Hello from Olympic Park. Great Britain are a dizzying third place

:00:33.:00:36.

in the medals table. Medals are being added at a rate that is

:00:36.:00:41.

making us feel giddy. This afternoon will be keeping a close

:00:41.:00:49.

eye on at least four Olympic venues, for maybe more. All three of Great

:00:49.:00:53.

Britain's women's boxers are in quarter-final action at the ExCeL

:00:53.:00:58.

centre and all three could guarantee at least bronze. Three

:00:58.:01:03.

gymnastics medals already for Britain's men so far. Could it

:01:03.:01:10.

finally be Beth Tweddle's turn? She is on the uneven bars final at

:01:10.:01:16.

2:50pm. Silver on horseback for Britain already, now our show

:01:16.:01:22.

jumpers, led by Nick Skelton, go into this afternoon's show jumping

:01:22.:01:27.

in joint second place. From 4:00pm at the Velodrome, Jason Kenny goes

:01:27.:01:31.

for gold in the individual sprint, he has been in scorching form and

:01:31.:01:39.

is hoping to follow in the wheel marks of Sir Chris Hoy.

:01:39.:01:43.

We are zipping back to Eton Dorney Lake, the rowers have made way for

:01:43.:01:47.

the sprint canoeists, flat water, flat out for them. Something that

:01:47.:01:52.

Tim Brabants has been achieving since he first took bronze in his

:01:52.:01:58.

kayak in Sydney. Then another bronze and gold for the 35-year-old

:01:58.:02:02.

doctor in the 1,000m sprint. He is attempting to become only the 4th

:02:02.:02:12.
:02:12.:02:15.

man in Olympic history to defend this may be a stretch too far after

:02:15.:02:19.

his injury problems. Coming back well after last year, when he

:02:19.:02:29.

really was in trouble. He is up against some stiff competition. The

:02:29.:02:34.

Canadian is the world champion. The New Zealander alongside him. It is

:02:34.:02:40.

the first four to go through and the remaining go into the B final.

:02:40.:02:47.

Only in the A final can you compete for the medals. The Canadian again

:02:47.:02:53.

goes out strongly. He has a comfortable lead at the moment. He

:02:53.:03:02.

is looking player at the front. -- Clear at the front. He drives the

:03:02.:03:12.
:03:12.:03:16.

paddle through the water. The first four go into the A final. The Dane

:03:16.:03:20.

will be someone to reckon with, he looked very impressive in his heat.

:03:20.:03:28.

He is up alongside Brabants. The Canadian did not fade in the heats

:03:28.:03:33.

at all. Each of these paddlers have their own game plan it that they

:03:33.:03:37.

will be trying to stick to, trying not to react too much to what is

:03:37.:03:41.

happening around them as the race unfolds. Tim Brabants is looking

:03:41.:03:48.

controlled at the moment. Most of the noise as they approached the

:03:48.:03:51.

stance will be for Tim Brabants but he is beginning to fade as they

:03:51.:03:59.

come up to the halfway mark. Brabants hangs on to the 4th

:03:59.:04:04.

position at the moment. Others are coming up to threaten. A bit of a

:04:04.:04:09.

separation between the first five and the rest. The Canadian is

:04:09.:04:19.
:04:19.:04:26.

there and just four automatic places. Van Koeverden Is clear in

:04:26.:04:36.
:04:36.:04:37.

first. The noise begins to swell at Eton Dorney. This is where we will

:04:37.:04:44.

expect a break from Larsson, we expect a quick finish from him.

:04:44.:04:51.

Brabants is fading a bit more at the top of your picture. Larsson is

:04:51.:04:59.

making a move now. Brabants is down in 5th at the moment. Those four

:04:59.:05:07.

are looking like the four through to the A final. Tim Brabants'

:05:07.:05:12.

