Beth Tweddle was screwed out of a medal on the Uneven bars at the last Olympics. It’s that simple.
I don’t know how much Vodka, Valeri Liukin gave the judges to make sure Nastia made the podium but it doesn’t change anything. Beth Tweddle was robbed of a medal (Yang Yilin was robbed of Gold but that is a whole other discussion)

‘Inside I found a [medal winner’s] pink Olympic baggage tag and a message from Tim Brabants, the gold medal canoeist, who told me I deserved a medal, or at least this tag.
‘It was a lovely touch and I knew I couldn’t walk away.’
Here is for home town bias. Beth Tweddle should be the Olympic Gold medalist on the UB.
