Welcome back to the Olympic Park. The good news is that Britain does

:00:53.:00:57.

have its first medal of this games. Lizzie Armistead cycling through

:00:57.:01:03.

the rain today. She won a silver medal. She was just pipped on the

:01:04.:01:08.

line by the pre-race favourite, Marianne Vos. But well done to

:01:08.:01:12.

Lizzie, a silver medal today. Hopefully, Becky Adlington will be

:01:12.:01:16.

able to add to that as she defends her title tonight in the pool at

:01:16.:01:21.

8:15pm. This is what we can look forward to over the next couple of

:01:21.:01:25.

hours. We will be heading off to Wimbledon in a moment to see Maria

Sharapova. She is in action at volleyball. Will be after Weymouth

rhythm early on. In the last game, Shahar Peer at the other end had a

:03:48.:03:56.

little bit of a slip, the left leg gave way. She looked in a fair

:04:06.:04:39.

amount of discomfort, it is already to favour Sharapova. Her serve and

:04:39.:04:49.

ground strokes are much more the hit, it echoes all the more for

remarkable winning the French, to complete the set of all the Grand

:07:30.:07:33.

Slams for Sharapova this year. She was sliding with her left leg on

:07:33.:07:40.

the clay, but it still was such a surprise. It was. Even Sharapova

:07:40.:07:45.

was surprised she was this comfortable playing on a slippery

:07:45.:07:51.

surface. Three years back she said she felt like a cow on ice playing

:07:51.:07:55.

on the clay at Roland Garros, because the movement is always so

:07:55.:08:00.

difficult for her. She has so much power but that place lows that down

:08:00.:08:06.

and diffusers her power, so she lost such an advantage. To get the

fully and have a huge weapon of a serve. She struggled with double

:08:28.:08:32.

faults. Do you think she's back where she once was when it was such

:08:32.:08:37.

a major weapon for her? I do. It's something she can rely on. She can

:08:37.:08:43.

pick her spots and she has the power. That was critical for her.

:08:43.:08:46.

It wasn't a comeback that came quickly. She had to work through a

:08:46.:08:51.

lot of losses and build it back up, build the confidence and the

:08:51.:08:55.

ranking. She became number one in the world again after winning the

capability with her own serve but the last seven games for Sharapova.

:13:17.:13:27.
:13:27.:13:32.

It's a comfortable set. 6-2 in 33 year. She finished at number 13,

:13:32.:13:38.

the highest ever for any Israeli. Seven semi-finals or better. Five

:13:38.:13:42.

year, backing up a great year. ended up at 37. She has had up and

down in her rankings. In 2007, she got to two quarter-finals, the

Australian Open and the US Open, the only two quarter-finals that

:14:00.:14:07.

she's had. Shahar Peer gets it done by being gritty, being a great

fighter, getting that extra ball back in play against this young

:14:11.:14:16.

lady, Maria Sharapova. It looks like Sharapova has too much

:14:16.:14:20.

firepower. She will hit through you right from the first point, she's

:14:20.:14:25.

smothering you with power. Trying to finish the point with each shot

penetrate. If you could have five minutes with Shahar Peer now, is

:14:48.:14:51.

there anything you could say to turn this around, what has she got

:14:51.:14:55.

to focus on? There's not much she could do right now because

:14:55.:14:59.

Sharapova is playing very well. She is serving well and striking her

:14:59.:15:02.

ground strokes perfectly now. Shahar Peer has got to try and

Peer if I had five minutes with her, but afterwards I would tell her to

:17:38.:17:43.

work on her serve. She needs to look at video tape and film of some

of the best servers because she does not use her forehand.

So in the first game of the second she wouldn't have missed though

you will never lose it, and if you don't, you wonder when you will

the match. -- the second set. We talked about it at the time, first

round of losing any tournament, the big events, and potential banana

skins for all the play's -- first round of blues at any tournament.

:23:15.:23:19.

You have to get used to the atmosphere, although the top

:23:19.:23:22.

players have played a lot of matches here at Wimbledon only

:23:22.:23:32.
:23:32.:23:50.

