Glasgow 2014: Louis Smith makes England gymnastics team

Louis Smith had retired after the 2012 London Olympic Games

Olympic medallists Louis Smith and Max Whitlock are among 13 gymnasts selected by England for the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow next month.

Smith, 25, retired after the 2012 London Games but made himself available for selection earlier this year.

However, he was not picked by Great Britain for last month's European Championships in Bulgaria.

The women's artistic team is led by European champion and double Commonwealth medallist Rebecca Downie.

The men's artistic squad also includes Olympic bronze medallists Sam Oldham and Kristian Thomas, plus 18-year-old Nile Wilson.

Downie is joined by Claudia Fragapane, Ruby Harrold and Hannah Whelan, who won team silver at the European Championships as well as Hannah Whelan.

British hoop and ball silver medallist Stephanie Sherlock, British all-around bronze medallist Mimi-Isabella Cesar and 2012 Olympian Lynne Hutchison will compete in the rhythmic gymnastics competition.
