Welcome once again to the Olympic Park. Plenty of action and exciting


sport to come but before we turn our attention to the Olympic


stadium on another night of track- and-field. We have a hand ball


coming up, and if you were with us yesterday you would have seen that


the men's quarter-finals went down to the final seconds, and we have a


women's semi-final in just a moment. But before that, let's look at the

Well, Norway, who two days ago in the quarter-final early in the


second half, seven goals down against Brazil, looked to be


heading out. But somehow, miraculously, they turned the game


around, in large part of the goalkeeper. Now they look in the


driving seat in the semi-final as we hit the midway point of the

not want to taste defeat again. Now they are resorting to long-range


efforts. But they really won't trouble Harold's son, she has eight

they have the energy to put on a late spurt to close this gap. Six


goals in it now. The shots are weak. It is difficult, it is their 7th


match and they play at this pace all of the time. Well, at a faster


pace than this, obviously. Their ball-handling skills are incredible.


That is how they beat European opposition who are not used to this


kind of play. It doesn't suit their defensive style. But the Norwegians


hit them early, took the lead and from then on, the Koreans have been


doing all the chasing. They closed to within one goal in the first


half, but they have not been able Their most experienced player, the

Four minutes remaining. Too many steps! The South Koreans stream

very unnecessary gesture. No harm Into the last two minutes and


Norway are just two minutes away from celebrating another Olympic

South Koreans heart. -- heart. They won four goals up in the early


stages and mostly because they defended hard. They took the ball


up on the second phase of attack before the South Koreans could get


organised in defence, they would hit them. Defenders would turn


around and find a Norwegian player bearing down on them already. That


constant pressure early on really forced the South Koreans to up the


tempo and basically trained She has scored 36 in the


competition until today. Only three today. We are into the last minute.


They are happy to hold back, the Norwegians. There's no point


pushing ahead, the game is over. South Korea will not gain revenge


for their defeat four years ago in 30 seconds to go and an attacking


foul. Beautifully done by heron! Drops the ball under the goalkeeper.


The bench is celebrating. A little bit of class, some showboating to


close off the semi-final. Seconds to go. To their credit, the South


No harm done. For free-throw needs to be taken. It will be the last


action of that game. The buzzer has gone. The Norwegian team will line


up in a defensive wall. I suspect no shock will be taken. That is it!


Norway are in the final of the London 2012 Olympics handball


competition. They have beaten South Korea 31-25. A team that was seven


goals down in the second half of their quarter-final and looked in


terrible trouble and suddenly they are in the final and they will play


either Montenegro or Spain. Well, sadness and dejection, I'm afraid,


for the South Koreans. With the injuries they had on the bench,


they did not have enough players to maintain momentum. That was the


only way they could overcome Norway. In the end, and always experience


told and they have won. In the first semi-final, Norway have


beaten South Korea 31-25. The celebrations will go on long into


the evening. Congratulations to Norway. I hope you've enjoyed the


game. We leave you with these Now we're going to take you back to


the ExCeL Arena. Amazing scenes this afternoon. First we saw Nicola


Adams make history by winning the first gold medal in women's boxing.


Then we were followed -- she was followed by Katie Taylor in the


lightweight final and there were thousands and thousands of Irish


fans in the ExCeL Arena to cheer her on. She was the overwhelming


favourite and she won it. She is about to receive her gold medal and


there will be massive cheers. Her dad is her trainer, he was a former


champion boxer himself. Let's hear What a magnificent, momentous


moment this is. We are witnessing sporting history as we observe the


Coronation of the first ever women's lightweight Olympic boxing


champion. In the history of this most demanding of all sports at the


Olympic Games. Katie Taylor of violent acts to her glittering


trophy collection by being crowned the women's 60 kg lightweight

Please stand for the national Ladies and gentlemen, the Olympic


medallists! Congratulations. What a way to celebrate. It is


unbelievable. A dream come true. Ever since I started boxing I


dreamt of becoming an Olympic champion, and now I am here as an


Olympic champion. It is the best day of my life. What about this


celebration? It is like fighting at home. It is like being at home in


Dublin. I just want to thank everybody for coming out and


supporting. The support has been incredible. For the contest, he was


close, she was leading, what did you think as it was progressing?


