Louis Smith has qualified for tomorrow’s (April 18) pommel final in the European Championships in Montpelier, France

The 2012 Olympic silver medallist scored 15.8 in qualifying to make comfortable progress in his first Great Britain appearance since the London games.

Smith, from Eye, said: “It’s been a while trying to prove myself in every competition and fortunately I’ve made the final, which I’m very happy about,.

“It’s a job half-done. I just have to focus on my routine and, if I do it well, then the chances of me getting a medal are quite high - but I don’t focus on the medals.”
