Gymnastics: Beth Tweddle - Rio Olympics in 2016 is step too far
Thursday 23 May 2013
Beth Tweddle has not ruled out a return to competitive gymnastics but has confirmed the Rio 2016 Olympics are "one step too far".
The 28-year-old, who won bars bronze at London 2012, is Great Britain's most successful gymnast but is taking a break after winning reality TV show Dancing on Ice.
"I'm just enjoying training," she said. "I'm on tour skating at the minute, so I haven't ruled anything out apart from Rio 2016. That's just one step too far for my body."
Tweddle struggled with injury before the London Olympics.
