Welcome back. We have plenty to look forward to hear over the next
hour. We have coverage of the semi- finals of handball, I will be
talking to the President of the IOC, Jacques Rogge, and before that, the
headlines. There is more good news for Britain today.
Britain's men and women 470 crews picked up the silver medals meaning
the sailors will finish with a gold medal and four silvers.
Britain's Luke Campbell will fight for gold after reaching the final
of the bantamweight category. Anthony Ogogo got bronze earlier.
Great Britain's women beat New Zealand 3-1 to win the bronze medal
and pick up the nation's first hockey medal for 20 years.
Lutalo Muhammad suffered a disappointing defeat in his
taekwondo quarter-final but he does have a chance at bronze by the
repechage. It looks as though we have yet
another exciting evening ahead of us. One more night of athletics
before the stadium is prepared for the closing ceremony. When
Sebastian Coe and his team were awarded the Games back in 2005, he
promised that London would leave a legacy and inspire a generation.
Fullback, who needed the sport's biggest stars to perform well on
the world stage and boy, have they delivered. How can the Olympic
Games get any more incredible? teenager kicking superstar from
North Wales is the Olympic champion. And he does it, Peter Wilson has
done it, he has won gold! You are an Olympic champion, you are and
the Olympic champion. It is a golden triumph for Andy Murray.
Unbelievable! Everybody in the crowd can proudly say, I was there.
Nicola Adams has just made history. Jessica Ennis is the Olympic
champion. The champion becomes a legend!
Wonderful images. There have been some memorable moments. Let's hear
what the President of the International Olympic Committee
thinks so far, are welcome to Jacques Rogge, lovely to see you
again. First of all, your impressions of London 2012? I am a
very grateful man for everything which has been achieved. London
made promises seven years ago in Singapore but they have delivered
much more than we expected. When you say much more, what? There is
the intractable issue that the organising committee cannot
organise but it has to deliver. The kindness of the volunteers. The
kindness also of the people in the street when you walk through London.
This is a city partying. And also the crowds, the spectators. I think
it has been amazing. Of all the venues, the Olympic Stadium, to
have 80,000 people and therefore a morning session, is unheard-of.
is unheard of. It is reassuring for the future of sport. We believe
sport will be important for the development of youth. What you have
shown here is very encouraging. talk about the legacy and the youth,
it is lovely when you look around the Olympic Park, it is all
families. Yes, it is families, it is an ideal whale -- an ideal way
to enjoy sport. I am a happy man. Had you been impressed with the
venues? It is lovely to see the kids with their faces painted. The
tickets have been sold and every venue has been full but London has
looked wonderful, the weather has been kind but all the venues from
Horse Guards Parade to hide Park. The venues are iconic, definitely.
But they also well run. The important thing is that the venues
are sustainable. We will not leave any white elephant after the Games.
After the eight -- out of the eight sports venues, six already have
tenants. This is an important aspect. I know that was an issue
because it has happened in the past? It has happened in the past
but unfortunately he around there. -- here and there. We had issues
where the legacy and sustainability was not considered enough will stop
you created a legacy company which I believe is a good way to handle
this. I would like your opinion on the opening ceremony. It had a lot
of humour and also quite spectacular. I remember discussing
with Sebastian at the opening ceremony in Beijing and the closing
ceremony in Beijing at his intention was to go another way.
Not to try to emulate China because this is not possible given the size
of the population, and he said to me, this will be a British opening
ceremony and it was in every sense of the word. What Danny Boyle has
done was absolutely fantastic. Yes, the British sense of humour was
there with Mr Bean and the Queen's parachute, it was fantastic.
think that does set the tone for the Games. It has set the tone. It
is for friendly, family, easy-going. Talk us through some of the events.
What have you enjoyed watching? enjoyed watching many, too many to
name but definitely Usain Bolt in the 100 metres and the 200m. David
Rudisha yesterday evening. This was majestic. He has a strike which is
so beautiful. -- he had a stride. Michael Phelps and Ryan Lochte in
the swimming pool. You had Ben Ainslie in Weymouth. But many other
events. These were fantastic games. I know you are a big fan of Ainslie
and you love sailing, you said even when he won his third gold medal
that this achievement was bigger than Michael Phelps, what do you
feel about him winning four? Ben is the best sailor of all time. He has
now superseded the legendary Danish sailor. Benn has won for gold
medals. He is the best sailor of his generation. He is the very good
sailor. I'm modestly sailed in the same class in the Olympic Games so
I know what it takes. I was never able to win, he has won for.
said it Jonas Hogh-Christiansen made him angry. They should not
have done. You mentioned Usain Bolt but I owed heard that you do not
consider him a legend yet. He is everything, he is an icon, a legend,
the best sprinter of all time. The description of her career is
something that you do at the end of the Korea. I believe that if he is
spared from injuries and if he can do one or two games more, that he
might have more medals than all the other champions such as Carl Lewis.
So he has still got a lot to prove. He is 25. I think there is a
possibility of two more games, if he is spared from injury, if he can
keep his motivation, he can get to nine medals. It has been incredible.
And it is not over. There is still the relay and they have chances.
Given that they were one, two and three yesterday. As long as they
get the baton round, they are the only winners. It was a big moment
for us yesterday when Nicola Adams became the first woman to win
Olympic gold in boxing and there were incredible scenes down at the
ExCel arena, for her and Katie Taylor who won yesterday. Yes, I
was there. The atmosphere was unbelievable. We are very happy
because we deliberately included women's boxing because we thought
it was the time to do it. We have been criticised by people who said
that boxing was not a sport for women and the women were not good
enough to compete at the Olympic Games. I believe we have been
vindicated yesterday by the success. Not only the crowd, all the
specialists say this was the time. Their speed, power and technical
ability, lots of people had doubts but they proved them wrong, a great
advert for women's boxing and women's sport. Is there anything
you feel has not worked in London? No, everything has worked apart
from minute details which we were able to solve very quickly. It has
been a great success. Organisation wise, but also the performances
which an organiser cannot determine. If you look at the level of the
competitions and the level of the result, it is fantastic. And also
Great Britain being the host nation has done so well, that helps.
is something we always said to the BOA and to LOCOG, I said to
Sebastian Coe and, Monaghan, please give us British medals up front, we
need medals on day one all day two. We had to wait until day two but
from then on, what an acceleration. We cannot follow any more, I
believe you must be at 56 off 57. By the time we leave the studio we
will probably be over 60! probably will be! You talked about
the legacy and the venues, some of them will not stay here, they are
temporary stadiums which will be moved to other parts of Great
Britain. Yes, that is an intelligent use of the temporary
stance. If you have no need to have it in the city which has organised
the games, they can be located in other cities. I think we have
thrown down the gauntlet to Rio? You have done a fantastic job and
it is not over yet. There are still two days to go. I will have a very
warm speech at the closing ceremony. That will mean a lot to have one
who has worked so hard and to everyone who is watching. Thank you
for joining us. That is a wonderful view to see so many people enjoying
the Olympic Games. It is unbelievable. Thank you.
To we talked about medals, 244 medals have been awarded, that
means 58 to go. For many athletes, it is not just whether you win, but
how you celebrate. Gold, the golden moment, everyone
wants it but what do you do when you have won it? Who has done the
most stylish celebration of London 2012? After all, they have had four
years to think about it. We have had some crackers so far. German
discus thrower, Robert Harting went over the hurdles. Ben Ainslie
pushed the boat out, literally lighting up the Weymouth coastline.
We have had splashing swimmers, track hissing, medal biting, flag
waving, shock and or at the rowing and if we want commitment to the
cause, it does not get better than dancing Denise and the boys in the
studio. But which brightest moments have shone for the fans? Was it
this? Make some noise for the screamers. Or is your money on the
move at there have been calling the moult Bott. It has gathered
momentum. Feel the Love, Team GB, pure passion from Pendleton. The
moment the sweetheart of the track gave us her heart. There is plenty
of pointing as well. Andy Murray started it. If you do not want to
look up, hit the deck, cover your eyes, lie back and think of Britain.
You have just won Gold. Sir Chris Hoy likes to keep it
simple, old school. Chris Hoy get the gold medal! He loves a hug as
well. And we have seen lots of hugging. Most of it has been done
by Sir Steve Redgrave. Keep on hugging, Sir Steve. And they have
been tears as well. It has been emotional. But there is one
celebration, one athlete which has captured the imagination with this,
his signature move. The bolt. So, for all you young aspiring athletes
out there, it is great to dream about your golden moment but you
will need to think about what you It has been the most famous
celebration but if Mo wins tomorrow, maybe we will see his move tomorrow.
And now to the handle. -- the handball. This afternoon, in the
Basketball Arena, Sweden are could be recovered. Sweden get the
throw. 14 minutes played here in by their keep -- key players so far.
And now cutting inside and he has given away the free-throw. He has
their team for all they are worth. They are trying to lift them as
they go through the pack. And it is a throw-in to Hungary. They will
see if this helps move Sweden back. standing. He comes up and finds
gaps in the defence. Sweden still reading. But just by two goals. --