In the first couple of years it was struggled at Wimbledon after taking

:23:50.:23:54.

the French Open. She came into Wimbledon full of confidence and

:24:23.:24:28.

you have to make amends for not being as good as you wanted to be,

:24:28.:24:32.

perhaps. That gave her the second week of, not that she wanted it,

:24:32.:24:42.
:24:42.:25:04.

but it was time to recharge -- to win the French and then backing

:25:14.:25:33.

it up by winning Wimbledon, a beforehand. Frequently, in my

:25:33.:25:39.

opinion, she opens the left side of her body sooner than she should. So

:25:39.:25:45.

the left side comes around, then the right side comes around and it

:25:45.:25:55.
:25:55.:25:56.

is in two sequences where it should everything is moving together, and

:25:56.:26:02.

you get more power as well. -- if everything is moving together. And

on her serve, she is not using her Andy Roddick, he loads with the

opening service game of the match helped Sharapova get back on level

terms, but she is facing a lot more trouble this time around, Shahar

:27:35.:27:40.

Peer. She puts so much pressure on her opponents because she has such

:27:40.:27:46.

a phenomenal return. It is deep, hard, accurate. So the server can

:27:46.:27:56.
:27:56.:28:27.

get on the defence right away in Sharapova inside the baseline to

Centre court. We will keep you up- to-date with that match, and if you

want to continue watching it live, We are going to be heading off to

the beach volleyball, because Great Britain's women are in action.

:30:12.:30:15.

Before that, boxing from the welterweight division, and the

:30:15.:30:22.

opening bout for Britain's medal hope Fred Evans. He is surprisingly

:30:22.:30:31.

unseeded, despite being champion. Here he is fighting his Algerian

:30:31.:30:41.
:30:41.:31:00.

seeded in this division, so he has a point to prove there, just to say

:31:00.:31:05.

he should have been. I find it astonishing that Fred Evans wasn't

:31:06.:31:15.
:31:16.:31:40.

character and sometimes he has been a bit lazy in contests, but not

:31:50.:32:38.

little left hands by the Welshman. Evans' style, he is predominantly

:32:38.:32:48.
:32:48.:33:20.

punter. He can punch with either moves away from an attack, now and

:33:20.:33:30.
:33:30.:33:49.

Evans, right then left. Perfect combination to finish it. Happy

:33:49.:33:56.

with that? Yeah, good start. 7-5 up, just two points ahead. I think

:33:56.:34:03.

that's pretty fair. I think they will be pleased in that corner. He

:34:03.:34:13.
:34:13.:34:14.

has to tighten up on his defence caught with a wild swing. Fred

:34:14.:34:19.

Evans, some good shots, lovely right hand in on the inside. They

:34:19.:34:25.

will be pleased. Got himself out of trouble very nicely. The opponent's

Buddy Box two. Evans needs that said to them and, this British

:35:32.:35:35.

boxer is an out and out counterpuncher, so don't go to him,

:35:35.:35:38.

let him come to you a bit more because he's not just taking all

:35:38.:35:41.

the steps forward that he did in the opening round, he's waiting for

:35:41.:35:44.

Evans to come for him. It will change the whole dynamic of this

:35:44.:35:54.
:35:54.:36:19.

contest. A bit wild there from glove again, I didn't agree with

:36:19.:36:29.

boxing career by Freddie Evans. But there's still a lot of work for him

:37:45.:37:55.
:37:55.:38:02.

good round by Evans. 5-2, he's opened up a five point gap. I

:38:02.:38:05.

thought he might have been closer because I thought the Algerian did

:38:05.:38:09.

some of the work in that round, although some of the good single

:38:09.:38:14.

shots were landed by Evans. thought some of his work was more

:38:14.:38:19.

accurate. Certainly the left hand got through their from Evans. A

:38:19.:38:26.

mixed round. The judges obviously saw a little more than we did. And

:38:26.:38:32.

he is ahead, and rightly so. I think any opponent going to Freddie

:38:32.:38:36.

Evans is going to have problems. He's an out-and-out counterpuncher.

:38:36.:38:46.
:38:46.:39:03.

Let's listen to what the corner minutes away from earning himself a

there from Evans. Evans is loving this. He is rising to the occasion.

:40:48.:40:55.

