Additional information

LUCKY BREAK
Aged 16, fell on to the top of high beam after routine flip went awry during gymnastics training. After six months in recovery, returned to the mat but quit the sport as his back did not hold up. "I had to make a decision I guess to stop gym and look elsewhere, other sports to participate in… divers always want gymnasts to come and try, especially the coaching, because we're so similar. I went 'why not - it can't hurt'." (sunshinecoastdaily.com.au, 21 Jul 2016)
