Huntingdon gymnasts Louis Smith and Dan Keatings took huge steps towards success at the World Championships by claiming medals in the individual pommel horse at the Glasgow Gymnastics Grand Prix on Sunday. Smith, who trains at the Olympic Gym in Huntingdon, took the gold medal ahead of his arch-rival Kristian Berki of Hungary, while Keatings won bronze. Against a strong international field, both British gymnasts elected to perform difficult routines, and were rewarded for their gambles. Smith's winning performance was scored at 15.75, ahead of four-time European champion Berki on 15.525, and Keatings on 15.4. In the vault, Hunts athlete Luke Folwell continued his recent progress as he finished in a creditable fourth place against another strong international field. Paul Hall, who coaches both Smith and Keatings at Huntingdon Olympic Gym, explained the significance of their achievements.