he can get back out, the Swede stolen on the rebound. They did
substitutions between attack and defence so he has to slot in and
their good, strong player. Loathed to make a quick substitution.
Sweden will take advantage while he goes off. Quick acceleration into
the wind. And saved! The 5th one by him. Too many steps there and the
ball is out quickly! And they do it off Iceland. But he is hobbling
back up. He is remonstrating with the referee, saying, I was injured
down there and I am getting no help whatsoever! He is on a 43% saved
rate. He has gone storming off behind the bench. Whether the
medical staff will give him treatment... And it looks like he
as the Hungarian bench looks on, quite bemused. There is the
pressure on him. He jumps... And as he landed, it is on the landing he
seems to have hurt himself. Nobody else involved. Just an awkward
landing. We will have to wait and see if he comes back on again.
Whether he has pulled a hamstring ball of way it on these attacks.
And saved again! -- giving them in... And I think he landed on his
own player. It could be his ankle. The two Swedish coaches are in
discussion. They had a four goal lead at one point. That is a sad
sight and this could be a huge loss for Hungary. He has scored eight so
far. Four of them were penalties. He is hobbling off and the Swede
limbs off as well. The hamstring, I'm afraid. Well, this is an ankle
injury. He jumped and he came down he was held up. Free-throw and
Sweden keep possession. Hungary still only 51% success rate for the
shooting. But the Swedes on 61%. Sweden have scored their 23 goals
from only 41 shots. And a foul there. This is the second top
scorer for Sweden, with 42 goals. And now a change in keeper. There
is the unfortunate injury and you wonder if his tournament is now
to take a chance. Blasted into the goal. And a cheer. As he turns the
wear, the Hungarian has gone back in goal. -- as he turns away. And
he streams out and looks for support. But the Hungarians have
got back into defence very quickly. They learned their lesson from the
first half and they have been working really hard getting back in
sub. Again, some are necessary two- minute suspensions. -- some

