Summary

Follows Beth Tweddle's story of how she came to be one of Britain's top gymnasts and a competitor at the 2012 Olympics.

What's it like to be one of Britain's greatest gymnasts? In this fascinating autobiography, Beth Tweddle takes us through the biggest moments of her life, from winning gold at the World Championships, to being honoured with an MBE at just 25 years old. Follow her story as she prepares for her most important task yet - the Olympics!

Gymnastics is all I've ever wanted to do, but it hasn't always been easy. Find out about life as a professional athlete - the hours of training, competing on the world stage, crushing disappointments and the amazing feeling when you win.
