6:40 pm
a lwa ys never voted in picking a test team, always talked it through until we get to what we want to see and what we are comfortable with. but that is probably the most difficult because the impact when that is announced internally. the environment is made by everyone, not one or two individuals. because it's the, to me it's the complementary, teamwork is complementary. it's not the same people thinking the same way doing the same things. it actually people bring their own talents to a grip, they share it and then collectively move it on together. some make changes, some adapt, some add things, stick to other things. but ultimately what you end up with is the reflection of what that group is and what it represents. we will find out the team later on tonight bid in the last few minutes the all blacks tea m the last few minutes the all blacks

6:44 pm
0ur sports reporter david 0rnstein joins me to explain more. what is going on and why could the men's four by 400 metres team get the medals but others not? the international olympic committee and the iaaf, athletics world governing body have been retesting stored doping samples recently and so far britain have come in line for five 0lympic britain have come in line for five olympic and two world championship upgrades as a result, the olympic ones are all from 2008 in beijing, the men's and women's four by 400 metres bronze, the women'sjavelin for goldie sayers another bronze and the heptathlon with kelly southington a further bronze. the heptathlon, jessica ennis—hill been upgraded to gold and jo pavey in the king came from 2007, that would be a bronze as well. the british olympic association is in possession of the men's four by 400 metre 0lympic medals from beijing so are in a position to give them to the guys and that will happen sometime soon. but with the rest of the medals
6:45 pm
we've just mentioned they are still in the legal process so they cannot be awarded yet. is there any chance these guys may not get the medals with all this action going on, jessica ennis—hill, jo pavey, is there a chance they will miss out altogether? the men's four by 400 metres will definitely get them, they just need to metres will definitely get them, theyjust need to decide when and where that will happen. in terms of jessica ennis—hill and jo pavey from the world championships, if a quick decision is made with the appeals it could happen at the world championships because it's an iaaf event which is where they are due the medals from. with the olympic events it's compensated. but these appeals are ongoing so if they don't overturn them there's a chance they will not get the medals. thank you. british amateur boxing is going to a real boom period at the moment, there has been unprecedented success at world and european level. 12
