Beth Tweddle is already Britain's most successful gymnast ever, but now she's hoping to add to her success at Beijing.

The 23-year-old from Liverpool made it to the all-around final at the Athens Olympics in 2004, but missed out on the medals. This time she's hoping to change all that.

Beth's seen by many as Britain's best medal hope on the uneven bars.

If she does get a medal, Beth will become only the third Briton to win an Olympic gymnastics medal since the modern Games began back in 1896.

Beth became Britain's first ever world champion gymnast in 2006, by winning the uneven bars event.
