Apology for the loss of subtitles for 73 seconds

This is the nine that won the set Almost identical places on the

:11:32.:11:42.

has gone just above the 10th. She will be frustrated with that.

:11:54.:12:04.
:12:04.:12:07.

On the line. It has gone down as an eight but I think it will be nine.

:12:07.:12:17.
:12:17.:12:25.

Another eight to end the SEC. -- It is settled with nine. They will

:12:25.:12:31.

not have to check down at the target end, she has done enough to

:12:31.:12:36.

beat Naomi Folkard of Britain and the Mexican goes through to the

:12:36.:12:44.

Disappointment for Naomi Folkard and Alison Williamson who lost her

:12:44.:12:49.

opening round. Our sole survivor in the archery is Larry Godfrey he

:12:49.:12:54.

will be back at Lord's on Friday. We saw a short time ago in the

:12:54.:12:59.

Badminton Rajiv Ouseph going out to the Guatemala. He has been talking

:12:59.:13:07.

to us. Agonising in that final game.

:13:07.:13:16.

I had my chance at 19-18 but didn't manage to take it. Everything was

:13:16.:13:21.

going along, it was whoever was good at the net and at the end it

:13:21.:13:25.

was him. I know you really wanted to win it in front of the home

:13:25.:13:30.

crowd. How much were they willing you one? I think I was exciting to

:13:30.:13:33.

down and I could really help them - - are really hear them and that

:13:33.:13:36.

helped me come back. They have been great the whole tournament and it

:13:36.:13:38.

would have been nice to finish it for them.

:13:38.:13:41.

You with the sole competitor on the court there, the centre of

:13:41.:13:45.

attention from the GB crack, added pressure?

:13:45.:13:52.

We play like this all the time to. Sometimes we are on our own in the

:13:52.:13:56.

hall. I was trying not to think about it too much. When it was

:13:56.:13:59.

getting close to the end I think I made a few silly choices and got

:13:59.:14:03.

punished. There is another chance of playing

:14:03.:14:08.

in front of the home crowd at the Commonwealth Games.

:14:08.:14:12.

I'm only 25 so heavily I can keep playing well. Playing in Glasgow

:14:13.:14:17.

would be a dream. You did us proud and your family

:14:17.:14:21.

are here, you did them proud. Well done.

:14:21.:14:26.

Bad luck and that means all British interest in the badminton is over

:14:26.:14:30.

here at the Olympics. Moving on, women's gymnastics is coming up.

:14:30.:14:34.

First let's briefly take you back to yesterday, it was exciting,

:14:34.:14:38.

amazing, incredible and totally unexpected as Britain's men won

:14:38.:14:42.

their first team event medal for 100 years. The colour of the medal

:14:42.:14:45.

may have been in doubt, first it was silver then it was bronze, but

:14:45.:14:49.

it is an Olympic medal and it was a magnificent team performance, let's

:14:49.:14:59.
:14:59.:15:04.

Britain can get a medal. Terrific from Louis Smith. That was good

:15:04.:15:08.

work, under enormous pressure. door is open, at Great Britain are

:15:09.:15:17.

in third. Can they just hang on? Thank you, very much. Terrific for

:15:17.:15:22.

Kristian Thomas. A everybody here literally on the edge of their

:15:22.:15:32.
:15:32.:15:33.

seats. Wow! Fantastic work from Dan Purvis. Bring it all home, a young

:15:33.:15:43.
:15:43.:16:00.

man. This is down to you. Kristian a special moment. A protest has

:16:00.:16:07.

gone in from the Japanese. Great Britain, after that enquiry from

:16:07.:16:15.

Japan get bronze. What a shame. People in the North Greenwich Arena

:16:15.:16:25.
:16:25.:16:28.

are not happy. We did not expect pressure, a controversy and it had

:16:28.:16:34.

it all. After those dramatic scenes, are we in for more debate? While

:16:34.:16:38.

the women's team led by Beth Tweddle be inspired by the men's

:16:38.:16:44.

success? On paper it looks out of reach, but after what we saw

:16:44.:16:54.
:16:54.:16:56.

What a story that was. I remember her as a little lad watching

:16:56.:17:00.

gymnastics at the Olympics and that is what did it for me. I am sure

:17:00.:17:04.

there will be lots of little boys who want to become the next members

:17:04.:17:10.

of the men's Olympics team. This arena yesterday was absolutely

:17:10.:17:16.

packed. Princes William and Harry were here. I am joined now by

:17:16.:17:23.

gymnastics royalty in the form of all the core but. We will talk

:17:23.:17:26.

about the women's gymnastics in a moment, but what do you make of

:17:26.:17:35.

what the British men achieved yesterday? It was incredible. They

:17:35.:17:42.

were unknown and they won a bronze. Hello, this is the first step and

:17:42.:17:52.

today will be the second. In 1972 that was your Olympics debut. The

:17:52.:17:57.

equalise amongst you may have noticed I have a gold medal. -- the

:17:57.:18:04.

eagle eyes. This is you. Absolutely beautiful. And the elegance, the

:18:04.:18:09.

grace and the execution is mesmerising to watch. These days

:18:09.:18:13.

gymnastics is quite different. Those looking to get medals at the

:18:13.:18:20.

