SOUTH ESSEX’S top gymnast Max Whitlock has been selected to represent Team England at next month’s eagerly-anticipated Commonwealth Games.

The double Olympic bronze medallist will line-up alongside Huntingdon duo Sam Oldham and Louis Smith, Earls’ Kristian Thomas, and Leeds’ Nile Wilson – an 18-year-old who has been called up for the seniors at Glasgow 2014.

They are part of a team of 13 gymnasts who will represent the country at the prestigious event, which will run from July 24 to August 3.
