Gymnastics success for Brits
Great Britain's men qualified for five finals at the World Gymnastics Championships in Antwerp, with Max Whitlock and Dan Purvis leading the way with two finals apiece.
Purvis finished eighth in the all-around rankings with a total of 87.031, while Whitlock qualified in 10th with 86.941 to progress to Thursday's final.
Whitlock, who won Olympic pommel horse bronze at London 2012, also qualified for the pommel horse final in seventh place with a routine of 15.408 while Purvis' 15.266 on the floor secured him a place in the top eight for the apparatus.
Kristian Thomas scored 14.933 on the vault to book his place in the final with the fourth best result in qualifying and just missed out on a place in the high bar final after he finished in 10th place.
Whitlock, who was a reserve in Great Britain's torrid World Championships of 2011, was pleased to continue his progress following his double bronze medal success at the Olympics.
"I'm happy, it's my first experience of a World Championships. I made a few little mistakes but overall it was a pretty good start for me and hopefully I can build on that during the championships," he said.
"I started well on high bar, made a mistake on floor but I was happy to try out my new routines, pommel went well, rings another mistake but I stepped it up well for the last two pieces.
"Having competed at Olympic Games and European Championships I think it gave me some idea of what to expect but every event is different and I'm looking to get as much from these experiences in the run up to Rio."
World floor bronze medallist and Olympic bronze medallist Purvis was also pleased to have booked his place in two finals.
He said: "The competition went really well in the end and to finish in the top 8 in the all-around qualification is a great start. To make the floor final was also a big aim of mine coming in to this event so there's a big sense of relief having made both finals."
The women's qualification began on Tuesday where two of the five subdivisions were completed, with the rest to be held on Wednesday.
Britain's Rebecca Tunney scored 54.132 in the all-around competition - a combined score across beam, bars, floor and vault - to give herself a good chance of qualifying in the top 24 for the final on Friday.
