breeze

:31:20.:31:24.

:31:29.:31:35.

some pictures of him. How would you rate how he has performed so far?

:31:35.:31:44.

Not just today? Solid. Two second places yesterday. He was beaten by

:31:44.:31:49.

Hogh-Christensen twice. He will be consistent this week. He will be

:31:49.:31:53.

looking for two more solid results. He did not seem that stressed about

:31:53.:31:59.

it yesterday. He was pretty happy with his performance. Today he will

:31:59.:32:03.

just be looking to consolidate on that. In the Finn class, they will

do 10 races and then a medal race. A lot of sailing left in Weymouth

A lot of sailing left in Weymouth for Ben Ainslie. Consistency is K.

Thank you very much. The thank you feel story earlier as well. If you

were tuning in expecting to see some equestrian, today is the cross

country, in Greenwich. Usually the cross-country takes up such a wide

:32:30.:32:34.

area that they have to perform a long way away from the Olympic Park.

:32:34.:32:37.

But it is happening just a couple of miles from here. But at the

:32:37.:32:43.

moment it is not happening at all. They estimated Bath -- 50,000

:32:43.:32:47.

people are watching the action, but the competition is suspended at the

:32:47.:32:53.

moment. Let's talk about David Florence and Richie Hamilton. They

:32:53.:32:58.

are going in the C2 doubles. It was their first run today. Let's see

:32:58.:33:02.

their first run today. Let's see how they did in the first heat.

:33:02.:33:08.

A massive cheer has just gone up in this Lee Valley White Water Centre.

:33:08.:33:15.

Union flags are flying high. Fils is the reason why. David Florence

:33:15.:33:20.

partnered by Richard Hounslow. They know this course probably better

:33:20.:33:26.

than a lot of fellow competitors. David qualified for the semi-finals

:33:26.:33:30.

of the C one competition yesterday. Richard Hounslow, the semi-finals

:33:30.:33:34.

of the K1 competition. But how are they going to operate as a

:33:34.:33:41.

partnership? David Florence goes for Great Britain along with his

:33:41.:33:47.

partner Richard Hounslow. They are going for broke. You can see then

:33:47.:33:57.
:33:57.:33:58.

slide down into the first gate. Quickly accelerating. They have to

:33:58.:34:06.

set it up for 6, 7 and 8. Both incredibly strong men. Both

:34:06.:34:10.

incredibly confident paddlers, albeit at slightly different

:34:10.:34:16.

disciplines. They have come together well in the C2 category.

:34:16.:34:22.

Very strong at the front, David Florence. Complimented superbly by

:34:22.:34:27.

Richard Hounslow at the back. will look to line up their boat

:34:27.:34:37.
:34:37.:34:38.

into 12. They decided to do has been. A two second penalty. Now

:34:38.:34:46.

they will set up the boat for the next sequence. Pull the nose around

:34:46.:34:50.

and back down. That looked pretty good. Neither of them go off to a

:34:50.:34:54.

good start yesterday, but both of them came through strongly in their

:34:54.:34:59.

second runs. If they get a good run here, the pressure may be off for

:34:59.:35:05.

the second run and they may go even quicker. Four penalty. So far. Two

:35:05.:35:09.

British pairs in this qualifying competition. The second pair come

:35:09.:35:13.

later. That was a touch by David Florence. Six penalty points for

:35:13.:35:21.

Great Britain. One Moorgate to go. They are in nicely. Am for pushing

:35:21.:35:30.

hard all the way to the finish line. 1:0 8.23. 5th place. That would be

:35:30.:35:34.

a qualifying position if that remained the same throughout the

:35:34.:35:37.

competition, but I guess you have to anticipate that some teams will

:35:37.:35:42.

go faster than that on the second run. How would you clarify what has

:35:42.:35:47.

just happened? A slightly nervous start? Perhaps. They found

:35:48.:35:51.

themselves off line on a number of occasions. Richard had to duck into

:35:51.:35:59.

a couple of the gates. I think they will look to go away and check out

:35:59.:36:02.

the video and see how they can fine-tune those errors they made to

David Florence only just made it to the semi-finals in the C1 and they

:36:14.:36:19.

have their second run a little bit later today. You can see that and

:36:19.:36:24.

plenty of other sport right across the BBC. Was an Lee Valley looking

:36:24.:36:27.

wonderful in the sunshine? Wimbledon is not looking bad either.

:36:27.:36:32.

It is so special to have Wimbledon at the heart of the Olympics. It is

:36:32.:36:35.

so special for Laura Robson to be cheered on by a partisan British

Plenty of action right across the BBC, right across London, right

:36:55.:37:05.
:37:05.:37:12.

across the country for these 2012 Such a big last game. Laura Robson

:37:12.:37:17.

had been 5-1 up and serving for the set, 30-0 up and served a double

:37:17.:37:23.

and she then lost 10 points in a ride. Pressure is back on the

:37:23.:37:33.
:37:33.:37:57.

Both players playing well right now. A change from raucous support of

:37:57.:38:01.

the crowd and sudden silence when they are playing. A bit of tension

:38:01.:38:11.
:38:11.:38:49.

Couldn't put a foot wrong at the start of this match, Robson. A

against Robson's number 96. Petr Martis chat to pull out injured.

:39:27.:39:31.

Debut Olympics for Robson. I've been thrilled for her and the

:39:31.:39:36.

tremendous support she has had from the crowd. But it also adds

:39:36.:39:46.

pressure on her. This is not your He hopefully it will help her in

handers around in the game, although there are suddenly a few

more left-handers around in the women's game, two lefties playing

:40:21.:40:47.

She had an important point, she had a short ball like that on her serve

:40:47.:40:52.

and missed it. Laura just have to be a little bit more alert to

:40:52.:41:02.
:41:02.:41:20.

That is the way you take advantage of a short ball. You have to see it

:41:21.:41:24.

coming short and be there in good time. That is what you are looking

for as a tennis player, a short A lot of attention on there right

A chance, but missed. Tension grows. An impressive point from Laura

Robson with so much pressure on her. She resisted the temptation to go

:43:32.:43:42.
:43:42.:43:46.

It is a Fed Cup atmosphere. Safarova played in the final of the

:43:46.:43:56.
:43:56.:44:01.

Fed Cup last year for the Czechs. Safarova has really got herself up

:44:01.:44:06.

to number 23 in the world, she has had some good scalps this year.

:44:06.:44:16.
:44:16.:44:41.

Always a slow starter, she gets Safarova's turn to be ambitious.

:44:41.:44:51.
:44:51.:44:56.

She just got a little tense as she hit that ball. A mini-break has now

It is long. There's no Hawk-Eye on Fourth double fault for Laura

fantastic performance. You can see the rest of that and folding on the

Britain 0. We were hoping to bring you this on BBC One but because of

:48:13.:48:17.

the delays in the eventing, we haven't been able to do that. Look

:48:17.:48:21.

at that, Great Britain picking up a point. The perfect time to drop in

:48:21.:48:26.

and see what's happening. That is what is wonderful about the Olympic

:48:26.:48:36.
:48:36.:48:38.

for one of the riders. It wasn't serious but sadly, as soon as they

:48:38.:48:42.

got under way, someone else fell off, leading to even more of a

:48:42.:48:46.

delay. We can now join them once again for the cross-country. It's

:48:46.:48:56.
:48:56.:48:59.

up from hereon in it is a nice, round. The fence where everyone

:48:59.:49:05.

today it has gone the short way. But we have had an incident, two

:49:05.:49:15.
:49:15.:49:33.

Japanese certainly performed above their station in the dressage phase.

:49:33.:49:39.

