Welcome to Olympic Park. We have beach volleyball, the British women

women's team event gymnastics it is now on BBC Three for the final


rotation. But these are the headlines from today. Great Britain

it missed out on the individual medals. Good form at Eton Dorney

Just a reminder on BBC Three, the women's team final with the final


rotation and Beth Tweddle on the uneven bars. Plenty of options on


the red button as well, including tennis. We are now off to the beach


volleyball. We are fans of this. Are you ready for the music,


Mexican waves and the sport. Not what you would expect in the back


garden of Number Ten Downing Street. The British women kicked off their


campaign with an outstanding win against Canada. Zara Dampney and


Shauna Mullin face the European champions of Italy. We can join it

Britain. It refers ace for the British pair. Forcing the Italian

After the drama of Sunday afternoon, a nail-biting victory over the


Canadians, the crowds have come in expecting more of the same. It was


always going to be a tall order against the highly rated Italian


pair and so it has proved. Great Britain had them in check in the


first set but it has been a one- sided second. Menegatti serving.


Nothing is going right for Mullin This looks better. It was well


picked up. Menegatti was right there and she came sprinting

Horseguards Parade this afternoon. They have enjoyed the occasion.


Lots of noise and as ever a fabulous atmosphere. The Italians


have won in straight sets. What happened, you got off to an


absolute flyer? The crowd were amazing. The Italians played very


well. We needed to push further in the second set. We are disappointed,


but we need to pick ourselves up. It was an extremely tight first


set? We played well, but the second set, I could not hold up to the


pressure. You have played the Italians four times and you have


not beaten them. But you came out looking like you fancied it today?


We have usually had very good matches. We need to do what we did


in the first set a little bit more. If you had beaten the Italians, you


would have gone top of the group, are you confident you can get to


the final stage? We have Russia next on Thursday. We are going to


go home and watch the video, and work on it and come back fighting


on Thursday. This is my 8th venue of the London 2012 experience and


this is the best. This place rocks. The atmosphere is amazing. It is


amazing to have the home support, we don't have it very often and we


love it. We met this time last year for a test event, this place has


changed? 10 times more people. You get a great atmosphere on the court.


It is an amazing atmosphere and we have the best venue. Best of luck


on Thursday. Victory on Thursday will ensure


they go through to the knockout stage and even if they lose they


could go through as one of the 4th lucky losers. Another four gold


medals to be decided at the aquatic centre. Now the latest news from


the sailing. Defending Olympic champions, Andrew "Bart" Simpson


and Iain Percy were the only British sailors to shine.


We are in the heart of the competition and all three of our


Olympic defending gold-medallist are in action. Alison Young, 24


years old, one of the last to be picked for Team GB, had a day she


Young. Annelise Murphy from Ireland who has won every race so far won


first place and Alison Young was second. Ireland led around the top


and Annelise Murphy is going to lead around the bottom mark. About


to make it a number three, is she? Along way to go. As Great Britain


come round, Alison Young from Great Britain heart on her heels. Mexico


round at the same time. On the second downwind leg Alison Young


was feeling the pressure from behind. She held her nerve. Alison


Young, downwind and she was gaining. She is on a chase to the finish.


Annalisa Murphy fire and, when number three. The British sailor

copy of the third. The Irish sailor managed to sail away from the fleet


with Alison Young in the chasing pack. Alison Young needing all of


her tactical nous to see off her rival. Alison Young is in the


leading pack. Talking to Ben Ainslie and he has huge respect.


She is battling in the front of this fleet with the wind behind.


One boat to making the move, Spain is on the attack, forcing her to


swerve. Very aggressive sailing from the Spaniard. Other sailors in


this fleet are seeing the new girl as a real threat. Alison Young is


making her mark. The Irish sailor maintain her unblemished record in


Weymouth, taking her 4th win in a row. Alison Young, took another


second place, launching her up the overall standings to 4th. Many


people's favourite from the Netherlands inferred. Total


domination for Ireland. Alison Young had a fantastic day. -- in


It has been a tough day, but you were flying? Great day out there,


two seconds, and a great place to build the rest of the regatta from.


Did it feel as though a few nerves had settled down? I started better


today and made life a bit easier. How surprised are you by the Irish


girl? You don't expect someone to come to an Olympic regatta and win


the first four races on the bounce? She is quick in the breeze is, she


has proved that. Could you have envisaged before the regatta began


he would be in this position coming up to the halfway point? Definitely


not. There are so many good competitors. I have been trying to


take it race by race, not make many mistakes and keep it simple. We are


talking about how many British fans there are, but we saw quite a few


Irish fans, could you hear them? Yes, it was my family and any other


Irish people they could gather together.