Olympics have to go all out for difficult it. This is the gold

:18:20.:18:27.

medal from the 1972 Munich Olympics. I cannot believe I am holding this

:18:27.:18:31.

false start thank you so much for allowing me to look after it for

:18:31.:18:36.

five minutes. Going back to the point about how gymnastics has

:18:37.:18:44.

changed. What do you make of the current style of gymnastics?

:18:44.:18:50.

years ago the equipment was different. Now the beam is bringing,

:18:50.:18:55.

the floor is springing and the bars are very soft. Of course they can

:18:55.:19:00.

do it with more difficult it, but I would like to see more a grace and

:19:00.:19:07.

I hope we will see tonight or in the final competition the grace.

:19:07.:19:13.

Would you like to have a go on the bouncy floor? This is why I am here

:19:13.:19:19.

in London. I would like to feel like I felt 40 years ago. A you

:19:19.:19:27.

never lose that feeling. Oh, no. For you it was a magical time. Does

:19:27.:19:33.

it feel like it was yesterday? me, yes. I remember everything,

:19:33.:19:41.

everything. What emotions does it bring back? First of all, I would

:19:41.:19:51.
:19:51.:19:54.

like to see another All Go on the floor routine with a smile. Event I

:19:54.:19:59.

did a difficult element and I had a smile at the finish. That's why it

:19:59.:20:06.

is iconic and you have not lost it. It is still there. I have not lost

:20:06.:20:13.

it, I'm still alive. Obviously a lot of gymnasts and under extreme

:20:13.:20:17.

pressure and a lot of the smiles are fake and forced, but your eyes

:20:17.:20:24.

was real. Because it was from my heart. I was born a gymnast and

:20:24.:20:29.

this is my life. We have a Beth Tweddle who is leading the British

:20:29.:20:38.

team. The youngest member is Rebecca Tanni. We caught up with

:20:38.:20:48.
:20:48.:20:56.

her earlier on. The youngest member of all of Team GB. She is

:20:56.:21:00.

performing like a very experienced gymnast. This is Rebecca Tanni from

:21:00.:21:05.

Manchester. She is still at school and started fretting about her

:21:05.:21:10.

exams in May, but was also competing in the European

:21:10.:21:16.

Championships in Belgium. Now she is living out her Olympic dream and

:21:16.:21:23.

it began taking shape in Liverpool. I spend a lot of time here, more

:21:24.:21:32.

time than at home. Calling the shots as is her coach Claire Duffy.

:21:32.:21:36.

She is a very keen, energetic gymnast. You could see she was keen

:21:36.:21:42.

to get in there and give it a go. This team is packed with pop,

:21:42.:21:52.
:21:52.:21:54.

British talent. Elizabeth Tweddle, Hannah Whelan and Jennifer Pinches.

:21:54.:21:59.

I stood looking around the whole gym at once I saw them. I wanted to

:21:59.:22:04.

know what Elizabeth was doing all the time. This year it has been

:22:04.:22:08.

non-stop. I had to train through Christmas, but it was definitely

:22:08.:22:18.
:22:18.:22:27.

worth it. 4 ft 10 and five-and-a- half stone, her nickname is tiny.

:22:27.:22:36.

guess it helps being skinny because I have a lot of power. Because I am

:22:37.:22:44.

skinny my shapes show a bit more. But I have rather a big kneecaps.

:22:44.:22:51.

It is what makes me. What do you think you bring to the British team

:22:51.:22:57.

in terms of the pieces that you do? Generally I always do a good flawed.

:22:57.:23:02.

That is always a good one. I have a good vault, so hopefully that can

:23:02.:23:10.

be good in the team. With Rebecca being 15 she can be either totally

:23:10.:23:16.

overwhelmed by this system -- situation, and there will be an

:23:16.:23:20.

error. Or at she can be oblivious and had a storming competition not

:23:20.:23:26.

knowing what is around her. fired Team GB's youngest athlete

:23:26.:23:32.

seems totally unfazed by life in the Olympic spotlight. What a

:23:32.:23:38.

fabulous routine! For the record, we think you have got lovely

:23:38.:23:43.

kneecaps, Rebecca. You were telling me is interesting fact that when

:23:44.:23:51.

you get a feeling for something off for a certain gymnast, they can win

:23:51.:23:57.

under your power. If I will watch. So you are here, which is great

:23:57.:24:03.

news for Great Britain. They are lying in 5th. As we saw yesterday,

:24:03.:24:10.

anything can happen with the leaders. We never know, but I will

:24:10.:24:15.

keep I ISA and my fingers crossed for Great Britain. That is so good,

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

we are so delighted to hear that. And a word on Beth Tweddle and Will

:24:25.:24:31.

