past few days. Ben Ainslie is the greatest Olympic sailor of all time.

:01:52.:02:01.
:02:02.:02:06.

He spent much of this week chasing the man standing to his right. If

might have noticed that a lot of presenters have been out and about

a different venues but Gary has been keeping this seat warm.

:03:36.:03:40.

Tonight, he is over there in the Olympic Stadium ready to witness

:03:41.:03:45.

what promises to be another memorable evening of athletics.

:03:45.:03:55.
:03:55.:03:56.

Surely, surely it can't match what Rowing had delivered in the morning,

:03:56.:04:00.

cycling in the evening. What now would light up the night?

:04:00.:04:04.

COMMENTATOR: She has given us a magnificent seven events already.

:04:04.:04:08.

She is going to be the Olympic champion. Everybody is on their

:04:08.:04:14.

feet. Jessica Ennis is the Olympic champion, best all-round athlete in

:04:14.:04:24.
:04:24.:04:29.

Oh my goodness, just remarkable. Greg Rutherford is the Olympic

:04:29.:04:39.
:04:39.:04:40.

champion. And 24 minutes after Mo Farah is kicking on. Has he got

:04:40.:04:44.

enough? He is going for it. It is going to be a glorious, glorious

:04:44.:04:53.

win! Mo Farah for Great Britain, it is gold! 45 minutes that made this

:04:53.:05:00.

the brightest of nights. GARY LINEKAR: Quite something,

:05:00.:05:04.

wasn't it? The finest hour of British sport in Olympic history

:05:04.:05:08.

and how, you might ask, can we better that? Believe you me, we

:05:08.:05:13.

will try. For starters, the 100 metres fight -- the 100 metres

:05:13.:05:17.

final, the fastest men on the planet with less than ten seconds

:05:17.:05:27.
:05:27.:05:33.

In a Formula One race I drive almost two would miles. In a tennis

:05:39.:05:44.

have to time to correct a mistake, a second chance. But what if you

:05:44.:05:50.

have only got ten seconds? Ten seconds in four years. The smallest

:05:50.:05:59.

mistake is magnified. There is no second chance. Ten seconds and you

:05:59.:06:09.
:06:09.:06:09.

are either... Or the Olympic 100- metre champion. Or you are not.

:06:09.:06:19.
:06:19.:06:39.

Usain Bolt will defend his Olympic 100 metres title right here tonight.

:06:39.:06:44.

Who knows what drama will unfold in this magnificent sporting theatre.

:06:44.:06:54.

It promises to be another Usain Bolt says he wants to emerge

:06:54.:06:58.

from these Olympics as a living legend. We will see the fastest man

:06:58.:07:05.

on earth. It takes an extraordinary athlete to beat Bolt. His training

:07:05.:07:10.

partner Yohan Blake has done it twice this summer. Be whether no

man known as the Beast. -- be where the man known as the Beast. We have

:07:16.:07:19.

local girl, Christine Ohuruogu, who once again appears to be peaking

:07:19.:07:24.

when it matters. Can she upset the odds and successfully defend the

:07:24.:07:29.

400 metres title? Triple-jumper Yamile Aldama likens her life story

:07:29.:07:33.

to the plot of a Hollywood film. She is looking for an uplifting

:07:33.:07:38.

finale in the triple jump. And it is a short walk to the Olympic

:07:38.:07:41.

Stadium from the home of Perri Shakes-Drayton. She will be looking

:07:41.:07:48.

for a stroll in her 400m hurdles. So it is athletics all the way

:07:48.:07:53.

tonight, with the highlights being the women's 400 metres final at

:07:53.:08:03.
:08:03.:08:08.

9:50pm. On BBC Three there is Jake Humphrey is and he is at the

:08:08.:08:12.

cycling but it will be men's hockey shortly. Great Britain against

:08:12.:08:22.

Here we are in the Olympic Stadium. I am joined by Michael Johnson. It

:08:22.:08:25.

is a blue ribband event, the one so many people look forward to. What

:08:25.:08:31.

can we expect? It is blue ribband - - Blue Riband, you are a pier and I

:08:31.:08:35.

have notes, this doesn't normally happen. There are so many great

:08:35.:08:38.

story lines coming into this men's 100 metres. It is not about the

:08:38.:08:43.

times but I do expect some fast times. We might see the first time

:08:43.:08:47.

all meant go under ten seconds. It might take going under ten seconds

:08:47.:08:52.

just to get in the final, which is incredible. The way the heats are

:08:52.:08:56.

set up, there are three heats in the semi-final to get to the final.

:08:56.:09:01.

The top two get into the final in the next -- and the next two

:09:01.:09:04.

fastest times so the league -- so the lane draws and he draws are

:09:04.:09:09.

important. Usain Bolt is in the hardest and toughest heat, which is

:09:09.:09:13.

going to show as a lot from him and what he has got going in terms of

:09:13.:09:17.

the injury he sustained earlier this year and his fitness level.

:09:17.:09:22.

Adam Gemili, he is in the best state he could be in, the easiest

:09:22.:09:28.

vital -- the easiest final, with Tyson Gay. Asafa Powell and Justin

:09:28.:09:32.

Gatlin to, Ryan Bailey, all of these guys, Yohan Blake, Usain Bolt,

:09:32.:09:38.

all of these guys could figure in these medals so it is not just

:09:38.:09:43.

about the top. I can see seven guys who could all potentially medal.

:09:43.:09:48.

That doesn't usually happen, but is what makes it great. It is so

:09:48.:09:51.

competitive. All eyes will be on Usain Bolt and we will learn a lot

:09:51.:09:55.

from his semi-final. He seemed to be holding plenty back in his heat?

:09:56.:10:00.

He was holding back quite a bit yesterday, how much, we don't know.

:10:00.:10:04.

His demeanour was a little bit different than I have seen before.

:10:04.:10:11.

He was not as jubilant, he was not Dunne he was more focused. He is in

:10:12.:10:15.

a different position. He does not come in as an overwhelming

:10:15.:10:19.

favourite, so will he feel the pressure? Will he be affected by

:10:19.:10:22.

that pressure? Normally he is the kind of athlete who would not be

:10:22.:10:27.

affected by that but this is a different situation. He is a global

:10:27.:10:30.

superstar. Everyone expects great things from him. He will be

:10:30.:10:34.

interesting to see. He knows that Yohan Blake has been him twice this

:10:34.:10:40.

year. Thank you for now, Michael. We look forward to the 100 metres,

:10:40.:10:44.

about 9:50pm. A short while ago we saw one of our heroes collect his

:10:44.:10:54.
:10:54.:10:55.

gold medal. Olympic long jump Greg Rutherford, I don't think he

:10:55.:10:58.

can still quite believe that he is the Olympic champion. Once again,

:10:59.:11:05.

an amazing ovation rings out around this magnificent stadium. He lost

:11:05.:11:10.

this competition. The second round, 8.21, that would have been good

:11:10.:11:17.

enough for gold, and he extended it at 8.31 in the 4th round. I really

:11:17.:11:27.
:11:27.:11:35.

dominant performance. -- a really Please stand for the national

:11:35.:11:45.
:11:45.:11:54.

CROWD: # God save our gracious Queen!

:11:54.:11:58.

# Long live our noble Queen! # God save the Queen!

:11:58.:12:06.

# Send her victorious. # Happy and glorious.

:12:06.:12:16.
:12:16.:12:29.

# Long to reign over us. A little smile. He doesn't quite

:12:29.:12:34.

believe it, it has not sunk in yet. Well, Greg Rutherford, you have a

:12:34.:12:39.

lifetime for it to sink in. You are the Olympic champion.

:12:39.:12:43.

Another emotional medal ceremony. He had to wait a long time for that,

:12:43.:12:47.

didn't he? Let's go to John Inverdale to look forward to a

:12:47.:12:52.

wonderful night of track and field. I think we ran out of superlatives

:12:52.:12:57.

last night, didn't we? I was coming through the dictionary for other

:12:57.:13:03.

words, other than amazing, extraordinary, remarkable. Unless

:13:03.:13:09.

Ball or Blake runs 9.4 tonight, it will not be quite as spectacular

:13:09.:13:12.

tonight but it will still be fabulous. Having seen Greg

:13:12.:13:16.

Rutherford's medal ceremony, the great bonus of London traded of us

:13:16.:13:22.

if you win a gold medal, it is you get a commemorative stamp, forever

:13:22.:13:32.
:13:32.:13:36.

more. There is Greg Rutherford's. I There is the one for Jessica Ennis.

:13:36.:13:42.

I think they are available at a post office near you, at some point,

:13:42.:13:52.
:13:52.:13:53.

Colin and Denise are here. The men's 100 metres tonight, one, two,

:13:53.:14:03.
:14:03.:14:03.

three, will be Bolt, Blake, Game. Blake, Bolt, Gay. Fair enough. A

:14:03.:14:07.

final reflection on last night, was that the best night that you have

:14:07.:14:13.

ever enjoyed? Even allowing for your gold medal, was up the most

:14:13.:14:16.

remarkable evening you have ever experienced in athletics?

:14:16.:14:22.

Absolutely, yes. We are having the time of our lives. Last night was

:14:22.:14:27.

the time of our lives and we need to recognise that. It was so

:14:27.:14:32.

special, so unifying and magical. For me, it definitely was. The

:14:32.:14:36.

whole audience here brought the event alive. It made it extra

:14:36.:14:40.

special. The performances were great but the crowds put the icing

:14:40.:14:43.

on the cake. It poured with rain for the marathon this morning.

:14:43.:14:48.

Please, can we have another glorious summer evening for the

:14:48.:14:52.

track and field tonight, and we have got it. It is about 21 Celsius,

:14:52.:14:57.

perfect conditions to run. The action has begun, the women's 400

:14:57.:15:07.
:15:07.:15:13.

metres hurdles heat. Eilidh Child a very long hold. Eilidh Child...

:15:13.:15:23.
:15:23.:15:24.

Already, that was Stambolova who took a heavy fall. Stambolova, well,

:15:24.:15:28.

I'm trying to check, was that another one going down, the Kenyan.

:15:28.:15:38.
:15:38.:16:06.

Eilidh Child needs to concentrate, Eilidh Child, a quick Quint there.

:16:06.:16:12.

-- there was a quick wind. Eilidh Child, it helped her that stumble

:16:12.:16:17.

over would have been affected. She went down at the second hurdle, but

:16:17.:16:27.
:16:27.:16:36.

Eilidh Child is through, that is whilst its sun is shining a little

:16:36.:16:46.
:16:46.:16:59.

bit in the Olympic Stadium. But between Eilidh Child and the

:16:59.:17:09.
:17:09.:17:19.

She is with me now. You are through to the semis, but not the fastest

:17:19.:17:25.

of times. I do not know what happened in the back straight. My

:17:25.:17:30.

strides were all over the place and I started to panic a bit. I am

:17:30.:17:35.

relieved I have done enough to make the semi-finals. Were you able to

:17:35.:17:42.

keep your nerves in check? I was almost crying when Greg was on the

:17:42.:17:47.

podium and I used that the crowd to get me round. The crowd cheered me

:17:47.:17:57.
:17:57.:18:14.

have liked, but she has explained how that happened. The athletes are

:18:14.:18:24.
:18:24.:18:39.

already out on the track for the next heat. There is the fastest

:18:39.:18:46.

woman in the field this year. 31 years old. Her fastest time was

:18:46.:18:50.

winning the Russian championships. Spencer is the 9th fastest in

:18:50.:18:58.

history. She has only run 54.39 this year. She finished third in

:18:58.:19:06.

the London Diamond League. She is the Nigerian record holder, twice

:19:06.:19:16.
:19:16.:19:19.

the African champion. 54.75. 53.96 was the winner of the first heat.

:19:19.:19:23.

If she can repeat the sort of form she showed in the Russian

:19:23.:19:33.
:19:33.:19:36.

championships, she should stroll round here and win comfortably. We

:19:36.:19:44.

should not forget the Polish record holder. She starts in lane six. The

:19:44.:19:54.
:19:54.:20:07.

first four will progress through to gone tearing off, past more Hamed.

:20:07.:20:12.

She has got the Malaysian outside her and she has drawn level with

:20:12.:20:22.
:20:22.:20:43.

the Jamaican now. Natalia Antyukh is such a powerful runner. She wins

:20:43.:20:53.
:20:53.:20:59.

it and she goes through. 53.90. She is showing us why she won the

:20:59.:21:05.

Olympic bronze medal in 2004 on the flat. Her flat speed is absolutely

:21:05.:21:15.

excellent. She is a 52nd runner over the flat. We have been looking

:21:15.:21:19.

at Kaliese Spencer for many years to be the Olympic champion, but

:21:19.:21:25.

injury caused a bit of a problem. Natalia Antyukh has been dominant

:21:25.:21:30.

for many years, so this result is not a surprise, but what is

:21:30.:21:36.

surprising are the times. They are turning it on when it matters, at

:21:36.:21:43.

the Olympic Games. She is a solid hurdler. She is quite good with the

:21:43.:21:47.

rhythm and she keeps her timing well and she keeps focused on what

:21:47.:21:54.

she needs to do. Now she has matured into this event. She comes

:21:54.:21:59.

from the 400m flat, but she is showing a lot of skill as a hurdler,

:21:59.:22:05.

which is really good to see. I am a perfectionist over the barrier, so

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

I am happy to see somebody hurdling. It was a great night last night,

:22:15.:22:22.

what do we have in store tonight? There is Yohan Blake. His training

:22:22.:22:30.

partner is the man he wants to beat here. I have been asked by about 20

:22:30.:22:34.

different people if Usain Bolt will win. I have no idea. Keep watching

:22:34.:22:43.

and we will find out. We will, do not worry. Before the Games began

:22:43.:22:48.

it has been, have you got tickets for the opening ceremony? Have you

:22:48.:22:54.

got tickets for the men's 100m? The ticket holders here tonight are the

:22:54.:22:59.

luckiest people. Some of them got it in a ballot and they simply

:22:59.:23:09.
:23:09.:23:09.

could not believe it, the only Each venue as an observer, does

:23:09.:23:14.

tonight not give you an extra tingle? It is the most fantastic

:23:14.:23:20.

drama and we have no idea how it is going to conclude a. The 100m is

:23:20.:23:23.

the blue Riband event of the Olympics and athletics at the

:23:23.:23:27.

Olympic Games, but this one is different than any I have ever seen

:23:27.:23:32.

before because of the great story lies coming into it. Usain Bolt,

:23:32.:23:37.

the greatest there has ever been, but not at his best. Yohan Blake

:23:37.:23:43.

has beaten him twice this year. The Americans are coming back with

:23:43.:23:47.

