Welcome to Olympic Park. We will be heading back to the gymnastics. The


news today is Britain has one two gold medals. Helen Glover and


Heather Stanning won gold in rowing. Bradley Wiggins has won the Olympic


gold in the time trial, cheered on by over 300,000 people on the


streets of south-west London. Gymnastics on BBC Two, but plenty


of Sport happening elsewhere. On BBC Three they are concentrating on


the tennis. Andy Murray lost the opening set. It is now in the third


set in the match against Marcos Baghdatis. Over the next hour we


will enjoy the battle for the gold medal in the men's all-around final.


Kristian Thomas and Daniel Purvis performing well. We can now go back

legs drop. He let an angle come in his shoulders. What a shame for


Daniel Purvis. It is tough skill, and you have to have it spot on.

well in the team competition. All this work is lovely, but when you

the team final. It just makes you wonder how all of that euphoria can


affect. It is, you need to be clean and straight in that arm. It wasn't


locked out. You cannot push back from there. It just drag you off


line and then you are standing on the 4th. He did well after that. --

medal, I think. If he carries on like this and wins the gold medal,


which would be great to see, it really will be quite a triumph.


Because he is not at his best. To be able to pull yourself together


when you are not at your best and do this well, then you are a pretty


impressive character. Look at his toe point, every double it is


perfect. Natural style. Natural exactly. I was watching footage of


him at when he was about three or four years old and he was bouncing


down this track somersaulting time after time, time after time. It is


a natural talent out. Along with a lot of training and good coaching,


but what he brings to it is a little bit something special of his


own. The first group including Kristian Thomas, John Orozco, and


lots of unhappy faces. We have to say this. Lots of gymnasts having a


difficult time. Third day of competition. They have done team

bit. He has absolutely bags of difficulty. Possibly a little bit


more than he can do easily. I am sure he can cut back a bit and be


successful. He is not that far ahead of his team mate. Not that


much room to play with. When you look at first and second, you


wonder how they did not managed to rotation. Showing every bit of


class there. Not a flashy gymnast. I was going to say very efficient,


and then he comes in efficient by a sliding out of the area. They do

Well performed. Over half way through. It is incredible the


number of mistakes that have occurred out there. Lots of


pressure. Marcel Nguyen is in third. He has developed into a very good


all round gymnast. His coach must be very proud of this young man,


the progress he has made. Clean and and he is up on his feet. What a


cracker. What a connection before the code badge. That it was


something. He was flying. He came with full twist. A bit all over the


place, but he rode on his luck. Marcel Nguyen is going after the

very first time we have seen him play safe. The first time we have


seen him want to win enough to hold back and go for the safe routine.


He will have seen what happened to his team-mate, Tanaka, one floor.


He sat that out and lost a whole mark. Uchimura, no need to squeeze


in the extra difficulty. Mind you, he had plenty of difficulty in


the straight back somersault all over the bar with faults and --

classy work -- efficient routine. He has finally turned up to the

difficult competition, to produce more like he is capable of -- he

swing. And the double pike with a Marcel Nguyen is in second -- in

in the rankings. -- a score in the 15s. Belyavskiy is into 4th. Purvis


is down in 14th. Kristian Thomas is sort of lead has intimated -- one


apparatus to go, what sort of lead has Uchimura got? Kohei Uchimura,


well ahead of Tanaka in second, with Marcel and I am clinging on in


there for bronze. -- Marcel Nguyen little bit higher, as well as


Tommasone. There are some big names down the order. We can't stress


enough how well those British guys have done. Big names down into 20th,


18th. There is not much room between Tanaka and Nguyen, either.


But if Uchimura can go without major deductions, he has got it.


Not the dominant see we have seen - - not the dominance we have seen


but I would be pleased if he can get the reward for the work he has


done. I think every gymnast would think like you, he is the gymnasts


gymnast. He really does exemplified all that is best about the sport.


He is clean, hard working, and his style is from a different planet.


When he is on song. Kristian Thomas, warming up on the high bar, you can


see how tall he is, they have to move the mats so that he can swing


without kicking them. Kristian Thomas is 1.3 to five outside the


medals. And he lost at least one mark on the vault landing. His


vaults score was 1.5 marks less than he scored in the team final.


Go you are saying if he did what he did in qualification, he would be


has done a great job, they both have. It's not over yet. There is


still an awful lot that can happen. As we have seen, in the blink of an


eye. It is always a good piece of apparatus to finish on, the high


bar. That is why the high as qualifiers are in this first group.


They start on the floor and then finish on the high bar. I think


there is a good chance we won't see the winner coming from this group


and it will be on the floor, the winner finishes. Combe Hay Itchen


Laura finish so poorly, he wasn't in the top six. Marcel Nguyen, who


is in bronze medal position at the moment, will be the last gymnast on


the floor. I like him, he has come up steadily. He has been the unsung


hero in the German team. Hambuchen has always been the star. When


Hambuchen was out, Philipp Boy took the limelight. Marcel Nguyen has


been hidden away behind the per of them. As far as the Olympics is


concerned, Germany have only had one silver, one gold medal and one


bronze medal. He is joining a very exclusive club. If he goes through.


There is quite a lot of work to be done for everyone. I would rather


finish on the floor than the high bar. The margin for error!


