- From the section Commonwealth Games
Louis Smith has been selected to compete for Team England at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, despite fearing his days of top-level competition were over.
Smith retired after the London Games but following several high profile TV appearances, including strictly Come Dancing, he decided to make himself available for Commonwealth selection earlier this year.
"It's been tough but I'm very relieved the selectors have decided to pick me for the team," said Smith.