Justin Gatlin, Tyson Gay and Ryan Bailie. It is an unbelievable

:23:48.:23:53.

evening. We have to mention the 18 year-old Adam Gemili as well in the

:23:53.:23:58.

semi-final. It is an incredible evening. We will see in the semi-

:23:58.:24:03.

finals a lot more than what we saw yesterday. Getting down to business

:24:03.:24:07.

for the final. We will see so much and be able to tell a lot about

:24:07.:24:15.

what is going to happen. Half an hour to go. Do you almost hope

:24:15.:24:18.

Usain Bolt wins regardless? It propels sport to the widest

:24:19.:24:25.

possible audience. Yes, I do. Part of me wants him to win because he

:24:25.:24:29.

has done so much for athletics globally since his complete

:24:29.:24:35.

dominance in 2008. Everybody wants to see that continue. How well the

:24:35.:24:41.

story unfold? Should he win here tonight, it will be very exciting.

:24:41.:24:46.

My feet I tingling and it is in a couple of hours. There is a lot

:24:46.:24:53.

happening on the track, there is the triple jump and the hammer. We

:24:53.:24:58.

have designated channels for every single field final. If you are a

:24:58.:25:03.

fanatic of the hammer, you can watch it on the Web. On BBC Three

:25:03.:25:11.

we have got the hockey match between the British men and the

:25:11.:25:21.
:25:21.:25:40.

Australians. Let's go back down to Disappointment for the Liberian,

:25:40.:25:50.
:25:50.:26:23.

the season for Lashinda Demus. I watched her on television and

:26:23.:26:29.

thought, what has gone wrong with her? But she won the American trial,

:26:29.:26:35.

but she was beaten in Monaco recently. This young lady thought

:26:36.:26:41.

she would be a factor. But she has had a bad fall in training and has

:26:41.:26:47.

twisted her ankle a little bit. It will be interesting to see how she

:26:47.:26:57.
:26:57.:27:00.

goes. She is new to the event, not like Lashinda Demus. She was 5th in

:27:00.:27:10.
:27:10.:27:15.

the European Championships. Elena Churakova. There are only five

:27:15.:27:25.
:27:25.:27:27.

heats. Perri Shakes-Drayton goes in the last of the five. We have 24

:27:27.:27:37.
:27:37.:27:54.

athletes to contest three semi- We Lashinda Demus do the same? Away

:27:54.:28:00.

cleanly this time and Lashinda Demus has started quickly. She

:28:00.:28:06.

easily rises first and is leading as expected. Denisa Rosalova is

:28:06.:28:16.
:28:16.:28:16.

running a little bit tentatively, but she is going OK, in the middle.

:28:16.:28:20.

The Danish athletes in lane nine is setting the pace as she has decided

:28:20.:28:26.

she has got to get out hard. I am not sure she will be able to hold

:28:26.:28:36.
:28:36.:29:09.

it in the main. A good battle on she is going to be one of the

:29:09.:29:15.

fastest losers. A real battle going on for the minor places. That

:29:16.:29:23.

battle is very strong indeed. Lashinda Demus in the inside lane

:29:23.:29:28.

looked really competent from the beginning. I watched how she drove

:29:28.:29:34.

out from the blocks. She went into that 15 stride hurdle pattern that

:29:34.:29:40.

she has. Consistent, you expect this from the world champion. I am

:29:40.:29:49.

sure she would like to add the Olympic title to where she is.

:29:49.:29:54.

Focused on the barrier, approaches it well. A little glance over the

:29:54.:29:58.

side, but she should have known by- now that there was nobody around

:29:58.:30:06.

her. She could just focus on what she needed to do. Once she goes

:30:06.:30:11.

over the final barrier, she can relax. That is exactly what she did

:30:11.:30:21.
:30:21.:30:34.

and strode away comfortably to the Portuguese in third place. Denisa

:30:34.:30:43.

Rosalova is looking good for the fastest loser spots. This is the

:30:43.:30:52.

big stage, the big screen. 20,000 people. It is Henman hell on... I

:30:52.:30:59.

do not know, but whatever. It is fantastic. Somebody Michael alluded

:30:59.:31:07.

to earlier on, an 18 year-old who this time last year was playing at

:31:07.:31:10.

right-back on loan in the Blue Square South and now he finds

:31:10.:31:20.
:31:20.:31:23.

himself in the semi-finals of the What a moment for Adam Gemili.

:31:23.:31:26.

had to make a decision between staying with football choosing the

:31:26.:31:29.

track and I chose the track for this year and that is when I

:31:29.:31:32.

decided to stick with it properly and dedicate the rest of my year to

:31:32.:31:38.

it. I had a big discussion with my parents. Also with my coach. To

:31:38.:31:41.

find out where I could go and what the progression could be like. We

:31:41.:31:45.

knew I could progress well, but we never expected so much to happen so

:31:45.:31:52.

quickly. It feels like I am dreaming still. It is a whole new

:31:52.:31:56.

experience for me. I have never done anything like this in my life

:31:56.:32:03.

before. How many people can say they have run in the Olympics

:32:03.:32:06.

against Usain Bolt or Tyson Gay or Yohan Blake, ought anybody like

:32:06.:32:12.

that? People talk about with pressure with me. I am not feeling

:32:12.:32:18.

much pressure because I am 18 and have a few more years in this sport,

:32:18.:32:24.

so I am going out there to enjoy it, really. His first taste of the

:32:24.:32:30.

Olympic Games has been a very sweet one indeed.

:32:30.:32:34.

JOHN INVERDALE: There was a debate with a small the about whether Adam

:32:34.:32:38.

Gemili should compete in the Olympic Games, whether he was too

:32:38.:32:42.

young, whether it would have an impact on his career going for. I

:32:42.:32:47.

am glad -- a Betis team are glad he took the chance. You have to take

:32:47.:32:52.

the opportunities. You see young world juniors, European juniors,

:32:52.:32:56.

who never come through, so when he presented with opportunities like

:32:56.:32:59.

this and it does not get better than this then he would be foolish

:32:59.:33:03.

not to take it and he will learn so much, regardless of what happens in

:33:03.:33:08.

his semi-final. He is loving it. He always has a smile on his face. He

:33:08.:33:13.

could do well. He's -- he could sneak into the final. It is a

:33:13.:33:16.

debate within the sport. Mark Lewis-Francis could have run in the

:33:16.:33:19.

individual event in Sydney 12 years ago, but they said he was not ready

:33:19.:33:24.

for it and the chance never comes again? Who knows what is the right

:33:24.:33:27.

thing to do. Regardless of what happens with Adam here, the most

:33:28.:33:32.

important thing is that he continues to develop and continues

:33:32.:33:37.

to be on the track to develop and improve. Even if he makes the final

:33:37.:33:41.

here and finish -- finishes 7th or 8th, it would be a great result for

:33:41.:33:46.

him but that is not the end. You want to be getting medals. That is

:33:46.:33:50.

the most important thing, to take something from this and for people

:33:50.:33:56.

to help him develop be a great sprinter. It is 21 minutes now

:33:56.:34:01.

until the semi-finals of the men's 100 metres. Before that, here is

weeks ago, Davydova. 53.77 this year. Second in the London Diamond

leak. That was the last time we saw her. There is the line-up for heat

:34:23.:34:33.
:34:33.:34:44.

fastest woman in the field but she has also got the inside lane and

:34:44.:34:52.

that could be a big disadvantage. This woman is in lane eight. A new

:34:52.:34:59.

star, perhaps, Moline of the United States. She has made massive

:34:59.:35:03.

improvements over the last 12 months, down to 54.33. She came

:35:03.:35:08.

second in the US trials and was beaten by Demus, who won the last

:35:08.:35:13.

heat so impressively. I bet she has never run in front of 80,000 people

:35:13.:35:18.

before, either. This could be her first track race outside of the

:35:18.:35:28.
:35:28.:35:34.

couple of years ago it was 53.95. Davydova is in a very quick time

:35:34.:35:44.
:35:44.:35:57.

for her. He'd four of the women's four, the Turkish record holder,

:35:57.:36:03.

who stood up when the starter said, set, and she just went away. Now,

:36:03.:36:09.

what is the starter going to say about that? Having a little

:36:09.:36:14.

conference there. What do you think, Colin? This is going to be an

:36:14.:36:17.

interesting and a really interesting one. I am looking at

:36:17.:36:21.

what the starter is saying, what they are going to do. Whether they

:36:21.:36:25.

will do a yellow card, or a straight red. There you go come off

:36:25.:36:33.

she goes. Her Olympic Games is over. So the Turkish woman is out. That

:36:33.:36:38.

was fairly straightforward. I don't know whether we can see that again.

:36:38.:36:43.

When they went to set, she did not settle, she just went out of her

:36:43.:36:53.
:36:53.:36:57.

blocks. There is a big gap now between the Costa Rican. As they

:36:57.:37:07.
:37:07.:37:36.

went to set, she went, and she is quickly. The American is getting

:37:36.:37:46.
:37:46.:37:50.

have not talked much about her, but she finished 4th at the World

:37:50.:37:55.

Championships five years ago and she is still a very good athlete.

:37:55.:38:05.
:38:05.:38:09.

She is beginning to get into her but it is this youngster, Moline,

:38:09.:38:13.

the new kid on the block, who is streaking away with this. 22 years

:38:13.:38:19.

old. What a baptism. She is in her first Olympic Games, she is going

:38:19.:38:29.
:38:29.:38:31.

to get it. Davydova and Wilson are in a photograph. 54.32. That, if

:38:31.:38:37.

confirmed, will be a new lifetime best for Moline of the United

:38:37.:38:42.

States. Well done. Well deserved personal best. It is the first time

:38:42.:38:46.

I have seen her run in the flesh. I was interested to see what her

:38:46.:38:50.

technique was like. I have seen her results prior to the competition.

:38:50.:38:55.

She seems very competent. That was the only hurdle she struggled on,

:38:55.:38:59.

hurdle mind, she was caught between her stride pattern but she was

:38:59.:39:09.
:39:09.:39:14.

pushed into the final barrier. I am they make the adjustment, the

:39:14.:39:18.

stride length changes as they going to the 9th hurdle and she just did

:39:18.:39:22.

very well indeed and prepared herself for this final hurdle. She

:39:22.:39:27.

cleared it nicely and moved on, no looking backwards or forwards, kept

:39:27.:39:37.
:39:37.:39:40.

driving hard to the line and was JOHN INVERDALE: We have been having

:39:40.:39:44.

a debate about the hurdling technique. We have one more heat to

come, including a British runner, one of the faces of the Games, we

Perri Shakes-Drayton looking to rubber-stamp purged credentials

:39:59.:40:03.

going into the Olympic competition. This could be a great race for

:40:03.:40:07.

Great Britain, Perri Shakes-Drayton. She comes into the home straight

:40:07.:40:12.

well ahead of everybody. This is a brilliant run for the youngster.

:40:12.:40:17.

Perri Shakes-Drayton has taken this field apart! She is in form at

:40:17.:40:21.

exactly the right time in her life. I think you were seen as a great

:40:21.:40:26.

talent, if you make the title -- the final, potentially challenge

:40:26.:40:30.

for a fine -- for a medal. People were saying you could win a medal?

:40:30.:40:36.

I would be over the moon. It has taken a long while for me to run

:40:36.:40:39.

that time. People probably expected that maybe last year or something

:40:39.:40:47.

but it did not happen and that day, I was on fire. It went to plan. It

:40:47.:40:53.

was nice, a nice feeling and hopefully I can repeat it again.

:40:53.:40:57.

Once you have been there and done it, maybe it takes that obstacle

:40:57.:41:01.

from you in a mental sense? Yes, now it is for me to believe in

:41:01.:41:05.

myself. I have done it once and I am sure I am capable of doing it

:41:05.:41:08.

again. I am trying not to think about it too much that it is an

:41:08.:41:14.

Olympic Games. I have done how many races? It is a 400-metre track. I'm

:41:14.:41:17.

used to running in it except of the crowd and they don't scare me

:41:17.:41:27.
:41:27.:41:29.

because they are there behind be. - Gunnell goes forehead ten gets it

:41:29.:41:33.

right, she goes for gold. You have somebody like Sally Gunnell saying

:41:33.:41:38.

she sings you can win it. What do you say for that -- what do you say

:41:38.:41:43.

to that? It is nice people have belief in me every girl in the 400

:41:43.:41:46.

metres hurdles is going to have some kind of fire in make-up, there

:41:46.:41:50.

is only three medals that can be won and I am going to go out there

:41:50.:42:00.

and do my best and hopefully it Natasha Danvers, who got a bronze

:42:00.:42:06.

medal in the 400 -- in Beijing, is doing commentary tonight on our 3D

:42:06.:42:11.

IHD service, if you want to have it in super deluxe quality. There is

:42:11.:42:16.

Perri Shakes-Drayton. Can it really be 20 years, Sally Gunnell, Linford

:42:16.:42:19.

Christie, all that, goodness me! What about her prospects here,

:42:19.:42:25.

Denise? Like she said, she is one of several girls here that could

:42:25.:42:30.

take the title, could really perform out of their skin here. But

:42:30.:42:36.

I think she has a great gift. She has great flat speed, turning

:42:36.:42:39.

technique has tidied up somewhat and that running she didn't Crystal

:42:39.:42:43.

Palace was pretty amazing and we always felt she was capable of

:42:44.:42:49.

running quickly and that 53.77 that she did would put her right in the

:42:49.:42:53.

frame. Michael, a quick thing about personality and attitude to

:42:53.:42:58.

competing. Mo Farah before the race last night was grinning. He was so

:42:58.:43:02.

relaxed, it was almost like he was flat out. Perri Shakes-Drayton has

:43:02.:43:05.

that quality as well. In crucial moments it can make the difference,

:43:05.:43:09.

can't it? It depends on the athlete and each athlete will understand

:43:09.:43:13.

what is best for them and how to get in the right mindset for the

:43:14.:43:19.

race. Perri Shakes-Drayton is jubilant after the race, we love it

:43:20.:43:23.

when she is interviewed, but right now she is focused on serious and

:43:23.:43:27.

she understands the magnitude of what she is about to attempt to do.

:43:27.:43:32.

Steve Cram will the start -- well described it for it -- Steve Cram

:43:32.:43:42.
:43:42.:43:59.

world champion, she has been in the top two in the last three global

:43:59.:44:08.

title races, Walker. It is someone for Shakes-Drayton to run down here.

:44:08.:44:13.

A couple of good markers for her. The top Saw, that is all that is

:44:13.:44:21.

required. No mistakes. -- the top four. Perri Shakes-Drayton has

:44:21.:44:26.

started well. She has taken some ground out of one of the other

:44:26.:44:33.

athletes. Walker has gone quickly through the first 200 metres.

:44:33.:44:37.

