Max Whitlock

Max finished with a world class score of 90.641 behind Japanese legend Kohei Uchimura who took the gold (92.365) and Ukraine’s Oleg Verniaiev the silver (92.266). …

Britain’s Nile Wilson was also competing in the all-around final and performed sensationally at just 20 years old. He was faultless throughout which included an outstanding parallel bars routine for a huge 15.700. Nile finished in 8th place amongst some incredible gymnasts and clearly has a bright future ahead of him. …



“Kohei has been my idol for a long time so I’m very proud for him and Oleg [Verniaiev, silver medal winner], I’ve been competing with him for years. He’s been producing huge scores in the last few years and I’m very honoured to come third to those two.
