Joe Fraser wins all-around gymnastics gold at the European Championships

Joe Fraser, the winner of the men's all-around title at the 2022 European Gymnastics Champion in Munich

Great Britain’s Joe Fraser won gold in the men’s all-around gymnastics gold at the European Championships in Munich.

The 23-year-old became the first British man to win a European all-around gold medal after claiming a remarkable hat-trick of titles at the Commonwealth Games.

He held his nerve and pulled off a bold routine on his final apparatus, the high bar, to beat Turkish gymnasts Ahmet Onder and Adem Asil to gold.

The British gymnast scored a total of 85.565, ahead of Onder (85,131) and Asil (84,465).

With the silver and bronze medals, Onder and Asil made also made history for Turkey as their country had never won a medal in the all-around competition at a European Championships.

“This is incredible,” Fraser said. “There is no doubt that the overall medal is the big one.

“I’ve always loved the all-rounder whenever people ask, I say I’m an all-rounder and now I feel like I can say that with real confidence and pride.”

Fraser dedicated his history-making European title to his team-mates – or band of “brothers”.

Fraser said: “I can’t even explain it – I class this team as my brothers. I’ve spent more time with them than I have my own family, so we know each other inside and out, back to front.

“They’ve believed every step of the way in times I didn’t. I always said one day this will make some big story.

“I don’t know if I actually believed – I knew I could do it, but I’ve actually made it a reality, and I couldn’t have done it without the team.

“It’s incredible,” added Fraser, who has also qualified for the final of the pommel and parallel bars. “I’m so pleased for each and every one on the team to get me into the position I’m in today.

“We’ve had lots of obstacles to overcome, but today I’ve stood here having done six apparatus at the European Championships, which is an achievement in itself.

“To walk away with the medal, I’m just ecstatic.”
