A North Somerset gymnast who helped Team GB women finish fifth in the all-round competition has announced her retirement.
Ruby Harrold showed poise and strength during her uneven bars routine, but has decided to finish her career as an elite gymnast in favour of university.
The 20-year-old, who trains at Portishead, will head to Louisiana State University this September - a move she has put off for three years.
I'm looking forward to starting a new chapter in my life in college gymnastics, but leaving what I know behind will be hard.
Special thankyou to all the girls in the GB squad. You've helped make the tough times manageable and the great times unforgettable.
