Hello, and welcome back to a glorious day at London 2012. Let us

:00:35.:00:41.

hope the golden glint can continue. We are concentrating on the 10

:00:41.:00:45.

kilometre or open water swim. Here is what else is coming up on the

:00:45.:00:49.

BBC. The Nicola Adams takes on world

The stadium will go silent at five to nine tonight as Usain Bolt looks

Eaton finishes off his decathlon at Sum taekwondo quarter-final news,

:01:39.:01:49.

Jade Jones will be fighting at 3:30pm. Straight after that, Martin

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

Stamper will be on. Keri-Anne has got off to a great

:02:02.:02:06.

start in the 10km swim Open swim. Let us see how the Beijing silver-

:02:06.:02:10.

medallist is getting on in the Serpentine, in Hyde Park. Clare

:02:10.:02:18.

Balding, we were talking about her plan. That it might not be going

:02:18.:02:21.

the way she would have wanted, she would want to be further ahead of

:02:21.:02:27.

the field, are you sense in that? They have just completed half the

:02:27.:02:37.
:02:37.:02:38.

race. Keri-Anne is in 4th place. Risztov has broken away. David, we

:02:38.:02:45.

saw Risztov, turned on her back, to have a look. The halfway point is

:02:45.:02:49.

where things start to move around. Risztov made a break. She wanted to

:02:49.:02:59.

see who went with her. The top four. Keri-Anne in the first two laps,

:02:59.:03:02.

was in the top three. She is in a pack which is where she doesn't

:03:02.:03:09.

want to be. There is one hour to go. It is early days to stop worrying.

:03:09.:03:16.

We have seen her take on food. Later than anyone else. Are you

:03:16.:03:22.

happy enough? There is a long way to go. It is OK saying, I want to

:03:22.:03:28.

be at the front. If the pace is too fast, you need energy. You need a

:03:28.:03:37.

massive sprint at the end. Keri- Anne knows what pace she can go out.

:03:37.:03:42.

So, her own personal pacing is more important than where she physically

:03:42.:03:52.
:03:52.:03:52.

is? Absolutely, these dolls might be holding it too hard. -- these

:03:52.:04:02.
:04:02.:04:04.

girls. You have to be able to adapt in open water.

:04:04.:04:08.

Let us hand over to our commentators for the rest of the

:04:08.:04:18.
:04:18.:04:23.

the righthand side. Beautiful, clean water. It should really

:04:23.:04:28.

favour the pool swimmers. Strangely, they decided to have the second

:04:28.:04:34.

qualification for this Olympic Games, in Portugal, in the ocean.

:04:34.:04:41.

It was very wavy. Why you would have a wavy qualification is

:04:41.:04:48.

strange. Over half way now. Great Britain's Keri-Anne Payne, has

:04:48.:04:58.
:04:58.:05:01.

slipped back. Leading his Risztov. Grimaldi from Italy. Silver medal

:05:01.:05:05.

in the egon championships in Shanghai last year. Risztov tried

:05:05.:05:11.

to break them. He she is going tight on the line, aiming for the

:05:11.:05:17.

buoy. The pack his way over. It has been taken over to the right.

:05:17.:05:24.

Risztov, and second place will be Anderson. For the rest of them, it

:05:25.:05:34.
:05:35.:05:36.

will not be easy. If you going, in a bunch, you end up being split out.

:05:36.:05:43.

If there are two metres, per-person, but in a bunch, you can be even 20

:05:43.:05:52.

metres behind, very quickly. Just by going around one of those buoys

:05:52.:06:02.
:06:02.:06:20.

somebody putting a shot of gel into their mouth, for high energy. Not

:06:20.:06:29.

wasting too much. There is the British flag, Keri-

:06:29.:06:38.

Anne would have taken a feed. The Hong Kong swimmer, born in London,

:06:38.:06:48.
:06:48.:06:52.

Tang. She was 12th in the qualifying for this. Anderson,

:06:52.:07:00.

every time we see her, she makes a quantum leap in has whirring. And

:07:00.:07:10.
:07:10.:07:10.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 44 seconds

:07:10.:07:54.

the Spaniard, with a long and are starting to bunch up again.

:07:55.:07:59.

Moving all over the place. Keri- Anne is staying out of the big

:07:59.:08:06.

bunch. She doesn't like it in there. She doesn't really like it, she

:08:06.:08:12.

likes it on the outside. The group is still so together. There is only

:08:13.:08:20.

one that swimmer not in doubt shop, the south African. Roux. But, the

:08:20.:08:25.

rest of the field, are within, you would say, 20 seconds of each other.

:08:25.:08:31.

After nearly one hour and 10 minutes. So, a very tight field. It

:08:31.:08:38.

will favour the fast finishers. Interestingly, open water swimmers

:08:38.:08:47.

do work on the big kick. Can you create a momentum to catch people

:08:47.:08:57.
:08:57.:09:06.

out, in the last 500m. The Czechoslovakia and -- summer her.

:09:06.:09:16.
:09:16.:09:34.

very popular indeed. Keri-Anne Payne of Great Britain, still in

:09:34.:09:39.

that leading five. This is not normally how she swims it, she

:09:39.:09:48.

likes to be at the front, driving the pace, to have everybody break,

:09:48.:09:55.

leaving only a few in the leading group. She looks fairly comfortable

:09:55.:10:01.

at the moment. But, a different way of doing it. Probably 50 minutes to

:10:02.:10:11.
:10:12.:10:17.

go in this Olympic women's 10,000 I have banished to persuade some of

:10:17.:10:22.

Keri-Anne's team-mate to join me. How beautiful London looks. The two

:10:22.:10:26.

spectacular, everything about every single venue we have seen has been

:10:26.:10:34.

fantastic. We were on the London Eye, and saw the beach volleyball.

:10:34.:10:38.

Everyone can see how beautiful London is. We this upsetting in

:10:38.:10:43.

Hyde Park. It is perfect for open water swimming. You can see the

:10:43.:10:48.

crowds enjoying this fantastic event. It shows you how green

:10:48.:10:54.

