debate of the election campaign. It comes as new polls show the PM and Labor
still lagging behind. Walk for a cause - the 86-year-old
breaking all the stereotypes. Softer shade of P!nk... I used to stay up till 4 o'clock
in the morning on the internet, drinking wine, smoking cigarettes. Now it's foot on face here. And, pain and gain - big boys Mark Wahlberg and the Rock
team up in a box office hit. That's all ahead
as Weekend Sunrise begins right now.

I will be back with your local weather, short lead, after the news. Good morning. Labor has fallen further
behind the Coalition in the latest exclusive
Seven News ReachTEL poll. Political reporter Alex Hart
is on Tony Abbott's campaign trail in Sydney

where the Liberal Leader is about to
take part in the City2Surf fun run. Alex, Mr Abbott will have a spring
in his step this morning?

Yes, he certainly will.

To win suddenly it is the lead that Tony Abbott has over Kevin Rudd as preferred Prime Minister. Not good news for Kevin Rudd in today's Galaxy poll.

news for Kevin Rudd in today's
Galaxy poll. Almost one-third of voters said it is his previous record as Prime Minister, one-fifth said they think he is fake. It is a reality check for Tony Abbott as well with one-third saying they believe he is not prime-ministerial material. And Alex, it's not just the polls, but Labor's candidates are also
causing Mr Rudd headaches?

That is correct. In the past 24 hours two of their candidates had been dumped.

been dumped. The first is Geoff Lake, and endorsed to replace Simon Crean after a story emerged yesterday about derogatory comments he made towards a disabled woman 12 years ago. Kevin Rudd moved swiftly to have been dumped. He released a statement last night:

And the Labor's candidate in Bob Katter plus next seat, he has stood down after making a statement. He said yesterday:

The damage to him and the party was already done. Labor looking for two new candidates four quicks out from polling. -- four weeks. And Seven will bring you the
leaders' debate live at 6:30 Australian Eastern
Standard Time on 7TWO, hosted by Melissa Doyle
and Mark Riley. Viewers will be able to vote
instantly to deliver their verdict. The results will be displayed
on your TV as the debate unfolds. A man has been charged
with murdering his partner A man has been arrested, accused of trying to run
over a female police officer on the Gold Coast. Police intercepted a work van
at Robina last night to speak to the driver
about a traffic offence. It's believed he drove towards one
of the officers, sparking a chase. The van was stopped and two
passengers were taken into custody but the driver got away on foot. The 19-year-old was found
soon after. He faces several charges including dangerous drink driving
while suspended.

A man has been charged
with murdering his partner in the toilets of a McDonald's
restaurant in Sydney's south-west. It's believed the 38-year-old man was involved in an argument
with a 30-year-old woman early yesterday morning. Three young workers called
emergency services. Paramedics transported the woman
to hospital but she died a short time later. The man has been refused bail
and will face court today. Dozens of police officers
have been injured in clashes with protestors in Northern Ireland's capital,
Belfast. Crowds of pro-British Protestants
were demonstrating against a parade by Catholic republicans. Cars were set on fire and officers were attacked
with bricks, bottles and missiles. Several people have been arrested. British Prime Minister David Cameron has rejected broadcaster
Stephen Fry's call for a ban on Russia
hosting the Winter Olympics. Mr Fry joined
thousands of protestors outside Cameron's
Downing Street office after writing to him in reaction
to Russia's anti-gay laws. Mr Cameron took to Twitter - claiming the prejudice would be
best tackled by attending, rather than boycotting
next year's Sochi Games. which was not for team GB
to boycott the games, it was that it should be moved
somewhere else. The IOC says it's working
to ensure the games take place 'X Factor' contestants have wowed
crowds with free live performances. Screaming fans packed
the outside concourse at Sydney's Westfield Chatswood to see the rising stars. 14-year-old Jai Waetford
proved to be a big hit.

A maiden test century
from Chris Rogers has rescued Australia
from deep trouble on the second day of the fourth test
at Chester-Le-Street. Australia trail by 16 runs but once
again DRS was a major talking point. David Warner's return to the top
of the order was brief bowled for three by Broad.

Usman Khawaja went for a duck
and we looked in trouble at 2/12. Then another chapter
in the DRS saga, Rogers was on 20
when given out caught behind. He reviewed it,
replays showed he didn't hit it but that he was leg before wicket. COMMENTATOR: Not out. So the thought process is the umpire
didn't give him out, lbw. Rogers saved by a technicality,
England dumbfounded. Shane Watson came to the crease and put on a vital 129-run stand
with Rogers who brought up his first test ton.