You Be There? Yes, I am going to be there and she will be in that final

:24:31.:24:36.

and she will win. You have heard it there. This is her routine, but

:24:36.:24:41.

obviously very different to your routine. But a word on the

:24:41.:24:51.

difficulty. What do you make of her difficult routine? Now with the bar

:24:51.:24:57.

as it is different and you can do a lot from the bars. You can do it

:24:57.:25:06.

like the men do it on the high bars. Actually, it is not very difficult.

:25:06.:25:12.

But this is very good to see. Indeed, while today is all about

:25:13.:25:17.

difficulty. You have got three scores and they will all count. I

:25:17.:25:22.

am sure all there will be keeping an eye on that extra little

:25:22.:25:27.

execution score. To give you an idea of what is going to be

:25:27.:25:31.

happening over the course of the next two hours. Although core but,

:25:31.:25:37.

thank you so much by joining us. Thank you so much. Here is your

:25:37.:25:46.

mettle. I almost forgot. dimensions demand accuracy as well

:25:46.:25:51.

as artistry from competitors. It has a sprung surfers to eight

:25:51.:25:56.

acrobatic skills, but as it is the narrowest of all Olympic platforms,

:25:56.:26:02.

attention to detail is a must. Gymnasts have 90 seconds to perform

:26:02.:26:08.

a variety of moves that connect one skill to the next. They will use

:26:08.:26:15.

the whole length of the beam to display steps, jumps, acrobatic

:26:15.:26:21.

element and turns. Poor technique and fighting a losing battle

:26:21.:26:29.

against balance will lead to points of deductions. Every routine

:26:29.:26:35.

requires dance elements including a jump with legs in a 180 degree

:26:35.:26:40.

split. There must be acrobatic moves, one of which must be a

:26:40.:26:47.

somersault. And a perfectly formed dismount. Any and planned all to

:26:47.:26:53.

the floor leaves the gymnast with 10 seconds to mount. If you would

:26:53.:27:03.
:27:03.:27:08.

like to get involved in Olympic sports, go to the website. You join

:27:08.:27:14.

us as Canada entered the arena. Great Britain have just come in.

:27:14.:27:21.

What an expectant crowd in the North Greenwich Arena. Sitting

:27:21.:27:27.

alongside me is Christel and Mitch Fenner. Can Great Britain repeat

:27:27.:27:36.

the performance of yesterday? think they can give as good a fight

:27:36.:27:44.

as amended yesterday. I think the girls will fight just as hard.

:27:44.:27:49.

Whether the other teams will crumble as much, I do not know.

:27:49.:27:53.

they have to do is try and keep the consistency and the performance

:27:53.:27:59.

level and that is what the men did. Yes, exactly. I think a top-six

:27:59.:28:04.

finish will be fantastic. It is all credit to them for getting here in

:28:04.:28:09.

this company, it is tough competition. But they look great

:28:09.:28:14.

and I have never seen them look better. They are in train a

:28:14.:28:19.

condition, they are a unit and they are determined. They are a unit and

:28:19.:28:24.

there are wonderful characters in the team. We have got a very

:28:24.:28:27.

experienced Beth Tweddle who we believe is going to go on the floor

:28:27.:28:34.

are. They are going for a big all round score and mean business.

:28:34.:28:39.

exactly, there had been some thought that she would not work the

:28:39.:28:48.

floor, but she feels good and strong. A potential star is Gabby

:28:48.:28:58.

Douglas. Kyla Ross, such a strong team the Americans. We are

:28:58.:29:08.
:29:08.:29:14.

expecting great things from them as Doria commode is such a beautiful

:29:14.:29:21.

gymnast. We are in for such a treat. And Russia looked so good in

:29:21.:29:30.

qualifying. They have determination and strength and resolve. That is

:29:30.:29:40.
:29:40.:29:43.

going to be against the elegance and the accuracy of the Russians.

:29:43.:29:49.

Those top four countries are very strong. China were also much more

:29:49.:29:54.

powerful than we expected. They had problems in training, but they came

:29:54.:30:04.
:30:04.:30:07.

through strongly in competition. talk about the Romanians. It would

:30:07.:30:17.
:30:17.:30:27.

be special to see them make their She is carrying a little bit of an

:30:27.:30:31.

injury. That caused a few problems. If she made a couple of mistakes,

:30:31.:30:41.
:30:41.:30:51.

but a bit of pressure on the others. CHEERING. I was purposely quiet

:30:51.:31:01.
:31:01.:31:12.

they do so you could hear that. How difficult is it to perform

:31:12.:31:20.

against that? It was seething yesterday, it will again today.

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

What a beast it is, for the Brits, in front of his home crowd. Chris,

:31:31.:31:37.

your husband is down there as well. What is the inside information?

:31:37.:31:42.

think the inside information is that neither Hannah Whelan nor a

:31:42.:31:46.

Becky Tunney will do it every piece, they have qualified for the

:31:46.:31:50.

individual all-around final in today's soap they have decided to

:31:50.:31:57.

give them an easier day. But I think everybody is happy. Everybody

:31:57.:32:02.

feels they want to come and really enjoyed the experience. That is the

:32:02.:32:06.

thing, we have seen some at these crumble under the pressure. There

:32:06.:32:11.

is something in this place, it is hard to describe it, it feels cosy.