Shakes-Drayton is sticking to her race strategy, her stride pattern,

:44:37.:44:42.

which will be strong in the home straight. She needs to be sensible

:44:42.:44:45.

here and she should qualify comfortably. It would be good to

:44:45.:44:50.

get past Walker, she has done that and she is looking strong. She is

:44:50.:44:53.

announcing herself as a real contender here, Perri Shakes-

:44:53.:45:01.

Drayton. Walker is struggling, the defending champion. If she can

:45:01.:45:10.

coasting, just about, Shakes- Drayton wins it. Well, that was

:45:10.:45:14.

really good from Perri Shakes- Drayton, a really tactical race and

:45:14.:45:19.

was -- a route -- she really attacked the race. She stuttered a

:45:19.:45:25.

little at the penultimate one. 54.62, she made it look comfortable.

:45:25.:45:30.

Colin? I was happy to see her aggressive from the blocks, get

:45:30.:45:34.

into her stride pattern very quickly indeed. She did 15 Gaz,

:45:34.:45:41.

when she was nice and fresh. She started to change down and ordered

:45:41.:45:45.

her stride into the race. She does that very well indeed from the top

:45:45.:45:51.

corner. That set it up very nicely for an easy run-in to the line at

:45:51.:45:58.

54.62. From the blocks, very strong, very aggressive. At this moment she

:45:58.:46:02.

will not see any of the barriers because she will be running hard.

:46:02.:46:06.

She will not focus it and will a bit later on. She will switch on to

:46:06.:46:11.

where she needs to be. Right now, she thinks, right, I am working

:46:11.:46:16.

where I am, I need to get my 15 stride pattern in round this corner

:46:16.:46:20.

while I am fresh, get into a rhythm. She has taken the barriers with the

:46:20.:46:25.

same leg each time, which means she is on a Orde strike -- stride

:46:25.:46:31.

length, 15 strides. As she goes round the corner, she decides it is

:46:31.:46:37.

time to change down, she is doing a 16 strides. She takes that one with

:46:37.:46:44.

her right leg, this one is the left leg. She dropped down to a 17 there.

:46:44.:46:52.

Here we go. That is another. -- that is another 17. Good focus, an

:46:52.:47:02.
:47:02.:47:12.

athlete in control of what she hurtling. She will be frustrated

:47:12.:47:22.
:47:22.:47:35.

she did 17s. But she will be happy Safely through and impressively

:47:35.:47:43.

through, what was your approach? Obviously I thought I had to treat

:47:43.:47:49.

it like a final and I could not hold it back. I tried to stay

:47:49.:47:54.

relaxed. The main thing was to qualify for the next round. Were

:47:54.:48:01.

you looking to put a marker down? Not really, but I wanted to win. It

:48:01.:48:07.

is a good start, you know. I am through to the semis tomorrow.

:48:07.:48:12.

about the experience in front of his crowd? I love it. I'm not fazed

:48:12.:48:19.

by this. I have been to the stadium before. I expected it to be louder

:48:19.:48:24.

than what it actually was. But the crowd were lovely and I appreciated

:48:24.:48:30.

it. Good luck for the semis and the final, hopefully. Hello to

:48:30.:48:35.

everybody. A terrific start for Perri Shakes-Drayton and I have

:48:35.:48:40.

been joined by our Olympic champion Greg Rutherford. Congratulations.

:48:41.:48:47.

You had to wait a long time to get hold of that medal. I was with the

:48:47.:48:52.

press today and I was with Jessica today and I thought something was

:48:53.:48:57.

missing and everybody was saying where is your medal? Finally I have

:48:57.:49:02.

got it and it is brilliant. It is nice to have something to look

:49:02.:49:07.

forward to. It is great to get back into the stadium and in front of

:49:07.:49:12.

the fans again. This is a home Olympics with all these people

:49:12.:49:18.

going absolutely mad for your. I have enjoyed every minute. That was

:49:18.:49:24.

your magic moment, 8.31. Did you think that would be enough?

:49:24.:49:29.

never know in the long jump. If somebody get something right and

:49:29.:49:36.

everything right, they have jumped a massive jump. I did not think I

:49:36.:49:41.

was safe and I had it in the bag. I knew it was good for a medal. But I

:49:41.:49:46.

did not expect to win it at that time. I was waiting for somebody to

:49:46.:49:52.

react to that, but fortunately they did not and I took the gold.

:49:52.:49:57.

Describe to us mere mortals what that feels like. It is the most

:49:57.:50:04.

amazing feeling of my life. From inside I was trying not to cry. It

:50:04.:50:11.

is such an emotional moment. It was blood, sweat and tears and it was

:50:11.:50:16.

always more tears. I was going to try and sing along, but every time

:50:16.:50:21.

I opened my mouth, it did not happen. I was fighting back the

:50:21.:50:27.

tears. It is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. You nearly quit four

:50:27.:50:33.

years ago after Beijing pulls up I'm glad you did not. Yes, I'm glad,

:50:33.:50:39.

it was a bad decision. So many people go through so many downs and

:50:39.:50:43.

the ups are very rare, so it is about cherishing the moments when

:50:43.:50:49.

you get them. At that time I did not have many ups and I was

:50:49.:50:54.

wondering why I was doing it. But I have a great family and nowadays I

:50:54.:50:59.

have a fantastic coach and a fantastic team and they have kept

:50:59.:51:04.

my body in great condition. Because of that I managed to win an Olympic

:51:04.:51:11.

gold medal. You certainly did. Sue had a lot of injuries, 17 hamstring

:51:11.:51:17.

pulls, and you switch to almost copying Carl Lewis. Because I had a

:51:17.:51:21.

terrible hamstring we had to look at what was causing the that and

:51:21.:51:27.

the way I was taking off and it was loading the hamstring far too much.

:51:27.:51:31.

We looked at somebody who ran very fast and Carl Lewis was a great

:51:31.:51:39.

example of that. We decided to incorporate his depth. My coach

:51:39.:51:44.

said this was what I needed to work on. We are now trying to copy the

:51:44.:51:49.

latter part of the jump as well, but that is a big technical change.

:51:50.:51:56.

Once I get that, I could get some bigger distances. Were you aware of

:51:56.:52:02.

everything going on with Mo Farah and Desert Ennis? We knew what was

:52:02.:52:06.

coming, she is incredible, an amazing athlete and again with Mo

:52:06.:52:11.

Farah he is a fantastic athlete. All of a sudden I thought I had won

:52:11.:52:14.

a gold medal as well and people were saying it was the greatest

:52:14.:52:19.

night in British history and to be a part of that was amazing. That

:52:19.:52:26.

has not struck home yet. I am so proud to be part of that. You made

:52:26.:52:31.

a massive impact and you will be responsible for parents being

:52:31.:52:35.

driven to distraction with their kids leaping over the sofas in the

:52:35.:52:44.

living rooms. I was wondering whether last night

:52:44.:52:48.

would lead to a national holiday in this country at some point. I saw

:52:48.:52:53.

Tony Blair being interviewed a few moments ago and David Cameron was

:52:53.:52:58.

here last night. I looked up to see if a national holiday had ever been

:52:58.:53:03.

created because of sporting success in the Olympic Games and they had a

:53:03.:53:09.

national holiday in Jamaica in 1952 after their four by four relay team

:53:09.:53:16.

beat the USA. There was a huge rivalry at that time. I wonder if

:53:16.:53:23.

Jamaica got a 1, 2, 3 and the 100m that they would have a holiday.

:53:23.:53:30.

There is also Asafa Powell and T is the forgotten man of the 100m.

:53:30.:53:34.

could be dangerous because he is a much more relaxed athlete now. He

:53:34.:53:40.

is no longer the centre of attention. Before that he was not

:53:40.:53:44.

able to deliver and could not handle the pressure. Since Bolt has

:53:44.:53:49.

become the focus, Asafa Powell has become a better competitor. He will

:53:49.:53:56.

be much more dangerous tonight. They need to keep their eye on him.

:53:56.:54:00.

This is where the Countdown star's. The final is in about two-and-a-

:54:00.:54:10.
:54:10.:54:23.

European champion. This stadium has just come to live. I wonder why.

:54:23.:54:33.
:54:33.:54:41.

That is the Gambian record holder. One of the great Jamaicans. Asafa

:54:41.:54:51.

Powell is a form her world record holder at 9.72 seconds. There were

:54:51.:54:54.

question marks about Jimmy Vicaut and his hamstring and whether it

:54:55.:54:59.

would heal enough or quickly enough for the Olympic Games. But he

:54:59.:55:06.

looked pretty good in the heats. A personal best by this man from the

:55:06.:55:16.
:55:16.:55:22.

Ivory Coast. A surprise package. The Olympic champion in 2004. The

:55:22.:55:28.

American champion in 2012, Justin Gatlin. Next to him Keston Bledman

:55:28.:55:33.

from Trinidad and Tobago. One of the quickest in the world before

:55:33.:55:38.

these Games. He did not look so good in qualification. Listen to

:55:39.:55:48.
:55:49.:55:49.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 43 seconds

:55:49.:56:50.

that cheer. James Dasaolu on the will be the American, the storming

:56:50.:57:00.
:57:00.:57:04.

through oh, my word. He was looking at them to say, keep up. 9.82. You

:57:04.:57:10.

heard what they said. If we weren't expecting anything quick in the

:57:10.:57:14.

final of these Olympic Games, that has been thrown out of the window,

:57:14.:57:20.

that is just the semi-final. Powell was out quick. When Gatlin got

:57:20.:57:29.

moving, and no holding him back. He wasn't flat out all the way through.

:57:29.:57:34.

He has announced himself that he is here to do business. Asafa Powell I

:57:34.:57:39.

always expected to explode at the blocks. He really focused and kept

:57:39.:57:45.

working towards the line. Justin Gatlin kept looking around thinking,

:57:45.:57:51.

where are they? Impressive run by him. Strong at the blocks, very

:57:51.:57:59.

long stride. Putting a lot of power through his feet. Just glancing

:57:59.:58:07.

around. Let's go, are the blocks. Segers long strides, completely

:58:07.:58:16.

different to Asafa Powell. His stride length is long. Glances over,

:58:16.:58:20.

quite cheeky. He will not be able to do that in the final, that is

:58:20.:58:30.
:58:30.:58:33.

for sure. He was good and Powell was run out of the second place. A

:58:33.:58:42.

new national record for Martina. Further down, James Dasaolu, 10.18.

:58:42.:58:51.

7th place. You needed a rest after the last couple of days, at the

:58:51.:58:56.

emotions, but you have acquitted yourself ready well. My heats

:58:56.:59:00.

yesterday were really good but today expected to run a bit quicker.

:59:00.:59:05.

Got off to a good start but didn't stay with the rest of the guys.

:59:05.:59:10.

seemed relaxed at the start, he smiled when you were introduced.

:59:10.:59:14.

Obviously the crowd are great and I had to acknowledge them. Once I

:59:14.:59:18.

went into my blocks are refocused. What were you thinking

:59:18.:59:22.

realistically, it did you think you could make the final? I wanted to

:59:22.:59:24.

run a personal best and hopefully that would have got me into the

:59:24.:59:34.

final. Went slower than my heat so disappointed. The women's triple

:59:34.:59:44.
:59:44.:59:48.

jump final on the way, of Kettering about when -- Caterine Ibarguen.

:59:48.:59:58.
:59:58.:00:04.

Heavily strapped, not going to help her. She goes into the lead. We

:00:04.:00:12.

have got Aldama in this. We had the men's long jump yesterday, very

:00:12.:00:16.

open. We know what happened, Greg Rutherford has just been down to

:00:16.:00:26.
:00:26.:00:31.

the commentary box, talked about if there are any TV screens down

:00:31.:00:37.

there, he knows where the cameras are, doesn't he? He certainly does,

:00:37.:00:46.

I bet he does know just how fast Justin Gatlin Ryan. -- ran. There

:00:46.:00:56.

is Yamile a Aldama. What a journey it has been. The world indoor

:00:56.:01:00.

champion. If she gets it together she could be right in the next.

:01:00.:01:10.
:01:10.:01:12.

Just a little bit of hesitation. Possibly could be in the lead. It

:01:12.:01:18.

is hard out there for the athletes to get a rhythm because of the wind.

:01:18.:01:23.

She will jump further than that, she is very experienced. That was

:01:24.:01:28.

just a little gentle opener. Would have been nice to have gone long in

:01:28.:01:38.
:01:38.:01:56.

the first round. Is this evening when Usain Bolt comes to life.

:01:56.:02:00.

Justin Gatlin get within 200 this of his lifetime best. Surely this

:02:00.:02:10.
:02:10.:02:10.

will be his night. There is his mother and publicist, one of his

:02:11.:02:20.
:02:21.:02:22.

many managers. Jamaica in the crowd will be here in force, this is the

:02:22.:02:32.
:02:32.:03:07.

in the front. Dwain Chambers, run one of his fastest times ever in

:03:07.:03:16.

the previous round to reach this stage, 10.02, the British No. One.

:03:16.:03:22.

And Daniel Bailey, 4th and 5th in the last two World Championships,

:03:22.:03:32.
:03:32.:03:33.

10.10 this year. This guy could be a surprise. Ryan Bailey of the

:03:33.:03:43.
:03:43.:03:47.

United States, he ran 9.88 in his medals from Beijing. The 100 metres

:03:47.:03:55.

and the relay. Trinidad and Tobago's Richard Thompson. From the

:03:55.:04:00.

Zambia, a man who used to live in Great Britain, a former Yorkshire

:04:00.:04:10.
:04:10.:04:25.

and English champion, Gerald Finley. first two will make it through

:04:25.:04:35.
:04:35.:04:44.

automatically to the final. That is of his life to make it through here,

:04:44.:04:48.

there are some class act in this field, not just Usain Bolt but

:04:48.:04:52.

quite a few others as well. Usain Bolt, the world record holder, the

:04:52.:05:00.

fastest man who has ever lived, goes in lane four. Bolt has a

:05:00.:05:06.

decent start, so has Chambers. SEAL is going well. Here goes Usain Bolt,

:05:06.:05:13.

turning it on. Ryan Bailey, the American, claims the second

:05:13.:05:22.

qualifying spot. 9.874 Usain Bolt. Dare I say it, flattening a little

:05:22.:05:28.

bit, but he is in shape. A wry smile on the face of Dwain Chambers.

:05:28.:05:32.

It will be interesting to see how fast he has run, the fastest

:05:33.:05:41.

loser's spot at the moment is 9.94 and 10.04. Richard Thompson has run

:05:41.:05:44.