That could be it is it, it is it a fantastic moment
for Chris Rogers. How well he's played today, Crucial runs at a critical time
for his team. Watson went for 68
as bad light stopped play with Australia having all
the momentum going into day three.

Collingwood has kept
its top four hopes alive with a stunning 29-point upset
victory over Sydney at ANZ Stadium. Elsewhere, the Suns over the Demons. The Bulldogs all but ended Carlton's
finals aspirations. Kochie's Port gallant
but beaten by Geelong. And Richmond in a tense affair
over Brisbane. In Sydney, the Swans jumped away
to an early lead but Collingwood rallied, blowing away the hosts after
the main break with six goals in a decisive third quarter to show
their right in the mix this season.

If we keep playing well and keep
performing well and keep winning then we give ourselves
the best chance of finishing high as we possibly can. At Metricon, Suns captain
Gary Ablett celebrated game 250 with a 13-point win over Melbourne. And an awful night for Carlton,
Chris Judd's gone for the season and their finals hopes look over after a 28-point loss
to the Bulldogs. Newcastle has cemented their spot
in the NRL's top eight with a last-gasp 4-point victory
over Cronulla last night while the Roosters held
on to beat the Raiders. In Sydney's shire, the Knights
were gifted the opportunity to make it 12-12 after half-time. A Todd Carney-penalty looked
to have sealed the Sharks victory before the Knights stole it
at the death. COMMENTATOR: Dane Gagaiiiiiiii, Gets the Knights back in front. We still found a way to win so,
that's a sign of a team that's starting to stand
for something. At Allianz Stadium, the Roosters
took sole possession of top spot, with a 6-point win over
the Raiders. The victory soured, by a potentially
season ending ankle injury to Boyd Cordner. Aussie Adam Scott is currently
one shot off the pace Aussie Adam Scott is currently
two shots off the pace midway through the third round
of the PGA Championship at Oak Hill Country Club.

Jason Dufner the leader. Scott made a great start to the day
with this birdie on the first but two bogeys leaves him
one over so far. Overnight leader Jason Dufner
has dropped two shots this morning, a double bogey on the fifth
hurting his round. While Jim Furyk is at seven under
and has two birdies on the day.

City2Surf was first run in 1971. JT looks a bit more like Olivia Newton-John in the 1980s. I realised in the mirror I look like a troll doll. Everyone is dressed up in crazy costumes, getting out to enjoy the day. 85,000 people making the trek from Hyde Park to Bondi Beach. This is the greatest fun run in the world.

It is the first time I have heard from my publicist in a year.Just having a chat. We get distracted when we are outside the studio. Welcome back.

US President Barack Obama
has pledged that have come under criticism
in the past few weeks. The announcement comes
in the wake of the scandal involving CIA leaker Edward Snowden. But will ordinary Americans
still be spied on? Foreign editor Dr Keith Suter
joins me now. Keith, how dramatic
will these changes be?

They are certainly very big changes if you can get them fully implemented. Greater transparency, the issuing of wines will be subject to greater scrutiny. It won't be the automatic process that has been operating for several years. It is not just ordinary Americans concerned about civil liberties but financial institutions are worried. They are being subject to scrutiny. The Europeans say come to Europe, you will be safe here. It is a major economic dimension to this. It is not just ordinary Americans that know that every time they make a new friend, Facebook will cause them to the government and one e mail, and Google reports them. What are we have seen in the past few hours is someone helping Edwards Snowden has said they refuse to be involved in reporting on their clients. They are closing down the service. We are seeing this turmoil in the United States, people are saying, is it true?The intelligence service and the President say while they keep records of the destination of calls and the humans and the duration of calls, they don't actually record the content. -- calls and emails. All of the email is scrutinised. 70% of the humans are a spam and we know that because someone is checking on it. -- of emails are spam. There is no privacy on the internet. As the former head of CIA found out, he had an affair and has been exposed.The Russians in a secret service are using typewriters again, I heard, seriously. They are putting out a call for old-fashioned typewriters. How did anyone think that the internet is private?A lot of people had a belief that there would not be so much scrutiny of it. A lot of youngsters to win all sorts of things on the internet and not realising they are being scrutinised and check on.Right. That is disturbing.Edward Snowden has brought this into the public domain. There has been a traumatic few weeks for the US agencies.And if anyone is watching this, Piero is just a friend of mine.Someone will get to know what you are doing and come back to you and tried to blackmail you.Thank you for some ideas, Keith was we spotted Wales at here this morning.What are the chances that Russian President Vladimir Putin will now run up and down Bondi beach with a crossbow? He likes to be seen as a strong man but does not want to be killing whales, that is politically incorrect. He will be shooting the crossbow at the Japanese who are going after the Wales.Stay tuned, international incident on Bondi Beach, coming up. Still to come - rock'n'roll mum.