Hungarians, relentless in supporting their team. A free throw
and he looks over him angrily as if to say, you are holding on to me.
Trying to make it look like a defensive foul. Going wide and they
are trying to isolate him with their defence. Looks like it is
working at the moment. The third goal for him. The 31-year-old,
scored over 200 poles for Hungary with 18 performances. -- over 200
and he gets his third! Eight minutes remaining. It is now the
Swedes who are fluffing their lines. Another power-play. He puts it wide.
And they are back to within one. time-out. Pleading with them...
Don't give the ball away cheaply! And there's the captain trying to
say it a few words as well. He also played for Germany. Nothing quite
on song here in the second half. Five so far. And the stationary off
the penalty shot. And the emotions of the coach. In a handball coach

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

Sweden have been three times the beaten finalists, 1992 against

12th save of the game. It could be absolutely crucial. The coach
cannot believe it. One minute and eight seconds to go. Sweden are on
the attack. They lead by only one the clock still ticks down. Now
there is a time-out. Absolute drama right almost jumped out of their
chairs with the last shot. If the Hungarians can leaven it now it
will take the game into extra time but they do not have long left.
There are about 40 seconds for Sweden to keep possession. What
will they do? They probably need to be more aggressive in defence.
Sweden are still talking, the Hungarians are wrong court, they
want to get on with it. -- they are Sweden. They are in the crowd as
they have been on many occasions supporting Sweden. He has scored!
There is one goal in it. The clock has been stopped with five seconds
remaining. The technical official play will resume with five seconds
remaining for Sweden to hang on and go to the final of the London 2012
Olympic handball competition. There it is! Sweden have hung on to win,

the Scout leaders put me in a canoe and it fully filled up because I
could not swim at that point! I had never learned to swim. They showed
me around on the river and it was brilliant. What do you love about
the sport? When you get it right, you were using the power of the
water and everything you are putting in his from what the water
is giving you. And you are just flying down the river. So you won
the gold medal and yet you were just sort of happy to be at the
Olympics, in a way? Is that correct? I had a very serious
injury a few years ago and I had to have shoulder surgery to fix it.
But then, this was the London Olympics and I thought, we have got
to find a way to get ourselves into the race. And let's have a crack at
this because it is not going to happen again. Let's go all out.