He's just got to stay tighter now, Jim. First the gumshield, then the

:40:55.:41:01.

lace. This Algerian may get a bit desperate now and may start coming

:41:01.:41:04.

in and throwing more shots. That will give Evans more chances to

:41:04.:41:08.

land punches. He's got to get his timing right as his opponent comes

counterpuncher. Evans, I think he realises he is winning this.

:42:46.:42:50.

crowd knows he's winning it. I'm pretty sure that judges will as

:42:50.:42:57.

well. What a great start by Freddie Evans. That was a 100 mph contest.

:42:57.:43:01.

Freddie Evatt allows himself a little smile. Well done. Listen to

:43:01.:43:11.
:43:11.:43:21.

the crowd as well. He is a star all his own way. No, he got caught

Ladies and gentlemen, the winner by a score of 18 points to 10, in the

:44:01.:44:09.

red corner, representing Great Britain, Freddie Evans! A great

:44:09.:44:19.

last round by Freddie Evans. Freddie Evans is through to the

:44:19.:44:23.

second series in this welterweight division. The European champion is

:44:23.:44:33.
:44:33.:44:38.

still in with a shout of becoming Well done to Freddie Evans. We

:44:38.:44:43.

mentioned he wasn't seeded. He is actually prove to have faced a

:44:43.:44:47.

number of four seed of Lithuania, who beat him at the World

:44:47.:44:49.

Championships in the quarter-finals last year, so that it is not going

:44:49.:44:54.

to be easy. But it is a wide-open division. You may be able to see

:44:54.:44:58.

behind me there are thousands and thousands of people making their

:44:58.:45:02.

way to the Aquatics Centre, because everyone is hoping that Becky

:45:02.:45:06.

Adlington can win have 400m freestyle gold medal. She won it

:45:06.:45:10.

four years ago. She defends her title tonight. But Federica

:45:10.:45:16.

Pellegrini is in form and the one to beat. A great evening ahead.

:45:16.:45:21.

Becky is at 8:15pm in the final. We are heading to archery now. We've

:45:21.:45:26.

got the final, not live later on at about 6:40pm. We know that the

:45:26.:45:28.

South Korean women are through to the final. They've been the

:45:28.:45:32.

dominant force and won the last six Olympic titles, but who will they

:45:32.:45:39.

meet? They are up against China, who were the semi-finalists, the

:45:39.:45:43.

silver-medallists four years ago, up against Russia. Let's see what

Smoothly, under the face, 1, 2, 3, arrow went forward enough. Straight

were dancing and smiling, but I'm not saying that behaviour this time

didn't seem that bad. Certainly her reaction from that score would

you shoot one which goes off, it does not feel great, it feels like

you have let your teammates down. No matter how many times they say

it doesn't matter, it does, and it hurts. It is not quite as lonely as

getting under way at Lord's. You can watch it on the bed button. We

:04:29.:04:33.

are hoping to go there later on. We are going to the beach volleyball

:04:33.:04:37.

in just a moment, which is running a little bit late. First, let's

:04:37.:04:44.

check on the headlines. And Britain has won its first medal at these

has won its first medal at these Olympics, Lizzie Armitstead,

getting silver in a thrilling finish to the women's road race.

Marianne Vos took the gold. Defending 400m Freestyle champion

:04:56.:05:00.

Rebecca Adlington had an anxious wait to see if she had made it into

:05:00.:05:07.

tonight's final, and she had: but only just. Ben Ainslie came second

:05:07.:05:14.

in his first two races in the Finn class, as he aims for a record

:05:14.:05:18.

equalling fourth Olympic gold medal. And there's more Olympic heartbreak

:05:18.:05:21.

for Paula Radcliffe, the 38-year- old withdrawing from the Marathon

:05:21.:05:28.

after failing to recover from a foot injury. Disappointing news for

:05:28.:05:33.

Paula Radcliffe, but great news for Lizzie Armitstead. Well done to her.

:05:33.:05:37.