This is a very quick horse. We have had a couple of courses slip in

:49:39.:49:44.

some of these tight turns. The stunts that the horses had put in a

:49:44.:49:49.

pretty crucial, but that was a good demonstration of that Fens. They

:49:49.:49:54.

are very crucial. He is not hanging around. When I walked into the park

:49:54.:50:01.

this morning just after 8am, the first horse and rider I saw what

:50:01.:50:07.

these two. She looked quite strong. She was towing him around the warm-

:50:07.:50:11.

up area. He certainly set of meaning business. I was glad to see

:50:11.:50:15.

you went the long wait around the fence. Just get it out of the way

:50:15.:50:25.
:50:25.:50:31.

and let yourself settle into the Lucinda Fredericks, before she was

:50:31.:50:38.

then put on the market. Lucinda was sad to lose the right. She was

:50:38.:50:48.
:50:48.:50:58.

and qualified. Not easy in the dressage, but it is a horse that

:50:58.:51:02.

looks quite capable at cross country. This is much the biggest

:51:02.:51:07.

test they've ever done. He's having a pretty good ride so far. A bit of

:51:07.:51:16.

a stand-off therefore stop she's So Sharp. I don't think I've ever

:51:16.:51:20.

heard such a vocal or seen such an animated crowd at a three-day event

:51:20.:51:25.

in Britain before. It is fantastic out there. They are loving every

:51:25.:51:30.

second of it. You expect it in America, that is something they are

:51:30.:51:34.

always very good at bear. We haven't perhaps heard it quite so

:51:34.:51:38.

much in Great Britain. 50,000 people here in Greenwich enjoying

:51:38.:51:43.

the weather and the competition. It is all to play for. The Japanese

:51:43.:51:48.

were in 6th place overnight, less than three marks behind Great

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 60 seconds

away from starting. The second rider for Britain. Britain in third

:52:51.:53:01.
:53:01.:53:14.

Griffiths, he had a fall at fence 21, a very straightforward fence.

:53:14.:53:18.

It is so often the way. You jump all the difficult fences and then

you have a silly for at a simple fence. Having said it was simple,

:53:36.:53:40.

if he'd taken at stand-off in the water and tried to turn for the

themselves in glory to this moment in time. Everyone has been so

:54:11.:54:20.
:54:21.:54:32.

and easy as any we've seen so far. Keep going, keep going! There was

no stopping there. If they come to a standstill then it can't be

:56:07.:56:11.

do now? This is her 15th consecutive championships for Great

:56:21.:56:29.

Britain. She's got a great record. control and accuracy for fence

three. It is the offence that has Imperial Cavalier looking strong.

:56:42.:56:48.

Yes, a great line from Mary. She had the line as soon as she came

:56:48.:56:53.

around the corner. The horse had a clear picture of where he was going.

:56:53.:56:57.

The revised times with the stops we've had for our British riders,

Zara will be away at 3:45pm. Tina after 3:50pm. Nicola Wilson got

Great Britain after a great start. Canary sustain that British

challenge? -- Canary -- Hammett Mary? And he's down! He is the

was enough to unbalance the horse. There we are, you've got to jump

:57:55.:58:05.
:58:05.:58:13.

all the 28 fences. But good to see quickly to make sure all is well.

:59:29.:59:36.

Everything was working there! The horse responded and reacted, which

:59:36.:59:46.
:59:46.:00:01.

on the course, designated by the control team here. We will see if

:00:01.:00:06.

Mary is going to get stopped. She probably needs to be stopped fairly

:00:06.:00:14.

soon. She comes to that pretty big climb away from the water at 20.

:00:14.:00:23.

They are letting her run. That is good news. Will she keep her line?

:00:23.:00:29.

A good job that brush was there. It is a box hedge. You don't have to

:00:29.:00:33.

jump all of those, they can go through them. That was just as well

:00:33.:00:40.

for Imperial Cavalier. A hairy moment there for Mary King and

:00:40.:00:44.

Imperial Cavalier. She's trying to get inside the time. You've got to

:00:44.:00:52.

take a bit of risk. Can she make this turn in the arena? It is tight.

She stands off her stride. She is 11 seconds behind Christopher

the fitness to run at the top, it is quite possible. Prince Harry and

:01:13.:01:18.

the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are watching in the arena. Imperial

:01:18.:01:24.

Cavalier is getting stronger. very keen and enthusiastic. Mary

:01:24.:01:34.
:01:34.:01:34.

has got control. Ready for the turn. Nicely over that. That is the sort

:01:34.:01:43.

of control she has at the moment. They're rather flags. Mary is being

:01:43.:01:52.

stopped. She will be able to go up the hill. For horse doesn't look as

:01:52.:02:02.
:02:02.:02:14.

true professional, Mary King. What happens... That is the royal party

:02:15.:02:24.
:02:25.:02:27.

with Lord Coe. The Duchess of Cornwall, too. They are all waiting

:02:27.:02:34.

to hear the news, particularly of the British team. Prince William

:02:34.:02:40.

and Krupp -- Prince Harry, they love their polo. They play a lot of

:02:40.:02:50.
:02:50.:02:57.

The crowd is huge. They really are in a great mood. Just longing to

:02:57.:03:05.

cheer the British riders home. Mary King is on course, but being held,

:03:05.:03:15.
:03:15.:03:16.

we think as a result of a fall from the young Japanese rider. He fell

:03:16.:03:25.

at fence 23, the cricket ball basket. He caught his knee on the

:03:25.:03:29.

front of the basket. You wonder whether it might have scratched the

:03:30.:03:34.

knee. It might have caused an injury which the veterinary team

:03:34.:03:44.
:03:44.:03:56.

competition is just about to be restarted. On the course is the

:03:56.:04:01.

Brazilian doctor. He will be restarted and Mary will be

:04:01.:04:06.

restarted very shortly. She has got the water out of the way. Hopefully

:04:06.:04:10.

Imperial Cavalier has got his breath back. He was 11 seconds down

:04:10.:04:18.

in the arena. Can Mary King and Imperial Cavalier get that back?

:04:18.:04:28.
:04:28.:04:43.

Nicola Wilson certainly did with still clear. Keep it calm, don't

:04:43.:04:52.

get carried away. This is the toughest of the hills. Will it work

:04:52.:05:02.
:05:02.:05:16.

to none. Her first Olympics was in 1992 in Barcelona. Wow! That is all

:05:16.:05:21.

right! For flag went as well, but my word she's on the edge. She

:05:21.:05:26.

jumped at the right side of the Red Flag. She had to leave the red flag

:05:26.:05:30.

on her right and she jumped definitely the right side of the

:05:30.:05:36.

flag. It is a safety measure for the horse, actually. No penalties

:05:36.:05:44.

incurred, still clear at the moment. We are a bit on edge! Dare I say it,

:05:44.:05:49.

she has got the worst of the terrain behind her. It is a case of

:05:49.:05:59.
:05:59.:06:02.

jumping fences on the flat. Up we have had a couple of horses take a

:06:02.:06:05.

tumble at the cricket ball basket. It is the question of focusing. She

:06:05.:06:09.

has got the galloping stretch in front of her and Imperial Cavalier

:06:09.:06:18.

is full of running. The cricket basket comes after the garden fence

:06:18.:06:28.
:06:28.:06:37.

it is one of the more upright fences. You certainly want to give

:06:37.:06:44.

it respect. Two competitors have fallen there. Word will not have

:06:44.:06:49.

gone back to where it -- Mary that this offence caused the problems.

:06:49.:06:55.

But she will be aware that there has already been a fall or earlier.

:06:55.:07:04.

Hopefully she will get ready for it. Mary, 6th consecutive Games. She

:07:04.:07:14.
:07:14.:07:31.

has been in the British team since Yes, fantastic. Got on the line

:07:31.:07:41.
:07:41.:07:44.

from way out. Next out, 22-year-old. And very talented young man. He got

:07:44.:07:49.

a very good dressage score, 43.7. Sweden were lying equal fourth

:07:49.:07:58.

behind Britain. A huge question for this young rider. But he is well up

:07:58.:08:08.
:08:08.:08:10.

to the job. This is the doctor for Brazil at the last. Brazil with

:08:10.:08:20.
:08:20.:08:20.

just four riders. Josephine is home. 42.8 in the cross-country phase.