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

for them to go behind us, that was a shock. And once they were on
course and we definitely had gold or Silva, it would be the top
British crews on both steps of the podium. Or some! -- it would have
been awesome. My coach was next to me and died kissed him! It was
bristly! There was no time for thinking about it. It was a blur
because there was not enough... If you had a camera on the side, that
would have been nice. But it all happened so, so quickly. And the
great thing for you, wherever you go for the rest of your lives,
people will introduce you as Olympic champions. It doesn't seem
like it should be happening to us! Living the dream, as they say. That
is what is happening right now. That looked like fun! Enjoy your
gold medals. Well done to them. No speedboats allowed down Weymouth
and Portland. But they were moving pretty quickly today because I am
pleased to say the wind had picked up and medals were up for grabs.
And I am pleased to say, good news for Britain.
We knew this morning that British sailors would win two medals but we
did not know the colours. And Hannah Mills was sailing with
Saskia Clark, who walked away from Beijing with nothing. In the men's
470, Scotland's Luke Patience sailing with his best mate, Stuart
before, were in a battle with Australia. To win gold, they had to
them and Australia to win. We can see the line there, looking for
Australia. The British team attacked the Australians and as
both boats head out to the right hand side of the course, it is the
British team who have the stronger start. A slow, tense first leg but
it was going to plan for the Brits. This is perfect for them because
there is a boat between them. Between them and the Australians.
Downwind, the Brits lost the lead. They needed to change their
strategy. And the British have gained. To win gold, they need to
overtake the Australians and have a boat between them. Can they do it?
Leg three, time to attack. A vital cross. The pressure, the intensity
Australia. Well, in the next few minutes, they will know, but now it
is Great Britain on the back foot. Patients didn't give up. A tense
race but the Australians, downwind, slipped past. Great Britain, a
superbly Olympic competition. We are proud of you. A Olympics silver
for Great Britain and it is a great First Games, a silver medal.
Fantastic! This is so good because it has been three, four years hard
work together and 15 years up there. And we are here, standing on an
Olympic podium. It is not a gold but we have plenty of time. We are
young boys. But for now, enjoy the moment. Stuart is an absolute
legend and we are happy, happy boys. A happy boy is just got a lot
happier! Straight off the podium with medals around their necks. The
smile is even bigger than before! Yes. That is what you dream about,
that moment a couple of minutes ago. The winter training for hours and
hours, and to finally do it, physically, after so many years of
dreaming of doing it, that is amazing. Already thinking about Rio,
but to share those last four years to go back and a moment on the
podium, that is up there, Stuart? Absolutely. We went out there today
and raised our hearts out. We got up on the podium just then and it
was something else. It felt so good. Another horror! -- some more
hugging! When was the moment where you suddenly realise what you had
achieved and you hugged each other? It was somewhere along the last
reach coming towards the finish. We had been suppressing a lot of
excitement and emotion up to then, because there was still a job to do
with a gold medal in touch. But, you know, what can we say? The
Aussies are slightly better than us. The did a great job. Huge
congratulations. -- you did. But the girls, they also had a job to

only one would be rewarded. could still change. It needed a big,
big wind shift. Without it, they have got it all on. Roll into a
jibe. Hannah Mills and Saskia Clark are at the back of the pack here.
But if there can be a huge win shift just once, there can be
another one. -- wind shift. But from a New Zealand perspective,
things could not be going better at the moment. Look at that! They are
listening to the crowds. It is London 2012 Olympic gold for the
New Zealanders. Olympic silver for Hannah Mills and Saskia Clark.
Right now, they are feeling the pain, but on reflection, an

had a wicked 18 months to go there and she is amazing. We have had a
great time! They might have had a great time but I think they have
had an even better time now. They are here with their medals, finally
smiling! Yes, we really wanted that medal and to lose it in such an
annoying way was a bit unfortunate. But we sailed as best we could. We
are so happy to come away with a silver medal. 18 months together,
silver medal? It has been an awesome 18 months. We teamed up
three months for the trials and we qualified for the team. Since then,
we have not looked back. We have won the worlds this year and we are
gradually getting happy about that! And to share that together, just
quickly, it is quite a moment? You have had a hell of a journey?
We have been through the highs and the lows. We get on so well and we
have so much fun together and worked really hard. You are going
to have more fun. Enjoy that medal and congratulations. Britain has
won five medals - four silvers and one bronze. But the road to the

only 13 golds. -- 58. Later, Tom Daley will be back on the diving
platform. That is coming up at 7pm. And then over to the Olympic
Stadium for an exciting evening of athletics. Plenty of relays to look
forward to. The sheets get under way and Great Britain go in the
first of the heats. -- the heapeds. That could be nervous. And the
