Welcome to Olympic Park, there is another big night of track and

:00:27.:00:31.

field ahead, in the Olympic Stadium. And the crowds are be binning to

:00:31.:00:35.

pour in again. Luckily, the rain has cleared away. It is a beautiful

:00:35.:00:44.

suby day here. We have lots to look forward to on BBC One we but we

:00:44.:00:48.

have a lot the tempt you. We will head off to the table tennis. It is

:00:48.:00:52.

the team final. China have been dominant in this. But they are up

:00:52.:00:56.

against South Korea. We will join Shirley Robertson for the latest in

:00:56.:01:00.

the sailing with Saskia Clark and Hannah Mills. They have their final

:01:00.:01:04.

two races today. We will have men's handball. That is becoming a real

:01:04.:01:10.

hit here at the games. Another fantastic match coming up for you.

:01:10.:01:13.

France against Spain. From 7.00 on BBC One, it is athletics all the

:01:13.:01:20.

way. But, China have taken all three table tennis golds so far as

:01:20.:01:25.

the games. Today the men's team are the favourites to deliver a fourth.

:01:25.:01:31.

China is so dominant at the sport, having won 23 out of 27 gold medals

:01:31.:01:35.

but this is expected back home because it's a national past time.

:01:35.:01:40.

Today they face Korea in the final which conSis of five matches

:01:40.:01:44.

similar to the Davis Cup in tennis. Four singles and one doubles. I can

:01:44.:01:49.

tell you that China have won the first two singles matches, they won

:01:49.:01:53.

them 3-1. So South Korea need a victory in the doubles to keep this

:01:53.:02:03.
:02:03.:02:09.

We join it at the start of this final. South Korea with sever. Is

:02:09.:02:19.
:02:19.:02:47.

four players on the table that that look at the bench in the way it

:02:47.:02:51.

reacts and players on the table. In an Olympic final, a level of

:02:51.:03:01.
:03:01.:03:01.

when table tennis joined the Olympics the general view was that

:03:01.:03:06.

the World Championships were still the biggest event. Exactly.

:03:06.:03:15.

remember after - what a shot! After they won the World Championships in

:03:15.:03:19.

89 following on winning the pilgrimages in 88 the world was

:03:19.:03:26.

considered the big one, by 92 that had changed. In Olympic it changes

:03:26.:03:33.

more an more. These were the discussions before table tennis

:03:33.:03:38.

entered the Olympic Games. There was a discussion at the meetings,

:03:38.:03:43.

as to whether the Olympic Games would become pre-eminent and

:03:43.:03:47.

members of the Executive Committee etc were concerned that the Olympic

:03:47.:03:50.

Games would become more important than World Championships. Nobody

:03:50.:03:58.

wanted that to happen. Now, we are 30 years on. In fact they

:03:58.:04:05.

compliment each other. They are not rivals. Yes, table tennis benefits

:04:05.:04:14.

enormously from being in the Olympics. China are flying here.

:04:14.:04:17.

The point you make from benefits from being in the Olympic programme,

:04:17.:04:24.

you have to look back over the last 11 day, that we have had here in

:04:24.:04:28.

this wonderful, wonderful stadium, and it is packed to the rafters

:04:28.:04:37.

from day one, fantastic atmosphere, and well, this must be the biggest

:04:37.:04:47.
:04:47.:05:11.

boost eng la -- English table this ascendancy, it was four years

:05:11.:05:14.

ago in Beijing that China won every possible table tennis medal. They

:05:14.:05:20.

are going to do it again. Prior to that they had never achieved that.

:05:20.:05:26.

Yes, they had champions but not every medal. Somebody from Korea,

:05:26.:05:33.

Sweden or France had spoiled the party. Now, the dominance you get

:05:33.:05:43.
:05:43.:06:03.

Singles. Numbers one and three in the world. What pair to send out!

:06:03.:06:08.

On the half-volley. There was a time when the backhand of the then

:06:08.:06:17.

holder was considered the weakness, but he is absolutely drilling the

:06:17.:06:23.

swivel wristed backhand. Terrific stuff and six game points. Only one

:06:24.:06:31.

required, that is game number one to China. 11-4 they lead by one

:06:31.:06:38.

game to love. And eerpbgs looking at the South Korean players, you

:06:38.:06:44.

are not sure we will see them again at an Olympic Games. But looking at

:06:44.:06:48.

the legacy as three outstanding Asian player, they do have a lot to

:06:48.:06:54.

look back on, with tremendous pride. Not least getting to the final of

:06:54.:07:00.

this Olympic Games. Absolutely. They, in fact, if we take one of

:07:00.:07:07.

them, the Men's Singles Championship, amazingly, the first

:07:07.:07:11.

time ever that Korea got to the team finals which I find staggering,

:07:11.:07:16.

but it is correct. Then the Olympic champion, and if you look at the

:07:16.:07:23.

history of Korean table tennis, there has been one star play er.

