GYMNASTICS: BETH Tweddle banished memories of a disappointing Olympic Games by claiming two medals at the Glasgow Grand Prix over the weekend.
Lining up against some of the world's top gymnasts, the 19-year-old from Bunbury won silver on the bars on Saturday and took a surprise bronze on the floor on Sunday.
The teenager, a sports science student at John Moores University, Liverpool, was particularly delighted after making her mark in the floor event - a discipline she is not known for excelling at.
She said: 'I have always been known for bars and I have been working hard to make myself known on the floor as well.'
Beth, Britain's highest-profile gymnast, came a disappointing 13th in Athens. But she looked confident as she pulled off a back giant full turn, Geinger and Elgrip series on the bars to be awarded a score of 9.45.
On the floor, performing to a Latin disco beat, she success-fully demonstrated a double-piked Arabian, a double-tucked Arabian and a twoand-a-half twist to score 9.475.
Now Beth has her sights set on the World Cup Final event at Birmingham in December. She added: 'I'm excited there will be a home crowd at the World Cup Final and it will be good for the profile of British gymnastics.'
