LOUIS SMITH

Sportsman

Twenty three year old Olympic gymnast Louis hails from Peterborough, and specialises in the pommel horse discipline. His first win in an international competition came in 2004 as Junior European Champion, and has continued to progress ever since, winning his first senior Olympic medal at the Beijing Games in 2008 receiving a bronze medal for the pommel horse and becoming the first British gymnast to win an Olympic medal in 80 years. Capitalising on the success in Beijing and with additional effort to promote sport in time for the London 2012 games, Louis captained the men's Team GB gymnastics team, who performed brilliantly to win the bronze medal in the all round team event, and also added a silver medal to his own individual medal tally, narrowly missing out on the gold, as he received the same points as the first placed gymnast, but scored less on execution points.

Louis will be competing in the tenth series of Strictly Come Dancing and will be dancing with Flavia Cacace.
