Michael Jamieson stormed into the 200m breaststroke final in a new
British record time. Andrew Willis also qualified. Great Britain's
eventing team including Zara Phillips won a Super absinthe --
silver medal behind Germany at Greenwich Park. Tina Cook and Mary
King just missed out on a second medal in the individual equestrian

World number one David Florence was knocked out in the semi-finals as
Tony Estanguet won gold in the We start with basketball. Before we
see Team GB's men in action let's meet their star man. He plays in
the NBA for the Chicago Bulls and made history by becoming the first
Briton to be selected for the There is the good and the bad, a
good part is definitely playing basketball at the highest level. I
don't like sitting with the media. I would rather go out and nobody
recognise me, the guide at the back with a heart on, nobody coming up
to me. In a simple manner he sums up life as an NBA superstar.
But his life has been anything but simple. He is a superstar in the
United States with the Chicago Bulls, the team made famous by
Michael Jordan. An all-star of the NBA. President Obama calls him an
inspiration. It is incredible what he has done. He is British, the
highest paid British oarsmen in the world and a weekly wage if eclipses

in Brixton he is barely recognised. If you were to drop me in London

that. When it comes to football, I would admit I am pretty good. I was
just watching the England Italy match. There is a flashback that
comes through, and you wonder, if there. Football wasn't his destiny.
Certainly not once he met the irresistible force that is Jimmy

I have seen both sides of the world. I have been on bedside. I was a
refugee and had nothing. I ate no - - I own a lot of money and I am
known, the balance is not fair. Giving back to south Sudan, the
place of his birth. The world's youngest country, struggling to
emerge from the brutal war of independence. Everyone of you guys
is capable of being somebody special, what ever you dream in
your head, whatever you want to be, maybe you will be the president of
this country, and one day you will lead us, be the leader of a great
country. And right now giving back to British basketball. It is a
special time for us, all the kids that love basketball can stand out
and say that is their team. What feeling when you have when he runs
out for Team GB? I will be very proud, something I never thought I
would see in my lifetime. The guys on the team are the same guys I
grew up with, they all we said one day we will put British basketball

difference. Taking hits, recreating a tough job. Concentrating on him,

give away any extra points. That led directly to another opportunity

the most boring ways. They did everything that had to be done.
That was knocked away. The basket No want went with him. They went
patiently with the pick and the role. Garcia again knocks it away.
That is a foolish foul. Fouling Luol Deng. He knows he has got to
get the shot off. It is too important to have car seal on the
bench at this crucial time. -- Andrew Sullivan comes in, he has
been a very good defender. A lot of strategy going on. Brazil putting

during these kind of corners, that is a brilliant routine. Excellent,
for Korea from a penalty corner. They moved to a pitch, using the
full length. Good save. It couldn't stop the second one. It is 3-2,
good strike. Disappointment now would turn into a bit of worry.

loud and better than ever. All the cheering, it really spurs us on.
Great game. Great Britain reclaim Great game. Great Britain reclaim
top spot ahead of the Dutch on goal difference. The next match is then
faced Belgium at 7pm on Thursday. You can watch that rival BBC Three.
The Olympic flame burns. Verities. And you are on BBC One very shortly.
Another stellar line-up. I had Stella! John McEnroe, Michael
Johnson,. You are you know he should get, or boat, Chad le Clos's
father. We put the request in. He is going
through drug testing at the moment. I hope you get them on, his dad was
sensational. The moment of the day, that will

One silver today. The gold rush starts tomorrow.
We hope so. No pressure, Bradley Wiggins.
