BIOGRAPHY

Nile Wilson became Team GB's first gymnast to ever medal on the horizontal bar when he secured bronze at Rio 2016.

The Englishman first burst onto the scene by winning two gold medals at the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games in the team event and the horizontal bar.

At the same venue a year later, the Yorkshireman secured a silver medal in the team competition at the Gymnastics World Championships and, in 2016, was chosen to represent Team GB at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.

In Brazil, Wilson scored 15.466 in the horizontal bar event to finish third.

He added three gold medals to his collection at the British Championships in 2018, after being crowned champion in the rings, the parallel bars and the horizontal bar.

Further success followed at the Commonwealth Games, where he claimed gold in the individual and team all-round events. Wilson then made it a hat-trick of golds in the horizontal bar, before adding silver medals on the rings and parallel bars.
