Thank you for joining us on BBC Two. We are off to the south-east coast

:00:31.:00:35.

for some sailing. Shirley Robertson is down at Weymouth for us. If

:00:35.:00:39.

you'd like to watch Andy marrow macro against Nicolas Almagro, you

:00:39.:00:47.

can do on BBC Three. -- Andy Murray. Shirley, good afternoon to you. Ben

:00:47.:00:51.

Ainslie is going for this fourth Olympic gold medal. You are bobbing

:00:51.:00:56.

around, I didn't realise you were actually out on the water - that's

:00:56.:01:03.

quite impressive! How is Ben going? It is big Thursday in Weymouth,

:01:03.:01:08.

there are huge waves four miles out to sea and there's a lot of wind.

:01:08.:01:14.

Conditions have changed. For Ben Ainslie, today was pivotal. If he

:01:14.:01:19.

was going to win that gold, he had to win today. They came out, he

:01:19.:01:24.

looked like a different sailor. He absolutely owned the start line. He

:01:24.:01:28.

got the one place where you had to start. He was. The first leg and

:01:29.:01:33.

extended on the next one. The Danish, well, he had a terrible

:01:33.:01:39.

start and he capsized on the downwind leg. Nervous, perhaps.

:01:39.:01:45.

It's a big days so anything could happen throughout the race. Our

:01:45.:01:49.

commentators, they will take us through the last 15 minutes of

:01:49.:01:59.

increased. From a British perspective, the news is still good

:01:59.:02:06.

for Ben Ainslie. Hogh-Christensen is leading overall. Ben Ainslie is

:02:06.:02:10.

to the right of picture. That Orange boy is what they are

:02:10.:02:15.

rounding next. They have to go down wind. The Danish sailor capsized in

:02:15.:02:21.

these conditions. We don't want to see that from Ben Ainslie at all.

:02:21.:02:28.

As the Dana heads to the left hand side of the course. Ben Ainslie is

:02:28.:02:30.

now in a real duelled with a man from the Netherlands at the front

:02:30.:02:40.
:02:40.:02:57.

you have to choose your side, left or right. But it is Postma from the

:02:57.:03:07.
:03:07.:03:14.

mark. But the wind coming from his right, standing behind the boat

:03:14.:03:19.

looking forward. But it is Postma who announced the top mark and lets

:03:19.:03:23.

his sail out. A bit of rock-and- roll there. Ainslie now on the

:03:23.:03:31.

attack. These are difficult conditions. You have to be careful,

:03:31.:03:36.

too. You have to be very careful in these conditions. You can see how

:03:36.:03:41.

much the boat can Rock Around, very easy to capsize. Ben is very good

:03:41.:03:45.

in these conditions, very good at sailing downwind as well. We expect

:03:45.:03:49.

him to go very fast and start reeling in the Dutch guy on this

:03:49.:03:54.

leg. You will see him jump into action and pumping the boat. He

:03:54.:03:59.

stands up, leans back, pumps the mainsail. Every time he does that

:03:59.:04:03.

the boat gets a surge of speed. You try and time that with the wave as

:04:03.:04:07.

well. A combination of those factors at the same time and the

:04:07.:04:17.
:04:17.:04:18.

boat absolutely flies. Ainslie is on the attack now. Denmark in 6th

:04:18.:04:28.
:04:28.:04:36.

place at the moment. Ainslie has and he's gaining, he is impressing.

:04:36.:04:40.

Three big errors he's come back from. He was last in one race and

:04:40.:04:43.

then he went on to beat Ainsley Waugh. He thought he was over the

:04:43.:04:48.

line in another race, then he went on to beat Ainslie. Then he

:04:48.:04:53.

capsized, got himself upright, looked absolutely exhausted - can

:04:53.:04:57.

he beat Ainslie? Surely the British sailor is far enough ahead in this

:04:57.:05:02.

race. This is the chase from Hogh- Christensen, the man who spent his

:05:02.:05:05.

full-time occupation inside the music business, and gave up last

:05:06.:05:15.
:05:16.:05:21.

