About Max

Max Whitlock is Team GB’s most successful Olympic gymnast, with two gold and three bronze medals to his name.

The Hertfordshire gymnast won three medals at the 2010 Commonwealth Games in Delhi and made his World Championship debut the following year, travelling as a reserve.

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

Three years later he became the first Brit to win gold at a World Championships with victory in the pommel horse, while he also won floor and team silver.

But more history was to be created at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games when he won Great Britain’s first medal in the all-around event for 108 years, before becoming the first British gold medallist in artistic gymnastics with victory in the floor and pommel horse events.
