Today sees the official start of the XX Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, with the Opening Ceremony kicking off The Games tonight (Wednesday 23rd July) from Celtic Park.  71 Commonwealth nations and territories will be taking part in the event from 24th July to 3rd August. 

For English Gymnastics, we have three teams participating:

Rhythmic Thu 24th July - Sat 26th July     The SSE Hydro, Glasgow
Men's Artistic Mon 28th July - Fri 1st August The SSE Hydro, Glasgow
Women's Artistic       Mon 28th July - Fri 1st August       The SSE Hydro, Glasgow

Ahead of the start of the Rhythmic competition tomorrow, the England Team (from L-R) of Stephani Sherlock, Mimi-Isabella Cesar and Lynne Hutchison, with Team Coach Deb Hows managed to get a quick look inside the Hydro to get a feel for what it will be like to compete there.

All competitions will be shown by the BBC, with Matt Baker again presenting for Gymnastics, with Commentators Mitch Fenner and Christine Still and Special Guest Presenter Beth Tweddle MBE.

Good Luck Team England...
