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

:00:34.:00:40.

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

:00:40.:00:47.

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

:00:47.:00:51.

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

:00:51.:00:56.

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

:00:56.:01:00.

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

:01:00.:01:07.

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

:01:07.:01:12.

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

:01:12.:01:16.

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

:01:17.:01:22.

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

:01:22.:01:32.
:01:32.:01:44.

difficulty here. So Ertel has into a beautiful handstand. He let his

:01:44.:01:51.

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

:01:51.:02:01.

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

:02:01.:02:06.

struggled a bit in training at the start of the week. Performed it

:02:06.:02:11.

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

:02:11.:02:17.

have already given away a mark to the judges, it is difficult to

:02:17.:02:25.

build a big score. He is certainly showing his class. Very nice

:02:25.:02:31.

dismount. -- dismount. He did the most incredible job for the men in

:02:31.:02:39.

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

:02:39.:02:47.

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

:02:47.:02:55.

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

:02:55.:03:03.

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

:03:03.:03:12.

standing on the floor. Such a disappointment for him. They have

:03:12.:03:21.

had a busy time of it. Indeed they have. Since their bronze medal they

:03:21.:03:25.

have had press conferences galore. It takes their toll because they

:03:25.:03:35.
:03:35.:03:35.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 47 seconds

:03:35.:04:23.

young man is on song. Brilliant performance. He can sniff the gold

:04:23.:04:30.

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

:04:30.:04:34.

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

:04:34.:04:38.

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

:04:38.:04:43.

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

:04:43.:04:50.

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

:04:50.:04:57.

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

:04:57.:05:02.

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

:05:02.:05:08.

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

:05:08.:05:15.

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

:05:15.:05:19.

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

:05:19.:05:27.

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

:05:27.:05:35.

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

:05:36.:05:41.

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

:05:41.:05:46.

qualifier, which they had to do to be here. The team final, individual

:05:46.:05:56.
:05:56.:05:56.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 47 seconds

:05:56.:06:37.

final. Since it started it has been field. We did not expect this.

:06:37.:06:47.
:06:47.:07:19.

Japanese. His high iBar has not looked as sharp as it does normally.

:07:19.:07:26.

He has just come off preparation. wonder if he will cut back a little

:07:26.:07:32.

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

:07:32.:07:37.

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

:07:38.:07:44.

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

:07:44.:07:48.

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

:07:48.:07:58.
:07:58.:08:06.

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

:08:06.:08:14.

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

:08:14.:08:24.
:08:24.:08:24.

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

:08:24.:08:34.
:08:34.:09:03.

there will be small deductions for seen a few come to grief on that.

:09:03.:09:09.

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

:09:09.:09:13.

number of mistakes that have occurred out there. Lots of

:09:13.:09:23.
:09:23.:09:23.

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

:09:23.:09:32.

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

:09:32.:09:42.
:09:42.:10:12.

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

:10:12.:10:20.

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

:10:20.:10:30.
:10:30.:10:58.

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

:10:58.:11:03.

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

:11:03.:11:10.

silver now. Danell Leyva, so much was expected of him. He looks heavy

:11:10.:11:18.

hearted. This is his best piece, this and high bar. Up into a very

:11:18.:11:28.
:11:28.:11:31.

nice handstand. He is another very stylish gymnast. Legs always locked

:11:31.:11:41.
:11:41.:11:45.

together. Foyer told gymnast, that is very nice parallel bar work. He

:11:45.:11:50.

will be very happy with that. knew he had to do the performance

:11:50.:11:56.

of his life. He is the world champion on the parallel bars. He

:11:56.:12:01.

is trying everything he can to get into the medals. He has high bar to

:12:01.:12:11.
:12:11.:12:16.

come. He swings so well. That was a giant with 1.5 turns. Amazing work.

:12:16.:12:22.

A long way round when you what all. But it can pay off because you can

:12:22.:12:30.

look so elegant. Look at the consistency, other than the pommel

:12:30.:12:40.
:12:40.:12:40.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 47 seconds

:12:40.:13:27.

years old. He is chasing down his roll-out. He has extra bounce and

:13:27.:13:37.
:13:37.:14:15.

out then? Getting on with it. Beautifully done. How unfortunate.

