of Sweden, with two more riders to come for them. Great Britain have

:00:12.:00:22.
:00:22.:00:24.

three more riders, and here is the first of them. She will know what

:00:24.:00:30.

that is all about. She rode in Montreal for Great Britain, and I

:00:30.:00:39.

bet she has butterflies as any mother would have. On this lovely

horse, High Kingdom. 46.1, it is a a time fault. Just staying ahead of

:02:20.:02:30.

the New Zealanders, and of course Sweden. There is the discussion,

:02:30.:02:38.

but it is game on. Of course it gives the leaders Germany a little

:02:38.:02:47.

more breathing space. She kept her cool because that one ferns was

:02:47.:02:54.

very early, Ian. She was undecided on whether to go between the six or

:02:54.:03:03.

the seven, and really no decision was made. 53.1. She was in 10th

:03:03.:03:09.

place individually. She drops down the individuals, and so now it is

:03:09.:03:15.

Germany. The 25 year-old was a show jumper before she turned her

:03:15.:03:25.
:03:25.:03:25.

attentions to eventing. Sandra Auffarth, certainly one of the

:03:25.:03:30.

young riders that people are talking about in very good terms

:03:30.:03:40.
:03:40.:03:42.

for the future. Yesterday she had four time penalties, lying in

:03:42.:03:49.

eighth place individually. For Germany, this is a round which will

:03:49.:03:53.

count. Great Britain have given them a little bit of breathing

:03:53.:04:03.
:04:03.:04:09.

done a lot of show jumping in the past. Went very high, didn't quite

:04:09.:04:19.
:04:19.:04:21.

go forward over that. Germany, the reigning Olympic champions. They

:04:21.:04:31.
:04:31.:04:43.

to make sure she was ahead of the time. They have got to achieve the

:04:43.:04:49.

speed of 375 metres per minute to cover this ground in the time I'll,

:04:49.:04:59.
:04:59.:05:06.

83 seconds. -- in the time allowed. Germany's advantage has increased,

:05:06.:05:14.

and they will have their fingers on the gold medal now. What a good

:05:14.:05:24.
:05:24.:05:29.

round, another inside the time. that was a very classy round, it

:05:29.:05:37.

was very easy for the horse and Sandra. Never a moment of panic or

:05:37.:05:47.
:05:47.:05:52.

hurrying. Celebrations to come. Cool as a cucumber. The big crowd

:05:52.:06:02.
:06:02.:06:03.

What a gripping time at Greenwich Park. Great Britain's team work in

:06:04.:06:10.

silver medal position going into this, but we have seen three

:06:10.:06:18.

British riders going out and only one of them had a clear round in

:06:18.:06:23.

the jumping. Everyone in turn will go out and it is a question of the

:06:23.:06:28.

scores at the end of that. A good moment for you to join me in the

:06:28.:06:35.

studio, Matt Baker. A sharp intake of breath every time Zara Phillips

:06:35.:06:41.

went over one of the jumps. I do a little bit of showjumping myself,

:06:41.:06:49.

and the key is to get the stride patterns. A man of hidden talents.

:06:49.:06:53.

A little bit of show jumping, and gymnastics on the your belt. It has

:06:53.:06:59.

been exciting at the gymnastics. Last night I could not sleep. At 3

:06:59.:07:03.

o'clock this morning, I was looking at the clock thinking we have such

:07:03.:07:09.

a busy day today because the women go today. It was unprecedented as

:07:09.:07:14.

far as British gymnastics goes. The atmosphere in that place, and just

:07:14.:07:21.

to see them getting their medals. Max would lock there, and Kristian

:07:21.:07:31.
:07:31.:07:36.

Thomas - his composure! -- Max Whitlock.

:07:36.:07:42.

Zara Phillips is just arriving here. You came into the arena with a big

:07:42.:07:46.

smile on your face but you knocked the poll down. How did you feel

:07:46.:07:56.

I had to get on with it. I think Nicola had the same fence down, I

:07:56.:08:01.

wish they hadn't told me. Unfortunately that happens. After

:08:01.:08:04.

that he jumped fantastic, he had such an awesome round yesterday. He

:08:04.:08:08.

lost both front shoes, he is not completely feeling himself this

:08:09.:08:17.

morning. I am just disappointed for the team. I'm really chuffed to

:08:17.:08:23.

bits with him. For I know it is disappointing when you not quondam,

:08:23.:08:28.

you put yourself back a little bit, but overall, the team are in quite

:08:28.:08:32.

a good position for a medal. Yet, but you want to make your team in

:08:32.:08:39.

the best position. Hopefully Mary and Tina can have good grounds and

:08:39.:08:48.

we will see what happens. -- What is it like that -- walking

:08:48.:08:52.

into this arena on a horse you spend so much time preparing, in

:08:52.:08:56.

front of some very important members of your family. The whole

:08:56.:09:00.

week has been an amazing experience. He is an inexperienced horse and he

:09:00.:09:07.

has coped with it really well. The crowd have been unreal. I am glad,

:09:07.:09:13.

after losing two shoes yesterday, he has come out and jumped. He

:09:13.:09:17.

would have been all right if his mother wasn't on him! You shouldn't

:09:17.:09:23.

say that! You have kept very cool. There is a lot of pressure on you

:09:23.:09:27.

in particular, everyone knows the situation. It always looks as

:09:27.:09:32.

though you have got things under control, what is going on... After

:09:32.:09:38.

the second fence! When you build up a partnership with your horse, and

:09:38.:09:42.

you know that everything you have trained for, this is what you have

:09:42.:09:46.

trained for, it is always much better when you are on board.

:09:46.:09:51.

not all over yet. Still four riders to come, keep your fingers crossed.

:09:51.:09:56.

I will keep them crossed. Hopefully Mary and team that will be all

:09:56.:10:06.
:10:06.:10:19.

seen, there are large penalty deductions. Who knows? We are so

:10:19.:10:28.

