Welcome back. We have plenty to look forward to hear over the next

:00:53.:00:57.

hour. We have coverage of the semi- finals of handball, I will be

:00:57.:01:03.

talking to the President of the IOC, Jacques Rogge, and before that, the

:01:03.:01:07.

headlines. There is more good news for Britain today.

:01:07.:01:14.

Britain's men and women 470 crews picked up the silver medals meaning

:01:14.:01:19.

the sailors will finish with a gold medal and four silvers.

:01:19.:01:23.

Britain's Luke Campbell will fight for gold after reaching the final

:01:23.:01:29.

of the bantamweight category. Anthony Ogogo got bronze earlier.

:01:29.:01:35.

Great Britain's women beat New Zealand 3-1 to win the bronze medal

:01:35.:01:39.

and pick up the nation's first hockey medal for 20 years.

:01:39.:01:42.

Lutalo Muhammad suffered a disappointing defeat in his

:01:42.:01:47.

taekwondo quarter-final but he does have a chance at bronze by the

:01:47.:01:57.
:01:57.:02:13.

repechage. It looks as though we have yet

:02:13.:02:18.

another exciting evening ahead of us. One more night of athletics

:02:18.:02:22.

before the stadium is prepared for the closing ceremony. When

:02:22.:02:26.

Sebastian Coe and his team were awarded the Games back in 2005, he

:02:26.:02:31.

promised that London would leave a legacy and inspire a generation.

:02:31.:02:36.

Fullback, who needed the sport's biggest stars to perform well on

:02:36.:02:41.

the world stage and boy, have they delivered. How can the Olympic

:02:41.:02:47.

Games get any more incredible? teenager kicking superstar from

:02:47.:02:53.

North Wales is the Olympic champion. And he does it, Peter Wilson has

:02:53.:03:00.

done it, he has won gold! You are an Olympic champion, you are and

:03:00.:03:07.

the Olympic champion. It is a golden triumph for Andy Murray.

:03:07.:03:13.

Unbelievable! Everybody in the crowd can proudly say, I was there.

:03:13.:03:19.

Nicola Adams has just made history. Jessica Ennis is the Olympic

:03:19.:03:29.
:03:29.:03:30.

champion. The champion becomes a legend!

:03:30.:03:36.

Wonderful images. There have been some memorable moments. Let's hear

:03:36.:03:38.

what the President of the International Olympic Committee

:03:38.:03:42.

thinks so far, are welcome to Jacques Rogge, lovely to see you

:03:42.:03:47.

again. First of all, your impressions of London 2012? I am a

:03:47.:03:52.

very grateful man for everything which has been achieved. London

:03:52.:03:57.

made promises seven years ago in Singapore but they have delivered

:03:57.:04:07.
:04:07.:04:07.

much more than we expected. When you say much more, what? There is

:04:07.:04:09.

the intractable issue that the organising committee cannot

:04:09.:04:16.

organise but it has to deliver. The kindness of the volunteers. The

:04:16.:04:21.

kindness also of the people in the street when you walk through London.

:04:21.:04:27.

This is a city partying. And also the crowds, the spectators. I think

:04:27.:04:34.

it has been amazing. Of all the venues, the Olympic Stadium, to

:04:34.:04:40.

have 80,000 people and therefore a morning session, is unheard-of.

:04:40.:04:44.

is unheard of. It is reassuring for the future of sport. We believe

:04:44.:04:49.

sport will be important for the development of youth. What you have

:04:49.:04:53.

shown here is very encouraging. talk about the legacy and the youth,

:04:53.:04:56.

it is lovely when you look around the Olympic Park, it is all

:04:56.:05:04.

families. Yes, it is families, it is an ideal whale -- an ideal way

:05:04.:05:09.

to enjoy sport. I am a happy man. Had you been impressed with the

:05:09.:05:15.

venues? It is lovely to see the kids with their faces painted. The

:05:15.:05:19.

tickets have been sold and every venue has been full but London has

:05:19.:05:23.

looked wonderful, the weather has been kind but all the venues from

:05:23.:05:30.

Horse Guards Parade to hide Park. The venues are iconic, definitely.

:05:31.:05:35.

But they also well run. The important thing is that the venues

:05:35.:05:41.

are sustainable. We will not leave any white elephant after the Games.

:05:41.:05:45.