:08:20.:08:29.

The Swede at the first water. Winnie the Pooh. He is away. Now

:08:29.:08:39.
:08:39.:08:52.

Mary King. On this lovely horse, Because she was stopped on the

:08:52.:08:58.

course, she will not have a time. Has she gone quick enough? She is

:08:58.:09:03.

not flying around the last, but she has gone well. His is inside the

:09:31.:09:34.

performers by Nicola Wilson earlier. If you would like to see the rest

:09:34.:09:40.

of the cross-country, turnover to BBC Three. On BBC One, it is time

:09:40.:09:44.

to head for the Aquatics Centre. Tom Daley has leapt off the diving

:09:44.:09:48.

board thousands of times in his life, but never before a British

:09:48.:09:52.

crowd in the Olympics. A good job he is already used to the

:09:52.:09:58.

spotlight! Clare Balding is with Leon Taylor. Before we talk about

:09:58.:10:01.

the diving, I bet you had a television with the cross-country

:10:02.:10:06.

on. I did! I was watching Mary King and holding my breath because

:10:06.:10:10.

sometimes it is nerve-racking. I was trying to explain it to Leon.

:10:10.:10:17.

Look at that line-up as well. Prince William, Kate, Prince Harry.

:10:17.:10:21.

We had diving royalty here. Leon Taylor knows Pete Waterfield better

:10:21.:10:27.

than anyone. You won a silver medal with him in Athens. He seems to

:10:27.:10:31.

have an aura of incredible calm this. That is so important,

:10:31.:10:36.

especially today. It is a straight final. Six dives and every single

:10:36.:10:41.

one counts. Pete has been there, this is his fourth Olympics. He

:10:41.:10:46.

will be steady and that is what it is about. He is 34 years old, a

:10:46.:10:52.

father of two. Tom competed in his first Olympics at the age of 14. He

:10:52.:10:58.

is now 18, he has grown six inches in height. It is extraordinary to

:10:58.:11:01.

see the footage of Beijing and see how he has grown in stature and

:11:01.:11:08.

class. He is a man today. He is taller than Peter and he is ready

:11:08.:11:15.

to rock and roll. You have to get up to the commentary box. An

:11:15.:11:19.

incredible atmosphere here. Tom and peaked will be 7th to dive out of

:11:19.:11:25.

eight. Thank you. Or lies on Tom and Peter over the next 45 minutes.

:11:25.:11:35.
:11:35.:11:42.

From a height of 10m, it takes Tom Daley about 1.6 seconds to hit the

:11:42.:11:48.

water. That is not a lot of time to do what he does. He is judged by

:11:48.:11:51.

those who know diving inside out and upside down, at normal speed.

:11:51.:11:59.

But for the rest of us, he has to be slowed down. Only then do all of

:11:59.:12:03.

the twists and turns of his life reveal themselves. There is then a

:12:03.:12:08.

sort of distortion to how we see the world of Tom Daley. From the

:12:08.:12:13.

moment he looked up at the age of seven at that platform high above

:12:13.:12:18.

Central Park pool in Hibs home city of Plymouth until his dad -- and

:12:18.:12:22.

told his dad that he wanted to climb up. Ever since then he has

:12:22.:12:26.

been a prodigy falling gracefully. This wonder child, unable to escape

:12:26.:12:36.

He he began to make an impact in international competition at the

:12:36.:12:41.

age of nine. He was bullied at school. He went to the Beijing

:12:41.:12:48.

Olympics at the age of 14. A spat with his partner in the

:12:48.:12:55.

synchronised event became public knowledge. He became individual

:12:55.:13:05.
:13:05.:13:14.

world champion at the 2009 World He won individual gold in the

:13:14.:13:17.

Commonwealth Games, plus a gold in the 10m synchronised with Max

:13:17.:13:23.

Britain. Rob, his companion, his driver, his film-maker, his Best

:13:23.:13:33.
:13:33.:13:34.

Mate, his father, aged 40, died of a brain tumour. This year, Tom won

:13:34.:13:36.

the individual ten-metre platform in the European Championships in

:13:36.:13:43.

Eindhoven. His coach criticised him for overdoing his media and

:13:43.:13:47.

commercial activities. In Mexico he won the last leg of the world

:13:48.:13:51.

series before the Olympics, plus a bronze in the synchronised with

:13:51.:13:58.

Pete Waterfield. But can he beat his arch-rival from China? For

:13:58.:14:02.

twists and turns of being Tom Daley. Perhaps we shall never see him as

:14:02.:14:07.

he truly is at normal speed and we should only worry that he does not

:14:07.:14:14.

go the way of some other child stars and four. Except for link is

:14:14.:14:17.

what he does and perhaps how we see him is no more distorted than how

:14:18.:14:23.

he sees the world, from a handstand on the edge of a platform 10m up

:14:23.:14:28.

there. Perhaps we should simply enjoy young Tom and all that he

:14:28.:14:32.

does while it lasts. I think I was nine when I drew theirs. It is

:14:32.:14:38.

needed doing handstands in the Olympics in London 2012. All 1.6

:14:38.:14:48.
:14:48.:14:53.

Nine years after that drawing, it is time to write some Olympic

:14:53.:14:58.

history. A week on Friday Tom and Peter will be competing against

:14:58.:15:05.

each other. But today they are together 14 GB. Look at the crowd

:15:05.:15:10.

inside the aquatics centre. Now live coverage of the ten-metre

:15:10.:15:20.
:15:20.:15:30.

noise really lifted the roof of the aquatic Centre. What a reception

:15:30.:15:35.

for Pete Waterfield and Tom Daley. And there is great expectancy from

:15:35.:15:41.

the crowd. Leon Taylor, you have been in this position in Athens,

:15:41.:15:46.

what are they expecting today? took to the board to do their final

:15:46.:15:50.

warm-up died and the crowd greeted them with massive applause and

:15:50.:16:00.
:16:00.:16:17.

is made of tougher stuff than me. Both boys are injury-free, so it is

:16:17.:16:22.

down to this contest, these six dives, and who can hold their

:16:22.:16:27.

nerves. There are potentially seven per us who can be in the medals. On

:16:27.:16:37.

their day, they could be eight. First up it will beat the Russian

:16:37.:16:47.
:16:47.:16:49.

pair. They will be doing tariff 2.0 dives early on. This will be a back

:16:49.:16:53.

dive with a pike. The scoring system has changed since we last

:16:53.:16:59.

brought diving on the BBC. There are six Execution judges rather

:16:59.:17:06.

than three. We're not quite ready to start. I will explain the judges.

:17:06.:17:12.

The intention is basically to make it even fairer. You will average

:17:12.:17:16.

everything out. The Russians are sorting out what died that they

:17:16.:17:23.

will be doing. Six Execution judges, three for one diver, three for the

:17:23.:17:29.

other. The highest and lowest of Beach judge is taken away. Then we

:17:29.:17:33.

get the synchro judges the to leave you with five scores that carry,

:17:33.:17:39.

multiplied by the degree of difficulty. It is then multiplied

:17:39.:17:49.
:17:49.:17:49.

by 0.6. You basically get a score that is comparable. It is tipped

:17:49.:17:54.

towards synchronisation. So the better the synchronisation, the

:17:54.:18:01.

better. Execution is important, but synchronisation is keep today.

