is this a chance or intellectual property? liverpool try to trade market their name. —— try to trademark their name. hello and welcome to sportsday. welcome to the programme. it has begun even before this that out onto the pitch. england says they were hitless really ha rd the pitch. england says they were hitless really hard and that special ashes atmosphere is warming up nicely. news coming out of the grand camp is that he has not made it to the starting line—up but the aussie players and sandpaper gate have. how do we expect them to behave? joe
route will make you think again, joe wilson reports. cricket history lesson one, ashes equals the ultimate. smallest price and literal size they are holding it, the biggest insignificance, smile. this summer, england already achieved their goal and made history. joe route held the world cup soi history. joe route held the world cup so i asked him does that leave the ashes left significant?” cup so i asked him does that leave the ashes left significant? i think you speak to anyone who has captained england on the verge of an ashes series and it does not mean as much as any other event, i doubt anyone would agree. it is huge and a great opportunity. cricket in this country is probably at an all—time high and has interest that has not had for a long time and we have an opportunity as a team to make this summer a very memorable one. could this be a family ashes series? australia's n says that they chart
behaviour never lies. you will find smith, warner and bancroft, all three of the men who were banned for their part in the world sampling labour scandal. they are human beings and they have feelings and they are no different from anyone else. what we have spoken about is that we believe it will go up a notch. tim kaine says he could think of 15 grounds more intimidating than edgbaston but england when you're often. fantastic support from the fans here, and they said when they played here before, they get typed in but the aussies give it a bit back. and i think people will have better time than those who can't deal with it. archer has thrown himself into training but
english eyes will linger on the site of his bowler and full flow. james anderson at 37 is, there is his captain, even better. joe wilson, e bbc news, edgbaston. so what is the view down under? earlier i spoke to australian journalist and podcast host andrew menczel and began by asking him if the aussie's were feeling confident. i think that is where england is most vulnerable at the top of their order, the opening batsman did not look great against the irish and he says he has been a bit vulnerable and if he doesn't move up to three i think that gives england a little bit more strength in the top of the order and certainly australia will wa nt to order and certainly australia will want to make it daily and roads and get into the strong middle order. what about the batting line—up, is australia feeling confident about that? there is a little bit now with
the batting line—up, with cameron ba ncroft‘s the batting line—up, with cameron bancroft‘s returned to test cricket and the batting line—up is straight, it isa and the batting line—up is straight, it is a few questions there but i think smith and warner does have a lot of strength in the top order. you mentioned the inclusion of those three members of sandpaper gate and is that forgetting of the selectors to include them? they serve their band and their time and they are eligible to be picked and picked on form then that is fine. i do not think it is too soon, it is a little bit of a surprise that bancroft is straight back into the test side by its neck and warner i think were a lwa ys its neck and warner i think were always going to come back. there are still some section of the public who will always view them as cheats but there is also the element of the public that wants them to come back in and concede the benefits to their
redemption. it is a divisive issue andi redemption. it is a divisive issue and i do not think it is going to go away. i am going to ask you finally let your prediction is going to be, will it be tight or will one country going to run away with it? yellow australia has a stronger line up all the way down and i think they will struggle to back up after a huge world cup campaign and victory sale in giving australia something like 4-1. in giving australia something like 4—1. staying with cricket... staying with cricket and the former glamorgan all—rounder malcom nash has died at the age of 7a. nash was the first man to be hit for six sixes in a professional match when sir garry sobers struck him for 36 runs in an over, during a county match in swansea. as a bowler he captained his county and took 993 first—class wickets in the course of his career. time for some of the days other stories now, and in the women's game...
