Australian Gymnastics squad for Commonwealth Games

Lauren Mitchell, Australia's leading gymnast has been named to spearhead a 13-strong national team at the 2010 Commonwealth Games.

Mitchell, 19, hasn't competed since late last year when she became the first Australian woman to medal in an individual apparatus at the world championships - winning silver on both the beam and floor. A series of injuries, including ankle and adductor problems, have kept the West Australian out of action and she missed this month's national titles in Perth.

But women's coach Peggy Liddick is confident Mitchell will be in top shape for the Delhi Games from October 3-14.

She will be joined in the women's team by fellow Beijing Olympians Georgia Bonora and Ashleigh Brennan as well as youngsters Emily Little, 16, and Maryanne Monckton, 15.

World championship medallists Prashanth Sellathurai and Phil Rizzo headline the men's team while Olympian Naazmi Johnston is the most experienced member of the three-woman rhythmic team.

Gymnastics squad: Women - Georgia Bonora, Ashleigh Brennan, Emily Little, Lauren Mitchell, Maryanne Monckton.

Gymnastics squad: Men - Jefferis, Sam Offord, Thomas Pichler, Philippe Rizzo, Prashanth Sellathurai.

Rhythmic - Naazmi Johnston, Janine Murray, Danielle Prince