Great Britain are lying in second going into the final day of this

:10:28.:10:32.

eventing. We're all hoping that this could be the first gold medal

:10:32.:10:38.

of the Games for the team in just 40 years. Is it a step too far?

:10:38.:10:43.

Time will tell. We will be back at Greenwich in a moment. We will show

:10:43.:10:53.
:10:53.:11:05.

This is the final day of them the David Florence wanted to be an

:11:05.:11:08.

astronaut, he will be launching shortly.

:11:08.:11:13.

And as we saw from the men, this is a golden era for British gymnastics,

:11:13.:11:19.

it is the women's turn. I don't think I can have another

:11:19.:11:24.

competition like last night. And swimming's original fly boy,

:11:24.:11:33.

Michael Phelps goes in his signature event. The 200m five.

:11:33.:11:41.

What is in store over the next few moments down at Greenwich? What we

:11:41.:11:51.
:11:51.:11:56.

can now join our commentators for getting warmer, the clouds are

:11:56.:12:04.

higher and you can see on this Tuesday lunchtime, the crowd in a

:12:04.:12:09.

festive spirit, hoping upon hope that Britain can take a medal away.

:12:09.:12:17.

Having said that, it is a real international crowd. The

:12:17.:12:23.

restaurants and dare I say parts -- Baa-Baas have been absolutely full

:12:23.:12:29.

all the way around. -- the restaurants and bars. He how do you

:12:29.:12:39.
:12:39.:12:43.

know about the bars? I walk past camera team here. A large number of

:12:43.:12:49.

cameras. We are seeing so many angles. The history there, behind

:12:49.:12:58.

us, of the Naval College, and what a backdrop. Beyond that, the City,

:12:58.:13:08.
:13:08.:13:19.

full. They are. I think the designer will be pretty happy with

:13:19.:13:28.

his course, to have that number of double clears, four in all, proved

:13:28.:13:33.

it is capable of being jumped. Let's look around the course again,

:13:33.:13:39.

just give us the background. start over and oxer, a long six

:13:39.:13:45.

strides to the planks, the post box has caused a lot of bottoms, turn

:13:45.:13:51.

back to oxer, the gate, another oxer and a complete 360 degrees

:13:51.:13:57.

over the vertical, and seven strides to a one stride double, and

:13:57.:14:04.

then around, or a very wide oxer, and a big circle around to a bright

:14:04.:14:09.

blank and back to this final line of a triple bar -- and upright

:14:09.:14:15.

planks. Back to the combination of the Stonehenge fences and another

:14:15.:14:22.

ending line to the final fence. It is incredibly twisty but that does

:14:22.:14:26.

help to the horses, especially after the cross country, it lets

:14:26.:14:31.

the riders keep them together, long, flat open stretches are more

:14:31.:14:37.

difficult than the twists and turns for the horses at this stage.

:14:37.:14:42.

design of the fences, absolutely beautiful. Irresponsibility of Bob

:14:42.:14:49.

Ellis. He has quite a big team around him -- the responsibility of.

:14:49.:14:55.

They are all course designers on the British show jumping circuit.

:14:55.:15:00.

Kelvin Bywater has been as much involved as anybody. There has been

:15:00.:15:05.

a team who have built defences, some in this country, have done a

:15:05.:15:14.

great Jock -- who have built the fences. They have done a great job.

:15:14.:15:18.

It is the first of two representatives from the team that

:15:18.:15:28.
:15:28.:15:28.

started out for Japan. It is Tanaka, Japan were in 6th place after the

:15:28.:15:32.

dressage. People were thrilled with what they saw from the Japanese

:15:32.:15:42.
:15:42.:16:06.

only jumping for individual honours. Marquee that Laker comes on in a

:16:06.:16:11.

score of 115 and is currently lying in 15th place. Japan, to all

:16:12.:16:16.

intents and purposes, out of the team competition, although they

:16:16.:16:20.

have a score, 1,000 for each of those riders that fell, on top of

:16:20.:16:26.

their other penalties. It doesn't sound great that they have only got

:16:26.:16:29.

two rider still in, but they have equipped themselves incredibly well

:16:29.:16:33.

over this competition and they have looked very professional. The

:16:33.:16:40.

hugely unlucky to have had lost the riders they have. I think they have

:16:40.:16:44.

an incredible team for the future, not just of riders but of lovely

:16:44.:16:51.

horses. I agree. I think everybody has got to try to persuade the

:16:51.:16:53.

Japanese Federation and the team officials what a great job they

:16:54.:16:58.

have done. They go on improving and they will be serious contenders

:16:58.:17:08.
:17:08.:17:14.

with what they have shown here. in stature. Went down to Portugal

:17:14.:17:19.

early to in the season to get those early qualifications. And has just

:17:19.:17:25.

got better and better. Got a lovely feel. This has been a tremendous

:17:25.:17:34.

performance, inside the time. And just the one fence down. Again

:17:34.:17:43.

showing... Sato went so well in the dressage but he sadly had a tumble

:17:43.:17:53.
:17:53.:17:54.

yesterday. This young man, Tanaka, probably one of the sharpest

:17:54.:18:04.
:18:04.:18:21.

coming down the most, second, and also the planks after the gates,

:18:21.:18:26.

they are both of related distances. So often these are the ones that

:18:26.:18:31.

cause the problems, because the horses tend to jump the lines in

:18:31.:18:36.

the stride pattern they have been given. They can often get flat on

:18:36.:18:46.
:18:46.:18:49.

this final day after the cross country. We are with Tim Lips he a

:18:49.:18:59.
:18:59.:19:29.

the second fence. It is a short, bouncy horse. One a way there, I

:19:29.:19:33.

wasn't expecting that. He did come around the corner and not on a

:19:33.:19:38.

great stride and had to do some fiddling to get it right. The horse

:19:38.:19:48.
:19:48.:20:09.