After the eight -- out of the eight sports venues, six already have

:05:45.:05:49.

tenants. This is an important aspect. I know that was an issue

:05:49.:05:54.

because it has happened in the past? It has happened in the past

:05:54.:06:02.

but unfortunately he around there. -- here and there. We had issues

:06:02.:06:07.

where the legacy and sustainability was not considered enough will stop

:06:07.:06:11.

you created a legacy company which I believe is a good way to handle

:06:11.:06:16.

this. I would like your opinion on the opening ceremony. It had a lot

:06:16.:06:22.

of humour and also quite spectacular. I remember discussing

:06:22.:06:26.

with Sebastian at the opening ceremony in Beijing and the closing

:06:26.:06:30.

ceremony in Beijing at his intention was to go another way.

:06:30.:06:34.

Not to try to emulate China because this is not possible given the size

:06:34.:06:39.

of the population, and he said to me, this will be a British opening

:06:39.:06:44.

ceremony and it was in every sense of the word. What Danny Boyle has

:06:44.:06:49.

done was absolutely fantastic. Yes, the British sense of humour was

:06:49.:06:53.

there with Mr Bean and the Queen's parachute, it was fantastic.

:06:53.:07:01.

think that does set the tone for the Games. It has set the tone. It

:07:01.:07:07.

is for friendly, family, easy-going. Talk us through some of the events.

:07:07.:07:11.

What have you enjoyed watching? enjoyed watching many, too many to

:07:11.:07:19.

name but definitely Usain Bolt in the 100 metres and the 200m. David

:07:19.:07:24.

Rudisha yesterday evening. This was majestic. He has a strike which is

:07:24.:07:31.

so beautiful. -- he had a stride. Michael Phelps and Ryan Lochte in

:07:31.:07:41.

the swimming pool. You had Ben Ainslie in Weymouth. But many other

:07:41.:07:50.

events. These were fantastic games. I know you are a big fan of Ainslie

:07:50.:07:54.

and you love sailing, you said even when he won his third gold medal

:07:54.:07:58.

that this achievement was bigger than Michael Phelps, what do you

:07:58.:08:08.
:08:08.:08:09.

feel about him winning four? Ben is the best sailor of all time. He has

:08:09.:08:16.

now superseded the legendary Danish sailor. Benn has won for gold

:08:16.:08:23.

medals. He is the best sailor of his generation. He is the very good

:08:24.:08:27.

sailor. I'm modestly sailed in the same class in the Olympic Games so

:08:27.:08:35.

I know what it takes. I was never able to win, he has won for.

:08:35.:08:39.

said it Jonas Hogh-Christiansen made him angry. They should not

:08:39.:08:44.

have done. You mentioned Usain Bolt but I owed heard that you do not

:08:44.:08:49.

consider him a legend yet. He is everything, he is an icon, a legend,

:08:49.:08:55.

the best sprinter of all time. The description of her career is

:08:56.:09:01.

something that you do at the end of the Korea. I believe that if he is

:09:01.:09:05.

spared from injuries and if he can do one or two games more, that he

:09:05.:09:13.

might have more medals than all the other champions such as Carl Lewis.

:09:13.:09:20.

So he has still got a lot to prove. He is 25. I think there is a

:09:20.:09:25.

possibility of two more games, if he is spared from injury, if he can

:09:25.:09:33.

keep his motivation, he can get to nine medals. It has been incredible.

:09:33.:09:38.

And it is not over. There is still the relay and they have chances.

:09:38.:09:42.

Given that they were one, two and three yesterday. As long as they

:09:42.:09:48.

get the baton round, they are the only winners. It was a big moment

:09:48.:09:51.

for us yesterday when Nicola Adams became the first woman to win

:09:51.:09:55.

Olympic gold in boxing and there were incredible scenes down at the

:09:55.:10:00.

ExCel arena, for her and Katie Taylor who won yesterday. Yes, I

:10:00.:10:05.

was there. The atmosphere was unbelievable. We are very happy

:10:05.:10:08.

because we deliberately included women's boxing because we thought

:10:08.:10:12.

it was the time to do it. We have been criticised by people who said

:10:12.:10:16.

that boxing was not a sport for women and the women were not good

:10:16.:10:20.

enough to compete at the Olympic Games. I believe we have been

:10:20.:10:26.

vindicated yesterday by the success. Not only the crowd, all the

:10:26.:10:30.

specialists say this was the time. Their speed, power and technical

:10:30.:10:35.

ability, lots of people had doubts but they proved them wrong, a great

:10:35.:10:39.

advert for women's boxing and women's sport. Is there anything

:10:39.:10:45.

you feel has not worked in London? No, everything has worked apart

:10:45.:10:51.

from minute details which we were able to solve very quickly. It has

:10:51.:10:59.

been a great success. Organisation wise, but also the performances

:10:59.:11:03.

which an organiser cannot determine. If you look at the level of the

:11:03.:11:08.

competitions and the level of the result, it is fantastic. And also

:11:08.:11:12.