London is when you look around this park. It is fantastic. Keri-Anne is

:10:54.:10:59.

doing a great swimmer, hopefully she can get onto the podium.

:10:59.:11:03.

both came into this Olympic Games saying you were ready to retire.

:11:03.:11:09.

Have you both changed your mind? am going to take a big break, but

:11:09.:11:15.

this whole experience, the way the British crowd got behind us. It has

:11:15.:11:21.

made me reconsider quitting. Exactly the same. This was it for

:11:21.:11:27.

me. I was so happy to make the team in a home Olympics. Just walking

:11:27.:11:33.

out in front of 17,000 people. The noise hit you like a brick wall.

:11:33.:11:39.

You had to smile. I want to expense that again. We have the

:11:39.:11:45.

Commonwealth Games in Glasgow in two years. Again, the door is open.

:11:45.:11:48.

These Olympics have not just inspired spectators to take up

:11:48.:11:58.
:11:58.:12:06.

sport, but have inspired the I have had 6 million tweets! I know

:12:06.:12:15.

from the smog sound of your voice that you have identified that bird

:12:15.:12:25.
:12:25.:12:25.

correctly as a coot. Thank you, to Stanley, for taking the bird-

:12:25.:12:35.
:12:35.:12:39.

watching as a child. It has a white bill, a coot. A more hen has read

:12:39.:12:49.
:12:49.:12:53.

on it speak -- a moorhen has red on its beak. For Anderson, taking a

:12:53.:13:00.

drink. The Argentinian us, now -- swimmer

:13:00.:13:10.
:13:10.:13:28.

cafe. -- pontoon. Where the soaring club is based, started in 1930. --

:13:28.:13:36.

the swimming club. There is a Christmas Day race. It is called,

:13:37.:13:46.
:13:47.:14:11.

buoy. I think she was trying to turn around. They have been

:14:11.:14:17.

swimming in this serpentine for about 150 years. A beautiful

:14:17.:14:27.
:14:27.:14:59.

clubhouse. Started in 1864. Turkey to visit his love, and round.

:14:59.:15:08.

That was the original club. They used to have a uniform. The first

:15:08.:15:12.

few Olympics were held, the swimming events were held in open

:15:12.:15:22.
:15:22.:15:23.

water because there were no a nice, calm piece of the sea in

:15:23.:15:28.

Greece. They had shocking weather and ended up having 12 ft waves. It

:15:28.:15:36.

was ridiculous. The water was freezing. How cold was it?

:15:36.:15:44.

degrees. It is about 19 to 20 now. No and there is the bridge that

:15:44.:15:53.

separates the Serpentine in long water Kensington Gardens.

:15:53.:16:03.
:16:03.:16:16.

bridge was built by John Rennie. When? In the 1820s. A lot of

:16:16.:16:21.

spectators are on the bridge. is the bridge and that is Eva

:16:21.:16:28.

Risztov leading a game. She keeps making these moves. As long as she

:16:28.:16:33.

allows them to keep with her, she were used up more energy than she

:16:33.:16:40.

needs to. They are starting to string out. Look at the pack. It is

:16:40.:16:45.

probably only three deep at best now. He is in there? Hayley

:16:45.:16:49.

Anderson has been very well placed all the way through. She is

:16:49.:16:56.

tracking the leaders. I think she will use the strategy from the

:16:56.:17:06.
:17:06.:17:17.

pace is starting to tell on a number of the swimmers. You cannot

:17:17.:17:22.

swim this length of raised without it wearing you down a little bit.

:17:22.:17:30.

They are picking up the pace, but more they are holding the pace.

:17:30.:17:36.

Keri-Anne said it is like a war of attrition. The tactic is to get out,

:17:36.:17:40.

break the field so they are as few swimmers in the sprints at the end

:17:40.:17:46.

as possible. You don't want any fast swimming pool swimmers at the

:17:46.:17:51.

end any you, unless here you are one of them. Eva Risztov has a good

:17:51.:18:01.
:18:01.:18:02.

sprinter. She used to swim the 400 and 800 in the pool. 16th in the

:18:02.:18:08.

world at the Olympics. Hayley Anderson was third in the American

:18:08.:18:17.

trials. It was clearly focusing on this particular race, the open

:18:17.:18:27.
:18:27.:18:32.

water swim. Somebody taking gel? Unless she still has it in her hand,

:18:32.:18:39.

she has thrown it. She obviously couldn't get the top of it and

:18:39.:18:45.

thought it would take too much effort. They usually have two or

:18:45.:18:54.

three out there. We will get a split time in a second. Eva Risztov

:18:54.:19:02.

leading. Hayley Anderson maybe of the USA just about in second place.

:19:02.:19:12.

It is not particularly easy to tell. Keri-Anne is in there, but in the

:19:12.:19:18.

pack. It is not her usual place. She is usually in clear water and

:19:18.:19:28.
:19:28.:19:36.

It is OK, but it is right in the pack we did not expect her to be in.

:19:36.:19:43.

Two laps to go. It is a bit worrying for me. Nishi is obviously

:19:43.:19:46.

finding this pace difficult, she would normally be at the front of

:19:46.:19:53.

it. Really, the hope is that she can get to be what will be a

:19:53.:20:01.

smaller break out group, as it gets to maybe the last lap. I think

:20:01.:20:05.

Keri-Anne would like to be in the first three or four. I imagine they

:20:05.:20:11.

would break out but there are some strong swimmers. If you have Hayley

:20:11.:20:20.

Anderson in there, Eva Risztov, they have a very good turn of speed

:20:20.:20:30.
:20:30.:20:41.

will stop Melissa Gorman is still Risztov is still pushing the pace.

:20:41.:20:49.

Keri-Anne is down to the back right, going through your shot. What have

:20:49.:20:56.

we got in the picture. Jessica Roux is stopping. Maybe having a

:20:56.:21:01.

conversation about it whether she can carry on. She has been at the

:21:01.:21:07.

back of the field by a good minute, she has been struggling. Not sure

:21:07.:21:16.

if she will carry on. She hasn't actually come into view at the

:21:16.:21:26.
:21:26.:21:28.

moment. Still at the front, Eva Risztov. Keri-Anne is still OK, she

:21:28.:21:38.
:21:38.:21:39.

is still in there. Eva Risztov of hungry, she looks comfortable.

