  • Enthusiasm - Does the entry show passion for the sport?
  • Knowledge - Does the entry demonstrate knowledge of the sport?
  • Picture-painting - Does the entry go above and beyond to paint a picture for the listener?
  • Delivery - Does the entry fit in with the style and tone of BBC Radio 5 Live?

Step 2 - SAY IT!

Next, you need to record yourself in action!

Simply watch your chosen clip and then commentate on what you can see.

Remember, you are commentating for radio so the judges won't be able to see what's happening for themselves.

The easiest way to do this is by watching the clip on one device, such as a phone, tablet or computer, and then recording yourself on another.