November to spend his full-time attention that is Ben Ainslie wins

:05:21.:05:30.

gold here, he will become the greatest ever sailing Olympian. He

:05:30.:05:34.

has 10 races. You count nine of his results in those 10 races. He can

:05:34.:05:38.

discard his worst score. This is absolutely his best score at the

:05:38.:05:44.

moment. On Sunday, Ainslie will go into a metal race. Must count his.

:05:44.:05:53.

Spare. He has to count points in the -- 10 of the 11 races. It's a

:05:53.:05:57.

long way to win gold, a lot of time on the water. The picture clearly

:05:57.:06:01.

shows that Ainslie is sailing faster than the Dutch sailor.

:06:01.:06:08.

Rocking that boat downwind. One rock too many and you are swimming.

:06:09.:06:12.

It's a fine line you have to play. You have to push hard because it

:06:12.:06:19.

induces more speed. This is largely about speed, tactics as well,

:06:19.:06:23.

getting the wind right. But you need to be fast to be competitive.

:06:23.:06:28.

It's a fine line to play. You push it too hard and you can capsize. We

:06:28.:06:33.

have seen Ben, he's extended fantastically well. We said he was

:06:33.:06:38.

fast downwind and he is absolutely flying down his last downwind leg.

:06:38.:06:43.

The sum much talk about what has happened to Ben, we are seeing that

:06:43.:06:48.

little has happened to Ben Ainslie. He can halve the lead that the

:06:48.:06:54.

Danish sailor has. He has always appeared to be slightly cornered,

:06:54.:06:58.

but if you corner Ben Ainslie, he normally turns his frustration in

:06:58.:07:04.

to speed. In these wild winds out in Weymouth Bay, he is rock and

:07:04.:07:09.

roll in his way down towards the mark. Ben Ainslie goes faster than

:07:09.:07:14.

Australia, the Danish boat just getting the advantage. Those speeds

:07:14.:07:18.

on a little bit misleading because you get a burst of speed, it's the

:07:18.:07:28.

consistency. The Spanish sailor, you can see that there has been

:07:28.:07:34.

some gear failure. He may be out of this race. That will give the

:07:34.:07:44.
:07:44.:07:48.

Danish sailor, Hogh-Christensen, Brazilian and Danish sailor.

:07:48.:07:58.
:07:58.:08:16.

Confirmation that true J-Lo has youngster, he has coached as a

:08:16.:08:26.
:08:26.:08:29.

friend since he was 10 or 11 years old. Just look at the trial, the

:08:29.:08:33.

yellow dots behind Ainslie. That shows the way he's weaving his way

:08:33.:08:37.

down the course. When he finds a wave, like a surfer, he steers the

:08:37.:08:44.

heavyweight faint -- Finn and catches the waiver. You can tell

:08:44.:08:47.

when he gets that speed because you can see more white water at the

:08:47.:08:53.

front of the boat, like a speedboat. Ainslie now leading. He has yet to

:08:53.:09:00.

win a race here on the waters of Weymouth and Portland. He came into

:09:00.:09:06.

this Olympic Games as he generally does, as the favourite. The burden

:09:06.:09:11.

of expectation on him. Unlike almost any other athlete in the

:09:11.:09:15.

British team in London 2012. But he's now got a 90-metre lead over

:09:15.:09:25.
:09:25.:09:49.

the man from the Netherlands, literally just a few feet away from

:09:49.:09:54.

the crowds. Look at the extra distance Ainslie is sailing by

:09:55.:10:04.
:10:05.:10:10.

making those giant curves and difference. Denmark currently lead

:10:10.:10:16.

this ft by 10 points. Ainslie is hot on his heels. But two racers

:10:16.:10:19.

like this, if it stays like this, could see normal service resumed

:10:19.:10:24.

for the man who won the World Championships in Cornwall so

:10:24.:10:28.

convincingly, and he did that the day before he carried the Olympic

:10:28.:10:32.

torch, the first man to do it. It looks like it's getting a little

:10:32.:10:36.

closer but these long lenses compress the distance. Ainslie

:10:36.:10:41.

started this race in very different fashion, a very different approach.

