success on that grid. he has not had major success for nearly a decade since he got those two titles. the indianapolis 500, it is not as big as the world championship, but it is one of the biggest things you can do. he is in a car that everyone knows cannot achieve anything. why not achieve success in a year where he may not get success in formula i? i have been fortunate enough to race in the monaco grand prix, and i would see the indianapolis 500 is the best race. you cannot go to a golf tournament where there are 450,000 people absolutely crammed in one sporting arena to watch these ca i’s one sporting arena to watch these cars going so fast. it is a spectacle that everyone has to see if you are into motorsport. he is lucky enough to be in a front—running car and have a chance of winning. the indianapolis 500 is more pure and we will get formula i viewers who are bored of seeing the same cars win chime in and timeout, and see a race which is hugely
unpredictable, huge speed, and were doing and overta ke overtake is incredible is skilful. —— time in and time out. the track cycling world championships got under way in hong kong on wednesday, with three gold medals up for grabs. the men's team pursuit was won by new zealand, who, once again, beat the netherlands in the final, to retain the title they won in london last year. the kiwi trio of ethan mitchell, sam webster and ed dawkins, who won silver at last year's olympics, edged out the dutch by a third of a second, as new zealand claimed the title for the third time in four years. the bronze medal went to france, who beat poland in the ride—off for third place. earlier, the first gold medal of the games went to italy's rachele barbieri in the women's scratch race, but she left it late. barbieri, who was third at the bell, produced a furious dash to the line, to beat elinor barker of great britain into second place. it was a first world title for the european under—23 champion. we don't often show you action
from the united soccer league, which effectively forms part the second tier of football in the us, but there's a first time for everything. here's a goal which will live long in the memory for okc energy fc fans. first, we have an unorthodox acrobatic throw—in from michael harris to teammate, miguel gonzalez, and how about this for a finish? this beautiful bicycle kick gave the oklahoma city based side a 1—0 win over sacramento republic fc. a beautiful bicycle kick to see there. you can get all the latest sports news at our website. that's bbc.com/sport. but from me and the rest of the sport today team, goodbye. good morning.
it looks like it will be on the cool side for the easter weekend. more on that in a moment. we've introduced cooler air at the moment behind this very weak weather front that moved down across the country. this north—westerly airflow. particularly chilly first thing in eastern scotland and eastern england, but with the cloud more broken in the countryside, temperatures briefly not far from freezing. at least we have early sunshine through lincolnshire, east anglia and the south—east. the tendency through the day is to increase the cloud from the west. that's already happening in south—west england, across wales and in the north—west cloud is thick enough for some light rain or drizzle, mainly over the hills. again, fine to the east of the pennines. as it will be in eastern scotland, with sunshine. western scotland is dull and damp. sunshine for northern ireland too. through the day it clouds over across the eastern side of england and scotland.
at the same time in the afternoon we open up a gap in the cloud across south wales, south—west england and that should push into the south—east. here we have the best of the sunshine in the afternoon and the highest temperatures still only 13—14. furthermore north, a lot of places dry. around the western hills primarily we get the damp weather. over the easter weekend temperatures disappointing for the time of year. a cool feel. warm when the sun is out, but on the whole there will be a lot of cloud. probably not much rain around. just a bit a nuisance. these weather systems coming into the uk for good friday are going to be very much on the weak side. but across england and wales we will have a lot of cloud. there will be some pockets of light rain or drizzle here and there. no great amounts. but a bit of a damp picture, especially for south wales and south—west england. to the north of northern england, scotland and northern ireland, something a bit brighter, but also showers. a strong wind will make it feel chilly in scotland.
maybe sneaking a 16 in the south—east if we are very lucky. those weather systems pull away and we are back into the cooler north—westerly airflow. so we fluctuate almost from one day to the next over the easter weekend. on saturday, easter saturday, much drier and brighter. most places will have a fine day. a little sunshine at times, not doing an awful lot for temperatures. there could be a few showers in the north of scotland. then we are back into the fluctuation again for easter day. more weather fronts arriving across the uk. higher pressure in the south. those weather fronts again are fairly weak. most of the rain over the hills, across scotland, northern ireland and northern england. to the south, it should be dry and brighter. 15 perhaps in london, nine in glasgow. a very warm welcome to bbc news, broadcasting to our viewers in north america and around the globe. my name is mike embley. our top stories: a public show of unity, but russia and america fail to resolve their differences over the syrian chemical attack