Olympic reign may be coming to an end. He is nearest to the crowd at

:05:12.:05:17.

the top of your picture. He will hear the noise, it is mostly for

:05:17.:05:25.

him. Van Koeverden Is looking strong for Canada. Behind them, a

:05:25.:05:31.

fierce race is developing. The first four go through. At the

:05:31.:05:37.

moment, Brabants, it is so close between him and the Bulgarians for

:05:37.:05:47.
:05:47.:05:54.

close. It certainly was, he really pushed it down the last section. I

:05:54.:06:01.

am not sure, it is going to be very tight. Van Koeverden Was

:06:01.:06:06.

untouchable in first place, coming through fairly easily. His main

:06:06.:06:14.

threat it is in the next semi-final, Max Hoff. Tim Brabants is true,

:06:14.:06:20.

look how close it was. -- is through. I don't think he's going

:06:20.:06:24.

to threaten for a medal in the final, but just to be in the final

:06:24.:06:28.

as the defending champion is quite an achievement, with the injury

:06:28.:06:34.

problems he has had with his Through to the final by the skin of

:06:34.:06:39.

your teeth. It was certainly a tough race. I tried not to raise

:06:39.:06:43.

too hard in the heat because there is such a short time between the

:06:43.:06:48.

heat and the semi-final. Normally you have two days. I kind of blow

:06:48.:06:53.

the cobwebs away in the heat. Unfortunately I drew the outside

:06:53.:06:57.

lane. The cross wind comes across from the right hand side. When I

:06:57.:07:03.

saw I had lane one I knew I would have my work cut out. The roar of

:07:03.:07:09.

the crowd is incredible. I didn't know quite where I was in the race,

:07:09.:07:14.

I knew I was in touch. I looked across and saw the Bulgarian guide,

:07:14.:07:19.

a very tight race but I am really pleased I made the final. I am not

:07:19.:07:23.

in the Beijing shape but glad to be in the final to try to defend the

:07:23.:07:28.

title. How far do you think you are from Beijing shape? It is hard to

:07:28.:07:35.

say, the quality of the K1 is insane. The last four International

:07:36.:07:42.

races has had a different winner in every race. Any guy could went,

:07:43.:07:49.

Adam is in fantastic form. I am in the final. Anything could happen in

:07:49.:07:54.

the final. I am in good shape. Fantastic, having the support that

:07:54.:07:58.

I have had. You mention that lane one was a negative and you talk

:07:59.:08:03.

about the crowd, the upside was that they roared you on every way.

:08:03.:08:08.

It is incredible. You hear the Rose talking about it, they said it was

:08:08.:08:12.

an amazing experience. Being in lane one, I could really appreciate

:08:12.:08:16.

it. The noise is phenomenal. Waiting for my name to come up in

:08:16.:08:24.

the 4th spot, that is fantastic, when my name came up. I saw my wife

:08:24.:08:31.

and my daughter... Your wife missed out on Beijing? It was massively

:08:31.:08:35.

expensive to fly out there and they get more nervous than I do when it

:08:35.:08:40.

comes to racing. It is nice to have my family here. Hopefully your

:08:40.:08:44.

family and this crowd can lift you in the final. Good luck. I hope so,

:08:45.:08:54.

His final is on Wednesday. He says he is not in Beijing shape when he

:08:54.:09:02.

won the gold. But a terrific achievement, at the age of 35. He

:09:02.:09:07.

is in the final once again. We have had huge crowds down there and huge

:09:07.:09:12.

crowds here. You never get tired of seeing a stadium at the Olympic

:09:12.:09:17.

Games that is chock-a-block at 10 o'clock am. 80,000 people in there.

:09:17.:09:21.

And 80,000 people streaming out and going for a bit of a wander around.

:09:22.:09:25.

There were 50,000 people in Greenwich Park, it seems a long

:09:25.:09:30.

time ago, when the three-day event team won their silver medal. That

:09:30.:09:34.

was last Tuesday. Since then the dressage event has got under way

:09:34.:09:39.

and yesterday it was the turn of the show jumpers. Qualification to

:09:39.:09:44.

place with the team that medals to be decided today. Nick Skelton has

:09:44.:09:49.

been riding for Great Britain since 1980, these are his six games. We

:09:49.:09:53.

will be showing you how he fared a little bit later on, but let's give

:09:53.:10:01.

you a quick reminder of what is Equestrian jumping. Jumping is

:10:01.:10:06.

contested in an enclosed arena over a course of 500 to 600 metres in

:10:06.:10:12.

length. There are between 12 and 16 obstacles. They must be negotiated

:10:12.:10:18.

in a specific order. A set time is allowed to complete the course.

:10:18.:10:22.

