Double Olympic champion, Max Whitlock MBE, will lead the British challenge in the Japanese capital, and will be joined by current world parallel bars champion Joe Fraser, current British all-around champion James Hall and 2021 European medallist Giarnni Regini-Moran.

The successful team members all came through a rigorous judging and selection process.

Jarman is a member of Huntingdon Gym Club and has made giant strides of improvement in recent months.
