Two Gold medals for Tweddle

Beth Tweddle has won two gold medals on the final day of the women's European Gymnastics Championships in Birmingham.

She came first in the uneven bars and the floor event - taking Britain's tally up to 15 medals in the whole competition.

British gymnasts now have five months before the 2010 World Championships, to be held in Rotterdam in October.

Tweddle won world championship gold in 2006 and 2009, but said she is now focused on the Olympics.

She said: "I'm still getting results but an Olympic medal is the only reason I'm carrying on.

"I've got so much to look back over my career and be happy with, but my one aim is an Olympic medal.

"After last night the team were on such a high that it was quite hard to bring ourselves back down. That floor routine was so hard, I just wanted it to end, and I'm glad I've got the week off now."