Definitely. I don't know why, maybe it is psychological. You seemed


closest to the floor. In the women's, you do finish on the floor.

wraps up his competition. Is the pommel horse going to be kind?


Probably the hardest to finish on. But that was very smooth. He has


good extension forwards on his hips. Very nice technique. But, my


goodness me. How easy to let a medal slip away. The medal has gone.


Japan had a nightmare in the team final on this piece of apparatus.


It is exactly what happened last time. It looked like he was nowhere


near. There is nothing you can do. When the spring breaks down, there


is little you can do to rescue it. But the crowd are behind him.


do not start again, you carry on from way you finished. You have to


be better than before to make up for everything. Working his way


through into the dismount, seeing if he can still be a top 10 gymnast.


What a disappointment. Hugely disappointing for him. The door is


opened. Kristian Thomas the Great Britain, his last piece of


apparatus in his all-around final. His performance in the Europeans


are rescued Britain's team hopes to get them the gold. And can he do


the same here? Very high and very clean. He is going very well. This


Kristian Thomas. Nailing his dismount is becoming his trademark.


What a job from him. A fantastic performance again from Kristian


Thomas. He will be so disappointed his favourite piece really let him


down today. He has qualified for vault final and knows he can do one


of the best in the world. And the other five apparatus have been


immaculate. He has worked better than I have seen him perform on the


other five. Very strong. His feet The last release, he catches with a


mixed grip. 15 scored. As such a shame for his fault. Daniel Purvis


good combination, twisting his way through and steady on his feet.


This is what is needed for a last piece. He can get it 15 on this


apparatus, he has done it so many times are. Steady in the Japanese a


handstand. Trademark combination. It was so easily done. Daniel


Purvis finishing on his strongest piece of apparatus. Daniel Purvis


it brings the curtain down on an interesting all round competitions.


He has done a good job to rescue that on the last piece of apparatus.


Impressive gymnastics from Great Britain. Even when the chips were


down and it did not go right. They don't throw the towel in, they


fight on and see the day-out. Performing their best work. Even


when it has not gone quite so exciting on the high bar. He


might not have been at his best elsewhere. But here we go. Hall


straight into the front somersault, but it it was wild. He didn't even


get a momentary hang. He just slapped the bar and down he went.


He did not hold on for any amount of time. He was too low and his


body weight it was under the bar. Talking of falling. The Japanese

is 12.842, to go ahead of Mykola Kuksenkov, who has moved into first.


The smile on his face as he landed said it all. We do have some other


gymnasts to go who could go ahead of Mykola Kuksenkov. I think we


could safely say we are looking at the Olympic champion. It is good


for men's gymnastics. Three-times world champion, he deserves the


Olympic title. It wasn't a faultless performance. David Bayley

straight over to congratulate. is interesting is the way that all


of the gymnasts are congratulating each other. It is a great


atmosphere down there. Leyva came through. Marcel Nguyen came through


as well. What a thriller, what a finale. Three super gymnasts, with


different strengths. Wonderful to see Uchimura on the top of the pile,


where he deserves to be. He it is Uchimura, yet to be beaten


internationally. What a gymnast yet to be beaten in four years. He had


to come back strong and he showed what a champion he is. He had us on


the edge of our seats, up until today. You wouldn't have put your


house on it, he came through an really showed us what he is capable


of. What a thrilling finale. All of the places jumbled about, before we


could talk about silver and bronze. That is the way it a competition


should be. Because so many of the men have real strengths, it is a


bit of a jumble until the end. Going into the end, Marcel Nguyen


could never have wished of a silver going up against those gymnasts.


The USA have two goals and a silver in this event, Danell Leyva made a


bit of a history for the first from the ISA to get a bronze in the all-


around -- the USA have got two We all questions and coming into


this competition, could he possibly win gold. -- we all questioned


Uchimura coming into this competition. He has come through


and has deserve to be Olympic champion. Daniel Purvis finished in


13th, Kristian Thomas finished in 7th. That is a very impressive


result, top 10. Our best ever previous to this has been 20th. One


in the top 10, 7th and 13th, it is history for Great Britain as well.

is a great atmosphere out here, take a look at all of these people.


There are thousands of people here at Olympic Park. Many of them will


be heading over there to the Aquatics Centre. If you had asked


us at the beginning of the Olympic Games wear a gold medal would come


from, you would think it would come from one of the women's team. In


actual fact, they are at 7:30pm. Michael Jamieson is the fastest


qualifier in the breaststroke. Thank you for the tune, I am just


getting into this feature! Michael Jamieson could win another gold


This is your time, isn't it? certainly hope so. I have got the

has probably been more of I focus because I am trying to develop the


front end speed which will help me go up faster over the first half.


Every race at the Olympics is difficult but the breaststroke is


quite open. It could be a fantastic opportunity. Definitely. That is


the way I am looking at it. We don't have an event where we have a


Michael Phelps, there is no doubt about favourite for the event. One


or two guys have got a bit of daylight between me and the chasing


pack. That consists of 68 swimmers just under 2.10. Kitajima is going


for a special record. It will be great to race him, he is the best


breaststroker of all time but someone has got to beat him and


there will be a few guys gunning for him. I am thoroughly looking


forward to getting in the pool with him.


COMMENTATOR: The first semi-final and Jamieson, looking good. I am


coming into my peak. COMMENTATOR: Jamieson touches first,