:18:01.:18:06.

is a hiccup the Russians do not need. They are prepared mentally

:18:07.:18:11.

and physically, and there seems to be a disagreement or a

:18:11.:18:15.

misunderstanding on the opening diver which we have down as a back

:18:15.:18:21.

died with pike. Has the up been confirmed? I am not sure. This is

:18:21.:18:28.

important. It is hard enough opening up your campaign. When you

:18:28.:18:33.

are No 1, there is additional pressure another has been a

:18:33.:18:38.

disruption to proceedings. It looks like we are ready to go. And it is

:18:39.:18:48.
:18:49.:19:08.

Russians would have been looking for. Not fazed by the delay.

:19:08.:19:13.

Folding at the hips but keeping knees straight. Arms up together

:19:13.:19:21.

and touching the toes. A bit closer to the diving board than they would

:19:21.:19:27.

have liked. Good synchronisation. Looking at hitting the water at the

:19:27.:19:37.
:19:37.:20:04.

same time. Is solid start at by the is the forward dive in the pipe

:20:04.:20:10.

position. Keeping legs nice and straight. The judges do not get to

:20:10.:20:15.

see the replay, but that is what you were looking at four good

:20:15.:20:23.

synchronisation. Exactly the same time hitting the water. You can see

:20:23.:20:29.

the diver's spreading their arms out as they hit the water. There is

:20:29.:20:37.

a 10, but it won't count. All the marks with a line through them to

:20:37.:20:41.

do not score. Now to the most consistent per in Europe in recent

:20:41.:20:51.
:20:51.:21:17.

teams won't be giving a lot away. Look at that camera angle. Nearly

:21:17.:21:24.

40 miles an hour impact speed. A steady start from what you would

:21:24.:21:34.
:21:34.:22:04.

expect. The first two rounds will Spinning forwards towards the

:22:04.:22:14.
:22:14.:22:27.

from the judges as one hit the water before the other. Coaches

:22:27.:22:34.

always seem to like it. You never see a negative reaction. Here are

:22:34.:22:44.
:22:44.:22:44.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 60 seconds

:22:44.:23:27.

We will be seeing more moves that we have not seen before at an

:23:27.:23:33.

Olympic games, but this is their easiest one. Synchronisation was OK

:23:33.:23:38.

in terms with their entry into the water. Lowest marks so far for the

:23:38.:23:48.
:23:48.:24:26.

you can tell, and very solid die from the Cubans. Guess who is up

:24:26.:24:31.

next? This contest has given a high-class start from all of the

:24:31.:24:38.

divers so far. The big question now as we wait for Tom Daley and Pete

:24:38.:24:44.

Waterfield, what effect will the crowd have on the judge's scores?

:24:44.:24:50.

Surely the crowd will have some kind of influence over the outcome.

:24:50.:25:00.
:25:00.:25:07.

Best to get the first dive out of Super synchronisation and the crowd

:25:07.:25:17.
:25:17.:25:18.

like it. They have been training well and they are both injury free.

:25:18.:25:24.

The crowd are loving it, let's see what the judges think. Come on,

:25:24.:25:30.

let's go with them. This is their day today. Super slow-motion.

:25:30.:25:36.

Bracing themselves for the impact. What an amazing piece of footage.

:25:36.:25:46.
:25:46.:25:46.

Some amazing marks coming your way. 9.5 on the right, and 9.5 on the

:25:46.:25:56.
:25:56.:26:13.

left put Great Britain in equal see anything but a very good here.

:26:13.:26:17.

The top divers have been selected from the European Championships a

:26:17.:26:25.

few months ago. You can see the strapping on many of the diver left

:26:25.:26:35.
:26:35.:26:37.

on the screen. I think Barbour is our top of the pile. -- Barbour is.

:26:37.:26:43.

This is what you will see at the top of the table. China and Great

:26:43.:26:52.

Britain first round completed. Then come the USA. It is early days yet

:26:52.:27:02.
:27:02.:27:06.

with another round of 2.0 tariffs. Then it is the big boys. The

:27:06.:27:11.

women's competition has five rounds, the men's competition had six

:27:11.:27:18.

rounds. I don't think it will be lacking in noise this afternoon in

:27:18.:27:22.

the aquatic centre. Everybody is expectant. They won't have to wait

:27:22.:27:32.
:27:32.:27:36.

quite as long for the second round died. -- dive. Forward 1.5

:27:36.:27:46.
:27:46.:27:46.

somersaults with pike. More like it from the Russians. Maybe the delay

:27:46.:27:55.

before their first dive put them further down the pack than they

:27:55.:28:02.

would have liked. Entering the water in perfect alignment. They

:28:02.:28:12.
:28:12.:28:16.

were throwing up a little bit of splash. I should be a judge. Decent

:28:16.:28:20.

marks for the Russians. I imagine it will be more than decent that

:28:20.:28:24.

China. But there is a bit of pressure on them in the early

:28:24.:28:34.
:28:34.:28:43.

support for Tom Daley and Pete Waterfield. They are just doing

:28:43.:28:52.

their thing. They are only young, 17 and 18. Younger than Tom Daley.

:28:52.:29:02.
:29:02.:29:26.

Look at the entry into the water. at the Olympics in Beijing. In

:29:26.:29:36.
:29:36.:29:43.

would dive with pike. -- in would dive. Just positions from the

:29:43.:29:49.

Germans. Notorious for their consistency and it earned them a

:29:49.:29:55.

silver medal four years ago. However, my people on the ground

:29:55.:29:59.

saying training they have been struggling with some of their

:29:59.:30:09.
:30:09.:30:20.

optional dives. But that basic guys womb, the way the water holds you.

:30:20.:30:26.

The Germans in the second position for the time being. This pair, on

:30:26.:30:35.

the day, can be red hot. Nick McCrory and David Boudia --

:30:35.:30:45.
:30:45.:31:01.

will let you know how they take-off at the same time, it is one, two,

:31:01.:31:10.

three, go. It is not telepathy. They look a little shaky, this pair.

:31:10.:31:14.

They are well in contention. Anything over 53 or 54 is a really

:31:14.:31:21.

good dive. The American coach is easily pleased. We are in for a

:31:22.:31:31.
:31:32.:31:35.

high-scoring final. 54 Fall USA. -- for USA. At the back of the pack,

:31:35.:31:41.

looking to repair that damage, are the Mexican pair of German Sanchez

:31:41.:31:51.
:31:51.:32:02.

Sanchez and even Garcia Navarro. -- the first dive they were different

:32:02.:32:06.

distances from the diving board. You can see the beauty and

:32:06.:32:10.

precision displayed by some of the other athletes, the other pairs.

:32:10.:32:13.

They are a little bit scruffy but they will really come into their

:32:13.:32:18.

own when they come into the optional dive. A much better dive

:32:18.:32:25.

from them. Could do with your arms being straight there, make yourself

:32:25.:32:30.

look a little bit more a aesthetically pleasing. Didn't

:32:30.:32:38.

really catch the judge's eye. They have not really made up a great

:32:38.:32:47.

deal so far. The Cuban pair of Jose Antonio Querrey and Jeinkler

:32:47.:32:57.
:32:57.:32:59.

Aguirre. Interesting choice of dive. Not quite sure whether they were

:32:59.:33:06.

electing for the top position. That was a solid dive from the Keepin

:33:06.:33:15.

pair. Beautiful entry into the water. The execution marks will

:33:15.:33:25.
:33:25.:33:29.

certainly be nine for Joe's day. -- Jose. Spot on the money as ever,

:33:29.:33:36.

for Mr Leon Taylor. These two are quite popular. Might take a while

:33:36.:33:40.

to compose themselves. Must be quite daunting with the noise being

:33:40.:33:44.

generated, virtually at capacity here in the Aquatics Centre in

:33:45.:33:52.