:21:39.:21:45.

Martina Grimaldi is in there, Hayley Anderson is in there. Angela

:21:45.:21:55.
:21:55.:21:57.

Maurer, very good finishers. That is the pack, the three following.

:21:57.:22:03.

That was a good example, Martina Grimaldi just ahead. The other two

:22:04.:22:08.

in their Super tight. Melissa Gorman has the green strap on her

:22:08.:22:15.

goggles. Keri-Anne is there with Melissa Gorman, so she is in a good

:22:15.:22:23.

position. No. 19, Natalia Charlos of Poland having a great swim. Just

:22:23.:22:29.

off the pace, if she can get back on... And she has got out, Jessica

:22:29.:22:39.
:22:39.:22:39.

Roux from South Africa, it is sad. Probably about a quarter of the

:22:39.:22:46.

race still to go. A rescue going on at the moment. Jessica Roux being

:22:46.:22:52.

taken out, under a bit of distress. The actual race itself, and that

:22:52.:22:56.

was the South African coach. Eva Risztov looking comfortable. There

:22:57.:23:02.

is still about another 40 minutes to go to. Still a decent time to go,

:23:02.:23:09.

but tactics will be different. What are you thinking David Davis?

:23:10.:23:14.

Eva Risztov has and made a decisive break. She is feeling strong so

:23:14.:23:19.

that she has decided to go to the front. I don't think it is a

:23:19.:23:24.

decisive break, there is still a long way to go. Keri-Anne is in 5th,

:23:24.:23:31.

six, and there is no need to panic. I think if they stay in this

:23:31.:23:36.

capacity at the moment, it will come down to a sprint finish. Eva

:23:36.:23:41.

Risztov is a good 400m runner, Keri-Anne will need her finishing

:23:41.:23:48.

skills at the end. She just has to stick in there, stick to her rhythm.

:23:48.:23:53.

I am sure the next two laps will start heating up. When would you

:23:53.:23:59.

think they should make a move? How many minutes from the end do they

:23:59.:24:04.

start to try and break it? In the men's race, you normally see a fat

:24:04.:24:09.

start, getting into position. The winner will always be in the top

:24:09.:24:18.

six. The last lap, things will change. The last 1,200 metres will

:24:18.:24:23.

be fought to the floor, really going for it, fast swimming and who

:24:23.:24:28.

is the strongest at the end. The final turn of each lap is where we

:24:28.:24:32.

have seen the most incidents, yellow-card, people swimming over

:24:32.:24:38.

other people. People coming out of the turn in the wrong life. That is

:24:38.:24:43.

close to the finish line, so the last turn, people will want to be

:24:43.:24:48.

at the front and if you are not, it will be difficult to get there. So

:24:48.:24:52.

woefully, before the final turn, Keri-Anne will have a clear run

:24:52.:25:02.
:25:02.:25:04.

into the final finish. There is Marianna Lymperta from Greece,

:25:05.:25:13.

having a good look to where she is going. I think it is still Eva

:25:13.:25:20.

Risztov leading. This pack is so tight. John Pechanova from the

:25:20.:25:30.
:25:30.:25:30.

Czech Republic. Also going well and continuing well is Yumi Kida from

:25:30.:25:40.

Japan. It looks like Eva Risztov is starting to put the hammer down.

:25:40.:25:45.

She didn't qualify from the World Championships. The top 10 from the

:25:45.:25:49.

World Championships in Shanghai qualified automatically for this

:25:49.:25:53.

Olympic race. She was disqualified there so she had to go to Portugal

:25:53.:26:03.
:26:03.:26:04.

to qualify. I think she came second in Portugal? She did, Hayley

:26:04.:26:10.

Anderson won it. Be seen to always come, the winner from the top five

:26:10.:26:17.

or six. For Keri-Anne to still be in the top six, I suggest it is the

:26:17.:26:27.
:26:27.:26:29.

grid before the orange cap. I think that it might be Marianna Lymperta

:26:29.:26:39.
:26:39.:26:48.

at the back. Also, Martina Grimaldi of Italy, European champion in the

:26:48.:26:58.
:26:58.:27:01.

10,000m open water. Marianna Lymperta got the bronze. Marianna

:27:01.:27:11.
:27:11.:27:13.

Lymperta was the one who could cope with the temperature, 14 degrees.

:27:13.:27:18.

That is the one Keri-Anne did not swim in. Of all the people in the

:27:18.:27:28.
:27:28.:27:34.

pack, apart from Marianna Lymperta who has fallen off, Hayley Anderson,

:27:35.:27:40.

they are all in there. Eva Risztov, going to her left and then her

:27:40.:27:46.

right. We had a chat about doing bilateral breathing, wants to the

:27:46.:27:54.

left and one to the right. She is doing two to the left. And then

:27:54.:28:00.

bilateral over to her right. Every single stroke gives you a little

:28:00.:28:06.

bit more her. All three of them are breathing to boats sides. Keri-Anne

:28:06.:28:10.

going through the shot. She is keeping pace with Hayley Anderson,

:28:10.:28:20.
:28:20.:28:25.

number 13. Melissa Gorman is slipping back a bit. That is the

:28:25.:28:33.

South African getting out, just keeping how warm. That is Poliana

:28:33.:28:40.

Okimoto of Brazil. Talking about the test events last year, she got

:28:41.:28:46.

a bronze. I don't think she was in good shape mentally coming into

:28:46.:28:51.

this. Someone has gone way off in the middle of the pack. Very

:28:51.:29:01.

strange indeed. Five swimmers at the top of your picture, Martina

:29:01.:29:07.

Grimaldi. Hayley Anderson as well in the second pack. Then right next

:29:07.:29:14.

to each other, Keri-Anne Payne in the blue cap. Keri-Anne is tracking

:29:14.:29:21.

the feat of the swimmer in front of her. That will give her more

:29:21.:29:24.

efficiency and the work Eva Risztov is doing at the front is quite

:29:24.:29:34.
:29:34.:29:47.

considerable. There is David Cameron. David Carey, and Keri-Anne

:29:47.:29:56.

