british cycling as a federation commies but a of time with those people, so to hear the things that we re people, so to hear the things that were happening behind the scenes and the way people were treated, was shocking. and because you don't see iti shocking. and because you don't see it i guess it was even more shocking. as some of it was heartbreaking because you don't expect people in your federation to get treated like that. laura kenny there on her return to international competition and medal targets. this week an england world cup winner and record try scorer announced her retirement from the international game. 82 caps for the red roses and 47 tries — we can speak to danielle waterman now. welcome. good evening. you made your debut at 18. you spent almost half your life playing for the england seniors — that's a massive decision. it was a really big decision, but one i am very proud of making my own

6:55 pm
little tired in a session at the end but to be leading 5—3 with two fantastic but to be leading 5—3 with two fa ntastic clea ra nces but to be leading 5—3 with two fantastic clearances it has to be said. a huge opportunity the kyren wilson, he will be kicking himself not getting that last frame. wilson, he will be kicking himself not getting that last framem would've been a fantastic comeback. the way it swayed back in his favour from 4—1 down it would be very disappointing with that missed round in the last. there will be more frames that will go like that. but john higgins is a master at clearing up. wilson is the young pretender, along passer and a great break. barry hawkins against williams, the old fox. fantastic player, knows his way around. first time they have played in long extended match. a tough one to call. barry has been in fantastic form, so it which is an interesting matchup. but barry hawkins, something happens to an way comes into the crucible. he loves it here. one of the players that really e njoys
