Wales’ Commonwealth Games gymnast Elizabeth Popova has been selected to represent Great Britain at the upcoming Portimão International Rhythmic Gymnastics Tournament in Portugal.
In what will be its 30th staging, the Portimão International takes place from April 30th to May 2nd.
Popova, 16, who represented Team Wales at Birmingham 2022, is now into her second year as a senior gymnast.
Her latest British selection call comes a year on from making her senior Great Britain debut at the FIG Rhythmic Gymnastics World Cup series event in Bulgaria last April.
Just a few months later she went on to qualify as the youngest gymnast in the rhythmic Commonwealth all-around final at the age of 15.
Popova also qualified for the individual ball and clubs apparatus finals – finishing fifth in the latter.