Payne are getting married on 15th September. Not long to go. What a

:29:56.:30:06.
:30:06.:30:08.

great swimmer David Carey had on the free -- 400m freestyle. We have

:30:08.:30:16.

150, maybe 200m to the next feeding station. About half-an-hour left.

:30:16.:30:26.
:30:26.:30:37.

Three-quarters of the race gone. you are very close, it is not a

:30:37.:30:43.

great place to be, but there is some good drafting. It is a very

:30:43.:30:46.

interesting, this field has been like this for a couple of minutes,

:30:46.:30:53.

they seemed content to stay in this place, that leading group. The

:30:53.:31:02.

crowds are outstanding. To the right, the shot of the cafe. The

:31:02.:31:12.
:31:12.:31:34.

contingent, the Hungarian flags, waving wildly. As a very large

:31:34.:31:44.

heron flies through the finishing line, the swimmers have 50m to go

:31:44.:31:52.

to the feeding station. David, tactics coming in here? It will be

:31:52.:31:57.

interesting to see if Keri-Anne stops. This is why you need to get

:31:57.:32:03.

the energy. For that difficult final lap. Before the race starts,

:32:03.:32:08.

the people who have been assigned to go on to the feeding station

:32:08.:32:17.

have to organise who will go where. Today, we have Russell Perry. He

:32:17.:32:25.

likes to get onto the end of the pontoon, heat is in a red shirt.

:32:25.:32:31.

The best position. You don't have to worry about stopping, you can

:32:31.:32:38.

get your drink or gel, and move quickly. Mark always makes a

:32:38.:32:44.

conscious effort to get there. I have not seen if Keri-Anne has gone

:32:44.:32:54.
:32:54.:32:57.

in, on this flap. It didn't look like she did come in. He has done a

:32:57.:33:06.

super job with open water scoring - - swimming, in Britain. David, one

:33:06.:33:11.

of the few in the world who has made a success at pool serene and

:33:11.:33:15.

open water swimming. Stepping up, in Beijing, very nearly won that

:33:15.:33:21.

race, a silver medal. Unfortunately right at the end, went slightly off

:33:21.:33:28.

course. I'm sure he won't mind me saying so, he doesn't need

:33:28.:33:35.

reminding. Very close indeed, a great race. Britain's best male

:33:35.:33:41.

open water swimmer. And, we're watching Britain's best ever female

:33:41.:33:48.

open water summer, the world champion from 2011 and 2009. She is

:33:48.:33:56.

still in a decent position, in 4th or 5th. There is a gap opening.

:33:57.:34:00.

Keri-Anne is saying that leading group, a useful place to be. There

:34:00.:34:07.

are five of them. I wouldn't be surprised if that breakaway keeps

:34:07.:34:16.

on going for the rest of the race. If that five of can become four,

:34:16.:34:22.

and then three, obviously in the sprint you would like to win it,

:34:22.:34:32.

but that is a top tick -- a tactic Keri-Anne would like to aim for.

:34:32.:34:42.
:34:42.:34:44.

Risztov of Hungary has gone very hard indeed. The crowd is wonderful,

:34:44.:34:52.

it is like a fish bowl. It is very accessible for everyone to see

:34:52.:35:00.

every part of the sport. A narrow lake. About five deep, as we saw

:35:00.:35:10.
:35:10.:35:12.

for the triathlon. That is Lymperta of Greece, she pours it in. Not the

:35:12.:35:22.
:35:22.:35:24.

most graceful but it seems to work. Those little plastic cups. That is

:35:24.:35:32.

nonsense, like a bad night at a nightclub. Remind me not to go up

:35:32.:35:42.
:35:42.:35:46.

with you! That is not easy. Why on earth they don't have a squeezy

:35:46.:35:54.

bottle. Normally like clockwork in Switzerland. Very strange indeed.

:35:54.:36:03.

It is stringing out. This is getting quite significant. There is

:36:03.:36:08.

a significant break between the first and second group. Some

:36:09.:36:16.

swimmers suffering from the pace. At the top, five summers macro,

:36:16.:36:25.

Keri-Anne is in that. Risztov has done all of the work. -- five

:36:25.:36:35.
:36:35.:36:40.

Anne Payne is in that group of five or six. It will be interesting to

:36:40.:36:50.
:36:50.:36:55.

Just discussing whether you have ever done this kind of swimming?

:36:55.:36:59.

have done a mile, but being a two hundred metres specialist, that was

:37:00.:37:04.

enough for me. Keri-Anne is doing great, we are coming into the final

:37:05.:37:11.

lap, it is exciting. I am impressed with the outfit! The full support

:37:11.:37:21.
:37:21.:37:22.

kit. We are so excited to be here, cheering on Keri-Anne. We are

:37:23.:37:27.

excited she is in the final lap, we are all cheering for her. How tough

:37:27.:37:34.

is it, watching a race of this length develop? None of us can

:37:34.:37:39.

imagine the tactics that go into this. Compared to what these guys

:37:39.:37:44.

are doing in the Serpentine today. So many different conditions have

:37:44.:37:51.

to consider. Tactical things to think about. A tough thing to do.

:37:51.:37:56.

Getting it right, with taking on food and liquid. You see some of

:37:56.:38:01.

the athletes stopping, it costs valuable seconds. A lot of tactics

:38:01.:38:07.

involved. Do stop or do you not? They are coming into the last lap

:38:07.:38:17.
:38:17.:38:24.

now. And your tactics are to shout course, they need to come over a

:38:24.:38:31.

little to the left. Risztov of Hungary is still leading. She has

:38:31.:38:38.

worked very hard indeed. 15 metres to go, to the final lap time that

:38:38.:38:48.
:38:48.:38:48.

we will get. So we can see closer to us the finishing area. They will

:38:48.:38:58.

go under that timing pad. Anderson is third. In 4th, it looks like

:38:58.:39:05.