10.02, so Dwain Chambers will not go through to the final. But he did

:05:45.:05:52.

run well, no doubt about it, his personal best is 10.05. Look at the

:05:52.:05:57.

return to form of Usain Bolt. Anybody who thought he was not in

:05:57.:06:00.

shape, he has answered those questions straight away. Out of the

:06:00.:06:07.

blocks well enough, as sufficient, nothing to special. He literally

:06:07.:06:12.

strides the crossed the line for a 9.87 performance. Brilliant. A lot

:06:12.:06:17.

of time we talk about the acceleration, when people come out

:06:17.:06:25.

of the blocks, how do people do it, but he demonstrated how people are

:06:25.:06:35.
:06:35.:07:02.

supposed to do it. It was lovely to time for Ryan Bailey. He is in line

:07:02.:07:07.

for a possible all a very own position, Richard Thompson. Still a

:07:07.:07:13.

fast time for the British No. 1. He will not make it. Let's hear how he

:07:13.:07:21.

feels about that race. Tell everybody your first reaction.

:07:21.:07:26.

A fast time as was yesterday, nonetheless sum up the whole

:07:26.:07:31.

occasion. I wanted to do well and get to the final, I am happy to be

:07:31.:07:38.

here. I really am. I am gutted I didn't make the final, but you

:07:38.:07:44.

cannot have it all. Was it worth all the heartache? Worth every

:07:44.:07:49.

moment, to feel that atmosphere, money cannot buy that, I am glad I

:07:49.:07:52.

fought this hard to get to this position. I look forward to round

:07:52.:07:57.

two, whenever that is. Tummy about running alongside Usain Bolt and

:07:57.:08:05.

your verdict? He is flying. I thought I had him and killed 60m

:08:05.:08:15.
:08:15.:08:43.

then I ran out of petrol. He has in the semi-finals, I was impressed.

:08:43.:08:53.
:08:53.:09:08.

that will take the lead. Army net started at 40.10, quite a strong

:09:08.:09:18.
:09:18.:09:30.

women's triple jump competition. She won the Ukrainian Championships.

:09:30.:09:40.
:09:40.:09:52.

ready to go. Kemar Hyman of the Cayman Island not starting so there

:09:52.:10:02.
:10:02.:10:11.

will only be eight of them. Adam coach was watching the first heat

:10:11.:10:21.
:10:21.:10:26.

of the semi-final and as a good luck. He cannot wait to go. He was

:10:26.:10:30.

in one of the easier qualification heats. Tyson Gay has just seen his

:10:31.:10:40.
:10:41.:10:46.

team mate. Return to good form by Gatlin, has Lunn -- won the London

:10:46.:10:51.

race since then. The surprise package, the Japanese comic new

:10:52.:11:01.
:11:02.:11:05.

personal best to qualify. The world champion, Yohan Blake. Known as the

:11:05.:11:15.
:11:15.:11:32.

beast. Nice guy. What an atmosphere he is enjoying every second of this.

:11:32.:11:39.

Derrick Atkins of the Bahamas. Hasn't broken 10 seconds this year,

:11:39.:11:48.

has done in the past, though. And then Warner from Canada. This is

:11:48.:11:56.

the easiest of the semi-finals, Adam Gemili has got a really good

:11:56.:12:04.

chance of doing well here. And anything close to 10 seconds, 10.02,

:12:04.:12:14.
:12:14.:12:36.

or quicker, if he was third, would Gay do here? Photo-finish numbers

:12:36.:12:46.
:12:46.:13:03.

Gay. Adam Gemili trying to get involved, well done to the

:13:03.:13:10.

youngster. Finished very strongly. The three winners, very impressive.

:13:10.:13:16.

Tyson Gay may be holding back a little. This young man, third in an

:13:16.:13:21.

Olympic final at the age of 18, what an experience. I hope he is

:13:21.:13:25.

loving this experience. He is looking to see if he has made it,

:13:25.:13:30.

10.06, just outside. Still a tremendous performance by Adam

:13:30.:13:35.

Gemili, he did not embarrass himself at all in this type of

:13:35.:13:38.

company and he has announced himself he will be a contender in

:13:38.:13:43.

years to come, great performance by him. We must look further up on the

:13:43.:13:47.

field, a head-to-head race between Tyson Gay and Yohan Blake. I think

:13:47.:13:55.

Tyson Gay, he slightly mistimed his first couple of steps. But once

:13:55.:14:02.

these two got going I think they were just playing with each other.

:14:02.:14:06.

Out the blocks, Adam Gemili, very fast, very explosive. One of the

:14:06.:14:10.

best part of his race. I am so looking forward to seeing this

:14:10.:14:15.

young man run indoors. Get up quickly, it moves on through the

:14:15.:14:21.

field, and he seems to get caught with everybody else's movement as

:14:21.:14:25.

he seems to get quicker and quicker as he gets towards the line, really

:14:25.:14:30.

showing he has got good plans for the future. He has got a great

:14:30.:14:35.

future. So happy to see that. He is chatting now with Phil Jones.

:14:35.:14:39.

A real sense of frustration from Adam. What is the problem? I have

:14:39.:14:43.

been working really hard with my coach recently to get my start,

:14:43.:14:51.

help me out and it wasn't really there. 10.06, I am happy, I am all

:14:51.:14:55.

right with that. Just a little fraction that cost you a place in

:14:55.:15:01.

the final. It cost me a lot. Obviously I was behind, I had to

:15:01.:15:05.

try and maintain my form. I came third in the semi-final of the

:15:05.:15:11.

Olympics, that is great. 18 years of age, you only picked up the

:15:11.:15:16.

sport seriously in January. Exactly. And very pleased that I have come

:15:16.:15:21.

here and I have done what I needed to do. I can get better and better.

:15:21.:15:25.

You have got a great future, all the very best. Can I just wish my

:15:25.:15:33.

mum a happy birthday? Thank you very much. Happy birthday indeed

:15:33.:15:37.

and what a nice present, very good performance from Adam Gemili in

:15:37.:15:43.

third place, just outside his personal best. The two qualifiers

:15:43.:15:51.

in the final later on tonight, Yohan Blake and Tyson Gay.

:15:51.:15:55.

The big guns or stand their ground and the men's 100m final line-up

:15:55.:16:05.
:16:05.:16:06.

will be exactly what we hoped it would be, using Blake, -- Yohan

:16:06.:16:16.
:16:16.:16:22.

Blake, Usain Bolt, Tyson Gay. What He is ready, he ran at the Jamaican

:16:22.:16:30.

trials to get second place. 9.8 is not slow. People have a lot of fun

:16:30.:16:39.

talking about Blake. We like rivalries. But look at this, great

:16:39.:16:45.

Stark from Usain Bolt, he doesn't have to get a great start. Here is

:16:45.:16:53.

where he is at his best, when he separates. At 60m, the race is over.

:16:53.:17:00.

Reminiscent of the Beijing race. The race was over for him at that

:17:00.:17:04.

point. How much quicker could he have gone? At least two-tenths of a

:17:05.:17:13.

second, it could be more. We will talk more about that, 9:50pm, the

:17:13.:17:18.

final of the men's 100 metres. And last night we were getting too was

:17:18.:17:22.

the closing stages of a spectacular men's 10,000m and you know what

:17:22.:17:32.
:17:32.:17:37.

What a night it was last night. I don't know if Mo Farah had any

:17:37.:17:43.

sleep. It was a pleasure to be here, he was our third gold medal. I know

:17:43.:17:47.

for the man sitting next to me he took great pleasure in watching him

:17:47.:17:53.

when, not only because it was a great when, as we see Bekele stay

:17:53.:17:56.

put for the bronze medal. Finished ahead of his brother who could not

:17:57.:18:01.

defend his title. They hear the noise and what it means for British

:18:01.:18:06.

athletics. You have waited years for it to happen and then such a

:18:06.:18:16.
:18:16.:18:20.

brilliant race. Two men coached by A Keighley, the brother reformer

:18:20.:18:27.

champion, the training partner of Mo Farah, he ran it terrific race.

:18:27.:18:32.

It was competitive and close. But for us, in Great Britain, the

:18:32.:18:36.

distance running community has been inspired for the next generation,

:18:36.:18:41.

has been inspired by more -- by Mo Farah. He has been a delight, a joy

:18:41.:18:48.

to behold. He is now the great Mo Farah. And listen to the stadium in

:18:48.:18:55.

two seconds. Gold medallist and Olympic champion, representing

:18:55.:19:05.

Great Britain, Mo Farah. What a moment for Mo Farah. The stadium

:19:05.:19:14.

erupts come as it did last night. In adulation, in respect and in

:19:14.:19:23.

joyful celebration. 27.30, the winning time, that is irrelevant.

:19:23.:19:27.

The manner of his victory suggests more to come in the 5,000 metres as

:19:27.:19:31.

well. Talking to his nutritionist this morning, he has done a

:19:31.:19:37.

fantastic job with him, as has UK Athletics. Now, the moment we have

:19:37.:19:46.

CROWD: # God save our gracious Queen!

:19:46.:19:55.

# Long live our noble Queen! # God save the Queen!

:19:55.:20:05.
:20:05.:20:06.

# Send her victorious. # Happy and glorious.

:20:06.:20:16.
:20:16.:20:28.

# Long to reign over us. Well, it has been a long time

:20:29.:20:33.

coming, Mo Farah giving everyone what they wanted but giving himself

:20:33.:20:38.

what he deserved. Well done. We look forward to seeing you back in

:20:38.:20:43.

the 5,000 metres. The heats are on Wednesday. Well done to his

:20:43.:20:53.
:20:53.:20:58.

training partner for the USA, their It is very and hard to be impartial

:20:59.:21:02.

on occasions like that. I am delighted to say that our

:21:02.:21:06.

commentary team last night, they were right in The Thick Of It in

:21:06.:21:16.
:21:16.:21:43.

It was all for that! Denise is very proud of her response there. That

:21:43.:21:49.

was brilliant, Denise, absolutely brilliant. It was. If you are

:21:49.:21:53.

wondering, I was trying to hear what we are doing next. There is so

:21:53.:21:57.

much noise I have no idea. It is not an infrequent occurrence. The

:21:57.:22:01.

whole thing about these Games, everybody in Team GB is feeding of

:22:01.:22:05.

everybody else so after the unbelievable demolition of Roger

:22:05.:22:10.

Federer on Centre Court today, to win the gold medal, he had this to

:22:10.:22:16.

say about Mo Farah last night. of the events I watched, I watched

:22:16.:22:20.

the athletics last night, it was amazing. Did it inspire you? Yes,

:22:20.:22:26.

it was amazing, the way Mo Farah one. I do 400-metre repetitions in

:22:26.:22:32.

my training and when I am completely fresh I can run it in 57

:22:32.:22:39.

seconds. His last lap after 9,600 metres was 53 seconds. It is

:22:39.:22:43.

unbelievable fitness and it gave me a boost coming in today. The

:22:43.:22:48.

momentum the team has had the last couple of days. The triumphant Andy

:22:48.:22:53.

Murray today won gold and silver at tennis. Here with me, I don't know

:22:53.:22:55.

what you saw the gymnastics earlier today but it really was quite

:22:56.:23:01.

something. Two young men who joined me earlier a few days it that so --

:23:01.:23:04.

days ago after winning bronze in the team event, silver for Louis

:23:04.:23:08.

Smith today and Max haste -- and Max Whitlock, bronze. It was so

:23:09.:23:15.

close, Louis Smith, factions from a goal. It was too close for comfort.

:23:15.:23:20.

I performed better than I have done in my life and to come so close to

:23:20.:23:23.

gold and get bumped down to silver, it was hard to swallow but I am

:23:23.:23:27.

very happy. You seemed calm going on to the pommel horse and with

:23:27.:23:31.

such pressure on you, I was so impressed by that. Did you feel

:23:31.:23:35.

that wait inside as well? It was a friend I was trying to put on,

:23:35.:23:38.

trying to trick myself into thinking everything was fine. I

:23:38.:23:43.

went out like usual listening to my reggae music. I managed to perform

:23:43.:23:47.

the rest -- the best routine I have ever done in my life. You had to

:23:47.:23:51.

wait and the last competitor went, the Hungarian come on one of the

:23:51.:23:54.

top men in the game. It must have been incredibly nerve-wracking. Did

:23:54.:23:58.

you think you had edged it? Personally, I thought I had done

:23:58.:24:03.

enough to get the gold medal. Waiting for your sport to come up

:24:03.:24:07.

is a horrible feeling, a weird feeling come but I have to give

:24:07.:24:12.

credit to the guy who beat me. He has a fantastic competitor, a world

:24:12.:24:16.

champion. I will be back with a vengeance in four years.

:24:16.:24:20.

Whitlock, a bronze medal, you must be delighted. Was it your aim to

:24:20.:24:26.

get a medal? My aim was to do was good job as I could and my target

:24:26.:24:29.

was to get in an individual final, but to come home with two bronze

:24:29.:24:33.

medals, I could not ask for more than that. You have done

:24:33.:24:36.

brilliantly well. Louis Smith, I was so impressed with the way you

:24:36.:24:42.

handled that decision, the fact that you lost by a fraction. You

:24:42.:24:45.

did it in a very gentleman, sporting way. A real example to

:24:45.:24:50.

sportsmen everywhere. Thank you. The guy I got beaten by will be

:24:50.:24:54.

known as one of the world's best pommel horse workers and to come

:24:54.:24:58.

second was a pleasure. Thank you very much indeed and many

:24:58.:25:02.

congratulations. It is time for the semi-finals of the women's 1,500

:25:02.:25:12.
:25:12.:25:19.

one British athlete in each of them, Ross Murray. Let's hope the young

:25:19.:25:25.

man can make it through. It will be a tall order. The first Pride go

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

another person in Beijing, but was subsequently disqualified for a

:25:44.:25:48.

doping offence and to prop became - - and Kiprop became champion. He

:25:48.:25:55.

has dominated world 1,500 metre running since then. Gebremedihin

:25:55.:26:00.

will be a danger, anyone in this semi-final is a danger. Brendan, a

:26:00.:26:05.

quick word on Ross Murray. He has come on fantastically this year,

:26:05.:26:09.

but he has always been a great talent? He has been a talent from

:26:09.:26:19.
:26:19.:26:19.

being a young man. Makhloufi is tough and strong. Ross Murray

:26:19.:26:29.
:26:29.:26:30.

started the year at 3.43, now 3.34. You have to appreciate the crowd.

:26:30.:26:36.

He has his own act now, well done. This is his first major

:26:36.:26:40.

international, the Olympic Games semi-final. There are ten athletes

:26:40.:26:43.

who have run faster than Ross Murray but I promise you, they will

:26:43.:26:48.

not all beaten today. He will respond to this. He is a young man

:26:48.:26:55.

with a big appetite. So the Olympic 1,500 metre semi-final, right on

:26:55.:27:05.
:27:05.:27:06.

the inside in the Qatari strip is the world junior champion, Driouch.

:27:06.:27:11.

Kiprop is round the outside, the European champion Ingebrigtsen is

:27:11.:27:16.

from Norway. I have mentioned a few titles, it gives you an indication

:27:16.:27:20.

of the job at hand for Ross Murray. He has gone to the back, that is OK

:27:20.:27:24.

at this stage. He has good speed and is learning all the time,

:27:24.:27:28.

certainly at this level where to put himself a place himself and the

:27:28.:27:31.

