THREE gymnasts from Huntingdon's world-famous Olympic Gym Club have been selected to represent Great Britain at the World Championships.
Luke Folwell, Louis Smith and Daniel Keatings will all travel to Stuttgart at the beginning of September after passing a set of three control competitions.
The trio will make up nearly half of the British squad, which also includes Sutton's Ross Brewer, South Essex man Danny Lawrence and Dudley pair Ryan Bradley and Kristian Thomas.
Folwell, Smith and Keatings will also compete in a three-way international against teams from Switzerland and Holland this weekend, before flying to Germany at the end of this month for the world final. This event will act as a selection guide for the Beijing Olympics next year.
