18-year-old Joshua Newman is one of Britain’s rising trampoline gymnasts.
He began his career as an artistic gymnast, but decided to focus on trampolining after finding a flare for the sport. Josh made his competition debut in 2010, and went on to win his first gold medal three years later at the Australian Youth Olympic Festival. He has since gone on to victory at three Junior British Championships and won a team silver at the European Championships.
Now competing at a senior level, Josh is setting his sights on the World Championships, and qualifying for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.
Josh trains at Everyone Active’s Basildon Sporting Village up to six times a week.