You are watching 'Weekend Sunrise' from Bondi Beach. As Kevin Rudd and Tony Abbott
prepare to go head to head, there's more poll pain for Labor. An exclusive Seven News
ReachTEL poll has found the party is losing ground. On a two-party preferred basis the Coalition is six points ahead
53% to 47%. Tony Abbott has also edged ahead
of Kevin Rudd as preferred prime minister
53% to 47%. Kevin Rudd has dumped
Victorian candidate Geoff Lake, and Queensland candidate
Ken Robertson has withdrawn after both men embarrassed Labor
in its first week of campaigning. And Seven will bring you
the leaders' debate live at 6:30 Australian Eastern
Standard Time on 7TWO, hosted by Melissa Doyle
and Mark Riley. Viewers will be able to vote
instantly to deliver their verdict. The results will be displayed
on your TV as the debate unfolds.

A Sydney unit block
may have to be demolished after a fire
that nearly claimed four lives. Fire crews had to rescue a couple trapped on the top floor balcony
of the Parramatta complex using a ladder. They also managed to save a mother
and her 3-year-old daughter in the nick of time.

We managed to get the mother
out of the unit as well just prior to the roof
collapsing behind them. Several units have been
destroyed by the blaze and the block could be at risk
of further collapse. The cause is being investigated. Transport Safety investigators
have arrived in Melbourne to interview the pilots of two
planes that collided on the tarmac at Tullamarine. A Virgin jet was pushing back
from its departure gate when it hit an empty Jetstar plane that was taxiing
to the international terminal. No-one was hurt but the collision caused an estimated $3 million
worth of damage. Investigators will also review
recordings of the incident.

A burst water main
in inner Sydney has caused flooding and damaged roads. One man was forced
to abandon his car to escape the gushing waters
late last night at Ultimo. The water pressure has caused parts
of Harris Street and Ultimo Road to collapse. There are fears it may have leaked
into a nearby construction site. A number of nearby buildings
and shops were evacuated as a precaution.

A bus has overturned in Thailand
injuring 26 Russian tourists. Police say the bus driver
lost control while driving in the country's west. The bus veered off the road
and crashed into a small hill before toppling over. Three people,
including a 12-year-old girl, were badly injured. It's believed the bus's
steering wheel malfunctioned.

Tests on a new malaria vaccine
are raising hopes the battle is being won
against the disease - which kills hundreds of thousands
of people each year. The drug, which is made from living
parasites extracted from mosquitoes, has proved highly effective
in early stage clinical trials. It could pave the way
for the first vaccine offering 100% protection. Malaria infected 219 million people
in 2010 and killed an estimated 660,000. Vinyl record fans
are flocking in the droves to nab a bargain from New York's Public Library
for the Performing Arts. It's the first sale of its kind
since the '80s, with rare hidden gems among
the 22,000 albums up for grabs. It's intended
to clear out much-needed space and raise money for preserving
the library's collection.

A gutsy maiden test century
from Chris Rogers has put Australia
into a strong position after the second day
of the fourth test. A batting collapse
looked on the cards when Rogers was given out
caught behind, he reviewed it, replays showed he didn't hit it
but that he was leg before wicket. Rogers not out,
saved by a DRS technicality. The 35-year-old going on to become the oldest Australian batsman in
87 years to score a maiden test 100. The England boys were saying
if you don't get it now, you may never get it, you know, it was a just a fantastic moment
to finally get it. A great day for the Aussies trailing
by 16 runs going into day three. Three very good games to
complete Round 20 of the AFL today. Essendon will be looking
to bounce back against West Coast. Adelaide host North Melbourne. And Fremantle take on Greater
Western Sydney in the west. Coverage on Seven and 7mate
just check your guides. Last night, Collingwood showed they're still genuine
premiership contenders with an impressive 29-point victory
over Sydney at ANZ. Gold Coast edged out
a very brave Melbourne side by 13 points at Metricon in Gary Ablett's 250th. And Carlton's finals hopes
are in tatters after losing to the Bulldogs
by 28 points and losing Chris Judd
to a season-ending knee injury. The Roosters have seized
sole possession of top spot on the NRL ladder with a 6-point victory over
the Raiders at Allianz Stadium. The win was soured
with Boyd Cordner suffering a potentially season-ending
ankle injury. For such a young guy,

he's such an important part
of our team so I'm hoping not. While the Knights won
a heart-stopping encounter by four points
against the Sharks thanks to a Dane Gagai try
with two minutes remaining.