england will attempt to salvage some points as the third t20 begins this evening in bristol. australia have already taken the series after a comfortable seven—wicket win over england at hove. and they have retained the ashes in the multiformat series. australia go into this match with a 12—2 lead over england. more than 50, 000 tickets have already been sold for the lionesses‘ match against germany at wembley in november. it means they're on course to beat their previous record attendance of 45,618 — where they lost 3—0 to germany in 2014. lucy bronze and ellen white have both been nominated for best player in the fifa football awards after england came fourth in the recent world cup. manager phil neville has been shortlisted for best women's coach. harry kane is the only english player to have been nominated in the men's category. england forward toni duggan has signed for spanish league champions atletico madrid on a two—year contract. duggan left barcelona earlier this summer, after spending two seasons
with the catalan club. he has won three gold medals and broke his own world record in the process , broke his own world record in the process, not back from an incredible successful championships, he joins us successful championships, he joins us now, how did it feel to win all three of your goals? great, i did the triple—double now and three world championships and a four by one was completely unexpected, so... along the way you became the first man who swam under 57 seconds, project 506i think you call that. was the aim in the semifinal to do it? i knew i could was the aim in the semifinal to do it? i knewl could get was the aim in the semifinal to do it? i knew i could get under it but the whole race had to come together and on the first 50 kind of get used to it and really want obviously
because you want your muscles warm, and the smooth stroke and races are won and lost in the first 50 metres, ifi won and lost in the first 50 metres, if i spent too much energy i would be done. i knew i was on a good pace and the stroke is long and nice touch and straight off the wall. good pull out, a lot better than previous ones i have done and now it is honestly about the return. are you aware of where you are in relation to the others? no idea. that is a massive margin for me so it is about two seconds out so you can come to this wall and then you will see again, and then i am like wow, how fast was that? did you know it was a weld record? yes, i wasn't, it was a weld record? yes, i wasn't, it takes a long time, all of that
settling and really. how did you feel when you found out? incredible i kiss my finger and put it up but you kind of want to go to the main route because it is not final anyone everything to come together that you have the finaljob to do and though i worked for worked for years for this, it is hard to kind of fathom what you have done in that moment. and then you have gone on to the final. unexpected beat you one and the four by one and you did not expect to do it? denly did not bring his track team and that is where the relief came from for him and i knew i could carry across and the an american and the fly light would come in and... this is you and the breaststroke care. i am claiming back to the ground that we need to get. and then jimmy back to the ground that we need to get. and thenjimmy diet send. he has to hold the ground now. on the freestyle this is where we started
to get it, are we actually taking down an american, that was incredible. one thing you have spoken about to get you to this point now is mental strength and meditating before racing and d feel like that has been the difference in your mental strength? resilience is a huge part of sport and you have to be resilient but also know your strengths and weaknesses and identify them and talking about demons and kind of have an energy and use it to go forward and that is exactly what you do down here, you are almost bipolar and an athlete but at the same time you have to put it aside and identify them later. one of the talking points of the world championships and i am afraid we have to talk about it is drug cheats, duncan scott refuse to share the podium because he went off and started parading him. it was not
easy to ignore that that that shows the type of character that he is, he isa the type of character that he is, he is a champion and an athlete that the surface place in the sport and the surface place in the sport and the action over the years he has done and he finishes like this and you do not get angry like that if you do not get angry like that if you are not guilty stop id if you like the governing body has been doing enough because obviously we know that athlete has been found guilty in the past of taking an unequal substance? not enough has been done and clean athletes feel like there is a war on her hands and we feel like, all we have to focus on is the swimming and it does not feel like that. are you excited for next year and what is your name for those? tokyo will be good, amazing people out there in the culture out there they love swimming so much and we know what the camp will be like and again sport is unpredictable and that environment as unpredictable so