London. Reverse dive with pike, Daley and Waterfield, died number

:33:52.:34:01.

two. Here we go. This is how it is going to be. These are going to

:34:01.:34:05.

keep putting the pressure on the Chinese. Perfect synchronisation,

:34:05.:34:09.

let's take a look, jumping away from the diving board, touching

:34:09.:34:15.

toes, looking back, our movement in perfect time. Come on, judges. The

:34:15.:34:20.

crowd on their feet. This is only round two. Wait until we get into

:34:20.:34:25.

this competition. There is Pete Waterfield's dad, he likes it and I

:34:25.:34:35.
:34:35.:34:37.

certainly like it too. That means, Great Britain are into the lead,

:34:37.:34:47.
:34:47.:35:00.

they are ahead of China by eight that Ukraine at feeling the

:35:00.:35:08.

occasion, different distances from the diving board. There are nice

:35:08.:35:11.

safe distance from the diving board. One of them a little bit safer from

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

the other. His injury doesn't seem to be affecting his jump. Amazing

:35:21.:35:30.

power generated from their small framed. -- frames. The entries were

:35:30.:35:40.
:35:40.:35:41.

not quite in sync. Here is the scoreboard for the crowd. There is

:35:41.:35:47.

no point me holding it back. You will see what they are seeing,

:35:47.:35:51.

after it you create any -- Ukrainians leave the water, Great

:35:51.:35:58.

Britain at the top of the standings. We haven't really begun at the

:35:58.:36:02.

competition yet. That is the starter, here comes the four-course

:36:02.:36:12.
:36:12.:36:17.

exactly where our boys want to be. I wasn't expecting them to be in

:36:17.:36:21.

the lead, the Chinese not looking as good as they have done in

:36:21.:36:25.

training. This is where the real competition starts, the optional

:36:25.:36:35.
:36:35.:36:40.

died us. -- died us. -- dives. In would be three and half, the

:36:40.:36:49.

Russian pair of Zakharov and Minibaev. You can really see the

:36:49.:36:53.

difference, from the most basic dives in the world, straight into

:36:53.:37:00.

the most complicated. Superb synchronisation. The judges did get

:37:00.:37:05.

to see the replay, but we do. Pretty close to the diving board,

:37:05.:37:10.

Zakharov, closest to us, not very pleasant. I am not sure if the

:37:10.:37:15.

judges will take off any marks. I know a lot of you jump backwards

:37:15.:37:25.
:37:25.:37:36.

aghast but that is OK. That looked any kind of pressure with their

:37:36.:37:40.

back to a half somersaults, one- and-a-half twist in the pipe

:37:40.:37:50.
:37:50.:38:00.

The coaches like it. If they like it, it is really really good. I

:38:00.:38:10.
:38:10.:38:18.

will not be surprised if we see some 10 ofs on this. -- 10s. It is

:38:18.:38:24.

only 3.2 degree of difficulty. They are laying down the pressure on

:38:24.:38:31.

everybody else. There is a 10 in there but that will not count. They

:38:31.:38:36.

are not going for a big tariff dive, they are leaving it to the likes of

:38:36.:38:44.

Mexico and Great Britain later on. Hausding and Klein go for a back to

:38:44.:38:54.

and a half somersaults, one-and-a- half twist. A tremendous effort,

:38:54.:39:00.

they did all the hard worker, the all-important entry has let them

:39:00.:39:10.
:39:10.:39:12.

down slightly. Beautiful, into the pike shape, all looking good. A bit

:39:12.:39:21.

of Splash, probably only eight before the execution. They are very

:39:21.:39:28.

much in with a shout. Maybe not quite as high as they would have

:39:28.:39:37.

hoped for. They are in second place behind China. It almost seems like

:39:37.:39:47.
:39:47.:39:49.

there is a brawl when people look at the scoresheet. -- roar. Three-

:39:49.:39:59.

and a-half somersaults, but Harris is 3.2 -- the tariff. Interesting,

:39:59.:40:08.

very interesting. Like the German pair, he didn't really like it.

:40:08.:40:17.

Multiple Olympic champion himself. Good all the way, David Boudia,

:40:17.:40:21.

furthest from us, that is too much splash. I have seen them died

:40:21.:40:25.

better. They are feeling the pressure, the nerves of getting

:40:25.:40:35.
:40:35.:40:46.

up into the big numbers. 3.7. The highest tariff we have seen so far

:40:46.:40:53.

but not a highest we will see. Forward four-and-a-half somersault

:40:53.:41:03.
:41:03.:41:09.

with tuck. This is tricky. Stand by for some splash on this one. It is

:41:09.:41:15.

impressive. You can hear the cry to hold their breath as they take off.

:41:15.:41:20.

Our boys will be using this as are most of the teams. The Mexicans

:41:20.:41:28.

have done well on this. Let's count no somersaults, 1, 2, 3, 4, half,

:41:28.:41:38.
:41:38.:41:38.

slightly faltering as their way -- as they went in on the entry. If

:41:38.:41:42.

they were going to know what all, that might have been the one, but

:41:42.:41:51.

they are still in it. Slight difference in their entry times. I

:41:52.:42:01.
:42:02.:42:19.

Grayrigg, -- wearer. -- Guerra. There is a difference in distance

:42:19.:42:29.
:42:29.:42:30.

from the diving board. You can see this been at speeds are the tame --

:42:30.:42:40.
:42:40.:42:51.

decent marks, 81.60. Doesn't really do much in terms of moving up the

:42:51.:43:01.
:43:01.:43:03.

table. He might this be? -- who might this be? A certain Thomas

:43:03.:43:13.
:43:13.:43:27.

Daily, -- Tom Daley, and Pete they were looking for, this is the

:43:28.:43:33.

one I was unsure of. David Cameron next to Andy and there, they like

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

it. -- Hunt. That has got to be 9.5 on synchro, they have been working

:43:44.:43:54.
:43:54.:44:08.

so hard. Come on. I have just gone 91.08. The 10 will not count. Big

:44:08.:44:18.
:44:18.:44:29.

smile on his face. They are back in caused because of fog -- gosh

:44:29.:44:39.
:44:39.:45:11.

the synchronisation is good. It will give them a good total.

:45:11.:45:18.

level here has raged to fever pitch. At the top of the table, not much

:45:18.:45:25.

at this stage, but at half day -- halfway, Tom Daley and Pete

:45:25.:45:35.
:45:35.:45:57.

Waterfield lead. Look how tight it the bigger tariff dives.

:45:57.:46:07.
:46:07.:46:08.

Russians. They reversed 3.5 somersaults quick talk. 3.3 is the

:46:08.:46:17.

degree of difficulty. It is a brilliant dive for the Russians.

:46:17.:46:22.

The reverse is incredibly dangerous. You are standing forwards on the

:46:22.:46:27.

end of the diving board. You jumper away and then spin backwards

:46:27.:46:33.

towards the diving board. They were slightly different on spinning

:46:33.:46:41.

speed, but entry into the water was good. They might be a little bit

:46:41.:46:51.
:46:51.:47:03.

behind the game this side. Marks want to get into this pretty

:47:03.:47:13.

quickly by the looks of things. QC me, and now you don't! The all

:47:13.:47:20.

important entry into the water. Support from the rest of their

:47:20.:47:29.

team-mates. -- now you see me, and now you don't. Entry into the water

:47:29.:47:36.

was spot on. I think it will be over 90 points for stomp and they

:47:36.:47:40.

are laying down the gauntlet for Tom Daley and Pete Waterfield to

:47:40.:47:50.
:47:50.:47:58.

catch up. 93.6 is a very good score indeed. Everyone knows how tough

:47:58.:48:06.

and could this competition is turning out to beat. The Germans

:48:06.:48:16.
:48:16.:48:23.

were second place in Beijing. high risk. Shaking off the hands

:48:23.:48:31.

means a bogey dive. 3.6, back 3.5 in the folding position. Low into

:48:31.:48:38.

the water. Arching into the water. Will suffer a bit with the

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

too bad. But the standard of competition, if you are not getting

:48:58.:49:03.

eight or nine, you are not in the mix for a medal. That is how high

:49:03.:49:08.

the standard is today. 4.5 somersaults in the forward position

:49:08.:49:17.

for the Americans. They have done it. This is the risky one. This is

:49:17.:49:23.

the one great Britain has coming up. The American guys in perfect

:49:23.:49:32.

synchro. They should be pleased with that. If that gets them over

:49:32.:49:38.