:07:23.:07:31.

There has maybe been a second. Where was the third? But woudge.

:07:31.:07:35.

Very difficult, whereas China, they have two reserves, who are as good

:07:35.:07:38.

as the three who are playing here, and that is the difference.

:07:38.:07:48.

Absolutely spot on. Game two. The point you made China for the centre

:07:48.:07:53.

two or three teams that would probably have dominated this

:07:53.:08:03.
:08:03.:08:29.

Olympic Games, which is a men six or Chinese. It is round

:08:29.:08:33.

about that. Reckon you could play with Chinese coaches and they would

:08:33.:08:42.

have a chance. I wouldn't be a bad team actually! Yeah, I think they

:08:42.:08:51.

would be OK. -- it. You think that if we sent out the coaches, they

:08:51.:08:55.

could come up with a medal. You are maybe right. I don't think I am

:08:56.:09:05.
:09:06.:09:13.

going to argue with that one, it is barrage of shots, forehands, back

:09:13.:09:20.

hands, serves. Tight wrist arms. Korea are caught up in a maelstrom

:09:20.:09:24.

of Chinese dazzling brilliance. mean you have made the point a few

:09:24.:09:30.

times when China get ahead they are brilliant front runners, and we are

:09:40.:09:40.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 45 seconds

:09:40.:10:25.

They have got to dictate the play so important to China, the Olympic

:10:26.:10:30.

Games, and of course, let us be fair, their respond to the immense

:10:30.:10:36.

pressure they are under, they are expected to deliver. What a shot!

:10:36.:10:41.

That maybe the shot of this final, so far. What on earth? How did he

:10:41.:10:47.

do that? It looks as if he almost didn't have enough time to play the

:10:47.:10:57.
:10:57.:10:59.

didn't have enough time to play the backhand, but he just somehow. He

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

has played two shots in succession. The top draw is, they were

:11:11.:11:20.
:11:21.:11:27.

stratospheric in their brilliance. Korea have got just a hint of a

:11:27.:11:37.
:11:37.:12:03.

Considering how well China are playing, it's a tribute to South

:12:03.:12:09.

Korea they have taken a succession of points, to close the gap to one.

:12:09.:12:16.

Just a bit surprise they haven't taken a time out. Good point. And

:12:16.:12:26.

Probably too late to take the time out now. Because often the Chinese

:12:26.:12:30.

will take the time out when they are ahead, and their opponents have

:12:30.:12:40.
:12:40.:13:01.

And that touched, didn't it. It did. That's the modern day backhand,

:13:01.:13:07.

that is the development in the last four or five years, and the master

:13:07.:13:13.

showing the backhand return of serve, the forearm vertical and

:13:13.:13:17.

then the wrist, the wrist coming round the back of the ball to

:13:17.:13:23.

create a mixture of top spin and side spin. He is so clever with the

:13:23.:13:33.
:13:33.:13:56.

Second serve in this sequence of Really is a different level they

:13:56.:14:01.

are playing at Matthew. I think the South Korean pair have played the

:14:01.:14:05.

best table tennis we have seen from them in the competition and they

:14:05.:14:15.
:14:15.:14:22.

It is long. Game number two to China, 11-8. They lead by two games

:14:22.:14:32.
:14:32.:14:34.

to love. They are one game away from gold. The extent to which that

:14:34.:14:40.

wrist is used. Dear me. It can't bend any more. When I think there

:14:40.:14:45.

is probably more top spin on the backhand flick, that most players

:14:46.:14:53.

backhand loop. The problem is it is not just the top spin, it, as we

:14:53.:14:57.

talked about before, it the side spin. You have mentioned this.

:14:57.:15:00.

make it awkward. You are guessing. The one shot you can play against

:15:00.:15:04.

the top spin is you can block. If there is side spin the block goes

:15:04.:15:08.

down to your own side of the table. All the time with the block you are

:15:08.:15:18.

The strength of his legs are He is an absolute juggernaut,

:16:27.:16:31.

driving through the modern history of table-tennis. He looks

:16:31.:16:41.
:16:41.:16:45.

unstoppable. The ball played down A time it has been called by Korea,

:16:45.:16:49.

but it is just a matter of time. think it is an interruption of the

:16:49.:16:58.

inevitable. Correct. When you think we've got No. 11 and a former

:16:58.:17:03.

