Huntingdon gymnast Louis Smith has been selected for his third Olympic Games.
The 27 year-old star was named in the Great Britain squad for Rio this lunchtime.
It means the Huntingdon Gymnastics Club ace will have the opportunity to battle for a third individual medal.
Smith won bronze on his specialist piece of apparatus - the pommel horse - in Beijing in 2008 before adding a silver medal to his collection in London four years later.
He also helped Great Britain win a team bronze medal in their home Olympics before taking a break from the sport before returning to compete at the top level again from 2014 onwards.
Smith said: “It is fantastic to be back for a third Olympics. Each Games has meant something different at the time and this one feels just as special.”