Tim at the end. That is a little bit unexpected. It is a total of 13,

:20:09.:20:19.
:20:19.:20:34.

into the picture. They have not really supported eventing that

:20:34.:20:41.

strongly, despite having a really good event in the Netherlands.

:20:41.:20:51.
:20:51.:20:52.

Belgium, now. Virginie Caulier, she was held this morning. There were

:20:52.:21:00.

no horses that were held, and then reinspect it, that were eventually

:21:00.:21:04.

turned down, they all got through. This was one of them. Currently

:21:04.:21:12.

33rd, 69.5. She was held for quite a long time. The horse, to be fair,

:21:12.:21:17.

didn't look as though there was a problem. He certainly looks quite

:21:17.:21:24.

happy jumping today. The vet and the ground jury have to be very

:21:24.:21:34.
:21:34.:21:48.

overnight. Two riders did not show the final horse inspection, said

:21:48.:21:58.
:21:58.:21:58.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 91 seconds

:21:58.:23:23.

sure she's going to get a time their team. They are currently

:23:23.:23:33.
:23:33.:23:45.

Another one to add a stride in there but he hit it fairly hard and

:23:45.:23:55.
:23:55.:24:03.

there. He is obviously not trusting the horse to keep coming to the

:24:03.:24:13.
:24:13.:24:16.

the sharpest with his front legs. Quite often the course's body goes

:24:16.:24:26.
:24:26.:24:31.

up higher but the legs are rather let's his legs hang, then jumps

:24:31.:24:41.
:24:41.:24:41.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 91 seconds

:24:41.:25:29.

He will get some time faults. completed the Olympics, I think. --

:25:29.:25:39.
:25:39.:25:49.

Marcelo Tosi just happy to have round but had 20 time faults

:25:49.:25:59.
:25:59.:26:31.

yesterday. At the moment in 35th two pieces. Shop in the front and

:26:31.:26:41.
:26:41.:26:42.

the back end shop, but no real flow. -- sharp. He tucks his legs away

:26:42.:26:52.
:26:52.:27:29.

Just inside the time, too. Another double clear round. We have had

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

five of them now. Lionel Guyon it stays on a 70.9. A little bit of

:27:40.:27:45.

salvation for France in what has been a disappointing Olympics for

:27:45.:27:51.

their manager. He got very defensive on that last fence. He

:27:51.:28:01.
:28:01.:28:16.

way he tucked them up. Congratulations from Lauren. I hate

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

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 91 seconds

:28:26.:29:13.

dump the fences on his own if he got the chance. -- jump the fences.

:29:13.:29:23.
:29:23.:29:47.

He is putting every effort into round of his life! Another clear

:29:47.:29:55.

round, this time for Ireland. The Irish have been out of the top

:29:55.:29:58.

flight of world are venting in recent years, but they are coming

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

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 91 seconds

:30:08.:30:59.

right back at the very top. He has won gold medals for Hong Kong and

:30:59.:31:04.

Beijing, for Germany four years ago, and the gold medal in the world's

:31:04.:31:14.
:31:14.:31:29.

in 2006. She went well yesterday, cross country but he looked very

:31:29.:31:39.
:31:39.:31:40.

impressive, if strong. I have not seen this horse as fit as this ever.

:31:40.:31:42.

Karen O'Connor said this morning that she could not believe how

:31:42.:31:52.
:31:52.:32:04.

then it is difficult for him to put it down and make the proper shape

:32:04.:32:08.

over the fence. When he jumps with his head up, he flicks his front

:32:08.:32:18.
:32:18.:32:40.

done it again! She won silver with her husband in Sydney and that was

:32:41.:32:47.

a very professional round again. A little bit too late for America to

:32:47.:32:53.

win a medal here, but staying on 53.8. I don't think she got team

:32:53.:33:03.
:33:03.:33:09.

silver in Sydney, that was us. it bronze? I think so. Right, I C.

:33:09.:33:19.
:33:19.:33:29.

America were in the 6th place at the start of the showjumping. Now

:33:29.:33:38.

coming in, Andrew Hoy, a man who has won three team gold medals and

:33:38.:33:47.

one individual silver. That was behind David O'Connor in Sydney. In

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

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 91 seconds

:33:57.:34:47.

Clayton Fredericks after the cross- improved but I think another year

:34:47.:34:52.

would do him no harm for his physical strength. He has all the

:34:52.:34:56.

talent in the world, but he just sometimes looks a little bit

:34:56.:35:03.

immature and lacking in strength. No time at penalties but fate for

:35:03.:35:13.
:35:13.:35:13.

jumping. -- no time penalties but eight points for jumping. Andrew

:35:13.:35:23.

:35:33.:35:41.

have only got three riders left. is, but it is all you need if they

:35:41.:35:49.

have gone well enough. We are getting nearer the climax of this

:35:49.:35:57.

final jumping phase. Andrew Nicholson, two away from Mary King.

:35:57.:36:02.

The man that won the individual bronze in the World Championships

:36:02.:36:08.

two years ago. So frustrated by that rainstorm that delayed his

:36:08.:36:17.

entry in the dressage. He got 45. In 9th place. He was inside that

:36:17.:36:24.

time beautifully yesterday. A clear round would put him in the hunt for

:36:25.:36:28.

an individual medal and puts New Zealand in the hunt for a team

:36:28.:36:38.
:36:38.:36:38.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 91 seconds

:36:38.:37:48.

him in the medals? He was unlucky at the dressage. That is the man

:37:48.:37:52.

behind the scenes, pulling the strings in the warm-up area. He has

:37:52.:37:56.

donned the New Zealand team no harm whatsoever. He is a true

:37:57.:38:06.
:38:07.:38:07.

professional. Clear round for New Zealand. That means that bronze

:38:07.:38:12.

medal for certain is looking much more rosy for them. The last one to

:38:12.:38:22.
:38:22.:38:27.

come for New Zealand will of course there, and now it is a young 21-

:38:27.:38:37.
:38:37.:38:46.

year-old from Sweden, led a spade and tart with Shamwari, 44.1. --

:38:46.:38:49.