we will adapt to problems that arise but again enjoy it and have a bit of a rest now and forget about smiling for a bed and recalibrate. a rest now and forget about smiling for a bed and recalibratelj a rest now and forget about smiling for a bed and recalibrate. i think you deserve a bit of a rest. thank you. the women's open starts tomorrow at woburn, and there are a few brits expected to perform well. it's the home course of england's charley hull and england's georgia hall is the defending champion after winning last year at royal lytham st annes'. after playing in american for a year, hall says she's excited about playing in front of a home crowd. iam i am actually very excited and i am not feeling any pressure but it is nice for me to be home because i am in the us for a whole year so for me i have done the hard travelling and now i can enjoy being at home if a home crowd and i think i'm going to get a lot of support so i look forward to people out there watching and cheering me on and being able to
say that 818 major i think is special. the first time on the t is very special for special. the first time on the t is very specialfor me special. the first time on the t is very special for me and i think, special. the first time on the t is very specialfor me and i think, i do not know but i think they'll announce it on thursday so that would be very special, teeing up and hearing defending champion because thatis hearing defending champion because that is anything for me. afterjust three months of training, 18—year—old khadijah mellah will be going head to head with olympian victoria pendleton in the prestigious ‘magnolia cup' at goodwood. it's a significant moment for british racing too as she'll be the first jockey to race wearing a hijab. miriam walker—khan went to meet her. khadijah mellah only sat on a racehorse for the first time in april. at goodwood on thursday, she'll be making waves in the racing community in front of around 25,000 people. i feel ready. i have ridden the horse i'm riding for the race many times and i am feeling confident. but there's always a little nervousness because i have never ridden a big race ever. the muslim women's sport foundation
says you can count the number of female muslim jockeys in the uk on one hand. but khadijah doesn't view her background as a barrier. generally i like explaining where i've come from and how i've got to where i have. when i do ride out there i try and spot other people or any other women of colour and there was only one woman of colour in 200 riders. it doesn't faze me in any way. it means that ijust end up talking to loads of people and making great connections, so i'm happy. ebony horse club in brixton provides access to horseriding for young people who wouldn't usually be able to afford it, as well as children from special schools and young offenders. i think what the club has done here is amazing and it has made it accessible for a lot of young people here who might not have had the chance to participate in a riding or racing had it not been in such an
urban environment. on the elite flat front we struggled to find people representing the community as well so representing the community as well so finding role models i think will help muslim girls to try sport at least and if they do like it try to progress through it as well so it is notjust progress through it as well so it is not just about the grassroots it progress through it as well so it is notjust about the grassroots it is supporting the girls all the way through the elite. i never thought i would have a feature in racing at all. but now i have been writing resources for the past couple of weeks and i fell in love at that and i will keep at it and it made my day to get into big races and become an amateur or apprentice. know what is andi amateur or apprentice. know what is and i weep, quite a lot if you want to trade market and stop other people from using it but what if the word is a mean of the city? well, that's what liverpool football club are trying to do. they've submitted an application to trademark the word "liverpool" which — as you might imagine — has thrown up lots of complications.
patrick geary reports. it is nearly two months since liverpool's big party parading the european cup to the city and the champions and communion. recently be shared glory has given away to the sober question, who does live belong to, not the club but the word? they wa nted to, not the club but the word? they wanted to trademark the word liverpool and they say to protect themselves and fans from fake that so other clubs like manchester and chelsea have done the same but there is opposition in the city themselves. independent traders feel they are caught in the crossfire. they create their own merchandise and a supportive group say they are alarmed about the application and other football clubs in the area called on liverpool to back down. other football clubs in the area called on liverpool to back downlj would like them to withdraw the application because there is an awful lot of independent traders who are good people and an out of in a meagre living creating merchandise
and excellent designs but a lot of people caught up in it and it is a massive gap in our opinion. this is the fourth trademark application this year saint taking ownership of the word liverpool is about dealing with large—scale the word liverpool is about dealing with la rge—scale counterfeit the word liverpool is about dealing with large—scale counterfeit —— counterfeiters. this is nothing to do with any type of attack on local foot ball do with any type of attack on local football or a local vendors, this is trying to protect the football club and protect the revenue that comes in and right now we are under attack from large—scale in and right now we are under attack from la rge—scale manufacturing. eight the ballclub up the road have doubts, they state they will not stop using the word liverpool in any context but in a matter so important they are reluctant to rely on one—man's word. they are reluctant to rely on one-man's word. we are trying to build something distinct and separate with the community identity and the name liverpool and we cannot