just had to be composed because it was always going to be that kind of


fight. We have boxed before and it's always so tricky. She is a


fantastic oxer. I knew I had to be at my very, very best. I had to


stay relaxed about the whole fight. How long will the celebrations go


on in Ireland? A day, a week, a month? I just hope to have a great


time when I get home as well, so we will be many celebrations when I


get there. A wonderful achievement. Thank you so much. Many


celebrations around the XL arena and in Ireland, because Katie has

gold medal. The lady from Gloucestershire, the bronze

flowers. And how gracious and charming she has been. She has, and


she is a total joy and a wonderful ambassador for the sport. And so to

again? Charlotte Dujardin, her first Olympic Games, winning gold


She is certainly a lovely, bubbly young lady who will know exactly


what to say and what to do for all of those who have helped her to


that world-class performance. That lottery funding is now more


important than ever, and certainly the British equestrians have


delivered for all of that support they have had. What a moment. Well,


the Olympic champion stands aloft. We are going to stand aloft as well,


because we are going to sink, very proudly, the national anthem for


Great Britain -- we are going to sing. Please stand for the national


Apology for the loss of subtitles for 78 seconds


I am joined by the girls of the moment, Charlotte and Laura.


Charlotte, you beat the world No. 1, not to mention Laurenne next to you,


you smashed the Olympic record and you are now the individual champion.


It is unbelievable. I didn't think I'd be that emotional, but he gave


everything today and he actually felt tired, and I said that he was


tired and he went in there and gave me everything he had. He's just an


amazing horse. He is only 10, but he so special. You have only been


doing this less than two years at the top level. We only really


started in January last year, that was the first Grand Prix. I do not


know how we have done it. Now I have to Olympic gold medals.


Unbelievable. It did you choose the music? I did, with the composer,


Tom Hunter, and it is great fun. I love riding to that. I really


enjoyed it. Laura, congratulations on your bronze medal. You chose the


Lion King. When you heard that she had the dam Busters and the Big Ben


chimes, did you think the music would get some people going anyway?


Absolutely. I loved Charlotte's music. I thought it really showed


the expression that the horse has, and they did a great job today. The


music made me emotional. I thought it was awesome. I think we both


enjoy riding to music and to do it in front of that crowd is an unreal


feeling. Fantastic for your horse, 17 years old now. A completely


different story. He was a bit of a lunatic in his younger days and it


has taken him a long time to get to the point where he was able to ride


in the arena. In the last three championships, no, four


championships, he has meddled individually or in the team every


time, which is an incredible record for a 17-year-old horse to come and


do. To get a bronze, that made me very emotional. The atmosphere has


been electric the entire way through the games in Greenwich Park.


You have had to work a lot on your own psychology and the horses as


well. I had to make sure I could somehow try and make sure I could


keep him calm, because he can be quite high power and he does


respond to the atmosphere. That was difficult to deal with, but he was


awesome to ride and gave me everything he had and that is all


you you have been a call and calm through the games. You have never


dealt with sports psychologist, you just stay focused. On the special,


I did get a bit nervous because I watched Carl first, and that makes


me nervous but I had no time to chill out before I got on. So why


was actually a bit on edge for the special -- I was actually. But


today I wanted to have fun. It was going to be our last time and I


wanted to give everything and enjoy Well done to Charlotte and Laura.


What a successful games for the medals, and now it is 51, 24 gold


medals, 12 ahead of South Korea in Australia in 10th, a bit of a


surprise. Now we are moving on to hockey, and the great British women


went out in the semi-finals today, but today it is the men and they


will be playing later against the Netherlands. We will concentrate on


the afternoon match featuring Germany up against Australia, who


are ranked No. 1 and have been in dominant form in recent years.


