This is an affordably priced 80 page soft back book with over 260 full colour images, covering all stages of the competition up to the historic medal winning performances of the men’s team, Louis Smith, Beth Tweddle and Max Whitlock. The book is a great memory and souvenir of what was an unforgettable fortnight and a momentous time in the history of British Gymnastics. Relive those exciting moments through the colourful photo spreads and read the thoughts of the gymnasts and coaches as they experienced those heady days!

Ever since the closing of the Games I have wanted to produce a photographic tribute to all those involved – not only the gymnasts and coaches but also all those who made the Games happen – officials, Games Makers, spectators, families. This book is my tribute to them all and I hope it will be a constant reminder to them of their great achievements.
