Daniel Keatings continued his successful campaign, landing a bronze medal in the Champions Trophy Tournament in Berlin. The Huntingdon gymnast performed superbly in his preparations for the impending World Championships.
Keatings led the tournament after three rounds, however, a mistake on the parallel bars in the fourth and final round moved him down to bronze.
The prestigious competition attracts eight of the world's top all-rounders to participate in a four-match series, culminating in a final in Stuttgart in November. The Berlin stage was won by home favourite Fabian Hambuchen, with Russia's Mazim Deviatovsky picking up a silver medal.
Keatings is now preparing for the World Championships in London next month, with club-mates Louis Smith and Marissa King also selected for the Great Britain team at the O2 Arena.
Clare Stock was another successful Huntingdon gymnast, in action at the English Championships, finishing second overall in the senior ladies' section, only half a mark behind the winner with 49.2.
And her display on the asymmetric bars was the highest scoring of the day, earning the prestigious Amanda Kirby Trophy and selection for the England team at the Leverkeusen Cup. Luke Folwell grabbed bronze overall, and silver on the vault, at the championships.
Sam Oldham was in action in the juniors, taking overall top spot and winning five individual apparatus golds and one silver. Max Bennett claimed bronze, and four apparatus silvers and two bronze. Team-mate Alex Brailsford finished fifth overall.
