      What a routine by Louis!  That was excellent!  He scores 16.066 but his execution mark was lower than the Hungarian so it's silver for Louis!

      Silver and bronze, well done lads!!  :clap:  :clap:

      Silver and bronze is a brilliant achievement by our lads.  :clap:

      If I'm not mistaken, Louis Smith won a bronze in Beijing but I can't remember what event it was.

      What a routine by Beth Tweddle in the uneven bars!  Such a shame about stepping backwards in her dismount.

      Beth in silver at the moment with 15.916.

      Down to bronze with two to go.  The russian gymnast scores over 16!  One down, scores under 15.  Gabrielle Douglas of USA up last.  Big error in her routine, has Beth got bronze?

      YESSSS!!!!  Gabby Douglas scores 14.9!  Beth gets bronze!!  :clap:

      Finally a 2nd gold for Brazil! I arrived really late at work this morning cause I wanted to watch Arthur live, and I did. It was worth it though! I was expecting a medal but certainly not gold, it was a big surprise when I saw his score. Well done, Arthur Zanetti!!

      Kristian Thomas up for GB in the individual men's vault final.

      First vault was a good one!  Scores 16.366!

      Oh no!  He sat down on landing, what a shame.  Scores 14.7.

      Bad luck Kristian but well done in making the final.

      I heard Arthur Zanetti's gold medal was the first ever medal (of any type) won by a South American gymnast. Truly a historic moment!

      I watched that. Thought the Chinese was going to get it until he popped up in the end to take it in brilliant style. Really happy for you. I think it's important Brazil gains some momentum ahead of Rio in 4 years time.

      Congratulations to Beth Tweddle on finally winning a medal at the Olympics!

      Well done to Beth Tweddle winning a bronze in what must be the twilight of her career I would have thought.