Aussie Adam Scott is currently
three shots off the pace midway through the third round
of the PGA Championship at Oak Hill Country Club. Jim Furyk is now
the outright leader at nine under. Scott made a great start to the day
with this birdie on the first but two bogeys leaves him one over
so far. Overnight leader Jason Dufner has
dropped two shots this morning, a double bogey
on the fifth hurting his round. While Jim Furyk is at nine under
and is the new overall leader. Olympic champion and British hero
Mo Farah has continued his dominance
of long distance running with a thrilling win
in the 10,000 meters race at the world championships
in Russia. Farah executing a devastating sprint

Time to talk sport now

Hamish McLachlan is in Melbourne and NRL man Matty Adamson
is here with me. Let's wrap all the results first. Collingwood very impressive -

still alive for a top four spot
with a 28-point win over Sydney. Gold Coast over Melbourne
in Gary Ablett's 250th. Carlton in disarray
after losing to the Bulldogs. Geelong back to winning ways
against Kochie's Port and Richmond destined
for finals footy.

The Knights won it at the death
against the Sharks and the Roosters held off
a fast-finishing Raiders.

Overnight conditions were extremely
tough for batting in Durham. Our top order was under pressure
immediately from Broad and Anderson. We were in trouble at 2/12 and it could have been worse if a DRS technicality
didn't save Rogers on 20. The 35-year-old dug in and went
on to make a maiden test tonne, giving us plenty of momentum
going into day three.

At ANZ last night,
Collingwood travelled north, Hamish, with plenty of belief and attitude

couple of weeks have muddied the
waters. The Sydney Swans were the favoured and kicked the first four, Kurt Tippett kicked six for the night but Colin would lead by three points at half-time. At the end they were as relentless as Sydney have been in the last 1.5 months. Various players from Collingwood were ball-winners. Right now there are about five. Hawthorn, Geelong, Fremantle and Collingwood legitimate contenders. There is a question over... It is a fantastic eight. Last night Collingwood who have lost three on the road of their six travelling games against the reigning premiers, they were sensational.As Colin would have been going up, Carlton, their fortunes have been devastated. -- Collingwood.The Western Bulldogs have been in amazing form. It was always going to be a dangerous game and they were too good. Really good football. Mick Malthouse, he has been very disappointed with the way Carlton have been going. They are in ninth position now and the only thing to get them into the finals is Essendon having their points stripped. Chris Judd, Matthew Watson, Garlett injured last night. The last term belonged to the Western Bulldogs. They had another strong win last night and if you are a fan, you should be pleased with the way the side are going. Yes indeed. You have got to

Yes indeed. You have got to love for Wayne Bennett.Certainly a game that Shane Flanagan would have expected to win. Wayne Bennett has an amazing ability to put strength and

and ability into his boys. The Newcastle might, greater strength and confidence. Wayne Bennett can instil that into his group. Great to watch, a really strong performance. You need experienced players at this time of the season. The Roosters are now on top after beating the Raiders last night. Thank you very much,

beating the Raiders last night.
Thank you very much, Hamish, you will be back later on. Lick it was quick, we have to get out of the way for the runners.

That is, if the Broccoli Brothers

That is, if the Broccoli Brothers were involved, which they are not. Insurers are offering
a $1.3 million reward to recover jewels stolen
in a brazen heist on the French Riviera. An armed robber stole
$136 million worth of gems from a luxury hotel in Cannes
last week. CNN's Jim Boulden has more. These are the first pictures
of the jewellery, valued at more than $100 million, stolen from inside a luxury hotel
in Cannes.

French police say a single armed raider
pulled off the heist on July 28

in broad daylight. Now Lloyd's of London has organized
a reward up to 1 million euros, or $1.3 million.

The gold and diamond encrusted
necklaces, earrings and bracelets were part of high-end
jewellery display that was in the process
of being set up when the jewel thief struck. There have now been three heists
in the region of Monaco in recent months, a big worry for authorities as the French Riviera is, after all,
a playground for the rich.

TRANSLATION: The safety of merchants
in Cannes, the inhabitants of this city, but also French and foreign
tourists, should be a priority. And for me, they are a priority. Experts say these kind of heists
are usually pulled off by someone with inside information and many times
jewellery is stolen to order, even with big rewards. Even with big rewards, the vast majority
of stolen jewellery and art is never recovered. These however, these pieces
are very unusual very big, extraordinary pieces. I have pictures and descriptions. One is 56 carats. But one of those behind the reward,
in this case, tells CNN this one million euro reward is a,
quote, "Comfortable retirement fund" but also stresses
the reward is unlikely to go up as that would only encourage
amateur attempts to steal jewels.