Now, we head to Horse Guards Parade for the beach volleyball, where the

:05:37.:05:41.

residents have had a bit of trouble getting to sleep. Last night, the

:05:41.:05:47.

last women's game did not finish until 20 the midnight. We will be

:05:47.:05:51.

going there in a moment to see the British women play their opening

:05:51.:05:55.

group match. But first, Andrew Cotter takes us through some key

:05:55.:06:00.

Cotter takes us through some key moves to look out for. Beach

:06:00.:06:07.

volleyball - the six key moves are the serve, pass, set, attack, block

:06:07.:06:15.

and dig. The jump serve is an overhead smash which generates

:06:15.:06:21.

power. The floating serve is played without Spain, and it is hard to

:06:21.:06:26.

read the flight. Players will use hand signals to communicate tactics

:06:26.:06:36.
:06:36.:06:38.

to their teammates. Passing is when you receive the ball after service.

:06:38.:06:42.

A set is where a player position as the ball for their teammate to

:06:42.:06:52.
:06:52.:06:53.

attack. Attack involves the spike, where players hit the ball overarm.

:06:53.:07:03.
:07:03.:07:03.

The block may involve getting to the net to block the ball. The dig

:07:03.:07:10.

is a defensive move, following a spike. If you would like to get

Horse Guards Parade. It is a whole new experience for this area of the

capital, with loud music and screaming fans. Here we go, down

the River Thames, turned right, and we finally arrive at the venue. It

has to be one of the most extraordinary Olympic Panorama's

SUE BARKER: That was just a few moments ago. They are up against

:08:18.:08:28.
:08:28.:08:30.

Canada. We join it in the first game. Over to Matt Chilton. The

:08:30.:08:33.

opening set has been very much dominated by the Canadians. Great

:08:33.:08:37.

dominated by the Canadians. Great Britain trail at the moment. It was

:08:37.:08:44.

a decent serve, and it has given Great Britain the first points

:08:44.:08:54.
:08:54.:08:54.

since the time out. That was a very good serve, goes down as an ace.

:08:54.:09:02.

Dampney to serve again. Mullin is back on her feet, looking for a way

:09:02.:09:12.
:09:12.:09:12.

through. Dampney with the set, and Mullin... Rolling it over the top

:09:12.:09:21.

of the net. And Great Britain on a bit of a role here. 10-13. Dampney

:09:21.:09:31.
:09:31.:09:33.

will serve for the third time. 26- year-old Dampney, that's long. It

:09:33.:09:38.

is left by the Canadians. The British pair started the match

:09:38.:09:43.

nervously, then they seemed to settle. Then, the Canadians got up

:09:43.:09:51.

a head of steam. Can Great Britain work this serve, coming through

:09:51.:10:01.
:10:01.:10:02.

from 30-year-old Annie Martin. That's perfectly played. They are

:10:02.:10:09.

within 3. First to 21 in the first two sets. There will be a deciding

:10:09.:10:19.
:10:19.:10:21.

set, if we get that far. Shauna Mullin, South African born. A Scot.

:10:21.:10:26.

Dampney did well, but the outstretched hand of Dampney just

:10:26.:10:34.

guided the ball out of play. Lessard and Martin are leading by

:10:34.:10:39.

15-11. It has been a wet and blustery day at times in the West

:10:39.:10:45.

End. Lots of noise in Horse Guards Parade again. Over the top, beyond

:10:45.:10:52.

the line, that will do for Great the line, that will do for Great

:10:52.:10:56.

Britain. 12-15. They played in the Olympic test event here one year

:10:56.:11:02.

ago. They won their group matches before finally being beaten by the

:11:02.:11:06.

reigning Olympic champions, Kerri Walsh and Misty May, who won here

:11:06.:11:12.

last night. That one goes straight into the net, and the British

:11:12.:11:17.

couple will take those free points. Another change events coming up.

:11:17.:11:22.

They switched ends after every seven points in the first two sets.

:11:22.:11:31.

They are in touch here. A few nerves early on. When they finally

:11:31.:11:36.

scored their first ever Olympic point, they started to settle.

:11:36.:11:43.

Dampney has served well - let's see what she has got here. The

:11:43.:11:53.
:11:53.:11:58.

