Gymnastics events have been staged at the Olympic Games since 1896.[1] British female gymnasts have participated in every Summer Olympics since 1928, except for 1932.[2][3] Prior to 2016, a total of 55 female gymnasts had represented Great Britain. British women have won four medals at the Olympics: the 1928 team all-around bronze; the 2012 uneven bars bronze, which was won by Beth Tweddle, a silver medal won by Bryony Page in the trampoline event in 2016; and the 2016 floor exercise bronze, won by Amy Tinkler.[2][4][5][6] Tweddle and Pat Hirst are the only British female gymnasts who have competed in at least three Olympics.[7][8]
