Joe Fraser and Jake Jarman keep the British gymnastics gold rush going in Munich


Joe Fraser and Jake Jarman both won individual apparatus titles to continue the golden era of British gymnastics on the final day of the European Championships.

After Saturday’s stunning performance in the men’s team final, the pair helped Great Britain to five more medals in Munich.

Fraser, 23, won his third gold on parallel bars, while Jarman, 20, became the first British gymnast to win a European vault title and bronze on floor.

Twenty-four hours earlier, the pair had joined forces with James Hall, Courtney Tulloch and Giarnni Regini-Moran to secure Britain’s first all-around European title since 2012.

Regini-Moran took bronze behind Fraser, while Tulloch was third on rings as Great Britain achieved an all-time medal tally at a European Artistic Gymnastics Championships with five gold, three silver and three bronze medals.

Fraser overcame a broken foot and appendicitis to compete in the Championships and Commonwealth Games in his hometown of Birmingham, where he won three titles.

“I’m glad I’m going on holiday, that’s for sure,” Fraser told the BBC. “I’m really proud of myself and the team who have really kept me going over the past few months.

“The Commonwealth Games and these Europeans, I walk away from both with three gold medals.”

Jarman was not scheduled to compete in the vault but was a last minute replacement for Regini-Moran who decided to sit out the vault due to a sore ankle.

“Jake was a reserve for jump and I thought I can’t give it my all today so I’m going to give that to him because I knew he could have gone and won and he did,” Regini-Moran explained.

Jarman went on to post an average score of 14.983 to share the top spot with Artur Davtyan of Armenia. Jarman was awarded gold based on achieving the highest single score.

His latest medals capped an exceptional few weeks for the rising star after winning four gold medals at the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham.

Previously, he scored 14.433 on floor to take bronze, while Artem Dolgopyat of Israel won his second European title in the event with 14.966.

Like Jarman, Fraser tied for first place and scored 15.333 points with Ukraine’s Illia Kovtun, but took the gold with a higher execution score.

Tulloch, meanwhile, was the last to go into the Rings final with a score of 14.866 that gave him a podium finish by just a tenth. Greece’s Eleftherios Petrounias won gold, with Turkey’s Adem Asil taking silver. Joe Fraser and Jake Jarman keep the British gymnastics gold rush going in Munich