Olympic champion is controlling it at the front. Ross Murray things,

:27:31.:27:37.

OK, I will get closer, he is good. He is right to do that but it is

:27:37.:27:40.

very slow. The Olympic champion is dictating the pace. It is

:27:40.:27:46.

excessively slow, 46 seconds for 300 metres. They are jogging. It

:27:46.:27:51.

looks as though they are jogging. This is difficult, the speed of the

:27:52.:27:56.

first heat and the qualifying fastest loser will be removed and

:27:56.:28:01.

the advantage comes in the second. There is Gregson from Australia

:28:01.:28:04.

moving up on the outside. 63 seconds on the first lap, it is

:28:04.:28:11.

tough to have a fast time. Ross Murray needs to finish in the first

:28:11.:28:15.

five and keep out of trouble because they are tightly packed

:28:15.:28:19.

together and he needs to respond to the crowd. They will cheer him all

:28:19.:28:23.

the way. It is for him they are cheering. They will know that

:28:23.:28:26.

Kiprop is champion but they know that the young Briton is here at

:28:26.:28:32.

will do his best. Manzano is quick and always manages to find a way

:28:32.:28:38.

through, the American champion. He is good in slow races. Gregson and

:28:38.:28:42.

Murray are good friends. Makhloufi, who was very impressive in

:28:42.:28:46.

qualification, just looking for room on the inside as they start to

:28:46.:28:50.

push and shove and they want to get going. Ross Murray has got into a

:28:50.:28:58.

good position, got out of trouble very nicely. They are moving into

:28:58.:29:05.

lane two. Driouch is stuck on the inside. Kiprop is having a look,

:29:05.:29:09.

another slow lap. Now the race is on. Ross Murray is in a good

:29:09.:29:16.

position. It is a test of 800 metres speed rather than endurance.

:29:16.:29:20.

Ross Murray -- Ross Murray ers on the side of endurance. The most

:29:20.:29:25.

important thing is to take close order and don't give them a start

:29:25.:29:32.

at the bell. They have to work on to the outside. This is boiling and

:29:32.:29:36.

bubbling, the last lap being dictated by Kiprop, the Olympic

:29:36.:29:41.

champion. He is vulnerable in a slow races and there is Ross Murray

:29:41.:29:44.

with a wall of athletes in front of him. He has to try to get out of

:29:44.:29:49.

that. He had got a good position but it is messy again. He is not

:29:49.:29:53.

too far off the lead and he has to have a clear run, not panic. They

:29:53.:29:57.

are starting to kick at the front. Wheating at the back is taking the

:29:58.:30:01.

long route round. Murray is starting to go down the back

:30:01.:30:07.

straight. Kiprop, Driouch and Gebremedihin at the front. Their

:30:08.:30:13.

event. They are running away from Ross Murray. There is bumping. Ross

:30:13.:30:17.

Murray is being tested now, unfortunately. He will keep

:30:17.:30:22.

fighting. The top five will go through and two fastest losers

:30:22.:30:27.

spots and these are the sprinters. I have never seen this man run like

:30:27.:30:32.

this before, never, that is unusual to see, the Algerian being this

:30:32.:30:37.

good. Look at Kiprop struggling. Manzano does well. Right on the

:30:37.:30:45.

inside, Ingebrigtsen, they are the five. Ross Murray coming in with

:30:45.:30:49.

Weeting, round about night -- coming in with Wheating. He will

:30:49.:30:52.

learn from that, getting to the semi-final was as good as we would

:30:53.:30:59.

expect. I am not sure what I am watching with Radcliffe and there,

:30:59.:31:04.

surprising in the heats and equally eye-catching in a semi-final --

:31:04.:31:09.

Radcliffe. -- Makhloufi. The Olympic champion was left wanting.

:31:09.:31:13.

Ross Murray, baptism of fire and the Olympic semi-final but he has

:31:13.:31:16.

come a long way, giving them too much start in the back straight,

:31:16.:31:21.

getting chopped four speed. We always thought it was going to be

:31:21.:31:27.

difficult with that extension. Look at that loose, extending in the

:31:27.:31:33.

finishing straight, running like a sprinter. It was a sprint race.

:31:33.:31:39.

Sometimes Kiprop is vulnerable in a sprint finish but here comes the

:31:39.:31:42.

others, nipping through on the inside is Ingebrigtsen, the

:31:42.:31:46.

European champion. They will not be fast qualifiers for this round but

:31:46.:31:50.

he does not seem to be troubled at all, Mac loose, he looks totally

:31:50.:31:57.

comfortable there. Kiprop, the reigning champion, the man who was

:31:57.:32:02.

thought would win this race, now there is a question over Kiprop's

:32:02.:32:12.
:32:12.:32:17.

ability to compete in a slow run triple jump. Not much happening at

:32:17.:32:27.
:32:27.:32:27.

the moment. Still the Ukrainian, 14.56. Kimberly Williams in third

:32:27.:32:35.

place. That is a little bit more like it. One of the Troubles

:32:36.:32:41.

athletes have, they want to relax those first few strides, you have

:32:41.:32:46.

to work hard, it compromises you take-off position and sometimes

:32:47.:32:56.

accuracy is compromised. Very powerful, it bar when, into the

:32:56.:33:06.
:33:06.:33:11.

lead. -- Caterine Ibarguen. Yamile Aldama is still struggling. The

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

world indoor champion now. 14.54, the third place at the moment. It

:33:23.:33:31.

is big. That is better. That is towards 50 metres. It is some

:33:31.:33:33.

statistic. Since September to theirs and intent there have been

:33:33.:33:40.

no legal chums higher than 50 metres. That looks like a massive

:33:40.:33:48.

jump. It may have been deceptive. It could well have been part of her

:33:48.:33:58.
:33:58.:33:59.

shoulder or arm making a mark. 14.98, the big lead. Halfway

:33:59.:34:09.
:34:09.:34:09.

through this final. Both Yamile Aldama is down in 10th place, it

:34:09.:34:19.
:34:19.:34:21.

used to improve to get into the top eight. -- she needs to improve. A

:34:21.:34:31.
:34:31.:34:36.

absolutely crucial. Need something above 14.20. It is better. It is

:34:36.:34:40.

going to be a nervous wait. You can see the strapping on her shoulders,

:34:40.:34:50.
:34:50.:34:55.

she injured herself in Rome. Well behind the board. Was 4th in Sydney,

:34:55.:35:05.
:35:05.:35:09.

in Athens 50. She will get three of Kiprop who isn't good in slowly-

:35:09.:35:18.

run races. Ross Murray, a learning process for him, conducted himself

:35:18.:35:25.

well in the heats. He is with Phil. Your first Olympics, that was a

:35:25.:35:34.

real baptism. Disappointed. I think I am better than that. I am not

:35:34.:35:43.

sure what went wrong. I suppose if you told me a year ago, or even

:35:43.:35:45.

eight months I would be disappointed with missing out on

:35:45.:35:48.

the final of the Olympics I would probably laugh in your face. Just

:35:48.:35:56.

one of these things, I have got to learn from it, most of these guys

:35:56.:36:00.

have been going hard for four years, I've had six or seven months

:36:00.:36:05.

training. What is the biggest thing you will take from this experience?

:36:05.:36:13.

The whole thing. The crowd, everything like that. I will look

:36:13.:36:17.

back on this and think it was a fantastic experience. But I will

:36:17.:36:25.

use it as motivation. I will try to do better. Get back into training.

:36:25.:36:35.
:36:35.:36:41.

semi-final, Andrew Baddeley on the inside aiming to make his second

:36:41.:36:45.

consecutive Olympic final. Up against very strong opposition,

:36:45.:36:50.

Silas Kiplagat, one of two Kenyans in the field, Nicholas, the Olympic

:36:50.:36:54.

silver-medallist from four years ago, just running towards the back

:36:54.:37:01.

of the pack. Wearing the famous silver fern of New Zealand. A tough

:37:01.:37:11.
:37:11.:37:13.

ask for Andrew Baddeley. Leaving at the moment, the runner from Bahrain.

:37:13.:37:17.

The advantage of the second heat is they know what they have got to do,

:37:17.:37:20.

seven of the qualifiers should easily come from this heat which

:37:20.:37:24.

makes it easier for Andrew Baddeley, at the back of the pack there, out

:37:24.:37:29.

of trouble, gives himself a chance. There he is, right at the back.

:37:29.:37:33.

When I think about the final of the men's 1,500 metres the chairman of

:37:33.:37:37.

the organising committee in his own event, certainly wants a British

:37:37.:37:41.

athlete in the final. Andrew Baddeley is the one, the pressure

:37:41.:37:47.

is on now. The leader is going quick, Andrew is watching Nick

:37:47.:37:54.

Willis. Already they away faster. Andrew Baddeley has got to work his

:37:54.:37:58.

way through the field, finish in the first seven at this sort of

:37:58.:38:08.
:38:08.:38:11.

pace. That is the right thing to do. Chepseba has got a lead. Very good

:38:11.:38:15.

Moroccan in third place. Nicholas sitting back in 9th or 10th place.

:38:15.:38:20.

Andrew Baddeley is sitting right at the back. Chepseba or, third

:38:20.:38:23.

fastest in the world, the Kenyans are dominating the world rankings

:38:23.:38:32.

with a top three. This is much quicker. Andrew Baddeley has to dig

:38:32.:38:36.

in. He is getting a lid on a plate for them, a test of his running

:38:36.:38:42.

ability. These tactics are dead easy, you have just got to follow

:38:42.:38:51.

the leader. Still a good pace. Andrew Baddeley needs to be in that

:38:51.:38:56.

group, he is working his way through. A bit of a stumble there.

:38:56.:38:59.

He just slipped round the inside. He needs to move and put himself a

:38:59.:39:07.

bit closer. He is in 10th place, he needs to be 7th. The Frenchman who

:39:07.:39:13.

suffered worst out of that. He is towards the back of the field.

:39:13.:39:21.

Chepseba of Kenya, as they head towards the bell, the Kenyan coming

:39:21.:39:27.

through his Kiplagat, they are hoping to dominate. The German a

:39:27.:39:30.

quick finisher as well. Getting a bit nervous for Andrew Baddeley,

:39:30.:39:34.

hope he has got something down the back straight in the finishing

:39:34.:39:39.

straight because they are starting to gather momentum. There is Nick

:39:39.:39:42.

Willis in the famous black vest of New Zealand. Andrew Baddeley is

:39:42.:39:52.

BDDP, going hard, trying to get there. He has got to beat the three

:39:52.:39:54.

athletes under two Kenyans are dictating the pace, dictating the

:39:54.:40:04.
:40:04.:40:04.

race. The Moroccan looking superb. Kiplagat and Chepseba, second and

:40:04.:40:12.

third. Nicholas thinks he can win the Olympic final. But rather like

:40:12.:40:21.

the first heat we have and how right leader, he is sprinting away.

:40:21.:40:29.

Chepseba qualifies as well. Andrew Baddeley looking rather forlorn

:40:29.:40:39.
:40:39.:40:41.

there, he tried, we think he was in about 8th place. A disappointing

:40:41.:40:46.

run by Andrew Baddeley, the pace was laid down, he had to finish in

:40:46.:40:52.

the first seven. He was giving them far too much starch. The two

:40:52.:40:56.

Kenyans running smoothly. Doesn't make Willis in fourth place,

:40:56.:41:06.
:41:06.:41:06.

looking over his shoulder. Chepseba has got no problems at all.

:41:06.:41:10.

Nicholas looks impressive, he is getting better, timing is right.

:41:10.:41:16.

Here comes a charge from Andrew Baddeley on the edge of the picture.

:41:16.:41:20.

8th place, he is out of it, we don't have a runner in the final of

:41:20.:41:26.

the Olympic 1,500 metres, that is disappointing. Seb Coe is very

:41:26.:41:30.

disappointed. Andrew Baddeley will be very disappointed. A

:41:30.:41:35.

disappointing run, he had every chance, just had to run 3.36, 3.37,

:41:36.:41:43.

just wasn't able to do it today. Disappointing. The cut has been

:41:43.:41:46.

made in the women's triple jump final. You mean a Aldama has made

:41:47.:41:55.

it in 6th place. -- Yamile Aldama. The Colombian in the silver-medal

:41:55.:42:01.

position. The Ukrainian in third. Both of those are within the

:42:01.:42:08.

compass, a 39-year-old Aldama, she is 40 years old in nine days, a

:42:08.:42:18.
:42:18.:42:19.

remarkable longevity. A hop and step was good, she just lost it.

:42:19.:42:23.

She has got this beautiful, fluid technique. Good to see that smile

:42:23.:42:28.

back. She knows it is in her legs, that is a great feeling. The first

:42:28.:42:32.

time she has hit the ball. Just lost momentum there, couldn't keep

:42:32.:42:37.

it going. If she had have done she would have been way over at the

:42:37.:42:44.

required distance. Lovely lady who has served triple jumping so well

:42:44.:42:54.

over the years. 14.32 in the 4th round. Just have a look at the

:42:54.:43:01.

results of that last race. Kiplagat qualifying, Nick Willis, silver-

:43:01.:43:11.

medallist four years ago. Andrew Baddeley there, 3.36, much faster

:43:11.:43:15.

than the winner of the first semi- final, but when you are drawn in

:43:15.:43:19.

the second you know what you have got to beat and he didn't make it

:43:19.:43:29.

Earlier today Britain struck gold yet again, Britannia ruled the

:43:29.:43:32.

waves as Ben Ainslie won a gold medal for the 4th successive

:43:32.:43:37.

Olympic Games in the Finn class and I am delighted to say he joins me

:43:37.:43:42.

live down in Weymouth. Many congratulations. You have done it

:43:42.:43:50.

again. This time they didn't all go your own way. -- it didn't. It was

:43:50.:43:56.

a tough event, a lot of competition, particularly from Jonas. A tough

:43:56.:44:03.

fight all the way through. I managed to drag the points back and

:44:03.:44:07.

got it right but it was a difficult race, the wind was very shifty, a

:44:07.:44:12.

tricky course. But we had a lot of fancy it. That made the huge

:44:12.:44:16.

difference. It didn't seem right there was a

:44:16.:44:22.

lot of wind, you were drifting slowly. There was somebody else

:44:22.:44:28.

ahead, you are quite well back but always just one place ahead of

:44:28.:44:32.

Christenson he was the big threat to throw out. Did you feel in

:44:32.:44:38.

control? I would like to say I controlled the race the whole way

:44:38.:44:43.

through, but no, it was difficult. Jonas and I had a bit of a jump on

:44:43.:44:47.

the rest of the Fleet Sir we were keeping an eye on each other,

:44:47.:44:55.

basically who beat he would win a gold. At times, with the wind

:44:55.:44:59.

changing, it was difficult to get that right all the time. Thankfully

:44:59.:45:02.

it came together and I held that lead over the Danish sailor to take

:45:02.:45:07.

the gold. Four successive gold medals, the

:45:07.:45:10.