Olympic champion, and two very powerful players, it's almost like

:17:03.:17:04.

powerful players, it's almost like they have pea-shooter as when you

:17:04.:17:10.

compare it to the share forensic efficiency of everything China are

:17:10.:17:20.
:17:20.:17:20.

doing on this table tennis table. Also two very experienced players.

:17:21.:17:25.

The dosing then we saw in Manchester first in 1977. -- Oh

:17:25.:17:29.

Sangeun. They've been here for a Sangeun. They've been here for a

:17:29.:17:37.

decade and more. They have mixed it with a very, very best, but here

:17:37.:17:43.

they are the second best team in the world. Very much second best.

:17:43.:17:53.
:17:53.:18:23.

If you look at many countries, Sweden for example, they have faded

:18:23.:18:28.

after a great era. Professional football teams have a rebuilding

:18:28.:18:32.

process, but China are relentless at table tennis, there's no

:18:32.:18:42.
:18:42.:18:42.

They seem to be able to rebuild almost every day of the week.

:18:42.:18:52.

The trademark of his play. -- Jike The umpire raises her right arm in

favour of China. Tremendous return of service from Wang Hao. That is

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

That forehand on the half volley was long. China edging ever nearer

:20:56.:21:02.

to their fourth gold medal. A complete man novelisation of the

:21:02.:21:09.

top of the podium at the table tennis at the ExCeL Arena. Her most

:21:09.:21:16.

people would have predicted that in advance. But they've had to execute

:21:16.:21:22.

and every single player in the China team has done that. With

:21:22.:21:32.
:21:32.:21:35.

The backhand was long. China stand on the brink. The photographers get

:21:35.:21:44.

to their fate. Suddenly there's an anticipation in this arena. The

:21:44.:21:54.
:21:54.:22:01.

inevitable is about to happen. Four Only one required! Jubilation for

China. An embrace between Wang Hao and Jike Zhang. The men's team

coach, a former Olympic champion, salutes the crowd. This has been a

:22:15.:22:20.

domineering displayed by the men's team of the all-conquering China.

:22:20.:22:26.

South Korea have done well, brilliantly, to get to this final,

:22:26.:22:31.

but they've been comprehensively outclassed. A lovely picture there.

:22:31.:22:36.

The two coaches embrace. It is party time for China. They win the

Olympic men's team. They defeated South Korea 3-0.

:22:45.:22:50.

STUDIO: China take the gold again. This men's team was only introduced

:22:50.:22:54.

four years ago. China won it then and they have won it again here. A

:22:55.:22:59.

clean sweep of medals, they have clean sweep of medals, they have

:22:59.:23:02.

won all four in London. Since table-tennis made its Olympic debut

:23:02.:23:12.
:23:12.:23:15.

in 1988, they've won 24 gold medals We will be heading off to the south

swimming is in the doldrums after collecting just three medals in the

Kerri-Anne Payne can win tomorrow in the Serpentine for her marathon

swimmer over 10 kilometres. She won her second world title last year,

:24:18.:24:22.

she's confident, likes leading from the front, and her competitors know

:24:22.:24:29.

she's the one to beat. It is all about who is the best on the day,

:24:29.:24:39.
:24:39.:24:39.

who makes the right decisions, the People can tell me 100 million

:24:39.:24:42.

times that I have got the gold medal, I don't have the gold medal.

:24:42.:24:48.

I wish it was that easy. I have to make sure I am still in that

:24:48.:24:51.

pontoon and I am happy with everything I've done, the training

:24:51.:24:56.

of done, the preparation. And I know I'm going to get in there and

:24:56.:25:06.
:25:06.:25:09.

This is the leader, Kerri-Anne Payne. It is gold for Kerri-Anne

:25:09.:25:15.

Payne of Great Britain! I think last season took a lot more out of

:25:15.:25:20.

me than I realised. I don't sound so young, I'm 24, but I've been

:25:20.:25:25.

doing this since I was 12 years old. 12 years of distance training on my

:25:25.:25:30.

body tickets toll on me last season. I got in and had a few niggles,

:25:30.:25:36.

back injury, which took a while to get over. Then I had a kidney

:25:36.:25:42.

infection as well just after trials. But what gets me over that stuff is

:25:42.:25:50.

having a great support team. For me, open-water has been incredible. How

:25:50.:25:55.

much it has grown over the last four years. If I can just say I

:25:55.:25:59.

have inspired one or two people to get into open water and try it out,

:25:59.:26:03.

get a family to get involved in swimming, I will feel happy with

:26:03.:26:13.
:26:13.:26:16.

