Glasgow 2014: Mother's medal pride for Nikara Jenkins

Wales secured their first medal of the Commonwealth Games with silver in the rhythmic gymnastics team all-around final.

The Welsh team of Frankie Jones, Laura Halford and Nikara Jenkins led for much of the competition but Canada secured gold.

The silver medal means Jones is the most successful Welsh gymnast in Commonwealth Games history.

Nikara's mother Helen told Oliver Hides that she was delighted and how the 17-year-old had been talent spotted when she was eight. Meanwhile former world champion gymnast Beth Tweddle explains the difference between disciplines.