90, it is worth the risk. Into the water. Good entry from both of them

:49:38.:49:42.

and their team mates agreed. It might bring them back up the field

:49:42.:49:51.

a little bit. They are just behind China, 11 marks behind China. This

:49:51.:49:56.

is a dive you wouldn't believe it when you see it. If it comes off,

:49:56.:50:04.

and I have not seen it come off get, it will be spectacular. It is a 4.1

:50:04.:50:11.

tariff. It is off the Richter scale when it comes to diving in would.

:50:11.:50:18.

You think it is impossible, and it might be. As ever, they will give

:50:18.:50:28.
:50:28.:50:49.

it a go. If it comes off, watch synchronisation is spot on. I am

:50:49.:50:57.

taken aback. It is an incredible effort. There synchronisation is

:50:57.:51:03.

good. 4.5 somersaults. It is extraordinary any human being can

:51:03.:51:09.

do this and let alone that are well. Maybe they will get a 6.5 and seven

:51:09.:51:17.

for execution. If they get close to 100 points, it is job done. Biggest

:51:17.:51:27.
:51:27.:51:27.

mark of the competition so far. 95.94, we have not seen them do it

:51:27.:51:33.

as good as that ever before on BBC Television's. Now the Cubans have

:51:33.:51:43.
:51:43.:51:52.

opted for the fourth round died. -- the water was awful from what a

:51:52.:52:02.
:52:02.:52:04.

week are used to. Smacked his head. Look at the splash from the diver

:52:04.:52:14.
:52:14.:52:16.

furthest away from us. Synchronisation solid. Solid is not

:52:16.:52:26.
:52:26.:52:28.

going to get the medal. They are down in 6th place. Well, so far, so

:52:28.:52:38.
:52:38.:52:40.

good for Tom Daley and Pete big margin between Great Britain

:52:40.:52:50.
:52:50.:53:00.

died. This is how tricky it is. You can see by the expression on their

:53:00.:53:07.

faces that neither diver did what they normally do on this. Peter was

:53:07.:53:12.

a little bit late, Tom was a little bit early. The execution was off.

:53:13.:53:19.

That will put them down into the middle of the pack. There is still

:53:19.:53:24.

time to fight, but the Chinese will be ahead already. Tom Daley going

:53:24.:53:30.

off to have a little think. That is not the score they wanted. First

:53:30.:53:34.

time they have missed their dive and they have missed it quite

:53:34.:53:44.
:53:44.:53:45.

spectacularly in this round. Still time to make it up. The very basic

:53:45.:53:52.

forward 3.5 somersaults in the pipe position. This is low risk, but no

:53:52.:54:01.

degree of difficulty. Squeezing into their legs. No daylight in

:54:01.:54:07.

between. It is a good dive but they won't feature. Mid-70s I would

:54:07.:54:16.

imagine for that dive. Such a beautiful pool isn't it? We cannot

:54:16.:54:22.

dismount anybody. But it won't beat the Ukraine's day. And they are

:54:22.:54:28.

down at the bottom. Just over 30 points separate first place to the

:54:28.:54:38.
:54:38.:54:44.

bottom at the end of the fourth cannot bring you the standings

:54:44.:54:49.

after that round. We can tell you it is China from Mexico, from USA

:54:49.:54:59.
:54:59.:55:28.

big dive. Very well executed. Squeezing into the 2.5 twists. Get

:55:28.:55:33.

them out a way and then into the somersaults and into the water.

:55:33.:55:38.

That will keep the Russians in contention. Moving towards each

:55:38.:55:42.

other as they were going down them, I don't recommend holding hands

:55:42.:55:51.

going down. Not to be advised. 88 point 56, sounds like a radio

:55:51.:55:58.

frequency. That is the Russians almost done. One more dive. China,

:55:58.:56:08.
:56:08.:56:16.

back in pole position, where we it is not a big mistake.

:56:16.:56:22.

Synchronisation in complete it Unison, it was spot on. Into the

:56:22.:56:29.

shape. We have seen other divers and make a bit of a mess of this.

:56:29.:56:34.

The Chinese have a little wobble on it. Execution a little bit off, but

:56:34.:56:44.
:56:44.:56:53.

it is certainly not going to impact China. Now, the Germans. The last

:56:53.:57:02.

round did not go very well for them. They have gone down to a 3.3. But

:57:02.:57:07.

they do have a three-point 60 finish off their programme.

:57:07.:57:12.

Germans trying to get themselves back in it, they have not made a

:57:12.:57:17.

big mistake yet. This one, they would have wanted this a little bit

:57:17.:57:23.

sharper. Meaning they would have wanted a clean entry into the water.

:57:23.:57:30.

That will get an eight Execution, probably a 0.5 the synchronisation.

:57:30.:57:40.
:57:40.:57:43.

Slightly different entry times into the water. -- 8.54 stop come on,

:57:43.:57:49.

give us the total. 84.15, is the total before it appears on the

:57:49.:57:59.
:57:59.:58:11.

somersault. 3.5 degree of difficulty. The Americans are still

:58:11.:58:16.

in the hunt. Inspired by the goals yesterday in a three-metre

:58:16.:58:26.
:58:26.:58:44.

Second place is certainly in the mix and bake on 19 points behind

:58:44.:58:51.

China. As we watch the Mexican has go for, not a big dive compared to

:58:51.:58:59.

their 4.1, but nonetheless it is another difficult programme. On the

:58:59.:59:03.

day, if they get everything right that they will win this competition.

:59:03.:59:13.
:59:13.:59:15.

But it certainly won't be today. 3.3 difficulty. Sanchez and Garcia

:59:15.:59:25.
:59:25.:59:53.

That is what they needed to do because that is a spectacular dive

:59:53.:00:00.

from the Mexican has. This just doesn't go so well in training.

:00:00.:00:04.

These are my dark horses for a medal. And that it will get over 90

:00:04.:00:10.

points. This is the weakest one in their programme. They took ages to

:00:10.:00:19.

get off, but when they did! What a dive. Where are you going? Health

:00:19.:00:29.

and safety report from the Mexicans. Definitely in contention. They are

:00:29.:00:39.
:00:39.:00:55.

to let the other competitors get a wave. Dive after dive, are all

:00:55.:01:03.

about consistency. Squeezing in a nice and tight. This will get

:01:03.:01:13.
:01:13.:01:19.

would be, world class. This has to be the best 10m synchro we have

:01:19.:01:29.
:01:29.:01:30.

ever seen. Look at these marks. Now, they have to put their fourth-round

:01:30.:01:37.

a dive behind them and think about the big one. This is the big one.

:01:37.:01:47.
:01:47.:01:54.

better execution. Not quite sure what is happening. You can see,

:01:54.:01:59.

just from the body language, not quite as police. Forward for 0.5,

:01:59.:02:09.
:02:09.:02:13.

all looks good, -- 4.5. I am not sure what the judges will make of

:02:13.:02:18.

it, it needs to be above 90. It is very good, I just wanted it to be

:02:18.:02:28.
:02:28.:02:29.

better. Earth 4th place at the moment. If they are six points

:02:29.:02:39.
:02:39.:02:51.

Probably not knocking on the metal door at the end of this competition.

:02:51.:03:01.
:03:01.:03:06.

doing. Ukrainian coaches sharing their delight. They have been

:03:06.:03:14.

consistent. They are there to pray on the pairs that make mistakes.