Scoring is in the form of penalties for a range of indiscretions. If

:10:22.:10:26.

penalty points are equal, competitors will be separated

:10:26.:10:31.

according to the time taken. It doesn't matter how ungainly a horse

:10:31.:10:35.

or rider may appear. Style is not under consideration in the judging

:10:35.:10:42.

of showjumping. The Olympic showjumping medals will be

:10:42.:10:47.

contested over five rounds in total. The first round his qualification,

:10:47.:10:52.

the individual competition. The second and third round decide the

:10:52.:10:56.

medals in the team competition. The 4th and 5th rounds are the final

:10:56.:11:01.

stages of the individual competition. Consistently clean

:11:01.:11:04.

rounds are the most important element in determining the winner,

:11:04.:11:08.

although time is also of the essence and can become the deciding

:11:08.:11:12.

factor. If you would like to get involved

:11:12.:11:22.

in Olympic sports, go to our The situation after the qualifying

:11:22.:11:27.

rounds yesterday looks good. Saudi Arabia, very surprising they are up

:11:27.:11:31.

there in first position, after an there in first position, after an

:11:31.:11:40.

excellent effort from their team. Britain has not won a jumping medal

:11:40.:11:44.

for 28 years but things look good for Nick Skelton and his team,

:11:44.:11:45.

for Nick Skelton and his team, going in the final round this

:11:45.:11:53.

afternoon. Lizzie green what use is in Greenwich. It is looking

:11:53.:11:58.

exciting and promising, but surprised with Saudi Arabia at the

:11:58.:12:04.

top? It was a surprise. It was not a complete surprise because they

:12:04.:12:10.

have been creeping up the rankings. One of the riders came second in

:12:10.:12:13.

the World Championships two years ago. One of the biggest surprises

:12:13.:12:21.

is that they are at the top with just one fault. There are three

:12:21.:12:27.

countries who are not even through, who you would have expected to.

:12:27.:12:30.

Considering the pedigree of Great Britain's show jumpers, another

:12:30.:12:37.

surprise. What do you put the lack of medal success down to? It is

:12:37.:12:42.

difficult. British showjumping has been in the doldrums since 1984,

:12:42.:12:47.

the last time they won any medal in the showjumping. The last time they

:12:47.:12:51.

won a gold was in 1952. They won a couple of bronze medals at European

:12:51.:12:56.

level. It is down to the horses. The reason that Saudi Arabia are

:12:56.:12:59.

doing well is that they have quite a lot of money behind them, they

:12:59.:13:03.

have worked very hard, they have enough cash to keep horses in their

:13:03.:13:11.

country. Britain has already lost a horse to the Saudis. We need owners

:13:11.:13:16.

who are prepared to keep their horses. I think showjumping is one

:13:16.:13:19.

of the others competitions to win an Olympic medal. There are 16

:13:19.:13:25.

fences out there. 32 in total, this is the second round. Every single

:13:25.:13:28.

one of those fences could be the difference between gold and no

:13:28.:13:31.

medal at all. If you look at that building in the background with the

:13:31.:13:36.

pointy roof, number-one Canary Wharf. They say that to win a medal,

:13:36.:13:40.

to complete the team showjumping here at an Olympic Games, every

:13:40.:13:46.

team will have jumped in total, the height of that building. About 300

:13:46.:13:50.

metres. A lot of fences and a lot of room for error. It has got

:13:50.:13:58.

bigger, it is already pretty big. Apparently the time will be quite

:13:58.:14:01.

difficult to get, we are set for an exciting final day of showjumping

:14:01.:14:09.

here in Greenwich. How many fences will they have to negotiate? It is

:14:09.:14:14.

13 fences, 16 obstacles. Some of the fences are combinations. Nick

:14:14.:14:20.

Skelton, six Olympics, not counting Moscow when Britain boycotted the

:14:20.:14:28.

Games. Ben Maher, Nick and Ben have not had a single fence down. They

:14:28.:14:30.

are on joint first place in the individual competition which

:14:30.:14:36.

concludes on Wednesday. Scott brash is on eight faults, Peter Charles

:14:36.:14:46.
:14:46.:14:49.

has had eight fences down in each We will be back life for that,

:14:49.:14:54.

enjoy. You may remember that history was made with the start of

:14:54.:14:58.

the women's boxing events at the Games. I noted that women's boxing

:14:58.:15:02.

is actually a demonstration event at the St Louis Games of 1904, when

:15:02.:15:05.

the ladies completed in knickerbockers. How times have

:15:05.:15:12.

changed, thankfully. Nicola Adams starter campaign today. The world

:15:12.:15:22.
:15:22.:15:37.

silver medallist takes on petrol or Nicola, a two-time world medallist.

