Daniel Purvis Biography

Former world number 1 Men’s artistic gymnast, Daniel Purvis excelled throughout the 2011 season and was part of the Mens bronze medal winning team at London 2012.

Daniel spearheaded the men’s team through to Olympic qualification at the test event, and his focus was to maintain his high level of performance as he trained towards the World Cup series and the European championships, culminating in the London Olympic Games. Polite, down to earth and engaging, Dan is the archetypal ‘boy next door’ with an exceptional talent.

Former world number 1 Men’s artistic gymnast, Daniel Purvis excelled throughout the 2011 season and was part of the Mens bronze medal winning team at London 2012.

Daniel spearheaded the men’s team through to Olympic qualification at the test event, and his focus was to maintain his high level of performance as he trained towards the World Cup series and the European championships, culminating in the London Olympic Games. Polite, down to earth and engaging, Dan is the archetypal ‘boy next door’ with an exceptional talent.

Training under the expert tutelage of Jeff Brookes at Southport YMCA and Andrei Popov at the British gymnastics HQ in Lilleshall, 21 year old Daniel first competed for GB at the Junior European Championships in 2006. Two years later he showed his true calibre, helping the British Junior team win team Gold, and picking up Silver in the individual all-around final at Lausanne.

In 2010 Dan entered the senior ranks where he claimed the British Men’s all-around championship alongside Samuel Hunter. He promptly showed his pedigree on the international stage at the European Championships in Birmingham, winning team silver and an individual bronze. Dan won a further bronze medal in the floor discipline at the World Championships later that year.

In 2011 Dan continued to excel. After winning the all-around British title for the second consecutive year, Dan went on to win a bronze medal in the all-around competition at the European Gymnastics Championships in Berlin, and the 2011 World Cup event in Glasgow. He showed experience beyond his years at the World Championships in Tokyo, proving a steady rock for the team as he performed consistently in every event.

Despite the team's disappointing performance overall, Dan showed what an exceptionally capable gymnast he is, qualifying for the individual all-around final and missing a medal by an agonizing 0.323 marks.

By missing out on automatic qualification for the Games, the Men’s team had to finish in the top four of the eight teams at the Test Event to get a full quota of places for the Olympics. Dan produced another brilliant all-around performance, scoring 89.948 for the six pieces of apparatus. By topping the individual standings he secured Olympic qualification, and he added to that success by winning Gold in the floor discipline, tied with Chilean gymnast Tomas Gonzalez.