:32:11.:32:20.

The gymnasts feel at home. It is only 16,000 people, why shouldn't

:32:20.:32:25.

they feel at home? So on times gymnastics is such a solitary sport,

:32:25.:32:30.

the amount of time you put in in the Jim on your own, working, and

:32:30.:32:34.

at some competitions, it has to be said, it is hard to get your cousin

:32:34.:32:43.

there. The crowds are tiny. You are right. It is a big arena but the

:32:43.:32:46.

floor area is quite small. The sides are steeper so you have got a

:32:46.:32:55.

real concentration of sound. It is not a vast. We will have a three-

:32:55.:33:03.

minute warm-up. The first set of gymnasts in each group. USA and

:33:03.:33:10.

Russia together, China and Romania, Great Britain are with Japan. Italy

:33:10.:33:15.

are with Canada. Is that a good match for Great Britain with Japan

:33:15.:33:19.

or would they want the competition of the Russians all Americans?

:33:19.:33:23.

think they probably would have enjoyed that but to be honest I

:33:23.:33:32.

think they are pretty focused on that wasn't a great piece for them,

:33:32.:33:38.

they didn't do their best in qualification. They will be wanting

:33:38.:33:41.

to show everybody they can do quite a bit better than they did in

:33:41.:33:45.

qualifying. Is that good they are starting on it, get it out the way

:33:45.:33:51.

instead of it being on their mind? Yes, I think it is quite good.

:33:51.:33:54.

Because they knew in qualifying they would start on it that is the

:33:54.:33:59.

way they have been practising for the last month also. It is quite

:33:59.:34:08.

helpful it is the same again. I know it Amanda Reading, on the

:34:08.:34:13.

floor with them, personal coach of Bath and Hannah and Jenny was

:34:13.:34:17.

disappointed with their beam performance. Hannah hasn't fallen

:34:17.:34:21.

off the entire time we have been here, and she was disappointed they

:34:21.:34:28.

didn't have a better time. She will be keen. That is Vanessa Ferrari

:34:28.:34:38.
:34:38.:34:45.

warming up on the floor. Coming on a beam. Great Britain and Italians.

:34:45.:34:50.

We start on the vault and the Americans, first up is Jordyn

:34:50.:34:55.

Wieber who controversially didn't qualify in the top 20 for the all-

:34:55.:34:58.

around competition. That was because three gymnasts from America

:34:58.:35:03.

qualified in the top 20 and she was the third, just two gymnasts per

:35:03.:35:12.

country allowed. Really important for her. 6.5 difficulty. She will

:35:12.:35:16.

be very keen to prove to everybody that she is the best gymnast in the

:35:16.:35:23.

USA. That was significantly better than qualifying. The Americans off

:35:23.:35:32.

to a great start. Just three vaults If, and this piece of apparatus is

:35:32.:35:38.

over so quickly so a huge potential for error. Ferlito from Italy, 17

:35:38.:35:47.

years old. She was 5th in this arena at the Olympics tester bed. -

- test event. You can hear the buzz through every performance. Good

reason there was a huge cheer is because Imogen Cairns landed the

:37:45.:37:55.
:37:55.:38:02.

:38:02.:38:11.

-- McKayla Maroney. She lands perfectly. That was fantastic. Legs

:38:12.:38:19.

glued together, it rockets into the air. They are on fire. A I think it

:38:19.:38:23.

is safe to say it America couldn't have done much better than that on

:38:23.:38:28.

the vault. She just drifted down to the ground, high in the air,

:38:28.:38:38.
:38:38.:38:50.

Chinese gymnast, she took Olympic gold in Beijing. She has a

:38:50.:38:55.

beautiful style on this apparatus, spectacular in the release

:38:55.:39:05.
:39:05.:39:12.

combination. She is back into this lovely work she does. Superb. Kexin

:39:12.:39:22.
:39:22.:39:23.

He sharing great class on the uneven bars. Beautiful work, full

:39:23.:39:27.

twist in the .. To finish. It is good at her team-mate it did not

:39:27.:39:37.
:39:37.:39:53.

give much away for. That was really and recovered well. A large wobble

:39:53.:40:02.

but she is still on target. Kexin He. Beautiful. Front somersault,

:40:02.:40:07.

straight into another front somersault, that is the original

:40:07.:40:13.

combination that lifts her routine so high. Straight front somersault,

:40:13.:40:19.

immediately down to the load bar, a bit of loss of Look form but very

:40:19.:40:27.

impressive. Full twisting it double back. Delighted, you can see. Two

:40:27.:40:32.

days in a row she has made that routine. She has grown such a lot

:40:32.:40:37.

in these last four years and struggled to maintain the work.

:40:37.:40:47.
:40:47.:41:06.

Mikaela Maroney -- McKayla Maroney, Chinese gymnasts up on to the bars.

:41:06.:41:10.

