Louis Smith @louissmith1989:

Finished my competition @ the Korea world cup I’m happy to say I finished in 1st place with 15.850 just in front of my Olympic nemesis Berki

That strengthens Louis’ chances to qualify to Commonwealth Games.

Keatings, meanwhile, won Pommels & P Bars at a competition in Sao Paolo, Brazil.
