Amy Tinkler has become only the second British female gymnast to win an individual Olympic medal after claiming a surprise bronze in the women's floor final in Rio. The Durham-based 16-year-old, the youngest member of Team GB, emulated Beth Tweddle's third-place finish on the uneven bars at London 2012 by scoring 14.933 with a stylish and error-free routine.
That was enough to secure a podium berth ahead of 2006 all-around world champion Vanessa Ferrari of Italy, who performed last. The phenomenal Simone Biles, who only won bronze on the balance beam yesterday after suffering an uncharacteristic slip, eased to her fourth and final gold of the Games with a formidable mark of 15.966.
Team USA colleague Aly Raisman, a champion of the floor event four years ago, took silver. She now has six Olympic medals to her name.
Great Britain have already enjoyed unprecedented success in the gymnastics this summer after Max Whitlock, bronze winner in the all-around event, won gold in the men's floor before beating teammate Louis Smith in the pommel horse final later that same day.
Nile Wilson added further to their impressive haul in the last event on day 11, becoming his country's first ever medallist on the horizontal bar. He scored 15.466 and looked set to take silver behind Germany's Fabian Hambuchen only to be narrowly knocked down to bronze by American Danell Leyva on the very last routine. Dutch defending champion Epke Zonderland fell from the bar and landed face first onto the mat below.
In the earlier men's parallel bars final, Ukrainian Oleg Verniaiev won a first Olympic gold to add to his second place in the all-around competition. Leyva claimed the first of his two silvers and Russia's David Belyavskiy was third.