Maurer. Keri-Anne Payne is just in 5th at the moment. Is there a break

:39:05.:39:09.

going on again? Risztov and Grimaldi started to make a break

:39:09.:39:15.

again. This is starting to look a bit ominous. 1,600 metres to go.

:39:15.:39:21.

Pretty much one mile to go. It looks like a little break away.

:39:21.:39:31.
:39:31.:39:35.

are right, Andy. Keri-Anne isn't in the group of three. -- is in the

:39:35.:39:44.

group of three. As they came past, there was a

:39:44.:39:49.

noticeable increase in at the stroke rate. They thought, if we

:39:49.:39:57.

break them now, we are in with the medals. Saying the arch, for the

:39:57.:40:04.

final lap, was a massive mental boost. Not long to go now. Paul

:40:04.:40:09.

Keri-Anne has to do is to stick with them. It will be really

:40:09.:40:15.

difficult. Do not get dropped by the front two. It is the worst

:40:15.:40:21.

feeling in the world when you lose that front pack. Thanks, David. It

:40:21.:40:25.

looks like they are working hard to get back in touch. Keri-Anne Payne,

:40:25.:40:34.

in the centre of those three in the chasing group. Risztov, Grimaldi.

:40:34.:40:39.

Keri-Anne cannot see three, in the middle. She doesn't like being

:40:39.:40:49.

stuck in the middle. That is the back marker. Three, chasing those

:40:49.:40:55.

two leaders, Keri-Anne it in the centre. Risztov has been

:40:55.:41:01.

thereabouts for the whole race. Just behind her, that is Grimaldi.

:41:01.:41:11.

She has moved through the field. She started slowly, but has paced

:41:11.:41:20.

it -- paced it. I think those three will hopefully

:41:20.:41:25.

make a gap. One of them will have to make an effort to bridge that

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

gap. If not, it will be difficult. What you don't want it is a gold

:41:35.:41:43.

and silver medal race, then three people racing for bronze medal. It

:41:44.:41:49.

looks like Keri-Anne it is going to Anderson's feet. It looks like the

:41:50.:41:59.

Gap is starting to narrow. Anderson, only 20, the American, the only

:41:59.:42:07.

American qualifier. Now they are strung out, Anderson has caught up

:42:07.:42:13.

on to the feet of Grimaldi. Maurer is third, she has caught up. A lot

:42:13.:42:18.

of work still to go, well over 1,000m to go. He that was

:42:18.:42:23.

significant, Maurer looking and realising she did not want that

:42:23.:42:30.

pair to get away from her. She is trying to get back on to the feet.

:42:31.:42:40.
:42:41.:42:42.

Keri-Anne is struggling to the far left of the shot. This is not a

:42:42.:42:52.
:42:52.:42:57.

turn. Just a line marker. That is Pechanova. Gorman closer to us.

:42:57.:43:02.

Pechanova of the Czech Republic, it looks like they've had been dropped,

:43:02.:43:12.
:43:12.:43:14.

in the chasing pack. -- they've been dropped.

:43:14.:43:17.

A gruelling race, this is only the second hand this event has been

:43:17.:43:25.

held at the Olympic Games. In Beijing, we did very well, silver

:43:25.:43:35.
:43:35.:43:35.

for Keri-Anne Payne. And bronze for Cassie Patten. All medals won by

:43:35.:43:45.

European countries. It looks like Maurer, Germany, in that pack with

:43:45.:43:50.

Keri-Anne. They all seem to be going that way. Anderson, as you

:43:50.:43:56.

mentioned, still dangerous. They are stringing out a little bit more.

:43:56.:44:03.

Risztov in front. Grimaldi and Maurer together. Anderson and Keri-

:44:03.:44:11.

Anne Payne behind. You have to give credit to this swimmer, Risztov.

:44:11.:44:16.

She has been on the front of this group all the way, setting the pace.

:44:16.:44:20.

She has a strong finish. She certainly deserves a medal, the way

:44:20.:44:30.
:44:30.:44:47.

she is swimming. Hard to see too the group of five. A little bit

:44:47.:44:57.
:44:57.:45:19.

worrying. They are in a bit of a go. They cannot go the wrong side

:45:19.:45:29.
:45:29.:45:34.

of this buoy. 50 seconds to the chasing pack. Eva Risztov still

:45:35.:45:40.

looking good. Quite a few of the chasing pack are very good swimming

:45:40.:45:50.
:45:50.:45:50.

pool swimmers. It does look very smooth indeed. Eva Risztov is a

:45:51.:45:55.

very good swimming-pools swimmer. 400 freestyle in the European

:45:55.:46:01.

Championships this year, she is probably one of the better

:46:01.:46:07.

sprinters. Keri-Anne Payne is an slow either. You have Angela Maurer

:46:07.:46:14.

who is a slow one. She will want to be further ahead. She got the world

:46:14.:46:22.

Championship bronze and silver in the 25 kilometres. She won't enjoy

:46:22.:46:29.

the sprints as much as the rest. Martina Grimaldi is they distance

:46:29.:46:35.

summer. So those two not as comfortable with sprint. It is Ceri

:46:35.:46:41.

and Anderson and Eva Risztov are the ones who sprint. Eva Risztov

:46:41.:46:50.

has gone out. She probably has about 1350 metres to go. Keri-Anne

:46:50.:46:56.

Payne in the second group chasing. David, it looks as if Eva Risztov

:46:56.:47:04.

has gone early, has she gone too early? It is going to be too much

:47:04.:47:09.

to get back. She has been looking good right through the race and

:47:09.:47:15.

still felt she could have this extra speed. Their legs are kicking

:47:15.:47:20.

now, their arms are turning over quicker. I bet they are really

:47:20.:47:26.

hurting. My hate this feeling, you have been working so hard for

:47:26.:47:30.

nearly two hours and you still have this spring's at the end. The lead

:47:30.:47:36.

is about three metres. Keri-Anne is still working hard and hanging on

:47:36.:47:41.

and hopefully she can find something at the end. Eva Risztov

:47:41.:47:46.

is looking good. It is dangerous, the pack behind are dropped. They

:47:46.:47:52.

are quite a way behind. The medals will go to the five swimmers at the

:47:52.:47:56.

front and that has been the case for the last 20 minutes. Eva

:47:56.:48:04.