:10:41.:10:44.

Conservative sailor's hang back and wait for their slot, but that

:10:44.:10:49.

wasn't the way Ben started today. No, he really was aggressive on the

:10:49.:10:52.

start-line. He decided that he wanted to get to the left-hand side

:10:52.:10:59.

of the track as you look up wind. To do that, and to fight off all

:10:59.:11:04.

the other teams is really high risk because if you get it wrong you can

:11:04.:11:09.

get wrapped up on the mark at the start. You end up with a penalty in

:11:09.:11:14.

that situation. Ainslie rock and roll in. He has to be careful. We

:11:14.:11:19.

saw one sailor capsize earlier on. That Sala was Hogh-Christensen. You

:11:19.:11:28.

can hear the cheers of the crowd. This race is not over. Ainslie has

:11:28.:11:32.

the advantage, gets away there. A little tweak and turn as he heads

:11:32.:11:37.

down wind. Not looking back, not looking concerned. Italy and China

:11:37.:11:43.

are a long way behind. Now leaning the boat over on towards him.

:11:43.:11:48.

Squeezing their. There is the Danish sailor on the attack behind.

:11:48.:11:52.

Can the Danish sailor attack, has left it too late? We have France in

:11:52.:11:56.

there as well. For the first time in London 2012, Ben Ainslie,

:11:56.:12:01.

Britain's ever -- greatest ever Olympic sailor, has the rest of the

:12:01.:12:07.

world in his wake. This is what we expected of Ben Ainslie. Out there,

:12:07.:12:14.

big waves, enjoying it, dominating the fleet. And now using every

:12:14.:12:20.

single wave, an example of the technique. Every wave he gets right

:12:20.:12:24.

polls at it again, but get a few wrong and the catching pack will be

:12:24.:12:30.

right up with him. Such a fine line. He is lying down the waves and is

:12:30.:12:34.

constantly changing direction. That's so he can stay on the wave

:12:34.:12:38.

for longer. The longer you can stay on, the faster and further you

:12:38.:12:42.

travel down wind. He's done an excellent job, having pulled in big

:12:42.:12:46.

distances against the feet behind him. Sometimes Ben Ainslie get it

:12:46.:12:49.

so right on a wave that he is serving and overtakes the wind. At

:12:49.:12:58.

that moment you see the sails flap. This is classic Ainslie technique.

:12:58.:13:05.

He is supremely fit. He is 36 years old. An Olympic athlete. The Danish

:13:05.:13:10.

sailor is now down to 9th place. All Ainslie can do is stay there.

:13:10.:13:14.

But from a British perspective, the Danish flag and its position on

:13:15.:13:19.

that leaderboard is crucial. If he falls back a couple more, we can

:13:19.:13:24.

see the overall lead changed. Ben Ainslie round the final mark at

:13:24.:13:28.

heads towards the finish. Ainslie now has established a comfortable

:13:28.:13:33.

lead, but just where is the Danish sailor going to finish? That could

:13:33.:13:36.

be critical in the overall standings. One place here

:13:36.:13:39.

difference could mean the difference between gold and silver

:13:39.:13:44.

come the final on Sunday. It is going to be extraordinary down here

:13:44.:13:49.

on Sunday. Here is Ben Ainslie now, coming in on the final leg of a day

:13:49.:13:53.

that surely he must have felt the pressure. You heard the weather

:13:53.:13:59.

forecast this morning, Weymouth, Brough, windy. He went out here at

:13:59.:14:04.

the start line, pretty patchy, went for a tiny gap and there it is, Ben

:14:04.:14:10.

