Artistic Gymnast Beth Tweedle wins her 7th British Title
7- UP FOR BETH
Not only was it a great day for Beth but also a memorable day for her club as City of Liverpool took the top four places in the Seniors!
Beth's winning score of 59.750 put her clear of team-mates Hannah Clowes, Aisling Williams and Melanie Roberts.
City of Liverpool coach Amanda Kirby said of Liverpool amazing results and Beth's form: " Its all about team-work and determination throughout the club. This was the first floor routine Beth's done in nine days as she's feeling slight problems with her foot, other then that we're really happy with how she's getting on since her operation and she's now back to full fitness and is ready to put plenty of hard work in before the Worlds in September."
Beth said: for her 7 th win: " It's a bit spooky to win my 7 th title on the 7 th of the 7 th 2007! I was really happy with how things went today, I made the decision to alter my second floor tumble just to help my foot and make sure I didn't't injure it before the Worlds, but everything else was fine, winning this year has been made even more special as Liverpool as a club did really well."
In the Junior Section, defending Champion Becky Downie was again victorious with an impressive win despite difficulties particularly on Bars.
Heathrow's Rebecca Wing came second with, Becky's Notts Team-mate Laura Jones in third.
Becky Downie, British Junior Champion: " I'm really, really pleased it felt good out there today, there was quite a bit of waiting around at first but once we got started I really enjoyed it.. My worst routine was bars but I was happy with beam and vault. I'm into all four finals tomorrow and am definitely hoping to do better on bars and improve on floor. After this I've got a six week training camp at Lilleshall and then hopefully if all goes well I'll have the Worlds in September."