:14:15.:14:20.

What a shame, that penultimate tumble. I think he was a bit

:14:20.:14:28.

tentative. Maybe he didn't attack it enough. Look at the Scott for

:14:28.:14:38.
:14:38.:14:38.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 47 seconds

:14:38.:15:22.

Danell Leyva. That is why he is the Difficult to land, you do not see

:15:22.:15:28.

the floor. His competition isn't over yet. He was a bit ragged at

:15:28.:15:37.

the beginning of that exercise, but tightened up as he went on. I think

:15:37.:15:47.
:15:47.:15:53.

he sat right down. I think it will deduction. Yes, a hallmark has been

:15:53.:15:59.

given. The thing about six pieces of apparatus, you cannot make

:15:59.:16:09.
:16:09.:16:11.

predictions. Tanaka, still ahead of Danell Leyva, and Marcel Nguyen.

:16:11.:16:18.

The Ukrainians wing on the parallel bars so well. -- swing on. Every

:16:18.:16:28.

nation has a favourite apparatus. That is a tough one. The double

:16:28.:16:38.
:16:38.:16:40.

front, very difficult. It puts him into third, what a performance from

:16:40.:16:49.

Kuksenkov. Third behind and giant, Uchimura still to come. -- third

:16:49.:16:57.

behind Nguyen. Kristian Thomas on his penultimate piece of apparatus.

:16:57.:17:06.

Huge support here for him. This is an interesting start to the routine.

:17:06.:17:12.

The nicely done, a quarter turn in, bent arms, but that is OK, tiny

:17:12.:17:21.

deductions. He just need to keep the swing. Very unusual technique.

:17:21.:17:31.
:17:31.:17:52.

the somersault, and he is going the cut to handstand. Standing up.

:17:52.:18:02.
:18:02.:18:06.

about his composure so much over the last few days, and how he

:18:06.:18:10.

managed to achieve what he did. It was the same with this lad, Dan

:18:10.:18:20.
:18:20.:18:29.

Purvis. Doing wonders for British very nicely with full turn, a up

:18:29.:18:34.

across the bar, a lovely catch on straight arms. -- a hop across the

:18:34.:18:43.

bar, a cop with the full term. And that was very nicely done, he

:18:43.:18:50.

caught beautifully high. The in out with a hope that, one and a half-

:18:51.:18:57.

turn again, he is very efficient on these poets -- with a hop for it.

:18:57.:19:07.
:19:07.:19:20.

disappointing parallel bars. British gymnasts are really proving

:19:20.:19:24.

they are amongst the best in the world. They have earned their place

:19:24.:19:34.
:19:34.:19:39.

in the top class, they are at Uchimura. He raises his arm, he

:19:39.:19:49.
:19:49.:19:50.

the competition that this is the big test for them. He has been off

:19:50.:20:00.
:20:00.:20:04.

rescue it, big release, is he going to full turn? Yes he does. The

:20:04.:20:14.
:20:14.:20:30.

straight body Kovac with full twist. One and a half-turn. Very wise

:20:31.:20:36.

decision from Uchimura. Double, double. He is on his feet and that

:20:36.:20:44.

is a champion's performance if ever I have seen one. Fantastic.

:20:44.:20:49.

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

:20:49.:20:53.

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

:20:53.:20:57.

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

:20:57.:21:04.

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

:21:04.:21:09.

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

:21:09.:21:19.
:21:19.:21:23.

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

:21:23.:21:33.
:21:33.:21:34.

with full turn. He it is in a class of his own. Lots of flight. He and

:21:34.:21:40.

there, the double double opens out at the top of the twist. And float

:21:40.:21:48.

down. Beautifully done. He did play safe but it was a very clever

:21:48.:21:56.

decision. 15.6, it is going to be over one mark ahead of his team

:21:56.:22:05.

mate. He is well in the lead now. Some more scores for you. Kristian

:22:05.:22:12.

Thomas Court 14.733. Daniel Purvis, 14.5 -- Kristian Thomas scored

:22:12.:22:22.
:22:22.:22:27.

sat down on his vault, who he will want to show of the showman side.

:22:27.:22:33.