Great Britain being the host nation has done so well, that helps.

:11:12.:11:18.

is something we always said to the BOA and to LOCOG, I said to

:11:18.:11:23.

Sebastian Coe and, Monaghan, please give us British medals up front, we

:11:23.:11:27.

need medals on day one all day two. We had to wait until day two but

:11:27.:11:32.

from then on, what an acceleration. We cannot follow any more, I

:11:32.:11:38.

believe you must be at 56 off 57. By the time we leave the studio we

:11:38.:11:43.

will probably be over 60! probably will be! You talked about

:11:43.:11:48.

the legacy and the venues, some of them will not stay here, they are

:11:48.:11:51.

temporary stadiums which will be moved to other parts of Great

:11:51.:11:56.

Britain. Yes, that is an intelligent use of the temporary

:11:56.:12:00.

stance. If you have no need to have it in the city which has organised

:12:00.:12:07.

the games, they can be located in other cities. I think we have

:12:07.:12:11.

thrown down the gauntlet to Rio? You have done a fantastic job and

:12:11.:12:19.

it is not over yet. There are still two days to go. I will have a very

:12:19.:12:25.

warm speech at the closing ceremony. That will mean a lot to have one

:12:25.:12:29.

who has worked so hard and to everyone who is watching. Thank you

:12:29.:12:34.

for joining us. That is a wonderful view to see so many people enjoying

:12:34.:12:39.

the Olympic Games. It is unbelievable. Thank you.

:12:39.:12:45.

To we talked about medals, 244 medals have been awarded, that

:12:45.:12:50.

means 58 to go. For many athletes, it is not just whether you win, but

:12:50.:12:58.

how you celebrate. Gold, the golden moment, everyone

:12:58.:13:02.

wants it but what do you do when you have won it? Who has done the

:13:02.:13:08.

most stylish celebration of London 2012? After all, they have had four

:13:08.:13:13.

years to think about it. We have had some crackers so far. German

:13:13.:13:20.

discus thrower, Robert Harting went over the hurdles. Ben Ainslie

:13:20.:13:24.

pushed the boat out, literally lighting up the Weymouth coastline.

:13:24.:13:30.

We have had splashing swimmers, track hissing, medal biting, flag

:13:30.:13:35.

waving, shock and or at the rowing and if we want commitment to the

:13:35.:13:41.

cause, it does not get better than dancing Denise and the boys in the

:13:41.:13:46.

studio. But which brightest moments have shone for the fans? Was it

:13:46.:13:54.

this? Make some noise for the screamers. Or is your money on the

:13:54.:14:02.

move at there have been calling the moult Bott. It has gathered

:14:02.:14:08.

momentum. Feel the Love, Team GB, pure passion from Pendleton. The

:14:08.:14:13.

moment the sweetheart of the track gave us her heart. There is plenty

:14:13.:14:18.

of pointing as well. Andy Murray started it. If you do not want to

:14:19.:14:27.

look up, hit the deck, cover your eyes, lie back and think of Britain.

:14:27.:14:33.

You have just won Gold. Sir Chris Hoy likes to keep it

:14:33.:14:41.

simple, old school. Chris Hoy get the gold medal! He loves a hug as

:14:41.:14:46.

well. And we have seen lots of hugging. Most of it has been done

:14:46.:14:53.

by Sir Steve Redgrave. Keep on hugging, Sir Steve. And they have

:14:53.:15:00.

been tears as well. It has been emotional. But there is one

:15:00.:15:04.

celebration, one athlete which has captured the imagination with this,

:15:04.:15:12.

his signature move. The bolt. So, for all you young aspiring athletes

:15:12.:15:15.

out there, it is great to dream about your golden moment but you

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

will need to think about what you It has been the most famous

:15:27.:15:35.

celebration but if Mo wins tomorrow, maybe we will see his move tomorrow.

:15:35.:15:43.

And now to the handle. -- the handball. This afternoon, in the

:15:43.:15:53.
:15:53.:16:09.

