Peterborough gymnast Smith apologises for Twitter rant

Peterborough gymnast Louis Smith has apologised for a rant he made on social media last week in which he criticised judges at the British Championships.

Smith was furious that the gold was awarded to Team GB Max Whitlock instead of him in the pommel.

British Gymnastics have since met with Smith and warned him about his future conduct.

After Sunday’s pommel final at the British Gymnastics Championships I aired my frustration, verbally and through social media because I genuinely thought I had performed the best routine of the day.

Having had time to cool off, and following conversations with British Gymnastics, who have helped me see the consequences of my actions, I realise the way that I expressed my feelings was wrong and it should never have happened.

I want to say sorry to my team mates; to my fans; to the judges involved; and to British Gymnastics for any offence caused. Being a gymnast can be difficult because the sport is subjective; coupled with that I am very driven, and passionate about the sport that I love.

None of that is meant to be an excuse for my behaviour, but I am human and I let my emotions get the better of me. My plan is to get back in to the gym to focus on the upcoming Europeans, and Olympics.

– Louis Smith