Great excitement for Britain would Alison Young on the cusp of the top

were in action. There is a lot to Alison Young was good news, Iain


Percy and Andrew Simpson past the halfway mark in the regatta in


second place. With a day after Myra, Bayley the Star class by four


points. You have laid down a marker you are here with intent to defend


your title? We are definitely here to defend our title. They are only


four points behind and they won't stand by to let us have this one,


it will be a fight to the end. Things started well, but a capsize


ruin their chances later in the day. The only good news came in the form


of a capsize from their rivals, Australia. They ended up taking our


win, and we were not locked into the boat because we were coming out


of a manoeuvre. Basically made a mistake. The British trio had a


battle with the French medal hope. That went their way and they lie


joint 4th in their group. In the men's Laser, a story that started


badly for Paul Goodison yesterday when he could not get into the top


10, got even worse today when he came 16th. He rallied to post a


second place, but he emerged on the slipway almost in tears following


the reoccurrence of a back injury. Not the way his rival wants to take


the gold? I know he has had problems in the past with his back.


I want him to do well and I hope he gets some good physiotherapy


tonight and is feeling better tomorrow. We have had our


differences but you don't want to see anyone in pain. You probably


noticed that there is one sailor we have not told you about. Ben


Ainslie was back in action and he's has spent the last four races


behind the day in this -- Danish sailor. He was looking to


comfortable in the gold medal position and Ben Ainslie went out


to change that today. Head ing out to the Racecourse and


before the start Ben Ainslie had the Danish sailor in his sights.


Denmark look to be in clear wind at the bottom of your picture. It


wasn't a perfect start for Ben Ainslie. He is heading a way to the


other side of the course. Whilst he was struggling in 21st, the Danish


way in the leading pack. At the second mark, the great Dane was


leading, but Ben Ainslie had made ground. The Danish sailor rounds


the top mark. Ben Ainslie coming round. He will be in third place.


His see inside the Spanish solar? He is. He is a two-second and


chasing the man from Denmark. What can he do now. And what the wind


behind, Ben Ainslie is often in a class of his own. But at London


2012 he has met his match. Downwind with the wind behind, Ben Ainslie


is in a different league to everyone else. That is what we said


on the first day, but I don't think we are saying it now because the


Danish sailor is looking very slippery. The Danish sailor is


looking good upwind and down wind, it is troubling. Ben Ainslie


finished 4th. Denmark is about to finish. Race 5, then Mark when and


Ben Ainslie is inside the top five. It is a good result by any


standards, except the standards he set himself today. Today was about


going out to try and beat the Danish sailor who is getting a grip


on a class Ben Ainslie has dominated for so many years. The


Danish sailor has beaten Ben Ainslie in every single race.


the final race, things were much closer. 200m from the finish. Ben


Ainslie is in third. Can he get past the Danish sailor for the


first time? He is trying. He is not going to do it. Six races, Ainslie


beaten in every single one. That was better than yesterday. But this


Dame is proving elusive? He is sailing really well. He is on fire


at the moment. Where ever he goes on the course pays off. Credit to


him. I can only do the best I can do. I gave it everything today. It


was better, but it needs to be better for the remaining races.


is a strange position for you to be, because if you dismount your 12th


place, it is a good card? It is not bad, but it is about winning. In


most events, if you want to win you have to win a few races. I need to


pick the game up and hopefully get some better races. Be honest, have


you surprised yourself so far in this a Olympic regatta? Yes, for


sure. Coming in and after six races having won three of them and two


seconds, you could not ask for any more. I'm very happy and very


pleased and a little bit surprised. You have got a twinkle in your eye,


do you believe you can win this regatta? Yes, I do believe. I think


we talked before the regatta and I said I believe I could win it back


then as well. Now it is looking a bit better. They are still four


races to go, Ben Ainslie is not that far behind. It is still open.


We will take it will one day at a time, have a nice rest tomorrow and


be back on Thursday. You so often demonstrate an iron will to win, do


you believe you can still produce this magic moments we are so


craving on Sunday? I will keep going until the end, what ever


happens. It won't change. Hopefully he has had it all his way so far


this week, hopefully he has if you tough races. It is never over until


the fat lady sings. Let's hope the fat lady sings. Far Olympic knew, -


- new,, Alison Young a fantastic start. Concerned that Beijing gold-


medallist, Paul Goodison with his back injury. We wish him all the


best. For Ben Ainslie, he has passed the halfway stage and is yet


to beat his Danish rival. He has the day after Myra, so plenty of


time for contemplation. I don't know if you have seen the weather


forecast but it looks pretty windy in Weymouth and Portland. Whatever


happens, there will be plenty of We will be back with all of the

pad or her blood and she did first goal against Beth Storry in
