LOUIS SMITH

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Et Sport -

THE golden boy of Bri­tish gym­nas­tics and ar­guably the most high-pro­file sports­man in the Peter­bor­ough area.

Louis is a supremely tal­ented pom­mel horse ex­po­nent who has high hopes of go­ing all the way to gold medal glory at the Lon­don Olympics next year.

You sense he loves liv­ing in the spot­light as he homes in on the big­gest prize of all, aim­ing to bet­ter the his­toric bronze medal he bagged in Bei­jing back in 2008.

Louis has the like­abil­ity fac­tor that has cap­tured the imag­i­na­tion of the main­stream me­dia, hence he has be­come a house­hold name due to his ex­ploits in a mi­nor­ity sport.