Ainslie has beaten the Danish. Come on, come on! You can see him, he

:14:10.:14:14.

believes it. The last race he finished he hammered his hand on

:14:14.:14:22.

the deck, frustrated, brutal. That is Ben Ainslie talking to himself,

:14:22.:14:28.

come on, I've done it! We saw huge emotion from Ben across the line

:14:28.:14:31.

there. We've seen him so frustrated when he crossed that line every

:14:31.:14:39.

time so far. Here is the Dutch sailor. We are going to get

:14:39.:14:45.

confirmation. Denmark are in eighth. That would be a seven. Macro

:14:45.:14:50.

clawback or Ben Ainslie, three points between them. Can the Danish

:14:50.:14:54.

sailor, Hogh-Christensen, the man who went for an unscheduled swim

:14:54.:14:58.

during this race, he was on the attack or Ben Ainslie. There was

:14:58.:15:02.

some concern from a British perspective, he had such superior

:15:02.:15:06.

speed. But he didn't get a chance to find out. He pulled himself

:15:07.:15:13.

upright, got back into action, but Denmark has an eighth. There he is

:15:13.:15:18.

just crossing the line. A very different body language to that of

:15:18.:15:23.

Ben Ainslie. He shakes his head. He breathes out. He will be absolutely

:15:23.:15:28.

physically exhausted. But mentally, that has shown the first chink in

:15:28.:15:38.
:15:38.:15:48.

the armour of the Danish sailor. that Ben Ainslie has beaten Jonas

:15:48.:15:51.

Hogh-Christensen on the water. Are we about to see a swing in fortunes

:15:51.:15:57.

for Great Britain? Well, we have seen something pretty special, we

:15:57.:16:02.

have seen Ben Ainslie back on the attack. Advantage Ben Ainslie? We

:16:02.:16:12.
:16:12.:16:19.

Hopefully, Shirley has not capsized, I used there? Your heart, good! --

:16:19.:16:25.

are you there? You are, good! Is it right that you can lose the worst

:16:25.:16:31.

of the 11 races? Yes, before going into the medal race, but you carry

:16:31.:16:36.

your cumulative points from the series, so it is about being

:16:36.:16:40.

consistent, keeping the points difference to a minimum. There was

:16:40.:16:43.

a huge sigh of relief from Ben Ainslie, and he was a different

:16:44.:16:48.

sailor in that race, not letting anyone away with anything, and that

:16:48.:16:53.

is more like what we are used to seeing. Exactly that, we are used

:16:53.:16:59.

to see him winning, why has he not been having such a hold on the rest

:16:59.:17:04.

of the world? Well, I think the speed of the great Dane was a

:17:04.:17:08.

surprise. It was a surprise to the Great Dane, but also to all the

:17:08.:17:13.

sailors and coaches, and they were not expecting that. At the World

:17:13.:17:17.

Championships, Ben won convincingly with a string of firsts, and Jonas

:17:17.:17:22.

was third, so it's definitely came out of the blue. It was like he had

:17:23.:17:27.

a slightly bigger engine, and it was hard for him to counter that.

:17:27.:17:31.

Ben was playing a safe game, playing the percentages, and we

:17:31.:17:35.

have seen in start badly in the Olympic Games before, but I feel

:17:35.:17:40.

good about that race, he seems to have found his feet. Still plenty

:17:40.:17:46.

of time left for him? Another race today, two tomorrow, and then the

:17:46.:17:51.

final on Sunday. Thank you so much. You can't go back to shore now.

:17:51.:17:57.

You're not staying out until the next race, are you? Matt, This Is

:17:57.:18:03.

hardcore, there is a lot more racing going on, the double Olympic

:18:03.:18:07.

medleys from Beijing are leading, they have just had a second and are

:18:07.:18:11.

looking pretty good. The 470 men came out for the first time today,

:18:11.:18:20.

they have had a second that -- and are in second overall. The 49s are

:18:20.:18:23.

leaving the race after the Finnish boat in front of them capsized.

:18:23.:18:29.

Plenty of reason to stay out, not of great British success. Super job,

:18:29.:18:34.

well done, keep going! If you have missed any of the last 24 hours of

:18:34.:18:39.

Olympic action, and you are allowed to go to sleep, if you have a 60

:18:39.:18:48.

seconds to spare, here is your They are making history here at

:18:48.:18:54.

Eton Dorney, Great Britain into the record books, Helen Glover and

:18:54.:19:01.

