The 2009 Glasgow Grand Prix and World Cup will be held next weekend (qualifications on 15th & finals on 16th May). I´m still waiting for the complete roster… but as you can see on the official website, they doesn´t give us much informations about the event. The “news” category is – 3 days before the meet starts – really up to date ;-)!
So I did a list of the participating athletes according to an article on British Gymnastics.
GBR – Beth Tweddle (UB, FX), Becky Downie (UB, VT), Hannah Whelan / Kristian Thomas, Louis Smith (PH), Daniel Purvis, Theo Seager, Daniel Keatings (PH)

RUS – Yulia Berger (VT), Ekaterina Kurbatova (UB), Anna Mysdrikova (VT) / Anton Golotsutskov (FX, VT), Andrey Perevozhnikov (PH), Konstantin Pluzhnikov (SR), Sergey Khorokhordin (HB)
