After a brilliant performance Â by Team GB in the gymnastics Wednesfield’s Kristian Thomas and team mate Dan Purvis finished 7th and 13th respectively in the All Around gymnastics individual final.
It is the first time either have competed in the Olympics and this performance follows their Bronze medal awarded for Â the team eventÂ earlierÂ this week.
Kristian’s sister in law, Emma Â Clarke, tweeting from home as the rest of the family were in the North Grenwich Arena cheering Kritian on Â said she was Â “Proud beyond belief ” – as we all should be it takes a lot of hard work and determination to qualify for the Olympics, let alone reach the final in such style. Â Kristian is a great role model for Wednesfield’s youth.
