The 24-year-old gymnast, who won silver and bronze medals at the London Olympics in 2012, confirmed on Tuesday he is back in training and that his immediate aim is to win a place in the England squad for this years Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. But, after Smith said Glasgow would be his last competition, Hall who has coached the gymnast since he joined Huntingdon Gym Club at the age of eight said: You can never say never. I thought it was the end in London and it is great to see him back. After winning a silver medal on the pommel horse and a team bronze in London, Smith became a household name when he won BBCs Strictly Come Dancing programme with partner Flavia Cacace in December 2012. In July he released his autobiography Louis: My Story So Far and talking to us then, he said: At any point, if I want to get back into it, I can. Ive not got a burning desire to compete but I miss training and still try and do a bit when and where I can. The stress and emotion you carry with you for four years from one Olympics to another, it takes a lot out of you. So does Tuesdays announcement mean Smith now has a burning desire again? Louis decided just before Christmas, said Hall. We had a little chat and we discussed feasibility and decided to go for it. Louis loves the Commonwealth Games. His career really got going with a gold medal in Melbourne in 2006 so it would be wonderful if things ended on a high at a Commonwealth Games. Smith told the BBC: People may assume that my achievements to date will mean a place in the team. However, that couldnt be further from the case. The strength in depth in this country is at a level its never been before, with a large number of hugely talented gymnasts all competing for places. But does it all have to end in Glasgow, where the much-anticipated Commonwealth Games will take place in July and August? The Rio Olympics are just two-and-a-half-years away and, although Smith will be 27 then, perhaps a little bit old for a gymnast at the top of his game, he was beaten to the pommel horse gold by 27-year-old Hungarian Krisztián Berki in London. He is up for the challenge, said Hall. He is fit at the moment but obviously not competition fit. Its going to be hard work but Louis is ready for that.