Risztov in the front. Keri-Anne Payne in the blue cap, easy to spot.

:48:04.:48:14.
:48:14.:48:16.

Eva Risztov is more determined and powerful. That is not Eva Risztov.

:48:16.:48:26.

Eva Risztov is breathing up bilaterally. There are number of

:48:26.:48:36.
:48:36.:48:36.

sprinters in that group. I think Keri-Anne will hear the crowd

:48:36.:48:46.
:48:46.:48:57.

screaming from the side of the leg. all the way round. It is what Keri-

:48:57.:49:02.

Anne's plan was going to be. I doubt and they will take any fluids

:49:02.:49:08.

on at the feeding station there. Eva Risztov has gone off. In the

:49:08.:49:18.
:49:18.:49:19.

chasing group is Keri-Anne Payne. Hayley Anderson has a very good

:49:19.:49:24.

sprinter. Angela Maurer maybe is the weakest sprinter out of them.

:49:24.:49:30.

They are going past one of the biggest crime groups. They are 10

:49:30.:49:40.

to 15 deeps in those places. It is fantastic to see the support Keri-

:49:40.:49:46.

Anne has got. They need every cheer from every person in the group.

:49:46.:49:52.

Mick you are at home watching on TV, we need you shouting as well. I

:49:52.:49:56.

can't imagine she is blowing the pacing on this. It is something you

:49:56.:50:06.

are worth of. She won't have walked it too much. A second per 100 is

:50:06.:50:15.

still quite a long way. They can only see a to their elbow. They

:50:15.:50:21.

will have to look a but the water to see that Eva Risztov has got

:50:21.:50:28.

about, I don't know, it is shorter, are they catching her up? He looks

:50:28.:50:38.
:50:38.:50:40.

like Angela Maurer and Martina Grimaldi, Keri-Anne Payne still

:50:40.:50:45.

hanging in with Hayley Anderson of the USA. This is going to be so

:50:45.:50:52.

hard. Eva Risztov seems to be holding the break, if not extending

:50:53.:50:59.

it. Nku Carey Anderson is trying to move right and increase her pace.

:50:59.:51:09.
:51:09.:51:22.

She is at the back right of those crowd are shouting across the

:51:22.:51:32.
:51:32.:51:35.

Serpentine. It is amazing. They are about 15 to 20 metres away, no

:51:35.:51:41.

feeding at this point. Just coaches urging them on, waving and

:51:41.:51:51.

screaming. Trying to get that last bit of energy from the swimmers.

:51:51.:51:55.

The Serpentine clubhouse is beautiful. Eva Risztov is still

:51:55.:52:02.

leading and it is still about seven to eight metres now. The chasing

:52:02.:52:12.
:52:12.:52:13.

pack are coming back, so there is the Serpentine Swimming Club. The

:52:13.:52:23.
:52:23.:52:37.

chasing pack of Angela Maurer and is. They are still behind. Eva

:52:37.:52:42.

Risztov is going to lead and it will be difficult to break down.

:52:42.:52:52.
:52:52.:53:02.

Then they are trying, as they would Anderson, left, Keri-Anne Payne

:53:02.:53:12.
:53:12.:53:17.

behind her. Then you have Martina Grimaldi. Eva Risztov is going away.

:53:18.:53:27.

But the chasing pack are starting to go. I think that is Martina

:53:27.:53:32.

Grimaldi on the left of those two chasing. Keri-Anne Payne is hanging

:53:32.:53:42.
:53:42.:53:49.

in. Those on the leaders. Stay on the leading pack for goodness sake!

:53:49.:53:54.

I think Eva Risztov made a move and the pack were deciding there was

:53:54.:53:59.

some energy left. If there is any energy left to go, now is the time

:53:59.:54:06.

for its. You have Eva Risztov and somebody has made a break. Get your

:54:06.:54:14.

binoculars out. We are behind the tree, they are not those types of

:54:14.:54:22.

binoculars! If Eva Risztov has given everything she had, it will

:54:22.:54:32.
:54:32.:54:34.

be difficult to hold off the sprint at the end. Coming round now. David

:54:34.:54:40.

Davis, not too long to go, maybe six or seven minutes? Is Eva

:54:40.:54:46.

Risztov being caught? She is being closed down. If they get round

:54:46.:54:51.

these in what order they are, they could be the final positions. It is

:54:51.:54:57.

so difficult to get past a swimmer once they are in front abuse. Keri-

:54:57.:55:01.

Anne made a move to go to the right of her to get past. It's utterly

:55:01.:55:05.

now she can get in the medal positions. She does have some work

:55:05.:55:10.

to do, but they are catching Eva Risztov. I wonder if she went too

:55:10.:55:17.

early? Angela Maurer of Germany, the 37-year-old, she is good but

:55:17.:55:23.

more of the distance when that. Martina Grimaldi of Italy, was some

:55:23.:55:27.

the Met -- silver-medallist at the World Championships. This is

:55:27.:55:36.

getting close. Keri-Anne still there. She is coming to the right.

:55:36.:55:46.
:55:46.:55:46.

She is in fourth place. Trying to get onto the feet. Eva Risztov is

:55:46.:55:52.

struggling with heavy arms. They are coming to the last. It has been

:55:52.:56:02.
:56:02.:56:02.

a very fast race. The last 500m, maximum? This is going to be very

:56:02.:56:09.

tight. I think maybe Eva Risztov has gone off a little bit too quick.

:56:09.:56:13.

Keri-Anne Payne in 4th at the moment. Come on Keri-Anne! You can

:56:13.:56:20.

see her in 4th position. She has a lot of work to do, she does have a

:56:20.:56:26.

good sprint. They are chasing Eva Risztov very hard. Still a little

:56:26.:56:31.

bit too far away for us to seek. And they really are working very

:56:31.:56:36.

hard. It looks like she has been caught. Eva Risztov looks like she

:56:36.:56:44.

will be caught. Keri-Anne is in 4th position. He is that? It is Hayley

:56:44.:56:52.

