Just weeks after winning three gold medals at the Commonwealth Games, Birmingham-born gymnast Joe Fraser has been further adding his name to the history books with success at the European Championships in Munich.
Despite still recovering from an ankle fracture he suffered two weeks before the Commonwealth’s, Fraser has now added another three gold medals to his already stacked collection, making him one of the most in-form gymnasts on the planet.
Here’s everything you need to know about Joe Fraser, including what medals he’s won, how old he is, and how tall he is.
Who is Joe Fraser?
Joe Fraser is an English artistic gymnast from Birmingham. He is the reigning European all-around and parallel bars champion after his wins at 2022 Munich.
Fraser became the first British gymnast to claim gold at the World Championships on parallel bars when he finished in first place at the 2019 edition in Stuttgart, Germany.
Fraser got into gymnastics aged five, as he used to enjoy doing flips at home as a child. His mother, concerned about injury, sent Fraser to a gymnastics centre to learn how to do the skills properly.
Fraser is currently one of Great Britain’s best-performing artistic gymnasts, and it is expected – if he continues his fine form – that he will compete for Team GB at the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris.
This follows his debut Olympics in Tokyo, where he helped Team GB finish fourth place in the men’s team final alongside Max Whitlock, James Hall and Giarnni Regini-Moran.
