Gymnast Ariella Kaeslin has become the first Swiss woman ever to win a medal in artistic gymnastics in a world championship competition.
Kaeslin took silver in the vault at London's O2 Arena on Saturday, behind Kayla Williams of the United States.
In April the 22-year-old from Lucerne had already made history by becoming the first Swiss woman to win a medal at the European championships, where she took one gold and one bronze.
A total of 437 gymnasts from 72 delegations were registered to take part in the 2009 World Artistic Gymnastics Championships as a whole. They run until October 18.
