"Lauren Mitchell" of Australia competes on the beam Lauren Mitchell of Australia competes on the beam in the Artistic Gymnastics women's team qualification on Day 2 of the London 2012 Olympic Games at North Greenwich Arena.



WA gymnast Lauren Mitchell has started her Olympic qualifying campaign on solid ground with a strong floor routine at the North Greenwich Arena today.
The four-time Commonwealth Games gold medallist is aiming to win Australia’s first artistic gymnastic medal at an Olympics.
Mitchell is strongest on floor and beam and had good reason to be pleased after her first routine at a venue that holds fond memories for the 21-year-old.
Back in 2009, Mitchell won silver at the world championships in the same arena, and today she looked to be in the mood for more medals during the qualification round.
After four well executed tumbling passes, she jogged away wearing a broad smile before a score of 14.833 lit up the scoreboard.
The Australian team, also featuring WA’s Emily Little, were in the second sub-division of today’s qualifying.
The top eight teams at the conclusion of today’s qualification, which is due to finish around 4am WA time on Monday, will compete in Tuesday’s team final.
Similarly, the top eight athletes on each individual apparatus go into finals, starting next Sunday. SUBS: AUGUST 5
The 24 gymnasts across all four apparatus qualify for the all-around final on Thursday.http://au.news.yahoo.com/thewest/sport/a/-/other/14398663/strong-start-for-lauren-mitchell/