Basketball Arena, Sweden are could be recovered. Sweden get the

:16:09.:16:19.
:16:19.:16:48.

throw. 14 minutes played here in by their keep -- key players so far.

:16:48.:16:58.
:16:58.:17:20.

And now cutting inside and he has given away the free-throw. He has

:17:20.:17:30.
:17:30.:17:32.

their team for all they are worth. They are trying to lift them as

:17:32.:17:42.
:17:42.:17:44.

they go through the pack. And it is a throw-in to Hungary. They will

:17:44.:17:54.
:17:54.:18:05.

see if this helps move Sweden back. standing. He comes up and finds

:18:05.:18:15.
:18:15.:18:16.

gaps in the defence. Sweden still reading. But just by two goals. --

:18:16.:18:26.
:18:26.:18:26.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 44 seconds

:18:26.:19:10.

substitutions between defence and bogged down in the defence. Before

:19:10.:19:20.
:19:20.:19:25.

he can get back out, the Swede stolen on the rebound. They did

:19:25.:19:35.
:19:35.:19:40.

substitutions between attack and defence so he has to slot in and

:19:40.:19:50.
:19:50.:19:59.

their good, strong player. Loathed to make a quick substitution.

:19:59.:20:06.

Sweden will take advantage while he goes off. Quick acceleration into

:20:06.:20:16.
:20:16.:20:22.

the wind. And saved! The 5th one by him. Too many steps there and the

:20:22.:20:32.
:20:32.:20:38.

ball is out quickly! And they do it off Iceland. But he is hobbling

:20:38.:20:44.

back up. He is remonstrating with the referee, saying, I was injured

:20:44.:20:52.

down there and I am getting no help whatsoever! He is on a 43% saved

:20:52.:20:57.

rate. He has gone storming off behind the bench. Whether the

:20:57.:21:02.

medical staff will give him treatment... And it looks like he

:21:02.:21:12.
:21:12.:21:19.

as the Hungarian bench looks on, quite bemused. There is the

:21:19.:21:28.

pressure on him. He jumps... And as he landed, it is on the landing he

:21:28.:21:33.

seems to have hurt himself. Nobody else involved. Just an awkward

:21:33.:21:41.

landing. We will have to wait and see if he comes back on again.

:21:41.:21:51.
:21:51.:22:01.

Whether he has pulled a hamstring ball of way it on these attacks.

:22:01.:22:11.
:22:11.:22:23.

And saved again! -- giving them in... And I think he landed on his

:22:23.:22:33.
:22:33.:22:34.

own player. It could be his ankle. The two Swedish coaches are in

:22:34.:22:44.
:22:44.:22:46.

discussion. They had a four goal lead at one point. That is a sad

:22:46.:22:51.

sight and this could be a huge loss for Hungary. He has scored eight so

:22:51.:22:59.

far. Four of them were penalties. He is hobbling off and the Swede

:22:59.:23:08.

limbs off as well. The hamstring, I'm afraid. Well, this is an ankle

:23:08.:23:18.
:23:18.:23:49.

injury. He jumped and he came down he was held up. Free-throw and

:23:49.:23:58.

Sweden keep possession. Hungary still only 51% success rate for the

:23:58.:24:08.
:24:08.:24:11.

shooting. But the Swedes on 61%. Sweden have scored their 23 goals

:24:11.:24:21.
:24:21.:24:25.

from only 41 shots. And a foul there. This is the second top

:24:25.:24:35.
:24:35.:24:37.

scorer for Sweden, with 42 goals. And now a change in keeper. There

:24:37.:24:45.

is the unfortunate injury and you wonder if his tournament is now

:24:45.:24:55.
:24:55.:25:08.

to take a chance. Blasted into the goal. And a cheer. As he turns the

:25:08.:25:18.
:25:18.:25:19.

wear, the Hungarian has gone back in goal. -- as he turns away. And

:25:19.:25:22.

he streams out and looks for support. But the Hungarians have

:25:22.:25:27.

got back into defence very quickly. They learned their lesson from the

:25:27.:25:31.

first half and they have been working really hard getting back in

:25:31.:25:41.
:25:41.:26:02.

sub. Again, some are necessary two- minute suspensions. -- some

:26:02.:26:12.
:26:12.:26:18.

the game. Sweden have a power play now for the next two minutes. The

:26:19.:26:24.