Great Britain are just one point behind. In order to disturb the

:11:58.:12:08.
:12:08.:12:24.

momentum of Mullin and NASA, the the time-out was just a tactical

:12:24.:12:34.
:12:34.:12:43.

ploy, to disrupt the rhythm of above Horse Guards Parade for the

:12:43.:12:53.
:12:53.:13:02.

first time in about four hours. The too far in front of the British

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

players, who were trapped in the middle of the court. Annie Martin

:13:13.:13:23.
:13:23.:13:24.

to serve. And deflected into the chest of Zara Dampney. There was

:13:24.:13:31.

not much more she could do with that. She was diving to pick up the

:13:31.:13:41.
:13:41.:13:49.

expected trajectory of the ball, she attacks. That's not so good.

:13:49.:13:55.

She fires it directly into the net. And Great Britain are once again

:13:55.:14:05.
:14:05.:14:16.

hot on the heels of the Canadians, Guest, she can! Extraordinary point

:14:16.:14:24.

for Great Britain! They were down deep in the dust, both of them,

:14:24.:14:30.

Mullin and Dampney. The Canadians were scrapping and diving as well.

:14:30.:14:35.

And then, out of nowhere, Dampney picked herself up to provide the

:14:36.:14:45.
:14:46.:14:46.

winning shot. Shauna Mullin to serve. It is out. A collective gasp

:14:46.:14:56.
:14:56.:15:17.

angle, deciding to go down the line, but could not find the target. 19-

:15:18.:15:21.

16 in favour of Canada now in the opening set. There have been

:15:32.:16:33.

encouraging moments in this first head back to their bench with

plenty to be encouraged about in the first set. But the Canadians

volleyball. She then went on to study for a law degree at the

:17:51.:17:56.

The Lions have been raked clear. We are ready, in bright sunshine now,

:18:59.:19:07.

Britain lead in the second set. Dampney's efforts just came up

:19:07.:19:17.
:19:17.:19:18.

short. But the British pair are beginning to trouble the Canadians

:19:28.:19:28.

:19:28.:20:36.

ball and rolls it down the line for players, it landed between Dampney

:20:36.:20:43.

and Mullin at front and back of the court. Perfect placement. Clever

:20:43.:20:53.
:20:53.:20:59.

stuff from Martin. Off the net. Great pick-up from Dampney. She

:20:59.:21:05.

courageously dove deep into the sand to pick it up. Dampney was

:21:05.:21:11.

there in a flash. Mullin provided a perfect set, and the point went to

:21:11.:21:17.

Great Britain. They changed ends. Dampney will now serve from the

:21:27.:22:08.

perfect from the British pair. Pass, said, Spike, the three major

elements in beach volleyball. The Canadians were relieved to see it

shape hair, and out of luck. And Great Britain are moving away from

:23:01.:23:11.
:23:11.:23:31.

when they are doing the simple things well. There is the single

:23:31.:23:36.

from Lessard to Martin, who is on the extreme left of the court at

:23:36.:23:46.
:23:46.:24:04.

Mullin, because she had to take it from a standing start without any

:24:04.:24:14.
:24:14.:24:14.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 122 seconds

:24:14.:25:19.

run-up. Great strength to put that the chest. Martin could only react

:25:19.:25:29.
:25:29.:26:00.

helping every step of the way. The Canadians are rattled. They have

:26:00.:26:04.

taken the time out to try and disrupt Zara Dampney and Shauna

:26:04.:26:14.
:26:14.:26:33.

as they discuss tactics. And yes, that is the music from Benny Hill

:26:33.:26:43.
:26:43.:26:48.

here in London, last night in particular, was fantastic. The

:26:48.:26:56.

music was amazing, the dancing was great, the sport was brilliant. The

:26:56.:27:00.

crowd, after a day in the sunshine and one or two beers, were very

:27:00.:27:05.

lively. The atmosphere was fabulous. It is lively again this afternoon,

:27:05.:27:10.

and possibly about to get better if Great Britain can take this second

:27:10.:27:20.
:27:20.:27:34.

time out to prove to be a good call for the Canadians, as they take the

:27:34.:27:44.
:27:44.:27:44.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 122 seconds

:27:44.:28:38.

the second set. It looks like we will be heading for a decider. The

final set will be shortened. It is You can just see the top of

:29:29.:29:39.

take the second set? Not the most auspicious start from Shauna Mullin,

:29:39.:29:40.

firing the serve straight into the net. But they still have a six

:29:41.:29:50.
:29:51.:29:58.

point cushion. It is an ace. Back- to- back points for the Canadians.