Tiny gymnast swings from the lay-by to the high bar so well and then

:41:10.:41:17.

back down. And here we see again this time with half turn, beautiful

:41:17.:41:27.

flight. And now the trademark for turns we see from the Chinese

:41:27.:41:33.

gymnast, so efficient with the extra half turn. That is the

:41:33.:41:38.

release and recapture, all gymnasts must include one of those in their

:41:38.:41:43.

routine. Into the dismount, beautiful double straight. They

:41:43.:41:53.
:41:53.:42:20.

team effort on uneven bars, China. Well-controlled a walkover. She is

:42:21.:42:27.

so fast. She has to fight hard, keeps her eyes on the beam, does

:42:27.:42:35.

very well indeed three up. That was a shame. That was a relatively

:42:35.:42:41.

simple move. She will have been doing that for the last 10 years at

:42:42.:42:47.

least. It just shows you how easy it is for areas to creep in, even

:42:47.:42:52.

on simple moves. She has got all the difficult stuff still to go.

:42:52.:42:58.

She has done the difficult somersaults. Here we go. Just a bit

:42:58.:43:08.
:43:08.:43:09.

jittery now. Lost a little bit of composure. Now the site somersault.

:43:09.:43:17.

Spot it well. This is much better. Moves smoothly along. Big does not

:43:17.:43:27.
:43:27.:43:28.

coming up. First of all Philippe, the change lead. With a half-turn.

:43:28.:43:36.

Now the dismount. A little pause. One back-flip, or two, up into the

:43:36.:43:42.

double pike, well held. A bit of a disappointment for Jenny.

:43:42.:43:51.

disappointing score. 11.833. A lot of work to be done now. But it is

:43:51.:43:56.

the first piece of apparatus. Not much time with three to go. Just

:43:56.:44:06.
:44:06.:44:09.

have to wait and see what happens. Can Hannah Whelan from Great

:44:09.:44:19.
:44:19.:44:22.

Britain do it? She will focus, she is good on this apparatus. A good

:44:22.:44:32.
:44:32.:44:32.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 73 seconds

:44:32.:45:25.

through. The layout quite nicely all the way through. Double pike,

:45:25.:45:31.

but just about rescue deck. Signs of nerves right at the end of that

:45:31.:45:38.

routine. But the good news is the beam is out of the way. Just move

:45:38.:45:48.

on, girls, keep motoring. A bit of a shaky start for Great Britain.

:45:48.:45:58.
:45:58.:46:07.

Three pieces remain. Yes, the men had six chances. A little bit of a

:46:07.:46:12.

disappointing start for the girls. You have just got to put that out

:46:12.:46:17.

of your mind and move on to the next piece of apparatus. Absolutely

:46:17.:46:23.

and they will do that perfectly well. It is difficult starting on

:46:23.:46:33.
:46:33.:46:36.

the beam and it is difficult finishing on the beam. That is much

:46:36.:46:43.

better than her score in qualification. Like you say, they

:46:43.:46:53.
:46:53.:46:54.

need to regroup now. It will be on to the floor for them. Very similar

:46:54.:47:00.

to their score in qualification. Talking about that mentality of

:47:00.:47:07.

putting it out of your mind and moving on. Look at that flight. It

:47:07.:47:14.

is just remarkable. It really is remarkable, all of these gymnasts

:47:14.:47:18.

are dynamic and very good, but she is noticeably better than any of

:47:18.:47:28.

the others. And it is a natural gift. You would analyse that as a

:47:28.:47:35.

coach and say, how do we get that out of all our athletes. She is a

:47:35.:47:45.
:47:45.:47:45.

launch pad. That has been banned over and over. Our trainers laid at

:47:45.:47:54.

one video over her video, but she is just so fast. She is a really

:47:54.:48:00.

strong athlete. The gymnasts from each countries have now gone, so we

:48:00.:48:10.
:48:10.:48:12.

now move on to the second group. This is Allya Mustafina. She is 17.

:48:12.:48:16.

It will be interesting to see how she competes at the Olympics

:48:16.:48:22.

because she has had injuries, and she is almost back on track. It was

:48:22.:48:27.

very good to see her work well in the qualification. That was really

:48:27.:48:36.

very good. She hit it perfectly and launched up well. Very pleased to

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

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 73 seconds

:48:46.:49:43.

keeping them the lead well up. -- attack it. She has to settle down

:49:43.:49:53.
:49:53.:50:23.

moments. The Japanese qualified behind Great Britain. We were

:50:23.:50:28.

impressed by them and they looked really solid. There was good

:50:28.:50:37.

quality and they have been very successful these last four years.

:50:37.:50:42.

That is a good score for that double twist. Although there were

:50:42.:50:50.

some wobbles, she fought well. You can see why she is saying. That was

:50:50.:51:00.
:51:00.:51:31.

That was a big step to the side, but she landed. Give us an idea of

:51:31.:51:39.

the production because it looked huge. About 0.5 because it was a

:51:39.:51:49.
:51:49.:52:01.

apparatus. A good start, a little bit short after the pair are wet.

:52:01.:52:07.

