Then in November 2021 Joe was back in Cardiff helping Wales bag team gold at the Northern Europeans, also winning individual all-around, pommel horse and floor gold medals. At the 2023 British Championships in Liverpool, he took bronze on high bar.
Birmingham 2022: Joe successfully qualified for the individual all-around final in 12th with a total score of 77.050 across his six pieces, but an ongoing shoulder problem meant he was withdrawn from the final, with teammate Jacob Edwards stepping in. Joe, though, did take his place in the floor final, finishing 8th.