Let's see what happened with Sean Turner can take the opportunity,


but in the follow-up it has been taken with great star -- Turner


couldn't take the opportunity. the tattooed man of the Australian


side, great strike into the dip, and it went in the perfect position.


We have seen a lot of corners going And eventually the goal has been


given and it is Turner who has scored. He has a shot to start with,


but he didn't panic. A scrappy goal, A real chance. Nothing wrong with


that one for Germany. That is the equaliser. So simple in the finish,


but it was caused by the Balkan being given away in the Australian


25 by the Australians, caused by That is a very nice goal from Wess.


Or a good routine. He shifted it just enough so Burger's post was


exposed, and that was poured through the eye of the needle. --


Yes! It is Florian flukes, and that surely has taken Germany to the


final. What a fantastic ball and a fantastic run. One end to the other


So, Germany have beaten Australia, and they are through to the final


and will face either Great Britain or the Netherlands and that will be


life at 8pm on BBC Three. If Great Britain win, it could be a repeat


of the final in 1988, and we all remember what happened when Sean


Kelly was one of the heroes. -- Sean Kerly. We are heading to Earls


Court for the volleyball. It is semi-finals in the women's event,


and we are featuring the US against South Korea. The American squad


have come through the group stages winning all five matches and have


only dropped two sets on route to the semis. South Korea are ranked


third in the world. We can join the match, and it is 2-0 in favour of

I've only seen him... If 10 out of 10 would get him really angry, he


has been 7.5. That was probably four. He doesn't need to jump up


and scream at players. He can get his point across quite articulately.


His players don't perform best when he is screaming and shouting at


them. He liked them to be nice and relaxed, although at the moment


they are looking a little bit too relaxed. A bit complacent?


quite possibly. Oh no! That is what they didn't need. It is the


technical time out. If they could have levelled, if those little


errors... Go get it. Unless you are thinking I'm going to split it,


that is a different scenario. That is leading to this, not over and


penetrating. Turn it and get over. We can do that. You are a monster,


right? The coach talking about the penetration of the block. He was


clearly saying that he doesn't want her right hand to be open. That


creates a gap between the blockers. It would probably go off behind the


court. He wants her hand tilted They are looking for success. You


join the two blockers together, interesting. Normally coaches have


a chat with the set-up because they are the playmaker. The express


intention to talk to both his middle blockers. Here's one of them.


Interestingly enough, the USA changed their blocking tactics.


They have brought, over to position It is a scramble. USA take the


point. No let up for Korea. You can see that from the expressions. This


has got to be cut most Cross-court, what a beauty! A great


angle. She was closed down, the blockers were there in force, but


she still found a gap cross-court. Such congestion around her and yet


she found the court. The only place she could hit was there. Brilliant,


absolutely brilliant. 16-17, they are back in it. America, if they


take their eye off the ball, they might be made to pay. There was a


touch. 16-18. More than happy to trade points, keep this gap, keep


it steady. Getting to the 20s, that is when the enormity of what is


facing Korea will hit home. America almost over the line. Best-of-five


set. Was that in? No, just out. Going for the ace. 17-18. That is


what Korea need. If they can't have the ace, just make sure America are


playing. That will do! Just what she wanted. I'm tempted did say she


played for that because she is so good! Wow! What a recovery. It has


It has gone out! She does play with a motion a lot of the time. She is


quite volatile and when it is working, it is wonderful, but if


she loses, it feels like the end of the world. You'll have to drag her


from the court, she will have collapsed in a heap. That is a good


sign of a winner. Absolutely and so far she has been. Off the block!


There was a good block, exactly what the coach asked for,


stretching that hands out and Well-directed. Pushed it away. The


outside of her right hand. Now she Put it down to an 80 -- mighty


effort by Korea, say it is taking the eye off the ball from America,

could win the match, Korea could Destiny Hooker. Heartbroken, they

taekwondo. She beat the world number one in the semi-final and


she will be going for gold at 10:15pm. Stay tuned for that.

him. Five gold medals will be decided in the Olympic Stadium