:15:37.:15:43.

I was 13 years old, and I wasn't nervous at all. I just wanted to

:15:43.:15:48.

get in there. It all started off with Nicola coming down to the gym

:15:48.:15:54.

with me. Was it your intention to take it to a boxing session? No, I

:15:54.:15:59.

didn't even realise they had boxing. She went off and did her own thing.

:15:59.:16:03.

I knew she wouldn't get her and, because there were trainers and

:16:03.:16:08.

coaches there. It was something for the kids to do. It is very

:16:08.:16:16.

expensive, all of the equipment, so it hasn't been easy. To do a's --

:16:17.:16:22.

the days of boxing be Olympic sport for men only are over. Women boxers

:16:22.:16:28.

will be able to compete at the Olympics. I think if women want to

:16:28.:16:38.
:16:38.:16:40.

I wasn't very interested in women's boxing, I didn't like to see girls

:16:40.:16:47.

getting hit. But I could see the determination in the girls. Within

:16:47.:16:54.

18 months, we had five in the world's top 10 at their weight. In

:16:54.:16:59.

2008, European Championships, we got seven medals. How do you feel

:16:59.:17:06.

about women's boxing now? I love it. She has got this amazing smile, a

:17:06.:17:10.

slight frame. She doesn't strike you as someone you would associate

:17:10.:17:17.

with boxing. Exactly. She has flat feet, so she wouldn't be a runner.

:17:18.:17:27.
:17:28.:17:31.

There was a time, not so long ago, when it was nearly all over for you.

:17:31.:17:36.

I had a really serious back injury. I was in bed for three months,

:17:36.:17:42.

which is frustrating, because I was such a get-up-and-go person. The GB

:17:42.:17:46.

selections were going on, and I couldn't train. I went from being

:17:46.:17:52.

able to do 300 sit-ups a day to not being able to do one. Did you think

:17:52.:17:57.

this was it the you? I thought that a few times. When I started

:17:57.:18:03.

punching a game, I was so slow and a bit overweight. I saw everybody

:18:03.:18:09.

on the GB team, flying up and down. I thought, I can never get back to

:18:09.:18:13.

how I was before. I said to the coaches, am I ready to come back at

:18:13.:18:19.

this level so quickly? And they said, yes, you can do this. She was

:18:19.:18:26.

to become Olympic champion world champion, so she works hard. It is

:18:26.:18:36.
:18:36.:18:40.

because of the Nicolas that the I have been boxing for so long, and

:18:40.:18:45.

I have won a lot of tournaments. The European Championships, getting

:18:45.:18:50.

old, and a silver medal at the worlds. I couldn't have asked for a

:18:50.:18:54.

better career. And what would it mean to have an Olympic gold medal

:18:54.:19:01.

about there. I would give that Olympic medal a whole shelf! I knew

:19:01.:19:06.

I was up against it. The five-time world champion. I thought, this is

:19:06.:19:11.

my dream, this is my time, and the bell went and I went out and did

:19:11.:19:16.

the business! Talk me through the moment you knew you had qualified

:19:16.:19:23.

for the Olympics. I can't describe it. All the hard work, the tears,

:19:23.:19:29.

the ups and downs, it was all for that moment. I think Nicola has got

:19:29.:19:34.

the brightest smile in boxing. We will see her fighting live later

:19:34.:19:38.

this afternoon on BBC Three. Quite a weekend in the Olympic Stadium,

:19:38.:19:48.

wasn't it? And Golden Globe for the Olympics on Saturday, and a silver

:19:48.:19:58.
:19:58.:20:00.

lining yesterday in the women's little out of the blocks, but is

:20:00.:20:09.

quickly up. And that is a fast start from the American. And so is

:20:09.:20:13.

Christine Ohuruogu, writing this from the beginning. The Russian

:20:13.:20:18.

goes past Sanya Richards-Ross, but Christine Ohuruogu has really

:20:18.:20:25.

attacked this first 200m. DeeDee Trotter is trying to get into this,

:20:25.:20:31.

but Christine Ohuruogu has a chance here. There are five or six of them

:20:31.:20:36.

here. DeeDee Trotter is coming through, and Christine Ohuruogu is

:20:36.:20:44.

coming again. Can she get it this time? Will she make it? Sanya

:20:44.:20:48.