If amateurs can steal that amount, they would be professionals. I think the chief of police is in on this. There is a jewellery heist every few months around there.We are looking at a picture of the start of City2Surf, not far away from starting. Jostling and stretching.A these are the elite people. Steve Moneghetti, 1991, around 40 minutes for he has three of the top five fastest times over the years. This is going to be fantastic. Liam Adams is the favourite, won it for the last two years.I there any Kenyans,

We have all been there.There is a crash for the first couple of kilometres until they sort themselves out. The leading group is starting to spread out. They will be on pace. Perfect conditions today so it'll be interesting to see how Liam and the favourites go. As the Simon mentioned, the men's record, Steve Moneghetti, 40 minutes and three seconds in 1991. The women's record, 45 minutes in 2001.The oldest runner to do it, and we will interview one later on, 2003, 99 years old. Completed the course in 188 minutes. Not bad. That is incredible.That is fantastic.Isn't that terrific. Would have gone faster if she'd been to stop to see her mother in the nursing home on the way. I love that side of William Street, the Kings Cross overpass.

Good morning.

A Macquaire has been charged with murdering his partner, 30-year-old woman

A man has been charged
with murdering his partner in the toilets of a McDonald's
restaurant in Sydney's south-west. It's believed the 38-year-old man
was involved in an argument with a 30-year-old woman
early yesterday morning. Three young workers called
emergency services. Paramedics transported the woman
to hospital but she died a short time later. The man has been refused bail
and will face court today. Tony Abbott has just started running
in Sydney's City2Surf fun run after receiving a boost in our
exclusive Seven News ReachTEL poll. Political reporter Alex Hart
is travelling with the leader. t sfwl Seven will wri you the leaders debate. You will be leaders debate. You will be able to vote in the poll to vote in the poll to deliver your verdict.

Alex, Mr Abbott must be pleased?

He hasn't quite started. He is just over here at the front. You may be able to see him in the blue. He is pretty pleased this morning with the poll that came out yesterday. But he does know that the campaign of course is getting away from Labor. The primary vote down to 36. The primary vote down to 36.9% The primary vote down to 36.9%. The Coalitions is up to 46. Coalitions is up to 46.9% Coalitions is up to 46.9%. Third place.

Clearly, we are having some problems there. Some of those runners in gorilla suits must be interfering with the power cords I think. Anyway let's move on.

In the US - four bodies,
including two children, have been pulled from the site where a small plane crashed
into two homes at Connecticut. Two victims inside the plane
have been identified as a former Microsoft executive
and his teenage son, who were flying across
the East Coast to visit colleges. There were also two children,
aged 1 and 13, inside the home at the time of the crash.

British Prime Minister David Cameron has rejected broadcaster
Stephen Fry's call for a ban on Russia
hosting the Winter Olympics. Mr Fry joined thousands
of protesters outside Cameron's
Downing Street office after writing to him in reaction
to Russia's anti-gay laws. Mr Cameron took to Twitter - claiming the prejudice would be
best tackled by attending, rather than boycotting
next year's Sochi Games. He slightly misinterpreted
my letter to him and the IOC which was not for Team GB

to boycott the Olympiad, it was that it should be moved
somewhere else. The IOC says it's working
to ensure the Games take place A new study has found Aussie boys
as young as eight are increasingly concerned
about body image - believing a fit physique
will make them happier. 70 boys aged 8 to 10 were
interviewed about ideal body shapes and compared
with prepubescent girls. While girls were most concerned
about being skinny and beautiful, the boys placed emphasis on muscles,
sporting ability and masculinity. The research suggests
these ideals become ingrained once a boy hits his teens. Two daredevils in China have performed a death-defying
tightrope stunt across the Pearl River. The man known as China's
'Prince of Tightrope Walking', began his trek from the 23rd floor
of the Canton Tower - walking 506 metres across the water.

I do like his outfit!

Another tightroper set off
from the opposite side - meeting in the middle
and stunning crowds below with their acrobatic performance.

Did he step on his head?Gosh, they must have got a surprised when they realised they both booked the tightripe that morning.It's my turn. Did you see how windy it is. Gee.They outdo that American guy forfeits, don't they.