Hungarians, relentless in supporting their team. A free throw

:26:24.:26:30.

and he looks over him angrily as if to say, you are holding on to me.

:26:30.:26:38.

Trying to make it look like a defensive foul. Going wide and they

:26:38.:26:42.

are trying to isolate him with their defence. Looks like it is

:26:42.:26:52.
:26:52.:26:54.

working at the moment. The third goal for him. The 31-year-old,

:26:54.:27:02.

scored over 200 poles for Hungary with 18 performances. -- over 200

:27:02.:27:12.
:27:12.:27:32.

and he gets his third! Eight minutes remaining. It is now the

:27:33.:27:40.

Swedes who are fluffing their lines. Another power-play. He puts it wide.

:27:40.:27:50.
:27:50.:28:10.

And they are back to within one. time-out. Pleading with them...

:28:10.:28:19.

Don't give the ball away cheaply! And there's the captain trying to

:28:19.:28:29.
:28:29.:28:33.

say it a few words as well. He also played for Germany. Nothing quite

:28:33.:28:43.
:28:43.:28:48.

on song here in the second half. Five so far. And the stationary off

:28:49.:28:57.

the penalty shot. And the emotions of the coach. In a handball coach

:28:57.:29:05.

is not good for your blood pressure! -- being a handball coach.

:29:05.:29:13.

He cuts it the other way, and no mistake this time! He gets his 5th.

:29:13.:29:18.

The 31-year-old from Atletico Madrid. And in a few seconds,

:29:18.:29:21.

hungry will be back to full strength. They just have to be

:29:21.:29:31.
:29:31.:29:47.

been a more potent force. Here he comes. That was nearly an attacking

:29:48.:29:57.
:29:58.:30:17.

The goalkeeper says, no, it didn't. Let's see. He falls on the ball and

:30:17.:30:22.

it has got to cross the line complete the. There is so much glue

:30:22.:30:32.
:30:32.:30:32.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 44 seconds

:30:32.:31:18.

on it, it is stuck to him! But the insistent on trying to shoot from

:31:18.:31:28.
:31:28.:31:43.

that he is on two two minutes suspensions. The fans are getting

:31:43.:31:50.

more raucous in the hall. They sense a comeback. One goal in it.

:31:50.:31:55.

The last five minutes of the game remaining. He is through. It was

:31:55.:32:05.
:32:05.:32:05.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 44 seconds

:32:05.:33:46.

shot, but after that they came back in his time as a player. A

Hungarian has got a yellow card after disagree with the last

:33:49.:33:59.
:33:59.:33:59.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 44 seconds

decision. The referee went over and normal time, it is extra time. A

:34:42.:34:45.

team time-out for hungry with six seconds remaining on their power-

:34:46.:34:53.

play. -- for Hungary. The Hungarians have certainly given us

:34:53.:35:00.

four goal lead at 21-17 but since then Hungary have gone up a gear.

:35:27.:35:30.

Sweden have been three times the beaten finalists, 1992 against

Russia, 96 against Croatia and 2000 against Russia. Hungary have never

:39:11.:39:21.
:39:21.:39:30.

there is a time-out. Absolute drama right almost jumped out of their

:39:40.:39:40.

chairs with the last shot. If the Hungarians can leaven it now it

:39:40.:39:43.

will take the game into extra time but they do not have long left.

:39:44.:39:47.

There are about 40 seconds for Sweden to keep possession. What

:39:48.:39:53.

will they do? They probably need to be more aggressive in defence.

:39:53.:39:57.

Sweden are still talking, the Hungarians are wrong court, they

:39:57.:40:07.

Olympic handball competition. There it is! Sweden have hung on to win,

Nobody seemed to be coming back at him at all. A very dominant

is what makes it all the more What we can't understand, why on

earth with two canoeists on to come out in a boat? I would have thought

that is the last thing you want to do! Oh, feel the thrill of that

:47:07.:47:14.

speed on the water. That is what it Canoeing, when did it start?

:47:14.:47:20.

started when I was pretty young. Maybe 11 or 12 in the Scouts. And

:47:20.:47:23.

the Scout leaders put me in a canoe and it fully filled up because I

:47:23.:47:28.

could not swim at that point! I had never learned to swim. They showed

:47:28.:47:33.

me around on the river and it was brilliant. What do you love about

:47:33.:47:37.

the sport? When you get it right, you were using the power of the

:47:37.:47:40.

water and everything you are putting in his from what the water

:47:40.:47:46.

is giving you. And you are just flying down the river. So you won

:47:46.:47:50.

the gold medal and yet you were just sort of happy to be at the

:47:50.:47:57.

