Beth Tweddle, 25-years-old, with her recent double gold medal winning performance at the European Championships earned her the accolade as Britain’s greatest gymnast in history. She wasn’t the only one leaving with a medal. Her team, for the first time, took the podium at the championships.
Beth told the Chronicle: “The team medal was probably a bit more special as it was the first time at a European Championships that I’ve had the rest of the team up there with me. Going into the championships we weren’t expecting a team silver, we were just hoping to make the team final and see whether we could do better than our previous best, which was sixth. So to finish second was a really nice surprise.”