British sailor in Olympic history. Try and describe how that makes you

:45:10.:45:18.

feel. I am really proud. It is more for

:45:18.:45:21.

everybody who has supported me over the years, as a youngster growing

:45:21.:45:25.

up in Cornwall, learning to sail there, and everybody over the years

:45:25.:45:29.

who has helped me and supported me, it is really for them, once again a

:45:29.:45:32.

huge thanks for all the support and the support from everybody across

:45:32.:45:41.

the nation for Team GB. Will you go on to Rio, 2016 and try

:45:41.:45:44.

and equal Sir Steve Redgrave, five gold medals?

:45:44.:45:48.

Will you still be doing much of the day by then? I don't know, it is a

:45:48.:45:54.

long way off. The Olympics is a great event, so glad I have been a

:45:54.:45:59.

part of it, so we will see. Thank you very much for speaking to

:45:59.:46:05.

us. Well done. Brilliant effort. Appreciated by everybody in the

:46:05.:46:10.

country, thank you. I'm sure many of you will be

:46:10.:46:15.

watching hour coverage in high- definition but if you have all the

:46:15.:46:22.

relevant equipment you can enjoy the rest of the action in 3 D.

:46:22.:46:26.

Simply switch to the BBC HD Channel, but on your glasses and if you have

:46:26.:46:36.
:46:36.:46:38.

I think we have some hockey action to show you, a fantastic game,

:46:38.:46:45.

Australia against Great Britain. Australia are 3-0 up. There is

:46:45.:46:48.

James Tindall, a fantastic goalscorer, getting an equaliser

:46:48.:46:55.

with four minutes to go. It finished 3-3. It means Great

:46:55.:47:00.

Britain still had chances of making it through to the last four and

:47:00.:47:04.

marking your card, I think it is tomorrow night, Great Britain's

:47:04.:47:09.

women play Australia, --, they play us -- they play the Netherlands to

:47:09.:47:14.

see if they can qualify for the quarter-finals. Luke Campbell from

:47:14.:47:18.

Hull, one of our real serious contenders for a medal, will be

:47:18.:47:22.

fighting shortly. Wherever you look, there are medal contenders. One of

:47:22.:47:28.

the you look here, we are eyeing the 100 metres final at 9:50pm

:47:28.:47:33.

tonight. If you missed the semi- finals earlier on, Blake was

:47:33.:47:39.

fantastic, Bolt was Bolt. That is all you need to know. We are very

:47:39.:47:46.

excited. Moving on now to the semi- finals of the men's 400m. Is the

:47:46.:47:49.

400m the last of the sprint events, or is it the first of the endurance

:47:49.:47:53.

events? Added a fantastic interview with Martyn Rooney and that

:47:53.:47:57.

programme today, congratulations to doing -- to those people doing the

:47:57.:48:02.

daily programme, it is terrific. He says, you have to be stupid to run

:48:02.:48:07.

the 400 metres. It hurts so much. You wonder why you're doing it,

:48:07.:48:11.

then you go and do it again. Colin Jackson offers us his guide to what

:48:11.:48:21.
:48:21.:48:25.

The 400 metres is considered one of the most brutal events in track and

:48:25.:48:32.

field. Why? Because the body has to use two different energy sources.

:48:32.:48:38.

Anaerobic and aerobic. This event pushes both systems to the max. The

:48:38.:48:44.

first 200 metres is a sprint, so the big, fast muscle fibres are

:48:44.:48:49.

needed to propel the body to maximum speed. But anaerobic energy

:48:49.:48:54.

can only get the human body so far. A switched to the aerobics system

:48:54.:49:00.

has to happen in order to keep the body moving. The time that switch

:49:00.:49:05.

happens, every single muscle is full of painful lactic acid and

:49:05.:49:10.

that will bring most people down to their knees. To stand a chance of

:49:10.:49:15.

winning, the second half of the race has to be at least 95% as

:49:15.:49:20.

quick as the first. Michael Johnson was the master at this event. He

:49:20.:49:27.

would get through the first 200 metres at around 90% of his world

:49:27.:49:31.

record 200-metre time, but when he crossed the finish line, his second

:49:31.:49:37.

200 metres would often be less than a second slower than his first half.

:49:37.:49:45.

Remember, athletes have to go fast but the fastest doesn't always win.

:49:45.:49:55.
:49:55.:50:05.

Sprints are always about you come -- and you have just seen

:50:05.:50:12.

how it should be done. Henry will be on the inside. Conrad Williams

:50:12.:50:22.
:50:22.:50:46.

Newham Beatles. He has been part of our team for many years now. 46.

:50:46.:50:50.

World in qualification, he will have to be quicker than that here.

:50:50.:50:56.

The first two and fastest two will go through to the final. I don't

:50:56.:51:05.

think Conrad will mind me saying he has to go some here. Henry was 4th

:51:05.:51:08.

in two World Championships, indoors in Istanbul earlier on this year.

:51:08.:51:13.

It seems ages ago now, in March. And at the World Championships

:51:13.:51:19.

three years ago in Berlin. Tough in lane two for him. He came through

:51:19.:51:23.

as a fastest loser despite the fact he ran quicker than Conrad Williams.

:51:23.:51:28.

It was the look of the draw. There was some very fast heats in the

:51:28.:51:33.

first round. We will see one or two men in this race two, who ran fast.

:51:33.:51:39.

There are one or two in the other semi-finals. Levine will go in the

:51:39.:51:47.

second semi-final, Martyn Rooney in the third. Oscar Pistorius is in

:51:47.:51:56.

the second semi-final as well. Here he is, Conrad Williams. He is from

:51:56.:52:03.

Kent AC, just down the road. He has run 45.08, this year. If he could

:52:03.:52:08.

get close to that, he could get close to this man, the new European

:52:08.:52:13.

champion. He was under 45 in qualification, as was the Bahamas

:52:13.:52:20.

athlete. He has run 44.7 this year. Very impressed with this young man,

:52:20.:52:30.
:52:30.:52:48.

a big new PB. Just 19 years of age. personal best for him to get

:52:48.:52:57.

through, 45.0. This man spends a fair bit of time in the UK. He came

:52:57.:53:02.

to Britain it must be ten years ago now, based in the north-east at

:53:02.:53:12.
:53:12.:53:12.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 43 seconds

:53:12.:54:01.

times. So, crunch time for Conrad too much showing yet. Pindar is

:54:01.:54:06.

going well. Steven Solomon is trying to chase down Gordon, who

:54:06.:54:10.

started quickly in the first 200 metres. Conrad Williams is still

:54:10.:54:20.
:54:20.:54:20.

involved. Conrad Williams is running very well here. This is

:54:21.:54:28.

anybody's race, here. I said that Williams would have to run the race

:54:28.:54:35.

of his life here. Solomon is finishing quickly. Gordon wins it.

:54:35.:54:43.

It is close. Pindar gets it, ahead of Solomon. 44.58. That is another

:54:43.:54:48.

personal best. So many athletes coming in the rounds and now the

:54:48.:54:58.
:54:58.:55:03.

semi-final finding something new, round jump. She will attack this

:55:03.:55:09.

with confidence, I am sure. It is better, fractionally short of the

:55:09.:55:14.

bronze medal distance which is the Ukrainian. She will have one more

:55:14.:55:21.

jump. One more chance to try and win a medal in London. What a story

:55:21.:55:31.
:55:31.:55:36.

that would be, after all that she improvement but she is still in 6th

:55:36.:55:46.
:55:46.:55:53.

Tobago, huge personal best here. Very conservative through the first

:55:53.:55:56.

200 metres but he attacked this turn and put himself in a great

:55:56.:56:01.

position. Conrad Williams was in a great position but lacks speed

:56:01.:56:09.

endurance. Gordon, a huge personal best, down from 45.02-44.08, that

:56:09.:56:14.

will set him up very well for the final. He is looking at the clock.

:56:14.:56:19.

He knows that it is a fast time. Athletes know when they are running

:56:19.:56:23.

a race on personal best pace and he was a huge personal best pace. That

:56:23.:56:30.

is what you have to do at the Olympic Games. Conrad Williams, a

:56:30.:56:36.

very good attempt. Great execution through the first 200 metres. From

:56:36.:56:41.

200, to 300, he was a bit too quick perhaps and not enough to hold on

:56:41.:56:44.

to the great position he put himself in with 100 metres to go.

:56:44.:56:49.

We want to put yourself in a great position, but you can't rush it and

:56:49.:56:53.

I feel he rushed it the better at 200 metres. He took off up that

:56:53.:56:58.

point and you have to gradually get into that pace from 200 to 300. He

:56:58.:57:04.

was a bit too quick today. Conrad has with Phil now, let's find out

:57:04.:57:11.

We can't accuse you of not attacking it but you did not have

:57:11.:57:14.

it in the home straight? I wanted to attack it and give people

:57:14.:57:19.

something to cheer for. I knew it was tough to go through and I tried

:57:19.:57:25.

my best and I am glad that I went out in the race. I went out to try

:57:25.:57:31.

and win it. Through 200 metres to 300 metres, you may have gone a bit

:57:31.:57:39.

too fast? Most probably. Year, but I wanted to set the race for me

:57:39.:57:44.

under I lost about half a second there. It is something to work on.

:57:44.:57:48.

I had to go out in that race. I could not sit and wait back because

:57:48.:57:52.

yesterday I qualified as a fastest loser and I wanted to make sure I

:57:52.:57:59.

was up for it. You gave it a good go, thanks, Conrad. Cheers.

:57:59.:58:02.

Some impressive performances there. There was a personal best for

:58:02.:58:12.
:58:12.:58:17.

for the Australian. In three-and-a-half weeks we will

:58:17.:58:27.

see a lot of Oscar Pistorius but we A remarkable athlete. The debate

:58:27.:58:31.

still goes on about whether he should be allowed to compete in

:58:31.:58:35.

able-bodied races. Would you stand, Denise Christian are he is a great

:58:35.:58:39.

guy, a great ambassador. We have come to love him in Britain, we

:58:39.:58:43.

have seen him on posters and commercials. From a humanitarian

:58:43.:58:48.

point of you, why not? Where will it end? Should he start winning,

:58:48.:58:54.

getting into finals? That would start a fresh debate, whether it is

:58:54.:58:59.

fair, or whether he has an advantage of not? Is the debate

:58:59.:59:02.

that if he was challenging for medals we might view it

:59:02.:59:05.

differently? While it is still a noble effort to get into the final,

:59:05.:59:09.

we are with him the whole way. But if he was suddenly deny Martyn

:59:09.:59:13.

Rooney a medal, we would start to say, hang on a moment? Well, if he

:59:13.:59:17.

is good enough to be here and he can qualify for the team, there is

:59:17.:59:20.

no reason why not. He should get out there and perform and let's see

:59:20.:59:24.

what happens. It is a different lead now. This is the big test,

:59:24.:59:29.

this will be come a week keep talking about athletes making

:59:29.:59:32.

history but this would be history if Oscar Pistorius was to make it

:59:32.:59:42.
:59:42.:59:47.

through to the final of the men's of South Africa. He certainly will

:59:47.:59:51.

be getting used to this track. He will be running extensively in the

:59:51.:59:59.

Paralympic Games and a few weeks' time. This man is in good shape at

:59:59.:00:06.

the moment, 44. Mehdi five this season. There is a month not

:00:06.:00:10.

running as well as he was last year but still running quickly. -- there

:00:10.:00:20.
:00:20.:00:30.

is a man. The world champion from man who finished second in the US

:00:30.:00:36.

trials this year, McQuay, 44.49. There is the full line-up for semi-

:00:36.:00:46.
:00:46.:00:52.

yesterday. -- ran superbly yesterday. The first two go through.

:00:52.:00:56.

Oscar Pistorius, I think, will have to run the first 200 metres very

:00:56.:01:02.

hard indeed. He does come back strongly in the home straight. It

:01:02.:01:08.

is the first 200 metres where he lacks a bit of real speed. Levine

:01:08.:01:18.
:01:18.:01:32.

is going to have to get close to Oscar Pistorius already. The

:01:32.:01:39.

Belgian record belonged to his twin brother Kevin. Kirani James, the

:01:39.:01:44.

world champion, striding down the back straight. Tony McQuay is going

:01:44.:01:54.
:01:54.:01:55.

well on the outside lane. Here comes Jonathan Borlee. How much has

:01:55.:02:05.
:02:05.:02:12.

Kirani James got left? Kirani James, Chris Brown, they will qualify.

:02:12.:02:19.

Kirani James is really in shape. That was within 100 of a second of

:02:19.:02:28.

the winner of the first semi-final. It looked very, very easy. Chris

:02:28.:02:33.

Brown qualifies for the Olympic final. I do not know if any of the

:02:33.:02:38.

losers will be fast enough to go through. That was impressive from

:02:38.:02:44.

the world champion, Michael. Yes, it was. He needed to answer some

:02:44.:02:50.

questions for himself. He was able to finish strong. Jonathan Borlee

:02:50.:02:56.

ran an incredible race yesterday. He was not in such great form. His

:02:56.:03:03.

left arm was different from the right arm. Kirani James is very

:03:03.:03:10.

gangly with his form. That will have to improve for him. That bodes

:03:10.:03:17.

well for his chances in the final of the 400m. A very relaxed run

:03:17.:03:22.

from him. I am sure that yesterday was not as very good race for him

:03:22.:03:24.

in his mind and he wanted to change in his mind and he wanted to change

:03:24.:03:32.

that today. A tremendous performance again and a nice touch

:03:32.:03:38.

at the end swapping their names. Tell me about that. Oscar is

:03:38.:03:44.

someone special to us in our sport. This is a memorable moment for me

:03:44.:03:49.

to be out here with him. A special performance bodes well for the

:03:49.:03:56.

final. We will get ready. It is going to come hot. Everybody is

:03:56.:04:06.
:04:06.:04:08.

very motivated and very hungry. the best for that. Thank-you.

:04:08.:04:16.

is Oscar. He will be seen again in this stadium. He runs the 4 x 400

:04:16.:04:26.
:04:26.:04:36.

Kirani James is coming into form at just the right time. Jonathan

:04:36.:04:41.

Borlee may well be one of the fastest losers, but there is still

:04:41.:04:51.
:04:51.:04:53.

one semi-final to come. The hammer final has already started. This is

:04:53.:04:58.

the defending champion. British athlete, Alex Smith, is the first

:04:58.:05:08.

British athlete to contest the hammer final for almost 20 years.

:05:08.:05:18.
:05:18.:05:41.