Olympics, in a way? Is that correct? I had a very serious

:47:57.:48:02.

injury a few years ago and I had to have shoulder surgery to fix it.

:48:02.:48:05.

But then, this was the London Olympics and I thought, we have got

:48:06.:48:11.

to find a way to get ourselves into the race. And let's have a crack at

:48:12.:48:21.

this because it is not going to happen again. Let's go all out.

:48:21.:48:27.

went first and a suppose once you had set that time, everybody us who

:48:27.:48:32.

competed, you thought, they have to mess up. We just watched the story

:48:32.:48:37.

unfold. We are friends with everybody so it is really better

:48:37.:48:40.

Swede. We would like them to be good but only fractionally less

:48:40.:48:50.
:48:50.:48:52.

good! If when did you know it could be gold? It is hard to say. The

:48:52.:49:00.

Slovak champions were there for their 4th historic champions.

:49:01.:49:08.

for them to go behind us, that was a shock. And once they were on

:49:08.:49:12.

course and we definitely had gold or Silva, it would be the top

:49:12.:49:20.

British crews on both steps of the podium. Or some! -- it would have

:49:20.:49:29.

been awesome. My coach was next to me and died kissed him! It was

:49:30.:49:36.

bristly! There was no time for thinking about it. It was a blur

:49:36.:49:40.

because there was not enough... If you had a camera on the side, that

:49:40.:49:46.

would have been nice. But it all happened so, so quickly. And the

:49:46.:49:50.

great thing for you, wherever you go for the rest of your lives,

:49:50.:49:55.

people will introduce you as Olympic champions. It doesn't seem

:49:55.:50:00.

like it should be happening to us! Living the dream, as they say. That

:50:00.:50:05.

is what is happening right now. That looked like fun! Enjoy your

:50:05.:50:12.

gold medals. Well done to them. No speedboats allowed down Weymouth

:50:12.:50:16.

and Portland. But they were moving pretty quickly today because I am

:50:16.:50:20.

pleased to say the wind had picked up and medals were up for grabs.

:50:20.:50:25.

And I am pleased to say, good news for Britain.

:50:25.:50:29.

We knew this morning that British sailors would win two medals but we

:50:29.:50:35.

did not know the colours. And Hannah Mills was sailing with

:50:35.:50:42.

Saskia Clark, who walked away from Beijing with nothing. In the men's

before, were in a battle with Australia. To win gold, they had to

:50:53.:51:03.
:51:03.:51:09.

them and Australia to win. We can see the line there, looking for

:51:09.:51:14.

Australia. The British team attacked the Australians and as

:51:14.:51:18.

both boats head out to the right hand side of the course, it is the

:51:18.:51:25.

British team who have the stronger start. A slow, tense first leg but

:51:25.:51:30.

it was going to plan for the Brits. This is perfect for them because

:51:30.:51:37.

there is a boat between them. Between them and the Australians.

:51:37.:51:41.

Downwind, the Brits lost the lead. They needed to change their

:51:41.:51:49.

strategy. And the British have gained. To win gold, they need to

:51:49.:51:55.

overtake the Australians and have a boat between them. Can they do it?

:51:55.:52:04.

Leg three, time to attack. A vital cross. The pressure, the intensity

:52:04.:52:14.
:52:14.:52:20.

Australia. Well, in the next few minutes, they will know, but now it

:52:20.:52:30.
:52:30.:52:30.

is Great Britain on the back foot. Patients didn't give up. A tense

:52:30.:52:36.

race but the Australians, downwind, slipped past. Great Britain, a

:52:36.:52:40.

superbly Olympic competition. We are proud of you. A Olympics silver

:52:40.:52:50.

for Great Britain and it is a great First Games, a silver medal.

:52:50.:52:55.

Fantastic! This is so good because it has been three, four years hard

:52:55.:53:01.

work together and 15 years up there. And we are here, standing on an

:53:01.:53:07.