10 kilometres under way. Kerri-Anne Payne is going to take silver! What

:26:16.:26:24.

a race that was. I'm expecting the unexpected. Nobody seems to like to

:26:24.:26:28.

lead it so it always falls on May, which I quite like. It suits me

:26:28.:26:32.

perfectly. On the day, I'm probably going to have to really focus on

:26:32.:26:38.

what I need to do. Just so cut the atmosphere and all of the cheering.

:26:38.:26:48.
:26:48.:26:54.

I know most of it will be for me, We certainly wish her well. She did

:26:54.:27:04.
:27:04.:27:08.

so well in Beijing. Will it be gold We are heading down to the south

:27:08.:27:12.

coast to find out what has been happening in the sailing. We can

:27:12.:27:18.

join Shirley Robertson. Won gold medal decided today in the 49 as.

:27:18.:27:20.

Stevie Morrison and Ben Rhodes going for that. They were lying in

:27:20.:27:24.

5th place overnight, did they get closer to the medals? It was going

:27:24.:27:28.

to be a tough battle for top six of them could have secured bronze and

:27:28.:27:34.

it was about all right to the end. Unfortunately, not for them. Could

:27:34.:27:39.

it was hard to see them at the end of that. Two other classes on the

:27:39.:27:42.

water today so what has been happening? What happened to Saskia

:27:42.:27:49.

and Hanna? Great excitement. Most of the excitement is about

:27:49.:27:54.

tomorrow's medal race, a head-to- head between GB and Australia in

:27:54.:27:59.

the men's 470 class. Faye had a day after plan and think about tomorrow,

:27:59.:28:03.

but the women -- women were in action. Two races before Friday's

:28:03.:28:07.

middle race. If they had a great race today, they could secure a

:28:07.:28:11.

medal. As you said, in the 49er class, they had a medal race, but

:28:11.:28:17.

it was a tough battle for top we also had done women's match racers

:28:17.:28:20.

in action. A good day today and they would proceed to the semi-

:28:20.:28:30.

More medal race drama was promised today in Weymouth. In the 49 or

:28:30.:28:33.

class, gold and silver had been secured by Australia and New

:28:33.:28:38.

Zealand, but sixteens had a chance of bronze, including the British

:28:38.:28:44.

pair. -- six teams. Light winds made a tough course even trickier

:28:44.:28:48.

and that the first mark, the Austrians were leading, motivated

:28:48.:28:54.

by that battle for bronze. This is a two way fight at the moment, it

:28:54.:28:57.

doesn't matter where anywhere else's, it is Austria against Great

:28:57.:29:02.

Britain. But the Brits slicked-back as

:29:02.:29:06.

Denmark started to mount a charge. -- slipped back. Great Britain have

:29:06.:29:13.

lost significant ground on the Austrians. The Austrian's won the

:29:13.:29:18.

race, but Denmark claimed bronze behind the golden Aussies and the

:29:18.:29:23.

Silver Line firms of New Zealand. It was amazing. We have sailed

:29:23.:29:26.

brilliantly for four years. This week has been one of our best weeks

:29:26.:29:30.

so far. It is great that it happened at the Olympics and today

:29:30.:29:34.

was about enjoying the race. A shame it wasn't that windy, it was

:29:34.:29:39.

a tough race to get around. But it was great for us. It was awesome to

:29:39.:29:43.

enjoy it with the Kiwis. women's match racers were also on

:29:43.:29:47.

course this afternoon. It was the last day of the quarter-finals and

:29:47.:29:50.

it came down to the final race against Russia. There was nothing

:29:50.:29:55.

to choose between these two and there were plenty of lead changes

:29:55.:29:58.

and in the yen to the east Europeans took the wind and Great

:29:58.:30:06.

Britain's women finished their fleet racing with a second place,

:30:06.:30:09.

while New Zealand their main rivals for gold, managed only 18th. That

:30:09.:30:14.

means they are level on points, both guaranteed silver and it is

:30:14.:30:18.

winner takes all in the finale on Friday. We are waiting for the

:30:19.:30:22.

confirmation. It is provisional but it will be a head-to-head, you are

:30:22.:30:26.

equal points with New Zealand. is awesome. We had a tough race

:30:26.:30:29.

today, which we thought would let them off the hook a bit, but we

:30:29.:30:33.

came back with a good second race they have had the discard and that

:30:33.:30:37.

is all we wanted to go in the race with a chance of a gold medal.

:30:37.:30:44.

While the women have a lay day tomorrow the men will act out their

:30:44.:30:52.

battle against the reigning champions. Expect them to push the

:30:52.:31:00.

Australians all the way. And they are with me now. Luke Patience and

:31:00.:31:05.