Gee.They outdo that American guy
forfeits, don't they.Whoo.That wind. What do you think of the Steven Friday's call of the boycott of the Sochi games?I think I'm on the side of the politicians, I think it would be better for the athletes to go to the games, to win gold medals and to stand up there and flip them the bird, I really think that's the way.Maybe they should send a whole gay team. Just this once, just a bit of positive discrimination, have the whole team is gay.Look, it has drawn a lot of attention to the issue so it's kind of done what the Russians didn't want to happy think in a way.It is crazy in this day and age that Russia would be so silly, and so backward?You think Russia is backyard.I thought Russia was more forward than it is.They are trapped in that autocratic political mindset. And the strong man, Putin can do whatever he likes.I do wonder about him sometimes. He is always taking his shirt offYou would think he would encourage March gayity in the Winter Olympics. He should operate as the brake man on the four man bob sled team

A remarkable maiden test century
from Chris Rogers has guided Australia
into a very promising position after day two of the fourth test. Our top order looked shaky
as we slumped to 2/12. Then another DRS controversy,
Rogers was given out caught behind, he reviewed it,
replays showed he didn't hit it but that he was leg before wicket. Rogers not out,
saved by a technicality. The 35-year-old going on to become the oldest Australian batsman
in 87 years to score a maiden test hundred. The England boys were saying
if you don't get it now you may never get it, you know,
it was a just a fantastic moment to finally get it. The Aussies looking strong
going into day three. Collingwood has proved they're still
genuine premiership contenders with a stunning 29-point win
over Sydney. Elsewhere, the Suns beat the Demons, the Bulldogs dented Carlton's
finals hopes. Kochie's Port, brave
but beaten by Geelong and Richmond in a tense affair
over Brisbane. In Sydney, the Pies blew away
the Swans after the main break But a top four finish is unlikely
according to Nathan Buckley. If you're a betting man,
mathematically, we're going to struggle to break
into the top four. At Metricon, Suns captain
Gary Ablett celebrated game 250 with a 13-point win over Melbourne. And a terrible night for Carlton, Chris Judd's gone for the season
and their finals hopes look over after a 28-point loss
to the Bulldogs. Newcastle are eyeing off
a home semifinal after a last-gasp 4-point victory
over Cronulla last night while the Roosters held off
a fast-finishing Raiders side. In Sydney's shire, the Sharks look
to have done enough but the Knights snatched victory
with two minutes to play.

The Roosters took sole position of top spot with a 6 point win over the raiders.

The victory soured by a potentially
season-ending ankle injury to Boyd Cordner. Aussie Adam Scott is currently
three shots off the pace midway through the third round
of the PGA Championship at Oak Hill Country Club. Jim Furyk is now
the outright leader at 9 under.

Scott made a great start to the day
with this birdie on the first but two bogeys leaves him one over
so far. Overnight leader Jason Dufner
has dropped two shots this morning, a double bogey on the fifth
hurting his round. While Jim Furyk is at nine under
and is the new overall leader.

It is back down to the start line where they will be coming off the start line for quite some time. JT, here he is. Yes. It is all getting underway. 85,000 people from Hyde Park down to Bondi Beach. Hi-5, go. Good Luke. The rumours that the streaker from State of Origin was going to appear, they didn't eventuate. He has not been seen but who we have seen is Mel from winners and losers.Hi.There are no losers today, only winners. today, only winners..I am trying to keep that in mind.That was an awful play on words. You are running for Oasis.For the Salvation Army, owe aces, youth support system.Have you been training?I have been training in Melbourne but Melbourne is flat. So I am not used to the hills. Melbourne is not 22 degrees and sunny.Exactly. I am a little nervous but I did see a guy dressed as a Big Bird, I figured if he can do it, I can do it.If you can't do it, jump on his back.Hugh Sheridan is supposed to be running with me. We will get to the finish line.Once you get all the way down to Bondi, you can celebrate a huge achievements with 85,000 people. Exactly. This is so much fun.It's such a great lovely smile and energy. Good luck. I hope you've still got the smile on your face when you are down at Bondi.

All right, Mel, you better get underway, we will throw back to you guys and we will see you down there for the afterparty soon. OK.Good on you, JT, good on you Mel. She has come a long way since she was in the Oasis refuge.She is a gorgeous girl. Not so gorgeous, JT in that head band. I am not sure about that. He looks like Kid Rock don't you think.No.If anyone could do it, JT can, I reckon.I don't want to wait to the end of the show, I want to make a quick apology, I wasn't trying to say that Russians were all backward. There are many, many, forward thinking, liberal Russians who are very courageous in fighting that political establishment. I want to apologise on behalf of Simon, on flipping the bird on behalf of the gay community. Sorry. Flipping the flamingo at Vladimir Putin.At the front of the race. They are setting a cracking race. Liam Adams, won it the last two years, the Victorian runner, favourite very much again today. He would be what is he, 17 minutes roughly into the race by now.21kmh.That's how fast they are running.Oh my goodness. That's super fast. super fast..We have got two out the front right now. I am not sure who is who.They are running 22kmh right now, later when they are on a boss, they will be going about 300 metres an hour. That's it. It makes me feel like having a little run to warm up. Really, Sam, do you run?No, only if there's a fire.On the spot.I pick you as a Yogalattes girl.Yes.That 99-year-old is nowhere in sight. Everyone we have offended, we have offended more people in the apology, can you smell that sausage sizzle. It's so good down here, we are so distracted.We are trying to distract you from all the people we have appended, gay, Russian, anyone. We love you

