China's gymnastics Olympic team to be announced
Adjust font size:

Chinese Gymnastics Association (CGA) will name the Olympic team next week.

A spokesman from CGA told Xinhua on Thursday that the 12-strong name list, including six men and six women, had been decided and handed in to Chinese Olympic Committee.

But he refused to reveal the names of the selected gymnasts, saying the squad will be announced in the next week.

"We may have a press conference to announce it or the name list will automatically be revealed when the whole Chinese Olympic delegation is announced," he said.

The speculation over the gymnastics lineup centers on veteran Li Xiaopeng, who recently came back with fine form from long-time injuries.

The 27-year-old Sydney Olympic champion on parallel bars was struggling with multiple injuries after the Athens Games in 2004 and had an ankle operation in 2006.

Expected lineups:

Men: Yang Wei, Li Xiaopeng, Chen Yibin, Xiao Qin, Huang Xu, Zou Kai

Women: Cheng Fei, Jiang Yuyuan, Yang Yilin, He Kexin, Li Shanshan, Deng Linlin.