Olympic podium. It is not a gold but we have plenty of time. We are

:53:07.:53:13.

young boys. But for now, enjoy the moment. Stuart is an absolute

:53:13.:53:18.

legend and we are happy, happy boys. A happy boy is just got a lot

:53:18.:53:22.

happier! Straight off the podium with medals around their necks. The

:53:22.:53:29.

smile is even bigger than before! Yes. That is what you dream about,

:53:29.:53:35.

that moment a couple of minutes ago. The winter training for hours and

:53:35.:53:40.

hours, and to finally do it, physically, after so many years of

:53:40.:53:47.

dreaming of doing it, that is amazing. Already thinking about Rio,

:53:47.:53:50.

but to share those last four years to go back and a moment on the

:53:50.:53:57.

podium, that is up there, Stuart? Absolutely. We went out there today

:53:57.:54:01.

and raised our hearts out. We got up on the podium just then and it

:54:01.:54:11.
:54:11.:54:16.

was something else. It felt so good. Another horror! -- some more

:54:16.:54:20.

hugging! When was the moment where you suddenly realise what you had

:54:21.:54:26.

achieved and you hugged each other? It was somewhere along the last

:54:26.:54:31.

reach coming towards the finish. We had been suppressing a lot of

:54:31.:54:35.

excitement and emotion up to then, because there was still a job to do

:54:35.:54:40.

with a gold medal in touch. But, you know, what can we say? The

:54:40.:54:45.

Aussies are slightly better than us. The did a great job. Huge

:54:45.:54:51.

congratulations. -- you did. But the girls, they also had a job to

:54:51.:55:01.
:55:01.:55:04.

but also not break a rule and let the umpires give them a penalty

:55:04.:55:09.

turn. 11 seconds to go. It looks like the Kiwis have had a

:55:09.:55:13.

disappointing start but the British team have had a better start.

:55:13.:55:17.

the start, the boats went on opposite sides of the track but

:55:17.:55:23.

only one would be rewarded. could still change. It needed a big,

:55:23.:55:33.
:55:33.:55:34.

big wind shift. Without it, they have got it all on. Roll into a

:55:34.:55:39.

jibe. Hannah Mills and Saskia Clark are at the back of the pack here.

:55:39.:55:46.

But if there can be a huge win shift just once, there can be

:55:46.:55:51.

another one. -- wind shift. But from a New Zealand perspective,

:55:51.:55:57.

things could not be going better at the moment. Look at that! They are

:55:57.:56:04.

listening to the crowds. It is London 2012 Olympic gold for the

:56:04.:56:09.

New Zealanders. Olympic silver for Hannah Mills and Saskia Clark.

:56:09.:56:15.

Right now, they are feeling the pain, but on reflection, an

:56:15.:56:25.
:56:25.:56:26.

Yeah. It was tricky. We wanted to go to the left but we 20 degrees

:56:26.:56:32.

right shift came over. Pretty gutted, to be honest, but we have

:56:32.:56:37.

had a wicked 18 months to go there and she is amazing. We have had a

:56:37.:56:41.

great time! They might have had a great time but I think they have

:56:41.:56:45.

had an even better time now. They are here with their medals, finally

:56:46.:56:52.

smiling! Yes, we really wanted that medal and to lose it in such an

:56:52.:56:58.

annoying way was a bit unfortunate. But we sailed as best we could. We

:56:58.:57:03.

are so happy to come away with a silver medal. 18 months together,

:57:03.:57:10.

silver medal? It has been an awesome 18 months. We teamed up

:57:10.:57:14.

three months for the trials and we qualified for the team. Since then,

:57:14.:57:20.

we have not looked back. We have won the worlds this year and we are

:57:20.:57:24.

gradually getting happy about that! And to share that together, just

:57:24.:57:31.

quickly, it is quite a moment? You have had a hell of a journey?

:57:31.:57:38.

We have been through the highs and the lows. We get on so well and we

:57:38.:57:41.

have so much fun together and worked really hard. You are going

:57:41.:57:47.

to have more fun. Enjoy that medal and congratulations. Britain has

:57:47.:57:57.
:57:57.:57:58.

won five medals - four silvers and one bronze. But the road to the

:57:58.:58:08.
:58:08.:58:12.

have moved ahead of South Korea in 4th place. 50 m medals in total but

:58:12.:58:21.

only 13 golds. -- 58. Later, Tom Daley will be back on the diving

:58:21.:58:26.

platform. That is coming up at 7pm. And then over to the Olympic

:58:26.:58:30.

Stadium for an exciting evening of athletics. Plenty of relays to look

:58:30.:58:35.

forward to. The sheets get under way and Great Britain go in the

:58:35.:58:45.
:58:45.:58:49.

first of the heats. -- the heapeds. That could be nervous. And the
