A former Glyn pupil has secured a place at the World Gymnastics Championships, which take place in Glasgow later this month.
The announcement came after Jack won a bronze medal in the pommel horse competition and came fourth overall across all the gymnastic disciplines at the UK Schools Games last month.
He then followed this strong performance by finishing fourth in the pommel at the Northern European Championships in Limerick at the end of September.
The 18-year-old will join a team of six gymnasts, including Olympian Kieran Behan, who will represent Ireland at the World Artistic Gymnastics Championships in Scotland.
The event, which runs from October 23 to November 1, is particularly significant this year because it is gymnastics' main qualifying event for the 2016 Rio Olympics.
Jack, who celebrated excellent A Level results with an A*in maths, A* in further maths and an A in physics in August, deferred taking his place to study engineering at Cambridge by a year in a bid to be part of the Ireland team competing in Scotland.
The current British U18 pommel horse champion, a title previously won by Olympic silver medallist Louis Smith, began training at Tolworth Gymnastics Club at the age of five, and has already competed at the 2012 European Championships and 2013 European Youth Olympics.
