Gymnast Beth Tweddle wins World Championship gold with a little help

But first Beth experienced a devastating defeat at the bars in the O2 arena.

Her victory says much about her mental resilience after her tearful exit from the bars qualification round when she failed to execute her trademark 'Tweddle’ skill and was sent crashing to the mat.

She said it was the reaction of the London fans that helped her psychological recovery and made her realise that there was still everything to play for.

“On Wednesday I went out into the exit and there were little kids just swarming around asking for autographs and it was them who really pulled me up and made me realise I still had that floor final to look forward to,” she said.
