Rhys McClenaghan and Meg Ryan have officially been confirmed as the artistic gymnastics team who will compete in the Olympic Games in Tokyo this summer.

McClenaghan will compete in the Men's Pommel Horse and Ryan in the Women’s All-Around which takes place in the Ariake Gymnastics Centre from Saturday 24 July until Tuesday 3 August.

This will be the first Olympic Games for both competitors.

Speaking on his selection, McClenaghan, who turns 22 just days before his competition, said: "I'm incredibly proud to be officially named as going to the Olympic Games. I mean, that’s a childhood dream come true.

"Especially that moment when I found out that I would definitely be going to the Olympic Games at the 2019 World Championships. It was just one of those moments that will stick in my head forever, and it’ll be something that I look back on in the next 50 years, I still remember it so vividly."

For Ryan the reality of becoming an Olymian is just sinking in now. "It's just so unreal to actually be going to the Olympic Games," she said.

"When we collected our kit it all became very real. I have been working a long time towards this moment, I started when I was about four or five years old, and have been working in the Gymnastics pathway since I was eight. It’s great to be continuing on and competing in Tokyo."