:03:14.:03:19.

Nobody is really faltering. I think that is probably a little bit close

:03:19.:03:24.

to the diving board. Everything is safe. So dangerous, spinning

:03:24.:03:31.

forward towards the diving board. A solid synchro dive. That would be

:03:31.:03:38.

some way to have a pedicure. You can say if we now say Ukraine will

:03:38.:03:47.

not be getting a medal today. The end of round five. This is how it

:03:47.:03:53.

looks. Look at the differential. It is not a great differential, China,

:03:53.:04:00.

Mexico, USA in the medals at the moment. Daley and Waterfield to

:04:00.:04:08.

make up seven points. Germany still mathematically in with a chance.

:04:08.:04:12.

Great Britain will have to have a superb last dive to overcome the

:04:12.:04:22.
:04:22.:04:23.

USA. You would think China would take the gold. Final round. Of the

:04:23.:04:29.

men's synchronised ten-metre platform final effort from Zakharov

:04:29.:04:39.
:04:39.:04:41.

and Minibaev. He it is the big one to finish, a little bit off. They

:04:41.:04:44.

have just loaded their list of dives with this big one to finish,

:04:44.:04:49.

it is the make or break died. I don't think it will be good enough

:04:49.:04:59.
:04:59.:05:08.

for a medal. If the dives are OK. Maybe seven 7.5. -- 77.5. Actually

:05:08.:05:11.

16 points better than Daley and Waterfield achieved in theirs. But

:05:11.:05:21.
:05:21.:05:36.

medallists? Finishing off the Chinese programme. We will note in

:05:36.:05:45.

10 seconds whether this will be gold. That looks like it to me,

:05:45.:05:50.

gold medal number two for China. Six pairs to go but we believe they

:05:50.:06:00.
:06:00.:06:00.

have acquired for -- they have that kind of quality. Slight over

:06:00.:06:05.

rotation from both divers on the end but the synchronisation, as on

:06:05.:06:09.

although dives, is bang on. I have seen them dive better but that is

:06:09.:06:14.

why they are Olympic champions. Not even diving at their best they are

:06:14.:06:19.

head and shoulders above the rest, look at that. 99.36. We haven't

:06:19.:06:23.

seen 100 yet. Will we do it before the end of the competition? Not for

:06:23.:06:33.
:06:33.:06:40.

the Chinese today. I think there probably will be enough. The silver

:06:40.:06:45.

and bronze are still up for grabs. These two have slightly

:06:45.:06:50.

underperformed today. Patrick Hausding and Sascha Klein. It has

:06:51.:06:55.

got to be a monumental last dive, it has got a big parrot attached to

:06:55.:07:04.

it. -- tariff. They have got to race at the scoreboard and get this

:07:04.:07:09.

right. That is more like it. Just putting the pressure on the

:07:09.:07:12.

remaining competitors still to go. You will see this dive quite often

:07:12.:07:20.

now. The Americans will use it. So will our boys. A little bit of

:07:20.:07:24.

their game on some of the earlier dives. Just putting them out of

:07:24.:07:29.

contention. I did think this will be good enough for a medal, but

:07:29.:07:32.

didn't have to put pressure on those still to dive. That is

:07:32.:07:38.

fantastic synchronisation. Let's see what the judges think. We are

:07:38.:07:48.
:07:48.:07:52.

awaiting their input. They are in third place at the moment. If

:07:52.:07:58.

everybody else falters they will get a bronze. You can tell by the

:07:58.:08:03.

faces of the divers they are not really convinced. USA are currently

:08:03.:08:11.

in the medals, in third position. Nick McCrory and David Boudia. You

:08:11.:08:21.
:08:21.:08:41.

have seen this dive before. We can the Americans. Very consistent

:08:41.:08:46.

throughout today. That is a dive they needed to finish on. They have

:08:46.:08:54.

got a six points lead on our boys. Execution from both divers is

:08:54.:09:02.

superb. Synchronisation, it is bang on, he really likes it, that is the

:09:02.:09:06.

US coach. Let's see what the judges think. This will be hard to catch.

:09:06.:09:14.

I think they will get 95. Which means, we know what that means,

:09:14.:09:19.

pretty much the British pair have to get a ton and that will take

:09:19.:09:25.

some doing. It is not impossible. We were just hold our breaths for

:09:25.:09:35.
:09:35.:09:36.

the time being as we watch German Sanchez and Ivan Garcia Navarro.

:09:37.:09:43.

They are in second place. All kinds of things are possible with a

:09:43.:09:48.

tariff dive of 3.8. Some people on their prayer mats. Not quite sure

:09:48.:09:58.
:09:58.:10:00.

where to look and what a to-do. That is a big breath. They have got

:10:00.:10:05.

it all going on, at the synchro was very good, but the execution, both

:10:05.:10:10.

divers going over vertical, the 3.8, I am not sure which way this will

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

go. Three twists, into the pad shape. They are crazy. It looks

:10:21.:10:27.

like it will pay off. What colour will it be? He is crossing his

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

fingers. What will happen? Dramatic pause, there you go. The crash can

:10:38.:10:48.
:10:48.:10:56.

see them. 91.20. It will take 102 from Great Britain to get a medal.

:10:57.:11:06.
:11:07.:11:07.

What other chances? -- what are their chances? They will not be in

:11:07.:11:12.

the Middle East but they would have to finish with both up -- the

:11:12.:11:22.
:11:22.:11:30.

superb dive from the key bins. -- steady. -- from the Cubans. This

:11:30.:11:35.

has been a fantastic contest. Everybody diving out of their skin.

:11:35.:11:41.

This will be a good score. It will not be in the medals. They were

:11:41.:11:51.
:11:51.:12:10.

sick after the last round. -- 6th. their final dive. The Mexicans have

:12:10.:12:18.

the silver. It is now the bronze medal that daily and Waterfield are

:12:18.:12:28.
:12:28.:12:28.

going for. It has to be perfect. -- Tom Daley and Pete Waterfield.

:12:28.:12:35.

100.63. You will know if they have made at bronze. 3.6 degree of

:12:35.:12:45.
:12:45.:12:56.

they will be oh so close. They did absolutely everything. 3.6 degree

:12:56.:13:02.

of difficulty, coming back from a bad fourth-round tie. Perfect

:13:02.:13:08.

synchronisation. A little bit of splash being thrown up from both

:13:09.:13:15.

divers. The execution marks will probably be about 8.5. I am not

:13:15.:13:25.
:13:25.:13:26.

sure what they will get on the synchro? But as out of our misery.

:13:26.:13:34.

It is misery, I am afraid. You now see the marks, it is the worst

:13:34.:13:40.

place to finish. Exactly where you finished, Leon, in 2000 in Sydney.

:13:40.:13:50.

It looks like they are going to be 4th and no medal for Tom Daley. All

:13:50.:13:56.

down to the individual at the weekend. It all looks so promising.

:13:56.:14:05.

But not to be. Let's finish this off and we can get out of here.

:14:05.:14:13.

Bondar and Gorshkovozov. The Ukrainians, the last dive for them.

:14:13.:14:20.

3.7. They saved their biggest dive until last, they have done another

:14:20.:14:26.

steady it, good job on it. Not the most fantastic dive. They have

:14:26.:14:32.

managed to pull it together, final dive in this exciting competition.

:14:32.:14:39.

Finishing up well, I did think they will move off their position. They

:14:39.:14:49.
:14:49.:15:01.

have back loaded, their entry into do a great deal for the standings,

:15:01.:15:11.
:15:11.:15:13.

but this will be agony. Maybe some thoughts about what went wrong. The

:15:13.:15:18.

