Louis Smith made some British history in Beijing after he picked up a bronze medal and followed that up with impressive displays in London where he cemented his reputation as one of the worlds best on the pommel horse.
Smith scored the same as Krisztian Berki of Hungary in the pommel horse final but was demoted to the silver medal position after a tiebreak ruled in his opponent's favour due to his higher execution score.
Smith had already led the mens gymnastic team to Britain's first team gymnastics medal for a century although, just like his silver medal, it was controversial.
For a moment it seemd like Smith and co had won silver, until the Japanese team successfully contested the final score given to one of their gymnasts and they had to settle for bronze.
Smith was catapulted into stardom from 2008 and is one of Team GB's most marketable and recognised faces, but having a huge drain on his time has not stopped him putting in the hours in the gym.
His Olympic medals, plus two silver medals at the European Championships and his World Championship silver on the horse, show Smith is one of the best athletes in this event.