They have done some work on this apparatus. That was a nice

:52:07.:52:17.
:52:17.:52:31.

difficulty, but she went through very well. Her team-mate before her

:52:31.:52:41.
:52:41.:52:43.

scored 14.066. Great Britain can close in on them in bars. That was

:52:44.:52:53.
:52:54.:52:54.

a marked down on her qualifying scorer, reflecting the errors. A

:52:54.:53:00.

nice clear circle with Polperro wet. They have to include a full

:53:00.:53:03.

pirouette of some description in their routine if they want to be

:53:03.:53:09.

marked out of full difficulty. The coach gets so close with his hand.

:53:09.:53:19.
:53:19.:53:20.

If he were to touch her, that would be a 0.5 deduction. The this meant

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

was efficient. A little hop to the side, just. Certainly not one of

:53:34.:53:38.

the highest scorers in the world, but this little gymnast may have

:53:38.:53:45.

something to say about that. This is her first Olympic Games, just 16

:53:45.:53:55.
:53:55.:54:19.

years old. Very nicely done full She generates swing very nicely. It

:54:19.:54:29.
:54:29.:54:29.

is a packed routine with a few empty swings. A big improvement on

:54:29.:54:33.

the other routines from Romania, but not one to challenge the very

:54:33.:54:43.
:54:43.:54:50.

top. They have got to keep Romania in contention of a medal. I think

:54:50.:54:55.

Russia were relying on that that could have threatened the USA score.

:54:55.:55:05.
:55:05.:55:32.

effectively. A lovely twisting run, finishing under control. Clean

:55:32.:55:42.
:55:42.:56:03.

touches to her work. Very confident in all the gymnastic leaps and

:56:03.:56:13.
:56:13.:56:23.

links. Beautifully choreographed. Two-and-a-half twists. The double

:56:23.:56:29.

tuck wrapped it up very nicely indeed. She was well in control,

:56:29.:56:39.
:56:39.:56:53.

beautifully done. The third of the moment, the first time they have

:56:53.:56:58.

qualified for the team final for a long while. They are highly

:56:58.:57:07.

delighted to be here. So far the beam has proved a little bit tricky

:57:07.:57:14.

for the gymnasts. A few wobbles from the Japanese. A steady start

:57:14.:57:24.
:57:24.:57:25.

for Romania. A storming start for the USA. Plenty of little

:57:25.:57:32.

deductions. Her execution score was down in the Sevens. They have never

:57:32.:57:42.
:57:42.:57:57.

been strong on asymmetric bars, the double tuck. She does that

:57:58.:58:04.

beautifully, very nice indeed. Lovely height on the leaks. She

:58:04.:58:14.

lifts up high before she makes the upturn or at the Shay in the air. A

:58:14.:58:24.

relatively simple double tuck to finish. On we go to the second

:58:24.:58:34.
:58:34.:58:56.

piece of apparatus. Great Britain bulls we did not save. I cannot

:58:56.:59:00.

think of any team starting more emphatically than these American

:59:00.:59:10.
:59:10.:59:10.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 73 seconds

:59:10.:59:55.

very good score. The USA each China by quite a hefty margin. -- lead

:59:55.:00:05.
:00:05.:00:10.

Three pieces to go up and Great Britain have Beth Tweddle to go on

:00:10.:00:19.

two pieces of apparatus, the floor and the bars. The teams now all

:00:19.:00:25.

move on. Two teams on to each piece. The Russian team warming up on the

:00:25.:00:32.

bars. Every gymnast gets there few seconds to warm up. Every gymnasts

:00:32.:00:36.

allowed to get the bars just as they like them. This is the

:00:37.:00:42.

Canadian team on the vault. If a team works first on a piece, they

:00:43.:00:48.

were second on the next. Which means the gymnasts rush from the

:00:48.:00:52.

floor to the vault. You can see the Canadians early finishing the floor

:00:53.:00:59.

and this is Romania warming up on the beam. They will be looking for

:00:59.:01:08.

a greet -- great piece here won't they, Chris? They will. Japan start

:01:08.:01:18.
:01:18.:01:18.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 73 seconds

:01:18.:02:27.

gymnasts in qualification all round. good connection into the pipe. Two

:02:27.:02:37.
:02:37.:02:39.

stoops. Could transfer to the lower bar. Plenty of flight back to the

:02:39.:02:48.

high bar. Plenty of time and into for fall twisting double that it

:02:48.:02:58.
:02:58.:03:00.

was sharp, quick. And very nice indeed. I Aliya Mustafina will

:03:00.:03:10.
:03:10.:03:27.

follow. And and Victoria, over. -- good vaulting past. Got into the

:03:27.:03:37.
:03:37.:03:37.

final in 2009 in this arena. She has qualified this year, Canada

:03:37.:03:47.
:03:47.:03:49.

looking to build on that score. Very nicely, that double twist.

:03:49.:03:59.
:03:59.:04:03.

These gymnasts so efficient with the flip action onto the platform.

:04:03.:04:07.

They have had a good start. Halfway through their competition already,

:04:07.:04:14.

the way this format is. wouldn't believe it, would you?

