Taken from the article about the European Championships 2018 here, the British Gymnastics Performance Director, James Thomas said:
"The European Championships presents a tough challenge on home soil for the Great Britain teams as we continue our preparations for Tokyo 2020. The selected teams have an exciting balance of proven world class performers alongside a number of talented gymnasts who are looking to breakthrough and make their mark on the world stage, and what better place to do that than in front of a home crowd. These championships give us an opportunity to test ourselves against Europe’s best ahead of the 2018 World Championships in Doha."
