Picture power: Under the bar

Under the bar

"I was positioned in-field for the women's uneven bar final and was photographing Beth Tweddle of Great Britain.

"In gymnastics you look for a good action shot, preferably with a clean black background and without the spotlights in the image.

"This photograph captured these elements, but what made it more unusual is that the gymnast came from under the lower bar."
