Highlights. . . Battled back from a broken leg sustained in November 2015 to represent Great Britain at the 2016 Olympic Games and was part of GB team that finished fourth in Rio. He was British all-around champion in 2018 and has competed at three World Championships. At the first of those, in 2015, he was a key member of first British team to win a medal (silver) at a World Championships and helped the team secure their spot in Rio. In 2021 he helped Wales secure team gold at the Northern Europeans in Cardiff.
Birmingham 2022: Brinn’s brilliant parallel bars routine was among the highlights in qualification for Team Wales. He wowed the packed Arena Birmingham crowd with a massive score of 14.450 to comfortably secure his place in the final on that apparatus but, despite going into the final as a genuine medal contender, it just wasn’t to be this time for Brinn, as he would eventually settle for seventh.