Ludvig Svennerstal. He had a nasty moment in the horse inspection this

:38:50.:38:59.
:39:00.:39:00.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 91 seconds

:39:00.:40:15.

least one top rider to go. Now, the crowd welcoming Mary King, Mary

:40:15.:40:23.

King! Mary Kane, Imperial cavalier, and with that pressure from New

:40:23.:40:28.

Zealand, Mary King needs a clear to keep Great Britain in that silver-

:40:28.:40:37.

medal position. Fresher! 51 years old, her 15th consecutive

:40:37.:40:43.

championship. There has been no more important round in her career,

:40:43.:40:53.
:40:53.:41:16.

She is doing a very good job, she rode the first two fences so

:41:16.:41:26.
:41:26.:42:04.

just the last! She needs to clear this to keep silver in touch, yes!

:42:04.:42:14.

Yes! She is within a fence of the lead for the individual gold. Now

:42:14.:42:20.

the temperature suddenly rises, and the royal party enjoyed that moment,

:42:20.:42:30.
:42:30.:42:43.

as 20,000 people do here in guests here watching this, but what

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

it needs is Michael Jung, if he goes clear... Or if he has just one

:42:53.:43:03.
:43:03.:43:10.

time fault, Germany when the gold. situation as we watched Mary

:43:10.:43:18.

celebrate, and that, let me remind you, situation over Martin Young,

:43:28.:43:28.

that is if he has fences down. That is why Michael Jung is now in a key

:43:29.:43:33.

position. He will know that, that is why you have managers and

:43:33.:43:39.

officials. Michael Jung, the reigning world and European

:43:39.:43:45.

champion. A clear round not only will win it for Germany, with one

:43:45.:43:51.

rider still to come, but it will also put him in touching distance

:43:51.:43:56.

of all three titles, world, European and Olympic. That has

:43:56.:44:03.

never ever been done before. 4th individually, 40.6, clear to win

:44:03.:44:13.
:44:13.:44:17.

its war with one time fault for 150 around the big shows in Germany

:44:17.:44:23.

very regularly. Brilliant line around that fence. The kindest we

:44:23.:44:26.

have seen all day. He is just a little bit loose in front, the

:44:26.:44:36.
:44:36.:44:46.

horse. He has tapped one or two suddenly leaps into the air, giving

:44:46.:44:51.

the next one a lot more air! just needs to touch one a little

:44:51.:45:00.

harder for the Brits! Sorry, did I say that?! What a pace! He is

:45:00.:45:10.
:45:10.:45:21.

certainly very well aware of the just the last! And it could be

:45:21.:45:27.

Germany's gold, it is Germany's gold! They have retained their

:45:27.:45:37.
:45:37.:45:51.

touch of the travel -- treble. we have to give him credit for that,

:45:51.:45:55.

he jumped a brilliant round, and the Germans have done a brilliant

:45:55.:46:00.

round. There is his father. He has been so much part of Michael's

:46:01.:46:05.

development. Confirmation that Germany have got gold, but it is

:46:05.:46:13.

the silver and bronze now that is the battle. Yes, the Germans have

:46:13.:46:18.

really gone incredibly well. I am slightly gutted for the Brits, you

:46:18.:46:22.

know, they haven't got a chance of the gold now, but they have got to

:46:22.:46:27.

hang on to that silver-medal position, and then we have got the

:46:27.:46:32.

excitement of the individual competition later today. Well, we

:46:32.:46:36.

have got one individual rider very much in touch of an individual

:46:36.:46:41.

medal. Could we have two with Tina Cook still to come, the last

:46:41.:46:50.

British rider? Now it is Jessica -- Jessica Phoenix for Canada. Canada,

:46:50.:46:58.

who have had a disappointing games. They have only two riders left.

:46:58.:47:01.

Sadly, Hollie Bannatyne word, Peter Barry and Rebecca Howard all went

:47:01.:47:11.
:47:11.:47:12.

out yesterday. Now it is Jessica Phoenix, Exponential. Jessica rode

:47:12.:47:17.

a brilliant round yesterday. She came up with an incredible time.

:47:17.:47:21.

She has at the gates down already, the horse is just fighting her a

:47:21.:47:31.
:47:31.:47:45.

bit. He is a very good jumper, we Another one away, that is an

:47:45.:47:50.

expensive round for Jessica, three down so far, the final fence to go.

:47:50.:48:00.
:48:00.:48:31.

And there is a time fault or two. last line riders, the gold is

:48:31.:48:41.

Negishi, pretty Darling, who jumped a lovely cross-country round

:48:47.:48:57.
:48:57.:49:03.

original five, but three of them did not get around yesterday, and

:49:03.:49:13.
:49:13.:49:17.

they are down to just two riders. Their first rider went for one

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 91 seconds

recovery. Now you have just got to this round. It started off a little

:50:27.:50:37.
:50:37.:50:37.

bit Iffy, but the off is looking more open now in his jump. He rode

:50:37.:50:42.

in the World Equestrian Games in Kentucky. You do not get many

:50:42.:50:45.

opportunities, but he certainly produced a good performance to

recover from that. The team there, Yoshiaki Oiwa. So Atsushi Negishi

:50:58.:51:08.
:51:08.:51:09.

has 12 jumping. Fantastic, you and Imperial Cavalier seemed to be in

:51:09.:51:14.

synch today. Yes, he did feel quite tense, he did not feel like the

:51:15.:51:18.

