Welcome back. The long wait for British gold is over. Day five has


given us much to cheer. Bradley Wiggins struck gold in the time-


trial to become Britain's most decorated Olympia with seven medals.


Chris Froome won bronze. But his gold was not the first of the Games,


that came courtesy of Helen Glover and Heather Stanning who won the


women's pair in the rowing. GB's men's eight were also amongst the


medals at Eton Dorney, they took bronze behind Germany and Canada.


Scott Michael Jamieson claimed a superb silver in the men's 200m


breaststroke. It took a world record from Daniel Gyurta to beat


him. The gymnastics has kept us thoroughly entertained. Today was


the men's all-around final. Observe thing for us were Matt Baker, Mitch


Senna and Christine Still. Welcome to the North Greenwich Arena for


the men's individual all-around final which involves two British


gymnasts. Let's listen to the roar of. The first of his six pieces of


apparatus. Consistency is the key the Arabian, very light of touch on


the landing. Two-and-a-half twists, into the full twist, very nicely


done. This is crucial. Very nicely moment. Then the final double


Arabia. That will do very nicely indeed. Kristian Thomas, what a


start, terrific. What a start with five pieces to go. It is a big


score. Daniel Purvis with his first piece. A tiny bit of bent knees,


but he is swinging beautifully now. Keep your feet together. He lost


form slightly, but this routine is big difficulty. He looks totally


determined. Well done. Well done in did. That was a good, battling


performance. He will be pleased to have it over with. This is after


the first piece of apparatus. This man has made her real name for


himself over the past few days. Keep it going. Very difficult


triple Russian between the handles. Into triple Russian on the end.


This is nice, just keep it going. That was really nice work from


something approaching 16. Absolutely precise. Not a step


wrong. I think he means business today. He is fed up with feeling


sorry for himself. A huge score. Two-and-a-half twists, but a little


bit off direction. Having such a great competition so far. This is a


big routine for him. It is indeed. His physique is not enormously


suited to rings, but he held that with utter determination. No


They arrest and rise into the Swinging moods. That is what he is


good at. He must control the dismount as well. Well done, that


family. He has a sister in the Japanese women's team. His full


turn was late, but he did very well. He had to struggle to get the


the double pike and a little skip backwards. Some lovely, light,


swinging touches. That is a good score. We are half way round. He


got Great Britain that bronze. Hoping for something very similar


here. I am glad it is you commentating on this one. What a


shame! He just squeezed into hard. That is his first mistake in the


whole competition. Can he keep his composure? So much at stake. Two


pieces after this one. Usually a very solid high bar worker. That


was a very nice out into handstand. The back somersault with full twist.


Worked really well. Now that close elements in the turns. He needs to


That will be very costly. He will struggle now. This is the current


something to date. That was the combination. Just a little hop


forward. There is that pencil sharp shape that we have come to love. A


brilliant performance. He can sniff gold. Without surprise he is in


gold medal position ahead of his all-around gymnast. His coach must


be very proud of this young man. Luckily, clean, crisp openers. A


the catch, but, my goodness me, he is going. What a cracker. Look at


the smile. My word! That was something. He was flying.


certainly was. So much was expected of him and he looks quite heavy


hearted. But this is his real strong peace, this and high bar.


Just look at the time he has on the apparatus. He generates height from


it. He is another very stylish gymnast. Legs always locked


together. For a tour gymnast this is very nice. He will be very happy


with that. That looks more like it. He knew he had to do the


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


is desperately trying to do everything he can to get into the


medals. That is why he is the world champion. Extra bounce and extra

tentative. A fault was given. Uchimura has been off his game.

performance, if ever I have seen one. Fantastic. He is going to be

comfortably beat Argentina in the opening game of Group A. Today they


face South Africa, and were watched by our commentators Sean Curly and

Still very much in the thick of things. Let's turn our attention to


water polo and Team GB against Australia. If you see a player with


bloodshot eyes, it is not from the chlorine, it is because this is the


only sport where the players give motivation against Australia

Francesca Snell scored a beautiful goal against Russia. Just not there.


They have drawn the exclusion. The fowls are beginning to rack up now


She had quite a quiet game. What a lovely shot. She is one of the


players that Great Britain women will have to watch. They will have


to find a way to nullify her threat. She was not too good against


Australia, did not put too many in. But she is on form tonight. GB need


a goal before the end of the first quarter to give them a foothold and


give them some confidence in this game. They get another 30 seconds,

Australians won in the end by 16-3. A second consecutive defeat. But

clear evening. And you are in the studio. I just crept in again.
