Nina & Beth

Many compare 2018 World Champion Nina Derwael with the great Beth Tweddle who won Bars at 2006 and 2010 Worlds.

Both competed the most connected releases of the day. Both were astonishingly consistent.

Beth did many different routines.

Click PLAY or watch her 2012 Olympics set on YouTube. Fantastic. If only she’d stuck the dismount.

Nina is still improving. Having won Worlds I’m guessing she’ll be training upgrades in preparation for the Tokyo Olympics. She’ll certainly be able to qualify in the AA even if Belgium does not get there as a team.