Archie I am used to, he was jumping a little bit flatter, but he was a

:51:18.:51:23.

good boy, he jumped high enough to clear them, thank goodness.

:51:23.:51:27.

recovered well from the cross country yesterday. Obviously we are

:51:27.:51:30.

not going to win gold now, Michael Jung has gone clear, but still a

:51:30.:51:35.

superb performance. Yes, we were asked hoping there was a chance of

:51:35.:51:39.

us overtaking the Germans, but they have put in a great performance and

:51:39.:51:42.

they have deserved it, they have done better than we have. Fingers

:51:42.:51:46.

crossed we can hang on to the silver medal position. Was that the

:51:46.:51:50.

most important round of jumping you have had in your career? 6 the

:51:50.:51:55.

Olympics? Ba, gosh, I suppose it must have been. I do not know, you

:51:55.:52:00.

just sort of do what you have to do on the day. I have been fortunate

:52:00.:52:04.

enough to do a few over the years, at championships, but this is

:52:04.:52:07.

special in front of the home crowd, and they are so supportive, it has

:52:07.:52:11.

been awesome how great the crowd has been. You can enjoy them out to

:52:21.:52:30.

use, Britain at the moment up 0.2 ahead of New Zealand's score, and

:52:30.:52:35.

New Zealand are 11 ahead of Sweden with one rider to come for each.

:52:35.:52:38.

Make a cup of tea and relax for a minute, because the last three

:52:38.:52:44.

rounds are going to be nerve- racking. You might need a little

:52:44.:52:49.

nip of whisky in there as well! wouldn't go against that! This is

:52:49.:52:56.

the individual rider from Cheshire, Andrew Heffernan, going very well,

:53:06.:53:25.

my 30th, Riding for the Netherlands He has gone well in his very first

will be disappointed about having a atmosphere, no doubt about that. As

:58:57.:59:04.

with a great chance of gold. They got gold in the team, but he had a

:59:04.:59:08.

chance in the individual and had a disastrous round that put him out

:59:08.:59:14.

of all medals. He is 25th at the moment, so no hope of medals for

:59:14.:59:24.
:59:24.:59:41.

late. He had a brilliant time for quite some years. It takes a few

years to build up a string of good, the horse out, and the horse

:00:09.:00:12.

injured himself in the thunderstorms in the stable. He has

cleanest jumper in the world but he has done a brilliant job. A couple

:00:37.:00:44.

of time faults but clear over the crowd, the big French contingent.

:00:44.:00:50.

Let me tell you now, we are getting down towards Tina Cook. She comes

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

in five rounds's time. I have just had a text message from a Canadian

Ireland are pushing New Zealand and of this horse. As not quite

delivered. 47.1 was good in the dressage, but probably not as good

as we all expected. One of the world's best cross-country riders.

:04:09.:04:19.
:04:19.:04:54.

riding will have to be powerful to keep the horse focused on his job.

:04:54.:05:00.

It now means that Ireland have definitely gone ahead of the USA.

:05:00.:05:09.

They will finish at least six. Ireland will be thrilled.

:05:09.:05:17.

Extraordinary tale carriage, this horse. It has been damaged in the

:05:17.:05:27.
:05:27.:05:40.

Australia, too, they will the 5th. That round improved as it went on,

but of that unfortunate stop and lots of time LT's. -- penalties.

USA finish on a low point. Very disappointing. That was a pity. The

:06:11.:06:17.

horse ploughed into the middle of the fence. He said he was not keen

:06:17.:06:25.

on it. He looked a little bit jarred when he started. He warmed

:06:25.:06:33.

up when the round went on. Captain Mark Phillips bows out after this

:06:33.:06:36.

Olympic Games. He was very hopeful of pushing the best. It has not

:06:36.:06:46.

like a bright light in this jumper. They threw it away last

:07:03.:07:13.
:07:13.:07:34.

ahead of Ireland. He was a class act yesterday. They went out so

:07:34.:07:37.

early and were so convincing and they made it look like child's play.

:07:37.:07:47.
:07:47.:07:48.

And without carrying, which was so impressive. -- hurrying. Trying to

:07:48.:07:58.
:07:58.:08:11.

because he has had a lot of lives. Ireland sneak 5th ahead of the

:08:11.:08:17.

Australians and the Americans. I do not think that would have been a

:08:17.:08:27.

position that the Irish could have dreamt of. Australia have not

:08:27.:08:34.

really produced their best. But now we are into the real battle. Gold

:08:34.:08:44.
:08:44.:08:50.

Zealand, Britain and Sweden. Mark Todd, two individual Olympic golds

:08:50.:08:56.

back in 1984 and 1988, the great Charisma, and now he is riding

:08:56.:09:01.

Campino to try to win a silver for New Zealand. Remember, Britain are

:09:02.:09:10.

just 0.2 of a penalty ahead, not even a time fault in it. And then

:09:10.:09:14.

there is 11 between New Zealand and Sweden, Sweden at the moment lying

:09:14.:09:24.
:09:24.:09:46.

individually on 39.5. He could win, if he goes clear, a third

:09:46.:09:56.
:09:56.:10:06.

year. So we know he is... That is one away! Not almost the most

:10:06.:10:10.

reliable in this phase. It gives teenage bit more breathing space

:10:10.:10:18.

for Great Britain, the last rider to come. Maybe that individual gold

:10:18.:10:21.

which will be decided this afternoon has gone out of the

:10:21.:10:31.
:10:31.:10:51.

window with that fence down for get a time fault. He has got four

:10:51.:11:01.
:11:01.:11:02.

jumping, three-day time. -- 3 time. That seven means that Britain has

:11:02.:11:07.

got a little bit more breathing space for Tina Cook. 7 To Add, four

:11:07.:11:17.
:11:17.:11:21.

still Britain at one to come, and that is the one that could put

:11:21.:11:26.

