Olympics: Louis Smith Final

5 August 2012, 14:24

Crowds gathered at Huntingdon Gymnastics Club to watch Peterborough's Louis Smith win a silver medal at London 2012.

Louis, who trains at Huntingdon Gymnastics Club, won the medal at the Men's Individual Pommel-Horse final at London 2012.

Training sessions at Huntingdon gym were halted for the afternoon as club-mates of Louis gathered for a big screen showing of the final.

Louis, from Eye in Peterborough, already had one medal at London 2012 after leading Team GB's male gymnast's team to a bronze on Monday.

Reflecting on a silver medal, Adam Scott, a coach at Huntingdon Gymnastics Club, told Heart: "Louis did an absolutely fantastic job.

It was the best routine I've ever seen him do.

On a technicality he finished with a silver medal, but he has trained so hard for the best part of 19 years.

It was a great performance and we couldn't be more proud of him."

The silver medal is in addition to a bronze that Louis achieved in the same category at the Beijing games, and a bronze medal he achieved with the Team GB men's gymnastics side earlier this week.