:29:58.:30:08.
:30:08.:30:18.

But they are not yet into double Dampney. The ball was not hit

:30:18.:30:28.
:30:28.:30:30.

cleanly on the stack. Let's see if we can spot it here. Yes. And Great

:30:30.:30:36.

Britain have decided that a time- out is required. A loss here would

:30:36.:30:42.

not be terminal. Of the 24 teams in the tournament, 16 will go through

:30:42.:30:52.

to the knockout stages. But of course, Great Britain are keen to

:30:52.:30:59.

get off the mark with a win, as are the Canadians. Just a few shaky

:31:00.:31:08.

moments since that last time out. There are some Canadian supporters

:31:08.:31:18.
:31:18.:31:24.

in Horse Guards Parade this now. The serve, from Lessard. This

:31:24.:31:33.

looks more promising... But Dampney is blocked out by any Martin, who

:31:33.:31:43.
:31:43.:32:10.

shaped as if to be playing a big hit, but in the end went for the

:32:10.:32:20.
:32:20.:32:30.

Mullin! Two touch is used instead of the three that are available. It

from Annie Martin to take the point supporters here at Horse Guards

Parade, as they wait to see if Dampney and Mullin can close out

:34:22.:34:31.

this second set. Lessard, too good once again. The Canadians are on

:34:31.:34:41.
:34:41.:35:14.

the charge. 21 points required to Shauna Mullin had touched the net,

:35:14.:35:24.
:35:24.:35:24.

but I can see no sign of it in the replay. That takes Great Britain to

:35:24.:35:34.
:35:34.:35:56.

off the shoulder of Dampney. That was hit extremely hard. The beach

:35:56.:36:06.
:36:06.:36:29.

volleyball, about a third lighter here at Horse Guards Parade, and

:36:29.:36:39.

that has got the crowd going again. So, there will be a toss of the

:36:39.:36:44.

coin to decide who will serve at the start of the shorter final set

:36:44.:36:53.

- first to 15. They will change ends every five points. A two-point

:36:53.:36:58.

advantage still required at the end, though. We have got the dancing

:36:58.:37:08.
:37:08.:37:11.

boys and girls on the court, and in the grandstand as well. Three aces

:37:11.:37:19.

in that second set for the British team contributed to that total. Can

:37:19.:37:29.
:37:29.:37:44.

they take it at all the way now, the final set, from the Mall end.

:37:44.:37:52.

Great expectation here in Westminster. Here we go. Dampney

:37:52.:37:59.

has picked it up well, but the first point is called for a lift

:37:59.:38:04.

against Mullin on the set. In other words, the referee believes that

:38:04.:38:14.
:38:14.:38:17.

she held the ball. And he is probably right. There it is one of

:38:17.:38:21.

those grey areas in the rules, open to interpretation from the referee.

:38:21.:38:31.
:38:31.:38:55.

pace and accuracy. The set was perfect as well. Martin gave the

:38:55.:39:05.
:39:05.:39:30.

British team no chance with the deciding set. A mistake from the

:39:30.:39:40.
:39:40.:39:44.

Canadians allowed Great Britain to carbon copy of their previous

:39:44.:39:54.
:39:54.:39:59.

attack. So, a change events. The Canadians now at the Downing Street

:39:59.:40:09.
:40:09.:40:12.

end of the court. And Marie-Andree Lessard will serve. The Mullin

:40:12.:40:15.

tried to go it alone. It is advantage Canada. They have the

:40:15.:40:25.
:40:25.:40:34.

point. Now, a two-point gap opens up for the Canadians. Lessard

:40:34.:40:39.

serving again. Mullin called for it, and she comes back to try and

:40:39.:40:49.
:40:49.:41:06.

wanted to do. The return ball from from the Canadians, who let that

:41:06.:41:16.
:41:16.:41:28.

wondered for a split second whether she should let it go, but decided

:41:28.:41:38.
:41:38.:41:40.

to take it. In the end, it was a nothing sort of block. And the

It is proving to be the hottest ticket in tell. -- in tone. -- in

Great Britain get the point. The whistle had blown following an

They could go a long way in the competition. But the first of their

:53:52.:54:00.