Anderson. My she has a great sprinter at the end. The American

:56:52.:56:56.

going what's happened to Rebecca Adlington so. I don't think Eva

:56:56.:57:04.

Risztov can hold this now. Coming into the final. That is to the

:57:04.:57:14.

finish, we are no early there. I think Keri-Anne is fighting for the

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

bronze. I think the gold medal has got away from her. With about 30

:57:26.:57:30.

metres to go, Eva Risztov in the black hat has led all the way, but

:57:30.:57:35.

it looks like Hayley Anderson Thom the USA will take it. It is really

:57:35.:57:45.
:57:45.:57:46.

close. Still, it looks like Keri- Anne Payne in 4th. But Eva Risztov,

:57:46.:57:52.

has led all the way. You have to touch this bought a bug the head.

:57:52.:57:59.

She gets the gold. The silver has gone to the USA. The bronze medal

:57:59.:58:07.

has gone to Martina Ramadi of Italy. Keri-Anne just behind in the fourth

:58:07.:58:13.

positions. -- Martina Grimaldi. It is so close, but the gold medal and

:58:13.:58:18.

deservedly, to Eva Risztov of Hungary. Did all the work. She is

:58:18.:58:25.

out already. How did she make all that effort and go and so quickly?

:58:25.:58:31.

Leading all of the way. I am amazed she can walk, Andrew. Keri-Anne

:58:31.:58:39.

just out of the medals in fourth place. Anderson, the young American,

:58:39.:58:49.
:58:49.:59:03.

then Martina Grimaldi. She did swimmers a part. We have had

:59:03.:59:10.

problems all the way through. What a race it was. Eva Risztov went

:59:10.:59:17.

early, then she was caught in the last few were hundred metres. I

:59:17.:59:20.

thought Hayley Anderson, whose sister got a gold medal in the

:59:20.:59:27.

4x200 freestyle relay, in the pool, Anderson just got a silver. Silver

:59:27.:59:32.

to Anderson of the USA. The bronze has gone to Martina Grimaldi of

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

Italy, with Keri-Anne Payne of The first thing to say is what a

:59:43.:59:48.

swim from Eva Risztov. The Hungarian looking as if she had

:59:48.:59:54.

started to completely lose her way? But didn't she come back again?

:59:54.:00:00.

This is the Olympics, she wanted it so bad. We thought she had made the

:00:00.:00:04.

break too early. But she did deserve to win. She did work very

:00:04.:00:09.

hard, and to pick it up again when everyone was fighting behind her.

:00:09.:00:14.

Keri-Anne Payne has put everything into that and come away without a

:00:14.:00:21.

medal is cruel. It is hard, I can see why you don't do it anymore?

:00:21.:00:27.

is a tough sport, and Keri-Anne has worked very hard. Less than a

:00:27.:00:30.

seconds from the medal. She was coming back really strong at the

:00:31.:00:37.

end. I am sure she will speak to us now, but we cannot knock the effort.

:00:37.:00:42.

There are swimmers still coming in behind us. Spare a thought for them

:00:42.:00:46.

because it is about the honour of completing a 10 kilometre swim at

:00:46.:00:56.
:00:56.:01:02.

This is the elite end of the support -- sport. Fantastic.

:01:02.:01:12.
:01:12.:01:16.

Amazing shops -- shots. Matthew Pinsent was saying, with rowing,

:01:16.:01:25.

you're hearing goes, and your vision, because your body decides

:01:25.:01:32.

only your essential parts keep you going. When you get to those

:01:32.:01:36.

closing stages and you feel that bad, something instinctive takes

:01:36.:01:44.

over. Risztov was giving everything to be Olympic champion. One last

:01:44.:01:50.

effort. That is the toughest way, leading from the front, I don't

:01:50.:01:56.

think we will see that in the men's race tomorrow, there are more

:01:56.:02:02.

tactics involved. Leading in front is the hardest way to do it. That

:02:02.:02:12.

battle between Grimaldi and Risztov. Watching it here, and on TV, it is

:02:12.:02:20.

as if it is slow motion. Keri-Anne, are you all right?

:02:20.:02:26.

What a terrific effort. Thank you, it didn't go my way from the start.

:02:26.:02:33.

I tried to get back up to leading. But it shows that they played me at

:02:33.:02:39.

my own game. She did such a great job. The top 25 swimmers are here.

:02:39.:02:46.

To come force in thought our old is not too bad, and it was really

:02:46.:02:52.

close. Not quite what I wanted for all of the crowd. For all the

:02:52.:02:56.

people who have worked so hard to get me here. It was a terrific

:02:56.:03:02.

effort. How much were you hurting in the last lap? I was hurting most

:03:02.:03:11.

of the swim. Not initially. I have always said about open water that

:03:11.:03:16.

it is about making the right decision. I went in to feed. From

:03:16.:03:22.

then, I struggled to get back, probably working too hard for how I

:03:23.:03:27.

would like to take the pace. I didn't have enough at the end,

:03:27.:03:32.

unfortunately. I know you have 50 family members here, they are so

:03:32.:03:39.

proud you. These support has been fantastic. Thank you to everybody,

:03:40.:03:49.
:03:50.:03:51.

all of my coaches. In Stockport. Everybody. And of course my family

:03:51.:03:54.

and David, for all of their support, there wouldn't be here if it wasn't

:03:54.:04:04.
:04:04.:04:07.

for them. Is this it for open water has a ring? -- something? I don't

:04:07.:04:17.

know. We will see. Well done. David wants to say a word. That was so

:04:17.:04:27.
:04:27.:04:27.

hard watching, that last bit, depicted up. We'll all so proud you,

:04:27.:04:37.
:04:37.:04:37.

well done -- you picked it up. Keri-Anne, finishing 4th. She feels,

:04:37.:04:42.

more than anyone, she wanted to do this here, at home, in front of the

:04:42.:04:47.

