Paris Olympics - Intv Max Whitlock - final Olympics and being Britain's 'Greatest Gymnast'

Interview Max Whitlock, on being Britain's greatest gymnast, talking over footage of him training in a gym "I s'pose it's a proud feeling but it's a feeling that I would've never ever expected; I didn't even dream of being an Olympian when I was young. I just followed the process of trying to do what I could do, just working hard at something I loved doing and it's led me to where I am today and now i'm trying to push on and push boundaries and see where I can take it. But going for my final Olympic Games feels very, very strange talking about it and it's almost hard to articulate what it's like... trying to get my words out in the right way because it's still fresh I s'pose. I think it's a nice mindset to be in, to think that i'll just give it what I got" Max Whitlock is a British artistic gymnast with fourteen medals and six titles in Olympic and World Championships making him the most successful gymnast in British history. Whitlock has announced he will retire after the Paris 2024 Olympics. (BBC Breakfast News - 10/04/2024 - AEXZ288W)
