Stamford High School pupil Lottie Smith has been selected for England after competing in the British Junior Gymnastics Championships at the Echo Arena in Liverpool.
Last month’s event is the most prestigious in the annual gymnastics calendar and Lottie was one of only 22 from across the country to qualify in her age group.
The Year 8 pupil competed in all four Olympic disciplines - vault, bars, beam and floor - and scored 46.2 overall and was particularly pleased with her bar routine.
She finished 11th and has been selected for the 2014 England Junior Squad. She will be attending her first two-day England squad training camp in Aldershot at the end of this month.