The first daily events got under way in Weymouth and Portland today.

:54:00.:54:03.

Thousands of spectators arrived on the south coast to cheer run Ben

:54:03.:54:07.

Ainslie as he began his quest to win a fourth consecutive gold medal.

:54:07.:54:10.

Yesterday, we heard from our sailing team that Britain had medal

:54:10.:54:15.

hopes in all 10 events. Three of them started today. Let's go to

:54:15.:54:19.

surely for an update. Yes, it has been an exciting day.

:54:19.:54:26.

Two returning gold medallists are in action, Ben Ainslie, and Iain

:54:26.:54:30.

Percy and John Simpson. Here we have Stephen Park. Ben normally has

:54:31.:54:36.

a fault at the start of the Olympic Games, but today was a really good

:54:36.:54:40.

opening. A solid start for Ben today, so we are pleased that the

:54:40.:54:47.

regatta has up and running and he has got away safely. Unusually, as

:54:47.:54:51.

you say, for Ben, he is not going home scratching his head about what

:54:51.:54:58.

will come tomorrow. Sailing downwind is his ace. He is

:54:58.:55:04.

definitely the fastest downwind. There were shifty winds ab there.

:55:04.:55:13.

It is not half -- our preferred area. There is no doubt that the

:55:13.:55:17.

Danish team sailed very well. But Ben had some incredible downwind

:55:17.:55:21.

speed to keep himself in the game in both races. Another senior

:55:21.:55:26.

member of your team was in action, Iain Percy and Andrew Simpson. I

:55:26.:55:32.

felt for them. Really tough. They managed to get themselves up to

:55:32.:55:35.

third at the end of the first lap and then up to first, leading the

:55:35.:55:42.

race. That second race, that close PhotoFinish, what action. He sued

action. They were coming down. Ben had that fantastic battle in Sydney,

:55:50.:55:55.

and it really was a photo finish. We have been key aquarium with the

:55:55.:55:59.

race teams as to who did get that first place, and the results have

:55:59.:56:02.

changed a couple of times. We just want to make sure they have got it

:56:02.:56:08.

correct, which they are keen to do. Did it all come down to who got the

:56:08.:56:13.

final wave that pumped them into the finish line? Yes, and it will

:56:13.:56:19.

be like that all week, particularly in that class. The start classes

:56:19.:56:23.

fall off fantastic sailors, many of them multiple medalists. We will

:56:23.:56:27.

see that from now until the end of the regatta. Plenty more action

:56:27.:56:33.

tomorrow. Ben and Andrew will be back in action. But Evra will be

:56:33.:56:43.
:56:43.:56:44.

keen to see -- everyone will be keen to see the Finn class. And the

:56:44.:56:49.

match-racing girls had their first two races today. They did. They

:56:49.:56:54.

sailed well, so they are pleased with their day. The top 12 teams in

:56:54.:56:58.

the world were there. Any of those guys could deliver a top

:56:58.:57:03.

performance. Lucy, Annie and Kate have done fantastically in the run-

:57:03.:57:07.

up to this event. They come into it as silver medalists from the world

:57:07.:57:11.

championships. They had a solid start, and it was good to get their

:57:11.:57:16.

first day under their belt. A solid start. Plenty more action tomorrow

:57:16.:57:25.

here in Weymouth. Our returning gold medallists are back racing.

:57:25.:57:32.

Stevie Morrison and Ben Rhodes. It is a busy day on the water. Five

:57:32.:57:35.

classes at Weymouth. We will keep an eye on that tomorrow. Apologies

:57:35.:57:41.

but we were not able to bring you the archery final. It went to China.

:57:41.:57:46.

They beat South Korea by just one point. That's it from me. Gary will

:57:46.:57:51.

be back shortly on BBC One. Coming up at 8:15pm, Becky Adlington

:57:51.:57:59.

defends her 400m Olympic title, but up against the Olympic -- the world
