I am an elite men's artistic gymnast and a member of Great Britain’s Senior Top Squad as part of the High Performance Programme. I am proud to say I have competed for Great Britain at both junior and senior World level.
My break through year was in 2019 where I competed at no less than 7 internationals. I captained Team England at the Unni and Harald’s competition in Norway winning team silver and an individual all-around silver medal. I have represented Team GB at the European Youth Olympic Festival in Baku, Azerbaijan with the team coming a fantastic 4th. I also competed for Great Britain at the Junior World Championships in Gyor Hungary coming 23rd in the world all round.
In my first year as a senior at the Dobro World Cup, Osijet, Croatia I qualified for the floor final and doing so became the first British gymnast to compete a triple back somersault and youngest known gymnast in the world.
I train at Leeds Gymnastics Club 30+ hours a week, 6 days a week across all 6 pieces of artistic gymnastics apparatus: Floor, Pommel, Rings, Vault, Parallel Bars and High Bar. I am coached by Andy Butcher and Dave Murray.
I successfully studied a BTEC Level 3 Diploma in Sport and Exercise Science at Huddersfield New College and was awarded D*D*D*. I am undertaking a Sport and Exercise Therapy degree at Leeds Beckett University from September 2021, which sits well alongside my gymnastics career.
2021 started with the continued Covid lockdown, but training has progressed well including some new skills being built on multiple apparatus.