Britain back in silver position ahead of New Zealand. Andrew

:11:26.:11:30.

Nicholson just having a word with them. So close, they have been at

:11:30.:11:37.

the top of the world, and at the top of New Zealand sport now since

:11:38.:11:43.

1980, 32 years! It is along time, and it is still good to see them

:11:43.:11:47.

there. Now the young lady from Sweden, her sister has already

:11:47.:11:54.

jumped, of course, on the mare that bred this smashing grey horse, Wega,

:11:54.:12:01.

11 years old. She is married to Frank Ostholt, won gold four years

:12:01.:12:08.

ago. Individually, she is on the same score as Ingrid Klimke for the

:12:08.:12:18.
:12:18.:12:24.

warp jumping, Britain will definitely win bronze. So that is

:12:24.:12:28.

the situation. This is a young horse. When the pressure was on

:12:28.:12:33.

last year, she did have a stop and went quickly down to 11th place,

:12:33.:12:37.

having been right in the thick of it, but she is a very good jockey,

:12:37.:12:42.

and I bet she has learnt from that nightmare. And it is a very good

:12:42.:12:52.
:12:52.:12:58.

jumper! It has given the first saying it would never do the time,

:12:58.:13:01.

and he just cruised around the cross-country, so I take it all

:13:01.:13:11.
:13:11.:13:23.

all-round performance if she could stay on that. You have to say, if

:13:23.:13:27.

she could, she would go into the final individual round probably as

:13:27.:13:37.
:13:37.:13:43.

an Olympic individual gold medal in eventing? -- girl. That is also a

:13:44.:13:49.

possibility of stock hole, inside the time, she looks up at their

:13:49.:13:54.

clock, and it is that OK! Magus Goes clear, Sweden still in with a

:13:54.:14:01.

chance of bronze. -- Wega Goes clear. Britain have got to work.

:14:01.:14:07.

The individual title is also there. Could she be the first lady to win

:14:07.:14:15.

a gold medal individually in this sport? Still so much action to

:14:15.:14:25.
:14:25.:14:30.

Cook, then, still to come, and that is the situation. Tina Cook, Miners

:14:30.:14:40.
:14:40.:14:56.

the bronze, less than seven will It is in your hands, Tina! That is

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

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 91 seconds

:15:06.:16:06.

lost the European title through time. Mo von, Tina, move on! Move

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

still there for Great Britain! Tina Cook is still in mare for an

:16:20.:16:26.

individual medal as well, finishing on 43, and Tina Cook shows why she

:16:26.:16:35.

is one of the best in the world. Miners Frolic, after that

:16:35.:16:40.

disastrous problem last year, has really performed out of his skin!

:16:40.:16:46.

Everybody loves that! Well done, Tina Cook! Disappointing not to win

:16:46.:16:52.

gold but they have given it their best. Look at that, less than two

:16:52.:16:57.

behind Germany, so close. Peter Murphy, the man who has been

:16:57.:17:05.

outside worming them up. -- warming. So Tina herself is in with a chance

:17:05.:17:12.

of another individual medal, what a performance! She is within one

:17:12.:17:17.

fence of the leader. We are going to have another nail-biting finish

:17:17.:17:23.

to that individual set of medals, too. One left to jump. They have

:17:23.:17:31.

already got Team gold, but this now is a round very much involved in

:17:31.:17:35.

the individual, because it is Ingrid Klimke, Butts Abraxxas. She

:17:35.:17:39.

was in touch of a European individual title last year and

:17:39.:17:44.

sadly threw it away at the jump in. She is on that same score as Sara

:17:44.:17:52.

Ostholt with Wega, 39.3, so she has got to jump clear to stay in touch.

:17:52.:17:59.

One fence down would make it a real uphill struggle for her. She is a

:17:59.:18:04.

lady who comes from a wonderful family. Her father was one of their

:18:04.:18:10.

outstanding dressage riders of the century, won a number of gold

:18:10.:18:20.
:18:20.:18:27.

medals for Germany. Can his he has not been the most reliable

:18:27.:18:35.

in the showjumping. Yeah. Well, all one can say is that it moves Tina

:18:35.:18:45.
:18:45.:19:00.

Cook nearer to a medal, as indeed horse is, sadly, not as talented in

:19:00.:19:10.
:19:10.:19:13.

his face as he is the other two. -- individual next is the world and

:19:13.:19:23.
:19:23.:19:35.

just starts to come down in this final round of the 18 combination,

:19:35.:19:42.

she will get a gold medal, as she did four years ago, when they're as

:19:42.:19:51.

Olympic gold. -- won there and then take gold. It has been such a close

:19:51.:20:01.
:20:01.:20:10.

Waving to the huge crowd. Hardly a seat in house. And there is her

:20:10.:20:18.

husband saying, we have got a team gold medal, well done. Hugely

:20:18.:20:28.
:20:28.:20:37.

supportive, what a job he has done Great Britain and bronze for Sweden.

:20:37.:20:43.

There it is, Ireland, a tremendous performance. In fact, New Zealand

:20:43.:20:51.

get the bronze. Get it right! Sweden, so close. People thought

:20:51.:20:58.

that they were a good team to watch, but it has been a classic, as we

:20:58.:21:03.

thought, right down to the wire. Yes, very exciting competition, and

:21:03.:21:07.

we have got more to come with the individuals later, but the teams

:21:07.:21:12.

will also close at the end, and we said right from the word go that

:21:12.:21:17.

any of the top seven teams could have won gold, and it has been

:21:17.:21:25.

really close, and you can see that by the results. Ingrid and 13, very

:21:25.:21:33.

happy and celebrating. -- 13th. They certainly are, and that is a

:21:33.:21:41.

good chef, isn't it? She really was on the brink of being a potential

:21:41.:21:48.

winner of the gold medal. But it is not to be. Two Olympic team gold

:21:48.:21:55.

medals, teenagers congratulating her. -- T there just. And of course

:21:55.:22:00.

at the moment she is lying in fourth place, all within a fence.