Welcome back to Weekend Sunrise, coming to you from Bondi Beach this morning. It's the showdown
we've all been waiting for. Tonight our political heavyweights
Kevin Rudd and Tony Abbott will finally go head to head for
the first debate of the election. Our chief political editor
Mark Riley will be hosting the proceedings
with Melissa Doyle. Riles, good to see you. Are you expecting a fiery debate?

We haven't seen you on Weekend Sunrise for years. How are you, dear boy.Back embracing the family. I would rather be there. How spectacular, Bondi, whacko.Whacko. Do you think this is going to be a fiery affair tonight or a measured approach to the policies?Yeah, I guess it will be measured. Unfortunately the format sort of dictates that. It's like, you know the same format they used when Edmond Barton debated George Read. But we would like to see a bit of sizzle. The campaign hasn't much of that up to now. I think they will be fairly calm, hitting their lines. No doubt, Tony Abbott will be with his advisors after he has finished the run as Kevin Rudd is probably is now, running through all the options, what sort of questions they are likely to get and the answers. But, we would like to see a bit of sizzle tonight.

We've seen the Coalition surge ahead
in recent polls. How much of a confidence boost will
this be for Mr Abbott?

OK.

Yeah, Sammy, campaigns are all about momentum. There is no doubt that Tony Abbott has it early on. It's a bit like the City2Surf. He is out there running on the flat and Kevin Rudd is heading to Heartbreak Hill. You would rather be ahead than behind in the pack. At the moment, Tony Abbott is ahead. He would be happy.All the polls are saying, the number one concern of voters is the economy. Despite our on going economy. Despite our on AAA rating, despite the official statistics saying that our standard of living and overall wages have indeed risen, everyone is concerned that we are heading down the gurgler. Will this be the only real topic of debate do you think?No, I mean, there is a disconnect between what is happening in the real economy and what people think is happening and politics is to blame for that. Good politics by the opposition, if you look at it that way and being able to negate the gains that the government has made over the past few years. Yes, we are doing better than the rest of the world. International factors, there is recession ri factors that are raring their heads. It's a really difficult time. I think the other key issues will be those nominated by the candidates. Kevin Rudd is running hard on schools funding. $ funding. $1. funding. $1.5 million per school that he is offering around the country. Tony Abbott has nominated this as a referendum on the carbon tax or the Emissions Trading Scheme. tax or the this as a referendum on the carbon
tax or the Emissions Trading Scheme so climate change has to get in there and asylum Seekers is the other issues. String them up, throw them out, put them in the stocks, hurl rotten tomatoes at them sort of policy and they will try and outdo each other on that.It will be all the old chestnuts.

For many, the City2Surf
is a chance to get together with family and friends.

Handling on, hang on. Interrupt us. Was that Kurt Fearnley crossing the line. Terrific.

There you go.Fantastic.Isn't he a fabulous guy? My God he is a fit man.Credible. The hard part would be can wurt is keeping the pace off coming down the steep hill. Congratulations Kurt. Well done to you.I love that guy.As I was say you.I love that guy.As I was as I was saying before I was so rudely interrupted by Australia's premier ear wheelchair athlete. There premier ear wheelchair athlete. There are a few elite few in this year's runners.

But for an elite few, like Sydney
barrister's clerk Paul Daley, running is simply a way of life. Daley is part
of the City2Surf legends - a group of runners who've done
the dash from Hyde Park to Bondi every year since it began
42 years ago.

When I first ran the City2Surf
I was 25. I'm now 68, so this is my 43rd run. The first one was from George St,
near the Town Hall and there was no tunnel,
so we ran up through Kings Cross. and I think there were 2,500 runners
at that time. There were characters and I remember from day one
there was a chap in a Superman suit but there was only about one or two. Now it would make up
about 5%-10% of the crowd. This year

