Crowds gather at Huntingdon Gymnastics Club to watch Peterborough's Louis Smith win silver medal at London 2012.
Peterborough: Louis Smith Homecoming
A celebration will be held in Peterborough marking gymnast Louis Smith's success at London 2012.
Louis, who is from Eye in Peterborough, won a bronze in the men's team gymnastics and a silver in the men's individual pommel-horse at the games.
A homecoming parade will be held this Saturday (18 August) to celebrate his achievements.
Peterborough City Council is expected to confirm further details about the event later this week.
Eye Councillor David Sanders told Heart: "He's been a credit to himself, a credit to his country and the city of Peterborough.
The village of Eye is over the moon for him."
Councillor Sanders has put forward a motion to the Council that Louis be given the ceremonial title "Freedom of Peterborough".
Councillor Sanders added: "I have recommended Louis to the Honours Committee for consideration for Freedom of the City.
It is the highest award that the City can give an individual.
With Louis being so young, he would have the rest of his life to enjoy that status."
The Honours Committee would have to ratify the title before it would be given to Louis.
A statement from Peterborough City Council reads: "Peterborough City Council would like to congratulate local Olympian Louis Smith on winning a silver medal at the London 2012 Olympic Games in the men's pommel horse final.
The city council will be welcoming Louis by hosting a celebration event on Saturday 18 August.
Further details of the event will be announced as soon as they are confirmed.
The silver medal Louis won adds to the bronze medal he earned as a part of the GB gymnastics team and the bronze medal he won on the pommell horse at the Beijing Olympics in 2008.