Richards-Ross takes the gold. Christine Ohuruogu, a Stirling,

:20:48.:20:53.

sterling effort to get the silver. For a moment, I thought it was

:20:53.:21:02.

going to happen all over again, just like four years ago. But Sanya

:21:02.:21:08.

Richards-Ross is a worthy champion. She is a great 400m runner. And of

:21:08.:21:15.

the silver to Christine Ohuruogu. What can you say about Christine?

:21:15.:21:19.

Every time, saves her best for the Olympics, for the World

:21:19.:21:24.

Championships. Forget all the other races, this is the one that matters

:21:24.:21:29.

to her, and she gets the best out of herself again. Only ever runs

:21:29.:21:35.

under 50 seconds in major finals. A remarkable run for her, but hats

:21:35.:21:40.

off to Sanya Richards-Ross. The overwhelming reaction? I was

:21:40.:21:50.
:21:50.:21:54.

stunned. I was... I just... I was heartbroken, actually, I really was.

:21:54.:22:02.

To have... To lose your title like that, it was tough. But Sanya is a

:22:02.:22:06.

worthy competitor, and she ran a good race. I have to be happy with

:22:06.:22:11.

what I got. It could have been worse. It looked like it could have

:22:11.:22:16.

been Beijing all over again as you charged down that straight. I know,

:22:16.:22:21.

but I tightened up. I could feel my shoulders lifting. It is really

:22:21.:22:27.

hard to control when you are under fatigue. I thought I had more time,

:22:27.:22:32.

but the line came too soon. I always came here for one thing only,

:22:32.:22:41.

to continue my reign as Olympic Cham -- champion, so I am a bit

:22:41.:22:50.

Well, it was a pugnacious attempted to a title. You said last night

:22:50.:22:55.

your heart broken. 15 hours later, have you revise your assessment?

:22:55.:23:00.

Yes, I did a lap of honour afterwards, and just seeing how

:23:00.:23:05.

proud the people were of May, it kind of brought home that even

:23:05.:23:11.

though I didn't get gold, it was like having your family out there.

:23:11.:23:15.

I probably any new a small percentage of them, but it really

:23:15.:23:19.

felt special to have everybody cheering you on regardless of how I

:23:20.:23:27.

thought I did. And on the podium, everyone still waiting behind to

:23:27.:23:31.

watch me receive my medal, and to have them all there was really

:23:31.:23:37.

special. In years to come, people will ask you to do seminars on how

:23:37.:23:41.

to save your best for major championships, and use the rounds

:23:41.:23:47.

to your advantage. How do you do it? It is not something I do. I

:23:47.:23:52.

wish I could run a lot faster and set myself up, but it just never

:23:52.:23:56.

happens. This year was a bit unusual because I lost a lot of

:23:56.:24:02.

ground, so I was in effect starting a game try to learn the 400 rhythm

:24:02.:24:06.

again. The 400 is not just about having speed or endurance, it is

:24:06.:24:12.

about being able to learn your rhythm. I would like to going

:24:12.:24:16.

running faster, but it is never the case. You just have to go into the

:24:16.:24:21.

championship, and I know that once I'm in there and I have three days

:24:21.:24:28.

to work, I invariably work, and it always works out. It does, because

:24:28.:24:31.

the three times you have run under 50 seconds have been in the

:24:31.:24:36.

absolute key moment that you needed to! Yes, and I am glad that I have

:24:36.:24:41.

that skill and I know how to get my body to work and how to be able to

:24:41.:24:45.

operate under that kind of pressure. Looking back on the race, is there

:24:45.:24:50.

anything you would, could, should have done differently? I don't want

:24:51.:24:56.

to come out and say would, could, should. But the top bend, I think I

:24:56.:25:00.

got a little bit lost, I remember just blinking and then seeing the

:25:01.:25:06.

whole world in front of me, and I thought, not again. It was almost

:25:06.:25:11.

like a repeat, but I was on the outside. I think being far out in

:25:11.:25:15.

lane eight, it was a lot harder to judge, because you are so far from

:25:15.:25:20.

what is going on. But I think maybe I lost a little bit of focus coming

:25:20.:25:23.

into the top, maybe it was a little bit of apprehension that the race

:25:23.:25:28.

was going to be over soon. I think maybe I could have started my prep

:25:28.:25:32.

for the home straight a lot earlier, which are neglected to do. That

:25:32.:25:38.

might have got me my gold. Everybody was delighted with silver,

:25:38.:25:45.

and the way you ran it was huge. Yes, me and my coach went back

:25:45.:25:50.

afterwards, and they think we can say that I'm happy with it. There

:25:50.:25:56.

is always more I am learning about the four, and there is always more

:25:56.:26:02.

