BRITAIN'S most successful gymnast opened a gym at a Potters Bar school.

Olympian Beth Tweddle ran gym training sessions with students before officially opening the new Stormont Schools sports hall, which will enable the girls to play indoors netball and tennis, as well as providing an area for gymnastics.

Despite the 36 hours of non-stop training a week, Commonwealth champion Beth still managed to take time from her busy schedule to share with the pupils some hearty advice.

Miss Tweddle, 24, said: "Enjoy gymnastics, remember nothing is impossible."