:04:14.:04:20.

really did attack it. Good repulsion upwards. Keeps the twist

:04:20.:04:30.
:04:30.:04:30.

efficient. Just a tiny adjustment. Judges don't have the benefit as we

:04:30.:04:36.

do of seeing it in slow-motion. Unless a stewards inquiry goes in,

:04:36.:04:46.
:04:46.:05:04.

like we saw last night. Canada are shoulders, at 16. She is the

:05:04.:05:14.

Canadian vault champion. 6.3 difficulty. She went back on her

:05:14.:05:20.

heels to ensure a good approach. That it really was a good team

:05:20.:05:27.

effort from Canada. It is good to see two of the Canadian gymnasts

:05:27.:05:37.
:05:37.:06:06.

like we were joined the Japanese on control of the pictures he was

:06:06.:06:11.

seeing. It is the Japanese company doing the coverage. Maybe that is

:06:11.:06:19.

why they are going to favour the floor exercise. There is the

:06:19.:06:29.
:06:29.:06:38.

Olympic champion from 1980. Canada going very well. Canada has the

:06:38.:06:42.

third highest vaulting score in this competition so far with the

:06:42.:06:49.

USA the highest and Russia second. They seem to be struggling to make

:06:49.:06:57.

their minds up of work to go next. If I were them, I would go with the

:06:57.:07:01.

European champion on the bars. Yes, they agree with us. They have been

:07:01.:07:11.
:07:11.:07:13.

listening to you. Victoria needs to do everything she can. Look at the

:07:13.:07:23.
:07:23.:07:38.

wonderfully at the moment. Pirouettes. She knows how to work

:07:39.:07:47.

this apparatus. Just little Benn's legs on the down swings. That was a

:07:47.:07:53.

huge dismount. It was a big routine all the way through. Russia chasing

:07:53.:07:59.

the USA and that will inch them close-up. This is Russia's

:07:59.:08:06.

apparatus aware as the vault is the Americans will stop works with

:08:06.:08:13.

apparent ease. Takes everything a little bit further. Super dismount.

:08:13.:08:23.
:08:23.:08:52.

Olympic champion. Such experience. Double spin, beautifully executed.

:08:52.:09:02.
:09:02.:09:02.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 73 seconds

:09:02.:09:46.

joined element. Beautifully Indeed. The 24-year-old European

:09:46.:09:56.
:09:56.:10:08.

USA but some very good bar workers in the USA? They are not so

:10:08.:10:14.

renowned, really just the one good worker on the bars. But from

:10:14.:10:23.

Catalina Ponor, that was a special been routine. She hardly faltered.

:10:23.:10:33.
:10:33.:10:40.

This one the youngest, 16. A lot of 16 year-olds here. 2.5 twists into

:10:40.:10:50.

the straight front somersault. They are really going for simple work,

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

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 73 seconds

:11:00.:11:42.

but done very well. No execution But not very sophisticated, the

:11:42.:11:52.
:11:52.:11:54.

actual dance. As you said, a young gymnast needs to do a good tumble.

:11:54.:12:01.

So accurate. If you were wondering, what has happened to the British

:12:01.:12:06.

girls. They are in this same group and they will be going next on the

:12:06.:12:10.

floor. Warm-up time will start a very shortly. Russia has finished

:12:10.:12:20.
:12:20.:12:26.

as well. There is there score. consistent scoring. When you look

:12:26.:12:30.

at them on the asymmetric bars, come Byrd to Romania, a huge

:12:31.:12:40.
:12:41.:12:52.

difference. -- compared to Romania. Victoria Komova, top qualifier all

:12:52.:12:59.

round. Those little button earrings she had in will be all the fashion

:13:00.:13:09.
:13:10.:13:10.

now. Would you have expected a higher score than that, Chris?

:13:10.:13:15.

is their top piece. They are not judging particularly highly on the

:13:16.:13:25.
:13:26.:13:27.

beam. Romania have three gold medals, three silver medals and

:13:27.:13:34.

four bronze medals. Last of the Japanese gymnasts. That means it is

:13:34.:13:41.

warm-up time for Great Britain. Important for the first gymnasts to

:13:41.:13:51.

be quicker and off. 14.166. What kind great Britain go on the floor?

:13:51.:14:01.
:14:01.:14:02.

In qualifying we went with 42.5, we are hoping they can do as well.

:14:02.:14:06.

Hoping Jennifer pinches doesn't have any hangover from the beam.

:14:06.:14:16.
:14:16.:14:17.

after a disappointing first piece. That is the way to do it. She was

Now Jordyn Wieber, can they keep this momentum going? A very

floor final. That says everything about Beth. Just two steps and she

and big smiles. First chance to see what the beam has in store for the

:33:11.:33:21.
:33:21.:33:23.

USA. We saw her on the bars performing so beautifully. She can

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

be a little bit uncertain on the beam. But so far it is perfect.

:33:33.:33:43.
:33:43.:33:46.

