High hopes of a return visit by world champion gymnast Beth Tweddle

Shetland Gymnastics is in talks with world champion gymnast Beth Tweddle to bring her back to the isles for a return visit following her extremely successful year.

Two years ago she visited Mid Yell School and Shetland Gymnastics Club at Clickimin, which proved to be very inspirational for young gymnasts and coaches alike. Beth has said she would be delighted to return to Shetland.

Beth has had an outstanding year by anyone’s standards, winning five gold medals at three major international championships, the World Championships, the European Championships and the World University Games. She is now the world champion on the floor and Great Britain’s most successful gymnast ever.

To recognise this success and achievement, Beth has been nominated as one of the 10 outstanding British sportsmen and women for the BBC’s Sports Personality of the Year.
When she was last nominated for this very special award she was third, this following her first world title.