I am learning, so there is always more to do. The whole atmosphere of

:26:02.:26:06.

the Olympics, which has overwhelmed many people so far, didn't really

:26:06.:26:10.

hit you until you stood on the podium itself. You looked

:26:11.:26:15.

overwhelmed at that point. What was going through your mind? A think

:26:15.:26:20.

that was the first time I allowed it to sink in. All the other times

:26:20.:26:26.

I was competing, I had to just focus on what I had to do. I knew

:26:26.:26:31.

if I got too emotionally wrapped up, it would be to my detriment. Other

:26:31.:26:34.

people can handle that, but I don't handle the excitement very well in

:26:34.:26:39.

terms of not allowing it to affect my performance, so I was just

:26:39.:26:44.

trying really hard to focus on my job. There was only the first few

:26:44.:26:47.

days, I had loads of time afterwards to soak up the

:26:47.:26:51.

atmosphere. And had you wanted to, you could have jogged home. You're

:26:51.:26:56.

from about a mile away! Yes, I spoke to my mum and dad, and they

:26:56.:27:02.

walked home from the stadium. Which is quite funny. It is really weird.

:27:02.:27:08.

I am just so proud of the whole thing. And this is always going to

:27:08.:27:13.

be my area, it is where I was born and raised. In which case, you look

:27:13.:27:16.

at what is here, and you have seen this develop over the last seven

:27:16.:27:20.

years. What is it doing to your community, and what you hope it

:27:20.:27:26.

will do? I hope ultimately that we will continue with the spirit of

:27:26.:27:30.

the Olympics. If it is something that people can use to pull them

:27:30.:27:33.

together and to continue to move the community for what, I think

:27:33.:27:38.

that is great. It is great to have that, especially for the youngsters

:27:38.:27:42.

that grow up here and can go back to school in September and say, I

:27:42.:27:46.

was at the stadium. And they experience all this, this is just

:27:46.:27:49.

something that I don't think any of us could have imagined would happen

:27:49.:27:56.

when we were growing up. I really couldn't have seen this happening

:27:56.:28:05.

as a child growing up, never. it is not finished. 4x400m. Yes, I

:28:05.:28:10.

have got one day off, and then I get back into training tomorrow,

:28:10.:28:17.

hopefully I will meet up with the girls, and it looks good. From what

:28:17.:28:23.

we saw yesterday in the final, I think we really have a good chance.

:28:23.:28:28.

I just want to finish by taking you back to about a year ago. When you

:28:28.:28:33.

qualified, you came off the track and you told everybody, I am broken.

:28:33.:28:39.

And 12 months on, a silver medal at the Olympic Games. How did you fix

:28:39.:28:44.

it? And what are you going to do now? Coming back from debut was one

:28:44.:28:49.

of the biggest shocks I have ever had. It wasn't so much the

:28:49.:28:54.

disqualification, but how the wind. It was one of the hardest years I

:28:54.:28:59.

have ever had. With the injury, and then Crystal Palace where I

:28:59.:29:03.

finished last, and then me and my coach had three weeks to try to

:29:03.:29:09.

turn it round, and we trained until the last moment, managed to get a

:29:09.:29:13.