Heather Stanning, we stand up and we salute you! And Great Britain

:19:01.:19:09.

into bronze-medal position! Double double, a champion's performance if

:19:09.:19:15.

ever I have seen one. It is a fantastic silver medal 4 Great

Great Britain get the silver, a valiant effort from the British

boys. Here comes Bradley Wiggins, after the line, look at the time...

:19:47.:19:52.

Here he comes, Wiggins goes into the lead! I think it should be

arise Sir Brad. Indeed, on that note, I have just

:19:58.:20:03.

found these behind the table. I do not know if they were Mishal's or

Sharon's. Everyone is still celebrating the epic victory of

Bradley Wiggins. Just looking down a few tweets, Jamie Murray says his

congratulations to the men's lightweight four, sorry it was not

:20:17.:20:25.

gold. I can tell you that your brother has beaten Nicolas Almagro

:20:25.:20:32.

6-4, 6-1. He is into the semi- finals. Earlier, we saw Gemma

:20:32.:20:37.

Gibbons win her opening bout by ippon, effectively the judo version

:20:37.:20:41.

of a knockout. Much to the delight of the crowd at the ExCeL arena.

:20:41.:20:46.

Next, she is to face the Mongolian world number 7 for a place in the

:20:46.:20:50.

quarter-finals. Earlier the girls were out on the mat, Nicola

care in the rankings with a spectacular first round it on -- it

:21:20.:21:24.

on. The mountain has just got a little bit steeper, the Mongolian

:21:24.:21:30.

mountain may be a tough one to Crest, we will see. She was

:21:30.:21:34.

mightily impressive, the Mongolian judo squad, she was desperately

:21:34.:21:39.

close to winning and Olympic medal herself, which bring back such warm

:21:39.:21:43.

memories for her countryfolk, won their first gold medal in any sport

:21:43.:21:48.

four years ago, and she is one of the likely candidates here. Gemma

:21:48.:21:54.

was brilliant and at first match. She kept her cool throughout and

:21:54.:21:58.

waited for the moment, and she will need to do the same here. This

:21:58.:22:02.

Mongolian is very physical, and she does not want to do any weak

:22:02.:22:06.

attacks. She has to wait for the moment to be right. The winner of

:22:06.:22:16.
:22:16.:22:26.

turnover on the ground, Chennai needs to stay on her stomach. --

:22:26.:22:32.

Gemma. Nothing doing, she was clamped like one of the then puts

:22:32.:22:37.

on the riverbank, on the Thames that separates her from her home in

:22:37.:22:47.
:22:47.:23:15.

Greenwich. She is a local girl, and Euan Burton's partner, she has

:23:15.:23:19.

experience of how bruising mentally the Olympics can be. She will have

:23:19.:23:24.

been as moved as we all were by his defeat a couple of days ago, and

:23:24.:23:28.

the magnificent way he reacted to it during his interview with the

:23:28.:23:38.
:23:38.:24:17.

Britain had to celebrate at these Games. It is a record she is not

:24:17.:24:22.

particularly proud of, she would rather she was not the last British

:24:32.:24:32.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 41 seconds

:24:32.:25:13.

champions turning themselves into a penalty, though. Rolling hands from

:25:13.:25:17.

the referee to indicate that he does not think she is doing enough

:25:17.:25:23.

work. The Mongolian getting the initiative again, Gemma Gibbons

:25:23.:25:33.
:25:33.:25:39.

needs to get her hips in the first, lest we forget. Once again, a

:25:39.:25:43.

British fighter coming up against one of the best early on, because

:25:43.:25:49.

they themselves are not seeded. There has been a British fighter in

:25:49.:25:52.

every way it on every day, but they have been scattered to the winds

:25:52.:25:55.

because they have been drawn against the world's very best. They

:25:55.:26:05.
:26:05.:26:11.

have not been protected themselves of the match, she will have more

:26:11.:26:16.

time to get their attack in. -- Gemma. I was reading, by the way,

:26:16.:26:20.

that the gold used to plate the champions' medals in London has

:26:20.:26:25.
