BRITAIN’S FIVE HOPEFULS TONIGHT
Competing tonight in Floor, vault and high bar
Unassuming old hand from Wolver -hampton who can be trusted to deliver when the pressure is on. Brought the bronze medal home in superb style in London, scoring 16.550 with his concluding vault.
The specialist of the team, Smith will have a relatively quiet night, only emerging to perform his outstanding pommel-horse routine. If he nails it, though, the benefits to the team will be significant.
Floor, rings, parallel bars and high bar
Powerful Yorkshireman who produced the best of the British performances on Saturday, coming fifth overall in the all-around category. His high bar routine is world-class.
Floor, pommel, rings, parallel bars, vault and high bar
The quiet man of the team, Whitlock is nevertheless the finest gymnast we have ever produced. Will probably compete in all six disciplines tonight, and barely has a weakness.
Pommel, rings, vault and parallel bars
The surprise selection and the youngest man on the team, Bevan edged out the far more experienced Dan Purvis on the basis that his strengths – rings and parallel bars – better complement the rest of the team.
