Olympic medallist Beth Tweddle performs 'wing-walk' stunt to fulfill 'crazy' ambition
London, Aug 29 (ANI): Team GB gymnast Beth Tweddle has completed a wing-walking stunt to fulfill one of her "crazy" post-Olympics ambitions.
The London 2012 bronze medallist, who was strapped to the top of a vintage biplane during the aerobatics stunt, wing-walked over the Gloucestershire countryside.
Tweddle, 27, said it was something she had always wanted to try.
"It was amazing. One minute I was sat on the floor then the next minute I was in mid-air. It was awesome," the BBC quoted Tweddle, as saying.
She said there were lots of other different things that she had not been able to do in the past due to the risk of injury, but now wants to experience.
"I did a bit of abseiling the other day and did some ice skating and I've got a snowboarding lesson next week so I'm trying lots of different things," she said.
"I'm hopefully going to do a sky dive early next year. I just want to have a go at everything," she added.
The bronze was Tweddle's first Olympic medal at her third and final Games, in a career which has included three world, six European and seven British titles, the report said. (ANI)
