Marissa King, of Huntingdon Olympic Gymnastics Club, rounded off a superb weekend with selection for Great Britain.

King, 16, will represent Great Britain at the World Championships, to be held in Stuttgart in a fortnight.

King earned her place in the GB squad in competition against the Brazilian national team at Ipswich over the weekend.

The Huntingdon athlete helped Britain win the event by picking up a silver medal on the vault and making the final on the floor.

Her selection means she will join club mates Luke Folwell, Daniel Keatings and Louis Smith at the World Championships.

King's selection also means that HOGC will be the only club represented in both the men's and women's events at what is set to be an important qualification tournament for next year's Beijing Olympics.
