Irish gymnast Rhys McClenaghan’s pommel horse routine went well in the qualifying round at the European Championships.

The 19-year-old from Newtownards scored a personal best 15.266.

The score was better than his Commonwealth Games gold medal-winning score of 15.100, and has the highest score of the first two qualifying divisions.

The score should see McClenaghan comfortably qualify for Sunday’s final.
