Biography

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.

He impressed at this year’s Olympic test event, winning team gold and pommel horse silver.

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.

At the 2012 Olympics in London Whitlock won bronze in the men's pommel horse and as part of the men's team category.