home crowd, and because there were so many family members here. The

:04:47.:04:52.

good thing about family members is that they do understand that 4th is

:04:52.:04:57.

a great result. They know how hard she has trained. That is all you

:04:57.:05:04.

can do. I am sure she will feel emotional now, not getting what she

:05:04.:05:11.

wanted is frustrated. But, years down the line, if you know you have

:05:11.:05:16.

committed to anything. And she has had a fantastic career. Nobody can

:05:16.:05:21.

take that away from her. This was an amazing opportunity. That is

:05:21.:05:28.

sport, that is why we love it. I know she has given everything. I am

:05:28.:05:34.

sure she will be proud of what she has done. She is hugely popular

:05:34.:05:41.

within the swimming team, a gracious person, funny, warm, she

:05:41.:05:49.

loves to be involved in everybody else's sports. The very unselfish,

:05:49.:05:56.

always smiling. That has to be the hardest thing, to swim for two

:05:56.:06:01.

hours, to do an interview. She has conducted herself very well,

:06:01.:06:11.
:06:11.:06:16.

graciously. All of the swimmers coming past, they are trained.

:06:16.:06:22.

Especially today, the Sun would have been beating on their back.

:06:22.:06:28.

That dehydrates you. The physical effort that goes into it, it is the

:06:28.:06:35.

most difficult event I have ever done. She talked about missing and

:06:35.:06:43.

intended feed station Pickup? noticed that. Mark changed his

:06:43.:06:48.

shirt to really bright colours. She did miss him. Whether that played a

:06:48.:06:58.
:06:58.:07:00.

part, it is not for me to say. There are so many things that go on.

:07:00.:07:07.

Coming off the stage, this is risky and -- Risztov, looking incredibly

:07:07.:07:15.

emotional. I might take a gamble. Sorry, that is Lymperta, of Greece,

:07:15.:07:21.

who I think suffered an awful lot out there. You can see the physical

:07:21.:07:31.
:07:31.:07:34.

nature of this sport, it is crawl - - cruel.

:07:34.:07:39.

Tomorrow, for the men, Dan Fogg, what chances should be hoped for,

:07:39.:07:49.

from him? Myself and Dan Fogg went to Portugal, for training. We both

:07:49.:07:53.

really did not enjoy it. Tomorrow, this is what he wants to be

:07:53.:08:00.

involved in, a nice, flat lake. He is in good form. I think he will

:08:00.:08:08.

revel in this and have a good race. Thank you. I don't know whether we

:08:08.:08:16.

have missed Risztov. What a finish that was. We have

:08:16.:08:21.

come outside. You can see how many people are in the Olympic Park.

:08:21.:08:31.

There are huge screens. Everybody was crude, screaming for Keri-Anne.

:08:31.:08:38.

-- everybody was glued. That was a monumental effort.

:08:38.:08:45.

It was unbelievable. In terms of the planning of these Games, this

:08:45.:08:51.

was an inspired choice for anyone to come here. To watch it, at home,

:08:51.:08:55.

or in person, it makes you really appreciate what they go through, to

:08:55.:09:03.

watch every single minute of it. From the first defeat station, the

:09:03.:09:07.

buoys, trying to keep a clear head when your body is screaming in pain,

:09:07.:09:15.

when you cannot see anything, with its swimmers around you. I saw it

:09:15.:09:18.

for the first time in Beijing, at seeing David come out of the water

:09:18.:09:23.

and thinking, he is going to collapse.

:09:23.:09:33.

The men will be out tomorrow. We have lost the pictures. There was

:09:33.:09:40.

so much hope for Keri-Anne. But, 4th, a monumental effort after one

:09:40.:09:50.
:09:50.:09:51.

hour and 57 minutes of continual swimming.

:09:51.:09:58.

We saw when lead 10 kilometre or swim, the athletes taking nutrition.

:09:58.:10:04.

Let us move on to the highlight some of what has been going on

:10:04.:10:14.
:10:14.:10:29.

around the Olympic Park over the Nicola Adams points proudly to the

:10:29.:10:33.

Lion. Katie Taylor gives thanks for

:10:33.:10:43.

having secured a place in the gold medal bout.

:10:43.:10:53.
:10:53.:10:54.

It has gone! Oh dear.

:10:54.:11:04.
:11:04.:11:05.

It is Allyson Felix all the way. Gold medal for Merritt.

:11:05.:11:13.

Blake almost stops. Usain Bolt wins it.

:11:13.:11:20.

What is going to happen in that 200m final? The Olympic stadium

:11:20.:11:27.

behind us is waiting in -- for that man. It is not always those for a

:11:27.:11:37.
:11:37.:11:50.

first over the line that create Eric had never seen a swimming pool

:11:50.:11:55.

this bit. But suddenly, he had a chance to win a heat. These two

:11:55.:11:59.

were disqualified for false starting and or Eric had to do now

:11:59.:12:06.

was to complete two lense of freestyle, that would be five

:12:06.:12:10.

lengths of the swimming pool in the hotel where he had learnt to swim

:12:10.:12:20.
:12:20.:12:32.

In truth, this would not be a record breaking time. The winning

:12:32.:12:37.

time would be one minute faster than this. But perhaps, this will

:12:37.:12:47.
:12:47.:12:48.

go down in a Olympic folklore. Going down, by staying afloat, just.

:12:48.:12:58.
:12:58.:12:58.

An absolute legend. There are so many characters and stories which

:12:58.:13:06.

have come out of London 2012, with just four days to go. If you want

:13:06.:13:11.

to look on BBC Three, you can see the bronze-medal match of the

:13:11.:13:16.

women's football. Canada, first as France. Playing the bronze-medal

:13:16.:13:21.

match. Over on BBC One, there will be

:13:21.:13:27.

taekwondo at action, Jade Jones is going in her quarter-final match.

:13:27.:13:32.

She looked incredibly worried first thing this morning when she got

:13:32.:13:39.

into the arena. But she looked so graceful and elegant on the mat.

:13:39.:13:47.

Featuring the climax of the women's long distance swim. Will the crowds by the Serpentine be cheering home a British winner?