Chinese can celebrate, as they did in the three-metre synchro

:15:18.:15:24.

yesterday with the women. What about the Mexicans? What about that

:15:24.:15:30.

performance?! They went from an amazingly high tariffs on their

:15:30.:15:37.

dives and it paid off. China winning, Mexico in second, the USA

:15:37.:15:43.

in third and look at the margin between third and 4th. Roughly nine

:15:43.:15:51.

points in a competition where the winners got 486. Imagine what would

:15:51.:15:57.

have happened if they have got the fourth round for the fifth round

:15:57.:16:00.

the way they wanted to. The difference between gold and silver

:16:00.:16:07.

was only 14 points in the end. It is all about the Chinese, as it so

:16:07.:16:14.

often is in diving. They don't go for the higher-risk dives, but they

:16:14.:16:20.

have a very solid programme. Although they were being led by

:16:20.:16:23.

Great Britain for a while, they held their nerve and it did not

:16:23.:16:28.

work out for Tom Daley and Pete Waterfield. They will be back for

:16:28.:16:33.

the individual event. Let's not lose sight of the facts they did

:16:33.:16:39.

beat Cuba, Russia, Germany and Ukraine. It was a solid final. The

:16:40.:16:49.

lowest mark the Ukraine, 4.33, a high as two. The China, 4.86. The

:16:49.:16:55.

Americans are absolutely delighted to get the bronze medal. Edging out

:16:55.:17:00.

Tom Daley and Pete Waterfield. The Mexicans are the real stars of the

:17:00.:17:10.
:17:10.:17:12.

day with their second place, what a Agonising scenes inside the

:17:12.:17:17.

Aquatics Centre. Mr Ayling effort from Pete Waterfield and Tom Daley

:17:17.:17:22.

but the Chinese proving how impressive their training regime is.

:17:22.:17:25.

Congratulations to China so they have managed to defend their

:17:25.:17:31.

Olympic gold medal. It was agonising out in the park as well.

We have our own Henman Hill in east London. These are the scenes when

:17:42.:17:48.

there diving was taking place. After four years of hard work and

:17:48.:17:55.

effort, it wasn't to be. Fantastic effort from both of them. It was a

:17:55.:18:01.

4th died, hard way they we leading the Chinese. However, they slowly

:18:01.:18:05.

started to slip back. It did unsettle them. And in that

:18:05.:18:10.

competition being so close, it made the difference. But China looking

:18:10.:18:15.

successful. We can speak to Leon Taylor, as was pointed out quite

:18:15.:18:20.

cruelly in commentary, you know how it feels to finish 4th in his

:18:20.:18:25.

competition? But it was so close to being a silver medal? It just comes

:18:25.:18:30.

down to one mistake. And that is what happened. After leading after

:18:30.:18:36.

the first two round, the third round dive I leapt out of my seat.

:18:36.:18:42.

But it was the all-important fourth round dive, ironically verve best

:18:42.:18:47.

dive. They have been exceptional in training, but when it mattered in

:18:47.:18:51.

the competition, they faltered. What a shame and they left

:18:52.:18:59.

themselves too much to do to get back. That is the two 4th places

:18:59.:19:05.

for Pete Waterfield now. You do feel for them. They do go in the

:19:05.:19:11.

individual events, but that is some consolation. Let's have a look at

:19:11.:19:15.

arguably the dive that had to out of their seat, probably the best of

:19:15.:19:20.

of their seat, probably the best of the competition? Without a doubt.

:19:20.:19:25.

The marks speak for themselves. They are squeezing into the shape.

:19:25.:19:29.

You can see the synchronisation. But that is where it counts,

:19:29.:19:34.

disappearing into the water. Hardly any splash on the entry. That is

:19:34.:19:38.

what you want. They will be gutted they did not do that on their

:19:38.:19:48.
:19:48.:19:48.

fourth round died. -- dive putters into the mindset a of them, they

:19:48.:19:54.

were looking so strong at the halfway stage. How much can as dive

:19:54.:19:58.

affect you for the rest of the competition? It is one of those,

:19:58.:20:04.

you are letting it happen, following the process. Tom came out

:20:04.:20:09.

a little bit too early, and Peter came out a bit too late. Both

:20:09.:20:15.

making a different error. Calling a discrepancy on the synchronisation.

:20:15.:20:20.

They both would have been swimming to the side muttering things under

:20:20.:20:26.

the water. There is no magic rewind button. We must mention the fact

:20:26.:20:30.

that standard in that Aquatics Centre was so high, the crowd had

:20:30.:20:35.

an amazing afternoons. Despite not getting a medal we wanted to for

:20:35.:20:44.

Great Britain. Without a doubt. I am taken aback by the quality. I

:20:44.:20:49.

was running it back. The crowd are going mad behind me. They have had

:20:49.:20:55.

a real treat, even Ukrainians is phenomenal. No one is out there

:20:55.:21:00.

giving anything away. It was about going for broke. I was impressed

:21:00.:21:05.

with Mexico, they went for it. High degrees of difficulties. I cannot

:21:05.:21:12.

believe the dives they are doing. I invented the most difficult dive,

:21:12.:21:18.

and they have done that and gone better. Let's talk to the two men

:21:18.:21:27.

4th place is a horrible place to come in the Olympics, but you have

:21:27.:21:32.

just saluted the crowd? They have been amazing. I'm getting emotional

:21:32.:21:38.

thinking about it will stop to come forth, is so agonising after the

:21:38.:21:44.

hard work and training. We have got our individual event coming up on

:21:44.:21:48.

Friday so hopefully we can get back on our game for that. It was all

:21:48.:21:55.

looking so good after three dives? I don't know why, I kicked a bit

:21:55.:21:59.

high and could not stop it. In this competition you cannot make

:21:59.:22:06.

mistakes. We left ourselves with a lot to do. Our last two dives were

:22:06.:22:11.

brilliant. The others have a higher tariffs, but unfortunately it

:22:11.:22:18.

wasn't meant to be. The crowd were amazing. They would have been

:22:18.:22:21.

lovely to have stirred on the podium in front of them. It on,

:22:21.:22:27.

what was your overall reaction? started off it really well and we

:22:27.:22:36.

got a personal best on offer has two required dives. It was just off

:22:36.:22:43.

4th dive. If you miss the dive in a field like that, you are gone. We

:22:43.:22:48.

did well to come back after diving so badly. It is unheard of to come

:22:48.:22:52.

4th still. We only needed another nine points, which normally we

:22:52.:22:58.

would have been able to do. It is just the way it goes. Sometimes it

:22:58.:23:02.

goes in your favour and sometimes it goes against you. It is annoying,

:23:02.:23:11.

but what can you do? Well done. Understandable, disappointment for

:23:11.:23:16.

them. Let's go back into the aquatic Centre and Liam Taylor. It

:23:16.:23:21.

is amazing how one dive can make or break a competition. The job for

:23:21.:23:26.

Tom and Peters to go away and get their heads right and work out how

:23:26.:23:32.

they attacked the individual? Exactly right. They have a big gap

:23:32.:23:36.

until the individual event. It starts on the 10th with the

:23:36.:23:43.

preliminaries, semi-finals and finals. They will be leaving the

:23:43.:23:46.

Olympic village and going back to their training camps to prepare

:23:46.:23:52.

properly. You can see bide their interview, they were professionals.

:23:52.:23:59.

But that 4th dive will haunt them. They could have had the silver

:23:59.:24:03.

medal, but that could be the driving force over the next two

:24:03.:24:07.

weeks. Because they have to stand in his Aquatics Centre and do it

:24:07.:24:14.

again. Peter is a great diver, has died with you at the Olympics in

:24:14.:24:18.

2004 and picked up a medal. He knows what it is takes. Tom is on

exactly what they are going through. All the expectation and pressure

Daley at 18 is impressive. He won't feel like that. He won't, but we

must not put too much pressure. As we have said, they will be diving
