About Louis Smith

Louis trains at the now famous Huntingdon Gymnastics Club in Cambridgeshire alongside GB teammate Daniel Keatings, with his specialist discipline being the Pommel Horse.

As a junior Louis was a two-time European Champion on Pommel Horse, winning the title in both 2004 and 2006.

In the 2008 Bejing Olympics Louis won a bronze medal, becoming the first British man to win a medal in the individual gymnastics at the Olympic Games since Walter Tysall won a silver medal in 1908.

In 2012 Louis was part of the Great Britain team at the London Olympics. The team won a bronze medal at the event on 30 July 2012, marking the first team medal for a British Olympic gymnastics team in 100 years. Louis also won the silver medal in the Pommel Horse Final.

In 2012 Louis also won another title, becoming the winner of Strictly Come dancing with his partner Flavia Cacace!

In 2016 Louis added to his Olympic medal tally taking Silver in his specialist event Pommel Horse at the Rio Games, despite being disapointed not to take gold, Louis enhanced his reputation as one of the countries finest ever gymnasts.

Louis was awarded an MBE in the 2012 New Years Honours for his services to gymnastics.