Stuart. No pressure then, that is what you said. No pressure. Yeah,

:31:05.:31:11.

we have no pressure it's a win-win situation, we have sailed the

:31:12.:31:15.

regatta of our lives, to be in a position where we can't get worse

:31:15.:31:19.

than silver and that is where we are sat and gold is within our

:31:19.:31:25.

grasp, we could not have asked more. We are happy happy boys. A day off

:31:25.:31:28.

today, what do you do the day before the biggest day of your

:31:28.:31:33.

life? Yes, today we had a bit of a lie in, that is for sure. You know,

:31:33.:31:38.

just, it is quite odd the Olympics, you know with so many days, you

:31:38.:31:42.

know, days off and, you know, me and Luke like to recover well and

:31:42.:31:48.

get ready for the next day's racing, tomorrow, with it being not your

:31:48.:31:52.

typical race scenario, it is a two horse race now, and, yeah, we have

:31:52.:31:58.

been thinking about that today with our coach and a few of the more

:31:58.:32:01.

experienced members of the team. We have been talking about that and

:32:01.:32:05.

chill ought. Ben Ainslie, he is the expect on that. You had a chat with

:32:05.:32:10.

him? What is your thought about how you are going to approach tomorrow?

:32:10.:32:15.

Attack, put our hearts and souls into it and attack and don't stop.

:32:15.:32:21.

I mean, it is funy it is an odd situation to be in, it's a win-win,

:32:21.:32:27.

it is theirs to loose and ours to win. We are coming at a different

:32:27.:32:30.

perspective. A positive place, and you know, the nature of me and

:32:30.:32:36.

Stuart, we are young and excitable and we love this sport and we

:32:36.:32:39.

really relish the challenge. Tomorrow is going to be the

:32:39.:32:43.

greatest race of our lives. Whatever the outcome it has been

:32:43.:32:46.

fabulous, we didn't come here to win sill verdict we came to win the

:32:46.:32:49.

Olympic Games, and that is tomorrow's plan. Somehow, we

:32:49.:32:53.

believe you. We will quickly talk about the girls, they are mafpg you

:32:53.:32:58.

step for step, aren't they. Incredible. -- matching you. They

:32:58.:33:03.

have had a fantastic series as well. Good on them, they are World

:33:03.:33:06.

Champion coming into the week and good favourites on home water. It

:33:06.:33:10.

is fantastic for them, to be in a similar position to us, guaranteed

:33:10.:33:14.

medal, going into their race on Friday, so we will wish them well.

:33:14.:33:18.

I think they have their, the Kiwis to race against, a head-to-head

:33:18.:33:24.

with them, I think they Ron equal points, so a different scenario to

:33:24.:33:30.

our, they will be out there tog to be aggressive. Everyone loves a

:33:30.:33:35.

battle between goodbye and New Zealand, but there is one -- GB and

:33:35.:33:39.

New Zealand. There is another one, that is Great Britain versus

:33:39.:33:44.

Australia, and that is tomorrow at 1.00. Thank you. We will be back

:33:44.:33:48.

live on the south coast tomorrow, for a report on all the action out

:33:48.:33:51.

on the water. But, as promised we are going to bring you handball,

:33:51.:33:56.

which is proving to be a very popular sport here at the Olympics.

:33:56.:34:00.

It is entertaining and relentlessly fast. You may have seen a

:34:00.:34:04.

quarterfinal earlier today, when unkry -- Hungary got a last minute

:34:04.:34:09.

gold to beat the silver medallist from four years ago, Iceland. We

:34:09.:34:13.

are going to concentrate on Spain against France. France from the

:34:13.:34:16.

defending Olympic champion, they are the World Champions. We will

:34:16.:34:21.

join in the second half, 17 goals all. Our commentators is Paul Bray

:35:12.:35:25.

defender. For the first time in the games, after being 6-1 down, France

:35:25.:35:33.

take the lead. What went wrong? They were so in control, Spain. But

France weren't quite ready to give up yet, on their Olympic title

They are now trailing 17-20. And I suspect a faulty substitution was

Stan yards thought the whistle was going to go. Caught there. Pushed

outside. The Barcelona back player. Spain have done well, they finally

got going. Ironically it took a suspension to get them going.

:43:11.:43:21.
:43:21.:43:27.

Finally, he saved. He scores, and they are back in the game again.

it might be a thriller but it then Morros was coming on. And the

defensive rock. Look at that. Enough to scare any attacker.

:44:46.:44:51.

Ironically if you meet him off court he is delightful. He is a

real joker, but he cultivates the They can't quite believe it.
