In 2012 Max went on to form part of the European Championships gold medal winning team and at the Olympic Games took team and pommel horse bronze medals. In 2013 he became an English and British all-around champion and European all-around silver, floor gold and pommel horse bronze medal winner. He then went on to take silver on pommel and 4th all-around at the 2013 World Championships. In 2014 Max again won the British all-around title and then European pommel gold before taking Commonwealth all-around, floor and team gold and World Championship all-around silver.

In 2016 Max continued to go from strength to strength, making his mark again on the world stage at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio by becoming a double Olympic champion, taking the title on both pommel and floor, as well as claiming an incredible all-around bronze. After taking some time away following Rio, Max returned at the 2017 World Championships and again made history by becoming the first British gymnasts to defend their world title, taking pommel gold with a near faultless routine.
