Max Whitlock OBE is the most successful gymnast in British History, with over 30 major Championship medals to his name including, four European and World titles as well as three Olympic titles.
The Hertfordshire born gymnast won three medals at the 2010 Commonwealth Games in Delhi and made his World Championship debut the following year.
At the 2012 Olympics in London, Whitlock won bronze in the men's pommel horse final and another bronze as part of the men's team final.
Three years later he made history by becoming the first male Brit to win gold at a World Championships with victory in the pommel horse. Max also won silver in the floor and team event.
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 in over 108 years, before becoming the first ever British gold medallist in artistic gymnastics with victory in the floor and pommel horse events within 1 hour of each other.
His prodigious form continued into 2017 where further history was made. Max became the first British gymnast to defend a world title, taking pommel gold with a near faultless routine and was awarded an MBE for his services to gymnastics. The following year brought more medals with Commonwealth gold in the team event, along with individual silver which followed in the European Championships and World Championships.
In 2019 Max was to regain his European Title in emphatic style which was followed by Max regaining his Pommel World Championship title in an unforgettable World championships final later that year.
Max successfully defended his Olympic title on the pommel horse at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, this made Max the most successful pommel horse athlete ever.
At the Commonwealth Games in 2022, Max was a Batonbearer for the opening ceremony carrying the torch in the name of Mental Health. Max also recently became a pundit for BBC covering major championships.
Max was made an Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) in the 2022 New Year's honours list for his services to gymnastics.
