Max Whitlock won three medals at the 2010 Commonwealth Games and made his major championship debut at the following year’s World Championship, travelling as a reserve.

Introduced to gymnastics by a friend in his swimming club, he trains 36 hours a week, six days a week and counts Japan’s Kohei Uchimura as his gymnastic inspiration.