This man is attempting to become this year. 79.14 for the Hungarian.

:05:41.:05:51.
:05:51.:06:21.

One more jump left for Yamile too high on her hop. Took all the

:06:21.:06:26.

speed out of her jump going horizontally board. I do not think

:06:26.:06:31.

I explained that very well. I think it is going to be agonisingly close

:06:31.:06:41.
:06:41.:06:42.

for her. I bet the team at the thought she could win this one. It

:06:42.:06:52.
:06:52.:06:53.

was a good jump, but not far enough for a medal. This is the last semi-

:06:53.:07:03.
:07:03.:07:19.

was 6th in the last Olympic Games. He has always seemed possessed of

:07:19.:07:23.

so much for hundred metre talent. Is this the time for him to realise

:07:23.:07:29.

it? Kevin Borlee and his brother Jonathan seemed to trade Belgian

:07:29.:07:39.
:07:39.:07:46.

records. He has just seen his brother finish third. They have got

:07:46.:07:56.
:07:56.:07:56.

to run under 45 seconds. Martyn Rooney has got to know that, surely.

:07:56.:08:03.

That is the Saudi Arabian on the outside. The one to watch here is

:08:03.:08:10.

Santos in lane five. The world junior champion. Just 18 years of

:08:10.:08:20.
:08:20.:08:54.

quickly, but Rooney has not gone off quickly. Mellor is storming

:08:54.:09:01.

down the back straight. Santos is going well. Rooney is now moving a

:09:01.:09:09.

bit better. Santos is starting to come through and Rooney is in

:09:09.:09:19.

contention, but he has to be strong in the home straight. Here comes

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

Rooney. Can he get under 45 seconds? Kevin Borlee wins it, then

:09:29.:09:39.

Sandoz, Ben Bryshon Nellum. 44.78 for the youngster. I think we are

:09:39.:09:45.

going to see a new era of 400m running. Not good enough in the end

:09:45.:09:52.

for my 10 Rooney. This season began with good promise for him. Not able

:09:52.:09:58.

to deliver here tonight. He is outside 45 seconds and that might

:09:58.:10:04.

disappoint him most, Michael. think so. Like Conrad Williams he

:10:04.:10:11.

ran a great first 200. Unfortunately it was not there. But

:10:11.:10:18.

look at Santos. Great execution from him. Only 18 years old. He is

:10:18.:10:23.

giving Kevin Borlee everything he can handle. Santos is extremely

:10:23.:10:32.

relaxed. He will give Kirani James a run for it. Only 18 years old.

:10:32.:10:38.

Great technique down the last 100m. Looking around. You do not want to

:10:38.:10:47.

try too hard at this point, just relax. Very nice from the young 18

:10:47.:10:57.
:10:57.:11:33.

position, but it will be a nervous wait for her.

:11:33.:11:38.

I have just asked our statisticians if there has ever been two twins

:11:38.:11:48.
:11:48.:11:59.

. Obvious disappointment, you are attacked it. Tell me about the race

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

plan. It was all right, but just not good enough. I can only

:12:09.:12:13.

apologise to the people who have put four years of effort into

:12:13.:12:18.

meatballs stock I have trained hard, done all the sacrifices, I have

:12:18.:12:28.

lost a life, living in an altitude ten. I want to apologise for my

:12:28.:12:32.

girlfriend -- to my girlfriend. Thank you to my family and

:12:32.:12:42.
:12:42.:12:44.

everybody. Thanks to them and I apologise. I let them down. I am

:12:44.:12:49.

sure they will not quite view it that way. What do you do now going

:12:49.:12:54.

forward having gone through all that to get to this point? Sort it

:12:54.:13:04.
:13:04.:13:04.

out. I have got a relay in the next couple of days. It was an

:13:04.:13:09.

opportunity to win a medal and I did not make it. It was the biggest

:13:09.:13:14.

opportunity of my life. And to have the crowd shouting Rooney before

:13:14.:13:19.

you go in I thought, it is great, and I wish I could have lived up to

:13:19.:13:29.
:13:29.:13:45.

background. He is in a good position.

:13:45.:13:53.

45 minutes from the big showdown. The world will be watching. I know

:13:53.:13:59.

17 million were watching Mo Farah last night. But everybody has been

:13:59.:14:06.

talking about the men's 100m final. It is at 9:50pm tonight. Before

:14:06.:14:12.

that we have got the women's 400m final with Christine Ohoruogu. The

:14:12.:14:22.
:14:22.:14:27.

men's steeplechase follows that. It culminates with the 100m final. I

:14:28.:14:32.

mentioned Christine Ohoruogu and the time is now for her. There have

:14:32.:14:38.

been more downs than ups for her since Beijing. For her the Olympics

:14:38.:14:48.
:14:48.:14:49.

have come home because she was born Christine Ohoruogu is Britain's

:14:49.:14:56.

only ever a woman to have won an Olympic gold at the 400m. She also

:14:56.:15:02.

picked up the world title in 2007. But since then her form has not

:15:02.:15:06.

been great and it is only the relay gold that she won in the world

:15:06.:15:13.

indoors that may cause concern to her rivals. She has only ever won

:15:13.:15:19.

two sub 52nd times in her career. Compare that to her major

:15:19.:15:24.

competitors tonight and you can see that she has got a job on her hands.

:15:24.:15:30.

But she can draw inspiration from where she ran those times. At the

:15:30.:15:33.

World Championships and the Olympic Games and on both occasions she won

:15:33.:15:41.

the gold medal. It is a bit -- about her building process. In

:15:41.:15:45.

Osaka she improved on her time in each heat and one year later she

:15:45.:15:50.

repeated that performance in Beijing. Each heat was faster than

:15:50.:15:55.

the last. Contrast that with her performance in single race events

:15:55.:15:59.

in 2011 and she failed to win any. But this year has been more

:15:59.:16:05.

promising. Her times have been consistent and she beat Amantle

:16:05.:16:09.

Montsho at Crystal Palace a few weeks ago. What about her

:16:09.:16:15.

performance in London? It is a downward curve again. Better in the

:16:15.:16:19.

semi than she was in the heat. Can she repeated Beijing heroics in

:16:19.:16:29.
:16:29.:16:40.

front of this patriotic home crowd University. She has got to raise

:16:40.:16:47.

well, she has got a level head. Right now she has got to be very

:16:47.:16:50.

comfortable and confident. She always progresses well through the

:16:50.:16:53.

rounds and she knows what the results have been an she is getting

:16:53.:16:59.

quicker. She just needs to do what she can do best. She has been

:16:59.:17:03.

belligerent when people have been asking her saying, where has it

:17:03.:17:07.

gone wrong? She has kept saying it will come right in the end. Tonight

:17:07.:17:12.

may be the vindication. Absolutely. She has climbed to erode personal

:17:12.:17:19.

Everest to be here, she has raced with a brain and her heart. If

:17:19.:17:23.

anybody deserves the rewards for what she has been through, it is

:17:23.:17:28.

her but she will have to run smart, she is in an outside lane, she has

:17:28.:17:36.

to be aware of the danger. Will this be a typical race where she

:17:36.:17:40.

just has to stay in contention for the first 250, they just come

:17:40.:17:45.

through the field? Absolutely, no two ways about it, she doesn't have

:17:45.:17:52.

the natural speed of some of the others. People like Richards-Ross,

:17:52.:17:59.

she has got a great personal best, superior to Christine's. She has

:17:59.:18:02.

got to stay contention, maintain the form. It is about maintaining

:18:02.:18:12.
:18:12.:18:13.

the speed which will win this race. If she is in contention and she

:18:13.:18:18.

comes of that final bend, the crowd Wiltshire her home and she will

:18:18.:18:28.
:18:28.:18:31.

deliver something special. She has not spoken to anyone, she has just

:18:31.:18:37.

been keeping the focus. Christine Ohuruogu retain her

:18:37.:18:47.
:18:47.:18:56.

of all, Williams-Mills in lane two, of Rosemarie Whyte in three,

:18:56.:19:06.
:19:06.:19:11.

Christine Ohuruogu, Great Britain, individually. Williams-Mills, she

:19:11.:19:16.

was leading with just yards to go at the World Championships in 2007

:19:16.:19:20.

when Christine Ohuruogu came past in the last few strides to take

:19:20.:19:28.

Pensilva. Her team-mate, Rosemarie Whyte, outside her in lane three.

:19:28.:19:31.

Williams-Mills has been quicker this year but that is the way the

:19:31.:19:36.

draw has gone. DeeDee Trotter, bit of a revelation, second in the

:19:36.:19:46.
:19:46.:19:50.

American trials, but even quicker very hard through the first 200

:19:50.:19:59.

metres. The world's leading 400m runner in terms of time in 2012.

:19:59.:20:04.

Krivoshapka of Russia. Richards- Ross, by most people's reckoning,

:20:04.:20:09.

is the number one in the world, in terms of victories, quick 3,200 as

:20:10.:20:17.

well, it ran a personal best, that could be significant. The world

:20:17.:20:22.

champion from austere, also the Commonwealth champion from 2010,

:20:22.:20:32.
:20:32.:20:33.

Montsho. But one have never won an Olympic medal. -- but y'know. --

:20:33.:20:41.

Botswana. Can Christine do what no British female Olympian has ever

:20:41.:20:51.

done and defend an Olympic title? Francena McCorory will be on the

:20:51.:20:56.

outside, quick, from Michael Johnson and I know you have been

:20:56.:21:01.

talking about Richards-Ross, and Krivoshapka, the draw, she's going

:21:01.:21:09.

to go out hard? Krivoshapka may not go out as hard as she has in the

:21:09.:21:14.

past but she may have learnt their lesson from the semi-final, if she

:21:14.:21:18.

doesn't go out hard and let Richards-Ross set the pace, that

:21:18.:21:28.
:21:28.:21:46.

could set up a great race down the Christine Ohuruogu do It Again?

:21:46.:21:50.

Richards-Ross almost stumbles a little bit out of the blocks but is

:21:50.:21:57.

quickly up. Montsho, a fast start from the American. Christine

:21:57.:22:00.

Ohuruogu is right in this from the beginning and that is what she

:22:00.:22:08.

needed to do. Krivoshapka, the Russian, goes past Richard Ross.

:22:08.:22:11.

Richards-Ross now start to get moving, so does not show. DeeDee

:22:11.:22:15.

Trotter trying to get into this. Krivoshapka and Christine Ohuruogu

:22:15.:22:21.

is going to chance it. Right on the outside, the American. DeeDee

:22:21.:22:25.

Trotter coming through. Richards- Ross coming through, Christine

:22:25.:22:30.

Ohuruogu is coming again, can she get there this time? Christine

:22:30.:22:36.

Ohuruogu is coming, was to make it, Sanya Richards-Ross takes the gold,

:22:36.:22:44.

Christine Ohuruogu, a sterling effort to get the silver medal. For

:22:44.:22:48.

a moment I thought it was going to happen all over again, just like

:22:48.:22:57.

four years ago. But Sanya Richards- Ross is the champion. She is a

:22:57.:23:06.

great 400m runner. The silver to Christine Ohuruogu, what can you

:23:06.:23:12.

say about Christine? Every time saves her best for the Olympics,

:23:13.:23:16.

for the World Championships, forget all the other races, this is the

:23:16.:23:21.

one that matters to her that she gets the best out of herself again,

:23:21.:23:30.

only ever runs under 57 -- 52nd in a major final. Remarkable.

:23:30.:23:36.

prayed that one very good, very conservative, not the most pleasing

:23:36.:23:41.

times but a great race down the home stretch. Krivoshapka didn't

:23:41.:23:46.

play it as well. Christine Ohuruogu always in position if the others

:23:46.:23:52.

faltered. Krivoshapka faltered. With Christine, she could have won

:23:52.:23:57.

that, because Sanya Richards-Ross didn't run the best race, she ran

:23:57.:24:02.

almost too conservatively. Christine had Francena McCrory

:24:02.:24:08.

outsider for setting the pace but Krivoshapka, a little too fast, a

:24:08.:24:16.

great finish. Sanya Richards-Ross not looking as good as she did in

:24:16.:24:20.

the semi-finals, but Christie without strong finish, everybody

:24:20.:24:27.

does cleaning, it all coming down to the lead at the very end. DeeDee

:24:27.:24:33.

Trotter, sunnier Richards-Ross fighting. She doesn't know

:24:33.:24:37.

Christine is back there but she knows Christine has beaten her in

:24:37.:24:45.

the past in these championships, she would have been aware of that.

:24:45.:24:48.

Richards-Ross has come into many a championship as the favourite, but

:24:48.:24:53.

didn't take home the gold. I am sure this is a great moment for her,

:24:53.:25:00.

coming through finally. Christine Ohuruogu, knowing she has got just

:25:00.:25:07.

about all of the competition on the inside, fortunately she did have

:25:07.:25:16.

Francena McCrory on the outside. Long strides, she knows she has got

:25:16.:25:23.

to get finished, she will not know where everybody else is, I don't

:25:23.:25:27.

think she looked at the screens. This is where she comes into her

:25:27.:25:32.

own, and a little bit of trouble coming off the curve but she knows

:25:32.:25:37.

she has got the strength. If she had come out a couple of strides

:25:37.:25:41.

ahead of that she probably would have won. Sony Richards-Ross in her

:25:41.:25:49.

side, trying to capture, doesn't get her begets the silver. -- but

:25:49.:25:54.

she gets the silver. Great finish but all hats off to Richards-Ross

:25:54.:25:58.

finally coming home with the win, I am sure Christine will be happy

:25:59.:26:08.
:26:09.:26:11.

with that. Her championship record is incredible, to be honest. Sanya

:26:11.:26:17.

Richards-Ross, the gold medal for the USA. Just a couple of strides

:26:18.:26:21.

ahead of Christine Ohuruogu. A brilliant silver medal for her.

:26:21.:26:26.

DeeDee Trotter coming through for perhaps a surprise bronze medal for

:26:26.:26:36.
:26:36.:26:36.

We discussed last night whether she would be the surprise champion for

:26:36.:26:42.

Britain, she needed it. Do you think she almost might be thinking

:26:42.:26:46.

if only I had put the afterburners on five metres earlier I might have

:26:46.:26:50.

snatched it. I can imagine her thinking right is Mehmet thinking,

:26:50.:26:55.

goodness gracious Me. But all in all, it was a tremendous

:26:55.:27:00.

performance, no two ways about it. She would have looked at this race,

:27:00.:27:05.

seen her lane draw and would have thought any to concentrate on what

:27:05.:27:09.

I need to do. She knows time and time again she has been able to

:27:09.:27:12.

reel the field in. When Richards- Ross was so close you must have

:27:12.:27:17.

thought, I have really got a good chance. I cannot wait to hear what

:27:17.:27:24.

she says about this race. A ensure we will hear it for her in his

:27:24.:27:31.

second but she is doing a lap of honour. Denise, your thoughts?

