Young fans watch Halesowen hero Kristian Thomas
British Gymnast Kristian Thomas has been cheered on by young gymnasts at his gym in Halesowen, as he just missed out on adding a second Olympic medal to his collection.
Kristian was part of the mens gymnastic team that won bronze on Monday July 30th. It was hoped that he could get a medal in the individual all round competition, but a stumble on landing the vault, ironically his best discipline, cost him a top 3 finish. In the end he placed seventh.
Kritian does have another chance for success though, he competes against 5 other gymnasts in the vault on Friday August 3rd. He'll have once chance to produce his best and taste more Olympic glory.
Check out the tension at Earls Gymnastic and Dance Centre in Halesowen, Kristian's home club, as he competed against the worlds best Gymnasts.
