BBC coverage of World Gymnastics Championships 2007

The BBC will be following the British Gymnastics team including Beth Tweddle, as she looks for a repeat of her gold medal winning performance at last year's World Championships, with coverage of the World Gymnastics Championships on BBC One, BBC Two and BBCi.


Matt Baker presents highlights of the women's and men's all-around competition, featuring Tweddle, and the day's individual apparatus finals on Saturday 8 September (2-4pm) on BBC One and highlights of Sunday's individual finals on BBC Two (9 September, 6-6.30pm).


Full live coverage can be seen on BBCi on Friday 7 September (1-4pm and 5-8pm), Saturday (1-4pm) and Sunday (1-4pm).


The recent success of Britain's gymnasts, led by Tweddle, has continued with the team having not only qualified for the Beijing Olympics recently, but also making the team final at the World Championships for the first time.


Beth will compete in the all-around competition – having achieved the fourth highest score in qualifying (ahead of last year's world champion Vanessa Ferrari) – the uneven bars (which she won last year), in which she qualified third, and the floor final, again having achieved the third highest score in qualifying.


Elsewhere Commonwealth champion Louis Smith (who qualified third) and European silver medallist Daniel Keatings (who qualified fourth) will go in the Pommel final with a real chance of picking up a medal.


Viewers can also see a gymnastics masterclass for World champion Beth Tweddle on the BBC Sport website.