400m run out of me, and then to know that we did all that work and

:29:13.:29:20.

get disqualified in the first round, it just compounded about fortune on

:29:20.:29:28.

top of bad fortune. But I went back to work, and I love what I do, so

:29:29.:29:34.

going back to training was never a problem. It was just a matter of

:29:34.:29:37.

believing in what I have and believing in my face and keeping

:29:37.:29:46.

everything together. -- believing in my faith it is an amazing

:29:46.:29:53.

comeback story. Before you go, can we have a look at this? I should go

:29:53.:29:58.

and get my Beijing one from home as well. Yes, you could just go

:29:58.:30:05.

clinking around the park. Yes, this is like gold to me. It is like gold

:30:05.:30:15.
:30:15.:30:19.

to ask, too. Lovely to see you, It is getting tense and twitchy in

:30:19.:30:29.
:30:29.:30:32.

the traditional indoor version of The key moves within a phase of

:30:32.:30:41.

play are the surf, the pass, the set, the spike, the block and the

:30:41.:30:49.

dig. There are two main types of serve. The jump serve is an

:30:49.:30:56.

overhand smash that generates power. The float serve is hit without spin,

:30:56.:30:59.

making the flight of the ball unpredictable and hard to read for

:30:59.:31:06.

the opponents. The pass is used by the player receiving the ball from

:31:06.:31:13.

a service, and is an attempt to pass the ball to the team's setter.

:31:13.:31:17.

The set is where the player positions the ball, enabling their

:31:17.:31:24.

team to attack. The spike, also known as the smash, involves

:31:24.:31:30.

players hitting the ball over wrong, in an attempt to finish a rally and

:31:30.:31:37.

win a point. The block is -- involves fund -- front court

:31:37.:31:41.

players attempting to block the ball at the net, in order to win a

:31:41.:31:45.

point for their team. The dig is a defensive move, and is used when

:31:46.:31:50.

players receive the ball after a spike. Athletes will do whatever it

:31:50.:31:54.

takes to keep the ball off the floor, sometimes in spectacular

:31:54.:32:04.
:32:04.:32:09.

We are offering the men's competition now, Russia against

:32:09.:32:16.

Serbia, who need to win this final group game to progress to the

:32:16.:32:22.

middle stages. Serbia have never won a medal in their history, they

:32:22.:32:25.

thought Novak Djokovic would be the man yesterday but he was not to be

:32:25.:32:33.

at Wimbledon. Russia won the first two sets. It is 19-18 and

ace? It was, what a great serve. needed to be playing all day, wipe

it off the top of the block. These are good serves. It is so easy to

:34:01.:34:11.
:34:11.:34:25.

say it. Again, testing those in the mountainous one. Both of the

:34:25.:34:35.
:34:35.:35:05.

players, nice and tight together. In the end to, it was killed.

:35:09.:35:14.

facing crosscourt, I am not sure why. At the last moment, the

:35:15.:35:17.

Russian blocker dropped his hands to the right to try to take the

:35:17.:35:27.
:35:27.:36:06.

shot away. It had already gone too he was trying to do a familiar

ball coming towards him and the Russian blogger getting up there. -

:36:22.:36:32.

- the Russian blocker. That was way along. The Russians are quite happy

:36:32.:36:41.

to just trade points. Another step closer. Three more and it is match

:36:41.:36:51.
:36:51.:36:51.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 41 seconds

:36:51.:37:32.

Russia, dig, said, Spike, take that they were doing, they had

:37:32.:37:42.
:37:42.:38:02.

The big man. -- he stirs himself. We have not seen the number 18 at

:38:02.:38:06.

all. I believe he has only played in one game so far. It could be

:38:06.:38:12.

that Russia are keeping their cards close to their chest. It is a treat

:38:12.:38:20.

to watch him, he is really natural and sharp. That so much point. --

:38:20.:38:29.

that his match point. We have played for 69 minutes. Russia, a

:38:29.:38:35.

number two in the world, the bronze medallists four years ago, are

:38:36.:38:45.
:38:46.:38:50.

They have been a different proposition since the number two

has come on. There has been freedom and enjoyment about his play.

:39:09.:39:41.

struggling when he is brought on, He started with the first serve, he

has finished with the final shot. It is 3-0 to Russia. Serbia are out

of the Olympic Games. Because they needed to win to pressure Germany.

:39:56.:40:05.

But Russia stride on. While we wait to watch the USA against Tunisia,

nonsense, no messing. In particular, the performance of the knee high

laugh, 86% efficiency with his to the camera and the crowd. The

:40:52.:40:56.

big man did the damage in the first set, and then left. There is

:40:56.:41:06.
:41:06.:41:17.

and they go out. The European Serbia are out. Great Britain's

volley ball as also know they are going out but they have one last

game against Argentina at 4:45pm. You cannot catch up with that and
