Gymnast Bryony Page has won bronze in the trampolining, taking Team GB’s medal haul at the Tokyo Olympics to 24.

Page topped the leaderboard with two routines to go, but was overtaken by China’s Zhiu Xueying and Liu Lingling.

It is a second Olympics medal for Page, who took silver at Rio 2016.

Her medal win came after Team GB’s rowers picked up a bronze in the men’s eight.

The team – Josh Bugajski, Jacob Dawson, Tom George, Mohamed Sbihi, Charles Elwes, Oliver Wynne-Griffith, James Rudkin, Henry Fieldman, and Tom Ford – were not considered medal favourites ahead of the race and finished behind New Zealand and Germany.

However, the medal is Britain’s second in the Tokyo Olympics rowing regatta after a silver in the men’s quadruple sculls on Wednesday.

Earlier, Team GB tasted success in the pool, with medals for swimmers Duncan Scott and Luke Greenbank.

Scott won the silver medal in the 200m individual medley and Greenbank won the bronze medal in the men’s 200m backstroke.

The 24-year-old already had a gold medal from the men’s 4x200m freestyle relay and a silver medal in the individual discipline.
