The British press is going zonkers over Beth.
Tweddle, 25, secured uneven bars gold on a historic day for Great Britain on Saturday as Olympic bronze medallist Louis Smith also picked up pommel horse silver and 19-year-old Dan Purvis collected floor exercise bronze.
It was Great Britain’s most successful day in gymnastics history and it saw Tweddle recapture the title she won in 2006, which made her GB’s first ever world champion, and came a year after she won an unexpected world floor gold in London. …
Beth is now full commited to training through to the London Olympics. She’d be age-27. The headline on that post:
