Glasgow date for Thomas

27 September 2012 / 18:04

Olympic bronze medallist Kristian Thomas will compete in his first major competition since London 2012 in the World Cup event in Glasgow on December 8.

The Wolverhampton-born gymnast, who won team bronze at this summer's Games and also competed in the individual all-around final, will take part in the one-day competition at the newly-built Commonwealth Arena.

Thomas said: "It's a great honour and privilege for me to be invited to compete at the Glasgow World Cup, up against the top eight all-around gymnasts in the world. It is a great opportunity to put myself up against the best and of course perform once again in front of an amazing home crowd."

He added: "At the Olympics the crowd really was like having an extra team member, encouraging us when things didn't go to plan and cheering us on when things went well, so I'm definitely looking forward to having that kind of support again in Glasgow."
