GB's women have secured a team place and six individual places.

Beth Tweddle will compete in her second Olympics and she'll be joined by new British champion Becky Downie, Marissa King, Hannah Whelan, Imogen Cairns and Rebecca Wing.

Laura Jones was originally selected to compete, but made way for Cairns when she suffered a slipped disc, forcing her to withdraw from the team.

Seven-time British champion Claire Wright will be Britain's sole representative in the trampoline.

There will also be interest in the men's competition, with Louis Smith heading to Beijing after winning world bronze on the pommel horse. His training partner Daniel Keatings gained the nod for GB's other men's place.
