The British gymnast looks confident about Paris
Along with his team Louis Smith, Nile Wilson, Kristian Thomas and Brinn Bevan, he took part in the Olympic Games in Rio. Not only did he win a bronze in the all-around gymnastic event, but he was also the first one to do so in the history of Great Britain. Moving forward in the tournament, he secured a gold too. With this, he became the first-ever gymnast to win individual gold at the Olympics. Adding more glory to his feats, he won another gold in the individual pommel horse within two hours.
Recreating history for his nation, he defended his title at the Tokyo Olympics 2020. Although his team claimed the fourth position with a score of 255.76, he focused his attention on his forte, pommel horse. Emerging victoriously, he swept the gold and achieved a score of 15.583.
Now, his aim is to accomplish a golden hat-trick at the Paris Olympics in 2024, as he wishes to perform in front of his biggest fan, his daughter, Willow.