:27:31.:27:34.

was close to being one of the performances of the championship,

:27:34.:27:38.

always going to be a tall order for somebody to retain their Olympic

:27:38.:27:45.

title. Her journey has been an immense one. To be within striking

:27:45.:27:50.

distance of that gold medal is just brilliant. It is a fantastic result

:27:50.:27:58.

for a girl that lives down the road. How inspiring is that? She is

:27:58.:28:02.

determined, she has believed in herself, and what she can do, that

:28:02.:28:07.

is good. We will hear from her when she gets round to our bit of the

:28:07.:28:11.

track but she is on the other side at the moment. That is what the

:28:11.:28:14.

Olympic Stadium in London looks like on this Sunday evening, the

:28:15.:28:19.

most eagerly anticipated Sunday evening of the championships, as

:28:19.:28:25.

the flame burns and he will be the fastest man on the earth in less

:28:25.:28:30.

than half-an-hour? The great thing about sprinting, you think it is

:28:30.:28:37.

about legs, shoulders, arms. Actually there when there is often

:28:37.:28:47.
:28:47.:29:02.

the man who is strongest in the He Shea, unadulterated power.

:29:02.:29:07.

get to the final and he is looking solid and sombre, be concerned.

:29:07.:29:12.

is a psychological warfare, you have got to know your opponent in

:29:12.:29:18.

their mind. Justin Gatlin, he is jumping up and down unsmiling,

:29:18.:29:28.
:29:28.:29:30.

doing posies, be concerned. If you thought that 9.58 seconds when you

:29:30.:29:33.

do hundred metres, you were wrong. The race begins before the starting

:29:33.:29:41.

gate. There are always those who smile, those who are anonymous in

:29:41.:29:51.
:29:51.:29:54.

that they are in their own so and completely. -- zone. I take the

:29:54.:29:58.

emotion out of it, I always think about pushing out of the blocks,

:29:58.:30:02.

the elements, the technical elements and that's what allows me

:30:02.:30:07.

to be successful. I thought, it doesn't feel right, can we have it

:30:07.:30:12.

tomorrow? I thought, get a hold of yourself, mate, you will not get

:30:12.:30:21.

another chance. I would look at that anger, yes, Ben that energy. -

:30:21.:30:26.

- burnt. That is right, pays for everybody else. I would you do have

:30:26.:30:36.
:30:36.:30:37.

your attention diverted. A great poker face. You don't know if he is

:30:37.:30:41.

nervous, you don't know anything, just smiles a lot of time, crazy

:30:41.:30:49.

stuff. One year ago the previously invincible Usain Bolt had the smile

:30:49.:30:59.
:30:59.:31:07.

It was the 100m final, I said set. An athlete broke hugely early.

:31:07.:31:13.

Ridiculously early. I knew it was plain five. By that time a focus on

:31:14.:31:20.

the fact it was using bolt he already had his vest off. -- Usain

:31:20.:31:30.
:31:30.:31:32.

Bolt. All hell broke loose. Cameras in his face, he did deserve that

:31:33.:31:37.

this is the first Olympic 100m final with the new rule, one false

:31:37.:31:47.
:31:47.:31:51.

Wait for the gun, it is not rocket science. You get down to your mark.

:31:51.:32:01.
:32:01.:32:05.

You go into set. You wait for the gun to shoot and then you go.

:32:05.:32:12.

the beat of the gun. If an athlete commences their starting motion

:32:12.:32:17.

before a 0.1 of a second after the gun it is deemed a false start.

:32:17.:32:22.

Humans cannot react in less than that time.

:32:22.:32:31.

When the starter says set, Ken Usain Bolt keep it all together?

:32:32.:32:37.

When he starred on the beat of bang? The public perception is he

:32:37.:32:42.

is weakened and his aura of invincibility is gone. Therefore

:32:42.:32:51.

that opens the door to everyone. opens the door, but the door has

:32:51.:33:01.
:33:01.:33:01.

almost been shack with Yohan Blake. We have got a chance, no, we have

:33:01.:33:10.

not. The lights are on and everybody is at home waiting for

:33:10.:33:16.

the final of the men's 100m. It will take place in this magnificent

:33:16.:33:23.

arena in less than half an hour's time. Some people take it

:33:24.:33:29.

differently, some people look very serious and focused and some people

:33:29.:33:34.

will grain and lava to deflect the pressure. Who do you think is the

:33:34.:33:40.

strongest in terms of willpower? would say Yohan Blake because he

:33:40.:33:47.

has less to lose. He is positioned after the semi-finals as a silver

:33:47.:33:52.

medallist and possibly a gold medallist. If he takes silver, no-

:33:52.:33:56.

one is going to say he should have won that because he is running

:33:56.:34:01.

against the best there has ever been. He has trained really hard

:34:01.:34:06.

and that is why they have called him the beast. He has got a steely

:34:06.:34:11.

reputation and is a very strong athlete. But Usain Bolt is very

:34:11.:34:16.

relaxed. We saw a very different Usain Bolt this afternoon, much

:34:16.:34:23.

more relaxed. He is not far behind in terms of his determination. Bold

:34:23.:34:28.

feels like this is his to lose. It is his to lose. I do not think

:34:28.:34:32.

there will be much of a difference between them in terms of mind set,

:34:32.:34:38.

but there will be a big difference in the race. With every second of

:34:38.:34:43.

that goes by we get closer to knowing the answer. Who is the

:34:43.:34:49.

fastest man on earth? It is not long to go. These are not the men

:34:49.:34:55.

who are going to be running 100m. They are going to be running 3000

:34:55.:35:05.
:35:05.:35:14.

metres with a few jumps in between. The defending champion is Brimin

:35:14.:35:24.
:35:24.:35:26.

Kipruto of Kenya. That is his team- mate, Abdul my tie. -- Umar Farouk

:35:26.:35:34.

Abdulmutallab tie. The Kenyans have dominated this event. They have won

:35:34.:35:44.
:35:44.:35:51.

six in a row. Just over seven and a half laps of the track. We should

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

Brendan. Unlike the Diamond League circuit where the pacemakers run a

:36:35.:36:45.
:36:45.:37:09.

into the silver medal position. Yamile Aldama will be disappointed

:37:10.:37:19.
:37:20.:37:20.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 43 seconds

:37:20.:38:05.

in 5th place. Just over one lap have attended the Olympic Games

:38:05.:38:12.

they have come over and got a gold medal. I don't think there will be

:38:12.:38:17.

anything different tonight. The Ethiopians are taking the

:38:17.:38:22.

steeplechase a bit more seriously. There are some good times from the

:38:22.:38:32.

Ethiopians. They are taking their time, moving when they can,

:38:32.:38:40.

successful water jump. Just catch up with the men's hammer, this was

:38:40.:38:45.

Alexander Smith in the third round. An absolutely brilliant performance,

:38:45.:38:53.

a Manchester club member, to make his Olympic final. There was 71.47,

:38:54.:39:00.

he finished in 12 place. This, though, is the leader, Krisztian

:39:00.:39:06.

Pars of Hungary, second in the world list, 82 metres and 28

:39:06.:39:14.

centimetres. He produced the competition first 80-metre throw.

:39:14.:39:23.

80.59. The Americans at the front and I just wonder if the

:39:23.:39:27.

performance of the American silver- medallists in the 10,000m has given

:39:27.:39:34.

the American distance running a well-earned beast. I am sure it has.

:39:34.:39:38.

I am sure they are using the steeplechase as an event to come

:39:38.:39:43.

back with, and I was talking to the head of British endurance he said

:39:43.:39:47.

it was the next event we will move on to, some of our good distance

:39:47.:39:50.

runners will be persuaded to try and give it a chance because at the

:39:50.:39:54.

end of the day we have treated it as the poor relations, we haven't

:39:54.:40:02.

had a British finalist here today and we won a medal in 1988. The

:40:02.:40:07.

coach, and I think that is a good initiative. You have seen what they

:40:07.:40:17.
:40:17.:40:39.

do with Mo Farah or, maybe they can take this race by the scruff of the

:40:39.:40:48.

neck just yet. They are waiting. 2.52 for the opening 1,000m and

:40:48.:40:54.

that is low by their standards. We have got the defending champion,

:40:54.:41:01.

Brimin Kipruto and also Ezekiel Kemboi. We saw strange tactics from

:41:02.:41:08.

him in his heat. He ran a pretty strange race. Now it is time to get

:41:08.:41:14.

serious. They want that gold medal. They want that record straight to

:41:14.:41:23.

keep going. Kipruto, the defending champion, out of the picture at the

:41:23.:41:33.
:41:33.:41:42.

moment. The pace is now beginning to pick up. Abdel Mutai is leading.

:41:42.:41:47.

The three Kenyans move into the first four positions. Into the

:41:47.:41:52.

water jug you will see a variety of tactics. Some of them will not

:41:52.:42:02.
:42:02.:42:11.

touch the barrier. The leader did their way to the front. Roba Gari

:42:11.:42:21.
:42:21.:42:24.

is looking good and strong, the Ethiopian record holder. Benabbad

:42:24.:42:27.

is moving quite comfortably up towards the shoulder of the

:42:27.:42:37.
:42:37.:42:40.

defending champion. Brimin Kipruto fell. He tried desperately to get

:42:40.:42:48.

back into the race. He has lost about 20 metres. At the moment they

:42:48.:42:51.

are still not travelling too quickly, he could get up to them

:42:51.:42:58.

and close to them. He has been stung into action now. Abdel Mutai

:42:58.:43:07.

leads over the water. Roba Gari of Ethiopia looks good. It looks as if

:43:07.:43:13.

it is going to be too much for Kipruto. Is this going to break the

:43:13.:43:23.
:43:23.:43:25.

Kenyan sequence? Roba Gari is being hunted down by Ezekiel Kemboi.

:43:25.:43:30.

Ethiopians have never won the steeplechase title. Roba Gari is

:43:30.:43:38.

away and being chased by the former champion. Ezekiel Kemboi went very

:43:38.:43:43.

fast over that barrier. The defending champion is valiantly

:43:43.:43:52.

trying to get into the race was stopped he is close. What a race

:43:52.:44:02.
:44:02.:44:07.

this is turning out to be. Look at this finish. It looks as though the

:44:07.:44:13.

Kenyans have done it again. Benabbad is heading for a silver

:44:13.:44:23.
:44:23.:44:27.

medal. My goodness. What a champion at Ezekiel Kemboi has been. And

:44:27.:44:32.

Olympic champion eight years ago and an Olympic champion once more.

:44:32.:44:37.

What a performance and a strange finish. Why he came into lane eight

:44:37.:44:47.
:44:47.:44:48.

we do not know. He took his chance. The 2004 champion. Abdel Mutai, the

:44:48.:44:54.

other Kenyan athlete with a medal. A Ezekiel Kemboi is a character. He

:44:54.:44:58.

has got a bit of a problem at home and has got a court case hanging

:44:59.:45:06.

over his head. He has been up on a charge of stabbing. They said he

:45:06.:45:11.

could come to the Olympic Games. He is a pick up a dancer. He watches

:45:11.:45:16.

Usain Bolt. He does not run as quick as Usain Bolt, but he has got

:45:16.:45:23.

his second medal. There is the silver medallist in second place,

:45:23.:45:33.

Benabbad. Kipruto gets tricked. He stumbles, but gets up and comes

:45:33.:45:38.

back. The race was not going so quickly and I thought he might get

:45:38.:45:45.

close, but he was not able to. Maybe Ezekiel Kemboi knew what was

:45:45.:45:52.

happening and took his chance. He glances over his shoulder. Into the

:45:52.:45:59.

last water jump and Ezekiel Kemboi, 2004, the Olympic champion, he has

:45:59.:46:05.

been world champion and Commonwealth champion. Abdel Mutai

:46:05.:46:10.

in second place. Kipruto, the defending champion, cannot get

:46:10.:46:20.
:46:20.:46:30.

not enough. Abel Mutai it. Over the last hurdle, the race going on

:46:30.:46:36.

behind, he knows he is clear, what is he doing, here he comes, you did

:46:36.:46:40.

see distance runners ever in lane eight, they never even get that far

:46:40.:46:45.

out. No. 1, Ezekiel Kemboi is heading down to the mixed zone, he

:46:45.:46:49.

will do his dance, do the interviews, he will eventually

:46:49.:46:53.

collect another gold medal for himself and the famous Kenyan

:46:53.:47:00.

tradition. The Kenyans have won at least two medals in every game

:47:00.:47:04.

since 1980 it, they have done it again. Ezekiel Kemboi, champion

:47:04.:47:10.

eight years ago, champion once more. Not a fast time but a great race.

:47:10.:47:14.

The Frenchman picked up another silver-medal, just as he did in

:47:14.:47:20.

Beijing. Abel Mutai, not fancied for a medal, but part of a great

:47:20.:47:29.

nation of runners, and the Kenyans absolutely brilliant once more.

:47:29.:47:33.

to go well for Christine Ohuruogu to get round to speak to us, she

:47:33.:47:38.

did a great lap of honour, enjoyed every single moment of it. Here is

:47:38.:47:44.

what she said afterwards. He raced here in Strafford in the Olympic

:47:44.:47:54.
:47:54.:47:57.

Stadium tonight, a silver medal -- Stratford. Reaction? I was stunned.

:47:57.:48:06.

I was heartbroken, actually. I was heartbroken, really was. To lose

:48:06.:48:14.

your title like that, it was tough. But she is a worthy competitor and

:48:14.:48:19.

she ran a good race. I have to be happy with what I got, it could

:48:19.:48:24.

have been worse! You were charging down at her straight, looked like a

:48:24.:48:27.

good have been Beijing all over again. I know, but I tightened up,

:48:27.:48:33.

I could feel my shoulders lifting. It is really hard to control when

:48:33.:48:39.

you are under fatigue. I thought I still had some time, but then the

:48:39.:48:44.

line came too soon and I thought, it is gone. After that

:48:44.:48:48.

inspirational night last night how much did that age you on for what

:48:48.:48:53.

you needed to do? He was great, they did really well. We are all

:48:53.:48:58.

surprised. I always came into the camp with one thing, and one thing

:48:58.:49:08.

only, continue my reign as Olympic champion. A bit disappointed.

:49:08.:49:12.

you enjoy that lap of honour because you got such a fantastic

:49:12.:49:16.

reception? A I just wanted to say thank you to all the people who

:49:16.:49:20.

have come up, made these games special, everybody I have spoken to,

:49:20.:49:23.

and on British athletes have also what a great crowd you have an

:49:23.:49:29.

great atmosphere. It is great everybody has got behind the Games.

:49:29.:49:34.

They have all helped to make it the games that it is, they did it. We

:49:34.:49:38.

are just here to perform, but the crowd turn up and supporters, even

:49:38.:49:45.
