Whitlock was the first athlete to compete in today’s round and scored an amazing 15.583, a score no one else was able to match.

He originally hoped to win medals in all gymnastic fields but soon realised where his strengths lay. Out of the eight available spaces, Whitlock came fifth but still dazzled judges with his skill upon entering the final.