:22:00.:22:10.
:22:10.:22:13.

Thank you! Well, popping in from behind was William Fox-Pitt's wife.

:22:13.:22:21.

She just Aviana a big kiss on the cheek! How, not the cheek! And I

:22:21.:22:27.

must say, it has been a competition worthy of the 2012 Olympics here in

:22:27.:22:37.
:22:37.:22:48.

A well deserved drink of water, Tina, knowing the pressure he were

:22:48.:22:58.
:22:58.:23:02.

under, that you had to go clear, It is one of the things that you

:23:02.:23:05.

think about and you think it will not happen to you. I just focused

:23:05.:23:11.

on jumping a clear round. The team have done so well and it was so

:23:11.:23:14.

close. We could have got silver or nothing and that would have been

:23:14.:23:18.

awful. Gold would have been brilliant and so will those

:23:18.:23:22.

fantastic. There is another round to come and you have got to keep

:23:22.:23:28.

your cool. The way that your horse responded, a year ago you horse

:23:28.:23:33.

looked like he was going to die and here he is being a star for you.

:23:33.:23:38.

know! It is like a fairy tale. Champions. The vets kept him alive,

:23:38.:23:43.

and the team at home, they got him here. It has been stressful. Lots

:23:43.:23:47.

of grey hairs and wrinkles. When it comes to the crowd, it is

:23:47.:23:52.

unbelievable, but we have to go in again. Going into the arena for the

:23:52.:23:58.

last round of show jumping, it did you chat to the rest of the team?

:23:58.:24:01.

Were they telling you what to do? Did you take the advice on board?

:24:01.:24:05.

You have got to listen to your trainers! They keep you focused,

:24:05.:24:12.

they tell you what to do, when to come in, how many strides, and the

:24:12.:24:16.

speed. I got one time fault and that is frustrating because it has

:24:16.:24:20.

dropped we one individual place. But we have jumped clear and we

:24:20.:24:26.

have to do better next time and jump clear again. Bronze medals in

:24:26.:24:31.

Beijing, Hong Kong, and now silver. This is a special moment. It is

:24:31.:24:37.

brilliant for equestrian and it is brilliant for our sport. It shows

:24:37.:24:41.

how many people are watching. We are going back in to get an

:24:41.:24:44.

individual medal, which is what I really want. Will it be difficult

:24:44.:24:50.

to refocus? No. We will go away. It will be a different course. We are

:24:50.:24:55.

on the button and we will see what they build for us. Imagination. Get

:24:55.:25:05.
:25:05.:25:07.

us another one, will you? I will be 25 that go through to the

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

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 91 seconds

:25:17.:26:16.

silver for Great Britain. I hope you have enjoyed it.

:26:16.:26:21.

Yes, we certainly did. Everybody has been glued to their screens,

:26:21.:26:25.

including a certain Clare Balding, at the Aquatics Centre. She could

:26:25.:26:29.

not leave. What did you make of that? We almost thought it was

:26:29.:26:34.

going to be bronze at the end. know, it was so close. Everybody

:26:34.:26:39.

has deserted me, the camera crew have gone, only the divers

:26:39.:26:42.

practising for later behind me. I was sitting here watching the

:26:42.:26:46.

television. I thought Mary King was fantastic. Everybody is talking

:26:46.:26:51.

about her age, 51, the BT at a 6th Olympic Games. This is a woman who

:26:51.:26:59.

broke her neck in 2001. -- competing at her 6th Olympic Games.

:26:59.:27:03.

We heard the story about the horse and how he nearly died. He had to

:27:03.:27:08.

have three blood transfusions and that was any one year ago. The

:27:08.:27:16.

spring of last year, she made reference to the film that was made

:27:16.:27:20.

about Bob Champion. Her father trained that horse and he died in

:27:20.:27:25.

February this year, so it has been an emotional time 14. She has a

:27:25.:27:30.

brilliant ability to focus. -- and emotional time for her. I would

:27:30.:27:35.

love to see her and Mary King winning individual medals as well.

:27:35.:27:39.

Team silver is great. It was a lovely piece that you did with the

:27:40.:27:43.

team yesterday, sitting down and asking them if the team is good

:27:43.:27:49.

enough to get gold. It is awful that we keep saying, is this cold?

:27:49.:27:56.

Is this cold? But they got a bronze in Beijing and silver the time

:27:57.:28:01.

before that. Will they be thrilled with silver? They will be. The

:28:01.:28:04.

Germans were hot favourite but that is because they are good at

:28:04.:28:08.

dressage. You have to build a cross-country course that will not

:28:08.:28:11.

course problems but create distinctions. If the cross-country

:28:11.:28:15.

course was as big as Burlington, Great Britain would be favourites

:28:15.:28:19.

because they are generally a better cross-country nation. Germany have

:28:19.:28:23.

improved in that department. Showjumping is important for the

:28:23.:28:26.

individual medals because you have to do it twice. I think they will

:28:26.:28:30.

be really proud of themselves for that. She said that Germany

:28:30.:28:39.

deserved it because they were better than them. They get to go in

:28:39.:28:42.

for one more ring, but then the dressage is added to the cross-

:28:42.:28:45.

country, then that is added to two different rounds within the

:28:45.:28:50.

showjumping. Yes, for people that what pure showjumping, they go over

:28:50.:28:58.

very tiny fences. The three days of competition, the dressage and

:28:58.:29:02.

cross-country, takes a lot out of them, so being accurate on the show

:29:02.:29:06.

jumping is very difficult. Being accurate twice is even harder with

:29:06.:29:09.

the crowd and the intensity. The gold medallist will have deserved

:29:09.:29:15.

it. You going to go for a swim? They yes, I will jump of that ten-

:29:15.:29:21.

metre platform! Thank you for joining us. Have some downtime. We

:29:21.:29:26.

apologise for the technical problems then. She had no sound man.