I've been told in the City2Surf
there will be 85,000 runners. I do believe a lot of people,
after the first one, do get hooked and they want to do it
a little bit faster or just do it a little bit better so they're aren't as sore
on the Monday or the day after because if you don't prepare,
you pay a price. I'd say about 80% would train
for the run and that means not training like
an Olympic athlete, just doing exercise which will
enable them to complete the course. There are a lot of people that
just want to complete the course and I think that's what
the run is about, just the community spirit. Why do I do it? I think it's a little challenge
every year to let me know that I'm still
capable of completing a course of about 14km of hard running. I don't run hard anymore, I just do
it to complete the course now. I used to be flat out
but not anymore. It's one of
the most spectacular runs because you're going through
beautiful suburbs starting in the city

and then you get into
a bit of breeze up at Dover Heights and if you look back to your right,
you've got the city and if you look to your left
you've got the ocean and then you come down to the ocean, so what better run in the world
could you have? It's just absolutely fantastic. The weather, the last couple
of years has been very cold but we've only ever had -
now this is unbelievable situation - we've only ever had one light little
shower at the start in 43 years. We have never had a run where it's been completely raining
the whole day, so the weather has
predominantly been excellent. Did I have a garbage bag on? No, I've always taken a jumper, which I have discarded
with about 10 minutes to go. I didn't like the garbage bag look. It's a little bit different
when we get to the finish line. Being in the first race - we do get a preferential start,
we're right up the front so we've got about 85,000 people,
at that time, behind us. It's a little bit different
when we get to the finish line.

Good on you, 42 years of running it. Isn't that a great story, every year?Every single year. Mind you if, you have been a barrister's Clarke, you know what it's like to do something hard over and over again. Working for barristers.Did you know him in your former life? Yes, indeed, very lovely

Simon is down at the finish line with a gorgeous man, Kurt Fearnley. An iconic race, an An iconic race, an iconic Australian.What a beautiful day. I haven't seen Bondi this beautiful. It is just ridiculously beautiful today. How was that today?In the start line there, you are part of 80,000 people who are migrating into Bondi. It's got a real kind of momentum to it. I love being a part of it.What about your time?Quick. Really quick. I was pretty happy with it. I've had a quiet few months, spending a bit of time with family. I spent April away for Boston and London. I am home until khi and London, I am feeling pretty strong and times are good.What about the speeds you are hitting on the downhill parts of this race? They - the first couple of hills, we actually let it go. I was with Nathan, who is flying at the moment. We let the chairs kind of have a bit of a run. I think we topped mid 60kmh an hour mark and it's a - it was only because it was dry, because there wasn't a lot of wind. We got to test it out a bit.Lucky it wasn't a school day. You would be getting tickets.I saw the police next to me. I thought, they won't pull me up. Surely they can't get me today. It was nice and safe and nice and fun. Good race.Fantastic race. Lovely to talk to you. We all love you on this program and you really are an inspiration to so many people. Thank youThank you, mate, any time.You said it, Simon. We so love him.60kmh downhill. I mean, yes, talented but also brave.Yeah. Bloody hell!

We're just seeing the first runners
cross the finish line

Very unusual for a Bondi.They are towing cars away left, right and centre.I hope they are towing some of the people who drive them. That carpark is amazing.Look how fast Ben is going. He is sprinting at the end of 14ks. I just marvel at how they can do that.That's right. Simon is down at the finish line with Steve Moneghetti. Simon?

Simon. We are at the finish line, 39. Simon. We are at the finish line, 39.52, Monna's record won't be broken today. We have got a wheelchair athlete coming around the final bend. This is a pretty quick time.A competitive race and perfect conditions. That makes the fast times.Now, I know you've had to get to the finish line so you really haven't been able to see any of the haven't been able to see any of race but we think it's Ben Maro who is coming around the corner now.He has been in great form. That would be a little bit of a surprise. But we look forward to seeing who is that first one to make the run home. It is remarkable that the gun went at 7. at 7.55. And here, just over at 7.55. And here, just over 40 minutes later, the 14ks they have run, up Heartbreak Hill as well, into Bondi, a magnificent crowd here today. Really the conditions couldn't be any better.Perfect conditions. Great support out on the course. Peel course. People will come out on the morning to watch the runners go past.How do you feel? I mean, you've won it four times before, but it still must get the juices flowing when you are a part of thisIt certainly does. Being on the start line, the build up, the adrenalin. You can tell, I've got that excitement because you are part of what is a special occasion for Australian distance running, Australian community events, it's everything that 85,000 people on the streets down to Bondi.It is fantastic, mate. Just to think that you know, there were round you know, there were round about 30,000, as Steve aid, 85,000 runners today. We have the runner coming into the finish line. It's - red and blue, we think there. That is Ben Maro Steve is saying. Finishing really strong. 41. really strong. 41.35, we really strong. 41.35, we are ticking over around about 15 or 20 seconds, a second place about 200 metres back. This is Ben Maro.That is Liam Adams running him down so a very competitive race.Fantastic, the winning time will be around about 41. winning time will be around about 41.54 right there.
