I began my gymnastics journey at the age of 2 & 1/2 years and was selected into my first development squad at 5 years old. Over the years I had developed a real love for Tumbling so at the age of 7 I chose to specialise in this discipline and from that point I have never looked back. I maintained a 15 hours per week training schedule around school with not much other time to do anything else however, I loved gymnastics so at that age, it was no sacrifice.
I had qualified to compete in my first British Championships at 9 years old and at 10 years old I was selected into the Great Britain squad. I was so proud & went on to competed & medal in my first international competition in Portugal at the age of 11. It was at this early stage that I set my goals on becoming a European Champion & World Champion at Junior level & at Senior level with British Champion titles along the way. Between the ages of 11-16, I maintained my high level of success on both the national & international circuit winning gold medals in World Cups as well as 2 British titles. At 14, I went on to win my first Junior European Team gold & make history by being the first Junior Mens GB team to win the title. This was an epic moment!
The year 2018 was a year to remember for me. Not only did I medal with a bronze in my first Senior British Championship, competing alongside gymnasts that have been & still are my role models but I achieved my first 2 goals; I become the Junior European Champion and the World Champion.
My goals are now to repeat my successes on the Senior international circuit & to continue to be a role model to the younger gymnasts coming through the systems and to further pursue my future and training as a stuntman. It has been an incredible journey with many highs & many lows but the journey has taught me so many life lessons & has moulded me into the young man I am today. One of the main lessons I have learnt is; do not let anyone dictate the person you can become, your success is in your hands. I am looking forward to what the future has in store for me but in the meantime I am just going to continue to ‘MAKE IT HAPPEN’!
