Yorkshire’s Nile Wilson has been named among the 10 artistic gymnasts to compete for England at the 2018 Commonwealth Games in Australia.

The 22-year-old from Leeds famously claimed a bronze medal for Great Britain at the 2016 Rio Olympics.

In the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow two years earlier, he contributed four medals to his country’s tally: two gold, a silver and a bronze.

It is thought that Wilson will be competing in the team events as well as the horizontal bar and parallel bar.

Max Whitlock, the first British man evto win a world title at the 2015 World Gymnastics Championships is also included. The 25-year-old from Hertfordshire will compete in the pommel horse and floor exercise.

England’s gymnastics team leader, Mike Weinstock is excited about his country’s chances, saying: “The team we have selected has a really good balance between youth and experience. I’m really excited to see what we can achieve on the Gold Coast in April.”

Elsewhere, there were inclusions for Dominick Cunningham, Georgia-Mae Fenton, Claudia Fragapane, James Hall, Alice Kinsella, Kelly Simm, Amy Tinkler and Courtney Tulloch.
