It wasn't a race he was expected to win, but with the passion of the crowd and the world watching, Mo Farah made history once again.

After an emergency knee surgery in May, Beth was nearly unable to compete in the Summer Olympics. At 27, she is also one of the oldest female gymnasts in the competition. After coming in fourth in Beijing, Beth considered retirement. But after buckling down and continuing to compete, she found herself on the national stage and won her bronze medal in the uneven bars.

Her routine was punctuated by the inclusion of her signature, orginal move -- the 'Tweddle' -- which includes flying over the bar and catching it again with arms crossed.

"I wasn't bothered what colour it was. I saw myself in third and I thought, 'please don't be fourth again'. I just can't put into words what it means to me," Tweddle said. "I will definitely miss all the competitions and the atmosphere, but I won't miss the training."
