Profile

Nile made a name for himself as a top junior winning titles at European and Youth Olympics. Now in the senior ranks, Nile made his mark at the 2014 Commonwealth Games, winning team and high bar gold, as well as parallel bars silver and all-around bronze. At the 2015 World Championships, he was part of the team that won silver before rewriting history in 2016. He triumphed at the 2016 European Championships, taking individual high-bar gold, before going one better, winning individual high-bar bronze at the Olympic Games in Rio to become the first British gymnast to medal in that event. He also qualified for the all-around final where he finished 8th and helped the team to 4th place, just missing out on a medal. Following the Olympics, Nile suffered difficulties with injury, returning to action at the 2017 World Championships and didn't disappoint. Ever entertaining, he made the all-around final, and revelled under pressure to finish 6th amongst a high quality field.
