Gymnast Jemma Bowie-Hallam heads for Special Olympics


Thirteen-year-old Jemma Bowie-Hallam from Milford Haven in Pembrokeshire is off to the Special Olympics in Athens as the youngest member of the Great Britain team.

Jemma has Down's syndrome and doctors thought she would never be able to walk.

But she was inspired by seeing her sister Joelle do gymnastics and is now taking part in the competition for children and adults with learning disabilities.