There is nothing uncertain about this. So emphatic in the way she

:33:46.:33:56.

with their heads on their knees to get it round. Could she windy all

round level? She could do. She is in the same club as Shawn Johnson.

When she saw him competing at the Olympics, she said, that is the

:35:33.:35:43.
:35:43.:35:46.

coach I want. They have to move home to change clubs. Have we got a

:35:46.:35:56.
:35:56.:36:11.

score for Rebecca Tunney? It was a 14.866. Nicely back on course.

:36:11.:36:20.

There is confirmation. Good execution as well. They have

:36:20.:36:30.
:36:30.:36:35.

vaulted very well indeed. It will be Russia's turn next on the beam.

But first, Lu Sui. She is very majestic. A very expressive. That

was Sue Bird into the triple twist. gymnasts are beautifully supple.

:37:46.:37:56.
:37:56.:38:05.

They always show of their wonderful spin as well. Now, she has to do a

:38:05.:38:15.
:38:15.:38:16.

double somersault. Double rotation. She needed an extraordinary

:38:16.:38:21.

performance because she follows a team mate who scored a 12.5 on the

:38:21.:38:28.

floor. The previous gymnasts to her scored 13.7 33. It was very close

:38:28.:38:38.
:38:38.:38:58.

between the USA and China going work the beam. They are going

:38:58.:39:02.

around with the USA and they will have watched the USA perform on the

:39:02.:39:07.

beam. Even though there is a new- found energy within the Russian

:39:07.:39:14.

team, it is still a contrast to the Americans. It is quite a mismatch,

:39:14.:39:19.

that pairing. They look like the weight of the world is on their

:39:19.:39:25.

shoulders. It is a punchy determination of the United States

:39:25.:39:33.

against the grace and elegance of the Russians - it will always be so.

And the worst fall a on Aliya Mustafina's face. -- West forelock.

It was a very charming routine. Look at that for a total. Compare

that with the joined scores America are putting in, over 45 and that

:40:17.:40:50.

move properly. Shoulders up on the back somersaults. So far she has

:40:50.:40:57.

managed to get all of the connections. Just OPs for the

:40:57.:41:02.

simple spin. Bit of a wobble on the side somersault. A difficult move

:41:02.:41:12.
:41:12.:41:25.

because you cannot see the beam as somersault so well. They are also

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

powerful. Same wit that this amounts. Everything looks easy.

:41:35.:41:41.

Kyla Ross so keen to show what she can do on the beam. She did not

:41:41.:41:47.

make the beam final simply because of the rule of three. Two gymnasts

Super, super double straight. They Enormously difficult tumbles and

straight, absolutely marvellous. The second somersault almost goes

:44:26.:44:31.

higher than the first on that. Incredible technique. Everything

:44:31.:44:38.

she did had so much vitality. Romanians were the highest

qualifiers on the floor as a team. She is the first of three four-star

:44:43.:44:53.
:44:53.:45:02.

and that was with a mistake. One of noticed but they used the other

:45:02.:45:07.

pieces to edge back into contention. They will be creeping up quietly,

:45:07.:45:17.
:45:17.:45:18.

you can be sure of that. Russia are yet have a massive mistake on beam.

:45:18.:45:22.

The eagle-eyed may have spotted a small wobble from Aliya Mustafina

deceptive. She is a tiny gymnast gymnasts on beam. She can be

:46:25.:46:57.

wonderful on the beam, she has got fantastically pointed, fingers

:47:07.:47:16.

Russian style but then equally there would be a silly mistake like

:47:16.:47:26.
:47:26.:47:31.

that. She has done super work so far. And a bit of a hop to the side.

:47:31.:47:38.

That really is a big dismount. She should not be too dejected, I have

:47:38.:47:47.

seen her do a lot worse. Russia where in second ahead of China

brilliant but there were errors. Yes, towards the end of the routine.

:48:26.:48:31.

Almost as if her concentration went a bit. I think it is unbelievable

:48:31.:48:38.

how high she was on that. That that relatively simple move and she has

a big wobble on that. Yet another example of going for broke on

difficulty and taking the risk. Big, big scale. -- skill. It still had a

:48:57.:49:01.

lot of good work. I have seen her in the past when something has gone

:49:01.:49:07.

wrong like that, just give up and fall over. If I was her coaches, I

:49:07.:49:17.
:49:17.:49:30.

got an approach which is amazing. A bit of aggression but a lovely

:49:30.:49:39.

style to go with it, of course. Russians and USA will move round to

all with core stability. Good body little dip of the leg but I thought

:51:21.:51:26.

that was a lovely routine, beautiful. Russia doing all they

:51:26.:51:32.

can to stay ahead of China. I would agree. That was a really classy

:51:32.:51:39.

routine. She barely had a wobble. Everything very precise. They are

:51:40.:51:44.

always very good. They put their arms in exactly the right places,

:51:44.:51:49.

it is never left to chance. All perfectly choreographed. The

:51:49.:51:55.

technique was great. Difficult jumps she did as well. Super over

:51:55.:52:05.

splits. Pointed toes. A half turn into walkover. She gets a bonus

:52:07.:52:16.
