Everyone Active and Max Whitlock launch competition to find 'next Olympic champion'
POSTED 11 Jun 2019 . BY Tom Walker
Everyone Active and double Olympic champion Max Whitlock have joined forces to unearth the next generation of gymnastic talent.

The two have launched an initiative called "Mini Max", which will offer keen young gymnasts the opportunity to win one-to-one mentoring sessions with Whitlock.

Aimed at children aged between seven and 11, the competition will run until December 2019 and will see coaches at Max Whitlock Gymnastics Powered by Everyone Active organise sessions in which young talent will be assessed.

Based on the Max Whitlock Gymnastics scheme criteria, two gymnasts will be selected to compete in front of the country’s most successful gymnast at a national event to win bespoke training sessions and regular updates with Whitlock.

The programme is an extension to an existing partnership launched by the leisure operator and Whitlock in June 2018.

The Max Whitlock Gymnastics Powered by Everyone Active – delivered at 30 leisure centres across the country – aims to get one million children engaged in the sport by 2022.

“The new Mini Max competition is a fantastic opportunity for children taking part in the Max Whitlock Gymnastics programme at Everyone Active centres and I’m so excited to see the talent we have in the programme," said Whitlock.

“I’m so proud that Max Whitlock Gymnastics and Everyone Active are offering more children the opportunity to try and enjoy the sport that has meant so much to me and my family. I would recommend anyone interested in trying gymnastics visit the website to find their local centre and give it a go.”