:29:26.:29:30.

Hopes are high that Euan Burton could be the first judo medal since

:29:30.:29:35.

Kate Howey in Sydney in 2000. After a disappointing Beijing Olympics,

:29:35.:29:39.

the 33 year-old from Ascot got bronze at the European and World

:29:39.:29:49.
:29:49.:30:08.

Championships in 2010. Let's see was expecting to fight. It is the

:30:08.:30:18.
:30:18.:30:26.

see off the bloke from Montreal. You cannot estimate anyone in the

:30:26.:30:31.

Olympic Games. This man has beaten the No. 3 seed, meaning he has come

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

Euan Burton told us that he knew he would be nervous at the spot macro

:30:41.:30:49.

and he was looking forward to them. -- at this point. He said that

:30:49.:30:53.

nerves are good because it shows that it matters. All that hard work.

:30:53.:31:03.
:31:03.:31:15.

Second Olympics for Euan Burton. Expectations were sky high in

:31:15.:31:19.

Beijing. He made it to the quarter- finals and lost to some fighters

:31:19.:31:23.

who took bronze medals that day. That offered him some consolation.

:31:23.:31:27.

He has been waiting four years for this moment to show us what he is

:31:27.:31:37.
:31:37.:31:37.

capable of. He is 33. The Canadian is making his Olympic debut. And

:31:37.:31:47.
:31:47.:32:21.

Euan Burton really pushing into his opponent, tried to provoke a

:32:21.:32:31.
:32:31.:32:36.

He has been thrown. The Canadian dropped under his strong arm.

:32:36.:32:42.

is it. That is the beauty of judo and the horrifying nature of it. In

:32:42.:32:45.

a split-second, Euan Burton has been thrown for an ippon. All the

:32:45.:32:52.

hard work, the four years of waiting, and he has been dumped out

:32:52.:32:58.

in less than a couple of minutes. How on earth do you digest that

:32:58.:33:08.
:33:08.:33:11.

The Canadian quick to see his opportunity dropped under the arm.

:33:11.:33:15.

Euan Burton tried to stay in a bridge, but if you land in a bridge,

:33:16.:33:22.

that is ippon. Judo can be a very cruel sport, no more so than what

:33:22.:33:32.
:33:32.:33:34.

I really do not know what to say. Clearly a very emotional moment

:33:34.:33:40.

right now. You talked about experiencing nerves before coming

:33:40.:33:44.

into today. Do you feel that had anything to do with what we just

:33:44.:33:49.

saw happen? I don't think so. I did not feel particularly nervous in

:33:49.:33:53.

the warm-up room. It is the best I have felt before fighting in the

:33:53.:33:57.

warm-up area for a long time. I did my weights really well. Sometimes

:33:57.:34:01.

if that is not great you can feel a bit sick and I did not feel any of

:34:01.:34:07.

that. I felt sharp and fresh. I did not feel nervous when I walked out.

:34:07.:34:17.
:34:17.:34:17.

The crowd were fantastic. I felt like I could dominate the fight. It

:34:17.:34:20.

is a technique that I know that he has got and that is the

:34:21.:34:24.

disappointing thing. They said to me in the warm-up room to be

:34:24.:34:27.

careful that I did not get my shoulder court because sometimes

:34:27.:34:31.

when he is being pressed and dominated, he manages to have your

:34:31.:34:38.

shoulder and catch you that way. Pretty difficult to process at the

:34:38.:34:44.

moment. Was it just a mistake? was a beautiful bit of judo, that

:34:44.:34:49.

is what it was. If I say it is a mistake, that is a disservice to my

:34:49.:34:54.

opponent. He caught me with a beautiful bit of judo. He has

:34:54.:34:57.

disposed of the current Olympic champion. He pretty much disposed

:34:57.:35:03.

of me. He is having a great day, which is what you need to do on the

:35:03.:35:07.

Olympic Games Day. I all that hard work and graft ended like that. Can

:35:07.:35:13.

you take any positive from that? None whatsoever. I feel like I have

:35:13.:35:17.

let myself down. I feel like I have let my coaches down. I feel like I

:35:17.:35:22.

have let anybody I've ever trained with down. I let my mum and dad and

:35:22.:35:31.

my brother down. I have been working for this for over a quarter

:35:31.:35:36.

of a century. I am pretty sure you will not see me in the Rio Games.

:35:36.:35:40.

No positive to be taken from it. am sure the people you mentioned do

:35:40.:35:45.

not feel that way. Is this the end for you? I don't know if it is the

:35:45.:35:48.

end of my judo competitive career but it is probably the end of my

:35:48.:35:51.

Olympic Games career and certainly the end of my Olympic Games this

:35:51.:35:57.

time around. I wish I could have done a bit more for the people that

:35:57.:36:01.

have come down to watch. I know I could have done. Like I say, I felt

:36:01.:36:06.

great in the warm-up area. I felt like the tournament was mine for

:36:06.:36:10.

the taking. There are some great guys out there and I am short the

:36:10.:36:16.

people that have come down got to experience some great judo. -- I am

:36:16.:36:20.

sure. I also know they wanted to see me on top of the rostrum and I

:36:20.:36:23.

am sorry about that. Thank you for speaking to us.

:36:23.:36:28.

Thank you indeed for sharing those thoughts, Euan Burton. Of course we

:36:28.:36:30.

are screaming at the television that you did not let yourself down.

:36:30.:36:34.

You went out and did everything that you possibly could. But that

:36:34.:36:38.

The climax of the equestrian three-day event team competition. Team GB won a bronze in Beijing in 2008, but it has been 40 years since GB last won gold. Can the 2012 team, featuring William Fox-Pitt and Zara Phillips, put that right?
