BETH Tweddle and the GB women’s gymnastics team are hoping to emulate the achievements of their male counterparts this afternoon.
Britain’s men won bronze in yesterday’s team final. It was Britain's first Olympic team medal in gymnastics for 100 years.
Today it is the turn of Tweddle, 27, of Bunbury, and her colleagues in the women’s team to go for glory.
The action begins at 4.30pm in the North Greenwich Arena.
A busy morning at Eton Dorney saw three local rowers make finals.
Chris Bartley, of Farndon, was part of the men’s lightweight four which won through to Thursday’s final where they will be challenging for a gold medal.
In the repechage, the GB women’s eight – containing Vicky Thornley and Olivia Whitlam – finished fourth, which was enough to book a place in the medal shoot-out on Thursday.
Last night saw the GB women’s water polo team – including Chester’s Fiona McCann – make their Olympic debut.