That puts it into perspective. Every one of these guys is

:22:33.:22:37.

susceptible to a mistake. Six routines have to be done well and

:22:37.:22:42.

he has missed two of them. He can swing this piece, and he can

:22:42.:22:52.
:22:52.:23:01.

routine. -- pirouette to start the routine. He shows his control into

:23:01.:23:11.
:23:11.:23:13.

the somersault. He is another really classy gymnast. He keeps

:23:13.:23:23.
:23:23.:23:32.

those legs locked together, he difficulty after another. Really

:23:32.:23:36.

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

:23:37.:23:46.
:23:47.:23:55.

eighth. This is good work, he has kept his brokers through a very

:23:55.:23:59.

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

:23:59.:24:04.

has kept his focus. A nice double tuck from support, keeping his

:24:04.:24:14.
:24:14.:24:36.

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

:24:36.:24:46.
:24:46.:24:54.

hamstrings, ready for floor. And Bastien, 15.4 -- ham Buchan, --

:24:54.:25:04.
:25:04.:25:17.

good on this piece of apparatus. would have tipped to this young man

:25:17.:25:25.

to be higher than he is. It is lovely work, a good opener. Two

:25:25.:25:34.

very clean skills. Into the tip out, a standard school these days. --

:25:34.:25:38.

skill. A little dip in the arms. Difficult to get the straight arms

:25:38.:25:46.

to get the swing from it. That is nice and easy, a swinging Healy to

:25:46.:25:56.
:25:56.:26:02.

He is bang centre in the middle of the bars. The double pike dismount,

:26:02.:26:06.

he needed to be there to get maximum reaction from the rails,

:26:06.:26:16.
:26:16.:26:32.

parallel bar work. It looks more like high bar every day. Here we go,

:26:32.:26:37.

it's lovely double pike front somersault. Very spatially aware.

:26:37.:26:47.
:26:47.:27:12.

Knows exactly when the floor is 15th can make a lot of difference

:27:12.:27:22.
:27:22.:27:25.

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

:27:25.:27:35.
:27:35.:27:49.

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

:27:49.:27:58.

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

:27:58.:28:03.

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

:28:03.:28:13.
:28:13.:28:40.

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

:28:40.:28:45.

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

:28:45.:28:50.

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

:28:50.:29:00.
:29:00.:29:01.

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

:29:01.:29:11.
:29:11.:29:12.

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

:29:12.:29:18.

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

:29:18.:29:22.

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

:29:22.:29:27.

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

:29:27.:29:33.

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

:29:33.:29:39.

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

:29:40.:29:46.

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

:29:46.:29:51.

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

:29:51.:29:59.

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

:29:59.:30:09.
:30:09.:30:10.

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

:30:10.:30:16.

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

:30:16.:30:20.

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

:30:20.:30:30.
:30:30.:30:42.

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

:30:42.:30:47.

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

:30:47.:30:57.
:30:57.:30:58.

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

:30:59.:31:03.

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

:31:03.:31:09.

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

:31:09.:31:12.

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

:31:12.:31:22.
:31:22.:31:23.

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

:31:23.:31:32.

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

:31:32.:31:37.

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

:31:37.:31:45.

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

:31:45.:31:51.

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

:31:51.:31:57.

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

:31:57.:32:03.

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

:32:03.:32:08.

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

:32:08.:32:15.

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

:32:15.:32:23.

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

:32:23.:32:28.

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

:32:28.:32:37.

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

:32:37.:32:47.
:32:47.:32:47.

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

:32:47.:32:57.
:32:57.:32:57.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 47 seconds

:32:57.:33:52.

It is the PC practice the most Later again but he is going well. -

:33:53.:34:02.
:34:03.:34:07.

- very late. Just a little Hopp forward. He is through. Still in

:34:07.:34:13.

the top 10. Marcel Nguyen eager to get on the floor. He has a bit of a

:34:13.:34:23.
:34:23.:34:38.

because he is in the third group. What is in store for him as he

:34:38.:34:48.
:34:48.:34:48.

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

:34:48.:34:55.

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

:34:55.:35:05.
:35:05.:35:10.

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

:35:10.:35:20.
:35:20.:35:21.

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

:35:21.:35:26.

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

:35:26.:35:31.

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

:35:31.:35:38.

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

:35:38.:35:48.
:35:48.:35:50.

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

:35:50.:35:56.

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

:35:56.:36:01.

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

:36:01.:36:10.

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

:36:10.:36:16.

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

:36:16.:36:24.

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

:36:24.:36:31.

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

:36:31.:36:35.

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

:36:35.:36:45.
:36:45.:36:53.

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

:36:53.:37:03.
:37:03.:37:19.

Kristian Thomas. Nailing his dismount is becoming his trademark.

:37:19.:37:26.

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

:37:26.:37:31.

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

:37:32.:37:37.

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

:37:37.:37:42.

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

:37:42.:37:47.

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

:37:47.:37:57.
:37:57.:38:25.

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

:38:25.:38:35.
:38:35.:38:36.

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

:38:36.:38:46.
:38:46.:38:57.

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

:38:57.:39:07.
:39:07.:39:11.

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

:39:11.:39:19.

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

:39:19.:39:29.
:39:29.:39:33.

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

:39:33.:39:41.

Purvis finishing on his strongest piece of apparatus. Daniel Purvis

:39:41.:39:46.

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

:39:46.:39:53.

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

:39:53.:39:58.

Impressive gymnastics from Great Britain. Even when the chips were

:41:03.:41:08.

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

:41:08.:41:14.

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

:43:06.:43:12.

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

:43:12.:43:17.

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

:43:17.:43:24.

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

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

and he is clean. Clear of the bar. A little turn over the top, a big

wind up, a change of body shape, here it comes, double double, and

:47:47.:47:51.

Mr Leyva, you have shown you can cope with some pressure. A great

:47:51.:48:01.
:48:01.:48:01.

finish from him. It is very good. He needs a 15.433 to go into second.

:48:01.:48:09.

He has got that. Belyavskiy, third at the moment. Leyva's score is not

:48:42.:48:46.

He looks like you would not have any power but he is really strong.

He twists beautifully, lots of power, an excellent second pass. A

:48:53.:49:03.
:49:03.:49:05.

little bounce across his back. He has to control, hold. He shows lots

:49:05.:49:10.

of confidence. There is a lot of noise in the arena, he is holding

:49:10.:49:20.
:49:20.:49:39.

his focus. The whip been to the one he make it to the finish? That was

:49:39.:49:46.

a big challenge for a medal. Lovely work from it and I am, he is a

:49:46.:49:51.

cracking gymnast, he is coming into maturity -- lovely work from and I

:49:51.:50:01.
:50:01.:50:19.

That is some score. If Marcel Nguyen were can get over 14.967, he

will go ahead of Leyva. That would be very interesting, to have

:51:28.:51:34.

thought for a moment it was silver. He is down in bronze. Uchimura,

:51:34.:51:39.

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

:51:39.:51:43.

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

:51:43.:51:48.

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

:51:48.:51:55.

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

:51:55.:52:00.

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

:52:00.:52:10.
:52:10.:52:16.

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

:52:16.:52:24.

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

:52:24.:52:30.

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

:52:30.:52:33.

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

:52:34.:52:39.

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

:52:39.:52:47.

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

:52:47.:52:51.

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

:52:51.:52:57.

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

:52:57.:53:02.

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

:53:02.:53:09.

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

:53:09.:53:14.

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

:53:14.:53:20.

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

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

:53:42.:53:46.

Uchimura coming into this competition. He has come through

:53:46.:53:54.

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

:53:54.:53:58.

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

:53:58.:54:04.

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

:54:04.:54:14.
:54:14.:54:15.

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

:54:15.:54:21.

Apart from 90 night, when we got a silver! -- apart from 1908, when we

:54:21.:54:31.

What a great champion Kohei Uchimura is. He is three times

getting into this feature! Michael Jamieson could win another gold

:56:00.:56:10.
:56:10.:56:15.

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

:56:45.:56:51.

see the 200? Definitely. It has always been my best ever. The 100

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

:56:55.:57:01.

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

:57:01.:57:04.

Every race at the Olympics is difficult but the breaststroke is

:57:04.:57:09.

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

:57:09.:57:14.

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

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

:57:37.:57:40.

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

:57:40.:57:43.

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

forward to getting in the pool with him.

:57:47.:57:52.

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